New sign triggers complaints BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

A new digital billboard near the Queensborough Bridge has drawn the wrath of some motorists and prompted a review to see if mitigation is required. Last year, the City of New Westminster approved the installation of four new digital billboards at Highway 91A at the Queensborough Bridge, Highway 91 at the approach to the Alex Fraser Bridge, on Brunette Avenue at the Highway 1 East on-ramp and on McBride Boulevard at the south end of the Pattullo Bridge. The city has received a couple of complaints about the sign that was recently completed near the Queensborough Bridge. “I call it a big Jumbotron TV. I try not to look because it’s a distraction,” truck driver Atti Torok told The Province newspaper. “You watch. The first thing there will be an accident and they’ll say they were looking at the sign and weren’t paying attention. They’re asking for trouble.” The City of New Westminster has signed a 20-year agreement with All Vision Canada, which will pay all costs associated with building, maintaining and marketing the digital signs. The city expects the signs

Roger Emanuels, the city’s manager of design and construction, said he’s had two calls from people complaining about the signs. “They are saying they are bright and they are distracting,” he said. “We are

working with All Vision. They are going to do some night monitoring.” Emanuels said the city and All Vision would be looking at lighting levels to see if an adjustment is needed to reduce lighting on the Queensborough sign. “It’s built into it,” he said about lighting-adjustment mechanisms. “We want to

make sure it is working properly.” According to Emanuels, the signs have 256 dimming levels so adjustments can be made if necessary. The signs are designed to dim or brighten, depending on the conditions. “We would be looking at mitigation ◗Sign Page 5

District will cut 58 jobs, delay repayment BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

The New Westminster board of education sliced millions from next year’s budget on Tuesday night to plow through a hefty $3.5-million structural deficit – including cutting 58 positions across the district – but delayed repaying the government the more than $2.8 million it owes from last year.

Stephen Gorrie CELL

The board of education had a multi-million dollar “surprise” deficit from last year and is projecting a $1-million deficit this year, but labour-endorsed trustees voted against a staff-recommended repayment plan that would have them paying back $467,500 next year. “I’m not going to support the motion because the government has given us until year-three to repay …,” said board of edu-

Turning purple to end domestic abuse BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

Her last name might be Green, but these days she’s all about going purple, to show that domestic violence has no place in her community. Local business owner Leona Green is participating in the Purple Light Nights campaign, where local businesses and residents buy purple lights to hang in their windows to raise awareness about the thousands of women and children who endure the horrors of abuse. “I think it would be cool if the all of New West was purple,” said Green, who owns Greens and Beans Deli on East Columbia Street. “The goal of the project is to have as many business owners and residents buy a string of lights to hang on their doors and businesses to send a message and develop public awareness on domestic violence and building on healthy relationships,” Jodi Sturge, with the Elizabeth Fry Society, told The Record. The project is also supported by the Department of Justice Canada, EFry and New Westminster’s community coordination for women’s safety. In 2011, police reported about 78,000 incidents of violence against women by current or previous intimate partners, including those by spouses (common-law and legally married partners) and dating partners, according to Statistics Canada. The overall rate of intimate partner violence against women was 542 per 100,000 women, almost four times higher than the rate for men, according to the stats. The annual Purple Lights Campaign – this is the third year it’s being held in New Westminster – aligns with Prevention of Violence Against Women Week and

City says Chief Skugaid has to ship out BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The City of New Westminster wants Chief Skugaid to ship out from its berth on the waterfront. Council has approved a staff recommendation to have the city solicitors pursue a Supreme Court order compelling the owner of the Chief Skugaid to remove the vessel from the water lot next to the Fraser River Discovery Centre. “The Chief Skugaid poses significant safety and liability risks with respect to individuals accessing the vessel and with respect to it sinking, capsizing or catching fire – and possible damage to the

esplanade,” said a staff report. “There are a number of legal actions the city can pursue with respect to the Chief Skugaid trespassing on the city water lots.” Because “it could be implemented expeditiously” and “limit costs to the city”, the city chose to pursue a Supreme Court order that would compel David Cobb to remove the Chief Skugaid from the city water lot and to refrain from reentering the site. A staff report stated the legal costs for a Supreme Court order would likely range from $5,000 to $10,000, but the city could recover a “signification portion” of these costs from Cobb if the city is suc-

cessful in obtaining the order. According to the staff report, the City of New Westminster served Cobb with a notice to vacate on March 14, and issued him a further written notice on March 22 that stated the Chief Skugaid is trespassing on the city water lot and is in violation of the Trespass Act. “In addition, Mr. Cobb was notified to remove the vessel from the site by March 25, 2013. He has not subsequently removed the vessel,” said an April 8 report to council. “Instead, Mr. Cobb corresponded to staff stating he does ◗Skugaid Page 10

There are different things you can do.” Emanuels said the response to the digital signs has been “typical” of comments heard in other communities where similar signs were installed. “Every time they go up, same kind of comments,” he said. “We take them seriously.” Emanuels suspects part of the issue is the signs are new and went up quite quickly. While lighting has been one of the concerns raised, callers to city hall have also voiced concerns about the location of the Queensborough sign. “I think they talk to both,” Emanuels said. “They say it is bright, it is close to the road.” Emanuels said the city worked “very carefully on the placement” of the signs with transportation safety engineers to ensure they were located in appropriate locations. Considerations included placement on straight stretches of road, in areas where motorists aren’t making a lot of lane changes and merging, and

OUR VIEW

Some folks believe the best thing to do if you accidentally dial 9-1-1 is to quickly hang up. Not so! Clear the decks by letting them know it was an accident. Otherwise, they’ll expend extra effort trying to find you – effort the next caller may really need. On that note, E-Comm would rather you didn’t pre-program 9-1-1 into your phone. Dialing three digits is not onerous, even in an emergency, and socalled “pocket dialing” from pre-programmed numbers constitutes the bulk of accidental, time-wasting calls that

dispatchers receive. Another source of wasted time is from people who let kids play with old cellphones. Decommissioned phones maintain emergency 9-1-1 access – that’s for your safety, not for your kids to fool with. E-Comm’s 9-1-1 dispatchers are trained to help get you through an emergency.

More support for Chief Skugaid Dear Editor:

I have been a New Westminster resident for the past two years. Living next to the Quay, I enjoy the boardwalk and Pier Park every now and then. I certainly would not enjoy the waterfront that much without the presence of the Chief Skugaid, so special and different from other vessels along the Quay, which I think would be more attractive if there were more vessels like Skugaid. Victor Chui, New Westminster

Don’t vote? No right to complain

Dear Editor:

Re: Lottery would get voters to the polls, Column, The Record, April 5. The “Votto” would definitely get voters to the polls. This method is as effective as it versatile.

It could be implemented on national level with government allocating the prize funds. It could be equally effective within individual ridings with competing riding associations all contributing to common goal. It could be run even more locally, perhaps within an individual polling station, as a simple raffle with few neighbourhood civic-minded citizens and businesses collecting few hundred dollars for prizes. But there is one little problem with “Votto.” Actually, it is a very large problem: “Votto” is not exactly legal, as the election act prohibits anything of value as reward in any connection with elections. Otherwise, “Votto” would have been done a long time ago, I am sure. So much for “Votto.” Lets try another option, I would call the Social Participation Card.

receive a card with his or her “Social Participation Number,” valid until the next election. Just like a Social Insurance Number gives the right to work, the Social Participation Number will give a right to complain. No number – no right to complain against the government. Period. No letters to newspapers, the editors will not consider them from people without their number. No legal actions, the courts will not register cases without a number. No calls to your elected representatives, for the same reason. No complaints of any kind when government raises your taxes, cuts your benefits, takes away your educational opportunities, makes you wait for months for a doctor’s appointment, builds a bridge over your house, does not repair pavement on your street, or even if you do not get your tax refund. Is this a wrong idea? Not at all. Citizens who think that enjoying the rights and benefits provided by a democratic society is not worth a few minutes of their time every several years, are free to make their own choices. But when the next election comes, many of them will camp overnight in front of polling stations, I guess, to ensure they vote and get their complaint privileges back. Vladimir Krasnogor, New Westminster

Crack down on evasion Dear Editor:

Twenty million dollars lost as a result of fare evaders on the buses? I take it the transit people are looking for advice. (After all, they were too dumb to foresee a problem when the SkyTrain was built based on the “honour system.”) Well, here is mine, for what it is worth: Select a problem area. Have three teams of transit cops on the ready in strategic locations. The minute a driver has to deal with scum, he pushes his/her button and pulls the bus over to the curb. He keeps the doors locked and advises his passengers that he has to deal with a police incident. Satellite technology tells your law enforcement crew the exact location of the bus and they hope like hell the raging-grannies-ina-hurry do not deal with the individual before the law gets there one minute later! Fines should be stiff enough to cover the cost of policing and, occasionally, incarceration of those who do not have a mom to bail them out and deal with their lifestyle henceforth. Two hours later, your mobile teams pick up coffee and doughnuts and show up again at another designated bus corridor which is known to your drivers to be frequent problem spots. Believe me, that kind of action is news that gets around fast and will take care of most of your losses. Guaranteed! You are welcome. Ziggy Eckardt, via email

such eye-litter, not put up more. Billboards are called ‘visual pollution’ and LED digital signs ‘light pollution.’ The combination of huge moving lit images and text on a massive billboard is not a pretty sight. Particularly at night. In my opinion, the move is a giant step back for a city hoping to build a green reputation – not to mention the issue of safety. I commute over the Queensborough Bridge daily. It’s not as bad as the Pattullo, but its narrow lanes, shortmerging lanes, curves and confusing exits can make it a challenge. I hate to think what a tourist unfamiliar with the area must think as they try to navigate into New Westminster. Add a downpour, a semi-trailer and rush hour and you have a potentially dangerous drive. I regularly encounter accidents – some minor, some major. To put a huge flashing digital sign smack dab in the middle of a location that deserves a driver’s full attention is just plain dumb. And I find it hard to believe that the Ministry of

Transportation allowed it – if, indeed they had a say over it. We don’t allow drivers to use their cellphones while driving, but we think it’s intelligent to encourage them to read flashing advertising messages while they’re manoeuvring through heavy traffic on bridges? All it takes is one glance at the flashing sign on the right while the fellow in front of you is braking, and you can end up with an ugly chain-reaction rearender at the very least. This is all a moot point now, of course. The signs will be there for 20 years. They will raise some much-needed funds, but pollute the view and diminish our vision for a more intelligent treatment of our airspace. But, perhaps other municipalities who have not yet considered installing their own versions will at least rethink following in New Westminster’s rather large, flashing footprint.

There is a bright spot in the district’s ongoing structural cost pressures – it is getting out of two leases – one for the homelearners’ program, which will move to Hume Park Elementary, and one for the alternate program Sigma, which will go the district’s Columbia Square office. That will save the district $260,000 a year. Next year’s budget is a work-in-progress and the numbers could change, but for now the district is $33,000 shy of its goal to balance the books.

Crosty launches petition opposing coal terminal BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

James Crosty is inviting Royal City residents to sign his No Coal petition and say no to a proposed coal terminal in Surrey. Crosty is inviting the public to drop by his business at 239 Sixth St. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays until April 19 to sign petitions opposing the coal project being proposed at Fraser Surrey Docks, which is located across the Fraser River from Westminster Quay. Port Metro Vancouver has received an application to allow the Fraser Surrey Docks to accommodate a facility where coal is loaded from trains onto barges using a conveyor system. Some environmentalists and health officials have raised concerns about the potential negative impacts of the proposed facility, including local engine emissions from trains and tugboats, global greenhouse gas emissions from burning the shipped coal, dust from train movements and coal transfer operations, chemicals used in train cars and barges for dust suppression, soil and water contamination and risks related to explosions, fires, collision and spills. Representatives from Metro Vancouver appeared before city council in February to assure the city that the application is undergoing a thorough review, and stated the port’s review process will address citizens’ concerns about coal. Crosty is giving people a chance to sign the No Coal petition at his office and pick

up blank petitions to gather more signatures and return to his office by April 19. All petitions will be copied and forwarded to Port Metro Vancouver, with the goal of convincing the port that it’s in the best interest of the entire region and its citizens to deny the application. “As a citizen advocate, I feel I must do something to address this serious issue facing New Westminster,” he said in a press release. “One only needs to look at images of the Delta terminal during a ‘freak wind gust’ to see that no suppression system could ever contain the dust cloud that resulted from the stockpile of coal. We live on the mighty Fraser River – we have wind gusts, plenty of them.” Crosty said he is disappointed that local political leaders haven’t opposed the proposed expansion at Fraser Surrey Docks, other than to seek more consultation about the proposal. Jim Crandles, the port’s director of real estate, told city council in February that the issues of dust are a central part of any review undertaken by Port Metro Vancouver. “The key to it is ensuring that there are appropriate mitigations on the terminal itself dealing with the handling,” he told council. “It’s usually the handling of a product that creates the most opportunity for fugitive dust.” Crosty is no stranger to petitions, having launched a campaign last summer to oppose the city’s plan to borrow up to $59 million to build an office tower above its future civic centre on Columbia Street.

Skugaid: Police and Transport Canada inspect vessel ◗ continued from page 3

not recognize the city’s authority with respect to the city water lot and suggested the city proceed to court regarding this matter.” The staff report stated the New Westminster Police Department was investigating its authority to inspect the vessel, pursuant to the Canada Shipping Act in order to assess the marine safety of the vessel and to determine if anyone is living on the boat. The report stated that vessels trespassing on mooring sites along the waterfront can pose a number of serious hazards relating to safety, liability, navigational hazards, crime, pollution and other matters. Cobb spoke to The Record Wednesday afternoon after a six-person delegation carried out an inspection under the Shipping Act. He said a New Westminster police officer, three Vancouver police officers and two Transport Canada representatives were aboard Chief Skugaid for about an hour, something he called a “distressing” turn of events. “I am going to reserve comment until I can digest all this,” he said about the inspection. “It’s not no comment.” Cobb said he told the officials they could go to the Gunderson or Queensborough sloughs and find many other vessels in greater need of inspection than Chief Skugaid. He said he was pleasant to officials taking part in the “random and promiscuous fact-finding mission” that had been ordered by the city. According to Cobb, the officials looked at various

items on Chief Skugaid including fire extinguishers, life rings and bilge pumps. “This is absolute fascism. This is not democracy. This is not the will of the people,” he said. “If they responded to the will of the populous, they would give me a dock and a brass plaque.” Chief Skugaid’s colourful history has included stints as a halibut schooner, a rumrunner vessel during U.S. prohibition and a fish packer for the salmon and herring fleets.

Cobb was disappointed to learn council had unanimously approved a staff recommendation to pursue a Supreme Court order compelling him to move the vessel from New Westminster’s waterfront. “Council should be ashamed of themselves,” he said. “This is the oldest working vessel on the B.C. coast, maybe Canada.” In March, Cobb relocated his 100-year-old fishing boat from the Larco (143 Cathedral Ventures Ltd.)

foreshore site to the adjacent site in front of Fraser River Discovery Centre. The move to the site that was once home to Royal City Star riverboat casino came just days before a bailiff was set to tow the boat from the neighbouring site. “I will push back through the courts,” he said of his response to the city’s legal action. “It will be a matter of debate and discussion. If there is a judgment under law, I am not going to be in contempt and defy it.”

New store in city lays it on thick BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

Painting a tired-looking piece of vintage furniture can have a transformative effect, especially with some of the delicious colours – Caribbean blue, buttercup yellow and autumn red – from New Westminsterbased FAT Paint. FAT Paint is the brainchild of Victoria Lambert and her brother, Bradford. The pair started making chalk paint out of the kitchen and have now moved into a more than 3,000-square-foot retail store on Front Street. They came up with their catchy name after a conversation about chalk paint, which creates an aged patina and texture on furniture and home accessories. When Victoria initially told Bradford, a scenic artist in the film industry, about it, he didn’t know what chalk paint was. But as she described it, he recognized it as “fat paint,” a film industry term used to describe the thick emulsion. March was a big month for the brothersister team. They opened the store – a twolevel showroom with exposed brick and large windows, and their paint is being featured in Canadian House & Home magazine. “It’s the premier Canadian interior magazine in the country,” says Victoria, who was contacted by magazine editor Margot Austin. Victoria blogs about interior design, and Austin happened to follow the blog. “She said, ‘Send us some (paint),’ and I did, and it just kind of went from there,” Victoria explains. Making chalk paint is a relatively easy thing to do, Victoria says. “The recipes can be found anywhere online. We’ve obviously tweaked ours. It’s not a secret on how it’s done. People do it in their own kitchen all of the time – take an existing latex paint and then add things to it in order to make it chalky,” Victoria says. Evidently not too many people are trying it themselves – the Lamberts have orders as far away as Texas. With Fat Paint there is typically little

One coat is all that is needed for most projects, Victoria says. “Most of the time, I don’t (prime), I don’t even test, I just paint,” Victoria says. “It really does have phenomenal adhesion to most surfaces.” Once a piece is painted and dried, it can be “aged” with sanding at the corners and other parts where distressing usually occurs. “The point of (FAT Paint) being soft is to

sand it,” Bradford explains, as he mixes a fresh batch of Bella Blue, a soothing grayish hue. The production is done in the back room of the spacious store, which features the work of Robyn Murrell from Robyn’s Vintage Nest. Murrell reclaims and restyles vintage furniture. Victoria and Bradford also want to open up their roomy shop quarters and offer workshops. They plan to rent out space for others

City recycling efforts recognized BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster’s recycling initiatives have been recognized by the Waste and Recycling News. The City of New Westminster was a finalist in the Green City Awards in the small city category. The awards, presented by Waste and Recycling News, honour municipalities’ recycling programs for their diversion successes, community outreach and education efforts. “It’s quite an honour to be selected from cities throughout North America,” said Kristian Davis, the city’s supervisor of solid waste and recycling. According to the Waste and Recycling News, more than 60 communities were nominated for awards in small-, medium- and large-sized community category. Beloit, Wisconsin won the small-sized community category, with New Westminster and Dartmouth,

Massachusetts being finalists in the same category. “In 2012, New Westminster saw a 70 per cent curbside recycling rate, a huge jump from just 28 per cent in 2009,” Davis said in a press release. “Working with residents, we’re making great progress in reducing the amount of waste we produce.” According to the City of New Westminster, what separates award nominees from finalists are creativity in delivering promotional campaigns and results achieved. Two of the initiatives that got New Westminster noticed were a student colouring contest that displayed winning recycling posters on the sides of city trucks and promotional grocery dividers displayed in local supermarkets. “Our goal is to educate our residents and help them reduce their environmental impact through responsible recycling and waste management,” said Mayor Wayne Wright. “Being recognized through this award shows that our residents are listening and taking action.”

CBC plans Wait For Me, Daddy documentary BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

CBC is planning to monitor the progress of the Wait For Me, Daddy project in New Westminster. A city task force is working on plans to create a monument in downtown New Westminster that’s based on the famous Wait For Me, Daddy photograph taken by Province newspaper photographer Claud Detloff on Oct. 1, 1940. The well-known image shows five-year-old Warren “Whitey” Bernard reaching out to his father, Jack, as he marched down Eighth Street in New Westminster with other soldiers.

T

he message was clear as the frantic woman struggled to explain that her elderly neighbor was slipping quickly into dementia. The sense of urgency was equally clear. The frail neighbour’s family lived far from New West. Her confusion was getting worse and required a level of help that neighbours could no longer provide. The professional care that was being o"ered was insu!cient and a crisis was inevitable. It was just one of the stories I heard that evening as residents of our city shared their concerns about the healthcare system with me. Most of the stories were all too familiar. I hear them on the doorstep constantly: lack of timely access to family doctors, quality

home and seniors’ care, to hospital treatment — even to nutritious food while in hospital. I know we can do better. I know that if we tackle issues one practical step at a time, we can resolve them. I know because I also hear wonderful stories about healthcare and treatment, at Royal Columbian Hospital, and Queens Park Care Centre and our other residential care facilities. I know because I’ve had the privilege of meeting hundreds of people who work in health care — many of them local residents. I know how much of themselves they give daily, how they absorb the growing pressures on our healthcare system themselves, with their bodies and their spirits, and still keep caring. I know it’s possible to #nd care solutions with those kind of

Change for the better, one practical step at a time.

tireless workers — and I know it’s important here in New Westminster, where the healthcare sector is the largest provider of jobs for local residents and where Royal Columbian has become a healthcare destination. The challenge can seem overwhelming at times. But there are practical steps our party has proposed as a start: • more investment in integrated community care and home support, so that seniors and the disabled can live at home for longer, reducing pressure on emergency rooms and acute-care beds. One in 10 of those beds is now used by someone who should actually be in alternative care • a genuinely independent seniors’ advocate who reports to the legislature, not the ministry — much like our child and youth advocate and our auditor general • better coordination with doctors, nurse practitioners, dietitians, and other providers to address the problems of chronic disease, a major driver of healthcare • ensuring that all health professionals use the full scope of their skills so people get access to the primary care they need • local food procurement for our

hospitals to ensure nutritious meals for those trying to heal and recover • lower prescription drug costs through independent drug monitoring and research. It’s a challenge, for sure. And there is more that we can do to support good health — including, for example, a ban on cosmetic pesticides, joining with NDP leader Adrian Dix in his e"orts to encourage colorectal screening, and a poverty reduction strategy. But together, we can do this. One practical step at a time.

◗ IN THE LIBRARY

Contest to celebrate new ’Boro library BY LIZ HUNTER CONTRIBUTOR editorial@royalcityrecord.com

The New Westminster Public Library is about to embark on a new era. In a few short weeks, our firstever branch will open in Queensborough. To celebrate, the library is holding a photo contest. Titled My New West, the photo contest invites people who love the city and the library to capture what they love most in a stunning photo. The library encourages experienced and novice photographers of all ages to submit a shot of their favourite New West event, place, structure or moment – something that portrays the essence of what New West means to them.

Photos submitted to the contest will be judged by a panel comprised of New Westminster community members. There will be five main prize winners and a number of honourable mentions. The qualities the panel will look for include: photos with a clear centre of interest, a picture that is relevant to the contest theme, photos taken from a unique angle or presenting the subject from an interesting point of view, and other characteristics that might set the photo apart. If you want pointers on composing a great shot, the library has books and DVDs to help. Try Popular Photography: The Complete Photo Manual by Miriam Leuchter or the 12-part

DVD series Fundamentals of Photography by Joel Sartores. For children who wish to participate and need some guidance, there’s Kids Guide to Digital Photography: Shoot, Save, Play With and Print Your Digital Photos by Jenni Bidner. The website digitalphotography-school.com provides information for adults and children about technique and composition that will help you get your best shot. All photos must be submitted in digital format.

City home to McBride OUR PAST

ARCHIE & DALE MILLER

I

f you look up Sir Richard McBride you will find that he was born in New Westminster in 1870. For people with family ties to Sapperton, Sir Richard is actually from their part of town. The McBride property was apparently on Columbia Street (today East Columbia) near what would be Braid Street. There are a few images of the property and of a house identified as being the former McBride home. Years ago, while doing Sapperton research, we had occasion to talk with old-time Sapperton residents who pointed to the site and said, “that’s where he grew up.” McBride’s father was involved with the local colonial and provincial jail, and became the B.C. Penitentiary’s first warden. Richard grew up and had his early schooling

in this area, then worked at a number of jobs while studying law at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. After graduation, he articled and worked with the Corbould law firm in the Royal City, developed an interest in conservative politics, and ran for office. He was first elected to political office in 1898. He was the first B.C. premier who was born in the province and when he was premier from 1903 to 1915, at 32 years of age he was the youngest to fill that position. A further piece of B.C. political history trivia concerns his early election campaign, in which he ran on a conservative slate, thus introducing party lines to our provincial political system. Many people who follow our politics closely and decry its many “shortcomings,” probably blame, rather than thank him for this innovation. Richard was knighted in 1912 for his service. In 1915, he chose to resign his position in the B.C. government, and took the position of B.C. Agent General in London, England. He died there in 1917. Sir Richard McBride’s remains were brought back

to B.C. and he was buried in Ross Bay Cemetery in Victoria. The family plot in Fraser Cemetery in New Westminster holds the remains of many family members, including his mother and father. The town of McBride, B.C. was established in 1913 and named for the sitting premier of the province. In New Westminster, a school and a major road were named after him. McBride was an interesting man whose story is worth looking into. He was a man of proud Royal City connections, of party politics, of knighthood and of submarines (that’s another story). Want to know more about Sir Richard and about another book on his history? The New Westminster Historical Society is pleased to have Patricia Roy, professor emeritus at the University of Victoria, at its next meeting to talk of her new book, Boundless Optimism, a study of McBride’s influence in the development of B.C. This presentation will be on Wednesday, April 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the New Westminster Public Library.

ome local folks are grateful for the generosity of the Elks Club of New Westminster. The Elks Club recently presented the Lookout Emergency Aid Society with $600 in gift cards towards tenant projects. The society in turn provided $200 in gift certificates to each of its housing developments in New Westminster – the Cliff Block, Rhoda Kaellis Residence and Russell Residence. Dave Brown of Lookout said the funds help residents buy food for their food programs. “Very much appreciated,” he said of the donation.

The students are doing research on storm water runoff and other contaminants to update Discovery Centre’s information about the effects of non-point source pollution on the Fraser River. Discovery Centre will use the information to update its volunteer training materials so interpreters can provide current examples for visitors when they are using the pollution model. “It is fun to play with the toys and water at the pollution model,” said Shannon King, the centre’s education coordinator. “But our enviro-savvy visitors also want to know what the real deal is, and I am grateful that these students are helping update our training resources.” Through the pollution model, children can place toy cars, houses and animals in a large interactive model of the Lower Mainland. Various “pollutants” are then sprinkled on the city to make it rain, allowing kids to discover the pathways and environmental effects pollution has on the river.

The award, presented to Fraser at Douglas College on Tuesday, recognizes the valuable contributions that are made in support of early learning and child care in British Columbia. “Susan Fraser shaped not only the early childhood education curriculum at Douglas College, she provided leadership and mentoring to early childhood practitioners across Canada and influenced the development of progressive early childhood education in the United States, Taiwan, China and the United Arab Emirates,” said college president Scott McAlpine in a press release. “We are honoured to have had her as a member of Douglas College for 18 years.” May is Child Care Month in B.C., which aims to recognize the extraordinary work of child-care providers.

Building a winning culture at BLRC BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Burnaby Lake Rugby Club moved into sole possession of first place in the Canadian Direct Insurance premier men’s league on Saturday. The resounding 60-20 victory over third-place Capilano broke a threeway logjam atop the eight-team ladder, giving Burnaby Lake an overall 9-3 record and a four-point lead over previous frontrunner James Bay, which was upset 39-12 at home by 3-7-2 UBC Old Boys last week. The victory was Burnaby Lake’s fifth consecutive win by more than 20 points, which includes one-sided victories over the all of league’s top clubs in the past three weeks. The phoenix-like rise of the Central Valley club in recent seasons is largely attributed to the team-first philosophy of head coach Kris de Scossa. “What has come about is we’re in the third year of a five-year program,” said de Scossa, who turned around a program that did not win a single fixture in his first season as head coach. Perhaps the most satisfying aspect of Burnaby Lake’s current success is that approximately 90 per cent of the players who experienced those down years are still actively playinng, said de Scossa. “Everyone catches up. We came in with a modern rugby philosophy. … we’re building a performance culture,” he said. “You have to have a working

Meraloma club to a provincial championship. De Scossa maintains he possesses no magic spells that can turn around sagging problems, just hard work and working from within a club. “When (former Canadian international) Mike James brought me to Burnaby Lake, I could see they wanted the success,”

he said. Now, de Scossa enjoys training sessions where upwards of nearly 100 players regularly attend. “Players are in the schools and in the community, too,” he added. Last weekend, the club hosted a mini-rugby jamboree to help bring the game to the next generation of rugby union enthu-

siasts. Despite posting Burnaby Lake’s eighth consecutive win this season, de Scossa is taking nothing for granted. “We’ve had some success,” he modestly stated. “But we have to take each game at a time. Our final game is every game.” ◗Rugby Page 23

The Esso Cup is coming to town Michelle Toor would like nothing better than to prove herself in front of her hometown fans at this year’s Esso Cup midget girls’ national hockey championships. “From the very beginning of the season, we wanted to earn our way to the nationals and to prove ourselves,” said Toor, a 16year-old defender on the host and B.C. champion Fraser Valley Phantom. Toor, a Grade 11 St. Thomas More student, played on the Phantom at last year’s Pacific regional championship, losing out to the eventual national bronze medallist, Edmonton Thunder, on a late third-period goal. At this year’s Mac’s AAA midget tournament in Calgary, the Phantom came within a power-play goal of defeating the Saskatoon Stars, a team that eventually lost to the Thunder in the event final. Toor, who posted two assists in the Phantom’s 5-1 series-winning victory over Thompson-Okanagan Rockets in the best-of-three midget girls’ final in Surrey last Saturday, says spectators to the Esso Cup tournament are in for some fast and physical hockey. “Our team is really fast. We use our speed to our advantage very well,” Toor added. “We hope to redeem ourselves from last year.” The Esso Cup runs from April 21 to 28 in Burnaby.

Burnaby Mountain to host sports summit BY DAN OLSON REPORTER

It’s tradition that many head up the mountain for a fount of knowledge. In early May, Burnaby Mountain will be the source for sports information as it hosts the second Simon Fraser University Sports Summit. Presented by the B.C. Summer Swimming Association, the threeday event has its roots and some resources focused in aquatic circles. Organizer and SFU swim coach Liam Donnelly notes however that there are also presentations that cross sports boundaries, touching on topics of interest for any coaches, officials and parents.

“We’ve attracted a number of speakers who speak on a broad range of sports topics, so I’m really excited about what we’ve put together,” said Donnelly. “They touch on different subjects in various areas, and these are speakers who are well-known for their knowledge and experience.” Among the speakers are national women’s basketball coach and former SFU coach Allison McNeill, former Canadian Olympic athletes Brian Johns and Lori Fung, performance consultant Dr. Kirsten Barnes and ProActive Coaching Inc.’s Rob Miller. McNeill, from her vast years of experience, has chosen to give a couple of presentations:
