A long life lived well in the city’s West End BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER

editorial@royalcityrecord.com

For an area that doesn’t have much retail or commercial – or anything other than single-family detached homes – the West End of New Westminster has a character built from the history of its longtime residents. It’s known as one of the Royal City’s most stable neighbourhoods, as it’s not uncommon for your neighbours to have lived there for more than 50 years. Elmer Rudolph, president of the West End Residents’ Association, has lived in various locations in the West End since he was 12 years old. If anybody knows about the West End of New Westminster, it’s Rudolph. In the early ’50s, he lived in the area then known as the DL (District Lot 172), but now currently known as Connaught Heights. He then moved closer to 12th Street before moving in 1962 to his current location on Eighth Avenue, not far from Lord Tweedsmuir Elementary, just before marrying wife Margo. The couple have lived in their cosy home for more than 52 years, but it was only last year that Margo became an official owner of the home they’ve lived in. “Back then, if you were a single female under 20, you couldn’t own property,” said Margo. “We bought the house with $2,500 down toward the $13,400 total cost, and it was in Elmer’s name.” Margo said her friends worried

about her and if things went south, she could be left without a home. “I wasn’t ever worried,” said Margo. “Who would cook for me?” joked Elmer. The couple forgot about this until late 2012, when it was time to look at their wills. “We just asked if we could do one more thing, and that’s how she finally became an owner of this place,” said Elmer. Simply put, if you live between Sixth Avenue/Marine Way and 10th Avenue, from 12th Street to 20th Street and River Drive south of Marine Way, you live in the West End. The story of the River Drive residents is particularly interesting, as in 2009, the West End Residents’ Association was asked by the Brow of the Hill Residents’ Association to change the boundaries to allow Brow of the Hill to represent residents between Sixth and Stewardson, west of 12th Street. The affected River Drive residents asked to stay with the West End association and hence, the residences located below Stewardson Way and accessed by River Drive remained part of the West End of New Westminster. According to 2001 census data, the area has a population of just more than 4,300 people, an average household income of $71,653, 71 per cent of the properties are owner-occupied dwellings, 65 per cent are detached homes, only 10

Making memories in the West End From grocery stores to a haunted house to the movie theatre, residents who grew up in the West End recount the early days of the neighbourhood BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER

editorial@royalcityrecord.com

In 2000, the city’s Millennium Project allowed local neighbourhoods to put together a “memory book” for each area, and the West End Residents’ Association – along with the neighbouring Connaught Heights area – took full advantage. West End association president Elmer Rudolph, along with Nory Johrden, helped collect stories and anecdotes from local residents in a book called Memories are Made of This. Here are some charming stories taken from this colOur lection: ◆ Rozel Amy Evanson remembers when Eighth Avenue didn’t even run from 18th Street to 20th Street. “It was all bush around here in 1930. As a five-year-old, I played in a deep ditch that ran the full length of 20th Street on its east side. Although the water really rushed down here after a rain, it was a great playground. We’d float boats down the ditch, holler through the culvert that went under Eighth Avenue and had great fun in the “swinging maples” on the other side of 20th Street.” ◆ Lou Treslove on the great groceries you could buy in the area: “We did all our shopping at Arnold and Jimmy’s Dogwood Market. Jimmy (Niven) was the only butcher who guaranteed his meat. If I got a tough steak, he gave me another one, no problem. His double-smoked bacon

Streets of yesterday: Twelfth Street in New Westminster’s West End, decorated for the 1939 visit of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. Residents of the area have many fond memories of the area compiled in the book, Memories are Made of This. “Spring 1938. When I was a young girl, Dad and I used to go for leisurely walks on Sunday afternoons. … We would eventually reach the land where Lord Tweedsmuir Elementary School stands today. The area was wooded, but not heavily treed. There was scrub, maple and

per cent are apartments and the other 25 per cent are other, ground-oriented buildings. What drew Elmer and Margo to the area 50 years ago is what still draws people to the highly-sought-after area. “It’s such a stable area,” said Elmer. “What I’ve always like about this neighbourhood is you can walk down the street and see people working on their yards and taking pride in their home. … That’s really nice to see, and it’s what makes this neighbourhood so stable.” It’s not all paradise in the West End, as the biggest problem is traffic that runs through the area, either people trying to access the Queensborough Bridge and the Fraser Valley, or people going the other way, either to the east side of New Westminster or Coquitlam and beyond. “It’s been that way for some time,” said Rudolph. “We’ve actually noticed with

how they’ve changed the traffic, it’s not so bad along Eighth Avenue, but you can’t say the same about 20th Street. … You’ll see the lineup up 20th start at around 2 p.m. as they go down the hill to the bridge. “One other thing is you do get used to the sirens,” said Rudolph, referencing the fire station at 13th Street and Edinburgh. “It’s the main route for fire and ambulances to go through the city.” The Rudolphs have seen so many young and old families come and go, and now, they have the second-most seniority in the area, just behind neighbour Stan Campbell, who’s lived in the area since the late 1930s. “I’m never leaving here,” said Campbell during an impromptu talk with Elmer in the alley they share. “My dad built this house, and it’s home for me.” Former school trustee Brent Atkinson has lived in the West End for most of his life and is proud to be a Lord Tweedsmuir

graduate. “About 100 years ago, I went to Tweedsmuir,” joked Atkinson. “All of my kids went there, and it really is one thing that hasn’t really changed in the area.” Atkinson lived there as a child, moving away for school, but once he got married and was looking for a place to settle, there wasn’t any other choice but the West End. “It’s probably the most convenient place to live to get in and around Vancouver and the Lower Mainland,” said Atkinson, whose business dealings often take him to Surrey and Vancouver. “As long as I’ve lived in a house, I’ve lived in the West End.” Atkinson remembers how many retail choices used to be in the area, referencing the seven grocery stores that used to dot the area and the Hi-View Market on 20th Street, which was a busy full-service grocery store that even the large stores were scared of.

“Retail’s changed so dramatically,” said Atkinson. “Now, you have two cars in every family and they drive to retail centres instead of shopping closer to home. … That wasn’t what it was like back when I was going to school here.” “I remember Safeway used to send their people to check out the pricing at the HiView,” said Rudolph. “The Hi-View was very successful until Woodward’s opened its food floor in the mid-’50s.” On its eastern boundary, 12th Street also became less of a retail destination, and that’s meant the enduring legacy of the West End of New Westminster has been its stable, longtime population base. “One of my favourite things is to walk down the alley, see my neighbours and talk to them,” said Rudolph. “Some have been there a long time, others have just moved into the area… Some of us are probably never leaving.” editorial@royalcityrecord.com

But in this case, we’re talking about a watchdog that protects British Columbians from problems with their medication. Considering the high cost of health care overall, a program that saves people from adverse reactions – as well as money for B.C. Pharmacare – is clearly important for the well-being of all. Particularly with an aging popula-

tion, which will need more medication to deal with the health problems that crop up over time. Long-term planning is essential for the financial health of our province. If we cut funding that actually saves us money, we’ll be scrambling for those dollars in a few years’ time. But the bigger cost is the risk to our health. The province may need to cut costs, but not if it means sacrificing the health of its people.

Weak job market taking its toll Dear Editor:

Today’s weak labour market for youth is not only hurting young Canadians. It’s also taking a financial toll on their middle-class parents. There are still 200,000 fewer jobs for young Canadians than before the recession. According to TD Bank, young Canadians are not only losing out today, they also face lower wages for more than a decade as they try to catch up on missed work experience. A growing number of twenty-somethings are now competing for unpaid internships in an attempt to get ahead. While job prospects for young Canadians have deteriorated, the price of everything from tuition to rent and groceries has gone up. Yet student debt levels have remained relatively constant. So who is picking up the tab?

It’s middle-class parents – and in some cases, grandparents – who are stepping in to financially support their adult children. According to TD, more than half of baby boom parents have continued to financially support their adult children, even after they leave school. Fortythree per cent let their adult children live at home rent-free. Many Canadians were struggling to make ends meet even before their children boomeranged home. Now parents are taking out personal lines of credit and delaying their retirement plans to help their adult children. Instead of listening to Canadians on this issue, the Harper Conservatives have cut the number of youth jobs in the Canada Summer Jobs Program by more than half, and frozen the skills training budget at 2008 (pre-recession) levels without allowing for ◗Youth Page 7

Time to preserve Fraser’s historical working boats

Dear Editor:

Re: Chief Skugaid should remain on Fraser, Letters to the editor, July 17. I agree 100 per cent with the writer and, in fact, have suggested that a society be formed to support the retention of such historical working crafts on the river (like the Samson). However, on my recent visit to the waterfront, I could not help but notice that this proud piece of history appeared to be more of a “garbage scow” or a “marine hoarder’s” nightmare and more a blight to the waterfront than an attraction. This must be cleaned up, sooner than later. What can we do as concerned citizens to create a historical museum of working riverboats. Our council seems more interested in hanging $30,000 lights on Columbia Street

and turning the waterfront into a grassy park with little to offer but a walk, sit and look at the water. That $50-million (and more to come) park that boasts (as depicted in many promo pictures) eight to a dozen visitors is hardly good value. Our waterfront is owned by the citizens of this city, and it should not be designed by politicians thinking they know best. We need to develop the waterfront to appeal to tourists, to have the Fraser River Discovery Centre mean more than promotion of a politician swimming with the salmon. There is more to a working river. Yes, city council, a small ferry service to Port Royal, Queensborough Landing and the Starlight Casino is a far better idea than a $10 million pedestrian bridge. We need a council capable of thinking outside the box to share in the attraction and fame Steveston and North Vancouver’s Waterfront Park have enjoyed. Bring the working boats to New Westminster. Build mooring and a water level boat dock where tourists can access the boats. The balance of wasteland at Pier Park would be an ideal location for such a project. The real win would be the access through Pier Park, which would make the park viable, and we could actually justify a concession with or without the Fair Living Wage.

housing projects in forgotten corners of the city. The cost of such construction is prohibitive, and for years all three levels of government in this country have done little except wait and look to others to fund it. Perhaps more importantly, however, are the social consequences of this structural ghettoization. Go to the Downtown Eastside to see what happens when through design, neglect or “market forces,” a city’s most vulnerable population is shunted aside. So what to do? Perhaps I am naïve but to me the beginning of the answer to our housing crisis starts in aligning existing housing stock with our existing social housing agencies. Give owners of secondary suites incentives to partner with an agency like B.C. Housing. Let landlords

charge market rent to B.C. Housing, which in turn would have no problem finding subsidized tenants to fill those suites. This partnership would bring secondary suites out of the underground economy, provide landlords peace of mind and even with B.C. Housing paying the difference between the subsidized and market rent, the cost to the taxpayer would be a fraction of the construction of new units. And most importantly, it could be done now. Additionally, I see no reason why developers could also not be enticed to also set aside a percentage of non-market units in each of the dozens of towers and condominium projects planned or underway. On this front cities can show real leadership by giving corporate or property tax breaks to develop-

ers or through selling city land under market value in return for housing stock. By doing so, decent housing options for lowincome families can be built quickly, at minimal cost and spread seamlessly and invisibly throughout the entire city. Finding creative ways to provide stable housing options for people of all income levels requires bold and creative action. It is the crucial first step in breaking the cycle of poverty, of improving educational outcomes, protecting schools, students and families from the devastating effects of transiency, and creating a society where all, regardless of income, can find a place, contribute and make a difference.

The city partnered with a number of local businesses to offer free programs at Westminster Pier Park, including drop-in yoga, music and movement, karate, music and drama. “It’s been amazing,” said Ruby Campbell, the city’s volunteer coordinator. “It’s been awesome in terms of what we thought it was going to be.” The free programming arose out of community consultation about the type of activities residents would like to see offered on the Timber Wharf, which is the asphalt section of the riverfront park that wasn’t fully completed in Phase 1 of Westminster Pier Park construction. “It’s totally usable space,” Campbell said. “A lot of people had ideas about what we could do.” Having sought community input about uses for the Timber Wharf, the city decided to implement some of those suggestions until a decision is made about future use of the site. Some of those suggested activi-

ties have been happening on the Timber Wharf, while others have been happening elsewhere in the park. “It’s really to get people down there,” Campbell said. “A lot of people who live in that area have said, this is our community centre.” Participation levels vary depending on the class, with Zumba attracting about 60 participants. A karate class being attended by eight kids and three adults, which has prompted staff to ponder the provision of intergenerational activities, rather than age-specific programming. The Westminster Pier Park programs have also inspired city staff to consider outdoor programming in other parks in the city, as well as drop-in programs that don’t require pre-registration. “People may want to register for a 10week program, some may not,” Campbell said. “A lot of people have been saying to us the drop-in opportunity is huge.” Campbell said the free Westminster Pier Park programs also gave the city a chance to promote some existing companies and organizations in the city, as well as River Market, which provides space for the activities on rainy days.

MLA wants funding restored for drug watchdog BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster MLA Judy Darcy is demanding that the Liberal government restore $1 million in funding for B.C.’s independent drug watchdog. Darcy, who is the NDP health critic, joined her NDP colleagues in demanding that the provincial government restore funding for the Therapeutics Initiative based at the University of British Columbia. She said the initiative has saved lives and saved B.C.’s Pharmacare system more than $140 million a year. “The Liberals keep saying that examining the

More than 70 years at Lord Tweedsmuir BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER

editorial@royalcityrecord.com

Patty Farris always has a raincoat and umbrella in her office. Now in her third year as principal of Lord Tweedsmuir, the elementary school with the largest enrolment in the district, Farris spends much of her day making sure the 24 divisions at the school – 14 inside the main building and 10 in the outside annex and two modulars – are centres of learning for the 558 full-time equivalent students going through three different streams – Montessori, early French immersion and regular track. “I can make it from one end to the next in five minutes,” said Farris. “I have four buildings on the site, and it’s good exercise to get out and visit the classrooms. My style is to get out into the classrooms as much as I can.” Don’t mistake size for lack of soul, as Farris and her team try to make sure that each student feels at the centre of the school, which is an enduring legacy of the West End. The school dates back to 1936, when the school board of the day started planning for the construction of a four-room school. In 1937, the two-storey building, featuring four classrooms and a library, was opened. It was built at a cost of $23,000, could serve more than 170 students and was designed as a central unit that could accommodate extensions to the east and west and an auditorium on the south side. The school was originally called the West Side School, though administrators did seek a new name. On Feb. 13, 1940, John Buchan, Lord Tweedsmuir – the then Governor General of Canada – passed away. In his honour, the West Side School was renamed Lord Tweedsmuir on April 10, 1940. Farris made sure she read up on Buchan’s history before starting at Tweedsmuir, and during the daily public address announcements at the school, she’s been known to sprinkle some Buchan trivia into her musings. As Farris takes The Record on a tour of the school, it’s not hard to see the family spirit that Farris, vice-principal Lisa Nasato and the rest of the Tweedsmuir staff have helped build at the school. Many of the younger children are closest to the main office, in an area called Happy Valley. “We wanted to have the younger chil-

dren in the main building,” said Farris, as she helps a student look for salmon fry in the aquarium near the main office. Go upstairs and you’ll find a pretty extensive school library, with many offerings in both French and English. To fully understand how big the school is, Lord Tweedsmuir actually has two lunch hours, the first from noon to 12:45 p.m. and the second from 12:40 to 1:25 p.m., on Monday through Thursday (Friday has only one lunch time). “It sometimes seems like lunch goes on all day,” joked Farris. As Farris makes her way through the Our school, she tries to talk to every student she meets, and she does it in both of Canada’s official languages. “My French has gotten better,” said Farris. “I try to speak French as much as I can with our French immersion students.” With the Montessori students, Farris works closely with Connaught Heights principal Jenny Richter to help the transition of students who start the program at Connaught in kindergarten and then transfer to Tweedsmuir. Farris said students and families will visit Tweedsmuir twice before starting up Grade 1, and staff are always ready to answer any questions that may arise. When Farris heads out to the annex and the modulars, it’s evident the school doesn’t have much room left. Assistant superintendent Al Balanuik admitted Tweedsmuir is near its capacity but added parents say they’re happy with the choices the school offers. But with size come challenges, and as the southern part of the school property became increasingly dotted with portables, some parents became concerned with the lack of playground space. “When the portable complex in the lower section was put up,” said Balanuik, “we did get interest from parents who wanted to have input on where those portables would go.” Farris is aware of the importance of Tweedsmuir as a community hub for the West End. “The parks and recreation department holds programs in our school, and there are art classes and sports on most nights,” said Farris. “We understand that this is a community hub, and we know it’s a huge responsibility that we take very seriously.”

Concerts at quay

“It doesn’t get any better than this.” A press release notes that was the verdict of Ray Bonneville after performing July 13 performance in the Hyack Festival’s second Concerts at the Quay. Commenting to the audience on the location of the stage, Bonneville noted: “I have a train running in front of me and the river running in behind. Pretty cool venue.” The Hyack Festival Association is reminding everyone that the third and final concert in the series is set for Saturday, Aug. 3. It will feature the Delta-blues duo of Hans Theessink and Terry Evans. A press release notes that the Dutch-born Theessink is a roots and blues institution in Europe, combining his rich baritone voice and unmistakable guitar work. Evans is from the heart of Delta blues country – Vicksburg, Mississippi – and is known for his work as a longtime backing vocalist for Ry Cooder. The two bring blues, gospel and soul to life with just their two guitars and two voices.

Art at the library

Artist Cliffe Milne is musing on the theme of consciousness in his ongoing art show at the New Westminster Public Library. Every Picture Tells a Story is on display on the second floor of the library until July 31. His work utilizes a variety of media and techniques, including acrylic, watercolour, ink, mixed media and coloured pencil, and explores ideas ranging from philosophy, symbolism and abstract thought to the spirituality of yoga. The show can be viewed at any time during library hours. The library is at 716 Sixth Ave. and is wheelchair-accessible.

Outdoor poetry

What says summer more than Poetry in the Park? The Royal City Literary Arts Society and the city’s poet laureate, Candice James, are presenting another summer of Poetry in the Park events on Wednesday nights at the Queen’s Park bandshell. Each week includes scheduled readings from featured poets, as well as an open mike session. The July 24 session features Darrel Shee, Lilija Valis, Val Parks and Helen Levasseur.

Band wraps up 25th anniversary season

Nothing says summer quite like outdoor music – and the Royal City Concert Band has been treating local audiences to plenty of that. The band is wrapping up a series of free summer performances in celebration of its 25th anniversary season. It’s fresh off performances at a New Westminster Salmonbellies lacrosse game on July 11, the Queen’s Park bandshell on July 14 and River Market on July 18. It’s winding up the season with a performance at the Kitsilano Showboat in Vancouver on Friday, July 26 at 7 p.m. The band (also known as the Royal City Alumni Band) is a 35-member ensemble of accomplished musicians, ranging in age from 18 to over 80. They’re from all walks of life and drawn together by their shared joy of making music. The band was recently awarded a “gold-plus” standing in the 2013 Kiwanis International Music Festival and was named the most promising community band. It’s the band’s first year under new music director Peter Wenzek, who became

the fifth director since the band was founded in 1988 – following in the footsteps of Earl Hobson, Vic Crewe, Tom Turner and Fred Turner. Wenzek is a well-known high school and college music teacher who has led concert bands, jazz bands, string orchestras and marching bands at Burnaby North Secondary School since 1994. “One of the things I really enjoy about working with community bands is that everyone is here for the music, and not for the grades,” he said in a press release. “It’s an honour to work with people who share a love of music, who have the desire to improve as musicians and who want to perform for the public.” For more on the Royal City Concert Band, check out their website at www.vcn. bc.ca/rcab. The Kitsilano Showboat is at 2300 Cornwall Ave., Vancouver, at Kitsilano Beach.

Newspaper offers glimpse into downtown past OUR PAST

ARCHIE & DALE MILLER

W

ritten accounts, usually in old newspapers, can be great sources of information about businesses such as stores and offices along a particular street in the early years of a community. These are frequently straightforward stories with names and various

details. For some holidays, especially Christmas, the descriptive pieces can offer wonderful images of an early row of storefronts. Recently we were reminded of such an item, but one with a difference. The bits and pieces of information are more colourful and somewhat lighter in context than we usually see. The article, passed along by the late Thomas Lascelles of the Oblate Order, is from The Month, a publication of the Catholic Church, from 1892, and features some local businesses of down-

town New Westminster. A selection of items from this article follow, with the first one showing clearly that this is a look around town with a difference. First we are taken to Front Street and the general store of Charles McDonough, who we are told, has “everything that you wish to buy.” But then we learn a wonderful extra detail: “There is only one thing which the genial proprietor won’t sell, his long flowing beard.” Next we hear of Stephen Manahan who sells “the most savory

meats.” We also learn of his recent marriage: “Although he but lately entered the connubial state, he lost neither his smile nor his strict attention to business – far from it.” James Wise also had a grocery store nearby, and we are told that he is a “good-natured proprietor.” E.J. Newton had a leather and saddler shop, and we are reminded of the importance of such an item. “A saddle is just the thing you want when you have a horse to go up the hills of the city.” The story then leads

us away from Front Street: “After climbing up the rather steep hill to Columbia Street we see before us an endless variety of stores and warehouses.” A dentist and bank are near Sixth and Columbia streets, and this elicits a very colourful comment: “Dr. Holmes draws some teeth out very elegantly, and fills others with gold, while below him the Bank of British Columbia draws your money from your pocket without putting in gold instead. But a safe bank it is, well-trusted, and there is nothing ‘wild’ about its management.”

Library offers plenty of movie viewing choices BY NAOMI EISENSTAT CONTRIBUTOR editorial@royalcityrecord.com

Yes, fun in the sun is grand, but lately we’ve been having so much sun. If you want to take a break, why not borrow a DVD from the library. The New Westminster Public Library has a popular and diverse DVD collection of TV shows and films. More than six thousand DVDs are free to borrow for a week, and up to 10 DVDs can be checked out on a single library card. The DVDs have been

borrowed 15,000 times in June alone. The library’s collection has something for everyone. Popular titles can be picked up right away from the Bestseller Express View collection. Some titles on the shelf right now are Brave, Bridesmaids and Zero Dark Thirty. If they’re not in on your next visit, never fear, there are copies of those movies in the regular DVD collection as well, which can be reserved. If you don’t want to travel to the Pacific Cinematheque for its

Studio Ghibli series this summer, borrow one of the films from the library, including My Neighbor Totoro, Whisper of the Heart or Ponyo. If the days are getting too long, tug the night closer with horror films like Rosemary’s Baby, Psycho, The Exorcist, Kwaidan, Carrie, Night of the Living Dead, and Paranormal Activity. The diversity and sophistication of the film collection does not disappoint. There are more than 300 DVDs in other languages, from Hiroshima, Mon Amour to the

works of Akira Kurasawa. The library collects everything from modern indie movies (Graceland, The Kid With a Bike, This is Not a Film) to Hollywood classics (Sunset Boulevard, Some Like It Hot, Night of the Hunter). Visit the new Queensborough branch for their extensive Bollywood films. The collection of television series is similarly extensive, from HBO series to sitcom classics. The next time you’re in the neighbourhood, step out of the sun and check out a DVD from the library.

Nearby were two pharmacists, Mr. Herring and Mr. Curtis, who “will dispense to you every medicine that any of the medical celebrities of the Royal City will prescribe for your health or for your sickness, as you like it. It is safe to take these gentlemen on their word. Their medicines always have effect. But that is the doctor’s business.” We will bring you more of these descriptions in a few weeks starting with an interesting point about Mr. Murchie, the undertaker. Truly a great account from November 1892.

TIPS ON BUYING WITHIN A

JOINT VENTURE

M

etro Vancouver represents the most expensive housing markets in Canada so it is no surprise that many people, especially young people, are considering pooling their funds with friends to split on the cost of a buying a home. This is often referred to as joint ventures and it can involve two, three or even more people. For example, say two friends who are all renting apartments at $1,200 per month realize that if they combine their savings and buy a house, the money they are spending on rent could cover the mortgage on a 2-bedroom bedroom condo. After holding the property for a while, they can then sell and share in the equity appreciation. It is a plan that is being used widely, according to Realtors, and it can be very successful. In one case, three first-year students, with the help of their parents, purchased a three-bedroom townhouse near Simon

Fraser University. Four years later, at graduation, they sold the home and made enough money to partially pay off their student loans. It was certainly more profitable than renting for the four years. Of course, there are some things to watch for. First of all, when arranging the mortgage the names of all the buyers should be on title. Note that the mortgage lender will often take the lowest credit score among the buyers as the base for the loan approval, so make sure all the buyers have good credit ratings. There should also be a strategy agreed to by all members of the joint venture. This should include, for example, what happens if someone wants out of the agreement earlier than others. Is a sublease allowed? What is the buy out provision? There should also be a clear agreement on the exit plan, for instance how long the property should be held before it is sold. There is also sharing in expenses, such as strata fees,

maintenance and utilities. Be especially realistic about your finances and abilities if you plan on buying a “fixerupper’ as an investment. Renovations can be demanding and expensive and lead to a split in the partnership if no agreement is in place before work starts. All of these issues this should all be spelt out up front, ideally with legal help, before a friendship evolves into a real estate business arrangement. Investing rather than renting can pay great dividends: in the past five years, for example, the benchmark value of a detached house in Metro Vancouver has increased 12.9 per cent, and in the city of Vancouver it is up nearly 30 per cent.

Pooling resources to buy a first home can be a smart move towards financial security.

Two suspects arrested in Burnaby car theft BY CAYLEY DOBIE REPORTER cdobie@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster police arrested two suspects on Tuesday for allegedly stealing a vehicle in Burnaby the day before. According to police, at around 11:10 a.m. on July 16, a New Westminster patrol officer spotted a stolen GMC Jimmy truck parked in the 400-block of Columbia Street. In the passenger seat of the vehicle was a woman. The patrol officer called for assistance to keep watch on the truck in case the driver returned. Officers from New Westminster’s street crime unit arrived on the scene in plainclothes, and a short while later Air 1, the regional police helicopter, was also dispatched, according to a press release. As officers were watching the vehicle, the driver returned and proceeded to drive away. Air 1 continued its surveillance of the stolen vehicle as it made its way through New West and into Burnaby. It eventually stopped, parking in the 7400-block of Southwynde Avenue, and that’s when officers

made their move. Police moved in and arrested both occupants of the truck, who were taken into custody without incident, according to the release. Surrey resident Jesse Michael Sokol, 29, has been charged with theft under $5,000; possession of stolen property under $5,000; and driving while prohibited. He will remain in custody until his court date on July 24 in New Westminster. “When dealing with stolen vehicles, police officers must constantly weigh the need to apprehend the suspects against the risk presented to the public. Auto theft suspects will often try to avoid apprehension by engaging in vehicle pursuits when they see uniform police officers or marked police vehicles,” said Staff Sgt. Paul Hyland in the release. “These pursuits can be extremely hazardous and place the public, the police and the suspects at increased risk for serious injury.”

Charges filed in city stabbing

The 23-year-old suspect in a stabbing on July 10 that

left one person in serious condition has been officially charged, police say. “The male suspect in (Wednesday) night’s stabbing made an appearance at NewWestminsterProvincial Court (Thursday, July 11) afternoon and he has now been formally charged,” said Staff Sgt. Paul Hyland in an email to The Record. Charges stem from an incident that happened around 8:50 p.m. on Wednesday, July 10. New Westminster police received a call from Surrey RCMP saying a stabbing victim had shown up at the local hospital and, following a short investigation, they determined the incident happened in an apartment in the 400-block of 12th Street in New Westminster. According to an earlier press release, officers went to the location and found the suspect, who was taken into custody without incident. The suspect is charged with aggravated assault, assault with a weapon and breach of probation. The New Westminster major crime unit is still investigating the alleged assault and couldn’t comment on the extent of the victim’s injuries.

Hyland said, however, the victim is now in serious but stable condition in hospital and is expected to make a full recovery. Jeffrey Rene Innes of New Westminster will be back in provincial court on July 24. Until then, he will remain in custody, Hyland added.

Police seeking suspect in thefts

New Westminster police are asking for the public’s help in locating a suspect wanted on two outstanding

warrants. According to Staff Sgt. Paul Hyland, the suspect is wanted on warrants for both breaking and entering and possession of stolen property. The suspect allegedly broke into an apartment in the 1100-block of Sixth Avenue in New Westminster on July 1. “We’re actively seeking this individual for this break-and-enter,” he added. Hyland said the other warrant stems from a 2012 incident, for which the suspect was charged but failed

Jr. ’Bellies show jump in opener

Near complete game frustrates Langley Thunder

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The New Westminster Salmonbellies got top marks in all facets of their game following a 12-6 victory over Langley in the semifinal round of the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League playoffs. The junior A Salmonbellie offence sparkled in the opening period en route to a 6-1 first-period advantage, including a delightful pair from 56goal scorer Josh Byrne. New West also weathered a huge kill on a threeon-five shortman for more than a minute that further frustrated the visitors. The Thunder came out hard in the second period, throwing every resource forward in an attempt to break the impasse. But the junior ’Bellies proved resilient despite Langley enjoying a 12-3 advantage in shots to start the period. Keeper Frank Scigliano was at his best, allowing just two goals in the first two periods. “We made a big impact at the start and they seemed to back up a little bit,” said 20-year-old defender Luke Gillespie. “We had time to strategize. We just gave them the shots we wanted to give them.” Johnny Pearson led Langley with four goals and Brett Dobray added the Thunders’ other two. But neither could compare with New Westminster’s output. Eli McLaughlin was sharp in the opening

Taking it to them: Luke Gillespie makes a strong move on goal against the Langley Thunder in New Westminster’s 12-6 semifinal playoff opening win at Queen’s Park Arena on Tuesday. Game 3 is back at home on July 23. game, giving New West a 6-1 lead with a strong move through the middle in the first period. The 60-goal scorer also tallied a pair of wicked power-play markers from the left crease to pace the juniors with five points. Byrne also put up a hat trick, his best came in the first period when he showed great wheels to get ahead of a defender to score a clever shorty. Quinn Smith also put up five points, including one of New West’s four

power-play goals. Anthony Malcom carried the right side, scoring twice and assisting on another pair. The win was New Westminster’s 13th in its last 14 games. The team’s only defeat in that span was an 8-7 loss at home to the Coquitlam Adanacs. The string has built up a dressing room of trust for the junior ’Bellies, said Gillespie. “Langley is a good team, but when we play

the way we’re supposed to, I think we’ll run the series,” Gillespie said. “As long as we practise and play the way we our coaches want us to, I don’t think a team can beat us. “Everyone is doing their job. We only had a few lapses.” A bit of nastiness flared up in the later stages of the final period, and Gillespie feels that could carry over into Game 2, if things don’t go Langley’s way early. “They’ll come out as hard as they can, but if we

Game 3 will be played back at Queen’s Park on Tuesday, July 23, beginning at 8 p.m. Victoria is the underdog in the other semifinal, when that series gets underway this weekend with a home-andhome stand, beginning in Coquitlam on Saturday at 3 p.m.

final. Another Royal City athlete Mihailo Stefanovic, who trains with the New West Spartans, failed to make it to the finals of the men’s 110m hurdles following a sixth-place finish in the semifinal heats. Stefanovic qualified for the semis with a personal-best time of 13.98 in the opening heats.

Not long enough

At the Canadian junior national track and field championships in Quebec, Burnaby South Secondary student Ahmad Nizamani placed ninth in the men’s long jump. Nizamani, who won the pro-

B.C. title for RC Track

The Royal City track club won the B.C. Athletics junior development provincial championships in Nanaimo last weekend. The provincial meet followed a winning weekend at the Trevor Craven Memorial track meet at Swanguard Stadium in Burnaby, where club athletes performed exceptionally well, winning a total of 41 medals including 15 gold, 12 silver and 14 bronze, along with an additional 45 top-eight finishes in preparation for the provincials.

B.C. Am results

Eighteen Royal City athletes, between the ages of nine and 13, contributed with many personalbest performances. The club walked away from the championships and a total of 50 awards, including 18 medals and 32 additional top-eight finishes. Grace Fetherstonhaugh won a silver medal in the 2,000 metres and was third at 1,200m. Jenevieve Patry-Smith was second in javelin and third in the shot put. Devin Strome also won a silver medal in the high jump. Ryan Jensen won two medals in hurdles, placing second at the 80m and third at

The incoming Simon Fraser University freshman edged out the Clan’s Michael Belle of Burnaby by four strokes. Burnaby’s Lucas Gatto and New Westminster’s Matt Steinbach both missed the cut. Former Sport B.C. junior boys’ athlete of the year Adam Svensson charged into a share of top spot with a five-under-par 65 in

Henderson, a 6-3 defensive lineman, had a hand in B.C.’s 27-0 first-half push, blocking a punt that was recoved on Winnipeg’s 16yard line. On the ensuing play, Taylor Pencer of North Delta caught a touchdown pass from tournament allstar North Langley quarterback Jacob Laberge for a 13-0 lead. South Saskatchewan, which beat B.C. 14-0 in the preliminary round, wound up in third place following a 10-7 win over Saskatchewan North. B.C. was 2-2 after roundrobin play, including a 2116 loss to Winnipeg West.

Cinderella girls win softball provincial C silver medal

The New Westminster Royals put together a Cinderella Sunday to place second overall at the recent Softball B.C. under-14 girls’ championships. Following an eighth-place finish in round-robin play, New West went on a march to the final following an 8-6 loss to the Ridge Meadows Tigers in the opening game of the double-knockout playoffs in Newton on July 7. The Royals then rattled off four straight wins, including an 8-5 turnaround win over the Tigers that guaranteed the Royal City girls a provincial medal. But New West went one better, knocking off the Nanaimo Nitros – a team that had lost just one earlier game by a single run – by a 7-2 score to advance to the provincial final. In the gold-medal game, Cawston Koyotes were relatively fresh having only played two games, while the Royals had played more than nine solid hours of ball. Pitcher Kayla Suhner gave a valiant effort against the strong-hitting Koyotes. Kira Rieger ended the third inning with a great catch out in left field, while two

singles each from Jordan Ring, Suhner, and Michelle Li were not enough as the Royals had to settle for the silver following a 9-2 decision. New West started penning its fairy tale finish with a 6-4 win over the 3-0-1 North Delta Hurricanes. Trailing 4-3, Ella Bohn singled home Kylie Baker in the fifth and later came home to score the game-winning run. The Royals then avenged an earlier loss to the Chilliwack Stealers, winning 5-3, including four runs by younger players Calista Hamilton and Li. Theodora Corbeil and Keira Jang both pitched 16 shuout innings through New Westminster’s gruelling 10-game tournament. Jordan Ring and Sarah Cox shared the catching duties behind the plate. In round-robin play, Shelby Greenwell showed some good offence with a double in a 3-1 loss to Chilliwack and a key triple in a must-win final matchup that put the Royals through to the championship round. tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Employees from Kensington Safeway celebrating results of the June campaign.

THANK YOU! YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE Safeway employees, customers and the Canada Safeway Foundation raised

$1,447,769 during the month of June for research in the fight against prostate cancer. Funds raised from the June, 2013 campaign will support scientists and clinicians at the Vancouver Prostate Centre. This team of some of the brightest research minds in Canada has been studying the molecular and cellular events involved in the process whereby cancers become resistant to hormone withdrawal therapy of prostate cancer patients. They have found that a protein called the “androgen receptor” is critical for this type of treatment resistance and that by eliminating this protein they can cause many tumours to die. Recently, they have had an exciting breakthrough discovery of an entirely new class of drugs that can effectively inhibit, and in some cases, eliminate this protein. With the support of Prostate Cancer Canada and Safeway, they can continue to focus exclusively on further developing this promising research. On behalf of the research community, thank you for helping in the fight against prostate cancer.

FERGUSON, Norman (Fergie) Will

On July 13th, 2013 Norman Ferguson (Fergie) Will passed away. Fergie is survived and lovingly remembered by Linda Taphorn, his life partner of twelve years, his daughter Elaine Weberg and Son Craig Will, stepson Aaron Amberson (Jenny) and stepdaughter Amber (Lorin) Beer. The combined families provided Fergie with seven grandchildren and three great grandchildren. The little ones gave him such joy in his later years. Fergie was predeceased by his wife Amelia in 1998. Fergie was a successful contractor and renovator and gained the respect of the Burnaby, New West community. His astute business sense led him and his wife to open the Starlite Room in Burnaby that was operated successfully as a family business for almost four decades. Family and friends are invited to attend a memorial service at Columbia-Bowell Chapel, 219 - 6th Street, New Westminster on Monday, July 22, 2013 at 11:00 am. Online book of condolences available at www.kearneyfs.com
