Woodlands tower to be demolished BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The Centre Block tower at the former Woodlands site will be demolished – much to the delight of former residents. New Westminster city council has reversed its earlier decision to retain the Centre Block and have staff explore options for the retention and reuse of the tower building. Many former residents and their families had urged the city to demolish the building because it’s a reminder of the abuse that some suffered at the institution.

Coun. Bob Osterman said Woodlands had a large number of very good, capable employees, but the building is a visible reminder for those who have bad memories of their time there. Coun. Jonathan Cote originally supported retention of the tower but said he would support demolition because of the concerns and input from past Woodlands residents and current Victoria Hill residents. “I do appreciate the developer’s contribution will be dedicated to the city’s heritage fund,” he said. “We may have an opportunity to save or enhance another

heritage feature in the city.” On Monday, council supported demolition of the Centre Block tower. The Onni Group of Companies, which owns the site, will contribute $600,000 to a city heritage fund and will provide interpretive panels and landscaping on the former tower footprint site. Coun. Jaimie McEvoy, who supported the demolition, cited a letter from Alistair Kerr, a former director of the Heritage Branch in Victoria. “I believe that after two years of extensive public consultation and strong feelings expressed by the two advocacy groups for

the former patients, the right decision is to demolish the remainder of the tower,” he wrote in an email to the city’s heritage planner. “As for even keeping the footprint of the tower, it’s a moot point. If it can be used in positive, healing way, then by all means keep it. If not, don’t entertain keeping it simply because you think you should. That’s never a compelling reason. But I agree with the two advocacy groups. Some things are simply better if we let them go.” The B.C. Association for Community Living and the Community Living Society

Casino funding pays for big projects Queensborough parks, new downtown civic centre among developments being covered by casino deals

BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

One done, two underway and two to go. Several years ago, the City of New Westminster identified its priorities for “development assistance compensation” – funding negotiated when the destination casino was approved in the city. The city first negotiated agreements for the destination casino in 1999, when Royal City Star riverboat casino opened in New Westminster. “The province said to the city back in 2006 that they wanted some changes to the destination casino,” said Lisa Spitale, the city’s director of development services. “For that reason, we were allowed to open up the agreements.” The development assistance compensation agreements were signed by the city, the provincial government, the B.C. Lottery Corporation and the casino operator. They identified five priorities and provided funding for each of those projects. The first priority was $5 million for parkland improvements in Queensborough, followed by $35 million for a multi-use downtown civic facility. Priority 3 was $6.2 million for expansion of facility at Queensborough Community Centre, while Priority 4 was $10 million for a Queensborough/waterfront pedestrian bridge. Rounding out the top 5 priorities was $4 million for riverfront dock and facility improvements. “We finished that,” Spitale said of Priority 1. “That is done.” Priority 1 included parkland improvements in Queensborough including trail and greenways along South Dyke Road, the Sukh Sagar Park at Wood Street and Derwent Avenue, the Queensborough neighbourhood park at Derwent Way and Ewen Avenue and the Boro All Wheel Park next to the community centre. “One hundred per cent of those projects were funded through (development assistance compensation),” said Dean Gibson, the city’s director of parks, culture and recreation. “We got huge value. We got two parks, an all-wheel park and three trails with piers out into the river.” Gibson said staff were going like gangbusters to get the projects done by the Dec. 31, 2010 deadline. He said a grand opening was delayed until July 9, as summer is the best time to have these types of events. City staff, architects and various committees have also been working on plans for the multi-use civic centre, which must be completed by 2013. “We are on track,” Spitale said. “One of our milestones has always been excavating during this time period. The rest is a straightforward construction project.”

Cashing in: Funds negotiated through casino agreements are paying for new civic facilities such as the future civic centre on Columbia Street, seen here in an artist’s conceptual illustration. According to Spitale, the pedestrian The City of New Westminster recently held a groundbreaking for the 13,180- bridge would have to look at a number of square-foot expansion to Queensborough issues, such as where it lands on each end, Community Centre. Work is getting under- view corridors, height and its relationship way and aiming to be completed by the fall to the existing rail bridge. She noted that certain height clearances are required on of 2012. Spitale said little work has been done on navigable waterways. “We have to put all of that together and Priority 4 and 5 because city staff has been start working on that,” she said. “We will focusing their attention on other projects. “We have been focusing on DAC Priority start focusing on that once the civic centre 2, which is the lion’s share of the funding,” is underway.” Spitale estimates that work on she said about the civic centre.

ments would be tied in to some of the work that the city is doing with Westminster Pier Park and the waterfront esplanade. Spitale said the city has always supported completing the projects by the deadlines set in the DAC agreements “We have always taken the position we can’t get an extension,” she said. “We have always said there is value to keep working on these timelines and keeping the momentum going.” Spitale noted that $35 million now isn’t $35 million in 10 years, so it’s to the city’s benefit to get the projects done sooner rather than later. At various times since the agreements were negotiated, people have suggested that the funding should be used on other projects than those originally identified. Because the province wanted to change the original agreements, Spitale said the city was able to renegotiate funding priorities. But she said the province made it clear that it wouldn’t be supportive of opening up discussions about those priorities again. Spitale, who helped negotiate the 1999 and 2008 agreements, believes the funding provides a tremendous opportunity for a small city to undertake projects it may not normally have funds to build. “At the end of the day what has always been great about the DAC program is they are community programs,” she said. “They were put together as legacy projects that the province allowed us to do.”

Tower: Council OK’s demolition ◗ continued from page 1

have supported demolition of the building. “We are relieved,” said Faith Bodnar, executive director of the B.C. Association for Community Living. Bodnar said the association appreciates the ability to be part of the conversation regarding the Centre Block tower and welcomes an opportunity to be part of task force that will help provide direction about the content of interpretative panels to be placed on the site. “I think council deserves a lot of credit,” she told The Record Tuesday. “I appreciate the fact they listened, as difficult a decision as it was.” McEvoy believes the task force will play a very important role in considering how Woodlands school can be remembered in a meaningful way at the site. “There was a community there that was the size of a small town itself, thousands of people,” said McEvoy, whose aunt was a resident at Woodlands. “That community deserves to be remembered.” Coun. Lorrie Williams said she was “horrified” when council first considered tearing down something historical, but she would support the tower’s demolition because past Woodlands and present Victoria Hill residents aren’t interested in its retention. “I still have a feeling of unease about tearing it down. It is final,” she said. “It was not an easy decision on my part. I guess we have to let it go.” A staff report noted that Onni has raised concerns about the ownership of the Centre Block tower, the physical and visual impact of the tower on the new Victoria Hill development and the cost implications of retaining the tower.

Last structure standing: The Centre Block tower at Woodlands after a fire in the summer of 2008. rest of the Centre Block was destroyed by fire, which only left the tower standing.) Coun. Betty McIntosh felt the costs of retaining the Centre Block tower were cost prohibitive and she wasn’t sure who would cover costs associated with retaining and reusing the building. The staff report noted that the costs for structural and seismic upgrading have been estimated between $500,000 and $3 million, depending on the tower’s use. That excluded any costs related to ownership and ongoing maintenance. Williams said the city couldn’t find any useful use for the Centre Block and it would have been costly to maintain. “The expense alone took my breath away,” she said. “Who would pay it, and why would we pay it?”

New track makes a splash BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The City of New Westminster has opted for a two-toned running track at Mercer Stadium. Work on the new track got underway last summer, but its completion has been hampered by poor weather. “There are three layers of the rubber material. The final layer is the part that gives it its colour,” said Dean Gibson, the city’s director of parks, culture and recreation. “We are in the homestretch.” While the blue layer was applied a couple of weeks ago, installation of the gold

lanes is underway – as weather permits. The colours were chosen because they are the City of New Westminster’s colours. “It’s blue and gold. They are alternating lanes,” Gibson said. “It was a decision we discussed internally within our department.” Gibson said the notion of having twotoned tracks isn’t unheard of, nor is it commonplace. “We like to do things that are distinctive,” he said about New Westminster. Gibson said the project’s tender package that was issued sought prices for a ◗Track Page 10

With mission over, time to consider future

Ma’sum Ghar was a major role. THE RECORD Canada’s exit date from Canadian base subject to never-ending mortar attacks Afghanistan was determined and is now a compound for Afghan by Parliament three years ago, a decision National Army troops. that caused several European countries to reassess their own contribution to soAlmost all of its Canadian troops are gone, leaving only a handful to assist called “peacekeeping” roles.

OUR VIEW

As last week’s transfer was effected at Ma’sum Ghar, Maclean’s posted an interview with Prime Minister Stephen Harper in which he says the ability of the United States to protect Canada’s interests is diminishing and “we have to be prepared to contribute more.” There are, of course, many ways to provide a “contribution.” But not if it is with the lives of young Canadians like the 157 who died in a shapeless and confusing endeavour with no clear and sustainable military

objective. It’s been nearly six years since troops first arrived in 2005 for what was then thought to be a short-term mission. Since then, with ever-shifting goals and unexpected challenges, our involvement in Afghanistan extended far beyond all early predictions. Our soldiers in Afghanistan during that time were, and are, a credit to our nation. They have not questioned their role. That is our job. Collectively, this nation must determine whether U.S. foreign policy is Canadian foreign policy.

BCTF out of touch with real world IN THE HOUSE

H

KEITH BALDREY

ow many people reading this are entitled to two weeks off work – with pay – because a friend has died? That type of paid leave is precisely what the B.C. Teachers’ Federation is seeking for its members in the current round of contract talks, and it is the kind of request that demonstrates just how much the BCTF has become detached from public opinion. On an individual basis, many teachers are no doubt passionate and deeply committed to the task of teaching children. Collectively, however, their judgment becomes blurry and questionable. According to the teachers’ employer – the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association – the BCTF’s contract position will cost $2.9 billion in new money. That is a staggering amount of money, and it comes at a time when the government (which funds the BCPSEA) is a long ways from balancing its books. While a reasonable argument can be made that teachers deserve a raise (who doesn’t?), it’s hard to square their contract request with their employers’ fiscal position.

The BCTF has declined to state just what exactly it is looking for in terms of a percentage increase in salaries, but it has said its members deserve parity with the best paid teachers in the country. That translates to an increase of at least 20 per cent in wages and benefits, if not more. Asking for pay hikes that greatly exceed anything seen in the public or private sector is nothing new for the BCTF, of course. Just weeks after the events of 9/11, when the entire world was reeling in shock, the BCTF tabled a contract request for a 34 per cent wage increase. Not surprisingly, the union was held up for ridicule and contempt. In the next round of bargaining, the BCTF wanted a further 24 per cent. These demands came at a time when most unions were getting raises for their members that hovered in the two per cent a year range. In the current round of bargaining (although real “bargaining” never seems to occur in BCTF-BCPSEA negotiations), it is not just a salary increase that highlights the difference between the BCTF and every other union. What other union member gets two weeks’ paid leave for the death of a friend (plus two paid days for travel), a half year’s paid leave to care for someone else (not necessarily a family member), another week’s pay to care for a child, plus paid leave to do union work?

Don’t let bad politics block art

Dear Editor:

Re: Turning iconic photo into public art, The Record, July 8. Dear Coun. Williams: Since “nothing is etched in stone yet,” I feel compelled to weigh in on the topic of the “public art” proposal for the iconic Wait for Me, Daddy photograph. I do have some experience in the public art field, having been on a board of governor’s committee looking into such things for the University of Calgary campus, in its early days, and my family having donated works of art to both the University of Calgary and the Lord Strathcona’s Horse Officer’s Mess. First, Greg Magirescu’s astute recommendation that the city should allow artists from across Canada ◗Union Page 7 to submit ideas for the project should be heeded.

We pay him well for such advice, and only parochial minds would limit artistic input to their “local favourites.” Bad politics should not trump good art – especially when the subject is a recognizable “national icon.” Second, I believe that having the “second” most iconic war photograph turned into a lasting local war memorial is not only a great answer to getting base funding, but a fitting tribute both to the subject and to honour the very veterans we see in the photograph marching on their way to the front by train to defend our basic freedoms.

STEVE KASPER

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Statue plan needs thought

the jobs as promised and savings made by corporate HST write-offs, en masse, are not being passed on to consumers as predicted. We heard these same promises from the Conservative government in 1991, when the GST was introduced, and the corporate manufacturers’ sales tax was eliminated. The result was a 10-year nuclear winter, as this was how long it took for the average Canadian family income to rebound to pre-GST levels. If you vote to keep the HST, you agree to massive tax increases on the many goods and services that were PST exempt. A $1,000 purchase on a PST-exempt item would have amounted to a tax of $50 GST. The same purchase with HST today will cost you $120 in taxes, which is a whopping 120 per cent tax increase. A look at who is behind this behemoth spoliation should tell you who the primary benefactors of the HST are: A group of large corporations and business groups who formed the Smart Tax Alliance and are spending unprecedented amounts of money to confuse and convince you to not cast your vote to extinguish the HST. The B.C. Liberal government has run a parallel campaign and is spending millions of your tax dollars on very misleading ads with the same evasive spin. There is no opposition group in this province with pockets deep enough to counter this massive coalition of deception – but there is you, the taxpayer. If you vote “Yes” to repeal the HST, you send the message that you want a fair tax distribution system that favours all British Columbians.

Street would be fitting as well. It could be accomplished as a cenotaph in the middle of the road on an island, much like the war memorials in London, near “Old Westminster” – thus accomplishing the task of an annual march-past on Remembrance Day. If the final proposal is a three-dimensional statue, it could be rotated slightly to be accommodated on a mid-street island with the soldier closest to the old train station. In the alternative, there are two parks at Eighth and Royal that could also be used as sites. If the contest winner is a “stone carved or cast relief,” it could be integrated into the Eighth Street wall of the new civic centre, on the assumption that planning for that facility is not so “cast in stone,” so to speak, that this worthy addition couldn’t be accommodated. As a final note, why are the appointees to this committees not composed of citizens, with some expertise in the area, chosen from and populated by a general call for volunteers with such expertise? If this had been done, I would have gladly volunteered to serve and submitted my bonafides. Looking forward to your response. E.C. “Ted” Eddy, New Westminster

Union: Unrealistic expectations ◗ continued from page 6

Throw in a new bonus that would see veteran teachers get an entire year’s pay just for retiring, and you can see that BCTF negotiators inhabit a completely different world than their counterparts in either the public or private sector. What’s puzzling about all the information coming out from both the employer and the BCTF in regards to contract talks is that nothing has emerged that addresses the number 1 issue for teachers: class composition and class size. These are issues where the BCTF will likely draw on significant public support. I talked to a number of teachers at the last BCTF annual convention, and all had compelling stories of deteriorating learning con-

ditions in the classroom. Kids with special needs are in particular need of increased support. One teacher told me she had eight special needs kids in her class. They understandably took up most of her time – which means the rest of the kids in her class don’t get the attention they need. If the BCTF sticks to fighting for better classroom condition and stops demanding unrealistic improvements to benefits and wages, it will fare better with the public and at the negotiating table. ◆ I’m on record for saying that David Hahn has done a first-rate job in his time as the head of B.C. Ferries. He has overseen

the rebuilding of the aging fleet, a vast improvement in labour relations at the company, and better conditions at most terminals. Rising ferry fares have thrust B.C. Ferries into a negative light in recent years, but keeping the fares down has more to do with increasing the government subsidy than changing much of what B.C. Ferries does internally. However, the decision by the B.C. Ferry board to grant Hahn a pension worth more than $300,000 a year is ridiculous. It shows the B.C. Ferry board is out of touch with the public and casts Hahn in a particularly poor light. It’s time to revisit that pension decision. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

British Columbians will scrap the harmonized sales tax in the ongoing mailin referendum if New Westminster burger eaters have anything to do with it. After one week of unof-

ficial or “(b)unofficial” polling at Burger Heaven on 10th Street, restaurant patrons have, by Tuesday, cast 89 votes in favour of extinguishing the tax compared to 39 votes to keep it. Much like previous federal, provincial and municipals elections, the

restaurant is engaging its customers in polling by allowing them to cast votes with their orders. Unlike past polls, however, there is no specific burger to order to indicate a yes or no vote. Steve Domaas, Burger Heaven kitchen manager, ◗Burger Page 10

Urban Wood Waste Recyclers is reviewing options to upgrade its construction and wood waste recycling facility in the Braid industrial area. Company officials appeared before city council in May to get the city’s support for a federal grant application related to a proposed expansion of its operations. That presentation brought to light a number of issues regarding the site, including air quality, zoning and bylaw contraventions. “It’s a work in progress,” said Mayor Wayne Wright, adding that city staff will be keeping council up to date. A staff report presented to council Monday stated that Urban Wood Waste Recyclers will be reviewing options to develop an upgraded, fully enclosed facility on the site. The review is expected to take about six months. “There are a number of scenarios,” said Keith Coueffin, the city’s manager of licensing and integrated services. “We don’t really know what they are going to be proposing until we get that proposal.” A team of city staff visited the Spruce Street site on June 6 to do a detailed inspection. They identified a number of concerns related to buildings and plumbing regulations/storm water management, fire regulations, zoning regulations and dust control. “The site is still subject to an outstanding order from Metro Vancouver to prevent dust from leaving the site,” said a staff report. “Urban Wood Waste Recyclers have installed additional water sprinklers to help control the

Mail backlogged at postal depots BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER editorial@royalcityrecord.com

Two weeks after the end of the strike and lockout of Canada Post workers, mail is getting out but only at a trickle, postal workers say. According to New Westminster letter carrier Leanne Alstad, postal workers are seeing a growing backlog of mail that has been delivered to local depots, but Canada Post has been unwilling to pay for overtime to get the mail delivered. “They’re trying to sort and process all the mail, and it’s all being dumped in our facilities, but the letter carriers can’t deliver more than eight hours,” Alstad said. Asked how much of a backlog was built up at New Westminster’s depot, Alstad said, “It’s like Christmas.” “We have HST rebate cheques

that aren’t going out. We have HST referendum ballots that were guaranteed delivery by last Friday. They extended the deadline, and they blamed us for that. It’s Canada Post. It’s not (Canadian Union of Postal Workers),” she said. Alstad said she would like to see Canada Post either bring in more letter carriers to bring the backlog down or allow workers to do it themselves and pay overtime accordingly. “They’re not giving us the opportunity. A lot of people lost 10 days of wages,” she said. “People want the overtime to try and make up what they lost, and it’s not an option right now.” New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly spent Tuesday morning touring the New Westminster mail delivery facility. He said the situation highlights

why the New Democrats staged a filibuster in Parliament to delay the Conservatives from passing backto-work legislation forcing postal workers back on the job without further negotiations. “I think, obviously, this has been a longstanding problem and partly why the two sides couldn’t negotiate a settlement in terms of the benefits and working conditions,” he said. John Caines, spokesman for Canada Post, confirmed postal workers have been allowed to work overtime in sorting across Canada, but said starting this week, some areas with severe backlogs have been given the green light for delivery overtime. “This week, we are offering onroute overtime as well, as required, but this is at the discretion of the local management.”

Burger: Surprises in local ‘vote’ ◗ continued from page 8

said the preliminary results haven’t been what he expected, especially when it comes to the number of people ready to vote. “A lot of people just aren’t quite interested in this one right now. I honestly figured there would be more participation, but as we get closer and people start to get their mail-in ballots, more people will get

involved,” he said. The heavy skewing towards a yes vote also isn’t something Domaas predicted. “I’m just as surprised there’s more of a yes vote than a no vote. I figured that by now, it’s already been in for just over a year, everyone would be accustomed to it.” Domaas speculated that anger over the HST’s origi-

do you have the best

nal inception is pushing people towards voting yes. But Domaas knows better than to second-guess his customers when so many of the past (b)unofficial polls have turned out to be right. “For last election, it was bang-on. We had the Conservatives winning and we had the NDP come in second,” he said. The burger poll is set to run until Aug. 4.

solid and a two-toned track. While he didn’t have the figures readily available, Gibson said the two estimates were “very, very close” in price. The surface has to be applied when the track is dry. Even the threat of rain can halt work on the project for the day. Gibson estimated that the new track would have a 15- to 20-year lifespan. In addition to a new running track, the Mercer Stadium project also includes a new jump area for long jump, high jump and pole vault activities, as well as a new storage facility for local organiza-

tions having equipment that needs to be stored at the site. Over at Moody Park, the new surfacing is a blue colour scheme. Gibson said the blue-and-green colour scheme is also being done at the new tennis court in Queensborough. He said the use of blue on tennis courts isn’t uncommon. “As the various sport courts come due for routine resurfacing, we are introducing a coloured play area surface that is distinctive from the ‘out of bounds’ court areas,” he wrote in an email to The Record. “Colours like blue court surfaces make it easier to see the tennis ball.”

The 12th annual event featured hundreds of vintage cars, and even some vintage fire trucks to celebrate the 150th anniversary of New Westminster Fire and Rescue Services. While cars were the feature attraction, entertainment by local bands and local karaoke legend Cal Donnelly kept the crowd in a festive mood for the event, which ran from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Musicians performed on stages located in Hyack Square

and at the intersection of Sixth Street and Columbia Street. People looking for a respite from the hot weather could get a cold beverage at the Heritage Grill and the Drink Urban Lounge. And for kids, there were buskers, face painting and children’s activities. The popular poker run also took place, starting at city hall and finishing at the Starlight Casino. Participants visited local businesses to collect cards, with the goal of getting the best poker hand. Prizes were awarded to the best and worst hand. alau@royalcityrecord.com

Deadheading best while dallying in garden BRANCHING OUT ANNE MARRISON

A

daily walkabout in the garden is one of the most relaxing habits a person can get into – it’s also incredibly useful if one takes a pair of pruners along to do deadheading along the way. Many perennials will bloom again if the old flowers are cut off as soon as they begin withering. These include lupins, valerian, verbena bonariensis, cranesbills, campanulas and geraniums. Re-blooming is the response that almost all the daisy-type flowers make to deadheading. This includes zinnias, helenium, echinacea (Coneflowers) and Shasta daisies. Most should be cut back to the next lower bud. Or

if that isn’t visible, cut to day or two. just above the next lower Other plants that are leaf. grown more for foliage Once a stem’s main than flowers are often flower is gone, the energy deadheaded to liberit would have used ate more energy for the becomes availdevelopment able to dormant of healthy, buds lower on luxuriant the stem so they “Once a stem’s leaves.

Annuals need frequent deadheading, otherwise they stop blooming as soon as they begin forming seed. Sweet peas, for instance, are notorious for ceasing to bloom unless picked every

being sheared close to the ground so that a mound of vibrant, fresh leaves develops. This all-over haircut also works well with Catmint (nepeta), Ladies Mantle (alchemilla) and other plants that grow low and/or produce zillions of flowers that would be too fiddly to deadhead. Flowers that open over a long period within clusters invite difficult decisions. Lychnis coronaria and astrantia both have ripe seedpods in their flower clusters while later-opening flowers in the same cluster are still blooming. Both self-sow prodigiously. Lychnis pulls up easily, but astrantia has a taproot. Spires are similar.

Foxgloves produce almostripe seedpods at the base of the flower stalk while more blooms continue to open at the top. Efficient gardeners usually cut sooner rather than later. There are a lot of different benefits to deadheading. Preventing plants from forming seed can save you a lot of work next spring – and some beautiful, valuable species have tap-rooted seedlings as numerous as dandelions and just as diabolical to remove. Hellebores and bronzeleaf fennel are two where gardeners need to do selfprotective dead-heading. The hellebore seedheads especially can be quite beautiful – but when the green begins to fade,

it’s immediately time to decapitate them. Other plants, like astilbe and the Sea Hollies (Eryngium species) aren’t major self-seeders and really enhance the look of garden beds when they’re left standing through winter. Some of these are as pretty as flowers when rimmed with frost on winter mornings. Then there are the seedheads that provide food for birds in fall. Rudbeckia, sunflowers, zinnias, cosmos and all the thistle family produce seeds that birds love to feed on. Anne Marrison is happy to answer any gardening questions you may have.

No one wants an accident to happen. But chances are at some point in your life, you’ll wind up in a fender bender that requires repairs at an automotive collision centre. Or maybe, it’s simply that you want to paint over that unsightly rust you have noticed on your car. No matter what the reason, you can trust the professionals at Morita Auto Body Services Ltd. Since 1967, New Westminster automobile drivers have relied on the expertise and quality workmanship of Morita Auto Body Services Ltd. The auto body repair and paint shop specialists have been in business for more than four decades now, testament to quality work and service they provide each and every time.

Morita Auto Body will repair your car; paint the dents and other damaged portions of the car with the perfectly matching paint. They will also repair the vehicle frame, as well as any other part or system of your car that needs fixing. Opting for auto body repair instead of a replacement of the damaged portion of the car will not only help you save money, but it is also environmentally friendly. Owner James Davies worked for the original owner, Sandy Morita, for nine years before buying him out six years ago. Morita Auto Body is an ICBC accredited shop. Their job, says James, is to remove all the hassle associated with an accident so that you can have your car back quickly.

Its simplified claims process with your insurer, its quality commitment and guarantee all combine to ensure your peace of mind. You’ll find the impeccable standard of quality, which has made their name one that people recognize and trust, is second to none in New Westminster. “We are different from a chain in that we really get to know our customers and take the time to explain the work that they need,” says James. “No job is too big or too small.” Morita Auto Body Services Ltd. body shop is a well-established member of the community and has developed a reputation for quality workmanship and integrity. James also cares about the community, which has supported them for all these years. A few years ago, James donated his time to paint a car for a student who had suffered a workplace injury. Regardless of the make and model of car you drive, James invites you to visit him and experience the difference so many others have come to know and respect. The professional staff at Morita Auto Body looks forward to helping you with all of your auto bodywork. The shop is located at 213 East Columbia At.

Oakville comes west for Crosby reward

’Bellies breaking away from the pack

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The Oakville Hawks were finally rewarded with the gold medal in the Tier 1 division at the 26th annual Jack Crosby memorial novice all-star lacrosse tournament. The Ontario-based team overwhelmed the New WestminsterSalmonbellies 7-1 in the gold-medal final at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Sunday. Oakville game MVP Justin Sykes scored a pair of goals, as did fellow Hawk runner Ryan O’Hara, who was credited with the eventual gamewinning tally midway through the first period. Ben Doherty also potted a pair for the Hawks. New Westminster’s Noah Armitage, a runner on the Tier 1 MVP team, tied the score 1-1 early in the opening stanza with the novice ‘Bellies only goal of the game. New West’s game MVP goalie Keegan Melenychuk stopped a host of shots in the Salmonbellies’ net and was wholly responsible for keeping the score to single digits. Oakville knocked off eventual bronze medallist Coquitlam Gold 7-3 in the semifinals, avenging a 10-7 loss to the Tri-City association in last year’s novice final. “It’s just as rewarding (as a National Lacrosse Leaguetitle),”saidOakville coach Troy Cordingley, who coached the Toronto Rock to its sixth pro championship earlier this year. “You put time and effort into it. There’s a lot of hard work put in to come out here.” Oakville won an inter-

to be a tall order to beat (Coquitlam) twice in a week.” The Lakers had defeated the Coquitlam all-star team 7-5 earlier in the week. But the Lakers still gave a good account of themselves, rallying from a four-goal deficit to fall 7-5 in the bronze-medal match. Burnaby goalie Matteo Tack was named the team’s MVP player in the final game and was also voted to the Tier 1 MVP team.

The first-place New Westminster Salmonbellies are leaving the Western Lacrosse Association opposition behind. The ‘Bellies put six points between them and the second-place Victoria Shamrocks following a 107 victory at Bear Mountain Arena on Friday. Rookie sensation Kevin Crowley fired his second hat trick in as many games, while also garnering his second consecutive first star mention to lead the Salmonbellies against the ‘Rocks. Crowley also scored three times in New West’s 12-8 win over the Langley Thunder at Queen’s Park Arena on Thursday. The win at home gave New West the season series against the Thunder. “We’re progressing nicely, ... but we’re not there yet,” said Curtis Manning, who scored one of New Westminster’s four transition goals in the middle period at home. “We definitely put an emphasis on transition, ... It’s what separates us from most teams I think, our ability to go up and down (the floor).” New Westminster took Langley out of the game in the opening two periods with its quick breakout, building a 9-5 lead. In Victoria, the Salmonbellies again began quickly, scoring the first

New Westminster upset overall pool leader Burnaby 6-5 in double overtime in the other semi on Saturday, but appeared to be the worse for it the following day against the clever short pass-andcatch game of the Eastern Canadians. “We got progressively better from how we started the tournament and that’s what we wanted,” said New Westminster head coach Rich Peterson, who admitted his nine-

and 10-year-olds had little left after last Saturday’s semifinal. Melenychuk was again the difference in the win in double OT. Armitage proved the offensive hero, stealing a pass in the sudden-death period to bag the game-winner. New West lost its first two games to eventual bronze medallist Coquitlam Gold and Oakville before tying Ridge Meadows 2-2 in pool play. The novice ‘Bellies then doubled Coquitlam Silver 6-3 before getting past

Ridge Meadows again to advance to the semifinals. Burnaby and Oakville finished undefeated with similar 4-0 records through the first two days of preliminary play. But the Laker magic that had helped Burnaby rally to win gold at three previous novice tournaments this season was not enough to pull them through this time. “We ran out of gas,” said Burnaby co-coach Russ Heard. “Unfortunately we don’t have the numbers the other teams have. … We knew it was going

New West girls gold again at provincials BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster was the belle of the girls’ provincial lacrosse ball again. The biggest little lacrosse association in B.C. won four medals at this season’s provincial championships in Port Coquitlam, including gold in both the midget and junior girls’ divisions. The juniors blanked Nanaimo 5-0 in the gold-medal final behind game MVP Alex Lund-Murray’s shutout. The tournament MVP keeper was also named to the tournament all-star team. Led by injured team captain and game MVP Kirsti Shanks,

New Wet came back from a 2-0 deficit to defeat Coquitlam 6-2 in the semifinals. Lauren Kutasi sparked the rally with her first-ever lacrosse goal with 14 seconds left in the first period. Assistant captain Tamara Harris wrapped up her minor lacrosse career with seven goals in the tournament. Amber Haley and Leah Purdey also picked up game MVPs for the 5-0 New West club that allowed just nine goals in tournament play. The junior girls were also named the most sporting team in all divisions at the girls’ provincials.

“This was a phenomenal team effort with every girl on the team contributing to the season’s success,” said coach Warren Goss. Just two hours earlier, the New Westminster 2 midget team took the association’s first gold with a 7-3 victory over Port Coquitlam. New West midget 1 team claimed a bronze with a 13-0 win over Nanaimo. The bantam 2 team also finished in third place, edging out Port Moody 3-2. “It’s called having very good athletes on your team and good lacrosse teams in New Westminster,” said Jamie Stewart, who coached the midget team to gold and the bantams to bronze.

“It’s another good year.” Despite missing three starters, the New West midget girls avenged an earlier 10-5 loss to PoCo in the preliminary round with a nine-goal turnaround. Tournament MVP Rianne Wilkinson led the team, while Gaby Jones pitched in with a pair of goals. Lauren Stewart, Breanna Croxen, Nina Biagini and goalie Tfion Mulatu also stood out on a team of stars. “It speaks to the girls having a lot of courage and moxy. … Every single one of them played wonderful,” Stewart said. In the bantam game, Monica Disanjh scored the game-winner

in overtime. Bianca Ballarin was named game MVP. But arguably, the true tournament final was a 4-3 overtime loss to Burnaby in the semifinal. Emily McLaughlin, Leilani Carney and Nadine Stewart all had strong tournaments for the bantams. New Westminster’s midget 1 team steamrolled to the bronze. Jennifer Noort, Stephanie Browning and Mary McQueen had two goals apiece in the onesided win. Melissa Flintoff and goalie Bonita Chafe also had strong showings in the four-day tourney. ◗Girls Page 22

◗ JUNIOR A LACROSSE

’Bellies gearing up for second half of season BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The New Westminster Salmonbellies finished the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League season on an eight-game winning streak. Now the fun starts. The junior A Salmonbellies wrapped up their final week of play with back-to-back wins over lastplaced Port Coquitlam and the playoff bound Nanaimo Timbermen. New Westminster finished the regular season as the league runnerup, 10 points behind the Coquitlam Adanacs, which fashioned an unbeaten record, the first perfect season since 2006 when the Burnaby Lakers posted a 21-0-0 mark. With its second-place finish in the junior A loop, New Westminster received a bye through the first round of best-of-three playoffs. In league play, the ‘Bellies clobbered the PoCo Saints 12-2 in Port Coquitlam last Friday. They then finished off the Timbermen at Queen’s Park Arena 13-8 on Saturday. New Westminster was working on a shutout up until 16:36 of the third period in PoCo until Richard Lachlan got one by Spencer England, who came on for starter Frankie Scigliano in the final frame. Brandon Goodwin led the Salmonbellies with a team-high five points, including a goal. Daniel McQuade and Jeff Sproule both chipped in with four helpers. Tyler Digby potted his team-best 10th hat trick this season. At home, Digby and McQuade both had big nights, collecting eight and six points, respectively. Goodwin fired four goals, including his 33rd this season in the win.

New inductee The late Ken Mattheson of New Westminster was announced as an inductee into the 2011 Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame in the veteran player category on Monday. The decorated World War II veteran scored 279 goals and 412 total points in 209 Inter City league and playoff games from 1934 through 1941 and 1945.

Mark Negrin also garnered a hat trick for the winners. Brandon Mulligan posted the victory in goal with 33 saves. “We played well in the last month. That’s what you look for. We’re gearing up for the second half of the season,” said Salmonbellies head coach Dan Perreault. The first round of league playoffs began Tuesday in Victoria between the fourthplace Shamrocks and the Nanaimo Timbermen. An if necessary Game 3 would be played on Saturday. The other series schedule between third-place finisher Delta and Langley was not available at press time. New Westminster will play the highest seeded team coming out of the first round. “We just work on what we work on and how we’re going to play,” Perreault said, adding player discipline and special teams will be important factors in moving on in the playoffs. “We have to capitalize on our chances and on our short man. It’s about making right decisions with the ball.” Digby finished the regular season in fourth place in overall scoring with 49 goals and 94 total points. McQuade placed sixth with 85 points, including 60 assists. Goodwin, Leif Mydske and Negrin also finished among the top 15 scorers. Scigliano topped all junior A keepers this season with an impressive 84.65 save percentage.

Peewees take bronze at provincials BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

An untimely injury may have cost the New Westminster Salmonbellies a peewee A1 provincial title. The peewee ’Bellies settled for a bronze medal following an 11-6 win over Juan de Fuca in the bronzemedal final at Civic Arena in Vernon on Sunday. First team all-star Nicholas Hannay earned New West’s game star in the final game. First-year goalie Johnny Edin was back in the net after missing Game 3 with an injury picked up midway through a 7-6 overtime loss to eventual runner-up Ridge Meadows on Friday. Runner Connor Pattison stepped in for the injured Edin the following day and played well in his first-ever game in goal. New Westminster lost that game 7-2 to eventu-

Girls: Numbers growing ◗ continued from page 21

“They played hard,” said midget 1 coach Rich Browning. “The biggest thing is we fielded two teams and were still competitive” That fact continues to hold true for the girls year after year, said Stewart. “The girls are growing in numbers and that’s the best thing. We’re registering everybody, not just the good athletes, and we’re looking for more numbers,” said Stewart, the association president. “The girls are still having an absolute hoot playing the game. I’m very proud of all the kids in New West.”

al provincial champion Coquitlam. “We just couldn’t pull it out. Who knows what would have happened if (Edin) was in goal for the third game,” said Fairplay award New West coach Scott Hannay. The peewee ’Bellies also won the overall most sporting team award at the provincials. Erik Maas was named the team’s player of the game in an opening day 94 win over Juan de Fuca. Edin was player of the game in the overtime loss to Ridge Meadows. Will Malcom was New West’s top player against Coquitlam. In the fun Warrior Trix with Stix competiton on Thursday night, Johnny PurdieofNewWestminster placed second overall. A week earlier, the same New Westminster peewee A1 team won a silver medal at the Canada Day

tournament in Calgary. In the 11-to-12 divisional final, New West dropped a 5-3 decision to Kitchener-Waterloo in what is billed as the biggest minor lacrosse tournament in the world. In related news, Malcom, Maas and Hannay will not be putting away their lacrosse sticks just yet. The three New Westminster peewee play-

ers will be joining Team B.C. at the Commissioner’s national championships in Whitby, Ont., which runs from July 31 through Aug. 6. Two New Westminster teams, bantam A1 and B, will be taking part at the bantam provincials in Victoria, beginning today (Wednesday). The championship medal games will take place all day Sunday.

three goals of the contest from Jordan Hall, in just his second game with the ‘Bellies this season, Cliff Smith and Crowley. The visitors then outscored the Shamrocks 7-0 in the middle frame, including back-to-back goals from both Jordan McBride and Ilija Gajic. This week, New West and Burnaby will engage in a home-and-home series, beginning Thursday at Queen’s Park Arena. Burnaby hosts at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Friday. Both games are 7:45 p.m.

Crosby: Smiles are reward, says coach ◗ continued from page 21

Jayson Beauregard, Marcus Klarich, Milos Sukunda, Trevor O’Reilly and Cole Malmquist all scored in the the Lakers’ final game. Burnaby’s Tier 3 team placed fourth overall with a 2-2 record. A second New Westminster team finished in third place, but dropped the bronze-medal final 11-3 to Port Coquitlam in Tier 2. Kai George of New West was named to the MVP team. Juan de Fuca won the Tier 2 gold 12-8 over Saanich, while Peninsula took the gold at Tier 3 with a 14-9 win over

another Saanich squad. PoCo also took the Tier 3 bronze. Burnaby’s Blair Nellis was selected to the Tier 3 MVP team. But Cordingley, who has enjoyed his share of winning both on the floor and behind the bench in the NLL and Ontario’s Major Series, did not lose sight of what the Crosby tournament is all about. “To see the smiles on the (kid’s) faces. That’s the reward, and it’s gentlemen like Jack Crosby who have made it possible for these kids,” Cordingley said. “He also installed that in people like me.”
