Royal City set to display its Pride BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER brichter@royalcityrecord.com

Ask any number of members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community what pride is about, and you’ll probably get just as many different answers – activism, standing out, fitting in, reflection or celebration. Now into its second year, the Royal City Pride Society is getting ready to kick off New West Pride 2011, where local pride seems to be about growth and community. “We’re just starting out, and we’re not focused so much on the parades and the

Saturday, Aug. 13 is the biggest day in the festival, featuring a pre-pride brunch at the Coming Home Café at 8 a.m. and the return of the popular Hills & Heels event in which participants meet at the Starbucks at Columbia and Sixth streets and hike up the hill in high heels for charity. Hall is hoping each participant will be able to raise $100, half of which will go to Royal City Pride Society with the rest going to the Lookout Emergency Aid Society. Hall said he’s encouraging participants to dress in “over-the-top and ludicrous” costumes meant to poke fun at the very

New vision for historic Trapp Block Salient Group comes back to city hall with a new plan for the historic block in downtown New West BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster city council is supportive of a revised plan for the Trapp Block. In 2008, the Salient Group received council’s approval for rezoning and heritage designations for the Trapp and Holbrook blocks, which are located at 660 to 700 Columbia St. At that time, the project included façade retention of both of the buildings and construction of a tower with 176 residential units and 8,500 square feet of commercial space. The development project has been idle since that time, but the developer recently sought council’s support for a revised project that included increases in height, density for the site, residential density, width of the residential tower, site coverage of the residential tower and a reduction in the number of housing units and commercial density. “It’s a terrific plan that is coming back,” said Mayor Wayne Wright. “I like the little changes they have made.” Lisa Spitale, the city’s director of development services, said the proposal is “very consistent” with what had been previously approved by city council. She said the changes are prompted by the removal of one piece of the property from the proposed development. Wright said the property was removed from the plans in consideration of a neighbouring property. Because of the exclusion of the southwest corner of the property, which is home to a two-storey building, the new proposal would see the building’s height increased from 179 feet to 183 feet and the number of housing units decreased from 190 to 180. Council gave third reading to the rezoning and heritage designation bylaws following a July 11 public hearing but hasn’t given final approval. Spitale is looking forward to seeing the project proceed and considers it a critical

Vision for the future: Developer Robert Fung, right, talks with architects Mark Ostry, far left, and Don Luxton about restoring the New Westminster’s Trapp Block building’s original windows facing Columbia Street in March 2008. The developer has returned to city hall with a revised plan for the future residential portion of the building. element to downtown revitalization. “That one has always signified we can do façade retentions, we can look at the redevelopment of operations on Columbia Street in a way that keeps the important parts of the building,” she said. A staff report stated that the Holbrook Block and the Trapp Block are two of the most significant buildings in downtown New Westminster, and the city wanted them retained because of their uniqueness and to be a catalyst for further development. Investigations by the Salient Group

indicated that the heritage buildings could not be saved, but their façades could be retained as part of a redevelopment of the site. Spitale said the Salient Group’s involvement with the project sends a positive signal out to the development community and reflects well on New Westminster. Robert Fung, president and founder of the Salient Group, is considered one of Vancouver’s most influential businessmen. “People look at what he is doing. There is always this notion: if Robert can do it, it

can be done. If Robert can’t do it, it can’t be done,” Spitale said. “It’s a positive signal.” When the housing market slumped, the Salient Group made space in the building available to an agency providing social housing for women and children at risk of homelessness. “As they find other places, they will be moving them out,” Wright said. “They will be finished by the end of August. They want to get doing some of the work in September.” www.twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

City wants residents’ input into 2012 budget BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

The City of New Westminster will be surveying residents about the 2012 budget starting in September. Gary Holowatiuk, the city’s director of finance and informa-

tion technology, suggested that the city do the survey online, rather than hiring Ipsos Reid to do the survey. He said the city did an online survey in 2010, which generated about 100 responses. “With Ipsos, we typically get 400,” he said about the survey.

The survey will focus on assessing public opinion on issues such as types of services, service standards, and acceptable tax and utility rate adjustments. The survey would be available on the City of New Westminster’s website in September or October. A staff report stated that New

Westminster is one of the fastest growing communities in Metro Vancouver, having grown about two per cent annually over the past 10 years and expecting to grow to a population of 88,000 by 2031. “In consideration of these pressures, over the last few years

the city has invested and continues to invest in new initiatives and amenities,” said the report. “This investment comes at a one-time capital cost and ongoing operation, maintenance and financial costs, which in turn drives property taxes used to pay these costs.”

stereotypes the gay community has had placed on it. “I guess it was in defiance because that’s really not who we are and ‘look how ridiculous this looks, this is not how people dress,’” he said. The Hills and Heels walk ends at the steps of New Westminster City Hall, where New Westminster council is set to read a proclamation officially recognizing Pride Day in New West. “They’re our biggest supporters in the city of New Westminster, and they’ve made our job a lot easier to put on the festival,” Hall said. “I’m not normally a happy person with politicians, but in this case, they’re helping enhance the community and enhance our society and show that we’re a part of society in New Westminster.” The celebration then spills over into Tipperary Park at 1 p.m., where organizers have arranged for a day’s worth of entertainment including Sugarbeach, the Faceplants, Carolyn Neapole, Lance Cardinal, Matthew Presidente and the Dunns. Like last year, Korki the Clown will be in the crowd making balloon ani-

mals. When asked who should come to the events, Hall answers quickly. “Everyone,” he said. “Anyone that’s gay or lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, transsexual, intersexed, queer, allies. If you’re human, we want you there. It’s a family-friendly event.” Following the party in the park, there is a $20 fundraiser barbecue at the Met Hotel Bar & Grill and the Pride Dance Party at G.I.N. (Gay Bar in New Westminster) at the Heritage Grill – a big hit from last year, Hall said. “There were 19-year-olds right up to a 95-year-old, and I just laughed because every single person had a great time and melded together,” he said. The pride events close Sunday with a 10:30 a.m. brunch at the Boathouse and wrap party for volunteers and vendors at the Coming Home Café at 4 p.m. Because sponsorship opportunities have been so good this year, almost all of the events are free, Hall said. See www.royalcitypridesociety.com for the full schedule of events, pledge forms, and sponsorship and volunteer opportunities.

New Westminster’s waterfront will be a hub of activity during the 22nd annual FraserFest. The Hyack Festival Association presents FraserFest, which features displays, entertainment, a mascot parade, a workboat parade, interactive activities and much more. The annual celebration is held on the New Westminster Quay boardwalk and celebrates the river and the city. The Hyack Festival Association notes that FraserFest is also celebrating the enduring connection between the Fraser River and the public market. The city’s first market, known as the Fraser River Market, was held not far up the river from where River Market is now located. “In 1986, Westminster (Quay) Public Market was built to coincide with the SkyTrain launch of Expo 86,” said a press release. “After 25 years and an extensive $5-million upgrade, River Market (former known as Westminster Public Market) is fully operational for this year’s FraserFest.” Melanie Vogel, Hyack’s executive director, said in a press release that FraserFest is unlike any other festival. “Our partners, such as the Fraser River Discovery Centre, the New Westminster Arts Council, Port Metro, the Vancouver Aquarium, Orca Boats and the local marine industry, make the Fraser River truly the highlight of this festival by their participation in our event,” she said. “With all those partners we are not only bringing

Are money woes going to hit B.C.? IN THE HOUSE KEITH BALDREY

F

inance Minister Kevin Falcon seems to have suddenly become very nervous. Long known for his brash, cocky demeanour, Falcon this week displayed a more muted, cautious attitude when he talked about the province’s finances during a presentation he gave on the public accounts of last year’s budget. The reason? Look no further than the ongoing events in places like Greece, Portugal and the United States. The spiralling debt crisis is the latest serious threat to the world economy, and Falcon knows B.C. could easily be sucked into any global financial meltdown. That’s why his finance ministry is now projecting that B.C.’s economy will only grow by two per cent this year. That’s half the growth we experienced last year. In fact, last year may be as good as it gets for our provincial economy for some time. No one is predicting that B.C. – or any other province, for that matter – will achieve four per cent annual growth for the next few years. This translates into fewer jobs

and less revenue for government. And that means provincial finances will be squeezed even further in the months and maybe even years ahead. The financial challenges for government that come with any economic slowdown are compounded by an area of spending that shows no signs of slowing down: the health-care sector. Health-care spending grew by more than four per cent (or $635 million) last year, and a similar increase will occur this year. But last year the government had more money to play with – revenues were up almost $2.5 billion more than expected because of that unexpected four per cent growth rate. This year, with slower economic growth, it’s unlikely the government will see a greater than anticipated increase in revenue. So health-care spending will continue to squeeze other areas of government spending. The annual increase in healthcare spending alone will soon be more than the annual budgets for all but eight ministries in government (remember, that’s just the increase from year to year). Falcon’s other worry is the fate of the HST. If it is rejected in the referendum, it will blow an estimated $3 billion out of government coffers. More than half – $1.6 billion – is transition money that would have to be repaid to Ottawa (the federal government is unlikely to forgive B.C. that money because it

Who exactly is paid too much?

Dear Editor:

Re: BCTF out of touch with real world, In the House, The Record, July 13. Thanks so much to the Royal City Record for placing Keith Baldrey’s criticism of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation’s contract demands on the same page as Ingrid Rice’s editorial cartoon commenting on David Hahn’s salary and pension. The juxtaposition was subtle but brilliant! In fact, I hope I’m not blowing anyone’s cover here by pointing it out, but I just had to compliment your technique. Here we have a journalist telling us that a union is being unrealistic by asking for parity with other teachers in the country. Meanwhile a man is being paid $315,000 dollars a year for a job he no longer does and in fact only performed for about eight years. And here’s the subtle part; several recent edi◗Finance Page 7

torials in other Lower Mainland newspapers have criticized BCTF demands and yet support David Hahn’s pay package. The main reason for that support? Because David Hahn deserves parity with other CEOs working in similar positions. Oh, the hypocrisy! I chuckled over that for most of the day. So thanks again, Record, for making me smile. Oh, I know that you can’t make your punch line work without Mr. Baldrey’s setup; he’s always a little bit funny. But you guys are hilarious! Mike Balser, New Westminster

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Working hard in schools ◗ continued from page 6

it’s time to reflect on the past year and prepare for September. Working in the public school system is a great job, and students are at the centre, no matter what job CUPE members perform. Our education assistants and CUPE student support staff who work on the front line with all students, including students who require specialized services, spend their days in and out of the classroom ensuring all students succeed. They will miss the students they supported this past year, and we know the students are missing them. As I write, our custodians are busy with the summer deep cleaning that includes every surface from ceilings, floors, lights, furniture, computer labs, lockers, windows, etc., in addition to servicing all of the summer programs taking place in our schools. Our grounds workers are also busy keeping up with the demands of the season as well as summer projects that will take shape. The same holds true for our trades workers – plumbers, electricians, carpenters, painters and labourers – who assist with the renovations of Lord Tweedsmuir and Kelvin, amongst the numerous summer projects and ongoing maintenance that takes place each summer. Clerical staff are closing financial accounts, preparing for auditors, ensuring student records are in order, ordering supplies and looking after every detail that

needs to be taken care of prior to the first day in September when your child walks in their school. At the end of June, we said goodbye to four retiring members whose combined years of service exceeds six decades. That further attests to appreciating having a great job in the K-to-12 system. For the CUPE staff that will be here to open up schools in September, it will once again be a challenging year. We will continue negotiating a collective agreement that expired June 30, 2010. Our schools and student services will feel the effects of chronic public education underfunding. Regardless of these challenges, we look forward to welcoming new and returning students once again on Sept. 6. CUPE 409 wishes everyone a safe and fun summer!

would set an expensive precedent). The remaining $1.4 billion represents the money expected to be lost over a couple of years after the HST disappears. That’s because the HST brings in significantly more revenue to government than the old provincial sales tax. In fact, the HST was around for just nine months of the last fiscal year (which ended last March 31) and resulted in contributing several hundred million dollars in unanticipated revenue for the government. By the way, this last point is why I think people are fooling themselves

Dear Editor:

Re: City facility is first of its kind in Canada, The Record, July 8. The story regarding the Honour House was very informative; however you made a mistake in listing the professions that are first responders. There actually is no such thing as an “ambulance driver.” The proper job description is paramedic. As an employee of the B.C. Ambulance Service who proudly serves the City of New Westminster, I would greatly appreciate if you would correct this statement. Lee Roberts, by email

Finance: Is two per cent growth projection too optimistic for B.C.? ◗ continued from page 6

Welcome to

if they think their personal finances will vastly improve if the HST disappears. Falcon says he can deal with that $3-billion hole, but he’s signalled one way to soften the blow: revisit the things that were exempt from the PST if we go back to the old tax system. So don’t bet that restaurant meals, to use just one example, will once again be exempt from the PST. Everything is back on the table when it comes to any exemptions, as the government will likely seek ways to boost revenue from the PST, and an easy way to do that is to simply make more things taxable. The potential headaches

flowing from getting rid of the HST are one thing, but what really has Falcon spooked are the external events happening around the world. As we saw in the 2008 recession, no government is immune from the external machinations of the world economy if they are large enough. Falcon admits that two per cent growth projection for this year may actually prove to be too lofty if things really tank. If that worst-case scenario does indeed occur, Falcon will go from being a nervous finance minister to a panicstricken one. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

Compensation will range from $3,000 to $150,000 for those who were residents on or after Aug. 1, 1974, who can establish they were subjected to sexual, physical or psychological abuse or injury. Gregg Schiller, coordinator of the We Survived Woodlands Group, urged all those eligible to apply. “It would be nice for these people to move on with their lives and have some comfort for the time they suffered,” Schiller said last week.

Cook takes new post as lacrosse commissioner BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

Longtime New Westminster resident Casey Cook was appointed on July 12 as the new Western Lacrosse Association commissioner. Cook, currently a New Westminster school trustee, is a Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame member after a long and distinguished career as an executive with the New Westminster Salmonbellies. Cook replaces Ernie Truant, who stepped down as commissioner for personal reasons. Cook said he’s taking the job as WLA commissioner at a vitally important time for the West. “The WLA had a situation where, because of a health situation, the commissioner had to leave,” said Cook. “I agreed to take over for the balance of the season because we are hosting the Mann Cup this year and we need a good job to be done.” Truant was commissioner for three seasons, after having served similar positions with the B.C.

Local Roadshow Expert Examines Some Gold Jewellery

After many very successful shows around the Lower Mainland, The Roadshow is is now herehere in New Westminster, Roadshow now in Langley, BC. So you had better search through your attics and garages, go through your lock boxes and jewellery, because you may be sitting on a small fortune and not even know it! Roadshow experts are here to examine all your antiques, collectibles, gold and silver.

jewellery she was never going to wear anyways. Expert Elijah Gold explains, “We have noticed a substantial increase in the amount of precious metals such as gold and silver coming to the Roadshow, which makes sense considering how high it’s currently trading at. He added, “The Roadshow is great because it puts money in people’s pockets, especially during such hard times. Lots of items that are just sitting around collecting dust in basements and jewellery boxes can be exchanged for money, on the spot!”

During a show near Toronto, a woman came in with a jewellery box that she had just inherited from her late aunt. “I don’t wear jewellery,” explained Barbara Engles, “so it was an easy decision to come down to the Roadshow to sell it”. She was very excited when she was able to walk away with a cheque for over $2,100 for

At another Roadshow event, a woman, named Mira Kovalchek, walked in with a tin full of hundreds of old coins that were given to her as a young child by her grandfather. She finally decided to come in to the Roadshow and see what he had given her. She was ecstatic to learn she had coins dating back to the late 1800’s, some of which were extremely rare.

Roadshow consultant Perry Bruce explains “We had uncovered an 1871 Queen Victoria 50 Cent piece, valued at over $2,000!! She had a nice assortment of coins that were not rare dates, but she was able to sell them for their silver content”. She explains, “I never would have thought that my old tin of coins was worth so much! I can finally afford

to renovate my kitchen”. Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”.

Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures. Trains, dolls, toys, old advertising signs, pocket watches, porcelain and bisque dolls, pretty much everything can be sold at the Roadshow. Any early edition Barbie’s are sought after by the Roadshow collectors, as well as a variety of Dinky Toys and Matchbox cars. Lionel Trains and a

variety of tin toys can also fetch a price, especially if they are in their original box or in mint condition. If a collector is looking for one of your collectibles, they often make offers to buy them.

A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box. We were able to locate a collector for that specific toy within minutes, and that gentleman went home with over $700 for his Toy Robot and a few other small toys. So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, we will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!

See you at the Roadshow!

Pidgorna was born in South Ukraine, outside of Kiev, but moved to Canada with her family in 1997. She completed her undergraduate studies at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick in 2007. She’s currently obtaining her master’s degree at the University of Calgary and is working on an opera as her thesis.

Filmmaker seeks sponsors for project BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

A New Westminster resident is seeking sponsors for her first foray into filmmaking since graduating from film school. Janelle Miguel, who graduated from the Vancouver Film School in January, is developing a short film, Lucy Redd. She’s reaching out to the New Westminster community to help make the film, which is a followup to Autumn, a short film she made in film school. “We are looking for any local business to sponsor the film, either by making a monetary contribution or by providing inkind services to help with food, props or product,” said a press release. “What you get is a community supporting the local arts, an opportunity to get your logo and company’s name in the film credits, on the movie’s website and at various fundraising events that we are holding for the film.” While the cast and crew are donating their time to the project, the funds would cover costs associated with equipment, film insurance and rental of a heritage house in New Westminster. Two sponsors have already committed to the project. “Nobody is being paid. It is a no-budget,” Miguel said. “The main things we are paying for is technical, the food.” A two-year resident of the Royal City, Miguel would like to see the film shot in New Westminster and has found a location that’s perfect. Lucy Redd will be filmed in August. “The house is beautiful,” she said of a

home she’s had reviewed by others involved in the film. “They said the place is perfect. Now it’s speaking to them and seeing what is a reasonable rate.” Miguel is on a mission to raise about $10,000 to help cover costs associated with making Lucy Redd. Local Leo winners Julia and Peter Benson will act in Lucy Redd, which was written by Leo-nominated writer Erin Buhr and will be shot by Leo-winning cinematographer Pieter Stathis. “We want to have it totally compete by October because we are aiming for all of the film noir festivals, Sundance and the Leos, hopefully,” she said. “They wouldn’t have come on board if they didn’t like the concept.” A press release states that the goal is to create a film that will not only entertain the audience but also satisfy movie enthusiasts with its cinematic style, creative direction and talented actors. “Lucy Redd, 26, is a wife in the 1950s. She’s obedient and loving, but finds her love challenged when her husband, Walter Redd, 30, becomes interested in another woman,” said a synopsis of the short film. “Can love save her marriage? She is determined that it will.” Miguel, a native of Toronto, moved west to pursue a career in the film industry. She’s done some work as a production assistant but is currently focusing all of her efforts of bringing her film to life. “I have to make it happen,” she said. For more information contact Janelle Miguel at janelle.miguel@gmail.com or at 778-789-6635.

$1,490,738

during the month of June for research in the fight against prostate cancer. Funds raised from the June, 2011 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.

Royal moments for New West resident AROUND TOWN

THERESA MCMANUS

A

Royal City resident embarked on a trip to the nation’s capital to meet royalty – and succeeded. New Westminster native Linda Cooper recently returned home after a Canada Day visit to Ottawa, where she hoped to see Prince William and wife, Kate Middleton. “I did so specifically for Canada Day and specifically to see the prince and Catherine,” she said. “I missed (Princess) Diana here.” Hearing of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s plan to be in Ottawa for Canada Day, Cooper booked an airline ticket. It never crossed her mind that she wouldn’t be successful in her goal of meeting the royal couple. Before heading to Ottawa for Canada Day, Cooper dropped by the mayor’s office at city hall to get a couple of City of New Westminster pins to include in a card she planned to give the couple. “She said, Do you really think you are going to meet them?” Linda recalled of her conversation with a staff member in the mayor’s office. “I said, ‘Don’t underestimate the power of me.’ I am pretty stubborn that way.” Cooper befriended some fellow Canadians and made her way to the

front row, where she managed to shake hands with the Duchess of Cambridge and give her a card (with the Royal City’s pins inside) and flowers. A surge of the crowd prevented her from shaking Prince William’s hand. Cooper included her return address in the card and is keeping her fingers crossed that she gets a response. “It was an amazing time,” she said. “I have got some great pictures. It was overwhelming at first, but so exciting. I cannot stop smiling.”

iar to the owner of a local business. Royal City resident Betty Hancock recently contacted The Record to express her gratitude to two strangers who helped her after she took a spill on Sixth Street. The women stayed with Hancock and her sister-in-law (who was visiting from England) for nearly an hour, until para-

medics arrived and took Hancock to the hospital where she was treated for a dislocated shoulder. Marjorie Lynn, owner of Able Nannies on Sixth Street, read the item and thought it sounded familiar. Michele Pellizzari, an executive assistant at the business, was one of the women who’d tended to Hancock in her time

of need – something that comes as no surprise to her boss. “Absolutely not,” she said. “She would help out anybody at anytime. She is a real sweetheart.” Pellizzari is no stranger to helping out people in need, having previously helped a man who had also taken a fall. While visiting from England, the

man decided to try skateboarding, only to fall and injure himself. Lynn said it’s nice to know that there are people around who would stop and help a stranger in need. Pellizzari had been out running an errand for the business when she came upon Hancock, who had fallen when walking to the shoe repair shop.

Mayor in the race

Mayor Wayne Wright will be seeking a fourth term in office in November’s municipal election, but it will likely be his last political outing. Wright, who was first elected as mayor in the 2002 municipal election, hopes to win a fourth consecutive term. To date, no one has officially declared his or her intention to go up against him in the Nov. 19 civic election. “I want to finish what I have started. I also know there is time for an end,” said Wright, hinting the 2011 election would be his last. “I think so. You never say never. You have to be sure you are right for the time.” Wright suspects there will be a lot of change coming to city council in the next few years, as several incumbent councillors are getting older and may be looking to retire.

First-timers win reinstated Giro BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The fourth Giro di Burnaby could not have been better scripted. Two first-year entrants, Cameron MacKinnon of Calgary and 19-year-old Saskatchewan rider Julia Garnet, won their debut races in the centrepiece of B.C. Superweek on the streets of North Burnaby on July 14. MacKinnon, riding for Team H&R Block, bested a top field of 80 riders in the men’s 55-kilometre criterium in a final sprint down Hastings that resulted in an exciting photo finish. MacKinnon, a former Pan American Games track champion, outpedalled Bailey McKnight of Team Red Truck Racing, by a wheel at the finish in a time of 72:51 minutes. “I didn’t know if I could sprint or not,” MacKinnon said after the race. MacKinnon, who won the gold medal in the 1km time trial in Sao Paulo, Brazil in 2006, used his track savvy to edge the field. “Definitely, I lived in White Rock and trained in Burnaby (velodrome) four times a week. That track is like my second home. Definitely Burnaby has been good to me,” said MacKinnon, who is contesting his first year back on the road in seven years. MacKinnon was part of a second six-man group of riders that successfully broke away from the pack by lap 15 and built up a 20second lead with 21 of the 30 laps completed. But with two laps to

But with the pack closing quickly on the leaders, MacKinnon found his opportunity and took it. “Today would be the highlight of the season,” MacKinnon said. “It’s been getting better. We’re looking forward to White Rock.”

After a top-10 finish in the road race at the Tour de Delta on July 11, MacKinnon finished fifth in the hill climb in White Rock last weekend. Local rider, Scott Laliberte, a former world masters track champion, raced in his fourth Giro di Burnaby, winning two race preems and finishing in 41st place. In the 20-lap women’s 37km criterium, Garnet and Local Ride Racing’s Jenny Lehmann led an usual breakaway after just

the fourth lap and held on to finish first and second, respectively. TogetherwithLehmann, Garnet, a junior national time trial champion, built up more than a minute lead over the women’s pack by the midway point and were in no danger of being caught. Garnet then left Lehmann behind with three laps to go to finish alone in first place in a time of 54:50. Red Truck teammate Karlee Gendron, bronze

medallist in Delta earlier in the week, came third again. “(Lehmann and I) worked very well together and my teammates did a good job keeping it together,” said Garnet after the race. “I haven’t done so well, so it was nice to have a change of luck and have a good race.” The Red Truck women’s team had dominted Superweek up the Giro, taking first overall after ◗Giro Page 17

Salmonbellies drop third game, but still No. 1 BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The New Westminster Salmonbellies suffered a major upset in the Western Lacrosse Association last week. The unheralded Burnaby Lakers knocked off the No. 1ranked team in the country, beating the senior A Salmonbellies 9-8 at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Friday. The Lakers’ win left Burnaby in fifth place in a tightly contested league that will likely go down to the final week to sort out final playoff positioning for all but the league-leading Salmonbellies. Just the day before, New West jumped out to a 7-1 lead over the Lakers at Queen’s Park Arena

before coasting to an 8-4 win. The ’Bellies got off to another strong start, leading 2-0 but quickly rallied in the middle period to tie the game on Peter McFetridge’s first of two counter-attack goals. Burnaby then took the lead off the ensuing faceoff on Calvin Craig’s hat trick marker and held on to at least a share of that lead for all but a couple of minutes in the third. Tied 5-5 heading into the final frame, New West stole back the lead on Martin Cummings’ second goal of the game from the left crease, this time on a great setup from Salmonbellies’ third star Jeff Zywicki. But Burnaby struck back quickly on Colton Clark’s first of two tallies in the period on a power

play. McFetridge, who was dealt to the Lakers in an preseason trade for Burnaby’s No. 1 draft pick Kevin Crowley, then put the Lakers back into the lead on a transition goal after a great reaction save from rookie keeper and second star Dan Lewis on Jordan McBride. “I know this was a big moment for the team and for me,” McFetridge said, referring to Burnaby’s first two games against the ‘Bellies. “I won’t lie, it was emotional to be back in Queen’s Park (on Thursday) and being on the opposite end of the floor. I wasn’t sure how I’d react. But going into the game and having confidence that we can beat them was huge.”

The proof came later in the third period after New West’s Sean Robinson knotted the contest at 7-7 with his second of the game midway through the period. But Trevor Moore countered for Burnaby with a sweeping low shot off a screen that fooled Matt Roik. Clark then tallied the gamewinner at 16:58. “We have to do a better job finishing games. It’s been a focus for us,” said Salmonbellies head coach Ken Thomas. “Teams don’t get blown out in this league. … (Burnaby) played pretty good, but we could have played better. The day earlier, New Westminster did play better, riding hat-trick outings from Cliff Smith ◗Bellies Page 17

Royal City-trained girls will be front and centre at the 2011 national girls’ lacrosse championships in New Westminster, beginning Saturday. B.C.’s bantam team will boast six girls from the host New Westminster association on the provincial squad, including goalie Bianca Ballarin and teammates Kristin Hackett, Zoe Loewen, Emily Manville, Allison Shanks and Naomi Noda. Melissa Caviglia, Mary McQueen, Tristan Ranford, Shaya Sandhu, Morgan Sherley, Lauren Stewart and Rianne Wilkinson will make up a core of the firstever midget girls’ team. The midget girls’ nationals, held in conjunction with the bantam tournament, will take place at the same time at Queen’s Park Arena from Saturday, July 23 to Thursday, July 28. B.C. lost in the final to Ontario at the two previous bantam championships. This year, four provincial representative teams, including Alberta, Ontario and Team Atlantic, will take part in both the bantam and midget championships. Iroquois Nation was a late withdrawl. Tournament director Jamie Stewart said lacrosse fans will see the game the way it is supposed to be played. “These girls can pass and catch just as well as the boys, and the goaltending is fantastic,” Stewart said, adding most of the girls have grown up with lacrosse sticks in their hands. “(The games) will be high-paced, especially the B.C./Ontario games. I suspect it will be run and gun.” The medal games for both divisions will be played on Thursday, beginning with the bronze medal bantam game at 11 a.m. The midget bronze matchup will follow at 12:30 p.m. The gold-medal finals are scheduled to begin with the bantams at 2:15 p.m. at Queen’s Park Arena. The midget final will be a 3:45 p.m. start. Closing ceremonies will follow the games at 5:30 p.m.

The junior A Salmonbellies host Delta at Queen’s Park Arena on Wednesday. The two teams play again at Ladner Arena on Saturday, before playing Game 3 at Queen’s Park on Tuesday. All games are 8 p.m. starts. The Adanacs/Shamrocks series kicks off Saturday in Victoria and in Coquitlam on Sunday. Game times 5 p.m.

Bellies: Next up Adanacs at Queen’s Park on Thurs. ◗ continued from page 16

and Corbyn Tao to the team’s 11th win this season. Tyler Richards posted the win at home, turning away 42 Burnaby shots for his eighth consecutive win in the New West net. But a lack of goal scoring has been the norm this season, with all but Victoria, averaging less than 10 goals

per outing, and that has to change, Thomas added. “There are always things to work on. Losses have by nature a way of helping athletes and coaches focus more, and the bottom line is, it’s a good wake-up call to shake us all up,” he said. This Thursday, New Westminster is home to the Coquitlam Adanacs. Game time is 7:45 p.m.

New West bantams take third, miss a second bronze BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Jason Lang/THE RECORD

Pack man: The men’s criterium also had a first-time winner in a race that saw two breakaways, but ended with an exciting sprint down Hastings Street to a photo finish.

Giro: The weather co-operated, too ◗ continued from page 16

the three stages in Delta and a first and third place in the inaugural race at UBC. “Our team has been doing really well in Superweek. It’s good to keep it going,” Garnet added. The weather also cooperated after a

downpour threatened the race earlier in the afternoon. But by racetime, the 1.85-kilometre course along a stretch of Hastings and Albert streets dried out, and the sprinkles stayed away until just minutes after the final presentations were made.

New Westminster minor lacrosse picked up a third-place medal at the B.C. bantam lacrosse championships in Victoria last weekend. New Westminster’s A1 team avenged a loss to the host Juan de Fuca club earlier in the provincial tournament to nab the bronze medal, following a come-from-behind 7-4 win on Sunday. Trailing the Victoria club 4-2 in the middle period, Sam Unger sparked the Salmonbellie comeback, drawing the visitors to within a single goal. Nathan Macedo, who was player of the game in New West’s 4-2 win over regular season champion Port Coquitlam and in a semifinal loss to eventual provincial champion Coquitlam, knotted the contest to start the third period. Noall Degife followed,

scoring the eventual gamewinning tally. Player of the game Nolan Duncan and Ryan Wilkinson, with a lastminute marker following a tremendous effort on a clock-killing rag, completed the comeback with single scores. New Westminster narrowly lost its preliminary round match with favoured Juan de Fuca 43. “Once the excitement got started on the bench, you could see the kids had more energy and it was only a matter of time,” said bantam coach Kevin Ballance. “It was a nice ending to a disappointing weekend for the kids.” The disappointment was the team’s inability to unseat Coquitlam, which finished ahead of thirdplace New Westminster during league play. The bantam ’Bellies had two opportunities to defeat their rivals, but failed both times, losing

6-3 in the round robin and again 4-1 in the semifinals. “We had the chance but didn’t really play that well, Ballance said. Owen Ballance was the game star in New Westminster’s opening 65 victory over Burnaby. The Royal City club then got by Cowichan Valley 8-5, with A1 team all-star Max Gerhardt getting the player of the game nod. Wilkinson was New West’s player of the game in the loss to Juan de Fuca. New Westminster’s B team just missed a bronze medal, finishing fourth following a 5-2 loss to Juan de Fuca 2. Bantam B all-star Lee Wiseman was named the bantam B division MVP. Owen Ballance and Emmett Donahoe were the A1 and B Fair Play award winners, respectively. The B’s were named the most sporting team.

Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes.
