Local cop attacked with knife BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER editorial@royalcityrecord.com

A New Westminster Police Service officer had to be treated for facial lacerations after a man slashed him with a knife on Saturday night. The officer was responding to a distress call in Queen’s Park when he approached the suspect sitting at a picnic table, according to Acting Sgt. Bruce Carrie. The man, armed with a knife, lunged at the officer suddenly and slashed him across the cheek. The resulting gash required several stitches to close. Despite being injured, the officer was able to disarm the suspect but was not able to apprehend him. The man ran off in the direction of McBride Boulevard and East Sixth Avenue. Police are now looking for witnesses or anyone with information that may help identify. the suspect, who is described as a black male, 25 to 30 years old, 6-4 and 250 lbs. Police say he has a muscular build and black hair, shaved on the sides with a “fade” on the right side of his head. The man was shirtless at the time of the attack but was wearing green and black camouflage cargo shorts, white socks and white Nike shoes. Carrie said the officer is back to work already, with a few stitches to show for the incident. “He’s a trooper. He’s back to work and doing well. It would be a very traumatic incident,” Carrie said Tuesday. “I had a brief conversation with him this morning and he seems to be doing good.” www.twitter.com/BrentRichter

Black won’t seek re-election In an exclusive interview with The Record yesterday, MLA Dawn Black announces plan to step aside at next election

BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER

editorial@royalcityrecord.com

There was no health scare or tap on the shoulder from a party executive that prompted Dawn Black to decide that after almost 40 years in politics, it was time to let go. “It’s time,” Black told The Record. “It’s time for me to step aside, and that’s why I’m announcing I won’t be seeking re-election in the next provincial election.” In an exclusive interview with The Record, Black said she came to the decision in the last couple of weeks and felt it was important to let the local constituency office know of her intentions. “I keep on hearing how the Liberals want to call an election, maybe even as early as next month (September), and that’s why I wantFor more video coverage ed to let everybody of this story, go to know what my www.royalcityrecord.com plans are,” said Black. “I will serve out my term as MLA for New Westminster. That may mean I’m done by next month, or it means I’ll serve out my full term to 2013.” Black started campaigning for the NDP under Dave Barrett in 1973, and she steadily moved up the ranks, most notably working as executive assistant to New WestminsterBurnaby MP Pauline Jewett and for John Cashore, provincial MLA for MaillardvilleCoquitlam. Black first served as a federal MP for New Westminster-Burnaby from 1988 to 1993 before consecutive losses to Paul Forseth sent her into charitable and humanitarian work. She then put her time and energy into local charities, including serving as a board member for Habitat for Humanity, co-chair of the Ismaili Walk for Charity in 2002 and board member of the Justice Institute of B.C. Black also worked as a development trainer in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bahrain, Cambodia and Vietnam, helping to restore democracy to those countries. She returned to the federal stage in 2006, defeating Forseth to win New Westminster-Coquitlam. She retained the seat in 2008, but resigned in

Exploring Vancouver’s ‘Ice Age’

Local historian delves into New Westminster’s role in early ice industry BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

People think nothing of enjoying a cool ice cream cone or an ice-cold beverage, but ice wasn’t always so easy to come by in New Westminster. Burnaby resident and history buff Len Amiel has written a book about the history of the ice industry in the region: When the Ice Age Came to Vancouver: 1892 to 1990. His grandfather was one of the early pioneers connected to the ice, ice cream and fuel companies in the early days of Vancouver. “My grandfather was in the ice business. I started thinking, let’s take a look at this. I spent about 12 years writing about it,” he said. “There were things I never dreamed of. When you starting working on this, you never know what the devil you are going to find.” Amiel did his research at various places, including the New Westminster Public Library. He worked for B.C. Tel for 35 years, before his retirement 26 years ago. “I was a historian in the Pioneers for years,” he noted. “I had access to the telephone library. I went through every phone book from 1895 to about 1990. I looked at each one and wrote down all the ice companies. It took me a while.” Those records helped him compile a record of all the ice and ice creaming making companies and cold storage companies that made their own ice in the area. “The first one came about 1892 by three gentlemen. It was the Texas Lake Ice Company,” he said. “There was an office in New Westminster. They built one on Front Street and one on Pender Street in Vancouver. In the early days, Amiel said ice used locally came from Texas Lake. Later, it was made locally. “In the beginning, it was cut at a lake near Hope and stored in sawdust,” he said. “They built a warehouse on Pender Street and one in New Westminster. The first plant that made the ice was in New Westminster on Front Street.” The Texas Lake Ice Company had a warehouse in New Westminster at 261 to 269 Front St. “An ice house was built at Texas Lake (near Hope, B.C.) to supply ice to Texas Lake Ice and Cold Storage Company,” stated the Memory B.C. website. “The company’s three horse-drawn rigs were the first suppliers of ice in Vancouver. By 1896 the company was taken over by Cleeve Canning and Cold Storage Company of Vancouver and New Westminster.” According to Amiel, more than 55 ice companies operated through Vancouver’s early history. In his book, he writes that a number of companies started in New

Ice: New Westminster played a big role in early industry in region ◗ continued from page 3

Westminster, including the Columbia Packing and C.S. Co. (1895 to 1903), New Westminster Ice Co. (1914 to date unknown), Royal Ice Co. (1914 to 1916) and Westminster Ice Co. (1936 to date unknown.) “My grandfather Alf Amiel started working for one of the early ice companies – Almond,” he said of the Vancouver-based company. “That was about 1911. Then he went out on his own. He delivered ice and fuel.” Amiel-Almond Ice Co. supplied, wood, ice and coal from its headquarters in Vancouver. When his grandfather’s company went bankrupt, Amiel said it went on to become the Morrow Ice and Fuel Co. “It became one of the largest ice companies around,” he said of a company whose motto was “Call to Morrow for your ice to-day.” Amiel, 82, used old telephone directories dating back to 1895 to help with his research. “As the years progressed and Vancouver’s population grew more and more, ice and ice cream companies came into being, many lasted only a few years and others prospered,” he said. The New Westminster Environmental Almanac, which was written by the Douglas College Institute of Urban Ecology, noted that ice making and cold storage were a part of the Royal City’s industrial history. “As with many things, changes take place over time, the use of coal, sawdust and wood was greatly reduced with the coming of natural gas which was so much

cleaner and more convenient,” Amiel wrote in his book. “And of course the ice producing part of the companies were slowly fading away when the refrigerator started to be mass produced after World War 2.” New Westminster historian Archie Miller said ice was brought down to the Lower Mainland by rail companies. “They used to go up there in the winter, gather the ice, bring it down here,” he said. “They would store it there as well.” Miller said the companies would dig giant holes in which they stored the ice. Insulated by products such as straw and hay, the ice would remain frozen for a considerable time and last through much of the hot season. The Texas Lake Ice Company was a prominent building on New Westminster’s waterfront for many years. Miller said ice companies would have been drawn to areas such as New Westminster, Ladner and Steveston because of their proximity to the fisheries. “They had to find a way to hold fish products,” he noted. “You will get them for that. Otherwise they have to get the fish out fresh or smoke it or salt it.” Although refrigerators were invented in the late 1800s, Miller said they were slower to arrive in this part of North America. Growing up in New Westminster, Miller recalled ice being delivered into the late 1940s and early 1950s. “As a kid, this guy would chip. There would be little shards of ice,” he said. “You’d try to get a hold of them.” Longtime Royal City resident Jim

Larry Wright/THE RECORD

Looking back: Len Amiel with some of the tools of the early ice trade. The Burnaby historian has written a book about the history of Vancouver’s ice industry. Johnston also recalls ice deliveries. He moved to New Westminster in the early 1950s. “Your iced was delivered by horse,” he said about Arctic Ice. “They had a wagon.” Miller also recalls reading historical

accounts that told of companies coming to town and selling shaved ice topped with a cordial on top, creating something akin to today’s Slurpee. He said the visits from these sellers of shaved ice were such a community highlight that they made newspapers of the time. Eventually, people had iceboxes in which they could keep items such as milk cool. “You put the block of ice on the top and it dripped through,” Miller said. “It had a little drain. It would drain through. You put stuff in the bottom.” In addition to writing When the Ice Age Came to Vancouver, Amiel also penned another self-published book: This Crazy English Language. Amiel, 82, believes that reading and writing help maintain his mental health. “I sort of worked on both of them at the same time,” he said. “That one explains some of the colloquialisms. There are over 5,500 and I am working on a second book now. You would not believe what we say.” Expressions like itsy-bitsy, cockamamie and diddlysquat can make life challenging for people learning English, Amiel noted. “I have sold 400,” said Amiel, who recently had another 150 copies of This Crazy English Language printed. “This is my hobby.” Amiel is interested in hearing from anyone who may have items relating to the region’s ice industry history, such as tongs and photographs.

City looking ahead to post-election council BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

If you’re planning on running for city council – and getting elected – you should mark Dec. 5, 2011 on your calendar. New Westminster city council

has amended its 2011 meeting schedule to set Dec. 5 as the inaugural meeting of the new city council. That’s the day that members of city council will be sworn in for their three-year term of office. The civic election, held every three years, will take place on Saturday, Nov. 19.

Upgrading systems

New Westminster is using new tools to help make municipal planning and development processes more friendly to seniors. In 2010, the City of New Westminster applied for funding from the Union of B.C.

Municipalities seniors housing and support initiative/age friendly community planning and projects grants, and received $20,000 to develop a seniors’ engagement toolkit. This will help city staff to better engage seniors in municipal planning. “The toolkit, while targeted at

seniors, will also benefit all segments of the community,” said a report. “It will create more inclusive and responsive engagement processes, enabling everyone, whether a newly arrived immigrant, a person with a disability or a senior, to participate and make a meaningful contribution.”

Record on Tuesday. “Her strength of character, her values, her long history in the party, that was what she brought to the table and what brought our party back together.” James said that convincing Black to come to Victoria took a lot of personal calls in 2009. “I really didn’t think she would come,” said James. “She was serving as defence critic in Ottawa at the time and she was doing great things in Ottawa. When we knew Chuck wasn’t going to run, her name was the first one that we thought of.” And in late 2010, when James’ leadership was in peril, Black was one of the people James leaned on. “When I made the deci-

sion to resign, I didn’t tell many people, and one of the few people I called was Dawn,” said James. “She was a great friend to me during that whole time.” James said she’s happy that Black is leaving on her own terms. “She has done so many extraordinary things and those will be impossible shoes to fill,” said James. “There’s only one Dawn Black.” Echoing those sentiments was former federal NDP leader Ed Broadbent, who was happy for Black personally. “From the outset, it was an absolute delight to work with her,” said Broadbent. “She was a very positive, well-informed human being who was dedicated to the well-being of all her

constituents. ... More than private member’s bill that that, she had a great sense established Dec. 6 as an of fun, an infectious laugh annual National Day of and she was exactly what Remembrance and Action on Violence we needed in Against Women. the party. “I am proud Broadbent said Black “From the outset, of that because it was only the secprovided a strong female it was an abso- ond time a private member’s voice, not just lute delight to bill had gone for the party, through,” said but for the work with her.

In fact, the tipping point for Black was a family event she had to miss. “Because of a prior political commitment, I had to miss my granddaughter’s birthday party,” said Black. “I don’t want to miss any more of these family events.” Black said she has no regrets in her almost four decades of political campaigning and representation and she has only good memories of her political odyssey. “You’re not going to see the end of me,” she said. “I’ll still be at community events, I’ll still be around. “But now it’s time for me to step aside and let someone else advocate

for the people of New Westminster,” she said. Black has plans to travel – “I’ve never been to China or Australia and New Zealand,” she said – and she has a group of friends she would like to visit in Newfoundland. The local NDP constituency office is now starting the process of looking for Black’s successor.

those poor middle children. But, we digress. The point is, though there seems to be a never-ending stream of “special days” and we may begin to tire of hearing of them, some of them are exceedingly valuable to people around the world. One such event is International Youth Day, happening August 12 this year and which officially closes the International Youth Year which began in August 2010. This year’s events are based on the theme “dialogue and mutual understand-

ing.” On a global level, that can take on a variety of meanings as it translates to different cultures and religions, and even different generations. To us, on a local level, it all boils down to a much simpler concept: talking and listening. You don’t even need to attend a parade or sign up for activities. Just talk. And listen. Parents, talk to your kids. Kids, talk to your friends – or, more importantly, those you don’t yet consider friends. Open the door for dialogue and mutual understanding will follow.

Layton’s departure a game-changer IN THE HOUSE KEITH BALDREY

T

he sudden and sad departure of Jack Layton from the political stage is mostly bad news for the federal NDP, but it also comes with a cost to the B.C. NDP. While a full, speedy recovery by Layton is obviously the best outcome in this situation – one that dwarfs all other considerations – the political ramifications of his leaving have to be examined. If Layton does not return to his job as NDP leader (and it’s hard to see him doing that any time soon after seeing his frail and gaunt appearance at the news conference where he announced he was fighting another form of cancer), the party then loses its Number 1 asset. It was Layton’s own high level of personal popularity that vaulted the party to a record number of seats, a breakthrough in Quebec and the achievement of official Opposition status. But now the NDP has a near-anonymous interim leader and a caucus made up of a lot of political rookies. Perhaps more importantly, the balance of power within the caucus has

swung towards Quebec and away from the party’s historical roots in Western Canada and Ontario. This caucus would have been a challenging one to manage for even a seasoned pro such as Layton. It will be that much harder for his successor (temporary or permanent) to carry on in the months ahead. Will there be growing tensions between the Quebec wing and the rest of the caucus? Will any of the many rookie MPs make embarrassing mistakes? Layton’s sudden departure leaves a leadership void, and it’s critical for the party to line up strongly behind interim leader Nycole Turmel. The best thing the federal NDP has going for it is time. The next election is more than three years away, which is plenty of time for the party to regroup and plot a strategy that will allow it to build on its recent success. It won’t be easy – in fact it may well be impossible – and there may indeed be pressure building in the days ahead to begin merger talks with the depleted Liberal Party. If any signs of panic surface within the party, Turmel’s hold on the job could weaken and messy internal divisions could emerge. Layton’s departure is a historical game-changer, and it will reverberate through the political scene for some time. Oddly, Layton’s leaving could have a more immediate impact

Evidence doesn’t add up for HST

Dear Editor:

Suddenly, the right-wing Fraser Institute pushes out an HST study that aligns with its agenda of everdecreasing taxes. Is the Fraser Institute’s Canadian Tax Simulator some kind of magic box from which we might expect valid estimates? I question several of its assumptions and conclusions: 1) The Fraser report assumes the HST is at 10 per cent in 2011 – not in 2014, the actual date for the promised reduction. 2) The report does not consider one-person households. These households consist mainly of the elderly, the young and the poor – the demographic that is hit hardest by increasing regressive consumer taxes. 3) The report states that the “cost of business ◗Layton Page 7 taxation is ultimately passed on to ordinary B.C. families in the form of higher prices.” Businesses

rarely pass on tax increases or decreases dollar-fordollar. Competition and other market forces are more important factors affecting business pricing. 4) The report estimates that “families at all income levels will pay more sales tax under the PST/GST.” Recently the Ministry of Finance released statistics showing that the HST is bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars more than the revenues lost from the business tax reductions. The report’s conclusion that all income groups will experience an overall tax increase, and that the lowest income groups will be hit the hardest if we return to the GST/PST, is absurd. It flies in the face of the evidence, and the common sense inference that a seven per cent tax increase (or even a five per cent tax increase) on a wide range of services and products will produce higher government revenues. Look at the evidence, not the output from the magic box. Mike Divine, New Westminster

Why, just two weeks ago, I parked to pick up my friend to take her to her second chemo session, when I got a ticket. It seems that even though I thought: ◗ I was being helpful to park my rather low-riding car facing against the traffic so she could get in safely without having to limbo off the curb side; ◗ and even though I thought it might be helpful to go into the house to help her out with her bags; ◗ and even though it might have been evident to the patrol officer that there isn’t any traffic on her quiet little street; ◗ and even though it was quite apparent that this “chemo-bald” woman and her friend might not be needing added stress … The officer fulfilled his mandate. Said he had to. He also had to take photos of the offending vehicle, so I think he took some wonderful photos from a number of angles with the two of us very sad women alongside. I don’t think we smiled in those. I did think, “Hell’s bells, don’t these guys have any discretion?” So I called their boss to find out. It seems that once they start writing the ticket, they can’t stop. They also have to take the photos to defend themselves and their right to write,

and even though you can tell them all the helpful reasons you did with your car what you did, they just don’t know who might be lying. Lastly, after a very animated discussion (on my part at least), the boss did say that yes, they can, in certain situations, exercise discretion. Wow, I wonder what circumstances it takes for that to happen? Judy Dixon, by email

Letter publication shameful

Dear Editor:

I’m extremely shocked and upset to see you published the letter “Clothes Send a Message” (Letters to the Editor, The Record, July 29.) The notion that the sexual assualt of women is in any way their responsibility because of the way they dress is sexist and offensive. Women do not ask to be sexually assualted in how they dress, nor do they bear any responsibility for their rape or assualt because they “left nothing to the imagination” of their rapist. As a member of the B.C. Press Council, you committed to a code of practice which includes not publishing news stories or opinion columns which “encourage discrimination on the grounds of … gender.” Your decision to publish this does nothing but enable discrimination and violence against women and promotes sexism in our community. Truly disappointing and shameful. Jonathan Graves, by e-mail

Layton: Loss is a blow to the NDP ◗ continued from page 6

on the provincial NDP, because an election will likely be called in this province within a year or so, and Layton would undoubtedly have been out here campaigning alongside NDP Adrian Dix. Layton would have lent a credible, popular presence to an NDP campaign. His own personal popularity may have translated into just enough votes for the party to win some of the closer races. Sadly, it looks like that’s not going to happen. I’ve been asked by several people whether, as a journalist, I think Layton should have been more forthcoming about his health issues during the election campaign. That’s not an easy question to answer. A person’s health prob-

lems are, of course, usually a matter of intense personal privacy. So should a politician or, more to the point, a political leader be treated differently on this question? Some have compared Layton’s situation to the one confronting anyone running to be president of the United States. Candidates there must subject themselves to intense health checkups. But this comparison is, of course, ludicrous. Layton is not in charge of national security, with access to nuclear codes and the like. A key point in this debate is that Layton was not really running to be prime minister. In reality, he was running to be the official Opposition leader, which carries with it no real power. He was trying to take

a political party to new heights and to propel it into unchartered waters. He wasn’t about to run the entire country or be in a position to make far-reaching decisions affecting all Canadians. Because of that, I think he was entitled to a pass when it came to answering personal questions about his health. The stakes simply weren’t big enough to warrant that kind of intrusion into his personal life. We already delve too deeply into the personal lives of some of our public officials (the Internet and the blogosphere have made such intrusions more numerous and inappropriate). This was not a case to push things even further. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

UNITED

Thousands of people turned out on a brilliant, sunny long weekend Sunday to celebrate the 12th Street Music Festival. This year’s event was bigger and better because the festival expanded two blocks north, all the way to the Burnaby-New Westminster border on 10th Avenue. That allowed organizers to have multiple stages, including a Caribbean stage; a show-n-shine for vintage cars, a kids’ zone and a community focus block, where local organizations and community groups had information booths. The morning kicked off with the Kiwanis Club of New Westminster pancake breakfast and continued with a salmon barbecue. At noon, the Mardi Gras parade had spectators dancing and enjoying the community feel that is being developed and nurtured on 12th Street. Some of the musical offerings on the day included Really Rod, a Rod Stewart tribute act, Gotta be George Michael, a tribute to the former Wham lead singer and the reggae-soca group, Cordel & the Out of Many Band.

Teens put twist on tale of Caesar Still time to catch local teen actors on stage in Carousel production

Mean streets: Clockwise from left, Sofia Newman as Antony, Isaac Li as Mettalus, Kane Tone as Brutus, Lara Aippersbach as Cassius, Luke McAndless-Davis as Caesar in the Carousel Theatre teen production of Julius Caesar. Both Newman and McAndlessDavis are students at New Westminster Secondary School.

BY CHRISTINA MYERSREPORTER editorial@royalcityrecord.com

Take Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and send it through a gritty, modern crime lens and what you get is this summer’s teen production from Carousel Theatre. A pair of New Westminster teens – 15-year-old Sofia Newman and 16-year-old Luke McAndlessDavis – are taking part in this year’s production. Newman, who is the daughter of stage professionals Lisa Bunting and Richard Newman (the latter is appearing this summer at Bard on the Beach), takes on the famous “Friends, Romans, Countrymen” speech as Marc Antony. She has previously performed with the program in As You Like It, Macbeth and Taming of the Shrew, along with a slew of spots in other productions. McAndless-Davis takes on the title role of Julius Caesar after previously taking on roles as varies as Sly from Taming of the Shrew to Sonny in Grease. He also has film and television credits under his belt, including a spot in Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2 and Level Up. Both are students at New Westminster Secondary School. The Teen Shakespeare program at Carousel is celebrating its 21st year by tackling the famous play with a modern mob-family drama spin. Teen actors aged 13 to 18 from across B.C. are taking part in the production, playing on the Performance Works outdoor stage on Granville Island. The show will run till Aug. 13. Shows run Monday to Saturday at 7:30 p.m. with matinees on Aug. 6 and Aug. 13 at 2 p.m. Tickets are free, but advance reservations can be made at $5 per seat.

Coun. Jonathan Cote didn’t have to look far to find inspiration for his urban design course at Simon Fraser University. The two-term city councillor wrote a project about public open spaces for an urban design course at SFU. His project focused on how to build great public space at Eighth and Columbia streets. “With everything that is happening at this location, there are some small changes that could really improve this space,” he

said in an email to The Record. “I hope to bring some of these ideas to council.” In his project, Cote wrote that renovations that took place in 2009 played a significant role in deterring some of the nuisance behavior that had been occurring on the site. “There is now a greater feeling of safety and comfort in the plaza, which is now starting to attract more positive interactions,” he wrote in his report. “The renovations, however, have fallen short of creating a vibrant and lively space. The site is currently dominated with concrete, which makes the space appear very grey

and lifeless.” Cote believes that a number of things can be done to improve the space, most of which wouldn’t be overly expensive or difficult to accomplish. His suggestions include: adding more trees to Hyack Square; adding moveable tables and chairs to the site; using different paving materials to create a pathway through the site; finding a way to tell the story of the site through public art; enhancing the water play feature; and adding way-finding elements to the site. tmcmanus@ royalcityrecord.com

Blues fest coming to Burnaby BY STEFANIA SECCIA REPORTER editorial@royalcityrecord.com

The much-anticipated Burnaby Blues and Roots Festival is just around the corner, and this year it features top-notch headliners such as Western Canada’s own k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang. On Aug. 13 at Deer Lake Park in neighbouring Burnaby, from 2 to 10 p.m., international staples in the blues, rock, alternative and country scenes will alight the stage for the event hosted by both the City of Burnaby and the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. “I think the lineup we have, and the headliners k.d. lang and John Mayall, is phenomenal,” said JulieAnne Slade, the Shadbolt’s special events officer. “We haven’t always had a list in terms of performers featuring a Canadian female artist who sang at the Olympics.” Besides the two major headliners, the festival will showcase Ireland’s

Imelda May; Luke Doucet, who’s toured with Sarah McLachlan on the Lillith Fair circuit; Matt Anderson, a grassroots performer from New Brunswick; The Secret Sisters, who recorded in Nashville at the famous Blackbird studios; Victoria, B.C.’s own Current Swell; and Ben Rodgers and the Black Oats, a four-piece country/Americana band. Apart from the influx of talent from across the nation and the globe, the park itself will offer other forms of entertainment as well for the whole family – including a food fair, artisan market and kids’ arts activity zone. “There will be an area called ‘Art’s Home’,” Slade said. “Art is the mascot for the Shadbolt.” The kids’ zone is open from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m., and kids will have the opportunity to make their very own cardboard guitars. “We do it every year,” she said. “Kids love it.” Art’s Home will also feature a few perform-

ances from the local group Pangaea Arts, which is a street theatre storytelling act, according to Slade. The artisan market will feature a vast array of handmade crafts, often wearable, such as jewelry, ceramics, arts glass, exotic henna tattoos, carvings made from leaves, artisan honey and much more. “There will be a variety of festival food options, but that hasn’t been released yet,” Slade noted. “Watch out for the pullout on the website that will list the options soon.” Parking in the vicinity is limited, and festival-goers are encouraged to use alternate forms of transportation or ride the free Lynch Bus Lines shuttle from BCIT. There’s also a road closure notice from noon until 10:30 p.m. that will be implemented by the RCMP on Deer Lake Avenue, between Sperling Avenue and Century Park Way. Note that bicycles will not be permitted in the park,

but racks will be set up near both gates. “The festival organizers highly recommend reading through the guidelines to avoid disappointment and not cause an inconvenience,” Slade told the Burnaby NOW. Such rules include a ban on professional cameras (defined as ones with a detachable lens), umbrellas, non-assistance animals, alcoholic or canned drinks. Slade stressed that reading the guidelines online beforehand will prevent any misunderstanding about what’s allowed through the gates and what’s not. The two gates (main and west) both open at 1 p.m. The main gate closes at 9 p.m., and the west gate will close at 6 p.m. for allowing entrance.

Early detection helps in fighting oral cancer BY STEFANIA SECCIA REPORTER editorial@royalcityrecord.com

Although oral cancer is not as widespread as its cousins, breast, prostrate and skin cancers, it can be just as devastating if it’s not first tracked in the earliest stage. According to a local New Westminster dentist, oral cancer is treatable as long as it’s detected early. “It’s a devastating disease,” said Dr. Hedy Lam of Uptown Family Dental. “When you can see it visually, it’s already in its later stages.” If oral cancer detection is too late, then removal of affected parts of the mouth is imminent and the only option, followed by chemotherapy. “Imagine getting your jaw cut out and parts of your tongue removed,” Lam said. “After

the surgery, your quality of life decreases. … It can be quite disfiguring.” One North American dies of oral cancer every hour of every day, and it’s mostly discovered in its late stages, when the fiveyear survival rate is only about 30 per cent. However, when it’s discovered early by a two-minute exam it can, essentially, be cured because all of the cancerous cells are removed. “Even for a treatment to other cancers, a lot of it is surgical by removing the cancer from the breast or prostate,” Lam said. “The same thing goes for the mouth.” Generally, oral cancer is not as well known or talked about as other cancers, but that may be because it’s not reported as much since it’s very difficult to detect until it’s too late. “Although it’s devastating, it’s

not a top five cancer, but it’s still top 10,” Lam added. Uptown Family Dental includes the VELscope Vx Enhanced Oral Assessment system into its regular hygiene checkup, unless patients opt out. “We use one on all patients, regardless of risk,” Lam added. “Traditionally, you were higher risk if you were a smoker or alcoholic.” But, due to a strain from the HPV virus that research showed as a link to oral cancer, oral sex is also a risk. “It’s not invasive,” Lam said of the VELscope, which is essentially a fluorescent light shone into the mouth. “The parts of the mouth that reflect the blue back are normal. Dark spots most likely mean cancer.” Lam, who graduated from UBC in 2009, said that despite receiving

the training to use different types of the VELscope machine not all dental practices have one. “It was a surprise to learn that they don’t do this type of test everywhere,” Lam added. Dr. Michele Williams, the B.C. Cancer Agency’s oral medicine leader for B.C.’s oral cancer prevention program, said getting a smoking or alcoholic habit under control is another step towards prevention. “It’s actually a skin cancer,” Williams said. “It’s about the sixth most common (cancer) in the world and in our community,” she added. “Last year or so, about 3,200 people died from cancers of the mouth or pharynx.” About 85 per cent of oral cancer victims could have been detected by dentists earlier. “Certainly, other cancers get press. They’re more common,”

Williams said. “If you catch it early, it can be cured.” Early detection and prevention is what Williams’ team is working to improve. “Our team is working on leading the way in terms of information to the community and creating research for this program,” Williams noted. “We’re committed to early detection.” Essentially, if oral cancer is detected early, the cure rates rise with it. “It’s good to get the word out there,” Lam explained. “Nobody thinks they have cancer because it always happens to someone else. It’s good to have all of your bases covered.” For more information about oral cancer, check out the B.C. Cancer Agency’s research from the oral cancer prevention program at www.orcanet.ca.

New Westies win fourth B.C. banner Field coach steps down

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

There is no mistaking the 1993-born New Westminster Salmonbellies when it comes to provincial championship finals. The team of New Westminster intermediate boys won its fourth provincial A1 title of their minor lacrosse careers following a resounding 16-4 victory over Coquitlam in the provincial championship final at Queen’s Park Arena on Monday. Lucky to advance to the gold-medal final after a 1-2 record in the round robin, New West eked its way into the final game on a tie-break over Langley and Richmond. New Westminster’s 11-9 win over Langley in the final preliminary round game proved the difference in the outcome. “We were getting mixed messages by everyone, saying we had to win by three, five, six goals,” said New Westminster goalie Rocky Bowman, who backstopped the intermediate ’Bellies win with 25 saves. “Yeah, I know, it was a rough way to go – 1-2. But our coach gave us a pretty good speech before the game and 16-4, you can’t get much better than that.” New Westminster, the regular season champions with a 21-3 league record, jumped out to an early 3-0 lead and then built a 6-1 advantage heading into the second period. New West dropped its first two games of the tournament, falling 7-6 to Coquitlam on Friday and again by the same score to league runner-up Richmond the following day. “For whatever reason we were really flat. But this team has a history in the gold medal game at the provincials,” said New Westminster head coach Don MacDonald. The core of the New Westminster teens won previous A1 provincial titles at the peewee, bantam and midget levels. “It’s an amazing accomplishment. Last year, we overachieved. We knocked Coquitlam out of the gold medal game and then out of the medals at (last year’s) provincials,” said MacDonald. “We’re pretty good at getting the ball back and in the big games, we’re pretty good at putting it in the net, too.” In fact, very good. New Westminster spread the scoring among eight shooters, including two goals and two assists from player of the game and team captain Justin Goodwin. The Salmonbellies leading scorer Josh Byrne showed the team’s will to win, leading all scorers in the final game with six points, including a hat trick, despite playing all the tournament

Luke Gillespie, Chris Nasato, Nathan Stewart, Brett Carlson and Reese Robinson all contributed two goals to the Salmonbellies scoresheet. Drew Millikin potted a single firstperiod marker. MacDonald rightly described New Westminster’s accomplishment as an indication of a true team.

“Mark my words. This group here will win a Minto Cup,” MacDonald said, adding that the victory had a personal meaning for him as well. “I grew up here. I lived at First and Third for 40-plus years. I played in a Minto Cup here and a Mann Cup, but this is my first gold medal. “It’s pretty special,” he said.

Simon Fraser University men’s field lacrosse cohead coach Jeff Cathrea announced his resignation on Sunday. After seven seasons at SFU and with the Burnaby Mountain Selects program, Cathrea made the decision in order to pursue a Master’s degree in physical therapy. Together with fellow cohead coach Brent Hoskins, Cathrea holds the single season school records with 16 wins and 76 career victories. The two were also honoured as Pacific Northwest Collegiate Lacrosse League Division I coaches of the year on three occasions from 2008 to 2010. Cathrea helped SFU garner a 76-32 won/losss record since being named co-head coach back in 2005. Over that period, Cathrea led the Clan to back-to-back conference championships in 2008 and 2009, and appearances in three Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association national championships, including a trip to the semifinals in 2010. Cathrea began as a player at SFU in 1997, where he became a four-year starting captain at attack. Hoskins will assume the head coaching duties at SFU.

Salmonbellies opens playoff against Burrards tonight BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

The New Westminster Salmonbellies made their point. In fact, one point was all the three-time defending B.C. champions needed to secure first place in the Western Lacrosse Association. New West rallied to tie Burnaby 10-10 with three goals in the final four minutes of regulation time before settling for an 11-11 overtime draw at Queen’s Park Arena on Thursday. On Sunday, the Salmonbellies allowed the Maple Ridge Burrards to sneak into the semifinal playoffs following a 12-7 loss in the final game of the league sched-

ule. New Westminster will meet the Burrards in the first game of the playoffs at Queen’s Park Arena tonight (Wednesday) at 7:45 p.m. The Salmonbellies finished atop the standings with a record of 11-5-2, but ended on a rather sour note, losing three of their last four outings. “We’re still trying to find a way to play consistently together. We need everyone on the same page, and until we get to that point, we have to keep plugging away,” said New Westminster’s player of the game, Ilija Gajic, following Thursday’s draw. At home, New West came up against a desperate Burnaby

Lakers club and a young goaltender in Dan Lewis, who made 56 saves to help his team salvage a badly needed point. In Maple Ridge, the Salmonbellies dressed an incomplete lineup that included four call-ups in its final regular season game. Despite the outcomes in the final weeks of the regular season, Gajic said that the current Salmonbellies lineup was built with one goal in mind. “Honestly, our only goal is to win a Mann Cup,” added Gajic, who scored four goals and added four assists against his former Lakers and then added four more points in the loss to Maple Ridge. “This team turned the corner a

couple of years ago and now we want to build a team to win it.” Gajic added that the memory of losing the 2009 Mann Cup in the final minute of Game 7 before a packed partisan crowd at Queen’s Park Arena is still very much alive. “We choked. I choked. No one gives a crap about going to the final. We have that mentality now. Now we have to flip the page and get it done,” Gajic said. “We want to be the best team in the league. We can’t look at it any other way.”

B.C. teams settle for silver Spot the QUARTERBACK at Canadian girls’ national A N D WIN!

BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

B.C. played the bridesmaid again at the Canadian bantam and midget girls’ lacrosse championships last week. The bantam girls lost for a second time in three games against the defending champions from Ontario, falling 4-3 in the gold-medal final at Queen’s Park Arena on Thursday. B.C.’s midget girls lost the national final 3-1, also to Team Ontario on Thursday. “When I reflect back on the game, I see we outshot them, we scored first and for the most part outplayed them, and we had more than our fair chance of finishing most of them,” said B.C. bantam head coach Duncan Shanks. But Ontario’s Alexis Kinmond had other ideas, potting a natural hat trick for the winners between the first and third periods. Kaitlin Tse of Ontario scored the game-winning goal midway through the final period. Jolene Robinson of Burnaby scored her teamleading fifth goal of the tournament from Burnaby’s Amie Morrison and Megan Kinna in an attempted comeback. Bianca Ballarin backstopped B.C. to the silver with 18 saves in goal. B.C. defeated Ontario on the first day of the fiveday competition. Robinson tallied a late goal in the game. She also shared the Team scoring with Squwey Gottfriedsen and captain Harlowe Steele, all with five goals and nine points. Emily Manville and Allison Shanks of New Westminster finished the national tournament ninth in overall scoring, with eight points apiece. Naomi

Seventh sister: New Westminster’s Morgan Sherley, in blue, was one of seven locals on B.C.’s midget team. Noda was 12th in scoring with six points. The provincial midget girls were less fortunate, taking a perfect 6-0 record all the way to the final game before falling to Ontario in the gold-medal final. “(Ontario) changed. They went zone defence. Our girls had to shoot from outside. We hit a few posts, but I’m very proud of our girls. They ran the tournament, but just came out shy,” said B.C. head coach Dan Stroup. New Westminster’s Jenna Chernoff registered her eighth point of the nationals, setting up Kaity Vanderkoy for B.C.’s only goal of the final. B.C. opened up with a 54 win over Ontario on opening day. New Westminster’s Shaya Sandhu and Lauren Stewart, with a shorthanded tally, chipped in with B.C.’s scoring. On the Monday, the host

midgets came away with a 4-2 win over Ontario. Tristan Ranford of New West had a two-point night for B.C., while Chernoff got the game-winner midway through the final frame. Alberta beat Team Atlantic in both the bantam and midget girls’ bronzemedal matches. Mary McQueen led a seven-player New Westminster contingent with five goals and eight assists. Sandhu was eighth overall with 12 points, including four goals, while Rianne Wilkinson chipped in with 11 points. The difference in the final game was the play of Ontario goalie Melissa Harris, who stopped 25 shots for the win. “Our pick-and-roll game wouldn’t work today… but our girls didn’t quit. I’ve very proud of them,” Stroup added.

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. 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. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle! Aug. 2
