‘Over the moon’ about Pride Hells Angels at fest ◗ CITY

Second annual Pride Week exceeds all expectations BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER

Organizers of New Westminster’s 2011 Pride Week events were hoping to get a better turnout in the celebration’s second year and, brother, they got it. “It was beyond our wildest expectations. We’re over the moon and happy that it keeps growing. It’s growing faster than we expected,” said Andre Hall, Royal City Pride Society president. “I think there was about 1,500 people in the park over the day.” Better weather, bigger musical acts, more publicity and more help from sponsors helped draw the crowds, according to Nancy Kato, the society’s communications director. “We thought it was absolutely fabulous. It was a huge turnout,” Kato said. Turnout for pride was in the lower hundreds in the inaugural year in 2010. Pride Week 2011 consisted of 10 events over four days including a dance, meet-and-greet, brunches and barbecues, a stage show, the “Hill in Heels” march up the Sixth Street hill in high heels for charity, an official proclamation at city hall recognizing Pride Week and a pride party in Tipperary Park. “Every event was packed. There was not one event that was slow,” Hall said. A highlight of this year’s event for Hall was the amount of support coming from local politicos and police, including New Westminster MLA Dawn Black and New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly, some provincial government representatives including Premier Christy Clark’s outreach worker and former CTV anchor Pamela Martin, as well as a couple cabinet ministers.

The City of New Westminster’s concern about the Hells Angels attendance at the recent 12th Street Music Festival has increased since gang violence erupted in Kelowna on the weekend. Some community members and city officials were surprised to discover that the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club had set up a booth at the 12th Street Music Festival, where it was selling items such as T-shirts. The city had provided the West End Business Association with $6,300 in cash and in-kind services for the July 31 festival. “It is not acceptable, totally not acceptable,” said Mayor Wayne Wright. “They shouldn’t have been there in the first place.” Wright said city council will discuss the matter and consider ways of ensuring the city has more control over the grant process so this type of situation doesn’t occur in the future. “It is almost an embarrassment to think we had those people in our city. How many people would invite the Hells Angels to a community event?” he said. “It will never

be acceptable to invite them. Not with what’s going on – why would we?” The Vancouver Sun has reported that a member of the Red Scorpions was killed and a member of the White Rock Hells Angels was seriously injured after gunfire erupted outside a busy Kelowna casino on Sunday afternoon. That incident has heightened concerns about the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club’s attendance at the 12th Street Music Festival. Coun. Bob Osterman said city council will have to have an in camera meeting with its solicitor to discuss the issue and get legal advice. “I was totally shocked when I saw them there,” he said. “I thought it was inappropriate. That is not the image of a family function.” While the city had thought “good common sense” would be used to approve vendors at community festivals, Osterman said that didn’t occur, so guidelines may be needed. “I don’t think you can be too safe,” he said. “Our goal is to have community functions that are safe for families.” John Ashdown, president of the West End Business Association, has issued an apology to the city for the “misjudgment” in allowing the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club to display its merchandise at the festival.

deal with it accordingly,” he said. “It doesn’t means it’s all about enforcement.” In an open letter to supporters of the 12th Street Music Festival, Ashdown said organizers worked for two months to put the event together. He noted that the festival brought much-needed economic benefits to 12th Street businesses. “By attending the many other successful festivals in the Lower Mainland, we attracted vendors and

sponsors who created such a great positive energy at their festival,” he wrote. “To meet the expansion and higher than normal budget of our festival, I attended a very successful charity Show and Shine event in Coquitlam and circulated a brochure inviting cars and vendors to 12th Street in support of our version of a Show and Shine.” According to Ashdown, the HellsAngels Motorcycle Club applied for a spot to display its gear.

With an increasingly urbanized popuWe hope it stays that way. lation, it’s tempting to see Wi-Fi as just Parks have been around a long


another park amenity – like showers, interpretive stations and barbecue pits. To think that way would be a mistake. There are few places left in the modern world that are free from the electronic clutter that occupies the rest of our lives. Parks are among them. When we turn off the smartphones and computers, we are forced to look up and do something we used to do more of – see the world around us, or talk face-to-face with each other.

Many of our most vivid childhood experiences happen outdoors. It’s doubtful that an app on the iPhone will offer that kind of memory. It’s becoming increasingly difficult for people to find time to “unplug” from work and the stresses of everyday life. Bringing internet access into the great outdoors certainly won’t help. We’re with those who would prefer to heed the call of the wild rather than the call of the Wi-Fi when we head off into nature.

Hydro report gives valuable insight IN THE HOUSE



ne of the first thoughts to cross my mind as I read a government panel report of B.C. Hydro operations was “why aren’t more of these produced?” The Hydro report provides a great glimpse into the inner workings of the huge Crown corporation, and it bared a lot of things for all to see, both positive and negative. It would be great to see a similar panel – the one in this case was made up of three civil servants – delve into the operations of other Crowns such as ICBC and B.C. Lotteries (not to mention the health authorities). The Hydro report paints a picture of a corporation that is top-heavy with bloated salaries and immersed in a “gold standard” corporate culture that strives for excellence but which also becomes mired in a cautious, self-protecting approach to things. But the report also shows how B.C. Hydro has been used as a cash cow and treated like a political football by successive provincial governments for decades. The personal compensation

issue is embarrassing for the Crown corporation. Employees are paid a massive amount of overtime, and pretty well everyone – with the exception of one per cent of the workforce – gets performance bonuses as well. Despite all the hue and cry over the years from its unionized staff that the corporation was being shifted to the private sector, the fact is B.C. Hydro has actually been growing in size year after year. A Vancouver Sun database shows that an astounding 2,371 people employed by B.C. Hydro make more than $100,000 a year. That represents more than 16 per cent of the extended public sector for the entire province. Five individuals – all members of one of the corporation’s unions – made more than $100,000 in overtime alone. In all, overtime cost more than $50 million, and performance bonuses approached that high number as well. (Of course, I don’t begrudge any B.C. Hydro linemen being paid overtime in a dangerous job to restore power at 2 a.m. during a storm.) But for all the hits B.C. Hydro is taking for the report, it can take solace in the fact that the panel has opened the door for some changes that may benefit the corporation. For example, Hydro pays the provincial government more than $300 million a year in water rental fees, which the panel notes is twice the rate paid by its ◗Hydro Page 7

Kudos, from Forseth to Black

Dear Editor:

I send deserved congratulations and a sincere thank you to Dawn Black upon her retirement. Few are willing or able to make the sacrifice to move from voter-observer, to candidate and political office holder, and to accommodate the personal criticism and loss of privacy that public office brings. From one who knows what it takes, I give my unqualified best wishes. Thank you Dawn, for your many years of dedicated service to our community. Paul Forseth, by email

Criticism of ticket is disgusting Dear Editor:

Re: Beware of parking tickets, Letters to the Editor, The Record, Aug. 3

I am a resident of New Westminster and have been living here for a number of years now, and I am a very law-abiding citizen to my adoptive country. This letter from Judy Dixon that you printed in the paper is very disgraceful, you should not have printed it in the first place. She is not a cop, paramedic and/or firefighter. She is just an ordinary citizen, helping a person in need. It is not a privilege for her to park anywhere/any way that suited her because she is helping someone. By the way, it was not an emergency situation. I was disgusted with her for even calling out to the officer to dispute and reason out her mistake. I was disgusted with you as an editor for even printing it for everyone to read her stupidity. Law is law, and it applies to every single one of us. Paz Mazaredo, New Westminster

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Words do have power continued from page 6

There is a basic principle here that very few properly understand. One might also ask you if every word has a tremendous power: What about the names (words) of people, countries, cities, provinces, states, etc.? What effect do they have? Croft Stanfield, Burnaby

Justice delayed too long Dear Editor:

In light of the London riots, much has been said about the snail’s pace of the Canadian legal system as it pertains to the Vancouver riot. Within hours of the criminal mayhem in England, over 1,000 arrests had been made and over 100 charges had been laid. Conversely, two months after Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final, not a single charge has been brought forward by the Attorney General’s office (despite 37 confessions and ample evidence). Premier Christy Clark talked tough about holding our local looters, arsonists, vandals and violent offenders accountable. However, her post-riot photo-op holding a broom seems befitting now of a government intent on sweeping the physical, financial and political damage under

the rug. As parents and educators know, when you promise consequences for broken rules, you better be prepared to follow through with swift action. Otherwise, you lose all credibility, authority and ultimately the confidence and respect of the “good” ones (the ones that know that “everyone else was doing it” is never an acceptable excuse). Meanwhile, for our downtown victims, including some small, family-run businesses which have yet to reopen, we can only hope that justice delayed does not shamefully result in justice denied. Harman Pandher, Burnaby

Medicinal pot is a right Dear Editor:

Re: Burnaby medical marijuana dispensary raided by police Thursday, Burnaby NOW online, July 29. Shame on the Burnaby RCMP for making life difficult for sick people. These sick people in Burnaby who need medicinal cannabis will be forced to make the long trip to Vancouver to buy medicine. The sick and disabled should not be treated like second-class citizens just because we use flowers to feel better. Nobody deserves to go to jail for flowers. All human beings have the right to use plants as medicine. Ellis Worthington, Vancouver

Hydro: Insights are valuable continued from page 6

This is one of the examples of B.C. Hydro being treated like a cash cow by government. Halving those water rental rates could cut overall hydro rates by more than four per cent (the panel estimates that $35 million is equal to a one per cent increase or decrease to hydro rates). The panel also recommends that B.C. Hydro be allowed to use a more flexible formula in determining what constitutes energy “self-sufficiency,” which it is mandated to achieve a few years from now. By moving away from using a worst-case scenario (severe drought conditions) to measure self-sufficiency, B.C. Hydro will not have to buy as much power from private power sources, which could save

it a bundle of money (and which could also ease pressure pushing hydro rates steadily upward). This change to the definition of self-sufficiency is repudiation of one of former premier Gordon Campbell’s last acts before he announced he was stepping down. Long a champion of growing the province’s private power industry, Campbell tied B.C. Hydro’s hands in a way that would have benefited that private industry. But not now. But one recommendation from the panel may prove problematic. It wants B.C. Hydro to defer more than $800 million in capital spending – money largely used to upgrade and maintain its vast network of dams, generators and transmission lines. The report itself includes a section that

examines the impact of not spending enough on infrastructure. Starting when Bill Vander Zalm became premier, through the NDP administrations of the 1990s and the first term of the B.C. Liberals, B.C. Hydro was effectively forced to spend a minimum on capital. The result of this capital starvation has been recent breakdowns of key power generation stations, which costs money and lost service to ratepayers. One can only hope cutting that $800 million doesn’t make a current problem even worse. But, all in all, the panel’s report on B.C. Hydro is a good, informative read. Like I say, I wish we could see more of them. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global B.C.

It’s marmot madness around the region lately. Earlier this month, The Record ran a photo of a baby marmot in the care of the Wildlife Rescue Association of B.C. The young creature had been captured by an anonymous local resident. The resident involved contacted The Record afterwards to let readers know that the baby was scheduled to head back home to the Interior as soon as arrangements could be made. “This marmot was first sighted in our back yard (on Richmond Street) having a great feast of lettuce,” wrote Charles Turney. “It then went across the lane to our neighbours’ yard and made it his home, eating all of their swiss chard, cab-

Little guy: Marmots, like this young one found in a local backyard, are not native to the Lower Mainland. bage plants, kale and whatever it fancied.” Turney says he phoned the rescue association and they loaned him a humane trap to try and catch the animal. “I set the trap in their yard and put a few leaves of lettuce inside. The next morning, the marmot was inside,” he said. They put a blanket over the cage, to minimize stress for the animal, and

then brought it to the rescue association centre at Burnaby Lake. An adult marmot was captured last month in Burnaby. In that instance, it took five days for the marmot to be trapped. It’s believed it travelled down in a local resident’s car after a camping trip to the Squamish area. It too will be returned to the Interior. ChristinaMyersA

Cool summer hits vendors

Ice-cream trucks have a harder time when Mother Nature forgets to turn up the heat BY STEFANIA SECCIA REPORTER

The feeling of cold, melting chocolate peanut butter swirl scoops dribbling down the hand that’s wrapped around a cone … It’s enough to get anybody running towards the sound of the local icecream truck. On a hot summer’s day, ice-cream vendors can make a lot of money, depending on the route. But the problem this year – and the last few – is that summer has been a lot chillier and wetter than usual. According to two ice-cream truck companies, the more cold days in summer, the less money in their pockets. “We’ve had a really rough go of it the last couple of years,” said Ana Lepine, owner of Mr. Cool Ice Cream Ltd. “We don’t sell much at all (in cold weather).” Lepine has been in the business for more than 25 years, but for the past few, she’s shut down all but one of her factories in B.C., the last of which is based in Surrey. “The number 1 factor is the weather,” Lepine explained. “I was the largest vendor, with over 70 ice-cream trucks, but I had to close three depots and now I’m down to one depot.”

Get ready for annual Quayside fest

Popular annual event for local residents will return to the Quay this Saturday BY STEFANIA SECCIA REPORTER

The boardwalk will be flooded with hidden treasures and items to swap for the fifth year in a row on Aug. 20. The Quayside Boardwalk Festival and Sale overlooking the Fraser River is making a comeback again this year, and all are welcome. “There were over 7,500 people who came last year,” said James Crosty, president of the Quayside Community Board. “We’re considered one of the largest recycling events in New West because everything that’s sold is one person’s junk and another person’s collector’s item.” The festival and sale takes place the third Saturday of every August and offers 150-plus tables to peruse between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. “There are many community booths,” Crosty added. The outdoor boardwalk fest will feature other delights with food vendors, a kids’ zone and even a pets’ zone. “It’ll be more than double the Royal City Farmer’s Market, and the amount of our sponsors has doubled,” Crosty said. The new and improved kids’ zone will feature all kinds of fun, including a bouncy castle and five-metre fire truck balloon slide, according to Crosty. “The stuff that’s left behind (by the sellers with display tables) is taken to a local charity,” Crosty said. “There’s lots of treasure to be found.” The other new addition to the festival is the pets’ zone where pets can be brought to receive a nice bath. “This is a real family-friendly, petfriendly and kid-friendly festival,” Crosty noted. “You can bring your dog to be washed. This is sponsored by the Columbia Square Animal Hospital.” There will be three stages for three different bands to perform, and during each band’s break, there will be either gospel singers, belly dancing or other types of dancing taking place. “There may even be a yoga demonstration, maybe,” Crosty added about other potential performances. He also said the festival gives back to the local economy. “There is a fairly vibrant exchange of goods and services,” he added. “People are picking up really neat stuff.” The food bank will also be making an appearance, and it will be situated in the main area, Reliance Court. People are encouraged to bring nonperishable foods with them for donation. Last year, the festival had a raffle draw where $800 was raised and donated to the

Royal City Musical Theatre, according to Crosty, who also noted that there will be another raffle this year. “There are some really cool prizes this year,” he said. There will also be tents featuring local businesses and organizations. “It’s the type of festival where one partner is entertaining the kid while the other one is eating,” Crosty explained. There is pay parking provided by the adjacent River Market and city parking. Crosty said participants in the festival can also access it by transit if it’s not within walking distance from their homes. The festival is located on the boardwalk (and not within the River Market) stretching from the office tower all the way to the rail bridge and Quayside Park. The annual event is hosted by the Quayside Community Board, which is made up of one delegate and one alternate from all 17 residential buildings around Quayside. The group represents just under 2,000 units and an estimated 4,500 individuals. To find out more about the event, visit editorial@

Local police pipe band takes top spot

Two first-place finishes for city’s police pipe band BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER

While Burnaby’s Simon Fraser University Pipe Band is known for its crowded trophy case, the New Westminster Police Pipe Band also now has some impressive feats to

pipe about. The band recently took two first-place finishes at the North American Pipe Band Championships and the Montreal Highland Festival – personal bests in the band’s 70-year history. “It felt really good. It’s been a long time coming,” said Angus MacPherson, the band’s pipe major. “We won in Montreal once before about five or six years ago, and we

placed second in the North American championships before but after trying a few times.” The band – made up of 14 pipers, six side drummers, three tenor drummers and one bass drummer – took first place in the modern medley competition and traditional march, strathspey and reel, at the North American championships on July 30 in Maxville, Ont.

The next day, a repeat performance in Montreal netted another first place finish. MacPherson said the band typically practises in New Westminster twice a week, which is tough to manage as band members live as far away as Seattle, Vancouver Island, the Interior and Alberta. Leading up the competition, the band practised as many as three times a day.

Despite the name, band members are not necessarily police. MacPherson helped revive the old Maple Ridge pipe band and secured a share of the funding for it from the New Westminster Police. “They’re everything from students to lawyers, to police officers and everything in between, MacPherson said. “Age 16 or 17 to 60.” Competitive piping

dates back to about the 12th century when the Highland clans of Scotland would meet up for games. But instead of just tossing a caber or putting a stone, clan chiefs would also send their best pipers forward to demonstrate the clan’s strength and prowess by marching in formation, forming a circle and letting loose a cacophony of complex harmonies and rhythms.

Digging up history in local cemetery sites OUR PAST



he City of New Westminster was founded in early 1859, and the process of clearing land, making the river’s edge into useable moorage for vessels, building houses and other buildings, laying out trails and roads, and many other items on the pioneers’ and Royal Engineers’ massive “to-do list,” all were leading to

the establishment of the new capital. All new towns spent considerable time and effort seeing to their community’s basic needs connected to life and death. For ‘life’ there had to be medical attention, cooperation among new citizens and with those in authority, assistance to those in need, supplies of food and water, and sometimes law and order. In death the matter of law, order and authority was evident along with care, compassion, spiritual needs and finally, an appropriate burial with some form of ceremony and respect for the deceased.

A graveyard was prethe First Nations of this pared for use in the new area, also dealing regucity in 1859, but even larly with life and death, before it was buried their ready, there dead with due were deaths. ceremony and While respect in sites “A graveyard research is this local was prepared for on ongoing on landscape. these earliest Over the use in the new deaths in the decades, area, we know city in 1859, but examples of of at least one, even before it these burials and possibly have been two references was ready, there recorded, and to burials in we will talk were deaths.” another locamore of this tion as yet at a later date THE MILLERS unconfirmed. in this column Columnists Before turnand elsewhere. ing to the first For now, back official burial to this early ground in this city, we burial ground in New must remember that Westminster.

While the Royal Engineers had a camp apart from the city, the first cemetery in the city was also referred to at times as being for soldiers and others or as a military site, and it is this burial ground, now referred to as the Dufferin Street Cemetery, that we are referring to. This site was on land set aside for Church of England use at the corner, in modern terms, of Agnes Street at Dufferin Street. This cemetery had relatively few burials before being closed to official use in the early 1860s when the new, much larger cemetery was begun far up the hill along Douglas

Road in the area of today’s high school. The story of the Dufferin Street site is intriguing. It includes a number of curious accounts of the site’s use, closing and reuse after the removal of the markers and remains. It is an interesting tale of the early city and its growth, as is the account of a number of decades of research.

If the regular season is any indication, we’re in for a long Western Lacrosse Association playoff final. The matchup between the Langley Thunder and the three-time defending B.C. champions is an intriguing one. Langley, third-place finishers with an 8-8-2 record, swept league runner-up Victoria in straight games in its semifinal. The New Westminster Salmonbellies had a spot of trouble with Maple Ridge before getting by the Burrards in five games following an 8-5 win at home last Thursday. The Thunder have never won a B.C. senior A playoff final in any of its former incarnations since breaking into the league as the North Shore Indians back in 1994. New Westminster has been stuck on an unprecedented 24 Mann Cups and has desperately thirsted for more than a decade for that all-elusive 25th Canadian championship title. With the incentive of hosting the national senior A championships at home, both teams do not need much to get themselves ready for a series that many believe could go the distance. The one factor in New Westminster’s favour is experience.

In overall medals, B.C. eclipsed the opposition, winning 130 gold out of 261 total medals. Alberta was next with 53 gold, 99 silver and 80 bronze. Saskatchewan had 45 gold and 133 total medals. Manitoba was

next with a total haul of 115 medals. Liu opened with a silver medal in the open women’s 1,500-metre freestyle, but was perfect the rest of the way. The Burnaby swimmer started off with a gold in the 400m free last Friday, winning by nearly seven seconds Sherry Liu: over B.C. teammate Four gold

Taylor Padington. Liu also dominated the 800m free the following day, winning in a time of 8:35.17, nine seconds in front of metric mile gold medallist Tyra Rooney of Alberta. Liu was almost three full minutes ahead of Rooney in the indoor women’s 5,000m, breaking the one-hour barrier

in a winning time of 59:48.70. She also shared a gold medal with B.C. in the 4x200m free relay. “This was a great end to a great season. I am very excited for next year,” said Liu in a Western Canada Games online press release. B.C. dominated Alberta 6-2 in the badminton gold-medal final ◗Games Page 24

Martin to return to curling classic BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER

It may be the dog days of summer, but it’s not too early to start planning for your Thanksgiving weekend. Olympic gold medal curling champion Kevin Martin is scheduled to return to the Royal City for the 12th annual Westcoast Curling Classic, which will be held from Oct. 6 to 10 at the Royal City Curling Club in New Westminster. Teams from Finland, Russia, Japan and the United States join former Canadian and world champion Kevin Koe as part of the field that will vie for thousands of dollars in cash prizes. The action kicks off on Oct. 6 when junior curlers from the Lower Mainland play and learn with some of the professional curl-

On a roll: Tristan Smyth, seen training in South Burnaby prior to the Western Canada Summer Games, won three gold medals in men’s wheelchair races, taking first place in the 200, 400 and 1,500 metres at the Kamloops Games.

ers. This is followed by a cash Skins Game featuring Martin’s team and the Finnish national team skipped by Kasper Hakunti. The main event gets underway on Friday morning with the final games being played on Monday afternoon. Last year’s event attracted followers from throughout the region. More than 3,000 spectators watched 16 draws (88 games) leading up to the final match between Martin and Koe, with Martin emerging a 6-4 winner. Companies interested in getting involved in this year’s event are advised there are still sponsorship opportunities available.

two-on-one in the second period of Game 5. Left-side shooter Mark Negrin led all New Westminster shooters with 13 points in the final, including six markers. Brandon Goodwin finished the series with five goals and 10 total points. But while the back end, starting from Scigliano on out, were perhaps the true stars of the series, holding Coquitlam to little more than seven goals again, it was a lack of goals, especially in the final periods that sealed New West’s fate. “If we were going to lose, this was the best way to lose, knowing we played the best we can,” Sproule added. “The coach told us to just empty the tank and no mental lapses and we’ll win the game. But we lost. It was tough luck.” “We’ve got a fantastic group of kids. They did everything the coaching staff asked them to do,” Perreault said. “When they worked so hard as each of them did, I’d like to see them rewarded.” Coquitlam’s Travis Cornwall was named the series MVP. In the eastern final, the Whitby Warriors defeated Orangeville 7-6 in Game 7 of the Ontario junior A final played on Monday. The Minto Cup begins Aug. 19 in Okotoks, Alta.

In fact, the Thunder franchise has only ever been to two WLA finals – back-to-back losses to Victoria in 1996 and again in ‘97. The club moved to Kelowna as the Okanagan Thunder in 2001 but returned to North Shore after two unsuccessful seasons. In 2004, it became the Langley Thunder but has only made the playoffs once since then in 2009, when it was swept 4-0 in the semifinals by the same New Westminster Salmonbellies. On Wednesday, the Thunder gets perhaps its best chance at a little payback. In three league games this season, Langley arguably matched up as well or better than any other WLA team against the Salmonbellies, winning one game in late June and losing an earlier contest by a single goal in overtime. In both those games, WLA rookie of the year Brodie

match. Burnaby’s Clinton Wong defeated Matt Chan 21-11, 21-11 in the men’s singles. Wong and Nathan Choi won the men’s doubles over Nathan Osborne and Mac Lee 21-19, 21-11. B.C. was upset in the boys’ soccer final 2-0 by Alberta. Burnaby Selects Adriano Clemente, Mark Baldisimo, Parker Ellis and Alexander Lazazzera all won silver medals with Team B.C. Lazazzera scored a goal in B.C.’s 2-0 win over the Yukon in pool play. B.C. also knocked off Manitoba 3-0. Sofia Savkovic of Burnaby posted the top score in the uneven bars during the allaround competition in girls’ artistic gymnastics. Savkovic recorded a 13.750 score

on bars, but finished in 14th place with a 50.000 score in the four-event all-around. In the final of the uneven bars, Savkovic finished in fourth place with a score of 12.600. Earlier, Burnaby North Secondary student Peitra Gant was named player of the game in B.C.’s 61-60 victory over Manitoba in the gold-medal final. Gant scored seven points and hauled down 17 rebounds in the championship final. In boys’ basketball, Burnaby South student Martin Bogajev was named the tournament MVP and Djordje Obradovic a tournament all-star for the gold-medalwinning B.C. team. The next Western Canada Summer Games will be held in Wood Buffalo, Alta. in 2015.

MacDonald was a standout for the Thunder. There are also nine players on the Langley club that have played at one time of another in the Salmonbellies red, white and blue, including playoff goal-scoring leader Athan Iannucci. Along the back end are former junior Salmonbellie captain Jarrett Toll, rookie Rob Danilkiewicz and sophomore phenom Brett Mydske alongside the dependable 6-3 Mike Grimes. New Westminster finished up the regular season losing three games and tying just one in its final four league games before winning its fourth title in five years. But while the Salmonbellies eliminated the Maple Ridge Burrards in five games, New Westminster looked far from the juggernaut it has been in recent years. Jordan Hall has seen the floor just four times this year for the ‘Bellies,

while the Gajic brothers, captain Nenad and Ilija, have been nursing injuries. “We’re just going to do what the coaches say, play hard and if we do that, we’re going to be fine. We’re going to be successful,” said righthander Jordan McBride, who shares the team’s playoff goal-scoring lead with Cliff Smith, both with eight goals. But how much of that disappointing 2009 Mann Cup memory of Game 7 still lingers in the minds of the Salmonbellies who were there, may play a factor in the outcome of the B.C. series. “This is the time of year we want to get better,” McBride said. “We have to give it all we got, and if we do that, we’ll meet our goal.” That goal, not surprisingly, is a Mann Cup. The B.C. final begin at Queen’s Park Arena tonight (Wednesday), beginning at 7:45 p.m.
