◗ PROTEST CONTINUES

Chain’s off, but he’s still fasting BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER brichter@royalcityrecord.com

After six nights in the cold and without food, New Westminster activist Paul Mulangu says he’s dizzy but determined. No longer physically chained to the door, Mulangu is still camping out in front of the Centre of Integration for African Immigrants to protest the provincial government cutting off funding for the non-profit’s jobs program, and the landlord changing the lock and terminating the lease. “Yesterday, I started getting dizzy and I started losing balance,” he said Tuesday morning, appearing to be in good spirits. “It is very painful, but I just program my mind and make it OK. If I achieve something, all of us are going to achieve.” Mulangu said he will decide Wednesday if he will continue his protest for a full 10 days until Saturday.

Still going: It’s been about one week since activist Paul Mulangu has eaten a meal or slept in a bed, but he says his protest against the province cutting off funding for the Centre of Integration for African Immigrants and the landlord changing the locks is worth it. The centre is almost $40,000 behind in rent.

Four-way race emerges for mayor’s seat Vance McFadyen and Francois Nantel fill the ballot BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Although the race for the mayor’s chair in New Westminster appeared to be a two-way race between incumbent Wayne Wright and longtime resident James Crosty, two more Royal City residents stepped up to the plate on the final day to file paperwork. Vance McFadyen and Francois Nantel are also planning to run for mayor. McFadyen is a longtime New Westminster

force to the mayor’s race. “I don’t believe James Crosty is a positive candidate. He is a nice guy, but I don’t believe he is a positive candidate. There has been too much name calling back and forth,” he said. “I think people deserve another alternative.” McFadyen said the two biggest clinchers that made him decide to seek the mayor’s seat relate to the city’s sale of the Burr Theatre and the “lifestyle” issue that was raised early in the mayor’s race. He was part of a group that proposed a community theatre for the Burr, which the city eventually sold to Lafflines Comedy Club. “We felt our plans for the Burr were much more in tune with what the commu-

resident and a nominee for the city’s 2010 Citizen of the Year, and Nantel has lived in the city for more than a decade and has run in two federal elections. “I think I would be a great mayor. I am a good communicator, a good listener. I speak well. I feel things – more from a human point of view,” McFadyen said. “I am a different kind of candidate. I am an ordinary guy that has strong beliefs (about) families, morals, equal rights.” McFadyen said Wright is more of a “corporate-minded person” which isn’t bad, but he agrees with Crosty that more emphasis needs to be placed on the “little things” such as neighbourhood infrastructure. He believes he will bring a positive

It did not fulfill what the vision for the Burr really was.” McFadyen said many community members supported using the Burr for a 500- to 600-seat theatre that offered programming for children, opportunities for community involvement and a full season of plays. McFadyen, who was the driving force behind New Westminster holding Pride Week in 2010 and 2011, was also concerned about Wright’s comments about Crosty’s lifestyle. When interviewed after Crosty had announced his intention of running for ◗Mayor Page 10

Woodlands: The good and the bad TIMELINE

City man reunites with long-lost friend from Woodlands School BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

R

ichard McDonald recently had the joy of being reunited with a long lost friend from his days as a student at Woodlands School. While he was thrilled to see his old friend, the New Westminster resident is hoping he’ll be able to put some bad memories to rest when the Centre Block tower at the Woodlands site is demolished on Oct. 18. “I lived in Woodlands from ‘52 to 62,” he said. “I seen a lot of abuse there. I seen people put into real hot water and cold water. I seen a lot of stuff.” McDonald, 68, said residents couldn’t say anything about what they’d seen or they’d be put punished. “It was very hard,” he said about staying silent. “It (abuse) was quite frequent those years that I was there.” McDonald went to Woodlands in 1952 when he was nine years old. He said has parents had no idea of what they were getting him into by sending him to Woodlands. “They came and visited me on the weekends,” he recalled. “They would take me home on the weekends and take me back on Sunday nights.” In 1962, McDonald and some otherWoodlandsstudentsmovedto Tranquille Institution in Kamloops. He lived there until 1970. Although McDonald has bad memories of his time at Woodlands, he has fond memories of his friend and classmate, Dorothy. “She was up in Tranquille the same years I was,” he added. “We were very good friends.” When they had to leave Tranquille in 1970, Dorothy moved to Invermere and McDonald moved to Powell River to be closer to his family. “I lost contact with her for 41 years,” he said. “We got back together again. She saw me on Facebook.” McDonald recently flew to Invermere and visited Dorothy for several days in September. “It was incredible. We had a fantastic time,” he said. “It was like no time had passed.” During their five-day visit, the friends went to a staff appreciation dinner at the home where

Memories: Richard McDonald lived at Woodlands from the time he was nine until he was 19. He has been part of the We Survived Woodlands group. Dorothy now lives, out for dinner, to a fall fair and scarecrow festival and to Radium Hot Springs. McDonald was also able to visit with six other people who had lived at Woodlands during his time there. “She (Dorothy) called that place a jail,” he said of their discussions about Woodlands. “The others are happy to be out of there, too.” McDonald lived in Powell River from 1970 to 2002, eventually moving to Vancouver because he was coming here so often for various meetings he was attending. He is active in a number of advocacy groups including the We Survived Woodlands and the B.C. Association for Community

Living. McDonald is ecstatic that the Centre Block tower will soon be demolished and has been part of a task force that’s planning the event. “It’s about time,” he said. “Everybody needs closure. That will definitely give us closure. I want it gone. It’s still there – it still reminds me of the institution.” A visit to the cemetery at the Woodlands site inspired McDonald to become active in advocacy organizations involved with former residents. “I saw some of the headstones along the ravine. They were cemented together. I was appalled,” he said. “Some of the staff would take

the headstones and use them for a barbecue. They would put stones down for driveways at home and everything. I was appalled.” McDonald was part of a From the Inside/OUT!, a multimedia art show that told the stories of almost 30 former residents of B.C.’s large institutions. McDonald is a member of the We Survived Woodlands School Group that formed in 2002 to fight for justice and compensation for the abuse suffered by former residents. The provincial government agreed to a compensation package for Woodlands residents who lived there after Aug. 1, 1974 but not those who had lived there earlier.

◆ The institution opened in May 1878 as the Provincial Asylum for the Insane and housed anyone with a mental illness. Its name was changed to the Public Hospital for the Insane in 1897. ◆ At the turn of the century, its capacity was 310 people. ◆ In the 1930s the focus changed to housing people with developmental disabilities. ◆ Renamed Woodlands School in 1950 in recognition of its emphasis on education and rehabilitation. Woodlands School housed more than 1,400 residents in 1959, according to the We Survived Woodlands website. ◆ Woodlands School’s population declined through the 1970s and 1980s because of a move towards deinstitutionalization. ◆ Woodlands School closed in 1996. ◆ British Columbia Buildings Corporation consulted with the community and developed a master plan for the site, which documented all aspects of the development including trees to be saved, amenities to be provided, type of housing to be built and the order in which the various parcels of land would be developed. ◆ In 2003, the British Columbia Buildings Corporation sold 51.4 acres of the Woodlands site to the Onni Group for $18 million. ◆ The first residents moved into the Victoria Hill development in 2007. ◆ Several of the Woodlands buildings have been retained at Victoria Hill: the Nurses Lodge is now a condo complex; the Boiler House is now an amenity space for the project and the recipient of a Heritage B.C. award; the Carpentry Shop is an amenity space that is rented out for meetings and other functions that can use a large room. ◆ While the city and the developer explored potential uses for the Centre Block, which dated back to 1879 and 1889, fires destroyed much of the building in July 2008. Only the tower survived. ◆ Oct. 18, 2011 – the Centre Block tower is demolished. – Compiled by Theresa McManus

Police seek suspects in IGA robbery

New Westminster police responded to a robbery in Columbia Square Sunday night, but the suspects are still at large. According to Sgt. Gary Weishaar, police responded to the Marketplace IGA around 8:30 p.m. after a report of a robbery in progress. Two men in their early 20s had entered the store, one of whom claimed he was armed with a firearm and demanded money from the cashier. The suspects fled the scene before police arrived. A police search of the area turned up nothing. No one was hurt in the incident, Weishaar said. Police say they now need the public’s

help in finding the two suspects. The first is described as Caucasian, about 5-9, weighing about 170 pounds. He has an olive complexion and partial beard. He was last seen wearing a black baseball cap, black jacket and blue jeans. The second suspect is Caucasian, about 5-10, 160 pounds and was seen wearing a red jacket, white baseball cap and blue jeans. Anyone with information about the case or the suspects is asked to contact the New Westminster Police Service at 604525-5411. www.twitter.com/BrentRichter

Development going ahead Construction of a presentation centre for a Sixth Street development was temporarily halted but is now proceeding. Frank Durante, the city’s manager of building inspections, said a sales centre is being constructed at 258 Sixth St. for a new condo development. Construction was halted because building started without a permit. “It was a hiccup,” Durante said. “The want to get going as fast as they can. They jumped the gun.”

The highrise will include 11 live-work units and 64 residential units. According to Durante, the presentation centre will remain in place until its developer achieves a certain number of pre-sales. At that time, it will come down and a sales centre will open elsewhere. Durante confirmed that the city had placed a stopwork order on the presentation centre, but the order has since been removed, and the building permit has

been issued. Durante said the next step will be for the developer will be to get a permit for the interior of the presentation centre. At that time, city staff will go back to the site and check that everything is fine. City council last dealt with the project in 2008, when it rezoned the site to accommodate the live-work units. The site already had zoning in place for a highrise. –Theresa McManus

Their efforts have been successful, to a degree: As of right now, some former patients – those who were there after a particular date – qualify for compensation. The rest do not. Yesterday, as this paper was going to print, the Block tower – the last remaining part of the Woodlands building – was demolished. It would be wonderful if, as the tower is destroyed, so too are some of the memories that survivors still struggle

with. But that’s unlikely. Most, if not all, will face the struggle for the rest of their lives. We applaud the decision to move ahead with the tower demolition, but we can’t help but continue to wonder why the suffering of some deserves recognition, while the suffering of others does not? The symbol of the horror may be gone, but its impact continues. It’s time to give back the voices of all Woodlands victims and ensure compensation for all who suffered silently.

IN MY OPINION

Woodlands survivor: Thank you

Dear Editor:

My name is Carol Picton (maiden name: Wood) and I lived in Woodlands Institute (center block) in New Westminster. My friend Sandy is helping me write this, because I am still very nervous and afraid of the public world, even though I remember not being scared of the world before my placement into Woodlands Institution. I stay inside my home where I feel safe, I only go outside after my husband coaxes me, maybe two to three times a month and only for very short periods. I am afraid to speak much about the scary things I lived with and deal with the tortured memories still today. The painful screams and cries while hearing someone being slapped and beaten were routine

sounds inside. Freezing cold water baths that many of us, including men, had to share the same tub water, over and over even when the water turned a pinky red color … being hungry … yelled at … called names: idiot, retard. This was my life while living beyond the Woodlands walls. I am writing this before the demolition of the Woodlands Centre Block tower; the building I survived in will finally be gone this Tuesday. I am writing my personal thank you and warm appreciation to Mayor Wayne Wright’s goal to support me and the other survivors, by pushing to have the tower gone. I think you have a very warm heart and really care about us. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I would hug you if I could, for truly helping us heal, mayor. Carol Picton, New Westminster

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Atkinson gets thumbs up Dear Editor:

I read the letter written to The Record by David Brett (Kudos to business company, Oct. 7) about the school district business company with great interest. Partly because so far there has been no official comment from the school trustees regarding their recent meeting with the province’s auditor general and partly because Mr. Brett seems largely unaware of the troubled history of the business company. A few years ago, I sat on the school district’s finance and administration committee, both before and just after Brent Atkinson took over the reins of the business company after several years of last-minute crisis operating deficits. Brent Atkinson and I long ago agreed to disagree when necessary about financial matters, but we often found common ground as well. One particular night at a finance and administration committee meeting a couple of years ago, following ongoing financial problems with the business company that were negatively impacting the school district budget, there had been very heated discussion about the business company. The community representatives on the committee, of which I was one of three, wanted to see greater separation between the business company and the school district, with more clearly defined boundaries, fewer grey areas, and more transparent financial reporting. After the meeting, Brent and I had a conversation about the future of the business

company and its troubled past. As Brent said to me at that time: “Sanda, I’ve just barely got this tiger by the tail.” Brent asked me to please have some patience with him while he educated the parties involved about how to run a business and how to get the business company on track. He also said that it was going to be an uphill battle, and it clearly was. For several years, I watched as Brent wrestled the tiger to the ground and rebuilt the troubled business company into a valid business entity. Knowing Brent, I knew that he could get things on track but that it would require his constant attention and jettisoning some money-losing propositions. I believe that Brent has done a good job getting the business company on track, and I believe that this may be part of what the auditor general of this province told the school trustees. I also suspect that the auditor general has told the school trustees, just as the community representatives on the finance and administration committee did several years ago, that there needs to be clear separation between the business company and the school district. This appears to be the part that some board members may be resisting. But I am only speculating. I am very thankful that Brent is still going to be the CEO of the business company. Maybe after this civic election there will actually be more separation between the business company and the school district and a clearer financial picture of how the business company is either impacting the school district for the worse or the better.

Occupy: Generation faces challenges ◗ continued from page 6

Given that lack of focus and given the fact this country is not teetering on the edge of collapse (as some European countries appear to be), where does this movement go from here? The Vancouver protesters say they’ll maintain that small tent city on the front lawn of the art gallery “as long as it takes.” We’ll see. But there’s one caveat to all the skepticism directed at the Occupy movement in this country: the role of young people in the protests. The current social economic reality is skewed for younger folks. Since the 1930s, there has been an almost constant progression that each generation is better off than the one before, but I’m not so sure that trend will continue.

The baby boomers’ children – those younger than 30 – may be the first generation in a long time who face fewer traditional opportunities for success than their parents. Most young people have trouble finding jobs, or at least meaningful employment beyond minimum-wage entry positions. University tuition is prohibitively expensive for many. So if the Occupy movement succeeds beyond its initial modest success, it will be because the younger generation seizes the lead and finds a way to effectively force change. But they will first have to articulate what specific change they think is required, and offer concrete solutions for reaching those goals. Chanting protests can only take you so far. And the real push will

have to come from the U.S., where the Occupy movement physically was born. Canada is simply too small a place, and a much too comfortable place for it to offer anything more than tepid support for such change. In the meantime, as Occupy organizers insist they’re happy with the numbers attending their protest, there’s another number that may speak more about where people are at right now: Apple says it sold more than four million of its new iPhone 4S in its first three days on the market (which coincided with the Occupy rallies). Now, that’s an example of a lot of people being occupied!

Protest: Council hopeful taking time out for all-candidates meeting ◗ continued from page 1

The province informed Mulangu a year ago that it would be cutting funding in January, citing duplication of services in the area and performance issues under the contract. To help make rent, Mulangu began renting the space for African weddings, funerals and dances, though neighbours said that resulted in loud, all-night parties and visits from the police. Mulangu declared a bid for New Westminster city council last week and has now started collecting signatures for a petition asking all levels of government to “save the Centre of Immigration.” Since Tuesday afternoon, Mulangu’s petition has garnered 60 names, some from the centre’s users and the New Westminster African community, some from passersby and some from the neighbouring condo where several noise complaints against the centre have originated. Since the government cut funding in January, the centre has fallen almost $40,000 behind in rent. In 2010, the centre received a $278,000 federal stimulus grant, and Mulangu took out a matching loan to pay for upgrades to the centre including a kitchen, showers and washrooms, a meeting room and a gym. Mulangu said he will be on the hook for the loan if he cannot secure more funding for the centre. The landlord has

said Mulangu’s renovations will likely not work for new tenants and will have to come out, though Mulangu rejects that, saying the building sat vacant for years before he put the improvements in. “Meanwhile I’m going to be bankrupt. I’m a single dad with two kids coming from Africa to say Canada is a land of opportunity, and I become bankrupt,” he said. Mulangu said if his protest fails, his last idea is to hold one more protest at the centre on Oct. 26 – the date the landlord says he must have the centre’s belongings removed by. “I’m going to call people to come en masse to protest about that,” he said. Oddly enough, Mulangu said his sit-in protest has given him a chance to peacefully observe and reflect, while sitting outside surviving only on water and tea that supporters have brought for him. “I’ve never felt so free as the time I’ve spent sitting here. I discover so much. I learn so much. For eight years, I’ve never had a vacation. It’s always go, go, go, solving problems. This is the first time I’ve ever just sat and watched,” he said. Mulangu was preparing to leave his post temporarily on Tuesday night to attend an all-candidates meeting in Queensborough, though he said he plans to return. www.twitter.com/BrentRichter

Here’s who’s running ON THE TRAIL

THERESA MCMANUS

T

hirty-four candidates will be vying for the 14 positions on New Westminster city council and school board in the 2011 civic election. Three candidates are hoping to topple incumbent mayor Wayne Wright from the position he’s held since 2002. Longtime residents James Crosty and Vance McFadyen are also running for mayor, as is resident Francois Nantel. All of the incumbents, a couple of former councillors, some previous candidates and a few new faces are in the mix for city council. This year’s 18 candidates are: John Ashdown (Voice New Westminster), James Bell, Jonathan Cote (incumbent), Cal Donnelly, Bill Harper (incumbent), Vladimir Krasnogor, Chelsea Lawrence, Gerry Liu, Jaimie McEvoy (incumbent), Betty McIntosh (incumbent), Paul Mulangu, David Noshad, Bob Osterman

(incumbent), Gavin Palmer (Voice New Westminster), Chuck Puchmayr, Harp Sihota, Susan Wandell and Lorrie Williams. Twelve candidates will be vying for the seven seats on the New Westminster school board. A couple of vacancies will open up as incumbents Brent Atkinson and Lori Watt will not be seeking reelection. This year’s candidates for school board are: James Bell, Jonina Campbell, Casey Cook (Voice New Westminster), Michael Ewen, Jim Goring (Voice New Westminster), Lisa Graham (Voice New Westminster), James Janzen, Brenda McEachern-Keen (Voice New Westminster), MaryAnn Mortensen (Voice New Westminster), James Pepa, David Phelan and Glen Richmond. The 2011 municipal election is on Saturday, Nov. 19. Incidentally, James Bell isn’t the first candidate to run for both city council and school board. Recent records indicate that Phillip Shaughnessy ran for both spots in 2005.

A local youth has inspired mayoral candidate James Crosty to reach out

to younger residents during the 2011 civic election campaign. A press release from the Crosty campaign states that its new Adopt-A-Voter program was inspired by firsttime voter Henry Beasley, an 18-year-old resident who’s interested in the municipal political scene in New Westminster. “I talk with my friends on Facebook, and we often discuss topics that are important to us. While we are free to discuss problems and come up with solutions, we are not free to vote and bring forward these solutions,” he said in the press release. “The Adopt-A-Voter program created by mayoral candidate James Crosty gives us a way to have our voices heard during the election.” The program targets youth under 18 years and suggest they “adopt” a resident who’s eligible to vote, discuss their opinions with their adopted voter, recommend which candidates support their views, and convince them to get involved and remind them to get out and vote on Election Day. According to Crosty, about 21 per cent of eligible voters voted in the 2008 civic election.

In a follow-up interview, Wright explained his comments, stating that the two men are at different points in their lives, as he’s a grandfather who’s already gone through business and is in a different mode of his life than the younger Crosty. McFadyen met with Wright soon after reading the comments but wasn’t convinced with his explanation. “What he was really saying is, ‘James Crosty is gay.’ That is the different lifestyle,” he said. “I was very hurt. I was quite shocked. Again, I don’t hold any serious grudge.” McFadyen said Crosty and Wright are both “nice guys” who have the city’s interests at heart. “The mayor and council overall have done a good

He ran as an independent in the 1998 federal by-election in Port Moody-Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam and as a Green Party candidate in New Westminster in the 2000 federal election. Although Nantel is interested in addressing local issues such as transportation, he’s also hoping to use the mayor’s position as a springboard to other political opportunities. “It’s a stepping stone,” he said. “I am not going to go one year, then go off.

Artists pay tribute to veterans BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Remembering: Vernon Hanson has his portrait sketched by Richard Armstrong

Tracey Specializes in selling New Westminster Homes!

Some New Westminster veterans will be immortalized by members of the New Westminster Heritage Life Drawing Society. Local artists gathered at the New Westminster branch of the Royal Canadian Legion on Sunday to draw two veterans who had agreed to pose for portraits. “They sat for about two hours for us, which was really great,” said Gillian Wright, a member of the New Westminster Heritage Life Drawing Society. “It was fantastic, it was just marvellous.” Former New Westminster MLA and city councillor Chuck Puchmayr, who has dabbled in drawing cartoons for a number of years, proposed the project. “When I was on council we talked about recording and documenting the lives of some of our veterans,” he recalled. “When I was in Austria, in my village, there was a memorial for the

missing soldier. When I looked at it, it was so awe-inspiring.” Inspired to sketch that image on a recent visit to his hometown, Puchmayr also began thinking of veterans back home in New Westminster and thought it would be cool to sketch local veterans. “There are a lot of other veterans, it’s either too painful to talk about their past or they are too modest to talk about their past,” Puchmayr said. While attending the recent Artists on the River event, Puchmayr mentioned the idea to Wright. He contacted the local Legion and made arrangements for veterans to pose for portraits. “We thought it was a great opportunity to get out there,” Wright said. “Some of the artists are really keen on the kind of character you can get from an older face.” Because the members of the New Westminster Heritage Life Drawing Society usually draw models or each other, they relished the opportunity of drawing veterans. The artists and vet-

erans took it in stride when the power went out during Sunday’s session. “Somewhere around 4 p.m. the electricity went out. We had sat in the front of the Legion,” she said. “We could use the sunlight. It was shining in the window.” All eight artists who participated in Sunday’s portraits drew pencil or charcoal drawings. “It was a fantastic experience. The veterans were quite jovial,” Wright said. “They wore their uniforms. That was great. That gives a really nice touch to the portraits. They were excellent subjects to draw. We would like to do some more.” The New Westminster Heritage Life Drawing Society hopes to display the artwork at the Legion on Remembrance Day. “It was really fun,” Wright said. “They are so much fun to draw. They have such character in their faces.” Puchmayr attended the gathering and drew caricatures of the two veterans.

Film fest on this weekend

Students helping

THERESA MCMANUS

A

n eclectic mix of films is being presented as part of a documentary film festival taking place at Douglas College this week. New Westminster Environmental Partners and Green Ideas Network are presenting New West DocFest on Oct. 21 and 22. Organizers hope to educate and to create dialogue and change in our society by thinking globally and acting locally. An opening reception with entertainment and a screening of Burning Water takes place on Friday, starting at 6 p.m. The festival gets underway at noon on Saturday, with the day’s films to include Tapped, 65 Red Roses, Vanishing of the Bees and H2Oil. 65 Red Roses is an award-winning documentary based on the life of New Westminster resident Eva Markvoort, who lost her lifelong battle with cystic fibrosis in March 2010. New Westminster resident John Gibeau, who is the founder of the Honeybee Centre, will take part in a question and answer session following a screening of Vanishing of the Bees, and New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly will participate in a question and answer session after H2Oil is screened. For the complete festival schedule and ticket information, visit www. newwestdocfest.ca.

Students at Richard McBride Elementary School are doing their best to help out Honour House. Laura Swanson, chair of the school’s parent advisory councils, said the students at Richard McBride have done a penny drive for several years. “We have always used the funds to purchase items needed for the school or to do something special for the students,” she said in an email to The Record. “Last year we were inspired by Honour House here in New Westminster with their Penny in a Pot campaign.” The parent advisory council agreed to donate half of the money raised for the penny drive to Honour House.

Christmas sale

The folks at St. Barnabas Thrift Store have been gathering items all year long for its annual Christmas sale and are now preparing for the big day. Michele Moret, who manages the thrift store, said people will be able to find a wide variety of Christmas items, including decorations, lights, ornaments, trees, linens, kitchen items, gift wrap, clothes, dishes and more. The sale is being held on Saturday, Nov. 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The store will be selling coffee and hot chocolate. The volunteer-run thrift store raises funds in support of programs offered at St. Barnabas Church, including a community lunch each Thursday, an emergency food cupboard on Fridays and a Christmas Day dinner.

Haunted history

What better place for the ghosts of yesteryear to make their presence known than at Burnaby Village Museum? But ghosts aren’t the only otherworldly pres-

ence about to take over the heritage site off Canada Way: Vampires, witches, monsters and ghoulish grave diggers are all gearing up for the annual Haunted Village event, running Oct. 28, 29 and 30 from 6 to 9 p.m. nightly. The event includes a Vampire Ball on Main Street, coffin shopping, a Voodoo Café, a circus sideshow, and ghostly moans from the cemetery, to name just a few. There is also a chance for children to trick-ortreat in their costumes. Tickets are $14 for adults, youth and sen-

iors; and $9 for children aged two to 12. Entrance includes trick-or-treating for children and unlimited carousel rides. On Oct. 29, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the museum will also host the Haunted Carousel Carnival, a daytime program aimed at younger children and families looking for a Halloween celebration without too much “fright factor.” There will be carnival games, Halloween crafts and carnival rides. Entrance at that time will be $6.50 for non-members ◗Fun Page 14

The rabbit hole

The Canada Games Pool will take on an Alice in Wonderland theme for a swim night on Oct. 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Regular admission rates apply.

College enrolment hits a new high

BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER brichter@royalcityrecord.com

The number of people signing up for classes at Douglas College in New Westminster is going up and up, as the post-secondary school has hit a new enrolment record for the second year in a row. Between the two campuses in New West and Coquitlam, 10,700 students have enrolled for 2011 – a five per cent increase from last year and 12 per cent higher than 2009. More than half of Douglas students attend the New Westminster campus on Royal Avenue. College president Scott McAlpine said the growth is due, in part, to word of mouth in the academic and professional world about the school’s quality curriculum and teachers. “Douglas’s reputation as an excellent place to get a post-secondary education is growing,” he said in a press release. “More people are choosing Douglas based on the strength of our academic and career-based programs, and the quality of our teaching.” Part-time enrolments are up 17 per cent since 2009 – a trend McAlpine attributes to the changing needs of the labour market. “An increasing number of people are returning to school to upgrade their skills and knowledge,” McAlpine said. “The rise in part-time students is indicative of our changing world, in which second career learners – many of whom have work and

NO LI W

VE !

family commitments – are looking for flexibility in their education.” And it’s not just those looking to keep up with industry trends, said Dave Taylor, the college’s communications director – a slow to stagnant economy also means some people have to start fresh with their education. “Enrolment is up (at post-secondary schools) in general, and that’s part of an ongoing trend when the economy is flat like it is right now,” he said. “People usually take that as a good time to regroup and take a look at where they’re going with their careers and get the upgrades and training they need.” Taylor said interest in Douglas’ healthcare programs, especially nursing, is at an all-time high as it is one of the few professions expected to grow. “Our flagships programs are always super popular. Our nursing program is always oversubscribed. The vast majority of people who apply to the program don’t get in, and that’s just because it is a very good program and there is a lot of need for more nurses” he said. Increasing numbers of international students are also coming to Douglas, including 1,000 who have signed up this year. The college has been seeking to increase the number of international students in recent years and was given an award for internationalization in June. The number of students from abroad has doubled since 2007. www.twitter.com/BrentRichter

Football frenzy on local fields

BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

The numbers from 27 hours of football in Burnaby and New Westminster are staggering. Four games, 339 points, the No. 1 high school team in the province, a high school team reeling from its worst loss ever, first NCAA conference win for Simon Fraser University, and three hours and five minutes for a seemingly low-profile high school football game. The storylines were many on Oct. 7 and 8, and where the story ended up is what makes sports so captivating: the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat and the emotions of players competing to the best of their abilities. The Moscrop Panthers dropped a triple overtime 60-57 Tier II high school football game to Frank Hurt of Surrey on Oct. 7, in a game where only family and friends were present. Less than an hour after that game ended, the number-1-ranked high school team in the province, the St. Thomas More Knights, was playing the number 2 team, W.J. Mouat of Abbotsford in a nail-biting game that went to the final minute, with the Knights prevailing 25-20. Taking place at almost exactly the same time, at a rocking Mercer Stadium in New Westminster, the Hyacks beat Carson Graham 33-26. Sixteen hours later, at Fox Field at Simon Fraser University, the SFU Clan kicked off against Dixie State in yet another attempt to get their first Great Northwest Athletic Conference win in two seasons. More than three-and-a-half hours later, the Clan got that win, 62-56 in triple overtime. The Record talked to many of the people involved in this momentous night in local football. Here’s the story of four great football games.

Moscrop vs. Frank Hurt

“I’m still pretty bitter about the loss,” said Moscrop head coach Craig Bymoen three days afterwards. The Panthers rolled up more than 500 yards in offence and even held a fourtouchdown lead at one point after running back the opening kickoff of the second half

Mouat’s Taylor Hinton on Oct. 7 at Burnaby Lake-West.The STM Knights prevailed over B.C.’s number 2 team, 25-20. for a touchdown. “Things started to go wrong after that,” said Bymoen. “We lost two key guys with rolled ankles, and then I had to put a lot of guys into different positions.” Panthers’ starting quarterback Jesse Johnston would finish 18-for-32 for 292

yards and three touchdowns in the air, adding five carries for 43 yards and one TD rushing. “Jesse’s really matured as a player and as a leader,” said Bymoen. “I am extremely pleased with his play this year. He’s a student of the game, and he’s showing a lot

of mental and physical maturity. This is a kid who was injured the last two seasons with a broken arm, and it’s great to see him coming back like this.” Bymoen also had kind word for his talented slot receiver Marcus Perrin, who had ◗Football Page 20

Injuries plague football Hyacks in 41-0 loss BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

Just when Farhan Lalji thought things couldn’t get worse, they did Saturday at O’Hagan Field in Vancouver. The scoreboard may have said 41-0 for Vancouver College over Lalji’s New Westminster Hyacks, but the bigger number is 11 injured Hyacks, including eight starters. Jordan Chin, arguably the Hyacks’ most valuable defender, got hurt in the second quarter with an ankle injury that Lalji said “isn’t broken, but it’s not good.” Jonathan He, one of the Hyacks’ best lineman, also got hurt during practice earlier in the week, and running back Aldrin Asunction, who ran for more than 200 yards last week, was out with a concussion.

Add in starting quarterback Regan Eberding continuing to be on the sidelines, backup running back Pavan Mrock missing the last two games and receiver Jonathan Lopez only being able to play defence with a cast on his hand, and you have a team that should be holding its team meetings in a hospital ward. Lalji said the Fighting Irish deserved full credit for their Saturday afternoon win under brilliant sunny skies. “They’re the best team we’ve played since California,” Lalji said, referencing the squad’s preseason warm-up in Southern California. “I don’t want to make any excuses for our loss. It would be naïve to say injuries haven’t played a part in this. “We thought our strength was in our depth, but when you start

the season with 13 linemen and now we only have seven healthy linemen, that’s tough.” With all the injuries, Lalji had to insert more Grade 10 starters into his squad than he would have liked. But it wasn’t those players Lalji wants more from. “We’ve got seniors that have to step up,” he said. “I’m not saying we quit, but once we got down, I would have liked to have seen our guys continue working hard so that they (Vancouver College) earned their points. “We’re just kind of hanging on right now. The guys on the field, we need a little more out of them, and we just have to find a way to get healthy.” Matt Alviz and Liam Mahara each rushed for a pair of scores for the Fighting Irish, as the Vancouver Catholic school led 14-0 after the

first quarter and 28-0 at the half, adding two more touchdowns in the third quarter to round out the scoring. Alviz finished his day with nine carries for 108 yards, rushing for a 13-yard major in the opening quarter, then adding a 70-yard touchdown on the Irish’s first play from scrimmage in the second half. Mahara scored on runs of five and 16 yards, part of his 40-yard rushing day. Jesse Cervas carried six times for 90 yards. Irish quarterback Hunter Robinson was 6-of-7 for 131 yards and touchdown passes of 30 yards to Justin Sanvido and 43 yards to Daniel Laventure. The Hyacks now come home to host the Notre Dame Jugglers on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at Mercer Stadium.

“It doesn’t get any easier,” said Lalji. “We’re going to have to defend a few more people because with Notre Dame this year, they’re taking advantage of more people, and they’re a physical team with a lot of good athletes.” The next night, the Hyacks will host their eighth annual Hyack Football Tailgate Auction at the La Perla Ballroom at Westminster Quay. The event will feature a WestJet trip for two in the Hyack football raffle, a wine auction and silent and live auctions items. Advance ticket sales are $65 per person or $450 for a table of eight.

Football: Four action-packed games ◗ continued from page 19

six catches for 109 yards and one touchdown while wideouts Parm Bhullar and Mohammed Indakem combined for four catches, 130 yards and one touchdown. The game, which lasted more than three hours, starting at 3 p.m. and going right until 6:05 p.m. meant that St. Thomas More and W.J. Mouat had little time for pre-game festivities before their 7 p.m. game.

STM vs. Mouat

The number-2 ranked Hawks from Abbotsford came out with visions of number 1 in their minds. The teams traded touchdowns before STM took the lead in the second quarter when Kyle Madden, a New Westminster resident, showed his all-world skills on defence. Tackling Devin Logan for a four-yard loss, Madden then snuck back into coverage on the next play, fooling Mouat quarterback Daniel Markin into throwing a pick that Madden returned to the Hawks’ 26-yard-line. On the next play, Carney scrambled in for the goahead touchdown. An interested observer of the high school clash between number 1 and number 2 was Simon Fraser University head football coach Dave Johnson. “I saw a lot of good athletes making big plays both offensively and defensively,” said Johnson. “The pick, that really impressed me,” said Johnson. “Kyle’s a very good athlete, and on that play, and the play before, he showed me a lot.” After Mouat took a 20-19 lead with three minutes left, Madden’s 60-yard reception set up the Knights winning touchdown with 1:58 left in the game. “We have a midnight rule,” said Knights head coach Bernie Kully. “Celebrate this victory until midnight, and then we start concentrating on next week’s game. … We’ll have a Monday run and film work.”

NWSS vs. Carson Graham

Only 10 minutes down the road, Mercer Stadium was rocking on the night of Oct. 7.

Jason Payne/PNG

Winning run: Simon Fraser’s Bo Palmer is tackled by Dixie State’s Jake Duncan on Oct. 8. Palmer scored the winning TD as SFU won its first ever GNAC game 6256 in triple overtime. One week after an embarrassing 62-14 home loss, the New Westminster Hyacks rebounded with a 33-26 win over the Carson Graham Eagles. Hyacks head coach Farhan Lalji was so frustrated with the previous week’s effort that he tested his players physically and mentally. Not only was the 62-14 score kept on the scoreboard all week, the Hyacks had to practise on the grass and mud field instead of on the artificial turf at Mercer. “The coaches said we had to earn the right to play at Mercer again,” said Grade 10 quarterback Tommy Robertson. “And looking up at that 62, that wasn’t much fun.”

SFU Clan vs. Red Storm

For the 450 people in attendance – Kyle Madden included – at Fox Field on Saturday, Oct. 8 at 2 p.m., there was little reason to believe the hometown Clan would get their first GNAC victory. But the teams combined for 1,034 offensive yards, 61 first downs and 118 points before the Clan could celebrate a 62-56 triple overtime victory. Leading the charge for

do you have the best

the Clan was running back Bo Palmer, who had 238 yards and two TDs. His running mate, Burnaby native and former Notre Dame star Steve Spagnuolo, contributed his first NCAA touchdown and 43 rushing yards. “We desperately needed this win,” said Johnson. “Our kids outplayed their kids, and that is maybe the most satisfying thing.” Johnson said that while his players had moral victories in the past, a real victory was needed. “We can build on this,” he said. “I think this victory is something that we can build on. … Now that these guys know what it feels like to get a win, I think we’re going to get addicted to this feeling,” said Johnson. With the SFU game ending at 5:32 p.m., just a little more than 26.5 hours after Moscrop kicked off its Tier 2 game, a thrilling schedule of local football games came to a close. Johnson gets the last word: “Football in B.C. is so good right now. Coaches are doing such a good job and the culture has really changed. “The quality of our athletes has never been better, and the quality of the football shows it. … I’m proud to be a part of it.”

◗ SPORTS IN BRIEF

Girls’ soccer squad posts two more wins BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER alau@royalcityrecord.com

The Royal City u-15 Barcelona girls soccer team continued their winning ways with a couple of recent victories. On Oct. 2, NW Barcelona beat the North Shore Renegades 2-1 at Mercer Stadium. The Royal City girls opened the scoring in the 15th minute with a marker from Carly Cody, but North Shore equalized in the 46th minute. The winning tally came from Ally Fabian two minutes later, on an assist from Cody. The New Westminster goals played with two silver call-ups, Piper Scott-Fiddler Alyssa Husband, and were down to 10 players after midfielder Rachel Hutchinson got injured. The win comes a week after NW Barcelona beat the Burnaby Girls Blizzard 2-1. New Westminster got goals from Celeste Bain, on a nifty pass from Montana Wegner and Cody, who scored the winner with less than two minutes left in the game.

Mixed results for Hyacks

In Royal City Hyacks community football action, it was a case of the good, bad and the ugly for games played on Oct. 9 at Ryall Park in Queensborough. On the good side, the junior bantam Royal City Hyacks stayed undefeated after a 46-6 beating of the North Surrey Falcons. Also on the good side was the five-toseven-year-old flag football team earning a 12-8 victory over the Coquitlam Packers. On the bad side of the ledger, the Hyacks atom orange team suffered a heartbreaking

38-37 loss to the Vancouver Trojans that went down to the last play. The Hyacks scored a touchdown to bring them to within one point, but the nine-yearolds were unable to punch in their convert attempt to tie the game. Also bad was a slow start by the atom black Hyacks, who lost 20-14 to the Cloverdale Lions after being down 14-0 in the first quarter. Offensively, running back Reggie Waters led the way for the Hyacks, scoring both New Westminster touchdowns, including one on a kickoff return. On the slightly ugly side was a 6-6 tie the peewees had against the Cloverdale Bobcats. The 10- and 11-year-old Hyacks and the Bobcats, coached by B.C. Lions receiver Geroy Simon, played a scoreless first half before Kinsale Philip scored the Hyacks only touchdown early in the second half. The Hyacks couldn’t hold off the Bobcats, as the Surrey team tied the score. Neither team could get the winning points, but it was a moral victory for the Hyacks because they became the first team to deny Cloverdale a victory this season.

Badminton players tops

Melody Liang and partner Jon Vandervet of the Shuttlesport/Douglas College Badminton Academy won the B.C. Open held during the Thanksgiving weekend at the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club. Liang and Vandervet beat number-1 seeds and number-19 world ranked Toby Ng and Grace Gao in three games. Coach Al Mawani said his team got better as the tournament went on.

Jason Lang/THE RECORD

Escape: Hyacks junior bantam player Jamie Shiho runs away from a North Surrey Falcon in a 46-6 win on Oct. 9 at Ryall Park in Queensborough. “This is the best this pair have played in the past six months,” said Mawani. “They both really supported each other.” In other results, RuiLin Huang, in her comeback from injury, had an excellent tournament as she defeated the number-2 seed, Phyllis Chan, in the semifinals before losing to the number-1 seed, Michelle Lee, in the final. “I feel with a couple more tournaments and few weeks of training, she will be much stronger and faster,” said Mawani.

Lacrosse team strikes gold The New Westminster u-10 field lacrosse team recently travelled to the Interior Fall Face Off Tournament in Vernon and won the gold medal by beating squads from Calgary, Edmonton and Kamloops. In the championship match, the Royal City squad came back to win in double overtime, 5-4 over Calgary. The team is coached by Rich Peterson, Brent Dhandwar and Rob Birosh.
