Eyes forward: New Westminster school trustee Casey Cook, at the New Westminster Secondary School ﬁeld, is looking forward to 2012 and shovels being in the ground at the old St. Mary’s site for a new elementary school. Cook also hopes for labour peace and teachers agreeing to a new deal with the province.
A look ahead at 2012
Will shovels be in the ground for the new school projects this coming year? BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Labour peace and a shovel in the ground. That’s what New Westminster school trustees hope will happen in 2012 as the school district embarks on what may be the most ambitious capital project in the province. “I’m very optimistic that we’ll be moving forward with the capital project,” said school trustee Casey Cook. “I’m really optimistic that by the middle or the end of summer,

we’ll have shovels in the ground for the new (elementary) school at the St. Mary’s site.” With the city and district agreeing to the land swaps that were necessary to move the project forward, the biggest remaining obstacle is for the Ministry of Education to approve a project agreement for the new schools. That announcement may come early in 2012. Cook said it’s taken quite some time to get to this point – a middle school and a replacement for the high school are the next phases of the project – but people shouldn’t worry about the past and should concentrate on the future. “Optimistically, I think it will be at least five years before we have the new high school,” he said, “but since all three schools are design-build, we’re hoping to cut down

on the time to build all three schools.” Design-build, in construction lingo, is a process where design and construction services are provided by a single contractor. Of more immediate concern to Cook is getting labour peace. While the Canadian Union of Public Employees quietly agreed to a two-year contract for school support workers that will take them to June 2012 – workers still need to ratify the agreement – teachers have been in a stalemate with the province. “We need to get labour peace,” said Cook. “When you look at the CUPE settlement, you see how creative both parties were at getting a deal done quietly.” Newly elected trustee Jonina Campbell is in an interesting position because her day ◗Schools Page 4

As we turn the calendar to 2012, it’s hard not to think about how bright the future for the Royal City will be in the new year. Hot on the heels of a year that saw new commercial developments in Sapperton and the downtown open to the public – and the arrival of both Thrifty’s and Safeway – along with a new artificial turf field at Queen’s Park, New Westminster seems poised to continue on a growth pattern that will give citizens more amenities and more reasons to stay close to home. “I believe the city’s poised for a good future, and we should see more of the same in 2012,” said former city councillor, current school trustee and current Western Lacrosse Association commissioner Casey Cook. “Growth will continue in the city, and the challenge will be to have the amenities to go with that growth.” Cook cited the new artificial turf field at Queen’s Park as an example of what can happen when the city takes an innovative approach to improving amenities. The Queen’s Park east field site was a well-used site that was overdue for improvements, and, in 2011, that field became a new artificial turf field. The project included excavation, field base construction, drainage, hard and soft landscaping (such as retaining walls, pathways and furnishings) and field lighting. “When I passed by the new field, I couldn’t help but think

that was a job well done,” said Cook. “It was creative thinking and a better use of the space. Now we have one of the best fields in the city. “I see a similar challenge with the Canada Games Pool, which I consider the flagship in our system. … It’s almost 50 years old, and I think we have to be creative in finding a way to upgrade that facility.” Also scheduled for completion in 2012 is an expansion to the Queensborough Community Centre, which will feature a police office, library facilities and child-care space. Back on the mainland, Westminster Pier Park is also scheduled to open, and further on down Columbia Street, a 10-screen Landmark Cinemas theatre at Plaza 88 is scheduled to open, marking the first time in years that the Royal City will have first-run movie theatres. “I’m looking forward to the movie theatres,” said Coun. Chuck Puchmayr, back on council after a stint as provincial MLA and a health scare. “I think Plaza 88 has been a really creative project that makes New Westminster even more attractive for young people to come live here. “New Westminster has really changed, and it has become a very desirable place for people to want to come and live.” Puchmayr said while it’s nice for large companies like Thrifty’s and Safeway to set up shop in New Westminster, what the city has to continue to do is make sure small businesses still have a place in the city. “Local stores are an important economic driver, and, long-term, we have to make sure they can continue to succeed,” he said. Also worrying to Puchmayr is the fact that by the end of 2012, the new tolled Port Mann Bridge is scheduled to open. “Traffic is always an issue in the city, and when the new Port Mann opens, there’s no doubt that people will drive out of their way to avoid the $3 toll. … I’m expecting traffic chaos when the Port Mann opens.” Puchmayr said the city has been forward-thinking when it comes to traffic, holding on to key pieces of land along the 10th Avenue corridor so that the city continues to have a voice when the province starts talking about more expansion, most notably along that 10th Avenue stretch as a connector to an expanded Pattullo Bridge. “We need to have a voice at the table,” said Puchmayr. “If New Westminster is going to get more traffic and more gridlock, we need to have a voice at the table.” New Westminster MLA Dawn Black agrees that traffic is an ongoing problem in the Royal City. “I think that it’s not going to get any better until we do something about increased rapid transit options,” said Black. “We really need to see major investment in public transit. … In the meantime, I expect we’ll see more traffic in the city.” Black, who announced in 2011 that she won’t be running again in the next provincial election – scheduled for May 2013 – is heading into her final calendar year as

MLA. “I want to make sure our riding association is in good shape,” she said, adding that she fully supports Judy Darcy, the NDP candidate nominated to run for New Westminster. Of more immediate concern is the March 24 federal NDP leadership convention, where Black is supporting Brian Topp as the successor to Jack Layton, who passed away last summer. “I came out early in support of Brian, and that’s because I worked closely with him during coalition talks with the Liberals. … I have a great deal of confidence in Brian and his humanity. I think he’ll make a great leader.” Also with a keen eye on the federal NDP leadership race is Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian, who, as national caucus chair of the NDP, must remain neutral. “We have eight strong candidates, and I’m impressed with all eight,” he said. “When we do get our new leader, then we can move forward with working on narrowing the income gap in the country. “I think we’re seeing in case after case, record levels of debt, 90,000 jobs lost in the fall of 2011 alone and overall income falling two per cent in real terms. … These are the red flags that the government should be seeing.” Julian said that the federal Conservatives, now armed with a majority government, must institute more moderate policies to
address the income and poverty gap that is the reality for most Canadians. On an entirely different note, Julian did go out on a limb and say he sees some sporting greatness for several local teams. “I believe the New Westminster Salmonbellies will go out East and win the Mann Cup,” he said. “And I think the Canucks will win the Stanley Cup, so that will mean we’ll have all three champions (to go with the B.C. Lions winning the Grey Cup in 2011).” Black also makes the prediction that the
’Bellies will win that elusive 25th Mann Cup, but Cook isn’t willing to go out on that limb. “It’s going to be really difficult,” said Cook. “I know how hard it is to go out there and win, so what I can say is our teams need to be creative. … Here in the WLA, our strength is we’re trying to have seven strong teams. Out East, they have a twotier league, and what they end up with is three teams that are just absolutely stacked. That’s what we’re competing against, so that’s why we have to be creative.”

job is as a teacher in Richmond, meaning she is a B.C. Teachers’ Federation member as well. She said the CUPE deal was interesting because it showed that a negotiated settlement is possible if both sides are willing to work at it. “All I can hope for is that in the new year, both sides can come together and reach a deal,” she said. CUPE’s deal includes: no concessions for CUPE members; $7.5 million in new, ongoing funding to recognize and correct unpaid work for education assistants from the government’s class organization fund; $550,000 in new funding for the support staff education and adjustment committee for skills enhancement; $200,000 in financial support to solidify a framework for provincial bargaining; CUPE gaining access to sector demographic and classification information for research purposes; and a wage reopener clause in case the public sector net-zero wage mandate changes over the life of the agreement. Meanwhile, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and its employer, the B.C. Public Schools Employers’ Association, have been at loggerheads, with the teachers asking for, among other things, wage parity with Alberta and Ontario teachers – which translates to a hike of more than 20 per cent. The employers’ association has countered with threatening teachers with a 15 per cent salary and ‘

What lies ahead in the B.C. teachers’ dispute? Local teachers’ union president ‘always hopeful’ BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER email@example.com
New Westminster Teachers’ Union president Grant Osborne said he’s hopeful a deal can be reached between teachers and the province this coming year, even though the signs this winter weren’t all that encouraging. “(The B.C. Public School Employers’ Association) has been trying to punish us by repeatedly going to the (Labour Relations Board) instead of negotiating, and they’ve lost each time,” said Osborne. “We’re hoping bargaining can resume in the new year.” Osborne said he was happy to see school support workers – represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees – negotiate their deal, but he’s not sure what effect that will have on the teachers’ bargaining position. “I find it interesting that

Libs walking a tightrope in B.C. IN THE HOUSE
he federal government’s decidedly rightward shift has some potentially big implications for B.C. and whichever party forms the next government here. It also has the chance of making the political tightrope Premier Christy Clark has been walking when it comes to relations with the Harper government that much trickier to navigate. Many have long wondered just how right-wing Prime Minister Stephen Harper was, and the early indications after the last election are that he has moved his government to a footing that is more to the hard right than anything seen previously. No doubt emboldened by the fact that he now has a solid majority in the House of Commons, Harper seems prepared to shape policies more along ideological lines than anything else. For example, his new toughon-crime legislation appeases those in the party who advocate a much more conservative approach to law enforcement. But it flies in the face of statistics that show the crime rate
is actually dropping and some long-held conservative crimefighting policies (i.e. the failing war on drugs) don’t work. The legislation also means added costs for provincial governments that administer most of the criminal justice system. B.C. is already struggling with a lack of judges and sheriffs (to name just two areas of concern), and putting even more people through the system means more funding will be required. But provincial governments shouldn’t look for much help from Ottawa if the Harper government’s action in another key policy area – health care – is any indication. Federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty recently announced a new policy regarding future health funding transfers from Ottawa to the provinces. The impact of the new policy won’t be felt much for the next few years. But starting in 2016, the federal share of health-care funding will be tied directly to the performance of the country’s economy. This will inevitably mean fewer dollars going out the door to the provinces. But there’s no sign health-care costs are going to decrease anytime soon, so any shortfall will have to be covered by – guess who? The provincial governments. Flaherty’s policy also suggests the Harper government may be less interested in maintaining a strong public health-care
Look into the crystal ball
We’ve had a good look back in the pages of The Record at 2011, but I think it’s time to look ahead. Buoyed by my great success in predicting that James Crosty would win the mayoralty race, I fearlessly make more political predictions for the benefit of the whole country: On the federal front, Defence Minister Peter MacKay will switch portfolios and become minister of finance. This will bring both good and bad news. The bad news: within 30 days Canada will have the world’s biggest airforce, but the nation will be bankrupt. The good news: we will all be wards of the United Nations and pay no more taxes. Provincially, Premier Christy Clark will admit that the B.C.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Help newcomers integrate ◗ continued from page 6
ed members from our multicultural community. Claire Wu, New Westminster
My only concern is about people who are immigrants and can’t speak and read English. During this time, I’ve seen that most Chinese immigrants are very isolated and don’t have much knowledge about what’s going on in our community, especially seniors and those whose English level is low. Due to the language barrier, they can’t access to all of the information related to the community, newspapers, public library, etc. Unfortunately, seniors are the most affected population, because when their children go to work, they mostly stay at home to take care of their grandchildren and watch TV. This is not good for their physical and emotional health. How can the City of New Westminster support them and make them feel that they belong in to our great community? In my opinion, city hall’s website should add different languages to translate their municipal administration services information. Also, during the municipal election, why didn’t the candidates translate their political propaganda into the most spoken foreign languages from our city? In addition, cultural awareness classes to educate people and develop activities to mix the communities, such as Chinese New Year, Moon Festival, etc. All of these suggestions are a way to assist not only Chinese immigrants, but also other isolat-
Climate change expert Mark Jaccard from Simon Fraser University says B.C. is on its way to blowing its emission reduction targets. This concerns me on a number of levels, not the least of which is the fact B.C. has, up until now, been a world leader on environmental issues with the toughest greenhouse gas emission reduction targets in North America. According to Jaccard, the only way for B.C. to meet its emission reduction targets is through a major move to renewable energy such as hydroelectricity, wind, solar or run-of-river. Fortunately, renewable energy is available in great abundance within B.C.’s borders, and we merely need to develop it. In terms of job creation, I can’t think of anything that would produce more jobs throughout B.C. than a plan to massively expand the province’s renewable energy infrastructure on a scale similar to that of the massive hydro energy development projects that took place in B.C. during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Jobs and the environment don’t need to cancel each other out. B.C. can successfully lead on both. Yolanda Lora Vilchis, Surrey
system, which would certainly fit a right-wing perspective. One has to wonder whether that government will weaken the Canada Health Act to allow for such things as user fees and an even larger presence of private health care. This brings me to that political tightrope Clark is walking. While most provincial finance ministers blasted Flaherty for his arbitrary cuts to their funding, B.C. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon was warmly supportive, lauding the fact Flaherty had brought “certainty” to the situation. It wasn’t hard to connect some dots here. The Clark government’s survival in the next provincial election is likely directly tied to ensuring it doesn’t lose significant support among conservative voters. Therefore, fighting with a federal Conservative
government is fraught with peril, which may explain Falcon’s positive reaction. But it will be interesting to see if the Clark government can hold back if Flaherty’s next budget contains a lot of aggressive cost-cutting measures, which could have an impact on federal services in this province. The Clark government may suffer collateral damage from any significant public outcry over federal spending cuts, and of course that may simply compound the problems arising from the next B.C. budget, which isn’t expected to be very rosy either. And who knows what other policies will arise from Harper’s right-wing direction? One thing to keep an eye on is the proposed Enbridge pipeline to Kitimat. It appears his government does not view environmental protection as a top priority (given its abandonment of the Kyoto accord), and that may be

another signal the government will push for the pipeline’s construction. On another front, B.C.’s main representative in the federal cabinet – the capable James Moore – was quick to shoot down a Conservative backbencher’s suggestion they outlaw abortion, which suggests the religious right has yet to gain a foothold in the government. But the Tea Party types that no doubt exist among the Conservative faithful may sense that, with a majority now in place, now is the time to push for those policies Harper wouldn’t go near when he needed support from New Democrats and Liberals. Now he holds all the cards. The opposition parties are leaderless and have uncertain futures. We shall have to wait to see how far he goes and how big an impact his policies have on this province.

2011: A LOOK BACK AT THE YEAR’S HEADLINES
The headlines that shaped the city We have been taking a look back at the headlines that shaped the Royal City in 2011. Our Year in Review began Dec. 28 and continued Dec. 30. Starting below, here is the third and final instalment of our look back at 2011:
Forty female hockey players beat the Guinness World Record for playing the longest hockey game in the world. The marathon game, which raised funds for cystic fibrosis, was played in the name of Eva Markvoort. The New Westminster resident had been chosen as the spokesperson for the fundraising campaign but died a few months later at the age of 25. Education Minister George Abbott visits New Westminster, where he sees the district’s new modular classrooms and meets with the district parents’ advisory council to discuss concerns such as when the city’s new schools will be built. A grey Audi is spotted leaving the boardwalk and entering the road, after several people reported someone driving on the Westminster Quay boardwalk. A Vancouver man is charged with impaired driving. The Royal City Farmers Market is teaming up with River Market to bring farmers’ market goodness to the Quay. The farmers market will move its winter market, which runs from November to April, to River Market. New Westminster Youth Centre celebrates the one-year anniversary of opening in Moody Park. While it thought it might be able to get 500 members in its first year, membership had surpassed 700. New Westminster families are among those who protest cutbacks to programs for people with developmental disabilities. George Ryan celebrates a life in music with a retrospective concert of the works he’s done throughout his career, including those from Holy Trinity Cathedral. A month after corralling a 1.22-metrelong corn snake into a box in Queen’s Park, someone hands parks staff a box containing a 38-centimetre ball python that they said they’d found in the park. Both snakes are turned over to the Reptile Rescue Adoption and Education Society. The School District No. 40 Business Company climbs out of the red and expects to finish off repaying its $1 million loan from the school district in 2012. The City of New Westminster breaks ground for its new multi-use civic centre, which will be built at the corner of Columbia and Eighth streets. The $35million civic centre is scheduled to open in 2013. MP Peter Julian decides against running for the leadership of the federal New Democrats, after mulling over the prospect for several weeks. A leadership race will take place to replace Jack Layton, who died of cancer in August.

Thumbs up: New Westminster resident Richard McDonald gives the thumbs up as demolition of the Woodlands Centre Block tower gets underway. McDonald joined other former Woodlands residents at the demolition in October. Auditor General John Doyle visits with New Westminster school trustees, but few details are known about his private meeting with school district officials. The auditor general’s office had been reviewing the governance and financial management processes at the school district, the Royal City Education Foundation and the School District Business Company. New Westminster School District will be reporting a deficit to the Ministry of Education for the second time in three years. The deficit is attributed to three major factors that occurred late in the school year and had financial implications for the district, including costs associated with class size legislation, unanticipated teacher sick days and teacheron-call costs.
turkey dinners at its Thanksgiving dinner. The meal is the kickoff event for Homelessness Action Week. New Westminster resident JJ Lee is named as a finalist in the Governor General’s Literary Awards, which recognize Canada’s best work in English and French.

residents. Activist Paul Mulangu launches a hunger strike and protest outside the now-closed Centre for Integration of African Immigrants on Carnarvon Street – at the same time he announces he’s running for city council. He’s protesting what he says is government abandonment of his non-profit and unfairly being kicked out of the rented space.
Brent Atkinson announces he won’t be seeking re-election in November’s civic election after 31 years as a trustee. He said the past three years haven’t been as personally rewarding as in the past because of conflicts at the board level, so he’d rather concentrate on some of his business and family commitments.
New Westminster Public Library closes for a day after bedbugs are discovered in its collection. A live bedbug and several dead ones were found at the library, which was then visited by a bedbug-sniffing dog and treated for bedbugs.
Royal Columbian Hospital is taking a new approach to organ donation to help lower the number of people who die while waiting for a transplant. It’s among three hospitals that will bring an organ donation coordinator on board.
Former city councillor and MLA Chuck Puchmayr announces he’ll be making a run for city council. Puchmayr had served as MLA until 2009, when he left politics, underwent a lifesaving liver transplant and focused on his health.
New Westminster police seek the public’s help after a man is stabbed downtown. Police had attended a large gathering in the area of Columbia and Church streets when they were alerted to the stabbing that took place early on a Saturday morning.

and MPs Peter Julian and Fin Donnelly are quite open about which candidates they’ll be supporting in the civic election as evidenced by the recorded messages and brochures published that indicate they’ll be supporting local labour candidates. Rhoda Kaellis Residence holds its grand opening. Located at the former Garfield Hotel site, the facility will be run by the Lookout Emergency Aid Society and will provide 24 units of supportive housing for men with a history of homelessness, mental health issues and substance abuse. Wayne Wright is re-elected to his fourth term as New Westminster’s mayor, beating out three challengers seeking his seat. His win came after he got 62 per cent of support from voters. Former city councillor and MLA Chuck Puchmayr is re-elected to city council, and longtime councillor Bob Osterman loses the seat he’s held for 15 years. Incumbents Jonathan Cote, Bill Harper, Jaimie McEvoy, Betty McIntosh and Lorrie Williams retain their seats. Newcomers Jonina Campbell and David Phelan top the polls in the school board elections. Also elected are newcomer MaryAnn Mortensen and incumbents Casey Cook, Michael Ewen, Lisa Graham and James Janzen, while incumbent Jim Goring is unsuccessful in his bid for re-election.
The New Westminster Animal Shelter puts down all of the cats in its care after they contract a highly infectious feline virus. All of the shelter’s 26 cats tested positive for the virus; one died of the virus and the rest were euthanized.
School Employers’ Association. MaryAnn Mortensen is the only trustee without a clear conflict of interest for the elected positions, and she hasn’t accepted the position because she’s not sure what the position entails, as she’s a new trustee.
Organizers of the Sinterklaas Festival cancel the longtime event after concerns are raised that Zwarte Piet is racist. While organizers had originally planned to hold the Sinterklaas festival without Black Peter in his usual form, they couldn’t find something that would work for everyone and cancelled this year’s festival.
A man is charged with sexual assault after a woman awaiting treatment in the emergency department of Royal Columbian hospital is assaulted. The man was kissing the woman and after she worked up the courage to tell him to stop, he left the room and she called for a nurse. Hospital staff restrained the man until police arrived.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper visits the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame in New Westminster. While in Vancouver for the Grey Cup, Harper enjoys a private tour of the facility during his downtime.
Two men face more than 40 charges after an alleged spree of auto break-ins at nine apartment complexes around the city. Police allege that the suspects stole valuables in many of the cars and also intended to steal some of the vehicles. New Westminster school trustees discover they may have only one trustee who isn’t in a potential conflict of interest with the B.C. Public
New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly introduces a private member’s bill that seeks to ban the import of shark fins into Canada. New Westminster ranks 15th on Maclean’s magazine’s most dangerous cities in Canada list.

Take stock of your life as new year begins HEALTHWISE
DR. DAVIDICUS WONG
s we scramble to fill our new calendars, get into the groove of new schedules, and perhaps consider a New Year’s resolution or two, let’s seize this time of transition to reflect on the year that has passed and take stock of our lives. A year is a great expanse of time – though, when it’s over, it may
seem to have passed more quickly than the one before. This is a near universal experience among busy adults. The older we are, the more accelerated seems the passage of each succeeding year. But when you consider the 12 months of the year – the events in your community: elections, riots, the Grey Cup in Vancouver, parades; the milestones of your social life: births, deaths, engagements, breakups, weddings and the illnesses of friends and family members; what you accomplished at work or in class; the people you met; the challenges you faced; and growth or trans-
ily vacations, music lessons, games and practices, swimming classes, school concerts, holidays, birthdays and other celebrations. Though we at first focus on the events and activities that filled the year, our focus is always on our relationships. After all, that’s what life is all about. We may have endured some hard times, unusual challenges and family milestones. How did we survive? Who helped us get through? Over the past year, who made a difference in our lives? We define ourselves by
formation in your relationships – you experienced a great deal! It was a great expanse of time. Before we let it go, we can reflect on our experiences, our relationships, what we have gained, what we have lost, what we have survived, how we have grown and what we have accomplished together. Before we put out the new calendar, I like to sit down with the kids and review the year that has passed. We sit at the table and page through the old kitchen calendar, filled with the schedules and events of the year: fam-

New Westminster earns Xmas draw BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
The New Westminster Royals were not shut out at the Burnaby Minor bantam AAA hockey tournament last week. The Royals earned a single point following a 4-4 draw against Ridge Meadows on the opening day of the 49th annual postChristmas tourney. Garett Hoffard tallied a hat trick, including the go-ahead goal in the final minutes of play for the Royal City squad. Ridge Meadows went on to place ahead of New Westminster in divisional pool play, taking third place on goals for and against. In New West’s first of two games on Dec. 27, the Royals blew a 3-1 lead against Vancouver in a 6-4 loss. Hoffard, Ermias Mulatu and Josh Lauener all scored a goal and added one assist apiece. Dalton Lupul had the Royals’ only goal in a 6-1 loss to North Delta in the team’s final division game. New West then faced eventual bronze medal-winning Semiahmoo in the crossover elimination round, dropping a 9-2 result. Semiahmoo defeated Seafair of Richmond 5-3 in the game for third place. Cloverdale won the Burnaby tourney 6-3 over the North Shore Winter Club. The Eagles made it to the quarter-finals of the 49th annual tourney for the first time in more than a decade, when Burnaby lost to eventual champion Surrey in the 1999 semifinal. Although Burnaby’s appearance in the tournament final eight was marred 9-0 by eventual

Icebreaker: Josh Lauener broke the ice for New Westminster, scoring the team’s ﬁrst goal in a 9-2 loss to Semiahmoo in the elimination round of the Burnaby bantam hockey tournament on Dec. 29. and first-time bantam champion Cloverdale on Friday, the significance of the feat was not. “Together we’re just happy to keep ourselves growing – taking baby steps and keeping moving up the ladder,” said Burnaby captain Marcus Vela. The Eagles advanced into the quarters with third-period rally in a 5-3 victory over South Delta. Mario Juzipovic led the rally with a goal and two assists.
Christian Bettiol and Ken Takahashi also had third-period counters. The Colts won their third straight bantam tournament, handing the North Shore Winter Club its first loss in three previous meetings in the gold-medal final. Christopher Seto, who shared a gold medal with the Burnaby Winter Club at last year’s Burnaby tournament, was named the most outstanding forward for
Cloverdale. “It’s never the same,” said Seto after the game. “Our team is getting better on offence and defence and our hope is we’re going to win the St. Albert tournament, then win the provincials and then get to the Westerns.” Joining Seto, were outstanding goalie Bo Didur and most outstanding defenceman NSWC Mitchell Stapley.
The New Westminster Hyacks placed second at the Douglas College Winter Classic high school girls’ basketball tournament to end 2011. The Hyacks pounded W.J. Mouat 73-32 in the final game of the tourney behind 34 points from player of the game Ariana Sider. Centennial, 73-66 winners over New Westminster in the opening game of the four-team tourney, won the Winter Classic title. Hyack player of the game Meriam Ali potted 25 points against Centennial, while Sider led the squad with 28 points. The Hyacks also outscored Mennonite Educational Institute 68-53 at the tournament. Sider and Ali scored 25 and 19 points, respectively, while Sharmaine Hayley chipped in with 14 points. New Westminster improved its record to 9-3. The Hyacks are back at it this week at the Archbishop Carney tournament in Port Coquitlam, beginning today (Wednesday).
