Chief angry city didn’t notify him First Nation wants DNA testing for remains at NWSS BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

A First Nations chief is angry the City of New Westminster didn’t inform him it was digging on the New Westminster Secondary School site – an area protected by the Heritage Conservation Act because it housed a cemetery – and says they are prepared to take legal action if their demands for DNA sampling on any found remains aren’t met. Chief Joe Alphonse with Tsilhqot’in Nation traveled from Williams Lake to the Lower Mainland Monday to meet with Jim Alkins, project manager for the new schools, and city staff to talk about why his group wasn’t informed about a city project to install fire hydrants, which disturbed the ground on the high school. The group believes there is a small chance one of their ancestors – Chief Ahan – could be buried there. “They were hoping they were going to get permission from us to allow the archeologist to sift through all of that soil and move on with their agenda,” Alphonse said. “But as far as we’re concerned, we weren’t consulted properly or adequately, and we weren’t aware they were going to be doing this, and now that they’ve done this, we will not allow them to touch that soil until they agree to do DNA sampling if they find any remains.” The officials told them they don’t want to provide DNA sampling if they find any remains, Alphonse said. “We are prepared to take legal action if they don’t adhere to our demands,” he said. “We have to protect our interest, and our interest is that there might be a small possibility that Ahan might be buried there.” Chief Ahan was one of six chiefs sentenced to death during the Chilcotin War, a confrontation in 1864 between members of the Tsilhqot’in people in B.C. and European settlers. He was executed in July 1865.

Rat tale: John Hislop shows off one of the industrial rat traps he’s using to trap the pesky rodents at his Sapperton home, where he says he’s caught six rats so far this year. Hislop contends that his neighbourhood has seen a higher incidence of rats this year and part of the problem may be two abandoned houses in the area.

Year of the rats in New West? BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER

After the discovery of a rat at New Westminster Secondary School and the resulting furor, another Royal City resident has come forth with his belief that there are more rats in the city than usual this year. Sapperton resident John Hislop told The Record he’s already caught six rats in his house this year and he’s had to resort to using industrial rat traps. “In my neighbourhood, I’ve noticed

more pest control vans, and it’s the talk of the neighbourhood,” he said. “My neighbours are also catching rats.” Hislop said the issue may be related to two abandoned houses in the neighbourhood. And while he and his neighbours haven’t made a formal complaint about those homes or their perceived increase in rat sightings, that may be the next step. “Do I think the (rat) problem is any worse than previous years? I don’t know,” he said. “What I do know is, I’m catching more rats this year and so are

my neighbours.” Sukhwinder Maghera, animal control coordinator for the City of New Westminster, said he hasn’t received any complaints about an increased number of rats in the city. “I think our last complaint about rats came two years ago, when there was construction at the St. Mary’s site,” said Maghera. “Since then, we haven’t had anything.” The Record also contacted the Fraser Health Authority to ask whether they

City firefighters take on Canucks


The Vancouver Canucks Alumni will face off against New Westminster firefighters in the biannual Hydrant Cup. The game, held every two years at Queen’s Park Arena, is a fundraiser for the New Westminster Firefighters’ Charitable Society. The society donates funds to a variety of causes in the community, including the pediatric unit at Royal Columbian Hospital, the Union Gospel Mission and various food programs. “This is our seventh game,” said firefighter Paul Adamson, who is organizing this year’s event. “This is our biggest fundraiser, along with our tree-chipping

event. We are hoping to pass $20,000.” The 2012 Hydrant Cup takes place on Friday, Nov. 30 at Queen’s Park Arena. The puck drops at 7 p.m., but doors open at 5:30 p.m. Pre-game activities include an outdoor barbecue, the New Westminster Fire and Rescue Service’s honour guard, a display of fire trucks, music by the New Westminster Secondary School jazz band, a visit from Sparky the fire dog and Fin the Canucks mascot, face painting and a clown. The night’s fun includes a 50/50 draw, Frisbee toss, silent auction and scrimmage between two minor hockey teams. In addition to raising funds for various projects supported by the New Westminster Firefighters’ Charitable

Society, the game also provides an opportunity for local schools and teams to raise funds. They’ll receive $5 from each $10 family (two adults and two children) purchase they sell. “We want to fill the rink,” Adamson said. “It’s a good incentive for the PACs at the school and the teams as well.” Retired Canucks Dave Babych and Orland Kurtenbach will join forces to coach the CanucksAlumni team. Confirmed players for the Canucks include Cliff Ronning, Kirk McLean, Mark Lofthouse, Garry Valk, Gary Nylund, David Bruce, Larry Melnyk, Terry Bingley and Rick Amann. “We are happy with the lineup. It should be a good game. We are putting our best firefighters forward,” Adamson

said. “They are entertaining games.” New Westminster resident and retired NHL goalie Bill Ranford, a big supporter of the Hydrant Cup and the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Kings, is trying to fit the game into his schedule. Royal City resident John Ashbridge, who is the voice of the Canucks at many of their home games, will announce the game. In addition to raising funds for the New Westminster Firefighters’ Charitable Society, the Hydrant Cup also raises money for Queen’s Park Care Centre. Tickets are $10 for a family of four (two adults and two children) or $5 each. They can be purchased at the Glenbrook Fire Hall (1 East Sixth Ave.) or at Queen’s Park Arena.

RCH ER numbers jump after flood takes out Surrey ER BY MARELLE REID REPORTER

The emergency room at Royal Columbian Hospital has seen a 22 per cent increase in patient visits since a flood shut down the ER at Surrey Memorial

Hospital on Nov. 19, according to Fraser Health spokesperson Roy Thorpe-Dorward. This increase is equal to between 35 and 40 extra patients per day, he noted. RCH is one of the hospitals in the Greater Vancouver area

included in a diversion plan to coordinate care of patients who would have otherwise been treated at Surrey Memorial. “Because of this increased volume, we’re certainly asking people to be patient for (some) increased waits that might result,

but we’re not hearing anything unmanageable or extraordinary,” Thorpe-Dorward said. Between 15 and 20 per cent of patients who visit the hospital’s ER are admitted, and there has been an average of eight extra patients admitted to the hospital

per day since Nov. 19, he said. Regularly scheduled surgeries have not been affected, said Thorpe-Dorward. Surrey Memorial’s ER is expected to re-open in early December.

Rats: Local resident wonders if rodent problem is an epidemic in area had received more complaints about rats this year. “While we do from time to time receive complaints from people about rats on their own property,” said Fraser Health spokesperson Tasleem Juma, “we have not seen an increase in rats in public areas.” A call to Orkin Canada Pest Control’s Burnaby location had a customer service agent say that anecdotally, their location hasn’t received any more calls than usual. The agent preferred to

stay anonymous, referring the matter to a local regional manager, who did not return a message left by The Record. Hislop said that when he went to Orkin to get his

traps, he saw something completely different. “The phones were ringing off the hook there,” he said. “I saw other people buying traps and other things. … I think this is an

Young Achiatou, 12, said 6,204 children from around the simply, “I am afraid of war, and I would world.

The survey was commissioned by The children surveyed not only the ChildFund Alliance and the Christian


showed tremendous compassion, wisdom and, in many cases, optimism. One Afghanistan child, Zabihullah, said, “I am afraid of child kidnapping. If I was president I would provide programs about child rights.” Perhaps, not surprisingly, when asked about their aspirations children in developed countries want to make their mark by becoming professional athletes or entertainers. While children in developing countries want to change their world by working in health care

or education. But what is perhaps most interesting was an almost universal interest in the environmental future of the world. According to ChildFund’s secretary-general Jim Emerson, “Consistently, children want to protect their world. Their greatest environmental concern is pollution. They want to enhance their communities by planting trees and creating more parks, and they take a strong stand against litter and rubbish.” Indeed, we should stop and truly listen to the children.

B.C. election is fast approaching IN THE HOUSE



lection nights are usually exciting events and next spring’s provincial contest should be no exception. But as I sit next to Chris Gailus on the Global set on the evening of May 13, 2013, poring over riding-by-riding results throughout the evening, one race may attract more of our attention than others because it’s shaping up to have more drama than any other. That would be the riding of Abbotsford-South. It has the potential to be a genuine fourway race, a rarity in B.C.’s usually polarized electorate. In fact, it could even be a five-way race. The riding is usually safe territory for the B.C. Liberals. The party won the seat in 2009 with more than 58 per cent of the vote, and it ranks in the top 10 of seats where the party did best. But a number of factors are now at play that have turned this contest on its head and makes it a genuine toss-up, a development that seemed unthinkable just a couple of years ago. First, long-time incumbent John van Dongen, who has held the seat since winning a byelec-

tion there in 1995, will be running as a credible Independent candidate (assuming he won’t join yet another party before the election is called). Van Dongen, of course, quit the B.C. Liberals last spring. Presumably, he will attract a fair share of the vote next spring, certainly more than your average “independent” candidate would. The B.C. Conservatives will no doubt field a candidate, although given the fact they appear to be crumbling both in the polls and internally it’s unlikely that person will play anything more than a spoiler role. And this brings us back to the B.C. Liberals and the party’s controversial decision to let its head office stick its nose in constituency affairs and elbow one candidate out of the way in favour of another. The displaced would-be candidate is local councillor Moe Gill, who had been planning to challenge van Dongen for the nomination before the MLA quit the party. Gill had been working for two years to secure the nomination, and his supporters had taken control over the riding association in the process. But the party’s head office had other ideas and informed Gill he was out and wouldn’t be getting the nomination. Instead, noted criminologist Darryl Plecas was appointed the candidate over the wishes of the

What a waste of money

Dear Editor:

I understand that we are paying for a trip to New York (area) for various New Westminster “officials.” According to media reports, the committee will be heading there to get information about handling a disaster like superstorm Sandy. It was clear to me that all the info could be attained from sources such as the internet, as many items were detailed and those details did not come from a visit, so what’s the point of a visit? I am completely against such trips as a waste of money. I suspect someone will say, “It’s not much money.” And that attitude is prevalent in government and is why my taxes keep going up. If the trip costs less than $20,000 it would amaze me. Even if we paid a consultant (not another one!) $200 per ◗Election Page 7 hour, they’d have 100 hours to produce a huge

report that can sit on the shelf and be obsolete before the next election. This trip should be cancelled. Want the info? Ever hear of Google? It’s a neat internet service that lets you search for such information for free (a dirty word at city hall I’m sure). If the trip goes ahead (inevitable I am afraid), I look forward to the public report detailing what was learned and the total costs being shared to understand if I got good value for my tax dollars. I doubt good value is to be had. Rick Miller, New Westminster

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Hospital trip displeases ◗ continued from page 6

However, I was not impressed. I was in severe pain and it showed. The first person I met was the admitting clerk. She was very cold and rude. “I need some ID.” I gave her my medical card. She pushed it back at me and said: “I need some picture ID,” so I gave her my driver’s licence. “Take a seat over there.” Please or thank you never said. After several hours I was told to follow the line to the next waiting room, which was very small and crowded. Next, a doctor walked in, sat beside me and said “I will now take your history.” All eyes were on us. I was flabbergasted and said “No, you won’t, not in here!” He apologized and left. I then smelled a foul smell. It turned out somebody earlier on had vomited on the carpeted floor. It was not cleaned and dried into the carpet. Also, I noted many patients were elderly from what I assume third-world countries, all taking in their native tongue. Before you jump to to the conclusion

that I am a racist, trust me I am not. However, I am against elderly people being admitted to this country. This goes for all countries. Our medical system is in bad enough shape as it is. As far as uniting the parents and children, this is not a valid reason. If you can’t stand the thought of separating the simple answer is: don’t come to Canada. We should look more at immigrants from Europe who have skills that are so desperately needed. Many signs in the hospital were in Punjabi and Chinese. I was under the impression Canada had only two official languages: English and French. Other signs stated “Rude language will not be tolerated.” Why didn’t the admitting clerk say “You seem to be in a lot of pain, this won’t take long and may I please see some ID. This is part of their job and if that is too much to ask for don’t be a frontline employee. Get another job! This pretty well covers my visit to the emergency room. No, I was not impressed or amused!

Election: Interesting races ahead ◗ continued from page 6

party’s riding executive, who all quit in protest. This messy affair will no doubt cost the B.C. Liberals votes. Gill and his supporters are planning on some kind of revenge, although it’s not clear what, exactly, that will entail. But Plecas, van Dongen and the B.C. Conservative candidate will all be fighting over slices of the same pie now. The centre-right vote bloc will now be split three ways, instead of the usual two. The person to benefit most from this unusual scenario is the NDP candidate, Lhakvinder Jhaj, who is no doubt smiling a lot these days. She is now the only Indo-Canadian in the race, which gives her yet another advantage in a riding that has a large Indo-

Canadian community. The NDP candidate got almost 26 per cent of the vote in 2009, which was nowhere near van Dongen’s winning total of course. But look at it this way. About 9,500 people voted for the B.C. Liberals last time, and about 4,200 voted for the NDP. If the NDP can boost its total vote by about 1,000 people (a safe proposition, given the party’s rise in the polls and the everchanging demographic of the riding, which is becoming younger), it can achieve victory if 3,300 or so B.C. Liberal voters either vote for van Dongen or someone else. Given the party’s treatment of Gill, and van Dongen’s own personal popularity, such a scenario doesn’t seem far-fetched. There’s another reason the NDP may be gaining

confidence in AbbotsfordSouth. The latest Angus Reid poll shows the B.C. Liberals continue to have trouble hanging onto their supporters from the previous election. About one-third of previous B.C. Liberal voters say they won’t back the party this time around. In Abbotsford-South that translates to about 3,200 voters - about the number the NDP needs to pull out a victory. Given the B.C. Liberal party’s internal problems in the riding, I suspect the number of disaffected party voters may be even higher. This all adds up to making Abbotsford-South a riding to watch next May 13.

Cemetery: Any remains found on site will be placed in a safe depository ◗ continued from page 1

The exact location of Ahan’s burial spot remains a mystery. The possibility that Ahan might be buried at the high school surfaced in 2008 and drew attention to the old cemetery under New Westminster Secondary School. Aresearch report determined Ahan likely was buried by the old courthouse downtown, but the chance that he could be on the high school site is enough for Alphonse and his group to demand DNA testing. They want to bring Ahan’s remains back to the CaribooChilcotin region of British Columbia. Meanwhile, Alkins said the reliability and logistics of trying to achieve DNA testing is a concern. “There’s a whole series of processes that you go through, and the results may not actually provide information that is meaningful,” he said. “Not all of the parties … support DNA testing.” Any remains that are found will be put in a safe depository, he said. “Then testing could be done at some point in the future, if required,” Alkins said. Faith Bodnar with the B.C. Association of Community

Living, a group that advocates for people with developmental disabilities, was also upset the city started digging without proper permits, which would have required the city to inform the various stakeholder groups whose members may have been buried on the site. Patients from Woodlands and Essondale – which later became Riverview – were buried at the high school cemetery. “There’s been a cemetery there for more than 150 years,” Bodnar said. “They know where the lines of the cemetery are, they know where they are not. I’m just surprised they proceeded without having proper information and things in place. I think it’s disrespectful to the fact that that is a cemetery, and they’ve had 150 years to figure out how to excavate there properly.” The interested parties need to meet and discuss the situation, Bodnar said. “So that everybody has the same information what the future plans are, so that we can all be part of ensuring that the respect that is due to people buried there is at the heart of everything that’s done, and that they don’t cause additional hurt and pain with the things they are doing,” she said. “I

think they have a legal and a moral responsibility to deal with that site extremely sensitively and carefully.” Jim Lowrie, the city’s director of engineering, said the city has temporarily halted work on the project – which included a water main installation on the west side of Eighth Street, and has applied for a heritage alteration permit. “Out of an abundance of caution, I might add, because we are so close to the former cemetery site,” Lowrie said. The city didn’t anticipate encroaching on the school property line, but applied for the permit when it did, Lowrie said. The city is working with Golder Associates, the same group helping to guide the school district through the complicated process of managing the site. “At this point, we haven’t found any humans remains,” Lowrie said. Almost a dump truck-sized pile of dirt was removed from the site during the construction period, but it has not yet been sifted through, Lowrie said. The city is waiting on approval from the province to continue with the work.

In waiting: The City of New Westminster has halted a project to install fire hydrants on the New Westminster Secondary site, which formerly housed a cemetery.

City looks at changes to uptown developments BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

A new plaza and an outdoor patio are among the proposals being put forward by the Uptown Property Group. Uptown Property Group, which owns Westminster Centre at 555 Sixth St., has applied to city hall for a development permit so it can create a plaza in the area in front of Starbucks and TD Canada Trust. “We think this plaza would work really well as a focal point for the community,” said Bart Slotman, vice-president of the Uptown Property Group. “We see it as an opportunity to add to the public realm.” In order to create the plaza, the sidewalk in

front of the mall would be expanded and three existing, on-street parking stalls would be eliminated. As part of the sidewalk expansion and plaza constructionproject,Starbucks’ patio would be moved closer to the coffee shop and would only be accessible from inside Starbucks. A public art component is also being considered as part of the plaza, which would include some new street trees and seasonal seating areas. The Uptown Property Group is holding an open house on Thursday, Nov. 29 from 5 to 8 p.m. at #300601 Sixth St. (the building where Westminster Savings is located). In addition to the plaza proposal, Uptown Property Group will also provide information about proposal to build an out-

door patio on the Fifth Street side of Queen’s Park West. The outdoor patio would be for a 4,000square-foot restaurant that will be located on the main floor of Queen’s Park West, which is now under construction. “It’s pretty modern, it’s pretty contemporary. It’s multi-location operator,” Slotman said about the restaurant. “We are pretty excited about it.” Slotman was unable to name the restaurant that’s planning to operate in the

building. “It’s really not my call to make,” he said. “It’s the restaurateur’s to make.” While it’s unlikely an announcement will be made before the new year, Slotman said the restaurant will be an amenity for people who live and work in the area. “It will be a neat addition for the building,” he said of the four-storey building. “It is an amenity to the office building.” Architect Eric Pattison, who also designed the building, has designed the

patio. “It blends in really well,” Slotman said of the design. As part of the public process that’s required for amending the development permit, the Uptown Property Group has informed the Glenbrook and Queen’s Park residents’ associations about the proposal and has sent information packages to about 25 neighbours living on Fifth Street. “We applied to the city for an amendment to the development permit,”

Slotman said. “We did not anticipate, when the development permit was taken out and approved, using the side yard for a patio.” As part of the Queen’s Park West project, Slotman said Uptown Property Group voluntarily agreed to replace sidewalks all the way to the corner where Blenz is located. If the development permit needed for the plaza is approved by the city, he said the work would all be done at the same time. TheresaMcManus

Checking out the Lively City ◗P12 The big cheese comes to New West ◗P16

Celebrating the season in New West Christmas Parade of Lights returns Dec. 1, along with tree-lighting festivities Mark the calendar: the annual Christmas parade takes place this coming Saturday, Dec. 1, in downtown New Westminster, starting at 4 p.m. Afterwards, a tree-lighting ceremony will be held in Hyack Square to highlight the 38-foot-tall tree that will be on display throughout the season. Organizers say this year’s event features a variety of entertainment through the evening, as well as food trucks, children’s activities and a photo booth. Children attending the festivities are encouraged to bring letters to Santa, which can be delivered to Canada Post elves for delivery to the North Pole. They should be addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole, HOH OHO and must include a return address. Donations of non-perishable food items or cash, in support of families in need, will be accepted at the CIBC Santa Claus photo booth in Hyack Square. The Hyack Festival went to city council earlier this year to talk about creating a revitalized holiday festival without the parade itself, but councillors expressed concern about eliminating the longstanding tradition. However, this year’s event does include some aspects of the proposed new festival. “I think we are on the right track,” Douglas Smith, Hyack Festival Association president, told The Record recently. “We have got to build the event up if it stays that way. If we transition to something else, this is the start of that.”

Say ‘cheese’ at market MOVERS & SHAKERS



a Grotta del Formaggio, a Commercial Drive institution for foodies, is opening in Donald’s Market. The Italian speciality store offers a delicious selection of renowned cheeses from around the world and the province. Established on the Drive in 1979 by Fortunato Bruzzese, La Grotta Del Formaggio is known for its cured meats, olives, oils, Italian sandwiches and, of course, cheese. Now, with the new deli counter in Donald’s Market, New Westminster gets the same taste of Italy, says a media release from the River Market. The relationship between the two businesses facilitated the move to New Westminster, Sandra Bruzzese, from La Grotta, says in the release.

“It’s a good fit. In East Vancouver we’re all about small, independent business, and we support each other. We have a relationship with Donald’s; we supply the three stores from our wholesale division, and we’re also customers. I do my own shopping there – the prices are so much better than those at Whole Foods, for the same products,” she says. The new addition to Donald’s comes as the grocery store celebrates a milestone: it’s been two years since it opened as one of River Market’s first tenants in 2010. Brothers Gary, Donald and Glen Joe are behind the independent store, which has evolved over the years, from selling

mostly produce to carrying a wide selection of organic and conventional food, drinks and grocery items, personal care products, cleaning supplies, kitchen tools and pet supplies, the release notes. It also grew to three locations, including the flagship store in New Westminster.

Holiday Safety Tips for your Pets

• Consider using a pet-safe propylene-based antifreeze instead of ethylene glycol antifreeze, which is toxic to pets and wildlife. • During the colder months, cats and wildlife gravitate to warm engines; bang on the hood before getting into your car. • Ensure your tree is well secure, decorations are above paw height and use string to hang your ornaments instead of hooks which can become easily dislodged. Remember: don’t add chemicals or any other harmful substances to the water in your tree base. • Be extra cautious when using holiday trimmings such as tinsel and candles, which can cause injury to your pets. • Certain holiday plants can be poisonous to your pets so keep mistletoe, holly, ornamental pepper and Christmas roses out of reach. • Poultry bones can easily splinter and the fragments can cause intestinal blockages or lacerations, so avoid giving turkey bones to your pets to chew on. • Chocolate and other treats should never be given to pets. Chocolate contains a chemical called theobromine which can be deadly to cat and dogs. • Always thoroughly clean the pads of your pet’s paws after they have walked on sidewalks or roads to remove any coarse salt which if left can cause irritation to your pet. Use a pet-friendly, non-corrosive de-icing salt for your own sidewalks.

Westminster seniors and service providers can decide what works for them within the Better at Home structure,” said Mariam Larson, a local gerontologist hired to develop the program in New Westminster. Better At Home is a program funded by the

B.C. Health Ministry and delivered by the United Way. It’s designed to help low-income seniors get help with non-medical tasks. That could include friendly visits, help with groceries, minor home repairs, transportation, light yard work and housekeeping, Continued on page 19 ...

... Continued from page 18 depending on the needs of the community. Volunteers typically deliver the services, and seniors pay based on their income. The fees go back into the program to support others who are using the services. The program is meant to help low-income seniors without taking business away from the private sector. Help with bathing and medication is not offered, as those tasks are taken care of by community health workers, and non-profit groups, such as Meals on Wheels in Burnaby and New Westminster, deliver precooked meals. “We know most seniors, if given the choice, would prefer to live independently as long as they can in their own homes, among friend and neighbours,” said Michael McKnight, president and CEO of the United Way Lower Mainland.

So far, 18 sites have been named for the Better At Home program, including New Westminster, and the total should reach 60 over the next year. Larson, who also coordinates Voices of Burnaby Seniors, is hoping Burnaby will be named in the next round of participating communities. On Tuesday, Nov. 27 United Way was scheduled to host a community presentation about the program in New Westminster, after The Record deadlines. At that meeting, Larson presented results from work she’s done, finding out what local seniors need and identifying a possible agency to deliver the program in New Westminster. That agency can then apply for a maximum grant of $100,000 per year to run the program. Larson said the program should be up and running in spring of 2013.

With the Better At Home program, seniors pay for help with tasks, based on their income. Photo contributed: The Record

Books and balls: New Westminster Hyacks lineman Arjun Venkatesh was honoured as the program’s first-ever B.C. high school football academic player of the year on Tuesday at the association’s year-end awards.

Hyack lineman named first top academic player of year


What New Westminster Hyack lineman Arjun Venkatesh brought to the table was much more than a 6-2, 245-pound frame. The senior starting varsity Hyack centre was voted the B.C. high school football academic player of the year at the provincial all-star awards banquet on Tuesday. Venkatesh, a 17-year-old International Baccalaureate honours student at New Westminster Secondary School for the past three years, has maintained a 96.5 per cent average this year and last with a full academic IB course load that included higher level chemistry, physics and English. Venkatesh is the first Hyack to earn the B.C. academic player of the year honour. The third-year Hyack also found time to volunteer as co-organizer of the school’s Clothes Swap that benefits homeless youth through Covenant House, and as a member of

the Red Cross and Canadian Cancer Society clubs, as well as many other activities that the football program was involved with throughout the city. Venkatesh, who is fluent in four languages, including French, also plays trombone in the high school jazz band. But Venkatesh was also a very good football player and just missed earning a place on the all-Western Conference team by a single vote this season. “(Venkatesh) graded out as our best lineman. On the field, he always knew where he needed to be,” said varsity head coach Farhan Lalji. “I was really glad he wanted to make football part of his high school experience.” Players appreciated what Venkatesh brought to the program, naming him a captain of the varsity team in a first-ever peer vote. He also helped tutor players in the football program. “Football has taught me the importance of selflessness, hard

work, accountability, responsibility and passion, and how to apply these traits on and off the field,” Ventakesh wrote in his letter for scholarship. “I know that my good work ethic and determination to succeed will carry through to my post-secondary education and ultimately help me become successful in life.” It is very likely that Venkatesh has given his very last snap to a quarterback in organized football. After high school, he will be working towards a career in electrical or mechanical engineering. His post-secondary expectations include exploring the possibilities of green technology in developing high efficiency energy and power systems. At present, he is currently leaning towards enrolling in the topnotch engineering program at the University of B.C. But there will always be a part of Venkatesh that will remain a Hyack. “The main things are the friendships. You put so much time into ◗Academic Page 23

Simon Fraser University won its first official home stand as a full member in NCAA Division II women’s basketball. The Clan swept Cal State Stanislaus in back-toback games this weekend, winning 95-52 on Friday before taking the second game 76-46 the following night in Burnaby. Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe posted her fourth and fifth double-double in just seven games to date to lead the Clan. Raincock-Ekunwe led all scorers in the opening matchup, scoring 22 points and 15 rebounds, including 18 of those points and 11 boards coming in the first half of play. The conference preseason pick for player of the year, added 16 points and 13 rebounds in the Saturday night win over Stanislaus. “We wanted to come out strong. Last weekend was a bit shaky, so it was good to play well tonight,”

said Raincock-Ekunwe in an SFU press release. On Friday, Erin Chambers chipped in with 20 points in 20 minutes of floor time. SFU, last week’s Great Northwest team of the week, also capitalized on the opposition errors, outscoring Stanislaus 33-5 off turnovers. The Clan bench also did its job, outscoring the Warriors 36-13. New Westminster Secondary grad and Clan guard Kia Van Laare finished the game with 11 of her 16 points in the second half. On Saturday, SFU improved its overall season record to 6-1, thanks in part to some big defensive numbers from Rebecca Langmead, who posted a game-high seven blocks along with 10 rebounds and eight points. The Clan hosts its Great Northwest conference league opener on Thursday against Saint Martin’s University in the West Gym. Tip-off is at 7 p.m.

Fine showing by Shuttlesports in Edmonton Douglas College badminton players turned some heads in an Alberta Series event in Edmonton last weekend. Freshman Nathan Choi had a pair of strong showings in doubles, advancing to the men’s doubles with Luo Wei and making it to the semi-

final with Charmaine Reid of Alberta in mixed doubles. Choi, 18, and Wei lost to Chinese internationals Dan Kai and Lei Chen in straight sets in the men’s final. Choi and Reid took Chen and Jessica Yu to three sets before losing 21-11 in the tiebreaker.

In men’s singles, Wei lost 21-19, 21-14 in the semifinals. Bob Sharma and Mark Chang teamed up for a top-four finish following a 21-18, 21-17 loss to Kai and Chen in men’s doubles play. Sharma made the top eight and Chang to the round of 16 in singles.

Cheers lead Hyacks to best season

The Royal City Hyacks community football program put forward a spirited year this season. The atom Black Hyacks lost a recent disappointing 26-18 semifinal to the eventual league champion Coquitlam Lions. Running back Jordan Freeland scored a pair of touchdowns for the eightand nine-year-olds and led the team in rushing this season. Jude Buchanan also scored, while linemen Darius Wong and Krishan Prasad had solid games on both sides of the ball. However, the Hyacks cheerleading squad won the spirit award at Vancouver Mainland Football League’s annual cheering competition in Surrey. The Hyacks cheer squad, with members as young as six, helped the program double its on-field winning percentage this season. Community football registration is also up by 50 per cent, making the Hyacks one of the largest youth sports clubs in the city. The Hyacks were also amongst the winningest with three of its four tackle football teams qualifying for league playoffs. The club will hold its annual awards night for its flag, atom, cheer and peewee players at the Pearson gym at NWSS on Dec. 5. The junior bantam community squad will be honoured at the Hyacks’ high school football dinner at Queensborough’s Roma Hall on Dec. 7.

football – living, breathing and eating with your teammates,” Venkatesh said. “It’s not just the season, it’s the off-season, too. But those friendships will probably be the thing that I miss the most.” Venkatesh will leave the high school Hyack football program as a role model for future student/athletes. Lalji described him as “exactly the type of young man who exemplifies the term student/athlete,” and someone B.C. high school football and the school should be proud of. But the football memories will likely be what Venkatesh will remember. “Winning homecoming; that was pretty cool. It was our 10th anniversary. The captains got to speak with the alumni, and they told us we had to win the game. It was a pretty big win for us,” he said.

Pair sign lacrosse letters Gaby Jones and Mary McQueen of New Westminster were among 16 Team B.C. field lacrosse players who signed national letters of intent with university programs down south. McQueen will play on scholarship at NCAA Division I Long Island University, while Jones will head off to American International, a Div. II college.

JYRKKÄNEN Paula Elisabet Inkeri

(1922 – 2012) In sadness we share the passing of our beloved mother Paula. Paula passed peacefully on Nov 9, 2012 at the Finnish Manor in Burnaby, BC with family near, surrounded by compassion and endearing Finnish music and prayer, which meant so much to her. Paula is survived by her son Jorma Jyrkkänen, daughter Hannele Davidson and son Kenneth Jyrkkänen and his wife Stacey. She also leaves to mourn her grandchildren Tamara and Kirsten Davidson (Hannele), Michaela and Arisson Jyrkkänen (Kenneth), and Celine Jyrkkänen-Väänänen and her children (Paula’s great grandchildren) Nadege, Danae, and Alexis of France. Paula is predeceased by her mother Maria, father Juho, husband Feliks, and all her siblings - sisters Aila, Maire, and Liisa and brothers Lauri and Alpo; also her son Douglas, daughter Leena, and grandsons Karl Konrad Nagy and Jeffrey Eric Jyrkkänen-Väänänen.
