The award-winning house that Charlotte baked New Westminster student creates awesome gingerbread house complete with candy family figurines BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

She holds up one of the fondant figurines she made for her gingerbread house display – it’s a girl sitting on a man’s shoulders. “This one’s inspired by my dad and me,” Charlotte Gurney-Banning says, before placing it in front of the elaborate holiday scene she made for to 2012 Hyatt Gingerbread Lane Competition. Charlotte came in second place in her category. It was her first time entering the competition, but to see her entry, you wouldn’t know it. The gingerbread house looks like it was crafted by a seasoned pro. Charlotte is an 18-year-old student at New Westminster Secondary School, who also happens to have Asperger’s syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often marked by difficulties in social interaction and repetitive patterns of behavior. “I have it, (but) it doesn’t define my entire person,” Charlotte said. “Autism is just a part of it.” Before she was diagnosed in Grade 7, Charlotte struggled to keep up in ◗Charlotte Page 10

City nixes full-motion digital sign at The Plaza BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

New Westminster city council has shot down plans to place digital signage on the Plaza at New Westminster Station. On behalf of Plaza 88 Retail Development Ltd., the Pattison Sign Group applied to city hall for variances that would allow a 68-square-metre full-motion digital sign to be installed on

the Columbia Street façade of the development. The sign would require variances to six sections of the city’s signage bylaw. Peter Stanley, a senior consultant at the Pattison Sign Group, told council Monday night that the proposed message centre has been supported by the Downtown and Quayside residents’ associations. “The message centres are a valuable tool in getting the mes-

sage out to the community and the people they are trying to serve,” he said. Stanley noted that other message boards are located in the city, including the city’s board at Queen’s Park, Douglas College and the Royal Towers. He said the proposed sign at the Plaza at New Westminster Station would be 16 by 40 feet in size, which is 11 times the size of the Queen’s Park message board that’s locat-

ed at Sixth Avenue and McBride Boulevard. Although the tenants would like to have “as much exposure as humanly possible,” Stanley said the landlord would be open to compromises such as restricting the sign to certain operating hours. The digital sign would also include self-dimming capacities so its brightness would decrease as it gets dark. Earlier this fall, city council

viewed a video of the proposed signage, which showed the names of tenants in the mall and a trailer of a movie being shown at the Landmark Cinemas. Stanley said the landlord has no intention of showing movie trailers on the digital sign, noting the image was included to show the capability of the signage being proposed on the building. The names of tenants would be ◗Plaza Page 4

Downpour doesn’t stop this Santa BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

Mother Nature may have unleashed heavy rain and wind on the region on the weekend but it didn’t dampen the spirits of folks attending the Christmas Parade of Lights. It’s estimated that more than 5,000 people attended the CIBC Christmas Parade of Lights in Downtown New Westminster on Saturday, a day that featured heavy rain and winds of up to 30 kilometres an hour in the Lower Mainland. “This was one of the most challenging events we have ever had to deal with from an operational standpoint,” said Douglas Smith, executive director of the Hyack Festival Association. “The high winds made it extremely difficult for our partners to set up in Hyack Square. Unfortunately, our sponsors and community partners were unable to engage with the community to the extent we had planned. Overall, however, some of the new features we introduced as part of the postparade activities definitely hit the mark, including the feature performances by AJ Woodworth and We Three Queens.” Despite the inclement weather, New Westminster proceeded with its annual Santa Claus parade. Parades in some other communities were canceled because of the weather. “There was never any consideration given to cancelling the parade,” said Mayor Wayne Wright in a press release.

“All the parade participants deserve a lot of credit for braving the conditions. It didn’t dampen their spirits whatsoever. It says a lot about our community pride and commitment. Thank you to the parade organizers and event staff for their hard work and diligence under very difficult circumstances.” Nearly 60 entries took part in the Christmas Parade of Lights, which capped off with an appearance by Santa Claus on the Hyack Festival float. Following the parade, the City of New Westminster and the Downtown New Westminster Business Improvement Association unveiled a new 38-foot tall artificial tree as part of the tree lighting ceremony in Hyack Square.

‘Sustainability is everything’ for New West BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

The City of New Westminster wants to make sure it’s making decisions in a sustainable way. The city has embarked on the Envision 2032 process that will lead to the development of an integrated community sustainability plan, which will be a document that uses a “sustainability lens” to inform and guide the city in the future when considering various plans, policies and projects. “Sustainability is everything,” said Mark Allison, a senior planner with the city. “It is social, cultural, it’s economic, and it’s environmental.”

The City of New Westminster recently kicked off the Envision 2032 process with a Let’s Talk Sustainability event. “We are not trying to go back into mud huts,” Allison said. “We are trying to maintain a high quality of life.” Mayor Wayne Wright said New Westminster’s population is expected to grow to 100,000 in the next 20 years and the city needs to grow properly. Allison said New Westminster is “bucking the provincial trend” and seeing a growth in the number of children who reside in the city. “We are going to have thousands more kids in New Westminster,” he said. “We are going to have tens of thousands of seniors.

So we have youth and seniors to look after in the next 20 years. We have to get started now.” Allison said the planet’s supply of resources is decreasing at the same time the demand for resources is on the rise. To kick off the Envision 2032 process, the city gathered speakers with a variety of perspectives on sustainability for the Let’s Talk Sustainability event. New Westminster resident and environmentalist Patrick Johnstone said cities are part of the solution to the problems facing society. “They are not the problem. They are part of the solution,” he said. “We have to think about how we are going to approach these

decisions.” Johnstone said people want to lead comfortable lives, but in order to do that they have to start living sustainably with existing resources – while resources are still available to support the type of lifestyles they want. Although individuals can make changes to reduce their need for products like energy, he said people need to work together to have a real impact. “We can’t individually solve this problem. We need to solve these problems as a society,” he said. “We need our leaders to make the real choices, to make the hard choices. We as individuals we are not all ◗Envision Page 8

Parade: Mix of elements “The tree is certainly going to be a major attraction for local residents and visitors during the holiday season,” Wright said. “I think everyone was really impressed with the size and quality of the tree. It will certainly be a big attraction this month.” In August, Hyack representatives appeared before council to discuss a proposed Christmas Parade of Lights Festival that would see the Santa Claus Parade of Lights replaced with a festival that includes a month-long musical light show timed to music, a giant Christmas tree, entertainment, food, a photo booth and a marketplace featuring vendors and artists. It’s believed that the event could be expanded over time to include other locations in the downtown aside from Hyack Square. This year ’s event retained the annual Santa Claus Parade of Lights but also incorporated some of the aspects that had been proposed as part of the new festival.

City mourns loss of youth advocate, acrobat BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

Tributes are pouring in from near and far for Aaron Johnson, who is remembered as “the man who soared.” Johnson, 61, passed away suddenly in Royal Columbian Hospital on Nov. 29, surrounded by his immediate family. A former Canadian national trampoline champion and coach, Johnson is considered a pioneer in trampolining and tumbling in Canada. His many accomplishments include coaching the Shasta Trampoline Club and running the detached youth program in New Westminster. “He was incredibly dedicated to helping young people and really reaching out, in particular, to kids who were troubled and at-risk and needed help and guidance,” said city administrator Paul Daminato. “He was really there for those kids.” In the years before the youth centre opened in New Westminster, Family Services of Greater Vancouver’s detached youth program provided services to New Westminster youth. “He worked very hard to scrape together grants and whatever funding he could to make that work,” Daminato said. “He was determined to have services for those kids.” Darryl Scheelar, a former student, posted a tribute on Facebook stating that Johnson was not only a loving father to son Travis and daughter Sarah and husband to Valerie, but he was an amazing and giving mentor and coach to hundreds of athletes and performers of both trampo-

line and circus. “I met Aaron in 1981, and through his excellent guidance and instruction, I went on to win several national titles. But that pales in comparison to what he did for me after my trampoline and tumbling career was over. In 1987, Aaron was still running the detached youth program for Family Services. He decided to take a chance on me, and hired me as a youth counsellor at their drop-in centre. Four months later, he hired a young girl named Kristina von Ilberg, and she and I hit it off. We ended up getting married three years later, and having two beautiful children together. So, not only did Aaron give me the skills and building blocks to be successful in my career as a stunt performer, but he also gave me the family that I have today. Our hearts go out to the entire Johnson family at this time.” Daminato, who worked in the city’s parks and recreation department when Johnson helped coach Shasta, recalls him setting up trampolines, moving equipment around and doing whatever job needed to be done. “He was always a real positive, enthusiastic person, just a pleasure to be around,” he said. The Alberta Gymnastics Federation website states that Johnson had a reputation of being “one of the highest bouncers in the world, was the Canadian senior trampoline champion in 1975 and 1976, was the first Canadian to compete a Triffis, which is a twisting triple somersault and retired from competition in 1976 because of injury.

Johnson was a coach of the Canadian national team from 1979 to 1990.

sional division of circus performers. “Aaron was exceptionally kind and caring; passionate and incredibly skilled, both as an athlete and a coach; most of all, he was extremely humble. He is greatly missed by many, from all around the world. Indeed, his contributions to the local and international acrobatic and circus communities are immeasurable,” said an obituary posted on the Vancouver Circus School website. “Aaron is survived by his wife of 34 years, Valerie; children, Travis and Sarah (Kevin); grandson, Noah; mother, Alice; sisters Darlene and Karen; brothers Arvid and Dana; and his dog, Abby.” A memorial service was set for Wednesday, Dec. 5 from 2 to 5 p.m. at Centennial Lodge in Queen’s Park. Joanne Edey-Nicoll, the city’s former assistant director of parks, culture and recreation, said Johnson worked with the city on a number of partnerships that benefited local youth. When the city first developed its youth services program, it partnered with Johnson and Family Services of Greater Vancouver on youth programs. “Aaron was a really strong advocate for disadvantaged youth,” she said. “He really gave those youth that didn’t have a voice a voice.” Shasta Trampoline Club also partnered with the City of New Westminster for its programs. The club is based in Queen’s Park Arenex. “Aaron was instrumental in setting up that partnership as well,” she said. “He looked for ways to make partnerships work for the betterment of youth.”

He has said he favours a cap-and-trade plan that would provide government revenue, but that is not a tax. At least it wasn’t when the Conservatives favoured such a scheme in their party platform. If it wasn’t then, it isn’t now. But why let the truth get in the way of a good smear – unless ethics matter.

Think carefully before ditching well-loved city references Dear Editor:

I’m all for preserving and/or revitalizing the historic parts of New Westminster and, contrary to Bob Rennie, do not think that we should let go of the moniker “Royal City.” Of course, it is not necessary to include it in every promotion aimed at drawing the younger demographic to our history-rich city, but to discard it would be to discard our history. And besides it’s been a while since I got to agree with the mayor. Re-branding, as Bob suggested, to something more contemporary like NW (for $500,000 or less) would be a disaster; it would only take a week or two until the name degenerated to “n’dub” as the high school is referred to by its student body.

When I moved to Sapperton, my mortgage papers referred to the neighbourhood as “working class,” and I thought, “That’s me – I’ll fit right in!” I loved the archaic reference. So when a particularly utilitarian looking condo building was built at the entrance to the Sapperton SkyTrain station in 2009, it was entirely befitting of the neighbourhood and its history that the building should be named after a tool: The Anvil. But the proposed saviour of our revitalized downtown area, the golden magnet for business and commerce being called “Anvil Centre” is about as pedestrian as I can imagine. The city better ante up some of that borrowed money to Google, otherwise a lot of people are going to be getting off in Sapperton and wondering where the heck they are.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Letter inspires response Dear Editor:

Re: ER trip leads to anger, Letters to the Editor, The Record, Nov. 28. In response to the letter written by L. Luyten, I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt and say they were having a very bad day and needed to vent. I hope they are feeling much better now. That said I am sorry they felt their visit to Royal Columbian Hospital emergency was not pleasant but I am still wondering how seeking relief from pain led to an attack on our non-European citizens. Here are some points that Mr./Ms. Luyten may have forgotten to think about: ◗These elderly patients talking in their native tongues may very well have been born here or lived here for decades. My grandmother was born on the prairies and never learned to read, write or speak English. Still, she and my grandfather worked unbelievably hard, paid taxes and helped make this country something to be proud of. ◗Perhaps these elderly people, like Mr./ Ms. Luytens, did not want the specifics of their ills broadcast through the waiting room and decided to spare the rest of the patients their complaints. Or maybe they just didn’t want nosy parkers eavesdropping on their conversation. If these elderly people have just come over from another country maybe they are working harder than can be imagined by caring for their grandchildren while their children work. ◗ Other cultures and countries that are non-European have a rich history of wonderful skills and arts. Really they do. Through my life, I have tended to dismiss remarks made after any phrase such as “I am not a racist, BUT …” However, I did throw caution to the wind and allowed myself to read what the writer had to say. I am not angered by L. Luyten’s letter. If anything, I feel pity and embarrassment. What could have been an interesting firsthand account of a trip to an emergency room turned into an inappropriate diatribe against our fellow citizens. I have also been in wretched pain,

and at the time I doubt that I could have described the people around me and all my surroundings as well as they had. I might have been surrounded by Asians, Caucasians, the Queen of France, or little green men, and I wouldn’t have cared. In conclusion I thank the writer for reminding me to never make snap judgments, jump to conclusions, or treat the person sitting next to me with anything less than common courtesy and respect. Diane Adams, New Westminster

Food bank boosters

Dear Editor:

“Sleigh bells ring, are you listenin’, on the Fraser, the Native’s glistenin’, a beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight, cruising for the food bank in the twilight.” This past Sunday, Doug and Helga Leaney, owners of the paddlewheeler, Native, decided to give Santa and the food bank a helping hand from the wheelhouse, by launching their “Cruise for Food,” with food and cash donations directed to New Westminster food bank. Those of us lucky enough to take the plunge with them enjoyed an outstanding, family-oriented afternoon, entertained by the Sharon Young Trio, augmented by a children’s rhythm and percussion section during enthusiastic carolling. Our water landscape included eagles, a curious harbour seal and dozens of seagulls drawn to our wake. Youngsters and oldsters alike skipped along the deck enjoying the wind and the spray and a chance to see the Royal City from a new vantage. We hope that this spontaneous paddlewheeler plan will turn into an annual event. Helga, Doug and their staff, our generous corporate neighbours, are selflessly doing their part to improve the lives of others. Yes, Captain Irving, there is a Santa Claus and he will live on in the hearts and minds of all those folks on the Fraser that paddled on the Native’s “Cruise for Food” food bank fundraiser!

We need to vote for them of course, but we also need to support them when they make decisions that are sometimes not popular. We need to educate them, we need to educate ourselves.” Johnstone believes the city has “some power” because it has its own electrical utility. He also voiced opposition to the concept of an incinerator saying it may make economic sense at this time but isn’t a sustainable way to make electricity. “I could also go on at length about how burning garbage for electricity is no more sustainable than burning coal is,” he said. Jerry Dobrovolny, director of transportation for the City of Vancouver, spoke about how land use and transportation planning can help create sustainable communities. Vancouver city council recently approved the Transportation 2040 plan, which updates that city’s 1997 transportation plan. At the Let’s Talk Sustainability event, Dobrovolny gave a brief overview of the goals and accomplishments in the City of Vancouver’s transportation plans from the 1970s to today. He noted that Vancouver determined in 1997 that there was no room to build more roads or create more room for cars so it had to accommodate growth through transit, cycling and walking trips. As part of its 1997 plan, Dobrovolny said Vancouver set targets for 2021 that included seeing less than 60 per cent of trips being done by vehicles. He said Vancouver hit its 2021 targets by 2009 – without tolling or road pricing

Darlene Gering, president of the 2012 Colwood, which received $4 million in B.C. Seniors Games and former president federal funding, developed a community and CEO of the Burnaby Board of Trade,

spoke about social innovation initiatives undertaken at the board of trade. She said social innovation refers to new ideas that resolve existing social, cultural, economic and environmental challenges for the benefit to people and the planet. Gering noted that the board of trade’s actions included developing new commitments (such as environmental sustainability) and consulting with members about issues they viewed as being most important. Learning that homelessness, immigration and early childhood development were top concerns from a social sustainability perspective, the board of trade was able to engage businesses in those areas and partner with other community groups on projects. “They are actually a part of the social fabric of the community and have taken a role in making it sustainable,” she said about businesses. Virginia Weiler, chair of Vancity Credit Union’s board of directors, encouraged people to think of credit unions as a community asset that can help with creating long-term vision for the community. She noted that credit unions invest in organizations that improve the social fabric of members’ lives. “We believe that for people to truly prosper they need to be connected to a vibrant, healthy community that is sustainable over the long-term,” she said. “Our vision guides us to consider not only how we spend our profits but how we earn them.” For more information about the Envision 2032 process, visit editorial@

Council moves to ban shark fin soup in city BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

The City of New Westminster’s plan to ban shark fin products in the Royal City has the support of some local residents. Following Monday night’s public hearing, council unanimously supported a shark fin regulation bylaw that will prohibit the sale, trade or distribution of shark fins or products derived from shark fins in New Westminster. A Victoria Hill resident encouraged the

city to ban the sale of shark fin products in New Westminster, voicing concerns about the “absolutely disgusting” practice of finning. In addition to concerns about the environmental impacts of killing millions of sharks annually, many people have voiced concern about the practice of cutting off sharks’ fins and throwing the fish back into the ocean to die. “New Westminster should be a leader in this,” the man told council at Monday night’s public hearing.

Theft suspect arrested A 26-year-old man has been charged with 18 counts of theft under $5,000, 12 counts of mischief and one count of break-and-enter after a string of incidents in the Sapperton area of the Royal City. Richard Johnson McAfee was arrested on Nov. 29 and the charges were approved by Crown counsel on Nov. 30. The incidents surround a series of theft from vehicles, mischief and break-and-enter incidents. The arrest comes after a collaborative effort by the New Westminster Police Department’s patrol division, street crime unit and the forensic identification unit. McAfee remains in custody until his next court date on Dec. 4.

Several B.C. municipalities have already approved bylaws that ban the sale of shark fin products, and others, including Vancouver, Burnaby, Richmond and Surrey, are expected to consider the matter in 2013. “Our sharks are being finned to extinction,” said resident Melissa Balfour. “It is very inhumane what they are doing.” Balfour told council that she would be “so proud” if New Westminster led in the movement to ban the sale of shark fin products.

According to a recent staff report to council, shark fins are primarily used to make shark fin soup in Asian restaurants, but other products are also available such as dried, canned, cooked, wet and frozen form at some markets and health stores. Staff stated that one local restaurant serves items containing shark fins, but management told the city that the ban wouldn’t have a major impact on its business.

school. “When I was younger, I had trouble with school – reading, communicating with people, making eye contact,” she says. After almost two months of testing, she was diagnosed, which was a big relief for her because it explained her struggles, she says. Charlotte came to NWSS last year to attend the school’s Ace-it program, which gives students a head start on training for the trades. She took the cooking program and wants to be a pastry chef. “My ultimate dream is to work with wedding cakes,” she says, smiling as she looks at her stunning gingerbread creation in the cafeteria at the high school – before it was shipped off to the Hyatt for the competition. Pastry isn’t her only interest. She also ponders a career working with children. On the weekends, Charlotte works in the daycare at her church and said she socializes better with younger kids. Charlotte also speaks on autism panels with other people who have autism to help raise awareness about it. “Unfortunately, I was born when not a lot of people understood it,” Charlotte says. She is also learning sign language. “It’s an easier language for me because of my autism,” she says, signing the words. Charlotte says there are Asperger’s traits that have helped her in the gingerbread creation. “I’m very patient and detailed,” she said. Those are her “high skills,” she adds. Charlotte was inspired to build the gingerbread house after her mom gave her a cookbook on the topic for her birthday in September. She started building the piece under the guidance of Stephen Schram, culinary arts instructor at the high school. Schram helped with the heavy lifting – rolling the pastry, and just generally “coaching” her through the process. Charlotte made all of the “people” – whimsical figures in winter mode with sweaters and snowballs and big smiles. One girl lies flat, doing a snow angle on the “snowy” ground, while her dog obediently sits beside her. Another set of kids are having a snowball fight. There are festively decorated Christmas trees, Santa (of course) and his sleigh. Schram was the one who suggested Charlotte do the Hyatt contest. He was her

cooking instructor at the high school. “I knew that she liked pastry,” he says. “She’s really dedicated and focused. Part of that might be the Asperger’s. She gets really fixated on things.” Charlotte would work on the house all day, at times. “I had to tell her to take a break,” Schram says. Charlotte’s mom Sue Banning also noted her daughter’s efforts on the project, which took three weeks to complete. “There was fondant from one end of the dining room (to the other),” she says, laughing. But it was worth the mess. “It was really nice to see her throw herself into something she was really passionate about,” Banning says. All the hard work paid off. Charlotte won a $300 scholarship and a gift certificate for $200 at the Mosaic Bar and Grille in the Hyatt contest. The Hyatt’s Gingerbread Lane event, which features all of the gingerbread entries in the various categories, is open to the public until noon on Dec. 27.

Santa’s coming to town – and the stage Vagabond Players set to bring Dear Santa to the stage in New West BY MARELLE REID REPORTER

There’s no need to lure him with milk and cookies. Santa Claus is coming to town Dec. 6 and he’ll be entertaining anyone with a ticket to see the Vagabond Players’ production of Dear Santa, at the Bernie Legge Theatre starting Dec. 6. This family-friendly comedy takes place at the North Pole, where Santa’s workshop is abuzz with pre-Christmas preparations and the elves under pressure because of a supply shortage. “It’s about the spirit of Christmas and regaining that, and learning how to do and share and be with others,” said producer Ann Webster, who has been a member of the Vagabond Players for more than 25 years. The company has been producing plays, musicals and pantomimes continuously for the past 75 years at the Bernie Legge Theatre in Queen’s Park. On average, the Players produce five plays each year. Though the group has steadfastly produced live theatre for over seven decades, the popularity of theatre in New Westminster has waxed and waned in that time, Webster noted. She herself got involved after she finished high school and became a member of the company in the early ’80s. “In 1982 a lot of people in their 20s were out of work, so we ended up at the theatre going, ‘Well, what are we going to do?’… so we ended up at the theatre doing a ton of stuff.” The ’80s and early ’90s saw many people of all ages involved in the local theatre scene, Webster said, and at that time the group

These days, however, theatre seems to have dropped off the radar for the majority of people under 40, she noted. “I think technology has just taken a lot of the attention from a lot of the arts programs and things because I find so many more people are involved with what’s online, with social media, and I think we’ve sort of forgotten how to interact with each other in person,” she said.

To counter this downward trend, the Vagabond Players want to encourage high school students to meet up at the Bernie Legge Theatre to both practise their stagecraft skills and learn every facet of theatre while having fun after school, said Webster. Of course, the company also wants to encourage anyone of any age to come out to see the latest play. Dear Santa, by Norm Foster, runs about two hours with a 15-

minute intermission. Jacqollyne Keath directs a cast of 16, which includes local actors Sue Sparlin (Santa Claus), Jim Bjorkes (a sleigh salesman), Faith Hurd (Yeegads/Michael Bishop), Andra Louie (Mrs. Bishop) and Suzanne Biehl (Phooey the elf/ choir). The curtain rises Dec. 6 to 23, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m. with Sunday matinées at 2 p.m. and a bonus Saturday matineé at 2 p.m. on Dec. 22.

The Bernie Legge Theatre is located in Queen’s Park, behind the Arenex. Tickets are $15, or $13 for seniors and students with valid ID. Two-for-one preview tickets will be available for the Dec. 6 and 7 shows. To reserve tickets, call 604-5210412 or email For more information, visit

‘Red Nose’ kicks off with big weekend Holiday program first began in Quebec in 1984 and is now in the Royal City BY ALFIE LAU REPORTER

With the calendar turning to December and holiday party season in full swing, Operation Red Nose kicked off last Friday to good numbers in Burnaby and New Westminster. Operation Red Nose, which began in Quebec in 1984, sees volunteers in teams of three pick you up and drive you and your vehicle home. This is the first year the service has been offered in Burnaby and New Westminster. Chris Wilson is the local organizer who has seen the program grow in the TriCities and he helped bring it to Burnaby and New Westminster. “Our first night ever in Burnaby delivered 14 rides and New West had six,” said Wilson. “We had 53 volunteers giving up their Friday or Saturday night to make sure people got home safely. “There’s a strong demand for the service, so we’re still looking for more volunteers. Overall for the Tri-Cities, Burnaby and New Westminster, Wilson said volunteers delivered 84 rides, drove 2,687 kilometres and organizers collected $3,015 in donations during the first weekend.

That’s almost double last year’s numbers of 40 rides, 1,338 kilometres driven and $1,455 in donations collected. “We’re very excited about the first week’s numbers and are looking forward to the rest of the campaign,” said Wilson. The free service will be available for the rest of the month on these days: Dec. 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and 31. Anybody who wishes to volunteer in Burnaby, New West or the Tri-Cities is asked to email Volunteers come from all walks of life and, in the past, have included sitting mayors and councillors from the TriCities. “We have everyone from 19-year-olds to 78-year-olds and everyone in between,” said Wilson. “It’s a lot of fun, you meet some great people and you have the satisfaction of getting people home safely.” Volunteers work in teams of three, with two driving the client in the client’s vehicle and the third following behind in their vehicle. “This makes it safe for everyone,” said Wilson. “It’s also fun because you can volunteer with friends or we’ll create a team for you.” Volunteers are asked to fill out a simple application and have a criminal record check done. To use the service, call 778-866-NOSE (6673). For more information, go to www. AlfieLau

des Arts Grace, Grit and Gusto Place we inspire the artist in everyone! AROUND TOWN



new book celebrating the achievements of Royal City women is being released in time to coincide with national Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. Grace, Grit and Gusto: Profiles of Remarkable Royal City Women is being launched on Thursday, Dec. 6 at the River Market from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The book launch features former MLA Anita Hagen, who co-founded Monarch Place, a transition house for women and children fleeing violence. A team of 26 local women worked together to capture the stories of 40 New Westminster women from the city’s past and present. All process from Grace Grit and Gusto will go to Monarch Place. Lynn Duncan, a local historian and book publisher, developed the concept for Grace, Grit and Gusto. “I discovered a significant gap in the recorded history of the lives of the first European women in B.C. and traced the problem to the fact that the women of the previous century were often only identified by their husband’s first and last names. This cultural reality was a barrier to historic reference and made the lives of these women hard to track,” she said. “I did some initial investigation and found that the only manuscripts of recorded history about the lives of women amounted to just eight typewritten pages in our local reference library. That’s when I knew something had to be done.” A press release states that the women recognized in the book include bestselling authors, Olympic athletes, medical pioneers

and political and social activists. Books are $20 each and available at the book launch or by ordering online at www.vivalogue. ca. Because of contributions from community and corporate sponsors, 100 per cent of proceeds will directly benefit Monarch Place.

Literary travels

The New Westminster Public Library is taking its services on the road. On Saturday, Dec. 8, the public library will be taking part in the Artisan Market Holiday Fair that’s taking place at the River Market. The library invites residents to drop by the market between noon and 5 p.m. and check out the latest Christmas magazines, seasonal paperbacks and children’s books. Anyone who doesn’t have a library card can sign up at the fair, by providing two pieces of identification (including one with your current address). “Stop by the River Market at 810 Quayside Dr. in New Westminster. The library will be located on the ground floor, by the escalator,” said a press release from the library. “We look forward to seeing you.” According to the press release, New Westminster Public Library is expanding its presence in the Royal City with the anticipated opening of the Queensborough branch library in February 2013.

said a press release from the Knights of Columbus. “In recognition of this anniversary, the City of New Westminster has proclaimed the week of Nov. 26 to Dec. 1 Knights of Columbus Week in the Royal City.” The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic, family and fraternal services organization that has 1.8 million members in Canada, the United States, the Philippines, Puerto Rico and several other countries.

Taking time to enjoy the holiday season HEALTHWISE



t the end of It’s a Wonderful Life, Zuzu Bailey says, “Every time a bell rings, an angel gets his wings!” These days, every time a Christmas song is played, some grownups grit their teeth. Though this is a season of celebration, for many, it comes with sadness and stress. We can easily get caught up in consumerism, cynicism, stress and gloom. What can we do to cope with Christmas and begin a New Year healthy and hopeful? We have to psyche ourselves up. The attitudes we adopt now will influence our mental and physical well-being over the holidays. This year, I resolved to begin my Christmas preparations early. On Nov. 25, I had put up the lights and the tree and already started the search for the right gifts for the kids. To get in the mood, I started playing Christmas music a week earlier. In past years, I would procrastinate while I continued to work and attend to everything else in our busy home. By starting early this time, I’ve enjoyed the sights and sounds of the season and taken the time to consider the needs of family and friends. Without

the rush, I’ve been more mindful. Of course, the acceleration of time we experience at Christmas happens throughout the rest of the year – and becomes more pronounced over a lifetime. The seasons and years pass ever more quickly; we are another year older, our life situations and relationships change, and people pass in and out of our lives. The days of our lives are fleeting. The greatest gift we can give ourselves is to be fully present. Each year, I remind my children to be mindful. With each gift they choose for one another, I ask them to consider first the needs and happiness of the other person, and with each gift they open, appreciate the care that went into it. No one wraps a present as lovingly as my sister. Unwrapping gifts from Auntie Lisa has become one of our favourite family rituals. Of course, we don’t get everything we want for Christmas. Many families cannot afford the luxuries advertised in flyers and commercials. Many people will be alone or missing loved ones. The holidays may come just when some are coping with bad news or health concerns. Since my mom’s passing, there are moments each Christmas season when I don’t feel much like celebrating and instead miss her presence in our lives. Remembering Christmases past can stir up a bittersweet mix of feelings.


At Christmastime, as with any other point in our lives, we experience a fleeting mix of what we have, what we once had and what we want. We each have to accept our cir-

cumstances, acknowledge the gifts of the past and most importantly for the moment, be present and appreciate what we have today. Let us resolve to be as present as possible, lov-

ing the good that we have and connecting with those in our lives this day. May we be more mindful of all that we do and say, eat and drink this season. Our experiences today will be

tomorrow’s memories. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician at the PrimeCare Medical Centre. His Healthwise column appears regularly in this paper.

City symphony hosts special Christmas show Show set for this Friday night at Massey Theatre A Christmas confection as colourful as the festive season is in store for families on Friday night at Massey Theatre. Again this year, the New Westminster Symphony Orchestra joins forces with the Richmond Academy of Dance to present a preChristmas concert overflowing with delightful treats. New Westminster Symphony Orchestra music director, Maestra Zhang has a sleigh full of musical gifts that everyone will enjoy, according to local arts promoter Tony Antonias. Included are many sea-

sonal faourites plus this extra-special surprise: two talented soloists from Seattle’s Pacific Northwest Ballet Company will be dancing the leads of The Sugar Plum Fairy and The Prince in excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s ever-popular, The Nutcracker. A heads-up from Antonias: “The concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday night, Dec. 7, and the Massey will likely be filled to capacity as in previous years, so come early.” As always, admission is by donation and parking is free at Massey Theatre. Massey Theatre is at 735 Eighth Ave. See www. for more information. editorial@

On the stage: An excerpt from The Nutcracker will be part of the holiday performance by the New Westminster Symphony Orchestra, taking place this Friday, Dec. 7 at the Massey Theatre.

Last chance for the guide Tough economic times are taking their toll on local organizations that help those in need. The Record will continue its longstanding tradition of publishing a Guide to Giving, which provides information about local non-profit groups where you may want to make a donation or volunteer your time. It includes a listing of non-profit organizations that help on a number of fronts, such as groups helping the homeless or less fortunate, children and animals. As December fast

approaches, many people’s thoughts are turning to the Christmas holidays. While Royal City residents are generous throughout the year, many want to do a bit more for others in need at this time. The Record will publish the Guide to Giving in a midDecember issue of the newspaper. To be included in the 2012 Guide to Giving, contact reporter Theresa McManus by Dec. 7 at tmcmanus@ or 604444-3003. Then keep an eye on our upcoming editions for the full list.

Panthers prove it at provincials Douglas women

crack college top 10 nationally


The Moscrop Panthers became the first Burnaby school to make it to the final four at the B.C. high school AAA boys’ volleyball championships. The Panthers finished in fourth place at the provincials following a fiveset loss to top-seed Fraser Heights in the bronzemedal final in Kelowna on Saturday. Moscrop took the pretournament favourite to a tiebreak following games of 25-22, 22-25, 27-25, 2325, before falling 15-12. The loss was just the second for the Panthers at the provincials. Earlier, Moscrop lost in straight sets to eventual champion Oak Bay in the semifinals at the UBC Okanangan university campus. Grade 11 power Jerome Cross was a dominant force for the Panthers from both the front and back court, and was later named a first team tournament all-star. Cross and second-team all-star setter Zach Or kept opposing teams on their toes with powerful jump serves. Moscrop senior Marcus Jung was named the most outstanding libero. The Panthers were also singled out as the most sportsmanlike team. “We’re really proud of the boys, and more importantly, how much respect the team gained,” said Moscrop co-coach Ed Chin. “The Oak Bay coaches ... said to us after our match ... about how

The Douglas College Royals women’s basketball team moved up 10th in the Canadian Colleges’ national ranking following a weekend split against the top two schools in the PacWest last week. Douglas knocked off former nationally No. 10ranked Quest University 65-58 last Friday. The following night, the Royals let slip a 15point lead at home against the No. 5 Capilano Blues before losing 60-55 on a string of clutch free throws late in the game. The result left Douglas in sole possession of second place in the women’s division with a 6-2 record just four points behind the unbeaten Blues. With eight first-year players on the squad and veteran guard Ainsleigh Mensah and fifth-years Patti Olsen and Amonda Francis, last week’s PacWest player of the week, all that Douglas is lacking is game experience. “We’ve done very well,” said second-year Douglas coach Curtis Nelson, who took over the team late in the season last year. “Our recruiting has been excellent. We have the right mix.” Freshman shooting guard Chloe Kennedy proved the point, averaging

16 points last weekend. First-year guard Adelia Paul averaged 10 points and five assists, while making just four turnovers in the weekend outings. “Our goal is to be there in March and challenge for a spot at the nationals,” said Nelson. “They want to achieve and push themselves every game.” To that end, the Douglas women will have a busy time during the December break, including a homeand-home stand against Shoreline College in Washington this week. The Royals will also take part in a tournament down south over the holidays before restarting the second half of the PacWest schedule on the road against Langara. Douglas opened this season with 60-46 loss at Langara but rattled off six straight wins before last Saturday’s close loss to Capilano. Nelson believes if the Royals can hold a team to less than 60 points, victory should be theirs on most nights. “We like our team against any team in the country,” said Nelson. “We believe defence is a key for us. … Offence comes and goes, but defence is just hard work.” Douglas College restarts its hoop season on the road against the Langara Falcons on Jan. 4.

Knights’ defence makes a game of it BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR

The St. Thomas More Knights were outmanned, outsized and supposed to be a patsy for the unbeaten Terry Fox Ravens in the B.C. high school junior varsity football final – yet, they were anything but. Despite the odds against them, it was two big plays by Fox and too many turnovers on offence that proved the difference in STM’s 14-7 loss to the Ravens at B.C. Place on Saturday. “When you turn the ball over, it’s difficult to get any momentum to come back,” said STM head coach Dave Ruzycki, who has taken the Burnaby independent school to the JV final four out of the past five years.

“The forecast was we were supposed to lose by three or four touchdowns, but we kept it close. (Fox) scored on two big plays, and one was a gadget play,” Ruzycki added. The latter TD followed a high snap on a punt that gave the Port Coquitlam squad excellent field position at the Knights’ 28 yard line. On Fox’s first play from scrimmage, eventual MVP Conner McKee hit wide receiver Dylan Foulds all alone in the end zone on a perfectly executed flea flicker play. The Ravens got the ball right back on a Tavin Grant fumble after a catch, but The Record’s player of the game, Nick Favaro, and lineman Ben Steele combined to snuff out the ensuing

Fox drive with a big stop that and two. The Knights forced Fox to punt turned the ball over on downs to deep in its own end the Knights in their and Grade 9 returner own red zone. Terell Jana ran the But that was not ball back 22 yards to the end of it for STM. “From day one, give STM first down Quarterback on the Ravens’ 28.

“Our defence, as far as I’m concerned, was outstanding,” Ruzycki said. “In all the years I’ve coached, this defense gave up the fewest points in my 30 years. But too many mistakes will kill you, and unfortunately that’s exactly what happened.” In the second half, STM got inside the Fox 10 yard line but were turned back, and late in the game a long ball from Flett slipped through the hands of its intended receiver with nothing but empty real estate ahead of him. “From day one, we’ve always been a fighting team. We never let down,” said Favaro after the game. “If we played them again, I think we could beat them. After their second touchdown, we got right back at it. ”

The wait is over: Notre Dame football players hoist the Grade 8 football program’s first Quadra Cup in 27 years after 28-26 win over G.W. Graham on Saturday.


Jugglers football program is back with banner year BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR

It was a long time coming, but “Oh yeah,” a win by the Notre Dame Jugglers in the B.C. high school Grade 8 boys’ football final was sweet. The Jugglers won their first Quadra Cup title in 27 years with a 28-26 victory over G.W. Graham Grizzlies at B.C. Place on Saturday. MVP quarterback Steven Moretto, the hero of the Canadian Little League champions Hastings baseball team, led the Jugglers with one touchdown passing and two touchdowns on the ground, including a five-yard run up the middle on a long, opening drive to start the third quarter. Moretto also ran in a key two-point conversion on the ensuing play that gave Notre Dame a 10point lead and the cushion it needed against the game Chilliwack team. “Oh yeah, once we punched that in, it became

a two-possession game,” said Moretto after the game. The Grizzlies closed the deficit to 22-18 on a tipped 15-yard touchdown pass to Gabe Mannes. But Joseph Santalucia put the Jugglers back in excellent field position with a big 26-yard kickoff return. Mario Marra then showed off his importance to the team, bulling his way down field on three consecutive running plays before finally scoring the eventual game-winning TD on an eight-yard run. “I loved the fact the kids never stopped. The fight in them never stopped,” said Notre Dame head coach Joe Garcea. “It’s a testament to the coaching. The amount of time and effort they put in for a Grade 8 program is unheard of.” Notre Dame led 14-12 at halftime on a rushing major by Moretto and a 15-yard scoring pass to wide receiver Mauro Giammaria.

Notre Dame’s Carlo Decoste was named the game’s outstanding lineman. The title banner was a big deal for the East Vancouver/Burnaby regional school that has not tasted victory in a high school football final since 1997, when the junior varsity team edged St. Thomas More 14-8 in an all-Catholic school final. The Jugglers varsity team has also been without a provincial banner since 1993. “(The win) represents the entire community – the players that played before us and those that want to come to Notre Dame. It’s for all the alumni – everybody,” Garcea said. “It’s been an amazing year,” Moretto said, adding that the sight of senior Notre Dame student supporters in the stands with their bare upper bodies painted blue and spelling out the word Jugglers said it all. “I know how much it means.”

Moscrop: Culture club will catch on ence,” said Or. The West Burnaby boys upset No. 4 Marriott 25-22, 25-18, 27-25 to become one of just a small handful of Lower Mainland schools to ever reach a provincial AAA semifinal. In 2009, Eric Hamber became the first Lower Mainland zone school in almost 40 years to earn a medal since John Oliver won a silver medal back in 1971. Hamber finished with a bronze medal. Moscrop’s fourth-place finish capped off a season of firsts for the senior Panthers. A core group of the Burnaby boys won five consecutive district league banners for Moscrop that began as bantams, before earning the school program’s first-ever Lower Mainland title this year. “It put Moscrop on the map. The culture we were trying to develop (at Moscrop), I’m hoping it will catch on,” Or said.

Moscrop won its pool in the tournament power rankings, which groups teams together based on their respective ratings in provincial polls. The No. 6-seeded Panthers defeated Mt. Boucherie in straight sets and Penticton 2-1 before upsetting No. 5-ranked Delta 25-16, 13-25, 15-7 in pool play. Moscrop then took care of North Peace in a four-setter in the championship round to move into the quarter-finals against highly-ranked Earl Marriott. “My goal was to earn some respect,” Moscrop co-coach Kim Or said of the match versus Marriott. Earlier in the season, Moscrop was soundly beaten by the Surrey school in a tournament at UBC. “It came down to a core group of Grade 12s and J.J. (Cross). They made a differ-
