Parade turns a corner

Plan for coal on agenda

Shorter, more inclusive event full of high energy



New Westminster representatives are joining forces to host a townhall meeting about a proposed coal facility in Surrey. The townhall meeting, taking place on Thursday, May 30 at 7 p.m. in the Douglas College theatre, is being hosted by BurnabyNew Westminster MP Peter Julian, New WestminsterCoquitlam-Port Moody MP Fin Donnelly, MLA-elect Judy Darcy and the City of New Westminster. Fraser Surrey Docks has submitted a project permit application to Port Metro Vancouver to develop a direct transfer coal facility that could handle up to four million metric tonnes of coal at a site that’s located across the Fraser River from Westminster Quay. Fraser Surrey Docks has hosted two open houses in Surrey, but none in New Westminster. “This is an important issue for New Westminster, particularly for neighbourhoods like Westminster Quay and Queensborough,” Julian said in a press release. “I’m glad that representatives from all three levels of government are coming together to hold this important consultation.” Organizers have invited representatives from Port Metro Vancouver, Fraser Health, the environmental community and Fraser Surrey

Overcast skies didn’t deter crowds from flocking to New Westminster for the Hyack International Parade. Although rain fell as participants and parade-goers gathered for the parade, it gave way to cloudy skies as the big event got underway. The parade included 110 entries, such as floats representing the Calgary Stampede, Portland Rose Festival, Olympia Washington Capital Lakefair and the Penticton Peach Festival. Other highlights of this year’s parade included delegations from The Royal Westminster Regiment, celebrating its 150th anniversary, and Moriguchi, Japan, which is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its sister city relationship with the City of New Westminster. “We really worked hard to get the parade heading in the right direction,” said Douglas Smith, executive director of the Hyack Festival Association. “I think we have really turned a corner with the parade.” Instead of offering a two-hour parade that loses energy midway, he said efforts have been made to make it lively for the duration of the parade. “It was closer to one-and-ahalf hours,” he said. ‘”We probably cut it back by one-half hour. I think it really worked.” Smith said organizers have also done a recruitment drive to identify new participants for the Hyack Parade.


A winning entry: Fresh from wins in parades in the Pacific Northwest, New Westminster’s float makes a hometown appearance in the Hyack International Parade. Miss New Westminster and her ambassadors waved and danced their way along the parade route. “That made a huge difference,” he said of an effort that drew more multicultural groups. “It really added to the energy level. It is achieving our goals of making this as inclusive as possible.” Gavin Palmer, president of the Hyack Festival Association, said all parade participants were juried, which helped the association improve the overall quality of the parade. “We met our stated goal to present a high-energy parade with quality entertainment,” he said.

Palmer said he was surprised by one of the parade entries. Expecting to ride in a regular vehicle, he was shocked to discover his wife Jacke had arranged for a horse-drawn carriage. “She went as Queen Victoria. She looked very regal,” he said. “It was the first time in 15 years we have had horses in the parade. Everybody knew but me. She kept it a secret. It was just awesome.” They 42nd annual Key West Ford Hyack International Parade took place on May 25, the final day of the nine-day Hyack Festival.

“The Hyack Festival is synonymous with New Westminster and it is important that we showcase our city in a really positive manner,” Smith said in a press release. “We have taken steps to update and improve every event that is part of the festival. The results, we think, are really starting to show.” “We have worked very hard to make the Hyack Festival as relevant as possible,” Smith said. “It is all about creating events that people will respond to, that resonate with people.”

Uptown comes alive

Police arrest three



The Hyack Festival Association estimates that more than 25,000 people turned out for the second annual Uptown Live event on Saturday. Uptown Live, the final event of the annual Hyack Festival, is a street party that includes music on three stages, food vendors and a family fun zone. “We are absolutely delighted with how the community has responded to the event,” said Douglas Smith, executive director of the Hyack Festival Association. “It was a fantastic day of celebration for New Westminster. It is safe to say we have an event in Uptown Live that is truly resonating with the community.” Presented by Royal City Centre and Westminster Centre, Uptown Live showcases the local indie music scene and offers interactive activities. Good for Grapes, the Belle Game and the Boom Booms were among the performers who entertained crowds at Saturday’s event. “After only two years, Uptown Live can match up against any free event in the entire Lower Mainland,” said Uptown Property Group president Bart Slotman, who has worked with Smith to establish the event. “Hats off to the Hyack Festival for their efforts.


Dancing in the streets: James Teshima and Megan Burghall danced near a stage set up outside Royal City Centre at Saturday’s Uptown Live event. The City of New Westminster can be very proud of how Uptown Live has put the city on the map regionally and helped build pride within the community. It hits the mark in terms of community building, economic

spin-offs and marketing and promoting the uptown area.” Uptown Live, said Smith, brings a cool vibe to New Westminster and draws a younger audience than what Hyack Festival events normally

attract. “It has taken on a life of its own. The city has responded to that event. We drew people from all over the region,” he said. “That event has a vibe of its own.”

Service out for 34 hours after cables cut BY STEFANIA SECCIA REPORTER

Only $20 worth of cables was stolen from underground lines, but Telus is out $50,000 to restore the wires and the lost service time. At 5 a.m. on Sunday, May 19, alarms went off alerting the Telus network of an outage in the Victory Heights area in New West, which affected 102 customers, according to Telus spokesperson Shawn Hall. Technicians were dispatched to the site at East Columbia Street and Holmes Street.

A manhole cover had been popped off and when technicians went down below, they found three cables had about two metres cut from each one, according to Hall. “We had to replace the entire lengths between two manhole covers to restore service,” Hall said. “It was a big job.” Customers had no service for 34 hours. “Our real concern is that this left our customers without access to 911 for a better part of a day-and-a-half,” Hall said. “Let alone the inconvenience of not having home service.” Hall estimates the thieves took $20 worth

of cable line, but in the end it cost Telus $50,000 to replace. “Obviously it was not worth it for the thieves to put our customers’ lives at risk,” he said. Hall said Telus is actively working with the New Westminster Police Department to track down the thieves. He is also asking anyone with information to contact the police at 604-525-5411. Metal theft was a serious problem before provincial legislation came in to help deter it, according to Hall. About 250 metal thefts ◗Cable Page 5

Three men were arrested on the 900 block of 12th Street, which is near the medicinal marijuana dispensary, N.I.C.E., for possession of marijuana on May 23. According to the New West Police Department, the street crime unit led an investigation under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and executed a search warrant that resulted in the seizure of the marijuana and cash. The men arrested, between the ages of 23 and 31, were released on promises to appear in court at a future date. Staff Sgt. Paul Hyland said the charges will not be laid until crown counsel approves them. Until the charges move forward, the police cannot give specific details or identify individuals related to the case. The charges are expected to be approved in the next few weeks. “We have to steer clear of giving too much specific information at this stage before charges are approved,” Hyland added. If marijuana is sold outside of Health Canada guidelines, it remains a criminal offence under the act, according to a media release from the police department. The guidelines state that authorized medical marijuana can be obtained by individuals in three ways: it can be applied for directly from Health Canada, they can grow their own supply, or they can designate someone else to grow it for them. “Furthermore, Health Canada has issued clear directions that while they will manage the activities of authorizations and licenses, the police will continue to investigate and enforce the provisions of the (act) where activities are not permitted under an authorization or license,” the release states. Justin Cleveland, president of the nonprofit West Coast Green Light Society that runs the medicinal marijuana N.I.C.E. Dispensary, confirmed the arrests but was unable to comment further before press deadline.

Coal: Townhall meet set ◗ continued from page 1

Docks to participate. “People in the community have concerns about the proposed coal facility,” Donnelly said. “I believe it’s important to provide a forum where these concerns can be properly addressed.” Local residents groups, environmental groups and health officials have expressed concern about the project. The Quayside Community Board has collected petitions and held a No Coal rally on the issue, and the Queensborough Residents Association recently voted to oppose coal exports from Fraser Surrey Docks. “Clearly this issue concerns many local residents and it’s one we’ve been working on for some time,” said New Westminster

Mayor Wayne Wright in the press release. “By partnering with New Westminster’s MLA-elect and MPs to host this townhall meeting, we are providing citizens an opportunity to voice their concerns.” New Westminster ’s municipal, provincial and federal officials have voiced concerns about the consultation that’s taking place for the project. “The lack of public consultation to date has been very disappointing,” Darcy said. “People of New Westminster have serious questions about this project that must be addressed.” The townhall meeting will also be web broadcast live on New West TV.

were reported in the first half of 2012, and most of the thefts happened from aerial cables and not underground. Hall said it is very unusual to have ground cable stolen. “The new legislation introduced makes it very difficult for thieves to sell to scrap dealers,” he said. “We went from having more than one (theft) a day

to a handful a month.” Hall said this year, as of the end of April, there had been 17 incidents. “We’re seeing far less of this than we used to thanks to the provincial legislation and combined with police enforcement and public awareness,” he added. “But one is too many.” The new legislation requires scrap dealers to record details about the items they purchase.

They have held a majority government since 2011. But as with every government hanging on to power in Ottawa for more than a year or two, Harper now has his own list of scandals, including Bev Oda’s taste for expensive orange juice and limo rides and Peter MacKay’s use of a search and rescue helicopter to go fishing. Harper cannot pretend to be pure

We deserve a more complete answer than platitudes and blaming the last government. Harper needs to not only mouth regrets, he needs to lead the cleanup.

B.C. teachers could fight 10-year plan IN THE HOUSE



s Premier Christy Clark prepares her B.C. Liberal government for its fourth term in power, she may be thinking she’ll be facing a political opposition that is spent, demoralized and likely about to be consumed by internal strife. But while that may describe the shattered New Democratic Party, Clark would be wise to realize opposition to her government can take the form of other entities. And that’s where a couple of public sector unions come in. Both the B.C. Teachers Federation and the unionized support staff in the K to 12 education system (made up primarily of CUPE locals) may be in a position to take job action – up to and including an all-out strike – in the fall. Clark has re-issued her idea of a 10-year contract with B.C.’s teachers and has gone a further step by formally making it her government’s position at the negotiating table. The 10-year plan was largely dismissed when Clark first floated it some months ago, but that’s because it seemed part of her ongoing election campaign

and not representative of actual government policy. But now that she has won a mandate from the voters, the 10year contract proposal has to be taken more seriously. Of course, that doesn’t make it any easier to achieve at the bargaining table. Details haven’t been made public, but I suspect the government’s proposal will include some kind of wage indexing to ensure teachers get at least the average of public sector union wage increases every year of the contract, plus some kind of guaranteed funding increase to address class size and composition issues. As well, look for the government wanting more “flexibility” to be incorporated in the system, with the argument that it will allow for savings to be realized, with those savings passed on in turn to teachers and the issues they deem most important. It will be an interesting set of negotiations, but I have a hard time believing the B.C. Teachers Federation leadership will sign such a long-term deal. The length of that contract could sap the union leadership’s power and influence. This brings us to an interesting question: will the B.C. Liberal government impose a 10-year deal if one can’t be freely negotiated? As much as some members of the government caucus might want to do just that, I doubt the

Business as usual after election Dear Editor:

After 12 years in power, the Liberal party had become arrogant and detached from ordinary people. Give credit to Christy Clarke for putting a fresh face on an old sow. She was aided by the departure of so many cabinet ministers responsible for the harmonized sales tax, B.C. rail, stadium roof and other betrayals of the public trust. However, most of the blame must fall on Adrian Dix and the NDP. Dix never showed how effective restraints protecting the environment could co-exist with a resource-based economy that creates jobs for British Columbians. The party didn’t tell us how it would counter the climate of secrecy, corporate cronyism and entitle◗Teachers Page 7 ment that had engulfed the Liberal government in

recent years. Dix’s weak response to concerns about his backdating mini-scandal made it seem like he was part of the problem rather than part of the solution. The NDP mistakenly believed that feel-good slogans and generalities would inspire confidence in B.C. voters. Finally, it didn’t forcefully advocate for electoral reform, although, unlike the Liberals, it at least supported a ban on corporate and union contributions. So now the money-power of the big corporations and media will continue to dominate campaigns – as amply demonstrated by the TV ads of the past few months. Once again, a winner-take-all governing party has all the power with 44 per cent of the vote. Once again over-paid legislators from both parties will mouth empty rhetoric in the legislature ◗Same Page 7

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Same old, same old in B.C. ◗ continued from page 6

instead of constructively debating and crafting laws that meet the needs of the people. The money-power of corporate insiders will continue to speak loudest in the backrooms of the premier’s office while the backbenchers are whipped into shape. Meanwhile, a regressive tax and userpay agenda benefiting big corporations and the wealthy will continue to worsen poverty and economic inequality. It’s business as usual in B.C. The corporate bottom line is the only value that matters. Mike Divine, New Westminster

All voices should be heard Dear Editor:

I was part of a delegation of representatives from all municipalities along the coal train route from White Rock through Surrey, and those affected by the Surrey Fraser Dock facility and resultant barge traffic from New Westminster to Texada Island last week at the Port Metro Vancouver offices at Canada Place. We were there to present them with our 400plus signed petitions, letters and a request for a meeting. Of all the posters, placards, speeches, and letters at Canada Place, the most impressive presentation came from a high school student. He and some 40 others of his generation had evidently convinced port authority to allow them to make a

presentation about the effects they saw in allowing Surrey Fraser Docks to proceed to facilitate U.S. coal exports via Canada. Alas, the port authority reneged on the promised meeting, ostensibly on the basis that the experts the students wanted to bring to the meeting were too one-sided and Fraser Surrey Docks had no experts to bring to the table in rebuttal! I am relying on his account of events but, if true, the hypocrisy demonstrated by that action not only undermines the faith that youth should have in their “right to be heard” but is also demonstrative of how the Surrey Fraser Docks so-called “public consultation” is really a “public relations” exercise – a one-sided sham sanctioned by the port authority as they ink their rubber stamp. Our local politicians here in New Westminster are to be lauded for their initiative to hold a public town hall meeting on Thursday at Douglas College with all parties invited to share their views on the issue. Even though Surrey Fraser Docks refused to have one of their open houses here, there is no reason to exclude them from a meeting we put together – both sides need to be heard, just like in a public hearing. On the assumption that the port authority attends, I am hoping this lad and his cohorts will be invited and allowed to finally make their presentation, despite their earlier shoddy treatment. By doing so, perhaps we can begin to restore the faith of the next generation in public institutions and due process.

rest should do so by the end of next month. This sets the stage for a possible confrontation between the unions and the B.C. Liberal government in the fall. Of course, it’s quite likely the government will simply impose a contract on both unions if they can’t be freely negotiated and if job action becomes problematic in schools. Nevertheless, this situation could be Premier Christy Clark’s first real test as an elected premier with a mandate. It is imperative that her government delivers its budget with its projected surplus if it wants to establish credibility when it comes to budget-making. This means there is very little money for wage increases in the education sector (school boards say there are no more savings to be found to fund wage

hikes for employees). So to get to that magic land of a balanced budget, Clark will have to hold firm against two public sector unions with their hands stretched out. Both unions no doubt expected to be dealing with a newly elected NDP government in contract talks, and therefore probably assumed they were in for an easier ride. But the upset win by the B.C. Liberals changed many things, not the least of which has to be the expectations of the public sector unions. They are about to discover the new sheriff in town is actually still the old one, but her hold on the job is much stronger now. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

courts would allow such a long deal to be imposed on a collective bargaining process (but a five-year contract may be a different story). Still, it’s clear the B.C. Liberals are intent on trying a radically different approach in this round of talks with the BCTF. Just days after the election, they bailed on the current set of negotiations, even though the union said progress was being made, in favour of shifting talks towards the 10-year plan. As for the unionized support staff, they’re looking for a wage increase in the neighbourhood of two per cent a year. Most of their locals have already taken strike votes, and Vancouver Sun education reporter Janet Steffenhagen reports the

$20,000 later – Finley on the mend


Despite the attack that happened in late April, New Westminster resident Darren Pilling and his three-year-old sheltie, Finley, are back to hanging out at work together. On April 22 at Burnaby’s Fraser Foreshore Park, Pilling and his dog went on a walk that took an unexpected turn for the worst when a large, unleashed dog attacked Finley, which later resulted in an altercation between the two dog owners. “(Finley’s) good,” Pilling said. “She’s with me at work, out of the hospital. So that’s all good.” Finley was hospitalized for two weeks because the attack resulted in her losing a tremendous amount of blood and put a hole in her stomach, according to Pilling. He said the veterinarian bills now exceed $20,000, as well. “She had four surgeries and she was resuscitated three times, which means she was close to dying three times,” he said. “The money; I’ll figure out how to pay it all back.” Finley has no fur on one of her legs and her scars underneath have healed, but she’s no longer the friendly and energetic dog Pilling knew before the attack occurred. “She’s a little more skittish compared to normal,” he said. “She’s usually super, super outgoing. She’s not quite there. I

don’t know if that’ll come back. She didn’t want to go to the house for awhile. She sleeps all day – it’s not normal for her. “I wouldn’t wish this on anybody, not even the guy who did this to us.” After Pilling’s dog was attacked, he and Alexandru Radacina, the owner of the large dog that attacked Finley, exchanged words that resulted in an altercation, during which Pilling was also bitten on the leg by the large dog. Radacina had refused to give Pilling his name or information, but a witness took photos of Radacina from behind and posted the incident on Craigslist. The police found Burnaby resident Radacina, arrested him and charged him with assault, according to Burnaby RCMP Cpl. Dave Reid. Radacina appeared before a provincial court judge in Vancouver late last week and the charges were stayed, as it was not clear who started the fight, Reid said, and the dog was not commanded to attack Pilling. The Burnaby branch of the B.C. SPCA is investigating the incident, according to branch manager, Ryan Voutilainen. He said there have been no other complaints lodged against the dog or its owner, Radacina, and Radacina is willing to comply with the city’s animal control bylaw. When the investigation is closed, the SPCA will work with the city and discuss how to move forward, Voutilainen said.

Coquitlam asks province to help mediate Bailey bridge impasse BY JOHN KURUCZ REPORTER Special to The Record

The decades-old dispute over the Bailey bridge appears to have reached its boiling point. On Monday, Coquitlam council asked the province to intervene via mediation or arbitration in an effort to ensure a two-lane bridge be built to replace the existing one-lane crossing. More specifically, the city has applied to the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development to arrange for a relatively new process – referred to as a Dispute Resolution Process – to take place. That process can play out in one of two ways, either through binding or non-binding arbitration. “It has festered for 20 years and it has created a lot of animosity between businesses that need to use that bridge, including business on the New Westminster side,” Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said Tuesday. “I’ve heard from a large number of business on the New Westminster side that are completely aghast at the current situation. They cannot fathom that we, the two governments, have allowed the current situation to persist for 20 years.” The City of New Westminster fired back Tuesday, issuing a statement suggesting the two cities, the Ministry

of Transportation and Infrastructure, complete a new, two-lane bridge by Transport Canada and TransLink September. That stance was not supported by should hammer out a deal. “We fully understand the frustra- New West council and staff.

Birthday wish will help fund epilepsy research BY MARELLE REID REPORTER

Rock on:

Taylor Ritchie, 17, is looking forward to seeing Celtic rock band Cod Gone Wild perform on May 30 at the Columbia Theatre as part of a benefit concert for the B.C. Epilepsy Society.

Taylor said. To fulfill Taylor’s wish, the Vernonbased Celtic rock band Cod Gone Wild signed on to perform along with Newfoundland’s Dave Whitty at The Columbia Theatre in New Westminster this Thursday, May 30 as a benefit for the epilepsy society. Proceeds from the event will go towards the society’s programming and research across the province. Ritchie said her daughter is looking forward to the show and is optimistic this fundraiser will help researchers get closer to finding a cure for the disorder that has so greatly impacted her life. “She knows that they may not find a cure in her lifetime, but she wants to raise money for the other kids so that one day other kids won’t have to go through what she’s gone through,” she said. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. with doors opening at 7 p.m. at The Columbia Theatre at 530 Columbia St. As well as the performance, there will also be a silent auction and 50/50 draw. Tickets are $25, available at the door, or at

A birthday is always a cause for celebration, but for local teen Taylor Ritchie, turning 17 on Victoria Day was a definite milestone. Taylor was diagnosed as a baby with intractable epilepsy, which sometimes causes daily clonic-tonic (formerly known as grand mal) seizures. “She is at a high risk for what they call sudden epileptic death, and that’s where children or people like Taylor with this type of epilepsy pass away in their sleep and they don’t know why,” said her mother, Corrine Ritchie. “So we live with that every day, not knowing if she’s going to wake up.” Taylor’s birthday wish this year was to hold a fundraiser for the B.C. Epilepsy Society, to help find a cure for the neurological disorder that can cause different types of seizures. About 40,000 people in B.C. have epilepsy, and about one in 100 will develop the disorder within their lifetime, according to the society. “There’s so many people that have no idea what epilepsy is and maybe it’ll be a good idea if many people know what it is and how to fix it,”

Journey of a lifetime for NWSS students CLASS ACT NIKI HOPE


t was the journey of a lifetime for 23 New Westminster Secondary School grades 9 to 12 students. They traveled to Japan on a Japanese government – UNESCO – Asia Pacific Foundation Canada sponsored exchange trip to Japan from May 7 to 17. “This fully sponsored trip – coined Kakeihashi (building bridges) – was made available to NWSS students who wrote a 250-word essay about why

they would like to go to Japan,” Japanese language teacher Kathleen Shannon wrote in an email to The Record. “Fifty students applied after it being advertised in the school for one short week.” There was a pre-departure reception at the consul-generals residence in Vancouver, she wrote, adding it was the students’ first practice at etiquette and wearing business attire in preparation for their trip. The trip was jammed packed and included a visit to an instant noodle factory, a chemical recycling plant in Tokyo, a takoyaki company in sister city Moriguchi, and two-night homestay with students from Hagoromo gakuen, Shannon wrote. “Students found the high school homestay visit to be the highlight of the trip,” she said.

The students were interviewed by four newspapers and participated in one of the oldest festivals in Japan. “Besides learning politeness, business etiquette, being on time, bowing, and Japanese, students learned to be kinder, gentler people as we travelled together,” Shannon wrote.

Academy is growing

Urban Academy, an independent school in Queen’s Park, recently announced it is expanding to a second site this September. The school will operate a junior as well as a senior campus in order to meet the needs of increasing enrolment. “We are thrilled to announce that we will be opening a senior campus, and are so excited about what that means for the development of our program

and our growing school,” Urban Academy’s board chair Deborah McKenzie said in a media release. “We are so passionate about educating our students in the most engaging and creative way possible, and now we have a gorgeous new campus to support our senior students.” The new campus is located at 601 Eighth Avenue (the corner of Sixth Street and Eighth Avenue) in New Westminster. The school also recently announced it is offering seven full-ride, two-year scholarships for students demonstrating strength in academics, the arts and service, according to the release. Students entering grades 8 to 11 are invited to apply for scholarships valued at up to $12,000 per year. “With our second site, we

finally have the space to be able to give back to a community that has so supported us,” McKenzie said in the release. “We would like to offer the opportunity for students who may otherwise not be able to afford specialty education with wonderful teacher support, to be able to experience excellence in education and change the course of their futures.” For more information and details on Urban Academy, visit The scholarship application deadline is May 31. Founded in 2001, Urban Academy has more than 120 students from junior kindergarten to Grade 12. Is something happening at your school? Do you have an item for Class Act?

City police chief inducted into Order of Merit

For his exceptional years of service, Chief Const. Dave Jones was inducted into the Order of Merit of the Police Forces at a ceremony in Ottawa on Friday (May 24). The New Westminster police chief was recognized as a member of the order by Dave Johnston, Governor General of Canada, at the Governor ’s residence, Rideau Hall, according to a press release from the police department. “You don’t enter a job to receive, or look for, awards, but it’s always nice to receive the recognition,” Jones told The Record in a phone interview on Monday. “You set out to do something well and I guess when you receive some recognition for it … you always appreciate that type of thing.” There were 47 members from across the country inducted into the Order. Members are typically recognized for their years of exceptional service at the local or regional level of

policing, according to the release. Jones began his career with the New Westminster Police Department in 1982 as a volunteer with the reserve police section. In 1986, he became a fulltime officer and continued to move through the ranks until he was promoted to chief constable in 2011. “The City of New Westminster is very proud of Chief Const. Jones and his well deserved investiture as a Member of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces,” said Mayor Wayne Wright, in the release. “As a member of the NWPD for over 25 years, Chief Jones has dedicated his career to keeping the citizens of our great city safe. His continued leadership and vision on issues of public safety is highly valued by myself and the rest of city council.” During his more than 25year career, Jones worked in a variety of sections, including patrol, major crime, special operations, drug, community services, and street crime.

Women Business

Starting a business is no small task. But as the 21st century progresses, more and more female entrepreneurs are embracing the challenge of starting their own businesses.


The following are a few tips for women looking to start their own business. • Seek out a mentor. Many female entrepreneurs have blazed the trail you are about to embark on, and such women can prove an invaluable resource as you begin your journey. Find a female business owner you can connect with and ask her for any advice she can offer. • Have an airtight business plan. One helpful hint is to act as if you are pitching yourself. Look at your business plan and ask if you would invest in yourself. Ask yourself the questions you would ask a fellow entrepreneur if he or she approached you with the same business plan you just developed.There’s no harm to be done by using every resource at your disposal, especially your own business savvy and experience. • Don’t expect to finance the business entirely on your own. Unless your business is going to be especially small, you’re going to need capital to start your business. If you think you can finance the business on your own, you might want to reconsider. A business loan or investors can help you plan for the unexpected. If you attempt to go it alone, open your business and then find you need a business loan, the lending institution might find your brand has already been damaged and is less likely to succeed.That can make it harder to secure a business loan.Though it’s possible to finance your business entirely out of your own pocket, it never hurts to partner up with a bank or a handful of investors. • Rely on your support system. Many women with business experience might feel they need to prove something to themselves when starting their own business and need to do so entirely on their own. While that’s great motivation, underestimating the value of your support system, including your spouse, children and even your mentor, is a mistake. Rely on these people who all want you to succeed, and turn their support into extra motivation.

Celebrate being a successful business woman in New Westminster!

Chaya Katrensky

Dublin Castle Neighbourhood Grill

Dublin Castle Neighbourhood Grill’s continued success is largely due to Chaya Katrensky. Less than three years ago, the savvy businesswoman acted on her dream of being an entrepreneur when she came across the amazing location and collaborated on a “restaurant makeover” project to open Dublin Castle Neighbourhood Grill. Chaya, AKA Lady of the Castle, has consistently fostered leadership through her commitment to friendly service, great food and wonderful atmosphere – thus creating a winning recipe. That’s due to her management style, one which she describes as: “Leading by example, I believe the most effective way to achieve your expectations is to be them and set the standard. I enjoy a democratic environment where there is effective and healthy communication between management and employees. Everyone should feel like and see how they are part of the big picture.” The wealth of expertise and knowledge she has gleaned over the years comes from her time at Canada Safeway, where Chaya was promoted as the youngest female manager in Canada, at that time. “It is there that I developed great leadership and business skills though their corporate training curriculum,” adds the Kitsilano Secondary School honours graduate and Langara College business and accounting student. This self-motivated entrepreneur believes her ability to problem solve, as well as excelling in customer service, has helped her tremendously in her career. Over the years, Dublin Castle Neighborhood Grill has amassed many accolades. Voted in the top 10 Best Burgers in Metro Vancouver by The Vancouver Sun and 2013 Diners’ Choice Award Winner by Open Table, Chaya says it always comes back to “food/atmosphere/ service, consistency in all three areas are the keys to success.” In addition, as a member of B2B-NOW (Business to Business – Network of Women), Chaya is part of a dynamic, locally-based group of women who own businesses and provide support for each other as well as to the community at large. Chaya and her friendly team invite you to join them for the best of the best – delicious local fare in a trendsetting atmosphere.

Signs to watch out for include: they are in your pocket, they are loose and not cutting food well, they are starting to make your face appear old and your mouth appears to be dropping, you are experiencing painful gums and sores. Maria will ensure that if your dentures need replacing that your new ones will conform to the changes that your face has gone through over time. Your best guarantee, besides regular checkups, is to avoid smoking, grinding your teeth, and ensure your general health and oral hygiene are good.

Kathy Plante “You’re number 1” when you team up with local real estate agent Kathy Plante when buying or selling your home. Kathy left the corporate world to study for her real estate license at UBC Sauder School of Business, and then joined Sutton Group – West Coast Realty in 2010. “I switched to real estate after a rewarding career as a marketing manager at Telus,” says Kathy. “Focusing on our customers’ needs was the fundamental principle for our marketing and sales efforts, and it’s exciting for me to apply what I learned there in the world of real estate. That, and teamwork, are key.” Kathy recognizes the path to success in this highly competitive industry includes offering the best possible service tailored to each individual client’s best interests and needs. She describes her role as having four dimensions: consulting, marketing, negotiating and project management. “Real estate is a service industry… I truly believe that my customer’s needs are my #1 priority. Every purchase or sale - no matter what price point – is a big deal to my clients, and thus is a big deal for me. When my clients are happy with their transaction, I feel that I’ve made a worthwhile contribution. That’s how I define success.” Teamwork is centered on the partnership formed between Kathy and each of her clients. She then draws upon her extended team of other professionals to deliver superior service. Mortgage specialists, home stagers, photographers, home inspectors and other specialists are brought in as required by her client’s situation. Continuing education is another priority. “I regularly attend courses at the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, my brokerage Sutton West Coast, and other organizations to upgrade my skills and stay informed on issues that affect the market,” she adds.

Roe Gabriel

Dr. Salima Shivji

Queen’s Park Dental A really good and caring dentist is not only someone who provides consistently stellar services, but someone who is willing to place their patients’ well-being above all else. That is what Dr. Salima Shivji, an associate at Queen’s Park Dental, does each and every day. The 1995 dental graduate from the UK immigrated to Canada in 2002. In 2004, Salima completed a second dental degree with honours. She received an award for excellence in clinical restorative and pediatric dentistry. She believes the family-centred practice’s strength lies in that: “We are a well established, skilled, professional and very friendly team that have been together for many years.” Salima values the trust that her patients place in her. Salima’s focus is on building long-term relationships, where her patients look forward to seeing her as much as she personally enjoys educating and treating them. Salima also helps young kids develop a positive dental attitude by giving talks and demonstrations in preschools. However, she credits the whole team for its success. “We take the time to listen and we are kind and compassionate, which are essential qualities to help patients navigate through their dental work with ease and comfort,” she says. “Our goal is to get to know each of our patients well so that we can help them always have a positive experience with their dental visits.” Salima is dedicated to continuing education so that she can provide her patients with the most up to date procedures and technology in the dental field. With recent office renovations, we now offer digital X-rays which will reduce radiation exposure by over 80%, improved comfort dental chairs, and TVs with headphones for your viewing pleasure. The dental practice’s dedication doesn’t end with its patients; the Queen’s Park Dental team is also committed to the community.

With more than 130 years in Canada and five decades in New Westminster, St John Ambulance (SJA) has set the bar for the highest standards of excellence in first aid and CPR Services. As a branch manager, Roe Gabriel understands the importance of SJA’s services to residents and the community at large. For more than 25 years, Roe has volunteered for various charitable organizations and comes with a wealth of expertise and education. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Arts and a strong business management background from working for large corporations such as Bell Canada and the Royal Canadian Mint. “I was in the St John Ambulance Brigade in Australia and I am now in the New Westminster Brigade being a first aid attendant at local events,” says Roe, adding the organization has been around internationally since the year 1160A.D. “We have long term instructors that have taught first aid for 20 years or more, and we have some fresh faces as well.” In addition, SJA plays an integral role in society by offering innovative programs and products such as first aid supplies and equipment such as AED’s (defibrillators). Roe firmly believes the key to its continued and lengthy success lies in its professional, highly trained and dedicated instructors, excellent quality products, and friendly staff. “We focus on AEDs (Automated External Defibrillators),” she says, adding she likes to empower staff and help them develop and grow. “These are life saving pieces of first aid equipment that every public place should have including offices, schools, shopping malls and sports fields. 2000 people a year in B.C. die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest, which could be saved using an AED.” In addition, Roe says, the SJA continually updates its courses in order to keep them current with any changes in first aid techniques, as well as in WorkSafeBC regulations and the Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation recommendations. Over the decades, the organization has received many accolades and awards. Recently the New Westminster St John Ambulance Brigade Superintendent, Jun Cadiente, was honoured with the coveted Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award for his outstanding service to the community. Roe is also very active in local and charitable circles. She is a volunteer first aid attendant with St John Ambulance Brigade, New Westminster, as well as at the local ESS (Emergency Social Services) group and the Elizabeth Fry Society.

Thai street food comes to New Westminster

“Quick and easy” is what most people want when they dine out these days, says chef Angus An, owner of awardwinning Maenam Thai restaurant in Vancouver. But they also want flavour, and An’s Longtail Kitchen in New Westminster’s River Market delivers on all levels. An brings Thai street food from the water taxis of Thailand to the shores of the Fraser River. Market visitors will be able to sit on the restaurant’s patio, and enjoy crispy chicken wings, rich curries, smoky grilled hen, tangy pad Thai, steaming mussels and succulent fried oysters.

“New West is an up-and-coming area,” An says, during an interview at the riverside restaurant, which is located in the space that formerly housed Fathom, a fishand-chips shop. “I think there is enough people in New West, there’s enough things happening in New West that it could work.” An says River Market owner Mark Shieh urged him to open a restaurant in the market a couple of years ago, but it wasn’t the right time for An. When the offer came up again, An says he was ready, and he saw the potential in New Westminster. “I read that people who live in Vancouver, 64 per cent of their income goes to their mortgage, and their average income is only $64,000, so people are really starting to be priced out of Vancouver,” An says.

Quick flavour: Chef Angus An, owner of award-winning Maenam Thai restaurant in Vancouver, recently opened the Longtail Kitchen in New Westminster’s River Market, bringing Thai street food to the Fraser River.

“If you just sit here on a sunny day, you become convinced that it will work,” he says looking out toward the river on a grey afternoon. “It’s beautiful here, and it’s nice to have something to reach out to the people who are not only in New West, because I believe New West is kind of in the middle of the Tri-Cities, Surrey, Richmond, Burnaby.” An’s plan is to open the restaurant for lunch during market hours, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and then operate it as a pop-up restaurant in the evening. The space will be transformed into a private-event restaurant, where either An, or other chefs, could host a dinner. “They could do anything they want – not just Thai ◗Longtail Page 24

Dorothy Beach honoured with lifetime award


Sat u r day

to the provincial election, the retired MLA was doing live blogging on the Globe and Mail’s website and commentary on CBC on election night.



ongtime New Westminster resident Dorothy Beach has received an award in honour of her 100th birthday. Beach, a lifetime environmental and agricultural advocate, has received the Harold Steves Award for lifetime dedication to the preservation of farmland. The award was presented by its namesake, Harold Steves and Farmland Defence League campaign director Donna Passmore. “Like Harold Steves, Dorothy began advocating the preservation of farmland long before the agricultural land reserve was created in 1973,” Passmore said in a press release. “As a board member of the Society Promoting Environmental Conservation, the Citizens Health Action Network and the Fraser River Coalition, and as board member and volunteer for a vast number of environmental causes and campaigns, Dorothy has been an inspiration to several generations of British Columbians.” Passmore noted Beach spoke at the Agricultural Land Commission’s public hearing in Langley in 2010 at the age of 97 and appealed to commissioners to save Langley’s historic Hudson’s Bay Farm so it wouldn’t become “another agricultural casualty” of the Gateway project.

The Royal Westminster Regiment’s book has received another accolade. For King and Country: 150 Years of The Royal Westminster Regiment placed third in the annual historical writing contest sponsored by the B.C. Historical Federation. “We are delighted that the quality of this book and the significance of its subject matter have been recognized,” said Honorary Col. Karen Baker-MacGrotty. “It is a tribute to all of the people who worked tirelessly to make this project a reality and to all the men and women who have been part of the regimental family throughout its history.” The book, which was written and published in New Westminster by Vivalogue, previously placed third in the 2013 Lieutenant Governor’s medal for Historical Writing competition. A press release noted that it was produced in recognition of the 150 years of services that The Royal Westminster Regiment provided in the County of New Westminster, which extends from Burnaby to Boston Bar. The book can be purchased at www.vivalogue. ca or 604-666-4375.

Stem Cell Activator

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of selfrepair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. !Women looking for anti-aging help! We all want to slow down aging.

No guarantees in life

here is an old saying that there are only two guarantees in life – taxes and death. And while some of us may find ways to evade paying taxes,

none of us will find ways to escape dying. Whether it be the end of a long, fulfilled life or one shortened by illness, each of us has the power

to decide how we wish to live until that time. What matters to us? This is where advance care planning becomes important. By identifying before hand what your values and beliefs are, questions like, “Will I be hooked up to a labyrinth of machines or undergo complex surgeries requiring tube feedings?” become less relevant, and the focus shifts to, “What gives my life meaning and will this intervention support it?”

Every day, hundreds of families across the country are faced with this same dilemma – what would mom want? How would dad react? Add to this stress the need to answer these questions in less than three minutes and in consultation with other family members and friends. Not a very pleasant

thought, is it?

Advance care planning forces us to have those difficult conversations with those we love now, rather then during stressful, traumatic times. It provides patients with comfort, knowing that even when they are unable to communicate their wishes, someone they love and trust can do it for them. For family and friends, it provides peace of mind that the decisions they’ve made are the right ones. So what does this all mean for the health-care system? In the U.S., the issue has become pressing for financial reasons.The soaring cost of health care is the greatest threat to the country’s longterm solvency, and the terminally ill account for a lot of it. Twenty-five per cent of all Medicare spending is for the five per cent of patients who are in their final year of life, and most of that money goes for care in their last couple of months which is of little apparent benefit.

Almost all patients nearing the end of life know their ultimate fate. Yet they – along with their families and doctors – are often unprepared for the final stage. In a recent multicentre Canadian study, titled ACCEPT, many elderly patients at high risk of dying had thought about and spoken with family about the types of life sustaining treatments they would want or not want, but that information had not been shared with their health-care professionals.

Advance care planning can help patients and families navigate the emotional waters of living well and dying well so they can begin to say “good-bye”, “I’m sorry” and “I love you” before it’s too late. But advance care planning is for all adults. We can all benefit from having these difficult, personal conversations. The long-term benefits are immeasurable. Patients whose families experience trauma in the last days of their life often deal with depression long after their loved one is gone. The

ripple effect is tremendous and often ignored.

Fraser Health is recognized nationally for its pioneering work in promoting advance care planning; having a formal program for eight years with monthly education and information sessions for health-care providers and the public. An Ipsos-Reid survey released in March 2012 showed that residents living in the Fraser Health region had the most positive results compared to the rest of the country. For most of us, medicine is there to fight death and disease. We are constantly deluded by a fantasy of what medical science can and cannot do. Many of us live as if death is an option. It is time we remember that people die only once, and we need to have those hard discussions so they and their families can prepare for what is to come. Cari Borenko Hoffman is the project implementation coordinator for Advance Care Planning at Fraser Health. For more information, visit www. advance-care-planning.

Offers break for caregivers C

ommunity members are choosing to live at home longer and this can create challenges for family members who sometimes require a break from their caregiver role. Fraser Health has developed a Respite Hotel to reduce the potential for admission into acute care and to provide relief for caregivers in as timely a manner as possible. The Respite Hotel places an emphasis on customer service, just like a real hotel. Clients are referred to as guests and they will “check in” for a stay rather than be “admitted.” According to Fraser Health, the model allows for more flexibility than the traditional respite model, with no minimum stay and

a significantly reduced prebooking period. The eight-room Respite Hotel is located on the third floor of Queen’s Park Care Centre in New Westminster. The hotel will provide a home away from home for community clients whose family caregivers require a break from their caregiver role.The Respite Hotel offers flexibility, with no minimum stay and a shorter pre-booking period, and regional access, so individuals known to Home Health from anywhere within Fraser Health can book a room. The short-stay service supports guests who would typically register for stays of one to two weeks.

so they can continue to provide care for a family member who is able to remain at home rather than go into residential care. The Respite Hotel features private guest bedrooms, quiet sitting areas and a private dining room. The bedrooms feature wall-mounted televisions, light oak armoires with matching beds, night stands and over-bed tables. Guests with physical needs

have ready access to a callbell system and ceiling lifts. A wide variety of social and recreational activities are available on the second floor of Queen’s Park Care Centre, or guests can enjoy individual activities within the Respite Hotel. To book a room at the Respite Hotel, guests or caregivers should contact their local Home Health office.

The Respite Hotel in Queen’s Park Care Centre offers a place for people to stay if their caregivers need a break.

No bodychecking until bantam

Spartan makes world hurdle standard


Beginning this fall, bodychecking will not be part of the game for peewee aged hockey players in Canada. Hockey Canada wrapped up its 94th annual two-day general meeting in Charlottetown, P.E.I. on Saturday with a modification to playing rule 6.2b that removes all bodychecking from peewee levels and below within leagues governed by Hockey Canada, beginning in 2013/14. Speaking on behalf of the Burnaby Winter Club, minor hockey president Mark Rademaker said the club members support what Hockey Canada has done. “The scientific data is pretty compelling,” Rademaker said. The New Westminster Minor Hockey Association has been on board with the idea of a ban for years. Last year, the association voted to bind its delegates at the B.C. Hockey AGM, but the motion to delay bodychecking until bantam was defeated by a slim margin. “I think it’s long overdue,” said New Westminster minor president Rob Nasato. “We’ve been in favour of this for a couple of years.” The AGM, attended by more than 250 delegates from across the country, approved the bodychecking ban. The move by the

ing skills at the novice to peewee levels to better prepare players for bodychecking at the bantam and midget levels,” the release stated. Nasato added that the New Westminster association has always provided hockey school-like instruction clinics on the progression to hitting as laid down in the Hockey Canada manual and will

Mihailo Stefanovic is on his way to the World youth track and field championships. The New West Spartans athlete broke the B.C. provincial record for youth in the 110-metre hurdles with a new time of 14.21 at the Ocean Athletics Twilight meet on May 23. The result achieved a world youth standard and currently ranks the New Westminster runner No. 1 in Canada. Spartans teammate Bogdan Pavel also posted a personal-best in the hurdles, breaking the 15second mark with a 14.95 clocking. Earlier in the month, Stefanovic posted a then wind-aided 14.29 personal best in the hurdle sprint at the Valley Royals Invitational meet in Abbotsford. The International Amateur Athletics Federation world youth championships will take place in Donetsk, Ukraine from July 10 to 14. Another New Westminster athlete, Tamara Harris, helped the University of B.C. women’s 4x800m relay team win gold at the NAIA outdoor national track and field championships in Marion,

Wait for it: Bodychecking at the minor league level in Canada will be delayed until bantam following an adopted motion by Hockey Canada delegates at its annual general meeting in P.E.I. on Saturday. national body resulted in the Pacific Coast and B.C. associations taking the bodycheck question off the agenda for their subsequent AGMs. Hockey Canada took the premptive move following a growing body of research that bodychecking increases the frequency and severity of injuries, particularly concussions. Evidence compiled on a B.C. government fact sheet suggested children under

the age of 14 are especially vulnerable to injuries as a result of bodychecking. A recent study found that in Alberta, where bodycheckingwasallowed, injury rates were 3.3 times higher and the frequency of concussions was almost four times higher for peewee-level players than in Quebec, where there is no bodychecking allowed. The delegates included Hockey Canada board of directors, officers, life

members, associate members and representation from all 13 branches, as well as from councils that oversee female hockey, junior hockey, minor hockey, senior hockey and hockey development. In addition to the rule change, Hockey Canada formed a work group “to build a mandatory national checking and instructional resource program to support the progressive implementation of check-

Old habits a stumbling block for new Salmonbellie system BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR

New Westminster was outquicked by the Victoria Shamrocks in its Western Lacrosse Association home opener on May 24. The senior A Salmonbellies held the lead for a brief 27 seconds before falling to .500 after a 10-7 loss to the Shamrocks at Queen’s Park Arena last Thursday. Despite the difference of just three goals in the final score and three shots on goal by the visiting Victoria club, New West didn’t appear a dangerous threat to take the game away from arguably the team to beat in the seven-team loop this season. Victoria took a 2-0 first period lead on the first two of three power-play goals by National Lacrosse League Calgary

Roughneck teammates Jeff Shattler and Scott Ranger midway through the stanza. The Salmonbellies had a glimmer of greatness early in the middle period, when Jordan McBride sparked a three-goal spree, with his first of two goals in a fivepoint night, in the opening minute. Milan Gajic, with his first career senior A goal, and rookie Jeff Cornwall, with a highlight behind-the-back marker going hard to the net, gave the home team a brief 4-3 lead. But Shattler knotted things up with a low shot off the ensuing faceoff that beat Salmonbellie starter Neil Tyacke from the left side. Victoria outscored New West 4-1 after that with the three game stars, Shattler, Ranger and Corey Small accounting for all the

goals. “We definitely want to improve. It’s not enough,” said Shattler after the game. “We got a real good shot at (a Mann Cup) this year.” Few could argue after Victoria answered the third period with three more goals to hold a 10-4 lead before the ‘Bellies scored three in a row with Tyacke on the bench for an extra attacker. “Our defence is our core. We want to put up over 10 (goals) and if we do, we should win most games,” Shattler said. “We want to finish first. It’s huge in the playoffs and I really think our team is capable of (winning a championship).” If the Salmonbellies are going to have anything to say about challenging that outcome, they will have to pay more than lip service to new head coach Steve

Goodwin’s system. “We want to play upbeat, uptempo. That’s the identity we want to have,” said Gajic. “Victoria’s going to be a good team, but we’ll be good, too. … I just think we have to get used to it. But getting rid of old habits can sometimes be a struggle, Gajic added. After a fast-paced opening period that saw plenty of end-toend action and almost 40 shots, the two teams settled into a more deliberate game stategy for the next two periods, with Victoria basically pressing while New West appeared more comfortable to hang back and defend. “It’s a process. We want to see progression and as long as we are progressing, I think we’ll be all right,” Gajic added. On Sunday, New Westminster ran into a Maple Ridge team with

young legs and an emerging superstar named Curtis Dickson, and wound up on the losing end of a 13-9 encounter. The former New Westminster junior led all scorers with a ninepoint outing, including five goals, three coming in a 5-1 first-period start for the Burrards. Similar to Thursday night, New West allowed Maple Ridge to build a 7-2 advantage midway through the second period before clawing its way back into the deficit with four straight goals, including the first two goals of the season from No. 2 overall draft pick Logan Schuss. The Burrards made the ’Bellies pay on the penalty kill, scoring on five of eight opportunities with the extra man. Dickson accounted for three of the man-up markers. ◗Bellies Page 31

Salmonbellies shocked by Thunder in extra time up, stopped 42 New West shots on goal, including all 11 in the extra time. Jeremy Bosher led the junior ’Bellies in scoring with a goal and four helpers. Josh Byrne and Jimmy McBride, who sent the game into OT with his second of the game at 19:32 of the third period, both had two goals and a single assist. New Westminster trailed 6-5 heading into the final period, but Chris Nasato knotted the score minutes into the third, before Byrne and Anthony Malcom tallied 32 seconds apart to give the visitors a momentay 8-7 advantage. With the loss, New West slipped to fifth place in the eight-team loop. The two teams played again at Queen’s Park Arena on Tuesday (after The Record deadlines).

By this time, fans will know whether last week’s overtime loss to Langley was for real. The New Westminster Salmonbellies slipped to 4-4 last week following a 13-9 overtime loss to the Langley Thunder in B.C. Junior Lacrosse League play on May 23. With the win, the 5-1 junior A Thunder remained in second place in the weekly Subway national rankings. Buoyed by the presence of fourth-year junior A star Reegan Comeault’s first game in the lineup this season, a number of Langley’s up-and-comers also played key roles in the win. Comeault garnered four points in the win, including two goals on the power play. Call-up Johnny Pearson,

who currently leads his intermediate A team with 15 goals in five games, rippled the twine four times, including the go-ahead 9-8 tally in the third period and two more in OT. Second-years Brett Dobray and Brendan Mykle-Winkler also added six and four points, respectively, for the Thunder. Dobray collected his third hat trick of the season, tying the score 8-8 midway through the final frame with his third goal of the game. Mykle-Winkler had a pair of goals – one coming late in extra time. New West’s Frank Scigliano made 36 stops in regulation time, but was beaten four times on six shots in the 10-minute overtime. At the other end of the arena, Spencer England, a former Salmonbellie back-

Honest answers to your real estate questions.

Q. We own a newer home in

Derrick Thornhill

Queens Park. We understand this heritage neighborhood attracts families keen on original homes. Will this affect the value of our home when selling?


Although Queens Park may be a wonderful heritage district, many modern families can’t live without large closets and an ensuite washroom. These are more commonly found in newer homes. As years go by, our expectations and creature comforts are rising. It may take slightly longer to sell a modern home in any historic district but your value will not be affected. For the right buyer it may actually help your home’s value. The next owner will be able to walk the neighbourhood on a warm summer night and return to an air conditioned environment for a good night’s rest. Try doing that in a 100 year old hot water heated heritage home.

We own a home with a basement suite. It was there when we bought the home in 1996, we just never used it as a rental. What would I have to do to comply with city regulations so it’s an asset when we sell?


Great news! Nothing. The City of New Westminster has grandfathered all suites that existed before 1998. You need only confirm this acknowledgment with the City. This fact will not only increase the value of your property by at least 10K, but more importantly it will increase its ability to sell. Furnish the suite with inexpensive or borrowed furniture to help a buyer see the potential for a steady monthly income stream.

or most people, their home is their single largest investment. To make the right purchasing decisions, homebuyers need to ask the right questions, find reliable sources of information, and take the time to plan and research. B.C. homebuyers can get a head start on this process at, where the provincial Homeowner Protection Office, a branch of BC Housing, offers a range of information and resources for those considering a new or resale home purchase. Resources include the HPO’s 38-page Buying a Home in British Columbia: A Consumer Protection Guide, which steers B.C. residents through the purchase of their next home. The guide’s checklist recommends that homebuyers: • Make a list of their household’s needs and wants to guide their search. • Make a realistic budget for their home purchase, including the down payment, mortgage, closing costs and moving costs. • Engage their own real estate salesperson. • Check out the builder, including licensing with the HPO, past references and professional organization affiliations. • For a custom-built home: obtain a written contract that lists all aspects of the work to be done, the work schedule and all costs; ensure the contract includes coverage for new home warranty insurance; and review the contract with a lawyer. • For any home purchase, receive a written contract that details exactly what they are buying, the price and when payment is due. • Consider having the home inspected by a home inspector or engineer. • For a strata property, read the bylaws, rules, meeting

minutes, and any other pertinent information (Form B Information Certificate) before making an offer to purchase. • For a resale home, determine how much time, if any, is left in the home warranty insurance coverage. • For a brand new home, verify that home warranty insurance is in place, the warranty provider and the expiry dates. • For a strata property that required building envelope renovations, confirm if the renovations were done by a Licensed Building Envelope Renovator and if building envelope warranty insurance is in place. • Review the contract documents and Disclosure Statement. • Have a lawyer review any documents (including the offer to purchase) before signing them. • Make themselves familiar with what is covered in their home warranty insurance policy and what they must do to keep the warranty in effect. • For a strata property, determine home warranty insurance expiry dates for common property and the individual unit. • For owner-built homes, obtain a copy of the Owner Builder Disclosure Notice. • Keep copies of all correspondence related to the home warranty insurance and any claims made. The Consumer Protection Guide also addresses topics such as: consumer protection for B.C. homebuyers; purchase options (including strata, new and resale); affordabil-

ity and financing; the role of realtors, lawyers and notaries; how to check out a home; the purchasing process; home warranty insurance; and a glossary.
