Farewell to a friend and hero


Local New Democratic Party politicians are grieving over the loss of federal leader Jack Layton, who succumbed to cancer early Monday morning at the age of 61. “Of course, I am so deeply saddened by the news of Jack’s passing today. I’ve lost not only a political leader but I’ve lost a friend,” said Dawn Black, New Westminster’s MLA and two-time MP. “It seems somehow that the rain reflects how I’m feeling.” Black said she first met Layton shortly

after she was elected to the House of Commons in 1988, when Layton was on Toronto city council. The two worked closely in 2006 when Black was re-elected and Layton was leading the party. Black said Layton’s rare enthusiasm and positive attitude were assets that will be sorely missed in Canada and the NDP. “The country has lost such a positive force – a man with such energy, such incredible optimism. When I think about Jack, I think about his optimism,” she said. “He would say to us in caucus, ‘Don’t let them tell you it can’t be done. Don’t let them tell you it can’t be done. It can be

done.’” As for the future of the party, Black said it only needs to look to its roots and Layton’s hero, Tommy Douglas, to find its direction again. “He often quoted Tommy Douglas in all the work he did. The values that Jack espoused were the values of social democracy and the values of the New Democratic Party,” she said. “I think the party will continue, but there is only one Jack Layton. There’s no question about that.” In a farewell letter to the party and all Canadians, Layton recommended the party hold a leadership race in early 2012.

Fin Donnelly, MP for New WestminsterCoquitlam and Port Moody, said he is both shocked and crestfallen. “He was an inspiring leader. He was an amazing individual, and I think he is a real Canadian political hero because of what he’s done over the last almost-decade as leader of the New Democrats in terms of building an amazing movement from the ground up,” Donnelly said. Donnelly said Layton had a “vision of an inclusive, caring community in Canada.” The two became acquainted when ◗Layton Page 3

In 1988, Dr. Brenda Horner assumed ownership of the landmark eye centre. Today, patients have an all-female team of five more dynamic and professional optometrists to call upon - Dr. Shainul Waljee, Dr. Nelly Kim, Dr. Jessica Chang, Dr. Abigail Asirvatham, and Dr. Ruby Tse. Each provides comprehensive eye examinations, to diagnose vision problems and eye disease, to treat eye infections, injuries and allergies, and to enhance vision with the latest in contact lenses and eyewear. Every doctor in the practice caters to patients of all ages, and each offers a variety of skill sets and areas of special interest. When asked to describe her thriving business, Dr. Horner says: “We are progressive, thorough, caring, and experienced. Our patients have always been our focus”. This savvy businesswoman is proud of her stellar team of optometrists, opticians, and assistants. The entire team is committed to ongoing education, which allows them to always offer the latest developments in vision care.

Besides ensuring their patients are well looked after, Family Eyecare is very committed to our community. Members of the team can be seen at most of New Westminster’s popular events, and are always willing to offer a helping hand. As well, many of the doctors and staff have participated in eyecare missions to Third World countries, including India, Malawi, Tunisia, Ghana and Mexico. Why is this talented group so involved? Dr. Horner says the rewards are great. “We are committed to helping others enjoy a full life enhanced by clear, comfortable vision. Getting to know our patients and their families, along with the knowledge that we have helped them to see well, is very satisfying and special.” For more information, call 604-522-6929 or visit

On the campaign trail: Federal NDP leader Jack Layton with local MPs Fin Donnelly (centre) and Peter Julian (right) stumping in New Westminster during the 2009 byelection. Donnelly says Layton is a “Canadian political hero” for his leadership of the NDP. Layton died early Monday morning after a battle with cancer. “We can sincerely mourn his passing and take the best that he showed us. … That’s the best way to remember him, take his advice and engage and build a better country.” In his letter to Canadians, Layton also urged others with cancer to stay optimistic about

healthier days ahead and to treasure every moment. He paid tribute to the young and urged them to meet the challenges of the future. Layton closed with words for all Canadians that are now becoming iconic. “My friends, love is better than

anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world,” he wrote. Layton will be given a state funeral on Saturday in Toronto. – with files from Jennifer Moreau

Mystery hero saves local resident’s life BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER

New Westminster resident Fred Chadwick doesn’t remember it, but someone saved his life last month and then disappeared before he could even be thanked. Chadwick, 62, was about to hop a bus uptown on July 15 when he went into cardiac arrest. The next thing he remembers is waking up at Royal Columbian Hospital with tubes coming out of him. “It’s just a complete blank,” he said. “It was quite a shock.” But even before the New Westminster fire department and paramedics responded that day, an off-duty firefighter, out walking with his two young daughters, had jumped into action. “When we got there, we were directed onto the bus by the bus driver. We found two individuals doing CPR,” said Capt.

Bruce Zelter. “Obviously it was pretty frantic at that point in time, so we didn’t have a whole lot of time to gather information from them.” Zelter, along with New Westminster firefighters Chris Berube and Jason Lange and B.C. Ambulance paramedics, took over and went to work on Chadwick, who had no pulse and was not breathing. “We used the defibrillator, and we were successful in that capacity in restoring heart rhythm,” Zelter said. Once Chadwick was en route to Royal Columbian, Zelter questioned everyone around for details. The bus driver, who had been watching over the mystery hero’s daughters during the rescue, was the only one who had talked to him. “I asked who that individual was, and (the bus driver) said he was an off-duty fireman,” Zelter said. “I was looking for this guy, and he was gone.”

Chadwick has since had double-bypass surgery and, despite a little soreness from his stitches, is feeling much better. He is now totally committed to changing his diet and getting in shape, but he still has no idea who saved his life that day. “I want to thank the guy if we ever can find out who it was,” he said. Chadwick’s wife, Cheryl, agrees. “I just want to thank him, because without him, Fred would have died. I just can’t believe that a guy, walking with his two daughters, would stop and help out.” she said. “He took that extra care to see the commotion and come over. To me that goes beyond duty.” John Hatch, New Westminster division chief of safety and prevention, sent out a group message to all the fire chiefs in the Lower Mainland, but no one seems to know who the off-duty firefighter was. Zelter said it’s quite possible the off-

duty officer would be eligible for a lifesaving award if he were to come forward, and New Westminster firefighters want to thank him as well. “He took control of the situation and did, from what we saw, a pretty good job. The fact of the matter is, it was the early onset of the CPR that provided a successful outcome for this gentleman,” he said. “We are really happy that his training came to the forefront and the fact that he stepped up. He should be pretty happy with the outcome, as I’m sure the individual is. A job well done.” Zelter said the incident highlights the importance of everyone having up-to-date training in life-saving skills. “If people would engage themselves a little bit in these kinds of actions, first aid and CPR, they’d be amazed at how much they can help out in these kinds of situations,” he said.

On the scene: Integrated Gang Task Force officers were on the scene at McBride Plaza on Monday, where two men suspected in a break-and-enter in Delta were arrested.

Task force arrests two men BY BRENT RICHTER REPORTER

Two men were arrested Monday following a police takedown in New Westminster. The province’s integrated gang task force made the arrest in the parking lot of McBride Plaza around 11:30 a.m. Police say they fol-

lowed the men to New Westminster after a reported crime in the 7200-block of Fairfield Place in Delta. “Shortly after 10 a.m., members of the uniformed gang task force were patrolling Delta-Surrey when they responded to a break-and-enter,” said task force Sgt. Shinder Kirk. “As a result of responding, two males were arrest-

ed in New Westminster and taken into custody. At this point, the investigation is ongoing.” Kirk said it is too soon to say whether the men are gang members or are known to police. The gang unit will respond to any call for service if they are nearby, Kirk said. “We’re police officers first and foremost regard-

Program reaches out to new Canadians Volunteers sought to mentor new immigrants


The Community Immigrant Mentorship program is on the lookout for newcomers and not-sonew-anymore immigrants to New Westminster The program, offered by Family Services of Greater Vancouver, pairs established immigrants (mentors) with newcomers, immigrants or refugees. Launched in January 2010, the program has been fine-tuned to better meet the needs of its participants. “We started with a leadership program,” said facilitator/community liaison Maylen Crespo. “It changed to a mentorship program.” The first mentorship program required a sixmonth commitment for mentors and newcomers.

noted that they’ve gleaned a lot of helpful information from their visits with the newcomers. Guests have included representatives from government (federal, provincial and municipal), and police, health, library and recreation services. “Every time it is a new session, I learn something new,” said Crespo, who immigrated to Canada 10 years ago. Newcomers who participate in the program have to set a personal goal that they want to accomplish during the four months they’re involved with the program, whether that’s

becoming more active in the community, exploring the city or volunteering. They also have to agree to share their experiences and knowledge with others, which could be something as simple as helping to make others aware of good places to find cheap meals. “They have to do a practicum,” Crespo said. “They have to share information they have learned. The mentor will be assisting them with all of this.” In addition to those weekly sessions, the newcomers and mentors meet to decide how often they’ll

meet and the sorts of things they’ll do to help the newcomers become active members of the community. Crespo said people who have been mentored through the program have said they have an increased sense of belonging in the community. The mentors, having once been newcomers themselves, enjoyed sharing their knowledge and experiences.

Layton hands the torch to young Canadians

Any good politician knows there are “My friends, love is better than anger. two ways to rally a crowd: with anger, Hope is better than fear. Optimism is finger-pointing and an us-versus-them better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll battle cry; or, with the promise of better change the world.” things and a brighter future Within hours of his death, for those who believe in their this final paragraph of his collective power to change. THE RECORD letter was being quoted and Jack Layton chose the latre-quoted in media and across ter, wrapping up his final social networks like Facebook and “speech” – an emotional letter to Twitter. Canadians and his fellow politicians It is easy, especially for those who released shortly after his death on feel disenfranchised from the world of Monday – on a high note.


politics, to believe that what happens in Ottawa isn’t important, that their vote doesn’t matter, or that they have no power to make change. But Layton’s message, clearly, is just the opposite: believe in your cause, and you can change the world. In a few short sentences, Layton passes his torch to a younger generation, telling young Canadians specifically that they have a critical place in building the future: “I want to share with you my belief in your power to change this

country and this world. There are great challenges before you. … Your energy, your vision, your passion for justice are exactly what this country needs today.” There’s no partisanship here. No campaigning battle cry or us-versus-them finger-pointing. It’s a much simpler message than that: become involved, be committed, find solutions. Layton tells young Canadians: “I believe in you.” Now, will they believe in themselves enough to heed the call?

Tensions mounting for the Liberals IN THE HOUSE KEITH BALDREY


his has been a summer of quiet discontent for B.C. Liberals. Not much of that discontent has been made public, but Barry Penner’s sudden and unexpected resignation from cabinet is the first evidence of the tensions that are mounting behind the scenes. Penner was being pressured by the B.C. Liberal party to sign his nomination forms and to get out and recruit a volunteer campaign team. With a new baby in the family, he had decided he wouldn’t be running again. But Premier Christy Clark’s insistence on getting her party ready right now for an election call forced his hand. He told me it would be disingenuous of him to recruit friends to work on his campaign if he wasn’t planning to run. So he took the extraordinary step of quitting cabinet. But it was the way he did it that raised eyebrows: he issued his own news release to reporters, and he caught the premier, the government and the party completely by surprise. This was not the kind of move by an MLA who was happy with

what’s going on in the party. And Penner is not alone. I’m not sure if anyone else will quit, but I know of at least a handful of MLAs who have spent the summer issuing loud grumbles on the barbecue circuit about the direction of the government and the party under Clark’s lead. They are concerned about what they see as a lack of a game plan for the government, and they are nervous about the prospect of a fall election that could end in disaster. Some think there is a not-so-subtle attempt to deny them their own re-nominations. Clark has talked about creating a “jobs agenda” but has provided no details about what that really means. She has said the legislature will resume sitting in October, although it’s unclear how heavy a legislation package will be introduced. And she has announced she will travel to China and India in November. It will be a trade mission, and to hear her talk about it you’d think she was the first Canadian politician to discover that area of the world. Clark has been criticized for appearing to govern by photoop. Her brash call for swift justice in the wake of the Stanley Cup riot now looks opportunistic and in fact simply highlights the problems of a clogged court system that suffers from, among other things, lack of funding from her government. She keeps talking about her

Brow-beating unnecessary Dear Editor:

Re: Hells Angels at 12th Street Music Festival, The Record, Aug. 17. It takes a bigger man to apologize, and a smaller one not to accept it! My apology was published a week before this article brow-beating an oversight in regard to a booth being present at the 12th Street Festival (one booth out of 107). My apology was sincere and based on my recognition of an oversight. The comment from Mayor Wright attaching a Kelowna incident to 12th Street is ridiculous and suspect of political grandstanding. It has brought negative attention for the city, from here to Regina. I can understand the need for a public position on the issue due to the citizens who had com◗Liberals Page 7 plained, however, the malicious manner in which it

was written and presented is over the top. Yes, I heard complaints about a few things – loud music which many enjoyed and the cost of pony rides, however, complaints are common in any event. At no time did Mayor Wright, Coun. Bob Osterman, or anyone for that matter, approach me at the festival and request this booth be asked to leave. Their level of hindsight equalled mine. At no time have I been called by this newspaper, Mayor Wright, or a “shocked” Coun. Bob Osterman for my comments. This leads me to believe the recent article and accusatory comments after the fact are typical of political smearing. As for Chief Dave Jones’ comments, I take his concerns seriously as well as his letter to the police board. I have great respect for our police chief and have commended Dave Jones on many occasions, ◗Motivated Page 7

and as well the police on the street. The points he mentioned were valid and constructive and not said in the same malicious vein as others. If our elected officials and their backers fear the possibility of me running for a right-wing position on council, then these political comments may be just that … political. However, if not they should be progressive and lobby for the good they themselves have brought to the city, and not bring attention to a single negative oversight by a very community spirited citizen. “Accept the fact that some days you’re the pigeon, and some days you’re the statue.” I have, and will still enjoy the great festivals New Westminster is known for.

Noise advocates not ‘silly’

Dear Editor:

Re: Quit the rail-noise whining, Letters to the Editor, The Record, Aug. 17. It is now 2:28 a.m. on Aug. 17 and I am awake because the screeeeeeeeeeeech and “whine” of a train woke me around 2 a.m. I went to do a read of The Record, online, and stumbled across Eric Bradfield’s rant and his gall to denigrate the legitimate complaints being pursued by Mr. Crosty et al with the backing of Canadian Transport Agency. First, as to “due diligence”: residents purchase property under the assumption that municipal noise bylaws apply. Because they do not, amendments to the Railway Act section 95 of Bill C-11 were passed by Parliament several years ago.

The rail companies have refused to abide by the legislation and this is why the matter went before the CTA. Second, your Sea Island “solution” has some merit, but I won’t be “railroaded” out of town! There is a ban on flight landings and take-offs between midnight and 6 a.m.* Mr. Crosty and his team are only asking for a similar quiet time in our neighbourhood. Such “good neighbour” quiet times are in place all over, as I can attest having circled both Toronto’s Pearson and London’s Heathrow airports until the “quiet time” was lifted at 6 a.m. Third, when we talk about “moving the railroad,” we are only talking about moving the night-time activity either to daylight hours or to marshalling yards that already exist up United Boulevard way where there are plenty of industrial properties to act as a buffer to the residential areas. Fourth, to my knowledge, New Westminster only gets revenue from the right-of-way it owns along Front Street and that would certainly not be dependent either on the amount of traffic or the time of day it was used. In closing, perhaps the “silliness” actually resides with the railroads who make promises in a mediation process with the Quayside community and then breaks them, not citizen advocates James Crosty and Brian Allen. Perhaps the “change” required here is that you should investigate your assertions more closely so they better reflect the facts.

“families first” agenda, but as time goes on it begins to wear a little thin as her government cuts daycare subsidies and closes group homes. She’s been tagged as “Premier Flip-Flop” by some for her contortionist exhibitions on some policies (the timing of the HST vote and the two-cent-alitre gas tax, to name two). In the meantime, Clark appears to have done little to unite her team behind her. The government caucus does not meet often, and has held one retreat since she became leader. Her leadership was backed by just one MLA, remember, and that was Harry Bloy, who has been under fire for his weak

handling of the social development ministry. There are few signs anyone else in the caucus has warmed to her running the show. Of course, it is the dog days of summer right now and not much is being done anywhere. But expectations are high come the post-Labour Day period. That’s when the public starts focusing again on policies and politics, and the pressure will be on Clark to step up and prove she’s got what it takes when it comes to running a province. I’ve said before the prospects of a fall election seem to be fading. If the house does indeed resume sitting and Clark does go to Asia, it leaves precious little time for a 28-day

campaign. I’m told internal party polling shows Clark continues to lead her own party in popularity. Perhaps, because of that, she thinks she’s her party’s best and only hope for winning that election. Perhaps. But I think the bloom came off her rose some time ago, and the public now wants to see someone govern, rather than play electoral politics. She’ll have to lead by example and show that she indeed has a plan and a vision for B.C. and she better do that soon, or those grumbles in her own party are going to become a lot louder.

Survivor walks to help end cancer

Local woman raises $2,500 for the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers Stefania Seccia staff reporter

At 38 years old, Pamela Dixon only heard the doctor say she had cancer. Her mind came to a full stop, and the thoughts of what her young children would have to do with out her drowned out what the doctor had to say next. “That’s why I tell women to bring in a phone to record what the doctor has to say or bring someone in with you who can listen to the doctor,” Dixon said. “Because the second you hear cancer, that’s it. It’s instantly in your brain.” The New Westminster local found a lump in her breast about three millimetres big. She booked an ultrasound appointment, and within a year after first detection, the cancer grew three times bigger. “I found it myself during self-examination,” the cancer survivor said. “It was as big as an apple seed. … You know your body. We rely on mammograms, but we know when something is wrong with our body.” Dixon, now 42, is about two years away from finishing her five-year survivor cycle that’ll end her medication. She beat the cancer in a removal surgery that will have its four-year anniversary this Sept. 19, which put her through chemotherapy, hair loss and medication. That’s why Dixon was asked by her friends to do the Shopper’s Drug Mart Weekend to End Women’s Cancers on Aug. 13 and 14 for the fourth year in a row – a 60-km walk in Vancouver benefiting the B.C. Cancer Foundation. “It was awesome,” Dixon said of the two-day trek (30 km each) and camp night. “The weather was perfect. Everything about it was just great.” The weekend began with an opening

ceremony at UBC’s Wolfson Fields on Aug. 13 before the participants started their first steps. The weekend ended at a closing ceremony at the fields that started as soon as the last walker crossed the finish line. Dixon was able to raise $2,500. In all, $2 million was raised this weekend and for the past eight years, the walk has raised $20 million for breast cancer research and programming. “I can tell you that not a week goes by when I don’t hear of a friend, or a friend’s aunt or sister who is diagnosed,” Dixon said. “I am an open book, and I tell them to call me because not knowing is the scariest part.” When Dixon underwent chemotherapy, she said her hair loss was traumatizing at first, but thanks to the quality of wigs nowadays she sported every colour she could until her hair grew back. “I bought the wigs right here in New West,” she added. “I wore brunette, blond, black, red, purple. You name it, I wore it.” Dixon said on the first day a woman who walked with the crowd had just finished her fourth treatment of eight, while others had to leave to get their radiation treatment but returned to finish the walk. “There were tons of people like that,” she noted. “When I was sick as a dog I couldn’t even stand. I am so proud of the people who came and walked under those circumstances.” Dixon’s team, with friends who have done the walk since its onset, all walk together the entire way. “Once you find out you have cancer and things settle in and you know the doctor has a game plan and this is what’s going to happen, you stop thinking how your kids will survive without you, and you start to think how you are going to take care of your kids while you’re in chemotherapy,” Dixon said. “Once you get your anti-nausea pills, treatment is just fine. It’s different for every single person. They tailor your cancer treatment to you

remarkable sales, there were armloads of purchases, and most tables selling their goods were wiped clean, he said. Treasure seekers rummaged through what the 175 vendors had to offer and were treated to yachts and replica canoes paddling alongside the boardwalk. There was also a 25 per cent boost in raffle ticket sales and hotdog sales compared to last year, according to Paul Thompson, of Quayside Community Board.

Overall, this year’s festival was the most successful. The board estimates the economic generator for this event at $500,000 with the

increase in sales and activity for the River Market, Riva Café, area shops and vendors. editorial@

Across the Rockies by horseback Local woman looks back on a unique trip from the 1940s in her new book BY STEFANIA SECCIA REPORTER

A life-changing 10-day trip over the Albertan Rocky Mountains back in 1947 was the inspiration behind a co-written book, A Ride to Remember, between two old friends. An 86-year-old New Westminster resident, Lillian Caton Major, was only 22 when she went on a horseback riding adventure with two girlfriends, her then-boyfriend’s aunt and uncle, a wrangler, and 10 other horses from Jasper back to the small town of Nordegg, near Rocky Mountain House. She kept a diary of the trip, which laid the groundwork for the 90-page, 13-chapter book co-authored by her friend (who was also on the trip), Thelma Jo Dobson in Alberta. “I kept a diary, and then finally they took the diary and made the book,” Lillian said in the kitchen of her early 1900-built home, surrounded by black and white photos from the past, and her daughter, Connie Smith, and husband, Don Major. “A lot of these quotes in (there), I have in my diary or had in my head, and I wrote it down.” The trip transpired in July, and Lillian, at the time, was a bank teller. “We were planning to get married, Lillian and I,” Don added, who’s been married to Lillian for the past 63 years. “We built a house, a two-room shack, and we had plans to get married and she planned to go out on this trip. I was worried sick.” Lillian’s travels are documented in her book by black and white photos she mostly took herself. “It was quite a perilous journey they went on,” Connie said. “They went 2,000 feet (600m) up over a mountain, it was like going up 200 stairs 200 times. It was really steep, they didn’t go around the mountains. They went over the mountains.” “She always downplays it.” Lillian’s lifelong dedication to taking notes in her diaries did not change, despite travelling about 80 miles through the wilderness and reaching the highest point of up to 2,500 metres (8,200 ft.). “It was just me to do it,” Lillian said, as to why she kept diligent notes. “To keep track of every day. To keep track of what I was doing. I’ve always kept track of what I was doing

City readers wanted for favourite book list LIVELY CITY



ike to read? Here’s a chance to do even more of it with a Kobo eReader. The New Westminster public

library’s summer reading program for adults is extending the deadline on a contest they’ve been running. A number of prizes, including a Kobo, are up for grabs. Local readers simply have to tell the library their favourite books, and answer weekly trivia contests. Stop by the library or enter online at www.nwpl. ca before Aug. 31. At the end of summer, the library

will compile a list of the city’s favourite books. The library is located at 716 Sixth Ave. and is wheelchair-accessible. For more information, call 604527-4660.

Singers wanted

The Maple Leaf Singers is adding to its roster of singers and putting out an open invitation to wouldbe members. The unique six-part

Landscape views

Take in some European landscapes without travelling from home. This month, European artist Peter Csizmar’s exhibition, Landscapes, will be on display at the Gabor Gasztonyi Gallery. The opening reception will be on Saturday, Aug. 27 at 3 p.m. and the exhib-

ition will continue at the gallery until Sept. 30. The artist will be in attendance at the gallery opening. Csizmar was born in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany to Hungarian parents and grew up in Vojvodina, Yugoslavia. “The natural beauty of Vojvodina has influenced my latest work.

all my life. If I was doing something I wrote notes about it. Even having the kids, I wrote notes about them and talked about them.” Lillian still has her journals that document her life to the day, some are secured around the house to keep away from prying eyes. “I had to keep a few things tucked away so the kids wouldn’t pick it up,” she added. Besides writing in her journal, the trip itself was filled with bears, fishing, sightseeing and delicious food either plucked from the nearby bushes, packed in the boxes, or caught from the stream. “We laid on the ground at times, but no, we had tents,” Lillian explained. “We had spruce boughs to put underneath us. And

then the next day, as the book here says, we spread our spruce boughs back out into the bush so that it didn’t look like somebody had been there.” The travellers were disciplined in keeping the wilderness wild by not leaving any evidence of themselves behind – except for the tent poles. “You don’t cut your tent poles up, you leave them, because somebody else might come by who needs them,” Lillian said. “At the next camp you’ll find them because there was already somebody else.” No one gave any food to the animals either, and they never had an incident with a bear because they kept their food locked up. “We weren’t allowed to even leave crumbs on the ground and leave it,” she explained. “If you didn’t

eat all your sandwich you put it in a bag and took it back home with you.” “The book says, ‘We didn’t a leave a crumb. We ate every bit of it.’” The trip was a result of three American doctors who decided to see the Rockies by doing a trip on horseback. They drove from Iowa to Nordegg but couldn’t make the trip back. Don’s uncle took them to Jasper, where his wife met them with their car so they could drive back to America, leaving the outfitters with three hors-

es that needed to go back home. “So when they got back, what’s to do with the horses?,” she added. “Don’s aunt and uncle were left with three horses with nobody to ride them.” That’s where Lillian, Thelma and their friend Terry (who passed away in 1971) came in. Lillian and Don moved to B.C. in 1950. They first lived in Port Moody before finally settling down in Sapperton for the past 52 years in the same home, raising five children.

“She was always telling us, reading her book to us,” Connie said, adding that in the 1960s the family recounted Lillian’s 1947 journey in a car. “We had an old station wagon, packed with five kids, two parents and a dog,” she said. “We looked like the Beverly Hillbillies.” What once served as a story before bedtime for her five children, Lillian’s book can now be read by anyone who picks up a copy from a local bookstore. “It was the vacation of a

Local duo involved in Fringe musical New Westminster tea shop owner set to play lead role in upcoming fest production A pair of Royal City residents are keeping busy this summer in the Vancouver theatre scene. Both Barbara Tomasic and Lauren Bowler are involved in Goblin Market, a new musical being produced as part of this year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival. Tomasic, an instructor at Capilano University who was born and raised in New Westminster – attending both New Westminster Secondary School and Lord Tweedsmuir Elementary – is directing the production. Bowler, an owner of the Great Wall

Tea Company at River Market, will play Lizzie, of the two main characters. The musical, set in an outdoor venue on Granville Island, was written by Polly Pen and Peggy Harmon, and was based on the poem by Christina Rossetti. It explores the sexually charged fantasies of two sisters who reunite as adults to relive their childhood experiences in an imaginary world peopled by goblins. “This sensual voyage through the labyrinths of the imagination will weave an enchanting spell that will linger long in your memory,” states a press release on the production. Fringe Festival runs from Sept. 8 to 18. For tickets and more information on the VancouverFringeFestival:www.vancouver

Two artists are being featured this month at the New Westminster Public Library until Aug. 30. On the ramp, PeriLaine Nilan is displaying pen and ink and watercolours that include streetscapes and nature themes. In the reference department, pieces by Teressa

Getting rid of Morning Glory is no easy task GREEN SCENE Anne Marrison

Question: There are these climbing plants with white trumpet flowers mopping the ground and crawling up trees. I’ve tried digging and find networks of fat roots. It has been a lot of hard work. Is there any simple way to get rid of them once and for all? Dennis Chan, by e-mail Answer: This is a truly noxious, hard-to-control weed, which is sometimes called Morning Glory or Devil’s Guts. Its botanical name is Convolvulus arvensis. The roots are reputed to go down 30 feet, they store enough food for three years – and it’s said to be resistant to weed-killers. So eradication is not simple. But it can be done. No plant can survive if deprived of light and moisture over time or if being pulled constantly. A once-a-week pulling

session would ultimately remove it. A few gardeners claim to have eradicated it in two years of focused, frequent weeding. But if it’s established I’d expect three years minimum. If you can cover the infested area with black plastic for six months or longer, the roots tend to come up to the surface, making it easy to pull large quantities. A variation of the black plastic method is to cut a few slits in the plastic and douse the emerging shoots with horticultural vinegar. The black plastic method will need to be done several times, but it does weaken the weed. Plants tend to die out if made thoroughly uncomfortable. Morning Glory loves moisture. It hates being shaded out and weakens if given competition from vigorous, stronggrowing grasses. I do hope your convolvulus doesn’t come from a neighbour’s yard. If so, a deep barrier is needed to block it from your garden. A minimum of 90 centimetres deep is recommended. This can be concrete or very heavy plastic. Whatever you do, don’t

compost it. And, if possible, try not to let it seed.

Question: We have some blueberries that looked like they are developing nicely, but if you open one up it is brown, hard and dry and not edible. Gordon, e-mail Answer: Your blueberries have mummy-berry. This is a fungal disease where the berries begin to develop normally, then get hard, discoloured and drop to the ground, where they over-winter, becoming small, shrivelled and grey or black. They then produce spores and keep the infection cycle going next spring. The way to control it is to gather and garbage the infected berries and rake up any that fall on the ground. Every infected berry should be garbaged. This disease is worse when soil is wet and in places where there’s not much air movement. Many fungal infections have hit fruit this year due to the wet spring and summer. Send garden questions to

Golf is good for your joints A

fter a slow start to summer, golfstarved British Columbians are making a beeline to the fairways. But is it possible to play if you have arthritis?

Golf is an adaptable activity that increases strength, mobility and range of motion. It also improves balance and coordination and can help maintain a healthy body weight.To ensure that you’re not putting additional stress on your joints as you aim for that hole in one, The Arthritis Society recommends the following tips:

shoes without spikes.You may also want to wear cushioning in your shoes. • Take only the clubs you will use and pull your clubs on a cart rather than carrying them. You can learn more about managing arthritis online at

• Use clubs with lightweight graphite shafts to help absorb shock better. • Build up the grip size on your clubs with tape to help you hold them more easily. • Always stretch and warm up properly before you play. • Always use tees to avoid striking the ground and jarring your joints. • Use a softer ball with a higher spin rate. • Wear comfortable walking shoes or golf

Westcoast Seniors Lose weight after 50 F

As we age the body goes through different changes. For many, metabolism might just slow down.That means whatever is eaten could take longer to be digested and burned off. However, metabolism isn’t directly linked to age. It has to do more with muscle mass. It is well known that muscle burns fat. The more muscle a person has, generally the less fat there is and whatever fat is present is burned more quickly. As one ages, muscle mass may decrease.This contributes to metabolism changes, often resulting in more fat.

Get walking: Walking is a low-impact cardiovascular exercise that is beneficial to most people. In addition to cardiovascular exercise, walking can help to reduce stress.

Eat smaller portions: As we age we may simply need less food to fill us up.Try scaling back on portions. Do toning exercises: Muscle strengthening exercises can keep muscles strong, which can promote overall strength and better posture. It can also help to keep bones and joints aligned to reduce injury. Make gradual changes: Sudden changes could be jarring to the body. Plus, they are harder to accept than gradual changes. A little change here and there is most effective. Postmedia News

There are different types of fat that can affect one’s health. Visceral fat: This is the most dangerous fat that surrounds the internal organs. It can be hard to get rid of this fat without healthy eating and exercise.

We understand that moving from a long-time family home can be a heart-wrenching experience, at any age. Yet when our new residents settle in and see how much they have gained in the way of comfort, friendship, services and amenities of a luxurious resort, they begin to realize that the most important aspect of their move is that they kept their dignity, self-respect and freedom of choice. All things considered, it’s what you can't put a price on that we value most.

Subcutaneous fat: This fat is directly underneath the skin. Although it can be unsightly and cause a person to be selfconscious, it isn’t as dangerous medically and is the easier fat to remove with diet and exercise. To help ensure health and promote greater weight loss, here are some tips to employ.

How to have “the talk” with your parents C

anada’s “sandwich generation” is caught between working, raising young kids and saving for retirement, and some may have the added challenge of helping their parents during their retirement. Even though adults are used to responsibilities, it can be tough to adjust to parents needing help. But if you suspect your parents are worried or may need additional financial support for retirement, you should have that conversation with them now.

“The role reversal might be uncomfortable,” says Carrie Russell, senior vicepresident at TD Canada Trust.“It wasn’t easy for your mom or dad to talk about the birds and the bees with you, but they stumbled through it because they knew it was important. Now it’s your

turn to have “the talk” with your parents.”

proud of the responsible adult they raised.

Here are some tips:

• Talk to your parents as early as possible about their retirement. Do they have a good grasp of their sources of income and what their expenses will be? Doing this budget exercise can help you determine if everything is in order. If it isn’t, it can help you identify any shortfalls.

• Start by thanking your parents. Let them know that after everything they have done, you want to make sure they can retire comfortably. Ask if they have concerns and offer to talk them through. By framing the conversation like this, it’s less likely your parents will feel like a burden — hopefully just

New West picks up pace at home ’Bellies get back to basics take lead in Game 3


The New Westminster Salmonbellies let their shot-taking do the talking in Game 3 of Western Lacrosse Association final. The Salmonbellies kept its gloves on for the most part and took back the series advantage with a 107 win over the Langley Thunder at Queen’s Park Arena on Sunday. With the win, New Westminster took a 2-1 lead in the series, with Game 4 played Tuesday in Langley (after Record deadlines). On Friday, a late thirdperiod brawl marred a 126 win for Langley, which allowed the Thunder to even the best-of-seven series. In Sunday’s contest, New Westminster stuck to what it does best, and kept up a quick passing game even when the game went sour for it in the middle stanza. Outshot 20-7 in the second period, the ’Bellies still managed to keep hold of the lead, cashing in with four goals in the period, including back-to-back markers from rookie Kevin Crowley, who is quickly becoming the star of the series. In the first three games


The heat is on: New Westminster Salmonbellies Jamie Floris pressures a Langley Thunder ball carrier in Game 1 of the Western Lacrosse Association best-of-seven final series at Queen’s Park Arena. of the final, the rangy righthander has garnered 15 points, including nine goals, and has been named a game star in all three outings. Crowley was the game’s

first star in Sunday’s win following a seven-point performance. Another young rising star, Brandon Goodwin, potted his first WLA playoff goal in Langley on

Friday, but added to his post-season tallies with a lovely marker off the bench that made the score 3-1 late in the opening frame. “The first (goal) was a greasy rebound, but it felt

good,” said Goodwin after Sunday’s win. “Honestly, I’m just keeping my legs moving and trying to do what I can do.” ◗Bellies Page 21

Two ’Bellies slapped with suspensions Western Lacrosse Association commissioner Casey Cook suspended New Westminster Salmonbellies defender Matt Laustrup and goalie Matt Roik for their part in a late third-period brawl during Game 2 of the bestof-seven playoff final in Langley on Friday. Langley was well on its way to

tying the series at one game apiece, when Roik left his crease to slash Rob Van Beek, who had tallied the 10-6 goal for the Thunder at 17:17 of final period. It took less than two minutes before things turned ugly, with Laustrap handed a two-game suspension for leaving the bench to engage Langley’s Steve Hay.

Roik, who got the worst of it when he tangled with Langley rookie keeper Brodie MacDonald, was also suspended for two games following a gross misconduct penalty for careless contact with a game official. New Westminster was also assessed a total of $500 in fines for failure to control players, includ-

ing $150 for failure to control Roik for repeated attempts to physically engage opposing players in the altercation. Langley was levied a $250 fine for its part in the brawl. Langley won the game 12-6. The two teams play Game 5 at Queen’s Park Arena Thursday evening at 7:45 p.m.

WLA hands out awards

Perhaps not surprisingly, the Western Lacrosse Association playoff finalists, the New Westminster Salmonbellies and the Langley Thunder, dominated the league’s year-end awards. Leo Nicholson top goalie trophy winner Tyler Richards joined Salmonbellies teammates Ian Hawksbee and top defender Curtis Manning on the WLA first all-star team. Rounding out the firstteam squad were Victoria’s Rhys Duch, second-year Maple Ridge Burrard Curtis Dickson and league MVP Scott Ranger of Nanaimo. Rookie of the year goalie Brodie MacDonald, and Langley defenders Rob Van Beek and John Lintz were three Thunder players named to the all-second team. Coquitlam forwards Cory Conway and Dane Dobbie, along with New Westminster’s Ilija Gajic, were also named to the second-team all-star squad. Langley’s Rod Jensen was named coach of the year, while the Thunder’s Brett Mydske was named the league’s unsung hero. The Burnaby Lakers were handed the Ab Brown trophy as the most sporting team. Burrard backender Tyler Codron took home the Maitland award for contribution to the team and the game. Maple Ridge’s Bill Hicks, who chaired the board of governors this season, was named the winner of the executive of the year award.

TheBurnabyBarracudas won a total of 14 individual swim medals, including seven gold. Other Barracuda winners included Div. 3 boy Xavier Lau and Div. 5 girl Kelly Pickthall.

“That would be a huge step forward for us,” said Riordan at a send-off at the Burnaby Lake clubhouse on Aug. 16. “Everyone wants to keep playing and making the quarter-finals is a goal for us.” Riordan can remember a few of the great stories that have emerged out of the World Cup. The most notable was South Africa’s 1995

The Burnaby Barracudas showed its dominance in water polo at the B.C. Summer Swimming Association provincial championships in Richmond. The Burnaby club medalled in all five co-ed divisions, winning gold in four of the age-group finals at Watermania Pool last week. The Barracudas started off with a gold in the under-12 age class, beating a combined Coquitlam and Port Moody entry 6-4 in the final. Tied 4-4 heading into the final quarter, Sandro Miletic scored his third and fourth goals of the game to seal the win. Luka Maletic counted the other two markers for Burnaby. Martina Blazevic, just six years old, was one of three underage girls on the squad. Theu-14‘Cudasavenged an earlier loss to Abbotsford to win Burnaby’s second gold medal with a 4-3 score. Reuel D’Souza broke the 3-3 deadlock with the game-winner. Gareth Jones and Maletic also tallied for Burnaby. Abbotsford defeated Burnaby 9-6 earlier in the tournament. Goalie Alex Kalajdzic played “lights out,” said Barracuda head coach Patrick Geary. Riel Antes, Sade Alexis and Isabelle Joaquin played solid defence for the winners. U-16 call-up goalie Nabil Ali Mohammad held North Vancouver to just two goals in Burnaby’s 3-2 victory in the low-scoring u-18 final. Henry Mackenzie scored a pair of first-half goals, while Amanda Haas got the game-winner with just two minutes remaining in the final quarter. The win was the second over North Vancouver at the provicials. Burnaby defeated the North Shore club 6-5 to force a threeway tie after round-robin play, eventually moving into the final on a goalsagainst tiebreaker. “The two teams were very evenly matched and the game very evenly played,” said Geary of the final. The u-16 Barracudas

Burnaby Lake captain to lead Canada at World Cup BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR

When Burnaby Lake Rugby Club’s Pat Riordan leads Canada’s national team onto the pitch against Tonga in its opening game of the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand next month, there will be much riding on the outcome. For Riordan, a front-row forward, it will represent his 40th career capped appearance on

the Canadian XV. It will also be his fourth year as captain of the national squad, following Canada’s disappointing finish at the 2007 World Cup, where they returned home for the first time without winning a single match. This year, Canada’s chances of making it to the quarter-finals, a feat the Canucks have only achieved once before at the World Cup in 1991, will be equally as daunting.

Canada is in Pool A with reigning World Cup champion and No. 1-ranked New Zealand. Also in the pool are No. 4 France, along with Tonga and Japan, ranked 12th and 13th, respectively. The No. 14 Maple Leafs recently moved up two spots in the international rankings after a pair of wins over the United States. Canada must finish third or better in its pool to qualify for the quarter-finals.

Golfer loses lead in final round St. Thomas More Collegiate student Lucas Gatto was overtaken in the final round of last week’s B.C. juvenile boys’ golf championship in Powell River. Gatto, who led for the first two rounds with a five-under-par 139 at the Myrtle Point Golf Club, finished up in a tie for second place following a final-round one-over 73. Trevor Yu of Vancouver, 14, won the overall juvenile boys’ title with three consecutive two-under rounds of 70 to take the championship by a pair of strokes. Jordan Lu of Vancouver also posted a two-under

70 to tie Gatto with a 212 score. Gatto, 16, opened with a tournament-best score of 68 on the 6,923-yard par-72 course. Gatto’s STM schoolmate Kevin Vigna finished in sixth place with a fiveover-par 221. Wyatt Racette of Burnaby placed 22nd with a 233 score. Kevin Li of Burnaby also made the cut to place 39th overall. Alix Kong of West Vancouver ran away with the juvenile girls’ title, firing an eight-under-par 211.

Sixth at Games Simon


University’s Helen Crofts placed sixth in the women’s 800 metres at the World Student Games in Shenzhen, China Aug. 18. Crofts finished in a time of 2:04.40, well behind the personal-best 1:59.56 time of race winner Olha Zavhorodnya of the Ukraine. Crofts qualified seventh overall with a 2:02.98 clocking.

Cricket in ’Peg

Burnaby’s Rohan Devraj was named to Canada’s under-15 cricket team for the International Cricket Council’sAmericas tournament in Winnipeg, which began last weekend. Canada is scheduled

to play two games apiece against both Bermuda and the U.S.A.


New Westminster Hyacks alumni are all invited to this season’s football homecoming at Mercer Stadium on Sept. 23. All past players, coaches and managers, including those from the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s, are requested to attend the pre-game celebrations. The Hyacks will take on Mount Boucherie High School from Kelowna at 7:30 p.m. A pre-game alumni buffet will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Bellies: Game 5 at Queen’s Park Arena on Thursday ◗ continued from page 19

The Salmonbellies are trying to do that, too. “We just weren’t moving the ball around as well (on Friday). (Langley) is a great team. They hustle up and down the floor. We had to match their work ethic tonight,” said ’Bellies face-off man Tyler Crompton. New West took a 4-1 lead on Martin Cummings’ second goal of the game to open the second period. But Langley rallied to tie the con-

test 5-5 on Jamie Lincoln’s outside shot on a four-against-three advantage. Crowley then went to work, potting his pair in a two-minute span, including a playoff-high eighth goal. Teammates Cliff Smith and Jordan McBride also tallied their eighth goals of the post season later in the final period. Jordan Hall, who was held without a goal in Friday’s loss, scored

twice in a four-point outing on Sunday. The many onlookers who came to Queen’s Park hoping to see more of the fisticuffs that coloured Friday’s matchup did not go home completely unsatisfied. Smith accepted Todd Stockdale’s invitation late in the game and was full value for the decision. The series moves back to Queen’s Park Thursday. Game time is 7:45 p.m.

Polo: Open team also wins ◗ continued from page 20

settled for a bronze medal following a 9-8 win in overtime over North Vancouver. D’Souza, just 12, came up from the u-14s to score five goals, including the OT winner. Leo Shen, Katerina Schwab and call-up Jones also scored for Burnaby. Jenna Melton was a force on defence for the Barracuda teens. Burnaby capped play in water polo with a 12-7 win over Haney in the open category. Molly Gritchen, Danielle Robinson, Brandon Jung, Ashtyn Bevan and Kyle Yoshioka all scored two goals in the win.

Rugby: First game Sept. 14 ◗ continued from page 20

for Canada to accomplish the feat, it would take a “special effort by the boys.” And that effort can only be accomplished with an 80-minute effort from everyone, he said. “I think anyone who has bones in their body wants to be on the field no matter how gassed you feel,” Riordan said. “You know how much worse it feels to be on the sideline.” Canada flew Down Under last Friday for two weeks of preparation, including two friendly matches against Australia A and provincial champion Queensland. The World Cup kicks off on Sept. 9 and runs until Oct. 23. Canada opens against Tonga on Sept. 14.

win as hosts in its first opportunity to compete since apartheid was lifted. The outcome, celebrated in a recent film, Invictus, was “a pretty amazing story,” said Riordan. “You didn’t have to be a rugby fan to like that story.” Another storyline that caught Riordan’s attention was Australia’s second World Cup title in 1999, in which he described the Aussie’s win as having all the stars align. Now, it’s Riordan’s opportunity to add an allCanadian footnote to the ongoing saga. “I think getting to the quarter-finals would be pretty nice for us,” Riordan said. “That adds to the pool if we make it out of a real tough pool.” But Riordan added that
