Tall Trees and Tall Tales: Queen’s Park Walking Tour (16+ years)

Queen’s Park is the crown jewel of New Westminster’s Parks. In 1887, the year of Queen Victoria’s jubilee, it was the first park created in the colony of British Columbia at a time when plant hunters scoured the world looking for exotic plants and trees to fill the Victorians’ insatiable demand for new plantings. See how the landscape of the park has changed over the years and learn how many of the trees and plants got their names and the lengths that plant hunters would go to in order to be the first to send their precious cargo home.

GENERAL

Make sure your dog can always find her way home. Protect your dog with a dog license

A dog license helps protect your dog by providing an easy-to-identify dog tag and registration with the New Westminster Animal Shelter. If your dog is lost anywhere in the world, the fastest way to be reunited with it is by this dog tag and the license. Dog license fees also help fund the New Westminster Animal Shelter, which protects and finds homes for stray animals in the city.

Getting a license for your dog is easy

Visit the New Westminster Animal Shelter, Queesborough Community Centre or visit www.newwestcity.ca to fill out a dog license application. You must provide proof of spaying or neutering to receive the discounted license rate. Payment can be made in person using cash, debit, cheque, VISA, MasterCard or money order. A cheque or money order may also be mailed with your completed application. License fees are not refundable or transferable.

Remember your dog’s license

The first step to responsible dog ownership is licensing your dog. All dogs must be licensed every year with the City of New Westminster. Pet owners who do not license their dogs annually may be fined. The City will send a license renewal reminder in December when your dog tag needs to be renewed.

Cost

Your completed license application and proof of spaying or neutering can be dropped off, mailed or faxed to: New Westminster Animal Shelter 231 Ewen Avenue, New Westminster, BC V3M 5B3

The cost of licensing your pet depends on whether or not it is spayed or neutered. If your pet is spayed or neutered, you will pay a reduced license fee. A discount on license fees is available until March 1.

Phone: 604.519.2008 Fax: 605.519.1024 Email: shelter@newwestcity.ca

For spayed or neutered dogs, the rate is $20.00 until March 1 and $30.00 after March 1. For non-spayed or non-neutered pets, the reduced rate is $60.00 until March 1 and $80.00 after March 1.

Visit the New Westminster Animal Shelter or visit www.newwestcity.ca to fill out a dog license application

Dog licenses expire December 31. 82

739 Columbia Street location of Cheung Hee’s grocery store with three employees. This photo was probably taken in the early 1930s, when the store was called the Chong Hee Market. The location was on the Anvil Centre block. Photo courtesy of Bev Hee.

Columbia Street was once filled with as many grocery stores as there are bridal shops now. Though there had always been stores owned by Chinese-Canadian residents in the downtown area, from the 1920s onwards, greengrocers became especially prominent on New Westminster’s main business street. At different times, there were grocery stores like the Wong Gee where Columbia Square is today, the Lee Bing near Copp’s Shoes, the Lum Kee near Church Street and so on. As the city’s Chinatown (roughly in the area of New Westminster SkyTrain Station today) faced demolition and Chinese-Canadians were denied jobs in other industries, owning a business remained a way to make a living. Yet, the greengrocers attracted the attention of the Retail Merchants Association which, in May 1926, sent a large delegation to a city council meeting to complain about Chinese-Canadians leasing stores on Columbia. Despite this, many of the stores remained successful for decades.

Columbia Street Greengrocers

Some of the most successful and long-lived stores were “Johnny” Cheung Hee’s grocery stores. His first store opened around 1924 at 49 Sixth Street, moving to their Columbia Street location near McKenzie after a few years. The Chong Hee Market, as the 646 Columbia location was called, sold fruit and produce; it first appeared in the directories in 1927. It was located next to the Paramount Theatre.

During the Great Depression, Hee was so successful that he opened two more locations. The Chong Hee Market’s second location opened in 1931 at 739 Columbia, on the block where the Anvil Centre is today, while the Handy Food Market opened at 633 Sixth Street in 1938. Susan Chew worked at the Handy Food Market in the later 1940s (from about 1946) and eventually bought the store, running it for about ten years before opening the Waffle House.

The store at 739 Columbia eventually became the Yee Wo Market in 1940 and was at that location until 1963. Yee was actually the family’s correct name; the “Hee” name was probably a mistake made by The original Chong Hee Market at Columbia immigration officials. and McKenzie during the 1951 May Day Parade. This location is currently a bridal store. Photo courtesy of Bev Hee.

The early Yee Wo Co. at 49 Sixth Street in 1925 with a delivery truck on view. This 1908 building is still on the southeast corner of Sixth and Carnarvon. The windows tell what was sold: fruit, candy and vegetables; other signs advertise Coca-Cola, Wrigley’s and other products. Photo courtesy of Bev Hee.

Join the New Westminster Museum for the opening of its new exhibit on community food security on Thursday, May 16 at 6:00 pm.
