GENERAL New Westminster Animal Services New Westminster Animal Services has some exciting news for our furry and feathered friends! A brand new animal shelter is being built and is expected to be complete by late Fall 2019. The animal shelter remains in Queensborough and will move to 420 Boyne Street. The new facility will be much larger in size than the current building which means more spacious enclosures and more housing options for all of the animals. This is especially important for our long-term residents! A shelter is no substitute for a home, but the new building will allow staff to provide even better care than they already do. Specifically, dogs will get larger indoor and outdoor kennels, as well as more play yards and exercise space. There will be multiple communal rooms and outdoor “catios� for the kitty cats, which is important when we consider all the different personalities. In the current shelter, there is no designated area for little critters like birds, bunnies, and guinea pigs, and they have been housed in a hallway due to a lack of space. However, in the new facility they will enjoy two rooms of their own, including a secure outdoor space for fresh air. Also in the plans are a designated intake room, a grooming room, and a meet-and-greet room where potential adopters and volunteers can hang out with an animal to get to know them better and to give them a break from their kennel.

Gurdwara means “guru’s door” and is a place of gathering and worship for people of the Sikh faith. The New Westminster gurdwara started in 1911 or 1912; the first official mention was an announcement about its opening in October 1913 in the Victoria newspaper, The Sansar. The 1914 directory for New Westminster listed it incorrectly as a “Hindoo Temple.” As well, instead of listing it with the other places of worship, it was listed in the residential section. This first gurdwara was Bhai Bishan Singh Tallewal’s home at 344 Boyne Street in Queensborough. On March 4, 1919, Bhai Bishan Singh paid $250 for the house on the next lot. This house became the gurdwara building until the current one was built in the 1970s (the back parking lot of the current site). The British Columbian described the gurdwara on July 28, 1928: “It is a commodious two-story building with a double verandah and balcony and is surrounded by a large garden which is now a riot of color due to the profusion of bloom. Sweet peas predominate but dahlias, asters, marigolds and other flowers all add their color and perfume. Vegetables are not overlooked either and some fine corn and tomatoes bear testimony to the fertility of the Lulu Island soil and to the care bestowed upon the plants by their gardener and the custodian of the temple.” Construction on the new gurdwara began in 1972 and the building opened in winter 1975 at 347 Wood Street. The new gurdwara has an upper worship hall with a takhat (a raised throne) that holds the Guru Granth Sahib scripture under a canopy. Meanwhile, downstairs is the langar, where food is served after the service.

Today, the Sukh Sagar Gurdwara has had another update, stemming from renovations completed in 2016. The gurdwara is recognizable from its white domes with floral bases and its Nishan Sahib flag atop a tall pole. The flag is changed every Vaisakhi (around mid-April). A new exhibit about the gurdwara will open at the New Westminster Museum on Thursday, November 21 at 6:00 pm.
