Budget woes spawn parents’ group BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

School concerns: Kelly SladeKerr, whose daughter Sophia attends school at Herbert Spencer Elementary, is among a group of local parents who have banded together to have a voice and run candidates in the civic election this fall.

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

Parents in New Westminster have formed an ad hoc group to stir up interest and bring some fresh faces to the school board in the upcoming civic election, citing the district’s ongoing budget troubles as the reason they came together. There are about 12 parents from schools all over the city involved in the group called New Westminster Parents for Public Education (P4PE), and their goal is to have a “voice” in this year’s civic election in November, organizer Kelly Slade-Kerr told The Record. “We are a group of concerned parents committed to public education who want to give parents a stronger voice in the upcoming school board elections,” explained Slade-Kerr, a lawyer whose children attend École Glenbrook Middle School and Herbert Spencer Elementary. “Confidence in our school district has been shaken. We’re not here to criticize – we’re here to get more involved, find solutions and build confidence in our public schools.” The group formed in a living room about two months ago and plans to hold a meeting for anyone who is interested in becoming involved in mid-April an exact date hasn’t yet been determined. “There is definitely a desire that we can identify people and support people who want to run for school district,” Slade-Kerr said, adding it remains to be seen whether they will support any current school trustees. “We haven’t gotten that far yet. This is

at a very grassroots stage.” Slade-Kerr said she hasn’t decided whether she will run in November’s election. The goal of the group, which SladeKerr said isn’t a political party, is to bring a “renewal of the board,” with a greater scope of skills and new perspectives, and rebuild confidence in the school district,

she said. The mother of two said she’s felt the impact of recent budget cuts with the reduction of a French immersion resource teacher, and cuts to supplies, equipment and field trips. The school district hit a major financial snag in 2012, when it revealed a multimillion-dollar surprise deficit. The following

year, the district had to cut approximately 62 jobs – about eight per cent of its workforce – to balance the budget, and it still owes almost $5 million to the Ministry of Education for previous budget shortfalls, which it must repay.

New study shows coal project a risk to health BY DON HAUKA REPORTER

editorial@royalcityrecord.com

A new study out of Washington State University suggests the Fraser Surrey Docks coal terminal expansion project would have a major impact on the health of residents living near the facility. And local academics say the study underlines the fact that approval of the

Fraser Surrey Docks project will inevitably lead to increased levels of known carcinogens in the air – particularly in the neighbourhoods adjacent to the terminal. “The increases in particles that this study attributed to even current levels of rail traffic were much higher than I would have expected and suggest that the proposed increases in rail traffic will have large impacts on concentrations in areas

around rail corridors,” said Professor Michael Brauer of the University of British Columbia’s School of Population and Public Health. “We have very little data on residential exposure to emissions from rail in general and to coal trains specifically, so this study is important.” The study conducted by Professor Dan Jaffe and published in Atmospheric

The study showed that levels of small particles of airborne pollution from train engines’ diesel exhaust and “larger particles believed to be coal dust” hit levels normally found in heavy industrial areas.

means to reform the federal electoral machinery, it has all the handiwork of a trojan horse in the form of a ballot box. What the Conservatives have put on the table is double layered in its lack of transparency – they want little to no debate on the bill and have mined it with items that would only benefit the party in power. Taking on just two of its contentious points: the elimination of voter information cards as one piece of eligible identification (but never the only source) would make voting more difficult for

students, seniors in care facilities, and First Nations people, and stripping Elections Canada of its ability to safeguard the electoral process and eliminate the role in promoting voter participation. Emboldened by a majority in the House and having stacked the Senate with yes men, Stephen Harper now has all the leverage to make his home field advantage last.

IN MY OPINION

Dear Editor:

I’m curious. Why is it, if Hyack is so out-of-date, behind-the-times and small-minded, that the Hyack detractors want everything it has? Were there not five Hyack board members who wanted Hyack under their control so bad they relentlessly instigated a hostile takeover – only to fail? Then, did not Bart Slotman in a letter to the editor (The Record, Sept. 25) admit to taking domain names that belonged to Hyack? Did he not state “Yes, I personally registered these domains,” yet documents showed at the time he registered both festivalsnewwest.com. and .ca for Uptown Property Group on Aug. 30? Has he returned these domains to Hyack? Then there is the question of ownership of the brand/event Uptown Live! While Mr. Slotman

claims it is his, why did Coun. Betty McIntosh make note that it was the proprietary property of Hyack Festival Association during a council meeting? While the question of ownership of Uptown Live! continues, is it not the intent of the Uptown Business Association New West – of which Mr. Slotman is chair – to involve Alliance West Sport Ent., a company owned by the past executive director of Hyack? Was this intent not included as part of their Oct. 30 application by the Uptown Business Association for the funding of Uptown Live! If that was not enough, I read with interest that Mr. Slotman now wants Hyack’s crowd from the parade. Can Uptown Live! not draw a crowd of its own, especially with the outrageous sum of taxpayers’ money it was given?

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Why take from Hyack? ◗ continued from page 6

nominated as a possible Citizen of the Year – not be enough to ensure the overwhelming success of Uptown Live! as a standalone event? Then there was the initiative by Coun. Chuck Puchmayr to take the Parade of Lights from Hyack and give it to the city to produce. Referred to by some as “Chuck’s City Christmas Parade” (CCCP), was this line-up of first-responder vehicles and cars with city employees really better than Hyack’s past parades? Recently, in council during discussions on Hyack, Mr. Puchmayr was heard to say (paraphrasing) “if it takes place” in regard to the international parade. Is he planning on taking this from Hyack too? On Feb. 17, I watched council where Mrs. Radbourne (Hyack President 98/99, wife of the 2012 Hyack president and in charge of the 2011 to 2013 Hyack Miss New Westminster ambassador program) asked for money to fund her ambassador program. Hasn’t the ambassador program been Hyack’s for over 40 years. Why did Coun. Betty McIntosh feel it necessary to inform council she had an outside legal opinion, if ownership of this program and name was not likely to become a legal matter? Recent articles inform it has a high probability to do so. Further, wasn’t Mrs. Radbourne’s presentation made even more suspect by the presence of Mariane Kazemir, one of the rogue ex-directors of the failed takeover of Hyack, sitting beside her? Is she one of the nine directors on this “new” Ambassador program? How many other rogue ex-directors serve on Radbourne’s board? So why are those so critical of Hyack the ones who are so eager to take everything it has? Are they incapable of creating anything new of their own? In this letter, I have identified domains, events, brands, crowds, past personnel, parades and youth programs that are being acquired from Hyack presumably without its consent but with the apparent sanction of council and mayor, with the exception of McIntosh. Seems to me, these actions are confirmation that Hyack is indeed desirable and relevant.

Has taking what doesn’t belong to you become the new norm in politics and business in New West? We used to be a city of giving. Are we now a city of taking? Paul R. Thompson, New Westminster

Why this rate of growth? Dear Editor:

An open letter to mayor and council: Before we approve any more highrises we need to consider the consequences of earthquakes. The report by the Insurance Bureau of Canada (Vancouver Sun, Oct. 30, 2013) reviewed several recent studies of the Cascadia subduction zone off southwest B.C. and found that we are not prepared for ‘the big one.’ The insurance bureau review estimated damage in B.C. from an earthquake and tsunami at $75 billion, not counting injury and loss of life. “There will be damages to buildings in Vancouver, Richmond and New Westminster …” and “For the first time in Canada the effects of the tsunami, landslides, fires and liquefaction were also modelled. Liquefaction describes the effect of shaking that turns loose wet soil into quicksand.” Highrises and high-density development on the floodplain come to mind. We need to consult the scientists who did the studies to assess what we need to do. (These first studies in 20 years and the scientists who did them are detailed in the book Full Rip 9.1 by Sandi Doughton). The more people and buildings, the more damage.

Newspapers: Recycling rules a blow ◗ continued from page 6

newspapers are struggling financially. Having Victoria force a $14-million tax on newspapers in the current environment looks an awful lot like someone throwing an anchor to a drowning person. Sadly, every single newspaper, from large regional dailies to the smallest community weekly, in every part of the province, will be impacted. Indeed, there is no greater threat to the vibrancy of British Columbia’s newspaper industry today than the government’s new recycling policy. Think about that for a minute while enjoying your next read. It is your daily newspaper, your community weekly, that is at risk here. But the new recycling regime will not only cause a wave of damage and job losses across newsrooms

everywhere, it will also have an impact on many other businesses, as well as thousands of municipal jobs that will be put at risk with the loss of local decision making for our recycling programs. And, don’t believe for a minute that this will somehow help B.C. families. The reality is that these costs will be passed on to consumers, who will now pay for the cost of recycling every time they have a box of pizza delivered, pick up a carton of milk, or buy a roll of toilet paper. The government still hasn’t said what was so wrong with the current blue box program that they could only fix it by hurting local businesses and costing hard-working people their jobs. Yet, in spite of having no clear rationale, the province seems intent on gambling away the suc-

cess of the blue box with an experiment in something they like to call “extended producer responsibility.” The ironic truth, of course, is that the government’s new hands-off approach actually represents an abdication of responsibility, not its extension. As a result, decisions about nearly every aspect of our recycling system will be handed over to a small group of big businesses based thousands of kilometres east of the Rockies. British Columbia’s environment minister may think that’s just fine, but I suspect the people of British Columbia might have a different opinion. Peter Kvarnstrom is chair of the Canadian Newspaper Association and president of B.C. operations for Glacier Media Group.

Rodent blamed for uptown power outage BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

A rodent may have bit off more than it could chew on Monday night. The city’s fire and electrical crews were called to the 700 block of Hamilton Street after a power pole caught on fire. “There was a high voltage cable failure,” said Pierre Gaudreault, manager of

the city’s electrical utility. “That caused the power outage.” The March 10 power outage affecting hundreds of residents living in highrises in the 600 and 700 blocks of Hamilton Street and several businesses along Sixth Street lasted about three hours, while residents of one building were without power for about 12 hours. “We had to replace a cable that supplied

electricity to 720 Hamilton St.,” Gaudreault said, noting the old cable had to be removed and replaced. “There is no quick fix.” It’s believed a squirrel or rat may have sparked the power outage. “We suspect a rodent got into the cable and started to chew on it. They find a little spot and tend to nest in there. Our suspicion is that is what happened,” Gaudreault said. “The cable was not that old.”

When rodents chew enough of the wire, the result is a “huge blast of heat,” which causes the fire, Gaudreault said. New Westminster firefighters extinguished the fire to the power pole, and then electrical crews got to work repairing the damage and restoring power. No human injuries were reported and no traces of rodents were found at the scene.

route “may put these residents over the new U.S. National Ambient Air Quality Standards,” Jaffe wrote in his study. Some of the particles measured during the study were 30 times more slender than a human hair and could easily penetrate deep inside a person’s respiratory system, causing lung and heart disease. Brauer said if an air quality study around Fraser Surrey Docks showed levels similar to those found in Seattle by Jaffe, those levels would exceed Canada-Wide Air Quality Standards set to kick in starting 2015. And he said exposure to these kind of airborne particles isn’t just an annoyance – it’s potentially deadly. “Exposure to particulate air pollution is much more than a nuisance – it is strongly linked to increased deaths and reduced life expectancy and is recognized by the WHO (World Health Organization) as

a cause of lung cancer,” Brauer said. Jaffe’s study has renewed calls from opponents to the FSD coal project for the health ministry to step in and require an independent analysis of the health risks posed by the proposed expansion. “Health Minister Terry Lake and Environment Minister Mary Polak need to step up to the plate – frankly, they are not doing their job to protect the health interests of the public,” said New Westminster Environmental Partners spokesman Andrew Murray. “I can’t understand why Port Metro Vancouver continues to try to bypass the health authorities. They’ve done everything they can to avoid going through an independent health impact study.” Last month, Port Metro Vancouver, the federal authority responsible for approving the proposal, requested Fraser Surrey Docks provide more infor-

mation on the impacts on human health posed by the project. Port Metro wants more information on, among other things “impacts of coal dust and diesel emissions, particularly how they impact vulnerable populations like children, seniors and people with respiratory issues.” Port Metro expects the additional material will take “a few months” to assemble and submit. But Kevin Washbrook of Voters Taking Action on Climate Change said the public will have no chance to comment on the new information being assembled by Fraser Surrey Docks. “I would be surprised if they show it’s anything but safe, and without independent oversight and transparency, I wouldn’t

Do you know this man?

Police say he’s a suspect in several robberies BY CAYLEY DOBIE REPORTER cdobie@royalcityrecord.com

New Westminster police are hoping the public can help identify two suspects alleged to have committed more than a dozen robberies in the Lower Mainland. On Feb. 21 around 9:20 p.m., two armed suspects robbed a fast food restaurant inside the Royal City Centre in uptown, according to a media release from New Westminster police. The suspects had the lone clerk of the restaurant lie on the floor while they took more than $2,000 from the cash register, the release explained. Sgt. Diana McDaniel told The Record the clerk was too traumatized by the incident to recall what type of weapon the suspects were carrying, but investigators

believe these suspects are responsible for more than 12 other robberies throughout the Lower Mainland. “In past robberies, these suspects have used pepper spray and butcher knives, but in this robbery, the weapon is unknown,” she added. Police describe the first suspect as a clean-shaven, South Asian man in his early 20s about six feet tall with a stocky build. He was seen wearing a black hoodie with “bad boys” written across the front in large gold letters. The second suspect is described as a Caucasian man, also clean-shaven and about six feet tall with a medium build. He was seen wearing a black hoodie with black track pants. Anyone who may have information about either suspect is asked to contact Det. Felipe Correa at 604529-2495 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Heads: you get a worse recycling program. Tails: you get to pay more for it.

The BC Government is proposing to offload the province’s world-class recycling programs, run by local municipalities, to an association led by big multi-national corporations. The idea is that we’ll get a better, more efficient program that costs taxpayers less. Unfortunately, what we’ll really end up with is anyone’s guess. The association isn’t guaranteeing that we’ll get a better program, or even one as good as the current Blue Box program already in place. Since the association is led by big businesses outside of BC, many of whom are not even headquartered in Canada, one could presume that profits will come before environmental stewardship. They usually do. They also won’t guarantee that there won’t be any job cuts here in BC. And how is this supposed to make things better for BC?

Currently, BC homeowners only pay, on average, $35 a year for curbside recycling. Under the proposed regime, you’ll pay more. Every time you bring home a pizza, buy toilet paper, or pretty much anything else that comes in a package, businesses will be passing their increased costs on to you. How much more? Well, nobody’s saying. Here’s the only thing anyone does know: we already have a Blue Box program that works, is efficient, managed locally and puts the BC environment first. So why is the BC government flipping a coin, bringing in a questionable recycling program that some of our local elected officials are already calling a “scam?” It’s time to contact Premier Clark and ask her. What’s going on here?

An approachable, welcoming city I

n just a couple of years in the city, Jeremy Perry has found plenty of ways to give back to the community he’s immersed himself in. Perry and his husband, Ian Dagami, moved here in November 2011, after the owner of the condo they were renting in East Vancouver told them she wanted to move back into her place. “We were a little shaken by the fact that we didn’t have control over where we lived, because previously we owned a place in Toronto,” Perry explained. “Then we realized that we could either buy NIKI HOPE a three-bedroom in New West or a shoebox in Vancouver.” Now, the 30-year-old employee benefits consultant is well ingrained in the community where he volunteers with numerous organizations, including the Rotary Club of New Westminster, Quest New West, New West Pride and KidSport New West.

ON MY BEAT

Niki Hope: What did you think when you moved here? Jeremy Perry: Well, I was really impressed (with) the walkability of the downtown core, because we live right downtown. As far as the community, it really felt like a small town with city amenities. I grew up in a farming town. In Vancouver, we never really felt like we found community, whereas in New West it just seemed to fall into our lap, and everybody was so welcoming and so friendly. I found this community very approachable. It was a really great welcome. NH: How have you integrated yourself here? JP: I threw myself into community involvement, so I joined the Rotary Club. I got involved with KidSport. I started going to the N.E.X.T. New West events. I started attending some of the Chamber of Commerce events. I’ve volunteered with the New West Pride Society. NH: Were you surprised there was a Pride Society here? Did you know before you moved here that there were Pride events? JP: I had no idea. Who’s heard of New West Pride? Come on (he says, laughing)! I’m vice-president of the society now, so I probably shouldn’t talk about it that way. NH: Have you found New West to be a progressive community in that sense? A welcoming community?

I actually, I have grown up in a generation where I’ve never found anywhere to be a problem. I’ve never actually considered the fact that I might marry a man to form a part of my central identity. … I don’t really consider myself a gay man – I’m just me.

N: Do you miss Vancouver? JP: Not at all, not at all. The reason I don’t miss it is I feel like I haven’t left it. I’m so close to Vancouver, and when I’m talking to people in Vancouver, they are like ‘Oh you live all of the way out in New West.’ Last Tuesday I was at a breakfast meeting in Vancouver, and somebody made a comment to me … “You live so far away out in New West,” and I was like, “it doesn’t feel that far away.” (I asked) “How long did it take you to get to breakfast today?” He said it took him 40 minutes, and I was like, “OK, it took me 35, … so you live in Vancouver, I live in New West, but I got to breakfast quicker than you did.” So I don’t miss the hustle and bustle of Vancouver because it’s

right there. Now, granted, I live in a building with a door to the SkyTrain station, so maybe my reality isn’t everybody’s reality. That’s something I do love about New West is how many people live so close to SkyTrain. With five SkyTrain stops in town, it’s incredible how quickly people can get to SkyTrain. NH: A day with no commitments, what’s your favourite thing to do in New West? JP: I have tight-knit family, so it would be something with the family, whether that’s going for a walk along the river or going to one of the many parks. In the summer, bringing my nephews to one of the water parks … Queen’s Park or Hume Park. Do you know of someone who is new to New West? Or are you a new resident?

aying off your mortgage is an important goal and an essential component to your financial health. “If you’re like most Canadians, you may not have a plan in place to pay off your mortgage early,” says Mike Husband, CIBC Mobile Mortgage Advisor. “In many cases, efficiencies can be found in your monthly budget to help pay-down your mortgage earlier than expected. All you need is the right information and customized advice to help you form your plan.” CIBC has a wealth of information on financing and personal wealth strategies, like the article Mike has included below.

For example, if you made accelerated bi-weekly payments of $415 instead of monthly payments of $830, you could save almost $27,000 in interest over the entire amortization period of your mortgage. This would allow you to own your home about 4.5 years sooner. Apply your pre-payment privilege Use your pre-payment privilege to make a lump sum payment. A lump-sum payment is applied directly to your outstanding principal if there is no outstanding interest owing. This can save you money over the course of your mortgage.2

For example, if you made a $1,000 lumpFour Simple Ways to Pay Your Mortgage Down sum payment, you could save almost $28,350 Faster1 in interest over the entire amortization Increase your payments / Make double up period of your mortgage. This would allow payments you to own your home about 4 years sooner. You can increase your payment amount when you arrange your mortgage, or at any time during the term. This allows you to pay down your principal faster. Want to pay down your principal even faster? Double up your payments instead! Accelerate your payment schedule You can make payments more frequently which saves you money in interest charges over the long run as it allows you to pay down your principal faster. CIBC offers monthly, semi-monthly, bi-weekly and weekly payment frequency options.

Actual rates will vary, which will affect your payment amount, your mortgage payout date and the amount you could save. 2 Payment options are subject to the terms and conditions of your mortgage.

Lacking self-control? This one’s for you AROUND TOWN

THERESA MCMANUS

L

earn how to “get a grip” at a presentation taking place at Douglas College next week. Nathan DeWall, an expert on the science of self-control, will talk about Taming the Impulsive Beast: Self-Control as Our Greatest Human Strength. The free event takes place Tuesday, March 18 from noon to 1 p.m. in Room 2201 of the New Westminster campus, 700 Royal Ave. DeWall, a psychology professor at the University of Kentucky, will explain how self-control is both our greatest human strength and the easiest to improve. “We all have heroes who motivate us to become better versions of ourselves and the success of those heroes relies on a common ingredient: self-control,” he said in a press release. “I want to explain the science of self-control and show people that we aren’t as different from our heroes as we think. We all have what it takes to achieve our goals.” DeWall will draw on cutting-edge science to show how self-control helps us have better lives and stronger relationships and improves societies. By understanding why selfcontrol is important and how it works, he said people can accomplish more than they ever thought was possible. DeWall, who received the 2011 College of Arts and Sciences Outstanding Teaching Award, has had more than 120 scientific articles and chapters published. He is also director of the Social Psychology Lab at the University of Kentucky. “We are thrilled

to have a visit from a world-class researcher and exceptional educator such as Dr. DeWall,” said Nicole Vittoz, a psychology instructor at Douglas College. For more, visit www. douglascollege.ca.

NWSS choir earns invite to Lincoln Center CLASS ACT

T

NIKI HOPE

he sweet sounds of a successful student choir were enjoyed by the board of education

recently. Students from the New Westminster Secondary School Music Department chamber choir performed for the board of education, providing welcome entertainment to school trustees. The choir sang U2’s hauntingly beautiful With or Without You and an upbeat African song. The secondary school’s

choir, led by Kelly Proznick, is well-known for its tradition of excellence. The course was introduced in 2009 as a stepping-stone into post-secondary vocal programs. The students sing more advanced choral repertoire with increased focus on the classical western choral cannon. This group has gained

a reputation for excellence, and as a result, has been invited to perform as guests with ensembles such as the UBC U Singers and Coastal Sound Youth Choir. In November, the choir was invited as one of six local high-school choirs to participate in Voices West, a choral workshop weekend that featured five of the strongest community youth choirs

from Western Canada. As well, the choir was invited to the first-ever UBC Invitational Choral Festival. They have just received an invitation to sing Mozart’s Requiem at the Lincoln Center in New York City under the direction of UBC choral director Graeme Langager in spring 2015. Members of the group travelled to Banff last spring for the

Rocky Mountain Music Festival, where they worked with acclaimed South African conductor Lhente-Mari Pitout. In less than a month, during spring break, many of the student singers are travelling to Cuba for a cultural and musical tour. Do you have an item for Class Act?

Hear many stories of Heritage Afloat OUR PAST

ARCHIE & DALE MILLER

T

his year’s Heritage Week theme was Heritage Afloat. New Westminster has, from its earliest days in the mid-1800s, witnessed countless vessels of many styles, modes of propulsion, varieties of cargo, functionality and storylines.

Many people enjoy the “snagpuller” Samson V, now a maritime museum moored at Westminster Quay, linking back through the four other Samsons to the 1880s. The story of the HMS Plumper, a British Naval survey ship, was of an early vessel on the coast and into the Fraser. It is fascinating to imagine her sitting in the river off today’s Sapperton Landing Park, carrying out her surveys and soundings, numbers that are still seen on charts. Others find ferries more interesting. The first to cross the river here

was the K de K, followed by the Surrey, both of which were replaced by a series of bridges. Who remembers seeing the B.C. Ferries’ Queen of New Westminster sitting at the central dock in the Royal City after a major refit in the 1970s? There were also freighters that carried the name New Westminster, via the City of New Westminster, as well as a flower-class corvette, HMCS New Westminster, in the Royal Canadian Navy that served in the Second World War. A set of freighters built around the same time

had a number of “park” ships with local name connections, including the Queen’s Park, Tipperary Park and Sapperton Park. The D.L. Clinch, a sailing ship, was honoured by the community when it sailed in late 1859 with a cargo of wood and cranberries. This ship went down in New Westminster’s history as the first to leave the port with cargo for a foreign destination. A ship that was a familiar sight on the river for many years from about 1918 to the mid-1960s, was the rail car carrier, SS

Canora. Many people have personal stories about this ship and its travel between the Fraser River’s Port Mann, Canadian National rail yards, and its initial destination of Patricia Bay on the Saanich Peninsula on Vancouver Island. Any list of prominent maritime connections locally must include Captain William Irving, a leader in the sternwheeler industry in early B.C., whose family home in New Westminster is a proud, renowned, riverboat captain’s Victorian house, open to the public. Irving had many paddlewheelers in his day,

and a story from June of 1863 about the sternwheel steamer Reliance offers a glimpse of the early trade. At Emory Creek on the Fraser, between Hope and Yale, high water often created a bar that blocked vessels. Captain Irving challenged this bar and won, and the community celebrated. The New Westminster Historical Society gathering, on Wednesday, March 19, starting at 7:30 p.m. in the New Westminster Public Library auditorium, will feature lots more Heritage Afloat stories and images – join us.

Special to The Record

Stealth give up record to pro lacrosse Rush Western Lacrosse Association Burnaby Lakers forward Robert Church helped the Edmonton Rush set a new National Lacrosse League record following a 10-9 win over the Vancouver Stealth last Saturday. Church, who was named the game’s first star, tallied his first pro career hat trick that stood up as the gamewinner, giving the Rush its record ninth straight start without a loss this season. Former New Westminster Salmonbellie goalie Tyler Richards was named a third star in the Stealth net. Edmonton keeper Aaron Bold, with 41 saves in the record win, was named the game’s second star. “We played better, but still not good enough,” said Stealth head coach Chris Hall in an NLL press release. “It’s pretty disappointing when you’re 3-8 and you’ve lost 10-9 and 9-8 to the team that’s 9-0.” The Stealth take on the Calgary Roughnecks at the Langley Events Centre on Friday, March 21.

Tough sledding: New Westminster, in orange, had a rather rough go of it at the high school field lacrosse provincial senior Tier 1 championships, winning just one game in five played – a 10-8 victory over Charles Best.

Burnaby Lake knocks off talent-rich Castaways Burnaby Lake Rugby Club kept a tight hold on first place, defeating a talent-laden Castaway Wanderers 18-8 in B.C. Rugby premier division men’s play. Burnaby’s high-scoring offence was held to a pair of tries as two of the most dominant forward packs in the league slogged it out under a constant downpour and slippery conditions at Burnaby Lake-East last Saturday. “It was a pretty slow game obviously due to the wet weather, but I just felt (Burnaby Lake) played well in the conditions and came away with the win,” said Castaway Wanderers and national team prop Andrew Tiedemann in a B.C. Rugby press release. Both packs had multiple representative level players with Burnaby featuring B.C. Bears provincial reps Scott MacKay, Andrew Lackner, Anthony Luca and Micha Govorchin. Castaway’s roster included Canada national team forwards Hubert Buydens, John Phelan and Tiedemann, while its back line also boasted Bears’ standout Matt Buckley, as well as a national team centre pairing of Adam Kleeberger and Mike Scholz. Burnaby Lake dominated the opening 15 minutes with the majority of possession that resulted in two penalties inside their own half by standoff Geoff Ryan to put his side up 6-0. The Island club replied from

inside Burnaby’s 22 metre line, where Buckley’s long pass skipped along the slick grass and bounced into the hands of winger Jonny Morris, who sprinted in for a try in the corner. With momentum in their favour, Castaway’s fortunes came to an abrupt halt, when a deep kick was returned 50 metres by 2013 premier league player of the year Joe Dolesau, who offloaded to his inside centre Jeke Gotegote to run in a try for a 11-5 lead. Ryan added the extras and it was Burnaby up 13-5 at the half. The second frame was a close affair, and it wasn’t until roughly 15 minutes in when Castaway fullback Chad Northcott slotted a penalty to close the gap to 13-8. Burnaby remained commit-

ted to its attack in the forwards, and after several phases up front, the ball went wide to prop Scott Mackay, who crashed over in the corner for a try. The tally was Mackay’s third in as many games for Burnaby. “Knowing how many Canada tight-five players they had on their roster definitely got us jacked up for today’s game,” said Mackay in the release. “It was a hard-fought battle up front with their big pack and they didn’t give us anything all day. We had to work for every inch.” The two sides are idle this weekend with the premier league schedule set to resume on March 22, when league-leading 9-1 Burnaby Lake and second-place 7-3 James Bay meet at MacDonald Park on Vancouver Island.

SFU to play Div. I school in 2014

The Simon Fraser University football team will face a Division I opponent in its 11-game 2014 schedule this season. The Clan will travel to Pocatello, Idaho for a non-conference matchup against the Idaho State Bengals on Oct. 4 at the 12,000-seat Holt Arena – the first indoor college football stadium. The Bengals play in the Big Sky Conference and won the first championship in that conference’s history. The program also won the NCAA FCS championship in 1981. “Playing a Division I opponent will be a great opportunity for our program to meet with the growth and the vision of what we want to become at SFU,” said Clan head coach Jacques Chapdelaine in a

There will be a new opponent in the Great Northwest conference this season as the South Dakota School of Mines Hardrockers join the league as an affiliate member for football. The Hardrockers and the Clan will meet once on Oct. 18 when South Dakota makes the trip to British Columbia. The Clan begins preparing for 2014 with the spring camp already underway.

Clan double Div. I side

Simon Fraser University kicked off its varsity men’s soccer season with a 4-2 victory over NCAA Division I University of Washington on March 1. Magnus Kristensen scored a pair of goals for the Clan. Carlo Basso opened the scoring in the fourth minute. Ryan Dhillon made the score 3-0, tallying the eventual game-winning marker in the 35th minute. Brandon Watson recorded the shutout for SFU.

Four-goal spark

Adam Helewka notched his 22nd goal for the Spokane Chiefs in a 4-2 win over Prince George in Western Hockey League play on March 7. Helewka’s goal sparked an unanswered four-goal third period for the Chiefs.

A St. Paddy’s Tradition: Corned Beef and Cabbage Did you know cabbage is one of the healthiest veggies you can eat and it’s incredibly affordable? Compounds called glucosinolates and a high-fibre content are both implicated in cancer and cardiovascular disease prevention. And this benefit can be enhanced by light cooking.After slow-cooking your corned beef, add root vegetables like carrots and potatoes to the broth and cook until tender. Then add in loads of shredded cabbage and cook for only 5 minutes until softened. Avoid cooking the cabbage for too long or it will lose some of its health properties. Have a moderate serving of meat (2.5 oz) with a hearty serving (1-2 cups) of cabbage plus the other veggies for a traditional Irish meal. Don’t forget the pint of Guinness! 2010 - 2014 Awards.
