A TOUGH FINISH

Anvil on someone else’s land? By Jeremy Deutsch

jdeutsch@newwestrecord.ca

When it opened two years ago, the Anvil Centre was intended to be the cultural hub for New Westminster. Now the facility is also the subject of a lawsuit by a developer. According to a statement of claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court, Fortua Development Corporation is suing the City of New Westminster over the construction of the Anvil Centre. The company, a registered owner of a property at 37 Eighth St., claims that, in September 2014, the city built a structure on the land without Fortua’s knowledge or consent. Court documents list the lot as Block G Merchants Square Plan, which was the name used by the city to describe the Anvil Centre before it was built. A city map from July 2012 shows the piece of land at 37 Eighth St. directly beside the back of the Anvil Centre at 777 Columbia St. The lawsuit claims there has been a series of communications between the company and the city since the construction of the building. In 2014, Fortua said it exchanged Continued on page 8

CALL ON PROVINCE TO HOLD BYELECTIONS

Trustees split – but still send a letter By Cayley Dobie

cdobie@newwestrecord.ca

It’s late in coming and it triggered a debate, but the New Westminster school board will send a letter to the Ministry of Education

calling for byelections to replace fired school boards in Vancouver and the Okanagan. The motion to write a letter calling for byelections to be held by the end of April 2017 was originally put for-

ward by trustee Kelly SladeKerr and tabled at the board’s October meeting. But not everyone was on board with Slade-Kerr’s motion Tuesday. Trustee Casey Cook said he would not support “a

broad-brush approach,” when the situation in the North Okanagan-Shuswap school district differed greatly from what led up to the firing of the board in Vancouver. “In abstract, I agree, a

board should be in place, but I just don’t see a onesize-fits-all scenario working in this case,” he said. Cook pointed to a statement released by the district parent advisory council in the North Okanagan-Shus-

wap on Nov. 9, which said stakeholders in that district were in favour of having the appointed trustee, Mike McKay, continue in his post until the next election cycle in 2018. Continued on page 8

OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN UPDATE

SkyTrain stabbing Police have questions for a young man after he was stabbed near the New Westminster SkyTrain station on Nov. 23. Officers got the call around 10:45 p.m., and when they arrived, they found a man in his early 20s suffering from a nonlife-threatening stab wound. While it’s still early in the investigation, police believe the man was stabbed during a fight with another young man, acting Sgt. Jeff Scott, spokesperson for the New Westminster Police Depart-

ment, told the Record. “We’re trying to get more information from the victim about details. At this point, the investigation is ongoing,” he said. “It appears to be an isolated event so no risk to the public at this time.” The suspect, also in his early 20s, was not arrested. Investigators are waiting to speak with the victim before proceeding with any charges. Neither man is a residents of New Westminster. – By Cayley Dobie, staff reporter

NEW FUTURE? As part of the City of New Westminster’s update to its official community plan, the city is considering new land uses for the area around the 22nd Street SkyTrain station, which would allow highrises, midrises and townhouses to be built in the area. PHOTO FILE

Big changes planned for Connaught Heights Area around 22nd Street SkyTrain station will see densification with highrises, midrises and townhouses in the mix with single-family homes By Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

The area around the 22nd Street SkyTrain station will undergo a massive transformation in the decades ahead. As part of the update to the official community plan, the City of New Westminster is contemplating new land uses around the 22nd Street SkyTrain station. Highrises, midrises and townhouses are among the housing forms that will be allowed in the Connaught Heights neighbourhood in future years. Planner Lynn Roxburgh said transit development areas are places where more intensive, mixed-used developments are expected, so the area around the station is considered appropriate for densification. She said it’s proposed that the highest density would be located around the station, and decrease as it moves away from the station into the residential neighbourhood.

In addition to introducing new types of housing to the single-family residential neighbourhood, the plan would see some retail space on Seventh Avenue. On Monday, council considered three land-use scenarios for an area bounded by Sixth Avenue and Edinburgh Street, and 23rd Street and the lane east of 20th Street. ! Option 1: Four highrises and three blocks designated for midrises (buildings up to a maximum of six storeys). ! Option 2: Six towers and two blocks designated for midrises. ! Option 3: Eight highrises and the lowest amount of land designated for townhouses of the three options being considered. Roxburgh said there continues to be a “really big divide” about what people want to see in the plan, with some wanting more density and others preferring less.The official community plan is contemplating how

the area will develop in the next 25 years. While council members unanimously support the introduction of highrises near the 22nd Street SkyTrain station, they provided staff with feedback on the

We have to do this right and make sure it triggers growth in a responsible way

appropriate mix of highrises, single-family homes and townhouses. Staff will incorporate the public and council feedback into a draft land-use map and official community plan. Coun. Patrick Johnstone said the city needs to think of the neighbourhood completely differently than it

does today because it is currently a car-dependent area, with very few services and no sidewalks in some locations. He stressed the need to address the neighbourhood’s transportation issues and to provide more greenspace in the neighbourhood. Although highrises and townhouses will be built in around the 22nd Street SkyTrain station in the future, Mayor Jonathan Cote said single-family homes will still be the dominant land use in the area. He said it’s “completely incompatible” to have only singlefamily homes located next to a SkyTrain station and a “frequent transit network” that’s well served by buses. Coun. Chuck Puchmayr said the city will need to look closely at impacts on local infrastructure as the plan unfolds in the coming years. “We have to do this right and make sure it triggers growth in a responsible way,” he said.

A New Westminster man is hoping his bad experience will be a warning for fellow residents. When Brow of the Hill resident Allan Greenwood’s package didn’t arrive when it was scheduled to, he didn’t think much of it. Maybe it had been delayed, he thought, and he went on waiting. But when a week passed and the package was still MIA, he went online to track it and was surprised to learn it had been delivered on time. But where was the package? Greenwood checked the security footage from the camera posted at his front door, and what he saw was quite a shock. The footage revealed that the package did arrive on the day in September it was supposed to, but before he got home, it was taken from his front porch by an unknown woman. “I saw this lady walk up the street and look around and then help herself to the package by my front door,”

Greenwood said, adding this is the first time someone has taken a package from his porch. He promptly called the police and reported the theft, passing along the surveillance footage of the suspect.The file remains under investigation, according to the New Westminster Police Department. “(The department) is aware of similar thefts throughout the Metro Vancouver area, but this has not been experienced to any great degree here in New Westminster.We encourage residents to have someone home to receive the package or have it delivered to the local post office,” read a statement from police. This is the first time Greenwood’s heard of something like this happening in his neighbourhood. “I’ve seen it on the news – more in the States – happening, but I never thought it would be happening here,” he said. Greenwood, meanwhile, hopes this incident will serve as a warning to others in New Westminster.

Massey eyes brighter future

Massey Theatre Society is embarking on plans to equip the theatre for the future. In June, the city and school district announced that the City of New Westminster would assume ownership of the theatre as part of the high school replacement plan.That news prompted the city to forge ahead with long-overdue improvements. “We have been holding off on these investments for far too long due to uncertainly about the theatre’s future,” executive director Jessica Schneider said in a press release. “These are fundamental upgrades, and I am very excited to be making many more in the year ahead.” Recent improvements have include the installation of state-of-the art Robert and Juliat spotlights, replacing spotlights that were purchased third-hand after Expo 86. “Brighter, more energy-

Future plans: Massey Theatre is planning for future improvements to the facility, now that a solid plan for its ownership has been mapped out. Recent upgrades to the theatre have been done and more will follow.

efficient and more readily adaptable, the spotlights are an essential element of a large theatre,” said a press release from Massey Theatre. “Audiences will definitely see the difference when they are in use at upcoming performances.” The black stage drapes,

which were about 40 years old, have been replaced with new deep black drapery that’s expected to provide a much improved backdrop for costumes, scenery and lighting featured on stage. Last year, the Massey Theatre Society invested $125,000 in the drapery,

lighting and other upgrades, with funds coming from the society’s fundraising campaign. Community members can support Massey Theatre by making tax deductible donations or by buying tickets to performances at the venue, the release says.

Opinion OUR VIEW

Seniors – left out in the cold, again

It’s not surprising that the two groups of people hardest hit by poverty in B.C. are children and seniors. It is also reprehensible. The cost of housing and the lack of decent housing are forcing more seniors and children into continuing cycles of poverty. A recent report released by the University of Victoria and Union Gospel Mission found that over the last five years, the number

of seniors waiting for subsidized housing in Vancouver has increased by 38 per cent. Since 2002, more than 1,000 seniors have been added to the waiting list, making the total number of applicants 3,516. In New Westminster, we suspect seniors face the same challenges – albeit on a smaller scale. The provincial government’s pledge to build more affordable housing

comes too late with too few units. As a campaign pledge, it reeks of cynicism. The B.C. Senior’s Supplement – a guaranteed income supplement for low-income residents age 65 and older – is $49.30 per month. It hasn’t been raised since 1991. That is so starkly cold as to make one shake their head. If you are a working person in B.C., imagine trying

to live on the salary you made in 1991 in today’s economic climate. It is impossible. Now, to be sure, there are other funds poor seniors can access – such as B.C. Housing’s Shelter Aid for Elderly Residents. But that also hasn’t risen to match the cost of living. In fact, according to the B.C. Seniors Advocate, rents went up 34 per cent over 10 years, but the supplement cap only went up

nine per cent. If you are a senior living on CPP, you can’t possibly afford rent and food on such amounts. The latest trend is seeing more seniors ending up homeless, or living in vans or old RVs. Wonder what the van is doing down the street in your suburban neighbourhood? Well, it could just be someone has parked it there because they don’t have space at home. But it could also be someone’s

full-time home. Imagine at the age of 70 not being able to afford a warm, dry place to live. To be ashamed to tell your kids, or be a burden on them. To worry about where your next meal is coming from. That’s not what we wish for our grandmothers and grandfathers – it’s not what we would wish for anyone. COMMENT ON THIS STORY

MY VIEW KEITH BALDREY

ICBC is still a political football One of B.C.’s oldest political footballs is being kicked around again, and the kicking is expected to continue for some time. I’m referring to the Insurance Corporation of B.C. Some seriously large ICBC rate hikes appear to be inevitable, the result of a government plundering the corporation’s bottom line and of a dramatically changing car insurance industry. Three rate increase scenarios were released by ICBC recently, and the worst-case for one of them would see a compounded 42 per cent hike spread over the next five years.The bestcase scenario envisions a 16 per cent increase over the same time frame. Given the huge spike in costs associated with motor vehicle accidents and the fact that there appears little prospect that those costs will decline anytime soon, the worst-case scenario seems much more reflective of reality than the other. Rick McCandless, a retired assistant deputy minister who now spends his days analyzing ICBC and B.C. Hydro finances, has been warning for months now that ICBC’s growing habit of using profits from the optional insurance side (almost a half billion dollars this past year) to keep basic insurance costs from growing at an explosive rate cannot be sustained. The B.C. Liberals now say they will not take a financial “dividend” from the increasingly cash-strapped Crown corporation for at least the next three years.

But even that won’t solve the riddle of rising costs. Vehicle crashes in B.C. have jumped an astounding 15 per cent in the past two years.Those crashes mean personal injury claims are up, and so are the costs of repairing vehicles. Improved technology and safety features on motor vehicles have made them much more expensive to repair. All these rising costs are borne by ICBC, which simply isn’t raising rates high enough to pay for them. But while the insurance game is changing, the political game associated with it likely won’t. Almost since it was created in the 1970s, government decisions dealing with ICBC rates have been based on politics, not economics.The NDP governments in 1975 and 1996 both allowed political strategy – based on the election cycle – to determine rate levels. The B.C. Liberals, since coming to power in 2001, have exerted much more political control over the Crown corporation and have used it as a cash cow that plays a major role in balancing the government’s central budget in various years. And now, with an election looming, the government is unlikely to admit the fiscal reality to millions of drivers whose votes it will soon be wooing. But any attempt to confine ICBC’s annual rate hike to a politically expedient yet economically unsustainable figure is simply putting off the day of reckoning. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

We need to discourage jaywalking in the city

Throwback Thursday: Woodward’s memories

Dear Editor: I read with dismay the article about the lady being struck by an automobile on McBride while attempting to cross in the middle of the block. At her age such an accident will undoubtedly change her life for the worst. Therefore, I suggest she bring a lawsuit against the city; she will need the money in the coming years. Some time back the thoughtful people on our council decided that encouraging jaywalking would be better for the businesses. This was accomplished by not enforcing provincial statute. Sadly, they did not share this information with the surrounding communities. A short time later a young girl was killed by a motorcycle being ridden by a Surrey man, again, mid-block on McBride. The man was killed, too. Perhaps she thought what she was doing was legal and so did he. It would seem the only people blind to this dynamic are city council and city police. I believe this course of action is a mistake; a mistake which should carry monetary consequences since moral consequences seem to be missing. D. Turner, by email

Ann Keech Oh, Woodwards! Going to shop every saturday with my grandmother. The shopping bins with the little “licence plate” tags. Santa. The toy section. Sliding down the railings. Hanging out on the roof. Watching Dark Shadows in the TV section with a bunch of other cable-less kids. The bargain section. Frosted malts. The time my two year old got away from me and we found him on the mechanical horse, the same one I loved as a child. I grew up on Sixth Street just over Tenth Ave so Woodwards was my store.

Stand up against racism and bigotry Dear Editor: Recently, video footage of a verbal, racist assault on a South Asian individual by a white man in an Abbotsford parking lot began showing up on our local news stations. When that story broke, I had been celebrating Ending Violence Association of B.C. and the B.C. Lions’ anti-violence campaign “Be More Than a Bystander,” and supporting the team’s message to speak up and be part of the solution. As the executive director of MOSAIC, and as an immigrant and refugee to Canada myself, I find this incident highly disturbing. The blatant display of racial discrimination and the use of a fist of hate combined with a “white power” slogan are troubling behaviours with the potential to create a serious divide between people and at the same time threaten the core value of the many freedoms offered in our great country. At MOSAIC, we work with more than 25,000 immigrants and refugees every year and we know that some form of discrimination and racism is one of the challenges they face while integrating into Canadian society. Systemic discrimination does exist in Canada, but I believe we are empowered enough and civil enough to openly express our views with each other about this issue and discuss it openly. I applaud the many people who quickly took to social media and other forums to condemn the attack. And while we try to make sense of such attacks, we also need to stay vigilant and hold each other accountable to do all we can to end racism, along with sexism, homophobia, xenophobia and other forms of discriminatory hatred. We all need to take individual responsibility, and we need all levels of government to continue championing the fight against all forms of bigotry. We need more of us to “be more than bystanders” to ensure that the Canadian virtue of respecting differences does not become eroded through indifference or apathy. Eyob Naizghi, executive director, MOSAIC

Jim Bates It was the place to shop. Used to love when you went grocery shopping how they would roll your bags down the conveyor in totes for you to load into your car. Debbi Scott We went grocery shopping there every payday when I was a kid. 4 kids 2 carts and 2 parents -just like a train down the aisles. Then if we were good we would go to whitespot drive in for dinner Sharon Sloan Boy I miss that store. I remember being on the roof and going to see SANTA in the corner front window. So many memories. Wish it was still around today. Donna Gordon Pike Good old Woodwards......I worked there for a few years, part time when my girlies were small, and my Mother In Law also worked there. It was a good place for women to actually make a salary that contributed to the family income.

NewWest needs more ‘middle’ housing Carolyn Philip When our children were young, we lived in Toronto in a modestly priced neighbourhood of mixed housing: small bungalows, semi-detached, and two story houses on small lots. This was a vibrant, affordable neighbourhood, close to the subway, and a few blocks to a commercial strip where the local residents shopped, ate, and accessed services. The streets were quiet, the small lots allowed for outdoor space and privacy, and the residents were of all ages. As my husband and I near retirement, we would love the option to downsize into a similar neighbourhood in New Westminster. Our sons would also like an opportunity to afford housing for their families in this wonderful small city. It is time for this community to develop fee-simple row housing and duplex housing in traditional residential neighbourhoods; it would reinvigorate neighbourhoods, would boost the local economy, and would enable all generations an opportunity to be part of an integrated neighbourhood in housing that meets their needs.

City Beat City faces lawsuit Continued from page 1 “numerous emails” with the city where it was advised of the encroachment and demanded a remedy from the municipality. On Jan. 18 of this year, the company said following attempts to pay only a “nominal amount for the ongoing trespass,” the city gave notice that it intended to expropriate an interest in the lands and gave an expropriation notice. At the end of March, the suit claims the city delivered a certificate of approval for the expropriation of the lands. On June 21, the company said a survey was conducted that confirmed the trespass by the city on the lands. “Despite demands to vacate the property, the city has remained on the property and has failed, refused or neglected to vacate same since September 2014 without lawful excuse and in total disregard to Fortua’s ownership of, and interest in, the lands,” the lawsuit states. The company said it has suffered a loss of profit and opportunity and is seeking an injunction restraining the city from trespassing on the land and an order compelling the municipali-

ty to remove the structure. Fortua is also seeking special and punitive damages. “The city acted in a highhanded manner and in total disregard of Fortua’s rights of ownership by knowingly trespassing and building a structure on the lands and then retrospectively seeking to settle or expropriate,” the lawsuit stated. The suit claims the city’s conduct is oppressive and constitutes an “abuse of the extraordinary power of expropriation.” The city has yet to file a response to the lawsuit, and none of the allegations have been proven in court. The law firm representing Fortua told the Record it couldn’t comment on the case, while the city’s chief administrative officer, Lisa Spitale, didn’t respond to a request for comment. The $40-million facility opened its doors in September 2014. Anvil Centre is home to the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame, a Tourism New Westminster kiosk, a state of-the-art theatre, a conference centre and a number of cultural spaces where a variety of programs are offered.

New trustees at the helm By Cayley Dobie

cdobie@newwestrecord.ca

First-time trustees Kelly Slade-Kerr and Mark Gifford are now at the helm of the New Westminster board of education following board elections this week. Slade-Kerr was ac-

claimed as board chair at Tuesday night’s board of education meeting, but the role is not entirely unfamiliar to her. SladeKerr was first handed the gavel in October when three-time chair Jonina Campbell stepped down to focus on her provincial run for MLA of New

Westminster. Before that, Slade-Kerr was vicechair after beating Casey Cook for the title in last year’s board elections. Gifford, meanwhile, won his vice-chair position, defeating trustee Mary Lalji in a secret ballot. Gifford was first elect-

ed to the school board during the 2014 civic election, along with Slade-Kerr. Since joining the New Westminster board of education, he has served as its representative to the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association.

Board sends letter to government Continued from page 1 Trustee Mary Lalji suggested the time frame outlined in the motion was inadequate and more time might be needed to fix the dysfunction and problems in both embattled districts. “How can you have an election when they (the appointed trustee) haven’t had any time to do any work?” she asked trustees. Lalji also questioned how long it took former school district superintendent John Gaiptman to get the previously beleaguered New Westminster school board back on a path to financial wellness. Trustee Mark Gifford suggested Lalji’s question was part of

a “different conversation,” but trustee Jonina Campbell sided with Lalji and said when someone new comes into a district it takes a certain amount of time to fix the problems at hand. She also pointed out the B.C. School Trustees’ Association (BCSTA) and other boards had already sent their own letters in October and November. Campbell called the motion redundant and wondered if the action was even necessary considering the BCSTA’s letter was sent on behalf of all trustees in the province. Slade-Kerr retorted New West’s letter “underscores the motion made by the BCSTA and what other boards are doing.”

Trustee Michael Ewen, however, was adamant the issue at hand was about the democratic process, something he believes is at risk at the level of school boards. He questioned whether any fractious city councils have ever been fired by the province. The board is either in favour of democratic elections or not, Ewen said.While he admitted there could be a substantial cost to holding byelections, especially in Vancouver, “that’s the cost of democracy,” Ewen said. After a flurry of discussion, the motion passed four votes to three.

News New NWSS needs better music space, say parents

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO LOSE UP TO 20 POUNDS IN 20 DAYS?

Music auxiliary is lobbying to be sure choir and band students aren’t overlooked in the planning process Cayley Dobie

cdobie@newwestrecord.ca

NewWestminster Secondary School’s music auxiliary is urging parents to speak up to make sure the new high school has improved amenities for the music department. The music auxiliary is a parent-led group that supports the school’s music department through promotions and fundraisers for the approximately 300 students involved in choirs and bands at the school.The group is concerned that if parents don’t take part in the discussion about the NWSS replacement project, the needs of staff and students in the music department will be overlooked. “I don’t think they’ll forget about music, but we do fly under the radar,” said Cheryl Greenhalgh, chair of the music auxiliary. “I feel like we need to just advocate and remind everybody involved that that program is a really, really vibrant part of this school.” Greenhalgh’s oldest graduated from NWSS last June, while her second child, currently in Grade 10, is part of two choirs and one concert band.The department itself is home to a total of seven choirs, four jazz bands, four concert bands, an orchestral strings program, a guitar program and a music composition and technology program. “I can’t say enough about that program and what I see happening there for the kids, so I want to make sure the

specific needs of the program continue on,” she said. Greenhalgh would like to see three dedicated music teaching spaces at the school, a dedicated computer lab, access to a 600-seat performance venue, storage for a music library, school instruments, students’ instruments and other band equipment, an office with space for four teachers, and practice rooms for students. Currently, the high school has one band room and two choir rooms, so when there are several bands rehearsing at once, the small-

I can’t say enough about that program er bands have to relocate to classrooms in other parts of the school. Because of limited practice space, it’s not uncommon to find students practising outside or in the hallways, Greenhalgh said. “It’s just not very conducive to musicality,” she added. With the first deadline looming to comment on the high school replacement project, Greenhalgh is encouraging parents familiar with the music department to take part. She herself participated in one of the small group meetings organized by the district last month and plans to submit feedback along with other parents from the music auxiliary.

“I want the people who are going to be making the decisions – the trustees, the superintendent – to understand how important the program is to the parents and the students,” she said. The NewWestminster school district, meanwhile, was pleased to hear parents were getting involved in the feedback process. “That’s what the consultation process is all about,” district superintendent Pat Duncan told the Record. “We’re very, very happy to hear from all groups. Obviously, we have restrictions on amount of dollars that are available from the Ministry of Education, but if we don’t hear from our community, then we’re not going to be building the kind of school that our community is hoping to have.” While it’s too early to say what kind music facilities will be included in the new school, Duncan said there are provincial standards the district must abide by when it comes to the size of facilities, including the size of band rooms. As for when folks will start to see a design for the new high school, that is still a ways away, according to Duncan.When designs are revealed there will be time for residents to provide further feedback, he added. Folks have until Monday, Dec. 5 to provide feedback during the first round of consultations on the high school replacement project. Comments and concerns can be emailed to newnwss@sd40.bc.ca.

Choral riches for Christmas in New West Julie MacLellan

jmaclellan@newwestrecord.ca

There’s no sound that says “Christmas” more than the singing of a choir. Local choral music fans have an abundance of riches to choose from this holiday season, with a number of upcoming choral gems to take in. Here’s what’s in store for New West audiences: AMABILIS SINGERS This local 60-voice choir takes to the stage on Saturday, Dec. 10 for Christmas At Home, with a program of music that celebrates the magic of the season. Audiences will hear sparkling classical works by Vivaldi and Handel, alongside new arrangements of some familiar Christmas songs – Sandra Peter’s reworking of Silent Night and Stacey Gibbs’ arrangement of Go Tell It On the Mountain, among others. Less familiar seasonal work, such as Connor Koppin’s There is No Rose and Will Todd’s My Lord Has Come, will also round out the program. And, of course, come with your singing voice to take part in sing-alongs, and bring some cash for a Christmas raffle. The choir is directed by Ramona Luengen and accompanied by pianist Ingrid Verseveldt. The concert is at 2 p.m. at New Westminster Christian Reformed Church, 8255 13th Ave., Burnaby. Tickets are $20 regular, or free for children under 12. You can buy at the door or call 604-503-2074. See www.amabilissingers.

Audiences can enjoy Canadian Christmas pieces by Owen Underhill, Healey Willan and Matthew Emery, plus compositions for ensemble and organ by Patrick Hadley and William Mathias. And, of course, audience members can partake in some joyful sing-alongs of such favourites as Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, O Come AllYe Faithful and Joy To the World. The choir performs at Olivet Baptist Church at 7:30 p.m.Tickets are $30 regular, $25 seniors or $15 for students. See www. musicaintima.org.

Community NWSS students rise to the occasion for blood drive Cayley Dobie CLASS ACT

cdobie@newwestrecord.ca

Students in New Westminster Secondary School’s leadership program have a lot to be proud of lately. The group surpassed expectations during its recent blood drive for Canadian Blood Services. Of the 137 people who attended, 111 units were collected, 10 more units than the blood bank’s target for events, according to Canadian Blood Services. Christine McNulty, who teaches the leadership class that organized the event, couldn’t be happier with the outcome. “If you give kids a chance,

they’ll rise to the occasion. Not just the Grade 12s, but the 9s through the 12s; they all championed the cause,” she told the Record. The students managed to fill the clinic to 110 per cent, which is outstanding, McNulty said, and they’ve already just about filled the school’s Jan. 12, 2017 clinic (at press time there were only eight spots left). “I’m very proud,” she added. MORE NWSS NEWS Students at the high school are also running a food drive, and folks have until Friday, Dec. 2 to donate. Goods collected during the food drive will be given to families in need at the

high school. “Staff and students donate to make this season a little bit brighter for kids in our school community who have been referred to me,” McNulty said. McNulty’s students are accepting everything from cash to gift cards to nonperishable items for the families, and you don’t have to have any connection to the high school to donate. Folks in the community can drop off contributions at either the Pearson or Massey offices until end of day Friday (tomorrow). The high school is at 835 Eighth St. GLENBROOK’S GOT TALENT Students at École Glenbrook Middle School will

Tie Day finale a success

Take the time to drop by your local Princess Auto

The Royal City Jewellers and Loans’Tie Day has raised more than $200,000 for the food bank during its 20-year run. The Columbia Street business capped off its final Tie Day event on Nov. 26, when it raised about $6,000

for the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. Any guesses what celebrity’s tie fetched the highest price in the online auction? “Robert Bateman,” said Ken Basso, general manager of Royal City Jewellers and Loans. “I think his end-

ed up being around $350 and then Don Cherry’s was Number 2, his was close to that. Number 3, I’m not 100 per cent sure, but I think it was Justin Trudeau.” Popular meteorologist Mark Madryga was on hand to emcee the event.

MCBRIDE PLAZA of coffee beans dance in their heads Seasonal sipping is what Starbucks is best known for, with its signature drinks changing throughout the year. Whether those on your gift list are fans of ice cold Frappuccinos in the summer, pumpkin spice lattes in the fall, peppermint mochas in the winter or all of the above, there’s bound to be something at Starbucks for the coffee lover in your

life. Stopping at Starbucks while running errands at Royal Square is a stress-free way to cross people off your gift list while also relaxing and taking a moment for yourself amidst the holiday chaos. For fans of myths and legends, Starbucks has a new line of Siren Love tumblers, traveler cups and mugs with distinct designs. From the classic siren with billowing hair, to mermaid tattoos and woodprints, to the psychedelic tumbler, there are styles to represent all the unique individuals you know. As an added bonus, these fashionable containers are, of course, great for carting coffee. There are even options for those who like their drink with a dash of nostalgia. Together since ’71, a line celebrating Starbucks’

past, includes tumblers and mugs in hues of Starbuck’s original brown. The line has designs representing two of the original Starbucks neighbourhoods – Pike Place and Phinney in Seattle, Washington. For those who prefer to huddle over a warm cup of something at home, Starbucks carries other unique mugs, as well. From the playful fox with the tail handle mug to the set for a child and grownup – a wonderful way for family to bond with cups of cocoa – there are many choices available. Christmas decorations are always a good choice, particularly for hostess gifts and stocking stuffers. They also make a lovely

gift topper, in place of a bow. Starbucks has its own line of ornaments, including variations of its well-known red holiday cups. There are also miniature versions of its classic white and green cup, and even one of the cold cups, to bring memories of summer to a loved one’s tree. And for something a little different, there are ornamental trucks and coffee bags available, too. Of course, Starbucks also sells coffee, including their Christmas blend. A delicious smelling bag of coffee goes well with a decorative mug, or Starbucks Via Instant packets with a traveler cup for those who are often on the go. Coffee and cup makes a perfect pair, and a nice gift for cowork-

ers or those Secret Santa situations. There are also teas, syrups, accessories such as copper coffee scoops, and more. And for those who are hard to please, there are always gift cards. With aromatic, nostalgic, classic and unique options to choose from, Starbucks at Royal Square offers plenty of choices this holiday season. Just be sure to call ahead if you have a particular design in mind, to ensure the store has it. Royal Square is at 800 McBride Blvd.

Merry Christmas!

Replace a loved one’s broom-solo in the kitchen with an actual guitar of their own, and you’ll bring them lasting joy and possibly a new passion, to boot. A good acoustic guitar is a great place to start. The shop recommends Larrivee acoustic guitars, because of their tone and balance. The Larrivee acoustic guitars are also reasonably priced, which helps with a starter instrument. They come in a range of styles and a variety of wood types. The shop carries other lines of acoustic guitars, including Morgan, Takamine, Cort, Samick and Jay Turser. In addition to the guitars, they carry accessories and amps, as well, including acoustic amp lines such as Genz Benz, Roland and Laney.

DOWNTOWN over board games this season

During the hustle and bustle of holidays, it can be hard to make time for the simple pleasures, like drinking cocoa and playing a game with family and friends. A good game can bring people together and create great memories. And today, there are more varieties of board games than ever before, making them the perfect, versatile gift for the season. Board Game Warriors, located right downtown, carries a wide range of sets, from strategy to roleplaying games, and beyond. The choices can be overwhelming, but they have some great gift suggestions to help you out. Do you know someone who would make the perfect railway baron, or a family with trainobsessed children? Ticket to Ride might be just their thing. The cross-country train adventure allows players to claim and expand railway routes across North America. The game is ideal for 2*# 2# 6?% \FH&%IDW HT%D %.T32 H(Q E\R GH83 THB% 2HJ%D 30 minutes to an hour, so it works well for a gaggle of kids

who might not sit still for very long. For the Star Wars fan in your life, there is the X-Wing Miniatures Game. Fans will recognize the iconic Star Wars ships and now, they have the chance to lead their own Imperial or Rebel squadron. The game puts players right into the heart of the action, taking part in Star Wars 6I%6T32DR [FH&%ID 8H( ED% 23% 4E.8J0D2HI2 rules and select a mission, or build their own squadron including pilots (Luke Skywalker is a possibility).

Buy local campaign takes him to new heights NewWest lawyer has only had to venture outside the city once since starting his effort to shop in the city Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

Dale Darychuk has no plans to run away and joining the circus, but his Buy Local New West campaign is taking him to new heights. In June, the New Westminster resident launched his Buy Local New West campaign with the goal of buying all his goods and services in the Royal City for one year. So far, he’s only had to venture outside the city once. “I had to renew my driver’s licence and there’s no Motor Vehicle Branch in New Westminster, which seems kind of strange because everybody drives through here,” he said. “I had to go into Burnaby.” Darychuk said his campaign is based on the concept of living his whole life in New Westminster, so he’s branching out and exploring places and activities he may not normally do, such

as circus classes at the Vancouver Circus School at River Market. “I have joined the circus. I had a seven-week course in that and signed up again. I’m learning my skills there, doing a little bit of juggling. It’s fun,” he said. “They really do train people for the circus – I don’t think I’ll be

I am getting back into the theatre doing that anytime soon. It’s interesting to test your courage. I’ve started doing back drops and stuff like that.” Circus classes aren’t the only new pastime Darychuk has taken up since starting his campaign. He regularly posts about his campaign on the I Buy New West page on Facebook. “I have to look for my en-

tertainment here in New Westminster.That has certainly been entertaining,” he said. “I joined the Sapperton Fish and Game Club. I am getting back into doing some fishing and learning about their activities. I am getting back into theatre and getting involved with Patrick Street Productions.They are putting on a musical, A Little Night Music, in May here at the Anvil Centre. My law firm is also sponsoring a short story contest through the Lit Fest.The only criteria is it has to be set in New Westminster.We are seeing if we can get some great stories set in New Westminster.” On the food front, Darychuk often ventures from his office on Columbia Street to Old Crow Coffee Co. on Front Street, heads to a farm in Queensborough for fresh veggies and shops for men’s attire at stores in Queensborough Landing.The uptown res-

ident is impressed by the service at Buy-Low foods in Westminster Centre and frequents Queens Meat and Deli. “The new meat market, where the old one was – that’s a must,” he said of the former Queens Park Meat Market. “It’s run by a young

couple.Their meat is excellent.We have had the chicken and the sausages. He makes his own sausage.The Applewood bacon is just amazing.” With Christmas coming, Darychuk doesn’t anticipate any challenges finding gifts at places like Brick & Mor-

tar Living and Good Omen. “Good Omen just opened up here on Sixth Street near Brick & Mortar. It’s got jewelry, cards and candles and good gift items. She makes all of her own jewellery,” he said. “Most of her stuff is local.”

Expense book details budgets for people in 1950s Archie and Dale Miller

editorial@newwestrecord.ca

We have recently spent a lot of time sorting through material connected to the day-to-day story of the Lower Mainland.This material is not from the early days of this area or New Westminster, but rather it is from the years immediately following the Second World War. One simple 50-page booklet, the Dominion Family Expense Book, offers a

fascinating glimpse into the everyday lives of a generation from not that long ago and one we don’t often look at historically.The booklet, which cost 50 cents, has nine sections to help guide the family with its expenses. The sections that truly stand out supply information on various budgets, what you should spend your money on, as well as a curious section on “first aid” for your food budget.These sections often made us smile as they describe a dif-

ferent world at home with the family of, let’s say, 1950. The suggested budgets based on monthly income will be quite shocking to many. For instance, the income for a couple ranged from $100 to $500 per month; for a man, wife and two children from $125 to $500; for a bachelor, it ranged from $85 to $300; and for a single woman, referred to as a business wom-

an, from $70 to $250. If we use the couple as an example with an income of $250 per month, the suggested breakdown of funds was: savings $50, food $45, shelter (rent, etc.) $60, clothing $35, operating expenses $30, and advancement and recreation $30. In the “operating expenses” category we find line items for ice, gas, light, heat, phones, rent, interest, tax-

Tooth Brush Tips

Brush daily, especially at bedtime, Change your toothbrush at least once every three months or when it shows signs of wear. A frayed or worn toothbrush is much less effective at removing plaque from teeth and gums. If your toothbrush bristles wear out quickly, use less pressure—brushing too hard can damage your enamel and your gums. Please floss!

Blood pressure: Five myths, and the real truth DavidicusWong HEALTHWISE

editorial@newwestrecord.ca

Do you know your numbers? You know by heart your birthdate and age, home and cell numbers, your address and maybe even your social insurance number. But there’s one number every adult should know – your blood pressure. To understand why this measurement is so important, let’s explore five myths about blood pressure. MYTH #1: “IT’S JUST A NUMBER.” It’s more than a number. It’s one of your vital signs (e.g. heart rate and temperature, not your astrological sign). Blood pressure is the measurement of the pressure of blood inside your blood vessels, specifically, the brachial artery of the upper arm. A normal blood pressure of 120/80 (120 over 80) represents a systolic pressure of 120 mm Hg (when the heart contracts) and a diastolic pressure of 80 (when the heart relaxes). Of course, we need a nor-

One in five adults has high blood pressure

mal amount of pressure to deliver blood to all your vital organs, but chronically high blood pressure (hypertension) damages those organs and arteries themselves. MYTH #2: “I DON’T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT IT.” High blood pressure damages the walls of arteries throughout the body, including the kidneys, brain, heart, eyes and extremities. Over time, it contributes to atherosclerosis (narrowing of arteries), manifested as progressive kidney failure, loss of circulation to your feet and legs, dementia, loss of vision, erectile dysfunction, heart failure (weakness in the pumping of the heart) and angina (chest pain due to impaired circulation to the heart muscle). The catastrophic end results are premature heart attacks, strokes, blindness, kidney failure requiring dialysis, amputations of toes

and feet, aneurysms (the expansion and rupture of blood vessels in the chest, abdomen or brain) and end stage heart failure. MYTH #3: “IF I FEEL GOOD, IT CAN’T BE BAD.” A lot of us might assume that, if we feel good, we must be healthy and our blood pressure couldn’t be a problem.There’s a common misconception that individuals with high blood pressure are stressed out or angry like Donald Duck. Mickey Mouse is just as likely to be hypertensive. High blood pressure may be caused by medical conditions such as kidney disease or an overactive thyroid, by medications including ibuprofen or an unhealthy lifestyle; however, 95 per cent of people with high blood pressure have essential hypertension that is often genetic. Blood pressure also increases with age. In fact, one in five adults has high blood pressure, and your lifetime risk for developing hypertension is 90 per cent.Your risk may be even higher if you have a family history of high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney failure or strokes. MYTH #4: “IT’S ONLY HIGH AT THE DOCTOR’S OFFICE.” White coat syndrome is a genuine condition wherein the patient’s blood pressure is much higher when taken by a doctor or nurse than at home. I ask my patients to measure and record their home blood pressures with a reliable machine (that we compare to our office equipment). If blood pressure is only elevated at the clinic but never at home or work, we don’t prescribe medications. However, some people have a significant rise in their blood pressure with any stressful situation, including their work. If the blood pressure is high at least eight hours/day (i.e. at work) in addition to the medical clinic, it should be treated. MYTH #5: “IF I START A MEDICATION, I’M STUCK ON IT FOR LIFE.” As a physician, I want my patients to maintain safe blood pressure levels and avoid the long-term complications. Medications have a potent effect in lowering blood pressure, but they are not addictive and don’t make the body dependent

any more than before they are started. I have many patients who have been able to reduce the doses and numbers of medications they take through major lifestyle changes. Some now have normal blood pressures without any drugs. These potent lifestyle changes include quitting smoking, limiting or stopping alcohol, increased

physical activity, weight loss (if overweight), eating more fruits and vegetables and less red meat, and limiting sodium (salt) in the diet. So get to know your numbers – especially your blood pressure. Most adults should check their blood pressure at least once a year and more frequently if they have a personal or family history of high blood pressure.

HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS Marjorie Staal, executive director of New

Westminster Family Place, was upset after a Grinch stole a Christmas tree in Hyack Square in December 1993. Thirty to 40 kids from Family Place had made decorations – including a star tree-topper – for the tree that added a festive feel to Hyack Square. Staal is pictured above with Kayla, Meghan and Samantha in a photo that ran on the front page on Dec. 7, 1993. PHOTO RECORD FILES

How Do I Overcome Exercise and Diet Plateaus?

You weigh less, people are starting to take notice and more importantly you feel more energized & healthier. Then the plateau arrives and your progress grinds to screeching halt. Here’s LUKE RAMNATH how to push past it. 1. Upgrade Your Workouts: Try training your entire body each time you step into the gym rather than focusing on individual muscles. 2. Stay Active on Your Days Off: Aim for 30-60 minutes of activity - not in the gym! It could be a walk in the park, a game of basketball maybe a bike ride. 3. Track Your Food Intake: The simplest thing you can do and the one that will yield the biggest return on your investment—is track what you’re eating. Remember: what gets measured gets managed! 4. Do What Suits You Best: Simplify things! Take responsibility for what you want, make a plan and you will succeed.

In 2014, WESA made the biggest changes to BC estate planning law in about 80 years. Over December, January, and February, I’ll discuss six changes. STEPHEN GRAF This column is legal information, not legal advice. To make a will, please contact me. (1) WESA changes what happens if you die without a valid will or with a valid will that doesn’t give away your whole estate. To find heirs beyond your spouse and descendants, WESA looks down the lines of your parents’ descendants other than you. (2) Under WESA, a BC Supreme Court judge can still in effect rewrite your will if it doesn’t leave enough for your spouse or children. The limitation period expires after 180 days (formerly 6 months) from the date of probate.

Some key differences: Debt settlement requires each of your creditors to agree to reduce your debt, BLAIR MANTIN where a Consumer Proposal just requires 50% of your creditors to agree. Many creditors will not agree to debt settlement.

Hyacks’ B.C. hopes dashed by Jugglers NewWest’s drive to B.C. finals halted by No. 2-ranked Notre Dame Dan Olson

dolson@newwestrecord.ca

It was within their grasps, but unfortunately Notre Dame quarterback Steven Moretto wasn’t. The New Westminster Hyacks’ senior football season came to a halt Saturday in a tough 20-14 loss at B.C. Place, at the hands of the No. 2-ranked Notre Dame Jugglers and their star quarterback. “Our kids gave a lot, but I think this was a game where we needed strong tackling, a couple of big stops, and we just didn’t get it,” remarked Hyacks defensive coordinator Chad Oatway, who was part of a crew of coaches calling the shots in head coach Farhan Lalji’s absence. “All year long, we had big plays both sides of the ball.These kids worked so hard but today Notre Dame got the better of us.” Containing the AAA Offensive Player of theYear proved too big a task, as Moretto accounted for his team’s three touchdowns and guided Notre Dame to within one win of its 15th provincial gridiron title.

New commish aims to help WLA boost its brand League governors unanimously vote for one-time Salmonbellie with extensive experience in sports marketing

Dan Olson

dolson@newwestrecord.ca

With an impressive lacrosse and business pedigree, Paul Dal Monte has had his name surface whenever a Western Lacrosse Association team’s coaching or general managing position opened up. Due to a busy schedule, the Burnaby native always gratefully declined all offers. But the WLA finally found something that fit. Dal Monte was announced Monday as the league’s new commissioner, who will take over from Ernie Truant as the person working with the governors to manage the seven-team circuit, handle player discipline, and help expand its brand.

It’s a challenge the soon-to-be 58 year old was eager to take on. “One of the reasons I think I was approached, and threw my hat into the ring, is that the sport is something I have been involved with since I was eight years old,” said Dal Monte. “Over the many years I developed and continue to enjoy many friendships and connections with people in the game. “I think those personal connections will make the job enjoyable.” His involvement as a player – both as a junior with the Burnaby Cablevision and with the New Westminster senior Salmonbellies – was loaded with highlights, including three Minto crowns and three Mann Cup titles. He later co-coached the Burnaby junior Lakers alongside David Lough for

eight seasons, each time advancing to the Minto Cup championships, winning in 1998, 2000 and 2003. He moved on to head coach and serve as director of operations for the Vancouver Ravens during

I’m like Switzerland, I will be neutral... The only logo I’ll wear is that of the WLA.

its three years in the National Lacrosse League. In recent years he’s offered coaching training sessions around the province for B.C. Lacrosse.

Outside of lacrosse, Dal Monte spent 15 years as an executive in the Vancouver Canucks marketing department and more recently as a consultant for the Ottawa Senators, Saskatchewan Roughriders, Abbotsford Heat and Langley Events Centre. He is currently employed by Telus in the field of strategic initiatives. That extensive resume was an immediate ‘must-read’ for the WLA governors, who in the past have had trouble finding common ground on items big and small. The vote to hire Dal Monte ended up 7-0, said New West Salmonbellies president/ general manager and WLA chair Dan Richardson. “We wanted to go in a little different direction and branch out in

areas where we’ve been lacking,” said Richardson. “I think one of the problems we have is putting bums in the seats, despite having a great product with world-class and many pro players… We’ve got to re-connect with the lacrosse fan base and get the casual fan back into our arenas.” Richardson also noted Dal Monte’s experience will be utilized in searching for some league-wide sponsorship opportunities, while enhancing the WLA’s profile with the local media. “I think one of the reasons my candidacy was considered was that I spent a good portion of my professional (work) life in sports and the sports business,” said Dal Monte. “Sports has always been Continued on page 46
