A win for B.C. boys NewWest twins who lobbied for HPV vaccinations to be given to boys are happy with a change in provincial policy By Cornelia Naylor
Two New Westminster brothers are thrilled the province will soon provide free human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccinations to Grade 6 boys as well as girls, but they say health officials will now have a tough time convincing boys HPV is not a girls-only problem. “We’re going to have to encourage quite a lot of boys to get it because I told some of my friends and it went around the school a little, and there’s quite a lot of them who don’t want it,” 13-year-old Nelson Roy told the Record. “I think it’s just because it’s been a shot that’s only been given to girls in schools for quite a while. … Boys have been given the idea that they don’t need it.” The B.C. Health Ministry announced Friday HPV vaccination for Grade 6 boys would be included in the province’s publicly funded immunization program starting in September. Continued on page 9
ACTIVISTS: Thirteen-year-old twins Elliot, left, and Nelson Roy say health officials will have to work to convince boys to take advantage of free HPV
vaccinations after years of the shots being free for girls only. The brothers, who are now in Grade 8 at École Glenbrook Middle School, have been lobbying to have boys included in the free vaccinations, in a case that went to the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal in December 2014. PHOTO CORNELIA NAYLOR
City still working on ferry to Queensborough Mayor says city is ‘actively pursuing’ a pilot ferry service from Queensborugh to the Quay, with an eye to starting this spring or summer By Theresa McManus
The city is still working on plans to provide a pedestrian connection from the Quay to Queensborough. Last October, the city an-
nounced a pedestrian/cyclist crossing from Queensborough to the Quay would cost $39.1 million – far exceeding the $11 million available for the project. “We are still actively pursuing a pilot ferry service
that we are hoping to be able to initiate in the spring/ summer of 2017,” said Mayor Jonathan Cote. “I would anticipate a full public council report will be coming sometime over the next few months.”
As part of its decision to allow a destination casino in New Westminster, the City of New Westminster negotiated $10 million for a pedestrian crossing between the Quay and Queensborough neighbourhoods.The
city later reallocated $8 million from the pedestrian crossing and dock improvement projects to the Anvil Centre project, but $6 million still hasn’t been spent. “We are definitely going to be having discussions
with the lottery corporation because we want to make sure that we are still able to utilize that funding,” Cote said. “We may be able to use that funding for some of the docking areas for a Continued on page 8

Snow clearing plans were in the works But Arenex collapsed before city could return to take a closer look Theresa McManus
The Arenex in Queen’s Park came crashing down before the city had a chance to clear snow from its roof. Arenex staff contacted the fire department about suspicious noises in the roof on the afternoon of Dec. 19. Within hours, the roof had collapsed under the weight of the snow, destroying the 78-year-old building. “Our plan was to come back first thing in the morning and look at how we
Our expectation was the building would survive
could take some of the snow off the roof,” Fire Chief Tim Armstrong told council Monday night. “During the evening we determined it was too dangerous.” Prior to the collapse, the Arenex was evacuated and city personnel were sent to the scene. A structural engineer assessed the outside and inside of the snow-covered building. “One of the main trusses had a visual separation. There was also quite a bit of pressure.You could tell from the sounds in the building, creaking and groaning, that it was very much under stress,” Armstrong said. “We
basically condemned the building at that time, confirmed that there was nobody in the building, set up a collapse zone around the perimeter of the building and started to disconnect the utilities to the building.” Jim Lowrie, the city’s director of engineering, said two 113-foot-long trusses spanned the length of the building and provided the main support for the building’s timber roof. Photos taken on the night of the collapse showed one timber connection was pulling apart and another was showing signs of failure. “Our expectation was the building would survive and somebody would be looking at it closer the next morning at daylight,” Lowrie said, “but unfortunately the building didn’t last the night.” The city has hired a consulting engineer to assess the cause of the roof collapse. According to Lowrie, the building is insured and coverage is being provided for the full replacement value. He said some of the wood from the building and the wood floor may be able to be reused or repurposed and other materials will be recycled. ALTERNATE VENUES BEING CONSIDERED Dean Gibson, the city’s director of parks and recreation, said it is “not a

small task” to find alternate locations for the facility that’s used extensively by the community throughout the year, but outlined some plans made to date: ! Motoring Munchkins, a toddler drop-in recreational program, will be provided at Centennial Community Centre starting Jan. 23. ! Parent-and-tot and preschool gymnastics programs will proceed at the Vancouver Circus School in River Market, starting Jan. 23. ! A ball hockey league has been offered a chance to relocate to the Poirier Forum
in Coquitlam, effective Jan. 15. ! Volleyball and badminton drop-in participants are being encouraged to attend a program offered at Queensborough Middle School. Gibson said the city has identified 35 potential sites where it could offer programs in the next year and will consider how they fit the city’s needs. Sites being considered include churches, schools, warehouses, educational institutions, private businesses and retail spaces, both in New Westminster and neighbouring
communities. “Our challenge is to be able to get into venues where we can maximize our program offerings and do so with predictability and continuity,” he said. “Many of the venues that are available in the community are available for short periods of time or with a very infrequent schedule.That doesn’t serve us well in the type of programming that we want to do.” Staff hope to have more details about alternate venues later this month and are “fairly confident” they’ll be
able to reinstate core programs offered at the Arenex within the next month or two, provided the equipment recovered from the arena hasn’t been damaged and is usable. Until a permanent solution is found, Gibson said the city needs a dedicated facility that gives staff control around scheduling. Staff will report back to council in early February about the feasibility of a clear-span fabric structure – known as a bubble – that could be used for a few years.
Winter weather has been costly for city hall Theresa McManus
Clearing streets and sidewalks of snow and ice isn’t cheap. Dave Cole, the city’s assistant manager of engineering operations, said the city activated its snow and ice response plan in response to seven “significant” events where snow has accumulated on the ground: Dec. 5, 9, 11, 17, 18, 26 and 31. He noted that on Dec. 17 and 18, 40 centimetres of snow fell at the city’s works yard. “It’s really tough to predict what is going to come,” he told council Monday night. “We often hear from
the weatherman, like we did on Dec. 5, that we were going to get one centimetre, and ended up with 10.We have to be prepared to react to that.” So far this season, the city has spent $386,000 on its snow and ice response plan: $236,000 on buying 2,300 tonnes of road salt; $16,000 on 655 tonnes of road sand; $28,000 on 400,000 on ice melt; and $106,000 for 1,900 hours of overtime.The city has also used 18,000 litres of brine. The city’s response plan includes detailed routes for clearing city streets, sidewalks and facilities like Royal Columbian Hospital, care
It’s really tough to predict what is going to come. … We have to be prepared to react to that. facilities and school zones. He said the primary response is to have bare asphalt on main routes, and once that goal is achieved crews move on to clear side streets in neighbourhoods, with lanes being the city’s lowest priority. According to Cole, the city faced a few challenges with the type and number of winter events it’s had to respond to in the past
month.These include the times and duration of snowfall, the salt supply and the fact that much of the snow fell during the holiday season. “This week, we are looking at another arctic blast coming through with subzero temperatures,” Cole said. “We could see another snowfall event on the weekend.” According to Cole, the
city has dealt with more than 386 complaints regarding snow clearing, and it has issued 218 warning notices and 18 tickets. He said the city’s enforcement approach for this season has been more of an educational approach where they have gone out and tried to speak with merchants and residents about clearing sidewalks and making them aware of the city’s bylaw. “We are working with them. Again, with the number of events, as long as the resident is making an attempt to clear the snow from the sidewalk then they haven’t been ticketed,” he said. “They receive warn-
ing notices. I know residents themselves are faced with an ice-melt shortage.They can’t go to the local hardware store and pick up a bag of ice melt to help break through the ice that has been building up.” Mayor Jonathan Cote said the city last reviewed its snow response plan after the winter of 2008. After this winter, he said it will evaluate what’s been done right and how it can address some of the issues that have come up this winter. See an extended story at www.newwestrecord.ca.

News Drug-induced psychosis led to killing, court hears Cayley Dobie
It was a delusion fuelled by drugs that caused a young man to kill a 79-yearold woman a year-and-ahalf ago, according to statements made in court last week. The details of Julien Levasseur’s drug use on the day he attacked Charan Dhandwar were presented at the 24-year-old’s sentencing hearing held in New Westminster provincial court last Thursday. Dhandwar was killed on June 3, 2015. She had been visiting a friend’s house and was walking home along Eighth Avenue near Lord Tweedsmuir Elementary School around 6:30 p.m. when Levasseur confronted her. He was in what both Crown counsel and the defence attorney called a druginduced psychosis when he mistook Dhandwar as a “bad entity that needed to be slayed.”
The beating Levasseur delivered while high on LSD and MDMA, a mixture known as candy flipping, was “prolonged, brutal and vicious,” Crown counsel Satinder Sidhu said. Dhandwar never fought back. She died quickly, according to the medical examiner’s report, but Levasseur continued his attack, motivated by a delusion in which he believed humanity was trapped on earth by an evil force. Dhandwar’s death has left her family broken, her grandson Ryan Dhillon told the court in his victim impact statement. “Innocence was met with violence that day,” he said, adding her death has left a void in his family. It’s an absence, he remarked, as “conspicuous as her presence once was.” Dhillon was one of a dozen family members who gathered in the courtroom last week.They listened as the Crown and defence
laid out their arguments for Levasseur’s sentencing. He pleaded guilty to manslaughter at a hearing last year, and the Crown is recommending he serve eight to 10 years in prison while the defence is requesting a shorter sentence of five to seven years. Speaking to Dhandwar’s family and the community at large during the sentencing hearing, Levasseur apologized for the “horror and suffering” his actions have caused. “A life was lost on what should have been a carefree afternoon,” he told the court. “I did one of the most terrible things ever.” Levasseur said that had the roles been reversed and his grandmother had been killed, he would feel the same way Dhandwar’s family felt, adding he was prepared to accept the consequences of his actions. The judge is scheduled to make her sentencing decision on Monday, Jan. 30.

Opinion OUR VIEW
Young activists offer hope for the future What if you lobbied the government for a change in policy – and the government actually listened? Two New Westminster brothers have the satisfaction of achieving exactly that, now that the province has announced free HPV vaccinations will be available for both boys and girls. It’s something twin brothers Nelson and Elliot Roy have been asking for since they were in Grade 6. At that time, girls in their class were able to get the
HPV vaccination for free, but boys weren’t.The twins – knowing that human papillomavirus is linked to cancers in men as well as women – thought that was unfair. And, instead of just complaining to themselves, they set about taking action. The boys, who are now in Grade 8 at Glenbrook Middle School, started their quest with a letter to this very newspaper.They also took their case to the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal in
2014. It went to a mediation session in September 2015, after which the government asked for more time. Since then, the government has changed its stance on the policy that sparked the complaint in the first place. Starting in September, the HPV vaccinations will be available for boys in Grade 6. Now, we know it wasn’t Nelson and Elliot alone who got this policy changed.The Canadian
Cancer Society and 25 other health organizations also called for the policy change. And the government itself said the change came as a result of a cost-benefit analysis that supported the expanded coverage. Nonetheless, Nelson and Elliot should feel proud of themselves for having done something far too few of us ever take the initiative to do. How many of us, faced with a situation that feels unfair, do anything other than complain about it? How
many of us bother to research an issue, write letters to those who have the power to make change, or take any other positive steps towards making a difference? More often, we just sit back, grumbling, and act as armchair critics to the world at large – as if we’re not part of the world and it’s somehow not our responsibility to care. Nelson and Elliot’s fight isn’t quite over yet.Though Grade 6 boys will now get the free shot, the twins
themselves are no longer eligible. (At the same time, girls who have passed Grade 6 age are still eligible for free shots until age 26.) Whatever steps they take from here on out and whatever results from their continued efforts, we salute the dedication of these two teenagers. In a world full of whiners, thank you for leading the way as concerned and thoughtful citizens.
MY VIEW KEITH BALDREY
A shiny future for B.C. schools
Coming soon to a vacant school field near you: portables, lots and lots of portables. While much attention has been paid to the $50 million that will hire more than 1,000 teachers as a result of the interim agreement between the B.C. government and the B.C.Teachers’ Federation, the fact that more classroom space will have to be created to accommodate those new hires is getting less ink. As part of the agreement, classroom sizes will have to be smaller. Simply put, more teachers mean more classrooms. The influx is unlikely to cause much chaos and confusion through the rest of the current school year, but starting next September, look out. The magnitude of what lies ahead can be seen in the affidavits more than a half dozen school superintendents filed as part of the long-running court case over the B.C. government’s arbitrary decision to strip language dictating class size and composition from the teachers’ collective agreement.The superintendents estimated what it would take to meet the classroom requirements should the language be restored in the contract. The superintendent of Surrey, for example, said it would take the construction of 51 more portables (at a cost of $4.75 million) to meet the class size and composition standards set out in the old language.
The final numbers of portables (or school expansions, or even the reopening of closed schools) won’t be known for some time yet, as talks continue between the government and the union on how to accommodate the old language. The fact an interim agreement was reached so quickly after the Supreme Court of Canada’s embarrassing smack down of the government’s case speaks volumes of the strength of the BCTF’s position here. The BCTF estimates about 3,500 teaching positions (which includes classroom teachers, librarians, counsellors, special education teachers, etc.) were eliminated across the province when the old language was scrapped.The interim deal restores almost onethird of those positions. It’s unclear whether all of the rest will be restored, but it’s likely the lion’s share of them will be. And there will be a final deal, although it may take some time to reach one. In the meantime, I expect the government to include funding for the final agreement (probably around $300 million, not including the costs for portables) in the spring budget (although hidden in contingencies and the like). This all adds up to a winwin situation for teachers and for students. Too bad it took so long for the government to be brought to heel. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Making the bridge safer After years of pressure from local police, the provincial government opened tenders for upgrades to suicideproof the Pattullo Bridge. Because of its climbable truss and girders, the span had been a popular spot for those looking to jump to their deaths.The improvements were designed to stop people from accessing the top portion of the truss. “I’m not sure we can stop people from jumping from the deck or sidewalk level,” bridge engineer Allan Galambos said.

No one’s taking action on homeless people
Don’t let ice rage destroy you: Readers respond to editorial
Dear Editor: I just got back from walking my dogs in uptown New Westminster when I came across a homeless guy setting up his bed by Tim Hortons, and before I could ask him if he’s OK, he stands up and proceeds to urinate on the street in front of me. I tell him that it’s not a good idea, and he says that my dogs do it so why can’t he. In a moment of frustration I blurt out that if he were my dog I would have him put down. This isn’t the first time I’ve run into this guy, a young blond guy that always carries his sleeping bag in a backpack. We know who he is and obviously he has issues. Sleeping outside in –4 degrees instead of going to a shelter tells me that he is incapable of making rational decisions, but no one will act. The police, whom I’ve called, will maybe ask him to move along. I’m done. My wife and I are moving. I love this city that I was born and raised in, but if the people that we’ve elected to govern it can’t or won’t do anything to address the situation, then I’ll pay my property taxes some where else. Dan Riordan, New Westminster
Arenex collapse raises questions about risk Dear Editor: My children, too, have enjoyed classes at the Arenex, and I’m relieved no one was injured. As a taxpayer, I question the city’s risk management protocols. Hopefully, reliance on good luck is not one of them. I understand installation of insulation that impeded the melting of snow may have been a factor contributing to the excess snow load and roof collapse. What recourse is available regarding this fated decision? Hopefully our city is following up on this and financial relief is forthcoming to help replace the structure. Paul Esslinger, New Westminster
Kudos to a dedicated newspaper carrier Dear Editor: Just wanted to give one of your carriers a big shoutout and season’s greetings. Robert, who has been delivering our papers for some time now, is deserving of recognition and appreciative words. No matter what the weather, he always makes sure our paper is safe and dry, even trudging up our front steps. I have seen him struggling in pouring rain and in this latest snowfall. He is so dedicated and kind, it puts others to shame. Some of the big stores won’t even deliver in this snow, but Robert is out there making sure his task is completed. I truly wish everyone could see this example of a good work ethic. He should be proud of a job well done. I wish him only the very best in the new year with better health, good friends and all that is important in life. Diane Adams, New Westminster JOIN THE CONVERSATION

Brad Cavanagh This is all fine and good but when people are trapped in their houses because they can’t walk the sidewalks, there’s a problem. When people are falling and twisting ankles and breaking arms, there’s a problem. Sure, have compassion for the small number of people who can’t shovel, but the majority of people can. Your opinion article also ignores stratas and businesses, as they have no excuse whatsoever for not clearing the sidewalks. Kara McNair I mean, there’s also a legal requirement to keep your walks shovelled, not one to prevent earthquakes. Not shovelling (or paying to shovel, or whatever) is really falling down on the social compact - the community pays for these sidewalks to exist for the benefit of all via taxes, but part of the deal is that the people who live in front of them are required to maintain that aspect of them. No such compact exists around earthquakes. Carol Mason I’m 67. I walk with a cane. I have bad knees. I’m afraid of icy sidewalks. I can drive places with no problem (snow tires), but when I get there, can I get from my car to my location? I don’t get angry – I just don’t go unless I absolutely have to.

Ferry plans moving forward Continued from page 1 ferry service.” Cote said there may also be an opportunity to reallocate some of the funds toward other initiatives on the waterfront. “There’s no doubt the city is going to be working hard to make sure that we don’t lose that funding,” he said. “We just need to find the appropriate ways that funding can be reallocated.” Lisa Spitale, the city’s chief administrative officer, said staff is currently considering the feasibility of using those funds for some of the physical improvements required on land in the downtown and Queensborough to operate the ferry service and greenway improvements in the downtown, and the cost of those projects. She’s optimistic the city can convince the prov-
ince that the projects are in keeping with the original core principles of the DAC funding, which centred around initiatives supporting tourism and economic development in the two neighbourhoods where the casino operated. “I suspect within the next two months we will have a lot more details that we are able to report back on,” she said. Spitale hasn’t given up hope that the city will one day be able to build a pedestrian/cyclist crossing between the Queensborough and Quayside neighbourhoods. Along with the project’s cost, she said the timeline for spending the DAC funding made the project challenging for the city. “I always thought it was a wonderful project – for all the right reasons. I am still
Show me the money Where’s the money coming from? In 2007, the city signed the destination casino project development agreement that detailed projects that would be eligible for destination casino gaming funds known as development assistance compensation – DAC. In addition to the city, the provincial government, the B.C. Lottery Corporation and the casino operator signed the four-party agreement. How much did the city get? The city negotiated up to $60.5 million for five priority projects in the downtown and Queensborough neighbourhoods – the two areas where the casino has been located. Is there a deadline for use of the DAC funds? The original agreement outlined the dates each of the five priority projects must be completed by, with
the final project slated to be complete by 2017. The city, however, has successfully negotiated extensions for some of the projects, including Anvil Centre. What are the five priority projects and how much was allocated to each project? ! $5 million for parkland improvements in Queensborough (Dec. 31, 2010 deadline) ! $35 million for a multiuse downtown civic facility – Anvil Centre (Dec. 31, 2015 deadline) ! $6.2 million for facilities at Queensborough Community Centre (Dec. 31, 2013 deadline) ! $10 million for a Queensborough/waterfront pedestrian crossing (Dec. 31, 2016 deadline) ! $4 million for riverfront dock and facility improvements (Dec. 31, 2017 deadline)

hopeful that we can find a way. Maybe it’s working a bit more closely with TransLink and others that are in the field on finding a different solution, and isn’t a solution that’s dictated by certain timelines,” she said. “When you are walking down there, it feels close and it feels like the right thing to do. I hope we actually find a way.”

New Westminster RECORD THURSDAY January 12, 2017 9
City Boys will not be eligible for free catch-up shots Continued from page 1 Nelson and his twin brother Elliot, both now Grade 8 students at École Glenbrook Middle School, first criticized the government for excluding boys from the vaccination in a letter to the Record when they were in Grade 6. The family had watched a documentary on HPV – a virus that causes 70 per cent of cervical cancers in women and is associated with cancers of the mouth, nose, throat, anus and penis in men. “We heard what it could do to people and apparently how the vaccine should be taken around 12 or 11,” Nelson told the Record in September 2014, “so then when the vaccinations at our school came up and it said that only girls could, we were a bit upset about it.” They eventually took their protest to the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal in December 2014, and they were among a chorus of critics, including the Canadian Cancer Society and 25 other health organizations, that called on the government last year to include boys in HPV vaccinations. The boys’ human rights complaint went to a mediation session in September 2015, after which the
government asked for more time, according to the twins’ father, Michel Roy. “They were going to have to resolve it one way or another, and the policy change was, of course, the thing that we were seeking all along,” he said, “so I really hope that the boys did make a difference.” Michel credits the boys’ letter to the Record for getting the ball rolling, but he said it wasn’t always easy for the twins to keep up the fight. “There were many times when Nelson and Elliot would say, ‘Nobody cares. Our friends at school don’t understand.They think we’re crazy because we want more shots.’” Michel hopes the policy change announced last week has driven home an important lesson for his boys: “If you see something that is unfair, there are ways of resolving these things and making fairness happen.” The government, meanwhile, said it was including boys in the vaccinations because uptake among Grade 6 girls hadn’t reached levels needed to promote herd immunity, and the cost of the vaccine had come down substantially. “As a result of these factors, a review of the cost-
We’re not going to quite give up yet benefit analysis by public health officials supported the expanded coverage,” stated a Health Ministry press release.
Despite the policy change, Nelson and Elliot will wait to find out all the details before dropping their human rights complaint. Under the new policy, for example, boys like the New West twins, who missed the opportunity for free shots in Grade 6, will not be eligible for a free catch-up shot, according to the Health Ministry.
Girls who missed them, meanwhile, are still eligible for free shots until age 26. The vaccination costs $300 to $400 for a series of two or three shots, depending on the type. “We’re not going to quite give up yet,” said Michel. When it comes to the changes to the province’s immunization program, meanwhile, the twins’ dad
agrees with Nelson that health officials will now have to work hard to get boys on board after years of girl-centric marketing. “So many parents don’t even know about HPV,” Michel said. “Everyone you mention it to, they say, ‘Really? I didn’t know boys could get it.’That speaks to not quite a bang-up sell job.”

Way Off-Broadway at the Heritage Grill Fringe performances featured onWednesday nights New Westminster residents can enjoy thoughtprovoking original theatre in an intimate cabaret setting, thanks to a new performance series at Heritage Grill. The backroom at the Heritage Grill is playing host to Way Off-Broadway Wednesdays.The performance series will feature some of the finest from the Canadian fringe festival circuit – poets, storytellers, comics and more. The performance series is building on the success of the Berlin Waltz performances at the Heritage Grill in November and December. It’s continuing in the new
year every Wednesday at the downtown eatery, with allages performances starting at 7:30 p.m. On Wednesday, Jan. 18, local audiences can enjoy Jessie Award winner and fringe festival legend TJ Dawe, with a preview of his brand-new show, Roller Coaster – which weaves together a story about a visit to Orlando’s theme parks with his anxieties about a Donald Trump-led world, the collapse of civilization and an exploration of who our real gods are. Admission is by donation. On Wednesday, Jan. 25, the performance gets interactive with Story Story LIE, hosted by Jo Dworschak.
Top local performers – Jan Bannister, Devon More, Katrina Bennett, Morriss Bartlett and Megan Milton – will share intimate, hilarious and often embarrassing stories that seem too odd to be true. It’s up to the audience to figure out which one is telling the lie. This is a ticketed performance.Tickets are $6 in advance through www.event brite.ca or $8 at the door. The Heritage Grill is at 447 Columbia St. For more on the performance series, look up Way Off-Broadway Wednesdays on Facebook, www. facebook.com/wayoffwed.

Arts council earns ‘community builder’ honours Julie MacLellan LIVELY CITY
Happy new year, all! I’ll open my first column of 2017 with a look back at the year that was, finishing off my year-end “awards” roundup.The main instalment of these awards ran in the Thursday, Jan. 5 edition of the Record (and online at www.newwestrecord.ca), but due to space constraints in the print edition, a couple of awards were left off the list. Here they are, to round up the year: BEST NEW COMMUNITY HUB
If you haven’t been to the Anvil Centre Theatre yet, make it your mission to do so in 2017.The wonderful little theatre in the downtown centre is becoming quite a hub for performances and events of all kinds. Over the past year, we’ve seen all kinds of programming at the theatre – programming that, in past years, local audiences would have had to travel to Vancouver for. Performances offer something for all ages – from the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s Tiny Tots series and Green Thumb Theatre for the young folks in the house, to an array of musical and theatrical performances for the grown-
up set. Coming in the new year, local audiences will be able to enjoy first-class musical theatre from the Arts Club on Tour (with Bittergirl:The Musical in February) and from our very own Patrick Street Productions, which is bringing A Little Night Music to the stage in May. Having a theatre of this kind right here in our own backyard – and in the downtown core, right next to SkyTrain – is an amazing boon for the city. And it’s sure to be part of the reason why before you know it,Vancouver audiences will be looking to New Westminster when they want to know what’s hot on the cul-

tural scene. And last but most definitely not least ….
BEST COMMUNITY BUILDER I mentioned the Arts Council of New Westminster in my roundup last year, and I just can’t help but do it again. It seems that just about every week, I was receiving a notice about another event or new series happening in the city – all thanks to this wonderful, volunteer-driven organization. (In fact, according to our archives, there were some 63 mentions of the Arts Council of New Westminster in the paper over the past year, which goes
some distance to explaining just what a pervasive force this group is in the city.) What with the Gallery at Queen’s Park, Music by the River, the Uptown Unplugged series, the ArtsToGo workshops at Royal City Centre and in various community locations, the Last Mondays at the Movies series, the new Artovations workshop series exploring the business side of the artist’s life (in partnership with the New West Chamber of Commerce and 100 Braid Street Studios) and a whole lot more, this group has been responsible for helping the arts to flourish in our fair city. Their willingness to ex-
tend hands and work with all kinds of partner groups and individuals makes them a hub for all things artistic and cultural in New Westminster. To everyone involved with the organization, I extend my thanks. That winds up my awards for the year – but it certainly doesn’t wind up the happenings on the arts scene. Based on the number of calls and emails I’ve already received, 2017 is going to be another happening year on the New West arts scene. Stay tuned.

Stem cell drive in the ’Borough Saturday NewWestminster woman has organized the drive on behalf of her brother, who has leukemia Cornelia Naylor
A New West resident is urging her community to step up and become potential stem cells donors in honour of her younger brother. Amar Sohi has organized a stem cell drive on behalf of her brother, Avtar, this Saturday (Jan. 14) from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Gurdwara Sahib Sukh Sagar (the Sikh temple) in Queensborough. Twenty-four-year-old Avtar was diagnosed in September with chronic myelomonocytic leukemia, a cancer of the blood-forming cells in the bone marrow. In order for his disease to be cured, he needs a stem cell or bone marrow transplant. People who need life-saving stem cells or marrow are more likely to find a match among donors of their own ethnic background, according to Canadian Blood Ser-
vices, so Sohi is targeting the Queensborough event at members of the South Asian community between the ages of 17 and 35. “DNAs connect to your

ethnic heritage,” Canadian Blood Services’Trudi Goels told the Record, “and that’s what this is, a DNA match between patient and donor. …It doesn’t mean that you’re always going to find someone directly from your ethnic heritage, but you are more likely to.”
Prospective donors have to be between 17 and 35 to register with Canadian Blood Services’ searchable OneMatch stem cell and marrow database, but they can be matched with a patient till age 60. At a stem cell drive, would-be donors answer a few questions, fill out a questionnaire and provide a swab from the inside of their cheeks – the process takes about 10 minutes. It’s time well spent, according to Sohi. “If not for my brother, than for someone else,” she said. “If just one person finds a match through this, it’s more than we could have asked for.” Gurdwara Sahib Sukh Sagar is at 347 Wood St. in Queensborough.

A journey of truth and reconciliation Residents invited to a panel discussion on Thursday, Jan. 19 Theresa McManus
New Westminster residents are invited to join in on a journey of truth and reconciliation. Babs Kelly’s grandfather was taken away to a residential school when he was just a young boy. “He came out of residential school broken, and we all inherited and internalized that brokenness,” she said. “The family story goes that Chief Dan George dipped me in the chuck in hopes of giving me something to see through the hard times. I like to think of that as my first moment of truth. My family’s truth includes a legacy of violence, addiction, survival sex work, institutionalization, selfharm, incarceration, sexual abuse and the fear of having our children seized.” But the New West resident noted her family’s legacy also includes the possibility of healing, not just through the individual efforts and the support of their loved ones, but with the support and acceptance of the truth in the communities where they live. “I was asked to bear witness and speak this truth to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, to share my story of the legacy of the intentional harm that was done to my family,” she recently told city council. “I was asked to face my

shame, to keenly feel the pain of systemic and personal racism, to understand the solitude of social disconnection born out of otherness.” Kelly invites community members to take part in the reconciliation process by attending an upcoming event in New West: Community Stories of Truth and Reconciliation. “Reconciliation is an opportunity, a hope and a way forward with so many of the challenges that we face. It is a way of understanding

The Quayside Community Board may have postponed this year’s boardwalk festival and sale, but it didn’t leave charities out in the cold. Along with providing entertainment, vendors and food for locals to enjoy, the annual sale has also raised funds for local charities. While this year’s sale didn’t take place, the board recently donated $1,000 to the Group of Five and $1,000 to the Lions Club of New Westminster. “These charities depend on donations to make a lot of good happen in our city and beyond,” board president Vickie Turvey said in a press release. “We all know the good work of the Group of Five and their campaign to buy equipment for Royal Columbian Hospital, and the Lions Club, who uses this specific donation to purchase Christmas
gifts for the seniors at Buchanan Lodge.” The Quayside Community Board unanimously agreed to donate the funds, a portion of the money set aside for the next year’s festival, to the two groups to help them achieve their goals.To date, the Quayside Community Board has supported the community by donating more than $10,000 to several local notfor-profit groups.

Witness Blanket at city museum A monument that symbolizes ongoing reconciliation, pays tribute to children and recognizes the atrocities of the residential school era is on display in New Westminster. Kwagiulth artist and master carver Carey Newman created the Witness Blanket after months of collecting items for the project. “The Witness Blanket was created out of hundreds of items reclaimed from residential schools, churches, government buildings and traditional cultural structures that include friendship centres, treatment centres and more.We are very fortunate to have this piece of artwork in New Westminster,” said New Westminster resident Nadine Naka-
gawa. “The Witness Blanket is a national monument to recognize the atrocities of the Indian residential school era and is a symbol of ongoing reconciliation. It’s been a year since the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada completed their work, and it seems like a really fitting time to open a dialogue about truth and reconciliation here in New Westminster.” Witness Blanket is the latest exhibition at the New Westminster Museum and Archives. It will be on display until April 21. The museum is on the third floor of Anvil Centre, 777 Columbia St. It’s open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and until 8 p.m. on Thursdays.
Reconciliation talk Continued from page 14 about what truth and reconciliation means for people living in New Westminster,” said New West resident Nadine Nakagawa, one of the event’s organizers. “The panel discussion will be followed by a series of kitchen table dialogues which will be smaller scale community-led discussions from Jan. 25 to Feb. 18.” Following the community discussions, the organizers will report back to city council about what they heard. “I know a few years ago the City of New Westminster kind of started a journey down a reconciliation process with the Chinese community and it’s been a very rewarding experience,” said Mayor Jonathan Cote. “I think coming out
of the report from last year on truth and reconciliation there’s definitely elements that speak to the municipal level.” The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada goals included: acknowledging residential school experiences, impacts and consequences; promoting awareness and public education of Canadians about Indian residential schools; and supporting, promoting and facilitating truth and reconciliation events at the national and community level.The commission’s report, released in December 2015, included 94 recommendations.

Business Paciﬁc Breeze joins forces with Revelation winery Theresa McManus
MOVERS & SHAKERS
A New Westminsterbased winery will be expanding the range and scale of its wine production. Pacific Breeze Urban Winery recently merged with Revelation Cellars to increase production and build a second urban winery in Vancouver.The awardwinning winery, located on Stewardson Way, produces both B.C.VQA wines and wines made from grapes imported from California’s Napa and Sonoma valleys and Washington State. “Pacific Breeze already makes some of the finest wines in North America, and we were very impressed to see how their winemakers have sourced grapes from some of the best vineyards in the world, to produce wines that are truly unique in Canada,” Revelation CEO Bob Fraser said in a press release. “Our intention is to invest in that already fine product and combine it with our own marketing model to greatly increase their sales and revenues.” Revelation Cellars and Pacific Breeze signed an agreement in August to merge the companies under the Revelation banner. Under the terms of the agreement, Revelation will take over operation of the winery, while the founders of Pacific Breeze will join Revelation as partners.The press release stated that a core aspect of the agreement is the intention to expand the range and the scale of the new company’s wine production. “By joining forces with Revelation, we can produce
wines that express the local terroir from regions around the world,” said Pacific Breeze co-founder Maurice Hamilton. “Imagine a Malbec made here in Canada, with grapes accessed from a premiere vineyard in Argentina, or a Bordeaux-style wine made with grapes we brought in from France.” The company is currently raising $6.2 million to help finance its expansion in New Westminster and Vancouver, with the goal of increasing production to 10,000 cases per year in 2018. Pacific BreezeWinery, which has been in operation since 2005 and released its first vintage in 2007, was founded as a small-scale craft winery with production averaging 3,000 cases per year. KEY WEST FORD HELPS ADDRESS HUNGER There’s nothing scary about KeyWest Ford’s commitment to helping combat childhood hunger. Key West Ford recently held its We Scare Hunger campaign to raise funds and food for the food bank. Employees delivered more than 6,000 pounds of food to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society, after raising $10,650 in the campaign. How much food is that? Enough to fill 10 bins at the food bank’s warehouse. It took two hours for a team of people to unload. Key West Ford invited its employees, customers and community members to bring non-perishable food items into the dealership and to make donations through a GoFundMe page. Key West Ford also matched all employee donations dollar for dollar.
Former Canucks goalie Kirk McLean and former New Westminster mayor Wayne Wright dropped by the dealership to celebrate the campaign’s success with Key West employees. NEW WEST BUSINESSES NOMINATED FOR PROVINCIAL AWARDS A number of New West businesses were recently nominated for Small Business B.C. Awards.

ASK A DAYCARE SPECIALIST
What is the Montessori perspective on positive reinforcement?
Positive reinforcement is an essential tool to help children recognize the benefits of a job well done. When your child helps tidy a messy PATRICIA LOMELLI room, reward him/her by saying, “Thank you so much for your help and effort. Now we have a clean space to be in”. Or, “It’s so much easier to find things when this room is organized”. It takes practice and patience because children need to explore their options. They’re usually testing our reactions and learning from the result. When we model positive attitudes towards ourselves, it’s really easy for children to grasp that they are also capable of doing amazing things in their day to day routine. We use this tool in our classroom every day. Positive reinforcement helps us increase the behaviour we want to see more frequently in our children.

ASK AN OPTOMETRIST
Should I buy my contact lenses online? Please Advise?
Yes, you can buy your contacts online only if you have had a proper eye exam with an Optometrist who has provided you with a DR. S. BACHRA valid “Contact Lens Fitting”. If you Co-Owner & Chief Optometrist try to guess what product to buy, you could end up doing damage to your eye and/ or your vision and wasting a lot of your money. Buying contacts online can sometimes mean lower prices for you and if you are buying online, we recommend Contactsforless.ca because they are based right here in New Westminster and they give 51% of their profits to help the planet. Remember that your eyeglass prescription is not the same as a contact lens prescription, so let the doctor know you also need the contact lens fitting.

ASK A NURSE
What should one expect for cleanliness at a tanning salon? Tanning salons are places where we go to take a few minutes for ourselves, relax, reﬂect on the day, and clear our minds. Everything from the way you are greeted when you walk in to the scent of your new tanning lotion to how the towels are provided in the rooms plays a role in the overall tanning experience. Here at Beach House Tanning & Swimwear we strive to make your whole tanning experience as pleasant and stress free as possible… that’s why we call it “Complete Tanning Freedom!” Cleanliness is taken very seriously at Beach House Tanning & Swimwear and it must be clean everywhere in the salon all the time, no excuses! Let’s face it, if you are going to take your clothes off and lay in a tanning bed, that tanning bed must be spotless, appearing to have never been used. It is perfectly ﬁne to ask your tanning consultant what product they used to clean your tanning bed. Most salons use a product which is a hospital grade disinfectant. If you feel that your tanning bed is not clean and you either don’t want to walk out or have points/tans at a speciﬁc tanning salon, please know that it is okay to politely ask the tanning consultant to clean your tanning bed again. Take the CLEANLINESS CHALLENGE… look under and behind your tanning salon beds and see if it has been cleaned. Chances are that it is not clean and you’ll be running over to Beach House Tanning & Swimwear and start tanning with us! For this CLEANLINESS CHALLENGE… any new customers switching to Beach House Tanning & Swimwear will receive FREE ONE WEEK OF TANNING with their ﬁrst purchase of tanning minutes, tanning lotion or swimwear. Not to be combined with any other offer. See you at Beach House very soon!

Why bother Budgeting for a Wedding Ceremony?
might be difﬁcult to see the value in budgeting equally for your ceremony and your reception, however, think about it this way. Your ceremony is the most important part of your wedding DR.

It sets the stage for the rest of your celebration. It’s the whole reason why you have gathered together. Without the ceremony, you will only have a wonderful party, (or family reunion), you get dressed up for and get to pay for!

An Inspiring Journey Through 5,000 Years of Civilization
Stories of winters gone by the talk of the town Archie and Dale Miller
The type of weather we have been having for the past month or so has certainly been a challenge. It has also been a great trigger of memories. As we chatted with folks about the season and the current weather, a number of things seem to spur looking back.Things like how cold it was, the amount of snow, city locations with snowy winter connections, skating outdoors, ice in the river, times when the Fraser froze, and examples of loss of life directly linked to the cold weather. In terms of the volume of snowfall, we have heard memorable stories from about 10 years ago, a major snow problem from the 1990s, interesting accounts of huge dumps of snow in the 1970s and 1980s, and
even very personal connections to snow in the 1950s in which the birth of a child was complicated by snowrelated travel problems. The topic of sleigh riding in this city following major snowfalls seems to link to hills, obviously, all across the town. Most people now think of the hills in Queen’s Park, particularly overlooking Sixth Avenue and McBride Boulevard.There were other stories of great sledding activity on 10th, 11th and 13th streets and looking back to the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s to the wonderful sloping hillside behind Sapperton’s McBride school. And while thinking of sleigh riding in Sapperton, a number of tales referred to Hospital and Sherbrooke streets, especially the latter, where the dramatic length of the run was a feature. Also included in these sto-
ries were a couple from the earlier decades of the 1900s in which injuries and death as a result of sleighing accidents clouded the otherwise exciting memories. Skating outdoors in this city is somewhat limited. Part of Moody Park has been used by locals as well as the old duck pond in Queen’s Park. The freezing of the waters of the Fraser River was a part of the Royal City story from its earliest years.The year 1929 is regarded as the last time it froze so hard that it stopped shipping and allowed skating, horses, wagons and even autos on its surface. This month, the New Westminster Historical Society will feature a presentation with some winter weather stories.This is on Jan. 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the library on Sixth Avenue.

THE PEOPLE of ancient China held that their magniﬁcent culture was a gift from heaven. Art was primarily a means to explore the connection between humankind and the higher universe. Through the universal language of music and dance, Shen Yun weaves a wondrous tapestry of heavenly realms, ancient legends, and modern heroic tales, taking you on a journey through 5,000 years of divinely inspired Chinese culture. The stunning beauty, purity, and tremendous energy of Shen Yun’s performances leave audiences greatly uplifted and deeply inspired.

Fifth provider found The City of New Westminster has signed a fifth agreement as part of its BridgeNet fibre network. Having already signed agreements with four independent service providers to provide high-speed internet services using the city’s fibre network, council has ap-
proved an agreement with Wi-Band Communications. “This is a different kind of company that focuses on businesses only,” said Coun. Bill Harper. “The existing ISPs are focusing on residential.” Wi-Band Communications will be the fifth com-
pany providing high-speed internet services in New Westminster. “Wi-Band would fill a current market need in New Westminster for cheaper internet access for commercial customers that do not require giga-bit speed,” said a staff report.

Salmonbellies move Cornwall for draft picks One-timeWLA defender of the year sent to Maple Ridge; NewWest stockpiles picks for next month’s draft
Changing things up just for the sake of change isn’t Dan Richardson’s style. But the New Westminster Salmonbellies president and general manager demonstrated once again that when there’s a good reason to shuffle the deck, he will do what it takes to improve his team. With the Western Lacrosse Association’s annual junior draft a
month away, the Bellies GM made a move to add to the club’s stockpile of picks, this time swapping transition player Jeff Cornwall to the defending champion Maple Ridge Burrards for a pair of first round draft selections. Richardson said a big reason for the deal was that Cornwall didn’t seem committed to the team. “(Cornwall) is a talented player and a character guy, but for the last couple of years it has been a challenge,” said Richardson. “His actions both on and off the floor
with his teammates and the support staff indicated to us he didn’t want to be a Salmonbellie. “It wasn’t an easy trade to make, because (Cornwall) is a great player. But the situation wasn’t working, and we got some (draft) picks we can use to address some needs.” Cornwall said the swap came as a surprise, even though his focus athletically right now is with the National Lacrosse League’s Saskatchewan Rush. “I think it’s a good opportu-
nity for me,” said Cornwall, 25. “I didn’t see a trade coming, but looking at Maple Ridge it’s a good situation.They have a strong offence, ridiculously great goaltending and very good defence... I think I can fit in well on defence and help them get back to a Mann Cup.” A year ago he investigated playing in Ontario for the 2016 season, but said he wasn’t unhappy playing in New West. Richardson noted that Cornwall had not requested a trade, but just
didn’t seem be in sync with the club’s coaches. “(Head coach Steve Goodwin) has been around the game a long time, (assistant) Russ Heard is a Hall of Famer and he knows a lot about the game… When you have a player who isn’t buying in and isn’t as committed as his teammates, it wears on the players and the coaching staff,” remarked Richardson. Selected with the third pick overall in the 2013 WLA draft, Continued on page 29
Hyacks set for Top-10 moment Tough draw will give NewWest best test in preparation for playoffs Dan Olson
You won’t hear Doug Woodward suggest that his team is entering a ‘no-win’ situation. His New Westminster Hyacks are an impressive 13-1, with the lone loss coming against a ranked Hawaiian team during an early season basketball game. Facing the No. 3-ranked Brookswood Bobcats today in their opening matchup at the Centennial Top-10 senior girls tournament is something he relishes. No matter the result, New West in fact can’t lose, he said. “It’s like a final exam,”Woodward said of the tourney, “and after this weekend we’ll know where we are.” Unranked and an underdog among the Coquitlam-based 16-team series, the Hyacks will measure themselves against a pool that includes eight of the top-10 Triple-A programs, plus the top2 Double-A squads. In the end, his players will know what the next level will take as they gear up for February’s playoffs. “I just want to see us compete and play some defence against some of the best players,” he noted. “I know we can score, but Brookswood likes to play man-to-man tough, so if we can handle their press and win the turnovers, that will be a good result.” The Hyacks’ first game since the holidays came last week, when they played Double-A No. 8 Little Flower Academy, walking off with a 70-56 victory. Devin Strome set the tone offensively with 19 points and Jaime Lee counted 13, while Lee also produced four steals that led to baskets. Chipping in with 12 points was Milanna Obrovac. New West will play either Double-A No. 2 G.W. Graham or Triple-A No. 7 Argyle on Friday, depending upon the previous day’s results.

Royals stay up-tempo despite loss to Blues Dan Olson
A six-point gap against the nationally No. 8-ranked Capilano Blues provided food for thought for the Douglas College Royals. The PacWest League’s women’s basketball team pushed the league leaders last Friday, falling 60-54 in a battle that was a bit like a see-saw ride. Although they were the pursuers over the final half, the game was extremely close.While a win was within their grasp, the most important take-away was in the details, said Douglas coach Steve Beauchamp.
“The loss to Cap showed we are close, very close, but also showed areas we can improve on,” said Beauchamp. For the Royals, it was just their second loss and first since a season-opening setback to the same Blues. What transpired this time out was encouraging, the veteran coach said. The New West-based squad erased a four-point deficit to enter the half ahead 22-20. Capilano turned the tables in the second half, and exerted a lot of energy to protect that lead. “It was a very hard fought game, close all the way by a two-
to-three point difference,” said Beauchamp. “It wasn’t until about with four minutes left that they hit a couple of big threes.” While Capilano forged a bigger lead, Douglas did reply but couldn’t bridge the gap. Leading the Royals’ offence was Rachel Beauchamp, who counted 17 points and five rebounds. Sarah Jorgenson chipped in 11 points while Simran Bir counted 10 points. Considering it was just the team’s second game after a fiveweek holiday break, the intensity by both clubs was impressive, noted the coach. Douglas launched 2017 by
topping Columbia Bible College 83-30, with Rachel Beauchamp scoring 21 points, Bir knocking down 15 points and seven assists, and Ellen Fallis contributing 11 points and six steals. The team was without the services of ailing fourth-year vets Hannah Klassen and Sara Kurath, and first-year Karanveer Rai. Continuing an up-tempo style that helped build an 8-2 record is what Douglas needs down the stretch, said coach Beauchamp. “I think we’re pretty good at pushing the up-tempo, but I’d like to see better decision-making in that up-tempo approach.”

Stealth on winning roll
Now, that’s the way to start a season. The Vancouver Stealth’s season-opening weekend couldn’t have gone any better, as they rolled up road wins over Calgary and Colorado to start the National Lacrosse League regular season 2-0. On Saturday they defeated the Colorado Mammoth 15-9 in Denver, just 24 hours after edging the Calgary Roughnecks 12-11 at the Saddledome. Led by Rhys Duch, who counted a hat trick in each half,Vancouver spent much of the game Saturday in control – except for a brief run in the third quarter when Colorado blitzed
ahead 8-7 with four quick goals.The Stealth had an answer – reeling off four of their own, including three in a span of 52 seconds, and limited the Mammoth to just one tally in the final frame. Duch finished with nine points in the win, while Corey Small, who like Duch plays summer lacrosse with the Western Lacrosse Association’s Victoria Shamrocks, pocketed two goals and five helpers. New Westminster Salmonbellies’ Logan Schuss netted four goals and contributed two assists, while the Burnaby Lakers’ Justin Salt snapped in a goal and twin assists. The Mammoth got four
goals from the the Lakers’ Eli McLaughlin. Netminder Tyler Richards, a former Bellie who plays for Burnaby, made 43 saves in the win. A day earlier, a strong first half created enough momentum to hold off Calgary’s late rally. Vancouver took a 12-7 with Keegan Bal’s third of the day early in the fourth frame, and then held on as Calgary came within a goal. Bal, who like Schuss plays with the Bellies, also drew a pair of assists. The Stealth now look for a third straight win, going up against Calgary on Saturday, Jan. 14 at the Langley Events Centre.
Bellies look to beef up offence
Continued from page 28 Cornwall established himself quickly as a strong player off the ball. He was named the WLA’s top defender in 2014 and a first team all-star in 2015. But since then, he has been supplanted by veteran Ian Hawksbee and Justin Goodwin, and was limited to four goals and two assists over 10 regular season games in 2016. With the return, New West picks up Maple Ridge’s first pick, fifth overall, and re-acquires its own first round pick, at sixth,
that it had shipped east in a deal that got them the third pick in last year’s draft. Richardson admits he’s ready to max-out his cell phone plan to possibly convert some or all the picks into something more. “It’s a good first round for talent, but it drops off after that,” said Richardson of the prospects available in this year’s draft. “We know we will get some quality players with the fifth and sixth choices, depending upon what other teams do. “Right now we may keep the picks, unless we find a
suitable trading partner and a deal that makes sense for both teams.” He said the team’s main need comes on offence. “I think we’re really happy with our goaltending and are solid on defence,” said Richardson. “What we’re looking to build on is our offence, mostly on the right side.” Among those eligible are Coquitlam’s Tyler Pace, New Westminster’s Adam Dickson and Johnny Pearson, and Delta’s Chase Fraser and Evan Messenger.

Junior Bellies load up at draft The New Westminster junior Salmonbellies exited last week’s midget draft happy with their lot. The third-best team in the standings in 2016, the B.C. Junior A lacrosse team used the first overall pick in the draft to select 16-year-old sniper Dylan McCormick of Ridge Meadows. The Bellies had acquired the first overall
pick in an earlier trade. With the sixth overall choice, New West tagged Gavin Bruce of Port Moody. “(The draft) went exceedingly well,” remarked Bellies general manager Warren Goss. “We went in with a list of our top-16 players and ended up with our top-two.” McCormick is a righthanded offensive player, while Bruce plays offence/defence.
