Julian shoots for NDP leadership By Tereza Verenca
After months of speculation, Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian announced he’ll be running in this fall’s NDP leadership race to replace Tom Mulcair. During a 20-minute speech at The Columbia on Sunday, Julian shared his vision for Canada, one where “everyone matters and no one is left behind.” “The loss of so many good jobs, the fraying of the social safety net, record levels of family debt and homelessness; we can do better and the NDP can bring change,” he told the 200-plus-person crowd. “It’s time to make the priority regular folks rather than the rich and the well-connected.” Julian, 55, said he’d tackle the inequality gap between the “top one per cent” and the majority of Canadians by ending tax breaks for the wealthy and shutting down tax havens and “sweetheart deals.” “No matter how wealthy, no matter how well connected, everyone pays their fair share of taxes,” he said, to a round of applause. The MP also touched on creating a national housing strategy and ending tuition fees in order to strengthen the economy. Julian said the latter is a fundamental issue to the young voters he’s chatted with and is a cause he thinks many will champion. “Younger Canadians have been pushed aside more than other Canadians by what Continued on page 6

District makes headway on sanctuary schools email@example.com
Students in New Westminster with precarious immigration status or no immigration status at all are one step closer to an educa-
tion without fear of deportation. Trustees approved a draft sanctuary schools policy at an education policy and planning committee meeting last week.The New Westminster Sanctuary
Schools policy intends to make the district a safe and welcoming place for all students, no matter their immigration status. The draft policy, which will be officially presented to the board of education later
this month, is the result of nearly a year’s work by staff, trustees and stakeholders on the district’s sanctuary schools task force. “I very much support the policy,” trustee Casey Cook told the Record.

Murderer gets six years in prison for killing city woman By Cayley Dobie
The man who killed a New Westminster grandmother in a random attack in June 2015 has been sentenced to six years in prison. Julien Levasseur was handed his sentence in New Westminster provincial court on Jan. 30.The 24-year-old pled guilty to manslaughter last fall for killing Chandar Dhandwar on June 3, 2015. Dhandwar, 79, was on her way home from a friend’s house near Lord Tweedsmuir Elementary school around 6:30 p.m. when Levasseur confronted her. At the time of the attack, Levasseur was in what both Crown counsel and his defence attorney called a drug-induced psychosis caused by ingesting a mixture of LSD and MDMA. Dhandwar never fought back, and she died quickly, according to the medical examiner’s report. At an earlier hearing,

‘Triple whammy’ hitting seniors in Metro Vancouver By Theresa McManus
A “triple whammy” is contributing to rise in homelessness among seniors in Metro Vancouver. Brian Dodd, interim executive director of the Seniors Services Society, said New Westminster is second only to Vancouver in terms of the number of homeless seniors it serves. “Unfortunately, there’s a bit of a myth that everybody has a nice little nest egg, they all own their own homes and once you are
over 65 you can put your feet up and take it easy,” he said. “Life sometimes interferes with that.We are dealing with a lot of people who have worked hard their entire lives and thought they had that nest egg, but for one reason or another, it slips away. It could be an illness, it could be the loss of a loved one. It could be the high cost of the rental market in Metro Vancouver.” According to Dodd, the fastest growing demographic in the homelessness realm right now is people over 55 years of age.
the Crown recommended Levasseur be sentenced to eight to 10 years in prison while the defence argued five to seven years would be more appropriate. The provincial court judge sentenced Levasseur to six years in prison minus time served, which amounts to about three-and-a-half years remaining on his sentence. He is also prohibited from owning any firearms for 10 years. In a statement, Dhandwar’s family thanked the community for its support. “The senseless actions of one individual that led to the horrific event has left our family with unsurmountable grief. She was taken so suddenly and we dearly miss our mother, wife, a grandmother and a great-grandmother. She is missed by her community and friends. “We acknowledge that this tragedy has not only directly affected our family, but affected so many other people,” read the statement.
“We are hit with a triple whammy here because in Metro Vancouver we have the highest cost of living in the country, we have got the highest cost of rental accommodations and we’ve got zero vacancy rates.That, tied to limited income or a fixed pension, can often mean problems and sometimes folks don’t want to admit there’s a problem until it’s too late,” Dodd said. “That’s where we come in.” The average stay in a shelter for a senior over 65 was nine days in 2005, but that had grown to 21.5 days
in 2014, Dodd said. “That’s 21.5 days too long for a seniors to be in a shelter environment,” he said. “So what do we do about it? We operate a temporary housing program which is based out of our operation here in New Westminster, where we have 20 units supplied to us through B.C. Housing, where we can shelter seniors in a bachelor suite, fully furnished, for three to six months while we stabilize them, while we get to Continued on page 6
The submarine will be setting sail from Quayside Park. City council has endorsed a design for the redevelopment of the small waterfront park at 1260 Quayside Dr. After the engineering department replaces a storm sewer outfall below the park in February and March, work on the new park will get underway. Erika Mashig, the city’s parks and open space planner, said the city gathered input for the project through three open houses and two meetings with stakeholders. “We heard loud and clear that Quayside Park is a community space and should be designed for everybody,” she said. “It’s not just a playground.” The proposed design aims to provide improved
pedestrian and cyclist circulation through the park, to maintain as many trees as possible as they provide shade and habitat and to include social seating, including communal seating for larger community events. The plan includes removal of remnants from Expo 86, including the submarine and four lighthouses, as these don’t meet current safety standards and require higher levels of maintenance over time. Mashig said community members expressed a real desire to keep a themed play area for the kids, but were divided on the submarine. Some people love the submarine and are nostalgic about Expo 86, she said, but others support its removal so the city can improve the park’s sightlines and create a play experience that’s more diverse and more accessible to a greater age range of children.

A ‘positive vision’ for the NDP leadership Continued from page 1 we’re seeing, an increased concentration of wealth, so what we need to do is talk very clearly about a new direction for this country. And I think that’s where you start to get younger people in politics and interested in change,” he told media after the announcement. Julian made it clear he was opposed to pipelines and that investing in clean energy would lead to thousands of jobs. “We cannot play Russian
roulette with our planet. … Climate change is a profound and disturbing reality that will be accelerated substantially if these projects are built,” he said of the Trans Mountain, Keystone XL and Energy East pipelines. Julian called for “real, meaningful and full reconciliation” with First Nations, Métis and Inuit people. The longtime MP was first elected in 2004 and served as critic for finance, international trade, trans-
portation, persons with disabilities and energy, to name a few. He stepped down as House leader last fall to consider the leadership bid. Those in attendance on Sunday included Mayor Jonathan Cote, who said he was happy to support Julian. “He’s been an incredible member of Parliament for over a decade; not only represented New Westminster well, but really represented Canada well. I think he’s putting forward a positive
vision for the NDP leadership, and it’s what the party needs at this point in time,” he said.
We cannot play Russian roulette with our planet Cote added he was inspired by Julian’s plans to tackle homelessness. “Homelessness in Metro Vancouver and all of the
country has reached, as far as I’m concerned, an unacceptable level, and it’s an issue that hasn’t galvanized the support of any major leader,” he said. Penny Oyama, a longtime Julian fan, came out to show her support.The local resident attended the NDP convention last spring, an event she called “a huge eye-opener.” “Ground-breaking discussions took place and Peter was right in the middle of it all, so we can expect
some earth-shattering stuff to happen,” she said. Arguably Julian’s biggest fans were also in the crowd – his parents,Terry and Ruth. Both were all smiles as they watched their son deliver his speech. “We’re very proud of him and we’re excited,” said Terry. “He’s worked for this, I think since he was 12, when he first started talking about the New Democrats,” Ruth chimed in.
Coldest Night of the Year helps seniors with housing Continued from page 3 the root cause of why they are homeless and then work from there to connect the dots so that their next move is into a permanent facility.” The society gets funding from B.C. Housing, the City of Vancouver and the City of New Westminster for its core program, but the Coldest Night of theYear fundraiser supplements ser-
vices for seniors who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. “What this particular event, Coldest Night of the Year, allows us to do is to buy the little things that make a house a home,” Dodd said. “We are putting 30 or 40 people a year through our temporary housing program. A lot of people we can take straight
from a homeless situation straight into permanent housing, but generally they are coming with nothing.” The third annual Coldest Night of theYear fundraiser in New Westminster aims to raise $45,000, which will be used to buy bedding, linens, kitchen appliances and utensils, cleaning supplies and other items to help outfit apartments for needy
seniors. “These are all things that just don’t magically appear,” Dodd said. “We have to find the dollars to go out and do that. Unfortunately, that’s not the kind of thing that’s easy to fundraise for. This particular event was a godsend to us a few years ago when it came about.” New Westminster is one of more than 100 com-
munities taking part in the Coldest Night of theYear with its Saturday, Feb. 25 walk at Westminster Quay and River Market. For more information, visit www.cnoy. org (click on New Westminster under Location), call the Seniors Services Society at 604-520-6621 or drop by 750 Carnarvon St. “We are all walking for the hungry, the hurting or
the homeless,” Dodd said. “What I am asking the good folks of New Westminster to do is come out and support us on Feb. 25 by walking for seniors and those who often can’t help themselves, those who are slipping through the cracks, and helping us connect the dots so they can get from homelessness to home.”

City Students shape vision for a kid-friendly city Theresa McManus
École Glenbrook Middle School students have some ideas how the city can be made friendlier for kids For the past few months, more than 50 Grade 6 and 7 students have been considering the play-friendliness and child-friendliness of their local neighbourhoods.The project is part of DesireeWilson’s dissertation research through Interdisciplinary Studies at UBC. “Students participated in classroom sessions, during school time, related to children’s rights, outdoor play, photography, mapping and child-friendly communities,”Wilson said. “The students then went on neighbourhood walks and shared their experiences, ideas and stories about playing in their local neighbourhoods through photographs and narratives.” The project, designed in collaboration with repre-
sentatives from the school district and the city’s planning department, will complement the NewWestminster Child andYouth Friendly Community Strategy.The strategy, adopted last fall, aims to help the city create neighbourhoods that meet the needs of children, youth and families. Twelve Glenbrook students also participated in a project leadership group that helped plan the classroom sessions, a photo exhibit and a presentation to city council. Some of those students appeared before city council on Feb. 6 to provide an overview of the work they’ve done and to make some recommendations for council’s consideration. The students believe city facilities will be better used by kids if they’re included in the consultation process. They urged the city to get kids’ input when planning facilities like a new skate park and Canada Games
914 Ladner St
Kids’ ideas Here are some of the ideas students presented to council about making the city more child-friendly: ! Install grips on playground equipment, as it can be slippery when wet. ! Provide wider sidewalks so kids aren’t walking as close to the road. ! Create a bike park in Queen’s Park. ! Provide softer bedding on playgrounds, so it doesn’t hurt as much when kids fall down. ! Install more street lights.
Pool. Council unanimously referred the group’s recommendations to staff for a report. Mayor Jonathan Cote commended the students for their work. “For us to really create a child-friendly city, we actually have to see the city through the eyes of the youth,” Cote said.

Opinion OUR VIEW
A tired election tactic that still works Among the flurry of press releases sent our way last week was one from the B.C. government pledging to release $25 million in onetime funding to help clear a backlog of surgeries. The government also threw in the promise of four new MRI scanners to be installed in 2018. We wouldn’t be surprised if everybody in B.C. gets a bonus set of crutches before the election in May. ’Tis the season for pro-
vincial giveaways. And who can blame the Liberals? Throwing money and promises of wonderful things to come is just part of greasing the cogs of democracy. That and throwing mud at your opponents is, sadly, what voters have come to accept as the norm. But back to health care. The government’s announcement is the second injection of funds in the past two years to try and
cut down on waiting lists. The government argues there is an “unprecedented” demand for surgeries in B.C., and it’s got a point. The problem is that this challenge is not new, and the government had previously pledged to fix it. And, for some strange reason, other provinces seem to be able to manage their healthcare systems better. In a report released last year by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alterna-
The pattern has been set, and it seems to work tives, B.C. ranked near the bottom or last among all provinces in completing common surgeries in a reasonable time. And, if you think that info is biased because it comes from a left-wing group,
think again. A survey of Canadian doctors conducted by the right-wing Fraser Institute in 2016 found MRI wait times in B.C. are almost double the national average of 11 weeks. NDP health critic Judy Darcy has rightly criticized the government’s wait-until-it’s-an-emergency manner of funding health care in B.C. Darcy says, “Instead of one-time funding, they need to invest in health care
over the long haul to seriously tackle this problem.” She’s right, of course. But now the pattern has been set, and it seems to work for the Liberals. Taxpayers complain about waiting lists, and when it reaches critical mass, the government acts as if it’s doing everybody a favour by putting taxpayer dollars into the system. More grease, more votes.
MY VIEW KEITH BALDREY
Expect goodies in B.C. budget Next week Finance Minister Mike de Jong will table the new provincial budget, and with it there will undoubtedly be some spending and revenue “adjustments” to woo voters just in time for the provincial election, which is less than three months away. The minister is ending the current fiscal year with a whopping budget surplus of more than $2 billion.While next year’s budget is not expected to produce as robust a set of revenues (economic growth is expected to slow a bit, and the riches reaped from a red hot housing market will subside as well) things are still looking a tad rosy. So what changes might we expect compared with what is the government’s current three-year fiscal plan (every budget contains a three-year projection, which provides a fairly good glimpse of what to expect from year to year)? One area to keep an eye on is the budget for the Children and Family Development Ministry.The fiscal plan suggests it will get an additional $21 million added to this year’s budget of $5.609 billion, which is a tiny increase of less than one per cent. But given the scathing and tragic report from the Children’s Representative on the life and death of Alex Gervais, who committed suicide after years in government care, one has to wonder whether there is renewed pressure to fund more resources to enable that ministry not
to repeat its failures when it came to that young man. Among other outrages, the ministry was paying someone $8,000 a month to look after Gervais, with no evidence this person ever did anything remotely good for him (quite the opposite in fact). On top of that, Global TV discovered a man with a long criminal record and no training was hired to look after two foster homes. The cabinet minister responsible, Stephanie Cadieux, says she will press for more funding to decrease the contracting out of children in care services, and we’ll see how de Jong responds to her calls. Health care will, as usual, get a huge funding lift in the neighbourhood of a half billion dollars. But I’m interested if there is new money for seniors care, particularly home care. Seniors vote in greater numbers than most, and more money may be coming their way. Finally, the public education system is in line for a major funding lift after a high court decision will require the hiring of thousands more teaching positions. Given the government is in talks on this matter with the teachers’ union, de Jong may “hide” the money in the budget through the use of the contingency fund and the forecast allowance. The bottom line, though, is the budget will deliver a surplus and likely some goodies in key areas. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Kids these days … New Westminster police were giving tickets to children in September – but not for any wrongdoing. As part of their Safety Smart card program, officers were rewarding kids for things like riding a bike with a helmet or using the crosswalk to cross the street.The card entitled them to French fries or an ice-cream cone at McDonald’s. “We are ticketing children for good behavior, safe behavior,” said Sgt. Gary Weishaar.

Let’s have a discussion about trans rights
Dear Editor: Re: New Westminster pastor behind anti-transgender rights posters. The New West Pride Society would like to address Pastor Paul Dirks (New Westminster Community Church) and his campaign against adding gender identity and gender expression clauses to the Canadian Human Rights Act through Bill C-16. At best, his campaign is insensitive to the experience of trans persons. At worst, the campaign, At best, his and its associcampaign is ated website, convey thinly insensitive veiled fear mongering and transphobia. While claiming to “value and respect all people,” Pastor Dirks does not believe it to be necessary to consider how denying Bill C-16 will affect the daily lives of trans persons and further marginalize their experience. For what reason would a man such as Pastor Dirks, purport to speak for women in arguing against Bill C-16? Women are quite capable of speaking for them-
selves, just as trans persons themselves carry the only moral weight in shaping policy which directly affects them. Bill C-16 is important in that it adds gender expression and identity to the prohibited grounds for discrimination, would shore human rights for trans persons, and allow for crimes against trans people to be tracked. The language of the bill does not attack the definition of woman nor women’s rights. Advancing the rights and protections of trans persons does not diminish the rights and protections of any other Canadian citizen. The proposed bill is neither anti-women, nor anti-family as his campaign website would suggest. Further, passing Bill C-16 would bring federal legislation in line with Bill 27, B.C.’s Human Rights Code Amendment Act (enacted July 25, 2016), which included “gender identity or expression” among the protected grounds covered by our provincial Human Rights Code. The New West Pride Society believes we can assist Pastor Dirks with information and education about what it means to be trans, and what it means to deny a community – our very neighbours – the same rights most of us take for granted. We welcome the opportunity to have a conversation about his campaign. Kurt Knoblick, New Westminster Pride Society

Donkey Kong, anyone?
City revisits its restrictions on arcades after a request from a retro-style amusement operation Could Pac Man, Donkey Kong and Space Invaders be returning to the Royal City? Maybe. Back in 1999, the City of New Westminster restricted amusement arcades in the city because of complaints about noise, hours of operation and disrespectful or unlawful behaviour. Nearly two decades later, the city is considering changes that would allow amusement arcades to operate in some
commercial areas of the city. A retro-style amusement arcade is looking to open shop in downtown New Westminster, which has prompted the city to consider allowing amusement arcades as a permitted use in the C-4 and C-8 zones. “Amusement arcades have regained popularity given the resurgence of the classic arcade or ‘barcade’ games geared towards adults and arcade games
from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s,” said a staff report. The issues that led to the restrictions on arcades back in 1999 aren’t as applicable today, said a staff report. Staff is suggesting some restrictions, including not allowing liquor sales and games that depict violence. A public hearing on the proposed change is being held on Monday, Feb. 20. – Theresa McManus
Sanctuary schools in the works Continued from page 1 with our policy and make it too broad that it would impact other programs (like) international students, and that was the balance we had to find, and I think that with some words missing, we have found that,” he said. “But the important thing of it all is that I think we make sure we live up to our commitment to children whose families are in vulnerable and precarious situ-
ations.” Through the draft policy, all school-aged children, “including those with precarious immigration status or no immigration status,” are welcome to seek an education within the New Westminster school district.The education policy and planning committee has recommended the board of education approve the draft policy at its upcoming meeting on Feb. 28.
Langara Mechanical Ltd.
The B.C.Teachers’ Federation drafted a sanctuary school policy proposal in 2014, however, school districts across the province have yet to adopt it. (In Canada,Toronto was the first school district to adopt its own policy regarding access for non-status students.)

Hyack wants to share First Nations stories Theresa McManus
The Hyack Festival Association thinks it’s only fitting to tell the story of New Westminster and First Nations in 2017. Hyack adopts a different theme each year and has selected First Nations. First Cities:Telling Our Story,Together as its theme for 2017. Along with incorporating the theme into its various events, it will also be the basis for this year’s Hyack New Westminster float. “During Canada’s 150th year, it’s very fitting the Royal City recall its special place in the history of this country in a way that integrates and celebrates the culture and stories of the First Peoples of the land,” said Hyack president David Brett. “The word Hyack, a Chinook term meaning ‘go fast,’ is deeply woven into the fabric of NewWestminster’s culture and history, and reveals the profound connection betweenWestern Canada’s first city and the First Nations people.” Chief Rhonda Larrabee of Qayqayt First Nation supports the theme and has agreed to be the honorary parade marshal for the 2017 Hyack International Parade on May 27. Hyack has also recruited First Nations artist, actor and director David H. Lyle, who grew up in NewWest, to take on the role of its artistic director for 2017. “David is committed to this work,” Brett said. “We have someone who is highly capable of doing this. It could be a really moving and profound initiative for the City of NewWestmin-

ster.” While researching the First Nations history in NewWest on behalf of Hyack, Brett found a photograph of Chief Dan George with Mayor James Gifford on the steps of city hall for Canada’s centennial and Indian Days. Brett also found a newspaper photograph of two-year-old David Lyle at the opening ceremony of Indian Days in 1967, a photo that led him to the man who will serve as Hyack’s art director for the year. “It attracted First Nations from all over British Columbia and up to 15,000 spectators,” Brett said of the Indian Days events held in the city in the late 1960s. “This tradition of celebrating First Nations culture in NewWestminster goes back a long way.” Hyack plans to partner with Qayqayt Elementary School and the Artists Rending Tales Collective Inc. on events, and to reach out to local First Nations groups, and arts, culture and historical groups in the
city to get their input. In addition to running the Hyack International Parade during the 10-day Hyack Festival, the association also hosts the city’s annual Canada Day fireworks display, runs a youth ambassador program that leads to the crowning of Miss NewWestminster and takes the NewWestminster Hyack float to parades in more than a dozen cities in the Pacific Northwest. It’s also working on new events, such as the Hyack Grand Prix bike race. Brett said the association is teaming up with Qayqayt Elementary School for the Qayqayt HOWL Salmon Barbecue, which will be held during the Hyack Festival and will feature historical content, food, displays, entertainment, children’s activities, contemporary First Nations music and more. “NewWestminster is in some way a metaphor for all of Canada in the way we came together,” Brett said. “Our intention this year is to tell that story.”

Snow can’t stop the city’s farmers’ market Theresa McManus
The show must go on. That may be the motto for performers around the world, but it’s apropos for the Royal City Farmers Market.While the Feb. 4 winter market fell on the day after a heavy snowfall, the group ploughed ahead and held its winter market. Nadine Nakagawa, who took this shot, tells us that volunteers arrived at 6 a.m. to ensure the area was safe for vendors and customers, after the city plowed the night before. Great community spirit! KUDOS TO THE CITY City of New Westminster employees are getting kudos on a number of fronts. Coun. Chuck Puchmayr said the city had a great response from city crews in response to the recent snowfall, but he wanted to identify one of the
It could have been driven from the top down “heroes” who helped out. As he was leaving a restaurant on 12th Street on Feb. 3, he spotted the city’s senior planning analyst. “When I left, I heard this scraping of a shovel. I looked down 12th Street and there was one of our staff, Dave Guiney, and he was looking for the storm sewer and he was trying to clear the snow off it so water could run down 12th Street properly,” he said. “A shoutout to our planner Dave Guiney for going above the call of duty.” Queen’s Park resident Larry Church expressed appreciation to Jim Lowrie, the city’s director of engineering, for tracking him down and following up on concerns he’d voiced about curb cuts. “I couldn’t believe my eyes,” he told council on Feb. 6. “Thanks Jim.” Brow of the Hill resident Brad Cavanagh also put in an appearance at the Feb. 6 council meeting to thank the city for its efforts updating the city’s official community plan. He noted staff

has given up many evenings and weekends to attend council meetings and community events since the process got underway in January 2014. “We’d like to say thank you for putting the C in the OCP,” he said of the official community plan. “It truly is a community plan.” While staff deserve accolades, Cavanagh also thanked mayor and council for making the OCP update a bottom-up process that’s involved residents. “It could have been driven from the top down,” he said. “City staff could have just presented reports and come up with ideas and not engaged with the community.” NEW WEST DÉCOR BUSINESS GETS A NEW OWNER First a shopper, then an owner. Last September, Janice and Jeff Wright took over as the new owners of Champagne Taste, a home décor store on Royal Avenue featuring a blend of new and consignment home décor items and furniture. Janice had previously worked with Champagne
Taste’s co-owner Peggy Bellerive and shopped at the store. “I very much want to continue what’s been started here,” said Janice, who was grateful that Bellerive stayed on to help introduce her to the business and customers. “I am learning as I go.There is definitely an art to picking certain things, receiving certain things and not accepting certain things, and catering to both the consigner and the shopper at the same time. I definitely want to maintain the tradition and the style, but I do have plans to grow the business.” So, what does the future hold for Champagne Taste? “I’ve got some plans to resurrect the web page and bring it a little newer, a little edgier, to grow some clientele outside the arms of New Westminster and eventually maybe even make online shopping available,” Janice said. In recent months, Champagne Taste has helped raise funds for the Honour House Society and the Caring Neighbours at Christmas program offered by Family Services of Greater Vancouver.

Community OUR PAST
Salute to a ﬁre company Archie and Dale Miller
In New Westminster 150 years ago, the fire department prepared its report on its current standing and presented it to city council as was its civic duty under the fire bylaw.These reports are often of great interest to us today, and this particular one has some wonderful items included. First of all, the report gives us an excellent description of the composition of the department, sometimes referred to as the Company. “The property of the Company consists of one first-class fire engine, one hose-carriage, 500 feet of hose, one engine house, one splendid bell, buckets, ladders, furniture, and etc., all in good order.The department consists of one chief, one assistant engineer,
and one Company consisting of 40 active and 21 honorary members.” The next part of this report contains specific recommendations, one which had been noted previously, to add water tanks to the present system. Large water tanks were integral parts of the early fire suppression system. This report to council continued with a listing of the fire department’s regular and honorary members. Found in these lists are many well-known names. Under the heading of “Roll of the Hyack Company No. 1” under “members,” we see such recognizable last names as Armstrong, Brew, Clarkson, Clute, Hick, Johnston, Maynard, Murray and Michaud. In terms of budget, it is always of interest to see what was spent on early ac-
tivities, in this instance, the fire house operation, and what was spent to make the fire department run.The basic expense categories included engineer’s work, carpenter’s work, “oil and ironmongery,” blacksmith’s work, steward’s salary, cord wood and oil for hose. The fire department, Hyack Company No. 1, was well known for its skills and also for its band, and under the heading “additions to the property of the company since last report,” the accounting and report end with a wonderful band reference. Added was one baritone horn, one tenor horn, one alto horn, one mouthpiece, one bass drum, eight music books, eight uniform shirts, belts and caps. And, not to be forgotten, one new lamp for the fire engine. Hyack Company No. 1 was ready.

New West grads get set for Boutique Day Theresa McManus
You Wear it Well – Just for Grads is hard at work on plans to make grad memorable for members of the Class of 2017 – and could use a little help. For the past few years, the non-profit has been collecting formal wear and accessories and outfitting students who may otherwise be unable to attend their graduation celebrations because of finances. At the March 5 Boutique Day, grads will shop for an outfit, get their hair and makeup done, have their photos taken, enjoy some good eats, get pampered and head home with a swag bag of toiletries and personal items. Darcey Sudeyko, one of the founders ofYou Wear It Well, said the group is in need of some services and donations to make the event a success, including: makeup artists (who would be
available from about 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and have their own supplies); toiletry and personal items for the swag bags that each student receives; a corporate sponsor for food items for the buffet; and seamstresses (who would also be needed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and have their own sewing machine) to do simple alterations such as straps and hems.
There was not a lot of support and it was really not working In addition to outfitting New Westminster students for grad,You Wear It Well has taken over the work previously done by the Princess Project in Surrey, where there are a lot of kids and a huge need for help with
grad.That program closed down last year, meaning Surrey students may have had to miss out on grad if they couldn’t afford costly attire. But taking on the Surrey program also givesYou Wear it Well organizers a reason to carry on, as they were considering folding the program in New Westminster. “Last year we only had three kids show up.There was not a lot of support and it was really not working.We were looking to get someone to take over and that wasn’t really working well either,” Sudeyko said. “We have got 65 kids registered for this coming Boutique Day. Most are from Surrey.There’s a few from New Westminster.” Anyone wishing to help can contact Kathy at 778231-7184 or contact the group through theYou Wear it Well page on Facebook.

People WHERE ARE THEY NOW? Culinary dreams: Hunter Blackburn prepares pizza for staff at Restaurant As in Amsterdam. The New West native is learning new culinary skills at the restaurant and is planning to open his own restaurant in Vancouver in the future. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED
Young chef follows food dream to Europe Theresa McManus
Feeding pigs, plucking chickens and cooking outdoors are all in a day’s work for New West chef Hunter Blackburn. When the Record last spoke with the New West native, the then-17-yearold was attending the ACEIt (accelerated credit entry to industry training) program in high school, where he was training in the culinary arts. Having worked in kitchens since the age of 12, including the Boathouse and Wild Rice restaurants in New West, Blackburn’s goal was to graduate from the cooking program and look for a job in an upscale Vancouver restaurant or move to Europe. Four-and-a-half years later, Blackburn recently returned home for a visit from Amsterdam, where he’s working as a chef at Restaurant As. “It is a fine-dining restaurant.We do four- to fivecourse dinners,” he said. “It’s a very seasonal restaurant. Every two weeks we change the menu.” The restaurant’s everchanging menu features whatever plants, animals, fish or crustaceans are in season.That includes pigs that are raised in the restaurant’s backyard and vegetables delivered weekly from a farmer from Italy. “They show up and drop off a boatload of random things that we don’t really know what are sometimes,” he said. The restaurant also has hunters who go out hunt-
ing and bring back whatever they’ve managed to catch, including ducks, wild pigeons and hares. “I just learned how to skin my first animal.They bring them to you just dead,” Blackburn said. “We process them from start to finish, take them apart, skin them, take all the guts out.” The restaurant has provided Blackburn with experiences he’d never get at a restaurant in Vancouver. “There’s a lot of things I haven’t ever seen in Canada that I am getting to use here in Europe, which is pretty nice. For me, it’s opening up my mind to ingredients I have never known existed and learning how to use them,” he said. “Maybe one day when I come back to Canada and open up my own restaurant, I can try to start doing some of those things here.” The restaurant is located in a heritage building, and the owner couldn’t build a kitchen inside the chapel, so he built an outdoor kitchen. Chefs begin their day by starting a wood fire to heat the oven. “I am turning something that was just in the ground a day ago, and now it’s on a plate in a fine dining restaurant. It’s a little bit different,” he said. “It’s not just cooking things with electricity; it’s coming down to an old way that we used to do things and show people how much that benefits in the way things taste.” Blackburn, 22, is pondering his future plans, which could include trying to land a job at a Michelin star restaurant in Amsterdam so
he can learn different cooking techniques or moving to Portugal, where he’s been offered a cooking job. It’s a long way from the Sigma program at New Westminster Secondary School, a self-paced program that Blackburn credits with helping him become a chef. “Sometimes I worked 14 to 16 hours days most of the time, so I didn’t always have time to go to school. It was good to have self-paced (schooling) so I could just do my math homework at 3 in the morning when I got off,” said Blackburn, who worked full-time while attending high school and the culinary program at Vancouver Community College. “For me, it made a huge impact to keep going and keep trying for this cooking thing. It definitely gave me a lot of encouragement to keep going.” Blackburn anticipates he’ll return home in about a year, at which time he may return to school to upgrade his certification in the culinary arts, work as a chef for hire or offer pop-up restaurants. “I have worked at this restaurant for nine months and I feel I have learned more than I have learned at any restaurant in the 10 years I have been doing this. I want to keep doing this as much as I can,” he said. “I’d like to own a restaurant one day with my own community garden, where I can grow my own vegetables and I can go out hunting every six months or something and get enough stuff to have a menu for the next months.”

DIANNE BOURGEOIS WHAT DID YOU DO BEFORE YOU RETIRED? Where would you like to start? ANYWHERE. I was 17, I joined the navy. Then I went to Whitehorse to work when I got out. Then I worked at RCH (Royal Columbian Hospital) for 30-someodd years. WHAT DID YOU DO THERE? It was a collection of things because years ago it was completely different. So I did a lot of things; I was on the floor, I was in emerg (emergency). WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO VOLUNTEER AT HONOUR HOUSE? To tell you the truth, I couldn’t see me sitting home when I retired. And also, too, I come from a military family. Both my parents were in the navy and my grandmother was
in world war one and a great grandmother that was in world war two. So I couldn’t see me volunteering some place I couldn’t be involved in some sort of military thing. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN VOLUNTEERING AT HONOUR HOUSE? It’ll be four years in February. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE PART ABOUT VOLUNTEERING? You get an eclectic type of people with different problems. … We do not know what the guests are there for. We know they are there for a reason, but because of confidentiality, (Craig Longstaff) doesn’t tell us, but the guests sometimes just need to talk, and we sit there and listen. We can’t give advice or anything, just support, and it’s basically what I’ve done all my life.

Community City strikes a deal with lacrosse hall of fame Theresa McManus
The Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame is chipping away at plans to put more of its memorabilia on display. The national facility relocated from Centennial Community Centre to its new home in Anvil Centre in 2014. As part of that move, the hall of fame agreed to provide the city with $40,000 plus five annual installments of $30,000 for a total of $190,000 for building the space in the new civic centre. “It’s a magnificent building.We have a fabulous museum there and it’s a great venue,” said Tony Glavin, chair of the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame’s board of governors. “We did it in partnership with the city.”
Last fall, the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame approached the city about renegotiating “a redirection” of funding, which would allow the remaining funds to be redirected toward capital projects in the hall of fame instead of the city. In January, Glavin presented the city with a cheque for $30,000, bringing the total contribution up to $130,000. By redirecting the remaining $60,000 to capital improvements, Glavin said the hall of fame will be able to make some much-desired improvements. “We did a survey of people who have come into our facility and also gone onto our website and we got a tremendous response.The two main responses were: what a beautiful facility and where is all the stuff?” he
said. “That was a real gripe from the lacrosse community – where has all the stuff gone?” Glavin said the facility desperatly needed some new cabinetry to showcase some of the hall of fame’s collection and, with the city’s assistance, was able to get that done prior to the Canadian Hall of Fame’s annual banquet in November. “People were very impressed and very happy to see we have more displays,” he said. “We have two new cabinets and we are planning two more cabinets.” Along with putting more items on display, Glavin said the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame recently relaunched its website and is continuing to work on integrating the hall of fame’s website and facility.

’Bellies hook Crowley for 2017 WLA season NewWest native to relocate home for summer and help senior A club make a run for a 25th Mann Cup title
Family, and winning a Mann Cup, were the main drawing cards for Kevin Crowley when his hometown New Westminster Salmonbellies came calling. After three summers based in Philadelphia, the siren call of home has brought Crowley back for the 2017 Western Lacrosse
Association season. “I want to win a Mann Cup in a ‘Bellies jersey,” Crowley told the Record. “We’ve got a great group of players, many of whom grew up in New West. It’s a special thing to get to wear the Salmonbellie crest, and nobody knows it better than someone who was born there.” The six-foot-four righthander is the biggest catch so far in a busy offseason for the ’Bellies and gen-
eral manager/president Dan Richardson. Earlier acquisitions of defensive linchpin Brett Mydske and forward Joel McCready added talent and depth to both sides of the floor. Getting Crowley back in fish colours demonstrates to observers in the boxla world that New West is seriously pushing the envelope. While Crowley reached out to the team a few months ago, the
details were ironed out over the past few weeks, Richardson said. “I knew (Crowley and Mydske) were good buddies, but what got us moving was Kevin had let it be known through different sources that he was interested in coming back,” said the GM. “He was really good to deal with and we are excited to have him back in a ’Bellies uniform.” The first overall draft pick in
the 2010 WLA draft by Burnaby, Crowley didn’t launch his senior A career until 2011, after New West made a late-season deal to acquire his rights. Over three seasons and 31 games, he tallied 56 goals and 63 assists. Prior to that, he was a dominating force at the junior A level in New West, racking up 112 goals and 154 assists over 103 games Continued on page 31
Hyacks Dancey prepares to rush for McMaster Hyacks’ slotback sets zero in path for university on BCs football, education
One step closer for the senior boys. Proceed with caution for the girls. The Lower Mainland senior basketball tournament began in earnest this week, with major obstacles aplenty for the New Westminster senior boys and girls Hyacks. The senior boys cleared a crucial hurdle on Tuesday, defeating Eric Hamber 90-55 in a must-win contest. Getting 15 points each from Luca Cuk and Francis Federipe, New West came away with a convincing win, anchored by a balanced team performance. “It was a good opening win – we played real well,” remarked New West coach Arno Richter. It put them in against No. 6 ranked Killarney on Wednesday, played after the Record’s deadline. The New West senior girls, meanwhile, were edged 5247 Tuesday by Argyle. Sarah Forgie tallied 23 points and Devin Strome hit for 16. It catapulted the Hyacks into a must-win game Wednesday against Moscrop.
With a long, fluid stride, New Westminster’s Trew Dancey is capable of covering a lot of turf between the lines. The 18-year-old put his signature on a different line last week, committing to McMaster University for both his football and academic post-secondary life. The New West Hyacks linebacker-running back said one of the deciding factors was that McMaster’s coaches were open to letting him carry the ball, despite others believing his future was just on defence. “That’s what got me, they were open-ended on where I could play,” Dancey told the Record on his decision. “One coach viewed me as a linebacker, on defence. (McMaster’s) coach asked me where I saw myself playing, and they were willing to let me try out at slotback.” At six foot two and 185 pounds, Dancey feels his contributions on offence can make the adjustment in the Ontario University Athletics Conference. But it wasn’t all about football. The Hamilton, Ont.-based university impressed the New West native in a lot of areas.

with a team that has been in the playoffs the past six years. “They have a real young roster but with a good group of returning players, so I felt really comfortable there,” Dancey said of his Feb. 3 visit. “I got really great vibes from the coaches and players.When I
“I would say it checked off all the boxes of what I was looking for in a university — the football, academics, everything.” He was impressed with the school’s kinesiology department, the field he plans to study in, as well as the opportunities on the gridiron

Continued from page 30 over five seasons. Crowley was also instrumental in Team Canada’s world field lacrosse championship gold medal win in 2014, scoring five goals in the team’s 8-5 final win over
The Douglas College Royals continued their on-court success in PacWest women’s basketball action, beating two Island rivals to improve to 13-3 on the season. The Royals topped third-place Vancouver Island 64-47 on Saturday, powered by New West native Jettie McLaughlin’s 14-point performance off the bench. Douglas erased a 19-18 deficit with a strong second quarter, limiting the Islanders to just seven points. In the third quarter, the defence was nearly as tight, holding Vancouver Island to eight points. McLaughlin, a third-year post, led the squad in scoring while also contributing six rebounds. Cashing in for 12 points was Sarah Jorgenson. A day earlier, the Royals again turned a one-point deficit – this time at the half – into a solid 73-60 win over Camosun. Rachel Beauchamp tallied 18 points and 10 rebounds, while registering four blocks. Douglas wraps up the regular season this weekend, hosting Langara, 5 p.m. Saturday at the New West campus.
