A little bare in the Brow? Residents lobby for more trees and greenspaces in their neighbourhood hood by planting more trees and creating more parks.While the neighbourhood continues to densify and accommodate more residents, the group is concerned that little greenspace has been created in Brow of the Hill for decades. “Right now in Brow of the Hill, we have a situation where, for 20 years now there’s been a city policy calling for added green space, city policies for additional trees, city poli-

The provincial government is driving forward with plans to replace the Pattullo Bridge. The aging bridge was the lone infrastructure project in B.C. specifically mentioned in the NDP’s throne speech on Tuesday. “It said explicitly we will be moving quickly to replace the Pattullo Bridge,” said New Westminster MLA Judy Darcy. “It was in the throne speech – the only infrastructure project that was specifically named. It means there is an announcement coming soon about the Pattullo Bridge.” Darcy said she continually hears from people about how dangerous the bridge is and how badly it needs to be replaced. “Our understanding is an announcement is expected very soon with that project,” said Mayor Jonathan Cote. “The City of New Westminster has been working very collaboratively with the City of Surrey and TransLink regarding the detailed concept and design plans for the bridge.TransLink would like to move forward with the procurement process for the bridge starting this year, so it’s critically important to get the funding for that project resolved as soon as possible.” If the provincial government is willing to get on board and provide funding for the Pattullo Bridge replacement project, Cote said construction could start as soon as 2019. “Until we get the funding issues resolved and a commitment from the provincial government, that project is not able to move forward,” he said. “We are really looking forward to that announcement and very optimistic that finally we are going to see the

The New Westminster school district will be buying four new portables to help with a growing

student population. The portables will likely be placed at École Glenbrook Middle School and Queen Elizabeth and Lord Kelvin elementary schools, according to a report by secretary-

treasurer Kevin Lorenz. This year, 151 additional students entered the school district, increasing the Kindergarten to Grade 12 regular student population to 5,919.The number of stu-

dents in the district is expected to continue to rise in the coming years, according to the district. Two of the new portables will go to Glenbrook, while the other two will go to Lord Kelvin and

Queen Elizabeth, both of which already have portables. The addition of the four new portables will help mitigate the Continued on page 10

The amending bylaw would also update references within the Zoning Bylaw from the Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR) to the updated Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR); and would update references within the Zoning Bylaw from ‘marihuana’ to ‘cannabis’ to match wording in proposed Federal and Provincial regulations and documents. HOW DO I GET MORE INFORMATION?

City’s ‘staircase to nowhere’ set for a makeover Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

The “staircase to nowhere” is set to get a makeover. Because the City of New Westminster demolished the western portion of the Front Street parkade as part of the Front Street Mews project, it was required to replace the existing fire exit ramp and stairs for the adjacent building at 642 Front St. When the mews opened last summer, the fire escape became a bit of a curiosity because it stood in the middle of the sidewalk and didn’t connect to the building. “It is now connected, as we said it would be,” said Coun. Chuck Puchmayr. “We are now just looking at how to put a little bit of lipstick on it.We have a functional, modern, bylawmandatory fire escape, as re-

quired by law.” In response to some concerns about the size and esthetics of the new staircase, city staff contemplated whether to remove the stairs and provide a different emergency exit or to keep it and enhance its appearance.The city ultimately decided to keep the staircase and enhance its appearance through public art. NewWestminster city council recently approved a recommendation from the city’s public art advisory committee to consider a “programmable public art space” for the fire escape stairs, with a cost of up to $75,000. Council also directed staff to engage an artist or designer through a public art call for the production and installation of an integrated public artwork on the structure. Coun. Bill Harper said he’d like the concept chosen

for the public art to tie into other themes or strategies taking place in the city, such as heritage, environment, multiculturalism and Intelligent City initiatives. Decorative metal screens, artistic projections and lighting are some of the concepts that could be explored as a way of enhancing the structure. “The city had no choice but to replace and build the new fire escape stairway that we see.The reality is they are quite utilitarian and look quite stark in the new urban environment that we have created down on Front Street,” said Mayor Jonathan Cote. “I think this is a real good test to see how public art can sometimes soften the edges on some of these more utilitarian but needed pieces of infrastructure that are required. I think this is a really good use of resources.”

Makeover coming: The City of New Westminster recently approved a recommendation by the public art advisory committee to consider a public art space for the ‘staircase to nowhere.’ PHOTO RECORD FILES

As of last summer, the city indicated the staircase had cost $200,000 to con-

struct, but the city still had to remove overhead utility lines. No update on the cost

of the staircase was available at the Record’s deadline.

Brow of the Hill residents want a greener neighbourhood

Continued from page 1 It’s got benches, it’s got a small play structure, it’s got a picnic table. It’s got enough space to run around with a soccer ball. It takes up two house lots.” Cavanagh said a map of New Westminster shows the city has some decent coverage of trees, but there are hardly any street trees in Brow of the Hill. “There are entire blocks

where there is not a single tree on the street,” she said. “It’s a problem in our neighbourhood because we don’t have a lot of single family homes, which means there isn’t green space making up for the lack of street trees.” The Brow of the Hill Residents’ Association is asking the city to plant 1,000 trees in the next 10 years, beginning with 100 tree plantings

this spring. Resident Rick Vugteveen said 17 to 18 per cent of New Westminster’s population lives in Brow of the Hill, so that figure lines up with the city’s goal of planting 10,000 trees in 10 years as part of its urban forest management strategy. “We can see very clearly the Brow of the Hill is a very large, very dense area with some very major pock-

FRESH CHOICES

ets where there are no trees, there is no easy access to parks. And this is impacting a very substantial number of people because it is one of the densest areas of the city,” he said. “When you think about having a datadriven approach to prioritizing investments, to us anyway that seems like a very clear signal for investment.” While the residents’ associations recognizes a large

park isn’t in the cards, it believes there are ways to create green spaces in the neighbourhood.They cited Blackford Street, Seventh Street and Queens Avenue as potential locations for pocket parks and village greens. Coun. Patrick Johnstone believes there may be opportunities to re-green some paved areas in the Brow of the Hill, as there are some

areas with wide streets and little traffic. “There are opportunities for us in those areas to figure out ways to green those spaces. It acts as traffic calming, it makes the community more conformable. It gives all the benefits of green space,” he said. “It is not like these are heavily trafficked roads.” Council referred the issue to staff.

Housing, child care a key part of NDP plans Continued from page 1 replacement of the Pattullo Bridge.” While the plan under the previous Liberal government was to largely fund construction of the new bridge through tolls, Cote said that’s changed because the NDP government has eliminated tolls. “That has essentially eliminated the main funding source, so pretty much to make this bridge project occur it is going to require the provincial government to fund the replacement of this bridge,” he said.

Opinion OUR VIEW

High time could have bumps in the road ahead After decades of sniggers about it being “high time” to legalize marijuana, and winks about 4/20 celebrations, the world of weed is ditching the jokes about reefer madness and going mainstream. Last week, the province announced its long-awaited regulations on where and how legalized pot will be sold – in a manner similar to alcohol sales. B.C.’s approach to the is-

sue seems prudent to most observers and is based on some of the lessons learned in other jurisdictions. Marijuana will be legal, but it won’t be a total free-for-all, either. Much to the relief of local politicians, municipalities will have a big say about who gets one of the coveted provincial pot shop licences. That means those operators who have been the

subject of court action, or who’ve caused major headaches where they’ve set up in advance of the legal starting line might not be at the front of the line. A number of regulations also set out fairly strict oversight on who’s allowed to be involved in the pot business, with the goal of keeping out organized crime. Key to that, however, will be enforcement. The issue of criminals

using legal “fronts” for a licence has already been raised as a concern. If the province’s ability to keep criminals out of casinos or to enforce rules around proxies in the real estate industry is any indication, we have reasons to be wary. But we are comforted that New Westminster is already developing a thoughtful plan and is providing opportunities for

public input and dialogue. The city has already held an internal workshop that looked at five key areas of future cannabis legalization. Everything from how close cannabis retail shops can be to schools, to how pots fit into the current city public smoking regulations will be looked at. The city is also hiring a consultant, holding a townhall meeting and getting

feedback from the public and businesses. That said, the road ahead is sure to be bumpy. Throwing another mood-altering substance into the public mix will certainly have impacts that we are not prepared for. But if we acknowledge that any plan we have now may need to be changed down the line, maybe we can all breath a little easier.

MY VIEW KEITH BALDREY

Nary a peep over pipeline plans It is telling that the words “Kinder Morgan” and “pipeline” were not contained in this week’s Throne Speech, an indication perhaps that the B.C. NDP government is trying to cool down emotions on the pipeline issue. In fact, it wasn’t until the very end of a long speech that bitumen – the Alberta oil sands product that flows through the Kinder Morgan pipeline – was even mentioned, and even then the speech said the government was simply “considering new protections” to improve the ability to respond to bitumen spills. No mention of the contentious idea of creating a new regulation to control how much bitumen actually flows in the pipe. No mention of the pipeline itself. A lot of the speech was spent addressing housing and child care, and other issues – such as affordability, inequality, health care, reconciliation, infrastructure, public safety, education and mental health – were all devoted significant portions of the speech. The first reference to bitumen was the seventh-tolast paragraph, an indication perhaps of the B.C. NDP not wanting to further strain relations with the Alberta NDP government. After vowing to use “every tool in the toolbox” to stop the Kinder Morgan expansion, the NDP government hit upon a novel idea: come up with regulations that would control the pipeline flow. In response, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is blocking the importation of B.C. wine into her province, and

she has dropped strong hints at bringing in even more sanctions against B.C. It’s hard to see how B.C. wins this battle from a legal standpoint.The federal government has clear constitutional powers, and any attempt by the B.C. government to essentially stop a federally approved pipeline from operating would likely be quickly deemed unconstitutional by any court. Of course, legalities are one thing. Politics is quite another, and this pipeline war is mostly about politics. Political necessity requires Notley to take a very aggressive and determined stand when it comes to sticking up for her province’s number 1 industry and the provincial economy. She has to fend off United Conservative leader Jason Kenney, who wants to take even tougher sanctions against B.C. Horgan’s position is more nuanced. He must appease the sizeable environmental base of his party, but, at the same time, he cannot alienate the business community. The real opposition will eventually move from the parliamentary stage to the extra-parliamentary one: the protest blockades and massive acts of civil disobedience will dwarf anything contemplated by the NDP government. And those protests may ultimately determine the fate of the pipeline. Either the Trudeau government will steel itself and push the pipeline through, or Kinder Morgan tires of all the delays and protests and simply walks away. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global TV.

Theft gives boot shot at fame

A performance by New Westminster’s Nonesuch Tales and Puppets nearly floundered after three young thieves made off with a school of yellow puppet fish. Nonesuch was putting on a show at a children’s festival in Coquitlam when the bandits nabbed the fish puppets in the early morning hours and escaped into maze-like Mundy Park.The show had to go on, however, so an old boot was swapped in to play the part of the fish. Mounties eventually tracked down the culprits, but no charges were laid after the youths agreed to perform community service at the festival as restitution for their piscatorial indiscretions.

The threat to heritage homes is greater than ever Dear Editor: The Queen’s Park neighbourhood has a long-standing tradition of failing to protect heritage homes in good condition. This has become more important than ever because in the Queen’s Park heritage conservation area (QPHCA), overall appearance will affect general housing values for the 700 affected properties. Charming old homes is what attracts people to historic districts. Run-down houses – not so much. Queen’s Park has a long documented history of grand, beautiful, well-maintained homes going into sad disrepair. For example, I live in a 1908 Edwardian home on Fifth Street built by the daughter of Alexander Ewen, famous cannery baron on the Fraser River. In a 1915 photo, it is in top condition. But by the 1980s, it was in such bad disrepair, it was considered a teardown and didn’t even make the heritage homes survey of that era. We were not the only house that has fallen into disrepair in its past. Let’s face it, the local heritage society spends nearly 100 per cent of their time and efforts rescuing old homes. Why do they need to rescue these homes? Because homeowners failed to maintain their major asset over time. Most architecturally controlled zones (like the QPHCA) closely monitor quality of repair of each house (unlike the QPHCA). Why do they do this? To maintain the overall value of the

homes in the entire neighbourhood. If they are successful at maintaining the appearance of all homes, individual home values will rise. That’s the argument. The New Westminster planning department argues that they don’t need to give incentives to well maintained heritage homes. Why? Their logic is that the homeowner will keep their house in good repair because it will help preserve the value of their major asset over time. If that is true, why didn’t this work in Queen’s Park in the past? History has proven this logic is wrong. You could argue that the threat to well maintained heritage homes in Queen’s Park is greater than ever. Why? Because of an aging population of homeowners who are retired; increased property taxes that stretch budgets and finally, the demands of the QPHCA that requires any home improvements be of a certain quality. For many, the choice will be to do no repairs at all. This is the elephant in the room for the QPHCA. No one wants to force a senior to repair their house when they are struggling to keep the lights on. I know I don’t. But the city planning department needs to acknowledge this problem and look to other jurisdictions for advice and help. Since incentives for homeowners in the QPHCA is the topic du jour; how about some incentives to keep good heritage homes in good shape? We can’t afford to rescue them all. Don’t let history repeat itself. Nancy Shaw, New Westminster

NWSS construction could begin in March Cayley Dobie

Construction on the New Westminster Secondary School replacement project could begin as soon as the end of March, according to school district officials. With construction on the new high school expected to be complete by May 2020 and an opening planned for September 2020, at this point everything seems to be on track, according to associate superintendent Karim Hachlaf. “Currently, the contractor is in a series of meetings that are ongoing with the city in regards to permitting. So we’re actively engaged in that process and that is going smoothly and, again, according to timeline,” he told the Record. The next step in the project is to put up fencing at the site and relocate some of the existing parking. From there, additional geotechnical work will be conducted before shovels hit the ground in the spring, Hachlaf added. “It’s going according

New Westminster RECORD THURSDAY February 15, 2018 13

People ON HER BEAT

Judy Darcy, MLA She’s dedicated to ... FIXING A BROKEN SYSTEM Why is she in the news?

When Judy Darcy entered politics, it’s unlikely she envisioned a day she’d see someone brought back to life after overdosing on drugs. But that’s been part and parcel of the New Westminster MLA’s job as B.C.’s minister of mental health and addictions. Since taking on the role in July 2017, Darcy has toured the province to get input on how to improve a “broken” system for folks with mental health and addictions. She has visited youth treatment centres, recovery homes, a homeless camp in Surrey, youth hubs, a First Nations health centre, safe-injection sites and countless other programs along the way. The Record had a chance to chat with Darcy about the new Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions. The following excerpts from that conversation, transcribed by the Record, have been condensed and edited for clarity. – Theresa McManus

Q: In July 2017, you anticipated a “huge challenge” when you were appointed as the minister of mental health and addictions.What has that journey been like? A:We are a start-up, but we are a start-up that is trying to create a better system for mental health and addictions, at the same time that we are dealing with the biggest public health emergency in decades. Over 1,400 people died last year from all walks of life, all corners of the province, including, I think the latest numbers are about 22 deaths in New Westminster. Q:What is your mandate? A:To build a better system for mental health and addictions, while this (overdose crisis) is going on. So my immediate focus

has been on the overdose crisis, but, at the same time, we are embarking on plans for what that looks like, and that, of course, starts with talking to people who have experience in the system with mental health and addictions. Q:What have you learned? A: Everybody has a story, which is not surprising because one in five British Columbians – that means one in five people who live in New West – are struggling with a mental health issue. Some mild, moderate, some more severe. But one in five. A slightly smaller percentage are dealing with addictions, but addiction affects every single family. Every family, including my own. Q:What is your family’s experience with mental health? A: My mother struggled with mental health and addictions in her adult life. I know what the stigma is like around that because I grew up in a small town

in Ontario, and you didn’t say your mom was in a psych hospital. I grew up in Sarnia, Ontario – I was born in Denmark but grew up in Sarnia. If you said she was in St.Thomas, which is where the big psych facility was, that would be like saying she was in Riverview.You know? So you didn’t say that.We pretended she was in an acute care hospital. She just kept being admitted and released. It wasn’t talked about. That was a while back, but stigma is still an enormous issue. Q: One of your ministry’s announcements centred on an advertising campaign with theVancouver Canucks regarding the stigma surrounding addiction.Tell us about that. A:The purpose of this ad campaign is to combat stigma by saying to people, very powerfully, this affects everybody. And it is right across the province.Vancouver and Surrey and Victoria have the most deaths

by overdose, but it’s Abbotsford, Chilliwack, New Westminster, Kelowna, Kamloops, Prince George, Duncan, Nanaimo. It really is everywhere and it really is people from all walks of life. The figures I have seen say 17 per cent of the people who have died by overdose are homeless, so that’s 83 per cent who aren’t homeless.The majority are not, and the majority are people who are using alone at home.They die because they are alone.Well, they die because the drugs that they are addicted to are laced with poison and because they are alone and there is no one there to revive them with naloxone. Stigma means people use alone and people are afraid to seek help. So stigma is a big factor, both in the deaths but also in people not seeking help for mental health and addictions. Q:The Record regularly receives press releases from your ministry about announcements such as making

naloxone more available, addressing stigma or expanding services. Can you describe the approach you have tried to take? A:We have to be bold and innovative because four people a day are dying.We are escalating in many different ways.There are more harm-reduction sites across the province. …There’s a thousand locations now in B.C. where you can get naloxone kits, including hundreds of pharmacies. We have expanded access to lifesaving medications.The coroner said to me when I met with all of her senior coroners, if it weren’t for the poisoned drug supply, we would have had about 300 deaths by overdose.The overwhelming majority are because the drugs are contaminated with fentanyl or carfentanyl. Q:Why make prescription medications, such as methadone, and naloxone, which Continued on page 14


14 THURSDAY February 15, 2018 • New Westminster RECORD

People ‘I have cried many times’ Continued from page 13 blocks the effects of opioids, more readily available? A: If people are addicted, in the short term they have to be able to have safe prescription medication as opposed to poison. If we don’t do that, people will die, and you can’t possibly get on a pathway to treatment and recovery if you’re not alive.The first step often, if you can save somebody’s life, and we are trying to do that with access to naloxone and more people trained, we need to be able to connect them with treatment. For a lot of people that means suboxone, methadone or some other safe prescription medications that are alternatives to street drugs.Then connect them with longerterm treatment and longer-term recovery. But they have to be alive first. Q:The ministry has created an overdose emergency response consisting of a provincial centre and regional teams that will prioritize efforts to address the overdose crisis. What’s this all about? A: It is a public health emergency. I have said we need to treat it that way. We know how we respond to wildfires, we know what we would do if we had an earthquake – we have emergency response plans, so we said we are really going to treat this like a public health emergency. … I think we are truly treating it like a public health emergency and we are pulling out all the stops – as we should.There are more people dying from overdose than from any other single cause – vehicle accidents, you name it. It is

staggering. So we are doing more, we are doing it in more communities, we are involving more people, we are really trying to build it on the ground in those communities across the province. Q: How would you describe the system for mental health and addictions? A:We have a system for mental health and addictions that is broken. It is confusing. It is fragmented. It is uncoordinated. There are big gaps. People work in silos. So it’s a real challenge connecting people with the treatment and the services that they need, which is why my mandate is to build a better system for mental health and addictions, a seamless, coordinated one, focusing on child and youth mental health initially – and the overdose crisis, of course, which was the urgent priority. So it’s a real challenge to deal with an overdose crisis of this magnitude, a public health emergency of this magnitude, with a system that is in many ways broken. … That’s not going to get fixed overnight. My mandate over a number of years is to build that better system. I think mental health and addictions have been the poor cousin in the health-care system for

many, many years.Within that, addictions is the poorer cousin.That’s not saying that the mental health system is in good shape, because it’s not. In the coming months, we are going to be working on a plan for building that better system for mental health and addictions. Q: In your role, you must encounter some pretty heartbreaking situations. Have you cried? A: I have cried. I have cried many times. If I don’t cry when I am out there, I sometimes cry when I leave. But what I have learned to do over the last seven months, I’m learning how to take people’s stories and have them fuel my passion and my drive to make things better.The death toll, people sharing their stories about their loved ones. People email, write and phone a lot. I try and make some time every week to call one of those families and to hear their stories. It’s important for people in government to know what this is like for families.They are losing loved ones.That’s what drives the change that we are making. And those families really need to be able to share it, and they need to know that somebody is listening.

Six decades and counting for famous jingle NewWest resident celebrates 60th anniversary of the famous Woodward’s $1.49 Day jingle Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

If you see Tony Antonias around town and feel compelled to whistle, you’re not alone. The longtime Royal City resident is the artistic force behind the famous Woodward’s $1.49 Day jingle that ran on the airwaves for decades, before the department store chain closed in 1993.The Australian native wrote the iconic jingle on Feb. 17, 1958, while working as the creative director at CKNW.

As God is my witness, it was almost like a melody to me …

“I had just come back that Monday morning from six weeks of holidays in Australia. I bowed to my mother’s wishes to come home for Christmas,” he recalled. “Before I left, I went to Hal Davis and Bill Hughes and I said, ‘Listen carefully to me: when I come back, if there isn’t a brand new typewriter on my desk, I’ll quit.’ I had an old typewriter that nobody wanted, and the new kid on the block inherited it.” Antonias started working at the radio station as a copywriter on Jan. 31, 1955, soon moving up to copy chief and then cre-

ative director. Returning to work at the station on Columbia Street after his vacation, he was pleased to find a brand new typewriter on his desk, but his mood soon soured when he was called into the sales manager’s office and asked to do something “very creative” for Woodward’s Department Store’s $1.49 Day – ads that normally featured someone reading a list of sale items. “I blew my stack,” Antonias said. “I said, ‘No way. That’s my junior’s job to call Woodward’s and get the items for $1.49 Day. Forget it.’” Antonias said he was “mad as a wet hen” when he returned to his desk, where coworkers were admiring his new typewriter. “I was so mad I swung my hand around and it hit a key and it went ding. Everybody looked up. ‘What was that?’ I hit my typewriter and the ding became ding, ding. As God is my witness, it was almost like a melody to me. I sat down at my new typewriter and I wrote: $1.49 Day Woodward’s, $1.49 Day Tuesday. I had the melody.” Working with CKNW’s record librarian Dick Abbott, Antonias soon had a jingle on his hands and recorded it that weekend. But when reviewing it with Abbott on Monday morning, Antonias felt something was missing – and they added a whistle at the beginning and end of the jingle.

A LASTING LEGACY: Tony Antonias wrote the iconic $1.49 Day jingle for Woodward’s Department Stores 60 years ago. He’s inviting community members to help him celebrate the milestone at a short reception at city hall on Monday, Feb. 19. PHOTO JENNIFER GAUTHIER The $1.49 Day jingle – featuring Antonias whistling – was a hit for Woodward’s as soon as it hit the airwaves that April. Three years later, the Hollywood Advertising Club in California awarded Antonias an International Broadcasting Award for creating one of the World’s Best Broadcast Advertisements. How catchy was the $1.49 Day jingle? A man once ventured into the CKNW studio with his mynah bird, who whistled the jingle on command. On another occa-

sion, Hughes, who was the station’s general manager, called Antonias into his office to relay a call he’d received from a health facility in New Westminster. “They phoned Bill Hughes to tell him they had this little boy who had never opened his mouth to say boo – until $1.49 Day hit the air.Then he started singing it,” Antonias smiled. “It’s that crazy?” During his 40-year career with CKNW, Antonias wrote thousands of ads for various companies, but it’s the $1.49 Day ad for which he is best remembered.

‘Oh, how is Mr. $1.49 Day?’ I get it all the time. “‘Oh, how is Mr. $1.49 Day?’” he said of a recent greeting from a stranger while walking uptown. “I get it all the time.” Antonias, who can’t believe it’s been 60 years since he wrote the jingle, believes the ad’s appeal to people who remember it so fondly is that it takes them back in time.

Now retired, he keeps busy by promoting arts happenings around town and appearing before city council to spread the word about various events. To celebrate the jingle’s anniversary, Antonias is having a small reception in the foyer of New Westminster City Hall on Monday, Feb. 19 from 5:30 to 6 p.m. Community members are invited to attend and enjoy cake and beverages at the event that’s taking place prior to that evening’s council meeting.

The Arts Council of New Westminster’s film series continues on Monday, Feb. 26 with LovingVincent, the biopic telling the story of artist Vincent van Gogh. The film brings the paintings of van Gogh to life to tell his story; every frame of the film is an oil painting, hand-painted by one of 125 professional artist who travelled from around the world to be a part of the production. LovingVincent was first shot as a live-action film with actors, then handpainted over frame by frame

in oils. “The final effect is an interaction of the performance of the actors playing Vincent’s famous portraits, and the performance of the painting animators, bringing these characters into the medium of paint,” a press release notes. Stage actor Robert Gulaczyk, in his first film role, appears as Vincent van Gogh.The cast also includes Douglas Booth, Eleanor Tomlinson, Jerome Flynn, Saoirse Ronan, Chris O’Dowd, John Sessions, Aidan Turner and Helen McCrory. The movie is on at 7:30 p.m. at Massey Theatre, 735 Eighth Ave.Tickets are $9

With the musical set to open on the Massey Theatre stage on Feb. 21, Monteleone knows that more than a few Kleenex will likely be required once her students hit the stage. “It’s what we’ve been working for and building up to,” she says. “We get to establish emotional connections with these students like no other.” Monteleone is the director of this year’s musical, the highlight of the school’s forcredit program in musical theatre. She works alongside fellow teachers Lindsay Waldner (choreographer), Kelly Proznick (vocal director) and Steve Clements (orchestral director). This year’s musical is another huge production, featuring students from grades

Onstage WHAT: Crazy for You, presented by School’s Out Productions, the musical theatre program at New Westminster Secondary School WHERE: Massey Theatre, 735 Eighth Ave., New West WHEN: Wednesday, Feb. 21 to Saturday, Feb. 24, with evening shows at 7 p.m. and Saturday matinee Feb. 24 at 2 p.m. TICKETS: $20 regular, $18 senior, $15 child/student, through www.ticketsnw.ca or call 604-521-5050.

9 through 12, with a whopping 48 cast members, 11 crew members, 22 in the orchestra and a large group in the hair and makeup club led by teacher Traci Cave. This year’s selection of Crazy forYou, with music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin, represents a change in direction from last year’s offering, Legally Blonde. Monteleone has been itching to stage the clas-

sic musical for a number of years, since she first travelled to Victoria to see her former student, Ben Wardle, onstage with the Canadian College of the Performing Arts production. “I fell in love with the story and the music and I said, ‘We must do this musical,’” she says. Then she and her fellow teachers saw the Gershwin musical again when Gateway Theatre staged it in 2014 – with another New West alumnus, Henry Beasley, in the cast, and they all agreed: it was going to be on their list for the future. Monteleone points out that not only does it have the classic music that audiences will recognize – think such famous tunes as I’ve Got Rhythm and Someone to Watch Over Me – it also has a storyline with all-ages appeal: “It’s about following your dreams.” The romantic comedy tells the tale of Bobby Child, a reluctant NewYork City banker who dreams about performing on stage.

He’s sent to the sleepy town of Deadrock, Nevada, to foreclose on a theatre but instead meets Polly Baker, whose father owns the theatre, and falls hard for both the girl and the chance to save the theatre.

Monteleone is ecstatic to have found just the right students to play the lead roles: Grade 11 students Dan Chaves as Bobby and Scotia Cookson as Polly. Of Dan, Monteleone says: “He is probably one of the

hardest-working students in our group. He goes that extra mile.” Over his Christmas holidays, for instance, he spent seven hours working with dance captain Skye Continued on page 22

Arts & Entertainment Musical theatre program is thriving at NWSS ting to know each and every one as individuals. Even former students often come back to help with the productions.This year, for instance, Keira Jang – who played the lead in last year’s Legally Blonde and is now studying musical theatre at Capilano University – came back to do some

We need to make sure the arts stay alive … choreography. Beasley, who appeared in NWSS’s Grease, returned to do fight choreography. And Jesse DeCoste, who appeared in NWSS’s Annie and Grease and who’s now studying at the London Academy of Dramatic Arts, stopped in for a couple of rehearsals to work with the current crop of students. “It makes me emotional that these kids still want to support the program,”

Monteleone says. “They become our children.We get to teach them all the way up until they graduate.” The musical theatre production has become a credit course at the high school – something Monteleone and her colleagues pushed for so that students could earn credits for the massive amounts of hours they were putting in. But even though more work can now be done in class time, Monteleone notes it’s still a huge amount of extra hours for the teachers to actually produce the show.Which means that, after this year, they’re going to switch back to their previous model of every-other-year productions. For the 2018/19 school year, students will be able to take a Musical Theatre Foundations class that explores music, dance and acting; it won’t lead to a fullscale musical production but to smaller performances during the year.There will also be a new course in Theatre Production that will

shop, plus the opportunity to perform on its stage – has been a blessing for the program and allowed students to get a taste of what real-life theatre is like. The full musical theatre program will be back in 2019/20 with a full produc-

tion. Meanwhile, Monteleone is hoping that NewWest residents will turn out in force to support the show. “We need to make sure the arts stay alive in our community,” she says. “We want people to come.”

As they all work together, Monteleone says, the whole group becomes a real family, with older students mentoring younger ones, and the teachers get-

Onegin at Anvil Centre this weekend The Arts Club Theatre Company’s award-winning Onegin is coming to New Westminster this weekend. Onegin premiered in the spring of 2016 to critical acclaim and collected 10 wins at the 2016 Jessie Richardson Theatre Awards. The play, based on the poem by Pushkin and the opera by Tchaikovsky, features book, music and lyrics by Amiel Gladstone and Veda Hille. It follows the story of the Larin family and what happens when Evgeni Onegin visits the Larin family estate – and his romantic charms stir passions long forgotten. It’s directed by Gladstone, with musical direction by Hille and choreography by Tracey Power. The show has been on tour around Western Canada and is stopping for a show at the Anvil Centre Theatre in New Westminster on Sunday, Feb. 18. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. For tickets to the Anvil Centre production, see www.ticketsnw.ca or call 604-521-5050.

Arts & Entertainment Hey artists! Make art from the ‘stairway to nowhere’ Julie MacLellan LIVELY CITY

jmaclellan@newwestrecord.ca

Are you an artist with an interest in public art? Here’s a chance to put your stamp on a downtown New Westminster talking point – the infamous Front Street “stairway to nowhere.”The stairs, for those who have been out of the loop, were built as part of the city’s Front Street Mews project.When the western portion of the parkade was taken down, the city had to replace the existing fire exit ramp and stairs for the building next door, at 642 Front St. However, the fire escape became a subject of much discussion because the structure stood in the middle of the sidewalk and didn’t connect to the building. The structure is now connected, by the way – but the city’s plans to turn it into a public art project are moving on ahead. It’s a func-

tional fire escape, but the city also wants to add some dazzle in the form of “innovative and interactive” public art work, as a city call to artists says.The city is seeking art that will integrate a programmable, multimedia or new media component such as light or sound. See www.tinyurl.com/ NWArtistCalls2018 for all the details. Submissions must be in by March 1, and the art project has a budget of $70,000.The city is aiming for complete installation by July 1 this year. LOVE IS A CIRCUS Looking for a special event for you and your valentine? Check out Spark: Valentine Circus Cabaret, onstage at the Columbia Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 17. The evening is a cabaretstyle circus showcase presented by Vancouver Circus School and its Circa 51 program, exploring the many facets of love. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for the 7:30

Learn from Denmark and chill out, hygge-style Natalie Rocheleau

editorial@newwestrecord.ca

Now that we’re in the midst of winter, we can all use some help keeping cozy at home and in life. One recent trend that can help is the Danish concept of hygge (pronounced hueguh). Hygge doesn’t have a direct English translation, but it is essentially a feeling of coziness, comfort, happiness and connection with others. So how can we get a little more hygge in our lives? The New Westminster Public Library has the books to get you started. The book that started the craze: The Little Book of Hygge, by Meik Wiking, explains that this concept has made the Danes the happiest people in the world. It gives practical tips on becoming more hygge, including choosing the right lighting, socializing and even dressing, backed up by Wik-

ing’s years of research at the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen. Marie Tourell Søderberg’s Hygge:The Danish Art of Happiness will help you spot the hygge-rich moments we

understand instinctively but might fail to take the time to enjoy. Hygge happens, but it takes practice to remember to savour those moments. This guide will help you recognize hygge in your everyday life, and help create those delicious little but important moments. Louisa Thomsen Brits’ The Book of Hygge is a small,

very portable book. Each chapter covers a different element of the concept: belonging, shelter, comfort, well-being, simplicity and observance. Using proverbs, advice and explanations, it is a peaceful book that relaxes the mind and centres it on the elements of the hygge concept, in an effort to help instill happiness and relaxation in the reader. Finally, we get to food! The book Scandikitchen: Fika & Hygge will give you recipes for “comforting cakes and bakes from Scandinavia with love.” Hygge implies being together with loved ones.What better way to hide from the cold together than with some comforting, homemade baked goods? With the right atmosphere and company, a chilly winter’s evening can be a cozy celebration of the present. Come to the library to check these books out.

Take action, speak up and live your best life Dr. DavidicusWong HEALTHWISE

editorial@newwestrecord.ca

At the end of this life, we will each be judged by our words and actions. For most of us, our greatest regrets may not be the mistakes that we made but rather what we never got around to doing and saying: the experiences we only dreamed of living and the expressions of love and appreciation left unsaid. One of the great tragedies of human relationships is that few of us will know how much we mattered to others.We either take one another for granted or procrastinate the expression of our caring until all time has passed. Considering that others will judge you and your life by your words and actions, how well do these represent your greatest values and noblest intentions? Will even those closest to you know the real you? At least once each week (always on Sundays and

sometimes on Wednesdays), I take time to reflect on how I have scheduled my time. There are only 24 hours in each day, seven days in each week and 52 weeks in each year. If we don’t pay attention to the hours, days and weeks slip away with the months and the years. At the same time, I compare this to what is most important to me – my greatest values. There are two modes of living that steer us away from what we value most. In the reactive mode, we respond in the most expedient way to the challenge of the moment.We do what we can with what we have on hand. It consumes all of our attention, time and energy. And then, a new crisis arises. It’s like driving without a map, following detour after detour. At the end of your journey, you may be far from home. In the autopilot mode, we act according to an unexamined routine.We do almost every activity each day because that’s what we did the day before, the week be-

PRESENTED BY

OUR PAST

Early days of theatre and entertainment in the city Archie and Dale Miller

editorial@newwestrecord.ca

In early February 1888, a travelling group of entertainers was in New Westminster for two days of dramatic performances. A bit of research into both players and plays turned up some interesting background material, which adds to the role of theatre in pioneer days. The performances were to take place on consecutive evenings, a Monday and Tuesday, at the Herring Opera House.The troupe was led by Gustavus Levick, referred to as “the romantic actor” “supported by Miss Celia Alsberg and a powerful co’y.” Monday’s piece was “the great English melodrama Hoodman Blind,” while Tuesday featured “Bartley Campbell’s drama TheWhite Slave.” Hoodman Blind, first performed in 1885, was written by English writers Jones

and Barrett. It is the story of a confused man who blames some misdeeds on his wife but her “alike sister” has committed “such transgressions.” The White Slave by Campbell was first presented in 1882 in New York City. It is the story of a young woman who believes she is an “octoroon slave,” that is, one-eighth black by descent, and she tries to leave her past and move to a new life.The author, Campbell, was white although this particular story is in the current academic collection referred to as “Notable Kentucky African Americans.” This travelling troupe of players, together and separately, had performed in locations such as NewYork, Philadelphia, Boston, Carson City, Salt Lake City and San Francisco in the decade prior to coming to B.C., and the set of plays included Measure for Measure, Cym-

beline, Hazel Kirke and Uncle Tom’s Cabin. We could not find out much about Celia Alsberg, but there certainly was a story about Gustavus Levick. He married in 1875 and had a daughter in 1876. His wife Harriet sought a divorce in 1878 for abusive treatment and returned to her family’s home with custody of the child. In 1888, a couple of weeks after performing in New Westminster, Levick was charged with assault with a weapon, a heavy cane, in a saloon altercation in San Francisco. In the Royal City, however, everything seems to have gone well. The account of the troupe in town also pointed out that “both plays (were) mounted with special scenery and novel mechanical effects.” And so we have a piece of early theatre in New Westminster.

’Bellies restock cupboard at draft

By Dan Olson

dolson@newwestrecord.ca

They knew going in the big names would be off the board long before they’d get to the microphone. But the New Westminster Salmonbellies still exited last week’s Western Lacrosse Association junior draft with a couple of good catches, players who will help in the battle for building on last year’s Mann Cup run. New West used the 19th pick overall on righthander Nick Jensen, a six-foottwo Richmond native who toiled for both Delta and Coquitlam in the junior A circuit last season. Although his junior numbers reflect a role player, Jensen has the makeup and skills that can work within the team’s strong framework, New West general manager Dan Richardson said. “We like him. He was one of a few guys we thought could fall to us,” said Richardson. “He’s got some size and moves the ball up the floor well. Logan (Schuss) coached him and gave us good feedback on him.” Jensen tallied two goals and nine assists over 12 games in his graduating year. Over eight playoff games with the Minto Cup-bound Adanacs, he chipped in five goals over eight games. His role and production grew in the postseason, where Jensen counted 10 goals in 20 games over three years of playoffs. The ’Bellies didn’t have their own

first pick, having surrendered that in the deal a year ago that brought in Brett Mydske, Joel McCready and Nathan Stewart. That cost them the fifth pick overall, where Langley grabbed Coquitlam native Eli Salama, who Richardson said was in their crosshairs as well, and plays a similar game as Jensen. Not having selections in the first two rounds wasn’t as tough a predicament as many theorize, since the draft was seen as top heavy, with New West native Connor Robinson and Drew Belgrave expected to be long gone before the senior ’Bellies pick. Robinson, a two-time junior league MVP, was tapped first overall by Langley, while Belgrave was scooped up by Nanaimo with the third pick, after Coquitlam selected Sam deGroot with the second choice. “I don’t think you need to be much of a historian to know that we have a good track record finding diamonds in the fourth and fifth rounds,” added Richardson. “You need to have strong leadership, good character kids who listen to them, and the time to learn the league.” The club’s four next picks all came from the junior ’Bellies ranks: Jordan McKenzie (22nd overall), Nick Chaykowski (26th), Mitch Stokes (33rd) and Colton Bykowsky (40th). New West wrapped up the draft by selecting Coquitlam’s Jared Pozzobon and former jr. ’Bellie Mitch Flintoff.

First win at Mainlands

On the eve of Valentine’s Day, the New Westminster Hyacks senior boys put their heart and soul into starting the Lower Mainland 4-A basketball championships off on the right foot. On the strength of a big third quarter, the Hyacks powered past the Eric Hamber Griffins 90-64 on Tuesday. Fresh off of finishing third in the Burnaby-New West league playoffs, New West found themselves in a tough battle against the No. 12-seeded Griffins, who grabbed a brief five-point lead. The Hyacks battled back, and, after pulling even before halftime, surged ahead in the third quarter.They held

Hamber to just 23 points over the final 20 minutes. “We came out (of the half) and quickly grabbed a seven-point lead, and I could see my guys’ shoulders get up and their chins get higher,” noted New West coach Arno Richter. Klyde Macahilo scored a game-high 19 points, while Manraj Phangura counted 14 points and 14 rebounds. New West moved ahead to play No. 4-seed St. George’s yesterday (past the Record’s deadline). The New West senior girls advanced to the Lower Mainland semifinal by beating Handsworth 60-51. For more, go to www.newwestrecord.ca.

Going the distance: Douglas College’s Simran Bir fires off a three-point attempt during a recent PacWest game in New West. Bir tallied 19 points, including three treys, to lead the Royals past Quest University 82-59 on Friday, the first of a twogame sweep for Douglas. PHOTO LISA KING

Good times roll for both Royals

Just as it should this week for Valentine’s, but everything is coming up roses for the Douglas College men’s and women’s basketball teams. Both squads are on big rolls as they head into the final weekend of the regular season.The men’s team is on a 6-1 run, with the lastest wins com-

ing over Quest by scores of 9874 and 85-71. In the latter win, Kameron Johnson scored 20 points as Douglas broke a tie with a 3117 run in the third quarter. The Douglas women, meanwhile, also swept Quest by scores of 82-59 and 64-54. Rachel Beauchamp tallied

19 points and recovered 11 rebounds, while Nanaya Miki chipped in 16 points. A day earlier, Simran Bir cashed in 19 points, while Sarah Jorgenson tallied 16 points. The two teams wrap up the regular season with a pair of games at Capilano University this weekend.

Another week, another set of PBs for NW’s Schultz

Barely a month into the indoor track season and New West’s Nina Schultz has already set the bar high. The Kansas State University track star posted the seventh-best pentathlon score in NCAA indoor history and established a new under-20 Canadian national record in the process. She did it at last week’s Texas Tech Shootout, with three of her five events ending in new personal records.

“It’s definitely exciting, I’m happy with the score and the personal best, but anything can happen in the pentathlon and I just need to go out and keep improving and having fun,” Schultz, a sophomore, told K-State Athletics. “Overall, I felt a lot more relaxed and comfortable out there.” Her new personal marks were set in the high jump, with a clearance of 1.82 metres, the long jump (6.39m) and 800m run (2:19.79). Schultz began the day with a first-

place showing of 8.28 seconds in the 60m hurdles, an event in which she had established a new personal best just one week earlier with a time of 8.24. She finished first in four of the five competitions, while placing second in shotput with a throw of 11.61m. “Nina competed well,” remarked KSU’s director of track and field Cliff Rovelto. “She ran another sub 8.30 hurdles race, had a personal best in the high jump

again, a PR in the long jump and a very controlled 800 metres. Obviously this is a big score, but I think she can still improve a little in every event.” Her overall score of 4,502 points stands second in KSU history behind Akela Jones’ 4,643, set in 2016. Schultz’s previous indoor best of 4,340 came in the 2017 NCAA Indoor championships. Her finish in Texas was also the best result in the NCAA this year,

by 100 points, and put her seventh on the all-time NCAA indoor pentathlon list. Schultz is ranked fourth on the 2018 IAAF World senior list, two points back of American Erica Bougard. With a full slate of NCAA events, the 19-year-old is also preparing to represent Canada at the Commonwealth Games in Australia in April.

PATIOS

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes.
