Student flees country after threat from scammers Cayley Dobie

cdobie@newwestrecord.ca

A recent incident involving an international student has prompted police to put out a warning to all international students about scammers targeting students and their families. The incident happened last week, when an international student was contacted by someone pretending to be a “high-ranking foreign official,” and demanding the student comply with their orders or risk their parents’ safety, according to a press release from the New Westminster Police Department. The student was contacted through WeChat, a popular Chinese messaging and social media platform, and told not to reach out to their family, use their cellphone or social media, noted the release. Police say that at the same time the scammer was in contact with the student, they were also contacting the student’s family, threatening violence against the student unless the family gave them money. The scammers convinced the student to flee Canada. She was later located safe in another country, according to police. (Police did not say which country.) The investigation is ongoing at this time. “When incidents like this occur, students are threatened, defrauded of money, and coerced to go into hiding,” said New Westminster Police Department spokesperson Sgt. Jeff Scott in the release. “Once the online scammers have intimidated the student into hiding, they contact the parents and defraud them out of money.” New Westminster Police Department is asking anyone who receives a message or phone call they suspect is a scam not to reveal any personal information and to contact the police department at 604-5255411 or Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501.

Rally protests renovictions Theresa McManus

Three years after retiring, Liduin VanderSpek is being forced back into the workforce to keep a roof over her head. VanderSpek is among the tenants of the Lori Ann Apartment at 404 Seventh St. expecting to receive eviction notices so the owner can do renovations. Having lived in the building since 2005,VanderSpek pays $775 for her one-bedroom suite. “I have really enjoyed living here for the last 13 years.We were given the head’s up that we are going to get notice to be evicted so that they can jack up our rents by about $500 a month,” she said. “Like everybody else, I’ve been looking for an apartment. I finally found one.Yay. However, I did the numbers – it is going to take 92.3 per cent of my entire income to pay for rent.” VanderSpek, 67, said she’ll have to get a job so she can pay her new $1,200 rent and other living expenses.

“Stop this s--t,” she said when asked if she has a message for the B.C. government. “Excuse me, but this is just greed.” About 40 B.C. ACORN members and tenants rallied in front of the building on Monday to call on the province for tougher legislation. ACORN — a housing advocacy group — stated that the tenants are faced with a “precarious” rental market, as rents are rising and the vacancy rate for some types of units is less than one per cent. Heather McClelland, who lives in a twobedroom unit with her elderly mom and teenage daughter, has been searching unsuccessfully for a new home. “It’s difficult because I don’t use the internet,” she said. “For someone like me who is in a position where I have to be, unfortunately, on assistance, I have to scratch my way down to their office, get them to fill out the form. It’s a load of trouble to get a place. I have a cat so that’s even harder.They want more for a pet deposit. It’s too much, it’s way too much.” McClelland, who has lived in the build-

ing for 14 years, currently pays $1,030 in rent, but said that will rise to $1,800 after the renovations. She’s looked at apartments that ranging from $1,400 to $1,800 a month, but can’t afford those rents. “It’s crazy. It’s nuts. I just don’t see how they can do this,” she said, her eyes welling up with tears. “Everybody seems to be finding a place – I just can’t seem to get that luck.” In April, the province enacted new legislation under the Residential Tenancy Act that requires property owners to give tenants four months’ notice instead of two when being asked to move out because of a renovation or demolition. The Record could not reach the VS Rental property manager for comment before deadline. Coun. Jaimie McEvoy said the city has no way to stop renovictions because it isn’t allowed to reject building permits or negotiate with landlords about proposed repairs. McEvoy and Coun. Patrick Johnstone attended the rally.

Priorities

ARTS ALIVE: Photos from the Record archives show a sampling of the diversity of offerings on the city’s arts and cultural scene. Where the city is going with the arts is the subject of a new arts strategy – the draft of which has been released to criticism from the city’s arts community. (For full photo details, see www.newwestrecord.ca.) PHOTOS RECORD FILES tively little of that feedback turned into genuine twoway dialogue. “The consultations and the outreach they did to gather the information was really strong,” Jorgensen said. “It’s this back end of the process where they’ve shut down dialogue. … I think they’ve just missed a real big step.” Wright, who also sits on the city’s arts commission, was troubled by the speed with which the document proceeded when it came to the commission – where, she said, it seemed the city was only seeking a “rubber stamp” before sending it to council. Trentadue agreed the rapid pace may have worked against the document. “Staff has tried to move it along maybe faster than it should have been,” she said. Given the reaction,Trentadue said she plans to bring the arts strategy back to the arts commission and the arts strategy task force in the hopes that the two groups can come up with ways to make it right, with input

She envisions having more sit-downs and discussions with artists and arts groups to find out what went wrong and, more importantly, how it can be fixed moving forward. “I’m hoping to bring people together in a positive way,” she said. For Ewen, like Legere, the very existence of an arts strategy is a positive sign. She says the current New Westminster city government is highly supportive of the arts. “You have to have a will and a focus on the arts to make the arts essential,” she says. “You have to know where you’re going to know how you’re going to get there.” Trentadue acknowledged she doesn’t have all the answers – yet – but stressed she’s focused on making the city’s arts strategy right before council commits to it. “I hope that people will believe it,” she said. “I know that people don’t always believe what politicians say, but I do really mean it.”

How was the arts strategy drawn up?

The city followed a four-phase process in creating the new arts strategy: PHASE 1: March-April 2016 Reflection and deliberation: document review, industry research, SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) analysis

PHASE 2: September 2016 to March 2017 Engagement and listening: community consultation and data evaluation

PHASE 3: March to May 2017 Goals and commitments: creation of vision and strategic recommendations

PHASE 4 Goals and commitments: Finalize arts strategy for public consultation and council consideration in spring 2018 – source: Our Arts Impact, The City of New Westminster Arts Strategy 2018-2023

The BC River Forecast Centre has issued a High Streamflow Advisory for the Lower Fraser which will remain in effect through the week and into the upcoming long weekend. This means that river levels are expected to rise rapidly, but that no major flooding is expected. Minor flooding in low-lying areas is possible. Given the high elevated water levels, we are urging residents to remain aware and use caution when around the Fraser River shoreline and to please keep pets out of and away from fast-moving water. Below ground parking areas adjacent to the Fraser River may experience minor flooding or seepage during high water levels. Affected residents may wish to consider alternate parking arrangements during this period. The City will continue to monitor the situation through regular liaison with provincial officials and will continue to provide updates to the community as necessary via the City website and social media channels.

City COUNCIL

Public art spots mapped Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

A new plan has mapped out locations where public art could be placed in the years ahead. New Westminster city council recently received a draft of the public art plan that provides a framework to create opportunities for public art throughout the city. “I think the City of New Westminster has really, over the past five years, engaged in public art in ways that it never has before, and quite successfully,” said Mayor Jonathan Cote. “I know there are some public art pieces that some people in the community love and others not so much.There have been some debates around this table about public art, but overall I think there is a recognition that the City of New Westminster has really stepped up its game when it comes to public art, and we are now seeing really interesting pieces throughout our city.” A staff report said the plan will ensure the development of an inclusive, diverse and unique public art collection and a lasting cultural legacy for New Westminster. The public art advisory committee developed a number of broad themes that could be considered for public art, including: exploring the present and future; reflecting the interests and culture of New Westminster’s diverse communities; expressing issues and ideas inherent to New Westminster; relating to nature and the ecology of the city; distill-

ing the spiritual, material and emotional values of New Westminster; and recognizing and celebrating the city’s heritage. Coun. Patrick Johnstone said the six themes are good, but feels the document needs to provide more details about what those themes mean. Citing heritage as an example, Johnstone said the city needs to consider how it will put its colonial heritage into context and discuss how the heritage of underrepresented people in the city will be included in public art. “I think it needs to be fleshed out more before we can say this is a really good guidance document for people who down the road who are assessing public art,” he said. Coun. Jaimie McEvoy would like public art to recognize former historic areas of the city, such as its old Chinatown and Japanese areas. While people are currently unable to go to those areas today and know they’re in historic areas, he believes that’s something that could be celebrated through public art. Council referred the draft public art plan back to the public art advisory committee for refinements based on its input. While he likes the themes proposed, Cote wants assurances that the city won’t be too prescriptive when considering public art, and will instead give artists the “opportunity to really amaze us and come up with something brilliant.” A registry of the city’s public art can be found at www.newwestcity.ca/public-art.

Longtime volunteer runs for council Theresa McManus

A longtime New Westminster resident believes city council is the place where she can make the most impact on the community. During her 29 years in New West, Chinu Das has served on most city committees and worked for the school district and the United Way. Now retired, she’s hoping to continue her contributions to the community on city council and is running for council in the Oct. 20 civic election. “My years of living, working and volunteering in the city has given me an understanding of the strengths and issues in our community. I want the opportunity to work with the community and make an impact,” she said. “I know I’m able to bring a strong voice to a collaborative council that represents all residents of New Westminster.” Das once worked as a community school coordinator at Lord Kelvin Elementary School and then as the school district’s manag-

er of multiculturalism and settlement services. She later worked with the United Way. Currently a member of the city’s seniors advisory committee and the community and social issues committee, Das served on many of the city’s advisory committees, including the mayor’s task force on public engagement, the multicultural advisory committee and the museum and archives advisory committee. She’s also a member of the Welcoming and Inclusive Community committee that runs a newcomers festival. Having worked behind the scenes, Das would like to bring her knowledge and experience to city council.

“This way, running for city council means I can be at the table making decisions,” she said. “The timing was right. It was time to take that next step.” Das, who will be seeking an endorsement from the New Westminster and District Labour Council, said her campaign will focus on three main themes: ! A strong local economy: Das believes a strong economy will bring vitality to New Westminster by attracting people to live, work, and participate in all aspects of city life. ! A healthy, inclusive and vibrant community: Das believes New Westminster’s demographics have changed dramatically over the last two decades and that its richness in diversity brings a vibrancy to the community that should be celebrated, leveraged and embraced. ! An urban environment that is livable, accessible and safe: Das believes the backbone of the community is the infrastructure of housing, transportation and community-based recreation and support services.

Opinion OUR VIEW

Community driver program needed for seniors As efficient as they are, HandyDart and public transit don’t meet the needs of older seniors who still want to be able to get out into their community for appointments, socializing, shopping and more. That’s why it’s important to get behind the recommendation of the B.C. Seniors Advocate for a community driver program to be added to the community home support system that now provides bathing and medication services for old-

er people. It isn’t enough for seniors to rely on friends and family and a dwindling pool of volunteers to get around once they give up the keys to their vehicles. HandyDart rides work well if planned in advance, but many rides go unfulfilled; buses are difficult to get to, wait for and access for people in walkers; and cab drivers, once at the destination, won’t typically aid someone in getting to the door.

Itisn’tenoughforseniorstorelyon friendsandfamilyandadwindling poolofvolunteers… What’s needed is a service to fill some of these gaps, and the transportation report released this week by Isobel Mackenzie offers an intriguing solution: adding driving services to the programs that home support services typically offer on a sliding scale basis.

The idea would be to have two classifications of workers: the home care worker and a community support driver, both of whom are trained and meet the requirements of authorities. According to the seniors advocate, this publicly sub-

sidized service would complement, not replace, public transit and HandyDart, and could efficiently be added to the current home care service. This report is required reading for everyone: from health care and transportation officials to politicians, and anyone who expects to live past 75, because that’s when seniors’ car usage typically begins to drop. Ask yourself this:What am I going to do when my mobility declines and I have

to give up my licence? Am I prepared to be isolated and stressed? Will my family be able to help me? To quote Mackenzie’s report: “Seniors must be able to get out and engage in their communities, and transportation is key to achieving the social inclusion necessary for seniors to optimize their independence and community engagement.” We say “Yes” to that.

HCA won’t hurt QP home values This is in response to the unfortunately titled front page article, “Heritage home prices take hit,” the Record, April 26. The purpose of the Coriolis report referred to in the article was to analyze the 365 homes in the Queen’s Park neighbourhood in the advanced protection category of the Heritage Conservation Area (homes built before 1941). Due to the tremendous variety of house and lot sizes in this category, city council asked staff and the Coriolis Consulting Corporation to look into what could be done to assist home owners to meet the goals of the HCA — i.e. develop their properties to the fullest potential in keeping with the HCA objectives. There is no “hit to home values” because the incentives designed to offset any perceived negative effects have yet to be chosen and implemented. With their implementation, much of the concern about homeowners meeting the full potential of their properties will be addressed. B.C. Assessment has repeatedly stated that the effects of the HCA will not be known for at least a year and more likely two or three years, and we are only nine months in. The effect of the HCA on house values is still an open question. However, research on established HCAs throughout the country has shown economic growth equal to or greater than surrounding neighbourhoods and certainly not losses of hundreds

of thousands of dollars, as some like to argue. Part of the difficulty in assessing what has been happening in the Queen’s Park real estate market is due to the same factors that have been at play across Metro Vancouver, such as increasing mortgage rates and qualifying criteria and the (increase in the) foreign buyers’ tax. However, in speaking with local Realtors, they have stated that all markets in the city were fairly quiet in January, February and March, but that it has been very active in April – especially in Queen’s Park. In April, there were sales of homes surpassing the $2 million mark. We have also been told by these same Realtors that some of the buyers bought in the Queen’s Park neighbourhood because of the HCA protection. The HCA was developed to protect the character of this valued historic neighbourhood, and it appears to be doing just that. The city has done a very good job of consulting with and listening to the residents of Queen’s Park to develop incentives that will provide further benefits to almost every property. The forthcoming incentives, along with the design guidelines for new builds, are making Queen’s Park an even more desirable area in which to live. This is evidenced by four recent sales in the $1.9- to $2.285-million range. Kathleen Langstroth is president of the Queen’s Park Residents’Association.

Mary needed a new home The owners of a rental house were looking for the owners of a statue of Mary in March.The four-foot-tall concrete representation of the Holy Virgin standing with arms outstretched had been abandoned in the house a month earlier and the landlords were reluctant to simply toss it.While the statue had lost her hands, she was otherwise still in pretty good shape, so the owners had contacted the Record to get the word out. Phone calls to churches, cemeteries and, of course, St. Mary’s Hospital had all proved fruitless.

Cars aren’t going away, so let’s plan for them Editor: Re: Uptown development stirs up controversy, The Record, May 3. In regards to Coun. Mary Trentadue’s statement: “We need to stop building for cars and build for people.” I take umbrage with (that) statement. People drive cars, so when we build for cars, we are building for people. I am not too concerned about the development on Sixth Street because I don’t live in that area, but I do agree with Mr. Beckett about street parking. Even if you add only 10 per cent more cars to the current number of cars parking on New West streets, there is no room for them. I don’t believe that cars are going to go away. Even when we run out of gas, people will find a way to propel their vehicles with alternative fuels, and the reason they will do that is because cars are so convenient. There is no other mode of transportation that has provided the ease and convenience of the automobile. Perhaps it is time governments took their head out of the sand and started dealing with this issue in a constructive manner, and I am not talking about more fuel taxes, congestion taxes or any other means of penalizing people who are just trying to get to work every day. People rarely live in the same neighbourhoods where they work. They haven’t done that for a long, long time. Services are not always conveniently located in every neighbourhood. Some people have to travel great distances to get to work or access services,

and some people simply don’t have the luxury of using public transit. It is unconscionable to allow all this new development and not deal with the traffic congestion in that area, or the many other traffic congestion problems in other areas of the city. I’ve lived in New West for four years and I haven’t seen any improvements in these areas. I don’t drive anymore. I take public transit everywhere and I think we have a wonderful public transit system, but it doesn’t solve all our transportation issues and never will. New West doesn’t have a lot of area to grow, but it is going to grow anyway and it is inevitable that increased density will increase traffic congestion. We would be wise to deal with it now, before it gets much, much worse. Betty R. L. Gray, New Westminster

Speed bumps making life better for our street Editor: In a surprise move, we got speed bumps along Quayside Drive about six weeks ago. The place has become peaceful again. One feels safe crossing the streets. Motorbikes aren’t roaring down the street as frequently. A lot of truck traffic has disappeared. Thank you to whomever. Cars are actually slowing down. Now we see this is temporary. Please join me in encouraging council to see that these measures are used wherever they are of benefit in New Westminster. Mike Hoyer, New Westminster

News of two more portables being added to the already crowded Queen Elizabeth Elementary School site has parents concerned about the welfare of their children. Queen Elizabeth Elementary in Queensborough was built for a capacity of roughly 300 students, but a development boom in the neighbourhood has seen enrolment balloon to more than 400.To make room, Grade 5 students were moved to Queensborough Middle School and portables have been added over the years. Currently, the school has five portables and two modular buildings on the site, and because enrolment at the school is expected to continue to rise, the school district is bringing in two new portables to the site for next September (next year’s projected enrolment is more than 450 students). But parents don’t want more portables – especially if they don’t have running water or bathrooms. Alison Dendoff’s child is in Grade 2 at Queen Elizabeth, and, while her child isn’t in a portable, Dendoff is concerned about the distance the kids who are will have to travel just to use the washroom. “This school only goes up to Grade 4, so these are quite young kids,” she told

school trustees and staff at last week’s board meeting. Dendoff and two other Queen Elizabeth parents were at the meeting to ask the board to have the new portables plumbed. Right now, the modular buildings and one portable have plumbing. Students in the four other buildings have to either walk to the school use the washroom or the one portable bathroom. “I mean it’s kind of unacceptable the way it is, and it’s dirty.You’re walking in the mud to get there and it’s cold and it’s far, and from the last set of portables it’s going to be very hard to go wash your hands,” said one parent who wouldn’t give her name. Next year her

son will be in Grade 4 and her daughter will be starting kindergarten. Trustee Mary Lalji agrees. “It just seems like the right thing to do in terms of plumbing, not only for safety reasons but just in sheer number.We are packing kids on the site,” she said. Lalji wants the school district to plumb the new portables right away, but staff says that decision won’t be made until the principal and maintenance and operations staff determine if plumbing is necessary or not. “The principal is still determining what classes are going where and how the portables will be utilized, and if there is need for addi-

FRESH CHOICES

tional washroom space, that will be planned,” secretarytreasurer Kevin Lorenz said at the meeting. If a bathroom is needed, staff will install what’s called a washroom cart, which is a separate building that’s attached to a portable.The existing portable bathroom is a washroom cart, and it is accessible internally from one of the classrooms and externally by the others, Lorenz said. The principal, in consultation with operations and maintenance staff, is expected to make his decision by the end of the school year. If a washroom cart is necessary, it’ll be installed in time for September.

CRIME

Man facing child porn charges Caley Dobie

cdobie@newwestrecord.ca

A New Westminster man is facing child porn charges following a nearly year-long investigation by police. The New Westminster Police Department’s major crime unit began investigating the suspect in June 2017 in connection with images of child sexual abuse, according to a press release from police. Police obtained a search warrant, and on Dec. 13 officers searched the suspect’s

New Westminster home. The New Westminster Police Department announced the suspect had been arrested and charges approved. Shane Tucker, 46, is charged with accessing and possessing child pornography, said police. Tucker was released from custody and must abide by a number of conditions. Tucker cannot own, possess or use any electronic device capable of accessing the internet; possess any device capable of storing data; go into any public

park, public swimming area, community centre, daycare centre, school ground or playground where kids under 16 could be present (except with permission from his bail supervisor); contact or communicate directly or indirectly or be alone with someone who is or appears to be under 16 years of age; and he must not engage in activities, volunteer work or employment that could put him in contact with people under 16 (except with permission from his bail supervisor).

Ex-B.C. Lion charged with assault Former B.C. Lions player Joshua Boden has been charged in connection to an alleged domestic dispute. The investigation into Boden began Sunday, May 6 when New Westminster police were alerted to a domestic dispute between a man and a woman, but by the time officers arrived at the scene, the suspect – Boden – had fled, according to a press release from the New Westminster Police

Department. Using evidence collected at the scene, investigators spent the following few days tracking down Boden. They eventually located him on May 9 at an address on Sixth Street. He was arrested without incident, noted the release. “We’re thankful that he was located only a few days after the alleged offences and that there were no issues during his arrest,” said

police spokesperson Sgt. Jeff Scott. “Because this matter is before the courts, we are unable to comment further, but, in any case of alleged violence, we encourage people to speak up and report it to the police.” Boden, 31, is charged with assault, failing to comply with conditions of recognizance, dangerous driving and driving while prohibited. He remains in custody at this time.

Lead found in skatepark delays demo Cayley Dobie

cdobie@newwestrecord.ca

Demolition of the Mercer Stadium skatepark has been delayed once again – this time thanks to the discovery of trace amounts of lead in the concrete. The skatepark and surrounding greenspace is the site of the future New Westminster Secondary School and was supposed to have been demolished starting April 3. But bad weather delayed the demo two weeks, according to the New Westminster school district.Work, including site stripping and shallow excavation, got underway the week of April 16, but the skatepark remained untouched. Last week, the school district announced preliminary testing of the skatepark revealed trace amounts of lead deep within the concrete.The lead is likely from the spray paint used to graffiti the park over the years. Demolition of the skatepark is now scheduled to begin this week and continue until May 29.The contractor will be required to follow hazardous waste regulations and govern-

Queensborough street named after Roma Hall Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

A new street in a Queensborough subdivision is being named in recognition of the Roma Hall’s role in the community. Council has endorsed the name Roma for a new street near a Salter Street development. Roma is one of the names listed in a 2010 report. Coun. Patrick Johnstone said he recently learned a bit about the Roma

Hall’s history. “It played a really important role in the immigrant experience in New Westminster, for people who were sort of fleeing economic problems and depression, geopolitical strife and came across the sea and came together to form a community to support their heritage and help each other,” he said. “I think it’s an interesting representation of Canada’s cultural mosaic, of immigrants who come here from different communities at different times

and found ways to contribute to the community while honouring their heritage.” Johnstone believes it’s time for the city to review and update its street and public space naming policy. “Going through the evaluation that took place to get us to this name, which I support, I saw a lot of issues in that process that got us there,” he said. “We really haven’t dealt with colonization, with representing more diverse cultures in our community.”

Trafficcalmingplanpassed The Connaught Heights traffic calming plan focuses on some quick wins – and long-term gains. City council recently approved the neighbourhood’s traffic calming plan and directed staff to allocate funding for the program as part of the 2019 to 2023 financial plan. A staff report stated the traffic calming plan has two components: quick wins that can be done immediately, and shortand medium-term initiatives. “The intent of the project is to develop a plan to enhance the safety and livability of the Connaught Heights neighbourhood by managing the volume and speed of traffic using the local roads,” said the report. “This can be achieved by encouraging and facilitating improved sustainable modes of transportation, while maintaining adequate access and circulation for local residents.” The quick wins include sidewalk and street lighting design for 21st Street (Seventh to Ninth avenues) and Eighth Avenue (22nd Street to the mid-block bus stop) and traffic circle designs at 21st Street at Edinburgh and 21st Street at London Street. The city anticipates some temporary measures can get underway this year. “The installation of traffic-calming measures will likely be undertaken on a temporary basis to provide staff the opportunity to assess and fine-tune the geometric designs,” said a report. “After a monitoring period, temporary measures that are operating effectively would be installed on a permanent basis.” The plan also includes a long-term (more than five years) plan to rebuild traffic circles at various locations. Items included in the plan include: four-way stops (one at London and 23rd and another at Hamilton and 21st); curb extensions on the north and south sides of Eighth Avenue at 22nd Street; pavement and lane markings at a variety of locations; enhancements to the exit-only diverter on Dublin Street; and full closure for vehicles on London Street west of 20th Street. — Theresa McManus

Community Man overcomes abuse, addictions to help others

Fatherhood birthed clarity and revelation for recipient of annual Courage to Come Back Award Martha Perkins

editorial@burnabynow.com

Three months before he was supposed to be finally reunited with his birth father, Josh Dahling got news that sent him into a tailspin. His father had been murdered in Corfu and his body dumped into the sea. Dahling was needed to provide formal identification of the man he had not seen since childhood. It was a traumatizing experience in a young life already filled with trauma – immigrating to Canada from South Africa, his father’s deportation a short time later, debilitating poverty, being introduced to drugs at the age of seven by his stepfather, sexual and physical abuse, daily fights at school and seeking escape from it all through drugs and alcohol. “I think everyone who’s lived that lifestyle knows you have some pretty dark secrets,” says this year’s recipient of the Courage to Come Back award in the addictions category. But it was his own experience as a father that helped Dahling slowly put his life back together. In the moments after his son was born, he experienced a moment of clarity and revelation. Although the future was an incredibly daunting proposition, his normal reaction to panic and run was replaced by something else: knowledge that he was not only a father but that he had to be a father. He was going to be there for his son so his son could have the childhood everyone deserves – a childhood Dahling had been denied. It wasn’t easy. A later

custody battle for his two daughters meant Dahling and his three children lived in Metro Vancouver but had to travel, sometimes daily, to Nanaimo so his children could attend school there. Health problems, including PTSD, meant that Dahling needed to go on disability, supplementing his meagre income with website development and the generosity of friends. He had to put his own education on hold to devote himself to being a single parent but continued to help others as they battled through their own addictions. Today, his son is studying to be a plumber and Dahling’s daughters are thriving

We should all give to our communities …

as well. Dahling’s own life is pretty good, too. He and his partner run the Camp Kerry Society, an end-of-life and bereavement service for people across the province. It had been at a Camp Kerry Society retreat that Dahling had had another revelation: people actually say out loud “I lost my father” or “My mother died” rather than try to bury the pain and soldier on alone. He embraced the healing power of being able to talk through his grief and now believes bereavement leave should be provided in the same manner as maternity leave. “Over 90 per cent of the people I’ve worked with who had addiction issues had a significant loss around the time their addic-

tion started or accelerated,” he says. When Dahling was courtordered into a treatment program, his intention was to get clean, get out and start using again. “I liked the way drinking and drugs made me feel,” he says. He wanted, and needed, the escape from reality. “I actually didn’t think I had a problem. It felt like I was being stopped – it felt like the world had a problem with me. I was determined to go back to doing drugs and being a rock star.” For the first two years of his sobriety, “I did everything you’re not supposed to – I worked in a bar and saw how regular people drank, which was weird.” That time in his life also coincided with a court appearance for assaulting an officer during an altercation.The officer said charges would not be pursued if Dahling agreed to go into schools to share his story about the dangers of that lifestyle. “I said drugs made me feel great and I wasn’t going to tarnish my reputation,” Dahling says of his initial response. Faced with the court case, however, he quickly acquiesced. That experience gave him exposure to social workers, not as a child afraid of being taken away from his mother and siblings, but as an adult who could see the good they can do in children’s lives. It was when he was studying to be a social worker he discovered a way to deal with the dyslexia that had previously made school such a struggle. He put green and red cellophane

paper over the pages of a book “and the words didn’t float around any more.” During his studies he learned about such things as PTSD and the residual impact of suffering the loss of his father three times – leaving South Africa a year before his father could join them, the deportation and identifying his rotting corpse. He put words to the jumble of emotions he’d felt as a child, and why he had dealt with life with anger and being intoxicated. When he met Dr. Heather Mohan, a registered clinical therapist and music therapist who had founded the Camp Kerry Society – which is based in NewWestminster – he realized the program needed to be more widely available.Together, in life and through the organization, they have built it into a service that provides counselling and support to

a multitude of people. “If I’d have had Camp Kerry (when I was younger), it would have been life changing for me,” Dahling says, adding that “only two of the hundreds, if not thousands, of kids I’ve worked with has been a statistic.” The society relies on donations, constant applications for government grants and the proceeds from a thrift store they opened in New Westminster. He works full-time as its director of youth services and director of operations. He handles those responsibilities on top of volunteering for every school trip and fundraiser at his children’s schools. There are still ramifications of his childhood trauma. He wakes up at midnight every night, conditioned to being alert during the time when his mother’s boyfriend would often beat her. However, he’s also

stopped being angry at his mother for not protecting her children more. He realizes she had her own traumas growing up in apartheid South Africa and that she always tried to do her best. His father, too, had not had it easy, having been disowned by his family.That peace of mind was “the missing link” in his sobriety. He also gets emotional sustenance from his job. “When people are dying, the majority aren’t thinking of themselves.They’re thinking of how they can make life better for those they are leaving behind. If everyone lived that way we wouldn’t have so much suffering. “I’m about to get an award for doing something that I think people should be doing anyways. We should all give to our communities and help other people.”

New West councillor earns national honour Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

Coun. Bill Harper is a national champion. In honour of International Open Government Week, the Public Sector Digest announced Canada’s Open City Champions on May 11 in three categories: city council; community leader; and city administrative leader. Harper was named Open City Champion in the city council category, beating out Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson and Toronto councillor Paul Ainslie. “Working together, we’ve made solid progress transforming New Westminster into a leader in open government through our efforts to expand our open data offerings and innovate with partners on new ways to use data for the benefit of communities. Robust open data platforms and strategies that engage communities and inspire citizens to get involved are important components in our efforts to find new and better ways to deliver services,” Harper said in a press release. “While my name may be the one on the award, this recognition is shared by many – by my fellow council members, city staff and the community

members who have worked with us to further our Intelligent City vision for the past six years.” According to a City of New Westminster press release, Public Sector Digest received dozens of nominations from across the country for the Open City Champion Awards in each of three categories. Nominees were judged by a panel

He has truly been a champion on council. of experts on several criteria including their contribution to the development, improvement and/or continuous support of their community’s open data initiative. “We’re very proud to see Bill’s many contributions to our Intelligent City and open data efforts recognized at the national level,” said Mayor Jonathan Cote. “He has truly been a champion on council of our Intelligent City initiative, and our community is making great strides as a result of his leadership on this front.” The Open City Cham-

pion Awards strive to highlight the importance of committing to more open, transparent and accountable local government. “Coun. Bill Harper of the City of New Westminster, embodies the city council leader that champions the open data cause. Bill is the founding co-chair for the city’s Intelligent City advisory committee. He has supported the collaboration on open data between the city and the University of British Columbia and was instrumental in launching the city’s first Hack our City hackathon event. Bill has continuously encouraged the city to push the boundaries with open data, working with staff to address gaps in their program identified through the open cities index,” said a news release from the Public Sector Digest. “In 2017, New Westminster climbed six positions in the index to sixth overall, landing the top spot among cities with a population between 50,000 and 100,000. Bill also provided leadership in the development of an open data user feedback loop that provides suggestions on how best to enhance the city’s open data efforts.”

NewWestminster French immersion students shone at the 35th annual Concours d’art oratoire held earlier this month in Surrey. In all, six students from NewWestminster took part in the French-speech competition. Organized by Canadian Parents for French B.C. andYukon, the competition recognizes outstanding public speakers in grades 6 to 12 in early and late French immersion programs and core French. This year, five students

from École Glenbrook Middle School participated, including Grade 7 early immersion student Avery Tamagi, “La pneumonie” (pneumonia); Grade 6 late immersion student Avery Hallate, “Le savoir est dans le passé, l’imagination est le future” (knowledge is in the past, imagination is the future); Grade 6 early immersion student PollyValkenborg, “Comment les boissons énergisantes affectent les enfants” (how energy drinks affect kids); Grade 7 late immersion student Hannah Brine,“Le don d’organe” (organ donation);

and Grade 8 immersion student Monika Arcadi, “Le féminisme” (feminism). Arcadi and Brine both won gold medals in their respective categories. (Brine also won a gold medal at last year’s provincial competition in the Grade 6 late immersion category for her speech about a book of poetry she wrote in honour of her late cousin Eva Markvoort.)

Market returns for summer in the park Markets on Thursdays starting May 24 in Tipperary Park Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

The NewWest Farmers Market is always striving to keep things fresh. The market will soon return to its spring/summer home in Tipperary Park, where it runs every Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m. until the fall. “May 24 will be our summer 2018 kick-off,” said Carly Fryer, president of the NewWest Farmers Market. “It’s our 10th year in operation.We’d like to welcome everyone to come join us every Thursday.” Formed in 2007 as the Royal City Farmers Market Society, the organization held its first official market in 2008. Last year, it rebranded and changed its name to NewWest Farmers Market. The organization has three strategic pillars: relationship building with its

vendors, customers, community, and local businesses and government; organizational wellness, which includes succession planning; and knowledge building, which includes advocacy and customer and community education. “For me, the knowledge building is the key,” said Matt Lorenzi, the market’s vice-president. “The reason I am involved, I am a big proponent of food security, farmland security, local produce, and the education that’s involved around that.” In addition to its winter and summer markets, NewWest Farmers Market makes its presence felt at various events around the city including Family Day at Anvil Centre, the Columbia StrEAT Food Truck Festival and Fridays on Front. “As we are getting bigger, we are getting invited to take part in more events,” Lorenzi said. “It’s great for us. It’s

also a challenge for organization and resources.” The market also works with the local food bank to provide low-income families with access to fresh produce through a low-cost produce stand.

Coun. Patrick Johnstone said NewWestminster is one of the only cities in the region that doesn’t have agricultural land, so the market helps address food security and ensures people have access to fresh, local food.

“It seems your organization is always bringing new things in and constantly keeping things fresh,” he told market representatives following a recent presentation to council. “That is how you keep an organiza-

2018 NEW WESTMINSTER

SALMONBELLIES After hosting the 2017 Mann Cup series at Queens Park Arena against the Peterborough Lakers, the New Westminster Salmonbellies refuse to stand down and are ready for redemption. The series went 4-2 in favour of the Lakers, but it wasn’t short of exciting. Queens Park Arena was packed, the atmosphere was unbelievable, and the players fed off of every single cheer, clap, and standing ovation. We are now heading into the 129th season of lacrosse action for the Bellies, and it’s sure to be a good one. The team has introduced a new line up of coaches for this season, including Rory McDade at the helm, as well as Ian Patterson, Darren McEwen, and Curtis Palidwor. “Rory brings a ton of playing experience from BC Junior, WLA and NLL as well as coaching experience in those three leagues as well,” says President and GM Dan Richardson. “We are very lucky to get a coach with his background and someone who understands the culture and history of the Salmonbellies is a bonus.” “Our coaching staff is very excited and looking forward to the challenge of

competing for the Mann Cup,” says McDade. “We have a lot of great pieces in place and cannot wait to get started working with players and management”. Returning from a one year hiatus to peruse his career as a firefighter, Jordan McBride is back on the roster and ready to help support an already strong offensive line. “Jordan is a leader on and off the floor and we’re excited to have him back,” said Bellies President and GM Dan Richardson. “His offensive ability will be a huge asset to our right side.” Transition/ Defensemen Brendan Ranford also makes his return. Brendan was the 1st round/7th overall pick in 2014 for the Bellies. His

speed and transition game will add even more depth to the current group. “You cannot put a price on the leadership he brings to our club both on and off the floor” said Richardson. At the WLA Draft back in February, the Bellies selected Nick Jensen as their first pick, 19th overall, out of the Delta Jr A program, followed by Jordan McKenzie

Arts & Entertainment Maple Leaf Singers set to celebrate 50 years of song jmaclellan@newwestrecord.ca

For half a century, they’ve been entertaining audiences around the Lower Mainland with their high-energy performances. Now the Maple Leaf Singers are coming to the Massey Theatre stage May 26 and 27 with Solid Gold, their 50th anniversary extravaganza. Since its beginnings, the group has been closely tied to New West. In fact, a press release notes that the singers started up in 1968 with 24 members under the leadership of George and Marie Gillis of New Westminster. After 33 years, the two retired in 2001 and passed the baton to Wilson Fowlie, who has been the group leader ever since. Coming this September, Rob Gillis – son of George and Marie, and current assistant music director – will assume leadership. “The Maple Leaf Singers are an important part of the

crowd. Flowering dogwood bears fruit in the fall to keep them coming, as does crab apple, which also fruits in the fall but holds its fruit into the winter. Trees are the bird equivalent of a tall condo building, bustling with life.White oaks provide nesting opportunities to woodpeckers, jays and even wood ducks, and unlike other oaks, white oaks produce acorns every year. Native tree species are found to support more bird life.We recommend red ma-

ple or black, red and white spruce, gray, white and yellow birch or black willow, if you have lots of space. Once you have created a bountiful bird food-garden, supplement with the right bird feed. Birds will forgive you for letting the feeders go empty. People worry that the birds depend on them for feeder-food.While a feeder helps bring birds to your yard, it will only ever be one of many food sources they depend on, so don’t race

home from the cottage to fill your bird feeders. Buy seed based on the birds you wish to attract. The following guidelines by BSC will help you understand what type of feed will attract the birds you want: Black oil sunflower seed will attract cardinal, blackcapped chickadee, mourning dove, dark-eyed junco, song sparrow and common grackle. Suet and bird peanuts attract blue jay, red-breasted nuthatch, downy woodpecker, white-breasted nuthatch, hairy woodpecker. Avoid “human peanuts” as the salt is harmful to birds. Nyjer/black oil sunflower will attract the smaller house finch, American goldfinch, purple finch, common redpoll, pine siskin.

With enough food and places to make nest, remember water.This is extremely important as birds, like humans, need to drink and bathe. As you enjoy the bird chorus of the oasis in your yard, consider joining a “citizen science” initiative through BSC such as Project FeederWatch. Simply count the kinds and numbers of birds at your feeder and report it back for BSC to add to their database.

In the chorus that is a living garden, our favourite section is the singing birds. A breeze through tall grass, the crunch of gravel underfoot and a frog croaking all play their part in this living soundtrack. Nothing can stop us in our tracks like birdsong. Our friends at Bird Studies Canada remind us that birds are an important indicator of the health of our environment. Healthy planet, healthy birds. Our favourite way to promote and enjoy birds is bringing them right into the backyard by providing food and habitat. Here is how: Plants are a one-stop shop for food and shelter. Birds prefer fruits and seeds right off the plant, and most birds either build their nests in a tree, shrub or stand of grass, or they make their nests from pieces of it. Flowers such as asters, black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia), echinacea (purple coneflower) and coreopsis

not only add colour to your yard but attract a range of song birds from cardinals to colourful finches. Leave perennials standing throughout the winter so they can continue to be foraged and cut them down in the spring. Native ornamental grasses attract sparrows, finches and other small birds that forage for seeds. Robins and sparrows pick up coarse blades to construct the main walls of their nest, then revisit for finer-textured blades to pad the soft lining of the interior.We recommend planting big bluestem, little bluestem, northern sea oats or side oats. Like your perennials, leave these grasses standing through the winter to provide habitat for overwintering species such as darkeyed juncos. Robins, waxwings and cardinals build nests in shrubs, eating and singing like old friends at an East Coast kitchen party. Mulberries and serviceberries are two medium-sized, summer-fruiting shrubs that are especially popular with this

Vagabond hosts dinner Vagabond Players are wrapping up their season with a classic laugh-out-loud comedy. You Can’t Take ItWithYou is onstage starting May 31 at the Bernie Legge Theatre in Queen’s Park. The play, by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman, follows the story of an engaged couple, Alice Sycamore (played by Gina Foster) and Tony Kirby (Jon MacIntyre), whose romance is hindered by their wildly disparate families. When Tony brings his straitlaced parents to dine at the artistically offbeat Sycamore home, their shock shows Alice that marriage with Tony is out of the question.Tony’s attempts to keep the families together are hampered by a variety of strange activities in the Sycamore household – such as the fireworks factory in the basement, the printing press in the parlour, and Grandpa’s interview with the tax collector. The classic comedy from the 1930s is the only play with a film adaptation to win both the Pulitzer Prize

Community OUR PAST

Victoria Day key part of New West’s history has Her Majesty’s government swindled the people of NewWestminster and that in the most bare-faced way, but Her Representative with refined cruelty, has selected the Queen’s Birthday, a day which has always been so enthusiastically celebrated here, as that upon which to crown the perfidious act, by proclaiming ‘the selection of the Capital within the town which bears Her Royal name.’” The writer continued that the show must go on in the following comments: “We do not see why the people should be cheated out of celebrating the 24th … or the 25th in this instance, seeing that the 24th falls on a Sunday … on account of what has recently happened.” This entire event was a trying experience for those of this community, but there seems to have been equally

Victoria Day celebrations have been a proud part of this community. In 1868, the decision was made to change the city that would be the capital, and it was re-established inVictoria and removed from New Westminster.Victoria Day did take place, but some strong words were in evidence as things moved forward.The editorial in The British Columbian of May 13, 1868 made its point clear, that although the town and its residents did not like was had happened, the important day and those who enjoyed it should not suffer. The editorial under the heading “The Queen’s Birthday” reads: “There can be no doubt that the loyalty of this community has recently been subjected to a most cruel test. Not only

strong feelings aboutVictoria Day and not allowing it to be damaged by the decision to move the capital status toVancouver Island.The editorial went on a bit more: “Let us celebrate the day, by all means, and enjoy ourselves as best we may, under the peculiarly trying circumstances.We shall all feel the better for it.” Victoria Day 1868 was a great success, with residents and visitors taking part in the festivities, games and competitions, and entertainment. So much was involved that they needed two days to fit it all in. A torchlight parade on land and water wrapped things up. Come out on Monday forVictoria Day in Queen’s Park and see the continuation of this event that, in 2018, includes the Ancient and Honourable Hyack Anvil Battery. See you there.

SUMMER CAMPS & ACTIVITIES

Keep in touch with kids at camp

S

ummer camp is an exciting way for children to spend their extended vacations from the classroom. Camps cater to various interests, including sports, crafts and even technological hobbies. Children who attend overnight camps may spend several nights away from home. Some kids take this in stride, while others, possibly away from home for the first time, may experience some homesickness. Staying in touch while the kids are at camp can help alleviate fears and show children their parents care. Camps now handle communication issues differently than they might have when today’s parents were campers. While it once common for campers to send handwritten letters or short missives home to mom and dad, technology has changed that. Today’s campers may have access to email accounts, or they even may be allowed to bring mobile phones along. This can facilitate communication, but it also may take away from the camping experience. Parents need to find a balance between what might be too little or too much contact with campers. After all, camp is kids’ chance to grow independent for a few days or weeks. Learn camp rules: The camp will likely provide information regarding correspondence. Camps may

permit parents to send one-way emails and regular mail, but limit campers to handwritten letters only. Determine if mobile phones are allowed or should be left at home. Knowing the rules can help parents and kids plan accordingly. Pack correspondence supplies: Send kids to camp with fun papers, stickers, pens, and other crafty items. This way they’ll be inspired to write home once or twice. Provide brief lessons on how to address an envelope for campers who may not know how. Check blogs and texts: Some camps may blog about campers’ progress, post information on social media or send out mass texts. These messages can reassure parents that their youngsters are doing just fine. Figure out which tech options are available from camp administrators. Send a care package: Treat the campers to some supplies from home. Pack camp-approved snacks and other reminders of home. Be sure to include enough for the entire cabin and your son or daughter will be the camp star. Expect some silence: If camp is going well and campers’ days are fun-filled, they may be too busy for daily correspondence. Parents may get nervous when they don’t routinely see or hear from their children, but chances are everything is going swimmingly. The camp experience is often harder on parents than children, as campers have their friends and activities to keep them busy. Brief communication helps campers grow more confident and independent.

Getcreativewithpastasauces Chef Dez

ON COOKING editorial@newwestrecord.ca

I have suggested on several occasions in this space that one should try their hand at making fresh pasta instead of always relying on purchasing it dry from a bag or box. Congratulations to you if you took my advice and tried your hand at this wonderful culinary skill. For those of you that did, and for those of you that never will, I want to give you some ideas for sauces to complement your pasta, be it from fresh or dry. The most common is the classic tomato sauce. Although chefs will consider it sacrilege to any pasta, a number of people still buy canned or jarred premade tomato sauces. Some will at least get creative by adding extra ingredients like onions or garlic, but nothing can take the place of good rustic homemade batch of tomato sauce.This does not have to be the style that simmers for

hours on end, either. Many great homemade sauces can start out with a little help from canned diced tomatoes and some tomato paste, and be done in record time. Reduce it down even further at the end (by simmering some of the water content out) and replenish with some whipping cream and you now have a rosé sauce for those special occasions when calorie counting is not on your priority list. Any ground meat (beef, pork, chicken, turkey, lamb, etc.) cooked up at the beginning of the process will magically transform this rustic tomato or rosé sauce into a hearty meat sauce. Sausage meat can also be utilized in the same manner by removing it from the casings and cooking the same as ground meat. Italian sausage (mild or hot, depending on your tastes) is wonderful for this. A béchamel (white sauce) is a very simple sauce. Don’t let the fancy French culinary name scare you – it’s just milk thickened with

flour and butter. A little seasoning (salt, pepper, and a pinch of ground nutmeg), and you have an incredible sauce that can be a blank canvas for your favourite cheeses to be melted in or tossed with bits of grilled chicken. Add garlic and parmesan and you will basically have alfredo sauce. Oils infused with flavours and seasonings can be the base of a tasty light pasta coating. Heating olive oil over medium to low heat and letting ingredients like crushed garlic, chillies, herbs, etc. infuse their way into transforming an ordinary oil into a savoury enhancement.These types of sauces are perfect for less filling side dishes or during hot weather when a heavily thickened sauce is not desired. A batch of seasoned simmered vegetables can also be transformed into a smooth sauce bursting with flavours with the help of a blender, food processor, or hand immersion blender. One of the quickest pasta sauces you will ever make

is a browned-butter sauce. It is exactly what the name states it to be – butter that has been browned.Take a hot pan and place a handful of cold butter cubes into it. Stir, or lift the pan and swirl the melting butter, until the butter foam has just started to brown, then toss with your favourite pasta. Your favourite fresh delicate herb (basil, oregano, sage) can also be added at the time of the cold butter for an incredible infusion of herbal essential oils. Although we have all been taught never to add butter to a hot pan for fear that it will burn, the trick is to stop the cooking process of the “browning” butter before it hits the “burning” stage. Use salted butter and you will have to do less seasoning afterwards. I want this column to be is an invitation for you to blow some dust off your cookbook collection or search recipes from the internet. Have fun.

A garden with plants sacred to Aboriginal people has been created at the college to promote cultural awareness and learning.The 10- by two-metre raised bed is located on the fourth floor of the New Westminster campus, outside the Aboriginal Gathering Place, which is a venue for traditional Aboriginal ceremonies, meetings and study. “We wanted the garden to go hand-in-hand with the Aboriginal Gathering Place, and we wanted to create a garden that would provide medicinal value as well as enhance the spiritual essence of the space,” said Dave Seaweed, the college’s Aboriginal student services coordinator. Plants in the garden include tobacco, sweetgrass

‘Bellies pull out OT win over Delta Ex-Islander wields OT hammer in NewWest win Dan Olson

dolson@newwestrecord.ca

It was more a torrential outburst than a mere early-season lacrosse game. You could excuse the netminders charged with facing rubber if they thought they were in an Avengers: InfinityWar movie re-enactment. The New Westminster Salmonbellies and Delta Islanders matched hammer and anvil on Tuesday, with the’Bellies emerging as 1210 victors only after a 10-minute overtime period. If it’s a sign that the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League is entering a year of parity, fans can only say “Bring it on.” The two teams combined for 121 shots over 70 minutes, with New West leveling 64 of those at Delta keepers Roman Rose and Brody Harris.The latter stepped in and was almost Thanos-like in repelling the ’Bellies attack. Newest ’Bellie and former Islander sniper Tre Leclaire was particularly stymied on the night, but got the last laugh when he sniped the game-winner three minutes into the extra session on a patience play just off the crease. “Their goalie stood on his head today, he made some amazing saves on a couple of us. At the end I just held on a little longer and just waited until he dropped down and put it in,” said Leclaire, who was acquired by New West in a trade two months ago. The 19 year old has played three games for New West, making the adjustment to a new team and new linemates with steady progress. He scored twice Tuesday and now has seven over three games. Carter Dickson led the attack with four goals and two helpers, while Will Malcolm registered a hat trick. It was a virtual shooting gallery during the first 40 minutes, with the clubs trading goals and rolls. After Delta erased a three-goal deficit to tie it up 6-6, the two squads began a one-for-one run that hit a bump when New West started the third period with markers from Erik Maas and Dickson. At that point, both squads tightened up the free-range flow that had prevailed over the first two periods, with shooters getting few fast breaks and less real estate near the high slot.The ’Bellies backline, anchored by Dalton Lupul, Jake Stott and Ryan Wilkinson, put up a deflector shield-like wall that held the Islanders at bay; at the other end, New West was getting the same kind of rejection in the Islanders zone. Yet, New West goalie Erik Kratz and Delta’s Harris kept busy, piling up the saves and cooling the offensive tsunami to a minor hurricane. Tallies by Jake Canton and Haiden Dickson, the latter with Delta’s goalie on the bench and just three seconds left in the game, forced overtime, leading to Leclaire’s game winner. “(Harris) I’ve got to say, he played a damn good game,” noted New West coach Rich Catton. “He made some saves he had Continued on page 44

editorial@newwestrecord.ca

A year-old initiative by United Rugby Club to foster the next generation of top players is already paying dividends. On May 7, the club’s Academy squad won the Under-23 provincial championship by defeating Capilano 64-5 at Rotary Stadium in Abbotsford. The team’s head coach, Andy Evans, said the result was more than he expected from the Hume Park-based program that only launched last May. “This was definitely our first big success,” Evans said. And likely not its last, if its take-up by top players who’ve graduated out of high school teams but who continue to want to develop their game is any indication.The team, which draws its talent from New Westminster and the Tri-Cities, is also capturing the attention of officials from B.C. Rugby and Rugby Canada. In fact, Evans said, the talent identification and development manager for the national rugby program, Kenny Goodland, took an early ferry from Victoria so he could catch last week’s championship match.

Getting the attention of those kinds of eyeballs is the whole point of the academy program, Evans said. A former strength and conditioning coach for Rugby Canada, Evans devised United’s Academy program as a way to bridge the need for top-level development of young rugby players graduating out of junior and high school programs but not yet physically ready to play at the senior men’s level. He said attracting the first cohort of players to the program took a lot of relationship building with local high school coaches to identify talented players with the desire to take their game to the next level. Among the first to sign up was New Westminster’s Scott Bowers, a 19-year-old student at Simon Fraser University. Slotted in as hooker, Bowers played an instrumental role in helping ground the program in its inaugural season. “He’s our captain, and (Bowers) exemplifies the model of who we want to build the program around,” said Evans. “He works hard, he makes the most of every moment and he practises hard.” Evans said finding the right

leader to help connect coach and program with the players is very important. “Today’s youth, you definitely have to chase them down,” he said. Sweetening the allure by helping some of them secure jobs that mesh well with their rugby commitments won some

They had a great attitude towards the work they were putting in.

players, Evans said.The prospect of better opportunities to play at the post-secondary, provincial and even national levels lured others. Evans said the wealth of sports available to young people in the Lower Mainland makes it a fertile ground for breeding potential top rugby players. “We have all kinds of athletic talent,” Evans said. “The cross-sports recipe of hockey, lacrosse, soccer and wrestling is a great recipe for success that produces a lot of tough ath-

letes.” But brawn is only half the battle. Players also need the assurance of a positive culture that can foster the development of their capabilities on and off the pitch. “You really have to care for these athletes,” Evans said. “It’s a ton of effort, lots of hours.” Evans said while it took the team some time to build momentum from its hodge-podge schedule of training, B.C. Rugby Union league matches and exhibition tests against touring and national teams, the formula for success started mixing properly about a month ago. “They were buying into training, they were competing, they had a great attitude towards the work they were putting in,” Evans said. If they can maintain that momentum, there’s no telling how far they’ll be able to take their talents, from improving the prospects of United’s senior club teams to taking the pitch wearing the red and white of Canada’s national team. “We anticipate the quality of rugby will improve,” Evans said. – with a file from Dan Olson

New West gets one final chance for B.C. berth

Hyacks faceWestVan in must-win game today Dan Olson

dolson@newwestrecord.ca

Go long: The B.C. Lions’ Travis Lulay and Cody Husband were front and centre at Sunday’s Hyacks football camp at Mercer Stadium. The camp attracted more than 50 kids to experience football and fun with the two Lions and members of the provincial champion New West Hyacks football team. PHOTO JENNIFER GAUTHIER

’Bellies beat Delta in overtime

Continued from page 43 no business making. He played fantastic but we kept on him though, we were persistent and kept getting our looks and we got a couple in the end.”

It followed New West’s 1310 win over Nanaimo, where Dickson racked up four goals and three assists, and Leclaire knotted a hat trick. The ’Bellies own a 4-0 record and head to PoCo

to play the Saints on Friday. Their next home test comes against the defending B.C. champion Coquitlam Adanacs on Tuesday, 8 p.m. at Queen’s Park Arena.

It’s last chance time. The New Westminster senior girls Hyacks soccer team enters today’s (Thursday) playdown with the West Vancouver Highlanders battling for a single berth to the B.C. 3-A provincial championships, which will be played at UBC in two weeks. The Hyacks saw their first chance at a B.C. berth slip away Monday in a 3-0 loss to the No. 1-ranked Argyle Pipers. “Argyle held territorial advantage through most of the first half but we were unable to get shots on goal as (we) defended well,” wrote New West coach Wayne McCarthy in an email. “(Our) keeper Alia Homenuke made a couple of easy saves from long distance but was unable to thwart the Pipers’ top striker as (she) took a pass between the centre backs and fired a low shot into the net (17 minutes into the contest).” Down 1-0 at halftime, New West opened it up to generate offence and saw standout Grade 11 forward Nisa Reehal create three excellent chances in

the first five minutes, only to be turned back. Argyle doubled its lead a few minutes later off a two-on-one break, and iced it with another tally at the 65-minute mark. Although West Van presents a formidable challenge, rival Burnaby-New West coach Deb Peters, whose team was eliminated by the Highlanders on Monday in a 5-0 loss, feels New West has a good chance to advance. “I think (New West) will measure up well with them,” Peters said. “It’ll be a good game. (New West) is pretty consistent across the board in terms of skills.” Today’s game will be played 3 p.m. at Mercer Stadium. A week ago, the Hyacks avenged a regular season loss by capturing the league banner with a 3-0 blanking of Burnaby North in the final. Georgia Brydon converted a nice setup from Sydney Fowler late in the first half to give New West the lead. Buoyed by strong performances from defenders Emma Celle, Sarah Forgie and Maddison and Sydney Fowler, the Hyacks continued to push forward and added markers by Taylor Spong and Reehal to complete the win.

participate in the 23rd Annual Pot of Gold Charity Golf Tournament on July 17th at Mayfair Lakes Golf Club. Over the past 22 years, this event has raised almost $500,000 for local charities. Over $33,000 was raised from last year’s tournament alone.The Rotary Clubs’ principal focus has been on funding programs for youth in New Westminster, and we will continue to promote them. Again this year, the two local Rotary Clubs will also donate a portion of the net proceeds to Salvation Army (New Westminster) and the Lower Mainland Purpose Society (an alternate education facility) to further their valuable work with youth facing their own challenges in the community. We believe we need to invest in our youth, since they are our future. Past tournaments have been sold out. We hope to repeat that success this year.

We invite you to participate in the tournament as a sponsor, donor or golfer...or, ideally, all three and join us in a day of golf and camaraderie and support our work in your community at the same time. See our website at www.rotarypotofgoldgolf.com for more information and forms. Help us get over the half million dollar mark! If you have any questions, please contact Rick Molstad at 604.831.1821 or molstad.rick@gmail.com and we would be pleased to answer your enquiries. Hoping to see you on July 17th.

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.
