Five pot stores to start Theresa McManus email@example.com
New Westminster could eventually be home to a dozen cannabis stores, but will start small and allow just five in the first year. When the production, distribution, sale and possession of nonmedical cannabis becomes legal in Canada on Oct. 17, Canadian adults will be able to buy nonmedical cannabis legally from authorized retailers. “What staff have recommended is a relatively gradual phasing in of the cannabis retail locations,” said planner Mike Watson. “We have recommended initially limiting the intake to approximately 50 per cent of the anticipated number of cannabis stores. We would consider up to five cannabis locations in commercial areas across the city.” The city will initially consider one store in each of the core commercial areas of downtown, uptown and Sapperton, as well as two locations distributed among the remaining commercial areas of 12th Street, 20th Street, Queensborough and Eighth Avenue/McBride Boulevard. Based on the number of liquor stores in New West, the city belives there could eventually be about 11 cannabis stores in the city. “We don’t know what the demand is going to be.We have certainly had a lot of interest from a lot of different people in terms of looking at locations,”Watson said. “We do anticipate we are going to see some interested applicants.” The city has been developing a cannabis regulatory framework that addresses several issues, such as land-use requirements for pot shops.

Upfront man BIAs team up to get kids playing Local goes missing IN BRIEF
Two business improvement associations have adopted playboxes across NewWestminster
The city’s four playboxes are getting a helping hand this summer thanks to New Westminster’s business community. The Uptown Business Association and the Downtown Business Improvement Area have teamed up and adopted playboxes across New Westminster. The associations will take care of the boxes and keep them stocked with toys and sports equipment until the end of September, according to Erin Jeffrey of the Uptown Business Association. “A great thing that businesses can do is they can actually help the community in a variety of ways, and one way is financially. And the Uptown Business Association, we have a box here in our area and downtown has a box in their area, and so that was a perfect fit,” Jeffery told the Record. Kendra Johnston, executive director of the Downtown New Westminster BIA, agreed. “It was an easy ‘yes,’” she said of the decision to sponsor the boxes in partnership with the Uptown association. The four Live 5-2-1-0 playboxes are part of partnership between City of New Westminster, the New Westminster school district, Fraser Health, Royal Co-
PLAYING AROUND: From left, Erin Jeffrey of the Uptown Business Association, with Downtown New Westminster Business Improvement Area programs and events manager Angie Whitfield and executive director Kendra Johnston. PHOTO CAYLEY DOBIE lumbian Hospital Foundation and SCOPE B.C. The four boxes were installed in May at Grimston Park, Hume Park, Moody Park and École Qayqayt Elementary School. They came full of toys and sports equipment, but less than a week after they arrived all the boxes turned up empty.
The intent of the boxes is to get the community to take ownership of them and have residents keep them stocked, according to City of New Westminster recreation programmer Sloane Elphinstone. “We’re always trying to find ways to benefit community, and when this story broke it was obvious that
the business community can help,” Johnston said. Throughout the summer, the business associations will keep the boxes stocked with basketballs, soccer balls, flying discs, jump ropes, hula hoops and other outdoor equipment. The hope is that, come the end of September, the associations will have inspired
another group to take over sponsorship of the boxes, Jeffrey said. “The idea is that this is our community and we want to make sure everybody can play. And if you can help, which we can do, then do it. It’s simple. It’s not a lot of money, it’s not a lot of time,” she added.
City gives greenlight to teen recovery program Theresa McManus firstname.lastname@example.org
A new recovery program for teenage girls continues the city’s legacy of being a community that cares. Westminster House applied to the city for a temporary use permit for 620 Third Ave., which would allow it to offer a residential recovery program for up to four young women aged 16 to 18.Westminster House already operates a residential centre in the Brow of the Hill neighbourhood that provides a continuum of care for adult women who are recovering from addiction. “There is currently no service for youth girls in the Fraser Health Authority.There is a proposed, and I believe a plan, to do a 20-
bed facility in Chilliwack, but that’s about two years down the road. Right now, we hear from families pretty much daily who are in need of some type of service for their child,” said Susan Hogarth, executive director of Westminster House. “We are just hoping the city will allow us a temporary use permit to do a pilot project to house these girls and provide treatment to them. If we are successful then we will go on to a permanent application.” City council unanimously approved the temporary use permit Monday night, after hearing from several supporters of the project, including Crystal Coughlin, a maintenance superintendent at Westminster House, who has been working on the project.

“I didn’t get into Westminster House until I was in my 30s. I currently have almost four years clean thanks to Westminster House. I was struggling when I was 16 and 17 years old. My mom was told that there was no
place that would take me,” she said. “It means something to me, this project.” Along with a letter from the Brow of the Hill Residents’ Association, which unanimously supported the facility, the city received let-
ters of support from other area residents. Carmen Della-Vanchenza, who lives near the proposed facility, told council it’s sad that in a time when society is trying to boost up the positon of women, there’s a place in New West for young men to get treatment but nothing for young women.With New Westminster being a “recovery capital” that’s known worldwide for its programs, the father of four girls said it’s the perfect place for a program where young women can go to better their lives. “We are known as a city that helps people,” DellaVanchenza said. “I take a lot of pride in that.” Westminster House anticipates its first clients will arrive on Aug. 1.
New Westminster Police are asking for help locating a missing 75-year-old man who was last seen near Royal Columbian Hospital. Leonard MacGillivray disappeared around 9 a.m. on July 4, according to a press release from New Westminster Police. Missing: He Leonard MacGillivray has a slim build with grey hair and a moustache. Police say he was last seen wearing a bright green jersey-style Tshirt with the number 12 written on the front, lightcoloured pants and black shoes. Investigators believe MacGillivray may be in Burnaby. New Westminster Police are asking anyone who sees MacGillivray to call 911.
Council to hold hearing on pot plans Continued from page 1 Council is expected to consider first and second readings of the cannabis bylaws on Aug. 27 and to hold a public hearing on Sept. 17. It remains to be seen how soon cannabis shops could open in New West. Watson said staff anticipate launching the proposed month-long application process for initial applicants soon after council considers the cannabisrelated bylaws. He said the typical process for liquor licensed premises is four to six months. “It also depends on how many applications we get,” said Jackie Teed, the city’s acting director of development services. “Staff is certainly already working at maximum capacity with development applications, and it would be the same staff who are working on this, in addition to the business licensing staff. Depending on the model that we go with … it could take significantly longer than six months to get them all through.”

Council endorses traffic plan for Sapperton Theresa McManus
Getting through Sapperton can be a nightmare some days, but the city hopes a new plan will lead to improvements. New Westminster city council recently endorsed the 322-page Sapperton/ Massey-Victory Heights transportation plan, which aims to enhance different modes of transportation throughout the area and provide better travel choices and improvements in the years ahead. Now that the plan has been endorsed by council, the city plans to get to work on a number of short-term improvement such as traffic calming measures like speed humps in lower, central and upper Sapperton and signage and line-marking modifications throughout the study area “I do appreciate how the plan is laid out,” said Mayor Jonathan Cote. “It is upfront that there is no magic bullet solution that is going to eliminate traffic congestion in different areas and that there are go-
ing to be challenges, but there are pragmatic and methodical steps that the city can take to manage it and make sure we are continuing to improve neighbourhood livability in the Sapperton neighbourhood but still making a transportation system that works. I think that’s the balance that has attempted to be found through this plan and through the discussions with the community.” The plan, which has attempted to focus on neighbourhood safety and livability, considers the impact of developments such as Sapperton Green, 100 Braid St., the Royal Columbian Hospital expansion, the new aquatics and community centre project, the Pattullo Bridge replacement project and other development and road projects in the city. “The Sapperton/Massey Victory Heights Transportation Plan aims to enhance the multimodal transportation system to provide mode choices, while enhancing the safety and livability of the neighbourhoods by managing the volume
Staff will be requesting funding for implementation of components of the plan in the city’s 2019 to 2023 financial plan. Implementation of some recommendations in the plan may not occur for a few years, unless triggered by a specific development, but the plan will provide staff with strategic direction for all future neighbourhood improvements. Coun. Patrick Johnstone supported the plan as it provides a lot of things for the city to tackle in the shortterm that can’t wait, but thinks some aspects of the document will evolve over time. He feels that providing an access to Royal Columbian Hospital via Brunette Avenue is “fundamental” to the livability of East Columbia Street and that Fraser Health has “a lot of work to do” on moving its employees and patients away from relying on single-occupancy vehicles. To view the transportation plan, go to www.new westcity.ca and search for Sapperton Massey-Victory Heights transportation plan.

and speed of traffic using the local roads,” said a staff report. “The plan identifies measures that improve existing transit, walking and cycling routes, and identifies new routes to better connect across the community. Improvements to key intersections are identified, along with traffic-calming measures to limit short-cut-
ting through the residential neighbourhoods and keep the right traffic on the right roads.” The plan tackles a number of themes: traffic volumes, speeds and cutthrough traffic; transit scheduling and accessibility; walking and cycling safety and connectivity; on-street parking management; and
enforcement. Recommendations in the plan will be implemented in the shortterm (one to two years), medium-term (three to five years) and long-term (more than five years from now). “It is a living document,” said Coun. Jaimie McEvoy. “Things will be tweaked and figured out as we go along.”

Burnaby group to fund programs in New West BASES makes first donation for after-school programs Cayley Dobie
A Burnaby not-for-profit has donated $10,000 to the New Westminster school district to support after-school programs – and that’s only the beginning. The Burnaby Association for South East Side, which runs the BASES family thrift store on Edmonds Street, plans to donate a portion of its earnings to after-school programs in New Westminster moving forward. The not-for-profit was founded in 2011 as a way to raise money for kids in the southeast area of Burnaby, an area that has a larger population of low-income families. In 2013, the group opened a thrift store on Kingsway (it has since moved to Edmonds Street)
to raise funds. “We started it to raise money,” said Sharon Domaas, one of the founders of BASES and a New Westminster resident. Last year, the group gave $150,000 to six schools in

Burnaby to help run programs for kids outside of school hours.This includes everything from after-school bike classes to gardening
clubs. It’s up to the schools to decide how they want to spend the money they receive, Domaas added. Recently, the group, which includes some New Westminster residents like Domaas, approached the New Westminster school district to see if it could help some of its schools. The district agreed, and last month BASES donated $10,000 to the school district as part of a pilot program. “Just because 10th Avenue is there doesn’t mean the demographic is any different,” Domaas said. The money gifted to the district will be used to support after-school programs at Ecole Qayqayt and Lord Kelvin elementary schools, including Rec and Read, running this month at Qayqayt.

Opinion OUR VIEW
Transit should be a safe place for everyone
When you take transit in the coming months, you’ll see a consistent message on SkyTrain and buses. The message is about stopping sexual offending, particularly on transit. Being a woman on transit can be an ugly experience. Men taking liberties with their hands as they squeeze by on a crowded SkyTrain car and feigning that it’s an accident. Drunk dudes harassing women at bus stops and SkyTrain stations because they think they’re
“charming.” Or flat-out sexual assaults involving unwanted touching. It’s got to stop. To do this, the Transit Police have launched a new campaign to create an “unwelcome environment” for anyone committing these vile acts. The messaging will be spread through 340 ad spaces allocated on SkyTrain cars, 15 ads at SkyTrain stations in addition to LCD screens, 300 ads on buses and 15 bus loop
ads, including at Lougheed and Edmonds exchanges in Burnaby. An additional 35 platform posters will be placed at SkyTrain stations in mid-July and a partnership with Metro Vancouver Crime Stoppers will provide advertising support across Metro Vancouver, throughout the summer. The campaign has been developed in consultation with such groups as Battered Women’s Support Services to come up with the kind of messaging that
people will remember. The fact that we need an ad campaign to tell men not to sexually harass and assault others is a pathetic commentary on our society, but here we are. So pay attention. If you know someone who thinks this disgusting behaviour is OK, then confront them. If you see this activity taking place on transit, text 87-77-77 and report it. Get involved. Be part of the solution.
HERO WORSHIP We would be remiss if we didn’t take a moment to recognize two very different heroes. The first is nine-year-old Tony Leong, who has been honoured for his bravery and quick-thinking in pulling a kindergartner safely from the path of an oncoming car on May 31. The second is Bosco, a police dog who risked life and paws to capture a serial bank robber during a takedown in Burnaby.
The robber was known to carry guns and even grenades to commit his crimes. Thankfully, Bosco was able to put the bite on him before he could hurt anyone. The images of heroes are usually associated with Marvel movies – people with superpowers. The reality is, heroes are ordinary people – and animals – who find a way to step up when life demands it. We applaud them both.
MY VIEW KEITH BALDREY
Pro-PR should keep it simple The campaign on whether or not to change B.C.’s voting system is officially underway, but it looks like a tricky race to handicap. The vast majority of the public simply does not spend a lot of time thinking about voting systems. It is a safe bet that not many backyard barbecues will feature spirited debates over the merits of “rural urban PR” versus “dual member proportional.” Perhaps by the time the referendum mail-in period rolls around (Oct. 22 to Nov. 1) people will become more engaged in the subject. This lack of interest may provide the side that opposes switching to proportional representation a bit of an edge over PR proponents. That is because everyone is familiar with the current first-past-the-post system, and knows its strengths and its shortcomings. The challenge for the pro-PR side is to present evidence that another system (the three options on the ballot are quite different from the status quo) is better. This is where things can get tricky for the pro-PR side.The proposed models are not easily explained or grasped (two of them have never actually been used) and it will be an uphill task getting people interested in the topic and then diving in to actually study the options. Still, the “yes” side will have $500,000 of your tax money to spend on wooing and educating the public and that will definitely have
some impact. Of course, the “no” side will have the same budget provided for them, so get ready for some spirited ad wars. The victor in this campaign will be the side that offers the most direct and effective message, and that convinces enough people to actually take the time and mail in a ballot. Look for the pro-PR side to argue their systems are “fairer” because any seat count will more accurately reflect the outcome of the actual popular vote.That is a simple concept. However, if this side clutters things up with a detailed breakdown of how each system will operate, I think its messaging will be in trouble. Any political party will tell you that the simpler the message, the simpler it is to sell it.The need for this simplicity will likely favour the anti-PR side. The “no” side will brand PR as confusing and even dangerous, arguing it could allow fringe parties to hold the keys to power. That is a straightforward message.The anti-PR side has to be careful not to overdo it when it comes to castigating PR systems, or going too far in insisting the status quo FPTP system is so much better than any alternative. In any event, $1 million of your tax dollars are about to be spent on this campaign.You might as well read up on it. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global BC.

Sgt. Smoky misses her bro Sgt. Smoky was desolate in October after her brother, Cpl. David, was kidnapped on Front Street.The two felines lived at West Lynn Military Surplus.The corporal, sporting a military ID tag with his name and phone number around his neck, had been sauntering along the Front Street sidewalk, when two young women just scooped him up and carried him away, according to owner Wes Baker. Baker and his wife searched the entire downtown and Quay area for Cpl. Dave for days to no avail. Sgt. Smoky, meanwhile, was lost without her brother. “She has been walking around the store crying and whining, wondering where he is,” Baker said.

Ban plastic straws Editor: Banning all plastic straws and plastic of all kinds would be the best support of the environment. Persons with disabilities/AB have options of paper straws, metal straws, and glass straws. As a woman with a physical disability, I thought it was odd to read Our View: Banning straws hurts people with disabilities, June 28, the Record. Plastic straws or all plastic material really needs to end. (It’s) critical for single-use plastic straws, cups, and utensils, bags usage in our community to stop. Although I understand the intended support of people with disabilities, I think most people including those with disabilities recognize the need to make good choices for the planet with a return back to paper straws or check out some new alternatives to purchase such as glass or metal straws. Enough is enough, so I have switched to glass straws made in Canada. Both glass and metal straws are available in a bent shape, or straight in various lengths. I carry my glass straws with me if I’m going out and found it an easy switch. There are even fabric holders to purchase at a minimal cost for a lifetime straw that makes it convenient for storage or carrying along. I think people with disabilities are equal in terms of caring about the environment. Lastly, I think glass straws would make a great gift so that all people could feel a part of the solution. If I happen to forget a straw, I have been delighted to see restaurants using recyclable straws made out of corn, paper straws or I order a small class so it’s easier to lift without a straw. I support a ban on all plastic, including straws for New Westminster. I’m offering my help to anyone
in New West that needs some suggestions of how to get glass or metal straws for their personal use. Please text email@example.com Barbara Yost, New Westminster
Blame the school
Editor: It was a pleasure to read in your July 5 edition (New Westminster Bylaw Officer wins B.C. Award) that New Westminster bylaw officer John Doebert was named Bylaw Officer of the Year and that he will be recognized by New Westminster City Council for his service. Over the years, I’ve witnessed friendly service from him and he is a great ambassador for the city. I commend him for making New Westminster proud of its employees. This article, however, brings to light the conduct of (school district) employees. How is it possible for a kindergarten student to leave a school? This story inadvertently puts the blame on the child (“instead of going to the office so they could contact her mom, she headed home.”). Any miscommunication with a five-year-old is the fault of the school. What are the protocols in this situation, and why were they not followed? Aren’t there only one set of entry and exit doors at an elementary school and aren’t those doors monitored? How is it that the teacher, the secretary or the principal had no idea a five-year-old left the school? This story does not inspire confidence in the city’s school administration. New Westminster (school district) has an obligation to ensure all children are safe during school hours and it’s clear this school’s administration let down this child and her family. E. Hughes, New Westminster

Work will extend as far west as Pensioners Hall on Keary Street (north lane and north parking lane) and as far south as Browns Socialhouse (east parking lane and sidewalk, and northbound bike lane). Expect traffic delays and sidewalk disruptions. Construction hours are 7am-7pm Mon. to Fri. (except holidays) and Saturdays 9am-6pm. Bird Construction will endeavour to minimize the construction’s impact, noise, dust, and disruption to neighbours in accordance with the City’s regulations and Good Neighbour Protocol.

Outdoor movie series switching venues
Summer nights are the perfect time to watch a movie outdoors – just not in Queen’s Park this year. The Outdoor Summer Movie Nights series is moving from the stadium to four parks throughout the city. Instead of eight movies, there will be four. “What we wanted to do was bring the movie in the park to all the communities across New West, and we’re using this as a pilot year to accomplish that,” said Steve
Kellock, senior manager of New Westminster recreation services and facilities. The reason for the change was that the event wasn’t as popular as it had once been, he explained.The response to the pilot will help determine if the program expands. The best way for people to have their say about the future of summer night movies in the city is by filling out the survey provided by the city, according to
Kellock. As for what movies are shown, the city uses social media to post an online poll of about 15 choices. So far, the response from the community regarding the changes has been fairly positive, Kellock said. “People are saying thank you for bringing movies to their community,” he added. The first movie is Space Jam, showing in Westminster Pier Park on Friday at

Thrifty crawl brings thrift stores together Theresa McManus
Shoppers will be able to find deals and help some great causes at this weekend’s first New West/Burnaby Thrift Store Crawl. Isabel Barros, administrative coordinator at BASES Family Thrift Store, has spearheaded a thrift store crawl that runs from Friday, July 13 to Sunday, July 15. “The whole plan for the crawl is twofold. It’s obviously to promote the stores and build clientele, but my other point in doing this is just to inform the community of the causes that we all support,” she said. “Most people when they donate probably think part of it is a profit.” That’s not the case with the five thrift stores participating in this weekend’s event, as they’re raising funds for a variety of programs in New West and Burnaby. “As passionate as I am about BASES, everyone is as passionate about their cause. In speaking to everyone and how they support, I just want to elevate everyone’s profile,” Barros said. “Maybe when people think of donating items or shopping at a thrift store, they might consider us before the bigger guy.” Participants in this weekend’s thrift store crawl include: ! Burnaby Hospice Society Thrift Store – 6843 Kingsway, Burnaby.This non-profit society provides services to individuals and families going through the endof-life journey. ! Kerry’s Thrift Boutique – 480 East Columbia St., New Westminster.This charity thrift shop helps the Camp Kerry Society provide support to individuals and families from across B.C. who are impacted by serious illness, grief and loss. ! New To You – 416 East Columbia St., New Westminster. Operated by volunteers with the Royal Columbian Hospital Auxiliary, New toYou raises funds to buy hospital equipment that’s not included in Fraser Health’s budget. ! St. Barnabas Thrift Store – 1010 Fifth Ave., New Westminster.This shop raises funds for a variety of the church’s community outreach programs, including a community lunch every Thursday, a Christ-

mas dinner and kids’ summer camps. ! BASES Family Thrift Store – 7825 Edmonds St., Burnaby. It raises money for programs that help children, youth and families, such as breakfast programs, homework clubs, sports, cultural programs and community kitchens. BASES opened in Burnaby in 2013 and is looking to expand its reach to New Westminster. “We support in southeast Burnaby the five elementary schools and the high school. Last year we raised $84,000 which was awe-
some.We don’t make any money, the directors don’t get paid. All of it went to schools,” Barros said. “Because we have done well, we are in the process of talking with the New West school board to see what schools are most in need.We are looking at supporting a couple schools there.” While BASES is leading the initiative, Barros said the idea is to highlight some of the causes supported by the five participating thrift stores. She said a number of other non-profit thrift stores didn’t want to participate in the thrift store crawl for various
reasons. Along with providing a place where people can find deals on household and clothing items, the shops also welcome donations that allow them to continue raising funds to support various community needs. “Every one of these organizations is not only contributing to their community, but to the deeper needs of the community,” Barros said. “That to me is important for your neighbours to know so it’s supported.”
City planners earn accolades for achievements Theresa McManus
The planning department came home with a lot of hardware from a recent conference in Victoria. Each year, the Planning Institute of British Columbia recognizes the professional work and individual accomplishments of members across B.C. and theYukon.The City of New Westminster picked up a couple of awards at the institute’s recent annual conference in Victoria. ! Silver Winner in the Excellence in Planning Practice – City and Urban Areas for its New Westminster infill housing pro-
gram, which included work to implement laneway and carriage houses, and infill townhouses and rowhouses.Winners in this category highlight the inventive ways that planners are creating transformative change through ground-breaking actions. ! Silver Winner in the Excellence in Policy Planning – City and Urban Areas – for the city’s new official community plan. Winners in this category demonstrate effective initiatives and solutions that enhance the social, economic, environmental and cultural wellbeing of communities. “The OCP and infill housing process was a huge
success for us as our community members said they felt heard,” said Jackie Teed, acting director of development services. “That’s the greatest reward, but we’re very proud of being recognized by PIBC as well.” The Planning Institute of British Columbia also recognized the achievements of Beverly Grieve, who recently retired as the city’s director of development services. She received the Individual Achievement – Leadership in Advocacy and Innovation, which recognizes a planner who demonstrates outstanding leadership, tenacity and advocacy on planning issues in their community, provincially, or
more broadly. “Bev Grieve was recognized for her extensive career that has made a significant impact to planning policy and practice,” said Lisa Spitale, the city’s chief administrative officer. “Her dedication to housing issues echoes through some of the most innovative housing planning that is happening across Metro Vancouver today.” Spitale said the city’s secured market rental housing policy was a “momentous achievement” in Grieve’s career and has resulted in more than 1,200 new rental units in New Westminster. She said Grieve also spearheaded affordable hous-
ing projects during her time with the city. “In all the years I have been a planner, you dream of this award,” Spitale said. “Quite frankly, our Beverly Grieve exemplifies this award.This one is a tremendous honour to recognize.” Grieve worked in a number of cities, including New Westminster, Burnaby, North Vancouver and Maple Ridge, as well as Metro Vancouver Regional District, during her career. “I think this work really reflects the work of all the people that I have worked with and collaborated with in planning and in every department here throughout the years, and the incredible
work of dedicated councils I have worked with. It’s been a true honour,” she said. “This is a fantastic way to go out into retirement.” Along with the planning awards, the city recently received an award from the B.C. Economic Development Association.The City of New Westminster received the 2018 Stan Rogers Memorial Award, which is given to a project that’s made an exceptional impact on the local economy, for its Front Street Mews. “This was at times a challenging project, but incredibly rewarding,” Spitale said. “I’d like to acknowledge the city staff for their hard work on the Front Street Mews.”

Community Should we punish parents who don’t vaccinate kids? GROUNDED Bianca Bujan
From broken limbs to spiked fevers to random objects stuck up noses – with three kids in my household, visits to the doctor’s office have definitely become a regular occurrence. When something goes awry with my children, I don’t put my trust in “Dr. Google” or try to remedy the issue myself, I go straight to the source that I trust the most – my own family physician. When I’ve received reminder calls, notifying me that it’s time to vaccinate one of my children, I’ve willingly booked the appointment. Sure, I’ve asked questions, and have expressed concerns about the ever-evolving immunization schedules over the past 11 years that I’ve been a parent, but my doctor has always answered honestly, doing her best to explain the reasons behind the changes, and the purpose of each series of shots. Perhaps it’s the result of my trusting relationship with my own health-care professional, but I’ve never fully understood why some parents have been so hesitant, or completely against the vaccination process. Last year, Health Canada conducted a nationwide survey titled “Survey for the Development of the Childhood Vaccination Campaign,” hoping to uncover the current state of awareness, knowledge, attitudes, belief, and behaviours of parents and expectant parents with respect to childhood vaccinations.
While the survey found that only five per cent of Canadian parents had “low trust” when it came to vaccinations, the number spiked to 13 per cent for parents in B.C. Concerned parents who participated in the survey cited several reasons for their hesitancy, including possible allergic reactions, a lack of trust in the pharmaceutical system, side effects, toxic ingredients, and a lack of testing on the vaccinations.
More needs to be done to persuade parents.
While Canadian parents have been left to decide whether or not to vaccinate their children, other countries have implemented strict measures against parents who refuse to immunize their kids. In a news release shared by the Australian government on July 1, tougher “No jab, no pay” rules have officially been enforced, emphasizing the message that “immunization is the safest way to protect children from vaccine-preventable diseases,” and that “parents who don’t immunize their children are putting their own kids at risk as well as the children of other people.” To penalize those parents who choose not to vaccinate, a loss in family support payments will occur, equalling the sum of $28 a fortnight for each child who does not meet immu-
nization requirements.The thought behind this change, is that this altered “No jab, no pay” rule will act as a constant reminder to parents to keep their child’s immunization records up to date, or they will literally pay for their decision. And Australia isn’t the only region to call the shots when it comes to whether or not to vaccinate kids. Italy and France have made several vaccinations mandatory, and some U.S. states require that students have up-to-date vaccinations before school enrolment, limiting exemptions to those who are unable to vaccinate due to medical or religious reasons. While Ontario and New Brunswick also require vaccination records upon registration for school, there are currently no official country-wide rules in place here in Canada. If the health reports and urging of medical professionals don’t persuade parents to give vaccinations a shot, I doubt a minimal decrease in family funding will do the trick, but a change is definitely needed. I don’t think penalties are the answer, but more needs to be done to persuade parents to get on board. More testing, as well as increased education and awareness on the issues surrounding childhood immunizations – emphasizing not only the benefits, but the impact that the decision not to vaccinate has on the children of others, is definitely needed if we want to secure a healthier future for our kids.

Your Hearing Loss aﬀects the ones you love.
More words start with the letter ‘S’ than any other letter. But if you have a hearing loss it can feel as though those words have been removed from your hearing dictionary. You have probably also lost the ability to hear the letters; ‘F-P-K & T’. With untreated hearing loss, you won’t be hearing those words either. Hearing aids from NexGen Hearing can put the words back and make hearing easier.

‘It ended up being a very powerful experience’
Explore the connection between nature and human nature in new exhibition at the Plaskett Gallery Janaya Fuller-Evans
After breaking her leg playing squash and being in a wheelchair,Victoria artist Trish Shwart found she saw the world a little differently. “Suddenly your whole world changes, and everything you see looks different through the filter of your new experience. I didn’t expect it to be life changing.
I didn’t want it to be life changing,” she said. “But it ended up being a very powerful experience.” As an artist, Shwart is inspired by the world around her, most recently, by the world she saw when travelling during the past year. One of the places she travelled to was Vancouver. “I spent three weeks in Vancouver this January, where it rained every day
and every night. I was going for quite long walks as part of the rehabilitation process still, and I would see this incredible beauty.The rain would create these patterns everywhere,” she said. One of the images she encountered became the basis for one of the pieces in her upcoming show at Plaskett Gallery, Dark Fence. “It was this black fence, but the rain made every-
thing look kind of oily and rainbowish,” she said. “And above it was this amazing pink tree. And this kind of stuff is everywhere, and it stops me all of the time.” Her paintings are not just about the visual subject, but what isn’t seen – the connection between nature and human nature as well. “I’m trying to show this invisible force that is around us and in us also. I think
something happens between us and the natural world, in the urban landscape as well,” she said. “It suffuses everything. I think it’s more present that we sometimes think.” Shwart’s show, Down the road from where were stayed…, is at the Plaskett Gallery until July 30. She will be holding informal artist’s talks on Saturday, July 14 and Saturday, July 21.
She’s interested in hearing from the audience regarding nature, as well “If anyone has their own stories about how they’ve been affected by nature or their nature has affected the world around them, I’d love to hear them,” she said.

Community ‘His legacy has made this beautiful experience possible’ Theresa McManus
Wally Komaryk’s legacy will live in a work of art in Holy Eucharist Cathedral. Komaryk, who started the church’s monthly perogy suppers more than two decades ago as a way of raising funds for the church, spent many hours working on the suppers until his death in 2015.With a career that required him to move frequently, Komaryk connected with the Ukrainian church in the cities where he lived. “That is the first thing he did whenever we were relocated to a new city – he zeroed in on where was the Ukrainian church,” said daughter Ashli Komaryk. “He actually grew up in an orphanage and was raised by nuns.The church for him really represented the fulcrum of family.That’s his foundation.That’s his emotional foundation.That’s his spiritual foundation.” When he no longer had to move around for work, Komaryk was able to put
down roots at the Holy Eucharist Church in New Westminster. After passing away in November 2015, he left some money to the church, but didn’t specify how it should be used. Father Mykhailo Ozorovych, who had transferred from Ukraine to New Westminster, had an idea on how to use the funds. Before moving to Canada, he’d discovered the Saint Cyprian Association of Iconographers, and suggested their art could adorn the unpainted dome at his new church. After getting approval from the bishop earlier this spring, Ozorovych made arrangements for the artists to visit Canada. Serhii Koloda, Oleksii Cherednichenko and Dmytro Vasylkiv recently visited New Westminster to paint the dome in the traditional style of Byzantine iconography. “It’s a very rare art form that we don’t see much here in North America at all, but in Ukraine, Macedonia, Greece, the Byzantine art is still alive and well,” Kom-

aryk said. Komaryk is overjoyed with the way the church chose to use her father’s gift – and for the opportunity it offered the three artists, as it was the first time they’d ever
travelled outside of Ukraine. “My heart is literally bursting with joy and emotion.They are warm, gentle people.You can tell they have good hearts. I thought, dad would really love them,
wouldn’t it be great if he could be here witnessing all of this? Then I thought, this is happening precisely because he’s not here with us,” Komaryk said. “I’m thrilled that dad will be able to have
his legacy continue in the church.” On June 16, community members met the artists from the Saint Cyprian Association of Iconographers, attended a panel discussion with the artists, toured the dome and tried their hand at painting a sample icon. Since Wally Komaryk’s death, the church has continued to offer its monthly perogy suppers, but that’s not the only way his contributions are being honoured. Hidden amid the Christ Pantocrator design is a little something special for Wally. “They are actually going to be painting a secret little tribute to him in the dome – it’s a perogy,” Komaryk said. “It’s a very serious theme and image – and then there’s going to be a little perogy on the side, just so that people know to look for it. It’s a very emotional project for me. I am so honoured. I feel like his memory is very alive. I feel him close when we are working on this project. I can see his legacy has made this beautiful experience possible.”

Community Rotary clubs team up to help New West youth Theresa McManus
New Westminster’s Rotary Clubs expect to top the half-a-million dollar mark at this year’s Pot of Gold Tournament. Now in its 23rd year, the golf tournament is organized by the two local Rotary clubs – the Royal City Rotary Club, which started the tournament in 1996, and the Rotary Club of New Westminster. “It’s a real milestone for us,” said Rick Molstad, who has chaired the tournament committee for 22 years. “We started out modestly and built it up over the years. Most years lately we have been making about $35,000 with the support of the businesses in the community and individuals.” This year’s Pot of Gold Tournament is on Tuesday, July 17 at the Mayfair Lakes Golf and Country Club in Richmond. “It’s a fun, social day.
People always enjoy it,” Molstad said. “It’s not a really competitive thing.There are some very good golfers there, but the emphasis is on golfing and socializing with your friends, rather than hitting a low score.”
It’s a fun, social day. People always enjoy it. Registration is $195 per golfer, which includes golf, a cart, lunch, a buffet dinner, prizes, chipping and putting contests and a photo booth with B.C. Lions Felions. The day also features four hole-in-one prizes of at least $25,000. Molstad said Rotary has supported health and welfare activities throughout the world, including efforts to eradicate polio worldwide, which have helped helping to reduce the num-
ber of polio cases from 350,000 in the 1980s to under 100,000 last year. Money raised at the Pot of Gold Tournament, however, stays closer to home and is directed to a variety of youth programs offered by the Salvation Army in New Westminster, the Lower Mainland Purpose Society forYouth and Families and Rotary. Rotary clubs offer a variety of adventure, vocational and citizenship programs for youth, and support a hot lunch program at New Westminster Secondary School. “The youth programs, I find to be the most rewarding for me because the youth are our future,” Molstad said. “We need to invest in them to make sure they can make the right decisions in life.” For details on how to participate in the Pot of Gold tournament as a sponsor, donor or golfer visit www. rotarypotofgoldgolf.com.

Youth recovery program gets helping hand Theresa McManus AROUND TOWN
Westminster House is a step closer to helping young women embarking on a path to recovery. Patrick Robinson from Hockey Helps the Homeless recently dropped by Westminster House to present it with a $39,000 donation toward its new youth program. Hockey Helps the Homeless uses Canada’s affinity for hockey to raise awareness and financial support for the homeless through education and fundraising, and by partnering with solutions-based local homeless support agencies. Westminster House has received city approval for a temporary use permit for 620 Third Ave., which allows it to offer a residential recovery program for up to four young women aged 16 to 18. “With the support of the donors such as Patrick and Hockey Helps the Homeless, and our community who believes in the work we do,Westminster House will deliver this service and change the lives of our youth, changing the future.When youth are at risk, our future is at risk,” Susan Hogarth, executive director of Westminster House, said in an email to the Record. “Between January and December 2016, there were 922 illicit drug overdose deaths in B.C. – 12 of these deaths occurred in individuals aged 10 to 19.” KEEP THE KIDS BUSY The kids have been freed
from school for summer break. Now what? A couple of local groups have alerted us to camps they’re offering to kids this summer that you may want to check out. Fraser River Discovery Centre has a number of camps this summer: Hands On History runs July 16 to 20 for kids aged five to eight; X-Treme S.T.E.A.M. is July 23 to 27 for nine- to 11-year-olds.; Arts Unleased runs Aug. 13 to 17 for five to eight year olds; and Creators Unite is Aug. 20 to 24 for nine- to 11-year-olds. Camps run Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 pm., but people can book the full week ($149 or $135 for Fraser River Discovery Centre members) or $35 per day (or $30 for members). Info: 604-521-8401 or fraserriverdiscovery.org. Local Presbyterian churches are offering day camps for children aged five to 12, with the theme being how to overcome the bully – Joseph and his Dream Coat. Camp 2 is July 23 to 27 at St. Aidan’s Presbyterian Church, 1320 Seventh Ave.; and Camp 3 is Aug. 13 to 17 at Gordon Presbyterian Church, 7457 Edmonds Ave. All camps run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.The cost is $100 per child, or two camps for $175, but bursaries are available. (Camp 1 ran this week.) Info and registration: Marion at 604524-9056.
The mini-float, designed by local artist and Hyack director Theresa HenrySmith, won the Queen’s Award for Best Decorated in the parade’s mini float category. It features the Pacific Dogwood and used all organic materials (a mandatory requirement of the parade) including birch bark, chrysanthemums, baby’s breath, coloured rice and
coconut, carnations, roses, ivy, amaranthus seeds, ferns and other plantings – all in keeping with Hyack president Bryn Ward’s 2018 theme Rooted in Tradition and Blossoming into the Future. “Hyack princess Chanel De Capite rode the Hyack float along the four-mile parade route, introducing the Royal City of New West-
minster to close to 450,000 appreciative sidewalk spectators and a television audience of approximately 2.5 million viewers,” said a press release from Hyack. Hyack makes the minifloat specifically for Portland Rose Festival Parade as its regular float doesn’t meet requirements of using all organic and floral decorations. The “skirt” frame, which is
built on top of a golf cart, is reused annually and redecorated to coordinate with Hyack’s current theme. Work on the float is very time-consuming and labour intensive, but Hyack’s Deb Wardle said the long weeks of work were worth it because the Hyack mini-float was both a crowd and judge pleaser.

Jr. Bellies face Saints in playoffs
NewWest looks to put past two losses behind them Dan Olson
Looking to recreate some of that midseason momentum they previously enjoyed, the New Westminster junior A Salmonbellies launch the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League playoffs on Friday with no one looking down the road. Over his lengthy and storied career in lacrosse, head coach Rich Catton knows looking past your opponent is asking for trouble. Despite dropping their last two games, New West enters the bestof-five semifinal as the favourite, lining up against the Port Coquitlam Saints. Although only two points separate the two teams, they have been on different trajectories in recent weeks. Despite having off-loaded their top defensive and offensive players to Coquitlam in a deadline deal last week that ended with this weekend’s sudden firing of head coach Jamie Scott, the Saints are still a tough matchup, Catton said. “Some people would think we’d look past PoCo and (on) to Coquitlam, but we won’t have any focus on anything but PoCo this week,” he said. “That’s a best-offive series we have to keep our focus on.” Head-to-head the Saints were the better team, winning 9-8 and 7-6 in the first two encounters. But the ’Bellies prevailed 9-6 two weeks ago in what was a crucial game that ended up deciding second place. While New West finished the regular season Saturday with a 14-13 loss in Victoria – where the two teams traded goals over the final 40 minutes, including an overtime session where the hosts snared the game-winning goal with 1:42 remaining – the hope is that momentum can be drawn from the work ethic established over the season and in this week’s practices. “We did a lot of great things but we came up short in the end.We had some leads, and it was a good lacrosse game. I can’t fault the boys. … Taking two losses in a row going into the playoffs isn’t the best scenario,” said Catton. Keegan Bell and recently acquired Ryan Jones counted two goals and four assists each in the loss to Victoria. Also scoring twice were Drew Andre, Cam Garlin and Dalton Lupul. The playoff series starts Friday at Queen’s Park Arena (8 p.m.), with Game 2 Sunday in PoCo.The series continues next Tuesday in New West, and if necessary, July 20 and 22.

Second wind propels champs to title
Knauer defends NewWest Grand Prix title, while Bergen climbs one-step in victory Dan Olson
Weary but broad smiles weren’t the only things Sara Bergen and Florenz Knauer had in common following the second annual New West Grand Prix on Tuesday. The pair proved through gruelling laps in separate events to be the best of their elite competition – although they both spent a good portion of their races behind the leader. Bergen captured the elite women’s criterium, whizzing through the 40-lap course and taking an event she finished second at last year.The Coquitlam-raised cyclist said the final few laps, where the grind of climbing Eighth and Carnarvon streets had become a test of endurance, was all about determination. “The strategy was to use the course because it’s a really tough course,” said Bergen, a member of the five-strong women’s Rally Cycling team. “We sort of used
that to do a lot of the work for us. You’re capitalizing on that top on that little draggy stretch.That was kind of our strategy. “We put a couple of moves early on to put the pressure on and then we just reacted with that. They always say when you feel the worst that’s the time to go, so it’s like ‘Giddy up, let’s go!’ It felt pretty bad.” She edged Australian Shannon Malseed by less than two seconds, while Rally teammate Haley Gill was a close third. Waiting and biding her time behind a bunched group for the first half, Bergen remained steadfast in sticking close and waiting for the breakaway moment. Having missed the three-day Tour de Delta due to the flu was just more incentive to power through New West’s uphill stretch for the final and decisive lap. “Your legs definitely can feel it, for sure.You try to have the best poker face as possible. It’s a super tough course and definitely one of
my favourites,” said Bergen. “It’s got a great fast downhill. It’s a lot of fun.” It was also an opportunity to show off her new red-and-white Rally jersey, reflecting her win two weeks earlier at the national criterium championships in Quebec. For Knauer, the amazing climb and ramp-up over the final lap saw a hungry pack emerge from the peloton and surge past leader Edward Walsh of Halifax, who entered the final lap with a seemingly solid six-second advantage. It echoed Knauer’s victory last year and is a strategy that has produced results on the pro circuit for the 29-year-old. “That hill doesn’t get any easier,” said Knauer. “That’s a lot of energy you have to put in to stay away.When in the pack you roll easier down the hill so we usually catch up easier. It’s tough. I actually thought (Walsh) had a good chance, then I saw at the last lap ahead, he was tired, the last lap up. … I think I was (in) 25th po-
sition down here, but I was, like, I hope the gap opens and I can sprint out. I came with a lot of momentum from the back and I think that helped a lot. It was the same sprint as last year.” A member of the two-man Hermann Radteam, Knauer finished just ahead of the Rally Cycling tandem of EricYoung and Bradley Huff of Colorado. Last year, German-born Knauer topped the event by proposing to his Canadian girlfriend, now fiancée Alisha, on the podium. It’s one reason why the event holds a special meaning for him. “It was nice to repeat the race. … To be honest, I’ve had a lot of second and third places and I’m glad I have a win now again.This is my sixth or seventh win. It’s always more special. In our sport we get measured by wins and not by second places, right?” The B.C. Superweek tour continued Wednesday with the Gastown Grand Prix and Thursday at the Giro di Burnaby.

Cyclist enjoys home race Trio lead Royal haul Dan Olson
There’s no place like home. New Westminster’s Lilly Ujfalusi is enjoying the fringe benefits of competitive cycling – which includes travelling, meeting new people and racing the best competitors in the youth women’s circuit. But coming home to race on the familiar streets has its special charm, too. “I definitely enjoy riding here and representing New West and racing with my friends,” Ujfalusi said following her podium moment at Tuesday’s New West Grand Prix.The 14-year-old finished second for a second straight year, and while winning would have been a kick, the progress she’s continued to demonstrate on the two-wheel circuit is a great motivator. She arrived home late Monday after competing in a race in Rimouski, Que. on the weekend. Ujfalusi said she was still able to plan for the Cycling B.C.-sponsored youth event. “I got in at 9 p.m. but despite that I was able to prep and bring my best for this race,” she said. “Right at the beginning, it was a quick start and I was really happy with how I was able to click in and get up the hill really quick.” The course, which took riders down Columbia Street to Eighth Street where they climbed before cornering onto Carnarvon.The climb continued through to where the street levelled out briefly, and veered to the downhill stretch on Fourth Street and back around to the start. For Ujfalusi, the journey to becoming a highly competitive youth cyclist started at a young age.

I really had no expectations of how it would come about,” said Ujfalusi, who is home schooled but attended New Westminster Secondary last year. “I just came off the street riding a bike, and its definitely been a lot better than I could imagine. At my first practice I got on the bike and wiped out in my very first practice. (But) I couldn’t stop coming.” The under-15 B.C. Cyclocross and track omnium, individual pursuit and sprints 2016 champion who races for Cannondale p/b Fortius, Ujfalusi is going to keep on pedalling towards her dream. “I’m definitely aggressive but not very dominant. I like to race hard and push my limits. … I’m definitely learning and its so great to ride with my teammates, the pros and learn from my coaches.”
Ryan Goudron, Jackson Schiebler and Katelyn Stewart-Barnett got their summer vacations off to a great start, stacking up three gold medal finishes each at the Trevor Craven Memorial Track and Field meet this past week in Burnaby. The three Royal City Track and Field Club athletes led a strong contingent from New West to the Norwester Club meet. Goudron won three events in the boys 14-15 age division: the 300-metre dash, the 2000m race and the 1500m steeplechase. For Schiebler, the victories in the 60- and 100m dash and 600m race came in the 10-year-old competition, while Stewart-Barnett topped the girls 14-15 age group’s 1500m steeplechase, the 2000m distance run and high jump. She also picked up silver in the 1200m race. Collecting a pair of gold medals was 10-year-old Talia Phangura, in shotput and discus.
