Council creates task force on local economy Theresa McManus tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

New Westminster city council has “a lot of work” to do in the next four years, says Mayor Jonathan Cote. The City of New Westminster held the inaugural meeting of the new council on Monday. Along with Cote, incumbent councillors Patrick Johnstone, Jaimie McEvoy, Chuck Puchmayr and Mary Trentadue took their oaths of office, as did new councillors Chinu Das and Nadine Nakagawa.

“Everywhere I go in New Westminster I am struck by what an incredible place that we live in. We are blessed with active and engaged residents and businesses that take pride in our city and rightfully demand that we be our best,” Cote said. “I have to admit, it can be both difficult meeting and managing the expectations in such an environment. It requires hard work and a collaborative approach to ensure New Westminster evolves as a livable, dynamic, responsive city.” Cote said initiatives that are

underway will continue to take shape, such as library upgrades and riverfront connections. Upcoming efforts include collaborating with neighbouring municipalities and senior levels of government on regional issues like affordable housing and transportation, redeveloping the Canada Games Pool and Centennial Community Centre, implementing economic development and public engagement strategies, developing a new child- and youthfriendly strategy and continuing to work on reconciliation initiatives.

At the meeting, council appointed Cote as the city’s municipal director to the Metro Vancouver Regional District board and Trentadue as an alternate. Council also supported the creation of a new task force to address matters related to the local economy and directed staff to report back on its terms of reference. Council also appointed council members to serve on several city committees and task forces: affordable housing task force – McEvoy and Nakagawa; Can-

ada Games Pool and Centennial Community Centre task force – Johnstone and McEvoy; land use and planning committee (effective Jan. 1, 2019) – Puchmayr and Trentadue; local economy task force – Das and Trentadue; major projects task force – Puchmayr (chair) and Das; riverfront and public realm task force – Johnstone and Nakagawa; and transportation task force – Johnstone and McEvoy. Cote will sit on all of the committees and taskforces.

City CRIME

Explosion leads to discovery of drug lab Cayley Dobie

cdobie@newwestrecord.ca

Police and firefighters spent much of Monday cleaning up a clandestine drug lab that was discovered after an explosion at an apartment building Sunday afternoon. Firefighters were called to the scene following reports of an explosion at an apartment building at Carnarvon and Elliot streets around 1 p.m. on Nov. 4. New Westminster Fire Chief Tim Armstrong wouldn’t comment on what firefighters encountered when they arrived at the scene, but he confirmed there was no fire. Residents were lucky there were no injuries and damage was contained to the one apartment unit, he added. “Anytime you have flammable liquids, accelerants inside a confined area, there’s a substantial risk of explosion, and I’ve seen many cases where it’s actually destroyed a building with a large enough explosion,” he told media Monday morning. The fire department’s hazardous materials team and the federal clandestine drug lab team were brought in to dismantle the lab and remove anything that could pose a threat to investigators. “From a police perspective, it’s going to be slow and methodical. We want to make sure that we’re preserving any evidence.We also want to be making sure the safety of officers and first responders is upheld throughout the whole pro-

SUIT UP: New Westminster firefighters and police were called to an apartment building on Elliot and Carnarvon streets Sunday afternoon after an explosion in what turned out to be a clandestine drug lab.

No charges have been laid yet. Officers with the police department’s street crime unit executed a search warrant after the lab was dismantled.

“Part of the investigation will be to determine who are the residents? Who lives in the suite? Who’s associated with the suite? And so, as you can imagine, something like this, from a policing side of the investigation can start to grow as we determine what evi-

dence there is for the different offences that may be being committed inside the apartment,” he added. Both Scott and Armstrong said it was too early to say what types of drugs were being made inside the apartment. More information

is expected as the investigation continues. Residents in the other units in the building were evacuated.They were let back into the building Tuesday morning. For the latest on this story, go to www.newwestrecord.ca.

New West councillor witnesses historic apology

Man arrested in connection with Iced Capp outrage

Theresa McManus tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

A New Westminster city councillor was honoured to be part of a historic day in the Tsilhqot’in people’s history. On Friday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau attended a ceremony in the Nemiah Valley and apologized to the Tsilhqot’in community for the hanging of six of their chiefs more than 150 years ago. Five Tsilhqot’in chiefs were hanged in the Chilcotin in 1864 and Chief Ahan was hanged in New Westminster in 1865. Following up on a “statement of exoneration” he made in the House of Commons in March, Trudeau visited the Nemiah Valley to meet with the Tsilhqot’in people and to tell them their chiefs were fully exonerated of any wrongdoing for attacking and killing members of a road crew that intruded on their territory in 1864.Trudeau said they were leaders and warriors who were acting in accordance with their laws and traditions while fighting against the colonial government of the time.Trudeau said the colonial

officials subsequently invited the chiefs for peacekeeping talks, only to arrest them. New Westminster Coun. Chuck Puchmayr said “it was a real honour” to be invited to attend the ceremony that took place in a remote part of the Nemiah Valley. Puchmayr has spearheaded efforts to create a sister community relationship between the City of New Westminster and the Tl-etinqox government. “This was a long, long wait,” he said. “I think this was needed to go forward.They have lived for generations with the stories of how unjust their people were treated. I think this will turn the page.” The apology to the Tsilhqot’in peoples follows a 2014 ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada that agreed the Tsilhqot’in peoples had aboriginal title to a large area of their traditional territory, marking the first time in Canada that aboriginal title outside of an Indian reserve had been confirmed. “As Tsilhqot’in representatives, we are honoured to be hosting the prime minister on our declared Aboriginal title lands.This event is about healing,” said Chief

Joe Alphonse, tribal chairman of the Tsilhqot’in Nation. “It will be a day marked in the history books for the Tsilhqot’in Nation and all of Canada. On March 26, 2018, we were in the prime minister’s government house.Yesterday – for the first time in Canadian history – the prime minister was in our government house.” At the request of the Tsilhqot’in Nation,Trudeau rode a black horse into the ceremony, which took place in a picturesque val-

ley surrounded by snow-capped mountains. “Commanding war Chief Klatsassine had a large black horse when he and the four of the five chiefs were tricked into surrender,” Puchmayr said in an email to the Record. “After the hanging of Klatsassine in Quesnel, the horse escaped, travelling hundreds of kilometres and swimming across two rivers to return to Klatsassine’s village.”

The man seen on surveillance footage flipping out at a Tim Hortons in New Westminster in September is now facing criminal charges. Alan Sam Deguillaume was arrested on Oct. 15 in Powell River, according to New Westminster Police. A warrant for the 28-yearold Burnaby resident’s arrest was issued in October after police released a security video that showed a man verbally attacking staff over an Iced Capp he had ordered at the Tim Hortons on Carnarvon Street.The video shows the man pouring the Iced Capp on the counter and knocking the register onto the ground before allegedly kicking and punching another customer who had tried to intervene. The accused has been charged with two counts of assault and one count of mischief under $5,000. He was released on bail and is scheduled to return to court on Nov. 21, according to police.

For the second year in a row, Mark Gifford will serve as the chair of the New Westminster board of education. Trustee Gifford was acclaimed as chair at Tuesday night’s inaugural school board meeting. He was one of two school trustees reelected to the school board last month after the majority of the previous board decided not to run.That makes him the most experienced trustee on the board with four years under his belt. Trustee Mary Lalji nominated first-time trustee Danielle Connelly for chair, but she declined. Anita Ansari was acclaimed vice-chair. Gifford, Lalji, Connelly and Ansari, along with fellow trustees Gurveen Dhaliwal, Dee Beattie and Maya Russell, were all sworn into office during the inaugural meeting. Representatives and alternates for the British Columbia School Trustees Association and BC Public School Employers’ Association were also chosen. The school board’s first official meeting is a combined education and operations committee meeting happening next Tuesday, Nov. 13 at the school board office, 811 Ontario St.The meeting gets underway at 7:30 p.m.

Opinion OUR VIEW

This Sunday is for remembering, not complaining We have a simple request for this coming Sunday. Don’t complain. Especially on social media. If the barista accidentally put some foam on your hot beverage – even though you clearly said, “no foam” – let it go. Don’t go on Twitter and whine that they got it wrong and that you’re now really bummed about it. If someone cuts you off in traffic, don’t post something later on Facebook complaining about the injustice of it all.

Seriously, don’t. Sunday is Remembrance Day. It’s the 100th anniversary of the end of the First WorldWar – which was supposed to be the war to end all wars. It’s a day to reflect on the sacrifices that have been made on the altar of freedom – as well as a day to consider how we can bring more peace to our current society. It should be the one day we forget about all the petty annoyances of life to consider something bigger than

Even better than not complaining is showing up at a local Remembrance Day ceremony. all of us. Even better than not complaining is showing up at a local Remembrance Day ceremony and supporting our veterans. NewWestminster residents have two good opportunities to honour fallen members of the armed

forces. The Royal Westminster Regiment Armoury will have a slide show presented from 8:45 to 9:15 a.m. highlighting the 100-year anniversary of the end of the First World War. Community members are also invited to hon-

our those who have fought and served on Canada’s behalf by attending the City of New Westminster’s annual Remembrance Day service, where community groups lay wreaths on the cenotaph and attendees observe two minutes of silence at 11 a.m.The service gets underway at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 11 at the cenotaph in front of New Westminster City Hall, 511 Royal Ave. Commonwealth countries observe a two-minute silence on Remembrance

Day to remember those who lost their lives in conflict. It’s done at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 to coincide with the time in 1918 that the First World War ended. If you can’t make this event, perhaps you can note the time when 11 a.m. hits and take a moment of silence. Discuss it with your children. Make the moment mean something. There will be plenty of time to complain about life when Monday rolls around.

MY VIEW KEITH BALDREY

Can the BC Liberals get their mojo back?

BC Liberals supporters have been in the doldrums since they were dumped from power 16 months ago, but this past weekend may prove to be a turning point. The party’s convention was energetic and featured a warmly received keynote speech by leader Andrew Wilkinson, who has been struggling to establish himself as a credible opponent to Premier John Horgan. There was an energy there that has seemed lacking among BC Liberals from the moment they lost the confidence vote in the legislature. At first angry at losing power despite winning the most seats and the most votes, the BC Liberals then became almost sullen and leaderless. Last February’s leadership convention sparked some life into the party, but you get the impression they are still getting used to being the Official Opposition. However, the convention provided signs they have accepted reality and that, if they want to change that to something better, key changes have to be made. For one thing, there seems to be a recognition – from Wilkinson on down – that the party has to get more diverse. All political parties must start better reflecting the demographic makeup of the province’s communities. Millennials makeup the single-biggest age grouping in the country, greater than Baby Boomers or GenXers. B.C., especially Metro Vancouver, has a rich cultural diversity, and women make up half of voters.

The BC Liberals (and the BC NDP and the BC Greens) would do well to groom future candidates matching that new demographic reality and run them in ridings where they have a chance at winning. Wilkinson’s speech also revealed his party might have hit upon some issues that may resonate with voters. He talked of revamping ICBC while stopping short of vowing to end the government monopoly on auto insurance. The BC Liberals have rightly been blamed for ICBC’s fiscal woes. Nevertheless, as time goes by, and a series of significant rate hikes occur on the NDP’s watch, responsibility for ICBC headaches will shift. Wilkinson zeroed in on another traditional soft spot for any NDP government – tax increases. He promised to get rid of 18 of them, including the speculation tax, the employer health tax and a host of others. The BC Liberals still have a ways to go before they can match the NDP for confidence and organization. Horgan remains his government’s top asset. However, time always inflicts a mounting number of scars on any government, and the NDP will not be an exception. Perhaps for the first time since that lost confidence vote, the BC Liberals are finally showing signs they may be able to take advantage and begin to inflict a few political scars of their own. Keith Baldrey is chief political correspondent for Global BC.

Teen robbers target pricey clubs A dramatic armed robbery in Metrotown was aimed, not at a bank, but a golf store in September.Two teens waving what appeared to be semi-automatic handguns busted into the Riverside Golf Centre wearing ski masks. The pair, described as 16 or 17 years old, ordered employees to the ground and duct-taped them.While one suspect guarded employees, the other grabbed 64 highend golf clubs and shoved them into a large plastic lawn bag. Police said the robbers were obviously familiar with the makes and models of expensive clubs.They made off with 11 Calloway Big Berthas, 32 Great Big Berthas, plus some Warbirds and Orlimar Trimetal clubs.

Two PR options untested Editor: Re: Vote ‘yes’ in referendum, Record Letters, Nov. 2. Judy Darcy’s glib letter asking for support in voting for proportional representation in the upcoming referendum was concerning. How a former labour leader and AG (David Eby) could advocate putting such an ill-defined initiative to their respective members and clients is astounding. Perhaps now that they are politicians, the accountability is different. Of the three PR options proposed, two have not been implemented anywhere in the world. If the referendum passes, future legislatures will be filled with single-issue fanatics, all exercising their leverage demanding support for their pet projects. Despite the excesses of our current system, better the devil you know than this behind-thescenes-deal-making scenario. This leap of faith is one I won’t be making. Paul Martin, New Westminster

Housing a ‘pipe dream’ Editor: I recently saw an advertisement for yet another highrise to be built in downtown New Westminster. I’ve visited some of the presentation centres for the new highrises, walked around the apartment mock-ups, imagined myself cooking a meal or entertaining friends in the pristine confines, run my hands across the smooth, cool, stone surfaces, gazed longingly at the photographs of future vistas, but it’s all just

a pipe dream for me. Lord knows we need more housing in New West, but how about some affordable housing? Building another high-priced luxury condo isn’t very much help. I’ve been looking to buy a place for several months now, ever since I discovered that, with the money I’ve paid in rent over the past five years, I could be buying a home of my own. Yeah, maybe in the old days, like about three years ago, when condos in this community were still reasonably priced. Where is the affordable housing everybody in the most recent election was keen to identify as a “priority,” and just what do they consider affordable? Some of the numbers I’ve seen thrown around for “affordable housing” still leave me in the dust. It’s OK for me to pay the equivalent of a house payment each month for rent and be expected to pay annual increases in the neighbourhood of four per cent, but I am not allowed the luxury of even dreaming about owning a place of my own because “priority” housing, which was such a buzz word during the election, is a non-starter. Unfortunately, New Westminster has caught the Vancouver disease, and it is only a matter of time before the ordinary working stiffs of New West are pushed further out of our community by overpriced, luxury housing, built for people who have been displaced by the overpriced, luxury housing market in Vancouver. I would suggest that we put a stop to this before it gets out of hand, but, unfortunately, that ship has already sailed. Betty R. L. Gray, New Westminster

Students compete in CANstruction challenge Teams from across the Lower Mainland took part in fundraiser Maria Rantanen

editorial@newwestrecord.ca

Charity and engineering came together at Lougheed Town Centre on Saturday as teams competed to build structures out of food cans – the food was going to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, and the construction know-how came from architects, engineers, design students and drafting high school students. Each team was challenged to build a structure of cans – around 4,000 for each team – based on the theme “it takes a village.” Designs included Whoville, a beehive, HaCANa Matata, a village of Smurfs and CANada (with an explanation that “Canada” comes from the Huron-Iroquois word “Kanata” which means village). Cynthia Kinsella, chief development officer for Greater Vancouver Food Bank, which distributes food in Burnaby, New Westminster, North and West Vancouver and Vancouver, said CANstruction will raise up to 25,000 pounds of food for the food bank, but also it will raise awareness about the non-profit that distributes food weekly. She pointed out the food bank has seen a 30 per cent increase in demand over the past year, while donations have been down. “When you see your donations going down and needs going up, you hit a crisis,” she said. Students from UBC’s applied sciences faculty and the School of Architecture and Landscape Archi-

tecture combined cans of beans, corn and tomatoes in a structure of a giant tomato surrounded by corn stalks, symbolizing the unequal access people have to nutritious food – one can see the tomato, but it is out of reach. “Corn is an accessible grain – it’s cheaper but not as nutritious (as tomatoes),” explained Kaili Sun, an environmental design student. Barriers to accessing healthy food can be financial, social or political. “You can see through the wall (of corn) but you can’t reach it,” he added. Students from New Westminster Secondary teamed up with Bosa Construction to build a 10-foot-high structure from colourful cans called HaCANa Matata, a visual scene from the movie The Lion King. The structure the students were creating at Lougheed Town Centre required design thinking, empathy (“why do we care?”), thinking outside the box, then thinking inside the box, problem solving, physics, math, AutoCAD design and 3D printing, explained drafting teacher Val Pontier as he helped the students create cardboard pieces needed to hold up their structure. Gary Pattern, New Westminster school district facilitator, said CANstruction fits well into the new curriculum being introduced into schools across the province. In tech education, the focus is always on problem solving, Pattern said, and this is now embedded into all curriculum.

NOW $960,000!!!

STACKING UP: Piper Redden and Martin Rabie of New Westminster Secondary were part of one of 10 teams from across the Lower

Mainland competed in CANstruction Vancouver at Lougheed Town Centre. The teams created large structures made entirely out of canned foods, which will be donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. PHOTO JENNIFER GAUTHIER

“It takes weeks to problem solve and get to this point,” Pattern said. Even being off by an eighth of an inch in their structure can make huge difference, he added. Tech education and projects like CANstruction help students develop skills that employers are looking for, Pattern explained. “Kids need to have knowledge, good attitude and skills when they graduate,” he said. “Some of those things aren’t taught in the classroom.” The crew at Fast & Epp had spent their lunch hours this week doing final preparations for their beehive for

CANstruction, which they were creating jointly with SFU Community Trust. This is the fourth time the Vancouver-based company is involved in the fundraising event, and twice in the past they’ve won the structural ingenuity category at the “Acanemy Awards.” The beehive will be eight feet tall and will be lit up, explained Nikki Johnston, marketing coordinator with Fast & Epp “For us as engineers, we want to contribute back to society,” said Johnston. “(It’s) a great way to merge a great campaign with the work we do.”

$629,900

NOW $549,000!

A calculation by Caroline Manuel with Greater Vancouver Food Bank, showed the Whoville construction was contributing 48,272 grams of protein to the food bank. Those who frequent the food bank tend to have higher instances of chronic diseases, Manuel pointed out, which is why they focus on nutritious food and also work with nurses from Vancouver Coastal Health. Their tagline is “building strong and connected through the power of food,” she added. The food bank has been focusing on distributing healthy food to its clients,

especially hearty meals with a lot of protein, Kinsella explained.They are asking for donations like natural nut butters, canned fish, canned chicken, canned beans, soups and stews. The 10 teams started building at 6:30 a.m. and had 12 hours to complete their structures.The structures will be on display until Nov. 10 and anyone can vote on their favourite design with a donation of $5 or three cans of food. All the cans and cash donations will go to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, which serves 27,000 people weekly in 13 communities.

Community You can help make this social enterprise a reality Julie MacLellan

jmaclellan@newwestrecord.ca

Louise Cournoyer was roaming through Queen’s Park, ruminating about how lovely the setting is, when the idea first came to her: Wouldn’t this be a great place for a nice little coffee shop? As she walked, the idea grew.Wouldn’t it be nice to have something to draw people out to The Gallery at Queen’s Park?Wouldn’t that little patio-like area at the front of the gallery be a nice spot to sit with a coffee? And wouldn’t it be lovely to combine her love of coffee and art with some sort of social enterprise that could help un- and underemployed people, especially those facing mental health challenges? All of these thoughts led Cournoyer down the path towards a new idea: the Coffee C’Art. The Arts Council of New Westminster is hosting a visioning session on Wednesday, Nov. 14 to help flesh

out the concept.The basic premise is simple: a mobile espresso cart, to be designed by local artists and community members, that would bring members of the community together. “I’m a big fan of local coffee shops, so I always try to support the local shops,” Cournoyer said. “I’m from Montreal; I love my coffee shops.” Cournoyer is a fan of the work being done by the Arts Council of New Westminster; her son,Will Clements, served as the arts council’s music programmer over the summer. She also works as a mental health clinician, so she’s well aware of the employment challenges faced by that population. And she’s a fan of the idea of helping to create employment – along the lines of what has been achieved by the HOpe Centre in North Vancouver, where inpatient and outpatient mental health services for Lions Gate Hospital are based.There, the Canadian Mental Health Association

runs a Blenz coffee shop that employs people who have faced mental illness. Putting all of those ideas together, Cournoyer took her suggestion to Stephen O’Shea, the arts council’s executive director. “Here’s an idea I’ve had to connect the community at large, the arts community, to develop a social enterprise to help people who are unemployed or underemployed,” is how she sums it up. The arts council board agreed it seemed like a valuable idea and applied for grants to help with funding – so far, it’s received a ONE Prize grant from River Market and a Neighbourhood Small Grant through Family Services of Greater Vancouver. Now they’re opening the doors to ask New Westminster community members to help make the idea a reality. “We really want the community to come and tell us what they think,” Cournoyer said.

Coming soon: A quality coffee could be coming soon to a park near you, if a new idea for a mobile “Coffee C’Art” comes to fruition. A visioning session for the plan is being held on Nov. 14. PHOTO PIXABAY

The visioning session will solicit input on every aspect of the project – what the cart should look like, where it should be stationed, how the whole plan will work, how to get artists and local art involved, how to incorporate good, locally sourced coffee. “Frankly, I want a good coffee too,” Cournoyer said. “We want to do it right.” Cournoyer is already tossing around many ideas. Perhaps the cart can find a

home base in front of the gallery but travel to a variety of community events over the summer season. Perhaps the cart itself can be designed by local artists and be, in itself, a work of art. Perhaps it can include an art sales component, with local art postcards or books by local writers. Perhaps it can include a performance component – with poetry readings, music, storytelling, children’s storytimes. “Of course the sky’s the

limit.This is what we’re going to vision,” she said. The project still needs to secure more funding in order to become reality, since there will be sizable costs involved in building and outfitting an operational cart, but Cournoyer is crossing her fingers that it can become a reality for the summer of 2019. And she’s hoping plenty of interested community members will turn out at the visioning session on Nov. 14, so the community will be engaged in the project right from the beginning. “My hope is that people see the cart and say, ‘This is the cart I helped build,’” she said. The visioning session is on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at The Gallery at Queen’s Park. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the session will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Organizers ask that those who want to attend register in advance. See www.tinyurl.com/NWCoffeeCart for all the details.

!&$&$)!#"(&Lest'#% we forget Commemorate Remembrance Day in New West Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

The 2018 Remembrance Day ceremony at The Royal Westminster Regiment Armoury will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. More than 1,400 Westies gave their lives fighting for freedom in the First World War, which ended on Nov. 11, 1918, when Germany signed an armistice, an agreement to stop fighting, that had been prepared by Britain and France. “We will have a slide show presented from 8:45 to 9:15 a.m. highlighting the 100-year anniversary,” said Adjutant Capt. Richard Desaulniers of The Royal Westminster Regiment. “Our main ceremony starts at 9:45 a.m. It will be about 15 to 20 minutes and then we will be marching down to the city ceremony at 10:30.” The regiment’s doors will open at 8:30 a.m., and anyone wishing to attend is advised to arrive early as seats

fill up fast. “We’d like to see the community at our ceremony. We appreciate the support from the community,” Desaulniers said. “Usually it’s filled by about 9:15. Unfortunately we will have to turn people away at the door after that.” The main ceremony includes readings of a selection of poems and the sing-

ing of O Canada and God Save the Queen. Desaulniers said many soldiers from The Royal Westminster Regiment, then known as the Westminster Regiment, served in the First World War and at least 1,400 died during the course of the war. Community members are also invited to honour those who have fought

and served on Canada’s behalf by attending the City of New Westminster’s annual Remembrance Day service, where community groups lay wreaths on the cenotaph and attendees observe two minutes of si-

lence at 11 a.m.The service gets underway at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 11 at the cenotaph in front of New Westminster City Hall, 511 Royal Ave. Commonwealth countries observe a two-minute

silence on Remembrance Day to remember those who lost their lives in conflict. It’s done at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 to coincide with the time in 1918 that the First World War ended.

!&$&$)!#"(&Lest'#% we forget The Poppy Project continues to grow in the city Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

A blanket created for Remembrance Day is growing bigger by the year. Two years ago, a group of local knitters began knitting, crocheting and felting poppies for a blanket that could be displayed in New Westminster for Remembrance Day.The blanket has grown to include about 1,000 poppies. “It was 600 last year, so now it has almost doubled,” said Reena Meijer Drees, who helped spearhead the initiative. “Last year it was bigger than a twin, now it’s going to be like king-size.” The idea behind the Poppy Project is to create a large art installation that honours all Canadians who have experienced the horrors of war. “It’s about the thought process,” Meijer Drees said of making the poppies. “It’s something that’s made by hand. It’s not a machine that pumps out poppies. It’s somebody who sits down

and spends 15 minutes to do this.That’s a statement in itself.” Like last year, community members will have a chance to view the blanket at a couple of venues, where it will be part of a display leading up to and following Remembrance Day. The military display will see the blanket placed on a cot, with a soldier’s boots and jacket placed nearby. Community members can view the blanket at River Market (near the food court) until Nov. 11 and at the Queensborough Community Centre lobby from Nov. 12 to 19. It’s also being taken out on a couple of brief excursions – it was at the No Stone Left Alone poppy-laying ceremony at the Fraser Cemetery on Nov. 5 and will be at the Remembrance Day service at the Armoury on Sunday, Nov. 11. In October, community members attended wetfelting sessions where they made poppies for the blanket.

Special symbol: A blanket created as part of the Poppy Project was on display at a number of venues in New Westminster last November. The blanket is growing in size thanks to the efforts of local community members to create poppies for the project. PHOTO RECORD FILES

“It’s been amazing,” Meijer Drees said. “We got the giant gift of wool – that has really enabled us to go out into the community and connect with people who don’t knit or crochet and can make a poppy.We had a couple sessions at Century House.We were able to line up two public sessions, one

at the Anvil Centre and one at River Market.” Meijer Drees is pleased with the way the project has grown, and invites knitters and crocheters to contribute poppies to the project year round and drop then off at CosyYarns in River Market. “This year we also had little kits.Those were quite

popular.We would provide a little Ziploc bag with a pattern, a little bit or red yarn and a little bit of black yarn, and our business card.They were left in a basket by the display at Century House. People could take one, and hopefully we get that back in the form of a poppy. When you send stuff into

the wild, you can’t tell what is going to happen,” Meijer Drees said. “Hopefully we will be able to do more of that during the course of the year, making up kits. It’s about public engagement.” The Poppy Project received a grant through the Neighbourhood Small Grants – New Westminster, which it will use to buy military items for its display. Last year, the Poppy Project borrowed items from the Royal Westminster Regiment. “With our grant money we are going to be purchasing our own military kit because we don’t like the risk of taking precious items out of the Armoury museum. We are just going to go out and buy a camp cot and a couple army boots and a jacket,” Meijer Drees said. “It’s not super important that it’s old. It just has to look military.” More information on the Poppy Project can be found at www.thepoppyproject.ca.

!&$&$)!#"(&Lest'#% we forget The bells will be ringing The Bells of Peace will ring out in the Royal City on Remembrance Day. Queens Avenue United Church is joining with other bell ringers across Canada who are in ringing Carillonic Bells in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.The Royal Canadian Legion’s Bells of Peace will toll on Sunday, Nov. 11 at dusk. “The ringing of bells emulates the moment in 1918 when church bells across Europe tolled as four years of war had come to an end,” states a write-up on the Royal Canadian Legion website. When Candians hear the bells toll on

Nov. 11, the legion encourages them to take a moment to pause and remember all those who have served and sacrificed. Ron de Gaust, the sound man at Queens Avenue United Church, will personally ring the Carillon from inside the church. It’s anticipated it should take about eight minutes for the 100 tolls. The Carillon normally rings out several times a day in New Westminster. It’s attached to the church’s Casavant Frères pipe organ and can be played from the organ console or from a special feature on the Schulmerich Carillon itself.

The history of the poppy Each November, poppies bloom on the lapels and collars of millions of Canadians. The significance of the poppy can be traced back to the Napoleonic Wars in the 19th century, over 110 years before being adopted in Canada. Records from that time indicate how thick poppies grew over the graves of soldiers in the area of Flanders, France. During the tremendous bombardments of the war, the chalk soils became rich in lime from rubble, allowing the “popaver rhoeas” to thrive.When the war ended, the lime was quickly absorbed and the poppy began to disappear again. The person who first introduced the

poppy to Canada and the Commonwealth was Lt.-Col. John McCrae of Guelph, Ont., a Canadian medical officer during the First World War. McCrae penned the poem In Flanders Fields on a scrap of paper in May 1915 on the day following the death of a fellow soldier. The Great War Veteran’s Association in Canada (the Legion’s predecessor) officially adopted the poppy as its flower of remembrance on July 5, 1921. Today, the poppy is worn each year during the Remembrance period to honour Canada's Fallen. – Source: Royal Canadian Legion

Compass Cards created in honour of Canadian veterans Cards will help to support Legion’s Poppy Fund This Remembrance Day marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. To honour this important anniversary, TransLink has come up with some seriously cool Compass Cards that will raise money for a worthy cause. “We are proud to release commemorative Compass Cards in honour of all Canadian veterans who have served our country,” said a news release about two cards emblazoned with poppies. Adult cards are available at 25 SkyTrain stations across the system. Look for the Remembrance Day symbol on vending machines or contact Customer Information (604-953-3333) to find out where cards are still available. Adult and concession cards are also available at the Compass Customer Service Centre at Stadium-Chinatown Station. TransLink will make a 10-cent donation to the Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Fund for each card purchased. The transit agency also announced that veterans ride for free on all TransLink services on Sunday, Nov. 11 by presenting their military ID or record of service card. One accessible fare gate will be left open at all SkyTrain, Canada Line and SeaBus stations.

Stevenson died 79 years ago but because he had no family in the city when he died, he never received a gravestone.

Arts & Entertainment New program aims to break barriers in the arts The Massey Theatre is working to break down barriers to participation in the arts. The theatre has launched a series of programming, Massey Unlimited, that’s designed to help make a range of artistic experiences accessible to everyone in the community. “Massey Unlimited is focused on providing barrier-free access to the community to art through performing, participating and experiencing,” says a press release about the new programming. Coming this month, Massey Unlimited programming includes the following: NOV. 8: PLAY READING Five different Indigenous love stories form the basis of You Used to Call Me Marie, by Tai Amy Grauman. Local audiences are welcome to turn out for a reading of the play on Nov. 8 at

7 p.m. in the Plaskett Gallery. It’s the first in a series of play readings produced and presented by Savage Society in partnership with Massey Theatre. Savage Society tells contemporary Indigenous stories sourcing myth, tradition and contemporary Indigenous perspectives. You Used To Call Me Marie follows two souls in five different Indigenous love stories, at five distinct periods in history. Moving through five different lives, the souls begin their journey in the Plains Cree community in pre-colonial times and spend their final life as two young Métis people where the man marries a non-Indigenous woman, disrupting the bloodline. “Through alternate forms of theatrical structure, the piece explores ancestors’ history and the ways in which a young woman inherits trauma from the matriarchs in the family,” the

Community Learn about adoption by listening to adoptees Mommy’s GROUNDED Bianca Bujan

As I was watching a recent episode of This Is Us the other night, I realized the show was doing something rarely ever done on TV – it was flipping the script on adoption.The show was not only presenting the perspective of the adoptive and biological parents (as is done on other TV shows), but giving a voice to the adoptees as well through the sharp narrative of the characters of Randall and Deja. For the first time, I was able to connect with a fictional TV character who, like myself, was sharing their personal perspective as an adoptee. November is National Adoption Awareness Month (Nov. 9 marks World Adoption Day), with a monthlong observance focused on celebrating adoptive families and creating awareness around adoption in Canada. With so many children in care, adoption is an important conversation to be had here in Canada.We often hear stories of adoption shared by adoptive parents or biological parents, but the missing piece of the adoption puzzle is hearing from those who have been adopted themselves. One-in-five Canadians are affected by adoption – that adds up to nearly seven million people. Approximately 30,000 children in Canada are legally free or eligible for adoption, and over 1,000 children and youth in B.C. are currently looking for forever homes. Local celebrities

Sarah McLachlan and Bif Naked were adopted, along with Steve Jobs, Jamie Foxx, Faith Hill and a slew of other celebrities. More and more, adoption is being discussed in the media. Celebrities are sharing their tales of international adoption, adoption is being included in the scripts of TV shows and movies, and we’re seeing more discussion around the diversity of adoptive parents, recognizing single parents, and parents from the LGBTQ community as equally as fit to foster and adopt.The problem, though, is that conversations around adoption have always been more about filling a void for parents, and less about finding a home for the deserving children who have yet to find their forever families. In November 2014, a Twitter hashtag movement was started by Rosita González of Lost Daughters (a site focused on giving voices to adult adoptees) called #FlipTheScript, aiming to address these unheard voices. On why the movement seemed necessary, the website reads, “Adoption professionals and adoptive parents are overwhelmingly represented during the month of November (National Adoption Awareness

Month).Whenever education is taking place about an issue or community, all voices of that community must be included.The world needs to hear adoptee voices included in the dialogue about adoption.” As posts using the hashtag have begun to emerge this month, so have important stories and messages shared by adoptees that have never before felt that their voices were being heard. One adoptee shared on Twitter, “Adoption should be about finding families for children in need, not finding children for “families in want,” ending her post with #FlipTheScript. Another tweet using the hashtag reads, “Each individual who was fostered and/or adopted has their own story, their own truth. November is the month truths are told.” This month, don’t just read the stats and listen to the stories of the parents and professionals involved in adoption (although their voices are also important), listen to those who have experienced adoption firsthand. We can only understand adoption in its entirety if we listen to what adoptees have to share as well. Bianca Bujan is a mom of three, writer and editor.

Season starts here for Hyacks

Defending B.C. champs launch playoffs on Friday

Dan Olson

dolson@newwestrecord.ca

The message and checklist remain the same for the New Westminster Hyacks. The only difference is, unlike a year ago, this year’s senior football team will be tasked with starting the playoffs without a wave of momentum behind them. With the end of the regular season – culminating with a thrilling 34-28 loss at the hands of visiting Mount Douglas – New West enters the playoffs focusing on tightening the script. Although they won’t be facing an air-itout opponent Friday (7:30 p.m. at Mercer Stadium) in the Abbotsford Panthers, the Valley squad brings its share of weapons. The Hyacks have just one at getting If you find a chance this right. way to win “(Abbotsford) those two play with heavy formations, they’ve games your got big linemen record looks and they’re goto try smash completely ing mouth and run it different. at you. (Running back Jalem Catlin) is a good, dangerous player, an athletic kid who can run through tackles and we’ve got to get to him early,” remarked Hyack coach Farhan Lalji. To do that, it will be vital that the defence shakes those initial blocks quickly and put up a Trumpian wall against Catlin, who led all rushers in the B.C. AAA circuit with a eye-popping 229 yards gained per game. And while Abbotsford was a middling 3-4 in the Eastern Conference, including last week’s 31-0 loss to No. 1-ranked Lord Tweedsmuir, Lalji’s research has discovered a rival that improved since the two teams locked horns in early September – a 40-6 exhibition win for New West. “We beat them handily (at Homecoming), but it wasn’t a game that we really felt good about,” he noted. “We took some penalties, we weren’t clean on offence.We struggled against their blitz but we did pop some big plays which our offence can do, but we didn’t play a complete game.” That’s likely what it will take, although winning by any measure will be what matters at this stage. Last week’s loss was a highlight reel of big plays and costly gaffes, as New West garnered a solid lead only to see it slip away with the Rams’ late fireworks.The hosts led 21-13 at halftime and 28-19 midway through the final quarter, but fell victim to a rapid-fire rally, with Mount Doug replying with back-to-back touchdowns.They won it on a 12-yard passing play from quarterback Gideone Kremler with a minute left. “Defensively we couldn’t make a stop when we needed it,” said Lalji. “It was similar to the Notre Dame game in a lot of ways, Continued on page 36

Royals aim to be hosts with the most Douglas College welcomes Canadian rivals for national soccer championships

As an underdog, the Douglas College women’s soccer team understands the huge obstacles before them. But they’re also aware of their own capabilities, and aim to ensure that this week everything is placed on the table. The women’s Royals are playing host to the best teams from the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association at the national championships at Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park. Although they were unable to successfully defend their provincial title, knowing they had a berth guaranteed at the nationals allowed for some strategizing. Now, making a fourth straight national appearance

has given the program a certain gravitas when it comes to expectations. The tourney began for Douglas on Wednesday, when they went head-to-head with fourtime defending national champion Elan de Garneau. No easy assignment, obviously. “I think the closest comparison we had in our games this year to Garneau was (an exhibition match in August) against UBC. Although that score (4-0 for the Canada West team) wasn’t flattering in the end, we were able to match them in many aspects,” Douglas head coach Brad Laxton said. They met Garneau at the nationals last year and fell 1-0 – an

impressive showing for the Royals, said Laxton. Ranked eighth in the final pre-season national poll, the Royals will look to try and emulate all the host teams who played second fiddle to a provincial champion until the final tournament. Prior to the start of the nationals, Douglas captain Sam Kell was named to the All-Canadian list.The fifth-year standout is just one of the leaders on this year’s squad. Games continue Thursday, with semifinals slated for 3 and 5:30 p.m.The final goes Saturday at 3 p.m.

ROYALS ON COURT RUN The Douglas College men’s

winning streak has reached six. The collegiate volleyball team continued its perfect run through the PacWest circuit, racking up a pair of 3-0 shutouts over the University of the Fraser Valley on the weekend. Already ranked among the nation’s top-eight teams, the Royals are making it hard to ignore the furious fashion they’ve started the new season. Ben Shand led the way in the first match with 10 kills, while Max Haronga and Reid Marriott chipped in nine each. A day later, Marriott set the pace with 11 kills as Douglas prevailed 25-16, 25-20, 25-15. New West native John Colobong chipped in three kills and three digs.

New West exits mid-pack at provincial race

A strong contingent of junior boys helped spirit the New West Secondary cross country team to 15th among all schools at last week’s provincial championships. Led by Mahad Amen Ali, who placed 18th in the division race with a time of 14:55 minutes, New West did well in a crowded field during a wet day of running

in Nanaimo. L.V. Rogers’ Matti Erickson topped the junior boys race with a time of 13:42. In 49th spot was the Hyacks’ Colin Brooks, at 15:32, while Evan Beckers placed 139th, finishing in 16:40. Santie Ainslie placed 169th. On the girls side, Sophie Crowther

crossed the junior girls’ finish line in 17:21, good for 39th spot, and 1:49 back of South Delta’s Madelyn Bonikowsky, who led the pack. Among senior girls runners, New West’s Lara Borgford was 156th, with a time of 30:29, while right behind her was teammate Ava Lee.

Shasta Hyacks hope for fresh start against Abby sends two to Russia Smith, deWolff to represent Canada at worlds

New Westminster’s Curt de Wolff is part of the coaching staff, and Samantha Smith is in competition at this week’s FIG World championships in trampoline in St. Petersburg, Russia. De Wolff and Smith are both members of the New West-based Shasta Trampoline Club. Smith, originally from Toronto, will be competing in individual women’s trampoline. The 26-year-old is attending her seventh world championships, having posted her best finish in 2014 in Florida when she finished eighth overall. Last year in Bulgaria Smith placed 16th. She was also part of Canada’s gold medal team at the 2014 Pan Am trials. De Wolff will be focusing on coaching the Canadian doublemini trampoline team. The worlds run until Nov. 10.

Continued from page 35 which is disappointing. If you find a way to win those two games your record looks completely different and you feel a lot better about yourself going into the playoffs.” The 4-3 Hyacks do have reasons to feel positive entering the playoffs with a shot at defending last year’s B.C. Subway Bowl title. Quarter-back/linebacker Kinsale Phillip is back, with a full game under his belt after missing the previous three games due to injury. Running back Broxx Comia, in Phillip’s absence, turned on the jets to average more than 140 yards over the past two games, and scoring four touchdowns in that span. Coupled with the standout season of defensive lineman Evan Nolli, who was named the Western Conference’s Defensive player of the year this week, these elements all add up to reasons for optimism

despite dropping three of their last four games. “Evan is as good a defensive lineman that we’ve ever had, and that’s saying something when we just graduated Isaiah (James) and Yanni (Angelopolous),” said Lalji. “Those guys were good and Evan’s equally as good and extremely versatile. “He’s going to have a great collegiate career down the road and is an exceptional talent.” Also receiving conference allstar honours were offensive lineman Daniel Dordevic and Phillip at linebacker. The team can ill-afford to look past the Panthers, said the coach, nor hang it’s hat on last year’s provincial title. It all comes down to making the tackles, clearing the blocks and scoring more points than the other guy. “One of the hallmarks of where we were a year ago is we’d always

find ways to win those games, right? Those are the lessons and feelings you want to take with you. You don’t want to take those feel-

ings where you kind of feel you’re not going to find a way to make the play because you didn’t last time,” said Lalji.

SFU finish second in GNAC cross-country finals

The Simon Fraser University women’s cross country team was chasing just one team at last week’s Great Northwest Athletic Conference’s cross country championships in Monmouth, Ore.

The women’s team finished second overall behind the University of Alaska Anchorage – just as the men’s side did. On the women’s team, New Westminster native Claire Noort placed 35th overall with a

time of 23:11.Teammate and Hyack alumna Emily Chilton finished 37th overall. SFU’s top runners were Olivia Willett, who finished fourth in 21:49, Addy Townsend at seventh, and Sophia Kaiser in eighth.

She is pre-deceased by her husband Malvern and sister Helen LaClaire of Australia. Pauline was born January 9, 1924 in Calgary, Alberta to Roy and Nellie (Duncan). In 1948 she married Mal and their daughter Jennifer was born in 1961. Pauline will be sadly missed for her love and unconditional support to her daughter Jennifer (Ronald Lauener) and grandchildren Joshua, James and Megan. Pauline spent her early life in Royalties and attended school in Turner Valley, Alberta. She graduated in Medicine in 1948 from University of Alberta then completed a specialty in Psychiatry. Her 32-year career with the B.C. Provincial Government included 29 years with Woodlands. It was at Woodlands that she filled the position of Director of Psychiatric Services and then Superintendent. This was a true testament of her accomplishment being the first female Psychiatrist appointed to a major Psychiatric facility in Canada. Alongside her career Pauline was a Director of CKNW Orphan’s Fund for 29 years. She also served on the Douglas College Board of Directors. Pauline was a member of the New Westminster University Women’s Club and Canadian Club of New Westminster and the Fraser Valley. She also volunteered at the Genealogical Library. After retiring in 1984 Pauline and Mal enjoyed their motor home and taking cruises. With her passion for genealogy came many more trips. Jennifer and the family wish to thank the staff at Normanna, Sorheim Unit, for their compassionate and professional care given to Pauline. A memorial service in celebration of Pauline’s life will be held at 2:30 p.m. Friday, November 9, 2018 at Kearney’s Columbia-Bowell Chapel 219 - 6 Street, New Westminster, B.C.
