New West recycling depot to close in 2020 Theresa McManus tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

New Westminster’s recycling depot is leaving town in 2020. At a closed meeting in February, city council agreed to participate with Tri-Cities municipalities and Metro Vancouver in the new Coquitlam transfer station and recycling depot that’s being built on the former Coquitlam landfill site at 995 United Blvd. The layout of the future New

Westminster Aquatics and Community Centre facility prevents the recycling depot from staying at its current location at Sixth Avenue and McBride Boulevard. Kristian Davis, the city’s supervisor of solid waste and recycling, said residents will be able to recycle more items than those currently accepted at the city’s depot, including electronics.They’ll also be able to pay to dispose of items at the transfer station. “The added five minutes’ drive

time, if you are coming from somewhere further west of the depot, is probably not too cumbersome when you think of the new facility being able to accept far more items and being a one-stop shop rather than having to go to multiple locations,” he said. A 2017/18 survey of about 200 patrons of the recycling depot found that 77 per cent of respondents frequent the recycling depot regularly, with 37 per cent visiting once a week and 40 per cent visit-

ing once a month. Of the survey respondents, 27 per cent live in Queen’s Park, 25 per cent in Glenbrook, 17 per cent in Sapperton, 13 per cent in the West End, 12 per cent in Massey Heights, and seven per cent in Queensborough or other neighbourhoods. A report to council said staff investigated alternative locations for a recycling depot but found it wasn’t cost-effective to establish a new facility in New West because

of the high price of land, the proximity to private recycling facilities and the breadth of the city’s current residential recycling and organic waste collection programs. The report said Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody agreed to participate in funding the new regional recycling depot. New West’s annual cost will be $44,000, which is less than the $113,000 it cost to operate its recycling depot in 2017. Continued on page 3

City Beat HOUSING

City to correct errors in new zoning bylaw Theresa McManus tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

The City of New Westminster is taking steps to address incorrect information included in a controversial bylaw adopted earlier this year. Council adopted in January a zoning amendment bylaw that designated 12 city-owned properties and six private properties for residential rental tenure. While tenants and affordable housing advocates praised the city’s decision, owners of the buildings and representatives from the development industry argued there were inaccuracies in bylaw 8078.They asked the city to put the plan on hold for 90 days so there could be more consultation. The bylaw is intended to preserve properties at 214 Agnes St., 215 - 10th St., 211 - 11th St., 425 12th St., 723 - 12th St. and 514 13th St. as rental only.These properties were built as strata but have been operating as rentals. After council approved the zoning amendment bylaw, the registered owners of all six strata properties petitioned the Supreme Court of British Columbia to declare bylaw 8078 illegal and/or void, to impose an order quashing the bylaw and to pay costs of the legal action.They alleged city staff had provided “false, incomplete and misleading information” in relation to the purpose and effect of Bylaw 8078 to both the petitioners and to tenants living in units in the six buildings. A May 6 report to council states that letters from the city to owners and residents of the affected properties as part of the consideration of the bylaw 8078 “incorrectly stated that the effect of the bylaw would be to prevent the units from being individually marketed for sale.”

ZONING CHANGES: Geordie Place at 723 - 12 St. is one of the properties impacted by the city’s new zoning bylaw.

PHOTO RECORD FILES

“The city does not have, through the enactment of zoning regulations, the authority to restrict the sale of stratified residential units, though other legislative tools exist to create such restrictions with the agreement of the property owners,” said the report. According to the city report, the bylaw is being challenged by petition in B.C. Supreme Court and the erroneous information about the marketing of individual stra-

ta lots is one of the grounds of the challenge. “The city has filed a response to the petition, which concedes the inaccuracy of this information,” said the report. “The proposed further zoning bylaw amendment process provides an opportunity for the city to redo the notification and public hearing procedures, including properly worded public hearing notices.” On May 6, council gave two

readings to a new zoning amendment bylaw (8123), which aims to “more clearly achieve the intent of the original bylaw.”This includes: amending the descriptions of residential rental tenure to correct a reference to the Societies Act and to add Greater Vancouver Housing Corporation as a potential landlord; more clearly indicating the rental tenure doesn’t apply to commercial properties; and amending the descriptions of the

affected properties to ensure that changes in legal status, such as the wind-up of a strata corporation and cancellation of a strata plan, are covered. A public hearing on zoning amendment bylaw 8123 will take place on Monday, May 27. “City council and I are strongly committed to preserving our rental housing stock, and to making the policy and zoning changes needed to do that,” Mayor Jonathan Cote said in a press release. “By considering the new bylaw, we’re ensuring that New Westminster is being fully transparent in communicating the effects of rental zoning.” The new bylaw continues the effect of the previous bylaw that was adopted on Jan. 28, which made the City of New Westminster the first municipality in the B.C. to apply to existing rental housing stock a new rental residential tenure zoning authority, according to a city press release. “Rental residential tenure zoning is the right tool for protecting the rental tenure of stratified rental buildings,” Emilie Adin, the city’s director of development services, said in the release. “It is being utilized as part of a suite of policies and tools that we’re exploring within the city’s authority and financial capacity to address the need for building and retaining the stock of affordable rental housing, and in particular addressing the impacts and prevalence of renovictions.” At the original public hearing, opponents of the bylaw told council the province’s new rental residential tenure zoning should only be used as a tool to encourage new rental housing supply – not as a penalty or preservation tool. They questioned the legality of the city’s decision to downzone their properties.

Regional recycling centre touted as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for residents Continued from page 1 Davis said the city’s goal is to keep the recycling depot open until the new regional centre opens next year, but the city will have a better understanding of how construction of the New Westminster Aquatic and Community Centre will impact access to and from the recycling depot once a construction manager is in place. “There are some unknowns at this point.The questions that people are having are, when specifically is this happening? Well, we can’t tell you,” he said. “Obviously we have had some people who have expressed the fact they are upset by the fact the depot is moving.” In a letter to the city, Metro Vancouver said the “weighted av-

erage driving time” in kilometres from New West to the new facility is 5.5 kilometres, which is less than the Tri-Cities (Coquitlam – 9.1 km; Port Coquitlam – 11.2 km; and Port Moody – 11.1 km). In terms of the “weighted average driving time” in minutes, New Westminster is 14 minutes from the facility that’s just across the Bailey Bridge and the Brunette industrial area, while Coquitlam (21 minutes), Port Coquitlam (25 minutes) and Port Moody (27 minutes) are farther away. Metro Vancouver is aiming to complete the new $70.2-million Coquitlam Transfer Station in mid-2020.With its 30-year lease set to expire on the current site on United Boulevard, Metro Vancouver has started construction of a

new transfer station about one kilometre away from the existing fa-

cility. According to Metro Vancouver,

the existing Coquitlam Transfer Station is open 363 days per year and is visited by more than 200,000 customers annually. “The new transfer station replacement will be a full-service transfer station and recycling centre for residential, commercial and municipal waste haulers,” said a statement from Metro Vancouver. “Traffic will be segregated into large and small vehicle queues and the recycling area will be three times bigger than it is now with room to expand.” “With the timing of this opportunity that was brought forward with Metro Vancouver and the cost for operations savings for us, it seems to make a lot of sense,” Davis said. “This is going to be like a one-stop shop.”

City RECONCILIATION

Tsilhqot’in praise city for Begbie decision Theresa McManus tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

Details still have to be worked out on when the Judge Begbie statue will be removed from Begbie Square and where it will go. On May 6, city council voted 4-2 in favour of removing the Judge Begbie statue from in front of the courthouse on Carnarvon Street. “We will wait for information from staff about the process of removal,” Coun. Nadine Nakagawa said in an email to the Record. “I don’t know the logistics associated with moving and storing a statue.” As per the motion approved by council, the city will also: engage in a conversation with the Tsilhqot’in Nation about the history and legacy of Judge Begbie and the effects his decisions had on generations of their people; work with the city’s museum and archives, the community and the Tsilhqot’in Nation to find

an appropriate place for the statue; and engage in a process of consultation to find an appropriate place to tell the history of the Chilcotin War. Nakagawa, who put forward the motion, said the city needs to respond to a request by the Tsilhqot’in chiefs in 2017 to remove all namesakes of Judge Matthew Baillie Begbie, who was the first chief justice of the Colony of British Columbia. In 1864, Begbie presided over a murder trial in Quesnel of five Tsilhqot’in chiefs who were found guilty and sentenced to hang.The following year, a sixth chief, Chief Ahan, was tried, convicted and sentenced to death in New Westminster – in a spot not far from where the statue stands. In 2014, the provincial government apologized to the Tsilhqot’in Nation for the wrongful execution of the six chiefs. In 2018, the federal government fully exonerated the chiefs of any

wrongdoing. The Tsilhqot’in National Government has commended city council’s decision to remove the statue from in front of the courthouse, saying it represents a legacy of pain and tragedy that’s still felt to this day. “From the Tsilhqot’in perspective, Judge Begbie

represents a legacy of betrayal, pain and tragedy for our people,” Chief Joe Alphonse, tribal chair of the Tsilhqot’in National Government, said in a press release. “Removing Judge Begbie’s statue from public spaces does not remove him from history, but rather recognizes our history and our

experience as Indigenous peoples.We are grateful for the leadership shown by the New Westminster city council and for the understanding and compassion for our people that this decision reflects.” A statement from the Tsilhqot’in National Government states removing

the statue allows for healing and reconciliation to take place for Tsilhqot’in communities and reflects an era of cultural understanding and appreciation for the Tsilhqot’in and all Indigenous peoples. Blair Fryer, the city’s manager of communications and economic development, said staff are awaiting further direction from council on when the statue should be removed from Begbie Square and where it will go until a new home is found. While council has approved a motion to remove the statue from its current home on Carnarvon Street, no motion has been considered regarding renaming of Begbie Square or Begbie Street. “For renaming streets and public spaces, there are a number of place names in New West that are named after what are now controversial figures, and it is worth considering them together,” Nakagawa said.

Trustee on medical leave Cayley Dobie editorial@newwestrecord.ca

New Westminster school trustee Mary Lalji is on medical leave for an undisclosed illness, the Record has learned. Lalji, who was re-elected in November to her second term as school trustee, has missed all committee and school board meetings since February.The last meeting she attended was Jan. 29. In a statement to the Record, Lalji said, out of respect for her family, she did not want to disclose specific details of her leave. “I’m finding it extremely difficult coping with the challenges of my role at the board table and my new health concerns,” she added. “My doctor felt it would be more beneficial for me to deal with my medical situation without the additional and unnecessary stress in my role as a trustee.” Lalji admitted she is concerned she is letting down the people who voted for her but reassured the public that the board can continue

Board chair Mark Gifford confirmed Lalji is on medical leave and has been since February. “It’s unfortunate that Mary’s been unable to participate in the last few months, as there’s so much really tremendous work happening within the dis-

trict and at the board table,” he said. “We want her well and her to feel good about her ability to participate.” Lalji couldn’t say when she would be returning to the board table but that she was waiting for more information from her doctor. Lalji is still receiving her trustee stipend. She told the Record she uses the money “to contribute to different school and PAC initiatives such as, the high school musical, students going to camp, PAC fundraising for musical instruments and other programs.”

Opinion OUR VIEW

The SOFI document info should stay the way it is

No one likes to talk about their pay.We get that. But it seems extreme to stop publishing names of city and school district workers making more than $75,000 a year in the annual statement of financial information (SOFI). It’s true that when SOFI was introduced to provide the public with more transparency on government spending, $75,000 was considered an executive wage. Now, it’s a comfortable salary, but not exorbitantly so. It could be argued

the threshold for publishing names should be raised to $100,000, given that average annual salary for Canadian employees is about $51,000. City staff in the City of Burnaby wanted that threshold raised, but council voted it down. Eliminating names altogether would remove an important indicator of decision-making at the highest echelons of civic office. Each year, media outlets publish the names and salaries of the top earners in city halls and school board

offices, providing taxpayers with a glimpse of compensation and whether citizens are getting good value. For example, taxpayers learned last year that in School District 43 in Coquitlam, the highest wage earner was a former secretary treasurer who hadn’t been at the board office in two years. If his name hadn’t been posted along with the information, it would have been missed and the public wouldn’t have known the cost of his severance.

Such information would not be available if New Westminster council is successful in getting support from B.C. councillors for a resolution asking the province to replace names with positions.They argue the information puts people at risk for public ridicule and bullying in this age of social media, although they didn’t provide examples of that actually happening. We argue the names as well as the positions should be cited in the document for transparency. It’s more

important than ever for taxpayers to see what they’re shelling out for, and for whom. At a time when false claims can spread like weeds on social media and the practice of journalism is in jeopardy, it’s important to recognize information needs to be transparent and open disclosure of publicly funded salaries, with names, is reasonable. Too often, important information is under wraps, requiring costly Freedom of Information requests, and other efforts to glean details

that shed light on important issues.The SOFI report is one of the last open documents that provide journalists and taxpayers with important information. It includes statements about severance agreements, council remuneration and expenses, suppliers of goods and services of over $25,000, and audited financial statements, all important details. Removing the names would just be one more step on the slippery slope towards secrecy.

MY VIEW KEITH BALDREY

Green wave isn’t coming this fall The recent breakthrough victory by the federal Green Party in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith byelection was certainly impressive, but it is by no means indicative of some kind of Green wave just waiting to roll across the country. To hear Green leaders such as Elizabeth May and AndrewWeaver tell it, the win by new MP Paul Manly will be the first of many in the October election. While there is certainly a good chance the Greens will add numbers to their twoperson caucus, some reality has to be injected into the conversation. First, this was a byelection - the kind of vote where the outcome is essentially meaningless since it would have no impact in determining which party is in government. It has also been called the “mulligan” byelection since voters in this Island riding will be given another chance to elect their MP in just a few months. Byelections usually have low voter turnouts and for this one just 40 per cent showed up – meaning about 35,000 people who voted in 2015 opted to stay home and sit this one out. It’s safe to presume most, if not all, of those non-participants will show up at the ballot box in October, which means trying to read too much into this result is fraught with peril. May has used her party’s victory as proof that fighting climate change is the top political issue for voters. I want this to be true, but the

result actually shows the opposite. If that issue were indeed so important to people in the riding, surely the Green vote would have ballooned from 2015 levels. Instead, it only went up by a fraction – about 1,200 votes. In other words, the biggest issue in that riding by far was apathy, not fighting climate change. Still, there is no question the victory has given the Green brand a big boost and enlarged the party’s profile beyondVancouver Island. In addition, if May can persuade ex-Liberal attorney-general JodyWilsonRaybould to run under the Green banner in the fall (and maybe convince fellow disaffected Liberal Jane Philpott to do the same) her party stands to pick up a few more seats in the next election. There is also the possibility the party morphs into a protest party of sorts, where those dissatisfied with the established parties go to register their scorn with the status quo. However, that is unlikely to happen as long as the Greens keep essentially “green” issues their top priorities. The last Angus Reid poll pegged Green support at just 11 per cent nationally. It will undoubtedly be greater in parts of B.C., Ontario and the Maritimes in the fall. But it’s still not a Green wave. At least not yet. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC

New school a pleasant surprise After a bit of a surprise announcement from the provincial government, a former blueberry field in Queensborough was set to become the site of a new middle school by 2000 or 2001. In late November, the province announced it would spend $5.1 million for planning and construction of a new 375-student middle school by Ryall Park.The school district had already gotten funding for a new 675-student middle school by Terry Hughes Park (since named École Glenbrook Middle School) just a year earlier, so the second announcement was a pleasant surprise. “We thought that would be it for a while,” said trustee James Janzen.

Some NewWest streets are like the Indy 500 Editor: Speeding in New West is out of control. Seriously, I live on River Drive on 20th Street. The traffic down here from FRPD and Southern Rail ranges from speeding excessively to at times running the stop signs up to 50 miles an hour – not exaggerating. The police do crap all, except for a couple of hours a month to catch these minions. (Drivers have) no respect for the families with kids and no sidewalks. We will wait until somebody gets seriously hurt or dead. Come and watch the Indy 500. Stewardson Way is so bad for excessive speeding, the police can’t keep up - we need more police and enforcement. Gary Prokovich, New Westminster

Removing the Begbie statue would be a mistake Editor: The removal of symbols of what we now know to be an injustice is a mistake and, although I respect city council for taking an audacious step, removing these figures without community engagement only compounds the mistake. It is impossible to go forward, to transform our behaviour, to celebrate change, if we hide history. It is because of this history that we strive to be better, to behave in a more humane manner and to seek truth and justice. During the 1800s, when Britain was trying to

colonize the rest of the world, there were many atrocities and, unfortunately, coupled with the wild abandon of gold rush fever, I have no doubt that Judge Begbie rushed to judgment. Horrors and atrocities on anyone or any group of people should be condemned at every opportunity. The removal of symbols is to confuse forgiveness with asking people to forget. To suggest that anyone should forget is to continue the abuse; however, we must make every effort to not allow the horrors of the past define our future, especially when decisions were made with available information and practices of that day. Think about it, with all our science and CSI acumen, it took us until 2014 to exonerate the Chilcotin leaders. We have to ask, why did it take so long? What will happen to Begbie Street? If we do not accept that conflict exists, there is no reason to strive for transformation and acceptance of each other. My recommendation, instead of removing these symbols, is to add a plaque briefly describing who these people were and how we have come together in spite of them. I think this would be a testimony of our learnings, transformation, intercultural acceptance and practice of inclusivity. Anyone who would like to continue this conversation should come to the New Westminster Community Action Planning Table on May 28 beginning at 7 p.m. We meet at the Centennial Community Centre (near Canada Games Pool). Admission is free. Angela Sealy, New Westminster Editor’s note: Angela Sealy was an independent candidate in the 2018 New Westminster city council election.

City FACILITIES

Have your say on city borrowing

PLANT SALE

Theresa McManus tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

If you have concerns about the city’s plan to borrow millions to fund the New Westminster Aquatic and Community Centre, now is the time to speak up. Earlier this year, the city initiated a process related to the funding of the future aquatic and community centre, which is estimated to cost from $103 to $114 million, depending on its final design.While the city has applied for grants from senior levels of government, it’s also in the midst of a process to authorize the city to borrow up to $93.6 million to build the facility. “It is important to note (a loan authorization) bylaw provides the authority to borrow, it does not commit the city to borrowing the full amount,” said a report to council. “Having the LA bylaw identify the maximum amount will provide project flexibility until such time as there is certainty around the award of grant funding for the NWACC project.”

Long Weekend 3 Day Sale! May 18th, 19th & 20th, 2019

Big price tag: A rendering of the planned aquatic centre.

The city is in the midst of an “alternative approval process” in which electors are being asked if they are opposed to the proposed loan authorization bylaw. With the number of eligible electors in New Westminster estimated to be 50,616, the city is able to approve the bylaw unless 10 per cent (5,061) voters sign a form indicating they don’t want the city to proceed with the bylaw. The deadline to complete alternative approval process elector response forms and return them to city hall is

Monday, June 10 at 7 p.m. In addition to the New Westminster Aquatic and Community Centre, the city has also taken steps to borrow money to build a new electrical substation in Queensborough. The city received 31 responses related to a recent alternative approval process that authorizes the city to borrow up to $30 million to build a new electrical substation in Queensborough.That fell far short of the 5,061 electors needed to stop the city from borrowing the funds.

Community EVENTS

May Day festivities return to Queen’s Park Janaya Fuller-Evans

editorial@newwestrecord.ca

It’s that time of year – the Royal Suite has been selected and the children have learned all their steps. May Day is approaching and New Westminster students are ready to participate, according to Karim Hachlaf, superintendent of schools. “It’s a great communitywide event,” he said. “The student audience packs the stands.” There are also community members, parents, council members and other politicians, such as NDP MLA Judy Darcy, who come out to see the festivities on May Day. The event kicks off on Wednesday, May 22 at 11:20 a.m. when the students march into Queen’s Park Stadium.The Royal Procession makes its entrance at 11:30 a.m. “We’re really maintaining a similar schedule to what we did last year at Queen’s Park with a few additions,” Hachlaf said. New elements this year include a police dog demo and hip-hop dancers, he said. And this year, the New Westminster Secondary School Jazz Band will be playing, he added. Last year they weren’t available, but they have been a part of the event in years past. “We’re thrilled to have our jazz band perform as well,” he said. The Royal Suite from this year and last year play a large part, with the retiring Royal Suite introduced just after noon, and the retiring Royal Consort and May Queen making speeches soon after. The traditional maypole

dances are held at 12:25 p.m., with more than 200 Grade 4 students participating this year, Hachlaf said. The crowning ceremony is at 12:50 p.m., and the incoming Royal Consort and May Queen will each make a speech afterwards. More than 200 Grade 3 students are participating in the folk dances at the end of the event. “We are still running with traditional folk dancing for our Grade 3s and maypole dancing for our Grade 4s,” Hachlaf said. “All of our schools are participating.” This year marked a change for the annual event, as students learned their dance moves after school instead of during class time. “There was a significant transition from instructional time to non-instructional time,” Hachlaf said. Those who were interested in participating in the dances and were able to attend lessons after school will be part of the performances at May Day, while those who weren’t will be cheering from the crowd, he said. “We wanted to ensure the importance of the tradition,” he explained. The event wraps up at 1:20 p.m. after the singing of God Save the Queen. For those adults who want to celebrate May Day early and get in the spirit before the actual event, there is also a May Day Social at the Royal City Curling Club on Saturday, May 18 from 7 to 11 p.m. It is hosted by the New Westminster May Day Community Association. There will be dancing and socializing, as well as a maypole.There will also be food and a cash bar.

ROYAL TRADITION: The maypole dance is always a highlight of May Day festivities at Queen’s Park Stadium. This year’s event is set for Wednesday, May 22, starting at 11:20 a.m. with the students marching in. PHOTO RECORD FILES

Mother’s Day ban has taken political correctness too far Mommy’s GROUNDED Bianca Bujan

Accepting the “Hallmark holiday” that is Mother’s Day took some time. At first, I didn’t like the money-grab aspect of splurging on overpriced flowers or the forced sentiment of celebrating a mother’s love only once a year. But the day grew on me. The looks on the faces of my children as they presented their handcrafted gifts to me on Mother’s Day turned my bitterness sweet. I became a sentimental suck. From a butterfly made of handprints to a painted flower pot to a handmade necklace, I’ve kept those keepsakes from my kids and now look forward to the surprise gifts. In 2017, a school letter went viral after it was shared on Facebook, explaining that the students of an ele-

mentary school in Mission would no longer be crafting cards and gifts for Mother’s Day.The school was opting out in order to support those children who may not have a mother to celebrate. Since then, many schools have joined in on the ban. This year, our children’s school decided to do the same. While I’m sure they’ve made the change with good intentions, it has me wondering if we’re taking political correctness too far. Is eliminating everything really the best way to create a more inclusive society? Our school’s sports days were previously scrapped, replaced with non-sport “fun days.”The school felt it wasn’t fair for those lessathletic students to compete in an environment that rewarded those more athletically inclined.The “everyone’s a winner” mentality spread to extracurricular sports teams, awarding medals to every team play-

er and eliminating posted scores. Now, Mother’s Day crafts are no longer and for a similar reason – cancelling anything that could potentially make some children upset. Not every child is an athlete, but why can’t we celebrate those who are? Families come in all shapes and sizes (as a child of a blended family, I know this to be

Let’s talk to our children about the realities of life

true), so why can’t we celebrate our differences instead of cancelling all celebrations and disguising it as inclusion? Conversations should be had, not cancellations made. Banning the act of celebrating moms and dads through giving crafty gifts and clever quotes is hardly

the way to celebrate family diversity. Instead, we should change the conversation and make the day about those who care for us in a broader sense. Why not use this holiday as an excuse to highlight families of varying compositions instead of cancelling the celebrations altogether? Wouldn’t calling it “Caregiver’s Day” be an easier way to make the holiday more inclusive? Couldn’t the teachers change the language that they use if the topic is sensitive for one of their students? In life, there will be wins and losses.There will be celebrations and sadness. Let’s talk to our children about the realities of life and how to deal with those varied emotions, not toss everything aside that could potentially make them cry.

HYACK FESTIVAL & PARADE Everyone loves a Parade 48TH

The Hyack international Parade is a fun spectacle to be watched and enjoyed by the whole family. Parades have been held in New Westminster since the mid-1800s, celebrating any auspicious occasion such as May Day, civic events, etc. One such New Westminster float in the 1949 P.N.E. Opening Day Parade had our very own May Queen suite on a floral festooned float. This year, our May Queen Suite still cheers and waves to the hometown citizens of New Westminster during the Hyack International Parade. Parades continue to attract families and friends to the Royal City from neighbouring communities and the United States. Since the 1970s our parade has been known as the New Westminster Hyack International Parade organized by volunteers of the Hyack Festival Association with the support of the City of New Westminster. This is our 48th year and this year’s theme, “Shining Bright in the Royal City”, was created by the current Hyack President, City of Vancouver Archives, CVA 180-1550, Artray Limited photographer. Lili De Capite. The Festival’s spectacular award-winning float celebrates what New Westminster has been and what will be in the future years to come. The most important thing is the sense of community that exists in our city because “events are essential” to a community identity. The parade has drawn a wide variety of entries. The Vancouver Police Department Motorcycle Drill Team will precede the parade and there will be bands marching in their distinctive uniforms, and magnificently decorated floats. This year’s Parade Marshall is New Westminster’s own Graham Wardle from Heartland. Other dignitaries will be present, including Miss New Westminster 2019, Natasha Sing with her Hyack Ambassador Leadership Team. So come out early, stake out your place at the curb on the parade route to ensure you don’t miss any of the great action this year!

Parade Marshal

New Westminster native, Graham Wardle, star of CBC’s, Heartland, will be this year’s honourary parade marshall for the 48th annual Hyack International Parade. A 2004 NWSS graduate, Graham was a captain and starting player for the re-instated Hyack Football program in 2003 and is a proud supporter of Hyack Football to this day. He attended Capilano University’s Motion Picture and Production Program where he wrote and directed his first film, “The Baguette Thief.” Graham worked on various TV series; The X-Files, The Addams Family, Supernatural and independent films before landing the lead role of Ty Borden, on the CBC pilot project, Heartland, in 2007. Today, he continues to portray Ty Borden in the award-winning TV series, Heartland. Now, in its 13th season, it is CBC’s longest-running hour-long family drama, is shown worldwide and can be seen locally Sundays at 7 pm. Graham was recently one of the top three finalists in the Canadian Screen Awards for the Cogeco Fund Audience Choice Award for his outstanding work on Heartland.

HYACK FESTIVAL & PARADE 48TH

President’s Message Lili De Capite

Lili De Capite and first man

As president 2019 I am greatly honoured for the opportunity to represent the Hyack Festival Association and hope you will join us as we celebrate our 48th year! The Hyack Festival is one of the oldest festivals in the province. Since 1971, our association has organized a wide range of events to help preserve our history and traditions in New Westminster. Throughout the twelve months, we continue to offer free events where community members of all ages are provided with many opportunities to participate in a fun filled atmosphere. I’d like to personally give credit to the amaz-

ing volunteers who support our community events year after year. This includes our 2019 board of directors and members of our over 12 committees. Our Hyack family is built on a foundation of shared dedication and glowing excitement. We are a dynamic group with a contagious community spirit, which enables us to grow and expand by attracting those around us! We like to include our community and foster a positive image, while also recognizing our time-honoured traditions and treasured community spirit which truly make us shine while promoting the city both locally and internationally. This years chosen theme, “Shining Bright in the Royal City” recognizes and reflects the rich diversity of our community while paying tribute to the many people who keep this city so unique by volunteering hours upon hours to sustain our rich cultural traditions and recreating the city’s past. New Westminster has been nicknamed “The Royal City” since Queen Victoria named the city herself back in the year 1859. The residents here take a lot of pride in their many historic traditions, including the longest running May Day celebration in the Commonwealth for almost 150 years! Each month of May, for a consecutive 48 years, Mayors of the Royal City have given special time in their chambers to recognize and officially proclaim the beginning of what is called “Hyack Week” from May 19-26th in

UPTOWN LIVE IS GONNA GIVE IT TO YA!

New Westminster where many organizations in the city have planned annual activities such as the Hyack Swim Meet, Hyack Festival Scouts Camp, Hyack Lacrosse Tournament, Hyack Lawnbowling Tournament, Hyack Majors Baseball Tournament, NWPL Hyack Teen Read Award and many others. The Hyack International Parade is an important event for New Westminster and provides a sense of community, bringing together 100 entries, thousands of individual participants and tens of thousands spectators. Some of the exciting events during Hyack Week include the award winning international parade, street festival, May Day tea and picnic, Anvil and cannon salutes, a rose planting ceremony and hospitality banquets, but its yearly pride rests in the 26 foot parade float built by Gary Turner Display Ltd to hold the newly announced Miss New Westminster and her fellow Hyack Ambassadors in their festive float gowns complete with sashes and crowns! This year’s themed parade float was revealed on May 6th at City Hall. Following the 48th annual Hyack Festival Association parade on May 25th at 11am, the

Hyack parade float will appear in 11 more parades throughout the Pacific Northwest and into the Okanagan. Along with our International awards received each year for our participation in the above travelled parades and festivals, Hyack Festival Association is proud to have received numerous community awards over the years including community spirit and volunteer awards and recognition from the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce, various business groups and the Record Readers Choice awards. Myself along with my family, Rio, Talia, Chanel and Paris would like to personally invite all of you to join us in celebrating our traditions in this beautiful city we call home. Take some time out of your busy lives and bring your families, friends and pets to this year’s annual Hyack Festival events. Show some respect to the hard working volunteers in our city who are doing all of this out of pure community spirit. We aim to please and I’m certain you will enjoy yourselves while you celebrate the biggest party you’ll ever experience in your own backyard! We hope to see there!

For more information people can visit the Hyack website at hyackfestival.com and apply to volunteer during Hyack Week from May 19-26th.

HYACK FESTIVAL & PARADE 48TH

Longest running youth program in our city

Hyack Ambassador Leadership Program The original New Westminster Hyack Ambassador Leadership Program is one of the oldest youth programs in our Royal City. Over 60 years of history and experience has developed into a well-organized, supported, recognized and cherished youth opportunity in our community. Participants learn professional

and practical skills, partake in volunteer opportunities, and stand to collectively earn over $7,000 available in post-secondary scholarships, announced at the annual “Evening of Stars” Awards Gala. Participation in the program involves absolutely no cost to any participants or their families and is inclusive of all young women who reside in New Westminster that meet the age requirements. The Hyack Ambassador man-

date is “Serving our Community – Representing Our City” and, as a program, it is to encourage and support all participants to:

“Be a Hyack Ambassador and develop your best S.E.L.F. through – Service, Education, Leadership & Fun” With their extensive training and knowledge of our city, they will be “Shining Bright in the

Royal City” for 2019! As young women today, the world the Hyack Ambassadors face can be uniquely challenging and overwhelming, as they may be confronted with societal pressure, discrimination, and disbelief. However, as they continue to be involved, and to stand up for what they believe in, the future is also very bright. The New Westminster Hyack Ambassador Leadership Program provides participants a “safe place” regardless of background, religion, politics, sexual orientation, or race. Across North America, today’s Ambassador Programs are opportunities for young women to, first and foremost, be proud of being women. To bring their best selves to those around them, to give them life-long connections and skills, and to provide a foundation for whatever they choose to do in life – they develop to be their very best self! Applications for the 2020 New Westminster Hyack Ambassador Leadership Program will be available June 1 on-line at hyackfestival.com under the ambassador tab or call the Hyack Festival office at 604522-6894 for more information.

Congratulations and thank you to these wonderful Hyack Ambassadors for our city for 2018 & 2019 L – R: Aleksandra Novosiltseff 2019, Meghan Conner 2019, Kate Haberl, 2019 Alexandra Volodarets 2019, Charissa Vanags - Hyack Princess 2019, Natasha Sing - Miss New Westminster 2019, Talia Monno - Miss New Westminster 2018, Chanel De Capite - Hyack Princess 2018, Emma Canil 2018, Isha Sandhu 2018, Sierra Pitkin 2018, Leah Binns 2018.

The most exciting pre-show

Every year the Vancouver Police Department Motorcycle Drill Team ventures outside their jurisdiction to roam the streets of New Westminster. So what brings them to our fair city…the search for Vancouver’s most wanted, investigating a cold case, cracking down on traffic violators? Every fan of the Hyack Festival knows that this year and every year, the VPD Motorcycle Drill Team kicks off the Hyack International Parade. Canada’s foremost escort team entertains children and adults with a dazzling display of riding precision. Employing Harley Davidson Electra Glide Motorcycles, the Drill team is comprised of active members of the Vancouver Police Traffic Enforcement Unit. Drill Team activities are separate from their regular work and members join the team on a voluntary basis. For all their good work, the Hyack Festival Association has awarded the VPD Motorcycle Drill Team with the 2019 Supporter of the Year award. “It was a privilege to present the Drill Team with one of our most prestigious awards”, said Hyack Festival President, Lili De Capite. “They’re always a fan favourite and we couldn’t ask for a better way to kick off the parade.” Don’t miss the VPD Motorcycle Drill Team’s exciting display of high speed manoeuvres 10:30 am, Saturday May 25th.

LAST MONDAY AT THE MOVIES

Green thumbs: The New Westminster Horticultural Society sold out of plants at its annual plant sale, which moved to a new location at New Westminster Secondary School this year.

The New Westminster Horticultural Society’s annual plant sale was a rousing success. The society, which is celebrating its 85th anniversary in 2019, held its annual plant sale on May 4 at New Westminster Secondary School. “It was quite the horde at the start. Some people lined up a half hour early but, in fairness to those

who arrived at our stated starting time of 10 a.m., we did not open early,” said longtime member Audrey Barnes. “The sale was a great success. We were sold out by 2 p.m. We think it boils down to us having good plants and people knowing our plants are good.” While leftover plants are usually sold at a mini plant sale for members at the

club’s first meeting after the sale, gardeners aren’t totally out of luck. “Not all plants are ready for our public spring plant sale. Throughout the year, members bring in what they want to share from their gardens,” Barnes said. “These sales have proven very popular with the membership – another reason to become a NWHS member.”

jmaclellan@newwestrecord.ca

A renowned Persian folk music group is coming to New Westminster. Rastak is onstage at the Massey Theatre on Saturday, May 18 at 8 p.m. “The educated young members of Rastak Group take their audiences on a journey to every corner of Iran with their performance,” says a write-up about the show. They’re on a mission to present the folk music of Iran around the world, to people of all backgrounds – so Persian and non-Persian audiences alike are encouraged to turn out to take in the performance. Tickets are available through www.vtixonline. com. AGING DRAMATICALLY Golden Age Theatre at Century House is inviting everyone in to enjoy its next theatre production. Sunshine Place is playing at Century House (620

Eighth St., in Moody Park) on Friday, May 24 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, May 25 at 1 p.m. (Doors open a halfhour before showtime.) The production is described as a “fun and relaxing visit with staff and residents of this home for independent seniors.” Expect some hilarity as staff and residents handle some “unusual situations.” The Century House Choir is also performing for the occasion. Refreshments will be served at intermission. Tickets are $8 for Century House members, or $10 for non-members.You can buy them at the front desk of Century House. BOOK LAUNCH SET Here’s one for the lit lovers. Gwynne Hunt is holding a book launch and reading on Sunday, May 26 for her new book Unlocking the Tin Box, published by Silver Bow Publishing.The book is the true story of growing up in a dysfunctional family in Vancouver in the 1950s and 1960s and is described

as “emotional, evocative, raw yet quite lovely indeed.” Books will be available for purchase at the launch, which will be hosted by New West poet laureate Alan Hill in Room 417 at the Anvil Centre, 777 Columbia St. It runs from 2 to 4 p.m. FILM SCREENING Love film? Check out the work of New Westminster Secondary School students in an upcoming event at Massey Theatre. The N Dub Film Club is holding a screening event on Monday, May 27 on the big screen at Massey Theatre. Students from grades 10 through 12 will show films created during their school year, covering topics including climate change, mortality, friendship and a humorous take on student life.The event will be MC’d by local author JJ Lee, and it will include a Q&A session with the filmmakers.

The city is once again making plans for open air cinema on Friday evenings in July – including a first-ever adult-oriented night, with concession serving food and liquor until 11 p.m.That one’s happening on July 26 at Westminster Pier Park, where the Eats at the Pier concession stand will be open from 9 to 11 p.m. for the occasion. There’s also an added bonus for the Moody Park screening on July 19: the pool will stay open until 9:30 p.m. so you can swim before the movie starts. The city currently has an online survey up to

poll people on their movie choices for each of the nights. For July 5, at Port Royal Park, it’s either The Emperor’s New Groove or Ice Age. For July 12, in Sapperton Park, you can choose between Kung Fu Panda and The LEGO Movie. For July 19, in Moody Park, you can choose between The Avengers and The Fast and the Furious.

Then, for the 19-plus night at Westminster Pier Park on July 26, you can choose between The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Bohemian Rhapsody.

With the Mann Cup heading back West, the Salmonbellies also enter their historic 130th season. Once again Head Coach Rory McDade will be at the helm with his assistant coaches Ian Patterson, Darren McEwan, and Curtis Palidwor. “Things didn’t end up how we wanted (in 2018) so we are excited to get back to work for 2019” says McDade. “With the additions to our club and the players we are bringing back we are looking forward to the challenge of getting back to the Mann Cup,” says McDade. President and GM Dan Richardson will be back in 2019 and has already made some key changes for the upcoming 2019 season. Prior to the 2019 WLA Junior Draft, Richardson pulled off a trade with the Burnaby Lakers by acquiring transition player Justin Salt. “Justin will add some depth and leadership on our backend” says Richardson. “We’re very excited to have Justin in Red and White”.

Community REAL ESTATE

Residents are moving in to RiverSky tower tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

Residents have started moving in to a prominent new development on New Westminster’s waterfront. In early 2016, Bosa Properties began work on the RiverSky development at 1000 Quayside Dr., which is located next to River Market and Inn at the Quay. The project includes two residential towers containing 519 residences, townhouses facing 10th Street, at-grade retail and six levels of parking. Wayne Vickers, vice-president of development for BlueSky Properties, said the project is on track to be fully finished this summer.While the goal was to complete the project by the end of 2018, he said it was delayed by a “very active and tight construction market.” “The west tower is completed, and homeowner move-ins have commenced,” he said in a

-

statement to the Record. “The company is still working on finishing up the interior of the east tower, the amenity pavilion on the sixth level podium, exterior landscaping at ground level and the McInnes elevator overpass connection.”

Homeowner move-ins have commenced RiverSky will include a breezeway that provides pedestrian access to the waterfront, and stairway and elevator access to the McInnis Street overpass. “There are a few points of access and egress – one point of access to the lower parkade is off of Quayside Drive and another access point to the above ground parkade is off the lane through the breezeway between the towers,”Vickers

said. “There is also an additional egress off the upper parkade to McInnes overpass, which will be an exitonly.” While construction of RiverSky, including pile driving, has also taken its toll on some roads around the site,Vickers said areas that have been affected by construction will be repaved and improved. To date, no announcements have been made about commercial tenants that will be opening in RiverSky.

Community Rocky Point Ice Cream set to open uptown Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

It’s taken Rocky Point Ice Cream 22 years to find its next great location – but it’s found it right here in New West. After getting its start in a small kiosk in the summer of 1997, the Port Moodybased company eventually expanded into a larger space in Rocky Point Park. It’s now hard at work on plans to open a second location in Queen’s ParkWest at 100500 Sixth Ave. “It feels like the right fit for us,” said owner Jamie Cuthbert, who owns the business with his wifeYvette. “It’s a neighbourhood location as well, which is what we like.” The couple first spotted the commercial space near Sixth and Sixth a couple years ago when attending Uptown Live with one of the company’s food trucks. They’re aiming to open on Friday, May 31. When Rocky Point Ice Cream does open in New Westminster, it will carry many of the same products that make its original location a destination: milkshakes, sundaes and other desserts, seasonal and custom cakes, pints of ice cream, and coffee. “For our scooped product, we are going to have a 16- and a 12-flavour showcase so we will have 28 flavours.We will have our seasonal rotations.Whatever we are producing for our store will be there as well,” Cuthbert said. “We will have our basics. After 22 years we know what our top flavours are, so that’s kind of nice.” The shop will also sell some vegan, non-dairy and doggie ice cream. Rocky Point makes its ice cream in batches of three tubs at a time at its production facility in Port Moody, using as many locally sourced ingredients as it can. “Our ice cream – we make everything from

scratch,” Cuthbert said. “We have a proprietary ice cream mix that we get from Meadow Fresh Dairy in Port Coquitlam.We make everything. So if we are doing strawberry, we are boiling down strawberries in our steam kettle and reducing strawberries.” In addition to opening the NewWest shop, the company also recently opened a temporary, seasonal location at Town Centre Park in Coquitlam. In 2020, it’s opening a new, 6,000-square-foot production facility in Port Moody, which is triple the size of its current facility. While they’ve attended events in NewWest with their ice cream trucks Scooper and Rocky, the folks at Rocky Point Ice Cream are anxious to open their new location. “The NewWest community has been really supportive,” Cuthbert said. “Even though we haven’t opened the doors yet, they are inquiring.We are getting some

kids applying.We have had lots of applications coming in.” Having signed a 10-year lease for the space in New West, the Cuthberts are preparing the store for its big opening and looking forward to connecting with residents and local groups. “We love to do fundraising and have our trucks come out to do fundraising. We do a program for school districts where if the PAC is looking to raise money, we bring our truck out and give them back a certain percentage of all of our sale.We do events like that,” Cuthbert said. “We’d like to get in contact with the local lacrosse and hockey associations to do a coupon drive so that when travelling teams are in for a tournament, their goodie bag they can get a two for one and visit us. It increases the exposure.We are not on the main drag, so it will take a bit of time with word of mouth.”

ANVIL SALUTE

WHAT’S HAPPENING? The Ancient and Honourable Hyack Anvil Battery will be carrying on its longtime tradition of doing its “anvil” salute on Victoria Day. In addition to the traditional salute to the memory of Queen Victoria (who named New Westminster) and to the reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, this year’s salute will also recognize the newest member of the Royal Family, The Royal Westminster Regiment, the 130th anniversary of the Salmonbellies and more. HOW LONG HAS THIS TRADITION EXISTED IN NEW WEST? New Westminster has been recognizing Victoria Day since 1859. A newspaper covering that event said “(it) was a day of general rejoicing and festivity in Queensborough (New Westminster), the capital of British Columbia.”

HOW DOES IT WORK? Today, the Ancient and Honourable Hyack Anvil Battery uses an anvil and gunpowder to fire its 21shot salute. Archie Miller, the battery’s Master of Ceremonies, explains what’s happening on the field and offers a series of historical anecdotes between shots. “People are intrigued by what they are witnessing and enjoy hearing the details of the shots,” Miller said in a press release from the Hyack Anvil Battery. “The formal protocol of firing specifically for someone or something catches their attention, and they like to learn more.” DOES THE ANVIL SALUTE ONLY HAPPEN ON VICTORIA DAY? Through the decades, the salute has taken place for “regal and vice-regal visitors,” as we well as other special guests and occasions. While the Victoria Day salute has taken place

Royal City tradition: The Anvil Battery returns to Queen’s Park Stadium on Monday, May 20 with its annual 21-anvil salute to Queen Victoria. PHOTO RECORD FILES

in Queen’s Park for many years, it’s also taken place at city hall and at the foot of Eighth Street. Special salutes have also been held in honour of events like the Olympic torch run in 2010 and the opening of Anvil Centre in 2014. DETAILS, PLEASE: The event is on Monday,

May 20 at Queen’s Park Stadium. The festivities get underway at 11:30 a.m., with a performance by the Band of the Royal Westminster Regiment. A “sighting shot” will be fired at 11:55 a.m., with the actual 21-shot salute starting at noon. Once all of the shots have been fired, you’re welcome to go

out onto the field to get a closer look at the anvil, meet Battery members and take a selfie or two. IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW? You may want to bring earplugs because it’s loud. Very loud! “It’s loud, it’s colourful, it’s free and it’s great fun

for the whole family – well dogs might not be too impressed with the loud booms – maybe best to leave them home,” said the press release. “Oh yes, and turn off your car alarm – the explosions always cause several in the parking lot to go off.”

Community RECREATION

Yes, New West, it’s spray park season again Janaya Fuller-Evans

editorial@newwestrecord.ca

Spray parks are as much a part of summer as sunshine or ice cream cones, and this coming long weekend is the official start date for the popular water features in local parks. Those who played in the city’s wading pools and spray parks during their childhood can bring their kids back to the places they remember. One particular aspect that New Westminster parks and recreation has tried to preserve is the forested areas in local parks, which provide shade and a natural playground, according to Sloane Elphinstone, program coordinator for sports and outdoor recreation. “The forest is maintained in a lot of our parks,” she said. “We encourage people to experience that again.” The most popular spray park in the city is at Queen’s Park, which has many other attractive features as well, Elphinstone pointed out,

Splash: The spray parks at Queen’s Park, at left, and Ryall Park, right, are two popular spots for hot-weather fun. Spray parks will be turned on this weekend. PHOTO RECORD FILES

calling the park “the jewel of the city.” One of the newest features is the universal bathroom, which has individual stalls and a shared handwashing station. It is expected to open on May 18, the same day the spray park starts up. There is also a new skate park, the park’s greenhous-

es, the rose gardens, the concession, and more. But other spray parks in the city are great spots for kids as well, particularly the neighbourhood parks, Elphinstone said. Whereas Queen’s Park is a destination park for people who come from all over the Lower Mainland, Hume and Moody parks are back-

yard parks for the people who live in the area, she explained. “People go there on a daily basis,” Elphinstone said. There are also spray parks in Ryall and Sapperton parks. The city’s last wading pool is in Grimston Park. All of the city’s other wading pools have been re-

placed by spray parks over the years, as wading pools must be staffed for the safety of the children playing there, unlike spray parks. The water for the parks is fresh water, which is standard across the board, according to Elphinstone.To conserve water, the spray parks have manual activation buttons, with water

spraying in three-minute intervals. “If there’s nobody in the park, no water is being used,” Elphinstone said. If new spray parks are built, new ways to capture and repurpose the water will be considered, she added, but there are no new spray parks planned at this time.

NEW LISTING

Five ways parents can help their kids feel comfortable at the dentist 1. Be a positive role model. Children frequently learn by example. If they see their parents being diligent about dental care, they’re more likely to embrace proper oral hygiene. Bring children to your own dental appointments so they understand the process and become familiar with the type of equipment used. 2. Stick to the first-tooth milestone. Take your child to the dentist on or about when his or her first tooth erupts. Early dental visits will get kids used to going to the dentist and prevent minor problems that may lead to more complex dental issues. 3. Read books about the dentist and role play. Information can allay kids’ fears about the dentist. Read books together about dental visits and act out possible scenarios with your kids. Give kids toy dental health tools and have them practice exams on you and vice-versa. 4. Be supportive and instill trust. Avoid telling your child that everything will be okay. If a procedure is needed, this could affect his or her trust in you and make the dental office an even greater source of anxiety. Simply be supportive and offer a hand to squeeze or a hug if your child needs you. 5. Consider using your dentist. Some parents like to take their children to a pediatric dentist, but it may not always be necessary. Many family practices cater to patients of all ages, and the familiarity of the office may help make children feel more comfortable. Speak with your dentist about the ages they see.

JUNIOR LACROSSE

New West gives undefeated Adanacs good test After losing first two games of the B.C. Junior A lacrosse season, ’Bellies begin to look like potential challengers Dan Olson

dolson@newwestrecord.ca

A one-goal loss to the defending national champions was as good a sign the New Westminster Salmonbellies could expect during a rough start to the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League season. The ‘Bellies showed Tuesday that their first two losses of the season were more a reflection of the moment than a foretelling of the future. Coquitlam edged New West 8-7, on the strength of a two-goal outburst with five minutes left in the third period. Prior to that, the game saw some give and take, but the ‘Bellies displayed some urgency and de-

termination in overcoming a four-goal deficit to deadlock the game early in the third period. After the Adanacs rolled ahead 6-2 on the strength of three straight goals in a span of 2:53 midway through the second frame, New West countered with four consecutive markers of their own, including the first two of the season for last year’s team scoring leader Tre Leclaire. Leclaire’s second of the night, with 13:34 remaining in the third, seemed to cool the offence as both teams settled into a staring match. It wasn’t until the final six minutes when Coquitlam surged ahead again, this time on a goal from Max Semple. Less than 50 seconds later,Trevor Funk upped the Adanacs

advantage to 8-6. New West made it interesting, creeping within a goal on Ben Stewart’s second of the game.They were unable to beat Nate Faccin in the final four minutes to tie it. Faccin ended up turning aside 46 shots in the win, while the ‘Bellies’ Brayden Bell made 40 saves. It came less than a week after New West registered its first win of the season, a 9-7 decision over the Delta Islanders at Queen’s Park. After a sluggish start saw the ‘Bellies fall behind 3-1 after 20 minutes, a likely reading of the riot act between periods by coach Rich Catton produced a five-goal run by the home team.The sniping duo of Erik Maas

and Cam Garlin posted two goals apiece, including four in a span of 1:52 before the midway mark of the second period. Although the Islanders replied with four of their own, retaking the lead with 8:13 left in the game on Haiden Dickson’s powerplay tally, New West would get the last word with three unanswered goals. Kai George tied the game with a shorthanded marker, followed by Maas, with 4:10 remaining, and Drew Andre. Bell was rock-steady in turning back 42 shots. New West, which earlier lost 6-5 to Burnaby, visits Port Coquitlam on Friday, and hosts Langley on May 21, 8 p.m. at Queen’s Park Arena.

WLA changes OT

League adopts three-on-three sudden death

Fans of the Western Lacrosse Association could be the winners this season. Because every regular season game will likely have a winner. The league has announced a new sudden death overtime format for regular season games as well as other rule changes it hopes will make games more exciting and fast-paced. Instead of a 10-minute extra period which full sides play to its timed conclusion even if a winner hasn’t been determined, regular season games that are tied at the end of regulation time will now be decided by an extra fiveminute period in which each team has only three players on the floor plus goalies. WLA commissioner Paul Dal Monte said the new format will be a boon for fans. “We continue to strive to improve the excitement and entertainment value for our fans,” he said in a press release. “Three-onthree lacrosse in a sudden death overtime format will showcase the tremendous speed and skill of our great players.” During the overtime, teams will

be allowed to pull their goalie for a fourth attacker, and – like hockey – when a penalty is called the opposing team will be allowed to add a player to the floor for the duration of the power play. The new format will only be used during regular season games. Playoff games that are still tied at the end of the third period will still be decided by a traditional 5-on-5 contingent of players. A new 30-second shot clock will also be implemented on teams that are playing a man short because of a penalty so they can’t maintain possession of the ball until they return to full strength. This change to the league’s rules brings it in line with procedures used in Ontario’s Major Series Lacrosse as well as this year’s Mann Cup national championship final. The WLA season begins May 23 when the Langley Thunder visit the New Westminster Salmonbellies at Queen’s Park Arena (7:30 p.m.). Coquitlam hosts the Burnaby Lakers at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex at 7 p.m.

Pam Ralston summited her final adventure and passed away May 3, 2019 at the age of 70. Loved and treasured by her husband of 23 years, Don Newsham, sons Robin and Lee (Lily), step daughter Kelsey, (Sheldon), granddaughter Kayla (Kyle), great grandson Jackson, granddaughter Claudia, brother John (Paula), niece Meaghan (Graham), nephew Tim (Ashley), and the Clark and Ralston cousins, she was predeceased by her beloved mother Jean (Moanie) (1999) and father Bill (2001). Pam, diagnosed with cancer in November, died in comfort after a short stay at St Michael’s hospice, New Westminster. A kind, caring, smiling social worker, gardener, traveller and role model she had a profound impact on all. Colleagues benefited from her diligence, dedication and engaging manner. Friends knew and shared the joy and privilege of Pam’s “wise owl” life. An avid orienteer, hiker, skier and biker, doing Kilimanjaro and Mt Blanc treks, she was passionate about family get-togethers, making memories, volunteering, (2 year Indonesia venture), reading, lawn bowling, house parties, nature and the forest. Pam had a special presence, was a treasure and gift, and will always remain in the hearts and minds of family and friends. A memorial celebration service - Pam’s Day, will be held June 20, 2019, 2pm at Glenbrook Park Amenities Centre, New Westminster. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to Pancreas Center BC or BC Cancer Foundation.

MINDFUL MUTTS 4 LEGGED CLIENTEL

A

love for dogs, coupled with savvy business acumen, proved to be the perfect recipe for entrepreneur Stefania Butkovic to succeed and thrive in business. In just three short years, the 34-year-old owner/operator of Mindful Mutts has not only succeeded, Butkovic has gone on to open a second, larger location in downtown New Westminster at 9 Sixth St. In addition, she won the inaugural Level Up My Brand contest – a local initiative with a Dragon Den’s style panel of judges, which aims to promote and assist small businesses in New Westminster. As the grand prize winner, the young businesswoman walked away with a package worth $12,000, which included a new logo design, swag, print and/or digital advertising support, a window wrap, financial advice, business coaching, social media activation, a downtown workspace, an office party catering package, lunch with the Mayor Cote and more.

FROM PET LOVER TO ANIMAL ADVOCATE

Butkovic grew up in a home with two dogs and a few cats.

For reasons she can’t even explain to herself, giving animals a voice became a personal mission. “When I was 12, I started caring about animal welfare,” she says. “I started eating a plant-based diet, while raising money and volunteering for the SPCA.” Fast forward a few years after high school, Butkovic made it a priority to work only for companies that “cared about animal welfare.” “I can’t even pinpoint why I went down this path other than to say I was always a very empathetic child,” she adds. Before long, Butkovic began fostering dogs, which soon turned into a dog-walking business. That affection for animals, most notably dogs, morphed into Mindful Mutts. After launching Mindful Mutts out of her home in 2015, Butkovic later opened a small facility in Sapperton at 305 Cedar St., before opening her second facility in Downtown New West. She has gone from being a one-woman show to hiring six full-time and four part-time staff. Mindful Mutts daycare restricts the number of dogs to 12 to 15 dogs at the Sap-

WORDS OF WISDOM “Our dogs aren’t soldiers; therefore, we don’t command them. We teach them cues using positive reinforcement.” - Stefania Butkovic, Owner/Operator.

perton location, and 18 to 21 at its downtown facility. Using science-based dog training and handling protocols, the award-winning Mindful Mutts offers a host of services, like group dog care and boarding, private dog walking, first aid and dog training, family dog training as well as kids’ workshops. As a member of the Pet Professional Guild: The Association for Force-free Professionals, Mindful Mutts will not accept any dog owner who uses shock collars, prong collars, choke collars, dominance theory and anything else that inflicts fear or pain in an animal. “We only use 100 per cent positive reinforcement methods,” Butkovic insists, adding she gets requests from all over the Lower Mainland to open more locations. “We screen our clients carefully before we accept their pets. Our standards of care are extremely rigorous because we care deeply for the welfare of each dog in our care.” Mindful Mutts is open six days a week by appointment only.
