Y ianni’s Greek Taverna

543 - 6th Street, New Westminster

In ancient Greek mythology, Mediterranean cuisine was the ambrosia for the gods. It still is. Thankfully, you don’t have to fly to Greece to enjoy a succulent dinner, just head to the heart of Uptown New Westminster to Yianni’s Greek Taverna. A local favourite, the multiple award-winning restaurant has been part of the city’s go-to eateries for more than 16 years. The best thing about the Cretan food is its simplicity. No overpowering spices or cooking processes mar the flavour of the fresh. The key to its success, says its manager Pawan, is quality ingredients, consistency and a welcoming atmosphere. “We are a family owned and operated restaurant,” says Pawan. “The Yianni’s family is committed to providing you with an experience you will enjoy and love because we aren’t satisfied unless you are.” Eight years ago Paul Thandi took over the popular Greek restaurant in New Westminster. The restaurant, which seats about 65 patrons inside and 16 comfortably outside on the patio, will conjure up images of a trendy little cafe in Crete. Using the colours of the region, the walls are painted in yellow honey, various shades of brown and the bottom half of the walls in a warm avocado reminiscent of a truly Mediterranean taverna. However, it’s the cuisine that will bring you back. Dinner entrees include classics such as moussaka — baked eggplant and potato in meat sauce and topped with béchamel — roast lamb shoulder, souzoukia — spiced meatballs in tomatoes sauce. Also on the menu is a traditional favourite: chicken, lamb and beef souvlaki dinners served with Greek salad, rice, potatoes and tzatziki. For vegetarians, the eatery offers such palate-pleasing dishes as: vegetable lasagna, dolmathes, spanakopita and tiropita plate (cheese wrapped in filo served with Greek salad, potatoes and rice). The bar is fully licensed so you can sip on a Greek beer, a glass of wine or any number of other specialty drinks, while enjoying traditional Greek cuisine in an ambience of fun and excellent service. Yianni’s GreekTaverna is located at 543 Sixth Street. Visit the website for more information or to make a reservation at www.yiannisnewwest.com or call 604-523-0670.

Pitbull attack injures man, dog

Police look for owners of two pitbulls that were off-leash By Cornelia Naylor

cnaylor@newwestrecord.ca

A bloody encounter with two unleashed pit bulls could have been worse, according to a New Westminster resident who says he and a dog he was walking were viciously attacked on Aug. 11. “I shudder to imagine what the outcome might have been if my wife had been walking Atticus (the dog) instead of me or if children had been in the area,” said the man in a statement to animal control officials. Cam, who didn’t want his full name used, was walking Atticus, his neighbour’s eight-year-old wheaten terrier, on a leash near a grassy area at the east end of Agnes Street, he said, when they turned a corner and saw a man, woman and two unleashed pit bulls lying about 50 to 75 feet away. As one of the dogs charged, Cam said, the man with the pit bulls shouted the dog wasn’t friendly and the woman shouted it was acting aggressively because it was pregnant. “I attempted to keep between the two dogs and was bitten several times by the pit bull,” Cam wrote in his statement. “The pit bull then got Atticus by the back of the neck and viciously attacked him. I tried to pull it off but it had a vicelike grip on Atticus’s neck and would not let go.” He said the second pit bull joined in the attack, and, at one point, Cam, the man and the three dogs were all Continued on page 3

A group that’s been an outspoken opponent of the New Westminster Secondary School replacement project is at it again, this time suggesting stakeholders have been misled about the location of the Chinese cemetery. In a statement, the Canadians for Reconciliation Society, a Chinese Christian-based society that, according to its website, works to promote reconciliation with Canada’s indigenous peoples and to raise awareness of the histories of minority communities in B.C., accused the province of misleading the public about the location of the Chinese burial grounds at the former Douglas Road Cemetery – now the New Westminster Secondary School site. Between 1860 and 1920, the cemetery was the final resting place for the poor, prisoners, stillborn babies and mentally ill patients from Woodlands and Essondale (Riverview). It was also used by the Sikh, First Nations and Chinese communities to inter their dead. Bill Chu, CEO of the reconciliation society, claims that in a report on places of historical significance for the Chinese community, which was released by the province last year, a map outlining the Chinese cemetery on Douglas Road (now Eighth Street) is incorrect. Chu argues the map suggests the burial grounds used by the Chinese community was in the northwest corner of the site near the Continued on page 5

Up Front MERCER STADIUM

New turf on final stretch By Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

It may not look like it today, but the new $1.2 million artificial turf field at Mercer Stadium is on track to be completed within a couple of weeks. The project is moving into the homestretch, with all of the drainage and ground work having been completed. A six-inch layer of the old gravel that assists with drainage has been removed; the field will be topped by new gravel and padding. “That is something new,” said Diane Perry, the city’s manager of community development. “We didn’t have this on the old one. Queen’s Park East doesn’t have it either. It’s just something that’s come out in the last three or four years. It’s an extra layer of padding to give it more absorption. It’s a dense foam material that goes down in squares.”

FINISH LINE IN SIGHT: While football, soccer and field lacrosse teams may be worried the Mercer all-weather field won’t be complete anytime soon, the city says the project is moving into the home stretch and will be done by Sept. 6. PHOTO JENNIFER GAUTHIER Once the padding is laid down, workers from the Quebec-based company will get to work laying down the artificial carpet. “We are on time, but it’s going to be a crunch,” Perry said. “This

company is going to work seven days a week to get it done for us. We were hoping to have everybody on for Sept. 3, but it looks like it is going to be the Tuesday after the long weekend – Sept. 6. It worked

out for all the groups because they said they aren’t playing on the long weekend anyways.” Football, soccer and field lacrosse are some of the activities played on the Mercer field.

The new surface replaced a turf that was 12 years old.The usual lifespan of artificial turf fields is eight to 10 years.

FROM THE FRONT

‘I think there is a public safety issue’: owner Continued from page 1 tumbling on the ground toward the Pattullo Bridge onramp, as the men tried to pry the first pit bull from Atticus’s neck. “After some time, we were able to separate the dogs,” Cam wrote, “and, after looking at Atticus’ neck wounds, it was apparent that the only reason the pit bull let go was because it had torn through all the flesh on Atticus’ neck and had nothing left to hold onto with its teeth.” Reports that an umbrella had been used to pry open the pit bull’s jaws were inaccurate, Cam told the Record. The New West resident said he sustained bites to his right hand, 10 deep bite wounds to his left leg and a deep bite and tear to his left hand, which resulted in tendon damage and required several stitches to close. Atticus, meanwhile, sustained cuts to both sides of his head that required stitches and a 10-inch tear

on his neck that required surgery and the insertion of three drain tubes to repair. The man with the pit bulls apologized and said he would help with the vet bills, Cam said, but then the pair loaded the dogs into a red Toyota and left the scene before police arrived. “We are actively investigating this incident to determine what charges may be appropriate and to identify the owners of the unleashed dogs,” stated New Westminster Police Department spokesperson acting Sgt. Jeff Scott in a press release. “We continue to speak with witnesses and review evidence, and we want to remind dog owners of the bylaw that requires all dogs to be on leash unless in a designated area, such as a dog park or in a fenced yard.” Police are working with New West Animal Services. New Westminster animal control officer Margie Fox said, once its investigation

is complete, the service will decide on enforcement actions, which could range from a warning or fine to more dire consequences. “The most extreme thing that could happen is that we apply for a warrant to seize the dog for humane destruction,” Fox said.

Atticus’s owner, Earl MacDonald, said he is still traumatized by the attack and it’s not something he’s willing to let go. “I think there is a public safety issue,” he told the Record. “I have nothing against the breed. I think this is a case-by-case issue.

Serious damage: Left, Atticus, a wheaten terrier attacked by a pair of unleashed pit bulls earlier this month, needed surgery to close deep wounds on his neck. Right, a neighbour walking Atticus sustained tendon damage to his arm during the attack. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

I know that New Westminster doesn’t discriminate against pit bulls, and I’ve met a lot of pit bulls that are really sweet dogs. I’m not attacking the breed; I’m attacking the owners

right now and their lack of responsibility.” For updates on this story, go to www.newwestrecord.ca

PUBLIC HEARING

6:00PM

6:00 pm on August 29, 2016 in Council Chamber City Hall, 511 Royal Avenue, New Westminster ZONING AMENDMENT BYLAW NO. 7862, 2016 (415 AND 444 EAST COLUMBIA STREET) PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The City of New Westminster has proposed a housekeeping amendment to the Zoning Bylaw to allow pharmacies within the C-CD-3 and C-2L zoning districts. The proposed amendment would affect two properties at 415 and 444 East Columbia Street.

WHAT IS THIS AMENDMENT ABOUT? All commercial retail zoning districts within New Westminster permit the operation of pharmacies. However, the site specific zoning for the subject properties, 415 and 444 East Columbia Street, currently does not. A housekeeping amendment has been proposed to correct this and make the subject sites congruent with adjacent commercial retail properties by including pharmacies as a permitted use. HOW DO I GET MORE INFORMATION? The bylaw and all pertinent material are available for viewing online at www.newwestcity. ca/publicnotices, and also in the Planning Division at City Hall 10 days prior to the Public Hearing, August 15, 2016 to August 29, 2016. City Hall hours are Monday between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., and Tuesday through Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (except statutory holidays). HOW CAN I BE HEARD? The public is welcome to attend the Public Hearing on August 29, 2016 at 6:00 p.m., or send a written submission addressed to Mayor and Council prior to the closing of the Public Hearing.

'I read it in the Record' Local news - Local matters

Cemetery site won’t be touched Continued from page 1 corner of 10th Avenue and Eighth Street when, before 1907, it was closer to Eighth Street and Eighth Avenue. “I think it’s important to show the public that enough is enough,” Chu told the Record. This Saturday, Chu is inviting members of the community to a “symbolic demonstration” starting at 10 a.m.The demonstration is meant to shine a light on the mistreatment of people of colour buried below the high school. People are encouraged to make crosses and headstones out of wood to plant in the lawn at Eighth Street and Eighth Avenue, near where the original Chinese cemetery was located. “We need to provide them (the district) and the public with the facts,” he said. Pat Duncan, superintendent of the NewWestminster school district, admitted the map in the province’s report was incorrect, as Chu suggested, but said the district already knew the boundaries of the Chinese

cemetery. “It shows that the Chinese cemetery is at the top of 10th and Eighth and, in fact, it’s not, and we know that and we never said it was,” Duncan told the Record. In a 2008 report by Golder Associates, commissioned by the school district, it’s noted that the Chinese portion of the cemetery occupied part of the southwest section of the cemetery prior to 1907, at which time the site was declared full. In 1909, the Chinese Benevolent Association leased two acres of land along 10th Avenue.The lease agreement was cancelled in 1914. Today, the site is divided into two areas – the official cemetery site and the Heritage Conservation Act area. While official cemetery area, which encompasses most of the northwest corner of the high school site and a slight portion south of Dublin Street, was well-documented, the heritage site lacks information and documents required to earn official cemetery designation.

But that doesn’t mean the district has plans to raze the heritage site to build its new high school. Duncan is adamant that no construction will take place on any known or possible burial grounds, no matter if they’re inside or outside of the official cemetery area.This means the sites identified by Golder as possible burial grounds used

We’re not taking any chances

for the Chinese cemetery won’t be touched, Duncan added. “We are absolutely, and so is the government, 100 per cent committed to making sure that we do not build on any known burial area,” he said. Before 1907, the Douglas Road Cemetery operated without clearly defined burial plots. Bodies were buried haphazardly and sometimes

less than four feet below ground. Missing documentation makes it nearly impossible for Golder and the school district to definitively say where the bodies were buried between 1861 and 1907. Because of this, the district began exploratory work on the site this summer. It is conducting ground-penetrating radar scans of the heritage site.The information collected from the scans will be analyzed and any signs of human remains will be inspected through a dig. If remains are found, the district will ensure the area is protected from construction, according to Duncan. The district has already declared some areas within the heritage site off-limits to the replacement project, including two small sections near the southwest corner of the site at Eighth Street and Eighth Avenue that were likely used as the Chinese cemetery prior to 1907. “We’re not taking any chances; we will not be building the school in that area,” Duncan said.

Opinion OUR VIEW

Do nothing and reap the bad rewards We never expected to use this editorial space to wax nostalgic about the environmental leadership of former B.C. premier Gordon Campbell, but he at least took the step of instituting a carbon tax. It seems our current premier is intent on fighting climate change without changing much of anything. Christy Clark subsequently froze the carbon tax introduced by her prede-

cessor, as if expecting she could freeze the problem along with it. By some measures, the problem is worsening. B.C.’s own greenhouse gas emissions have risen in the last five years. And while some environmentalists express concern that climate change is an issue of the future, we believe it’s an issue right now. We are beginning to see more crops growing fast-

er and producing smaller yields due to higher temperatures. In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency warns that rising temperatures will make it more difficult to grow food, raise animals and catch fish. By ignoring the problem, we are effectively taking food out of our own mouths. While it would be understandable, if not excus-

It seems the do-nothing approach is designed to not offend any election-year sacred cows able, for Clark to overlook the environment in favour of massive profits, her plan to doggedly pursue an LNG windfall is looking increasingly unlikely. It seems the do-nothing

approach is designed to not offend any election-year sacred cows. If we’re serious about reducing global temperatures, we may have to start by at least being willing to raise our own blood

pressure. At this point, we may have to look to above for help.The federal government is embarking on its own climate change strategy that you can bet will include more than a wait-and-see approach. – Guest editorial from the North Shore News COMMENT ON THIS AT

NewWestrecord.ca

MY VIEW KEITH BALDREY

Environment not a priority Anyone who seriously thought the B.C. government was going to increase the carbon tax in the near future simply hasn’t been paying attention or else doesn’t grasp the many nuances that go into political decision making. Last week, Premier Christy Clark announced the carbon tax would be frozen at its current rate of $30 per tonne of emissions, despite the advice of a government-appointed panel that it should increase steadily and reach $160 per tonne by 2030. As expected, that decision was condemned by various environmental activist organizations, but boosting the tax at this time was simply never in the cards. First of all, an election awaits just nine months from now. Any increase in such a tax would be bound to have negative repercussions on various business and industries and potentially slow down the biggest thing B.C. has going for it compared to the rest of the country: the provincial economy and job creation. As well, Clark herself has made it fairly clear since she became premier that she doesn’t share the same zeal her predecessor, Gordon Campbell, had when it comes to the climate change file. So her government is doing relatively minor things – such as increasing the number of electric vehicles. Clark is very much focused on the economy and job creation (and now too on housing affordability)

and is unlikely to shift her government’s energy into other issues before the next vote. As well, the federal government is contemplating the creation of a federal carbon tax, so it hardly makes sense for B.C. to move on its own tax without seeing what Ottawa has planned. Interestingly, a new poll by the Innovative Research Group shows that when respondents were asked what they favoured most – environmental protection versus the economy and jobs – the economy-linked issues came out decidedly on top (53 per cent to 42 per cent). The gap was even more pronounced among those likely to vote for the B.C. Liberals. The poll also showed that, by a very wide margin, housing affordability is the dominant issue on the minds of the electorate. The environment and climate change rank well back in comparison. And this will partly explain why this fall you can expect to hear a lot of stuff being announced that is tied to increasing the supply of housing in MetroVancouver. Now that the NDP has created the stage for housing to become a hot political issue, look for the B.C. Liberals to take over that stage and elbow their opponents of it. But talk about fighting climate change and boosting taxes to do it? The B.C. Liberals are quite willing to leave that one to the NDP. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

A secretive vigilante group calling itself the Citizens for a Clean Community vowed to rid the Royal City’s west end of property crime, drugs and prostitution with baseball bats and other strong-arm tactics. A man claiming to be the leader of the group – which he said was 22 handpicked members strong – contacted the Record to send a warning to crooks. Police, however, said they had seen no evidence of the group’s existence.

Trudeau has not respected Canada’s indigenous people

NewWest woman asks government to rethink bus pass plan

Dear Editor Re: Expect Site C ripple effect, Opinion, by Keith Baldrey, Aug. 4 edition. The last minute approval (on the Friday of a long weekend) by the Trudeau government of the Site C dam permits was done without the free, prior and informed consent of the indigenous people directly affected. Trudeau and his ministers broke a promise that was at the heart of their election platform: to develop a renewed relationship with indigenous people. Site C is still before the courts and approving permits while this process is ongoing is a cynical betrayal of Trudeau’s stated commitment to respect indigenous rights. Mr. Trudeau has said that “I believe that a respectful, cooperative partnership is not only possible – it is a sacred responsibility inherited from past generations and entrusted to us by future ones.” (Remarks by Justin Trudeau at the Assembly of First Nations 36th annual General Assembly.) What hypocrisy. This action by the Trudeau government is anything but respectful and cooperative. By this decision, it has shown that as far as the Canadian government’s relationship with indigenous peoples is concerned, it is business as usual. Andrew Phillips, Sapperton

Small dogs deserve a safe space to play Dear Editor Many of us small dog owners have expressed concerns about the new dog park at Moody Park and how our little dogs have been trampled on and injured, and we no longer go near the park. We asked to have the dog park fenced off for little dogs and were denied. We asked to have small-dog-only hours at the dog park and were denied. We asked to have the Moody dog park designated for small dogs only, and were denied. These denials were explained that it wouldn’t be fair for the big dogs. Every dog park in the city is open for big dogs. Can the city just give us one dog park for our little ones? Please? We have been to the trial small dog area at Queen’s Park. The concept is excellent and greatly appreciated, but the gate in the fence separating the small dogs from the big dogs has been a huge issue. Folks with their big dogs walk them through the small dog area, and this is causing great anxiety for us old women and our small dogs. It really defeats the purpose of having an area for small dogs. Most of the time when I go there the gate is propped open with a stick or rock. The big dogs are in there and their owners are clearly annoyed when asked to take their dogs into the big dog area. The owners of the big dogs have been verbally abusive and aggressive with us, and along with their big dogs they frighten us. I still go there occasionally, but none of my old women friends from Moody Park will go back until the gate is locked up. Please provide a safe area just for small dogs as soon as possible. With all the little dogs in apartments and condos in the uptown/Moody Park area, something within walking distance is needed. T. Trimble, New Westminster

@GiulianaGraves @DarcyJudy @TheRecord Brave of Karla to speak up. Cuts like this have little effect on a gov’t budget, but a huge impact to those affected Wintyr Walton People just dont get it there never was an increase to your benifits just a shift on how the Bus Funding was spent now users get the option to buy it or not and pocket the money for those that dont. Yes I agree people on disablity should get a fair increase or stop the claw back of CPP disability. But this 77 so called increase is not an increase everyone is still getting the same they are just geting it in actualy money and given the option to spend it as they see fit. Delphine Charmley Karla you are not alone, This is beyond disgusting and disgraceful it is cold and hard hearted. As a mother of 2 young adult sons with disabilities who had paid for their 2016 disability bus pass in Jan, they did so in good faith. They gave their $45 and the government then issued a 2016 bus pass along with thousands of other. This government when they issued that bus pass entered into an agreement to supply a service at that cost of $45, in this case transportation. For the government to come 3/4 way into a service year and want to charge an additional $208 for the remained of the year to use for a pass they already paid for is low and shameful. They give with one hand a $77 mthly increase and in the other hand say oh your $45 yearly pass is gone and now it will cost you $624 yearly or $52 mthly.

Inn at the Quay feels impact of pile driving that they’re driving. Originally, it was supposed to be happening January through April, which is traditionally corporate season. Our guests leave in the morning and come back at the end of the day, so it wouldn’t have had the impact it’s had during peak summer months,” MacKerricher explained.

Noise complaints continue to be a daily occurrence at the Inn at the Quay, according to the hotel’s general manager. Kathy MacKerricher told the Record staff receive up to 10 negative comments a day about the pile driving happening next door, where Bosa Properties’ RiverSky project is taking shape. “It’s definitely a challenge,” she said. “You’re seeing some negativity on TripAdvisor, on Google, some on social media.” MacKerricher added the hotel has had to dole out a “fair amount” of compensation. The city’s construction noise bylaw states “permitted hours” are anytime between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. on weekdays and Saturdays, with Sundays and other holidays excluded. “There’s over 600 piles

We just carry on with our smiles on our face and business is as usual.

“They were delayed for a couple reasons.You don’t really know what’s in the earth and down under there until you get to it.” Despite the noise, the hotel manager said she understands it’s a job that must

get done and she’s been working closely with Bosa. The developer has been very accommodating when it comes to weddings that were already on the books, she noted. In an emailed statement, Daryl Simpson, the company’s vice-president, said his team has been trying to minimize disruption wherever possible. “Unfortunately, this process is a construction reality, but we expect this stage to be complete by October as our construction team is working hard to complete this phase as quickly as possible.We appreciate the patience from our New West community,” the email read. Until then, MacKerricher said a note apologizing for the inconvenience has been placed in each room. “We just carry on with our smiles on our face and business is as usual,” she said.

A landmark that harkens back to New Westminster’s early days is no longer standing tall in the Brow of the Hill. The city’s decision to allow a massive beech tree at the rear of an Ash Street residence to be cut down has devastated some area residents. “We have had a number of inquiries from people who are querying whether a permit was actually applied for and issued.This was all done on the up and up,” said Dean Gibson, the city’s director of parks and recreation. “Certainly for people that live in that particular neighbourhood, it’s a fairly marked change for them. The tree bylaw is there to protect trees that otherwise can be saved and are in good health. In this particular case, it was not to be for this tree.” Gibson said homeowners who apply to cut down a

News Arborist said sick tree was unlikely to recover Continued from page 9 “For people who feel strongly about trees, that may or may not have felt like enough,” Gibson said, “but in this particular case, from a professional arborist’s perspective, who is trained in tree risk assessment and things such as this, there wasn’t any question as to the condition of this particular tree.” The Record has received calls and emails from area residents voicing concerns about the tree cutting, noting the cuttings seem to indicate the tree was healthy. “It was basically a sick tree that didn’t show any signs that it was going to be getting any better,” Gibson said. “They wanted to take the tree out because it was sick and presenting a risk. It is similar to one in the front yard. Should a branch come off of that tree, that could cause substantial damage to home and adjacent properties.” Two beech trees on the

property became the first trees listed on the city’s heritage register in 2010. A 2010 staff report stated the trees had heritage value because of their age – they were planted sometime between 1860 and 1880, their size, their landmark status in the Brow of the Hill neighbourhood and their connection to an important New Westminster family.The property was part of the Cunningham estate, a property owned by the family that started the Cunningham Hardware Company. In January, the city adopted a new tree protection and regulation bylaw that describes the situations where trees are allowed to be cut down, including hazardous trees, trees whose roots are interfering or posing hazards to the operation of sewers, drains and other infrastructure, or are within the footprint of a proposed building or structure. The tree was classified as a specimen tree because

it was a large and mature tree with a DBH (diameter breast height) of more than 60 centimetres. “The requirement for that is that they replant with at least one tree and either provide security in the amount of $500, which is held by the city for a year to ensure it is planted properly and has a fighting chance at survival, or if they elected not to plant any trees at all on their site, they could provide $500 cash in lieu. That money goes into a fund which the city uses for planting trees elsewhere in the city,” Gibson said. “It is our understanding that the property owner will be planting at least one tree back in their yard.” If a property owner wants to remove a non-hazardous specimen tree, the security or cash-in-lieu fee jumps to $10,000.

For students interested in a career in mining and mining exploration, there is a new geological resources diploma. Many courses offered as part of the program are transferable so students can move on to university once the diploma is complete, noted a press release. Meanwhile, students in the college’s social work program can now complete a social work degree without having to transfer to a university. Douglas College announced earlier this month it had received approval to offer a social work degree program. “The bachelor’s degree is the entry level for many careers in the profession,” said Carla Alexandra, community social service work program coordinator. “We had a good number of our students who had a relationship with their instructors and wanted to stay.

Although we were unsure of exactly what we wanted, Bryn was patient and didn’t pressure us, showing a variety of homes to help us figure out our needs. We received her personal attention on a daily basis, and she was always available for questions and advice. Despite being a highly successful Realtor, she made us feel we were her only clients. Bryn was quick to get us in on opportunities before they were listed publicly, and ultimately helped us find a great fit in our ideal neighbourhood. She helped guide us through the purchase process, saving us significant money, time, and stress with her keen insights and negotiation skills.” ~ Christine & Sara

Community Cops’ cellphone drive a success Cayley Dobie

cdobie@newwestrecord.ca

With a little help from residents, businesses and even a local film crew, the New Westminster Police Department has well surpassed its goal of collecting 50 cellphones for its victim assistance unit. The donated phones will be given to victims of crime, in particular victims of domestic violence, so they can make emergency phone calls, access services, contact family and friends, and stay in touch with members of the police department, acting Sgt. Jeff Scott told the Record. The police department’s month-long campaign kicked off Aug. 1, and within a week it had reached its goal of 50 phones. Before long, boxes started arriving at the police station, and by Aug. 22 the department had more than 200 phones destined for victims and people at risk. “It was certainly some-

thing that was really encouraging for us to see that we’re getting partnerships with everybody to fulfil this valuable need,” Scott said. Handing out cellphones to victims isn’t something new. Investigators and victim assistance team members often pass out cellphones to victims.They do so for several reasons but the most important reason is to make sure people can get access to emergency services when they need it, Scott said. “We want to make sure that people are equipped and able to have those important communication devices for reaching out to friends, family and, of course, any sort of emergency services that they require,” he said. Because the police department exceeded its goal, it’s closing the drive early. Anyone interested in supporting the victim assistance unit is encouraged to sign up as a volunteer.

Bridal Falls Resort:

Cottages and Lots at Spectacular Value Now is the perfect time to snap up a brand new cottage on its own lot, surrounded by stunning scenery.

W

ith the hot real estate market extending from Vancouver in 2016, the impact on Chilliwack and Bridal Falls RV Cottage Resort has been significant. Valley residents have been snapping up cottages at record rates in this unique offering of a detached cottage on a private lot. “With the detached home price increases we have seen in Chilliwack this year, a brand new cottage in our resort stacks up as a tremendous value. When you consider the clubhouse, pool and other amenities the lifestyle opportunity for downsizers becomes a key factor in the decision to buy,” says Ron Sturm, owner/partner in the resort.

“Right now we can offer a great selection of the various lots in Phase 1, which have the best price and value, but that will not last much longer. Now is the best time to get involved.” Bridal Falls’ two-bedroom, two-bathroom plans are the country’s largest manufactured park model cottages, appealing to downsizers who have spent a lifetime living in a house and are not ready for a condo’s elevators, hallways and common living spaces. The resort’s amenities are anchored by an impressive 12,000-square-foot log cabin clubhouse that features a 50-seat private theatre, gym, game and card rooms, lounge, dance floor, library area and event facilities for weddings or business conference use. “There is also a 2,000-plus-square-foot sun deck overlooking the gardens, pool and hottub deck,” adds Sturm. Bill and Linda Nokes were sold as soon as they visited the resort. “When we saw the show cottage and how beautiful the setting was, we decided we wanted to live here full

time,” says Linda. “We’ve been in resorts in Phoenix, Arizona and throughout California, but we had never seen such gorgeous cottages along with all these amazing amenities. We were also impressed with the price, by far the best value compared to anywhere else in B.C.” The cottages feature fully covered decks, natural gas, a stainless steel kitchen appliance package and bedrooms with built-in storage. (Upgrades include a washer and drier, skylights and sliding patio doors.) Bridal Falls RV Cottage Resort is a yearround community where buyers have the option to live full time, lock and leave for part of the year, or put their cottage in the fully managed rental program. “We are the only year-round resort development in North America to offer 100amp service, cable and natural gas to every lot,” says Sturm. “But what distinguishes us from other cottage resorts is our location at the centre of the Fraser Valley recreation hub, only minutes away from everything.”

Bridal Falls is a Mecca for the outdoor enthusiast. You are minutes away from numerous lakes, including Cultus, Chilliwack and Harrison; the Fraser River with its world famous fishing, as well as golf courses, parks and the Bridal Falls Waterslides. In addition, you can bike or hike the many local trails or meander the Cheam Lake bird sanctuary. “There is salmon, sturgeon and fly fishing on the Fraser River, which is only five minutes away,” says Sturm, adding the staff can assist with guided fishing tours. You can own a brand new cottage starting from $229,900 plus tax. The Bridal Falls RV Cottage Resort Presentation Centre and Show Cottages are located on Cheam Road, in Bridal Falls, open daily from 11am to 4pm.

Community IN THE LIBRARY

Cultivate a love of reading in your child Jenny Zhang

editorial@newwestrecord.ca

My favourite aspect of being a librarian is connecting children with books and helping them discover the wonder, excitement and delight found in a great story. Reading not only contributes to academic success, it sparks creativity and joy. However, with so many distractions and books to choose from, how do you engage your child and motivate them to read? Here are my tips: Let your child be the leader in choosing their book. Do they like comics, adventure, scary stories, funny books or information books? Find out what topics they like to read; then, take a trip to the library and let your child choose their books. A librarian can be your guide and provide recommendations or point you

in the right direction. Share your passion for books. Bring stories to life by reading out loud together, no matter how old your kids are. Parents and caregivers are their child’s best teachers, and by demonstrating that reading is fun and rewarding, they will grow to love reading too. Reading together is a great way to enrich the relationship with your child and to spark their passion for literature. Read everywhere.Take a book with you wherever you go, whether it is to the park, the beach or the dentist’s office. Have a variety of reading material readily available throughout your home, like cookbooks, newspapers, magazines and online articles. Show your child that reading is a pleasurable and fulfilling part of everyday life. Make reading interactive.

OVER 50% SOLD

Use books to start conversations about topics that are raised while reading. Discuss what you see in the pictures, and what you liked or disliked. Make connections with what you are reading to real-life experiences.

… it sparks creativity and joy. Finally, visit the library to attend a storytime and enjoy stories delivered by our passionate and talented librarians.You can also visit our website at nwpl.ca for lists of our staff’s favourite books.You’ll soon find you have unleashed your child’s inner bookworm. Happy reading!

Brick & Mortar on the move – but not too far Tereza Verenca

editorial@newwestrecord.ca

Brick & Mortar Living is on the move – again. The home décor boutique at 52 Sixth St. will be relocating two doors down to where Sixth Street Popup + Gallery is currently located.The move is a result of the developer, Citypoint Developments, wanting to set up a sales and presentation centre for a 33-storey mixed-use tower proposed for 618 Carnarvon St. The domino effect means the gallery will close its doors on Aug. 31.The under-utilized retail space had been left empty early last year, so the owners of Brick & Mortar Living thought it could serve as a temporary community hub.The idea was that until the developer had to demolish the building, the entrepreneurs would beautify the space and rent out the gallery for pop-up shows and events at a very low cost ($100 a

day). It would be an opportunity for businesses that were toying with the idea of moving to the Royal City to test out the market. “We really ran it as a nonprofit in a sense,” Brick & Mortar owner Jennifer Pistone told the Record. “The point wasn’t for us to make money off it, just to make sure it had something going on, to keep the block alive.” The sales and presentation centre has to be built inside the Brick & Mortar Living space and not the gallery space because the former is wheelchair-accessible, she noted. In addition to the gallery space, the next unit over (40 Sixth St.) will also be used to accommodate the shop.The plan is to make the move the last week of September and have everything up and running again by Oct. 1. “It’s been a lot of fun. I’m sad to see it go,” Pistone, who lives in Seattle and makes the trip to New West frequently, said of the gal-

lery. “There’s a need there. The amount of emails I get to Sixth Street Popup, even now, saying ‘I want to teach a weaving class,’ or ‘I want to teach a knitting class, I need a space,’ I could have this thing filled all the time.” The need for an artistic space is so great, according to Pistone, that a section of the new Brick & Mortar store will be used for workshops for up to eight students. Unfortunately, the entrepreneur’s moving woes won’t end this fall. Brick & Mortar Living will have to pack it up all again next year when Citypoint Developments tears down the building. Pistone would like to stay in New West. “It’d be crazy for us to try and re-establish ourselves somewhere else. I think it’s finding a space that’s vacant and a landowner who’s willing to work with us.” The ultimate goal is to return to Sixth Street once the new tower is built.

ASK AN OPTOMETRIST

Q A

What is the air-puff eye test for?

The ‘air-puff’ test, also called Non-Contact Tonometry (NCT), is one method your Doctor of Optometry uses to measure your eye pressure. Our eyes are filled DR. BRENDA HORNER with fluid that should flow equally in and out of the eye, resulting in constant intraocular pressure (IOP). However, if the eye produces too much fluid or if the drainage becomes narrowed or blocked, then the fluid builds up. This increased IOP can eventually lead to damage of the optic nerve, and is then called Glaucoma. Nerve damage is serious, as it may cause blindness if left untreated. Glaucoma is usually painless, so vision loss is not noticed until it’s too late. Your Doctor of Optometry measures your IOP as part of your regular eye exam. To ensure a lifetime of clear vision, book your appointment today.

Q

My group benefits plan price went up again this year at renewal, what are some of my options?

A

Part 1 of 2 With a traditional group benefits plan there is a negotiation ADAM JUNG process that makes it unique to Licensed Advisor any other insurance offered. The main component of your renewal rate is usage, and the insurance company’s expectation is they will have a target loss ratio of 83%. This means for every $1 they collect in premiums they expect to pay out $0.83 in claims or less. On top of past years claims experience, some of the other factors are age/ occupation/ number of employees you have working for you. As independent brokers we would shop the market for you and seek multiple quotes from the insurance companies we represent or renegotiate with your current provider. For part 2 on September 29th, I will discuss an alternative option.

eam members who work in an animal hospital can now become Fear Freesm certified professionals. When staff have earned this designation, they have done specific training to care for your pet’s emotional well-being as well as his or her physical well-being.

Does your pet show signs of stress and anxiety before arriving at the veterinary clinic? Ask if pre-visit sedation may take the edge off and keep your pet happy and relaxed. Fear Free certified professionals will bring you and your pet directly into the exam room when you arrive if your pet is nervous in the reception area. This will allow your pet to explore the room and relax a little first. Some hospitals use calming pheromones which are infused throughout the room using diffusers. Only dogs and cats can smell them, and they find them relaxing. There may also be music playing in the hospital that is specially created for canine and feline stress reduction. In calm pet hospital environments, voices are kept low and calm, and force is never used to handle your pet. Gentle control techniques and mild sedatives are used when necessary to reduce your pet’s anxiety. Unless it’s medically inappropriate, your pet should be given lots of treats during the visit. This is so he or she starts associating a trip to the veterinarian with good things! That will keep stress levels low. Bringing your pet into the appointment hungry can help this process along. Some veterinary hospitals will invite you to visit at any time with your dog for social visits to have a treat. Some pets prefer to be examined up on an exam table, in your lap, in their carrier, or on the floor. Non-slip yoga mats may be used on the exam table or on the floor to prevent slipping and help your pet feel secure. Interested in learning more about Fear Free veterinary visits?

Are You Sure You Have Oily Skin?

It’s not uncommon for women to tell me they have oily skin, when in fact, they actually have combination skin. What’s the difference? Oily skin is oily all KATIE MARSHALL over—not just the t-zone. Combination skin types experience two skin conditions on their face, oily and normal or dry. It’s tricky and difficult. While you may have to use lighter products in your t-zone and heavier products on your cheeks, exfoliation remains simple! A gentle granular scrub works extremely well for combination skin. Not too drying and not too rough, once a weekly exfoliation will help to: • Loosen and remove dead skin and debris • Unclog pores • Allow for a smooth, even makeup application • Keep blackheads from appearing Combination skin can be a bear to work with and needs special care.

Q

How do I keep my dog cool in the hot weather?

A

Dogs should be walked at cooler times of the day. Walk your dog on grassy surfaces DR. MANJU ARORA when the pavement is hot. Concrete and asphalt heat up quickly and can retain heat for hours. Even when temperatures start to drop, these surfaces still may be too hot for walking. Make sure pets always have access to shade or bring them inside on very hot days. Turn on the air-conditioning or use plenty of fans on hot, humid days to prevent heat stroke. Offer plenty of fresh water. Don’t leave your pet in the car. The temperature in a vehicle gets dangerously high in a few minutes, even with the windows open. Place a towel on hot car seats to protect your pet from burns.

Q A

Does hay fever/allergic rhinitis affect CPAP use?

Yes, nasal congestion can make it very difficult to use CPAP therapy. Heated humidification and a climate controlled hose can greatly decrease the symptoms of nasal congestion, dry nose and throat. A hypoallergenic filter can also help minimize breathing in allergens. Remember to change your filter monthly. Keep the windows closed during pollen season, and make sure that dust/pet dander is not accumulating in the bedroom. Many people find that a daily sinus rinse helps relieve congestion. Prescription nasal sprays or allergy medications can also relieve symptoms. Speak with your CanSleep therapist about adjusting your humidity. JESSICA CHUM, BSC.

Q A

How has the new sales tax for foreign Buyers affected the New Westminster real estate market?

It’s been a month since Christy Clark announced that they too wanted a piece of the hot Vancouver real estate market DERRICK THORNHILL and announced their tax grab. It will Park Georgia Realty do nothing to ease the pressure on the market. However, over the next few weeks, people will sit on the sidelines and see if it has an affect. The market was already naturally cooling several weeks before that announcement. By mid-September sales will be normal for the period. Prices will have shown to not be falling, but will remain steady. If the government wants to help local Buyers afford a home, how about passing some of that new found Property Purchase Tax along to the local Buyer by reducing or eliminating PPT for Canadians. That would honestly help with affordability.

It just takes an hour to save someone’s life Theresa McManus

tmcmanus@newwestrecord.ca

Darcy Schlechtleitner wants to help give the gift that keeps on giving. In March, Schlechtleitner received an emergency blood transfusion that saved her life.The transfusion came five years after Schlechtleitner was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. “I don’t get sick very often, it’s been five years since the last time, but this time I lost a lot of blood and I didn’t really realize it,” she told the Record. “When I got to the hospital, I was dy-

ing.” After being admitted to Royal Columbian hospital, Schlechtleitner received her first-ever blood transfusion. She likens the impact of the blood transfusion to watching a wilting flower come back to life. “It was so immediate,” she said. “It was like immediately someone gave me life.” Schlechtleitner, who was in the hospital for about three weeks in the spring, felt compelled to do what she could to help Canadian Blood Services. A Realtor with Team Rethink in New

West, Schlechtleitner is urging clients, employees and community members to attend a Give Life blood drive on Thursday, Sept. 22 from 3 to 8 p.m. in the Hyack ballroom at the Inn at the Quay, 900 Quayside Dr. Giving blood, said Schlechtleitner, is something many people don’t think about as they go about their daily lives. She’s grateful her life-saving transfusion has given her the ability to be with her family and carry on with her career. “It’s something that doesn’t take a lot of your time.You can save some-

one’s life and not even know it,” she said. “I needed it – I was going to die without it.” Schlechtleitner committed to the Canadian Blood Services that she’d have 75 people donate blood at Team Rethink’s upcoming blood drive. “We are 100 per cent prebooked for that clinic. Because we are working with a realtor, we are predicting a lot more people to be attending,” said Cherise Louie, territory manager, said Canadian Blood Services. “People can drop in because you never know who will not show up. People can drop in without an appointment – that’s no problem at all.The need for blood is constant. Just because there are no appointments available for the New Westminster clinic on Sept. 22 doesn’t mean that people can’t just walk in.” Louie said Canadian Blood Services is also in need of 100 donors for a clinic it’s holding on Sunday, Sept. 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Byrne Creek Secondary School, 7777

18th St. in Burnaby, just across the New West border. “If people are not able to make it out to the Sept. 22 clinic to support the Realtor, we are asking them to come out and support Byrne Creek Secondary,” she said. “Whether you come out on Sept. 11 or 22, it is still going to B.C. hospital patients.” To book an appointment for the Sept. 11 blood drive or to get information about donor eligibility, go to www.

blood.ca. “We need 15,000 new donors in B.C. this year,” Louie said. “We always need new donors. It only takes one hour to donate.We suggest people drink lots of water and drink something before they come in.They don’t need to know their blood type. A lot of people think that they need to know their blood type before they donate.”

Hyacks bring high hopes to training camp Last year’s success and junior B.C. title put NewWest program on track for big things this AAA season

Dan Olson

dolson@newwestrecord.ca

The marathon has begun, but don’t be surprised if there isn’t a little Usain Bolt-like sprinting done over the next two weeks. The New Westminster Hyacks jumped into training camp this week, with two on-field practice sessions and film and team meet-

ings slated every day. The Triple-A football team’s goal is to get further than last year – where they marched all the way to the provincial semifinal before getting bumped by Vancouver Fighting Irish – and coach Farhan Lalji notes such a plan requires a lot of hard work. “I don’t want to get ahead of the work we have to do right now,

but I think we’re in a good spot where the teams went last year,” said Lalji, referring to both a strong playoff march by the senior squad, and a tremendous championship season by the juniors. Put them all together and it’s hard not to envision a big game in BC Place come December. Although there are usually questions when you mix mem-

bers from two different teams, the fact that a part of last year’s junior 12-0 core were already doing double-duty with the seniors makes a transition all the more smoother. “Our goal is to have our best year ever,” he added. “There’s no need to set the bar lower because of the number of Grade 11s we have...The (core Grade 12s) two years ago with the JV team were

undefeated and got upset in the quarterfinals that year. “They were a dominating team as 10th graders, so it’s not like these two groups are following different paths. All the kids on this (senior team) are use to winning 80-90 per cent of their games.” Among the key areas that have opportunity written all over them Continued on page 40

Prognosis promising as Chiefs play waiting game Major midget team to lean heavily on returning talent, like NewWest’s Liam Ryan, in upcoming season Dan Olson

dolson@newwestrecord.ca

Big, fast, skilled and hungry. As descriptions go, these could describe many hockey coaches’ wish list. For the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs’ coach Jamie Jackson, the players he’s assembled fit the above bill, and then some. The only question is, how many of the 19 players he’s circled as potential Chiefs will receive an offer to play junior? Jackson has already endured a few weeks of camp and, like the rest of the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League teams, is in the midst of a week off as many players attend junior A and major junior camps in search of a promotion. “We’re fairly close to having a (final) team, but its in sort of a holding pattern right now,” said Jackson. “We’ve carded 12, we’re down to 27 players and 19 are at various other camps this week. “Nineteen is the largest number we’ve had attend junior camps, which is great.” Since the midget season doesn’t officially begin until October, there’s time to mull over the possibilities and options. At the same time, its difficult to get too rooted in specific line combinations just yet. While it is unpredictable, there is a good chance that a few of those trying out will get extended looks and possibly roster spots at the higher level – which doesn’t bother Jackson. His main job and purpose is to help each player in his charge reach his potential, even if it means them moving on up. At the same time, he has a hockey season Ice works: Many players who were competing for spots at the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs’ training camp two weeks ago are now attending junior A camps this to prepare for. week, or preparing to challenge for spots at major junior camps.

Royals get makeover Dan Olson

dolson@newwestrecord.ca

It often comes down to chemistry. A key to building a winning soccer team isn’t that much of a secret – just ask the Vancouver Whitecaps management. Victories and losses often come down to chemistry – either of the good, or bad kind. Chemistry is going to play a big part in whether 2016 is a great or mere good year for the Douglas College Royals men’s soccer team. Royals co-coaches Paul Bahia and Robby Toor are use to setting their sights high ever since they took over the program four years ago.They’ve piloted the squad to a pair of nationals in that time. Last year’s disappointing third-place finish at the provincials provides some extra motivation, said Bahia. “I think it’s something to learn from, especially for our returning young players,” said Bahia. “We’ve done fairly well over the last four years but the main goal is to get back to nationals.We missed that boat

(last year) and that’s kind of where we set the bar.” And while the club is looking at a lot of new faces in the lineup, the roster won’t be totally inexperienced when it comes to the Pacific Western Athletic Association. That’s because the Royals have absorbed a handful of players from the Kwantlen

We missed (the nationals) boat and that’s kind of where we set the bar.

University squad which also happened to be the team which relegated them to third place at last year’s provincials. With Kwantlen disbanding its sports programs, Douglas got to the front of the line and scooped up both players and the program’s coach. “We use to have issues with Kwantlen when we played, just

based on style of play,” noted Bahia. “We were considered a ‘pretty boy’ team, all about possession, while (Kwantlen) was a run-and-gun, a gritty group. I think this is an opportunity for us to benefit by adding players who give us a new look.” The Kwantlen pickups centre around defenders Tony McCullough, Matthew Pierre and forward Mateo Serka, the latter player even scored the goal that bounced Douglas from the B.C. final. Among Royal returnees, Nicholas Pineda Graham, Mark Baldisimo and Isaac Kyei, a fifth-year forward, will be counted on for leadership and continuity. Even with the turnover and incoming faces,Toor said the squad has quickly shown good chemistry. “On our pre-season trip Paul and I noticed how this was the quickest we’ve seen a team come together...We think this group has a very goo chance of going to nationals and competing for a gold.” The PacWest season starts officially Sept. 7, when Douglas hosts Langara in Coquitlam.

Big position battles ahead Continued from page 39 are quarterback and running backs, where some interesting battles for roles appear to be playing out. With the graduation of last year’s starting pivot James Shiho, the No. 1 job is vacant – and three challengers are expected to make it a tough choice. Last year’s backup Matthew Thind, a 5-foot-11 Grade 12, upcoming Lucas Sabau, a Grade 11 at 5-foot-9, and Grade 10 Kinsale Philip, who at just 14 is pushing to jump up a level after handling the top job for the stretch run of the junior Hyacks championship. A Surrey native, Philip was busy this summer as a member of Team B.C. at the Under-16 Challenge in Regina. He was joined by New West receiver Broxx Comia. Lalji is excited about the race, and is impressed by each. “I can’t imagine three different quarterbacks who bring different attributes to the field.They may all be physically similiar – none of them are 6-foot-2 – but they each have different strengths.” At running back, Grade 12s Trew Dancey and Josh Olango, the latter filling a fullback position, did their share of ball carrying a year ago. Dancey established a club record with five touchdowns in one game. Then add Sammy Sidhu into the mix – as a Grade 10 he was one of the

juniors who played on both teams and was an unstoppable force in the junior final. His totals of four TDs and 264 yards rushing earned him the provincial MVP award. “I’m anticipating having the biggest backfield since 2009,” said Lalji. “They will have to have a healthy diet of carries, so spreading it around is going to be important.” Other Grade 10s who gained valuable experience with the senior squad were linemenYanni Angelopolous and Isaiah James, and 6-foot-3 receiver/defensive back Shane Belsher. The club has also gained four players who transferred to the school. While this week they do the work on home turf, next week they shift to Chilliwack, in preparation for their first exhibition game Sept. 2 in Scappoose, Ore. against the American city’s vaunted high school varsity team. “Both weeks are important,” said the longtime coach. “Scappoose played in their state’s 4-A championship game last year. And while you always take the field aiming to win, what a trip like that is mostly for is a team-building exercise, that’s why we also mix in a stop at the University of Washington to watch a football game and just hang out together.” New Westminster returns home to host Calgary’s Notre Dame on Sept. 9 at Mercer Stadium.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS! Welcome to the 17th Annual

Readers’ Choice Awards, it’s one of our highlights each and every year at The Record. As you may recall, we published ballots during the month of June and offered a $750 shopping spree at Royal City Centre as an incentive for you, the loyal reader, to cast your votes for the best in New West in 120 business categories. While our contest does not qualify as a scientific survey, the level of participation definitely lends credibility to the outcome as do our strict rules on how we count and qualify every ballot. Each ballot must contain a minimum of 25 businesses voted upon, only one ballot is accepted per individual, and only original ballots cut out of the newspaper or entered online were counted. All other entries were disqualified. I want to offer my sincere congratulations to the businesses who received this year’s Readers’ Choice Award. They are all deserving of our recognition as The Best in New West. But please don’t just take our word for it; visit as many of the winning businesses listed in this special feature and decide for yourself. The Record would like to congratulate this year’s winner of the Royal City Centre Shopping Spree, Kelly Stromberg. We also sincerely thank all of you who participated and entered this year’s contest and we look forward to counting your votes next year.

WHITE SPOT

Thank Y ou FOR VOTING US

BEST PET GROOMING FOR THE 2ND YEAR IN A ROW!

Best Family Dining White Spot New Westminster has become synonymous with great service, great food and great people. Once again, local residents have proclaimed White Spot as Best Family Dining in the 2016 Reader’s Choice Awards. “We feel a great sense of pride for winning the Reader’s Choice Award” says Mathew Oommen, General Manager. Oommen says the legendary restaurant has an unbeatable combination of affordability, proximity and a menu offering something for everyone. “Another key to our success is that we promise to do whatever it takes to keep our customers happy”, says Oommen. White Spot is truly considered part of our province’s heritage and pride. According to White Spot’s story, it all started when founder Nat Bailey transformed his 1918 Model T truck into a traveling lunch counter for hungry sightseers at Vancouver’s Lookout Point. One day, as the young industrious Bailey was doing his runs, a customer leaned out of his window and asked him, “Why don’t you bring it to us?”

So, Bailey hired three strapping young guys to take orders. And thus began one of the most enduring stories of phenomenal success in the industry. Nat’s energy and his passion for service set the stage for the first White Spot drive-in, which he opened in 1928 on Granville Street at 67th avenue in Vancouver. That commitment to excellence is echoed at New Westminster White Spot, and is evident in the number of awards the location has gathered over the years. This summer, enjoy your favourite White Spot fare while taking in some sun on their great outdoor patio. For breakfast, lunch or dinner, White Spot is the place to be for great eats in a fun, casual atmosphere. White Spot New Westminster is located at #134 610 6th street in Royal City Centre with plenty of free parking. For more information, visit www.whitespot.ca or call 604-522-4800. White Spot New Westminster is open Sunday to Thursday 8am to 10pm, Friday and Saturday 8am to 10:30 pm. Bring home White Spot’s legendary taste, for take-out call 604-310-SPOT (7788), or order online at www.whitespot.ca

PEOPLES DRUG MART

Best Drugstore (Independent)

With GP’s becoming overwhelmed with the number of patients they must attend to, in the last few years a lot of the work of answering drug related questions or problems falls to the pharmacist. It is the pharmacists responsibility to make sure each patient receives the best care by managing all the medications, including over the counter medications. The pharmacist does this by monitoring drug interactions, solving drug related problems where certain medications may not be appropriate, reconciling medications given in hospital or other pharmacies, managing changes in doses, counselling the patient to see how medications are Y<9AB=dC ><=B_<9B=d aB#!+!U!%_aC %<=_)%_B=d

Let’s face it — the dentist isn’t on most adults’, let alone children’s, top list of fun places to visit. If thinking about the dentist makes you think about painful drills and relentless grinding, then head to where many New Westminster residents feel comfortable - Columbia Square Dental. Here it’s all about comfort, friendliness and all-encompassing services, featuring general, cosmetic, and sedation dental clinic located in Columbia Square in the historic downtown area near the New Westminster Skytrain Station. Sarah Tan, Office Manager says its great team of dentists and hygienists who “do what they can to make our office as comforting, calming and serene as possible… Similar to a spa environment.” They’ve succeeded. The team of committed dentists, Dr. Majlessi and Dr. Navneet Randhawa, and its skilled hygienists at Columbia Square Dental have improved the lives of the people in New Westminster and surrounding Lower Mainland neighbourhoods by taking the pain out of dentistry. Starting from the initial assessment, each dentist ensures each one of its patients’ experience is a positive one, and everyone looks forward to exceeding your expectations. Besides all of the services and treatments you expect from a dentist, this award-winning team provides cosmetic services such as teeth whitening, Invisalign, smile makeovers, crowns and bridges. Sarah believes its award-winning practice stems from offering unparalleled service, exceptional comfort, care and attention. Testimonial after testimonial attest to that. One of many patients speak about the amazing team. Patricia writes: “I was treated with such great enthusiasm! The prices and treatment were explained thoroughly. The dentists and staff were very warm and made my dental visits really easy and pain free. Because of my very positive experience with the dentists and friendly staff I’m going to make sure I come HERE for my cleanings from now on!”

Blessed with a keen eye for interior design and for uncovering fabulous quality vintage finds, savvy businesswoman/ entrepreneur Jenny Cashin opened the doors to a distinctive furnishings store unlike anything New Westminster had seen before 7+ years ago. “In a way, my work is a combination of excavation and rescue - unearthing hidden gems that have often been poorly treated, and rescuing them from the landfill with a multi-talented team that has the passion and skills to reconstruct, restore and sometimes even resurrect pieces and bring them back to be appreciated and loved again.” Welcome to the multiple award-winner Mid-Century Modern Home, where discerning clientele from across the Lower Mainland come to discover that perfect find. This unique boutique features a beautifully curated collection of Danish Modern teak and rosewood furniture from the 50s and 60s that has been restored, refinished and reupholstered. They also have a huge selection of vintage lighting, collectables, art glass and pottery. Jenny gives kudos to her great team of professionals - from her wood worker whose skills are unrivaled, to her 2 associates who’ve honed their refinishing skills and who have become Jenny’s main furniture consigners, to her local upholsterer, whose business has grown hand in hand with hers. Jenny recently expanded her showroom to allow more room for the ever growing collections. Drawn to an era when things were masterfully handcrafted, her customers appreciate purchases that are blessed with a “story, a legacy” spanning 50 or more years, and yet lovingly restored to look new again. They will go on to be heirlooms - handed down from generation to generation - unlike so much of the disposable furniture sold today. Mid-Century Modern Home is located at the River Market/ New West Quay (western entrance). For more information, call 604-515-1865 or visit www.mcmhome.ca

QUEEN’S PARK PRESCHOOL

BEACH HOUSE TANNING

THORNEBRIDGE GARDENS

For more than five decades, the award-winning Queen’s Park Parent Participation Preschool has been offering local youngsters excellence in play-based early childhood education. Owned and operated by the parents of the children, the popular Preschool’s founders understood that family involvement is strengthened with positive results for young children and their school readiness. “Being parent participation, it is the families that create all aspects of the Preschool,” explains Shelley Stevenson, Past President. It’s success also lies in the fact that the preschool is manned by a talented and caring team of fully-qualified Early Childhood Educators teachers with a passion for familycentred, play-based learning. To that end, the preschool expanded its outdoor play area - in time for the fall session. “Our outdoor space has doubled in size and includes a natural play space where the preschooler’s will be able to explore some of the plants and trees of Queen’s Park, find bugs and leaves, play on logs, all within the environment of the Preschool,” she adds. Another enriching component of the centre is the monthly educational speakers’ seminars parents are invited to attend. “They speak on a variety of subjects all related to the growth and development of their preschooler(s),” adds Shelley. With such a long, rich history in the Royal City, the Preschool is committed to the community it serves. Shelley explains that its centre is based on the principle of “building a sense of community through volunteerism in our families.” Many parents go on to be leaders in Parent Advisory Programs, sport and other community groups. Moreover, the preschool frequently donates new children’s books and food hampers to the New Westminster Family Place. Discover what generations of families know to be true Queen’s Park Parent Participation Preschool prepares children for a brighter future.

When New Westminster residents want a glowing tan without the burn of the sun, they head to Beach House Tanning & Swimwear. For more than three decades, the award-winning, Smart Tan Certified salon has offered the best quality tans at unbeatable prices, with a friendly vibe to help you feel at ease. “We are in the business to appropriately guide people along with smart tanning so that they can look and feel at their best,” says manager Ellen Pepperell. Looking great doesn’t have to carry a hefty price tag or come with a nonsense membership, either. Beach House Tanning & Swimwear offers what they call ‘Complete Tanning Freedom.’ There are no membership fees, no points system, and best of all, no pre-authorized billing. Beach House Tanning & Swimwear offers the lowest prices for tanning in New Westminster. And when you factor in their shareable minute packages, large assortment of tanning lotions and a new full line of swimwear, they are the best value out there, hands down (and placed flat on either side of your body). If you want the perfect tan, you need the best equipment. Engineered with comfort and smart tanning in mind, their tanning beds provide customers with glowing, radiant skin. Even better, their equipment is very clean and ready for you to use. Beach House Tanning & Swimwear features four types of topof-the-line tanning beds designed to give a fuller, richer hue. “We are the home of the Envy bed – the only state-of-theart Alpha 6800 bed in Western Canada,” adds Ellen. “We also offer a new line of men’s and women’s swimwear and beach footwear, and a variety of tanning lotions for everyone.” Discover why so many New Westminster residents make the smart choice and come to Beach House Tanning & Swimwear for the best glow ever.

When asked what makes Thornebridge Gardens stand above the crowd, Debbie says it’s the exceptional staff who are dedicated to its residents. “It is the “little extras” they do, whether in the fine meal service or a small personal gift to brighten their day,” she adds. “The staff choose to work here, decide to stay here and it shows by seeing them work hard to better others daily lives.” The residence also offers restaurant– style dining featuring a menu boasting a great selection using fresh local ingredients, optional dining times, servers who remember residents’ personal preferences and where laughter often fills the room. Meanwhile, Thornebridge Gardens is part of Verve Inspired Senior Living (formally Diversicare). “We renamed the company Verve, which means “spirited effort” and signifies vitality, growth, and a thriving spirit,” says Debbie Clarke Marketing Manager. “Verve describes how we want all our residents to live every day. Our focus is to make each day a great day!”

QUEEN’S PARK DENTAL

We’re proud to be your local Pet Experts.

Best Dental Clinic

What does it take to create an awardwinning dental practice that consistently offers its patients excellence in service and care? A dedicated team of professionals who have their patients’ best interest at heart. Welcome to Queen’s Park Dental. Founded by Dr. Darcy Murphy seven years ago, he says: “I have tried to create an environment that reflects the quality of the dental care that we provide and also offers different amenities in order to reduce anxiety for many of our nervous patients.” That’s because he is passionate about patient education and believes a big part of a dentist’s job is to educate patients about oral health so that they can make well-informed decisions. His clinic offers the latest state-of-the-art dentistry and specializes in a wide range of services and the most up-to-date advancements in general dentistry, including dental implants, dental veneers, sealants, as well as teeth whitening and more. “We stay current with dental education and technology and work with our patients to come up with a specialized treatment plan that works for them,” he says, adding he credits his phenomenal team of talented employees for Queen’s Park Dental’s success. Today, Dr. Murphy enjoys a thriving dental practice, with the same enthusiasm and love he had when he decided to enter dentistry. He comes with a wealth of knowledge and vast experience. The highly skilled profes-

sional graduated with his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) from the well-respected Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia in 2003. While at Dalhousie, he was elected Class President, President of the Dental Society and Class Valedictorian. Wanting to further his dental education, Dr. Murphy was accepted into a one-year Dentistry General Practice Residency (GPR) at the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton. From there, he moved to British Columbia where he has been practicing dentistry in New Westminster since 2004. In keeping with the practice’s promise to provide the latest in dentistry, the clinic recently introduced a New Gum procedure, Pinhole Surgical Technique, which is scalpelfree, suture-free procedure for correcting gum recession. “Since there is no cutting or stitching, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding).,” he explains. “Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.” Trust in a state-of-the-art clinic that promises the highest standards of care and products- Queen’s Park Dental.

LIFETIME EYECARE

DYNAMIC HEALTH AND FITNESS

Best Eyewear

Your eyesight is a precious gift. Imagine not being able to see a rainbow or a child’s smile. Your eye health is what has driving the multiple award-winning Lifetime Eyecare since 1929. Dr. Sureen Bachra, Owner and Chief Optometrist, took over the landmark Eyecare Clinic and Eyeglass Centre in 2006. Every year since 2008, Lifetime Eyecare has been voted Readers Choice #1 Best Eyewear. “We are the only local eyeglass centre with an A+ Rating from the Better Business Bureau (BBB),” says Sureen. She credits her team of knowledgeable doctors and staff, who are committed to meeting each patient’s visual needs and delivering excellent quality eye care, for the success of the centre. Sureen and her team are dedicated to unparalleled service, most current information and education, and the finest products on the market – including one of the largest selection of eyewear frames.

Best Fitness Studio & Best Gym “We believe that providing great service, great eyewear and eye exams at prices that are among the lowest in the entire area is the right thing to do,” says Sureen, adding the clinic has an eye specialist on staff. “Being the best is what really counts and that is what we strive for every single day for every single customer and eyecare patient.” Lifetime also features $0 out of pocket (“No Extra Fee Eye Exams”) for all children and seniors as well as free basic lenses to all children with the purchase of any frame. Meanwhile, you can trust your eyes to Sureen. She received an undergraduate degree in biology, as well as a teaching degree from the University of B.C. She went on to garner her optometry degree from Oregon’s Pacific University. Currently, Sureen serves as an Optometric Advisor to the Douglas College Dispensing Optician Program Advisory Committee (DOPT-PAC). Trust in the compassionate care at Lifetime Eyecare.

Dynamic Health and Fitness is an awardwinning 12,000sq co-ed and ladies only Health and Fitness Club run by Jeff and Alison Humphries. A local couple that have created a thriving and successful business - one that is an inviting, unintimidating and appealing to all ages and fitness levels. Once again and for the last 15 years it was chosen by the New Westminster Record readers as the “Best in New West!” The couples latest (and last) move down to the to the Shops at New West Skytrain station (3rd level beside Starbucks) seems to have worked out quite well. “This has been the best decision we have made for our business since starting out - we are now going into our 3rd year at the new location and the whole area of the downtown is just booming which is excellent to finally see!” says Jeff. The club is outfitted with wide variety of equipment to appeal to all ages and fitness levels, as well offering over 25 group fitness classes weekly. The couple however points to their staff for making the club as successful as it has turned out to be. Some of the staff have been with the club since the beginning and the couple takes a tremendous amount of pride in their business and cannot speak highly enough about their staff and clients. “Our staff and clients are amaz-

ing people, a great group of people that have become more than just our staff or clients; they are our friends outside of the business that we enjoy having dinner with or going out with. There is no way we would be where we are today as a business without the great supporting staff and clients we have had over the years” says Alison. Part of their success comes from them being very approachable, hands on owners. “We really try to excel in customer service year after year, I mean we are in the customer service business. We treat all our clients with a ton of respect and listen to their wants and needs and try to help them become successful with their health and fitness goals” says Jeff. Supporting the community over the years is part of their whole holistic approach to business. They continue to support local charities, such as the Monarch House (for abused women and children) with a Food and Toy drive every Christmas, The Last Door (recovery house for men), and the Terri Fox Run. Jeff says, “We really try to support and attend all the local fundraisers and charity functions as much as possible along with all the local schools and nonprofit organizations. These are some of the same people that have helped support us over the years and the more successful you are the more people you can help, ultimately that’s what our business is all about - giving back!

OXYGEN YOGA & FITNESS Best Yoga Studio

For anyone looking for a yoga & fitness studio that stands out from the crowd, residents in the Royal City look no further than Oxygen Yoga & Fitness. In three short years, Faith Wiens, Partner and Mentor of the popular studio, and her team have built a fitness centre based on a philosophy of great service, knowledgeable and friendly staff and a commitment to fitness and health. In addition they provide yoga and fitness classes with weights, blocks, balls and bars at their studio, all at an affordable price. Oxygen Yoga & Fitness is about: “providing our members a positive space to feel inspired. Our yoga classes offer members their own space and range from Deep Stretch and Relaxation, to Freedom Flow and Yang Yin, where the infrared heat helps to enhance one’s practice.” Its fitness classes are extremely well-attended. They include some of the best and fat-busting classes such as: Power Core, Fast and Furious, Burning Butts and Cardio Barre - all guarantee to challenge and reward those who take part. When you combine a team of professional, talented and friendly instructors along with a beautiful facility, which features a temperature controlled studio that is heated with infrared panels, you get an awardwinning combination. Faith gives a lot of credit for its success to its talented team – from the instructors to front-end personnel. “Every person who works at our studio truly cares about every member that walks through the door,” she adds. “We all share the energy, dedication and commitment that our members bring to

the studio each and every day.” The studio is always looking for ways to offer its members the best in fitness. To that end, less than a year ago the studio doubled its size. “We have also recently started offering workshops where members can work on perfecting their practice by learning the proper form for basic yoga poses,” adds Faith. Keeping in mind the importance of fitness to the health and wellbeing of children and teens, Oxygen Yoga & Fitness also began a teen night drop-in class, and a Buddha Buddies workshop for kids aged 9-12 that is done without the infrared heat. Whether you are a novice or hard core sports enthusiast, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Come and discover why residents awarded Oxygen Yoga & Fitness with The Readers Choice for best yoga studio for two years in a row. The goal of the studio is to be a part of the community by helping people to live healthy and active lives. It also includes giving back by supporting several local non-profit organizations and community fundraisers. “The company has always prided itself on giving back to communities we do business in and even more so in the city the owners live in,” says Faith, about the parent company Stonewater. “Last year we hosted a yoga in the park event at Pier Park with other local businesses and were founding sponsors of the New Westminster Youth Ambassador Program where we provide a scholarship to a local youth each year who represents us in the community.”

CARTWRIGHT JEWELERS

ROYAL CITY CENTRE

Best Shopping Centre Indoor

Best Consignment Furniture

This year, Cartwright Jewelers celebrates its 83rd year in business in New Westminster. Cartwright Jewelers has remained an integral part of the community over the years. Its standing in the Royal City was recently affirmed in its selection as the Best Jewellery Store by the readers of The New West Record for the seventeenth consecutive year. “I’m honoured to have such deeply loyal customers who have voted for us for 17 straight years since these awards started,” says Susan Cartwright-Coates, owner and granddaughter of founder James Cartwright. Susan’s pride in carrying on the family’s tradition is evident as she recounts early memories of the business. “My grandfather always said that if you could see over the counter, you were old enough to work.” James began the business in 1933, his son and Susan’s father, Don, followed in his footsteps from 1965, and Susan joined the business in 1985. Excellent customer service has been and always will be the cornerstone of the family business. It’s that focus on the customer combined with consistently top quality craftsmanship and design that has kept Cartwright Jewelers at the top. “This is the reason for the continued success of our jewellery store,” says Susan. “As a third generation business, it is truly an honour to serve customers who dealt with my father or grandfather, and to serve their children and their children’s children.” Susan treats her staff as carefully as she treats the jewellery she carries. “We spend more time with each other than we do with our families. We need to enjoy coming to work and enjoy the customers that we serve,” says Susan. “The best way to achieve this is to have fun.” In this day and age when everything is getting bigger and less personal, Cartwright Jewelers continues to excel in serving the customer and making each visitor feel special.

The Royal City Centre (RCC) has been a landmark in New Westminster for more than three decades. For good reason: RCC offers more than 40 shops and services - everything from eye care, dental and medical clinics, as well as boutique clothing and décor shops, furniture and travel merchants; all of which are anchored by Walmart and Save-On-Foods, as well as national retailers like Shoppers Drug Mart, Purdy’s Chocolates, The Shoe Warehouse and Dollarama. This award-winning neighbourhood shopping centre prides itself on its strong community presence in Uptown New West. The shopping centre has a long rich history of supporting the local community. RCC devotes a significant amount of time and space to help local nonprofit organizations and local initiatives. “Whether it’s sponsoring Uptown Live and other community events, or as home to New Westminster’s only resident Santa during the Christmas season, RCC prides itself on its involvement in the area.,” says Jennifer Clarke, Marketing Manager with Strathallen Property Management Inc. The centre and its 40 merchants have successfully helped businesses raise funds for its charitable endeavours, as well as provide space for events that are important to the local and wider community, including hosting the Annual Volunteer Fest, PechaKucha, Arts to Go (with the Arts Council of New West), Uptown Unplugged (with the Arts Council Of New West and the Uptown Business Improvement Association).

Ongoing support includes the monthly BC Cancer Agency’s Mobile Mammography truck, the Hyack Festival and the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce, to name just a few. A shopping centre with heart – that’s RCC.

Over the years, Champagne Taste has acquired quite a following. The store specializes in fine consignment furniture and accessories for your home - everything from beautiful used furniture, vintage pieces, the odd collectable as well as a unique blend of new furniture and home décor items at much more affordable prices than traditional furniture and home decor stores. Champagne Taste has been consistent in establishing a unique brand, mixing previously owned merchandise with new merchandise in a way that compliments both. The store has uniqueness, style and charm without either the monotony of new furniture stores or the “used” feeling of resale stores. A designer sofa, an antique armoire, or a unique handcrafted item —as your eyes drift down to the price tag expecting a staggering amount, you find that you are pleasantly surprised. This is a great local store that offers something fresh and new every day. The owners of Champagne Taste Home are proud and happy to be part of the uniqueness and vibrancy that makes New Westminster such a great place to live and do business in.

NURSE NEXT DOOR

IMPERIAL PHARMACY

PRIME DENTURE CLINIC

Many “Boomers” must make decisions about their aging parents’ housing options. As our lifespan increases, many seniors are able to remain independent but others will require assistance of some sort. For many seniors, staying in their own home is the best. At Nurse Next Door Home Care Services, Wendy J. Scott, co-owner and Director of Care, understands that all too well. A registered nurse for over 40 years, she co-founded the award-winning home care business out of a very personal reason – her beloved father. After her father was discharged from hospital, Wendy suddenly realized the benefits of care delivered within the home and a Nurse Next Door home care franchise was the best way to deliver on her passion. “Nurse Next Door senior home care is not just about finding someone who can come when you need them,” she explains. “We go to great lengths to make sure we have the perfect match and will make it right if we don’t get it the first time.” Nurse Next Door brings expertise and peace of mind to families and their loved ones through a wide range of senior home care, from housekeeping to palliative care. Wendy also provides learning opportunities for seniors on a variety of topics at the Seniors Active in Living Program, Bonsor 55+ Community Centre, Century House, and Cameron Community Centre. She teaches for the Canadian Diabetes Association and provides written information on this chronic health condition. Wendy participates as a nursing consultant for an addictions rehabilitation program and for a centre for marginalized women. Wendy runs a wellness program in independent living residences. She participates in 2-3 community events a month such as Senior Fairs, the Hyack Festival, and Sapperton Days. Wendy sets up and runs multiple flu vaccine clinics throughout the fall and winter.

There’s something really special about heading to your independent neighbourhood pharmacy, where you typically receive faster, friendlier, and more personal customer care. That’s exactly what makes Imperial Pharmacy an award winner – offering fast, personalized service, and extensive knowledge in a family-friendly environment. Since 2003, residents have come to appreciate the quality service offered here. “We care about people’s health and we care about their kids’ health...we are proud not to sell tobacco,” says owner and pharmacist with nearly 25 years’ experience, Rida Bazzi. Imperial Pharmacy offers a wide variety of prescription and non-prescription items including herbal products, vitamins, nutritional supplements, home health care products, pressure stockings, medical supplies, blister packs and compliance packaging. The independent pharmacy also provides flu vaccinations, Diabetes counselling, glucose monitor training, medication reviews and free blood pressure monitoring. In an age where chain pharmacies dominate the landscape, it’s Rida and his team that have customers coming back. His expertise and education speaks for itself. Rida obtained his Bachelor Degree in pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences in 1992. Since then, he has worked in the industry as a pharmacist, and pharmacy manager. He also taught part time in the faculty of pharmacy B.A.U. University for five years (1992-1997). He is a member in good standing in several prestigious associations, including: The College of Pharmacists of BC, Order of Pharmacists of Lebanon, a corporate member at the BC Pharmacy Association, New Westminster Chamber of Commerce and The Pacific Chapter of the American Chamber of Commerce. “I’m also a member on the panel of speakers for the Canadian Diabetes Association,” the veteran pharmacist says, adding he has completed a wide variety of courses in patient care, marketing, pharmaceutical production, pharmacovigilance and regulatory affairs. At Imperial Pharmacy, superior service and patient care come first.

Founded two years ago, Prime Denture Clinic has already earned a stellar reputation for its unwavering dedication to its patients. This simple yet leading concept is one of the benchmark principles that guides Brian Ko and Patrick Marcelo. That philosophy also earned the clinic the Readers’ Choice Award for Best Denture Clinic in New Westminster for two years in a row. “We understand the significance that dentures have on a client; the way it impacts one looks, the way they eat, the way they speak and smile,” say both. The clinic offers free consultations, which includes examination of the tissues and dentures, taking numerous measurements, before providing clients with several options of treatment and a comprehensive treatment plan. Both Brian and Patrick come with a wealth of experience and education. They graduated from Vancouver Community College with Registered Denturist and Registered DentalTechnician degrees. With strong technical backgrounds, these professionals offer the expertise, knowledge and art of creating a stable bite, tight fit, and optimum comfort for each client. Whether a patient’s dentures are for purely cosmetic reasons or for optimizing full dental function, the clinic offers full removable denture and permanent denture solutions. Working closely with some of New Westminster’s top dental professionals, the clinic delivers a comfortable, relaxed and enjoyable experience. “Whether it is a simple complete/partial denture or as sophisticated as an implant-supported dentures, we can guarantee that we will be able to provide you genuine service and a professional quality denture,” adds both.

ANGELINA’S RESTUARANT

PADDLEWHEELER PUB

COLUMBIA SQUARE ANIMAL HOSPITAL

When you offer beautiful river views with mouth-watering Dutch inspired cuisine, you will attract fans. Nestled in The Quay by the Fraser River, Angelina’s Dutch Corner Restaurant is a favourite amongst locals and visitors who gather here for breakfast, a coffee break with a friend or lunch on its seasonal patio. “At Angelina’s we really appreciate our customers … we truly believe the customer is boss and therefor should be treated like royalty,” says Eric Missouri, who wears many hats - owner, chef, and manager. Eric took over the trendy restaurant nearly four years ago. Since then, this entrepreneur has increased its sales by a whopping 200% and turned the restaurant around to make it one of the most popular spots in New West. The family-friendly restaurant features contemporary and traditional Dutch cuisine as well as West Coast favourites. Angelina’s provides a local neighbourhood hangout that serves great food at great prices. Delicious fare in a casual, contemporary atmosphere has customers coming back again and again. At Angelina’s everything is made in-house from scratch. Eric sources the freshest local ingredients he can find. Renowned in the Royal City for its signature Dutch pannekoek, waffles and pancakes, Angelina’s will tantalize even the most discerning palate. A pannekoek is a larger and much thinner version of an American pancake, but not as thin as crepes. They may contain slices of bacon, apples, cheese or raisins. Plain ones are often eaten with treacle (a syrup made of sugar beets), appelstroop (an unspiced Dutch variety of apple butter) or powdered sugar. Angelina’s also feature a wide selection of omelets, breakfast plates, sandwiches, soups – all of which will make you hanker for more.

When it comes to great pub fare and stunning waterfront views, the clear favorite for New Westminster residents is The Paddlewheeler Pub. A landmark in New Westminster for nearly 25 years, this friendly, locally owned neighborhood pub is where locals head for the best wings, Bellini’s and best patio in town. This multiple award-winning pub has always been synonymous with mouthwatering food, a great place to meet friends, and perhaps that “special someone,” as well as for great live entertainment. Its scenic riverfront patio gets extremely busy during the summer months … You can sit and enjoy a great meal with your favorite brew or glass of wine and watch the boats leisurely go by while people are walking on the boardwalk. Although The Paddlewheeler is renowned for its wings and Angus beef burgers, they also have such mouthwatering favorites as fish and chips, burgers, sandwiches and wraps, soups and salads, as well as daily features. Manager Janet Lucarino credits an amazingly friendly staff and great food at reasonable prices for its success. Loyal patrons also stop by for the wide range of entertainment featured here: sports, UFC, music bingo, karaoke, poker nights and an awesome free local entertainment with a DJ and live bands. Meanwhile, the pub prides itself on its strong commitment to the community. The staff host an annual Christmas Breakfast every December to help out The Purpose Society and Family Place in New Westminster, as well as pulling together to do hampers for the less fortunate in the community at Christmas. “If you want to raise money for your favorite charity or team, we would love to help you organize your event here at The Paddlewheeler Pub,” says Janet.

Since July 2011, Columbia Square Animal Hospital has committed itself to building partnerships with pets and their owners. This award-winning hospital strives for the best in veterinary care with its cutting-edge veterinary services backed by its commitment and compassion to its patients and their families. “Everyone here always ensures that our clients and their beloved pets are being cared for and prioritized,” says Dr. Avtar Brar, business owner and veterinarian. “We have a great team that truly loves animals and works hard every day to provide excellent care for all. We are thankful to our loyal customers for trusting us and recommending (us) to their friends and relatives (family).” Dr. Brar has spent the past 30 years dedicated to the care of domestic pets. He attended veterinary school in his native India. After completing his education, Dr. Brar worked in a mixed animal practice, as well as at Nestle. “After working there for many years, I decided to move to Canada and got my license with North American Veterinary Licensing Board,” he says. He then went on to work as an Associate Veterinarian for a number of years prior to going into practice on his own. Columbia Square Animal Hospital cares for all domestic animals, but cater mostly to cats and dogs. The hospital provides a wide range of services including: general exams, annual vaccinations, dentistry, lab procedures and diagnostics such as X-rays, ultrasounds and in-house lab testing, as well as different types of surgeries such as routine and orthopedics. His hospital thrives because of a strong work ethic, a love for its “patients” and its team of professional and talented members. “I try to get to know each staff member and we all work together in a way that optimizes results for our clients,” Dr. Brar explains.

One of the longest running premiere arts and cultural festivals in British Columbia has garnered yet another Readers’ Choice award. Over the past 45 years, the Annual Hyack Festival has become an iconic local celebration, featuring multicultural activities for all ages, free live performances by well-known Vancouver-based Indie artists, great food, as well as the highly anticipated Hyack International Parade.

The award-winning artisan bakery has been serving up delicious, tempting sweets for more than 18 years in Vancouver before opening its second location in Sapperton in 2013. The reason for its phenomenal success, says its owner Marco Cornale is that “We are a true neighbourhood bakery. I strive to always give my customers a fresh product using the best ingredients each and every time, in addition to excellence in customer service so that they come back for more.” This authentic family run Italian bakery uses original, generation-old recipes, coupled with the best ingredients possible. The result? Some of the most tantalizing pastries, breads, cookies, cupcakes, biscotti, cakes, macaroons and more this side of Italy. Marco credits much of his success to his “amazing and friendly staff who are like family to me.” “I have staff that have been with me for 19 years,” he adds. “My three daughters work in the business as well, with Bianca running my second location here in New Westminster, Gianna baking and Michela working in customer service. It has been a joy having them grow up in the business and now being such an important part of the bakery.” Over the years, Fratelli has garnered numerous accolades, including the prestigious Golden Plates award, as well as a several Reader’s Choice awards, to name a few. Marco says he is

extremely grateful for the way New Westminster residents have embraced his bakery. To that end, he regularly donates all of his leftover baked goods to the New West Union Gospel Mission, United Baptist Church, after school programs at neighbouring elementary schools, as well as countless cake donations to various charities throughout the year.

1. Music Lessons Are Number One. Do you want to learn music at a place where the music education is the most important thing? At Music Box Music Academy your music lessons are our business. Giving you a great learning experience is our # 1 priority. We are not a piano store or dance studio that also has music lessons, or an instrument retailer that has lessons in tiny little rooms with little or no accountability from the instructors. At Music Box our mission is providing you with a great music learning experience. 2. Free, all inclusive recitals & masterclasses! We are the only music school in New Westminster that offers not only free recitals, but also free masterclasses. Every parent just wants to know how their child is doing and if they are really progressing. The best way for a parent to understand if their investment in lessons is really worth it, is to have their child participate in a recital. In June and December many of our students choose to perform in our optional biannual recitals. For our students these recitals are free and unlike many schools, parents never have to pay recital participation or admission fees. This can only be found at Music Box.
