Taxes hit industry hardest BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
New Westminster’s commercial property taxes are slightly higher than the regional average, but city hall believes that other factors compensate for the higher tax rate. City council received an overview of the property tax burden and tax rates for non-residential property classes at its July 8 meeting. Although the city’s business class tax rate ranks fifth out of 17 in the region and is slightly higher than the regional average, a staff report said that lower rents and lower property values help “offset” the higher tax rate. “Typically rents tend to be lower in New West than in Burnaby or East Vancouver,” said Randy Grant, the city’s manager of collection services. “Having no bridges to cross was another advantage noted.” New Westminster is also attractive to businesses, said Grant, because of its proximity to Vancouver International Airport and the Surrey business community. “Those were some of the significant advantages that New Westminster had to offer,” he said of factors that compensate for higher property taxes. According to the staff report, B.C. Assessment has nine classes of property: Class 1 – residential; Class 2 – utilities; Class 3 – supportive housing; Class 4 – major industry; Class 5 – light industry; Class 6 – business and other; Class 7 – managed forest (none in New Westminster); Class 8 – recreation/non-profit (places of worship etc.); and Class 9 – farm (one in New Westminster). The city currently gets about 60 per cent of its taxes from the residential property class and about 40 per cent from other classes. The report states that business and industry representatives have complained since the early 1990s that they pay a disproportionate share of the property tax burden and have been advocating that the distribution of the tax burden be based on the “consumption” of tax-supported city services by each class. While no municipality has

In addition to being an environmentally sound initiative, she believes the program provides a good opportunity to teach son Max about the environment.
Energy Save New West launches BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
The City of New Westminster is offering 100 free home-energy assessments to local residents on a first-come, first-serve basis. In partnership with B.C. Hydro and FortisBC, the city is launching the Energy Save New West program this month. The program is designed to improve the energy efficiency of low-rise residential homes in New Westminster and make it easier for homeowners to access incentives available through LiveSmart B.C., as well as specific heating, lighting and appliance rebates provided by Fortis B.C. and B.C. Hydro. “Energy Save New West is a key step in achieving the energy conserva-

tion and greenhouse gas reduction goals in the city’s Community Energy and Emissions Plan,” Mayor Wayne Wright said in a press release. “Our goal is to have 200 homeowners registered in the program at the end of 12 months, with 100 homes having completed the initial energy assessment and proceeding with energy upgrades and improvements to their homes.” According to the city, the process begins with an initial energy assessment of a home. Energy Save will provide a certified energy advisor (City Green Solutions) to all registered homeowners, and the energy advisor will schedule a convenient time to conduct the assessment according to provincial and federal guidelines. “Energy Save New West covers the

cost of a detailed energy assessment conducted by a certified energy advisor, which would normally be paid for by the homeowner,” said Norm Connolly, the city’s community energy manager. “The program is designed to make it easy for homeowners to get a comprehensive energy picture of their home, as well as cost-effective strategies to improve energy efficiency.” New Westminster resident Nicole Prior is happy to see this initiative underway in New Westminster. When she purchased her 1930 Craftsman-style bungalow in 2011, the previous owner had already made some energy improvements such as a hot water on-demand system, external heat pump, and energy efficient windows.

Local grad begins life journey with new car BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER
Just before her name was called, Julie Graham turned to her friend and said she doesn’t win these kinds of things. The 17-year-old was referring to the grand finale prize in a random draw at the New Westminster Secondary School dry grad event last month. “And the minute I said that, my name was called,” recalls Julie, who is now the proud owner of a white 1997 Audi A6 AWD Wagon, which was generously donated by Key West Ford to the high school’s dry grad event. After she won the coveted prize, Julie sat down, and her win sunk in. She absorbed the realization and thought, “I have a car.” Her next thought was to call her mom, who happens to be local school trustee Lisa Graham. “She thought I was calling for her to come pick me up,” Julie says. But Graham’s days of driving Julie will soon be behind her now that her daughter has some hot white wheels to tour town in. The only problem: Julie doesn’t have her learner’s licence yet. But the new car has been a wonderful motivation. “I’m hoping to get it before the end of July,” Julie says about her learner’s. Julie loves the new car – especially the sunroof – and says she has no plans to sell it. As for her future goals, Julie wants to be a high school teacher. This fall, she’ll start at Douglas College, and she earned a bursary from the Retired Teachers’ Fund. The dry grad event – called Carnival Chaos – was a huge success. Three hundred students and 50-plus volunteers attended the event, which was sponsored by many local businesses and community service groups. It was held at the newly opened Queensborough Community Centre, Debbie Wardle, one of the grad parent volunteers, wrote in an email to The Record.

New West food banks struggle to stock shelves BY CAYLEY DOBIE REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
For the more than 28,000 people in the Lower Mainland that rely on food banks to make ends meet, summer can be especially difficult, according to food bank staff. New Westminster has two food bank locations, and each summer it’s a struggle to keep the shelves stocked. From 2011 to 2012, overall usage of the depots increased eight per cent for July and August, according to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. In order to help bridge this gap, the food bank society is trying something a little different. “In an attempt to be a better food bank and increase the amount of nutrition that we’re able to provide, we’ve totally retooled (the handout bags),” says Kay Thody, communications director for the society. Because the food bank usually starts running out of donations that come in during the holiday season in the summer, the society relies on purchasing food in order
But Thody says it’s not just the society to meet the needs of its clients, Thody that needs to rethink what’s being donatsays. “We are really fortunate where we are, ed.

nurses created a template for the society that outlined which foods were the healthiest and which should be removed from the food packages. “A lot of the tinned products have a tendency to be very, very high in sodium,” she explains. “Sodium is one of those sneaky detrimental things, and so often times there’s products available at a very similar price that is a healthier option.” The society is now moving towards items such as 100 per cent fruit juices instead of fruit cocktail, and whole grains instead of white flour and sugar. In support of the society’s shift away from traditional handouts to a model that fosters self-sufficiency and healthy eating, the society is hosting an event on July 22. Seeding Change is a day-long event where people can come by and learn about sustainable gardening, plant a seed in one of the society’s pallets or take some seeds home. The event starts at 7 a.m. and runs until 7 p.m. at the north side of the Vancouver Art Gallery at 750 Hornby St. For more information, visit www.food bank.bc.ca.

other municipalities in the region, and although it may be prudent from time to time to adjust class tax rates and shift the tax burden between classes to remain competitive in the region, for now at least the primary property taxation policy should be to continue to set tax rates that are sufficient to fund city services, maintain capital assets and maintain tax stability,” con-

Council considering Christmas on Columbia BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
The temperature may be rising in the Royal City, but city hall is thinking of Christmas decor. In November 2012, council directed staff to hire a consultant to consider the design, construction and installation of swag lights for Columbia Street. Many longtime residents have fond recollections of the swag lighting that decorated Columbia Street each Christmas season. A recent staff report provided council with details and costs for the four options
put forward by the consultant: an exact replica of the original swag lights that decorated Columbia Street ($13,785 per fixture); a more ornate version of the historic swag lights ($6,780 per fixture); a modern interpretation of the swag lights ($5,475 per fixture); and an accessorized design including a new crown motif that could be changed to offer seasonal motifs ($7,350 per fixture). Coun. Bill Harper concurred with a staff recommendation that supported an exact replica of the light swags that once graced Columbia Street. Staff recommended the installation of two swags at either side of Sixth Street.
Mayor Wayne Wright said he had originally proposed the idea of swag lighting on Columbia Street, but is was concerned about the plan after learning the costs. He said the costs related to the labour involved from the electrical department to install and fix the lighting could be problematic. The staff report noted that new street poles would need to be installed to accommodate the swag lights, as the existing poles wouldn’t be able to support the load of any swags. Coun. Jaimie McEvoy said the “exact replica” option is quite a bit more expensive than the “accessorized design” option,
which was his preference. He said it’s half the cost and also allows the city to switch out the light bulbs and change the colours to suit different occasions. “You can imagine the possibilities,” he said. The city has allocated $30,000 in this year’s capital budget for the project, which would allow the city to buy two swag lights. The city’s electrical utility budget would cover the installation costs, including the poles, bases, foundations and mounting of the swag. Council tabled the report until its Aug. 26 meeting.

For some reason, it’s easier to think In New Westminster, the society also about helping the hungry at Christmas gets help from the community garden than in the heat of July. society, with food grown on plots specifically for the food bank by volunteers, But people who live on the razor’s edge of poverty are in need of free of charge.

But during the summer, the food banks’ needs are just as great as the rest of the year. So consider how you can help, even when there isn’t a jolly old man in red reminding you about why giving is so important. The food banks can always use cash donations. This allows the society to purchase food items they are low on, particularly fresh produce. If you do plan to donate food, consider what non-perishable items you’d
want to feed your own family. Because whether or not people have enough money to eat well, they still have the same nutritional needs as anyone else. Donating dozens of packets of gelatin dessert and drink mix crystals isn’t likely to help those in need stay healthy and strong throughout this challenging time in their lives.

Liberals looking good so far IN THE HOUSE
he summer legislative session is now half over, so it’s time for some observations and thoughts about what we’ve seen so far in the house: ◗The multitude of new faces around the legislature has changed the atmosphere for the better. There are more than 30 newbies, and perhaps because they’ve had to spend so much time trying not to get lost in the maze of corridors, they haven’t had time to descend to the level of bitter partisanship that characterized the place the past few years. Let’s hope this continues. ◗ The new government cabinet, which has a number of rookies, has so far performed fairly well. Education Minister Peter Fassbender has navigated the usually rocky shoals of the government’s relationship with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation fairly well, and Transportation Minister Todd Stone has ably deflected any criticism hurled at him by the Opposition. Veteran MLA Bill Bennett is new to the energy portfolio and has his hands full with B.C. Hydro, but he acknowledges there are problems at the Crown Corporation that need to be dealt with and
not swept under the carpet. One newcomer, AttorneyGeneral Suzanne Anton, has had a bit of a shaky start, but she’ll have time to grow into her role. New Health Minister Terry Lake has already had to deal with controversy (over a smoking cessation drug) but has weathered things well. ◗ The NDP Opposition has yet to find its sea legs in the house. A number of veteran MLAs, no doubt devastated by the prospects of another four long years in Opposition, appear to have checked out, at least for now. It’s unlikely the NDP caucus will be re-energized any time soon, as it will probably take months for caucus members to get over that unexpected election loss. The only two members who seem to have their heads fully in the game right now are John Horgan and Mike Farnworth, and that may be because both may once again find themselves in a party leadership race should Adrian Dix step down as leader. ◗ A whole bunch of issues that dominated question period, and much of the political debate before the election are now mostly off the table. Remember the NDP’s constant demand for an inquiry into the sale of B.C. Rail? Goodbye! The attacks on Premier Christy Clark for constantly campaigning? No more. Even the ethnic memo furor, which the NDP is trying to revisit, has lots its edge. ◗ Speaking of the premier, she
Dead tree had to be removed Dear Editor:
Re: Mature evergreen massacred, Letters to the editor, The Record, July 5. I am writing in response to the letter on the removal of trees due to the construction of the new elementary school on the site of the former Saint Mary’s Hospital. The school district and the City of New Westminster have been working with the Ministry of Education to develop a plan for the replacement of New Westminster Secondary School, construction of a new west side middle school and the replacement of John Robson Elementary school in order to provide modern educational facilities for over 3,000 students as well as family support and recreation facilities for the entire community. Following sig◗Legislature Page 7 nificant public consultation over a two-year period,
the use of the Saint Mary’s site for the elementary school was identified as the best solution. The site is relatively small with significant elevation change from the Royal Avenue side down to the Agnes Street side of the property. It is also partially owned by the city for use as a community park. It is regretted that the monkey tree at the corner of Merivale and Agnes died last year. Our initial plan was to retain the tree as a focal point for the new school. The arbourist report concluded that the tree was dead and needed to be removed. The large fir tree near the corner of Royal and Merivale was adjacent to the new school. During excavation for the foundation for the new school, the contractor encountered major root structures which had to be removed. As a result the large tree was considered unsafe by the project team and had to be removed. Relocating a tree of this size was ◗Tree Page 7

Electronic billboards are a hazard for city traffic
You may not have to turn your head to see those electronic billboards, they are so in your face. But you do have to focus your eyes to read the print. The images, too, changing every 10 or 15 seconds, bright flashing colours – all compel the eye and mind while navigating bridges. That makes them a traffic hazard, especially on the narrow, busy Queensborough and Pattullo bridges. I avoid TV, but these commercials now invade my consciousness whenever I cross any bridge. They say high-density development is good for the city’s economy. Yet we seem to depend on traffic hazards, consumer
hype and social problems from gambling to provide our capital infrastructure. These social costs, along with regular tax increases, seem to be the price we pay to overcrowd our city. Every council seems to forget that many new people require much new capital cost. If population growth were the answer to economic health, the world would not be on the brink of global economic collapse.

Liberal government’s budget really irritated a number of NDP MLAs, who voiced their objections on social media. Weaver told me he voted for it because the election outcome made it obvious people want a balanced budget, so he was following the public’s lead. He said he didn’t necessarily think the budget will actually be balanced when all is said and done, but he was in favour of at least the concept of a balanced budget (something that sets him apart from the NDP). ◗ Clark has been able to reward most members of
her caucus with cabinet posts, parliamentary secretary appointments, committee memberships and caucus positions, most of which come with a boost in salary. Two MLAs, however, have been frozen out: Moira Stilwell and Sam Sullivan. Stilwell has been on the outs with Clark for months, and Sullivan beat Clark for the Vancouver mayoralty some years back. It looks like Clark is not in a forgiving mood towards some people. I wonder whether she will display a similar attitude to some key people in the business community who were less than loyal before her miracle win.

Child-care plans earn award BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
New Westminster has struck gold with its child-care strategy. The Planning Institute of British Columbia has awarded the City of New Westminster a 2013 Award for Excellence in Planning Practice for its child-care strategy. “The City of New Westminster is committed to being a leader and active partner in the development of a comprehensive child-care system,” said Mayor Wayne Wright in a press release. “We are pleased that our work in creating the child-care strategy has been recognized with this award as it underscores the importance of child care in our city and the role it plays in combating child poverty.” Lisa Spitale, the city’s chief administrative officer, told council that the award is due in part to the “fantastic work” undertaken by senior social planner John Stark. She said 86 per cent of the actions recommended in the 2009 strategy are fully completed, with the remaining recommendations to be finished in 2013. To date, 18 of the 21 recommendations actions in the strategy have been fully completed. Actions in the strategy include the construction of the first civic child-care facility to be operated by a non-profit provider, the development of a child-care reserve fund, the establishment of a civic child-care grant program and the implementation of a child-care protocol between the city and the school district.

For the kids: Ailah Dalley enjoys an activity at Queens Avenue Daycare, one of the non-proﬁt child-care centres that received a city grant. According to the City of New Westminster, the implementation of these actions has resulted in a net increase of 324 licensed child-care spaces in New Westminster between October 2008 and January 2012. The city states that 60 per cent of these were created as a result of a direct city action, such as a development variance permit, lease of city-owned land or a rezoning. Since January 2012, 104 new licensed child-care spaces have been created, and an additional 153

An established military surplus business on 12th Street is seeking to expand the building to allow more commercial space and add residential units. Council has received a preliminary staff report about a development permit and development variance permit being sought for 744 12th St. and 1204 Eighth Ave. A staff report stated that the applicant is proposing to consolidate the two lots and built a two-storey addition that consists of additional commercial space, space for entrances to the residential units and three residential units on the second level. Although the new commercial space would require nine parking spaces and the residential units would need four parking spaces and one visitor’s space, no parking is being provided as part of the application. “I am having great difficulty with what I saw in ◗Surplus Page 10

Uptown Unplugged Westminster Centre attracted quite a crowd to its inaugural weekend of street performances. The Uptown Property Group launched Uptown Unplugged, a new street performance series in front of the mall at 555 Sixth St., on July 13. The Hyack Festival Association is helping to select performers who will take to the stage every Saturday and Sunday between noon and 5 p.m. A stage has been erected in Westminster Centre’s plaza, and tables and chairs will be placed in the plaza.

this proposal,” said Coun. Betty McIntosh. “They can’t design any parking?” The development variance permit application would vary sections of the zoning bylaw relating to commercial parking, residential parking, residential visitor parking and offstreet loading. A staff report states that the proposal supports heritage objectives by retaining and reusing the 1938 building and social objectives by providing market rental housing. If a completely new building was proposed, there would be no reason to consider a parking variance of this magnitude. “However if the existing building is to be retained, then the provision of any parking on this site becomes a challenge,” stated the report. ◗ continued from page 8

Jim Hurst, a development planner with the city, told council that the applicant would have to step up the building in order to extend the commercial space and parking under the building. “It would not give him, from his opinion, usable floor space,” he said. Coun. Chuck Puchmayr said Dave’s Surplus (now called DS Tactical) is a “very viable” business. “Police come from all across the Lower Mainland to buy their supplies, legitimate supplies,” he said. “It is a really strong anchor business for 12th Street.” At its July 8 meeting, council received the preliminary staff report. The report says the public should be consulted about the proposal before council formally considers the application.

ON DUTY: BEHIND THE SCENES AT ROYAL COLUMBIAN HOSPITAL
Imaging offers challenging career In a special series, reporter Marelle Reid has been chatting with the people who make RCH run. This is the final instalment in the series.
andy Rai is an ultrasound technician who has been working at Royal Columbian Hospital for almost 20 years. The Record caught up with Rai to find out what it’s like in the medical imaging department.
Question: Can you describe your role? Answer: I think we’re kind of like, I don’t want to say detectives, but we’re looking for causes of patients’ symptoms and letting the radiologists know what we find. If we’re looking at the abdomen ON MY BEAT Marelle Reid ultrasound, we’re looking at their solid organs, at the midline, the pancreas, the liver; if we’re doing obstetrics work, depending on what stage of the pregnancy, we’re either dating the pregnancy or we’re doing a detailed scan of the baby. There’s a checklist of many things we need to measure and look for and document and say whether they’re normal or abnormal. If it’s vascular, we’re looking at the arteries and plaque and looking at the stenosis in the vessels. Q: You originally worked as an X-ray technician before getting retrained to work as an ultrasound technician. Why the switch? A: I still wanted to work in medical imaging but in something different. It’s still diagnostic imaging, but it’s just a different modality. I had to go to BCIT – at that time it was for a full year – and then went into ultrasound, and I’ve been doing ultrasound for about 10 years. Q: What’s the most interesting thing about your job? A: Each case is different. Each patient is different. There’s a lot of things that we know we need to do, but to try to obtain those views we have to improvise, usually, depending on the pathology and the patient’s condition. I’ve been doing it for 10 years, and I’m not bored yet. I also work with a great bunch of radiologists, a great bunch of co-workers, and it’s a really good environment to learn. Q: What is the most challenging aspect of your job? A: There is an increased (chance for)

She’s been doing ultrasound work for about 10 years. repetitive stress injury because of our job. We’re scanning, we’re putting pressure on, and it’s repetitive because it’s not the same motions, but we’re scanning constantly and sometimes you have to push a bit harder. … It’s not like a machine that you can just put the patient in and do the scan. Q: How many patients do you see in a shift? A: I think we scan about 12 to 13 patients per day in a regular shift, and then each patient is different. Some can take 20 minutes, whereas some can take an hour depending on the pathology we’re looking for and the difficulty of the case.
Q: Is there a myth you’d like to dispel about your job? A: People think that if you’ve got the probe in your hand, it’s just a matter of kind of waving (it around). You have to know your pathology, you have to know your anatomy. You have to know what to look for before you find something that’s wrong. ... Sure, it’s a machine, but as technologists, we’re using the equipment to diagnose. ... It’s not as easy as some people would like to think. Q: Is it really necessary to drink a whole litre of water before a pelvic scan? A: No. We need a full bladder to have that window for us to see the uterus and
ovaries, but most patients that drink the full litre are too full. We’ve adjusted our protocols. You need to be full, but you shouldn’t be completely uncomfortable. Q: What did you want to be when you were a kid? A: I wanted to be a teacher. I actually ended up getting a scholarship to BCIT, so I had a couple of options when I applied and (the) one I thought was most interesting was medical radiography. Q: Do you wear scrubs? A: I don’t wear scrubs. We usually wear lab coats. Some of us still wear scrubs, but I haven’t worn scrubs since working in X-ray.

There’s a lot to explore on Le Saigonnais Restaurant’s menu, and plenty of choices that will make you feel, for a few minutes, that you’re far away from New Westminster. Open since November, 2011 its owner and executive chef, Tina Dang, has managed to garner rave reviews and a loyal following. Tina’s passion for her native country’s cuisine is reﬂected in each dish that leaves the kitchen. To fans of Vietnamese food, Le Saigonnais will expand your taste buds with offerings that will entice you back over and over again. Tina grew up in Vietnam, learning to cook from her mother and those before her. The cuisine is Vietnamese at heart; two of the most mouthwatering of Tina’s signature dishes are The Royal Platter and Saigon Style Mussels. The seasoned chef and 2010 graduate of the VCC-Culinary Art program is always looking for ways to create new dishes that her loyal clientele will love. Due to overwhelming response, Tina introduced the Vietnamese Sub. “We have four choices: traditional, which comes with pork ham and pate; grilled chicken (our most popular); homemade meatballs with tomato sauce; or the charbroiled pork patties,” says her daughter Quyen Quach. Of course, no Vietnamese place would be found without pho, the national dish of beef broth, rice noodles and various types of beef, augmented with fresh herbs and bean sprouts. A reviewer on Urban Spoon declared “Le Saigonnais serves great pho - as it’s pleasantly large, has lots of ﬂavour, and isn’t too fatty.” Another fan says “It’s good to know there’s a place nearer to home that offers up a variety of interesting Vietnamese fare. Very highly recommended.”

◗ CITY HALL IN BRIEF
New townhouses proposed for Queensborough BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
Two new townhouse developmentsarebeingproposedonEwen Avenue in Queensborough. The city has received an application to rezone 746 Ewen Ave. so a 30-unit townhouse development can be built at the site. Council directed staff to bring forward the rezoning application for its consideration when the normal staff and committee review process is complete. The city has also received an application to rezone 728 and 734 Ewen Ave. and to dedicate a portion of 220 Campbell St. for roadway so a 37-unit townhouse
development can be built. Staff will report back to council when the staff and committee review process is complete.
City banks money for public art projects New Westminster is banking on future public art and civic facilities. The city is taking the steps needed to establish a public art reserve fund, which would build funds for use on public arts projects in the city. It is also establishing civic facilities replacement reserves to set aside funds for the replacement of Canada Games Pool and

the city’s contribution toward the replacement of Massey Theatre.
Changes to storage regulations on hold
City council isn’t quite ready to deal with revised regulations for the storage of shipping containers in industrial areas. On July 8, council received a report about proposed amendments to the zoning bylaw that are aimed at removing dated terms and conflicts with permitted uses in the existing bylaw. Staff is proposing that outdoor storage be allowed only in the heavy industrial districts and that shipping storage be permit-
ted in both the light industrial and heavy industrial districts. Although staff had recommended that council give first and second readings to the zoning amendment bylaw, council tabled the report. Mayor Wayne Wright said he’s received lots of comments from people in Queensborough and would like more information before considering the staff recommendation.
Mall atrium gets OK
Royal City Shopping Centre Ltd. has received the green light to create a new atrium-style entrance at the mall. Council has approved a devel-

opment permit so the mall can make changes to entrance at 610 Sixth St. “The applicants propose to develop a new atrium-style entrance to the mall,” said a staff report. “The glass atrium entrance at the corner of Eighth Street and Sixth Avenue would be altered as a result of this new entrance, but that space would remain as separate occupancy. The new entry would provide escalators and elevators to all floors and the roof parking area.” Mayor Wayne Wright said a new urban Wal-Mart will be going into the mall, but the property manager has yet to confirm the new anchor tenant.

For nearly eight decades, cycling enthusiasts and die-hard riders have relied on the expertise and wide selection of bicycles and accessories from the experts - Cap’s Bicycle Shop. Established in 1932, the bicycle shop is the oldest family-owned and operated shop in the Lower Mainland, offering full year round bicycle sales and service. “We specialize in bicycles and have models to suit any rider,” says owner Gordon Hobbis. The store carries everything from beach cruisers to road racers, to kids’ bikes, mountain bikes, folding bikes and electric assist bikes. “There is also a wide selection of cycling specific clothing, shoes, helmets and accessories as well,” says Gordon. Now more than ever, people are getting out of their cars and commuting by bicycle. Whether it’s for fitness, fun or going green, riding a bike is trendy in more ways than one. “Riding to work or for errands is a great way to save money on gas and is good for the planet,” says Gordon. “Most trips of five km or less can be done as fast on a bike as in a car.” Folding bikes have become increasingly popular for those who live in condos or have limited storage space, as well as for those wanting to combine cycling with transit. “Ride a bike to SkyTrain, fold it and go… Any station, any train, any time with a folding bike,” he adds. When Cap Hobbis sold his first bike in 1932 and opened the store in Sapperton New Westminster in 1940, he couldn’t have known the legacy he would leave behind. Its tremendous success and longevity can be attributed to a number of factors, says Gordon. “It’s the place to trust for your bicycle needs,” he says. “Quality products, knowledgeable staff and a commitment to our customers’ satisfaction has always been at the core of Cap’s Bicycle Shop.” Cap’s is more than just bicycles. They believe in corporate social responsibility, be it donations or by participation. The company is involved in a number on nonprofit organizations, including the New Westminster Police Soccer School, New Westminster Fire Department Hockey Game, sponsorship of two teams on the Ride to Conquer Cancer, as well as the Royal City Rotary Club. “Ten years ago Cap’s re-established the Sapperton Street Festival, which has grown to attract more than 10,000 to East Columbia Street,” Gordon says. “This fundraising event helps build community in Sapperton and provides the business along East Columbia with valuable exposure to future customers. The event raises money for the Royal Columbian Hospital Foundation and over the years in excess of $40, 000 has been raised.” Let the friendly, knowledgeable staff at Cap’s Bicycle Shop help you choose the best bicycle for your riding needs. Gordon and his professionally trained staff look forward to welcoming you at Cap’s Bicycle Shop, 434a East Columbia St. New Westminster.

Best of the season came at best time for senior A Salmonbellies BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
Nothing less than the best will do for the New Westminster Salmonbellies. The senior A ’Bellies played what was arguably their best game of the Western Lacrosse Association season, downing the Victoria Shamrocks 13-12 at Queen’s Park last Thursday. With four games left in the regular season, the win put New Westminster instantly back in the playoff mix, but with a tough week upcoming against Burnaby at home on Thursday and a return
match in Victoria the following day. In New West, the ’Bellies got big games from Jordan McBride and rookie righthander Keegan Bal, who had a career night with four goals and two assists. First-year starter Neil Tyacke was also sharp, stopping 48 of 60 shots on goal. “It felt like there was a lot of energy in the building,” said New Westminster head coach Steve Goodwin. “We got a little life with Maple Ridge losing those two games.” The Salmonbellies trail the slumping fourthplace Burrards, who have dropped seven of their last
10 games to date, by just three points, with a game in hand. New West went on a four-goal run early in the opening period against the ’Rocks, sparked by the first of two first-period goals by rookie transition runner Jeff Cornwall. The ’Bellies continued to put the pressure on the visitors, staying at least one goal ahead for most of the way on goals by McBride and Bal until Kyle Ross potted the game-winner with just over four minutes left to play. “We’re getting closer,” Goodwin said. “We need to do what we can. We played as well as we can
play (against Victoria). We ran hard.” For the rest of the season, it’s up to the players to recapture that effort each and every outing, Goodwin added. “This is a season that we and other teams are proving that if you’re not on and don’t have your momentum going – it’s a difficult league,” he said. The next step is to go on that run.” New West will get a chance to stop Burnaby’s three-game win streak at Queen’s Park Arena on Thursday. The following night, New West is in Victoria. Both games are 7:45 p.m. starts.
Peewee boys win B.C. A1 lacrosse title BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
New Westminster ’s peewee A1 boys’ lacrosse team was the Cinderella man of the provincial championships in Kamloops. The league’s fourth-place-finishing Salmonbellies rattled the A1 establishment by knocking off Coquitlam for the first time this season – 6-4 in the semifinal – to advance to the gold-medal match. In the final, the peewee ’Bellies responded with a 7-5 victory over
Ridge Meadows, the second straight win over the Fraser Valley association. “We tried to motivate the kids by telling them to play for each other, and they responded,” said New West coach Jason Bishop. After dropping a 7-3 decision to Coquitlam in the opening game of the provincials, the Royal City boys found themselves trailing 3-1 heading into the final period. New West got a spark from Andrew Bishop, who tallied just his second goal this season to start the
period. First-year runner Kai George knotted the score 3-3 later in the period. Tied 4-4 with a minute left to play, provincial MVP Kip Guthrie set up Ben Stewart at the side of the crease for the game-winning tally. New West also scored into an empty net. New West also found new legs against a Ridge-Meadows team that had held them to just three goals in three games during the regular ◗Peewee Page 19

Peewee: Bantam A1s at provincials in Delta this week game before finding out the following day he had been playing with a broken wrist. Captain Noah Armitage led the team throughout the year, while firstyear Austin Ducommun also made a significant contribution. “It’s a tough thing to pull off. We just happened to rise to another level. We climbed the mountain,” Bishop said. “I’ve never been more proud of
a team.” Cedar Rutherford was named New Westminster’s fair play award winner. New Westminster’s bantam A1 team vie for a second provincial boys’ title, beginning today (Wednesday) in Delta. Gold-medal games will be played on Sunday at the Ladner Lesiure Centre.

we do all year,” said Goss. “But we always get it right. “It was a great weekend for New West lacrosse. I’m so proud of them. … (The girls) really wanted this win. They hadn’t beaten (New West) all season. The difference was we stopped thinking about what they do and started thinking what do we do best. “They went out and worked their butts off. They got every loose ball. It was the best defence I’ve seen my team play.” Jessica Goodwin led the midget 2s with a pair of goals, while Alex Lund-Murray garnered the shutout. Gaby Jones had a strong outing for the silver medalwinning junior 1 ’Bellies. Second keeper Bonita Chafe had a standout performance in New West 2’s 7-4 victory over Coquitlam 2 in the round robin. The final was also the third title and last minor league game for fair play winner Linzy Butler, Emily Muir and team leader Kirsti Shanks. Meghan Scott will also graduate with two straight B.C. titles. Leah Catton also ended her minor junior career in New West. Lauren Stewart was named New West 1’s fair play winner. Burnaby’s Sydney Roy earned both the junior fair play and provincial MVP awards, playing for Coquitlam 2. “The girls are getting better – they’re playing longer. They have their sticks in their hands just like the boys,” said New West junior coach Kevin Ballance. “It’s good to see.”

RECREATIONAL PROPERTY IN BC:
BARGAINS & BOOMERS
Many boomers have fond youthful memories of idyllic summer vacations ﬁlled with smores by the ﬁre, games of hide n’seek and endless hours lying on the beach. Today, it is those boomers who are reenergizing the demand for recreational properties across much of the province. “Everybody dreams of owning recreational property and lots of boomers are getting on the bandwagon and buying,” says Whistler Real Estate Company’s realtor Patrick Kelly. Recreational property is deﬁned as a second home; that cabin in the woods, that rural retreat, the condo on a golf course, the cottage on the lake or the beach house. “Primarily, it’s a lifestyle decision rather than money-making one,” says Kelly. “People often buy to have it as a family legacy.” In Whistler, recreational property also encompasses time share condos and hotel rooms. After a dismal few years in the early
2000’s, when the market for recreational property went ﬂat, Kelly says thankfully the tides are shifting. There are many factors for this: easy credit, faith that real estate will keep its value and an economy that is doing fairly well. Sechelt is showing some improvement as prices are 15 per cent lower than they were ﬁve years ago. Bill Binnie, owner/broker at Royal LePage, admits sales have been slow in the past year but the recent provincial election seems to be buoying sales. “The Sunshine Coast in particular with its quaint communities with many amenities, from Gibsons to Sechelt to Edgemont and everywhere in between, is starting to sell,” says Binnie. Although much of the province’s vacation hot spots are experiencing increased sales, there are exceptions. The Gulf Islands have seen its fair share of ups and downs, says Janet Moore with Royal
LePage (Nanaimo Realty). “The Gulf Islands certainly have their challenges, one being the commute … often, people have to take two ferries to get to their vacation home,” she says. “Our other challenge is that many people went south of the border for recreational properties because they are 50 per cent less than here.” The best deals right now are in Thetis, Chemainus, Ladysmith and Yellow Point. “A property on Thetis Island listed for more than half a million and sold for $356,000,” Moore adds. “A Ladysmith waterfront assessed for $425,000 sold for $75,000 less than its assessed value.” In the recently published Landcor Report by Landcor Data Corporation, which looks at where people are buying, it states that “Of the 89,103 recreational titles identiﬁed by Landcor, 87,025 or almost 98 per cent are registered to Canadian addresses: B.C. 80,060;
Alberta 5 ,678 ; Ontario 713; with 574 scattered in other provinces. The foreign contingent: USA 1,551; Germany 159; UK 103 with the other 265 titles worldwide with Oman, China and a bunch of others a mere one title apiece.” To people sitting on the fence, debating whether to spend their hard-earned money on recreational property, the report states: “Don’t wait and buy land, buy land and wait.”

July 29, 1940 – June 30, 2013 Born in Manchester, England, in the early months of the Second World War; died prematurely in Burnaby BC, just shy of his 73rd birthday. Ed was a lifelong cyclist and fitness enthusiast. He died on his beloved bike, in a losing battle with a hit-and-run driver. Ed was a gifted musician, poet, artist, craftsman, and athlete. A wordsmith, wit, and lifelong rebel. He loved to challenge the norm, rally against injustice, root for the underdog, and stand up to bullies of any kind. He was proud of his kids Chelsey, Aaron, and Kira and devoted to his grandkids Kade and Jordyn. He loved a good argument, especially with newspapers (letters to the editor) and his sister Jan. An Irish-style wake will be held at 2:00 pm on Tuesday July 30, 2013 at the Burnaby Rowing Club 6871 Roberts Street, Burnaby. No flowers but please bring songs and stories. You are invited to leave a fond memory or message of condolence at the family’s on-line guest book at www.myalternatives.ca
