No harm from coal facility?

Environmental impact assessment gives transfer facility a green light – but not everyone’s convinced BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

To connect with Steel & Oak online, scan with Layar

A much-anticipated environmental impact assessment about a proposed coal transfer facility at Fraser Surrey Docks concludes the project will not cause significant adverse environmental or health effects. In August, Fraser Surrey Docks hired SNC-Lavalin to conduct an environmental impact assessment of its proposed coal transfer project at the site located on the banks of the Fraser River. The assessment was to include a review of the risk mitigation strategies, and all of the analysis, reports and feedback that had been compiled in the past 15 months. According to a press release from Fraser Surrey Docks, it specifically asked SNCLavalin to assess the potential for the proposed facility to adversely impact the environment and human health. In addition to reviewing material that had been previously compiled, Fraser Surrey Docks said the environmental impact assessment contains new information about the effects of the project on human and ecological health, as well as additional measures that had been required by Port Metro Vancouver. “We take our obligation to the community very seriously, as we have for over 50 years, and we recognize the importance of thoroughly reviewing all aspects of the proposed project,” stated a Fraser Surrey Docks press release.” In this regard, we sought out industry experts in the fields of toxicology, health, dust exposure, particulate matter, environment and other areas, and had

Taking a leap on hops BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

The craft beer buzz is coming to New West. Jorden Foss and James Garbutt, both 30, are set to open a local addition to the microbrewery craze – Steel & Oak Brewing Co. – by next spring. “We’d always been craft beer enthusiasts,” Foss says, explaining what’s drawn the ambitious pair to the hip world of craft beer. They insist their brewery will distinguish itself from the masses by focusing on quality over the bottom line. Producing a good product will ensure survival in a saturated market, in their view. “All three of us are completely aware

beers and four seasonals. Foss and Garbutt quenched their thirst for a brewery business during a 2012 trip to Tofino. “We went to Tofino Brewing Company, and they mentioned to us that they were running out of beer, and we looked at their operation, and thought, ‘Oh, this actually works. It could work,’” Foss says. Garbutt, a local Realtor, started crunching the numbers. “We had no past experiences with this, so it started really with reading books. I don’t read many books,” Garbutt says, laughing. “I doubled my life’s book total to four. You read these books, (they) give you a little info. We went to beer events.” ◗Hops Page 4

of that,” Foss says, referring to himself and Garbutt, as well as brewmaster Peter Schulz. Schulz apprenticed in Germany at a world-leader in specialty malts and did his master’s degree in Berlin. He is trained in the German style, which is a bottom-fermenting beer. There are two types of yeast: One (German) is bottom fermenting, one (English) is top fermenting, Schulz says. The various styles produce different flavour: bottom fermenting is cleaner and crisper; top fermenting is more aromatic, a lot more fruit, he explains. “The most commonly sold beer in the world is lager, and that’s a German style,” says Schulz, who previously worked at Russell Brewing Company in Surrey. The plan is to produce two staple

Anvil Centre rising downtown BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER

As Anvil Centre and Merchant Square go up, scaffolding is already starting to come down. Construction of the new Anvil Centre civic facility and Merchant Square office tower continue on Columbia Street. The facility is expected to be complete by May 2014. “It’s quite exciting. It doesn’t take the contractor long to do a floor, like three weeks. Within three months, quite a bit of the floors of the office tower went up,” said Terry Atherton, the city’s manager of civic buildings and properties. “They are starting to take the scaffolding down from the exterior. On Begbie, all the scaffolding is down. You can see the limestone.” The contractors recently poured cement for the 11th floor of the office tower. Once cement for the 12th floor is poured, the contractors will work on the “lower roof,” the penthouses and an elevator/ machine room that will be at the top of the office tower. “There are a few different roofs,” Atherton said. “The main roof is the one just above Level 12. They say Level 12 is going to be poured around the 22nd or 23rd of this month.” More than 40 trades continue to work on the Columbia

Street site that’s located between Eighth and Begbie streets. At this time, the City of New Westminster is anticipating the project will be completed on schedule. “It’s within a day,” Atherton said. “Remember they had the fire. They were closed for the day because of all the smoke. So it was like a day late now.” Interior walls are now being created in Anvil Centre, which is expected to be complete by May. “It’s looking very nice. When you start closing walls in and putting drywall on the interior walls, that’s when you start to see it in more of its final form,” said Atherton, who visited the site Nov. 14. “Right now, they have poured all the concrete stairs, all the staircases. You know then it is going to look spectacular. When you are on the fourth floor and you look down in the atrium, the canyon, that is when you see how elegant the building is going to be.” Lisa Spitale, the city’s chief administrative officer, recently toured Anvil Centre and was amazed at what she saw. Having last visited the site in June, she was thrilled to see the angles and details she’d viewed on blueprints come alive. “I am walking through there – I had tears in my eyes,” ◗Anvil Page 10

Competition Bureau explains decision BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

A petition to save Thrifty Foods has almost 2,000 signatures, but it’s unlikely to change the Competition Bureau’s order to sell the Sapperton grocery store. Phil Norris, competition bureau spokesperson, didn’t want to comment on the petition or whether it would have any effect on the bureau’s decision to order Thrifty’s sold. Instead, he noted the reasons the bureau marked Thrifty’s as one of the 23 stores in Western Canada that Sobeys Inc. needed to sell before it would approve the company’s purchase of Safeway Canada. “So we examined the levels of competition in all of the local markets where both a Sobeys and a Safeway store is present – other full-line grocery stores that are located in the same geographic areas as the party stores were considered to be competitors to those parties,” Norris said. “In most of the local markets, the bureau

The bureau also found that barriers of entry to be fairly high, especially with respect to real estate, in some of the locations, he said. “We’ve had a lot of calls from Winnipeg actually because we required the divestiture of a Price Chopper and four Safeway’s there,” Norris said. “It’s based on the size of the market – there’s a lot that goes into a review.” The consent agreement to have Sobeys sell the various stores is critical, he said, because without it the corporation would have too much “power” in the market. “So the consent agreement is designed to ensure that Sobeys doesn’t run the entire market in certain locations,” he said. But Norris noted that a new grocery store must go into the current Thrifty’s location before the sale is approved. As for whether that sale will go through this month, Norris said there “is an initial sale period, and that info is not public.” The announcement that Thrifty’s was being

Hops: New brewery ◗ continued from page 1

“When we were first looking at doing this the first thing we did was went to the city and asked if it was plausible that we could open a brewery here,” Foss says. Finding a location with the right zoning proved challenging. “Barry (Waitt) and Keith (Coueffin) at city hall kind of gave us this map and said, ‘you can do it here, or you can do it there,’” says Foss, who is slated to leave his job in advertising in the next couple of weeks to focus full-time on the new venture. The location they ultimately went with is an industrial site on Third Avenue, near Stewardson Way. The goal is to have the brewery produce beer and to have a separate sitting room, which will serve up tasters to sample the suds before purchase. “The nice thing about the tasting room is that you can actually come in and have a 12-ounce glass of beer on site and enjoy that,” Foss says. But they expect most of the products will be going out the door to liquor stores and pubs. When they came up with the brewery idea, how much beer you can serve at the front end was just a debate, Garbutt says. “It wasn’t set that now you can serve multiple beers to people, so we went into this with a distribution idea, and it’s just happened that it’s loosened up at the time throughout this process,” he says, referring to a provincial licence that enables small breweries to serve beer to customers onsite (in the City of New Westminster that number is currently capped at 30 people). “When we secured the lease, it was a distribution model … but now everybody’s going to breweries, filling up their growlers and taste a bit,” Garbutt says.

sold has upset a number of residents who like shopping at the grocery store that has been an anchor tenant for the Brewery District development. The store is only about two years old. Council has even come onboard in the fight to save the beloved grocery store. Mayor Wayne Wright took part in a conference call with the bureau last week. “We had a telephone conversation, a conference call, with them telling us exactly what was going on,” he said. “(Coun.) Lorrie Williams is going there to have a meeting with them. We wanted to get the information beforehand and see if there is anything she needed to bring.” The competition bureau assured the city the location

would stay a grocery store. “They can’t say anything. All their dealings with Sobeys and Safeway are confidential,” he said. Wright said the competition bureau couldn’t say when Thrifty Foods would close but indicated it wouldn’t be overnight. “This will take quite a bit of time before this changes from a Thrifty’s,” he said. “They wouldn’t tell us that – we asked them how long. They said that’s not a thing we can share with you.” A grocery store will remain at the site, said Wright, because it’s needed there. Williams has scheduled a meeting with the bureau and will stress the community’s desire to see Thrifty Foods remain at the Brewery District location.

Heritage homes featured in tour

Happy holidays: Gail Ancill is the owner of the J.J. Johnson house, one of the stops on a Homes for the Holidays tour that’s raising money for the Queen’s Park Care Centre. The tour features five of the city’s heritage homes decked out for the Christmas season.


Owners of some of New Westminster’s finest heritage homes are decking the halls for a worthy cause. The Queen’s Park Healthcare Foundation, supported by New Westminster Heritage Preservation Society, is holding a Homes for the Holidays tour of five heritage homes on Sunday, Dec. 8 from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Tour participants will be able to get some décor inspiration and shop for Christmas gifts along the way, with all proceeds going to Queen’s Park Care Centre. “They will get to go through the whole main floor of a house,” said Colleen McDonald, coordinator of Queen’s Park Care Centre’s gift shop. “Three houses will be carrying merchandise from the Queen’s Park care centre gift shop – cash only.” At other stops along the tour, people will be able to purchase books related to New Westminster: A Ride to Remember; Grace, Grit and Gusto – Profiles of Remarkable Royal City Women; and Royal City – A Photographic History of New Westminster. The tour features five homes that have been on previous heritage home tours, but this time they’re dolled up for the holidays. Homeowners who are participating in the tour are throwing themselves into the project wholeheartedly. “One person is taking a week off work to do their decorating,” McDonald marvelled. “These people are hard at work already.” The featured homes are: the 1912 John Hicks House (211 Seventh Ave.); the 1891 Thomas Thornton House (315 Princess St.); the 1905 J.J. Johnson House (125 Third St.); the 1887 Sidney and Marion Fletcher House (117 Third Ave.); and the 1913 Edward and Lavinia Savage House (502 First St.) To ensure that 300 people don’t show up at one house at the same time, tickets have a designated starting point. Tickets are $20 and are available at the Queen’s Park Care Centre gift shop (315 McBride Blvd.); Royal City Colours (700 12th St.), Cadeaux (467 East Columbia St.) DeDutch Pannekoek House (Columbia Square), Brick & Mortar Living (50 Sixth St.) or online at

for lunch, but surely there should be some guidelines about how much work outside of the Senate is advisable. After all, we strongly suspect that the senators wouldn’t be asked to sit on quite so many prestigious boards if they didn’t have the title of senator. It adds a certain cachet to boards. Well, at least it did before the last scandal. One of the 46 out of 99 senators who have other work is Larry Campbell, the former mayor of Vancouver. Campbell is the top-earning Liberal, and he sits on the boards of the Great Canadian Gaming

Corporation and Avidus Management Group. According to The Globe and Mail, Campbell has made $396,516 in cash and up to $474,848 in stock options since 2008. He abstained from voting on one gambling bill and says he checks with the ethics officer as required. We don’t question Campbell’s integrity, but we do doubt that the average taxpayer thinks the Senate is serving Canada’s best interests when nearly half of its appointees are collecting cash or cash in lieu from Canadian corporations in their off hours.

Labour’s place in B.C. has changed IN THE HOUSE



he passing last week of a former B.C. labour leader was a reminder of how much both the labour movement and the so-called “political left” have changed in this province. Jack Munro was a colourful and powerful leader of the most powerful union in this province. He led the IWA (the primary forestry workers’ union) for decades and was one of the most influential labour or political figures in the entire province. Governments of all stripes (NDP and Social Credit) were wary of taking him on. A prolonged strike in the forest industry could cripple the provincial economy, and Munro was mindful of the power he wielded. His influence was wide within the B.C. Federation of Labour, and he was often seen as the face of unionized labour, competing over time with other notables such as Len Guy, Art Gruntman, Jim Kinnaird, Art Kube and Ken Georgetti, to name just a few. In those days (the 1970s to the mid-1990s), organized labour wielded a major sword. At first, that sword was held by private sector unions, but over time public sector unions wrenched it

away to become the main power bloc in the labor movement. That is one of the crucial differences that have evolved in the house of labour. The days of private sector union domination are over, and therefore so are the days of a private sector union leader like Munro having huge influence, either on labour or government. For years, private sector strikes, some of them quite lengthy, were regular events in all kinds of industries. Now, public sector strikes (or the threat of them) are the main characteristic of any labour strife in this province. Another change from Munro’s heyday is the collapse of the forest industry. The IWA is gone, and so are many mills that provided many communities with thriving local economies. The forest industry, and its unionized workforce, no longer has the political clout it had when Munro was one of industry’s main players. And then there is the political left in B.C. For years, during Munro’s time, the left was dominated by private sector union leaders, but gradually, over time, their influence was matched and then exceeded by social activists, environmental activists and public sector union leaders. Several key episodes in the last 20 years or so show this shift. During the 1983 Solidarity crisis (brought on by the Social

The crossing ought to be reasonably safe. Enforcement works only for the duration of the enforcement. Traffic engineers know that to change driver behaviour, roads must be constructed so that the required behaviour is obvious; for exam-

ple, building a road in such a way as to create a “natural” speed limit. In the case of the intersection in question, perhaps a red arrow in addition to more obvious (lighted?) signage would help? A red light in a special place and absence of a green arrow on the more visible main signal does not seem to be sufficient. Véronique Boulanger, New Westminster

Labour: Decades have brought change ◗ continued from page 6

Credit government’s punishing restraint budget of that year), it was Munro who essentially ended an escalating protest that was headed to a provincewide general strike. Munro had no interest in taking private sector union workers off their jobs to appease social activists itching to topple an elected government, and he made that very clear. As a result, he was vilified by many of those activists, who viewed his actions as a form of betrayal. A decade or so later, a left-wing government was in power, but the environmental movement caused the NDP administration

to back down on its forest policies, constituting a landmark win for the greens in the party. During Gordon Campbell’s term in power, most of his opposition came from public sector unions, many of whose contracts he was trying to tear up or change. The private sector remained relatively quiet, and the environmental movement seemed to be biding its time. And, of course, there was the NDP’s sudden reversal on the Kinder Morgan pipeline project in the last election campaign. It was done to appease the environmental movement, but the move has revealed a breach in the

party’s relationship with so-called blue collar workers (the ones championed for so long by the likes of Munro). The NDP, the party of the left, is now almost shut out of the IWA’s old turf, as mills have closed and workers have disappeared. Its support is more concentrated in urban centres and away from many of those blue-collar workers in resource industries. One has to wonder what Munro would make of this ongoing shift in the party and movement he was once so active in. I can’t see him liking where things seem to be headed.

Changing perspective Vancouver Biennale will bring open air museum to New West next spring


Blue trees will be sprouting up in New Westminster as part of the Vancouver Biennale – but that’s just the beginning. New Westminster city council has committed $90,000 from the city’s public art reserve fund towards the Vancouver Biennale, which proposes “open air museums” in participating communities. The event gets underway in the spring of 2014 and continues into 2015. “Imagine the possibilities. Just imagine the possibilities,” Biennale Vancouver founder and president Barrie Mowatt told The Record, when asked about his message to residents. “Be ready to explore. The objective of the Biennale is to engage community, to engage community dialogue – to engage that via the arts.” Greg Magirescu, the city’s manager of arts and cultural development, said a “very exciting” opportunity came from one of the Vancouver Biennale curators from Brazil, who suggested Jose Resende’s art would fit in well in New Westminster. Mowatt said Resende’s artwork deals with transit, so it’s an ideal fit for the city, which is a regional transportation hub. “We are pleased to be in New Westminster,” Mowatt said at a reception for Resende in New Westminster. “It’s very exciting because it is an expansion of the Biennale into our fifth city. Transit is a great linkage for us, and we are very happy with that aspect.” A report from the city’s public art advi-

sory committee stated that Resende may create a public art exhibition featuring train cars in a tripod structure. His art has appeared in numerous solo and collective exhibitions. During a recent visit from Sao Paulo, Resende toured sites in New Westminster including Westminster Pier Park, Queen’s Park and Queensborough. While he had some ideas in mind before coming, he said he was rethinking his plans after seeing the city firsthand. Biennale Vancouver, which has a theme of Open Borders Crossroads Vancouver, will feature artists from Middle East, North Africa, Asia, Canada, Northern Europe and South America. “With our cities such as New Westminster, Richmond, Squamish, North Vancouver and Vancouver, it’s a really strong collaboration,” Mowatt said. “Each city is so distinctly different in terms of who they are and what they’re about. That makes it really kind of exciting for us.” In addition to the open-air museums. Vancouver Biennale features A Big Ideas education program, an international artists residency program, a tour de Biennale charity bike ride, the Conversations lecture series, and Biennale CineFest, a documentary arts cinema initiative. “Biennale is beyond the three-dimensional,” Mowatt said. “It’s about encompassing all the arts.” The Blue Trees, which have appeared in England, New Zealand and the United States, will also find a home in New Westminster as part of Vancouver Biennale. Australian artist Konstantin Dimopoulos created the environmental installation, The Blue Trees, which features trees coloured with a blue pigment that’s environmentally safe and washes away.

columns inside work.” Atherton agrees. “It’s lines on a drawing. When it becomes a reality, it’s very different. The renderings that we have had before really don’t do it justice,” he said. “The limestone wall actually comes into the building and goes

This rezoning would convert the current commercial uses into a mixed-use development including a residential tower and a podium of commercial, of'ce and par!ing uses.

As part of the assessment, these areas and the relevant expert opinions were also reviewed by SNC-Lavalin, acting as an independent third party. The assessment provides answers to the majority of the questions that have been raised and concludes that the product will not cause significant adverse environmental, socioeconomic or health effects.” With the environmental impact assessment now complete, Fraser Surrey Docks is providing a 30-day public comment period on the environmental impact assessment report. Comments on the report are due by Dec. 17. The report is available on the Port Metro Vancouver’s website. Search for Fraser Surrey Docks in the search box and follow the links to the report. The chief medical health officers of Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health have asked for an independent and comprehensive health impact assessment of plans to increase coal shipments through the Lower Mainland. “We were very skeptical from the time

this assessment was announced that it would be up to snuff,” said Laura Benson, director of Dogwood’s Beyond Coal campaign. “Unlike our chief medical officers, Port Metro Vancouver has once again refused to fulfill its duties to protect the public interest with this faulty assessment. Unless the port can go back to the drawing board and comply with the demands of our medical officers, study the full scope of impacts and conduct public hearings, it should deny the Fraser Surrey Docks permit application and stop any further coal expansion.” Fraser Surrey Docks has applied to Port Metro Vancouver for a permit to operate a coal transfer facility, where coal arriving on trains from the United States would be loaded on to barges and shipped to Texada Island and then to China. It’s proposed that the facility would handle between four million and eight million metric tonnes of coal annually. Anyone wishing to comment on the assessment can email FSD-EIA@port Written responses can be sent to Tim Blair, senior planner, Port Metro Vancouver, 100 The Pointe, 999 Canada Place, Vancouver, B.C., V6C 3T4.

Musical offerings span generations Classic meets contemporary in Patrick Street’s first two-play season

Classic musical theatre meets contemporary as New Westminster’s Patrick Street Productions offers up its first-ever two-production season in 2014. The company is producing two back-to-back musicals at Vancouver’s newly opened York Theatre – Rodgers & Hammerstein: Out of a Dream in February, followed by Floyd Collins in March. Out of a Dream was conceived by Peter Jorgensen, co-artistic producer of For video Patrick Street and Productions. photos, scan with It’s a nostallayar gic review journeying through the Broadway songbooks of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, and it’s onstage Feb. 5 to 16. It will star five accomplished musical theatre artists: Kazumi Evans, Kaylee Harwood, Warren Kimmel, Caitriona Murphy and New Westminster’s own Sayer Roberts. It will be followed by the Vancouver premiere of Floyd Collins, running March 11 to 30. The musical, based on the true story of an American explorer, was composed by Adam Guettel – Richard Rodgers’ grandson, and the composer of The Light in the Piazza, a hit for Patrick Street Productions in 2011. Daren A. Herbert stars in the title role, with Arctic Air’s Kevin McNulty and Republic of Doyle’s Krystin Pellerin as Floyd’s father and sister. “Patrick Street Productions

With Out of a Dream, we invite theatergoers to rediscover their favourite songs in a shining new light. With Floyd Collins, we offer a long-over-

due Vancouver premiere, introducing the city to an important and very beautiful piece of theatre.” Floyd Collins is being produced in partnership with Talk is Free Theatre. Katey Wright, fellow artistic producer, said the link between the composers of the two pieces is

very meaningful to them. “Rodgers and Hammerstein’s glorious fusion of song and storytelling gave rise to the golden age of musical theatre,” she said. “Adam Guettel, grounded in those classic R&H works, embodies in his work the continuing evolution of the musical theatre form. Peter and I hear the future of musical

Help to kickstart a cultural legacy for New West

A New Westminster theatre group is turning to crowd-source funding to create a cultural legacy for New Westminster. City Stage New West, a non-profit professional theatre organization, is aiming to raise $3,000 towards the $15,000 cost of producing a professional cast recording CD of Stump City Stories. It’s turned to Kickstarter – the online crowd-source fundraising platform for creative projects – for help.

Stump City Stories is an original Ovation Award-nominated musical written by George Ryan, based on the history of New Westminster. It was commissioned by City Stage in 2009 and originally performed to enthusiastic audiences at Douglas College. It was then brought to the stage for 1,500 New Westminster Secondary School students free of charge in 2010. The Kickstarter campaign is the third

leg of City Stage New West’s ongoing cultural legacy project: to produce a lasting record of the musical. Once completed, the CD will be donated to the City of New Westminster, the Fraser River Discovery Centre, the New Westminster Museum and Archives, the Anvil Centre, the New Westminster Public Library and the school district for future civic events and educational purposes. The musical’s 18 songs tell the history

of New Westminster and B.C., from the Qayqayt First Nations and the arrival of the British through to more recent times. To date, the theatre company has received a grant from the city, funding from the province and some private donations. “But we are still shy about half of our proposed budget, hence the Kickstarter campaign,” explained City Stage artistic ◗Stump City Page 12

Local composer earns recognition

A New Westminster composer was recently honoured with a Western Canadian Music Award. John Oliver won the Classical Composition of the Year honour for his orchestral composition Forging Utopia. In a press release, Oliver said he is “elated” by the win. “I would like to thank (then) composerin-residence Jon Siddall and the National Arts Centre Orchestra for commissioning the work and for such a wonderful premiere performance by the orchestra under the direction of American conductor David Allen Miller,” he said. Forging Utopia is from the CD of the same name, performed by the National Arts Centre Orchestra and released by

Centrediscs – the recording label of the Canadian Music Centre. A music centre press release notes that Oliver came to international attention during 1988/89, when he won six prizes for five compositions ranging from chamber to orchestra to electroacoustic music. He has gone on to create major works in those genres, as well as two operas. Forging Utopia is a collection of Oliver’s orchestra music from 1995 to 2006, featuring works inspired by Haida legend, paintings by Anselm Keefer and Johannes Deutsch, the poetry of Rumi, and Mark Kingwell’s book Dreams of Millennium.

Beer boasts some surprising health benefits A 2009 study from researchers at Tufts University determined older men and women who consumed one or two drinks daily had higher bone density. Beer contains silicon, which has been linked to bone health. Of the various types of beer, pale ale has been shown to have the highest concentration of silicon, so beer drinkers might want to enjoy a pale ale when having their next beer. Keep in mind, however, having more than two drinks has been linked to increased risk of bone fractures, so stick to one or two.

Lowers heart disease risk

Dark beers have roughly one gram of soluble fiber in each 12-ounce serving. Various research suggests that consuming adequate amounts of soluble fiber through a healthy diet can help lower LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol in the blood. Any source of alcohol, including beer or wine, increases the level of good cholesterol in the blood, too. Hops and the malt used in beer making also provide polyphenols, which are hearthealthy antioxidants.

Reduces risk for kidney stones

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, compounds in hops could help

slow the release of calcium from bones, which may prevent kidney stone formation. A study in Finland singled out beer among other alcoholic drinks, finding that each bottle of beer men drank daily lowered their risk of developing kidney stones by 40 percent. Researchers suggest beer’s high water content helps keep the kidneys working and flushing out the system.


Guards against stroke

According to researchers at Harvard School of Public Health, moderate amounts of alcohol, including beer, help prevent blood clots that block blood flow to the heart, neck and brain. These clots are contributors to isch-

Increases mental acuity

Beer may be associated with hazy thinking and forgetfulness the morning after consumption -- but that’s only when consumers overindulge. A 2005 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine that examined the effects of moderate alcohol consumption on cognitive function found older women who consumed about one drink per day lowered their risk of mental decline by as much as 20 percent when compared to nondrinkers. Such benefits may be applicable to men as well.

City set to light up for Christmas season Christmas sale at thrift store




t’s starting to look a lot like Christmas around the Royal City. Royal City Centre is inviting community members to drop by and enjoy a plaza lighting celebration on Thursday, Nov. 28 at 6 p.m. That’s when they’ll throw the switch and light up the plaza. Santa’s helpers will be handing out hot chocolate and glow sticks, and carollers will be making the rounds. Many of the shops in the mall will be handing out coupons, samples or flyers in the plaza or in the mall. The tree on top of Blenz Coffee at Sixth and Sixth will be illuminated at the same time that the new lighting in the plaza across the street is turned on, said Bart Slotman, vicepresident of the Uptown Property Group. Downtown will also be aglow during the holiday season, with a 40-foot tree taking centre stage in Hyack Square. The Downtown New Westminster Business Improvement Area is also installing lights along Columbia Street. “We are lighting up Columbia Street with $20,000 in lighting to light up all the trees down the street,” said Kendra Johnston, the group’s executive director. “We are very excited about the holiday season down here, and supporting our merchants.”

St. Barnabas Church’s thrift store may be the place to be to find new items to trim your Christmas tree. The thrift store is holding a Christmas sale on Saturday, Nov. 30 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the church hall at 1010 Fifth Ave. “It’s Christmas stuff people have donated – decorations of all kinds, kitchen stuff with Christmas things,” said Roxee Forrest, an associate warden at the church. “People are really good about donating. We save it up all year long and have this one gigantic sale to kick off the season.” After working up an appetite while shopping for Christmas items, shoppers will be able to buy hotdogs, hot chocolate, coffee and pop. Funds raised allow St. Barnabas Church to offer outreach programs such as an emergency food cupboard and a community lunch.

Vancouver Food Bank Society. “The afternoon trips are a great way of seeing the shores from another perspective and being able to give at the same time,” he wrote in an email to The Record. “Ordinarily a sailing of 90 minutes on the paddlewheeler would cost $40 plus taxes, so anyone who takes one of these trips will get a flavour of the Fraser while setting in motion waves of support

for the food bank.” Always dreamed of being captain of the ship? For a $25 donation, you can take a 60-second spin of the wheel with Captain Doug at your side. The moment will be recorded with a take-home photo. On the evening of Dec. 1, a special Christmas Cruise for Food sailing will feature a two-and-ahalf hour cruise, a wine and cheese tasting, and an overview of the Greater Vancouver Food Bank

Society from its communications director, Kay Thody. The evening sailing is being limited to 50 people (and one guest) who raise $150 or more through their business, club, union or other association.

Nurses turn memories into book

Remember when: Jim Bensley, Marie Bensley, Betty Archer, Helen Shore, Pauline Dunn, Elaine Olson and Myrna Bloch at the book launch for A Call To Nurse.


For five years Elaine Olson carried with her an idea – an idea she patiently waited until 2005 to share with her fellow Royal Columbian nursing school alumnae. It had been almost 30 years since Royal Columbian Hospital shut down its School of Nursing and Olson – a longtime Agassiz resident – was looking for a way to collect the memories of the students who attended the school. “We were anxious to preserve the history as none of us were getting any younger and we were losing some of our members,” said Betty Archer, one of the alumnae committee members who helped turn Olson’s idea into a reality. “It was really Elaine’s (Olson) idea. She carried the idea from 2001 and we didn’t act on it until 2007.” In 2007, two years after Olson presented her idea to the School of Nursing alumnae committee, Myrna Bloch, from Langley, Marie Bensley, from North Vancouver, and Pauline Dunn, from Surrey, joined Olson and Archer – the official book committee was born. For the next six years, the women met on a regular basis to discuss their research and the book’s progress. “As we got going, because none of us had written before, … it took us two years to gather all the classes’ (information),” Bensley said. But as they went about interviewing alumnae, what seemed like an enormous undertaking became an exciting journey down memory lane. “It was great fun. We got people talking to each other who hadn’t been in touch,” Bensley said. On Oct. 27, A Call to Nurse was released. The book features a different chapter for each decade the school was open and includes stories, pictures and tokens from the old nursing school. While the book was mainly created to catalogue the memories of alumnae, it also explores themes about life that transcends time. “Young people starting a new career, a new way of life, naturally have the same fears today as they did then,” said Bensley. A Call to Nurse tells the tale of 2,500 students who traveled from all over the Lower Mainland and Canada to study at Royal Columbian Hospital’s School of Nursing. Many of the stories are similar to the experiences of the women who wrote the book, which makes it even more special, said Pauline Dunn. “It was so interesting that many of the stories rung a

Live as if your days were numbered HEALTHWISE



ver my medical career, I have seen many colleagues leave practice. A few have left the country for new

opportunities. Many have narrowed their practice to their areas of special interest, such as maternity, hospitalist or cosmetic medicine. Many have retired, and some have died. Over a life of practice, a doctor may treat many thousands of patients, sharing the intimate details of their individual lives, spending many hours considering their

bell with everyone,” Dunn said. “I was (a student in the) late ‘60s and things were very similarly run in the hospital and in the school of nursing as they were in the ‘30s.” While the school hierarchy and organization remained the same for almost its entire existence, the amount of preparation the classes received increased year to year, remarked the women. “The medicine and the diagnostics became so much more complex. Nurses needed to know how to handle all of that and to be able to use intravenous and to do things that we didn’t have to do when we first started,” Dunn said. The emphasis was on learning by doing and many of the alumnae on the committee recall working in the hospital in their first few days of school. “You came in, got a uniform, and they sent you on the floor to wash the shelves and clean up. Gradually, you caught on what you were supposed to do and people showed you as you went along,” Dunn said. In the early years of nursing schools in Canada, the women who enrolled were part of an apprenticeship-style program that trained and educated them in exchange for labour. The students would work long hours in the hospital in order to gain the experience and expertise required to graduate and get a job. Olson and Bloch enrolled in the Royal Columbian Hospital School of Nursing in 1967 for the cost of $200, which included textbooks, uniforms, and room and board for all three years of the program. “You were totally looked after,” Olson said. But in exchange for the relatively inexpensive tuition, the students were expected to work hard. The committee said the school was very militaristic in the way it was run. Head nurses would scour the hospital, checking to make sure the students had arranged the rooms exactly right. Dust or ill-folded sheets were means for punishment back in the day, Bloch said. But as the prologue states, “besides learning to nurse, they established lifelong friendships.” The committee – who dedicated six years to this endeavour – couldn’t agree more.

circumstances and helping them achieve the best possible outcomes. At some point, every doctor wonders if they would be missed when they are gone. My more jaded colleagues have told me that the first thing a patient asks after their doctor dies is, “Who will look after me?” I hope that a few of my patients will remember the extra time that I gave them when they needed to talk, when what I said resonated with them or what I did had a lasting positive impact on their lives. I wonder how many patients realize that I have treated every one of them with the same care I would want for my own family. I recall colleagues whose contributions to our hospital, community and organizations were above

and beyond the clinical work of the average physician. They contributed many unpaid hours on volunteer committees and provided services unpaid by the Medical Services Plan. When these extraordinary colleagues left their positions, rarely were they thanked by the physicians who had benefited from their work. Others carried on as if nothing changed. Noses to the grindstone, physicians fail dismally at thanking and appreciating their colleagues. But we don’t do what we do in order to be rewarded or thanked. We answer our calling because it is what we must do. An artist must create, a musician play and an athlete achieve his personal best.

We do what we do because it is the perfect synthesis of our values, our talents, our passions and the needs of our patients. Some of us give more of ourselves to our community because we recognize that we are just a part of a greater whole that has a potential and a future beyond our individual and limited lives. If your days were numbered – you are at the end of your career or have a life-limiting condition, what would you do differently? How would you like to be remembered? By whom would you like to be remembered? Would you spend more time on the computer? Send even more texts? Work overtime? Complain about traffic, the weather or inflation? Spend more time on the couch watch-

ing reality TV? In our daily lives without the end in sight, we each have a running list of things to do, many of them mundane. If your days were numbered, would you toss out that old list and create a list of that which matters most? Would you say what needs to be said to those who matter most? The truth is our days are numbered. We each have a sexually transmitted terminal condition; it’s called life. None of us knows how much time we have left. So what is on your list?

and something we need from a health perspective, too,” she said. One of the keys to the survey’s success will be to get responses that are representative of the community, so the committee is hoping to hear from a crosssection of all ages, cultures and backgrounds. “Different populations are going to have different needs,” Tan Francoeur said. They’re distributing the survey to various populations - such as seniors, families with young children, new immigrants and

vulnerable populations – with help from service organizations in the city. But they’re also hoping to reach the general public and get as many responses as possible from all residents. Statistically, the goal is two percent of the population – or just over 1,100 people. The online version of the survey is available in English and Chinese. A paper version is also available in Punjabi. The survey takes an estimated 15 to 20 minutes. See to find out more and to take the survey.

Panthers take high road to B.C.s BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR

Timing was everything for the Moscrop Panthers girls’ volleyball team. The first-year senior West Burnaby school team defeated North Shore champion West Vancouver in a marathon five-set victory at Moscrop to qualify for its first-ever B.C. quad A provincial girls’ volleyball championships. Moscrop came from behind twice in the two hour and 15-minute match to force a tiebreak before pulling out a 15-11 win in the fifth set over a much taller West Van side in the semifinals of the Lower Mainland girls’ championship on Friday. The win gave the Panthers one of three Mainland berths into the provincials. A fourth and fifth berth will be decided on wild cards later in the North Shore this week. “We wanted to play our best and put it out on the floor. It’s a great feeling,” said Moscrop captain Lauren Hum. “(North Shore) is always great competition and we want to play the best, it’s exciting.” Moscrop dropped a close, opening first set 28-26, but came back to win the second set 25-20 on the

back of a seven-point service run by Elianna Guo midway in the match. The two teams traded the next two games, with the Panthers forcing a fifth and final set with a 25-15 win in the fourth. In the tiebreak, West Van went on a late rally to lead 8-7 at the changeover, but Ernestine Tiamzon got Moscrop back on track with a timely kill. Aided by a service ace For photos by Natalie Yu and a backcourt kill by junior Isabella and video, Cheung, Moscrop took a 13scan 9 lead. Tiamzon finished off with the comeback with a kill and Layar a final service winner to win 3-2 and advance to the Mainland final against Argyle. “We’re shorter, so we have to make up for it with other parts of our game like digging and not letting the ball hit the ground,” said Hum. “In the end, it’s just a game, but it was really exciting, like we could win this, this could really happen.” But in the final, Tiamzon left the game with an injury after a 29-27 loss in the opening set, and Moscrop never looked a threat after that, losing to Argyle in straight sets. Without the presence of their power hitter on the court, the confidence and purpose in the Panthers’

play appeared to vanish, despite the best efforts of Cheung to pick up the slack. Moscrop dropped the final two sets 25-12, 25-16 to finish as the No. 2 Mainland seed to the provincials. In wild-card qualifying, Burnaby North finished in fifth place, downing Magee 25-15, 25-22, 22-25, 25-20. North lost its setter Yasmeen Parhar early in the match but still managed to gut out a 3-1 win over the Vancouver school largely on a strong fourth-set contribution from Kaitlyn Tsang and Vivian Li. The quad A provincials will be held in Penticton Nov. 28 to 30.

BurWest ousted

Upsets turned the Lower Mainland boys’ volleyball championships on its ear last week. The provincial honourable mention Burnaby North Vikings were upset on opening day of the Lower Mainland AAA volleyball championships at Eric Hamber secondary last Wednesday. The district champions were eliminated following a pool tiebreaker with Richmond No. 2 McMath when both teams finished with a similar 1-2 record. McMath swept North in pool play 2-0. ◗Volley Page 23

Knights ousted by No. 1 Rams It was a tough end to an even rougher season for the St. Thomas More Knights. The No. 6-ranked Knights were knocked out of the B.C. high school AAA varsity football playoffs following a 56-24 loss to the defending two-time provincial champion Mt. Douglas Rams at Westhills Stadium on Friday. STM’s converted quarterback Malcolm Lee soldiered through with another strong game, throwing for 120 yards, including a 70-yard touchdown strike to J.J. DesLauriers, and rushing for 170 yards on the ground. The Knights defensive secondary also showed well with Drew Belgrave and Kevin Marshall leading the team with eight tackles

apiece. Jordan Mckenzie had six tackles and two quarterback sacks, while Anthony Carteri added five individual stops. But making up for the loss of all-purpose back Jalen Jana and quarterback Chase Malcolm for all or part of the season was a trial at times for the Knights. “When you look at the year as a whole, considering we didn’t have Jalen and Chase, it was a snakebitten year, but when you had that many guys out and still have a season like we did, it was a good year,” said Kully of the team’s 8-4 year. “There were a lot of life lessons learned from this year about what the future holds, and I’m proud of how we competed.”

“It was very interesting. The teams you expected to go through got knocked out. It was interesting to say the least. I don’t know what happened in the other pool,” said South coach Peggy Chow whose Rebel boys were defeated 3-0 by Thompson in the quarter-finals. “But I’m happy with how we did. That last set (against Thompson) was 28-26. Our kids couldn’t have played better,” added Chow.

Rebels got themselves into the championship round, finishing third in Pool A. South defeated Gladstone 2522, 29-27, but lost to provincial top-10 Steveston-London 2-0 and Vancouver No. 2 Eric Hamber 2-1 in pool play. Hamber was also upset in championship quarter-final play 3-0 by McMath in what turned out to be a strange zone qualifier.
