Charges filed in city murders

In mourning:

Sheri Hickman, mother of Jill Lyons, left, and Herb Auerbach, father of Karen Nabors, spoke to the media Monday after police announced a 32-yearold man from Surrey had been charged with first-degree murder in their August 2013 deaths.

FamilymembersoftwoNewWestminster women killed in August listened quietly as police announced first-degree murder charges against a Surrey man at a press conference on Jan. 6. Sheri Hickman, mother of Jill Lyons, and Herb Auerbach, father of Karen Nabors, addressed the media following the announcement that a 32-year-old Surrey man is facing two counts of first-degree murder for allegedly killing Lyons and Nabors in August. Both Hickman and Auerbach expressed gratitude to police for their hard work and dedication to the investigation into the deaths of Lyons and Nabors – women they said were deeply loved and will be greatly missed. “The first time I saw her, I looked into her big brown eyes and I fell in love with her, and from then on we shared a close relationship,” Hickman said. Lyons was adopted when she was only four months old. She grew up on Salt Spring Island, riding horses, skating on frozen ponds and enjoying the outdoors, Hickman said. “She was an adorable baby and a sweet

little girl. She loved rainbows and puppies and princesses,” she said. Lyons was 45 years old when she was found dead in her 11th Street apartment on Aug. 12. Nearly two weeks later the body of Nabors, 48, was found in another unit of the 11th Street apartment building. Both women had a history of drug use and were employed as online escorts, but their chosen occupation doesn’t mean they deserved to die, Auerbach told reporters at the conference on Monday. “Whether hers was more or less risky than others, either in the fishery or forestry business, is not relevant. Murder is a crime

that is unacceptable in any job,” he said. Lyons and Nabors were friends, sisters, and daughters. They both leave behind large families, including two children each. “She (Nabors) could have been anyone’s kid,” Auerbach said. “She had a very strong sense of justice, and she stood up for anyone who needed her help. She didn’t brag about that because she didn’t think it was anything special, it was just the right thing to do … It’s hard for us to believe this boisterous and fiery person has been silenced.” Hickman told reporters she was surprised at how quickly investigators, which included officers from the Integrated

Homicide Investigation Team, New Westminster Police Department and Surrey RCMP, were able to announce charges in her daughter’s murder. At the time of Lyons’ and Nabors’ deaths, the public criticized the police for how they were handling the case, but it was a necessary part of the investigation, said New Westminster Chief Const. Dave Jones. “When these types of investigations occur, the police often find themselves in a very tough position. You have to constantly balance the integrity of the investigation with the public’s right to know what is ◗Murders Page 4

Billboard a success – it’s sparking debate BY CAYLEY DOBIE REPORTER cdobie@royalcityrecord.com

Not everyone has a problem with a controversial ad that made its debut in New Westminster earlier this week. As The Record previously reported, an ad promoting atheism and the Centre for Inquiry Canada, an educational charity

CINDY GERING 604.779.1292

aimed at promoting evidencebased thinking, is now on a billboard on McBride Boulevard between Sixth and Eighth avenues. The ad features a young man holding a camera with the words “Dave 27:1 … Lead with your heart. Not with your Bible.” “… These ads are specifically slanted in a way as to attack Christians and believers in the

Bible on the grounds that somehow belief in the Bible is some kind of assault to freedom of thought or self-determination, which is essentially bigotry,” Mark Jaskela, a member of a volunteer ministry in New Westminster, told The Record in a previous interview. But Centre for Inquiry Canada spokesperson Justin Trottier says

complaints like Jaskela’s are all part of the motivation behind these types of ads. “I have no issues at all with people’s strong opinions about the advertisements. Obviously the advertisements themselves are the result of our organization having itself, very strong opinions about religion, about humanism, about alternative sys-

tems to religion and wanting to have a conversation about it,” he said. “We welcome the very, sometimes loud and messy, but very necessary debate and conversation that ensues.” So far, the ads seem to be doing exactly what Trottier said was their intention. A number ◗Billboard Page 4

Chipping for charity New Westminster firefighters traded in their fire trucks for tree chippers to raise funds for causes around town. The New Westminster Firefighters’ Charitable Society held its annual treechipping event on Jan. 4 and 5 at the Canada Games Pool parking lot. “We brought in $6,700, which is pretty good,” said Josh Sharkey, the society’s treasurer. “It is pretty on target for what we usually get.” Sharkey said the weekend’s good weather helped draw crowds to the annual

fundraiser and enticed them to stick around longer and enjoy activities such as a barbecue, musical entertainment, fire extinguisher demonstrations and face painting. Offduty firefighters volunteered their time to run the event. “We got two bins full of mulched trees. It was 10 to 12 tonnes of tree mulch,” Sharkey said. “It goes to Harvest Power. It gets used either for a compost or they might use it for fuel.” The society raises funds, which it donates to a wide range of projects in the community.

Walkway goes, fire site to be cleared BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

Rubble remaining at the site of a devastating fire on Columbia Street will soon be hauled away. Demolition of the overhead pedestrian walkway that connects a portion of the Hamley Block to the Front Street parkade paves the way for cleanup of the site. “The site will be cleaned up,” said Bev Grieve, the city’s manager of development services. “That is what was needed to clean it up.” Once the walkway is removed, demolition can begin on the portion of the Hamley Block that survived the fire but wasn’t structurally sound. Site clearing that will get underway soon will include some special precautions, such as ensuring that none of the vehicles transporting waste from the fire site have any contaminants on them as they exit the site.

The debris from the heritage buildings contains asbestos. “It’s a complicated process, given the various elements that have to be taken into account, one of them being the removal of that walkway structure, which is attached to one of the buildings that needs to be demolished,” said Blair Fryer, the city’s manager of economic development and communications. “Then of course, there is the remediation challenges involving various government bodies such as Work Safe B.C. and B.C.

Charges sought in pedestrian’s death BY CAYLEY DOBIE REPORTER cdobie@royalcityrecord.com

Charges could soon be laid against the driver of the vehicle that struck Gemma Snowball nearly 10 months ago. Since the fatal collision, New Westminster police remained tight-lipped about the investigation –until now. About three or four weeks ago, the department submitted a report to Crown counsel recommending charges against

the driver of the vehicle that struck Snowball on March 11, 2013. The 25-year-old victim had recently moved to New Westminster from Perth, Australia and was working at the deli counter at Safeway in the Royal City Centre. She was leaving work around 10:30 p.m. when she was struck while crossing at Sixth Street and Sixth Avenue. At the time, New Westminster police spokesperson Sgt. Diana

McDaniel told The Record heavy rain and poor visibility due to artificial light could have played a role in the accident. Snowball was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital with major skull fractures, a broken pelvis and broken tibia. She died in hospital two days later. Co-workers at Safeway said Snowball was a funloving, cheerful and energetic young woman, and visited her at the hospital. “She knew everybody in the store. She talked

to everybody,” said Sue Lawson, deli manager at Safeway. “She was wonderful.” New Westminster police are now waiting to hear if charges they recommended are approved – when that will be, however, they can’t say. What charges were recommended won’t be released until Crown counsel makes its decision. The Ministry of Justice could not be reached for comment by press deadline.

H1N1 flu victims land in RCH on ventilators BY STEFANIA SECCIA REPORTER sseccia@royalcityrecord.com

The Fraser Health Authority is ringing the alarm over a startling wave of people with the H1N1 virus currently in the region. More than a dozen “ventilated” patients between the ages of 20 and 60 are currently in Fraser Health intensive care units across the region. No cases have been reported in Burnaby, but there are six patients with the severe virus at Royal Columbian Hospital. “They’re all recent,” Dr. Paul Van Buynder, Fraser Health’s chief medical health officer, told The Record. “It’s all been over the last week.” Van Buynder said he’s surprised to see the extent of the disease as the authority hasn’t seen this many at once since the last pandemic. “We did see an issue in Alberta a few weeks ago, with a similar pattern and five people died,” he said, adding that he expects all the current patients with the virus to recover fully. “It’s so many in such a short period of time. It’s so surprising particularly because it’s largely younger people.” Van Buynder said children are usually more susceptible to the virus, and elderly

people are more likely to get the H3N2 strain of the virus. This time, it’s mostly patients in their 30s, including pregnant women, and others who suffer from chronic illnesses.” In some cases, patients waited too long to go to the hospital because they didn’t feel the severe symptoms in the beginning. “While some of them are still severely ill … they are gradually improving, but it’s going to take some time for some of them,” he added. “One person will come off the ventilator soon.” The Fraser Health Authority is encouraging people to get the flu shot, if they haven’t already. “If you received the 2013 influenza vaccine, you are immunized against the H1N1 strain currently circulating in our community,” Van Buynder said. “We are urging those who have not already had their flu shot to get one. It is not too late.” According to Fraser Health, the influenza vaccine is safe and effective at preventing illness when used simultaneously with other infection control practices, including hand washing and staying home when sick.

and daughters. They were much loved and will be missed. They deserved no less mourning and their deaths deserved no less attention from the police than any other person who has lost their life at the hands of another. The New Westminster police were criticized at the time of the murders, as it appeared that less attention was being placed on the investigation, owing to the women’s occupation. The public and media are understandably still skeptical that women in the sex trade receive the same treatment in the judicial system as others. The Pickton case was

a dramatic and horrific example of that mindset. So, it’s no wonder – although perhaps unfair – that police come under special scrutiny when faced with victims who work as escorts. Thankfully, those criticisms appear misplaced in the Lyons’ and Nabors’ case. The police and investigators were dogged in tracking down surveillance tapes and, hopefully, have prepared a solid case for the crown. There are no happy endings in these situations, but there may be hope for justice.

very time a new year begins, I always wonder whether politicians will change their behaviour when it comes to some key issues over the next 12 months.

Jobs Plan is working? It is not, at least not right now. It may in the future, but despite more than $10 million in government advertising touting its success before the May election, the finance ministry’s own numbers from its most recent quarterly financial report tell the real story: there were about 2,600 fewer jobs in B.C. in 2013 than the year previous. Nevertheless, the B.C. Liberals show no signs of backing off their claim of success of job creation. I suppose if they

keep making that kind of claim, eventually they will be correct. But we’re not there yet. ◗ During the upcoming NDP leadership race, will the candidates continue to insist the positions of the environmental movement and the private sector natural resource industry can be accommodated in the same political platform? The positions are untenable, but I expect leadership candidates will try to have everything both ways, to avoid rocking the ship. It’s simply a way of saying: “Let’s not talk about this right now because everyone will get mad at each other.” But it’s an issue the NDP cannot avoid forever, no matter how hard the party tries to paper things over. ◗ Will the federal Opposition parties continue to equate pretty well anything the Harper government does with some kind of assault on democracy that will imperil our lives? It’s almost as if Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s political opponents have succumbed to some kind of syndrome that causes them to view all concerns with his government’s policies with the same horror, much of it exaggerated. I suspect this approach will only serve to work for the prime minister come election time. ◗ Will next spring’s provincial Throne Speech again mention that paying off the provincial debt remains a realistic goal in

not be offended. The Bible even warns us that “in the last days, Mockers will come.” The Bible also states that “in this world, we will have trouble but God has overcome the world.” It’s amazing to me that people continue to malign the truth of the Bible. I noticed that the billboard ad even spelled Bible with a small “b.” However, most people know the truth. God is real and Jesus is His Son, who died for the sins of the whole world. If we’re all so good without God, as the ad states, why did He send His Precious Son to die for us? The Resurrection is a well-documented historical fact. I was curious about the title Dave 27:1. At first I thought that the young man’s name was Dave, and he was 27, but the number 1 puzzled me. However, when I checked the computer, Psalm 27:1 appeared … The Lord is my light and my salvation – whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Just free advertising ◗ continued from page 6

of my life – of whom shall I be afraid? As I stated previously, free advertising, brother Mark. Give God all the glory. God bless you, my Christian brother. Caroline Moore, by email

Leave the debate open Dear Editor:

It is interesting that Mr. Jaskela concluded that the advertisement placed by the Centre for Inquiry Canada (CIC) was founded in hate as opposed to being a counterpoint on a debatable issue. In questioning the CIC’s right to place its advertisement, he is equally attacking the beliefs of those who deny the existence of any deity and call upon individuals to act with their hearts and minds, rather than be influenced by the writings found in a book. The fundamental problem with Mr. Jaskela’s position is the suggestion that the advertisement placed by the CIC is “lying,” thereby implying that there is an unassailable truth that is being attacked. Unfortunately, the belief in a deity, whether that deity is called God, Allah or something else, is ultimately a matter of personal faith and belief, not a matter of unchallengeable or objective truth. Similarly, while Mr. Jaskela may well believe in the Bible, his belief is at its base a matter of personal faith, not an objective and unassailable conclusion or truth. A book, whether that book is the Bible, the Quran, the Book of Mormon or some other “sacred” document written by man, even

if purported to be inspired by a deity, is just a book. As a counterpoint, however, the CIC’s position that there is no deity is equally a matter of personal faith; albeit a position that is perhaps more logically sound as it is founded on the absence of any empirical evidence of the existence of one or more deities. Mr. Jaskela suggests the statement of opinion in the CIC advertisement is a form of bigotry. Ironically, in saying this, he appears to fail to appreciate that his comments reflect an “assault to freedom of thought or self-determination” of those who believe as the CIC, to use Mr. Jaskela’s own words. Mr. Jaskela and those with a belief in a deity, together with those who deny the existence of a deity, should be equally entitled to advance their personal beliefs, without fear of being accused of hate or bigotry. It is only by dialogue and debate on such issues that one can actually refine one’s beliefs. To stop the exploration and discussion is to stop thinking. In the end, however, what one believes regarding the existence, or non-existence, of a deity (at least in this present world) is matter of a personal belief. As one currently in the agnostic camp, having neither the uncompromising faith of a believer nor that of an atheist, my interest is in thoughtful consideration of these issues. The CIC’s advertisement, far from being hateful or bigoted, provides a counterpoint that will encourage that consideration and raises the opportunity for further dialogue and debate.

Politics: Singing the same old songs ◗ continued from page 6

the near future? The government’s own books show the debt climbing to more than $66 billion in the coming year, and close to $70 billion the following year. If those much-touted liquefied natural gas plants are ever built – a big “if” – the revenues to government may be enough to entertain the thought of paying off the debt. But we are a long, long, long way from that. Of course, all these contradictory facts were pointed out during the recent election campaign, but it didn’t seem to matter with the voters. ◗ Will the B.C. government continue to insist it is “transparent and open” about things? Their track record suggests otherwise, as journalists and research-

ers continue to complain about difficult freedom of information requests (for example, many government documents are completely blanked out when they are released). When I hear a “transparent and open” claim coming from any government these days I tend to think “secretive and closed.” ◗ Will the B.C. NDP continue to try to raise money by sending out fundraising letters that suggest donating to that party will actually help change B.C. Liberal government policy, as the party has done over the issue of rising B.C. Hydro rates? If you think sending the NDP $50 or $100 will force the B.C. Liberals to lower B.C. Hydro rate hikes, I have some very valuable land in Florida to sell you.

◗ Will Premier Christy Clark shed her aversion to Victoria and allow the legislature to have a fall sitting in October? Clark has stated she thinks the legislature is a toxic place, akin to a “cancer” where nothing but bad things happen. Of course, not having the legislature in session allows her government to avoid scrutiny much of the year, which is unhealthy for democracy (no matter your own personal political views). ◗ Will politicians, from any party, insist from time to time that something “is not about politics?” Of course, this usually means that particular something is precisely about politics. When you hear him or her say this, run. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Mom’s death sparked player’s spiritual quest AROUND TOWN

THERESA MCMANUS

H

ugh Cruickshank started and ended his life in New Westminster – but travelled the world in between. Cruickshank was born in New Westminster in 1930 and passed away in his hometown on Nov. 24 at the age of 83. “He attended Duke of Connaught high school,” said Bruce MacDonald, who interviewed Cruickshank for his recently published book Salmonbellies Vs. The World. “He excelled at track and field, hockey and lacrosse.” Cruickshank wasn’t a large man, but he brought speed, agility, smarts and a good shot to the New Westminster Salmonbellies

in the 1950s. “He was a super talented lacrosse player,” MacDonald said. “Someone called him ‘whirlwind goal reaper’– he was so quick.” During interviews for Salmonbellies Vs. The World, Cruickshank told MacDonald the biggest thrill of his lacrosse career was playing before the future Queen, when thenPrincess Elizabeth visited Canada. Cruickshank’s life changed in 1956 when his mother died suddenly at the age of 56. “He stopped playing lacrosse,” MacDonald said. “He literally put down his lacrosse stick and picked up a bible.” The shock of Cruickshank’s mother precipitated a spiritual quest that would take him around the world. “He basically became a missionary,” MacDonald said. “He travelled the world for the rest of his life. He was a lay preacher and a missionary.”

Cruickshank returned to the Royal City about three years ago, moving into his niece’s home on Princess Street. “The street he grew up on was Princess Street – he literally returned to where he grew up,” MacDonald said. “He definitely made a point of coming back to New Westminster. It completed the circle.” Cruickshank was a member of First Church of Christ Scientist in New Westminster. “He was a very humble person,” said a member of the church. “Everything he had was given out in the community. He was always doing work in the community.” Everyone is welcome to attend a celebration of Cruickshank’s life that’s taking place on Saturday, Jan. 11 at 11 a.m. at First Church of Christ Scientist, 633 Eighth St.

City hall shuffles

A number of staff changes – both temporary and permanent

– are taking shape in the city’s parks, culture and recreation department. Ruby Campbell, the city’s volunteer coordinator, has been temporarily reassigned to some special projects, and her position has been filled for 12 to 18 months. “Another person who has been working for us in an auxiliary capacity was the successful candidate for the volunteer coordinator position. That was filled two or three weeks before Christmas,” said Dean Gibson, the city’s director of parks, culture and recreation. “Ruby is focusing some of her efforts on supporting planning for both the opening of Anvil Centre, as well as supporting some of the work for the Wait for Me, Daddy project.” Greg Magirescu, who had been working as the city’s manager of arts and cultural development, is no longer employed by the City of New Westminster. “We don’t have much that we

are able to talk about on that, other than we reached a point where Greg has concluded his employment and he has been free to look for some other opportunities,” Gibson said of Magirescu’s departure. “He’s actively off doing that right now.” The position will be filled but will have a slightly different (to be finalized) title. “A posting for that should be coming out within the next couple of weeks or so,” Gibson said. “It’s moving its way through human resources before it hits the newsstands for starting that recruitment process.” The job will include coordinating arts activities in the city. Magirescu, who started working with the city in April 2010, was in charge of projects such as the Vancouver Biennale public art initiative set to be launched in New Westminster this year. “Certainly Greg’s departure has left a bit of a hole in the

organization, so we have taken aspects of his job – just to keep the most immediate things moving ahead, and parceled those out amongst different managers within our department,” Gibson said. “Right now, Rob McCullough, who is our museum and archives manager, is taking on a significant portion of the arts and culture portfolio role as well.” Gibson said McCullough (who previously worked as the curator of the city’s archives) will be able to apply his “excellent set of people and management skills” in the arts and culture setting for the time being. Sloane Elphinstone, a recreation programmer with the city, has been working on the Biennale project from Day 1 and continues to help plan for the event that gets underway later this year.

Bremner thrilled

And speaking of the Vancouver Biennale, no one will be more thrilled than Hector Bremner when it comes to New Westminster. The New Westminster resident approached the

folks at the Vancouver Biennale a few years back about the possibility of getting the city involved in the “open air museum” event that includes public art, an education program, an artists residency program, a lecture series and more. Bremner was a member of the city’s community and social issues committee when he first broached the idea with the folks at Vancouver Biennale. “We were talking about the park,” he recalled about planning that was being done for Westminster Pier Park. “I was thinking about what was going to make that park sparkle at that time.” Bremner strongly believed New West needed some “world-class things” to draw attention to the city. Having followed the success of the Vancouver Biennale, he thought it would be a way to draw people into New Westminster and change how some people view the city – and show that it’s a city on the rise. “I thought it would work in New Westminster,” he said. “It is a long time coming.” Bremner made contact with the organizers of the

Vancouver Biennale and kept checking in periodically. Bremner, who ran for the B.C. Liberals in New Westminster in the 2013 provincial election, is looking forward to checking out the Biennale’s offerings. “It’s OK if they are a little controversial,” he said about public art. “It should inspire a conversation and get people talking and involved in their community.” In the past couple of years, the City of New Westminster has been working with Vancouver Biennale on the project that gets underway in 2014. Biennale Vancouver founder and president Barrie Mowatt told The Record that Bremner was pushing organizers to bring the open-air museum to New Westminster and was the “impetus” for its presence in the city. “I am glad it is finally coming together,” Bremner said. “I think the community will enjoy it and it will be well received.” Do you have an item for Around Town?

department head Colleen Ray said in a media release. “In addition, the donations have allowed us to explore more relevant, hands-on activities in the community where our students will live and hopefully work. The donations from Local 247 are not only making a difference for their learning today, but also for their success in the future.” The purpose of the Foundations program is to help students develop a comprehensive range of life skills that will enable them to function independently and to participate to the best of their ability as they transition from school to the community. “We are very pleased to be able to make this donation again this year,” Suzanne Hodge, union president, said in the release. “Our past (and late) president, Gib Whitlock, was very supportive of education programs in the community, and he would be very proud to see how we are investing in students who need this kind of support”.

A thrilling finale to GNW Showcase BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

A win cannot always be measured by numbers on a scoreboard. That is the way the Simon Fraser University hockey club must be feeling following an exciting one-goal loss to storied NCAA Division I program University of North Dakota before approximately 1,000 fans in the finale at the Great Northwest Showcase on Saturday. The Clan rebounded from an 8-1 loss to Princeton University on Friday to put a scare into 23rd-ranked University of North Dakota – a program with 15 NHL draft picks on its roster – before falling 4-3 to the Fighting Sioux on senior captain Dillon Simpson’s second goal of the game with less than five minutes left to play in the third period. “We were solid for 40 minutes yesterday, and then we kind of let it get away from us. But we switched it up today and stuck to it. I was really proud of the boys tonight,” said SFU player of the game Graeme Gordon. Gordon was a big key to SFU’s success, stopping 47 of 51 shots, including a penalty shot attempt late in the middle period by Rocco Grimaldi. After watching the University of B.C. upset North Dakota 3-2 in overtime on Friday, Gordon said he swore to be at his best when SFU met the Fighting Sioux. “I felt I had to be big against North Dakota,” Gordon said. “All day I was thinking about today.” Although lacking in overall team speed, SFU played the right system to keep the quick North Dakota attack to the outside, while allowing the

The stopper: Simon Fraser University goalie Graeme Gordon was the Clan’s player of the game following a 47save performance in a 4-3 loss to the University of North Dakota at the Great Northwest Showcase. Clan to keep the score close and take advantage of its chances when they came. After a scoreless first period, SFU newcomer Scott Brkich got his chance, tying the contest 1-1 with a shot from the point on a power play in reply to Grimaldi’s earlier extraman goal. SFU then took an early third-period lead on Taylor Piller’s shot on goal off a quick counter up the rightside boards with Nick Sandor creating a distraction in front of the net. North Dakota took the lead 3-2 on a pair of goals less than a minute apart when Stephane Pattyn snapped an unassisted goal on a three-on-two

break at 7:10. But SFU wasn’t done. Sandor cashed in with an easy tap-in from Jono Ceci to tie the contest with SFU on a five-on-three power play. “It’s awesome. It’s something that we could take on if we were at that level and playing these teams all the time,” said SFU head coach Mark Coletta. Plans are already in the works to get commitments from four more Div. I teams over the next two years to headline future showcases, said Coletta. “Our job is to do it again next year,” he said. “I hope the fans enjoyed it.” One program that

certainly did was the University of British Columbia, which swept its two games with the U.S. schools for a second straight year at the showcase. For UBC followed photos up its win over and a video, North Dakota scan with a 1-0 victory with over Princeton in Layar the early game on Saturday. New Westminster ’s Matt Hewitt shared both wins in goal for UBC. Last year, the Thunderbirds defeated club teams from Arizona State and Oklahoma universities. “It shows how good Canadian hockey is,” said UBC head coach Milan

Dragicevic. “It’s a big step for our program. We’ve never swept an NCAA series in the 12 years I’ve been here.” For former Western Hockey League Seattle Thunderbird forward Luke Lockhart, it was a fun way to get ready for the conference season at hand. “I think we proved a lot,” said Lockhart after the win over Princeton. “It was obviously a big accomplishment. We now want to take that, and we’re looking to finish our season and have a big push.” This Saturday, SFU takes on Thompson Rivers University at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre at 7 p.m.

RCCC rinks fall short at provincial juniors Royal City Curling Club’s Dezaray Hawes lost a tiebreak to fall short of a playoff berth at the B.C. junior women’s curling championships in Chilliwack Dec. 31. The Hawes rink, including third Ali Renwick, second Gabrielle Pionka and lead Casey Freeman, dropped a 9-3 tiebreak to Shawna Jensen of Victoria after both finished the round robin with identical 4-3 records. Hawes opened play at the B.C.’s with four wins in the team’s first five games, including a 6-

3 win over Jensen on Day 3 of the competition at the Chilliwack Curling Club. The New West rink also handed Corryn Brown of Kamloops her only loss in the preliminary round, doubling the eventual runner-up 8-4 with a steal in the sixth end and a deuce in the ninth. Brown and the combined Nanaimo/Delta rink skipped by Katia Van Osch both finished with similar 6-1 records. Van Osch nipped Brown in the final playoff 7-6 with a single in the 11th end.

New Westminster ’s Nick Parker, third Maxim Langlais, second Dylan Heimburger, lead Jordan Kiss and alternate fifth Jay Ueda finished the junior boys’ provincials with a 2-5 record. Parker held a hot hand in the opening game at the provincials, blanking Cody Tanaka of Langley 11-0 in five ends. The Royal City rink scored three in the second end, and then stole three in the third, two in the fourth and another three in the fifth for the one-sided win. Parker also had a strong game

against Langley’s Tyler Tardi, who was unbeaten in the round robin. Tardi needed a single in the 11th end before edging the New West rink 5-4 on Day 3 of the competition. Cameron de Jong, skipping the Victoria/Juan de Fuca rink, avenged his only loss of the provincials, defeating Tardi 10-5 in the playoff final, helped out by a twopoint steal in the seventh end. In round robin play, Tardi scored one in the ninth end and three in the 10th to defeat de Jong 11-7

New Westminster ’s Tyler Digby garnered six points, including a hat trick, in his National Lacrosse League debut. But despite Digby’s season-opening heroics, the Vancouver Stealth lost its pro lacrosse league opener 13-12 to the Colorado Mammoth on Saturday. The win for Colorado was its first of the season and only its second victory in the last 13 matchups with the Stealth franchise. Vancouver overcame a 3-1 first-quarter deficit sparked by former New Westminster Salmonbellie Alex Gajic’s first of the year in the opening two minutes of the second quarter. Another Salmonbellie, Cliff Smith, potted a pair later in the period, and Digby, Vancouver’s rookie righthander, scored his first career NLL goal to put the Stealth into the lead for the first time in the game at 4-3. Vancouver’s Rhys Duch, who led the Stealth with four goals, tallied his hattrick goal in the opening minute of the third stanza. But Colorado rallied with six counters in the period to retake the lead 10-9. The Mammoth held onto the advantage through the final quarter despite gametying goals by both Lewis Ratcliff and Cody Bremner in the first half of the fourth quarter. Adam Jones got the game-winner for Colorado with his third goal of the game at 10:47 of the fourth. Digby closed out the scoring for the Stealth with his hat-trick goal in a sixpoint debut. Gajic led all scorers with eight points, including seven assists. Former New Westminster Salmonbellies goalie Tyler Richards made 34 saves in the Vancouver net. The Stealth will be looking for its first win of the year, when they host the Minnesota Swarm in its Lower Mainland home opener at the Langley Events Centre on Saturday. Game time is 7 p.m.
