City cops will keep lid on pot operations BY CAYLEY DOBIE REPORTER cdobie@royalcityrecord.com

When it comes to Canada’s new medical marijuana regulations, it’s business as usual for New Westminster police. With only weeks remaining before new federal medical marijuana production regulations take effect, the New Westminster Police Department issued a statement on Friday reaffirming the department will continue to enforce the city’s bylaw against marijuana dispensaries. Under the new regulations, which take effect on April 1, only companies licensed by Health Canada will be permitted to produce and distribute medical marijuana. There are currently 10 licensed producers in Canada, while several more companies are waiting for approval. The new regulations move the production of medical marijuana from homes and backyards to full-scale industrial production facilities. In light of the upcoming change in regulations, the New Westminster Police Department issued a statement saying the department will continue to police dispensaries in the city. Medical marijuana dispensaries are illegal in New Westminster and are not issued a business licence, which allows police to shut them down for a variety of reasons, according to a media release. Not only can police shut down dispensaries for lack of a business ◗Marijuana Page 4

reat Britain may have the Windsors, but New Westminster has its own dynasty when it comes to May Day. Ten-year-old Cassidy Tecklenborg, who was named New Westminster’s 144th May Queen following a draw in council chambers on March 3, won’t have to go far to get tips about the longstanding city tradition, as her grandmother and her aunt were both May Queens. Her mom and another aunt were members of the May Queen suite. “We couldn’t believe it. She woke up this morning and said, ‘I am so lucky,’” Leslie Nichol said a day after her daughter was named 2014 May Queen. “We were in a state of disbelief that it could happen. We went in thinking the odds were against it.” Sue Sage, Cassidy’s grandma, was New Westminster’s May Queen in 1962, and her daughter Carrie Nichol carried on the family tradition in 1989. They were the last two May Queens to represent Richard

McBride Elementary School, with no other May Queens from that school between their reigns – and none since. “My mom and sister were the only mother/daughter in 1940 years, and now it’s mother, daughter, granddaughter,” Leslie said. Four generations of the family have taken part in May Day, whether it was serving in the May Queen suite or dancing at May Day. Cassidy’s great-grandmother, Annie Bennie (née Aston), danced in the 1932 May Day. “It started really with my mom. She was a Royal Dancer – they were flower girls back then because they didn’t have boys in it,” Sue said. “She loved New Westminster, and she loved May Day.” Annie, who took her children to May Day when they were too young to participate, passed down a love of the celebration to generations of her family. “May Day has become so important to our family. Doing the lancers (dance) was just amazing,” Sue said about traditional

dances done at the May Day banquet. “Even now, that’s the part they remember.” Sue has donated her May Day memorabilia, including her dress, crown and photographs, to Irving House. Given the number of positions in the May Queen suite, and the fact that F.W. Howay won the May Queen draw last year, the family thought it was unlikely Cassidy would be named this year’s May Queen. “It’s very exciting,” said Sue, who was at council chambers when her granddaughter was named as the city’s 2014 May Queen. “My daughter in 1989 – Cassidy’s aunt, and now Cassidy, my granddaughter, which is just unbelievable. I never thought two in the family, and certainly not three.” The family’s connections to May Day don’t end there, as Cassidy’s mom Leslie was third flower girl in the 1986 May Queen suite, and her aunt Stacey was second maid of honour in 1995. Cassidy is ecstatic about carrying on the ◗May Queen Page 5

Andthey’reaskingEnvironment Minister Mary Polak and Premier Christy Clark to hit the pause button and rethink the contentious recycling rules they say will kill

Nine major business associations representing tens of thousands of B.C. small businesses and their employees have formed a coalition and launched a campaign

to protest regulatory changes involving the recycling of printedpaper and packaging. The Rethink It, B.C.! campaign is launching a media and social media blitz with ads running in 130 newspapers across the province. The new regulations shift the responsibility for paying for recycling packaging and other paper products from consumers to the products’ producers. Multi-Materials B.C. (MMBC), an

Ontario-based industry group that includes grocery giant Loblaws, mega-retailer Wal-Mart and the Tim Hortons fast food empire, runs the new program, scheduled to launch May 19.

Sale could get district $2.35M BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

Finally there is some good news for the cash-strapped New Westminster school district. More than $2.35 million is slated to come into the district’s coffers after the board of education passed a bylaw this week enabling it to sell an empty property it owns in Queensborough to Platform Development Limited. Funds from the sale, which is expected to close on March 31, must go toward building a new administration office for the district.

According to Education Ministry rules, capital proceeds must be used for building projects, not operating costs, board of education chair Jonina Campbell explained. But the sale will still help the district’s bottom line. “It’s good news for our district, because what it means (is) we will be able to get ourselves out of a situation where we are paying for a lease at Columbia Square for an administrative space. It will free up that money to then be used for students in the district,” Campbell noted. The move would save the dis-

The district has been dealing with serious financial shortfalls in recent years and still owes the provincial government almost $5 million. The board has turned up every couch cushion, looking for ways to save money, including taking steps to reduce leasing costs. So far, it has moved both the Homelearners’ and an alternate program out of rental buildings for a saving of approximately $300,000 a year.

Marijuana: New Westminster police will take action against illegal dispensaries ◗ continued from page 1

licence, officers can also arrest individuals who work in the facilities for possession of marijuana for purposes of trafficking. Last May, New Westminster police executed a search warrant at a dispensary on 12th Street and arrested three Vancouver residents. While charges were

never laid against the individuals, police seized an undisclosed amount of cash and marijuana from the dispensary and the shop closed its doors shortly after the incident. According to police, officers won’t be actively looking for dispensaries that may crop up in the city, but the department will “take

action if the public is at risk by its operation or if information is received that marijuana is being dispensed without a legitimate prescription from a doctor,” the release explained. “The New Westminster Police Department takes complaints by the public very seriously,” said Chief Const. Dave Jones in the

release. “Many times, we are guided by our public, and although we are not actively seeking out the dispensaries, if members of the public report any issues, we will take action which will include criminal enforcement.” The Vancouver Police Department recently told media its officers wouldn’t be enforcing

the new Health Canada regulations when it comes to medical marijuana dispensaries so long as they are only selling to individuals who hold a permit to use medical marijuana. The Vancouver Police Department says it is aware of at least 29 illegal medical marijuana dispensaries in the city.

GRANDOPENING NOW OPEN

Thank you Newand Westminster for welcoming Attention Brits Other Fish and Chipus! Lovers FISH & CHIPS A Tradition The Returns Better Thangreat Ever! response has been They didn’t become the best in the business by throwing salt over their left shoulder! Salty’s Fish and Chips simply follows the British Tradition of providing top quality fish, lightly battered, along with fresh-cut chips. While New Westminster certainly does not have any shortage of restaurants serving fish and chip, it’s newest fish and chip shop just might have something to say about who has the BEST! Salty’s Fish and Chips, Unit 19 - 800 McBride Blvd.@ 8th, New Westminster (next to Safeway), puts its best fin forward in opening its newest location. If the name seems familiar, it certainly should. Salty’s Fish and Chips has been synonymous with excellent fish and chips since the mid 1970’s, when the family arrived from Leeds, Yorkshire in England, and opened its doors in Canada for the first time!

While the company has grown, with locations on the Island, Lower Mainland and the Interior, one thing has remained a constant – a choice of Atlantic Cod, Haddock, Alaskan Halibut in a light batter that literally melts in your mouth. Served with fresh cut chips in ample portions, and coleslaw at a reasonable price. “That’s all people are looking for,” says Richard, the son of the original Salty’s founder. “The best quality fish at the most reasonable price you can without jeopardizing your quality. At Salty’s we specialize in one thing - fish and chips. While we have a few other items on the menu like prawns, oysters, scallops and chicken strips for the kids, fish and chips are our business. If someone dines here for fish and chips and doesn’t enjoy it, we can’t get that customer back next week for pasta or a hamburger. We essentially serve one thing, so we have to make sure we are the BEST at what we do! The pride is obvious and well earned. Salty’s was voted the best fish and chips in town by newspapers and magazines in Victoria, Edmonton and Vancouver. Customers have nothing but praise for this British institution.

According to recent customers, John and Nancy Winston ”..the chips are beautiful, the fish is the best and the batter so crispy and tasty. Let me tell you darling, we love it here, everyone is so friendly and the service is great. We’re from England and back home Tuesdays and Fridays were chips days. We brought our friends here for a meal last Tuesday and now they’re raving about the place.” The interior has a flavour of its own, decorated with British paraphenalia – flags & pictures that make it seem like home to their many British customers. The menu at Salty’s is limited, as is that of any fish and chip shop you might find back in England, with cod, haddock & halibut available and Yorkshire’s gift to the world’s cuisine - mushy peas. So, if you have been waiting for truly authentic English fish and chips, stop by Salty’s Fish and Chips in New West or phone in your order: 604.544.6944. We’re open daily for lunch and dinner and Tuesdays are all you can eat night! Hope to see you there!

May Queen: New Westminster family celebrates a long tradition “I feel really lucky,” said Cassidy, who will be crowned May Queen on May 21. “It’s like my dream come true.” While Cassidy will be donning a crown, she won’t be the only family member taking part in New Westminster’s 144th May Day. Her cousins, and fellow F.W. Howay students, Anna and Tyler Rodrigues, will be dancing the folk and May Pole dances at May Day. But the family’s involvement in May Day doesn’t end with dancing and serving in the May Queen suite, with several family members carrying on long after their reign has ended.

family’s May Queen tradition. “I was happy, really surprised. It’s the best ever,” Cassidy said. “I am looking forward to everything. I am looking forward to saying my speech. I am looking forward to dancing with the lancers.” The women in Cassidy’s family aren’t the only ones involved in May Day, as her grandfather, Bud Sage, is one of the Royal Lancers. As part of the longstanding tradition, the men who are Royal Lancers dance with the members of the May Queen suite at the annual May Day dinner that caps off the day’s festivities.

In addition to being a royal dancer in the 1932 May Day, Annie Bennie also made the flower headbands for the May Queen suite for several years. Sue

Sage was the chaperone of the May Queen suite for several years and continues to teach the lancers dances to the girls. Leslie will be doing dou-

ble duty for this year’s May Day festivities. In addition to helping her daughter get ready for her big day, she’s also co-chaperone for the May Queen suite.

“We organize them when they are getting outfitted, we are contacts for the parents,” she said. “We do all the behind-the-scenes work.”

Her focus on the tangible has been far less successful. Quebec lost 26,000 jobs in February. The province’s unemployment rate now sits at 7.8. Those numbers are a stark contrast to her lead in the polls, which currently sits at 22 points. And more than any other provincial race, Quebec’s election could carry national consequences. After its failure nearly 20 years ago, Quebec separatism is once more in the

spotlight. While shifting demographics may not be in the favour of the Yes side in another referendum, it is a painful, bruising process for the country as a whole.

Are B.C. Liberals courting labour? IN THE HOUSE

A

KEITH BALDREY

n unusual gathering at Premier Christy Clark’s legislature office last week served as a reminder of some of the challenges facing the New Democratic Party as it continues to rebuild after last year’s devastating election defeat. A Who’s Who of B.C.’s organized labour movement met with Clark to see if there was any common ground on three issues: raising the minimum wage, reducing the reliance on foreign workers, and increasing the number of apprenticeships at work sites. Almost a dozen union leaders huddled with Clark in her office, which is about 100 metres from NDP leader Adrian Dix’s office. But when B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair appeared at Clark’s side in a joint news conference afterwards, the distance seemed much greater. This was another example of the labour movement – traditionally a strong supporter of the NDP – making a bet that it was better to do business with Clark and her government, rather than simply aligning itself with the Opposition New Democrats.

The first such episode of this evolving relationship between labour and the B.C. Liberals came last fall, when Sinclair and building trades head Tom Sigurdson shared a public platform with Clark, to announce they had formed a joint committee to develop a skilled workforce that will be needed to develop the LNG industry. Framed against these developments is the ongoing internal debate within the NDP that goes to the heart of the party’s increasingly tense relationship with at least parts of the labor movement. The NDP cannot decide where it stands on a critical issue: the creation of jobs in natural resource industries. And so it finds itself struggling to hold onto the support of those private sector union members whose livelihoods may depend on these jobs. This issue will likely dominate the party’s leadership race. The only declared candidate – MLA Mike Farnworth – has already been criticized by some of his caucus colleagues for daring to suggest the party take a neutral position on the proposed Kinder Morgan pipeline. Farnworth has also run afoul of the positions of two NDP-friendly mayors, as both Vancouver’s Gregor Robertson and Burnaby’s Derek Corrigan strongly oppose the Kinder Morgan project. Farnworth (and fellow MLA

tolling of the Pattullo Bridge as viable solutions to the increased traffic on Royal Avenue and nearby areas. However, Surrey does not agree and favours six lanes. Surrey Coun. Barbara Steele says a sixlane Pattullo will decrease congestion and increase the number of trips. Surrey Coun. Barinder Rasode also commented that the province should intervene and force a solution to replace the Pattullo if there are further delays or resistance to a new bridge from New West. What does Surrey wants from us? Just take whatever they throw at us and what they want? I do not think so. How would you feel if the province forced Surrey to agree to a four-lane Pattullo Bridge? We are not blocking, resisting or delaying any viable solutions. This is our home and we will do and fight however and whatever is necessary to maintain our livability and safety for everyone! The six-lane bridge will cost more. The Surrey-Coquitlam option might be one of the solutions to help the residents of those cities. Surrey’s population is increasing. More population = more cars = more traffic = more congestion. If the Pattullo Bridge won’t be tolled, where do you think drivers will go to

avoid the Port Mann Bridge (which is already happening now). It does not matter how many lanes because people will avoid paying the tolls. One of the New Westminster residents commented that all bridges should be tolled to “level things out,” which I agree. Those who are avoiding Port Mann have not factored the extra gas and time spent from avoiding the Port Mann. This was pointed out by one of the Burnaby residents, and I totally agree. For the person who commented that New Westminster is not a city and all they want is to through us to get where they want to go: Are you from outer space that you have this bad, selfish and disrespectful attitude towards the New Westminster residents?

The party is committed to a review of the practice, but the outright banning of fracking is a favorite position of many environmental groups, as well as NDP activists. Of course, if fracking was banned the existing natural gas industry (which ironically grew significantly because of policies of the NDP government in the 1990s) would collapse, thus robbing the provincial treasury of hundreds of millions of dollars.

There are other hotbutton issues that put some New Democrats in knots of course: mining, liquefied natural gas, port development, private power projects – the list is a long one. These industries not only create jobs, but wellpaying jobs – precisely the kind sought after by the labour movement. So when not one, not two, but almost a dozen top labour leaders meet with the head of the B.C. Liberals to talk about jobs, that’s not a good thing if you’re a New Democrat struggling to maintain the party’s traditional identity as a workers’ party. Now, to be clear, the B.C. Federation of Labour and its members are still supporters of the NDP and they’re not going to hold any fundraisers for Christy Clark anytime soon. But those NDP ties have become somewhat

strained, as labour leaders realize their members’ interests come well ahead of those of the environmental movement. Some New Democrats who realize that turning their backs on the natural resource sector is a recipe for electoral disaster have spoken out. Former NDP premier Dan Miller and former senior NDP aide Bill Tieleman have both written op-ed pieces or columns warning the party may be headed over a cliff. Don’t be surprised if we see more labour summits in the premier’s office. Clark’s political savvy tells her they not only make good sense from a public policy point of view, but they also serve to magnify the growing rift in the party that is her chief political opponent. Keith Baldrey is the chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Recycling: Business coalition says program changes will be costly ◗ continued from page 3

newspaper publishing, landscaping, printing and custom manufacturing, retail, wholesale, food and waste collection sectors. The coalition also includes the B.C. and Yukon Community Newspapers Association (BCYCNA). The Record and its partner newspapers in the Glacier Media chain are members of the BCYCNA. Canadian Newspaper Association chair Peter Kvarnstrom (also president of B.C. operations for Glacier Media Group) said handing B.C.’s recycling programs over to an organization run out of Toronto makes no sense.

“B.C. is the first jurisdiction in the world where the government has abdicated its responsibility and handed the whole recycling system over to a group of multi-nationalorganizations run from Bay Street,” said Kvarnstrom. “Decisions on B.C.’s recycling programs are being made in offices in Toronto, and local businesses have not been consulted.” Ken Plumb of Enterprise Paper in Coquitlam says the new recycling regime could boost a family’s grocery bill by up to 20 per cent. “If your grocery bill is $200, you’ll be paying $240,” said Plumb. “That’s a big increase, especially if you’re

a low-income person – and people don’t even know it’s about to happen.” Plumb’s company distributes packaging and other materials to bakeries, grocery stores and other firms in New Westminster, the Tri-Cities and the rest of B.C. He said the red tape already being generated by the new rules has forced him to hire two new employees just to fill out all the reports. And Klassen said the new regulations will force businesses to raise the price of everything from pop to pizza. “If you’re a pizza franchise and you’re in New Westminster, this will cost

you between $400 and $500 a week,” said Klassen. “That will have to be passed on to the consumer or the business will have to cut costs somewhere else.” Like most B.C. municipalities, New Westminster signed on to the MMBC program last year. But with the May 19 implementation date just weeks away, the city still has no idea where its recyclables will be going to for processing. “We don’t know who our processor is, and we won’t know until mid-April,” said Kristian Davis, solid waste and recycling branch supervisor for the City of New Westminster. “We still don’t know, and it’s getting kind

of close.” Davis said there’s a possibility that the recyclables will have to be shipped to the North Shore, which would increase fuel costs and might even mean hiring more drivers. Davis said New Westminster has one of the best recycling programs in B.C. and signing on with MMBC has presented a lot of challenges. “It’s not been an easy process, and I don’t think anyone is happy,” Davis said. “I’m not happy, but we’ll make the most of it.” Davis said the city does have an option to get out of the contract with MMBC if the new system proves

unworkable. “We have an out, and we will exercise our option to get out if it’s not working,” Davis said. Ministry of Environment spokesperson David Crebo said the intent behind the MMBC program shifts the cost of recycling from taxpayers to the companies who produce the packaging and other materials. It should provide incentives to industry to reduce packaging.

Well, lookie here. One minute you have a perfectly good Blue Box recycling program. The next, something new and rather questionable is being put in its place. And they thought they’d get away with it right under your nose, without telling you or asking your opinion. That’s definitely not democracy in action. The BC Government, elected by us to represent our best interests, has decided to offload the costs of recycling to big multi-national corporations. To implement this new plan, they’ve set up an association that doesn’t seem to hold the environment, local jobs, or the municipalities that run the Blue Box program, close to its heart.

Perhaps that’s why some of our elected officials are using the word “scam” to describe how the new program is being set up. It’s also perhaps why several of BC’s municipalities refuse to jump on board. That’s gotta tell you something. Now it’s your turn to let Premier Christy Clark know what you think. Contact her today to say that dismantling an already-working recycling program to replace it with something that few people think will be as good, is a bad idea.

What’s going on here?

Lively City: New art exhibitions, movie Monday on the agenda for March ◗ continued from page 1

Art at the library Drop in to the New Westminster Public Library to check out two new art exhibitions for March. On the ramp gallery, you can find watercolours by Esther Johnson. A library press release notes that Esther, who is legally blind, started painting at age 90 at the George Derby Artworks Studio. “At first painting from memory, her boats and flowers are joyful and colourful,” it says. “Her art is a way to express her creativity and help her access her memories and share them with others.” Upstairs, you can find Through the Lens in New West, the winning photographs from the WINS (Welcoming and Inclusive New Westminster) Photography Contest. The

contest invited photographers to show their visions of New West as a welcoming and inclusive place to live, play and work. You can check out both exhibits at any time during library hours. Drop in to 716 Sixth Ave., or call 604-527-4660 or see www. nwpl.ca for more information.

Movie Mondays

Film buffs, don’t forget to mark your calendars for the upcoming Last Mondays at the Movies screenings. The Arts Council of New Westminster’s film series is continuing at the Massey Theatre, with showings on the last Monday of the month. Coming up on March 31, it’s the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom, which shines the spotlight on the backup

singers behind some of the last century’s musical legends. (The March movie was previously announced as Philomena, but the schedule has since changed – keep an eye on the arts council website for the most current details.) On April 28, you can enjoy The Invisible Woman, which tells the story of Charles Dickens’ secret relationship with a budding actress who appeared in a play he adapted. It stars Felicity Jones as Nelly and Ralph Fiennes as Dickens. The Massey Theatre is at 735 Eighth Ave. All screenings are at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $9 at the door.

Knight girls win B.C. AA bronze BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Leilani Carney sparked a second-half comeback to help lead the St. Thomas More Knights to a thirdplace finish at the B.C. high school AA girls’ basketball championships. The Grade 11 guard had a 12-point third quarter, including a trio of threepointers, to lead all Knights in total scoring following an 83-67 victory over the Wellington Wildcats in the bronze-medal match at the Langley Events Centre on Saturday. “It was a close game. We had to get back into it and come back strong. We couldn’t have won without each other,” said Carney Carney led her teammates in overall scoring with 60 points over the four-day championship, including a 24-point outing in STM’s 65-57 win over Vernon in the quarter-finals. A point behind was junior point guard Zion Corrales-Nelson, who finished the consolation final with a game-high 24 points and eight steals. Corrales-Nelson was later named a championship second team all-star and winner of the defensive player of the tournament, an honour the talented Grade 10 athlete won last year with the runner-up junior Knights. Senior forward Domunique Booker earned a first team all-star nod for the Knights following a monster double-double in

All-star: St. Thomas More Knights Domunique Booker, in white, was named a first team all-star following the B.C. high school AA girls’ basketball championships in Langley last Saturday. the bronze-medal win. Booker scored 18 points and added as many rebounds in the final, while fellow senior Meghan Ho played through injury in the second half, scoring 13, while adding five rebounds and three blocked shots. “All the girls were really playing hard. We really came out playing off each other,” said Booker. “We play off emotion, but we

always go in there and battle, and that’s how we’ve had success.” Ho said the bronze medal felt “amazing.” “I wasn’t going to miss that game. We had to play with heart, tenacity and fight for the ball. I was really proud of how we played in the second half,” Ho said. Trailing by just two points in a tight first half,

Carney pulled STM even early in the third quarter with back-to-back threepointers. Carney then gave the Burnaby independent the lead with perfect three-forthree execution at the foul line after she was fouled attempting another trey. The Knights pulled away in the final frame, outscoring the Wildcats 27-15, including seven-

for-nine from the charity stripe. STM opened with a 7354 win over Lambrick Park behind a 20-point effort from Corrales-Nelson. The Knights were stopped in the semifinals 64-50 by eventual champion and No. 2 seed Windsor Dukes. STM graduates just two starters off its roster for next season.

There was no upset for Douglas College this time at the Canadian Colleges’ Athletic Association men’s volleyball championships. The Royals, 3-1 winners over Columbia Bible College in the provincial final, surrendered a possible bronze medal to the PacWest regular season champion in the consolation semifinal at the college nationals in Moose Jaw, Sask. last Saturday. Douglas took the opening set 25-21, before dropping the next three, including a 29-27 outcome in the final frame. Andrew McWilliam led the way for the Royals with 19 kills, seven digs and one blocked shot. CBC went on to lose the bronze medal to Ontario’s Humber College by a 3-1 score. The Royals opened the national tournament against host and eventual silver medalist Briercrest College, dropping the match in five sets. Douglas bounced back with a 3-0 sweep over St. Thomas University behind player of the game Matt Santema’s nine kills and seven digs. The No. 1-ranked Red Deer College Kings blanked Briercrest 3-0 in the championship final.

Clan women earn third seed to NCAA tourney BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Second-half points cost Simon Fraser University a Great Northwest conference title. SFU led by 10 points heading into the second half of the championship final, but lost momentum on the defensive glass before falling 78-74 to Western Washington in Lacey, Washington in a rematch of last season’s conference final. But the Clan women’s basketball team will get another crack at their cross-border rival when the two NCAA Division II foes meet again this Friday in the opening round of the national tournament in Pomona, California. “(Western Washington) is a team we know really well,” said Clan head coach Bruce Langford. “Maybe we had too big a lead

(in the conference final). When we got tentative, we couldn’t get untentative. I think it’s an excellant matchup.” The two teams meet again Friday. SFU advanced to the conference final following an 85-74 upset win over regular season champion and No. 1 seed Montana State Billings on Friday. “We came out with a lot of confidence. It just didn’t last long enough,” said Langford in a school press release. “We had four people contribute to the offence, but we could have used a little bit more in places. The game was really lost on the offensive boards. They had way too many offensive boards, which led to secondchance points.” Senior Marie-Line Petit, who scored eight of her 18 points in a

10-0 Clan start, finished the tournament with 54 total points. Erin Chambers led the Clan with 28 points. The SFU junior also registered a team-high 22 points in the win over Billings. Katie Lowen chipped in with 13 points, while Chelsea Reist finished with 11 points and five rebounds. Sophomore Meg Wilson led the team in rebounding with 11. In the semifinal, SFU got 30 points and 21 assists off the bench in the upset win over Montana State. SFU lost its two matchups with Billings during conference play this season. Lowen added 17 points, while Wilson had 13 points and eight boards. Reist and Petit both contributed a dozen points to the scoreline. Petit also had a team-best nine rebounds and six assists.

Jason Lang/THE RECORD

Playoff punch: Katie Lowen, in white, scored a total of 30 points in her last two games for SFU at the Great Northwest conference women’s basketball championships.

Glenbrook Middle places 10th at B.C.s

Wildcard Glenbrook Middle School finished up in 10th place at the Grade 8 girls’ provincial basketball tournament in Pitt Meadows last week. Glenbrook dropped its opening game to No. 2 seed Sullivan Heights but responded with two straight wins on the consolation side of the draw to play for ninth and 10th place. The New Westminster feeder school downed higher seeds Vernon 31-24 and Gordon Head from Victoria by a narrow 29-28 scoreline to advance. In the consolation final, Glenbrook gave every player a chance to play in the second half and eventually fell 42-23 to Argyle after trailing the North Shore school by just six points at halftime. Sarah Forgie was named a third team all-star following the tournament. Glenbrook finished the season with an excellent 27-4 record. File photo/THE RECORD
