◗ STRIKE/LOCKOUT

Union prez on the line at NWSS BY NIKI HOPE REPORTER

nhope@royalcityrecord.com

British Columbia Teachers’ Federation president Jim Iker joined New Westminster Secondary School teachers on the picket line for the first day of “Stage 2” strike action on Monday. Iker turned up to take questions from media and to support local teachers, who were generally upbeat, waving when motorists drove by and honked in solidarity. “We here taking a stand for a fair deal for teachers, which includes better supports for our students,” Iker told The Record Monday. “We are hoping that our first day of our Stage 2 action will get government to come to the bargaining table this afternoon in good faith and bring the necessary funding that it will take to get that fair deal.” New Westminster and Vancouver were the first two districts in Metro Vancouver to participate in the rotating strike as teachers escalated job ◗Dispute Page 3

Parkade demolition to start in 2015 BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

A portion of the Front Street parkade could be coming down in less than a year. New Westminster city council has directed staff to proceed with actions needed to deconstruct a portion of the Front Street parkade and restore Front Street Frontage Road. “What we are proposing is demolition to start in January 2015,” said Mark Allison,

CINDY GERING 604.779.1292

the city’s manager of strategic initiatives and sustainability. “Of course, there are a couple of places for us to check in on the way. The first would be when we did our initial cost estimates. We are hoping to have them early in the summer. The second would be early in the fall, September or so, when the tender goes out. If council decides to go forward, based on the preliminary cost estimates, then the second phase would be in September. That’s when we would issue the tender, and hopefully

within a month or so we would have all the numbers, and we would check to see if everything is what we expected.” While council has been supportive of the concept of demolishing the parkade, it still has an opportunity to put the brakes on the concept if it has second thoughts. The city is hiring someone to do the cost estimates, prepare the tender documents that would be sent out to companies wanting to do the work, review the tenders to make sure they’re doing everything

that needs to be done, and to oversee and supervise the work to make sure it’s done properly. According to Allison, initial estimates suggested it would cost about $2 million to deconstruct the parkade and do a basic restoration of the Front Street frontage road. He said soil conditions in the area could affect the cost, which is why the first phase is to do a cost assessment.

Westminster Pier Park nets its ninth award

Creating a new hub for city culture BY CAYLEY DOBIE REPORTER cdobie@royalcityrecord.com

With the much-anticipated Anvil Centre nearly complete, its management team is reaching out to the arts community. A Who’s Who of the New West art scene along with several school teachers and artisans gathered at Centennial Lodge last Wednesday night to hear how the new Anvil Centre will fit into the city’s long-

standing arts and culture community. Moderated by Rob McCullough, manager of the New Westminster Museum and Archives, the crowd heard presentations from Anvil Centre manager Vali Marling, museum and archives curator Oana Capota, new media gallery curators and directors Sarah Joyce and Gordon Duggan, and arts coordinator Bilianna Velkova. “The key thing is, we are the

facilitators of what the community wants to do,” McCullough told the audience. “It’s about you.” For McCullough and his team, this means providing the arts community with spaces to create, exhibit and meet – the top three priorities that came out of similar forums earlier this year. In order to provide the community with exactly what it wants and needs, the Anvil Centre has been divided into different spaces

for conferences, performing arts, visual arts and special events. Velkova added that it’s management’s goal to ensure that everyone in the arts community has a chance to use the facility for their specific needs. “We’re excited to hear your thoughts and ideas,” she told the audience on Wednesday. For Velkova, it’s important the programs and exhibits offered at ◗Anvil Centre Page 8

action in response to fruitless contract negotiations with the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association – the bargaining agent for the province’s 60 school boards. One of the key issues for teachers that government has been unwilling to move on, according to Iker, is class size and composition. Also at issue, the government is offering a 7.3 per cent wage increase over six years, while teachers want 13.7 per cent over

four years. For New Westminster Secondary School teacher Jonathan Sykes, being able to negotiate class size and composition is the mostimportant aspect of contract deliberations. “The wage isn’t even an issue. I’d love to make more money, everybody would – (but) that’s not why I’m here,” Sykes said. “I didn’t become a teacher so I could make a ton of money. I think you’d be hard-pressed to find any teacher that would say they they’re on

the line today because they want to get paid better.” Explaining how composition impacts teaching, Sykes painted a picture of his music composition class. Currently, he has five students who are new to Canada and speak limited English, two with severe autism, one student who is blind, two students with behavioural designations and three with learning disabilities. “I’ve heard this saying, ‘They’ve lowered the bar, so people can kind of trip their way over it,’

… it’s kind of sad,” Sykes said. “We are going to see it down the road when we have a workforce of people who aren’t able to problem solve, who aren’t creative, who are only able to do the minimum.” The ongoing labour strife between the union and the government ramped up last week, when the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association ordered a lockout and pay cut for teachers who participate in the weeklong job action. For more on this story, go to www. royalcityrecord.com.

Resident asks city to protect historic park

BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER tmcmanus@royalcityrecord.com

A downtown resident is urging city hall to protect a park that has majestic views of the Mighty Fraser and played a role in the city’s past. Allison Taylor McBryde would like the city to dedicate Albert Crescent Park, located near the Pattullo Bridge, as official parkland and make some improvements to make it more userfriendly. With many highrises going up around the park, she fears it’s at risk of being viewed as private property instead of a public space. “Albert Crescent, I think, is beautiful because of the mature trees. Just the sheer majesty of some of the old growth that is there,” she said. “There is very little else in the downtown core to preserve a green park space area for people who just want to sit outside and have a picnic.” Taylor McBryde, a member of the New Westminster Downtown Residents’

feel very insecure about travelling through that in the evening.” According to the city’s website, the park was established in 1876 and is one of the oldest parks in British Columbia. The park was originally designed by Col. Richard Moody of the Royal Engineers in 1859 and was named after Prince Albert, who was Queen Victoria’s consort. The site’s storied history includes being the place where community members gathered for a royal salute (the firing of cannons) to the queen on her birthday and where the first royal visit to the city occurred in 1882. The site is also known as Prospect Park. Despite its proximity to the Pattullo Bridge and Columbia Street, Taylor McBryde feels it could easily be made safe by creating a berm and installing a fence along the south side of the site. While the sloping site is popular for children tobogganing in the winter, it’s a year-round hit for area

Association, said the park has exceptional views of the Fraser River and the mature trees offer respite for people walking or visiting the park. The group believes Albert Crescent should focus on natural landscaping, biodiversity, family picnics and places for community interaction. “There’s 900 children in the downtown core, according to one statistic. There are a lot of preschoolers,” said Taylor McBryde. “There’s no place for them to experience nature, there’s no place for them just to go out for a little walk or a little picnic.” Although the park’s pathways are in disrepair, Taylor McBryde believes Albert Crescent has “untapped” potential and should be revitalized with natural plantings and improved pathways. “I think it really wouldn’t take a whole lot,” she said. “Right now there is a fair amount of suspect activity in the park because there is no lighting at night. I know a lot of neighbours

Their dogs are having playtime.” Council referred the issue to the city’s parks and recreation committee to look at the park’s designation and to consider improvement opportunities.

Will the squabbling never end? IN THE HOUSE

KEITH BALDREY

he B.C. Liberal government has largely shed the labour relations headaches it helped create when it first took power in 2001, with one glaring exception. That would be its tumultuous, antagonistic and befuddling relationship with the union that represents B.C.’s public school teachers. Watching the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the government engage in a seemingly neverending struggle to determine who wields the power in schools and classrooms is akin to viewing a soap opera in which you’re never really sure which character is in charge. In recent years, the government has established an impressive record in negotiating collective agreements with a host of public sector unions, with rarely a peep of unrest and without draining the public treasury as well. Not so its dealings with the BCTF, which have been characterized by strife, suspicion and almost a complete lack of success. The fractious relationship is played out in public, with dueling news conferences or protest rallies, and it’s getting rather

tiresome. Yet here we go again. The government and the union are on yet another collision course, which will almost certainly end in a way that pleases neither party. The gap between the two sides on so many issues is so vast, it will take a miracle to close it – and it would involve shifting hundreds of millions of dollars from one side to another. As I write this, the union is looking for a salary increase of almost 16 per cent (compounded) over four years, while the government is offering over seven per cent over six years. Given that a one per cent pay hike is the equivalent to about $25 million, that’s a gap of about $75 million a year, and that doesn’t include an improved benefit package and other improvements the BCTF is looking for. On the important issues of class size and class composition, the union is seeking a return to contract language and staffing levels that were in place in 2002. That would cost about $300 million a year over what is currently spent, while the government is offering to top up its Learning Improvement Fund by $75 million this year. The gap: about $225 million. Add it up and the difference between the two sides’ position is a whopping $300 million, and as I noted, this does not include a raft of other expensive items.

Dear Editor:

If New Westminster city council is seriously concerned about low voter turnout in our local elections, the council should do much more than just updating city hall website (The Record, May 16, New Westminster seeks to encourage voter turnout). Here are five good suggestions I have for council. To start with, the council must decide to promote the elections in places where the message will be easily seen. They can (1) place a banner over city hall and (2) install billboards on prominent city intersections. The message shall be clear, concise and non-partisan. Our city regularly sends letters – including electric bills – to every residence in the city, which is an ◗Teachers Page 7 opportunity to promote elections by (3) placing a

note on the envelopes used in September, October and November mailing, leading to the fall elections. Over past two years, I approached the council several times asking them to help increase voter turnout by (4) setting special places on public property where candidates will be allowed to place posters during election campaign. After my first presentation, the benefits of this approach have been described in this newspaper (The Record, Feb. 24, 2012, Resident calls for change to sign bylaws). Unfortunately, the council keeps ignoring this proposal, which would increase elections visibility in the city. I also hope New Westminster will follow the example from Coquitlam and support public engagement in election process by (5) allowing organizers of all-candidate meetings to promote these meetings

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR City can encourage voting ◗ continued from page 6

on signs placed on public property in the vicinity of the meeting location. Last December, I had a meeting with New Westminster’s acting chief legislative officer (better known as the city clerk) who has been working on modernizing city’s voting system, and her report to council is due anytime now. Key points of this report will be a proposal to (a) increase the number of advanced polling stations and (b) implement electronic tracking system during voting. Currently, the city has one advanced polling station located at city hall. If the council approves the city clerk’s proposal, the city will have at least four advanced polling stations, located throughout the city, probably at New Westminster City Hall, Queensborough Community Centre, Century House and Centennial Community Centre. The reason for implementing electronic tracking system is to meet the provincial government’s requirements for local electoral systems. These requirements, introduced last summer, call for use of one of the specified methods for voter verification. But the present New Westminster system does not follow any of such meth-

ods, and therefore does not sufficiently safeguard against unauthorized voting. By the way, the City of Burnaby updated their electoral system two years ago on their own initiative. As many New Westminster residents, I am a big admirer and supporter of the city’s rich history, traditions, culture, architecture. But an outdated, unsuitable electoral system is not a part of New Westminster heritage I would like to keep.

But deeply embedded in this dispute (well, actually, the never ending dispute) is something that appears to cripple any chance of a successful, negotiated outcome: a mistrust and a lack of respect of each other. The government poisoned the well when it arbitrarily stripped language governing class sizes from the collective agreement back in 2002 and things have never really got back on track ever since. The union has won two court challenges on this one issue, and the government won’t give up the fight and is appealing the ruling to a higher court (and depending on who wins there, the loser will no doubt try to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada). The BCTF doesn’t exactly have clean hands in this little ongoing drama

Yes, please to urban beach Dear Editor:

We being loyal citizens of New West look forward to an urban beach. We reside at the west end of the boardwalk. We frequently ride our bikes to the Quay for shopping and lunch. We are also boaters on a jet ski. New West has no dock access for pleasure craft. The only dock is locked for tugs and police boats. If you are going to make an urban beach, then you should also think about another pleasure craft entrance. It would only bring in more revenue for our city, benefitting us all

either. I find teachers, for the most part, to be a passionate, committed bunch (many dip into their own pockets to pay for their students’ needs, including food) but their union is another story. It is an ideologically hidebound organization that doesn’t really fit into a labour relations model, which makes its efforts at collective bargaining feeble and ineffective at times. Unlike other public sector unions, it refuses to take into account the government’s fiscal position or ability to pay and exhibits an often maddening sense of entitlement, as if the interests of its membership trumps everything else public tax dollars fund. But it has also proven to be a resilient foe of the B.C. Liberal government and has tripped it up on more than one occasion. It may not win at the negotiating table very

often, but it has posted big victories in court and at the Labour Relations Board. When both sides won’t trust or respect each other, they make mistakes and misread each other’s moves. That’s been happening in the current breakdown, even though bargaining continues (without much progress being made, it seems). This current contract impasse may be headed for a legislated resolution, or perhaps if the two sides can get at least a little closer to each other’s position some kind of meaningful mediation can take place. In any event, until a mutual trust and respect finds its way into the picture, we’re going to see a replay of the current melodrama as soon as the next contract expires.

For example, staff are preparing an exhibit that celebrates the Wait For Me Daddy sculpture, scheduled for unveiling in October, right across the street from the new centre. In addition to these types of connected exhibits, the community will also play a role in what art is displayed throughout Anvil Centre. According to Velkova, the artwork displayed in the community art spaces (located in the hallway outside the theatre) will be chosen by a peer jury. Positions on the jury will be rotated to ensure everyone can have a chance to participate in the selection process. While the official opening isn’t for another four months, staff at the museum and archives are already preparing for the move from Irving House. “Our next steps are to

Located on the third floor, the museum will feature several different exhibits (some local, others travelling exhibits), a chronological timeline of New West’s history, children’s areas (including tunnels for the little ones), and touchable displays. “When they come with families, they want an immersive experience,” Capota told The Record. “I want to animate the space by getting a lot of … touchable artifacts that enhance what’s on display.” Capota’s team is already working on several new displays for the opening of the new museum and archives in the fall, including the history of the May Queens, complete with photos of nearly all 144 May Queens. In addition to the designated museum and archives

space, there will be several display cases throughout the Anvil Centre as well as rooms for multimedia displays, including an oral history room with windows all around where visitors can sit down and listen to oral stories played on iPads. “You open a door and suddenly you’re just looking outside, and it will be nice to sit down and put on headphones and actually get to listen to an oral history,” she said.

Golden age fun

G

etting older can be entertaining – just ask the members of Golden Age Theatre. The drama club based at Century House seniors’ centre is staging Summer Capers, running June 6 and 7. A press release let me know that the night of theatre includes four one-act plays. Getting Old is Hell involves three older men – one who is hard of hearing, one who has a memory problem and the other who is “near normal” for his age – reminiscing about their youthful capers. Gypsy Tearoom involves two older women who visit a tearoom to have their fortunes told. Coconut Cream Pie is a oneman, one-woman play telling the story of a widower who reluctantly works for his nitwit son-in-law – and winds up meeting a widow on the job. Forget Me Not tells the story of a clumsy husband doing home repairs while his wife has a pious church woman visiting. The four entertaining plays will take to the stage on Friday, June 6 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, June 7 at 1:30 p.m., with refreshments served at intermission. Golden Age Theatre has been presenting plays at Century House for more than a decade, with artistic direction by Margo Prentice. Its mission is “to bring together seniors (age 50-plus) who share a passion for the performing art of live theatre.” The night is sure to be ◗Lively City Page 12

Rock ’n’ roll with Maple Leaf Singers

A sing down memory lane: The Maple Leaf Singers are offering up Rock, Roll and Remember on May 31 and June 1.

Do your remember your first heartthrob? Your first date? Your first dance? The Maple Leaf Singers will help you walk down memory lane at their concert this weekend at Massey Theatre. The Burnaby-based choir, which is in its 46th year of performing, will offer up chart toppers from the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s in its Rock, Roll and Remember concert. Think songs like Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror, Manhattan Transfer’s The Boy From New York City, Stompin’ Tom Connors’ The Hockey Song and Queen’s We Will Rock You – plus Broadway classics, spirituals, classical twists and inspirational pieces. “We don’t put on a concert, we put on a show,” says musical director Wilson Fowlie in a press release. “We may be a community chorus, but our audiences get a professional package: talented singers, energetic choreography and colourful costumes, along with a big dose of fun.” The Maple Leaf Singers are a registered charity that performs more than a dozen shows a year at community centres, churches seniors’ residences and various special events. Rock, Roll and Remember is on Saturday, May 31 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 1 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20, or $10 for children 12 and under. Call the Massey ticket centre at 604-521-5050 or buy through tickets.massey theatre.com. Check out more about the choir at www. mapleleafsingers.com.

New West artist holds weekend exhibition

A New Westminster artist is holding an exhibition in Vancouver this weekend. David Haughton’s work is featured at Visual Space Gallery in an exhibition titled Nocturnes: Paintings of the Pacific Northwest. The exhibition is on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 30 to June 1, from noon to 5 p.m. daily. Nocturnes is a new series of acrylic paintings that capture scenes from the B.C. coastline in the evening, at sunset and at

night. Most of the paintings include views from the Vancouver area – from locations like Jericho Beach, Spanish Banks, English Bay and Second Beach. “The luminous paintings feature ships in the harbour as seen from the shore, with fantastic mountain backdrops and dramatic skies,” a press release says. “The views are often framed by hanging trees or loading cranes in the port.” Several of the titles include the word

Westcoast Seniors

Seniors need to plan for end-of-life care T

heir kids might not want to hear it, their doctors might not have brought it up, but a group of New Westminster seniors is ready to start talking about what kind of medical care they want (and don’t want) if they ever get too sick to decide for themselves. “My doctor has never discussed this with me. Maybe she’s not prepared to, but I will go and talk to her,” Patricia Redman told The Record. “If they’re not ready to discuss it,” Dianne Clark said of her two daughters,“I need to write stuff down.” Redman and Clark were part of an innovative new workshop on advance-care planning this month. Sponsored by the Fraser Northwest Division of Family Practice to mark national Advance Care Planning Day on April 16, it brought together both seniors and family doctors to learn about planning ahead for their future care in case a severe illness ever renders them unable to make decisions for themselves. It’s rare to see doctors and laypeople learning together, said co-facilitator Dr. Charlie Chen, a hospice and palliative care consultant for Royal Columbian Hospital and the New West community. The content they need to know on most health-related topics is usually quite different, he said. Not so with advance-care planning. “It’s an activity that everybody should know how to do, even doctors for themselves,” Chen said.“We also believe that if doctors engage in the creation of their own

advance-care planning, they’re going to be more able to facilitate advance-care planning for their patients.” When patients don’t have a plan, the result is usually a lot of stress on relatives and doctors. It’s a scenario Dr. Marianne Russell, who was at this month’s workshop, has dealt with many times. A family doctor, who has worked as medical co-ordinator for a seniors’ residential care facility, she has seen how

Proudly Serving the

Burnaby Community

stressful it is for families to try to make decisions for loved ones who haven’t made plans for themselves. “You’ll have family members that may have no idea what their relative wanted, and that’s a problem for the family member,” Russell said.“They feel an immense responsibility and sometimes guilt.” When there is no family, that responsibility and guilt falls on doctors. see pg. 16 …

to understand about what they want.” There is also a financial argument to be made for advance-care planning. With clear instructions from patients not to pursue treatments like life support and feeding tubes if there is no chance of meaningful recovery, the health-care system stands to save money on patients who plan ahead. But financial considerations are secondary to Chen. “We can’t go into it thinking about the finances first,” he said.“I’m not an administrator, and I do recognize that there are fiscal constraints in our system, but that’s not my priority. My priority is to make sure that every patient receives the best care based see pg. 17 …

Quality of life questions at play … from pg. 16 on their values and goals.” Having begun his own advance-care planning at age 38, the 44-year-old doctor said the process also pays off in terms of greater self-understanding long before health-care issues come into play. “The first step of advancecare planning is reflection and understanding my own values and goals and priorities,” he said.“To engage in that process means that I get to learn about myself more deeply. And that’s the gift.” Seniors at this month’s workshop found the same thing. Clark said it’s a process of figuring out what her beliefs are and figuring out what physical or mental ailment would make it impossible for her to want to live life. “If I lose a faculty, can I compensate and still have

a good quality of life, and which faculties would I be willing to lose?” she said. “It’s really hard to figure out.” Having a chance to discuss such issues, especially among fellow seniors and doctors, was helpful, she said. So far Chen has received “overwhelmingly positive” feedback from both doctors and seniors about the workshop, which will serve as part of his work on a master’s of education degree at Simon Fraser University. Making the workshops a regular thing or adding a Level 2 workshop, however, will require more funding. “If we’re able to prove to the purse-string holders that there is cost effectiveness and good bang for their buck, this might be repeated,” Chen said. – Cornelia Naylor

Shaping patients’ stories PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE HEALTHWISE

DR. DAVIDICUS WONG

I

chose family medicine because I love stories – not fairy tales, fantasy and fiction, but the narratives of everyday people living their lives. Nothing is more engaging or authentic. Physicians are privileged to listen to the personal stories of our patients, and we are entrusted to become a part of these stories as we, understanding each person’s personal values, guide them in making the most appropriate choices for themselves. At a recent strategic planning session for the Burnaby Division of Family Practice, I invited all board members to share their stories. Why did they choose medicine as a career? Why did they choose family medicine as a specialty? Why did they choose to practise in Burnaby, and why did they join the Burnaby Division of Family Practice?

Medicine chose me when in Grade 6, I was admitted to Burnaby Hospital for inflammatory arthritis and was moved by the nurses and doctors who cared for me as a person and not just the disease. I wanted to help others to cope with challenging and uncertain circumstances and see and treat them as whole people. I chose Burnaby because this was my hometown. I went to Parkcrest Elementary and Burnaby North, played in most of the parks, learned to swim in the Kensington outdoor pool and spent countless hours in the Burnaby Public Library. To work in Burnaby was to give back to the community that has given me so much more. I chose to lead the Burnaby Division of Family Practice because this non-profit organization’s purpose resonated with my personal calling. The Burnaby Division’s mission is to engage, support and mobilize family physicians in co-creating a network that will support the well-being of all members of the Burnaby community. At the heart of our mis-

sion – at the core of all that we do – is the well-being of every patient. Our organization and the GP for Me initiative ask all family physicians to expand their circle of care. As a group, we are engaged in the care of everyone in our community, especially those who do not yet have a family physician and are not receiving the care they need. Our organization is involved in multiple initiatives that will ultimately enhance access to primary care, the health of our community and the patient-doctor relationship. On Monday, June 2, I’ll be speaking at the Metrotown branch of the Burnaby Public Library on The Patient-Doctor Relationship: making the most of each visit with your family doctor. For more information, call the library at 604-4365400 or register online at www.bpl.bc.ca/events. Dr. Davidicus Wong is physician lead of the Burnaby Division of Family Practice. His Healthwise column appears regularly in this paper. You can read more about achieving your positive potential in health at davidicuswong. wordpress.com.

Please join us at the second Open House for 1000 Quayside Avenue. Bosa Properties has submitted an application to the City of New Westminster to rezone 1000 Quayside Avenue. This rezoning would convert the current parking lot into a mixed-use development including two residential towers and a podium of commercial and parking. Since our initial Open House on March 4, 2014, the proposal has been updated to reflect feedback from the City and the community. We will be holding a second Open House on June 4 to provide information about the updated proposal and to receive further feedback. Please note that there will not be a formal presentation at this event. Please drop in between 5:00-7:30 PM to review our display boards, talk to the project team, and provide your feedback.

Joining the B.C. heptathlon elite BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

Nina Schultz joined a celebrated list of remarkable Burnaby/New Westminster multievents athletes. The New Westminster Secondary School junior became the fifth district female athlete since 1980 to win the B.C. high school heptathlon title in Abbotsford last weekend. Schultz defeated three of last year’s runners-up in her provincial multi-events debut, recording two wins and three other top-three finishes in the two-day, seven-event competition. The Grade 10 ath“For my first hep- lete opened with a win in the 100-metre tathlon, it was hurdles – the first of pretty good. I was three personal bests the competition really happy with in – in a quick time of my hurdles. In 14.92, which would my high jump, … have been a goldmedal time in the I was pretty dis- individual race at the provincials last seaappointed with son. 1.59m.” She also won the long jump to start NINA SCHULTZ Day 2 of the compeHeptathlon champion tition with a tremendous leap of 5.72m – another possible first-place jump and best individual effort in the field event since Sabrina Nettey’s six-metre winning leap in 2008. What was even more incredible was Schultz’s PB jump was half a metre farther than her previous best. On the opening day, Schultz finished runner-up in the high jump at 1.59m, while placing third in both the shot put, at 9.51m, and the 200m, in a time of 26.55. Schultz finished in mid-pack in the javelin and 800m on the final day of the multi-events but still managed to hold off last year’s runnerup, Robyn Buckingham of Walnut Grove, by nearly 150 points. She also defeated Hannah Beaton of Langley Fundamental and Monique Lisek of Maple Ridge – last year’s third- and fourth-place finishers, respectively. Stephanie Cho of Winston Churchill placed third in this year’s multi-event final with 4,342 total points. “For my first heptathlon, it was pretty good. I was really happy with my hurdles. In my high jump, I went out at 1.62m. I was pretty disappointed with 1.59m,” said Schultz, who has a career-best 1.75m in the high jump. Schultz’s winning score of 4,655 points was far off four-time heptathlon champion Georgia Ellenwood’s B.C. record 5,296 numbers from last year. But when put into perspective, Schultz’s aggregate total is among the best of any past multi-event’s winner. Ellenwood won her first of four titles as a

A big jump: New Westminster’s Nina Schultz uncorks a winning 5.72-metre long jump at the B.C. high school combined events championships in Abbotsford last week. Grade 9 with a 4,661 total. G.P. Vanier’s three-time winner from 2004 to ‘06, Katie Gallagher, scored a personal-best 4,554 in the 2005 championships. Burnaby Central’s Angela Anoliefoh and Natalie Jackson shared four titles between them from 1996 and 2000. Jackson’s best 4,712

came in her senior year, while Anoliefoh won as a junior in 1998 when she won with a 4,553 total score. Another Burnaby Central great, Charmaine Cotton, won back-to-back heptathlon titles 20 years ago with a best score of 4,179. ◗Heptahlon Page 20

Senior Salmonbellies win opener in comeback BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR tberridge@royalcityrecord.com

A six-goal outburst in the final period gave the New Westminster Salmonbellies their first Western Lacrosse Association win. Martin Cummings, a thirdround pick in 2009, sparked an unanswered six-goal rally to give the Salmonbellies a 10-7 win over

Knight teen medals in Asia

the Langley Thunder in the team’s home opener at Queen’s Park Arena last Thursday. Cummings began the comeback with a bounce shot from in close at the seven-minute mark of the third period. He then scored the eventual game-winner two minutes later on a nice one-timer at the left crease from first star Jordan McBride.

“I feel we were playing well. We had the energy and were fighting hard – getting chances and playing well on defence,” said Cummings. “We just got one and got on a run in the third.” McBride finished off the thirdperiod scoring with a pair of goals to finish with a game-high five points. Richard Lachlan also figured

big in the comeback, recording his goal and all three helpers in the final frame. With 15 new faces in the lineup from last year, head coach Steve Goodwin was pleased with the outcome. “It started to come in the third period. … We felt we just needed a break, and we’d be back in it,” ◗WLA Page 20

St. Thomas More sprinter Zion Corrales-Nelson won a pair of bronze medals at the Youth Olympic Games Asian qualifying track and field meet in Bangkok, Thailand. The Grade 10 Burnaby phenom, running in her international debut for the Philippines, placed third in the women’s 400-metre run and then settled for a second bronze in a photo finish in the 200m, matching runner-up Ge Manqui of China with a 24.30 clocking at Thammasat University Stadium in the Thai capital on May 22. “I think I did pretty well with the heat,” said Corrales-Nelson of her first truly international meet. “It was a little new to me. I tried to treat it like a meet back home, but it was a little scary. It was like people I didn’t know. I guess it was nerves.” Corrales-Nelson, a 15year-oldFilipino-Canadian, was the sole competitor representing the Philippines at the Asian area qualifier. Nevertheless, CorralesNelson’s personal-best time in the 200m qualified her for the world junior championships to be held in Oregon in July. She ran a wind-aided 24.01 in the 200m last year. Corrales-Nelson, who has run 54-second times in the past, needs to run a 55.16 or better in the metric quarter-mile to qualify for the world juniors. With her results, Corrales-Nelson became the second Filipino woman to qualify for Oregon. Sixteen-year-old FilipinoAmericanKaylaRichardson will join Corrales-Nelson at the world juniors. Corrales-Nelson will also represent STM at the B.C. high school provincial track and field championships in Langley this week, where she will compete in three individual events and in the relays. “The provincials are a big deal,” she said. “It’s three days and a lot of events. But I don’t mind. I think I’m used to it. It doesn’t bother me that much.”

Throwin’ heat: Max Yuen pitched the New Westminster Canadians to a 7-4 win over Kerrisdale and helped the major Little League club to a bronze medal at the 50th Annual Hyack baseball tournament at Moody Park last weekend.

N.W. pair named All-Americans New Westminster’s Justin Goodwin was named an All-American for a second straight season in U.S. Intercollegiate field lacrosse. The Lake Erie College long pole was named a third team all-star after an honourable mention nod in 2013. Goodwin was a first team All-Eastern College conference selection and two-time player of the week this season. He col-

lected a team-high 96 ground balls, while forcing 29 turnovers on a team defence that finished seventh in scoring defense in NCAA Division II. Lake Erie won its first conference title this season, following a 9-7 victory over Seton Hall. Teammate Regan Harding was named to the second team, following a season as East College player of the year.

Heptathlon: Event not in her future ◗ continued from page 19

Perhaps the best of all BurWest high school heptathlete was Allison Eades, who won four consecutive titles from 1980 to ’83, breaking her own provincial high school record three times with a B.C.-best 5,156 aggregate in her final year. That record did not last

long however. D.W. Poppy’s Kelly Ann Kempf set a new standard of 5,262 in 1985, which stood up for nearly three decades until Ellenwood’s record-setting performance last year. While Schultz fully intends on becoming B.C. high school sports ninth multi combine-events

winner, she has no plans to continue the gruelling event into her post-secondary future. “I’ll definitely do (the heptathlon) in my high school years. I don’t mind most of the events. … But personally, I don’t want to pursue it, it’s such a tough event,” she said. – Tom Berridge

WLA: Take on Burnaby at Q.Pk on Thurs. ◗ continued from page 19

Goodwin said. “We feel we have the potential for a strong offence down the road. It’s a big step up from junior. But we’re happy to get out of this one.” New team captain Curtis Hodgson and Colton Clark, with his first WLA goal for the Fishmen, gave the home team a 2-1 lead after the opening period. But after Eric Lewthwaite’s first of two goals of the night, scored unassisted to begin the middle period, things went south for the home team. Langley replied with four-straight counters to take a 5-3 lead, but Matt MacKenzie brought the deficit to within one with his first career goal in the final minute of the

period. Neil Tyacke got the start for New West and was sound when he needed to be, stopping 23 of 48 total shots in the final 20 minutes of play. Cummings, who at 26 finds himself in an unfamiliar role of a veteran, says the new, young players have brought a “new energy” to the squad. “Everybody is really eager to work with each other, no one is set in their ways,” Cummings said. This Thursday, New West hosts the Burnaby Lakers in their first game of the season at Queen’s Park. Game time is 7:45 p.m. tberridge@burnabynow.com
