The number of City of New Westminster employees earning $100,000 has more than tripled in the past decade. The city has released its annual statement of financial information, which shows 79 employees were in the $100,000 club in 2013, an increase from 70 in 2012 and 66 in 2011. All totalled, 22 city employees were paid $75,000 to $79,999; 62 received $80,000 to $89,999; 31 got $90,000 to $99,999 and 79 topped the $100,000 mark. In 2003, 25 city employees earned $100,000 or more – including nine police officers. Since that time, the province asked that names of sworn officers in the New Westminster Police Department not be included in the report of financial information. With her $183,031, Lisa Spitale becomes the first female to be the top income earner at city hall. Spitale was named the city’s chief administrative officer in April 2013. In addition to reports about council remuneration and expenses, severance agreements and supplier of goods and services of $25,000 or more, the report includes information about employees earning $75,000 or more. Spitale was one of seven city employees who earned more than $150,000 last year: Dean Gibson, director of parks, culture and recreation – $174,092; Tim Armstrong, fire chief – $173,961; Gary Holowatiuk, director of finance and information services – $167,899; Rod Carle, general manager of the electrical utility – $168,279; Jim Lowrie, director of engineering – $164,836; Rick Page, director of legislative services – $151,318; and Pierre Gaudreault of the electrical utility – $150,349. According to the report, the city paid $19.5 million to the employees earning $75,000 or more and an additional $24.9 million for all other city employees (excluding sworn police officers.) In addition to the remuneration, the city also paid $477,523 for city business expenses for employees in 2013. ◗City Page 10

No more ballots for Betty BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Five-term city councillor Betty McIntosh is heading into the homestretch with her political career. McIntosh, who was first elected to city council in 1996, won’t be seeking re-election in November’s municipal election. “It’s not quitting. It’s retirement,” she told The Record. “I am retiring because it is best for my family.” After working in Royal Columbian Hospital emergency department for 38 years McIntosh retired as a registered nurse in 2009, but she’s continued to serve on council. Her husband Ken retired in 2001 as an officer with the New Westminster Police Department. “Ken and I still want to be able to do more travelling. We have a trailer that we bought last year. This lets us be able to go away for two months – I say two months, he says six,” she laughed. “I am a bit of a homebody. I’ve got my veggie garden out back.”
Instead of planning vacations around meant to be difficult but to get details the best fit for council’s schedule, about the subject at hand. “I don’t believe in partisan politics at McIntosh will be able to travel whenever she wants.

Teachers and their supporters were out in force on the picket line at New Westminster Secondary Tuesday morning as members of the teachers’ union started the first day of the full-scale strike. The strike came after negotiations broke down over the weekend between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the province’s negotiating body, the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association. Grant Osborne, president of the New Westminster Teachers’ Union, who was on the picket line with about 70 striking teachers and a dozen CUPE support staff Tuesday morning, said he was “incredibly disappointed” with the way negotiations went over the weekend. “The government indicated it was willing to sit down and do hard bargaining, and the BCTF tabled its proposal on Friday and the government didn’t even choose to respond until Sunday evening,” he said. “What they came back with was worse than anything we’ve seen.” The teachers’ union proposed an eight per cent wage increase over five years, down from the previous 9.75 per cent, and the government countered at seven per cent after previously having offered 7.25 over six years, Osborne said. According to Osborne, also part of the government’s latest proposal was the condition that if the B.C. Supreme Court of Appeal rules against the province in the fall, the collective agreement could be torn up within 60 days. “It has galvanized teachers,” he said. Several teachers on the picket

Labour dispute: Teachers and CUPE support workers walk the picket line at New Westminster Secondary School. Tuesday was the ﬁrst day of the teachers’ full-scale strike. line mentioned the B.C. Supreme Court ruling earlier this year, which the government is appealing, that found the teachers’ rights to limit class size and composition were illegally stripped from the contract in 2002. “It is ironic in that they give us a curriculum wherein we have to teach executive legislative and judicial powers, and yet they are completely ignoring the judicial and calling it an opinion,” said teacher Trevor O’Rourke. Fellow New Westminster Secondary School teacher Shirley Chan agreed. “I am just really shocked that the government can get away with breaking the law and going against what the Supreme Court rules. That is just not right,” she said.
Education Minister Peter Fassbender said Monday the government had submitted a comprehensive proposal to the teachers’ union over the weekend. “The ball is squarely in their court at this stage,” he told reporters. While the pickets will remain up this week, the Labour Relations Board ruled last week that provincial exams are an essential service, so those will go ahead. John Gaiptman, superintendent of schools for New Westminster, said Monday there will be a separate entrance, free from picketers for teachers and students who must be present for exams. The fate of summer school still hangs in the balance.
“We are urging students who want to be part of summer school to enroll as soon as they can. So the sooner they do that the better, and we are anticipating we will have summer school, but we have not heard yet,” Gaiptman said. Gaiptman said most students took their belongings home last week when the strike looked imminent, but that for those who didn’t there will be an opportunity to come back and get their things without having to cross a picket line should the strike continue. Teachers have been without a contract since June of 2013. In addition to wages, the main sticking points are class size and composition. For updates, go to www. royalcityrecord.com.
Bill for city council tops $350,000 BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
New Westminster taxpayers shelled out $356,898 for city council in 2013 – a drop of nearly $20,000 from a year earlier because councillors claimed fewer expenses. The recently released statement of financial information includes a document listing council remuneration and expenses. Mayor Wayne Wright had the highest pay at $93,205, followed by Coun. Lorrie Williams at $37,456, and councillors Betty McIntosh, Bill Harper, Chuck Puchmayr, Jaime McEvoy and Jonathan Cote, all at $36,757.

In 2013, the city paid out $314,446 for council remuneration, but council members also claimed expenses of $42,452 for a variety of community events and conferences. The cost of council was $374,596 in 2012, which included $318,403 in remuneration and $56,193 in other expenses. In 2013, the Union of B.C. Municipalities, Federation of Canadian Municipalities and Lower Mainland Local Government Association conferences were the top expenses for council members. Williams spent the most on these conferences with her $4,154, followed by Wright at $4,075, Puchmayr at $3,828, McIntosh at

A member of the Wait for Me, Daddy task force, she also claimed $1,082 for work on this project. Wright, who chairs the New Westminster Police Board, claimed $155 in expenses for police board business.

City endorses park plan by school BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Community gardens, open space and a climbing spinner will be among the features in the future Saint Mary’s Park. The city has approved a design concept of the park that will be located next to the new École Qayqayt Elementary School on the former St. Mary’s Hospital site. The design being supported by council includes community gardens along one side of the park, an open lawn area for sports and picnicking, a large nature play area that includes features such as sand, logs, stumps, boulder sand vegetation, and a climbing spinner. According to a staff report, the school district is planning two outdoor areas for École Qayqayt Elementary School. “It’s great that we can meld together what the community needs and what the school needs,” said Coun. Betty McIntosh. One of the plans had called for double the community gardens that will be provided when the park opens, something McIntosh said can be added in the future
if needed. While community gardens are a great amenity, she said the city still needs to have grass and spaces for children to play. Coun. Jonathan Cote said the Albert Crescent neighbourhood is deficient on green space, so this park will go a long way to assisting the community. He would have preferred having more community gardens in the park, but supported the concept. “Ultimately this is going to be a great park for the neighbourhood,” he said. Now that city council has endorsed its preferred option, staff will work through detailed design, prepare tender documents and get ready for construction to begin. The city is anticipating that park construction will be complete in the fall of 2014. According to the staff report, the budget for the Saint Mary’s Park is $300,000. This project marks the first time the city will use an in-house parks and open space planner to design and manage a major project to completion. Follow Theresa McManus on Twitter, @TheresaMcManus

Drop the expectations and settle the dispute
Teachers’ pay and beneﬁt demands are too high, and the government’s stand on class size/composition is unreasonable Writing an editorial during collective size and composition, including vital special support assistants and school bargaining is akin to washing your car counsellors, are part of the – a settlement (rain) is sure to new collective agreement. happen as soon as this goes The six per cent over five to press. But that would be a THE RECORD years is just 0.5 above support good thing, so let’s cut to the staff workers, but it is more chase. Here’s what we think than CUPE workers will receive. And, would be a fair settlement: Follow frankly, while we highly value teachers, CUPE’s support staff workers’ model CUPE workers at the same schools have and accept six per cent over a five-year to pay the same amount for groceries, contract with the provision that class
housing and gas as the teachers do. At press time Tuesday the BCTF was still hoping for eight per cent over five years but with a lot of sundry additional increases in benefits. This is unreasonable given other public sector settlements. But it is also unreasonable for the government to keep insisting that class size doesn’t matter. Of course it does. It has an impact on workloads and student-teacher time. The lack of
adequate special needs helpers and counsellors in schools also impacts teachers’ ability to work and does not give students who need special help the respect and attention they deserve. By the time this editorial lands on your doorstep we suspect there will be a settlement that no one is happy about, but if there isn’t – well, we’re more than happy to provide this one free of charge.
Mayors’ vision has a hefty price tag IN THE HOUSE
s far as wish lists go, the one put together by Metro Vancouver’s mayors when it comes to future transit and transportation improvements is indeed an impressive one. It’s got something for everyone, pretty much no matter where they live. Take the SeaBus all the time? No problem, they’ll increase the number of sailings. Need to travel down West Broadway in Vancouver? Why, here’s a subway for you, at least part of the way. Whether you need to cross the Fraser River, take buses anywhere or get from A to B in Surrey, the plan has something for you. But what it doesn’t have, and what may be is its Achilles heel, is any certainty when it comes to how to pay for all this stuff. And it’s expensive stuff: $7.5 billion. Oh, the mayors have come up with some ideas on the funding front: bridge tolls, road “pricing” (which can be interpreted in different ways), property taxes and, oh yes, a massive cash injection from “senior” governments might fund everything. But one idea – getting $250 million from the provincial government’s carbon tax revenue
– was quickly shot down by the provincial transportation minister. This was entirely predictable, and in fact mayors were signalled that tapping into the provincial carbon tax was a non-starter, so why it was included in the revenue grab bag is mystifying. Of course, the provincial government will have to help fund some part of whatever transportation infrastructure plan ultimately comes to fruition in Metro Vancouver, but what that translates to remains to be seen (although it will be funding a new Massey Bridge to the tune of about $2 billion, hardly chump change). After all, improving transportation is vital to economic growth. The movement of goods and services around the metro region is critical to the local economy, and it’s in the provincial government’s own interest to help fund those improvements Still, the mayors deserve credit for being able to recognize which projects and needs have priority in the region. Their plan is a longterm one – stretching out for 30 years – and is based on a huge spike in population size. Getting them to agree on a grand plan is no small feat. For so long, parochial interests have prevented them from seeing the need to accommodate each other’s interests. But the mayors’ plan raises two key questions: is everything in it actually needed, and is it all affordable?
Re: City’s Pattullo plan gets support from biz group – The Record, June 13. I read this article with bemusement. The McBrideSapperton Residents’ Association has struggled with formally supporting the “position paper” the city recently released supporting a new, tolled, fourlane bridge as the best option for the Pattullo Bridge upgrade. The problem I have is that when the city took this “position paper” on the road, stopping off at various nearby municipalities, the joy ride took a whole new turn in Surrey. Coun. Jonathan Cote told Surrey that perhaps the four-lane bridge could actually become a six-lane bridge in the future. And lo and behold there it is: not included in the headline story in The Vancouver Sun on Friday ◗Mayors Page 7 June 13 about the mayors’ $7.5-billion transporta-

tion plan but rather tucked away, out of view on page 10, and I quote: “The plan also calls for a new four-lane $980 million Pattullo Bridge, which can be expanded to six lanes later on.” If six lanes is not a good idea now, how on earth will it become a good one in the future? I think, especially in this election year, that it would be prudent of the citizens of New Westminster (and all municipalities, for that matter) to abide by the old adage: Actions speak louder than words. Listen to what your elected officials say … but more importantly, watch what they do!

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Lawyers are in the wrong ◗ continued from page 6
13 (Supporting discrimination is simply wrong). The decision of some 77 per cent of the lawyers of B.C. to discriminate against future graduates of Trinity Western University School of Law is simply wrong. Under the terms of its charter, Trinity Western University is required to provide university education with an underlying philosophy and viewpoint that is Christian. While it is certainly true that certain Christian sects and denominations have endorsed same-sex unions or marriages, the majority have not. Throughout the over 50 years of its existence, TWU has required students to adopt a community covenant consistent with its Christian worldview. When Trinity Western’s community covenant was challenged by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation in 2001, the Supreme Court of Canada sided with Trinity Western. It is interesting to note that the Civil Marriage Act specifically states that no person or organization shall be deprived of any benefit, or be subject to any obligation or sanction, by reason of the expression of their beliefs in respect of marriage as the union of a man and a woman to the exclusion of all others. Sadly, if the Law Society of B.C. reverses its acceptance of Trinity Western University as an approved faculty of law, Trinity Western’s future law school graduates will in fact be deprived of the right to practise law in British Columbia (although Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Prince Edward Island, and possibly others, will accept them), not due to their training or ability as lawyers and whether they are “of good character and repute” (the current criteria in the Legal Profession Act), but due to the school which issued their law degree. This is discrimination. And for 3,210 lawyers to have supported it on June 10 is simply wrong. Peter Anderson, New Westminster
Transparency welcomed Dear Editor:
Health Minister Terry Lake and interim board chair of the Fraser Health Authority Wynne Powell have both been quoted
On what’s needed, I suppose one can argue all kinds of significant transportation and transit improvements and investments will be “needed” over a long period of time. However, Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan seems to be the only one to grasp the key political reality – voters (those who keep these mayors in or out of office) will surely bristle at a plan that threatens to reach deep into their wallets, and getting provincial and federal governments to fork over huge amounts of cash is a pipe dream. I’ve written before about the conundrum facing the mayors: everyone wants more service, and everyone wants someone else – that guy over there in that car, that person on the bus – to pay for it all.

Grads hurt by dispute
No matter what happens with the B.C. teacher/provincial government negotiations, the damage to students, especially Grade 12 students, has already been done and is irrevocable. They have missed critical class time over the past month, units of study have been skipped or super-condensed by disillusioned and distracted teachers, marks have slipped. And even though provincial exams go ahead this week, there has been little or no time for class review or doing mock provincial exams to prepare. They cannot hope to achieve their best in these circumstances. After years of interruptions due to work stoppages and job action over the last decade, this year’s crop of B.C. grads goes out with a whimper. We have failed them. Mary Ann McKenzie, by email
Mayors: Plan raises many questions ◗ continued from page 6
is now accepting
recently saying that the outcome of the long-awaited Fraser Health review will not be released publicly as the findings are too “technical” and “too complex.” Patients, front-line staff and the Official Opposition have repeatedly called for public input as well as the public release of the review’s findings. On May 28, in response to my questioning, Minister Lake told the legislature that “there will not be a separate report on the review made public.” So it was very encouraging to hear Mr. Powell state last week that at least some aspects of the review will be released. Powell told CBC radio on June 10 that Fraser Health will be, “releasing as much data as we can because we want to be absolutely transparent about the results in regards to Fraser.” This change should be applauded and lauded as a win for patients and the public as a whole who deserve nothing less than honesty and transparency on how Fraser Health will learn from its mistakes. It is a crucial first step in restoring confidence in the leadership of the troubled health authority. Hopefully, the review will lead to specific action on wait times, emergency room congestion, and investment in seniors’ care and community health.
People feel taxed-out, and it will be interesting to see if the mayors aggressively push for their constituents to pay for tolls, road pricing and higher property taxes to pay for enormously expensive infrastructure. All this is leading to a referendum which presumably will give voters the chance to say yes or no to host of taxation and revenue measures. Am I the only one to think the no side will crush the yes side? Reason doesn’t enter into this debate. Most people cannot comprehend the sheer financial enormity of what the mayors are proposing, and cling to a belief that a magical solution does indeed exist, one that sees things built without costing them a nickel more.
! Last week’s Ontario election result, like the last B.C. election, serves as a reminder that some old assumptions about elections have to be challenged. First, political polling may be a sunset industry. A series of polls in the last couple of days suggested a statistical dead heat between the Liberals and the Conservatives, and a surge in NDP support. Instead, the Liberals romped to an easy majority win. Secondly, calling a government “scandal-plagued” doesn’t seem to hurt its re-election chances. Instead, voters these days seem to be wary of change, no matter how many so-called scandals dog an incumbent government. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

name recognition.” Although McIntosh feels she is being verbally “attacked” on a weekly basis in council chambers, she doesn’t want that to dissuade people from running for council. “I am hoping the younger people I have been mentoring will be able to step forward and there will be a little bit more of a balance,” she said. “We can’t assume these (incumbents) will be re-elected. I think there are members of council who are at risk of not being re-elected.” McIntosh made her first foray into political life when she ran for school board in 1993. After being elected on election night, she lost her seat after a recount was held. “The main reason I ran then was I had been actively involved in PACs and DPAC and had a youth focus,” she said. “My three kids were just getting out of high school.” Four councillors chose to run for mayor in the 1996 election, including Lynda Fletcher-Gordon and Kathy Cherris. Both suggested McIntosh should run for council rather than school board.
McIntosh, who was among the 26 councillor candidates in 1996, won a seat. She was bumped off in the 2002 election, but reclaimed her seat in 2005. “This is a team working together. I don’t look at it as I did this or I did that. We have done some really good projects in the city since ‘96,” she said of her years on council. “It’s not an individual triumph. It’s ‘what can we do as a team?’” While she won’t be on council, McIntosh plans to continue being involved in the community and supporting community events. She’s involved with numerous groups including Dunwood Place auxiliary, Trefoil Guild (for Guides), Royal Columbian Hospital nurses’ alumni, New Westminster Horticultural Society, Century House, Sapperton Pensioners’ Association, Knox Presbyterian Church, Fraserside Community Services Society and Irving House. “You can enhance your life with whatever you do,” she said. “You don’t have to be a politician.” twitter.com/TheresaMcManus

Councillor reports will continue
It’s business as usual for the council reports section of city council meetings. Coun. Jonathan Cote recommended the city develop a policy stating that council reports would not be introduced at council meetings after 10 p.m. He said exceptions could be made for pressing matters, such as offering condolences. Regular council meetings include a time where council members report on items such as meetings and events they’ve attended. Coun. Chuck Puchmayr thinks the matter should be handled on a case-by-case basis, as council reports are sometimes avoided if a meeting is running late. “The public like the reports,” he said. “Sometimes we go a bit late.” A recommendation to have staff develop a policy on the issue resulted in a three-three tie, so it failed. – Theresa McManus

‘It’s the best job in the world’
ix young men are living out their dreams as recruits with New Westminster Fire and Rescue Services. After a lengthy recruitment process, the group of six started its training program in New Westminster on March 31. Instead of training on how to put out fires and get people out of vehicles involved in accidents, their early training focuses on public education, fire prevention, inspections and fire education. “It’s a different way to start their careers off,” said Dan Wilson, captain of fire prevention. “I think that’s a good thing.” Wilson said firefighters have traditionally acquired inspection, education and prevention skills and learned about the city THERESA MCMANUS over the course of their careers, but new recruits are learning about those things from the get-go. “This is the second group we have done this way,” he said. “I think we are going to see good results.” Sean Lowden, one of the recruits, said the training program has helped the newcomers expand their knowledge of New Westminster. “It’s a really good background,” he said. “It’s been really beneficial with our getting to know the city.” In their early weeks on the of training, the recruits toured places such as Anvil Centre, the Kruger plant, schools, Massey Theatre, Canada Games Pool and Queen’s Park Arena. Stephen Downey, another recruit, believes the training will be invaluable in the years to come and will help the newest firefighters be better prepared on the job. “I was pretty stoked,” he said about being hired. “I am really, really excited. It was thrilling to get that phone call.” That’s a sentiment shared by all of the recruits, most who have taken courses at the Justice Institute of B.C. and done on-call work with other fire departments. Downey has a fine arts degree from the University of Victoria, while most of the other recruits have backgrounds in a variety of trades. Lowden previously worked as a heavy-duty mechanic and a first aid instructor with St. John Ambulance, but always had a goal of being a firefighter. “My father was firefighter in Vancouver. He retired after 31 years,” he said. “I was a sponge. He is probably the only person who could be as happy as I was. My mother too.” A native of London, England, Alasdair Dunbar said he’s thrilled to become a fire-

“They already have exposure to firefighting,” Armstrong said, “it’s just not specific to the department.” New Westminster Fire and Rescue Services recruits firefighters in conjunction with the City of New Westminster’s human resources department. “It’s about a six-month process to go through the hiring. We look at all their credentials, we do a written test. We have an outside training company that comes in and does the written test. They do a ride along program where they come in and spend a couple of days, just doing basic skills. The training officer and the crews assess, try to get a reading on how they fit in as far as hustle and willingness to jump in and work as part of a team environment. We take those assessments and we pare that down to who we are going to interview.” Interviews are the next step in the lengthy recruitment process, with those
interviews narrowing the field to the successful applicants. “It is very competitive,” Armstrong said. “The other thing we are finding to is we are also competing with other municipalities because the demographics right now seem to be there are a lot of retirements. We had quite a few retirements. After the war, a lot of guys were hired. They started retiring in the late 70s and early 80s. There was a big hiring in the late 70s early and early 80s – now that group is starting to come up to retirement. So we are seeing a lot more turnover. That’s something that’s common around the Lower Mainland and throughout the province.” For every retirement, there are numerous folks willing to fill those boots at the fire hall. “It’s been amazing,” said recruit Mike MacLean. “It’s been a dream come true. I enjoy going to work every day. Guys are always saying, it’s the best job in the world.”

Pier Park wins another award BY THERESA MCMANUS REPORTER email@example.com
A riverfront park slated to house an urban beach and a public art installation has garnered another award bringing the total to nine. In recent weeks, the city has received two more awards for Westminster Pier Park. The British Columbia Parks and Recreation Association recently awarded Westminster Pier Park its Parks and Open Spaces Award, which exemplifies the value that recreation services and innovative facilities have on the high quality of life in communities. The award takes into account key design elements such as accessibility, environmental protection and the benefits to the community. It also recognizes the value and need for community engagement to ensure public and stakeholder input and acceptance. The most recent award for the park comes from the Royal Architectural
Institute of Canada, the Canadian Institute of Planners, and the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects who named PWL Landscape Architects as the winner of the Civic Design Projects Award for the design of Westminster Pier Park. The Civic Design Projects Award recognizes urban design and architectural excellence within a municipal context. The Urban Design Awards program has been established to recognize individuals, organizations, firms and projects that have contributed to the quality of life in Canadian cities and their sustainability. “I am very proud of the recognition Westminster Pier Park, the park designers, and our city continue to receive,” said Mayor Wayne Wright in a press release. “The transformation of this previously underutilized area in our downtown to a beautiful and sustainable green space for our community to gather and play is an achievement worth celebrating.” This is the ninth award Westminster Pier Park has received since the $25.9-

million facility opened in June 2012. The park includes pathways, playgrounds, a building that’s home to a concession and a lookout area and other features. Upcoming additions to the timber wharf section of the park include an urban beach and an area for group fitness activities. Future additions for the timber wharf, which gets its name from the fact that the original timber piles and decking are located on this portion of the park, will include a labyrinth, a small off-leash dog enclosure and enhancements to the volleyball area. As part of the Vancouver Biennale, a major public art installation is set to be located in Westminster Pier Park. Although the park is currently only accessible by a parking lot located between the park and River Market, construction of a new pedestrian overpass at Fourth Street is underway and expected to be complete in the fall.

Local residents – dog owners and non-dog owners alike – are invited to attend the open house that’s being held on Thursday, June 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Century House, 680 Eighth St. City staff hope to get input about where the off-leash area should be
The Elizabeth Fry Society is seeking to make summer fun for children with a parent in prison. Three years ago, the society launched its Blue Sky summer camps for children with a parent involved in the justice system. Operated under the Just Kids initiative, which supports kids who have experienced parental incarceration, five camps are held between July 1 and Aug. 1 and are open to kids aged six to 15. Karen McCluskey of
the society noted that the camps are provided at a modest fee of $30 per week. “If parents/guardians can’t afford that, they can volunteer in lieu,” she said. According to McCluskey, the camps cost the society $400 per child, but they’re offered at a lower rate so cost isn’t a barrier to attend. The cost includes everything, including transportation, accommodations, food and activities. During the three- or four-day camps, children have a chance to enjoy a normal camp experience where they’re just like everyone else. Counsellors who are trained to support children with the unique challenges often faced
by kids with a parent in prison attend as well. To register, contact kirsty.gordon@elizabethfry. com.

Juniors chalk up eighth straight win
BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR email@example.com
Junior A New Westminster Salmonbellies scorers played to the nines against Delta this weekend. Anthony Malcom and Josh Byrne both garnered a game-high nine points in New West’s 16-10 win over the Delta Islanders in Ladner last Saturday. The win gave New West the season series over the current fourth-place B.C. Junior Lacrosse League club and avenged its only loss to date this season. It was also the junior A club’s eighth straight victory heading into Wednesday’s battle of the bigwigs in Coquitlam. The Adanacs currently hold a one-point lead over New West with one more game played. The two teams play what could be a deciding third game in two weeks’ time also in Coquitlam. “It’s the two top teams. … A win puts the winner in postition for first place,” said Salmonbellies head coach Dan Perreault. The matchup pits two of the league’s high-powered offences, both of which have been putting up big numbers in recent games. In Ladner, Malcom led all scorers with five goals and four helpers, while Byrne, who is currently averaging four goals per outing in his first five games this season, recorded his fifth consecu-
tive hat trick since returning from college. Connor Robinson, who leads the scoring chase over Delta’s Eli McLaughlin by nine points, upped his season totals to 74, including his sixth hat trick and 32nd goal of the year. Ross Bowman was sharp again in goal, stopping 41 Islander shots. The New Westminster keeper currently leads all goalies with an 83.21 save percentage, while averaging 6.85 goals against. Johnny Pearson also moved into the 30-goal club on Saturday with a pair of goals for New West. The visitors hopped on top of Delta in the opening period, outscoring the Islanders 9-4, including six goals in a six-minute span. The junior ‘Bellies chased Islanders’ starting keeper Ryland Hood from the cage at 13:29 minutes of the first period. Matt Keith made 28 stops the rest of the way for Delta. New West had a sharp 30.65 per cent shot average on Delta in the game. But Perreault expects a closer contest in Coquitlam. “It could come down to special teams, which team is cashing in,” he said. “But we’ll be prepared.” New West is at the Coquitlam Sports Centre on Wednesday for a battle for first place with the junior Adanacs. Game time is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
Hyacks give Whatcom County teams a show The New Westminster Hyacks outscored the opposition from the Whatcom County high school football league at a spring jamboree in Washington State last weekend. The varsity Hyacks outscrimmaged Blaine, BurlingtonEdison and Anacortes high school teams in the controlled grid matchups. New West’s starting defence gave up just one touchdown. Jeff Lugtu, the team’s most improved player during spring training, led the Hyacks with six tackles and one forced fumble. He also played well at tight end. The Hyack defensive line also put consistent pressure on the opposition, with Abraham Faroughi and newcomer Jorge Yarwood standing out.

Scoring a priority for goalstrapped Salmonbellies BY TOM BERRIDGE SPORTS EDITOR firstname.lastname@example.org
Finding that scoring touch is proving elusive for the New Westminster Salmonbellies shooters. The senior A club dropped its second and third Western Lacrosse Association games in a row this weekend after a 7-4 loss to Maple Ridge at home Thursday followed by an 8-7 defeat in Coquitlam on Saturday night. Lack of firepower up front appears to be the No. 1 problem in recent weeks, where the Salmonbellies have managed just 18 goals for in their last three outings – a meagre six goals a game. “We need to score goals,” said New Westminster head coach Steve Goodwin following Thursday’s loss to the Burrards. “We have to get back to basics – second possessions, second opportunities, and we’re not getting those second shots. We have to get some balls on offence.” At home, the ‘Bellies outshot Maple Ridge in an evenly played contest, where both goaltenders Frankie Scigliano for the Burrards and Alexis Buque for New West –
New West named Paciﬁc Coast minor association of the year
Minto Cup combatants in last year’s Canadian junior A championship final – garnered the top two stars, respectively. This time Scigliano came away with the win following a 46-save performance for the Burrards. Buque had 41 stops at the other end of the floor. “It’s a good feeling getting one here tonight,” said the former junior A Salmonbellie keeper. “They have good team speed, we had to come back tonight and match that.” Colton Clark opened the scoring for the ‘Bellies on a transition goal from Buque midway through the first period. The two teams traded the lead into the final frame before Burrards’ lefthander Riley Loewen gave Maple Ridge the lead for good with his hattrick goal a minute later. In Coquitlam, with Neil Tyacke getting the start in goal, New West took a 4-1 first-period lead. Tyacke was sharp, stopping 17 shots in the opening frame and 41 in the game. The visitors mustered just 30 shots in reply on Coquitlam’s Adam Shute and only 19 in the latter two peri-
ods as Coquitlam came back with four goals in an eight-minute span of the third period to move into a fifth-place tie with New Westminster with identical 2-4-0 records. New West got a goal each from transition runners Tyler Crompton and Jeff Cornwall to start the game. “It’s not our defence’s job to score. We have to get our offence to score,” Goodwin said. “Our offence was off (on Thursday). We didn’t get inside like we have to, and we’re To view going to correct that. a video, “Right now, the offence scan has to catch up with the with defence, and that’s what we Layar need to do.” Jordan McBride led Salmonbellie scorers with his teamhigh 10th goal and four assists, while Martin Cummings continued his strong early season play on the left side with his seventh and eighth goals of the campaign. First star Brett Hickey had a game-high six points for the A’s, including the 7-6 go-ahead goal midway through the final period. New West hosts last-place Nanaimo Timbermen at Queen’s Park Arena this Thursday. Game time is an early 7 p.m. start.
The New Westminster Minor Hockey Association was recently named Pacific Coast association of the year. The Royal City organization was the recipient of the Fred Page Memorial Trophy given out annually to the minor hockey association judged to have made an outstanding contribution to its community. The current executive was singled out for its ongoing player skill development and commitment to providing clinics and mentorship programs, as well as serving as chair on various Pacific Coast committees. The association also quickly stepped in to offer ice and volunteers to host a second Final Four when South Delta lost its ice during last season’s playoffs.

SFU football moving to Swangard Stadium Simon Fraser University football will be calling Swangard Stadium home again for the 2014 season. The Clan will play six home varsity football games at the Central Park stadium this fall. “Swangard Stadium is a great venue for our student-athletes to compete in and for our fans to enjoy great football in,” said senior director of athletics and recreation Milton Richards in a Clan media release. “It’s another example of how we at Simon Fraser University are serious about engaging our community. We hope we can spend the next several years at Swangard, while the Build SFU project is completed.” SFU will host two games in September, one in October and three more in November. The 2014 season will mark the Clan’s third season as a full member of the NCAA, and one that sees a new head coach and alumnus Jacques Chapdelaine, with a Vanier Cup and three Grey Cups as a coach, try to add an NCAA Division II title to his resumé.
“Swangard Stadium certainly has a rich history of hosting SFU athletic events,” said Chapdelaine in the release. “I think playing at Swangard will give us an opportunity to engage more with the community. I have fond memories of my playing days at Swangard and I know the atmosphere that can be created at an event there. We plan to recreate that atmosphere this fall.” Two new opponents will visit Burnaby this season. The Menlo Oaks will play in SFU’s home opener in a non-conference game on Sept. 6, while the South Dakota School of Mines Hardrockers, new to the Great Northwest Athletic Conference, will also visit Swangard. All home games will be played at 1 p.m., except for the home opener against Menlo, which will kick off at noon. The Clan will also travel to Idaho to face off against Div. I Idaho State Bengals in the 12,000 seat Holt Arena on Oct. 11. Tickets can be ordered now by emailing email@example.com. Twitter @ThomasBerridge

while David Penalver also had a pair of scores. Wide receiver Matt Seymour and quarterback Jamie Shiho also showed well on offence. “I feel very good about this group coming out of spring camp. We’ve gotten better throughout the 10 sessions, we’ve
added some depth and I think our chemistry is very good,” said varsity Hyack head coach Farhan Lalji. “Defensively this could be our best group since 2009. We’ve got a good rotation going in our front seven with very little drop-off, and our tackling in the secondary was much improved.”
