Bob Page.Taylor remains in custody. He faces charges of aggravated assault, discharge of a firearm, possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition, and possession of a firearm while prohibited.We are unable to provide any further details at this time, Page said.The shooting happened June 21 at about 8:30 p.m. when Burnaby RCMP began receiving several calls about shots being fired at the mall.When officers arrived they found a 51-year-old man with gunshot wounds. He had been shot while sitting in his vehicle outside the McDonalds restaurant. The injuries were serious but non-life threatening. At the time, police said witnesses reported seeing two people running from the scene. twitter.com/WandaChowProperty purchased by Onni GroupWanda Chowwchow@burnabynewsleader.comThe Onni Group is planning a major redevelopment around the Gilmore SkyTrain station that will turn it into a gateway to the Brentwood Town Centre area.The developer has applied for a rezoning to establish a conceptual master plan and a detailed first phase of development.The property, identified as 4161 and 4171 Dawson St. and 4120, 4160, 4170 and 4180 Lougheed Highway, is almost 12.5 acres and located on the east side of Gilmore Avenue between Lougheed and Dawson.While six of the parcels are vacant, two are home to light-industrial and office buildings and the largest is occupied by two mid-rise office buildings built in 1982. A portion is taken up by the Millennium line SkyTrain station built in 2003.Onni is proposing a highrise, mixed-use residential and commercial development with a substantial office component. It also proposes building a new public road linking Dawson to Lougheed on the site to improve access to the station and pedestrian-oriented retail on Dawson, said a city staff report.The Brentwood Town Centre Development Plan adopted by council in 1996 designates the site for high-rise housing and business park development with a high office use component.In 2002, the former owner of the property, Standard Life Assurance Company, received rezoning approval in principle for a proposed mid- and high-rise office project.

(IIO).Jacob, 45, was a Vancouver resident and the son of Squamish First Nation Chief Gilbert Gibby Jacob.Shortly after 1 a.m. on Jan. 31, 2013 a Burnaby RCMP officer responded to a 911 call of a man with a knife in the 4100-block of Albert Street. The officer spotted a suspect matching the description on Hastings Street near Macdonald Avenue.Following a confrontation, the man was shot and taken by ambulance to Vancouver General Hospital where he died soon after arrival.Burnaby RCMP Cpl. William Wark testified he ordered Jacob to get on the ground, according to media reports of the inquest held in Burnaby. Jacob instead kept walking then stopped and pulled out two large knives from his backpack before running at the officer. Wark fired three times at Jacob who died of gunshot wounds to the chest.At the time of the shooting Jacob was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for parole violation, had stopped taking his medication and was acting aggressively and depressed. Wark was cleared of wrongdoing last year by the IIO, which investigates such officer-related incidents.The IIOs report into the case included details of an interview with the complainant, a female friend who had been drinking with Jacob.The womans interview by an IIO investigator was played at the inquest. In the IIOs report she said Jacob had helped her move and after having dinner they were sharing some alcohol. He pulled a knife out of his backpack to cut up a lime for the drinks and she asked why he was carrying a knife. He indicated it was for his protection. When she challenged him on this, he responded with I could kill you; you know that, right now and not give a sh--. The complainant recalled the affected person stating he could kill anybody right now and not give a sh--.The complainant knew the affected person was subject to a warrant and he had told her that he was not going back to jail. He had said the only place he was going was in a box. She was fearful and told the affected person she was going upstairs. She went upstairs and called police.Another Burnaby RCMP officer who witnessed the incident told the IIO that Jacob sprinted at the subject officer, who then retreated and fired three shots, said the IIO report.While Wark was trained to use a Taser, he did not have it as part of his equipment the night of the incident, the report said. The knives Jacob wielded appeared to be chefs knives eight to 10 inches long. A toxicology report concluded he had an elevated blood alcohol level but there were no prescription medications or illicit drugs detected, it said.The IIO said under the circumstances the officer would not be criminally liable for shooting Jacob to defend himself from an imminent attack.Officers are trained that when deadly force is a necessary option, to aim for center mass. Even the most highly trained marksman would have difficulty striking a limb, hand or foot of an assailant during the course of a fast moving, emotionally charged critical incident.The inquest jury recommended that the health ministry, with B.C. Ambulance Service, investigate the addition of more [Advanced Life Support] units to the Lower Mainland.It also recommends that Burnaby RCMP officers receive more training on their communication equipment, specifically concentrating on the matter of queueing during emergency situations.RCMP E Division spokesperson Sgt. Rob Vermeulen said by email that such recommendations are taken very seriously by the RCMP.They are reviewed by its criminal operations branch which provides a full written response to the coroner, he said. twitter.com/WandaChowWednesday, July 30, 2014 NewsLeader A3Infocus OPINION page 6 | SPORTS page 13RYAN STELTING/CONTRIBUTED FILEAn officer surveys the scene following the shooting of Ryan Allen Walter Jacob in January 2013.It was to be a new regional office for Standard Life and to include over one million square feet of office space. It also included a smaller multi-family and mixed use component along Dawson. But the rezoning never moved forward to final approvals with the applicant citing changes in the office market which made the proposal no longer economically feasible, the report said.Between 2004 and 2010 Standard Life tried to amend the redevelopment concept but one suitable to be forwarded to council never materialized.The company sold the site to Onni last year.The aim is to create a mixed-use gateway into Brentwood Town centre thats been long expected, the report said.While Burnaby has become a model for transit oriented development, including the Master Plan concepts for Brentwood and Lougheed Malls, the subject site is one of few within the region that have the opportunity to be fully integrated with SkyTrain at ground level, mezzanine level and potentially at track level, providing unprecedented access to transit by residents, employees, patrons and the surrounding community, it said. With this opportunity in mind, the Gilmore SkyTrain Station was purposefully scaled back in its form and materiality, so that in the future it could be fully integrated with surrounding development.Burnabys planning department will work with Onni on a concept and Phase 1 development plan. When its complete, it will go to a future public hearing.twitter.com/WandaChowProject a chance to fully integrate Gilmore StationJury makes recommendations in Jacob inquest continued from FRONT PAGENEW MANAGEMENT!

They raised issues including traffic, the closure of the pub, privacy, existing trees on the site, and vehicle and fire access.Although the pub provides for a community gathering space, the property owner has indicated that the pub is no longer financially viable on the site, the report said. In addition, it is noted that the pub has a longstanding history of noise complaints.Bricks and beams from the current building, designed to look like a mountain chalet, are proposed to be reused as a touchstone of the sites past.At the request of the Nova Vita housing co-op next door, the plans for a six-foot-high cedar fence between the two properties will be changed to one thats eight-feet tall, similar to the existing brick wall, the report said.City staff reviewed vehicle access and determined there could be no changes to vehicle access due to the sites awkward shape and grades and the proximity of the intersection of Barnet and Pandora. The fire department also visited and had no concerns with fire access.The 16 trees on site cant be retained due to the excavation needed for the underground parking, but they will be replaced with 22 trees as required under the new Burnaby tree bylaw. The property was vacant until 1979 when Burnaby city council approved a rezoning to allow the neighbourhood pub to be builtAs for the pub itself, owner Mike Anastasi told the NewsLeader last month that he recently signed a two-year extension to his lease so it will not be developed for a while.Mountain Shadow Pub gets rezoning approvalCouple killed in crashA Burnaby couple has been identified as the victims in a fatal crash near Revelstoke July 20.Lai Hing Wong, 74, and her husband, Tang Sing Ling, 75, were killed when the minivan they were in crashed on the Trans-Canada Highway around 2:30 p.m., about seven kilometres west of Revelstoke, says the BC Coroners Service.Ling was driving and Wong was a rear-seat passenger. The single-vehicle accident saw the minivan, which was eastbound, go off the highway to the left and hit a large dirt embankment.Wong died at the scene while her husband was flown by air ambulance to Kelowna General Hospital, where he died of his injuries the next day.The BC Coroners Service and RCMP Traffic Services continue to investigate the deaths. newsroom@burnabynewsleader.comBurnaby RCMP are asking for the publics help in finding a purse-snatching suspect.A womans black Chanel purse was swiped while she was at the food court in Metropolis at Metrotown mall on July 12 at about 8:45 p.m.While a bystander chased after the suspect, he was assaulted outside the mall near the Target store on Central Boulevard.The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, 18 to 21 years old, clean shaven with short brown hair.

Harinder Paul Pabla approached a woman in the parking lot at Willowbrook Mall in Langley on Dec. 31, 2011 to complain that she had taken the parking spot he had been waiting for.She responded rudely and swore at him, her language peppered with F-bombs, saying she didnt see him signaling for the spot, according to an RCMP disciplinary decision. When Pabla suggested she get a lighter pair of sunglasses, she responded with vulgar language and gave him the finger. Pabla responded in kind, calling her a dirty slut and making other lewd comments. The woman answered that by kicking him twice in the left knee and leg and hit him in the chest with her purse.She told him to stop following her although they were walking towards the same entrance. Pabla produced his badge, identifying himself as a police officer and told her hed arrest her if she assaulted him again.Not long after, she swung her purse at him again, hitting him in the groin and head area. He swung his arm out to defend himself, contacting her shoulder, then carried on into the mall and to his destination, the dentist office.A passerby called 911 and the woman complained of being assaulted by Pabla, who was then charged with assault.Pabla was acquitted of assault in August 2013, the RCMP decision said. Judge Jardine ruled the woman had actually assaulted Pabla and not the other way around.Jardine also commented that Pabla had to a significant degree been the author of his own misfortune by having instigated and perpetuated the antagonism. As a trained police officer he ought to have known better than to have spoken to Ms. O at all.Jardine said despite the vulgar language the woman used, Pablas demeanour, tone, use of sarcasm and gutterspeak was unacceptable, and was not the standard expected of a 16-year member of the RCMP.Among mitigating factors for Pabla in the RCMPs decision was the fact he admitted the incident. Particularly impressive was that he completed his masters degree while under suspension for the incident, it said. Mountie docked six days pay for potty mouth incidentArrests made after stabbingA drunken dispute on SkyTrain after Saturdays Celebration of Light fireworks in Vancouver resulted in a woman exiting an eastbound train at Edmonds station screaming that her boyfriend had been stabbed.The victim, a 40-year-old resident of Surrey, was transported to hospital by ambulance to be treated for a stab wound in his arm that required five stitches. Anne Drennan, of Transit Police, said the argument developed after three men boarded the train at Broadway station. The suspects fled the train at Edmonds and two of them were arrested immediately. They were questioned and later released.Transit Police recovered a knife that was used in the stabbing.Theyre also still looking for the third suspect. Hes described as a white male, 20-25 years old, 58 to 59 tall, 150 lbs., wavy brown hair cut short on one side and wearing a black t-shirt and black cargo shorts.Transit Police are asking anyone with any information about the incident to call them at 604-515-8300 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).14-073.11_Fireplace_4.3125x7-P1.indd 1 5/2/2014 2:12:26 PMDealer #6249www.gacheckpoint.comPORT MOODY 3034 St. Johns St., 604-461-3434ABBOTSFORD31926 Mercantile Way, 604-854-3440Includes: 1.

Those vehicle stickers with the L (for learner, or as teens prefer loser) and N (for novice, or in teen-speak nerd) have been around since 1998. The two steps make getting a full drivers licence a longer, more difficult and expensive process.Statistics provided by ICBC show what new drivers are up against. First there is the written knowledge test to obtain a learners permit. From 2004 to 2008, more than half of applicants failed in their first attempt. Things improved in subsequent years, with a46-per-cent failure rate in 2009 declining to 42 per cent by 2013.The first road test is required to go from L to N and it seems sufficiently harsh. The failure rate has been consistently around 47 per cent in the past six years. More practice and another $35 are required to try again.Students fare better on the secondroad test, where the failure rate is consistently 21-22 per cent for the past decade.ICBC reports that in the first three years of the graduated licence program, the new driver crash rate dropped by 16 per cent. In 2003 the required learner and novice period were extended, and restrictions on the novice stage were increased. New driver crashes fell by another 28 per cent.Those restrictions include the number of passengers and a zero tolerance for alcohol.Impaired crash and injury statistics arent available for drivers in the graduated licence program, only fatalities. They grew as more new drivers were enrolled in the new system, to a high of 24 in 2007, but that declined to 14 by 2012.There will always be young people who drive impaired, speed or make other fatal errors. But its difficult to argue that todays system in B.C. is lenient.A couple of readers were concerned about the effect of higher rural speed limits on older drivers. One suggested that higher limits on rural highways are a poor mix with vacationing seniors hauling around oversized motorhomes, trailers and boats.Another cited the coming wave of retired baby boomers and added a likely increase in marijuana-impaired drivers, all emboldened by the invitation to drive faster.B.C.s medical health officers issued a letter denouncing the decision by Transportation Minister Todd Stone to raise speed limits. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall said the research is clear that higher speeds increase the risk and severity of incidents.Then there is the governments own position, articulated in a road safety strategy released last year by Attorney General Suzanne Anton.Research is conclusive that at higher speeds, more people are killed and injured in the traffic system, it states. At lower speeds, fewer are killed and injured as a direct result of the safety buffer that lowered speeds create.The strategy notes that new technologies such as adaptive cruise control are becoming available. B.C. is also testing electronic highway speed limit signs that change with weather and traffic conditions.Next comes self-driving vehicle systems, so drivers will be able to check their phones again.Tom Fletcher is legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press.In defence of younger driversA recent ICBC survey found many parents are passing along poor driving habits to their teenagers. And only about a third of them seem to be aware of the impact their bad behaviour is having.Whether its speeding, failing to come to a complete stop or not properly concentrating on the task at hand, for some, the rules of the road tend to grow a little hazy over the years. And the more comfortable we get behind the wheel, the more corners we tend to cut. Most of the time it works out.But for young drivers, who in all likelihood still occasionally flip on the wipers when they mean to signal a turn, there is an overwhelming amount of information coming at them fast.Add to that, heavy traffic, aggressive and impatient drivers and a seemingly endless succession of construction projects to create stress and confusion, and new drivers have enough to deal with.Driving is particularly risky for new drivers because they lack experience. Not only are they more prone to crash but on average, 18 per cent of crashes involving young drivers result in an injury or fatality, the insurance corporation points out.Allowing teens to start out with bad habits passed down however inadvertently is like setting them up to fail.ICBC offers tips for parents as they prepare their teens for one of the (simultaneously) greatest freedoms and responsibilities theyll ever know.Most important, they say, parents should remove themselves from an emotionally charged situation and allow an expert to provide instruction. Whatever the cost, its worth it to know youre giving them their best shot at success.And, of course, it never hurts to set a good example.Langley Times/Black PressNEWSLEADERS VIEW:THIS WEEK:Can parents teach their teens to drive just as well as a drivers school?Vote at www.burnabynewsleader.comLAST WEEK:Should senior levels of government be putting more money into flood protection?QUESTION OF THE WEEK:Driving by example67%33% NOYESPUBLISHED & PRINTED BY BLACK PRESS LTD. at 7438 Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby, B.C.

Its all a bit confusing and annoying.Lower prices can be selectively offered for ladies night specials or team night for players in uniform. Minimum prices do not apply to catered events, or special occasion licences.Liquor price floor shifts for beer jugs, shotsyaPAlburz Smoke Shop .......................604-433-4448Anytime Fitness .............................604-428-4848Donair Delight ..............................604-451-0111Dr. Michael Tiu Inc.........................604-438-8131Easy Financial Services ..................604-436-0143Fen Lin Tailor.................................604-434-1617Gala Caf ....................................604-620-9956Ha Caf .......................................604-438-4818Heng Sheng Financial Party Ltd. .....604-737-9966Jenny Craig ..................................604-435-6616Kerrisdale Cameras .......................604-437-8551Kingsway Computers .....................604-222-1000Liquor Distribution Branch ..............604-660-5486Mengs Art Studio ..........................604-780-3803New Oriental Tutoring Centre .........604-438-1396Old Orchard Beauty Salon.............604-434-3334Old Orchard Lanes .......................604-434-7644Old Orchard Medical Clinic ...........604-431-6585Pacific Sun Produce .......................604-451-7788Pat Anderson Insurance .................604-430-8887Pearl Castle Restaurant ..................604-559-7929Shoppers Drug Mart ......................604-434-2408Subway ........................................604-434-7444Tang Tang Sushi Restaurant ............604-558-3556The Laundry Basket .......................604-437-7744Vacuum Mart ................................604-431-8345With over 25 shops and services, you can enjoy a coffee...relax over lunch, keep fit AND find everything you need on your doorstep!From convenient services to groceries and gift items; from designer fragrances to cameras ... its all here at OLD ORCHARD CENTRE!Old Orchard CentreOld Orchard CentreShopping made easy at...KINGSWAY & WILLINGDON, BURNABYVACUUM MARTUnit#6 604-431-834530% OFFALL REPAIRSSale ends August 31, 2014NortonAnti-Virus 2014ONLY $30.00Unit #18 604-222-1000www.kingswaycomputer.comSpecial!

It certainly is a gem right in the middle of Burnaby and its looking quite beautiful right now.After 14 years, many have discovered that Deer Lake Park is also a great place to experience the blues. Coming up in a few weeks, on Aug. 9 one of the citys key music events the Burnaby Roots + Blues Festival will be featured. With 12 great acts on three stages, food vendors, great local supporters and sponsors, things to buy, an area dedicated to families and an enthusiastic team of volunteers there is certainly lots to do and experience at the festival.To celebrate the 15th anniversary we have brought a few artists back to perform from past years Wide Mouth Mason from 2003, Rich Hope from 2009 and popular acts from 2011 including Imelda May and Canadian artist Matt Anderson who headlines with Big Sugar this year. One new addition to the Blues Family Area is Tin Can Studio. The artist-led studio activities will have you making, moving, connecting and discovering through art. You cant miss it, it will be the Airstream trailer in the area. The Blues Family Area, sponsored by ABC Recycling, will be open 1 to 7 p.m. In addition to Tin Can Studio the traditional guitar making workshop, face painting and play area are all included. Remember that children under 12 are admitted free to the festival (while a ticket is required).Visit www.burnabybluesfestival.com for planning your day and getting to the festival.

Sue KernaghanContributorSkirting a glacial fjord before climbing into the Coast Mountains, the Sea-to-Sky Highway between Vancouver and Whistler is one of the worlds great road trips.You can drive the route in less than two hours, but why rush it?Along the way are ocean views, jagged peaks, thick forests, evocative historic sites and some of the best outdoor adventure on the planet.And thats just for starters. The new Sea to Sky Gondola, opened in May just south of Squamish, can whisk you high into the alpine to see this landscape from a whole new angle. The gondola (actually 20 eight-passenger cable cars) soars 885 metres (almost 3,000 feet) from sea level up onto the slopes of Mount Habrich, offering sweeping views of Howe Sound, Stawamus Chief, Shannon Falls and the surrounding peaks.You can also explore 30 kilometres (19 miles) of hiking trails, ranging from stroller-friendly walks to backcountry treks, learn about the local Stawamus First Nations heritage along the interpretive Spirit Trail or just soak up the views over lunch at the Summit Lodge. While youre up there, watch for climbers on neighbouring rock faces.Rock climbers speak in hushed tones about the Stawamus Chief. One of North Americas largest granite monoliths, the Chief looms 700 metres (2,300 feet) above the town and attracts climbers from around the globe. Sea-to-Sky Country is also a fabulous place to get wet. At Squamish Spit, where the Squamish River flows into Howe Sound, the wind patterns are legendary among elite windsurfers and kiteboarders. Squamish Kiteboarding School can get you started.Whenever you go, youre assured of stunning views, historic sites, great cultural events and pretty much every kind of outdoor adventure going.
