TRANSCRIPT

Christmas was a lot brighter for hun-dreds of Lower Mainland folks, thanks toa popular pasta restaurant in BurnabysHeights neighbourhood.For the past two decades, Antons PastaBar had been closed for Christmas Eve inorder to open its door to the regions mostdestitute.Frank Leone, Antons general manager,has been involved in the dinner since hestarted with the restaurant 16 years ago.It just started when one of the serv-ers suggested we do this for the needy,and the owner,Tony Mauro, heagreed it wouldbe a good thingto do to givesomething backto the communi-ty, Leone said.A n t o n sinvites all ofthe clients fromBurnaby FamilyLife, a non-profitgroup that helpslocal families.The restaurant also spreads the wordthrough various groups that help peo-ple in Vancouvers Downtown Eastside.Guests have included young families, sin-gle moms, women escaping violence, andnew immigrants.With roughly 500 dinner guests, thisyears event was probably the biggest yet,Leone said.Preparation for Christmas Eve oftentakes place three to four weeks in advance,and the dinner gets underway two or threedays before Dec. 24, Leone said. Staff andvolunteers pull together to make sureeverything runs smoothly.The doors open at 10:30 a.m., and peo-ple are often already lining up outside therestaurant. If thats the case, Leone saidthey are invited in for a coffee.Dinner is a set menu, with pasta, twopieces of chicken, dessert and coffee, tea orother beverages.In the morning, the staff and some vol-unteers hand out socks and warm hats tothe dinner guests. They also put out boxesof clothes in the restaurant for anyone whoneeds them.Young families start showing up in theafternoon. Theres also a special treat forthe children: a visit from Santa completewith gifts.Families who sign up for the dinner inadvance can indicate how many childrenthey have, how old they are and theirgender.That information helps Antons collectage and gender appropriate toys aheadof time for the kids. Customers and staffdonate the gifts.Little kids love it because Santa Clausgoes up to them. Its very emotional thing,Leone said.For the past 20 years, Antons has beenorganizing the Christmas Eve dinner withlittle fanfare.For us, it makes us feel good. It makesus realize how fortunate we are comparedto some people, and we want to givesomething back to the community forsupporting us, Leone said. Its just tosee people happy. We want them tobe treated with some respect and dignity,whoever they are.Jeanne Fike, executive director atBurnaby Family Life, said the organiza-tions clients love it.It is their Christmas to go to Antons,a restaurant they wouldnt be able toafford, get wined and dined and get pres-ents for their children, she said. The chil-dren and the parents are just absolutelymoved and thrilled, and it really makestheir Christmas.Your source for local sports, news, weather and entertainment! >> www.burnabynow.comPostcards fromaround the globePAGE 13A guiding handfor studentsPAGE 3Burnabys first and favourite information source Delivery 604-942-3081 Friday, December 30, 2011Spreading cheer and kindnessPopular Burnaby eatery opensits doors during the holidayseason to lend a helping handIts just to seepeople happy.

The public is invited to attend this open house to viewinformation on the proposed development as well as provide comments.A06 Friday, December 30, 2011 Burnaby NOWThe problems and challen-ges facing B.C. Ferries gomuch deeper than figuringout why some of its fleet keepsslamming into docks at highspeed.The recent crash of theCoastal Inspirationinto the Duke Pointferry berth has refo-cused attention onsafety issues, but the most vex-ing problems are more aboutfinances.Of course, four hard land-ings so far this year seems exces-sive. But B.C. Ferries respondsthat its fleet sails more than187,000 times a year and aver-ages about a dozen hard land-ings (of various degrees) a year,which seems to put things inperspective.The most recent crash will beinvestigated and perhaps lessonswill be learned from it and thatwill be that (until the next ser-ious hard landing or accident).But more serious and press-ing problems arent going awayanytime soon.Simply put, the costs associ-ated with running the ferrysystem keep increasing but thenumber of people using it keepsgoing down.Something has to give here.B.C. Ferries keeps raisingfares, but admits its gone aboutas far as it can go with thatoption. At some point, high faresdiscourage casual travellers fromusing the service, and the com-pany may have already reachedthat point.The company is embarkingon a cost-cutting exercise, butthe lions share of its expenses isout of its control.For example, fuel costs havegone from $50 milliona year in 2003 to about$120 million this year.An extra $1 million ayear in additional operatingcosts is courtesy of TransportCanadas staffing rules on ves-sels.The federal agencys newsewage treatment rules comeinto effect next summer, andB.C. Ferries has been required tospend more than $60 million tocomply with them.Labour costs have gone fromjust under $200 million in 2003to about $266 million this year.And interest and amortizationcosts (largely resulting frombuilding badly needed new ves-sels and upgrading terminals)have skyrocketed, going from$68 million eight years ago toalmost $200 million this year.You can talk all you wantabout cutting executive paylevels at the company, but thatsnot going to make even a dentin those expenses. All told, costshave gone up about $300 millionin the last eight years.Another problem that isntgoing away is the delicate issueof just what kind of services B.C.denrThe Burnaby NOW is a Canadian-owned community newspaper published and distributed in the city ofBurnaby every Wednesday and Friday by the Burnaby Now, 201A3430 Brighton Avenue, Burnaby,British Columbia, V5A 3H4, a division of Glacier Media Group.Brad AldenPublisher2008 WINNERPUBLISHER Brad AldenEDITOR Pat TracyASSISTANT EDITOR Julie MacLellanSPORTS EDITOR Tom BerridgeREPORTERS Janaya Fuller-Evans, Christina Myers,Jennifer MoreauPHOTOGRAPHER Larry WrightDIRECTOR, SALES AND MARKETING Lara GrahamADVERTISING REPS Cynthia Hendrix,Cam Northcott, Domenic Crudo, Veronica WongAD CONTROL Ken WallRECEPTIONIST Fran VouriotPRODUCTIONMANAGER Gary E.

This year, we saw seriouscases delayed or thrown out because ofa lack of judges to hear themor sheriffs to keep the court-room safe.The Liberals have alsogutted the legal aid system; a penny-wise, pound-foolish policy that deniesskilled counsel to those in need andbogs down an already groaning systemin the process. With this in mind, itsastonishing that the courts are the onlybranch of our provincial governmentthat has any interest in DerekDelaurier, a 41-year-old manwhose mental disability hascontributed to him commit-ting more than 60 minor, non-violentcrimes.Lacking any other options, a clear-ly frustrated judge recently tossedDelaurier back on the streets, eventhough everyone in the room knewits only a matter of time before hefinds his way back into a police car,a jail cell, and in front of yet anotherjudge with the same futile sentencingchoices.Consider the tax dollars spent onarresting, processing, prosecuting andimprisoning someone more than 60times.Surely that sum would pay for aleast some measure of help for thisman, who is clearly more victim thanvillain.Yet Premier Christy Clarks priorityfor our courts is not to find more judg-es, or sheriffs, or to fund legal aid, or tofind a better way to handle cases likeDelauriers, but to stage televised showtrials of accused rioters yet anotherwaste of scarce court resources.Somethings gotto give at ferriesKeep Christmas greetingDear Editor:The stories that people shared about theirChristmas memories were enjoyable to read and gotme thinking about my Christmas memories grow-ing up. Although my family is not Christian, myparents were open-minded enough to tell us aboutthe story of Jesus as many have done in India evenbefore Christianity ever reached Europe.Although my family was not well off, my parentsdid their best to give us a bit of the commercial-ized experience that Christmas seems to havebecome for many.I may not have appreciated my parents effortswhen I was a child because I could see my bet-ter-off neighbours and friends fully celebratingChristmas with large, expensive Christmas trees,decorations and presents. I certainly appreciatethose efforts now and wouldnt trade those experi-ences for anything.The most profound Christmas story that mymother told me (aside from the story of Jesus) wasmy mothers own personal experience with a trag-edy that she had suffered when I was less than twoyears old.My mother had just been informed at GraceHospital that she had suffered from a miscarriagedue to complications during her pregnancy.Devastated and alone (my father was busy atwork) in the hospital room from news that noOUR VIEWBurnaby NOWLETTERS TO THE EDITORLETTERS TO THE EDITORIN MY OPINIONKeith BaldreyThe Burnaby NOW, a division of GlacierMedia Group respects your privacy.

Ferries is contrac-tually obligated (with theB.C. government) to pro-vide a certain number ofsailings on various routes.But the situation on someof them has become ridicu-lous.For example, on thelightly used Route 26 inthe Queen Charlottes, thelocal ferry made 259 tripslast year in which therewere absolutely no pas-sengers on board at all.Meanwhile, the ferry car-ried a crew of four and, ofcourse, consumed expen-sive fuel.On route 18, whichconnects Powell River toTexada Island, there were176 occasions betweenApril 2010 and Februaryof this year in which threepassengers or fewer wereon board. Meanwhile, theship is staffed with a crewof seven.Those two routes alonelose $8 million a yearbetween them. All told,the minor routes lost morethan $67 million last year,an increase of more than$3 million the year before.This raises some funda-mental questions.For example, does therereally need to be 16 tripsa day between Nanaimoand Gabriola Island? Doesthere need to be almost30 trips a day from SaltSpring Island to variouslocations? For that matter,does Salt Spring Islandreally need three ferry ter-minals?Now, the very idea ofchopping even one money-losing sailing on theseroutes does, of course,elicit howls of rage fromthose who live on thoseislands.But either B.C. Ferrieshas to reduce service onthose money-losing routes,or the provincial govern-ment must increase itsannual subsidy to the com-pany.Provincial taxpayersfrom around the provincegive the company morethan $170 million a yearto operate, but clearly itsnot enough to make endsmeet.Its a tough spot for thecompany and the gov-ernment to be in, but as Isay, something has to givehere. And its going to bea tougher problem to solvethan figuring why theoccasional ferry hits a dockway too fast.Keith Baldrey is chief pol-itical reporter for Global B.C.continued from page 6Ferries: System losing moneyexpectant mother wants to hear, my moth-er cried endlessly. When my mother fin-ished crying, she looked up and noticedthe crucifix that was affixed to the wall.My mother prayed that night, asking for asibling for her son. My baby brother wasborn on Christmas Day that year in 1975 atGrace Hospital. My mother taught me thatmy brother, like everyone and everythingin our lives, is a gift.For me, it is not politically correct tochange the greeting to Happy Holidays.It is rather politically incorrect to do so.I would like to wish everyone a MerryChristmas.Harmel Guram, BurnabyRiots have root causesDear Editor:Surely the Stanley Cup hockey riotwas the story of the Lower Mainland in2011. What has been the fallout from thatnight?The politicians have not learned oneiota from it. The main push from the polit-icos has been to bring those who commit-ted vandalism to justice and to mete it outsternly in hopes that this will deter futurerioters. It wont. It will only briefly satisfythose who did not participate and wantthose who did to pay for their actions.Surely, there must be consequences forones actions if they hurt others.There needs to be retribution and own-ership of wrong doing. What form thatwill take is up to the criminal court judgesto determine free from political pressure ofthe moment.The bigger picture is being ignoredby all levels of government and must beaddressed. The seeming immediate causeof the riot was not whether the home teamwon or lost but was surely fueled by a mix-ture of alcohol and exuberance. But this isstill not the root cause.If you examine the targets of the vio-lence, you get a better insight into whatwent so horribly wrong that night. Thepolice and retail stores for the most partwere the targets. The producers and retail-ers of goods have been bombarding con-sumers with images of their products try-ing to convince us that we need them tobe validated human beings. A culture ofglamour and envy surrounds these prod-ucts and we are not glamorous unless wehave them. This leads to disenfranchise-ment and dissatisfaction. Yes, we shouldbe able to see through all this but some-how that didnt happen and people helpedthemselves to the glamour.The second target of the rioters was thepolice. The confidence in our police forceshas fallen on hard times nationally, pro-vincially and municipally.Ignoring the root causes of protests andriots and then telling the people to eat cakedid not work for France and it will notwork for us.Darcy Olson, Burnabycontinued from page 6Dont change greetingsBurnaby NOW Friday, December 30, 2011 A07DINNER SERVED FROM 7PM4125 Hastings Street, Burnaby BCTel. 604.298.7158email. www.oldadmiralpub.comOPENOPENLATELATEUNTIL 2AM!UNTIL 2AM!NONOCOVERCOVERCHARGECHARGESO TIGHT BANDSO TIGHT BANDperforming after dinner and into the New Year!performing after dinner and into the New Year!ORVancouverVancouverLOVES HockeyLOVES Hockeyand so does theand so does theAdmiral!Admiral!FEATURING:FEATURING:Fine Dining,Fine Dining,DancingDancing& Live Music& Live MusicNEW YEARS EVE CELEBRATIONPRIME RIB DINNER (8 oz.)

They come in, and theyhave a full-course meal at Antons. Theatmosphere is just theres nothing else Iwant to do on Christmas Eve.Most people react with gratitude, Jonessaid.Some of them, their English is not verygood, and some of them are quiet, butmost are really, really appreciative of anopportunity to go to nice a restaurant andhave a nice meal, Jones said.Jones, now retired, likes donning aSantas helper hat and waiting on tables.It really captures the Christmas spiritfor me, he said.According to Jones, the mes-sage for the guests is that thereare people in the communitywho care about them.Many days in the year,they feel marginalized and leftout.

She comes to the Burnabycampus once every two weeks totalk with students.The elders work with staffand students, providing mentor-ship and cultural guidance andhelp with traditional ceremonies.The program draws on the FirstNations belief in the leadershippower of elders.Burnaby NOW: Can you tell me abit about yourself?Margaret George: Thats a bigquestion. (laughter) Ive lived inNorth Van since 61. Im one ofthe only elders in the communitywith a degree. Ive worked prettywell all my life, contract workin the Downtown Eastside, withvarious organizations, workingwith mainly First Nations people,single moms, single dads devel-oping programs so that they canget a better education, better jobs and pretty well raising my fourkids on my own.BN: How does the elders programwork?MG: Were sort of like grand-mothers and mothers and auntsto the students, and we do a lotof encouraging and talking aboutjust things that might be a concernto students, especially the onesthat are far away from home.BN: Is it mostly aboriginal stu-dents you help or is it for everyone?MG: I help a lot of interna-tional students as well. For them,because they are far away fromhome, it becomes very emotional.BN: Can you tell me about a typi-cal day in this program? How does itunfold?MG: Usually students comethrough the door, and they servebannock and tea and coffee whenI am here. And we sit and chat,with some of them. We talk abouttheir assignments, or maybetheres a birthday coming up andthey dont have lots of money fora party for their kids, and howcan they deal with that, or juststories of what theyve been goingthrough, especially the first-yearstudents.BN: It sounds like you are a coun-sellor of sorts. What do you bring tothis that a counsellor wouldnt?MG: Probably more listen-ing than telling students whatto do. I dont tell students whatto do when they are confusedabout something. I just encouragethem to work out their problems.Everything is confidential.BN: Part of the role is sharingelders expertise, life experience andcultural wisdom. How do you tie thatinto the support you give students?MG: It depends what the stu-dents need.We dont push cultureor anything on them, but if theyask, then we tell them.BN: Whats the traditional defini-tion of aboriginal elder?MG: Its a very difficult one toanswer because, being an elder,Ive had to do a lot of research ona lot of cultures. I had to under-stand the difference between thecultures, the language and thegeographical areas where peoplecome from and not say to a stu-dent or an individual, well, yourculture is the same as mine, whichits not.All our cultures and the waywere brought up as individualsto become elders is totally dif-ferent from some people. Say forinstance, someone thinks they arean elder just because they havegrey hair, it doesnt work thatway. (Laughter) Theyve got toreally understand its a lot of lis-tening to people, not giving adviceor telling some people to do whatI did.BN: It seems we live in a soci-ety where, in some cases, elders canbe estranged from their families andcommunities, or seniors can be livingin isolation. Im curious what yourthoughts on that are.MG: In the greater part ofVancouver there are a numberof native elders living in differentapartments, separated from theirhome reserves. Its difficult forthem to go back home.I find with some of my whitefriend elders, they are totally iso-lated from their children. They aretotally isolated from their grandkids. ... They feel they are going tobe a burden on the family, so theylive in isolation in different homesin different areas, whereas in thenative community, in my house Ihave three grand kids living withme. And I dont think I would liketo see them out of the house.BN: Why is this program impor-tant?MG: First Nations studentsneed to understand they are goingto be leaders in the future, andthey need to understand that theyneed to be strong emotionally,mentally physically and spiritu-ally. (The program) helps them dothat by seeing us as leaders andalways coming back and maybeasking a questions:Am I doing the right thing,what is the protocol for this if Imin this territory. Just little things;not how to solve the problems ofthe world, but how to cope witheveryday activities.BN: Is there anything FirstNations students struggle with inparticular?MG: (Finances) is the big one,and being away from their hometerritory is another. And thenlearning how to (handle the edu-cation system). My parents didntgo to school, and neither did mygrandparents, so for me to getthrough university was very dif-ficult. I had no leaders in the edu-cational field, but I had my grand-mother who was a leader in thecommunity and taught me a lot ofskills I needed to survive, but notthe educational part.BN: How has the program beengoing so far?MG: Good, (but theres) notenough time. A lot of students,but not enough time; 10, 12, 15 intwo hours. I would like to seeit expanded. I would like to seeprobably two or three more eldersinvolved.BN: Is there any thing else youwould like to say about the program?MG: I think its a great program,it should have happened fromDay1 when this campus opened.Jennifer Moreau/burnaby nowIn residence: Margaret George works with the Simon Fraser University elders-in-residence program.

Civic, while Ford is knownfor the Mustang and F-150. InToyotas case, its the Camryand the Prius. Meanwhile,911s, Wranglers, MX-5 Miatas,and Beetles all get us think-ing and talking about Porsche,Jeep, Mazda, and Volkswagen,respectively. These cars andtrucks are iconic, serving as theambassadors for their respectivebrands.So, what vehicle gets us talk-ing about Hyundai?A decade ago, it was thethree-door Accent hatchback and the talk was far fromgood. Thats no longer the case,of course, since Hyundai hasturned things around with excel-lent vehicles such as the Sonataand Genesis. Hyundais prod-ucts and reputation have neverbeen better.Still, none of these cars get ustalking about Hyundai at least,not in the same way that thenew Veloster hatchback does.As good as the Sonata andGenesis are, they arent game-changers.The Veloster, on the otherhand, is different from anythingelse on the road, and it has thepotential to be the defining,iconic vehicle for Hyundai.On paper, the Veloster hopesto bring back a market that wasonce defined by affordable, effi-cient, and fun-to-drive cars suchas the Honda CR-X and Prelude,Toyota Celica, and Nissan SXcoupes. These cars once domin-ated the streets, but disappearedas consumers turned to SUVsand sedans.The Veloster is a lightweightfour-seater with nimble handlingand a small, peppy four-cylinderengine. Youll find the usualtwo doors on both sides of thevehicle, a rear hatch to swallowcargo, and thats where thingsget interesting. Step around tothe passengers side, and youllsee exactly what makes theVeloster unique: a third door onthe passenger side.Unlike the departed SaturnSC coupe and soon-to-be-retiredMazda RX-8, the extra door isntof the rear-swinging suicidevariety.Its a standard (if smallish)door that opens independentlyfrom the front to provide easyaccess to the rear seats. Peoplewho need their cars to be sym-metrical may find the Velostermaddening, but others will lovethe practicality offered by theadditional door.While it can be a challengefor passengers to slide all theway across the rear bench seat,its still easier than climbingover the front seat of a two-doorcoupe.Combine the Velostersunique exterior with everythingthat Hyundai has learned overthe past decade, and you get acompact car that delivers amaz-ing styling, solid performance,and great value for money.Even better, you get peopleseeing what Hyundai can andwill be, rather than what it oncewas.DesignThe Velosters front end isdefined by a rounded, trapez-oidal grille bracketed by pointedheadlamps.However, the most notablestyling cues are the carved-outsections below the headlamps,which swoop down and aroundto create a front lip spoiler.Without a doubt, the hardestthing to get used to is that theB-pillars (behind the front doors)are offset from each other, due tothe drivers and passengers sidedoors being different sizes.That aside, the design is suchthat the Veloster looks good inprofile on both sides.Inside, the Veloster reflectsHyundais love of geometricshapes, with angular vents andcutouts set against a V-shapeddashboard. Its inviting andfunctional, meeting and exceed-ing the higher standards todaysconsumers have for compactcars.EnvironmentPracticality starts with theextra passenger-side door, whichmakes it easy to toss gear intothe back seat.You could argue that the doorwould have been more useful onthe drivers side (or to have onboth sides), but having a thirddoor is better than not havingone at all.The front seats are supportiveand comfortable, especially ifyou get the Tech Package, whichincludes seats with bigger bol-sters for more lateral support.Rear passengers will find thatits a tight fit, same as in anyother 2+2 coupe or hatchback.Theyll just have an easier timegetting in and out.From a standard seven-inchtouchscreen and push-buttonstart to heated front seats andrearview camera, the Velosteroffers a ton of notable featuresfor its sub-$20k base price.That being said, its a bitodd that the list doesnt includeautomatic air conditioning, anincreasingly common featurethese days.Theres lots of cargo space,thanks to the rear hatch, and theVelosters low stance makes iteasy to get your luggage in andout without having to reach toofar over the bumper.Sleek: The Veloster offers something unique: a single door on the drivers side and two doors onthe passenger side. Inside (below) it has sleek, compact styling.Contributed/burnaby nowNew offering in theHyundai line has fundesign, good featuresDavid ChaoNOW contributorBurnaby NOW Friday, December 30, 2011 A21A22 Friday, December 30, 2011 Burnaby NOWThe UltimateDriving ExperienceBrianJessel BMW2311 Boundary RoadVancouver, BC604.222.7788www.brianjesselbmw.comVisit brianJesselbmw.com or call604.222.7788 formore details.Offer is subject to availability and may be cancelled or changed without notice.Certain conditions apply.
