TRANSCRIPT

  • Ling Su was at home theevening of June 13, strug-gling to put her two littleones to bed, when Christo-pher Alexander Serrano laybleeding in the street, just ablock away.Su hadnt heard anything

    unusual, but she could seethe emergency vehicle lightsflickering from across theback alley while she was inthe shower.Never did it cross my

    mind that it would be mur-der, a shooting, she said.Serrano was involved in

    an altercation, possibly in-side a vehicle, at about 9:30p.m. in the 3900 block ofForest Street, just one streetover from Sus. Neigh-bours heard shots, policewere called, and someoneperformed CPR on Serra-no, but he was pronounceddead about an hour later inhospital.Su learned what hap-

    pened from her husband,who heard about it on the11 p.m. news.Serrano, 29, was a self-

    professed drug dealer whoslit a strangers throat withbox-cutters after an argu-ment at aVancouver night-club.The man survived,and Serrano spent twoyears in jail. Su has no ideawhy he was in her neigh-bourhood that night hishome address is in Co-quitlam.The killing left Su with a

    sense of unease and a stron-ger desire to connect withher neighbours at the an-nual Spruce Street blockparty. Su feels its evenmore important to contin-ue the block party tradition

    so people know each oth-er and their neighbourhoodand can tell when some-thing is out of place.The home is where the

    heart is, and if these eventshappen too close to home,were going to have to ad-just and be wary of newfaces, Su said.This years block is set

    for Saturday, July 19, from11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on thestretch of Spruce Street be-

    tween MacDonald andSmith avenues, which cov-ers roughly 50 homes.Neighbours are volunteer-ing to organize the event,and they have money fromtheVancouver Foundationsneighbourhood small grantsprogram.The murder is atopic of discussion amongthe group, and they feel itsimportant to keep the blockparty tradition alive and thecommunity safe, according

    to Su.No one is immune to

    violent individuals cominginto neighbourhoods, butcommunity block watchor neighbourhoods that

    speak up, thats importantfor me. I want to be able tocontinue to walk aroundthe neighbourhood andfeel comfortable, Su said.These are real issues thattouch real residents at a ba-sic level, our homes, our se-curity.Antonia Beck, execu-

    tive director of the Burna-by Neighbourhood House,knows how important it isto connect with ones com-

    munity.Much of her workfocuses on bringing peopletogether through block par-ties and community events,much like the one Su andher neighbours are orga-nizing.I think knowing your

    neighbours is really key intogether creating that com-munity of safety and senseof belonging and sense of

    Sure, summer is awe-some. Its hot, its sunny,you get time off, you can goto the beach. But lets faceit, for lots of families, sum-mer is also pretty darn ex-pensive.Add in extra childcare, summer camps, gas forthe road trips, camping fees the costs just keep onmounting.Which is why I figured

    it was time to write the de-finitive Cheapskates Guideto Summer Fun in Burna-by a.k.a. our top-10 list forfree and cheap family fun inthe city.So, next time you gulp

    Parents and teachers wantto know how the Burnabyschool board plans to spendthe extra $1 million re-turned to the district by theministry of education lastmonth.In February 2015, the

    ministry announced districtsaround B.C. would have totrim a combined $54 mil-lion in administrative sav-ings from their budgets $29 million for the 2015/16school year and $25 millionfor 2016/17.Last month, the govern-

    ment said it had decidedto redirect the $25 millionfor 2016/17 back to the dis-tricts. For Burnaby, that willmean an extra $1,027,783cash for next year.But, while some B.C.

    boards have called extrabudget meetings to decidewhat to do with the windfall,

    BurnabyTeachersAssocia-tion president Rae Figurskysaid the local board has yetto announce any plan.I dont think theyve

    done anything, she told theNOW onWednesday morn-ing, so we dont know whatthey plan on doing.The local teachers union

    sent the board a letter onJune 15, requesting the dis-trict use the extra funds tohire about 12 more teachersnext year.The District Parent Ad-

    visory Council has alsopressed the board for clarifi-cation about its plan for themoney in a letter read out ata public school board meet-ing June 13 by outgoingchair JenMezei.We hope that some of

    the funds redistributed toBurnaby will be used to ad-dress the issues and con-cerns that were broughtforward by school represen-tatives and parents during

    our district budget consul-tation process last month,Mezei said, such as increas-ing counsellor time,moresupports for special needsstudents and increases tocustodial hours to providecoverage for custodial ab-sences.Chair Ron Burton told

    theNOW no decisionshave been made yet abouthow the extra money willbe spent next year, and theboard will probably sched-ule an extra finance com-mittee meeting during thesummer to formulate a plan.Well try and deal with it

    before next September, sowe have things in place, likeif we have to hire other EAsor teachers or that, we haveit done for next year.As for getting input from

    parents or teachers, Burtonsaid partner groups alreadygave their input during bud-get consultations this springand in the letters they sent.

    someone always needs ahand to do some chore, andtheres nothing better thanbeing needed.We love them because go-

    ing to a block party reminds

    us of just how lucky we areto be alive in this time andin this place.We love them because

    getting closer to real peo-ple always shows us how wehave so much more in com-mon than we could haveever imagined.We love them because

    young people and old peo-ple mingle and play gamestogether.We love them because

    sometimes you all get toplay bocce or street hockey

    and not care how good youare at it.We love them because

    theres usually a baby ortoddler who makes us allsmile.We love them because

    theres nothing like takingover a street and not hav-ing to worry about cars andtrucks sneaking up behindyou.We love them because

    someone always has a greatfunny story to share.We love them because

    New digs for police pooches

    ToomuchriskinpipelineplanKinder Morgans pro-

    posed project to increasetheir transport of dilut-ed bitumen from the east-ern Burrard Inlet to the Pa-cific Ocean offer risks thatare many times higher thanthose accepted for other ma-jor infrastructure projects.As Concerned Profession-

    al Engineers (CPE), we feelthis is not acceptable. Webelieve that a proper analysisof risk needs to be made toascertain whether risks pro-posed by Kinder Morganare acceptable and anythingless than that is gross neg-ligence on the part of deci-

    sion-makers.First, what is risk?The

    dictionary defines it as a sit-uation involving exposure todanger or exposing some-one or something valued todanger, harm or the possi-bility of financial loss.Whenit comes to building infra-structure like homes, bridg-es, buildings and highways,various levels of governmenthave established buildingcodes.These are set parame-ters for how structures mustbe built so they meet a toler-able risk.Kinder Morgan predicts

    a 10 per cent risk of a majoroil spill, greater than 8,250cubic metres during the 50-year operating life of theproject.They have not made

    available the computationaltools they used to make thatrisk analysis.As well, thePort Authority ofVancouverrefused a recommendationto clear theVancouver har-bour when the oil tankerswould be moving through it.On top of this, the risks andconsequences of a tankerhitting the Second NarrowsBridge have not been evalu-ated, despite our requests tothe National Energy Board(NEB).Together these vari-ables increase the risk of theproject.Even accepting Kind-

    er Morgans computer gen-erated risk assessment, theTrans Mountain Expansionposes a far higher risk thanwhat is acceptable for build-ings and bridges.Building codes demand

    that the risk of an earth-quake occurring, causingprobable collapse of a struc-ture, be no more than twoper cent over a 50-year peri-od. Kinder Morgans num-bers are five times higher(10 per cent over a 50-yearperiod). In other words, theacceptable risk for an oilspill is not up to the samestandard as it is for earth-quakes.New bridges like the Port

    Mann Bridge must meetthe Canadian bridge codeguidelines that the probabil-ity of collapse be no morethan 0.5 percent over a 50-year operating life. This is inrecognition of the fact that ifa ship collides with a bridgeit could cause catastroph-ic damage to the bridge oreven collapse.

    Theatre of the absurdunfolds in BurnabyDear EditorRe: Fedspitch in for transit proj-ects,BurnabyNOW, June 17.

    The largepicture accompanying this storywas themost interestingpart forme; havingalwaysbelieved that of all the one-liners thatJay Lenoproduced, his best onewas: Politicsis really showbusiness for ugly people. Thatwas so very apparent lastweekwhenCanadasPrimeMinister andB.C.s Premier appearedin this picture taken inBurnaby, using theCanada Line train as an expensive backdrop.Theywere joined in this theatre of the absurdbyother federal, provincial andmunicipalpoliticianswhoall gaveperformancesworthyof anOscar.We, theGreatUnwashed, knewwhat theywere about to saywas littlemorethanawell-scripted rehashof previous an-nouncements.

    They all knew it,weall knew it, and theyall knew thatweall knew it, but in thebesttheatrical tradition: The showmust goon.Nothing as trivial as appearing absolutelyphonyand ridiculouswould ever deter thepoliticians fromputting ona show; to informushowmuchof our own taxmoney andbor-rowedmoney (thatwill eventually have toberepaid throughhigher taxes),wouldbe spentonupgradingpublic transit.

    ThePM is picturedwith his hand in the air,nodoubt trying to ascertainwhichway thepo-liticalwind is blowing;while thePremier looksdown trying tohideher glee, figuring this is agreat photo-op for her upcomingprovincialelection campaign.

    Amuchmore savvypolitician thanall thecurrent bunch,whose stellar careerwas cutshort in a theatre, onceobserved: You canfool all thepeople someof the time, and someof thepeople all the time; but you cannotfool all thepeople all of the time.Words ofwisdom fromAbrahamLincoln that shouldbetaken toheart.Bernie Smith, byemail

    Risks of pipeline planare just too high

    Historically, there have been a numberof collisions with the railway bridge at theSecond Narrows, when hit by vessels ofa much smaller scale (weight, height andwidth) than that of an Aframax tanker. Intwo cases, the bridge has been complete-ly knocked out of service and had to berebuilt. Damage to the Second NarrowsHighway bridge can result in economiccatastrophe because it is a main artery oftransportation inVancouver. Is it accept-able to risk collision with any bridges inthe Burrard Inlet? Is the consequence ofan oil spill in the city ofVancouver, a placeseen by the world as both green and vi-brant, acceptable? Our answer is no.Brian Gunn is the spokesperson for CPE,

    pride, Beck said. Youdont want this to make ev-erybody afraid and retreatinto their homes.You wantpeople to feel comfortablein their neighbourhood.As for the murder inves-

    tigation, Jennifer Pound,spokesperson for the In-tegrated Homicide Inves-tigationTeam, said policeare still interested in hear-ing from residents who mayhave seen or heard some-thing. She also said police

    believe the shooting wasntthe result of the neighbour-hood.In some cases, people

    who are engaged in illegalactivity will pick quiet andrespectable neighbourhoodsto make a meet, Pound

    said. It would be specula-tion to say what exactly thismeet was, but we can sayit was not associated withthat neighbourhood. It wasa quiet street, and we thinkthat neighbourhood waspicked for that reason.

    Pound said police are al-ways supportive of pro-grams like BlockWatch,where people keep an eyeout for criminal activity.Theres always strength

    in numbers, too. If you area vigilant neighbourhood,

    you know whats fitting intoyour neighbourhood andwhat isnt, she said.The tip line for the Inte-

    If the provincial govern-ments proposed spill pre-paredness and responseplans were to be given agrade by local Burnaby pol-iticians, they would get, atbest, an I for incomplete.The city was asked to

    weigh in on the provincesthird intentions paper onspill preparedness and re-sponse in B.C., and the pro-posed amendments weregiven a bit of a rough ridefrom council.A staff report generally

    supported many of the ele-ments of the proposed spillresponse regime outlined inthe intention paper, includ-

    ing the ongoing emphasison the polluter-pay princi-ple that requires responsibleparties to have spill responseplans and restore the envi-ronment following a spill.However, the staff report

    also said there are sever-al areas of concern that re-quire further considerationby the province, includingquestions on how the re-sponse would be worldleading, as the proposedregime lacks critical detailsand has not been evaluatedand compared to require-ments of other response re-gimes around the world.The city response also

    noted that, while the paperproposes standardization ofthe type of information re-

    quired in a spill report in-cluding timelines for subse-quent reporting and relatedupdates there is no re-quirement for the polluterto provide certain informa-tion to the regulator, such asthe total volume spilled andthe impact to public landsand third-party properties.Were a long way from

    finished in this process,said Mayor Derek Corrigan.While the mayor ap-

    peared to be satisfied theprovinces process was mov-ing forward, he said theamendments show how lit-tle was in place previously.Corrigan also offered his

    own criticism of the inten-tions paper, suggesting thereis no connection between

    federal and provincial legis-lation and nothing to assurethere wouldnt be a jurisdic-tion battle between seniorlevels of government.No one wants to have a

    jurisdiction fight when youhave an emergency on yourhands, he said.Corrigan also said there is

    no fund or way to compen-sate local governments, whohe argued are often on thefront line and play a key role

    in mitigating the damageand restoration afterwards.There isnt enough rec-

    ognition of the importantrole that we play, he said.Coun. Sav Dhaliw-

    al, while suggesting the re-sponse plans were movingin the right direction, alsosaid calling the provincesresponse world-classwould be premature, notingthere are a few things thatare glaringly missing fromthe report.Other councillors were

    even less impressed.Coun. Paul McDonell

    suggested there is a lot offluff and fancy words,but he doesnt see a lot ofaction. He also noted thereare no measurements on the

    provinces intention to havea world-class response.Coun.Dan Johnston

    agreed, suggesting the re-port read more like a cam-paign brochure, addingwhat the community needsis a plan so that all of theparties can respond to a di-saster and begin the cleanupand rescue process imme-diately.I think its really disap-

    pointing that one responseis one too many, he said. Ithink it needs to be betterprepared than this if weregoing to avoid a poten-tial environmental disasterdown the road.

    Four out of the sevenyouths who took part in awelding camp for B.C. Pro-vincial School for the Deaf(BCSD) students last weekwerent sure they wanted tobe there at first, accordingto surveys they filled out onday one.But, whether it was shoot-

    ing flames or flying sparksor chunks of metal tak-ing shape under their ownhands, their reluctance wasshort-lived.When they showed up,

    they were kind of hummingand hawing whether theyshould be here or not, butwe got them into the booth,and theyve been smil-ing ever since, said AndySmith, a trainer with Iron-workers Union Local 97,which hosted the event at itsBurnaby headquarters June20 to 24.The event was one of 35

    Mind Over Metal camps

    being funded across Cana-da by the CanadianWeldingAssociation (CWA) Foun-dation this year to give at-risk youth a hands-on intro-duction to welding and thecareer options the skill canopen up.The students at the B.C.

    school for the deaf are oftenoverlooked when it comes

    to opportunities in thetrades and we want themto experience welding froma hands-on perspective,said DeborahMates, execu-tive director of the founda-tion, the charitable arm ofthe national welding associ-ation. This is one of manyoutreach projects through-

    out the country the CWAFoundation has planned forthis year, but it is probablythe most unique in terms ofthe demographic.Grade 7 student Mat-

    ty Molloy decided to givethe camp a try because hermom is a welder and shewanted to get a sense ofwhat the job is like.I was a little worried

    about just like fire an dsparks jumping onto yourclothes or burning things ormaking mistakes or hurtingmyself, she told theNOWthrough a sign-language in-terpreter, but this week Ihavent had any problemsreally.Theres been no realbig failures. Its gone well.Pursuing a welding career

    might be an option for hersomeday, she said, but mak-ing art was what appealedto her during the camp.I definitely enjoy the cre-

    ative and art side, she said,but I wouldnt mind doingit for work. I enjoy build-ing things and working with

    my hands. I think its goodwork, but I like the creativeside more.For KenMcKen, western

    manager of the CWA Foun-dation, creativity and a ca-reer in welding arent mutu-

    ally exclusive.To me weldings an art,

    he said, and I think thatskind of what were showingstudents here, is that if theyuse their creativity and usetheir imagination, they can

    become an artist.Wevehad some great creationshere.Who knows where itmight go.McKen said the idea of

    Metal camp for deaf youthdates back to an interactionhe had with BCSD studentsat a LNG conference in Oc-tober.The students showed in-

    terest in the welding simula-tor at the CWA booth, butwere hesitant to give it a try.WhenMcKen point-

    ed out how to use visu-al prompts in the helmet,a few really took to the ac-tivity.The CWA Foundation

    then brought the weld-ing simulator to the schoolin December and decidedto take their work one stepfurther with the camp lastweek.This group here, it took

    a day or two just to get overtheir anxiety, but, I tell you,

    they got fully engaged and,as you can see, theyre busy.Its hard to keep ahead ofthese students, he said.McKen has taught deaf

    welders before, he said, andthe challenges they facehavent prevented themfrom becoming excellentmetalworkers.It depends what youre

    working on, but theresa certain sound that youknow youre getting theproper weld, the proper dis-tancing for your electrodeor it could be for your MIGwelder,McKen said, sothey have that disadvantage,but their other two sens-es seem to pick up, so theymake the difference andthey just have to pay moreattention to what they seeand what they feel, and they

    can become really goodwelders.To give students the in-

    side scoop on what its liketo be deaf and work as awelder, Ironworkers Local97 also invited one of its twodeaf apprentices to comespeak.For BCSD education as-

    sistant Nici Baird, whoworked as a welder for 16years, the camp was a goodintroduction to the widerange of welding careersopen to her students.I thought it was great,

    just to show them whatsout there and that therearent barriers to trades,she said.

    It seems just a few days ago the issue was alack of goals.The Burnaby Lakers, a few days removed

    from scoring just four times in a game thatthey won, flexed their offensive skills onTues-day with a resounding 14-2 triumph over theLangleyThunder.It proved to be a showcase night for some

    of the clubs righthanded snipers, as Burna-by buried the visitingThunder with a barrageof shots, with Robert Church leading the waywith five goals and three assists.For the Lakers, who had averaged just over

    six goals per game over the first eight contests,the offensive explosion was a welcomed sign.There are a lot of good goaltenders in this

    league making it tough to score, remarkedrighthander Scott Jones, who contributedthree of his ownTuesday. There are a lot ofgood defences, but Im glad we got it over 10this game -- I think this was the first time thisyear and thats good for the confidence.Their biggest output prior to this weeks vic-

    tory were a couple of nines a win against

    Langley, and a loss toVictoria.Although goals,and most notably, timely goals, have been ata shortage to start the year, theyve found arhythm of sorts now, noted Jones.We have a lot of guys like Eli (McLaugh-

    lin) and Josh (Byrne), who no one has playedwith before, so we needed to get everyone intopractice, he said. Everyone kind of trickledin but now weve got a full lineup.There are alot of unselfish players and anyone can heat up.Our (righthanders) were good this game andthe lefties were good the previous game so itswhoever has the hot stick.That proved to be Church, a four-year veter-

    an who helped the Saskatchewan Rush win theNational Lacrosse League title four weeks ago.His first of the night came with an extra at-tacker in the dying seconds of the first period,then followed it up with back-to-back tallies inthe second, one of the shorthanded variety.Hed add a couple on the powerplay to cap a

    thorough evening. Jones, meanwhile, also net-ted a shorthanded goal to kick off the third.Picking up a pair each were Jackson Deckerand Peter McFetridge, while Jason Jones andDane Stevens added singles.For Jones, the whole focus isnt on goals, but

    the W on the board at the end of the night.Our (defence) showed in the past two

    games, letting in just two goals (each game)that its pretty top echelon this league, saidthe Port Coquitlam product. If we can get theoffence, put in 10 goals a game Im pretty con-fident our defence can keep them to seven oreight and most nights we could win.After missing the playoffs last season due to

    a tiebreaker, the emphasis this time around isto lock up a spot with some degree of com-fort. Not so easy, considering the top five spots with 5-4 Burnaby in fifth are separated bythree points.For Jones, the playoffs are Job One.As a ju-

    nior in PoCo, the playoffs were a pipedream.My last championship I think was in inter-

    mediate, (in) 2007, so thats a while. I haventwon a playoff series since Ive been here so ifwe can get one of those under our belts andget to the finals, you never know what hap-pens.Anyone can beat anyone on any night inthis league, he said.The Lakers, who visited NewWest on

    Thursday (past theNOWs deadline) hostsixth-place Nanaimo at the CopelandArenaonTuesday.
