    The Burnaby SPCA is trying to find homesfor six sled dogs from Pemberton.

    The dogs, all husky mixes, were given upwhen the company was no longer able tohouse the animals.

    They lost the property in which the ani-mal were being kept, said Ryan Voutilainen,branch manager Burnaby SPCA.

    According to Voutilainen, the dogs were

    kept in pens when they werent working, andthey have dental issues, which may be fromchewing on rocks or the cages out of boredomor frustration.

    City life is going to be very new to them.Its something we will be providing sup-port with, Voutilainen said, adding adoptiveowners can expect advice over the phone andvisits from SPCA staff if needed.

    Its not uncommon for sled-dog companiesto abandon or euthanize their dogs. The 2010Whistler case is an extreme example of inhu-

    mane slaughter: roughly 100 dogs were shotor had their throats slit after a slump in busi-ness following the Olympics.

    There are now new regulations in B.C.,which require sled-dog owners to have anend-of-life plan for their dogs when they gointo retirement.

    In this case this person didnt really haveanything set up, Voutilainen said.

    Anyone interested in adopting a sled dogcan contact the SPCA by calling 604-291-7201or visiting 3202 Norland Ave.

    Canine companions: Mallory Hoyland, an animal-care attendant with the SPCA, with some of the sled dogs that need homes. Thedogs came to the Burnaby SPCA from Pemberton.

    The proposed two-towerGold House development inMetrotown was met with oppo-sition from Burnaby First sup-porters at the citys latest publichearing.

    On Tuesday, former GreenParty candidate Rick McGowanand former Parents Voice schoolboard candidate Helen Wardquestioned the rezoning appli-cation for two highrises one41 storeys, the other 26 onBeresford between Cassie andMcKay avenues.

    While the northern half of therectangular site is designated forhigh-density land use, the south-ern half is meant for mediumdensity, prompting McGowan toquestion how a highrise apart-ment building could be built onthe bottom portion of the site.

    My concern is, if you put asecond tower behind the firsttower, that is going to set a prec-edent for the existing towers that theywill see this as anoppor-tunity to rezone behind those talltowers and build a secondarytower behind it in a north-southorientation, he said.

    Ward asked about thetimeframe for a review of theMetrotown town centre plan,

    It must be hard for record store own-ers to categorize Imelda Mays music.The Dublin-born songstress has a nichegenre all to herself, fusing sultry jazz withupbeat rockabilly and traditional blues into

    a uniquely modernsound that fits herquirky 50s look, pow-erful contralto voiceand onstage spunk.

    Just a few weeksout from the BurnabyBlues & RootsFestival, May chat-ted with the NOWabout performing as a

    teenager in pubs and clubs, sharing the stagewith her classic rock influences and how shelost a boyfriend to the blues.

    Jacob Zinn: Tell me about your upbringing.I understand your interest in music came fromyour older siblings.

    Imelda May: Im the youngest of a big-gish family we had a two-bedroom housefor all seven of us, including my parents, andone record player. I was brought up listen-ing to everything from Bing Crosby and Nat

    King Cole to TheCarpenters, TheSpecials, DavidBowie, Meat Loaf a huge amountof different, greatmusic.

    One of mybrothers was into rockabilly Elvis, GeneVincent, Wanda Jackson and I just wentcrazy for it, but then I also went crazy forwhat came after. Ian Dury, Adam Ant, theClash, the Ramones and all these bands thatmade sense to me in my world.

    JZ: You started performing in clubs at 16 andwere sometimes thrown out for being underage.How was it for you to get gigs in venues thatserved alcohol?

    IM: My brothers and sisters used to sneakme in because I was way too young andthe owner used to turn a blind eye I dontthink you could get away with that anymore.Thats where I learned my trade. Ive nevergone to music college - that was my musiccollege. I soaked it all up and I loved it.

    JZ: After working with some bands for a fewyears, you decided to go solo. What prompted thatdecision?

    IM: I was bored. Not bored with music orthe bands, but I needed a challenge I waswriting my own music since I was 14 yearsold, but kept quiet about it. Like a lot of art-ists, I just wrote for myself and kept all mysongs in a big bag.

    It came to a point where I didnt want tosing other peoples songs anymore. I really,really wanted to do my own stuff. I neededto push myself. Thats when I thought, itsnow or never.

    JZ: Youve really carved out a style that is allyour own. How long did it take for you to find thesound that you were looking for?

    IM: Not long, but forever and not long.Its like, Oh, shes an overnight sensationafter 25 years. Ive been in blues bands, jazzbands, swing bands, soul bands, rock bands,rockabilly bands it took forever, if youknow what I mean, to really get into all ofthese, but then when I was writing my songs,obviously, it all seeped into it.

  • Charges have beenlaid against a 25-year-old Burnaby man whoMounties allege left thecountry to join Islamistfighters in Syria.

    In an emailed statement,the RCMP confirmed thaton July 17, Burnaby resi-dent Hasibullah Yusufzaiwas charged for allegedlytravelling overseas to takepart in terrorist activityby B.C.s division of theRCMP Integrated NationalSecurity EnforcementTeam.

    The accused is beingsought for leaving Canadaon Jan. 21, 2014, to commitan offence for the benefitof, at the direction of or inassociation with a terror-ist group, contrary to sec-tion 83.201 of the CriminalCode, read the statement.

    This is the first timesomeone in Canada hasbeen charged under section83.201 of the Criminal Code a new tool available to theRCMP to fight terrorism,

    according to the statement.The criminal charge is

    part of Canadas Anti-ter-rorism Act, known as BillS-7 or the CombattingTerrorism Act, which wasgiven Royal Assent in April2013. According to theDepartment of Justice, theact allows Criminal Codecharges to be laid againstindividuals who leave orattempt to leave Canadato commit a terrorismoffence.

    Police allege Yusufzaileft Canada on Jan. 21, buthis current whereabouts areunknownat this time.WhileRCMP say they wont com-ment further on the inves-tigation as it is ongoing at

    this time, the statement didsay officers would be work-ing actively with interna-tional partners.

    This investigationunderscores the reality thatthere are individuals leav-ing Canada to take part interrorist activity. Further,it highlights the fact thatnew legislation introducedunder Bill S-7, which cameinto effect in July 2013,enhances our ability tocombat terrorist activity.These charges reaffirm theRCMPs resolve to aggres-sively pursue terrorist actsto the fullest extent of thelaw, Assistant RCMPCommissioner JamesMalizia said in the release.

    More advanced life support units andfurther communications training thoseare the recommendations coming from thejury in this weeks coroners inquest intothe death of Ryan Jacob.

    For three days, presiding coro-ner Margaret Janzen and a five-person jury heard testimony fromofficials regarding the 2013 shoot-ing death of 45-year-old Jacob,son of Squamish First NationChief Gilbert Gibby Jacob,near the intersection of HastingsStreet and MacDonald Avenue inBurnaby.

    Burnaby Cpl. William Warkwas one of the officials whotestified at the inquest. He toldJanzen and the jury that at firsthe thought Jacob was going to complywith his orders. Jacob instead pulled outtwo knives and began approaching Wark,despite repeated orders to get down on theground, according to Warks testimony.

    Jacob was shot three times in the chestand died in hospital.

    OnWednesday, the jury announced tworecommendations following the inquest,which began on Monday.

    To the Minister of Health, the juryrecommended that the ministry, in part-nership with B.C. Ambulance Service, con-sider adding more advanced life support

    units to the Lower Mainland.The jury also recommended that the

    Burnaby RCMP include, in the training ofits members, specific instruction on theworking of their communication equip-ment, specifically concentrating on thematter of queuing during emergency situ-ations, a release from the coroner serviceread.

    According to Sgt. Rob Vermeulen,spokesperson for B.C. RCMP, the RCMP

    takes recommendations from theB.C. Coroners Service very seri-ously.

    In an email to the NOW,Vermeulen said all recommen-dations are reviewed by thecriminal operations branch of theRCMP and researched in conjunc-tion with stakeholders. Writtenresponses for all recommenda-tions are then sent to the coroner.

    According to Vermeulen, theRCMP have to be mindful thatany recommendation made could

    potentially impact on all RCMP resourcesin B.C. and may require additional signifi-cant training, infrastructure and finances,or may have complex legal challengesassociated to any implementation.

    We work very closely with the B.C.Coroners Service and are committed to ini-tiatives, recommendations and improvedcommunication between all stakeholdersthat would allow us to continue to be thebest policing service that B.C. citizensexpect and deserve, Vermeulen said inthe email.

    Weve almost forgottenabout the B.C. teach-ers strike, as its fadedfrom our minds like a bad smell.But you can only spray on somuch odour-masking gunkbefore it comes back, so lets talkabout ending the darn strike!

    I have ideas about ways tosave the province a little moneyand help out young teachers atthe same time. You say I have noexpertise in education or publicpolicy? That is true. On the otherhand, I could literally not doworse than the people who areactually negotiating right now.

    No, really. Theyre competingto see who can toss out the stu-pidest ideas.

    The government has gonequiet on their most egregioussuggestion: Big classes are goodfor kids! Yeah, like back in the1930s! Having one teacher and aroomful of 50 students is a greatformula for success. Lets scrapall computer classes while wereat it, who needs modernity?

    The teachers have been quitereasonable on wage demands,dipping a couple of times. Andthen they asked for $225 million

    a year for a workload fund tohire more teachers. Consideringthe government already hatesthe teachers (and the feeling ismutual) that seems more likewaving a red flag in front of afiscally conservative bull.

    Opponents of the teachersare painting them as wealthy fatcats. Were to imagine teacherslazily dismissing their studentsat 3 p.m. so they can race tothe country club in their jewel-encrusted Porsches, mink stoleswhipping in the wind.

    The reality is that teach-ers pay in B.C. starts as lowas $38,000 and change a year.Which is not to be sneered at,but they also top out at just over$70,000.

    B.C. MLAs start at $101,000 ayear. There is no minimum edu-cation requirement to become anMLA; teachers require years ofuniversity.

    While room to manoeuvrebetween the lower and higherend of the teacher pay scale maynot be massive, it does suggestat least a partial solution to acouple of problems facing theprovince.

    Right now, the governmentwould like to save money, whichis all well and good. And teach-ers in B.C. would like to havejobs, preferably full-time ones.

    Which brings us to the sec-ond problem beyond mere cash there are a lot of unemployedand underemployed teachers in

    All wildfires need is a little carelessnessThe little bits of rain we received this

    week might have dampened a few sum-mer spirits in the Lower Mainland, butthey were a godsend in places wherethey lowered the forest wildfire risklevels.

    Where the risks werereduced at all, the respite islikely to be temporary.

    Hot weather and increas-ing wildfire risks with it is expected toreturn by the weekend.

    Indeed, fire officials expect that

    areas in which the wildfire risk levelshave been high will likely join theextreme classification before long.

    Dont let this weeks glitch fool you,the expectations are still for an unusu-ally dry summer. With that in mind,

    and the propensity for BritishColumbians to get out andenjoy the natural beauty thatsurrounds us, the protectors

    of the provinces forests and wildernessare asking everyone to be careful, andto be vigilant. Thats not a plea only to

    local residents planning to get out intothe wilds, but also to the thousands whoflock to this province every weekendand through the week.

    Whether you live here and takeadvantage of the natural amenities inyour own backyard, or if youre drop-ping by from elsewhere for some funand relaxation in the great and wereally mean GREAT outdoors, takecare that it isnt ruined for future hikersand boaters and nature enthusiasts. Itdoesnt take a great deal of carelessness

    to spark a huge wildfire. Were seeingevidence of that in West Kelowna andin other parts of the province, whereits not just beauty and wildlife that arebeing destroyed, but thousands of peo-ples homes are being put in jeopardy,as well. If you see smoke while youreout there, do not hesitate to call B.C.sWildfire Management Branch at 1-800-663-5555 (or *5555 from a cellphone).

    And try not to create any of thatsmoke yourself. Our nature depends onyou.

    Mountain not seismically safe?Dear Editor:

    In the end of Jennifer Moreaus article, Mayorwill reject Kinder Morgans land request (BurnabyNOW, July 18, 2014) Mayor Corrigan provides ainteresting quote, saying this in regards to BurnabyMountain: The initial assessment weve got is themountain is not particularly stable. It may not beseismically safe

    So, is this a case of the mayor of Burnaby statingthat Burnaby Mountain is not seismically safe ingeneral or may become seismically unsafe if drillingis done?

    Or is this simply just grandstanding by MayorCorrigan on his crusade against Kinder Morgan?

    The mayor has certainly raised some questionswith his comments though.

    If the initial assessment, to which the mayorrefers, has shown stability issues with BurnabyMountain, why have followup assessments nottaken place?

    Surely such assessments would have taken placeprior to the City of Burnaby allowing the continueddevelopment of an entire subdivision on BurnabyMountain.

    It would be greatly appreciated if the mayorfully explained or elaborated on his comments, andI sincerely hope this is not another case of city coun-cil playing politics with the public safely over themayors fight with Kinder Morgan.

    LETTERS TO THE EDITORPipeline delay not goodDear Editor:

    Re: Pipeline hearing delayed, BurnabyNOW, July 18

    For those opposing the pipeline, thedelay is not something to rejoice about.It means that the federal cabinet will nothave to give their approval prior to thenext federal election.

    They can avoid taking a position on thepipeline while the hearings are underwayand avoid any appearance of support forthe project. The reality is that the HarperConservatives are 100 per cent in favourof the pipeline. They can, as the provincialLiberals did, take the position that they areawaiting the report from the NEB beforemaking any decision.

    They are so determined that the tarsands oil will get out of Alberta that theyhave given themselves power to overrideif necessary decisions of the NEB. The newroute for the pipeline through BurnabyMountain has the appearance of a con-trived strategy to delay the hearings sothat a final report will not be issued untilafter the next federal election.

    The City of Burnaby may be an unwrit-ten accomplice in this delaying tactic bynot cooperating with Kinder Morgan toallow access to the mountain for geotech-nical studies required for the tunnel. Canpolitics be this devious? Unfortunately, forthose who have no regard for the futurehuman life on the planet, this is a smallsin.

    Patrick Keogh, via email

    Mayors stance too arrogantDear Editor:

    Re: Pipeline fear mongering, Letters tothe editor, Burnaby NOW, July 18

    Mr. Corrigans arrogance should have

    insulted every taxpayer in the city. Hisclaim, to represent Burnabys citizenswhen rejecting the Kinder Morgan pipe-line, is a laugh. I know many more respon-sible people who are in favour of develop-ing our resources. They should outvote hissupporters any time. But, in fairness, heusually gets the vote out when it counts.

    It was particularly annoying to hearhim dismiss the idea of tunnelling throughBurnaby Mountain.

    Using a tunnel has to be the least dis-ruptive way to anyone; its an opening ateither end with no one living in between.Yet Mr. Corrigan made it sound likeKinder Morgan was going to destroy all ofBurnabys parkland!

    It is time for a change in Burnaby!Ziggy Eckardt, Burnaby

    Speeding column off baseDear Editor:

    Re: Mr. Speed gets a Liberal boost, In myopinion, Burnaby NOW, July 11

    Mr. Groenveld says proponents ofhigher limits will say that the real menaceson the road are those that frustrate theminto doing stupid things by sticking closeto the speed limit.

    This is code for I know there are fourlanes on the number 1 highway, but I willdisregard all logic in creating those lanesand drive in whatever one suits me on anyparticular day. Oh and if you dont like itscrew you.

    I understand you are trying to help, anddrivers that go faster than you are veryupsetting to you, but the fact is you cannotsafely drive your vehicle and police every-one else. And its not your job. Move outof the passing lane, let that crazy speedergo by, and be glad they are gone and nolonger bothering you!

    Teachers: Buyouts an optionB.C. There are 69,400people with valid teachingcertificates in B.C., and just30,101 full-time equivalentjobs in the school system.About two to three timesas many teachers aretrained every year as thereare jobs. Many teachers,both at the end of theircareers and at the begin-ning, job share or stay onthe teacher on-call listsas substitutes. This is notso great for new teacherstrying to get a foot in thedoor some of them onlywork four hours a week inclassrooms.

    So if the province wantsto reduce its bills, why notoffer the senior teachersbuyouts? Offer a full yearssalary and benefits toteachers who are makingmore than $65,000. Someof them must be thinkingof early retirement. Nudgeem out at 60 instead of 65.

    Obviously, a buyoutlike this is an investment.Itll cost you money inyour first year.

    But this is the govern-ment were talking about,they borrow in bulk andthey have the lowest inter-est rates around. And aconservative back-of-the-

    envelope calculation sug-gests if you can convincejust 100 teachers making$65,000 or up to take thedeal, over five years theprovince saves more than$6 million.

    As I mentioned, it willgo at least partway to deal-ing with the vast numberof expensively educatedproto-teachers who arecurrently using their fouror five years of universityeducation to make nicelattes.

    JZ: Over the years, youve workedwith some of the biggest names in rockn roll, like Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton andDavid Gilmour. What was it like to beonstage with these artists you grew uplistening to?

    IM: It was amazing, but I neveractually worked with Eric Clapton I worked with Jeff on the gig thatJeff was doing with Eric. When EricClapton came onto the stage, I left Iwanted to stay so bad!

    Jeff is a good friend and a greatinfluence. We got on very welltogether and were both really firedup about music. Dave Gilmoursterrific, hes a really nice guy, andI loved performing with Lou Reed he was an amazing man and gaveme some really good tips.

    Ive been lucky to work with alot of great, great people, and some-times I have to pinch myself after-wards. At the same time, I like totake people as I meet them and just

    have a good time with music.

    JZ: You recently released your fourthstudio record, Tribal, in the U.K. Whatwas the recording process for it and howdoes its sound compared to your previ-ous work?

    IM: Every time before I write analbum, I get writers block before-hand and then I think, Oh no! Itsall over! [laughs] And then I startto write and its like the floodgatesopened and it slides out. Then Ihave way too many songs and I gothrough and I pick the ones thatseem to fit the best together as analbum. Im old-fashioned that way I like an album as opposed tosingles.

    On this album, I wanted to usemore of my punk influences and mycrazier rockabilly side. I love to messabout, and I know what sound Iwant and I try to get the best perfor-mance out of my band. Im so luckyto have such a great band, and I

    know when I hear the best takes outof them.

    JZ: What can we expect from yourlive show on the main stage at theBurnaby Blues & Roots Festival?

    IM: I hope the fans expect to havea good time and Ill pull out all thestops like I do at every gig I liketo give it my absolute best, as doesthe band. Well just rock the houseand hopefully have a good time andenjoy the music.

    JZ: That should just about do it!Anything else?

    IM: Well, my love of ElmoreJames lost me a boyfriend whenI was 15. You know that momentwhen you send each other a mix-tape? He sent me all the greatest hitsand I sent him an Elmore James oneand I never heard from him again.[laughs] Im glad I got rid of him, hehad bad taste in music.

  • which was recommended in 2010 and hasyet to be done, to which planning andbuilding director Lou Pelletier estimatedthe review would be done in about twoyears.

    Ward stated that by looking atthe application before designat-ing the medium-density portionfor high-density development, thecity was putting the cart beforethe horse.

    How many towers are wegoing to build before we evenapprove the density changesas a community? she asked.Burnabys getting a reputation;back in 2012, there was a Globe& Mail article that quotes anumber of developers prais-ing Burnaby for being faster andeasier than Vancouver, as far asapproving really large towers thatwe dont see anywhere else.

    McGowan seconded Wardsconcerns and asked if an amend-ment to the town centre planwould be required before thedevelopment could be approved.

    In an interview with the NOW,Ed Kozak, assistant director ofcurrent planning at the city, clari-fied that while the town centremap shows land designated formedium density on the site, the area hasbeen intended for high-density develop-ment for decades.

    Any designation is considered a guide-line it relies on an underlying zoning dis-trict to define it muchmore clearly, he said.

    The map that was referred to at the publichearing is a generalized land-use map forthe town centre. It was not the plan.

    Kozak noted that the Metrotown planfrom 1977 describes development along theBeresford corridor as transitioning to high

    density, so its not unusual forthe developer to request rezoningfrom RM3 (meant for multi-familyresidential, lowrise developments)to a high-density comprehensivedevelopment.

    In this case, (the plan) hap-pens to include a very long prop-erty that extends further to thesouth than, say, the Metro Placesite did. There was never an intentfor there to be a perfectly lineardemarcation between what is lowand highrise.

    Kozak also cleared up someconfusion regarding the place-ment of the towers on the site.While Pelletier noted at the publichearing that both buildings wouldfit in the high-density top half ofthe site, Kozak said the 26-storeybuilding would be in the medium-density portion, essentially creat-ing a transition from the existinglowrise buildings to the highrisesalong the corridor.

    This, being a very large site,generates a fair bit of residential

    square footage, he said. The intent herewas to orient the vast majority of that toBeresford(with a transition) to a muchlower tower on the southern portion on thesite, then ultimately to the lowrise multi-family thats there today.

    EVERYTHING YOUNEED TO ENJOY THEGREAT OUTDOORS

  • For four years the BurnabyVelodrome has been offeringaboriginal youth a place to socializeand exercise, all because one man found

    a way to forgetogether his pas-sion for cyclingand his ownaboriginal heri-tage.

    Since he was15 years old,Kelyn Akunahas been cycling

    both competitively and recreationally.The uprooted Hawaiian-American spentmost of his formative years competing incycling races around the world as part ofthe United States national team.

    Akuna eventually made his way northfor further training and foundhimself in Burnaby where, asthese things usually go, hemet a woman, fell in love anddecided to stay.

    Flash-forward a few years,Akuna is now the programcoordinator at the BurnabyVelodrome and founder ofthe Aboriginal Youth Cyclingprogram.

    The cycling program cameout of Akunas desire to pur-sue something that wouldappeal to both his passion forcycling and his appreciation for his ownaboriginal heritage.

    I was really passionate about thesetwo areas, and I was trying to find outways to combine them, and I approachedthe track with the idea and they werereally enthusiastic about the idea, herecalls.

    The velodrome jumped at the idea andput forward enough funding that therewas no cost to any of the youth participat-ing in fact, it continues to be free to thisday and, in 2010, some 50 youth turnedout for the inaugural session.

    It was really successful, especiallybecause it was completely new, he says.There was a lot of positive response.

    Akuna partnered with the Urban

    Native Youth Association, which helpedspread the word about his new pro-gram and offers transportation for kidsin the program coming from outside ofBurnaby.

    Today, the drop-in program runs everyFriday at 4:30 p.m. for both status andnon-status aboriginal youth between theages of 10 and 24. The program is open toall skill levels, but new riders are asked tocome out on the first Friday of the monthfor an introduction to the velodrometrack.

    While some participants have thrownthemselves into the competitive sport ofcycling one placed third in the provin-cial championships last year after onlyone year of riding Akuna says the truepurpose of the program isnt high-per-formance training but rather to get youth

    active and excited aboutcycling, both as a means ofexercise and transportation.

    Its also meant to bringabout some solidarity in thegroup, and (we) use the bikeas a vehicle for that, Akunaadds.

    The program is free for thefirst four sessions and afterthat Akuna says he is usu-ally able to find funding tosubsidize the cost for partici-pants who want to continue either through the Burnaby

    Velodrome or other community partners.In the last four years, the program

    has continued to grow and evolve butwhat pleases Akuna the most is the waythe program has influenced the BurnabyVelodrome community.

    (The program) is cultural in the sensethat were working with kids of aborigi-nal descent, but on the other hand, noteveryone at the track shares that samehistory and so theres this completely newperspective that other people get as well,and I find that the positive effect reallygoes both ways, he says.

    Any aboriginal youth interested in theprogram is asked to visit www.aboriginalyouthcycling.com for more information.

    Hospital stays a journey into the unknown

    Im writing this in myhotel room in the oldtown of Prague.In this ancient city of a

    hundred spires, Im sur-rounded by wonder and

    beauty, but in a place sodifferent from home, Imreminded that Im a travel-ler in a land that is strangeto me. Along with theadventure of new sights,sounds and experiences,comes a subtle discomfortwith the unfamiliar andthe potential for danger.

    It is not unlike theexperiences of my ownpatients, friends and fam-ily who have found themselves in another strangeplace the hospital.

    A big differencebetween travelling toanother country and find-ing yourself in a hospitalis the surprise and misad-venture that brings you tothe latter. Its like being arefugee fleeing from disas-ter rather than a vacationerto the happiest place onearth.

    As a patient, youmight feel like Dorothybeing swept to the Landof Oz, and I dont meanAustralia.

    You might end up inthe hospital for a proce-dure such as an operation,which many times can beplanned and expected.In this case, its almostlike a pre-booked holiday(perhaps with a very longwait), and the length ofyour stay is usually pre-dictable.

    Most patients, however,are unexpectedly admittedto the hospital in responseto an accident (e.g. a fallwith a fractured hip) or

    an illness (e.g. infection,stroke, heart attack orsymptoms of an as-yet-undiagnosed condition).

    The goal for mostpatients admitted to thehospital of course is health having undergone asuccessful operation, illu-minating investigations ortherapies that allow you toleave the hospital not onlystable but healthy or atleast healthier than whenyou came in.

    The not-so-secret secret

    is that hospitals can bedangerous places, andweve all heard stories ofpatients getting sicker dueto medical misadventure,mistakes that werentpicked up, unnecessarydelays and hospital-acquired infections.

    This is the reality whenyou gather many sick peo-ple in a large institutionwhere every patient comesin contact with numeroushealth-care workers.

    Yes, its true: Even bea-vers teach their little onesto cross the road safely.

    NOW reader ChrisParlow sent in photosof what appears to be amother beaver guidingher young across the road,using a marked crossingin South Burnaby, not farfrom the Fraser River.

    These rare never-before-seen photos revealproof that beavers dontjaywalk, Parlow wrote.Beaver tales have oftenbeen told about mommatraining her kits at a youngage to use crosswalks. Thisevidence clearly revealsthis is no longer just a talebut evidence such trainingoccurs.

    Do you have a fun sum-mer photo to share with

    NOW readers? Send us anemail, editorial@burnabynow.com, or share it on

    Fortunately, the vastmajority of patients dowell in the hospital and notonly survive but thrive.

    Since Hippocrates,the first rule of medicinehas been to do no harm.Hospitals and healthauthorities are activelydoing their best to reducepatient risks. Safety hasbeen part of the new cul-

    ture of health care.Though patients are not

    to blame when things gowrong in the hospital, Illoffer in my next columnsome key tips in being amore assertive patient oradvocate for a friend orfamily member.

    In fact, I could writea whole book or liketravel writer, Rick Steves,a whole series of books

    on hospitals around theworld; maybe the LonelyPatients Guides toSurviving Your MedicalAdventures.

HenryThompson, 88, is perform-ing at the Music in thePark series this weekend,organized by EPIC, theEdmonds residents group.The show starts at 6:30p.m. on Sunday, July 27,in the plaza behind theEdmonds CommunityCentre, at 7433 EdmondsSt. Its free, so bring ablanket and some picnictreats, sit back in the grassand enjoy the show.

    Jennifer: Tell me a little bitabout yourself.Henry: Im from India forstarters. Im 88.

    J: Youre quite the singer, Iunderstand.H: I did it as a volunteer inthe hospitals all aroundthe Lower Mainland.

    J: What got you interested insinging?H: I did it in my littlehometown in India. Therewere no singers there,and I was interested inplaying music, but I have

    no patience to play aninstrument. ... I was anapprentice on the railway,and I was able to learn thesongs. Having no knowl-edge of music, I just heardthe songs and the musicand the singers like Crosbyand Como and Nat KingCole and Frank Sinatraand Dean Martin. I usedto hear all the songs. Ofcourse I dont know music,but my sister put downall the music in shorthandand transferred it to run-ning hand and gave it tome. When the song cameover again, I just had thewords to follow the music.

    J: So you would sing the old,classic crooners, when youwere working on the railway?H: Yes, then they dubbedme as a crooner. BingCrosby was my favourite.

    J: Do you sing on your own,a cappella, or do you singwith a band?H: I used to sing with aband, then I came here toCanada, and I sang onceor twice with a band, atshows and things like that.

    J: For this weekend, what areyou planning to do?H: Ive got to sing onesong; Lindy (McQueen,from EPIC) told me Ivegot to sing her favouritesong.

    J: Whats that?H: (He starts humming tohimself to remember.) You

    Belong to Me.

    J: Can you sing a little bitof it for me? Just a couple oflines?H: See the pyramids alongthe Nile, watch the sunrisefrom a tropic isle...

    J: Oh my, you sound likeFrank Sinatra, thats lovely!H: And I do one of myfavourite songs that no onein Canada knows, I think.Its an old 1939 song byBerlin Irving. (Starts sing-ing.) I poured my heartinto a song, and when youhear it, please rememberfrom the start, you wontbe hearing just the wordsand tune of a song, youwill be listening to myheart.

    J: Thats lovely! (laughter)How did you get connected tothe Music in the Park series?How did you meet thesepeople?H: I saw it in the newspa-per.

    J: What would you like to sayto people coming out to theshow?H: People that say they cannot sing, they dont perse-vere. Most musicians, andIm not one because I cantread music, I just sing.

    (Postscript: While JenniferMoreau has no particu-lar plans to get married,Henry Thompson kindlyoffered to sing at herfuture wedding.)

    Building community: Burnaby resident Tessy Chalissery organized a blockparty, complete with live music, to help her neighbours get to know one another.

    Contributed photo/burnaby now

    Neighbours connectthrough block party

    When Burnaby resident TessyChalissery came across a VancouverFoundation report on community connec-tion and engagement, she was struck bythe loneliness a lot of people feel.

    The 2012 study found that one in four ofthe 3,481 people surveyed reported beingalone more often than they would like.The foundation also suggestedloneliness has negative conse-quences for communities.

    So Chalissery decidedto do something about it.She secured a VancouverFoundation small neighbour-hood grant for $500 throughthe Burnaby NeighbourhoodHouse and on July 19, shethrew a block party to help herneighbours get to know one another.

    It was great, she told the NOW. Ifeach block can do it, that will be great forthe community.

    Neighbours pitched in to helpChalissery, and she also rallied about 20sponsors, who donated food, drinks anddoor prizes. An estimated 150 people cameout for the Saturday potluck.

    The party was for residents of SpruceStreet, between MacDonald and Smithavenues, but folks showed up from the

    surrounding area, as well. There wasmusic, food and fun activities for the kids.Burnaby firefighters also made an appear-ance at the block party and brought a firetruck for the kids to explore. Block Watchvolunteers were on site, and the neigh-bours now have a new plan to beef up thecommunity safety program.

    But most importantly, people weremingling, chatting and getting to knowtheir neighbours.

    It was great. Everybodywas happy. Now they can seeeach other and who lives in theneighbourhood, Chalisserysaid, adding that the event wasmulti-generational and multi-cultural.

    Antonia Beck of the BurnabyNeighbourhood House saidcommunity building is whatthe small grants are about.

    I think the neighbourhood smallgrants is a great way of bringing neigh-bours together and really addressingthe Vancouver Foundation findings thatcame out in that a report, Beck said. Ifpeople know each other and feel morecomfortable in their neighbourhood, theyare going to look out for each other. Itincreases safety.

    The next round of applications for com-munity grants will be in spring 2015.

    Dear Tom and Ray:Today my question is

    about safety. My husband,who has not had an accidentin the 20 years Ive knownhim, drives in a way thatmakes me nervous.

    I feel like I am in a videogame when I sit in the frontseat with him. Images of cars,people, trees, etc., appear tofly in my face as he drives upto cars really quickly and thenaround them just as quickly.

    With great effort, I havestopped screaming in terrorand hiding my face in myhands when I ride with him,because honestly, he has neverhad an accident.Mostly, Itry to keep my eyes squeezedshut.

    However, sometimes I

    open them, and this is whenI notice that he does not holdthe steering wheel when hedrives. I told him I thoughtthat wasnt safe, but he saidhe has always done it thatway and it is fine. He agreedto consider stopping if I foundevidence that it is dangerous.But of course I could not, justas you cannot find evidencethat it is important to be con-scious while driving, becausethere are few statistics onthis.

    He does hold the steeringwheel sometimes. And some-times he will use his knee.Other times, he will lightlyrest a finger on the wheel tohelp guide the car. He hasalways loved you guys, andreads your column. Is thereanything you can do to help?We have two children, ages11 and 13, who ride in theback seat, and I am seriouslythinking of joining them. Ishe right, that all this is safe?

    MariaRAY: No hes a nut bag,Maria. And the fact thathe reads our column onlyconfirms that.

    TOM: Of course its notsafe to let go of the steer-ing wheel, or to drivewith your knees. Why doyou think you so rarelyhear driving instructorssay, Keep your knees at10 and 2 on the steeringwheel?RAY: The reason is thatstuff happens, and it hap-pens quickly. Youre driv-ing along, and a dog runsinto the road. Or a king-size Sealy Posturepedicmattress goes flying off theroof of the station wagonin front of you. Its in those

    situations when you needto change the directionof the car instantly thatyour hands are far better atmoving the steering wheelthan your knees are. Andtwo hands do a better jobthan one hand.TOM: Racing up to a carin front of him beforepassing it also is highlydumb for the same rea-son. Youre going 70 or 80m.p.h., and the car in frontof you is going 15 or 20m.p.h. slower than that. Ifthat car should suddenlystop, because a car in front

    of him stops, or a truckloses a tire, theres no wayHubby will be able to stopin time.RAY: Can he get awaywith driving like this forsome period of time with-out having an accident?Obviously, he has. But atsome point, his luck willrun out.TOM: You say he hasnthad an accident in 20years. I wonder how manyHoly crow! momentshes had with close calls.Or how many accidents ornear-accidents hes caused

    by driving so aggressively.RAY: So heres the deal:You tell him that until heshapes up and drives moresafely, you and the kidswill be riding in the back.And wearing crash helmetsand football pads.TOM: And screaming interror. Dont forget thescreaming in terror, Maria.That will provide somecrucial negative reinforce-ment here.RAY: I hope it works,Maria. If not, stop drivingwith him, and take out agood life-insurance policy.

    Hubbys hands-free driving definitely not safe

    Late summer is time for gardeners to relax

    In August, flower gar-deners reap rewardsfrom the hard work theydid in spring and can relaxknowing that most of theornamental garden workcan be left until weathercools in September.

    Even dead-headingflowers is an option. Peoplewho want a second crop ofshrub and perennial flow-

    ers will get busy shearingback roses, buddleia, phlox-es, lavenders, globe thistles,anchusa, penstemons,yarrows and toadflaxes.But people who hope forrose hips or seed for futureplanting dont even have todo that.

    In August, petuniasoften start to grow longand lanky. Its fine to short-en them. Theyll be patheticstumps at first, but beforelong theyll be shootingback, budding and flower-ing.

    Soon autumn crocus(Colchicum) bulbs will bein nurseries. These arentcheap, but theyre suchgood value because theyre

    pest-free and spread andflower reliably in sun withvery large pink-purple cro-cus-type blooms.

    Gardeners who keeptheir garden mulched canrelax the frequency ofwatering except for mois-ture-loving plants such ashellebores or mints. Theresno problem either in aban-doning lawn watering fora couple of months. Lawnsgreen up fast when rainarrives.

    Any water saved fromthe lawn will be neededin the vegetable gardenbecause moisture is neededto help beans, zucchinis,squash and tomatoes rootand leafy crops get larger.

    Any crop thats partly self-pollinated, such as beans,will also benefit from aswoosh of the hose over theplants to get their pollenmoving around.

    Tomatoes grown undercover also need a goodshake for pollination. Theseare greedy feeders andmoisture lovers. So aresquash. Bush squash needvery rich nourishment,especially if theyre in a bigcontainer fish fertilizer,sea soil or a balanced (allnumbers the same) organicfertilizer are all suitable.

    Garlic doesnt needwatering now, nor do shal-lots because both are inthe run-up to harvesting.

    August is good timing toharvest these, especiallybefore the stems dry anddisappear. Invisible stemsmean a few root clustersalso vanish. In spring theyreappear in inconvenientplaces.

    With some crops, har-vesting fits nicely withcomposting unusable plantbits. Every time a broadbean plant is stripped ofits last beans, its easy topull the plant and pile itready for compost. If yourearmed with a pruner, thelast crop of summer rasp-berries can dovetail withcutting fruited stems.

    Its not too late to sowseeds of a few things: aru-

    gula and corn salad areespecially useful becausethey mature very fast andare fairly slug resistant.Green onions, radishesand spinach can also besown now. My father, whogardened in South Surrey,used to plant peas in thelast two weeks of July,calling it his silly cropbecause whether it evermatured was always dicey.But planting pod pea seedgives you a harvest a weekearlier than shelling peasdo.

    Anne Marrison is happyto answer garden questions.Send them to her at amarrison@shaw.ca. It helps if youadd your city or region.

    Champion itching for a fightEvelynCaladoholds the

    B.C., Western Canadianand Canadian nationalGolden Gloves womenssuper flyweight boxingtitle belts, but has yet toeven raise a glove.

    The 24-year-old NorthBurnaby fighter has wonall three womens 48-kilogram boxing titles bywalkover, which meansshe has been unchallengedin the championship bouts.But Calado, nicknamedLil evl, by her handlerswants all that to change.

    Next week, Caladotravels to Kansas City inthe hopes of getting insome real competitionat the Ringside WorldChampionships, whichstart on Monday.

    You cant train thatconsistently and at thathigh level and not com-pete, she said. Rightnow, its all about theexperience. Its all aboutme getting the ring timeI want and improving. Iwant to be the Canadianchampion and get on thenational team, but I wantto fight to get there.

    Calado lives in Burnabyand trains with veter-an Scotty Jackson at theQueensborough BoxingClub in Queens Park.

    A former roommatetook her to an all-wom-ens boxing class in EastVancouver five years agoand Calados been pursu-ing the sweet scienceever since.

    I fell in love with it. Ihad never done anything

    that was so physicallydemanding, said Calado,who stands 5-1 and ashade over 100 pounds.

    A year later, the formerBCIT student stepped intothe ring for her first officialfight in an exhibition boutagainst the reigning pro-vincial champion.

    Calado has had approx-

    imately 10 fights, mostlyexhibition bouts, and allagainst boxers bigger andheavier than herself. Infact, she has never foughtanyone from her ownweight class yet.

    That is why travellingto Kansas City for the larg-est amateur boxing tour-nament in the world is so

    important to her.I want to gauge where

    Im at at 106 (pounds),Calado said. Thats whyits so important to gothere and find someoneto fight.

    With a record of 2-4,she is hardly raising anyeyebrows, but she believesin her handlers who like

    her technical ability andhard punch.

    I know that poundfor pound I hit extremelyhard. You have to be con-fident in this sport. Imconfident in my skills thatI wont get hit. Ive neverbeen hurt and never been

    knocked down.Calado uses her quick footwork, a per-

    sistent jab and combinations to overpowerher opponents.

    But finding the right opponent is cost-ing the student/athlete more money thananticipated.

    Calado shelled out $1,300 from her ownpocket to go to this years Golden Gloves.She expects her bill in Kansas City willmatch that.

    Calado works out anywhere from sixto 10 times per week, combining morningstrength or cardio workouts with after-noon sparring sessions. When shes inschool, Calado maintains a 3.90 grade

    point average.Its a full-time job, she said. I work

    very hard at what I do. I want to getenough credits to get into kinesiology inUBC.

    But first, preparations for BoxingCanada gold at the national champion-ships in Toronto await.

    Calado is one of three Queensboroughboxers who are looking forward to theCanadian championships at the end ofOctober. Fellow clubmates River Tuckerand Darcy Hinds are the others.
