    After paying the provincial governmentalmost $2 million since 2010 to offset itscarbon emissions, Simon Fraser Universitywill get back $195,000 this year to make itsBurnaby campus more energy-efficient.

    The funds were announced this monthin a Ministry of Advanced Education pressrelease that said the government will payB.C. colleges and universities $3.8 millionunder its Carbon Neutral Capital Program

    this year for projects that reduce energycosts, demonstrate clean technology andlower carbon emissions.

    About $170,000 has been earmarked forSFU for five new high-efficiency boilersthat will save the university a combined$19,900 a year on energy costs and cut CO2emissions by just over 100 tonnes.

    Another $25,000 will go toward a$450,000 project to upgrade the educationbuilding envelope work that will savethe university $3,240 per year on energycosts and reduce CO2 emissions by 18

    tonnes.The funds hardly compare to the $2

    million SFU has paid in carbon offsetssince 2010, when the government in abid to become carbon neutral decided allpublic sector institutions would have tostart paying $25 a tonne for their annualCO2 emissions.

    (That money was to be pooled by theoft criticized Pacific Carbon Trust aCrown corporation folded into the envi-ronment ministry last year and used toinvest in green programs that help offset

    pollution.)Despite the relatively small size of

    the SFU grant announced Wednesday,SFU development sustainability managerWendy Lee is happy the university isgetting any money at all to help make itsfacilities more energy-efficient.

    What they are doing is at least creatinga little bit of program funding, she toldthe NOW. Weve been lobbying hard forsomething, just in terms of, like, you cantcontinue to punish us without creating

    The provincial NDPannounced its new shadowcabinet last Wednesday,and two Burnaby MLAshave new posts.

    alism.Corrigan welcomed the

    post and promptly took aswipe at the Liberals.

    Colleges and univer-sities have faced repeatedcuts since the Liberals

    came to power, Corrigansaid in a media release.Meanwhile, student debtcontinues to be the high-est in Canada. These areserious challenges facing

    todays students, and wemust do better to providethe best opportunities forthem.

    Prior to Wednesdaysannouncement, Corrigan

    held the justice critic post,while Shin was deputycritic for small business,tourism, arts and culture.Shin will now be workingalongside Bruce Ralston,

    the NDPs main critic fortrade, immigration andmulticulturalism, as well asnatural gas development.Burnaby-Edmonds MLARaj Chouhan holds the

    assistant deputy speakerpost, and as such is pre-cluded from holding ashadow cabinet post.

    some means for us to andthe shortage has alwaysbeen about capital toaccess those energy-effi-ciency opportunities.

    Before March of thisyear, universities andhealth authorities paid car-bon offsets but did not, likeschool districts, receive anyfunding for energy-effi-ciency upgrades.

    Lee said SFU has man-aged to cut its CO2 emis-sions by about 2,500 tonnesper year since 2007 throughenergy management andcommunityawarenesscam-paigns, but there are limitsto such initiatives, especial-ly at the universitys olderBurnaby campus.

    So Lee welcomed theCarbon Neutral Capitalmoney, but she and hercounterparts on the CarbonNeutral Higher EducationCommittee would like tosee the government explorea revolving-fund model, inwhich government wouldprovide seedmoney to starta fundand then, as emissionreductions occurred, uni-versities (and other publicinstitutions) would repaythe fund out of energy sav-ings, making the programself-sustaining.

    Rather than just pay-ing it out and it just disap-pears, Lee said.

    Lee said SFU doesntoppose the ultimate goalsof the carbon neutral gov-ernment program.

    It aligns with ourgoals, she said, so its notthat were trying to fightagainst it. It really is justthe fact that unless youreactually creating a meansto get there, its just penal-izing without assisting us.

    Not a week goes by, itseems, that doesnt seePremier Christy Clarktalk, yet again, about the vastriches that lay in B.C.s pathif only a liquefied natural gasindustry gets off the ground inthis province.

    Its a theme that began beforethe last election, and one thathelped carry her to a surprisingvictory with the voters. Peopleseem to at least want to believethe fairy tale-like talk about bil-lions of dollars coming our way,to help eliminate the provincialdebt and even the sales tax.

    But for all the time the pre-mier spends talking about thissubject, more evidence (or atleast information) turns up thatreminds us all about just what ashaky roll of the dice the wholeLNG gambit may prove to be.

    Clark is arguing that theglut of natural gas on NorthAmerican markets has kept theprice low, and therefore B.C.must look to other markets tomake money. China, Korea andJapan all loom as potential cus-tomers of B.C.s LNG.

    To be fair, she has a pointhere. The steady decline in theprice of natural gas in NorthAmerica has meant dwindlingrevenues to the provincial treas-ury arising from royalties on gassales, and this has been going onfor several years now.

    Annual natural gas royaltyrevenues for the B.C. govern-ment peaked in 2005/06, atalmost a whopping $2 billion.Back then, the price was a lofty$7.27 per gigajoule, but thingshave gone downhill ever since,as the shale gas revolution in theUnited States exploded.

    The revenues bottomed out ata measly $169 million in 2012/13and are expected to hit nearlya half billion dollars or so thisyear, but the days of royaltiesgenerating more than a billiondollars a year appear over.

    And even the current esti-mate for this years revenuesmay be in jeopardy of being toohigh. Prices are lagging behindpredictions of a few months ago,and even a 50-cent change in theprice from what was predictedequals about $140 million in lostrevenue.

    All of this volatility under-scores the premiers argument tofind new markets. But while theprice for LNG remains high inAsia, who is to say those priceswill remain high when and if aB.C.-based LNG plant is up andrunning a few years from now?

    Use your head and keep your home safeYou go away for a couple of weeks of

    rest and relaxation. You return to findyour home has been burgled.

    Thats one surefire way tokill the post-vacation buzzpretty much instantly.

    So, really, why open your-self up to the risk?

    There are a few simple precautionswe should all take this summer toavoid becoming another summer crimestatistic. Some of them are so simplethat surely we shouldnt even need to

    remind you about them things likemaking sure your doors and windowsare locked, securing important papers

    and valuables in a small safe,and having a neighbour collectnewspapers and flyers so theydont pile up on your doorstep.

    (Better yet, just call your friendly neigh-bourhood newspaper office and canceldelivery for a couple of weeks.)

    But there are also some other, perhapsless obvious, steps to take if you want tokeep your home safe and those steps

    involve social media.Sure, we know you want to tell all

    your friends about your impendingAfrican safari or retreat to Bora-Bora.But stop and think a moment before youpost the good news on Facebook doyou really want everyone to know?

    Sure, you trust your friends. But doyour privacy settings allow their friendsto see your posts? Or worse yet, theworld at large?

    Before you post anything on socialmedia about going away and leaving

    your home unoccupied, it would be wiseto double-check your privacy settings and even wiser to post nothing at alluntil youre back home.

    Then you can post your tanned andsmiling selfie and gloat all you wantabout your fantastic vacation withoutworrying that youve just invited thievesover to play.

    So be smart this summer.Just a few simple precautions could

    prevent you from becoming another sadstatistic.

    A pipe dreamfull of problems?

    Corrigans position is right onDear Editor:

    I am surprised to read some letter writers whosupported the expansion of the Kinder Morganand criticized Mayor Corrigans oppositions to thisproject.

    I have always been a conservative on politicalissues, and a supporter of the big corporations.However, on the issues of the oil and gas, I for thefirst time will have to agree with the First Nationsand the environmentalists.

    1) These natural resources are non-renewable.We therefore should not export them but conservethem for our future generations.

    Extractions of these resources should be for the

    benefits of all Canadians (west to east) so we mayenjoy cheaper gas.

    2) There are beautiful housings surrounding thetank farms, Forest Grove, Forest Hill and GlennAbbey residential areas. These are some of the bestresidential areas in Burnaby.

    Any disasters will certainly endanger the livesand properties of the people living in those areas.

    One of your readers said that Mayor Corrigan islosing millions of benefits by rejecting the project.In my estimates, those millions can hardly compen-sate the property owners along the pipelines andtank farms as their property will be devalued andhave to live in constant worry of any incident/acci-dent/natural disaster (earthquake).

    Tories cant be trusted nowDear Editor:

    Both Patrick Keogh and Ziggy Eckardtmake it sound as if its a given that StephenHarpers Reformers are going to be in aposition to approve anything after the2015 election.

    I was a supporter of the Conservativebrand my whole adult life, but at age 67,and after what our self-appointed dictator(Stephen Harper) has done to Canada andto Canadians in general since 2011, I dontfeel I can support the Conservatives everagain, and Im sure I am not alone, sincepoll after poll suggests the same thing.

    Canadians, including myself, made thebiggest mistake in the history of Canadaby turning Canada over to a corporatelyowned shill who could care less aboutCanadians and Canadian workers.

    Harper was elected to his faux-majoritywith only 39.6 per cent of the total votes

    cast in the last election, and this is whereour electoral system in badly broken, thatit would allow that to happen.

    If Canadians are dumb enough to voteConservative (Reform) in the next election,we can kiss what is left of Canada good-bye, because he will sell off what is left toforeign entities because of Stephen Harperand his corporate agenda.

    My thinking is that if the Conservativesare re-elected, and I hope they are not, itwill not be with a majority, and at thatpoint Harper will exit, since he will no lon-ger have the ability to dictate, and that willkill his narcissistic personality. (What, thepeople dont love me?)

    Tell you what, I have never in my lifeever voted Liberal federally, but in thenext federal election, I am voting for JustinTrudeaus Liberals. Why? Simply becausethey are not Stephen Harper or any of hissleazy trained seals, who sit up and nodyes, whenever they are told to do so.

    The only Conservative that had thegumption to say no to Harper was BrentRathgeber, and I admire him for standingup to this self-appointed dictator.

    When the Tea Party Republicans arepraising Harper and company, we shouldall be very worried.

    Remember, Stephen Harper does notcare about individual Canadians, becausehe is far too busy satisfying the transna-tional corporations who own him.

    Pipeline is bad for city

    Industry: A troubled LNG future?China recently signed a

    mammoth long-range dealwith Russia for naturalgas, and there are reportsthe price included in it ismuch lower than currentprices.

    SFU professor andenergy expert MarkJaccard has pointed outthat the Asia market canbecome just as volatile and cheaper over time asthe North American one. Ifthe Asian market price forLNG drops significantly,that alone could threatenthe economic models ofprivate companies contem-plating building those pro-posed LNG plants in northwest B.C.

    Another potential prob-lem: several recent mediareports have said a majorNew York hedge fund hasbought a $1 billion stakein Apache, one of the

    companies involved in aproposed LNG project inKitimat, and is urging thecompany to get out of theproject.

    According to Bloom-berg and the Wall StreetJournal, the hedge fundmanagers apparently thinkthe Kitimat project is adrain on Apaches capital,and any potential payoff isstill many years down theroad.

    Then there is theKitimat air shed problem.Proposed LNG plantswould be clustered in atight valley with the exist-ing Rio Tinto smelter andperhaps even an oil refin-ery, which all adds up toa lot of emissions into theair over a relatively smallarea. The governmentinsists the report it recentlycommissioned to look intothe problem concluded upto four LNG plants could

    operate without damagingthe health of residents, ifproper measures weretaken.

    But Green Party MLAAndrew Weaver was quickto point out one of thoserecommended measuresis to operate the LNGplants with electricity andnot natural gas, which issomething the premier hasruled out.

    Finally, the recentlandmark Supreme Courtof Canada decision onaboriginal title may throwyet another wrench intoplans to lay more pipelinesto carry LNG to thoseenvisioned plants.

    Put it all together,and it would appear thepremiers lofty dreams ofLNG riches may still bestuck in the proverbialpipe for a while yet.

    It was an eventful second quarter forfirefighters in Burnaby.

    According to the fire report for April,May and June, the department respond-ed to about 200 more calls compared toJanuary, February and March of this year.

    The rise in incidents is due to an increasein every type of call, including vehiclefires, false alarms, rubbish and bush fires,accidental alarms, motor vehicle incidents,medical emergencies and public servicecalls, according to the fire report presentedto council at its July 21 meeting.

    The total number of incidents jumpedfrom 3,380 to 3,579 and also included aslight rise in building fires from 104 to116 during the second quarter of this year,added the report.

    Readers may recall three notable firesin the city this past quarter, the first inthe backyard of a home in the 6000 blockof 12th Avenue, the second in a highriseapartment building on Kingsway and thethird in a low-rise on Augusta Avenue.

    On May 14, Sid Bottomley and hisfriends and family were gathered in theirbackyard toasting Bottomleys move toAlberta when his father poured an acceler-ant on the fire. As the NOW reported, theaccelerant caused the fire to explode, burn-ing Bottomleys father and three guests.

    Bottomleys father and one guest sus-tained second-degree burnswhile the othertwo guests suffered third-degree burns.

    Burnaby assistant fire chief Lane

    Zimmerman confirmed with the NOWthat the explosion was caused by pouringaccelerant on to the fire.

    In the case of the apartment fire at 7272Kingsway on May 27, firefighters evacu-ated the entire building as they searchedfor the cause of the blaze, which wascontained to one unit on the 12th floor.Investigators determined the fire, whichdestroyed the entire 12th-floor unit, wasthe result of an old electrical outlet over-loaded with a power bar and too manyextension cords, acting Capt. Jeff Wilsontold the NOW at the time.

    Less than a month later, on June 17, fire-fighters were on scene of a blaze at a three-storey apartment building on AugustaAvenue.

    Witnesses told the NOW that two roof-ers had been applying tar to the roof of theapartment building when the tar caughtfire.

    AUGUST 30 & 31

  • Vancouver wedding photographerJourdan Tymkow was devastated Sundaynight to discover her laptop with thou-sands of her clients wedding photos hadbeen stolen while she was shooting anoth-er wedding, at Burnaby Lake RowingPavilion.

    About 2,000 of the photos were fromtwo weddings Tymkow shot over the lasttwo weeks and they werentbacked up.

    Tymkow, 23, left her back-pack containing her MacBookwith the photos on it in theback of the silver Toyota shewas travelling in, which wasparked in the pavilion park-ing lot.

    She went into the receptionat 6:30 p.m. and came back outat 7:30 p.m. to get a lens fromthe backpack and nothing was amiss, shesaid, though she saw many people millingabout the parking lot who didnt appearto be part of the wedding. When she cameout for the final time at 10:30 p.m. the rearwindow of the Toyota had been smashedand the backpack was gone.

    I totally had a breakdown, she saidMonday, her voice breaking with emo-tion. I have been pretty much crying eversince.

    She immediately reported the theft tothe Burnaby RCMP who told her to checklocal pawnshops and Craigslist to see if thebag and computer shows up.

    While the theft means a loss of thou-sands of dollars for Tymkow, it is thethought of the people who will be impact-ed by the loss of the photos that makes her

    most upset.There was hundreds of people at the

    weddings, like family and friends andall the photos of them with the bride andgroom and the bride and groom them-selves, she said.

    Tymkow said she usually backs up herphotos right away but didnt the last twotimes. The last wedding took place at acampsite, so she wasnt able to.

    Just the worst timing, she said.So far, she hasnt alerted the two brides

    of the news.She said she is hoping the

    computer will be recoveredquickly so she can pass on thephotos to the newlyweds with-out them having to go throughthe stress of the loss.

    If the photos arent found,she will contact the couplesnext week.

    This is her first season as awedding photographer.

    It is also the first time she has ever hadanything stolen.

    I dont understand stealing somethingthat is of no value to someone else, shesaid.

    She said if the thief returns the comput-er to her there will be no questions asked.

    I would be ecstatic if they came for-ward, she said.

    Tymkow is asking anyone who findsher older black Herschel backpack, withsome exercise clothing and a white 2005MacBook inside to contact her by phone at778-251-8445.

    She is offering a $500 reward for thereturn of the photos.

    Anyone with information can also con-tact the Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.

  • The NOW caught up with CarolineBallhorn, who runs the Tin CanStudio with Jenny Lee Craig. Thetwo will have their mobile arts spacestationed at Burnabys Deer Lake thissummer, hosting a series of free art work-shops.

    Question: Can you tell me a bit aboutyou and your partner?

    Answer: Im an artist and creativefacilitator with a background in print-making, illustration and design. I loveworking with textiles, paper, thread and

    ink. Im interestedin collaborationand creativity andits relationship tocommunity build-ing.

    Jenny has adiverse inter-disciplinarybackground thatdraws from craft,performance and

    community engagement. We met ona road trip to Portland in 2010, and I hadjust launched Tin Can Studio with mycollaborator Brodie Kitchen. Jenny and Ihit it off, and when Brodie decided to stepaway from the project, she came on toreplace him.

    Q: How does the Tin Can Studio work?A: Tin Can Studio is a multi-purpose

    mobile project space housed in a con-verted vintage 18-foot Streamline trailer.Because its mobile, we can set up andrun creative interventions and happen-ings almost anywhere, which is a big partof our project.

    Q: Where did you get the idea?A: I was thinking a lot about the

    shrinking space for creative production inVancouver. When I met my original col-laborator, artist/designer Brodie Kitchen,the idea took shape and we began to

    work towards creating a project thatwould be able to exist in the in-between,a flexible space that we could transport asneeded.

    Q: What kinds of workshops do yourun out of the studio?

    A: First, as artists, we use the spaceas a mobile studio and hub for participa-tory projects. Its been a bit of an incuba-tor/pop-up space for us and other artiststhat weve worked with in the sensethat weve been able to try out and testsome of our ideas and see how the publicresponds. Second, as creative facilita-tors were really interested in skill sharingand situations that connect people. Weoffer a wide range of art and craft-basedworkshops, from printmaking, weaving,drawing, bookbinding, embroidery, ter-rarium building, and more.

    Finally, we can be hired for specialevents to host any one of these workshops

    for a specific group, or create customactivities and installations. Weve donesome fun projects for a wide range ofclients from hosting guests for a sit-downmeal, to providing a creative activity sta-tion. Weve even transformed the spaceinto a mobile tiki bar with a Tom Selleckshrine!

    Q: Where did you find the vintagetrailer?

    A: We actually found the trailer onCraigslist! In 2009 when Brodie (my pre-vious collaborator) and I were searchingfor the right vessel for our idea, we cameacross the posting and knew right away itwas the right one. A few emails later wefound ourselves driving up to Whistler topick it up.

    Q: What was the most memorableexperience youve had working with thestudio?

    A: To be honest my favourite projectwas one of the simplest a neighbour-hood open art studio on my street. It wasamazing to actually meet and becomefriends with the people that live rightaround me, and somehow having thisneutral space between our homes waswhat we needed to make that connection.We ended up creating a show together ofdrawings inspired by bicycles and mon-sters, which was pretty amazing.

    Q: What do you love most about run-ning this studio?

    A: I love watching people get excitedabout what theyre making. I also enjoyseeing people meet each other for the firsttime, usually through the shared experi-ence of learning something new.

    For the full summer schedule of thestudios workshops at Deer Lake Park, go towww.tincanstudio.org.

  • Hometownboy:

    Born-and-raised Burnaby

    residentSteve Kozak

    has beenperformingthe blues formore than 30years, but thissummer is hisfirst time on

    the main stageof the BurnabyBlues & RootsFestival. Kozakis kicking offthe mainstageshow with aset startingat 1:05 p.m.

    Check out page24 for the full

    stage schedule.

    Steve Kozak has performed his style ofupbeat, foot-tapping blues for 30-some yearsthroughout B.C.

    Hes toured just about every blues festivalin Western Canada except the one in his ownbackyard. Now, Kozak is finally getting hischance to play at the 15th annual BurnabyBlues & Roots Festival.

    Im really glad that theyve invited aBurnaby boy to be part of it, said Kozakwith a chuckle. Ive been watching it sinceits inception, and its one Ive always wantedto do.

    In previous years, they had BurnabyBlues Week and they had bands playing atlocal pubs leading up to it I got to do thatfor a few years, but to get to be on the mainstage this year is a real thrill for me.

    The lifelong Burnaby resident was raisedon blues, hearing classic tunes as well asblues-inspired rock n roll. It wasnt longbefore he got his own guitar and startedplaying in high school.

    My mom and her friends listened tosome blues stuff, and I had some older cous-ins that did. That kind of got me exposed toit early on, he said. Thats what I took aliking to, and I started playing that music.

    Kozaks first taste of the genre came frommusicians like blues rocker Johnny Winter,English hard rock quartet Led Zeppelin andearly material from Fleetwood Mac.

    Id hear some of those songs that wereon the more bluesy side and really liked that

    stuff, he said. Then I started to delve intoit a bit more and discovered Muddy Watersand Willie Dixon the guys that actuallywrote those songs.

    In 1977, Kozak had the fortune to meetWaters after a performance by the legendaryblues man in North Vancouver, around thetime Kozak started playing guitar.

    He said, Theres not enough young guysplaying blues anymore, so you keep at it. Itllbe hard, but just keep chipping away. I sortof made a promise to myself and to him atthat time, he recalled with a chuckle.

    That promise has led to more than threedecades onstage, several albums and somenational recognition for his music.

    In 2013, the Toronto Blues Societyawarded me New Artist of the Year it tookme 30 years to become new again, he saidwith a laugh. But that was great, it wasreally an honour.

    But perhaps the biggest honour for Kozakis to appear on stage right here in Burnaby.

    Kozak credits the longevity of theBurnaby festival to the range of people whocome out to Deer Lake Park year after year.

    Generally, the blues crowd is more of amiddle-aged crowd, but I think it appeals toa wide variety of people, he said. It wouldbe nice to see more younger people gettinginto it, and thats the great thing about afestival like this it gives exposure to morepeople.

    Big SugarMain Stage 8:30-10:00pm

    Led by founding memberGordie Johnson, Big Sugar isrenowned for their thunderinglive performances and hasacquired a faithful fan baseacross Canada. Johnson is joinedby Kelly Mr Chill Hoppeon harmonica and saxophone,Garry Lowe on bass, StephaneBeaudin on drums, and DJFriendlyness on keyboards.Together, the band kicks out aspecial blend of old school R & Bcombined with reggae and slightcountry twang.

    Five Hundred Pounds, released in 1993, helped consolidate Big Sugars reputation as anoutstanding live band, selling over 10,000 copies on the strength of their tour alone with littleother publicity.

    Unrestricted liquor licences may bebrand new to most outdoor, all-agesconcerts in B.C., but theyre businessas usual for the Burnaby Blues & RootsFestival.

    Recent changes to provincial liquorlaws have allowed gated, all-ages musicfestivals to offer alcohol anywhere onsite,rather than in a fenced area.

    But for the 15th annual Deer LakePark show, serving liquor anywhere onthe grounds wont be an experiment.

    For the last four or five years, wevekind of been a test for the B.C. LiquorBoard, said Jared Bowles of the ShadboltCentre for the Arts. We havent had aphysical beer garden the entire parkhas always been licensed.

    (Fans) can go get a beer, a glass ofwine, a cider, and then take it back intothe park and hang out with their friendsand family.

    To avoid serving alcohol to minors,patrons are IDd and given wristbandsat the beer service area. From there, theycan take their purchases from the top ofthe park to the front row.

    You dont have to spend the day inthe back corner of the park while yourfriends are out in the sun. You can grabyour cocktail and join the fun.

    The new liquor laws also allow fes-tivals to serve mixed drinks, though

    Bowles said the blues fest will stick to itstraditional selection of alcohol.

    Because its a new offering, weregoing to check out the demand a littlebit, he said. Were going to continue tooffer beer, cider, wine and sangria, whichwas something new that we offered lastyear.

    If our guests have feedback andtheyre asking for (mixed drinks), thatssomething well definitely look at for2015.

    In the years the festival has operatedwithout a fenced beer garden, Bowlessaid they havent had to make changesto security, and they dont anticipate anyproblems this year.

    Our guests that come are just thereto enjoy the show, he said. In the timethat Ive been here, we havent had anyproblems at all, really. Were going tocontinue as status quo.

    With the change in legislation, itshows that what weve been doing forthe last couple years has been workingand the government sees no issues withexpanding this to other festivals.

    Festival-goers should note that alco-holic beverages can not be brought on tothe festival grounds, and large coolers larger than 22 by 15 by 15 inches arealso not permitted on site.

    Fun at the festival: If all that dancing has you working up a thirst, never fear.Youll be able to enjoy beer, cider, wine and sangria with your music at this yearsfestival.

    If Mother Nature smiles on the festivalthis year as she has for the past few fes-tivals then youre going to want water.

    Never fear, it will be readily availableon festival day.

    Festival-goers can bring their owncommercially sealed plastic bottles of

    water, as well as refillable water bottles tofill on site.

    However, those attending the festivalshould note that no glass containers orcans are allowed, and no alcoholic bever-ages can be brought from outside (seestory above for details).

  • If youre admitted to ahospital, you may loseyour sense of controlover your own health care.

    Youre expected towear a gown instead ofyour own clothes. Manypeople pop into your roomunannounced, and theywrite notes in a chart thatyou cant see. You may begiven medications but notknow what they are for,and sometimes, you maynot know who is makingdecisions for you.

    Yet autonomy is a cor-nerstone of medical ethics.

    Capable patients mustbe sufficiently informedin order to make the bestdecisions for their owncare.

    When you visit a physi-cian, nothing is done with-out your consent. Afterlistening to your concerns,asking more questions andperforming an examina-tion, the physician willoffer a working diagnosisand suggest some optionsfor investigation or treat-ment.

    In order to makeinformed decisions, youneed four key pieces ofinformation: (1) the pur-pose or reason for the treat-ment or investigation, (2)the common side effectsor risks, (3) the serious,including life-threatening,side effects or risks, and(4) alternatives to the pro-posed treatment or investi-

    gation.Here are three keys to

    improving your hospitalexperience.

    1. Stay in control. If youare capable of understand-ing your situation andtreatment options, youshould continue to makeimportant decisions aboutyour care in the hospital.Ask the four key questionsfor any proposed treatmentor investigation.

    Ideally, you shouldexpress your wishes beforeyou find yourself in thehospital. Consider writ-ing an advanced medicaldirective. If you becomeill or incapacitated, whattypes of treatment wouldyou want? If you were nolonger capable of makingyour own decisions, whomwould you entrust to makedecisions on your behalf?Discussing these issues

    ahead of time will makethings easier for your fam-ily and will make it morelikely that your wishes willbe respected.

    2. Know the team. Thereare so many people work-ing in the hospital thatmany patients dont knowwho is who. It doesnthelp that many health-careworkers wear surgicalscrubs (or greens) andwhite lab coats.

    What could be easierthan getting up and chang-ing from comfy pink sleep-ing pajamas to comfy greenpyjamas? If we all did this,no one would buy pyjamajeans.

    You could try to readthe nametags, but if yourenot sure, dont be shy. Askfor each persons name andtheir role (i.e. nurse, respi-ratory technician, pharma-cist, dietician or doctor).

    If its a doctor, what istheir specialty (i.e. internalmedicine, hospitalist orsurgeon)?

    Most importantly, youneed to know who is theattending physician ormost responsible physi-cian. This is the physicianwho is directing your carethroughout your hospitalstay. It is possible that thismight change from day today, which, of course, isless than ideal.

    3. Set up a channelof communication withyour attending physician.Some hospitals have whiteboards in every patientsroom indicating the planor schedule of tests or pro-cedures, the results of testsand the expected length ofthe hospital stay.

    If this isnt the case, youshould have a large pad ofpaper at your bedside so

    that this information couldbe written down for you.You should prepare yourown list of questions foryour doctor. Try to find outwhen that doctor is expect-ed. Like the traveller forc-ing himself to stay awakeon the plane so he wontmiss his meal, patientsdread falling asleep andmissing the doctor duringdaily rounds.

    Im hoping you wontfind yourself or your lovedones in the hospital anytime soon, but if you do,follow these three steps tomaintain control of yourcare.

    A large core group of theBurnaby midget lacrosse teamended theirminor lacrosse careersas winners.

    The Burnaby Lakers defeatedtheir league nemesis Vancouver6-5 in the gold-medal final atthe B.C. Lacrosse provincial Bchampionships at the RodBrindAmour Arena in CampbellRiver on Sunday.

    Tied 4-4 late in the game,Burnabys Mack Burns scored thegame-winning goal with 1:48 lefton the clock.

    Burns, who was later namedthe game and overall provincialtournament MVP in the B divi-sion, scored the gold-medal win-ner with a diving shot into thecrease.

    It was a really tight game,said Lakers head coach JamesLego. Actually, (Vancouver) beatus every single time we played in

    the regular season.But at the provincials, after

    three straight losses to Vancouverin league play, it was Burnabystime to shine.

    The Lakers opened with an8-3 win over Campbell River,but later lost 5-4 in overtime toCoquitlam on July 25.

    On Saturday, Burnaby gotback on the win-wagon, downingQuesnel 10-3 and Prince George10-5 to earn a berth into the gold-medal final.

    BurnabygoalieNickHamilton,a pickup fromSurrey at the begin-ning of the season, was namedthe Lakers game MVP againstQuesnel and the teams Fairplaywinner.

    It was pandemonium, Legosaid, describing his team follow-ing the final whistle in the cham-pionship final. The entire half ofthe floor was littered with stuff.It was cool.

    Two years ago, Lego took abantam C team from Burnaby to

    the provincials, where it finishedfifth.

    What was nice about thisopportunity was the fact that14 of Burnabys 20 players werein their graduating year, addedLego.

    This is the way for them tograduate on top, he said.

    We were the only boys team(from Burnaby) to make it to theprovincials. Its great for the clubthat were still being competi-tive.

    We were close, said Valiante

    in an online press release. (We)wanted to make sure we got on thepodium today because we didntthink we had the car to win. Weachieved that goal, but we are goingto have to roll off the truck better thenext couple of rounds if we want tocontend for a championship. Wewant to be back on top.

    The New Westminstersprinter set a newB.C. openand native womens youthrecord of 23.75 in the 200m,smashing Krysha Baileys14-year-old record mark of24 seconds flat.

    Tjernagels pendingrecord time also obliteratedher own previous best timeof 24.21 and advanced theCoquitlam Cheetahs clubrunner to the semifinals,following a third-placefinish in the qualifyingheats at the world juniorsin Eugene, Oregon on theweekend.

    It was amazing, saidTjernagels coach Tara Self.We went down to watchand she ran a phenomenalrace. It was at the rightplace and the right time.To be able to go into thatenvironment and performexceedingly well is out-standing.

    Tjernagel was later elim-

    inated in the semifinals ofthe 200m following a sixth-place finish in her heat,despite a second straightsub-24-second effort at theworlds.

    In that semi, Tjernagelclocked a quick 12th-bestoverall time of 23.90 in theopening heat against thebest 19-and-under athletesfrom more than 212 com-peting countries.

    Due to Tjernagels age,the 16-year-old will be ableto compete again at theworld juniors in two yearstime.

    In Oregon, the weatherwas great. She knew shehad a good run in her,Self added. We expectbig things from her in thefuture. If she is 12th thisyear, whats in store for herin two years time?

    Leya Buchanan ofCanada also failed to moveon after a 24.17 fifth-placeclocking in Heat 2.
