<ul><li><p>You would have to fillSwangard Stadiummorethan twice to account forthe number of working poorin Burnaby.Those are thenumbers from a new studytrying to shed light on thegrowing problem inMet-roVancouver and recom-mending action to deal with</p><p>the issue.The study by the Canadi-</p><p>an Centre for Policy Alter-natives found the number ofworking poor has increasedbetween 2006 and 2012across the region.However, in Burnaby, the</p><p>number of working poorover the same time periodremained flat, dipping to 9.4per cent in 2012 from 9.6per cent in 2006.</p><p>But at 9.4 per cent, theworking poverty rate is stillfourth highest in the regionbehind Richmond,Vancou-ver and GreaterVancouverElectoral Area A.The studyestimates there are 11,110working poor individualsliving in Burnaby.The studys author, Iglika</p><p>Ivanova, said governmentsand business leaders oftenclaim the way to deal with</p><p>poverty is to create morejobs, but she suggested thenumber of people work-ing but not able to lift out ofpoverty means the econom-</p><p>ic system isnt working.We have a problem</p><p>when working is no longer aguaranteed path out of pov-erty, she told theNOW.In Burnaby, 60 per cent</p><p>of the working poor areaged 30 to 54, and 43 percent have children.A break-down shows the largestnumber of working poor arein the South Burnaby andMetrotown area of the city.</p><p>The median individualincome (before tax) of Met-roVancouvers working poorwas $15,040 in 2012.Ivanova also argued the</p><p>growing rate of workingpoor is creating problemsfor the future, while a lot ofmoney is being spent deal-ing with the consequenc-es of poverty, in places likehealth care and policing.</p><p>WEDNESDAY JULY 6, 2016 LOCAL NEWS LOCAL MATTERS</p><p>NEWS 5 COMMUNITY 11 ARTS 21Speak up about the pipeline He fixes up bikes for kids in need Arts alive at Deer Lake</p><p>Theres more at Burnabynow.com</p><p>Workingpoorwouldll stadiumtwiceCITYHASFOURTHHIGHESTRATEINLOWERMAINLAND</p><p>TANABATATURNS:Nanami Iwata, 5,andKotoneOtsuki,3, right, dancetogetherduringSaturdays TanabataFestival at theNikkeiNationalMuseumandCultural CentreinBurnaby.

So far,Burnaby and other partieshave been filing challengesover the NEBs recommen-dation, but thats not the fi-nal step.One of the decisions (to-</p><p>days ruling) decided is youcant bring a judicial re-view at this point.You haveto wait for the Governor inCouncils decision, he said.What the court holds is</p><p>that you can only file one,and thats at the end of theprocess.On June 17, the City of</p><p>Burnaby filed an applicationwith the Federal Court ofAppeal asking for a judicialreview of the National Ener-gy Boards recommendationto approve the Kinder Mor-gan pipeline expansion proj-ect.The City ofVancouver,theTsleil-Waututh Nationand the Squamish Nationall filed similar applicationschallenging the NEBs de-cision.But the NEB doesnt</p><p>have the final say on thepipeline.That comes later,likely in December, fromfederal cabinet, expressedformally as a decision by theGovernor in Council. Sofar,Vancouver, Burnaby andlocal First Nations have ap-pealed at the NEB level, butthey will likely need to chal-</p><p>lenge the governments fi-nal decision if the Liberalschoose to move ahead withKinder Morgan.Last weeks Enbridge de-</p><p>cision will likely be appealedat the Supreme Court ofCanada,McDade said.We may have to wait</p><p>to see what the next level</p><p>says,McDade added. Ifthis decision is right, and itmay very well be, the CityofVancouver and all theseFirst Nations still have acase, they just have to wait.That was an open ques-tion in the law before. No-body really knew.Burnaby Mayor Derek</p><p>Corrigan was happy to hearthe news but noted citiesdont have nearly the sameclout as First Nations whenit comes to legal challengesagainst pipelines.All of these decisions</p><p>Newsnow</p><p>CELEBRATE:It justwouldnt beCanadaDaywithouta coupleofMountiesin red serge.OscarLi, upper left, poseswith theofficers in fulldressuniforms.
