TRANSCRIPT

  • 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

    the issue.The study by the Canadi-

    an Centre for Policy Alter-natives found the number ofworking poor has increasedbetween 2006 and 2012across the region.However, in Burnaby, the

    number of working poorover the same time periodremained flat, dipping to 9.4per cent in 2012 from 9.6per cent in 2006.

    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

    Ivanova, said governmentsand business leaders oftenclaim the way to deal with

    poverty is to create morejobs, but she suggested thenumber of people work-ing but not able to lift out ofpoverty means the econom-

    ic system isnt working.We have a problem

    when working is no longer aguaranteed path out of pov-erty, she told theNOW.In Burnaby, 60 per cent

    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.

    The median individualincome (before tax) of Met-roVancouvers working poorwas $15,040 in 2012.Ivanova also argued the

    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.

  • A federal court of appealdecision to quash approv-al for the Enbridge pipe-line could mean the Cityof Burnaby will have to fileanother court challengeagainst Kinder Morgansexpansion once the processmoves further along.LastThursdays ruling

    found the government ofCanada failed to adequate-ly consult with First Na-tions.According to GregMcDade, a lawyer for the

    City of Burnaby, the deci-sion has shed some light onan important legal question:At what step in the approvalprocess does one challengea pipeline decision? 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-

    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

    that you can only file one,and thats at the end of theprocess.On June 17, the City of

    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

    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-

    lenge the governments fi-nal decision if the Liberalschoose to move ahead withKinder Morgan.Last weeks Enbridge de-

    cision will likely be appealedat the Supreme Court ofCanada,McDade said.We may have to wait

    to see what the next level

    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

    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

    have to be made in light ofthe fact that First Nationshave constitutional sta-tus, and the requirements(for) dealing with First Na-tions are much more oner-ous than dealing with cities.That irony is not lost on methat a city of a quarter of amillion people doesnt havethe ability to get the atten-tion of the courts as well asa First Nation he said.Its always the difficulty inour system of cities with the

    responsibilities we have be-ing the low man on the to-tem pole.Corrigan said the courts

    have repeatedly rejectedBurnabys attempts to up-

    hold its bylaws, but if FirstNations arent properly con-sulted, it can overturn anentire process.Its really the ace up

    our sleeve, as cities cant domuch but First Nations canand will, he said.When asked if the First

    Nations, Burnaby andVan-couver get together to co-ordinate their anti-pipelineefforts, Corrigan said theirlawyers are all in touch witheach other.

    WhenpoliticianscomehometoroostThe political battle over

    what to do about the Low-er Mainlands housing cri-sis is starting to shape upas one of defining issuesfacing voters in the longrun-up to next springsprovincial election.In the past week, the

    NDP called for an in-dependent task force tocrack down on moneylaundering, fraud and taxevasion it says are contrib-

    uting to skyrocketing realestate prices.Interestingly, that hap-

    pened the same week aChinese bank filed a civilclaim against aVancouver-area man, alleging he tookout close to $10 million inloans before skipping thecountry and sinking themoney into Lower Main-land real estate.And, reacting to a re-

    port about shady real es-

    tate practices, the Liber-als revoked the industrysself-governing status. Hav-ing foxes stationed at thehenhouse door had been

    introduced by the Liber-al government a numberof years earlier under theguise of red tape cutting.But that was back when

    the housing market hadmore to do with homesfor people to live in, rath-er than a commodity to betraded on spec.The gov-ernment is late to the par-ty, but the move is wel-come and needed.Cleaning up the indus-

    try is one thing. Coolingthe scorching market isanother.The NDP has proposed

    a series of measures aimedat curbing the influenceof speculators and foreigncapital.The Liberals haveput forward a few small-er tweaks but largely cho-sen to sidestep that ele-phant in the room, tellingmunicipalities to approvemore development proj-

    ects.Expect to hear plenty

    more about it from bothsides as they come knock-ing on your door this sum-mer, looking to make sureyour vote has a home withthem.

    They partied too hard

    Six issuesthatswayB.C.voteThe next provincial elec-

    tion is just 10 months away,and a handful of issues seemto be emerging as the onesthat may have the biggestimpact on the votes out-come.These are the onesgetting more media cover-age and therefore are be-ing put in front of the vot-ers to a greater extent thanothers. The list may changein the months ahead, ofcourse, but for now theseare theTop Six:

    MEGAPROJECTS:

    Both the Site C dam andthe Massey Bridge are high-ly controversial and neatlyprovide a contrast betweenthe two major parties.TheB.C. Liberals, of course, areenthusiastic backers of bothprojects while the NDP op-poses the dam and is criticalof the bridge to replace theaging MasseyTunnel.

    HOUSINGAFFORDABILITY:

    While not a province-wide issue, it is a big onein MetroVancouver, whereseven B.C. Liberal-held rid-ings could tip the NDPsway if enough voters thinkthe B.C. government isntdoing enough to address thelack of affordable housing inthe region.After taking hertime, Premier Christy Clarkseems to have hit upon agame plan on this front.She has 10 months to earncredibility on this issue, andso far shes been upstagedby NDP housing critic Da-vid Eby.

    K-12 EDUCATION:

    Theres a lot of noise be-

    ing made in the educa-tion arena, but its not clearwhether it will translate tohaving a big impact on theelection.Most voters donthave children in the schoolsystem and voter turnoutduring school board elec-tions is notoriously low.

    Nevertheless, passionsrun high in this area, so itsone to keep an eye on.

    RESOURCEDEVELOPMENT:

    Another wedge issue be-tween the pro-developmentB.C. Liberals and the most-ly anti-development NDP.Its another issue that playsdifferently outside of MetroVancouver than within ur-ban areas, and it should so-lidify the B.C. Liberals holdon its up-country seats.

    CRIME:

    Its a big issue in a vi-tal battleground area: Sur-rey, where there will now benine ridings up for grabs (anaddition of one).At leasttwo of those ridings couldswing to either party.

    LEADERSHIP:

    Premier Christy Clark iswell-known, of course, andis a polarizing figure. Hercounterpart, NDP lead-er John Horgan, is not wellknown and needs to provehimself.This can be both anopportunity or a landminefor Horgan.The B.C. Liber-als will be trying hard to de-fine him along very negativelines, so Horgan has to workhard to define himself alongterms hes comfortable with.Keith Baldrey is chief politi-

    cal reporter for Global B.C.

    Veterans deserve bestquality of careDear EditorRe: Veterans care home layingoffnurses,BurnabyNOW, June 24. I amveryconcernedabout the latest newsof the im-minent layoffof registerednurses and licensedpractical nurses at theGeorgeDerbyCentre.My father did notwant to leavehis accom-

    modation in his seniors apartmentwhere heenjoyedhis independence. At the ageof 97,however, he couldnotmanage the complexneeds related to aging andwas glad to find awelcomingplacewhere the staffwere able toassist himwith his care,while respectinghisservice to our country as a SecondWorldWarveteran.Sincehepassedaway twoyears ago, I un-

    derstand that the therapydepartments (phys-iotherapy, occupational therapy, art therapy,music therapy, recreation therapy) and thesocialworkdepartment havehadmajor staffreductions. As a retiredoccupation therapist, Iunderstand theneed to encourage andmain-tain resident independence in challengingcircumstances. This cannot be accomplishedwithminimal professional staffing.The residents carewill be further compro-

    misedwhennurses are replacedby staffwhohavenohistorywith themandwhoarepaidless todo suchademanding and importantoccupation.The articlementions possibly cutting costs

    related to foodand laundry. If so, therewill belittle reason for residents tobemotivated toget up every day! The residents have alwaysbeengivena choice of foods and staffhavealways ensured they are cleanandpresent-able in their ownclothes twovery importantanchors of daily routines.I reiterate thosewhoendup living in such

    a facility are not there by choicebut byneed.Weneed to respect these individuals and thecircumstances that have led to their decreasedindependence. I feel thatweare failing ourveterans and civilian residents byprovidingthemwith awarehouse andnot a caring, sup-portive, encouraging environment.LaurieMisshula,Burnaby

    The report calls for thedevelopment of a com-prehensive poverty reduc-tion plan for B.C. includinga higher minimum wage,stronger employment stan-dards, increased affordablehousing, creation of a $10/day child-care program andmore access to educationand training for low-incomeearners.But Ivanova said the big-

    gest thing is to recognizethat the growing number

    of working poor is a prob-lem, and the various levelsof government need to worktogether.Burnabys numbers pret-

    ty much mirrored the rest ofthe region.The study found 61 per

    cent of MetroVancouverresidents who are stuck be-low the poverty line despitehaving a job are 30 to 54years of age. Just over half ofthe working poor are mar-ried or living common law,and 42 per cent have depen-

    dent children.Among Canadian cities,

    MetroVancouver has thesecond highest rate of work-ing poverty at 8.7 per centof the working-age popula-tion, after GreaterTorontoat 9.1 per cent.There are an estimated

    106,000 people in MetroVancouver in working pov-erty.

    What started as everypet owners nightmare hasspurred a hopeful fund-raising campaign to benefitfour-legged friends acrossthe province.In May, dog trainer Dove

    Cresswell lost nine pets tosmoke inhalation after a firebroke out at her Burnabyhome. In memory of Cress-wells animals, long-timefriend Elisha McCallum hasstarted a fundraising ini-tiative called Happy DogsLegacy. She hopes to raiseenough money to provideevery B.C. fire hall with petoxygen mask kits.At the time of the fire, the

    Burnaby Fire Departmenthad just two pet masks.(Pet oxygen masks) are

    not considered a mandato-ry piece of equipment, saidMcCallum.Im surprised(they arent) because of thegrowth of the pet commu-nity, and the compassion offirst responders.To date, the initiative has

    raised nearly $13,000 of its$15,000 goal.The Burnaby Fire De-

    partment has expressed in-terest in receiving donatedmasks from the campaignso it can outfit all its truckswith three-piece kits.We are more than hap-

    py to accept their donation,Burnaby fire chief Joe Rob-ertson added.Robertson said the dona-

    tions are particularly help-ful since the masks are ex-pensive to purchase at about$180 per kit.The response from oth-

    er fire departments in theprovince has also been re-ceptive so much so thatMcCallum is considering

    extending the campaign toraise more money to affordthe demand for masks.Weve received requests

    for 244 oxygen masks, sothatll cost around $24,000,at least, said McCallum.The Burnaby Fire De-

    partment is to receive 17new masks from the cam-paign and applauds theHappy Dogs Legacy group.It was a bad news sto-

    ry that some good peopleturned into a good newsstory, said Robertson.Anyone interested in do-

    nating can visit www.fundrazr.com/happydogslegacy.

  • Can you tell me a littlebit about yourself?Myself?Well, Im 78 years

    old, and Ive been doing thisfor 10 years.

    And howmany bikesdo you refurbish?Last year, I gave the bu-

    reau 101.All refurbished,looking brand new.

    What got you startedin this?We operate a low-income

    housing project, and whenpeople moved and so on,they often left bicycles be-hind.And they sat out inthe rain and got all rusty,and I thought, Surely I cando something with these

    bikes.So the first year I gath-

    ered up six that were sittingaround outside, broughtthem into the shop, tookthem all apart, sanded andpainted them, got themlooking brand new again,and I thought, Well nowwhat the hell do I do withthem?So a lady that works for

    us in the travel businesssaid, Phone my friend thatworks down at the Christ-mas bureau.So I phoned Chris Bayl-

    iss, (executive director ofthe Lower Mainland Christ-mas Bureau), and I said,Chris, could you use sixreally good refurbished bi-cycles? and he said, Ohcould I ever.So I sent them down to

    him, and he was so im-pressed, he said, Howabout next year? Could

    you do some more for nextyear? and I said sure.Andthat was 10 years ago.

    How do you know howto fix the bikes? Do youhave a background in bi-cycle mechanics?Nope, just trial and error.

    So youre self-taught?Totally self-taught, but

    Im mechanically inclined. Ilike working with machinesand things like that.

    What did you do beforeyou retired?I was a salesman. I sold

    office supplies for Grand &Toy.

    Are you the only guydoing the fixing?No, I have two other guys

    who help me on a semi-reg-ular basis and the other oneon a semi-regular basis. Sothere are three of us work-ing on them.

    Do you ever get to seethe kids reactions whenthey receive the bikes?No, never.

    Why do you keep do-ing it?

    Because I know its fora better cause. I know thatsome kid that cant afforda bike, how his eyes willlight up when he sees a re-ally nice bicycle under theChristmas tree.And thatswhy I do it.

    Im sure they freak outwhen they see it.Thats apretty big deal, getting abike when youre a kid.Oh yeah, for sure. Plus its

    fun. I enjoy it. I tell peopleIm smart like a school bus,but I like working with myhands.

    Do you want people tobring youmore bikes?Right now I have 50 to

    work on.To be honest withyou, I would never turndown kids bikes. Im notlooking for adult bikes atall, just kids bikes, becauseChristmas is for the kids asfar as Im concerned.Adultbikes, I give them to thehomeless people.

    Thats nice, so you fixthose up, too?Only to make them ser-

    viceable. I dont paint themat all, just to make them ser-viceable.

  • With vibrant blue skies, open patios and

    the tinkling melody of the ice cream truck,

    the sounds and sights of summer in the

    Heights are here. Speedily approaching is the

    Giro di Burnaby (Tour of Burnaby), a profes-

    sional cycling race taking place on Hastings

    Street.

    Named in honour of the Giro dItalia (the

    second largest pro-cycling race in the world),

    the Giro will bring thousands of spectators

    to the Heights on Thursday, July 14. Cycling

    enthusiast or not, anyone can appreciate the

    exciting, fast-paced atmosphere that the Giro

    creates.

    The race is one of nine occurring between

    July 8 and 16 as part of B.C. Superweek.

    This nine-day whirlwind is one of North

    Americas most prestigious cycling events

    and features the Tour de Delta, Gastown

    Grand Prix, Giro di Burnaby, PoCo Grand

    Prix and Tour de White Rock.

    The Giro di Burnaby features a 1.2-kilo-

    metre closed-loop course starting at Hastings

    and Carleton.

    The Boffo Breve (youth race) starts at 5:30

    p.m. At 6 p.m. Mayor Derek Corrigan will

    start the womens race. Finally, city coun-

    cillor Pietro Calendino will start the mens

    race at 7:15 p.m. Awards will be presented at

    approximately 8:30 p.m.

    Additionally, there is $15,000 in prize

    money up for grabs. Raising the stakes,

    primes (pronounced preems) are cash

    prizes announced at the beginning of a lap.

    They intensify the pace because the winner

    of that lap also wins the prime.

    If you hear a clanging bell, a prime lap

    has been announced. As a kid who enjoyed

    participating in many sports, I remember lov-

    ing competition days because of the electric

    atmosphere and feeling of anticipation in the

    air. The Giro brings that fun feeling to the

    Heights in a way that is accessible to all ages.

    The Girolino (kids zone) will host ac-

    tivities such as bike decorating and safety

    checks, ID engraving on bikes and a skills/

    obstacle course. It will be located at the grass

    lot at the intersection of Willingdon Avenue

    and Albert Street. For the adults, several

    restaurants will open up their patios and of-

    fer Giro specials. Make sure to stick around

    between and after the races to take in all that

    Burnaby Heights has to offer. For more in-

    formation on the Giro di Burnaby, visit www.

    This year, the city is bracing for 10,000 spectators to line

    the course along Hastings Street to cheer on the riders.

    Were just continuing to build on what we are now hon-

    ing, said Giro organizer Rainy Kent.

    That means there will be a full feld of male and female

    cyclists vying for the top prize. The Giro is part of the Super

    Week series, a collection of cycling races around the region.

    The Superweek races have just totally grown in profle as

    the race on the West Coast, she said.

    If youre new to the race, the Giro di Burnaby is a single

    cycling event, open to male and female cyclists competing

    for a total prize purse of more than $15,000, collected from

    sponsorship. The race consists of 30 laps of the 1.2-kilome-

    tre course for the women and 45 laps for the men.

    The race went on hiatus for two years in 2009 and 2010 but

    returned with renewed sponsorship for 2011.

    For veteran fans, or anyone new who turns out to the race,

    the beer gardens will return and the Giro Expo will be a bit

    bigger this year.

    The expo is an opportunity for spectators to check out the

    event sponsors who contribute to the Giro di Burnaby, while

    featuring many of the Heights vendors and Giro tent that

    has offcial event merchandise.

    The expo, at the corner of Hastings Street and Madison

    Avenue, will open at 5:30 p.m., while the Steamworks Beer

    Garden opens at 6 p.m.

    The Girolino, or kids zone, is also back this year and in-

    cludes bike decorating, bike safety checks, a skills/obstacle

    course and riding area and kids craft station.

    The kids zone runs from 3 to 5 p.m. before the race in the

    grass lot at the corner of Willingdon Avenue and Albert

    Street (directly in front of Eileen Dailly Recreation Centre).

    Something new to the race this year, Kent noted, will be big

    screens at the start/fnish line with cameras set up all around

    Professional cyclists will be vying for a purse totallingmore than $15,000 at this years Giro di Burnaby. More than 10,000 people are expected toline the streets of the Heights for the big event on July 14. PHOTO FILE

    Were pretty excited about that, she said.

    Also new is a name change for the youth

    race to the Boffo Breve, named after the

    sponsor Boffo Developments.

    The youth racers are from all over the

    important because it exposes cycle racing to

    young people in the community. She hopes

    the races will be an inspirational ladder

    for young people to get to the bigger race.

    young people racing, Kent said. People

    are surprised theyre out there racing.

    The youth race kicks off at 5:30 p.m.

    lap. Spectators, including local businesses,

    Kent said 10 per cent of this years crowd

    prime will go to Exceleration, a multisport

    club that caters to children, youth and

    adults of all abilities and backgrounds. She

    explained using triathlon as a base, the club

    trains a wide variety of movement skills and

    sport abilities. It offers a venue for athletes

    from different sports to keep ft and cross

    train, for fun, family and ftness.

  • 22 WEDNESDAY July 6, 2016 BurnabyNOW

    In my last column, wesaw stress as an essentialpart of our lives.It can be positive when

    it moves us to change andgrow, but it affect our mindsand bodies in negative wayswhen we are overwhelmed.This happens when theresjust too much of it: morethan we can handle giventhe time, abilities and sup-port that we have at hand.But sometimes, it is our

    perspective that needs tochange. Its been said that20 per cent of our emotion-al reaction is due to the re-ality of a situation; 80 percent is what we bring into it our assumptions, attitudesand memories.Most of us dont think

    much about stress until weare right in the middle ofit. Suddenly, were over-whelmed.What can youdo each day to maintain ahealthy balance and managestress more positively?Be a good parent to your-

    self.The best advice I can give

    my patients is essentiallythe advice my good parentsgave to me.

    1. BEGOOD: LIVE IN

    ACCORDWITHYOUR

    VALUES.

    My parents both taughtand modelled ethical be-haviour. Doing the rightthing keeps your conscienceclear and helps you sleep

    at night.Telling the truth iseasier than remembering allthe lies you could tell. Be-ing kind just makes you feelgood.Doing work we are pas-

    sionate about with peoplewe care about makes eachmoment more meaningful.

    2. THINKBEFOREYOU

    SPEAKORACT: REFLECT.

    If you are operating onautomatic, you may end upfar from your original desti-nation. If you respond onlyto your emotions, youll bereactive in what you say anddo.Throughout your day,

    pause and reflect upon yourwords and actions. Am Ibeing mindful of my words?Am I doing good work? AmI helping or harming?

    3. CHOOSEGOOD

    FRIENDS,ANDTALKTO

    THEM.

    We all need the supportof friends we trust and wholove us without question.They listen when we needto vent, and they care aboutus enough to set us straightwhen were on the wrongpath.The value of such a sup-

    port group is even more im-portant when we grow upand cope with the manyroles and stages of our lives,including parenthood, rela-tionship crises, midlife andretirement.

    4. BUTREMEMBER FAMILY

    COMES FIRST.

    I didnt get it when mymom told me this during

    my teens. Friends and girl-friends come and go, butfamily is always here foryou. She was right again.Too often we neglect our

    partners and children be-cause of work and othermisplaced priorities. If wewait too long, we mistakefamily relationships to bethe source of our stress.The time you invest in

    your most important rela-tionships is never wasted.

    5. GOOUTANDPLAY.

    We all need regular (aimfor daily) exercise. It cankeep you fit, burn off steamand help you manage therest of the day.

    6. DONTSKIPMEALS.

    Schedule regular healthy

    meals to keep your energyup and your body healthy.What you save in time byskipping a meal, you lose infatigue and poor health.

    7. TAKEABREAK.

    Our brains and bodieswere not designed to workwithout a break for morethan a few hours at a time.We all need regular breaksto maintain our attentionand energy.

    8. GOTOBED.

    Get enough sleep eachnight.DavidicusWong is a fam-

    ily physician and his Health-wise columns appear regularlyin this paper.For more, see hiswebsite at www.davidicuswong.wordpress.com.

He won silver at the pro-vincials in the senior 200-metre dash,and anchored theWildcats third-placefinish in the 4 x 100m relay.An an-kle injury, suffered while posting thequickest time in the qualifying heat,resulted in a fourth-place showing inthe 100m dash.At the regionals, hewon both the senior male 100- and200m dashes.Nathan was a stand-out track and

    field athlete who is going to be run-ning for SFU next year, remarkedathletic director Curtis Hodgson. Heanchored the 4x100 (relay) to a third-place finish at provincials (Mah is )also an outstanding leadership studentat Central.Wright was involved with three

    sports basketball, soccer and ulti-mate. She was the MVP of her seniorsoccer team and served as an athleticcommunity role model.Toughness. High basketball IQ.

    Leadership.Words bantered about sogenerously they have lost some of theirlustre, noted Central senior girls bas-ketball co-coach Peter van den Hoo-gen. In Reesas case though, they areiron clad statements about her char-acter and ability. Coach Chris Duch-arme and myself hold Reesa in thehighest regard because she is a tre-mendous athlete, school ambassadorand fierce competitor, but most im-portantly because she gives back tothe game, and is a good-hearted kid.Burnaby Centrals list of athlet-

    Chancousinsunite forkaratemedalsMelissa scores gold, Izzy captures bronze at theYouthWorld Cup in CroatiaDanOlsondolson@burnabynow.com

    There were expectations, therewas pressure, and there was theexperience.Melissa Chan was able to

    check off all three en route to aYouthWorld Cup karate goldmedal last week in Croatia.The Burnaby teen, in just her

    second year of international com-petition, was part of a 40-ath-lete team representing Canada atthe event in Umag, Croatia. Oneof six members of the BurnabyKarate Academy on the roster,Melissa credited her cousin andteammate, Isabel Chan, aka Izzy,for helping prepare her from thevery start.Ive never competed at the

    Youth Cup in Croatia, so this wasa completely new experience forme,Melissa replied in an emailfrom Europe to theNOW. Itrained for this competition like Ihave any other tournament.Thepreparation was the same as al-ways, training with my cousinIzzy.That preparation was vital un-

    der the spotlight of representingCanada in 16-17 girls 48-kilo-gram kumite.A Burnaby South student,

    Melissa said earlier round winshelped build her confidence anda calm resolve that carried herinto the gold medal match withSpains Ana Palomo Lorenzo.

    Oddly enough, I felt reallycalm and relaxed going into fi-nals, she said. I knew that I didall the hard work to get to (the)finals so it was time to just havefun. I think the key was to not getstressed and nervous, otherwisemy game would be thrown off.It also helped having all my

    friends cheering me on and hav-ing (junior national kumite coachDenis Beaudoin) in my corner.That support

    proved helpful asthe 16-year-oldbeat competitorsfrom Serbia,Aus-tria and Bosnia byscores of 8-1, 6-0and 5-0, setting upa final shed win3-0.Her biggest ad-

    vantage, she said, was having atraining partner whose intensityand support fuelled her own.Most of all, I truly believe that

    I would not be here without thesupport of Izzy. She is the key tomy success and everything I haveachieved in karate.For the older Chan, this was

    the third international competi-tion and secondWorld Juniors.Izzy parlayed her own experi-ence and hard work into a bronzemedal, edging a Romanian rival3-1 for the honour.Her route to the 18-20 wom-

    ens bronze in -50kg division sawher beat a Croatian 1-0, then re-

    bound from a close 1-0 loss toDenmark with a 6-0 victory overa Romanian, followed by the finalwin for the medal.With both Chans making

    the Canadian roster, there wasa comfort zone and familiaritywhich helped in all parts of prep-aration, including the final.For Melissa, the influence of

    Izzy played a role in her taking upthe sport at the age of four, even.

    I started ka-rate in kindergar-ten when SenseiSandeep (Gill ofthe Burnaby Kara-te Academy) orga-nized and taughtan after-school ka-rate program atmy school.Mymom enrolled me

    in it because she knew that mycousins did karate and wanted tosee if I would like it too.As it turns out, I guess you

    could say I liked it.Over the years her style has

    changed and matured, shiftingfrom a defensive mode to a bitmore offensive.I would say my strength is my

    gyaku, which is a reverse punch,and I do plan on using it quite abit.Prior to theYouthWorld Cup,

    Melissa competed at the 2015U.S. Open, finishing third, andthe PanAmerican championshipsin Bolivia last year, where she

    placed seventh and gained valu-able experience.The main goal going into the

    YouthWorld Cup was to justhave fun and gain experience. Iknew the Europeans would betough competitors, so I just hadto do the best that I couldWhen I won finals, I was ec-

    static. Im not the type of personto show it in the ring, but once Igot off to the sidelines it was timeto celebrate.The Canadian team also se-

    cured two silvers and three morebronze.For Melissa, a result like this

    expands her horizons. It alsosparks bigger, bolder goals onesshe is eager to embrace.The big goal that everyone is

    working towards isWorlds, whichis happening next year in thefall, she said. I am also look-ing forward to the next compe-tition, which is the PanAmeri-can championships in Ecuador(in August) Of course, we areall hopeful that karate will beaccepted into the 2020TokyoOlympics, in which case (that)would be something else to lookforward to.Also representing Canada from

    the Burnaby Karate Academywere Angelica Gomez-Lalonde,in 16-17 girls -59kg, Jai Sang-hera, in 16-17 boys +59kg, Bren-dan Ly, in 18-20 boys +84kg,andMichael Plunkett, in 14-15boys -52kg.

    Oddlyenough, Ifelt reallycalmandrelaxed
