Cariboo Hill SecondaryGrade 9 student JonathanNewman is leaving on a jetplane and he doesnt knowif hell be back again.The 14-year-old has lived
in Canada since age three,making friends in his neigh-bourhood near the BurnabyMountain Golf Course andat Scouts, Sperling Elemen-tary and Cariboo Hill Sec-ondary.But he, his mom and his
dad,David Newman, anSFU communications in-structor, cant stay becauseof problems with their im-migration status.Its home, and I dont
want to leave home, Jona-than told theNOW. Id befine if I was gone for justa year, but anything morethan that, I wouldnt re-ally like that. Id be awayfrom all my friends who Iveknown for 11 years now.Jonathans dad, who
holds a New Zealand pass-port like his son, is caughtin a catch-22 when it comesto getting permanent resi-dency in Canada under thecurrent express-entry pointssystem.Newman senior gets no
points for having a continu-ing position at SFU eventhough he has been work-ing at the university con-tinuously for eight-and-a-half years but he said he isblocked from considerationfor permanent positions be-cause of his immigrationstatus.With the expiry of his
post-graduation work per-mit (Newman finished his
PhD at SFU in 2013), hecan no longer work in Can-ada and Jonathan can nolonger attend school.The family is appealing
to Minister of ImmigrationJohnMcCallum throughBurnaby North-SeymourMPTerry Beechs office,hoping the minister will usehis discretionary powers togrant the family permanent
residency or an invitation toapply on humanitarian andcompassionate grounds soJonathan can go to CaribooHill and the family doesnthave to pull up its roots inBurnaby.Newman has a lot of sup-
port in SFUs school ofcommunication, accord-ing to professor Jody Baker,who has personally written
the immigration minister onhis behalf.Hes had a huge impact
on a lot of students here,Baker said. He teaches oneof the introductory first-year courses, so hes got alot of students, and then heteachers a lot of upper-yearcourses.Theyre very smalland very intense.Baker said he has invited
his friends and colleagues inthe school of communica-tion to write letters of sup-port.The communication stu-
dent union is also behindhim.Many of us have taken
courses with Dr. Newmanand have learned valuablethings from him, presidentTiana Marconato told the
NOW in an email. As astudent union, well be writ-ing a letter to the ministerof immigration urging himto exercise his discretionarypowers to grant Dr. New-man and his family perma-nent resident status so hecan continue to teach hiscourses at SFU.We will also

In many ways,TommyBoyce and DanielTepersoncouldnt be less alike.Sitting in the dining
room of his Burnaby in-dependent living facility,68-year-old Boyce wearsfaded jeans and a blackT-shirt. He sports a gray goa-tee and faded tattoos on hisforearms.Teperson, a fresh-faced
Grade 10 student, wearsa tie and his St. Georgesblazer.Boyce was born and
raised in gritty 1960s EastVancouver and went toworking-classTempletonHigh School.Teperson lives in Kitsi-
lano and attends a private,all-boys prep school.But whenTeperson was
partnered with Boyce for anintergenerational storytell-ing project that wrapped upin Burnaby last month, theyoungster knew hed luckedout.I definitely did,Teper-
son tells theNOW. Rightafter the first day when Igot on the bus, I said, I gotthe perfect partner.They clicked over their
love of sports, he says, asBoyce (a.k.a.The BlondeTiger) shared stories of hislife and boxing career which included a Canadi-an amateur title, a 17-1 prorecord and a stint trainingin the same gym as the lateMuhammadAli.The thing about talk-
ing to someone with such awide variety of stories to tellis that something in eachstory connected to some-thing in your life and youcould really connect it,Te-person says of the experi-ence. Just becauseTom-my grew up in EastVan,and I was fortunate enoughto grow up in a nice neigh-bourhood in Kitsilano,doesnt mean that were notgoing to have overlappingexperiences.Teperson and Boyce were
brought together by the Ra-conteurs Project an eight-week project developed bySt. Georges English andsocial studies teacher Sar-ah Coates and her longtimefriend, Lindsey Fancy, co-owner of Home Instead Se-nior Care in Burnaby.The idea, which Coates
and Fancy hope to growinto a standalone organiza-tion, is to connect genera-tions through the art of sto-rytelling.As a pilot project this
year, Coates integrated theconcept into an Englishclass at St. Georges pair-ing her students and seniorsat the Poppy Residencesand bringing them togeth-er for hour-and-a-half ses-sions over the course ofeight weeks.
At a wrap-up luncheon inJune, participating seniorswere presented with book-lets of stories and poemsstudents had written aboutthe tales Poppy residentshad told them.This was part of the
students English for theterm,Coates says. We didcreative writing, and so thiswas our impetus for the cre-
ative writing that they did.We used these visits to doexercises when we wentback to school.In the future, she and
Fancy want to see the proj-ect expand beyond St.Georges.I would envision dif-
ferent ages, different typesof schools, even differenttypes of programs like ifGirl Guides or Boy Scoutswanted to participate aswell, she says.The Poppy Residenc-
es, which hosted the wrap-up luncheon last month,was picked for the pilot be-cause there was a lot of in-terest from residents in par-ticipating.For Boyce, the decision
to get involved was part-ly an act of defiance againstdementia andAlzheimers a resolve that was drivenhome recently by the deathof Ali, who had Parkin-sons syndrome, a diseasethat sometimes results fromhead trauma from activitieslike boxing.I knew he had the same
thing that I got, demen-
tia and whatever from toomany shots, Boyce told theNOW, and its the samefor me, right?Thats whatIm going through now, butthe more you fight, the bet-ter you are. Like, Im notgoing to lay down and lickmy nuts, thats for sure.Boyce hopes others who
struggle with dementia willbe encouraged by his open-ness.In the meantime, he said
sharing his stories withTe-person and other studentswas a new and rewardingexperience.They loved it, he said.
I dont usually do this,but I enjoyed doing it, andI watched the kids facesand their eyes and watchedthem how they liked it, andthey were really into it, soI figured, Well, I might aswell spill my guts.The Raconteurs Project
is currently recruiting story-tellers (seniors) and story-writers (youth) in the Low-er Mainland for 2016/17.To find out more, visit

be encouraging students tospread the word and makeas much noise as possibleon our social media chan-nels.The latest news from the
immigration ministry isthat it is working on chang-es to its express entry pro-gram, but theres no guar-antee Newman would haveenough points under thenew system either.It is premature to com-
ment on possible systemchanges, timing or wheth-er or not Mr.Newmanwould be impacted, readsan emailed statement fromcommunications advisorNancy Chan.
For Newman, the processhas been frustrating.There is some disso-
nance in Canadian immi-gration policy, he said in anemail to theNOW, whereon the one hand over28,000 Syrian refugees canbe accepted into the coun-try at relatively short no-tice, and yet highly qualifiedscholars with years of livingand working here (and on-going work) are forced toleave because they dont fitthe narrow requirements ofthe points scheme.But thats comparing ap-
ples and oranges, accordingto Chan.Canada resettles refu-
gees to save lives and to pro-
vide stability to those fleeingpersecution who have nohope of relief, she wrote.Canadas resettlement pro-grams are respected interna-tionally because they
provide permanent resi-dence as a long-term solu-tion. Economic immigra-tion programs, such as thoseunder Express Entry which
Mr.Newman is seeking touse as a means of obtainingpermanent residence, are inplace to select immigrantsfor their skills and abilityto contribute to Canadaseconomy.As for the likelihood the
minister would step in anduse his discretionary pow-ers in Newmans case, Chansaid ministerial discretion-ary powers are only used inexceptional cases and eachcase is considered on itsown merit.Currently in Canada on
a visitors record, Newmanhas started moving his fam-ilys belongings into storage.He will fly with Jonathan onAug. 2 toVietnam, where
they will join Davids wifeand Jonathans mom,HienNguyen, who is currentlythere to be close to her ail-ing, elderly mother.Hopefully its only tem-
porary and well be comingback,Newman said.
Hopefully itsonly temporaryandwell becomingback

For years, the cities ofBurnaby and Coquitlamhave shared the duties ofmaintaining the road thatdivides the two municipal-ities.And as a result of anoth-
er agreement, the two cit-ies will continue to share theload on North Road.Recently, council gave the
thumbs-up to a new five-year agreement with Co-quitlam to maintain thebusy road as the new Ever-green Line comes to com-pletion.According to a staff re-
port, the agreement in gen-eral provides for 50-50 costsharing and outlines the di-
vision of duties for main-tenance for shared andnon-shared facilities alongNorth Road, includingmaintenance of pavement,signs, lighting, traffic signals,boulevards and medians.For shared facilities such
as the landscaped traf-fic medians, Coquitlamwill maintain them northof Cameron Street, whileBurnaby will maintain themsouth of Cameron Street.For shared facilities such astraffic signals, road mark-ings and special effects light-ing located on the Ever-green Line guideway, therewill be a 50-50 cost share.There was no indication
how much the city spendsannually maintaining itsportion of North Road.
The report also noted theprovincial government tookover portions of the road in2012 to construct the Ever-green Line.While portions of the
road are currently arterialhighway vested in the B.C.Transportation FinancingAuthority, its anticipatedthe province will revert por-tions of North Road backto Burnaby.The city not-ed once that has occurred,Burnaby and Coquitlamwill adopt the agreement.Under the agreement,
which has been in placesince 1983, the boundaryis the centre of the roadwaydividing northbound fromsouthbound traffic move-ment.

Scalpingcampsites is justnotrightWe probably should have
written this editorial in Jan-uary because thats whenit might have helped some-one.But we didnt. So, now
we, like thousands of oth-er folks in B.C. who actu-ally believe in fairy talesand tourism ads, thoughtwe could book a provincialcampsite before the kids goback to school.Dream on.By now most campsites
are booked as the province
has moved to a virtual full-time online reservation sys-tem.Gone are the days when
you used to be able to sayon a Friday morning, Letsgo camping this weekend!Now, you have to look atthe vacation schedule inJanuary and plan ahead way ahead and ensureyoure first online when res-ervations for your desiredcampsite open three monthsin advance.It all started decades ago
when the Liberals, then un-der Gordon Campbell,started enticing private de-velopers to view the greatoutdoors as a NorthernDisneyland to be squeezedfor sparse family dollars.Large campgrounds were
to have entertainment fa-cilities that would make theold nature trails seem, well,boring. Folks might want topitch a tent, but there wereyurts and modern cabins tobe had as well.A backlash by British
Columbians who actuallythought camping was aboutgetting away from civiliza-tion and all that it entailscooled the governmentsjets a bit, but you just knewthey were waiting for anoth-er time.And that time has appar-
ently come.With a bit of atwist.Now, you just cant get a
spot in a provincial camp-ground, so youre forced togo to private campgrounds.Were not saying that there
arent a lot of very nice pri-vate campgrounds in B.C.There are. But you can usu-ally hear the folks in thenext site snoring (to putit nicely) and, of course,theres the corner countrystore full of everything youtried to leave behind in thecity. It just isnt the same asa real campground whereyou can hear the soft crunchof leaves underfoot when araccoon trundles by.Before this past Canada
Day long weekend, the lack
of campsites even triggereda death threat. Some busi-nesses are scalping reser-vations for foreign campersand making a big profit offof them.This is wrong. B.C.taxpayers subsidize thosecampgrounds and parksand should get first dibs onthem.When campsite reserva-
tions are scalped like rockconcert tickets, its time fora better plan. Lets fix thisbefore someone starts tip-ping over outhouses.

Ownahome?FatchanceThe future of tenancy
seems to be a strong likeli-hood for myself, along withother young adults in theVancouver housing mar-ket. If the lack of regulationand involvement by the gov-ernment continues the wayit has in recent years, thehousing market will con-tinue to be dominated byforeign ownership, vacanthomes, and displaced citi-zens and families who sim-ply cannot afford to own ahome in the Lower Main-land.Additionally, this cangreatly impact the cityseconomy, cultures and over-all well-being.Foreign and local de-
mand for housing has large-ly outweighed the supply ofhomes readily available forpurchase. Having workedas a secretary for a real es-tate agent, I have witnessedbidding wars often result-ing in offers that were tensof thousands of dollars overasking price. Seeing localfirst-time buyers lose to for-eign investors in these bid-ding wars was a harsh rep-resentation of the overallhousing market.This alsointimidates many home-owners, scaring them fromselling their home in fearthat they cannot afford an-other one, which ultimate-ly brings down the supply ofhomes.In basic economic terms,
this lack of supply with anoverwhelming amount ofdemand will result in pricehikes for homes.Affordability becomes
an issue outside of just be-ing able to purchase a home
as well.Additionally, thereis the cost of living to con-sider. Once you have pur-chased a home, how muchof your income is left forfood, water, heat and otheressentials? How much dis-posable income does onehave after their monthlymortgage payment to con-sume and feed back into theeconomy?That brings us to the next
issue, which applies to for-eign homeowners who leavetheir homes vacant and donot offer their home for ten-ancy.Without actual resi-dents and citizens livinghere, there is less money tospend on local businessesand companies, which caninterrupt or slow the localeconomy.As beautiful as this city is
and as hard as it would beto leave, many might feelforced to turn to other cit-ies.When citizens choose tomove, they are taking theirexpertise with them, result-ing in a brain drain.The truth is that we as
young adults are all con-cerned about our future inthis beautiful city. If pricescontinue to increase the waythey have been, our chancesof owning a home are quitebleak.This trend is not new.It is a pattern we have seenand observed for numerousyears, yet only recently hasthe provincial governmentstarted to pitch potentialregulations.We have seen how quickly
the housing market moves.It is time we see the sameurgency from the govern-ment.
They were really into it, soI figured,Well, I might as
well spill my guts.

Whats the real dealwith Castros Cuba?Dear Editor Itwas not so longago that theloudest local globalwarmingdenierwasshootinghismouthoffona regular basis,insisting that itwasnt happening, andnevermind the science. But then 2015was thehot-test year on record, andheatwaves startedkilling people in droves, and it becamea littletoohard to insist that thiswas all a socialistconspiracy.Sowhat does thisMouthofHarper do for
an encore?He flips thepage in theBookofUntruth and copies andpastes fromanewsection. Time to insist that there is nopovertyhere, andanyway, thosebad socialists overthere areworse off thanus. (BurnabyNOW,July 1).Theworkingpoor knowwhat poverty
means. The engineer fromKorea and the law-yer fromEngland,working as security guardsfor near-minimumwage, knowwhat thats allabout. Sodoes the guywhowasworking in afactory at adecentwageand is nowhomeless.Scratch just about anyone, and youwill hearthese stories. But at the same time, real estatespeculators are raking in obsceneamounts ofmoney. Thatswhats goingon inCanada.Its different in Cuba,where everyone is
poor. Except that, taken in context, they arentpoor at all. Theproper comparison for Cuba isother Latin American countries. In that com-parison, Cuba ranks very, verywell.Even compared to the FirstWorld,when
considering important indicators suchasliteracy and infantmortality, Cuba ranks very,verywell. TheCubanhealth-care system isworld-class.But even that ignores themost important
piece of information,which is the 50-year longeconomic blockade that Cubahas suffered.Anynon-socialist country dealingwith thatwouldhave collapsed longago.As to Fidel Castro,whomsome slander as
adictator, to theCubanpeople he is a hero.He led themout of the actual poverty thatexistedunder theBatista regime.He, andChe,andRaoul, et al. If he has any extra privileges,it is because theCubanpeople insist that hehas them.Which theydo, every year,whenamillionpeople demonstrate in the streets ofHavanaand celebrate their government. Andwhich theydoevery day, because theCubanRevolution is still going strong, every singleday.Victor Finberg,Burnaby
Time to stop helpingthe fossil fuel economyDear Editor In the caseof theKinderMorganpipeline theoil being shipped is for export toAsianmarkets, so the argument thatweneedit becauseweall drive cars and trucks is a hol-lowone. If only that crudewerebeing refinedand consumedhere, the jobs createdwouldalmost havemeonboard.But thebigger issue is thatweneed to

8 FRIDAY July 8, 2016 BurnabyNOW
For the better part of ayear, Robert Campbell hasbeen using an electric scoot-er to get around his NorthBurnaby neighbourhood.But its not always easy or
safe travels for the senior.Campbells biggest ob-
stacle when hes out of hishouse are the sidewalks.More specifically, over-grown shrubs and hedg-es that hang over walkwaysand boulevards.Its making it really dif-
ficult to get around becauseyou have to go close to theedge of the curb, he toldtheNOW. Ive actually al-most fallen off my scooteronce already.Campbell, who lives on
Duthie Avenue, noted inone spot a hedge has grownall the way to a signpost,forcing him to go betweenthe two obstacles, scratchingup his scooter.Frustrated by his predic-
ament, hes asking for thecity to step in to deal withthe problem. Campbell saidhed like to see some sort ofbylaw that would prohib-it property owners from al-lowing their plants to in-
fringe on the sidewalk.He also said hes called
the city about the issue thelast month but hasnt gottenanywhere, and he wantedto reach out to the media toget some help.Its been an issue, espe-
cially when its on streets Itravel on regularly, he said,adding there are other peo-ple in the community withmobility issues strugglingwith the same problem.It appears the city is well
aware of the issue.
Sheryl Pordan, a trafficassistant with the city, saidthe municipality receivescomplaints about over-grown hedges on a week-ly basis, adding the busiesttime for complaints is dur-ing the spring and summer.She said the city responds
on a per-complaint basisand will go out to the side-walk, take a picture, send a
letter to the property ownerand tell them to cut what-ever is overhanging back be-hind the sidewalk by one ortwo feet.She added the city will
give the homeowner a cou-ple weeks to do the work,and if they dont, crews willgo out and cut it back.Pordan explained that
its up to property ownersto maintain the boulevardin front of their house, andin most cases the problemcomes from something theowner has planted on thecitys boulevard.Shes said its important
the sidewalks are kept clearfor people with mobility is-sues, adding anyone withproblems can call the cityand let them know.Sidewalks were installed
for safe passage of pedestri-ans, not for people to havetheir trees and everythinggrowing over them, Por-dan said.She also noted the city
is working on strengthen-ing the current bylaw thatwould make homeownersresponsible for cutting andmaintaining the boulevard.

Discrimination. Intoler-ance.Violence.They were themes taken
from the headlines nearly60 years ago, whenArthurLaurents penned what wasto become one of the classicmusicals of all time.They are themes that,
sadly, still resonate in theworld today and thatsone of the reasons why Ca-leb Lagayan, Kai Bradburyand Damon Jang are look-ing forward to taking to thestage in theTheatre Underthe Stars production ofWestSide Story this summer.West Side Story opened in
preview this week, with itsofficial opening set for July13. Lagayan, Bradbury andJang are all from Burna-by, and all three appear asmembers of the Sharks, thePuerto Rican gang that fac-es off against the white Jetsin the Romeo & Juliet storyset in 1950s NewYork City.The musical with music
by Leonard Bernstein, lyricsby Stephen Sondheim andchoreography by JeromeRobbins is best known bymost audience membersfrom the hit 1961 film.But if the movie and its
classic dancing, finger-snap-ping gang members arewhat you picture when youthink ofWest Side Story,
then think again.West Side is quite dif-
ferent from how people re-member it being, saysBradbury, noting that mostpeople just seem to remem-ber it as two gangs danc-ing. It has so much moredepth than that.The storyis more relevant now than itwas in the 50s.
He notes the plot of thefilm was taken straight outof the real headlines follow-ing a gang murder in 1950sNewYork City.It was fresh off the head-
lines then and definitely itfeels like it is now, still, hesays.Jang agrees, noting that
this version ofWest Side Sto-ry, as envisioned by directorSarah Rodgers, will be dif-ferent than audiences haveseen before.
Its darker, grittier, notas clean, he says. It leavesthe audience with a feeling
of loss.Jang says that, even in re-
hearsal, the power of therumble and death scenesisnt lost on the performers.I am holding my breath,
Im literally shocked andemotionally impacted bythe work everyone is doing,he says.Jang says a big difference
for audiences will be thechoreography byTara Chey-enne Friedenberg, with anemphasis on contemporaryand modern lines all root-ed in research into lesser-known forms of street dancethat appeared in NewYorkCity in the 1950s.
This will appeal to amuch wider generation ofdance artists, Jang says.It feels different, its got astreet feel.All three are grateful for
the chance to appear in aclassic likeWest Side Story.The music is fantastic,
Bradbury points out. Ev-eryone knows I Feel Pret-ty, everyone knows the JetSong,America,Maria,To-nightAt rehearsal some-times, I pinch myself. Ithink, Wow, are we real-ly singing this song? Its sospecial.The 22-year-old actor is
thrilled to be working withTUTS which he callskind of a dream for mu-sical theatre performers inthat it has the luxury of an
extended rehearsal peri-od for a professional-quali-ty show.For Lagayan, appear-
ing on theTUTS stage iseye-opening.The 18-year-old, who has just finishedup his first year in the musi-cal theatre program at Cap-ilano University, points outTUTS offers a chance towork alongside and learnfrom performers with muchmore experience.Among those perform-
ers is Jang the veteran ofthe Sharks at the age of 30 who has served as a com-munity theatre instructorand choreographer at By-rne Creek Secondary, whereLagayan went to school.Now onstage in his third
TUTS production, Jangmakes his way in the theatreworld by taking on a wholehost of roles directing,teaching and performing arejust a small part of what hesdone, alongside choreogra-phy, publicity, arts adminis-tration and backstage work.He particularly appreci-
atesTUTS, he says, becauseactors who have other skillsare encouraged to bringthose skills to the table theperformer appearing as Ber-nardo (Alen Dominguez)is also an assistant director;another performer with ac-robatic skills has a chance toincorporate those into thegang choreography. And
Rodgers, when coming upwith her overall vision forthe show, gave each actor achance to share their ownvision for their characterslook and costuming.In addition to perform-
ing, we get to have our ownideas represented, Jangnotes.While each of the three
is immersed in bringing tolife the nuances of his owncharacter Jang appears asthe frenetic Anxious; Lagay-an is the young and nave
Indio; and Bradbury is thegang leaders right-handman, Chino they say theaudience will be left im-pressed by every aspect ofthe production, from thesets and costumes to thedancing, singing and acting.Its truly a piece of art,
says Jang.Get ready, adds Lagay-
an, because this is notsomething youre going tosee coming. Its definitelygoing to be something verydifferent.

A Lower Mainland vet-erinarian has a message forthe public after perform-ing emergency surgery on aWestern painted turtle fromBurnaby Lake: barbed fish-ing hooks and endangeredturtles dont mix.AdrianWalton of Dewd-
ney Animal Hospital re-moved a barbed fish hookthat was lodged in theesophagus of aWesternpainted turtle that belongedto a breeding program atthe lake.The first thing is barbed
hooks are just evil.Theydont just deal with fish,they also get into turtles,ducks, geese any type ofwildlife,Walton told theNOW. Even if the linesnaps, theyll just follow italong and get the hooks inthat way.Walton said he gets two to
three turtles with fish hooksper year.The red-eared slid-ers are euthanized, sincethey are usually dumped
pets and are an invasivespecies, butWalton will dowhat he can to save the red-listedWestern painted tur-tles.This particular turtle had
a large number eight paint-ed on its shell so biologistscould identify the breed-ing female.To make mattersworse, the X-ray showedthis turtle had a secondhook in its system.According to B.C. regu-
lations, fishing with barbedhooks in Burnaby Lake ispermitted, although anykind of fishing in the tribu-taries or streams is prohib-ited.Hannah Nieman, chair of
the Burnaby Lake Park As-sociation, said fishing linescan cause problems for allkinds of wildlife, and thegroup wants to mark off-limit waterways with no-fishing signs.We definitely want to
let the fishing communityknow theyre not supposedto be fishing in these areas,she said. Tributaries areimportant habitat for salm-
on and endangered turtles.As for the red-eared slid-
ers,Walton urged the publicnot to buy them as pets.(They) are horrible, hor-
rible pets that nobody wantswhen they are full sized.They are the size of a dinnerplate and nasty and smellyand stinky and mean,Wal-ton said. This is comingfrom a guy who loves rep-tiles.The No. 8 turtle is now
in the care of the Coast-al PaintedTurtle Project, agroup of biologists monitor-ing the Lower MainlandsWestern painted turtles. Shepassed the second fish hookand is eating and recover-ing. She will eventually bereleased back in the wild.The Coastal PaintedTur-
tle Project is in talks withMetroVancouver to banfishing in a portion of theBrunette River between theCariboo Dam and a near-by turtle nesting beach.Thebiologists have successful-ly negotiated fishing bans inthree other parks.

An SFU grad is bringinga taste of Hawaii to Burna-by Mountain this fall withthe citys first pok bar.CamyWong decided to
get into the pok businessafter noticing a limited se-lection of food options forSFU students beyond thetypical chain fare ofTimHortons or Subway.It takes a lot of time to
leave the mountain, so a lotof students arent going tocommute down the moun-tain just to grab food, shesaid.The restaurant willbe located in the Corner-stone building near SFUsupper bus loop.Wong be-lieves Pok Bar will providea unique and healthy alter-native to the food currently
offered on campus.Pok is a traditional Ha-
waiian food consisting ofsliced raw fish marinated inAsian sauces and season-ings.This fish salad is oftenserved over rice and can belikened to Japanese sashi-mi. However, according toWong, the variety of sauc-es are what sets pok apartfrom sushi dishes.Steve Huynh,Wongs fi-
anc, will be preparing therestaurants pok bowls many of which will be cus-tom spins on traditionalHawaiian pok,made ac-cording to the diners tastesand preferences.Wong andHuynh have eaten pokstraight from its culturalsource, as much of Huynhsfamily lives in Hawaii andthe couple visits often.Were going to try to get
it as authentic as possiblebut fit the needs of peoplehere, saidWong.Pok Bars build-your-
own-bowl option will givefoodies a chance to trypok without venturing toofar outside of their com-fort zone.The restaurant isin the midst of finalizing itsmenu and is looking into of-fering special deals for stu-dents.Wong hopes the ab-sence of pok restaurantsin the city will draw in peo-ple who wouldnt other-wise have cause to visit SFUBurnaby. If we have Ha-waiian pok, because theresnothing in Burnaby, weregoing to bring in guests thatnormally wouldnt travel upthe mountain, she said.For updates on the res-
taurant, visit www.facebook.com/pokebar.van.

When youre called theWestCoast Express, you expect a quicktrip to reach your destination and if you happen to be a hockeyteam, you do it with flair.Unlike the oldVancouver Ca-
nucks line, this hockey team gotthe job done on the floor.The Express, a collection of 20
under-15 B.C. ball hockey players,motored through the competitionat last months Plzen Cup in theCzech Republic and bagged a title.The team, which includes four
Burnaby players, dominated thetourney but had a few close calls including the final where a latepenalty provided an element of ur-gency but was solved by a last-second insurance goal.I knew going in to this tourney
we had a strong team on the floorand off the floor, remarked coachand organizer Gary Slavin, whohas made 10 trips to the CzechRepublic for ball hockey tourna-ments. Respect, dignity and fo-cus was seen with every player.As
many of my groups overseas havebeen from u16 right up to mastermens, this was the first u15 teamtaken over and I was very hap-py with the entire trip from bothplayers and parents.The Canadians outlasted the
host Plzen HBC 3-1 in the final,successfully killing a penalty dur-ing the final minutes when onlyone goal separated the teams.Thelast goal was scored by Burna-bys Kaiden Johnson, who beat thebuzzer with an empty-net marker.For the players, the journey that
ended in a championship unfold-ed almost like a dream.The highlight (of) the trip for
me was just being around theteam both on and off the floor,said forwardTrevor OReilly, aBurnaby North Grade 9 student.The whole experience was amaz-ing and by the end of the trip I feltlike I had known my teammatesfor years.The best time had to bethe gold medal game when wewon and the whole team went cra-zy when the final buzzer went.The win was a product of team
toil, sweat and determination.
Getting to the final saw the Ex-press reel off five games in lessthan 48 hours, trumping PlzenHBC 3-1 in the opener, the Czechnational squad 10-0, and 4-1 overthe Slovakian Gajary Flames.They wrapped up the round robinwith a 4-0 win overTJ Blatna, set-ting the stage for a rematch withPlzen.All four Burnaby players
Dante Ballarin, Daniel Juca, John-son and OReilly made majorcontributions.As the team was se-lected in March and been playingtogether since April, team chem-istry was critical.All the pieces fellinto place quickly, said Slavin.Our Burnaby players were
great leaders in communicationwith other players and one wasrecognized for that as we namedDante Ballarin as one of our as-sistant captains, he said. Dantewas one of our top defenseman onboth sides of the ball. Kaiden andTrevor were great in the goal scor-ing department and Daniel is asolid set-up winger and played thefirst power play line.Their style ofplay easily was adapted to the style
of play that is needed overseas.Players were scouted and rec-
ommended by various Low-er Mainland ball hockey leagues,with the process also requiringfamilies who were interested insuch a costly trip.Slavin said the
preparation, both be-fore the tourney andduring,made theend result possible.It truly is a differ-
ent world there andfor a majority thathave never travelledto Europe, those firstdays were crucial inpreparing the team,said Slavin. The biggest adjust-ment for the players was playingon a plastic tile floor.All are use toplaying on arena concrete floors.The ball moves faster on the tile,as well the shots come off the floordifferent.Ballarin said that while there
was a general, road-trip feel on theflight to Prague, once they landedand began the process of prepar-ing for that first game, the target
became clear.Once we landed and visited
Prague (before the tournament)I think everyone began to real-ly think about it, said the NotreDame student and Burnaby mi-
nor hockey play-er. I think we wentover there thinkingwe were playing forCanadaWheth-er (the jersey read)West Coast Express,we thought we wereTeam Canada andthat was an incredi-ble special feeling.I felt a part of the
team from the firstpractice we had, we were alreadyjoking around and the bondingstarted there.At that moment Iknew it was going to be a good ex-perience, said OReilly.For Juca, the very first game of
the tournament was where a funtrip became a special mission.The highlight of my trip was
definitely the first game of thetournament, said Juca. We had
Playoff intensity:TheBurnabyLakers andNewWestminster Salmonbellies locked sticks inpeeweeC lacrosseplayoffs lastweek. Thevisiting Lakersemergedwitha12-5 victory.

been preparing for months,and for the whole time wewere visiting Prague it wasall we would talk about.The hype around this firstgame was immense, andwe ended up winning (3-1over host Plzen). Becauseit was my first ball hockeygame not played in Cana-da, and because I had beenwaiting for that momentfor months, it has to be thehighlight of my trip.All four Burnaby players
are sticking together to rep-resent B.C., as well as nineother members from theExpress, for the upcomingnationals.Slavin said the u15 trip
went so well, plans are al-ready being made for a re-peat trip. Coaches, playersand parents interested inlearning more about it cancontact him at email@example.com.
