It was abundantly clear Monday nightthat Burnaby city council is not satisfiedwith Kinder Morgans response to their1,700 questions.
At the last meeting, council spent morethan an hour criticizing the energy com-panys reply to a 300-page informationrequest from the city. The request wassubmitted as part of the National EnergyBoard process thats examining KinderMorgans pipeline expansion plans.
Council claims that more than 62 percent of their questions were not answeredproperly or not answered at all and that 14per cent were only partially answered.
Coun. Nick Volkow compared KinderMorgans wholly inadequate responses
to the infamous my dog ate my home-work grade school excuse and likenedthe companys attitude to that of anotherHouston-based corporation mired in con-troversy.
Ive been around long enough toremember Enron, said Volkow. Twoof the principles got out just in time, andtheir names were Rich Kinder and BillMorgan.
There was a culture within Enron thatI think has been transposed into the com-pany were dealing with now. (Theres)
an absolute arrogant belief that theyredealing with a bunch of rubes up here, andthat what they were able to get away withdown in Houston, theyre going to be ableto get away with it here.
Among councils biggest concerns wasKinder Morgans apparent conditionsfor municipalities requesting to see theiremergency response plan, as brought upby Coun. Dan Johnston.
Vancouver was told specifically thatthat plan is not available, he said. They
Did the dog eat KinderMorgans homework?
Its summer, and that means its timefor all those fun things that comealong with the season from backyardbarbecues to road trips to weekends at thecabin. It also means its time to watch thebills mount up as you pay for the food,gas and tourist attractions attached to allthat fun.

Katherine Willett knows howhard it can be to care for a lovedone.
Her elderly mother developedmixed dementia, and Willettbecame her primary caregiver for17 years. The emotional toll washeavy.
There wasworry worrywhenher mom left a pot burning on thestove because she decided to cooksome potatoes but took a napinstead. There was impatience Willett grew short-tempered afterher mom lost all motivation todress herself, asking her daughterto do it. And there were tears alot of tears.
(One day) I came home, and Ijust started crying and crying andcrying, Willett says. It wasntbecause anything bad had hap-pened, it was more the realizationthat my mother, the woman Iknew as my mother, was in seri-ous decline, and she was goingto be dying sooner, rather thanlater.
One of the most heartbreakingmoments for Willett was whenshe moved her mother into anassisted living facility, knowingthat it was no longer safe for herto live at home.
We gave away a lot of herfurniture, and I remember theywere loading the van with herfurniture, and she started cry-ing, and I felt really bad, Willettrecalls.
That experience of caringfor her mother for nearly twodecades left a deep impressionon Willett, and she signed upfor the gerontology program atSimon Fraser University. Shebegan working with the BurnabySeniors Outreach Services Societyin 2009. Since then, she has beencoordinating educational work-shops and the annual caregivers
information and speakers fair,which draws an estimated 200to 300 people. Linda Comba, thesocietys program director, runs asupport group for family caregiv-ers. They meet every two weeks,and about 25 people participate.
The three-pronged program iswell attended, but it may be com-ing to an end, now that the UnitedWay is scaling back $1.65 million
in funding for seniors programs,due to a drop in donations.Comba learned in February thatthe United Way was not going torenew their grant.
I was in shock. I really was.I was devastated. We had beenled to understand our programwas pretty well respected by ourfunder, she says, adding that

There are times in all of ourlives when we need help. Maybe adisaster has struck a devastatingillness, a fire, an accident. Maybewe have a cause or charity wewant to support. Or perhaps weare that proverbial person whohas everything and we want tocelebrate a special milestone in ourlives by paying it forward.
Glacier Media, which owns theBurnaby NOW, wants to be there tohelp, too. It is launching FundAid,a crowdfunding initiative that tapsinto its member newspapers deep
ties to their communities.The biggest challenge in any
crowdfunding campaign is get-ting the word out, says MarthaPerkins, a former newspaper edi-tor who is spearhead-ing FundAid. Thatswhat were good at. Ournewspapers are built ona strong tradition of shar-ing stories and informa-tion that matter to ourreaders.
Perkins is available to helpindividuals and groups come upwith effective FundAid campaignsthat will better ensure their suc-cess and will let editors know ofcampaigns that might be of par-ticular interest to their readers.
Member newspapers will also berunning weekly ads for FundAidand will help spread theword through their socialmedia channels.
We see thisas a way to dosome good inour communi-ties, says AlvinBrouwer, thepresident ofGlacier Medias
community digital mediaand newspapers in theLowerMainland. GlacierMedia has so many resources thatcan be put to work to help peopleraise the money that they need.
FundAid is partnering with
Fundrazr, a Vancouver-basedcompany that recently won the
City of VancouverExcellence Award forsmall technology com-panies. Fundrazr hascreated a dynamic plat-form that makes it easyto create a campaign andspread the word throughsocial media.
Local businesses canget involved, too, byoffering perks or spon-soring the service fees fora campaign.

could sign a confidentiality agreement and look at it, butonce they look at it, they couldnt comment or do any-thing with it.
Mayor Derek Corrigan highlighted the issue further,noting that not only would they have to keep quiet aboutthe plan, but that they would have to agree to accept theplan before ever laying eyes on it.
Im astounded by the answers and the logic behindthe answers, arguing that their emergency response planis proprietary, said Corrigan. How can the NationalEnergy Board, who are supposed to be intelligent people,put up with answers like that?
It appears that were just being dismissed, and that isastounding.
Greg McDade, the citys legal counsel, called the ongo-ing review process highly irregular, noting that thequestion period for Enbridges Northern Gateway pipe-line allowed intervenors to cross examine the responses.
Here, the National Energy Board has told us there willbe no such opportunity, and in fact, this is the only waythe public can ask questions, he said. There are two con-clusions we can draw from this: This application is simplynot ready. Its not complete.
The second conclusion is, theyre really contemptu-ous of the process. They dont expect there to be any hardquestions because all the hard questions are going to bedeferred until after approval.
McDade noted there will be one more round of infor-mation requests in the coming months, though Corrigancontinued to state how unimpressed he has been withKinder Morgans answers to date.
Their nonchalant approach to serious questions acrossthe board from municipalities, not-for-profits, citizens,even the provincial government either they dontreally care about winning this application, which seemsunlikely, or theyre absolutely satisfied in whatever theydo that they will win this application. How else could youdescribe this pitiful effort to respond to what were veryserious, very important questions being asked by our staffand many other people across British Columbia in regardto this proposal?
the UnitedWay is choosing to focus on the Better at Homeprogram instead.
Funding for the caregivers program ran out at the endof June; it costs $50,000 a year to run, and the society ishoping to keep it going.
It really isnt that much, Comba says. Its such adribble, and it does so much good for people.
Willett says caring for the caregivers is paramount withan aging population and the provincial governmentspush to keep seniors at home longer.
The Ministry of Health has this philosophy of homeis best. Theyre trying to keep people home longer andlonger. That means more work for family caregivers, shesays. However, the longer seniors stay at home, thehigher the incidence of developing complex care needs.That means family caregivers will be caring for themlonger and also in more complex situations. Its kind of adouble-edged sword.
The society is looking for funding elsewhere, but itsdifficult when similar programs are competing for thesame limited resources.
Burnaby Seniors Outreach Services Society haslaunched an online crowd-funding campaign, in partner-ship with Glacier Media, in hopes of keeping the caregiv-ers program alive. The society is hoping to raise enoughmoney to cover the next year, which will buy time to findalternative funding.
To donate, go to www.fundaid.ca and type SOS forBurnaby caregivers in the search window.
The demand can only increase with the numbers ofseniors who are going to be requiring more care, Combasays. The stress levels are already high and will onlyincrease with the changes in community services.

Residents in the areasurrounding BurnabyHospital are hoping apetition will be the keyto bringing much-neededchange to a traffic problemthey say is only going toget worse.
The four-way stop atKincaid Street and SmithAvenue, which is nestledin Burnabys Cascade-Schou neighbourhoodnear Burnaby Hospital, is adisaster waiting to happen,according to residents inthe area.
Jim Favaro and his wife,Karen, have lived in thearea since 1986 and havewatched the populationballoon around them. Thefour-way stop at KincaidStreet and Smith Avenue isno longer sufficient enoughto control the amount oftraffic that flows in and outof the area, so Favaro isasking that the city install atraffic light in its place.
Weve seen the area gothrough a lot of change, hesays. Earlier on, the four-way stops were adequateto meet the needs of thecommunity, but the com-munity has grown quite abit, as well as the trafficand the through traffic.
Favaro said SmithAvenue has become amuch-used alternative toBoundary Road and thecars that travel up anddown the avenue are in
such a hurry that pedestri-ans really have to hustle tocross safely.
The pedestrians aredodging the cars and thedrivers, theyre urgent toget to work and there justisnt enough time, he said.People will cross and a carwill dash right behind themas soon as theyre clear.
This is particularlytroubling for Favaro. Hebelieves the fast-pacedintersection is a dangerto pedestrians, especiallyseniors who need a littleextra time crossing thestreet.
Our population isaging, the folks with mobil-ity issues, they just cantcross that quickly, he said.A four-way cross in thepast may have been suf-ficient, however to meetthe needs of the commu-nity now, we need a trafficlight.
Favaro, who usesthe crosswalk on a dailybasis to walk his son toand from Cascade HeightsElementary School, haswitnessed several what hecalls, near hits but onJune 30, the near hit didntmiss.
Favaros neighbourMike Bhangu was hit bya car while he was cross-ing the four-way stop atKincaid Street and SmithAvenue at about 5:45 p.m.
Favaro arrived at thescene shortly after Bhanguwas struck and helpedother area residents tend to
Bhangu and call police andmedical personnel.
This, unfortunately,is not a rare occurrence,he said. But it was real-ly encouraging to see somany people stopping tohelp someone who wasinjured.
Luckily, Bhangu sur-vived without any majorinjuries, but the experiencewas the final spark need-ed to prompt Favaro intoaction.
Later that day, Favaroput together an online peti-tion to garner support forthe installation of a trafficlight at Smith Avenue andKincaid Street. The petitionalready has 72 signatures,more than Favaro expect-ed.
On Sept. 2, Favaro and
his neighbours will be atthe city council meeting topresent the results of thepetition and officially rec-ommend that Mayor DerekCorrigan and city coun-cillors approve the instal-lation of a traffic light atSmith Avenue and KincaidStreet.
Staff told Favaro theissue will be brought bystaff to council on July 21for information only.
We have to highlightfor city hall that the needis here I think our causeis just and we can defendwhy we need a light there,Favaro said.
To sign the petition tohave a traffic light installedat Kincaid Street and SmithAvenue visit, www.ipeti-tions.com/petition/smith-
and-kincaid-traffic-light.A Facebook group has
also been started for discus-
sion on the issue at www.facebook.com/smithkincaidtrafficlight.

Anyone who has beenpaying attention to theevolution of First Nationsrights and powers in B.C. overthe past 20 years or so shouldnot be surprised by the recentSupreme Court of Canada deci-sion that recognized a specificaboriginal title.
Nevertheless,given the dire warn-ings from some ofeconomic chaos that will resultfrom the historic decision, thereis reason to be concerned aboutits impact on B.C.s economy.
The high court resolved whatstarted out in 1983 as a disputeover a logging licence, but whichevolved into a landmark caseabout the aboriginal title rightsof a specific First Nations, in thisinstance the Tsilhqotin Nationin the Chilcotin region of theInterior.
The concept of aboriginaltitle was first established by theSupreme Court of Canada morethan 40 years ago, in the Caldervs. B.C. case. But the recent deci-sion represents the first time inhistory the high court has for-mally declared aboriginal title toexist in a specified area.
The decision potentiallygives First Nations that establishtitle (not an easy task) a vetoover activities on their land.Where title is established, theconsent of the First Nation bandin question must first be gainedbefore those activities can pro-ceed.
The high court did providean escape clause of sorts for gov-ernments. If a government meetsa three-pronged test, it can over-ride the lack of First Nationsconsent.
The test is a potentiallyrigorous one: a government
must fully show it hasconsulted and accom-modated First Nationsinterests, the proposed
action must be compellingand substantial for the public(which includes First Nations)good, and that the governmentis consistent with its fiduciaryobligations to First Nations.
But the court also refer-enced a previous decision(Delgamuukw) in citing specificactivities that can potentiallyinfringe on aboriginal title, andthey include forestry, mining,infrastructure, environmentalprotection and the general eco-nomic development of the inter-ior of British Columbia.
So while the decision pro-vides clarity and, eventually,certainty over issues pertainingto First Nations rights and pow-ers, it didnt vastly reshape thelandscape on this matter.
An analysis by the Osler lawfirms aboriginal law group(entitled: The Sky is NotFalling) notes this. Despitethe significant media attentionthat the recent Supreme Court ofCanada decision has received,

Developers needFirst Nations OK
Kinder Morgan president speaksDear Editor:
Re: City upset over Kinder Morgan pipeline fees,Burnaby NOW, Friday, July 4.
Over the past several days various media out-lets have reported on a report prepared by RobynAllan related to the development cost funding ofKinder Morgans proposed expansion of the TransMountain Pipeline.
The stories and the report in no way present a fullexplanation of the facts. Let me attempt to describethe fairly complex arrangement that is in place.
In 2008, Trans Mountain found itself facinga growing and unprecedented demand from itsshippers for tanker loadings at its Burnaby facility.
As our pipeline also serves the important LowerMainland gasoline market, and the refinery mar-ket in Washington State, the amount of oil we candeliver to our dock in Burnaby is limited.
At the same time, our shippers were attemptingto grow offshore markets, and the monthly biddingprocess that determined who got access to the lim-ited dock space did not provide the certainty theyneeded to develop these offshore markets.
The solution Trans Mountain proposed, and wassupported by our shippers, was we would auc-tion space at the dock to the highest bidder for a10-year period. This process resulted in five of ourshippers securing this firm service at premiumsover the normal pipeline toll.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
The fees collected by Trans Mountainfor this service are on average $1.45/bar-rel, or roughly $28 million per year.
Rather than keeping this additionalrevenue, Trans Mountain agreed with itsshippers, to put the money in reserveto help pay for system improvements,including expansion development plans.The real long-term solution to the pipelineconstraints that lead to the firm serviceoffering is the expansion of the pipeline asis currently being proposed.
The agreement we struck with our ship-pers was the firm service fees would coverdevelopment cost risk for the project, andthey would be used to reduce the ultimatetotal cost of the project if it was approvedand built by late 2017.
If we are successful in getting the proj-ect approved, approximately $136 millionwill have been set aside to credit againstthe total cost of $5.4 billion.
If the project does not proceed, the firmservice fees will offset much of the antici-pated development cost, and any cost inexcess of fees collected will be shared withour shippers.
For large projects such as this, shipperbackstopping of development costs is not
uncommon.In this case, we agreed to use the fee
that shippers volunteered to pay for allimportant increased capacity to B.C.,Washington State and tidewater towardsthe development cost.
Ms. Allan is correct in that the fees paidby those few shippers will be treated as anexpense for them, and they are not consid-ered revenue to the pipeline.
However, the important fact she over-looks is that the revenue realized by theshipper for those exported barrels willultimately be higher than they couldotherwise attract selling into the NorthAmerican market.
Otherwise, they would never volun-tarily pay more for the firm dock service.The shipper, and the Canadian economy,is net better off by exporting the barrel andaccessing a world price that exceeds theNorth American price.
I have continued to attempt to conveythe facts about our pipeline expansionplans and will continue to do so in the faceof opponents who prefer to misrepresentthe facts in order to sway the publicsopinion.

First Nations: Can shut down projectsit represents a reiterationof established law regard-ing aboriginal title that hasbeen developed over dec-ades, it said.
Another prominentlaw firm, MacMillan LLP,had this to say: Withthe exception of clarify-ing what is required toestablish occupation, thedecision does not make sig-nificant changes to the lawof aboriginal title as it hascome to exist over the lastseveral decades.
In B.C., the reality on theground for the past decadeor so is that First Nationshave had a de facto vetoover many significant activ-ities on land claimed asancestral.
Increasingly, both theprovincial government andprivate sector companieshave realized this and havehad to ensure that FirstNations support is secured not ignored before pro-ceeding with a particulardevelopment. And, really,
what is the problem withthat?
Not having First Nationssupport can frustrate oreven block a particulardevelopment (hello there,Northern Gateway pipe-line). The courts decisionwould seem to cement thisreality along more definedlines.
However, while the B.C.government and manycompanies doing businesshere are aware of this, thetrouble is that many out-side interests are not andthey (i.e. potential capitalinvestors) may well bethinking that the sky hasindeed fallen, particularly ifthey pay more attention tomedia coverage than legalanalyses. This is whereconcerns about the impacton the provincial economyarise. It may well be thatan investment chill maydevelop in this province,as potential investors nerv-ously wonder whether itssafe to invest in a projectwhere the backing of the
First Nations concerned isnot secured, or not certain.
It seems likely that theinvestment world may beunsettled for a period oftime, as many things flow-ing from this decision sortthemselves out. There areoutstanding questions:what happens to overlap-ping land claims when itcomes to establishing titleis an example of just one.
In the meantime, itmay be wise and prudentfor any natural resourcedeveloper to secure thesupport, if not the out-right partnership, of FirstNations before proceeding which is often the casetoday anyways.
While theres no doubtthe Supreme Court decisionis historic and significant,British Columbia has beenmoving in the decisionsdirection for some timenow. The sky is not falling,folks, but it may have somestorm clouds for a while.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Leave speed limits aloneDear Editor:
The B.C. government wants to raise thecurrent speed limits on some of our high-ways by 10 kilometres per hour.
I have read a few articles in reference tothe issue, and, frankly, Im still unsure onthe real purpose of their madness.
Are we becoming such a fast-paced soci-ety that gaining approximately 10 to 15minutes on a 400-kilometre trip is going tomake a difference?
A vast majority of drivers already sur-pass the speed limits by anywhere between10 to 20 w/h, and this, I believe, wouldcontinue to be the scenario over and abovethe new increased speed limit.
Im convinced we have nothing to gainby this futile and outrageous change. Onthe contrary, wewill increase our consump-tion of gas, we will increase the emission ofgreenhouse gases and, more importantly,the number of fatal accidents.
Leave our speed limits alone. Life in thefast lane is nothing more than destructive.Lets take a deep breath, slow down andenjoy our trips.

Re: Should new SkyTrain renos includewashrooms?, Burnaby NOW, June 27.
The claim by TransLink that its mandateis public transportationwithoutwashroomsis false. At least all bus loops are providedwith private staff washrooms that have tobe maintained and secured. It would not betoo much of a stretch, then, for TransLink toprovide public washrooms.
If cost and security are top of TransLinkscorporatemind, thenwashroomusers couldbe required to insert their Compass Card
into a smart lock on the door of a cubicle.A small fee would be debited from thecard; and the identity of the user might betracked for security and crime preventionpurposes.

Teachers greed to blameDear Editor:
Re: Christy Clark to blame, Letters to theEditor, Burnaby NOW, July 4.
Christy Clark is not to blame for theteachers strike it is called teachers greed.
The government of Saskatchewan ispresently involved with contract negotia-tionswith teachers. The last teacher contractended on Aug. 31, 2013, and negotiationsare still going on. A 6.5 per cent wageincrease over four years offered in October2013 was rejected by the teachers even afterthe Saskatchewan Teachers Federation toldteachers to vote yes.
A second offer of 7.3 per cent over fouryears was also rejected in June even afterthe union told the teachers to vote yes.
What is ironic here is that theSaskatchewan Teachers Federationnegotiated new contracts twice with theSaskatchewan government, advising theteachers to accept the offers, but still theteachers would not listen to their union.
In summary, it all boils down to thefact that the majority of school teachersare greedy, and that Saskatchewan schoolteachers are more greedy than their coun-terpart teachers in B.C.
What is amazing is even without a wageincrease, most teachers are paid excellentwages and benefits and cannot seem torealize that they only have to work 188 daysper year, where the rest of us must work238 days per year. Unbelievable, as they allhave a university education.

Burnaby school officialssay revenue lost with thecancellation of the schooldistricts summer schoolprogram could pale in com-parison to lost internationalstudent fees if theongoing teacherslabour disputecontinues into thenext school year.
S u m m e rschool, excludinginternational stu-dents, was expect-ed to break abouteven this year,with $2.1 mil-lion in estimatedrevenue and justunder $2 million in bud-geted expenses.
International studentfees were expected to totalan additional $250,000.
The district is still work-ing out how the lost rev-enue will compare with themoney it saved on teacherswages during strike days.
The education ministry
has said districts will beable to keep 20 per cent ofthat money.
Once these figures areknown we may be able tooffset any summer schoollosses against any net sav-ings we are able to retainat the district level, super-intendent Kevin Kaardalsaid.
He said the revenue thedistrict lost from interna-tional students was smallcompared to districtswith bigger programs like
Hes more wor-ried about theimpact the labourdispute could haveon the districtsinternational pro-gram during theregular schoolyear, which isexpected to bringin $14.3 millionand cost about $8
million next year.That has a huge impact
on the potential for thebudget if were not up andrunning in September,Kaardal said. The impactis much smaller now.
Its an issue that goesbeyond Burnaby, he said.
Its a matter of reputa-tion, he said. This labour
dispute is putting the wholereputation of internationaleducation in a global mar-ket for British Columbia atrisk.
And that loss of reputa-tion could seriously impact
the districts bottom line.The district is very reli-
ant on international studentrevenues, secretary-trea-surer Greg Frank told theNOW in an email. Theserevenues enhance sig-
nificantly the educationalservices we can afford toprovide all of our studentsas well as the employmentopportunities for our staff.

week after talks between theB.C. Teachers Federationand the B.C. Public SchoolEmployers Associationfailed to stop the ongoingteacher strike from continu-ing into the summer.

Turtle alert!An endangered Western
painted turtle was recentlyspotted near the outdoorriding arena at BurnabyLake, and the Ministry ofForests, Lands and NaturalResources Operations saysit was likely looking for asuitable place to nest.
The turtle was spottedby the NOW on June 26at the Burnaby HorsemenAssociation facilities onthe east side of BurnabyLake. A biologist with theMinistry of Forests, Landsand Natural ResourcesOperations confirmed theturtle was in fact an endan-gered Western paintedturtle, the only indigenouspond turtle left in the prov-ince.
When the NOW spot-ted the turtle at the endof June, it appeared con-tent wandering aroundthe equestrian facilities,including the large outdoorring adjacent to the parkinglot at the Avalon entranceto Burnaby Lake. In fact,the horses were more con-
cerned about the turtlerather than the other wayaround.
The female turtleappeared to be looking fora suitable place to nest, butaccording to the ministrysbiologist, the bark mulchin the arena wouldnt bethe best place for it. Theturtles prefer sandier loca-tions, as the bark mulchwould likely be too warmunderground, where theeggs are kept.
According to the minis-try, the turtle was probablydigging a test pit to see ifshe could nest in themulch.The following week, how-ever, there was no trace ofa nest and it was doubtfulshe actually laid any eggsin the riding area.
If she had chosen thatparticular spot that wouldhave meant a more than130-metre trek to BurnabyLake for her roughly 13offspring.
The ministry biolo-gist said that if the turtlehad nested in the arena,she would have moved theeggs to the nesting beach onthe edge of Burnaby Lake.The move would give thehatchlings a better chanceof survival, while they ges-tate and when they hatch.
The Ministry of Forests,Lands and Natural
Resources Operations iscurrently monitoring about33 nests at Burnaby Lake,each of which holds about13 eggs. The eggs willbegin hatching sometimein August.

Q. Which features should be improved inmyhomein order to give a good first impression to a buyer?
A. This is the best time of the year to boost your homescurb appeal! A few seemingly small changes can have a largeimpact and grab the attention of neighbours and potentialbuyers who pass by. Simple home maintenance such ascleaning your windows, gutters and pressure washing thesiding and deck will freshen up the exterior. Install accentslike a new front door, house numbers, railings, or even yourmailbox will be noticed. Mow your lawn at least once a weekand plant a variety of colourful flowers along the walkways.
Many potential buyers drive by a home first before scheduling a viewing. Since many do so inthe evening after work, consider installing lights along your driveway or walkway or adding adecorative light fixture to the front to enhance the features of the house. Always remember,if youwant to sell your home, it helps to put yourself in the buyers shoes.

Q. What are the benefits of wearing twohearingaids?
A.The answer to this question varies from oneindividual to the next and only a proper diagnostichearing test will determine whether you shouldbe wearing one or two hearing aids. The majorityof the population however would benefit fromwearing two hearing aids.
There are several important reasons to consider wearing two hearingaids versus one hearing aid. They include; better hearing in noise,the ability to localize sounds, more clarity, prevention of auditorydeprivation, and ease of listening and balance.
We are born with two ears for all these reasons. If you hadproblems seeing clearly from both eyes, would you wear amonacle?

A. Looks like you have a Nickel Allergy. 1 in 10people have nickel allergies. Some are allergicsince childhood and others develop it over time.Many clients come in and tell us they have neverhad metal allergies and now suddenly they get a
rash. Over time, allergies can develop. The bad news is that once youare allergic to nickel, you will stay allergic although you may become lesssensitive over time. Most white gold and sterling silver alloys are madewith nickel. We recommend that you come in and see your jeweller anddiscuss other metals that you can safely wear. In some cases, you canplate your existing ring with rhodium and that may act as a barrier andstop the itching. In the worst case, we may have to re-make your ring inPalladium, Platinum or nickel free white gold.

Q. Myallergiesare reallybotheringme-whatallergymedicationwould you recommend?
A. There are several types of allergy medications currently onthe market. First-generation medications, like Benadryl and Chlor-tripolon, work well to reduce itchiness but can cause drowsiness andshould only be taken at night. Benadryl is the worst offender fordrowsiness, but this can be a positive thing if you have trouble sleepingdue to allergies. Chlor-tripolon causes mild drowsiness, but with thisdrug, individuals usually build tolerance against this side effect andcan take it during the day.Second-generation antihistamines, including Claritin, Aerius,
Reactine, and Allegra, are all very similar and alleviate most allergy symptoms with the exceptionof congestion. If congestion is your main allergy symptom, a combination decongestant withantihistamine and pseudoephedrine in it might be more appropriate for you. A side effect of thecombination decongestant is that they have a tendency to keep you awake and raise blood pressureif taken too close to bedtime. Another option to alleviate congestion is a prescription nasal spray.Prescription nasal sprays work well and are much safer than the over-the-counter nasal sprays thatcause rebound congestion if overused. All the second-generation antihistamines are non-drowsy;however, Reactine has been known to cause drowsiness in some individuals. After using the sameallergy medication for a period of time, your body may build tolerance to the effects and it would bebest to switch to a different brand.For all your allergy needs, please come into Target Pharmacy Metrotown, where I would love todiscuss all of your allergy options with you.

Q. Whydomyold silverfillings lookblack?A. The silver (amalgam) fillings that were used for manyyears contained a mixture of metal alloy containing silver,tin, copper and mercury. As with many metals that areexposed to a wet environment, they will begin to breakdown and oxidize, often times turning black. When thishappens, the filling itself is weakened and shrinks, whichallows bacteria to enter the gaps and create new decay. Yourregular exam and hygiene visits allow us to check any fillings
you have and look for new leakage and decay.Our office has elected to no longer use silver (amalgam) fillings for our patients, followingmany studies and concerns related to the mercury they contain. In 2007 when our newofficewas built we followed protocol requiring the installment of amercury trap to containand collect any waste from old fillings. This is then removed from our office on a routinebasis and handled by a Biohazard waste specialist group to ensure safe disposal.Many of our patients comment that they really like the look of their newwhite (composite)fillings as it returns their teeth to a more natural looking state. We hope this makes themsmile a lot more too.
Is it time to check your old fillings to make sure they are safe and healthy?

Q.Are fruits andvegetablesgood for dogs?
A. Dogs are carnivores but theiranatomy and feeding habits are thoseof omnivores. There is a definite placefor fruits and vegetables in providinga balanced dog diet.Most balancedcommercial dog foods incorporatefruits and vegetables in them. Fruits
and vegetables can also be used as low-caloriesnacks for dogs. It is best towash and peel fruits;and remove pits before feeding to your dog. Boilingvegetables makes themmore digestible.

Soccer Selects strike gold at A CupsThe Burnaby Selects won two
of three B.C. Soccer Provincial ACup finals.
The under-13 Selects won theirfirst A Cup title, eking out a 1-0 victory over Lower Mainlandrival Surrey Guildford United atBurnaby Lake Sports Complex-West on Sunday.
The u-15 Selects tasted gold fora third consecutive time, comingback from a one-goal deficit toeventually win 3-2 in a shootoutover Surrey FC Pegasus.
The u-16Selects had tosettle for thesilver medalfollowing a 3-1defeat to SurreyGuildford also
at Burnaby Lake-West.The u-13s got on the board
early, scoring in the opening min-ute from Justin Petkovic, whotook a through ball from RichardCulleton and put it through thegoalkeepers legs from six yardsout for what stood up as the cup-winner.
The win came as a measure ofrevenge for Burnaby, which lost tothe Surrey side in the Coastal Cupearlier this season.
I was happy we beat them inthe provincials, said Petkovic.
U-13 coach Scott Stefanek saidplaying at home was a big factorin the teams preparation for thebig game.
All these thingswe couldnt doat the Coastal Cup, said Stefanek.The boys came together at theright time.
Nicolas Sanchez also made hispresence felt at the right time forthe u-15s.
Sanchez scored both goals forthe Selects, tying the match on
two separate occasions, includinga late second-half scramble thatsent the game into extra time.
His first tied the game 1-1 mid-
way through the second half. Theextra time was scoreless.
Sanchez also scored the teamsfourth goal in the shootout that
went Burnabys way 5-3.Devon Sandhu scored the cup-
clincher for Burnaby, while keep-er Jason Negus got a left hand ona shot from the spot to earn thewin.
The u-15s finished secondin the Metro league to SurreyPegasus and while qualifying forthe provincials were left out ofthis years Coastal Cup.
The Selects more than made upfor it at the provincials.
Burnaby won its group withouta goal scored against, including atight 1-0 win over Peg earlier inthe competition.
This year, the history started.(Surrey Pegasus and us) play thegame quite hard, very similar-ly, said Burnaby assistant coachMario Montagliani. Were twogood teams. It could have goneeither way. Our impact playersshowed up.
What was perhaps more grati-fying thanwinning a third straightProvincial A Cup title was howthey did it, Montagliani added.
We lost 10 players to the highperformance league in the last12 months and we still managedto get back here. Thats the mostsatisfying.
The u-16 Selects were disap-pointed following their matchagainst Surrey.
Daniel Johnson scored first, tak-ing a through ball in the clear andbeating the Surrey keeper with awell-directed touch.
But Guildford took the leadwith a pair of goals in the secondhalf, before icing the win with athird tally late in the period.
The Burnaby Selects also field-ed a Metro league girls team inthe u-16 division at the A Cup.
The Coastal Cup championsfailed to make it through to thegold-medal round, finishinggroup play with a 1-2-0 record.

Jr. Lakers finish positive season with a flurry
The junior A Burnaby Lakers went out witha great, big bang.
The Lakers finished up their B.C. JuniorLacrosse League season with fireworks at theBill Copeland Sports Centre, outscoring theNanaimo Timbermen 17-12 to finish in a tiefor sixth place.
Burnaby NOWs league rookie of the year,Tyler Vogrig, scored an unofficial league-highfive goals and eight assists to lead the Lakers.
Dave Mather, who gave up 12 goals on 30shots in the first two period, buckled down inthe final frame, blanking the T-Men the rest ofthe way.
The win, Burnabys fifth of the season, wasa watermark in many ways for the resurgentclub that was almost a dead franchise lastyear.
In the last three weeks, they played somegreat lacrosse, said first-year Burnaby coachBrad Parker, whose systems and demeanor
helped put the club back on track. Theyrealready talking about next year. Last year, theywere talking about getting as far away fromthis place.
But, thats all changed.Burnaby finished with a record of 5-15-1,
but the final game proved in many ways theLakers regard themselves as winners.
One example was the return of rookie right-hander Aiden Milburn, who missed much ofthe second half of the season with a shoulderinjury. Milburn risked further injury, returningto the lineup for the final game and scored his34th goal of the year.
Burnabys knocked-up back end playedNanaimo with just two regular defenders butclamped down in the final period to help shutout the T-Men.
You know what? They did what they weretold. Our goalkeeper and our offence camethrough, said Parker. In the last three weeks,weve been in every game we played. Andalthough we ran out of bodies, they have someconfidence and they didnt want to leave the
floor tonight.That rare sight in junior lacrosse was in
many ways the most telling observation ofthem all.
It was a lot of fun and a good group ofguys, said Australian-born Matt Shields, wholives in Seattle and plays the field game inNorth Carolina. Shields scored a career-highfour goal for Burnaby, including a natural hattrick in the middle period that tied the contestat 12-12.
Matthew Bailey, who stepped in for captainPeyton Lupul in the final game, said It wasgood to be competitive and a lot more posi-tive.
Weve done two things, Parker added.We built confidence and weve built a systemfor them to play in. It took a while, buttheyve accepted both. For a coach, its prettyrewarding. Theyre looking at next year.
But the final word went to Mather, whocarried much of the load for the Lakers and
