TRANSCRIPT

  • The manhunt continues for the ren-egade dentist who practised illegallyin Burnaby and throughout the LowerMainland, as Tung Sheng (David) Wu wasfinally sentenced on Oct. 15.

    Early Tuesday morning, B.C. Supreme

    Court Associate Chief Justice AustinCullen sentenced Wu to three months jailtime for being in contempt of court for hisillegal dental practice. Wu has not beenpresent to any court proceeding and is stillin hiding.

    He is a person without honour orregard for Canadian civil society, saidJerome Marburg, CEO of the College ofDental Surgeons of B.C. He preyed on the

    vulnerable and put many peoples lives atrisk.

    Last August, the court found Wu inbreach of a 2003 court order prohibitinghim from practising dentistry and issueda warrant for his arrest and a permanentinjunction.

    I understand upwards of 450 peo-ple approached the health authorities,Marburg said about Wus former clients.

    Thats not nearly the amount of folks hewas preying on.

    The investigation and legal proceedingshas cost in excess of $140,000 to the col-lege, but that does not include the ongoingcosts, according to Marburg.

    Weve got to get him first, he saidabout recovering the cost to the college.That is the problem. Weve got to find

    Hear the words dance class, and youmight envision a row of tiny balleri-nas, hair pulled back into neat buns,pink tutus and ballet slippers at the ready asthey reach for the barre with small hands.

    You might not think of a room full of gig-gling, running, spinning munchkins, playingwith instruments, dancing with scarves andputting themselves through an obstacle course more often than not going off course andhaving to be steered back to the task at handby mommy or daddy.

    Then again, most of these tiny dancersarent quite two years old yet. And noneof them have any idea how many benefitstheyre getting out of being here at Cameron

    Recreation Centre on aMonday morning.

    This is ToddlersFirst Dance, a Burnabyparks and recreationprogram taught byMarcia Jones.

    It exposes littlepeople from the timetheyre confidently

    walking up to age two-and-a-half to the fun-damentals of movement and music.

    Its a cause near and dear to Joness heart.Shes a dancer and teacher who specializesin using movement to enhance early childhooddevelopment. And by early, she means trulyearly from infancy onwards. Long beforekids can walk, or even crawl, they can join adance class and learn, alongside their care-giver, ways to stimulate their development.

    We know now, the research is showing us,early movement is crucial for the developmentof certain parts of the brain, Jones says, not-ing that the lower brain and mid-brain regionsare all developing rapidly in the early months.

    Those parts of the brain really get cement-ed in the first year. The first year of life iswhen its really crucial, she says.

    Ideally, she says, all children cycle through

    six fundamental movement patterns as theirbrains develop and neural pathways areopened in the brain. What needs to happen foroptimum physical development, she says, isthat kids have the freedom to move throughthose patterns naturally not to be confinedin carseats, swings and bouncy chairs toomuch of the time.

    They need to be able to mobilize them-selves and work it out for themselves, shesays.

    Thats why she stresses independent move-ment on the floor, especially on the tummy, forthe two-month-to-crawling set in her Babys

    First Dance classes.If they dont get a chance to work all those

    things out in the first year, Jones says, kidsbrains are resilient: they will find a way tocompensate. But it may lead to movementthats not efficient or other problems that cropup later on.

    She points out that the young brain is con-stantly forming and changing, and as thebabies move into toddlerhood like this batchof youngsters creating organized chaos in theCameron Centres Hemlock Room theyreworking hard on balance and coordination.

    Its also important for toddlers to stimulatetheir vestibular s
