Parts of Alpha Second-ary School could meet thewrecking ball in a matterof weeks with the start ofa $27.2-million partial re-placement of the school.School officials and Burn-aby North MLA RichardLee were at Alpha Mon-day morning for the offi-cial ground breaking on theproject and to unveil designplans.The project, scheduledfor completion in fall 2018,involves the replacement oftwo classroom wings andseismic upgrades to the restof the school.The district had origi-nally hoped to see 60-year-old Alpha replaced entirelybut was told by the provincefunding wasnt available.Its not a new school, butgiven the limitations of thebudget, its the best possibleoutcome, principal PaulFester told theNOW.The project will increasethe schools student capaci-ty from 1,025 to 1,100.Besides a new classroomblock, the school will alsoget a new science superlab six classrooms thatwill open up onto a large labfor experiments and a newlearning commons to re-place the current library.Unlike a traditional li-brary, the learning com-mons will have fixed shelvesonly along the walls, whileall the shelves in the mid-dle of the space will be onwheels.You can actually re-cre-ate the space for whatev-er kind of learning oppor-tunities you need, Festersaid. Im not even goingto predict what were go-ing to do in it because wewant it to be very flexible, so especially as the new cur-riculums coming up wecan go ahead and use it inwhichever way our teacherscan imagine.The project will also bringmuch needed technologi-cal upgrades to the school,including a proper fibre-op-tic backbone and improvedWi-Fi.In the next two to fourWEDNESDAY JUNE 22, 2016 LOCAL NEWS LOCAL MATTERSCITY 5 NEWS 9 COMMUNITY 11Car meet controversy MP wants new housing strategy Baby crows reunitedTheres more at Burnabynow.comAlphagetting$27.2milmakeoverEDUCATIONONYOURMARKS:Theannualwife-carrying contest attheScandinavianMidsummerFestivalwasahit again thisyear.

Atright, these twoareusing theEstoniancarryingmethod.PHOTOSJENNIFERGAUTHIERPressingfornewrulesByJeremyDeutschjdeutsch@burnabynow.comIts a problem that boththe construction industryand work safety organiza-tions have been trying to geta handle on for years.Exposure to asbestosis not only dangerous forworkers in the constructionindustry, but also the gener-al public.In light of the dangers,Burnaby city council is hop-ing to put pressure on theprovincial government bypassing a resolution callingfor mandatory certificationand licensing of asbestosand hazardous material re-moval contractors.Along with the resolution,the city is sending a letter tothe provincial governmentand the Premier with the re-quest.Asbestos was a popu-lar building material for de-cades, but exposure to thefibre is linked to several dis-eases, including lung cancer.Coun. Sav Dhaliwal, whomade the motion at Mon-days council meeting, saidcertification for asbestos re-moval is a longstanding is-sue, adding there isnt ade-quate protection for workersin the industry.I think the situation hasbecome so serious, when welook at the stats, the numberof deaths and other illness-es, we need to have someaction on it, he said, not-ing asbestos exposure is theleading cause of work-relat-ed deaths in B.C.The city councillor alsopointed out there is current-ly no provincial certificationor licensing in B.C. to en-sure standards or allow forthe suspension of non-com-pliant contractors.Dhaliwal did suggestthere should be time andreasonable notice for the in-dustry to adjust to any regu-lations.An association that rep-resents the construction in-dustry said it welcomescertification for asbestos re-moval contractors, but ar-gued it may not be enoughto address the issue.Dave Baspaly, the presi-dent of the Council ofCITYNEWS TapwatergettingbetterBurnaby residents willbe happy to know the H20that comes out of their tapsevery day is pretty darngood.OnMonday, the citysannual drinking wa-ter quality monitoring re-port for 2015 was present-ed to council, which foundoverall the water quality inBurnaby continues to im-prove over previous years.In 2015, a total of 2,900routine drinking water sam-ples were obtained in Burn-aby for bacteriological anal-ysis; 1,617 samples weretaken by city staff and an-other 1,283 samples col-lected by MetroVancou-ver staff.According to the report,there was no E. coli detect-ed in any of the potable wa-ter sampled.At no time didthe percentage of samplesthat tested positive for co-liform exceed the 10 percent stipulated in provincialwater regulations.The report also not-ed 93 per cent of the sam-ples taken met chlorine re-sidual objectives, while thepH (physical/chemical), vi-nyl chloride and the disin-fection by-products mea-sured as trihalomethanes,bromochloromethanes andhaloacetic acids were foundto be below federal guide-lines.The city continues toprovide excellent drinkingwater to its citizens, saidCoun.Anne Kang, whoadded when she hosts out-of-town guests, she getshigh praise for the tap wa-ter.She also encouraged resi-dents to conserve water inlight of last summers dryweather, noting the city hasrain barrels available for usein gardens.Mayor Derek Corriganlamented over the popular-ity of bottled water, notingpeople will pay as much asthey do for a litre of gaso-line for water thats no bet-ter than what comes outthe tap. He argued stickingto tap water not only savesmoney, but also oil thatsused in producing plasticbottles.If you ever see thoseplastic bottles in our lakesand rivers you know whatdamage they can do, Cor-rigan said.The city will continue toreplace aging water mains,undertake routine flushingof water mains and moni-tor water as part of its waterimprovement program. By Jeremy DeutschBrakesputonlocalcarmeetByJeremyDeutschjdeutsch@burnabynow.comTheres no shortage ofhigh-end souped-up ridesrunning around the Low-er Mainland, and one of thebigger gatherings for car fa-natics has been at BurnabysMarket Crossing shoppingcentre.For years, onThursdayswhen the weather was nicein the summer, the marketsparking lot played host to anunsanctioned car meet.Atits height, hundreds of carswould show up, with own-ers showing off their wheels.But the meet, at least atMarket Crossing, appears tobe coming to an end.After receiving a num-ber of complaints from bothcustomers and businesses,the shopping centres man-agement recently decided toclamp down on the meet.JulieWright, the mallsproperty manager withWestbank Projects Corp.,said some of the customersfelt intimated by the crowdsor couldnt find parking.She also noted some ofthe people attending themeet were engaging in ag-gressive behavior, includingpublic drunkenness, racingand doing burnouts.Ive tried to reach outto these groups, but no onewants to take responsibili-ty for the group, and no onewants to talk to the man-ager of the mall to discussa better resolution for this,Wright told theNOW. Itwas becoming such a safetyissue we felt like we had togo beyond just having a se-curity presence.In March, aYouTube vid-eo surfaced showing a fightat one of the meets.So in the last few weeks,management has hired a se-curity team to set up at theentrances to explain to any-one coming to the car meetthat the event is not allowedand the mall is on privateproperty.Wright said the mes-sage appears to be gettingthrough, noting last weekhardly anyone showed upfor the meet. She said shesheard through social me-dia the car group has movedtheir event to another loca-tion.London Drugs was oneof the businesses that re-ceived and passed alongcomplaints to the mall man-agement.Tony Hunt, the gener-al manager of loss preven-tion for London Drugs, saidthe business received com-plaints about people havingtrouble finding parking toaggressive driving.He said the businessasked mall management toaddress the concerns.Continuedonpage5Continuedonpage5Asbestos workersneed more protectionBurnabyNOW WEDNESDAY June 22, 2016 34 WEDNESDAY June 22, 2016 BurnabyNOWsolodistrict.com/blockpartyJOIN US FORTHE INAUGURALwhat to expect:Come check out SOLO District,North Burnabys newest urbanneighbourhoood, located on thesouthwest corner of Lougheedand Willingdon.Appia and the SOLO District retailersinvite all neighbours (near and far)to the communitys rst celebration a summer block party!This inaugural event takes placeon Saturday, June 25, 2016from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The block partywill feature free entertainment,prizes, giveaways, food samples andmuch more for everyone in your familyplus free underground parking.Bring your family and friends and ndout why SOLO District is Burnabysmost livable urban community.

DerekThibodeau said hes notaware of any criminal trou-ble, noting the number ofcars has dropped off re-cently.Were not anticipat-ing there to be any issues orproblems, he said.As for whyMarket Cross-ing was chosen for the carmeet,Wright suggested thelocation is central, its well-lit for people to take pic-tures and there are 24-hourrestaurants.Construction Associations(COCA), a group that rep-resents several construc-tion associations in B.C.,suggested the problem isntwith the gold standard ofasbestos abatement compa-nies, but rather the fly-by-night businesses that under-cut the industry and dumpwaste where theyre notsupposed to, in places likecity parks.He said the companiesoperating in the under-ground economy are mak-ing deals with homeownersthat regulated companiescant match.Baspaly said regulationslike the ones proposed byBurnaby could have unin-tended consequences bydriving up the costs for cer-tified companies and push-ing people to seek operatorsin the underground econ-omy.He said enforcement andincentives need to be part ofthe answer, adding his or-ganization is urging all theparties with a stake in theissue to come together towork out a solution.Its a complicated issue,its a pervasive issue andpeople are still very much atrisk, Baspaly said.The head of COCA saidhes not exactly sure howmuch asbestos is in the cur-rent building and housingstock in the region, but an-ecdotally hes heard frommembers that its a big is-sue.CarmeetraisescontroversyContinued frompage3Asbestos isa complicatedissueContinued frompage3Clearlywewanttohaveanice,safe, easy-to-visitparking lotCOMMENTON THIS STORYBurnabynow.comBurnabyNOW WEDNESDAY June 22, 2016 5DATE:Saturday, June 25TIME:9:00 - 10:30 amPLACE:Caffe Artigiano4359 HastingsBurnabyI hope to see you there!Richard T.

Its a no-holds-barred attack on both theNEB process and the de-cision to recommend ap-proval.In a statement, Robertsonsaid the board ignored keypieces of scientific evidenceabout what would happen ifthere was an oil spill.And,of course, the NEB did noteven address the larger pic-ture of greenhouse gas om-missions.The city also asked thecourt to prevent the federalgovernment frommaking adecision until the NEB goesback and looks at it all againunder a proper process one that allows cross-exam-inations and true communi-ty consultations.ButTrudeaus cagey an-swers to questions aboutthe pipeline approval areno comfort to anti-pipelineforces.Trudeau keeps pointingto how hard it is to pleaseeverybody and how theres alot of give and take in proj-ects.Were thinking hes nottrying to let the oil baronsdown softly. Hes more like-ly signalling to the oil com-panies that theyre going toget their way again.Its one of those politi-cal dilemmas that has got usstuck in an Earth-damagingvicious circle.Trudeau knows that con-tinuing dependency on fos-sil fuel essentially harmsthe planet and Canada. Butcutting it off now dampensa bit of the economic flowto Alberta and the federalgovernment.He, like the rest of us,wants it both ways.A clean-er, healthier planet and theability to keep the moneyflowing at the same time.Perhaps he will find thatsweet spot on the fenceand be able to balance hissupporters and his princi-ples. But we doubt it.Perhaps hes even hopingthat one of the court chal-lenges does stop the pipe-line.If he is, were with him onthat faint hope.201a-3430 Brighton Avenue,Burnaby,BC V5A 3H4MAIN SWITCHBOARD 604.444.3451DELIVERY INQUIRIES 604.398.3481CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING 604.444.3000EDITORIAL/NEWSTIP LINE 604.444.3020FAX LINE 604.444.3460EDITORIAL editorial@burnabynow.comADVERTISING display@burnabynow.comCLASSIFIED DTJames@van.netCANAD IANCOMMUNITYNEWSPAPERAWARD 2013ALVINBROUWERPublisherabrouwer@burnabynow.comPATTRACYEditorptracy@burnabynow.comLARAGRAHAMAssociate Publisherlgraham@burnabynow.comWomens Studies beginsTransiteasierthanhousingPrimeMinister JustinTrudeau flew into townlate last week and began tosolve one pressing issue fac-ingMetroVancouver andthen found himself smack inthe middle of another onewhere a solution may proveto be more elusive.Trudeau followed throughon a key election promiseand provided almost a half-billion dollars for transit im-provements, almost all ofthem in the metro region.But no sooner did he dothat with a lavish photo-opat a transit station than hefound himself facing ques-tions about another ma-jor issue: the out-of-controlhousing market in MetroVancouver.The transit funding is forwhat is called Phase 1 of amulti-billion-dollar plan forall kinds of transit and trans-portation projects. Phase 1will pay for more cars onvarious rapid transit routes,a third SeaBus, variousmaintenance projects andpre-construction planningfor two megaprojects: theBroadway subway line andthe Surrey light rail lines.Theres no reason to thinkTrudeau wont bring hisgovernments chequebooksome months from now tohelp fund the next phase oftransit improvements, whichwill include constructionmoney for those megaproj-ects.Of course, that is basedon the assumption thatMetroVancouvers mayorswill find a way to fund theirshare.The first phase wasrelatively cheap, and so find-ing a way of paying for it fare increases, some landsales and a minor propertytax increase wasnt a par-ticularly onerous task forthem.But the next phase ismuch more expensive.Themayors are already makingnoise about getting a shareof the provinces carbon tax,but the odds of that happen-ing appear remote, so theymay have to swallow hardand dig deep into the walletsof municipal taxpayers.As for the prime minis-ter, he attended a round-ta-ble discussion on the hous-ing problem the day afterhis splashy transit event.He seemed less sure aboutthings at this gathering, call-ing the housing situation acrisis but at the same timeexpressing concern that thewrong kind of action couldmake matters worse.His hesitation here is un-derstandable. Everyoneseems to be a housing ex-pert these days journal-ists, Realtors, developersand homebuyers but Iveseen no evidence that anyone thing is unquestionablythe root of the problem, andwhat the magic bullet solu-tion is.Ask three economistswhat the cause and solutionare, and chances are youwill get a variety of answers,some of them contradictory.Many point to foreignmoney flooding the market,but banning foreign invest-ment outright may trigger adifferent kind of economicproblem.OpinionGiven the limitations ofthe budget, its the bestpossible outcome.Paul Fester, story page 1OURVIEWMYVIEWKEITHBALDREYTWASSAIDTHISWEEK...ARCHIVE1985OURTEAMnowSimon Fraser University became one of the first fiveuniversities in Canada to establish aWomens Stud-ies program thanks to $500,000 in federal funding an-nounced in March.The program was designed to helpstudents understand the roles of women and demonstrateways to improve their situation, according to aNOW ar-ticle.The first group of students was scheduled to be ad-mitted in the 1985 spring semester.THEBURNABYNOW IS AMEMBEROF THENATIONALNEWSMEDIA COUNCIL,WHICH ISAN INDEPENDENTORGANIZATION ESTABLISHED TODEALWITHACCEPTABLE JOURNALISTIC PRACTICESANDETHICALBEHAVIOUR.

If I were abettingman, Iwould giveyougoododds they arent.LarryBennett, BurnabyHousing crisis has noeasy answersOthers say the housing supply itself hasto be greatly increased.The B.C. government is pressingTrudeau to change tax rules to make iteasier to build rental properties, and forthe federal government to once againbuild social housing. Provincial officialshave told their federal counterparts to re-lease federal lands that arent needed tobuild more housing, to eliminate GSTon all construction of new rental proper-ty and to reduce the capital gains tax onhousing used for rental property.This reflects B.C.s position that the saf-est kinds of action can take place on thesupply side of the equation, rather thantrying to monkey around with dramat-ic devices on the demand side that couldmake prices tumble downwards too much.A recent Bank of Canada study, for ex-ample, concluded that a 25 per cent re-duction in housing prices would translateinto 23 per cent of homeowners suddenlyhaving their mortgages underwater (i.e.negative equity) and seven per cent wouldthen have an unsupportable debt load.The B.C. government itself is likely togive the City ofVancouver the power totax vacant property owners, provide in-centives to municipalities to encouragehigh-density housing along transit lines(particularly rapid transit station) and willperhaps do some tinkering around foreignownership.So caution seems to be the watchwordfor both political leaders on this issue.And our new prime minister is aboutto discover that signing a big cheque topay for things like transit is a much easi-er endeavour than finding the right kindof action to take to deal with the explosivehousing market.Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter forGlobal B.C.SFU president revivesplan for local gondolaMikeBHopefully its just the air on topof BurnabyMountain but Petter has togive his heada shake to even sug-gest putting in a gondola to SFUwillprovide economicbenefits, Translinkmight be aneasy sell but other levels ofgovernmentwill see through thehazeand see it forwhat it is-a hugewaste ofmoney.

Its the absoluteNo. 1 issue in our city.When I am in my of-fice, theres just a stream ofpeople coming in, talkingabout their personal prob-lems with housing, whetherits young people who cantafford to buy anything.Thenthey move to the rental mar-ket, and thats also very diffi-cult, very expensive.I was talking to onewoman last week, who now,because her pension hasntincreased, is actually sleep-ing on relatives couches.Shes lost her house alto-gether.All of her supportnetworks are in Burnaby,but she cant afford to rent,theMP explained.Kennedy added hes dis-appointed the Liberalshavent acted on one of theirelection promises, whichwas to remove the GST onnew capital investments inaffordable rental housing.TheTrudeau governmentis now required to provide aresponse to the petitionerswithin 45 days.CitynowCityMPrenewscalls foraffordablehousingstrategyBurnabyNOW WEDNESDAY June 22, 2016 9Always keeping our patients smilingDENTUREWEARERS!230 - 1140 Austin Avenue Coquitlam604.939.1313 - Email: austdent@telus.netBoris EroshevskiDenturistAUSTIN DENTURE CLINICCOME IN AND RECEIVEA COMPLIMENTARYCONSULTATION AND DENTURECARE PACKAGE FREE!S?A L ;$7, - JQ L - >Q *Q91II L 0GI CJ10 WEDNESDAY June 22, 2016 BurnabyNOWTravisLulayQB14JonathonJenningsQB10VS 7PMPM*While quantities last.

Humanswho think they are helpingare inadvertently kidnap-ping the fledglings.Yolanda Brooks, spokes-person for the organization,says baby crows leave thenest and spend seven to 10days on the ground beforethey learn to fly. During thisvulnerable period, their par-ents keep watch and con-tinue feeding the fledglings.They also dive bomb any-thing that may be a threat totheir babies.People see the crowsand think its in distress andbeing attacked by a larg-er crow, Brooks explained.When people try to helpthe baby on the ground, theadults then dive-bomb thehuman.We get a lot of calls ofpeople saying the crows areattacking the baby, and Imtrying to help the baby, sheadded.The Burnaby Lake carecentre has taken in 132crows since May and had20 in care at press time.Brooks said the associationhas been reuniting fledglingswith their parents by return-ing them to where they werefound and placing the crowsin the nearest nest.The volunteers often getdive bombed while placingthe crows.The crows will still callout to each other, and theparents will start feedingtheir young again.Birds have no sense ofsmell, so its easier to dothat if we can locate thenest, Brooks said.Brooks wants people toknow they should leavebaby crows alone, unlessthey are bleeding or havesome kind of visible wound.Young crows can be identi-fied by their blue eyes butmay be close to adult size.Brooks has a tip for peoplewho have to frequently crosshostile crow territory: carryan umbrella to protect your-self from diving parents.Helping hands Its baby crow season. If you spot a fledgling crow on the ground, dont remove it unless its clearly injured. Its probably justlearning to fly, and you could be taking it away from its parents.

By reusingequipment, we reduce theamount which needs to bemanufactured.We also re-duce what ends up in land-fills or being recycling.For other non-profits,meanwhile, like BurnabyNeighbourhood House, theprogram is a godsend forother reasons as well.When you think aboutthe pressures on non-prof-its, technology is an ex-tremely big expense, Burn-aby Neighbourhood Houseprogram director KimberlyBarwich told theNOW.Burnaby NeighbourhoodHouse uses computers fromB.C.Tech to run tax clin-ics for between 2,000 and2,500 low-income familiesand individuals every year.It also offers free comput-er training for people whomight not have their ownmachines to work on.If you cant navigatetechnology now, you arevery lost, Barwich said.There are a number ofpeople who are still lagging,and so we support themwith clinics that they cancome to free.

PHOTOMINASPANAGIOTAKIS/HHOF/IIHF IMAGESFabbroreadyforNHLdraftspotlightHockey draft experts forecast BurnabyWinter Club product to go in the first roundDanOlsondolson@burnabynow.comThe suspense likely ends ear-ly Friday evening, when the but-terflies and nerves will be tradedfor an anticipated call, hugs andtears of joy from family members,a walk to the stage where a jerseyand handshakes await, followedby photos and interviews galore.For BurnabyWinter Clubproduct Dante Fabbro, thisweeks 2016 NHL Entry Draftin Buffalo is where a young kidsdream is realized. But thanks tolessons learned and past experi-ences gained, the just-turned-18year old will enter the next phaseof his career with plenty of per-spective to balance it all out.Its been a little bit of a whirl-wind, actually, having seen mybuddies go through the same pro-cess, Fabbro told theNOW lastweek. Im taking the time tosoak everything in. Its been a funcouple of weeks but as the draftnears its something Im thinkingabout more and more.The NHL combine earlier thismonth pulled together all thetop talent available in this yearsdraft and gave them a glimpseinto what the future may hold.Grilled by hockey people fromnearly every NHL team, the teenswere put through a mill of gruel-ing physical tests devised to revealweaknesses as much as strengths.When you have your demean-or and skills dissected by scouts,general managers and online fansalike its hard not to wilt a lit-tle under the microscope. Butjust as he regularly stared downand stopped an oncoming oppo-nent on the ice, Fabbro wheeledit around and wasnt taken by anycurve balls.The interview portion of thecombine was definitely somethingwhere you just had to be yourself(or) they would see right throughit if you were not. Just keep a coolhead and be yourself, he said.The training portion you hadguys whos season just ended andother guys had a little bit longer its pretty much standard in thesummer where you want to set (amark) and through the summeryou want to beat those things.Born in NewWestminster,the 6-foot-tall blueliner has seenhis stock rise over the past 12months, including as one of Can-adas top defencemen at theWorld Junior under-18 champi-onships in April.A disappointing fourth-placefinish also saw players separatethemselves and show their skillsagainst elite competition. By tal-lying eight assists in seven games,on the same ice surface as fellowfirst-round prospects like JessePuljujarvi,Alexander Nylander,Clayton Keller and Penticton andCanadian teammateTyson Jost,Fabbro raised the bar. His BCHLstats for 2015-16 in Penticton, 14goals and 53 assists in 45 games,earned him the top defencemanaward.A right-shot defender, he wasrecently ranked 18th amongNorth American skaters by theNHLs Central Scouting Bureaulast month. Others forecast himgoing in the mid-teens.TheLionsshareThe NOW recognizesthe districts highschool athletic awardwinners - first up,Burnaby MountainAthlete of theYear, male senior Jasper Chen (cross country, basket-ball, volleyball, ultimate)Jasper won the schools Heart ofthe Lion award for the cross countryteam and qualified for provincials.With the ultimate team, he was aleader on and off the field, receivingtheir MVP award.

He isslated to join the student body and hockeyplayers at Boston University as a freshman.Asked whether his older sisters Gina andSophia needle him about joining the ranksof the higher learned both attendAustinPeay College inTennessee on soccer schol-arships Fabbro laughed.Theyre pretty supportive and havebeen like that my entire life.We have ourfights and stuff like that but its a friend-ship-love relationship and obviously I cantsay enough good things about my sistersand my family and how I grew up. I havehad a pretty blessed life so far and hopefullythings will continue on that way from here.The combine didnt overwhelm the soft-spoken teen.Twenty-eight of the leagues 30teams sat down and interviewed him.Theglare, he realizes, will only get brighter.Its pretty crazy, honestly.Youre kind oflost for words almost.You grow up watchingthe NHL, all the superstars and its so manykids dream it might sound clich but itsevery kids dream to go and play hockey ifyoure lucky to do so, said Fabbro.
