8 bridge lanes to open on Dec. 1

Commuters will have to wait just two and a half weeks until the new Port Mann Bridge opens to eight lanes of traffic on Saturday, Dec. 1, the province announced Tuesday. The transition to the eightlane bridge opening will happen gradually with Highway 1 westbound traffic shifted onto the new bridge overnight on Saturday, Nov. 17, according to a press release. Westbound traffic will remain in a two-lane configuration until Dec. 1 as crews complete widening and improvements through the Cape Horn Interchange at the north end of the bridge. “We’re asking drivers to use caution as crews reposition lanes and barriers as we get ready to open the new Port Mann Bridge to westbound traffic,” Transportation Investment Corp. CEO Mike Proudfoot said. “In addition, over the next two weeks we will be preparing to open the remaining lanes on the bridge and Highway 1 from Langley to Coquitlam in time for Dec. 1. Every effort will be made to minimize the disruption associated with this transition.” Dec. 1 will also mark the completion of interchange improvements and highway widening east of the Port Mann Bridge construction, including more than 20 kilometres of new HOV lanes extending to Langley. Construction will continue on the bridge and along the Highway 1 corridor after the Dec. 1 opening. Crews will keep working to complete the bridge to its full 10-lane capacity, and work will continue between the Cape Horn Interchange and Vancouver.

Arrest in Austin Heights robberies Businesses relieved as 28-year-old man faces almost two dozen charges related to thefts Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com After a nearly three-month spree that left businesses on edge, Coquitlam Mounties have caught the man they believe is responsible for a string of robberies in the Austin Heights area. Ryan Sheldon McClinton, 28, is facing nearly two-dozen charges related to the robberies. He was charged back on Nov. 7. Investigators caught a break in the case after an Oct. 28 robbery where the suspect left a backpack behind at the scene. That backpack revealed clues

that eventually led to the arrest of McClinton. He is now facing 22 charges including seven for robbery, seven for using an imitation firearm while committing an offence, seven for using a disguise with intent to commit an offence and one charge of possession of stolen property. The first of a string of robberies began at the start of August. The thief originally targeted a coffee shop, store and pharmacy. In one case, the suspect may have brandished a gun. A week later, a suspect targeted four other businesses. In all, police believe the same sus-

pect was responsible for a total of nine robberies, linking the incidents based on the suspect’s appearance. The thief wore a hoodie, balaclava and gloves during the mid-summer robberies. The last two robberies came at the end of October. Catching the robber was a top priority for the detachment. RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said Mounties were able to connect McClinton to seven robberies, but may be able to connect him to more as the investigation continues. “We’re really glad to tell the business owners of Austin Heights that we have [allegedly] caught him and he now has

to face justice,” he said. News of the alleged robber’s arrest was greeted with relief in the business community. “They’re all just feeling pretty happy this individual is behind bars,” said Erin Davidson, the Austin Height Business Improvement Association’s executive director. She said the robberies caused significant angst among the entire business community. However, she also suggested lessons were learned from the robberies, noting individual businesses have had  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see SUSPECT.

Tri-Cities water treatment updated

New Metro Vancouver plant will use ozone, rather than chlorine, to kill microorganisms John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

W

hat’s already regarded as some of the best drinking water in the world is about to get even

better. A new Metro Vancouver water disinfection project in north Coquitlam was recently unveiled to the media to shed light on some of the new processes involved in cleaning the roughly 370 million litres of water produced there daily. And, in fact, light is a key new element added to the treatment process, as the inclusion of ozonation uses natural light to kill off microorganisms found in the water. “Ozonation allows us to reduce the amount of chlorine that we use in the systems,” said PoCo Mayor Greg Moore, chair of Metro Vancouver’s board of directors. “And ozonation is more effective at getting at the microorganisms than chlorine is.” Previously, the water flowing out of the Coquitlam watershed was treated with a UV disinfection treatment system only, Moore said. The addition of ozonation helps treat even the smallest micro particulates and other organisms such as cryptosporidium and giardia that are chlorine resistant. Once completed, the system will see water coming out of the reservoir and directed into eight ultraviolet units. Each of those units contain 40 ultraviolet lamps covered by protective sleeves, and as the water travels through those units, the ultraviolet light coming from the lamps kills the microorganisms. One of three reservoirs serving

To see more photos of the facility, visit www.thenownews.com. the Metro Vancouver region, the Coquitlam watershed provides water to the Tri-Cities, Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Langley and Surrey. The $110-million project is slated for completion next fall and is expected to extend the life of the facility by about 50 years, Moore said. “We’ve got pipes in the ground up there, and we’ve got the majority of

the major pipe infrastructure in place and we’re putting in the building around it right now,” he added. As the government body tasked with providing water to the region, Metro Vancouver charges individual municipalities about 60 cents for every 1,000 litres consumed. “When you think about that, some people go to the store and buy a bottle

of water and it’s about $2 for a half litre — we charge 60 cents for a thousand litres,” Moore said. “And that’s part of [Metro Vancouver’s] tap water campaign, in that people should just be going to the tap because you’re getting the same quality of water using the same technologies that all the bottled water companies are using.”

Coquitlam creates new parking rules John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

Coquitlam council has embarked on an ambitious new parking plan that will affect neighbourhood parking policies for decades, while also attempting to change attitudes around vehicle use. The new bylaw focuses on areas of the city that will be impacted by transit-related development — specifically the Burquitlam and Lougheed areas, along with City Centre — and on multi-family developments, townhouses and other commercial uses.

Highlights include a reduction in the ratio of parking stalls for two bedroom units — the shift calls for 1.35 parking stalls, down from the previous rate of 1.5. The plan also includes a voluntary payment-in-lieu of parking program that will see developers pay $20,000 for every parking space not provided above the five per cent requirement for off-street parking. In order to qualify for the program, developers will be asked to provide a transportation demand strategy that includes provisions to get people out of cars: transit

passes, co-op car parking stalls and end-of-trip facilities for cyclists like showers and bike racks. The revenue from that voluntary program will then be directed towards a fund to finance other parking initiatives in the city. “Every other jurisdiction that has rapid transit has had to do this,” said Mayor Richard Stewart. “This is not something they’ve opted to do. This is something you have to do.” There was some opposition to the plan, however, as Stewart and Coun. Terry O’Neill suggested the city charge $15,000 per stall, so as

to not “penalize” developers. Coun. Brent Asmundson, on the other hand, preferred that charge be increased to $23,000 or $24,000. “When we make this policy, we’re looking at years down the road,” he said. “If we’ve got it wrong and there’s not enough, we’re going to have a problem here.” Catherine Mohoruk, the city’s transportation planning manager, noted the average charge among other Metro Vancouver municipalities that use a payment-in-lieu program is $27,000. Staff had initially considered a $25,000 charge, though rep-

resentatives from the Urban Development Institute proposed the city look at fees in the range of $10,000 to $15,000. “Anything less than [$20,000], it starts to negate our ability to actually provide a supply over time,” Mohoruk said. “It would take us much longer to accrue the funds to actually top up the supply.” Coun. Lou Sekora suggested a ratio of 1.75 stalls for every two-bedroom unit be used, and cautioned that reducing those parking ratios would result in transit users parking throughout residential areas.

Dramatic drop in number of vehicles stolen Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com It wasn’t all that long ago that a stolen car was as common a crime as vandalism or petty theft. But in the last few years, the number of vehicle thefts has dropped dramatically across B.C., including in the Tri-Cities. According to statistics released by ICBC, the number of theft-of-vehicle incidents in Coquitlam dropped by 85 per cent going back to 2003. There were 70 cars stolen in the city in the first six

months of this year, compared to 478 in 2003. The number of thefts peaked in 2004 at 532, but has been in a steady decline yearafter-year since. It’s a similar story in Port Coquitlam and Port Moody. The number of car thefts in PoCo has dropped 82 per cent since 2003, to 35 in the first half of 2012 from 191 in 2003. Again the numbers peaked in 2004 at 246 and have continued to come down in the years since. In Port Moody, the number of stolen cars has tumbled 88 per cent to just five in the first six months of 2012, com-

pared to 43 in 2003. As was the case with the other Tri-Cities, the number of thefts from the City of the Arts peaked years earlier at 48 in 2005. For officials at ICBC, there are a few reasons for the decline. Jill Blacklock, a road-safety delivery manager with ICBC, suggested cars are becoming harder to steal since laws were introduced in the middle of the last decade forcing auto manufacturers to install immobilizers on all new vehicles. She also suggested the province’s bait car program,

which was introduced in 2003, has been a major deterrent for car thieves. “People are just doing a better job of protecting themselves and locking their vehicles and making their vehicles less attractive to thieves,” Blacklock said. With more new vehicles hitting the road each year, ICBC expects the number of auto thefts to continue to drop in the coming years, though not as dramatically. Interestingly, the drop in auto thefts has coincided with a similar drop in theft-fromvehicle reports. Blacklock said people are

doing a better job of protecting themselves and putting away valuables. She contends when there is a spike in thefts in an individual community, which does

occur on occasion, it’s usually tied to a handful of people who may be out of jail. Provincially, auto thefts have dropped by 74 per cent since 2003.

Province responds to city’s sign concerns

We’ll give you that beautiful smile

John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Calls for clearer, more effective signage in south Coquitlam appear to have been heard by the provincial government. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure spokesperson Kate Trotter told The NOW the province will begin installing more signs containing the city’s name — along with standard numerical references — by key entry and exit points near the city. She said the signs will be placed near the Cape Horn Interchange and Port Mann Bridge. “While these signs will still use numerical references, there is also wording for ‘Coquitlam’ to ensure drivers coming off the new Port Mann Bridge are aware of where to go,” she said. “Exit signs along the corridor will also reference ‘Coquitlam’ to ensure traffic knows when to exit the highway.” The sign issue touched a raw nerve with both council and staff at a council in committee meeting last week.

FREE Consultation... Limited time offer. Call for details. NOW file photo

The province says better road signs are on the way. Several council members lamented the fact that the majority of signs near the Port Mann Bridge only point to highway and off-ramp numbers, but neglect to provide the specific names behind those routes. One senior staffer even suggested the city has tried for 18 months to get the province to change those policies, with little success. According to Trotter, the ministry’s sign policy follows both national and provincial standards that promote con-

sistency across the province’s road networks. “The use of the numerical reference for highways is a consistent practice used across the province and avoids inconsistencies that generate from jurisdictional boundaries and local references to areas along the highway network,” she said. Eight lanes are expected to open on the new Port Mann Bridge on Saturday, Dec. 1, while the remaining two lanes will open sometime in 2013. twitter.com/johnkurucz

Amanda Todd tribute planned for Sunday Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com On Friday, Amanda Todd would have turned 16. But as people around the world have come to know, the Port Coquitlam teen never lived to see that day. Instead, her family and friends will pay tribute to her on Sunday (Nov. 18) through a celebration of life and happy birthday memorial at the Red Robinson Show Theatre in Coquitlam. Todd, who was a Grade 10 student at Coquitlam Alternate Basic Education (CABE) Secondary in Coquitlam, committed suicide on Oct. 10, a month after posting a YouTube video about her experiences battling bullies over an incident that occurred a few years ago. Her story caught the world’s attention, bringing a renewed focus on the issue of bullying in the province.

Sunday’s memorial is meant as an opportunity for friends, family and the public to pay tribute to the teen. Due to the limited number of seats, attendees are asked to RSVP to www.xoxoent.com/ amandarsvp. The doors are set to open at 12:30 p.m., with the memorial running from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. People are also being asked to bring an unwrapped toy, which will be donated to the SHARE Family & Community Services Society for Christmas. The family has also established the Amanda Todd Legacy. The initiative is intended to raise money for anti-bullying education and for support programs to help young people with mental health problems and educational initiatives. Donations can be made online to the Vancouver Foundation or any RBC Canada branch under Amanda Todd’s Trust Fund.

GULP!

WORRIED YOUR NEW MORTGAGE COULD PUSH THE IMPORTANT THINGS OUT OF YOUR LIFE?

New bullying website A new website that allows B.C. students to report bullying anonymously is now live. Education Minister Don McRae made the announcement Monday at an anti-bullying forum arranged by Premier Christy Clark following the suicide last month of Port Coquitlam teenager Amanda Todd. McRae said reports about bullying will be directed to safe school coordinators, and there will be one such coordinator in each district. Surrey and Nanaimo districts already have

websites that allow anonymous reporting and say they have had great success. Safe school coordinators will analyze trends, identify hotspots and help plan a response, in conjunction with appropriate authorities such as police, McRae said. The new website is part of the government’s 10-part ERASE Bullying strategy that includes tougher codes of conduct for schools and multi-year training for educators. — Janet Steffenhagen, Vancouver Sun

Opinion

Our veterans deserve better

An open letter to MP James Moore: I am writing today to express my extreme disappointment and concern over recent media stories concerning changes to the Veterans Act in 2006 which have, in effect, created two classes of war veterans. To hear that the vast majority of applications to the Last Post are denied and that, in some cases, veterans receive To The fewer death benefits than social assistance recipients is both degrading and demoralizing to those who have risked their lives for our freedoms. To read that the lump sum payouts to veterans who are seriously injured and/or suffering long-term effects as a result of their service have been reduced to a fraction of what prior combatants received is shameful, given the golden pensions that politicians

receive for their often low-risk, highly lucrative positions in Parliament and in our provincial legislatures. We owe a debt of gratitude for those who literally put their lives on the line at the behest of our political decision makers to go into war zones, disaster zones and unstable political areas and bring about peace, stability and democracy. We must do better by our veterans. As Editor an immigrant to Canada who might not otherwise be alive today had it not been for the sacrifices made by Canadian soldiers in the Second World War in Europe, I feel I must speak up for these brave men and women of this generation.

Our View

Getting it right

E

very once in a while, governments do something right. And any time they do something that fights cancer it’s got to be right. That’s why we’re joining the Canadian Cancer Society in applauding the provincial government’s announcement of a new screening program to detect colorectal cancer, to get underway next spring. Colorectal cancer is one of those cancers that is eminently treatable if it’s detected early enough. And yet, despite its treatability, it kills more men and women each year than just about any other cancer. The Canadian Cancer Society estimates that by the close of 2012, some 2,850 British Columbians will have been diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and 1,150 — about two of every five — will die of it. In May 2011 the society estimated that, if 80 per cent of Canadians aged 50 and older were screened every two years, 10,000 to 15,000 colorectal cancer deaths could be prevented over the next 10 years. Most colorectal cancers grow slowly and predictably, and do not cause signs or symptoms until the cancer reaches an advanced stage. Consequently, the Cancer Society believes regular screening and detection are critical, recommending that men and women age 50 and over have a stool test at least every two years. Stool tests help identify polyps before they become cancerous. The government’s decision to institute provincewide screening is not rocket science — and it’s not reinventing the wheel: the program builds on a pilot program that has been operating since 2009 in a number of B.C. communities. But this is a positive initiative that has the potential to save hundreds, perhaps thousands of lives. What’s not to applaud about that?

Corrigan could probably go on a Hawaiian vacation during the entire election campaign and still be able to hang onto her seat. I’m sure Corrigan is no doubt pleased at the rank amateurism of her opponents here. Not only is their off-the-mark scheme to unseat her a study in fantasy politics, but the fact they put all this in writing shows a special brand of stupidity that must warm her heart. Derek Corrigan is no doubt laughing about all this as well. He is firmly ensconced in the mayor’s office and has emerged as one of the most influential and powerful figures in municipal politics. If this kind of scheming is an example of his political opposition, he won’t be leaving that mayor’s office anytime soon. Another telling aspect of this sad tale is that the memo was leaked to the New Democrats, who gleefully shared it with the media. It’s a political truism that when a government is truly in trouble, its inner secrets start getting shared with the Opposition, and that’s what’s happening here. The great irony, of course, is rather than using the hospital to win three seats in Burnaby, this whole episode has more likely cost the B.C. Liberals all the seats there. Or, in the words of the memo’s authors, they’ve “sealed the deal.” Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Letters Firecrackers take a terrible toll on our animal friends For the past five years Halloween has been a very stressful time for our golden retriever Jaspar. This year was the worst due to three weeks of fire crackers blasting day and night. Three days before Halloween we left him inside with the radio talking away but To The Editor he was frightened from firecrackers to the point of panic. Trying to get out of the house he chewed two feet off of a door frame and part of the door. The day of Halloween we put him outside when we went out for a few hours. Again, scared, he bit through a metal mesh fence, through a hedge and under another fence. After running east for who knows how far, someone captured him and took him to the Como Lake Veterinarian, who called me to come pick up a very upset boy. Two days later with things calming down I took Jaspar outside to fetch the ball for some treats, which usually lasts for a few minutes. Bang! And off he went again. I drove all the streets looking for him with no luck. I decided to go home and see if another call for him would

I really would like to thank these helpful people who saved Jaspar and let us get back to “normal” with Jaspar. He has lost three teeth trying to chew his way out when frightened by firecrackers. The cruelty to animals caused by firecrackers every year is criminal. I personally would like them to be restricted to Halloween night only. The same goes for New Year’s Eve. A society that fails to recognize this problem and doesn’t try to stop this cruelty to animals is letting down innocent victims year after

Line” inreach worker for Pacific Institution, Matsqui and William Head prisons here in B.C., and worked out of the Abbotsford office of the John Howard Society of the Fraser Valley. Most Canadians do not know much about what a life sentence is or means in Canada. First off, there are about 5,000 lifers in Canada. Sixty-one per cent are in Canadian prisons, and 39 per cent are out in the community on parole forever. Lifers make up 22 per cent of all federal inmates in Canadian prisons. There are three parole eligibility life sentences in Canada: life to seven (years) for non-homicide conviction, life 10 to 25 for murder two (upon conviction the judge renders a parole eligibility of not less than 10 years and not more than 25 years) — then there is life to 25 for murder one. Every life sentence has a day parole eligibility three years prior to its full parole eligibility. Day parolees must live in a government-contracted halfway house under supervision. The reality of serving a life sentence in Canada is simple. During the first two years, a lifer is a maximum-security inmate mandatorilly. He or she will do the ICPM (Integrated Correctional Program Model) given in medium security prisons. Then, once designated minimum security, an inmate can ask to be transferred to a minimum institution.

A lifer is eligible to apply for escorted temporary absence (ETA) at their day parole date. After doing several ETAs, he/she can apply for unescorted temporary absence (UTA). Almost every lifer in Canada has to go through all this before getting a day parole, and it is very rare for a lifer to get full parole having done less than two years of day parole. Thirty per cent of all incarcerated lifers in Canada are past their individual day parole dates. Parole in Canada came into existence in 1956. Day parole came into existence in 1974. St. Leonard’s House in Windsor, Ont. became Canada’s first halfway house in 1962. Recidivism for paroled lifers in Canada for a new criminal conviction is 0.8 per cent. The average for a lifer getting his/her full parole is five years after his/her full parole date. It is rare a lifer gets out prior to full parole date. A lifer’s first and usually second ETA is with a corrections officer (prison guard), then a lifer can go on ETA with a non-corrections officer. As a Life Line inreach worker, I took lifers out of minimum-security institutions on ETA. I also spoke on behalf of lifers at their parole hearings. W. Ford Coquitlam

While LLLT has been around for over 20 years internationally, it is fast becoming a a popular choice as a way of helping the body use it’s own natural resources for better health. Laser technology joins ancient healing methods with modern technology to create a powerful holistic tool.

FLOORING and HOME CENTRE

Solid Hardwood vs Engineered Hardwood Hardwood Flooring Options: Selecting the type of wood floor that you want in your house is not an easy thing to do with all the styles, species, colours, and brands on the market today. The two main types of wood flooring are a solid hardwood floor and an engineered hardwood floor. So, let’s take a good look at both of them to understand their differences, what applications can we use them for, what are the pros and cons of using each one of them. Differences in the manufacturing process: As you can easily imagine the difference between the two starts right in the beginning, during the manufacturing process. Engineered hardwood flooring is a veneer of real hardwood pressed and glued together with plywood or and HDF core. Solid hardwood is made out of a single, solid piece of wood that has been milled into a solid flooring board. Resistance to environmental changes: Because of the way they are designed, the two main types of flooring react completely different to various changes in the environment. Engineered flooring will have a stronger tolerance to the moisture changes, due to the fact that the plywood cores are arranged in an overlapping pattern. This construction will cause the layers of plywood to move a different direction from one another with the end result being that there is very little movement. The solid floor, on the other hand is very sensitive to moisture changes. It requires a longer period of acclimatization prior to the installation and, ideally, is better to have a humidifier installed in the house in order to keep the moisture at the same level all year long. Of course, there are differences between hardwood floor species, not all of them reacting the same way to environmental changes. Solid vs. Engineered Wood, Conclusion: So, there you have it. Answer a few simple questions in order to find out what type of floor works best in your situation. STEVE FAURSCHOU 604-941-6677 • www.abfloored.com #5 - 3160 Westwood St., Port Coquitlam

DENTIST I eat healthy and I still get cavities. Why is that?

Dear Shirley,

Why should I buy a home instead of renting? James Dear James, Number one: you will have a sense of personal satisfaction owning your own home. You will be able to create your own private space that is unique to you. When you own, you can do it all your way! A financial plus in owning a home is the possibility of the home increasing in value over time. If you rent, you write your monthly cheque and it is gone forever. At the end of your lease, you have nothing and face the possibility of increasing rental rates. If you have any question or concerns, please email me at shirleybrown@shaw.ca. The more informed you are, the happier you’ll be with your purchase.

While there are multiple factors when looking at why you may be susceptible to decay there are four main ones to consider: 1. The concentration of the bacteria that cause decay; these bacteria are passed on to babies and young children usually be caregivers or other children. 2. Amount of plaque on the teeth increases the local presence of the bacteria responsible for decay. A dry mouth will increase this risk because of the lack of saliva which protects the teeth. 3. Frequency of exposure to sugars. It is not how much sugar but how often the teeth are exposed to sugars that determines the risk. Remember that all foods except protein and fat break down into sugars. That includes fruits, vegetables and grains. 4. The acidity or pH of the mouth. A highly acidic diet will create an environment that is much more conducive to decay. Your dental hygienist and dentist can help you to understand why, despite your “healthy” diet, you are developing cavities.

CHRISTMAS PET HAZARDS

DECORATIONS & CHRISTMAS TREES: • Pine needles, when ingested, can puncture holes in the intestines. D r. N e n a d K a r l i , • Do not allow pets to drink holiday tree DVM & Assoc. water; the tree may contain fertilizers. • Do not add aspirin to tree water, since aspirin is very dangerous for pets if ingested. • Anchor your Christmas Tree; especially if you have a cat that climbs. • Snow Globes contain poisonous antifreeze. If one breaks make sure to immediately remove your pet and thoroughly clean. • Make sure decorations are labeled non-toxic. TINSEL & ANGEL HAIR: Dogs and especially Cats love to eat anything of a string nature; tinsel can cause choking and intestinal obstruction. Angel hair can be especially dangerous since it is made from spun glass and will shred the intestines if swallowed. FOOD: TURKEY, GRAVY, FATTY FOODS & GARBAGE: These kinds of foods even in small amounts can cause illnesses from vomiting and diarrhea to highly serious pancreatitis and other toxic reactions. Severe pancreatitis if left untreated through veterinary care can lead to death. Please call your Veterinarian if symptoms of vomiting and/or diarrhea occur after eating any human foods or garbage. CHOCOLATE: Chocolate is very poisonous to pets. One ounce of unsweetened baking chocolate carries enough of the toxin “Theobromine” to make even a large breed of dog very sick, and if left untreated cause death. Even normal milk chocolate can be dangerous; a small dog or cat sharing candy can wind up in big trouble. Symptoms of chocolate poisoning include hyper excitability, nervousness, vomiting and diarrhea. BONES: ALL bones are very dangerous; but especially poultry bones that can splinter easily, puncturing the esophagus, intestines or any vital organs. BC SPCA Fundraiser

Q: My spouse and I are separating but he refuses to leave the house. What can I do?

A. You can’t force the other out of the home without a written agreement or a Court Order. All written agreements should be prepared by a lawyer experienced in family law. If you cannot live together while you attempt to settle the legal matters, you may leave the home yourself. If you have children and your spouse is TARYNNE HOOVER not capable of caring for them, you should not leave the children. If the children go with you, it’s important that you ensure your spouse knows where the children are and is able to contact them. You may also offer arrangements for your spouse to see the children. Leaving the home does not constitute “abandonment” or “desertion”. However there may be important considerations relating to maintenance, care of the children or division of the assets, which ought to be reviewed with experienced legal counsel before you decide to leave the home. If violence is an issue, you must ensure your safety and that of any children in the home. Call 911 if there is an incident where your safety is threatened.

Consciousness is part three of the Riverview Hospital Story

EARN

film about a psychiatrist who worked for 40 years at Coquitlam’s Essondale asylum (later Riverview Hospital) debunks the notion that the mental institutions of old were dark and terrifying places — or does it? Premiering at Douglas College’s Coquitlam campus on Thursday, Nov. 15, Consciousness is a 25-minute film produced by Heidi Currie, a criminology instructor at Douglas, and Anna Tremere of the Riverview Hospital Historical Society. It will be shown in Room A1470 at 7 p.m. The screening is free and open to the public, and will be followed by a question-and-answer session and refreshments. Consciousness tells the story of Dr. Ralph Arrowsmith, a mid-20th century psychiatrist with a lifelong connection to Riverview Hospital, a mental institution that opened in 1913 and closed last summer. Arrowsmith, who was passionate about the psychiatric movement and deeply committed to his patients, recounts his years of practice with frank discussions of the treatment and perception of the mentally ill at the iconic mental hospital, from the peak of the institutional movement through deinstitutionalization. “To hear from somebody who spent his professional life at Riverview and became medical director there is fascinating, because the asylum system no longer exists,” Currie said in a press release. “This film gives us insight into the real hospital — that goes beyond stereotypes.” But Currie also points out that while popular impressions about asylums are overblown, the institutions could, in fact, be terrifying places. “People like it to be scary,” she says. “And it is kind of scary. In this film we have this loving, wonderful, even endearing psychiatrist who tells his story, but underneath, as he describes his years at the hospital, are jolting examples of what sometimes made it a terrifying place.” Arrowsmith, along with Currie, Tremere and the director of Consciousness, lisa g, will be in attendance. Featuring archival film and photography combined with re-creation footage,

THE 13TH ANNUAL

Free flu shots available to young kids, caregivers As flu season gets underway, Fraser Health’s chief medical health officer is reminding residents the flu shot is provided free of charge to those at highest risk of severe flu illness, as well as those who are close contacts or caregivers. Public health clinics providing free flu shots to people at high risk of complications from the flu are now underway in Fraser Health communities. New this year, healthy children aged six months to less than five years of age and household contacts and caregivers of children less than five years of age are eligible for the free vaccine. “In a typical flu season, thousands of people develop serious illness or even die from the flu or its complications, such as pneumonia,” Dr. Paul Van Buynder said in a press release. “The influenza vaccine is the best protection against influenza illness and its complications and is a safe and effective way to help people stay healthy, prevent illness and even save lives.” Influenza is the leading cause of preventable death due to infectious disease in Canada, killing thousands of Canadians every year and hospitalizing thousands more. It spreads easily from person to person through coughing, sneezing, face-to-face contact and by touching surfaces such as door knobs and telephones that have been contaminated with the virus. The flu season usually runs from November to April with an estimated 10 to 25 per cent of people infected each year. A person can have the flu virus without knowing it, and pass it on to someone who may become seriously ill. An estimated 200 to 300 Fraser Health residents, mainly seniors, die every year from complications of influenza infection. Free flu shots are highly recommended and

provided to several groups, including: • People 65 and older and their caregivers • Children and adults with chronic health conditions and their household contacts • Healthy children aged six months to under five years • Household contacts and caregivers of infants and children under five years • Pregnant women who will be in their third trimester during the influenza season • People who are very overweight (those with a body mass index of 40 or greater) Upcoming flu shot clinics in the Tri-Cities include: • Monday, Nov. 19, from 1 to 6:30 p.m. at the Leigh Square Community Arts Village (old post office), 2253 Leigh Square Pl. in PoCo. By appointment only. Call 604-777-8700. • Tuesday, Nov. 20, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at Dogwood Pavilion, 624 Poirier St. in Coquitlam. By appointment only. Call 604-9497200. • Thursday, Nov. 29, from 9 a.m. to noon at Glen Pine Pavilion, 1200 Glen Pine Crt., Coquitlam. By appointment only. Call 604-9497200. For a complete list of flu clinics near you, visit www.fraserhealth.ca or consult the BC Flu Clinic Locator at www.health.gov.bc.ca/flu. Bring your CareCard or other government I.D. (valid driver’s licence) to the clinic, and wear a short-sleeved shirt. Many doctor’s offices and pharmacies also provide vaccine free-of-charge to those who are eligible. More information is available on the Immunize BC website at www.immunizebc.ca and the HealthLink BC website at www.healthlinkbc. ca. You can also call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 to speak to a health-care professional.

and mansions. Play-Doh is a great favourite and can be made at home. Cookie cutters, a rolling pin and some small plastic animals lead children to many adventures. As soon as kids can keep things out of their mouths it’s time to stock art supplies. Big fat crayons and sheets of paper, or some watercolours or fingerpaints, are popular with children. Dress-up clothes lead to

some wonderful imaginative play. Old hats, shoes, dresses and shortened pants will provide solitary and group play. And if you want to splurge, a wand or firefighter’s hat will add to the fun. Kids of all ages love music. Sing with your kids (they love when you sing and have no idea if you are on tune or not) and dance with them. Don’t limit yourself to children’s music; also put on your songs and whirl around the floor

with them. And don’t forget books. Read to your kids. Read to them every day. Kids who learn to enjoy books and reading from a young age will be able to entertain themselves. When they are little they will love looking at the pictures and as they mature they will be keen to read their favourite books. However, once they can read, don’t stop reading to them. Storytime is a very special time between children

and adults. So read to them and encourage their aunts, uncles and grandparents to also curl up with a child or two and a good book. • Tri-Cities resident Kathy Lynn is a professional speaker and author of Who’s In Charge Anyway? and But Nobody Told Me I’d Ever Have to Leave Home.

Score Card

Top teams vie for field hockey bragging rights Another high school sport heads into its provincial showcase, while action continues to heat up on the local soccer pitch and arenas. SHORT CORNER SHOTS • The B.C. Senior Girls AAA Field Hockey championships tee off today (Wednesday), 8 a.m. at Coquitlam Town Centre park, with 16 teams vying for the provincial crown. Among those battling for a berth into Friday’s 3 p.m. final are the host Gleneagle Talons, Dr. Charles Best Blue Devils, Port Moody Blues and Fraser Valley champion Heritage Woods Kodiaks. HARDWOOD OPENINGS • The Simon Fraser University men’s basketball team hosts Capilano University tonight (Wednesday), 7 p.m. at the Chancellor gym. It’s a key exhibition test for the Clan, who are looking at climbing the charts in the GNAC Div. III standings this year. BATTLE OF THE YOUNG GUNS • Rolling with a perfect 10-0-0 record, the Port Moody Lordco Gunners will look to keep that clean sheet going against Fraser Valley under-21’s secondbest squad, the North Coquitlam United, Saturday, 5 p.m. at Dr. Charles Best Secondary turf. North Coquitlam is wellensconced in second place, but would like nothing better than to upset the high-flying Gunners. WHISTLE STOP • The Coquitlam Express welcome back their three players who represented Canada West at the World Junior A Hockey Challenge in Nova Scotia, with a Sunday 2 p.m. tilt (Nov. 18) against the Vernon Vipers. Coquitlam posted a mediocre 3-4 record without the trio, plus a handful of injured players, but look forward to getting back on the winning track this week. SCRATCHING POST • The Port Moody Panthers are aiming to spring back into the win column Monday (Nov. 19) as they host the North Van Wolf Pack, 7:30 p.m. at Port Moody Arena. The Panthers, who have lost their last two games, are struggling this year in the junior B hockey loop, but have shown better of late with an overtime win and overtime loss in recent weeks.

Ravens hang on to edge ailing Cents Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Some clutch picks and merciless marching was all that separated the Terry Fox Ravens and the Centennial Centaurs on Saturday. That, and an ankle injury to Cents star running back Nathan Lund. Terry Fox advanced to the B.C. Subway Bowl AAA football quarterfinals with a dramatic 21-20 triumph over its cross-district rivals, outlasting the Centaurs in a game of gambles, scrambles and timely defensive gems. Jason Shamatutu hauled down an interception at midfield five minutes into the third quarter to set up Mate McLeod-Genest’s six-yard touchdown run, his second of the game. It put Fox ahead 20-12 and was followed by Brian Hope’s point-after attempt, which would prove to be the winning margin. “[Shamatutu] can’t catch the ball

on offence but on defence he got the picks — go figure,” grinned Ravens co-coach Tom Kudaba of his safety’s two interceptions. The lanky Grade 11 safety also pulled down another Centennial pass early in the fourth quarter at the Ravens’ 32-yard line to squelch a Centaur charge. However, a poor snap a few plays later presented the Coquitlam crew with one last chance to stay within striking distance — and this time they took advantage. Cents’ quarterback Nick Okamoto hit Jake Bye with a 15-yard TD pass, followed by a two-point convert toss to Jordan Kennedy to make it 21-20 with four minutes left in regulation time. When they got the ball back with just over a minute to play, the Cents advanced to the Fox 35-yard line on a pass to Isaiah Stewart and a pass interference call againt the Ravens. On Centennial’s final play, Adrial Sellers intercepted Okamoto’s pass to

lock up the win for Fox. “It wasn’t exactly the play I called, it was a Hail Mary pass but the patterns weren’t quite what we called,” sighed Centennial head coach Ryk Piche. “When you see the Hail Mary go up, you kind of see your season flash before your eyes.” Fox grabbed the early lead when Mike Beck recovered a fumble in the end zone four minutes into the contest, followed by a two-point convert pass to Brad Lyons. In the second quarter, Lund scooted across for a four-yard TD to make it 8-6. McLeod-Genest pushed over a oneyard major, then pulled down the twopoint convert pass from Trevor Casey to make it 14-6. For the Centaurs, the biggest obstacle the club faced was in losing Lund — to a sprained ankle suffered on the team’s second possession — that parked him on the sidelines for all of the second half. “We tried taping it and everything

we could, but Nathan couldn’t put any weight on it. I’ve ridden the Lund train all year, but it was really great to see the rest of the boys jump in and push them so hard,” said Piche. The Cents had a couple of other excellent chances, including a fourthand-goal from the Fox six-yard line, but were held back by a flexible Ravens defence. With the win, the Ravens now face the defending B.C. AAA champion Mount Doug Rams on Friday in Victoria — a challenge that co-coach Tom Kudaba feels his roster will need to step up to handle. “[Mount Doug] had an exciting year, the defending champions playing on their home turf — obviously we’re the underdogs,” noted Kudaba. “If Trevor has a good solid week of practice and we don’t play over our heads a bit we could do something against them.” In their lone encounter this year, Mount Doug pulled out a 44-40 win.

Underdog role pays dividends for Fox at Fraser Valleys Sometimes the underdogs don’t win the day. The Terry Fox Ravens boys soccer team saw its tremendous streak stopped on Thursday when it fell 6-2 to the Tamanawis Wildcats in the Fraser Valley AAA championship final. Coming on the heels of a huge 3-1 victory over previously unbeaten Dr. Charles Best in the semifinal, Fox

found itself trailing early to the Valley West league champion Wildcats. Tamanawis scored twice before the nine-minute mark, including a penalty shot. “We had to change our structure and personnel right away and it took a while to adapt to the changes,” remarked Ravens coach John Murphy. Fox found itself starring at a 4-0

deficit at halftime, but managed to regroup to earn a 2-2 draw over the second half. Those were the only two goals Tamanawis surrendered in the tournament. Ross Merton and Kevin Kim supplied the Ravens goals, while Justin Gillespie stepped forward and helped fill in for two missing starters. Fox, who finished in a three-way tie in the Valley North league with

a 4-2-1 record, will be rewarded for its ursurping of a number of higher ranked squads at the upcoming provincial seeding meeting. “I’m proud of how they came together as a team,” noted Murphy. “They are a talented bunch who worked hard to accomplish a very respectable finish in what is believed to be one of the toughest zones in the province.”

If your windshield was iced over this morning, you don’t need to be told that the cold season has arrived. Poco Building Supplies has what you need to get ready for the coming cold season. Getting your home ready now can save you some costly repairs if things go wrong. Pipe insulation, faucet covers and pipe heating cables can go a long way with problem areas, preventing costly pipe breaks and repairs. If you haven’t done so already, it’s also a great time to change your furnace filters. We have a wide range of economic filters as well as hypoallergenic microparticulate filters. With heaters and furnaces being used more frequently, it’s also a great time to check the batteries in your smoke alarms. We have lots of stock of space heaters as well as construction heaters to keep your shop or basement warm. We also have plenty of windshield washer and anti-freeze fluid – get some before you run out. Our Paderno kicks off this weekend, with great savings on a wide range of products. Pots and pans, serving trays, knives and other kitchen accessories are all on sale. Great time to buy for the upcoming holiday feasts.
