Anti-bullying bylaw backed Church bells to

PoCo council moves toward passing first regulation of its kind in B.C. John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com It was raining pink in Port Coquitlam on Monday night. At City Hall, where every politician and staff member was decked out in pink shirts with the slogan, “I Am Someone,” PoCo council began putting together the framework for what could become B.C.’s first anti-bullying bylaw. The move included unanimously approving a resolution directing city staff to prepare a report around how other jurisdictions — namely Edmonton and Regina — have instituted similar bylaws. Along with the request for a bylaw, the resolution also called for assurances that the necessary support be available to those who are bullied. Monday’s unanimous vote was preceded by a presentation from Dominion Lending Centres president Gary Mauris, who is spearheading the Be Someone anti-bullying awareness campaign. “I want the councillors and the mayor to look at this bylaw and say, “Listen, we can make a difference,’” he said. Compelled to act after the suicide of PoCo teen Amanda Todd in October, Mauris created the Be Someone campaign last month. And according to the life-long PoCo resident, he has received both national and international support on the issue from virtually all walks of life. “I have put a very, very strong program together with a legion of volunteers with thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars to serve as a gift to our community,” he said. PoCo Mayor Greg Moore previously told The NOW the bylaw could entail fines ranging from $200 to $2,000, though the focus would be around education and behavioural changes rather than ticketing.

conceded. “That’s not what this is for. It’s a statement. It’s optics. It’s about saying we are going to make a difference.”

Once complete, the report coming out of Monday’s meeting will be sent to the city’s community safety committee.

In the absence of a community-based solution, Port Coquitlam council unanimously voted to maintain the status quo in what appears to be the final chapter in the church bell saga at Our Lady of the Assumption Church. With council chambers packed and tempers occasionally boiling over, council voted down a staff recommendation that would have capped the church bells’ sound level at between 45 and 55 decibels. The proposed bylaw would have also applied to other buildings throughout the city, including schools and other institutions. But instead of going that route, council chose to stick with what’s already in place — a wholesale exemption from the city’s noise bylaw. “The volume of my voice right now is 60 decibels,” said Coun. Brad West, a parish member at Our Lady of the Assumption. “So the idea of having church bells ringing less than this conversation that we’re having right now, I think is patently ridiculous.” Coun. Dean Washington, deputy chair of the city’s community safety committee, “This is not a freedom argued the decibel limit was too far-reaching in scope, and of religion issue. Let’s would have negatively impactplease look at what ed schools and other instituthis is really about tions within the city. “This is most likely a no-win — and that’s noise.” situation … I say it’s a no win Wendy McHaffie because it’s reached the point Prairie Avenue Resident where we’re now considering a bylaw instead of what both [community safety committee chair Coun. Mike Forrest] and myself wished to accomplish as a community solution,” he said. Prairie Avenue resident Wendy McHaffie, who lives near the church, was joined by a handful of other area residents asking council to adopt the proposed bylaw, though her group was far outnumbered by the scores of church parishioners in attendance. McHaffie argued the bells ring for anywhere from two to five minutes at a time on an almost daily basis, and church officials have not cooperated with neighbourhood residents in trying to reach a compromise. “This is not a freedom of religion issue,” she said. “Let’s please look at what this is really about — and that’s noise.” But Our Lady of the Assumption Church representative Paul Dufault said the church has met a number of the city’s requests in limiting the bells’ volume and how often they ring on a daily basis. He also noted sound dampening equipment has been installed in the bell tower to ensure the bells do not ring above 70 decibels. “The bells aid us in our worship of God,” Dufault said, adding they do not ring past 6 p.m. on any given day. Like others around the council table, Mayor Greg Moore lamented the fact the city had to intervene, noting the church is a “real gem in our community.” “I think it’s too bad that it’s taken so much time and it’s caused bad relations between neighbours and the church,” he said. Coun. Forrest was absent from Monday’s vote.

Political foes are real-life friends

Right-and left-wing city councillors work together to support community organizations Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

lowning around at the gym with boxing gloves on is nothing unusual for Tri-Cities councillors Diana Dilworth and Selina Robinson. Unlike some political opposites who might use those same gloves to actually inflict a hurting, nothing could be further from the minds of the two politicians. Dilworth, a long-time Port Moody councillor, and Robinson, a two-time Coquitlam councillor, are friends. Not the kind of faux friendship some politicians might put on for the public, where they eventually turn their backs and grumble once an event or meeting is over. The two women are truly friends. They work out together, support each other in their personal lives, partner to help local charities and — from Jeremy Deutsch/NOW time to time — finish each Diana Dilworth, left, has campaigned for the BC Liberals, while Selina Robinson, right, will run for the NDP in May. others’ sentences.

Forensic patient reported missing Police columnist Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com It’s been six days and there is still no sign of a missing patient from the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Coquitlam. A Canada-wide warrant has been issued for 58-year-old Kurt Derksen. Coquitlam Mounties said the patient was out on a pass Thursday at his brother’s home in Richmond when he left the house. Derksen is described as a Caucasian man standing five-feet nine-inches tall with short brown hair and blue eyes. He has a full beard and is possibly wearing glasses. Police are asking the public not to approach Derksen, but rather to call 911. Derksen is the second patient to go missing from the hospital in recent

weeks. Charles Albert Hansen, 60, was reported missing on Nov. 22, but returned to the hospital a couple of days later. Several patients have gone missing from the hospital this year, but most were returned within a couple of days. However, one patient who went missing last spring is still at large. David Fomradas, 34, went missing in May on an unescorted day pass and has not been seen since. Fomradas is the man behind a bizarre carjacking in 2009 involving Vancouver actress Carly Pope. His disappearance, along with that of another patient, prompted two reviews of the hospital’s unescorted day-pass program and an outcry from politicians and residents in the community. The hospital also temporarily suspended the program until an internal review was complete.

a lot of people out there who need to be taken to task.” And while Reynolds doesn’t necessarily disagree with Reid’s suggestion, she realizes city bylaw workers and local Mounties can’t monitor the school at all times. Instead, her best-case scenario would see the centre line moved slightly west, eliminating any on-street parking on the west side of Falcon. That additional space would then free up enough room on the east side the street — the side the school is located on — for one lane of traffic, and another designated lane for drop-offs only. Staff will likely report back to council on the issue next year.

PoCo a leader in anti-bullying efforts

K

udos to the City of Port Coquitlam for taking a stand against bullying. On Monday, city council took the first steps toward passing an anti-bullying bylaw, with the aim being to educate, rather than fine, those engaging in bullying. Just one day earlier, Mayor Greg Moore addressed a crowd of hundreds participating in the Snowflake Walk, an event aimed at showing those who are being bullied they’re not alone. Participants, who came from across the Lower Mainland, wore pink T-shirts with the message “I am someone,” in honour of Amanda Todd, the PoCo teen who committed suicide two months ago after relentless bullying. In a video she posted on YouTube detailing her struggles, Amanda held up a sign saying “I have nobody. I need someone.” Her message became the inspiration for the phrase on the T-shirts, as well as the Be Someone campaign, which features decals posted in the windows of businesses to show they offer a refuge for people being bullied. While it’s easy to attack PoCo’s proposed anti-bullying bylaw as difficult to enforce or outside the city’s realm of influence, its real effect on bullying will likely be felt in the form of peer pressure — the good kind, which has made harmful actions such as smoking and drinking and driving much less prevalent in our society. Education campaigns work for public health problems, and in many ways bullying fits that definition. So the city deserves praise for stepping up to the plate in the fight against bullying, a plague we need to stamp out. And so do all of those people who turned up at the Snowflake Walk and took their own stand against bullying — especially the youth, who are showing their generation nobody should ever feel totally alone.

employment standards and apprenticeship training. But there is no indication the bulk of the province’s labour code will be altered in any meaningful way. What else? Well, Dix has ruled out increases to stumpage fees for forest companies any time soon. He’s said no to reduced funding for independent schools. He’s committed to holding an inquiry into the sale of B.C. Rail — but a narrowly defined one with strict spending controls. The environment file will be a tricky one to navigate. Dix has ruled out placing a moratorium on fracking, and instead has said he will opt for a scientific review of the controversial practice (which involves injecting massive amounts of water into the ground to free up natural gas deposits). And he has yet to take a position on the Kinder Morgan pipeline, which is facing mounting opposition. The NDP already adamantly opposes the Enbridge pipeline, and presumably has to take care not to be opposed to all industrial development, so its opposition to the Kinder Morgan project is not guaranteed. On the spending side, about the only proposals would see the NDP increase funding for skills training in post-secondary institutions, as well as student financial aid. As I said, the actual NDP platform will be released next spring, after the B.C. Liberals release the next budget. But all indications so far point to people being more surprised by what’s not in it, rather than what actually is. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Letters How can Port Moody consider a tax hike this big? Re: “City weighs 6.65% tax hike,” Friday, Dec. 7. Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay and council: After reading the shocking news about council’s projected tax increase for 2013, I concluded that anything I might have to say would be ignored. Now I read Jock Finlayson’s commentary on how municipal governments are leading the taxation and spending parade, I’ve concluded every voice that can be raised on this issue should be raised. So, I ask: How can Port Moody’s elected council even think of a nearly seven-per-cent increase in property taxes for 2013? I know some members of this council have tried to resist some increases in expenses, only to be outvoted. Mayor Clay claims in a local news report that much of the city’s budget woes can be placed on previous administrations — so I must conclude he’s pointing the finger at himself and three of our current councillors, who have been in those administrations for at least six years. Hopefully they all will have learned by now that they need to be tougher on spending and will have the courage to do that. I am also concerned about a couple of other things. From all accounts, councillors have allowed themselves to be distracted from their real responsibilities by flights of fancy, led by our three newest members of council, into areas over which council has no jurisdiction, among them a bylaw banning shark fin soup from our city. The merits of protecting sharks are beside the point. There are better ways than bylaws to put this concern before appropriate authorities with jurisdiction. I don’t expect a lawsuit — but the risk of more city costs to pay for a

legal defence against such a challenge is there, especially in the wake of the recent Ontario court throwing out Toronto’s bylaw. It also seems apparent from the published budget projection numbers that we taxpayers are paying heavily for the election contributions our local unions have made to many of the councillors who have been more than generous in their approval of increased pay and benefits to city staff. Also, apparently we are feeling an income pinch which, I suggest, will continue, at least in part because of anti-business attitudes displayed by some councillors. In light of the recent report on councillor spending for travel to conferences and the like, it also seems apparent that it’s too much to ask many members of council To The to remember that we who pay the taxes are not getting six per cent and seven per cent increases in our incomes and thus should not be subjected to such increases in property tax and other municipal levies.

able to sue our government over potential lost profits due to common-sense legislation, local buying practices and job creation. The results will be determined in secret tribunals, and we may never know that taxpayer dollars will be paid out to these foreign companies due to our efforts to keep our air and water clean, and our local economy viable. Canada has already spent hundreds of millions of dollars in penalties due to similar parts of the North American Free Trade Agreement, and is currently being sued by a U.S. corporation because Quebec decided to put a temporary ban on fracking so it can study its controversial health and safety impacts. Please, contact your member of Parliament and ask them where they stand — let’s keep Canada and our taxes in the hands of Editor Canadians. Erin Newell Coquitlam

Letters

Keep Canada and our taxes in the hands of Canadians I was disturbed to discover that our government had approved a deal to let China own part of the tar sands. This deal is bad for Canada, and it was announced late in the day on Friday in the hopes that no one would notice. But there’s something that would make this deal worse. The China/Canada trade deal (FIPA) is awaiting cabinet’s approval, and if that happens Chinese companies operating in Canada will be

We’ll give you that beautiful smile

Merry Christmas to all I am writing because I have heard over and over from the Christian parents at my children’s school, and other parents from other district schools, about how their schools only allow “Happy Holidays” as the greeting for the Christmas holidays. Those parents feel the loss of their specific holiday festivities. I do understand their predicament and I also understand the need to assign the greeting “Happy Holidays” due to the cultural and religious diversity that exist now among all of us. But let’s be straight: Dec. 25 is in place due to the belief of a religion — that Jesus was born that day and hence the celebration. I am a Muslim by title, born and raised in Pakistan, where they celebrate Eid as the major festival for the nation. Even those who are not

Muslim celebrate the same because they like to. If I were living there still and that country would no more be an Islamic country, I would feel the loss of my festival too. It would hurt me. As for Muslims, they believe in Jesus anyways; what harm is there, therefore, to celebrate in Jesus’ name when they celebrate in Muhammad’s name? The Quran has specified to make no distinction among the messengers, and that includes Jesus and Moses too. From that respect, Muslims should celebrate Jewish holidays too, like the recent Hanukkah. I drove by yesterday and saw all the beautiful lightings, and it just filled me up with joy. Living for 18 years now in Canada, it is my country and I personally do not find anything wrong with calling this festival by its true identity: “Merry Christmas to all of you!” Humera Ahsanullah Coquitlam

Coquitlam approves 2.95-per-cent tax hike With the exception of Coun. Lou Sekora — who traditionally opposes budget bylaws — Coquitlam council unanimously passed what is the lowest tax increase in the city since 2005. The fourth and final reading of the 2013 budget bylaw will result in an average tax increase of 2.95 per cent — after a one-per-cent tax shift, that number will translate into a 3.34-per-cent increase for residential properties and a 2.34-per-cent increase for businesses. The 2013 rates mean the owner of the average residential home assessed at $565,000 will pay about $2,911 in property taxes and levies — $95 more than last year. Of that $95 increase, $64 comes from taxes, while the remaining $31 comes from utility charges for water, sewer and solid waste tipping fees. Some of the factors that

jkurucz@thenownews.com The conversion of a controversial property on Marmont Street moved one step closer to reality Monday, as Coquitlam council voted overwhelmingly in favour of changing the site into an affordable housing complex for seniors. Council passed the second and third readings of a zoning amendment that would see the duplex that’s currently on the site changed into a sevenunit development that would provide for low- or moderateincome seniors’ housing. Located at 352 Marmont St., the project is being proposed by the Bulgarian Home Society of B.C. If given fourth and final reading, the project would be funded by BC Housing. The proposed conversion drew a rash of negative feedback from area residents during last month’s public consultation phase. At the time, all the public feedback the city received was in opposition to the development — increased crime and traffic, and the belief that property values would decrease were some of the main concerns raised. Coun. Mae Reid was the lone councillor to vote against the zoning amendment. twitter.com/johnkurucz

Now in its 16th year, the Santa Train collects toys on behalf of Christmas bureaus throughout the communities West Coast Express serves, including SHARE in the TriCities, the Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows Christmas Hamper Society, and the Christmas Bureau in Mission. In 2011, West Coast Express collected more than 3,900 toys and $1,260 in cash donations. “West Coast Express passengers have embraced the Santa Train because it’s a fun-filled way to give back to families in need in their communities,” said Fred Cummings, president and general manager of West Coast Express.

S M Y T H & C O M PA N Y BARRISTERS & SOLICITORS Q: My spouse is abusive to me. What can I do? A. The Christmas Season seems an unusual time to reflect on family violence. Unfortunately, unrealistic expectations, financial pressure, and consumption of alcohol are all factors known to increase domestic spousal abuse during the holidays. Spousal assaults may begin with verbal abuse Margaret Smyth which can escalate to physical abuse and tends to become more frequent and severe over time. Assistance is available for any victim of family violence. Police should be involved whenever an assault has been committed, as they are trained to intervene and defuse the immediate threat of harm. Civil courts provide restraining orders which prevent contact and may include home-occupancy and child custody terms. If physical violence, emotional or verbal abuse occurs in your home, contact experienced professionals for counselling and legal advice.

ANIMAL HOSPITAL CHRISTMAS PET HAZARDS

DECORATIONS & CHRISTMAS TREES: • Pine needles, when ingested, can puncture holes in the intestines. • Do not allow pets to drink holiday tree 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 D r. N e n a d K a r l i , anything of a string nature; tinsel can cause choking and intestinal obstruction. Angel hair can be especially dangerous since it is made DVM & Assoc. 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.

Q: Our teenagers are concerned that they’ll be bored on a cruise. Is there anything to keep them occupied?

A: Many teens who agree to go on a cruise with their parents secretly (or not secretly) hope they won’t have to spend too much time with them on the ship. Cruise lines understand this, and grant teens’ wishes with teen clubs and lounges. For your peace of mind, crew members who have experience working with teens provide non-parental supervision. Assure your teen that your cruise ship will have adult-free spaces where teens can gather, relax, and even talk about parents with others who understand. To find out more about the teen clubs on various cruise lines, talk with your Cruise holidays personal cruise expert. Come visit us and our travel professionals at the corner of Ottawa and Lougheed next to White Spot with ample storefront parking.

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.

Brothers Dino and Bobby Milacic show off their new mural, painted by a friend inside Mark’s Auto Body in PoCo.

Mural a tribute to race track Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

I

DENTIST I am scared to see a dentist. What can I do? Almost everyone experiences some form of anxiety around having treatment at the dental offi ce. For some people this anxiety can be debilitating; for some people, it just makes them Dr. Myrna Pearce uncomfortable and they tend to avoid treatment even though they understand that it is needed. The most important thing to understand is that you are not alone and dental professionals understand and are here to help. Oral Conscious Sedation is available to many patients as a way to reduce anxiety and make it possible for even highly phobic patients to successfully obtain the dental treatment they want in a relaxed, comfortable, safe environment.

Dr. Myrna Pearce and Associates

GENERAL DENTISTRY 2203-2850 Shaughnessy Street 604-552-9700 www.portcoquitlamcosmeticdentist.com

t’s safe to say Dino Milacic grew up with the sounds of screeching tires and roaring engines. Living close to the old Westwood Racing Circuit, the racing enthusiast would listen to the cars echo through the valley on race day. It was a formative time that would spur Milacic’s passion for motor sports. For more than 30 years, the Westwood track — built in 1959 — played host to some of the best in the sport, including such luminaries as Mario Andretti, Bobby Rahal and Gilles Villeneuve. But as many local followers of the sport know, the hallowed track saw its last checkered flag in 1990 when it was closed to make way for development. But Milacic, who now runs Mark’s Auto Body in Port Coquitlam with his brother Bobby, still longs for the old track. That’s where his everyday life met with his part-time passion for racing. So after a successful season this year on a B.C. racing series, Milacic got to

thinking. He wanted some way to pay homage to the track that had played such a pivotal role in his life. “It motivated me to revive the legend and do some honour to the memory of the old race track,” Milacic told The NOW. At first it started as a bit of a joke with artist friend Patrick Golding. The PoCo shop had a giant 60-foot bare wall. Milacic proposed painting a mural depicting the old raceway on the bare wall. “When I told him [Golding] what I wanted to do, it was a joke at first,” he conceded. But after more discussion, the plan moved from just an idea to reality. Starting in the summer, Golding, with the guidance of Milacic, set out to create the mural. For three months, little by little, the mural was painted. Golding used photos and the memories supplied by Milacic to create the finished piece. Although not era-specific, the mural would depict a scene from the course on

any given race day. The work of art would also include details, right down to the actual cars that graced the track in its heyday. In November, Milacic officially unveiled the mural at a Vintage Racing Club BC meeting at his shop. The club is made up mostly of veterans of the course. For some on hand, the sight of the mural brought out not only good memories, but tears. Milacic said he’s thrilled with the mural, though he noted it isn’t quite complete. Over the next few months the finishing touches will be added to the wall, including a billboard displayed at the side of the track. “I think there’s a lot more history in this area than people are aware about,” Milacic said. “So many people are not even aware we had a race track in Westwood Plateau.” With the track immortalized on the wall of the auto body shop, it’s a piece of Coquitlam that he hopes won’t soon be forgotten. twitter.com/jercoquitlamnow

❄ Christmas costume party: Costume parties aren’t just for Halloween. This holiday season, consider making your holiday bash a costume party, encouraging guests to dress up as their favourite characters from holiday tales like Frosty the Snowman, A Christmas Carol or any of the host of beloved holiday legends. ❄ Caribbean Christmas: The weather come the holiday season may be the one thing to put a damper on the festivities. To combat blue feelings from potentially inclement weather, consider a Caribbean theme for your holiday party this season. Rather than wearing sweaters and long pants, wear beach attire and give the party a touch of the Caribbean. Outfit your home in beach decor and serve food and drinks reminiscent of the Caribbean instead of more traditional holiday fare like eggnog and gingerbread cookies. ❄ Film festival: Holiday movies are another tradition of the season, so why not invite friends and family over for a holiday film marathon? Include classics like It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Story and encourage

There’s an easier way to light your tree

L

ighting a Christmas tree may seem like child’s play, but time and again people struggle with the task.

This is actually how the tree decorators at Rockefeller Center in New York City do the famous tree year after year. This method helps eliminate tangled wires and empty spots.

Untangling wires and wrapping them around boughs can be nerve wracking, but lighting a tree doesn’t have to be a chore when you follow some tips from the professionals. First, keep in mind that wrapping lights around the tree horizontally is more work and often doesn’t produce a multi-dimensional effect. Rather, string the lights from the trunk up to the top, working vertically.

E W UY ! B LD O G

Remember to plug in the strands of lights before you begin to check for burnt-out bulbs and to adjust the spacing of lights to prevent dark spots. Think about varying light bulb sizes to add more dimension. String an inner layer of small LED white lights to produce an inner glow on the tree before adding larger, coloured lights

Sports Games To Go

Ravens rev it up against Mouat Hawks Hardwood action leads off this week’s slate of sporting events as the holidays approach. While some sports take time off to rest and recuperate during the seasonal festivities, other sports continue and even heat up — numerous minor hockey tournaments are scheduled for the Tri-Cities and surrounding areas during the next few weeks. Here are some top options for local sports fans: HAWKS VISIT THE FOXHOLE The Terry Fox Ravens host the W.J. Mouat Hawks in senior boys basketball action. A classic Fraser Valley match-up featuring a pair of perennial rivals tonight (Wednesday) at Terry Fox gym, 8 p.m. The defending provincial champion Ravens will be playing in their second day in a row, after raising the B.C. banner on Tuesday in their home opener. RIVALS TAKE STOCK It’s been different fates for two of the usual standard bearers in the Fraser Valley Soccer League’s premier circuit. The 5-4-1 Port Moody Gunners are in the hunt for third place, while defending champion PoCo FC is last overall with a 1-5-3 record. If anything can nudge them out of a losing funk, it’s a game against cross-district rival Port Moody. Saturday, 6 p.m. at Gates turf (Reeve St. and Wilson Ave., Port Coquitlam). BACK ON THE RAILS The Coquitlam Express are looking to enter the Christmas break with some bounce, after dropping a pair of games in Prince George on the weekend. It’ll be a key test on Saturday (7 p.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre) when Powell River comes to town. Both teams are hugging the .500 mark, but Coquitlam wants to win one at home before breaking for the holidays.

Rapids rally together for teammate Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com With the bravest faces and heaviest of hearts, the Riverside Rapids put everything they had into last week’s Telus Classic basketball tournament and came together for a teammate in tough times. Days after senior Fiona Beales’ father died of cancer, the team pushed archrival Brookswood hard before losing 79-67 in the Telus Classic bronze medal match on Saturday at UBC. As draining as the game can be, it can’t overshadow the real trials and tribulations of life, Riverside coach Paul Langford said. “We had a pretty emotional time with Fiona’s dad (Barry) passing away on Wednesday… Fiona missed Wednesday’s game but played Thursday and Friday and was there again on Saturday because it would have been what her father wanted.” Barry Beales was a dedicated supporter of the Rapids team, attending every game and virtually every practice, Langford noted. He also had taken a lot of photos of the team over the past few seasons. “It’s tough not seeing him here,” the coach said. “The game isn’t that important but it is important as part of getting back doing what makes us feel better… The team is a family and we did what families do, we rallied.” The Rapids put forth a tremendous performance in support of their teammate during the tourney, falling just one point shy of advancing to the championship final for a third straight year. It also came without the presence of Grade 11 guard Vanessa Gee, who suffered an ankle injury in their 76-67 win over St. Thomas Aquinas on Thursday. Riverside was edged 53-52 by Handsworth on Friday, despite erasing a seven-point deficit and closing within a point on Beales’ layup with nine seconds to play. She led all shooters with 19 points. A day later, they stayed close to No. 2-rated Brookswood but ran out of gas in the end. “We were tied after the first quarter and they then went up by eight,” recalled Langford. “Our kids played well, with all that had happened and being the 10th game in 10 days, we didn’t have anything left to give down the stretch.” Shae Sanchez, the Gr. 8 guard, led Riverside with 20 points, while Dani Antignani and Desha Puri contributed 15 apiece. Beales chipped in 11 points and five rebounds. The team was back at it yesterday (past The NOW’s deadline) against league rival W.J. Mouat. They then head over to Victoria to play in Lambrick Park’s Christmas Tournament.

Express lose steam, games in PG scoring for the Express, who were outshot 42-35. A day later, Prince George grabbed a quick lead and added two more in the second period to chase Cole Huggins from the Coquitlam net. Zielonka put the Express on the board with his 15th goal of the season — and league-leading ninth straight game that he’s scored. The 19-year-old right winger has also posted points in every game except his debut with the club back on Oct. 20. In 17 games, the Montreal native has accumulated 15 goals and nine assists. Getting offence from other lines on a consistent basis remains a problem, coach Jon Calvano said. “The biggest hurdle is execution,” he noted. “We’ve had our chances, we put up 40 [shots] on Sunday and should have been fine... We’re just not scoring as much as we need to.” Coquitlam wraps up its four-game road trip Friday in Langley, before returning home Saturday to host the Powell River Kings, 7 p.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre. They then take a break and doesn’t play again until Dec. 28.

Somewhere along the Cariboo Highway, momentum made a wild dash and left the Coquitlam Express to their own devices. The result wasn’t what the visitors had hoped for, dropping back-to-back road games to the Prince George Spruce Kings. The Kings bested Coquitlam 6-4 on Saturday, and followed that with a polished 4-1 decision on Sunday to move five points ahead of the Express in the race for third place. Coming on the heels of last Wednesday’s surprising 3-2 upset of the Chilliwack Chiefs, Coquitlam now holds a 15-9-1 record. The Express definitely had their chances in both tilts. On Saturday, Marc Biega’s shot with 2:53 left in the first period tied the game at 33. Prince George bounded back in front when Shayne Morrisey scored a pair in the middle period, followed by Chad Staley’s second of the night early in the third. A late goal by Philip Zielonka made it close, but the Kings held on for the win. Will Cook and Zach Pryzbek rounded out the

Coquitlam’s Larkyn Austman locked up the top spot at the Skate Canada Challenge competition last week in Regina in the junior women’s division.

Skaters grab top Challenge step Austman trains in Coquitlam and is affiliated with the Richmond-based Connaught Skating Club. Like Edwards, Austman will be looking to improve upon last year’s second-place finish — although the Coquitlam skater competed as a novice in 2011. She finished five points back of the champion. Austman’s mom believes all the hard work has put her in a good position to accomplish just that. “Her fitness level has improved to the point where she can run run that full program back to front,” she said.

Royals stake out in Canada’s top-10 Tom Berridge tberridge@royalcityrecord.com The Douglas College Royals women’s basketball team closed the first half of the PacWest schedule with momentum. A split against two of the circuit’s top teams moved the Royals up to 10th spot in the Canadian Colleges national rankings. Douglas knocked off former nationally No. 10-ranked Quest University 65-58, but let a 15point lead slip away the next day in a 60-55 loss to No. 5 Capilano Blues. The result left the Royals in sole possession of second place in the women’s division with a 6-2 record, just four points back of the unbeaten Blues. In the win against Quest, Coquitlam native Amonda Francis, a fifth-year forward, set the tone with 21 points and 13 rebounds. Francis, a Gleneagle alumna, continues to be an integral part of Douglas’ attack with the league-leading 19.67 points-per-game average, and currently sits sixth among shooters in the CCAA. She also is second in the PacWest in rebounds, with an average of 9.88 per night. “We’ve done very well,”

said second-year coach Curtis Nelson, who took over late in the season last year. “Our recruiting has been excellent. We have the right mix.” Freshman shooting guard Chloe Kennedy proved the point, averaging 16 points over the weekend. First-year guard Adelia Paul averaged 10 points and five assists, while making just four turnovers. The team also boasts fellow Coquitlam products Shanice Fuoco-Guy and Lauren Sollero. “Our goal is to be there in March and challenge for a spot at the nationals,” said Nelson. “They want to achieve and push themselves every game.” To that end, Douglas has lined up a busy slate during the December break, including a pair of games against Washington State’s Shoreline College and a tournament before restarting the regular schedule Jan. 4 against Langara. Nelson believes if the Royals can hold a team to less than 60 points, a win should be in the cards. “We like our team against any team in the country,” said Nelson. “we believe defence is a key for us... Offence comes and goes, but defence is just hard work.”
