School’s out on Monday Schools open but with very limited supervision: SD43 By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

School District 43 will be keeping schools open during the three-day job action by teachers beginning Monday but parents should keep their kids at home because there won’t be adequate supervision. Administrators will be on site, along with other excluded staff but parents are encouraged to keep their children at home, said district spokesperson Cheryl Quinton, noting Strong Start and before- and after-school programs will still be operating. The news has parents scrambling for alternatives for their children, according to Heidi Hass Gable, chair of the District Parent Advisory Council. At a meeting Wednesday, Hass Gable said, parents expressed concern over the prospect of a walkout but said they were also

worried about Bill 22 changes to classroom composition that will set aside rules limits to numbers of children with individual education plans allowed in the classroom. She said parents are afraid there won’t be funding and supports to help in classrooms where there are more children with special needs. “We, as parents, are very concer ned about those things and want to speak out about them,” Hass Gable said, noting said parents didn’t want to wade into the politics of Bill 22 or wages issues. The Coquitlam Teachers’ Association (CTA), meanwhile, says the three-day walkout is necessary to show the government teachers are unhappy with Bill 22, which will impose a cooling off period, remove class composition rules and limit mediation to non-wage issues. “It’s very draconian. It gives nothing but it takes a lot away. It’s not true mediation,” said CTA president Teresa Grandinetti. see 87% OF O TEACHERS, C S, page g A3 3

Chances end for at-risk youth Insufficient funding behind closure of Chance to Choose By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Funding cuts and rising costs have forced the closure of an employment skills pro-

gram that has helped hundreds of at-risk youth access education and find jobs. Chance to Choose co-ordinator Evelyn Humphreys confirmed this week the program, which has taught youth aged 15 to 35 about the job market for five years, will shut down March 27. Humphreys said the date was chosen to give the pro-

gram’s Port Moody landlord adequate notice, explaining that the program has faced funding problems before and was even closed briefly because funding arrived late. What’s different this time, she said, is the combination of a funding cut and higher wages for the youths, who get paid minimum wage while taking the program.

87% of teachers who voted favoured strike continued from front page

She said the walk-out notice issued by the BC Teachers’ Federation Thursday follows one of the largest turnouts ever for a vote on job action. In a statement on t h e C TA w e b s i t e , BCTF president Susan Lambert is quoted as saying teachers take the step of job action “very reluctantly.” She suggested parents and other concerned British Columbians contact their MLAs, Education Minister Georg e Abbott and Premier Christy Clark to urge them not to impose Bill 22 but to nego-

Across B.C., 87% of teachers who voted supported escalating job action from the limited teach-only campaign that began last September. In all 32,209 teachers voted, of whom 27,946 said “yes” to job action, according to the statement. M e a n wh i l e, i n a statement to the media Thursday, Abbott said all public schools will remain open during

the job action. And he noted schools will not be picketed during the strike, which means that unionized school support staff, such as special education assistants, will be present. But there will be no instruction time. The teacher job action won’t affect a board of education meeting, slated to take place Tuesday, March 6. According to Abbott, Bill 22 sets a cooling-off period and suspends the teachers’ union strike

action while calling on the assistance of a mediator. It also implements the $165-million Learning Improvement Fund and changes class composition rules but makes consultation a core duty for principals and teachers. The BCTF is concerned the fund amounts to only pennies a day for special needs students and says mediation is too restrictive in the issues it can cover. The teachers are calling for a 15% wage increase over three years while the government is imposing a net-zero mandate. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Teachers at Terry Fox secondary school staged a brief demonstration Monday but the province’s public school teachers will be on a full-scale strike for three days next week.

Services vs. taxes the talk in Port Moody City gathers feedback on its 2012 budget By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Some Port Moody residents are willing to pay more to keep the services they have, especially the city’s police force. Only a few of the 60-odd people at Wednesday’s budget town hall meeting said the proposed 6.74% tax increase — that’s $109 on a home with the average assessed value of $519,000 — is too high. “My taxes have gone up on average 7.3% in the last 10 years,” said resident Paul Hagen, noting much of the increase is to pay for salaries even though provincial government employees and many private sector workers have struggled with no pay increases due to the poor economy. “When the contracts come up for renewal, are you going to do zero increases in line with the provincial government?” he asked. In Port Moody, the contract for CUPE 825 civic workers expired at the end of 2011; firefighters have been without a contract since 2009

WHERE’S IT GOING?

Labour costs make up the biggest chunk of PoMo’s $29.7-million operating budget — 66% goes to salaries alone. Another 9% is spent on contracts and 1% goes to training and development. More than half of the proposed 6.74% increase for 2012 is for raises (3.41%) while 1.3% goes to debt associated with construction of the new fire hall. Here’s how the budget breaks down by department for a home with the statistically average assessed value of $519,000: • Police services: $8.8 million ($524 cost per household) • Fire services: $6.7 million ($398) • Community (parks and recreation): $5.9 million ($350) • Development services: $2.7 million ($162) • Corporate services: $2.3 million ($139) • Library: $1.5 million ($89) • Human resources: $912,000 ($55) • Administration: $819,000 ($48) • Legislative services: $633,000 ($38) • Fiscal services: -$486,000 (-$30) • TOTAL: $1,774 ($1,665 plus $109 proposed increase)

and police since 2010. Another resident said she was concerned with how many candidates in the 2011 election received funding from CUPE, saying it posed a conflict of interest for the council members. Rookie Mayor Mike Clay said council hasn’t yet discussed its position for contract negotiations and it would be inappropriate to suggest anything in a public forum.

Maria Wahl, who recently retired from her post as a bylaw officer and president of CUPE Local 825, led the charge in praising the city and its services. “When we go down the road of reducing services we start to erode the quality of life we enjoy,” she said. “I think taxation levels need to be as much as you need to keep the services we have.” A handful of resi-

WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?

WHAT’S IN THE BANK?

• Taxation: 51% • Utility fees: 29% • Fees and charges: 11% • Grants: 6% • Reserve transfers: 2% • Other sources: 1%

PoMo has about $650 million in assets but those are depreciating $6 million annually. It implemented the asset renewal levy in 2009 to save money for future infrastructure upgrades. • 2009: $460,000 (2%) • 2010: $171,000 (0.68%) • 2011: $84,000 (0.32%) • 2012: $139,000 (0.5%) - proposed • TOTAL: $854,000 Since 2005, PoMo’s reserves have gone from $44.1 million down to $36.2 million, with funds going to major projects such as the rec centre.

WHO PAYS WHAT?

PoMo homeowners pay the biggest share of the city’s tax revenue; that portion has grown from 48.4% in 1993 to 67.3% in 2011. In contrast, the tax burden borne by major industry has gone down from 33.7% in 1993 to 14% last year. • Residential: $19.3 million (67%) • Major industry: $4 million (14%) • Business: $4 million (14%) • Major industry (port): $701,000 (2.45%) • Light industry: $530,000 (1.8%) • Utility: $69,000 (0.31%) • Recreation/non-profit: $25,600 (0.09%)

WHAT DOES POMO OWE?

PoMo is on the hook for three loans. It will be 2043 before they’re paid off. • Recreation centre: $5 million (2005-’15); annual payments of $625,000 (2.25% tax impact) • Public safety building: $3 million (2006’26); annual payments of $241,000 (0.87%) • Fire hall #1: $9 million (2012-’43); the 2012 payment of $361,000 carries a 1.3% tax impact In the past decade, the debt per capita has gone from a low of $5 in 2004 to a high of $262 in 2006. Last year, it was $137. Projections for each of the next five years are for the debt level to go up to about $300 per person.

WHAT’S WITH UTILITIES?

Utility costs throughout Metro Vancouver have risen substantially in recent years to pay for new water and sewage treatment infrastructure. PoMo residents are paying $51 more this year than in 2011. dents, including ArtsConnect executive director Helen Daniels, said more money needs to go to arts and culture, especially since PoMo brands itself as the City of the Arts. Residents may be looking at a 6.74% increase on their tax bill but they won’t be getting anything new for it. Apart from one new police officer, the proposed 2012 budget simply maintains the existing

level of services. And the local police department is one service that PoMo won’t do without. After one resident suggested the Tri-Cities amalgamate to save money (see letter, page A12), particularly since the PoMo police department seems to cost so much, several people spoke up in defence of the PMPD. “I like having the police department,” Clay added. “It costs a little

more money but I feel safer than the 20-minute response time I might get in Coquitlam.” And while the majority of speakers said they’re happy to pay more (the “cost of a few lattes a week” for one man), Clay cautioned they have to consider all residents, not just affluent ones. Coun. Diana Dilworth, now on her 10th year at the budget table, said it’s getting more and

more difficult to keep the tax increase low, noting staff ’s original budget proposal would have meant a 12% hike. “We don’t take lightly telling you it’s a 6.74% increase,” she said. The finance committee will consider the public input at its March 6 meeting. Under provincial law, the financial plan and tax rate bylaws must be adopted by May 15. spayne@tricitynews.com

Fall protection issues cost local biz $220,000 Fines as high as $87,000 leveled against companies in Tri-Cities By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A roofing company working in Coquitlam was hit with an $87,000 fine for not using adequate fall protection on its construction site last year. Natt Roofing Ltd. may appeal the WorkSafeBC ruling, which was issued in late 2011 after a supervisor with the company and a worker were seen at risk of falling 5.5 m. The company had been warned several times before about its fall-protection issues, according to a WorkSafe’s enforcement report. “We have lots of calls from members of the general public who notice workers on roofs not using appropriate fall protection,” said Donna Freeman, spokesperson for WorkSafeBC. “A fall

It will result in a serious injury or a fatality.” Two other firms also received stiff penalties over fall-protection violations. Precision Gutters and Affiliated Roofers were both issued $35,000 fines after repeated safety violations on construction sites in Port Coquitlam Of the 19 infractions requiring enforcement in the Tri-Cities last year, 16 involved fall-protection issues,

PoMo man faces sex charge in Ont. By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Port Moody man will likely plead guilty to a charge of sexual interference in an Ontario cour t after fleeing B.C. I n Ju ly 2 0 1 1 , t h e Po r t M o o dy Po l i c e major crime section responded to a report that a 12-year-old girl had been the victim of sexual interference at the hands of her mother’s live-in boyfriend. The suspect, a 47-year-old PoMo man, was arrested a short time later and released on a promise to appear i n Po r t C o q u i t l a m provincial cour t in S e p t e m b e r. H e w a s also to abide by several conditions. The man did not appear at his next court date and a provincewide warrant was issued for his ar rest. PMPD detectives located an address for the accused in St. Thomas, Ont. and had the warrant extended Canada-wide. St. Thomas Police found the suspect had moved but located a new address, at which time the Ontario Provincial Police arrested the man in Elgin County. After discussions between Crown coun-

sel and the man’s lawyer, it was decided the charges would be waived to Ontario and the man would plead guilty. He is currently out on recognizance while he awaits sentencing. To avoid identifying the victim, the Port Moody Police are not releasing the name of the suspect.

MURDER PLOT

A Por t Coquitlam man charged in a murder-for-hire plot will appear in court next week to set a date for his sentencing. Jordon Joseph Doiron was one of two men hired by Surrey’s Liza Belcort to kill her ex-husband. Doiron and Belcort, as well as David Laidlaw of Langley, were charged i n t h e Va n c o u v e r Police Department’s crackdown on organized crime in early 2010. Doiron was found guilty of conspiracy to commit murder last November in B.C. Provincial Court in Vancouver. His original sentencing, scheduled for last month, has been delayed. He’ll be in court March 5 to set a new date. spayne@tricitynews.com

making up $220,000 of the $280,000 worth of fines issued. Penalties ranged from as low as $1,000 (G&J Roofing for a violation in Port Moody) to as high as Natt Roofing’s $87,000 fine. But it was not just fall protection that was an issue in the Tri-Cities. Port Coquitlam company Quality Insertions received a $38,460 fine after one of the company’s workers injured an ar m after reaching into an energized paper folding machine to remove an obstruct i o n . A c c o rd i n g t o WorkSafeBC, the company was cited for failing to provide the necessary training and supervision to ensure safety. CBVL Robotics in Coquitlam received a $20,000 fine after a worker was found to be welding in an area with no exhaust ventilation, a repeated violation, the enforcement report stated. Across the province, more than 352 penal-

ties were issued by WorkSafeBC for a total of $4.8 million in fines; 16 penalties involved work-related deaths. “Monetary penalties are imposed on employers for repeated or serious violations of occupational health and safety regulations and to motivate to comply with their le gal responsibilities,” said Jeff Dolan, director of investigations with WorkSafeBC. “An employer is not penalized if they have taken all reasonable steps to prevent risks to their workers.” T he highest penalty imposed in 2011 was a $250,000 fine against Peter Kiewit Infrastructure Co. for an incident where a worker was struck and killed by a boulder in Powell River. Unstable ground had been previously cited in a safety assessments of the work site and WorkSafeBC investigators said there was a lack of supervision.

Ammonia leak forces Lilydale evacuation Staff at a Port Coquitlam poultry processor were forced out of the facility Tuesday afternoon after a tank full of ammonia sprung a leak. PoCo Fire Chief Nick Delmonico said employees were evacuated from Lilydale Food Products on Kingsway Avenue for about three hours while firefighters set up command posts and escorted a chemical specialist inside to replace a

valve and ventilate the building. No injuries were reported. Last September, the Alberta government laid charges against Lilydale Inc. after an ammonia leak at its Calgary plant two years prior. The province said the Edmonton-based company didn’t make a timely report about the incident to Alberta Environment. Lilydale has had a plant in PoCo since 1970.

Cuts limit programs continued from front page

She explained that Service Canada funding was cut to $412,000 this year from $432,000 last year. While staff cuts could have been made to keep the program running, Humphreys said doing so would have severely restricted the program, which is geared to highrisk, vulnerable youth. Thomas Tam, CEO of SUCCESS, which operates the program for Service Canada, confirmed the funding was reduced to keep costs in line with other youth employment programs. But he noted that, unlike other programs geared to youth, Chance to Choose worked with young people with multiple barriers to employment and needed higher staff ratios. “Service Canada thinks our unit costs are more expensive than other similar projects. They put a critical challenge on the safety and quality of the program,” he said, adding that the program would be missed because the youth do community projects as part of their job training and because there are few programs serving youth in the Tri-Cities. The closure announcement comes just a month after Chance to Choose held a reunion for some of its 300 graduates, which drew politicians from all levels of government. On Wednesday, The TriCity News published a story about a successful graduate, a former drug addict who is now employed as a child care worker. Humphreys said she appealed to municipal and provincial governments to help with supports such as free rent but nothing could be arranged in time. “What makes me angry is nobody is paying attention to the savings,” Humphreys said, noting that the program, which provides job skills education, as well as First Aid, SuperHost and Food Safe training, costs $12,000 per young person. Those who graduate from Chance to Choose go on to complete their schooling or find jobs, she said. Without these kinds of intense programs, she said, youth could end up in the justice system, which can cost $300 a day. Service Canada was making arrangements to contact The Tri-City News regarding funding but hadn’t come up with the details by the’ print deadline. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

A group of women is rallying to keep the Tri-Cities’ women’s centre open. Chantale-Lyne Gosselin is organizing a fundraising campaign and rally to support the centre, which is operated by Tri-City Transitions and is being shut down for a month for a program review. The women’s resource centre in Port Coquitlam will be closed to the public for a month while management and staff determine the future of programs operating out of the rented bungalow at 2420 Mary Hill Rd. Gosselin said she plans a rally outside the centre tomorrow (Friday) at noon. For information, email her at lynelyne30@ yahoo.com

The women’s centre, a fixture in a city-owned building on Mary Hill Road in Port Coquitlam, is reassessing the programs and services it provides. Tri-CityTransitions has operated the resource centre for more than 30 years. In a Tri-City News story Wednesday, executive director Carol Metz Murray said the centre is operating with 75% less funding than it did a decade ago. Programs such as Empowering Moms will continue to operate out of the bungalow and other groups will be allowed to use

the space but there will be no public hours, which means the dropin, clothing bank, community kitchen and job search computers will be off-limits to dozens of women who use the services daily. Decisions regarding the future of the women’s centre should be known by the end of the month, with any changes introduced by April 1. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Graffiti ongoing issue at schools Taggers and other vandals continue to plague schools in School District 43, according to the latest reports. A weekly summary of vandalism from SD43 shows 10 schools were hit with graffiti since last week: Birchland, Irvine, Hazel Trembath, Miller Park and Leigh elementary schools as well as Sir Frederick Banting, Citadel, Kwayhquitlum, Minnekhada and Pitt River middle schools. As well, windows were broken at Irvine and Harbour View elementary schools; two windows were broken at Winslow Centre in Coquitlam; and one window each was broken at Como Lake, Mallard and Citadel middle schools. The reported incidents took place between Feb. 23 and 28. Typically, broken windows and graffiti are repaired or painted over immediately, and the school district is working with Coquitlam RCMP to crack down on graffiti. Cpl. Jamie Chung of the Coquitlam RCMP said police welcome the co-operation from SD43 to photograph graffiti and send it along for identification and tracking. “From our perspective, we’re always interested in working with groups and individuals on this type of vandalism. One tag alone is insignificant to people but one tag often attracts many other tags. You just feel unsafe... it’s sticking out like an eyesore,” Chung said. The investigation has led to two charges of mischief and possible charges against two other youths (see related story below). dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Charges against one for graffiti An 18-year-old Coquitlam man has been charged with two counts of mischief following a police investigation of graffiti vandalism at local schools. Cpl. Jamie Chung of the Coquitlam RCMP confirmed that Dyllon Roberts will be making a second appearance in court March 7. Two other youths were identified as part of an ongoing investigation between the RCMP and School District 43. But Chung said charges have not been laid and it is possible that the two youths, who are under the age of 18, could go through a restorative justice program. “It is probably a better system for the youth than going through the courts,” Chung said, noting that the School District 43 might get some benefit, too, if the youths are remorseful and willing to make amends. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Q WHAT WE THINK:

re drivers ready to pay more to use roads and bridges in order to raise cash for much-needed improvements? That’s the question being asked by some politicians as a rising howl is heard from people who will pay a hefty $3 to cross the new Port Mann bridge when it opens. Although widespread road pricing won’t be implemented any time soon because of its complexity and logistics, there may be increased appetite to spread the pain throughout the region, not just on new bridges. Those who have to cross the Port Mann to get to and from work are particularly incensed about having to pay $1,400 more a year in transportation costs when those who don’t cross bridges but still use the freeway get off free (this ignores the fact housing costs are typically higher in areas that don’t require a bridge to get home). Maybe it makes sense to make everybody pay a little so a few people don’t have to pay a lot, although it will be a hard-sell unless everybody benefits from improvements.

hree young people. Three random, tragic deaths. One thing in common. They all took ecstasy. And it killed them. One was an accomplished figure skater and rugby player. Another was a budding musician. All had full lives of promising potential ahead of them. And all that potential was snuffed out by a little pill that was supposed to make them feel good.

In Cheryl’s case, it was ostensibly to help with weight control. But that’s the problem with ecstasy, or MDMA, and its even more unpredictable imitators. They often do far more than what they’re supposed to do. Taking ‘E’ is playing chemical roulette. You could do it once and feel good. You could do it a lot and stay lucky. Or you could do it one more time — or just once in your life — and lose. Eighteen young people have died in B.C. in the past 14 months due to this drug, or some concoction sold as ecstasy. That’s the other big issue with the little pills with the cute names such as Hug Drug, Candy, Beans, Scooby Snacks, Pingers, Thizz and Care Bears. As with the party snack Bits & Bites, you get something different in every handful. Crystal meth, cocaine, LSD, OxyContin, ketamine (an anaesthetic used by veterinarians), GHB (a date-rape drug) and a long list of other highly toxic, wild-card substances

IN QUOTES

“As with the party snack Bits & Bites, you get something different in every handful [of ecstacy].” Andrew Holota are thrown into the recipes by the back-room bathtub chemists. The latest, deadliest ingredient to lace the alphabet soup of ecstasy is PMMA. It’s another synthetic stimulant, five times more powerful than MDMA, and slower to react. That encourages users to take another dose, and maybe even more after that. And then suddenly, in some users, the body boils over. If the temperature remains high for more than an hour, the chance of death or permanent brain damage is 75%. MDMA/PMMA was responsible for five of

the B.C. ecstasy deaths last year. Tyler’s was one of them. Eventually, the PMMA-tainted pills might disappear off the street. Losing one’s buyers isn’t good for the drug trade, after all. But as emergency room doctors point out, that will just leave the rest of the ecstasy variants out there, and the dying will continue. It doesn’t have to be this way, of course. There is a way to end the twisted, ugly irony of this drug called ecstasy. Young people can listen to the messages being delivered by police, and medical authorities and school officials and, hopefully, every caring parent and caregiver out there. That message is simple: Say “No.” Or you don’t have to listen to the police and doctors and teachers and parents. Just listen to Tyler and Cheryl and Kato. But that’s impossible, you say. They’re dead. That’s right. Andrew Holota is editor of The Abbotsford News, a Black Press sister paper of The Tri-City News.

FACE TO FACE: Is enough being done to control pooches and their poo?

Dirty dogs! Get the heck off me I

am no friend of man’s best friend. It’s a mutual thing: Dogs don’t like me and I don’t like them. So when I’m walking in a public park, I don’t want to be sniffed, licked or even barked at by any dog whether it’s fierce or friendly. Is that too much to ask? If you’ve been to a local park lately, you know what I’m talking about. Despite bylaws that require pooches to be on leashes, most dogs aren’t. Instead, mutts are running around chasing one another, scaring little — and not so little — kids and putting their noses where they don’t belong. Not only do off-leash dogs infringe on the enjoyment of the rest of the park goers but many canines will often trample soil and vegetation, chase wildlife, create sediment in the waterways and leave piles of uncollected, disgusting dog waste. My gripe isn’t with the city governments. Our city councils and bylaw officers have done their best to curb the problem. My problem is with inconsiderate and selfish dog owners. In 2011, with limited resources, the city of Coquitlam issued just 45

$150 fines to dog owners for breaking the leash bylaw. But we all know the problem is much bigger. To their credit, the city governments have also spent money to build designated off-leash parks. Coquitlam has four designated off-leash areas, Port Moody has four and Port Coquitlam has two. And these sites don’t come cheap. It can cost up to $50,000 or even $100,000 to set up one of these parks plus another $10,000 a year to maintain. And believe it or not, the doggy lobbyists want even more of our hard-earned money to subsidize their animal kinships. They argue we need more dog parks because the population is growing and the tiny square footage of suites in new developments is catering to empty nesters, many of whom own dogs but no cars. Am I missing something? If you live in a small apartment, should you really own a dog? My advice to dog lovers: Love your dogs but love them on leashes or love them on your own private property. And please, keep them away from me.

Here boy, here boy! Good boy W

hen I was a lad, we kids played touch football daily on a little sloped park down the block. It usually took us 10 or 20 minutes to remove all the dog poo before we could play. We took turns bringing a little shovel. But we never got it all and our jeans and runners always ended up smeared with smelly dog excrement. Today, society has largely cleaned up the dog poo in our communities because, for the most part, people clean up after their pets. How did we accomplish this? Not with draconian bylaws but by appealing to the responsibility of dog owners, by erecting signs and by supplying bags for owners. So, having been the loving owner of the cutest cocker spaniel ever (God rest Maggie’s soul), I still ponder the on-the-leash, all-the-time, everywhere dog bylaws in the TriCities. On those few days on the inlet trail in Port Moody when the walking public was sparse enough for us to let Maggie off her leash, I remember the glee with which she ran exultant through the bush, chasing squirrels and loving life. Yes, that’s a confession: I let her

off the leash — and I’d do it again. Poor Maggie’s doggy liberty was expunged, lost to a bylaw written for a bunch of snarling, aggressive, slobbering Hooches (and that’s just the owners), intimidating both Maggie and the humans trying to enjoy a day in the park. So Maggie was sentenced to the awful, mucky, off-leash runs that are an eyesore, full of huge, aggressive dogs of which our happy little bundle of friendliness was terrified. It’s ironic that my Maggie-hating colleague supports government control of our pets and their feces but not our guns. Of course, the comfort and safety of the public is paramount, and allowing huge dogs with ViseGrip jaws to run around amidst the kids at Blue Mountain Park or White Pine Beach is probably not reasonable. But maybe the “aggressive dog” designation could be accompanied by an “adorable, friendly, nonyappy” dog designation, which would have allowed my wonderful dog to blissfully gambol off leash for an hour or two? OK, you win. It would never work. Unless you knew Maggie.

Four-storey homes a thing of the past in Port Moody? By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Moody is considering changes to its zoning bylaw to prevent people from building four-storey houses. As it’s written, the bylaw limits the height of single-family homes to 10.5 m (34.5 ft.), or three storeys. On sloped lots, however, that allows owners to build a four-storey home where the bottom is a walk-out basement. A staff report presented to council Tuesday noted the zoning bylaw change is needed to preserve the low-density form and character in PoMo’s single-family neighbourhoods. Council (with councillors Zoe Royer and Diana Dilworth absent) passed first two readings of the bylaw and referred it to a public hearing to be held Tuesday, March 13 at city hall. Other PoMo news:

STOP & GO

PoMo council has approved a program to make city bus stops wheelchair accessible. In 2009, the community care committee’s Measuring Up study found too few bus stops are accessible, keeping people who use wheelchairs or scooters from using public transit. Currently, just 70 of PoMo’s 163 bus stops (43%) are accessible. That puts it ahead of Port Coquitlam, where 37% of 230 stops are accessible, but behind Coquitlam, where slightly more than 46% of 546 stops are accessible. Port Moody will upgrade all of its bus stops over the next five years to be wheelchair

IOCO ROAD DELAYS

Drivers using Ioco Road in Port Moody can expect some extra delays due to fire hall construction. The work started Feb. 27 and the city is asking motorists to give themselves extra time to reach their destination, and to co-operate with construction staff. The delays are due to preliminary work for the new fire hall at the corner of Newport Drive and Ioco Road. A city water main as well as utilities from Telus, BC Hydro and FortisBC need to be relocated before construction can begin. The work will run until June 1 and will also affect Newport Drive and Knowle Street.

accessible. The cost is estimated at $125,000 and could be reduced by half through a costsharing program with TransLink.

DAYCARE CHANGE?

Rick Glumac wants to see more commercial daycares in Port Moody. At Tuesday’s council meeting, the rookie councillor suggested council pass a zoning bylaw amendment to make it easier for people to open daycares for 10 or more children. With a population that has grown by nearly 20% in the last five years, Glumac said the city should strive to accommodate the increasing numbers of young families making Port Moody home. The current bylaw allows for commercial daycares only on lots that are zoned P2 (special institutional), of which there are very few in Port Moody. In contrast, neighbouring municipalities allow commercial daycares in

a wide variety of zoning categories. Glumac suggested allowing daycares in C3 (community commercial) zones, the most common commercial zoning in PoMo. Many of them are in Moody Centre, an area that expects to see further growth with the arrival of the Evergreen Line. “It is also along a commuting route for many Port Moody residents, which allows for easy drop-off and pickup,” Glumac’s report states. Council approved a recommendation to have staff report back on the implications of the necessary bylaw amendments.

OCP & TOD

Port Moody will make way for the Evergreen Line in its official community plan. At its meeting Tuesday, council voted to proceed with plans to update the OCP — which was approved in January 2011 after five

years of community consultation with a policy of allowing zero to minimal residential growth — with its eye on transit-oriented development (TOD) along the Evergreen corridor. Those developments would happen within a five- to 10-minute walk around the two planned stations at the West Coast Express station and at St. Johns Street and Ioco Road, with a possible station at Queens Street. That radius encompasses all of Moody Centre, as well as parts of Seaview, Coronation Park and Inlet Centre. “These are the areas where redevelopment pressure is expected to be greatest and where TOD principles could be best applied,” a city staff report states. Updating the OCP for these areas is expected to take a year, with the first public input session planned for April, followed by a design workshop in May. A draft OCP would be ready for a second round of input in October, with a final document ready for council approval in April 2013. There is nearly $84,000 in the OCP update account, which should cover part of the costs. Staf f has requested another $100,000 in the 2012 budget for additional OCP costs such as hiring consultants to develop more detailed station area concept plans, land use impact studies and streetscape designs. spayne@tricitynews.com

RCMP seeks fraud suspects By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The Coquitlam RCMP’s fraud section is seeking three family members on outstanding warrants related to a Tri-City fraud ring that led to the theft of mail from residents across the Lower Mainland. All three men are eastern European and Mounties warn people to stay away from them if they are spotted in public and to phone police. Attila Kolompar, 48, is wanted on four counts of fraud over $5,000, breach of probation, possession of stolen property and failure to appear. He is 5’9” with brown hair and green

eyes and weighs approximately 240 lbs. Gyula Kolompar, 47, is wanted on outstanding warrants for theft from mail and three counts of fraud over $5,000. He is 5’3” with grey hair, brown eyes and weighs 174 lbs.

A third man, Gyula Kolompar, who also goes by the name Johnny, is 23 years old, 5’7” and weighs 172 lbs. He has brown hair and brown eyes. Anyone with information as to these men’s whereabouts is asked

to call the Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550. Those who wish to provide information anonymously can do so by call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or by going online at www. solvecrime.ca. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Letter scam hits Coq. A letter promising recipients $8.75 million if they provide personal information has been circulating in the Tri-Cities and is a scam, according to Coquitlam RCMP. Cpl. Jamie Chung said dozens of area residents have received the letter, which is personally addressed and refers to the estate of an individual who shares the recipient’s last name. The person receiving the letter is told that if they email their personal information to a man named Porter Lee, a private investment manager, they will be able to access their millions. Concerned residents have brought the letters to the RCMP detachment, Chung added. “A few years ago, we probably would have heard about the Mr. Lee when someone called to report that they had already lost their life savings,” he said. “It’s great that people are getting savvier about frauds and scams and reporting these kinds of suspicious incidents to police.” Chung said that mailand email-based frauds are extremely difficult to investigate and prosecute so prevention is important. Residents are urged to educate themselves about the types of scams that are common and use common sense when dealing with strangers promising money or other benefits that seem to good to be true. “I have responded to email address on the letter just to see where it goes,” Chung said. “I’ll post updates on our website, so stay tuned to find out what happens between me and Porter Lee.”

An artist’s rendering shows what the new Centennial secondary will look like once construction is complete. Work is expected to begin this fall and could take up to 20 months to complete.

Centennial replacement to start as early as this fall By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Construction of the replacement for one of Coquitlam’s oldest schools may start as early as this fall, the project manager told the city’s council-in-committee this week. On Monday, Alfredo Verdicchio said the $42-million construction work at Centennial secondary will begin either next fall or winter, with the new school going up first to the west of the old school and construction expected to take 20 months. In a presentation, Verdicchio highlighted some of the features in the new school, such as a super-lab, a 250-seat theatre, an amphitheatre and a library that assis-

LEARNING CENTRES

After the replacement school is up, construction will star t for the new Neighbourhood Learning Centre (NLC). SD43’s Alfredo Verdicchio said the NLC will include a welcoming facility for refugees as Coquitlam has been one of the top destinations in the province, especially for Bhutanese. As well, the NLC will be used by agencies such as Simon Fraser University, BCIT, Fraser Health and the Ministry of Children and Family Development. NLC hubs are also being planned for Pitt River middle school (designed to house First Nations and athletic facilities) and James Park elementary (health and family resources).

tant superintendent Dan Derpak said “will be at the heart of the school.” A new sports field will also be added at the corner of Winslow Avenue and Poirier Street. At this point, the the-

atre will only be used for school purposes but Verdicchio later told The Tri-City News it could be opened in the future for the community and have a similar model to Terry Fox secondary’s

theatre, which is run by a non-profit society. Once Centennial’s 1,250 students move into the replacement building — which is being constructed for a similar-sized population, Derpak said — the existing school will be torn down except for the gymnasium, which will be upgraded later to

meet seismic standards. Overall, the new Centennial campus will be built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold standards, although Verdicchio said that it won’t connect to the nearby district energy system, a heating/ cooling network being used at Poirier Sports

and Leisure Complex and Chimo Pool. “We looked at that possibility but with the cost and the distance, it just won’t work within our budget,” he told The News. As well, he told the committee, there are no plans for green roofs on the new building but the trees on the west side,

facing neighbours’ properties, will remain. The school board offices won’t be replaced as part of the project, which is due to wrap up by the spring of 2015. Centennial secondary was built in 1967, the centennial ye a r o f C a n a d i a n Confederation. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Tri-City homelessness bucks regional trends By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The number of people living on the streets in the Tri-Cities has dropped dramatically in the last three years during a period when the rest of the Lower Mainland’s homeless statistics have flatlined.

Picktons launch Ghana charity By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Dave Pickton, the brother of convicted serial killer Robert Pickton, has launched a foundation to help battle poverty in Ghana. The Pickton Foundation is collecting donations at its website and said it intends to help provide clean drinking water for the rural poor and to assist in agricultural production. A search of the

Canada Revenue Agency’s re gistered charities listings showed no record of the foundation. Funds raised by the foundation, according to the website, will also go toward paying for medicine for Ghanians who have become ill as a result of drinking unclean water. “We understand that some of the good people of this world aren’t aware of how grave living conditions in the developing world is, es-

pecially in the remote villages in Africa,” said the website. “We feel it is our call to alert the good people of the world of how hard it is for some people to even get a single meal in a day.” Pickton is listed as a partner in the organization, which is based out of Port Coquitlam. On the foundation’s website, it states that Pickton first visited Ghana on a business trip and he realized he wanted to assist the

poverty-stricken region. He did not respond to requests for an interview. Robert Pickton was convicted of six murders at his trial in 2007. The Crown did not proceed with 20 additional murder counts after Pickton lost his appeals. At trial, the court heard the former Port Coquitlam resident tell an undercover police officer in 2002 that he had killed 49 woman. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

report said has been ef fective in g etting people into permanent housing situations. “We find someone out in the bush and very often the barrier is they are dealing with an addiction,” he said. “We have a solution for them.” Across the Lower Mainland, the number of people sleeping on the streets or in public parks has remained

virtually unchanged, according to the 2011 count. In 2008, Metro Vancouver total homeless population was 2,660, compared to the 2,650 counted in 2011, a 0.4% drop. The count started in 2002 and is conducted every three years in order to assist policy makers and community agencies assess their needs and better

understand the homeless population in Metro Vancouver. A c c o rd i n g t o t h e count’s accompanying report, in almost all cases, homelessness resulted in part from a lack of affordable housing, income security or support services. Periods of family or life transition were also a factor, the report said. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Tri-City students introduce SD43 school board to TED By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Two Dr. Charles Best secondary school students are putting their passion and ideas onto videos and sharing them with the world through TEDxKids@BC. Modelled after the famous TED Talks (www. ted.com/talks), which brought technolog y, entertainment and design ideas to the masses through talks, videos and conferences, the TEDxKids program is geared to young people. The two girls discussed their plans during a presentation at a board of education meeting on Feb. 21. On a recent trip to Antarctica with Students on Ice, Selin Jessa asked students to contribute

WHO IS TED, ANYWAY?

From the TED website (www.ted.com): TED is a nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences -- the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Edinburgh UK each summer -- TED includes the awardwinning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and TED Conversations, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize. their ideas about how the trip changed them and will use their posts for a video for TEDxKids@BC. She said it’s important for youth to be able to reach out to the global community with their ideas, and TEDxKids is a perfect vehicle for such exchanges. “That’s something I’ve become very passionate about,” she said.

During the trip, which took place over the winter break, Jessa saw how animals endure in an extreme environment, worked with scientists and artists, and played a game of soccer on an ice flow. Her friend Zoya Jiwa is also using the power of video to get her message across. She’s listed as a speaker on the

TEDxKids@BC site and gave a short clip of her talk to trustees about how lupus changed her life. At first, Zoya said, she was dismayed when drugs to control the disease changed her looks but she overcame feelings of low-self esteem with the help of friends and family. She discovered that surrounding herself with positive people made her feel better and so she decided to create a support group for girls called Simply You. The group meets weekly to talk about ways to have a healthy outlook on life that doesn’t revolve around appearance. “It’s an opportunity for them to talk about their inner beauty,” Zoya said. • To see Jiwa’s video, visit www.tedxkidsbc. com.

Healthy food too costly for poor: report Families forced to scrimp on nutrition By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

A family on welfare would have to spend as much as 47% of their household income to put healthy food on the table, according to a new report on the cost of nutritious food. The B.C. chapter of the Dieticians of Canada pegs the cost of providing a family of four with a nationally defined basket of nutritious food – basic staples and produce but no pre-packaged meals – at an average of $868 per month in B.C. That monthly cost rises to $944 in the Va n c o u ve r C o a s t a l health region, while it’s slightly lower at $851 in the Fraser Health region, according to the report Cost of Eating in British Columbia 2011. It would eat up 15% of the $67,200 median income for a typical B.C. family of four and a much higher proportion for those in or near poverty. Single people on in-

The Dieticians of Canada pegs the cost of providing a family of four with a basket of nutritious food at an average of $868 per month in B.C. come assistance and even a family of four on a lower earned income would pay at least a third of their income, the report found. That doesn’t leave enough to pay the typi-

cal cost of housing, it found, estimating many welfare families would face a $100 to $300 gap each month if they tried to buy what’s nutritious. “People end up using food banks and a lot of

free food services,” said Kristen Yarker, executive director of the B.C. dieticians group. “They end up spending a lot of their time accessing those and lining up, which isn’t a great solution.”

Others go without, she said, or opt for cheaper, less healthy food options. The report found the nutritious food basket price hasn’t changed since 2009, but is up

nearly 40% since 2001, when it stood at $626. Meanwhile, Yarker noted, housing, gasoline, utilities and other competing costs have steadily climbed, leaving less in household budgets to de-

vote to good food. “The problem is getting worse,” she said. “Income assistance and disability assistance rates have not kept up.” Poor nutrition can spell trouble for children in school, harm pregnancies for expectant mothers and hurt productivity of adult workers. Over the long term, the report said, poor food increases rates of diabetes and heart disease, ultimately shortening lives and costing the health care system more money. Dieticians, nutritionists and volunteers surveyed prices in grocery stores across B.C. to calculate the food basket cost in each region. B.C.’s minimum wage rises to $10.25 an hour in May. But the dieticians group is calling for a series of further reforms to help the poor. It wants B.C. to raise welfare rates, add more af fordable housing, enact a living wage policy, pursue a poverty reduction strategy and develop sustainable food systems that can eventually replace food banks. jnagel@blackpress.ca

TRI-CITY SPOTLIGHT: Pink shirt winners, coffee time with the mayor, and hospital cake CAKE TIME

PINK SHIRTS

Eagle Ridge Hospital Auxiliary marked its 36th year last month by serving cake and hot beverages to staff and visitors in the main entrance way at the Port Moody facility. Since it started in 1976, auxiliary members have given about 250,000 volunteer hours plus $800,000 for equipment and patient comfort items.

A number of students from Port Coquitlam’s Blakeburn elementary were recognized recently for their artistic work in helping to create a t-shirt for the school’s anti-bullying campaign. The student-driven project, which received more than 100 ideas for the design, was led by teachers and principal Jane Kruks. Three of this year’s winners follow in the footsteps of their older siblings — Kalen Dofher, Roy Marshall and Ariana Dudley — who headed up the same effort a few years ago.

Students of Coquitlam’s Queen of All Saints school had a boost to their coffee drive last month when Mayor Richard Stewart and Coun. Terry O’Neill showed up. The “farewell” fundraiser was hosted by the Grade 7 class, with the java donated by Port Moody’s Gallagher’s Coffee Bar.

PIANO GIRL

A young Coquitlam piano player clinched a near perfect mark in her Royal Conservatory of Music exam. Angela Hu, seven, gained 99% for Grade 2 and took a gold medal, which she will receive in April at the Chan Centre at UBC. Hu, a member of the Donna Fishwick Piano Ensemble, started piano with Keitha Campeau and has won many awards. Five of Fishwick’s other students also earned gold medals in their RCM exams last year.

HAPPY 45

A Coquitlam printing firm is now rolling out with its 45th anniversary celebrations. Started in 1967, Ampco Manufacturers began as Ad-Print Marking Ltd. and has since expanded to 100 em-

ployees, producing more than $15 million a year out of its 63,000-square foot facility. Ampco (www.ampcomfg.com) was recently named a regional finalist in Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies national competition.

CLIMBER

18th annual free seminar for first-time home buyers With so many factors to take into consideration when buying a new home, it is no surprise first-time home buyers need a little help de-mystifying the process. What home type is best matched to wants, needs and financial resources? What are the mortgage options? How does the provincial property transfer tax exemption for first-time home buyers work? What are the rules associated with B.C.’s newly announced $10,000 first-time new home buyers bonus? How much can be withdrawn tax-free from RRSPs? How about closing costs and home warranties? What’s involved with condo pre-sales? Those and other key

questions will be covered by a panel of experts at the 18th annual Seminar for First-time Home Buyers, presented by the Greater Va n c o u v e r H o m e Builders’ Association (GVHBA) on Tuesday, April 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Bell Performing Arts Centre, 6250 144 St., Surrey.

Navajo prints and accessories are in. I wouldn’t ordinarily know this but, thanks to Coquitlam Centre and the Pandora Style Lounge I, too, can become a style expert. All I need to do is take a few moments from my shopping to sit down on the white leather couches in the style lounge in the mall’s H & M wing and relax in front of the flat screen TV which is showing a video of the latest fashion trends. I can also thumb through fashion magazines while taking a breather in the lounge sponsored by Pandora. The lounge is the brainchild of mall marketing manager Deborah Stetz, who said she wanted to do something to make the mall stand out from its competitors.

“She is very knowledgeable about style trends and fits our demographic,” Stetz said of Dunwoody. see CREATING, page A32

Creating a buzz for investing is the goal continued from page A29

Human Alghabi, senior regional manage for TD Waterhouse in Western Canada, said people are hungry for information especially when markets are volatile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a misconception that you have to do this by yourself. This is a place for like-minded investors to share ideas,â&#x20AC;? Alghabi said. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping that the opening of the new Investor Centre will create a buzz while also demystifying the market for people. The open concept plan of the newly-renovated TD Bank is supposed to

make people feel more at home and more comfortable talking about their finances, and so far that seems to be happening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really the comfort factor of what a lot of investors are looking for,â&#x20AC;? he said. Being informed is also critical for investors and the TD Waterhouse seminars have been well attended since they were introduced a few weeks ago. The seminars are free and cover topics ranging from how to use TDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s WebBroker, to information about types of investment, including the popular Exchange Traded Funds, called ETFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

Hansen and Alghabi s ay e d u c a t i o n h a s always been a key commitment for TD Waterhouse and the Investors Centre is one of many initiatives in recent years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a huge tool for investors,â&#x20AC;? Hansen said. An upcoming presentation on ETFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is planned for March 8 a t 6 p. m . e m a i l td.waterhouse.@ td.com for more information. The center is wheelchair accessible and open from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information please visit www. tdwaterhouse.ca or call 604-927-5761.

Three years to some asparagus action IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter

A

sparagus is one of our oldest perennial vegetables. The generic word is derived from the Greek ‘asparagos’ meaning ‘to tear’, which relates to the prickly nature of some stalks. Asparagus, as one of today’s highly prized gourmet vegetables, is relatively expensive because it takes at least three years from seed until it comes into production; it requires considerable commercial growing area; and it has a limited production season. If you really enjoy this unique vegetable, why not grow your own? Asparagus is hardy from Zones 1-4, meaning it will tolerate temperatures as cold as -40 C. To keep the cost down, commercial growers usually start asparagus from seed but most home gardeners start it from two year old roots. However, by planting four year old roots (you can find these jumbo sized plants in some nurseries), you will save at least one year in harvesting time. Once planted, asparagus roots are productive for at least fifteen years. ‘Mary Washington’ has traditionally been the favourite variety but newer hybrid all-male varieties like ‘Jersey Knight’ produce larger crops of big, attractive green spears with purple bracts and tight purple tips. To grow asparagus you need a really sunny location with well-drained, slightly alkaline soil. It is very important to make certain the asparagus roots go straight down and because of this, the traditional method of planting involves trenches. Furrows or trenches should be dug about 12 inches wide and 12 to 18 inches deep, depending upon the length of the roots. Rows should be 4 feet apart. The bottom of the trench should be filled with 2 to 3 inches of composted cow, poultry or mushroom manure. Create a mound of soil in the centre of the trench, leaving the crest about 4 inches below the level of the garden soil. At this point, the asparagus roots can be planted. To speed up the rooting process, I always dip them in a mixture of warm water, root starter fertilizer and mud. This muddy concoction sticks to the roots and immediately begins to stimulate root development. Lay the roots on top of the mound of soil in the trench, spreading the roots evenly on both sides of this small berm. Place the plants about 18 inches apart and backfill the trench, leaving the crowns or tips of the asparagus just barely covered with soil. Root growth will begin almost immediately. Weeds can be a problem in new asparagus beds because well established roots will intermingle with the asparagus roots. Keep your asparagus beds weed free by hand cultivation

105 - 1196 Pipeline Road, Coquitlam

10-3200 Westwood Street, Port Coquitlam but remember: practice shallow cultivation for fear of injuring the roots. During the summer, asparagus needs deep watering to keep the roots active and growing. Soaker hoses are the best means of watering these beds. During dry spells, water thoroughly at least once a week. As the asparagus plumes begin to develop, feed the plants with a high nitrogen fertilizer. I prefer to use a slow release food, like 14-14-14, for more long lasting results. It is important to keep the tops growing to develop both food and strength in the roots. If you are an organic buff, parsley planted with asparagus gives added vigour to both. Tomatoes planted near asparagus will keep away the asparagus beetle because of a substance in the tomato plant called solanine. The second year after planting, you can begin harvesting a few spears for a period of four to six weeks. When the spears are six to eight inches high, cut them at a 45 degree angle about 1½ inches below the soil line but be careful for fear of damaging the crowns. At the start of the harvesting season, you will probably harvest every three days but as the soil becomes warmer, a daily harvesting can take place. If any spears get away on you, let them develop into foliage. Once the spears become very thin, it’s a sign the roots are near exhaustion and it is time to stop cutting. Let the plumes grow all summer. In colder parts of British Columbia, leave them standing to trap snow for better winter protection. In the Lower Mainland, the plumes should be cut off in September when the seeds turn red and the roots covered with 4 inches of coarse manure. It may seem like a fair amount of work the first year but once established, with a little care, you will enjoy your own fresh asparagus for the next fifteen years.

Access to transportation key when choosing a new home

Transit â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a really vital linkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in our lives How much is convenient transportation worth? It might be a cop-out to say â&#x20AC;&#x153;it depends,â&#x20AC;? but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it is. Sometimes it can add to the cost of a home, but in other cases it can actually save you some cash. Take Forge Propertiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Keystone townhome development in South Surrey. Forge spokesman Cory Saran says lots of buyers are coming in from Vancouver and Richmond because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close enough to Highway 99 that residents can hop on the freeway and get going within minutes. And with homes starting at $445,000, he says commuters can save a bundle compared to living in a similar, 1,800 square-foot townhome downtown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To buy a townhome with this squarefootage in Vancouver is a million-plus,â&#x20AC;? he

says. Saran says the proximity to the 99 is huge for Keystone buyers. From the development, you can get to Langley in 20 minutes and downtown Vancouver in about 30 if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky, he says. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same for developments near public transit. WestStone Propertiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 40-storey condo tower Ultra â&#x20AC;&#x201C; part of the Urban Village project in Surreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s City Centre â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is a three-minute walk to the SkyTrain. Bob Dominick, vicepresident of sales and marketing at WestStone, says this proximity to transit has been a huge draw for SFU students in particular, but also commuters who get to work without a car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of our residents look at it as access to entertainment,â&#x20AC;? Dominick says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really vital link in our lives.â&#x20AC;?

Going for the gold

Celebrating the best of B.C. at the Georgies by Kerry Vital

In the grand tradition of awards season, the Canadian Home Buildersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association of British Columbia joined in the fun with their annual Georgie Awards, held on Feb. 25 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. This year was the 20th anniversary of the awards, which recognize excellence in residential home construction, renovation, design, development, and sales and marketing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From Whistler to the Lower Mainland to the Okanagan, the winners of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Georgies are golden examples of what excellent residential construction is all about,â&#x20AC;? says CHBA BC President Doug Wittal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The winners â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and indeed all the finalists

â&#x20AC;&#x153;

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have shown us that B.C. is truly at the forefront of the country when it comes to innovative design, quality construction and great customer service.â&#x20AC;? Several familiar names in the industry were among the winners, including Adera Development Corporation for Best Innovative Feature and Best Townhouse Development for seven35 and Larco Investments Ltd. for Best Multi-Family Low Rise Development for their Morgan Crossing community. There were two big winners at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awards. MAC Marketing Solutions was the recipient of six awards, including Marketing Campaign of the Year, Best Sales Centre and Best Project-Specific Website. They also

received a Special Platinum Award for winning 27 Georgies over the past seven years. Portrait Homes also won a Special Platinum Award for winning 27 Georgies in the past 11 years. This year the team won three other awards, for Large Volume Single Family Home Builder of the Year, Customer Choice Award â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Single Family Home Builder

and Customer Choice Award â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Multi Family Home Builder. This is the fourth year theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won the single family home award in the customer choice category, something that the company is very proud of as the winner of the award is selected by homeowners. To see a full list of winners and nominees, check out www. georgieawards.ca

The winners ... are golden examples of what excellent residential construction is about,â&#x20AC;? says CHBA BC President Doug Wittal.

hat is dynamic stretching? It’s a type of stretching where you are moving your body actively and rhythmically through a range of motion. This is in contrast to static stretching, where you are holding a specific muscle in a stretched position, usually to a point of tension, for a certain length of time. In the past, static stretching is what everyone did to “warmup” before exercising. Over the past few years, dynamic stretching has become the norm for most athletes. Why? Research has shown that people who perform dynamic stretching prior to their sport or activity demonstrated more power. In other words, they went faster, jumped higher or were stronger. And believe it or not, research has shown that static stretch-

ing seems to have a negative effect on these power performance measures. Let’s look at some of the possible reasons why. The purpose of a warm-up prior to activity is to help prepare the body to move. Static stretching does not quite do this. In fact, it only increases the length of the muscle you are stretching. When we begin an activity, our muscles need a sudden increase of oxygen. Dynamic stretching helps make this happen. The constant motion of your body increases blood flow to your muscles, causes your core body temperature to rise and your muscle length to increase. Essentially, with dynamic stretching, you are better preparing your muscles and joints for activity. This is because dynamic stretching usually involves having your body perform the mo-

tions you will likely repeat in your activity. It is why many trainers believe dynamic stretching may decrease the risk of injuries, which is one of the main reasons we all tend to stretch and warm up before any activity. Dynamic stretching is not hard to incorporate into your exercise routine. In fact, it usually flows nicely into your desired activity. Since we are in the midst of winter, let’s look at a simple warm-up program for someone who is going cross-country skiing: • Front to back kicks: While standing on one leg, swing the other leg forward and then backward like a pendulum. Repeat on the other side. This stretches your hamstrings, hip flexors and some of your quadriceps muscles. • Side kicks: While standing on one leg, swing the other leg one at a time side to side

like a pendulum. This stretches your abductors (IT Band) and groin muscles. • Heel and toe walk: Walk on your heels and then walk on your tippy toes. This stretches your shin muscles and your calf muscles. • Walking lunges: Take a step forward with one leg and then squat. Alternate sides. This stretches all your major leg and buttock muscles • Arm swings: Swing your arms back and forth like you would in cross country skiing. This stretches your shoulder and chest muscles. • Light jog: Lightly jog in a spot. This warms up all the muscles in your body, including your heart. • Scissoring jumping jacks: Perform split jumps as you swing your arms back and forth as in crosscountry skiing. This exercise mimics skiing. Do each stretch for

about 30 seconds to one minute each and repeat one to two times. You are now ready to go cross-country skiing. In conclusion, dynamic stretching may help some performance measures that involve power, speed and strength as well as decreasing one’s chance of injury. This does not mean there is no place for static stretching or that no one does it anymore — it still has its place. I often tell my patients to perform their static stretches after their activity as part of their cool down. Both dynamic and static stretching are important components of an exercise program or activity. Research tells us that it’s the timing of when you choose to do it that is the key to getting the most of each type of stretch. – article by Karen Chow-Lennstrom of MaxFit Movement Institute (www.maxfitmovement.com).

Harding races to Rice U.

Gleneagle sprinter commits to Owls By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

H

odson Harding is set to soar with the Rice University Owls. The spectacular sprinter currently in Grade 12 at Gleneagle secondary school signed a letter of intent earlier this week to join the Owls of Houston, Texas and the heralded NCAA Div. 1 ranks next fall on a track and field scholarship. In the process, Harding turned down other fullride offers he was pondering from other big-name American post-secondary institutions such as the University of Texas at Austin, Kansas State, Penn, North Carolina and the University of Texas at Arlington. Rice was one of four campuses Harding visited on recent fly-downs and he was quickly convinced that it was the right fit for him. “The campus is amazing... very beautiful,” said the 17-year-old Harding, a native of London, England who moved to Coquitlam in February of 2009 and only took up track the following spring. “My parents tagged along so I got a good feel for everything. It was probably the hardest decision of my life, [one that] determines the rest of your life. I took every aspect under consideration and for track and academics, [Rice] was the best balance for me.” see AYESU-ATTAH, page A54

On Wednesday evening, Juventus defeated the PoCo Rangers on penalty kicks after the game had ended in an overtime tie. John Favaro and Logan Chung led the way to victory with their amazing leadership and grit. On Saturday, against Port Moody, John and Logan once again stood out as their timely goals led Juventus to a clear-cut 5-2 victory.

Ayesu-Attah wins for Idaho continued from page A53

Harding set a personal-best time of 47.53 seconds in his main event, the 400 metres, at last June’s B.C. high school championships at Burnaby’s Swangard Stadium, where he finished second to Oak Bay’s Brendon Restall. Placing third in that same race was Harding’s Coquitlam Cheetahs clubmate and Heritage Woods grad Ben AyesuAttah, who, ironically, ran the anchor leg as a freshman with the University of Idaho in last weekend’s deciding men’s 4x400 relay race that won the Vandals their first-ever Western Athletic Conference (WAC) indoor track and field title. Last August, Harding set a new Wester n Canada Summer Games record of 47.64 in the men’s 400 in Kamloops. “We are very excited that Hodson is coming to Rice next fall,” Owls head track and field coach Jon Warren wrote

SPENCER FARRIN/UNIVERSITY OF IDAHO

Heritage Woods grad Ben Ayesu-Attah competes for Idaho in last weekend’s WAC indoor track meet. in an email to The TriCity News. “He is a great student and a great athlete who is the perfect fit for this university. I cannot say enough good things about him and his family.” Harding has also proven to be a formi-

dable for other sprinters his age in the 100m and 200m events, having placed third in the latter at last year’s prep provincials. “He is an excellent 400-metre runner who help us in many respects –– both in the

open events and in the relays,” Warren said. “I think his ability as a runner can take him far beyond the NCAA. “It’s not an understatement [to say] that the Olympic Games could be in his future.” Harding plans to take sociology at Rice with a goal of eventually going to law school. He said attending Gleneagle has been “a terrific experience” and that teachers and students alike there have been swamping him with congratulatory gestures since he committed to the Owls. “Everybody has been great,” said Harding, who has targeted achieving a 46.8 clocking in the 400m with the Owls next season. “I’m always trying to better my time and excel.” FINISH LINE: At last weekend’s WAC indoors, Ayesu-Attah posted a personal-best 48.12 time in the men’s 400m to place fourth and help earn him second team All-Conference honours.

Rod costs go crazy TIGHT LINES Jeff Weltz 230% increase over last 17 years

COLLEEN FLANAGAN/BLACK PRESS

Erik Reppel of the Port Moody Blues tries to block a South Delta player’s shot during a Fraser Valley AAA senior boys high school playoff game Monday in Pitt Meadows.

CM Rings zing Surrey-WR Michelle Beattaur zipped in three goals to lead the CoquitlamMoody Lightning Rings Under-10 ringette squad to a 9-7 victory over Sur rey-White Rock, marking just the Rings’

second win of the season. Kira Cooper was next on the gritty Lightning Rings with two goals and one assist, followed by Claire Borden with a goal and two helpers.

Recently I met a fellow, Todd, who is beginning his journey as a sport fishing writer. In discussing the craft with him, he expressed that there seemed a plethora of fly fishing literature on the market, with a marked shortage of material on other methods. Later, as I thought about what he had said, it occurred to me that we of the fly fishing community have done a great job of selling the joys of fly fishing. In fact we have done such a great job that our own efforts have come full

circle to bite us in our own behinds. Case in point: Can anyone tell me what honestly justifies a 230% increase in the price of performance rods over the last 17 years? We are not talking greater Vancouver real estate here, and even those price increases are not honestly justified. As an old school fly fisherman, introduced to the way of yarn and feathers 43 years ago, I have decided over the next few columns to lift the vale on some of the pompousness I have found skulking in my chosen sport. Let me start by stating I do not hold with much of the present elitist conventions of fly fishing. In short I hold with t h e a d a g e s, “ W h at works, works period,”

and “Fishing is about catching fish, not about how much you spent on your equipment,” and “Anyone can talk a good game, at the end of the day the fish are the true judge.”

THE REPORT

Fishing on our Lower Mainland lakes has slowed due to the return of winter. Expect things to improve when war mer weather returns. Try fishing close to shore along the north to north east sections of your favorite lake. The Fraser River back waters are fishing to good for cutthroat. The Stave River is good for steelhead and cutthroat. The Harrison River is good for cutthroat. The Chehalis River is good for steelhead and cutthroat.
