Spring forward and play it safe this weekend Port Coquitlam Fire and Eme Emergency Services is reminding people to check their smoke alarms when they set their clocks forward this weekend. week Taking a few minutes every six months to maintain a smoke alarm can save lives and firefighters enco encourage homeowners to change the batteries, test and clean their devices every time the clocks change. B Beyond the twice-yearly check-ups, firefighters recommend people follow the manufacturer’s instructions instru for maintenance and even check smoke alarms each week by pushing the test button. Batteries Batte should be chanced twice a year and the devices can be cleaned by gently vacuuming the inside ins using the soft-brush attachment to remove dust from the sensors. Alarms should be replaced repla every 10 years and installed outside each sleeping area on every level of the home. Besides B checking smoke alarms this weekend, the Insurance Bureau of Canada is also urging u Canadians to prepare for an emergency as they spring forward. IBC suggests you prepare or restock emergency supplies kits — for use during a disaster such as a major earthquake — in your home and vehicle. • For more information about smoke alarms, visit www.portcoquitlam.ca/fire or contact the Port Coquitlam fire department at fire@portcoquitlam.ca or 604-927-5466. Without a smoke alarm, you’re 74% more likely to die in a fire, according to a study of almost 50,000 fires in B.C., Alberta and Ontario between 2006 and 2011. The study also found, however, that a quarter of all smoke alarms found at fire locations do not function properly.

Search called off for missing PM woman A Port Moody woman has gone missing while on a cruise off the coast of Florida. Fariba Amani, 47, was reported missing from the Bahamas Celebration ship on Feb. 29 after the ship returned from a two-night trip between Grand Bahama Island and the Port of Palm Beach, Florida, according to media reports. Her boyfriend, 46-year-old Ramiz Golshani, has told reporters he last saw Amani at 1 a.m. at the gift shop before he headed to the casino. When he woke up later that day, she still hadn’t returned. He reported Amani missing when the ship docked. Crew members searched the ship but did not find her. The U.S. Coast Guard called off its intensive air and sea search after two days.

School District 43 teachers and students are wrapping up a week of job action, rallies and study sessions — followed by two days of classes — and looking forward to a two-week spring break. The week was marked by orderly protests outside TriCity public schools and a student sit-in at the district

board office to raise awareness of youth concerns. As well, fewer students made it to classrooms as the week progressed and job action to protest Bill 22 closed schools. Only four elementary and three middle school students showed up to schools on Tuesday, and five elementary school students on Wednesday, according to School District 43. More high school students have been showing up, about 20 on Tuesday and 58 on Wednesday, but it was mostly Terry Fox students who wanted to take part in sports.

On Monday, 56 students showed up at schools, about half of them high school students. One of the reasons for the drop in numbers of elementary students attending schools could be the district’s decision Monday to allow onsite private daycares to extend their hours to include the period from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the strike. Also this week, a group of drama students met at the district board office on Tuesday to raise awareness about the effect of job action on a Terry Fox musical. see PEACEFUL PEACEFUL,, page A19

DOuglas l College rolls out message Douglas College has taken a page out of Nike’s book with its exhortation “DO” to inspire students to take action to explore careers and post-secondary education options. While acknowledging that “DO” recalls the international sportswear company’s “Just Do It” slogan, marketing manager Sean Kelly said the college’s new brand is not a copy but similar in intent. “It’s a little bit aspirational and inspirational,” Kelly said. On Thursday, the college was to roll out the “DO” slogan — which has been seen in advertising for several

months — as part of a yearlong rebranding project. Kelly said “DO” is the short form of the message the college is trying to get out to students to “do what you love and be good at it.” The college spent a year canvassing ideas and opinions from students, Kelly said, and lear ned they wanted their learning environment to be smart, creative and engaging. The college was expected to hand out prizes on Thursday and encourage students to write inspirational messages on a three-dimensional model of the word “DO.” dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Employers come out in force at college career fair in Coquitlam Health professionals sought but some other students still looking for work By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Douglas College career fair held Wednesday to match jobs to job seekers was well attended — and it wasn’t only students who showed up at David Lam Campus. Among the college-age students and grads at the Coquitlam campus were older professionals from Iran and Russia looking to break into the job market, said alumni relations coordinator Andrew Senjack, who said the fair drew a large contingent of new immigrants as well as young people and even Grade 12 students. The mix of job seekers shows how competitive the job market is, he said, but the good news is there were a lot of companies, non-profits and public agencies seeking employees. “I noticed a lot of companies really active in coming to the career fair this time,” said Senjack, who said the previous two years’ turnout was less stellar due to a sluggish economy. At a

career fair held at the New Westminster campus on Monday, for example, there was a waiting list of businesses that wanted to attend. Employers ranged from landscaping firms looking for summer placements to health care agencies looking for professionals such as therapeutic recreation workers and nurses graduating from the college’s health sciences programs. A number of financial services and accounting associations, such as the Certified General Accountants Association, also attended the career fair looking to scoop up business students. But for one marketing student, the job market is looking increasingly bleak. Pouria Mafi of Coquitlam said he has been looking for a sales and marketing job or internship for the last two months and hasn’t received a bite despite sending out dozens of resumes and portfolios. “There are just so many students looking for internships,” he said. Mafi’s dream job is to represent a large manufacturing company overseas but for now has settled for a job at Tim Hortons in Coquitlam. In the meantime, though, he hasn’t lost hope. “It doesn’t have to be paid,” he said, “I just want the experience.”

More than two dozen businesses, non-profits and public sector agencies turned out to a career fair Wednesday at Douglas College’s David Lam Campus in Coquitlam. For two other Douglas College students, jobs are out there but you have to work hard to get them. Marina Wu, who is studying kinesiology, has worked for the city of Port Moody for two years as a recreational leader and said she got the job because she had good connections and experi-

ence working as a Coquitlam Sharks diving coach. “It definitely helps who you know but you have to put yourself out there,” Wu said. Melissa Cantafio is not currently working while she pursues her studies but said the store she was working at has also closed. “I think

it is more competitive,” said Cantafio, who is trying to get a job as a lifeguard — “something that pays more than minimum wage.” The two said students have to work extra hard to get work in their chosen professions but lots of minimum wage jobs are available.

After years of waiting for Evergreen Line construction to begin, drivers are now getting what they wished for — and it could cause them delays. In Port Moody, for example, work is set to begin Monday on the installation of new underground BC Hydro lines to power a tunnelboring machine during construction and the rapid transit system itself when it opens in the summer of 2016. The work involves digging a 1.5 m trench, installation of BC H yd ro d u c t b a n k s and road resurfacing. Construction activity will begin along Douglas Street and proceed along Spring Street to Electronic Avenue. It will then continue along St. Johns Street, past Moray Street. Construction will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. but road closures are not expected. Drivers could, however, experience minor delays and single-lane alternating traffic at times. A bulletin issued by the project office this week notes that every effort will be taken to minimize disruption and maintain access for cars. Anyone with questions is encouraged to call the Evergreen Line project office at 604-9274452. Traffic information is available at 604927-2080 and a traffic bulletin will be issued every Friday at www. evergreenline.gov.gc.ca. People can also receive traffic alerts via email. To subscribe, contact info@evergreenline.gov.bc.ca.

PM manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opium Watermain Flushing charges stayed Newport Village, Noons Creek and Heritage Mountain Boulevard By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Charges have been stayed against a Port Moody man who allegedly imported a large amount of opium in the fall of 2009. Earlier this week, the issued a stay of proceedings, which is used when there is either insufficient evidence to proceed or if the prosecution is no longer deemed to be in the public interest. A spokesperson for the federal prosecution service said the reasons for not pursuing a case are never disclosed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are disappointed by this decision in one of our major cases,â&#x20AC;? said Port Moody Police Department Insp. Andy

Richards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We recognize this decision is a reflection of unfortunate pressures in our court system, which are being experienced throughout the province.â&#x20AC;? I n Au g u s t 2 0 0 9 , PMPD were informed by the Canadian Border Services Agency that a bulk quantity of opium was being shipped in the lining of a suitcase to a PoMo address from Istanbul, Turkey. PMPD investigators, together with other municipal and federal agencies, initiated an extensive investigation. The package was allowed to reach its apparent target and on Sept. 5, 2009, Azad Yousefi was arrested in Burnaby. Officers who testified at his trial in

Sex attacker in fed. prison PoCo man, 22, assaulted women in two attacks By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A 22-year-old Por t Coquitlam man will serve an additional three and a half years in a federal penitentiary for two violent sexual assaults that occurred two years ago. James Alkenbrack, who has been in jail since his arrest in April 2010, earning 20 months in time served, will also have to participate in a treatment program. The programming is imperative, wrote Judge Marion Bennett in her reasons for sentence, because the accused has the potential to re-offend.â&#x20AC;&#x201D; â&#x20AC;&#x153;In my view, that has to be intensive programming and this must occur before he is allowed reintegration into society and that may be self-evident: It is to protect the public,â&#x20AC;? the judge wrote in the reasons for sentence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is so, especially given his risk to re-offend.â&#x20AC;? Bennett also ordered that Alkenbrack provide a DNA sample to authorities and that he be subjected to a 10-year firearms prohibition. The sexual assaults took place in the winter of 2010. The first victim was walking down a street in Port Coquitlam when a man from across the road asked her the time. A few minutes later, she felt him running at her from behind and he grabbed her by the throat, threw her on the ground and tried to put his hand down her pants. The victim fought back, punching him in

the face and screaming before he ran off. As it turned out, the victim recognized her attacker as Alkenbrack because the two had attended the same middle school. A month later a second, more violent attack occurred. Alkenbrack grabbed a woman at about 11:30 p.m. on March. 23, 2010 and dragged her behind a fenced area, where he raped her for close to 30 minutes. Eventually, Alkenbrack let her go and the victim was able to find her phone and call for help. An additional two months was added to Alkenbrackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sentence for a later physical assault on his mother. In her reasons for sentence, the judge noted several mitigating factors. A report provided to the court stated that Alkenbrack came from an abusive home and lost his father at an early age. He was also in and out of foster care for a portion of his young life and has shown remorse for the attacks. But given the level of violence Alkenbrack displayed and his potential to re-offend, the judge said a federal sentence â&#x20AC;&#x201D; i.e., longer than two years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was required. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The intensive programming of course is available in both systems but my reading of the information before me is that a more intensive program is available in the federal system,â&#x20AC;? Bennett stated. She later added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to state for the record it is with the greatest reluctance that I consider the federal system for any young first-time offender.â&#x20AC;? gmckenna@tricitynews.com

B.C. Provincial Court in Port Coquitlam this week testified they were watching Yousefi for several days before his arrest. When Yousefi was arrested, officers seized more than 11 lb. (5.3 kg) of opium, which at the time was worth about $500,000 on the street. It was the largest seizure in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history and was expected to have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;significant impactâ&#x20AC;? on the opium distribution in the Lower Mainland and across Canada, according to the PMPD. Yousefi pleaded not guilty to charges of importing a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking at the start of his trial in October 2011. spayne@tricitynews.com

More than $71 (3.77%) of the increase will be used to pay for two additional police officers and three firefighters along with capital improvements to sports fields and park infrastructure. Some of the money will go toward additional resources for the city’s development services department to improve permit process-

Analysis in arrests of 2 ‘prolific offenders’ Weapons and drug charges against 2 men By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Two Coquitlam men are facing numerous charges after Mounties found drugs and weapons in their City Centre apartment during a search last month. Michael Kim, 24, and Hyun Shin, 22, are facing 10 charges each, including possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace and drug possession for the purpose of trafficking. Kim was expected to appear in court today (Thursday) while Shin is due to retur n on March 26. “Basically, what happened is we received information from our analysts and they turned it into intelligence for the investigators,” said C p l . Ja m i e C h u n g . “That led them to these

two individuals.” Mounties had been following the pair for a while before the arrest, Chung said, and felt that by the end of February, they had enough information to arrest. He added that both men are considered prolific offenders but neither is linked to any gangs in the area. Chung credited the RC M P ’s I n t e g r at e d Drug Suppression Team and investigators’ crime reduction strategy for the arrest. The initiatives target prolific offenders by examining offence patterns and gathering information that can be used in the course of an investigation, according to Staff Sgt. Stan Szelagiewicz, the plainclothes section commander of the Coquitlam RCMP. “Our intelligenceled and evidence-based method of fighting crime has proven to be effective in reducing

criminal acts committed by prolific offenders,” he said. “By focusing on these offenders and crime hot spots our proactive crime reduction method has produced measurable positive results.” He added that co-operation with other police agencies, including the Port Moody Police Department, allows officers from outside the region to contribute to investigations and crime reduction. In 2011, the Integrated Drug Suppression Team street checked more than 350 offenders and conducted 201 drug seizures, recommending 96 criminal charges. Seven firearms were also seized along with a large quantity of other prohibited weapons, including brass knuckles, mace and nunchuks. In addition, close to 100 traffic tickets have been issued to prolific and priority offenders.

Q WHAT WE THINK:

S

pring break came early for School District 43 students thanks to the teachers’ walkout this week. Thirty thousand students were off for three days and will be back on a two-week break when the bell rings Friday afternoon. An extra week was added to spring break last year to help balance the SD43 budget after an experiment in 2010 raised few concerns from parents. Some families might have benefited from the break or daycare wasn’t a problem while others might have thought adding 10 minutes per day instructional time to gain an extra week’s holiday and save $400,000 was a smart move. The Coquitlam Teachers’ Association wasn’t thrilled because substitute teachers lose work. This year, though, the extra week comes on top of three missing school days. Maybe everyone does need a break from the protracted teachers’ dispute but the underlying message is schools are underfunded if holidays have to be extended to save cash.

“H

ey, do you remember Kevin from across the street?” my brother asked me a few Fridays ago during a late-night poker game with some of our friends. “Sure,” I replied. It was only a partial bluff. I did remember Kevin, although I had forgotten about him. It’s been years since our paths crossed. And to be honest, I expected the next sentence out of my brother’s mouth to be bad news. Call me a pessimist but I saw a fair share of foster children come and go from that house across the street. Some stayed for a week, some for a month. And some left when they got into trouble. Kevin was a foster child, too, but he was different. He stayed longer than most, becoming fam-

ily to my neighbours — one of whom was a social worker — and a friend to all the neighbourhood kids, even though he used to drive a few of us crazy, me in particular. He was prone to making inappropriate comments at the worst possible time — like the time when he yelled at a police officer from the passenger window of my car as we drove by. “Why’d you do that?” I asked. “I dunno, I felt like it,” came the reply. Yes, he could be maddening, and no, he didn’t always make the smartest decisions — personally, I make a point of not yelling at law enforcement but maybe that’s just me. So imagine my surprise when my brother finished his sentence. “He’s a professional poker player now — Google him.” Turns out my brother was right. Kevin is, in fact, making a living playing cards — and a healthy living at that. Healthy enough, in fact, that after I figured out how many years I would have to work to equal what’d he’d made in the last 10 months,

I took a second to reconsider my career path. Then I looked down at my own quickly dwindling stack of chips and realized a World Series of Poker bracelet isn’t likely in my future. But maybe one day, it will be in Kevin’s. And though poker has its detractors — those who say it’s not a sport or that no one should make an honest living by gambling — there’s something to be said for those who play professionally. It takes skill and intelligence, and the ability to read both people at the situation, often running mathematical probabilities and percentages through one’s head in the short time it takes to draw the next card. It also takes guts and a killer instinct — the ability to take chances and go all-in even if you’re not 100% sure you’ve got the cards. Frankly, it’s not a skill I thought Kevin had. After all, I was standing just outside the sandwich shop where Kevin worked in high school — and where I mooched food for free — the night it was robbed by a man with

nothing more than a small paring knife. As soon as the thief made his intentions known, Kevin — a hulking teenager who towered over the intruder — bolted for the back door, leaving the thief to figure out the cash register on his own. At the time, having seen too many Sylvester Stallone movies, I wondered why he didn’t just take the guy down. Looking back, it was obviously the smartest move he could have made. Gotta know when to fold ’em, too, I guess. Back in my friend’s basement, with my chip stack whittled away to almost nothing, I sat ruing my poor cards. And I thought again of Kevin. Didn’t make me feel much better about my lost cash, mind you, but I was still happy for him — an awkward but good-hearted lug who made his own luck, even if he wasn’t dealt the best hand in the first place.

FACE TO FACE: Does bilingualism work in Canada?

Price too high to help too few I

t seems former prime minister Pierre Trudeau had two objectives when it came to his policy of official bilingualism. First, he wanted to ensure the constitutional right that any francophone ought to be able to walk into any federal government office and be served in French. This is more than reasonable. Second, he wanted to guarantee the protection and survival of the English-language minority in Quebec and the French-speaking minority outside its borders. This has been an abject failure. In British Columbia, for example, Francophones have essentially been assimilated, with their share of the total population dwindling to about 1.3%. It’s the same story in every province. In fact, unilingual speakers unable to speak the majority language in their province (French in Quebec, English everywhere else) account for less than 1% of Canada’s total population. But we continue to spend millions and millions of dollars providing “language services” throughout the country — not just at the federal level but at the provincial level too. French language services (and English language services in

Quebec) such as education, translation, bilingual signage and government forms cost the provinces $900 million a year, according to a recent report written by the Fraser Institute. The B.C. government, according to the study, spends $23 million a year. And that’s only the direct cost to taxpayers. There’s also the useless duel-labelling requirements that increase the prices of Canadian consumer goods across the board. We’ve got to face the fact that the French language is becoming less and less relevant across the country. In most of our major cities, French is being outpaced by other languages, namely Chinese, Korean and Punjabi. About 38% of those in Vancouver report Chinese as their mother tongue. And in Toronto, 8.8% of residents say Italian is their language of choice compared to only 1.7% who say French is their primary language. This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend a great event — the Festival du Bois in Coquitlam. I’m all for embracing our French heritage by supporting such events but I don’t think it’s necessary to spend millions of dollars every year on the failed federal policy known as bilingualism.

upport for biculturalism in Canada doesn’t come cheap. My colleague has parsimoniously pointed out the cost of operating in two official languages. Apart from the cost, bilingualism often strains the commitment of even we regular drinkers of Canada’s bicultural Kool-Aid. The back of the Cheerios box, lists of product ingredients, assembly instructions, more than half of “O Canada” and most of our Olympic athletes seem to be French. (And it seems stores in B.C. must hire people to make sure that the French side of all product labels are visible on their shelves.) Federal employees require both official languages, giving francophones a government employment advantage; and doesn’t Quebec seem to get more than its share of government contracts, grants and patronage appointments? Increasingly, a main tenet of French-Canadian culture seems to be how poorly Canada has treated them and how they are an underappreciated founding people. And our French-Canadian countrymen seem completely unimpressed with the considerable attempts of English-speaking Canadians to embrace the French language by putting their children

in French immersion programs in public schools all over the country. These irritants should be enough to make Anglophones obnoxiously anti-French. But they’re not, and that’s what makes bilingualism important. The tenacity of Canadian tolerance and “niceness” starts with our acceptance of bilingualism, despite its challenges. This underpins the live-and-let-live attitudes of Canadians. It allows us to accept others — and gay marriage and public health care. Biculturalism is the fount of Canadian cultural attitudes. My colleague would get rid of all this French stuff, saving a buck at the expense of Canadian culture. In most of the world, knowing a second language is considered a privilege. Many Europeans speak three or four languages. Yet in North America, we object to having a second language “shoved down our throats.” A recent attack ad aimed at U.S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, after a long list of indictments, ended with the worst of all: “Mitt Romney speaks French!” We can’t put a price on bilingualism. It means a lot more to Canada than the tantalizing prospect of a unilingual corn flakes box.

TRI-CITYY LETTERS Pooches poo & nip The Editor, Re. “Is enough being done to control pooches and their poo?” (Face to Face, The Tri-City News, March 2). I have had two experiences that have clearly shown the answer to the question is “no.” I want to also say it is usually a few irresponsible pet owners that ruin everything for the majority. Last summer, a friend, her two sons, myself and my two daughters were walking along the trail around Sasamat Lake. It is my understanding that dogs are not to be allowed off-leash on this trail. The kids, ages five to nine years, were running slightly ahead of us when they were confronted by a dog that was off-leash. The owner was behind the dog on a cell phone paying no attention and it was running around jumping on the kids. My youngest daughter is not comfortable around dogs and unfortunately the dog nipped her stomach. The dog owner frantically tried to control her

Pooches in parks is a hot topic. dog while my child was hysterical. While I was trying to comfort her, the owner managed to get control of her dog and tried to come back and apologize but my daughter was so upset she ran away as she didn’t want to be anywhere near the dog. The only positive thing about this incident is that it could have been much worse. My daughter suffered only a nip and a scare and is OK now. The second incident involves the other lovely issue, poo. Just last weekend, my older daughter was playing soccer at McLean Park in Port Coquitlam. It

had just finished snowing and the field was covered, and I didn’t realize at first that the snow was concealing so much poo you could not take a step without stepping in it. To make matters worse, the girls’ water bottles were on the grass and when my daughter went to pick hers up her hand got covered in poo. Now, with the amount of poo on a field that size, it had to be more than one dog owner. Is this a common occurrence or was I just there on a bad day? I don’t think I want to find out. I was pretty disgusted. Christine Stuart, Port Moody

The Editor As a learner-support teacher, one of my goals is to increase my students’ receptive and expressive vocabularies. I often turn to several different dictionaries, both the online version and the oldfashioned paper kind, to put together a comprehensive definition of a word. Thus, with the aid of Oxford, Webster and Wikipedia, I offer this definition of mediation: to resolve or settle differences, through private and confidential negotiation, with all the conflicting parties, using a wholly impartial mediator to promote reconciliation and compromise. It seems Premier Christy Clark could use a little extra tutoring on the concept. I offer my services. Janet Wiltshire, Port Coquitlam

I have been suffering from severe arthritis on my right shoulder and elbow. With limited range of motion, even simple actions such as putting food in the mouth became very difďŹ cult. After a series of low laser therapy at Tri-City Chiropractic Inc., my shoulder and elbow saw great improvement. My range of motion improved signiďŹ cantly and life is easier and pain free.

New works yard possible in NEC By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Major g rowth on C o q u i t l a m â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s B u rke Mountain is prompting the city to set up a satellite works yard in the northeast neighbourhood. The city is looking at four potential sites for the facility: around Eagle Mountain Road; Pipeline Road (north of gravel pits); near Harper Road; and the Gilleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trail area. According to a report that went to council on Monday, Burke Mountain will make up 17.5% of the public works projects over the coming years. A

new satellite works yard would reduce travel time from the Austin/Mariner service centre and make better use of materials storage, the report states. Bill Susak, Coquitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general manager of engineering and operations, told council the city would have to buy about five acres of private property for the satellite operations as its biggest land parcel is in the Partington Creek Village core and â&#x20AC;&#x153;we want to be away from residential development,â&#x20AC;? Susak said. The city is planning a master community on Burke Mountain for up to 20,000 more residents over the next 20 years.

Other Coquitlam council news:

45 HOMES

A p ro l i f i c h o m e builder in Coquitlam is planning to develop a subdivision on Burke Mountain land thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designated as environmentally sensitive. On Monday, city council granted first reading to change the official community plan and rezone a 9.77-acre parcel on Harper Road, which is located in the Smiling Creek neighbourhood. Under Morningstar Homesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; proposal, which is scheduled to go to public hearing, the subdivision would have

45 single-family lots â&#x20AC;&#x201D; three more than allowed under the neighbourhood master plan, due to a reconfiguration of a small, unnamed creek and a roadside ditch. According to a city staff report, both are considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;permanent, nonfishbearing protected watercourses.â&#x20AC;? A public hearing on the application is set for March 26.

CREEK WORK

Another study on a Coquitlam watershed will get flowing this year. On Monday, council allocated $150,000 from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sewer and drainage utility surplus reserve for management

planning on Austin and Rochester creeks, around the North Road precinct. The work is being tied to the upcoming Evergreen Line, which when built in 2016, will run from Lougheed Tow n C e n t re i n Burnaby to Coquitlam Town Centre. A l s o o n M o n d ay, city council approved $150,000 for the design of sediment traps on Scott and Hoy creeks. Dana Soong, Coquitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager of utility programs, said the city will be reimbursed for two thirds of the project costs provincial and federal grants.

R’view lands tested By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The closing down of Riverview Hospital continues but, now, that involves more than just locking the doors on a newly emptied building. Environmental consultants are on the hospital grounds to survey for potential contamination and to develop a site remediation plan. “It’s a normal part of the decommissioning process,” said David Weir, spokesperson for the Provincial Health

Services Association. Crews will be drilling in up to 40 locations throughout Riverview’s 244 acres and the work is expected to take about a month. Norma Gillespie of the Riverview Horticultural Centre Society is troubled that workers may be digging up the ground and disturbing the sensitive underpinnings of Riverview’s famed arboretum. “I’m worried about the tree roots and whether this group... will respect the trees on site or whether they even know the roots

are down there,” she said. Gillespie also lamented the ongoing winding down of services at Riverview at a time when more assistance is needed. Late last year, Valleyview, the 300-plus bed facility that housed geriatric psychiatry patients for about 50 years, was shut down and an innovative program that treats formerly homeless people with concurrent disorders is expected to shut down this spring as Riverview closes for good in June. spayne@tricitynews.com

A city-organized gathering last year fo r n ew a n d re cent immigrants to Coquitlam could become an annual showcase. On Monday, the chair of the city’s multiculturalism advisory committee, pressed staff to repeat the Welcome Event every year as last September’s session drew around 300 newcomers, many of them looking for information about how city government works as well as job opportunities. Coun. Linda Reimer made her comment as council-in-committee reviewed a report on the progress of the city’s multiculturalism strategy, a twoyear program that’s designed to get city employees more in tune with the needs of the local immigrant population. T h e s t r a t e g y, which was adopted by council last July and funded in part by Citizenship and Immig ration Canada, shows 39% of Coquitlam residents were born outside of Canada and 40% of them settled in the city between 2001 and 2005; most don’t speak English at home. Much of the immigration is a result of School District 43’s international education program, the largest of its kind in the country. This year, according to international ed. director Patricia Gartland, 990 foreign-born teens are studying in Tri-City public schools and many have brought their families with them — most of them hailing from China, South Korea, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam. Each student pays $12,800 in tuition fees for the academic year. Dan MacDonald, Coquitlam’s communications manager, said the city is trying to keep up with demand — at least online — with staff soon posting key information about city services and programs on www. coquitlam.ca in languages other than English.

The B.C. Utilities Commission has dismissed a complaint by an anti-smart meter group trying to put a stop to BC Hydro’s installation of the meters. C i t i z e n s fo r S a f e Technology applied to the commission in late December seeking a “freeze” on the installation of wireless electricity consumption meters. Lawyer David Aaron argued that the province’s Clean Energy Act exempts the installation from commission approval but the legislation doesn’t cover the “wireless and snooping component of the smart meter program.” The commission found that the ter m “snooping” refer red to a radio chip in each meter that would only be activated if the customer wishes to install an in-home feedback device to show electricity consumption readings from the meter on a small wall display. Once the smart meter system is complete, BC Hydro customers will be able to review their consumption by logging into their online account, which currently displays BC

A variety of wireless in-home displays can be used to display readings from BC Hydro smart meters. Hydro bills and a summary of manual meter readings and estimates of consumption. The in-home display is an option to make tracking consumption more convenient. In its submission, BC Hydro said the chip is not capable of collecting or storing data, “real-time collection and monitoring of detailed information” or remote control of networked appliances or systems. The commission also noted that the provincial legislation did not prescribe any particular kind of meter but left the technical details to BC Hydro engineers. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Tri-City students to work with top geneticists in the field

Gleneagle teachers carry signs outside their school during job action Monday.

Peaceful protests & few students attend continued from front page

The school is set to mount Legally Blonde but the cancellation of rehearsals plus uncertainty about future job action is making it difficult to set a date for the musical and sell tickets, explained student Brooklyn Crick, who organized the demonstration. The BC Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Federation has decided to postpone any more job action but the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 41,000 teachers will vote next weekend on what to do next in their campaign against Bill 22. Two press releases issued by the federation this week expressed concerns that the removal of class size limits for Grades 4 to 12 will hurt drama and music classes. The bill allows larger classes without consultation with teachers if a principal and superintendent consider learning conditions appropriate. Teachers say they are worried drama classes with more than 30 students will be difficult to manage. Currently, two teachers can teach a large class. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a good way to do it,â&#x20AC;? says Colin Plant, president of the Association of BC Drama Educators. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The large class allows us to mount large-scale musicals that are elaborate and spectacular.â&#x20AC;? B u t fo r j u s t o n e teacher to teach a class of 55 students, as could be the situation in his case, would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;unfathomable,â&#x20AC;? Plant said in the press release. Currently in SD43, only band and choir classes are allowed to have more than 30 stu-

dents. But other classes in the higher grades often reach the maximum and teachers are worried that is affecting student learning. At a recent board o f e d u c at i o n m e e t ing, SD43 shop teachers complained their cl a s s s i z e s a re t o o larg e to adequately teach their subjects. The teachers said they would like to see middle school technology classes reduced to 24 students, from about 30, and high school shop classes reduced to 20, from 24, as recommended by the BC Technology Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association Best Practices Guide. In elementary grades, where classes sizes are firm, the district typically creates split classes to stay within the required maximum.

LONGER BREAK

Monday is the start of a two-week spring break in School District 43. Last spring, the board of education approved the longer break, made up by adding 10 minutes of instructional time

per day throughout the school year, to save $400,000 in substitute teacher costs. On March 27, a school board meeting will be held to discuss the 2012/â&#x20AC;&#x2122;13 budget. It will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the district office board room.

Four Tri-City students will get a closer look at the hidden world of human DNA during a spring break work-experience with B.C. gene researchers. A program called Gene Researcher for a Week is held each year to provide Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brightest young students an opportunity to study the field of human genetics, according to Sandra MacPherson, board chair for the Canadian Gene Cure Foundation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The hope is that the experience these students have will encourage them to pursue human genetics as a career and, eventually, become the next generation of leading edge scientists,â&#x20AC;? she said. The four local students are among 48 chosen from across Canada on the basis of their interest in science, academic standing and community involvement. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get a chance to work with leading scientists in leading-edge laboratories to learn how genes cause human genetic disorders and how top scientists translate these findings into treatments and cures for genetic diseases. The local students and their placements are: â&#x20AC;˘ Simon Wang of Coquitlam, a Pinetree secondary school student, who will be at BC Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital with host scientist Dr. Bruce Carleton; â&#x20AC;˘ Lauren Wilson of Coquitlam, Gleneagle, who will be at the UBC Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology with host scientist Dr. Brad Hoffman; â&#x20AC;˘ Annie Yu of Port Coquitlam, Terry Fox, who will also be at BC Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital; â&#x20AC;˘ and Kais Khimji of Coquitlam, St. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, who will be at the Centre for Molecular Medicine and Therapeutics with host Dr. Michael Kobor. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

HEALTHY COMMUNITY CHALLENGE: You can sign up, too

T

he mayors are in. Are you? Last month, four Metro Vancouver mayors — Coquitlam’s Richard Stewart, Surrey’s Dianne Watts, Langley City’s Peter Fassbender and Abbotsford’s Bruce Banman — signed up for the Healthy Community Challenge, which aims to get Lower Mainland residents to lead healthier lives. They had their Body Mass Index (BMI) measured and recorded, and now the rest of the community can do the same. The three-month long challenge — which is free for those who choose to participate — begins this weekend, with an official “weigh in” on Saturday. The challenge begins in earnest Monday. Those wishing to take part in the challenge may sign up online ( (www.healthycommunitychallenge.com) m and head to any number of locations for a BMI measurement Saturday (see list below right). Once registered, participants will have access through the website to a variety of health and fitness resources, and will also be able to track their fitness progress. Like many who will sign up to take the challenge, the four mayors are participating for a variety of reasons.

STEWART

Erin Cebula, BC Children’s Hospital Spokesperson

Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart has a very specific goal for the Healthy Community Challenge. Stewart usually tries to stay fit but after being hit by a car while campaigning during last fall’s municipal election, his activity level has gone downhill. Stewart is hoping the fitness challenge gets him back into an exercise routine that will

And like most things, Stewart is in the challenge to win it. “I’m sending Dianne [Watts] a box of chocolates each week,” he joked. What does he hope to accomplish at the end of it all? “I’m going to walk the Coquitlam Crunch,” Stewart said, referring to the trail that along a BC Hydro that climbs from Guildford Way near Scott Creek middle school to Westwood Plateau. “A long time ago, my goal was to walk… unassisted. I can do that most of the time now but I’ve always had a doubt whether I

could do the Coquitlam Crunch. “I’m going to make it.”

WATTS

Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts is similarly enthused despite still being in recovery from injuries sustained last July when she was thrown from horse. The fall may have fractured her back but it failed to break her spirit. The friendly jabs

have already begun. Watts opened up the war of wit by saying she has an advantage over the pot-bellied mayoral men. “I don’t have a gut. The boys have belly fat,” she joked. Stewart’s box of chocolates arrived at her door shortly after, a volley she returned by dispatching an extralarge meat-lover’s pizza.

‘I’d like to see my abs one more time before I die’ continued from page A22

Still, Watts is taking the fitness challenge seriously And for her, the challenge begins with watching what she eats. Already a health food fanatic, Watts says she’ll “fine-tune it a bit,” which means more fish and less red meat. As for the workouts, those are going to take a little more forethought and expert advice. “The program has to be tailor-made for my body,” Watts said. Any workout she undertakes will be in consultation with her doctor, she says, but she expects to be doing a bit more yoga and walking in order to be gentle to her spine.

can have a big effect on health and he’s hoping the city will get behind the program. As for his own health goals, Banman has yet to set any specific targets. “My resting heart rate ticks along a little bit quicker than I know it should and I’m a little bit heavier than I want to be.” The first-time

Abbotsford mayor tipped the scales at 198 lb. which he said is already a big improvement from a year ago, when he hit the 230 lb. mark. “I did lose 20 pounds while running for office,” he said. He believes in the positive effects of exercise and said the public has a responsibility to

For Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, a visit to the doctor nine years ago served as a wake-up call when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and told he had gallstones and Type 2 diabetes. The news he was a diabetic didn’t come as a great shock. He’d seen the warning signs but chose to ignore them. While his ultimately successful cancer treatment and gallbladder surgery were in the hands of his physicians, Fassbender knew that controlling his diabetes would be his job. That’s one reason he’s taking part in the 90-day Healthy Community Challenge. “Our health care costs are getting out of control,” he said. “The mindset is, the system will look after us, that we’re not responsible for ourselves. “I’m responsible for my health.” Fassbender’s doctor advised eating small meals throughout the day to regulate blood sugar levels. He also urged the mayor to keep stress to a minimum and get plenty of rest. “Yes, this is exactly the job for that,” Fassbender laughed. Working an average of 60 to 70 hours per week, he is learning to strike a balance between work and a healthy lifestyle. For a start, he’ll pack raw veggies to snack on, walk whenever possible and take the stairs. He’ll also work out with a personal trainer and offer regular updates on his progress as part of the mayors’ challenge. Not everyone can afford that kind of personal attention or even a gym membership — but they don’t have to, Fassbender said. “Getting fit is not a huge leap,” he said. “It doesn’t have to be an expensive program. It can cost as little as the price

take charge of its own well-being. “We cannot expect the health care system to do everything for us. Health is something you can make a personal choice about, to do something for yourself.” As mayor, Banman tends to rush around from one event to another and he has noticed the drain it is

putting on him. “I’d like to get my wind back.” At 50 years of age, he said he remembers when his legs didn’t hurt when he danced. He wants to stay active to prolong the quality of his life. “Motion is life. When you’re not moving anymore, there’s only one place they put you.”

Szylowski, as well as Trevor St. Hilaire, 18, from Coquitlam, were chosen to compete in the 10th annual contest at the Electronic Arts campus, playing NHL and FIFA games on Xbox 360. Szylowski, who was diagnosed with leukemia in 2008, started to play video games in hospital to pass the time. Among the athletes on hand for the event were BC Lions’ Angus Reid and Geroy Simon, and Whitecaps captain Jay DeMerit. And, at right, Jason Jakubec, treasurer of the Crossroads Hospice Society, recently accepted $1,100 from the Qi Gong group that meets every Sunday at Coquitlam centre mall for healing exercises. The group collects cash for every session and has donated a total of $12,050 to Crossroads since the weekly event began.

RING THEM BELLS

Your voice, our future: imagining the library

RCH CASH

The Port Moody Public Library is planning for the years ahead. Be part of it! Here’s how you can participate:

Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart was named the best bell ringer in the region when he won the 2011 Salvation Army’s Mayor’s Challenge for the Christmas kettle campaign. Stewart — along with his “elves,” councillors Craig Hodge, Linda Reimer, Terry O’Neilll and Brent Asmundson — bested the mayors of Port Coquitlam and New Westminster by raising $834.04 for the cause. The Sally Ann’s Doug Fynn and Rhonda Gale were to present the trophy to Stewart on Thursday at Coquitlam city hall. A private medical benefits provider recently injected $5,000 into the psychiatry unit at Royal Columbian Hospital, which serves the Tri-Cities. The donation was part of the Pacific Blue Cross’ new foundation that will provide financial assistance to organizations that support mental health and chronic disease.

Herons and rites of spring at Colony Farm GREEN SCENE Elaine Golds

TAKE A HERON WALK IN MARCH

You have two special upcoming opportunities to enjoy the great blue herons of Colony Farm Park when volunteers from the Burke Mountain Naturalists and Colony Farm Park Association co-host nature walks on Saturday, March 17 and Sunday, March 25 starting at 9:30 a.m. These walks will start from the parking lot in the park at the end of Colony Farm Road in Coquitlam. The walks, on level ground, will last for approximately two hours and are suitable for all ages. No registration is needed and the walks are offered free of charge. While the focus will be on the herons and their prenuptial behaviour, walk participants will be able to enjoy all the birds of Colony Farm Park including, possibly, some early spring migrants.

A large heronry is located in Coq.

M

arch is a marvellous month to enjoy the birds at Coquitlam’s Colony Farm Regional Park, especially the great blue herons. These large and elegant birds can be reliably seen there throughout the winter months. During that time, the herons hunt for food in their typical solitary fashion. They can be seen in the fields searching for voles and mice or, alternatively, in the ditches where they prey upon salamanders, frogs and small fish. But as spring approaches, the herons begin to prepare for the nesting season and undergo a dramatic change in their behaviour. The great blue herons in this part of B.C. are a unique subspecies of herons that are found across Canada. Because of relatively mild coastal winters, local herons are not forced to undertake fall migra-

the heronry established in Stanley Park, where these herons have become accustomed to human activity. The habitat value of Colony Farm Park, which offers excellent winter foraging opportunities for herons, is augmented by a large stand of cottonwood trees at the mouth of the Coquitlam River that supports a heronry. This area, just south of the Mary Hill Bypass and adjacent to Colony Farm, was protected as a provincial Wildlife Management Area in 1995 specifically because of its heronry. This colony consisted of only 11 nests in 1992 but it rapidly increased in size when a heronry was abandoned at DeBoville Slough in 1994 and these herons moved to the mouth of the Coquitlam River. Since the Coquitlam site was protected, this heronry has continued to grow in size and is now thought to be one of the largest in the Lower Mainland. Elaine Golds is a Port Moody environmentalist who is vice-president of Burke Mountain Naturalists, chair of the Colony Farm Park Association and past president of the PoMo Ecological Society.

This great blue heron has mistakenly speared a fish rather than catch it between the bills of its beak and must find a way to swallow it. tions south in search of an adequate food supply. In the spring and summer, these herons are often observed locally fishing in shallow water. With their long necks recoiled like a snake, their hunting strategy is to patiently stand still, wait for fish to swim within reach and then strike. During the winter months, shallow water can freeze

and fish are, in general, less abundant. As a consequence, the herons must switch their hunting activities to grassy meadows, where they find voles and mice to satisfy their appetite. Of course, meadow habitat is becoming a rare feature in the lower mainland so places such as Colony Farm Regional Park, with its abundant fields, are es-

pecially attractive hunting areas for great blue herons. In B.C., the nonmigrating population of great blue herons, listed as a subspecies at risk, is thought to number less than 10,000. These herons, especially those that reside in the Lower Mainland, nest in large colonies — called a heronry — in a grove of tall trees. The spe-

cies of trees seems not to matter as much as their height; either cottonwoods or coniferous trees are suitable. In contrast, within forested areas of southwestern B.C., great blue herons nest in smaller groups where their nests are more easily hidden in the canopy of mature forests. The preference of herons in the Lower Mainland for a large heronry is not well understood. It could be related to the behaviour of predators or a general lack of suitable stands of trees in the rapidly developing urban areas of Metro Vancouver and agricultural areas of the lower Fraser Valley.

One thing is clear, though: The large heron colonies of the Lower Mainland, which number under a dozen in total, are notoriously unstable. It is not unheard of for a nesting colony of great blue herons to shift the location of their nesting colony after only a decade of use or less. The reason for this dramatic abandonment of heronries is, again, not clear but appears to be related to the appearance of predators such as bald eagles or raccoons, which prey upon young herons in the nest. Herons are also sensitive to people moving under their nests, with the exception of

New Residential Construction Guide Benefits Homeowners and Builders Homeowners have a new tool at their fingertipss to help them better understand how warranty providers evaluate claims for possible design, labour or material defects in new homes. The Residential Construction Performance Guide is the newest online resource available on the provincial Homeowner Protection Office website at www.hpo.bc.ca. It explains how homes covered by home warranty insurance should perform. Every new home built for sale by a licensed residential builder in B.C. is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. “For most consumers, buying a new home is one of the largest financial investments they will make. So it’s essential that homebuyers can make that investment with confidence, knowing that they will not be faced with additional expenses to repair defects after they move in,” said Tony Gioventu, executive director of the Condominium Home Owners’ Association and an advocate for consumer protection. This simple, practical guide is easy to use. It outlines more than 200 possible defects that are searchable online. This includes the most common defect claims that might be submitted under a home warranty insurance policy – from windows that malfunction, to driveway or interior concrete floors that have cracked, to siding that has buckled. Designed primarily for conventional low-rise, wood-frame homes, the guide also provides some helpful guidelines for the common property of multi-unit buildings. Builders can also use the guide to help ensure that they deliver high performance homes.

Construction boom Coquitlam’s economic development manager predicts a robust 2012 By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Coquitlam is posting a rosy outlook for 2012 after a year of record-setting construction in 2011. The BC Economic Forecast Council is predicting a moderate 2.2% growth for the province spurred by a strong export market, healthy international investment and increasing immigration numbers and Coquitlam is well poised to benefit from these trends, according to David Munro, economic development manager for the city. In a report to council, Munro predicted a strong industrial market, a stable retail and office market and a robust housing market. Economic growth in Coquitlam for 2012 is being measured against 2011, which was a banner year for construction. Permit values totaled $394 million, a record setting number for the city, with commercial, institutional and industrial develop-

ment leading the way. Building permit values for residential construction were 37% higher than 2010 and commercial, institutional and industrial development outperformed 2010 by 113%, according to the report. In comparison, Metro Vancouver saw a 1% increase overall with a 7% increase in the commercial and other construction category, the report notes. Among the commercial highlights include components of the Grand Central Phase 2 and Oasis projects in City Centre and a new White Spot Triple O, Drivethru on United Boulevard next to Home Depot. In the leasing market, notable transitions included the renewal of a lease for Rolls Royce Canada Ltd. on North Bend off United Boulevard, as well as Ten Peaks Coffee Co. and Eco Fab leases. In the retail sector, large leasing transactions included Hanin Mall on North Road and Eagle Ridge Place on Barnet Highway. Meanwhile, the total number of business licenses increased from 5,488 in 2010 to 5,639 in 2011. Munro expects competitive housing costs combined with proximity to Vancouver, qual-

More women want to be their own boss — study Barriers include family/time crunch A new study from BMO Bank of Montreal reveals that 71 per cent of Canadian women would become their own boss if they had the opportunity, and eight in ten women say that having access to role models or mentors would be a key ingredient to their success as business owners. In addition, onequarter say that balancing work and life as a ‘mompreneur’ would be a challenge. “Balancing work and life commitments such as caring for children or elder family members is a big consideration, one that is almost as important as translating ideas into practice and finding customers,” said Cathy Pin, vice president, Commercial Banking, BMO Bank

of Montreal. Yet, being your own boss can also give you greater flexibility in your life and also provide an opportunity to build something you are passionate about. “Fortunately, when striking out on your own business venture, you don’t need to be alone. There are a variety of resources available including online blogs, websites, and organizations such as the Women President’s Organization where you can share information with other women business owners, seek out mentors and take inspiration from role models,” added Pin. The BMO study conducted by Le ger Marketing found: • When starting a new business, the ability to share knowledge is believed to be important by 86 percent of women surveyed • 83% of potential women entrepreneurs also stated that having

Glow event to be a fun affair continued from page A32

“And what better time to announce the event than in time for International Women’s Day on March 8?” This is an event for women from across the Lower Mainland, including the Tri-Cities, Surrey, Langley, Maple Ridge, Burnaby and beyond. About 200 women are expected, including professionals, business owners and mothers. Glow will welcome them all with the red carpet treatment, complete with an on-site “paparazzi-style” photographer, and a chance to win a makeover with a free outfit from Bellissima and other prizes. The event’s tradeshow floor will offer a mix of exciting exhibitor tables and wares for sale, along with a silent auction and seminar series on topics that include personal growth, love and sex, health and body image. Well-known experts from these fields will present 30-minute, engaging sessions intended to inspire and empower attendees. Speakers include Dr. Ali Zentner, who will speak on a Girlfriend’s Guide to Health, Ted Ku n t z , a u t h o r a n d Tri-City News columnist, who will speak on Finding the Peace and Joy Within, and life and intimacy coach Kim Amani, who will speak on Women, Life, Love

and Sex. A martini bar, complimentary hors d’oeuvres will round out the evening, along with a deejay who will open up the dance floor for a letyour-hair-down dance party celebration. The night will end with a complimentary swag bag for each attendee. Sellers, a Coquitlam resident. mother of two girls and owner of Com-Tech Lear ning Solutions, got the idea for Glow in a dream that was also a personal revelation. “Not only did I want to evolve myself to be like those women in my dream — in everything from my career and family life to health and image, but I wanted to help other women do the same,” says Sellers, who then put together a group of women volunteers with similar goals and dubbed them Achieve Radiance Events and Communications. Glow is their first event. Glow is also a charitable initiative, with proceeds going to the BC Cancer Agency, focusing on cancers that affect women, and Tri-City Transitions, a charitable organization providing help to women and families who have been impacted by violence and abuse. Admission is $55. For more information, to register or to become a sponsor, see www. achieveradiance.com

access to mentors would be important, were they to start their own business For those Canadian women who would see themselves as potential small business owners, traditional gender preferences still apply: • One in three women surveyed would start a business in the food and hospitality or arts and entertainment sectors • Only five percent of women indicate that they would want to become an entrepreneur in information technology or a skilled trade These preferences align with government statistics that show that food and accommodation industries have the highest share of businesses that are m a j o r i t y - ow n e d by women.

Architecture just one amazing feature at Evelyn

Not your average tower development Set into the West Vancouver hillside, Onni’s Evelyn seems to be growing out of the mountain. With a unique design and amazing features, buyers are already snapping up the suites. “You can’t really compare this to a runof-the-mill tower,” says Onni sales manager Nick Belmar. “You won’t find another project with this design and architecture.” The architecture of Evelyn is seriously stunning, with floor-to-ceiling glass windows that let in huge amounts of light, and a stepped design that means the terraces become the roofs of the homes below. This makes for incredible southfacing views, and a quiet atmosphere as every home feels more private. The terraces range from 100 to 1,600 square feet, so

there is no shortage of outdoor entertaining potential. The buildings almost seem to flow down the hillside, making for a very natural feel to the entire project. The first phase includes 105 homes in two different building styles, Cliffside and At Forest’s Edge. “There is a good amount of green space around,” says Belmar. “The way the project was designed (means it) blends into the landscape ... it’s very impressive.” West Vancouver is one of the most highly sought-after communities in the Lower Mainland, and buyers are able to find much to love there. Homes at Evelyn start at $759,900. For more information, visit www.onni.com/ evelyn or call 604-922-0330.

Finding a home away from home

Catch cabin fever at the BC Log Home, Timber Frame & Country Living Show in Abbotsford by Kerry Vital

If you’ve ever wanted to know more about log or timber frame homes, or are looking for something new for your home away from home, the BC Log Home, Timber Frame and Country Living Show is the perfect place for you to be on March 10 and 11. Taking place at the Tradex in Abbotsford from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, exhibitors will be ready and waiting to answer your every question. Organizers expect close to 100 booths and some full-size log structures to be showcased at the event. Attendees will be able to browse the latest products and check out the newest technology from companies at the top of the log and timber frame home industry, as well as learn about the latest trends and services, such as generators, outdoor furniture, hot tubs, awnings, watersports and accessories, and alternative energy. This year is expected to be a fantastic year for the industry, as the government has recently earmarked funds to continue its growth. “Many members I have spoken to have seen a dramatic increase in interest from U.S. buyers in the last

six months, and western Canada has shown a lot of promise,” says BC Log and Timber Industry Association board member and general manger with Sitka Log Homes Walter Bramsleven. “As well, with B.C. leading the way toward proving energy efficiency and setting some basic standards such as blower door analysis and thermal testing, we once again will be the trend-setting builders in the log and timber frame world.” With vacation cabins continuing to grow in popularity and timber frame homes also becoming a trend, this show is coming at just the right time. The show has been dubbed one of the best and biggest in Canada, so those interested in finding out more about this type of home will find everything they could possibly imagine under one roof. Tickets are available at the Tradex ticket counter on the day of the show. For more information, visit www. bclogandcountrylivingshow.ca.

Submitted photos

Roughly 100 booths will be featured at this year’s BC Log Home, Timber Frame and Country Living Show, taking place in Abbotsford on March 10 and 11. Attendees will find plenty of information about all facets of log and timber frame homes.

Buy a Power Smart home, save three ways Save now, and save later: not many homes can promise you that. But when you buy a home from a Power Smart New Home Builder you’ll save money, including reduced mortgage insurance and lower monthly bills. An EnerGuide label is your assurance that the home is independently rated to be energy-efficient. And don’t forget, an energyefficient home is more comfortable too. Layout, amenities, and those much-promoted granite countertops. There’s a lot to think about when you’re buying a new home. But there’s one feature that can make a positive difference to your wallet when you purchase, and every month that you own your home. Choosing a Power Smart New Home gives home buyers an easy way to find a home that is designed and built to save energy. “Buying an energy-efficient home is one of the best ways to maximize your home budget,” says Doug Overholt, representative for BC Hydro’s Power Smart New Home program. “If you save on expenses, you can afford more mortgage. But many new homes are not built with energy efficiency in mind - so looking for the EnerGuide label is wise.” An EnerGuide rating is a standard measure of a home’s energy performance, rated on a scale of 0 to 100. A rating of 0 represents a home with major air leakage, no insulation and extremely high energy consumption. A rating of 100 represents a house that is airtight, well insulated, sufficiently ventilated and requires no purchased energy. The first benefit you’ll find is on your mortgage insurance: Power Smart New Homes qualify for a 10 per cent refund on Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation Mortgage

Buying an energy-efficient home is one of the best ways to maximize your home budget,” says Doug Overholt, representative for BC Hydro’s Power Smart New Home program. “If you save on expenses, you can afford more mortgage.” Insurance. You’ll also save on your monthly bills. Homes that are rated EnerGuide 80 use at least 30 per cent less energy than an average new home. That’s money in your pocket every month – especially great when energy costs are only expected to rise. Buy a home with a rating higher than EnerGuide 80, and save even more. The third benefit is resale value; as energy costs rise and green building continues to gain popularity, a home that demonstrates its efficiency will likely hold its value as compared to one that is inefficient with high monthly operating costs. There are other benefits as well, Overholt says. “Builders who are smart about energy efficiency are adopting improved building practices and making use of new technologies. Their homes are more comfortable – cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter – while using less energy overall. It’s hard to add energy efficiency later; you need to get it built in from the start.” The Power Smart New Home program gives you an easy way to find houses, townhomes, and condos that are designed to save energy. For more information and to find your energy efficient dream home, check out the full listing of Power Smart New Home Builders and featured developments at bchydro.com/pshomes.

WE MAKE IT EASY TO FIND A HOME THAT’S BUILT TO SAVE. NOT ALL NEW HOMES ARE BUILT WITH ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN MIND. That’s why it pays to look for a Power Smart New Home Builder when shopping for your next home. Power Smart New Homes are independently rated EnerGuide 80 or higher, which means they use at least 30% less energy than an average new home. And since they’re built the smart way, they stay cooler in the summer and cozier in the winter—all while saving you money for years to come.

Express streak comes to end Team splits island road trip with loss against the Clippers By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Rapids start provincials with win By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEW

The Riverside Rapids started their quest for a AAA High School Basketball Provincial Championship banner with a decisive victory over the Mt. Baker Wild on Wednesday. The early morning game saw the Port Coquitlam club outscore their opponents by more than a two-to-one margin on the way to a 104-43 victory. But while the early competition in the B.C. tourney may not be strong, Rapids coach Paul Langford said he is not worried about his team becoming over-confident. “The [Wild] played really well,” he said Thursday morning. “We know we have to play hard every game so hopefully complacency won’t be an

issue for us.” The Rapids saw scoring up and down the bench, going 45.8% in field goals and 34.8% in three pointers. The team was also 47% from the free throw line. Michelle Spacek led the team in scoring with 21 points, while Megan Sherwood sank seven baskets for 14 points and Laiken Cerenzie tallied 13 points. With the lop-sided score, Langford was able to get everyone on the roster into the game, offering experience to younger players and rest for the older ones. “We want to keep everybody fresh,” he said. “We know it is going to be a long four days. This is not a quick tournament.” But while the Riverside Rapids got

off to a strong start at this year’s provincial championship, other Tri-City teams did not fair quite as well. The Gleneagle Talons dropped their first game of the tournament to the Claremont Spartans, losing 48-38. Jessica Jazedarehee led the team in scoring with 11 points. Later in the day the Ter ry Fox Ravens lost 68-25 to the South Kamloops Titans, one of the top ranking teams in the province. Katie Devaney led the Ravens in scoring with 14 points. All three Tri-City clubs were expected to play Thursday afternoon after The Tri-City News’ deadline.

The Riverside Rapids, who won the Fraser Valley Championship two weeks ago, had a strong start at the B.C. AAA basketball tourney on Wednesday.

The Coquitlam Express came off the tracks in the third period Wednesday night ending their six-game winning streak with a 7-1 loss to the Nanaimo Clippers. The home team had no problem finding the back of the net in the final frame, tallying five unanswered goals in front of 873 fans at the Frank Crane Arena on Vancouver Island. Coquitlam’s Brady Shaw managed to net a single in the second period, assisted by BCHL player of the week Alex Petan, however it was the only time the Express were able to light the goal lamp. Andrew Gladium had a three-point game for the Clippers with a goal and two assists, while t e a m m at e s C l ay t o n Chessa also notched three points. Both were named stars of the game along with Nanaimo’s Mike Sones, who scored a goal and an assist. Coquitlam goalie Cole Huggins was yanked with less than six minutes left in the game after turning away 34 of 40 shots. Backup goalie Khaleed Devji stopped eight of nine in the 6:18 he played. Both teams were 0 for 3 on the powerplay. Twenty four hours earlier and 100 km down the road the Express were a completely different team. see OFFENCE, page 51

COQUITLAM METRO-FORD SOCCER PLAYERS of the WEEK LAUREN ASKEW COLE MOROKHOVICH e! n S...forcyoourrCeMFSO Coquitlam Metro-Ford KAOS Coquitlam Metro-Ford SPARTANS am Te C This past weekend, the Under 14 Metro-Ford Spartans defeated arch-rivals Fusion FC by a hard-fought 1-0 margin. Forward COLE MOROKHOVICH was instrumental in the Spartans’ victory as he drove the Fusion defenders to distraction with his speed, power, and playmaking ability. To cap off a brilliant individual performance, Cole scored the lone goal of the game just before half-time when he cut in from the right flank, powered his way past a couple of Fusion defenders before calmly slotting the ball into the far top corner of the net in clinical fashion. Later in the second half, Cole set up what appeared to be the Spartans’ second goal, only to have it called back on a questionable offside call. For his excellent performance this past weekend, COLE MOROKHOVICH has been selected as Coquitlam Metro-Ford Male Player of the Week!

THE ALL NEW

The Under 18 Metro-Ford Kaos lost to the Vancouver Fusion by a heartbreaking 1-0 margin this past weekend in a BCSPL match. Despite the loss, goalkeeper LAUREN ASKEW turned in a spectacular performance for her Kaos team as she made numerous excellent saves, challenged her opponents tenaciously, and distributed the ball to her teammates quickly and precisely. Lauren also demonstrated an enormous amount of leadership as she supported her teammates and communicated with her defenders positively during the entire 90 minutes of play. For her excellent performance this past weekend, LAUREN ASKEW has been named Coquitlam Metro-Ford female player of the week.

Know the equipment before going fishing TIGHT LINES Jeff Weltz

said to be a miraculous new innovation. At that time practitioners were using yarn treated with fly-floatant or stick-on pieces of closed cell foam. I asked: why not use a small float? The suggestion was regarded as sacrilegious. Today, one of the many styles of strike indicators offered in fly shops are miniature copies of the push button floats we used in the 1960s. Fly line backing: Fly line backing is a line that you put on your fly reel before your fly line to give extra line for the times that a fish runs past the length of your fly line. This product is most commonly made of dacron material, which is made from polyethylene in factories like the DuPont company. Here is my question: Why is dacron backing generally more expensive than dacron trolling lines

It is a device you attach to your line to help you see when a fish takes your fly/lure/bait. In the dark ages of the late 1950s when I started fishing we used floats for this.

The Coquitlam Express notched a win against Victoria but came up short against Nanaimo during an island road trip this week .

Offence aplenty against Victoria continued from page 50

On Tuesday night the Coquitlam club had no trouble finding the back of the net against the Victoria Grizzlies at the Bear Mountain Arena, a game the Express won 7-3. Coquitlam outshot their opponents 52-36 and got on the board early with a first period goal from Mitchell Fyffe on a feed from Shaw. C o q u i t l a m ’ s A l e x a n d e r Ke r f o o t continued to rack up points with two goals in the middle frame, while teammates Justin Georgeson and Shaw each netted singles to make it 5-1 going into the third period. Goals from Victoria’s Jaden Schmeisser and Chase Kaiser were not enough to spark the home team and the Express went on to notch two more to win their 36th game of the season. Both Kerfoot, Shaw and Clinton Atkinson had three point games and a lone goal from

Petan on Tuesday helped him move up the league p o i n t leader KERFOOT l i s t , where he now sits at fifth in the BCHL. T he Express currently sits fourth in the Coastal Conference with a secured playoff berth. However, with Cowichan Valley and Powell River each holding games in hand, it will be difficult for Coquitlam to move up the standings. It is likely that the team could f aceof f against the Coastal Conference leading Surrey Eagles in the first round of the playoffs, which are expected to begin next week. Coquitlam will play their last game of the regular season on Friday against Chilliwack at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Centre. For more information go to www.bchl.ca. sports@tricitynews.com

he fishing I did last week with my comments on tippet netted a few strikes. In answer to some of my responses I concede that there is a place for tippet in the gear of some anglers. Since tippet is a component of the many styles of fishing leaders I personally would be more accepting of its name if it were used as a prefix, for example the leader tippet. By calling this product leader tippet instead of just tippet I feel the terminology would make the product self explanatory and easier to understand for novice anglers. The next term is strike indica-

when both products come off the same roll in the same factory? Further more, why does the price vary for the same product with the same tensile (pull before breaking) strength depending on packaging label? Generally both dacron trolling line and backing are made in the standard black and white — change the color and the price goes up. Personally, I question why one would pay the extra expense for the exotic colored backing when it makes no difference to the fish.

THE REPORT

Fishing on our Lower Mainland lakes is fair to good. As I write this the sun is finally making a reappearance. Now that March is here and the days are getting longer our lake fishing should steadily improve toward high season expectations.

Fishing close to shore along the north-east sections of your favourite lake should help. Try: chironomid, bloodworm, coachman, Zulu, American coachman, professor, wooly bugger, micro leach, sixpack, halfback, doc spratley or baggy shrimp. The Fraser River back waters are fishing to good for cutthroat. For cutthroat try: eggo, egg and eye alevin, rolled muddler, tied down minnow, mickey finn, stonefly nymph, chez nymph or American coachman. The Stave River is good for steelhead and cutthroat. For steelhead try: polar shrimp, squamish poacher, big black, flat black, popsicle, Kaufmann black stone, eggo, Thor or steelhead spratley. The Harrison River is good for cutthroat. The Chehalis River is good for steelhead and cutthroat. The Vedder is good for steelhead.

CHMELYK, Rose March 7, 1927 - March 3, 2012 Rose passed away peacefully on March 3, 2012. Rose was born in Spedden, Northern Alberta. She grew up with her five brothers and four sisters on a homestead farm near Vilna. She married Nicholas Chmelyk in 1946. Rose and Nick, along with Nick’s brothers, moved to the North Peace area to pioneer vast grain farms near Cecil Lake, B.C. Daughter Judy and son James were born during this period. In 1955, tired of the unpredictability of farming life, they moved to Coquitlam. Nick found a long-term job at Fraser Mills in Maillardville. Son Gerald and daughter Sherry were born soon after. Nick and Rose separated in 1969. She lived for a number of years in New Westminster, working for a Ukrainian restaurant and at Monarch Foods. She then relocated to Edmonton to be closer to her siblings and worked at McGavin Bread. In the 1990’s, she moved to the Surrey/Langley area. Then due to declining health, she went to Kelowna to be under Sherry’s care. Rose had innumerable friends; she touched many with her straight talk and passion for life. She danced at the Kennedy Hall in Whalley and the Legions in New Westminster, Coquitlam, Edmonton, Cloverdale and Langley. Rose was predeceased by daughter Judy in 1970. Rose is survived by daughter Sherry (Mike), sons James (Yolanda) and Gerald (Faye), granddaughter Julia (Jon), grandsons Jerry (Erika), Jamie (Mandy), Chris (Kaysee), Dan (Delaine), Mitchell and Nick, great-granddaughter Sophia, great-grandsons Jeron, Seth, Lukas and Carson. A private family gathering will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Alzheimer’s Society of B.C.

FORREST, Nellie Irene (Coyle) Dec 3, 1916 - Feb 22, 2012 Born in Okotoks, Alberta, grew up in Calgary. Lived 68 years at the Pitt River family home in Port Coquitlam, B.C.

MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR Welcome to Port Moody, home of the Port Moody Canadian Film Festival. The Festival, now in its twelfth year, is certainly a highlight in Port Moody’s annual line-up of outstanding festivals. This event gives residents and visitors an opportunity to come together and celebrate their love of film. The Film Festival is organized by the Port Moody Film Society who also present monthly films at Inlet Theatre. I’m proud of the Port Moody Film Society, its dedicated volunteers, and the help of generous sponsors, who put on this festival year after year. I hope you enjoy this opportunity to watch great Canadian films, unique shorts, and the chance to meet some of the filmmakers that bring us such outstanding entertainment. If you are new to the Festival, you are in for a treat. Sit back, relax and relish in the amazing talent of Canadians in the film industry. On behalf of the City of Port Moody welcome to the 12th annual Port Moody Canada Film Festival. Best wishes for another successful year.

Mayor Mike Clay City of Port Moody

MESSAGE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR On behalf of the Port Moody Film Society it’s my pleasure to welcome you to the 12th Annual Port Moody Canadian Film Festival. Fifteen months in the making, this year’s lineup represents some of the most celebrated films of the year. No fewer than 26 Genie nominations (Canada’s Oscars) and even a couple of Oscar nominations attest to the excellence in our program. But mostly these movies are just plain entertaining. SISTERS AND BROTHERS will start you laughing. MONSIEUR LAZHAR will move you. GOOD NEIGHBOURS will get you cringing. PINK RIBBONS, INC. will have you questioning. THE WHISTLEBLOWER will make you angry. BARNEY’S VERSION will leave you reflecting on life. Canadian films continue to engage audiences at every level. I know you’ll be as entertained as I am with our selections. The shorts are great too, as we welcome emerging film makers to show their work. Many are attending with their films to share the experience in Q and A’s with you. A word of thanks to our film partners, our friends of the festival, our tireless volunteers and the City of Port Moody for their immeasurable support. Canadian cinema continues to get better and better. Your support continues to grow. Our Festival celebrates all of this. So thanks for attending and on with the show! Brad Williams Artistic Director, Port Moody Canadian Film Festival
