MAY DAY & MOMS It was a Mother’s Day breakfast in Lions Park on Sunday but Nathan and Mary-Ann Aldridge’s young sons, Riley and Tristan, displayed their love for both mom and dad on their shirts. The breakfast was just one of several May Day events in Port Coquitlam. For more May Day photos, please see page 16. STEVE SMITH PHOTO
PoCo pair up on 64 fraud charges Two Port Coquitlam residents are facing 64 counts of credit card fraud after North Vancouver RCMP arrested the pair last week. Tara Maria Zerr, 38, and Jason Scott White, 37, are accused of using stolen credit cards to make numerous purchases at retail outlets across the North Shore. Some of the businesses included Future Shop, Mark’s Work Warehouse, Shoppers Drug Mart, Cineplex Odeon and Save-On Foods. The cards were also allegedly used to make ATM withdrawals totalling more than $30,000. see CREDIT CARD CARD,, page 14
Street changes for Evergreen Pinetree, others to be more pedestrian-friendly By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Big changes are planned for three of Coquitlam’s busiest streets with the coming of the Evergreen Line. Using the Canada Line as a model, Coquitlam
city staff on Monday showed the first of many examples of how North and Clarke roads and Pinetree Way will look when the rapid transit line is built in four years. At Monday’s councilin-committee meeting, Ian Radnidge, manager of the Evergreen Line project, described how the three main streets that are to carry the elevated portions of the
rapid transit line will be transformed into more pedestrian- and cyclistfriendly zones, and how cars and public transit will flow around the Burquitlam and City Centre stations. The drawings show tree-lined streets with extra on-street parking, landscaping, curb bulges, more lighting and wide sidewalks for pedestrians and cyclists
More Coquitlam news: A new tower (pg. 7) & shark fins (pg. 8) to access Evergreen Line easily. As well, there will be multi-use paths under the guideways and, for drivers, more turning bays and better signals. Radnidge also touched on Coquitlam Centre’s plans for future com-
mercial buildings on its property on the west side of Pinetree (a representative of Morguard Investments, which manages the mall, was not available for comment). see EVERGREEN EVERGREEN,, page 6

The Man in Motion, Rick Hansen, is shown tackling Thermal Hill for the 20th anniversary of his first ascent of the killer climb from Port Moody to Coquitlam. He’ll take on the route (left) again on Friday, and will be joined by hundreds of school children and well-wishers.
‘We’ll all be doing this together,’ Hansen says of Thermal climb By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
hen Rick Hansen thinks about climbing Thermal Drive — the steepest hill on his global Man in Motion tour 25 years ago — he pictures it in stages. From the bottom at St. Johns Street, its northern point in Port Moody, there’s a relatively challenging grade along Moray Street — past Pinda Drive and Portview Place — before it levels out at Brookmount Avenue. From there, it’s a gentle hike to the four-way stop at Mohawk Avenue in Coquitlam, where the city’s sign commemorating the 1987 Man in Motion climb is posted, to get to the second stage. But the road past Pinecrest Avenue and Park Crescent is, by far, the most gruelling ascent, a struggle for even an elite athlete. The mount eventually eases to Baker Drive until the third stage rolls up to Robertson and Seymour drives, before Thermal levels out and winds its way to its southern point at Como Lake Avenue.
RICK ONLINE AT tricitynews.com • Visit www.tricitynews.com on Friday afternoon to view our stories, photos and videos of the Rick Hansen relay through the Tri-Cities — including Hansen’s ascent of Thermal Drive. To drive the 1.9-km route takes several minutes. Hansen hopes to complete the trek — or at least a good portion of it, from Mohawk to Seymour, rising to 532.4 ft above sea level — in under 30 minutes in his wheelchair, a feat that’s daunting to even the most able of body. Hansen made the decision to wheel the hill — just as he did for the Man in Motion 10th and 20th anniversaries — this past February when his national relay was in the prairies. Talking it over with his logistical team, there was no question Thermal would be part of the relay. The only question was: Would Hansen be up to taking on this hill for a fourth time? “I said, ‘Well, I don’t know if I can handle that. It’s quite a challenge,’” he recalled. “Five years ago, it was a
huge challenge and I was younger. “I think the most important thing to approach Thermal hill this time was be less about me wheeling the hill but, like the original tour, it’s an example and metaphor of how challenging and how rewarding and how significant the 25th has been, and the Man in Motion theme being applied at Thermal,” he said. Since his crossCanada venture started on Aug. 24, 2011 in Cape Spear, NL, more than 7,000 Canadian “difference makers” have carried the Rick Hansen medal over the 12,000 km route, passing through 600 communities and raising awareness and cash for spinal cord research. The Tri-Cities’ portion starts tomorrow (Thursday) when the relay travels over the Pitt River bridge, through
Port Coquitlam and ends at Coquitlam’s Spirit Square (behind city hall) for a public party. On Friday, Day 269 begins at Coquitlam’s Spirit Square and continues to Rocky Point Park in Port Moody before looping back to Thermal Drive. There, at around 10:15 a.m., it is expected hundreds of school children and well-wishers will line or climb the hill with Hansen; those who walk with him can wear the “I Survived Thermal” banner proudly, Hansen said. “In that spirit of it, I’m incredibly excited because we’ll have our relay participants, the medal bearers, members of our foundation team, youth and community members,” he said. “We’ll all be doing this together and, for me, that’s so appropriate for the 25th.” He added, “I’m approaching it with a sense of gratitude because the community is embracing this.” Still, though he can count on the energy and enthusiasm to buoy him on climb day, he has also had four months of physical preparation
ES OM WH PEN O O SH
WHERE YOU LIVE
to tackle it. Hansen has been wheeling regularly on the relay and even has stationary rollers on which to train. He’ll try to get a good sleep the night before — “though that’s a little challenging because of the anticipation and excitement — I’ll be pretty pumped up,” he said — and he’ll eat a sensible breakfast on Friday. Water is key to keep fluid levels up, too, he said. As for his advanced age of 54 and whether he’ll be thinking like a 29-year-old again at the start line, Hansen said, “Life is about a journey and you take your past experiences with you but you become aware of who you are today and what your passions and limitations are, and you try to find that balance. “In my approach to the hill this time, my goal is to complete the journey successfully but not break a world record. The hill seems insurmountable but the only way you do it is you put your hands on the wheels and you push hard — one stroke at a time.” firstname.lastname@example.org

PoCo: 2.97% tax hike set for 2012 By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Port Coquitlam homeowners can expect a 2.97% property tax increase this year after city council approved the final reading of its budget Monday. Councillors said putting together this yearâ€™s financial plan was a difficult task, as the city worked to maintain services while keeping the tax rate low. â€œThe budget process was certainly trying to council as well as staff,â€? said Coun. Mike Forrest, â€œbut I believe that we have heard from the people that 5%, 6% increases are not sustainable.â€? Coun. Michael Wright noted that each year, the process seems to get more difficult, and encouraged more residents to participate in next yearâ€™s budget process. The financial plan that was approved at Mondayâ€™s council meeting includes money for a new turf field, playground and trail improvements as well as upgrades to the cityâ€™s cemetery. There are also funds set aside for environmental initiatives that include waste source separation in city parks.
PoCo Foundation Eleven people have been appointed to the board of the new Port Coquitlam Community Foundation, an organization that will manage and distribute funds for initiatives and programs that benefit the city. Port Coquitlamâ€™s budget, which was approved Monday night, includes $35,000 in matching grant funding for start-up assistance for the new group. Coun. Michael Wright, who spearheaded the project, said the foundation will give the community an opportunity to donate money for local initiatives. â€œMoney donated to the foundation will be tax-deductible,â€? he said. â€œPeople who donâ€™t want to pay more taxes or donate to the city will feel better about donating to a foundation, where their funds are used for projects that enhance the community.â€? The new board was appointed Monday and is expected to hold its first meeting on June 13 to elect positions and establish plans for the launch of the foundation and future fundraising efforts. The inaugural board is: Dave Allen, Ron Csermak, Janine Davies, John Diack, Clayton Derochie, Johanne Dumas, Roger Fast, Guy Lapierre, Margaret Owns, Tom Ramsay and Ingmar Wilkens. Wright is the 12th director and will serve as a city liaison. The foundation allows individuals and businesses to support their community through endowment funds that will fulfill a range of needs, from sports and fitness to arts and culture. Donors will also be able to direct their funds to individual community organizations through the foundation. email@example.com Coun. Darrell Penner did not vote for the budget. During third reading, he told his colleagues he was disappointed with the process
and said the current plan ignores some of the public safety concerns heard from residents. The original draft budget called for two
new police officers and three firefighters, spending items that were absent in the final revision of the document. Other changes from the first draft of the financial plan included the reduction for funds set aside for infrastructure replacement from $250,000 to $140,000. Funding for the Port Coquitlam Community Foundation was also reduced from $50,000 to $35,000 while cash

for the cityâ€™s Sports Alliance was cut in half, from $30,000 to $15,000. The changes dropped the 2012 rate increase from a proposed 4.77%, or about $90 for the owner of an average single-family home, to the current 2.97%, or about $55 per average home. A $41 utility fee increase, much of which is set by Metro Vancouver, did not change in the revised financial plan.

Amazing PoCo Trivia Fact #85
Did You Know? Marathon of Hope runner Terrence Stanley Fox was born July 28, 1958 in Winnipeg Manitoba.
But Radnidge did not mention in his presentation what the city intends to do with its vacant land along Pinetree nor was there discussion about park-and-ride locations or washrooms at stations — a topic that came up last year at city council. City council peppered Radnidge with a number of questions about the plans, including the need for pedestrian overpasses as well as adding components for the disabled. Coun. Selina Robinson, who chairs the city’s universal access-ability advisory committee, said council has been pressing developers building close to Evergreen stations to include adaptable units in their housing. As well, she suggested the city include bike sensors at intersections, as in Richmond, to give approaching cyclists priority. Radnidge said a number of refinements will happen as the plans progress to ensure the three corridors are “visually softened” as the area around the Evergreen Line builds out. Already, several proj-

A controversial plan to build a 33-storey tower in Coquitlam — on the Port Coquitlam border — will go to public hearing next month. At Monday’s meeting, city council unanimously granted first reading to rezone 1123 Westwood St., where the Onni Group wants to build a mixed-use highrise facing Lincoln Avenue and consisting of 239 residential units and four townhouses. As well, Onni is proposing a four-storey commercial building along Westwood on the one-acre property that used to be owned by the city, which sold it for $7 million. The plans have already generated significant feedback, includ-
ing from PoCo Mayor Greg Moore, who wrote in a letter to Coquitlam council of the “substantial and negative impact a development of this scale and character would have on our community.” Neighbours on both sides of the city border also have complained about the potential tree loss, higher density and increase in noise and traffic, especially as it filters onto the two-lane Westwood Street. “We have gotten more response than I think at this early stage than we have seen typically,” Coun. Neal Nicholson said. Mayor Richard Stewart said the proper ty, which will be within walking distance of the new Lincoln Station for the Evergreen Line, “ought

Coquitlam council this week banned shark fins from being possessed, traded, sold and distributed in the city. Council set the new public policy — without community consultation or a staff report — at Monday’s meeting after an hour-long debate that was filled with emotion and ended with Mayor Richard Stewart apologizing for implying the topic was frivolous. Coun. Mae Reid, who moved the motion, took offence at Stewart’s “condescending comments” after he questioned the deputy city manager about whether Coquitlam had the authority to stop shark fins from coming into Coquitlam. “It’s not our role,” Stewart said after John Dumont told council the ban would be seen as “more symbolic.” Earlier this month, Port Moody council banned shark fins, making it the first municipality in B.C. to order the prohibition; violators there face a $500 fine. The local action follows a petition organized by former Coquitlam city councillor and now New Westminster-Coquitlam NDP MP Fin Donnelly, who is asking the federal government to stop importing shark fins, which are considered a delicacy in some Chinese restaurants. “It’s a federal issue but it’s important that we support good decision-making at that level,” Coquitlam Coun. Selina Robinson said. firstname.lastname@example.org

Big box retailers concerns councillor Washington says effects of Walmart have still not been felt By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
A proposal to build another big box retail development along Lougheed Highway was met with criticism from one Port Coquitlam councillor during Mondayâ€™s meeting. Coun. Dean Washington said the city has not fully felt the effects of the recently opened Walmart in the Dominion Triangle and
said increased large-form at re tail space c o u l d put presWASHINGTON sure on the cityâ€™s downtown businesses. â€œI really do fear for many of our small businesses in the community,â€? he said. â€œTo bring similar companies to this area is concerning for me... I believe this could end up as a nowin situation for all involved.â€? The proposal before council is for a vacant former car dealership at Oxford Street and
Lougheed. If the application for a zoning change passes fourth reading, the property would change from a highway commercial designation to a large-format commercial zoning, and allow 20% of the floor space within the site for personal and health services. Coun. Mike Forrest
said he has reservations about the proposal. He was critical of a consultantâ€™s report, which said allowing personal and health services at the location would not have an impact on the downtown and northside business areas. â€œI really have difficulty with the statements made by the con-
sultant,â€? he said. â€œIt is almost as if the consultant had a foregone conclusion that they were after.â€? Forrest voted in favour of giving the proposal first and second, saying he wants the process to continue to the public consultation period so he can hear what residents think.

ree cradle-to-grave public education would be a great idea if we could afford it. Education is expensive and, in some cases, students should be expected to pay for it. No one would quibble about the benefits of free public K-to12 education and post-secondary school should be subsidized to guarantee a well-educated and skilled work force. But there may be times when free tuition doesn’t accomplish the goals set out by the citizens who have to pay for it and, after experimenting with the Education Guarantee, the B.C. government has figured this out. After four years of providing free tuition to graduated adults seeking to upgrade their high school education, the province is now whittling down the number of courses it will offer at no charge. More specifically, the province has determined that it will only pay for literacy, math and competency courses for students learning English as a second language and English 12, Biology 12, Math 11 and 12, Chemistry 11 and Physics 11. The idea is that these are the courses that are most sought after by students seeking to upgrade their education. Students who wish to take history, law or accounting, which could be seen more as electives than core academics, will now have to pay for them. The province has also moved to withhold partial funding unless courses are completed, and while we don’t know all the details — and there could be some costly fine print for school districts unless attention is paid to this issue — the principle is sound. Taxpayers should only pay for courses that people sign up for and complete. Adding English 11, Communications 11 and 12, Physics 12, and Chemistry 12 to the list of free core courses is also a good idea because they, too, are needed for university or college. But until educators are prepared to work for free, adult students will have to contribute in some way to their own education.
Ferry fleet sails into financial & political storm BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA
he B.C. government has rolled out its plan to reform BC Ferries, continuing the structural and cultural shift that started when the Crown corporation was quasi-privatized in the early years of BC Liberal rule. Politically, there is a lot at stake here. Premier Christy Clark’s year-long “families first” routine boils down to two projects: reining in rate increases at BC Hydro and BC Ferries. For weeks, Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom has been signalling there is bad news to come. Sparring with the NDP in question period, he has bluntly and repeatedly said the days of fully staffed vessels sailing with a third (or less) of their capacity are coming to an end. Tabling legislation to give the ferry com-
missioner new powers over service levels as well as fares, Lekstrom revealed $80 million worth of sugar to help the tough medicine go down over the next four years (that’s on top of the $150 million annual subsidy). Quadra Island politician Jim Abram was first out with the predictable view of the Gulf Islands elite, dismissing this sum as paltry. It’s difficult to capture how self-centred and insulting this is but I’ll try. Consider that the B.C. transportation ministry spent $460 million last year on highway operations — that’s for the province’s entire vast, weather-battered road network. This year’s operating subsidy to coastal ferries is approaching $200 million, nearly half of that. And increasingly, the money goes to subsidize getaways for those who choose isolation for its own sake. Basic financial information also exposes the falsity of NDP ferry critic Garry Coons’ one-note critique. Ferries are part of the highway system, he constantly says, comparing empty boats with empty roads while ig-

noring the mandatory ferry staff and other costs. This fiscal-fantasy policy implies another huge increase in subsidy, much of it a transfer from working people to the idle rich who can afford Gulf Islands real estate. Coons can’t say how much, probably because he has no idea. A key legislative change will allow BC Ferries to use revenues from its profitable main routes to subsidize little-used runs. This would be even more important if those revenues hadn’t been squandered. And, no, I’m not talking about the “fast ferries.” The story is detailed in Head On!, a 2004 book by former B.C. deputy highways minister R.G. Harvey. He describes how the Mike Harcourt government completed the “gross error” of building a new terminal at Duke Point, near Nanaimo. This run was to take truck and other traffic from congested Horseshoe Bay to the mid-Island from Tsawwassen. An alternative route from Richmond to Gabriola Island, with bridges to Vancouver Island, had been
quietly scuttled after the W.A.C. Bennett government was defeated by the NDP’s Dave Barrett in 1972. On a map, it’s clear this would have been the shortest route. Harvey says it would have cut travel time by half and likely replaced the congested Horseshoe Bay dock. But Barrett would have had to tell his Nanaimo ferry union supporters that they were losing half their work hours. Tsawwassen to Duke Point is 65 km, compared to 54 km from Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay. A ferry worker’s shift includes two round trips and loading time. On the Duke Point run, this meant at least eight and a half hours, “thus ensuring the crew at least one hour at double time daily and often more,” Harvey writes. “Later, it became a scheduled overtime route.” This is something to keep in mind as Adrian Dix and his crew of union bosses prepare to take the helm in Victoria.

New system of gov’t needed The Editor, Re. “Better ways to run town hall meeting” (Letters, The Tri-City News, May 4). Letter writer Helen Brown raised several concerns regarding the town hall meeting staged for Coquitlam’s mayor and some councillors to receive some residents’ concerns. I see terrible flaws in our political system across the country and politicians and the media take little interest. I designed a community
governance system for equity and sustainability 20 years ago. It was delivered to every municipal government in Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, and to the provincial government and the media. All of these groups are so caught up in their daily routine, this changing of governance is hardly on their radar. For those of you who would like to see how our governance system could change for more equity and sustainability it is now posted on

It calls for re-mapping of our municipal boundaries, designating community wards with community councils (which could host meetings for all levels of governance), establishing neighbourhoods within the communities to help people identify with a part of their city. All politicians’ positions would be based on the number of residents: MP, 250,000 people; MLA, 150,000; mayor, 500,000; councillor, 50,000; Metro
Vancouver director, 50,000; parks director, 50,000; health board director, 50,000; etc. This would be a great challenge for upcoming political science students to design and simulate. It would take a big conference and many workshops to fine tune. But, hey, if it could help keep our world liveable, it might be worth trying. I’m afraid of what happens if we carry on the same.

Driver rear-ended by gangster gets $130K By Gary McKenna
from Ms. Zawislak and the lay witnesses establishes t h a t KARBOVANEC there has been a dramatic change in Ms. Zawislakâ€™s physical abilities and energy before and after the accident.â€? The defendants, which included Coquitlamâ€™s Four Star Auto Lease Ltd., conceded that Zawislak was hurt in the collision but argued that she was exaggerating her injuries. Gerow disa g reed, stating she believed witnesses, including Zawislakâ€™s co-worker, who testified that the plaintiff struggled with certain aspects of her job after the accident. She was awarded $60,000 in non-pecuniary damages, $55,000 in past and future lost income, $10,000 for future costs of care, $2,974 in past loss of income and $2,450 in
THE TRI-CITY NEWS
A woman who was rear-ended by notorious Red Scorpion gang member Dennis Karbovanec in 2009 has received more than $130,000 in damages as a result of her injuries. Janice Zawislak, who was an employee at North Fraser Pre-trial Centre, was driving to Home Depot in Port Coquitlam when her vehicle was struck from behind at the intersection of Lougheed Highway and Coast Meridian. According to court documents released this week, Zawislak said she suffered headaches, neck and shoulder pain as a result of the collision. â€œIn my view, there is a significant temporal connection between the accident and the ongoing symptoms that Ms. Zawislak has suffered,â€? Justice Laura Gerow wrote in her reasons for judgment. â€œThe evidence

special damages. The same year as the accident, the Port Moody Police Department took the unusual step of notifying the community that Karbovanec and gang associate Jon Bacon were residing in the area. At the time, police told the media the two were targets for retaliation from gang rivals and that anyone that interacted with the pair were in danger. Police officers followed the two men 24 hours a day for several months â€” even parking marked cars outside their condos when they were at home â€” until Karbovanec pleaded guilty to three counts of second-degree murder and was sentenced to a minimum of 15 years in prison for his role in the Surrey Six murder case, the October 2007 executions of six men, including two innocent bystanders. Last August, Bacon was murdered in a brazen public shooting in Kelowna.
Several injured in Lougheed pile up By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Several people are recovering with broken bones and minor injuries after a six car pileup along the Riverview Hospital stretch of the Lougheed Highway last Thursday. The accident occurred shortly after 2 p.m. May 10 after one vehicle struck another, causing a chain reaction that led to the closure of parts of the highway. One person was airlifted to hospital but RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said all of the victims were expected to recover. â€œThe injuries looked bad at the scene but when the person got
to the hospital, it was not as serious as we originally thought,â€? he said. â€œThe investigation continues and we are analysing all the information that we have.â€? He said a couple of witnesses have contacted police since the accident occurred last week and investigators are still trying to piece together what happened. Chung said alcohol was not a factor in the collision.

Commission sues former Abby doctor BLACK PRESS
on May 1, the BCSC says Swanney made a payment of just over $11,500 on April 2 of this year but still owes the remainder as well as almost $14,000 in interest. Swanney was a director of Specialized Surgical Services Inc. in 2002 when the BCSC said that he and another director permitted the company to make misrepresentations in two offering memorandums. A BCSC panel found that Swanney was the â€œkey participantâ€? in causing an investor in the proposed hospital to pay $50,000 for shares that were worth only $7,500 at the time.
The BC Securities Commission (BCSC) is suing a for mer Abbotsford doctor for more than $37,000 in penalties he was issued in 2002 relating to a TriCity business. James Swanney was ordered to pay an administrative penalty of $35,000 in November 2002 after the BCSC banned him from the capital markets for 15 years for defrauding an investor involved in a proposed private surgical hospital in Coquitlam. According to a notice of civil claim filed in B.C. Supreme Court
Swanney was prohibited from acting as a director or officer of any company for at least 15 years. In a separate matter, Swanney went to trial and was acquitted in 2006 of criminal negligence in the 2000 death of a patient, 20-year-old Christena Constible of Abbotsford. A coronerâ€™s inquest concluded Constible died of respiratory failure due to a combination of prescription drugs. The BC College of Physicians and Surgeons suspended Swanneyâ€™s licence in 2003 amd fined him $13,500.
Credit card collecting continued from front page
The North Vancouver RCMP began receiving numerous complaints of vehicle thefts occurring at parks and hiking locations between March 11 and April 14. Police said that credit cards allegedly stolen from the vehicles were used to make the fraudulent purchases. â€œThese arrests are significant in helping to keep our streets and communities safe,â€? said North Vancouver RCMP Cpl. Richard De Jong. â€œThis investigation shows well the multi-jurisdictional efforts the police utilize in fighting crime in the Lower Mainland.â€?

The City of Coquitlam has submitted an application to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch for a Food Primary Liquor Licence with Patron Participation Entertainment Endorsement (in the form of dancing and sing-alongs) for the Glen Pine Pavilion (1200 Glen Pine Court, Coquitlam), which the City operates as an â€œover 50â€? seniorsâ€™ facility. As part of the liquor licence for the upper level of the facility (which is a dining and banquet space), the City is seeking a Patron Participation Entertainment Endorsement in order to allow for dancing, and on occasion, sing-alongs, to take place during special events. The Patron Participation Entertainment Endorsement, if allowed, would apply during licensed hours only, which would end at midnight. Special Event liquor licences have been granted for the Glen Pine Pavilion on a number of occasions in the past by the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch. If approved, this application would result in the City no longer having to apply for temporary â€œSpecial Eventâ€? licences on a case-by-case basis. In accordance with City policy, you are now being invited to provide input to Council with respect to the Cityâ€™s request to include Patron Participation Entertainment Endorsement as part of the Food Primary Liquor Licence for Glen Pine Pavilion. The City of Coquitlam will be receiving the input requested herein up to Friday, June 1, 2012.

Plan now or pay later By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Graduating high school students will have fewer free options for upgrading their education for post-secondary entrance once they turn 19 and should start planning now to avoid hefty tuition fees. The province is no longer paying tuition fees for graduated adults to upgrade their education except for English 12, Biology 12, Math 11 and 12, Chemistry 11 and Physics 11. To enrol in any other high school credit courses, graduated adults will have to pay tuition of about $400. School age and non-graduated adults will continue to be funded in all high school credit courses.
Graduated young adults get a break until they turn 19 but, after that, they will have to pay tuition fees for courses other than those listed. Planning now will be critical for high school grads looking to upgrade their education, said School District 43â€™s continuing education principal. Sarah Husband said students should be making â€œinformed decisionsâ€? if they want to avoid paying fees. But Literacy Foundation Courses, mostly in English, math and science competency, which many new English speakers take, will still be free under the Education Guarantee. The Ministry of Education changes are an effort to make sure education â€œdollars are well spent,â€? Husband said.
SECURITY SCREEN DOORS No Bars, No Grills Just security with a clear view
B u t t h e B C Te a ch e r s â€™ Federation said the change will be particularly onerous for impoverished students and some adult students in other districts have expressed concerns about having to pay for courses that were tuition-free for about four years. In SD43, Husband said, the effect is negligible because there arenâ€™t many graduated adults taking academic upg rading courses beyond the courses that will remain funded. Only about 23 people are currently enrolled in Physics 12, which doesnâ€™t qualify for free tuition, and a handful of other graduated adults are enrolled in other courses that are no longer free. email@example.com

Books can help you de-clutter your home A GOOD READ Lori Nick
to keep sports schedules, notices, etc. neatly tucked away. I can now find important papers quickly. I also used to stuff recipes into a cupboard after I had printed them out from the Internet. I would open the cupboard to a landslide of muffin, soup and pasta recipes. I now have a binder to hold them. More organizing ideas can be found in the book Real Simple: The Organized Home. Professional organizer Laura Wittman n is a selfprofessed “organization junkie.” She has written Clutter Rehab, a book that lists 101 of her favourite organization tips and tricks. Tip #10 advises people to take pictures of sentimental clutter. Wittman says, “The biggest reason that we hang onto stuff is the memories attached to the item.” Wittman recommends keeping memories alive with photographs of sentimental items. Another good tip is #50: If you haven’t used something in a year, get rid of it. She recommends placing a dot or sticky note on items
pring always puts me in a clutterbusting mood — out with the old and in with the new! There are many good books written by professional organizers that can help you to de-clutter and organize your home. Author and life coach Gail Blanke e has written a very useful book entitled Throw out Fifty Things: Clear the Clutter, Find Your Life. She guides you room by room and gives tips and examples of how she has de-cluttered her own house. Blanke advises you to get rid of both physical and emotional clutter that can drag people down. For example, she recommends getting rid of outdated medication. Blanke believes that “surrounding ourselves with a lot of old medicines is negative, robs energy and may even warm the way for those old ailments to remake their homes in our bodies.” I
took Blanke’s advice and brought a large bag of expired vitamins as well as prescription and nonprescription medicine to my local pharmacy, where they disposed of it in an environmentally friendly way. The magazine Real Simple has some excellent organizational ideas. For example, I used to have disorganized piles of papers for each member of the family. Real Simple recommends purchasing binders to organize papers. I bought and labelled a binder for each of member of my family, inserting clear plastic page holders
that you aren’t sure anyone is using and write the date on a calendar. If the item is used, remove the dot or note. If the dotted item is still in the same place one year later, get rid of it. This same trick can be used to weed out a full closet — place stickers on clothes, and remove them when they are worn. At the end of a season, donate the clothes that still have stickers attached. I find it a struggle to organize my kitchen cupboards — particularly the cupboard that holds frying pans, pots and cookie sheets. Stacey Platt is a professional organizer who has written What’s a Disorganized Person to Do? It is a book with “317
professional organizing duo Susan Borax and Heather Knittell have written Good Riddance: Showing Clutter the Door. They approach the topic of de-cluttering with common sense and humour. They dare readers to “dream of a life minus the burden of CRUD: Completely Ridiculous Useless Debris.” They issue CRUD challenges that urge people to rid themselves of unneeded, outdated items. Some items on their hit list include: macramé, TV tables, plastic bags, old TV remotes, food containers, glass vases from florists, half-melted candles, knitted pot-holders, doilies, cracked china, dried
ideas, tips, projects and lists to unclutter your home and streamline your life.” To organize bakeware, Platt recommends stacking pans vertically. To divide a cabinet, she says to use rows of small, spring-tension curtain rods, or purchase dividers. To organize pot lids, she advises the installation of a pot lid rack, organizing the lids in baskets that can be easily pulled out of cupboards or putting them in a deep drawer. Platt’s book is full of helpful lists and colourful pictures of organized spaces that will inspire the reader to create neat and tidy spaces in their homes. Vancouver-based
flower arrangements, tiny bottles of shampoo, soap slivers and shoulder pads. The authors claim that “once these worthless items are removed, clutter will cease to cause chronic dissatisfaction with your living space.” More helpful tips include: “One in, one out” — i.e., if you buy an item that is a replacement for something you already own, get rid of the old one. Visit your library to find these and other books to help and inspire you to conquer your clutter. A Good Read is a column by Tri-City librarians that is published every Wednesday.

Celebrating 46 Years of Adventure at Camp Qwanoes For 46 years Camp Qwanoes has been inviting kids from a wide variety of backgrounds to leave the everyday behind, jump into adventure, and let friendship ﬁll each day!
kids,” shared Scott. “And our desire is to provide one unforgettable week. Our staff make such a difference – our campers love them!”
“Camp is a place where kids can try things that just don’t happen in everyday life,” says Scott Bayley, Executive Director. “And it’s all in a safe place. At Qwanoes kids can be kids, kids are valued and accepted, and fun is a big part of each day.”
“We are always looking for ways to add new adventures and make each week extra special. For example, this year we’re expanding our giant ﬂoating “Aqua Park” at our beach and introducing paddle surﬁng. A few summers ago we added a concrete skate park. Things like a ﬂoating super-slide, wakeboarding, rock wall climbing, a high ropes course, mountain boarding... we have about 75 activities in all.”
“Like racing a friend through the trees on parallel double zip lines! Or bouncing your friend high into the air off the blob. Or maybe just enjoying the stars at night with your cabin down at the dock.” Since 1966 kids have been experiencing these kind of adventures and a whole lot more at Qwanoes, located beside Maple Mountain on a quiet bay in Crofton. “We started 46 years ago with a few hundred kids. Now this summer we expect over 3,500... from all across Vancouver Island, Greater Vancouver, and even beyond.” “Our staff come from all over. This summer we’ll welcome staff from about 12 countries and many provinces across Canada.” Apparently Qwanoes has grown for 25 summers and campers return year after year. “We love

Summer weather is here and summer vacation isn’t far behind. And parents can encourage their children to investigate g reat reading this summer by joining Strange… But True?, the free 2012 summer reading club at Coquitlam Public Library. Regular reading during the summer helps kids to maintain or even improve their reading and literacy skills, and studies show that voluntary reading is the number one factor in establishing good reading habits. Summer reading club makes reading fun and the expert staff at Coquitlam Public Library can help your child find the right book or magazine. Registration begins June 4 at both libraries and participants will receive a free reading record and bookmark as well as collect weekly stickers. Kids who complete their reading records will receive special Summer Reading Club medal. As well, CPL will host
fun free programs and displays all summer. The Strange... But True? kick-off party is set for Saturday, June 23, when kids can register for their reading packages and discover the world of Mad Science, whose instructors will wow them with cool experiments. Poirier branch registration will take place from 10 to 10:30 a.m., with the show running from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex (633 Poirier St.). City Centre registration will take place from 2 to 2:30 p.m., with the Mad Science show running from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in council chambers at Coquitlam city hall (3000 Guildford Way). The summer reading club is sponsored by the BC Library Association with funding assistance from Libraries and Literacy, Ministry of Education. For more information, visit www.library. coquitlam.bc.ca or www. kidssrc.ca. email@example.com

STOP SUMMER LEARNING LOSS Don’t let your child fall behind this summer. The summer brain drain means that without intervention, the achievement gap between successful and struggling students widens in the summer. Students who are already struggling or have learning challenges are at the most risk. While studies have shown students lose 2.6 months of math learning, literacy is the most affected by the summer break in learning. In contrast, if students focus on developing their skills over the summer months they can actually gain ground and feel more conﬁdent when they go back in September.

A new exhibit at Port Coquitlam’s Leigh Square aims to debunk those myths by showcasing the talent and inspiration behind artworks by a wide variety of artists with a range of disabilities. Coquitlam’s Lelainia Lloyd was a full-time artist and teacher when she lost the feeling in her hands five years ago. In 2008 she learned it was multiple sclerosis; the disease had damaged her spinal cord and caused her to lose feeling in other areas of her body as well. Her work had included intricate, handquilted textiles and mixed-media works combining paint and collage elements. Lloyd also created design work for art companies around the world and taught mixed-media art courses. “Being an artist and losing the feeling in your hands is quite devastating,” said Lloyd. “I struggled with the dexterity I needed for the works I had been doing all along.” But Lloyd persevered, learning how to use her hands all over again. She can’t feel what’s in her hands, but relies on her brain to register what her hands are doing based on what she sees. About a year ago she took a digital photography class, and everything changed. “I started off on a really cheap point-andshoot camera that does all the work for you,” Lloyd said. In the process, however, Lloyd discovered a new world of artistic possibilities that she hadn’t previously considered when snapping family photos. She took more classes, one after another, finding new inspiration with each step. A few months in she started experimenting with a digital SLR camera and hasn’t looked back. “I’ve really fallen in love with the medium,” she said. “Photography has really opened new doors for me.” Lloyd is showing a collection of her photos in Leigh Square’s exhibit Challenging the Myths: Arts & Disability. The show honours Rick Hansen’s 25th anniversary relay through Port Coquitlam. Ironically, when Lloyd looked back at her earlier photos she noticed many of them featured her hands. “I’d been so angry... but when I started looking at my pictures it gave me a different appreciation of my body,” Lloyd said. “I realized that even though my hands aren’t compatible with doing everything I used to do before the damage from MS, they still serve me in a lot of ways I’m grateful for. “Photography gave me a deeper appreciation of my hands, and a way to see myself through a different lens.” Two of the photos Lloyd is showing demonstrate the way she digitally manipulates photographs, often layering several together. Some pieces are drawn from pictures of her earlier paintings, giving Lloyd a chance to mix her old and new artistic worlds.
Work by artists with disabilities is on display at Port Coquitlam’s Leigh Square to recognize the 25th anniversary of Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion tour. Among them are pieces by Coquitlam resident Lelainia Lloyd (left and below left) and Aiden Fisher-Lang (below right). COURTESY OF CITY OF POCO
“I’ve been able to take the skills and ability I have, and translate it into a new medium in a way other people aren’t,” Lloyd said. It’s a process that has also played out in the lives of other artists with disabilities. In 1993 Kevin Priebe was 18 years old, an athletic high school student riding his bike home from school before a rugby game, when he was struck by a car and made a
paraplegic. The Maple Ridge resident later found work in the film industry, crafting special effects and prosthetic props, and discovered a talent for figurative sculpture. “I made my own seats quite a long time ago to make it possible for me to work, and it’s really helped me move forward,” Priebe said.
For the Leigh Square exhibit Priebe is showing a sit-ski he built last year, as well as a 20-minute video detailing how he got into crafting adaptive seating products. Priebe, who is an ambassador for the Rick Hansen Foundation, is also taking part in the medal relay through Maple Ridge. “When you have a [spinal cord] injury art is a main part of your rehabilitation, and so are sports,” Priebe said. “Part of getting well again is you gotta express yourself.” Challenging the Myths also features art by Marney Smithies, works by artists in the Cascadia Society for people with Down’s syndrome as well as art by New View Society members. • Challenging the Myths: Arts & Disability is at Leigh Square until June 11. The opening reception, with artists in attendance, is tomorrow (Thursday) at 4 p.m. to coincide with Port Coquitlam’s Rick Hansen relay day. email@example.com

Vancouver Opera’s Wright makes opera relevant today By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Several years ago, James Wright woke up from a night’s sleep and realized Vancouver Opera’s next production of The Magic Flutee had to be told through the west coast First Nations’ perspective. T h e c o m p a ny, o f which Wright is the general director, spent almost three years in research to mount the opera in 2007 — 216 years after Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote it. “We be g an very slowly and carefully,” Wright recalled. “We knew that we could not do this without an incredible partnership with First Nation people.” An advisory council was established and permission was granted from native bands to use some of their language in the show. As well, some of the original narrative was changed to reflect a deeper respect towards women than in Mozart’s piece. Part of that process also involved a lengthy marketing campaign, an outreach program that Wright calls “community engagement strategies,” to bring Vancouver Opera closer to the general public. A series of talks, called Where Cultures Meet, with the First P e o p l e ’s H e r i t a g e, Language and Culture Council explored such topics as cultural appropriation and intellectual property in the arts, and the production toured B.C. and into schools, including schools on Indian reserves. The lectures, forums and perfor mances a ro u n d Th e M a g i c Flute, which will be remounted by Vancouver Opera next season, will be the subject of Wright’s PowerPoint presentation at Place des Arts in Coquitlam tomorrow (Thursday). And he’ll also speak about the company’s past community work such as the successful 2010 Canadian premiere of Nixon in China — d u r i n g Va n c o u v e r Opera’s golden anniversary season — and the 2004 production of Madama Butterfly. F o r t h e f o r m e r, Wright interviewed many retired diplomats — including for mer senator Jack Austin, who was appointed by then-prime minister Pierre Trudeau to represent B.C. — as well as staff from the AsiaPacific Foundation and UBC Asian Studies to put together a series of programs about US-

Trudeau’s son, Alexandre, also came out to speak about his father’s book and Margaret McMillian, author off Nix on in China, did a reading. As well, the comprehensive series included music and dance performances and film screenings. Fo r A i d a i n t h e 2011/12 season, the outreach effort focused on women in wartime and
last year’s La Boheme posed the question: Who would Mimi be today? while the Madama Butterfl y series involved 22 events such as Japanese tea ceremonies and even a crossdressing performance from Toronto. “Usually, we don’t curate these things,” Wright said, with a laugh. “We put an invitation out to organizations and say, ‘This is our upcoming produc-
tion. If you have something to add to this conversation, come on in.’” Not all of its outreach forums are serious, he said. For its 2007/8 production of The Italian Girl in Algiers, a comedy, Vancouver Opera focused on Italian girls, Italian movie stars and Italian culture. “The point,” Wright said, “is to engage a wider community and some people that come [to the lectures] may or may not come to the opera. It’s more about placing us as a community resource, as some body in the Metro area that uses art to talk about other things.” • Tickets for James Wright’s presentation on Thursday, May 17 at 7 p.m. are $5, plus HST. Call 604-664-1636 or visit the Maillardville facility at 1122 Brunette Ave., Coquitlam. Wright concludes the Place des Arts’ salon speaker series for this season. firstname.lastname@example.org

Student banners line PoCo streets
A collaboration between the city of Port Coquitlam and two schools has resulted in a flurry of colourful street banners — just in time for the national Rick Hansen Relay that will pass through downtown tomorrow (Thursday). Students from Riverside secondary and Kwayhquitlum middle schools produced a total of 48 designs for the city’s community banner program; the artwork was created alongside artist Diane Moran between February and April this year. Each piece was photographed and made into a digital file for the printing process, which involved using environmentally friendly waterbased dispersed dye inks. All 160 banners — including four designs made by the Friends of the Leigh Square Society — were installed last week and, in keeping with the city’s green initiatives, the old banners will be recycled and made into shopping bags and other objects by non-profit groups, a city spokesperson said. The banners will be up for a year along Shaughnessy Street, Maple Street, Elgin Ave, Donald Street, Leigh Square Community Arts Village and Coast Meridian Road (by Prairie Avenue and McAllister Street) as well as at PoCo recreation complex and Hyde Creek rec centre. Next year, new designs will be printed for the city’s centennial.

Big brawl ‘shocking’ in Int. lax, says A’s VP By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS
The Internet video shows a good portion of Saturday’s brawl between the Coquitlam and Nanaimo Intermediate ‘A’ lacrosse teams. Only it doesn’t divulge exactly who and what ignited it. The game was called after a wild secondperiod, bench-clearing donnybrook occurred with Coquitlam holding a commanding 15-4 lead over the host islanders. “The unfortunate part of the video is it doesn’t give whole clips of the timeline and how it was precipitated,” Garrett Ungaro, vice-president of the Adanacs Junior and Intermediate teams, told The Tri-City News on the phone Tuesday. Ungaro called the fight “shocking to say the least,” especially featuring a pair of teams that house elite players aged 16 and 17. “ I n t e r m e d i at e ‘A’ ball is a very skilled and competitive level,” Ungaro said. “If those [brawls] were to happen, I would have guessed they would have at a lower-calibre [of play].” Ungaro said given the lopsided score in Coquitlam’s favour at the time of the rhubard, the reports he’s received are that “a very frustrated Nanaimo team” took liberties to try to make amends. The B.C. Lacrosse Association investigated the incident and, later Tuesday, the Nanaimo Daily News reported B.C. Intermediate ‘A’ league commissioner Gene Regier came down hard on both teams and handed out a total of 15 suspensions, although he wouldn’t disclose to whom exactly and for how long.
The Gleneagle Talons’ Veronica Robbins gallops through a pack of players during Thursday’s Fraser Valley high school girls rugby championship game in Cloverdale.
Talons tame Tweedsmuir in FV final By Larry Pruner Their strong legs and sharp thinking have taken the Gleneagle Talons to glorious heights with which the senior girls high school rugby team has grown so, so familiar. Their coach says one more component was particularly vital to the squad’s success in Thursday’s Fraser Valley final: Huge heart. The Talons’ Amy Leem was a prime example of it, out-willing her Lord Tweedsmuir Panther opponents to score a pair of tries and help give
Gleneagle a well-earned 17-5 triumph in Cloverdale and, remarkably, it’s 11th Valley crown in the last 15 years. “We really wanted to get the ball into space and utilize our whole team as attackers, and I think the girls did that very well,” Gleneagle head coach Stevi Schnoor told The Tri-City News via an email. “There were multiple times when there were very long phases of play, two of which ended in a Gleneagle try. So, that in itself is a testament to [our players’] athleticism and heart.” Tied 5-5 at halftime, Shaelynn Zurrini put the Talons ahead for
good by capping a long sequence of plays for a try. Gleneagle did well to maintain possession and work the clock the rest of the way, sealing the win when Leem notched her second try in the late going. Schnoor attributes the will, commitment and determination of her players year after year for the team’s long-standing success, and this campaign is no exception. “It sounds very cliche but the reason Gleneagle is doing so well is because of all the hard work, effort and heart [the players] put into practices and games,” she said. “These girls
are a very close group of friends and so they are always playing for much more than themselves and I think that gives them an edge.” The Talons now go for provincial glory when they compete in the B.C. high school championships May 24-26 at Klahanie Park in North Vancouver. They enter the event seeded No. 2 behind only North Van’s Carson Graham Eagles, who edged the Talons by two points earlier this season to handle Gleneagle its only loss of the campaign to date. “I truly believe anything can happen this year,” Schnoor concluded.
