Dog + bear = trouble By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A tiny but feisty Jack Russell terrier is back in its owner’s care after surviving a bear attack that left it torn and tattered. And the Port

Coquitlam woman is warning other dog owners to be aware of bears in local parks when they’re walking their pooches. On June 14, Denise Perrier’s dog Izzy was off leash and scampering ahead on a

trail to the knoll in Minnekhada Regional Park when the small dog turned a corner and was out of sight. Perrier heard growling and assumed a dog fight was in the offing. see POOCHES POOCHES,, page 4

Areas outside of dikes could be in danger: cities By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

T he city of Por t Coquitlam is advising residents and businesses located within low-lying areas to be prepared for flooding. On Wednesday, city staff visited 17 properties that are located outside the dike system that are at the most risk

should flooding occur. Residents are being given flood preparedness materials and being told that if water levels on the Fraser River continue to rise, minor flooding could occur. The spring surge of the lower Fraser River is expected to peak by Friday morning, and to continue running at high levels through the weekend as forecast rain adds to snow melt. T h e B . C . R ive r Forecast Centre ex-

pected peak flow volume to be reached Thursday at Mission, with a level of 6.38 m at the Mission gauge by late in the day. Due to tidal influences, the river is expected to continue to rise through the weekend, with daily peak levels of up to 6.75 m. (Environment Canada said a low-pressure system off the B.C. coast is expected to spread rain to the south coast by Friday and into the Interior by the weekend.) see STAY ALERT, ALERT, page 16

Chance encounter led to the hall Don Cunnings has long been making mark on Coquitlam sports By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

O

ne day several decades ago, a couple of young lads were rolling around in the grass, as boys will often do, when they were interrupted by a brusque young man who had stopped his car outside their Maillardville home. He waded into the fray, g rabbed them by the collar and said: “That’s not the way you roll. Do it properly.” For several minutes, the stranger showed them how to roll — his arms clasped around his bent knees. Then he demanded the youths do the same, complete with a final flourish on two feet. Eight-year-old Neil Godin and his brother, age 10, couldn’t believe it. “Mom, mom, mom,” they yelled when the man drove away. “This man showed us how to roll.” It was 1950 and a few days later, the boys showed up in the basement of Notre Dame de Lourdes in Coquitlam not knowing what to expect from teacher Don Cunnings. Soon, Cunnings, a nationally ranked gymnast, had them chair tumbling and for ming human pyramids in what would became Coquitlam’s premier sport in those days before baseball, soccer and lacrosse. Four years later, Godin and some of his fellow students went on to become national champions, with Godin performing a couple of Canadian firsts, including the first triple-twisting back somersault. In 1959, Godin qualified for the Pan Am Games and was a national team coach. Cunnings went on to run recreational prog rams at Riverview Hospital and became Coquitlam’s first parks and recreation director,

Top row, from left: Don Cunnings as a young teacher at Notre Dame de Lourdes in Maillardville; Cunnings tumbling; some of Cunnings’ students (including Neil Godin), forming a human pyramid using two ladders. Right and far right, Cunnings and Godin — former teacher and student — today. Coquitlam’s first director of parks and recreation, Cunnings, 81, continues to advise the city on recreation matters. leaving behind a legacy of parks and facilities in the city before retiring in 1993. (A field is named after him in Town Centre Park.) Today, Godin, a business speaker, trainer and author, credits Cunnings with putting Maillardville on the map with his gymnastic troupe and Cunnings expressed admiration for his former student for his skill and athleticism. The two were inducted Thursday into Coquitlam’s Sports Hall of Fame. The honour is a surprising cap to a long and rewarding career, said Cunnings (who continues to advise Coquitlam L e i s u re a n d Pa rk s Services), all the more so because the 81-yearold is being inducted at the same time as Godin. “My apothegm has always been ‘Don’t follow where the path may lead, go where there is no path and leave a trail.’ I never thought a branch of that trail would lead me to be in the same hall of fame as Godin,” said Cunnings.

C u n n i n g s re c a l l s Godin as an athlete of superior skill and talent who went on to compete with youths much older than himself at UBC in 1954 but who still won the championship. First at Notre Dame de Lourdes and later at Como Lake high school, Cunnings taught gymnastics routines that were so skilful, the youths were invited to perform at the Pacific National Exhibition and regattas around B.C. At the Cultus Lake regatta, for example, the gymnastics team formed a human pyramid, using only two vertical ladders as supports, on top of a 30-foot diving platform. The summer lake crowd went wild, Godin recalls, noting Cunnings as an amazing teacher who inspired him to achieve goals that he would otherwise never have dreamed of. “It was absolutely lifechanging,” he said. “It’s hard to imagine what would have happened with my life if Don hadn’t come by.” dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Sporting honour roll Besides Don Cunnings and Neil Godin, the Mann Cup-winning Coquitlam Adanacs team from 2001 is also on the honour roll. Other inductees are: • Gail Harvey Moore had established an impressive golfing resume by the age of 15, when she won the first of three straight Canadian junior championship titles. In 1961, Harvey Moore placed second at both the Canadian Ladies Amateur and Canadian Closed championship. She also represented Canada in a number of international competitions. A near-fatal car crash in 1969 slowed Harvey Moore down but didn’t stop her. She recovered to win both the B.C. and Canadian Amateur women’s titles in 1970. Harvey Moore — the mother of Tri-City MP James Moore — died of cancer in 1993. • Norm McLeod was a member of Canada’s first-ever World Cup soccer team, scoring the nation’s first goal in the tournament. As an 18-yearold, he was a member of the national team that toured the Soviet Union in 1960. McLeod, who

played four times for Canada, was also a dominating force on the provincial soccer scene. As a member of the B.C. all-star team, McLeod put the provincial squad on the map — including a vaunted win over touring Tottenham Hotspurs. He was inducted into the Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame in 2005 as well as the B.C. Softball Hall of Fame. • William Azzi’s name has become synonymous with soccer in B.C. Involved as a coach and volunteer with the old Cape Horn association, Azzi was a founding member of the Metro Ford Soccer Club in 1984. The club, under Azzi’s guidance, became a dominating force on both the youth and senior soccer levels, resulting in 26 provincial and four national championships. • Lois McNary heard an advertisement in 1983 for a job with the Special Olympics and made it her cause. The Coquitlam native started as a volunteer and helped establish a Special Olympics Coquitlam branch. She has filled numerous roles and postings with Special Olympics BC, currently servicing as vice-president, sports. McNary is also a founding member of the Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame.

Pooches off leash often provoke bears, says conservation officer She ran to put a stop to it when she saw Izzy running from a small black bear. The bruin grabbed Izzy in a bear hug and began biting it. “All I could see was her little head peeking out,� Perrier said. Perrier ran back to her truck with her other Jack Russell, Sneaky, and shut the door in a panic. “I didn’t know what to do. Should I go back and see if my dog’s there in pieces?� A few minutes later, the little dog came out of the woods, dazed and confused but alive. Perrier drove Izzy to the Coast Meridian Animal Hospital, where the vet expressed surprise that the dog survived the mauling. “She’s quite nervous now,� said Perrier. And she said she won’t let her dogs off leash in the woods any

“If it sees a bear, it will start barking at it... After a while, the bear says, ‘Enough is enough.’� James Kelly more or will bring bear bells with her, or walk with a large group to avoid startling a bear. That’s good advice for dog owners, says conservation officer James Kelly. “What happens with dogs off leash — we’ve seen this a few times before — is if it’s off leash, it will run ahead and if it sees a bear, will start barking at it and the bear will start running,� Kelly said. “After a while, the bear says, ‘Enough is enough.’� And naturally, the dog will run to where it feels safest — to its owner.

Per rier, who’s relieved to have her dog home safe, said she should have trusted her instinct and kept the dogs close or avoided the park during bear season, and said she will now be more cautious. Besides dog owners keeping their pets onleash when walking in parks and wooded areas, people should also keep their garbage locked up, electrify fences around chicken yards and secure other attractants, according to Kelly, who said the number of bear sightings in the TriCities has increased in the last week.

Open p House Invitation MEETING

Open House Invitation on Centennial House WHEN Thursday, June 28, 2012, 6–8pm WHERE Port Moody Arts Centre, 2425 St. Johns St, Port Moody You are invited to attend an open house to review and comment on the City of Port Moody’s plans, in partnership with the Arts Centre Society, to renovate Centennial House (formerly Appleyard House) for arts, culture and heritage uses. The Centennial House will be relocated from its present location on Clarke Street to 126 Kyle Street in early July. This project is subject to an Official Community Plan and Zoning Bylaw amendment to rezone the land from (RS1) One Family Residential to (P1) Public Service. The Arts Centre Society is working with the City of Port Moody to determine appropriate arts, culture and heritage uses for the building, including artists studios, gallery space, program space, gift shop and cafe. The Arts Centre Society proposes to apply for a Heritage Canada Legacy grant for the renovation scheduled to start in April or May, 2013, providing the necessary bylaw amendments are in place. We are seeking public input on both the bylaw amendment application as well as the specific uses proposed for the building. When: Thursday June 28, 2012 Where: Port Moody Arts Centre, 2425 St. Johns St, Port Moody Time: 6–8pm We’re holding this open house to hear your comments before the application is taken through the City’s formal development process. If you can’t make the meeting, but want more information on this proposal, please contact: Devin Jain, Manager of Cultural Services, City of Port Moody 604.469.4689 or djain@portmoody.ca.

Plehanov alibi examined Former TOC’s trial is to wrap up on July 3

By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The trial of Aleksandr Plehanov, a former substitute teacher accused of sexually assaulting several elementary school students, wrapped up Thursday morning at the end of the prosecution’s case. Defence lawyer Lisa Jean Helps announced she would not be calling any witnesses in the trial, including her own client. The trial ended with Helps’ brief cross-examination of Coquitlam RCMP Const. Shelby Mur phy re g arding Plehanov’s possible alibi for the afternoon of June 3, 2010. That’s the day Plehanov is alleged to have been seen outside the home of one of the girls he is accused of assaulting. In the course of Murphy’s testimony in Port Coquitlam provincial court, Judge David St. Pierre heard that a man signed in under the name Aleksandr Plehanov at the Burnaby food bank at 4550 Kitchener St. some time between noon and 1 p.m. on June 3, 2010, and that the food bank regularly allows people to line up at about 11 or 11:30 a.m.

Aleksandr Plehanov’s lawyer did not call him to testify in his own defence. Mur phy also testified she had driven two separate routes from the food bank to the location where Plehanov was allegedly seen outside the girl’s home, noting one route took 37 minutes due to construction, while another took 26 minutes. Earlier in the trial, a neighbour of one of the alleged victims testified she had seen a man, whom she believed to be Plehanov, outside the girl’s home just before 11 a.m. on June 3, 2010. The neighbour called police and officers arrived at about 11:30 a.m. They patrolled the area for about an hour but did not locate Plehanov. On June 8, Plehanov was allegedly spotted in his vehicle in the same area, this time by the distraught mother of an alleged victim. Police arrived about an hour later but didn’t find the suspect, and Burnaby RCMP

arrested him later that night at his home. Following Helps’ decision to not call any evidence, Crown prosecutor Wendy Van Tongeren Harvey gave a brief outline of the submissions she would be making on July 3, including some regarding legal issues around the reliability of evidence given by children. Those submissions will be followed by closing arguments. Outside the court, the father of one girls expressed his relief that the trial was over, adding he wasn’t disappointed Plehanov didn’t testify. “I didn’t expect he’d testify,” the man said. “There’d be too much risk.” The father, who can’t be named to protect the identity of his daughter, said she’s doing “all right” but he’s worried about the “other families who didn’t come forward,” with their allegations regarding Plehanov. He also praised Crown counsel and Coquitlam RCMP Victim Services for their support over the last two years. “I hope he’s found guilty,” the father said of the man who allegedly assaulted his daughter. “And I certainly hope he isn’t able to teach anymore and he isn’t able to be with kids in any capacity.” He wants to see the

school board implement new policies to prevent similar incidents in the future. Plehanov is facing five charges of sexual interference and five charges of sexual assault involving girls who were aged seven and eight at the time of the alleged incidents, which date back to January 2008. He is also facing a charge of criminal harassment in relation to a June 2010 incident. Plehanov is alleged to have touched students inappropriately soon after he started teaching in School District 43 in 2007 and, although he was cautioned by fellow teachers and principals, and reported to the BC College of Teachers in 2009, nobody called police. The touching reportedly included girls sitting on Plehanov’s lap and him touching their shoulders, bottoms, stomachs and lower pelvic area, and is alleged to have continued until the parents of one girl reported the incident to police in March 2010. Plehanov was arrested about a week later. The defence has argued Plehanov was an ineffectual teacher who misunderstood the boundaries between teachers and students. Helps also argued much of the girls’ allegations were clouded by conversations with their friends and parents. spayne@tricitynews.com

SD43 to get carbon offset payouts back By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Cash paid by school districts to the province for carbon offsets will now be returned in the form of grants for energy saving projects — more than $300,000 this year. In a memo to School District 43, Victoria has outlined a new carbon neutral capital program that will help cashstrapped school districts fund lighting and other upgrades. Melissa Hyndes, SD43 chair, wasn’t available to comment before press time but the Coquitlam board of education has long been critical of the province’s carbon neutral regulations, which came into effect in 2008 and require districts as well as other government agencies to tally up their carbon emissions, based on energy and paper consumption, and pay $25 per tonne. Tri-City trustees have

been concerned about thousands of dollars the district has paid to the Pacific Carbon Trust. “ We h ave t o p ay money out of the classroom to subsidize this, yet schools that are entrepreneurial get no offset,” Port Coquitlam Trustee Judy Shirra commented at a board of education meeting in February. Now, under new rules confirmed in a press release this week, districts will get all the money they pay in offsets or more for energy saving projects. For SD43, that amounts to $328,650 in 2012/’13. The district hasn’t decided what to spend the money on but, in the future, districts will be required to submit project requests before getting the funds. According to the memo from the province, the district has already received $257,454 in compensation for car-

bon offsets while it has paid $555,612 for carbon offsets since 2010. In addition to establishing a $5-million capital fund for school district energy saving projects, the province has announced two other changes to its carbon neutral program. It will no longer charge an administration fee for public sector agencies to use the SmartTool to calculate carbon offsets and will establish an advisory board to determine what projects the Pacific Carbon Trust will fund. The panel will include representatives from the private and public sectors that purchase offsets from PCT as well as select carbon industry experts. According to the ministry, school district energy saving projects have achieved annual cost savings of more than $12.6 million province-wide while reducing GHGs by over 35,600 tonnes.

Q WHAT WE THINK:

H

oodlums involved in the Stanley Cup riot are about to see some justice with 114 accused rioters receiving charges and at least one sentencing. It’s unfortunate that Tri-Cities youth were caught up in the chaos but they will have to take responsibility for their actions and maybe they will learn from them. Jail sentences are entirely appropriate for individuals with records and those with histories of violence or police run-ins. But restorative justice, employed by groups like CERA (Communities Embracing Restorative Action) in Coquitlam, have the skills to bring victims and perpetrators together for reconciliation. If asked, CERA could host meetings where accused individuals meet with the people they hurt and come up with a remedy, which could be financial, community service or other action. Some of these youth could explain their actions in public and local students could benefit. Restorative justice can make the victim feel better and safer while restoring the harm done. And while it only works in some cases, mostly involving young offenders, it’s worth a try.

Bridging the Pattullo divide (with $800M) AS I SEE IT Chris Bryan

P

erhaps you’ve heard of the plans to replace the Pattullo Bridge with a new, six-lane span. You would be forgiven if you glossed over the details because it no doubt makes sense to replace the old, rotting deathtrap with something that has wide enough lanes that you don’t avoid the centre lane for fear of a headon conclusion. TransLink wants the new bridge ready for traffic by 2018, and in my little city of New Westminster, this gives us the chills. We have the good fortune, and misfortune, of living in a city created before the car. Narrow streets, houses bundled together, snug with schools and businesses right up to the edge of most streets. Walkable, bikeable (for those with hill-climbing thighs) and incredibly well served by transit. We’re told this is a good urban model.

2012 CCNA

But the 450,000 cars that travel through here daily are killing our chance to really make our city work and adding two lanes to the Pattullo would actually do us more harm. And it’s not really going to help other commuters, either. If you’ve taken the Pattullo through my city during rush hour, you’ll understand. Many days, it’s a creeping, inching, exhaust-belching nightmare. For New West folks, the aggravation is different: We’re trying to get through it to get our kids to soccer practice or pick them up from daycare. The real problem with the Pattullo is that it lands in the heart of our city. (As our city’s chief engineer says, if you were to build a new Pattullo today, would you really put it there?) The Ironworkers Memorial Bridge is six lanes and it’s on Highway 1. The new Pattullo would dump six lanes of traffic onto local roads, McBride Boulevard and Royal Avenue, past an elementary school and two middle schools. If we were a very large city instead of 15 sq. km, one really clogged area wouldn’t be such a big deal.

On the other hand, I think I understand Surrey’s situation. A thousand new residents per month? That city is absolutely booming. Surrey residents need to get to work in Burnaby, perhaps. They might even have friends in my fair city they would like to visit. You might have even heard some rumblings that folks in New West were saying the Pattullo should be scrapped altogether, and thought, what are those people smoking? There was a forum in New Westminster last week packed with Royal City folks echoing the same concerns I’ve outlined here. Surrey Coun. Barinder Rasode bravely stood up and made the important point that had to be made: Surrey wants the new Pattullo. In fact, she said, it needs it. People in Surrey cannot cancel their car insurance and make the leap to transit, even part of the time, because transit service south of the Fraser River sucks. And in New Westminster, we are blind if we believe that Surrey’s situation and

choices are in any way similar to ours. So I propose a compromise. Let’s keep the existing bridge but rehabilitate it. Make the lanes wider and safer, as was done in 2001 with the Lions Gate Bridge. Add ample cycling and pedestrian sidewalks. Paint it, too, make it look pretty. TransLink estimates this would cost about $200 million. That’s about $800 million less than the cost to build a new bridge. Then, I propose we immediately gift that $800 million to Surrey to give it what it desperately needs: Improve transit; fast-track light rail between Surrey City Centre and Guildford; get the rapid bus plans for King George Boulevard and over the new Port Mann back on the table. With a new Port Mann Bridge doubling capacity by the end of the year, my guess is that if we put our new money into transit south of the Fraser, we’ll soon find ourselves in a situation where everyone wins.

FACE TO FACE: Is year-round schooling the way to go in British Columbia?

Shorter holidays, more school days the summer, schools could have a longer spring break or Christmas break. The traditional school calendar, with its long summer break, is based on an outdated agrarian timetable from a time when children were needed on the family farm to harvest crops. There’s no reason to maintain the same archaic schedule now. If I were king for the day, I would even go a step further. At the risk of sounding like a cranky old fart, I think kids these days should spend more time in the classroom and less time in front of their television sets or playing Nintendo Wii and Xbox. Why not extend the school year beyond the current 193 days to 215 days or more? Students are in class, for example, 243 days in Japan, 240 days in Germany, 220 days in South Korea and 216 days in Israel. By the time Japanese teens have completed 12th grade, they would have spent the equivalent of at least two more years in school than their Canadian counterparts. Sorry, kids, my vote is for more school and a shorter summer holiday. You’ll thank me when you’re older.

n sunny spring lunchtimes at Monty middle school, as principal, I would watch swarms of kids playing soccer or basketball outside and otherwise happily running around, making up their own rules, getting along, learning life lessons more beneficial than those offered in afternoon math class. On such idyllic days, I felt like turning off the school bells and letting them play all afternoon, to let them be kids for as long as possible before trudging back to instruction, compliance and competition. Because our kids need less adult structured time, not more. But not according to my drill sergeant colleague and Education Minister George Abbott, who recently tabled legislation to encourage year-round schooling. Without consulting educators (that’ll show ’em who’s boss) and without spending a nickel, it feigns forward thinking — after all, summer holidays are so agrarian and passé. Further, it courts allies in the BC Liberals’ fight with teachers, serving as a not-so-subtle reminder of muchenvied two-month teacher vacations. Simply, it’s good politics. But good politics and peripheral arguments aside, proponents of year-round schooling ultimately

accept the notion that more time in school will help us keep up with other countries whose children go to school eight days a week, 13 months a year and evenings. They’re mistaken. Asian students work hard in school because education is important and teachers are revered in Asian culture, not because they go to school more than we do. It’s the respect Asian cultures have for education that we should emulate, not their hellish school hours. In international measures, Finland’s students score highest in world (Canada is third). Finnish students enjoy a two-and-a-half month summer vacation and go to school 165 days per year, more than 20 fewer than B.C. students. Wow, imagine how well Finnish students would do if we gave them more worksheets, FSA exams and made them go to school more! The academic diligence we hope our children embody won’t come from added time or rigour; it will come from within, gently coaxed out by adults through respectful communication, not more school days. Summer vacation gives unstructured time for kids to be kids. It should be a happy, developmentally important time — as important as their formal schooling.

f you’re a parent of a schoolaged child, you’re probably not looking forward to the next two months as much as your kids are. For most parents, a two-month summer vacation means a significant hit to the pocketbook and weeks of unrelenting stress and aggravation. You’ve got to find affordable child care, you’ve got to find things to keep your children stimulated and you have to make sure your kids don’t forget what they’ve learned in school. I remember when I was in school, my teacher would spend the first month of each new school year re-teaching us what we forgot over the summer. Let’s face it, a two-month break is good for teachers but it’s too long for students and parents. That’s why I applaud the BC Liberals’ introduction of Bill 36, which would allow school boards to decide if they want to eliminate the standard school calendar and allow for a more balanced schedule. Under the proposed legislation, schools would still have approximately 193 days of in-class instruction but districts would have the option of spreading them out. So instead of two months off in

The fact is, most of us are struggling to feed, clothe and provide a roof over the heads of our families. We all have wish lists of things we would like to have.

Fence issue is private, not public THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Coquitlam community group that asked city hall for â&#x20AC;&#x153;leadershipâ&#x20AC;? to rebuild a common fence in its area was told this week it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any help from the public body. Monday, the councilin-committee advised the Westwood Plateau Community Association (WPCA) it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intervene as the city would set a precedent if it intrudes on private property ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rights. The issue came before council last October when WPCA secretary Tom Cox and member Lockery Munnion lobbied for city assistance to find ways to get about 70 Westwood Plateau residents to pay to rebuild the fence, a common amenity that was built as part of a development agreement between the city and Wesbild. Over the years, the wooden fence has become run down and the association believes it is devaluing the neighbourhood. To complicate the matter, the fence posts donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t line up with property lines so, if one neighbour wants to tear down and replace his fence, the supporting

posts are in the neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yard. L a s t m o n t h , C ox met with city planning general manager Jim McIntyre, and a consultant hired by the city, to resolve the issue but was told thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing the city can do from a legal standpoint. This week, Cox and Munnion pleaded their case again â&#x20AC;&#x201D; before the new city council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a real difficult situation because private property rights are involved,â&#x20AC;? said Coun. Mae Reid, who added the project couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be classified as a local improvement (under that program, the city pays 10% for new infrastructure such as curbs, gutters and traffic calming measures while residents pay the balance). Coun. Terry Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill said the city isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in a position to compel homeowners to join in, and infringing on their rights â&#x20AC;&#x153;could take us to court,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are protecting all of Coquitlam homeowners by not participating in this.â&#x20AC;? Mayor Richard Stewart added city staff have taken steps to ensure common amenities arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of future development agreements.

Stay alert for river flooding

Baires prelim The young man accused of dang e ro u s d r iv i n g in the death of a Burnaby teen two years ago in Port Moody will be in court for a preliminary hearing next month. Christopher Baires faces nine charges, including impaired and dangerous driving causing death. On Sept. 2, 2010, Baires was driving with three friends after a day at White Pine Beach. He is alleged to have tried to pass another car on a blind corner on Bedwell Bay Road when he lost control and hit the trees lining the road. Melissa Tomac, a 16-year-old Burnaby girl, died later in hospital.

The lower Fraser dike system is designed for river levels up to 8.89 m but the high water is raising flood risk in areas not protected by dikes. Residents of Barnston Island near Surrey were put on flood alert by local officials Thursday. Properties along the Pitt and Coquitlam rivers could also see some flooding and water levels are expected to peak today (Friday). In 2007, the city of PoCo used grants from the provincial government to upgrade many of the dikes in the municipality, raising them to approximately 5.5 m high. Still, people who walk along the dikes are warned to use extreme caution as water levels are higher than usual and the current is moving fast. The city of Coquitlam is also warning resi-

Witnesses sought to MVA involving drunk driver Coquitlam RCMP is asking for witnesses to come forward after an impaired driver was involved in a motor vehicle accident last Thursday. The incident hap-

pened at around 8:40 p.m. on June 14 along Lougheed Highway west of Shaughnessy Street in Port Coquitlam. Police responded after a 1993 four-door grey Honda Civic travelling

east on Lougheed collided with three vehicles that were stopped at a red light at the intersection. The driver attempted to run away before being caught by an off-duty Port Moody police officer.

Nobody was injured in the collision and the suspect was arrested, and now faces charges for impaired driving and failing to remain at the scene of an accident as well as driving while

prohibited. “The driver has a long history of impaired driving and was a prohibited driver at the time of the accident,” Coquitlam RCMP said in a press release.

Police are considering additional charges and are seeking information from anyone who may have witnessed the driver’s actions in the leadup to the collision. Anyone with infor-

mation is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call 1-800-2228477 or go to www.solvecrime.ca. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

FINAL WEEKEND

A rarely heard from section of the Coquitlam RCMP recently teamed up with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources in an unusual investigation. The Rural Policing Unit, along with the ministry, removed 15 abandoned cars and trucks from the north end of Pitt Lake. The vehicles had become environmental hazards as they were badly decomposing and leaking toxic fluids into the lake. Vehicles that weren’t claimed by their owners were loaded on to a barge and sent for recycling. The Rural Policing Unit is reminding the public to use auto recycling facilities and car charities for unwanted vehicles. spayne@tricitynews.com

Holdout cities are falling in line on RCMP contract By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

Burnaby and North Vancouver City will join Coquitlam in signing a controversial new 20-year RCMP contract

despite deep concerns among the holdout cities about the costs that will flow to them. A few remaining cities— including Port Coquitlam, Richmond and North Vancouver District — are still weighing whether to sign ahead of a provincially imposed June 30 deadline, which has already been extended twice and

won’t be again. The provincial government has warned it will take responsibility for policing cities that don’t sign by July and charge them full costs, without the 10% federal subsidy that applies to RCMP bills. “It’s not a flip at all,” North Vancouver City Mayor Darrell Mussatto said of his council’s ex-

pected reversal on June 25, adding cities can still exercise a two-year optout clause in the contract. His city will take the next year or so to weigh the true costs of the RCMP contract against the potential of switching to an alternate municipal model. see REG’L REG L STUDIES, STUDIES, page 20

Say goodbye to Knee pain Experience the benefits of Low Intensity Laser Light Therapy “My name is Lisa Porcellato and I received treatment on my right knee. I am a fitness instructor and I instruct several types of classes per week and I jog a couple of times per week as well. I was experiencing sharp pain directly under my knee cap. I came in for 5 treatments and after 3 I noticed a huge improvement. I am now resuming all of my fitness activities and my knee feels great. I have recommended laser light therapy to several people.” ~ Lisa Porcellato

“After several weeks of suffering I thought I had nothing to lose by giving laser treatment a try. After only 6 treatments I could walk again (short distances) and following the full course of treatments (14) my knee was back to 90% of where it was before I over-exerted the knee. I am now driving without pain and can walk a couple of miles without problem. I would thoroughly recommend anyone with knee pain consider a course of laser treatment.” ~ Gerry O’Hara

Reg’l studies continued from page 18

One policing study will be mounted by the North Vancouver municipalities looking at the potential to partner with West Vancouver’s municipal police force or form their own. “The study might even look at what a regional policing model might look like,” Mussatto said. Another study will examine much the same issues for Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Richmond and Bur naby, possibly looking at links to the municipal forces in Port Moody, New Westminster and Delta. R i ch m o n d M ayo r Malcolm Brodie said his council hasn’t yet decided what to do. He said the province has warned cities face significant penalties if they don’t sign but the cities also believe they will be locked in to higher contract costs if they do sign. “We’re in a very difficult spot where our city loses no matter what,” Brodie said. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said this week his council is signing under duress. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, who represented B.C. cities in the contract talks and

was repeatedly criticized by Corrigan for the outcome, stressed he is not declaring victory over the Burnaby mayor. “This isn’t about me winning or losing a battle with any other mayor,” Fassbender said, adding it’s a wise decision for holdout councils to sign and then take their time deciding whether to opt out of RCMP service. “Why would they have their taxpayers pay more for whatever amount of time it would be to simply make a point?” Fassbender said. “They can make the point by doing a study then making a decision.” Meanwhile, he said, all cities can work through new contract management committees that have already begun meeting to try to make the new deal work and increase accountability of the Mounties. All the mayors have repeatedly said they do not take issue with the service provided by RCMP officers in their cities but, rather, with the costs and accountability of the force. Another major concern are potential costs stemming from the new $1.2-billion RCMP E Division headquarters in Surrey. jnagel@blackpress.ca

There will be music (Celtic fare and world-class pipe bands, naturally) and dancing to go along with it, very large men in kilts throwing very heavy objects, as well as a car show and activities just for the kids (and a wee dram of whiskey, just for the big kids).

• What’s Eating You? Biological Control of Insect Pests in the Home Garden: When people grow plants for food, some of those plants end up being eaten by pests — insects that compete with us for our food crops. The good news is that there are predators that feed on these pests. Biological control provides a sustainable, ecologicallybased alternative to the use of chemical pesticides for pest management. Rob McGregor from the Institute of Urban Ecology at

Douglas College will discuss methods in biological control along with a communitybased program where local gardeners collect information on biological control in the home garden. The session runs from 7 to 8:30 p.m. next Thursday, June 28, in the Nancy Bennett Room at the Poirier branch. Phone 604-937-4155 to register for this free program. For more information about any of these programs, visit www. library.coquitlam. bc.ca. The City Centre branch is located at 3000 Burlington Dr. and the Poirier branch at 575 Poirier St.

The Hometown Run in Port Coquitlam is the Tri-Cities’ biggest Terry Fox Run but its smallest — in the village of Anmore — is in need of a leader or it may not, er, run.

Leader needed for Anmore’s Fox Run

The Terry Fox Run in Anmore is still without an organizer for this year’s charity event. And Donna White of the BC/Yukon Terry Fox Foundation says if a leader isn’t found soon, the run may have to be cancelled. Last month, the Port Coquitlam-based foun-

dation, named after the hometown hero, issued an appeal for someone to step forward to head the run in the village. This year’s run will be held on Sunday, Sept. 16 and, in Anmore, it typically sees about 100 participants (there are also Terry Fox Runs in PoCo, Coquitlam and

Port Moody). Anyone interested in helping can contact White at 1-888-836-9786 or email bcyukon@terryfoxrun.org. For more information about the Terry Fox Run, which raises millions of dollars a year for cancer research, visit www.terryfox.org.

Registration open for Sept. SPCA event Summer has just begun but registration is already open for a big charity event at the end of the season. You can sign up now for the 2012 Scotiabank and BC SPCA Paws for a Cause walk and, according to an SPCA press release, “become a pawesome supporter” of the group. Animal lovers across the province are gearing up for the SPCA’s signature event, being held Sept. 9 in 35 communities throughout British Columbia, including Coquitlam. “We are so grateful to all our supporters... Paws for a Cause is our biggest fundraising event of the year and our branches are reliant on the life-saving funds our participants raise,” said Farrah Rooney, manager of fundraising events for BC SPCA, which this year hopes to raise $1 million for B.C.’s most vulnerable animals. “Participating in Paws for a Cause is a fun way to make a difference in your community. Our events are a true celebration of animals and feature all kinds of activities for the whole family.” Those interested in getting involved in the Paws for a Cause may join as an individual, as a group or as a corporate team. Registrants are all eligible for local and provincial prizes, and participants who raise $500 in June will receive a free SPCA hoodie. The Coquitlam walk starts at noon on Sunday, Sept. 9 at Lafarge Lake, in Town Centre Park. Prospective participants should visit spca.bc.ca/ walk for information on sponsorship opportunities and fundraising ideas, as well as pledge kits, posters and volunteer opportunities. The BC SPCA is a non-profit organization funded primarily by donations. Its mission is to prevent cruelty and to promote the welfare of animals through a wide range of services, including cruelty investigations, emergency rescue and treatment, sheltering and adoption of homeless and abused animals, humane education, advocacy, farm animal welfare, spay/neuter programs, and wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.

The proposal has been revised to relocate the laneway house to the northeast corner of the property. We are seeking your input and comments on the proposed development. The Owner will be available to answer questions. If you have any questions please contact: Dr. Michael McCann Email: mikeslwh@gmail.com Website: http://mikeslwh.blogspot.com Telephone: 604-931-6963

Be smart and be safe with home reno’s ing. Include start and completion dates in the contract. Homeowners must hold back 10% of the contract price until 55 days after the general contract is substantially completed, abandoned or otherwise ended to ensure that all subcontracted companies are paid. This way, if there are liens from workers who did not get paid from the original contractor, the hold-back may be used to help pay these liens. • Do your homework. As always, you can visit BBB’s website (www. mbc.bbb.org) to look up an organization or file a complaint. You can also ask the contractor for local references, and get a chance to see the actual work done by the contractor. If the contractor does quality work, they should have no problem providing references.

Get free legal help Many people face legal problems they cannot easily resolve alone. And accessing and making sense of the legal system can often be difficult and intimidating, especially for low-income individuals who cannot afford to hire a lawyer. The Law Students’ Legal Advice Program (LSLAP) exists to help those people. LSLAP is a non-profit organization that offers free legal advice and representation at clinics located throughout the Lower Mainland. It assists more than 4,000 people each year and has operated clinics for more than 40 years. Volunteer UBC law students, working under the guidance of supervising lawyers, provide legal advice in various areas of law, including criminal law, small claims, residential tenancy, employment law and many more. LSLAP is British Columbia’s largest legal aid organization and the demand for its services continues to grow. Its clinics are open once again to help people with their legal issues. Individuals seeking legal advice should contact the program and book an appointment by calling 604-822-5791. As well, every year, LSLAP publishes a manual that covers a multitude of legal areas and provides clear and concise recommendations as to what to do when faced with a variety of legal problems. The manual is useful to both general legal practitioners and members of the public. You can download the manual for free at www.lslap.bc.ca or you can buy a printed copy for $85. Order forms may be downloaded from the website. The 2012 edition of the LSLAP manual will be available in late summer.

During the war m weather, homeowners often take on home improvement projects. Whether you are looking to redo your kitchen or bathroom, replace your home’s roof or build a deck, it is essential that you find a contractor you can trust. Last year, Better Business Bureau serving Mainland B.C. received 867 complaints against general contractors and home improvement related companies. This past spring, BBB has received reports of contractors in the Thompson-Okanagan and across the Lower Mainland who have intimidated homeowners and ended up charging too much and doing too little. “Watch out for red flags from those just looking to make a quick buck,” Lynda Pasacreta, BBB president and CEO, said in a press release. “Be especially wary of doing business with a contractor who solicits business door-to-door. This could mean that the contractor is just passing through the area trying to scam innocent consumers.” BBB advises consumers to use the following checklist when choosing a home contractor: • Don’t give into sales pressure. If a contractor shows up to your door offering services, ask to take their business card or flyer. Do not let a person pressure you into signing up. Let them know you will contact them after consulting with your spouse or partner. • Be picky and have lots of options. Seek at least three bids from prospective contractors based on the same specifications, materials and labour needed to complete the project. Homeowners should discuss bids in detail with each contractor and ask questions about variations in pricing. The lowest-priced contractor may not be the best. • Make sure they are insured. Consumers should ask whether the company is insured w i t h Wo rk S a f e B C against claims covering workers’ compensation, property damage and personal liability in case of accidents. Consumers should obtain the name of the insurance carrier and call to verify coverage. • Get everything in writing. Read and understand the contract before signing. Get all verbal promises in writ-

Kids can vote on new PoMo library card just for them Calling all kids: Port Moody Public Library is launching a new library card just for children and librarians need your help in choosing the best design.

Three designs have been created for the new children’s card and PMPL wants to know which one young people like best. Children are invited to visit the library

and cast their vote. The contest is open to children up to 12 years old or anyone who is registered for the Port Moody summer reading club. The rules are simple:

Visit the library, choose your favourite design and then vote. Each child is allowed to vote once each day for his or her favourite design. The contest is running all summer, so children

will have plenty of opportunities to vote. The contest closes on Sept. 1 and the winning design will be announced the following week at the summer reading club medal cer-

emony. The brand new children’s card will be available in time for Port Moody’s 2013 centennial celebrations. Funding for this project is provided by the Links to Literacy

golf tournament. Port Moody Public Library is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m.

Mad Science tomorrow Children aged four and older are invited to Coquitlam Public Library’s summer reading club kick-off party tomorrow (Saturday). Mad Science instructors will conduct entertaining experiments. Club registration takes place at the Poirier branch 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. City Centre registration will take place from 2 to 2:30 p.m., with the show running from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in Coquitlam city hall council chambers.

It may not be as quick as a phone call or as efficient as a text message but, in an emergency, radio communication is the most reliable. That is why members of the Coquitlam Amateur Radio Emergency Services Society will be dusting off their equipment this weekend to participate in the annual Field Day Exercise, a 36-hour communication effort that will showcase the talents of local radio operators. While the event is good practice for a major emergency, Martin Hyde, the club secretary, said it is also an opportunity for operators to come together and connect with people around the world. “Basically, you contact as many people you possibly can around the clock for 36 hours,” he said. “This is the radio communication social event of the year.” During a disaster, such as an earthquake or a major storm, traditional communication lines can be wiped out and signals can be jammed, said Hyde. Radio signals, however, are still able to be transmitted with ease, allowing emergency officials to contact outside agencies for help. That makes radio operators integral to an emergency response plan, Hyde said. “It is a simple and robust system,” he said. “I can send text files anywhere this side of Japan, Australia, up and down the eastern seaboard, using 50 watts of radio power.” During the Field Day Exercise, a point system is put in place, allowing each team to see how it fared against its competition. For example, a team that contacts a group that is operating a radio off of a generator will receive a certain number of points while points are also given for how many politicians and community officials visit the site during the 36-hour period. Hyde said last year, a combined team from Coquitlam, New Westminster and Burnaby won its class in Canada. This weekend’s event will take place at the northeast corner of Blue Mountain Park and starts at 11 a.m. on Saturday, June 23, wrapping up 36 hours later. Members of the public are invited to visit and see the radio operators and their equipment in action.

Stories on Wheels runs from 11 to 11:45 a.m. on July 16. Free tickets will be available for club members beginning July 3. For more information, visit www.fvrl.ca or call 604-927-7999.

Staff at the Coquitlam Ikea store teamed up with Big Brothers last Sunday for its eighth annual spring cleanup. The charity had trucks at both Lower Mainland Ikea stores (the other is in Richmond) to accept clothing and household donations from customers, who in return got a store coupon. In total, the drive collected 16,252 lb. of goods — 9,431 lb. from Coquitlam and 6,821 lb. from Richmond. “At Ikea, we believe that children are the most important people in the world and our long-standing local partnership with Big Brothers provides us with an excellent opportunity to support the children in our community alongside our customers,” Jen Knight, Ikea Coquitlam’s communications manager, said in a news release.

I believe #60 addresses the cause internally instead of the symptoms. Latitifa Bouts t hik ik, 43, 3 No N rt rth Yo Y rk rk, ON I had severe psoriasis over 95% of my body. Last 5 years I have stunned every doctor and dermatologist. I spent tons of money on remedies. After I got Bell #60, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen anything work as fast in my life. Within 2 days I saw my skin clearing up. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m speechless. It was inexpensive compared with what I spent before.

Secure your windows Warm weather increases risk of children falling from windows As the weather warms up, so does the potential of young children falling out of windows without proper security locks. In B.C., already by the May long weekend, three toddlers had fallen through open windows since April. BC Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital and BC Ambulance Service are asking parents to make sure their homes are secure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Falls from windows seem to be increasing in frequency. Last year, we saw about 10 seriously injured children, compared to three to five per year in past years,â&#x20AC;? Dr. Ash Singhal, medical director of BC Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trauma program, said in a press release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Falls are more common in younger children between one and six years of age, and seem to occur more frequently in the spring and summer. Many of the injuries can be quite severe, requiring surgery and causing potentially long-term effects for the child.â&#x20AC;? Falls from windows often occur at a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home, most commonly in the afternoon, when windows are open or not fully secured as the family is home. Paramedics see the critical injuries that result from falls from windows, from broken bones to facial and head trauma. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best advice we can provide to caregivers is to ensure you have the right safety locks on windows and doors, especially if you have young children,â&#x20AC;? BC Ambulance service superintendent Julien Ponsioen said in the release. While it might be tempting to leave a window open a crack to let in some fresh air as the weather warms up, remember that young children are innately curious and natural climbers and may not understand the risk of their actions. They can be strong enough to widen an unlocked window enough to fall out of it. Hospital staff and paramedics offer the following safety tips to prevent falls from windows: â&#x20AC;˘ Window screens will not prevent children from falling through. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t underestimate a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mobility; children begin climbing

GEORGE DOYLE/THINKSTOCK

Kids are curious and resourceful so parents must be careful with open windows in summer months. Doctors and paramedics urge them to secure windows. before they can walk. Move household furniture away from win-

dows to discourage children from climbing to peer out.

â&#x20AC;˘ I n s t a l l w i n d ow guards on windows above the ground level. These act like a gate in front of the window. â&#x20AC;˘ Alternately, fasten windows so that they cannot open more than 10 cm (four inches). Children can fit through spaces as small as 12 cm wide. In either case, ensure there is a saferelease option in case of a house fire. â&#x20AC;˘ Young children are avid learners â&#x20AC;&#x201D; they may be able to unlock doors and windows to gain access to dangerous areas without you realizing it. Make sure to have the proper window and door locks in place. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave children unattended on balconies or decks. Move furniture or planters away from the edges as kids can climb up and over. â&#x20AC;˘ Talk to your children about the dangers of opening and playing near windows, particularly on upper floors of the home.

nce again, with cold spring weather persisting into June, it has been a year of challenges for our food gardens. The good news is there’s still lots of time to get our veggies and fruits planted. Remember, the whole idea of food gardening is to enjoy the wholesomeness and wonderful flavour of your favourite fruits and vegetables, grown as organically as possible. Even if all you have is a container on a particularly sunny balcony, you can still enjoy some great flavour. Here are a few tips to make your gardens more successful: • For most veggies and fruits, by waiting for warm weather, our plants will grow and produce food faster. • Raised beds or containers have warmer soil by about 8 C for faster root growth. • For container gardens, the larger the container, the better for growing and maintenance, and they don’t have to be expensive. • Use only quality soils and add organic matter to enrich them. Container soils must be used in containers — do not use topsoil in containers. • For most things, planting seeds will still work, but fresh quality transplants can save you up to three weeks of time. Many growers are producing larger plants for a major head start. • Choose the plant varieties that perform the best in your area and remember there are early, mid and late varieties for longer harvest periods. • There are some wonderful new varieties of plants like ‘Simply Salad’ blended lettuce, ‘Cute Stuff ’ red peppers and Japanese burpless cucumbers. • Heat lovers, like tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash, melons, sweet potatoes and basil will perform better the closer we get to consistent night temperatures of 10°C. Plant them where you get sunlight between 11: a.m. and 3: p.m. • You can still plant started everbearing

If you grow a bounty this season, consider donating some of your produce to your local Salvation Army as part of the Plant a Row, Grow a Row program. For details, visit growarow.org. raspberries and strawberries for enjoyment this year. • Do your watering in the morning as much as possible to allow your plants to utilize the moisture during the daylight growing process. At night plants transpire moisture away. Keep the foliage of your plants dry at night to minimize disease problems. • If you choose to grow organically, organic soils and fertilizers are more readily available now than ever before. • If you are very time challenged, as most folks are today, slow release nutrients that feed continually for up to four months are available. • Once we get into warmer summer weather, disease and insects tend to be less of an issue but daily checking of all plants is the best way to control any problems. Today there are effective organic solutions to control pests and disease. I want to assure everyone that there is lots of time left to enjoy growing your own food garden. Many great gardeners are already enjoying the harvest of their cool crops that were planted some time ago. The bottom line is don’t miss out on the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful food garden this year – remember those wonderful flavours!

Vancouver’s Chinatown bustles with history

town feel to the big city Vancouver’s Chinatown is full of culture, history and community spirit. It’s a great place to live, but as one of the most historical areas of Vancouver, Chinatown comes with several guidelines for developers. “How do you build in a part of the city with so much history?” says Brian Low, director of Panther Constructors. Panther is currently building The Flats on Georgia, a nine-storey, 28-unit condominium building in Chinatown. Some of the guidelines they ran into were height restrictions and the number of windows allowed on the building, Low says. They also had to ensure that the architecture of the project would fit

in with the surrounding buildings. After much consultation with the city, they were able to accomplish this feat. But it was the friendly atmosphere that most attracted Panther to the area. “It’s a small town inside a big city,” Low says. As a National Historic Site, Chinatown is always bustling with visitors and residents. It’s the second largest Chinatown in North America. The market holds vendors of all stripes, selling everything from local vegetables to fine seafood. A movie theatre and several banks have also set up shop, so Low’s idea of a small town in a big city is certainly not far off.

luxurious, with custom-designed vanities and porcelain tile floors. The quartz countertops are modern and cool, while the oversized shower stalls with semi-frameless glass doors (in most of the two-bedroom homes) are an elegant addition to the bathroom. The deep soaker tub is perfect for relaxing after a long day. The neighbourhood itself is a great selling feature for Verve. “Central City is all new with lots more to come,” says Chaput. With a campus of Simon Fraser University, the Central City mall, the City Centre

Library, Surrey City Hall (currently under construction), a performing arts centre and the Civic Plaza, Surrey’s City Centre is rapidly becoming a major urban gathering place. Verve is just minutes from SkyTrain, so you will be easily connected to everywhere in the Lower Mainland. There are several schools in the area as well, so Verve is great for families of all ages. The amenities in the building include a yoga studio, furnished guest suite and a gym. There will also be a children’s play area, a large meeting room, a fireside lounge with a flatscreen TV, games rooms with a pool table, games area and kitchen/bar that opens onto a private patio, and a party room with a full kitchen, bar and private patio as well. Porte will hold a grand opening on June 23, and Chaput is already anticipating a great response. “With mortgage payments around $750 per month, you can own for less than renting,” she says, adding that the homes are “super affordable. ... This is a great opportunity to get in the market.” Homes at Verve start at $154,900. Sales begin on June 23 at noon, so get there early. The presentation centre and display homes are located at 10119 Whalley Boulevard, between 100 and 102 Avenue. They are open daily from 12 to 5 p.m. except for Fridays. For more information, visit www.porte.ca/ verve or call 604-588-3783.

‘Great opportunity to get into the market’

Getting g more for y your money at Porte’s Verve by Kerry Vital

City style comes to Surrey with the opening of Porte Development’s Verve. Located on Fraser Highway at 139th Avenue, the location is ideal. It’s a sixminute walk to the SkyTrain station, yet set in a quiet corner of Surrey. With a great location, beautiful homes and a fantastic price point, Verve is truly a project for design lovers. “You get more for your money,” says Jeanette Chaput, director of sales and marketing for Porte. “More square footage and a really quality product.” The homes range from 541-squarefoot junior one-bedrooms to 986-square-foot two-bedroom and den condos. In addition, there is a small collection of three-bedroom townhomes that are almost 1,400 square feet. Verve will have three buildings, each with only 66 homes. This will make it a more intimate neighbourhood.

With mortgage payments around $750 per month, you can own for less than renting,” says Jeanette Chaput, director of sales and marketing for Porte Development.

Outside the architecture is contemporary and dynamic. Each building has a complementary but unique colour palette to give it its own style. A paved stone driveway leads onto the tree-lined interior streets between the buildings, and a pedestrian walkway makes its way to trails and parks. Each home comes with a spacious garden patio or balcony, and there is plenty of space for parking. In fact, all homes come with a parking stall and most two-bedroom homes come with a tandem stall for two cars. The nine-foot ceilings (11 feet on the top floor) lend an incredible sense of space to your home, and the two colour schemes (designed by award-winning designers BYU Interior Design) are both so beautiful that it is hard to choose between them. The kitchens at Verve have a special detail in each one. These touches range from pantries to built-in workstations and wine racks. The chic cabinetry feature high-gloss

upper cupboards and warm wood lowers, complemented by polished quartz countertops and ENERGY STAR stainless-steel appliances. Undercabinet valance lighting illuminates all of your tasks, while the laminate flooring throughout the main living areas continues into your kitchen. The bathrooms are deluxe and

The homes at Verve feature nine-foot ceilings and plenty of living space (top). With polished quartz countertops and stainless-steel appliances (above), the kitchens are perfect for fulfilling your every culinary desire. Homes start at $154,900.

Popular cukes come in many varieties IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter

C

an you imagine a salad without cucumbers? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you love a cool crisp cucumber sandwich on a hot day, or fresh cucumbers in vinegar? And what would a grilled cheese sandwich or hamburger be without pickles? Well, cucumbers are just about the most popular vegetable in the home garden (remember: tomatoes are fruits). Cucumbers have been around for awhile too. They have been cultivated both in India and China for about 3,000 years. Columbus is generally given credit for introducing them to North America. Thank you Christopher! Now, of course, there is some dispute as to whether he actually made it here, but we are, nonetheless, fortunate to have these wonderful vegetables, and now, finally, is the time they should be planted. I know this because all the folks who planted cucumbers earlier are now going back to garden shops to replace their first and second crops which have already died due to the cold and disease. Cucumbers are warm weather plants and should only be set out when night temperatures are constantly around 10 C. Cold, wet ground is no place for cucumbers. For best results, they should be planted in hills or raised beds with excellent drainage. I always dig plenty of manure down deep, about twelve inches below the ground, to give those roots some place to go that is damp and rich in humus when the weather gets hot. Bitter-free

cucumbers can only be grown if the plants have access to moisture, especially during the fruitbearing cycle. If you seed cucumbers, they seem to take off very quickly once the weather warms up, but transplants need a little more care. Greenhouse grown transplants need at least four to five days of acclimatization before they can be set out in the ground, and even then they need some protection from the elements. Old shingles or shakes are ideal because they break the wind. Incidentally, be very careful not to disturb the rootball of young plants because the roots are extremely tender, and the plants will suffer a set back if the roots are damaged. There are many fine cucumber varieties available today which display good disease tolerance. But to be on the safe side, keep that cucumber patch moving to a different location in your garden each year. Wet spells in the summer, or watering too frequently overhead often cause â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;alternaria leaf spotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. As with any disease prevention program, healthy, well-fertilized plants are less susceptible to these problems, but keeping that foliage dry is really important. Copper is an effective fungicide for controlling this problem, but you must act quickly if the disease appears. Now, as to varieties, the list seems to grow each year. Many experienced gardeners like the old-fashioned â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;National Picklingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Marketmoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Straight 8â&#x20AC;&#x2122; varieties. If you have been having success with these older strains, then stay with them, but there is a wealth of newer varieties on the market and each has its own unique characteristics. For example â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bush Pickleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for containers, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pick a Lotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cross

Country Picklingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Homemade Picklesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; are all great new garden varieties. When it comes to slicing cucumbers, it is burpless all the way! If you like the long English types, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a greenhouse handy to keep out those pesky bees who want to pollinate the self-pollinating varieties, then try either the Japanese burpless, like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Orient

Expressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Burpless #26â&#x20AC;&#x2122; or the shorter and sweet American burpless, like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sweet Sliceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sweeter Yetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; A hot new smaller, bite sized introduction, called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mathildeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, is a delicious French cornichon variety. The great feature of burpless cucumbers is the fact that you can eat the skin without fear of an upset tummy, and every fruit is bitter free.

Centennial athlete darts to Spartans Nathan George takes to TWU track By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

N

athan George tore up the track at the B.C. high school provincial championships earlier this month in Burnaby. Now, he’s bolting clear to Langley –– and perhaps beyond, one day. The Centennial Centaurs’ sprint phenom scampered to top spot in the boys’ 200 metres, which he also won in 2011, and the 400m before agreeing to join the Trinity Western Spartans university track and field team on scholarship starting next fall. The sleek, five-foot-11 George is currently the top ranked junior-aged athlete in B.C. in both the 200m and 400m, with personal bests of 21.80 and 47.89 seconds respectively, and is ranked fourth in Canada in the 400m and fifth in the 200m. Over the years competing with the Coquitlam Cheetahs, George has been a dominant sprinter and, in the process, has won numerous awards, including the club’s Sprint award in 2011, Most Valuable Player in 2010, Outstanding Male Juvenile in 2010 and Most Improved Senior Male in 2009. To boot, George also had the chance to represent Canada in 2011 at the IAAF World Youth Championships, where he competed in the 400m. Now, TWU is his main primary focus. “I chose Trinity Western because I felt the people there not only valued me as an athlete, but they also valued me as a student they would like to see succeed,” said George, who plans to study human kinetics with a focus on sport and leisure management. “I feel that going to a smaller campus will help my transition from high school to university and will provide me with more personal support. I’ve heard nothing but good things about coach Laurier [Primeau] and Trinity Western’s track program. “It’s a developing program and I’m excited to take part in contributing to its success.” Next fall, the Spartans will enter their third year back competing in the CIS after a six-year hiatus and Primeau believes George will give the team a huge boost out of the blocks. “Nathan is one of the most talented high school athletes in the country,” Primeau gushed. “Adding this quality of athlete to our roster can’t be overstated. He is a truly gifted individual.”

SWEET SUMMER SWING

BERNARD BRAULT/GOLF CANADA ARCHIVES

Defending champion Brittany Lincicome is among five former CN Canadian Women’s Open golfers who’ve previously won the title and are slated to again compete in the tournament when it comes to Coquitlam’s Vancouver Golf Club from Aug. 20-26. Currently the world’s No. 13-ranked player, Lincicome is expected to be joined by No. 4 Suzann Pettersen, No. 8 Christie Kerr, No. 38 Michelle Wie and No. 45 Katherine Hull in the field of 156 competitors. Also competing will be Coquitlam’s own Jisoo Keel, a Canadian national junior team member who’s earned exemption.

Determination and attitude d often f make difference in fishing and in life TIGHT LINES Jeff Weltz

rowing back. Bill took his regular fly off, replaced it with a large black one and made a cast… got one! I heard him yell somewhere in the dark. I rowed back and he was all excited and laughing. He said, “You see, it’s never too late.” –– from The Anglers Coast, by author Russell Chatham. I remember Art Williams telling us back in the days of A.L. Williams: “You can take two athletes with equal skill and ability and pit them against each other in a competition. One will win the other will lose. The difference is determination.” Over the years I have seen that truth proven time and time again. Anyone who goes fishing wants to catch fish. It would not be

Stay ready for bite to come A silver dusk was settling, and I was weary from a long and fishless afternoon. I’d have been glad to quit right then. Bill stood eagerly in the stern of his boat, making the same long, and graceful casts he had in the first light of dawn. If anything, he was more intense than earlier. Toward evening he becomes impatient. We fished until it was absolutely pitch dark. the salmon started to roll, but caught nothing. I reeled in and started

fishing if the intent was not to catch fish. Sometimes it happens easily, other times it can be down right tough. Last weekend after fishing a competition, I had an epiphany. Four hours of poor conditions without a touch had seen my expectations drop to nil. My optimistic colleague in the front of my boat decided to try something different. Three hours later, my friend had five fish in the boat, while I had none. The bite was short in duration and, being unprepared, I had missed it. I threw in the towel too easily, while my friend always has that never-quit attitude. In fishing, like anything else, attitude is everything.

THE REPORT

With sun in the forecast, our Lower Mainland lake fishing looks good this weekend so try to get out and enjoy. For wet (sinking) fly trout fishing try Chironomid, Bloodworm, Red Spratley, Coachman, Zulu, American Coachman, Professor, Wooly Bugger, Micro Leach, Dragonfly Nymph, Sixpack, Doc Spratley, Pumpkinhead, or Baggy Shrimp. For dry (floating) fly trout fishing try Tom Thumb, Irresistible, Royal Coachman, Renegade, Elk hair Caddis, Black Gnat, Griffith Gnat or Lady McConnel. Fishing on our Interior lakes is good.

PoCo tennis team first in Miele loop Port Coquitlam Tennis Club aced the competition at Sunday’s Miele Men’s League wrap-up tournament, hosted by Tennis BC. PoCo’s B1 team took the title, which qualified it for the Miele provincial team championships Aug. 3-5 in North Vancouver. It also means the 12-man unit will move up to the eight-team Greater Vancouver A league next season, the highest club division in the province. PoCo beat out Vancouver’s Jericho White squad, netting 27.13 points compared with the latter’s 25.15. Steve Deakin and Stephan Witijono of PoCo won the Doubles 1 division crown, posting a convincing 6-2, 6-1 sweep. Don Rintoul paired with PoCo team captain Markus Gaertner to place first in doubles 3 with a 7-6, 7-5 triumph. In doubles 2, PoCo’s Orlando Bokor and Daniel Gorsic split their first two sets 7-5 and 6-7 before falling 6-10 in a tie-breaker. In singles, Byron Kidd of PoCo also split two sets –– 2-6 and 7-6 –– before getting bounced in a tie-breaker 8-10. The four final matches left PoCo and Jericho each with 2-2 records, but PoCo won out after having posted more set victories (6-4). “The reasons for our success this year is we welcomed four new players to the team, among them Steve Deakin, a [former] national U-16 champion,” Gaertner said, naming the other newcomers, Witijono, Rahsaan Dobbs and Michael Kiktavy. “Our strongest point was bringing out [our] top players more than the other teams did.”

have selected to continue on,” Kudaba said in a press release. “In addition to all of the players listed the Team BC staff also has a shortlist of players who have been evaluated but for conflicts, including illness and injury, were not able to participate in our May camp. These players, as with all players, will be monitored through their respective [fall] seasons to see if they should be considered for our final team.” Listed players will receive further communication in the future on what the next step is in the process, which will include another camp later in the year where another round of cuts will follow. “Unfortunately, we will have to cut down further to a roster of 34 and the best players will be chosen to compete wearing the Team BC jersey in San Antonio, Texas,” Kudaba said. The current roster includes nine defensive backs, eight defensive linemen, seven linebackers, eight offensive linemen, five quarterbacks, six running backs and nine receivers.

Six Tri-City high school football players survived the latest round of cuts following last month’s BC Under18 squad’s Victoria Day long weekend camp. The Team BC roster has been trimmed down to 52 players, with five of those stemming from the Terry Fox Ravens heralded B.C. AAA program and another, receiver Nathan Lund, coming from the reputable Centennial Centaurs, it was announced Tuesday. Ravens still eligible to make the unit’s final 34-man roster that will compete next January against fellow U-18 American teams in San Antonio, Tex., include defensive linemen Brad Lyons and Kyle Sagmoen, offensive lineman Michael Beck, quarterback Trevor Casey and receiver Adrial Sellers. The squad’s head coach for the third straight year is Ravens’ co-head coach Tom Kudaba. “All of us with Team BC are extremely excited with the group we PLEASE READ THE FINE PRINT: *2012 Sienna LE – 7 passenger Automatic KA3DCT(A) MSRP is $29,880 and includes $1,760 freight and pre-delivery inspection, tire levy, battery levy and air conditioning federal excise tax.
