Riverview on endangered list RIVERVIEW STORIES

‘It shows the value of R’view,’ says councillor By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The Riverview Hospital grounds are among the most endangered historic sites in the country. Wednesday, Heritage Canada Foundation released its Top 10 list for 2012, which in addition to the Coquitlam l a n d a l s o i n cl u d e s Chilliwack’s Paramount Theatre, Canada’s lighthouses and the Barron building, the birthplace of Calgary’s oil industry. “I think this is good because, right now, we are in the middle of a heritage conservation plan with the provincial government and I think it shows the value of Riverview — not just for the resi-

For nearly 100 years, Riverview Hospital has been a Coquitlam landmark and a provincial hospital of high standing. It has provided jobs for residents, office space for community groups, a peaceful setting for walks and, most importantly, mental health care and safe and secure housing for patients. Now, as the aging hospital shuts down and the last remaining patients are transferred to new facilities, The Tri-City News is looking at this iconic institution and how changes in mental

health care there have reflected changes in the community and society. In Riverview Stories, an ongoing series by reporters Sarah Payne and Diane Strandberg beginning today and featuring photographs, interviews and online content, The Tri-City News aims to reflect on what made Riverview special in the past, its role in the community at present and what decisions need to be made to ensure its legacy is safeguarded for the future. You can read the first instalment on pages 16 and 17.

dents of Coquitlam but also across the country,” said Coun. Craig Hodge, who chairs the city’s Riverview Lands Advisory Committee. Foundation spokesperson Carolyn Quinn said the provincially owned site had been on the group’s radar for some time and, when the Riverview Horticultural Centre Society submitted its formal package earlier this month, the application was pushed to the top for consideration “fairly quickly.” The foundation bases its decisions on three key factors: the property’s heritage value, its level of threat and the community support to keep it. And although there’s no guarantee the buildings will be saved, “it helps to draw attention to the cultural and heritage elements” of the site, Quinn said. see EXTRAORDINARY EXTRAORDINARY,, page 7

Cops monitor local gangsters By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Moody Police are reassuring residents and visitors alike that the City of the Arts is safe, despite two recent high-profile gang murders. On Monday afternoon, Burnaby resident Randynesh (Randy) Naicker, a founder of the Inde pendent Soldiers g ang, was gunned down outside Starbucks at St. Johns and Queen streets. Less than a month earlier, on May 30, Sur rey’s Gurbinder (Bin) Singh Toor, who had connections to the Dhak/Duhre gang, was

How does a bill become law in Canada and what is a constitutional monarchy? Ask your friends these questions on Canada Day and see what kind of answers you get. Chances are you’ll get an embar rassed chuckle but for immigrants who want to become Canadian citizens, it’s no laughing matter. They must be able to answer these and dozens of other questions on geography, culture, politics and Canadian history in order to qualify for citizenship. It’s a daunting task but thanks to Coquitlam Public Library and a partnership with the Immig rant Services Society of BC (ISSBC), immigrants facing the citizenship test now have tutors to help them learn about their adopted country. Library patrons and administrators have simplified and explained the Discover Canada: The Rights and Responsibilities of Citizenship guide and are teaching it to wouldbe Canadians from all over the world. “It’s absolutely a joy to teach,” said Silvana Harwood, CPL deputy director, who is working with ISSBC and volunteers John Perry, Greg Mitchell, Doug Rolling and J.J. McCullough to teach the course. Course participants so far have come from east-

The next citizenship training session begins July 19. Participants are required to have ELSA Level 3 or higher. To register, call ISSBC at 778-284-7026.

Julia Wang is working on her Canadian citizenship test with the help of Silvana Harwood, deputy director of the Coquitlam Public Library. ern Europe, Asia, South America and the Middle East, and Harwood said she has learned as much as she has taught over the past several weeks. Julia Wang, who recently completed the course, is grateful for the effort that was put into explaining some of

Cel 604 240 1927 604-941-3838

the more complicated concepts, such as how the Canadian government works. Wang, a graphic designer, immigrated to Canada from Guangzhou, China with her husband and daughter, a student at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and quickly

got involved in Tri-City life. She volunteers with her church and the TriCities Chinese newspaper but wanted to take the next step. Becoming a Canadian is important, she said, because it will allow her to participate more fully in Canadian life. “I hope

to be a blessing to my family, my church and my community,” Wang said. During the course, Wang lear ned about the rights and responsibilities of Canadian citizens, the founding peoples of Canada and important historical milestones, such as the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the War of 1812 and the two world wars. But the students also took time out to talk about other topics central to Canadian life, including hockey and food. Harwood said people from for mer Soviet Re p u bl i c c o u n t r i e s know a lot about hockey but the winter sport was a mystery to others. Another popular topic, she said, is the weather. As for why a library should get involved in teaching the citizenship guide, Harwood asked what other institution is better suited for such a job. “It’s a place of knowledge and compassion; it’s a place for sharing,” she said. “It’s the perfect place for this kind of course.” dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Onni wants to build 9-storey tower in PoMo By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The Suter Brook hole is unlikely to become a hotel. Onni Development Corp. is applying for zoning changes to its last remaining parcel of land to build a ninestorey commercial and office building at 220 Brew St. Port Moody’s land use committee will consider the application at its next meeting on July 3. Mayor Mike Clay said he’s happy to see something happening at the site, which has been a vacant pit for the last four years. “The residents of Suter Brook and other residents would like to see something fill that hole,” Clay said. “If this is something they want to take to the public for their opinion, that’s a good thing.” Clay said Onni has abandoned plans for a hotel because of market conditions but with the site’s office and commercial space fully leased, there’s demand for more. “There are some people looking for space in Port Moody and any chance we have to capture employment opportuni-

ties... makes it worth it for us,” he said, noting there is little appetite for any more residential highrise towers in the area. In 2008, Onni proposed building a 138room hotel but, in exchange, the developers wanted to increase the plot’s residential component from 1,250 to 1,705 units. They would do that by turning two low-rise towers into a third highrise and raising the number of floors from 26 to 32 storeys. To sweeten the deal, Onni offered $2 million for PoMo’s affordable housing fund and extra cash for the public works yard relocation and recreation centre renovation. But the application came at a time when Inlet Centre residents feared owners of the Heritage Mountain S h o p p i n g Vi l l a g e were planning to convert their property to highrise towers and shortly after Bosa had revealed plans for developing the nearby Irly Bird site. With the Evergreen Line then an unlikely dream, residents were wary of adding any new density. The 2008 council voted against the application, with only for mer mayor Joe Trasolini supporting it. see LAMENTING LAMENTING,, page 4

Shelter work By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The organization overseeing the construction of a homeless shelter and transitional housing facility in the Coquitlam has begun the process of selecting an architect. The request for proposals closed Monday and RainCity Housing, which will operate the shelter planned for 3030 Gordon Ave., will now sift through 10 to 20 applications. “We are reviewing them and we are going to meet over the next couple of weeks,� said Sean Spear, an associate director with RainCity Housing. “There are some really experienced and excellent candidates.� He added that a decision on which firm the society selects will be made by the middle of July and work will commence on the project almost immediately. Spear hopes preliminary work can be completed in time for a public open house, expected to take place in September. Once a design is finalized, a builder will be selected in the fall. The process must move quickly, Spear added, in order for the project to be com-

pleted by 2014. “That is what we are working on and that is the timeline we have,� he said. “We want to get this built.� Input from the community will be sought as the project moves through the design phase and one organization that will be particularly involved is the Tri-Cities Homelessness Task Group. Sandy Bur pee, the group’s chair, said there are several design elements that are important to the committee. An office to co-ordinate volunteers is necessary, he said, in order to connect the community with the shelter and allow for consultation from local residents. He would also like to see a dental clinic on site. The Gordon Avenue shelter has been in discussion for close to three years. In 2009, the city of Coquitlam made the land available for an emergency shelter and transitional housing facility. When it is completed, it is expected to have 30 emergency shelter beds and 30 transitional housing units, and is seen as a way of getting people off the streets and into permanent housing.

Clay suspects Onni is coming forward with the application now because it has secured an anchor tenant for the new building. But at least one person is lamenting the loss of the hotel that never got off the ground. Robert Simons, who ran against Clay for the mayor’s chair in the 2011 election, wrote in a letter to The Tri-City Newss that PoMo offers an unbeat-

able location and, with construction started on the Evergreen Line, the time is right for a hotel. “Tourism is a key element of the local economy and one that requires quality hospitality services as it grows,� Simons wrote. “I, for one, see the hotel as a viable opportunity for the city. I also see the likelihood that Port Moody may lose a valuable economic and employment opportunity to our neighbouring communities.� spayne@tricitynews.com

PMPD part of gang efforts continued from front page

“Like everyone in the Lower Mainland, we have gang members living here and we have gang associates living here, and some just come to town to do business,” said PMPD Deputy Chief Const. Chris Rattenbury. The PMPD’s gang initiative, together with the department’s crime analyst, is monitoring at least 40 known gang members and associates living in Port Moody. A PMPD press release stated: “While we cannot control who lives in or drives through town, the PMPD are actively working to ensure that Port Moody remains one of the safest communities in the Lower Mainland” through its participation in the Integrated Gang Task Force, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit and the Bar Watch program. PMPD also works with Coquitlam RCMP’s Drug and Gang Suppression Team, and the agencies work to identify and target gang members and associates involved in gang and drug activity in the Tri-Cities. In 2009 the PMPD took the unusual step of warning residents when gang members Jonathan Bacon and Dennis Karbovanec were living in PoMo, saying the pair posed a “significant threat to public safety.” Karbovanec was later arrested and is now serving a life sentence for murdering three of six people in the Surrey 6 killings in 2007 while Bacon is in prison awaiting trial in the same case.

FRIEND SPEAKS

The body of Randynesh Naicker lies on Queen Street after he was shot to death in a targeted gangland hit on Monday afternoon. “No matter where you live in the Lower Mainland, there are going to be bad things happening but overall we do fairly well here,” Rattenbury said. At Tuesday’s council meeting, Mayor Mike Clay applauded the Port Moody Police and their efforts to keep the community safe. “Crime exists in the society we live in and crime is not unique to this city,” Clay said. “It’s very fortunate that we

didn’t have innocent bystanders injured last night [Monday], and as despicable as these events are, it’s no reflection on Port Moody but on the randomness of these people and what they do.” • PoMo Police are encouraging anyone who witnessed the crimes, or simply feels the need to talk about how the shootings have affected them, to call victim services at 604-937-1313. spayne@tricitynews.com

A friend of Randy Naicker who spoke to talk show host Simi Sara on CKNW Wednesday afternoon said the 34-year-old Burnaby resident was doing “everything he could” to untangle himself from the gang life. He had recently completed a fiveyear stint in prison after being convicted in the 2005 kidnapping of a Surrey gangster. His friend, who was not identified, said Naicker “wanted to fall in love, he wanted to have a family and he wanted to live a quiet life but unfortunately, his past caught up with him.” “We saw the good in Randy, the person who wanted to make a better life for himself,” his grieving friend said. “It’s very tragic.”

Food fight over forks By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Moody’s summer concert series at Rocky Point Park will have four new guest stars — and they’re bringing food. Old Country Pierogi, Gour met Hotties, Hotties Panzerotti and This Little Piggy aren’t the latest musical acts but the food cart vendors approved by council at Tuesday’s meeting. Staff recommended the four after receiving six applications; the two that didn’t make the cut provided incomplete information. But Coun. Rick Glumac wasn’ t impressed with at least one vendor that didn’t specify whether it uses compostable or biodeg radable containers and utensils. “Hottie’s Panzerotti provided no information on their waste stream,” he said, suggesting a motion that would eliminate the vendor from the list. Coun. Diana Dilworth pointed out there was no specific requirement in the original request for proposals that a vendor

PORT MOODY PUBLIC ART

Port Moody will pursue plans for a public art piece in the civic centre with the theme of Art in Motion. The project, which is estimated to cost $95,000, will go in the traffic circle in front of city hall. Staff are proposing the flag poles currently there be moved to another location to give the artist a “blank canvas.” Mayor Mike Clay said he didn’t want to see the flag poles moved and voted against the motion. Another public art piece, this one by a First Nations artist, will also be unveiled next year for the city’s centennial celebrations. provide such utensils, and staff noted Hottie’s offers a small eat-in area, and potentially uses reusable dishes. “We’re being a little silly about this,” concluded Coun. Gerry Nuttall. “It’s a short period of time and they are in the Vancouver [food cart] program so they’ve probably been scrutinized very closely... and this is a trial first year.” Glumac asked that staff request the vendors use compostable utensils if possible, and Mayor Mike Clay added their permit to operate in Rocky Point Park

should be revoked if the vendor’s level of garbage output poses a problem for staff. The carts will be at the park Sundays from July 8 to Aug. 26. In a related motion, council also approved a compostable waste diversion pilot project for Rocky Point. The zero-waste recycling stations will also be at Rocky Point during the summer concert series, and will be staffed by volunteers to help direct park users on how to dispose of their waste properly. spayne@tricitynews.com

We need your help to stop the spread of Giant Hogweed within the City of Coquitlam. Giant hogweed poses a threat to human health and the natural ecosystem. Growing quickly to heights of up to 5.5 meters, Giant Hogweed can be identified by its white flower blooms and the stiff white hairs that cover most of the plant. The sap contained in the hairs covering the plant and in the stem can cause severe burns when in contact with human skin.

Death, danger

Q WHAT WE THINK:

I

t’s a sad story: a man shot and killed in the prime of his life in a public place. Two men, actually, two public places. Both in Port Moody. The deaths are tragic on their own but the fact that these shootings occurred in busy locations where innocent people were at risk make them doubly horrific. On Monday afternoon, 34-year-old Randynesh Raman Naicker of Burnaby was fatally shot just steps from a busy PoMo Starbucks. On May 30, Gurbinder Singh Tour, 35, of Surrey, was killed at the PoMo recreation centre on his way to a ball hockey game, with hundreds of people in the vicinity. These senseless killings are bad enough, and should be a wake-up call to young men and women thinking of getting involved in drugs or gangs. The fact that the killers appear unconcerned about the risk to innocents is both sickening and scary.

B.C. businesses pay too much property tax AS I SEE IT Shachi Kurl

H

ow would you feel if you were paying two, three, four, even five times as much property tax as your next-door neighbour — and yet not getting the same amount of services? That’s the reality facing small business owners in British Columbia every day. This week, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) released its 2012 Municipal Property Tax Gap Report, finding that BC small businesses pay an average 2.78 times the residential tax rate for properties of equal value. Small business has a big impact on B.C.’s economy, accounting for 98% of all B.C. business, providing well over half of all private sector job creation and generating just under a third of our GDP. Between 2009 and 2010 alone, small business created close to 14,000

2012 CCNA

net new jobs, or around 36% of all jobs created. Thus, ensuring conditions that encourage small business success is vital to British Columbia. This year’s report shows progress toward achieving property tax fairness has essentially flat-lined. On the one hand, this is good news — the trend of increasing the unfair tax burden on small businesses is unsustainable. On the other hand, the failure to achieve any meaningful reduction in the gap is irresponsible and harmful. This lack of political willpower continues to cost not just small business owners, their families and employees but, also, the economic health of our province. A recent CFIB survey found that 69% of our members ranked their municipal property tax as the tax most harmful to their business, and this had grown from only 38% six years ago. Municipal governments rely on property taxes for funding and so increased spending

IN QUOTES

“Property taxes must be paid regardless of whether a business makes a penny in profit.” Shachi Kurl, Canadian Federation of Independent Business, BC & Yukon requires higher property taxes. Business always pays a higher rate than residents, making them especially vulnerable to the impact of excess spending. Property taxes must be paid regardless of whether a business makes a penny in profit. The property tax bill can be the difference between a business thriving, surviving or dying. In any case, it is not money being used for job creation, expansion or innovation. In Coquitlam, for instance, CFIB found the municipal tax gap rose last year to 4.85 from

4.69, and is far above the provincial average; Port Coquitlam saw an increase to 3.66 from 3.58; and Port Moody went up to 3.06 from 2.99, and these latter two are both also above the provincial average. This is an abdication of political responsibility and is unacceptable. These gaps represent a real burden on local businesses and on the regional economy. This matters for your families and communities. That’s why it’s important and that’s why all of us should care. And that’s why CFIB will continue to speak out for a sustained commitment to greater tax fairness. This will require more action, more progress in narrowing the property tax gap and a greater effort to reduce municipal operating spending. Small business owners are the lifeblood of the B.C. economy. They deserve to be treated fairly. Healthy communities depend on it.

FACE TO FACE: Celebrating Canada, each in his own way

Once displaced, now Canadian M

y colleague opposite and I have decided to drop the proverbial boxing gloves this week and to write about a subject very near and dear to both of our hearts. In commemoration of Canada Day, instead of musing about how to run the country, we agreed we would write about how great this country is and how lucky we are to be Canadian. My family’s path to Canada is little different from my colleague’s but similar to hundreds of thousands of others. My parents were born and raised in Uganda, an east African country that, in 1971, was taken over by the brutal military dictator Idi Amin. Amin tortured and killed hundreds of thousands of his own people and, in the summer of 1972, issued an edict that all the Israelis, Europeans and Asians who were living in Uganda had to leave the country within 90 days. At the urging of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, the Canadian government accepted my parents along with 7,000 other Ugandans who essentially had nothing but the clothes on their backs. I often hear stories about how scary it was for them, being in a

strange land thousands of miles from home, away from their families (my parents’ families were sent to England) and with no money. Thankfully, the government housed them, fed them and took care of their health needs until they were able to support themselves. Today, my parents and their children — my brother and I — are all hockey-loving, taxpaying Tri-City residents positively contributing to Canadian society. This is the Canadian dream. At the risk of sounding cheesy, there aren’t too many days that go by where we don’t remember Canada’s gift to our family. We are humbled to have been accepted by such a compassionate and caring nation. We have been blessed to be part of such a wonderful multicultural society where we’re not handicapped by the colour of our skin, our beliefs or even our ancestry. We’re thankful to live in a land of opportunity where hard work and persistence are the great equalizers. And ultimately, we are so proud to be Canadian. On behalf of my family, happy birthday, Canada. Our Canada.

Flag waving? Not how we roll W

hat I like best about Canada Day is what we don’tt do to express patriotism. We don’t cheerlead about our country or engage in loud reverie, hundred-gun salutes or glorification of military endeavour. Canadians share a mature love of country that doesn’t need the reassurance of fanfare or pomp. We express our patriotism quietly. As usual, our family will make its patriotic statement by going to Port Moody city hall for the firefighters’ Golden Spike Days pancake breakfast. We’ll eat pancakes and sausages on a paper plate, among friends, neighbours, (and ex-students), drinking sketchy coffee and mingling. The city hall plaza won’t be plastered with Canadian flags. There will be no brass band playing “The Maple Leaf Forever.” No ceremony or speeches glorifying our troops or our freedom. We know all that. It will be calm, civilized, friendly and maybe a bit cheesy — just like our nation. Over pancakes, the talk won’t be about Canada but, to its annual participants, this local July 1 tradition is a stronger homage to country than fireworks and a fly-past. In the evening, we’ll watch CBC show Canada Day celebrations in Ottawa, a celebration of understated

Canadian proportions — open air, apolitical, scrupulously balanced French, English and First Nations content, and not too long. But as low key as we are as a nation, when I’m snowbirding in Palm Springs, I am repeatedly amazed at how deep Canadian patriotism is. When, during happy hour, an American friend slips into discussing American politics, Canadians listen and commiserate without engaging. Conservative or liberal, easterner or westerner, there is a shared, knowing glance; there’s no point arguing — Canadians have a different vision, with which we are quietly, almost smugly, comfortable. This remote patriotism shows that love for Canada, though reserved, is deeply felt and unshakeable. The fact that Canadianism is so portable is a testament to its strength. We tried hysterical flag-waving during the Vancouver Olympics, to the point that other countries started to bristle. Flag waving feels good but it’s just not how we roll. Canadian patriotism is like a 60year marriage: Its real strength lies in respectful sharing, seldom involving much overt physical expression. This Canada Day, may we all appreciate what Canadians so strongly and quietly, share — and maybe have some pancakes.

Cops urge buyers beware after paving complaints Arrest made for possession of stolen property By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The Por t Moody Police Department is warning the public to be on the lookout for shady door-to-door contractors offering paving work to residents. Last week, police were called to the Oxford Drive neighbourhood to assist bylaw officers with complaints from

residents concer ned about messy and noisy workers in the area. Bylaw officials became suspicious when shortly after their arrival, several workers quickly fled the area. Police caught up with one of the men, who was found to be in possession of a stolen push roller, a piece of equipment used for paving. “A m a l e w a s a rrested at the scene,” said Port Moody Police Department Const. Luke van Winkel. “A roller compactor was

confirmed to be stolen. The owner of that equipment also stated that there was a missing jackhammer... so there is a jackhammer that is still outstanding.” The suspect was released on a promise to appear and van Winkel said he will likely face charges of possession of stolen property. He added that the men involved in last week’s incident are connected to two companies — W Price Paving and Capital One Pavers. Neither company is reg-

istered with the Better Business Bureau or licensed with the city of Port Moody. They do not have websites and could not be found in the B.C. YellowPages. Van Winkel warned that residents should be cautious when using contractors who go doorto-door offering work. “It is very much a buyer-beware situation,” he said. “They may not have the experience and is something goes wrong you may not have any recourse.” gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Heat Up the Dance Floor!

New rec centre roof Leaks in the Port Moody recreation centre’s roof mean parts of it will be replaced earlier than expected. Roofing over the old rec centre, the curling rink and the skater’s lobby have required regular repairs for the past few years, and staff have determined it’s now past its lifespan. The skater’s lobby roof was originally slated for replacement in 2013 but recent leaks have pushed the schedule forward. Staff have also found that replacing all three roof sections at once could save up to $50,000, and the city would save on other related costs as well. After a request for bids was posted in May, the city has selected Mack Kirk Roofing and Sheet Metal Ltd. for the $332,632 (plus tax) job. spayne@tricitynews.com

PORT MOODY

Historical Highlights In 1879 Port Moody became the western terminus of the Canada Central Railway which was being extended to Kamloops Lake and eventually to Craigellachie. The completion of the all-Canadian transcontinental railway line in 1885 led to the historic first passenger train hauled by Engine 371 from Montreal to Port Moody on July 4, 1886. Today we celebrate that event as Golden Spike Days, a popular event for all ages.

A bid by two sports groups to get a covered indoor facility in Coquitlam to meet current — and future — needs will be explored by a consultant. On Monday, council voted to go ahead with a study but also cautioned the city has many priorities on its list that may take precedent. Coun. Brent Asmundson said staff are already looking at the feasibility for improved indoor tennis courts and a larger Everg reen Cultural Centre “and now we have this one,” he said. “There are so many things that are on the books that need to be built first,” said Coun. Lou Sekora. Earlier this month, the city’s sports council, led by Coun. Craig Hodge, heard a presentation about the possibility of an indoor sports facility from Chris Wilson of the Sports Centre Users’ Association and Joe Basic of the Coquitlam Field Sport Association, who said box lacrosse, ball hockey and soccer groups, for example, are desperate for more floor time. “This is something that’s been talked about for quite some time,” Hodge told his colleagues, adding, “We need a study to find out where it would go and who the users would be.” The two groups are pushing to have a new indoor facility up by 2016 — the year the city has pitched to host the BC Summer Games.

Do your homework before buying or selling a house. Selling or buying a new house can be a complicated process and involves a lot of planning - and often a little ingenuity, too. Considering the size of the investment you have made in your house, it’s worth your while to take the time to learn how to protect it and yourself. Here are some tips to get you started: Show your house in its best light. Your house might be competing against others in the area, so you’ll want to give yourself every possible advantage. A clean house makes a good impression and shows that the house has been well looked after. It’s what buyers want to see. A fresh coat of paint and some light decor can revitalize the interior and make it attractive and appealing. It presents a positive image of your house and can help make for a successful sale. Stay informed about housing market conditions. Do your research and learn what factors affect the housing market and the prices in the neighbourhood. Understand how they would apply to your house, either buying or selling it. Scan the news, real estate magazines, the Internet and any other related resources. It’s also beneficial to consult with industry professionals; mortgage brokers and realtors can advise and assist you with pricing, market conditions, financial processes and legal requirements. Confirm that your insurance coverage is current. If you’re having an open house, ensure your home and

possessions are protected. Safely store valuables whenever you are having people passing through the house in your absence, and confirm that your insurance is both valid, and provides proper coverage for your house, personal belongings and liability. Protect your new home. Securing insurance for the home is usually a requirement with mortgages, so plan ahead and be prepared.

You’ll pay for parking www.tricitynews.com

By Janis Warren

In City Centre, where Evergreen will terminate and highrise building is brisk, that program could potentially generate up to $20 million for the municipality over 10 years — money that could be put towards more public parking along Evergreen and pedestrian/cycling facilities, for example. This summer, city staff will conduct surveys to gauge feedback on the use of city lots, the results of which will be part of a report for council’s consideration after the city consults with stakeholders and the Urban Development Institute on its Evergreen parking plans, Mohoruk said. Meanwhile, commuters looking for a spot to park along Pinetree Way will have to shell out after this summer. The city is finalizing its contract with a new service provider to reinstall parking metres along Pinetree — specifically, around Douglas College — and to charge 75 cents an hour for onstreet parking and at City Centre public lots (City Centre Aquatic Complex, Pinetree community centre and Everg reen Cultural Centre).

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

An illustration shows the planned Evergreen Line travelling up Pinetree Way in Coquitlam. Burquitlam Plaza on North Road, the parking oversupply is 20%. Mohoruk said city staff recently looked at 10 sample sites in Burquitlam/Lougheed and found that “if these sites were to be rebuilt today, using current rezoning requirements, in almost all cases, we would be providing too much parking. “It was recognized what we’re seeing is some room for change.” The city study shows vehicle ownership is the lowest in City Centre, Austin/Maillardville and Burquitlam/ Lougheed (public transit, income and demographics are factors) while Como/Mundy, Cape Horn and Ranch Park/Riverview have the highest rate of vehicle ownership. Still, as the city plans

to put the squeeze on parking for new deve l o p m e n t s a ro u n d Evergreen stations, it also wants to hike the number of public parking spaces — a concept many councillors feel is crucial given poor transit service in the TriCities. Under staff ’s proposal, developers building new housing close to Evergreen would be allowed to cut their parking requirements by 5% if they offer public transit incentives to tenants, such as car sharing options and ride passes. And if developers want even fewer parking spots in their complexes, they could take part in a voluntary cashin-lieu system, paying $25,000 for every parking spot they were supposed to provide under the zoning bylaw.

Coquitlam’s mayor and council are among the 43 groups that have pledged to clean up part of a road — and keep it litter-free — under the city’s Adopt a Street program. City council recently joined the initiative in adopting a section of Pinetree Way and Guildford Way, close to city hall and where the Evergreen Line terminus will be built in 2016. According to a staff report, the 43 groups are responsible for inspecting and cleaning 73 road segments — about a kilometre each — on a monthly basis. Among the groups that have volunteered their services are Centennial secondary school students, Bar net Lions Club, Tzu Chi Foundation, Austin Heights BIA and Maillardville Residents’ Association. In exchange, the city provides them with basic litter collection gear, vests and garbage bags; it also helps to dispose of the trash.

Coquitlam residents living near Evergreen Line stations will have less parking available to them at their new homes. Under a plan city council has yet to formally endorse, city staff suggest keeping the number of residential parking spots for onebedroom suites to one stall; but for two-bedroom units, parking requirements would drop from the current 1.5 to 1.35 stalls — a reduction of 10%. The move, as presented to the city’s council-in-committee on Monday, comes as the city gears up for the rapid transit line, expected to be running from Lougheed Town Centre to Coquitlam City Centre — via Burquitlam and Port Moody — in four years. It’s also in response to the Metro Vancouver Apar tment Parking Study, released this m o n t h , t h at s h ow s there’s about a 10% oversupply of residential parking near transit hubs. Catherine Mohoruk, Coquitlam’s transportation planning manager, told the committee ICBC data as well as a city study back that information locally.

RIVERVIEW STORIES

Right: Peeking out from between a California Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) and a Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) is the West Lawn building, which opened in April 1913. With Riverview’s population dwindling, West Lawn was permanently closed in 1983 and farming operations at Colony Farm ceased, as well.

Riverview is a trip through mental health care history Impressive but aging buildings dominate the landmark Riverview Hospital site in Coquitlam and their future, like the future of hospital lands, is up in the air

By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

T

he history and evolution of mental health care at Riverview Hospital travel from west to east. On the west end of the property, the nearly 100-year-old West Lawn building languishes like a dowager queen with her paint peeling and her concrete stairs crumbling, a reminder of an era when dorm living, bracing work, peaceful surroundings and wholesome food were considered cures for mental health concerns. It’s at West Lawn where the province’s mentally ill were first housed — 340 male patients on opening day, April 1, 1913 — where the tour of the Riverview Hospital grounds begins. Buildings get progressively younger, and less impressive, the further one travels east along the charmingly named streets of the property’s interior road system (Boxwood Drive, Fern Terrace) until a sharp switchback called Campion Way, where three new buildings offer a glimpse into the present state of mental health care. On this northeastern edge, hidden in the trees, Cottonwood, Connolly and Cypress lodges represent a sharp departure from the modest, aging structures in the middle and east of the property,

buildings where patients were recently housed but are now closed. These newer lodges represent the modern face of health care, officials say, where people can live independently as much as possible, with private rooms, comfortable living spaces, kitchens where they can make their own snacks, and access to community programs a short drive away. But the story of Riverview Hospital as we know it is about to end and, ironically, it’s in one of the oldest buildings where the last remaining patients needing specialized care now reside. In the next few weeks, 40 patients being cared for in the 88-year-old Centre Lawn building will be moved to new facilities in Willow Pavilion in Vancouver and Timber Creek in Surrey. Riverview Hospital — an icon, an enigma, a landmark — will close. Some mental health care will continue on the 244acre property. The Fraser Health-run lodges, built since 2000, will continue to house about 60 people. The film industry and a few non-profit and government agencies lease space on site but for, largely, the giant hospital, once home to more than 4,000 patients — and the Tri-Cities’ leading employer — is shutting down for good. By mid-July all the patients will be gone and about 200 staff who remain will move on to other

postings. Others, including Lynn Cook, will retire. A 34-year-veteran of Riverview Hospital, Cook is taking part in the closing of the facility where she once trained as a young rehabilitation worker. It’s a bittersweet moment for the site operating officer as she says goodbye to colleagues and friends. Still, she’s not sentimental. “We are losing the culture of Riverview,” she said, “but at the same time the first priority is the patients.” The patients will be living in better surroundings, she said. They’ll have more privacy. The younger ones can plug in a phone or an iPod charger (there are no outlets in rooms available to patients at Centre Lawn) and older patients can have

a TV in their own rooms. Bathrooms won’t have to be shared. It will be like living at home but with supports. “[The staff] want patients to succeed. They see the benefits.” Cook marches briskly out of the Administration Building, a grey-stuccoed two-storey structure with dark-panelled walls and Craftsman-style details. Trained in rehabilitation, she had planned to work with seniors but “working in mental health gets in your blood.” She has been on staff since 1978. From the day the hospital opened, Riverview was considered a showcase in therapeutic care, although many of the practices — dorm-style living with

50 people to a ward, work details, such as requiring some patients to clear the property or work on Colony Farm — were discontinued and controversial treatments such as lobotomy surgery to calm patients were carried out into the 1950s but eventually abandoned. Many important drug trials were conducted that helped improve patient treatment, Cook said, and allowed them to be more independent and reintegrate into community life. As an educational facility, Riverview achieved provincial stature and national recognition. A nursing school was established there and some of the buildings, such as the Henry Esson Young building, built in 1976 with an auditorium, held classes until recently. Some of the other buildings on site are being used for educational purposes — but not by the hospital. An example of how important Riverview was in mental health care is the Crease Clinic, whose massive frame with its ornate window treatments and decorative brick work looms over Lougheed Highway. Now used frequently for film productions, Crease was a model for patient care when it opened in 1949, providing short stays of up to four months for patients suffering acute symptoms; it also contained a complete surgical suite, a radiology department and laboratories. Today, Riverview is home to a lush collection of trees, security guards who buzz around the property like pollinating bees and several empty shells of buildings. A former bank, a telephone exchange and recreational hall, complete with a bowling alley, suggest there was once a thriving sense of purpose

and community at Riverview. Now, they are silent because current treatment philosophies no longer encourage withdrawal from community life. At the far eastern edge of the property, three cozy bungalows — Connolly, Cottonwood and Cypress — look well lived-in, neatly maintained and comfortable, boasting cedar siding, large windows and attractive landscaping. Cook is proud of planning, building and piloting the first of these — Connolly Lodge — and says a study still underway shows patients do better and have a better quality of life when they take care of their own needs. “It’s not a magic bullet to cure schizophrenia,” she said, “but it helps people improve in their treatment.” Where a visitor sees a ghost town or an aging film set from a 1950s-era movie, Cook sees a vibrant hub peopled with former colleagues and memories of a time when Riverview was a leading provincial hospital and a centre for mental health research. If anything, she is wistful that those who work in mental health care today and in the future will have little idea of the role the hospital and staff played in establishing best practices. “The site is gorgeous but the site has not cured anybody. It’s the service that people have created and the legacy of caring and compassion.” Acknowledging that much work is still needed to reduce the stigma of mental health and challenges remain in meeting the needs of patients in a community setting, Cook says mental health care is still evolving and Riverview should not be forgotten. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Port Moody seeks third Evergreen Line station By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Moody will ask the Everg reen Line project team to include a third station in its design plans. At Tuesday’s meeting, council approved a revised motion submitted by the West Port Moody Property Owners group, which wants to see a third station near Barnet Highway — or

at least plans for one in the future — i n cl u d e d in the Evergreen Li n e ’s MIKE CLAY Phase 1 design and construction plan. But Mayor Mike Clay said he’s not so sure that’s a good idea. “I don’t have any problem with the re-

quest, and taking it to the province and saying we want the future ability to put a station there, I’ve always said that.” What concerned him was the jump from the group’s original “selffinanced” plan to the new motion, which calls for the group to work with Port Moody on a financing plan for the station. “A s w e ’ r e g o i n g through the [official

community plan] process, to me this is preempting that conversation with residents,” Clay added. The Evergreen Line project team has stated plans for 15,000 new residents are required

to create the ridership needed to justify a third station — as well as $25 million. Adjustments to Barnet Highway to have the station located underneath it are estimated at an extra $10 million.

Clay said the group’s new financing plans include a shift from using development cost charges to amenity charges, which the city requires to build parks, trails and other city services.

He also expressed concern the motion would commit Port Moody to incorporating plans for a third station — as well as the associated increased density — to its ongoing OCP review. spayne@tricitynews.com

PoMo asks for ‘opt-out’ option for smart meters By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Moody will require BC Hydro to offer Port Moody residents an “opt-out” option for the smart meters now being installed. C o u n . Ro s e m a r y Small’s lengthy motion on the matter was passed at Tuesday’s council meeting despite the efforts of Mayor Mike Clay to curtail the move. “The entire thing is non-jurisdictional to the city,” Clay said in an interview. “We don’t have any power to regulate or enforce anything on smart meters.” Besides, Clay said, Port Moody has already added its voice to the Union of B.C. Municipalities motion that went to the provincial government. “That’s how you do

things w h e n you have concerns at the provincial level, through SMALL t h e UBCM,” Clay said. “We don’t have any authority to tell BC Hydro what they can and can’t do.” Small introduced the motion — preceded by seven clauses regarding concer ns of the health, privacy and security issues related to smart meters — at a council meeting earlier this month. The motion will have Port Moody request BC Hydro: • offer opt-out options at no cost to consumers; • assure household privacy and agree not to sell any data to private companies; • and provide the

Concern over transit issues, survey says An Ipsos Reid survey shows Port Moody residents are happy with life in the City of the Arts, but transportation issues remain the biggest concern. The survey of 401 people interviewed in May showed 54% of respondents felt getting around was the biggest issue, followed by growth (14%) and taxation and government spending (13%). Almost everyone (99%) felt their quality of life was good (37%) or very good (62%). Most people (64%) felt their quality of life had stayed the same in the last three years but for those who felt it had improved (22%), they cited more shopping opportunities (19%), amenities (18%) and growth and development (17%). And the reasons why life had worsened? The top reason was too much traffic (45%), followed by growth and development (44%) and high taxes (9%). The full survey results are available online at www.cityofportmoody.ca. spayne@tricitynews.com

city with all locations of smart meter collector units and hubs, as well as information on smart meter banks and data on radio-frequency emissions exposure. The motion also calls for the city to report the infor mation collected, as well as concerns on the health impact of smart meters, to the province’s chief medical officer and the chief medical officer of Vancouver Coastal Health. B C H yd r o i s e x pected to install about 80,000 smart meters in the Tri-Cities starting this month and finishing in the fall. The new devices are touted as a way to restore power more quickly during an

outage, keep rates low by increasing efficiency and reducing wasted electricity and giving residents a way to conserve energy. Hydro spokesperson Greg Alexis said if customers have concerns about the smart meter, they’ll hold off on installation while they work to address any issues. “It is not viable to offer an opt-out option because smart meters are required to renew the electrical grid,” he wrote in an email. Alexis added that having some people opt out would increase costs because Hydro would have to operate two systems. spayne@tricitynews.com

PoCo art plan gets approved Stories by Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A public art policy that will encourage creativity and artistic elements when the city of Port Coquitlam makes development decisions was approved Monday by council. With the approval, city staff can move forward with a vision statement and guiding principles for the selection and creation of public art in the municipality.

FILE PHOTO

The mural above was painted at the new highrise located next to Lions Park in Port Coquitlam. “We will certainly see the benefits of this in the future,” Coun. Michael Wright said during Monday’s meeting. “It will put Port Moody on notice that

the city of the arts is moving further east.” Larry Wheeler, the city’s acting director of parks and recreation, told The Tri-City News earlier this month the

policy formalizes the city’s decision-making process around choosing and paying for public art. Whether the city is building a bridge, sidewalk or other types of infrastructure, he said, opportunities exist to give projects more artistic flare. Many opportunities are low-cost, Wheeler added, and developers and local businesses are being encouraged to incorporate creative elements into their projects.

Old pub could be city’s next daycare from the surrounding neighbourhood. “We are concerned with how it might impact the residents living in the nearby apartment buildings,” he said during Monday’s council meeting. He later added, “It seems that residents would prefer a child care facility over a neighbourhood pub.” If the city approves the proposal, the Wilson Avenue daycare would be the largest in the municipality, ahead of one in Riverwood Gate that is licensed to handle 73 children. The application also proposes several changes to the site, including

What was once a 19-and-up business could soon be transformed into a place for kids. The owners of the former Eclipse Bar and Grill on Wilson Avenue in Port Coquitlam want to turn the upstairs of the site into a daycare for up to 74 children. The bottom floor would be mainly reserved for offices. Because the application requires a development variance permit, the matter will have to go to a public hearing. But Coun. Michael Wright, chair of PoCo’s smart growth committee, said so far there has been little opposition

paving the back parking area and replacing the awnings at the front of the building. The existing second-floor balcony would be converted into two outdoor play areas. The property was built in 1995 as a large restaurant and pub but the latest venture to occupy the building ceased operation more than a year ago. While all councillors said they supported sending the proposal to a public hearing, Coun. Dean Washington said he is disappointed the city’s downtown would be losing an entertainment venue. “Although it is a good

When honeybees are in trouble, so are we GREEN SCENE Elaine Golds Bees are crucial to what we eat

W

e are now into the summer season, when many locally grown fresh foods become available at farmers’ markets and in stores. I appreciate the farmers who produce such nutritious and delicious food but these men and women have a crucial partner in their efforts: the under-appreciated honeybee. Honeybees perform the incredibly useful service of pollination, which is essential for a substantial portion of the food we eat. Other animals can also pollinate flowers — including bats in the tropics, hummingbirds and a variety of insects including moths, beetles, flies, bumblebees and several species of solitary bees including mason bees. But the domesticated honeybee is the true workhorse amongst all these important pollinators. It is estimated honeybees are now responsible for

Honeybees and other wild pollinators provide critical pollination services for an estimated one third of the food we eat. the production of more than $44 billion worth of food and other products in North America every year. Because honeybees over-winter in their hives with only a slightly reduced population, they long ago evolved the technique of building up stores of honey and pollen to carry them through the colder months, when flowers are not in bloom. People soon learned to exploit this rich source of sweet food as well as the useful beeswax and other

products. Thousands of years ago, people in ancient Egypt and India learned to cultivate honeybees. Their techniques eventually spread around the Mediterranean and into Europe. During the medieval period, beeswax was much in demand for candle-making so monks in monasteries typically maintained hives of domesticated honeybees. The first European settlers brought honeybees to the Americas. Some of these honeybees

escaped from the domesticated hives and became established as feral populations across the continent. The art of domestic beekeeping made a great leap forward in the 1850s, when a Pennsylvanian minister named Langstroth developed his novel hive system of removable rectangular boxes that is still used today by beekeepers around the world. Because honeybees are critical pollinators for approximately one third of the food we eat,

Some of the most efficient Furnaces and Heat Pumps on the market.

beekeeping has now become big business. Farmers who grow nuts, soya beans, carrots, onions, broccoli, sunflowers, avocados, peaches, melons, strawberries or blueberries, to mention a few, all require fields full of honeybees for efficient crop production. In the U.S.A., hives are trucked in semi-trailers across the continent on a regular basis. For example, in February, essentially all the commercial hives in the western states can be found in the almond groves of California. In Canada, beehives from Alberta are shipped to B.C. during the blueberry pollination season. Alarmingly, honeybees now appear to be suffering massive population declines, not only in North America but around the world. This decline has been so precipitous and so poorly understood that, in March 2011, the United Nations issued a warning that our ability to produce an adequate food supply for the human race could be at risk if the decline in pollinator populations is not stopped. While impacts on domestic honeybees are often to easiest to detect,

other wild pollinators are also disappearing from the landscape. Some of the reasons for these declines are easy to understand while, for others, the causes remain elusive. Certainly, the application of pesticides to crops can have a huge impact on honeybee populations. One of the worst examples is the province of Sichuan, China, where pear orchards are abundant. Years of organophosphate pesticide (which contains carcinogens) use has killed all the bees. Residues of these chemicals remain so high that bees cannot be safely re-introduced to these orchards. Consequently, these pear trees must now be pollinated in a labourintensive manner by human hands often by migrant women and children who are obviously working under hazardous conditions. In addition, some of the newer pesticides, mainly the neonicotinoids, are also thought to pose grave risks for many insect pollinators. And pesticide use is hardly the only concern. A number of strange new diseases have been having devastating

impacts on bee colonies in recent years. These include the Varroa mite, an acute paralysis virus, a strange malady called Colony Collapse Disorder and a Nosema fungus. These diseases could be transmitted to wild pollinators when they visit the same blossoms as sick honeybees. The 2011 UN report recommended a greater emphasis on maintaining natural habitat as areas of refuge for pollinators and more focus on the disease-spreading hazards associated with transporting bees all over the world. This report also expressed the hope that the Rio+20 Conference (which was held last week) would bring more attention to this urgent problem. Sadly, this conference has now been characterized as “a wash-out” and “epic failure.” Maybe our elected officials will have to get hungry before they can be convinced of the need to take action on this very serious problem.

HELPING HANDS

A recital on Sunday to raise money for scholarships for advanced piano students in the Tri-Cities tapped in $2,500. The show, titled Students Helping Students, was held June 24 at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre and was hosted by the Yarilo Music Society (www. yarilo music.com), which is run by Port Moody music couple Gregory Myers and Anna Levy. Place des Arts’ board director

Manuel Bernaschek, of Showcase Pianos, also organized a Fazioli grand piano to be at the event for the seven young performers.

ARTS ADVISOR

The former executive

director for the TriCities’ ArtsConnect has been named to the city of Port Moody’s arts and culture committee. At Tuesday’s city council meeting, Mayor Mike Clay officially appointed Helen Daniels

PADDLE POWER – AND DUCT TAPE First Anmore Cub Scouts held their wrap-up barbecue on a rainy evening June 22 with a paddle on Buntzen Lake — using cardboard canoes. Cubs and their parents spent several evenings working on the canoes (made of cardboard, duct tape and packing tape) before the event. “Some of the canoes were a little tippy,” Lori Bennett wrote in an email to The Tri-City News, “but most cubs managed to paddle them without going for a swim.”

Beans, beans the... vitamin-rich veggie IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter

B

eans are one of the really healthy veggies, containing vitamins A, B and C, calcium, phosphorous, iron, lots of fibre and they have only 31 calories per cup. Not only that but amino acids and folic acid are released as we digest them, helping in the development of red blood cells, the nervous system and digestion. You didn’t know they were this good for you did you? There are three types of beans: the snap types (the green and yellow varieties we all grow); green shelling beans (like broad beans); and the dry shell varieties (like the kidney types). Most popular, of course, are the snap types, both bush and pole. This, however, has not always been the case. For centuries, snap beans (referring to the snapping sound they make when broken) were not that well liked because the seam along the pod was rather tough, hence the name ‘string’ bean. We have to thank Calvin Keeny, a New Yorker whose breeding efforts resulted in the first really tasty and tender ‘stringless’ bean Burpee’s ‘Stringless Green Pod’. Introduced in 1898, this bean helped Calvin become known as ‘The Father of the Stringless Bean’. What a title. The ‘Tender Green’ variety, which we still see on racks today, was introduced in 1925. It wasn’t until 1962 that the fabulous ‘Bush Blue Lake’ was developed. It is still one of the top varieties today and is both flavourful and tender.

Good pole beans arrived even earlier with the introduction of ‘Kentucky Wonder’ in 1877 by the Ferry-Morse Seed Company. A cross between ‘Kentucky Wonder’ and ‘Blue Lake’ resulted in a 1991 All American Selection, ‘Kentucky Blue’, one of the best pole varieties today. Beans, by the way, are not hybrids. They are produced as open pollinated crops in Northwestern USA. All beans are legumes, like peas and fix nitrogen in the soil as they grow, making them an important nutrient crop. Now that beans have earned the recognition they deserve, we need to be a little more creative in how we grow them. They make wonderful container plants in limited space gardens, but be innovative. You need a pot the size of a traditional half barrel. Make an eight foot teepee with three to five bamboo canes, plant the seeds at the base of the canes and watch the pole beans grow. For a much more beautiful effect, alternate your favourite flavourful varieties with some beautiful red flowered ‘Scarlet Runner’ beans. You might also plant some bush types around the base, blending your favourite green bush, yellow wax and the purple ‘Royal Burgundy’. You can have it all — flavour, variety, a longer harvest period and lots of colour. Speaking of innovation, why not make your garden a showpiece with trellises, pyramids, archways and pergolas planted with various climbing beans and other vegetable vines. I love the vegetable garden at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania where they make kids huts out of willow and use beans to smother these little hideaways with colour, shade and ready made snacks.

Beans are one of the easiest vegetables to grow, but the weather needs to be good and warm before they are planted. Consistent night temperatures of 13 to 16 C are the minimum for beans to grow instead of rotting. Gently push the seed about 1½ inches (2 to 3 cm) into the soil and space bush beans about 3 to 4 inches (8 to 10 cm) apart. You don’t need a lot of plants to get a great crop, usually a quarter or half a packet will do. Repeated plantings every two or three weeks will give you continuous cropping. I sow my last crop about midJuly and enjoy beans well into October. Many growers are now producing them in pots, saving you about three weeks of growing time — a good idea this year because of the nasty spring weather. If summer drought becomes a problem, beans are a smart crop because all they need is one inch of water per week. All watering should be done early in the day to keep the foliage dry at night. Don’t harvest or work around beans when it’s wet for fear of spreading a fungus-like rust. Beans are also light feeders. If you have enriched the soil with well rotted manures and quality compost, they will require little else. I told you they were easy. It’s best to harvest snap beans when the pods are just starting to plump up and are four to

five inches long. Lima beans should be picked when the pods are really puffy but before the seeds yellow. Be careful when harvesting beans to cut or pick the pods off without destroying the main stems. If you stop harvesting, most beans will stop producing, so keep picking. Apart from being easy to grow, colourful and good tasting, bean varieties have really expanded. It might be fun to try a few new ones. ‘Dolicho Del Metro’, otherwise know as ‘The Yard Long Bean’, is an interesting subtropical that produces delicious 18 to 24 inch pods about the size of a pencil. They are stringless, sweet, crisp and ideal for your stir fry dishes. ‘Royal Burgundy’ has five inch purple pods that look and taste wonderful in salads. After cooking for two minutes, they turn green with a purple tinge. Their flowers are also purple. ‘Borlotto’ is a striking red and white flowering variety with delicious ten inch (25 cm) pods. It’s a golden oldie heritage pole bean from the 19th century. ‘Purple Peacock’ is another beauty with deep purple pods and light purple flowers. The added bonus is its ability to handle more cold than other varieties, becoming one of the earliest to enjoy in our garden. Burpee’s ‘Green ‘n Gold’ beans produce a blend of beautiful and colourful bush beans that really colour up the plant.

Fed dera al goovernment announces a set of new mortgage rules

fewer first-time buyers The federal government announced new rules for mortgages last week, including changing the maximum mortgage amortization period from 30 years to 25. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty also announced that insured mortgages will only be available to buyers purchasing a home for under $1 million. “We want people to make sure that when they purchase the most important purchase they’ll probably ever make in their life, that they do so in a prudent way,” says Flaherty. The government expects that less than five per cent of new home purchasers will be affected

by the changes, but the Canadian Home Builders’ Association sees it having repercussions on a certain demographic. “The shorter maximum mortgage amortization period will reduce housing demand by eroding affordability,” says CHBA President Ron Olson. “For those who would otherwise have selected a 30-year amortization, it will take additional income each month to service new mortgage debt. Some potential new home buyers will no longer qualify, and this will disproportionately affect younger firsttime home buyers.” The changes will take effect on July 9.

residents don’t need to take their cars out as often. The opening of the Canada Line and the subsequent success of the Marine Gateway project has proven this conclusion, and Evergreen’s proximity to the new SkyTrain line is something of which Bosa is very proud. “The access to SkyTrain is just amazing,” says Avitan. Evergreen is within walking distance of several neighbourhood amenities, including restaurants and shopping at Coquitlam Centre. A Douglas College campus is also close by, along with elementary and secondary schools. If you’re looking for a bit of outdoor time,

several parks and Lafarge Lake are also in the area. The Bosa name is one of the reasons that people have been pre-registering before the homes officially open for sale. “Bosa has quite a following. (They) do it right the first time,” says Avitan. “People feel very comfortable with that.” The sales centre is at 3005 Glen Drive in Coquitlam, and is open from noon to 6 p.m. every day. Homes at Evergreen start at $265,900. For more information, visit www.bosaproperties. com/evergreen or call 604-942-2672.

Bosa Properties brings g Evergreen to Coquitlam by Kerry Vital

Bosa Properties brings livability to Coquitlam with their newest project, Evergreen. Located just steps from TransLink’s upcoming Evergreen Line, the condominium tower will be bringing more than beautiful homes to the table. “There really is something for everybody,” says sales manager Madonna Avitan. With 195 homes in a variety of one- and two-bedroom plans, there is a home to suit every taste. Whether you’re looking for a one-bedroom with a work space or den or a two-bedroom penthouse with two bathrooms, you will be sure to find the perfect home. Some of the suites are part of the Evergreen Estate Collection, which feature higher ceilings, expansive outdoor balconies (some over 600 square feet) and larger floorplans. “There’s some exclusivity about them,” says Avitan. A particularly impressive feature at Evergreen is the kitchen. Imported from Italy, the Armony kitchens include an Italian woodgrain and stainless-steel backsplash that lends a touch of elegance to the space, while the solid composite stone countertops are chic and modern. The stainlesssteel appliances are complemented by the dramatic brushed chrome lighting in the cooking area and breakfast bar, while the recessed halogen valance lighting in the cabinets makes it easy to find everything you need. The glass-laminated upper cabinet doors with their integral pulls offer plenty of storage space. Moving into the bathrooms, the solid stone countertops and porcelain tile flooring are quiet odes to luxury. The master ensuite features a gorgeous soaker tub or a walk-in shower with a full-height tile surround. The recessed stone vanity shelf in the tub or shower is just one of the many convenient little touches at Evergreen. The imported Armony vanity with dual storage drawers is another beautiful touch, paired with a designer storage shelving unit beside it. The recessed halogen lighting continues in here to illuminate the toilet, sink and tub or shower, and the decorative polished chrome towel bars and paper holders are yet another little detail that adds up to a beautiful whole. Bosa has included a great set of amenities in Evergreen, including a

gym, an entertainment lounge and an open outdoor terrace with a barbecue area and firepit, Avitan says. Owners are also able to barbecue on their own balconies. Evergreen is the fourth and final building in Bosa’s Westwood Village neighbourhood, following on the heels of Altamont, Claremont and Edgemont. These past phases have built up a beautiful neighbourhood around them, so buyers at Evergreen will be able to join an established community. “The neighbourhood has been planned for a long time,” says Avitan. With it’s fantastic location along rapid transit, Evergreen is able to take advantage of easy accessibility to the entire Lower Mainland. Communities located along SkyTrain lines often experience greater public safety due to increased pedestrian traffic, and life is often more environmentally friendly as

LAST DAY

562 Clarke Rd. (@Como Lake) Coquitlam

Frieda and Judi Are RETIRING! It’s with both joy and sadness that we announce the retirement of two of our long time employees of

Team Harpo McDonald’s: Frieda Dolinski and Judi Lefaive Frieda started her career with McDonald’s in September 1989. She quickly took on the position of opening manager at the Lougheed Walmart Location. Frieda is often thought of as a mother figure at work. She always warmly greets her fellow employees and customers as though they are a part of her family. We are all proud of her accomplishments over the years, especially when it comes to her dedication to McHappy Day. For her retirement Frieda plans on taking an Alaskan cruise and relaxing with her family. Judi first started on September 8, 1981 when minimum wage was $2.95/hr. She was first hired to be a hostess. As the Head Hostess, she was put in charge in making the birthday program run smoothly and that all crew knew what upcoming promotions were. Judi took the time to get to know our regular customers as well as the new ones. All managers that have worked with her will tell you her number one concern is always the customers. Judi paid special attention to detail cleanliness in the lobby, making sure that the environment was clean and welcoming for all ages of our customers. She made sure every kid was treated like a star.

Owner Operators James and Tracy and all your Co-workers would like to join together and THANK-YOU for your Devoted Service and Hard Work, over the past 3 decades.

We wish you all the best in your Future endeavors! We invite all of Frieda and Judi’s Friends and Customers to please come out and join us for a FOND FAREWELL, on July the 3rd, between 3:30 and 4:30 pm

Consider your bike for local trips.

Water co conservation is important to everyone - it not only benefits our natura natural ecosystems, but it also saves money.

Residential, multi-family, commercial, industrial and institutional properties are all required to follow these regulations. These restrictions also help to: ™ Sustain water for present and future generations. ™ Accommodate for the region’s inability to capture, store and distribute water because of the limited capacity of the City’s watersheds. ™ Stabilize the increase in water consumption that takes place during the summer months. ™ Maintain consistent water pressure to customers. There are still lots of ways for people to have fun in the water in Coquitlam over the summer months with our four pools (two are outdoor) and 1 wading pool and 5 spray parks. There are lessons for all age levels, themed events, drop-in times, swim camps, sponsored free swims and lowcost opportunities. Pick up the Parks Recreation and Culture Summer Aquatics guide, or visit the City’s website for more information and online registration. Everyone can have fun in the summer sun and keep our gardens green while taking care of our environment.

Hot Reds win five, retire 5

CRUNCH TIME Vincent Ricci of the Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs is jarred into the boards by a Burnaby Jr. Lakers’ opponent during a recent B.C. Junior A lacrosse league game at Poirier Sports Complex. The Jr. A’s snapped a 3-3 deadlock Wednesday by out-scoring the PoCo Saints 10-2 in the second period on way to a lopsided 16-6 win over their Tri-City rivals. AMELIA APPELS B.C. JUNIOR A LACROSSE LEAGUE

Wake-up call spurs Jr. A’s past Saints PoCo Saints stayed step for step with the fast-charging Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs for one period Wednesday. Then the Jr. A’s got an earful and kicked it into overdrive. Coquitlam out-scored the Saints 10-2 in the second frame and scampered to a 16-6 triumph in B.C. Junior A lacrosse league action at Poirier Sports Complex. The Jr. A’s completely dominated the middle stanza, out-shooting PoCo 28-13 and, eventually, 59-38 overall. Jr. A’s head coach Neil Dinsdale had some choice words after the first frame for his players, who dropped a stunning 3-2 decision to the Saints two weeks ago in Coquitlam. “I told them to wake the [bleep] up,”

Dinsdale said curtly. “Sometimes, simple is best.” It worked. The Jr. A’s pumped in nine straight markers in a 13-minute span, with Wesley Berg accounting for four of those. The win boosted the first-place Jr. A’s to 14-3-0, while fourth-place PoCo dipped to 9-8-0. “Coquitlam wanted it real bad. They were a bit embarrassed by the last [loss to us],” said Saints general manager Reg Thompson. “Our guys didn’t do what we did the last time, which was contain them and not let them run around. “I would say 10 of their goals were from their guys going right down the middle.” Meanwhile, the New Westminster Jr. Salmonbellies sit 12-4-0 behind the Jr. A’s, with the 10-5-1 Delta Islanders

still in hot playoff pursuit in the eightteam loop. “There’s plenty of incentive for us,” Dinsdale insisted. “[The league’s] unfolding as we thought it would... [with] us, New West and Delta in the top three spots. It’s not just a matter of finishing first in the regular season, it’s also finishing first in order to play the fourth-place team. [The series between] second and third is going to be a battle.” With four games remaining in their 21-game schedule, the Saints are currently tied in points for the fourth and final playoff spot with the Langley Jr. Thunder, both with 18, while the Victoria Jr. Shamrocks are close behind with 14. “We’re not good enough to take things for granted,” Thompson added. “We have to start working harder,

STOP! LOOK! Open July 1 11am-6pm

CLEEARRANCE CENTRE

and it starts in practice. If you screw around in practice, it’s going to show in the games.” Berg led the Jr. A’s with five goals and two assists Wednesday. Robert Church and Ben McIntosh netted four markers apiece for the winners, who got two more from Matthew Dinsdale. Vincent Ricci bagged Coquitlam’s other goal. Garrett Chan paced PoCo with three goals, while Connor Goodwin notched a goal and four assists. Cory Takahara and Matt Delmonico also struck net in a losing cause. The Saints play a pair of pivotal games on the weekend, when they visit the Islanders in Ladner on Saturday before facing Victoria on Sunday at PoCo Rec Centre, 5 p.m. Also Sunday, the Jr. A’s travel to Burnaby to play the 3-13-0 Jr. Lakers.

Coquitlam Reds are on roll. The squad won their five straight B.C. Premier Baseball League game Sunday following a doubleheader sweep of t h e Va n c o u ve r Cannons at Mundy Park. The result boosted the Reds to 19-17 in seventh spot in the 14-team loop. The Reds’ Max Hollingworth cranked a double and drove in two runs as his squad doubled the Cannons 6-3 in the opening game. D a r r e n Honeysett also doubled for the Reds, who trailed 2-1 before exploding for five runs in the bottom of the fifth inning. Coquitlam got two-hit pitching over six innings from winner Jeff Heidema. In the second game, the Reds again came from behind, with a complete-game four-hitter from p i t ch e r Au s t i n MacDonald. BA S E L I N E S : Between g ames Sunday, the Reds re t i re d fo r m e r long-time assistant coach Henry Somers’ No. 5 jersey. Somers retired last year after 12 seasons with the squad.

Summer fishing can net you majestic memories that last a lifetime TIGHT LINES Jeff Weltz Take time to soak up season

I

know it doesn’t feel like it, but summer started last Thursday, marking this as the first official long

weekend of the summer. “I first learned to fish in summer holidays from school and never gave any thought to theories that it might not be the best time to fish... the stream was there, the fish were in it and fish in a stream were to be tempted, risen, hooked and landed. If they chose to lie on the bottom through the heat

of the day, there would be a hatch later and they would come up.” –– from Roderick Haig-Brown’s book, Fisherman’s Summer. While many of us fish year round, summer tends to be the beginning of high season. For me, summer holds many fond memories of stalking trophy fish on warm evenings during fire red sunsets.

Those of us who have tried to boat a 30-pound Lake Erie rainbow, during the three-week long Ontario Great Lakes derby, know what I am talking about, as do those who pursue the coho-sized rainbows that rise aggressively in many of our B.C. rivers during the stonefly hatch. Other have memories bathed in the rosy hue

of a red sun as it sinks into the sea beyond the line of fishing boats, while rod and reel strain heavily under the pulse of strong and healthy Tyee. Summer is a season like no other, as memories made in this moment can last a lifetime. Make time for it, because like that trophy fish you missed, it will be gone all too soon.

THE REPORT

With sun in the forecast, our Lower Mainland lake fishing looks good for the weekend. 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 hairCaddis, Black Gnat, Griffith Gnat or Lady McConnel. For kokanee try Red Ibis, Double Trued, Blood Worm, San Juan Worm, Red Spratley or Red Carey.

BIG SHOT Alex Kerfoot of the Coquitlam Express, seen here scoring for Canada West versus Sweden in last year’s World Junior A Challenge hockey tournament in Langley, was chosen in the fifth round (150th overall) by the New Jersey Devils in last weekend’s NHL entry draft in Pittsburgh.
