Smart meter info? About time By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A BC Hydro presentation on smart meters came far too late for many Port M o o dy a n d Po r t Coquitlam councillors, who said the information would have proved helpful when the technology was first introduced. “The scary part is how this was put upon the public without educating the public,” said PoMo Coun. Bob Elliott. “As a retired employee of BC Hydro, it’s a little embarrassing.” Coun. Rosemary Small, who initiated a motion opposing smart meters and asking BC Hydro to offer customers an opt-out option at no expense, had several questions ready for Hydro communications manager Cindy Verschoor at Tuesday’s Port Moody council meeting, starting with the health concerns. “The meter transmits for less than a minute a day,” Verschoor said, using a 900-megahertz radio signal with a power of one watt; data is transmitted to a collector three times a day, which then sends the data to BC Hydro, also at 900 megahertz and one watt. “This building has an active Wi-Fi network,” Verschoor said of PoMo city hall. “So, by comparison, four minutes in this building is worth one year of a smart meter.” see LOW-IMPACT, LOW IMPACT, page 4

Adults on alert around water Three drownings prompt warning from city staff By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Coquitlam lifeguards and aquatic supervisors are keeping an extra sharp eye on kids in municipal pools after three B.C. residents drowned this week. Jason Blood, Coquitlam’s aquatics manager, said the recent swimming deaths were a topic of conversation

at the weekly program supervisors’ meeting and city staff have been reminded to be especially vigilant when young children are in and around the water. “We have told our staff to be courteous when telling patrons about the situations that can happen, and the rules and the rationale,” he said. Blood said Coquitlam has a policy that adults and guardians must be within arm’s reach of their child; lifeguards are trained to alert parents when their young one is too far away.

“In the summer especially, it’s good advice to keep your children close and under direct supervision,” he said, adding swimming lessons for children start as young as six months in Coquitlam. “There’s valuable water-safety education in those sessions for children and parents about how to stay safe.” Blood also recommends parents get lifeguards to help strap personal flotation devices on kids so they fit correctly. see COQ. STEPS UP UP,, page 14

Tips for staying safe on the water The Canadian Red Cross provides the following tips on how to avoid waterrelated injuries: • Ensure children are supervised, whether at home or on vacation; adult supervision is the best protection for children, even for kids who can swim. • Make sure your backyard pool is fully fenced, with a self-clos-

ing, self-latching gate. • When not using your home pool, clear all toys out of the water and away from the edge. • Ensure you have emergency equipment, including a first aid kit and a phone in the immediate pool area. • When boating, ensure everyone on board wears — properly fastened — a lifejacket.

• Don’t consume alcohol before or during swimming or boating activities. • Be cautious about swimming in currents. • Get trained through swimming and water safety lessons; get your Pleasure Craft Operator Card if you operate a boat; know how to respond in an emergency by taking first aid lessons.

Vernon plane crash cause will take time to determine

The investigation into Saturday’s plane crash at Marshall Field in Vernon that killed two people — including one Tri-City man — could take some time. A T ranspor tation Safety Board of Canada official said investigations into plane crashes similar to the one Saturday typically take up to a year to determine the official cause. Killed in the crash, which happened just after 1 p.m. shortly after taking off from the Vernon Airport, were two brothers-in-law,

pilot James Langley, 59, of Kelowna, and his passenger, Karim Makalai, 53, of Port Moody; they were married to sisters Sheneez Makalai and Shaida Langley. Weather conditions were very good at the time of the crash, with sunshine and clear skies. It’s believed the pair stopped in Vernon to refuel the plane but where they were heading and where the flight originated from, has not yet been released by officials. newsroom@tricitynews.com

‘Why would they let him out?’ dad asks ‘They can’t hold him indefinitely,’ Gord Penner says By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A detention review for Ryan Crossley, the young man who killed Port Coquitlam’s Jesse Penner in 2006, will be held next week. But Penner’s father does not believe his release is imminent. Gord Penner said he is more concerned about Dec. 18, when Crossley’s six-year sentence comes to an end and Corrections Canada is no longer able to keep him in custody. “They can’t hold him indefinitely,” he said. “I know it is coming. They are getting me ready for it.” After last year’s detention review, the Parole Board of Canada said Crossley would not be let out early because he committed numerous violent acts while behind bars. The board noted that in his five years in jail, the 22-yearold has yet to complete

any programming to address his propensity for violence or his substance abuse issues. “You continue to endanger the safety of others, on occasion spontaneously but often with some level of pre-planning, and frequently involving the use of weapons,” the board said in its reasons for decision. “You do not display a genuine remorse for the victims and clearly hold a personal belief that accepts and endorses violence.” After his statutory release this winter, Crossley will be free and neither the parole board nor the Correctional Service of Canada will have any authority over him. The lack of supervision while Crossley reenters society has Penner fearing the worst. “Here we are getting ready to release him so he can kill again,” Penner said. “They know damn well what he is going to do. If someone else gets hurt by this guy, I’m going to hate to say, ‘I told you so.’” Jesse Penner was trying to break up a fight in 2006 when he

Jesse Penner (shown above in a photo at the scene of a memorial) was stabbed to death in 2006 by a teenage Ryan Crossley. The young man, who has committed acts of violence behind bars, is likely to be released in December. was stabbed multiple times by Crossley; he was taken to hospital but later died from his wounds. Gord Penner points out that Crossley, who was 16 at the time of his

conviction, was on supervised release awaiting sentencing — with conditions that he not possess a weapon and he obey a curfew — for another offence. “Why would they

let him out?” he said. “They let him out once and he killed. He was on bail when he murdered my son.” Crossley was initially eligible for automatic release in October 2010

after serving two thirds of his six-year sentence. But due to his behaviour behind bars, the parole board decided to use a legal provision that allows it to keep a prisoner incarcerated

beyond his automatic release date. A second release date was scheduled for June 18 but six months was added to his sentence for violence behind bars. S p o ke s p e o p l e f o r Cor rections Canada and the Parole Board of Canada told The Tri-City News that they would not comment on crimes carried out by Crossley while behind bars. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Low-impact tech: hydro S h e a d d e d : “A n d if you stood next to [a smart meter] for 20 years without moving, at 20 cm away, it’s the equivalent of a 30-minute cell phone call or less.� BC Hydro’s smart meters have been tested extensively and repeatedly by an independent engineering company and found to be an extremely low-impact technology, Verschoor said, noting the engineers’ signed reports are available on the Hydro website for inspection. She also reassured Small regarding her concerns on the potential for time-of-use billing, which has been implemented in Ontario. Because B.C. operates on 93% hydroelectric power, she told the councillor, the system can regulate the flow of water to meet consumers’ needs, making timeof-use billing unnecessary. BC Hydro is replacing the old technology with smart meters as part of a comprehensive infrastructure upgrade, Verschoor said, noting the system hasn’t been upgraded in decades and no longer supports the needs of consumers or the expected 50% increase in demand over the next 20 years. The meters are expected to reduce hydro rates, improve safety and help get the lights back on faster in case of an outage. Customers will be able to see their usage by logging on to their BC Hydro account online, with the aim of encouraging people to conserve energy. “We don’t collect data about what you were doing or what you were using the electricity for; the technology is simply not capable of that,� Verschoor said, adding customers who can monitor their usage tend to save up to 15%. The system upgrades will also allow for a twoway transfer of electricity on the grid for solar panels and electric vehicles. The $930-million program will create $1.6 billion in savings over the next 20 years. With maintenance costs factored in, Verschoor said, $520 million will be saved. Over-billing issues have largely proved false, Verschoor said. Each complaint is investigated and to date, six bills have been adjusted due to a smart meter — four down and two up. The main issue, she added, is that customers often mistakenly compare bills between winter and summer, when usage is far lower.

Historical Highlights The imminent arrival of the railway caused rampant speculation. In 1885 a lot at Clarke and Queens Sts was bought for $15 and sold later the same year for $1,000. Port Moody was expected to become the biggest town in the west until the railway company decided to extend the rail line from Port Moody to Vancouver, a new terminus several kilometres farther west. Company executives thought Port Moody was too narrow for expansion. Sponsored by the

Examining bills from similar seasons year to year shows the postsmart meter bills are accurate, Verschoor said. Residents who don’t want a smart meter installed are asked to contact BC Hydro to discuss their concerns. “We have been very successful in addressing consumers’ concerns to date,� Verschoor said, noting no decisions have been made in relation to customers who refuse the new meters. “The cost of maintaining a dual system would have to be borne by all ratepayers,� Verschoor said. “It would be like your constituents want-

Evergreen Line rejects PoMo station request Costs and delays would be caused by extra station By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The Evergreen Line project team has turned down Port Moody council’s request for a third station at the western edge of the city. A letter from the project team’s PoMo segment manager, Wendy Itagawa, said changing the location of a future west station, from the Queen Street one already approved to one at the northern end of the tunnel portal, would pose several problems, including schedule delays as well as environmental, safety and cost impacts. Technically, locating a station at the north portal would require raising Barnet Highway by three meters, which would incur significant construction and traffic impacts as well as increased costs, Itagawa states in a letter to the city. Given that proposals for the Evergreen Line are already being considered based on the approved alignment and station locations, changing the station location would delay the awarding of the contract and the start of construction, thus pushing back the planned 2016 completion date. It would also require amending t h e E nv i ro n m e n t a l

TRI-CITY NEWS FILE PHOTO

A request for a western Evergreen Line station in Port Moody was shot down by the project’s local manager. Assessment Office certificate, which was approved in early 2011 based on the preliminary design. The north portal location poses environmental risks on the sensitive area at Schoolhouse Creek, the letter notes, and could be a safety risk given the nearby active industrial area. Even adjusting the alignment design to allow for a future station at the north portal would increase costs, according to Itagawa.

Jillian Hull, who represents a group called the West Port Moody Property Owners Group, said she was disappointed to see the Evergreen Line project team’s response but hopes a station can be built further west than Queen Street. “I hope council sees the wisdom of pursuing negotiations, which would allow good solutions to flow from good design, instead of bad solutions from bad design,” Hull said.

But Wendy Swalwell, who lives across from the for mer Andres Winery site, again expressed concerns that the West Port Moody Property Owners are, in fact, a special interest group consisting mainly of investors and developers eager to transform that end of the city to a home for 15,000 new residents. She questioned why a majority of council members were so quick to support the group’s motion, particularly if it meant adding a huge a m o u n t o f d e n s i ty to west Port Moody to justify a third station, the cost of which might have to be borne by the city. “The most irresponsible thing... councillors can do is to blindly vote for something they were not directed to do by their constituents,” Swalwell said. spayne@tricitynews.com

OK for Burke Mt. home A Burke Mountain landowner who wants to build a house on a lot he has owned for 40 years will finally be able to break ground. In January — after two years of engineering studies by the owner — Coquitlam city council threw out Don Stubbert’s plan to build a three-storey, 3,000-square foot house

on a vacant lot at Burke Mountain Street and Wilkie Avenue, saying he was trying to jam too much onto the land. Stubbert, who has owned the property since 1972, went back to the drawing board and, this week, presented a revised proposal for a smaller single-family house that, according

to city documents, will be 2,125 sq. ft., is not as tall and doesn’t have a secondary suite. It also has bigger setbacks from the property line. City council unanimously supported the proposal (Coun. Brent Asmundson excused himself from the debate as he lives nearby). jwarren@tricitynews.com

PM council says ‘No’ to pipelines, tankers By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Port Moody resolution opposing any increase in oil tanker traffic in B.C.’s coastal waters was approved Tuesday, despite some council members’ concerns it was far out of the city’s jurisdiction. Coun. Rick Glumac’s motion calls for the city to oppose the pipelines proposed by Enbridge, Kinder Morgan and any other company that would lead to the expansion of oil tanker traffic off B.C.’s coast. It also asks that the city send the motion to the prime minister’s office, Premier Christy Clark, local MLAs and MPs and to the Union of BC Municipalities. In a report, Glumac said the National Energy Board estimates large petroleum pipelines will experience a spill every 16 years for every 1,000 km of pipeline; there are also, on

MORE ON THIS: Q How They Voted: page 16 Q Letter to the Editor: page 11 average, three to 11 oil tanker spills every year that exceed 5,000 barrels. “There have been 34 tanker spills that spilled more crude oil than the well-known Exxon Valdez, which spilled 270,000 barrels,” the report adds. Enbridge’s proposed pipeline, from the Alberta oil sands across B.C. to Kitimat, would ship 525,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Kinder Morgan aims to ship 750,000 barrels to its Burnaby facility. C o u n . Ro s e m a r y Small expressed her support for Glumac’s motion, noting she and her husband vacationed in Mississippi to help build oil booms after the BP Deepwater Horizon

oil spill in 2010. But not all council members were on board. Coun. Diana Dilworth said the concerns are well-founded but the issue is not within the city’s mandate and concerned residents should speak to their MP and/ or MLA. “I’m not in any way in favour of oil being dumped into the ocean,” a d d e d M ayo r M i ke Clay, “but I support the elected officials at the provincial and federal levels to do their jobs. The city has no method of influencing or controlling this, so I’m not supporting it.” Coun. Gerry Nuttall also voted against the motion. spayne@tricitynews.com

Giant Hogweed Rochester Play ZONE – 1309 Rochester Avenue

Help Rid the City of Giant Hogweed

Join the adventure & explore our new playground with a giant sand pit, water activities and more.

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.

Tuesday – Saturday 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

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.

Q WHAT WE THINK:

H

ousing sales are steady in the Fraser Valley, even as they seem to be in a bit more of a decline in Metro Vancouver. Declines in sales activity and prices are more marked in Metro Van but as neighbourhoods and Lower Mainland cities are so different, it is hard to paint with too broad a brush. Still, a few basic trends seem to be emerging. One is that, despite low interest rates, people seem to be unwilling to pay any more for housing. Prices have been going up for a long time and are now at the point where many working people simply can’t afford to buy. Another trend is an inability to qualify for a mortgage. The federal government has tightened up the amortization period for homes requiring Canada Mortgage and Housing mortgage insurance and that means bigger monthly payments. And that means some people simply can’t get into the market. A third trend is more intangible, but nonetheless valid. People have a sense that the economy isn’t doing nearly as well as it could, and even positive economic news does not entice them to go out and borrow a great deal of money.

The day the kids lost their summer freedom AS I SEE IT Chris Bryan

I

remember it all, clear as day: I was 11. It was summer, 1982. We were playing Kick the Can. The old soup tin was on the boulevard and though our street could get pretty busy with traffic, we kids had all fanned out, tucked behind bushes and under parked cars, the bold ones among us finding refuge in empty garbage cans and behind the mean old widow’s fence. I laid down in the bed of a pickup truck parked in a neighbour’s driveway. I swear I can still remember that last breath of air, sweet and clear. The taste of freedom is how I see it now. The silence of hiding children was broke by that first call. “BARB-RA! BAAAARRR-BRA! TIME TO COME IN!” From my vantage point, I saw her,

2012 CCNA

crouched behind the Kissicks’ rosebush. Her shoulders sagged, she groaned and stood up. “AND-REW! AAAAN-DREW! DIN-NER! LET’S GO!” The chorus grew as other mothers chimed in, voices blanketing sidewalks and lawns. When my mom hollered, I dragged my heels. That’s how I remember it. Wandered through the cedars out front of the Phillips’ house, leaning on one and looking up at the branches, thinking I’d climb it sometime soon. But I didn’t. See, that was the last day. The last day we played Kick the Can, Red Rover, British Bulldog or street hockey until 9 p.m. two blocks down. It was our last day of real freedom. An experience that, years later, all of us would wistfully remember and long for. A kind of feeling that kids who grew up after 1982 would never truly understand. They would grow up in a helmeted world. Hermetically sealed inside their cars, their TV rooms, their community centres. For us, the shift that happened that day

was about more than just growing up. We lost our innocence but so too did our world. Perhaps I should have seen the warning signs a summer earlier, when I was delivering The Province at 5 a.m. Don’t ask me how I dragged myself out of bed at that age. I would stumble into my Converse hightops, rugby pants and baggy shirt, and strap on my Swatch, wet my hand under the sink and push my bangs off my brow and walk in the gathering gloom up Dempsey, Nottingham and Coleman all the way to my friend’s house on McNair. I’d go around back to his bedroom and open the sliding glass door, then jump on him with my knees so we could get going, unbundle the papers and wander the neighbourhood with our sacks. Every once in a while, we’d see a little school photo on the cover of the paper. A little boy or girl gone missing. Maybe those pictures were the sign of change to come. Or perhaps it was that day I went to another friend’s house after school and

watched as his mom locked up the liquor cabinet, pocketed the key and stood in front of the mirror wearing the new outfit she would wear to work the next day, her first day on the job in 14 years. Other moms followed in her wake, carried by changing times, and for the first time, the houses were quiet during the day and the daycares filled up. Within months, the Block Watch signs came down and we’d all signed up for piano lessons. Or maybe it was CNN, which debuted two years earlier and showed us that the world was going to hell, country by country, 24 hours a day, so keep your loved ones close. It’s a different world now. I see that. But I’d like to find a way back. Or somewhere completely new, where there’s a little more trust and a little less fear. Let’s do a pilot project. Even for just one day.

uild condos on the Riverview lands? Surely, my colleague to my right jests. Perhaps while we’re at it we could slap up a Walmart and a Canadian Tire on the Colony Farm lands. There’s nothing there but a few buildings, some community gardens and a few noisy birds. Let’s bulldoze the sucker along with the old buildings and useless trees on the Riverview lands and build a bunch of condos. Think of the jobs we’d create! This kind of insensitive development may make sense to my paveparadise-put-up-a-parking-lot friend. But on this July 13, the very day the last two wards in Riverview Hospital close, let’s be clear that the public will not accept the building of even one condo on the Riverview lands. For years, conservationists, in anticipation of this day, have been establishing committees to save the land from developers. Botanists, armed with lists of the 71 genuses, 158 species and 113 varieties of trees gracing the Riverview grounds, are dug in to protect this sacred arboretum. Even developers who have circled the billion-dollar property like buzzards know community resistance to development is unassailable. And we’ve already, over the years,

released 750 of Riverview’s original 1,000 acres for real estate development — enough already. So what, now, for Riverview? Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth has it right. Declare that the Riverview lands will remain publicly owned: a public heritage site, botanical reserve and the future site of a modern, integrated, mental health care hub. Closing Riverview Hospital was the right thing to do. Its big buildings were as 19th century as the idea of isolating mentally challenged people in institutional warehouses. And yet Metro Vancouver’s need for modern mental health care services has never been more glaring than it is today. That’s because when we quite appropriately closed Riverview, we neglected the second part of the plan: to develop integrated and localized approaches to mental health care. Too often, this neglect has resulted in those needing care ending up on the streets. While we publicly redevelop Riverview to fulfill this need for a regional mental health care hub, we should erect informational signs, explaining the 99-year history of Riverview and describing the exotic trees among which one ambles on one’s way to the public picnic area.

The Editor, Port Moody councillors Rick Glumac, Z o Í Roye r a n d Ro s e m a r y S m a l l clearly do not respect the voters of Port Moody. These people were not elected to grandstand and use their council seats as a soapbox. Smart meters, etc. are not under their control nor are the other issues they keep drumming up. Keeping services and taxes under control, smaller government and better use of our tax dollars are the issues that taxpayers want you to champion. Mayor Mike Clay has been the only member of council to show any leadership on these issues. Let’s stand firm on the upcoming union negotiations; municipal employees are important but their pay and benefits are already too rich. While councillors are at it, how about amending their smart meter motion to include that if you opt out of smart meters, then you can pay your share of the readers’ time to come to your home and read your old meter? Councillors should keep to the basics and get up to speed or resign their seats. Rob Boies, Port Moody

Coq. steps up pool watch continued from front page

IN QUOTES

Life jackets are available in all city pools and in all sizes — at no cost. Last S u n d a y, 20-month-old Ivan Yousif died when he accidentally slipped into a Surrey residential pool; his grandmother, Warina Nissan, 51, tried to save him but died from her injuries the next day. That night, a 32-yearo l d O l ive r wo m a n drowned after falling off a paddle boat on Gallagher Lake, north of Oliver (alcohol and prescription drugs were factors in her death, police say). And on Tuesday, a two-year-old Sur rey girl was found floating unconscious in her family’s backyard pool. She was pulled out by a family friend who performed CPR; the toddler survived. The drownings and near-drowning come the same week the BC Coroners’ Service released a five-year study showing nearly 30% of pool-related fatalities involved toddlers and preschoolers, ages one to four. All the drownings happened at residential pools and in the Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley regions.

“We have heard so many times when a parent says ‘I just took my eyes off for a second.’”

What do you think? Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam city staff are asking for residents’ views on outdoor pools. From July 11 to the August long weekend, Coquitlam staff will visit pools and spray parks to gain feedback about the outdoor aquatic use. And in PoCo, the city is seeking its information via an online survey (go to www.portcoquitlam.ca and click on the link Outdoor Aquatic Infrastructure and Services Review Survey) until July 27. The polling is a result of a joint study that started this spring on the future for outdoor pools in the Tri-Cities; the results are expected to be presented to city councils in September before budget deliberations begin. Coquitlam launched the review after deciding to temporarily close 44-year-old Rochester Pool in Maillardville, which is primarily used by children and families and has been failing for years. According to a city report, it would cost $170,000 to repair the concrete basin or $4 million to rebuild it. Another option is to decommission the pool and/or re-use the pool and change rooms for other recreational uses.

Wendy Schultenkamper The drownings also come a week before the BC/Yukon Lifesaving Society launches the annual National Drowning Prevention Week, July 21 to 29 (the third week of July is typically when people are on vacation and there’s a higher risk for swimming problems). According to the society’s statistics, between 400 and 500 Canadians die annually in water-related incidents, and many of them in unsupervised settings. W e n d y Schultenkamper, the society’s education director, said adults with kids need to be cautious and alert. “We have heard so many times when a parent says, ‘I just took my eyes off for a second to run in and get the phone’ and something has happened,” she said. “A toddler can drown in 10 to 30 seconds.”

Necklace kl Project connects PoMo with Metro neighbours Elevated mosaics will highlight historic locations

PCT SEEKS TO EXPAND

By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Moody will soon be illuminated by part of the Necklace Project, a n i n t e r- m u n i c i p a l public art project designed to link 10 Metro Vancouver cities. Elevated mosaics will be installed in five locations throughout the city. The largest piece — a six-foot-diameter round mosaic framed in steel — will go outside the Port Moody Arts Centre. Additional locations will highlight historic points in the city, including the first school site (now Moody elementary), the telephone exchange building and the city’s first bank, both on Clarke Street, and at the Port Moody Station Museum, at Rocky Point Park. The project’s theme is illuminance, defined in a staff report as “light’s capacity to produce visual stimulation or clarity.” Other participating cities include Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Burnaby, New Westminster, Nor th Vancouver, Richmond and Surrey. The $50,000 cost of the project has previously been approved by council and is funded from the city’s artwork reserve. Other PoMo news:

Pacific Coast Terminals is hoping to add potash, coal and canola oil to the products it handles at its Port Moody facility. The company is applying to Metro Vancouver for a change to its permit under the air quality management bylaw, allowing PCT to add the new commodities to its bulk shipping facility, which already handles sulphur and ethylene glycol. The new commodities would be handled mainly with existing technology at PCT. Some modifications, including the construction of a potash storage shed and additional liquid storage tanks, will be required; those would go beside the large yellow sulphur piles on the east side of PCT’s property. PCT’s community relations co-ordinator, Diana Dilworth (who is also a Port Moody councillor), said the company hasn’t yet finalized agreements with any suppliers. A community update newsletter notes that diminishing supplies of sulphur have led PCT to explore new alternatives. Visit www.pct.ca for more details.

vinced, however, with Coun. Gerry Nuttall suggesting the city should develop a policy to protect existing rental units. “In the next 20 years,

this is going to be fought one housing unit at a time,” he added. Councillors Rick Glumac and Rosemary Small voted against the application.

Port Moody lost four units of rental housing after council approved a strata conversion application for a Buller Street building. The building, located at 123 Buller St., is a four-unit multi-family structure. The owner had previously applied in 2010 and 2011 for permission to change it to a six-unit building but was refused both times. A staff report stated the conversion of four units wouldn’t significantly affect the existing rental stock, which consists of 409 units at 11 properties throughout the city.

PoCo park gets new turf field THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Work has begun on a new artificial turf at Gates Park in Port Coquitlam. The city’s second turf field is being built over a former gravel field and is expected to be completed by the end of September. Ron Myers, the city’s manager of parks planning and design, said in a press release artificial fields are better suited for the Lower Mainland’s rainy climate. They can be used year-round and game cancellations are only required during heavy rain or snow. But not all residents are happy with the construction of the new athletic facilities. During a recent city council meeting, Coun. Glenn Pollock, who chairs the healthy community committee, acknowledged that some residents were not

happy about trees being removed during construction. Nine trees were chopped down, including five London planes and two Maples, which staff said had invasive roots and heavy leaf fall that could damage the new field. “I have heard some resident feedback that they were upset with us having to take down the trees,” he said. “We are helping balance the needs of the community.” The city expects to replace the trees with a more compatible species. Adding an artificial turf field was identified as a top priority when the city began consulting with the public for its 2011 Athletic Field Strategy. A meeting will be held this month to begin the process of allocating field use to user groups, which include soccer and field lacrosse organizations.

Alleged PoCo copper thief facing charges 27-year-old suspect is well known to Coq. RCMP

TC gets $2 M piece of traffic fine pie Traffic fines last year have put more than $2 million into Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody city coffers. On Wednesday, the B.C. government announced Coquitlam will receive $1.2 million from the traffic fine revenue sharing program while Port Coquitlam and Port Moody will get $545,697 and $388,259 respectively. The net proceeds, used to offset the cost of municipal policing and community safety, come from ticket fines and court-imposed penalties for violating motorists. Also this week, Victoria handed Anmore $294,388 while Belcarra received $218,232 in small community grants, designed to provide infrastructure and services for the villages. newsroom@tricitynews.com

By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Port Coquitlam man who’s well known to police is f acing charges after copper piping was stolen from an underground parking lot last weekend. Clayton Nielsen was arrested in the 2600block of Jane Street at around 4:30 a.m. Saturday morning and is facing one count of mischief, two counts of break and enter and two counts of possessing break-in instruments. A resident of the apar tment building phoned police after hearing something suspicious in the underground parking lot and seeing copper piping lying on the ground. “The area was immediately swamped with police,” said Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung. “We arrested one male red-handed

and we held him in custody.” This is not the first time the 27-year-old accused has had trouble with police, according to Chung. Last f all, he was charg ed with two counts of break and enter, possession of stolen property and possessing break-in tools. In 2010, he was charged with four

counts of theft under $5,000 and Nielsen has similar charges dating back to 2003. “We have had extensive dealings with him in the past,” Chung said. He added that because police were able to get to the scene quickly, the damage caused by the remove of the pipe was contained. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Saturday, July 14 MOSTLY MUSIC

CLAY FOR YOU

The pottery series at The Outlet at Leigh Square (#11002253 Leigh Sq.) in downtown PoCo closes this weekend, so don’t miss your last chance to see exceptional Korean-style pottery and stoneware, made here in the Tri-Cities. Pieces range from rustic buncheong (stoneware) to intricate celadon ware.

Sunday, July 15 GARDEN TOUR

Recognition for Riverview long overdue GREEN SCENE Elaine Golds

TAKE A WALK AT RIVERVIEW

Over the summer, the Riverview Horticultural Centre Society will continue to conduct free tree tours at Riverview, including one this Sunday afternoon at which the linden trees are expected to finally be in full bloom (for more information, visit www.rhcs.org). In addition, on Aug. 19, the Burke Mountain Naturalists will offer a heritage tour of Riverviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s buildings (outside only); visit www.bmn.bc.ca for more details. Participating in these tours provides opportunities for members of the public to become acquainted with the nuances of this complex site and better prepared to provide input on its heritage conservation values and future uses.

Râ&#x20AC;&#x2122;view is a haven for mental health

A

SUE HABERGER PHOTO

The Riverview grounds include some Arts and Craft-style buildings as well as larger, more monumental structures, all of which complemented by campus-style landscaping. Dr. Esson Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ideas for mental health care were highly innovative for the time. Developed in partnership with Dr. Charles Doherty, it called for patients to receive gentle care, which included nutritious food, fresh air, outdoor exercise and regular routines.

The nutritious food was grown at Colony Farm (then part of Essondale) with help of the patients. Landscaping on the Riverview grounds, reminiscent of an English country estate, was intended to provide uplifting but comforting surroundings to aid in the recovery of patients.

Having had a parent who suffered from dementia for several years, I can certainly attest to the calming influence of walking through graciously landscaped grounds with colourful flowers and the dappled shade of mature trees complemented by birdsong and

breezes rustling the leaves. While the ideas of these early planners for mental health care at Riverview have certainly withstood the test of time, dismay is high in this community that Riverview Hospital will not. It is perplexing such a haven for men-

tal wellness is closing despite an urgent need for more health care beds for the mentally ill, including the homeless and older patients besieged with dementia. It is quite baffling to have the Riverview site, which is perfectly designed for their care and home to some still

s a naturalist, I am usually alarmed when an animal or plant species gets pushed to the top of the most endangered list. But for Riverview Hospital, such a listing can only be a good thing because it will bring muchneeded public attention to its future. Thus, at the end of June, I was delighted with the announcement that the Heritage Canada Foundation had placed Riverview Hospital at the top of its list of most endangered heritage sites in Canada. Some people in the Tri-Cities will be familiar with Riverviewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fabulous tree collection and groomed green spaces, which offer such a soothing reprieve from the stresses of modern life. But as noted by Heritage Canada, Riverview also deserves recognition for its elegant collection of buildings and inspired social history. After all, Riverview was at the forefront of North American mental health care for much of the 20th century. For several years, it was a teaching hospital affiliated with the University of British Columbia and also provided training for psychiatric nurses. While people in our community may value Riverview mainly for its trees and serene landscapes, the Heritage Canada Foundation nomination made particular mention of its â&#x20AC;&#x153;high-quality architecture, orchestrated for many decades with remarkable consistency in scale and materials.â&#x20AC;? Without a doubt, the visionary pioneers responsible for creating Riverview built the site to endure and intended the hospital to serve the residents of British Columbia for decades, if not in perpetuity. A key figure was Dr. Henry Esson Young, one of the most influential provincial bureaucrats in B.C. in the early 1900s. He established both UBC and Riverview, which was originally named Essondale in his honour. He hired John Davidson, the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first botanist, who developed B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first botanical garden at Riverview (now at UBC) as well as G.K. McLean, a landscape architect who designed both the new hospital grounds and the UBC campus.

very functional buildings, now essentially devoid of patients. The provincial government, after wrapping up its Heritage Conservation Planning process in September (participate online at www.riverviewvalues. info), intends to move into future land use planning at rather alarming speed, with the intended goal of concluding this process by the end of 2012. Many people feel the past use of Riverview was its best and highest use and would like to see the site remain as a centre for mental health care. Elaine Golds is a Port Moody environmentalist who is vice-president of Burke Mountain Naturalists, chair of the Colony Farm Park Association and past president of the PoMo Ecological Society.

Keep kids active in summer & all year Now that the weather is warmer, what are your plans to keep your kids active? A study by the Canadian Fitness and L i f e s t y l e Re s e a r c h Institute shows that children in Canada do not get enough physical activity on a daily basis, according to the Canada Safety Council. Active play is critical for the healthy development of children. Regularly being active helps children build social skills, imagination and self-esteem. Research shows that lifestyle patterns set before the age of five predict health outcomes in later childhood and through adulthood, while staying active on a regular basis is the key to a healthy lifestyle. According to the 2010 Active Healthy Kids Canada Report Card, only 12% of Canadian children and youth are meeting the guidelines set forth by Canada’s P hy s i c a l A c t iv i t y Guidelines of at least 60 minutes of physical activity per day. Girls, in particular, tend to be less active than boys, with only five% of adolescent girls meeting the guidelines. However, 20% of boys aged five to 10, as well as 15% of boys aged 11 to 14, meet the guidelines. These Canadian P hy s i c a l A c t iv i t y Guidelines, released by the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP), state that kids five to 17 years require at least 60 minutes of moderate- to vigourous-intensity activity per day — and that’s the bare minimum.

Canadians should try to exceed the minimum activity levels recommended. The health benefits will be greater if the physical activity, intensity, and duration are varied. Vigourous-Intensity activities are particularly great for getting the most benefit out of physical activity, as are muscle and bonestrengthening activities. Children and youth should do these at least three days per week, as part of their 60 minutes per day. VigourousIntensity physical activities will cause children and youth to sweat and be out of breath. These activities include running, swimming and inline skating. Bike riding and brisk walking, though they may occasionally be cause to break a sweat, are considered to be moderate-intensity physical activities. The CSEP also released the Canadian Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines which recommend that kids five to 17 years limit sedentary time, meaning that they should limit the time spent in front of a computer or television screen to no more than two hours per day. Sedentary transport, prolonged sitting and time spent indoors throughout the day should also be limited. Spending less time being immobile can help children and teens to maintain a healthy body weight, perform better in school, and improve their self-confidence. According to the Canada Safety Council, here’s how parents can

help keep their children active: • Determine a time limit for watching TV, playing video games, and/or playing on the computer. The current recommendation is up to two hours daily. Limiting screen time creates more opportunities for active play. • Keep televisions out of your child’s bedroom. • Use active transportation to get to and from places if possible. Walking with your kids

is a great way for both of you to incorporate physical activity into your day. Riding a bike or inline skating is also great active transportation. • Encourage your children to get involved in sports teams or clubs within the community, and at school. • Get your children involved in active chores around the house, such as raking, vacuuming and gardening. • During summer vacation, make sure that you have plenty of toys

IN QUOTES

“Determine a time limit for watching TV, playing video games, and/or playing on the computer. The current recommendation is up to two hours daily. Limiting screen time creates more opportunities for active play.” Canada Safety Council and sports equipment on hand that encourage active play, such as basket-

balls, soccer balls, jump rope, squirt guns, etc. • Plan outings to the

local pool, playground, or tennis courts. • On days that it is raining or too hot to go outside, play active games inside. Even video games that get you moving are great, such as Nintendo Wii games, Kinect for Xbox 360 games or Playstation Move games. • Set a good example for your children. Get moving yourself and chances are your child will follow. For more information, visit safety-council.org.

BUSINESS PROFILE: It’s a family affair at a pair of St. Johns Street establishments

Dad and daughter side by side in business By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

F

amilies that open businesses t o g e t h e r s t ay together. At least that appears to be the recipe for success for two Port Moody businesses owned by the father-anddaughter team of Glen and Ashley Braid. Daughter Ashley opened Shine Hair Lounge at 2520 St. Johns St. in Port Moody in May and her dad followed suit, moving his own custom jewelry design business, Diamonds and Design Jewelry, earlier this month from Newport Village to the spot next door at 2522 St. Johns. The two Coquitlam residents say they love Port Moody and decided to set up shop there; mom Chelsea Braid is also in the picture, having worked behind the scenes on both businesses.

“It’s really brought our family closer together,” said Glen Braid, noting that opening two businesses at almost the same time, including renovating two stores, has been a lot of work for all family members. The father and daughter say they have also learned a lot from each other in the process. Ashley is getting business tips from her dad, who has operated his own jewelry design business for 25 years, and Glen is learning about social media marketing from his daughter, who is rarely without her smartphone. “She’s doing quite well,” said Glen. “I’m impressed.” “I think I know more but I don’t,” said Ashley, who admits to going to her dad for advice. Glen said he is friends with the landlord and when a salon and shop next door became available for rent, he grabbed

them, getting a good deal in the process. Ashley is only 25 years old but has been a stylist for eight years and has been working on the side at her dad’s jewelry business. “She has a good eye,” he says. It didn’t take long for him to put two and two together and Ashley jumped at the idea of having her own salon. She now has two other stylists on staff besides herself and a steady clientele. Glen has been putting the finishing touches on his shop’s classy decor, complete with white walls, white furniture and a chandelier. Next door, Ashley has put her own stamp on the decor and enjoys having her own business. The next step will be to invite customers to the Braid block along the heavy traffic corridor. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Hydrangeas offer colour IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter

Just Reduced

V

irtually every well-tended garden is now going through its cycle of summer colour but a certain flowering shrub is just around the corner, preparing to steal the show. Hydrangeas, next to roses, are perhaps the most common deciduous flowering shrub in West Coast gardens. The ‘macrophylla’ or ‘garden hydrangea’ was introduced to England in 1736 and since then a whole series of exciting new varieties have been developed for the home garden. When folks ask me to recommend a good vine for a shady north wall, my first choice is the climbing hydrangea, ‘anomala petiolaris’. This deciduous, fast-growing vine has four inch long, dark, heart-shaped glossy leaves. It has aerial rootlets that cling to virtually anything standing still and the plant itself will stretch to twenty feet or more, if left untrimmed. Its foliage appears quite early in the spring and lasts well into the autumn. In my opinion, it almost qualifies as an evergreen vine. The real feature of this attractive vine, however, is its large, flat white flower clusters which grow to six inches across and resemble the lacecap varieties. This hydrangea is hardy to -25° C. which is surprising because of its lush appearance. It’s a winner in any garden and will tolerate some sun but the foliage is far richer in a more shaded location. The white flowering hydrangea you see in fall gardens is most likely the ‘P.G.’ variety, which is short for ‘paniculata Grandiflora’. You’ve probably seen some in tree forms as many have been grafted that way. It is quite easy to select one strong branch and train it into a tree form. Believe it or not, this hydrangea is Prairie hardy, tolerating temperatures of -35 C. Given time, the plant can become almost a tree, stretching up to 12 feet in height but most folks like to keep them trimmed back to around 6 feet to conform to most garden situations. Its massive, pendulous cone-shaped flowers appear in mid-July and often last until late September when they take on a pinkish hue. The foliage of this fine garden plant also turns a rich bronze in fall, so it is a colourful accent in your autumn garden. ‘Little Lime’, one of the hot newer varieties that turns cream then multicoloured, is a shorter cousin I love for those sunny but more compact locations. The most compact of all is H.p. ‘Bombshell’, growing only 3 feet high and wide and blooming from July through to frost with stunning pure white blooms. ‘Angel’s Blush’ is another new variety that comes out white, then immediately turns pink and holds that beautiful pink to the very end. The show stealer, however, has to be H.p. ‘Vanilla Strawberry’ with its stunning white flowers that are almost immediately infused with red, creating a ‘wow’ sensation. ‘Lace Cap’ hydrangeas have certainly drawn

the most interest during the past few years. They are called ‘Serrata’ or ‘Lace Cap’ because a cluster of sterile flowers in the centre are surrounded by large florets of traditional hydrangea blossoms. The effect is really quite charming and in shady locations they seem to outlast the ‘macrophylla’ or common varieties. Like the big-leafed hydrangeas, however, the blossoms will turn a beautiful sea-blue in acid soils and pink or reddish-purple in chalk soils. Remember: you can change their colour by adding lime to keep them pink or aluminum sulphate to make them blue. There are now white ‘Lace Cap’ varieties that look classy and elegant in any setting and they do not change colour. One of the lesser known hydrangea varieties is the ‘quercifolia’ or ‘oak-leafed’ hydrangea. This handsome shrub has rather large leathery leaves resembling oak leaves and it grows to about six feet high. This is a great plant for heavily shaded areas because the creamy white flowers, which appear in June, brighten up those dull spots and the foliage, which turns a bright scarlet-crimson in fall, is really outstanding. Unfortunately, this oak-leafed variety is often quite hard to locate in nurseries. For small space gardens, there are now several true dwarf varieties that stay within the three foot range. ‘Pia’, ‘Winning Edge’ and ‘Pink Elf ’ are some of the cutest little garden gnomes you’ve ever seen. The truly big news is the first ever ‘macrophylla’ type that blooms on new wood. For those buds that get frozen out in a bad winter and for those of us who prune our hydrangea to the ground each spring and get no blooms, this variety is the answer. Amazingly, they bloom beautifully on new growth. ‘Endless Summer’ is the name and it’s a ‘must have’ for your garden. The new double varieties from Ball Ornamentals are really quite something as well, offering an entirely new look. They too can be blue or pink depending upon the pH level of the soil. They are in bloom now, so take a look at these beauties. Most hydrangeas are very versatile but they prefer moist soil and bloom far longer with some shelter from the intense afternoon sun. They are one great garden plant and two or three varieties in a garden will be a welcome addition.

is Adera’s best yet,” says Adera President Norm Couttie. “To be recognized with six awards of merit is phenomenal at this high level of competition, but to win a Grand Award at (an) international building awards (ceremony) is thrilling.” Adera also won Awards of Merit for Multi-Family Housing Project – over 50/acre for seven35, On the Boards MultiFamily Community for Sail, Green Sustainable Residential Community for seven35, Residential Project of the Year – Attached Product in an Urban Setting for seven 35, and International Residential Project – Attached 1.0 FAR and over for seven35 and Ultima.

‘This is really something out of the ordinary’

Solo David has views and architecture all in one by Kerry Vital

Standing on your front steps outside Solo David by Mosaic Homes, you see the Lower Mainland stretching before you. Situated in a fantastic location on Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain, the views are simply out of this world. “Architecture, views, value: it’s all there,” says Mosaic’s Brandon Trent. “This is really something out of the ordinary.” He’s not exaggerating. With large windows and Solo David’s northsouth facing location, you’ll be able to see beauty from every angle. Built in a classic Tudor style, with recessed entries, oversized eight-foot doors, wood trim and a stucco finish, the exteriors themselves are almost like works of art. Each home is three storeys. Two-car garages are at the rear with a walk-out entrance to the main floor and a fenced backyard.

These homes won’t last,” says Mosaic’s Brandon Trent. “They’re exclusive and unique to the mountainside.”

With only 16 three-storey homes in the project, ranging from 3,516 to 3,522 square feet, Solo David is an exclusive community that is perfect for families of all sizes. With the ability to add a suite or an extra bedroom, it’s easy to make your home fit your lifestyle. “It’s really flexible for families,” Trent says. Inside, the homes are modern and contemporary, with laminate flooring and an open-plan layout. Buyers are able to choose between a threeand four-bedroom configuration, depending on your needs. The lower level offers plenty of options for customization, whether you want to build a mortgage helper, a large entertainment space or a home office. The possibilities are endless, Trent says. Heading up the stairs, the main living area opens before you. With nine-foot ceilings, the sense of space is incredible. The kitchen is huge, with tons of storage space and elegant quartz countertops. “This is a massive dining room,” says Trent. The show home features a table set for eight, but you could fit at least 10 people in the space. Beside it, the living area is complemented by the large bay window and a flex space that can be used as a library or extra living space. Upstairs, the master bedroom is the

epitome of comfort, with its walkin closet and coffered ceilings that continue in the ensuite bathroom. “This is a stunning bedroom,” Trent says. “There’s just nothing like it.” One of the fabulous features here is the large window seat that affords you yet another beautiful view. Those views will never disappear, Trent says, since Mosaic will also be building Riley, a collection of Tudor rowhomes which complements the streetscape and does not impede the scenery. The other bedrooms on the upper floor are spacious and inviting. A flex space is featured up here as well, so you can decide to close it off to make a fourth bedroom, or leave it open to use as a playroom or office space. The grand opening will take place on Saturday, July 14 at noon, and Mosaic is expecting a great turnout. “These homes won’t last,” says Trent. “They’re exclusive and unique to the mountainside.” Homes start at $699,900. For more information, visit www.solohomes.ca or call 604-878-SOLO (7656). The Home Store is located at 3471 David Avenue.

Debt-freedom a priority Eighty-five per cent of British Columbian homeowners indicate “being debt-free” is very important to their definition of a successful retirement according to a recent debt survey by Manulife Bank of Canada. It ranks second only to “good health” (92%) and slightly higher than “sufficient retirement income to maintain my current lifestyle” (83%). According to Manulife, when asked to imagine that they had reached their planned retirement age and still had debt outstanding, 52% indicated that they would find this scenario extremely stressful. This aligns closely with the national average, where the survey found that fully half of Canadians — more women (54%) than men (46%) — would find it stressful to reach retirement age with debt not yet paid off. B.C. homeowners judge many nonfinancial factors such as “living near family” (60%), “keeping busy with a hobby or volunteer work” (66%) and “have a broad group of friends” (47%) much less important to a successful retirement than being debt-free. “Like most Canadians, B.C. homeowners understand that a stress-free retirement relies not only on sufficient savings, but also on being debt-free,” said Stuart Kirk, a retirement planning specialist with Precision Wealth Management in Parksville. “Understanding the importance of paying off debt is the first step to a successful retirement. The next step is putting a plan in place to help get there. And that’s where a financial advisor can help.” Across Canada, debtfreedom expectations change as people get older Manulife Bank’s debt and retirement survey found that three in four Canadian homeowners consider debt-freedom to be among their top financial goals — a finding that is relatively consistent with Manulife Bank’s past consumer debt studies. But respondents’ expectations about when they will actually achieve debtfreedom appears to be largely dependent upon their age, a finding that is consistent across the country. Most Canadian home-

Just one third of homeowners in their 50s expect to be debt-free before they turn 60, with one in five indicating they either donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be debt-free (14%) or donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect to ever be debt-free (7%). Overall, just over half of the survey respondents are confident they will be free from debt when they reach their planned retirement age. This relative lack of confidence appears to be well-founded, as only half of Canadian homeowners report having less debt than they did 12 months ago. In B.C., homeowners are concerned about the challenge they face regarding household debt and they appear to be taking steps to address the problem. Close to half (46%) of those who are neither debt-free nor retired plan, to focus more on repaying debt than saving for retirement over the next year, compared to 11% who state the reverse. These results are comparable to those reported in the rest

Coquitlam product Ben Street busts through a pair of opponents while toiling last season with the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the main farm team of the NHL Pittsburgh Penguins. Street, 25, signed a two-year, two-way contract last week with the NHL Calgary Flames, whose main minor league affiliate is the Abbotsford Heat.

Abby Heat next stop on Street’s travels? Coquitlam product inks 2-way deal with NHL Calgary Flames By Larry Pruner and Dan Kinvig BLACK PRESS

I

t was nearly a decade ago that Troy Ward successfully recruited Ben Street to the University of Wisconsin. Next season, he may finally get to coach him. Street, a 25-year-old Coquitlam native, signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Abbotsford Heat’s NHL parent club, the Calgary Flames, last week. Should he end up playing close to home with the Heat, he’d see a familiar face behind the bench. “I recruited Ben to the University of Wisconsin from the BCHL [where he starred with the Salmon Arm Silverbacks], and about the time he got there, I left to pursue another opportunity,” Heat head coach Ward told Black Press. “We’ve been in contact over

the years, and I’ve worked with him in the summers, training with him.” For Street, it will be nice to have the opportunity to play closer to home and for likely a guy with whom he’s most familiar in Ward. “He’s a great developer,” Street told Black Press on his cell phone Wednesday from Madison, Wis. “His methods don’t just click with me, but with other guys, too. His motto is ‘I’m the teacher, you’re the coach.’ He teaches you how to do things but you’ve got to figure it out on your own.” After playing out his NCAA eligibility with the Wisconsin Badgers, Street began his pro career in 2010-11 with the ECHL’s Wheeling Nailers. Ward helped pave the way for the five-foot-11, 185-pound centre to move up to the AHL, putting in a good word for Street with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins coach John Hynes. Street excelled with the Pittsburgh

Penguins’ affiliate, notching 12 goals and 11 assists for 23 points in 36 games to finish out the 2010-11 campaign, and posting 27-30-57 in 71 games last season. With the Flames retooling after missing the playoffs for a third straight year, Street believes his chances of making their parent club eventually are better than they seemed with the talent-rich Penguins. “That was one of my biggest reasons for my decision [to sign with the Flames],” Street said. “I really like my chances in terms of moving up. I have nothing but good things to say about the Penguins’ organization but there wasn’t a whole lot of room there, especially down the middle. With me being a centre man, I think I’ll have a better opportunity with the Flames.” Ward had minimal input on the Flames’ decision to sign Street when he hit free agency on July 1, but he believes his best

days are ahead, based on his increased offensive output as a second-year AHLer. “Ben’s got a really good feel for the game, both offensively and defensively,” Ward said. “He’s really good on faceoffs, and he can play on the penalty kill and the power play. His shot is very much an NHL shot.” Street’s father, Rob, told Black Presss earlier Wednesday he’s ecstatic over the prospect of seeing his son play more in living colour only a one-hour drive or so down the freeway. “It’s really exciting,” Rob said. “He’s worked really hard to get this opportunity and hopefully it will be the next step for him to get to the big leagues.” Ben plans to drive with his girlfriend and dog from Wisconsin next week to train for the rest of summer in the Vancouver area before attending the Flames’ training camp in September, and likely joining the Heat after that. “Abbotsford’s about as close to home since I played junior in Salmon Arm,” Ben said. “My parents’ travel budget will be cut down considerably.”

BMX’s Nyhaug overcomes injury to make Olympics Tory Nyhaug is one tough pedal pusher. After rupturing his spleen in May for the second time in less than two years, the 20-year-old BMX star from Coquitlam has now officially been named to the Canadian Olympic Team. For Nyhaug, the road to London has been filled with challenges. Canada’s top BMX rider and currently slotted fifth in the

World rankings, he has consistently been in Supercross finals over the last two seasons, establishing himself as a threat and a serious contender for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, running July 27 to Aug. 12. But mishaps kept curbing his ability to train and race in anticipation of and preparation for England. Nyhaug crashed in a practice session at

the 2010 UCI World Championships, and his season suddenly came to an end as he lost control of his bike and hit the ground hard. The diagnosis was not pretty: He suffered a ruptured spleen, and was forced out of action for a considerable time. Bed-ridden for three months in 2010, Nyhaug was determined to come back and show the world he was stronger than ever.

Since his comeback from the first spleen injury, Nyhaug again enjoyed significant success on the world scene, finishing ninth at the 2011 World Championships, and stepping twice on to the Supercross podium in the time trials. see NYHAUG ‘MOTIVATED’, MOTIVATED , page 46

Nyhaug â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;motivatedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; continued from page 45

This year, the twotime reigning Canadian champion was enjoying a successful season when he crashed in the final race of the UCI Supercross event in Papendal, Netherlands, on May 13, the last Supercross before the World Championships. The news was devastating for Tory and his family: he once again ruptured his spleen â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for the second time in less than two years, as well as suffering a fractured wrist and a slight concussion. Once again, Nyhaug showed grit and not let his Olympic dreams die without a fight. After spending over three weeks in a hospital in Holland, including 10 days in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), Nyhaug was cleared to fly back to Canada. Upon his return, he and a team of medical experts from the Vancouver General Hospital opted to undergo a surgery and proceeded with the complete removal of the spleen, a non-vital organ. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could not have gone through an injury like this without my family, friends, girlfriend and support team,â&#x20AC;? Nyhaug said in a press release Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been the hardest and most painful month of my life and I can only see a brighter future ahead.â&#x20AC;? F u l l y r e c o ve r e d , Nyhaug is now in performance mode for the Olympic Games. Since the surgery, Nyhaug has enjoyed a quick healing process, and spent many hours

Saints slip late to Langley, 5-4 By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

PoCo Saints played plenty well enough d e f e n s ive ly t o w i n Wednesday but, offensively, they deserved not to. Then again, neither did the Langley Thunder. In fact, the Thunder relied on a so-so shot off a Saints’ rare defensive miscue to score the winning goal with 29 seconds left to prevail 5-4 in a B.C. Junior ‘A’ lacrosse league playoff game at Langley Events Centre. The win gave the fourth-place Thunder a 1-0 lead over the fifthplace Saints in the bestof-three quarter-final series, heading into last night’s (Thursday, after The Tri-City News deadline) second game at PoCo Rec Centre. A third and deciding game, if needed, would got Saturday back in Langley. “It was one of those goals where you go, ‘Oh man, where did that come from?’”

Saints head coach Nick Delmonico said of the deciding marker. The Thunder led 4-2 with fewer than three m i nu t e s re m a i n i n g when PoCo’s Garrett Chan struck for backto-back markers 40 ticks apart to even the score. But with overtime looming, the Thunder’s Nick Stone tallied just 1:24 after Chan had tied the game to bury the Saints. “We have been stressing defence all year and we played very well defensively,” said Delmonico, whose goalie Garrett Span was forced to make only 25 saves. “When you hold another team to five goals in a game you should win. Our offence needs to step up a little.” That could well happen, as Saints’ leading scorer Nash Harrison was unavailable to play Wednesday but was due to suit up in Game 2. Andrew Bromley and Cory Takahara also scored for the Saints, who out-shot Langley by a 36-32 margin.

Silvester skates to SFU Po r t C o q u i t l a m ’s Brenden Silvester has committed to join the Simon Fraser University Clan men’s hockey team next fall, it was announced Thursday. Silvester played three

seasons with the WHL Seattle Thunderbirds and, after putting up 31 points in 159 games, was described in a press release as “a gritty and strong skating centre with an exceptional work ethic.”

LARRY PRUNER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Ridge Meadows Burrards goalie Justin McLennan stops a streaking PoCo Saints’ player from in close during Wednesday’s opening-day action at PoCo Rec Centre in the B.C. Midget provincial lacrosse championships. The Saints won the game, 6-3.

Six Tri-City athletes captured medals and were among 37 members of the Hyack Swim Club team that won top age group honours at the B.C. Long Course AAA provincial championships last weekend in Richmond. Hyack, which trains out of the City Centre Aquatic Complex in Coquitlam, regained the championship title for the first time since the early 1980s. Medal-winning perfor mances from Hyack’s Tri-City swimmers included:

Abi Sayer 18, gold in the 200 butterfly and silver in the 4x200 freestyle relay; Sara Whelan, 14, silver in 100 breaststroke and 400 and 800 freestyle and bronze in the 100 freestyle and 400 individual medley; Jasmine Whelan, 13, silver in 200 breaststroke and bronze in 100 breaststroke; Mia Bottrill, 15, bronze in 200 butterfly and silver in 4x200 freestyle relay; Chris Baker, 14, bronze in 100 and 200 butterfly; and Jeremy Au, 13, bronze in 4x50 freestyle relay.
