Automatic raises hike politicians’ Metro pay

Birds of a feather build together in Port Moody

Questions raised over calculation of mayors’ pay By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

Mayors and councillors who sit on Metro Vancouver’s board or its committees are enjoying a nearly 5% increase in the meeting fees they collect. Metro directors are now paid $346 for every meeting they attend, up from $330 in 2011 and $322 in 2010. The fees double if a meeting exceeds four hours. The 4.8% raise this spring came not through any vote of the

board but from an automatic recalculation performed each year by administrators, who use a formula that increases directors’ fees in proportion with any rise in the median of Metro Vancouver mayors’ salaries. Thus, if a few cities raise their mayors’ salaries, the regional median rises and Metro meeting fees climb again the following year as a result. According to Metro figures, Delta Mayor Lois Jackson’s pay rose more than any other mayor in the region this year — a 16.7% jump from $100,523 to $117,360. see METRO TO LOOK LOOK,, page 9

Would-be doc gets head-start on saving lives Family thankful to Coq. student By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

STEVE SMITH PHOTO

This pair of osprey was recently spotted by local photographer Steve Smith as they were building their nest on a platform atop a piling in Burrard Inlet, near the Rocky Point pier in Port Moody. The osprey have been nesting at Rocky Point ever since volunteers from a number of Tri-City stewardship groups built nesting platforms for them in the mid-1990s (occasionally, however, Canada geese beat them to the platform and they have to use a less suitable site). The platforms were installed after similar structures were successful in attracting osprey to nest at Maplewood Flats in North Vancouver. Always found near water, many osprey spend their summers in British Columbia after migrating north from the Gulf of Mexico, California or Latin America.

When Igor Tatarnikov applies to medical school next year, he can count on at least one family to provide a glowing reference letter. The 20-year-old Coquitlam man was hanging out with friends at a beach house in Point Roberts for the Canada Day weekend when one

member of the group, James Richardson, suddenly collapsed. R i c h a r d s o n , wh o also lives in Coquitlam, suf fers from Wolf fParkinson-White syndrome, a disorder that can cause sudden cardiac death in a small percentage of sufferers. But Tatarnikov acted quickly and put into practice his CPR training to revive Richardson, who he met for the first time that weekend. see ‘WE DIDN’T’,, page 6

Battle of the church bells continues in PoCo By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

For Wendy McHaffie, the chiming bells of Our Lady of Assumption Church on Shaughnessy Street are a blaring nuisance that wake her up and keep her from enjoying her property. For Paul Dufault, a member of the Catholic parish’s building committee, the bells are a part of the church’s tradition and mark important events, including masses, funerals and weddings. It is an issue that has divided the neighbour-

Parishioners gathered to watch when a dome was lifted to the top of Our Lady of Assumption Church last year. hood and if the two sides cannot find a compromise on volume and frequency of ringing bells by the end of the summer, the city may

have to intervene. Dan Scoones, the city’s manager of bylaws, said more than 50 people from both sides of the bell battle packed

a community safety committee meeting to express their concerns. The committee has not taken any formal action but has asked the church to reduce its bell volume to the 69- to 70-decibel range and stick with a schedule that would eliminate hourly ringing. “The committee has said that we don’t think there has been enough back-and-forth,” Scoones said. “There hasn’t been enough of an effort to find a workable compromise.” D u f a u l t a ck n ow l edged that the church

has not followed the bell schedule it gave to the city in 2009 when it sought a variance from the municipality to build its bell tower. That schedule included ringing for mass on Sundays, weddings, funerals and other special occasions, not the hourly ringing between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. currently taking place. But he said the church should have no problem conforming to what the city has asked and expects to have its bell schedule reprogrammed in the next few days. He added that

steps have already been taken to reduce the volume to the desired level. “We have done everything the city has asked,” he said. “Getting rid of the hourly ringing should give [neighbours] a sense of long periods of quiet. We have the schedule and volume down.” McHaffie is not convinced. She said she measured a volume rating of 71.8 decibels on Monday and that even if the church can achieve a level of 70 decibels, that’s still too loud. She is also frustrated

that the church has not been quicker with reprogramming its bell schedule and that she still hears bells ringing every hour between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. “It is sad that a Catholic church is being so disrespectful to the neighbourhood,” she told The Tri-City News. “What happened to love thy neighbour?” PoCo’s community safety committee is expected to reconvene in the fall to determine what action might be necessary once the current trial period is over. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Coq. to restrict pot growing, selling Licensed grow ops allowed in industrial areas

HAVE YOUR SAY

• The city will hold a public hearing July 30 on the zoning bylaw changes for medical marijuana operations and dispensaries.

By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A growing number of complaints about medical marijuana operations in Coquitlam homes has prompted the city to look at changing its land use policies. This week, council gave first reading to a zoning bylaw amendment that would stop medical pot from being produced in residential areas except for personal use. As a result, thirdparty production — as regulated and permitted under the federal

TRI-CITY NEWS FILE PHOTO

Christopher MacLeod is with the Coquitlam Natural Path Society, which runs a compassion club in Maillardville. Marijuana Medical Access Re gulations (MMAR) — would be restricted to industrial sites; the city has designated five areas, all of

them close to Highway 1. As well, city staff are recommending council ban medical marijuana dispensaries not licensed by the federal

government. The latter move comes in response to a compassion club that opened up shop last month in Maillardville. Christopher MacLeod, spokesperson for the C o q u i t l a m N at u r a l Path Society, who was at Monday’s city council meeting with supporters, told The Tri-City News afterwards he agrees medical marijuana shouldn’t be grown in residential areas (he said he buys his weed from a licensed commercial grower). But he fears the zon-

ing change will close his club, which currently doesn’t have a business licence. Since his club opened on Brunette Avenue, MacLeod said he has about 100 customers from the TriCities, Burnaby, New Westminster, Surrey and Maple Ridge who have ailments that include cancer, diabetes, glaucoma, Crohn’s disease, Hepatitis C and arthritis. MacLeod uses the drug himself to treat juvenile arthritis in

his hips and legs. “It’s a non-toxic product that makes me live a normal life,” he said. Mayor Richard Stewart, who suffers f ro m ch ro n i c b a ck spasms and said he has had doctors recommend he take medical marijuana (he has refused), said while many councillors understand pot can ease someone’s debilitating pain, the distribution of it won’t be tolerated in Coquitlam. A big part of the problem is that the federal regulations are unclear, he said. As of May, 19, 482 Canadians had permits to possess medical marijuana under the MMAR while 12,649 people had licences to grow it, with 2,550 allowed to

grow for a third party. Coun. Craig Hodge, who said he has been inundated with complaints about a certain medical marijuana operation on Burke Mountain, said grow ops — legal or not — are a health and safety risk for emergency personnel and surrounding neighbours. Last month, at around 4:30 a.m., two people were arrested for allegedly breaking into a Town Centre-area house and stealing the medical pot plants, Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said Tuesday; the home’s occupants suffered nonlife threatening injuries. It was the only medical marijuana rip in the last three months, he said. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Woman breaks in to garage, takes car Police are searching for a woman after a 2 0 0 8 Vo l k sw a g e n Rabbit was stolen from a home in the 2000-block of Poel Place in Port Coquitlam. “She broke into the garage and somehow managed to get into the car,� said Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung. “She then used the garage door opener and off she went.� The vehicle was found unoccupied the next day in Vancouver with two unmatched licence plates that investigators believe were stolen from the 500-block of Blue Mountain Street in Coquitlam. At the time the vehicle was stolen in PoCo, it contained a new Lexmark laser printer, CDs and a black camera bag. None of the items was recovered after the Vancouver Police Department found the vehicle. The suspect is described as a Caucasian woman in her 30s and was seen on a surveillance camera in the area. Anyone with any information is asked to contact Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2012-18232.

Play it safe during summer months By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Law-abiding citizens are not the only people happy with the recent spate of warm, sunny weather. Thieves are pleased, too. Crime statistics from Coquitlam RCMP show a spike in residential break-ins involving unsecured doors and windows, with 13 occur ring between June 10 and July 7. “We’ve seen an increase of 10% compared to the same period last year,� said RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung. “Our specialized sections and gen-

eral duty are working together to target the cause of the problem.� Despite the hot weather, police are asking residents to close and lock all doors and windows when they are away from the home or sleeping. Any expensive items that can be viewed from outside should also be removed. Other crime prevention tips include: • Reinforce doors and hinges to prevent criminals from removing them. • Install deadbolt locks on all entrance doors. • Install sensors

and digital timers for lights both inside and outside the home. • Secure exterior lights to prevent tampering. • Bring newspapers and other items into your house daily and remember to notify delivery companies to stop delivering before going on vacation. “Community safety is everyone’s business,â€? Chung said. “The police can’t do it alone. You should report all suspicious activities to the police. If you see something, say something.â€? For more information go to coquitlam. rcmp.ca.

Drivers who park in spots reserved for the disabled without a permit should be taught a lesson, Coquitlam city council said this week. At Monday’s meeting, council voted unanimously to send a letter to the provincial government and to the Social Planning and Research Council of BC LOU SEKORA (SPARC), which issues permits for accessible parking spaces, to crack down on violators. Coun. Lou Sekora, who made the motion, said he has seen many incidents where drivers without permits park in handicap spots, denying disabled motorists spots to shops and services. Coun. Mae Reid, who seconded Sekora’s motion, said she has approached drivers at Coquitlam Centre mall who have abused the system. “I think there should be huge fines,” she said. “The only way to get to these people is touching their pocket books.” Sekora also took aim at SPARC for not enforcing the permits, especially those that have run past their due date. His comments were echoed by Mayor Richard Stewart, who has a handicap sign for his car. Recently, he received a notice in the mail from SPARC, asking him to sign a piece of paper and return it if he wanted to renew. “It shouldn’t be an automatic,” Stewart said. According to SPARC’s website, it’s an offence under Division 38 of the Motor Vehicle Act to use a permit past its expiry or to stop or park in a designated accessible parking zone without a handicap sign. As well, the city can fine under its street and traffic bylaw. At Monday’s meeting, council approved a $150 municipal ticket for stopping/parking in a restricted area under city jurisdiction. Council’s letter to Victoria and SPARC calls for a review of the parking permit program for disabled people. jwarren@tricitynews.com

“He just collapsed on the stairwell and we checked if he was breathing,” said the UBC pre-med student. “We didn’t feel a pulse so I just kind of jumped in there and did CPR.” With the help of Darren Witherspoon, who was also at the cabin, the pair were able to keep Tatarnikov alive until paramedics showed up. “It is just a surreal feeling,” Tatar nikov said. “You don’t realize it. I just did what I knew and I am happy it all worked out.” Richardson, who was in critical condition, was first taken to a hospital in Delta before being transported to Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster. There, he was put into an induced coma and surgery was done to repair his heart. E i g h t d ay s l at e r, Richardson was sent home, where he has been recovering nicely — he has even been able to go on a few hikes as he tries to regain his strength.

They assured me that his heart is fixed” Rose Richardson Ro s e R i ch a rd s o n , James’ mom, said that the doctors always knew that her son suffered from WPW but they were reticent to do surgery because the nodes around his heart were too close together.

After his recent cardiac arrest, however, they performed the surgery and Rose has been told that her son will no longer be in danger of the kind of episode he suffered in Point Roberts. “I think I will worry for the rest of my life but the doctors say he should be good,” she said. “They assured me that his heart is fixed.” On Monday, she and James visited the paramedics and firefighters in Point Roberts who responded to the call to thank them for their life-saving efforts. She has also thanked Tatarnikov and has little doubt that his early administration of CPR was the difference between life and death for

James. “Igor saved my son’s life,” she said. Due to retrograde amnesia resulting from the induced coma, the younger Richardson has little recollection of the events that transpired on the Canada D ay we e ke n d . H e doesn’t even remember what the beach house he stayed in looked like and had to re-introduce himself to Tatarnikov, when the pair met in the hospital after the incident. “It was pretty emotional,” James Richardson said of the meeting. “I was speechless. I couldn’t say anything to him. He saved my life and I don’t even know the guy.”

Burke fire changes By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Emergency response times are expected to improve on Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain when the volunteer fire station at Coast Meridian Road and Highland Drive switches this week to a full-time professional crew. Coquitlam Fire Chief Tony Delmonico said with the area rapidly developing, it was only a matter of time before service was expanded there. “In my view, it has been a shor tfall in our service since I got here four years ago,” Delmonico said. “It really comes down to response times.” Currently, it takes approximately 12 minutes for emergency crews to get to Burke Mountain from the Town Centre station, exceeding the city’s goal of reaching a fire within eight minutes. Eight minutes is typically the amount of time it takes for a blaze to move outside of

MORE ON PAGE 12 Q Fire displaces 4 in Coquitlam Q Cops seek fire witnesses its room of origin and Delmonico said that if crews can get to the scene within that time, the flames are easier to control. “With all the new buildings, we need to be in there in a more timely fashion,” he said. “It is a really long run for us.” According to Coquitlam Fire and Rescue statistics, for every 20,000 residents, the fire department gets 1,000 incident calls per year. With more than 20,000 people expected to move into the Burke Mountain area in the next 15 years, Delmonico said the fire service needs to prepare to expand in the northeast sector. A change in the types of homes being built in the area is another reason the service needs to be upgraded, he added. Before the recent in-

crease in construction activity, Burke Mountain consisted mainly of single-family homes on large lots, spread out from one another. But new townhouses, apartment complexes and single-family residents tightly clustered together means a fire could quickly spread to multiple homes in a short period of time. Eight additional staff members will be hired and an engine and ladder truck will now operate out of the auxiliary station on Coast Meridian until a new facility is built. The new hirings will cost the city approximately $500,000 per year. A new fire station is in the planning phase for the area and is expected to be located at David and Princeton avenues by 2015. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Metro to look at pay in fall www.tricitynews.com

continued from front page

Other cities where mayors got double-digit pay hikes that helped lift regional directors’ fees were Abbotsford (up 13.3% to $102,900), L a n g l e y To w n s h i p (up 12.5% to $105,456) and New Westminster (up 11% to $91,015.) (Abbotsford is included in Metro’s calculation even though its directors only vote on Metro parks matters.) But Jackson says Metro used the wrong number for her salary — she says her actual stipend is $110,653 but the regional district added in her car allowance for the first time. Cities that added in their mayors’ car or other allowances as part of the salary reported to Metro this year include Coquitlam, Abbotsford, Maple Ridge and Vancouver. In contrast, Metro used salaries without car allowances for Burnaby’s Derek Corrigan ($117,532) and Surrey’s Dianne Watts ($116,717). If their car allowances are added in the future, the regional fees could be driven higher again. Metro officials say they used the figures local cities gave and had told them to include car or other allowances that are counted as taxable income. Jackson argued that all the car allowances should be stripped out and the regional fees should be recalculated based solely on mayors’ base salaries, resulting in a modest cut in the fees for Metro directors. And she said Metro’s use of inconsistent salary figures has resulted in an inaccurate calculation of the fees and has artificially inflated how much Metro directors are paid for each meeting. “The methodology they’re using is totally flawed in my opinion,” she said. “It’s got to be tightened up. I think we have to re-analyze this again. It draws into question the entire method of the calculation.” She wants the issue brought up for discussion at an upcoming Metro mayors’ committee meeting, where she will press for changes. “You’ve got to compare apples to apples. How can you possibly have anything meaningful if everyone is reporting differently?” Metro board chair Gre g Moore ag reed Jackson’s concerns will be heard — perhaps in September — but said the aim will be to clarify the system and ensure staff get consistent numbers from each city. “We will bring that

See the web version of this story at tricitynews.com for an interactive graph showing changes in the salaries of Metro Vancouver mayors since 2006 back to Metro to have that discussion,” he said. DirecGREG MOORE tors don’t relish reopening the debate on how they’re paid. Civic leaders have admitted before the automated increases for Metro fees look bad but they’ve done nothing to stop them, arguing it would be worse to be seen directly voting to give themselves pay hikes. Jackson isn’t arguing to repeal the bylaw that requires the formuladriven pay calculations. But she wants the region to consider a cap on annual director fee increases, perhaps so they can’t rise by more than the rate of inflation.

She admitted part of the problem is most cities in the region have their own system to recalculate their councils’ pay, often based on an average of what elected officials receive at other Metro cities of similar size. The effect is that when some increase, the rest are later ratcheted up as well. The average pay of a mayor in the region has climbed 33% since 2006 from $63,000 to $84,000. The biggest increases have been in Langley Township, Langley City and Maple Ridge, where mayors now earn at least 60% more than they did in 2006. Metro directors received nearly $714,000 last year through the $330 meeting fee, also collecting $44,000 in travel expenses. jnagel@blackpress.ca

Play it safe near water

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside

T

he allure of the Fraser River is a powerful thing, even as, recently, it approached levels not seen here in 40 years. But it can also be dangerous. At the height of fears about flooding several weeks ago, both city and provincial officials urged residents to stay away from swollen rivers — with good reason. We’ve already seen one death in B.C. Edward Posnikoff, 72, was standing on a bridge that was swept away near his home in the Crescent Valley near Nelson on a Saturday evening in late June. That tragedy prompted Chris Duffy of Emergency Management B.C. to highlight the danger of high river levels, unstable banks and debris. He’s warning people to stay clear of streams and rivers. His concern echoes what other government officials have said: River banks are no place for curious onlookers. Said Chilliwack emergency co-ordinator Jim MacDonald: “What looks like stable ground may not in fact be stable.” Even under normal conditions, a river can be a dangerous place. Nearly every year there are reports of fishers being swept away after slipping on the muddy banks. With the Fraser and other rivers running fast, one mistake could be fatal. And even though flooding concerns have abated in and around the Tri-Cities, all those warnings should be remembered and people should play it safe, during warmer weather, near any water, whether flowing or relatively still. Getting a closer look is not worth a lost life. – The Chilliwack Progress (Black Press)

Information Highway meets actual highways BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA y the time you read this, I should be in Vanderhoof, the geographical centre of B.C., to visit relatives. Born in the Okanagan, raised in the Peace country and working for 20 years in Metro Vancouver, I’ve driven from one end of the province to the other more times than I can count. A similar trip last year began just as a huge mudslide was cleared near Chilliwack. Other drives have featured mid-summer hail piled 10 cm deep on the Coquihalla, a near miss between two moose in the Pine Pass, plus the usual blizzards and hundreds of traffic jams for construction, accidents and growing urban volume delays. This time, I’ve got a new tool on board, the mobile version of DriveBC.ca on my BlackBerry. Launched two years, ago, the mobile site has taken off with the surging

popularity of smartphones. In the past year, DriveBC’s online traffic averaged 1.2 million visits a month, about half to the five-year-old desktop site and half from mobile users. It’s by far the most popular B.C. government website. I asked DriveBC technical leader Nainesh Agarwal for these stats and he said even he was surprised by the surge in mobile traffic in recent months. But trying out the mobile site, it’s easy to see the appeal. With a few clicks, the phone displays incident reports and web camera images for my chosen route. Webcams have been added steadily all over the province and now watch 18 key locations on Vancouver Island, 93 in the Lower Mainland, 73 in the southern Interior, 35 in the north and 13 at CanadaU.S. border crossings.

‘COURAGE’

The Editor, I have enor mous admiration for Erica Salemink’s courage in sharing her story with the public. If only our society made adequate resources available to help people and their families struggling with mental illness, this tragedy might have been avoided. Let’s all do what we can to improve things. We can persuade our gover nment to properly fund treatment programs, donate our time and money to charitable org anizations like the Canadian Mental Health Association, and support family and friends who are dealing with mental illness.

The Editor, Re. “Mayors serve up laughs at BBQ” (The TriCity News, July 11). It looks like laughs were all the local mayors served up as I couldn’t find one little gem in your entire reporting of the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce’s annual lovein, better known as the mayors’ barbecue. And when it comes to disappointments, at least from what I read in your article, Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore’s excuses for not at least considering the possibility of amalgamation never fails to lead the way. While he would like “to see someone who doesn’t come up and say, ‘Why don’t you do this?’ but instead say, ‘Do this because…,’” I would like to see him not throw out meaningless statistics to serve his position of wishing to maintain the status quo despite unnecessary added taxes to the residents of the TriCities.

The Editor, Re. “A sweet boy’s spiral, a mother’s life lost” (The Tri-City News, July 4). I am writing in response to some of the false information given in the abovereferenced story. As a nurse who has worked in the emerg ency psychiatric department of the Royal Columbian Hospital for the past 17 years, I was alarmed to read that this young man was supposedly held in a “padded room,” was made to sit on the floor and was handcuffed to a bed. I can tell you for a fact that the seclusion rooms are not “padded,” that each patient has a mattress to sleep/sit on and that never in my career has anyone been handcuffed to a bed. The patient is monitored 24 hours a day by nursing staff and all basic needs are met. Security personnel are often present in the area for the safety of all. It is these misconceptions surrounding how mental health patients are treated that cause many not to seek treatment which can lead to tragedies such as this one. Darlene Paisley, Coquitlam Editor’s note: Ms. Paisley is correct, the room was not padded; our apologies for the error. On the other two points, the article did not state Blake Salemink was forced to sit on the floor, just that he was sitting on the floor when his sister encountered him. And Erica Salemink maintains her brother was handcuffed to his bed.

4 homeless after fire By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Four people are without a home after fire ripped through their Westwood Plateau house shortly after 3:30 a.m. last Friday. Fire crews believe a barbecue or lit candles on the back deck of a Cliffrose Crescent home are responsible for the blaze, which torched most of the main floor and did significant damage to a basement suite. Coquitlam Fire Chief Tony Delmonico said the fire burned extremely hot and four neighbouring houses were also damaged.

“They all had vinyl siding that was damaged,” he said. “It was so hot that one of the windows cracked and a skylight melted as well.” By the time crews arrived, the home was fully engulfed, with flames coming out of the roof and all four sides of the building. It took firefighters about 30 minutes to contain the blaze and members were just returning to the hall at around noon on Friday. Delmonico said prel i m i n a r y e s t i m at e s pegged the damage at more than $300,000 for the home where the fire started and about $5,000 to $10,000 each for the

neighbouring houses. Two people lived on the main floor of the home and two more lived in a basement suite on the property. Nobody was hurt in the blaze. With the war mer weather, Delmonico said fires from barbecues, tiki torches and backyard candles become more prevalent. Residents should be certain that all flames are properly extinguished before putting them away. Barbecues should also be in proper working order and propane tanks should not be left in the sun. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Witnesses sought in Mundy fire The investigation into a fire that destroyed a picnic area in Mundy Park has gone cold and the Coquitlam RCMP are asking the public for help. Despite issuing a news release and canvassing the neighbourhood, police said no leads have been generated since the fire occurred on March 6. “We are renewing the call for witnesses because we’ve found a fingerprint at the crime scene,” said Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie

Chung. “However, we couldn’t find a match when we ran it through our database.” Emerg ency crews were called out to the picnic area, at Hillcrest Street and Winslow Avenue, for an early morning fire after a resident called 911. By the time firefighters arrived, the picnic tables and their wooden covering were engulfed in flames. After the blaze was extinguished, fire investigators combed the area for clues while Mounties canvassed the neigh-

bourhood for information. Chung said the area was scattered with liquor containers, some of which were partially full when police searched the area. Anyone who has any information about the incident is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2012-5902. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or visit www.solvecrime.ca. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Next week: A family’s tragic story

By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

F

or a nurse at Riverview Hospital, work was about much more than folding crisp hospital corners on bed sheets and dispensing pills. Nurses coaxed patients into all manner of activities, from fashion shows and embroidery work to dancing, gardening and pub therapy. They aimed to make life as normal as possible for patients, in a way that would complement the medical care administered by doctors, always with the hope that each individual could somehow find their footing again in society. The common element in whatever service the nurses were delivering, from the first graduating class of 1932 through to the last handful caring for the remaining patients in the summer of 2012, is compassion. “Essondale was the ultimate in care at some point in its existence,” said Fred Bennett, a Riverview nurse from 1959 to 1998. What struck Bennett most from his nearly 40-year career was the initiative nurses took to implement programs that would benefit the patients, often at the nurses’ own expense. Bennett spearheaded the pub therapy program, which started in 1973, to offer patients a “normal” social experience. With little to no funding available, Bennett tracked down donated materials and wrangled help from the occupational therapy department to build what was dubbed the “Longhorn Saloon.” It was located in one of the East Lawn wards; male patients were invited to enjoy a couple glasses of beer, and to invite women from other wards for a glass of shandy or ginger ale. “The idea was to provide an atmosphere that would promote socialization between patients,” Bennett explained. “One of the aspects of mental illness is isolation and an inability to interact with other people, so we tried to promote that.” Anna Tremere, a nurse from 1965 to 2001, remembers that nursing duties differed depending on whether you had a morning or afternoon shift. Mornings focused on

giving patients their medications and sending them off to their various jobs and activities for the day. Afternoon shifts, however, meant trying to find ways to keep patients entertained in the large day rooms. “You learned to play every card game imaginable,” Tremere said.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

In Riverview’s early days, the introduction to nursing came with the first taste of life away from home. It was March 17, 1941 when S. Fraser (she asked that her first name not be used), then 20 years old, left her New Westminster home for life as a Riverview nurse.

Her family doctor had mentioned Essondale was looking for nurses and, eager for a change from the long days at her family’s store, she didn’t hesitate. “When I got home, I phoned another girlfriend I knew and we went together and applied,” Fraser said. When she arrived, however, Fraser remembers feeling shocked. “It’s different than at home but I was fortunate because... in those days, if you knew somebody they helped you,” and there were a couple of young women Fraser had known in high school already at the junior nurses’ residence. “It was fun for me,” Fraser added, despite the long days of work and study. “We worked 11-hour days, and we often had classes at night. Now, they do all the learning before [putting it into practice], but we didn’t have that. It took us three years and we had classes during the summertime. I still don’t approve of the way they do things now.” The training was “very formal,” Tremere added. “There were great expectations in how you carried yourself and wore your uniform. We stood up when the head nurse, a supervisor or doctor entered the room... and we were never on a first-name basis. We learned respect; we wore the uniform and we wore it correctly.” Students rotated between classroom study and shifts on the wards, always putting into practice what they had learned. Part of that work involved keeping the hospital gleaming. “We cleaned floors, we polished the furniture,” Tremere said. “Because we lived there, there was really a sense of community.” Bennett said each nursing student carried an “experience book” listing the skills, tasks and responsibilities they needed to master, and those books were then signed by supervisors. “You did everything,” Bennett added. “One of the first things you learned how to do was running the floor polisher.” see ‘IT IT JUST SEEMED SEEMED’,, page 15

RIVERVIEW STORIES

‘It just seemed the most natural thing to go out there and nurse’ Fraser remembers chronic staff shortages during the war years. At the same time, the hospital’s patient ranks were swelling to more than 4,000. Essondale hired more aides to cover the shortages and, in 1944, it scrapped the policy preventing married women from working at the hospital. Tremere said she always knew she would go to work at Riverview one day. Her mother and aunt were both psychiatric nurses and Tremere never questioned she would do the same thing. “It just seemed the most natural thing to go out there and nurse,” she said, though she remembered walking into a ward for the first time and seeing 175 patients. “It’s quite something when you’re 18 years old.”

continued from page 13 It wasn’t the most glamorous job but it was a solid career path for Bennett and many others at a time when there were few options. Bennett was 19 years old, a year out of high school with little in the way of job prospects, but a chat with a friend’s older brother who was already a year into the psychiatric nursing program piqued his interest. It didn’t hurt that nursing students received a small stipend during their training period: $150 per month for the first six months and $225 by second year. Female nursing students, who were treated differently than their male counterparts on many levels, received a smaller stipend.

Riverview’s volunteer department ensured every patient received Christmas presents. Staff from each ward would go to the volunteer centre with a list of their patients and pick out gifts to hand out on Christmas Day.

PATIENT CARE

Both Bennett and Tremere started their nursing careers after the introduction of chlorpromazine, the anti-psychotic drug that revolutionized treatment for the mentally ill.

But Fraser remembers one of the first patients she cared for was one of the first at Essondale to undergo a more invasive treatment: a lobotomy. Tremere acknowledged that caring for the mentally ill has come a

long way since Riverview opened in 1913. “Nobody knew how to deal with the mentally ill,” she said. “There were no therapies and it was a very difficult learning process.” One of Tremere’s first memories of Riverview was arriving in the spring, when the trees were ablaze with delicate pink and white blossoms. The idyllic scene was at odds with what she was hearing, however. “I could hear these sounds and it was people, it was the patients on the verandas and they were yelling. It was very noisy,” Tremere said. When Essondale opened, patients were treated mainly with hydrotherapy baths, sometimes for up to nine hours; the more stable patients worked at Colony Farm and did other occupational

therapies. There was also shock therapy, insulin coma therapy and surgery. Tremendous change was ushered in with the introduction of new medication in the early 1950s. Patients were stabilized, and the hospital was able to open its previously locked wards so patients could move about the expansive grounds and take part in more activities. Treatments continued to evolve even as care for the mentally ill began shifting to smaller, communitybased facilities in the late 1970s and early ’80s. Fraser, Bennett and Tremere moved up the nursing ranks before retiring, and look back on their careers — and Riverview — with fondness. “I think back over the years and the thousands and thousands who were

given treatment successfully, either in long-term or short-term care,” Bennett said. “A lot of those people are in not as good of a circumstance as they were when they were in hospital. It rankles with a lot of us.” Shutting down Riverview, the three nurses agreed, was a step in the wrong direction. “Those 244 acres represent so much of our community, and not just Coquitlam,” Tremere said, noting the space is about more than parcels of land to be divided and developed. “I think it would be a travesty, it would be disrespectful to do that,” Tremere said. “If you take away what’s there, you take away the history, you wipe out the legacy of the lives that were there.”

A (very, very) compact car could have large impact Douglas staffer donates little car to help students By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A donated Mercedes Benz has prompted Douglas College to collect $5,000 in student aid donations through an innovative website while helping sick kids at the same time. The kid-sized car — a convertible, ’60s-style Mercedes Benz 300SL, to be exact — was donated by a staff member who works in the finance department and regularly sees students in financial need. “I’m a strong supporter of the [Douglas College] foundation because I believe in education, and sometimes kids don’t have the money or the support to make it,” said Alec Logan, the manager of accounting information for self-funded activities. “It’s a crucial time in their life... and sometimes they just need that little bit of support to make the decision to pursue an education.” Logan had recently purchased his own Mercedes and was back at the dealership for a service appointment when he discovered the pint-sized car was available for purchase — the only Mercedes you can buy for less than $1,000, he joked — so Logan added it to his bill and donated it to Douglas. Andrew Senjack,

alumni relations co-ordinator, decided to use the website indiegogo.com to collect donations after a colleague suggested it, noting it had been used to raise nearly $700,000 for a bullied bus monitor in the U.S. “We thought maybe this site was something we could use to our advantage,” Senjack said, since indiegogo.com allows donors to post comments and it provides a link to information about Douglas College as well for any non-local donors. Staff spent about an hour shooting a video in the Douglas College atrium, featuring a little boy zooming around in the battery-operated car, edited it and posted it on the site. The school hopes to raise $5,000 in donations to pay for tuition and books for a full-time Douglas College student for one year. If it reaches its goal by Oct. 4, it will donate the car to the Ronald McDonald House for Sick Children. “Not only is this supporting students, which one of our own staff initiated, but it’s going to end up bringing smiles to the faces of sick kids,” said Hazel Postma, associate external vice-president. In just a few days, the fund has collected nearly $700 toward its goal. • For more information, and to donate, visitindiegogo.com and search for Douglas College. spayne@tricitynews.com

Peak finalist to sing for The Voice By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Port Coquitlam resident Alexandria Maillot, 19, is a Peak Performance Project finalist, who will auditioned for producers with The Voice television program next month.

lexandria Maillot has plenty on her plate these days. N o t o n l y i s t h e Po r t Coquitlam resident a Top 20 finalist in the Peak Performance Project — an annual radio challenge by 100.5 The Peak to find new talent — but Maillot is also getting ready for a number of live shows this summer, including auditioning for The Voice. The 19-year-old singer/songwriter will be travelling to Burbank, Calif., to play three songs before producers of the NBC hit TV program on Aug. 25; she has picked Duffy’s Mercy, Rolling in the Deep by Adele and an original tune to highlight her voice. “I was invited by one of the producers to perform at a closed audition,” she said. “They want to get to know me as a person and find out my story. It’s really exciting.” Still, she won’t get much of an opportunity to tour the Hollywood sites as Maillot is due in Princeton on Aug. 28 for The Peak’s week-long boot camp, where she and 19 other musicians/bands will grind down their work and publicity campaigns with professionals in the music industry. After that, she’ll be judged on her live gig at the Red Room in Vancouver,

either in September or October, as well as how she does in her five challenges (marketing, branding, songwriting, etc.). The Peak 2012 winner will be announced Nov. 2 at The Commodore Ballroom and will gain $100,500. Maillot was thrilled to be selected out of 300 contest applicants. She got the news back in May. “I was a listening to the radio and they were down to the last five for the Top 20 and I thought, ‘I’m not in it. Whatever,’” she recalled. “I kind of walked away but when I came back to the computer, The Peak had tweeted ‘Congratulations, Alexandria, for making the Top 20.’ I was like, ‘Oh my God. No way.’ I just screamed.” But competitions are nothing new for Maillot. At the age of 10, she flew on an all-expenses paid trip to Bucharest, Romania, after her original song was accepted for a children’s festival; the next year, she was in Cairo, Egypt, for a similar event. “That really opened my eyes to what was out there,” said Maillot, who splits her time between PoCo and Parksville. “I had never travelled anywhere before so they were both lifechanging experiences.” see DEBUT EP EP,, page 24

Groovin’ to Benson, Smith at the Grill By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

George Benson sings, They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway. And Olaf de Shield hopes to recite that very tune — among many others — under bright and sunny skies on Saturday at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre. That’s when de Shield and his six-piece rhythm and blues band, Soultrax, will perform out of endearing respect and admiration for the guitar legend in A Tribute to George Benson & Jimmy Smith as part of Evergreen’s fourth annual Music on the Grill summer concert series. “It’s a tribute, not a replicate,” insists de Shield, who first heard and became instantly hooked on Benson’s music when he was a child and casually listened to a tape of the performer’s music his dad owned. “It really is a tribute to what he’s all about, and his fire and energy.” In his late teens, de Shield recalls actually meeting the now 69-year-old Benson at a Toronto club in the mid-1970s, a memory of the 10-time Grammy Award-winning musician he holds with great fondness. “The place was full but it wasn’t packed,” de Shield recalls.

Soultrax will play Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre on Saturday as part of the facility’s Music on the Grill annual series. “I went up to him [during a break] and shook his hand. There weren’t a lot of videos back then, so I actually got to see him — and his hands — in person. He was a very amazing guy, just sitting back having a Heineken.

“He was great... easy-going. That solidified my respect and admiration for him.” As for Smith, the Vancouver-resident de Shield says he was “a master” jazz musician whose performances on the Hammond B-3 electric organ helped popular the instrument before his passing in 2005. Smith would play primarily blues and soul, although de Shield recalls him once doing a funky rendition of The Rolling Stones’ rock classic, Satisfaction. Enter Soultrax keyboard player and Chicago native Fran Jare, who joins de Shield along with acoustic/bass guitarist Brent Gubbles, drummer Don Powrie, saxophonist Dave Say and Derry Byrne on trumpet. Although he’s uncertain if they ever played together despite both enjoying their initial sense of musical fame about the same time in the 1960s, de Shield believes the joined talents of Benson and Smith jive wonderfully. For the Coquitlam performance, de Shield quips: “It’s a great, joyful music [show] to get into and groove along with.” • Music on the Grill tickets are $50 for a barbecue (7 p.m.) and concert (8 p.m.), with a table of eight at $350. For the concert only, tickets are $30. Call 604-927-6555 or visit www. evergreenculturalcentre.ca for more information. lpruner@tricitynews.com

Musicals for youth By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

It’s a week before showtime and Theatrix artistic director Deb Solberg is without a pivotal male character — and two dogs — for her musical Legally Blonde. Things are a little stressful, to say the least, but the Coquitlam resident believes all will be resolved in time for the show, which runs July 25 to 28 at the Evergreen Cultural Centre. Solberg has lined up 18 actors for the production, ranging in age from 14 to 19 — many of whom appeared a few years back in Theatrix’s High School Musical. They liked performing together and have kept in touch via social media, Solberg said. Cast as the ditzy Elle Woods is Cassidy

Stahr, a Gleneagle secondary student who is making her debut with the company. And Matthew Stewart — Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart’s son — will play the role of Woods’ love interest at Harvard University. Solberg wanted to put on Legally Blonde last year; however, she changed her mind after Terry Fox secondary chose it for its drama students. Because of the teachers’ spring job action, it didn’t run “so I had a few kids begging me to do the show this summer and I thought, ‘Why not? It’s a fun, frothy play that’s full of lots of laughs.’” Solberg also said she picked Honk! Jr. to run concurrently for younger audiences in the afternoon because “I had done it before and, recently, things have been a little hectic around here so I just wanted to take it easy.”

Solberg said the two musicals have strong story lines and good messages: Honk! Jr., a musical adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story The Ugly Duckling, promotes tolerance while Legally Blonde, a Broadway show and 2001 hit movie starring Reese Witherspoon, teaches about being savvy and successful. “Everyone should come see them because they’re fun and light-hearted,” Solberg said of the Theatrix performances. “And, they’re a good way to introduce kids to the theatre.” • Honk! Jr. and Legally Blondee run July 25 to 28 at Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam), with curtains at 1 and 7 p.m., respectively. Tickets start at $10.

Gotta sing! Gotta dance! By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The room is buzzing as Erika Babins wraps up a musical theatre performance for 30 youth at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts. The new summer instructor at the Maillardville facility had two sets of classes for five- to seven-year-olds as well as a more advance course for eight- to 10-year-olds who finished their week with a song and dance for an audience. “It was really fun and they did very well,” Babins said of her students afterwards. “It’s amazing what they can do in just a week.” Musical theatre isn’t like other arts programs, she said. When participants sign up for dance lessons, they learn new steps; for singing classes, it’s all song. “But in musical theatre, you have to remember your words and notes and dance positions all at the same time,” Babins said. Multi-tasking in the studio translates well to everyday life, especially for building social skills, taking direction and learning under pressure in a group environment. “And it’s just a great way to build confidence and get moving,” she said. Babins is no stranger to the stage: A 2011 graduate of Capilano University’s Musical Theatre program, she was the assistant choreographer in last year’s Theatre Under the Stars’ production of Bye Bye Birdie. The Richmond native studied at Burke Academy of Dance and at the Gateway Academy of the Perfor ming Ar ts. Last December, Babins also played a nun and ballroom dancer in The Sound of Musicc for Gateway. It’s that company Babins is basing

Erika Babins is the new musical theatre instructor at Place des Arts this summer. her new Musical Theatre Intensive program on at Place des Arts. The allday intensive, which runs July 30 to Aug. 30 for 12- to 14-year-olds, “is similar to a camp that I observed while at Gateway: You work with the students to form a musical. You build a script together and, at the end of it, you have a 20- or 25-minute play. “It’s something that, I believe, every musical theatre student should have on their resume because it’s a play that you make and learn from scratch. It’s something to be proud of.” • To sign up for Musical Theatre Intensive for 12- to 14-year-olds, call Place des Arts (1120 Brunette Ave., Coquitlam) at 604-664-1636 or visit www.placedesarts.ca. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Peewee Saints bag B.C. crown

Course record boosts Yoo to jr. glory

PoCo parades to perfect season with 23-0 record By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

So what does a team of 11- and 12-year-old lacrosse players do after winning a B.C. provincial crown? Head straight to Me-nEd’s, chomp down pizza and slurp Mountain Dew from the championship cup. PoCo Saints did the fairly obvious for their age group in terms of celebration after and, having entered the sixteam A1 draw as handson favourites, surprised few by parading to the Peewee provincial title Sunday in Richmond. Only it was anything but easy. “There was a lot of pressure, everyone was gunning for us,” Saints head coach Josh Wahl told The Tri-City News. “We went 16-0 during the season and we came into the provincials as the team to beat. It’s tough to keep the motivation high and take it to the next level, but the guys did it and deserve full credit for it.” The Saints went 5-0 in round-robin play, then met up with a their TriCity arch rivals, the Coquitlam Adanacs, in the semifinals. T he A’s g ave the Saints all they could handle for 40 minutes, playing to a 3-3 deadlock after two periods. Then Wahl and his coaching staff, including assistants Dave Kidd, Chad Miller and Tyler Pace, had a rather blunt, yet prophetic, chat with the PoCo boys. “We had a little talk and told them to wake up,” Wahl said. “I told them this could be your last chance in minor lacrosse to go out a provincial champion... to go out and give it your all. And that’s exactly

By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

PoCo’s Anica Yoo is both a record breaker and provincial blueribbon winner. A new women’s course record in the third round propelled Yoo to the B.C. junior girls golf championship last week at Osoyoos Golf and Country Club. Yoo, 18, fired a sizzling 65 on T h u r s d ay a n d closed out play Friday with a fourunder-par 68 to claim the crown by four strokes over Surrey’s Taylor Kim, her 17-yearold Team Canada development squad partner, amid a 24-finisher field. After trading birdies with bogeys on the first six holes Friday, Yoo caught fire and carded four birdies over a fivehole stretch starting on the eighth. “I struggled a bit in the beginning of the round,” Yoo said. “I was able to make birdie then bogey, birdie then bogey. It wasn’t until the eighth hole that I got my round going.” Not only did Yoo birdie four out of five holes, she did so all on par 4’s, including the third most difficult hole on the day – the 350-yard ninth.

A PoCo Saints’ player winds up for a shot while a Coquitlam Adanacs’ foe gives chase during a B.C. Midget provincial lacrosse semifinal game Saturday night at Port Moody Rec Complex. The Saints won a double overtime thriller 5-4 before falling in the final to New Westminster. what they did.” Boy, did they. The Saints pumped in six unanswered markers in the final frame and put an exclamation point on the victory and soar into the championship final versus the New Westminster Salmonbellies. Prior to the playoff round, the Saints thumped Saanich 14-2, thumped Coquitlam 8-2, trimmed Juan de Fuca 3-2, tripped New West 3-2 in overtime and handled Ridge Meadows 8-3. “I’ve had this same group of boys since they were in Mini-Tyke, so it

made it that much more special,” said Wahl, who will guide Team BC, including seven players from PoCo and three from Coquitlam, at the Peewee nationals Aug. 4-7 in Whitby, Ont. The Saints’ Austin Wahl was named to the provincial first allstar team and was also chosen tour nament MVP. Game MVPs for PoCo included Wahl, goalie Will Holden, Nico Pace, Mitch Bye, Pierce Or miston and Evan Wray. Other players on the champion Saints were Joey Cote, Avery Elrick,

Reece Hrycan, Alan Gane, Leo Minelli, Jack Hamilton, Brett Ginac, Cam Way, Max DiSalvo, Kyle Olstead, Adam Sahaydak and Trent Kellner. Way also won his team’s Warrior Fair Play award.

MIDGET MEDALS

The host PoCo Saints dropped a tough 4-3 decision to the New Westminster Salmonbellies in Sunday’s final of the B.C. Midget provincial lacrosse championships. The Saints settled

for the silver medal after having tripped the Coquitlam Adanacs 5-4 in a double overtime thriller between the Tri-City rivals Saturday night at Port Moody Rec Complex, the co-host site. The Adanacs went on to earn bronze via a 3-1 triumph earlier Sunday over Saanich. In round-robin play, PoCo opened with a 6-3 triumph over Ridge Meadows, then blasted Saanich 9-2 and Juan de Fuca 9-3. The Saints then dropped a 7-6 overtime heartbreaker to New West before

being bounced 4-2 by Coquitlam. As for the Adanacs, they opened with a 5-4 victory over Saanich but were then spilled 5-3 by New West. The A’s recovered for a 9-4 win over Ridge Meadows before slipping 9-6 to Juan de Fuca and then doubling the Saints. Warrior Fair Play t e a m aw a r d s we n t to Coquitlam’s Jake Sundar and Mitch Milani of PoCo, with Saints head coach Mike Kuppan netting Midget A1 Fair Play Coach honours.
