Silver for PoMo’s Guloien

JASON RANSOM/CANADIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE

Canada’s women’s eight rowing team — including Krista Guloien from Port Moody, third from left — celebrates its silver medal performance Thursday at the 2012 London Olympic Games. The rowers on the team are, from left: Janine Hanson, Rachelle Viinberg, Guloien, Lauren Wilkinson, Natalie Mastracci, Ashley Brzozowicz, Darcy Marquardt, Andreanne Morin and Lesley Thompson-Willie.

Rower ‘so proud of what we accomplished here’ Gold was goal but Canadians still are thrilled By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Winning an Olympic silver medal Thursday wasn’t just the highlight of Krista Guloien’s rowing career — it marked the pinnacle of her life, so far. G u l o i e n , o f Po r t

Moody, helped d C a n a d a cl a i m i t s second silver and seventh m e d a l overall at the London 2012 Olympic c S u m m e r Games. The U.S. US won gold in the 2,000 m race in a time of six minutes, 10.59 seconds, followed by Canada in 6:12.06 and bronze-

med dalist the Ne etherlands in n 6:13.12. “A s o f right now, this is it. There’s nothing b e t t e r, ” the e 32-yearold Guloien ttold ld Th The Tri-City Newss on her cell phone while heading to CTV’s Olympic broadcast studio in London. “I’m still going to

work to try to achieve better in life in some way but right now, I’m not really sure how,” she said. Four years after a gutpunching fourth-place finish at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the Canadian crew rallied down the stretch to reach the podium and re-establish Canada as one of the top women’s crews in the world. see GULOIEN’S, GULOIEN S, page A6

$1,500 fine in accident that killed 2 By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

An illustration of the planned Lincoln Station on the Evergreen Line, to be located on the east side of the Coquitlam Centre mall property, two blocks north of Coquitlam Central Station and two blocks from the Douglas College Station.

Coquitlam council to weigh in on Evergreen station names Will end of line be at ‘Lafarge Lake Station?’ By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Burquitlam Station is a no-brainer when it comes to naming new stops along the future Evergreen Line. But what about monikers for Coquitlam’s other three stations? This fall, city council will submit a formal list of station names for the $1.4-billion rapid transit system, due to be running from Burnaby’s Lougheed Town Centre to Coquitlam City Centre by the summer of 2016. Monday, TransLink’s Jeff Busby made a few recommendations to the city’s council-incommittee about station name options, which are

intended to be “simple, logical, self-locating and durable,” he said. They are: • Douglas College Station: The working name for the Evergreen Line terminus — located at the corner of Pinetree and Guildford ways and surrounded by civic, institutional and recreation facilities — isn’t a good fit, Busby said, as the college could, one day, become a university; as well, it could be confused with the college’s New Westminster campus. Suggested: Lafarge Lake Station, Evergreen Station, Evergreen Park Station or Guildford Station. • Lincoln Station: This city-owned station — to be funded by developers building highrises in close proximity as well as a $7-million grant from the federal government

— was announced last month. It will be built on Coquitlam Centre p r o p e r t y, b e t w e e n Lincoln and Northern avenues, and will be the closest point to the mall, with no direct access to Lincoln Avenue. Suggested: Northern Avenue Station, Lincoln Station, Coquitlam Centre Station or Coquitlam City Centre Station. • Coquitlam Central Station: This working name matches the existing stop for the West Coast Express station and bus loop. Busby said it’s preferred to have a reflective title for the busy hub when the Evergreen Line runs through it. Still, he said, the name isn’t entirely appropriate because it implies the area is the city centre, which is more to the north. Suggested: Coquitlam Station,

Mariner Way Station or Ranch Park Station. During the committee’s discussion, councillors each gave their recommended station names, with Lafarge Lake, Lincoln, Coquitlam Central and Burquitlam at the top. But councillors Linda Reimer and Mae Reid said they would like to see “Coquitlam Exchange Station” for the West Coast Express stop; Coun. Craig Hodge said he’d prefer “Evergreen Station” for the ter minus as the city owns land in the area for potential residential/commercial growth. “Evergreen Station” was Coun. Lou Sekora’s pick for the West Coast Express hub while Coun. Selina Robinson said most people wouldn’t know where “Lincoln Station” is located. Meanwhile, Coun.

Terry O’Neill said he wants to see the entire route renamed to the Evergreen-Millennium Line as it will be a continuous link when it opens in four years. And Mayor Richard Stewart said “Evergreen Line” makes no sense to him. He made the same comment about the other SkyTrain lines — Expo, Millennium and Canada — in Metro Vancouver, which he said do not identify their destination. Instead, the mayor said, he would like to have more “wayfinding names” for rapid transit alignments, as in Asia. The TransLink board is expected to make its final decision on the Evergreen Line station names after reviewing Coquitlam council’s recommendations this fall; Port Moody is also undergoing the same exercise for its two stations. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Ryan Miller will pay a $1,500 fine for causing a horrific crash almost four years ago on Highway 1 that killed two young children and left another paralyzed. On Monday, Miller was in B.C. Provincial Court in Port Coquitlam to plead guilty to driving without due care and attention, a charge under the Motor Vehicle Act, in the November 2008 crash in Coquitlam. Eight members of the Moeller family were heading east on Highway 1 when smoke filled their minivan; the driver, Maria Moeller, stopped in the HOV lane and turned on the van’s hazard lights. Several vehicles avoided the stopped van and called 911 but Miller, who was alone in his BMW X5 SUV and driving in the HOV lane, slammed into the back of the vehicle. Of the three Moeller brothers sitting in the back bench, nine-year-old Andrew and six-year-old Matthew died shortly after the crash. Karl, who was eight at the time, was left a paraplegic. Miller read a statement in court Monday morning saying the burden of the Moeller’s loss is an overwhelming, “insurmountable burden” for him and his family. “I have a child of my own and there’s not a moment that goes by that I don’t think of the Moeller family and the extreme loss and sorrow that they must live with each day,” he said. Judge Sheni Dossa said the crash was caused by Miller’s momentary lapse in judgements and ordered him to pay the $1,500 fine plus a $225 victim surcharge. It will be up to the superintendent of motor vehicles to decide on a driving prohibition. spayne@tricitynews.com

Judge to plead guilty A Port Moody man charged in connection with the 2011 Stanley Cup riot has switched his plea. Patrick Judge, 25, will plead guilty to taking part in a riot, break and enter and mischief. Judge was accused of throwing a newspaper box through the window of a clothing store and was later spotted vandalizing a Mini Cooper parked on West Georgia Street and trying to light a sofa on fire. Judge will appear Oct. 3 in Vancouver for a pre-sentence report. In April, two young offenders from Coquitlam was charged in connection with the riot; they can’t be named due to provisions in the Youth Criminal Justice Act. Another Coquitlam resident, Ryan Dickinson, was the first of the rioters charged to plead guilty. He was sentenced to 17 months in jail. As of June, the Integrated Riot Investigation Team had recommended 674 criminal charges against 225 suspected rioters. spayne@tricitynews.com

Homeless group turns attention to housing Evergreen is an issue for rental supply in area

Housing decisions at Coq. council

By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A group tasked with helping homeless people find shelter will now shift its attention to the issue of affordable housing as the Evergreen Line threatens to lay waste to apartments across the region. Tri-Cities Homelessness Task Group chair Sandy Burpee said the homeless issue hasn’t gone away but the potential loss of affordable housing due to redevelopment could create more homeless people and make living in the Tri-Cities out of reach for low- and moderateincome families. “The development of the Evergreen Line puts pressure on older low-rise rental housing in Coquitlam and Port Moody. That provides us with something to focus on,� Burpee told The Tri-City News this week. He noted that a temporary shelter at a Port Coquitlam church and the scheduled opening of a permanent shelter and transition housing at 3030 Gordon Ave. in Coquitlam in 2014 will tackle the immediate issue of homelessness. Now, with the cities solidly behind solutions to homelessness and the public more aware of the issue, it’s time to shed light on the equally important issue of affordable housing and seek some solutions, Burpee said. The Homelessness Task Group — which includes among its members city planners, politicians, non-profit agencies and government representatives — hopes to engage developers and government in discussions about ways to enhance the region’s stock of affordable housing to prevent future homelessness, Burpee said. Already, one neighbourhood is seeing pressure from development. Burquitlam is undergoing a transformation and low-rise properties are at risk of redevelopment, he said, noting that he would like to see developers join the task group to get their perspective. He also sees the newly renamed TriCities Homelessness a n d H o u s i n g Ta s k Group lobbying government for policies and incentives to encourage the development of rental housing. Among

IN QUOTES

“The development of the Evergreen Line puts pressure on older low-rise rental housing in Coquitlam and Port Moody.� Sandy Burpee of the Tri-Cities Homelessness and Housing Task Group the ideas being tossed about are tax incentives for building affordable housing and policies to protect renters from displacement. In July, 12 threestorey apartment buildings known as Whitgift Gardens at 550 Cottonwood Ave. in Coquitlam were purchased by Concert Properties. A letter to residents said there are no plans to make changes and Concert Properties already owns and manages other rental apartments in Toronto and Vancouver. But the company also builds new condominiums. A Concert spokesperson was unavailable to comment by press time but the task group makes the case that owning a condominium

One of the first bids under Coquitlam’s new housing choices program was shot down this week after area residents voiced their concern about the potential lack of parking. After a public hearing on Monday, council approved a triplex and quadruplex for 792/794 and 796/798 Clarke Rd. under the new RT3 zoning; but it turned down a split quadruplex for 707 Clarke Rd. when neighbours cited parking constraints. Residents said Harrison Avenue is already jammed with on-street parking and four more homes at the end of the cul de sac, which fronts Clarke, would exacerbate congestion. Their concerns were echoed by Bob Leonard of the Oakdale Neighbourhood Association and Harrison homeowner, and Don Violette of the Burquitlam Community Association. Council narrowly opposed the zoning bid, with councillors Brent Asmundson, Craig Hodge, Neal Nicholson, Mae Reid and Lou Sekora against it. “This site is far too constrained,� Reid said. But Coun. Selina Robinson said the city is looking at creative housing designs for larger pieces of land and, in this case, the site is close to the future Burquitlam Station for the Evergreen Line. The RT1 two-family residential and RT3 triplex and quadruplex zones were formally approved Monday. jwarren@tricitynews.com

is out of reach of many and shouldn’t be the only type of housing available. According to a press release issued by the task group, the cost of housing stretches many household budgets and, as a result, families have less money to spend on childcare, food, clothing and transportation. In 2011, annual household income of over $39,000 was required to rent a two bedroom apartment, according to statistics compiled by the group, but 39% of renters, or 6,335 households in the Tri-Cities, had a household income of less than $30,000 (2006 census). And as many as 1,675

renter households are spending more than half of their monthly income on shelter. A condominium purchase, meanwhile, requires a minimum annual household income of $70,000, out of reach for many, the press release notes. Still, Burpee is optimistic that planning will prevent many of the downsides of transit-oriented re-development, especially in Coquitlam, where development applications are coming in daily. “The city is quite aware that this is going to be a challenging issue and they’re getting on top of it.� dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Guloien’s silver latest medal for PoMo rower continued from front page

The Canadians made a valiant push for gold down the stretch on Lake Dor ney but finished just shy of the defending Olympic-champion Americans, who were last defeated in international competition in 2005 and returned six of the nine crew members from the squad that captured gold at the 2008 Beijing Games. “I was pretty nervous going in... in rowing it’s a game of inches,” said the Port Moody secondary school grad. “It was pretty amazing. It was actually how we pictured it would go, other than winning silver.” Guloien said at the time, she had yet to watch the video replay of the race and was eager to do so just to see how it all unfolded. “A t t h e m o m e n t , everything happens so fast,” said Guloien, who first took up rowing in 2001 while working on her criminology degree at Simon Fraser University. “We tried to catch [the Americans], we just weren’t able to make [the gap] up. “I’m still really happy with the silver and so proud of what we accomplished here.” Guloien is no stranger to accomplishments on the water. Since making the Canadian national team in 2006 (and moving to London, Ont. to be closer to the squad’s training grounds), she has competed in five world championships, winning back-to-back silver medals in the

This week, Coquitlam city council voted 8-1 to rezone the land at 2080 United Blvd. for the new hotel, which was proposed last year to be 11 storeys tall with 181 rooms. According to city documents, Great Canadian Casino now intends to build a 10-storey hotel with 176 rooms adjacent to the current casino and Red Robinson Show Theatre; no expansion is planned for the casino floor. Great Canadian’s Howard Blank said on Wednesday that final design changes are typical for large-scale construction projects. He was unable to say when shovels would be in the ground. “Right now, we’re focused on re-branding the casino. It’s been more than 10 years since we opened it,” he said.

An illustration of a planned hotel at the Boulevard Casino on United Boulevard in coquitlam. At Monday’s meeting, Coun. Craig Hodge said the new venue will create more jobs (approximately 200); add more overnight accommodation; and expand the city’s tax base (last year, it generated $1.4 million in property taxes — the third highest in the city). As well as municipal taxes, under provincial legislation, the company hands over 10% of its net profits to cities where casinos are located. Since the Boulevard Casino opened in 2002, Coquitlam has collected nearly $90 million

through the Ministry of Solicitor General; the city puts 12.5% of that money into a fund for local non-profit groups, with the remainder spent on major capital works. “It’s something that Coquitlam needs,” Mayor Richard Stewart said of the new hotel/ convention centre. But Coun. Neal Nicholson opposed the bid, saying he’s not in favour of supporting anything that contributes to gambling in the community. jwarren@tricitynews.com

ransparency and openness have been promised by an all-party committee responsible for B.C. MLAs’ expenses after auditor general John Doyle was critical of their sloppy bookkeeping. Beginning this fall, the Tri-Cities’ four MLAs and their 81 colleagues will provide more detailed accounts of their expenses every four months instead of annual totals, and in August will open up their meetings to the public. Anyone who is interested will be able to sort through a range of expenses, including receipts for goods and services, and while it doesn’t mean less money will be spent, more scrutiny could curb wasteful practices. Still, it’s shocking that it has taken so long — and required a public shaming — for the MLAs to open their books to the public. There appears to be an allparty sense of entitlement about MLA expenses that can no longer be tolerated, not to mention concern about what might have been missed if Doyle hadn’t raised the alarm.

hat do the loss of Delta farmland, the paving over of ancient aboriginal sites on the Fraser River and Enbridge’s planned Northern Gateway oil pipeline to Kitimat have in common? All three are sacrifices B.C. is being asked to make so the rest of Canada can use B.C. ports to exploit rising trade with Asia. Agricultural land is being carved off in blocks big and small to convert into port-related development or highway improvements. The South Fraser Perimeter Road (SFPR) last year rolled over some of the province’s oldest First Nations archaeological sites near the Alex Fraser Bridge. That may have gone relatively unnoticed but most motorists know their commutes are increasingly slowed by trucks clogging the roads and longer trains holding up traffic — more symptoms of the pressure to make Metro

Vancouver Canada’s west coast super port. Now, after a rising tide of public opposition to the Northern Gateway pipeline, Premier Christy Clark has vowed to block it without world-leading environmental protection and a big share of benefits for B.C. She has her eye on the $81-billion tax bonanza governments stand to reap from the pipeline. Should Ottawa attempt to force it through, the province threatens to bog Enbridge down in permit approvals and even deny the project electricity from BC Hydro. Standing up to Alberta and Ottawa might make good politics in the dying year of a possibly doomed government. But such posturing likely rings hollow for local environmental groups such as the Burns Bog Conservation Society that have spent years fighting the SFPR over the threat it poses to the bog and wildlife habitat along the Fraser. The perimeter road is all about quickly shunting trucks between Deltaport and Highway 1, which is also expanding to 10 lanes through much of Metro Vancouver. For years, B.C. has been an ardent partner

More on this topic: next page of Ottawa in its Asia-Pacific Gateway strategy, expediting the port and road expansion. Victoria never lifted a finger to stop the resulting industrialization of farmland, and in fact pulled land out of the Agricultural Land Reserve to enable the port expansion envisioned in the Tsawwassen Treaty. Where, Metro Vancouver mayors might also ask, was Clark’s boldness to shake down Ottawa when they wanted to slap a tax on each container that moves through the port? Since container trucks beat up our roads and bridges, they suggested, why not charge a container toll that would go to TransLink and act as one new funding source that doesn’t come from the pockets of the region’s embattled taxpayers and motorists. But the container tax was shot down almost instantly by the BC Liberals. In fairness, this region has been on the receiving end of plenty of cash from Ottawa.

The feds have pumped in hundreds of millions of dollars — not just for obvious portrelated projects like the SFPR and Roberts Bank rail corridor overpasses but also big contributions to the construction of the Pitt River Bridge, the Canada Line and now the Evergreen Line to Coquitlam. Port expansion also promises thousands of additional jobs in the Lower Mainland, which can’t pin its economic future on retail service wages alone. That doesn’t take away from the fact there are downsides to being Canada’s West Coast industrial park. Whether it’s the new Enbridge pipeline, the expanded Kinder Morgan pipeline proposal or simply more expansion of port terminals, all of this boils down to the same thing: an expectation that B.C. suck it up and accept inconvenience, risk and environmental or other losses to benefit the rest of Canada. If we are being asked, over and over, to take one for Team Canada, maybe it is time to consider seeking a new deal. jnagel@blackpress.ca

FACE TO FACE: Is Premier Christy Clark’s pipeline stance the right strategy?

Desperate and unreasonable L

ast month, Premier Christy Clark outlined the BC Liberal government’s five “minimum requirements” for the Enbridge pipeline project. The conditions included: completion of the environmental review process, First Nations accommodation, improved marine and land spill response and benefit-sharing. If you read the newspapers in British Columbia or listen to the radio talk shows, Clark’s stance is politically motivated but is reasonable. If you read the papers or listen to the politicians from the rest of Canada, however, Clark is a desperate unpopular politician whose stance is un-Canadian and unconstitutional. On this issue, I’m going to agree with the rest of Canada. First, let’s be very clear: Nobody has ever denied the significance of a thorough environmental review process and First Nations accommodation. So what this is really about — aside from crass politics — is money. Essentially, Clark wants a greater share of Alberta’s gas royalties for that province to transport its bitumen through B.C. But that’s not how Canada works. The Sun News Network’s Ezra Levant put it best: “Could you imag-

ine if a local politician, back in the 1880s, didn’t want the Canadian Pacific Railway to go through, or in the 1950s didn’t want the TransCanada Highway to go through — unless the trains or trucks stopped and paid a big toll? What would Canada would be like if every province started to play that game?” Even other premiers have linedup to bash our premier. Newfoundland’s Kathy Dunderdale says: “I don’t agree that provinces should be able to use their geographical location to hold off economic development for their sister provinces.” Saskatchewan’s Brad Wall wants to know if Clark wants to tax wheat or uranium or potash, too: “This is the thin edge of a very big wedge. You can’t just say ‘Look, we only want to do this in the case of bitumen.’ What about the rail transport of other minerals? Or perhaps... potentially dangerous chemicals that are manufactured in other parts of Canada and shipped across?” While B.C.’s media has bought into Christy Clark’s game, one can only hope they will come to their senses and see what the rest of Canada sees: a desperate premier who has concocted an unreasonable policy in a pathetic attempt to save her job.

A line is drawn in the oil sands E

veryone is lathered that Premier Christy Clark’s position on the Enbridge pipeline is unconstitutional. The media is piling on daily. So this week, I find myself on the wrong side of the Face to Face formula and in the unfamiliar position of defending Premier Clark. I think Premier Clark’s feistiness on the Enbridge Pipeline is a winning strategy — for both her and for B.C. Picking a fight with Alberta Premier Alison Redford is resonating with British Columbians, who agree that B.C. should get more of the billions Alberta stands to make on the pipeline deal. In this fight, Ms. Clark is coming off as a fiscal crusader, fighting for B.C. against dual Albertans — the premier of Alberta and the prime minister of Canada. Her pipeline crusade is an unexpected gift to beleaguered BC Liberals and it’s giving Ms. Clark’s sagging personal popularity a much-needed boost. It’s a winning strategy she will no doubt continue. But besides raising her own personal popularity, Premier Clark’s gritty strategy is also a winner for the public, especially since “yes, for a price” has been fleshed out to

include stern demands for significant First Nations consultation and evidence of “world-leading” environmental standards. The longer Ms. Clark plays hardball, the more shrill her demands on Alberta and Canada, the less likely it is that this pipeline will go ahead — and that’s good for all British Columbians. First Nations opposition to the pipeline is unanimous. The consultation Ms. Clark is demanding would take decades; it won’t happen. And then there’s Enbridge. With comical incompetence, The Keystone Kops of the oil biz recently added another spill to the 804 they themselves reported between 1999 and 2010. Premier Clark won’t squeeze more money out of Alberta or Canada. The First Nations will never agree to the pipeline. And public confidence in an Enbridge pipeline is irretrievable, especially since its existing pipelines could more accurately be called soaker hoses. The Enbridge Pipeline is mortally wounded and Ms. Clark knows that any line she draws in the tar sands is unlikely to be crossed. Bully for her. It’s a winning strategy for all.

Naming voters just won’t work The Editor, Re. “Should lists of voters be published after an election?” (Face to Face, The Tri-City News, July 27). Surely, there are more pressing needs before Coquitlam city council than taking time to consider the motion being put forth by Coun. Terry O’Neill concerning an article he read in The Atlantic. The article “suggests” that publicizing voter names correlates with an increase in voter numbers. First, there is a huge stretch between “suggests” and analytical fact. One might suggest Coun.

SARAH PAYNE/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Crews have been hard at work on Riverview Creek, near the Lougheed Highway at the entrance to Riverview Hospital, in an effort to improve the habitat and spawning opportunities for salmon.

Stream upgrades at R’view By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A stream enhancement project on the Riverview Hospital grounds is expected to improve salmon spawning opportunities in Riverview Creek. The work is taking place in and around the creek near the baseball diamond, close to the main entrance off Colony Farm Road, and is being done in two phases, according to the Ministry of Labour, Citizens’ Services and Open Government.

In the first phase, crews created a backwater spawning and rearing pond near Lougheed Highway, and stabilized stream banks. A riparian habitat zone was also established on the north bank of the creek. Crews used earth removed from the Cottonwood Lodge construction site to establish the riparian zone. In the upcoming second phase, a fish-bearing channel and wetland pond will be established, which will draw both surface

flow from Riverview Creek as well as groundwater from smaller sources alongside Holly Drive that are currently diverting into roadside ditches. Planting terraces will be built using excavated material and will be filled with native plants, sometime in the late summer and early fall. Funding for the project comes from Fraser Health and the project was developed in consultation with Riverview stewardship groups and the Kwikwetlem First Nation.

New playground for Blue Mountain Park By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Part of a popular tot lot in Coquitlam will close during its busiest month. The city has budgeted $200,000 to replace the playg round at Blue Mountain Park with new universal equipment as well as site upgrades such as drainage, pathways and surfacing. Kathy Reinheimer, Coquitlam’s parks and facilities manager, said the work had to be done in August — a warm,

dry month — as a rubber surfacing is being installed, thanks to a $30,000 grant from Tire Stewardship BC. “We’ve had to close part of the existing site as of Aug. 7 so that we can get started but we’ve left as much of the playground open as possible: the three horses, wagon, both large and small swing sets and a couple of spring toys will remain available,� Reinheimer said. As well, the spray park and wading pool will stay open and, until Sept. 1, the city is also

offering a free, drop-in park play program at the following times: • 1 to 3 p.m. on Mondays; • 10 a.m. to noon and 5 to 7 p.m on Tuesdays, We d n e s d ay s a n d Thursdays; • and 10 a.m. to noon and 4 to 6 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. T he par tial playg round closure, expected to wrap up late September, comes the same season the city filled in Rochester Pool with sand for another drop-in play program. jwarren@tricitynews.com

New Safeway to spark Austin re-development By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The long-awaited revitalization of an aging Coquitlam neighbourhood is starting to take shape. T h i s we e k , t h re e land-use bids for Austin Heights went before Coquitlam city council — one of them a project that’s expected to significantly change the landscape of the main street. Council approved a development permit for a new Safeway, located in the heart of the corridor between Austin and Ridgeway avenues, that will see the old grocery store torn down and replaced with a 56,402 sq. ft. building fronting Austin and six retail stores fronting Ridgeway. According to documents released at Monday’s city council meeting, there will be rooftop parking; a pedestrian path on the east side, linking Austin with Ridgeway; and streetscape improvements. As well, city council gave first reading to rezone five properties at 953-969 Charland Ave. — south of the PetroCan gas station — for a four-storey, 88-unit apartment building be-

tween Blue Mountain and Lebleu streets. The bid by Ledingham McAllister is scheduled to go to public hearing in September. And McDonald’s also received a development permit to upgrade its fast food eatery at 1131 Austin Ave., south of Ridgeway, “in order to update the design and look of the building in keeping with McDonald’s new corporate look,� wrote city planner Raul Allueva in his report to council. News of the three redevelopments come about a month after Beedie Living officially started to turn ground

the Safeway rebuild is something the community has been “waiting for with bated breath. It’s the one that will have the greatest impact to the neighbourhood. It’s a good statement.� Asked about how BIA members are coping with the upcoming neighbourhood rejuvenation, Davidson said there’s mixed reaction: Some business people are excited while others fear their rents will rise with the new and increased density, she said. “But we are hoping that everyone is going find their fit and adapt.

Tomatoes and peaches and blueberries – yum MARKET FRESH Karen Curtis

not only is it fresh — as in picked that morning — there are some really unique varieties of produce available too. Here are some of them:

Make most of August’s bounty

TOMATOES

A

ugust is the peak of local perfection. Virtually every vegetable is in season, berries are still available, tree fruits are here and corn on the cob is ready. Who needs processed food when there is this much bounty available? Coquitlam Farmers Market offers several choices for fruits and vegetables. There are big and small family farms, organic and non-organic farms and orchards, and even a backyard grower or two. All are committed to bringing you the freshest food available. And

The Coquitlam market has Roma, beefsteak, heirloom, cherry and coloured tomatoes. Have you ever eaten a yellow tomato? How about an heirloom one? Heirloom tomatoes are not uniformly coloured or shaped. They can be striped, yellow, green, pink, white, orange red or deep red. They lack the genetic mutation that gives commercial tomatoes their uniform colour, shape and cardboard taste. The sweetness of a heirloom tomato rivals that of an apple.

CARROTS

Who knew carrots can be white? Never Say Die farms in Pitt

Meadows grow white carrots that taste out of this world. Biting into one takes me right back to my grandfather’s garden. No bagged mini carrots for me. Purple carrots have a higher antioxidant value than commercially grown carrots too.

PEACHES

Snowy Mountain Organics, from the Cawston Valley, has 18 varieties of peaches. Have you ever eaten a white champagne peach? Walter and Lauren experiment with new and heritage varieties to balance the whims of Mother Nature and feed their passion for farming and good food. Their rainbow tent reflects the rainbow of colour you will find in all their produce.

BLUEBERRIES

The Beckman farm in

Mission is renowned for its amazing blueberries. Grown without sprays, the berries are huge. Their farm is ideally located for blueberries as the water table is high enough that they don’t need to irrigate. When blueberries have all the natural water they need, they become big, juicy and sweet. You really can taste the difference. Celebrate the bounty at the market on Sunday, Aug. 19. The Coquitlam Farmers Market will be hosting its annual Blueberry Pancake breakfast. And don’t forget about the Spirit Square Market Friday evenings. Karen Curtis is the Lemonade Lady (www. kicslemonade.ca and kicslemonade.blogspot. ca) at the Coquitlam Farmers Market. Her column runs once a month during market season.

GET FIT

Over the next five months, Tri-City News reporters Sarah Payne and Janis Warren will be reporting on programs and services available at the Port Moody recreation complex as part of a weightloss/get fit campaign. Other Tri-City News staffers participating are publisher Nigel Lark, who’s rehab-ing a bad back, and advertising consultant Monica Ariken. Below are the second instalments in Payne and Warren’s wellness diaries...

With health & fitness, planning is key By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

I

t’s true, what the personal trainer Kari Werner advised at the beginning of this get-back-inshape business: It all comes down to planning. After the first month of logging gym sessions a few times a week, I hit a pretty big — and busy — bump, packing and moving my family to the TriCities. I’m closer to the Port Moody recreation centre than ever but with all those boxes beckoning from our new home, I’m skipping the gym much more than I should. Here’s what I discovered: A great way to beat the post-lunch snooze factor is to sneak out of the office (shh, don’t tell the editor) for an afternoon work-out. The bonus is that in the rush to get back to the office, I have a good excuse to cut said workout short (shh, don’t tell Kari). Another thing I learned is that people have amusing conversations at the gym. Like the time I was in the middle of my least-favourite Bulgarian split squats (yes, they feel as bad as they sound) and was pleasantly distracted, and intrigued, by the two teenagers discussing where to get the best pho in town; apparently, it’s near the Coquitlam bus loop. I’ve also realized there are things I would rather not hear Kari say. Namely, “We can totally add more weight to that,” and, “You’re not going to like me. You’ll thank me later but, right now, you’re not going to like me.” And I hate to admit it but Kari was right about a lot of things. I’m more motivated to get to the gym when I know I’ll be facing the trainer’s wrath in a matter of days, not weeks, and I eat far more healthily when I’ve taken the time to plan meals and make a lunchtime salad the night before a hectic morning. And most impor-

IN QUOTES

“You’re not going to like me. You’ll thank me later but, right now, you’re not going to like me.” Kari Werner tantly, that all of this should be fun — a good reason to join the Hike and Pilates Experience at Buntzen Lake next weekend. On Aug. 11, from 8 to 10 a.m., fitness instructor Lisa Porcellato will be leading a group along a moderate hike along the east shore of Buntzen, to the north beach and back, followed by a Pilates class. Porcellato dreamed up the early morning trek after a participant in one of her classes suggested an outdoor Pilates class. “And I thought, why not bring in a hike too, and not just in Rocky Point?” Porcellato said. Fellow fitness instructor Peggi Knight said it’s going to be a great way to kick off the weekend. “You’ll feel great for the rest of the day, it’ll be so refreshing and you’ll get to meet new people,” she said. It’s also a chance to explore one of the TriCities’ many hiking trails in the company of a guide who knows the area well. Porcellato promises the route offers some rolling hills but nothing too challenging, although those who want to kick it up a notch could even jog the trail. And the Pilates class will be suitable for everyone, whether you’re a complete newbie or a Pilates regular. • Pre-register for the Hike and Pilates Experience by calling 604-469-4556 (quote barcode 44371). Cost is $20; mats will be provided but participants should bring water and a towel. Meet at the end of the parking lot closest to the park. spayne@tricitynews.com

PoMo recreation complex a path to recovery for stroke survivor By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Bruce Landon opens the door to the workout room at the Port Moody recreation complex, makes his way to one of the three modified cardio machines and starts to cycle his right arm. It’s what the 66-yearold Anmore resident has done about five times a week for the past four years or so, ever since he suffered a stroke that nearly took his life in September 2007. Then, Landon — a 25-year Douglas College instructor who has a PhD in experimental social psychology from Rutgers University — was at home blogging when he fell to the floor. His longtime partner, Nancy Maloney, was out and didn’t find him for two hours. “He wasn’t able to speak but he was

Anmore’s Bruce Landon with his trainer Maria Morano, a kinesiologist who works at the Port Moody recreation complex. conscious,” she said. Maloney dialled 911. And, from there, she remembered, a lengthy period of treatment, rehabilitation and waiting began.

Fortunately, over the next few weeks, Landon’s situation improved and, eventually, he was able to leave RCH for in-patient treatment at ERH for 10

weeks. He functioned little but by December — four months after the stroke had occurred — he was released. Still, Landon was told by Fraser Health he

had to wait 11 months for outpatient rehab. In the meantime, he and Maloney went for care in Vancouver that included speech therapy and physiotherapy. By the fall of 2008, the couple had a personal trainer and received special permission from the city of Port Moody to bring the outside therapist to the PoMo rec complex. The next year, the complex’s kinesiologist Maria Morano — who works with clients suffering from Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis, with hip replacements, back problems and recovering from surgeries, for example — started exercise rehabilitation with Landon on a weekly basis, reconnecting with her former psychology prof. see DONATION DONATION,, page 23

Donation helps with cost of care continued from page 22

But the costs mounted quickly and Landon was faced with the difficult decision of not being able to continue. Melissa Evanson, the city’s recreation planner, said Landon’s luck soon changed: a friend of his neighbour’s — a stranger — heard his story and paid for about $1,500 worth of personal training. And last December, Landon was the one millionth visitor to walk through

the facility’s doors, winning him a lifetime membership. “It was wonderful news,” Maloney said. The financial relief has allowed the couple to focus on what’s important: Landon’s well-being and recovery. Besides the modified cardio machines, he also uses weights and the upstairs track to improve his strength, balance and co-ordination, Morano said. “I remember when he first started, he was on the recumbent bike

Healthy eating tips for travellers Travelling can be an exciting way to get away from the hustle of the everyday world but it also can derail a person’s healthy routines. People may become relaxed with their nutrition selections or think that it’s too much effort to exercise, according to TOPS Club (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), a non-profit weight-loss support organization. In a press release, TOPS offers hints to help stay on the wellness track, cut out calories and feel satisfied while vacationing: EAT HEALTHY • Bring your own meal for the flight or car ride. Homemade sandwiches and fresh fruit are a great option. Not only will you be able to control what you eat, but you will also save time and money. • Pick up pre-packaged fruit and vegetables at the grocery store. You can also buy peanut butter in a tube or small container to pair with fruit or granola bars. BE SMART Be smart with snacks. • Have a sweet tooth? Keep dried fruit, which provides disease-fighting antioxidants, handy for snacking instead of candy. It can also be mixed with nuts and sunflower seeds to create trail mix. • Pack peppers, celery, or carrots to snack on during a trip. Resealable containers are perfect for dips, such as ranch dressing, peanut butter, or hummus. • Frozen grapes make great bite-size snacks and are delicious with low-fat cheese.

DON’T OVER DO IT • Do your research. Check out your destination online and look at restaurant menus before the trip. This will give you an opportunity to find places that serve healthy options. • Practise eating small portions. Bring half the meal home or share an entrée with a friend. Consider choosing two appetizers instead of one entrée. THINK DRINKS • Switch from sugary drinks to low-fat milk, water, or tea with one sugar or a non-nutritive sweetener. • Opt for tomato juice or vegetable juice on the plane. • Out for coffee or a smoothie? Order the smallest size available, request coffee with fat-free or low-fat milk, skip the whipped cream, ask that the smoothie be prepared without added sugar, and look at nutrition facts, if possible. WATCH PORTIONS • Use the half-plate rule. Make fruits and vegetables 5% of what you eat at every meal. • Don’t skip your favourite dessert or fried foods. Eat smaller portions of these foods — just make it a treat, not a regular occurrence. • Don’t cut out meals. This may lead to eating too much later in the day. For more information, visit www.tops. org. TOPS chapters meet weekly at numerous Tri-City locations. For information on group near you, call Gail at 604-941-8699. newsroom@tricitynews.com

and I had to put his feet in the pedals and help him push,” she said. “He doesn’t need that anymore.... There’s been a huge change in his life.” Today, Landon has limited visibility in his left eye and is slowly improving the right side of his body, which was partially paralyzed, “but it’s better,” he said, gesturing. He recalls having Maloney helping him use a spoon for cereal in the beginning because he kept missing his mouth; now,

with his rehab, he can do it on his own. In a recent electronic speech to Doug College students (see it at: http:// www.youtube.com/ watch?v=92noF8ErriQ), Landon stated: “Stroke recovery is hard work. New areas of the brain had to be trained to replace damaged areas.” And, with Morano’s help, “His body is functioning much better, too,” Maloney said. “It’s just been phenomenal to witness.” jwarren@tricitynews.com

GINA ROGERS

Letter from London * Gina Rogers, mother of Coquitlam gymnast Brittany Rogers, will be contributing a blog regularly for The Tri-City News during the London 2012 Olympics. The following is her second installment: DAY 5 – History in the making and an elated fivesome made for a memorable day Wednesday in London at the 02 Arena. The Canadian women’s gymnastics made the team finals for the first time ever. We placed eighth in the qualifying round, and the top eight teams then go on to finals. My d a u g h t e r, B r i t t a n y Rogers, competed on vault and bars. There was not a single slip by any of our Canadian girls and they made history be making it to the finals, and set unprecedented heights by placing fifth –– beating out such world gymnastics powers as Japan, Italy and host Great Britain. After the final results the girls were displayed on the big screen, they huddled together and hugged, laughed and cried. After a spotlight interview with CTV, the team went to Canada House to finally celebrate. Our family and friends have been here for almost a week and this is the first time we were all able to see Britt, who is the first female gymnast ever to make apparatus finals at World Championships (2009) and at an Olympic Games. It was so wonderful to be able to hug her and show her how special she is to us all, and we’ve received so many kind messages of support and praise. Thank you all. Go Canada!

Ex-Red hits baseball heaven By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

C

oquitlam native Steve Kandborg experienced several highlights this summer competing in his first season with New York’s Cooperstown Hawkeyes of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League. He got to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame “five or six times,” got to play his home games at the famed Doubleday Field, and achieved a team-leading .328 batting average by season’s end Tuesday. But one day two weeks ago, the 18-year-old shortstop got to do something he never, ever imagined. He got to meet Ozzie Smith. The Wizard of Oz –– as Smith was so aptly referred to during his Major League Baseball playing days with the St. Louis Cardinals –– was in town to help celebrate the Hall’s annual induction ceremony. He simply thought he’d swing by the Hawkeyes’ clubhouse along the way to pay a visit with the Hawkeyes’ up-and-comers, which is where he greeted Kandborg, a former standout with his hometown Reds of the B.C. Premier League. “I was kinda star struck,” Kandborg admitted during a long-distance phone interview with The Tri-City News. “He’s one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. We talked for maybe two or three minutes... we didn’t talk baseball much, just regular stuff. It was pretty neat, all right.” Kandborg also got to meet another big-time, long-time

former big-leaguer Howard Johnson, who played on four for MLB teams, the longest being with the New York Mets, and saw strolling down the streets of Cooperstown other ex-stars such as Pete Rose, Yogi Berra and Barry Larkin, one of this year’s Hall inductees. Toss that in with toiling at Doubleday KANDBORG Field, where many old-time ex-greats such as Babe Ruth once dug his spikes in the dirt, sent shivers up Kandborg’s spine even though his 11-31 squad averaged only about 1,000 fans per game. “It’s sacred ground, for sure,” was how the five-foot-11, 180-pound Kandborg described it. “It’s kind of a weird experience... knowing Babe Ruth actually played their once and stuff. It was an unforgettable experience, so much fun. Not many kids my age get that kind of opportunity, for sure.” Kandborg doubts however he’ll be back in Cooperstown next season. His plans are to further his playing career, likely by joining the Iowa Lakes Community College Lakers in the reputable Northwoods League, and will come to a firm decision after returning home Wednesday. BASELINES: Reds pitcher Jeff Heidema tossed a nohitter to lift his squad to a 3-1 Game 1 win Saturday over the host Victoria Mariners in the best-of-three playoff. The Reds then swept the series via another 3-1 victory to move into the BCPBL Final Four this weekend in Nanaimo.

Ko, Team BC golf champs Kevin Ko of Coquitlam was on the three-member Team BC that won the inter-provincial golf team title at the 2012 Canadian Junior boys championship Wednesday in Bridgewater, N.S.

There, Victoria’s Matthew Broughton birdied the first hole to clinch the victory for Team BC. Team Alberta placed third at 16-over 300, while team Nova Scotia was fourth at 18over 302.

Bandits gun for 5th title

Looking for a Dentist?

Sr. B lacrosse team a series win away from another President’s Cup visit Jordan Flaman whipped in the deciding goal three minutes into overtime as the Tri-City Bandits went on to an 8-5 triumph Wednesday over the Timbermen in Nanaimo. The victory gave the Bandits a sweep in the best-of-three West Coast Senior ‘B’ lacrosse league semifinal series and moved them into the best-of-five versus the winner of the other semi between the Valley Rebels and Lander Pioneers, starting next week. The winner of that series goes onto the President’s Cup national championships, beginning Aug. 27 in

Edmonton. The Bandits are aiming for their fifth straight provincial championship and their eighth in the last nine years. On Wednesday, the Bandits were led by two-goal efforts from A n d r e w M u r p h y, Darren McEwen and Cam Appels. Tri-City singles went to Flaman, Jordan Wong, Lyndsey Flynn and PoCo Junior ‘A’ c a l l - u p R i ch a rd Lachlan. Bandits’ goalie Chad Miller was outstanding in blocking 44 shots. On Monday, four players pumped in two goals apiece as the Bandits tripped the T-men 12-8 Monday in the series’

first game at PoCo Rec Centre. Mur phy, McEwen, Lachlan and Mac Davis all struck net twice for the winners. Justin H aw k s b e e w a s t h e Bandits’ top point producer with seven, on a goal and six assists. Other Tri-City marksmen were Appels, Wong and Garrett Chan, another PoCo Jr. ‘A’ call-up. On Saturday, Jarrett Neigum zipped in four goals and added two assists as the Bandits beat the Langley Warriors 19-5 to sweep that bestof-three quarter-final in two straight games. Murphy added three goals for the winners that game.

Dr. Alex Galo welcomes Dr. Mehrzad Hakimi to his practice.

JR. A’S GET JUMP

Seven first-period goals propelled the Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs to a 12-7 triumph Tuesday at Poirier Sports Complex over the Delta Islanders in the first game of their B.C. Junior ‘A’ lacrosse league playoff final series. Ben McIntosh pumped in five goals to pace the Jr. A’s, who led 7-4 and 8-5 at the intermissions. Robert Church added two tallies for the Jr. A’s, who got singles from Reid Reinholdt, Vincent Ricci, Cole Shafer, Challen Rogers and Nathan Klein.

Derby die-hards pick Poirier By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

One look and Lee Windsor was hooked. The 41-year-old Langley resident is a proud member of the Free Agents women’s roller derby team, which hits the floor tonight (Friday) at 7 p.m. at Poirier Sports Complex versus the Freedom Fighters. “I was always athletic but I was never really involved in a team sport

before,� said Windsor, who caught the roller derby bug five years ago when a friend invited her out to come watch a match. “I was like ‘Hey, that’s really cool.’ Then I went an watched another one and said again, ‘Hey, that’s really cool.’ After that, I just had to try it and loved it instantly.� So do many others, apparently. A Penticton Ironman competitor in 2003, Windsor (who guys by the derby name of

Mya Diction) is one of several female athletes who have gravitated to roller derby in the last half-decade. Windsor, whose husband also toils in roller derby under the moniker Mean Streak, said the Lower Mainland has grown from two to eight leagues merely since the time she joined. “I love the people... the roller derby community is so open and welcoming,� said Windsor, who has already suf-

fered cracked ribs and a dislocated shoulder during her relatively brief action in the rugged sport. “On the track, it’s a lot of hitting and aggression but after it’s all high-fives and hugs and we all go out together.� Windsor and company are working to introduce the general public more to roller derby, which she said features more than 50 teams across B.C. “I’m trying to promote it as a legitimate sport,� she said.

Questions you should ask about travel insurance. The summer sees more people travelling over the border, making the most of the warm weather and school vacation. It’s also the time many discover they’re under-insured when they incur steep unexpected medical expenses in a foreign country. These can, however, be easily avoided by asking a few pertinent questions before you go.

Women’s roller derby action hits Poirier Sports Complex at 7 p.m. tonight (Friday) with a bout featuring the Free Agents versus the Freedom Fighters. Children 12-and-under are admitted free.

NEW PATIENTS WELCOME

Dr. Hakimi

Do I need travel insurance for a quick trip across the border? Accidents are just as likely to happen on a day trip as any other day at home or at work. Driving on unknown routes could potentially increase the odds. As always, it’s best to ensure you’re fully covered. Does BC Medical Services Plan cover everything? Provincial health care is unlikely to cover all of your medical expenses incurred out of province, or overseas. In fact, the Canadian government recommends that travellers purchase travel insurance when leaving the country because of the extremely high cost of medical care outside of Canada. My credit card automatically covers that, right? You may not have adequate coverage through your credit card plan. Check to ensure you have medical coverage, not

TRAVEL INSURANCE WITH

ZLATA STUMP

just travel accident insurance as there is a difference, and that the medical coverage meets your needs. Is my work travel insurance plan adequate for this trip? Many plans offered through employers lack certain options, like trip cancellation or interruption insurance. You can purchase these on their own to complement your company’s travel insurance. Also, some employee plans only cover the employee, so if you are travelling with your family, ask your insurance specialist about a family travel insurance plan, for both medical or trip cancellation/ interruption insurance. Do your research and ask the right questions. Visit a BCAA location and speak with an insurance specialist who will be happy to advise you, or visit bcaa.com/travelinsurance before you go and make the most of your trip.
