Major developments targeted around the new rapid-transit stations in Coquitlam are forcing the city to fast-track its plans to make the municipality “Evergreen Line ready.” At a council meeting last month, councillors adopted the Transit-Oriented Development Strategy (TOD), a visioning document set to guide growth around the city’s four upcoming stops, currently named the Burquitlam, Coquitlam Central, Lincoln and Douglas College stations. City managers said general policies pertaining to land use, density and design had to be put in place quickly as pressure is

mounting from the development community, which is anxious to build residential and commercial units before Evergreen goes up in four years. But, in discussions that took place at the July 30 council-in-committee meeting, city managers also stressed many key decisions about Community Amenity Contributions, the rental housing stock in Burquitlam and parking requirements still needed to be sorted out by city hall. Staff reports on those three topics will likely come forward next month. Jim McIntyre, Coquitlam’s planning and development GM, said council has some time on its side as the big development bids expected this fall will be at the pre-application stage. “We are going as fast as we can,” city manager Peter Steblin said, noting he hopes the strategy will “create momentum” in the Burquitlam and City Centre neighbourhoods.

Earlier this year, Calgary consultant Bruce Irvine — a former Coquitlam planning manager who is heading up the strategy — said the city has been inundated with queries from developers wanting to build within a five- to 10-minute walking distance from the Evergreen stations. In summary, the TOD strategy follows six objectives for building around the stations: • creating compact, complete neighbourhoods; • developing transit-supportive density; • implementing high-quality urban design; • creating “great” places; • promoting transportation choices; • and managing parking. The latter point has been a sore spot for council recently as staff continue to refine the city’s parking management plan, especially as new buildings rise around Evergreen. see CITY C NEEDS, S, page12 g

The business of human anatomy Health care professionals get hands on experience with human body, thanks to a Coquitlam company By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A unique business in Coquitlam — the first of its kind in Canada — is giving chiropractors, nurses, kinesiologists and massage therapists a chance to brush up on their anatomy. Located in a nondescript warehouse, Somatic Explorations (www.somaticexplorations.com) welcomes practising health care professionals to explore human anatomy, not in a textbook but on human bodies. It’s a fact owner Chris Hagey acknowledges will make many people squeamish but he’s also quick to defend the people who make his business possible. “Donors are few and far between because it takes a special kind of person to do this,” Hagey said in the lobby outside his lab. “I can’t do what I do without the generosity of the donors and the generosity of their families.” The classes — from a pro-section of a predissected cadaver or a week-long, full-cadaver dissection — allow those working in health care to get ongoing, hands-on anatomy education, which improves the care of thousands of patients and clients. A registered massage therapist, Hagey said the business developed out of a passion for studying human anatomy. “People should revisit anatomy,” he said. “Even if you think you remember anatomy from way back in the day, or if you learned it from a text book... a 2-D image isn’t a true representation of anatomy. There are always things missing.” While Hagey was a director at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy, students were able to take a week-long anatomy class at the University of Saskatchewan but it was pricey and it meant missing class. “That’s when thought, ‘Gee, maybe I should build my own lab. But can I?’”

THE SEARCH

That was in 2004, and what followed was years of research into what, if any, government regulations would cover such a business. “I did a lot of due diligence but there’s really no recipe for this kind of thing,” Hagey said. By 2007, Hagey was satisfied there were no laws precluding him from opening a lab, making the next big hurdle obtaining cadavers. In B.C. the provincial government handles the donation of organs but not whole bodies, so Hagey had to look south, where there are three non-profit body donor programs that aren’t attached to universities.

Chris Hagey, owner of Somatic Explorations, in his Coquitlam lab, where health care practitioners including chiropractors and massage therapists can take hands-on human anatomy classes. (Before Somatic Explorations opened its doors, the only way to donate your body to science was to contact the University of British Columbia’s faculty of medicine directly.) Hagey was eventually accepted to the U.S. donor programs after a series of ethical and procedural reviews but, still, his work was far from over. “My biggest problem was getting insurance,” he said. His was the only private anatomy lab in all of Canada and insurance agents weren’t keen on a start-up for which they couldn’t find a way to quantify the risk. It was a Coquitlam insurance broker who took the time to develop an extensive information package on Hagey and his business and later found a Vancouver-based company to take Hagey as a client. And still, the work wasn’t done. For four months, Hagey was on a full-time mission searching for lab space and sorting out zoning issues (the lab falls under both funeral home and medical research regulations). “I’d gotten good at the spiel,” he recalled, chuckling a bit at the reactions of many landlords. “I’d let it hit the floor and before

they could say, ‘No,’ I’d launch into an explanation of what I wanted to do.” Door after door was closed, until one day, in the summer of 2008, a landlord didn’t immediately turn him away. “He said, ‘Wow, that’s weird. It’s cool, but it’s weird.’ I missed half of what he said on the tour because all I could think was, ‘I can’t believe this guy didn’t say, ‘No.’”

CLASS IS IN

Taking a Somatic workshop doesn’t mean walking straight into the lab. Hagey has participants spend time in the outer lobby, where he talks about lab protocol, safety measures and, yes, the fact that they’re about to work closely with a dead person. From there, the group moves into the secure lab, where they sit in an area off to the side, but within sight of the raised stainless steel boxes that contain the bodies. At this point, Hagey reminds participants of the tremendous gift the donors and their families have provided, and stresses that the gift has been generously offered so that others may benefit from their furthered education. When the class finally approaches the boxes and the tables are lifted to expose the

bodies — covered but for the part to be examined — some are calm, others nervous, many emotional. “There’s a quiet reverence, and it’s not unheard of to see a few tears, but there’s nothing wrong with tears in a lab,” Hagey said. “There’s nothing wrong with accepting the gift that’s been given.” “When I took the first course I wasn’t scared, I wasn’t icked out,” said Annu Kliem, a Surrey-based registered massage therapist who recently took two workshops at Somatic Explorations. “I think I was just nervous about seeing the human form opened up the way it was.” Kliem went into the class planning to soak up as much information as possible, and says the experience has already improved the way she treats her patients. “The course... helped me understand a greater palpation of organs and musculature, it helped me understand depth-wise, how to go deep, where to stop,” Kliem said. “It totally opens up another layer, it’s opening your eyes to an understanding of the human body.” see WORK STRANGE, STRANGE, page 4

Pushing a cart to help at-risk kids By Robert Mangelsdorf BLACK PRESS

BLACK PRESS PHOTO

Joe Roberts hopes to finish his Calagary-toVancouver training walk for Push for Change Saturday. Funds will go to support at-risk youth.

Joe Roberts is keeping his promise. More than 20 years ago, when Roberts was a homeless drug addict living in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, he made a promise to himself and to God to give back any way he could should he ever get clean. Now a successful Coquitlam business executive, he has been making good on that vow. For the past two months, Roberts has been pushing a custom-built shopping cart from Calgary to Vancouver in an effort to help bring an end to youth homelessness. Called The Push for Change, Roberts’ campaign hopes to raise funds for early intervention projects for at-risk kids attending alternative school programs or living in group and foster homes. He also hopes fund late intervention programs providing food and shelter for kids already on the streets.

“It can be something as simple as a blanket and a meal,” he says. “It’s about building trust, so when they want to make a change, we can get at them and help them.” Roberts shared his story at the Salvation Army’s Caring Place Ministry in downtown Maple Ridge last Friday morning as he pushed his cart through town. Having lived on the streets himself, Roberts can empathize with many of the shelters residents. Growing up in Midland, Ont., Roberts was a good kid, from a good home. “We weren’t rich, but we weren’t poor,” he says. “It was a typical middle class Canadian home, with a dad that went to work and a mom that stayed at home.” Life was good, until Roberts’ father died suddenly from a heart attack at age 35. Roberts was just eight years old. “He was the kind of dad who was always there, he coached the baseball team and the hockey team,” says Roberts. “And at eight, I

felt ripped off, because I lost my hero.” His mother was a housewife with no career or education, and few options to help support the family. Soon she moved herself and her three children in with a new boyfriend, capable of supporting the family. Who happened to be a violent alcoholic. The love and laughter and joy of their home was gone, replaced instead, with abuse and fear. “It was a dangerous place to be,” says Roberts. While his father had always supported and encouraged him, this new man in his life had nothing but contempt for the children he now had to support. “You’re stupid, you’ll never amount to anything, you’re a dummy,” he told Roberts. “That’s when the hairline fractures in my self-worth began to show,” Roberts says. “I felt like I didn’t know where to fit into the world.” see FORGIVENESS FORGIVENESS,, page 4

continued from page 3

But Roberts says he has long since forgiven his stepfather. “My history is the greatest asset I have in reaching and talking and connecting with young people. I know what it’s like to not fit in,” he says. At age nine, Roberts started getting high, first by sniffing glue. He dropped out of high school and left home at age 15, by which time he had moved on to cocaine and heroin. At 16, Roberts was in prison for the first time. Upon his release, he was on a bus for Vancouver, paid for by Ontario authorities more than happy to see him leave their province. “Within two months I was in the thick of Hastings Street,” he says. Roberts spent much of his late teens and early 20s in a drug-induced haze, in a cardboard box under the Georgia Viaduct. His life was dictated by where his next fix was coming from, his habit supported by collecting empty aluminum cans for refund. One day in 1991, Roberts dragged himself down to Pigeon Park in the pouring rain to score drugs. He sold his boots, his most

prized possessions, for a $10 hit. “When my feet touched that cold concrete sidewalk, I knew I was done,” he says. “I was broken.” So Roberts prayed. He asked God to help him get clean, and in return, if he could get to the other side, he promised to give back any way he could. With the help of his mother, Roberts entered a residential detox facility in Ontario in July of that year. After finishing his treatment, Robert went back to school, finishing two college diplomas. “I discovered I had the gift for gab, so I was a natural for sales,” he says. In time, Roberts became CEO of the multimedia development company Mindware Design Communications, where in less than four years, he led the company through an 800 per cent increase in business. However, Roberts says he gradually lost sight of what was important. He stopped going to his addiction meetings, and started believing his own hype. In 2005, after undergoing surgery, Roberts began to abuse his prescription medications, and soon found himself back in full blown addiction.

“It was a shameful thing for me,” he admits. “Everything I accomplished, I thought I had done it all by myself, but I hadn’t. And I hadn’t kept my promise.” Now he works as a management consultant and, inspired by Rick Hansen and Terry Fox, decided to take to the streets and start pushing his cart with the support of his business partner, Dr. Sean Richardson, a sport psychologist. Since July 1, Roberts has been pushing the cart 24 km a day, six days a week. The cart, he says, symbolizes the problem of homelessness, while the fact that it is empty represents the hunger many on the streets are faced with. It is custom built from aluminum, complete with handbrakes, and was designed by a group of school kids from Pinetree Secondary in Coquitlam. Thanks to generous support from Telus, Roberts says the campaign costs have been covered completely. Next year he plans to push the cart coast-to-coast, from St. John’s, N.L., to Vancouver. • For more information about The Push for Change, visit http:// www.thepushforchange.com/

Work strange but also gratifying continued from page 3

Hagey knows many people will find his work strange, and says even his wife worried about the effect on his psychological wellbeing. The donated cadavers are in the lab for two to three years and

he spends upwards of 250 hours preparing each one. At the end, the bodies are cremated in B.C. and shipped back to the U.S. organization, which returns the remains to the family. (The donors are anonymous, though Hagey receives a basic medical history for each one.)

And yes, he’s sad to see them go. “I’m grateful for the gift they’ve given me, and I’m grateful for the gift they’ve given the students,” Hagey said. “But I don’t want to dwell on their life before. I’m just grateful they’re here.” spayne@tricitynews.com

More head south to shop Fox run help sought But cross-border shopping surge called ‘small’ By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

Cross-border shopping by bargain-hunting Canadians got a new lift in recent months with higher duty-free limits for overnight trips introduced in June. But Bellingham/Whatcom Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Ken Opplinger said he believes the increased flow of B.C. residents heading south this summer was relatively modest. He was reacting to new Statistics Canada data showing a 7.5% jump in overnight travel to the U.S. in June. “There’s been an increase since June but not nearly so much as other places,� Opplinger said. “It’s pretty small here.� Bellingham had already been experiencing heavy flows of Lower Mainland shoppers coming south for some time, he said,

thanks to a combination of B.C.’s introduction of the harmonized sales tax in 2010 and the rise to parity of the Canadian dollar. “We’ve certainly had substantial increases for a little over two years since the HST first hit,� Opplinger said. “It’s certainly the highest we’ve seen since the early 1990s.� Canada Border Services Agency staff have also been “much more lax� in checking returning Canadians and enforcing duty payments, he added.

Amazing PoCo Trivia Fact #56

THINKSTOCK.COM

A combination of the HST, the high Canadian dollar and greater dutyfree allowances may be sending more shoppers to the U.S.

Another draw continues to be the sometimes wide differential between prices retailers charge in Canada compared to stores in the U.S. On June 1, duty-free exemptions for Canadians returning home rose from $50 to $200 for a 24-hour stay and from $200 to $800 for stays of at least 48 hours. Mark Startup, president and CEO of Shelfspace, said it’s difficult to say if cross-border shopping has cost B.C. retailers more sales in recent months. Retailers here have continued to report climbing sales, he added. T he over night duty-free changes should not have affected day trippers, Startup said. And he doubts most shoppers would save enough to justify an overnight stay and the time committed to qualify for the bigger limits. “You really have to wonder if the difference in the exemption alone has had an impact.� Shelf Space and other retail organizations continue to lobby the federal government to eliminate or significantly reduce tariffs Canadian retailers pay on many imported goods.

Politicians embrace social media THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Municipal politicians in the TriCities are embracing social media to link with their constituents and get the word out about civic policies and decisions. Elected officials are primarily using Facebook and Twitter — even during city council meetings — as quick, easy ways to reach out to local residents online. Among those who are most prominent with their announcements are Coquitlam Coun. Selina Robinson, Port Moody Coun.

have posted on social media, which further spreads the information,” Dilworth said. Coquitlam Coun. Linda Reimer finds social media time consuming, preferring instead to listen to residents’ concerns on the phone or at community events. But her colleague, Coun. Terry O’Neill, who was elected last November, likes to publish his opinions on his blog after each council meeting. His text is sometimes picked up by media outlets and can lead to radio interviews. Newly elected PoMo Coun. Rick Glumac is well-versed with online posting. Among the feedback he’s generated include concerns about the lack of daycare spaces in the city, which “prompted me to investigate our zoning and I found that [Port Moody] is one of the most restrictive in the region when it comes to commercial daycares,” Glumac said. “I thereby brought forward a motion to adjust our zoning. This to me is a great example of democracy at work.”

Moore, who chairs the Metro Vancouver regional district board, has a professional Facebook page with 2,257 “Likes” and often posts videos of himself online to explain topics. Still, while social media serves its instantaneous purposes, “it does not replace face-to-face and phone calls,” Moore said. Clay said he started writing about city issues on his website and blog nine years ago; in 2007, Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and Google+ were also added to his forum. He regularly breaks news via social media — provincial notifications, emergency response situations, traffic tie-ups, etc. — or posts information about upcoming matters for city council to gain feedback prior to meetings. During Port Moody Coun. Diana Dilworth’s campaign for a federal seat recently, YouTube videos were key for her.

anadian consumers are heading south for an overnight stay and shopping to take advantage of new cross-border allowances and the high dollar. It seems many are willing to spend the time in border line-ups and pay for the extra gas to save about 14% on many items and have access to a wider variety in clothing and other consumables. The downside is that local retailers are taking a hit, and when they do, they cut back on new hires and those much-hated taxes (which pay for health, education and other important programs) take a hit, as well. Canadians are understandably looking for bargains. But there may come a time when the lure of cheaper U.S. products will come back and haunt them. More likely though, as the U.S. economy rebounds as housing sales are reportedly expected to do, the loonie will drop in value and so will the advantage of shopping down south.

hat was once a simple sewer, water and garbage disposal utility has become a bureaucratic, democratically-unaccountable spending machine. It’s time to move the Metro Vancouver Regional District back to basics. Local decision-making is the best decisionmaking — that’s the core of the concern many Lower Mainland taxpayers have with the Metro Vancouver Regional District. They aren’t comfortable with a fourth level of government taxing them without democratic representation. While the recent Langley Township debate over leaving Metro Vancouver is likely just sabre-rattling, there are ways to reform Metro into a fairer, more taxpayer-friendly agency. Metro chairman and Port Coquitlalm

2012 CCNA

Mayor Greg Moore notes that 84% of the regional district’s $614.5 million annual budget goes to building, operating and paying the debt on the region’s water, sewer and garbage collection infrastructure. That is precisely the work Metro should be doing — and only be doing. Unfortunately, Metro bureaucrats and politicians love to insert themselves into things they have no reason to be in. What Moore is admitting is that 16 % — or $96.1 million annually — of Metro’s budget is being spent on non-essential items or things the province or individual municipalities are better equipped to oversee. Worse yet, the decisions made on these expenditures are done by mayors and councillors who are appointed by their own councils but not directly accountable for the votes they cast at the Metro table. A decision that is bad for Maple Ridge, for example, can be imposed without Maple Ridge’s representative agreeing. Maple Ridge taxpayers have no ability to vote out the Metro reps from

Vancouver or Burnaby — they are at the mercy of the mayors of those two communities, whose slates control the seats on the Metro board of directors. This happens a lot, especially on planning issues. Metro’s planners, unaccountable to any directly elected official or public hearing process, act as though they alone have the ability to determine how the region should develop — not the municipalities that have the official community plans, local expertise, held public meetings and are led by directlyelected mayors and councillors. Land use decisions should be made by politicians directly elected in the cities where that growth occurs — not by Metro staffers or politicians from other Metro communities. Most of Metro’s non-core functions could be taken on by other levels of government that are better equipped to do the work. Metro’s social housing functions, air quality mandate, 911 and agriculture work could be absorbed by various provincial govern-

ment agencies. Parks and planning functions could be taken over by local municipalities. Arts and other grants could be scrapped, allowing taxpayers to decide what causes they would like to support with their hard-earned money. If a taxpayer doesn’t like the way a provincial government or local council handles these services, they can vote them out. Today, they simply have to grin and bear it unless they live in Vancouver or Burnaby, where the power of the Metro Board lies. The three remaining Metro services — water, sewer and garbage collection — could be operated as utilities run by boards with a mandate to deliver good, safe services as cheaply as possible. Some services, especially garbage collection, could be privatized or at the very least contracted out. The tax burden for most Lower Mainland property owners would be reduced by refocusing Metro on core services. Jordan Bateman is with the The Canadian Taxpayers Federation.

FACE TO FACE: Memories of the PNE enough to last a lifetime

A great way to track time W

hat’s your favourite thing about the PNE? In preparation for this week’s column, I put that question to several of my friends and colleagues. While most of them mentioned a ride or an attraction, one friend came back with a somewhat obscure answer. “The PNE is a great way to track time,� she said. “From childhood to your teenage years into adulthood, your memories from the PNE are a great way to track the years.� After about an hour of reflection, what she said made profound sense. For many, the PNE is an annual family institution that they remember just like birthdays, Christmases, and Thanksgiving holidays. I remember, as a kid, my brother and I used to wake up early, get our 7-Eleven all-day ride passes and then head to gates on Hastings and Renfrew. To the chagrin of my parents, we’d go on every ride, sometimes multiple times. My favourite was the swing ride right at the entrance to Playland. As a teenager, I was too cool to be

seen at the PNE with my parents so I’d go with my friends. We’d only go on the scariest rides, of course, trying desperately not to show fear. We ate everything in sight: the cotton candy, the popcorn, the barbecue chicken and my favourite — the mini-donuts. Invariably, one of us would get sick and hurl. One year, I went on a first-date to the PNE with a girl named Colleen. I remember desperately trying to win a Teddy Bear for her by knocking down those glass bottles. I never did win anything and never got a second date with her — I’m not sure if there’s any correlation. And last year, as an adult, I had the pleasure of taking my two nephews to the fair for the first time. Seeing the excitement in their eyes was like coming full circle. Seven-year-old Niam loved the swing ride just like his uncle, while Kailen, 5, loved the Super Dogs. I hope to take them again this year and every year before they’re ‘too cool’ to be seen with me. The PNE is local tradition that I hope never goes away. Maybe one day I’ll even get to take my future grandkids.

he PNE: the punctuation of the dog days of an idyllic Vancouver summer; warm memories of youthful pilgrimages. The rides, the midway, the roller coaster, the buildings, the barns, the barkers, the huge map of B.C. with regions delineated by curvy, toothpaste swirls. Pathetically, I do the things I can still do; sit and watch the Super Dogs, wander through the “Mooternity Ward� and perhaps tour the Prize home. But these are not what forms the warm memories of youth. The best things about the PNE are things long lost to me now: loitering, flirting with girls, walking for 10 hours, eating and digesting things with ease. Going on endless rides: the roller coaster, salt and pepper shaker, the Scrambler, Mad Mouse, the Scooters, tilt–a–whirl, ferris wheel, and whatever new fangled vomit inducer the grapevine touted as the scariest ride of the year. A full day of unsupervised freedom; summer’s last hurrah. Playing “Tucky Derby� (“come on Seabiscuit!�) and skee ball. Trying to lob the softball into the tilted peach basket — it looked so easy. Standing tall to bet a quarter

or two on the “Over 7, Under 7� or crown and anchor games. The tantalizing “5 cent diggers� that made it look so easy to swivel and drop jaws onto a pack of nickels wrapped in cellophane. The foods building. hot fischer scones with butter and raspberry jam, (the best thing ever), and “Uke on a bun� and “Hunky Bill’s� and honey ice cream, and Chinese Food and fresh lemonade for twenty-five cents. The vegomatic guy, selling slicers; “it slices, it dices, it juliennes. Make mountains of coleslaw; just this easy.� The smell of Jimmy’s Lunch with its mountain of cooked onions. A butter soaked cob of corn, mushy from hours immersed in hot water. Candy floss. The PNE passes we all got with our June report cards and dutifully saved all summer. Negotiating with parents for $15 instead of last year’s $10. For kids, the PNE is the harbinger of summer’s end; a time of childhood magic, intensified by the mix of dread and excitement of a new school year. For far too few years the PNE was Neverland to me — second left onto Hastings and straight on to the Kootenay Loop.

R’view death sparks a coroner’s inquest A coroner’s inquest will be held into the death of Patricia Donna Reed, a Riverview Hospital patient whose body was found on the grounds five days after she went missing. Reed, 59, had been involuntarily committed to the hospital under the Mental Health Act. She was reported missing on Feb. 9, 2011. Searchers combed the 244-acre grounds but did not find her. Five days later she was discovered in a ditch in a wooded area. At the time, Lynn Cook, the operating officer at Riverview, said there would be an investigation into what went wrong and how the hospital could prevent similar incidents in the future. Cook said hospital staff conduct a search in three stages: checking the patient’s room, building and programming areas where he or she spends time; having security personnel search the grounds; and notifying police as well as friends and family. Reed’s sister, Judy Johnston, told CBC there was “clear negligence” on the part of the hospital. The week-long inquest is expected to take place starting Dec. 3. Regional coroner Vince and a jury will hear evidence from witnesses to determine the facts surrounding the death.

ustin Walsh is hoping his third time’s the charm at the London Paralympics, taking place Aug. 29 to Sept. 9. The 29-year-old visually impaired runner from Coquitlam will compete in his third straight Paralympics, having done so in 2004 in Athens, Greece, where he finished fifth in his main event the men’s 400 m, and again in 2008 in Beijing, China. London will offer something new for both Walsh and Canada, as it will mark the first time they have taken part in a relay at the Paralympics, specifically the men’s 4x100 m. “It always feels good [to qualify] but I think this might feel the best,” Walsh told The Tri-City Newss in a recent phone interview. “Canada’s sending a small team this time... we sent about 40 athletes to Athens and this time it’s only 26. It’s a pretty highquality team so it’s nice to have made it.” Despite a rather tricky training regimen trying to link the team — two of its members are from B.C. and two are from Ontario — the Canadian men’s 4x100 Paralympic relay unit is entering the Games considered a top-five squad internationally. Walsh believes the biggest key to his team’s success is timing while passing the baton, with communication and pin-point delivery being enormous factors in a race that takes roughly a mere 45 seconds to complete and one bobble perhaps being the difference between a medal and mediocrity. “We started out really having no idea

LONDON 2012: Canadians head to Paraympics

Blessin sets sights on medal FRUSTRATED

WITH YOUR INVESTMENT RETURNS?

By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

L

ike life hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been challenging enough for Port Coquitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Doug Blessin, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pushed himself to become a Canadian national team sharp shooter who will compete in the 2012 London Paralympics, running Aug. 29 to Sept. 9. A car accident in December 1995 that left the now 39-year-old partially paralyzed only spurred Blessin on to pursue his passion for sport, and he eventually took up wheelchair rugby before the rigors of the game began to take its physical toll. About six years after his wife, Joanne, gave birth to now nine-year-old twin boys, Blessin looked to take up a less rigorous activity while his sons grew to become involved athletically

themselves. Enter shooting â&#x20AC;&#x201D; specifically the 10 m air rifle event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took to it easily,â&#x20AC;? Blessin told The Tri-City News. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I found it challenging but something that was competitive and I could be good at. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it if it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t challenging.â&#x20AC;? Within a year after first pulling a trigger, the ever-competitive Blessin showed enough poise and skill to make Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national team. His biggest test came last May in Kelowna, where he was by far the least experienced of a trio attempting to earn one of two spots for the Paralympics. Blessin surprised many, including himself, by beating out a competitor with 20 years experience in the sport. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a really good day,â&#x20AC;? said Blessin, a Centennial secondary school grad who now works as an

advertising production manager for a yachting magazine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plus, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like making excuses when things donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go right.â&#x20AC;? Blessin said he considers himself â&#x20AC;&#x153;a darkhorseâ&#x20AC;? to medal at the Paralympics, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go up against foes from other countries where shooting is often considered an everyday skillful sport. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here [in Canada], people are afraid of guns,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of places, they grow up with them. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done in a sporting manner.â&#x20AC;? Blessin also admitted nerves could play a factor in an event where the slightest of fractions could make the world of difference, which is why he has linked himself of late with renowned sports psychologist Saul Miller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to shoot straight when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all jacked up.â&#x20AC;?

More tankers plying local waters

W

ithout a doubt, Burrard Inlet offers stunning scenery, terrific opportunities for recreation and a rich diversity of fish and wildlife habitat. It is also an important harbour and shipping port for Metro Vancouver. Although some people think Burrard Inlet is a fiord, it is actually a very shallow basin with sills at its First (i.e., Lions Gate Bridge) and Second Narrows. The inner harbour becomes increasingly narrow and has ever-shifting currents of up to 6 knots due to two daily tides. While not as hazardous an area as the northern B.C. coast for shipping, it is not without its challenges as a port. Oil tanker traffic in Burrard Inlet dates back to before the First World War when crude oil from California was delivered to the Ioco Refinery in Port Moody on much smaller ships than the present day tankers. Tanker traffic increased after 1953 with the construction of the Trans Mountain pipeline to Burnaby. Of course, in 1953, there was much less residential development around this portion of Burrard Inlet and, perhaps, it made sense then to operate three oil refineries (two in Port Moody) on Burrard Inlet to process some of this crude oil. One of the legacies of these three refineries is the highly polluted bottom sediment in Burrard Inlet especially in Port Moody Arm where a 1989 study found 75% of the English sole suffered from pre-cancerous liver lesions. Today, only one refinery, Chevron in Burnaby, remains in operation and serves mostly local needs. Thus, in 2003, only 12 crude oil tankers plied the waters of Burrard Inlet. Many people are unaware tanker traffic has been increased in recent years and reached 71 tankers in 2010. With the proposed new Kinder Morgan pipeline, tanker traffic could jump to approximately 300 per year. An additional worry with such a large increase in tanker traffic is that most of these tankers would be carrying diluted bitumen, a much more toxic and hazardous product than conventional crude oil. A 25 fold increase

ELAINE GOLDS PHOTO

The number of oil tankers passing through Burrard Inlet has exploded in recent years. months to clean up than anticipated and the sinking of some material has forever contaminated the river bottom. In 2009, the Auditor General of Canada reported our Coast Guard was not prepared for a major spill. Since then, the Harper government has severely cut back on Coast Guard services on our coast. Our present regulatory regime seems to be inadequate to even ensure the highest and best management practices. The limited liability of the shipping industry means that taxpayers would be on the hook for the billions of dollars required for cleanups from a major spill. All that I have read about the risks of diluted bitumen con-

vinces me that transporting such hazardous material will lead to nothing but trouble. Diluted bitumen can be partially refined to something like crude oil at upgrader facilities. Apparently, production of tar sand oil is now increasing so rapidly in Alberta that it is outgrowing the capacity of the existing upgraders. Why not build another upgrader in Alberta instead of shipping the problem elsewhere? Between now and 2020, Canada is projected to have the third highest increase in oil production in the world (after Iran and the USA). Our oil, most of it to be exported, will be the most carbon intensive because most of it will originate from the tar sands and require huge energy inputs to heat the oil out of the sand. Apart from concerns about the impacts of spills and accidents, is it morally appropriate for us as nation to be exploiting the tar sands and vastly increasing our greenhouse gas emissions in a warming world? • For people who wish to learn more about tanker traffic, the next meeting of the Burke Mountain

Naturalists on Tuesday, Sept. 11 at 7:30 p.m. will feature guest speaker, Christianne Wilhelmson, from the Georgia Strait Alliance who will describe some of the hazards associated with increased tanker traffic. This meeting, free of charge and open to the public, will be held at Como Lake United Church on the corner of Marmont Street and King Albert Ave in Coquitlam.

How much risk is there?

in tanker traffic over what we had in 2003 will obviously increase the risk of a major spill in Burrard Inlet. Burrard Inlet is so shallow in places that tankers cannot leave fully loaded and must rely on high tide for adequate clearance. But, there is little room or time to maneuver on high slack tide. Additional dredging has been suggested but this could stir up toxic sediments left behind from an earlier industrial era. One of the particular problems with cleaning up a potential spill of diluted bitumen is that it tends to form a tarry mass which slowly sinks rather than floats. The currents from twice-daily tides would quickly transport any toxic material from a major spill throughout the extensive shorelines and significant habitat areas of Burrard Inlet and Salish Sea. This would be utterly destructive to their ecology. There has been only limited experience in dealing with spills of diluted bitumen such as occurred on the Kalamazoo River in Michigan in 2010. There, the clean-up crew discovered this spill took many more

Riverview a time capsule for early Coquitlam YOUR HISTORY Jill Cook What is so special about Riverview?

T

he recent closure of Riverview Hospital is receiving a great deal of public attention and much of that is focused on concerns and apprehension about the future for the site. One has to ask why this closure, which has been known for a long time, is now generating strong, almost visceral, public response from Coquitlam and beyond? Certainly, there are many factors driving the debate: economic, environmental, antidevelopment and conservationist — and sentimental and emotional. It also raises the question of how we define the heritage value of the site and determine what, if anything, should be saved and preserved, recognizing that a measure of a civilized society is how we protect and cherish our heritage. The significance of the Riverview site is undeniable. It is a unique and long-standing landmark in the community. There is the special architecture, the landscaping and trees, the sheer size of the 244-acre site, and the personal stories and connections many citizens have to the former operations and the focus on care, comfort and healing. The decisions to be made about the Riverview location could have a major impact on the physical aspects of the site and may well foreclose options for preservation. The tangible physical connections to the Riverview history could be lost. Is this important? How is it that Riverview has captured our imaginations and kindled a sense of care and ownership for a place that most of us have never visited? By design, it was intended to be a separate, selfsufficient world, the isolation planned to create an environment conducive for treatment and healing. And yet now in the discussion of its future, it has emerged for many as a defining element of our city and our values. A wealth of fascinating information about Riverview has become better known. And with this, the public sense and appreciation of the heritage value of the site has increased. The details capture the imagination and demonstrate the significant impact and scope of the site and the hospital

IN QUOTES

“It is the profound, often personal or emotional attachment that many have to the site that is most intriguing..” Jill Cook operations: In 1956 (its peak year), there were 4,306 patients and 2,200 staff members; some 600 native species of plants successfully germinated on the grounds; the magnificent diversity of the 1,800 significant trees; and the marvel of its self-sufficiency that included staff housing, its own fire hall (completed in 1927); and substantial food production (700 tons of crop and 20,000 gallons of milk were produced at Colony Farm in 1911). As interesting as these facts are in defining the important component Riverview has been in Coquitlam, it is the profound, often personal or emotional attachment that many have to the site that is most intriguing. Simply put, we have come to care about the site and it has become part of our community identity — as a major employer, a visual and geographic marker, and the tangible touchstone for the history of mental health care over the past century. It has been there for longer than all of us and there is almost a collective sense of grief at the looming loss. Dare we say it has been recognized as an integral element of Coquitlam’s heritage? High up on the hill and just down the street, we see a swath of history telling us about ourselves and who we are. These details and stories are integral to our community but they stretch far beyond our borders. Our local landmark tells a provincial and national story about how mental health care evolved. Because the site is separate, contained and remote from much of Coquitlam’s development, it functions as a kind of time capsule that looks substantially the way it did for most of the 20th century. The heritage value of the Riverview site is clear. Its closure provides the rare opportunity for us to examine a defined, substantial piece of our social, medical, architectural, landscaping and community history. We recognize instinctively

that the sum of these elements is greater than the individual parts. The question is whether its protection and preservation are of sufficient priority to guide decisions about its future. Elsewhere in Canada and in many countries around the world, open-air site museums that extend well beyond a single standalone building have been championed. They tell the history in a compelling way by capitalizing on the synergy achieved by bringing together multiple site elements. This could be the model for Riverview. Your History is a column in which, once a month, representatives of the Tri-Cities’ three heritage groups writes about local history. Jill Cook is executive director of the Coquitlam Heritage Society.

Stroll for a Cure Sept. 23 at Lafarge Lake in Coquitlam raises funds for B.C.-based cancer research.

Take a stroll & raise funds Funds support local trials for new therapies Multiple myeloma is a devastating blood cancer most people have never heard of until they are diagnosed with it. While there is no cure, treatment research has entered a revolutionary and exciting phase transforming myeloma into a treatable disease. Even better for local patients, the Vancouver General Hospital’s Haematology Research and Clinical Trials Unit (HRCTU) has the potential to take more of a leading role in exploring these emerging new therapies. Raising much-needed funds for this frontline research unit is the objective of Myeloma Vancouver’s second annual Stroll for a Cure, set for Sept. 23 at Town Centre Park in Coquitlam. The familyfriendly event involves a 5-kilometre (shorter or longer) hike around Laf arg e Lake. Last

year’s event raised over $23,000 and this year’s goal is set for $50,000. Organizers Francesca and Richard Plaster, founders of the Vancouver Myeloma Support Group, understand the significance of a robust clinical trial program in B.C., and the importance of community support. ‘We need patients, friends and families to get behind this exciting blood cancer research,’ says Francesca. The unit’s clinical trial program is open to all B.C. residents with a blood cancer who meet the medical criteria. The event takes place at Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park, 1205 Pinetree Way in Coquitlam. Registration starts at 9 a.m., with the stroll itself underway at 10 a.m. Participants are invited to bring their families and spend a pleasant day relaxing in the green space surrounding Lafarge Lake. To donate or learn more about Stroll For A Cure, visit www. MyelomaVancouver.ca

ART TIME Several Grade 1 to 5 students took part in ArtReach last week at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts. The annual outreach arts program, sponsored by the Westminster Savings Foundation, is designed for youth from low-income families to learn about drama, music, dance and visual arts as well as gain self-esteem and confidence; the camp wrapped up last Friday with a performance for family and friends.

The last mural on the stairwell (pictured) is a thank you to School District 43 students who raised Chum eggs to the fry stage in aquariums in their schools as part of a Fisheries and Oceans Canada Salmonids in the Classroom program. And at right, Coquitlam’s Nichola Smith (centre), the widow of esophageal cancer victim Gary Smith, recently presented Kenneth Atkinson, head of gastroenterology at Royal Columbian Hospital, and Kandi Kozler of RCH Foundation, with a cheque for $11, 924, which was raised from the third annual Gary’s Walk event. The funds will be used to buy a gastroscope.

KIDS WIN

A bi-annual sale in Coquitlam last Saturday to raise money to help kids from low-income families stay fit is being called a “huge success.” Organizer Chris Wilson said the Tri-City KidSport used equipment sale at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex drew more than 1,300 buyers — nearly 500 of them coming through the doors in the first 10 minutes — and collected some $17,000 for the group.

and provides social services got a chunk of change from the Port Mann/Highway 1 contractor this month. Kiewit/Flatiron General Partnership swung in $60,000 to Share Family and Community Services’ coffers following the company’s annual golf tournament in June. Last year, the company donated $50,000 to the local charity — money also raised from the golf event. “Kiewit/Flatiron is truly impressed by Share’s tremendous accomplishments within the community,” said Ryan Tones, senior project manager at Kiewit/Flatiron, in a release.

BUSINESS PROFILE: Ballistic Arts Media Studios Inc.

Biz built in parents’ basement By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Just before he graduated from Coquitlam’s Centennial secondary in the late 1990s, Ted Lau placed a note in the school time capsule describing his dream career. “Graphic designer or movie director,” it read. But when it came to apply to Simon Fraser University, Lau registered business as his major — a choice he soon came to regret. As a co-op student, he took a customer service job with the Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). He remembers the work being so tedious that he went in to complain to SFU officials. And that’s when luck struck. While on campus, he noticed a sign from the communications faculty advertising a digital video course for the next semester, starting in September. As it turned out, the class was full. Still, Lau managed to get an appointment with the instructor but, before the meeting, he devoured the course text book while commuting by bus to CRTC in Vancouver every day. By his appointment date, his knowledge of the digital video program was so thorough that the teacher waved him in. Three years later, armed with a bachelor of arts degree in communications, Lau found himself without a job and in a failing global economy from the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001. However, Lau had a new partner he met at the Vancouver Film Festival who was willing to launch a marketing business with him, called Ballistic Arts Media Studios Inc. And so Lau and Tak Kawana built a website and waited for clients to come. “That didn’t happen,” Lau remembered. “We had no idea at the time what we were doing.” To pay the bills, Lau took a job as a cameraman for Citytv. Then, one day, he got out the phone book and started cold calling to promote their company. “Guess what? No one wanted video but they all said

they needed a graphic designer because theirs was unreliable.... We were hungry and needed money.” Lau and Kawana restructured Ballistic to create a one-stop shop marketing company, providing video, photos, graphics and web design to a core Metro Vancouver base. They found their niche in smaller businesses that couldn’t afford downtown prices. And, because they offered the full range of digital marketing services, Ballistic also attracted larger fir ms looking for a complete online package. Slowly, the pair built Ballistic, starting from Lau’s parents’ basement. Two years later, they had their first employee — Marisa Woo, Lau’s girlfriend and a fellow SFU communications major — to do the invoicing and computer programming; by 2005, Ballistic boasted six employees. “I was making more than any of my friends from Centennial,” Lau said. Each year, Ballistic

grew at least 25% more from the previous year and, in 2009, after a push from the entrepreneurs’ organization program Accelerator, the company had double the work and 10 employees. Today, the agency grosses under $1 million and has about 120 clients annually — three-quarters of them returns — who prescribe to custom bundles, aptly named Regular Strength, LocoMotion Non-Drowsy Formula and Add on: Rx, for example. Past and cur rent clients include Port Coquitlam’s Treehouse Pub, Phoenix Truck and Crane in Coquitlam, PoCo Building Supplies, Pasta Polo, Wesbild, Westwood Plateau Golf a n d C o u n t r y C l u b, BCAA, Vancity, Tourism New Westminster and the Canadian Mental Health Association BC. As well, it has done gratis work for Share Family and Community Services’ Just Desserts gala fundraiser. Two years a go, Ballistic moved its headquarters to Burnaby after failing to find ad-

equate office space in Coquitlam. And, on June 28, Ballistic marked its 10th anniversary. “A great decade,” said Lau, noting Ballistic hopes to expand to Alberta next year. A former board director for the Tri-Cities’ Chamber of Commerce, Lau said the concept for his “asylum” is simple: Provide remedies to “patients” with marketing ailments and, most importantly, offer topnotch customer service. The creative principal and CEO takes every opportunity he can to meet with clients face to face to analyze their business’ aches and pains. “I’m the sales guy, the visionary,” he said. “I like to know how their company ticks from the inside out. “Like, we had a pub that featured a lot of football games. I started to watch football and, you know what? I’m a football fan now and that translates online for them. “That’s how you stay on top of the game.” jwarren@tricitynews.com

Hardy winter vegetables can be seeded now IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter

A

ugust is a very important transitional time in our vegetable gardens. Some vegetables are still maturing, but many others have finished completely, leaving gaps here and there that could still produce a few crops. In coastal areas, an excellent selection of vegetables can be planted now for harvesting from September through next March and beyond. In southwestern B.C., our vegetable gardens can be producing 12 months a year, and even in some colder parts of the province, selective planting can be done. Potted perennial vegetables, like horseradish, Jerusalem artichokes and rhubarb, can be planted now. Perennial herbs like mint, parsley, chives, marjoram and oregano can also be planted for some late fall and early spring additions to your culinary dishes. September is also the best time to plant garlic for next year. For some delicious spinach-like greens, Swiss chard can be planted now. Once established, it will tolerate a fair bit of cold before it either freezes or goes dormant. The same is true of spinach. ‘Perpetual Spinach’, which is actually a chard, and West Coast Seeds’ ‘Bloomsdale Savoy’ are two varieties that can be used in 45 days. There is even time for some root crops like beets. In the worst case scenario, all you

will get are the greens, but even they are delicious. The novelty varieties, like ‘Little Egypt’ for example, mature in 34 days — now that is quick! Lettuce is, by far, the most popular of greens, and seeded now, almost any variety of leaf lettuce will do just fine. The ‘Butter Crunch’ type matures in about 60 days, while the loose leaf varieties, like ‘Black Seeded Simpson’ and ‘Red Sails’, will be on your table in 45 days. For winter greens, ‘Corn Salad’ is still one of the best as is ‘Winter Density.’ Both have better flavour with a light frost.

Winter cauliflower, like ‘Galleon’ or ‘Purple Cape’, and cabbage, like ‘January King’, will mature in February if planted now. ‘Purple Sprouting’ broccoli is another winter favourite, too.

Dobbie hot as A’s knot WLA final By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Dane Dobbie of the Coquitlam Adanacs was as hot after the game Tuesday as he was during it. The A’s leading scorer whipped in three third-period goals – all bullets high to the stick side of Langley Thunder goalie Brodie MacDonald – as Coquitlam prevailed 9-8 at Poirier Sports Complex. The victory evened the bestof-seven Western Lacrosse Association final series at a game apiece, with Game 3 set for Thursday in Langley. Game 4 goes Saturday at 7:45 p.m. back at Poirier. Dobbie didn’t come out of the A’s dressing room after for an interview request, with an

Adanac team official informing media members, “He’s not in the mood to talk right now.” On the phone with The Tri-City News on Wednesday morning, Dobbie insisted it was no big deal. “It was just after the game... I needed to settle down a bit and take a couple breaths,” he said. “It’s the WLA final, there’s a lot of pressure. You don’t get this opportunity very often.” A melee involving both teams’ occurred on the floor at game’s end but the referees were quick to usher both squads to their respective dressing quarters. “I don’t really know what happened there,” said A’s g eneral mana g er Randy Delmonico, who also serves an

IN QUOTES

“It’s the WLA final... you don’t get this opportunity very often.” A’s star Dane Dobbie assistant coach. “That game was over. We just wanted to get our guys off the floor so nobody got into trouble.” After a goal-filled first period that ended with Coquitlam leading 5-4, markers were hard to come by in the second. Ex-Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs’ players Tor Reinholdt and Athan Iannucci tallied 53 seconds apart to put Langley up 6-5 going into

the third, where the A’s and Dobbie out-scored the visitors 4-2 to squeeze out the win. “I was aiming there,” Dobbie said of his three topshelf rockets on MacDonald, another former Jr. Adanac. “I hit in the backside earlier in the game so I thought I’d go higher. Luckily, they went in for me.” Dobbie’s third goal of the period and the game with 7:13 remaining stood as the winner. U n l i k l e y s c o r e r Ro s s Halliday played unsung hero for the A’s, netting two key goals, as did Jason Jones. Coquitlam singles went to Kevin Olson and Travis Cornwall. see A’S A S ‘COULD COULD WIN’, WIN , page 34

Treasures of Christmas Gala

When it mattered most, the Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs came through most. Down 4-2 after the first period, the Jr. A’s rallied to out-score the host Warriors 9-4 in the second and then pumped in the game’s final three goals in the third on way to a 15-11 triumph Wednesday over the defending national champions in Whitby, Ont. The victory advanced the Jr. A’s into the bestof-three Minto Cup Jr. A final series starting today (Friday) versus the Ontario champs, the Orangeville Northmen. G a m e 2 i s s e t fo r Saturday while Game 3, if needed, will go Sunday. “We played quite well in the first period... there were a couple strange bounces and we were down a couple goals,” Jr. A’s head coach Neil Dinsdale told The Tri-City News on the phone Thursday from Whitby. “All we talked about [during the intermission] was to come out and play with more passion, and they [A’s players] did. We played well the whole game, I thought.” It was a total turnaround from Tuesday, when the Jr. A’s sat out five regulars and fell 17-8 to the same Whitby crew in a mean-little contest to conclude round-robin play. The Northmen had already advanced to the final with a 3-0 record, while the 0-3 Calgary Mountaineers were bounced from playoff contention. Dinsdale said his players have to be at the top of their game to

knock off the heralded Northmen. “They’re a good team, a lot like Whitby,” he said. “They have a high lacrosse IQ and good goaltending. There’s really not one or two things you do to beat certain teams, i t ’s t h e l i t t l e things that are important. One of those BERG is ball possession. The longer you have the ball, the longer you make their defence work and [try to] tire them out.” Dinsdale added getting the jump in the first game of the series today would be nice, but he noted last year’s Jr. Adanacs won the opener before dropping the next two games to Whitby and lost the Minto final in Okotoks, Alta. Coquitlam won the Minto Cup as tournament hosts in 2010. “It’s important [to win the first game] although the winner still has a long way to go,” Dinsdale noted. O n W e d n e s d a y, Wesley Berg rallied the Jr. A’s with four goals and two assists, while Reid Reinholdt was the team’s top point producer with two tallies and five helpers. Vincent Ricci netted three goals, with Matthew Dinsdale and Robert Church also supplying a pair apiece. Jeff Cornwall and Ben McIntosh rounded out the Coquitlam scoring cast. Jr. A’s goalie Davide DiRuscio, who was a healthy scratch Tuesday when back-up Riley Camazzola took over, was steady in stopping 43 shots.

Keel takes on Tour field By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Coquitlam 17-year-old Jisoo Keel is confident about her golf game, so much so she believes she isn’t too far away from making an impact soon on the LPGA Tour. When interviewed with four other national team amateurs Wednesday prior to Thursday’s start of the 2012 CN Canadian Women’s Open at her hometown Vancouver

Golf Club, Keel felt she and her Team Canada teammates will all be giving other Tour players a run for their money in time. “I think our game is really close to being on par with the Tour girls,” said Keel, who teed off at 8:06 this morning (Friday) in a threesome with Minea Blomqvist and Maria Hernandez. “The biggest difference I think is their experience and the media, and how they handle the

pressure. Hopefully, I’ll get better at that.” Meanwhile, LPGA Tour phenom Michelle Wie, who won the Cn C a n a d i a n Wo m e n’s Open in 2010, said she’s thrilled to be gunning for the crown again. “I love playing golf up in Canada,” Wie said. “I absolutely love it up here. I think the crowds... the people are just so nice.” After the cut, the final two Open rounds run Saturday and Sunday.

LPGA player Sandra Gal putts on the 18th green during Wednesday’s CN Canadian Women’s Open golf pro-am event.

Lee leads Juv. golf Henry Lee of Coquitlam continued to set the pace at the B.C. Juvenile boys golf championship Wednesday in Princeton, where he followed up his first round four-under-par 68 with a second-round 71. The two-round-total of five-under-par 139 put Lee, 14, four strokes ahead of his nearest competitors heading

into final-round action Thursday [after The TriCity News’ deadline]. Three players sat in that tie for second at a one-under-par 143. Coquitlam’s Jooho Lee was alone if sixth spot with a one-over-par 145 total, while Kevin Vigna of Coquitlam was tied for seventh in the 59-shooter field with a two-over 146 score.

A’s ‘could win easier’ pleased to see the powerplay connect on five of seven chances. “We’ re making it real hard on ourselves to win. We could win easier,” Delmonico said. “They [Thunder] are spending a lot of time with the ball and our defence is getting tired being out there so long.”

The Thunder’s Iannucci led all pointgetters in the game with four goals and two assists. Delmonico said the A’s have to do a better job offensively of controlling the play when at even strength but was
