Alexander caddies LPGA history THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Brian Alexander, a 63-year-old real estate developer, shot a 67 in his best round ever at the Vancouver Golf Club in Coquitlam. Lydia Ko, a 15-year-old Grade 11 student from
New Zealand, fired the same score on the same course on Sunday. The difference between the two — apart from their 48-year age gap — was that with her 67, Ko captured the 2012 CN Canadian Women’s Open golf championship. As for Alexander, he
carried her bag and pointed her in the right direction, when needed. The bubbly, bespectacled Ko would have collected the top prize of $300,000 U.S. had she not been an amateur and Alexander would have pocketed $30,000 of that as the winning caddy
typically receives 10%. Instead, Alexander, a Burnaby resident and VGC member for 10 years, went home without cash but rich with elation and pride for having been a part of women’s golf history. see ‘UTTERLY’, U , page g A13 3
“It’s something I’ll cherish forever.” Brian Alexander, on caddying for Lydia Ko, who won the Canadian Open at Coquitlam’s Vancouver Golf Club

Coq. home part of big drug raid Cash & weapons seized as part of massive inquiry BLACK PRESS
Police searched a Coquitlam home last Saturday as part of a series of raids across B.C. that uncovered an
alleged international drug ring involving the Hells Angels. On Tuesday, federal RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Duncan Pound declined to give details of the search on the Coquitlam home, identify who owned it or comment on whether evidence had been found.
But Pound confirmed the home was not the Hell’s Angels clubhouse in Maillardville. The 20-month police investigation focused on marijuana growops in the Okanagan that were being used to help import cocaine into Canada. At a press conference on Monday,
RCMP said the Kelowna Hell’s Angels clubhouse was one of the five locations searched over the weekend with raids also conducted in Kamloops, Osoyoos, Vernon and Coquitlam. On Monday in Vancouver, the RCMP displayed stacks of $50 and $100 bills as they
gave reporters a briefing on five raids conducted throughout the province to take down an international drug smuggling operation. RCMP are not confirming which of the locations the cash was seized from. see MEXICO MEXICO,, page A8
“This investigation demonstrated how organized criminal groups engaged in drug trafficking have no respect for municipal, provincial or international borders.” RCMP Supt. Brian Cantera

In the garden, down on the farm Dawes among those gardening at Colony Farm By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
ews flash: Vegetables don’t always come cello-wrapped and beans, when picked fresh from the vine, actually taste good. And as any gardener will tell you, growing your own vegetables takes more time and work than a trip to the grocery store. But for New Westminster residents Peter and Mary Joe Dawe, that work is a labour not just of love but for the tastebuds. “They just taste better,” Mary Joe said as she plunged her hand deep in the foliage of a tall pole bean plant to pick out a sample as long and slim as a pencil. She dropped it into a sack of its bean brothers and sisters — the bag must have weighed a couple of pounds — and handed another to a reporter. The fresh bean was as crisp as an apple and tasted just as sweet, and there were hundreds more treasures just liked it tucked away in Mary Jo’s bean plants. Wearing a broadbrimmed hat and dark glasses, she deftly snapped the beans from the vine while she talked about what she would do with the produce once she got it home. After snapping, washing, bagging and freezing them, she said, she would have enough to keep her and her husband, Peter, in beans until next spring. The Dawes, formerly Port Moody residents, have been tending their rented plot at Colony Farm Regional Park Community Gardens in Coquitlam for about seven years and each

year grow hundreds of pounds of produce for themselves and the food bank. Besides beans, they grow butternut squash, cabbage, potatoes, peas, garlic, onions and herbs. “Just the things we like,” said Mary Jo, who
grew up on a farm in Iowa and knows a thing or two about growing, keeping and cooking vegetables. But no tomatoes. “They are too much work,” she said. Blight is a problem in the soil and while they could set
up a small greenhouse on their plot to keep the plants healthy, they’d rather spend their time on more durable produce, which they freeze or store in rubber containers in their apartment’s storage locker. This wasn’t the best

down bark mulch and straw to protect plants. “We’re about a month behind,” Mary Jo said, noting if the good weather continues, she’ll be harvesting into October, some winter crops a little later. Besides tending their own plot, the Dawes take part in work parties to keep the sevenacre organic garden in tip-top shape, a requirement of participating in the community garden, along with membership fees and annual dues.

Recently, the farmers started a neighbourhood composting project, which Mary Jo is pretty proud of, and the flowered borders, bird houses and closelyshorn lawns make the seven-acre garden a lovely spot. “I love it because I know its organic and I know where it comes from. It’s good exercise and it’s part of my heritage.” And the beans taste good, too. firstname.lastname@example.org

PoCo biz survey Port Coquitlam residents and retailers are being asked for their feedback on how the city can help local business grow. The mayorâ€™s task force on business development opportunities launched a survey earlier this month to gauge the publicâ€™s views on supporting, attracting and retaining business in PoCo. The poll runs until Sept. 14 and is available online at www.portcoquitlam.ca/bdo; hard copies can also be obtained at city hall and civic recreation facilities. â€œThe entire community benefits from a healthy business sector through improved services, employment and tax revenue,â€? Mayor Greg Moore said in a press release. â€œIn this economy, we need to make sure weâ€™re as competitive as possible and doing what we can to make Port Coquitlam attractive to businesses.â€? The task force is chaired by Coun. Mike Forrest and includes councillors Brad West and Dean Washington as well as officials from the Downtown PoCo BIA, TriCitiesâ€™ Chamber of Commerce and Urban Development Institute. Meanwhile, the task force is hosting a networking reception, called PoCo BizForum, on Oct. 23 at 6 p.m. at the PoCo Inn and Suites. To register, visit www.portcoquitlam.ca/bdo. email@example.com

Man found A man who went missing from the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in May has returned. Coquitlam RCMP reported Gregory Owen Schleen, 49, had been returned to the Coquitlam institution. Schleen had also disappeared in September 2009 while out on a day pass. Schleen’s May disappearance came just a couple of days after David Fomradas walked away from the institution. The two disappearances prompted officials to temporarily suspend unescorted day passes from the forensic hospital.
in the province. The campaign comes after an Ipsos Reid poll found that 40% of respondents who own cellphones admitted to using them — not hands-free, as required by law — while driving.
“Campaign 911 gives citizens an important way to help police take impaired drivers off our roads and sends the message to impaired drivers that other motorists are watching and will report them to police,” Tracy Crawford, MADD Canada chapter services manager, said in a news release. An impaired driver may be driving unreasonably fast, slow or at an inconsistent speed; drifting in and out of lanes; tailgating and changing lanes frequently; and disregarding signals. And motorists who see a potential impaired driver are asked to maintain a safe distance, and pull over or have a passenger call 911 to report: • the location; • a description of the suspect vehicle (colour, make, model, licence plate number); • the direction in
• and a description of the driver. Meanwhile, the Insurance Corp. of BC and police launched a campaign yesterday to crack down on distracted driving — now the third leading cause of car crash fatalities

“The investigation began in November 2011 and initially focused upon the evidence suggesting a marijuana and trafficking organization was active in the southeast district of British Columbia,” Supt. Brian Cantera, officer in charge of the RCMP Dr ug Enforcement Branch in B.C. explained at the press conference. “RCMP gathered evidence indicating the drug trafficking organization was prepared to import and traffic 500 kg of cocaine.” Along with the $4 million dollars seized, RCMP say they also found an assault rifle and handguns at one of the raid locations. “This investigation demonstrated how organized criminal groups engaged in drug trafficking have no respect for municipal, provincial or international borders,” Cantera said. “More concerning is the complete
Brian Oldham was wanted by Mounties but turned himself in on Tuesday. disregard these groups show for Canadian families and public safety, both of which pay the devastating price exacted for criminal profits,” Cantera said in his statement. Cantera said the case demonstrates the role marijuana, a drug oftcharacterized as harmless, plays in the drug trade. “The evidence gathered through this investigation is a stark reminder of the central role marijuana plays in the international
drug trade and the influx of dangerous drugs like cocaine into Canada,” said Cantera. “The flow of marijuana, synthetic drugs and cocaine has always been, and continues to be, international in scope and all effective drug enforcement efforts have recognized this fact.” T he investig ation took 20 months and saw the Southeast District RCMP work with the Mexican Federal Police, U.S. law enforcement and Panamanian authorities. David Giles, vice-president of the Kelowna chapter of the Hell’s Angels, Kevin Van Kalkeren, Michael Read and James Howard are charged with conspiracy to import a controlled substance and conspiracy to traffic a controlled substance; four other men have been charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking. Seven men appeared in court Monday. Another, Brian Oldham, was at large but turned himself in on Tuesday.

Make the call
PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside
o call is too small for the Coquitlam RCMP when it comes to taking drunk drivers off our roads. This week, local Mounties have joined forces with MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) Canada to assure drivers they’ll respond to 911 calls. The police, along with the cities of Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam, are assisting the national safe driving advocates in promoting MADD Canada’s Campaign 911. The campaign, which encourages citizens to call the emergency number to report suspected impaired drivers to police, will be promoted throughout Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam on signs installed by the cities but paid for by MADD. Police can’t be everywhere to catch drunk drivers and while roadside checks are effective, there are times when folks driving under the influence slip through the cracks, making themselves a danger to the public. It’s a simple call to make. But beware, you should be off the road yourself when you make the call to provide a vehicle description and licence plate number or you, too, could be a danger to other drivers. Distracted driving, as police often remind us, is a problem — and against the law — and people who are texting or talking on the phone are as ineffective as drunk drivers. Whatever it takes, these calls should be made to save lives. In the Lower Mainland alone, 20 people died as a result of an impaired driver in 2011 and 143 lives have been lost due to drunk-driving-related incidents in the last five years. It’s true the call may not always result in a drunk driving charge. In some occasions, simply bad driving could be the problem, or it could be the result of a health issue. But police are saying making the call is worth it. Three digits are all it will take and you, too, can potentially save the life of someone’s loved one — or your own.
NDP aims to study pipeline proposals to death BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA DP leader Adrian Dix has announced that one of his first acts as premier would be to withdraw B.C. from the joint review of the Enbridge pipeline proposal from Alberta to Kitimat. The two-year federal government-led review will be mostly done by next May but Dix proposes to start a new provincial assessment to examine the B.C. portion. He doesn’t know how much it would cost and under questioning he all but admitted the intention is to study the pipeline to death. Fresh from a summer tour of the pipeline route to reaffirm solidarity with its opponents, Dix is hardly in a position to consider anything but maximum resistance. As Premier Christy Clark did in her showdown with Alberta over benefits, Dix hinted that provincial permits for river and wildlife
crossings would be made as expensive as possible, if not refused. The same fate awaits the Kinder Morgan plan to twin the existing Trans-Mountain oil pipeline to Burnaby. Dix left the impression that he would undo the years of work that have gone into bringing some rational sense to environmental approvals that can be, and have been, dragged out for years. The B.C. hearings would provide another platform for opponents and more complaints to justify refusal at the provincial level to go along with court cases and direct-action protests. Speaking of which, the frontal assault by agitators at the federal Enbridge hearings has mostly petered out. After 4,000-odd people were signed up to speak, most didn’t bother, and some hearings were cancelled. Apparently, slacktivists such as “Jonathan L. Seagull” and “Cave Man” didn’t make it out of their Vancouver basement suites to tell the panel oil is bad. Professional environmentalists are now wringing their hands over Ottawa’s decision
TRI-CITY NEWS [CCAB AUDITED CIRCULATION 53,469 (MARCH 2009)] 1405 Broadway St., Port Coquitlam, B.C. V3C 6L6 telephone: 604-525-6397 • fax: 604-944-0703
to leave smaller-scale reviews to the province. This means, for example, that there won’t be a duplicate federal review of the urgently needed refit of the John Hart Dam on the Campbell River. One reader suggested that environmental pioneer Roderick Haig-Brown is still spinning in his grave over the damming of this legendary salmon river. Perhaps, but that was in 1947. Does it make sense today to lard pointless bureaucracy onto a reconstruction that replaces wooden pipes and provides earthquake protection, without expanding river impact? NDP environment critic Rob Fleming hammered away at the BC Liberals about this in the spring, reminding them that Auditor General John Doyle had exposed a lack of resources in the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office even before Ottawa’s changes. Fleming makes it sound like a huge new burden has been dumped on B.C. False. Provincial assessment already must be done with the participation of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Transport Canada, the provincial ministries of natural resources and
energy and mines, and of course aboriginal communities. This is why it’s so long and expensive. And don’t be fooled into believing that a federal review would go out and count the tadpoles and caribou again — only desk jobs have proliferated. There weren’t just two levels of duplicate review, but three. Earlier in their mandate, the BC Liberals exempted major projects such as mines and energy generation from local government control, citing the “provincial interest,” similar to the federal authority over projects that cross provincial borders. I agree with the NDP that B.C. environmental assessment needs more resources, in particular to do the follow-up on approved projects, as called for by the auditor general. Forest management needs more money, too. All the more reason not to waste resources on political gestures.

TRI-CITYY LETTERS Honour vets of Korean War
The Editor, An open letter to Canada Post and Prime Minster Stephen Harper: I have written to this newspaper along with a few others in order to make my plea public and perhaps convince Canada Post to reconsider your decision to say no to our veterans to move our prime minister to help. I am unofficially writing on behalf of all Korean War veterans and for those 516 brave Canadian men who died during the war. Those buried on the Korean peninsula remain silent but they are not forgotten by their comrades, families, me and many others. Canada Post represents all of Canada and the stamps produced each year play an important part in portraying Canadian life and history. Since the end of the war in 1953, only a single Canadian Korean War-themed postage stamp has been made and Canada Post refuses to make another. The war lasted three long years and tragically saw the death of several million soldiers and civilians from both sides of the front line. This world historical event involved many allied countries fighting for the first time under the United Nations banner and with a just cause, to stop a war. I ask you both now, the corporation and prime minister, why will Canada Post not honour our veterans who succeeded in winning the greatest prize: peace? Next year is the 60th anniversary of the Korean War ceasefire. Before it is too late, when our veterans have all passed on, please reconsider your decision not to recognize this important historical event with a lasting national honour, a commemorative postage stamp.

Others honour our vets The Editor, Recently, there have been articles about Guy Black stating his case for a second Korean War Stamp. His requests to the Canada Post have been repeatedly denied. As a veteran, I can’t help but wonder what it is about Ottawa and its bureaucrats that causes them to be so disconnected from average Canadians. Within the last year, the American government presented us with certificates of appreciation for serving with them in Korea. The Republic of Korea (South Korea) has always shown its appreciation and gratitude through the Revisitation to Korea Program and the Beautiful Ambassador or Peace Monument and the Commemorative Wall in Burnaby Central Park. It is now presenting Ambassador of Peace medals to Canadians who are unable to make the trip to Korea. Is it too much to ask our own government, which sent the troops to Korea, to print a stamp to recognize their voluntary service. The ranks are thinning, the memories are fading. If not now, when? It is only a stamp but it signifies that soldiers’ sacrifice and service meant something. Frank J. Smyth, Coquitlam (20-year Canadian army veteran: Korea, Egypt, Cyprus, Lebanon)

‘Utterly delightful... fantastic’ continued from front page
By beating a field of LPGA pros that featured 48 of the top 50 players in the world, Ko became the first amateur since 1969 to win the Open and the youngest ever to win an LPGA Tour event — she’ll even have her golf glove encased in the World Golf Hall of Fame in Florida. Alexander, on the other hand, got a free dinner and glass of wine courtesy of Ko’s mother, Tina, at West Vancouver’s Hollyburn Country Club on Sunday night. “I played sports all my life with no notoriety whatsoever,” the affable Alexander told The TriCity News. “I caddy once and look what happens. “It was utterly delightful... fantastic.” A l e x a n d e r vo l u n teered his services to Ko on the recommendation of Scott Rodgers, a teaching pro at Meadow Gardens Golf Club in Pitt Meadows who worked with the youngster leading up to the tournament. Rodgers, a one-time assistant pro at VGC, recommended Alexander carry Ko’s
“I played sports all my life with no notoriety whatsoever. I caddy once and look what happens.” Brian Alexander, a 63-year-old real estate developer who caddied for Lydia Ko when she became the youngest golfer ever to win an LPGA tour event at Coquitlam’s Vancouver Golf Club bag and magic ensued on the Coquitlam links. Ko’s five-under-par 67 Sunday gave her a three-shot victory over another South Korea native, Inbee Park, who bagged the $300,000 firstplace prize despite placing second. “Brian was confident about his reads, it made it more simple for me,” Ko said during a media session afterwards. “[We] got a really good bond and I guess this will be good memories from this week.” Alexander was as much the object of the rampant applause from the packed VGC gallery on the 18th finishing hole as was Ko. “Those last two holes, I wanted to go forever,” Alexander said. “After Lydia hit the fairway on 16, I knew we were in
good shape. There was no pressure after that. It was just phenomenal.” Phenomenal, just like Ko’s game for four straight rounds, including the final one, in which nerves never entered her picture. “She shot 67, which is my best round, too, strangely,” Alexander said. “The difference is, I played the course a thousand times and she’s played it four. “She [drives] the ball about 250 [yards], sometimes 270, but the length didn’t impress me so much as her accuracy, which was phenomenal. She made some short putts that were quite tricky and that other players were sometimes

running six or eight feet past the hole, the greens were that tough. And she didn’t just slide them into the corner [of the cup], she slammed them in the back.” Alexander is certain the women’s golf world has hardly heard the last of Ko. “I have no doubt she’ll be there again if she continues on playing but this was a once-in-alifetime deal for me,” he said. “It’s something I’ll cherish forever.”
KEEL COMPETED While Ko flourished, another amateur, Coquitlam’s own Jisoo Keel, struggled. The 17-year-old shot rounds of 77 and 78 last Thursday and Friday respectively, failing to make the cut to continue on with weekend play. “I was a little frustrated after [Friday] but I wasn’t really disappointed,” said the Grade 12 Gleneagle secondary student, who’s a member at VGC and got an exemption into the Open by winning

a CN Tour event in Richmond last May. “It did feel a little different. Even though it was my hometown course, I wasn’t able to come out as much as I would have liked because I travel so much. The pressure of being on your home course and [playing before] your home crowd kind of got to me but it was still fun. “I’m not as experienced with the media and the pressure of lots of spectators,” Keel said, “but it was a great learning experience and I’ll improve next time.” Two other notable Canadian amateurs also missed the cut, including 14-year-old Brooke Henderson of Smith Falls, Ont., the youngest ever to play in the C a n a d i a n Wo m e n’s Open. Surrey’s A Ram Choi, 20 — like Keel, a VGC member — was also dropped after the second round. firstname.lastname@example.org

Fraser River trip aim is to build green leaders By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Most people wouldn’t think about camping in Port Coquitlam but last week, seven young environmentalists crept out of tents near Colony Farm Regional Park, got their gear ready, and set out on the final leg of a 1,200 km canoe trip to raise awareness about the Fraser River. The youths were part of the Sustainable Living Leadership Program, which aims to build connections between communities along the river and develop projects that promote sustainable living. Last Thursday, the participants toured community gardens at Colony Farm Regional Park and then ate a festive meal with the Kwikwetlem First Nation before bedding down in tents in a clearing beside the Coquitlam River. The next day, they pushed off from a small dock on the Coquitlam River for a paddle to New Westminster, where they met with officials to talk about ways to improve sustainability on the river. “It’s a life-changing journey for these yo u t h , ” s a i d F i n D o n n e l ly, N D P M P for New WestminsterCoquitlam, whose group, the Rivershed Society, started the Sustainable L iv i n g L e a d e r s h i p Program 10 years ago, and who was along for the journey. In 1995, Donnelly swam the length of the Fraser River and formed the society to raise awareness about the importance of the B.C. watershed. He said the Sustainable Living Leadership Program has spawned dozens of community projects and a network has formed of the 67 alumni to share information. One of the youth leaders is Caitlin Hill, a 2 3 - ye a r- o l d f ro m Coquitlam who is the communications and fund development coordinator for the Pacific Parklands Foundation. She got a chance to pitch her plan to raise funds for the Kanaka Creek Watershed Stewardship Centre Project to the group during the trip. She said the journey was “an amazing experience” and she enjoyed camping, eating hearty meals of locally grown fruits and vegetables, and the occasional singa-long and spontaneous

Shoulder & Elbow Arthritis
DIANE STRANDBERG/TRI-CITY NEWS
Caitlin Hill, a Coquitlam resident and SFU grad, gets set to paddle the Fraser River from a dock on the Coquitlam River with the Sustainable Living Leadership Program that aims to promote projects that enhance and protect the Fraser River watershed. A team leader on the Sustainable Living Leadership Program trip, she was preparing for the final leg of a 1,200 km journey along the Fraser River from the headwaters to the mouth. The 24-day trip ended on Sunday.
For a video of the Port Coquitlam leg of the trip, visit www.tricitynews.com. dance party. She plans to share her experience with Pinetree secondary school stu-
dents after the trip. Port Coquitlam Mayor Gre g Moore joined the group in Port Coquitlam for the paddle to New Westminster and said he hoped to get some suggestions from the young people about ways to live with less impact on the environment. Donnelly said the group ate local produce to reduce their carbon footprint, mostly gave up meat because it couldn’t be refrigerated, and maintained a “leave
nothing behind policy” along the trip. In fact, he left The TriCity News reporter with an empty box to recycle before hopping into the large voyager canoe with the rest of the group to paddle the remaining miles, inching ahead on the morning tide toward the Mary Hill Bypass. • The journey concluded Sunday at Jericho Beach in Vancouver.

I have been suffering from severe arthritis on my right shoulder and elbow. With limited range of motion, even simple actions such as putting food in the mouth became very difﬁcult. After a series of low laser therapy at Tri-City Chiropractic Inc., my shoulder and elbow saw great improvement. My range of motion improved signiﬁcantly and life is easier and pain free.

SIGN ME UP 2012! French choir picks ‘Marie’ & aims to attract new singers Maillardville’s francophone choir, Les Échos du Pacifique, has unveiled an ambitious new repertoire for its 39th season. The centrepiece is the 16-movement suite “Elles s’appelaient Marie” by composer France LevasseurOuimet. “The title translates as ‘Their Name was Mary,’” choir conductor Luke Mayba said in a press release, “which refers to the fact that all Catholic women at the time had Mary somewhere in their name. The goal is to honour these women who, despite being ignored by most history books, contributed immeasurably to the development of francophone communities in western Canada.” Mayba, along with a dozen Les Échos choristers, was introduced to the suite last July while attending the international francophone choir festival Les Choralies in Edmonton, where more than a hundred participants performed the suite. “It’s a fun piece to perform thanks to the diversity of styles — from folk jigs to midnight mass,” Maybe said. “But it’s also a

very moving experience as we tell the story of a young woman who leaves her home in Quebec at age 16 and moves out to an Alberta homestead with her husband. We feel her sense of loss and isolation but also her endurance and her faith.” Asked what moved him to choose this piece for the upcoming season with his Coquitlam choir, Mayba responded, “It’s a suite that’s worth being discovered, and it’s particularly relevant for us considering the
recent celebration of 100 years since the arrival of Maillardville’s first francophone pioneers. “I invite any interested singers wanting to practise their French once a week to join us.” The four-part mixed voice adult choir’s rehearsals, which are done entirely in French, begin Sept. 10. Mayba, who also teaches French immersion at New Westminster secondary school, is quick to reassure people who are nervous about their language skills.

Home is where the heart is By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
n the fall of 2009, Elizabeth Russell produced a show at the Richmond Art Gallery called Migration/Immigrant Stories, a research project that gathered tales from new Canadians. The display caught the attention of Ellen van Eijnsbergen, then the visual arts program manager of Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre, who invited Russell to submit a proposal for her gallery on a similar theme. Russell took up the offer and, after her application was accepted, she started to look around the community for who she could partner with. With the help of Astrid Heyerdahl, ECC’s new visual arts manager, the pair drew up a list of people to contact to be part of Russell’s exhibit called Exchanges, which opens Friday. About 80 participants from the Glen Pine Pavilion — a seniors’ centre in Coquitlam — as well as students from Port
Moody secondary and immigrants of all ages living in the Tri-Cities joined Russell for a writing and art workshop in May. Their task? Describe in words and draw in pastel a memory of a place that represents “home” or “homeland.” And the results took Russell by surprise as very few of them created stories or images that represented where they currently live. “With this project, I thought I would learn a lot about the local history of Coquitlam but that didn’t happen,” she said. “No matter which group, they pretty much all had a strong memory about somewhere else.... To me, that showed memories are about distance.” The participants predominately interpreted vibrant landscapes — beach scenes, forests, cityscapes, for example — and not of people or animals. Russell cited the work of Jae Eun Kim, a Korean native who drew boxes to show the densification and uniformness of her country. Often, Russell said, their words were more powerful than their artwork. “Some of them didn’t know how to draw. It
was a very intimidating way of communicating for them. But they all had a story to share, even though their English may not have been perfect.” Russell, a Courtenay resident who teaches art at North Island College, hopes the project “if nothing else gave them the opportunity to express themselves and a voice to tell us who’s actually in the community,” she said. “They’re very proud of where they come from.” Russell herself will have two installations in the exhibit to complement her participants’ work. The first is a lifesize sail with a projection on it of a field in London, England, where she once lived; the second installation comprises seven new paintings and drawings of views from windows where Russell has resided. Meanwhile, as part of Exchanges, viewers will be invited to put on paper their memories of “home” or “homeland.” • The Evergreen Cultural Centre art gallery is open Monday to Saturday, noon to 5 p.m., with free public tours on Saturdays at 2 p.m. For more information, visit www.evergreenculturalcentre.ca.

“Where Do I Service My KIA?” @ Bring in Your KIA vehicle & get
By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
A Port Moody artist says he’s “clearing house” for the Evergreen Line. David Bizzo is selling about 100 artworks — original paintings, giclees and prints, about half of which he created — over the long weekend at his studio in the old Andres Winery. After two years there, Bizzo will vacate the building at 2120 Vintner St., off Clarke Street, by Labour Day to make way for the provincial government, which will take over next Tuesday
to turn the facility into a staging area to build the new rapid transit line to Coquitlam. The Evergreen Line is expected to be running by the summer of 2016. “It’s been a good space to work in,” Bizzo said during a tour last week. “The light is good and there’s a lot of history. It’s a very inspiring place.” Still, Bizzo said he’s equally exciteds about his new digs: He’ll be opening up Spring Street Studios on the ground level of the Burrard Public House (formerly Jake’s Crossing Pub). The business — comprised of six studio spaces and a small
TC actors in fringe fest Four Tri-City residents will be performing in the Vancouver International Fringe Festival next month. Coquitlam’s Dave Secunda will present In the Time of the Dream Warriorr with his daughter, Joylyn. The play, written and directed by William Rubel, will run at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre (1895 Venables St.) and tells the tale of a university student who makes a deal to help his professor find love in exchange for assistance with his spiritual quest. Meanwhile, 17-yearold Hayley Perkins of Port Moody is in the ensemble cast for Zanna,
Don’t!, a fast-paced musical about teenage love presented by Awkward S t a g e P ro d u c t i o n s. Zanna, Don’t! runs at CBC Studio 700 (700 Hamilton St.). And Port Coquitlam’s Evelyn Chew is in Burnt Thicket Theatre’s She Has A Name, a drama about sex trafficking, written by Andrew Kooman, that was at the Montreal Fringe Festival in June. Chew plays Number 18 in the production that runs at the Firehall Arts Centre (280 Cordova St.).

public gallery — will be in the old liquor store on the ground level, which was also once the Talk of the Town cabaret. “We’re hoping we’ll be the talk of the town in the City of the Arts,” quipped Bizzo, who heads up the Burrard Inlet Artists’ Association, a nonprofit organization. The 2,000-square foot area in Moody Centre is due to open by January 2013 — the city’s centennial year. • The art sale runs from Aug. 31 to Sept. 3, noon to 5 p.m. at 2120 Vintner St. Artists wanting to rent out space at Spring Street Studios can call 778-227-8480.

BIG SHOT Kevin Olson of the Coquitlam Adanacs lets fire at Langley Thunder goalie Brodie MacDonald – an ex-Jr. Adanac – during the WLA best-of-seven final series. Olson netted two goals as Coquitlam won a 7-6 squeaker Monday at Langley Events Centre to stay alive in their bid for a Mann Cup berth. Game 6 is set for tonight (Wednesday) at 7:45 p.m. at Poirier Sports Complex. GARY AHUJA/BLACK PRESS
A’s back-up Shute shuts down Thunder By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS
andy Delmonico thinks its sweet that his Coquitlam Adanacs continue to measure up to the defending-champion Langley Thunder. What stinks, the A’s GM believes, are equipment measurements on his goalie Nick Rose. Despite losing their Western Lacrosse Association MVP stopper to a game misconduct because his pads were deemed too big midway through the second period Monday, the A’s withstood a late Thunder charge to prevail 7-6 at Langley Events Centre. The victory allowed the A’s to stave off elimination and force a sixth game in the best-of-seven final series tonight (Wednesday) at Poirier Sports Complex, 7:45 p.m. After Rose made nine stops before his ejection with the A’s ahead 3-1, seldom-used backup Adam Shute came in and stopped 25 of 30 shots as Coquitlam stymied Langley’s deep cast of stick wizards. “It’s a whole lot of rubbish,” Delmonico said of Rose’s equipment measurement. “The sticks and pads all come from the factory that way, Nick doesn’t change them. If
Serving the Community for 27 years.
they [pads] are out by a quarter of an inch, is that how we decide who goes to the Mann Cup? It’s rubbish, I say.” Hardly trash was the playing of the A’s defenders, whom Delmonico called “absolutely outstanding the whole game,” including for the last four minutes in which they held the surging Thunder goal-less and preserved the one-goal lead to the end. Jr. Adanacs call-up Robert Church boosted the A’s lead to 7-2 with a goal five minutes into the third before Langley whipped in four goals in 10 minutes to make it a one-goal difference. After that, Shute and the A’s defensive cast shut the door while the Coquitlam coaching staff held its collective breath. “We’re not doing anything easy, I’ve gotta tell you,” said Delmonico, who also serves as an A’s assistant coach. “It’s killing the coaching staff. I’m worn out. I hope I make it through the series.” Kevin Olson and another Jr. Adanacs’ call-up, Ben McIntosh, each tallied twice for Coquitlam, with singles going to Church, Ryan Johnson and team leading scorer Dane Dobbie, who added four assists. Lewis Ratcliff paced Langley with two goals and three helpers and Coquitlam out-

shot the hosts 45-40, including 17-9 in the first frame. On Saturday, the Thunder’s Alex Turner scored four minutes into the second overtime period as Langley won 8-7 at Poirier to take a three games to one lead in the series. Olson led the A’s that game with three markers.

JR. A’S 2ND AGAIN AT MINTO
Adanacs GM Randy Delmonico
Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs were obviously the best team in the province this B.C. Junior A lacrosse league season. Orangeville Northmen were obviously the best team in the country. The Northmen followed up their 19-6 romp Friday over the Jr. A’s with a 9-4 triumph Saturday to sweep the best-of-three Minto Cup final series in two straight games in Whitby, Ont. The Northmen, who won back-to-back Mintos in 2008 and ’09 before Coquitlam won as hosts in 2010, went 3-0 in round-robin play and 5-0 overall to prove tops in the four-team tournament, which included the Calgary Mountaineers and the defending-champion hosts, the Whitby Warriors. Last year, the Jr. A’s won the first game of the final before Whitby won the last two to capture the crown. Orangeville received a bye in the final via
their first place round-robin showing, while the Jr. A’s brushed aside the Warriors 15-11 in last Wednesday’s semifinal to advance to the championship series. On Saturday, the Jr. A’s led 2-1 after the first period before the Northmen stormed back to out-score the westerners 5-1 in the second and 8-2 the rest of the way. Wesley Berg scored twice for the Jr. A’s, whose other goals came courtesy of Ben McIntosh and Reid Reinholdt. Davide DiRuscio was outstanding in the Jr. A’s cage, stopping 57 shots as Coquitlam was out-shot by a lopsided 66-34 margin. Coquitlam was making its fourth straight appearance in the Minto Cup tourney, after having dominated the Delta Islanders in five games in their best-of-seven provincial final.

Coquitlam 14-yearold Henry Lee went wire-to-wire to win the B.C. Juvenile boys golf championship last week at Princeton Golf Club. Lee took a four-stroke lead into Thursday’s final day and shot 74 to finish with a threeround total of three-
under-par 213, three strokes better than the next best player. “I really didn’t expect to win coming in,” Lee said. “I am just happy to be called the Juvenile champion.” Coquitlam’s Jooho Lee finished fifth in the 64-shooter field.

After a successful pilot project last year, the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce is again launching the business mentorship program. Aimed at developing the next generation of business leaders in the Tri-Cities, the program needs Chamber members to come forward and become mentors. A maximum of 20 mentors are needed. Each must make a three-month commitment to the program and one youth mentee. “You can help shape the future of our community by giving a young business person tools and insight into how to be successful,” Rick Pasin “Young entrepreneurs face so many challenges today. You can help shape the future of our community by giving a young business person tools and insight into how to be successful,” said Rick Pasin, a Chamber director and chair of the Youth Entrepreneurial Committee. Ideal mentors are members who are established business people in the Tri-Cities with experience and expertise to share with a committed youth mentee. “We never lack for mentees,” said Pasin. “Many of them already have the drive and determination. What they lack is the experience and guidance that a mentor can provide.” For more information on the Youth Mentorship Program or to signup online as a mentor go to www.tricitieschamber. com/pages/Youth. The deadline for signing up as a mentor is Sept. 14.

Helping Seniors Stay Safely at Home The growing incidence of senior scams is putting many older adults in harm’s way, threatening to strip them of their assets, independence and trust. That’s why Home Instead Senior Care network launched the Protect Seniors from Fraud Campaign. Statics indicate seven in 10 crimes against older Canadians have never been reported. Seniors do not believe the incident was important enough to seek help or have dealt with it themselves. Seniors are reluctant to talk about being scammed as they feel ashamed and embarrassed. These 5 tips are recommended to help keep seniors from being exploited. Shredding documents: Information that could be useful to criminals would be Banking and Financial Statements, Credit Card Statements, offers or other Financial Information. Documents that are needed to be kept, such as tax ﬁling and car titles, should be stored in a safe deposit box. Do-Not-Call Registry: Add seniors to the national Do-Not-Call Registry. Instruct the senior to hang up if they get solicitation calls. Remind them of how difﬁcult it can be to recognize a scam. www.lnnte-dncl. gc.ca/index-eng National Do Not Call List Web site; Phone Number: 1-866-5803625.

a phone call that you did not initiate.” “No Solicitation”: Post a “No Solicitation” notice on their front door. Help sort through his or her incoming mail. Watch T.V with a loved one to watch out for there interest in shopping shows.
Personalized Dementia Solutions helps you to be the best caregiver you can be for your loved one(s) with dementia. We help you by generating creative personalized solutions to better manage the often difﬁcult behaviours associated with dementia. As a result, you will feel more conﬁdent and less stress in your role by learning new techniques and gaining more dementia knowledge.
What is your favourite thing about what you do?
If you can’t be there for your senior: Seek trustworthy people who can serve as eyes and ears for seniors. Be able to screen door-to-door, telephone or computer scammers. Helpers could be neighbors, relatives, friends, faith community members or professional caregivers such as those from Home Instead Senior Care network.
I am passionate about helping families affected by dementia. I love seeing family members smile as they thank me for making an immense difference in their daily lives.
How do most of your clients/customers hear about you? It has been mainly through word of mouth; from my dementia educational workshops; the company website and newsletter.
For more information about protecting your seniors from scammers or for a free kit, contact your local Home Instead Senior Care ofﬁce, or visit ProtectSeniorsFromFraud.com.

What’s one thing you would like people to know about your business? Besides the fact that this type of service does exist, I would like people to know that with 14 years of experience working in long-term care and as a former Executive Director for an Alzheimer Society, I acquired an abundance of creative ideas that have proven to be successful in managing behaviours associated with dementia.
Where do you see your business in ﬁve years? I see it remaining very active. With the aging population and dementia on the rise, this type of service is going to be highly needed for families, especially as the lack of available beds in care homes increases. In the next six months I will be publishing an E-book called, “Cracking the Dementia Code” to help families across Canada learn creative ways to manage the challenging behaviours of their loved ones.

What’s one thing you would like people to know about your organization? Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation purchases 70 per cent of Eagle Ridge Hospital’s medical equipment. What are your most popular services and events? On Sept. 28th we are holding the 22nd Annual Evening of Caring Gala. The Gala is an event of pure philanthropy as the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation raises tens of thousands of dollars for much needed hospital equipment in the fastest growing community in the Fraser Health Region. The event is held annually at the Red Robinson Show Theatre in Coquitlam. It consists of a cocktail reception, plated sit-down dinner, live and silent auctions, rafﬂes and fundraising through Fund-A-Need. The fundraising revenues we achieve in just one night would otherwise take several months to accomplish. The individual tickets cost $160, or $1,200 for a table of eight. You can upgrade your Gala experience by purchasing a Heart of Gold Table for $2,000 for a table of eight, which includes personalized bar service, an upgraded meal, an exclusive reception and more.
