Don Reeves loves his newsboy cap, but it proved a bit of an artistic challenge for Gillian Wright, who was among five members of the Heritage Life Drawing Society who sketched veterans from the George Derby Centre. The portraits will be on display at the New Westminster Public Library through November.

Don Reeves is so enamoured with the tweed newsboy cap his daughter brought back for him from London, it’s rarely left his head since he got it last spring. Much to the consternation of Gillian Wright. Wright is one of five members of the Heritage Life Drawing Society who took it upon themselves to sketch 11 veterans living at the

George Derby Centre for an exhibition that runs at the New West Public Library through to the end of November. And the hat’s fine threads, in their herringbone pattern, proved no small challenge for Wright’s pencils. But upon seeing his portrait for the first time at a special reception at the George Derby Centre in late October, Reeves declares himself pleased. “That’s a real good portrait,” says

Calling it “underdeveloped” with a car culture, the city has come up with some ways to spruce up lower Twelfth Street. A report going before council on Monday says the plan is for the neighbourhood from Fourth Avenue down to Columbia to be high-density with a mix of residential and commercial, and pedestrian friendly. “The area is currently underdeveloped and characterized by lowdensity automobileoriented uses that do not create a pleasant pedestrian environment,” said the report. A recent proposal by a church to redevelop the site at the corner of Third Avenue and Twelfth Street spurred the city to come up with some guidelines to create attractive streetscapes that are conducive to walking and cycling while accommodating development, greenways, commerce, transit and utilities, said the report. It proposes several initiatives, including:

NEW WESTMINSTER HEALTHIER COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP COMMITTEE – COMMUNITY MEMBER RECRUITMENT The New Westminster Healthier Community Partnership Committee is a partnership between the City of New Westminster, Fraser Health and School District #40. The committee is tasked with positively impacting the health of citizens of New Westminster and is based on the premise that many health issues can be best resolved through community-based initiatives. It is also intended to move the focus of health from treatment and remediation to promotion and prevention. If you are a community member who is interested in sitting on the committee, please forward your name and contact information, as well as a brief description as to your interest. There are four to five meetings per year and you must be able to meet during the day. The next two committee meetings are scheduled for 1:30 to 3:30 pm on November 22, 2012 and January 24, 2013. Please forward your information to: John Stark, Senior Social Planner, City of New Westminster, 511 Royal Avenue, New Westminster, BC, V3L 1H9. For more information, please call 604-515-3777.

Committees are created by Mayor and Council to consider information concerning specific issues which would otherwise absorb the time and attention of Council. By fulfilling this role, committees enable Council to perform its legislative function more effectively and efficiently. A committee must therefore operate in accordance with the specific mandate and terms of reference or bylaw approved by Council. The Local Government Act provides that all proceedings of a committee are subject to the approval of Council (except if certain powers are delegated by bylaw).

Downtown jumbotron OK with Quay residents

Veterans take keen interest ⫸

Support for Plaza 88 plans for large digital sign despite city staff recommendation to reject it Grant Granger

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

Although city staff is concerned Plaza 88’s plans for a huge digital sign will create light intrusion for Quayside condos, the area’s residents’ associations are all for it. Plaza 88 is asking the city to allow it to put up a fullmotion digital sign that would be more than three times as big as the city’s sign bylaw allows. It would be placed on a wall above Columbia Street facing the waterfront. A planning department report to be presented to council on Monday says city staff are concerned the light from the 732-square foot (15x44-foot) sign could affect residences along the Quay and parts of Columbia Street. The report also says the intrusion could become even more of an issue when the parking lot in front of the Inn at the Quay is redeveloped for high density multi-family residential. Penny McIvor, president of the Quayside Community Board (QCB), said the lights shouldn’t be a problem. “If [staff] live in New Westminster, then by all means they can oppose it … It’s not facing a ton of residences, it’s facing the river

and not people’s bedrooms,” said McIvor. “I can’t see it interfering.” Plaza 88 made a presentation to the QCB board on Oct. 24, and its members unanimously passed a motion to send a letter of support to council, said McIvor. A presentation made to the Downtown Residents Association on Sept. 26 didn’t raise any concerns by its members, said president Jocelyn Smith. “It doesn’t really directly affect the Downtown.” McIvor pointed out there are already too many struggling businesses in the city’s Downtown so anything that can be done to support them shouldn’t be discouraged as long as the ads are for mall retailers and community announcements. Plaza 88’s

application commits to no third-party advertising and 10 civic messages an hour. “We’re OK with it because we need to promote what’s in the mall to make sure the small businesses don’t fail,” said McIvor. “We’d like to see one screen with all the businesses on it rather than 50 different signs and logos all over the building. “We’re trying to promote the businesses of New Westminster and that’s our own backyard. We want the businesses that go in there to survive. Ninety per cent of those who live in New Westminster don’t even know there’s a shopping mall in there.” The report noted a city bylaw prohibits signs from being bigger than 20 square metres (215 sq. ft.).

“It’s very validating,” says Yoying Orosa, the director of therapeutic programs at the Derby Centre. “They’ve had a lot of experiences that they may not be able to articulate because they didn’t have the benefit of therapy or counseling when they got out of the military.” Many of the veterans took a keen interest in the process of creating their portraits, sidling up to the artists as they worked on their preliminary sketches, offering tidbits of information that were then incorporated into the final drawing, such as Reeves’ service in India being marked by a map in the background. “They’re really aware of us drawing,” says Wright. “They have a real sense of pride that someone wanted to draw them.” The process of sitting for a formal portrait session is also much more intimate and intense than a photo session, says Lacharite. A lot of photos never leave the computer any more,” says Lacharite. “Drawing is a lot longer lasting.” It’s also more open to artistic license. “You’re given the opportunity to choose the face you like,” says Wright. “I probably took off 20 years on all of them. Which, judging by the smile on Reeve’s face, suits him just fine.

“There are billboards off the Pattullo Bridge bigger than that, so I don’t understand that,” said McIvor. The bylaw also prohibits signs with flashing or moving lights, animation, or those that could cause a potential hazard to traffic—all of which the proposed board would have, according to the report. The sketches of veterans will be displayed McIvor said the size of the in the stairwell to the New Westminster building’s wall will make the Prices in effect Thu Public Library’s second floor through to screen look like a speck.

OPINION NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

PuBLISHED & PRINTED BY BLACK PRESS LTD. at 7438 Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9

ADRIAN RAESIDE:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Protest or apathy? If the number of people sitting on the steps of B.C.’s legislature or pounding signs into the lawn in protest of oil tankers on our coast and pipelines crossing the province is any indication, one has to ask just how many British Columbians are actually against Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline project? Approximately 3,000 people were in Victoria Monday for the Defend Our Coast protest – a far cry from what organizers anticipated to be the largest act of civil disobedience on the oil sands issue in Canada. Disobedience included staking a 235-metre black banner (the length of a super tanker) across the legislature’s lawn. While protesters were prepared to go to jail for the cause, Victoria Police simply watched the banner – and the event – unfurl. If the media coverage and politicking by B.C. Premier Christy Clark and NDP leader Adrian Dix is to be believed, opposition to the oil issue has blanketed the province, with tens of thousands of residents fearing for the pristine coastline and super natural forests and valleys. If so, where were all these opponents when the chance to voice an opinion and hopefully make a difference presented itself ? Could it be a good number of residents see the project as a good thing for the province? Do they see jobs for B.C. residents? Or tax dollars generated to pay for the services needed in Canada? Or perhaps the majority considers the projects a done deal and all the posturing is nothing more than a bunch of rhetoric – and that the oil will flow because the powers-that-be want it and to hell with the desires of the people and the future of the environment. Or even worse, they don’t care. It wouldn’t be the first time apathy raised its ugly head in British Columbia. —Black Press

Time to try some new chairs Let’s start with some assumptions. The New Westminster School District has many great programs. Great teachers, principals, special education assistants, support staff and so on. And of course, great kids. But the dynamic on school board needs work. Most trustees agree. Most residents who follow school board affairs would agree. And it’s not about arguing, which is what passionate people often do. Or about politics, which they say creeps in any time you’ve got more than two people in one room. It’s about effectiveness. The New West school board isn’t as effective as it could be, as the recent “surprise” $2.8-million deficit, the third in 11 years, makes plain. Two weeks ago I suggested the board hire a communications person, because SD40 does a poor job sharing information in the community. Misunderstandings are common, and controversial issues tend to

Chris Bryan editor@newwestnewsleader.com

blow up rather than dissipate. While some agree with my suggestion, others have told me such a person will not be effective until a better spirit of cooperation develops on the board. So how can the board be more cooperative, and hence, more effective? A good start would be to elect two fresh faces as chair and vicechair. For years, those positions have been held for the most part by current chair James Janzen, and current vice-chair Michael Ewen. Typically they swap roles when they come up for renewal each year. Both are long-time veterans— Ewen, for instance, with more

than three decades of service on the board—who have made a substantial contribution. But a dynamic has developed and switching things up will open the door and let in some fresh air. It’s time to pass the torch, and let others have a chance to grow into the role. One of the newly elected trustees from 2011, either Jonina Campbell, David Phelan or MaryAnn Mortensen, should be named chair the next time around. All are knowledgeable, hard working and able. Campbell and Phelan are backed by the New Westminster & District Labour Council, while Mortensen is a member of the Voice slate. For balance, if a labour trustee is named chair, the Voice trustee should be named vice-chair, or vice versa. The importance of these two roles cannot be overstated. In particular, the chair of the board sets the tone not only for school board meetings, but also

helps establish the tenor of the conversation and the image of the board in the community. An effective chair is like a good captain of a hockey team, resolving disputes, building understanding through tools like reflective listening, and striving for consensus. According to a document from the Saskatchewan School Boards Association, titled “Becoming a Better Board Chair,” an effective chair runs “efficient and productive board meetings,” is a “leader who helps others achieve defined goals” and “is a good policy leader who clearly understands the roles and responsibilities of both the board and of the school division administration.” Neither Jonina Campbell, David Phelan nor MaryAnn Mortensen has had a chance to prove they’re capable of being this kind of chair. But it’s time they were given a chance to try. editor@newwestnewsleader.com

Some things are best placed on the board table of cigarette smoke, and the foyer often reeked of smoke as well. Complaints to the administrative staff about the tendency of some students to engage in excessive speeding, revving of engines and loud music in the parking lot early in the morning and other inconsiderate behaviours were treated dismissively.

Re: New name, location for Sprott Shaw (NewsLeader, Oct. 26) It is with a huge sigh and heartfelt relief that many of us on Eighth Avenue wave an emphatic “goodriddance” to SprottShaw College. From the time they arrived here the presence of the college and some of the students was a problem. The sheer number of student cars parked on the street was a constant irritant. Littering by the students, especially of fast-food garbage containers and cigarette butts was endlessly aggravating. City street cleaning vehicles routinely missed sections because of the constantly parked vehicles. The garbage generated by the students carpeted the parking lot areas and the areas next to the building. Using the ATM at the credit union meant walking through wafting clouds

applies to all of it. Why does budgeting not take into account both income and expense? Is the budget not formed prior to its annual existence, or is the board and its hired bookkeepers not well enough informed to understand the proper melding of income and expense and planning? This obvious disconnect needs to be addressed. The panic sounds we get from newspaper reporting sound like the deficit has already become a debt. At the very least someone has now caught up with disparity by not planning within one’s means, and not for the first time. Terry Smith -via email

Recently, the issues of school trustees having equal access to information, and the board’s ability to conduct its work have been raised. Concerns over timeliness of, and access to information need to be addressed at the board table where trustees have the opportunity to discuss such matters as a group. Presenting these concerns in the media in absence of context and discussion is divisive and unproductive at best. When we were elected as trustees to the board of education of school district 40, we pledged to work together to effectively carry out the duties of the board. It is the board’s responsibility to address communication concerns at the board table so that we can focus on the important work in front of us.

Further home price dips forecast in 2013 High-end Vancouver sales skew average, don’t reflect typical prices Jeff Nagel

jnagel@blackpress.ca

Greater Vancouver’s average home prices should drop nearly two per cent next year after falling 5.9 per cent in 2012, according to a new housing forecast from the B.C. Real Estate Association. The weakness in the real estate market is projected to be softest in single detached houses next year, with a 2.7 per cent drop to $1.09 million in the average price paid in Greater Vancouver in 2013. Attached homes are projected to decline 0.7 per cent in average price to $555,000, while condos would gain 0.3 per cent to $443,000. The BCREA report cautions those average prices were skewed up in 2011 by a spate of

high-end home sales in the Vancouver area. More typical homes in the region didn’t run up as fast as the average, nor have they slipped as much since the peak, it said, adding most home prices should remain “essentially flat” through 2013. Sales are expected to rebound by almost 14 per cent after falling by an estimated 20 per cent in 2012. Demand from buyers has ebbed since the federal government imposed tighter mortgage qualification rules. Those measures, aimed to curb rising levels of consumer debt, were equivalent to a one per cent jump in mortgage rates for first-time buyers, according to economists at the BCREA. “Market fundamentals suggest stronger sales activity ahead,” the BCREA report says in its

Greater Vancouver outlook. “Full-time employment has been growing at a three to four per cent clip for several months, mortgage interest rates remain at or near historic lows and the population base continues to expand.” It says that should mean a return to “more balanced” real estate market conditions in Metro Vancouver as the current buyer’s market moderates. Multi-family buildings are expected to account for 80 per cent of new units built this year, while singlefamily house starts are forecast to drop below 8,000 units for the first time since 2009. The province’s economy is projected to grow at a rate of 2.3 per cent next year and the unemployment rate is to slip below seven per cent. In the Fraser Valley real estate zone, which

includes Surrey, White Rock and North Delta, the forecast calls for a 0.3 per cent drop in detached house prices to an average $600,000 in 2013, a 0.7 per

cent drop in attached homes to $333,500 and a 1.4 per cent gain in apartments to $225,000. It estimates overall average residential

prices in the Fraser Valley will have fallen 3.1 per cent by the end of this year. The report cautions that fluctuation mainly reflects changes in the

mix of homes selling and that typical homes, tracked through benchmark prices, have shown “only modest change” since the end of 2009.

Transit gaining little ground against car use Drivers still dominate latest TransLink trip survey Jeff Nagel

jnagel@blackpress.ca

The car remains king – despite the aim of getting many more Metro Vancouverites taking transit, cycling or walking. TransLink’s trip diary survey takes a 24-hour snapshot of residents’ movements every three years and newly released results show transit use hasn’t caught on as fast as many advocates had hoped. The share of trips taken on transit in the region edged up only slightly from 13 per cent in 2008 to 14 per cent in 2011. Walking has stayed unchanged through multiple surveys at about 11 per cent. And cycling grew from 1.5 to 1.8 per cent in the three-year period. Meanwhile, 73 per cent of all trips were taken by car – down only slightly from 75 per cent in 2011 and 77 per cent in 1994. “I think we’re going in the right direction,” SFU City Program director Gordon Price said. But he acknowledged the latest numbers are a long way from the goals set out in TransLink’s

Transportation 2040 plan, which aims to have the majority of trips in the region taken by the sustainable modes of transit, walking or cycling by that year. “It does tell me that people are still in the learning mode,” Price said. “You don’t get instant conversion. There really is a learning experience you have to go through.” Price is among those who saw the 2010 Olympics as a major turning point for transit in Metro Vancouver, converting dyed-inthe-wool drivers when they saw how effective good transit could be. He’s still optimistic that more detailed trip numbers still to be released for each sub-region will show big gains in cities served by the Canada Line. But he also expects the regional average numbers released so far mask big disparities in transit and car use between the rapidly growing outer suburbs and Vancouver and other areas where transit has taken off. “It suggests to me we’re seeing the emergence of two different kinds of regions – one cardependent and the other with transportation choice.” He noted transit capacity has been significantly expanded in

CyCliNg trips up but maiNly iN VaNCouVer The number of bike-only trips rose 26 per cent from 2008 but that gain was concentrated in the City of Vancouver More than half of the 106,500 cycling trips a day were made to or from work, according to TransLink’s trip diary results for 2011. Region-wide, it found there were 4.9 bike trips per 100 residents. That soared to 12.1 trips per 100 residents in Vancouver, with particularly heavy concentrations along the Broadway corridor and Strathcona-Commercial Drive. Richmond/Delta was the second highest sub-region at 3.4 trips The share of trips in the region taken by car has only dropped from 77 per cent per 100, followed by 2.8 on the in 1994 to 73 in 2011.

Mark Brand took a big risk in opening restaurants in Gastown, but they’re thriving thanks to his mantra of keeping it local as much as possible. He says Gastown and New Westminster share the similar fundamentals that make them ripe for resurgence.

says Brand. “A lot of people trade off tags, but the consumer is way too educated.” Brand keeps it real by keeping it local. He lives in the area. He hires local residents. He sources local products. He gives back to the local community. “We take a multi-faceted approach by integrating a good experience with a good impact on a neighbourhood that really needs it,” says Brand.

Mark Brand runs restaurants. He also changes lives and transforms neighbourhoods. Brand, 37, has worked around food since he was 12 years old, sweeping the floor in an East Vancouver pizza shop.

DFO cuts to hit fish habitat protection offices Loss of biologists a risk to salmon, critics warn Jeff Nagel Black Press

Fishery observers predict more trouble ahead for already struggling salmon runs in B.C. if Fisheries and Oceans Canada goes ahead with leaked plans to eliminate a third of its habitat biologists in the Pacific region. DFO’s fisheries protection branch would be slashed from 90 to 60 workers, according to internal documents. “A few years ago they had 120, so we’re looking at a 50 per cent reduction,” said Otto Langer, a former DFO biologist and habitat assessment manager. The cuts are part of a broader move by Ottawa to balance the budget in part through reduced spending in the federal civil service.

But Langer said fewer front-line scientists will leave salmon in B.C. rivers and streams dangerously exposed to ecological damage from pollution, development and other threats, such as disease and overfishing. “I think they’re trying to save industry from any hassles in getting approvals,” he said, calling it a reflection of the “anti-science, antienvironment” bent of the Harper government as new oil pipelines are pursued as a national priority. Langer said the ability to protect the environment will be further hit because many senior biologists are to be offered buyouts or transfers and be replaced with more junior ones. “You’re probably losing 33 per cent of your staff and probably 80 per cent of your experience.”

A large habitat protection office in New Westminster would be eliminated and other offices and staff would be cut upstream along the Fraser River, he said. Plans to reduce DFO’s budget by approximately five per cent were leaked more than a year ago, but few observers expected the hit to be so heavily focused on habitat biologists. Watershed Watch Salmon Society executive director Craig Orr said the cuts come after earlier federal moves this year to loosen environmental assessment rules and weaken the fish habitat protections contained in the Fisheries Act. “There’s going to be far fewer people in the federal government to look after fish habitat,” Orr said. “It seems to be part of a larger mandate of government

Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s plan to reduce the number of habitat biologists on the West Coast could expose local fish stocks to greater risk as oversight is reduced.

to downgrade environmental protection.” DFO representatives could not be reached for comment. Federal staffing levels were raised as a concern at the Cohen Inquiry into the decline of Fraser River sockeye salmon. Evidence from DFO memos showed some staff in Interior field offices had been warning for years they were unable to keep pace with proposed

Growing need for technicians and technologists Buildings are more than an assemblage of steel, concrete and bricks. From the most mundane warehouse, to a soaring condo tower to a gleaming glass office complex, every building is the product of a complex weave of architectural design, engineering, science and technology. At the centre of that weave, tying together the creative impulses of the architect with the pragmatic realities of the engineer, the architectural scientist uses digital technology to understand how buildings work, how they perform, how building envelopes withstand the elements and stresses of their environment. “There’s a great team behind every great piece of architecture,” says Ron Kato, the head of the Architectural Science degree program at BCIT. Graduates of the four-year program understand architecture along with the technical aspects of construction, says Kato. As more and more buildings are designed and engineered in the digital realm, using computer assisted design and three-dimensional modelling, they’re becoming more complex, creating a growing need for architectural scientists and technologists, he says. “Digital technology makes buildings

Is your home insurance earthquake ready?

A Royal super sniper Grant Granger

sports@newwestnewsleader.com

Generally, earthquakes are not covered by basic home insurance, and BCAA suggests keeping the following things in mind when adding earthquake coverage to your policy: • Mild earthquakes can cause major damage. A slight shift in your foundation can result in repairs that may cost more than your earthquake insurance deductible. • Understand the risk. While any natural disaster is difficult to predict, small- to mediumsize earthquakes are common in B.C. and more than 1,200 are recorded annually.

JERALD WALLISER/DOUGLAS COLLEGE

Top scorer Sahil Sandhu will lead the Douglas College Royals into the Canadian college men’s soccer championships being played in Coquitlam next week.

too, especially since he took the shot with his left foot which is not his natural side. “I felt pretty good when I hit it,” admitted Sandhu. “I felt like it was one of my top goals.” Funny thing is, when he began the game his job was to keep balls out of the net, not in. “When I started playing I was on defence, playing centre back and was still leading the league in scoring goals,” said Sandhu, who is in his second season with the Royals and hopes to be able to eventually play for either

SFU or UBC. “It just comes natural to me. I know where to go. I’m always moving, I can’t stay still.” Myers is extremely appreciative of Sandhu’s skills and what he does for the Royals. “Sahil’s huge. Especially me being in defence, we know we’re going to score and we just have to concentrate on our job. We don’t have to worry about the goals being there because we know they’re going to be there with Sal,” said Myers.

• Decide what you want covered. You can choose to cover your building only or include your contents as well. Coverage costs will depend on the value of your home/ possessions, location, or the earthquake deductible you choose. • Cost of additional living expenses. Earthquake insurance covers a range of additional living expenses incurred in the event it is unsafe to stay in your home. • Replacement costs can add up. Replacing one or two belongings may be manageable, but collectively replacing contents bought over a lifetime

all at once can be prohibitively expensive and even more than your deductible. • Don’t go through it alone. Your insurance company should be reachable day or night, and have the resources to help you by arranging professional assistance and support. BCAA encourages homeowners and families to develop an emergency preparedness plan, practice emergency drills, and keep an emergency kit on hand. For more information on earthquake preparedness visit publicsafety.gc.ca or visit bcaa. com/earthquake. There’s no way to predict when a natural disaster will occur, but if you understand the risk and take the right precautions you can enjoy peace-of-mind, knowing you’re as prepared as possible. Contact BCAA to learn more about earthquake insurance and to discuss the options available to you. No-one can prevent disasters, but our Insurance Specialists take the time to get to know you better so you get the coverage that’s right for you. Zlata Stump is an Insurance Specialist at BCAA.

Soccer squads are always scouring suburban pitches for a fast strike weapon that can put away opponents at opportune times. Goal scorers like Sahil Sandhu of the Douglas College Royals men’s team are rare commodities that can be game changers. They can even be the difference in capturing championships. Sahil’s ability to fire accurate shots powered the Royals, who are based in New Westminster, to a first-place finish in the Pacwest conference, and then to the provincial championship this past weekend. They’ll be hoping the Burnaby Central graduate will continue to be on target as they aim for a national title at the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association championship in Coquitlam next week. Sandhu sniped 15 goals in 12 games during the regular season to easily win the league scoring title and also be named Pacwest most valuable player. His best snipe may have been the most important goal he got all season. It came on the second last week against their rivals, the Vancouver Island University Mariners. It gave the Royals a 2-0 lead in the game, which basically secured victory not only in that match but in the standings as well. It also received a high score for artistic impression. “He was about 20 yards out and just looked up and curled it right into the top corner just out of nowhere. It just left the whole team going, ‘Wow.’ “ said Royals captain Dylan Myers, a New Westminster native. Sandhu’s pretty proud of it,

Following the events of the past weekend, B.C. residents are advised to consider the consequences of an earthquake and review their insurance coverage to ensure protection against such disasters.

Recognizing the fresh new wave of New West!

“The thing with Sal is in practice I know I’m going up against the best striker in the country, and if I can handle him I can handle anyone.” Myers said Sandhu, who was part of the Vancouver Whitecaps residency program at Burnaby Central, has a strong work ethic, is unselfish, fast and creative. “The one time you think you know what’s coming he switches it up on you and goes a completely different route,” said Myers, who added Sandhu is frequently looking to set up his teammates. The Royals headed to the season with a berth in the nationals in the back pockets of their kits. “The beginning of the year it was a thing of gelling as a team, and taking it one game at a time as best you could, which is difficult knowing that whatever happens we were going to nationals,” said Myers. “But we wanted to send a message that we earned it and we did it on merit, and that we are a great team.

“Definitely teams want to beat us because for the last four years we’ve won the league.” Since their first-place finish last season was wiped out for using an ineligible player, some redemption was gained by winning the provincials. That wasn’t the big redemption, though. That was reserved for what Myers described as a “big-time choke” in 2010. “With that we felt we had the best team going in but we just didn’t get a chance to prove ourselves. To be honest for most of the guys on this team going into this final it was a redemption of losing the semifinal two years ago when we choked against [University of Northern British Columbia],” said Myers. “That was redemption.” Reaching their first two goals has been accomplished. Now it’s time to set their sights on the third and final one. “We knew there’d be ups and downs, but for the most part we felt we played some good soccer, but we also feel we haven’t played our best. Hopefully we’re going to peak at the right time,” said Myers.

The Simon Fraser University Clan women’s basketball team’s venture into NCAA Division I territory on Tuesday resulted in a 67-52 loss to the Washington State Cougars. SFU kept up to WSU in the first half, trailing 31-28 at the intermission before the Cougars took over. “We knew how they would play and we VAN LAARE did not execute what we wanted to do,” said head coach Bruce Langford in a SFU press release. “We outrebounded them big in the first half which kept us close despite shooting poorly. In the second half, they took it up a notch and we did not respond.” Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe led SFU with a game-high 22 points. Guard Kia Van Laare of New Westminster played 11 minutes and scored two points.

{

The Royals had 10 wins, three draws and one loss, which came in the final game of the season when first place was already clinched. “Our chemistry is pretty much where we need to be,” said Sandhu. “I feel that after winning provincials the team gelled, we’re confident of where we’re at. I think we’ve got a strong chance.” The Royals are seeded third at the nationals which are being held at Town Centre Park’ s Cunnings Field. Their first game will be against the defending champion Northern Alberta Institute of Technology Ooks on Wednesday, Nov. 7, 3 p.m., who lost the Alberta championship to Southern Alberta Institute of Technology Trojans, the tournament’s top seed. If Douglas wins they could be facing the Mariners in the semifinals. VIU battles second seeded Holland Hurricane of the Atlantic conference (5:30 p.m.). SAIT will play the Seneca College Sting (Ontario) at 10 a.m., while Ontario’s Humber College Hawks battle Collége François-Xavier Garneau of Quebec at 12:30 p.m.

Cornish has rushed for 1,388 yards heading CORNISH into the Stamps’ final game of the season against the Edmonton Eskimos on Friday. He needs 49 yards to match the mark for the most rushing yards by a Canadian set by former Eskimo Normie Kwong in 1956.

Downsizers not always looking for small spaces

Living outside of the box When you’re considering downsizing, the thought of living in a small apartment may turn you off of the idea. But recently developments like Waterstone in Langley have offered larger condominium homes for sale, and baby boomers are flocking to them. “They want the floorplan to feel like a single-family house,” says Scott Brown, senior vice-president for residential and commercial marketing services at Colliers International. “Baby boomers have difficulty seeing anything under 1,000 square feet as large enough.” But it’s more than larger floorplans that attract downsizers. “They want the things that you would

typically see in a house,” Brown says. Among those things are amenities such as a fitness centre and pool. Location is also a big draw. “They always say ‘go west young man’ but in this case it’s ‘go east baby boomer!’” Brown laughs, saying that many downsizers leave their home in a pricier area and move east into a more inexpensive neighbourhood. “They don’t want to lose their social circle,” Brown says, “but they are looking for something a little more affordable. ... They will often move closer to their kids, who can’t usually afford a single-family home when they’re starting out.”

Situated in the rapidly growing community of Burke Mountain, homeowners (and coach home tenants!) will have beautiful views over Coquitlam and the surrounding area. Shops, restaurants and plenty of outdoor activities are located nearby, while an elementary school is literally moments away. “This is such a family-friendly neighbourhood,” says Calahan. “The infrastructure is in place. These

homes are truly nestled in a mature neighbourhood.” Morningstar has opened preregistration for Somerton, and Calahan says that they’ve already had over 200 people inquire about the development. “This type of home is really in demand,” she says. “These are homes that everyone will love.” Homes will start in the upper$600,000s. For more information, visit www.mstarhomes.com.

‘Really the right product at the right time’

Morningstar brings coach homes to Coquitlam By Kerry Vital

Morningstar Homes is introducing a new type of single-family home to Coquitlam with its newest project, Somerton. Bringing an added coach home to their always-gorgeous floorplans, Morningstar is offering a degree of livability and affordability that is unique to the area. “Coquitlam has never done this before,” says Deborah Calahan, VicePresident of Sales and Marketing for Morningstar. “This is really the right product at the right time.” With 34 homes in the development, 21 of which will have coach homes (the others will have the option for a legal suite in the finished basement), Morningstar is building on its legacy for amazing homes. “We have the right recipe for what we do,” says Calahan. “We start from a point of what we do best, which is meeting the needs of our customers.” The homes range in size from 3,017 to over 3,100 square feet. However, Somerton’s new plans include a few extra touches that set them apart. For example, the Ellsworth plan now includes vaulted ceilings on the second floor and a semi-wall with a linear fireplace that is open on either side, so you can enjoy it from your formal dining room or your living room area. Morningstar is showcasing many of its usual amazing features here, including a seamless glass shower in the ensuite bathroom and a huge tub for relaxing after a long day. The kitchen breakfast bar is perfect for entertaining, and an extra nook that can be used as office or study space or room for children to play while you cook is a masterstroke of convenience. But it’s the coach homes that are the fantastic part of Somerton. They are located behind the homes themselves, above a double-car garage. With 512 square feet of living space, they feature a bedroom, bathroom, and open-plan layout in the living areas with a vaulted ceiling. The huge picture window in the living area lets the light pour in and makes the home feel spacious. The kitchen has rough-ins for future appliances while the bathroom is roughed-in for a stackable washer/ dryer, making the coach home a complete living space! “This space offers unlimited possibilies,” says Calahan. “It can be everything from a nanny suite to an artist studio to a man cave. Kids that

won’t leave home or older parents that need to be close – it offers the purchaser options never before available in Coquitlam. It can also be a straight mortgage helper. There is so much potential here.” In fact, Calahan sees buyers being able to get at least $800 a month for renting out the coach home. That can go a long way towards helping with a mortgage payment. “It’s really special,” says Calahan. “Giving buyers a rental opportunity that is private and separate from their home is very attractive and leaves the basement as even more space for the purchaser to enjoy.”

This space has unlimited possibilities,” says Deborah Calahan, vice-president of sales and marketing for Morningstar Homes.

The homes at Morningstar’s Somerton will include coach homes for the first time, along with the company’s usual beautiful features such as spacious floorplans and gourmet-worthy kitchens.
