The owl and the firefighters An owl rescued recently by Coquitlam firefighters after it was spotted up a tree, tangled in fishing line.

Coquitlam firefighters have rescued people from burning buildings and freed drivers from wrecked cars. Now, they can add another rescue to their long list: an owl. Wrapped in fishing line. Stuck in a tree. Being harassed by crows. Alerted to the bird’s predicament by city staff and Coquitlam Coun. Mae Reid — it was stuck in a tree outside city hall — they used a ladder truck to bring it to safety. Several crows were harassing the injured animal, which was stuck about 50 to 60 feet off the ground. A firefighter bundled the owl in a towel and

placed it in a box, which was given to Coun. Reid, who drove it to the Wildlife Rescue Association of BC’s care centre in Burnaby. The fishing line was wrapped around the bird’s body, leaving it unable to fly and vulnerable to attack. The owl lost a few feathers on its left wing due to the entanglement and had a cut on its right wing. But on Monday, Linda Bakker, the association’s leader of wildlife rehabilitation, said the animal was feeling much better. see OWL IS OK, page 4

Share wants info, not politics, to fight poverty THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The Tri-Cities’ largest social service agency is looking to the community it serves to help it tackle child poverty. Share Family and Community Services has launched an online survey and is asking people to identify their top five priorities with the goal of getting community support for a few of them. CEO Martin Wyant said Share has adopted a “roll up your sleeves” approach because other agencies are already tackling policy issues around child poverty and he doesn’t want to see the problem

Man tries to grab girl in PoCo Detailed description given to cops By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Mounties are searching for a middle-aged man after he allegedly tried to grab an 11-yearold girl Sunday afternoon in Citadel Heights.

The girl was out walking the dog at about 4:30 p.m. Sunday in the Port Coquitlam subdivision when she noticed a white cargo van approaching. The driver stopped, got out and started walking towards her. “Throughout this time, he was staring at her, which is really creepy, then he started running

at her and she turned around and started running,” said Cpl. Jamie Chung. “He attempted to grab her but she got away.” The girl didn’t stop running until she got home and the suspect quickly fled, according to police. “This is a frightening experience for anyone, especially someone who is

11 years old,” said Chung. “She did everything right by running away in the opposite direction. She was also very observant despite [the fact] it was getting dark outside at the time.” The suspect is described as a Caucasian man in his late 30s, 5’11” tall and weighing 170 lb.; he has short, brown

hair and blue eyes, and a scar above his right eye, a black lip ring on his lower lip and possibly a black tattoo on his left neck area. He was wearing a black American Eagle hoodie with the logo across the front chest area, black pants and black skater-style shoes. see COPS SEEKING, page 8

Let us all take the time to remember those that gave their lives for our independence

“Why wear a poppy” by Don Crawford

“Please wear a poppy,” the lady said, And held one forth, but I shook my head. Then I stopped and watched as she offered them there, and her face was old and lined with care; But beneath the scars the years had made There remained a smile that refused to fade. A boy came whistling down the street, Bouncing along on care-free feet. His smile was full of joy and fun, “Lady,” said he, “may I have one?” When she’d pinned it on, he turned to say; “Why do we wear a poppy today?” The lady smiled in her wistful way And answered: “This is Remembrance Day. And the poppy there is a symbol for The gallant men who died in war. And because they did, you and I are free That’s why we wear a poppy, you see. I had a boy about your size, With golden hair and big blue eyes. He loved to play and jump and shout, Free as a bird, he would race about. As the years went by, he learned and grew, And became a man - as you will, too. He was fine and strong, with a boyish smile, But he’d seemed with us such a little while When war broke out and he went away. I still remember his face that day. When he smiled at me and said, “Goodbye, I’ll be back soon, Mum, please don’t cry.” But the war went on and he had to stay, And all I could do was wait and pray. His letters told of the awful fight (I can see it still in my dreams at night), With the tanks and guns and cruel barbed wire, And the mines and bullets, the bombs and fire.

Till at last, at last, the war was won And that’s why we wear a poppy, son.” The small boy turned as if to go, Then said, “Thanks, lady. I’m glad to know. That sure did sound like an awful fight But your son - did he come back all right?” A tear rolled down each faded cheek; She shook her head, but didn’t speak I slunk away in a sort of shame, And if you were me, you’d have done the same. For our thanks, in giving, if oft delayed, Though our freedom was bought and thousands paid! And so, when we see a poppy worn, Let us reflect on the burden borne By those who gave their very all When asked to answer their country’s call That we at home in peace might live. Then wear a poppy! Remember - and Give!

Teacher asks kids to redefine ‘normal’ behaviour By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News

W

hile the world is expressing shock and surprise over the idea that young people are sharing mean messages and provocative images with one another online, a high school class in Coquitlam is plunging even deeper into the dark side of human nature. Dr. Charles Best teacher Ken Ipe, who rocks his speaking podium when he gets excited by his topic, is encouraging his students to examine why it is that racial slurs and homophobic insults are seemingly such an entrenched part of the culture and what causes otherwise educated and sane individuals to not just bully one another, but kill entire races of people. “Come on, what would you rather be? What’s popular?”he begins as he cajoles his Social Justice 12 students into a discussion about cultural stereotypes and asks them to state what country they would like to be from if they weren’t Canadian. The class of mostly Grade 12 students is slow to warm to the topic.They sense his drift and don’t want to be seen as racist but, as each student takes a turn, it appears some cultures are considered better than others. Being Jamaican, Japanese, Russian, Italian, Australian and British would be cool because of the accents or the food, the students say, but no one says First Nations, an omission Ipe takes care to point out as he introduces his next unit on native residential schools and their impact on generations of First Nations’ kids. “Deep down, we’re all intolerant to some respect,”Ipe tells the students, and even he admits to being raised in a family

Above, Social Justice 12 teacher Ken Ipe goes over current events issues with his students at Dr. Charles Best. The article is about a 14-year-old Pakistani girl Malala Yousufzai, who was shot in the face for promoting girls’ education. Top right, Grade 12 student Kia Mansoor took the Social Justice course last year and said it made her more aware of global issues.

IN QUOTES

“It’s not our good deeds, it’s our brutal indifference that defines us as humans.” Ken Ipe, Social Justice 12 teacher where light skin confers respect and authority. “The lighter the skin, the better,”he says, talking about the prejudices his own South Asian family arrived in Canada with 40 years ago. Growing up in Surrey, Ipe said he suffered from racist comments and tells his students that negative stereotypes are everywhere and not easy to guard against — a good lesson and a timely one in this era of instantaneous judgement and vitriolic commentary via the internet. It has been six years since the Social Justice 12 course was developed to settle a human rights complaint launched against the province by a married gay couple who claimed the school cur-

riculum discriminated against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people by failing to include information about them in programming. Initially controversial — Abbotsford school district almost pulled the course after parents’ complained about its content — but Social Justice 12 has gained wider acceptance over the years. Other schools in the district, including Port Coquitlam’s Riverside secondary (a public school) and Archbishop Carney regional secondary (a private, Catholic school), offer it, too, and Ipe teaches the curriculum to other educators. “If you’re a good history teacher, you know it’s important,”he says.“I tell my students,‘I don’t

have a lot of faith and hope in the species but I have hope in you.’” When he first piloted the course at Best, there weren’t enough students to fill a classroom; now, he has three classes of 30 students studying women’s, First Nations and LGBT issues, globalism and genocide, and there is a waiting list of students wishing to study this alternate view of history, in which a light is shone on some of the darker moments. For example, students are encouraged to create a campaign to highlight social injustice. Some projects students have researched and conducted include petitioning the federal government to toughen laws against sex buyers and pimps; instituting a campaign to protect youth from sexual exploitation; and raising awareness about little-known conflicts that are devastating entire populations through war, sexual violence, disease

A N T I - AG I N G

and poverty, such as the troubles facing the people of the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. Ipe says the goal of his course is not just to educate students about these social issues but to encourage them to take action against injustice whenever or wherever they see it.“It’s not our good deeds, it’s our brutal indifference that defines us as humans. I challenge them to ‘not be normal.’” While many adult commentators wondered why young people stood by as Port Coquitlam teen Amanda Todd was bullied — later committing suicide — few of them are willing to admit, as Ipe does, that adults are just as likely to be bystanders when atrocities happen. The persecution and killing of six million Jews during the Holocaust is a case in point and Ipe shares this lesson in both his English and Social Justice 12 classes.The students read books written by survivors and are

encouraged to empathize with the victims and talk about what they would do, or not do, in the same circumstances.Two years ago, Ipe took a class to visit the Auschwitz death camp museum in Poland and, today (Wednesday), the lesson will be further underscored when a survivor speaks about his experiences at the Holocaust Symposium organized by Ipe in partnership with theVancouver Holocaust Education Centre (see sidebar). Although the topics of genocide and exploitation can be painful to discuss, the students relish the opportunity to have their eyes opened by Ipe through the Social Justice course. “It was constantly on my mind,”Grade 12 student Kia Mansoor said of the course, which had her telling her friends not to buy certain items because it could lead to the exploitation of Somalians or who now looks at media differently after studying

the pornography unit. “When you see something [in the media], you don’t know the whole story,”said Mansoor, who plans to take political science in university. She’s now more skeptical and less trusting — but more knowledgeable about the world, she says. Student Andrea Ceron shares a similar story.“I needed to take this course to prepare myself before I get out in the real world,” she said.“I would tell people to stay informed. People’s eyes need to be opened.” For these students, Social Justice 12 is the course that framed the rest of their learning, their eyes, now opened, see things that most people will gloss over out of discomfort or disinterest. It’s normal to stand by and watch when targeted groups of people are made to suffer but for some of Ipe’s Social Justice students, taking action is the new normal. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Parking and transit pondered By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News

A number of policy changes are happening at Coquitlam city hall to keep pace with the development boom tied to Evergreen Line construction. Monday, council gave first reading to a zoning amendment bylaw that, if adopted, would tighten up parking at new apartments and townhomes around the rapid transit line, which is to open in 2016. Under the plan that city staff recommended in June, developers would only have to supply 1.35 parking stalls for twobedroom units — a drop of 10% from the current 1.5stall requirement; parking for one-bedroom suites would stay at one stall. The move is in response to the Metro Vancouver Apartment Parking Study, which shows there’s about a 10% oversupply of residential parking near transit hubs. The proposed bylaw also allows developers to cut the number of parking stalls by another 5% if they offer residents of their new buildings alternative transportation incentives, such as transit passes and cycling facilities. And for developers wanting even less onsite parking, they can pay the

city $20,000 per spot not provided — a sum both Mayor Richard Stewart and Coun. Terry O’Neill contended is too high. That cash would go into a city account to fund new public parking and “multimodal improvements” around the stations. In City Centre, where Evergreen will terminate and highrise building is brisk, that program could potentially generate up to $20 million for Coquitlam over 10 years. Future parking around Evergreen is a hot topic for councillors, with many fearing nearby streets will be clogged given the lack of adequate bus service in the Tri-Cities. Stewart said the city

DCC HIKE?

Meanwhile, builders of apartments in Coquitlam may be paying 15% more for development cost charges (DCC) under a new policy. This week, city council gave three readings to a bylaw that would see DCC rates rise from $89 to $103 per square metre for new apartment blocks, and $17,971 to $19,181 for single-family units — up 6.7%. DCC rates for single-family parcels, townhomes, commercial, industrial and institutional properties would drop a bit. The proposed rate for apartments is based on fu-

Owl is OK “Thanks to the quick thinking and compassion of everyone involved, this barred owl was saved before any permanent damage was done,” she said. “If it had been left to fend for itself, its wound could have become infected and its long-term chances of survival would be slim without access to food or water. “We are very happy to report that the owl is recovering well from the ordeal,” Bakker said, adding that the animal was expected to be released within the next week. Bakker also reminded fishers to dispose of their fishing line carefully as it can be lethal to wildlife. Coquitlam city hall is close to Lafarge Lake, a popular spot with anglers.

needs to strike a balance with parking at new apartments and townhomes around Evergreen: The city doesn’t want on-street parking spillover for residents nor does it want to create too many onsite spaces. The proposed parking regulations around Evergreen are one part of a sweep of initiatives to get ready for the rapid transit line. Next year, council will consider expanding City Centre on-street pay parking while staff will review the use of public parking lots in that area and look at shared parking strategies with developers and commercial businesses.

A l s o at M o n d ay ’ s council-in-committee, city staff suggested the water rate for developers building highrises change to allow for longer construction times. Bill Susak, Coquitlam’s general manager of engineering and public works, said developers have been asking the municipality to extend the utility “grace period” to a year — rather than six months — due to the length of building the towers. That topic is expected to be discussed by council later this month. jwarren@tricitynews.com

More complex care beds planned in Fraser Health BlaCk PReSS

Fraser Health is seeking private partners to supply more than 400 new residential complex care and mental health beds in the Tri-Cities, Surrey and White Rock to house challenging elderly patients who can otherwise congest local hospitals. More than half of the new beds — 216 — are earmarked for the TriCities while 95 are to be added in Surrey north of 40 Avenue and the remaining 92 would go to south Surrey/White Rock, although funding for that block of beds won’t be available until spring of 2016. Most of the new beds are to open in 2015. Residential complex care beds are for higher risk patients who need 24-hour professional care for severe behavioural or cognitive problems, who can’t be

Fraser Health spokesperson Tasleem Juma said the decision reflects growth patterns in the region, particularly in the number of seniors, and more beds are needed so those patients don’t add to acute care congestion in hospitals. The new beds are expected to cost Fraser Health $25 to $30 million a year in annual funding. The health region currently has 7,700 residential care beds, 6,000 of which are contracted through private providers at a cost of $330 million per year. Another 24 mental health beds are also promised in the Tri-Cities for adults over 19 with serious and persistent mental illness who may also have addictions. Coast Mental Health executive director Darrell Burnham said the new beds will go a long way to filling a serious gap in mental health care in the region for people struggling with

“The issues we are seeing are playing out locally and children and families are affected.” Pointing to a 59% jump in food bank use in since 2006/’07 (see sidebar), Wyant says something is going on beneath the surface in this relatively affluent region. He suspects the high cost of housing is partly to blame for the difficulties some families face, and the fact that the majority of jobs are in the retail and service sector, which are relatively low-paying compared to manufacturing blue-collar jobs. “It’s a struggle,” he said, “It’s not blaming anybody, it’s right in front of us and we’ve got to acknowledge it.” The survey — available through www. sharesociety.ca — lists 25 areas that could be addressed to reduce child poverty. Wyant said the list was compiled from suggestions made at a forum last spring at Douglas College that was attended by 80 people from all walks of life, including people experiencing poverty and representatives from social service agencies and business. The topics range from making transit free or low-cost for people who need it to providing after-school supports and school breakfast and lunch programs for children, to establishing rent banks and programs to boost the economy and encourage businesses to mentor youth. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

“It’s a struggle. It’s not blaming anybody. It’s right in front of us and we’ve got to acknowledge it.” Martin Wyant, share

At the same time Share is looking to reduce child poverty in the Tri-Cities, a group of business leaders, social service agencies, educators and health representatives is embarking on a larger community action project to identify needs and gaps, conduct public forums and set priorities for the region. Richard Rainey, Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce past president, said economic and demographic data collected for the region over the summer shows there are challenges as well as opportunities to improving the quality of life in the region. With the Evergreen Line, and the future of Riverview and Coquitlam’s waterfront under discussion, Rainey said it’s an ideal time to make a Tri-City wide community plan. One issue the data raised, he said, is the fact that the Tri-Cities is largely a bedroom community with 79% of workers commuting outside the region for jobs. “It doesn’t have to be that way. We have everything we need to live and work here at our doorstep,”Rainey said, adding that he hopes the business community will take a leading role in developing the community plan.

• Lady Lily, 76 years old, came to this clinic complaining of ten years of Migraine headaches. She tried to get help from her family doctor and was given a medication for two pills a day and now had taken a total of ten pills. Acupuncture treatment was done on her over five visits and now her symptoms are gone and she feels no more migraine headaches. • Mr. Daniel, an eighty one year old gentleman, who is living in Coquitlam was suffering from an enlarged prostate gland. This is a general phenomenon with older men. He suffers from frequent visits to the bathroom, mostly at night, sometimes up to ten times a night. After three visits to this clinic together with Chinese herbal medicine, he felt the symptom had gone and he doesn’t have the urgency to visit the bathroom as often. • P. Chew, 88 years old, was having Sciatica. He could walk, stand up and sleep alright, but couldn’t sit. If he did - the unbearable pain would almost paralyze him. He was given drugs, but after taking them a few times he decided to stop & come to me. Now he is free from the problem & lives happily. BC MEDICAL COVERAGE AVAILABLE

Busts, seizures Home invasion Coquitlam Current A Port Moody man could be facing charges for drug trafficking and firearm offences after he was stopped on Klahanie Drive. According to PoMo Police Department, on the evening of Oct. 23, a PMPD officer stopped a white Ford Explorer outside 300 Klahanie Dr. The 33-year-old driver was later arrested for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking. Police searched the vehicle and found about 27 grams of cocaine and more than $4,000 in cash. The next day, PoMo cops executed a search warrant at the man’s apartment in Klahanie, where they found more drugs and two loaded handguns. The accused is well known to police around the Lower Mainland and has a history of violence and drug possession. Port Moody Police made another arrest on Oct. 23, this time in the 700-block of Dogwood Street in Coquitlam. An officer on patrol in the area, which is near the Moody border, stopped the vehicle and arrested the 36-year-old Coquitlam resident, who is also known to police in the Tri-Cities, for drug possession. A search of the vehicle resulted in seizure of more than nine grams of marijuana and about two grams of methamphetamine. The man, who was breaching a recognizance at the time, was an unlicensed driver and a vehicle impound candidate. Further investigation revealed the vehicle and licence plate on it were both stolen, and a charge of possession of stolen property was added. Officers later found the man and a female associate had used fake names and identification while signing their rental lease. On Nov. 1, officers executed a search warrant at their Dogwood Street home and found numerous stolen identification documents and stolen property; additional stolen items were also found in the garage.

By Sarah Payne The Tri-CiTy News

An early-morning home invasion on Monday left a Port Coquitlam resident with minor injuries. Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said at about 4:15 a.m., a number of suspects forced their way into the home, on Coast Meridian Road near Chelsea Avenue, and got away with an undisclosed number of items.

The victim is not known to police and there did not appear to be any association to drugs or other illegal activities, such as a marijuana grow operation. Forensic identification officers combed through the house and police are continuing their investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2012-31079, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477.

Cops seeking white van continued from front page He was driving a late 1990s white Ford cargo van with tinted front windows. The rear and back windows were covered with white paint and the van has some rusty spots above the tires. It also has a front licence plate that is partially painted over. Chung said it’s unusual, particularly for younger children, to provide such a

detailed description. Police are investigating and hope to provide an artist’s sketch of the suspect shortly. Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2012-31053 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477, or visit www. solvecrime.ca. spayne@tricitynews.com

As we turn our clocks back and the fall season is in full swing, prepare for the wetter and darker months ahead so you can keep safe. Should there be any snow this up-coming winter season, these preparedness activities will also make snow incidents easier to manage.

Pedestrian Safety - Be Bright, Be Seen, Be Safe The fall and winter have darker evenings earlier, and road visiblity is reduced. Take responsibility for your safety and make sure you can be seen by drivers. ™ ™ ™ ™ ™

Wear light-coloured clothes. Place reflective tape on outerwear. Stay on lit sidewalks. Cross at lit intersections. Follow safe crossing practices even at signalized intersections. ™ Make eye contact with drivers so you’re sure they see you. ™ Also remember not to jaywalk - drivers aren’t necessarily looking for pedestrians away from crosswalks as they are focusing on the road and other drivers.

Be Prepared for High Winds ™ Cut down dead branches and dead trees on your property. ™ Secure objects that might blow away in a storm, including garbage cans and lawn furniture. ™ Be watchful of trees that have fallen. ™ Never touch hanging power lines. ™ Prepare an emergency plan and kit so you are ready in the case of a storm, other emergency, or power outage.

Clean Catch Basins to Prevent Flooding Periodically check catch basins or drains near your home or building and clear away debris such as fallen leaves (if it is safe and convenient to do so). This will help rainwater drain quickly and easily and minimize the risk of flooding. Report any of the following immediately to 604-927-3500: ™ Any suspicious substance leaking into any catch basin. ™ Any catch basin grate missing or ajar. ™ Plugged catch basins.

Cop sues lawyer over online fetish photos Be Bright, Be Seen, Be Safe! By Sarah Payne The Tri-CiTy News

The Coquitlam RCMP officer whose online fetish photos were made public is suing for breach of privacy and defamation. Cpl. James Charles Brown is suing Va n c o u v e r l a w y e r Cameron Ward, New Westminster resident Grant Wakefield and two unidentified people listed as John and Jane Doe, who are said to be known to Wakefield. In the suit, filed in BC Supreme Court last week, Brown is claiming an unspecified amount in general, special, aggravated and punitive damages for “substantial and persisting injury to the plaintiff’s reputation, injury to his pride and selfconfidence, and severe emotional distress.” The lawsuit alleges Wakefield set up false profiles to gain access to the members-only fetish website Fetlife, where he then copied photos of Brown and transcripts of online conversations. Wakefield sent the material to the media as well as Ward, constituting an unlawful breach of Brown’s privacy, according to the suit. The photos included several of Brown engaged in various “consensual acts” as well as staged images of a woman being abducted, hog-tied and

sexually assaulted that were only later found not to include Brown. What followed were at least 10 instances of defamatory expression published in the Vancouver Sun newspaper, various online blogs and via Twitter, all of which were caused by the defendants, claims Brown. The lawsuit states that in mid-July, the defendants published, or caused to be published, several Twitter messages stating or implying that Brown is corrupt, was connected to William Pickton and attended the illegal drinking establishment on the Pickton property known as “Piggy’s Palace.” At about the same time, the suit alleges, the defendants published comments in an online article that indicate Brown has used blackmail to keep his job as an RCMP officer and has hired lawyers to intimidate witnesses and silence the media. The lawsuit also claims the defamation continued with a lengthy letter sent to several media outlets in August in which the defendants, claiming to have a background working with the RCMP and CSIS, state that Brown has a violent history that includes the sexual assault of a young woman. It also says Brown has published hundreds of sexually

explicit photos online under the name “Kilted Knight,” some of which “break obscenity laws.” The letter came shortly after the RCMP executed a search warrant on Wakefield’s home, where they took a number of computers, laptops and cell phones. Ward, who has served as a lawyer for several families of the missi n g wo m e n d u r i n g the Missing Women’s Commission of Inquiry, is named in the suit for three blog posts in which Brown is said to be a sexual sadist with close ties to the Pickton family. Ward’s posts suggest the RCMP had knowledge of Pickton’s killing spree but failed to act“for fear of implicating one or more of their members in criminal activity,” due to Brown’s “lifestyle and predilections.” Information contained in the lawsuit outlines Brown’s minor role in the Pickton investigation. In July 1999, Brown contacted the Vancouver Police Department, which was then investigating the missing sex trade workers, with information that a recently arrested man said a woman told him she saw Pickton disposing of a body on his property. The civil claim contains allegations that have not been proven in court. No defence statement has yet been filed.

Pay & honour

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside

O

n Sunday, many of us will gather around cenotaphs and in city squares for solemn ceremonies paying tribute to Canada’s service men and women. We’ll hear words like “sacrifice” and “honour,” some of them uttered by politicians. But for some veterans, they’ll ring hollow. In 2006, Parliament unanimously passed the New Veterans Charter, which changed the way injured soldiers are compensated. Instead of a lifetime pension, indexed to inflation, veterans injured after that year, or who had their injury diagnosed since then, would get a lump sump settlement. Veterans Affairs champions the new system as“a more complete approach to helping our men and women injured in the line of duty,”offering them“real hope.” But some injured veterans, like Port Moody’s Kevin Berry, say otherwise. They say Canadian soldiers injured in Afghanistan, and those suffering the lingering mental and emotional effects of their tour, are getting substantially less support than they would have received with the former indexed pension. Many are having difficulty reintegrating into civilian life. A study by Queen’s University last year concluded most disabled soldiers will receive only two-thirds the compensation under the New Veterans Charter than they would have received from the old Pension Act. Recently, Canada’s auditor-general criticized the Canadian Forces and Veterans Affairs for their shoddy treatment of injured veterans, saying the system to get them help is “complex, lengthy and challenging to navigate.” Even in death, the indignities continue. A program that is supposed to contribute just over $3,600 to the funeral costs for destitute ex-soldiers has rejected more than two-thirds of funding requests since 2006. Even when approved, that money is still less than some social services departments will pay towards the burial of the homeless. It’s one thing for Canada’s politicians to honour our veterans. It’s another to treat them with honour. – The Burnaby NewsLeader (Black Press)

The real smart meter – spymeter? – manipulation BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA wo very different scenes unfolded at opposite ends of the province last week. In the remote northwest corner of B.C., the first power line towers started going up to connect Highway 37 communities to the BC Hydro grid. The Nisga’a, Tahltan and other aboriginal communities will soon have reliable power as well as much-needed training and jobs during clearing and construction. Meanwhile, down on the Gulf Islands, the most hysterical, dishonest campaign against smart meters I’ve heard of so far went into high gear. I’ve obtained a mass email from the head anti-smart meter organizer on Salt Spring Island that shows the mentality at work here. (Corix is the BC Hydro contractor that has installed more than a million meters and has approached the Gulf Islands with trepidation,

They managed to stop 12% of the installations. Coincidentally, Anderson has been doing a brisk business selling $35 meter locks to gullible Salt Spring Islanders in recent months. They don’t work and you’re not allowed to lock BC Hydro property anyway. Others have been sold official-looking“no smart meter” signs that don’t identify the customer, so they don’t work either. As for the term“spymeter,”I’ve reported on the weird theories spread by Bill Vander Zalm in a video interview where he claims smart meters are part of a global surveillance system

PoCo’s rink rocks The Editor, Port Coquitlam has the best rink — bar none. Our sons have played hockey in PoCo for 10 years and I think the city should be recognized for the great job it does with staff, maintenance and operation of the arena and recreation complex. Some arenas are

cold and uncomfortable places to watch hockey but PoCo sets the bar high. The staff are always helpful, friendly and knowledgeable, and the facility is always clean and well managed. The concession serves pretty good food and the coffee is pretty decent for an arena.

This public arena is available to everyone in our community for a reasonable price and we are fortunate to have such a great facility. Good job to the city of PoCo, and especially to the hard-working and always pleasant staff. Jim Boon, Port Coquitlam

Robinson will run for NDP Selina Robinson will fly the flag for the NDP in the riding of CoquitlamMaillardville in the next provincial election after being acclaimed by the riding association this week. A second-term city councillor who was re-elected less than a year ago, she was the only person to submit nomination papers in the seven weeks since sitting NDP MLA Diane Thorne announced her retirement in September. “I am excited to be the NDP candidate for CoquitlamMaillardville constituency,” Robinson stated in a press release. Robinson, who was first elected to Coquitlam city council in 2008 and topped the polls in November 2011 with 9,635 votes, said she doesn’t plan on vacating her civic seat “until we’re into an election mode where I feel I might not be able to do justice to my job. It does make sense to step down at some point and take an unpaid leave so I can focus on getting elected.” If she wins the seat, the city will have to hold a byelection. The last Coquitlam by e l e c t i o n c o s t Coquitlam taxpayers about $140,000. The CoquitlamMaillardville constituency association will be confirming Robinson’s nomin a t i o n S u n d a y, Nov. 25 at the Royal Canadian Legion, 1025 Ridgeway Ave., Coquitlam.

Coach homes provide housing options for families in Coq. By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News

It may be snug living for a family of four but Coquitlam’s first coach homes are ideal for the “sandwich generation” looking for a place to accommodate their elderly parents or grown children. So says Deborah Calahan, vice-president of sales and marketing for Morningstar Homes, a Coquitlam builder that last week unveiled a 521-sq. ft., one-bedroom showhome on one of its Burke Mountain singlefamily lots. The coach homes — also called laneway or carriage homes — are part of Morningstar’s Somerton subdivision, located north of Leigh elementary school on Roxton Avenue, that,

when finished, will have 34 three-storey detached houses with 21 abovethe-garage living spaces for singles or couples. Costing about $100,000 on top of the purchase price, the compact homes could also be used as a mortgage helper for the property owner — renting out as much as $1,200 a month, Calahan suggested — or they could be used as an artist’s studio. “There’s so much potential with coach homes,” Calahan said during a sneak peek last Thursday for media and realtors. “And we really went all out with the design to make sure they are very liveable and attractive for the tenant.” Coach homes may be gaining popularity in bigger cities such as

Vancouver, where affordable living is at a premium, but they’re a relatively new concept for the Tri-Cities, which has some room to grow. In Coquitlam, coach homes are permitted in designated Neighbourhood Attached Residential zones such as southwest Coquitlam; as well, they form part of the city’s Housing Choices program, an initiative adopted last year by council to densify larger lots in southwest Coquitlam and Burquitlam with innovative building styles such as row homes, triplexes and fourplexes. Still, Jim McIntyre, Coquitlam’s general manager of planning and development, said coach homes can be expensive to build and there hasn’t been much

uptake due to hefty construction and servicing costs. “People look at how much it is to run a water and sewer line through their backyard to hook up to a coach home — as well as building it — and realize sometimes it’s probably cheaper to add a basement suite to their house,” he said. Meanwhile, this month, two Housing Choices bids are expected to go to public hearing: Architype Design was granted first reading in October to rezone 910 Delestre Ave. for a split fourplex; it also got a preliminary nod from council for another fourplex proposal at 279 Tenby St., at the end of a cul-de-sac near the Trans Canada Highway. jwarren@tricitynews.com

erness Miss Heliotrope, in a carriage heading into an unknown future with Maria’s cousin.The story includes secrets, feuds, lost love, colourful characters, magical animals and a mystery to be solved. Both of these books had an element of magic that I still look for when reading for comfort. The Princess Bride by William Goldman is a book that has it all: magic, mystery, menace and true love. Buttercup and Westley find each other, lose each other and then, after many adventures, find each other once more, only to be separated to go through more fantastic adventures on their path to true love.This is pure escapist fantasy and appeals to kids of all ages. Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen is set in Bascom, a small town in North Carolina, and tells the story of sisters Claire and Sydney Waverley, who use their family inheritance to make the

most of their natural gifts and carve out a home for themselves.These inheritances include not only the family home, which has an apple tree bearing fruit with magical properties, but also an ability to affect the lives of people through their own unique talents. Claire, as a caterer, can affect people’s feelings with her food and Sydney has the knack of creating just the right hairstyle for each of her clients. Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman is also about sisters. Gillian and Sally Owens use magic to bring order into their lives. Having been brought up by eccentric aunts in the scariest house in town, Gillian tries for normalcy by striving for an ordinary life, getting married and having two children. Sister Gillian runs away. Years later, Gillian is back and in need of help from her sister. Learning to work together and

allowing magic back into their lives brings together three generations of Owens women as a family. The Lace Reader by Brunonia Barry had me intrigued from the first page but I was still surprised at the end of this novel about the death of an aunt.The narrator declares in her opening paragraph that she lies all the time and that she is a crazy woman — this, she says is true.Throughout this book, it becomes necessary to remember these two statements as you try to sort out the mystery of three generations of Whitney women. Great aunt Eva, mother May and Towner all have secrets.The unraveling of these secrets keeps you intrigued right up to the unexpected conclusion.

o you remember the first book that turned you on to reading? What was the second one? While in your teens what did you love to read? Think about your first real adult book. Do you have a comfort book or author that you return to over and over again? Working in a library and being surrounded by many new and undiscovered authors is a treat for me. But a greater treat comes from finding old friends. Some of these include C. S. Lewis and Elizabeth Goudge, both authors from my childhood. At seven, I started in a new and, for me, much larger school.This experience changed from very intimidating to comforting as soon as my teacher started reading to the class. He read Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and I was hooked.The rest of the Narnia series followed. Unable to get enough stories meant finding and using the library.This was the beginning of a lifelong love affair with books, especially fantasy novels. Another favourite, The Little White Horse by Goudge, published in 1946, was made into a movie, The Secret of Moonacre, in 2008.This story starts with Maria, an orphan, and her gov-

Each November, Poppies blossom on the lapels and collars of over half of Canada’s entire population. Since 1921, the Poppy has stood as a symbol of Remembrance, our visual pledge to never forget all those Canadians who have fallen in war and military operations. The Poppy also stands internationally as a “symbol of collective reminiscence”, as other countries have also adopted its image to honour those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. This significance of the Poppy can be traced to international origins. The association of the Poppy to those who had been killed in war has existed since the Napoleonic Wars in the 19th century, over 110 years before being adopted in Canada. There exists a record from that time of how thickly Poppies grew over the graves of soldiers in the area of Flanders, France. This early connection between the Poppy and battlefield deaths described how fields that were barren before

the battles exploded with the blood-red flowers after the fighting ended. Just prior to the First World War, few Poppies grew in Flanders. During the tremendous bombardments of that war, the chalk soils became rich in lime from rubble, allowing “popaver rhoes” to thrive. When the war ended, the lime was quickly absorbed and the Poppy began to disappear again. The person who was responsible more than any other for the adoption of the Poppy as a symbol of Remembrance in Canada and the Commonwealth was Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, a Canadian Medical Officer during the First World War.

Three CEOs help single moms Port Coquitlam single moms will now have some extra support thanks to a unique partnership between three B.C. credit unions and their three female CEOs. Coast Capital Savings, Vancity and First West Credit Union funded an environmental scan last spring that revealed many communities, including PoCo, lacked supports for single moms. Over the summer, the financial institutions

pledged $50,000 each in annual funding to fund six new single mothers’ support groups in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. The scan found a shortage of resources for the 12% of families in the Tri-Cities headed by women, particularly in Port Coquitlam, where existing resources focus on addressing domestic violence or cater to families with young children. The new program will

run out of the Tri-Cities East Neighbourhood Centre, at 2062 Manning Ave. on Saturdays between 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. and will be led by a trained facilitator. Participating moms will get child care support while they attend as well as help to gain employment, go back to school, find safe and affordable housing and information on child care, legal education and other community sup-

port. The YWCA’s Janice Lee will be the group coordinator. “I am inspired by the generosity of the three credit unions and the exceptional women who lead them — Tracy Redies, Tamara Vrooman and Launi Skinner,” stated Janet Austin, CEO of YWCA Metro Vancouver, in a press release. “They show us the true meaning of cooperation and they demonstrate that it is possible

for competitors to collaborate to drive positive social change. With their support, the YWCA can create the conditions for many single mothers to build better futures for themselves and their children. ” For more information on the Single Mothers’ Support Services program and local group details, visit: www.ywcavan.org/singlemothers or phone 604-895-5849. newsroom@tricitynews.com

Footlight gives young actors a leg up By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy NeWs

When Footlight Theatre Company set out its five-year plan for success, director and choreographer Lalainia Lindbjerg Strelau pushed for not only bigger shows but better emerging talent to showcase. Then, it h a d moved its productions to the Michael J. Fox Theatre, aiming to bring well-loved musicals to the stage such as Joseph and the Amazing Te c h n i c o l o r Dreamcoat and The Wizard of Oz. Its formula proved right and now, audiencegoers know to expect high-quality performances from Fo o t l i g h t e a c h N ove m b e r, s h e said. “ We a r e r e a l l y i m p rov i n g ourselves as a company as well as the name of the company every year,” said Lindbjerg Strelau, a Coquitlam resident. “And we have continued to raise the bar with our talent.” For its 46th season, Footlight chose Grease!, a story t h at L i n d b j e r g Strelau said is known around the world and needs no interpretation. In fact, the company was in awe when it came to open audition calls earlier this year: about 200 actors — most of them agebetween 18 and 23

Shari Pratt in the makeshift studio she’s been working in since Aug. 23 at the Port Moody Arts Centre. Pratt is the first visual artist in residence for the facility, and has been painting a new series called Cotton Candy Friends, based on photos submitted through her Facebook site.

A ‘Cotton Candy’ residency By Janis Warren

I

The Tri-CiTy NeWs

n the makeshift studio Shari Pratt has been working in for the past two-and-a-half months, there’s a lot of light and space — perfect for painter. There’s also plenty of activity: Not only from the car and foot traffic outside on St. John’s Street but also inside the Port Moody Arts Centre that commissioned Pratt to be its first visual artist in residence, a gig that ends Saturday. Her Cotton Candy Friends series has drawn many curious visitors since the Maple Ridge resident started the acrylic and mixed media project on Aug. 23, said PMAC gallery co-ordinator Susan Jessop during an interview last Friday. Most people — sometimes with children — stay a minimum of 15 minutes, chatting with Pratt and other PMAC staff about the painting process and watching her create; many have never seen an artist ply his or her craft live. Pratt, who has a bachelor’s of education degree from UBC, specifically tailored to art education, loves the interaction. They ask about her series, how it came about and its designs and colours. And Pratt will usually tell them something like this: Cotton Candy Friends is based on a collection of photographs submitted by Tri-City residents via social media, namely Facebook. She gathered 30 pictures — many of them after the Port Moody Festival of the Arts’ Art 4 U day at PMAC in September — and whittled her selection down to 15 for her show, which opens next week (Disclosure: this reporter’s submission of her kids was accepted

PMAC ArT shOws

Other exhibits opening on Nov. 15: • The Blackberry Artists’ Society’s Christmas Marketplace (paintings, glass, wood, paper, jewellery, textiles, photography, drawings and stone carvings in the 3D Gallery); • Maxine Wolodko’s Places I Want To Be (oil paintings in the Plum Gallery); • and Port Moody Arts Centre Society’s artworks display on 6” by 6” cradled wooden panels and ceramic works created from 6” by 6” slabs of clay (the work will be sold by a ticketed event to raise money for the society). for the exhibit). Pratt printed off the 15 portraits in black and white so she wouldn’t be influenced by the colours and could interpret the images as she wanted.  For example, a group of young men got shrunk to two subjects in leather jackets, looking at the viewer; a Golden Spike Days can can dancer was depicted in the style of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec; and sheet music (to resemble a lullaby) was placed above the picture of a father cradling his newborn girl. After spending several weeks on each painting — usually working on four or five at a time — “I really felt like I got to know the people, even though it’s not an exact representation,” Pratt said, adding, “I’m looking forward to meeting all of them when the show opens, and seeing if my instincts were right.”

Pratt said she has loved her time in the 3D Gallery at PMAC. Last year, she was an artist-in-residence in Victoria; she plans to apply for a residency next year, outside of Rome, Italy, next year to create another figurative series. Painting from snapshots — especially those from the 1920s-40s era — is her forte. “I use found photos,” Pratt said. “People learn about my work and they just send me their pictures through my Facebook site.” She currently has an exhibit at the Fort Gallery (9048 Glover Rd., Fort Langley), running until Nov. 12, portraying blank-faced military men. And in April, Pratt will open a show about sisters and the bonds women share at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts. As for the title of her PMAC residency collection, Cotton Candy Friends, Pratt said she borrowed it from Vanessa Van Petten of radicalparenting.com, who coined the phrase to mean “temporary friends” gathered online, especially by young people who reach out via social networking. In her residency proposal, Pratt noted: “A Cotton Candy friend doesn’t offer a whole lot of substance to your life so what has accumulating all of these online friends done to define our social identities? Or have we just found a new way to create imaginary friends as adults?”she questions. • The opening reception for Shari Pratt’s Cotton Candy Friends is Thursday, Nov. 15 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Port Moody Arts Centre (2425 St. John’s St.). Admission is free. The show runs until Dec. 21. The facility is open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

Grease! is the word for Footlight continued from page 22

— lined up to be part of the show, which opens on Friday. “They just blew me away at the castings,” Lindbjerg Strelau said. “Grease! is an ensemble piece and every single person cast is so strong. If you pack them together, their energy can be over- STrelAu whelming.” Footlight will have 32 actors on stage for Grease! — twice as many as seen with other companies. “One of our goals is to do very large family-friendly musicals,” she said. “When you go to see a musical at the Arts Club Theatre, it’s going to be great but you’re going to have a very limited cast because they all have to be paid. It’s expensive but that’s how those companies succeed: cutting the number of actors.” Rather, Footlight tries to highlight as many young actors as it can to give them a leg up in the industry. For Grease!, it’s only paying for one actor: Jennie Neumann (Rizzo), who is part of the actors’ union. The other actors are volunteer and “are doing it simply because they want to do Grease!” Lindbjerg Strelau said, adding, “We get people who are just on the cusp and starting their professional careers.” She cited two examples: Langley’s Kaylee Harwood, who played her first musical theatre role in Cinderella for Footlight six years ago, has since gone on to perform at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival and on Broadway in New York City; and Coquitlam’s Jennifer Gillis, 16, who was cast as the Dorothy understudy last year for The Wizard of Oz and recently returned home after a stint on CBC’s Over the Rainbow. Port Coquitlam’s Jianna Ballard, 18, said she was thrilled to be selected as Pink Lady

and beauty school drop-out, Frenchy, for Grease!, which will be her fifth Footlight credit (she also worked on Cinderella, Meet Me in St. Louis, Joseph and The Wizard of Oz). “All the Footlight shows I’ve been in have been completely different, which is great as an actor,” she said. “You learn so much, and it has certainly helped me grow as a teacher as well as a performer. Meeting new cast mates who have the same passion as you is also really fun.” • Footlight Theatre Company’s Grease! runs Nov. 9 to 24 at the Michael J. Fox Theatre in Burnaby, with Lucas Blaney as Danny Zuko, Alex Gullason as Sandy and Craig DeCarlo as Kenickie. Tickets are $19.59 through www.ticketstonight.ca.

Port Moody Film Society’s pick for November is an Australian work titled Beneath Hill 60. The 2010 award-winning movie — timed to coincide with the R e m e m b ra n c e D ay weekend — is based on real-life events about a group of civilian miners during the First World War who are commissioned to tunnel underneath German lines and plant bombs. Meanwhile, Home for Supper will precede the feature presentation; that short, produced by the Capilano University film program, is also based on a true story about two Romanian boys who try to escape enlistment during the Second World War. Director Brett Taylor and writer/producer Luc Poletto will answer questions about their piece afterwards. Admission to both shows on Nov. 9 is $5 with an annual $5 society membership. The curtain rises at 7:30 p.m. at the Inlet Theatre (100 Newport Dr.). Visit pmfilm.ca.

The best part about last Friday’s rivalry match between the Terry Fox Ravens and the Centennial Centaurs is that both team’s will get to do it all over again this weekend — but only this time, on a much bigger stage. Fox’s 33-30 win in last week’s game gives the team a 4-5 record, good enough for third place in the BC Varsity AAA football Eastern Division. That sets the stage for a post-season opening round rematch against the Centaurs, which will be fought under the dome at B.C. Place Stadium on Saturday at 8 p.m. “It is going to be one of those games where it comes down to who has the ball last,” said Centennial Centaurs coach Ryk Piche. “They line up differently. We got to stop their physicality and they have to match our speed.” If last Friday’s match is any indication of how this weekend’s game will go, then fans can expect an exciting game. Centennial scored on their first play from the scrimmage line on a 55 yard run. Terry Fox responded with a 10-play, 84-yard scoring drive that was capped off by running back Mate McleodGenest, who ran in the last yard to make it 7-6 Ravens. The game see-sawed back and forth until Mcleod-Genest managed to score three times in the third quarter to give his team a 33-22 lead. Centennial hung on to punch in one more touchdown with two and a half minutes left, but were unable to retake the lead. Mcleod-Genest finished the day with 23 rushes for 199 yards and four touchdowns. “Mate had a monster game on [offense],” said co-coach Martin McDonnell. “He ran with conviction. It was nice to have guys return.” He added that the team looked forward to seeing more players return to the lineup for this Saturday’s first postseason game. sports@tricitynews.com

A Royals super sniper gets ready for national tourney royals shoot for a national title this week in Coquitlam Grant Granger BLaCk Press

Sahil Sandhu, Pac West MVP and top scorer, will lead the Douglas College Royals into the Canadian Colleges Athletic Championship in Coquitlam next week.

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. His ability to fire accurate shots powered the Royals to a first-place finish in the Pacwest conference and then to the provincial championship this past week-

e n d . They’ll be hoping the Burnaby Central graduate will MYERS continue to be on target as they aim for a national title at the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association championship in Coquitlam next week. Sandhu kicked-in 15 goals in 12 games during the regular season to easily win the league scoring title and also be named Pacwest most valuable player. But the funny thing is, when he began the game is 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 come natural to me. I know where to go. I’m always moving, I can’t stay still.” Royals captain Dylan Myers is extremely appreciative of Sandhu’s skills and what it 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. “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, 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. 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. see TITle page 27

Ravens defy rankings with trip to FV finals 14th seeded team will play in the championship game on Thursday By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

Looking at the team rankings for the AAA high school soccer playoffs prior to the Fraser Valley tournament, one could be forgiven for not giving the Terry Fox Ravens much of a chance of going far this post-season. But on Thursday night,

the 14th seeded club will compete in the championship game against No. 1 seed Tamanawis secondary. Along the way, the Ravens defeated third seed Princess Margaret 2-0 in the opening game, the 11th seeded Sullivan Heights 7-2 in the second match and Coquitlam rivals and second seed team the Charles Best Blue Devils 3-1 on Monday night. Best led the north zone standings in the regular season with a 5-0-2 record, a division that Fox tied for second

place with the Heritage Woods Kodiaks and the Centennial Centaurs who shared records of 4-1-2. Best will play the Kodiaks on tonight (Wednesday, Nov. 7) in a consolation game at Charles Best secondary while Centennials postseason run ended on the weekend with a 3-1 loss to Enver Creek. With the Ravens’ appearance in the finals, the team is guaranteed a berth in the provincial championships.

Chelsea Reed scored the lone goal for the Port Moody Nitro in a 2-1 losing effort against the Vancouver United Football Club Devils on the weekend. The Devils jumped out to an early 1-0 first-half lead, but Reed was able to even the game with 15 minutes left. Va n c o u v e r quickly re-took the lead with a shot that Port Moody keeper Katherine Ross was initially able to save. However, the ball sprang loose and a Devils’ forward was able to burry it.

“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 re-

demption.” 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 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 jelled, we’re confident of where we’re at. I think we’ve got a strong chance.” Th e Royals are

Ruth Elizabeth Finseth passed away peacefully on October 30, 2012 in the wonderful care of the Crossroads Hospice in Port Moody. She had a lengthy struggle with lymphoma & dementia. Born Ruth Hall in September 1924 to Charles and Marie Hall of Clanwilliam, Manitoba, she moved to Vancouver in 1941 at the tender age of 17 – she attended business school, helped her aunt and uncle raise their two children and through her involvement with the Lutheran Church met her husband Mal Finseth. They married in 1949 and raised 3 sons - Greg, Rick and Kevin - mainly at their awesome family home in Maple Ridge. She is survived by her sons, her daughters-in-law Claudia & Jan and her grandchildren Eric, Sarah, Sonia and Theo. Ruth was a careful, cautious person who never wasted anything. She was generous with her family and friends. She was kind, patient and accepting of what life had to offer. She worked as a bookkeeper for many years in Maple Ridge. She was an active bowler and walker until the age of 87. And she remained active in the Lutheran Church. She lived a full, independent life right up til the end. She will be missed by her sons, her extended family and all the friends she made along the way. A memorial service in her honour will be held at King Of Life Lutheran Church 1198 Falcon Drive, Coquitlam on Saturday November 10 @ 11 am. Lunch to follow. In lieu of flowers please donate to Crossroads Hospice Society, Port Moody. Condolence may be sent to www.mapleridgefuneralchapel.ca
