Land sale is OK’d Province behind District 43’s plans By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

School District 43 is taking its first tentative steps towards a plan to sell some surplus school assets to raise funds for future capital projects and is doing so with the full support of the provincial government. On Tuesday, trustees gave unanimous approval to a plan to rezone eight lots at the outer edge of the Parkland elementary school grounds (at the corner of Poirier Street and Como Lake Avenue) in Coquitlam for housing.

TransLink vs. the audit TransLink board leery of audit’s proposed savings By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

What effect will Tuesday’s vote in Washington State to legalize and tax marijuana have in British Columbia? See article, page 17

It’s starting to look like TransLink will say thanks but no thanks to most of the suggested savings identified this fall by provincial auditors.

TransLink’s board debated the finance ministry audit findings on Oct. 24 and board chair Nancy Olewiler said this week she and other directors are reluctant to act on many of the suggestions for cutting a further $41 million from the budget. “These are recommendations, not requirements,” she said, adding the auditors are not transit experts and did

OLEWILER

not fully u n d e rstand the potential damage t o s e rvice from some of their pro-

posals. Olewiler sought to ease concerns TransLink will slash or greatly reduce bus frequency on runs where few riders are on board, adding that

some of those routes are critical to ensuring the system is usable across the region. “We run an integrated transportation service,” she said. “Just because a particular service isn’t working at full capacity doesn’t mean we eliminate it or reduce it.” The audit suggested TransLink scrap or downgrade 22 underused routes. That has heightened fears in some of

Metro Vancouver’s fastgrowing suburbs that TransLink won’t keep promises to improve transit service in underserved neighbourhoods and offer a more viable alternative to car use. “We’re building not just for current use but also future use,” Olewiler said, adding good transit can shape future development. see PROPOSED, page 8

Coquitlam Public Library director Rhiann Piprell and library board chair Jack Trumley relax in front of the “feature wall” — made to look like ripples in a river — at the new City Centre branch, which opens on Tuesday.

Outside is in at new Coquitlam library Natural and hightech features at new CPL branch By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News

The carpets have a pattern that resembles a forest canopy. The lounge wall is designed to be reminiscent of ripples on a river. And the light wood slats and stone tiles also bring an aesthetic appeal that warms the building to a comforting and relaxing environment. Such are the natural features found in Coquitlam’s new library branch, a $15.6-million facility — three times bigger than the current City Centre location — that will open next Tuesday. Architect Dave McIntyre of David Nairne and Associates, which has built and renovated many libraries in B.C., said community stakeholders were involved in the design process from the get-go: from organizing spaces to the finishes reflecting the city surroundings. “There was a very strong desire to have an aesthetically pleasing facility, with large open areas, community meeting rooms and shelving on wheels to move col-

lections easily to have even bigger spaces,” he said, adding, “The building was a vacant, dark shell when it was acquired by the city so it was quite important to add as much natural light as well.” Maurice Gravelle, Coquitlam’s general manager of strategic initiatives, said the city made few structural changes to the two-storey building (located two blocks south of the cur-

A book-sorting machine was also installed, the first in western Canada for the manufacturer; it sorts books electronically into one of five bins with the help of a magnetic sticker on the back cover. T h e c i t y eve n partnered with the Evergreen Cultural Centre to include a wall on which to hang art. Its first exhibit will have pieces from seven Coquitlam artists with diverse backgrounds “thereby celebrating a strong connection to the extensive multi-lingual and multi-cultural collection at the new library [branch],” said Astrid Heyerdahl, ECC’s visual arts manager. The wall “is an opportunity to extend the arts and culture in the city,” Coquitlam Public Library director Rhiann Piprell said during a tour Wednesday. Jamie McCarthy, president of the Friends of Coquitlam Public Library, said the 24-member society that was formed in 2003 has lobbied the city to expand the City Centre branch for a number of years to keep up with growth. The old branch was located in a utilitarian ground-floor space at city hall. “The Friends are incredibly excited about the opening of the new City Centre branch,” he said. “It’s wonderful to see the project completed… It’s also located in a really great area that is much easier for people to get to and enjoy.” As for a mandate as the society heads into its 10th year, McCarthy said the group will continue with fundraising. Proceeds from its annual quiz night went towards buying equipment for the new branch; it’s now selling calendars to purchase more materials. “The larger location will allow for more activities to take place, including a few Friends-organized events like our 10th annual quiz night and our first book sale,” McCarthy said. • The City Centre library branch (1169 Pinetree Way) will open on Tuesday, with a public grand opening celebration set for Saturday, Nov. 24 from 12:30 to 4 p.m. that will include activities for children and teens, entertainment, library tours and free refreshments.

$3M-$5M from land sale COUNCIL continued from front page

The same day, the province sent out a letter laying out the details of its Release of Assets for Economic Generation (RAEG) program to superintendents and secretary-treasurers around the province. According to the letter, the province has laid out 2013/’14 as the “preferred” timeframe for completing property sales by school boards. Net proceeds can be retained and spent in the district, the letter states, but the amount may show on the province’s books as revenue. Th e s a l e o f t h e Parkland property is expected to generate between $3 million and $5 million, and that cash could be used for projects such as the replacement of Sir Frederick Banting middle school and a new elementary school on Burke Mountain. “This is really difficult. It’s as difficult as closing schools because these lands are a community asset,” said Anmore/ Belcarra Trustee Holly Butterfield, one of the few trustees to express her doubts about the plan. Still, she voted in favour of proceeding with the land sale, noting schools are “desperately needed” on Burke Mountain. Her comments were

The Tri-Cities’ board of education is moving to sell a portion of school property at Parkland elementary school in Coquitlam after a vote Tuesday. a rare peek into the mindset of trustees who haven’t been very vocal at board meetings about the merits of selling surplus school land. Unlike school closures, which generated significant controversy a few years ago, trustees have been somewhat quiet about the necessity of selling land to raise funds for new or replacement schools. Land dealings are a topic usually discussed in camera (behind closed doors) and although parents have requested more advance notice and details about the district’s long-term view of needs and assets, the district is unable to comply. The lack of transparency was a bone of contention among Porter Street elementary school parents, whose fields were taken off the list of possible assets to be sold at a board meeting two weeks ago.

But the rolling out of the provincial RAEG program, which was first outlined in the 2012 provincial budget, according to the letter, offers some insight into the district’s thinking. As well, the district was informed earlier this fall that no money was available for capital projects for two years. After reading out parts of the letter to trustees Tuesday, SD43 secretary treasurer Rick Humphreys noted that the Parkland elementary school property disposition proposal is being undertaken with the support and encouragement, and under the timelines of the provincial government. “What the board has been looking at is complying with that requirement,”Humphreys said. The district still needs the approval of the city of Coquitlam as well as the province before it can

proceed with a rezoning change for eight lots, and the community will also need to support the plan. Currently, the property, approximately 12% of the total site, is grassed but is mostly unused as the school has a grass and an all-weather field for children to play on. Board chair Melissa Hyndes said Parkland is a good “test site” for the land disposal process because the parcel is not being used and, according to the district, developing the property for housing could improve safety and security for students because a lane would be added behind the homes. Still, the Port Moody trustee admitted the idea of selling school land is neither well understood nor accepted by all people, especially in neighbourhoods that might be affected, and the district has to move cautiously. “When you go down a path like this, there is always trepidation,” she said.“Our duty is to be fiscally responsible and look after the students in the entire district.”

Parents need to learn, and talk about, suicide A hundred people have signed up for a forum on suicide prevention in Port Coquitlam next week and one of the organizers would like to see that number rise, with more parents participating. Mike Pledge, who coordinates counselling services for School District 43, said most of those signed up to attend the Shedding Light... Sharing Hope forum at Terry Fox Theatre Nov. 14 are health care workers and practitioners, and he would like to see families take part so more people recognize the signs of potential suicide and how to prevent it. “This is the time when we worry about whether we’ve prepared them [teenagers] for life and suicide is a topic we’re all nervous about,” Pledge said. And while it’s true parents might be worried that being so open about the topic will give kids the idea, in fact, Pledge said, the opposite is true. “It would be a good thing to come along with your teenage son and daughter and have a conversation in the car on the way home,” he said. “Conversations are really at the root of this.” The more knowledge and awareness there is around the issue, Pledge said, the better prepared the community will be in dealing with it. To that end, the TriCities Community Task Force on Suicide Prevention, a group of agencies dealing with youth mental health, is putting on the forum and has also created a website of suicide information and resources that will soon be launched and adver-

Wh i l e t h e d e a t h a month ago of Port Coquitlam teenager Amanda Todd has raised awareness about the issue of young people taking their own lives, Pledge said there is no quick fix because suicide is a complex issue. When somebody is identified as at risk, community agencies and school counsellors come together to provide a network of support around that person, or try to make them aware that they have the support. In the Tri-Cities, the number of suicides each year varies, according to BC Coroners Service statistics, but in Coquitlam, the yearly average is about 10; it’s about half that in Port Coquitlam and fewer in the smaller city of Port Moody. The number of child and youth suicides isn’t broken down by city but, on average, 17 youth under 19 kill themselves in B.C. each year, although there are huge swings, making the issue of chid and youth suicide perennially difficult to deal with.

Anti-bully crusader earns prov. honour THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A young champion of anti-bullying measures is being honoured with a Ministry of Justice award. Josh Eisner, a Grade 6 student at Como Lake middle school, will receive the province’s Community Safety and Crime Prevention Award, which recognizes groups and individuals who stand up to crime in their communities. In 2010, Eisner, then a Grade 4 student at Coquitlam’s Porter Street elementary, organized the production and sale of custom t-shirts for Pink Shirt Day, and followed that up in 2011 with the sale of customized pink shirts. That year, he also spearheaded an art project to develop cut-out wooden t-shirts, also painted pink; he even sourced corporate sponsors for the project materials. More than 350 of the wooden shirts were hung on school fences as a visual reminder that bullying at Porter Street el-

Air system likely culprit in Sat. Ikea evacuation The Ikea store in Coquitlam was evacuated last Saturday evening after staff and shoppers noticed a haze wafting throughout the building. Coquitlam Fire Chief

maintenance personnel scoured the building for the source of the haze but found nothing. After about 90 minutes, employees and customers were allowed to re-enter the store.

Tony Delmonico said the incident, which occurred shortly after 5 p.m., was not serious and that a fire alarm was pulled out of an abundance of caution. Firefighters and Ikea

“Fire crews checked all aspects of the building,” he said. “They could determine it was probably an issue with the air handling system.” gmckenna@tricitynews.com

November 11 - A Day for Remembrance Join us as we honour our veterans and armed forces on Remembrance Day in the City of Coquitlam. Sunday, November 11, 2012 Our community celebrations, hosted by the Coquitlam Legion (Branch 263), include: 10:00 a.m. - Remembrance Day Service at Como Lake Middle School Auditorium on King Albert Avenue TransLink says it manages an integrated public transit system — including the planned Evergreen Line to Coquitlam — and cuts to bus service aren’t simple to make.

10:30 a.m. - Parade from Como Lake Middle School to Coquitlam’s Cenotaph on Veterans Way.

Proposed accounting practices a concern

11:00 a.m. - Act of Remembrance & Laying of Wreaths at the Cenotaph

continued from front page

The audit flagged a total of $11 million in service cuts, including reduced SkyTrain frequency at off-peak times. But the bulk of the proposed savings — $30 million — would come by running thinner financial reserves and other less conservative budgeting methods. Olewiler said the board is uncomfortable with the idea TransLink operate with much lower surpluses that could leave it more vulnerable to fluctuations in revenue. “If a shock happened to us — something unexpected and beyond our control — we wouldn’t have the money to sustain the service,”she said. Had thinner reserves been in place when TransLink’s gas tax revenues suddenly dropped over the last year, she noted, it would have been harder to avoid immediate service cuts. She said the board believes in prudent fiscal management, which is also supported by bond rating agencies and results in TransLink being able to borrow more cheaply than if it took greater risks. “To shift to a much less conservative level, I think the board would have a very hard time with that.” The audit endorsed the cost-control efforts TransLink is adopting through its 2013 base plan. The $98 million in savings already approved include shelving most of a previously planned transit expansion as well as further efforts to restructure existing bus service, less frequent weekend SkyTrain service and new or higher parking fees at park-and-rides. Olewiler said she’s optimistic the mayors’ council and the province can reach an agreement on a replacement revenue source for TransLink by the end of February, eliminating the need for

a $30-million property tax increase. The mayors set the deadline last month, saying they intend to rescind the property tax hike no matter what and leave the province to deliver an alternate source to prevent deep transit cuts.

11:30 a.m. - Parade from Cenotaph to Coquitlam’s Legion Hall at Nelson and Ridgeway Show your support by honouring and remembering our Canadian heroes.

Olewiler said TransLink has not yet begun preparing a list of possible cuts to balance the budget if those talks fail. “We’re going to cross that bridge when we come to it.”

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside

■ WHAT WE THINK:

G

etting ahead of the game is increasingly important as developers flock to Coquitlam in advance of the Evergreen Line. But such a riches of new building opportunities ignores another important reality: Coquitlam has long been a bedroom community for people who work elsewhere. The city is now realizing it has to encourage the building of new businesses, not just apartment buildings, to be a complete community as the opening date for the Evergreen Line approaches. Already, 79% of Tri-City residents commute elsewhere for jobs, according to the 2006 census. And the Evergreen Line will only increase that number unless efforts are made to locate offices and other industries in the region. To that end, the city recently published a press release suggesting businesses move into City Centre before the rush. Hopefully, that’s just the beginning of an economic strategy to lure new businesses to the region to take advantage of infrastructure, lifestyle and the fast pace of development growth.

Man, it’s not easy wearing pink. Even after... AS I SEE IT Nick Greenizan

I

’ve been called a lot of things in my life. Fat. Nerd. Loser. Dork. And plenty of names far worse that are not fit for print here (or anywhere else, for that matter). Recently, a new name was added to the list: Skinny. Of course, it preceded a string of expletives but, hey, when you’ve taken great pains to lose weight, you take the kudos where you can find ’em. Even if it wasn’t meant as a compliment in the first place. In fact, it was — in literal terms — a death threat. On a recent Friday evening, after dinner out in Langley, I stopped by the mall, my fiancée and another friend in tow, to pick up a dress shirt I was having tailored so I could wear it when I get married in a few weeks.

The shirt is a checkered pattern, white and pink. Our wedding colours. After picking up the shirt, I was carrying it through the mall when I heard, from behind me, two men, both likely in their 40s, start making fun of me for being in possession of a shirt they had determined, channeling their inner Mr. Blackwell, to be less than manly. I, of course, fired back that I didn’t need their advice. We continued — me and the two women — on our way and into another store. Two minutes later, Neanderthals 1 and 2 — both clearly drunk — appeared in the entryway, yelling and — here’s the best part — threatening to wait for me in the parking lot, where, they proclaimed,“We’ll $*#@-ing kill you, you skinny $%@#$%!!” So there I was, after everything — the creation of Pink Shirt Day in 2007; the rallying against such behaviour in the years since; and, perhaps saddest of all, the death of bullied teen Amanda Todd, the Port Coquitlam girl who took her own life just last month — standing in a mall, flanked by two women, being threatened

for the colour of my shirt. A pink shirt, of all things. So clichéd as to not be believed. But there we were, nonetheless. The situation escalated from there, as these things often do, although I stayed out of the rest of it as these two grown men switched their focus to an unsuspecting 18-year-old kid who was shopping nearby with his girlfriend. He wasn’t wearing pink but he’d upset them when he offered his opinion. Eventually, security was called, the men were hurried out by their wives and children — proud, I’m sure — and we were escorted safely to our vehicle. I told the story numerous times over the next few days and the response, mostly, was the same: bewilderment. How can any adult, friends asked, be so remarkably immature, so close-minded, so oblivious to any of the anti-bullying sentiment being discussed everywhere from television news to online to schools and workplaces? A valid question, but any reasonable point

would have been lost on these two. They obviously fancied themselves tough guys.The kind of people evolution eventually makes disappear. Afterward, I was amped up on adrenaline but it didn’t last. Something like that would’ve rattled the 17-year-old me but that was a long time ago. I’ve grown up since then. Most of us do. Between then and now, you gain a little perspective, and, if you’re lucky, the wherewithal to stand up to people who push you around. Some of us wear pink, too, and don’t give a damn what other people think. And some pick fights over men’s wear. “Y’know,”the security guard joked with me as we walked to my truck.“There’s no cameras in that part of the mall.You coulda decked him.” I laughed and replied I’m not exactly the type — at 31 years old, two weeks from being married — to get into fights. “Of course you aren’t,”he said.“You’re a man.” Nick Greenizan is a reporter at The Peace Arch News, a Black Press sister paper of The Tri-City News.

Email your thoughts to newsroom@tricitynews.com.

M

y let’s-have-a-parade colleague wants to make Remembrance Day a national holiday. He suggest that bigger, more overt displays on Remembrance Day might intensify our appreciation of the sacrifices made by those who went before. But would they? A national Remembrance Day holiday might actually diminish our appreciation or, worse, change it. To justify a national holiday, we would need more and bigger national ceremonies. We would need more flypasts, more flags, more pomp and circumstance. We would likely no longer be able to avoid the kind of hyperbole of heroism and romanticizing of war we hear emanating from south of us. We might unwittingly turn Remembrance Day into a celebration. And Canadians don’t celebrate Remembrance Day, we observe it. So I hope we don’t change Remembrance Day because it’s a day Canadians really get right. It starts with the first poppies on lapels in mid-October.Then, silent symbols that multiply as Nov. 11 approaches, like those in Flanders field — such a powerful statement. The placing of wreaths at cenoNUF_AreaRug_TRI_CA3.pdf 10/31/12 taphs. The 21-gun salute in Ottawa. The moment of silence on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the

eleventh month. It’s all so solemn and poignant. Thirteen years of Remembrance Day assemblies in our schools have helped each of us accept the solemnity of the day, allowing the observance to strike a balance between our deep appreciation for military contribution and our strong abhorrence of war. Nov. 11 was declared a“day of remembrance”in 1931. It was the very fact that it wasn’t declared a national holiday that forced Canadians to observe the day together in workplaces, offices and schools, and develop our respectful observance of the day. If we declare it a national holiday, Canadians would have time to organize Remembrance Day hockey tournaments, fishing trips or shopping outings across the line. No one is against hockey or fishing but I’m not sure that a part of the value of Remembrance Day should be to provide time off for recreational opportunities. The way we observe Remembrance Day doesn’t require intensifying or improvement.The solemn balance Canadians have achieved in our observance of Remembrance Day is maintained by deep tradition, tradition that expresses the respectful remembrance of Canadians with perfect 1:14:41 PM volume. pitch and More isn’t better, and louder isn’t stronger.

Women, watch out for the ‘Black Widow’ The Editor, I want to tell you of my experience of having a heart attack and why women have to become more proactive with their health. I had been experiencing chest pains for a couple of months and, being a pretty fit person who walks a lot and goes to yoga four to five times a week, I never for one second thought I would have a heart attack. But the chest pains became worse and happened every day, so bad that I had to quit walking. I went to the Eagle Ridge Hospital emergency on Thanksgiving Day and spent the whole day getting blood work, x-rays and an ECG. They told me nothing was wrong with my heart, that is was most likely acid reflux but, just to be sure, they would send me for a stress test that week and book me for another test that I couldn’t get until Nov. 7. When I went for the stress test a few days

later, I could not do it because the pain was so bad. Once again, they told me it wasn’t my heart and sent me home. I had another attack that night and at least three or four every day after that. I ended up going to a walk-in clinic close to my house and the man who looked after me there was pretty good because he kept asking me if I had any pain while I was there and of course I didn’t. He said if I did, he would send me to the hospital immediately in an ambulance. He then gave me some sample pills for acid reflux. I left his office and on the way home I had another attack. The pain didn’t go away, so I went to my GP on the Thursday and told her what I had been going through and every symptom I had was screaming heart attack. She said it was most likely acid reflux and to wait until I got the test on Nov. 7. She gave me another prescription for

acid reflux. I got the prescription filled and went home, had several more attacks and then around 12:30 a.m., called 911. The ambulance came right away and I was again taken to Eagle Ridge Hospital. They did what they could there and then rushed me to Royal Columbian Hospital, where they did an angiogram and found that the main artery to my heart was 99% blocked. The doctors at RCH operated and put in a stent to save my life. They call this heart attack the “Black Widow” because it is a killer. The reason I feel compelled to tell this story is because all these professionals made me feel like an idiot and I kept second-guessing myself as to whether it really was my heart. I was too embarrassed to call 911 and it almost cost me my life. Women, beware and take charge of your own health. Georgina Trice, Port Moody

Plant sterols are essential to the body, but like vitamin C, the body cannot synthesize them, they have to be ingested.

While some funding for The Memory Project will be ending in March, the work will continue to preserve oral histories of aging veterans for future generations. In the past year, the project has added more than 350 interviews with Korean War veterans to its online archive and a similar number for Second World War veterans. While funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage will end for the interviews about Second World War experiences, the Historica-Dominion Institute will continue the work, said Alex Herd, project manager for the Memory Project. Herd noted that while Second World War veterans are often willing to be interviewed, sometimes with the encouragement of their families, it can be more challenging to get Korean War veterans to participate. That’s largely due to the fact that for decades, they were not even considered war veterans.  That war, which took place between 1950 and 1953, was officially deemed a “police action” by then-U.S. president Harry Truman for political and diplomatic reasons, Herd explained. While the veterans experienced war-like conditions, it was not considered a war and afterwards, they didn’t receive the same benefits as their counterparts from the Second World War. It wasn’t until after years of lobbying that Korean War veterans were publicly recognized by the federal government as war veterans in the early 1990s. That has all contributed to a reticence among many such veterans to share their stories, Herd said.  The project “is part of our effort to give them the respect they’ve been due, to encourage them to come forward and share their stories, to show them they’re valued members of society and their stories are valued parts of our history,” he said, “and also to educate all Canadians of all generations and backgrounds on what has been a war that’s been neglected in our historical instruction at every level in the country.” He noted that people in Korea continue to be very grateful for Canadians’ efforts in keeping that country free.

B.C.’s municipal auditor begins work in new year Black Press

Chartered accountant Basia Ruta starts work in January as B.C.’s first auditor general for local governments. The new position caused a stir among local politicians when Premier Christy Clark made it part of her leadership bid for the BC Liberal Party. Her platform promised to expand the provincial auditor-general’s office to include a municipal auditor, and to “review the municipal taxation formula.” Clark’s ministers for local government — first, Oak Bay-Gordon Head MLA Ida Chong and now, Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett —

Pedestrian struck in Port Coquitlam By Sarah Payne The Tri-ciTy News

A pedestrian from Port Coquitlam is recovering at home after being struck by a pickup truck Tuesday morning. The man was running across Cedar Drive, near Lincoln Avenue, in PoCo at about 9 a.m. when he was hit by a silver truck; he was not in a crosswalk at the time. “It was raining heavily... the weather may have played a role in this incident,” said Sgt. Dave Fee of Coquitlam RCMP Traffic Services. “We interviewed a number of

witnesses at the scene and would like to talk to anyone else who saw what happened.” The man was initially listed in critical condition but was able to be released from hospital by Wednesday evening. The pick-up truck driver has provided a statement and is cooperating with the investigation. Drugs and alcohol are not believed to be factors in the incident. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 201231196. spayne@tricitynews.com

salemink inquest begins A coroner’s inquest into the death of a Coquitlam woman in 2010 will begin next week. Colette Marie Salemink, 59, died in a fire at her Burian Drive home. Her son, Blake Salemink, was charged with arson and manslaughter, and earlier this year was found not criminally responsible by reason of a mental disorder. Blake Salemink struggled with mental health issues from the time he was a teenager but the tensions between him and his mother escalated in early 2010. A mental health warrant was issued for him on April 1 3 , 2 0 1 0 . I t wo u l d have put him back in Riverview Hospital but when he met with his caseworker two days

later, the warrant wasn’t executed, despite the fact that he appeared giddy and admitted to having auditory hallucinations. Less than a week later, Blake Salemink is believed to have set some papers on fire in his mother’s house and then fled across the U.S. border. He was arrested later that day in Oregon. During the inquest, scheduled to run from Nov. 13 to 16, a presiding coroner and jury will hear evidence to determine the facts surrounding Salemink’s death. The jury will not make findings of legal responsibility but it can make recommendations aimed at preventing similar deaths in the future. spayne@tricitynews.com

of costly bureaucracy while others said the province was going to impose tax rate changes on communities. Those concerns faded as local politicians were assured they wouldn’t lose autonomy; they also faced the prospect of campaigning against extra accountability. Clark promised there would be no costs passed on to local governments to run the auditor’s office. UBCM president Mary Sjostrum, mayor of Quesnel, said Wednesday she welcomes Ruta’s appoint-

As with the campaign to defeat the HST, volunteers will have 90 days in the fall of 2014 to get thousands of signatures from every riding of the province to trigger a referendum.

federal government is going to tolerate this remains to be seen,”Gordon said. If pot is legally sold in Washington, Gordon expects a partial collapse of B.C.’s estimated $7-billion-a-year illegal pot industry as growers relocate their operations south of the border to avoid the need to smuggle. “The operations in B.C. would shrink considerably — they’d be focused entirely on patchy local consumption,”he said. “It’s a huge step forward,” said B.C. marijuana activist Dana

B.C. pot reform advocates are celebrating Washington State’s historic vote Tuesday to legalize and tax marijuana, saying it adds momentum to their campaign for change here. Initiative 502 passed with 55% of voters in favour, making Washington the first U.S. state to legalize possession of up to an ounce of marijuana by adults, along with Colorado, where a similar vote also passed. “Tell everyone I’m elated — it’s the biggest day of our movement ever,” Marc Emery, B.C.’s imprisoned Prince of Pot, tweeted from his U.S. jail cell. His wife Jodie Emery celebrated the win in Seattle — where her husband was indicted for selling pot seeds — with Washington campaigners, including travel guru Rick Steves and the U.S. prosecutor-turned-reformer who put Marc behind bars. But U.S. authorities said their enforcement of national drug laws is unchanged — marijuana remains federally illegal — and it’s unclear how the state can carry out its plan to license marijuana farming and tax its sale in stores without federal consent. Negotiations are expected in a one-year rule-making period before pot there could be legally farmed or sold. Observers here say the political implications are huge for the debate on drug policy reform in B.C., even if Washington’s legalization plan is blocked. “American voters are now ahead of Canadian governments on the cannabis file,” said former B.C. attorney general Geoff Plant, a high-profile reformer with the Stop the Violence coalition. “It helps advance the argument for legalization here in B.C.” Rob Gordon, director of SFU’s school of criminology, says the Washington vote could spur more legalization drives if “the sky doesn’t fall” and Washington starts reaping a windfall of weed revenue. “The dominoes could start toppling,”he said. Washington estimates it would collect $560 million in the first year from a 25% tax on the sale of licensed, regulated marijuana through authorized stores. “Whether or not their

The state law change would be in conflict with federal drug laws. • Removes state law prohibitions against producing, processing and selling marijuana, subject to licensing and regulation. Further rules and details would be worked out over the next year, during which time the state would negotiate with federal authorities. • Imposes 25% taxes on wholesale and retail sale of pot, with most revenue going to health care, drug treatment and education. • Directs state to amend impaired driving laws to include maximum THC levels.

and NDP leader Adrian Dix both say marijuana reform is up to the federal government and the prime minister has said the Conservatives won’t loosen Canada’s drug laws. But Larsen argues Ottawa could, if pressured enough, exempt B.C. from federal narcotics laws to enable a regulated and taxed marijuana experiment here. He said legal pot in Washington helps end the argument that the U.S. may “retaliate or freak out” if B.C. reforms its drug laws. Plant said he prefers full marijuana legalization rather than the halfstep of decriminalization, which doesn’t allow regulation and taxation. “Full legalization removes the economic incentive for the illegal manufacture and distribution,” Plant said, adding authorized retail sales should largely end organized crime’s role. The Washington State vote comes two months after B.C. civic leaders voted to urge the province to decriminalize marijuana and explore methods to regulate and tax it.

For more details, email Chris at cmiller@library. coquitlam.bc.ca. • Free at last: Fines will no longer be imposed on children’s material.The library wishes to promote early literacy among families and children, and removing fines will assist in this important time in a young child’s learning development. • Closed: The City Centre branch at city hall closed Oct. 22 to facilitate the move to the new branch at 1169 Pinetree Way, next to Henderson Place. City Centre materials are unavailable during the closure and if you have placed a hold on an item that belongs to the City Centre collection, there may be a longer than normal wait for your item. Until the new City Centre location opens, all holds will be held for patrons at the Poirier branch.You may return borrowed items may to any public library in the lower mainland or to the drop box at the old City Centre branch.

Without a common language or any sense of where they are, the two must work together to escape.This exciting story of self-discover and independence is set among landmarks of the Canadian wilderness that exist today.Town writes non-fiction, fiction and personal memoir, and you can be one of the first to hear her read from The Copper Trail at the library Nov. 14, 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.fvrl.bc.ca or the Fraser Valley Regional Library Facebook page.

n Remembrance Day this Sunday atVeterans Park in front of Port Coquitlam city hall, we will gather to pay our respects to the fallen members of Canada’s Armed Forces who lost their lives in both world wars as well as Korea and the most recent conflict in Afghanistan. The War Memorial Cenotaph that stands tall over the proceedings has 41 names inscribed upon it, including 16 honouring those from the Second World War who gave their lives. We hear their names dutifully read aloud each year by members of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 133 as we stand in respectful silence —“ S.W.F. Baker, H. Barnum, E.R. Berkey…” — and I find myself wishing I knew more about these 16 young men who enlisted and fought and died for our freedom. What were their hopes and dreams? What paths might their lives have taken had war not interrupted their youth? We will never know the answers to those questions but you can learn a little more about them below: • S.W.F. Baker: Pilot Officer Shirley Waldemar Frank ‘Bud’ Baker RCAF was 23 years old when reported missing in early December 1943 after a bombing raid over Berlin. He had graduated from James Park High School and lived on Dominion Avenue with his mother. • H. Barnum: Harlin James ‘Barney’ Barnum was the youngest son of William and Edith Barnum, who lived in the BackDitch (Cedar Drive) area. He attended school here along with twin broth-

Naturalists host speaker on tankers

Compared the Enbridge pipeline in northern B.C., the proposed twinning of the Kinder Morgan pipeline to carry diluted bitumen from Alberta to a coastal terminus in Burnaby has received relatively little attention. The expansion would mean a huge jump in the number and size of tankers in Burrard Inlet and the Strait of Georgia, and the Georgia Strait Alliance is encouraging local residents to get informed about this proposal. The alliance is concerned about potential spills of heavy tar-like bitumen, and they suggest communities should focus not on pipeline expansion but on transitioning to new sustainable sources of energy. The executive director of the organization, Christianne Wilhelmson, will present a slideshow on this issue at the Nov. 13 meeting of the Burke Mountain Naturalists. (This presentation was rescheduled from September, when it was cancelled.) At the meeting, BMN will have display maps of the path the KinderMorgan pipeline takes through Coquitlam and Burnaby. The meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13 in the hall of Como Lake United Church (on the corner of Marmont Street and King Albert Avenue in Coquitlam). For more information, call 604-936-4108 or 604-461-3864, or visit www.bmn.bc.ca.

WORRIED YOUR NEW MORTGAGE COULD PUSH THE IMPORTANT THINGS OUT OF YOUR LIFE?

GEORGIA STRAIT ALLIANCE

The number and size of tankers navigating Burrard Inlet will increase greatly with the twinning of the Kinder Morgan pipeline, says the Georgia Strait Alliance, whose executive director will speak next week at a Burke Mountain Naturalists meeting in Coquitlam.

Worried about the Chinese government taking over Canadian companies?

You won’t believe PM Harper’s latest sellout. Hon. James Moore, MP: Please Do the Right Thing and Oppose a Bad Deal for Canadians! Prime Minister Harper plans to move Canada one giant step closer to becoming a resource colony for foreign investors. The Harper government has discarded many critical Canadian voices and agreed to one of the most controversial and binding trade agreements ever - and one you’ve likely never heard of. And so far, your MP, the Hon. James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, has gone along with this plan. PM Harper’s Canada-China Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Act, or FIPA, undermines Canadian democracy and sovereignty. Chinese state-owned companies will be able to complain that their profits were harmed by changes to environmental, labour, or other

info@ForestEthicsAdvocacy.org | 604.331.6201 Join the conversation on Twitter at #cdnpoli.

Canadian laws or regulations - and lodge a dispute with a secret tribunal that will decide these cases. Canada will have no recourse to its own courts and legislatures. And worst of all, this incredibly bad deal will put us in a straightjacket for 31 years. One thing is for sure, though: it’s a really good deal for foreign investors, including China’s state-owned oil companies. What does this mean in practical terms? If PM Harper approves Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline and the government of British Columbia decides to impose new restrictions to protect the BC Coast from oil spills or to reject the project, investors could sue under the treaty. If BC decides to put restrictions on shale gas fracking, foreign investors could object and

demand hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation. Canadians will no longer have final say over what happens on our land. This dangerous trade deal was sprung on Canadians with no public debate, without consent from the provinces whose jurisdiction is impacted, and without Parliamentary scrutiny or a vote in the House. Stand with us against a deal that only foreign investors could want. Email the Hon. James Moore, MP at james. moore@parl.gc.ca and tell him to help stop this bad deal before it’s too late.

More than 4,000 people aged 55 and over, took part in the events in August, with Coquitlam residents tied to the Fraser Valley Zone 3 team winning second place overall: 173 gold, 138 silver and 110 bronze medals. “We would like to applaud the efforts of all our participants at the games. Whether they won a medal or not, they are champions for working hard to achieve their goals,”the mayor said.

THE GOLDEN YEARS

Make sure home is safe As we age, most of us would prefer to live in our own homes for as long as possible. This is also true for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and a familiar environment can help people with dementia connect to their past and maintain their sense of identity. But according to a release from the Alzheimer Society of BC, when an aging parent or family member has lived in his or her home for years — perhaps decades — we tend to ignore potential safety issues because they have always been there. For example, a decorative rug might have added a feeling of warmth and comfort to a room in the past but is now potentially a tripping hazard. Nov. 6 to 12 is National Senior Safety week in Canada and a good reminder to identify potential safety concerns around the home and address them with some simple solutions. Below are some tips from the

society for adapting the home environment to make it easier and safer for a person with dementia to continue living at home. These are general suggestions to consider; if you are concerned about a person with dementia’s safety, it’s important to also consult a health-care professional. • Prevent falls: Help to prevent slips and falls in the home by removing throw rugs, loose carpeting and clutter from the floor. Ensure frequently travelled areas are well-lit and put brightly coloured tape or paint around the edges of steps or around the bathtub to ensure they are clearly visible. In the bathroom, use a non-slip shower mat and sturdy shower bench and install grab rails wherever extra support is needed. • Safety on the stairs: Consider adding a ramp with a slip-proof surface up outdoor steps. Ensure a handrail is in place on both sides of a set of stairs or a ramp. Ask your family member to remove reading glasses

when climbing the stairs and to avoid carrying objects such as laundry baskets while using the stairs. • Cooking safety: Purchase appliances with automatic shut-offs

to prevent fires. If the person with dementia can no longer safely use the stove, consider installing safety knobs as well.

Make sure smoke alarms are in good working order and that there is a fire extinguisher in the kitchen. Secure any potentially dangerous items, such as sharp knives, as appropriate. Choose food items that are non-perishable, such as canned goods, to prevent the person from accidentally eating spoiled foods. • Medication safety: Maintain an updated list of all medications and instructions on when and how to take them. Store medications in a dark and dry location, such as a cupboard. Keep medication in its original packaging. Consider using a seven-day pill organizer, a blister pack or a pill dispenser with a timer; your pharmacist can advise you on what is available to use. Regularly check medications to ensure that nothing has expired. Keep prescriptions filled and bring extra medication when travelling in case of delays.

What’s your cactus, Christmas or crab? iN THe GARDeN Brian Minter

By making sure the plants have natural hours of darkness starting in mid-September and by maintaining night temperatures of 55 F (12.5 C) one crop can be brought into flower in late October.The blooming of the second crop can be delayed until November or early December by keeping the temperatures higher and by adding nighttime lighting.To get this second crop to flower, it too must be cooled and given less daylight hours prior to the desired blooming time. It’s important to know these details because many folks who have ‘Zygos’ can’t get them to bloom.This is usually because their plants are kept year round in a very warm room and their house lights are left on late at night.To have success, these conditions must be adjusted. The other common problem with these plants is blossom drop. It is important to remember that these cacti need not only well drained soil, but also a humid environment for the blossoms to fully develop. Don’t be afraid to mist them daily with warm water and it really helps to place them on a saucer with gravel and water underneath. As for watering, give them a good drink of warm water, then let them dry out between waterings. Never keep the soil too wet or too dry. If it is the real Christmas Cactus you are after, they can be hard to find.The correct name for this variety is ‘Schlumbergera bridgesii’.They only come in a rosy red colour and their leaves are smooth and spineless, unlike the Zygocactus.They need the same care as Zygocactus, but they usually bloom bang on for Christmas.

H

rather easily. All three cuttings are then planted in four inch pots with very well drained soil and placed in a warm humid greenhouse to encourage fast growth. By the end of September, the plants are usually developed well enough to be saleable, but

they must first be brought into bud and bloom. The trick here is to give them short hours of daylight (very much like poinsettias) and cooler temperatures. Growers can space out the blooming periods simply by controlling both the amount of daylight and the temperature.

ave you ever wondered why your Christmas cactus always blooms too early or too late for the Christmas season? The simple answer is that you probably don’t have a true Christmas cactus. The most popular cactus in our part of the world is a ‘Schlumbergera truncata’ (or Zygocactus truncatus).This variety is often called a ‘crab cactus’ because of its flat sharptoothed leaves. Large, long tubed petals can appear anytime from November to March and in many cases, it will bloom twice during this period.The colour range used to include only pink, white orange and salmon, but extensive hybridization has led to the development of fluorescent pink, scarlet, bright lavender and even yellow. Zygocactus are easy to grow and require minimal care.The most important fact to remember is that this cactus comes from the rainforest, so for its ultimate performance in your home, you must treat it like a rainforest plant. Unlike traditional cacti,‘Zygos’ love humidity. They also need very well drained soil, otherwise their roots will quickly rot.To produce a November blooming crop, commercial growers take their cuttings in March or April when the daylight hours begin to lengthen. Usually three cuttings are rooted in a small cell pack using either sand or a perlite and sand mix.They root

Onni commissions study from Urban Analytics

Adding value near rapid transit The availability of rapid transit is one of the most important things that buyers are looking for in a home development in recent years, and a report by Urban Analytics for Onni has demonstrated the increase in value that comes with this convenience. “Transit plays a big factor in the market,” says Nick Belmar of Onni. “This report just substantiates our argument about what people could expect when they buy near transit.” The report notes that new condos located along the Canada Line in Richmond and the Cambie corridor saw an increase in value, with Richmond seeing an increase of 21

per cent and Cambie finding a 33 per cent rise between 2009 and 2010. In Richmond, values increased by 15 per cent before the line was completed, and then six per cent over its first year. Cambie saw similar results, with a 19 per cent increase before the line opened and a continued rise after. “Values of newer condos located near a new rapid transit line will see an increase in value in the period ... preceding the completion of a rapid transit system, and ... while the rate of value appreciation tends to slow in the months after ... completion, higher values are sustained in the long term,” says Urban Analytics’ Michael Ferreira.

developers recognize this area as a hot spot.” Carlsen says. “Buyers want to live here.” It’s no wonder, with Willowbrook Shopping Centre just a five minute walk away, and schools, recreation, dining and shopping all in the neighbourhood. The area is incredibly family friendly, but it also works well for first-time buyers and downsizers alike. Owners will be able to take possession of their new place at the

end of 2013. Over 50 per cent of the 69 homes are already sold, and Carlsen attributes this to three very important factors. “This is a fantastic product at a fantastic price in an unbeatable location,” he says. “I really think it comes down to value.” Two-bedroom, two-bathroom homes at Salix start at $229,900. For more information, visit www.salixliving.com or call 604-530-0054.

‘It’s really worked out well’

Salix offers great value in Surrey’s Clayton Heights By Kerry Vital

Woodbridge Homes is bringing a touch of modern elegance to Surrey’s Clayton Heights neighbourhood with its condominium development, Salix. That elegance starts outside your home, with the five-storey building’s classic Georgian-inspired architecture. Red brick and styled ironwork combine with the craftsman woodwork accents to make for a chic entrance. Salix is surrounded by lush greenery, and includes a courtyard for residents with arbors and benches.

This is a fantastic product at a fantastic price in an unbeatable location,” says sales manager Rob Carlsen.

Inside, buyers have three different interior design schemes to choose from: two contemporary and one traditional. The contemporary schemes (called Sallow and Osier) feature stone countertops and chic white satin flat panel upper cabinets and Teak or Wenge laminate flat panel lower cabinets, complemented by a modern stainless-steel feature hood fan and a ceramic tile backsplash with glass tile accents in the kitchen. Meanwhile, the traditional scheme (called Willow) includes elegant granite countertops and Victorian cabinetry in a dark wood, with its own custom Broan hood fan and tumbled limestone backsplash with a custom hand-set centrepiece. Both options are beautiful, so it’s up to you what style you want in your home. “This allows purchasers to pick and choose,” says Carlsen. “It’s really worked out well.” All three options feature stainlesssteel appliances and under-cabinet lighting, along with spacious bathrooms with walk-in showers surrounded by ceramic tile and well-lit large vanity mirrors, so your morning routine will be easy as possible. There are 15 different floorplans available, ranging from 474 to 1,290 square feet in a variety of one-, twoand three-bedroom configurations, and all have proven popular with buyers, Carlsen says. “The larger ones have done really well with downsizers. They don’t need a

big house anymore, but they still want space,” he says. Nine-foot ceilings are included throughout, with 10-foot ceilings on the top and bottom floors. Laminate flooring is featured in the main living areas, while comfortable trackless nylon carpeting in the bedrooms is great to sink your toes into first thing in the morning or late at night. Oversize windows let the natural light flood your home no matter what the weather is doing outside. If you’re in the mood for a bit of outdoor living, every condo at Salix has a private balcony or patio. One thing that Carlsen is particularly excited about at Salix is the storage space that comes with each residence. Located in your parking stall, the fourfoot by eight-foot space with its solid metal roll-down door could really be called a mini-garage. “It’s safe, secure and convenient,” says Carlsen. “It’s been huge with buyers.” The Clayton Heights area has seen a boom in new home projects recently. “I think it speaks to the fact that

Homes at Salix include a private storage space for each unit, top, that serves as a mini-garage. The spacious floorplans include plenty of natural light and opulent master suites, above.

Canada West wins with Kerfoot Forward notches five points in two int’l games By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

Coquitlam Express hockey fans are already familiar with Express f o r wa rd A l e x a n d e r Kerfoot’s ability to put the puck in the net. .But now he is receiving some recognition on the international stage. The 18-year-old led the game in scoring, popping in two goals and two helpers during Canada West’s 7-0 romp over the Czech Republic at the World Junior ‘A’ Challenge Tuesday night. Ker f o ot ’ s l in e , which consisted of Saskatchewan Junior ‘A’ Hockey League player Rhyse Dieno and Alberta Junior ‘A’ Hockey League player Dylan Richard, combined for 10 points in the win. “We wanted to get off to a quick start and just play the full 60 minutes,” said Dean Brockman, head coach for Canada West. “We talk about seconds in our dressing room and the guys did a great job.” But Kerfoot was not done scoring Tuesday night. On Wednesday, he

not ched two more assists in Canada We s t ’ s o v e r time win against KERFOOt Russia, giving him five points in two games, tied for first in points at the tournament. The team now sits in first place in the Group A division, while the United States’ win over Canada East has put them at the top of the Group B division. With the conclusion of the round-robin portion of the tournament, Kerfoot’s crew are preparing for the playoff round that is expected to wrap up with the championship game on Sunday. Meanwhile, the Coquitlam Express are scheduled to play at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex on Friday at 7 p.m. against the Chilliwack Chiefs.

SFU Clan’s Durant enjoys the end zone By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

The SFU Clan football team ended its regular season on a high note last week with a win during its last home game of the year. Coquitlam’s Lemar

Durant was brilliant in the win, catching seven passes and banking 131 yards while scoring two touchdowns as the team defeated the Humboldt State University Lumberjacks 41-37. Durant was integral to the play that helped

SFU, down 37-34 in the final minutes of the game, re-take the lead and eventually win the match. After Port Coquitlam’s Bobby Pospischill leapt over a Humboldt defender to make the first down, Clan quarterback

Trey Wheeler connected with Durant who scored the game-winning touchdown. But the game was not over yet. With more than a minute left on the clock the Lumberjacks found themselves in the Clan’s

red zone, four yards from the goal line. The SFU defence, led by Port Moody’s Casey Chin, who had eight tackles in the game, were able to stop the Lumberjacks and secure the win. sports@tricitynews.com

Bobby Pospischil had 108 yards receiving and 15 yards rushing against Humboldt on the weekend.

COQUITLAM METRO-FORD SOCCER PLAYERS of the WEEK FEMALE PLAYER OF THE WEEK:

MALE PLAYER OF THE WEEK:

COQUITLAM METRO-FORD RAVENS The Under 16 Metro-Ford Ravens suffered a heart-breaking 1-0 loss to the Abbotsford Tigers this past weekend, despite the amazing performance of central defender CHARLOTTE WISHART. For most of the match, Charlotte was able to keep the play out of the Metro-Ford penalty area with her fearless determination and insurmountable grit. To cap off an excellent individual performance, Charlotte came close to scoring on two occasions in the second half, on well-delivered corner kicks. For her brilliant performance this past weekend, CHARLOTTE WISHART has been named Coquitlam Metro-Ford female player of the week.

COQUITLAM METRO-FORD CRUSADERS The entire Under 16 Metro-Ford Crusaders team has played remarkably well this season. However, special mention should be made of THEO PAPADOGAMBROS who has worked tremendously hard in his midfield position. Not only has Theo controlled the middle of the park with poise and skill, but he has also contributed defensively and offensively to the Crusaders’ successful start to the season. In fact, Theo has scored 6 goals and assisted in 6 others and he has also helped the Crusaders’ defenders with his grit and tenacity. For his remarkable performances during the first part of the season, THEO PAPADOGAMBROS has been selected as Coquitlam Metro-Ford Male Player of the Week!

Vikings keep on winning The Coquitlam Vikings’ dominance has continued into the post-season on Sunday at Mackin Park where the team notched a commanding victory over the North Surrey Falcons. An undefeated Coquitlam squad jumped out to an early lead and did not look back, eventually blanking their opponents 48-0. Moe Hassan racked up three touchdowns in the first half, while Matt Shuen picked up another TD off a fumble he recovered in the end zone to give the Cougars

Collins racks up points for SFU By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

Po r t C o q u i t l a m ’ s Kristina Collins led the Simon Fraser University Clan’s women’s team with 14 points as the club fell 72-69 last week against the Seattle University Redhawks. The former Riverside Rapids point guard, who averaged 11.4 points per

COllinS

game last season, played 33 minutes in the road contest and had two steals in

the game. Seattle jumped to an early 16-11 lead in the game before SFU went on a 16-2 run that gave

the Clan a 31-26 lead before the end of the second quarter. But the Redhawks were able to make a few halftime adjustments and responded by outscoring the clan 15-2 in the final minutes to take the victory. “We blew a good lead in the final four minutes,” said head coach Bruce Langford. “It was frustrating as we started

slowly, played well for 30 minutes and then gave it away. It’s tough when you shoot as well as we did but turn the ball over as much as we did.” The SFU Clan is heading to Anaheim, Calif., this weekend for the annual Disney TipOff Classic. There the team will take on Grand Canyon, West Texas A&M and UC San Diego.

at 32-0 lead at half time. Shuen and Hassan each added another TD in the second half. On defence, Keon Fuoco, Mario Marra and Joseph Bianchi kept the pressure up on the Surrey offence, finishing numerous tackles between the trio of players.

COUGAR AleRt

The Coquitlam Cougars got off to a rough start this season but ended with a four game winning streak in peewee minor football on the weekend. Jevaun Jacobsen scored four touchdowns

in the team’s latest win over Surrey on Sunday, helped in large part by Ethan Shuen, who had several long runs to get the team into scoring position. Dominic BoulangerPorta managed to add to the Cougar’s totals with a touchdown of his own. Chaz Marshall and Alex Figner anchored the defensive line while teammates Matthew Glover, Eric Polan, Jaden Severy and Tanner Wong had strong games in the backfield. The team is now preparing for the playoffs which begin next week.
