It may still look like a construction zone but the new Port Mann Bridge will open to eight lanes of traffic on Saturday, Dec. 1, the Ministry of Transportation and

Infrastructure has announced. The transition will happen gradually and drivers still need to take extra care traveling through the area, the ministry has noted in a press release. Beginning this Saturday, Nov. 17, two

lanes of Highway 1 westbound traffic will be shifted onto the new bridge. Crews will continue to work in the area to complete the highway widening and Cape Horn improvements at the north end, and drivers should watch for new

signs as crews reposition barriers and lanes leading on to the new bridge. According to the ministry’s press release, the first week of eight-lane operation will be free and tolling will begin Dec. 8. see REGULAR USERS, page 13

Honouring family & the fallen on Remembrance Day By Tim Fitzgerald THE TRI-CITY NEWS

First, there is silence. Then, an explosion. Beginning at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, both the quiet and the loud at the Port Moody Royal Canadian

Legion Remembrance D ay c e r e m o ny d e manded recollection and commemoration of those who contributed to Canada’s war efforts. Following a parade to the cenotaph and two minutes of silence, a

21-gun salute reminded participants of the sacrifice of countless of Canadian veterans, from the trenches of the First World War to more recent battles in Afghanistan. For parade marshall

and Sergeant-at-Arms Leo Braniff, Sunday’s service was a chance to reflect of a life given to service. “It’s sad. Each year, there are fewer and fewer of the old vets who make it back,” said

Braniff, who was raised in Peterborough, Ont. before he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1957. After seven and a half years, he left and spent 25 years in the reserve while serving as a police offer for more

than a quarter of century. A life of public service leaves Braniff with a deep appreciation for the freedoms Canadian citizens hold so dear to their hearts. “It’s so important,” he notes. “It’s nice to see so

many young people here. Knowing they are being taught about our history means a lot. You see it with how many cadets we have honouring the fallen.” see DEFENDING, page 3

Defending freedoms continued from front page

For Al Otto, Sunday’s service was a chance to honour family members who fought the good fight. His father, a field medic in the Russian Army in WWI, made his way to freedom after serving his country. Both Ott’s brothers served in the RCAF. “He literally had to escape Russia,” Otto said of his father. “He wouldn’t talk about it. I heard most of the stories from my older brothers. “It’s not like he was allowed to buy a ticket to leave,” said Otto, who took in Sunday’s parade and service with his son Sandy and daughter-inlaw Teri-Lynn. As the close-knit family reflected on the importance of this solemn day of observance, they also looked to the generation that will be called to defend our freedoms in the future. “Having so many young faces here, knowing they remember the sacrifice made, that’s what’s important,” said Teri-Lynn Otto.

Images from Remembrance Day services Sunday at the Royal Canadian Legion in Port Moody (clockwise from top left): Sea cadet Matt Roszmann beats the drum during the parade. “The Last Post” echoes through a grey morning. Poppies adorns the coats of cadets. Tom Warwick of the Legion takes part in the parade. Members of the Seymour Artillery Company stand at attention during the 21-gun salute. Sparks Arawyn Spalek, Kaitlyn Questroo, Saige Masse and Brooklyn Caldarella take part in the parade. And Lucy Liu of the of the Sea Cadets takes a moment to honour the fallen.

1% tax wanted for facilities By Sarah Payne The Tri-CiTy News

Coquitlam is looking ahead to 2013 with an eye to the city’s growth, planning for the Evergreen Line and improving services to residents. On Tuesday, council heard from department heads about highlights from 2012 and the financial challenges that lie ahead for 2013. City manager Peter

Steblin kicked off the day’s proceedings on a positive note, emphasizing the city is “at the right place geographically at the right time, with the right mix of opportunities and challenges and the right ingredients for success.” He cited the completion of the King Edward Overpass, the transitoriented development strategy, plans for the new fire hall on Burke Mountain and the new

City Centre library branch — which opened yesterday — as key accomplishments in 2012. Steblin is proposing a new 1% tax for a new facilities fund. “We’ve always planned to do this for our facilities but then [the global financial meltdown of] 2008 happened,” he said. “The desire for new facilities is very large.” Total expenditures anticipated for 2013 come to nearly $255 million, of

which 30% ($75 million) is for labour costs. Capital expenditures account for 23% ($59 million), followed by utilities at 22% ($53 million). The city brings in revenues of just under $253 million, mainly from property taxes (47%, or $119 million). On Wednesday, council will be hearing from cultural group representatives vying for city tax dollars. spayne@tricitynews.com

Suspect faces 22 criminal charges, in custody until bail hearing

Handling of Coq. murder victim & one other is in question By Sheila Reynolds BlaCk Press

The Crown’s case against a former coroner from Chilliwack accused of improperly examining two female murder victims in Coquitlam and Langley is being laid out in court this week. A preliminary inquiry into charges against Kenneth Glen Mattinson opened Thursday morning in Surrey Provincial Court. The actual trial will come later, if a judge determines there is sufficient evidence to proceed. Evidence given during the preliminary inquiry is subject to a publication ban and cannot be reported. Mattinson, 63, was charged in October 2010 with two counts each of interference with a dead body and breach of trust by a public officer. At the time of his arrest, the

RCMP said a forensic identification officer at a crime scene in Langley “noticed what appeared to be a pattern of questionable and possibly criminal behaviour in the manipulation of bodies.” The investigation, police said, involved examinations at crime scenes after two murders: the shooting of 21-year-old Brianna Helen Kinnear in Coquitlam in February 2009; and the Langley shooting a month later of 36-year-old Laura Lynne Lamoureux. Police said Mattinson retired from the B.C. Coroners Service shortly after the investigation was launched. Mattinson, a tall, balding man with a short beard and glasses, listened and occasionally spoke to his lawyer as evidence was given in court Thursday morning. Two friends of one of the victims also attended court, one of them leaving in tears at one point. Mattinson’s preliminary inquiry was scheduled for two days.

disguise with intent to commit an offence and possession of stolen property. He remains in custody and is scheduled to appear at a bail hearing on Nov. 28. “Our job is not done,” Chung said. “We continue to work with the Crown counsel’s office to make

sure the criminal charges will stand up in court. A string of robberies has plagued the Austin Heights neighbourhood since the summer, including one incident at a Remedy’s Rx Drug store next to the Community Po l i c e S t a t i o n o n Ridgeway Avenue.

PoCo people divided on taxes The Tri-ciTy news

Port Coquitlam residents are divided when it comes to how much the city should collect in taxes and how those funds should be allocated, according to a recent Ipsos Reid survey commissioned by the city. The survey, which asked 400 people 28 questions between Sept. 12 and 24, found that 47% of respondents would rather see a tax increase than service cuts, with 29% agreeing to a tax increase to maintain existing services and 18% willing to pay higher taxes for enhanced services. Another 42% of those surveyed said they would rather see service cuts than increased taxes, with 32% choosing service cuts to maintain existing service levels and 9% choosing cuts in order to reduce taxes. The results of the survey will help guide the municipality with its decision making as council begins work on its 2013’17 financial plan, a document that will outline municipal spending priorities over the next five years. “Citizen surveys, particularly statistically valid surveys like this one, help council make informed decisions,” Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore said in a press release. “We’re happy to see from the results that we’re on the right track and we’ll be looking through the data closely to see how we can serve the community better.” When it comes to capital projects, PoCo residents appear reticent to spend more money. Only 39% would support increases taxes to fund new capital projects, services

Something fishy at R’view By Tim Fitzgerald The Tri-CiTy News

Rarely would the sight of a few fish swimming in a creek cause so much optimism. But as salmon make their way back to the creeks on the Riverview Hospital grounds, the group advocating for the preservation of the 244acre site point to yet another reason why it must remain in public hands. “This property is so much better than just another housing development,” said Norma Gillespie, a member of the Riverview Horticultural Centre Society. She and husband Don Gillespie have spent countless hours over the past 20 years making the public aware of the value of the land and as they make their way along the banks of the creek inhabited by the chum salmon, they point out restoration work done on Riverview Creek as compensation for development of Cypress, Cottonwood and Connolly lodges. The work, they say, is a significant step to returning the area to what it once was. But it’s likely a bigger catalyst for the return of spawning salmon to Riverview Creek is the completion of a $4-million habitat enhancement

Something Special’s on the Menu.

TIM FITZGERALD/ThE TRI-cITy nEwS

David Mounteney, Don and Norma Gillespie, and Laura Dupont check out the return of salmon to the creeks and streams on the Riverview Hospital grounds in Coquitlam. project at Colony Farm, below Riverview, where tidal function was restored and a rearing area for fish was dug out. The project, including tree planting, was carried out as mitigation for the Port Mann Highway 1 highway widening project. The improved fish habitat is encouraging fish migrating up the Fraser River to duck into the Coquitlam River and its tributaries to spawn. On their trip to check out the returning chum, the Gillespies brought fellow RHCS member

Laura Dupont and David Mounteney of the Burke Mountain Naturalists. Both were ecstatic to see the return of the chum. “It was amazing to see how many fish were in the streams today,” noted Mounteney, who also volunteers with the group Coquitlam River Watch. “There are so many creeks and streams on the property that have been mowed right to the edge that could be reenhanced, have riparian areas added to them, and a number of streams that could be day-lighted.”

All four on site said not only do they want the work to continue on the watershed but the grounds as a whole have such significant environmental and historical importance. The arboretum on the grounds is one of the oldest in the country. see FISH, page 8

Notice is hereby given that the City of Coquitlam will be holding a Public Hearing to receive representations from all persons who deem it in their interest to address Council regarding the following proposed bylaws. This meeting will be held on: Date: Monday, November 26, 2012 time: 7:00 p.m. location: city Hall council chambers, 3000 guildford Way, coquitlam, bc V3b 7N2 Immediately following the adjournment of the Public Hearing, Council will convene a Regular Council Meeting during which it will give consideration to the items on the Public Hearing agenda.

Th e i r s e n t i m e n t s were backed up earlier this summer when the Heritage Canada Foundation released its top 10 list of most endangered historical sites for 2012 and Riverview was included. Don Gillespie says the key will be to keep up the pressure on those who ultimately hold the fate of Riverview in their hands. “Politicians are going to make the final decision, so we need people to get up on their hind legs and say, ‘You’re not touching that bloody place, you’re not taking one-square centimetre of this place,’” he said.“It’s all we got left. It used to be 1,000 acres, now it’s 244. Come on, let’s get real.” They will have to wait and see what will become their beloved lands. But for today, victory swims upstream Said Norma: “We’re all totally encouraged to see the fish come back.”

The third instalment in a film series about Riverview Hospital in Coquitlam will be presented tomorrow at Douglas College. Premiering at David Lam campus in Coquitlam on Nov. 15, Consciousness is a 25-minute film produced by Heidi Currie, a DC criminology instructor, and Anna Tremere of the Riverview Hospital Historical Society. It will be shown in room A1470 at 7 p.m.The screening is free, open to the public and will be followed by a Q&A session and refreshments. Consciousness tells the story of Dr. Ralph Arrowsmith, a mid-20th century psychiatrist with a lifelong connection to Riverview, which opened in 1913 and closed last summer. Dr. Arrowsmith recounts his years of practice with frank discussions of the treatment and perception of the mentally ill at the iconic mental hospital, from the peak of the institutional movement through deinstitutionalization. “To hear from somebody who spent his professional life at Riverview and became medical director there is fascinating, because the asylum system no longer exists,”says Currie.“This film gives us insight into the real hospital — that goes beyond stereotypes.” But Currie also points out that while popular impressions about asylums are overblown, the institutions could in fact be terrifying places. “People like it to be scary,”she says.“And it is kind of scary. In this film we have this loving, wonderful, even endearing psychiatrist who tells his story, but underneath, as he describes his years at the hospital, are jolting examples of what sometimes made it a terrifying place.” Dr. Arrowsmith, along with Currie,Tremere and the director of Consciousness will be in attendance. Featuring archival film and photography combined with recreations, Consciousness is part three of the Riverview Hospital Story Project. Look for part one, Asylum, and part two, Bedlam, onVimeo.

Notice of Public HeariNg How do I find out more information?

text amendment for Parking requirements related to the transit-oriented development strategy (tds)

Additional information, copies of the bylaws, supporting staff reports, and any relevant background documentation may be inspected from November 14, 2012 to November 26, 2012 in person at the Planning and Development Department, Coquitlam City Hall, 3000 Guildford Way, Coquitlam during the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from Monday to Friday excluding statutory holidays.

The intent of bylaw No. 4352, 2012 is to amend City of Coquitlam Zoning Bylaw No. 3000, 1996 to implement changes to the parking requirements for apartment, townhouse and commercial uses within the Evergreen Line “Core and Shoulder” Station areas, as defined in the Transit Oriented Development Strategy (TDS) and identified on the maps below marked “Schedule A to Bylaw No. 4352, 2012.”* Highlights of the proposed amendments are as follows: • The required parking rates for two-bedroom dwelling units in apartment and townhouse uses within the Evergreen Line Core and Shoulder Station areas would be reduced from 1.50 spaces to 1.35 spaces per unit; • A new rate of one (1) stall per 45m2 of gross floor area is proposed for the C-7 Transit Village Commercial Zone, the same rate as the C-4 City Centre Commercial Zone; • “Transportation Demand Management” (TDM) would be defined and would mean measures aimed at reducing the demand for private vehicle use or an off-street parking space; • A provision to allow up to a 5% reduction in off-street parking requirements, if TDM measures are provided and approved by the General Manager Engineering and Public Works; • Require off-street parking spaces for commercial and residential visitor, mixed-use development sites to be shared, and not reserved for specific users, if TDM measures are provided; • Payment-in-lieu (PIL) of Parking Spaces for further parking reductions requested up to a maximum 15%. The Bylaw proposes a fee of $20,000 for each required off-street parking space not provided. If approved, the proposed amendment will accommodate the supply of parking relative to the trend of reduced vehicle ownership and lower parking utilization rates within transit station communities. *Please note that due to the size of the areas indicated on the maps marked “Schedule A to Bylaw No. 4352, 2012” some place names and fine detail may be difficult to read. A larger, higher resolution pdf copy of the maps is available form the “Public Notices” page on the City’s website at www.coquitlam.ca or upon request from the City Clerks Office.

t’s hard to fathom that pockets of poverty exist in the relatively affluent neighbourhoods of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody. But the startling increase in food bank use over the past several years suggests something is taking place beyond the surface in this community of comfortable homes, busy shopping centres and well-stocked grocery stores. The most obvious conclusion is that after paying for housing at some of the highest rental rates and house prices in the country, many people can’t afford to pay for food and, thus, find themselves at a local food bank once or twice a month. Share Family and Community Services has seen the number of people who rely on food banks grow by 55% between 2006 and 2010, with those numbers climbing today to about 59%, according to its CEO Martin Wyant. Fortunately, the community has always managed to meet this demand, and thanks to many businesses, individuals, groups and schools that donate food and money, there always seems to be just enough food on the shelves to fill those hampers. But is that enough to address the needs of poverty in the region? While it’s true many will argue about the nature of poverty, its causes and its exact definition, we do know that there are children in these families who may be struggling because of forces not of their making. Should we let those children struggle forever or can something be done to increase their chances of success? Share has decided that something should be done and rather than pointing fingers of blame, the social service agency is trying to come up with some priorities and rally the community to help. This roll-up-your-sleeves approach is sensible. With the right approach and the right project, the community can be inspired to take action and establish a legacy that goes beyond feeding people one day at a time.

The mystery of missing salmon is far from solved BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA efore the 1,200-page, $25-million Cohen Commission report on the Fraser River sockeye salmon fishery slips beneath the waves, allow me to dip my toe into the river of data that has flowed by in the past three years. If your information on this hugely complex subject consisted of skimming a few news stories or watching protesters on TV, you will likely conclude what urban people have been indoctrinated with for years. The whole issue is salmon farms and whether they are bad or catastrophic. “Freeze new salmon farms on sockeye migration route: Cohen”said the headline on a Black Press report. Those who read past the headline would learn that Justice Bruce Cohen recommended a freeze on further salmon farms around the Discovery Islands group near Campbell River until 2020. It’s up to the

B

industry to show by that time that the risk is “minimal,”or farms there should be shut down. A BC Salmon Farming Association spokesperson said only nine of 70 B.C. salmon farms are in that area. There are no current applications for more. Let’s say you decide to plunge in and download the full report from www.cohencommission.ca. If you go to Volume 2, page 102, you will see a series of graphs that show sockeye runs from rivers other than the Fraser, from Washington all the way up to Alaska. It’s not a pretty sight. From Washington up to the Central Coast, the Skeena, Nass and up toYukon’s Klukshu and Alaska’s Alsek, most runs show a decline starting in the 1980s or early 1990s. This includes runs that migrate down the west side of Vancouver Island, away from salmon farms. Alaska doesn’t allow farms, preferring“ranching”— a strategy that floods the ocean habitat with millions of hatchery fish. These are commercially fished and marketed as“wild.” B.C.’s North Coast has never had salmon

Selling school land not OK The Editor, Re. “Land sale is OK’d” (The Tri-City News, Nov. 9). Re. School District 43’s plan to sell a small parcel of land at Coquitlam’s Parkland elementary school to raise funding. We have all had the chance to hear about the funding shortfalls for SD43. The millions that could be raised by selling off public school property could go a long way in making many repairs needed for schools.

But the millions made by selling lands off could be used up in a blink of an eye when divided up by all the buildings, lands, programs and payrolls. The hundreds of millions needed for new schools will not come from such sales. That rests in the hands of the provincial government that has drained its pockets on projects such as the Port Mann Bridge. This is just more of the political foolishness we have to live with every-

Signs for untolled crossing coming, drivers assured Free ‘alternate route’ signage still being designed: province By Jeff Nagel Black Press

Drivers who don’t want to pay the tolls to cross the new Port Mann Bridge are being assured signs will be in place on opening day to direct them to the free alternate route. Transportation ministry officials say the signs are still being designed, so they can’t yet show what they will look like. But spokesperson Max Logan said westbound Highway 1 drivers will see the first warning of the toll bridge ahead at 200 Street and another sign 700 m east of the 176 Street interchange will tell them to take that exit for the South Fraser Perimeter Road (SFPR) if they want to take the untolled crossing. The north Surrey section of the SFPR will also open when the new Port Mann does, Logan said, quickly carrying alternate route drivers to the

Signs will guide motorists looking to avoid the tolls on the new Port Mann bridge to alternate crossings. Pattullo Bridge. Motorists who continue west on Highway 1 will see another sign at 160 Street warning that’s the last exit before the toll bridge. The bridge will open on Dec. 1. Eastbound Highway 1 drivers seeking to avoid tolls will be directed to take the Brunette Avenue off-ramp to Columbia Street, and then over the Pattullo to the SFPR. As with the westbound signage, eastbound ones will indicate a toll bridge ahead and advise of the “alternate

route.” One will be placed 700 m before Brunette and the earlier one will be near Willingdon in Burnaby. The United Boulevard exit will be marked as the last exit before the toll bridge. Logan said smaller “route shield” wayfinding signs will help drivers navigate through B u r n a by a n d N ew Westminster between Highway 1 and the Pattullo Bridge. Another alternate route sign will be placed northbound on Highway 15 (176 Street)

to alert drivers heading to Highway 1 from the U.S. border that the Port Mann is tolled. “As they approach Highway 10, it will let drivers know they have the option of proceeding to Highway 1 or taking Highway 10,”Logan said. Drivers taking 152 Street onto Highway 1 westbound will also be alerted that they’ll be taking a toll bridge. Logan said the signs are mainly to ensure visitors aren’t confused, adding locals should have no trouble deciding on their best route.

The province wants regular bridge users to sign up and get the TReO windshield decal that is automatically detected without the more costly use of license plate cameras and manual image checks that will be used to invoice non-registered vehicles. As an incentive, halfprice tolls — $1.50 for regular cars instead of $3 — apply for a full year for those who register before March 1, when the threemonth discount period for all expires and non-registered users start paying full price. A further incentive gives 20 free crossings to those who sign up before Nov. 30. Dec. 1 will also mark the completion of interchange improvements and highway widening east of the Port Mann Bridge construction, including more than 20 km of new HOV lanes extending to Langley.

Metro Vancouver to jack fines for bad dogs, other parks offences Regional district takes new steps to curb canine chaos By Jeff Nagel Black PRess

Higher fines of up to $1,000 could soon be slapped on dog owners who let their hounds break the rules in Metro Vancouver’s regional parks. The regional district’s board will vote on proposed bylaw changes at the end of this month, which are to apply in Metro’s 22 regional parks, such as Tynehead in Surrey, Campbell Va l l e y i n L a n g l e y and Pacific Spirit in Vancouver, but not municipal parks. The aim is to crack down on aggressive and dangerous dogs that pose a risk to people and other pooches. Park officers will be empowered to order owners to muzzle or leash an out-of-control or dangerous dog, or remove it or ban it altogether — owners who refuse could be fined $1,000. An unleashed dog or one caught in a nodog area can trigger a $500 fine, while failing to pick up your dog’s droppings can set you back $250. Officials say those are maximum penalties that would be applied in extreme cases and officers are likely to stress education and warnings first. “In my personal opinion, I think they should be fined right away,” said Langley City Coun. Gayle Martin, vice-chair of Metro Vancouver’s environment and parks committee. “It’s long overdue.” Many parks already

have offl e a s h fenced d o g zones but Metro is also defining MARTIN trails in some parks where dogs will also be allowed offleash. Some leash-optional trails are to be included in Capilano River, Lynn Headwaters and Iona Beach regional parks, while the rest of the trails would either require leashes or ban dogs altogether. “ We ’ r e t ry i n g t o make everybody happy,” Martin said. The region rejected demands from some wildlife watchers who wanted to ban dogs altogether from Iona Beach, a major migratory bird stopover. Martin said people who don’t want to encounter dogs running off leash should avoid the leash-optional trails in those parks. She said owners will now be expected to ensure their dogs behave appropriately in offleash areas or face enforcement from parks staff. It’s hoped that will rein in the chaotic anything-goes dog interactions in off-leash areas, but Martin conceded that will depend on adequate enforcement. Other bad behaviour in parks will also come with higher fines, which are five to 10 times higher than the old ones. Smoking, damaging park property, setting off fireworks and dumping garbage are among the offences that can also trigger fines of up to $1,000. Liquor consumption, being in a park after hours or creating undue

noise or disturbance is worth $500. The bylaw also gives staff the ability to restrict the emerging use of long boards, kite boards, electric bicycles, as well as the projected rise in motorized wheelchairs, in the name of public safety. Metro officials say they get a mix of public complaints — from those who fear aggressive dogs as well as owners demanding more dog-dedicated park space. jnagel@blackpress.ca

Higher fines could be coming for pet owners who do not ensure their hounds are following the rules when visiting Metro Vancouver parks. Under the proposed rule change, park officers will be empowered to order owners to muzzle, leash or remove a dangerous or out-of-control animal. Owners who refuse could face up to $1,000 in fines.

No schedule changes in SD43 plans Bill 36 has passed but don’t expect calendar changes in the Tri-Cities By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The provincial government is allowing school districts to be more creative with their schedules with a new framework for school calendars. But there are no moves afoot in School District 43 to change the way calendars are organized, such as scheduling more frequent and longer breaks, or moving to year-round schooling. But with the passage of the Bill 36 School amendment act and new regulations now in force, public school boards can now make their own decision on a number of issues. For example, they can set the number and dates of days in session, the number of instruction days, the dates of vacation periods and the dates of non-instructional days, such as professional development days. The Ministry of Education will, however, continue to set the minimum number of instructional hours per school year and districts will be required to consult with the public before finalizing their school calendars. In SD43, trustees have been cautious about adopting different calendar schedules. At a meeting in May, when the changes were proposed, trustees raised various concerns, including how families and sports organizations would be affected. At the time, superintendent Tom Grant said changing the school calendar would have to be a “community engagement” exercise but cautioned that decisions shouldn’t be made for educational reasons because there is no evidence changing the school calendar has educational benefits, except for students with learning challenges. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

One of the first trivia fundraisers hits 20 By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Question: How many fundraising trivia nights has the Terry Fox secondary school music department held? Answer: 19. And you can make it an even 20 this weekend as the school hosts the annual tradition on Saturday evening. The Nov. 17 event, put on by staff, students and parents, is raising money this year for a spring break trip to Portland, Ore. as well as for extracurricular activities throughout the year, such as last month’s field trip to the opera. Participants will be pitted against one another as they put their minds to the test with music and music trivia questions, video and visual rounds, pop culture and even some history. “The players come in all sorts of ages,” said Terry Fox music teacher Ryan Cho. “Some are younger alumni and others are into retirement, so we try to create questions so everyone’s got an equal crack at it. So questions about iPhones are balanced out by history questions.” A special committee of parents is tasked with generating the top-secret list of questions; Cho declined to hint at any of them, saying he’d been sworn to secrecy on pain of death. Prizes up for grabs include tickets to the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and the Vancouver Opera (Magic Flute); a New Year’s Eve dinner and show package at the Red Robinson Show Theatre; a stay in a PoCo Inn and Suites theme room; spa packages and more. “It’s a big games night... and we make it a lot of fun, too,” said Cho.“People sometimes dress up and there are awards for best costume. I think of it as an opportunity for adults to be kids again and have some fun.” • Trivia Night is on Saturday, Nov. 17 at 7 p.m. at the Terry Fox Theatre (1260 Riverwood Gate). Tickets are $20 each and are available by calling 604802-9231 or emailing ccandmm@telus.net. People are encouraged to book in a team of eight but smaller groups and singles can be accommodated. spayne@tricitynews.com

A GOOD READ Deborah Duncan A range of books for children and young people

A

s children’s coordinator of the Coquitlam Public Library, I have the wonderful job of purchasing and reading my choices of all of the incoming children’s books. If only Ann MacCallum’s EatYour Math Homework: Recipes for Hungry Minds had existed when I was young, I may have actually enjoyed the subject! Troubled by Fibonacci strings? Just make snack sticks that illustrate the theory. Frazzled by fractions? Fraction taco chips will get you on your way. Puzzled by polygons and Pi? Never fear, the funny illustrations and simple explanations and tasty snacks will set you straight. My second choice is A Street Through time: A 12,000-Year Walk Through History by Steve Noon. This fantastically illustrated book takes readers on a walk through a street from 10,000 BC to today, showing all of the

changes in the buildings and social change. From a tribe calling on the forest spirits to museums and gyms, the tiny detailed cut-away pictures are fascinating. Explaining complex topics to children is a gift.Younger readers will enjoy Elin Kelsey’s You Are Stardust, a Canadian book which explains how people are linked to nature in the most surprising ways. For fiction fans, there is much to choose from. A Monster Calls was the first ever winner of both the British Carnegie Medal for the text by Patrick Ness and the Kate Greenaway Medal for the illustrations by Jim Kay. This young adult novel packs an emotional punch. Thirteen-year-old Conor is suffering from a recurring nightmare and now some sort of giant tree monster has started call-

ing his name from the yew tree outside. Surely this is just another nightmare? But why are there yew needles on his bedroom floor? The monster has apparently come to tell him stories of all things! He faces the yew monster and his stories bravely, because he is facing a far worse monster, one that the reader only recognizes gradually. The amazing illustrations extend and intensify the story of Conor’s bravery. Highly recommended for young adults and parents alike. Younger readers will enjoy The Encyclopedia of Me by Karen Rivers. Twelve-year-old Tink tells all in this encyclopedia of her year. Many things happen — she loses her BFF, finds a boyfriend, learns more about her family and herself.

The entries range from insightful to hilarious to sad. Rivers has channeled her inner 12-yearold in Tink’s entries as she advises us on books to read, books not to read and even to stop reading the book right now if we don’t like what she has to say. Need advice on living with an autistic brother? How should you react to kids who don’t get being bi-racial? It’s all here. Another winner is Drama by Raina Telgemeier. This graphic novel is a fine follow up to her popular Smile. Telgemeier has again nailed the drama and shifting friendships of middle school. Callie likes Greg, but Greg likes Bonnie and someone else she least suspects likes Callie. In the midst of all of this emotion, the gang is sorting themselves out into the starring roles and backstage support for their school’s musical production. Has Callie bitten off too much? Can she really get a working cannon ready for the big show? Funny and emotional, this is a great graphic read for pre-teen and teen girls, and even for those adults who remember what it was like to be 13.

Access to some recreational trails along the right-of-way may be restricted at times during the completion of this work. The new 247 kilometre, 500 kilovolt transmission line, will mostly parallel an existing 500 kilovolt transmission line between the Nicola Substation near Merritt and the Meridian Substation on Westwood Plateau in Coquitlam. The ILM project is planned to be in-service by January 2015. The ILM project will expand the capacity of the transmission system that brings power from generation sources in the North and Southern Interior so that BC Hydro can continue to deliver clean and reliable energy to homes and businesses in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.

Tech biz grows & gets Traction

One-man operation becomes small biz, then bigger biz, all while working in Port Moody By Laura Melvin Tri-CiTies Chamber of CommerCe

W

hat do the numbers 98,26,500 and 1,000,000 have to do with B.C.? They have everything to do with B.C. and the small businesses that keep our economy thriving. Small business represents 98% of all business in B.C.. Small business created 26,500 new net jobs between 2006 and 2011. Small business employed over a million people in B.C. in 2011. It’s no wonder the provincial government is focusing so heavily on the little guy with its BC Jobs Plan. The goal of the Jobs Plan is to create an environment where new and existing businesses can flourish, investments and spending are fiscally responsible, and jobs are being created for British Columbians. With around 385,000 small businesses operating around the province in 2011, the “little guys”are fundamentally important to growing the B.C. economy and keeping it healthy and strong. Consider, for example, Port Moody’s very own Traction On Demand, a small tech company that implements and customizes Salesforce customer relationship management (CRM) tools. Salesforce operates on the“cloud,”meaning it’s housed solely on the internet without any software or hardware. It provides everything

a company needs to keep track of its customers, follow leads and close sales, and manage its social marketing without needing to install new software or servers. As technology develops and businesses rely more on the Internet to connect with customers, tech companies such as Traction On Demand are becoming increasingly important. The B.C. Jobs Plan has wisely chosen the technology industry as a key sector to focus on. In 2005, Traction On Demand founder and CEO Greg Malpass was a one-man show working out of his home in Klahanie in Port Moody. He was implementing Salesforce, a then little-known tool, for a handful of clients. Word spread about Salesforce and about Greg, and soon he had a steady stream of smaller scale clients. When Greg’s first big job, Canpages, approached him about implementing the CRM tool for more than 600 employees around three years ago, he realized he needed some help. “I guess I accidentally created the company when I brought on a contractor,”he said when asked how Traction On Demand got started. Once it got out that Greg was taking on bigger jobs, his oneman turned two-man show became three, and then four, and then continued to grow until he and Traction On Demand became 30 employees and steadily increasing. He foresees the company easily growing 10 times its current size in the next four years. You might think a tech company that’s growing so quickly would move its offices

to business-heavy areas such as Vancouver or Burnaby. But when asked why the company chose to stay in the Tri-Cities rather than move to Vancouver, Traction’s Michelle Malpass, director of community performance, joked,“Where would we put the boat?” In each of the two Traction On Demand offices along Clarke Street in Port Moody, you’ll find a fully functioning speedboat. The second office, still under construction, also contains a refurbished Air Stream Trailer. Leasing office space large enough to fit the boats and trailer in Vancouver would be extremely expensive and inconvenient. In Port Moody, the Traction team can simply haul the boats to the nearby Reed Point Marina and head out into Burrard Inlet. Quirky as having two boats and a trailer in the office may seem, they actually have a purpose. The speedboats are used every summer to take the team wakeboarding before work, and the Air Stream Trailer is currently being converted into a quiet workspace where employees can code without distractions. As a bonus, the trailer will be wired to record data output to show how productive employees are in the space. Port Moody is more than just comparatively cheap real estate and convenient access to a boat launch to Traction On Demand. With employees traveling from Langley to North Vancouver and everywhere in between, the Tri-Cities are a central hub easily accessible to everyone whether by transit or car. Along with perks like boats and trailers, location plays

into Greg’s mandate to maintain a worklife balance for his employees. What’s interesting about Traction On Demand, aside from its success in the fiercely competitive technology industry, is its work in the community. Traction For Good is a division of the company dedicated to giving back. It makes corporate donations to various charities around the Lower Mainland, employees regularly volunteer as a group for events such as the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s Big Bike ride at Coquitlam Centre, and offer pro-bono Salesforce implementations to non-profit organizations to improve their donor and volunteer data. Whether they stay small or grow large, the B.C. government recognizes that businesses like Traction On Demand are integral to our province’s economy and are important members of the communities in which they’re located. As part of the B.C. Jobs Plan, the provincial government is implementing programs that make the development, operation and investment into small businesses easier.The Small BusinessVenture Capital Program will help attract financing and support job creation for qualifying businesses. The Small Business Accord aims to cut red tape surrounding government-business relations and regulations.The Micro-Business Training Pilot provides business management training for business owners with less than five employees.

Travel tales in 20 slides at PKC By Janis Warren

The Tri-CiTy NeWs

obin Esrock thinks his six-and-a-half minute slideshow for PechaKucha Coquitlam next week will be just a surprise for him as it will be for the audience. The prolific travel writer wants to put 200 photos in the projection and whichever picture pops up will be the story he will tell for the next 20 seconds. “It’s a way to challenge myself,” the Burnaby resident said. “I won’t know what I’ll say on stage until I actually see the image the machine randomly picks.” Luckily, Esrock has got thousands of tales to tell about his adventures in the 107 countries he has visited and reported on over the past decade: From heliyoga in the Rockies and racing cars in Italy to volcano boarding in Nicaragua. His latest epic came after he penned a bucket list for the Globe and Mail, last July 1, about things to do in Canada. Publisher Thomas Allen & Sons approached him to expand the topic and write his first

major book on the Top 100 activities in the 10 provinces and three territories (see a video clip at www. canadianbucketlist.com). “I told them I would only do it if I could actually do these things, like physically experience what Canada has to offer,” the South African native said. “I didn’t want any practical information — it goes out of date the moment it goes into print, like how much things

cost and directions — but I did want it to be a firstperson narrative about this guy who landed this job of being paid to travel and find the best of Canada.” Due out next fall, the book traces Esrock’s yearlong experiences like snorkeling amongst upstreambound salmon in Campbell River and chipping off a piece of iceberg in Newfoundland for a cocktail. “There’s a ton of cool stuff to do in Canada,”he said, adding, “I’m interested in anything you can do that you can’t do anywhere else.” He tends to source online Bucket Listers — baby boomers or empty-nesters who have lots of time and money “and are chasing their best experiences.... Nobody’s really hitting these guys up [for information]. As I went across the country, they were very, very taking to what I was doing and they helped me along tremendously.” As for his international voyages, which have been documented in publications around the globe including The Guardian, Sydney Morning Herald and

For t h e f i r s t faculty concert of the season at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts, soprano Lambroula Pappas wants to take her audience around the world through song. And it wasn’t an easy task to whittle down the selection, she admits. With the help of pianist David Bergeron — who will accompany Pappas on her hour-long show on Saturday — the pair narrowed the operatic pieces to include a variety of mainly European sounds over the past 150 years. A dozen songs will be featured from Spanish, French, Italian, Greek and German composers. But the musicians also thought it was important to throw into the program some Canadian and American modern works, too, from the likes of Denis Gougeon and Amy Beach. “We want to be opera tour guides, showing off the styles of music out there,”Pappas said.

Chicago Tribune, Esrock tends to travel alone. And that can be challenging when it comes to photography. “I realized pretty early on that photos are there to accompany the words,” he said. “If I get too caught up in it then I don’t do the words well. Most of my photos are from a point-and-shoot by me or whoever is around me. Sometimes, I get lucky and get these amazing shots; sometimes I get nothing because somebody has cut off my head.” Still, despite his extensive travels, Esrock regrets he has yet to visit Tibet and Nepal; however, he cites Brazil as his favourite jaunt “and not just because my wife is Brazilian,” he laughed. “I said that before I met her.” • PechaKucha Night Coquitlam Volume 8, an ArtsConnect presentation, runs on Tuesday, Nov. 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam).

On the road with baby By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News

Truth be known, it’s not so hard being on a three-month tour with a baby. Though it may be a little cumbersome at times for the new mom. “It’s been busy for our band and, when you add a baby on top of that, it can really step things up,” New Brunswick musician David Myles said. “My wife has been amazing. She has to carry the load for most of the day and the night but it’s been really nice just being together.” Keeping a routine since the tour started Sept. 3 has been paramount for the young family. They’ve been travelling compact — in a Hyundai Elantra filled with mostly baby gear — while Myles’ bandmates, Kyle Cunjak (upright bass) and Alan Jeffries (guitar) have been hauling the instruments and equipment in another vehicle. And trying to get enough hours of sleep to keep pace with their hectic performance schedule has also been a challenge, too. “It just means that you’ve got to be on all the time,” Myles said, “but I think that’s the case for most work-

We see this as an adventure and we’re not feeling like we’re stuck at all at home, as is the case with other parents on maternity leave.” Recently, the crew wrapped up 18 dates in Saskatchewan and they are now performing at 16 venues across B.C. — including a stop at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre on Saturday —  to promote their latest album, Into The Sun. The fifth studio recording, which earned

Myles the 2012 East Coast Music Association award for Songwriter of the Year, started out as an experimental project, using Bossa nova and Brazilian psychedelic sounds. As the songs took shape, Myles decided to release them to the public “so now my live shows sometimes get billed as African rhythms, which is weird because I usually come up and play blue grass and 1950sinspired soul music.... I think that’s where I’m going with my next album.”

Paintings galore at group show Original works by prominent Tri-City painters Colin Craig, Anna Wagner and Arlene Connolly will be for sale at a Port Coquitlam fall exhibit this weekend. T h e A r t Fo c u s Artists’ Association will host its 19th annual show at Leigh Square Community Arts Village, featuring more than 100 watercolour, acrylic, oil and mixed media pieces. Past president Julie Roberts, a watercolour artist, said about 20 members from the group will display a variety of genres such as portraits,

landscapes, still lifes and abstracts as well as miniature works and art cards. And all the exhibiting artists will be on hand for the event, which will be opened by PoCo Mayor Greg Moore on Friday at 7 p.m. (with a jazz ensemble to entertain) and continues on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. “They really enjoy talking to people and explaining how they did their paintings and what inspired them,” Roberts said of the artists. Besides the fall show,

Art Focus also has a spring show to coincide with the city’s May Days celebrations. And next year, for its 20th anniversary, the group will be taking part in Port Coquitlam’s 100th festivities by painting two murals, to be hung at Leigh Square in February. Roberts said members have been busy painting 40 individual squares that, when complete, will resemble an azalea — PoCo’s official flower — from afar. But on closer look, viewers will notice each artist has painted a

scene within their chosen square. Artist Doris Patko had to get permission to replicate the likeness of PoCo hometown hero Terry Fox from the Terry Fox Foundation in Chilliwack. When Patko got the okay, Fox’s sister, Judith, asked if she too could be part of the centennial art project. “We are so pleased she wanted to join us,” said Roberts, noting Fox’s square will be placed at the top centre of one of the murals. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Fox squeaks past Centaurs on way to semis By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy NewS

The Terry Fox Ravens AAA varsity football squad has made it to the quarterfinals after a nail-biting finish against

the Centennial Centaurs at B.C. Place Stadium on the weekend. Terry Fox, which finished the season in third place in the Lower Mainland’s eastern conference,

downed Centennial 21-20 in the first round matchup. The game was a rematch of last week’s final regular season game, which saw the Ravens best their Tri-City rivals 33-30 in

another tight game. The Port Coquitlam club will now take on western conference club Mt. Douglas at Bear Mountain in Victoria on Friday. A win there would

mean a trip to the semifinals, as the Ravens inch their way to the championship game. But if Terry Fox has its eye on a title, it is facing some tough competition next weekend.

Mt. Douglas is the top team in its division, with a 5-1-0 record, which ties the squad for second in the Lower Mainland. In its last regular season game of the year, Mt.

Douglas dropped New Westminster secondary 43-14 and has had several dominating victories this fall, including a 44-40 win over Terry Fox on Sept. 15. sports@tricitynews.com

Playoffs begin with victory for Vikings Coquitlam club defeates North Surrey 32-0, gets ready for finals The Coquitlam Vikings continued its dominance into the first game of the Vancouver Mainland Minor Football post-season against the North Surrey Eagles on Saturday at Percy Perry Stadium. The first touchdown of the game came off the opening punt, which was run back by Viking kick-returner Nic Greene, who carried the ball all the way back to the Eagle’s end zone. A safety late in the second quarter made it 8-0 for the Coquitlam club at the half. Coquitlam kept up its offensive in the third quarter, when Mos Hassan jumped on a ball and dove into the end zone for a touchdown early in the half. Hassan tied teammate Xavion Fleary for most runs in the game. In the same quarter, Ken Fuoco and Brendan Dieno both recovered Surrey fumbles, while Greene had an interception. When the dust finally settled in the fourth q u a r t e r, C o q u i t l a m walked away with a commanding 32-0 victory over Surrey. The club will now take on cross-town rivals the Coquitlam Raiders next weekend. sports@tricitynews.com

The Coquitlam Raiders began their playoff push on a high note, defeating the South Delta Rams 17-16 at Percy Perry Stadium at Town Centre Park on Saturday. The team is expected to play the Coquitlam Vikings in the finals next weekend.

Ravens win silver, provincial berth in FV tourney Finish Fraser Valley with 6-2 loss to Tamanawis The Terry Fox Ravens may have lost their final game of the Fraser Valley soccer playoffs but the team will walk away with a silver medal and

a berth in the provincial championships later this month. Fox, who started the post-season seeded 14 out of 16 teams, registered upset after upset on the way to the finals, where the Ravens lost 6-2 to top seed Tamanawis secondary

in Newton last Thursday night. To get to the finals, 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 last Monday. The Ravens were not the only local club to have a strong showing the FraserValley playoffs. Charles Best finished the tourney in fourth place, after losing 3-2 in the bronze medal game against Sardis secondary on Thursday night.

The Heritage Woods Kodiaks also lost out on a chance to make it into the top five in their playoff division, losing 2-0 to Enver Creek secondary on Thursday. Centennial also made the post-season tournament, but after winning its first game against
