Buzz on biz The Tri-Cities experienced some modest growth in the number of business licences issued in 2012 and a Canadian retail business group says it’s cautiously optimistic about the year ahead following some difficult years. See page A3 Rame Edwan, barber shop owner (left), and Nabaz Arif say business isn’t bad in Port Coquitlam. The annual summer car show helps bring customers, the streets are clean and safe, and word of mouth brings them customers. For most small businesses, however, 2013 will be a year of slow growth, according to the Retail Council of Canada. DIANE STRANDBERG THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Former teacher pleads guilty to old sex charges
Brushes battle ice bombs Port Mann Bridge to get custom snow sweepers
By Diane Strandberg

THE TRI-CITY NEWS
A teacher whose last job was at Citadel middle school in Port Coquitlam has pleaded guilty to sexually exploiting two young people in Coquitlam during incidents that date back more than a decade. Russell Lance Read entered guilty pleas last month and is expected to be back in B.C. Provincial Court March 18 for sentencing, according to Neil MacKenzie of the Attorney General’s criminal justice branch.
The cables that hold up the Port Mann Bridge will be outfitted with devices to clear snow buildup and prevent a repeat of the falling “ice bombs” incident that terrorized motorists shortly after the bridge opened late last year. The custom snow sweepers are two feet long and consist of a

set of wheels, scrapers and brushes, and will be raised and lowered along the cables during wintry weather to remove any ice and snow buildup. They’re being installed on 152 of the 288 bridge cables that cross the roadway starting this week. Tr a n s p o r t a t i o n Minister Mary Polak said they’ll initially be positioned at the bottom of the cables and be manually winched up to the top and dropped back down to clear snow when required. “It clears off all the snow in a gradual man-

Later, they’ll be positioned at the top of the cables and then dropped down and back up by remote control when needed. “The initial solution may not be that elegant,” Polak said, “but we wanted to make sure we
have a solution for the public.” More than 250 vehicles were reported damaged Dec. 19 by ice that fell from the bridge’s cables, which cross over traffic lanes, unlike the ones on other local suspension bridges. Polak said the sweepers are just one of the preventative solutions
engineers are testing to ensure bridge users are safe from falling snow and ice. Four hydrophobic, silicon-based coatings are being tested to determine which performs best. The intent is to coat all the cables this summer and make snow or ice more likely to slide off. A de-icing solution has also been found that can be sprayed on the bridge cables, although Polak referred to it as more of a “last resort” as it likely means a planned closure of some lanes. see CONTRACTOR, page A4

It’s not 2007 but businesses still making a go of it in the Tri-Cities
Target is hiring for Coquitlam
Businesses in the Tri-Cities follow provincial trends By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News
Taking a break outside their busy Port Coquitlam b a r b e r s h o p, R a m e Edwan and Nabaz Arif are cautiously optimistic about their business for the coming year. Like most small businesses, theirs struggles with escalating costs and increasingly thrifty consumers. Still, they like PoCo’s small-town feel and are pleased with the success of their two-yearold business so far. “Business is OK,” says Edwan, the owner of the Shaughnessy Street barber shop. Then, looking around at the fogenshrouded streetscape, he said, “You have everything you need [in PoCo].” He’s proud of his shop that draws customers from Coquitlam and Maple Ridge, and his colleague isn’t above a little spontaneous salesmanship. “We do families, and kids, everybody,”Arif said. It’s that kind of attention to business that may mean the difference between staying afloat or succumbing to an increasingly challenging business climate. According to Mark Startup, vice-president of the Retail Council of Canada, the pre-2008 years of robust sales and profits have been replaced by tighter profit margins and a more competitive business climate, and 2013 is expected to be a year of modest growth. “We’re not going backwards, we’re certainly not growing by leaps and bounds, like we were in the pre-2008 period,” Startup said. Last year saw some growth in the number of business licences issued in Port Coquitlam and Port Moody, with a slight reduction in Coquitlam, although the region’s largest city is still waiting for some business owners to pay their fees, which
A popular American retailer will hire up to 200 staff when it opens this spring at Coquitlam Centre mall. Target is now interviewing for“team leaders” and“store team members” — sales floor staff, cashiers and logistics — for its space, previously occupied by Zellers. Target spokesperson Lisa Gibson said the company has guaranteed interviews with all the Zellers employees but she noted,“Our agreement with Zellers is a real estate transaction and did not involve the transfer of fixtures, inventory or employees. Our goal is to hire the best retail team in Canada and in order to do so we need the flexibility to interview interested candidates.” Target plans to launch 18 stores in B.C. in former Zellers locations early this year, including eight in the Lower Mainland. To apply, visit www. target.ca/careers. DIANE STRANDBERG/ThE TRI-cITy NEwS
Some spaces remain unleased but others house thriving concerns as a variety of entrepreneurs work hard to stay afloat in still tough economic times.
Business licences issued Coquitlam PoCo Port Moody Notes:
2011 6,046 3,117 2,483

could account for the reduction at the time The Tri-City News went to press. And this year’s numbers are hard to predict because of the new Intermunicipal Business Licence that was implemented on Jan. 1. Startup said the TriCities is in line with the rest of B.C., where independent retailers are seeing modest gains in sales
offset by higher costs due to inflation or increased transportation expenses. But he noted, “It becomes very challenging to generate a net profit on a modest increase in total sales.” While in the past, retailers may have demanded year-on-year hikes in sales and revenue, now they are adjusting to the “new normal,” Startup said. “Retailers
are now seeing no or very little growth in their total retail sales and they are quite happy to achieve those results.” One of the issues retailers faced in 2012 was a boost in cross-border shopping but — surprisingly to some — the phenomenon didn’t result in fewer dollars being spent in B.C. More people took day trips across the border to purchase goods, Startup said, but there wasn’t a huge increase in overnight stays, which allows shoppers to bring back more without paying customs fees. “Cross-border shopping is on the rise. It doesn’t mean that there is a reduction in total spending in B.C. directly as a result of the number of dollars that people are spending across the border.”
But he noted that every business is different and it’s difficult to predict success or failure because there are so many factors involved. Some do better than others, some are more adept at adjusting costs or finding unique ways to attract customers, while others have to deal with fluctuating commodity prices. “Have you seen the price of coffee lately?” Startup said. “There are some stores, companies that are trying to recover from sales reductions in the 20% to 50% number from 2008, and you have some stores that have been able to generate the same sales in 2012 as compared to 2008 and feel good about it. And in other cases we are seeing rapid and
atypical growth in some companies, beyond the average consumption,” he said. Businesses best poised to operate in such a challenging environment, Startup said, are those that have a strategic plan, are innovative and open to new ideas, and pay attention to the details, such as keeping a lid on costs. Meanwhile, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business has this week released its red tape report cards and has declared Jan. 21 to 25 Red Tape Awareness Week. CFIB gave the federal government a B+ and the B.C. government an A for reducing regulations that affect business, among other things. The full report is available at www.cfib.ca. email@example.com

Contractor is on the hook for bridge brushes continued from front page
The cable sweepers are being tested at Cypress Bowl and engineers say they should glide smoothly along each cable without damaging the cable sheath. They’re to be used as soon as snow starts to fall and ongoing inspections will gauge how soon cables must be brushed again. Polak was unable to provide a cost estimate but said the bridge contractor will pay the entire bill, not taxpayers. Polak praised contractor Kiewit/Flatiron for its “astonishing effort” in working to quickly find a fix. “They have put their top people on this — it’s been all hands on deck.” The so-called ice bombs incident was a major black eye for the toll bridge, centrepiece of the new $3.3-billion Port Mann Highway 1 project, just weeks after it officially opened. Inadequate de-icing of the bridge deck was also blamed for a subsequent 40-vehicle crash on Jan. 3. “Over the last month,

Weekend detours at United/Mary Hill Drivers can expect some detours at the United Boulevard and Mary Hill Bypass intersection this weekend and next as part of the Port Mann/ Highway 1 Improvement Project. The traffic pattern change will mean most routes near the intersection will be closed. Access from Highway 1 and United Boulevard eastbound to the Mary Hill Bypass will be maintained. The temporary lane reductions are needed to install the girders on the new structure that will connect the Mary Hill Bypass to Highway 1 westbound. Detour routes will be well signed but drivers are reminded to use caution. The closures will be in place from Friday, Jan. 25 to Sunday, Jan. 27 and from Friday, Feb. 1 to Sunday, Feb. 3. They will last from 8:30 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Friday nights, 8:30 p.m. to 9 a.m. Saturday nights and 8:30 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Sunday nights.
Give feedback on our tree retention bylaw The City of Port Moody has several policies and bylaws that protect our natural environment. One of these is the City’s Tree Retention Bylaw which regulates the retention of trees on public and private property and outlines conditions when a tree removal permit is required. We want to know how satisfied residents are with the current Tree Retention Bylaw, and to determine how much community support there would be for regulating tree removal on private property. Fill out the survey at www.portmoody.ca and let us know what you think. The deadline for survey submissions is February 28, 2013.

Read had been investigated by teacher college continued from front page
One of the charges is related to offences between July 1998 and February 2000 in Coquitlam, Victoria, Ladner and Vancouver, MacKenzie said, while the second sexual exploitation charge is for offences that took place between January 2001 and June 2003 in Coquitlam with a second victim. Details of the offences are limited because of a publication ban to protect the victims but MacKenzie said that in one case, Read also pleaded guilty to administering a stupefying or overpowering drug with the intent to commit sexual exploitation. This is not the first time Read’s actions as a teacher have been the subject of inquiry. In 2009, Read was suspended from teaching and given a 10-year ban from re-

certifying by the former B.C. College of Teachers (now the B.C. Teacher Regulation Branch). Records obtained by The Tri-City News show he was investigated by the college in 2008 for incidents between 2002 and 2004, which he agreed constituted professional misconduct. They included referring to students as “Grade 12 babes” in an email, passing on information about the Wicca religion to a student at her workplace and making inappropriate jokes or references to students while employed as a middle school teacher. The school isn’t named in the disciplinary report. In earlier incidents between 1979 and 1983, Read was found to have given a young female the drug amyl nitrate while he was a teacher at a First Nations band school.
A webinar by Dan Siegel will be presented on “Educating the Whole-brain Child.” This presentation is a prelude to a parent education session featuring Siegel planned for Feb. 21, the details of which

SAR mourns Rollie Webb Webb known for training many other volunteers By Sarah Payne The Tri-CiTy NeWs
Coquitlam Search and Rescue is mourning the loss of a friend and colleague who was walking his dog in Anmore last week when he was hit and killed by a truck. Roland Webb, 37, had been an active member of the Coquitlam SAR group for more than 10 years, and before that he served with search and rescue teams on Salt Spring Island, in Surrey and Lion’s Bay. For the past 18 years, Webb worked as a superintendent for emergency management for the BC Ambulance Service. Dwight Yochim, a search manager for Coquitlam SAR, said Webb had put more than half the team through its Ground Search and Rescue training and often took new recruits under his wing. “It seemed to be what he was known for,”Yochim said. Webb was an active member of Coquitlam SAR’s Mountain Rescue program and was recently certified as a member of the Helicopter Rescue team. Webb was also a fixture at the BC Bike Race series, where he was the course medical manager, and was known to volunteer to provide medical training whenever it was necessary. “He really went out of his way to make sure everyone had the necessary skills to save lives,”Yochim said.
Coquitlam SAR member Roland Webb, 37, was killed when struck by a truck while walking his dog last week in Anmore. “That’s probably the most ironic thing — he made sure others had the ability to save lives but we couldn’t save his.” Tributes to Webb, known as Rollie to family and friends, poured in on the Coquitlam SAR’s website from colleagues, volunteers and even people he helped rescue. “I’ll never forget Rollie and his kind heart,” said Leena Lousley, who was rescued by Coquitlam SAR in October 2006. “On that cold and scary day, the whole team was amazing but Rollie stood out. He was able to calm me down and eventually made me laugh. In the helicopter, he made me feel safe even though the doors were open. It’s heartbreaking that this happened but I am very happy I got to meet this incredible human being and experience his loving, caring personality.” Coquitlam SAR remem-
bered Webb as a driving force behind many team projects to improve and expand its rescue capabilities, always looking to learn and grow his own and others’ skills. And they remembered fondly Webb’s fraught relationship with the team’s all-terrain vehicle, which he broke on several occasions (once even requiring a helicopter retrieval). At the group’s last Christmas party, they “honoured” him with the “Rollie Transportation Award.” And while Webb was a tireless volunteer, Yochim said his friend’s greatest passion was his children, Abbie and Ethan. “His kids meant everything to him,”Yochim said, adding they were always
part of the team’s public events, helping to decorate floats and trucks for parades. Webb also leaves behind his partner, Helena, his ex-wife Tracey, his brother Sean, who’s an officer in the Vancouver Police Department, and his father. A funeral for Webb will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at the Our Lady of the Assumption Church, 3141 Shaughnessy St., Port Coquitlam. • Coquitlam RCMP continue to investigate the crash on East Road in Anmore and are asking any potential witnesses who haven’t spoken yet with investigators to contact Cpl. Richard O’Rourke or Const. Halewaood at 604-945-1550. email@example.com

TransLink vehicle levy back on Metro mayors’ agenda Tolls & carbon tax are possible longterm sources By Jeff Nagel Black Press
Lower Mainland mayors are once again pursuing a yearly levy on every vehicle registered in Metro Vancouver as a short-term solution to TransLink’s financial challenges. A car levy has been on the books as a legal option since TransLink was formed but the province has blocked its actual use three times — once when the NDP was still in power in 2001 and twice more in the past four years under the BC Liberals. Now, Metro mayors — increasingly frustrated with Victoria and insistent that fares, gas taxes and property taxes can’t be raised any higher — will try again. “There’s only one thing not tapped out and that’s the vehicle levy,” said Belcarra Mayor Ralph Drew. “We have no other logical place to go,” said Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan, who estimates TransLink is short about $150 million to $175 million a year to sustain current service levels, let alone find billions more

One precondition CY for any new deal with the province, CMYboth Fassbender and Corrigan K said, is that it come with governance reform of TransLink that puts mayors back in charge of setting spending priorities, not just signing off on contentious tax hikes. A vehicle levy was last proposed — and shot down — in 2009. It would have raised $150 million a year by charging an average of $120 per vehicle. “You need to look at something you can implement quickly,” Fassbender said, adding that a levy could be replaced once a long-term source like road pricing arrives. firstname.lastname@example.org

PICTURE THIS adrian raeside
chool District 43 superintendent Tom Grant’s roll-upyour-sleeves, everyone-work-together approach to whittling down a shocking $7.5-million deficit may actually get the job done. Education funding is both fluid and political, and with a provincial election in the offing, there could be an injection of cash to offset some of these cost overruns. But these potential fixes don’t absolve the trustees serving students, parents and taxpayers in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra of the responsibility to ask some tough questions — including of themselves. Last May, those nine elected officials passed a budget rich with program expansion and staff thanks to a modest surplus plus promising student numbers and revenue projections — and they did so unanimously and with little to no public discussion. Now, those same nine people find themselves and our community’s public schools in a much tighter financial situation with no rainy day fund to help. Some of the questions they should ask include: • Should the district rely on fees foreign students pay to attend school here? • What happened to 223 missing students? • Do better controls need to be in place to prevent such large financial mistakes in the future? Finally, and most crucially, they should ask themselves: What did we do wrong? While on one hand, School District 43 could be congratulated for its non-adversarial approach to school business compared to other B.C. school districts, where divisive politics can hamper progress, the united front — presented, at least, at public board meetings — gives rise to fears that not everyone is paying as close attention as they should and if, everyone agrees, then something could go amiss. Last week, it was CUPE Local 561 president Dave Ginter who revealed that the emperor wore no clothes when he pointed out that it was inaccurate calculations — not, as Coquitlam Trustee Brian Robinson tried to claim, provincial spending on advertising — that resulted in the deficit. Coquitlam Teachers’ Association president Teresa Grandinetti followed up with a similar critique, although somewhat muted because it’s mostly substitute teachers who will be affected by the cuts. Still, it was a rare dark cloud of dissension for a public body where everyone seems to agree, regardless of the degree to which doing so stretches credulity.
Smart meter deniers’ last stand (in tinfoil hats) BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA he news was trumpeted with alarm here on Vancouver Island, which along with the Gulf Islands is the heartland of tinfoil-hat opposition to BC Hydro smart meters. Of the 140,000 power customers who didn’t have a wireless meter by the end of the year, many have simply refused. Now, BC Hydro has sent letters informing them“we can no longer delay the installation of a new meter at your home.” “StopSmartMetersBC”sent out a panicky email advising its resistance movement to brace against“storm trooper tactics”from BC Hydro staff, and urging phone and fax attacks on their local MLAs’ offices. “Anger and outrage should be expressed, in a quiet way, so that we don’t sound hysterical, but people are being threatened, police called, etc.,” the anonymous email helpfully suggests.
BC Hydro has also confirmed what I told you a few months ago. Those bogus locks, chicken wire cages and important-looking signs that were sold like modern-day snake oil have no legal effect to prevent the utility from working on its own equipment. These obstacles to inspection have been and continue to be removed, along with dangerous grow op bypasses and fiddled mechanical meters. The technical arguments against wireless meters have been demolished. False news reports and website claims still circulate but no fires have been attributed to the installation of 1.7 million wireless meters in B.C. About 1,200 faulty meter bases have also been replaced at BC Hydro’s expense, and as crude power-theft bypasses have been removed, the incidence of electrical fires, already rare, has dropped substantially. Another popular myth is increased electricity bills.Yes, if your bypass is removed, your bill will go up. Like gas pumps, power meters are required by federal law to be accurate. Which brings us back to Team Tinfoil, which has been sold a cascading series of fantastic

tales about the effect of wireless signals that are already ever-present in all modern communities. A Toronto-based expert group called Bad Science Watch has tackled claims of“electromagnetic hypersensitivity”head-on. I highly recommend its 10-page report and qualifications at www.badsciencewatch.ca. In plain language, with references to the best available scientific studies, it describes the double-blind tests that prove people who claim this sensitivity are not actually able to detect when they are or are not being exposed to wireless signals. No X-Men candidates have come forward. It also exposes key“activists”in Canada. The most prominent is Magda Havas, an associate professor at Trent University who has “developed a career denouncing the safety of low-frequency electromagnetic radiation.”She gives speeches, promotes her book and has worked with one David Stetzer to promote an “EMF filter”to sell to those who insist they feel what science shows they don’t. Havas has appeared on TV“news”shows
with“activist-entrepreneur”Kevin Byrne. His website appears to be a hub of cell tower and smart meter scare reports but it’s interspersed with product pitches for EMF Solutions Canada, of which Byrne is coincidentally president. Then there’s“entrepreneur-activist”Rob Metzinger, president of something called Safe Living Technologies Inc. He doesn’t run a lurid scare website but he has appeared on CBC and CTV as some sort of authority. (The main hazard emanating from TVs these days is bad information.) As the election approaches, a fight is gearing up between the NDP and the BC Green Party for the ignorant, superstitious and angry vote. The Greens in particular have damaged their credibility in a desperate bid to quiet their own tinfoil-chapeau wing. There are bozo eruptions ahead. I’ll have more on that in a future column.

The Editor, Re. “$7.5M in the hole, SD43 looks for cuts” (The Tri-City News, Jan. 18). I am very concerned about the $7.5-million deficit in School District 43. Having read your article and reading the responses of the seven school trustees, it appears none of them knows what they are talking about or even know what had hit them. Were they sleeping? It
only shows how incompetent they are. None of the trustees who answered The TriCity News’ questions gave any straight answers. This is a responsible position and should be taken seriously. Failure to do their work will only cost taxpayers more money. The whole lot should be fired. Roger Mehdirata, Coquitlam
continued from front page
The Tri-City News attempted to ask all nine board of education trustees about School District 43’s deficit. The respon ses of the seven who responded are below:
Today, trustees are still trying to figure out what happened and how it will impact next year’s district operating budget. According to Grant, the district found out after its student head count in the fall that there were 223 “We probably should ask fewer middle and high “It came late in the year and more questions.

That’s a big worry.” here and reduced rental and investment income — another $1.3 million. The district is also spending $3 million in salaries that are not funded by the Ministry of Education. But Grant said some of the overspending is due to an increase in elementary school students, who require smaller classes, plus program expansion to boost achievement, support special needs and create smaller classes in alternative programs such as CABE (Coquitlam Alternative Basic Education), plus addition of new programs. “The accountability rests Next week, Grant will “I don’t think it’s a matter of plead his case with deputy on the board to be fiscally fault, I think this is a matter education minister James responsible and accountGordon, he told the board. of numbers.

Entrepreneurs don’t do it alone THE fAllouT
The Editor, Re. “We must educate kids about entrepreneurship” (Opinion, The TriCity News, Jan. 18). I had to chuckle about Laura Jones’ column on teaching kids entrepreneurship.

Jones and her mom had any discussion with the kids where those goodies they were “selling” came from.

NW, Langley deficits
Coquitlam school district isn’t the only one in B.C. facing a deficit. The issue of overspending has been front and centre in two other school districts, New Westminster and Langley, and both dealt with the situation in very different ways: • Four years ago, Langley School District found itself with a $13.5-million operating deficit and was required to pay it back over five years. The issue was not without controversy as the superintenden t was fired, the board chair resigned and the district went through three secretary treasurers before the situation was resolved with the payback plan lion a year (almost complete). Auditor of $3.3 milGeneral John Doyle was also brought in to recommend internal controls.

It has been seeking public input into how to make the cuts. The board is divided, with some manding the intervention of the auditor trustees degeneral.

‘Miscalculation is what it was’: Grant By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News
Superintendent Tom Grant is predicting “shortterm pain” for School District 43 as it grapples with a projected $7.5-million deficit and said next year’s budget could include staff cuts if the district can’t rid itself of the shortfall by June. “We’re going to look at everything and I think we can make a huge dent in coming up with the $5 million,” Grant told The Tri-City News. “What we don’t have is certainty about that and we will be working with the [provincial education] ministry to look at options going further from that. “If we don’t reach our target, we’ll take a conservative approach to the next budget, which will probably mean reductions at all staffing levels,”he said.“I’d rather not have to do that.” The budget situation is a far cry from last year, when the board of education passed a budget with $270 million in spending, including new programs and more teachers. But Grant said the amount of money the district has to cut amounts to just .02% of the total budget and can be done if everyone works together. “We’ll get there,” he said. “We’ll get some short-term pain and I strongly believe
in this district in what it can do in the area of teaching and learning.” But he TOM GRANT conceded the district may have to come up with other options, including the possibility of running the deficit. This week, he hopes to meet with the Ministry of Finance in Victoria to talk about solutions. Grant, who is now acting secretary-treasurer after Rick Humphreys resigned due to medical and personal reasons, said the district’s financial troubles began with the revelation that 223 fewer students enrolled in SD43 schools than projected. Asked to explain, Grant said the district “lost” about 80 students but another 140 that were expected “just didn’t show up” — meaning SD43’s projections were way off. As well, an additional $200,000 in expected holdback funds — money the province keeps until enrolment numbers are confirmed — didn’t materialize, leaving the district $1.7 million short in revenue. To make matters worse, it was discovered that numerous other revenue and expense projections were wrong. For example, sub-
stitute teaching costs were about $300,000 to $400,000 higher than planned due to illness and leaves permitted for professional development, and international education fees [money foreign students pay to go to school here] were $800,000 less than expected. “These are all trend lines on four months of data. They can all improve over the next six months,” Grant said, adding later: “Miscalculation is what it was. When you add it up, it’s less than 1% on the overall budget.” Among the short-term fixes proposed to deal with the deficit is a reduction in supply budgets and discretionary spending, and leaving some positions in staff development and IT unfilled. But Grant said the district will be looking at other expenditures as well. For example, enrolment numbers for the winter/spring semester will be examined to see if adjustments in teaching staff can be made. Although optimistic overall, Grant was candid about what failure to achieve these targets could mean, including budget reductions and a running a deficit next year. “We will be in a restraint budget for next year and part of that will be reduced staffing levels across the district in every area.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Coquitlam’s plans for outdoor pools change CCAC set for an expansion as part of city strategy By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News
Two Coquitlam outdoor pools will close after a city study showed they’re too expensive to run given the number of people who use them. This week, city council unanimously adopted the Aquatics Infrastructure and Services Strategy, which calls for Rochester Pool and the Blue Mountain Park wading pool to shut down. Lori M a c K a y, Coquitlam’s general manager of parks, recreation and culture services, said outdoor pools in B.C. and Canada are becoming a thing of the past. And over the past decade, only a handful of new, stand-alone outdoor pools have been opened — the most recent one in New Westminster. Coquitlam is into a “new generation of aquatic facilities” that offers a better return for the tax dollar, MacKay said. As well, the city has to position itself as 100,000 more people will move to Coquitlam over the next 30 years. Prepared by city parks
managers and consultants, the high-level strategy for Coquitlam involves $60 million in new and upgraded aquatic facilities over the next 15 years such as: • building a new indoor pool on Burke Mountain; • converting City Centre Aquatic Complex (CCAC) into a destination pool that is able to host regional and provincial swim meets, with an adjoining outdoor recreation amenity; • updating Spani Pool, at Mundy Park, with an outdoor leisure pool and/ or spray deck and water features; • replacing the spray decks at Burns Park (already in this year’s budget) and upgrading the spray decks at Town Centre and Blue Mountain parks; • and adding more spray decks at neighbourhood parks. Recreation manager Joyce Fordyce said the aquatics blueprint is a “flexible guide” and can be changed at any time. Currently, there are no pressing demands for infrastructure improvements. City council referred the strategy to its 2014’19 capital budget process. Asked by Coun. Terry

O’Neill about the potential partnership between the city and the YMCA, which is scouting the city for land to build a new community centre and pool, Fordyce said if it were to be constructed in Burquitlam, it would take the pressure off Poirier
and Spani as both are close to capacity. And it would allow the city to further stretch the strategy by two or three years, she said. The Aquatics Infrastructure and Services Strategy was conducted in conjunc-
tion with the city of Port Coquitlam, which gave more of a regional context to aquatic services, Fordyce said (Port Moody opted not to join). At PoCo’s Hyde Creek rec centre, the pool has seven to 10 years left before it reaches its maximum capacity, she said. Although Coun. Mae Reid didn’t vote against it, she was the only councillor critical of the report, saying outdoor pools are valuable to neighbourhoods. “Kids need to learn how to swim, especially in coastal communities,” she said. Last year, Reid voted against the city tempo-

rarily closing Rochester and turning it into a sand pit during the summer. The 45-year-old pool in Maillardville has been failing since 2007 and, in 2011, classes were shuffled to Spani and Eagle Ridge outdoor pools because of its poor condition. City staff said it would cost $170,000 to repair the concrete basin or $4 million to rebuild it. With a depth ranging from 2.5 to five feet, Rochester was mostly used by young children and families. As well, with operational costs averaging $77,400 a year and usage low, the pool was heavily subsidized by the city, with taxpay-
ers’ cost per visit ranging from $11.05 to $14.60. Reid also didn’t like closing the Blue Mountain wading pool, saying it’s a popular summer destination for moms with toddlers and pre-schoolers. As for CCAC, which is halfway through its life cycle, Reid said it will be located across from the terminus of the Evergreen Line, which is expected to be running by the summer of 2016. “When that pool is rebuilt, it has to be part of a large development. That property is much too expensive to just have a pool on it.” email@example.com

By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News
conversation on bullying that reached emotional heights and galvanized a community into action following the death of Port Coquitlam teen Amanda Todd is being re-opened with a five-part series on bullying prevention beginning tomorrow (Thursday). The Tri-Cities joint Family Court and Youth Justice Committee is launching the series in the hopes of educating the community about new ways to consider and deal with bullying. Joan Isaacs, a member of the group, which deals with family court and youth justice issues through research, education and advocacy, said the first night of the series will continue where the last session on Oct. 24, 2012 left off. “We know there were 60-some questions that weren’t answered. We felt there was more to talk about,” Isaacs said, referring to the meeting held at Terry Fox secondary that drew an overflow crowd of about 400 people. Although it was planned months before Todd committed suicide after posting a harrowing video about bullying, the timing, so soon after the CABE student’s death, generated a huge response. On that night, just two weeks after the 15-yearold took her own life, participants watched the Red Cross film How to Help: A Youth Perspective on Bullying and quizzed panel members about the issue of bullying. Some even talked about their own experiences.” It was very emotional,”Isaacs recalled. Her group came away with the idea that more should be done so it planned the five-part series extending from February to March; the kick-off will be an oppor-

New year, new attitude? Take the challenge Beware – laziness and lack of motivation can scuttle your healthy resolutions
t’s a new year and now it’s time for a new lifestyle. Black Press has partnered with Kin’s Farm Market to launch the Green Fighters Challenge in 13 Lower Mainland communities — including the Tri-Cities — which will follow participants over several months as they change their life and get healthy. One person will be chosen from each participating community to make a change and win prizes. The grand prize will be a cruise for two from Cruise Experts. It will be awarded at the end of the 13-week contest. However, one Green Fighter will win a prize each week during weekly challenges. But it’s not just the participants who will be able to win. Canadian Tire will provide prizes for readers as well as the challengers as part of their commitment to healthy living, and you are encouraged to check out the Green Fighters website to follow the participants’ progress and share your thoughts about how you are eating better and getting fit yourself for 2013. The Canadian Cancer Society has noted that changing just one thing about your life, whether it’s eating more vegetables or quitting smoking, can reduce your cancer risk. Kin’s Farm Market is pleased to be able to provide fruits and vegetables to the participants in the Green Fighters Challenge, as well as produce to every customer that will put you on the road for achieving your New Year’s resolution and a healthier lifestyle in general. The Green Fighters site will regularly include recipes, special offers and tips for making a change, whether it’s to your diet or fitness level. 2013 is shaping up to be a year of change for UBC student Ben Duenas. After spending most of his days during the last few years in a
UBC Chemical Engineering Student Ben Duenas plans to get in shape and meet new people in 2013 as part of Kin’s Farm Market’s Green Fighters Challenge. classroom, the chemical engineering student is looking to make some changes in his life. “While going to school full time, I didn’t have time to exercise,” said Duenas. “I’ve made it my New Year’s resolution to get out there and try new things.” The 23-year-old, who was cooling down after a short workout at Bear Creek Park in Surrey, also wants to rev up his social life. “I’ve been sitting in class far too long, so I just signed up for jiu-jitsu (a Japanese martial art) and ballroom dancing,” Duenas said. “I hope to meet new people outside the classroom.” For Sukhmani Pannu, also 23, getting in shape and staying in shape has become her goal for this year. She has already made some
changes to the way she eats. “I found that I used to have a meal around 6:30 or 7 p.m. every night, but now I eat earlier, around 5 p.m. and then have a small salad.” The strategy seems to be working, Pannu said, as she’s already dropped 20 pounds. A recent poll of Lower Mainland residents, however, shows Duenas and Pannu may be in the minority. Results of an Ipsos Reid survey (commissioned by Fitness Town Surrey) released last month indicate just 14 per cent of people actually made New Year’s fitness-related resolutions last year. And of those who did, about two-thirds stuck to them.
Those who abandoned their healthy plans listed lack of motivation, laziness, and lack of time as their top reasons for abandoning their good intentions. When asked what would motivate them to continue with keep-fit resolutions, survey respondents said having more time would help, as would personal support from a trainer or nutritionist, or having someone to work out with. Others people said more money – to buy equipment or for a gym membership – might prompt them to exercise, as would a better schedule (such as a more flexible work timetable) or having a regular schedule or fitness program created for them. When asked how often they engage in sports or other exercise, just 20 per cent of poll respondents said they exercised between five and seven times a week, while 40 per cent said two to four times a week was average for them. About four per cent said they never exercise. Of those who do exercise, almost 70 per cent agreed they do so to lose weight. Also included in the survey results were questions about eating during the Christmas holidays. While 71 per cent admit they overindulged, 63 per cent said they felt guilty about it. Other figures indicated the holiday season and its overabundance of turkey dinners and desserts have had a clear impact on the urge to get back on a healthy path. Fifty-five per cent of those polled said they were inspired to get fit right before the holidays, an impulse that dropped by about 11 per cent during the holidays. However, more than 73 per cent of respondents said they were wanted to get fit right after the holiday season. For Pannu, it doesn’t matter what the statistics show, she said she just wants to get healthy – and look good. “I want to be a fitness trainer, so I need to have a six-pack,” she said, laughing.

Read up on lunar new year fun G
ung Hay Fat Choy — Feb. 2 is the start of Chinese New Year. Also known as the Lunar NewYear, this festival is celebrated in many Asian countries, including Japan, Korea andVietnam. This year, we begin the Year of the Snake. One of the joys of living in Canada is that we can celebrate the festivals of many different cultures, whether we were born into them or not. And what better way to learn about this festival than to read about it with your children? Recently there have been many excellent picture books that tell the story of the Lunar NewYear to young and not-so-young children. Look for books that present the information about the NewYear in an entertaining manner. Hiss! Pop! Boom!: Celebrating Chinese New Year by Tricia Morrissey showcases each New Year’s tradition or custom with beautiful watercolour illustrations by Kong Lee. Similarly, Chinese NewYear by Alice K. Flanagan explores the history, customs and symbols as well as some of the changes in the traditions over time. Svetlana Zhurkina’s childlike illustrations add interest to each page. For the very young, have a look at D is for Dragon Dance by Ying Chang Compestine, a charming alphabet book
using Chinese NewYear’s customs to illustrate the letters. Children who enjoy pop-up books will like Lucky NewYear by Mary Man-Kong with its interactive pages. For older children, take time to enjoy Moonbeams, Dumplings and Dragon Boats, with its festival lore, traditional stories, tasty recipes and interesting activities for this and other festivals throughout the year. If you want to learn about the Chinese zodiac and the fables behind the naming of the years, have a look at The Great Race by Dawn Casey.This story, with its creatively stylized folk art, is a retelling of the ancient legend about the Jade King, who decides to name the calendar after the animals. He holds a race to determine the order of the animal years. The story is also retold in The Cat’s Tale: Why theYears are Named for Animals. In this book, the cat, Mao, takes it upon himself to correct his little girl’s version of the story and retell it his own way. To get an overview of the meaning of each animal’s place in the zodiac, read The Dragon’s Tale and other Animal Fables of the Chinese Zodiac; each page has a charming fable about one of the animals. As well as books that give us information, there are many picture books that simply tell a story about children and their excitement as they pre-

Henry, Alice are just like us: writer By Janis Warren THe Tri-CiTy NeWs
Clockwise from top: Adults, greasers, nerds and pink ladies from Rydell High will be singing and dancing in Treehouse Theatre’s production of Grease! at Pinetree secondary school.
Summer nights this winter By Janis Warren
THe Tri-CiTy NeWs
or Richard Chapman, it has been a serendipitous journey. Last September, the 16-year-old Grade 11 student at Coquitlam’s Pinetree secondary won an ensemble role in the upcoming production of Grease! Chapman was over the moon to be cast in the Treehouse Theatre presentation and told his mechanics teacher about Greased Lightnin’, one of the musicals most memorable scenes that centres around a wreck turned into a roadster. “I wanted that scene to be great,”he said. With the help of other senior students, Chapman stripped down a scrap vehicle, rebuilt the front end and painted it black with orange flames. Two months later, Musical Theatre 11/12 drama specialist Natalee Fera tapped Chapman to play the character of Kenickie, Danny Zuko’s best friend, Rizzo’s main squeeze and — most importantly — the owner of the Greased Lightnin’ car.“It was just magic,” Chapman recalled. “I was thrilled. It was like it was always meant to be.”
Grease! will be special, too for other Rydell High cast members like Avidor Manor and Robyn Crawford, who will play Danny and Rizzo in their Grade 12 year. Manor, 17, has been performing on stage since he was in Grade 8 at Maple Creek middle school. Then, he was in Anne of Green Gables. At Pinetree, he portrayed Mr. Sowerberry in Oliver! and last year was in 13 The Musical. Manor has been taking singing lessons privately for the past two months to tone up his vocal techniques for Grease! “It’s very nerve-wracking being on stage and having all those eyes look at you because you’re in the front with Sandy,” Manor said, adding, “The main thing is I make sure I know my lines.” Crawford, 17, is a little more confident about her appearance as she has an extensive background in the performing arts. At Pinetree, she played the Artful Dodger in Oliver! and Lucy in 13 The Musical; with CAPA, a Coquitlam dance school, Crawford was in Seussical and All Shook Up. She also teaches dance for the city of Coquitlam and has taken singing lessons for two years. Treehouse Theatre’s Grease! is a toned-down ver-
sion of the 1978 film that offers more PG content for a younger crowd, she said. As well,“it’s more of an ensemble show, not just all Sandy and Danny,” Crawford said. “There’s more between Rizzo and Kenickie. You see more with all of the couples than in the movie.” As for Cidney Wallesch, the opportunity to portray Sandy Dumbrowski is a dream come true. “When I got picked to play Sandy, I was like ‘Oh. My. God. I have to smarten up,’” the Grade 11 student said. The 16-year-old also has a varied resume, having acted with Theatrix and taking vocal classes for the past two years. In Grade 9, she was a stagehand in Oliver! at Pinetree and last year was part of the ensemble in 13 The Musical. Now, she’s eager to showcase her talent in the leading female role. “I’m excited to show everybody what I’m made of,” she said.“I love being on stage, not behind it.” • Grease! runs at Pinetree secondary school (3000 Pinewood Ave., Coquitlam) Feb. 7 to 9 and Feb. 14 to 16 at 7:30 p.m. Advance tickets at $10/$7 are available at the school office. email@example.com
Meet Henry and Alice Lane. When playwright Michele Rimi first introduced them at the Vancouver Fringe Festival in 2002, the couple was trying to rev up its 25-year marriage in a swanky hotel room. Fast forward a decade and the pair are at each other’s throats again, this time about the state of their finances beside a campfire in the woods. Henry has lost his job and, as he spills the beans about how bad things are, Alice realizes they’ll have to slash their spending even more and axe their planned European vacations. Rimi said the economic pinch her protagonists face is a common story these days, especially as Canadian families are uncertain about their financial futures. “A lot of people are in the same situation,” the North Vancouver resident said. “Henry and Alice are middleaged, he’s out of a job and the stresses of money are developing. It’s a very truthful scenario in today’s world.” The Simon Fraser University grad said the topic will provoke many theatre-goers. As the drama unfolds, “they relate to what’s being said. They’re poking each other, nodding along. I hear sometimes there are big conversations on the road home.” But for many, her show also brings a much-needed dose of comic relief. “People have a laugh because they see themselves on stage. They know they’re not alone,” said Rimi, who has been married for eight years. see BONFIRE, page A22

This will be a relatively quiet year for Pigeon Park, the TriCity band made up of Centennial and Heritage Woods secondary graduates. The five musicians will be heading into the studio next month to record five or six songs they wrote together for their second EP. But, other than playing a few gigs, they’ll mostly be on home turf.

And after the EP comes out? Okabe said they’ll per-

Andrew Wheeler and Susinn McFarlen in the Arts Club Theatre production on Granville Island. Wheeler will reprise his role for the ACT tour, which stops in Coquitlam this and next month. Alice is played by Beatrice Zeilinger.
Bonfire, marital woes continued from page A20
The marital woes of Henry and Alice arrived on stage in the romantic comedy Sexy Laundry. Then, time and raising children had taken a toll on their union and Alice was desperate to rekindle the passion. One weekend, she whisks her reluctant husband to a spa hotel along with some saucy material: lingerie, sex toys and a copy of Sex for Dummies. Rimi said the sequel, Henry and Alice: Into the Wild, was born after a camping trip with her family to Osoyoos. And since the Arts Club Theatre premiered it in 2012 on its Granville
Island stage, it has been remounted across Canada to rave reviews. As for her next project, Rimi is once again turning her focus on contemporary family, saying, “I like to see everyday struggles brought to life.” • Henry and Alice: Into the Wild runs at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way) from Jan. 29 to Feb. 2 with six performances at 8 p.m. and a Saturday matinee at 4 p.m. As well, Michele Rimi will lead a preshow chat in the lower lobby on opening night at 7 p.m. Tickets are $39/$30/$15 through the ECC box office at 604927-6555. email@example.com

Soccer game turns ugly in Van By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy NewS
The Vancouver Police Department is investigating after a dust-up during a soccer match led to a Coquitlam man being sent to hospital with missing teeth and a broken jaw. Mohammad Mehradi, a coach of the Port Moody Metro Athletic club, said he was struck in the face by a member of the opposing team, the Vancouver Harps n’ Roos. Va n c ouve r Po l i ce Department Const. Brian Montague said police are investigating the incident and that a suspect has been identified. He added that while pushing and shoving are commonplace in amateur athletics, he has not seen an incident that has led to a police investigation. “Certainly, sporting events can get heated,” he said.“But to get to a point where the police have to get involved is pretty rare.”

Collins leads SFU to second place By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy NewS
The Simon Fraser University women’s basketball team has grown accustomed to winning games in the second half of this season.
But last Thursday’s 89-58 victory over the Montana State University Billings Yellowjackets was special for the Clan. With the win, the SFU team now sits in second place in the Great Northwest
Athletic Conference, a feat Port Coquitlam player Kristina Collins attributes to the team’s growing confidence. “We came out and showed we can be a confident team that plays together,” she said. “Everyone contributed
and it feels really good to come out in the second half of the season like that.” In Thursday’s win, the Tri-City athlete earned a double-double, scoring 16 points and recording 10 assists. She also contributed
to Saturday’s victory over the Seattle Pacific University Falcons, scoring 14 points in a game SFU won 83-63. The Clan had to play catchup on Saturday after the Falcons opened the scoring, but by the second half SFU was
comfortably in control. In the final half, SFU outscored the visitor’s bench 30-8. The team will travel to Nampa, Indiana, to take on the Nazarene Crusaders on Thursday, Jan. 24. firstname.lastname@example.org

Arnold, who is a Grade 11 student at Heritage Woods secondary, has set his sights on earning a spot on the Canadian national team and will compete at the U.S. open next month. He is also planning to attend two European opens later this spring, which could qualify him to compete at the 2013 World Championships. email@example.com

More woes for the Express By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy NewS
IAN WEBStER/BLAck pRESS
The Merritt Centennials beat up on the Coquitlam Express Saturday night at the Nicola Valley Arena. The home team shutout the visitors 5-0.
The Coquitlam Express’ path to the post-season has become a little more grueling after racking up three more losses on the weekend. The Langley Rivermen, which dealt Coquitlam a 4-2 de-
feat on Friday night at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex, sit three points up on the Express in the B.C. Hockey League standings, giving the Fraser Valley club the fourth a n d f i n a l p l ayo f f berth in the Mainland Division. Langley also has four games in hand over the Express, who
are tied for second to last place in the league. Coquitlam had a strong start in Friday’s game against the Rivermen. Ben Israel scored a goal on a feed from Travis Stephens before Adam Rossignol made it 2-0 for the Express before the end of the opening period.
But that would be the last bit of offence the young Coquitlam club could generate against the bruising Rivermen, who proceeded to score four unanswered goals, including two on the power play and one empty-netter, to win the game 4-2. see RIveRMen, page24

Rivermen rally slows Express continued from page 23
The team’s troubles continued on Saturday when they were routed 5-0 by the Merritt Centennials at the Nicola Valley Arena. Express goalie Cole Huggins played the whole game, stopping 39 of 44 shots behind a Coquitlam defence that couldn’t find an answer for the home team’s offensive push. O n S u n d a y, t h e
Express completed the three games in three nights, with a 6-3 loss to BCHL leaders the Penticton Vees. The Vees jumped out to a two goal lead before Coquitlam Kolten Grieve got his team on the board assisted by Cal Hofford. Penticton was able to make it 3-1 going into the middle frame, but Express forward Bradley Ryan was able to close the gap against the Vees after burying a pass from
Rossignol on the power play early in the second period. Pe n t i c t o n ’ s Jo h n Seimer, who was recently traded to the Vees from Coquitlam, scored on his former team to make it 4-2 but a power play goal from Marc Biega brought the Express to within one. But Coquitlam was unable to tie the game before Penticton’s Sam Mellor added an insurance marker and Brad McClure scored an
empty-netter with 16 seconds left in the game. The Express will hit the road this weekend to take on Prince George at the Prince George Coliseum on Saturday and Sunday. Coquitlam’s next home game is not until Feb. 9, where they will begin an eight-game home stand. For more information go to www.coquitlamexpress.ca. firstname.lastname@example.org
Two goals from B r i a n n e Wa g e r helped the Port Moody Nitro defeated Surrey’s CCBFC Extreme 2-1 last weekend in under-18 division one soccer. Wager helped her team to a 1-0 lead 10 minutes into the first half, before scoring a second goal off a feed from t e a m m at e A l l y Mandley with 15 minutes left in the match. The Port Moody defence, anchored by Chelsea Reed and Lindsay Kirck, was able to hold the Surrey team to just one goal and only a few good chances. Surrey’s lone goal came late in the game, but the visiting club was unable to find the equalizer. In the end, Port Moody won the match 2-1.
