Minor repairs needed on CMO By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
The south approach of the $132-million, threeyear-old Coast Meridian Overpass will need some repairs due to settlement issues but the Port Coquitlam bridge is structurally sound and the repairs are expected to be minor, the city said. An assessment conducted recently by builders SNC-Lavalin found some settlement had occurred on the south approach near Kingsway Avenue, but it was expected and accounted for in design and maintenance plans, said Dave Currie, the city’s manager of transportation, engineering and operations. “Yes, it was part of the design. It was understood there would be some settlement over time. The abutments were designed to allow for that,”he said. The bridge was built in an area of compressible soils, so piles were used to support the main structure, but the approaches were built on light weight fill designed to allow for settlement over time. Currie said most of the settlement occurs shortly after construction and then slows down. Although SNCLavalin was responsible for all repairs under warranty, the cost of ongoing settling repairs have to be paid for by the city. However, Currie said he won’t know how much work is required or what it will cost until the design work is completed in about six weeks. Orange spray paint lines can be seen on the concrete abutments leading up to the bridge where engineers have indicated work needs to be done.

Big plans for restoring old Pleasantside Grocery By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
A Port Moody architect who trained in Italy hopes the restoration of the Pleasantside Grocery Store will be part of a renaissance of the Port Moody confectionary that was a popular stop for ice cream and treats for hordes of summer beach-goers in years gone by. Julia Tihanenok of Non-Stop Design has
submitted paperwork to begin the application process that would see the 85-year-old building restored and re-opened as a grocery store, with the addition of a comm e rc i a l / r e s i d e n t i a l building to the west and, eventually, a single family home at the back of the one-acre property. Tihanenok, who is originally from Latvia and is taking on the project with the finan-
cial support of her family, acknowledges that the project is ambitious. But she said she plans to take it slow and consult with residents and heritage advocates, as well as provide the appropriate environmental, geotechnical and other reports as the city requires. In an interview with The News, Tihanenok said she is well aware of the importance of the Pleasantside
Grocery store to the community and will address neighbourhood as well as environmental and development concerns. “The most special thing is that everybody has childhood memories about it,” she said of the grocery store, now an empty shell, but which used to house a grocery store and the Pleasantside post office. see STORE, page 3

Happy Centennial Port Coquitlam!
Our History In the early 1970’s the Poco Inn and Suites Hotel was originally built and operated as a small Best Western Motel. In the early 1990’s due to a fire, the motel was rebuilt and reopened for business in 1994. In 1996 under new ownership, we developed the motel into a full service hotel that opened in 1998. In January of 2009 a decision to leave the Best Western franchise and operate as an independent hotel created a whole new chapter for accommodations in Port Coquitlam, bringing our standards to a higher level. We are proud to be part of the community and have enjoyed growing and changing together and look forward to the future!

Store ‘was a special place in the city’ continued from front page
The store was part of the Port Moody Station Museum’s recent tour of heritage homes and Tihanenok said people she met that day smiled when they talked about how it played a role in their summer vacation, as a place to get treats on the way to Buntzen Lake. “It was a special place in the city,” she acknowledged, and now, she says, she wants to bring it back to life.
Although her family’s business in Latvia was restoring buildings that were much older — about 400 to 500 years older — and has successfully completed renovations on two Port Moody buildings (an eight-unit commercial building housing Charlie’s Mexican Restaurant on St. Johns and a singlefamily home on Henry Street), fixing up the Pleasantside Grocery Store has its own special challenges. For example, the city requires that it be moved because it’s too close to Ioco Road, and the porch sits on city property. The parts of the old building, much of it constructed of recycled lumber when it was built in the 1920s, would probably have to be dismantled. Tihanenok fears it could could fall apart during the move otherwise. Putting it back together will take some time — and money, but she said “it’s not a deal breaker” and structural consultants now say at least the top floor could
Tihanenok seeks photos of old shop Since 1928, the Pleasantside Grocery Store has been a fixture on Port Moody’s north shore. A c c o rd i n g t o local history, it was built in 1927-1928 on three acres of land for Leo Peltier, using reclaimed wood from a North Vancouver ferry and the Empress of Japan. One of the longest-serving proprietors were John and Mary Ronco, who ran the convenience store and post-office for many years. Later Charlie Jack operated the store, which was a popular spot to get treats on the way to Buntzen Lake and for the residents of Pleasantside. It’s listed on the registry of Canada’s Historic Places. Julia Tihanenok is searching for historical photographs of the store that might provide information about the original look of the building.

be saved intact. But there are other hurdles as well. With the road so narrow and parking almost nonexistent, an underground parking garage would have to be built, which Tihanenok said

Julia Tihanenok of Non-Stop Design inside the Pleasantside Grocery Store in Port Moody, which she plans to restore as part of a larger development project. would be also be used by the residents and patrons of the future commercial/residential building she plans to build. The property is zoned local commercial and designated as commercial mixed use
in the city’s Official Community Plan, according to the city, so a public process will be required, especially if the development requires any changes to the designation. Heritage conservation issues will
have to be considered, as well as environmental concerns.
With Wilkes Creek running along the property, Tihanenok has to be mindful of the effects of
property development on the watershed. Her plans are to keep the project as green as possible, using solar and geothermal heat, and recovering rain water and using it for non-drinking purposes. If she gets approval to dig the parking garage into the hill, she would cover the slope with grass and fruit trees, recalling the area’s history as a former orchard, and also providing cover for the commercial/residential area as well. “We’re trying to have the parking as invisible as possible and trying to plant an orchard on top,” Tihanenok explained. The pre-application plans have only recently been submitted, and Tihanenok has a long way to go before they come to fruition. But so far the Pleasantside Community Association is cautiously optimistic about her vision. In a statement last week the association wrote: “We understand there is a preliminary plan for the Pleasantside Grocery Store that is far more sensitive to the surrounding area than the previous plan a few years ago. We hope that the new owners are able to save the Pleasantside Store as it is a landmark
in the area. As with any new development in Pleasantside, concerns about traffic, environment and density are paramount. Although some of our members have been impressed by the verbal statement of good intentions we would be more comfortable if we could see a more formalized plan for the development.”
Tihanenok received some of her training in Italy but graduated from UBC and has considerable local experience in home renovations and restorations, admits she has a long way to go to win approval for this project and bring it to completion. By taking it slow, first rebuilding the store, and then living on the top floor with her family, she hopes to get all her ducks in a row before completing the second and third phases of the project. For some, a mixed use development on land that has been undeveloped for years will come as a shock. She is considering 10 units of residential, that would include eight work/live lofts and two two-storey corner units, plus 5,800 square feet of commercial, possibly including a restaurant and a bakery, that would sell products at the Pleasantside store. To keep that vision going will take some perseverance and enthusiasm, but Tihanenok says she’s in it for the long haul. “If I’m in love with a project, I can’t let it go,” she said. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thrifty’s cancels plan to keep PoMo store open 24 hours Neighbours’ concerns one reason for the change By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News
Thrifty Foods in Port Moody has shelved plans to open 24 hours in response to neighbourhood concerns, The Tri-City News has learned.
“There is no other development where we are this tight with this many people,” explained Ralf Mundel, marketing and communications manger for the grocery chain. There are 2,000 people living in the Suter Brook community next to the store, and some were against the idea of a 24hour operation next to their home, Mundel said.
And while there was some support, including among staff, the company decided to maintain the current 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. store hours. “We’re going to let it lie and and respect the neighbours who have supported us since 2009,” he said. Thrifty Foods runs 24hour operations at seven other stores, an innova-
tion Mundel said was established to provide convenience for growing numbers of people and families who work nontraditional hours. Some residents, including people who contacted The News, said they were concerned about noise and traffic from extended hours, and what they considered to be a lack of
neighbourhood consultation. But Mundel said Thrifty Foods had to consult with landlords and staff first before talking with residents, and that was the planned next step, until it became apparent that there was considerable opposition to the idea. “In the last seven [stores] we’ve done… in
this consultation phase, we’ve always had good dialogue with neighbourhoods. [However] not one of those circumstances is the same as these circumstances as this development,”Mundel said. Although the decision to put off plans to open longer were made last week, Mundel wanted to hold off on reporting the news until staff, many
of whom had offered to work the late shift, had been informed. Aria 1 strata council member Sabina Hill said Suter Brook residents were pleased Thrifty Foods decided to hold off on implementing extended hours. “It certainly good news for all our residents,” Hill said. email@example.com

A Riverside secondary student has taken one of the top prizes in an ICBC road safety contest. M at t h ew D i s u , a Grade 12 student at the Port Coquitlam school, won first place in the speed category of ICBC’s Your Ad Here contest, which had high school students from throughout B.C. design a road safety message that would help their friends see the risks of impaired driving, speeding and distracted driving. More than 225 students in Grades 8 to 12 entered the contest. “My ad shows graphically, and slightly humorously, that the faster you go the more dangerous it becomes for both you and everyone around you,” Disu said in a release.

The pulse of a Coquitlam urban park — described by the mayor as the city’s “most precious jewel” — will be taken this year. On Monday, councilin-committee okayed a recommendation to spend $60,000 to hire a consultant to look at Mundy Park with community users and environmental stewards. And the basis of the consultant’s findings will form part of a new Mundy Park Forest Management Plan that will include the park’s overall health as well as tree and invasive species risks, potential wildfire conflicts and recreation amenities. The city is expected to host an open house in the the fall to gauge public feedback before city council approves the document in November. Lanny Englund, Coquitlam’s urban forestry and park services manager, told the committee the 440-acre second-growth forest park — dedicated as an urban forest park in 1993 in a referendum — is regu-
larly maintained by city crews along the 15 km of trails. However, he said, much of the data the city has about Mundy is now out of date. The review comes after a massive windstorm in 2006 knocked down thousands of trees in Lower Mainland parks, including in Mundy. As well, in 2010, a commercial business proposed to have a forest adventure playground that would include zip lines, ladders and swings in part of Mundy’s tree canopy (city council voted down the idea after logging hundreds of complaints from the public). Coun. Selina Robinson said Mundy Park is a sensitive topic with residents while Coun. Craig Hodge said a management plan should be in place to protect it for future generations. “Mundy Park is our most precious jewel,” Mayor Richard Stewart said. Meanwhile, Coun. Mae Reid said she would like the consultant to review the dog walking hours and whether they

Children of the Street Society in Coq. launches campaign By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News
Be careful of what you share on social media, warns a Coquitlam-based child advocacy group. Th e C h i l d r e n o f the Street Society has launched a campaign to promote awareness of the dangers of sharing photos and texts that could lead to sexual exploitation online. Developed with the support of Cossette Vancouver, the media campaign bears a marked similarity to the anti-bullying video created by Port Coquitlam teen Amanda Todd before she committed suicide. Todd was stalked online and her photos were distributed, leading to bullying, anxiety and other problems, and, in her much-publicized video, she uses flash cards to tell her story. The campaign by Children of the Street, called “Just One Photo” also uses flash cards and multiple screens to tell the story of a young girl who shared a private photo online with someone she trusted and then it went viral. It’s a cautionary tale also reminiscent of the media storm that followed a rave in Pitt Meadows two years ago in which photos were posted on Facebook and led to serious charges. Last week, Dennis John
The “Just One Photo” campaign is being shared through posters, a Youtube video, and transit shelter advertisements. Allen Warrington received a conditional discharge and will be required to complete 120 hours of community service in addition to probation for photos he posted that went viral. Children of the Street Society executive director Diane Sowden said the Just One Photo campaign is being launched this week to mark Stop the Sexual Exploitation
of Children and Youth Awareness Week (March 11-17) and to remind young people that they need to be need to be cautious about what they post online. Kids might think they are sending a photo to a trusted person but the situation can quickly get out of control. “This campaign is intended to raise awareness that, when you are online,
there is no such thing as sharing just one photo,” Sowden said, noting that there can be social, legal and career consequences for youth who post compromising photos of themselves online. While she acknowledged that the media campaign with a girl using flash cards to tell her story is reminiscent of the Amanda Todd video, she said the two aren’t linked. In fact, Sowden said, flash cards are used often in the media, and by youth online, to share information in a simple and compelling way. However, with more sexual exploitation of youth taking place online, Sowden said it’s important for youth to have information to keep themselves safe. To that need, the society provides workshops for students aged 11 through 18. “It’s something we’re seeing more and more. We get calls from schools in the Lower Mainland where counsellors say we’re having a sexting epidemic. It’s these children we need do talk about,”Sowden said. As part of its campaign, the society is asking people to wear a fuchsia ribbon, make a donation, like them Facebook or follow them on Twitter.

Another move in store for PoMo’s Appleyard house By Sarah Payne The Tri-CiTy News
The Appleyard house will soon be on the move for the third time in its more than 100-year history. At a closed-door meeting earlier this month, Port Moody council voted to move the house from its current location at 126 Kyle St. to a plot directly beside the Port Moody Arts Centre at 2425 St. Johns St., with the two buildings to be connected by a corridor. Coun. Gerry Nuttall, who chairs the arts and
culture committee, said the move will preserve the Kyle Street land for future use. “But the main impetus for it being moved is it will fit better into the current Arts Centre Society’s plans, because they wouldn’t have to have staffing at two locations.” Nuttall said the society will save up to $65,000 annually by operating the two buildings as one. The cost to move the building across the street is only slightly higher than the already antici-
pated cost of moving the house further north on the Kyle Street lot, once a foundation had been built, Nuttall added. The Appleyard house was first moved in December 2005, when Fred Soofi took it from its original home at 2717 Clarke St., near the Moody Street overpass, to a lot across the road, where it was turned into a pizza restaurant. Several years later it was purchased by the provincial government to make way for the Evergreen Line. The 1910 home was then do-
i l a Btaways
nated to the city of Port Moody to help preserve its architectural heritage, and it was moved to Kyle Street last July. Staff are still in the project planning and design stage for the new location and the move will require another development variance permit. It’s not known yet when the move will take place, but the project has to be finished by the end of the year to qualify for the nearly $481,000 federal grant for the project, which was announced in February. firstname.lastname@example.org

PoCo council passes heritage bylaw for Melissa Park Lodge The Tri-CiTy News
The Community Integration Services Society is one step closer to securing long-term residency inside Port Coquitlam’s second oldest remaining house, Melissa Park Lodge. On Monday evening, PoCo council unanimously approved two bylaws — for heritage designation and revitalization — for the 102-yearold home and adjacent property at 2175 Mary Hill Rd. Previously zoned for apartment use, the new heritage designation will permit the CISS to have office space and offer ancillary day programming for adults with developmental disabilities at Melissa Park. A public hearing on the bylaw was called before the vote on Monday but no speakers came forward. CISS executive director Shari Mahar, who attended the meeting, was not surprised there were no opponents to the zoning change, saying the non-profit organization has received a lot of support from the community. “Throughout this process, no one has said this is not a good idea,” said Mahar. The CISS has been operating with a temporary use permit for the past year after moving their office from Port Moody to Melissa Park. At first, the space felt dark, restricted and institutionalized, described Mahar. But after undergoing a massive renovation, Melissa Park is now an inviting place with more room for training and teaching. Preserving the unique exterior of the three-andhalf storey, Edwardian style wood frame structure is part of the Heritage Revitalization Agreement between the city and the CISS. The CISS has also agreed to a conservation plan. The organization also purchased the adjacent property, 2195 Mary Hill Rd, which provides them

care - which is something that they are looking at down the road, said Mahar. The bylaw will also help the CIFF move to the next step:
applying for heritage status from the federal government. “We hope to be here at Melissa Park forever,” said Mahar.

Residents take part in gambling study Poll finds backing for existing casinos, not new ones By Jeff Nagel Black Press
A new poll suggests Lower Mainland residents generally support a casino in their community — if one already exists. The new Insights West online poll found a 55% majority of Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley residents whose community hosts a casino supports it, but the mood is marginally against gambling venues in cities that don’t yet have one.
tri-city newS file photo
A new poll has found that 55% of residents who live in a community that hosts a casino support the facility. In those areas, 45% oppose a new casino, compared to 42% who support a future addition. The findings come in the wake of Surrey city council’s rejection in
January of a new 600-slot South Surrey casino and entertainment complex, which would have replaced an existing community gaming centre in Newton.
“After the Surrey casino debacle, there has been a lot of public debate about the level of public support for or against the construction of new casinos,” Insights West president Steve Mossop said. “Our poll shows that, generally speaking, the public is in favour of casinos — just not new ones.” The poll found overwhelming majority of regular casino patrons (84%) support existing casinos and two-thirds back new ones in municipalities that don’t yet have them. The top concern respondents listed was problem gambling, with 72% agreeing casinos
make it worse, while 48% said they’re harmful to society and bring crime and gang activity. Traffic and parking were also a concern of nearly half of those polled. Casino opponents and supporters generally agreed casinos boost the local tax base, bring jobs and attract tourists. The big divide between the two camps is whether casinos are bad for society — 88% of opponents think so but only 10% of supporters do. The poll surveyed 1,077 Lower Mainland adults at the begining of February. For more details see insightswest.com.

PICTURE THIS adrian raeside
The health of the Coquitlam River can’t be measured by one small study taken over a few days in one single year. There is no point in getting overly excited about Coquitlam’s self-funded and self-reviewed $13,000 study that found the river is “in good shape overall.”While the city’s study is a good first step, it is limited in scope and more testing days are needed over many more years to get a true picture of the river’s well-being. The results, which flagged issues such as slightly high dissolved oxygen rates and an unusual copper reading, only prove that the river needs to be monitored and protected from development and pollution. This is not the time to rest on laurels. Indeed, the study’s findings only prove that the more people who take an interest in the health of the river the more its long-term viability can be protected. The city of Coquitlam deserves credit for taking a leadership role and bearing some responsibility for the health of the river. But this modest effort at data gathering shouldn’t merely be an exercise in public relations for either the gravel industry or the city itself. There is another much larger project that deserves even more recognition — the Coquitlam River Watershed Roundtable — a collaborative effort involving both the city, the aggregate industry and many other groups and agencies. Funded in part by the real estate industry, BC Hydro, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam, Metro Vancouver, Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the Kwikwetlem First Nation and other partners, the roundtable co-ordinates and implements activities that will promote the river’s long-term sustainability. Dozens of groups and individuals are involved — from artists, to hunters and fishermen, to watershed residents — and all support a common vision that includes, education, stewardship, and of course, monitoring. Without more knowledge of the river’s health, we can’t be sure if our actions are making a difference, for good or for bad. Thankfully, enough people who care are paying attention and that bodes well for the future.
BC Liberal’s ethnic strategy is nothing new BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA he B.C. legislature session ends this week. It can’t come quickly enough for Premier Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals. This is also the week we see the rest of the fallout from “ethnic-gate,” as the latest controversy over partisan activity by political staff has been clumsily labelled. A disgruntled former B.C. Liberal caucus staffer handed the NDP opposition an internal memo setting out a strategy for ethnic “outreach” that strayed into forbidden territory, suggesting that ethnic-friendly government events could be staged and participants’ names collected and turned over to the party. “This secret plan clearly demonstrates the Liberals are deliberately folding government resources and staff into their party’s campaign machinery, despite rules that forbid this,” thundered NDP house leader John
Horgan.“We’ve seen this before, with the Liberals’ efforts to run a secret committee to subvert the public process around Burnaby Hospital, and in the attack website created by caucus staff and launched by the Liberal party.” Casual observers might see this as a disturbing new development in misuse of public resources. It’s disturbing, all right, but it’s hardly new. The “attack website” Horgan refers to is a case in point. While a website targeting NDP leader Adrian Dix was being cooked up in the B.C. Liberal bunker, a similar effort was being developed in NDP research down the hall. This partisan message detailed all the worthwhile things that could be done with the government’s $15 million advertising budget singing the praises of the government’s “jobs plan.” But this one carried the logo of the NDP caucus, so it was within the rules. The average person, seeing two groups of staff on the public payroll, each slagging the other, might not detect much of a difference.

The biggest headline from the leaked memo was its reference to generating “quick wins” for the election campaign by staging apologies for historic racial injustices. It mentioned how former premier Gordon Campbell delivered a solemn apology in 2008 for the decision to turn away a ship carrying Sikh refugees from Vancouver harbour — shortly after the outbreak of the First World War. What does a modern provincial premier accomplish by apologizing for a federal immigration decision made in 1915? Why would another premier now feel the need to apologize for a federal “head tax” imposed on Chinese immigrants from 1885 to 1923? The answer is obvious. Again, don’t expect much to change with an NDP government. Asked last week if he would stage an apology for the head tax, Dix delivered a well-rehearsed history lesson that made it clear he is anxious to do so. Welcome to politics in an urbanized, globalized media culture. It’s more important to put on a show than to do the right thing. Hospitals are announced three times before they’re
built, then announced again when they are staffed. Politics is a lucrative career. Former B.C. Liberal MLA Lorne Mayencourt is one of the additional “outreach” staff hand-picked by Clark. The B.C. Liberals retort that the NDP caucus has a similar staffer named Gabriel Yiu, who has taken three leaves of absence to run for MLA, and is in practical terms a professional NDP candidate. Yiu is running for a fourth time in Vancouver-Fraserview, having been defeated in 2009 by former West Vancouver police chief Kash Heed. That campaign was notorious for anonymous Chinese-language pamphlets claiming the NDP favours legalizing drugs and imposing a “death tax” on inheritance. This latest scandal might produce meaningful reform. But the misuse of public money to further the interests of political parties is deeply entrenched.

Province should cap utility rates PoCo pools should stay open, says parent The Editor, Re. “Speak up on outdoor PoCo pools” (The Tri-City News, Feb. 20). So last week I opened up some mail to find the city of Port Coquitlam is “Planning the Future of our Outdoor Pools.” Having grown up in Lincoln Park, Sun Valley Pool is a staple in my memories. I grew up on Evergreen Street and Sun Valley was just a short walk away. My mom used to take us to the wading pool every day it was sunny in the summertime. I still remember the old fire truck at the park and the long metal slide that still remains. After relocating to Mission for five years, we missed home and last summer, we moved back to PoCo, back to Lincoln Park, where I grew up. As a mom of two children aged four years and six months, and a healthy lifestyle blogger, I’m an avid advocate for
health, wellness and kids’ health. I’ve always been proud of the city I grew that has a large focus on health in the community. Now, I must admit, I feel some disappointment. This pool proposal is contradictory to what I thought were the city’s values. Closing community pools could potentially mean less physical activity and fun for neighbourhood children, and with a nationwide obesity epidemic, you would think providing activities that get children active would be a priority. While I do appreciate spray parks, if you ask most kids, they would pick going in the pool over the spray park any day. Small kids tend not to enjoy the spray parks as much. The water is freezing and on the odd occasion, the bigger kids take over the equipment. I understand that with PoCo being a growing community, that

means increased costs but all I ask is that the city doesn’t lose sight of the little things — like our pools — that have made our city so great and made people want to stay in PoCo to raise their own children. I hope closing some outdoor pools is reconsidered. There are already few enough places to take small children outdoors in the summer as most playgrounds aren’t very toddlerfriendly.

The Editor, Re. “City bills are due soon for water, sewer” (The Tri-City News, March 8). I have just received my utility statement from the city of Coquitlam with a total amount of $772 for the current year. This amounts to a whopping increase of 134% over the previous ten (10) year period, an average of
13.4% per year. In 2010, when I received my statement, I wrote a letter directed at city council complaining about the gigantic increase from the previous year and pointing out that in a six-year period they had increased the utility cost by 84%. The city had made statements that Metro Vancouver increased
costs had made these increases necessary. I also pointed out that Coquitlam has representatives on the Metro Vancouver Regional District who have a voice and vote and I requested information as to how they voted. They did not respond. Utilities like gas have controls on them through utility commis-
sions. Hydro and Fortis have to go before a commission to justify rate increases. It might be time for the provincial government to place water, sewer and garbage under greater control in an attempt to get to grips on the unfettered actions of Metro Vancouver and the municipalities.

Protect your pin, says RCMP Coquitlam RCMP are offering tips and resources for business owners and ATM users to help them avoid PIN pad tampering and ATM skimming. PIN pad tampering involves swapping legitimate PIN pads or card readers with bogus readers that have been manipulated to collect card and PIN numbers. Information is either collected and stored on the reader or, in some cases, transmitted wirelessly to criminals waiting nearby. Merchants are advised to: • Know where all their PIN pads are at all times • Keep terminals out of sight when not in use and lock them up at closing • Check PIN pads regularly for signs of tampering, including tampered security seals, a pad moved to a different location without your knowledge, cracked plastic casing or missing screws • Check identification of terminal service personnel • Be alert for “customers” trying to distract employees when using the PIN pad • Hire people you trust to handle payments If an altered PIN pad is discovered, merchants should not touch it and

The Coquitlam RCMP is offering tips for ATM users to help them avoid PIN pad tampering and ATM skimming. call police immediately. Police are also cautioning ATM users to be alert for skimming — a process where fraudsters are able to obtain your credit or debit card number and your PIN. Skimming devices, typically installed into or over the card slot, pick up the card number during a transaction while a small wireless camera near the PIN pad of the ATM (often a pamphlet holder) captures your PIN as you type it in. The suspects may even ben in a car nearby with a laptop, viewing a
live stream video of you typing in your PIN. Tips to prevent ATM skimming include: • Always use a familiar ATM • Look for ATMs with security cameras and in a well lit area • Be suspicious if your card is “eaten” by an ATM and someone approaches you to say a similar thing happened to them before suggesting you re-enter your PIN • Limit your afterhours ATM use • Watch for people looking over your shoul-

Transit fare cheats still slow to pay fines By Jeff Nagel Black Press
Most transit fare cheaters busted by police still arenâ€™t paying their $173 fines to TransLink despite new powers to punish them that took effect last fall. TransLink says about 20 per cent of the 16,000 fare evaders caught and ticketed between Sept. 4 and the end of February have now paid their fines. Thatâ€™s up a bit from the roughly 16%payment rate in past years when TransLink had no way to enforce payment. The provincial government last spring passed Bill 51, which makes ICBC block auto insurance and driverâ€™s licence renewals for fare evaders who donâ€™t pay fines, and lets TransLink dispatch bill collectors as well. TransLink spokesman Derek Zabel said the payment rate may climb higher because non-paying riders have 90 days to pay and those fined in December, January
or February would still have had time when the end-of-February statistics were compiled. â€œBill 51 needs to be in place for more than a year for us to start to see any sort of trends and get a good understanding of whatâ€™s happening out there,â€?Zabel said. He said 35% of the fines issued have been sent to a collections agency, while TransLink has asked ICBC to bar renewals for 583 others so far. Fare evasion fines go up $40 if theyâ€™re not paid within six months and they go up $100 if unpaid after a year. Transit Police conducted 1.15 million fare checks from September to the end of February â€”Â 200,000 more than the same period of the previous year â€”Â but 2,000 fewer tickets were issued. Zabel said that suggests more passengers are now paying their fares instead of risking a ticket and fare evasion rates may be dropping. â€œIt shows you that Bill 51 is working, the mes-
Connect with the community in PoCo Non-profit groups and community organizations are invited to showcase their talent at an upcoming Port Coquitlam council meeting as part of the cityâ€™s council community connections program. Coordinated by the PoCo Spirit Committee, the program was launched in 2008 to provide schools, youth groups and non-profits an opportunity to raise awareness about their activities in the community. Since then, council
community connections has had performances and presentations ranging from theatre groups to the Terry Fox Foundation, giving them a unique opportunity to showcase their talents and events. Applicants must submit their request to communityconnections@ portcoquitlam.ca at least 30 days before the desired presentation date.

sage is getting out there,â€? he said. â€œIt was designed to get people to pay their fare. We donâ€™t want to be out there writing millions of tickets and collecting millions of dollars in fine revenue.â€? TransLink now gets paid fines, which used to be collected by the province. TransLink will introduce its new Compass smart card later this year as fare gates being installed are activated.
That will also reduce the scope for fare evasion, according to Zabel. Regular riders wonâ€™t have to go to a store to buy their monthly fare cards or FareSaver tickets either. Instead they can add more cash to their Compass card at any time, or program it to automatically load more money on when the cash remaining gets below a certain level.

Confiscating phones rejected Bond says plan could create privacy issues By Tom Fletcher Black Press
Talking and texting behind the wheel continues to be a major road safety problem, but Attorney General Shirley Bond has rejected raising fines or taking away mobile phones to deal with the problem. The tough new measures were suggested last week by Victoria Police Chief Jamie Graham, after an enforcement blitz by B.C. police forces resulted in about 6,000 tickets being issued in February. Graham, chair of the B.C. Association of Police Chiefs’ traffic safety committee, suggested police should also have the authority to seize a phone for 24 hours for a first offence, and for several days for repeat offences. Graham also referred to $350 fines available for other traffic safety violations. The current fine for mobile phone use while driving is $167. “I’m certainly not considering the seizure of cell phones,” Bond said Monday.“I am concerned, though, that we continue

See why 2 of Jane's patients believe in acupuncture: • 62 Year old Ricky of Port Coquitlam suffered from Sciatica last May and came to our office for help. He was treated four times and got well. Again this year he experienced an incidence of pain in his waist. He was treated here accordingly with Acupuncture for one week , afterwards, the pain was gone. • 51-year-old Kelly felt body pain especially on the neck, shoulder, waist and back every day and night over the past few years. She tried everything and finally came to Acupuncture by a TCM doctor and Acupuncturist Dr. Wang who used TCM technique and Acupuncture to help her and relieve her pain. Now she is free from the pain and misery and became a happy and healthy person.

100 years of history under one roof Port Coquitlam’s museum showcases city’s past By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News
You don’t need to be a Port Coquitlam resident to appreciate the museum the Port Coquitlam Heritage and Cultural Society opened March 7, the 100th anniversary of the city’s incorporation. Heritage at Leigh Square, as it’s known, tells a story common to all cities in the region and anyone with some interest in learning how Metro Vancouver grew from rural farmland to a densely-populated mega city will find something to enjoy here. Stepping into the museum, you are transported to the past through a delightfully cohesive selection of “stories” that trace the city’s history. Using video, graphics, artifacts and storyboards, Heritage at Leigh Square traces the region’s history from the the First Nations indigenous people to Terry Fox. And many of the stories it shares are common to all cities in the Lower Mainland — from First Nations history to the influx of immigrants seeking employment in the fishing and forestry industries, from the carving up of land into farmsteads through to incorporation and the building of railroads, highways, bridges, parks and schools. How many of us traveling Lower Mainland streets and highways take the time to consider who went before? Probably not very many but there is much to learn by studying the past and Heritage at Leigh Square is a great teacher. You’ll learn, for example, how the city survived through fires, floods, two world wars
DIANE STRANDBERG/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Top-left: Marilyn Jollimore, area recreation manager for Port Coquitlam and Coun. Glenn Pollock check out the displays at the new Heritage at Leigh Square museum that opened last week. Top-right: Karon Fuson, right, hugs Rosemary Page, the daughter of Peter Carter Page, whose mural was revealed during the opening ceremonies of the museum. Meanwhile, Gerry and Morley Deans (bottom right) check out some of the displays (bottom left). and a depression, cataclysmic events that shook the entire region. Housed at the Outlet at Leigh Square, itself almost an historic artifact (it was a former post office) and paid for with a combination of municipal and federal grants
and fundraising by PoCo Heritage, the museum is not much larger than a large living room. But the small space packs a lot of punch. There are displays of household implements, clothing, sporting goods and fishing
gear beautifully presented in glass cases to show how people lived in years gone by. A wellcrafted case built by STP Woodworking shows some fine examples of First Nations artwork. A slim cedar canoe banked against some stones and
river grass looks as if it was just dropped there by an ancient fisher. Visitors to the museum should also take a few minutes to watch a video on Port Coquitlam’s history made by Shawn Lam Video Productions with
the support of PoCo Heritage volunteer Brian Ness (who was also integral to the production of The Tri-City News’ Port Coquitlam 100 section on March 6). It’s an informative, sometimes funny and even emotional recounting of
PoCo’s early days up to Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope, featuring photos of and interviews with local people who remember the old days, including many who knew the hometown hero personally. Another remarkable artifact unveiled on the museum’s opening is a mural painted by noted Canadian artist Peter Carter Page that used to grace the walls of the Wild Duck Inn, a former watering hole and duckhunting lodge (and stripper bar). It was rescued by PoCo Heritage member Karon Fuson after an ultimately unsuccessful fight to save the building. The inn was knocked down to make way for the Golden Ears Bridge road system, ending an era of highway roadhouses, but Fuson managed to wrestle the large mural into her basement, where it stayed for five years. With the kind of perseverance typical of PoCo people, Fuson and PoCo Heritage never gave up on the vision of restoring the mural and building a museum to house it. There will be more work ahead. Some finishing touches are required, the museum will have to be maintained and exhibits kept up to date. All these things the heritage society is committed to providing, in addition to ensuring a volunteer is on site most days during opening hours. They will need support and extra hands in this endeavour — and it’s worth it so the city’s stories can continue to be told. • Heritage at Leigh Square is located at 2100-2253 Leigh Sq., Port Coquitlam (doors open on McAllister Avenue), next to city hall. For more information or to volunteer, call 604-927-8403 or email pocoheritage1@gmail. com.

Aboriginal authors tell stories IT’S BONUS TIME! Up T To 60 Capsules FREE! of perseverance and struggle
* Bonus size varies
A GOOD READ Susan Clark
n often overlooked segment of Canadian literature is the work of Aboriginal authors. Here are a few titles, then, worth checking out: Kiss of the Fur Queen by Tomson Highway is about the repercussions of taking two small boys away from their idyllic way of life in the wilderness of Manitoba and placing them into the world of the Catholic residential school. At the school, their native language is forbidden, their names changed and they are abused by priests. Despite this, both boys grow up to be talented artists; Gabriel becomes a concert pianist and Jeremiah a dancer. Eventually, the young men become estranged from their own people and struggle to survive in the city. Thomas King’s writing is funny, readable and thought-provoking. A Short History of Indians in Canada: Stories pokes fun at native mythmaking and First NationCaucasian relationships
through history. King’s highly acclaimed short story collection, One Good Story, That One, was a Canadian bestseller. Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese depicts the struggles of Saul Indian Horse after he is sent away to a residential school in Manitoba. Hockey becomes Saul’s passion and joy but when his talent attracts notice from the NHL, he finds that he can’t cope with ongoing incidents of overwhelming racism. He also struggles with his attempts to block his feelings about the abuse he underwent at school as well as the loss of the children that died there.
Monkey Beach by Eden Robinson is set on the Haisla reservation of Kitamat, where the author grew up. Robinson interweaves some brilliant supernatural elements with beautiful descriptions of northern ocean landscapes to give the reader insight into local aboriginal culture. The book tells the story of a native girl’s quest to find her brother, who was lost at sea. Lee Maracle is one of the most prolific aboriginal authors in Canada, an award-winning poet, novelist, performance storyteller, scriptwriter, actor and keeper/ mythmaker among the Stó:lo people. Her novel Daughters are Forever provides insight into the challenges First Nations people face as they move into the modern world. The novel is unique in the way it is structured on Salish Nation storytelling as a way to depict the transformation of Marilyn, a First Nations woman who is alienated from her culture, her family and herself. Red: A Haida Manga by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas is a full-colour graphic novel docu-
menting the tragic story of a leader so blinded by revenge that he leads his community to the brink of destruction. Three Day Road by Joseph Boyden is the account of two young Cree boys who start out eager to fight in the First World War. Each of the friends adapts to the harsh conditions in a different way. Only one of them returns — but may not survive his wounds and an addiction to morphine. The outcome is an absorbing narrative that interweaves the disturbing description of horrors in the trenches with the rich and multifaceted recollections of the protagonists’ lives, their emotions and experiences of the past. The ability to persevere despite struggles and hardships is a solid theme continued throughout these novels. Remember to ask your librarian for more inspiring Canadian Aboriginal titles. • A Good Read is a column by Tri-City librarians that is published every Wednesday. Susan Clark works at Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox Library.

A collaboration between Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation and Crossroads Hospice Society is encouraging Tri-Cities residents to get out and “Bike and Hike for Your Community” this spring. Inspired by the work both organizations do for the community, the concept of Two Days, Two Great Causes is a campaign that focuses on health and healing. To enhance the impact of their two major fundraisers — Wheel 2 Heal (W2H) and Hike for Hospice — the two non-profits will share
resources to plan a weekend of active, healthy living. “As a part of our mission to ‘put life into days’ the Two Great Causes campaign is the perfect partnership to inspire others to participate in a weekend of wellness and community building,” said Bob Tanaka, Crossroads Hospice Society board president. “We hope that people will embrace both events as a part of personal wellness and as a means to honour those who have been assisted by either group.”
“I can’t think of a better way to spend my weekend than on the trails biking or hiking around the Tri-Cities,” said Alison Johansen, Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation board chair. “It’s a great way to have fun with friends and family, throw in a little physical activity, all while feeling really good about giving back to two causes in our community.” The events will take place on Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5.

Gold medal for young cook The Tri-CiTy News
A Gleneagle secondary cooking apprentice is off to the provincials after whipping up a gold medal dish at a regional skills competition last week. Keagan Archer-Hastie, 17, took the top culinary arts prize for the central Lower Mainland for serving up the best panfried chicken with pan gravy, potato gnocchi and vegetable bouquetiere. Besides the taste, Archer-Hastie was also judged on his timing, creativity, work habits and food presentation. “It was really exciting to win,” the Grade 12 student said from the teaching kitchen at his Coquitlam high school last Friday. “Now, I get the opportunity to go to the next level and represent my school. That’s very cool and awesome. “All my hard work is paying off.” A line cook at the Coquitlam Cactus Club, A rc h e r- H a s t i e a l s o

2013 Capital Program Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 4385, 2013 Notice is hereby given, pursuant to the Community Charter, that the Council for the City of Coquitlam proposes to adopt the 2013 Capital Program Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 4385, 2013 to support long term borrowing for a series of growth related road and water utility projects in the City.
By Janis Warren
Notice of Alternative Approval Process
The purpose of the bylaw is to authorize the City of Coquitlam to borrow upon the credit of the Municipality a sum not exceeding $17,874,000 in order to undertake and carry out, or cause to be carried out, a series of road and water utility infrastructure projects necessary to support growth in the City, in accordance with general plans on file in the municipal office, and to do all things necessary in connection therewith, including: • Northeast Coquitlam Arterial Road Expansion- Phase 1 - $9,210,000; • Crouch Reservoir – $4,120,000; • Harper Reservoir-Cell 1 -$1,810,000; and • City Centre Pump Station- Phase 1- $2,734,000. The total estimated cost of these road and utility system improvement projects, including expenses incidental thereto, is the sum of $21,930,000. $4,056,000 of this total will be paid for from existing City sources, primarily Development Cost Charges (DCCs) already collected, and $17,874,000 is the amount of debt created by this bylaw. Given that these projects are infrastructure projects that are included in the City’s approved DCC program, the appropriate funding sources are DCCs. The use of long-term borrowing therefore allows the future debt payments to be matched to the related DCCs as they are collected over time. Unless a minimum of ten percent (10%) of the City‘s electors sign and submit an Elector Response Form indicating that Council must first obtain the assent of the electors before proceeding (i.e., through a referendum), Council for the City of Coquitlam may adopt the 2013 Capital Program Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 4385, 2013 without further notice. The number of electors in the City of Coquitlam for the purpose of this alternative approval process has been approved as being 82,839 - thus establishing the ten percent (10%) limit as 8,283 electors. Qualified electors who are in favour of this process do not have to sign or submit any documents. Completed Elector Response Forms which are submitted as part of this alternative approval process must be in the form established by the Council for the City of Coquitlam. Copies of the approved Elector Response Forms, along with other supporting documentation, are available to the public from the City Clerk’s Office at Coquitlam City Hall, 3000 Guildford Way (2nd Floor), Coquitlam during normal office hours (8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday) or via the City’s website at www.coquitlam.ca under the Public Notices section (www.coquitlam.ca/publicnotices). Elector Response Forms must be submitted to the City of Coquitlam by no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 15, 2013. Originally signed Elector Response Forms must be delivered in person or by mail (no fax or electronic submissions are permitted) to the attention of the City Clerk at Coquitlam City Hall, 3000 Guildford Way, Coquitlam, B.C., V3B 7N2 (completed forms must be in the possession of the City Clerk by the deadline as postmarks will not be accepted as a date of submission). The area to which the approval process applies is the entirety of the City of Coquitlam. Residents of Coquitlam who are eligible to sign and submit an Elector Response Form must: • be a Canadian citizen; • be 18 years of age or older; • have been a resident of British Columbia for at least 6 months prior to signing the form; • have lived in the City of Coquitlam for at least 30 days before signing the form; and • not be disqualified by a Provincial enactment, or otherwise disqualified by law, from voting in an election. A person who is not a resident of the City, but who owns property within the City, is eligible to submit an Elector Response Form provided that they: • are not entitled to vote as a resident elector in the City of Coquitlam; • are a Canadian citizen; • are 18 years of age or older; • have been a resident of British Columbia for at least 6 months prior to signing the form; • have been a registered owner of real property in the City of Coquitlam for at least 30 days before signing the form; • sign the form in relation to only one parcel of real property that they own in the City of Coquitlam; • are the representative who has the written consent of the majority of the registered owners of the real property to sign the form; • are registered owners of the real property as individuals and who do not hold the property in trust for a corporation or another trust; and • are not disqualified by a Provincial enactment, or otherwise disqualified by law, from voting in an election. If you have any questions concerning this process please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 604-927-3010, via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by visiting the City Clerk’s Office in person at Coquitlam City Hall, 3000 Guildford Way (2nd Floor), Coquitlam, B.C.

the data to correctly follow the line,” Shi explained. One of the biggest challenges the ‘bot had to undertake was to climb on top of a raised platform without falling off. Bruce Yan said the Ninja
This week’s challenge for Delany and his opponents is to come up with a creative and healthy 100% green dish for St. Patrick’s Day.
Bunnies racked up the most points in the competition, but acknowledged he was nervous during the event held over two days at BCIT. “I was nervous and eager for first place,”he said. In addition to building the robot and programming it using LEGO Mindstorms, the students developed a mission statement, created a logo and stickers, designed a high-tech cane for use by seniors and made posters about their core values. Their success has prompted the students in Grade 6 to 9 to consider entering the competition next year, andYan said he expects big things from the Ninja Bunnies.
Photos of the contestants creations will be posted March 15th at facebook.com/ kinsfarmmarket. The most creative meal will win a dinner for two to Stonegrill Restaurant in Vancouver. To find out more about the challenge go to kinsgreenfighters.com

Lego is not just for toddlers anymore. The colorful building blocks have been used to create towns, villages, even entire cities and a group of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Burnaby students are winning awards with a robot they made of Lego. Johnny Wei, Bruce Yan, Tianhao Xu and Oscar Shi lugged home a lot of hardware — much of it made out of Lego — during the recent B.C. Regional Championships of the First Lego League. The boys, who call themselves the Ninja Bunnies, won not only second place overall but first place in matches pitting robot against robot in a timed competition. As well, the students picked up first place for strategy and innovation — not bad for a group that just formed in the fall. “I am really proud of the boys,” said coach Phillip Yan. He said the students worked for months before taking home the top prizes in January, developing strategies, a mission, building their robot and programming it to do multiple tasks. Bruce Yan and Tianhao Xu, are Grade 6 students from Summit middle, Johnny Wei is in Grade 8 at Citadel middle and Oscar Shi is in Grade 9 at Burnaby North secondary. Recently, the boys demonstrated their robot’s skills on a speciallymade table. They have programed the ‘bot to do 15 tasks, such as moving some Lego flowers from one place to another and knocking down some bowling pins, using attachments they also made. “Fail” said Shi, when the robot didn’t do its appointed task on the first try. It was then repositioned and successfully completed the job. The boys think the reason their robot won the performance competition — completing

Sculpting teacher at PdA shows in the Big Apple A Port Moody artist and sculpting teacher at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts has her work on show this month in NewYork City. Parvaneh Roudgar is exhibiting six pieces as part of a group display at the Agora Gallery, a space on West 25th Street that highlights contemporary fine art. Four years ago, Roudgar had been picked by the Chelsea district gallery to showcase her sculptures after winning a contest; however, she did not take part at that time. Last fall, she contacted the gallery and asked to participate in an upcoming group exhibit — titled Sensorial Perspectives — that ran March 2 to 17. Other artists in that show include Stefano Bertolucci, Karel de Beer, Peter F. Carr and Leon Holmes.
Left: Maternity (terracotta with patina) and, above, Woman Figure (bronze). Roudgar’s six sculptures now on display are made of patinated terracotta, bronze and
fibreglass. And they are are described by the gallery curator as “visceral and instantaneous with a
quiet, contemplative quality. “These sculptures speak to the constant, gentle rush of time against our lives. Using bold, fearless shapes and forms, Roudgar slices through the commonplace, bringing apparitions of beauty and poetry alive.” Exhibiting on the international scene is nothing new for Roudgar, an Italian immigrant who recently had a show in Tehran. Her next show will be in Russia. As well, she told The Tri-City News last week, “during the coming year, I will be focusing on a project to install one of my sculptures as an outdoor monument at the corner of Clarke and Barnet Highway in Port Moody.” firstname.lastname@example.org
Coupey tongue is découpé By Janis Warren
The Tri-CiTy NeWs
rtist Pierre Coupey, the founding editor of The Capilano Review and cofounder of The Georgia Straight, sat down with The Tri-City News this week to talk about his upcoming exhibit Cutting Out the Tongue: Selected Work 1976-2012 that opens on Saturday at the Evergreen Cultural Centre. Coupey has 18 pieces in the Coquitlam show and 21 works in a concurrent display at the West Vancouver Museum, both of which end on April 27. Here is an excerpt of the interview: Tri-City News: Is it a retrospective? Pierre Coupey: It’s a survey because a retrospective implies a full look back. A survey is a partial look back and this is not even a large survey. It’s small. I’ve been painting since I was 15 and this is only covering 1976 to the present. Four decades. TCN: How did you narrow the selection? PC: Well, you have to deal with the space that you’ve got. We’re not showing any prints. We’re not showing any drawings. Only paintings: acrylic on paper and canvas in the earlier ones and, since about 1992, it’s oil on paper and canvas. TCN: Who is the exhibit for? PC: The question of audience is a very difficult one. When you come from the world of poetry as I do, the audience is probably fairly limited. My work is not for the marketplace. I’m not doing it for popularity. And I’m not doing it for commercial purposes. I’m doing it because I damned well want to do it, the way I want to do it. TCN: What does the survey say about you? PC: What I think we’re trying to say about the survey is that I primarily work in clusters, in groups, and not that they’re necessarily progressing in a linear, chronological order.... I think it says that I’ve been committed to paint-

ing for a good, long time. TCN: Do you like what you see? PC: Yeah. It’s interesting because usually when I hang a show of new work, I can’t stand it. It really bothers me because I can see all
of the flaws. You want to start over and tear it apart. TCN: Has your palette changed over the years? PC: Yes, it does change and I think you’ll see that in the third show this spring at Gallery Jones [April 3 to 27, in Vancouver], the gallery that represents my work. It is called Field Work. Those are all from 2010, and yet the palette in these ones [shown in Coquitlam] is largely the yellows and the chromatic greys. TCN: Why “Cutting Out the Tongue”? Isn’t that a bit harsh for a former editor? PC: Yes, it’s self-mutilation.... It has a lot of implications. For Matisse [the French painter who coined the phrase], it was simply, “Stop talking about the work. Just do it.” Or, as my father would say, “Less speech and more action. Don’t daydream about it and don’t build a castle in the sky. Just get down to the work.” And that is one thing that is true about me. I will not talk about what I’m going to do. That’s one reason why I dislike artists’ statements.

COURTESY OF EVERGREEN CULTURAL CENTRE
TCN: What inspires you today? PC: The things that always inspire me. I know that I derive my sources from poetry, from writers who I love and honour and respect. I’m rooted in the tradition of William Carlos Williams, Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot and the Black Mountain [poets]. One of the reasons that I came to Vancouver [from Montreal] is because the new work in poetry that was being done here with the TISH people like George Bowering and Daphne Marlatt. TCN: As part of your exhibit, you have a group poetry reading on March 22 with Lary Bremner, Meredith Quartermain and George Stanley. Why aren’t you reading, too? PC: Because I cut off the tongue! • The opening reception for Cutting Out the Tongue: Selected Work 1976-2012 is on Saturday, March 17 from 4 to 6 p.m. Pierre Coupey will speak about his exhibit from 3 to 4 p.m. The group poetry reading is March 22 from 7 to 9 p.m. email@example.com

Tomorrow is the last chance art and fashion lovers will be able to get up and close with entries from this year’s Wearable Arts competition — and cast ballots for their favourite garment. Dozens of award-winning works from around the world are on display at the Port Moody Arts Centre until March 14 as
part of the annual exhibit sponsored in part by The Tri-City News. And, sometime next week, show organizers will announce name of the winner of the People’s Choice award. Committee chairperson Ann Kitching said Wearable Arts gives emerging artists a platform to showcase their talent. “That’s the great
thing is that everybody can try to do it,” she said. “With Wearable Arts, you can have an outfit made by a 15-year-old girl next to one done by an 80-year-old man. “I mean, only your imagination is holding you back for a competition like this.” PMAC (2425 St. John’s St.) is open Thursday until 8 p.m.

O Canada! PoMo film fest has stars, winners By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News
A Quebec film that last week swept the inaugural Canadian Screen Awards (CSA) will launch the 13th annual Port Moody Canadian Film Festival tomorrow. Rebelle/War Witch took 10 of the 12 categories it was nominated in at the CSA including for Best Motion Picture and Achievement in Direction for telling a tale about a pregnant 14-year-old girl in sub-Saharan Africa who was kidnapped by the rebel army. The Oscar-nominated flick is one of six movies at the film fest that were selected by the Port Moody Film Society and its artistic director, Brad Williams. He offered his shortlist to the committee after viewing about 30 movies at the Whistler Film Festival and the Vancouver International Film Festival. “This year, there seemed to be a real lack of comedies,” Williams said, adding, “We try to balance out the movies — there was one stand-out documentary that we just couldn’t get in time — so, as a result, we have ended up with six dramas for our festival. “Sometimes, that’s just the way it goes.” In past years the PoMo film fest was bigger, screening more titles and holding workshops for filmmakers and actors; however, lack of government and corporate sponsorship has meant the society has had to scale down its showcase. “We’ve had to be more precise,” Williams said. Williams said the festival films are tailored to the Port Moody crowd, which he describes as “intelligent.” And it also doesn’t shy away from for-

Another win for Habkirk
Riverside struggles at B.C. tourney
By Maria Spitale-Leisk THe Tri-CiTy News
It was a seventh place finish for the Riverside Rapids at the B.C. senior girls Triple A basketball championships — the team’s seventh provincial appearance in a row. Unfortunately for Riverside, lucky numbers were no match for the solid South Kamloops Titans squad, which won their second straight provincial title at the Langley Events Centre on Saturday. The Rapids met the Titans in the quarter finals of the tournament, in a game best described as a blowout. “We were playing the number one ranked team and our kids didn’t think they could compete,” said Rapids’ coach Paul Langford in a postseason interview with The Tri-City News on Monday. And even though Kamloops came on strong out of the gate, the game wasn’t a total wash for Rapids’ shooting guard Desha Puri, who went five-for-eight from the three-point line in the 84-44 decision. Port Coquitlam was then matched up with another Okanagan team, the Kelowna Owls. Langford noted that Rapids’ forward Fiona Beales — who recorded a double-double — played outstanding offensively and defensively during the game which ended in favour of Riverside, 59-66. In their final game, of the tournament, the Rapids played the Argyle Pipers for fifth and seventh placement. Riverside was up by one at the end of the half. see LAngfORd, page 31

Calgary from March 2024. Alexia Iten, Rene Bell and Breanna Riou-Green from Anmore, Coquitlam and Port Moody respectively, compete for BC
Aquasonics. “Our athletes have been training extremely hard since August preparing for this comp e t i t i o n ,” s ay s B C
Aquasonics head coach Susan Kemper in a press release. “In this sport we train 15 to 25 hours a week at the high performance level.
Coquitlam’s Team Habkirk are ‘rock stars’ on the provincial curling scene this year. Fresh off their win at the high school curling provincials last week, the boys took gold at the Tim Hortons BC Juvenile Curling Championships in Prince George this past weekend. Team Habkirk — made up of skip Kyle Habkirk, third Nicholas Umbach, second Ryan Harbrink and lead Kento Sato — got off to a slow start at the beginning of the tournament. Despite winning the first game, coach Debbie Carroll said the boys played a little too relaxed. Next up, in roundplay, the team took on North Shore Winter Club’s Jay Ueda, giving up a four ender in the seventh end. Down 7-5, going into the last end with the hammer, team Habkirk managed to tie up the game. But, in the extra end, without the hammer, there was no opportunity for them to steal. Ueda won the game, 9-7. Carroll said afterwards she sat the boys down for a pep talk. “I told them ‘You guys have all the tools,’” said Carroll. “I didn’t think the communication was where it should be. I said, ‘Find that energy that you guys had in the juniors and high school championships.’” The 7-0 score after
f i v e e n d s of play in the semifinal game against HAbkIRk t e a m Carpenter signaled that Team Habkirk was reenergized, but perhaps feeling a little too comfortable with their lead. “In the six end, they didn’t make a strategy change to defense,” recalled Carroll. “They were on such a roll that in the sixth end they gave up three.” In the seventh end, with a berth in the finals now hanging in the balance, Habkirk called for Sato to put his rocks in the rings after team Carpenter had put up a centre guard. Carroll reminded her team to switch to a defensive strategy. Habkirk ran Carpenter out of the rocks in the eight end, winning the game, 7-4. The final game saw Habkirk matched up with Bartlett from Grand Forks, a team which they had beat 10-2 in round-robin play. In the fourth end, after already gaining a point, Habkirk missed a tricky tap back for second point. Then, in the next end, Bartlett jammed on a final rock, missing a deuce. Habkirk sailed into the final end with a four point lead and won the game, 7-3. “I don’t think any of us could believe it,” said Carroll of the moments after the gold medal win. see I HAd, page 31

‘I had tears again in my eyes,’ says Team Habkirk coach continued from page 30
“It’s like, we are now Team BC. I had tears again in my eyes because you are just so happy for them.” The team’s emotions were already running high after last week’s win, not to mention this is Habkirk’s last year in juvenile curling, added Carroll. Immediately after the game, Team Habkirk was fitted for Team BC jackets and T-shirts. The boys from Coquitlam will now be representing B.C. in the Optimist International U-18 Curling Championships being held in Surrey and

hotel in Langley. Aside from competition, the week-long event will also feature curling clinics and entertainment. “It’s almost like a mini Brier for the boys,” said
Carroll. In their draw, Habkirk will see teams from Manitoba, Japan, Wa s h i n g t o n S t a t e , Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories. “I’m nervous. Manitoba and Saskatchewan, all they do back there is curl,” laughed Carroll.
Langford praises team after defeat continued from page 30
Argyle then took control of the game, leaving the Rapids with no opportunity to recover. “We didn’t have enough left in tank,” said Langford, of the nine points separating his team from tying the game. Looking back on the season, Langford has nothing but praise for the girls, especially graduating players Puri, Beales, Chelsey
Sanchez and Megan Cornish. “They are five of the nicest kids around,” said Langford. Beales, who will play for Simon Fraser University this fall, made honourable mention for the tournament all-star team, and also scored two schola rships — a $ 2 , 0 0 0 p r ov i n c i a l prize and the $1,000 Quinn Keast Memorial Scholarship. These honours are awarded to players who not
only excel at the sport, but also maintain a high academic standing and a commitment to community service. “She’s phenomenal,” said Langford, explaining how Beales volunteers as a coach and referee for the local multi-age basketball program, Just a Bunch of Girls(JABOG). “She’s a tremendous mentor to the rest of the program.” And with Riverside’s junior girls finishing fourth in the province,
Langford is looking ahead to next season, which holds plenty of promise. The longtime Rapids coach also has a basketball prodigy on his hands, in eighthgrader Shae Sanchez who was called up to the senior team this year. “She’s a pretty good player, a provincially recognized [basketball] kid,” said Langford. “So the future looks good [for the Rapids].” email@example.com
