Tri-Cities steps up to the plate to help Reds By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The Coquitlam Reds Baseball Club is finding out who its friends are in the wake of a disastrous theft that left its equipment shed in shambles. L a s t We d n e s d ay, thieves broke into the locked shed at Mundy Park and made off with $8,000 in gear, including a John Deere tractor, eight dozen new baseballs, hats and the Reds’ distinctive uniforms. The thieves also ransacked the concession area and stole all of the club’s food supplies for upcoming games, including pop, chips, candy, Gatorade, ketchup and mustard. But as news of the theft was broadcast and published by local media outlets over the weekend,

WARNING Police say to be careful on local trails See page A4 including The Tri-City News, the Reds’ U-18 and U-16 baseball teams learned they had plenty of fans and supporters. The media coverage led to the recovery of the tractor last Friday night and, although the rest of the equipment and food is still missing, members of the community have come forward with pledges of food and even cash donations to help the teams get through the remainder of the season. see ‘TALK ABOUT’, page A6

SAR sent an app, then a chopper By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

JANIS WARREN/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Terry Fox secondary school student Olivia Leon, 16, of Port Coquitlam is one of 10 provincial representatives from the Coquitlam District Music Festival to compete next week in the annual Performing Arts of BC fest. More than 1,500 young musicians, dancers and actors — and their supporters — from around the province will descend on Chilliwack from May 26 to 30 for the adjudicated events. For more, see Arts, page A19.

Need to be rescued from a mountaintop? Three young hikers found out over the weekend that there’s an app for that. Coquitlam Search and Rescue volunteers were called at 7 p.m. Sunday to rescue three 23-yearold hikers who got lost

on the Dilly Dally Trail out of Buntzen Lake. The three men had all done the hike before but snow at the top of Eagle Ridge had obscured the trail and they were unable to find their way down. They did not have a GPS unit and carried only minimal equipment with them. see THREE HIKERS, page A4

Reprieve for Belcarra cottages but residents are still worried By Diane Strandberg Linda Reimer, MLA-elect, in Port Moody-Coquitlam.

The Tri-CiTy NewS

Residents living in 1940s-era summer cottages in Belcarra Regional Park that are rented from Metro Vancouver have won a small victory in their bid to stay. Last Thursday, Metro’s environment and parks committee deferred a decision to consider demolishing the seven cabins, which are maintained by the Belcarra South Preservation Society, after hearing from residents. Metro’s central area manager, Frieda Schade, said staff will take another look at the matter before the committee next meets. “[The committee] want a little more information,” she said, but noted the cabins are in poor shape and need almost $800,000 in repairs, money Metro Vancouver doesn’t have and couldn’t make back in 30 years with residents’ rental payments. The residents argue they have been living and maintaining the rustic cottages for years and want to find away to stay in the buildings. “It’s one of the jewels in the whole park system and we are grateful to live within it,” said the society’s Jo Ledingham. Three generations of her family have lived there, she told the committee, “I love the park. I love the land I am on. I am very connected to it.” In an interview with The Tri-City News, Ledingham says the cost estimate for repairs is overblown and based on bringing the buildings up

Quitting on Jan. 1 could stop byelection By Diane Strandberg

The Tri-CiTy NewS

Seven cottages in Belcarra Regional Park have been occupied for decades but now they need expensive repairs and Metro Vancouver, which owns them, is considering tearing them down. to heritage standard, and would be much cheaper of the residents did the work themselves. The group looks after the area on the south end of the park, hidden by trees, and patrols against late-night beach parties. It has installed a water system that is regularly tested by Fraser Health and made many other improvements, Ledingham argues. She’s worried the deferral will delay any decision and action the group might take, bringing it closer to the Aug. 31 date of eviction without a resolution. But Schade said a condition assessment performed on the buildings in 2012 found that all of the major systems — water, sewer and plumbing — as well as the buildings themselves need upgrading. The cabins, built in the 1940s, were never intended for year round use and could present a liability to Metro Vancouver now that the extent of efficiencies is known. “Now that we’ve had

them inspected and we know what we know, we need to have those cabins brought up to a decent standard,”Schade said. But with the cost being prohibitive, she said, demolition is recommended and in their place a modest public trail along the waterfront would be built. She said the residents have been offered rental accommodation in other Metro Vancouver housing. Ledingham said she doesn’t want to move and neither do the other residents, who have set up a website to make their case. And she said knocking down the buildings will be the end of an era. “I really think we need to start holding on to some things from the past,” she said, noting that the small cottages from Crescent Beach to the Sunshine Coast have largely disappeared, replaced by million-dollar homes. Meanwhile, there are no plans to tear down another house with heritage value also located

in the park. Schade said Bole House, associated with lawyer and early Belcarra pioneer John Percy Hampton Bole,

also needs repairs but Metro Vancouver hopes to find money to preserve it and is looking for suggestions from the city of

Port Moody and village of Belcarra about future uses. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com – with files from Jeff Nagel

If MLA-elect Linda Reimer decides to keep her Coquitlam council seat to avoid forcing a byelection, she would only need to do the two jobs until next July — and could even quit as early as Jan. 1, according to the Coquitlam city clerk’s office. A city spokesperson, responding to a story in last Friday’s Tri-City News, said Reimer needn’t stay on until the November 2014 civic election to avoid a byelection, which would cost about $140,000. Lauren Hewson said the Local G ove r n m e n t A c t would permit a Jan. 1, 2014 resignation as long as the number of remaining council members is one greater than quorum. As well, council would have to approve the resignation. No vote would be necessary if she resigns after July 1, 2014, according to the Local Government Act. see EIGHT MLAS, page A4

Three hikers were choppered to safety continued from front page

A prototype software “app” developed by a Coquitlam SAR volunteer was sent to the hikers via text message. TheYourLo.ca/tion app was developed after SAR volunteers found lost hikers often didn’t know how to use the GPS function on their phones to display their location. It’s based on a similar application being used in the U.K. that determines a subject’s location, along with an estimate of the error (Google Maps and other smart phone map applications can include a degree of error that

might be off by thousands of meters). When the stranded hikers on Eagle Ridge downloaded it, the app sent their position back to SAR managers and let the hikers know rescuers were on their way and to expect a helicopter. The hikers were spotted from the air in a steep area a long way from trails on Eagle Ridge, about a third of the way down from the top. The chopper was unable to land but searchers dropped the stranded men clothing, food, water and a radio. Seven SAR members were then dropped at a

landing area on top of the ridge and, equipped with ice axes, crampons and ropes, they were able to reach the hikers after about five hours. The crew decided to wait until daylight, when North Shore Rescue would be able to perform a long-line extraction (HETS) of all 10 people, and were back at the command post by 8 a.m. Monday. (Coquitlam SAR is still waiting for its own HETS harness kit to be delivered, after which members will need to be trained to use it.) Coquitlam SAR said the hikers called for help early in the process,

which made locating them easier than if they had waited until dark. They’re reminding hikers that although recent warm weather has melted much of the snowpack, there will still be snow on Eagle Ridge well into June. The snow obscures trails and trail markers, makes hiking slower and increases the risk of slipand-fall injuries. Hikers are also reminded to carry a wilderness GPS, a map and compass — and to know how to use them — and to always bring enough clothing and food to handle an emergency. spayne@tricitynews.com

Eight MLAs are affected

Setting it straight An incorrect photo credit appeared with a picture of a coyote printed in the Friday, May 17 edition of The Tri-City News. The correct name of the photographer is Melanie Dann.

People using local parks and trails are being urged to exercise caution and to report suspicious activity to Coquitlam RCMP after two recent attacks. The unusual warning comes after an assault of a security guard near a trail at Chine Drive and Burleigh Avenue in Port Coquitlam in the early morning hours of April 23 as well as the discovery of a body on the trails in Colony Farm Regional Park May 12.

Coquitlam RCMP’s Major Crimes Unit is investigating the PoCo incident while the regional Integrated Homicide Investigation team is handling the Colony Farm killing. Last week IHIT identified the man whose body was found as 44-year-old Maple Ridge resident Clifford Arthur Devitt. Police say there is no evidence at this time to suggest the two files are related, and both ap-

pear to be random attacks. People are asked to travel with a group if heading into secluded area, to avoid using headphones or getting distracted by technology, and to report anything suspicious to 911 or Coquitlam RCMP’s non-emergency line, 604-945-1550. Anyone with information about either investigation can also contact Crime Stoppers at www.solvecrime.ca.

The information comes as Reimer researches the possibility of staying on with council, a situation facing approximately eight other MLAs who were elected to the provincial legislature last Tuesday. Following her narrow win over the NDP candidate Joe Trasolini in the riding of Port Moody-Coquitlam, Reimer said it is important to look into the possibility of holding both positions. “It’s something I’ll have to discuss with my colleagues,” she said last week. But she said she had lots of issues to consider, such as whether she could do both jobs satisfactorily. Reimer noted, for example, that she might have to miss Monday night council meetings when the legislature is sitting. There’s also the issue of remuneration and Reimer said one idea would be to donate one salary to charity. She promised to make an informed decision. It’s possible Reimer will be heading to Victoria sooner rather than later. Premier Christy Clark has stated there may be a summer session, with a sitting no later than the fall.

Former Coq. resident believed kidnapped The family of a former Coquitlam resident missing in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico since May 8 believes he was kidnapped. Diego Hernandez, 22, joined his mother in Mexico about two years ago and had been working as a martial arts in-

structor. The family believes Hernandez and his business partner, 31-year-old Arizona resident Craig Silva, were kidnapped after they received a ransom call less than a week after the men disappeared. A few days before

their disappearance, the men had put on a mixed martial arts event. Hernandez’s aunt has reported they were about to withdraw a sizeable amount of cash to pay some of the bills from that event just before they went missing.

Mexican authorities have since located Silva’s vehicle, a 2003 black Chevy Trailblazer, and his bank card has also been used by an unidentified person. Hernandez’s aunt has also said there is footage of her nephew at a Puerto

Coquitlam RCMP bust drug lab

Vallarta bank machine, where he was seen with two other men. The family has also set up a Facebook page (facebook.com/helpfindandbringhomecraiganddiego) to provide updates and to ask for help in locating the men.

Anyone with information about the two men is asked to contact the Canadian consulate in Puerto Vallarta at 322293-0098 or pvrta@international.gc.ca, or the U.S. consulate at 322-222-0069 or consularagentpvr@ prodigy.net.mx.

Haversley home raided Thursday No charges have yet been laid after Coquitlam Mounties raided a drug lab last week. Acting on a tip, Coquitlam RCMP searched a home in the 1700-block of Haversley Avenue in Coquitlam, where a suspected drug lab was found Thursday evening. “First, we have indication to suggest there was a [clandestine] lab there — based on the smell and history of the house,”said Coquitlam RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jamie Chung. “Whether there is a lab in there or not we have to wait for the [RCMP E-Division Clandestine Lab Team] expert [for confirmation].” No charges have been laid at this point; however, two people who were at the home at the time of the incident were arrested, added Chung. Coquitlam Fire and Rescue were called by the RCMP for decontamination assistance at the scene.

MASTER TRANSPORTATION PLAN

Let’s talk... transportation elaine fleury file photo

A break-in at the Coquitlam Reds clubhouse last week cost the club food and equipment — and now the community has stepped up to help with donations for the baseball team’s concession stand.

‘Talk about turning a negative into a positive’ continued from front page

“It’s been awesome,” said coach Wes Taylor, “Talk about turning a negative into a positive.” Even before the tractor was recovered, the community came together to support the Reds. Taylor said a bakery in Port Coquitlam offered to supply cupcakes for Saturday’s double-header against Victoria while the Port Coquitlam SaveOn-Foods has offered to help replenish the club’s concession supplies. “The community is stepping forward to do what ever it can to help,”Taylor said. According to a press release, the thieves broke

PLAY BALL

The Coquitlam Reds host the Victoria Mariners at Mundy Park beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday and will host an exhibition double-header versus North Delta, beginning at 4 p.m. on Sunday. For the complete schedule, visit www.coquitlamreds.com in to the club’s shed at 641 Hillcrest St. sometime between 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15 and 10:30 a.m. Thursday, May 16. The police say an anonymous tip led to the recovery of the John Deere tractor and the investigation is continuing. Police are asking anyone who saw suspicious behaviour or who have information about the items to contact the

Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file 2013-13487. Anyone wishing to provide information anonymously can contact Crime Stoppers by phone: 1-800-222-8477 or www.solvecrime.ca. The missing uniforms should be easy to spot: The jerseys are red with “C-RED”printed on them. Meanwhile, there are lingering concerns about security at the park. Reds’

general manager Bill Green said the shed has been broken into before and he would like to see more security in the area. But according to city spokesperson Wendy Wiederick, the city relies on community members who enjoy the park amenities to keep an eye on activities, and sports organizations are encouraged to work with security system providers to protect their assets. “The Coquitlam Reds built and maintain the building in Mundy Park and would be responsible for their own security needs,” Wiederick said in an email. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Infertility test now at Eagle Ridge Hospital By Sarah Payne The Tri-CiTy News

Women in the TriCities can now have a common infertility test done close to home. Eagle Ridge Hospital recently became one of the few sites in the Lower Mainland to offer the hysterosalpingogram (HSG), which can identify the cause of a woman’s inability to become pregnant. The test is already

available and Shenaz Karim, site co-ordinator for medical imaging at ERH, estimates up to 500 women from throughout the Lower Mainland will be booking the test each year if current demand continues. The test takes about 10 to 15 minutes and involves inserting an X-ray dye into the pelvic area so the radiologist can see any obstructions in the uterus and fallopian tubes.

Two Cottonwood residents sought Coquitlam RCMP are seeking the public’s help in locating two men who have gone missing from Cottonwood Lodge. Michael Louis Andrews, 55, was last seen by staff members just before 9 p.m. on Friday, May 17. He’s described as a Caucasian man, 5’10” tall and weighing 150 lb. He has medium-length salt-and-pepper brown hair, trimmed facial hair, ANDREWS brown eyes and a fair complexion. It’s not known what type of clothing he was wearing at the time he went missing. Another man, 61-year-old Ronald Hansen, went missing from Cottonwood at 5 p.m. last Thursday, May 16. He’s described as a Caucasian man, 5’11” and weighing 146 lb. He has short brown hair and blue eyes and was last seen wearing HANSEN dark jeans and green runners. Coquitlam RCMP said they’ve received reports of several possible sightings and they’re following up on each of them. Both men suffer from mental disorders and should not be approached.

GET IN TOUCH

Anyone who spots either of the missing men is asked to call their local police immediately, or if you have information as to their whereabouts, contact Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2013-13644 (Michael Andrews) or 2013-13562 (Ronald Hansen). spayne@tricitynews.com

in Fraser Health that offer the test — Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster was the closest option, followed by hospitals in Langley, Abbotsford and Chilliwack. Giovanetti-King said ERH was able to offer the service after replacing an old fluoroscopy unit with one that is capable of doing a range of tests. The hospital’s radiologist, Dr. Gary Sidhu, is

also one of the few who are trained in the procedure. Sidhu said he has worked at five other large hospitals across Canada but none of them have offered their own HSG testing. “There are very few sites in the Lower Mainland that still do this test because I believe the expertise for doing this test among radiologists has diminished,” Sidhu said in a release. spayne@tricitynews.com

No trans. vote

PICTURE THIS adrian raeside

Dear Madam Premier, Congratulations on your stunning win. Now, with a secure mandate for the next four years, it’s time to stop campaigning and get on with the business of running the government. The first order of your new mandate should be to stop dickering with TransLink over funding options and come up with a realistic method of financing roads, bridges and transit in the Lower Mainland. You are far enough away from the next election to be able to take some leadership on this file, and you have an able helmsman in MLA-elect Peter Fassbender, the former vice-chair of the TransLink mayor’s council to help you through this political morass. What we don’t want to see is a referendum on TransLink financing. That might have been a good sound bite during an election campaign but it doesn’t make any sense. For one thing, voter turnout in civic elections is even worse than in provincial elections, and it would be unfair to enable the motivated few — say, folks in urban, transit-rich Vancouver — to vote against new initiatives, thereby eliminating any chances for better transit in more distant ’burbs — such as Surrey and the Tri-Cities. Road pricing, tolls, fares, the sharing of the carbon tax — any number of these ideas should be open and on the table, with you leading the discussion. TransLink has already looked under the couch for change and has found millions of dollars worth of efficiencies. Could more be found? Possibly, but there needs to be some willingness by the provincial government to share the burden and to work with the federal government on more equitable infrastructure sharing agreements, possibly through an enhancement of the gas tax fund. While you are looking into the TransLink funding gap, it might also be time to overhaul the way decisions are made. TransLink’s structure — an appointed board of directors in control of all decisions except major revenue increases — is an anomaly worldwide; most other cities have democratically elected representatives who answer directly to their constituents. If you’re going to take credit for the wins (the Evergreen Line, for example), you have to be prepared to get in the mud and continue the hard work.

Polarized politics costly in B.C. Is it now over? BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA ne benefit of the surprising fourth term for the BC Liberal Party is that the provincial government won’t be subjected to another big, expensive ideological remake. Taxpayers are spared a bill of millions in severance pay for deputy ministers and other senior staff who would be purged in large numbers in the left-right lurch that has defined B.C. politics for a generation.  BC Ferries will continue as an arms-length operation, with ferry commissioner Gord Macatee in charge of service levels as well as fare caps. The service rationalization that the government set out in the past year will continue. The NDP platform vowed to“position BC Ferries as an integral part of B.C.’s transportation infrastructure.”Freely translated, that means:“suck BC Ferries back into govern-

O

ment,”as one of the NDP’s strident supporters likes to say. That would conceal the growth of the subsidy and facilitate the kind of political and union interference that resulted in the current structure. There will be no $10-million rehash of the BC Rail sale and subsequent seven-year trial to enrich elite lawyers once again. The NDP promised an inquiry for strictly political reasons, to drag their opponents through the scandal one more time. It was not a prelude to“nationalizing”the province’s train service, dream scenarios of the NDP provincial council notwithstanding. Costly legal confrontations over development projects have been avoided. The Jumbo Glacier Resort proponents finally won a 20year fight for permits and the NDP promised to take them away. A larger ideological battle over private power contracts has also been avoided. The BC Liberals have been caught by a sudden shift in power markets caused by cheap, abundant natural gas but the billions in commitments to independent power producers isn’t the fiasco

that critics have described. If all those privately developed run-of-river hydro projects were owned and operated by BC Hydro, the Crown corporation would have to staff them and maintain them all for the next 40 years. There are differing views about the future demand for electricity in B.C. but it can only rise with industry and population growth. A decade of federal and provincial work to end duplication of environmental assessment won’t be undone. NDP leader Adrian Dix’s promise for“made-in-B.C.”reviews was a strategy to choke resource projects to death under endless procedure, which may yet be the fate of the Jumbo resort. We will have a seniors’ advocate office but it won’t be staffed up to duplicate the ombudsperson’s role of taking complaints. That’s good, since the Ombudsperson has become ineffective, labouring for years over a massive seniors’ report with so many recommendations it sank like a stone. Besides, we have 85 seniors’ advocates now. They’re called MLAs, and they definitely take

complaints. They have staffed offices in their home communities and in Victoria. When they’re not doing political work that everyone denies is going on in constituency offices, those office staffers try to help people through the labyrinth of seniors’ at-home and institutional care. A new seniors’ advocate can offer advice at the management level to help the health care system evolve but only elected politicians are positioned to tell individuals they can’t have what they are demanding. The government should be adding more direct services, not more bureaucrats. There will be many arguments about the failure of the NDP to win against an unpopular BC Liberal government that is still weighed down by the harmonized sales tax and other heavy baggage. But this election could be the beginning of the end for the old left-right model for B.C. politics.

What will become of cubs and mom? The Editor, Re. “Bears busy & hungry” (The Tri-City News, May 8). I was just thinking: 10 to 15 years from today, will there still be headlines about hungry bears? I can see the mother bear and her three cubs walking along Hyde Creek, showing the cubs the old resting place of their ancestors taking a break from their daily routine. While she rests, the mother bear tells the cubs… “It used to be so quiet here, they could hear ladybugs flying by. “Not today. “Lawnmowers, power washers, cars, dirt bikes changed all that. “It began a while ago. First one black strip along Hyde Creek, then it multiplied to two then four, eight, 16, 32… and now it’s halfway up the mountain.” The cubs listen to the story of green pastures,

The mother bear is telling the cubs about the “dead wood” that goes halfway up the mountain, nicely stacks in piles, side by side and in rows. Somebody put flowers in front of the dead wood, mourning the trees. It reminds her of the cemetery she and the cubs walk past every day. Now, her three cubs are getting restless and hungry. The mother bear feels

down and out, so she and her cubs do what some people who are down and out do: go looking for food in garbage cans — her only choice. Not today. Instead, she tells her cubs to close their eyes. She saw the conservation officer and just for a moment, the mother bear thought she could hear ladybugs flying by. The mother and cubs are no longer hungry. They are in a new resting place. H. Schaub, Pt. Coquitlam

nature of the work of art. I trust that propriety and integrity will prevail and that the flags in the traffic circle will continue to grace the city of Port Moody’s identity. David Spence, Port Moody

www.kingoflife.ca

The Editor, I was pleased with the decision of Port Moody city council on May 14 to follow Coun. Rick Glumac’s motion to reconsider the placement of flag poles in front of the civic plaza’s traffic circle, especially in relationship with the flag poles that could be an integral part of the new fire hall complex. According to “Flag Etiquette in Canada” (a publication available from Canadian Heritage), “Flags are symbols that identify people belonging to a group. The National Flag of Canada and the flags of the provinces and municipalities are symbols of honour and pride for all Canadians.” Indeed, the flags in front of Port Moody city hall are significant symbols of community identity, integrity and dignity. They are a display of who we are and how we understand ourselves one with another. To propose that the flag poles be removed from the front and centre of the civic plaza off to one side, and then to be replaced by a large work of art is a disgrace and, frankly, an insult. The suggested removal of the flag poles off the central entrance to city hall is

Tri-City MP Moore calls on Mike Duffy to quit Senate By Jeff Nagel Black Press

The senior federal Conservative cabinet minister from B.C. is calling on Senator Mike Duffy to resign in the wake of a growing scandal over improper repayment of expenses. Heritage Minister James Moore, the MP for Port Moody-WestwoodPort Coquitlam, told CTV Tuesday Duffy should resign altogether. Duffy has already quit the Conservative caucus in the Senate after the disclosure that Nigel Wright, chief of staff for Prime Minister Stephen Harper, gave the embattled senator a cheque for $90,000 to repay expenses that may

Port Moody-Westwood-Port Coquitlam MP James Moore. have been improperly claimed. Wright has since resigned his post. Under pressure to provide a public explanation of what happened, Prime Minister Stephen Harper spoke to his caucus Tuesday morning in front of the media, who weren’t permitted to ask

questions. Harper said he was “not happy” and “very upset” about the conduct of some parliamentarians and of his own office, before leaving for South America on a trade mission. “Anyone who wants to use public office for their own benefit should make other plans or better yet leave this room,” Harper said. He said he didn’t get into politics to defend the Senate, a reference to his long-standing position it should be reformed as an elected body.  The NDP Opposition have called for an RCMP investigation and the federal ethics commissioner is investigating. The Senate’s conflict

of interest code forbids senators from accepting any gift or benefit “that could reasonably be considered to relate to the senator’s position.” The Parliament of Canada Act specifies that senators may not receive compensation “for services rendered ... in relation to any bill, proceeding, contract, claim, controversy, charge, accusation, arrest or other matter before the Senate or the House of Commons.” Those who offer such compensation may be liable to imprisonment for up to a year. Two o t h e r s e n a tors have also quit the Conservative caucus amid ongoing expense audits. jnagel@blackpress.ca

Spring runoff water levels have peaked on the lower Fraser River and the high streamflow advisory was lifted Monday for the river at Quesnel, Fraser Canyon, Hope and the Lower Mainland. Fraser River levels started easing on the weekend, after the river gauge at Mission reached a high of 5.6 m on Friday afternoon but the river and tributaries are expected to continue to run high for the rest of the week. B.C.’s River Forecast Centre warned that the potential for heavy rain in the Interior this week could cause a further level and streamflow rise in the Lower Fraser. Upstream of Prince George, the Fraser River system peaked late last week, after cooler and wetter than normal conditions in late April. Snow levels were near normal in most areas of B.C. after this winter. The Nechako and Vancouver Island regions had below normal snowpacks, with moderately high snow accumulations in the North Thompson, South Thompson, Okanagan Kettle and Stikine watersheds. The Upper Fraser had the highest snowpack, more than 120% of normal.

Metro Vancouver may order public meetings on coal port dust risks By Jeff Nagel

cars, the coal jostles around and breaks up as it travels and continually emits dust.” A committee resolution opposing increased coal exports in the Fraser River estuary will go to a full vote of the Metro board May 24. A staff report had recommended the wording express “concern” rather than opposition, but the original resolution is advancing to the board.

Black Press

Metro Vancouver could order its own public meetings into controversial plans to build a new coal export terminal on the Fraser River in Surrey that opponents claim could risk public health. Senior officials at the regional district confirmed public meetings are possible on the application by the terminal proponent for a Metro air quality permit. The proposal by Fraser Surrey Docks is being considered by Port Metro Vancouver and coal dust emissions are a major concern of residents near the terminal and along the BNSF train route through White Rock, Surrey and Delta. Metro environment and parks committee chair Heather Deal said a decision on whether to hold public meetings will depend on the degree of public feedback to initial advertising by Metro of the permitting process. The meetings would not be full public hearings — as demanded by coal export opponents. They’ve criticized the transparency of the port’s review process and say the open house format used by Fraser Surrey Docks is designed to quell dissent. New open houses have been scheduled for the evening of May 23 and afternoon of May 25 at the Sheraton Guildford in Surrey. The issue was again before the Metro committee Thursday, where climate change activist and UBC political science professor Kathryn Harrison said the port’s consultations are fundamentally flawed. “This is a critical moment and a critical decision,”she said. UBC public health professor and preventative medicine specialist Erica Frank cited BNSF railway reports that 500 pounds to several thousand pounds of coal and coal dust escape the typical train car, exposing nearby residents to heavy metals contained in the coal dust. She said the coating agent used to encrust the coal loads to minimize dust is inadequately tested and can cause a “plywood effect” where the wind can rip large

Metro Vancouver is considering holding its own public hearing on a controversial plan to build a new coal export terminal in Surrey. plywood-like sheets off coal train loads. Fraser Surrey Docks CEO Jeff Scott said her statements are “very misleading.” He said the statistics she cited on escaping coal are from BNSF railway but are out of date, adding dust loss has dropped more than 85% since the adoption of various control methods. Almost all coal escapes in the U.S. within five miles of the mine, Scott said, and escaping dust is undetectable by the time trains reach the Canadian border. He said the binding agent is a glue-like substance. “It’s soluble. We think it’s safe to add to the coal and it’s been added to the coal for several years now — without issue.” Coal has been hauled by rail through Metro Vancouver for decades to a terminal in Deltaport and another in North Vancouver, where an expansion is already approved. The new Surrey terminal — which would handle four million tonnes per year — would increase Port Metro Vancouver’s coal-handling capacity by 8% to 54 million tonnes. It would add one more coal train round trip per day and create 50 jobs — half at the terminal and the rest running barges or reloading coal onto ocean-going ships at Texada Island. Scott said the planned dust-control system is very safe and reliable. Unloading of coal trains would be done in an enclosed area at the proposed terminal, and the conveyor belt and barge loading area would also be enclosed.

Barges would be sprayed with water to suppress dust before they sail. Asked if water could be sprayed onto the coal on barges while in transit, Scott said combination systems have been considered but aren’t yet thought necessary. Barges wouldn’t sail when winds exceed 40

kilometres per hour, but Richmond Coun. Harold Steves warned a squall stronger than that can whip up quickly. There are no plans so far to cover the barges or the rail cars. That’s a concern for the committee’s chair. “There have been studies done,” Deal said. “Unless they’re covered

There’s magic in book series that aren’t about Harry & Hogwarts A GOOD READ Barbara Weston

A

lthough the rush of kids reading the Harry Potter series has waned, many parents still ask me what I would recommend for children who loved Harry’s adventures and would like to read something similar — not to mention the new crop of eight- to 10-year-olds who are discovering Harry, Hermione and Ron for the first time and then branching out. The familiar theme of wizards and magic is found in The Magic Thief by Sarah Prineas, recommended for children in Grades 4 to 6. Conn is a young, homeless boy living on the streets of Wellmet who picks pockets to survive. One day, he mistakenly picks the pocket of master wizard Nevery Flinglas and takes his magic talisman, his“locus magicalicus.” Nevery is amazed when the boy is not killed and takes him home, first as his servant and, later, sends him to school as his apprentice. Find us on Facebook: search “Centennial Fun Fair”

While Nevery chooses Conn as apprentice, other wizards choose to have familiars. Recommended for Grades 4 to 6, The Familiars by Adam Jay Epstein and Andrew Jacobson tells the story of three animal companions that are also able to perform magic. Before attending school, children go to an unusual pet store, where they choose their familiar. Unfortunately Jack chooses a stray cat, Aldwyn, that is hiding in the shop and has no magical talents whatsoever. When disaster strikes, Aldwyn must use his street smarts to save the day. With a story line similar to Harry Potter’s,

Henry H. Neff introduces Max McDaniels in book one of The Tapestry series, The Hound of Rowan. Ordinary student Max discovers a faded tapestry during a visit to Chicago’s Art Institute with his father. After witnessing a strange vision within the tapestry, he finds an envelope in his pocket congratulating him on his registration

The Centennial Fun Fair

as a“Potential”and promising a visit from a regional representative. He is soon offered a scholarship to Rowan Academy, a private boarding school in New England. While there are similarities to J.K. Rowling’s work, I found the series has its own charm and held my attention easily. Halfway through the first book, I had stopped making comparisons to Harry Potter and was fully engrossed in Max’s story. Recommended for kids in Grades 5 and higher. Recommended for Grades 4 to 6, Ordinary Magic by Caitlen Rubino-Bradway is a reversal of the usual fantasy story. In a world where magical people and abilities are considered normal, children attend Judging Day to discover their magi-

cal potential. But a few children, such as Abby, are discovered to be “Ords,”ordinary children with no magical powers. Instead of being special, however, these children are shunned. Cast out or sold as slaves by their families, their life expectancy is short. Fortunately for Abby, she has a loving family that sends her to a special school — but with kidnappers and carnivorous goblins at every turn, her days may be numbered. These are but a few of the many Harry Potter read-alikes. For more suggestions, visit your local public library.

A Good Read is a column by Tri-City librarians that is published every Wednesday. Barbara Weston is children’s librarian at Coquitlam Public Library.

A seminar later this month at a Coquitlam seniors’ facility will offer plenty of food for thought. Jennifer Messina, a registered dietician and nutritionist, will host a seminar on“mindful eating” on Friday, May 31 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at Dogwood Pavilion. Mindful eating is not a diet — there are no menus or recipes — is a strategy for sustained weight loss that focuses on how you eat rather than what you eat. It is an approach to eating that involves paying attention to the process of eating, including: making choices to start or finish a meal based on awareness of hunger; watching for cues for mindless eating; increasing the quality of your meal, not the quantity; and more. Messina will share practical ideas that will help participants on a daily basis be more mindful of what and how they are eating. The fee for this seminar is $5 and pre-registration is required. To register and for more information, call 604-927-4386.

CDMF reps brace for the provincials Performing Arts of BC festival in Chilliwack to see up to 1,500 participants and their supporters next week By Janis Warren

JANIS WARREN/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Olivia Leon, 16, a Rock School student of Steve Sainas’ at Terry Fox secondary in Port Coquitlam, is the provincial representative for the Coquitlam District Music Festival (CDMF) in the category of intermediate musical theatre. The provincials will be held in Chilliwack this year from May 26 to 30.

The CDMF prOviNCiAl reps: PIANO  Junior: Fraser Jang-Milligan (Vancouver) Intermediate: ChristyYip (Richmond) Senior: Lillian Tseng (Port Moody) National: Kelly Kim (Maple Ridge) MUSICAL THEATRE  Junior: Sam Ellington (Port Moody)

Intermediate: Olivia Leon (Port Coquitlam) Senior: Tiana Jung (Port Moody)   CLASSICAL VOICE  Junior: Lydia Querengesser (Pitt Meadows) Intermediate: Hannah Gee (Burnaby)   SPEECH Intermediate: Timothy Sayson (Richmond) — provided by CDMF president Harold Peters

The Tri-CiTy NeWs

ydia Querengesser, 13, has a been a songbird since she was a child. But, three years ago, her Coquitlam vocal coach — soprano Maria Cristina Fantini — suggested she switch genres from contemporary to classical.  It was a move that forever changed Querengesser. “It was the perfect music for my voice type,” the Pitt Meadows resident said.“I remember thinking, ‘This is it!’” Last year,  Querengesser also took Fantini’s advice and signed up to compete in the Coquitlam District Music Festival (CDMF), which is held annually in Port Coquitlam in February and March.  It was the first time she had taken part in the competition that sees hundreds of young musicians and actors from around Metro Vancouver vie for a chance to win a spot at the provincials. Querengesser performed three songs — including Mozart’s Ridente la calma — and came out tops in all her categories: classical junior solo, sacred solo and junior art song. At next week’s Performing Arts of BC fest,  Querengesser will be the regional representative in classical junior solo. “I’m really excited to go,” the articulate girl said. “It’s a step in the right direction because it gives me time to perform and it lets me show off my gift.” She added, “I’m really excited to meet everybody in my category. There are not a lot of 13-year-olds singing the style that I am.” Between Sunday and May 30, hundreds of promising young musicians, dancers and actors who have been picked as representatives in one of this year’s 34 local or regional festivals around B.C. will descend on the Fraser Valley community to be adjudicated at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre and various downtown churches. Co-hosted by the Chilliwack Lions Club, the festival is expected to be a major tourism boon, generating some $400,000 in economic spin-offs for hotels, restaurants and other businesses. Laurie Hirschman, an organizing committee member, said many dreams will be born at the festival, with some

contestants selected to advance to the nationals. “This is the future of the arts,” she said.  “These are the kids who, even if they don’t win, it often inspires them to go on to do even better in their chosen endeavours.” For Port Coquitlam’s Olivia Leon, who is also instructed by Fantini at Blue River Music Studio, she is confident with her repertoire. At CDMF, the Grade 11 Terry Fox secondary student placed first in the jazz category with her rendition of My Foolish Heart; second in both the musical theatre comedy and pop sections, with the tunes Gimme Gimme (Thoroughly Modern Millie) and Give Your Heart a Break (Demi Lovato); and third in musical theatre ballad with Unusual Way (Nine). A student of Coquitlam’s Lindbjerg Academy who plans to pursue musical theatre in Canada after graduating, Leon is the CDMF rep in the intermediate musical theatre division. She will reprise Gimme Gimme and sing Someone LikeYou (Jekyll and Hyde). “It’s my first time at the provincials and they are a big thing. I’m very excited to be going,”Leon said.  • The opening gala for the Performing Arts BC festival is on Sunday at 7 p.m. at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre (9201 Corbould St.). Tickets are $15 or $50 for a family. Visit www.bcprovincials.com. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Art auction for PoMo charity A White Rock artist is hosting an online auction supporting an initiative to pair shoes with people in need. April Lacheur will hold the auction of her artwork until the end of the month, with funds benefitting Ruben’s Shoes — a Port Moody charity that sends gently used shoes to children and adults in underdeveloped countries. Fo r e v e r y p i e c e Lacheur sells, 100 per cent of the proceeds will be donated to help with shipping the shoes. As well, 25% of any non-auction item purchased from her store will go towards the charity. Ruben’s Shoes was established by Port Moody resident Kelly Strongitharm after she met her sponsor child, Ruben, in the Dominican Republic. Seeing the need for shoes spurred her to begin in the charity last December. To bid at the online auction, visit www.32auctions.com/ yapespaints before May 31. To shop at the online store, visit www.

Coquitlam picks up two more victories By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

Coquitlam Jr. Adanac’s runner Chase McIntyre scored two goals, including one power play marker, on Saturday in a 12-6 win over the Victoria Shamrocks at the Bear Mountain Arena.

Jr. Adanacs soar as Saints struggle The Tri-CiTy News

The Coquitlam Adanacs continue to climb up the B.C. Junior ‘A’ Lacrosse League Standings after posting another win on the weekend. The club is now in third place in the league, two points behind the first place Delta Islanders with a 4-2-0 record. Coquitlam’s latest victory came at the expense of the Victoria Shamrocks, who strug-

gled to score during Saturday’s outing at the Bear Mountain Arena. Adanacs runners Spencer Stevens and Steven Neufeld both had hat tricks in the game, while Andy Taylor led the club in scoring with five assists. The visitors jumped out to an early lead, taking advantage of several Shamrock penalties. Victoria struggled to kill penalties, allowing six goals when Coquitlam had the man advantage. The Adanacs had a 4-2 lead after the first

frame and added six more in the second period. Goals from Neufeld and Matt Symes in the third sealed the deal for Victoria, who lost the game 12-6. But while Coquitlam is moving up in the standings, the Port Coquitlam Saints have started to slide downwards. The club split a pair of weekend games, losing 10-7 to the N e w We s t m i n s t e r Salmonbellies on Friday before eking out a 10-9

win over the Nanaimo Timerbmen on Saturday. The Saints saw balanced scoring from its lineup against New West, but fell behind early in the game after allowing a short-handed goal in the first period. PoCo was able to briefly tie things up in the second but a flurry of Salmonbellies offense in the third —  including three goals from New West’s Nathan Stewart —  created a hole the Saints cold not climb out of. When the final buzzer

The club hung on to the lead for most of the game but again struggled in the third, allowing Nanaimo to score six goals. PoCo was able to avoid overtime and hang on for the win, taking the game 10-9.

The Coquitlam Reds swept a doubleheader against the Abbotsford Cardinals on Saturday, in two tightly played matches at Delair Park. There was not much in the way of offense in either game, with Coquitlam scoring only two runs in both games. B u t t h e t e a m wa s strong in the field, holding Abbotsford to just one run all afternoon. The Reds got on the board in the fourth inning of the first game, when Cameron Wi l l i a m s t o u c h e d home plate before T.J. McCullough added a run in the sixth to lead the game 2-0 going into the final inning. A run from A b b o t s f o rd ’ s L i a m Kano-McGregor in the seventh was not enough to tie the game, with the home team losing 2-1. In the second game the Reds got their offense out of the way e a r l y, s c o r i n g t wo runs in the opening inning from Austin MacDonald and Hayden Jaco. The 2-0 score would hold for the rest of the game, allowing the Reds to notch their 14th win of the season. Coquitlam is currently in fourth place, b e h i n d A b b o t s f o rd (11-7), the North Shore Twins (14-5) and the Langley Blaze (23-3). The Reds were expected to play the White Rock Tritons Tuesday night after The Tri-City News’ deadline. Coquitlam will take on the Nanaimo Mariners on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Mundy Park.

MERCER (nee HANCOCK), Mabel Irene

CHILDREN

Dec. 19, 19 16 — May 15, 2013

It is with great sadness that the family of Mabel Mercer announces her passing, at the age of 96. Born and raised in Nanaimo, Mabel is predeceased by her husband of 50 years, John, and siblings Rose Goldsby, Tom Hancock and Mary Weston. She is survived by her daughters Eileen (Ian) Mitchell and Barbara (Thomas) Cleugh; grandchildren Brad Mitchell and Allison Mitchell, Janis (Harry) Warren and Heather (Jeff) Cox; and great-grandchildren Alisa, Jenelle, Julianne and Fraser. Mabel was a life member of the Order of the Eastern Star (Crescent chapter #10) in Nanaimo and she enjoyed gardening and sharing her fruits, vegetables and flowers with everyone. Her garden was the pride of the neighbourhood. At 83, Mabel moved from Nanaimo to Coquitlam to be with her family. She was an example of strength and dignity, and always had a smile and twinkle in her eye. We are blessed to have had Mom/Nana in our lives for so long. The family wishes to thank the staff at the Belvedere Care Home in Coquitlam, where she resided for three years.

A different kind of duplex

Abstract Homes and Renovation’s Sandro Stefanucci has a new spin on a classic duplex.

By Kerry Vital A classic duplex is easily recognizable, with its two single-family homes sharing a common wall in the middle. Vancouver’s Abstract Homes and Renovation is shaking up your perception of a duplex with their unique back-to-front design. Instead of having the homes side-by-side, the second home is attached directly behind the first one and accessed by a path

of the Year. “This is such a proud moment for us as our goal and greatest reward is to always give our customers the best possible home buying experience,” says Portrait principal Robert Grimm. “Without the dedication and commitment of our team, and trade partners, this honour would not be possible,” says Portrait principal Harry Grimm. “We accept this on behalf of them and would sincerely like to thank them for their continued passion and customer-driven focus.” The other Grand Ovation Awards winners

The two rooms most likely to cement or reject the sale or purchase of a house are the kitchen and bathroom. They are also the most expensive to renovate. Unlike every other room in the house, there is so much going on in these rooms, including plumbing which is sometimes quite complicated, electrical, tiling and drains, just to mention a few. So when planning a renovation you have to get it right because mistakes can be costly. Buyers know they can renovate most rooms with flooring and paint but bathrooms take renovation to a whole new level of expense and your potential buyer is doing sums in their head to figure out how much tearing out and renovating is going to cost on top of the purchase price as they tour your house. There are many choices to make these days, which each come with consequences. Among the options are oversize steam showers, bathtubs carved out of a single piece of rock, marble floors and walls, double sinks; the list goes on. Not always taken into consideration when planning the renovation of an older home is weight. Homes built in years gone by may not be structurally sound

A home for aging in place “ from page.1 down the side of the property. Located on Commercial Drive, space was at a premium on the lot, giving rise to this creative floorplan that gives each home 2,000 square feet of living space. “It doesn’t look like a duplex,” says Sandro Stefanucci, president and founder of Abstract Homes. “The aesthetics make a big difference.” Stefanucci and his wife Cheri live in one half of the duplex, and rent out the other half. The original purpose of that second half is to give his parents a home that they can live in for the long term. Thus, Stefanucci has included an elevator shaft in order to allow them to access all four levels of the home. That space is currently being used as closet storage. Other accessible features include doors that are three feet wide, in order to allow wheelchairs to fit through them. Grab bars and a roll-in shower in the ensuite bathroom are able to be installed easily. Stefanucci himself was born on the street, and the lot where the duplex now stands belonged to his family. His grandfather purchased the property in 1956, and Stefanucci was

happy to be able to keep it in the family after his parents were forced to leave the neighbourhood as they aged. “The best use of the land was to build a new house,” he says, noting that the original house was not a heritage property. However, he ran into a few problems when demolishing and re-building. Among them was a long permit process and the challenges involved with removing a house that was so close to its neighbours. In the end the new duplex was worth all the trouble, and Stefanucci and his family are happy with the results. The duplex was the winner of the Georgie Award for Best Duplex in 2012, something that Stefanucci is very proud of. “It fits in with the other homes” on the street, he notes. “You can do your living on the first and second floor,” Stefanucci says, adding that the second floor is a master bedroom with ensuite. The laundry facilities are also on this floor. Stefanucci’s parents have not yet moved in, but he says the home will be there for them when they’re ready. In the mean time, he and Cheri are enjoying their home.

Sandro Stefanucci and his wife Cheri are proud of their back-to-front duplex, which looks like a regular single-family home from the front. Inside, both homes include alder cabinetry and other beautiful features.

Building a home that’s kind to the environment By Maggie Calloway The news is full of stories about how it is almost impossible for a young couple first starting out to afford to live in Vancouver, and using a conventional yardstick, the information is correct for most but there is a way to not only live in a beautiful house but to also contribute to the solution of affordable housing. No, it’s not winning the lottery but by being very smart in finding a way to build the house you want, where you want it, and how you can afford the whole project financially. One young couple found the property they wanted in the location they wanted to live in, but the 1940s house, on inspection, was not salvageable. There was a lot of rot and water damage and the decision was made to tear the house down and start from scratch. In stepped Samuel and Elizabeth FitzZaland of Green City Builders Inc., who are not only a very talented team of renovators but are passionate about introducing as many real green, not greenwashed, products into their builds. A plan was put together to build the main house with a garden suite on the lower level plus a laneway house, all very carefully designed to fit the lot perfectly. The couple was able to afford the house because of the rental income stream generated from both the suite and the laneway house. At the same time, because of providing rental accommodation, they neatly fit into the municipality’s plan of innovative housing. By building three homes on one lot they took the pressure off development elsewhere. “The clients, once the decision was

taken to tear down the existing house, decided to redevelop the property. They wanted a beautiful, gracious home for themselves and an important point was the rental potential to supplement their income and support the mortgage,” says Elizabeth FitzZaland. “This was also an opportunity to integrate some green building practices throughout the build. This was interesting for us for there were some environmentally friendly elements that were not construction-related as much as planning-related. The property is really tight, only 33 feet wide by 108 feet deep and because a laneway house size depends on the depth and width of the lot, they were right up against both of those measurements but we were able to design to those limitations.” The outcome of this build is a very small, 450-square-foot laneway house over two levels, the onebedroom secondary suite in the lower part of the house, built above-grade as much as possible, which makes it quite bright, and the homeowners’ part of the house, which is on two levels, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. To further make this financially affordable in the short term the homeowners are considering inviting a

Some of the features of this eco-friendly home include a basement suite, laneway home, stainless--steel appliances and a luxurious bathroom that is made for relaxation.

Plenty of options for building a greener home “ from page.5 home-share student to share their home until they start a family themselves, and then plan to make this home a family home. Because the residence is close to Langara College, this is a viable option for them. “Out in the market people still want quartz countertops, new cabinets and floors and a gracious master bath with separate showers, which are really luxury items but they found a way to do all this with a very humble starting budget, but with the income streams it all become very affordable,” FitzZaland says. Included in this home are as many “green” builds as their budget allowed. A framing technique was used which uses larger lumber spaced further apart so more insulation is possible plus it reduces thermal bridging so you get a tight interior space. To get fresh air into the house they installed a heat recovery ventilator which recovers 90 per cent of the heat that would normally be lost by pumping

air out as the fresh air comes in. Once the house was wrapped, and before the drywall was installed, they had an energy audit done so they could identify any leaks and sealed them at that stage. In addition they installed a combination instant hot water system which also heats their home through a radiant heating system. From beginning to end this whole project was extremely well-thought-out from utilizing the site for maximum return and investing in an eco-friendly build which will pay dividends going forward. Several green techniques were used in building the house, including larger lumber spaced further apart to allow for more insulation and a heat recovery ventilator that recovers 90 per cent of the heat that would normally be pumped out as fresh air comes in. The home still fits in well with the surrounding neighbourhood.

Finding some oldfashioned flair with stone

Tri-City News Wednesday, May 22, 2013, B7

By Maggie Calloway Building with stone has to be one of the oldest, if not the oldest, method of creating shelter. Anyone who has watched documentaries on Knowledge Network has seen proof of stone shelters built as much as six thousand years ago and more. In fact if it wasn’t for stone a lot of our early history would be lost in the mists of time. The same basic fact exists today; stone lasts where other materials such as wood have a limited lifespan. In Europe building with stone is the norm and stonemasons in Continental Europe have traditionally learned from fathers, uncles and pretty well everyone in the village from a very early age. If you married and left home everyone in the village gathered together to build the newly married couple a home and these homes are passed down through many generations.

Wallpaper becoming a popular accessory in home decor By Kerry Vital Everyone has a nightmare story about wallpaper, whether it’s trying to remove it from your home or growing up surrounded by crazy prints in every room. But recently, wallpaper has seen a resurgence, helped along by options that suit every taste, style and budget. Wallpaper has been around since the early 15th century, when it started life as a cheaper alternative to panelling and tapestries that were quite expensive. Over the years, several different trends came and went, from Chinese-style art based on silk wall coverings to flocked French designs to the panoramic scenes that are still seen in museums around Europe. And now, the tide is turning again. “The role of wallpaper within decor has really changed,” says Sandra Bracken, vicepresident of marketing for Bouclair. “It is no longer about wallpapering a room – it is mostly for an accent wall.” Long gone are the days of large multicoloured floral prints and faux brick. Now, Bracken says that wallpaper has become a lot more contemporary. “Customers are loving the patterns that are modern, geometric and add a touch of colour,” she says. “The prints are new and modern. They accent a room, they don’t overpower (it).” Sarah Gallop, principal designer at Sarah Gallop Design Inc., says that wallpaper can be a great option for those who are on a budget but are looking for something new and exciting. “People have a bad association with it,” she says. “But it gives such a glamour that paint doesn’t have ... Some of the new wallpapers are gorgeous” and can be easily removed if you decide you want a different look.

Years in For All Your 29Tri-C ities Reno Needs...

Wallpaper is no longer limited to large fusty florals and faux finishes. Now, you can find wallpaper that will accent any room in a variety of styles and budgets. Submitted photos

North Vancouver interior designer Sheryn Calvert of Calvert Design Studio agrees, noting that wallpaper can also be used as a decor item. “Do you have a plain white bookshelf? Add some wallpaper for colour and texture!” she says. “People really care about decorating their home and wallpaper has become the new accessory,” says Bracken. “You can create a room that’s unique, interesting and updates a room instantly.”

Spicing it up in a spice or wok kitchen By Kerry Vital We’ve all had a bad day in the kitchen, where nothing turns out right, things are burning and the scent of the food lingers for hours afterwards. With the recent trend in installing a spice or wok kitchen, those smells can be a thing of the past. Instead, you can lock them away behind a door and entertain in style without your guests ever finding out how much work went into the meal. “It’s usually the spice or wok kitchen where you do all the dirty work,” says Jasmine Jeon of Coast Appliances. “It’s only purpose is to cook food.” Inside, you’ll usually find a gas range and a hood fan, Jeon says. “Sometimes you’ll find a dishwasher, and occasionally ... a fridge. These kitchens aren’t built for the look.” Instead, most homeowners will have a “show” kitchen in the home as well. That is where you will find the high-end appliances, wall ovens and other gourmet accessories. “That kitchen will have the custom hood fan, the hidden fridge and everything else,” Jeon says. “It’s all for show. Quality and design are important.” When installing a spice or wok kitchen (the words are usually used interchangeably by builders and which one is used will depend on the homeowner), it’s important to keep a budget in mind. Because the appliances are meant to be utilitarian and are only seen by the person cooking, the look isn’t as important. “They are usually mid-range appliances” Jeon says. “KitchenAid and Frigidaire are popular. For those who really care, Wolf and Thermador” are often requested. Most wok or spice kitchens are long and narrow, Jeon says, though the size

Tri-City News Wednesday, May 22, 2013, B9

can vary depending on the house and how much space the homeowner wants to devote to it. It is vital to have a fan in your wok or spice kitchen, as it will suck up the smells and prevent them from escaping into the rest of the house. Jeon notes that it’s rare to see anything other than a gas range in that kind of space, because most cuisines cooked in a spice or wok kitchen involve high heat. “An induction range is more expensive but similar to gas,” she says. “You won’t see an electric range in there.” There’s plenty to think about when you’re looking at installing a wok or spice kitchen, but its sheer usefulness makes it well worth it in the end. Cooking doesn’t need to be stressful, and having a dedicated space to leave all the dirty work behind is something that many homeowners will find important.

Spice or wok kitchens will often hold just a gas range and a hood fan, whereas you will find the high-end amenities such as wall ovens, top left, and custom hood fans, top, in the “show” kitchen. Martin Knowles photos

Savoring the good life with a bottle of wine When it comes to wine storage, you have many options to suit a range of budgets. From full cellars to a simple wine fridge, life can be delicious with a good bottle of wine. By Kerry Vital Kicking back with a glass of wine at the end of a long week or tasting a new bottle with friends and family at a dinner party is one of life’s pleasures. Maybe you’re happy with having a bottle of white in the fridge and a bottle of red on the counter, but there is a lot more to think about when you’re considering how to store a collection. From where to put it to what kind of storage you want, it’s best to consult a professional when it comes to wine storage. “The paramount thing to think about is the quantity of wine and then build it from there,” says Gary Bombay of Blue Grouse Cellars. “A small collection of 50 bottles or less is more suited to a wine fridge, whereas a serious collector who has the space would look to a cellar.” Wine fridges are also better suited to the homeowner looking to have white wine ready to drink at any point, as it should be consumed at about 6 to 8 degrees Celsius, whereas red wine should be room temperature (about 17 to 18 degrees Celsius). “That’s room temperature in a European stone building,” Bombay says. Typically, wine cellars are located underground or in the basement, but Bombay says he’s recently seen a trend towards homeowners looking to build a wine cellar above ground that can also be used as a showpiece. “They’re looking for a decorative cellar that they’re proud to show off,” he says. “Some are also including a tasting room outside.”

Lots of great design ideas available “ from page.1 enough to handle the weight of your wish list so factor in the cost of what may be considerable structural work before you can begin putting together your new dream bathroom. John Friswell of CCI Renovations is an award-winning contractor who has many years of renovations under his belt and there is very little he hasn’t had to deal with when it comes to renovations. He cites a recent renovation as a great example of what homeowners need to know. “My clients have lived in this home for a number of years so they knew exactly what they wanted, in fact the instructions to my company and the designer were to create a spa bathroom you would find in a high-end elegant hotel, and that is exactly what we did,” Friswell says. “It helped that we used the original bathroom footprint, 13’ x 13’; about 160 square feet, and in this case we didn’t need to do any structural work, which is not always the case. We had to be creative with the linear drain in the shower but everything else was fine.” The original bathroom, although badly dated, had good ‘bones’ which is a great help when renovating. The size was right for the new design which again is a bonus; removing walls to increase the size puts the renovation into a whole new category. The bathroom isn’t huge, but instead just the right size to make the placement of each unit work. The rim-less steam shower is large but not enormous and tucked in the corner so there is some privacy, and the two vanities, his and hers, are placed so that each person literally has their own space including storage. The female spot, the larger of the two, has a mirror that slides up to reveal storage, plugs for hair dryers, etc. This allows the positioning of the lighting to make sense, and not having to install electrical outlets in the wall of marble is a brilliant touch. “The drawers and cupboards all have precisely designed organizers. The walls are marble as are the floors. The wall towel rack is heated which is a treat and the towel bars underneath the vanities avoids towels on the counter,” Friswell says. “We built in the tall linen tower for towels, etc. rather than storage under the vanities which is a more elegant approach as Family Owned & Operated well as practical. We installed a window in the Since 1950 shower to provide light which we used to see years ago. Unlike then where there were always problems with rot and mildew, we didn’t use wood but marble so there will be no ongoing problems. The window was also important to Seed Blends for the Lower Mainland • Proven help bounce light around the room.” • Homeowners • Contractors • Landscapers There are lots of great design ideas in this bathroom and the desire of the clients for an • Sand-based Turf • Drought Tolerant elegant bathroom has certainly been achieved.

The old bathroom featured dated lighting, an old soaker tub and an old-fashioned vanity, left and below left. Now, the bathroom includes his-and-hers vanities and a gorgeous new tub made for relaxation, above and below. John Friswell of CCI Renovations says the homeowners were looking for a spa-like feel in their new space. Submitted photos
