On Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the group will host its 22nd annual juried rose show and sale at the pavilion (624 Poirier St., Coquitlam) that will feature more than 300 entries from around the Lower Mainland. Besides the outdoor rose garden it maintains year-round, the 65-member society also opened last month a new Canadian rose garden (facing the lawn bowling green), with 130 varieties hybridized by Canadian scientists. Admission to this weekend’s show and sale is $3; no charge for children with adults.
Traffic pattern changes are expected this summer as the TriCities area braces for road work season. For more information see page A3.
New Terry Fox exhibit to open Ottawa museum will display items By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Prized possessions tucked away for 33 years by the family of Port Coquitlam hometown hero Terry Fox will be part of a new exhibit at Canada’s largest museum of history. Yesterday, during a media conference at
Library and Archives Canada in Burnaby — and during the firstever Canada History Week — 16 objects that formed part of Fox’s epic Marathon of Hope were unveiled for the first time. Among them: • a glass jar of water dipped in the Atlantic Ocean in St. John’s, N.L., to mark the start of Fox’s cross-country journey on April 12, 1980; • his Companion of the Order of Canada medal;
• children’s letters and cards that wish him well; • two shirts he wore on the odyssey: one reading “Terry Fox Marathon of Hope D’Espoir,” the other “Marathon of Hope”; • and a Team Canada jersey presented to Fox in Ontario in July 1980 by Hockey Hall of Famer Bobby Orr. The items — along with thousands of others — will be on display in April 2015 at the future Canadian Museum
of History, near Ottawa (formerly known as the Canadian Museum of Civilization) to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the Marathon of Hope. As well, some of the artifacts will be part of a travelling exhibition as “it represents and belongs to Canadians coast to coast,” said Darrell Fox, Terry’s youngest brother who also ran on the Marathon of Hope. see EXHIBIT, page A4

expect delays this weekend The construction of additional highway lanes means motorists should expect delays when approaching the Cape Horn Interchange in Coquitlam July 6 to 7. Starting at 8:30 p.m. on July 6, and depending on the weather, Highway 1 will be reduced to one lane in each direction at the Cape Horn Interchange until 9:30 a.m. on July 7. During this time, eastbound traffic will be diverted onto westbound lanes — and both directions will be separated by traffic barrels. The speed limit in the area will be reduced to 40 km/h. Motorists are being advised to obey the speed limit, watch for workers, expect delays and plan alternate routes. Visit the Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project’s website (www.pmh1project.com), twitter address (@PortMannHwy1) and onsite electronic message boards for updates.
Construction on the Evergreen Line — due to be up and running by the summer of 2016 — has begun. For traffic information and bulletins, call the hotline at 604-927-2080 or visit evergreenline.gov. bc.ca. • North and Clarke roads (Burnaby/Coquitlam) WHAT: Construction of guideway columns and some utility relocation work.

Moody Street overpass sidewalk to be widened By Sarah Payne The Tri-CiTy NewS
Drivers heading along Port Moody streets will want to look out for a few major roadwork projects planned over the summer months, as well as a handful of smaller disruptions. Major projects include reconstruction of Noons Creek Drive, from Ungless Way to David Avenue (already completed) and on David from Forest Parkway to Heritage Mountain Boulevard, while the Moody Street overpass will get a wider sidewalk starting in September, though driving restrictions are likely to come during off-peak or nighttime hours.
See PoCo’s road construction schedule: page A8 Following is a detailed list of PoMo projects planned for the summer, as well as estimated costs: • Moody Street overpass — sidewalk widening WHEN: September WHAT: Reconstruction of the overpass sidewalk will widen it to 3.44 metres, allowing for two-way cycling and pedestrian travel WATCH OUT: Work is
scheduled to start after the park’s busy summer season, but the draft transportation plan anticipates the possibility of alternating daytime lane closures for about two weeks. (Off-peak or nighttime work is at the contractor’s discretion, depending on the noise, and is yet to be determined.) The sidewalk will remain available for pedestrian use throughout the project. COST: $750,000 (largely offset with a $652,625 grant) • Noons Creek Drive — Campion Place and Noons Creek Close WHEN: Tentatively scheduled for two weeks in August WHAT: Curb extension at Campion and traffic calming
at Noons Creek Close WATCH OUT: Only minor delays are expected COST: $75,000 • Guildford Way widening at Ioco Road WHEN: Starting in August and running for about five weeks WHAT: Eastbound left turn lane (east side of the intersection) will be realigned to improve the turning lane WATCH OUT: Single-lane closures, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. for westbound traffic and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. for eastbound drivers, are likely for the duration of the project, with the possibility of intermittent closures and associated detours for several hours. COST: $225,000
• Clarke Road sidewalk extension WHEN: Approximately four weeks WHAT: A new sidewalk will be installed on Clarke, near Cecile Place WATCH OUT: Staff are considering work hours from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. to minimize impacts on Clarke Road traffic COST: $157,000 • Ioco Road at Barber Street and Campbell Road WHEN: Approximately three weeks in August WHAT: Crosswalk improvements WATCH OUT: No traffic impacts expected see SeweR, page A8

Exhibit will display letters, medals and Marathon shirts continued from front page
Included in the national exhibit will be a letter from Pauline Probyn, who was 12 when she penned a poem to Fox as part of a school project at Buckingham elementary in Burnaby. On Thursday, Probyn told reporters she couldn’t remember writing the letter but was honoured her words will be part of the display. “What his Marathon of Hope did was inspire people to pursue their dreams,” said Probyn, now a New Westminster realtor. Darrell Fox gave special thanks to Canadian Heritage Minister James Moore — the MP for Port Moody-WestwoodPort Coquitlam — for helping to preserve the artifacts. Fox’s father, Rolly, said more than 150,000 items were forwarded to their home address in PoCo during the Marathon of Hope — much of which was safeguarded by the city and later transferred to the BC Sports Hall of Fame. In March 2011, three months before Fox’s mother, Betty, died, Rolly said she was ready to “let go” of her son’s keepsakes and have them professionally archived. Moore said the travelling exhibit will not only raise money for cancer research but will also collect cash to build a permanent Terry Fox Museum. Since the Terry Fox Foundation started, it has raised more than $600 million to fight cancer, a disease that claimed the one-legged runner at the age of 22.

Cops seek motorist Coquitlam RCMP want to speak with the driver of a white car that was heading south on North Road on June 18, when a multiple-vehicle collision involving a dump truck sent several people to hospital and shut down the road for several hours. Investigators don’t think the car — described as a four-door import with shiny wheels — made contact with any of the vehicles in the crash, but the driver may have been at such an angle that he or she could say what happened prior to the collision. If you are the driver or know the driver’s identity, call police at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2013-17058.

Mayors talk shop at BBQ Attracting and retaining business, a possible byelection in Coquitlam and the need to buy local were top of mind at this year’s mayors’ barbecue hosted by the Tri-Cities’ Chamber of Commerce. Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart, Port Coquitlam’s Greg Moore — who also chairs the Metro Vancouver board of directors — and Mike Clay of Port Moody took an hour’s worth of questions from the audience in Port Moody following a meal served up by Mr. Mike’s of Coquitlam. Emceed by social media expert Dave Teixeira, Chamber members led the charge by quizzing the mayors on topics such as economic development, investing in local businesses and government transparency. The hot-button issue stirred last month about politicians staying in a Vancouver hotel during a federal convention was broached by Dennis Marsden, a past Chamber president. Marsden also voiced concern about access to civic budget information. Moore countered his municipality tries to get the word out each year prior to financial plans being decided; however, “we only get three people out to the public meetings,”he said. As for expenses footed by taxpayers, Moore suggested the Tri-City councils disclose their bills more regularly and in a detailed form that is accessible online. Currently, r e m u n e rat i o n s a n d charges are released annually. Further on the “hotelgate” hullabaloo, Clay was dismissive, saying conventions represent a small percentage of the civic budget while Stewart argued he and five Coquitlam councillors spent “18 hours a day” during the last Federation of Canadian Municipalities gathering to lobby for $22 million worth of federal cash for local projects. Later, Stewart said he’d like to see his city save money by not holding a byelection to replace councillors Linda Reimer and Selina Robinson, who were elected in May as MLAs. The high cost combined with the typically low turnout for byelections were among his reasons (city council is expected to decide on the matter on Monday). As well, Stewart said he’d like to see the provincial legislation changed to permit municipalities faced with council vacancies to promote the first-

place contender who lost in the campaign. On the other hand, Clay argued elected officials who run for senior government should be required to quit their municipal seat, thereby not allowing a “fall-back”job. Asked why businesses would relocate to their cities, the three mayors were each given 15 seconds to respond. Clay — who wore a city of Port Coquitlam shirt in jest — cited the upcoming Evergreen Line, recreation services, affordable land and lower commercial tax rates while Stewart pointed to Coquitlam’s QNet fibre optic network, affordable housing and helpful city staff. “It’s a great municipality to live in and has a great mayor,”he joked. “And it’s right beside Port Coquitlam,” Moore quipped. The mayors also responded to questions about the future sale of the Ioco lands, cycling paths to link the three cities and emergency response to natural disasters as seen in southern Alberta last week.

Long-line rescue on Eagle Mtn. Coquitlam SAR calls on North Shore for help in rescue operation By Sarah Payne The TRi-CiTy NewS
The latest mission for Coquitlam Search and Rescue ended in the fourth call this season to their North Shore counterparts for a long-line helicopter rescue. “It’s getting a little d e m o ra l i z i n g ,” s a i d Coquitlam SAR manager Michael Coyle. “ We w e r e h o p i n g we’d have that tool all
ready to go.” The latest search for a 43-year-old man and his dog who went missing on Eagle Ridge on Canada Day, and were stranded on the mountain overnight, ended when he was spotted from the air at about 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Rescuers dropped water to him but because none of the ground teams were close to the hiker, North Shore Search and Rescue was called in for a Helicopter Long Line Rescue (HETS). Both the uninjured hiker and his dog were back at the command post by 6 p.m.
There are 13 Coquitlam SAR members trained in long line rescue procedures, but the team is still waiting for the necessary equipment to be able to perform the rescues themselves. They’re waiting on Transport Canada to certify new equipment, a process that has now been in the works for about eight months. Coyle said the number of times they’ve called on the North Shore SAR team this year is consistent with the predictions they made when applying for the grant money needed to build the
team’s expertise. “This is the best way to get someone out of there,” Coyle said, adding it could have taken a ground team several more hours to reach the missing hiker on Tuesday. A Transport Canada spokesperson said the equipment required for long line rescues has evolved over the years, with changes to the materials, specifications and suppliers, all of which need to be approved by the federal agency before it can be used in a rescue. The delays, she added, are because “the company needs to doc-

ument the changes that have evolved over time and submit supporting data for Transport Canada’s approval.” They are currently waiting for that data from the only company in Canada that is certified to sell it and, in the meantime, “Transport Canada is extending interim approvals for search and rescue societies.” Teams with existing gear have been able to re-certify it but because Coquitlam SAR needed to purchase new equipment, they have to wait for the Transport Canada approvals.

Be Fire Smart This Summer One small spark can ignite a forest or destroy a park. As we face another hot, dry summer, Fire/Rescue teams remind all park users that outdoor burning and campfires are not permitted and it is important to watch for bans on smoking or using barbeques.
Tips to reduce risk of fire damage 9 Prune shrubs and trees, and remove deadfall or woodpiles near your home. 9 Keep your grass mowed. 9 Ensure that your roof, gutters and eaves are free of combustible debris and prune back overhanging branches. 9 Make sure chimneys meet current building codes and have spark arrestors. 9 Contact BC Hydro if vegetation is near or touching power lines.
To prepare for an Emergency 9 Be involved and participate in emergency preparedness activities at home, school or work. 9 Practice your family plan with every member in your household, including out of area contact. 9 Plan and know alternate routes of egress from your home and neighbourhood. 9 Ensure your address is clearly visible for quick identification by emergency sevices. 9 Take free emergency preparedness courses available through H.E.R.O.S. For more information about emergency preparedness and HEROS seminars, call H.E.R.O.S. at 604-945-1578 or fax 604-552-7304. 9 Volunteer your services, knowledge and expertise in your community. Be smart this summer. Don’t let one careless moment destroy what nature has taken centuries to create.

Pattullo Bridge will close for three weekends this summer TransLink plans repaving, repairs for aging Patullo bridge deck By Jeff Nagel BLack Press
The Pattullo Bridge will be closed to all traffic for three weekends this summer while TransLink carries out repairs. The closures are set for the weekends of July 20-21, Aug. 10-11 and Aug. 24-25 and run from 9 p.m. on the Friday night until 3 a.m. Monday. The bridge will also be off limits to pedestrians and bikes. Crews will repair sections of the concrete deck and repave parts of the 76-year-old bridge.
TransLink will also review the condition of the driving surface and make improvements as necessary. Any heavy rain on the three weekends would extend the work to a fourth weekend on Sept. 7-8,TransLink said. It’s the first significant full closure of the Pattullo since a fire on the wooden trestle beneath the south approach forced it to shut down for nine days in 2009. About 58,000 vehicles use the Pattullo each day on weekends, compared to 73,000 on weekdays. Those numbers are up about 4% since tolls went on the Port Mann Bridge and the Pattullo became the nearest free crossing of the Fraser River. The current work does not include a planned
$150-million seismic upgrade for the Pattullo that TransLink intends to carry out regardless
Commuters from across the region will likely feel the traffic impacts when the Patullo Bridge shuts down for three weekends this summer.

Victoria bomb plot
PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside
QWHAT WE THINK:
hile most Canadians were celebrating our nationâ€™s birthday with a few brews and a barbecue, enjoying the summer sun with family and friends, two Surrey residents had something more deadly in mind. Information so far on John Nuttall and Amanda Korody, the Surrey couple that planted explosive devices at the Victoria Legislature to go off during Canada Day celebrations, indicates they were recent converts to Islam and were â€œself-radicalizedâ€? terrorists. They arenâ€™t believed to be local cells of a broader terrorist network â€” a relief considering the bombs the couple had crafted were similar to those set off during the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring many more. Could similar damage have been done here in B.C.â€™s capital? Letâ€™s hope not. But the incident serves as a reminder that, while we probably donâ€™t need to live in fear of the kind of terrorist attacks seen in other parts of the world, there are people out there bent on destroying the peaceful way of life we often take for granted.

Would that be childish? When saying sorry goes south AS I SEE IT Lance Peverley
ave you noticed how a defiant child apologizes? Watch. Listen. It can be almost amusing, as the reluctant offender twists body language and words when prodded to say â€œIâ€™m sorry.â€? Adults, with years of experience, are more skilled at contrition; the physical and verbal reaches undetectable, the offended party placated. That is why it can be so compelling when an apology goes south. Last week, foodies and fans watched as one of their own, Paula Deen, defended herself against accusations of allowing shockingly unsavoury conditions for employees at her familyâ€™s restaurant in Savannah, Ga.Â Testifying in court, the TV chef was asked if sheâ€™d ever used a particular racial epithet â€” a heinous word once widespread well beyond her neck of the woods, but viewed today as
inexcusable for all but hipster filmmakers and hip-hoppers whoâ€™ve misguidedly reclaimed it as their own. Deen, 66, testified she had indeed used the racist word, citing a specific example 30 years ago when she was robbed at gunpoint by a black man. Itâ€™s likely she assumed this would gain sympathy as a crime victim. For many, it was viewed as selective memory, cited to avoid perjuring herself. Her tearful explanations since have added division to an already-segregated country, with retailers dropping the Deen name, her online sales skyrocketing, and detractors and defenders â€” both â€” using colourful language of their own. Other apologies closer to home in recent weeks might not have been as ridiculously insensitive, but theyâ€™ve been no less galling. In a debate prior to B.C.â€™s May 14 election, the NDPâ€™s man-who-woulda-coulda-been-premier reemphasized he embraced ownership of a past shame, in which he, as a previous premierâ€™s chief of staff, inexcusably back-dated a memo to protect his then-leader from conflictof-interest charges.Â

If only Adrian Dixâ€™s regret stopped there.Â Instead, he noted, he was a mere 35 at the time. Thirty-five? Are 35-year-olds under-developed, or just untrustworthy? And does this mean we can take Dix at his word now, at the tender age of 49?Â Not to be outdone, Premier Christy Clark stopped lampooning Dixâ€™s age-inappropriate explanation just long enough to defend her own chief of staff, who took the fall over a leaked BC Liberal plan to spend our money to woo the ethnic vote. Kim Haakstad wasâ€œabout 35â€?when she erred, explained away our premier. Again with that number. Is 35 the new 14?Â Surely 35 isnâ€™t too young to take on some responsibility. Napoleon was proclaimed emperor at that age. The Queen had reigned 10 years; the Dalai Lama, 20. Should North Koreaâ€™s Kim Jong Un be granted wriggle room, as heâ€™s a still-formative 29.5? Of course, this wasnâ€™t the premierâ€™s only apology. In the days since Clark won the Legislature but lost her seat â€” before her MLAs were even sworn in â€” she quietly gave
raises to political staff. Then recantedâ€Ś a bitâ€Ś after this was made public. â€œAlthough the original change would have meant we were underspending the budget by $100,000, Iâ€™ve heard loud and clear that people didnâ€™t like it,â€?the premier tutted. Yes. Because coming in under budget is the goal â€” not spending wisely. Naturally, the premier allowed her new deputy chief of staff â€” by coincidence, her partyâ€™s deputy campaign manager â€” to keep the higher $195,148 salary, because operations and policy roles were formerly done by two people. Sure. Just like the real world. Where corporate downsizing means massive raises for those left behind to pick up the slack. Considering all these youthful indiscretions, obstinate justifications and regretful pleas for clemency that you and I have had to endure from public figures in recent times â€” from sorrowful politicians, to desperate CEOs, to devilmade-me-do-it evangelists â€” perhaps we can be forgiven for thumbing our noses. Or would that be childish?

Not everypaid internships are necessary and body’s going to like it, but that’s the can be fruitful. reality. That’s real life.
Interns should be paid for work
rivate companies get to hire a bunch of unpaid workers for an indeterminate length of time.They need offer no guarantee of future employment or any avenue of complaint. And we trust that companies won’t take advantage of such relationships? What could possibly go wrong? It’s laughable. Unpaid internships are the best scam for companies since the BC Liberals invented the $6 per hour training wage to allow McDonald’s and Burger King to save millions in wages on the backs of teenagers trying to earn enough for a new bike. But sadly, in many jurisdictions, unpaid internships are becoming a pre-requisite for even entry-level jobs. After getting the education and training for the job, one has to scramble to find a company to work for indefinitely for nothing, on the off chance that a job might be forthcoming if one pleases without complaining for sufficient months or years. Journalism, fashion, politics and technology are industries that extensively “employ” unpaid interns. The cachet of these industries have eager aspirants fighting for the chance to work for nothing, drooling at the prospect of walking the same hallways as their heroes in these industries.
“Sometimes the only way to get a job in a particular field is to have experience and sometimes the only way to garner experience is to work for free for a short period.”
“Unpaid internships are the best scam for companies since the BC Liberals invented the $6 per hour training wage.” Jim Nelson What’s your take on this week’s Face to Face topic and what they have to say? Email your thoughts to email@example.com.
And incredibly, some are actually paying for the opportunity to be unpaid.The latest Charity Buzz bid for an unpaid internship opportunity at the United Nations is $26,000.They’re paying thousands for the opportunity to earn nothing — incredible. It’s not enough that we break unions and cut wages at every possible opportunity. Now, we’re hiring unpaid workers to either fetch coffee and do menial things no one else wants to do or even worse, to do meaningful things normally done by paid employees. Either way, someone loses. To support the idea of unpaid internships one must trust businesses to not take advantage of employees to whom they owe nothing. My colleague does — I can’t. And luckily for B.C.’s young people, the forward-looking B.C. Employment Standards Act of 1996 agrees with me and saves them from egregious unpaid internships when it states“time spent by an employee performing labour or service for an employer is time worked and time for which wages are payable.” Perhaps, the experience of Monica Lewinsky in U.S. President Bill Clinton’s office is the most vivid example of the position in which unpaid interns could easily find themselves.

Kudos for a great Canada Day The Editor, I went with my family (I have three kids) to watch the Canada Day fireworks show at Castle Park in Port Coquitlam and I have to say: the show was amazing. But what really amazed, and actually touched me was not only the well organized and secured procedures to make it a fun and safe event, but also the devotion I could feel and witness during the fireworks display. I had the chance to sit with my family in the very front line (right in front of the yellow border where no one from the public is allowed to cross) and I saw the crew in action. I spent most of the s h ow wat c h i n g t h e firefighters working. Some of them were on their knees turning and moving quickly to other spots, then coming back all while their leader moved around, giving them direction. I felt all that effort is just to keep us, the public, safe and entertained. It made u s e n j oy t h e g r e at show and I was really touched by these men. I don’t know them. I don’t know their names but I want to tell them thank you. Also i would like to thank the police officers, who made sure that everything is organized and safe to drive back home with all that heavy traffic in the little area. It is easy to be proud of being Canadian and living in this great city of Port Coquitlam. Lamis Ismail Port Coquitlam
Holiday revellers from across the TriCities turned up at events at Coquitlam’s Lafarge Lake, Port Coquitlam’s Castle Park and Port Moody’s Rocky Point Park to celebrate Canada Day this past long weekend.

By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News
Representatives for a car dealership say they have outgrown their Coquitlam site and want to set up shop on United Boulevard. Blair Chisholm of Brook Pooni Associates told the city’s council-incommittee meeting on June 17 that Kia West needs a bigger space than its current 1.8-acre lot at 688 Lougheed
tomobile sales aren’t permitted in the Pacific Reach Business Park, which is primarily industrial; however, car sales were allowed in the zone five years ago when the land was purchased. Chisholm said the company is asking council to make an exception as Kia West — the largest dealership of Kia vehicles in B.C. — needs room to accommodate up to 150
staff in the future. The property now has a 30,000 sq. ft. building that Chisholm said could be converted into a showroom with reception, service shop, parts and storage space and administrative offices. As well, if approved by council, the site would also be close to Kia’s western Canada headquarters on Hartley Avenue. Coun. Brent Asmundson said coun-
cil and city staff need to consider the longterm impacts of having a car dealership in an industrial area, especially where traffic is concerned. And Mayor Richard Stewart said a new bicycle path may run through the BC Hydro right-of-way close to the property. City staff have yet to make a formal recommendation to council on Kia West’s bid.

TRI-CITY SPOTLIGHT: Greening Glen elementary, businesses helping hospitals
$10k TImeS 2 The president of Mott Electric last month generated $10,000 to the foundation that supports Royal Columbian Hospital, which serves the Tri-Cities. Daniel Mott presented the cash to foundation CEO Adrienne Bakker; Mott was a gold sponsor of the foundation’s annual Shine gala that raised $280,000 to help patients in need. Bakker also recently accepted a $10,000 donation from Tom Lively (left), president and CEO of Fraser River Pile & Dredge.
Abbey Allen (right), a student of Coquitlam’s Glen elementary, got her hands dirty in May while planting strawberries in her school’s new entrance garden — a project funded in part by Toyota Evergreen Learning Grounds. Glen received $1,450 for its greening program to install trees and native plants. ABOVE: At the cheque presentation were: (back row) principal Derek Passaglia, PAC chair Jessica Ng, parent Leah MacDonald, Open Road Toyota’s Patrick Lau, Evergreen consultant Dolores Altin and vice principal Tony Romano; and (front row), Charlotte Bauslaugh, Josee Ng, Gabrielle Ng, Talib Ahmad, Amira Ahmad and Jocelyn Ng.
Members with WorkSafeBC’s Helping Hands committee last month handed over $40,000 to Port Moody’s Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation for a new Helping Kids Hear program. Last month, the foundation also accepted $14,560 from the Dewdney chapter of the IODE to purchase two electric Arjo walkers — a month after the same chapter had contributed $16,500 for a vein finder.

Two Grade 12 students who have lived in Maillardville their entire lives won $500 bursaries last month from the neighbourhood residents’ association. Julie Touch, a Centennial secondary student who will study criminology at Douglas College, and Archbishop Carney secondary student Theresa Morgan, a future SFU cognitive science undergrad, won the cash.
Three Tri-City-based companies will have representatives on the new board of directors for the BC Trucking Association, which is marking its 100th anniversary this year. Grant Hankins of Coquitlam’s Progressive Waste Solutions,
and Kevin Clark of Valley West Transport and Rick McArthur of Macal Bulk Transport — both located in Port Coquitlam — were elected at the AGM on June 8.
Realtors with Port Coquitlam’s RE/MAX Sabre Realty took part in the company’s 28th annual charity golf tournament last month at the Pitt Meadows Golf Club, which swung in more than $22,000 to charities such as the Children’s Miracle Network, BC Children’s Hospital, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, Make A Wish Foundation, Crossroads Hospice Society and the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation.
Brian Hubbard, president of
Port Coquitlam Heritage, last month received $3,537 from Brad and Randy Doncaster and Jennifer Caldwell of the Select Liquor Store on Kingsway Avenue. The cash was collected through the sale of the PoCo Heritage Centennial Wine at the liquor store owned by the Cat and Fiddle Pub.

books plus: Spend more time reading this summer
Puppets, stories and songs will entertain kids at PoMo library Books Plus runs in The Tri-City News each Friday to highlight programs and happenings in the Tri-Cities’ three libraries: Coquitlam Public Library, Port Moody Public Library and Terry Fox Library in Port Coquitlam.
• Out of this world puppets and stories: Blast off on Thursday, July 11 with the Summer Reading Club as kids participate in stories, songs and puppetry. Performer Elspeth Bowers will keep the audience laughing and feeling like they are walking on air. This event is for kids five years of age or older so drop in for a fun time at the Inlet Theatre at around 1:30 p.m. • Keep your language alive: Help your child stay in touch with their roots with our Links to Language Multilingual Kits. Each kit contains 10 preschool level books, a CD and a DVD in one of five languages:
Chinese, Korean, Farsi, Spanish and French. A bilingual resource manual provides tips on building early literacy skills. For more information, visit library.portmoody. ca or call 604-469-4577. Port Moody Public Library is located at 100 Newport Dr., in the city hall complex.
• Janin the Jenius: Join Janine the Jenius in the science works lab at the Terry Fox Library and explore what makes things go up, up and away. Junior geniuses will witness the power of gases, like the power that makes rockets blast off. Watch out overhead for the amazing astrocork and acrobatic rocket balloons, count down for the rocket cannon race and cool off with an exploding space gas bubble on your head. Be on time for this uplifting science show. The event takes place on Tuesday, July 16, between 2 and 2:45 p.m. Registration is
appreciated. For more information, visit www.fvrl. bc.ca or the Fraser Valley Regional Library Facebook page. Terry Fox Library is located at 2470 Mary Hill Rd. in PoCo. Phone 604-9277999.
• Summer food bank drive: Coquitlam Public Library is collecting food for Share’s food bank. Please bring nonperishable food items to the Information desk at both Poirier and City Centre libraries. The most needed items are pasta, canned fruit and vegetables, peanut butter, larger size baby diapers, rice, canned meat, soup, fish and cereal. The next time you are buying groceries for your family, please take a moment to pick up an item for a local family in need. • Canadian citizenship cultural access pass: Have you recently received your Canadian citizenship? Starting now, the Coquitlam
Public Library is a pickup location for the Institute for Canadian citizenship cultural access pass.

32 years later, Terry Fox’s story still inspires young athletes YOUR HISTORY Bryan Ness
or myself, this time of year makes me think of times beginning and times ending — in nature as well as life. We say goodbye to the spring season and welcome summer with the solstice, which began locally on June 20 at 10:04 p.m. Lately, it seems our seasonal weather patterns have gone in reverse, with memories of excellent sunny weather way back in April and now suffering through the usual“June-gloom”of the last few weeks. This time of year also signifies the end of another school year, with young children eager to get on with their summer holidays, while others are graduating high school, also eager and a little apprehensive, to get on with their future lives. In June of 1976, the graduating class of Port Coquitlam Senior Secondary High School were also getting set to move on. Their time was now and they were preparing to work towards achieving their goals in life. Amongst them was a determined and driven young man
named Terry Fox. Terry had gone to Mary Hill junior high school prior to PoCo secondary and it was at PoCo where he learned many of life’s lessons that would serve him later in his endeavours. He had many fine teachers and coaches there, among them Terri Fleming and Bruce Moore, just to name a couple. The latter wrote in Terry’s annual that last year: “Terry, it’s a pleasure to see one of my players make athlete of the year. Thank you for being a part of my coaching career and experience at PoCo. I’ll always remember your contribution to soccer.” Terry received a $100 dollar CTA Bursary for Simon Fraser University, where in the fall of 1976 he began a course in kinesiology, the study of human movement. He
made the junior varsity basketball team at SFU under tough coach Alex Devlin, who saw that Terry was not the most gifted or skilled athlete physically, but made up for any shortcomings by sheer will, preparation and determination. In March of 1977,Terry was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer that strikes the young and healthy and his right leg was amputated above the knee.The night before his operation,Terry’s basketball coach from PoCo secondary,Terri Fleming, brought him a magazine with an article about Dick Traum, an amputee who had run the New York City Marathon with a prosthetic leg. After the operation, Terry would have to learn how to walk, then run again, all the while undergoing chemotherapy treatment at the B.C.
Cancer Control Agency facility in Vancouver. There were long months and years ahead for Terry Fox, times of triumph and sorrow that would eventually culminate with his passing at age 22 on June 28, 1981. Earlier this week, I was walking the near-deserted hallways of Terry Fox secondary on Port Coquitlam’s north side, the high school that was built in 1999 and named in his honour. I stopped to view Terry’s No. 4 Ravens basketball jersey, now retired and on display, and the words below: “In the locker room, every day we hear ‘Terry never gave up,Terry never gave up.’We play with his name on our jerseys and here we are, champions.” A new generation inspired by one man and his fight to end cancer. The last days of June always remind me of life and times beginning and ending, and the lasting legacy of Terry Fox. • Your History is a column in which, once a month, representatives of the Tri-Cities’ three heritage groups writes about local history.

Healthy Lifestyles BANNER 2013
Bramley 27 lbs lighter after challenge found he was using his lovely twin baby daughters as an excuse for not exercising. Like every parent who also works (Bramley went through two jobs during the Kin’s challenge), fitting in exercise was a daily chore. Sometimes Bramley would go a few days without hitting the gym and getting back into a routine was always difficult. His advice? “It’s so much easier to not [exercise] but you push your way through it and you think, I don’t know why I didn’t do more.” A lot of his motivation was his mother, who died at the age of 59 mostly from weightrelated issues. Bramley doesn’t want the same thing happening to him and wants to set an example for his daughters. The family continues to eat healthy, mostly vegetarian foods and walk or ride bikes on the Traboulay Port
Sheds 4.5 inches from waist doing Kin’s Green Challenge By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News
Delany Dunn Bramley is strutting through the malls and checking out clothing stores more frequently now than ever. Having shed 27 pounds and 4.5 inches around his waist since beginning the Kin’s Green Challenge over 13 weeks ago, Bramley is finding it easier to fit into regular-sized clothing and with that comes a new burst of confidence. He didn’t win the Kin’s Green Challenge sponsored by Kin’s Farm Market and Black Press, but he said it was a turning point of sorts in his life. “I grew up as an overweight child. I went through adolescence overweight,” he said. But after a concerted effort to lose 150 pounds six years ago and another 27 pounds in this latest challenge, Bramley is healthier, fitter and ready to embark on a new phase of his life. The father of twin two-year-old girls and husband to Lisa Marie has decided to train as a nurse after years working in broadcasting and public relations. He’s heading back to Douglas College, essentially a new man, and wearing some new clothes, after all his hard work and dedication to a healthy lifestyle. His latest body composition tests, provided through the Kin’s Green Challenge, proved what his new body shape was already telling him. “Things look great,” he said.“My iron and cholesterol levels are great.” Now he’s ready to be a role model for others as he heads back to nursing school. Bramley said he’s always been intrigued with the health field, having spent many hours in hospitals looking after his ailing mom. He’s met good and bad health professionals and believes, with his newfound knowledge and healthy lifestyle, he’d be a good nurse and a compassionate one at that. After all, he’s been down that long road and
Coquitlam trail on the weekend. He also has three more months of membership to the Hyde Creek Rec Centre and plans to use it.
“Maybe I can get rid of these love handles I have had my whole life,” he said, adding jokingly: “They’re not actually body parts.” email@example.com

Baby boomers driving Lower Mainland downsizing trend The baby boomers have long been the drivers of trends, and as they age they still make a difference. A new report from Colliers International, commissioned by HJ Properties, shows that many of that generation are considering their options regarding downsizing from their family homes. “The research really surprised me,” says Scott Brown, senior vice-president of residential and commercial marketing services at Colliers International Marketing. “I thought there would be a mass exodus to Kelowna, but that’s not happening.”
Instead, people looking to downsize in the Fraser Valley are considering how to stay in their neighbourhood, have money for retirement and help their children, all in one package. Projects such as HJ’s Waterstone in Langley are thus very appealing to downsizers, Brown says. With larger floorplans and plenty of amenities nearby, buyers of all ages are finding something to love about their new home. “Logic starts to win over magic,” Brown says. “People emotionally want to stay in a single-family home, but as the
NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT
baby boomers get older, they have different considerations.” One of the largest considerations is security, both of their property and themselves. “Having a neighbour looking out for you is important,” says Brown. “In a multi-family project, you don’t have as many worries.” The report showed that price was the biggest deciding factor for most baby boomers. “You can buy a multi-family home for about $400,000,” Brown says. “That doesn’t get you much in a single-family home.” Brown notes that he did see a difference in how buyers in the Fraser Valley were downsizing versus those in Vancouver itself, adding that Fraser Valley downsizers had retirement higher on their list of priorities. Another big reason the baby boomer generation is buying smaller homes? “I’ve been told that many people are moving into a multifamily home as a defence against their kids moving back in with them,” laughs Brown.
Morningstar home. “They feel more comfortable knowing that someone they know has had a good experience with us,” Calahan says. Partington is perfectly located on Burke Mountain. The neighbourhood has been growing over the years and now includes schools, parks and trails. It is also just a short drive to Coquitlam Town Centre for shopping and dining. You can also find leisure and recreation activities nearby. Sales of Partington will open on July 6 at noon. Interested buyers are encouraged to preregister for more information at www. morningstarhomes.bc.ca. Calahan notes that she’ll send registrants a sneak peek before the start of sales. The sales centre is located at 1508 Dayton Street in Coquitlam. For more information, visit the website or call 604-942-6370.

Partington showcases views on Burke Mountain By Kerry Vital
Morningstar Homes is once again at the top of their game with their latest project, Partington on Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain. “It’s really special up here,” says Deborah Calahan, vice-president of sales and marketing for Morningstar. “The views are pretty spectacular. It’s like being on top of the
world.” Partington is a collection of 45 singlefamily homes with spacious floorplans and luxurious finishings, including a truly massive kitchen with a granite island and tons of counter space. Hardwood flooring is included throughout the living areas, offset by the 19-foot vaulted ceiling, gorgeous floorto-ceiling linear fireplace and huge windows making the most of the views. “Our Partington homes were designed with incredible views in mind by making the windows the focal point of each home,” says Calahan. “We could not pass up the opportunity to show them off.” The four-bedroom homes are available in three different floorplans, ranging from 3,700 to 3,900 square feet. Each comes with an unfinished basement and a large private yard with a patio or deck. “We always strive to be innovative and offer our purchasers the best,” says Calahan.
“We never tire of trying to better our designs, with each new project being given its own consideration.” Partington is Morningstar’s eighth project on Burke Mountain, following the success of Kingston, Avondale, Somerton and many others. “We were the first to pioneer a community on Burke Mountain,” Calahan says. “They really welcomed us with open arms, and it’s now a highly sought-after place to live.” As the community grows, so does Morningstar’s reputation. “The Morningstar promise is to make everything as seamless as possible,” Calahan says. “Buying a house is one of the biggest purchases of your life. We want to make it as stress-free as we can.” She notes that they now get buyers preregistering who have heard about the homes through word-of-mouth from family and friends and who now want to live in their own

A well-watered garden is an art form IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter
n spite of another rather cool and wet spring this year, summer heat has now arrived in spades. As nice as this may be, it could be tough on our plants. Sudden heat, with soaring temperatures, creates demand for moisture which cannot always be met on short notice by the root systems of many plants.The result is burnt blossoms, damaged foliage and fruit drop. Fortunately, there are ways of minimizing the problems caused by this sudden fluctuation in weather. The most immediate relief for plants is a thorough, deep watering. It is best to do this early in the morning when the plants will make the greatest use of the water. Watering in the evening is not the best use of water because plants transpire valuable moisture away.The other huge issue is where to water. Soaker hoses around the drip line of all trees and shrubs is the most effective way to water. A little water is worse than no water. When you water, saturate the soil deeply where the roots are to keep them going downward instead of upward in an effort to capture what little moisture there is. The next most important task is to mulch all your trees and shrubs with suitable material. You should be looking for something which is a good insulator, can even-
tually be worked into the soil and has an attractive appearance. Garden compost is fine if it is well broken down, but its appearance is not always the best, especially when it dries out. Manures are also fine, but remember that they are slightly on the alkaline side and can cause problems with your acid-loving plants like rhododendrons and camellias. If you use manures, be sure they have been composted for at least six months or use mushroom compost. Grass clippings are quite suitable in the short run but once dried out, they tend to look rather shabby. My preferred choice is always fir or hemlock bark mulch. Bark is a wonderful insulator, it looks great and makes a fine soil amendment. A covering of three to four inches around all your plant material will prevent a great deal of stress, especially for shallow-rooted plants like rhododendrons. A thorough watering is the most important stress-relieving factor for all the plants under the eaves of your home. Heat reflected off buildings can be a real challenge for plants, so please do not neglect both the sun and shade areas under the eaves. Here, too, I find soaker hoses and drip systems are, by far, the most efficient and thorough method of watering. Remember for all your veggies, annuals, perennial beds and containers, try to get in the habit of watering very thoroughly to make sure the roots and soil are moist
down deep, not just on the surface. Water less frequently, but really soak the soil when you do water. Try to move away from overhead sprinklers and towards root soaking systems.They are much
more efficient and are great water conservers. It only makes sense to water where the plants are versus soaking everything. With proper soil preparation, mulching and watering, all our garden
plants should be able to withstand both heat and water restrictions.To conserve water, we all need to change the way we use water around our homes, even collecting it in rain barrels from our eave troughs when it rains.

Former Port Moody resident Adam Tambellini, seen here with B.C. Hockey League team the Surrey Eagles, was the highest ranked Canadian Junior ‘A’ Hockey League player to be chosen in this year’s NHL entry draft.
Tambellini bound for Big Apple Adanacs shakeup sends after being drafted by Rangers trio to Langley Thunder By Maria Spitale-Leisk Tri-CiTy News
When the New York Rangers drafted former Port Moody resident Adam Tambellini last Sunday, they were choosing more than just a name synonymous with hockey excellence. Tambellini, who is bred from NHL genes — his dad Steve and brother Jeff both played professional hockey — has made it to the big leagues on his own merits. The 6’3”, 175-lb. centre was the highest ranked Canadian Junior ‘A’ Hockey League player,

Surrey Eagles in their championship playoff run, which saw the team win BCHL and Western Canada titles. “Adam had a great year personally and a great year for us as a team,” said Eagles’ president, general manager and head coach Peter Schaefer.“To play in New York City, at Madison Square Garden, will be really special for him, and I’m sure he’s going to have a great career with the Rangers.” The 20-year-old was the Rangers’ top pick in the NHL Entry Draft Sunday in Newark, N.J., selected 65th overall.
Tambellini said hearing his name called was surreal, in a video posted on the New York Rangers’ official website. “I don’t think you can prepare for a moment like this. Both [my dad] and my brother just told me to have fun with it, and hope you end up in a good spot, and I couldn’t end up in a better spot than New York,” the draftee said. Tambellini, who is currently making his mark at the Rangers’ rookie camp, will play at the University of North Dakota next season. email@example.com -with files from Nick Greenizan
By Maria Spitale-Leisk The Tri-CiTy News
There has been a major shakeup within the Coquitlam senior Adanacs’ organization: four players defected to other teams in the 11th hour of the trade deadline — and general manager Randy Delmonico was fired in the aftermath. While there has been no confirmation that Sunday’s events are linked to Delmonico’s termination, senior Adanacs’
president Ed Ponsart was able to reveal that his former GM was indeed fired. “ Ye s , h e w a s ,” Ponsart told The TriCity News Wednesday. “That’s a private matter with the club. I’ll make no comment on that.” It was Adanacs’ goalie and reigning Western Lacrosse Association MVP Nick Rose who orchestrated a three-player trade, according to Coquitlam head coach Bob Salt. It’s his assertion that Rose wanted
to take teammates Dane Dobbie and Damon Edwards with him to the more triumphant Langley team. Salt said it’s been widely rumoured that the trio, who hail from Ontario, would not be returning to the WLA next season. And playing for the Langley Thunder — who are currently No. 2 in the standings — would offer their greatest chance at winning a Mann Cup. see DeAL, page 30

Deal nets A’s Goodwin, MacGrotty continued from page 29
Disheartened by the sudden departure of these players, Salt said his hands were tied. “When you deal with these nowaday athletes, they seem to have an opinion of where different players should go,” he said. Adding insult to injury, a condition of the trade is the Adanacs continue to pay Rose, Dobbie and Edwards’ rent at “Ontario House” in Coquitlam, where the team’s eastern players reside. Traditionally, WLA teams will take care of flights and accommodation for their eastern players. Still, Salt has no ill words for Dobbie, who he says played his heart out with the team, even through injury. “[Dobbie] is a terrific lacrosse player who deserves a shot with Langley because his career is coming to an end,” said Salt. Dealt to the Adanacs in the Langley trade were Brandon Goodwin, Matt MacGrotty and the Thunder’s third round draft pick in 2015. There is also a conditional pick attached to that deal: if Dobbie plays more than four games for the Thunder in 2014, the Adanacs will receive Langley’s first round pick in 2015.
When asked about Dobbie’s uncertain future — he will move to Calgary in the winter to play for the Roughnecks of the National Lacrosse League — Salt said there was no choice but to trade him to Langley. Other transactions on Sunday saw the Adanacs trade defender Jon Harnett to Victoria for a second round pick in 2014, and send Jimmy Delaney to Nanaimo in exchange for Mike Berekoff and Ryan Keith. “Jonny [Harnett] just wasn’t happy,” said Salt. “[Trading him] was my decision. He’s a young man. He was sitting on the sidelines; it drove me nuts. I thought he should go down and play senior ‘b’ [lacrosse].” Meanwhile, incoming Adanacs GM Kevin Hill brings a wealth of lacrosse experience to the team. Starting in 2002, he played with the West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association’s North Shore Indians before joining the senior Adanacs two years later. Hill was voted top goaltender in WCSLA in 2010 and 2011. Currently, he’s an assistant coach for Junior Adanacs and a Western scout for NLL’s
Rochester Knighthawks. Prior to his appointment on Monday, he was named the Adanacs’ assistant GM in March. “I wasn’t expecting [the GM job] so quickly,” said Hill. “Yes, definitely, it’s a little nerve wracking being tossed in right away.” When asked why Hill was a good fit, Ponsart said his connections back east will help the Adanacs going into a draft situation. “[Kevin’s] got an incredible lacrosse mind,” said Ponsart. “He has a good manner in dealing with people. He’s not confrontational, that’s important in our sport.” Hill is confident acquiring “gritty players” Goodwin and MacGrotty from Langley was the right choice. “We have a bit more sandpaper in our dressing room,” said Hill. “They have added size to our club. They will go into the corners and battle every shift.” Saturday night will be show time for the refocused Adanacs team, who are tied for fifth overall, when they play the Victoria Shamrocks and try to gain a foothold in the
run for the playoffs. “Our first goal is to make the playoffs, and then we will take it from there,” said Hill.“One step
at a time.” Nick Rose was unavailable for comment by The Tri-City News’ deadline.

Next, there’s a 180-km bike course that meanders through villages and mountains and features 5,000 feet of challenging climbs.
