Could we pay for Van. poop? Cities battle over sewage plant costs By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS
DIANE STRANDBERG/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Coquitlam’s Djiba Camara (with his son, Noah, 8) has gathered a container of clothing, electronics and sports equipment to send back to his homeland, Guinea, in Africa, but needs help to pay for the shipping costs. He has some help from a shipping company but is now fundraising for the remainder of the costs. For more information, see article on page A20.
A push by Vancouver and North Shore civic politicians to spread the cost of a new Lions Gate sewage treatment plant onto the rest of Metro Vancouver is running into strong resistance in other parts of the region. The cost of the new treatment plant was originally planned at $400 million but is now estimated to be $500 million to $700 million. Unless there are huge contributions from the federal and provincial governments, North Shore and Vancouver residents face skyrocketing utility costs that could add hundreds of dollars to their annual bills. Under pressure from those municipalities to ease the hit to their taxpayers, Metro Vancouver administrators are contemplating changes to the cost-allocation formula that could sharply boost the costs to homeowners in areas such as the TriCities, Surrey and Langley. see TALK OF, page A17
PoMo park pay parking? City looks at trial run at Rocky Point By Jason Roessle THE TRI-CITY NEWS
What’s the buzz about backyard bees in PoCo, PoMo? See pg. A6
Pay parking — or, at least, a pay parking trial period — could be coming to Rocky Point Park. Port Moody councillors
voted Tuesday to request a staff report about a pay parking trial period in the popular park. Municipal staff had presented council with a suggested communications strategy for the planned move but at the committee of the whole meeting, many councillors said it wasn’t neces-
sary to spend $4,860 to learn what they already know. “All visitors will say, ‘No’ to pay parking. We’re wasting our efforts,” said Coun. Gerry Nuttall. “I question the whole consultation process. “If we recognize the problem, why not address it now?”
He suggested the city move straight into a trial period, and the idea found traction amongst the other councillors. As part of the unanimously approved motion (Coun. Diana Dilworth was absent), staff’s report will reflect no charge for residents, a four-hour limit and using revenue
for community amenities and improvements. The three paid parking areas include the lot south of the Boathouse Restaurant (lot A), and B and E, which are on the north side of Murray Street, near the swimming pool and spray park. see COSTS OF, page A8

From road work to school work Bridge & highway builder donates furniture to SD43
By Diane Strandberg THE Tri-CiTY NEwS
Students in School District 43 will be the beneficiaries of a legacy of office furniture left behind by Kiewit Flatiron General Partnership as it winds down construction of the Port Mann Highway 1 project. Hundreds of desks, chairs, filing cabinets, white boards and other office equipment have been transferred from the contractor building the $3.3-billion project to District 43 with much of it stored in two local gyms. The job of stickhandling the furniture donation was done by Centennial secondary school graduate Scott Taylor, who is now an engineer with Kiewit. He helped facilitate the move on behalf of Kiewit with the support of project engineer Lorne Caley. “There’s a lot of pride in helping the city you grew up in,” Taylor acknowledged. Typically, Kiewit sells off equipment it no longer has use for after a job and as the bridge and highway projects are due for completion this year, offices are closing down, and used but solid furniture in good condition was looking for a home. Taylor talked about

Todd Clerkson, principal of pitt River middle school, chats with Kiewit engineer Scott Taylor and project manager Lorne Caley while accepting a donation of office furniture in an unofficial hand-off ceremony on the new westbound Lougheed off-ramp slated to open in a few weeks. the idea of the donation with his dad, Dave Taylor, a retiring SD43 administrator, and the two hatched a plan that got Caley’s approval and a nod from their Kiewit bosses. Kiewit hired a moving company to transfer the furniture to unused gyms at the former Ioco and Coronation Park schools, where it will be stored until it can be used by three new schools planned or under construction.
“We’re extremely grateful for their generosity and that a company of this size is helping out the community,” said board of education chair Melissa Hyndes as she donned a hard hat for a visit to one of the overpasses under construction in the Cape Horn interchange. Todd Clerkson, Pitt River principal, said many of the chairs, office equipment and storage cabinets will be used by teachers when
the $20-million replacement school opens this fall. The bonus, he said, is that money that would have been spent on teachers’ chairs and desks can now be spent on other things the school needs, such as new bleachers. “I don’t have to buy those [desks and chairs] any more, the savings can go to other supplies and equipment,”he said. SD43 superintendent Tom Grant said other new schools coming on
stream, such as replacements for Centennial secondary and Moody middle, and the new Eagle Mountain middle under construction in Anmore, may be able to use some of the equipment, too. “The donation couldn’t come at a better time,” Grant said, noting that the equipment budget for rebuilt schools is small but their used furniture is often in rough shape. As for Kiewit, the donation is a sign its the

Province rejects Coquitlam on byelection regs changes City councils in best position to decide: minister By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News
A request by Coquitlam city council to change the rules about civic byelections was dismissed by the provincial government this week. Mayor Richard Stewart wrote on behalf of council last month to Coralee Oakes, B.C.’s minister of community, sport and cultural development, to ask for ways municipalities could avoid the high cost of byelections. Coquitlam — which on Monday voted 4-2 to hold a vote this fall to fill the vacancies left by recently elected MLAs Linda Reimer and Selina Robinson — is one of 13 B.C. municipalities that saw their civic politicians leave for provincial seats. Besides Coquitlam, those municipalities facing byelections following the resignation of mayors or councillors are: Dawson Creek, Penticton, Ashcroft, Sicamous and Prince Rupert. Those councils that will not fill the vacancies before the November 2014 election are: Langley City, Oliver, Delta, Abbotsford, Pitt Meadows and Surrey (Pemberton is undecided). The estimated cost of a byelection in Coquitlam is $150,000, including staff time, and previous
Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart asked Coralee Oakes (right), B.C.’s minister of community, sport and cultural development, for ways municipalities could avoid the high cost of byelections. byelections recorded turnouts well below that for a general election. In the 2007 byelection to replace Louella Hollington, the turnout was 4.9% while the 2010 byelection to fill Fin Donnelly’s chair attracted just 7.5% of eligible voters even with the addition of referendum questions about smoking on patios and off-leash
dog times at Mundy Park. In his letter to Oakes, Stewart asked that the Local Government Act (LGA) be changed so municipalities wouldn’t be forced to hold byelections after June 1 of the year preceding the year of the general local election; currently, the cutoff is Jan. 1 of the election year. Failing that, Stewart
suggested the LGA allow the first runner-up candidate who lost the campaign take over an empty council spot. But Oakes contended the LGA is flexible enough: Councils can vote for a byelection; newly elected MLAs can hold both civic and provincial jobs; and leaves of absence are permitted until Jan. 1. “Municipal councils are in the best position to carefully weigh various factors in making this decision,” she wrote to Stewart on July 8. Oakes also recommended Coquitlam raise the matter before the Union of BC Municipalities — which council did two years ago (after Donnelly resigned to become MP) but its motion failed to garner support from the delegates. email@example.com

Coming soon to backyards in PoCo... beekeeping? By Gary McKenna
The Tri-CiTy News
The city of Port Coquitlam is moving forward with plans to allow beekeeping in residential areas. PoCo council voted on a report Monday night that will begin the process of adopting a bylaw permitting hives in lowdensity neighbourhoods around the city. “Allowing for bees could be an important way for communities to maintain bee populations and act as stewards of the environment,” said Coun. Brad West, the chair of city’s the smart growth committee. “It can also help residents to grow their own food.” If the bylaw passes fourth reading, residents would be allowed to manage hives providing they are 7.5 m from the property line and located in the backyard. They also must be 2 m above grade or located behind at least a 2 m high fence.
“Allowing for bees could be an important way for communities to maintain bee populations and act as stewards of the environment.” Coun. Brad West Feedback during a public consultation process was positive, said Coun. Glenn Pollock, and the community seems to be receptive to beekeeping. Development services director Laura Lee Richard said the most common concern is safety but noted that the type of bees common in backyard hives are not known to be aggressive. “They are not the bees that are typically biting you,” she said. “It is wasps and hornets that are the ones that do most of the biting. Bees will bite if
they are being threatened but they aren’t seeking you out like those darn wasps at a picnic.” Bee droppings are another issue, she said, with concerns that the yellow, sticky substance the insects emit during the spring could end up on nearby properties or vehicles. According to a staff report, this can be mitigated by placing a water source close to the hives, ensuring bees don’t have to travel far to hydrate. Port Coquitlam is not the only municipality in the Tri-Cities consider-

ing allowing backyard beekeeping. Port Moody residents could soon be allowed to keep hives on their property after council on Tuesday directed staff to draft a bylaw. The bylaw would include best practices and regulations beekeepers would be required to follow, according to report writer Robyn MacLeod, development services. The city of Port Moody’s 2008 animal control bylaw prohibited beekeeping after the municipality received complaints from property owners adjacent to existing hives. MacLeod’s paper noted several benefits, including helping with the worldwide shortage of honeybees after colony collapse disorder has killed off large percentages of the pollinators. On the con side, the report listed bee stings, fecal droppings, swarming and the fact hives attract bears. firstname.lastname@example.org -with files from Jason Roessle

Port Moody council is considering holding a trial run of pay parking at busy Rocky Point Park.
JASON ROESSLE/thE tRi-city NEwS
Costs of running pay parking at Rocky Point would be high continued from front page
Four options were presented for council consideration, ranging from the municipality running the entire program in-house to contracting out and having a service provider supply machines and maintain them. Costs varied from
$195,000 capital and administration/operating costs that would generate an estimated $202,000 annually (option one), to $135,000 in costs for an assumed revenue of $63,000 (option four). Each option had a variation in which pay parking and boat stalls would be located, as well as the type of fees
that would be charged — such as half off prices for residents and annual parking passes. The listed operating costs concerned some on council, including Mayor Mike Clay, who said he was “horrified” they could be so high. City manager Kevin Ramsay explained that much of the
projected capital costs came from the options where the city would purchase parking meters. Depending on the configuration, some can cost up to $15,000 each, he said. Staff expect the report will be presented to council in September or October. firstname.lastname@example.org

Port Moody poles stay put THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Port Moody’s flag poles will remain in their current city hall location — for now. A large piece of public art has been commissioned that will be placed in front of the poles, which grace the entrance to the civic centre plaza. Council debated Tuesday night moving the poles due to concerns the two items would compete for prominence. “I prefer figure three,” said Coun. Rick Glumac, about the option that would see the poles placed on top of city hall. “We are Canadians, British Columbians and residents of the City of the Arts. With flags in that location, it really does speak to the fibre of our community. That’s
CELEBRATE WITH US. Vehicles packed with features at the price you want.
an even more prominent location than now.” Coun. Gerry Nuttall disagreed, saying the poles should stay put. “The location on top of the building takes away from the building,” he said. “If they need to move, let’s do it later.” “I won’t support this,” said Coun. Rosemary Small. “Flags are more important than a piece of art.” Relocating the poles to the top of the municipal building doesn’t show an appropriate amount of respect, Small added. Councillors Small and Zoe Royer said they had heard from community members who did not want to see the poles moved. Council voted unanimously to re-examine the situation after the artwork has been installed.

Firefighters learn mud rescue skills Port Moody Fire/ Rescue has rolled out a new mud rescue protocol following a call last summer that showed firefighters needed to acquire some new skills. Fi r e C h i e f R e m o Faedo said last August, a woman ventured out into the mud flats next to the old mill site and got stuck waist-deep. Firefighters used ladders, ropes and shovels to free the woman, who was otherwise unhurt. “It was effective but it wasn’t efficient,” he said, adding two fire crews were tied up for an hour. The story gained national attention and, one month later, Port Moody Fire/Rescue was invited to take part in a mud rescue workshop in Washington State. Firefighters learned new techniques and the department bought a pair of mud rescue boots,

Out in the cold
PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside
■ WHAT WE THINK:
temporary shelter with success in housing homeless people has received a setback with Port Coquitlam’s decision not to renew its permit. Many city councillors are concerned the shelter, which housed 145 men and 26 women last fall and winter, is creating problems for the neighbourhood and voted down the permit, preferring to see a return to a temporary winter mat program that ran in different churches in the Tri-Cities. Clearly these concerns deserve more investigation to ensure that they are warranted and while moving the shelter around has its merits in requiring Port Moody and Coquitlam to share the burden of sheltering the region’s homeless, there are also risks in going back to the old way. First, it’s not as convenient and, therefore, won’t be as successful in sheltering people. Second, time is short for getting a revamped project running. Significant help and support are needed to ensure the successful program doesn’t get mired in red tape — and homeless people don’t left out in the cold.

A funny thing happened in the fishing boat... AS I SEE IT Andrew Holota
mail is a funny thing. You can have conversations with people anywhere in the world and develop a social relationship without ever seeing their faces or hearing their voices. Carol is such a person. I’ve known her — in the digital communication sense — for quite some time. She sent an email the other day advising me that she had read my latest column and it did not make her laugh. I explained that sometimes there is serious stuff going on that requires editorial comment, like politics and homelessness and such, which can suck the humour out of a drunk circus clown. She was unimpressed. She wanted to laugh and suggested I ought to get to work on recon-
necting with my inner mirth the following week. I explained that I was actually going to be away on a fishing trip with a buddy. She emailed back that she hoped something funny would happen and I could write about that. (Carol can be a bit of a taskmaster.) So I said I would be sure to tell my fishing partner, although I imagined it could develop into a peculiar conversation: Hey Roger… Yeah? Carol wants you to do something “funny.” Who’s Carol? A lady I chat with online. She likes to laugh. Chat with online… like a dating site? No, no. Email. Well, how did you meet her? Actually, I never have met her. Umm… isn’t that a little weird? I don’t know, you’d have to ask Carol. But my wife has met her. Oh dude, now that is weird. So what does she do?

Who, my wife? No, this Carol! She sends me legal stuff for work and we kibitz back and forth by email. She has a good sense of humour. How long has this been going on? A couple of years now. A couple of years? Does your wife know about this? Oh yeah. And how does she feel about it? I’ve never asked her. But I’m sure she’s OK with it. Do you ever intend to meet this person? Who, my wife? I’ve met her. Oh fer... No! Carol! Yes. I really should. Her office is not far from mine. So why haven’t you? That’s a good question.You know how you can be emailing with someone you’ve never met but after a while it just seems like you know them? Sort of like cyber-friends?
Uh, no... I guess it’s hard to explain. Is she married? And if you say,“Who, my wife?” I’m going to whack you with a paddle. Yes, I believe she is. But you’re getting the wrong idea. Oh gosh, no. How could I get any wrong ideas?You have an online chatty relationship with a married laughing woman who sends you legal stuff, whom you have never met but your wife has... Yeah, that’s pretty much it. I would like to get out of this boat now… my head hurts. OK. But don’t forget, Carol wants you to do something funny. Oh, there’s something funny here, all right. As in funny-strange, not funny-ha ha. I’ll email Carol and tell her you said that. It’ll give her a laugh.

FACE TO FACE: Was Coquitlam council correct in choosing to hold a byelection?
A waste of time, taxpayers’ cash E
arlier this week, Coquitlam city council voted to waste taxpayer money yet again. By a vote of four to two, council, in its infinite wisdom, decided to hold byelections to replace councillors Linda Reimer and Selina Robinson, who were recently elected to the provincial legislature. The byelection will cost the hardworking taxpayers of Coquitlam approximately $150,000 (which includes staff time). In my opinion, byelections such as these are a waste of time and money. First, Reimer and Robinson cancel each other out. Reimer is a rightleaning politician and Robinson is left-leaning, so adding two new councillors won’t add anything new to the make-up of council. There’s also the question of whether we really need eight city councillors in Coquitlam? We have too many politicians already. When you include Anmore and Belcarra, the Tri-Cities have 28 city councillors and five mayors for a population of about 220,000 people. By comparison, the city ofVancouver, which has a population of about 600,000, has just 10 council members and one mayor. I think Coquitlam could survive with just six councillors until
November 2014. Now, to be fair, councillors aren’t the only ones culpable for this mess. There’s a lot of blame to go around. Why did the BC Liberals and NDP recruit municipal candidates knowing this issue would come up? And what about Reimer and Robinson? To be clear: I’m a big fan of both Reimer and Robinson. In my opinion, they are both impressive politicians who we’re very lucky to have. But they put their names on the 2011 civic ballot, asking Coquitlam residents to elect them for a threeyear term and knowing that the provincial election would be in 2013. Less than two years later, they jumped ship and, now, taxpayers have to foot the bill? With all due respect to the two councillors, taxpayers should not have to be on the hook for ambitious politicians who cause byelections only to advance their own careers. Could they not have thought ahead? As usual, my colleague opposite wants to ignore the economics of the debate. Like a lot of socialists, he apparently believes money grows on trees. But $140,000 is a lot of money — money that taxpayers should not have to put out.
“Why did the BC Liberals and NDP recruit municipal candidates knowing this issue would come up? And what about Reimer and Robinson?” Andy Radia

No byelection a bad message K
udos to Coquitlam city council for Monday’s decision against accepting extended leaves of absence and opting instead for byelections to replace councillors — now MLAs — Linda Reimer and Selina Robinson. Well done, council, you got it right. But before we start waxing poetic about the sanctity of democracy, it should be said that a better decision would have been for councillors to recuse themselves and not decide the matter at all. Council’s deciding if, how and when its complement will be achieved is inappropriate and affords the opportunity for political chicanery. What if the departing councillors were both right-leaning and the remaining council was left-leaning? What decision could council possibly have made that wouldn’t be seen as politically self-serving? And what if they had voted to not hold byelections? They would have saved $150,000 (more than a loonie for each Coquitlam resident). Council and the community would have been spared the humiliation of a byelection turnout smaller than the membership of the Senator Mike Duffy defence league. And admittedly, the opposite politics of right-leaning Coun. Reimer
and left-leaning Coun. Robinson would likely have cancelled each other out anyway, so the political equilibrium on council may not have changed appreciably. But the message would have been a bad one. The message would have been that council need not follow provincially established guidelines for replacing departed councillors. The message would have been that we can function quite nicely with two fewer councillors for periods of up to 18 months. Why would we ever bother having eight councillors if six works fine? I’m uneasy with these messages and, thankfully, Coquitlam councillors were too. So, congratulations to Coquitlam council on its decision to hold a byelection. It was a good, gutsy call in overtime, a call made over the Hotel Gate whooping from the bench by my colleague and his paper clipcounting teammates. The real effect of this decision will be to preserve council’s political integrity, avoiding nudge-nudge political manipulations. Still, I would feel better if this decision was completely removed from council’s purview. How to replace politicians should be decided and administered solely by Elections B.C.

Beware coyotes The Editor, I was walking my puppy down Fernway Street on Heritage Mountain in Port Moody on June 27 at about 8 p.m. when a coyote came up from behind and attacked my dog by the neck. Fortunately, my dog was on his leash and I screamed and yanked back. The coyote dropped my dog but a second coyote appeared. I was screaming my head off when a neighbour came out and helped to chase them off and walked us home. Guinness was not injured. We are both shaken from the experience. Please be careful when out walking your pet. Claire Lawrence, Port Moody
engagement more important than nos. The Editor, With the recent, notto-mention forthcoming, byelections at various levels of government, the problem of painfully low voter turnout returns to the fore. While I recognize that there are, occasionally, acceptable reasons for not voting, by and large the excuses we hear are but empty rationalizations. Nevertheless, I do draw the line at the common criticism that nonvoters have“given up any right to complain.” Credibility? Yes, absolutely. Right? No, for in a healthy democracy the right to complain — dissent — should be seen as necessary and as inalienable as the right to
vote itself. The right to vote is lessened when it’s a requirement. Not voting is a choice, too. Not my choice, and usually not the best choice, in my view, but, in a free democracy, still a valid one. Inevitably, the discussion turns to direct action on increasing turnout, such as the twin notions of mandatory voting or of financial incentives such as tax credits for those who do vote. This is like taking your temperature and, seeing that it’s too low, holding the thermometer over the heater — you do get the numbers up but in doing so you lose track of the real, underlying problem. Low voter turnout is a symptom of a deeper
malaise; it’s not quite so easy to fix as all that but when we do the numbers will rebound. In particular, we need to get people to see themselves as personally responsible and relevant — essential, in fact — in the process. Mandatory voting or financial incentives would no doubt get more people voting but they would not make them engage, and the would only muddy the waters for assessing the true level of engagement. Meanwhile, we’re better off with somewhat fewer but engaged, thinking, voters, than disinterested or uninformed hordes voting for cash. Ron McKinnon, Port Coquitlam

Why dump your trash there? The Editor, I simply cannot understand the mentality of someone who would do this, especially in an area known for bear activity. To dump household garbage, old wood and bedding, it’s clear this is a person with a lack of respect for where they live, their community and, most of all, a lack of respect for the wildlife that also live here. Why? Philip Warburton, Port Coquitlam
The letter writer snapped this photo of a bear rummaging through dumped household garbage on Victoria Drive just east of Gilleys Trail in Coquitlam.

Council adopts Partington Creek plan The Tri-CiTy News
Hazel Drive is next on the list for Coquitlam city planners as they prepare the fifth — and final — neighbourhood blueprint for Burke Mountain. O n M o n d ay, c i t y council unanimously adopted the Partington Creek Neighbourhood Plan, covering the largest and most dense community on Burke (close to Minnekhada Regional Park), where up to 15,000 more residents will live over the next 20 years. At a public hearing last month, city council heard from a number of residents who supported and opposed the new plan, which has been more than eight years in the making. Longtime Burke resident Sandra Marsden called for more single-family housing in Partington — where three-quarters of housing will be multi-family — while some Victoria Drive property owners complained about their land being designated as a future park. When built out, the 595-acre commercial and recreational hub for Burke will see up to 5,700 more homes, three elementary schools, a middle school and nine parks.
Servicing and civic facilities costs for Partington are estimated at $159 million, of which $119 million is expected to be paid by development cost charges. The balance of $40 million will be paid by privatesector development, capital funding and borrowing, utility fees, density bonusing, community amenity contributions and senior government grants. A visioning process for the new Hazel DriveHarper Road area — located north of the Upper Hyde Creek neighbourhood — is set to start this fall. Other Coquitlam council news:
A three-storey daycare planned to take up three large lots on Burke Mountain is drawing concern from some Coquitlam city councillors. On Monday, council granted first reading to change the official community plan and rezone 3486 Wessex Crt. (off Kingston Street) for a proposed daycare for up to 74 kids aged one to five years old. Coun. Mae Reid said considering the building size and scope in the residential area, the ap-
plicants should do more to consult the neighbours. And she Asmundson c i t e d a letter the city received from the Northeast Coquitlam Ratepayers’ Association voicing the same concern. Coun. Brent Asmundson said a daycare is greatly needed on Burke Mountain, given the number of young families on Burke. A public hearing on the bid will be held July 22. Th e s a m e n i g h t , Coquitlam residents will also get a chance to speak to council about a proposal to build a fourstorey, 31-unit apartment block for 945 and 951 Charland Ave., off Blue Mountain Street. The site, located south of the Petro-Can gas station in the Austin Heights neighbourhood, is just west of five properties where council recently approved construction of a four-storey, 88-unit development.

bid and the Northeast Sector Area Transit Plan have been added as “high priority” items to Coquitlam’s business plan this year. But Coun. Lou Sekora said he’d like to see a project he championed three years ago — now listed on the agenda as “low importance” — be bumped up. Sekora said the parks dedication framework should be hurried to preserve green spaces. And he said he plans to bring up the topic every month at council until the framework is in place. Mayor Richard Stewart countered that the parks department has its plate full, especially with recent senior staff turnover.

A public artwork created by more than 100 Coquitlam residents will go up at the City Centre library branch in November. On Monday, city council approved the final design of “The Welcome Project,” two large birdhouses to be installed on the column in the library entrance lobby. The $45,000 piece overseen by artist Blake Williams was structured after a number of community workshops, onethird of which had participants under the age of 12. The city received a $35,000 Embrace BC Arts Engagement Grant for the artwork. email@example.com

Coquitlam Fire Chief Wade Pierlot said the cause of the fire is still being investigated and that it was fortunate that nobody was hurt. “The building had recently done a fire drill and their SURREY’S residents were up to date on what do if
“No one has yet convinced me that there’s a need for a different formula,” said Surrey Coun. Linda Hepner. She estimates Surrey households could face the equivalent of a 2% to 3% property tax hike to pay for the North Shore sewage plant. Under the existing formula, primary sewage treatment is paid entirely by the local municipality while the region covers 70% of the cost of upgrades to secondary treatment.

Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, September 9, 2013 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, December 9, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.
Initiative Advertising: Individuals or organizations who sponsor initiative advertising, other than the proponent and registered opponents, must register with the Chief Electoral Officer before they conduct or publish initiative advertising. Registration applications are available from Elections BC. Who May Sign the Petition: Registered voters as of Monday, September 9, 2013 may sign the initiative petition.

Few takers for inter-municipal licence in first quarter mobile business licences were sold in the three cities between Jan. 1 and April 30, 23 of them in Coquitlam. Endorsed by the Tri-Cities’ Chamber of Commerce, the program is intended to make it easier and cheaper for entrepreneurs such as landscapers, contractors and restorers to do business in and around Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody. Mobile permits — an “add-on” to the regular business licence — currently exist in other B.C. municipalities and, in each of those jurisdictions, local governments have seen
Thirty-seven mobile business licences sold between January and April By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News
A much-touted program rolled out in January to allow business people to pay for a single inter-municipal business permit for the Tri-Cities had a slow uptake in the first quarter of this year. According to a Coquitlam city staff report released this week, 37
a greater compliance under the simplified program. In turn, it also generated significant revenues for the participating municipalities. Coquitlam Hodge Coun. Craig Hodge, a past chamber president who lobbied for the initiative along with Port Coquitlam Coun. Mike Forrest and Port Moody Coun. Diana Dilworth, said he suspects
manager of corporate planning, said city staff spoke last week with the provincial government (which helped to set up the funding formula and structure the program) and concluded no more changes would be made. As well, Hunt said projected sales are now on track for the year. “The program needs to be region-wide so that all 22 [Metro Vancouver] municipalities are involved,” Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said. “Once it’s gone regional, there will be a whole lot of incentive for people to take part in it.”
sales were lower than expected in the first quarter as business owners are waiting for their Coquitlam licence to expire before purchasing a mobile permit. (In Coquitlam, licenses are valid for a year from the purchase date rather than following the calendar year). Hodge said he would like to see the three cities roll out an advertising campaign this fall to better promote the program. And he would like to see the program tweaked to expand the criteria to allow for more businesses to apply. But Michelle Hunt, Coquitlam’s

He’s got the goods but needs help to do good in Guinea By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News
He has the resolve. And there is definitely a need. Now, all Djiba Camara needs is a little help. The Coquitlam man wants to give a hand up to the people of his former African homeland and has amassed a container full of used clothing, electronics, sports equipment, uniforms and even sewing machines for communities in Conakry, Guinea. The PE and French teacher has already raised $2,000 through his Coquitlam church and the Langley school where he teaches. But shipping the goods is an expensive endeavour. He has made contact with a shipping company that is footing some of the costs but he’ll need at least $6,000 plus money to get the goods through customs. Camara has long-term plans to start a trade school where Guineans can learn computer skills, sewing and smallscale agriculture to improve the economy. He’s passionate about his plan to help his former countrymen, including his five brothers, reach self-sufficiency.“If I can give them something to do [to improve their lives], then I will feel I did
something with my life.” Camara left Guinea in 1979 to play soccer, including Hungary, where he became a citizen and, at the request of his mom, didn’t return for 30 years. When he finally did go home to be with his mother, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s, he was shocked at the lack of food, the poverty and poor living conditions. Many meals were skipped because there was no food.“I kept waiting for breakfast to come but none came, then I waited for lunch and there was no lunch. They only eat one meal a day.” He provided a family feast of roast lamb and saw children stuffing their faces as if it was their last meal. The experience changed the focus of his life. The FIFA-certified coach who once coached the women’s Whitecaps is hoping to use those skills to raise more funds for the long-term project. His condo in Coquitlam that he shares with his son, Noah, is stuffed from floor to ceiling with items destined for Conakry, and he plans on giving away his beds and his TV and DVD collection. Members of the L a n g l e y Te a c h e r s ’ Association and the Langley school board are on side with the effort and his students sold t-shirts with his smiling face and the world “Winnerville” in reference to his joking that bad behaviour will send
Trades needed for home Team project A Port Moody family has been chosen by the Home Team for a home renovation to make their townhouse more liveable. Kathleen Black and her family have been selected by Cornerstone Seventh Day Adventist Church for a project planned for Sept. 16 to 22 and a church spokesperson said electrical, plumbing and trades are needed to help out. “Once again, we are appealing to our many partners and supporters who have been a blessing to the Home Team for 11 previous projects dating back to 2007 to assist us in this,”Russ McCann said in a press release. Black has a severe inflammatory autoimmune skeletal disease, is mobility impaired and legally blind, and needed help for a renovation that was left unfinished when she began chemotherapy and other treatments several years ago. McCann said he is looking for trades that have helped out with 11 previous projects as well as new trades that might be able to come on board to complete the renovation. Trades can view the extent of the project on July 23 from 2 to 5 p.m. For more information, call 604-240-1985 or email at cheruss8@ netscape.net.

K. Yorston I love how "locally friendly" PoCo is. Being in the heart of the Fraser Valley, we're never too far from the urban life of Downtown Vancouver; the beautiful slopes in North Vancouver (which we have a beautiful view of) and of course the other side, such as Golden Ears, Burke, and Minnekhada.

Endings, beginnings & some PoCo inspiration YOUR HISTORY Bryan Ness
or me, the end of June/beginning of July makes me think of times beginning and times ending â€” in nature as well as life. We say goodbye to the spring season and welcome summer with the summer solstice. It is 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 1976, the graduating class of Port Coquitlam high school were also getting set to move on. 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 prior to PoCo high, and it was at the latter where he learned many of lifeâ€™s lessons that would serve him later in his endeavours. He had many fine teachers and coaches there, among them Terry Fleming and Bruce Moore, just to name a few. The latter wrote in Terryâ€™s annual that last year: â€œTerry, itâ€™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. Iâ€™ll always remember your contribution to soccer.â€? Terry received a $100 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 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, Terryâ€™s basketball coach from PoCo high, Fleming, brought him a magazine with an article about Dick Traum, an amputee who had run the NewYork 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 in Vancouver. The suffering he witnessed of his fellow cancer patients there, many of them young children, began Terry down his road of destiny, believing he could make a difference. There were long months of sweat, toil and
tears ahead for Terry Fox, times of triumph and sorrow that would eventually culminate with his passing at age 22 on June 28, 1981. A couple of weeks ago, I was walking the near-deserted hallways of Terry Fox secondary school on Port Coquitlamâ€™s north side, another school year having just ended. I stopped to view Terryâ€™s No. 4 Ravens basketball jersey, now retired and on
display. And on a card were printed the words of Ryan Sclater, as told to The Tri-City News, after the Ravens won the 2012 B.C. AAA senior boys high school basketball championship: â€œIn the locker room, every day we hear â€˜Terry never gave up, Terry never gave up.â€™We play with his name on our jerseys and here we are, champions.â€? A new generation
inspired by one man and his fight to end cancer.

HAFI adapts homes for B.C. seniors and people with disabilities
Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for
H O U S I N G M AT T E R S
easier access, easy-to-reach work and storage areas in the kitchen, lever handles on doors or faucets, walk-in showers, and bathtub grab bars and seats. Brenda is a strong advocate for the program and has even shared HAFI brochures with nurses in the renal unit where she undergoes dialysis. If you or someone you know is having difficulty performing day-to-day activities safely and independently – the HAFI program may be able to help. Since the program began, more than 300 households completed renovations with HAFI financial assistance, making it possible for seniors and people with disabilities to continue to live in the safety and comfort of their home.
Port Metro Van wants to hear from you – maybe green scene Elaine Golds Speak up on future of port’s lands
ort Metro Vancouver has been under fire recently over their plans to vastly increase coal shipments through the Port. In June, the Metro Vancouver Board wisely passed a resolution to oppose new thermal (i.e., electricity-producing) coal shipments from the Fraser River estuary. Many people may be unaware Port Metro Vancouver is presently engaged in its third round of public consultation regarding future land use plans and is accepting public comments until July 31.This provides a timely opportunity for people to express their views on future Port activities (see www. portmetrovancouver.org for more information). The Port is also accepting public comments with the same deadline regarding a joint plan with ports in Seattle and Tacoma to supposedly reduce their air quality emissions (porttalk.ca/nwpcas). Port MetroVancouver initiated public consultation on its land use plan in 2012. Locally, a public open house was held in Coquitlam and a workshop was conducted in Port Moody last October. Unfortunately, both events were only lightly attended by members of the public. I recently attended a workshop in Surrey to review how the plan is shaping up and, again, was disappointed to see only a few members of the public present. With the recent controversy over coal shipments, I was expecting to see a few more concerned citizens in the room. But given that the port chose to hold this workshop on a work day, it is, perhaps, not surprising that only a few members of the public were able to attend. The land use plan, which will guide port activities for the next two decades, is expected to be finalized in 2014; thus, the time to speak up is now. At the Surrey workshop, we were first informed of the results from the Phase 2 public consultation. Apparently, key concerns of the public were the plans for expansion of the port facilities. People wanted the port to make better use of its existing lands and, particularly, to avoid expanding into farm lands supposedly protected
Port Metro Vancouver is a busy place and the port is asking for the public’s input on its land use plans. under the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). Despite this, the revised goals make no mention of avoiding impacts on the ALR. Perhaps the port needs to be reminded of the public’s desire to avoid further loss of ALR lands to port and portrelated (i.e., roads) expansions. The draft land use plan also supports the creation of new land (i.e., through landfilling) for future port uses if suitable existing lands are not available. I can only assume this means the port intends to expand its facilities at Roberts Bank next to the BC Ferry terminal. Expansion in this area has been extremely controversial given this site has critical shoreline habitat that is part of Canada’s most important bird area for migratory birds. In October last year, areas around Roberts Bank were finally included in a UN Ramsar Site designation as critical wetlands but Robert Banks, equally important for migratory birds, was omitted. One way in which the Roberts Bank area could be made safer for birds would be to bury the above-ground power lines, which supply the coal terminals.This would help to avoid deaths when birds crash into the power lines, especially during foggy weather. Surely, this would not be an unreasonable request for such a globally significant area for migratory birds. One objective I was really pleased to see the port suggesting as part of its environmental stewardship program would be getting involved with the removal of abandoned and derelict boats, which can pose a safety hazard and pollute the waters. Such abandoned small boats have become a growing problem for waterfront municipalities such as Port Moody and I am pleased to see the mention of this initiative
in the plan — and more encouragement from the public would likely be helpful in achieving some action. Air emissions from port traffic are a huge concern; these are mentioned in both in the draft land use plan and, more specifically, in the North West Ports Clean Air Strategy. But I am concerned the proposed objectives are weak; for example, they are proposed to be only voluntary. In addition, if the proposed
Kinder Morgan pipeline is built, greatly increased tanker traffic in Burrard Inlet to over 400 tankers per year will more than negate any potential reductions in allowable emissions per tanker. A recent Metro Vancouver report based on studies conducted in 2010/’11 indicated already unacceptable emissions of sulphur dioxide and suspected carcinogens (vanadium and nickel) from marine tanker traffic in Burrard Inlet. Since then, tanker traffic has increased. Allowing overall air emissions in Burrard Inlet to increase even more should be unacceptable. Because democracy works best when everyone participates, I encourage people to speak up and participate in these important public consultations over future port activities in the Fraser River and Burrard Inlet.

Fresh and healthy foods Head to market for taste & health
uly is a most splendid month. Long days, no school, summer vacations and local produce beginning to peak are all reasons to make a trip to your nearest farmers’ market. If you came in May for a visit and were disappointed, it’s time to come back. Most markets are in full swing and operating at capacity. Even if it is raining (and we all hope it isn’t), your local markets are full to the brim with fresh, local produce and other delights. My personal favourite this time of year is cherries. As soon as Silverhill Orchards arrive from Mission, I know it’s time to eat. I start with the Sandra Rose cherries and keep right on going through to the Lapins. Every week is another basket into my mouth. Cherries are a nutritional powerhouse, too. Packed with antioxidants and anthocyanins, they aid in the reduction of heart disease, inflammation and
Delicious and super In the spirit of feeding your body all that is needs to function optimally, here’s a recipe that make the most out of fresh, local superfoods.
PARCHMENT WRAPPED SALMON PACKETS 12 x 12 inch piece of parchment paper 4 oz wild salmon fillet ½ cup shredded kale 1 tbsp diced red pepper ½ tsp finely chopped garlic 1 tsp olive oil Salt and pepper to taste
Place salmon in centre of parchment, season with salt and pepper. Place kale, peppers and garlic on top and drizzle with olive oil. Seal salmon and vegetables in parchment (wrap it like a parcel) and bake 20-25 minutes depending on thickness of salmon. Salmon is cooked when it flakes easily with a fork. (You can use any vegetable you like, just make sure it is cut small enough to cook quickly. I like to use spinach with grated carrot and zucchini too) cancer. Cherries are also a natural source for melatonin, vitamins A, C and E, potassium, magnesium, iron, folate and fibre.That’s a tremendous amount of benefit from one little fruit. So while we are talking about health benefits, let’s have a look at some of the other market superstars. Years ago, I read a book called Foods that Fight Cancer written by two
Canadian doctors and endorsed by the Cancer Research Society. Of the 13 foods featured in the book, 10 can be purchased at market and are available now. Cruciferous vegetables are the easy ones. Broccoli, kale, cabbage and cauliflower can all be found at several of the vendors, and you can get organic as well. Kale has all the benefits of antioxidants and fibre as

well as being a rich source of calcium and vitamin K. Tomatoes are another powerhouse. When they are cooked, they are an excellent source of lycopene, which is thought to help fight certain cancers. Fresh garlic and soy are on the list, too. Never Say Die Farms from Pitt Meadows grows the best garlic and Red Barn has been growing soybeans. How about sautéing the two together for a yummy side dish? Omega 3s are important for overall health and wild salmon from the market will fill that need. My two favourite anticancer foods from the market are green tea and dark chocolate. Culinary Blossoms serves up several delightful varieties of green tea that are perfect for sipping or chilling. Look for your local markets every Thursday from 3 to 7 p.m. at Leigh Square in Port Coquitlam; Friday from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Port Moody rec complex; and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Dogwood Pavilion parking lot.

A group promoting the wellbeing of children and families is seeking the public’s help in spreading family-friendly messages in the Tri-Cities. The Tri-Cities ECD Community Development Committee is asking parents with children up to six years of age, residents without kids and business owners to participate in a survey to test marketing messages that will be rolled out later this year. Co-ordinator Susan Foster said the survey — available online at www.fluidsurveys.com/s/ TriCitiesECD — will test three marketing messages targeted to special groups to see if they are meaningful and worth using. The goal, Foster said, is to get people thinking, talking about and supporting families. “The research is showing that we aren’t as engaged with our community,” said Foster, whose group represents health, school, community and social service agencies serving kids and families

Tri-City volunteers needed for Alzheimer’s support Tom, Joseph, Irene and Donna meet once a month to talk about how their lives are affected by dementia. They are all caring for family members who are in various stages of the disease. They, like many Port Coquitlam residents, also all attend a free caregiver support group offered locally by the non-profit Alzheimer Society of BC. “This is their lifeline,” said Dorothy Leclair, the society’s support and education co-ordinator for PoCo and the North Fraser, in a press release. “They can meet with
people with similar issues who are in a unique position to offer support to others on the same journey. The group is a place that they can talk openly, share information and give each other mutual support.” An estimated one in 11 B.C. residents over age 65 already lives with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia. And that number is projected to double over the next generation. The resulting need for assistance is soaring, and volunteers help ensure the demand is met.
“Volunteers are absolutely invaluable to our team,” Leclair said. “It’s exceptionally rewarding work, to know that you are making a meaningful difference in someone’s life. Our volunteers tell us they get far more back in return than they give.” Want to be a support group facilitator? The position has a few requirements: • excellent listening and empathetic skills; • knowledge of dementia or a willingness to learn; • facilitation skills or a willingness to learn;
• formal or informal caregiving experience an asset; Training is provided, and a one-year commitment is required. For more information and to volunteer, contact Leclair at 604-398-0780 or dleclair@alzheimerbc. org. Residents can get more information on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias by visiting www.alzheimerbc. org.

Tri-City News Friday, July 12, 2013, A33
Take a taste of Tuscany or Tunisia in Coquitlam lar dark chocolate and espresso balsamic vinegars of Modena, Italy are not available that day, although, Henry insists, will be in later that week. But there is no shortage of other balsamics to try, such as maple, red apple and cranberry pear. They are like dessert wines, the flavour is so intense, and Henry explains that these special vinegars are made from the “must” of pressed grapes, and cooked for hours over direct fire
By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News
In a retail world where people want to buy in bulk — and buy cheaply and quickly — a Coquitlam company called Tasters goes against the grain. Owned by Patrick Henry and Noel Shepperd, Tasters (www. tri-citiestasters.com) is a shopping experience where half the fun, OK all of the fun, is tasting the product and chatting with the affable shop owner. This takes time but. inevitably, you walk out the door with not one, but maybe two or three of the oils and vinegars pressed and aged meticulously, and displayed in silver canisters that look something like a Russian samovar used to make tea. But it’s not tea we’re tasting in the little shop in a strip mall off Lansdowne Drive, although that might be an interesting addition to the Tasters repertoire but, rather, a selection of luxurious olive oils and vinegars flavoured in surprising ways and served in a tiny cup. “Try the Picual,” sug-
DIANE STRANDBERG/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Patrick Henry, owner of Tasters Oil and Vinegars Retail and Tasting Room, takes a break to survey his selection of olive oils and vinegars at the store on Lansdowne Drive. gests Henry, starting off the day’s half-hour tasting with a mild virgin olive oil with a light tomato flavour. It’s a bit like tasting wine, as you sniff then roll the liquid in your mouth to get the flavour, intense because the oil is as fresh as you can get it, the olives having been pressed within three hours of picking. Tasters has about a dozen different oils some fused or pressed with other ingredients, such as blood oranges, or infused with herbs, such as the Tuscan herb oil that
tastes a bit like pizza. All are rich in polyphenols, which are cholesterol-busting, and maybe the reason people on Mediterranean diets live so long and without heart disease that is a perennial problem for North Americans. Once you tour the oil room, it’s time to move on to the inner sanctum — the vinegar room where a dizzying array of balsamic vinegars is available for tasting. “Oh, try the chocolate,” my tasting partner suggests. It turns out the popu-

until syrupy. The cooked must is then aged in wooden barrels; the traditional balsamic sold by Tasters is aged for 18 years. Henry didn’t start out an expert in oils and vinegars. In fact, he is a retired social worker who was looking to start a new chapter in his life. “I thought, I can do this,” he said, when he checked out a similar store in the U.S. From interest, Henry b e c a m e p a s s i o n at e
when he visited Veronica Foods, a California company that imports olive oils from a mill in Tunisia a n d f r o m g r o we r s around the world, and sells oils, balsamic vinegars and other gourmet food products to retailers such as Tasters. “We tasted all these [oils and vinegars] and I thought, ‘This is amazing,’” he said, adding later: “I think it’s a great product. I can’t sell worth beans unless I believe in the product.”
Open only since just before December, Tasters is starting to develop a steady clientele of foodies, while also reaching out to newcomers by attending farmers’ markets and conducting tastings for groups and other retailers. Henry hopes there are enough people interested in fine food who are also willing to take the time to learn more about the traditions of luxurious olive oil and vinegar. firstname.lastname@example.org

Diagnosis the first step in living life with dementia $9.99 ALL FOR
Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be an overwhelming experience for many people, but for Constanta Jarvis, 75, of Nanaimo, the prospect of a diagnosis beckoned relief.“If I ever get a diagnosis,”she recalls thinking,“I’m going to throw a party.” Like many British Columbians living with dementia, Jarvis waited many years before receiving an official diagnosis of dementia — 10 years, in fact, between the onset of vascular dementia symptoms following a stroke and the time she received her diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. After years of wondering and concern about troubling symptoms, the diagnosis meant Jarvis was finally able to face the disease head-on. “The diagnosis gave me the opportunity to stop fighting with myself,” she said in a press release While each person’s reaction to a diagnosis of dementia will be unique, many people living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia report that the diagnosis was an essential part of recognizing and learning to live with their dementia. A timely diagnosis is also instrumental in helping people impacted by dementia to plan for the future with their family and friends. As Jarvis explains, the diagnosis also gives the person living with dementia an opportunity to build skills and support systems they will need throughout the dementia journey. For that, she turned to the Alzheimer Society of BC. “If I go to the store and use a debit machine, the
debit machines are always different and I have a terrible time,”Jarvis explains.“In grocery stores, I carry two cards. One is by the Alzheimer Society and one is from Scotland, because I was born there.The Society card opens up like a little book and there are tiny little squares inside. One says I have difficulty understanding. Another, I have difficulty with… you know. And you just tick them off [to explain your condition to someone].” The Alzheimer Society of BC card is one of many tools a person with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia can use to communicate and to help educate others about their dementia. Jarvis also attends Alzheimer Society support groups, where she can share her story with others who understand what she’s experiencing. “It can be a very lonely and a frightening journey,” she says.“That’s why the support group is so wonderful. We were all different to start with, and how the condition affects our brains is different, and the type of dementia we each have is different, but we all understand each other.” see SOCIETY, page A38
If you, a friend or family member is facing a diagnosis of dementia, know that you are not alone. The Alzheimer Society recommends the following steps: • Take immediate action and build your knowledge about dementia, its symptoms and the treatment options that may be available for the person living with dementia. Information about dementia can be found at www.alzheimerbc.org. • Start creating a plan for the dementia journey. The earlier you can make medical and legal decisions, the easier the process will be for everyone involved. Talk to your family doctor or lawyer, or contact the Alzheimer Society for resources that can help.

Jarvis has empowered herself through education and a new support system so that she can embrace this new chapter of her life. “I guess it’s just life being life and unfolding the way it needs to, and me being prepared to learn and grow from the process,”she says.“I don’t recall ever thinking, ‘Why me?’ I mean, you just look at the world. We’re a world full of people, struggling to find ourselves and trying to live with each other.To me this is an amazing journey.” Contact your local Alzheimer Society Resource Centre and find out about services and learning opportunities available in your community.You can also call our toll-free Dementia Helpline at 1-800-936-6033.

Vacationing in style at The Cottages at Osoyoos Lake The hot summer weather has finally arrived, and it’s officially time to get away on a long-awaited vacation. What better place to relax with the family than at your own lakeside cottage in sunny Osoyoos? “You might get only an inch of rain a month here,” says Eric Van Maren, partner of Van Maren Construction Group. The company is currently selling the Cottages at Osoyoos Lake, a gorgeous waterfront property with 284 cottages, tons of amenities and a close proximity to everything Osoyoos has to
offer. A wide range of people have been interested, but Van Maren notes that something did surprise him. “Many of our buyers are retired or planning to be retired,” Van Maren says, chalking that up to “Osoyoos is a more relaxed pace of life.” Many of these buyers are looking to live in their cottage fulltime, a serious possibility when the homes range from 1,281 to over 3,000 square feet with two to four bedrooms. With 14

different floorplans to choose from, it won’t be hard to find the perfect space. “I think the number of retired buyers speaks to the amenities that are available here,” Van Maren says. “These are detached homes for the price of condos.” You’ll also get access to two swimming pools, a 7,000-square-foot clubhouse and 20 acres of lawn, on top of the 1,500 feet of waterfront and 500 feet of beach. Buyers with families are also a big demographic at the cottages. Van Maren says the project is perfect for children, who can play on the beach or on the lawn and make friends with other cottage-goers. The location is definitely the biggest draw for those who want a taste of waterfront living without a high price point. “This is the warmest lake in British Columbia,” says Van Maren, adding that Osoyoos is also the wine capital of B.C. and has several golf course within 10 to 15 kilometres of the project. For more information about the Cottages at Osoyoos, visit www.osoyooscottages.com or call 1-855-742-5555.
includes multiple workout areas, a large outdoor deck, a games area with billiards tables, foosball tables and a big-screen TV and, best of all, a huge indoor atrium soaring 32 feet high with trees and a park-like feel. The atrium will also include plenty of greenery and places to sit and relax. Other amenities at The Summit Club include a lounge with a chef ’s kitchen, a baby grand piano and plenty of space to entertain, and a children’s play area on the fifth floor. MThree is located in the thriving neighbourhood of Coquitlam Town Centre, meaning you can easily walk to shopping, restaurants, schools and leisure activities. You’ll also find the upcoming Evergreen Line and the West Coast Express easily accessible, so your commute doesn’t need to include a car. Homes at MThree start in the low to mid-$200,000s for a one-bedroom and the low-$300,000s for a two-bedroom. For more information, visit www.liveatmthree.com, call 604-472-9555 or visit the presentation centre at 2992 Glen Drive, Coquitlam, open every day except Friday between 12 and 5 p.m.
The homes at Cressey’s MThree include overheight ceilings, spacious open floorplans and the renowned CresseyKitchen, with its integrated European appliances, wood-grained laminate cabinetry and quartz composite countertops.
MThree hits a summit in Coquitlam By Kerry Vital
Cressey is rising above the rest with MThree, Coquitlam’s tallest tower at 48 storeys and the final phase in their very popular Metropolitan Series. “The response has been phenomenal,” says Cressey Senior Development Manager Jason Turcotte. “We have a variety of homes to choose from, and people are loving the amenities and the finishings.”
MThree joins MOne and MTwo, which raised the bar for condominiums in the neighbourhood. “Each project has added pieces to the puzzle,” Turcotte says. “The feedback has been great, and I think it’s really helped buyers to physically see what we’re offering here.” Like all Cressey projects, one of the most amazing features at MThree is also one of the main gathering areas in the home. “We take a lot of pride in our CresseyKitchens,” Turcotte says. “The kitchen design at the presentation centre is in virtually every home in the project. People love being able to touch and feel the kitchen they will actually have in their home.” The kitchens at MThree include woodgrained laminate cabinetry, modern undercabinet lighting and sleek quartz composite countertops, complemented by a glass tile backsplash and integrated European

he appreciation of ornamental grasses is skyrocketing. But It takes a while to understand the nature of each variety of grass and to see what it looks like during every season of the year.Yes, they have their down times but this little hiccup is easily overshadowed by their many fine qualities. Most grasses, once established in a site they enjoy, are virtually carefree: a little watering in summer, a little protection in winter and an annual pruning. They all have fresh new growth in late spring, attractive flowers in autumn and an interesting look even in winter. Late summer breezes cause their leaves and stems to sway, adding not only life and movement to your garden but also the sound of rustling foliage — it’s like listening to nature’s music. Many grasses, such as miscanthus which really plumes up in late summer, literally shine when backlit by the warm golden sunlight so unique to fall. For many winters now I’ve enjoyed evergreen grasses, such as carex, gently caressing the edges of hanging baskets and containers. Grasses have so much to offer — they’re plants for all seasons. We just have to learn how to use them properly. My three favourite grass families are the miscanthus, pennisetums and carex. Miscanthus are medium to tall showpieces that make great focal points in mid-sized or large gardens. Their fall flowers not only add a spark to autumn gardens but they also continue through the winter until heavy snows or winds take their toll. Tall varieties, like Miscanthus ‘Giganteus’ or as sometimes called ‘Robustus’ (zone 6), grow eight to ten feet tall with long green leaves touched with a bit of silver. They make a great screen by mid-June and their bronze flower tufts are truly magnificent. The most sought after miscanthus, however, is ‘Porcupine Grass’ (M. strictus — zone 5). This six to seven foot tall grass has gold bands along its leaves and a tall upright habit, making it especially elegant. There are many new compact forms of this grass, making them far more adaptable to containers and small space gardens. ‘Gold Bar’ is a new and even more brilliantly striped variety in huge demand.Variegated grasses are also very ‘in’ today. Miscanthus sinensis ‘Variegatus’ (zone 6) is still good but the new large leafed
striped ‘Cabaret’ is truly stunning. They usually only bloom during long, hot summers and falls but in dark green perennial borders or in lawn areas with a great many trees around, they are the spark that can ignite a garden. There are so many great new miscanthus varieties — some that plume out as early as the beginning of July right up to late September and they make a splendid display all winter. I encourage everyone to take a good look at all the varieties as they start to bloom in gardens and garden centres. The most beautiful grass of all, bar none, is Purple Fountain Grass (Pennisetum setaceum ‘Rubrum’ — zone 8). Alas, to survive our winters it must be brought inside a greenhouse but it is the focal point of all focal points. Surrounded by anything pink, it is magnificence plus. There are many new tender varieties of pennisetum not to be overlooked, like the white and green ‘Skyrocket’, the soft pink ‘Sparkler’ and the vibrant bright pink ‘Cherry Sparkler’. Among the hardy varieties, I like the new ‘Burgundy Bunny’ because it has the darkest foliage of any hardy pennisetum. Blending various pennisetums together can create some wonderful effects. For example, Pennisetum alopecuroides (zone 5) with its creamy white plumes, interplanted with Fountain Grass (P. setaceum — zone 5) makes a dreamy combination. Surround these plants with pink flowering ‘Autumn Joy’ sedums and you’ll have quite a display. Each fall and winter, we’ve been using more and more carex along with evergreen perennials to create some pretty amazing effects. My all time favourite is Carex morrowii ‘Evergold’. There are so many new varieties of carex coming out the past few years, it’s really hard to keep up but I also love the new C. m. ‘Everest’ because of its brilliant white and green foliage. They will tolerate most winters in a container. In the ground, they are like beacons of light all winter long, especially on those really dark, dreary days. Folks, if you’re new to grasses, proceed slowly. Try a few this fall and see how they can heighten the effect of your late summer, fall and winter garden. I like to plant them fairly close together for an instant effect and to choke out weeds. The basic rule, however, is to plant them as far apart as their height. The grasses I have mentioned are not invasive and they will all add a whole new dimension to your late summer and fall garden.

Coquitlam Reds pitcher Curtis Taylor recorded the win during a doubleheader against the Victoria Eagles at Mundy Park on Sunday. Coquitlam defeated the visitors 3-2 in the opening game before closing out the day with a 7-2 victory.
Two more wins for Reds after weekend games Coquitlam takes down Eagles in Mundy Park doubleheader By Gary McKenna ThE Tri-CiTy NEws
With less than a week to go in the regular season, the Coquitlam Reds are in the middle of the pack in the B.C. Premier Baseball League standings, a game behind the fifth placeVictoria Eagles. The team racked up a pair of wins on the weekend but still have a long way to go if they hope to catch up with some of the elite teams in the league.
O n S u n d ay, the Reds t o o k on the Eagles at Mundy P a r k , BECking s e n d ing the visiting islanders home with a couple of losses following an afternoon doubleheader. Coquitlam wasted no time in getting on the scoreboard in the first game, batting in runners Jordan Zazulak and Cameron Williams in the second inning. But Victoria was able to keep the game close when Brandon Feldman was batted home by Ben
Goertzen in the third inn i n g . Feldman would l a t e r t o u c h JaCo h o m e plate himself in the sixth. The Reds defence, however, was able to hang on in the seventh and push the game into extra innings. In the eighth, Coquitlam’s Cameron Williams sent a single to left field, allowing runner Hayden Jaco to break the tie and win the game. Curtis Taylor got the win on the mound for the Reds.
Victoria came out swinging in the second game of the day, putting up two runs in the first inning and leading for most of the game. However, the visitor’s defence completely fell apart in the fifth, allowing the Reds to score seven runs from Jaco, Brandon Becking, M a x H o l l i n g wo r t h , C a m e ro n Wi l l i a m s , Dalton Anderson, Austin MacDonald and T.J. McCullough. The team will get ready this week for a meeting with the White Rock Tritons on Saturday on the road before heading to Vancouver to take on the Cannons on Sunday.
Saints struggle in first game of the post-season The Port Coquitlam Saints will have to win two games in a row if they hope to keep their playoff hopes alive after dropping game one of a best-ofthree series Tuesday night. The B.C. Junior ‘A’ Lacrosse League basement dwellers had a tough time containing the Langley Jr. Thunder’s offence in a match at the Langley Events Centre. But the club hopes to turn things around when the series moves to the Port Coquitlam Recreation Complex for game two Friday night.
After allowing a spate of power play goals on Tuesday, the Saints had a tough time levelling the score against the BCJALL’s top club. However, PoCo was able to slow down the Thunder’s offensive push and even managed to score a few goals in the third. Lyndon Knuttila, Tyler Klarner and Gord Philips all scored in the opening period, while Connor Goodwin and Tanner Fisher added markers in the middle period. Klarner eventually earned the hat trick with two goals in the
final period for a teamhigh of five points, but it was not enough to give the Saints a win. PoCo goalie Garrett Spann allowed 14 goals on 57 shots in the game while at the other end of the rink, Langley’s Spencer England allowed 10 goals on 35 shots. The Saints also struggled in the faceoff circle, winning 11 out of 26 draws. Langley will visit PoCo tonight at 8 p.m. at the Port Coquitlam Recreation Complex.

June 1, 1926 â€“ July 7, 2013
With deep sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved father and grandfather LIM CHUAN TIONG â€“ â€œTomâ€? to his friends â€“ at the age of 87. After a 24-year struggle with the debilitating effects of a massive stroke suffered when he was 62, Tom took his final rest on July 7, 2013 â€“ one day short of his lunar birthday â€“ surrounded by family. â€œPapaâ€? â€“ to his family made up of wife Tessie and children Lily, Pinky, Alex and Wilbert and daughter-in-law Jeanalyn â€“ and â€œKong Kongâ€? â€“ to his grandson Carlo â€“ was born in Xiamen, Fujian in China on June 1, 1926 in the Chinese lunisolar calendar. Due to political turmoil in China, Tom resettled in the Philippines in the late 1940s, and with Tessie (his wife of 62 years whom he met in Manila), worked hard to raise his family. Tom was working as an office manager when he suffered his stroke in 1989. Tom was a devoted husband and father, happiest when he was with his family and doing projects around the home. Despite limited mobility, Tom spent his first years in Canada in the mid-1990s tending to a good array of indoor and outdoor plants. He was very proud of his annual yields of tomatoes, strawberries and tulips in his backyard. Until his body rendered him too weak to leave his bed, Tom looked forward to his weekly outings to the Coquitlam Stroke Recovery Association meetings, where he made new friends and found loving support. Tom was an avid reader in Chinese and English, with a love for writing and a talent for drawing. His nephews and nieces in China spoke of how they always looked forward to his letters from the Philippines, enjoying them not only for the content but for his prose and beautiful handwriting. Tom also loved music and sang in a firm baritone voice. When dementia robbed him of the ability for words, he would sing the musical notes of his favorite songs. Tom will be greatly missed by his family and also by those whose lives he touched, including great-niece Jessica Lee-Chua, daughter of Tomâ€™s beloved niece Virgina Ong Lee. During the last three days of his life, Tom and his family received comfort and help from the caring staff at Mckenney Creek Hospice in Maple Ridge and from his loyal caregiver, Grace. A gathering for family and friends to pray and share memories of Tom will take place on Saturday, July 20th at 2:30pm at the Poirier Community Centreâ€™s MacDonald-Cartier Room on 630 Poirier St. in Coquitlam. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Stroke Recovery Association of BC â€“ Coquitlam Branch (624 Poirier St., Coquitlam, BC, V3J 6A8) will be greatly appreciated. â€œPapaâ€Śyou are now freeâ€Śno longer a prisoner of your bodyâ€Ś.free once more to walk, run with your legsâ€Śand create, fix, or hold anything with your hands. Until we meet again, you will always be in our heartsâ€Śâ€?
