Choo choo! Two cities’ centennial celebrations are gathering steam

Take a train to the past in PoCo & PoMo By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

DIANE STRANDBERG/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Moody Station Museum curator Jim Millar, dressed in his conductor’s uniform, is preparing for a heritage train ride from Port Moody to Mission on Sunday, Aug. 18. Tickets cost $30 and are available at the museum on Murray Street (cheque or cash only). Another, shorter trip is planned the same weekend between Moody and Port Coquitlam.

Fresh food and a helping hand, too By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Fresh, nutritious food is a luxury for some fixed-income families and seniors but the expansion of a farmers’ market coupon program could change that. This week, the provincial government announced it would be investing $2 million into an initiative that gives financially struggling households $15 worth of coupons each week to make purchases at their local farmers’ markets. see AIMING TO IMPROVE, page 6

All aboard! That’s sure to be a well-used phrase on the weekend of Aug. 17 and 18 when a CP Rail heritage train rolls in to the Tri-Cities. As part of Port Moody and Port Coquitlam centennial events, the 1950s train will be picking up passengers so they can experience what rail travel was like before airlines and autos became at the major modes of transportation for the masses. “It’s a little bit of nostalgia for folks to know what it was like to ride a passenger train in the 1950s,”said Jim Millar, curator of the Port Moody Station Museum, who is co-ordinating the train ride for his city. see CAR NAMED, page 17

Change for Burquitlam Townhomes, apt. block are planned By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Eighteen homes on the south side of a Burquitlam block are now boarded up. A long fence down the top of the five acres is there for security. One property even has an excavator waiting in the front yard.

The Vancouver-based developer Intracorp has been assembling the land over the past two years and is waiting for the go-ahead from city hall to build 107 three-storey townhomes and a 99-unit, five-storey apartment block at 514-554 Foster Ave. and 636-640 Aspen St. In 2011, when company representatives first came before council with a pre-application

halted the bid, saying it was “inconsistent” with

the 2002 Burquitlam Neighbourhood Plan, a visioning document expected to get updated this fall. Like other transitioning communities in Coquitlam — they include Austin Heights, Maillardville and City Centre — Burquitlam will feel the squeeze of significant growth in the coming years. see CHANGES, page 9

SUMMERTIME SAFETY: Alcohol doesn’t mix with driving, boating or swimming

Buntzen booze bonanza for police By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

The beach at Buntzen Lake was soaked in booze after the Coquitlam RCMP dealt with a staggering 225 liquor pour-outs at the park last weekend. Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said despite the fact police have stepped up patrols at local parks and beaches, more people are still consuming alcohol in public. He added that since he has been with the detachment, he has never seen so many liquor offences in one weekend. “Last year, we did not see that high a number of pour-outs,” he said. “Even in the last few weekends before this last one, the numbers were a lot lower.” On top of the 225 pourouts, police also issued 16 tickets for liquor-related offences and removed 30 people from the park for rowdy or unruly behaviour, he said. Despite the numbers, Const. Chris Nordlun of the Coquitlam RCMP’s Rural Section said most people come to the beach to barbecue and enjoy time with their families. The number of people who bring booze to

DROWNING PREVENTION

This weekend will mark the last few days of Drowning Prevention Week, an effort launched by the Life Saving Society to draw attention to drowning deaths and water safety. The week runs from July 20 to 28 and during that time, beach-goers are encouraged to be cautious around the water and swimmers to know their limitations. According to the B.C. Coroners Service, between 2008 and 2012, 58.7% of drowning deaths occurred between May and August. Eighty-one per cent of drowning victims were male and alcohol was a contributing factor in 40.2% of cases. local parks and beaches is relatively small but they seem to bring large amounts of alcohol with them, he said. “We came across six

not one of them had a lifejacket.” He added that 40% of all drowning incidents involve alcohol consumption and beach-goers

should leave the booze at home when they head to the water. Of the 397 drowning deaths that occurred in B.C. between 2008 and

2012, more than 50% (200) were involved in recreational activities such as boating or swimming. Another 175 (44.1%) were falls into water, motor

vehicle accidents where vehicles landed in water or deaths in bathtubs. The last 5.5% were occupational accidents. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

38 taken off the road for drinking, driving By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

Coquitlam RCMP’s summer CounterAttack program has already taken a number of impaired drivers off the road this summer. Since the beginning of the month, police have issued 15 90-day immediate driving prohibitions, nine three-day prohibitions and 14 24-hour suspensions. Coquitlam RCMP Const. Michelle Luca said Mounties have also been successful at reducing the number of people who have been injured on the

The combination of the RCMP’s CounterAttack program mixed with other driving enforcement strategies are directly linked to the drop in injuries and fatalities on local roads, Luca said. Drivers can expect to see more CounterAttack road checks throughout the summer.

Big plans for PM traffic calming By Jason Roessle The Tri-CiTy News

A raft of traffic safety projects may be pushed forward after Port Moody council heard there is sufficient money in asset reserves for the work. A resident of Parkside Drive spoke as a delegation to council July 9 asking that work slated for that roadway be undertaken this year instead of 2015, where it currently sits in the schedule. Following this request, the city’s engineering/ transportation department detailed all traffic calming projects included within the 2013-2017 capital plan and presented it to council at Tuesday’s meeting. Staff noted that from a financial perspective, all the projects could be done simultaneously and that would result in cost savings. The reserve can go into the negative in 2013-2014 with a commitment from council to repay the funds in following years. An amendment to the motion, which was subsequently approved, called for staff to report back to council on the financial feasibility and potential cost savings of moving all the projects forward to this year. Coun. Gerry Nuttall was the lone politician opposed, saying even if council decides to do all the projects simultaneously in the next year, the Parkside work should be moved up in the schedule (it’s currently seventh on the list). “I think we can answer the question about Parkside Drive tonight,” he said. “There’s capacity and room in the budget. I’d like to see it move forward in 2013.” But Coun. Rosemary Small said, “I don’t understand why Parkside Drive is put ahead,” adding,“There are a lot of safety issues

ROAD WORK

The projects in the five-year plan are: • calming on Noons Creek Drive (2013); • new crosswalk at Ioco Road and Campbell (2013); • school crosswalk improvement at Ioco Road and Barber Street (2013); • calming on Noons Creek and Heather/ Hemlock intersections (2014); • intersection improvements at Ioco and Jacobs roads (2014); • more traffic calming on Noons Creek Drive (2015); • calming on Parkside Drive (2015); • crosswalk improvements at Ioco and April roads (2015); • traffic calming on Ravine Drive (2017).

Historical Highlights

Speculation caused by the imminent arrival of the railway in Port Moody was rampant. In 1885, a lot at Clarke and Queens Streets was bought for $15 and sold later that year for $1,000. Port Moody was expected to become the biggest town in the west until William Van Horne decided the company would extend its rail line to Vancouver. The railway’s executives thought Port Moody was too narrow for expansion.

Aiming to improve health continued from front page

Eileen Dwillies, a manager at the Port Coquitlam Farmers Market, which is open Thursdays in the summer, said the program will go a long way toward helping disadvantaged people acquire healthy produce. “Food banks often don’t have the facilities to have fresh fruit,” she said. “With an afternoon market, this is fruit that is picked that day.” There is also an education component that comes with visiting the farmers’ market. Dwillies said the gatherings often feature classes on how to use various fruits and vegetables that can help to expand a person’s cooking horizons. “What I am hoping is that it will teach more people how to use the food,” she said. “It is mostly education we are hoping to get through this.” According to the provincial government, the coupons are treated like cash and can be used to purchase a variety of food products, from produce to meat and dairy. The program is expected to support about 1,300 families and 400 seniors province-wide in 2013 at 34 participating markets, including those in PoCo, Coquitlam and Port Moody. Farmers’ markets must partner with a local nonprofit to participate in the coupon initiatives. In PoCo, the coupons are distributed by the Wilson Centre seniors group while the Coquitlam Farmers Market, which runs a Sunday market as well as one on Fridays in PoMo, has partnered with the Healthy Babies program out of the Fraser Health Unit on Wilson Avenue in PoCo. When a coupon is used, the vendor is reimbursed by the organizers of the farmers’ market at the end of the event and the program is administered by the BC Association of Farmers’ Markets. Tabitha McLoughlin, the executive director of the Coquitlam Farmers Market, is familiar with the coupon initiative and said Coquitlam was one of the pilot markets when the program was launched in 2009.

Changes concern residents continued from front page And with the Evergreen Line coming up North Road in 2016, Burquitlam is poised to be a major transit hub, with stations at Lougheed Town Centre and near Burquitlam Plaza. But with densification will come growing pains for residents, city council says. At Monday’s public hearing — before city council deferred its decision for one week to think more about Intracorp’s request to change the land use along Foster — several Burquitlam residents stepped forward to voice their concerns. Besides the extra traffic, on-street parking and noise the development would generate, the BurquitlamLougheed Neighbourhood Plan update hasn’t started yet, they argued. Issues were also raised about the environmental impacts and security at the Burquitlam Community Gardens. They also said there was little consultation when the proposal changed to 206 units. “You need to keep residents in the loop,” said Ben Craig of the Oakdale Neighbourhood Association. Therese Weel of the Burquitlam Community Association said she drew up a petition in March, when the legal notices were published and letters were mailed out to affected agencies, that called for a smaller development, as put forward in the original plan.

JANIS WARREN/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Intracorp has bought 18 homes on the south side of Foster Avenue. It plans to develop the properties for townhomes and an apartment block as well as expand Burquitlam Community Gardens.

“We canvassed the neighbourhood and ultimately collected the signatures of 29 residents living near the development,” Weel told The TriCity News. “Researching, understanding the issues, discussing the options and providing written feedback requires considerable time and effort. “ Th e r e s i d e n t s — through their individual and collective efforts — have responded clearly and cohesively.” Still, David Jacobson, Intracorp’s senior development manager, said the concept for the apartment came late, while the company was working with city staff. Coquitlam’s new Transit-

Oriented Development Strategy (TDS) calls for high growth around rapid transit centres. Asked what efforts Intracorp made to consult the public about its new plan, Jacobson responded by email yesterday (Thursday) saying, “Since the TDS and resulting development objectives were all part of the broader Burquitlam Neighbourhood Plan update process, city staff wanted to ensure that all public notifications and open houses were city-directed. “Intracorp respected this request to not get ahead of the city’s planning process and we understand that all required public notifi-

cations were properly conducted by the city.” Meanwhile, as council weighs the pros and cons next week, it will also consider the financial benefits. The Intracorp application is the first to fall under the TDS that was adopted last July. As a result, the company would be required to pay community amenity contributions. For the city, that translates to $600,000 for a future recreation facility, which is needed in Burquitlam. As well, Intracorp says it will offer more housing choices in Burquitlam, an area that has the city’s largest rental stock. Its apartments will typically have one and two bedrooms while the townhomes will be 1,400 to 1,650 sq. ft. each and have a minimum of three bedrooms. City council is expected to consider the Intracorp proposal at Monday’s council meeting. jwarren@tricitynews.com

s there a better time of year to be a (hungry) resident of British Columbia? Chilliwack corn. Okanagan peaches and cherries. Blueberries and other produce from the Fraser Valley. This beautiful B.C. bounty offers summer meal possibilities aplenty. And it’s a reminder of the enormous value to our province of its farmers. In the Tri-Cities, shoppers are fortunate they can go directly to the source for juicy blueberries. They can also take advantage of a nature’s riches at the region’s three farmers’ markets, supporting local growers: • Fridays, 3 to 7 p.m., Port Moody rec complex hosts a market; • Sundays, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Coquitlam Farmers Market takes over the parking lot at Dogwood Pavilion, 624 Poirier St., Coquitlam (entrance off Winslow Avenue); • and Thursdays, 3 to 7 p.m., Port Coquitlam Farmers Market is held at Leigh Square, behind city hall; We encourage you to check them out and enjoy the best of B.C.

Are ever-rising gas prices changing habits? AS I SEE IT Frank Bucholtz

T

he soaring price of gasoline is on the minds of many people this summer. There is some evidence, mostly anecdotal, that it is starting to change people’s habits. I’ve heard that Vancouver Island is hungry for tourists this summer. While gas prices are just one factor — the main one being the huge expense of taking the ferry — they can’t be dismissed. Additionally, the long lines going to and from the U.S. are at least partially driven by gas prices. Even though gas prices there have also risen steeply, gas remains cheaper south of the border, largely because there is far less tax on gas in Washington state. Unfortunately, the cheaper gas price leads to more Canadians doing other shopping in the U.S. and killing two birds with one stone. They are also hurting local businesses and reducing

local tax revenue. I was driving in a number of areas of Surrey last Sunday and was quite surprised at how few vehicles there were on the road, particularly as the Fusion Festival was on — and that event was supposed to attract 100,000 people. While many used transit, which is great, one would think some people might drive. But judging by the few vehicles I saw in the middle of the day on roads like 96 Avenue, 128 Street, Scott Road, 72 Avenue and King George Boulevard, many people weren’t driving anywhere. The high levels of taxation on gasoline are the prime reason that gas is often $1.50 per litre in most parts of the Lower Mainland. When it hit that level in 2008, people were outraged. This time around, it seems people are quietly fighting back. In Langley, prices have been a little lower, mainly due to Costco opening up a gas bar and lowering their prices. This has caused other retailers to follow suit, although the prices just across the Surrey border in Cloverdale are

“The high levels of taxation on gasoline are the prime reason that gas is often $1.50 per litre in most parts of the Lower Mainland. When it hit that level in 2008, people were outraged. This time around, it seems people are quietly fighting back.” often up to 10 cents a litre higher. TransLink and the provincial and federal governments aren’t about to lower gas taxes, even by half cent a litre. They are addicted to the revenue. That’s why we will never see the carbon tax go away. Even if it was scientifically proven that the earth was cooling, that

tax is staying. And when a politician judges that he or she can get away with it, it will be boosted. While most people would live with high gas taxes if there was an alternative, that alternative does not often exist in Langley and other areas of the Lower Mainland, including parts of the Tri-Cities. People in these places have poor or no transit service, and that’s why they get angry when they hear about subways to UBC and gondolas to Simon Fraser University. World oil prices have risen, and that has something to do with our gas prices. But according to experts, it seems they have more to do with refinery shutdowns, wholesale prices and even the lack of pipeline capacity. One thing is for sure: Most people have no more money in their pockets than they did last summer. So with the price of gas as much as 20 cents a litre more than it was a year ago, that means many people are driving much less than usual.

FACE TO FACE: Is the British anti-internet porn plan sensible and workable?

A good step to protect children E

arlier this week, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron revealed an interesting idea in an attempt to combat child pornography in his country. He wants every household in the U.K. to have its access to internet porn blocked by default. Homeowners would then have to ask their ISP provider to opt out of this block. My colleague opposite and I — like 99.9% of the population — agree that government can and should do more to eradicate child pornography in this country but he thinks the U.K. plan goes too far. I, on the other hand, think it’s an idea we should adopt here. Even adult pornography is something we should be discouraging. First, it’s not healthy for our children to have access to this stuff. “Many children are viewing online pornography and other damaging material at a very young age and... the nature of that pornography is so extreme, it is distorting their view of sex and relationships,” Cameron said in his speech. It’s true. While parents can add filters to their home computers, how many of you actually do that? How many of you know how? And besides, with laptops, smart phones

and tablets, our teenagers are mobile and could potentially gain access to internet porn when outside the home. A blanket policy such as Cameron’s would effectively keep porn away from children and teenagers. It would also decrease porn consumption in the adult population, which isn’t such a bad thing. A recent study by the Witherspoon Institute, signed by more than 50 academics, claims that pornography consumption can “damage people of all ages and both sexes, negatively impacting their relationships, productivity, happiness and their ability to function in society.” To be clear, measures such as those proposed in Britain will not make internet porn illegal — it would still be available to those that really want it.You would just have to opt-in for it. It would be just like the old days at video stores, where you would have to go in to the back room to get your special videos. I understand there are technical challenges with Cameron’s plan, and I doubt you can block all the internet porn, but it’s a step in the right direction — for children and for all of society.

A tech & moral simplification B

ritish Prime Minister David Cameron wants to end internet pornography using a program he calls “Default On.” Default On would require U.K. internet service providers to block pornography from customers unless the customer“opts in”to porn access. Sounds good, an admirable goal. We’re all concerned about the easy accessibility of online pornography. Anything we can do to stem the tide would seem like a good thing, right? Shouldn’t Canada follow Britain’s lead to block pornography? If we could, yes. But as much as we would all like to stop pornography, Prime Minister Cameron’s Default On pornography block wouldn’t stop or even slow the spread of internet porn. Blocks and filters are imperfect. The more comprehensive they are, the easier they are to circumvent. As Tom Meltzer of The Guardian explains,“Any Default On system needs to be simple enough for a stupid adult to navigate, and if it is, any web-savvy kid could find their way around it in no time.” To work, the filters would need to prevent users from asking search engines“How do I turn off these porn filters?”And then the question “How do I turn off the filters for questions about turning off filters?”

And so on, for ever”… And sadly, internet blocking actually discourages parents (the only effective internet filter) to be vigilant in supervising their child’s internet activities. In short, Cameron’s plan to centrally block internet pornography is a technological and moral oversimplification. But even more shocking, Mr. Cameron’s porn-blocking plan includes a recommendation for a “Parent Port”website to“take parental complaints about, any ad, program, product or service, and to help parents work together on initiatives ending the sale of inappropriately ‘sexy’ clothing for young children, like underwire bras and T-shirts with suggestive slogans.” This is how far we’ll go when we opt for centralized moral control and censorship. And historically, censorship has not ended well for us. It gave us the banning of Huckleberry Finn, Catcher in the Rye, The Colour Purple and The Great Gatsby. I don’t want the government or an internet company to decide what information I can access or what I can read. Strange, this is usually the stance taken by my anti-government colleague over there.

You never skimp on tools. Don’t start now.

letters Abolish senate, it makes sense The Editor, At one time, it was just common sense to abolish the Senate. However, since Canadians now realize that their Senate is redundant, superfluous and a complete embarrassment, politics has replaced common sense, with the Conservatives and Liberals feeding us nonsense. They are spending gobs of money to make us believe that the Senate, in some form, could be viable. The Senate’s only purpose is to give a “sober second look” to work that has already been completed in Parliament. Senators do not have any control over Parliament. To make the Senate workable, politicians argue, we need to elect senators, and redistribute and add seats to provide a semblance of representation by population. To do this would probably result in a duplicate Parliament occupying the Red Chamber, requiring even more tax dollars, with no better results or benefits. No matter how far back we go in the history of the British parliamentary system, our forefathers knew that this duplicity would never work, so they opted for what was believed to be the less obvious; they established the House of Lords (the Senate) and the House of Commons (Parliament). One of the other points politicians make in their quest to reform the Senate is to give senators a purpose for being; that is, to do something constructive rather than making mischief. Ways to provide this purpose have been suggested, such as having them appoint judges. But without senatorial influence, Parliament would be in an improved position to efficiently proceed with improvements to the ways that things are done in our national capital. Cliff E.

A recent volunteer trash clean-up in Coquitlam’s Hoy Creek has again highlighted the problem of errant litter. A VCR, shopping carts, lawn chairs and a computer monitor are just a few of the large and notable items the Hoy/Scott Watershed Society (HSWS) pulled from the delicate waterways starting at the Hoy Creek hatchery, heading downstream to the first foot bridge near Glen. Society members also took out a surprising number of swimming wrist bands, a fire extinguisher, the base of a wheel jack, two hypodermic needles and much more. “It’s been a problem for years,” said Keith Kozak, HSWS public relations. Volunteers regularly check trails for trash and will do a formal cleanup when a significant amount of garbage has accumulated, he said. Some of the materials could be considered a risk to the fish and other wildlife.

Clark pitches carbon tax to the other premiers Black Press

Premier Christy Clark is pitching B.C.’s carbon tax to her fellow premiers, bolstered by a study that shows it is reducing fossil fuel use compared to other provinces.

As premiers gathered Thursday in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont. for a Council of the Federation meeting, B.C. Environment Minister Mary Polak said B.C. needs other provinces and U.S. states to get on board before moving further on

Legislation requires that revenue be offset by reductions in business and personal income tax, so it encourages fuel efficiency. The BC Liberal Party campaigned in the May election to freeze the rate

carbon pricing. Introduced in 2008, B.C.’s carbon tax now adds about seven cents to the cost of a litre of gasoline, with comparable taxes on coal, fuel oil, propane and other fuels.

for five years. Polak said results so far show it is reducing per-capita fuel consumption without depressing the overall economy, but the province has gone as far as it can on its own. The study by University

They were built by the Canadian Car and Foundry in Montreal and served CN for 24 years until they were transferred to VIA Rail, which took over the passenger services of CN and Canadian Pacific Railway in 1978. The cars were in service until 1994, then sold to BC Rail for a steam-hauled excursion service between North Vancouver and Squamish. Canadian Pacific acquired the cars after BC Rail withdrew from

Hands off our farmland, Metro Vancouver tells port Study areas target Pitt Meadows and Richmond land By Jeff Nagel Black PReSS

Metro Vancouver directors are calling on the port authority to agree not to turn scarce farmland into more shipping terminals. The port is redrawing its land use plan and has proposed to designate six special study areas — four in Richmond, one in Pitt Meadows and one in Vancouver — that could be considered for future port-related use. Metro’s regional planning and agriculture committee voted Tuesday to object to any potential future use of agricultural land by for port purposes. “It should be on industrially zoned lands, not agriculturally zoned lands,” Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said. The study areas in Richmond and Pitt Meadows are all in what Metro classifies as agricultural lands in its regional growth strategy, while the one in Vancouver is general urban land. The port hasn’t indicated what exact process would be used to eventually decide on the use of the study areas. “Their report describes in very flowery language how much they want to work with the cities and the region and First Nations and impose strict environmental standards,” Brodie said. “Yet they avoid the very basic issue [of eventual use] and say they’ll look at it later.” The special study areas are defined by the port as areas that “require additional study, consultation and planning to determine future use.” Despite the objections, Metro has no power to block the port’s plan. Metro reps have been

farmland in our city.” The port’s plan says it expects “intensification of use and growth in all sectors” along the south arm of the Fraser River, between Delta and Richmond. One of the challenges the port faces is the continued conversion of industrial land for redevelopment — with the consent of local cities. Port officials have been adamant that the Pacific Gateway is a huge source of current and future jobs and is a critical trade route for the broader Canadian economy. Politicians fear the port could ultimately override the Agricultural Land Reserve to industrialize whatever farmland it decides to use.

Protecting and enhancing the chines’ streams green scene Elaine Golds You can have a say in future

T

he chines escarpment is comprised of the forested hillsides on the south side of Port Moody where the slopes climb to meet the Coquitlam municipal boundary.These lands, long recognized as too unstable for residential housing, form a visually pleasing backdrop to the older parts of Port Moody. Along this escarpment, a number of small streams arise within these forests and flow through Port Moody into Burrard Inlet. At one time, all of these streams would have supported salmon. Now, they lie mostly buried in culverts, where they flow through the historic areas of Port Moody with their potential to support ocean-migrating salmon, for the most part, sadly extinguished. But there is now an opportunity to restore and enhance at least some of these streams. Prior to the development of plans for residential development or renewal, the city of

Bruce Brandhorst

Just south of St. Johns Street in Port Moody, Dallas Creek still provides reasonably good habitat for salmon. Coquitlam has wisely required that stormwater management plans must be developed to ensure that opportunities to restore stream health, prevent erosion and promote groundwater infiltration are not overlooked. Because the streams of the chines are shared between Coquitlam and Port Moody, the two municipalities, along with Metro Vancouver, have jointly undertaken the development of a so-called chines integrated stormwater management plan (ISMP). The concept of“storm-

water”is a little outdated but speaks to the potential for heavy rainstorms to erode property and flood low-lying lands. In a natural forest, much of the rainfall will infiltrate into the ground, where it replenishes the water table and ensures a gradual release into streams. Once development occurs, however, the land surface is hardened by roads, roofs and other surfaces that prevent rainwater infiltration. This has the effect of concentrating rainfall into sudden and erosive flows.

spawning habitat would be very beneficial.This creek also has potential to be severely affected by construction of the Evergreen Line as its tunnel will emerge directly in front of the creek. Between South Schoolhouse Creek on the east and Suterbrook Creek on the west, about a dozen small streams flow from the chines. For the most part, their flows have been channelized, buried in culverts and now discharge at four points into Burrard Inlet. Of these streams, the chines ISMP identifies both Kyle and Dallas creeks as having some potential for“daylighting” and enhancement where the streams flow in culverts through the older parts of Port Moody. With massive redevelopment now planned for this area, there is some hope that tree-shaded salmon streams could once again flow through downtown Port Moody. The chines ISMP suggests diverting Kyle Creek to run through the middle of the former sawmill site. If this site becomes new green space — as some people have called for — the flow of Kyle Creek through it could create excellent chum spawning habitat and became an attractive feature of a new addition

to Rocky Point Park. Dallas Creek has extensive forested headwaters in the chines and flows through some stillopen areas in the older residential area of Port Moody before discharging at what is now called Slaughterhouse Creek on the east side of Rocky Point Park.The upper reaches of Dallas Creek still sustain cutthroat trout and, of all the creeks in the chines, it probably offers the best opportunities for restoration. With a new community plan under development for this part of Port Moody as well as the construction work for the Evergreen Line, now is the time to develop a grand vision to create corridors of green and restore historic streams. I hope that people speak up in favour of restoring these streams. • The cities of Port Moody and Coquitlam are accepting public comments (email them to mburton@coquitlam.ca) on the chines ISMP until July 31. For more details, go to www.portmoody.ca.

PER

The water table drops, especially during dry periods, which can dangerously lower summer water flows in streams and impact tree health. Historically, engineers dealt with streams by burying them in culverts so that the water could not erode ravines or escape except at the point of discharge. Clearly, such measures eliminated all potential for fish and wildlife to thrive in a natural stream setting. We now understand that small streams along our coast provide essential habitat

for salmon and that burying streams in culverts constitutes habitat destruction, an offence under the Fisheries Act (at least it was so until the Harper government abolished this regulation last year). Thus, in recent decades, more inspired management techniques have been applied to urban development throughout the Lower Mainland. Stormwater management plans are designed not only to protect property from erosion and flooding but also to enhance or ensure stream health. Greenways complete with salmon streams also enhance community values. The draft chines ISMP recommends a number of measures to improve stream health in most of the streams flowing from them. For the most part, the upper reaches of these streams are reasonably healthy as their headwaters lie in natural forested areas. Of all these streams, only South Schoolhouse Creek, which flows through Miller Ravine and crosses St. Johns Street just downstream of the Port Moody secondary school, still remains mostly open and allows upstream passage of salmon. However, some enhancement work to protect its eroding stream banks and improve

IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter

How much is your time

worth to you?

It’s simple: A little more time leads to bigger savings.

S

ome of the true late summer champions in our gardens are the resilient, hardy upright sedums. There are two herbaceous species that are the most commonly planted today and both are reasonably hardy and drought tolerant. Sedum spectabile varieties are native to both Korea and Manchuria and are hardy to at least zone 5. Sedum telephium species were originally found across northern Europe to Siberia and are hardy to zone 2. The true beauty of these plants is their almost year round contribution to our gardens or containers. In coastal areas the new succulent-like growth appears in January and continues to add foliage colour to the garden right through to late fall and into winter. Most varieties flower in August through September, attracting butterflies and honeybees. Their colourful stalks are also great to use for indoor cut flowers. As the broccoli-like flower heads finish, they dry nicely, creating a great fall and winter look. In fact, they can be left on the plant until their new growth appears in January and February. Tall sedums also blend beautifully with ornamental grasses, heathers, late flowering perennials and colourful conifers to add a very sophisticated look to summer and fall gardens. The many new varieties, which have appeared over the past few years, come not only in a wide range of foliage colours but also with some very unique flowers. Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’, with its green leaves and pink flowers, has been the best known variety for so many years but S. ‘Brilliant’ is similar with more vibrant flower heads. Sedum ‘Neon’ is an even brighter rosy-magenta selec-

tion that simply glows in the garden. The darker foliage varieties have really captured everyone’s imagination, providing the opportunity to blend foliage colours. Sedum telephium ‘Matrona’ from Germany, with its frosty grey foliage, tidy habit and beautiful soft green flowers, has won numerous awards in Europe. We’ve grown it for years and simply love its look and performance. Some of the darkest foliage varieties are S.t.‘Purple Emperor’, ‘Postman’s Pride’ and ‘Black Jack’, with their rich dark purple-black leaves that contrast nicely with their shades of pink flowers. I love their strong, stiff stems that stand up well in the garden. It’s a little hard to find but ‘Xenox’ is another of my favourites. Its darker foliage is covered in a blue glaze, giving it a waxy grey colouration that truly stands out in a crowd. Its pink flowers further enhance this stunning plant. New white and green variegated varieties, like S. ‘Autumn Delight’ and S. ‘Autumn Charm’ with their rosy red flowers, are some of the most vibrant you can find. There are many sedum varieties in garden stores now, ready to add colour and brilliance to your late summer garden this year and for years to come.They are easy to grow, very disease resistant and pest free and they are great environmentally friendly plants. Combine them with fall grasses and late summer perennials for that ‘wow’ we all need at this time of year.

George in running for Team Canada By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News

Things are happening very quickly for Coquitlam’s Nathan George. But that should come as no surprise, as speed is the name of the game for the provincial track sensation. George won both the 200- and 400-metre events at last weekend’s B.C. Track and Field Championships in Kamloops. The double-gold performance for the Coquitlam Cheetah athlete follows on the heels of his silver-medal finish in the 400 m at the Canadian Junior Championships on July 15. “I have one strategy for all my 400s: Go out pretty hard for the first hundred and then kind of pace slightly in the second stretch and then push around the bend and try and maintain for the finish. It’s called the 4P strategy: Push, pace, position and pray,” joked George, who also com-

petes with the Trinity Western Spartans track team. That strategy allowed George to set a personal best of 47.47 seconds at the national championships in SteTherese, Que. — a mark he eclipsed with a 47.17 showing in Kamloops. In the men 18-19 200 m final in Kamloops, George finished in 21.53, edging out Cheetah teammates Chad Payne [21.98] and James Linde [22.00]. George started competing on the track at age 10, and credits the coaching he received with the Cheetahs and Centennial Secondary for his development. “I’ve always liked to run so my mom decided to bring me out to the track team and I enjoyed it a lot,” said George. His second-place performance at the national championships has earned him a spot on Team Canada for the 2013 Pan American Junior Athletics

Championships in Medellin, Colombia Aug. 23-25. “I’d like to make the final and hopefully run a personal best,” said George, whose ultimate goal is to compete in the 2016 Olympics. George wasn’t the only Cheetah to roar last weekend in Kamloops. B e n j a m i n Aye s u Attah also flashed his speed at the provincials. The Cheetah sprinter took first place in the men over-20 100 and 200 m, with Nicholas Ayin placing second in both events. Phillip Rockerbie topped the men over20 hurdles competition, winning both the 400 m and 110 m events. He finished fourth in the 100 m sprints. Hodson Harding finished third in the 400 m. Esinam Ayesu-Attah won the women 18-19 200 m and finished third in the 100 m. Liza Whitehead finished second in the women over20 100 m and third in the 200 m.

The Coquitlam S r. Adanacs close out the Western Lacrosse Association r e gu l a r s e a s on Saturday night at the Poirier Sports Centre. A pair of weekend wins gave new life to the Adanacs, who squared off with the Salmonbellies i n N e w We s t Thursday night before hosting Burnaby Saturday at 7 p.m. Coquitlam needed a win Thursday to nail down the fourth and final playoff spot. Th e A d a n a c s rallied from a 9-5 deficit to brush back the Burrards 12-9 in Maple R i d g e S u n d ay. Matthew Dinsdale and Brett Hickey each netted hat tricks, with Jeff Zywicki [one goal, five assists], D a r y l Ve l t m a n [two goals, three assists], Ryan Johnson, Travis Cornwall and Brad Richardson rounding out the scoring. Adam Shute turned aside 33 shots. Late powerplay goals from Veltman [four goals, two assists] and Zywicki helped the Adanacs edge the visiting Nanaimo Timbermen 9-8 Saturday. Hickey [two goals, five assists], Cornwall and Dinsdale also scored, while Jesse Guerin tallied six helpers. Shute made 28 saves in the win.

Tri-City trio heading to Games By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News

dan ebenal/the tri-City news

Tanner Cordick of the Port Moody Thunder dodges the check of Tri-City Bandits Darcy Cummings in West Coast Senior Lacrosse Association playoff action Sunday at the Port Coquitlam rec complex. The Bandits defeated Port Moody 9-3 Sunday to win the series 2-1 and now face the Nanaimo Timbermen in the semifinal, with the next game set for Saturday at 4:30 p.m. at Burnaby’s Bill Copeland Sports Centre.

Coquitlam teens lift Cyclones to title The Fraser Valley Cyclones knocked off the North Shore AllStars 10-0 and 9-3 at Ambleside Park in West Vancouver on Saturday to win their second consecutive Senior Little League provincial title. The team of 15- and 1 6 - y e a r- o l d s f r o m throughout the Lower Fraser Valley includes eight Coquitlam players. Coquitlam Little Leaguers Andrew Walton and Keegan Baldwin

each knocked in a pair of RBIs in the first game. C o q u i t l a m ’ s Ky l e Williamson pitched six solid innings in the championship final, giving up just one run and two walks while striking out four. “Seven of the Coquitlam players went to Nationals last year, so they know what to expect and are really hungry — they want it bad,” said manager Bruce Michael. “We are happy with the pro-

vincial championship, but we are not satisfied. We didn’t play as well today as I have seen us play, and when we play our best game we are a pretty tough squad to handle.” The Cyclones now advance to the Canadian Championships in Thunder Bay, Ont. July 31 to  Aug. 8. To help cover the costs of the trip the Cyclones are holding a fundraiser at the Townhall Public House, Friday at 6 p.m.

There’s a strong Tri-City contingent on this year’s Team B.C. women’s volleyball squad preparing for the Canada Games. Alessandra Gentile of Heritage Woods Secondary, Terry Fox’s Katie Devaney and Nicole Cornwall of Charles Best will suit up for Team B.C. at the Games which will be held Aug. 2-18 in Sherbrooke, Que. “I’m really excited. It’s an experience in itself just to go and be a part of something that big,” said Gentile, a five-foot-10 setter and right-side hitter. Gentile, who helped lead the Kodiaks to a silver medal at this year’s B.C. high school AAAA championship, will go on to play for the UBC Thunderbirds in the fall. The three have spent the past two we e k s t r a i n i n g i n Kelowna as part of the 14-member Team B.C. roster. “I’m the youngest player on the team so I’m just soaking in everything I possibly
