The owner of a boat docked in front of the Fraser River Discovery Centre has been found to be in contempt of court for not moving the vessel from city property. New Westminster went to B.C. Supreme Court on May 8 to get David Cobb to remove the 100-year-old Chief Skugaid. Previously, Cobb had docked the boat a little further east down the wharf, where it had been since June 2011, but was forced to move it in April after its owners went to court. City council, however, was upset Cobb was using their property and when he didn’t move it took legal action. After a court ruling upheld the city’s request, Cobb agreed to move the Skugaid off New Westminster property by June 14, but as of Monday it was still sitting in the same spot it’s occupied since April. Last Thursday, Justice Robert Jenkins ruled Cobb was in contempt of court “by continuing to trespass on the see SENTENCING, A3

The whole experience, says Emily, boosted her confidence. “I learned that there’s always someone out there to help you,” says Emily. “You’re not alone.” That puts a smile on the face of her father, Vinson. “It’s important for little girls to know they’re going through the things others are going through as well,” he says. “It’s important for them to feel that they’ll be fine.” Particularly as young girls aren’t always comfortable talking about some of their issues with their parents. “I find it easier to talk about things with my friends,” says Emily. Which is fine with Vinson. “It’s good to know she can go to her friends (with issues) and not keep them bottled up,” says the proud dad. “I’m not with her all day. As her parents, she has to know that support will always be there.” Emily knows she’s got some rocky years ahead. She’ll soon hit “double-digits,” something she’s not really looking forward to. But she says, meeting other girls from far-flung places like New York City, Missouri and Ontario facing the same issues and challenges has given her some tools to move forward with confidence. And, she has a whole bunch of new friends. “I want to remember all the girls there were really nice and kind,” says Emily. “They were always standing up for people.”

Martin said a repainting usually lasts about five years.

The 40-year-old Canada Games Pool is showing its age and needs about 60 maintenance days to revive itself for another five years worth of intense activity. The popular pool, which usually closes for a week or two each September, will be closed Aug. 12 to Oct. 4. The largest project, said assistant manager Cidalia Martin, will be the repainting of the 50-metre Olympic-sized pool tank and that means a complete draining. Martin said there

and deep ends, will be removed for repainting and cleaning as well as being inspected for safety issues. Martin said there’s a lot of algae and dirt in them. The decking of the 10-metre diving tower will also be replaced and the pool filtration pit, the facility’s most important operational piece also has crumbling cement that needs to be replaced, said Martin. The schedule will allow for the fitness area to remain open three to four weeks during the maintenance.

Martin said passes for that area have been put on hold with a $2 charge for those using it while the fitness area is open. The passes will then be reactivated once the entire facility is reopened. The passes will also be honoured at the Queensborough Community Centre. Many of the pool’s programs have been moved to outdoor pools, and the Moody Park Pool will be kept open until Sept. 9 instead of its usual closing following Labour Day. twitter.com/lonegrangerbnw

OPINION

PUBLISHED & PRINTED BY BLACK PRESS LTD. at 7438 Fraser Park Drive, Burnaby, B.C. V5J 5B9

NEWSLEADER’S VIEW:

QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

Phone addiction

LAST WEEK:

They’re called smartphones, but the way some people use them is anything but smart. A new poll that shows that 64 per cent of adults in B.C. own a smartphone also reveals, more disturbingly, that about 18 per cent of those who do consider themselves “strongly addicted to the device.” Predictably, the majority who placed themselves in that particular category describe their addiction as ‘manageable.’ It’s a rare addict, after all, who acknowledges his or her addiction – whatever it is – is galloping out of control. That all changes, of course, when the addict is faced with incontrovertible evidence – usually some severe crisis or tragedy – that calls for an immediate change in behaviour. The question is, should we, as a society, be expected to pay the price of such a crisis or tragedy? Particularly when it’s something like an accident caused by driving without due care and attention? Smartphones offer entertainment and information through a multitude of apps, and they have very practical uses in terms of communication, particularly in emergencies, that have, so far, merely scratched the surface of their potential. But it’s no news they also function as a distraction. According to the recent poll, those who describe themselves as addicted estimate they spend an average of 2.5 of their waking hours staring at their diminutive keypads and screens. If that 2.5 hours were spent in one block of time, it might be a different matter – but it’s spread throughout the day, usually while the users are multi-tasking in some way. We should all be more aware of the imminent dangers such devices present – and to make sure that we are actually controlling them – and not the other way around. —Peace Arch News

The required “labour” representation is in the person of Cindy Oliver, president of the union representing college and university instructors, and Andy Ross, ex-president of COPE 378, which represents BC Hydro employees among others. Another appointee is NDP MP Jinny Sims, a former president of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. If the party wants to further solidify its image as a lobby group for pension-subsidized government unions, it’s off to a great start. The terms of reference defy parody. In addition to unions, the panel required “more than one woman.” A sub-committee may be struck, if it has representation from “youth, women, labour, visible minority, LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual,

transgendered, questioning).” I presume the party’s lengthy antiharassment policy will be read out to begin all meetings. Once they finally get down to business, the list of election campaign details they must examine is long. In addition to that, they must review “stakeholder relations including community leaders, business, social movement, ethnic communities, environmental movement, affiliated unions and the labour movement.” One of the excuses offered by leader Adrian Dix for the party’s defeat was the loss of 40,000 jobs in the B.C. forest industry. The suggestion is that those people left for Alberta, and if they were still here, they would have voted NDP. That presumed solidarity has

never existed in the private sector, and in fact the highest-paid union workers have good reason to vote for lower taxes. To confirm B.C. and Canada’s “progressive” tax system, all they have to do is look at their pay stubs. The mandate for this review mentions not one actual public policy issue. Here’s one the committee might kick around. Having lost the 2009 election campaigning against the carbon tax, the NDP is now calling for it to be increased and extended to greenhouse gases produced by industrial process emissions. A simple example is a cement kiln, which burns fuel to reach the temperature at which the components are partially burned and cement is produced. Cement manufacturers pay carbon tax on the fuel, whether it’s natural gas or shredded tires, but not on the process.  B.C. cement makers are already pleading for relief, because the fuel-intensive process puts them at a price disadvantage with U.S. and Chinese producers.

by B.C. would only further increase imports, and potentially push B.C. firms out of business. Goodbye unionized private sector jobs. Dix’s last foray in question period before the summer legislature session adjourned was a demand for the government to order BC Ferries to build its next three ships in B.C. Leave aside the NDP’s uncritical zeal for state control, and their ill-fated experiment with aluminum fast ferries. The most likely bidder for this work is Seaspan, with shipyards in Esquimalt and North Vancouver.  Seaspan is hiring almost 2,000 people to build ships for the Royal Canadian Navy and Coast Guard. It will be flat out to get that done, and the company president can’t yet say if it has the capacity and skilled labour to bid on BC Ferries ships too. Seaspan has to operate in the real world of limited resources. So does the NDP, but it’s not clear if they can find a way out of their thicket of special interests and stale economic notions.

COMMENT

Enclave 1: 80% Sold Enclave 2: Now Released

What about New West? This evening I was driving back home to New West, coming along Highway 1. Just before approaching the new Port Mann toll bridge I noticed a green highway sign telling me the distance to Burnaby and Vancouver. Then there was a large sign— Coquitlam, next two exits On the west side of the bridge another sign showing the distance to Burnaby and Vancouver. Brunette Exit. Next Exit. Brunette Ave North Exit 28; Brunette Ave South Exit 29. There does not seem to be any mention or directive as to how a person gets to our city, New Westminster. Have we moved the city? Has Burnaby gobbled us up? As typically and regularly reported in surveys, news broadcasts, weather reports, and other type of detailed data, New Westminster does not warrant a mention. How does a visitor looking for a route and perhaps an address in New West know where to turn off based on the very poor and neglectful highway signs? I only wish the signs were true for all the heavy and extremely large and long semi trucks that thunder up and down Brunette and its continuation known as Columbia Street. Come on Transportation Minister, where is the recognition and directions? How do people exit the Trans Canada Highway to get to New Westminster? Not everybody has a GPS device in their car. Lawrence White New Westminster

Great care at rcH This past week my husband spent about four hours at Royal Columbian Hospital. My mother-in-law was being treated. I would like you to know that in a time that people do nothing but complain about wait times and the fact that they are treated so poorly at hospitals, our time from the first responders to the emergency room staff was a very good experience. Everyone was patient, understanding and took the time to talk to the family about what was going on. At one point all the staff had to leave for a trauma case. When the doctor came back (I wish I remembered his name) you

would never know he had just gone through hell trying to save a life. Even the people cleaning the floors would stop by and see if we needed anything. It was a very long night but we had a great outcome and amazing treatment from all the staff. For that I thank them. My mother-in-law is doing just great. Thank you. Karen Doyle New Westminster

tHere’s a lake at tHe NortH Pole Some people would have us believe that there is controversy around global warming. “Global warming is for dummies,” they say. “Global warming has always been happening,” they say. “The planet is getting colder,” they say. However, as you will realize by the end of this letter, they are all wrong. Thousands of scientists around the world have been investigating these phenomena for years from a large variety of different perspectives, and virtually all of the data supports the conclusion that global warming is real, that it is currently being caused by human activity, and that it will be very harmful to the human civilization to let it continue. There are a few real scientists who publicly disagree with this conclusion, but if you track the money, you will find that they are being paid to lie by the fossil fuel industry. There are also global warming deniers without any relevant expertise who claim to be experts, but why anyone would listen to them is beyond me. Anyone who actually thinks that there is any serious controversy around global warming needs to first of all check their head, and then have a look at the lake at the top of the world. That’s right. There is a lake, i.e. liquid water, at the North Pole right now. It was all over the mainstream media a few days ago, and through the magic of the Internet, you can watch it in real time. The polar regions have been perpetually frozen for thousands of years. As you can imagine, it takes an awful lot of heat to melt even a small fraction of all that ice. And yet, it has melted. Not 100 years from now. Not 50 years from now. Today.

Now, a lake at the North Pole may be shocking, but it is not damaging. However, all of the other, more subtle, less visible consequences of global warming are still going on. In other words, superstorms, droughts, wildfires, crop failures, floods, sea level rise, ocean acidification, etc., etc., are all getting worse, and they are killing people as well as causing large-scale economic damage. The global warming deniers, by deliberately spreading misinformation about one of the most serious crises to ever threaten our civilization, for reasons of personal profit or perhaps just criminal insanity, have caused us grave harm, with mass death being dangerously likely. We cannot allow this to continue. Just as we do not put a loaded gun into the paws of a monkey, we cannot allow these criminal lunatics to have any further influence on public policy.

restoriNG balaNce Re: Balancing indulgence and excess (Column, NewsLeader, July 26) Thank you Anne Hopkinson, I agree with you 100 per cent and probably many other Canadians do. We are good people, but we are wasteful and forgetting about the other side of the global human family, the poor one (inadequate food, water, medical care). Some experts say what we throw away, what we waste could feed the hungry. Wow. I love charitable organizations that are financially responsible who spend very little on administration and fundraising—one of them is chalice.ca. A total of 92.7 per cent of every dollar goes to the poor. They have been graded A+ for many years, and they have good ideas. Besides feeding the poor they give them the tools to feed themselves. I am not associated with any charity, just an ordinary Canadian who is trying to imagine going without food for a day or two and trying to waste less and help those who are in need.

Look into Club’s history The many homes of the Westminster Club and the auto industry in Downtown New Westminster are the subjects of the next walking tour being put on by A Sense of History Research Services. While the Westminster Club has been residing at the top of the Westminster building most recently, during its 123-year history it has been located in many different buildings, some of which were lost in the city’s Great Fire of 1898. Over the years, Downtown was also where several automobile-related businesses and gas stations resided. For instance, the tour will reveal where the Simon Fraser service station was and the Trapp Hardware gas station. The tour will be held Sunday, Aug. 11 starting at 3 p.m. from the corner of Columbia and Fourth streets and will take 90 minutes to two hours before ending near 10th Street. Cost is $10 (cash) and while no preregistration is necessary, more information is available by calling 604-526-6113 or email tours@senseofhistory.com.

‘Loud’ work planned The elevator at the New Westminster Public Library will be closed for repairs for several weeks starting Aug. 10, and at times the work will be “very loud,” warns the library. During the work, second floor services will be available, but for those who can’t manage the stairs, two internet computers will be made available on the main floor, and staff will retrieve any books, magazines or newspapers requested. The closure means the access to the auditorium will not be available forcing events to be moved elsewhere in the library or rescheduled. A firm date for completion of the repair work has not been determined.

Tapping passion One program that will be going ahead is Linking Passion and Inspiration, a poetry workshop that will be held Monday, Aug. 12 starting at 6:30 p.m. The workshop will delve into various types of passions and inspiration, and how emotions

The library will have two shows in conjunction with this year’s New West Cultural Crawl. Ceci Lam will display bright and colourful landscape, floral, animal and portrait paintings in the reference department on the second floor. The main floor will show the photographs entered in the library’s My New West Photo Contest. newsroom@newwestnewsleader.com

Hi! My name is Julianne and I’m 14 years old. My hobbies include reading, badminton, flute and crafts. I have been delivering newspapers since September 2012, rain or shine. I enjoy my job because I can exercise by climbing up hills and walking up stairs. I live in a beautiful neighborhood so I have the pleasure of enjoying the peace and serenity while I deliver newspapers. This job has taught me to be diligent despite any circumstances. I hope to serve the Burnaby Newsleader for a long period of time. Thank you for nominating me as “Carrier of the Week”!

Metro to jack utility fees 23 per cent over five years Drinking water, sewer projects drive regional costs up Jeff Nagel Black Press

Sharply rising costs to upgrade Metro Vancouver’s sewer and water system will translate into steadily rising utility fees for the region’s residents. A new five-year forecast tabled by the regional district shows overall regional levies are expected to climb 23 per cent by 2018, costing the average household nearly $100 more than today. The average $725,000 home that paid $418 for regional utilities this year will see that rise to $430 next year – a 2.9 per cent increase – and a projected $516 by 2018. “It’s a little bit disturbing,” White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin said of the nearly 25 per cent increase in utility fees over five years, adding that’s far more than the rate of increase of property taxes from most local cities. Regional water servicing costs are slated to rise from $147 per average household now to $152 in 2014 and reach $189 by 2018, reflecting increases of around eight per cent in the next four years. Cost drivers include the new SeymourCapilano Filtration Project, adding ultraviolet drinking water disinfection to the Coquitlam source and building new tunnels beneath the Fraser River to carry drinking water to Surrey. The sewage system –

where rising federal standards are forcing Metro to rebuild two treatment plants – is pushing sewer levy hikes from $171 now to $216 by 2018. The sewage cost projection is considered tentative because regional district officials don’t yet know how much of the $1.7-billion-plus price tag for new treatment plants might come from senior governments. And the regional board is also contemplating changing the formula that apportions sewage upgrade costs across the region – as a result the actual household impact could vary wildly depending on each city’s share. Although Metro Vancouver has forecast soaring garbage tipping fees – rising from $107

per tonne now to $150 and beyond in the coming years as it builds a new waste-to-energy plant – that’s not expected to bite as deeply at the household level. The solid waste levy is projected to translate into an increase from $60 per household now to $66 by 2018. That’s because organic waste collection and other recycling gains are expected to mean households generally will produce less garbage that incurs tipping fees in the years ahead. The levy for the main regional district budget – which mostly goes to run Metro regional parks and to pay for planning and administration costs – is projected to rise slightly from $40 per household to $45 by 2018.

This project will allow a meaningful dialogue of current activities and potential activities as they relate to economic development. The lower Fraser River handles a significant part of waterborne shipments through the west coast of British Columbia and Canada. As a part of the assessment of the economic significance of the river we will estimate the aggregate economic impact of shipments through the river and their importance to the provincial and national economy. The scope of this analysis looks at the direct, indirect and induced effects

Through this event we will elevate the awareness of the Fraser River as Canada’s most economically significant waterway, and reinforce that it should receive funding, at a minimum, on par with the St. Lawrence River’s level of funding. Moderated by Stephen Bruyneel, Chair of the Fraser River Discovery Centre the event will be hosting panel presentations on the Current State of the Fraser River, Opportunities on the Fraser River and Challenges on the Fraser River.

Making the pitch for baseball Andy Dunn can make a Vancouver Canadian fan out of anyone Martha Perkins black Press

Andy Dunn is the perfect Mr. Baseball. More Norman Rockwell than Mark McGwire, the president of the Vancouver Canadians has a charming afternoon-at-theballpark personality. He’s even kept enough of his sun-filled southern accent to evoke a Field of Dreams belief that life can’t get much better than sitting in the bleachers at Nat Bailey Stadium. He wants men and women, young and old, neophyte and addict, to want to watch a game. He talks as enthusiastically about the $1 A&W root beer floats on Sundays as he does about the team’s league championships. Heck — and he probably would say “heck” —, this is the man who’s introducing yoga classes at baseball games. But as much as he wants everyone to fall in love with

baseball as much as he has, don’t think he doesn’t have a highly competitive streak. He just believes that baseball isn’t only about the game. Baseball is nostalgia, a game that lives as much in our collective cultural memory as it does in our present-day lives, whether we are fans or not. Watching a ball game at Nat Bailey Stadium is about families spending time together. It’s about having an affordable and fun outing. It’s about appealing to both the diehard baseball fan who loves that the Canadians are affiliated with the Toronto Blue Jays and the person who has never watched a professional game before. “There are tons of reasons to come to the ball park and one of the least of them is to see who wins or loses,” he says. Over a healthy salmon lunch at West on South Granville, he’s surprisingly philosophical both about the game and how he came to be in Vancouver as the head (and partner) of Canada’s only

‘There are tons of reasons to come to the ball park and one of the least of them is to see who wins or loses,’ says Andy Dunn, president of the Vancouver Canadians.

official major league farm team. “Sports changed my life,” he says. One of four brothers, he’d have had “zero chance of a post-graduate degree” if he hadn’t been offered an athletic scholarship. Born in Georgia, where football is a religion, his family moved to Florida when he was five. He played football and baseball

as a teenager but, when accepting an athletics scholarship to study sports management at Western Carolina University, he opted for the baseball team. “To me, it’s like watching an opera every night,” he says. “I love that there’s so much going on underneath a very quiet, peaceful activity.” By 2008 he’d reached a point in

his life — former executive with the Florida Marlins, Montreal Expos and Washington Capitals; Sporting News Minor League Executive of the Year and twotime winner of Florida State League Executive of the Year — when he realized success didn’t equal happiness. That’s when he was lured to the city by the team’s enthusiastic new owners, Jeff Mooney and Jake Kerr. The Vancouver Canadians might be a minor league team but they’re in a city with major love for the game and that’s what counts most for him. “I want to be with people I like, and trust,” he says. “If you find someplace you have happiness, hang onto it.” Vancouver is that place. And he’s Vancouver’s man when it comes to upping the game on the field and off. “We want to be your team,” he says. “We want to grow this community a baseball team they can be proud of.”

Delta Mayor Lois Jackson faces an uphill battle convincing other regional politicians of the need to replace the George Massey Tunnel. Jackson last year persuaded the province to start studying options for a new crossing of the Fraser River to relieve congestion on Highway 99 through Delta. But several other members of Metro Vancouver’s transportation committee questioned the justification for the project July 23. “You can’t build your way out of congestion,” said Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie, who instead supports more investment in transit buses along Highway 99. “The real answer is to take vehicles off that corridor.” Brodie is concerned traffic jams will merely move into Richmond if a new six-lane 10:27:03 AM bridge is built to replace the tunnel. He also favours longer hours of operation at Port Metro Vancouver terminals so that trucks can haul cargo at night when there’s little traffic on the roads. Jackson supports that aim but insists the 55-year-old tunnel desperately needs to be replaced. “I am disappointed to hear those statements,” she said, adding Delta has watched while the Golden Ears and Port Mann bridges were built, the Canada Line was completed

Delta Mayor Lois Jackson says she’d be willing to accept tolls on a Massey Tunnel replacement,but they’d also have to apply to the Alex Fraser and Pattullo bridges.

and Evergreen Line work started. “I don’t know where the fairness is there,” Jackson said. “We’re going to have to go out and sell our message again.” Jackson said she’s willing to accept tolls on a Massey tunnel replacement but said they should be “far less” than the $3 for the Port Mann, suggesting $1 or $1.50 would be appropriate. She said tolls on a new Deas crossing would have to also apply on the Alex Fraser and Pattullo Bridges to avoid overwhelming congestion at those bridges if they were left as the only remaining free crossings of the Fraser River within Metro. “We’ve seen what’s happened on the Alex Fraser because of the two other toll bridges,” Jackson said. “We’re getting the overflow from the other areas where people don’t want to pay tolls.” Nor would she stop there. “I think they should all be tolled, whether it’s the Lions Gate or Second Narrows or whatever,” she added.

Richard Walton, chair of the regional mayors’ council, said he prefers distance-based road pricing, adding tolling specific bridges isn’t a fair way to raise money. He said the provincial government’s sudden decision to make the Massey Tunnel replacement a priority has sparked concern in Vancouver and Surrey that rapid transit extensions could end up taking a back seat to a new billiondollar bridge. He was asked if a promised referendum on transit funding might also include the replacement of the tunnel and Pattullo Bridge so motorists who don’t use transit might have more reason to vote for a package triggering higher taxes or tolls. He said residents in various suburbs won’t vote ‘Yes’ in a referendum unless they see a local benefit. “If you’re going to go the referendum route, you want a basket of goods, where there’s clearly something in it for the people who are going to continue to drive in cars.”

Swarming ants join list of alien invaders Hogweed, knotweed remain major targets for weed eradicators Jeff Nagel Black Press

While plants like Japanese knotweed and giant hogweed continue to menace the Lower Mainland, European fire ants that swarm and sting people and pets are a growing cause for concern among invasive species watchers. Jennifer Grenz, development and projects manager for the Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver, said the dangerous ants arrived more than a year ago and have been found multiplying across the region at sites in Burnaby, Vancouver, Richmond, the District of North Vancouver and Chilliwack, as well as Victoria. “The ants can sting you and they swarm very quickly when they detect any ground movement,” Grenz said. “It’s not just one ant – you’re swarmed so there are going to be many ants on you.” They’ve caused significant reactions in some people, Grenz said. Dogs and horses can also be attacked by legions of the small red ants, which are hard to distinguish from the many other ant species found in B.C. “It’s really their behaviour which is the defining characteristic,” she said. “This is the latest public safety concern for us.” The council’s website, www. greNz iscmv.ca, explains how to collect a sample of suspect ants and send it for free identification by B.C.’s agriculture ministry. Grenz said residents have found themselves battling huge numbers of the ants because there are often multiple nests in close proximity – up to five or six in a single square metre of soil. She suspects fire ants are being trucked around the region in contaminated soil that gets dumped at one site and used as fill or landscaping soil somewhere else. They’re thought to have arrived in potted garden plants from Europe. Grenz advises homeowners to carefully check any new garden plants, compost or top soil for ants before adding it. European fire ants have formed more aggressive colonies in Canada than in their native Europe, according to a report of B.C.’s Inter-Ministry Invasive Species Working Group. It says they have potential to spread inland to Hope and throughout the B.C. coast as far north as Prince Rupert and warns they can make yards “unusuable” for children and pets. Meanwhile, weed control crews and volunteers are in high gear trying to eradicate giant hogweed. The 15-foot towering plant is entering its flowering and seeding phase and Grenz said stopping the 100,000 seeds per plant from reaching the ground is critical to battling the spread. The sap of the giant hogweed contains a phytophototoxin that can cause painful recurring third-degree burns on the skin for up to 10 years after exposure. Japanese knotweed, an imported shrub that can grow right through concrete foundations and roads, is more of an economic threat. Grenz said several road and other infrastructure projects this year were delayed to allow knotweed treatment first.

Salmonbellies ousted again Grant Granger

ggranger@newwestnewsleader.com

A win and they were in, but instead the New Westminster Salmonbellies are out of the Western Lacrosse Association playoffs for the second consecutive year. The Coquitlam Adanacs edged the ’Bellies 7-6 at Queen’s Park Arena last Thursday to nab the fourth and final playoff spot and leaving New Westminster absent from the post-season party yet again with a 7-10-1 record. The Salmonbellies had set themselves up nicely the previous evening by downing the firstplace Langley Thunder, who also happen to be the defending WLA champions, 9-6 in the Fraser Valley city. “It was kind of a roller coaster ride for two weeks that we thought we were setting ourselves up for getting into the playoffs and we didn’t execute in the last game, and that was a reflection of the way the season went, we were a Jekyll and Hyde team,” said Salmonbellies president Dan Richardson, who along with his staff will take a couple of weeks before making any decisions about 2014. “We’re certainly, very, very happy with our coaching staff and our young players. There were games we had nine rookies in the lineup and I felt that especially Logan Schuss, Keegan Bal and Jeff Cornwall our future bodes well with kids like that.” Richardson also praised young goaltender Neil Tyacke who was thrown into the starting role when Tyler Richards decided he wasn’t up to

playing the rest of the season. “[Tyacke] gave them opportunities to win games that we didn’t take advantage of and it left us no wriggle room at the end,” said Richardson. “It was disappointing losing a to a team that we felt we should beat.” Richardson added he felt bad for the fans and the alumni because the expectation is not only for the Salmonbellies to make the playoffs but compete for the league title. Before missing the playoffs last year with a 9-9 record, New West had finished either first or second for six years in a row. Although he wasn’t happy with himself, Richardson has no plans to step down. His fate will ultimately be up to the club’s board of directors. Against Coquitlam, New West held a 4-2 lead midway through the second period before surrendering two goals in the last minute for a 4-4 tie. The A’s kept rolling with the first two goals of the third period and held on despite being outshot 47-35 by the ’Bellies. Ilija Gajic scored twice and assisted on another. New West’s top scorer, Jordan McBride (31-3263) was held scoreless despite taking five shots. Schuss, who took 10 shots Thursday with only one goal to show for it, tied for 11th with 29 goals and 56 points in 12 games. Coquitlam (9-8-1) will play Langley (11-5-2) in one best-of-seven semifinal series while the other will feature second-place Victoria Shamrocks (117-0) battling the Burnaby Lakers (10-8-0).
