Everyone has a say on growth Transportation a key issue in plans for Coq. growth By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Three cities that neighbour Coquitlam say they want to see the municipality get a better handle on its future traffic as it prepares its regional growth plan. Po r t M o o d y h a s asked Coquitlam to take out all references of the MurrayClarke Connector in its Strategic Transportation Plan to lessen traffic around Rocky Point Park. PoMo also wants Coquitlam to funnel commuters from the central and northern
parts of the city towards Highway 1 rather than through Moody. As well, New Westminster sent Coquitlam a letter about its designation of United Boulevard as a route for movement of goods, calling that “premature.” The contentious issue comes up as the two cities head into a dispute resolution with the provincial government over the aging bailey bridge linking United Boulevard and Braid Street. And Port Coquitlam has also voiced its concern about transportation impacts from development on Burke Mountain in northeast Coquitlam, which is slated to be home to 20,000 more people. see SEND METRO, page A5

An abnormally long stretch of dry, hot weather has Port Coquitlam Fire and Emergency Services warning the public that the Hyde Creek nature reserve is particularly vulnerable to wildfire. There is plenty of fuel to turn the smallest spark into a large blaze and the department noted that there is a lack of water supply within the park on the city’s north side. And the same can be said of the Tri-Cities many forested areas, from Port Moody’s north shore to Coquitlam’s Mundy Park.
For more information about forest fire prevention, go to bcwildfire.ca/prevention. “Once burning, a wildfire can spread quickly due to dry conditions and high winds and can cause severe environmental impact,” said Deputy Fire Chief Randy Minaker in a press release. “Wildfires can become devastating when they encroach upon homes and critical infrastructure.” see CAMP FIRES, page A4

‘We’re on life support,’ prez says of PoCo Purple women’s group By Jason Roessle The Tri-CiTy News
A 66-year-old Port Coquitlam service organization is on its deathbed unless new members are found. The Royal Purple of Canada is celebrating its 100th anniversary next year but Lodge #10 might not survive until then, said PoCo president Sally Hurst. “We’re on life support,” she said.“We’ve got to the end of the year to find new members or the national office will ask the charter to be returned.” The group is down to two active members, with a total of eight on the books, said Hurst, a Royal Purple member for 43 years and a former national president. About seven new members would stave off the chapter’s shuttering. “I would hate to see it close,”Hurst said. The Port Coquitlam women’s group has donated about $250,000 over the past 15 years to a number of causes, including the Purple and Elks’ registered charity, the Fund for Children. This fund mainly helps children with medical needs when other sources of funding don’t exist, and money is provided to programs related to hearing and speech. Bursaries for students studying audiology and speech language pathology have also bee distributed. Hurst said money has also been raised for a pre-school for deaf children, dry grads, seniors’ centres and hospital foundations. Besides the charitable

No ‘showdown’ with teachers, minister says By Tom Fletcher
“We’ve got to the end of the year to find new members or the national office will ask the charter to be returned... I would hate to see it close.”
The B.C. government is pressing ahead with its goal of reaching a 10-year agreement with public school teachers, appointing a “public administrator” to replace school trustees on the board of their provincial bargaining agency. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said the change is temporary and the BC Public FASSBENDER School Employers’ Association will continue to play an important role in talks with teachers and support staff. BCPSEA will be under the direction of Michael Marchbank, CEO of the Hospital Employers’ Association, when talks with the BC Teachers’ Federation resume in September. Fassbender’s announcement surprised school trustees around the province. He said he spoke to or left messages for trustees on the BCPSEA executive before making the announcement Wednesday inVancouver. The move is to meet a demand of the BCTF to bargain directly with the provincial government, Fassbender said. The province also intends to eliminate essential services rules that keep schools open with minimum staff during strikes. Fassbender denied the suggestion he is setting up a “showdown” with teachers that would close schools and turn the public against unions. The structural change is needed to achieve the stability for students and parents promised by Premier Christy Clark, he said. “It’s not about pitting them against us,” Fassbender said. “It’s about finding a new road map where we can achieve that goal.” A two-year contract extension and wage freeze imposed by the government on teachers expired at the end of June. Jim Iker, who took over this spring as BCTF president, told CKNW radio Thursday his union isn’t opposed to a longterm settlement as long as more resources are available to improve classroom conditions. The BCTF is returning to court this fall to seek restoration of bargaining for class size and special needs support. School support staff represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees are to resume negotiations for a new contract this month after walking away last spring because their negotiators didn’t believe BCPSEA had an adequate mandate to get a settlement. CUPE employees have not had a raise in four years.
Sally Hurst, president of the Royal Purple, Lodge #10 (right) focus of the organization, Hurst said it’s a lot of fun, helps women make friends across the country and offers unique training such as how to effectively run a meeting or keep a simple set of books. Some people still have an image of the Royal Purple of old, with purple blazers and pillbox hats. “It’s not your mother’s Royal Purple anymore,” said Hurst with a chuckle. “The regalia is optional and [meetings] are a lot less rigid than they used to be.” Meeting are held wherever the membership chooses and are done in a round-table format. “We’re trying to come into the 21st century,” said the longtime Port Coquitlam resident.

Renovation or relocation of Fox library? Future changes to rec complex are a consideration By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News
The possibility of the Terry Fox Library changing locations in the next couple of years has Port Coquitlam councillors reconsidering a proposal that would see approximately $100,000 in upgrades for the current facility. Coun. Michael Wright, the city’s representative on the Fraser Valley Regional Library Board and the body’s vice-chair, said there is a chance the library could be included in discussions surrounding changes to the PoCo recreation complex.
Tickets still available for Aug. 18 PM train trips Tickets for Port Coquitlam’s Heritage Train are sold out but there are still a few available for the Port Moody ride. The trips are part of both cities’ centennial celebrations and will give riders a taste of what travelling was like in years gone by. Port Moody will be offering hour-long trips to Mission twice on Aug. 18. The first train will leave the station at 9:30 a.m. and return by 12:30 p.m. while the second train will depart at 1:30 He cautioned that any concrete proposals are
CP Rail will be rolling out some vintage trains for trips in Port Moody and Port Coquitlam as part of the cities’ centennial celebrations on the weekend of Aug. 17 and 18. p.m. and return at 4:30 p.m. Tickets cost $30 for a one-way trip and a bus back or $60 for a still far way away but council was concerned
round-trip on the train and can be purchased at the Port Moody Station Museum (2734 with the prospect of spending $100,000 for
Murray St., next to Rocky Point Park). (PoCo’s train, which has sold out, is offering trips to Port Moody on Aug. 17.) Passengers will get to ride on the Dominion (numbered CP101) and the Ernest ‘Smoky’ Smith (CP102), named after the New Westminster-born war hero who held Britain’s highest military honour, the Victoria Cross. For more information about the Port Moody train trip, go to portmoodymuseum.org. firstname.lastname@example.org
upgrades at a facility that may only be around for a
few more years. “There are all kinds of discussions about the recreation centre and maybe possible changes there,” said Wright, who is also the vice-chair of the city’s healthy community committee. “What if the library were to be relocated there? You don’t want to spend that kind of money if it is only going to be for a couple of years.” During Monday’s finance and intergovernmental committee meeting, councillors voted in favour of referring the proposal back to the healthy community committee for further discussion. The issue will likely be taken up by council in the fall, after the August break. Upgrades needed at the current facility are
mostly cosmetic, Wright said. Carpets are old and stained and will likely need to be replaced regardless of whether the city moves forward with its full slate of library upgrades. Plans for a smaller circulation desk that would allow more room for other library activities is being considered along with a repositioning of some shelving to allow for more natural light. Wright noted that some of the shelving units need to be seismically upgraded and braced properly in order to meet current standards. He would also like to see the self-checkout machines moved into a more prominent location, a change he believes would prompt an uptick in usage. email@example.com

Dry July proves one for the record books By Tom Fletcher Black Press
Not a drop of rain was recorded at Vancouver and Victoria airports during July, the first time that has happened since Environment Canada began keeping rainfall records in 1937. Much of the rest of B.C. also had an unusually dry month, with numerous local records falling. Williams Lake airport recorded 1.6 mm of rain during the entire month, while communities in the northwest had only occasional showers. Provincial bans on all open burning including campfires took effect Thursday in the Kamloops and Coastal fire districts, covering most of southern and central B.C. The ban covers coastal areas except Haida Gwaii and the designated “fog zone” along the west coast of Vancouver Island. Fire bans apply to open fires of any size, in-
camp fires a danger continued from front page
Lightning strikes and human carelessness are the most common causes of fire and Minaker is urging the public to be cautious when they are in the Hyde Creek area. The press release noted that visitors and illegal campers could start fires through cooking and campfires. In addition, the reserve directly impinges on many sensitive sites, including the Hyde Creek rec centre, Hyde Creek Hatchery and the many housing developments that border the area. Anyone who sees a fire or any other issue should call 911. firstname.lastname@example.org
cluding those with permits, as well as industrial burning, fireworks, tiki torches and burn barrels. Camp stoves that use propane or briquettes are still allowed. The ban took effect as rain showers were forecast for many areas of B.C. The B.C. government’s wildfire management branch says light-
ning is expected over the next week in the coastal region. Provincial fire restrictions cover all private and Crown land, including parks, but not within the boundaries of local governments that have fire departments, which establish local restrictions.

Send Metro a message continued from front page The three cities’ issues came up this week as Coquitlam council considered rescinding its official community plan (OCP) and giving second and third readings to change it by incorporating the Regional Context Statement, as required by MetroVancouver. The statement, which is mandated by provincial government through Metro Vancouver for all of its 22 member municipalities, defines how local plans comply with the Regional Growth Strategy, a visioning document for the next 30 years. Member municipalities had until Monday to submit their statements to Metro Vancouver. Five cities have had their statements accepted by the board: Vancouver, Richmond, Port Coquitlam, the city of Langley and the village of Belcarra. Another six municipalities (plus the University of BC) met the July 29 deadline: Burnaby, Langley township, Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, White Rock and — shortly before midnight on Monday — Coquitlam. Delta’s statement is expected soon, said a Metro Vancouver spokesperson who also noted there are no provisions set out
COQUITLAM GROWTH PLANS
Over the next 30 years, the city envisions: • 27,200 more residents in Coquitlam Town Centre (up 29%); • 5,800 more residents in Lougheed Town Centre (up 6%); • 7,800 more residents in Burquitlam (up 8%); • 51,700 more residents outside of the socalled“urban centres”(up 56%). in the province’s Local Government Act for the six municipalities that failed to meet the deadline. On Monday, there was some drama at Coquitlam city council as it debated the merits of its statement. Council first voted 4-3 to defer its statement pending the results of a provincial referendum on TransLink funding which could be held as early as next spring or as late as the November 2014 civic elections. (Earlier Monday, during a public hearing, Joe Sulmona, a member of the TransLink northeast area transit plan advisory committee, urged council to shelve the statement until the outcome of the referendum, which he argued would affect future land use and transportation needs.) Mayor Richard Stewart then called for a short recess to speak with city managers about the legal-
ity of council’s decision before bringing the matter up for a second vote, which passed unanimously to forward the statement to Metro. The statement, which is generally consistent with Metro’s Regional Growth Strategy, looks broadly at future needs and services until 2041 for a population nearly double from today, to be accommodated in some 46,000 new homes. At Monday’s meeting, councillors said they wanted to send a clear message to Metro about their ongoing frustrations with the lack of transit funding. This fall, Coquitlam will lose bus 177 to United Boulevard; council also continues to lobby for buses to Burke Mountain. Meanwhile, Mayor Stewart said council may withhold fourth reading of the OCP amendment should Coquitlam’s trans-
portation woes not be addressed. Coquitlam has been at odds with Metro and TransLink for several years. In 2011, the city went into dispute resolution with the regional government after Coquitlam rejected the new Regional Growth Strategy, saying it was inconsistent and exerted too much control over municipalities. Currently, Metro is locked in a legal battle with Langley township to make the municipality comply with the strategy, saying the local council’s defiance of the plan threatens to set a dangerous precedent. At issue is the township’s vision for the University District, a 180-hectare area named for nearby Trinity Western University and earmarked for future institutional expansion by TWU and related development. Township council last month rezoned the land near Highway 1 and Glover Road, much of which is in the Agricultural Land Reserve, but the legal challenge by Metro aims to quash the bylaw. email@example.com — with files from Jeff Nagel, Black Press

Be careful on wet roads By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News
After a month of sunny weather and high temperatures, Coquitlam RCMP are cautioning motorists before heading out on the road after the next rainy period (perhaps as soon as today or Saturday). Const. Michelle Luca said roads can be particularly treacherous for drivers after a fresh period of rain. “During a dry spell like the one we’re in, there’s a lot of dirt and oil being ground into the pavement and set-

Police are always on the lookout for dangerous drivers and drivers should be on the lookout for hazards associated with newly wet roads if the weather changes. ting on and in vehicles every day,” she said. “That means when the rain comes back, which is inevitable, the roads will be extra slick and drivers’ visibility could
be compromised by grimy windows.” Luca recommends drivers ensure their windshield wipers are in good condition and headlights and tail-
lights are clean. Motorists should also leave extra space between themselves and the vehicle in front of them, and allow extra time to get where they’re going. “Being predictable is the best way to keep safe,” Luca said. “Whether you’re a cyclist, a driver or a pedestrian, knowing and following the rules of the road is critical. Our roads are safest when everyone knows their rights and responsibilities and looks out for their fellow road users.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Speak up on booze By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News
Should Coquitlam pubs, bars and restaurants that serve booze be able to close later? Or are their hours already too long? That’s the issue before city council as it tries to organize a framework for liquor licensing applications. In February, council stopped all new applications until it could come up with a clear and consistent policy to handle the influx of proposals from foodand liquor-primary establishments. As a result, applications from the Cactus Club and Douglas College for new liquor licences were put on hold, as were bids to change closing times by Townhall, Woody’s and Rhino’s pubs. Currently, Coquitlam has 113 food-primary licences and 24 liquor-primary licences — all of which have different opening and closing hours (almost half of food-primary businesses
• To comment on Coquitlam’s proposed liquor-licensing framework, email email@example.com. open past midnight). And this and next month, the operators of those businesses will be asked for their views on the new Coquitlam Liquor Licensing Policy to help guide council in considering new bids referred to it by the province’s Liquor Control and Licensing Branch. The city is also seeking public and RCMP feedback. Under the proposed policy: • Closing hours at liquor-primary licence establishments would be no later than 1 a.m. Sunday to Thursday, and 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. • And liquor service at food-primary licence establishments would be no later than midnight Sunday to Thursday and 1 a.m. Friday and Saturday. But council may reduce open hours depending on the location and nearby
transit service available, for example. The policy would apply to new applicants only, meaning existing restaurants and pubs that have longer hours would be exempt. As well, all businesses wanting a new licence or a change to their current licence would be required to sign a Good Neighbour Agreement. At Monday’s councilin-committee, Coun. Mae Reid said there has been an ongoing problem in Coquitlam where there is a blurring of lines between food- and liquor-primary businesses — the latter of which must adhere to more stringent rules. Many eateries act like restaurants until 8 p.m., when they effectively turn into pubs, Mayor Richard Stewart added. firstname.lastname@example.org

Car wash doesn’t wash with residents By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News
A bid, voted down two years ago by city council, to build a car wash in Maillardville got the green light this week despite area residents having the same concerns. On Monday, during a public hearing on the application for 801 Henderson Ave., neighbours told Coquitlam city council they feared extra traffic and noise from the planned car wash as well as plummeting property values. Many houses in the area are being built or renovated, and homeowners complained about a rezoning change happening as the city undergoes an update of the area plan. “You would be jumping the gun to go ahead of your own study,” a Jackson Street resident warned city council, with a Henderson Street homeowner asking, “How many times do we have to go through this application process?” But Jim Allen of Allen Concepts, which is representing the property owner Sukhjit Gill, who also has the adjacent land that’s the site of a
Centennial street banner art project
“There are lots of people who have put investments into that area.” Coun. Brent Asmundson Husky gas station, said most of the issues have been addressed since the proposal first went before council in 2011. He said the car wash hours of operation have been reduced by one hour, with the same 7 a.m. opening but a 10 p.m. instead of 11 p.m. closing; lighting has been modified; noise will be controlled; and security gates and landscaping will be installed. Allen also showed a video to council of the Husky car wash in Whistler, which he said would be similar, with closed doors. Coun. Terry O’Neill said the crux of the problem is that cars leaving the car wash would travel into a residential area. He suggested city staff look at working with Allen Concepts, before a development permit is issued, to create a U-turn on the site. Coun. Brent Asmundson said local residents
don’t want the car wash. “There are lots of people who have put investments into that area,” he said in opposing the proposal. “People have told us what they want,” Coun. Neal Nicholson said while speaking against the car wash. “I think we have to respect that and give them the neighbourhood that they’re building for themselves.” Still, other councillors argued the site has been designated in the official community plan for at least 20 years as service-commercial. And the Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan calls for a gradual transitioning of the area to commercial. Coun. Craig Hodge, who voted for the bid, asked for more traffic studies and traffic calming measures around Lougheed Highway and Bernatchey Street. email@example.com

Paying to park
PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside
■ WHAT WE THINK:
n Monday, Coquitlam city council unanimously voted to spend $3.9 million to build a covered sports facility, to open next year, on what is now a parking lot at Poirier Street and Winslow Avenue. That’s good news as it seems likely to be a well-used resource. But it highlights an ongoing inequity in how Coquitlam handles pay parking in its oldest and newest areas. Swim or work out at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex and you park for free; do the same at the City Centre Aquatic Complex and you pay. Visit an exhibit at Place des Arts and you park for free; go to the gallery or theatre at Evergreen Cultural Centre and you pay. Get a haircut or shop on Austin Avenue and you park for free; get a cutand-colour at one of the salons on Glen Drive and you pay. Given that the Evergreen Line is coming to Coquitlam Town Centre in three years, the city obviously has to take steps to keep SkyTrain commuters from clogging area streets. But considering the Coquitlam’s spotty history with pay parking — it hasn’t even paid for itself (Port Moody council, you’ve been warned) — and considering the unfair disadvantage to residents of the city’s north side, council would be well advised to try again.

School’s out but learning is still in full swing AS I SEE IT Shanna Lowes
et’s check in with the kids halfway through summer: Tents set up on trampolines? Check. Small cuts in the corner of mouths made by the sharp plastic edges of Freezies? Check. Maybe corn-rows or a bright red mohawk? Check. Summer is nearly every kid’s favourite time of year because, let’s face it, when school’s out, time slooooows riiiiiiight dooooown. But just because they aren’t in their classrooms with their teachers doesn’t mean these two months are lost time for learning. In fact, the opposite is true; in the summer, many kids have time to pursue special interests, learn from summer job experience, explore new worlds by traveling or just relax with a book on the lawn for a few hours. These and other quintessential summertime experiences offer
countless valuable learning opportunities for kids but it might just take a bit of extra effort on our part to facilitate these experiences. In the summer, kids have time to further pursue their special interests in myriad specialty programs and day camps. For example, my eight-year-old is learning to play quidditch at a Harry Potter camp in south Surrey. His love of reading is being reinforced as his imagination runs as wild as his and 11 other bodies are as they chase the quaffle while dodging bludgers. Last year was tennis camp, next year may be kayaking or cooking. Or maybe he’ll be ready to go to overnight camp and learn about forestry or sailing — I don’t know who’s more excited about that prospect, him or me. For teenagers, summer can be a great time to learn on the job, not to mention earn spending cash for that new electronic gadget or outfit. I fondly remember five summers of wrangling kids around the 40 acres of overnight camp when I was a teenager. I made many lifelong friendships and developed a

deep love for educating and teaching. Gaining leadership skills, financial planning skills and an all-around sense of responsibility is what the weeks of summer can offer to teens. Is a local teen serving you at a restaurant, pumping your gas or building your new patio? Is your neighbour’s 12-year-old free to babysit Saturday night? Why don’t you call them and find out? Finally, summer can be a time to pursue quiet and more individual passions.You may offer to dust off that old tripod and get engrossed in creating a stop-motion animation with your eager young filmmaker. Berrypicking may lead to the sweet smell of blueberry pie as cooks of various ages convene in the kitchen. I vividly remember the time my little brother built a wooden maze for our pet rat out of old wood scraps and my dad’s glue gun. With his stopwatch, he then timed the poor creature as it tried to find its way to the cheese. Kids won’t realize it but new concepts of science, math, physics and chemistry can surely
and unwittingly be discovered as projects big and small are undertaken. But summertime can also be a time for kids to curl up in a tree and enter the fantasyland of novels, be it with a hardcover or their eReader. A true love for language will be developed when reading is for pleasure instead of homework. Haven’t you ever read well into the wee hours of the morning with your book light when your parents thought you were asleep? The time to encourage our children’s inner motivation for learning is as ripe as the tomatoes growing in our gardens. What cool new things have your kids learned so far as they’ve been playing at the beach or camping with their cousins last weekend? What squirmy discoveries are hiding under a rock in the local park? Please remember that as you see the backto-school sale signs start to pop up at the local mall, summer’s really only halfway done.

FACE TO FACE: What politicians should face off in the ring (for charity, of course)?
Clark & Redford, Duffy & anyone R
emember last year’s Justin Trudeau-vs.-Patrick Brazeau boxing match for charity? Well, earlier this week, I had a conversation with organizer Rob Imbeault, who told me they’re planning to hold another political duel next spring but, as of now, they don’t have their boxers. “We’ll take suggestions,”Imbeault said. My colleague opposite and I are happy to oblige. Before I get to my main event, I think I would like to see some local flavour as the undercards. I would pay big money to watch a tilt featuring Coquitlam Coun. Lou Sekora and Mayor Richard Stewart. You’ll recall, about six weeks ago, Sekora“outed”Stewart for staying at a pricey downtown Vancouver hotel during the Federation of Canadian Municipalities convention. Stewart countered by slamming Sekora in the media. Well, these two fine gentlemen could finally settle the score. Can you picture it? Sekora, 81, would be indiscriminately launching lefts and rights while Stewart, 52, would be weaving and bobbing around the ring. It would be epic. We could call it the Soiree at Poirier. For the second card, I would love to see a battle royale between
Christy Clark and Alison Redford. Certainly, the two western premiers have made up since last year’s tiff about the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline but I get the sense that there’s still some tension there. If I were a betting man, my money would be on Clark. If we’ve learned anything over the past few months, it’s to never underestimate Christy Clark — never. Finally, I think the main event has to involve one of the most hated men in Ottawa right now: Sen. Mike Duffy. Every bout needs a villain, right? And there are probably a few people who would line up to fight him. I’m sure Prime Minister Stephen Harper would want at him for sullying the Conservative brand but I think NDP leader Thomas Mulcair would be a better opponent. Billed as Angry Tom vs. The Duff, the bout would feature the man who wants to abolish the Senate versus the man who has done so much for the abolish-the-Senate movement. And just think of the merchandising opportunities: T-shirts, bobbleheads, punching bags… And maybe Justin Trudeau can be the ring boy? Let’s get rrrrrrready to rrrrrrrumbllllle!

Good & Gregor, Clark & McPhail J
Mayor Gregor ‘Moonbeam’ Come to our Roberston.
ustin Trudeau and Sen. Patrick Brazeau set the precedent last year when they boxed for three rounds to raise $230, 000 for cancer research. So why haven’t we thought of this before? We’re always looking for new sources of revenue, and perhaps we could settle some political differences at the same time. In this spirit, I humbly suggest B.C.’s first evening of charity boxing, brought to BC Place by co-promoters the Fraser Institute and the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives: Boxapalooza 2013 — An Evening of Partisan Pugilism. The undercard begins with three rounds of boxing featuring, in the red corner, ‘Gentleman’ Jim Sinclair, the champion of the working man; and, in the teflon corner, Gordon ‘Trickle Down’ Campbell, the scourge of the public sector. Mr. Sinclair will be boxing for a raise in the minimum wage and Mr. Campbell for corporate tax cuts. Gentleman Jim, famous for peppering left jabs, is a slight favourite in this one but don’t count out Campbell. Though often cut in the later rounds, he always gets up and has a good cut man, Kevin Falcon, in his corner. Second on the card is five rounds of boxing, featuring Bill ‘Mr. Smooth’
Good of CKNW versus Vancouver
Seniors Resource Fair
Good will block anything Gregor throws out but may be frustrated by Mayor Moonbeam’s constant cycling to the left. Good will, as usual, have his entire radio station in his corner along with NPA Coun. George Affleck, whom they will all interview between rounds. And then, the main event of Boxapalooza 2013, 12 years of boxing, featuring: The challenger: That diminutive dominatrix of dogma, that persuasive pit bull of parliament, Joy ‘Death by a Thousand Cuts’ McPhail! And the champion: From Port Moody, er, Point Grey, er, Kelowna, and straight from a two-round TKO over Alison Redford, the comeback kid, the queen of charisma, that iron fist in a velvet glove, Christy ‘Remember the ’90s’ Clark! McPhail will land flurries of punches in this bout but if the champ finds out she has a teacher in the family, she may be mercilessly pummelled. This fall, leave your politics at the gate and for charitable purposes only, I agree with my colleague: Let’s get rrrrrrready to rrrrrrrumbllllle!

Note to Britain: You won’t be able to block all porn The Editor, Re. “Face to Face: Is the British anti-internet porn plan sensible and workable?” (The Tri-City News, July 26). As someone who teaches about cybercrime at SFU, this is my reaction to the columns about Britain’s proposal to block pornography. Such a move might block pornography for some completely tech illiterate people but otherwise it will fail. I wish it weren’t the case but people have a huge number of ways to access this type of content — or any content — on the internet. For ex-
ample, many people do not like Netflix Canada, so they use virtual private networks to look like they are coming from a U.S. household, effectively leaving any Canadian government, even the service provider, unable to observe their traffic. This allows them to view Netflix as if they were in the U.S. — and this is for common commercial content. You can also use free proxies, available online with one minute of searching. Or you can use The Onion Routing, again, freely available, to view whatever you want, completely anonymously Find us online at: www.tricitynews.com

and grow his own and othersâ€™ skills. Coquitlam SAR search manager Dwight Yochim said at the time that Webb had put more than half the team through its ground search and rescue training and often took new recruits under his wing. Webb was an active member of Coquitlamâ€™s mountain rescue program and was recently certified as a member of the helicopter rescue team. He was also a fixture at the BC Bike Race series, where he was the course medical manager, and was known to volunteer to provide medical training. Tributes to Webb, known as Rollie to family and friends, poured in on the Coquitlam SARâ€™s website from colleagues, volunteers and even people he helped rescue.
By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
A wooden bench commemorating Roland Webb, a Coquitlam Search and Rescue member killed in a pedestrian accident in Anmore in January, has been installed at Buntzen Lake. SAR member Michael Coyle said the team commissioned a wood carver to create a custom back rest for the bench, which was mounted on the beach on Friday. â€œThe bench will be positioned at Buntzen Lake near the dog beach where Rollie spent many hours with his kids and dog Finn,â€? said Coyle in an email. Webb, who was 37 when he died, had been an active member of the SAR group for more than 10 years. He also worked as a superintendent for emergency management for the BC Ambulance Service. Coquitlam SAR remembered Webb as a driving force behind many team projects to improve and expand its rescue capabilities, always looking to learn

Happy Monday, August 5th B.C. Day! Celebrating 155 Years
Founding of BC colony in 1858 2013 marks the 155th year in British Columbia: 155 years of cultural diversity, community strength and widespread achievement since the founding of the Crown Colony of British Columbia in1858.
On November 19,1858, the new colony’s governor, Sir James Douglas, read the ofﬁcial proclamation that cemented one of the most signiﬁcant events in B.C.’s history. Arguably, if it hadn’t been for that moment, Canada may not have extended from coast to coast and B.C. might not be the strong, vibrant, united province it is today. As the original inhabitants of B.C., Aboriginal peoples have lived here for thousands of years. In 1858 and the years following, Aboriginal

people faced great challenges to retain their heritage. Because of their perseverance and dedication to continuing the rich traditions of their ancestors, and their willingness to share these experiences, all British Columbians today can celebrate the culture of First Nations as part of what makes B.C. truly unique. There are many things to celebrate. From the contributions of Aboriginal peoples, to the stories of the pioneers who followed the gold rush and set down roots here, this is a time to honour the diversity and widespread achievements of the people who built this province, while also setting our sights on all of the opportunities that the future holds.

There’s nothing as wonderful as coming home after a long day and relaxing. The townhomes at Intergulf Development Group’s Cedar Creek North are like a breath of fresh air on Coquitlam’s master-planned community of Burke Mountain. “When you buy at Cedar Creek you can rest assured that you are getting the best-built townhomes the industry has to offer,” says Intergulf ’s Sasha Faris. “Our townhomes offer luxurious
finishes, great design and a palatable price to go along with it.” The homes at Cedar Creek are spacious and inviting, with their open floorplans and beautiful features. The kitchens are particularly gorgeous, with their stainless-steel appliances, custom-built Shaker-style wood cabinetry, natural granite countertop and island and chic glass mosaic tile backsplash. The bathrooms feature their own custom-built Shaker-style cabinetry, complemented by a natural granite countertop with a granite backsplash, vanity mirror with matching wood frame

Exceptional homes at Citadel Heights By Kerry Vital
Bluetree Homes is hitting new heights with Citadel Heights, its single-family home community in Port Coquitlam. With an established location, gorgeous homes and the peace of mind that comes with buying from a well-known developer (Bluetree comes from ParkLane Homes), there’s no better time to buy than right now.
The surrounding Citadel Heights neighbourhood is becoming a popular place to live, and these 29 homes are selling quickly. “The response to this new community has been outstanding,” says Bluetree’s General Manager, Sales and Marketing Yosh Kasahara. “We’ve already sold all of the homes in our initial release and are now pre-selling homes that will complete later this year.” Bluetree is known as your friendly neighbourhood builder, and the reputation continues with Citadel Heights. The Craftsman-style architecture and rich exterior colours combine to make for a striking picture as you arrive home. There’s definitely no shortage of curb appeal here. “Our buyers love the Craftsman-style architecture of these homes,” says Kasahara. “These homes will retain their value because they have that timeless look.”

The four- and five-bedroom floorplans range from 2,800 to 3,515 square feet. Big windows and a great room layout in some homes combine for an airy, spacious feeling that lets the natural light flow from room to room. You’ll especially love the dramatic vaulted ceilings in the master bedroom. Every home includes plenty of outdoor living space, with either decks or patios and front porches. You’ll also find a neighbourhood with mature landscaping, and established parks and schools just minutes away. The gourmet kitchens are centrally located in every home for maximum convenience. That continues with their eating nooks, breakfast bars and kitchen islands, making entertaining or a quick meal extremely easy. Buyers are able to choose between traditional shaker-style cabinetry or a modern flat-
panel style. Stainless-steel appliances are complemented by the quartz composite stone countertops, ceramic tile backsplash and sophisticated undermount cabinet lighting. Hand-set porcelain tile flooring is included in the entrance, kitchen and nook, powder room and laundry room, with elegant engineered hardwood throughout the rest of the main livings areas. The gas fireplace with its contemporary quartz composite stone surround and custom-designed mantel is sure to be a showpiece, or just the perfect place to relax. In the ensuite, you’ll find quartz composite stone countertops, a spa-like tub and shower with a decorative ceramic and glass accent and your choice of shaker-style or chic flatpanel cabinetry. Citadel Heights is perfectly situated, with shopping, dining, schools and recreation very close by. You’ll also have easy access to the rest of the Lower Mainland via Lougheed Highway or Highway 1, giving you the best of both worlds: a quiet neighbourhood within easy reach of every amenity you can imagine. “This community is unique because the surrounding neighbourhood is already established,” Kasahara says. “We know these homes won’t last long because there simply isn’t anything like this available in the market today.” Homes start at $829,900.

MARKET FRESH Karen Curtis
ugust is my favourite food month. While there is certainly much yumminess prior to August, things really ramp up this month. Corn on the cob, peaches and halibut are in season, and I couldn’t be happier as those three items are all I need for a meal. In fact, I once ate 12 cobs of corn in one sitting, and that was the meal. And speaking of meals, as always, a visit to one of the local markets will yield all that you need for a feast.The hardest part about planning a meal will be what to choose. Your local markets have grass-fed, free range beef, organic SPCA-certified chicken and sustainable seafood if you eat meat. If you’re cooking vegetarian, the list is almost endless. Stuffed peppers, zucchini or eggplant? Quiche made with local cheese and free range eggs? Salads brimming with kale, spinach and heirloom tomatoes? Or even a simple stirfry loaded with bok choy, carrots, peppers and sweet onions? The markets even have vendors that sell all the extras you need to make the meals. You will find salad dressings, seasonings and condiments. A chat with those who make these items will yield a multitude of ideas, some conventional, some surprising. For example, combining Aji, a South American condiment with a certain lemonade syrup will get you a flavourful, easy chicken marinade. And don’t forget the bread to pull the meal together. A Bread Affair has beautiful, soft, organic focaccia. Gesundheit’s schrippen buns are lovely with a meal or as a base for a market-fresh sandwich. So now that the main meal it
SUMMER VEGETABLE TIAN (from budgetbytes.com)
1 tbsp olive oil 1 medium yellow onion 1 tsp minced garlic 1 medium zucchini 1 medium yellow squash 1 medium potato 1 medium tomato 2 tbsp fresh thyme salt and pepper to taste 1 cup shredded cheese
Preheat the oven to 400 F. Finely dice the onion and mince the garlic. Sauté both in a skillet with olive oil until softened (about five minutes). While the onion and garlic are sautéing, thinly slice the rest of the vegetables. Spray the inside of an 8×8 square or round baking dish with non-stick spray. Spread the softened onion and garlic in the bottom of the dish. Place the thinly sliced vegetables in the baking dish vertically, in an alternating pattern. Sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, and thyme. Cover the dish with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil, top with cheese and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.

1 cup white flour 1 cup whole wheat flour 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda ½ tsp salt ½ cup melted butter 1 cup buttermilk 1 egg 1 tsp vanilla 1 cup pitted, chopped fresh peaches (or raspberries, blueberries)

Spoon into muffin tins lined with paper liners. Bake at 350 F 20 -25 minutes. taken care of, you can get dessert, too. Something as simple as a fresh piece of fruit can be enjoyed right out of your hand for the ultimate in fast food. If your palate is craving something more sophisticated, a tarte sucre from Chef Enrick will surely satisfy — this is my new go-to treat on market days. Even those with special dietary needs can get in on the prepared treats too. Delish Gluten Free is a regular at the local markets now. I eat their muffins and butter tarts just
because they are so good. Sometimes my head spins with the abundance. It’s getting harder and harder to shop the big chains. When I think of all that we can buy at market, and all the good we can do by buying at market, it’s a really easy choice for me to make. Won’t you join me?

Redlegs limp into playoffs By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News
Dan EbEnal/ThE Tri-CiTy nEws
Vancouver Whitecaps defender Greg Klazura gives some pointers to six-year-old Olyvia Wang of Anmore during a Whitecaps soccer camp Wednesday at Mobilio Field in Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park.
The Coquitlam Redlegs’ bats fell silent during the final stretch of the B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League. The Redlegs dropped a double-header to the visiting White Rock Jr. Tritons Saturday, going 2-5 over their final week of the regular season to finish with a record of 25-19. “We had a stretch of not really hitting the ball very well, not like we did earlier in the season, and it came back and haunted us a little bit,” said manager Bill Green. The Redlegs will have time to try and bring their bats back to life, enjoying an 11-day layoff until the playoffs begin on Thursday. Coquitlam currently sits in fifth place, but where they finish will depend on how other teams do in the final games of the season which wraps up on Sunday. “Our season finished on time, basically, and the rest of the teams have a lot of makeup games and it’s an extended type of season,” said Green. The Jr. Tritons scored twice in the seventh to take the second game

Warren Dupasquier stretches to make a play at first base during Saturday’s game against the White Rock Jr. Tritons at Mundy Park. of Saturday’s double header 2-0 after using a four-run 12th inning to win the opener 6-3. “A couple of errors in both games cost us the game but the reality of it is we didn’t hit the ball. We didn’t put any offence on the board. We got zero runs in one
game and three in the other one in 12 innings and that’s way below what we’ve been doing all year,” said Green. “That’s really the root cause of where we’re at right now. We just dropped off in our hitting right through the lineup basically.”
He said the lack of offence puts pressure on the pitching and team defence to not make any mistakes. “There has to be a balance of offence to take care of that stuff, and when it comes up short then every error becomes big and every walk and every hit that you give up becomes bigger than it really should be.” The playoffs will see teams divided into two pools of four teams, with each playing a three-game round robin and the top two teams in each pool advancing to the semifinals. l While their season may be over, a pair of Coquitlam Reds have been recognized for their B.C. Premier Baseball League achievements. Max H o l l i n g swo r t h wa s named as first-team conference all-star outfielder. Hollingsworth led the league with nine home runs, a slugging percentage of .723 and 24 extra-base hits. Curtis Taylor was named as one of the pitchers for the firstteam all-stars, earning recognition for his nohitter and being part of a Reds squad that led the league with 312 team strikeouts. firstname.lastname@example.org

Hamill signs with Canucks A pair of Tri-City hockey products have found new homes. T h e Va n c o u v e r Canucks have signed Port Coquitlam’s Zach Hamill. Hamill played his minor hockey in Port Coquitlam, before moving on to the Everett Silvertips in the Western Hockey League. Hamill is originally a draft pick of the Boston Bruins, selected eighth overall in the 2007 NHL Draft. Last year, he spent the American Hockey League season with three different teams — Hershey Bears, San
Antonio Rampage and Milwaukee Admirals — collecting a total of 44 points in 72 regular season games. He has four assists in 20 career NHL games. Meanwhile, Nick Buonassisi of Coquitlam has joined the UBC Thunderbirds hockey team. “Nick brings excellent speed and is very good on the forecheck,” said T-birds head coach Milan Dragicevic. “He has shown throughout his WHL career that he can score and produce points. An added bonus is that he
also has the ability to play either wing or centre.” In five years in the WHL with Prince George, Lethbridge and Brandon, Buonassisi played 339 regular season games, scoring 64 goals and adding 107 assists for 171 career points. “UBC is the top academic school in the country, has world-class facilities and is close to home, making it an easy decision to join the program,” said Buonassisi. “The hockey team is improving every year and I am looking forward to being part of it.”
Nyhaug finishes fifth at BMX Worlds C o q u i t l a m ’ s To ry Nyhaug rode to a fifthplace showing at the 2013 International Cycling Union BMX World Championships Sunday in Auckland, New Zealand. Nyhaug breezed through the first two rounds of the S u p e r c r o s s Wo r l d Championships by placing third and second respectively. Facing some stiff competition in the semifinals, Nyhaug finished second in the heat to move on to the finals. He turned in a time of 25.348 in the final heat of the day, just two sec-
onds behind the winner, Great Britain’s Liam Phillips.
Port Coquitlam’s Paige Taylor helped the Fraser Valley Fusion Rep-A Girls 16U Fastball team to a silver medal at the B.C. Softball Provincials in Victoria last weekend. Taylor pitched a fivehit shutout to help the Fusion past the White Rock Renegades 2-0 in the semifinals, striking out four in seven innings. A finger injury forced Taylor to leave the goldmedal game in which Fraser Valley fell to the Delta Heat 6-0.
Tri-City girls helped Team BC knock off Ontario 7-2 in Sunday’s gold-medal game in the midget division at the Female National Box Lacrosse Championships. Local athletes Nikita Bagg, Leanna Hogarth, Bianca Santucci, Harlowe Seele and Samantha Thomson were on the B.C. team. The bantam girls fell 5-2 to Ontario in the final. Erica Berg, Haley McRae, Emily Nelson, Debbie Phillips, Adrianna Santucci and Brooke Vial were the Tri-City players to earn a silver medal.

COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS 33
DEAR Parents: During the summer and fall of 2013, students in 5th and 6th grade will participate in an IRB approved study to assess physical activity levels. The purpose is to make an accurate assessment of the number of hours and minutes students are physically active. An online questionnaire, which takes 7 minutes to complete, will be available to students between August 1 and September 30, 2013 and can be viewed at www.surveymonkey.com/s/assesspa . It is voluntary, confidential, and anonymous. After the student completes the questionnaire, the window on the computer closes and all results without any identifiable markers are collected by an online data collection site and retrieved by the investigator. By participating in this study, students will be helping in the development of curriculum to promote increasing physical activity levels in children. I can be reached at 812-217-7816 or firstname.lastname@example.org for further information or clarification. Thank you. Sincerely, AS Karim; PhD (c)
