Fox to be added to Walk of Fame on Saturday

Port Coquitlam hero Terry Fox will be one of eight Canadians inducted into the country’s Walk of Fame tomorrow. The unveiling Saturday will happen at the corner ofYonge and Queen streets in Toronto before Rolly and Darrell Fox — Terry’s father and brother — and Doug Alward and Bill Vigars.


Alward was Terry’s best friend at PoCo high school and joined him on his Marathon of Hope in 1980; Vigars was the Canadian Cancer Society representative who promoted Terry’s epic cross-country journey to raise money for cancer research. It will be the first time in more than 30 years

that Darrell Fox, who was also part of the Marathon of Hope, Alward and Vigars have been together, according to the Terry Fox Foundation. The other 2013 Walk of Fame inductees are Bob Ezrin (music producer); Victor Garber (actor); Craig and Marc Kielburger (human



rights activists); the late Oscar Peterson (musician); Christine Sinclair (soccer captain); and Alan Thicke (actor). The 15th anniversary of the Canadian Walk of Fame awards show will air on Oct. 27 and will feature a star-studded cast, including Mike Myers, Carly Rae Jepsen and Martin Short.

CUPE deal to cost $1M Workers deserve raise after 4 years without: Hyndes By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS


A tentative provincewide deal for a two-year contract for CUPE support workers could cost School District 43 just

under $1 million a year. B u t c h a i r Melissa Hyndes says the HYNDES clerks, custodians and special education assistants deserve the raise if the deal is approved. The tentative deal an-

nounced Thursday between the BC Public School Employers’ Association and CUPE BC narrowly averted a strike that could have started as soon as Monday. The agreement provides a 1% increase effective July 1, 2013, 2% on Feb. 1, 2014 and 0.5% on May 1, 2014. The deal — which would begin retroactively on July 1, 2012 — is set to

expire on June 30, 2014. Hyndes said the district has been told it will have to find $984,000 within its budget to cover the wage increases in 2012/’14 — a stretch after $12.1 million in cuts were already made. “I can’t say it’s not going to involve more cuts next season, this is not a one-time thing,” Hyndes said. But she said the CUPE

should have received a raise after going four years with no wage hikes. “I firmly believe our employees deserve a wage increase, they’ve earned a wage increase,” she said.“The government should have funded it, though; it should not be on the backs of school districts.” see CUPE, page 3

Parents, learn to deal with social media expert will offer info on kids and social media By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News

A leading expert on childhood trauma who trains crisis response teams across North America is coming to School District 43 next week to talk about how

children are affected by social media and how to parent them through it. Kevin Cameron, who has been a consultant

and expert in traumatic incidents ranging from the Columbine school shooting to last year’s Sandy Hook massacre, will speak Thursday, Sept. 26 at Westwood Community Church. The free session runs from 7 to 9 p.m. and is the first of a series of three events being presented by School District 43, the Ministry of Education and other partners in the district’s Safe Schools

Task Force. Summit middle school principal Cindi Seddon said the presentation will be an opportunity for parents to learn more about social media and the influence it is having on young people, as well as strategies to manage it. “He’ll be speaking on parenting in the 21st century and why family is the only sure defence to protect children,” said

Seddon, an expert on bullying and a member of the Safe School’s Task Force. Some of the topics might be difficult, with Cameron speaking about strategies for supporting children that developed through his experience with high-profile suicides and violent incidents. But Seddon said his advice will help parents deal with important issues arising out of kids’

use of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat, and the internet generally. Cameron, who is a director with the Canadian Centre for Threat Assessment and Trauma Response, helped develop the Traumatic Event Systems model, on behalf of the Alberta government in the wake of the Columbine school shooting in 1999. He is

a trained marital and family therapist and registered social worker with years of experience working with highrisk children and their families. Currently, he is working with an antigang program in the Surrey School District. Westwood Community Church is located at 1294 Johnson St., Coquitlam and there is no charge to attend.

CUPE gave no concessions, says president continued from front page


Tri-City News reader James Putnam, aware of issues around bears in the community, snapped this photo during a bike ride earlier this month on the Traboulay PoCo Trail near Deboville Slough. “All of a sudden,” he wrote, “about four feet beside me was this bear staring at me from the bush. I rode by quite shocked and, as I had my camera around my neck, I stopped a safe distance away and shot this with my zoom lens. The lady running in the background just kept coming — she didn’t seem the least bit concerned. I guess some of us are getting quite used to seeing bears.”

According to CUPE BC president Mark Hancock, the deal was reached without CUPE having to make any concessions. “CUPE BC’s 27,000 education workers are vital to keeping our schools clean, safe and inclusive,” Hancock said in a statement. “I want to thank all 85,000 of our members across the province. It’s only because we held together that we were able to negotiate a fair and reasonable contract, despite demands for concessions from the government.” He also thanked the BC Teachers’ Federation for its support. Both sides have yet to ratify the deal but CUPE is recommending it to locals, which also have issues to discus in negotiations with individual school districts. Meanwhile, talks between the province and the BCTF are expected to resume in October. SD43’s Hyndes said that agreement is expected to be funded from provincial coffers, not from existing school funding.

SAR looks for those who want to help, outside Tech volunteers are also needed By Jason Roessle The Tri-CiTy News

Do you have a love of the backcountry unequalled except by your dedication to serving your community? Coquitlam Search and Rescue might have the opportunity for you. The volunteer-run organization is in the midst of a recruitment drive

and will be hosting an information session next Wednesday, Sept. 25, 7 p.m., in Coquitlam council chambers. Michael Coyle, who has been involved with SAR for more than a decade, said new volunteers are trained to do what is needed but they’ll need to already have an enthusiastic appreciation for the outdoors and good community spirit. The software engineer added that prospective members need to know

how to work within a structure and how to be a team player. “That and a whole lot of common sense,” he said with a laugh. Volunteers should also be physically fit and ideally, live in the Tri-Cities. Another important factor is daytime availability, especially being able to leave work. “[SAR] isn’t so much a spare time thing, as a ‘we need you right now,’”he added. Members train every Tuesday night and one


In order to qualify to be a Coquitlam Search and Rescue volunteer, you must: • be more than 16 years old; • able to pass a criminal record check; • have a valid B.C. driver’s licence; • have a reliable vehicle. weekend a month, and the average SAR member spends between 80 and 100 hours on basic ground search and rescue before being field certified, Coyle explained.

Additional courses in rope and avalanche rescue are offered later. New this year, SAR is asking for people who wish to work in a support role for the team, in

areas such as fundraising, administration or information technology; those roles are currently split amongst the membership. Coyle said SAR creates some unique opportunity for people interested in the IT end of things. “It’s not just your normal office kind of work,” he said. “There’s mobile communications, new radio over internet and live satellite tracking. We’re always applying technology in new and

inventive ways.” Volunteers respond to an average of 35 calls for service each year, ranging from locating lost hikers in the backcountry, to urban search and rescue for missing senior citizens, and even the odd assistance to the RCMP for evidence search. Between calls and training, SAR members donate about 300 hours of time annually. For more information visit

A 6 4 - y e a r- o l d Coquitlam man suffering from Alzheimer’s disease has been reported missing and police are hoping the public can help provide information that leads to his whereabouts. Shin Noh was reported missing from the area of Lansdowne Drive and Guildford Way Wednesday afternoon after he did not return from a walk. Cpl. Jamie Chung said Noh is in good physical health and could easily travel long distances on foot. “He is able-bodied. He could walk anywhere

Shin Noh of Coquitlam (left) was last seen on Wednesday when he went out for a walk; he has Alzheimer’s. Alexander Pavlov was last seen on Tuesday. by now,” Chung said. “Because of his medical condition, we have deemed him a high risk.” Noh is described as an Asian male, 5’6” tall with an average build; he is clean shaven and has black hair, which is greying on the sides. When he left his house, he was wearing

a green and blue plaid shirt, dark green pants and a black New York Rangers ball cap. Anyone who has seen Noh is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP immediately at 604945-1550 and quote file number 2013-27945. If you wish to remain anonymous, contact

When police arrived, the vehicle’s two occupants bolted from the car and ran into the rental house where they were parked, said Cpl. Jamie Chung, RCMP spokesperson.

The homeowner gave police permission to enter the home, and they arrested two more men and one woman, he said. Charges are pending.

R’view can have role in helping: New View Rec & mental wellness A Douglas College researcher and students in the college’s therapeutic recreation program will be studying the health and well-being of people living with mental illness. Funded by a $135,000Vancouver Foundation grant, Colleen Reid will be working on the twoyear research project with Open Door Group, which provides employment and job skills programs.The goals are to identify how people with mental health challenges experience community inclusion, health and well-being, and whether therapeutic recreation programs make a difference. As part of the project, Open Door Group clients will use cameras to document their daily living experiences. Peer researchers will then interview the clients about what the images mean to them.

of reasons that are not meeting individual’s mental health needs within our communities,” McDermott wrote. “The cost of not meeting the needs of these individuals and families is too high.” Other groups calling for more mental health services include local mayors and the Vancouver police chief.

The Port Coquitlambased New View Society, which provides housing, job skills training and recreational programs for people with mental health concerns, wants Riverview’s buildings and grounds to be reopened to provide services to people with mental health and addiction issues. In a letter, New View chair Irene McDermott said that while de-institutionalization was a welcome and essential step in the evolution of mental health services, there are gaps in community care that could be filled with new, creative programs and approaches developed in partnership with community agencies. “Gaps in service, however, exist for a variety

Turning a blind eye

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside



an a homeless shelter ever be squeaky clean, guaranteed not to offend someone? That’s a question that could be raised after the closure of a temporary church-based homeless shelter that has helped hundreds of people get off the street. Although crime wasn’t an issue, some Port Coquitlam residents and businesses near the church where it was held last year thought the shelter overstayed its welcome. Was there a way to calm people’s fears and keep the shelter running? Possibly not, police say people’s fears about homeless people in their neighbourhoods was baseless but residents didn’t like seeing strangers, possibly homeless people, on their streets and were made uncomfortable by non-criminal, but still off-putting, behaviour. The fact is homelessness exists whether or not we provide people a warm and dry place to sleep. Now that the shelter is gone, we’ll find out what the real impact of homelessness is on the community. It will still be there, rest assured, even though we turn a blind eye.

Can we keep summer going throughout the year? AS I SEE IT Chris Bryan


s a kid, I recall watching my dad swimming and floating on his back in the water. It was like an amazing magic trick. It seemed he could do it as long as he liked, just float there, gazing up at the sky. I would try and try but sink like a stone. On Labour Day, the last day of summer for many people, my wife and I were out with our boys at Crescent Beach. The day was hot, so I had a swim. The water was deliciously warm and I tried my dad’s trick. Eventually, I let go — mastering the knack of trying not to try — and felt a fantastic sensation as my head went back and my hips rose to the surface, almost of their own accord. My envy of my dad’s magic trick was justified: It felt fantastic. I could have stayed for hours. A day later, my short holiday was over and I went back to work and all that entails. We ush-

ered our oldest son to Grade 2 and the youngest into daycare. It was back to packing lunches, planning meals and signing up the kids for activities, skirting that fine line between enough “exposure”to new things and driving us all bonkers with a jammed schedule. For many of us, the first weeks of September are a time of excitement about new activities and projects but for me, there is trepidation about over-scheduling life and resenting it later. As life gets busy, carefree downtime evaporates. This past summer was one of my most enjoyable in years. The glorious stretch of sun helped, as did visits with family. A good summer can give you that sensation of floating. Life just seems so much simpler, easier than the rest of the year. The future, if your mind wanders that way, seems a quaint, imaginary place over the horizon. And when you’re on a holiday out of town, those feelings are magnified as you visit new places, enjoy the calm, the sun, the food, and wonder if it’s possible that life could always be thus.

My wife and I gave the kids a break with their grandparents and spent the August long weekend in Montreal, where we walked, cycled, meandered, and ate and drank our way around a city that seemed created for enjoying life. Residents seemed to spend their days migrating from café to bistro to bar. Patios were jammed. We also spent a little time in the Gulf Islands this summer, swimming, exploring, reading and skipping stones. Life spent barefoot. It’s at times like this that people often muse about a“big change”in life. Could I live here? they ask. Sipping a bowl of coffee at 11 a.m. on a sidewalk patio, I wondered: Wouldn’t it be great to live in Montreal all the time? How about Gulf Island living? Maybe buy a boat, a kayak? Learn to sculpt or paint? Write crime novels? Browsing the local real estate listings is a common symptom of this state of mind. For most, it’s pure fantasy, a chance to briefly inhabit another life, if only in their mind.

The rational, left brain is put into neutral. That’s the boring side that, when the time comes, is only too happy to remind us that our heads are in the clouds. That we’re seeing life through a summer lens, a time when life everywhere is different. Come back to Montreal in December, it sneers, when that sidewalk patio is buried under freshly ploughed snow. And you think the Gulf Islands are peaceful now? Try January, when it’s as quiet as an abandoned mine shaft. But, hey, we all need to float a little sometimes. And when September returns and we get back to our routines, many of us wish we could just float a little longer. Who knows? Maybe, like my dad’s trick, with a little practice, it just might be possible.

Keep church & state separate S

ure, Quebec Premier Pauline Marois’ proposed ban on religious garb and symbols is an electoral stunt. Yes, it’s a political move to solidify the support of her Parti Québécois political base: Quebec sovereigntists (who love to antagonize English Canada), post-Catholic secularists and a strong feminist presence that sees face covering more as a symbol of the subjugation of women than the love of God. So it’s political — we hate it.There goes Quebec again. But let’s not throw the baby out with the crucifix. If all we do is pile on Quebec for its intolerance, we ignore the question this legislation raises: To what degree do we accept religious expression in our public service and institutions? Perhaps our hysterical defence of religious freedom might soon redefine a blood transfusion as a procedure to be administered only if the doctor has no religious objection. There is constant secular slippage in Canada, from the government’s “Office of Religious Freedom”to Prime Minster Stephen Harper ending his speeches with“God Bless Canada.” We might be wise to reinforce our belief in the separation of church and state rather than just rant about Quebecois religious intolerance.

It’s not too much to expect Canadian public servants to make personal religious allowances in deference to the majority. Many Christian doctors perform abortions, contrary to personal religious objection. Non-religious Canadians sing“God keep our land, glorious and free.” Non-Christian Canadians celebrate Christian holidays — including the story of Jesus. Yet it seems that Quebec has hit on unassailable religious traditions that cannot possibly be expected to make similar allowances in support of our secular state. Should a public servant be able to claim the religious freedom to wear a badge that says “I am an atheist” to work? Should a public employee be allowed to cover her face at work? What about representing God and Jesus as immortal beings in a public school? A crucifix in Quebec’s national assembly? I say no to all these questions, but that’s just me. The only thing worse than Quebec’s charter initiative is our refusal to discuss what a secular public service might look like to us. We’re quick and unanimous to condemn Quebec; I wish we were as quick and unanimous to defend the separation of church and state.

Creativity, vision are key in planning for PoMo future The Editor, Re. “Second meeting needed for OCP draft discussion” (The Tri-City News, Sept. 13). “Disappointing” would be a kind description for the draft official community plan presented at last week’s Port Moody council meeting. After years of town hall meetings, design charrettes and open houses, we are little further ahead with a bold vision for Port Moody’s future with rapid transit than we were at

the outset. The conversation is centred far too much on limiting building heights and not enough on the quality of life. Newport Village and Suter Brook are the results of allowing private visioning in the past, so why are some still so preoccupied with foolishly imposing limited building heights? At this stage, I was really hoping to see a brave vision for Port Moody and not listening to what a certain proportion of

those responding to OCP questionnaires wanted. Comments from some of our elected officials referring to these questionnaires would lead me to believe that in the run-up to next year’s election, the real goal is a compromised outcome to maximize the number of votes. If this community is to make the most of the opportunities that the Evergreen Line offers — and that seems to be the main focus, which continues to neglect any eco-

nomic revitalization for the west of Port Moody — then mayor and council need to encourage exciting, high-quality urban design with more flexible development guidelines. Let’s challenge and allow the developers and architects to submit daring schemes that will accommodate future growth in compact, sustainable neighbourhoods where we can walk instead of drive to shop, work and play. John Grasty, Port Moody

Stop dumping your ‘stuff’ at Tri-City Transitions The Editor, In April, Tri-City Transitions Society partnered with SUCCESS to locate its A Chance to Choose youth employment program to the resource centre on the corner of Mary Hill Road and Kelly Avenue in Port Coquitlam. Program staff works very hard to teach young people employment skills and respect

for community, and helps them set their goals. Just about every morning when staff arrives at the resource centre, they find that someone has left a bag of clothing and other things lying outside of the Big Brothers Box rather than placing items inside. Through the evening, people walking by the location go through the bags and leave a mess

for program staff to pick up the next morning. We have had computer monitors, mattresses, bricks and other items dumped off by the locked garbage bin, which means that resources for programming get redirected to disposing of someone’s stuff. As well, someone is dumping their garbage in our garbage bins, so

by the end of the week our garbage can is full of someone else’s garbage. To add to the dumping of garbage, we have had garbage bins, hoses and sprinklers stolen. This is your community. Please help us teach youth respect for others property by respecting our facility. Carol Metz Murray, TriCity Transitions Society

Dix ‘did the right thing’: MLA continued from front page

Farnworth, who finished second in the last leadership contest after losing on the third ballot by 677 votes, said he has been talking with friends and colleagues about whether he will enter the race. “I am giving it very serious consideration,” he told The Tri-City News on Thursday, the day after Dix’s announcement. “I am talking with my colleagues and members of the party and members of the public.” He said the next NDP leader will have to be able to “capture the hearts and minds” of voters in order for the party to be successful in keeping the BC Liberals from winning a fifth mandate. Farnworth added that the caucus is supportive of Dix’s decision and that the former leader will remain an asset to the party. “I think Adrian did the right thing,” he said. “He said after the election, he would take some time out to reflect and he made his decision in the interests of the party.”


Adrian Dix (left) announced Wednesday he would step down as leader of the BC NDP next year. Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth (right) is considering whether to run for the job. If Farnworth does decide to run, he will likely have a lot of support in the Tri-Cities. On Wednesday, PoCo Mayor Greg Moore, who ran against Farnworth with the BC Liberals in 2005, posted a Facebook comment encouraging the NDP MLA to seek his party’s nomination. “I am not a NDP, BCL [BC Liberal], Cons [BC Conservative], Green or any other [provincial] party member,” he wrote. “But I hope Mike Farnworth runs for BCNDP leadership.”

Dix said Wednesday he intends to stay on as leader until next year, when party members hold a vote to replace him. He told a press conference in downtown Vancouver that the NDP’s loss to the BC Liberals in the May provincial election was his responsibility. “It has become clear to me that the best interests of our party mean that I need to step aside for a new leader who can lead us to victory in 2017,” Dix said. “It is my hope that a leadership vote can be

held by mid-2014 at the latest, though of course any final decision on timing will be made by the NDP.”

Dix said he intends to stay on as MLA for Vancouver-Kingsway and run for re-election there. The party has a convention scheduled for November, at which time his continued leadership will be considered, along with the overall direction of the party. Dix announced his intentions at a party caucus meeting before making his intentions public, and said his fellow NDP MLAs are “resolute and determined to keep the pressure on the government and hold them to account for their cynical campaign.”

Public Hearing Notice MEETING Public Hearing WHEN Tuesday, September 24, 2013 at 6:45pm WHERE Council Chambers, City Hall, 100 Newport Dr., Port Moody, B.C. SUBJECT RS3 ZONED PROPERTIES










Port Moody Council is holding a Public Hearing to consider the following proposed bylaw: Proposed Bylaw: Zoning Bylaw Amendment Bylaw No. 217, 2013, No. 2964 Location: All One-Family Residential (RS3) zoned lots city-wide which are located: on Alderside Road; in several small subdivisions in the Heritage Mountain area; and on three lots on Union Street (see maps above and to right). Purpose: To clarify that in the RS3 zone the overall maximum building height is 8.0m (26ft) and a house may be three storeys. The clarification is needed because of a previous Zoning Bylaw amendment (No. 2919) that changed the definition of “storey” so that it was no longer clear that a house in the RS3 zone could have two floor levels over a basement. The subject bylaw would uphold the existing overall maximum building height of 8.0m (26ft) while ensuring the wording is consistent with the intended interpretation and the existing built form. If you believe your property is affected by this proposed bylaw, you can attend this meeting in person, or send a submission in writing. The City accepts written submissions up to the end of the Public Hearing. If you plan on sending your feedback ahead of time, email it to or fax it to 604.469.4550 by 12 noon on Tuesday, September 24, 2013. Council will not receive any representations after the close of the Public Hearing. Review the proposed bylaw at the Development Services Department, City Hall, 100 Newport Drive, Port Moody, BC anytime between 8:30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, excluding statutory holidays.

Port Moody council will be completing its chapter-by-chapter review of the official community plan (OCP) on Monday, Sept. 23. The thorough lookthrough of the munici-

pality’s main planning document began Sept. 10 in a four-hour meeting. A new meeting date had to be found before the final Sept. 30 town hall meeting where public input will be sought. The 231-page document provides overarching guidance to development decisions throughout the city. The expected impact of the Evergreen Line in the community has influenced several sec-

tions of the OCP, with specific mentions of transit-oriented development, which is a proposal to create denser neighbourhoods within a five- to 10-minute walk of Evergreen stations. The OCP contains 17 chapters on everything from the community vision and goals and overall land use strategy, to arts and culture and heritage conservations. There are also 15 maps that explore Port

Clothing styles change from season to season. Each designers call forth their creative energy to entertain the buying public with a bevy of new wardrobe items and accessories. The Fall/Winter 2013 season is no exception. Borrowing from the past but with a nod for the future, key elements emerged during the runway shows of New York, Milan and Paris. Here’s a look ahead to what should be filling stores and closets in the next few months.


Expect to see plenty of green-hued items this fall. In addition to various shades of green, expect to see some other pops of color straight out of nature. Exotic reds, acai purple and azure blues are just a few complementary colors that are expected to mix with the fall standards of slate gray and khaki.

While fashion-forward shoppers may not see the same level of detail at mainstream stores that they could expect to find at designer boutiques, they are certain to see a sampling of some of the prints and patterns that adorned the runways. Modernized florals in earthy colors and graphic prints were some of the showcased trends. In addition, Eastern European florals and color-blocking reminiscent of Soviet heritage were commonplace. Folk-inspired florals on dresses and jackets also could be seen. Vivid colors paired with bold patterns completed these eye-catching looks.


In addition to the patterns and colors that were showcased on the runway, some designers were resurrecting some trends of the not-so-distant past. Crop-tops made many nostalgic for the early 1990s. Plaid flannel also graced some models, furthering the early 1990s look. Although skinny jeans have quite possibly taken over for men and women alike, some designers have brought back the bootcut, which is more universally flattering for a wider array of figures. A number of style trends will be on display this fall and into the winter.

Playground, park built at Dominion By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News

Po r t C o q u i t l a m ’ s Dominion Triangle has been growing by leaps and bounds, adding shopping, services, industrial warehousing and Mosaic Homes’ Fremont Blue residential community. Now, the community on the Pitt River can add one more thing: leisure space. Conwest, the original developer of the 90-acre parcel, has opened an adventure playground for older children and a tot lot for the younger set plus two acres of lawn as well as benches and picnic tables. In addition, a nature preserve — including an intertidal area for fish habitat off the Pitt River that cost nearly $10 million to create and was jointly developed over two years with the city — is now filled in with marsh plants and a highlight for walkers on the Traboulay PoCo Trail. There is even a special preserve for the protection of an eagle that has

made its home there, with a circular fence marking the eagle’s home and keeping the public and construction away from the aerie. The playground and grass commons, located behind the Fremont Blue development off the Fremont Connector between Nicola and Dominion avenues, cost $4.5 million and the entire parcel of land for the park and intertidal area was worth $30 million. But Conwest principal Tony Marinelli said he believes the requirement from the city for habitat compensation is also a legacy for the company. “It compensates for all the water courses in the Dominion Triangle, not just ours,” Marinelli said. “What impresses us more is where it [the park] is located and how it connects to residential, industrial and retail.” The playground can be accessed from Nicola Place (an extension of Nicola Avenue), where there are 28 parking stalls.

Level it, or else, says city of PoCo The building is being called an ‘eyesore’ by Port Coquitlam’s Dan scoones By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

The owner of a dilapidated house on the banks of the Pitt River is being told that if he does not demolish the building and clean up the site, the city of Port Coquitlam will intervene. A high water surge knocked the structure off its supports in January 2010 and the city has since urged the property owner, Joe Carhoun, to take action. Dan Scoones, PoCo’s manager of bylaws, told The Tri-City News the building is an eyesore and a hazard. It’s a target for vandalism, he said, and people have been seen living in the building, which has on it a donot-occupy order. It is also “at risk of another high-water surge coming down and floating it away,” he added.

The city of Port Coquitlam is telling the owner of this home to demolish the structure and clean up the site, or it will. “Who knows where it could end up? It could damage other property. It could go out into the river and sink. There is a potential for damage.” Correspondence between Carhoun and the city dates back to 2010. He told staff on several occasions that he plans to develop the area and clean up the site but no action has been taken, according to a city report. “Staff believe that the owners will not take any action to demolish the building, remove the

debris and clean up the area unless forced to do so,”stated the document. Last week, the process for declaring the structure a nuisance property began at the city’s community safety committee meeting. A hearing has been scheduled for a council meeting next month that will give the property owner an opportunity to outline his plans for the building. If council decides to move forward with the remedial order, Carhoun will have 30 days to de-

molish the building and clean up the site. Failure to comply would open the door for the city to intervene and do the work at the owner’s expense, adding the costs to his annual property tax bill. Coun. Darrell Penner, the chair of the community safety committee, said it is unfortunate that the city may have to take action. “It is disappointing to have someone who doesn’t want to clean this up,” he said. “Nobody wants the government coming in and telling them what to do but, ultimately, there has to be someone who makes these decisions.” Carhoun, the former proprietor of the Wild Duck Inn, owns the property through a company called Pitt River Marina. When The TriCity News contacted the company, a man who answered the phone did not identify himself and quickly hung up. “I’ve got to hang up,” he said.“I will be meeting with them shortly on the matter.”

‘Why I am opposed to the Kinder Morgan pipeline’ green scene Elaine Golds


In conjunction with the Raincoast Conservation Foundation, the Burke Mountain Naturalists are co-hosting an evening of film and panel discussions regarding the hazards of the proposed pipelines across B.C. this Sunday, Sept. 22 at the Evergreen Cultural Centre, 1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., with displays from various groups such as Burnaby Residents Opposed to Kinder-Morgan Expansion. Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for seniors and students. The panelists will include Ben West from Forest Ethics and Christianne Wilhelmson from the Georgia Strait Alliance.

Getting that oil is carbonintensive


he communities of Coquitlam and Burnaby as well as beautiful Burrard Inlet are facing a proposal for a massive pipeline to carry diluted bitumen from the Alberta tar sands to be shipped from the Westridge terminal in Burnaby to points overseas. While Kinder Morgan has not yet decided exactly which route the pipeline will follow through parts of Coquitlam (alternative routes are shown at www.transmountain. com), it will be a tripling of the capacity of the present pipeline, which has been operating since 1953. Soon, the National Energy Board is expected to initiate an environment assessment under rules recently made much more restrictive regarding public input. I have already decided that I oppose the construction of this pipeline. Here are some of my reasons why: My first concern is


Oil tanks on the Kinder Morgan property in Burnaby. the looming threat of global warming. If this generation does not take action to minimize it, we are being utterly irresponsible to future generations. Scientists have warned us that the nations of the world must absolutely limit carbon dioxide emissions to avoid causing no more than a further two-degree (Celsius) elevation of average temperature because anything beyond that is predicted to be catastrophic in terms of its global impacts. The amount of fossil fuel in the tar sands alone is sufficient to raise global temperature by 0.4 C so, obviously, we must leave most of it where it lies.Yet Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government in-

tends to hugely increase oil extraction from the tar sands. Because of the manner in which it is extracted, it is one of the most carbon-intensive fuels on the planet — second only to coal. If we use this fuel at all, we should be using it frugally and extract maximum value from it while minimizing its impact on climate through carboncapture. Years ago, when I attended university, I learned in Economics 101 that it was imprudent to extract natural resources simply for export. It makes far more economic sense to convert natural resources into useful products and build the skills and technologies of local industries. But the policies

of the Harper government are based on a gold rush mentality to extract crude diluted bitumen and ship it to the coasts for export without even further refining. This is no way to build a strong and stable economy in Canada. I am also worried about the risk of leaks along the pipeline. Kinder Morgan’s existing and ageing pipeline has a less than impressive record of spills. Since 1961, spills from the pipeline have amounted to more than 40,000 barrels of oil. Of this, 5455 barrels have been spilled since the company was bought by Kinder Morgan in 2005 — a 32-fold increase over the amount spilled in the previous eight years (169

barrels), when the company operating the pipeline was Trans Mountain Pipelines. Diluted bitumen is far worse to clean up than conventional oil as it is a viscous, less-refined product diluted with condensate from the gas industry. It contains carcinogenic chemicals. Rather than float, diluted bitumen has been shown to sink and contaminate waterways. It is inevitable that more spills will occur because most spills are due to human errors. In fact, it was human errors — and the most damaging one was made by Kinder Morgan staff — that were to blame for the huge spill in Burnaby in 2007 that cost millions of dollars in repairs and led to long-term evacuation of some homes.

And keep in mind that we live in an earthquakeprone area with predictions that we are long overdue for another major shaker. To export this diluted bitumen, Kinder Morgan intends to vastly expand its shipping facilities at the Westridge Terminal in Burnaby. Apparently, the proposed new terminal will stretch almost across the Inlet. As recently as 2003, we had only one oil tanker per month moving through Burrard Inlet. Now, there are 60 per year. Kinder Morgan anticipates this will increase to at least 408 per year with the new pipeline. I don’t understand how so many tankers will be able to get under the Second Narrows Bridge and navigate through the tricky cur-

rents in the narrows on a tide with two daily lows and highs — this seems like a recipe for disaster. I can’t imagine how horrible an oil spill would be in Burrard Inlet — or, for that matter, anywhere in the Salish Sea. With all that additional tanker traffic you can also count on local air quality getting a lot worse. I have little confidence in the ability of the federal government to adequately study such transport hazards or develop appropriate safety measures. While I can foresee a number of problems regarding this pipeline project, I can’t see any advantages. While jobs are touted as a benefit, the reality is there are only estimated to be 35 permanent jobs once the pipeline is built. And for Kinder Morgan to maximize its profits, it will want to create as few permanent jobs as possible. We can also expect local gasoline prices to rise as we will be competing with foreign markets.

Session for immigrants looking to connect skills to jobs Are you a newcomer to Canada? Are you interested in connecting your skills to the

Home team in the home stretch now By Jason Roessle The Tri-CiTy News

The countdown is on for a Coquitlam charitable organization to help a local family through extensive home repairs. The Home Team has been active since 2007 doing a host of renovations to help out different families and, this year, Port Moody’s Kathleen Black is the recipient. According to the Home Team, a community outreach arm of the Noons Creek Drive Cornerstone Seventh-Day Adventist Church, the work on the three-storey townhouse wraps up Sunday after beginning on Monday. Black has had a number of serious health issues and challenges since 2007. First diagnosed with the worst case of ankylosing spondylitis (a severe kind of arthritis that affects the spine) a specialist had ever seen, the mother of two and accountant has spent more than two years bed-ridden after the chemotherapy and potent medications for pain relief took their toll. Just prior to her diagnosis, Black had started large-scale renovations in her Cornell Way residence with her daughters’ help. When she fell ill, she borrowed money to finish the work but the quality of craftsmanship was inadequate. The list of repairs to be completed is long, including fixing a basically unusable upstairs bathroom, poor-efficiency furnace, old windows, improper ventilation and exposed joists in the kitchen ceiling. Pastor Stevan Mirkovich said the Black family was one of dozens nominated to receive the Home Team’s efforts. Following a long vetting, interviewing and decision-making process, Black was called in June and told the good news. The key factors were the length of time the Blacks had been living with the incomplete work combined with how hard they have been trying on their own to finish, said Mirkovich. “There have been a lot of years of uncertainty and pain, and we wanted to bring relief to a situation that’s been tense for a long time,” he said. All the labour and material for the Home Team projects are donated by businesses and organizations inside and outside of Cornerstone, Mirkovich said. • If you are able to help, call Russ McCann at 604-240-1985.

Also at the event was New WestminsterCoquitlam NDP MP Fin Donnelly, Linda Reimer, MLA for Port Moody-Coquitlam, and Mayor Mike Clay.

The ceremony at the Inlet Theatre was for the library’s Up, Up & Away program. Participants had to commit to reading at least 15 minutes a day since the start of June. Those at the event included Port Moody-Coquitlam MLA Linda Reimer, Mayor Mike Clay, Coun. Bob Elliott, Janet Phillips of the Royal Bank Financial Group, Linda Martin, library board chairperson, and board member Katherine Fraser.

Rochester Park’s future pondered Retention of trees a key issue at Rochester By Gary McKenna The TRi-CiTy News

Plans to re-vamp Rochester Park are underway at Coquitlam city hall as staff begin an internal visioning process that will determine the future look of the green space. Upgrades to the park, which sits east of Maillard middle school and was home to Rochester Pool before it was closed in 2011, have been necessary for a while, according to Mayor Richard Stewart. He told a committee of the whole meeting last week that the green space is the only one of its kind in the area

and that the city needs to do more to encourage its use. “We have no parks between Brunette and Austin,” he said. “This is the only park we have there and it is not well used.” The 10-acre park includes a grass playing field that is shared with Maillard middle and jointly owned between the city and School District 43. There is a gravel parking lot to the north of the property, next to the pool, which has not been in operation since 2011 and was decommissioned earlier this year. A city staff report said the remaining 7.5 acres is made up mostly of rough space and the riparian area around Como Creek. The document also noted that there are

several informal trails in the area. As part of the city’s visioning process, staff will do an inventory of the park, determining its topography and listing its various natural assets. The retention of trees will be a key consideration, although the report notes that several “hazardous trees” may need to be removed. The report also noted that “plans for the existing building and pool structure will be confirmed once the final conceptual design direction is determined.” Internal planning is already underway at city hall and council is expected to receive a staff report on the matter in October or November.

Weigh in with Coq. RCMP web survey Coquitlam RCMP wants to know what residents of the communities it polices think of the job Mounties are doing. Through Oct. 15, the detachment will be conducting a confidential online survey to gauge the performance of the local police and help determine upcoming projects. The information garnered from the survey will help guide the organization as it makes decisions about where to place scarce resources for the best impact. Respondents from Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Anmore, Belcarra and Kwikwetlem First Nation must be over 18 years old; the survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. To find the questionnaire, go to the Coquitlam RCMP website ( and follow the links.

Check out Coquitlam’s top historic sites YOUR HISTORY

Chloé Hemsworth


ummer is all but done but there’s still time to get the most out of your local heritage. Check out this list of the top historic sites in Coquitlam: One of the richest heritage areas in Coquitlam is Maillardville. Named after community priest Father Maillard, it is located along Brunette Avenue, just north of Ikea. In the early 1900s the Fraser Mills lumber company, situated at the end of King Edward Street along the Fraser River, recruited skilled lumber workers from Québec and Ontario. The Québécois workers brought with them their French-Canadian culture and so Maillardville, the largest French-Canadian community west of the Rockies, was born. In Maillardville, several sites can be visited in one day. First, there is Laval Square. Our Lady of Lourdes Church, the priest’s quarters and St. Anne’s Hall are found in their original locations around the square. See if you can guess which homes are also 100 years old. Self-guided tour brochures are available from Mackin House Museum or you can book a walking tour. Next, there’s Heritage Square on the corner of Brunette Avenue and King Edward Street, where you’ll find three important buildings tied to Fraser Mills. The mill manager’s residence, built in 1908, is now Place des Arts arts centre and music school. Mackin House Museum was built in 1909 for the mill sales manager and today, it is an interactive heritage house that offers tours and events. The little red 1910 Fraser Mills train station is the original building that was down by the train tracks behind Ikea. Ask staff at Mackin House for a tour of the train station and take a photo with the iconic Fraser Mills sign. (For more information or to book a tour, visit or call 604-516-6151.) Another destination in Maillardville is Mackin Park, located across the street from Heritage Square. Although not as old as the square, Mackin Park is a great heritage site for those with children.The park recently underwent renovations and now boasts a playground, spray park, skate park and French-style gardens.The washrooms even resemble a French cottage. Elsewhere in Coquitlam, there is

Riverview Hospital, located along Lougheed Highway.The 244-acre hospital lands, formerly known as Essondale, opened in 1913 and offered breakthrough mental health care: farming and fresh air to cure mental illness, among other treatments. Several original buildings are still standing and more than 1,900 significant trees are tagged in the arboretum. The grounds are closed to the public except during scheduled tours and events.Visit the Riverview Horticultural Centre Society’s website (rhcs. org) for more information. Also on the grounds is the Spark Radio Museum, dedicated to preserving radio artifacts and history. For more info visit: radiomuseum. Colony Farm, located on Colony Farm Road just off Lougheed Highway, was worked by Riverview patients and supplied food to the hospital. Today, it is a park where you can walk the trails to see the 1908 bunkhouse and 1917 farm manager’s residence, as well as spot abundant wildlife. Part of this area is also home to the Kwikwetlem First Nation reserve, established 1871. For more info, visit and Rounding off the list is Minnekhada Park and Lodge, found at the end of Oliver Road near Port Coquitlam. Built between 1934 and 1937, the lodge reflects upper-class living of the era and is open during scheduled hours.The related farmland, which is currently closed to the public, was established in 1895.The Minnekhada Park Association hosts many events at the lodge. There are also 10 kilometres of trails to hike, making it an exciting destination for nature-lovers too. Visit for schedules. If you can’t make it out to see these heritage

sites, or would like more background knowledge, books are available at Coquitlam Public Library. For more information on Coquitlam’s history, contact the Coquitlam Heritage Society at 604-516-6151 or info@

Your History is a column in which, once a month, representatives of the Tri-Cities’ three heritage groups writes about local history. Chloé Hemsworth is with Coquitlam Heritage Society.

Santa and Mrs. Claus usually make an appearance (or two) at the annual Motorcycle Christmas Toy Run, which collects toys and cash for Lower Mainland Christmas charities that help needy families. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event takes place on Sunday, Oct. 6.

Get ready for big Toy Run Ladies and gentlemen, start your enginesâ&#x20AC;Ś On Oct. 6, the British Columbia Coalition of Motorcyclists (BCCOM), in conjunction with the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, will be presenting the 35th annual Vancouver Motorcycle Christmas Toy Run. The event collects

toys and raises money to provide assistance for underprivileged families at Christmas. This is one of the most important toy-raising events in the Lower Mainland and directly supports 10 local Christmas bureaus. The ride leaves the Coquitlam Centre mall parking lot (2929 Barnet Hwy.) at 10 a.m. and pro-

ceeds to Barnet Highway from Port Moody to Burnaby, then west along Hastings Street to Vancouver, where it ends at the PNE grounds. The entry fee for riders is a new childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toy wrapped in plastic (preferably a sports or learning toy) or a monetary donation. Participants are reminded that there

are older children in need who have grown out of toys but would enjoy gifts suitable for their age. Limited commemorative pins will be available to participants. For more information, contact the BC Coalition of Motorcyclists at 604580-0111 or office@, or visit

I was lucky enough to be involved in the development of Leigh Square Community Arts Village which has introduced me to a core of creative, supportive people who have continued to enrich my life.

Copies of the relevant background information and the draft Development Variance Permit are available at the Development Services Department, City Hall, 100 Newport Drive, Port Moody, B.C. anytime between 8:30am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. If you have questions on the proposed development, please call the Development Services Department at 604.469.4540. Tim Savoie, MCIP, General Manager of Development Services

Interested in gaining volunteer experience? Port Moody Public Library is recruiting teen volunteers for its Book Buddies and Tech Cafe programs. Participants can earn school volunteer hours, meet new people and make a difference in their community. In PMPL’s Book Buddies program, teens aged 14 years and older can volunteer to be a mentor to young readers in Grades 2 to 4 and help them improve their reading skills. These teens work one-on-one with their little buddies, encouraging them to read using great books, fun literacy games and activities in a relaxed and safe group environment. At the Tech Cafe, teens 16 and older can earn volunteer hours helping adults gain confidence with a variety of technologies such as tablets, computers and eBook readers. Teens will work one-to-one with individuals in a group setting to teach basic use of these technologies and troubleshoot simple technology issues. All volunteers will receive training and learn customer service and instructional skills. Volunteer credit can be applied to high school graduation requirements, or used on a resumé. Volunteer application forms are available at the library or online at teens. The deadline for volunteer applications is Sept. 19.

A Coquitlam elementary school is emphasizing the outdoors in its education curriculum with a vision for landscaping its school playground. And last Friday, the vision began to take shape as six tall and colourful maple trees were placed in the ground next to a new adventure playground at Meadowbrook elementary school. “This is really exciting,” principal Sally Maidens-Megalli said as the 4 m high trees were lifted off a truck and placed gently in large holes dug into the ground. Two Meadowbrook students were also on hand for the planting job, Grade 4 student Ashton Clark and Grade 5 student Ethan Nicoll, before the rest of the school joined in the task and celebration. Meadowbrook offers School District 43’s only Reggio-influenced program, which encourages students to explore, question and collaborate in stimulating environments that includes the outdoors. The school has six


Meadowbrook elementary students Ethan Nicoll and Ashton Clark help shovel dirt for one of the new maple trees their school got last week to green up their adventure playground. Reggio classes (derived from the Reggio Emilia approach to education) and the hope is to create an outdoor classroom with an amphitheater cut into the hill above the playground, MaidensMegalli said. In June, the school opened an adventure playground with $50,000 in funding from the province and $29,000 in Spirit of Coquitlam funding, applied for by the school’s parent advisory council. The trees cost about $3,000, including transportation, and were paid for by FedEx Canada by a grant arranged

through Tree Canada. A FedEx official said his company is pleased to provide the trees as part of the company’s goal to green neighbourhood schools. Milan Marick said FedEx has planted 60,000 trees at 83 schools. “It’s part of our ongoing commitment to minimize our environmental impact and make a positive commitment to the communities we serve,”Marick said. Fundraising continues to raise more money for trees, shrubs and playground equipment at the Meadowbrook.

However, when buying a new single family home from Morningstar Homes, a company whose promise is to create an oasis from today’s fast-paced life, you really can sit

back and enjoy the process. “We take the guess-work out, by providing show homes that are tangible examples of what your home will be like,” says Deborah Calahan, vice-president of sales and marketing at Morningstar. “Prospective purchasers can walk through the show homes and choose which floor plan is right for them!” Morningstar prides itself on its reputation for building gorgeous homes and having great customer service. Calahan notes that “word-of-mouth is our best form of advertising”, and

has noticed a marked increase in friends and family referrals over the past five years. She often gets people inquiring about the homes who know someone who has already purchased a Morningstar home. “There’s comfort knowing that you have an endorsement from someone you know,” she says. Add that to Morningstar’s brand recognition, reinforced by having seven successfully CONTINUED INSIDE

Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain is rapidly becoming one of the most popular areas to live in the Lower Mainland. Gorgeous homes combine with amazing views and plenty of opportunities for leisure and recreation.

Taking some time out on Burke Mountain By Kerry Vital

In the northeast part of Coquitlam rises Burke Mountain, a new community of familyfriendly neighbourhoods that is perfect for people who love the great outdoors while still being connected to everyday amenities. With a park within five minutes of every home on the mountain and new homes and amenities such as schools and shopping going up every day, it comes as no surprise that Burke Mountain is rapidly becoming a very popular place to live. One of the biggest developers currently

building on Burke Mountain is Morningstar Homes. They recently started sales on their eighth project, and are one of the largest single-family home builders in the neighbourhood. Outdoor lovers will find plenty to enjoy on Burke Mountain, with its system of trails that connects everything else in the neighbourhood. This makes the area incredibly pedestrian-friendly. In fact, Coquitlam’s first green street was built on Burke Mountain, inside Morningstar’s Belmont development. You’ll also find playgrounds, parks and other outdoor spaces generously sprinkled around Burke Mountain. A community garden is also in the works, so you can exercise your green thumb. When the weather isn’t the best, you are within easy reach of shopping and dining opportunities at nearby Coquitlam Centre and the surrounding area. You’ll also find transit located here as well, making your commute just a bit easier. TransLink’s Evergreen Line is expected to open in 2016,

making it even more simple. You’re also within 30 minutes of downtown Vancouver by car, and within 40 minutes of the Vancouver International Airport. However, you may not need to leave Burke Mountain at all. Among the commercial space that is currently under construction is Meridian Crossing. Subway and 7-Eleven are already open there, with other tenants expected to open this fall. Among them are Hiraku Sushi and a dental clinic. A village centre is also in the works with coffee shops, light retail and a community centre in the plans. Burke Mountain is currently home to several schools, with more due to be built in the future. You’re also close to Douglas College’s Coquitlam campus, as well as Simon Fraser University in Burnaby. The sense of community on Burke Mountain is readily apparent. If you take a walk around, you hear children playing, neighbours chatting and birds chirping. That feeling will only continue as the area grows.

Morningstar Homes has found ‘the secret recipe’ CONTINUED FROM HOME FRONT

sold-out neighborhoods on Burke Mountain alone, which gives purchasers the added comfort and peace of mind that they are dealing with a reputable builder who stands behind the homes they sell. Already, Calahan says that buyers at Partington are telling her how happy they are with their purchase. “They’re genuinely happy with the buying experience,” she says. And they’ll be extremely happy with their new home when it’s completed later this year. Among the gorgeous features at Partington is a huge kitchen with a granite island, stainless-steel appliances and tons of room to entertain. The entire home is built in an open-plan layout, which takes advantage of every inch of space available. With three floorplans available, all around 3,800 square feet and with three or four bedrooms, there’s no shortage of space. Each comes with an unfinished basement and a large private yard with a patio or deck. Other beautiful parts of the home include a floor-to-ceiling linear fireplace, oversized windows, hardwood floors and a 19-foot vaulted ceiling. “We always make the most of our windows,” Calahan says. “This time, they’re extra big.” When you combine all of the features, every home is simply spectacular. “These homes are very well laid out,” Calahan says. “There’s a sense of grandeur here. People are noting the ‘wow’ of the house; it takes your breath away.” The grandest part of Partington is the phenomenal views available from every home. Looking out over Burke Mountain and Coquitlam, you truly feel like you’re among the clouds. Partington is perfectly located for homeowners to live the Burke Mountain lifestyle. The neighbourhood has been growing over the years and now includes schools, parks and trails. Partington opened for sale in July, and already 15 of the 45 homes have been sold. “We’re really pleased with the response,” Calahan says. Morningstar has long been setting the standard for homes in the neighbourhood, and Calahan says that continues with Partington. “We are one of the largest single-family builders here,” she says, adding “It’s a real happy balance between a planned neighbourhood and a custom home. We’ve really found the secret recipe for making the homeowners happy.” Homes at Partington start at $898,900. For more information, visit www., call 604-942-6370 or visit the sales centre at 1508 Dayton Street in Coquitlam.

Homes at Partington are spacious and open, with huge windows, above, modern kitchens, below right, and soothing master bedrooms, some with an attached sitting area, below. However, it’s the views of Coquitlam and Burke Mountain at Partington that are truly spectacular, bottom. You’ll feel an instant sense of relaxation as soon as you enter your new home.

Plant garlic now for tasty 2014 summer IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter


hile we’re planting bulbs this fall, let’s not forget one of the most important: Allium ophioscorodon. That’s garlic, by the way. Now is the very best time of the year to plant this valuable crop, even if you have only a small garden plot. If you haven’t grown garlic before, give it a try because at the end of next July, you’ll be rewarded with the most wonderful fresh garlic bulbs, ideal for your summer cooking All you need is well drained soil in a raised berm or bed. I would enrich the soil with some composted manures and because of our usually wet winters, I’d also add some dolopril lime. Always choose the largest bulbs and carefully break them into cloves that should be planted about 4 to 5 inches (10 to 12 cm) apart and 2 4 inches (5 to 10 cm) deep. Keep the soil moist if we get another dry spell. Rooting will begin within a couple of weeks. In mid to late winter, fresh green leaves will appear and they will be fine even if we get some severe cold - garlic is very hardy.


“If you haven’t grown garlic before, give it a try because at the end of next July, you’ll be rewarded with the most wonderful fresh garlic bulbs, ideal for your summer cooking.”

The TriCiTies

Make sure you keep the beds weeded because those nasty weeds will turn into millions when spring begins. Once spring arrives and the daytime temperatures are close to 8 to 10 C, feed them with something like a 10-15-19 fertilizer with micronutrients. In June the tops will form tiny flowers. These are called scapes and they should all be removed so the plant puts all its energy into building up the cloves. These scapes can be used in stir fries and for many other culinary uses. The scapes are a nice bonus when growing garlic. Fall planted garlic is usually harvested about mid-July into August of the following year. It’s important to harvest once half to two thirds of the leaves have turned yellow. Make sure you lift them carefully with a fork to avoid damaging the bulbs. They need to be cured in a warm dry spot for at least two weeks to ensure they dry out, then remove the outside layers to expose beautiful white bulbs that are ready to enjoy. As for varieties, almost everyone has their own favourite but plant the ones you enjoy most. Russian garlic is a local favourite and elephant garlic does well too, as do many other specialty varieties. So try some now as part of your winter garden.

White tests skills against world’s best PoMo soccer player takes show to Wembley By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy NeWs


Port Coquitlam Saint Ty Goff chases the ball during a tier 1 U16 field lacrosse game against the Coquitlam Adanacs on Sunday at Gates Park.

Shocking loss for the Chargers Team struggles early in bout against raiders Fo r t h e s e c o n d time in two weeks the Coquitlam Chargers stumbled out of the blocks and could not overcome the hole they dug for themselves in the early part of the game. On Sunday, the club allowed the Richmond Raiders to put up two touchdowns before the Coquitlam club could get on the board during a bantam football road game. H oweve r, t h a n k s to a strong defence, Coquitlam was able to put up a wall in the second half, limiting Richmond’s ability to move the ball forward. Both teams struggled with the elements, but only the Chargers man-


The Coquitlam Chargers have struggled early in their first two games of the bantam football season. aged to score when the weather turned ugly. “Even when conditions were good we still had some problems [generating offence] against their very strong

defence,” said Raiders offensive co-ordinator Rob Parmar. “The lateral pursuit of [Coquitlam’s] defence was exceptional. They’re very well coached.”

With the Raiders struggling to gain yards, it was the Charger’s turn to find the end zone. A fourth-quarter fumble was recovered by Coquitlam’s Darrel

Gelera, who was able to score the touchdown. But despite the late offensive surge, Coquitlam could not get back into the game. When the final buzzer sounded, Richmond was still winning 12-9. The Chargers had similar struggles early during a match against the Vancouver Trojans in the opening week of the season. Vancouver jumped out to a 22-0 lead at the half, before Coquitlam’s offence got on the board. In that match, quarterback Lucas Gill threw for three touchdowns, before Jason Tade recovered a fumble and scored a major later in the game. But despite the dramatic finish, Coquitlam lost the game 22-19 and are still looking for their first win of the season.

A Port Moody youngster has just returned from England where he tested his skills against some of the best young soccer players in the world. Nikolas White was on the Canada U12 team that finished 14th out of the 32 countries in the Danone Nations Cup that was held Sept. 4-7 in London, England. After playing to a 1-1 draw, the Canadian side fell 4-3 in penalty kicks to Spain in their final placement game. “It was really disappointing,”White said.“We were just unlucky. I think it would have been better if we lost in the game rather than losing in penalty kicks.” Canada picked up wins against Brazil 3-2 and Saudi Arabia 1-0, while playing to a draw with South Korea and Switzerland and falling 1-0 to both Mexico and Argentina. “This year’s event sparked a new energy and motivation in these young athletes; they were able to measure themselves against other talented young players from around the world in one of the greatest stadiums, Wembley,” said Dean Howie, head coach of Team Canada. “They’ll now return to their clubs with a new perspective on the game and also knowing what they are capable of achieving.” White said the tie against South Korea was one of the highlights of the tournament. “I thought we were going to lose that game


N i ko l a s W h i t e d u r i n g Danone Nations Cup final.

because they were last year’s champions but we tied it,” he said. “It was an unbelievable feeling. And beating Brazil is always a great feeling too.” White picked up three assists during the tournament and was the only member of the Canadian team to play every minute of all seven games. “I was a little bit tired after the sixth game but being in Wembley [for the game against Spain] my energy went way up.” Playing in the iconic Wembley Stadium has always been a dream for White, who got to live out that dream in front of 30,000 screaming fans. “Being in Wembley was by far the highlight of my trip,” he said. “It was awesome.” White was the only We s t e r n C a n a d i a n player selected to play for the national team, which was made up from the Eastern Canadian team that knocked off the West 3-2 earlier this summer. In addition to exposing him to some highly skilled soccer, White was also able to make a number of new friendships. “I made a ton of new friends from the Eastern Canada team as well as from the other countries,” said White, who will now join his team from the Coquitlam MetroFord High Performance League.



COQUITLAM METRO-FORD U18 HOTSPURS The Under 18 Division 1 Hotspurs, in their first league game of the season saw themselves matched against Coastal FC. Justin Arcand, a new CMF member, joining the Hotspurs for the 2013-14 season, made an immediate impact by scoring two (2) goals in his opening match leading the team to a 4-1 victory. Justin’s hard work and tenacious play is non-stop and his pace on the ball, is enjoyed by his coaches and spectators. Justin’s commitment to the Hostpurs is appreciated by the coaching staff and the coaches are hoping Justin’s continues to make an impact throughout the season. For these reasons Justin is named the Metro-Ford Co-Player of the Week.


The U16 MSL CMFSC Stompers were hoping to start their league campaign with a win to continue their good form following their previous heroics in winning the CMFSC Labour Day Tournament over the long weekend. The Burnaby U16 Metro team had other ideas and began strongly opening the scoring mid-way through the first half. With her team already 1-0 down, Makena Mills, made a critical save to tip a break away onto the post and keep The Stompers in the game. This save was the turning point of a fiercely contested match and with the scores level at half-time, the stage was set for The Stompers to score two more and bring home the win. Makena made two other vital saves to help preserve the lead. In the first few weeks, Makena’s saves in a penalty shoot-out during the Labour Day Tournament coupled with some timely diving saves at the feet of on-rushing attackers, combined with playing with a broken finger have earned Makena the right to be named Metro-Ford Co-Player of the Week.

Two goals for Ferguson leads Cats to victory


Two games into the sea s on and o ppo sing forwards have yet to find a way to solve Coquitlam Edge net minder Angela Webster. On Sunday, the goalie was able to post her second straight clean sheet, when the Edge downed the Port Moody Quicksilver 3-0 in U17 division 2 girls’ soccer action. Coquitlam jumped out to an early lead when Justyna Pomaleck’s solo run resulted in a penalty, which she calmly finished with a shot to the low post. S a m a n t h a Dougherty added a pair of quick shots that left the PoMo keeper defenseless and staked the Edge to a 3-0 halftime lead. Despite a spirited Port Moody push in the second half, Coquitlam was able to shut down the Quicksilver’s attack

and hang on for the shutout victory. The Coquitlam RedCaps came away with one point during a testy battle against SFC Pegasus in U16 division 1 boys’ soccer on Sunday. Anton Pisaryk scored the lone goal for Coquitlam in the 1-1 tie, during a match that saw the RedCaps stand up to a larger, more physical club. Tony Blazevic had a strong match on defence and with the help of keeper Alex Brown were able to hold the opposition to just one goal.


After coming off a disappointing loss in the opening game of the season, the Coqutilam TNT came out determined to win on Sunday against the Burnaby Storm in U15 girls soccer. The patient Coquitlam club played hard in a first half that saw a lot of end-to-end action and several good chances for both sides. However, it was TNT forward Kirstin Davies who broke the log jam, scoring 15 minutes into the second half with a shot outside the box. After that, it was the defence that came up strong for Coquitlam, with Nicole Chursinoff, Isabel Antunes, Olivia Dawson and goalie Alivia Ungaro keeping Burnaby off the scoreboard.
