A temp. shelter possible in PoCo in Jan.

Something is fishy in the Tri-Cities

By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A temporary homeless shelter could be coming back to Grace Church in Port Coquitlam but would only operate for a month under strict conditions, according to a city staff report. If PoCo council approves the initiative, the shelter would open in January in a method similar to the operation of the former cold/wet weather mat program, which ran in the TriCities between 2007 and 2012. “The experience under the old model with the city was very good,” said Coun. Brad West, chair of the city’s smart growth committee. “We didn’t hear any issues. It was only when we moved away from the bus-in model that the issues arose.” JACK PICKELL PHOTO

The great outdoors is never far away in the Tri-Cities. This photo snapped in a stream off Cedar Drive in Port Coquitlam captured a bear chowing down on a spawning salmon.

‘The most fun time of the whole year...’ Volunteers take fish to make fish By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Every Saturday in November, an autumn ritual will take place in a rushing creek next to Coast Meridian Road in Port Coquitlam. While many people

are enjoying a quiet coffee with friends or the morning paper, or driving children to soccer games, a group of men armed with fish nets and wearing hip waders will splash into Hyde Creek, taking care not to slip on slimy stones. They’ll set up a seine net and, just as the coho and chum salmon are about to meander farther

up the creek to spawn, the volunteers will snatch up a few of the wriggling creatures and deposit them in a tub. To bystanders, it probably looks like fish wrestling, but for volunteers like Shane Peachman, a veteran of the annual fish take, the job of scooping up the pairs of male and female chum and coho is a task nec-

essary to ensure healthy, vibrant salmon runs in Hyde Creek for years to come. What’s more, says Peachman, the job, although wet, smelly and messy, is also enjoyable. “It’s the most fun time of the whole year,” he said. “The rest of the time, you’re babysitting.” see ‘IT LOOKS’, page A3

Transit expansion essential, say experts By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

JEAN PEACHMAN/HYDE CREEK WATERSHED SOCIETY

Hyde Creek Watershed Society volunteers use nets to capture fish to ensure healthy salmon runs in the future.

Speaker after speaker at a regional transportation conference last Thursday called for a massive expansion of transit in Metro Vancouver and urged the province to provide the leadership to ensure it happens. see FEARS ABOUT, page A6

JEAN PEACHMAN/HYDE CREEK WATERSHED SOCIETY

Volunteers with Port Coquitlam’s Hyde Creek Watershed Society use seine nets to trap and take male and female salmon on Saturday. They’ll be used as brood stock so several thousand salmon eggs can be fertilized.

‘It looks like a good run’: Peachman continued from front page

Peachman and the other members of the Hyde Creek Watershed Society will do this job every Saturday for the next several weeks so they have enough brood stock to be able to collect and fertilize several thousand eggs, using the milt from the male brood stock. They’ll raise the fish over several months at the fish hatchery before depositing them back in the creek so they make their way out to the ocean — and, eventually, back to Hyde Creek to spawn. This past Sunday, when the day was clear and cold, volunteers were excited by what they saw: fish, and plenty of them. And not only chum, which is normal for this time of year, but several prized coho, too, which is early for this species. “It’s usually chum after Thanksgiving,” Peachman said, noting the creek at that time

When the rain did finally arrive, with last weekend’s deluge, the fish swarmed the creek, Peachman said, and volunteers were astounded by what they saw. They easily collected enough brood stock for that week’s take: five female chum and seven males, and five female coho salmon and seven

male salmon. “I’m pulling them out, ‘Wow, another coho. Look at that beautiful fish,’” said Peachman, recalling the experience. “The guys got awful excited. “It looks like a good run in both coho and chum,”Peachman said. Not all of the female fish were ready but if sheer numbers tell any story, it’s that the efforts of the last few years have paid off, and there will be more fish returning to Hyde Creek for the annual fish take next year. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

That facility is not expected to open until at least 2015, meaning more temporary solutions will be required next year.

More are willing to pay By Janis Warren

PROMO ELECTIONS: HODGE

The Tri-CiTy News

More Coquitlam homeowners are willing to pay extra property taxes than see city services cut, according to a poll released this week. The Ipsos Reid telephone survey of 400 residents shows 48% of respondents approved of having higher municipal taxes for enhanced or expanded city services. That compares with 41% who want to cut city programs to maintain or reduce the taxation level. The gap is significant as last year’s poll indicated Coquitlam residents were split on the issue, at 43% each. The annual study, which was commissioned by the city conducted in September and unveiled at Monday’s council meeting, is typically used as a resource as council heads into budget talks. Deliberations for the 2014 financial plan are due to start next week. Meanwhile, the survey also revealed 98% of respondents have a high satisfaction level with their quality of life in Coquitlam — one point higher than in other Lower Mainland municipalities that undertake the Ipsos Reid poll, and two points higher than

Big signs should be posted at key Coquitlam intersections before voters head to the polls, a city councillor suggested this week. Coun. Craig Hodge told council-in-committee on Monday he was disappointed with last month’s turnout of 9.23% for the byelection to replace Linda Reimer and Selina Robinson. Further, Hodge said he was especially dumbfounded some residents didn’t know a byelection was happening on Oct. 26 — a sentiment also expressed by candidates on the campaign trail. Hodge said he would like to see city council change its policy to allow for lawn signs to go up earlier than 10 days before the election — advance voting starts two weeks prior — and for the city to install large signs at six major locations as a reminder about the upcoming election. The next municipal election is Nov. 15, 2014. City manager Peter Steblin said the city clerk’s office is now compiling a report to review how the byelection went.

$1.59M MORE FROM CASINO

The city of Coquitlam will soon reach the $100-million mark as host of the Boulevard Casino. Last week, the provincial government paid the municipality its 10% of net proceeds from the gambling venue for the period of July to September — a total of $1.59 million.The payout is about $100,000 down from the previous quarter. Boulevard Casino — which will be rebranding itself as Hard Rock CasinoVancouver in December — has pulled in more than $92 million for the city since the United Boulevard facility opened in 2002. In turn, the city spends the revenue on major capital programs and projects for non-profit groups. The next round of casino grants for community organizations is expected to be doled out by city council early next year. the B.C. norm. Asked why their quality of life has improved

over the past five years, residents reported: improved transportation

and roads (21%); improved/renovated recreation facilities (11%); and improved/expanded infrastructure (9%). Still, respondents listed high housing density and traffic congestion as being the top reasons their quality of life has gone downhill. Among the biggest crime and personal safety issues were: robbery/theft (29%), drugs (12%) and gang violence (8%). The Ipsos Reid poll also offered the following nuggets: • on satisfaction with city services, respondents listed: fire services (98%); public works (98%); parks (97%); policing (95%); and sports fields (94%). Neighbourhood planning was at the bottom (80%). • and on communication methods, respondents said the newspaper was their best source for city information (32%), followed by email (31%), the city website (23%) and mail (18%). Coun. Brent Asmundson said the $25,000 study gives the city“a true indication of what the people of Coquitlam are feeling... and we are moving in the right direction. We set a standard and we need to keep going.”

TRANSPORTATION: Experts say economy depends on transit

Centennial street banner art project

Fear about transit referendum continued from front page

The Oct. 31 Moving the Future conference in Vancouver drew 500 academics, engineers, economists, politicians and others. Presenters warned traffic jams will throttle the economy unless a solution to congestion is found and outlined many advantages of transit investment, from more affordable housing to a healthier population. Urban Futures demographer Andrew Ramlo noted the Lower Mainland’s population, from Squamish to Chilliwack, is set to grow 56% to 4.3 million by 2046. If the region doesn’t build more transit and make better use of the infrastructure it already has, he said, it faces a “gridlocked”future. High real estate prices already deter people and businesses from locating in the Vancouver area, delegates heard, and a failed transportation system will render the region less competitive and livable. “If we design our cities around cars, what do we get? More cars,” said Gil Peñalosa, a keynote speaker and advocate for healthy cities.“It’s like trying to put out a fire using gasoline.” The conference came against the backdrop of a looming referendum on transit investment that Metro Vancouver mayors fear may fail and run the expansion agenda off the rails for years. Vancouver’s Gregor Robertson said defeat would be “disastrous” and Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said better transit is

GORDON PRICE the only way to get more single-occupant vehicles off the road. A show of hands in the room revealed the vast majority don’t think the referendum will pass. “If anyone thinks a referendum is winnable, I’m amazed,” SFU City Program director Gordon Price said, adding the province’s decision to force the vote on the region reflects a “crisis of leadership.” The question has not yet been decided by the province but others in the room saw the gathering as a chance to build an alliance of leaders to campaign in support of the expected vote to raise billions in taxes to build new transit lines. The problem, many delegates admitted privately, is that the academics, business leaders, planners and other elites present don’t hold a majority of the vote. And they concede they face broad public opposition to more taxes of any kind — be it a possible regional sales tax, a vehicle levy or the more distant prospect of comprehensive road tolling. It doesn’t help, some say, that the debate is inaccurately cast as a strug-

gle between two tribes: transit users versus motorists who supposedly won’t benefit from new rapid transit lines but may end up footing a disproportionate share of the bill. “To me, it would be tragic if it’s a ‘no’ vote,” said Michael Goldberg, a conference presenter and dean emeritus at UBC’s Sauder School of Business.“I think it’s terribly unfortunate that we’re having a referendum.” Goldberg said opposition voices, amplified by the media, recite a simple but shortsighted no-newtaxes mantra and unfairly attack TransLink without acknowledging that transit is a public good that’s crucial to making the region more competitive. “I hope we can marshall the forces to inform the

general public why this is good for them,”he said. Bob Wilds, general manager of the Greater Vancouver Gateway Council, was one of the business leaders in the audience who is outspoken about the dangers of road congestion and a likely ally. “There would be a real problem if there isn’t a successful referendum,” said Wilds, whose group represents shippers, port terminals and goods movers. He declined to say if he opposes the premier’s decision to order the plebiscite, saying, “We are where we’re at. It’s been announced. We just have to figure out a way to deal with it and be successful at it.” Blair Qualey, president and CEO of the New Car Dealers’ Association of

Wilson on n Centre re e Dental al al Clinic c

BC, was another attendee whose presence raised some eyebrows. “Public transit is an integral part of the overall transportation system,” he said in an interview later, adding it’s important for the whole province that solutions be found. Qualey wouldn’t say what funding source the car dealers’ group would support but added spending on roads and bridges is also needed. “How it’s paid for, I guess, becomes the big question,” Qualey said. “We’re a bit concerned that the costs of financing more public transit may be put on the backs of working people. We are supporters of user pay to the extent that it needs to be fair and equitable. It’s a tough discussion.”

TRANSPORTATION: Prendergast speaks

Ex-CEO hopeful for transit cash solution Mayors agree on need to properly fund transit By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

Former TransLink CEO Tom Prendergast says he’s not surprised TransLink is no closer to solving its financial challenges than it was when he left four years ago. But he doesn’t think the region is doomed to remain forever mired in political paralysis about how to pay for transit upgrades that most leaders consider essential. The former boss of Metro Vancouver’s transit system left in 2009 to take charge of New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority but returned last week as a speaker at the Moving the Future transportation conference. Prendergast said it’s not unusual for it to take two or three tries to find the right path in such a challenging public policy debate. He was cautious not to give an opinion on the merits of holding a referendum, adding he has no experience with one but said he believes the region’s mayors can be influential champions of theYes side. “The 23 mayors got it — they understood the importance of the transportation network to the region,” he said, referring wto the united political front that has remained relatively intact in seeking an ambitious transit expansion. “If you had the majority of mayors saying that they’re for this, I think people get it. I think if you had unanimity, it would be exceptionally strong.” Prendergast told the conference the biggest recent shift in thinking in transit circles is under-

Former TransLink CEO Tom Prendergast speaks at the Moving the Future transportation conference, held last Thursday in Vancouver. standing the changing demographics of transit and transportation. “We’ve got people who are millennials right now who don’t own a car and they don’t want to own a car,” he said, noting that younger people are using transit on a daily basis, not just for their commutes. The t a k e a w a y, Prendergast said, is to plan not based on current patterns of transit

and road use but what’s likely 10 or 15 years from now. Another glimmer of optimism for transit advocates came from the head of Los Angeles County’s metro transportation authority, Art Leahy, who recounted how his region recently voted 67% to approve a 0.5% sales tax increase to fund major transit upgrades.

Hazmat call to local bus Coquitlam RCMP and the Hazmat Team were called to Coquitlam Central Station early yesterday after a strange substance was found on a bus coming from Maple Ridge. Cpl. Jamie Chung told The TriCity News that a man threw a vial of liquid on the floor of a transit vehicle and crushed the glass by stomping on it. Nobody was injured as a result of the incident but the driver and his supervisor were taken to hospital as a precaution. “The chemical in question does not appear to be lethal,” Chung said. “Somebody threw a vial on the floor. That is what it appears to be at this time.” Police are still investigating.

Halloween fairly uneventful for local police, firefighters The Tri-CiTy News

Halloween was a fairly uneventful night for firefighters in the Tri-Cities. G r e g M a y b e r r y, Coquitlam’s assistant fire chief, told The Tri-City News that aside from some young people firing bottle rockets into a garbage can at Scott Creek middle school, there were no major incidents. “I think a big thing, I believe, is the ban on fireworks,” he said. “There isn’t as many

o p p o rtunities for the general public to buy fireworks.” H e CHUNG added that firefighters worked with the RCMP, patrolling neighbourhoods in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam and making sure their presence was known to anyone looking to start trouble. Things were also quiet in Port Moody, which only re-

ceived seven calls on Halloween, none of which were related to fireworks or holiday revelling. Fire Chief Remo Faedo said the fact the weather was damp and Halloween fell on a school night made things a bit easier. “If it is dry and it is a weekend, we tend to get more firework-related incidents,” he said. “That last three years, we have been assisted by the weather.” Co q u itlam RCMP also had a fairly quiet night, although call vol-

umes were up, according to Cpl. Jamie Chung. Mounties in PoCo and Coquitlam received 25 calls related to noise and seized a large number of fireworks. “They are usually seized because the people are under age or they don’t have permits,” Chung said. Two suspects were also arrested in two separate robberies that occurred on Halloween. Chung said their names are being withheld pending charges. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Cops empty handed after chase Port Moody police are searching for the driver of a van that crashed into a home in the 2200-block of St. George Street last Thursday. Officers first noticed the van because its temporary use permit was obstructed from view. When police activated their emergency lights to stop it, the vehicle fled down St. Andrews Street and

eventually crashed into a garage on St. George. But the chase was not over yet. The suspect took off on foot and despite the efforts of the PMPD’s dog unit, officers were unable to find the driver. The file is still under investigation and anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call the Port Moody Police Department at

604-461-3456.

HIT & HURT

A 2 6 - y e a r- o l d Burnaby man is recovering after being struck by a vehicle while crossing St. Johns Street early Friday morning. The incident occurred shortly after 1:50 a.m. and Port Moody police said poor weather and visibility were key factors in the

accident. “Alcohol was not a factor for the driver or pedestrian,” said Const. Luke van Winkel. “No charges or motor vehicle act tickets are being considered at this time.” The man was crossing St. Johns Street in front of the Point Pub when he was struck by a vehicle heading west. He was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Will, meet way T

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside

he old saying “Where there’s a will, there’s a way” has proven accurate when it comes to housing the homeless in the Tri-Cities. Volunteers, affordable housing advocates, churchgoers, business people and local politicians have once again proven that this is a community that cares. A few months ago, it didn’t look that way. A few months ago, it looked as if there would be no shelter this winter for people who are homeless. Now, thanks to co-operation between various churches, city officials and the Hope for Freedom Society, the temporary shelter program has been revived and there will be a warm, dry place for people to stay as winter approaches. There will even be a bus to pick up people, thanks to Coquitlam Coun. Brent Asmundson, the business community, TransLink and Coast Mountain Bus Company. In fact, the first temporary shelter is already running at Calvary Baptist Church and Coquitlam Alliance Church will take over Dec. 1. The way it will work now is that three churches in Coquitlam will take turns hosting the shelter for a month each and, in Port Moody, the paperwork is also done so St. Andrew’s United can host the program for a month early next year. All that’s needed now is for Port Coquitlam to step up, and that is now looking like a real possibility, as well. That’s good news compared to just a few months ago when the situation was looking particularly dire. PoCo council had turned down a temporary use permit for a temporary shelter at Grace Church and it looked like the entire federally funded bridge shelter program was about to collapse. Now, the program is working again, although some issues remain. There are still concerns that fewer homeless people will take advantage of the program this year compared to last because there is nowhere for them to store their belongings. But through the continued support of the community, surely those hurdles can be overcome so no one has to suffer in the cold.

More flu shots, less ‘chaos’ at B.C.’s hospitals BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA got my influenza shot this week, paid for out of pocket since I don’t qualify for any of the higher-risk groups provided with free immunization. A reminder to take this simple health precaution came in October when a labour arbitrator ruled that it is a reasonable employment requirement for health care workers to either get the current immunization or mask up in patient care areas. Quiet advocacy by Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall has paid off. Staff, doctors, outside contractors and visitors will have to put patients first. Health care unions pressed a grievance on behalf of members who insist they have a right to refuse immunization and increase exposure to patients.They have apparently ran up the white flag.

I

“We will be telling our members to comply with the new policy or risk being fired,”said an overly dramaticVal Avery, president of the Health Sciences Association. HSA lawyers led the grievance, supported by the Hospital Employees’ Union and the BC Nurses’ Union. Avery said the union will continue to urge its members to take advantage of on-site flu shot clinics.That’s right, like most provincial employees, they all get immunization that is not only free but administered at work. Kendall announced the regulation last year after finding that 40% of employees in long-term care were not getting the current influenza vaccine and the rate of immunization was declining. Their objections make no sense. Aside from the self-serving“rights”argument, they complain that the annual flu vaccine isn’t effective enough. The formula is developed by international effort to track the dominant strains that emerge as winter rolls around the world. Kendall says a poor match results in about 40% immunity and a good match reaches 90%. And at the risk of stating the obvious, he notes that even 40% is

should we still give Halloween candy?

Don’t demolish our older, smaller homes The Editor, A question I had for candidates in Coquitlam’s recent council byelection election was “Please advise your major campaign financial contributors.” Development companies and real estate firms were high on the list, as they were for our current mayor and councillors. It is becoming apparent there is a disconnect between the vision a majority of homeowners in established areas of Coquitlam have for the future of their neighbourhoods and what Coquitlam council is allowing to happen. It is challenging for our elected officials to balance the goals of financial contributors with the goals of long-term residents. How many of us have been told an oversize house on our block is desirable because everyone wants to get the most out of valuable land? I believe a significant percentage of the population gets value by way of residing in an area likely to maintain its character. Their value is a home of good quality that will last a while with renovations, is in a good location to raise a family and will be paid for soon enough — save for ever increasing taxes. Having a reasonable sized home on a large lot is not a sin. This preserves the continuity of Coquitlam’s urban forest and connecting green space. Demolishing perfectly good, affordable homes in order to build a monument is a sin. Our established neighbourhoods are being decimated by overly large, out-of-character homes. Coquitlam has new areas for construction of such oversize houses so there is no advantage to altering the character of our well-established neighbourhoods, other than financial gain for real estate agents and developers — and, of course, higher taxes for the city. Council is consciously allowing the removal of affordable, good quality, single detached homes from the market. I know the hair on the top of my head has worn off from being patted by elected officials. They say I am in the minority and they know best. They say they have it all figured out. I don’t believe them. If you don’t, either, then phone, email or visit your mayor and councillors. Ken Holowanky, Coquitlam

The Editor, Re. “Is Halloween a tradition to keep or discard, like old candy?” (Face to Face, The TriCity News, Nov. 1). I believe Halloween is a little like Christmas — with the spirit of giving in mind. This is especially evident in households that don’t have young children any longer. They bother to put up decorations, they bother to purchase candy, they bother to stay home. But first, the candy issue needs to be addressed. As we start to recognize the growing trends

THINKSTOCK

of global obesity, households should start thinking of alternatives to the traditional candy. There is an abundance of non-edible Halloween treats: balloons, stickers, stationary, etc. No one says you can’t give those out.

Most part of the evening’s excitement for my kids is being able to go about freely knocking on doors. It is all about independence, which is a valuable experience for all kids especially the more reserved, introverted and shy ones.  Halloween provides a safe opportunity for children to build self esteem and confidence without the fear of rejection or embarrassment. When a door opens, we know the results would be positive. It is an opportunity that should not be missed. Liz Wade, Coquitlam

Happy Nov. 1 – got your pass? The Editor, The Transit Police were out in full force at 6 a.m. Friday, Nov/ 1 at the top of the escalator at Lougheed SkyTrain station checking fares. The problem? • They were causing a dangerous situation by blocking people trying to get off the escalator. • It was the first day of the month so they were catching those fare evaders who were distracted by Halloween activities

and had failed to renew their monthly pass. By Monday, these folks would have their new monthly passes so TransLink would still get its money. Congratulations on nailing the honest working people who pay to ride. How about doing the same thing, say, in the second week of the month and get the fare evaders who never pay? Unfortunately, I lost some respect for the

Transit Police because of this. The next time I see a member of transit staff put their foot in the door of the SkyTrain to hold the train for a co-worker, I will do my due diligence and get their information and report it to ensure that we all adhere to the rules with no exception. I guess the next time the Transit Police will be out in full force to punish the folks who pay will be on Thursday, Jan. 2, 2014? Paul Juoksu, Coquitlam

Participants have until Nov. 15 to enter their tree By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

Wi t h H a l l o w e e n just passed and Remembrance Day just ahead, the festive season will soon be in full swing. And with it this year comes a new special event in Port Coquitlam. Businesses and community groups in PoCo can register until Nov. 15 for the Centennial Holiday Tree Festival in celebration of the city’s 100th birthday. PoCo Heritage and Cultural Society is organizing the event and hopes to get at least 100 entrants, with the best tree being chosen by residents. “We are inviting Port Coquitlam’s businesses and community groups to enter their holiday trees in a city-wide contest,” said Pippa Van Velzen, a member of the society and a festival coordinator. The contest, she said, is an opportunity for businesses and community groups to show their Christmas spirit and tell their stories through the trees. Participants can keep their trees at their business or set up a tree at one of the festival’s partner sites, which include Heritage at Leigh Square, Terry Fox Library, PoCo rec complex or Leigh Square Community Arts Village. The deadline for entry is Nov. 15 and the public will have an opportunity to cast their ballots for their favourite tree until Dec. 18 (residents can vote online at www. placeweave.com/festival or at PoCo Heritage Leigh Square facility). The fee to enter the contest is $100, with all proceeds going to the PoCo Heritage Society. In return for their participation, entrants will be included in the 5,000 copies of the festival map and calendar, which will be distributed to each of the festival sites. Some of the events at the festival include a Christmas puppet show at the Terry Fox Library, craft mak-

‘Geek culture is cool’ and biz is hot 20 years later for Hourglass From no-touch collectors to kids with tablets By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

W

hen Sam Chadwick told his parents he was dropping out of engineering school to open up a comic book shop, they figured it wouldn’t be long before he returned to BCIT. That was in 1993. L a s t w e e k , Po r t Moody’s Hourglass Comics celebrated its 20th anniversary and Chadwick said his business is still continuing to grow. “My parents were very supportive,” he said. “My mom is a little surprised that I have been doing it for this long. I think they thought I would do it for a while and then go back to school.” The industry has seen many changes during Chadwick’s two decades in business. When he opened his shop, there were many stores just like his dotting the Lower Mainland suburbs. But when the industry began to wane in the late 1990s, many of his competitors were forced to close their doors, with Hourglass hanging on and filling the void. As a 19-year-old starting out, Chadwick made up for his lack of business experience with an ability to assess the genres and stories his customers liked. “As far as the business stuff goes, I learned by doing,” he said.“The comics themselves I knew really, really well. Right off the bat, I had a gift for

the characters on the big screen. Some are turning to comic books, which has led to changes in the types of customers at Hourglass. “When I first started out, it was more geek culture,” he said.“It still is, but geek culture is actually cool right now.” Gone are the days when collectors dominated the business, fear-

ing that even a fingerprint or a folded page could reduce the value of a rare comic book. Younger enthusiasts, Chadwick said, buy comics for the art and the stories and treat them more as an entertainment medium than a collector’s item. The internet is also changing the industry. Many people are buying

their comics online or in digital form and viewing them on their tablet computers, Chadwick said. But the 39-year-old entrepreneur isn’t worried about these latest developments. As he sees it, there will always be a need for shops like Hourglass, where customers are paying for knowledge just as much as their comic books.

Chadwick believes that while the internet may affect larger retailers, fans will still flock to his store, where they can see and hold the latest stories the industry is producing. “We already understand how to do niche,” he said.“Making us more niche is not necessarily a bad thing.” gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Beyond the elementary with works inspired by Holmes A GOOD READ Tammie Mercado

S

cumstances in these stories make for some great tension between Holmes’ scientific mind and the otherworldly phenomena he encounters.There are three collections in this series: Gaslight Grimoire: Fantastic Tales of Sherlock Holmes; Gaslight Grotesque: Nightmare Tales of Sherlock Holmes; and Gaslight Arcanum: Uncanny Tales of Sherlock Holmes. In the popular Mary Russell series, Laurie R. King explores the partnership between the title character and a retired Holmes. Sherlock becomes Russell’s mentor, training her in detection and deductive reasoning. As the stories progress, the two become peers and partners.To date, there are 12 books in this long-running series. In The Baker Street Letters, Michael Robertson offers a mystery series that explores the popularity and cultural legacy of Holmes as a fictional character.

Soon, the two are drawn into solving the mysterious cases sent to the famous address. There are currently four books in this series. There are also some alternative Holmes titles for younger readers. In The Enola Holmes Mysteries, Nancy Springer presents the 14-year-old younger sister of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes, who struggles to prove herself as a capable investigator and an independent young woman. The Boy Sherlock Holmes series introduces Sherlock as a young teen who is in the early stages of becoming the master sleuth of Doyle’s

ir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes is a perennial favourite amongst those who love to watch a great detective at work. And with a recent movie franchise (Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes) and two current television series (the U.K.’s Sherlock and Elementary on CBS/ Global TV), the character is as popular as ever. This continued interest is also reflected in the world of books. Doyle’s classic stories continue to be well-read and the characters are frequently revisited by other writers. Over the years, many authors have crafted new adventures for Sherlock Holmes and John Watson in a wide variety of locales, situations and genres — in stories that range from the traditional to the fantastic and all points in between. The short story anthology A Study in Sherlock: Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon gives some of today’s most recognized authors the opportunity to pay homage to Doyle’s most famous character. Edited by Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger, this collection includes stories by Neil Gaiman and Lee Child. Fans of science fiction and horror will appreciate the Gaslight series edited by J.R. Campbell and Charles Prepolec.The decidedly supernatural cir-

stories. As this series progresses, Shane Peacock takes Sherlock through his adolescent years as he grows into a young adult and an increasingly skilled detective. If you’re interested in illustrated adaptations of some of the classic Holmes mysteries, try the graphic novel series by Ian Edginton and illustrated by I.N.J. Culbard.These books are faithful to the original stories but are adapted to fit the graphic novel format.There are currently four titles in this series: The Hound of the Baskervilles, A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of Four and The Valley of Fear. These are just a few of the available titles that provide alternative adventures for Sherlock Holmes and his various colleagues and adversaries. And for those more interested in the classic tales, try The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Doyle, which contains the original novels and short stories.Visit the library for these titles or to ask for more suggestions in the continuing adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

W

hen Louise Smith was a teen, she saw an artist working with silks, threads and fabrics to create a lovely piece. The British native was intrigued and tucked the image in the back of her mind to do at a later date. Five years ago, the Vancouver resident plucked out the idea and made the time to teach herself about the craft. “I was ready for the creative challenge.”she said. Smith honed her technique by watching YouTube videos, practicing on a cheap sewing machine and “making tons of mistakes,” she said. “I wasn’t sure how it was going to work out at the start so I just kept trying over and over until I got something that I liked,” she said. Since then, Smith has made about 40 fibre arts pieces and entered eight of them into last year’s Positively Petite exhibit, an annual display of 2D and 3D miniature creations at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts.

For the 2013 show that opens next week, Smith has eight new offerings that will focus on nature and fruit themes, each of them measuring 3x4 inches. Smith said the mixed media exhibition is unique as it gathers an array of talent at the arts hub, with more than 40 artists showing their tiny work. Smith especially loves it when viewers do double-takes of her pieces. “I’ll watch someone say, ‘Did you notice it was thread?’ A

lot get tricked by it because it’s so subtle. People can be fooled that it’s a painting but the thread really brings out the sheen and catches the light.” Also opening at Place des Arts next Thursday is a new collection of colour photographs by Marina Crawford. Her ... still life in Vancouver... features pictures of Vancouver neighbourhoods snapped over a decade. As well, Danaca Ackerson will open her Botticelli Remix/Voyage Allégorique series.

Meanwhile, holiday shoppers can get ahead with their lists by visiting Place des Arts’ Christmas Boutique, which opened yesterday (Tuesday).

The milestone event — held during the city’s 100th anniversary celebrations — will open with a reception and a speech by Mayor Greg Moore on Friday, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. in The Outlet. The fall show continues on Nov. 16 and 17 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will feature acrylic, oil and watercolour paintings plus mixed media and photographs.

Can you stay awake through 30 hours of improv? By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy NeWs

Can you sit through 30 hours of continuous improv? A Port Coquitlam comedy troupe is offering the challenge to Tri-City residents this month. Second Storey Theatre will host 30 improv sets — lasting 50 minutes each — from Friday, Nov. 15 at 6 p.m. to Sunday, Nov. 17 at midnight. Artistic director Graham Myers said Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore will open the marathon session on Friday night.

Among those lined up to perform include Myers’ four-year-old niece “who just likes to pretend,” he said; Toronto voice actor/ impressionist David Andrew Brent; Coquitlam comic Ed Hill, who last week released a new CD titled Canasian; ECCW MyeRs w r e s t l e r R a nve n o u s Randy Myers; and Pigeon Park rockers Nick Weber and Hunter Elliott. “We’ve got quite a cast of characters,” Myers said. “It’ll be fun to see what they

come up with. “Without a doubt, you are probably going to see some of the best improv ever,”he said. Myers said he got the concept for the 30-hour improv from other comedy companies and “it’s a crazy enough idea for me to do HIll it, too,”he said. Myers will emcee and will stay awake for the entire weekend event. And anyone else who keeps their eyes open as well for the full 30 hours will get a year’s pass to Second

Storey shows, he said. Partial proceeds from the improv bonanza will go to help the Family Resource Centre, based at Port Coquitlam’s Minnekhada middle school. Tickets are $5 per show or $30 for a weekend wristband by visiting Second Storey Theatre (201-2550 Shaughnessy St.) or going online at sstimprov.com. Buyers of online passes will be automatically entered to win a prize from the event sponsors, including Cactus Club, Samz Pub Port Coquitlam, Samz Pub Pitt Meadows and Alliance Printing. jwarren@tricitynews.com

COURTESY OF PLACE DES ARTS

Clarinetist and Place des Arts music teacher Johanna Hauser will perform with Reginald Quiring (violin and viola) and pianist Rosemary O’Connor on Saturday, Nov. 16 for the centre’s first faculty concert of the season.

Music from around the world  By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News

The first faculty concert of the season at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts next week will be a whirlwind journey to four continents. Clarinetist and teacher Johanna Hauser will lead her audience around the world, stopping first in Armenia to hear the folk dances from composer Aram Khachaturian.  Hauser will perform the piece with Reg Quiring on violin and his wife, Rosemary O’Connor, on piano. Next, Hauser will land in England with O’Connor to perform Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Six Studies in English Folk Song, a work originally set for cello and piano. Hauser will then pair up with Quiring for Ofer Ben-Amots’ Cantellations, a sombre tribute to the Israeli community. And finally, her chamber music tour will conclude in Asia with Bright Sheng’s

Tibetan Dance for clarinet, violin and piano. The latter piece, written in 2000, inspired Hauser to put together her Global Classics concert. Recently, she was buying sheet music at Long & McQuade when Tibetan Dance sprung up. Not knowing when — or if — she would ever play it, Hauser eventually began to structure her faculty recital around the work. “I found it fascinating how his ethnic roots fused with western classical musical,” she said of Sheng, a Chinese-American composer, conductor and pianist who is now on faculty at the University of Michigan. Hauser said she picked the piece from Israeli-American Ben-Amots — now a music composition and theory teacher at Colorado College — because it reminded her of the Jewish folklore sounds she heard as a child while at the synagogue. By contrast, Vaughan Williams’

English tune offers “such a sweet melody” while Khachaturian “is one of the titans of Soviet music.” “It has been really, really interesting to put this program together. You can hear so much “It’s hard because I can’t work while going of their native countries in their to school - my body just won’t do it anymore. music,”Hauser said.

Kids’ choirs join Foote on stage By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News

Children’s entertainer and comedian Norman Foote tends to shy away from preaching to his audience. So when his young son suggested his new CD and its title track be called Always Be Yourself, Foote was hesitant at first. “I don’t like to have strong messages in my music or shows,” the father-of-five said, “but I thought, in this case, it was okay to have a reminder for kids.  “It’s really about embracing who you are and I don’t think that’s something you are ever taught to do as a child,”he said. Out this past May, Always Be Yourself is Foote’s eighth album and includes 10 new tracks. It follows his 2010 Juno award-winning CD, Love My New Shirt, which that year bested releases from Bobs and Lolo, Charlie Hope, The Kerplunks and The Bee’s Knees. Always Be Yourself “is not rock ‘n roll,” Foote said, referring to other children’s acts.“Some people try to do that but I like the melody.” And, for his shows, Foote also likes having an “animated wall of song, action and sound effects” behind him.

Nor man Foote will perfor m in Coquitlam on Nov. 12. Take, for example, his performance at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way) next Tuesday when Foote will be joined on stage by guest singers from the Coastal Sound Music Academy, Vivo, Aubrey and Aspenwood elementary. 

For several weeks, the young choirs have been learning Foote’s new and older tunes. Foote said he’ll rehearse with them once or twice “but never in the theatre because I don’t want them to be nervous.” Foote’s concerts are fully engaging, filled with humour and silly props. He uses his original songs C as educational tools and, for music teachers, he supplies study guides. M Often, Foote will offer songwriting Y workshops for students. CM Foote said his aim to allow children to have fun while performing. MY “The wonderful thing about my CY shows is that they give a lot back to the kids. They don’t sing comCMY plicated harmonies; the goal is for K them to enjoy themselves and to keep them focused.” After his Coquitlam gig, Foote will take his promotional tour to Alberta before returning to the Lower Mainland for seven more dates. • Norman Foote will appear on Tuesday, Nov. 12 at 6:30 p.m. as part of the Evergreen Cultural Centre’s family series.

New fashion line

A Port Moody secondary graduate has launched her new fashion brand and debuted her second collection. Last night, Coquitlam’s Charlotte Clissold presented her brand Charlotte Elaine and collection Pétale at the Atelier 2013 fashion show at the CBC Studios in Vancouver. The event was hosted by the Art Institute of Vancouver. According to a press release, Pétale is based on the nuanced colours seen in rose petals. And one outfit from the line has been on display at The Bay in Vancouver as part of the store’s showcase of emerging fashion designers and pattern makers from the Art Institute. Clissold, who has her fashion arts diploma from Vancouver Community College, is expected to earn her diploma in fashion design from the Art Institute this month. Last year, Clissold unveiled her first collection, Grimm, at the 2012 Fiat Mode XXV fashion show. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Riverside snares second at Red Serge By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News

The Riverside Rapids fell just short of knocking off the province’s top-ranked girls volleyball team at the 14th annual Red Serge Classic. The Rapids put a scare into the No. 1-ranked South Delta Sun Devils, who held off the hosts 26-24, 21-25, 15-12 in Saturday’s final. “ We ’ ve s t r u g g l e d with inconsistent play all year. We’ve showed moments of really great team play and then we’ve had moments where we just fall apart,” said Rapids coach Bryan Gee. “The kids were resilient this weekend and showed mental toughness and courage. We don’t rely on one or two players, we really need a team effort to be successful.” Riverside advanced to the finals with a 2523, 21-25, 15-11 win over Earl Marriott (Surrey) in the semifinals. The quarterfinals saw Riverside down Pinetree of Coquitlam 25-13, 25-22. The Rapids compiled a 3-1 record in the round robin, stopping Lord Tweedsmuir 2517, 14-25, 15-13, getting past Handsworth 25-13, 25-18 and edging South

The Rapids lone loss again came at the hands of South Delta 18-25, 22-25. The tournament featured a who’s who of some of the province’s top girls volleyball teams, and the strong

showing by the No. 8-ranked Rapids opened a few eyes. “They’re a young team that this weekend learned how to string together consistent efforts over a long period of time,” said Gee, adding that only one

Grade 12 player sees the floor regularly with the Rapids. “We didn’t just perform well for one time. We performed well for the entire weekend and that showed a huge learning curve for our kids in terms of how to

compete and how to be consistent over a long period of time in intense competition.” Pinetree put up a fight in every round robin contest but could only pull out a single win, 17-25, 25-20, 15-13 over Penticton. They lost to

Pacific Academy 21-25, 25-21, 13-15, dropped a 23-25, 25-19, 13-15 match to Earl Marriott and fell 25-27, 24-26 to Kelowna. Pinetree earned a spot in the quarterfinal with a 1525, 25-23, 15-10 win over Handsworth.

Ta ry n To s c a n i o f Riverside and Pinetree’s Emily Maglio were named tournament all-stars while Nicole McNamura of South Delta picked up MVP honours. see ZONE, page A23

Time runs out on Express comeback Three third-period goals weren’t enough to erase a large lead as the Coquitlam Express dropped their fifth straight, losing 6-4 to the visiting Alberni Valley Bulldogs Friday night. The Dogs jumped out to a 2-1 lead after one period and built the lead to 5-1 in the second despite being outshot 21-6. The Express continued to fire pucks on net in the third, with Bo Pieper converting a rebound and Joey Santucci finishing a nice feed from BCHL assist leader Adam Rockwood to pull Coquitlam within

two. But an empty net goal restored the Bulldogs’ three-goal lead before Marc Biega finished off the scoring in the final minute. Rookie scoring leader Corey Mackin also found the net for Coquitlam to give him 12 on the year. Gordie Defiel turned aside 31 shots for Coquitlam, who outshot Alberni Valley 45-37. The loss drops the Express’ record to 8-90-2, one point up on the Surrey Eagles who visit Coquitlam at 7 p.m. tonight.

Nathan Wadhwani of Terry Fox secondary in Port Coquitlam leads the pack heading for the finish line at the rain-drenched provincial high school cross-country championships Saturday at Aldergrove Regional Park. Wadhwani passed Liam Kennell of Victoria-Oak Bay in the final few hundred metres to take first place in a time of 20:32.51.

Canadian champion Mandy Bujold. Haghighat Joo fought well, but the speed and experience of Bujold was too much for her, and the champ beat her by unanimous decision. The club was pleased with the result as Haghighat Joo was in her first appearance at the nationals, and was fighting on an injured foot. “The club and coach-

ing team are very proud of our boxers, for their best efforts put forth,”said club spokesperson Carol Skanks. Sasan Haghighat Joo, the brother of silver medallist Sara, fought Albertan Devon Retti in the 69 kg weight class, losing a 2-1 split decision. It was a tough defeat, given that Sasan had beaten Retti in a bout earlier in the year.

Say goodbye to pain. Experience the benefits of

What our patients say... Ankle and Foot “Laser treatment for my foot and ankle injury (ligaments & tendons) was a success after 3 years of trying other treatments which failed.” EA (85) Headache & Neck Pain “Due to a whiplash injury, I suffered severe neck pain. I had approximately 18 treatments and no longer suffer neck pain - it is truly a miracle.” Patsy Bernstein (58) Arthritis Both Knees “I have been suffering from knee pain for several years. I tried a number of other treatments to no avail. I am more than pleased with the results of laser light as my pain has reduced significantly.” William Jack (63) Shoulder Pain “I had frozen shoulder that limited my mobility. After 9 treatments of laser therapy my shoulder has gained back almost all mobility. There is no pain or discomfort with the treatments.” J.L. (48) Neck pain for 20 years “I had tried so many other procedures before so I thought I’d give laser light a try as all others had failed. After a few sessions I was surprised from the relief I got. I would highly recommend this procedure as a solution, it really works.” D.D. (69)

Plantar Fasciitis “I have plantar fasciitis and a bone spur on my heel. I have been going for 4 weeks now and am almost all the way healed. The treatments are painless.” J.M. (52) Hip Replacement “After having a hip replacement, I have lived with constant pain for 4 years. After having laser treatment, I feel like a new person.” V.W. (84) Knee Pain “...after just 7 sessions, I feel much better. I can now walk and go up and down stairs without pain at the end of the day.” G.L. (48) Severe Back Pain “After a CT scan of my low back, I was diagnosed with: • Lumbar disc bulges L2 L3 L4 L5 • Pars defect with anterolisthesis • Central canal spinal stenosis • Scoliosis My doctor recommended surgery. Fortunately, I was recommended to try Laser Therapy – what a blessing! After 10 treatments, I am able to walk pain free. What a relief!” M.B. (71) Foot Pain Due to Fracture “...my mobility has returned and the pain has gone!” D.B. (55)

Laser Light Therapy Low Intensity Laser Therapy

Neck Pain for 10 Years “After just 6 treatments the pain was gone and I could turn my neck freely. the difference was so huge, I couldn’t believe it!” M.R. (46) Knee Pain for 30 Years “I feel rejuvenated at 52, cycling regularly and ready to take on more physical challenges. Thanks to this amazing therapy!” Bill (52) Hip Flexor Ligament Torn “I would recommend this to anybody who is tired of wasting time with methods of recovery that don’t work, or you just want to get better faster.” RL (13) Cold Sore “I hadn’t been aware of laser for such an application, but I was delighted to see visible improvement after one treatment, and after the second, it was gone!” C.M. (64) Shoulder & Arm Pain “...the benefit to my shoulder is so surprising that I am continually moving, stretching my arm just to prove to myself that I am not imagining what I am feeling and doing. Moving without pain! That is something to be happy about.” A.B. (58)

Painful Hamstring “With the laser treatment, my hamstrings aren’t tight anymore, I have much more flexibility.” S.B. (29) Inguinal Hernia Post Surgery “I found the treatments alleviated acute pain after a hernia operation. I would recommend the procedure to anyone with pain or scars” GPA (55) Frozen Shoulder Tendonitis “I began a series of treatments on my shoulder and neck which I found to be relaxing and non-invasive. Ultimately I regained, almost completely, mobility in my left shoulder.” A.L. (69) Neck Pain “Even after the first session of cold laser therapy, I felt the difference right away.” M.E. (54) Thigh Pain “I no longer have pain from my hip to the knee. This is such a miracle for me and I highly recommend it. It’s FABULOUS!” C.B. (61) Cold Sore “On the fourth day, I had my 3rd and final 30 minute treatment. The outbreak was finished and my lip felt and looked good as new.” William (52)

HOW IT WORKS

Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is a highly sophisticated, non-toxic and non-invasive therapy that uses light energy from both superluminous and laser diodes. When placed in contact with the skin, this energy safely penetrates the tissue. At an intracellular level, the light is transformed into biochemical energy. Cells use this energy to repair and regenerate themselves, enhancing the body’s natural healing process.

WHO CAN BENEFIT?

BioFlex Low Intensity Laser Therapy is an effective solution for musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions, dermatological problems and the healing of open wounds. BioFlex therapy can safely increase the rate of recovery and help patients reduce the need for pain medication. BioFlex also has the ability to promote rapid recovery post surgery. The beneficial effects of LILT are cumulative over the course of a series of treatments.
