Trans. plan doesn’t go far enough, says mayor
Let the giving begin The festive season in the Tri-Cities is remarkable for the number of opportunities to reach out to the less fortunate in the community. We’ve got some of those opportunities covered, from an Ugly Sweater Run [page 17] to a Coats for Kids campaign [page 23]. There are also opportunities for some families to receive Christmas hampers and presents for children, or to help those in need [page 32].
Alternatives to cars are key, says PoCo’s Moore By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
The city of Port Coquitlam will be moving forward with its Master Transportation Plan (MTP) without the support of a key council member. On Tuesday, Mayor G r e g M o o r e vo t e d against the initiative, saying the goals outlined in the MTP do not go far enough. Moore, also chair of the Metro Vancouver board, said he wants to see greater emphasis on public transit and alternative modes of transportation while limiting the
Extend Evergreen?: page 6 increase in vehicle trips over the course of the 30to 40-year plan. “It was a really tough decision,” he told The TriCity News on Wednesday, a day after the rest of council voted in favour of endorsing the plan. “I had many sleepless nights knowing I was going to oppose one of our major plans.” He outlined his reasons. Currently, vehicle trips in Port Coquitlam average approximately 115,000 per day, a number that would rise to 152,000 over the next three decades under the MTP. see NUMBER OF, page 4

The first Ugly Sweater Run is set for Saturday, Nov. 23 at Lafarge Lake in Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park and is the latest fundraiser from the group that hosts the annual Ugly Sweater Christmas Party at the Commodore Ballroom. For details on this fun — and ugly — 5 km event, see article on page 17.
A man was rushed to hospital suffering from stab wounds after an incident Wednesday afternoon at Shaughnessy Street and Lions Way in Port Coquitlam. Police arrived on the scene shortly after 3:30 p.m. and traffic in the area was snarled as many commuters were coming home from work. The extent of the victim’s injuries were unknown yesterday and Coquitlam RCMP said investigators would not be able to release any further information at
this time. “He is in stable condition,” said Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung on Thursday morning. “The injuries were severe but non-life threatening.” He added that investigators are still combing the scene searching for evidence and that more information would be forthcoming later in the day. Anyone who witnessed the incident is urged to contact the Coquitlam RCMP at 604945-1550 and quote file number 2013-33574. email@example.com

What’s the buzz in Port Moody? By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News
Port Moody council has responded to a buzz going on in the community — or more accurately, the lack of it. Council gave first three readings Tuesday to a bylaw that would repeal the prohibition of beekeeping in the city. “I think this is the be-
ginning of a leap forward in terms of food security for our community,” said Coun. Zoe Royer. Mayor Mike Clay said while there hasn’t been an overwhelming demand from potential beekeepers, some people have approached the city about establishing beehives on their property. “People have noticed, and I have certainly no-
ticed, some of the fruit trees are not bearing the amount of fruit that they did as the population densifies and there’s less bees around,” he said. “Frankly, you look at it and say, ‘Why are we prohibiting it?’ Most [cities] don’t anymore.” Council also adopted some guidelines for local beekeepers to follow, including where on a prop-
erty a hive can be located, restricting beekeeping to single-family residential zones or a site containing a community garden, and placing a limit of two beehives per lot. “We want to make sure there’s not a concentration of hives because then the bees begin competing,” senior building official Robyn MacLeod said in her pre-
sentation to council. MacLeod said one potential concern would be if the hives became an attractant for bears but noted that has not been an issue in other municipalities. The Provincial Bee Act requires anyone who operates honeybee colonies to register with the Ministry of Agriculture. firstname.lastname@example.org

Port Moody council on Tuesday gave first three readings to a bylaw that would make it legal to keep bees in the city, although there would be limits under the new regulations.
Big-bucks decisions in Coquitlam City asks dept. heads to find savings from within
your tax dollars at work in Coquitlam
By Janis Warren
How the city of Coquitlam’s proposed $284-million 2014 budget would be spent: • engineering: $68 million (26%) • planning: $7 million (2%) • strategic initiatives: $4 million (1%) • city manager: $5 million (2%) • council: $1 million (0%) • casino: $8 million (3%) • deputy city manager: $67 million (24%) • cultural groups: $7 million (2%) • fiscal services: $19 million (10%) • parks and rec: $27 million (10%) • capital: $71 million (20%)
The Tri-CiTy News
Four more Mounties, four additional firefighters and an expanded planning department. Those were among the big items Coquitlam city managers put forward this week as each department made its case about how to meet ambitious work plans with limited tax dollars. On Monday, council will weigh funding wants and needs at a day-long internal workshop, figuring out how best to handle the pressures in the ever-growing city within a $284-million budget. The department heads’ wish lists came a week after the city released results of its Ipsos Reid poll, which showed there are more Coquitlam residents who are willing to pay higher property taxes for enhanced or expanded services than than those who want to see city services cut to trim taxes. Still, the annual survey goes against what many home and business owners said last month during the council byelection campaign and at a town hall meeting: Property taxes in Coquitlam are too steep. With a year to go before the next general election, councillors are anxious to rein in city expenses and nervous about raising rates. On Tuesday, planning GM Jim McIntyre was the first in the line of fire to field questions about his proposed budget for next year. Council focused in on “net-zero requests,” 23 of which are before council for consideration for staffing and projects. As explained by treasury officials, “net-zero” means “at no cost to the taxpayer” — that is, department heads have to find the resources within their existing budgets to pay for new items. The explanation of the accounting proce-

dure set off some councillors, who questioned the transparency of the numbers. Coun. Lou Sekora accused city managers of “fudging the budget” by shuffling around the cash to pay for new requests. And, as in past years, Sekora called for zero-based budgeting — a process in which each budget would start from scratch, not build on previous years. Other councillors wondered aloud how the city could afford to do more, should the economy and housing market slow. McIntyre said his new requests come at a time
when the planning department is struggling to keep up with the workload. This year alone, his department processed 145 development applications and 848 building permits, translating to more than $312 million in construction value. He said adding a new subdivision and development technologist is justified as more — and more detailed — applications are filing in. As well, the city wants to use fewer consultants because it’s easier to do the work in-house, city manager Peter Steblin said. McIntyre said Coquit-
lam is in an enviable position with its development revenues and is competing well with other high-growth zones like Brentwood and Metrotown in Burnaby, and Surrey City Centre. McIntyre said he wants to introduce new fees, and raise others, (totalling $157,600 more per year) to offset expenditures. The topic of net-zero requests also popped up in other department presentations, including parks (which wants to convert two positions to regular full-time); engineering (more staff and infrastructure upgrades); and Coquitlam RCMP (conversion of contract work to auxiliary). Supt. Claude Wilcott, head of Coquitlam RCMP, told council he wants four more Mounties at a cost of $582,000 while Fire Chief Wade Pierlot is asking for four new firefighters to complete the staffing levels at the new Burke Mountain fire hall, which is not yet built; his request comes with a $341,000 price tag. The department of strategic initiatives is also asking for a 1% tax hike for each of the
next four years to create a new “facility periodic component replacement fund” (to pay for roof and boiler upgrades). Meanwhile, on Wednesday, cultural groups went before council to give an overview of their programs and to make their pitches. Coquitlam Public Library, which yesterday marked the one-year anniversary of the opening of the City Centre branch, wants $104,457 for union contract hikes plus $31,000 more to service the Pinetree Way facility, which is three times larger than the old city hall location it replaced. Place des Arts showed its $2.5-million wish list, which included more staff, music studio soundproofing, a consultant and $1.5 million for preconstruction work for an expansion. And Evergreen Culture Centre asked for $101,000 for capital projects, including $80,000 for a facility development assessment. Coquitlam city council is expected to give the first three readings of the 2014 budget on Dec. 2, with final adoption on Dec. 9. email@example.com
Coquitlam’s 2014 priorities: • Evergreen Line • Burke Mountain fire hall • covered dry-floor sports facility • Riverview visioning process • tourism program • expanded WiFi and cell networks • bailey bridge dispute resolution • major transportation upgrades • parking structure (business case) • solid waste collection contract • parks and rec master plan •YMCA partnership • sponsorship and naming rights • Burquitlam/Lougheed neighbourhood plan • housing affordability strategy • industrial zone update
PoCo residents can listen to budget talks Port Coquitlam’s projects and services will be front and centre next week when the city’s departments present their 2014 business plans to council. The annual business plan presentations are one of the first steps in developing the five-year financial plan that sets out city spending, activities and services. Each department’s business plan outlines its proposed services and projects to be included in the 2014 budget. “We’re always looking for ways to open up our processes to the public,”said Mayor Greg Moore.“We’re inviting citizens into the process earlier in the hopes of engaging more people and getting more meaningful participation.” The presentations will take place Nov. 18 and 19 in council chambers at PoCo city hall. The business plans will be posted at www.portcoquitlam.ca/budget on Monday. The public can also attend council’s Finance and Intergovernmental Committee meetings Dec. 2 and 16, which will include discussions about proposed 2014 services and expenditures as well as the public consultation project. More information on the budget process as well as further details on the meeting times and topics can be found at www.portcoquitlam.ca/ budget. For more information, email budget@ portcoquitlam.ca or phone 604-927-5280.

Number of vehicle trips one point of contention continued from front page
Moore said he would rather see that number remain at 115,000 per day over the course of the plan despite expected population growth, absorbing the additional vehicle trips through other means, like bicycling, walking or transit. In order to maintain the current number of vehicle trips, Moore came up with his own targets. For example, the MTP calls for an increase in non-automobile transportation from the current 14% to 25% for all daily trips — a goal Moore said should be closer to 40%. He also disagrees with the targets set for transit ridership; the MTP hopes to see transit use increase from 4% to 10% while Moore believes the goal should be 15%. “Moving to alternative modes of transportation is very important for both the quality of life in our community and for the environment,” he said. “I don’t think this plan took a strong enough vision or approach to how we are going to do that.” Some of the infrastructure projects also concern
“Moving to alternative modes of transportation is very important for both the quality of life and for the environment.”
“That is the good thing about [the Master Transportation Plan]. It does leave it open so we can make changes.”

the mayor. The MTP calls on the city of Coquitlam to build a four-lane Coquitlam River crossing at Lincoln Avenue, a goal Moore vehemently opposes. While another crossing is necessary, he said he would oppose a move to widen the road and include it in the region’s Major Road Network.
Moore’s opposition and suggested alternatives did not stop council from voting in favour of endorsing the plan Tuesday evening. Coun. Glenn Pollock, chair of PoCo’s transportation solutions and operations committee, supported the plan, although he said he agreed with many of the points Moore made. He noted that
while the MTP will guide the city’s transportation decisions for the next 30 to 40 years, it will be frequently reviewed and adjusted. “That is the good thing about it,” he said. “It does leave it open so we can make changes.” “I think it is going in the right direction,” he added. With the Evergreen Line set to open in the coming years, Pollock added it is important for PoCo to maximize its connections to the rapid transit line. And he likes the fact the plan includes the addition of a Lincoln Avenue crossing, which will connect the municipality directly with an Evergreen Line station in Coquitlam. PoCo’s MTP also requires the province to step up with transit and road funding, Pollock said. The addition of buses, the extension of the Evergreen Line and upgrades to the Mary Hill Bypass are all included in the plan and would require funding from higher levels of government, he said.

Extend Evergreen: PoCo The Tri-CiTy News
Port Coquitlam will lobby the provincial government for an extension of the Evergreen Line as part of the 30- to 40-year Master Transportation Plan (MTP) council approved Tuesday. A lack of rapid transit to the municipality is a significant barrier to achieving the city’s goals of increasing non-auto transportation from 14% to 25% over the next three to four decades, the document said. Dave Currie, PoCo’s manager of transportation, told The Tri-City News that working with neighbouring municipalities, regional government and the province is crucial to the plan’s success. “We have engaged with those service providers — TransLink, the [Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure] — throughout this process,” he said. “They have been part of our advisory group and... we have engaged with them in the development of this plan.” An Evergreen Line extension is not the only plank in the plan that will require co-operation from higher levels of government. The expansion of West Coast Express service to off-peak hours and weekends and the implementation of rapid bus service along the Lougheed Highway corridor are important components of the plan that will require provincial funding. Upgrades to the Mary Hill Bypass, a provincial highway, are also called for in the MTP in anticipation of an increase in vehicle traffic due to improvements along Highway 1. Working with municipal neighbours will also be required in order for PoCo’s transportation plan to be successful. A key plank in the document is the construction of a Coquitlam River crossing at Lincoln Avenue, an initiative that would be funded by the city of Coquitlam. But there are shortand medium-terms com-
ponents of the MTP that the city can enact on its own. Land use decisions are key, Currie said, noting that four neighbourhood centres have been identified as core commercial and mixed-use areas: downtown, Westwood, the Dominion Triangle and the north side. Building compact communities will make residents in those areas less reliant on automobiles, he said, adding that im-
proving neighbourhood walkability is also a priority outlined in the MTP that the city can address on its own. The plan calls for expanding sidewalk coverage, starting with high-traffic areas and expanding to other parts of the city over the course of the plan. Much of the cost, Currie notes, would be taken on by developers. Several bike connections have also been identified in the MTP, includ-

ing a trail from Wilson Avenue to Broadway Street that would connect the bike lane crossing the Coast Meridian Overpass with PoCo’s downtown via a trail along Kingsway Avenue. A signed bike route along Fraser Avenue, a new tunnel under the Shaughnessy Street underpass and a downtown-to-Westwood Street bicycle route are also identified as priorities in the plan.

Can you help ID suspects? Coquitlam RCMP is seeking three suspects believed to be involved in a break and enter at an apartment building last month. Surveillance images captured the suspects entering the building and police are now turning to the public to help identify the men in the picture. “Right now, there isn’t a whole lot we can get into,” said Coquitlam RCMP Cpl.

The robbery occurred during the day and Chung said it appears the suspects only broke into one unit in the apartment building; he did not say what had been taken.

■ WHAT WE THINK:
elcarra Mayor Ralph Drew is one of the voices raising questions about Kinder Morgan’s plan to increase the capacity of its oil tanker loading facility on Burrard Inlet so 34 tankers a month could be loaded compared to the current five. Although his village is across the water from the Westridge Marine Terminal, he is concerned about the impact a potential oil spill, no matter how small, would have on what is a vibrant marine ecology. He wants to impress on the international company that new species of snails discovered in the inlet, and the return of squid, are deserving of protection. What’s more, he wants the company to take a special interest in the area and not only guarantee that the best available technology will be used to clean up any spilled oil but that legacy projects will be established to enhance the environment further. Is this too much to ask Kinder Morgan as it prepares to ask the National Energy Board for approval to expand its facilities? No, and by asking the questions now, let’s hope Drew gets them answered.

Politics and perception, Canadian style AS I SEE IT Greg Knill
ast week wasn’t a particularly good one for politicians in Canada. What began with the summary expulsion of three senators over their alleged misuse of taxpayers’ money last week ended with a drunken rant from the admitted crack-smoking mayor of Canada’s largest city. The Senate scandal crawled to an uninspired end after dominating headlines for weeks. All but one Conservative senator voted to expel the three but not before enough muck had been thrown to spatter both the upper and lower houses. Aside from the allegation of spending impropriety and outright fraud, there were counter claims that the office of the prime minister
— and Prime Minister Stephen Harper himself — knew more than it was saying. Adding to the debate were accusations the federal Conservatives were running roughshod over judicial process by expelling the senators before an official investigation into their conduct was complete. Harper, who evidently believes that what the prime minister giveth can be taken away, was unrepentant in his handling of the mess. At the Conservative annual convention in Calgary, he rejected any and all criticism. Not all Canadians were as confident in his rectitude. But just as Tory senators swung the axe (taking out some of the sting by allowing the ousted trio to keep their medical benefits), the story was bumped from the front page. It was replaced by the train wreck that is Toronto Mayor Rob Ford.

“The vast majority of people in public office are honourable and dedicated to the well-being of their constituents.” Greg Knill After months of denying the existence of a video purporting to show the Toronto mayor smoking crack, the video emerged. The initial angry denials were soon replaced by an admission and an apology — lots of apologies. But no sooner had the late-night talk show hosts warmed up their monologues, another video emerged, this one showing Ford in an apparent drunken rage. More apologies.
Coincidentally, Ford’s travails came as Montrealers were electing a new mayor to replace the one who had left under a cloud of corruption allegations after replacing another who had left under a cloud of corruption allegations. All this, of course, has little impact on the Lower Mainland, except to fill the evening newscasts. But it does colour (or confirm) our perception of politics and public life. And that is unfortunate. The vast majority of people in public office are honourable and dedicated to the well-being of their constituents. But like the plane that lands safely, the politicians and public servants who do their job well never make the headlines.

playoffs by Saskatchewan. But we’re over that already. We would be excited had the Lions won but the CFL makes fans appropriately philosophical. Nine teams, a summer start, a November finish — not exactly a football odyssey. We can be fans without being disciples. The Rider Nation gets to go nuts for a week about a Grey Cup in Regina. And while they try to figure out how to get green smoke to puff out of a green hard hat, the rest of us are blasé about the whole thing — “Call me when the Grey Cup’s on, we’ll come over for some munchies.” And that’s a healthy attitude towards sport.The CFL doesn’t produce football widows or devour every Sunday afternoon for six months. Don’t get me wrong, I also like watching NFL games. But it’s often two yards and a cloud of dust. Were there equal hype surrounding it, I think many would prefer the wide open, CFL game. The CFL plays a more thrilling game and is a healthy downsizing of football hype and schedule. And the season culminates with the Grey Cup, a wonderful, somewhat hokey afternoon when Canadians get together, eat junk food and intermittently watch a football game.
FL hype may be hard to resist but good old CFL games are better to watch. Canadian football is simply more exciting than National Football League brand and rule differences make it easier to watch and understand, even if one knows little about the gridiron game. An extra player, one less down, a larger field and no man-in-motion rules dictate that CFL teams stress speed and the passing game. A more exciting kicking game and stop time in the final minutes also make CFL games high-scoring shootouts that encourage last-minute comebacks. But besides having a more exciting game, the Canadian Football League offers a significant compromise to the religion that is the National Football League. The CFL allows us to share the odd game without having to paint our faces orange or roar like a Lion on command. My wife and I sometimes go to a Lions game but she won’t submit to unrelenting NFL Sunday hype, especially when NFL hysteria can almost smother the Christmas season. Our beloved Lions sucked in Sunday’s western final, pounded and bounced from the Grey Cup

Info versus knowledge The Editor, Re. “Science loses ground to superstition in info age” (BC Views, The Tri-City News). Tom Fletcher’s column hit on a subject that has bothered me for some time. Maybe it is the media’s preoccupation with eyeballs but it seems to me that we are getting a lot of media output that gives faux reality the same weighting as scientifically tested data. We, the public, are still untrained in appreciating the truth free-for-all that the digital world has dumped on us and our educational system is not yet set up to notch up student’s B.S. meters. Thus we get public support for almost any conspiracy theory or economic myth, whether scientific or social. This means we see the repeated return of the global warming Chicken Little performance; the never-ending suggestions that more health care spending will solve our health care issues; that everyone needs a university degree regardless of what it is; that science is usually wrong in the long run; that money obtained from another level of government is free; that“they” are the cause of all my problems; that we do not really need oil to maintain our current life style. Fletcher has a deserved reputation for telling it how it is. Keep it up. Jim Knock, Esquimalt

Kinder Morgan chief pumps Divorce pipeline at Chamber event It often means more than just the end of a marriage.
Before you make any decisions, ensure that you understand your rights and obligations.
By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News
The president of Kinder Morgan Canada took the opportunity to promote the economic benefits of the company’s $5.4 billion Trans Mountain pipeline twinning project before a friendly audience of business leaders at the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce. But Ian Anderson admitted his bigger audience is the broader community that will need to come on side if he is to fulfill the vision of creating a larger conduit to get Alberta oil to foreign markets. And so far, the message is gaining traction among Canadians who
appreciate the need for a strong economy, Anderson said in an interview because more people understand that creating a “world class” medical system, education and infrastructure requires economic generators such as the pipeline and tanker facility expansion. “As a trading nation, we have to get [our resources] to market,” Anderson said. On Thursday afternoon at the Executive Inn in Coquitlam, Anderson shared a similar theme as he outlined how local suppliers could win business and local jobs would be created by the project if it wins regulatory approval. Among the benefits
he touted were $500 million in incremental property taxes over 20 years, including a doubling of tax revenue to the city of Coquitlam for 7 km of pipeline, amounting to about $400,000 a year, plus $1 billion in provincial taxes and revenues and $1.2 billion in federal taxes. “The reality is [these projects] translate down into goods and services for our society that we all appreciate and value,” Anderson said. On the jobs front, he said over 20 years, the project would create 108,000 person years of employment, with jobs in welding, electrical, pipefitting, site preparation and administration. Although he admitted

he is concerned about climate change and the world’s reliance on fossil fuels, Anderson reiterated that a strong economy is necessary to develop technological solutions to these problems. As for the potential risks and hazards that come with tripling the
pipeline capacity, enhancing tanker loading facilities to permit a tanker a day to load oil before being towed out of Burrard Inlet, the public will learn more when the company files its formal application with the National Energy Board in December.

Coquitlam meeting set to address HandyDART beefs By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News
Unionized bus drivers are holding a meeting next week in Coquitlam to discuss issues with HandyDART, the doorto-door shared ride service for the elderly and people with physical limitations. At the Nov. 23 meeting, members of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1724 will be talking about TransLink’s pilot program to use cabs on some inefficient routes instead of HandyDART buses.

person said the switch to cabs on some underutilized routes will enable the transportation authority to serve more customers. In April, TransLink moved to reduce HandyDART service by 10,000 hours in favour of taxi subsidies to save money and allow more trips with the same outlay of cash because buses aren’t always full. According to a backgrounder, taxis are already used for more than 20,000 H a n d y DA R T t r i p s a year and the pilot is ex p ected en able

White Rock and Surrey, where only a few customers may be using the service and taxis are considered more efficient. But the union says the switch has resulted in fewer jobs while HandyDART service continues to be stretched thin. The meeting is a chance for people to discuss their concerns, said Steve Campbell, a HandyDART driver and member of the union’s political action committee. “It’s a place for people to vent,”he said. Politicians and user groups have been invited to the meeting, as has union president Bob Chitrenky. A TransLink spokes-

But the union says with the heavy demand for service, it doesn’t make sense to lay off drivers, which Campbell said occurred when the pilot began, with fulltime posts returning to casual. “People are looking for buses and there’s just not enough on the road,” Campbell said. The meeting will be held at Coquitlam’s Dogwood Pavilion on Saturday, Nov. 23 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.

Council approves renovation work at Mary St. building By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy NewS
Canada Post is moving forward with plans to deliver a major upgrade to its Port Moody sorting facility. Port Moody council on Tuesday granted a development permit to allow for renovation work at the facility at 45 Mary St. The development permit and accompanying
such a retrofit.” The development plan was first presented to council in 2007 but work on the project never proceeded despite Canada Post being granted the necessary approvals. “The last few years, I think they considered moving — in fact, I had heard they were moving at one point,” said Mayor Mike Clay. “Clearly, the world of post is changing. I’m sure they had a lot of uncertainty and now they’ve decided to go ahead and do a bit of an upgrade there.”
Council did voice some concerns over allowing access to the facility off Spring Street, which contravenes the long-term goals for the area set out in the official community plan. “There’s access off of Spring Street that we need to maintain for those businesses to survive,” said Clay. “Until the grand plan comes and we redevelop the whole neighbourhood, we need to make sure that people are able to access their businesses.” email@example.com
City approves youth scholarship $1K would fund post-secondary education By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy NewS
The city of Port Moody is making an investment in the community’s youth. Port Moody council on Tuesday supported a recommendation to establish a scholarship
for a local student, referring the matter to upcoming budget deliberations. The youth focus committee put forward the proposal to provide a $1,000 annual scholarship to one Grade 12 student for postsecondary education based on community service over the year. Potential applicants must be a Grade 12 student in Port Moody,
provide references from clubs, groups or organizations with which they are involved and submit a 300-word essay on why they would be the best candidate. Council also agreed to continue to provide the free use of municipal facilities to a number of user groups that have a no-fee agreement with the city. The groups identi-
fied in the recreation program and operations review are: the Glenayre Community Association; Glenayre Girl Guides; Glenayre Scouts; Pleasantside C o m m u n i t y A s s o c i a t i o n ; Pleasantside Scouts; Pleasantside Girl Guides; Play PALS; Can Can Dancers; and the Port Moody Rock and Gem Club.

Don an ugly sweater for 5 km run at Lafarge Lake By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News
Runners across the region will be donning their ugliest knitted garments when the Ugly Sweater Run kicks off at Lafarge Lake in Coquitlam next week. The Lafarge Lake run is being dubbed the Ugliest 5k on the Planet, and will take place on Nov. 23 between 2 and 4 p.m. It will feature holidaythemed stations and end at Coquitlam’s Spirit Square. Following the
run, the city will host its annual Light the Hall celebration, which will feature a visit from Santa. The run is the first of what the Now That’s Ugly Society hopes becomes an annual event and is an extension of the organization’s annual Ugly Sweater Christmas Party. What started out as a fun get-together at a Coquitlam house party 12 years ago has grown into a fundraising juggernaut that now annually sells out Vancouver’s
Commodore Ballroom. Jordan Birch, an organizer with the group, said the Lafarge Lake run will build on the society’s goals of raising money for charity and creating a memorable experience for friends and families. “It’s a lot of fun and it has the capacity to create a holiday season where people can get connected,” he said.“It attaches us to a cause that is bigger than ourselves at a time when there is so much consumerism.” Since the group
Artistic Director Dolores Kirkwood, OBC
started, the volunteers have raised more than $50,000 and hope to bring in $25,000 this year for the Children’s Wish Foundation. To register for the Ugliest 5k on the Planet or to find out more information about the annual Ugly Sweater Christmas Party go to www.nowthatsugly.com. You can register for the run online and the cost is $40 for participants over eight years of age. Those who register as a group will pay $37 per person. firstname.lastname@example.org

A: It’s a fact that caring for a spouse or elderly loved one can be overwhelming. However there are solutions available that don’t cost a fortune, and don’t involve moving someone away from home. If your loved one is experiencing a decline in health or cognitive abilities, a good first step is to visit their doctor. If the doctor sees that in-home care may be needed, you may be referred to “Home Health,” a service provided by the Fraser Health Authority. Home Health can assess what kind of service your loved one may be eligible for. This includes help with activities like dressing, grooming, and other personal care. Assistance with bathing, housekeeping, transportation, grocery shopping or preparing meals, may not be provided by Home Health. For this you can hire a company that specializes in caring for seniors at home. You don’t need a referral, and help with care is available for an hourly fee. This can give a busy family an affordable, caring solution, and help you keep up with the rest of life’s responsibilities. The important thing is there are resources available, and sometimes just a little extra help can make all the difference in the world. Need help? Nurse Next Door is an award-winning local homecare company dedicated to delivering responsive, caring and high quality companionship, home support, personal care, and skilled nursing care.

Still a sardine city despite OCP changes green scene Elaine Golds Green vs. grey in PoMo OCP
n response to community concerns, Port Moody council has now approved a slightly revised draft official community plan (OCP), which will be the subject of public input at a town hall meeting on Nov. 27 at 7 p.m. in the Inlet Theatre. Last spring, Port Moody residents stridently objected to plans to add more highrise towers and hugely increase the population of the city. The latest draft of the OCP has removed some of the more controversial towers but has added new ones, some of them in unlikely places. Sensibly eliminated from the new plan are towers in Coronation Park while the ones in Moody Centre near a new Evergreen Line station have been downsized from 20 to 12 storeys. New ones, however, are now proposed in the newly named“Westport” area, including 26-storey towers on the southwest
An illustration of the proposed plan for Port Moody’s “Oceanfront District” next to Rocky Point Park. corner of Clark Road and Albert Street, the former Andrés Winery site and along Vintner Street. It’s almost like a game of whack-a-mole, with new towers popping up in surprising places. Sadly unchanged is the huge increase in projected population. By 2041, the population of Port Moody is still expected to reach almost 60,000 — that’s 20% greater than the 50,000 anticipated in Metro Vancouver’s Regional Growth Strategy. Despite

the addition of almost 4,000 people to each of the Westport, Oceanfront and Inlet Centre Station areas, plus another 6,000 throughout the Moody Centre area, the OCP continues to espouse the view that what Port Moody residents value most about their city is its“small-town character.” If this OCP gets approved, it’s going to be goodbye to that smalltown charm and hello, Metrotown. The changes proposed for the Westport area are
dramatic. This is an area immediately adjacent to a chemical plant, a highway and a noisy rail yard. It’s hardly the typical type of area thought to be suitable for upscale highrise towers. In addition, buildings up to six storeys are now proposed for steep hillsides along Charles Street that are clearly labeled as hazardous lands (i.e., prone to landslides) in the OCP. Threading its way through the proposed highrise towers in
Westport is South Schoolhouse Creek, which, despite scant public attention, provides vital habitat for spawning salmon.You might think this creek would merit special protection in the OCP, flowing, as it does, past several proposed 26-storey towers. Don’t count on it. In fact, two lots that the creek presently passes through before going under St. Johns Street are proposed not to be as protected greenspace but for six-storey buildings, which would leave no room for a creek — I suppose a culvert could be squeezed in. The proposed Oceanfront area just east of Rocky Point Park looks totally inappropriate, with an undetermined number of 28-storey towers next to an environmentally sensitive wildlife area. Many people believe this area should become mostly an extension of Rocky Point Park. What is strangely absent from essentially all the sites proposed for highrise towers are any details with regard to floor to space ratios (FSR), suggested percentage of site coverage or units per hectare — all which could sensibly limit the
size and number of towers as well as protect greenspace. To allow such details to be omitted from this OCP will only inflame the wild expectations of developers and make it extremely difficult to achieve any sensible limits to growth or adequate environmental protection. Also absent from this draft OCP — just like the first one — is any mention of areas where new parks would be created, where much-needed new playing fields could be constructed and where new schools could be built to serve the children of the proposed 20,000 or more new residents. Port Moody, already one of the fastest growing municipalities in Metro Vancouver, will fail to be a complete or liveable community without ensuring such amenities are created to meet the needs of future residents. With the Newport, Suterbrook and Klahanie sites, Port Moody now has a vibrant town centre. At least three new highrise towers are proposed along Barnet Highway in this area, which will be within easy walking distance of the Inlet Centre Evergreen Line station. While this is possibly a
suitable area for a few more highrises, declaring Westport as a new area for highrise towers seems bizarre given that it is well over a kilometre from any station. The expectation seems to be that developers will be keen to finance a third SkyTrain station here. If so, residents should expect more towers in this area as well as even higher building heights to cover the exorbitant cost of another station. I hesitate to contemplate the green space and gracious heritage areas that would be lost from such a foolhardy decision. Sadly, I see little in this new draft OCP that will protect the environment, retain Port Moody’s small-town character and provide the amenities needed by future residents. I hope that Port Moody residents will attend the town hall meeting and share their views with council. And I hope that council members will keep in mind that 2014 is an election year.

Cadillac in the rear-view mirror of the European premium brands 2014 Cadillac CTS One auto trend that shows little sign of waning is the move towards more luxury or premium cars by manufacturers and consumers alike. As baby boomers age, they have earned the nicer things in life, and the offspring of baby boomers are getting used to the finer things in life, so more automakers are moving upscale. The Europeans do luxury and performance better than most and the Japanese luxury brands have been putting in their time to becoming a real force. But long before the Japanese, there have always been the American luxury brands, with many firsts in features and technology. Established in 1902, Cadillac is one of the oldest, along with Mercedes-Benz, and continues to be General Motors’ flagship in terms of refinement and technology. Looks The smaller Cadillac ATS was released a year ago and went on to win the North American Car of the Year award. General Motors has taken that platform and elongated it to produce the lightest mid-sized car in its class.

Verdict The price of the CTS ranges from about $51,000 for the base model to $66,000 for the top premium trim level. The Vsport, high performance model is priced at almost $75,000. The Cadillac CTS is not an inexpensive car, but it offers many features like standard heated and vented leather seats, Bose stereo and push button start even on the base model. Compared to some of the other mid-sized luxury sedans it is less expensive, plus it is a worthy car for any driving enthusiast.

shoulder checking, not using your signals, driving in the left lane when you’re not passing are minor details in the grand scheme of things, but have a large impact. It’s never too late to refresh the basics and then pick up a few new good habits. For example, if you look at any of the top athletes in their sport, they’re training most of the time. They’re trying to perfect their craft, even when they’re at the top of it. I doubt Sebastian Vettel slums around in his down time, even after winning his fourth consecutive Formula1 world championship. Sure, he gets a break, but he’s constantly training to be faster and stronger. In another interview, I chatted with Izod Indy race car driver Simona de Silvestro. She tells me that there’s really no such thing as an “off-season.” She says she trains all year long. In fact, she trains harder when she’s not always behind the wheel of a car to prepare for the upcoming races. If the pros do it, we should too. Some of the most fun I’ve had behind the wheel of a car has been at a driving school. Whether it was the three-day racing school at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with the Skip Barber program, or a track day at the Mission Raceway with Morrisport Advanced Driving, or even a track program close to you, it’s a win-win. If we’re all safer drivers then the chances of accidents are minimized and we can keep our vehicles dent-free longer. And avoid going through insurance claims. The few hundred dollars it takes to enrol is of infinite worth in the long run. Alexandra.straub @drivewaybc.ca twitter.com/cargirlsgarage

Perpetual driving improvement – you’re worth it B.C. race car driver Cherie Storms told me she was taking an advanced driver training course to appease her father’s wishes. She’d been putting it off since teenagedom. That said, her father is a race car driver and a proficient motorist, so you could argue it was an inevitability. But she had to find the desire in herself first. What followed, was something she didn’t think would happen. She recently took home the championship title for the B Spec series in her Mazda2 for the 2013 race season. She grew up in a motorsports household but it wasn’t until she actually got behind the wheel at the driving course that her mindset changed. “I was just overwhelmed with all of the technical aspects that it takes to be a good driver,” she said. It’s like what my Grade 12 math teacher always said, “Math is not a spectator sport.” The same thing goes for driving. We need to be an active participant, not a wallflower. Anyone who has taken advanced driving courses will know exactly what Cherie is talking about. It’s not just about knowing how to shift gears on a manual transmission without jerking the car, or parallel parking your sedan without curbing the rims. Driving is so much more. I understand this mode of transportation is a necessity for many. And it’s something done out of convenience rather than love. Kind of like laundry or grouting the bathroom floor tiles. Then again, for others, it’s a passion, myself included. Taking a specialized course, whether it’s a track day or a race school, isn’t just for wannabe racers. It’s for everyone. And we can all learn if we have an open mind. We read to keep our mind sharp. We walk/run/work out to keep our bodies active. We sleep to keep our bodies functioning. Why should driving be any different? Why shouldn’t we actively engage in making ourselves better drivers? Every time you get behind the wheel of a vehicle, there’s a possibility you can change your life or the lives of others — operating a vehicle is a huge responsibility. Poor driving habits, not

The
New active safety innovations included Attention Assist, which is a driver drowsiness monitor, Pre-Safe, a preventative occupant protection system, Adaptive High Beam Assist, which automatically dims headlight high beams, and an automatic emergency braking system called Distronic Plus. Attention Assist is a warning system that can sense a drop in driver attention level. It continuously monitors more than 70 different driver performance parameters, such as erratic steering behaviour, and will signal when it’s time for the driver to take a break. Four new E-Class models were added for the 2011 model year: an E350 4MATIC station wagon, E350 BlueTEC diesel sedan, and two convertibles, the E350 cabriolet and E550 cabriolet. At highway cruising speeds you can barely hear the E350 BlueTEC diesel engine, throttle response is fast (for a diesel) and pulling power (398 lb ft of torque from 1600 to 2400 rpm) is phenomenal. Engine upgrades followed in 2012. The E350 4MATIC got a direct-injection 3.5-litre V6. The E550 4MATIC got a 4.6-litre bi-turbo V8 and the E63 AMG got a 5.5-litre bi-turbo V8. All models also receive a revised transmission, electric power steering and LED licence plates. Even though owner costs tend to be
higher than average, the E-Class made Consumer Reports’ “Recommended” list of cars to buy and the E350 BlueTEC was singled out for special praise. If style, comfort and safety top your auto “wish list”, and you’ve got the money, consider the remarkable Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Prices vary depending on a used vehicle’s condition, mileage, usage and history. A complete mechanical check should always be performed by a reliable auto technician prior to purchase. bob.mchugh @drivewaybc.ca

Rodney is a two-time a winner! Vernon resident Rodney Knopp is our first Question of the Week Winner. We asked readers to tell us about a favourite car from the past and Rodney had no hesitation in nominating his old Fiat. However, it wasn’t the car but the back-story that captured our hearts. “In 1978 when I was in high school in Kamloops I owned a 1972 Fiat 2-door sedan,” Rodney explained. “I was keen on a girl in school, and one day she asked me for a ride. While driving and chatting, the muffler fell off the car. She laughed and ducked down so as not to be seen by anyone. “I dropped her off and she laughed some more as I drove away, as loud as the car could be without a muffler.” Young Rodney figured that was that but... “Catherine and I are now in our 30th year of marriage and still love how the car connected us!”

Tri-City residents can help the less fortunate by participating in Share’s Caring Neighbour program, a more personalized alternative for groups that wish to support a local family. Families register for the program based on need and basic family information is verified. Share does not further screen those families selected for a Caring Neighbour sponsorship. Registration to be a sponsor is already underway and ends Dec. 4. To sign up, contact the Caring Neighbour program assistant at 604-937-
6986 or email at christmas2013@sharesociety. ca. More information and guidelines are available at sharesociety.ca.
Share needs volunteers for the following jobs this holiday season: • Office assistance: Greet donors, accept and record donations at the front counter, answer phones, photocopy and other office duties. • Christmas hamper packing: Put together food hampers of different sizes (must be able to lift heavy boxes). • Food sorting: Sort food donations into categories; work Involves organizing food donations,
labelling and weighing food, lifting and carrying boxes, maintaining a clean work area and recycling boxes. • Truck drivers: Pick up food and toy donations, load and unload food boxes, ensure trucks are in good condition and assist with stocking and inventory. • Toy shop: Sort and process toy donations (this is a warehouse environment and does require some heavy lifting); volunteers are also needed to assist families during the Toy Shop visits. To volunteer, contact Heather at 604-931-2451 or email@example.com. More information: sharesociety.ca.
Last year, Share Family and Community Services packed Christmas food hampers at the former Andrés Wines warehouse in Port Moody. This year, Share has moved its holiday packing to a smaller space on the Riverview Hospital grounds and is asking people to donate cash or gift cards to support the holiday toy shop program because it doesn’t have the space to store toys. Gift cards will be distributed through the annual toy shop program now registering. (Share will still welcome toys this year for those who prefer to donate that way.) How you can help to support Share this Christmas: by making a financial donation; by contributing food for the holiday hampers or a children’s gift or gift card for the toy shop; or by hosting an event. More information can be found at www. sharesociety.ca or by emailing valerie.hutton@ sharesociety.ca.You can also donate on the website by clicking the Donate Now button.
Brekkie with Santa Breakfast with Santa is an annual tradition at Place Maillardville community centre in Coquitlam. And assorted elves are busy preparing for the December event. Vancity Job Club members are making treats for the bake sale, with all proceeds going toward two holiday baskets for local families. Club Bel Âge is helping Santa organize goodie bags. Rotary Club of Coquitlam is donating its time and culinary skills in preparing and serving pancakes and sausages. And more than 30 Place Maillardville volunteers and staff will sing carols, make seasonal crafts with little ones and spread good cheer. This community family event sells out every year so early registration is recommended. Breakfast with Santa runs from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 7 in the Heritage Room at Place Maillardville. Cost is $16.00 per family of four (for larger groups, add $6 per adult, $5 per child). For more information, visit placemaillardville.ca.
Environmental Assessment of the Proposed Eagle Mountain — Woodfibre Gas Pipeline Project Open House and Invitation to Comment FortisBC (Proponent) is proposing the Eagle Mountain-Woodfibre Gas Pipeline Project. The proposed Project consists of the expansion of the Proponent’s existing pipeline constructed in 1990 to serve the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island. The expansion includes the addition of an approximately 52km long 20 inch (NPS 20 or 508 mm) diameter natural gas pipeline from the area north and outside of the Coquitlam Watershed in the Greater Vancouver Regional District (Metro Vancouver) to Woodfibre, southwest of Squamish.
At this stage of the process, the primary intent of seeking public comments is to receive feedback about the information required and the scope of the studies to be undertaken in the Application. The information included in the Application Information Requirements will direct the Proponent’s efforts for a comprehensive assessment of the potential effects that may result from constructing and operating the proposed Project on the environmental, economic, social, heritage and health valued components identified within the proposed Project footprint.
In addition to the pipeline, the proposed project also requires additional compression at the Proponent’s compressor station at Eagle Mountain Drive in north Coquitlam and at Port Mellon north of Gibsons along with the construction of a new compressor station in or near Squamish.
All comments received from the public will be forwarded to the Proponent for consideration and response. When satisfied with the Proponent’s responses (that may require changes to the draft Application Information Requirements) the EAO will finalize the draft Application Information Requirements and issue it to the Proponent.
Ancillary facilities such as metering stations, mainline valves and temporary stockpile sites and equipment storage areas are also required at different points along the pipeline route.
The EAO accepts written public comments online, by mail or by fax as follows: • By online form at eao.gov.bc.ca
The proposed Project is subject to review under British Columbia’s Environmental Assessment Act. The Proponent must obtain an Environmental Assessment (“EA”) Certificate before any work can be undertaken on the proposed Project. However, prior to submission of an application (Application) for the EA Certificate by the Proponent, the Environmental Assessment Office of British Columbia (EAO) must first approve the Application Information Requirements.
• By mail: Environmental Assessment Office P.O. Box 9426 Stn Prov Govt Victoria, BC V8W 9V1 Attention: Josh Handysides • By Fax: Fax: (250) 356-6448
The Application Information Requirements document specifies the studies to be conducted and the detailed information to be provided by the Proponent in its Application. The EAO has now received the draft Application Information Requirements from the Proponent and invites public comments on this draft during a 30-day Public Comment Period, between November 15th, 2013 and December 16th, 2013. In order to be considered, your comments must be submitted during this specified time frame.
An electronic copy of the draft Application Information Requirements and information regarding the environmental assessment process are available at.eao.gov.bc.ca. Copies of the draft Application Information Requirements are also available for viewing at libraries and Municipal Offices in Squamish and Coquitlam.
The EAO also invites the public to attend two Open Houses related to this comment period to be held as follows:
A subsequent formal public comment period will be held during the Application review stage. The public will have the opportunity to assess how the information required in the Application Information Requirements was addressed by the Proponent in their Application for an Environmental Assessment Certificate.
November 16, 2013 1pm – 5pm Executive Suites Hotel & Resort 40900 Tantalus Road Squamish, BC
November 21, 2013 4pm – 8pm Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club 3251 Plateau Blvd. Coquitlam, BC
Note: All submissions received by the EAO during the comment period in relation to the proposed Project are considered public and will be posted to the EAO website.

BC Hydro’s contractor for the Interior to Lower Mainland Transmission Project will be burning slash piles this fall on BC Hydro’s rightof-way from Pipeline Road east to the Pitt River in Coquitlam (see map). This work is planned to start in November, weather dependent, and continue as needed through to the end of December. The contractor has obtained the necessary provincial and municipal permits and will comply with all regulations. A key requirement is that the contractor does not conduct burning unless the venting index is “good”. This ensures proper air movement exists to minimize smoke impacts to people in the vicinity of the burning. The 247 kilometre, 500 kilovolt transmission line currently under construction will expand the capacity of the system that brings power to businesses and homes in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island.

NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT
Three finalists chosen for RenoMe! With FortisBC contest By Kerry Vital
Three British Columbia residents are getting the chance to win $10,000 towards a room makeover with natural gas after being chosen as a finalist in the RenoMe! with FortisBC contest. Over 150 entries were received from all over the province, but the final three were narrowed down to Gayle Curtis of Maple Ridge for her kitchen, Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo for her outdoor space and Wendy Frose of Chilliwack for her great room. Designer Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. (SGDI) has taken on the outdoor space project, while SGDI’s Stephanie Malhas will design the great room, and Susanne Doise of Sensitive Design will handle the kitchen. In the next phase of the contest, the three finalists will receive renderings of their space from their designer, and then readers will vote on which one deserves the makeover the most. The room with the most votes will win $10,000 towards their renovation, while the second and third-place finalists will receive $2,000 each. Doise has consulted with Curtis, and has provided a rendering of how she thinks the kitchen could look once it’s renovated. “The kitchen is in bad shape,” says Doise. “I want to give her a better flow between the work spaces and the rest of the room.” Curtis calls her kitchen disgusting, gross and old, and says she’s tired of burning everything she cooks due to a bad stove, so Doise will be incorporating natural gas in the kitchen with a Viking dual-fuel gas range. “It’s a very simple way to use natural gas,” she says. Gas cooktops have long been popular with professional
chefs for their even cooking, precise temperature control and instant heat. Homeowners have increasingly been choosing them for their new and renovated kitchens alike. One of the concerns with the room is the lack of space. In order to combat this, Doise has suggested a movable butcher block island that can be pushed into the pantry wall to open up the space. She notes that currently, you can’t even open the refrigerator without bumping into the existing counter, and opening the dishwasher blocks you from doing anything else in the kitchen. “I want to bring in more light as well,” she says. “It will look more friendly and inviting.” She also plans to incorporate an area for the homeowners to work and study. “I want to make it multifunctional,” she says. Doise has considered the owner’s tastes as well, and would incorporate her likes and dislikes into the final design. “I want to make her happy,” she says. Malhas is similarly excited about her great room project. “People live in their space for so long that they get used to it and have trouble visualizing changing it,” she says. “I don’t have that emotional connection to it so I can see the potential in the room and suggest ways to fix it.” The current room is the main living area for Frose’s family, and it’s in dire need of an update. “Any time I can get into wood panelling is good,” laughs Malhas. “It will definitely be gone.” One of the biggest issues with the room is the current wood-burning fireplace, which isn’t centred in the room and makes for awkward

more energy-efficient and more convenient for homeowners. You no longer have to worry about power outages, since the fireplace doesn’t run on electricity, and there is no more waiting for your fireplace to heat up, since natural gas is available at the push of a button. There

She also plans to give the The space is currently only usable in the warmer months, so she’s hoping to be able to use it yearround if she wins the contest. Among the ideas Gallop has for the yard is a hot tub with an arbor above it. “That will give them a little bit of coverage and privacy,” she says, adding that the hot tub will be heated by natural gas. Gallop also plans to include an outdoor kitchen with natural gas barbecue and a natural gas firepit. A natural gas hot tub is a great idea for homeowners, with its consistent, fast heat and automatic safety shut-off controls for added peace of mind. Swimming pools can also be heated by natural gas. FortisBC notes that a natural gas barbecue can be extremely convenient for homeowners looking for fuel on demand, Sarah Gallop rendering as you’ll never have to deal Sarah Gallop of Sarah Gallop Design Inc. has envisioned an outdoor space with a natural gas hot tub, natural gas barbecue and with running out of propane natural gas firepit for Melissa Tolsma of Nanaimo. or charcoal. It also allows you to cook with different temperatures at the same time and control the heat more easily. It also burns cleaner than other fuel sources, making it good for the environment as well. FortisBC offers a energy calculator that will help you compare the cost of fuel sources and their energy efficiency, demonstrating that natural gas is the most affordable choice for homeowners. Find it at www. fortisbc.com/energycalculator. FortisBC natural gas customers are also continuing to benefit from some of the lowest prices in a decade, at under $4 per gigajoule.

Gallop’s design features several levels to define the different spaces in the yard. “The space looked disconnected before,” she says. “This gives (Tolsma) different zones in the yard while still being connected.” It also makes the space transition a bit better between the casual entertaining area, the hot tub and the rest of the yard. “It’s a pretty straightforward renovation,” Gallop says. “The homeowner will be very happy with it.” To vote, visit your local Black Press paper’s website and click on the Contests link.

Grow some winter colour with heathers IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter
W The TriCiTies inter flowering heathers are an outstanding source of colour in the Lower Mainland. The loss of all our lovely fall foliage often makes November seem far more bleak than other winter months. The fresh appearance of new heather buds, however, can really transform a dull winter garden into an attractive show place and with a little careful planning, you can stretch that colour from September until May of the following year. There are, however, a few secrets to planting and displaying these colourful plants. One of the finest features of winter heathers is their ability to grow in areas where other plants have some difficulty. Certainly they perform well in good soil but they are also ideal for rocky, gravelly areas or sloping hillside gardens. Over the years, I have had the most success by preparing the planting hole with a 50% mixture of bark mulch and sand. Heathers will not tolerate heavy clay soils or wet feet but I’m surprised at how much shade they’ll accept. Although they are sun loving plants, heathers bloom just as profusely, perhaps a little bit taller, in shady locations. One very important feature to remember is the fact that heathers have hundreds of finely textured roots. Unless you moisten the rootball thoroughly and ruffle up the root system, your heather will probably
But the most impressive way to use heathers is to plant them as groupings in a bed by themselves. You may wish to mix in some summer blooming varieties as well. If you can blend a few colourful dwarf conifers, like ‘Blue Star’ juniper orange toned ‘Rheingold’ cedars and ‘Sungold’ thread cypress in with the heathers, you have the beginnings of a well textured planting. Add a few carefully chosen stones and some early flowering shrubs like viburnum TriCity Real Estate Section banners - 62p x 6p & 30p6 x 9p6 ‘Pink Dawn’, corylopsis and Chinese witch Filed: PoCo Editorial, Editorial TC, 9-banners-art etc., Real Estate Banners hazel (newand 2013) you will have a beautiful winter flowering floral bed around your home. A few spring blooming bulbs and summer evergreen perennials, blended into the bed, will make an outstanding display during the spring and summer months as well. A wide range of heather varieties are available but the old favourites are still the most in demand. For a good white variety, try ‘Schneekuppe’ and ‘Springwood White’. My choices for pink varieties are ‘Wintersoone’, ‘Rosalie’ and ‘March Seedling’. My favourite varieties are the get into trouble fairly quickly. A rootbound 24-inch centres.

Gunners taking aim at first place
RobeRt McDonalD photo
Mia Bottrill races for the finish line in the girls 15 and over 200-metre medley relay during last weekend’s Hyack Fall into Finals swim meet at the City Centre Aquatic Complex in Coquitlam. Bottrill, along with teammates May Li, Sara Whelan and Elaine Lam, finished in third place for the event.
O’Brien snags silver at world championships Coquitlam’s Tamara O’Brien struck silver at the world trampoline and tumbling championships in Sofia, Bulgaria. O’Brien joined Corissa Boychuk of Airdrie, Alta and Calgary’s Lexi Giesbrecht to combine for a score of 102.200 in the women’s double mini team finals. The United States won gold with 104.400 points and Russia took the bronze with a score of 101.600. “My warmup wasn’t that great and I was really nervous,” said Boychuk, the lone member of the team with previous experience at a senior world championship.
“ I w a s there t o lead o f f f o r o u r team a n d TAMArA O’BriEn I feel like I did that pretty well.” Boychuk, the 2010 women’s individual world champion in double mini has played an instrumental role in helping her younger teammates in their world championship debut. This is the first senior world championship for
the 17-year-old O’Brien, who placed 11th in the individual event for double mini. “We’ve got to watch the worlds when we compete at WAGs so I kind of know what I’m in for but it’s going to be totally crazy competing and really exciting,” O’Brien said before leaving for Bulgaria earlier this month. O’Brien will remain in Bulgaria this week to compete in the World Age Group championships, being joined by her teammates at the TAG Sports Centre in Coquitlam Kyle Carragher and Jared Khalifa.
O’Brien and Khalifa will both be competing in tumbling at the World Age Group championships, while Carragher will perform in all three events: tumbling, trampoline and double mini. Olympic champion Rosie MacLennan of Toronto solidified her status as the world’s best female trampolinist at the 2013 world championships on Sunday, winning gold with a well-executed routine bolstered by the highest degree of difficulty in the eightwoman final. It was MacLennan’s first gold at the world championships, giving her a complete set after
winning a pair of bronze medals and a silver at previous competitions. “It’s been a challenging week mentally and physically but I came into the final knowing it was my last routine,” said MacLennan, who competed all week with a pair of sore knees caused by a crash landing just over a week ago in training. “After the fall I had back home I just focussed here on taking one day at a time, focussing on each routine and giving everything I had. I figured if I had anything left in me after the final routine, then I didn’t try hard enough.”
Th e Po r t M o o dy Gunners have reeled off five straight wins following a slow start to the men’s premier league soccer season. Issac Mendoza notched his 13th goal of the season to help the Gunners snuff out SFC Temple United 4-0 Monday. Vaughn Andrews scored his sixth goal in five games for the Gunners who also got scoring from Russ Huggon and U21 call-up David Suh. Chris Lourenco got the shutout. Luorenco saved a breakaway a minute into the game on his way to a 5-0 shutout over SFC Guildford Saturday. Mendoza and Huggon each supplied two goals and a pair of assists with Andrews rounding out the scoring. After a 1-2 start to the season the Gunners have improved to 7-3 and will take aim at first place when they tackle North Delta Friday night. Th e C M F S C U 1 2 Renegades are in the midst of another modest winning streak two weeks after suffering their first loss of the season.
The Renegades b l a n k e d t h e Po C o Dynamite 1-0 Sunday at Gates Park in Port Coquitlam. Diana Emelianova recorded a clean sheet in the Renegades goal while Olivia Gallina converted a pass from Claudia Carbone for the game’s only goal. Carbone supplied the only goal in the Renegades’ 1-0 win over the Mission Hearts on Nov. 3. Emelianova kept Mission off the scoresheet. The U12 Poco Strikers went unbeaten at the WVSC Remembrance Day Classic in West Vancouver. Liam Wheeler scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win over the North Van Mavericks. Miles Rusk picked up the shutout. Rusk was again unbeatable in a 4-0 win over ICSF Roma. Jacob Brown notched a pair with other goals supplied by Nicholas Garofalo and Wheeler. Brown, Garofalo, Marco Bronfen and Matthew LewHenriksen provided the offence in a 4-2 win over the North Van Riptides. sports@tricitynews
Express return to ice
Hockey fans can expect plenty of fireworks at tonight’s matchup between the Coquitlam Express and Langley Rivermen. The BCHL-leading Rivermen head into the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex at 7 p.m. for their fifth game this year against their division rivals. The matchup between the two teams that have combined for a total of 35 goals in their previous four meetings features three of the BCHL’s top scorers. Coquitlam’s Adam Rockwood has a league-leading 24 assists and is tied with the Rivermen’s Mitch McLain for fifth in points with 28. Corey Mackin is second in rookie scoring with 25 points and his 13 goals lead the Express. Rockwood and Nicholas Rasovic will both rejoin the BCHL’s most potent offence after representing Canada West at the CJHL Prospects Showcase in Yarmouth, N.S. Rockwood notched a pair of assists for Canada West who fell to the Canada East squad 8-4 in the two game series.

Jennifer opened the scoring in the first half, finishing on a crossing pass. Early into the second half Jennifer started a quick counter attack by switching play through the midfield resulting in the game winning goal. Jennifer leads by example and this Centre Midfielder has a passion for the game, which is evident through her strong work ethic, focus, and team play.
