Cash for hatchery (and PM council) PoMo councillors vote themselves a 29% raise; mayor gets 16.5% bump By Dan Ebenal THE TRI-CITY NEWS

the current rate. The city had hired Sainas Consult Inc. to deal with the issue and the consultant’s report looked at council pay in the municipalities of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, North Vancouver, Maple Ridge, N e w We s t m i n s t e r, Langley and White Rock. The report found that the average annual salary in those municipalities is $35,314 for councillors and $90,995 for mayors. It suggested that Port Moody councillors’ pay go from the current $25,520 to $33,000 and that the mayor’s salary jump from $72,914 to $83,000. Council voted 6-2 in favour of the recommended increase for councillors but chose to increase the mayor’s salary to $85,000, $2,000 more than recommended, on a motion by Coun. Diana Dilworth.

Port Moody council members gave themselves an early Christmas present Tuesday evening. At a special meeting called so council could vote to contribute up to $10,000 towards the reconstruction of Mossom Creek Hatchery, which was destroyed by fire six days earlier, council also approved a sizable pay hike for itself. That vote — held with few members of the public present and no community TV cameras on hand — means councillors’ salaries will jump 29.3% to $33,000 a year while the mayor’s annual salary will go to $85,000, up 16.5% from

Bird needs cash to fly south for winter

Taylor Swift needs a ride to California. No, not the American singing star who can afford her own private jet. The bird named Taylor that needs a ride is a whitethroated swift that was found scared and starving on a sidewalk near Coquitlam Centre.

A Port Coquitlam woman’s elderly, arthritic dog will have a harder time getting around after someone stole a bike and an attached doggy buggy this week.

This tiny white-throated swift was found on a sidewalk in Coquitlam. The Wildlife Rescue Association of BC is aiming to get it to its destination: Southern California.

Laura Smith said Hunter, her Rhodesian ridgeback-basset hound cross, can only get around in the threewheeled buggy, which is red with black mesh zippered doors and windows. see WITHOUT, page 14

‘It’s just too much,’ says PM mayor continued from front page

Mayor Mike Clay and Coun. Rick Glumac voted against the raises. “It’s just too much of an increase. It’s a 30% increase and that’s not realistic,” said Clay, who suggested council phase in the salary increase over six years. Clay said he isn’t convinced raising council’s pay will attract better candidates in the future. “I think you might get better [candidates] if you didn’t pay any money at all,”he said. The list of comparable municipalities chosen by council for the consultant to review have populations that range from White Rock at 19,211 to Coquitlam’s 126,456. The average population of the municipalities included in the comparison is 63,642, nearly double

IN QUOTES

“What’s troubling is we are far below our peers in our base salary.” Port Moody Coun. Diana Dilworth Port Moody’s population of 34,567. “Those are the ones that they chose and I think some of them aren’t realistic to compare Port Moody to,” said Clay, adding West Vancouver has a similar population but its salary figures weren’t received in time to be included in the report. “I don’t know what their numbers were but I know when you added them in, it brought the averages down quite a bit so they’re obviously at or near the levels we’re at now,” he said, adding the last salary re-

view was done in 2008 and increases in council salaries have been tied to inflation or the consumer price index since that time. Dilworth said comparing pay based solely on population isn’t necessarily fair. “Do they work twice as hard as we do?” she asked, noting that she often spends more than 20 hours a week on council business. And while she gave no specific reason for making a motion to raise the mayor’s salary beyond the consultant’s recommended figure, Dilworth defended her vote in fa-

vour of the raises. “What’s troubling is we are far below our peers in our base salary,” she said. The mayor, meanwhile, defended the timing of the vote, coming at a special meeting of council when few members of the public were present. He said council asked the consultant to prepare the report in June and received the findings in the past month. “There was a desire on council to get it done before the end of the year, which we weren’t going to be able to do,” said Clay. “When we decided we wanted to do this thing for the hatchery, our staff came back and said we have the report from the consultant on the salaries if you want to bring that forward.”

$10k OK for Mossom Community has responded: Clay By Gary McKenna THe Tri-CiTY News

Port Moody city council unanimously voted Tuesday to give up to $10,000 to help rebuild the Mossom Creek Hatchery after it was destroyed by fire last week. Mayor Mike Clay told The Tri-City News last week the money would help the organization maintain its work for the next few months while plans for a new facility are being worked out.

“We want to help the hatchery get back on its feet and look forward to assisting in the planning to rebuild and maybe even enhance the operations, despite the devastation,” he said in a press release after the council vote. “The outpouring of support in our community, from residents and businesses has been tremendous, and we encourage anyone interested to stay tuned in the coming weeks for opportunities to help.” Firefighters were called to the facility at around 7 p.m. on Dec. 11 but icy conditions

on the access road to the property made it impossible for their engines to get to the building. Crews had to carry hoses the last 800 m to the site to pour water on the blaze. More than 110,000 chum were lost by the fire and incubation trays containing 56,000 coho eggs were also destroyed. Those who wish to help can contact members of the Mossom Creek Hatchery by going to www.mossomcreek.org or by emailing Elaine Willis at elaineawillis@gmail. com. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

$1,600 to move Taylor, the swift continued from front page

This young bird was brought to the Wildlife Rescue Association of BC’s care centre in Burnaby on Nov. 4 in bad shape and suffering from central nervous system trauma. Volunteers fed it mashed insects for six weeks and Taylor is now ready to be returned to the wild. The problem is, the bird is in the wrong place at the wrong time and needs a warmer climate to be able to feed itself and survive. “Ordinarily, the bird would fly with its flock,” explained WRA communications co-ordinator Yolanda Brooks, but it’s too late in the year to begin the 3,000 km flight to northern California, where it stands the best chance of survival. So a car trip was considered to get the bird to its winter home. WRA staff need to go along to hand-feed the bird and an airline trip is out of the question because the flight would be too noisy and the storage area too cold, Brooks said. To pay for transportation, gas, accommodation and food — an estimated cost of $1,600 — WRA has started Operation Taylor to collect donations. Brooks said it’s rare

Great Canadian gambles Hard Rock will pay off Casino co. ‘expanding our demographic’ By Janis Warren

PORT COQUITLAM

The Tri-CiTy News

Canada’s first Hard Rock Casino will open its doors tonight in Coquitlam. And the rebranded Boulevard Casino — which underwent a $15-million renovation — will likely be the city’s biggest tourism draw, attracting gamblers and popular music fans. Besides the 950 slots plus card tables currently available to gamblers on the 80,000 sq. ft. gaming floor off United Boulevard, visitors can get up close with rock ’n’ roll and country music memorabilia, much of it signed by the stars. More than 150 pieces are on show, including walls of guitars spanning six decades and a variety of musical genres, from the 1960s (the guitar Roy Orbison used on “Only the Lonely”) to 2012 (an acoustic that young star Taylor Swift played during her Grammy performance of“Mean”). There’s also autographed clothing, encased in glass, from Seattle legends Jimi Hendrix (a green and pink blazer) and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder (a wet suit) as well as the suit worn by Peter Gabriel in his “Shock the Monkey” video. Racy garments from Mariah Carey, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Madonna are also on display. But during an exclusive tour of the updated facility on Wednesday, officials had yet to unveil some of their most prized possessions, such as a 1960s rickshaw-type vehicle owned by Elvis, Woodstock wares and a special section dedicated to Red Robinson. Chuck Keeling, executive director of stakeholder relations for the Great Canadian Gaming Corp., which owns Hard Rock Casino Vancouver under a licence from Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, said the tribute to Robinson was placed prominently on the property to recognize the work of the legendary Vancouver DJ. This fall, Robinson’s name was taken off the show theatre as Boulevard Casino rebranded to Hard Rock — a controversial decision that prompted an online petition and drew the ire of crooner Michael Bublé, who opened Boulevard Casino in 2002 and had Robinson emcee his wedding. Robinson, who is also

he’s confident Hard Rock Casino Vancouver will succeed despite casino and entertainment competition throughout the region. “We’re not reliant on a single market,” he said, “because we’re going to be pulling in people regionally and beyond.” Keeling said a lot of time has been spent on getting the 700-plus staff ready for Hard Rock with the aim of improving customer service. “It’s very much a culture change for them,”he said. Great Canadian has no immediate plans to build an adjoining hotel, although it has already gone through city approvals; rather, the company is waiting to see how the rebranding will play out before it digs in deeper, Keeling said. As for its food selection, there will be seven spots to eat, including a steak house called Stake. But the famous Hard Rock Cafe, the chain of theme restaurants known around the world, won’t be attached to the Coquitlam venue as it’s a separate entity, Keeling said. jwarren@tricitynews.com

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside

■ WHAT WE THINK: ’Twas the week before Christmas and the bars, they were hopping hoping to catch patrons who’d finished their shopping. When all of a sudden, what should appear but B.C. liquor law changes for much cheaper beer. Old Mrs. Claus — or Premier Christy Clark — said, “Happy hours for all, kids in pubs — what a lark!” The chorus was merry,“Common sense!” went the cheer, let’s have another round of that much cheaper beer. And the tots on the bar stools, their eyes all aglow, were sipping their milk with parents in tow. “A small whiskey chaser with my ale,” Dad did sing, while dear, gentle Mom shouted, “Singapore Sling!” Then as soon as the clock sounded the chime, the kids and their parents knew it was time. They hopped in the Caravan while slipping a fiver into the hands of their designated driver. We heard the brood exclaim as they drove out of sight, “Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

Finding feeling of Christmas in cancer ward AS I SEE IT Daniel St. Andrews

I

t was the morning of Christmas Eve last year, and once again it didn’t feel like Christmas. I was having a coffee and looking at one of those family portraits and I got homesick. I missed my mom and dad and family, and those magical Christmases we shared together in Ontario. I missed not having that special feeling that I used to get every year. A couple of years ago, I bought a ton of outdoor Christmas lights and decorated all of the hedges, evergreens and fence. I had just finished cancer treatments and didn’t know how many more Christmases I would see — and was desperately hoping the lights would bring back that special Christmas feeling. They didn’t. So last year, I bought a Santa Claus outfit for a visit to BC Cancer Agency’s FraserValley

Centre — where I was treated and where I have been volunteering every week for the past 16 months — at Surrey Memorial Hospital. As I made my way through the various clinics, patients’ eyes would light up with excitement. I was hearing voices from all sides, things like“Hi Santa!”and“Merry Christmas, Santa”and“Hey Santa, can we get a picture of you with us?” Within five minutes, that special feeling returned and I was a kid again. I didn’t rush home and decorate the house with lights, though. In fact, within hours of leaving the centre, I lost the feeling, which made me sad. So, on the morning of Dec. 24, I decided to get dressed as Santa Claus again, and return to the cancer centre. As soon as I walked into the lobby, a woman ran up to me, pleading,“Oh Santa, could I get a picture with you and my mom?”I said,“Sure. Ho, ho ho!” The mother slowly walked towards me. She was in her patient gown and was wearing a

Christmas hat. I gave her a hug and posed for the picture, when her daughter suddenly said, “Mom, why are you crying?” I squeezed her closer and she stared up at me, with tears rolling down her cheek: “Because I never thought I would ever meet Santa Claus!” I kissed her on the cheek and whispered,“I will always be with you.” I toured the cancer centre and then walked down the hall to the hospital and took the elevator up to 51 North — the oncology floor. I had been a patient there several times during my cancer treatments, when I was at my lowest point. I walked into each patient’s room and wished them all a happy holiday. On my way back to the elevator, I noticed a Palliative Care sign over the entrance to another wing, where the very sick and/or terminally ill patients are. I walked into the ward and all of the medical staff were surprised to see Santa. After posing for several photos, I asked if it would be OK to

say hello to the patients. They replied in unison,“Of course you can — you’re Santa Claus!” I made my way around the ward, entering each of the rooms and holding the hand of each of the patients. I didn’t know what to say but what suddenly burst out of my mouth was “I know that you’ve always believed in me and I just wanted to drop by to say hello.” One patient — an older man wearing a Christmas hat — said he had awoken that morning excited with the hope that maybe a friend or family member might drop by for a visit. But none had… until Santa Claus. He held my hand for the longest time and just stared at me. He then muttered,“Thank you, Santa. Merry Christmas.” I turned to leave his room — I didn’t want him to see me cry. After all, he believed in Santa Claus. And now, so do I.

FACE TO FACE: For the last column before Christmas, they agreed to agree

Mandela, scandals and Xmas ’T

ANDY RADIA

JIM NELSON

is the season of peace on earth and goodwill toward persons. And because partisan bickering doesn’t go well with egg nog or figgy pudding, this week is a time for us to share rather than call each other nuts. Because beyond his dubious politics, my colleague has the same warm heart as those who agree with me. So, in the spirit of the season, here are some 2013 stories upon which we agree, as this week we walk arm in arm instead of standing face to face...

Following a tradition started several years ago, The Tri-City News’ duelANDY ling Face to Face columJim and I were both saddened nists Jim Nelson and by the recent passing of Nelson We agree that Madiba was Andy Radia are foregoing Mandela. a great world citizen who went from being vilified as terrorist to be their usual format for this, once now celebrated as one of the most influential leaders of our time. His their final column before life and his legacy should inspire Christmas, to write a com- citizens around the world to always fight for racial, sexual and cultural bined piece about topics equality. His actions should be a lesson for Canadians as we continue on which they agree. to struggle with issues such as First Nations’ rights and Quebec’s Values Charter.

JIM

Please send letters to the editor to newsroom@tricitynews.com.

That’s right, Andy, but as much as we are both uplifted by the legacy of Nelson Mandela, we were mortified and embarrassed by this year’s

MEMORIES

Senate scandal. Long a repository of failed political candidates, party hacks, ex-hockey players and homer journalists, recent scandals have only brought to the front burner what has been leavening for years: that the Senate is little more than political payola and a waste of wads of money. We’re also convinced that this scandal goes much deeper than has been exposed so far and that there are many more juicy Senate scandals aching to be uncovered. But, in the spirit of Christmas, we agree that perhaps further indictment might wait until after the festive season.

ANDY

Well said, Jim. Unfortunately, the naughty senators weren’t the only ones to bring Canadian politics into disrepute in 2013. Provincially, things like the BC Liberal government’s ethnic outreach strategy — when the Christy Clark crew was alleged to have used government resources to woo minority voters — makes us all more cynical about politicians and their intentions. And in Toronto, Mayor Rob Ford took his infamy to a whole new level this year with allegations of drug use, drinking and driving and ties to gangsters. We’re both thankful that we don’t have that kind of drama here in

Metro Vancouver. While we don’t always agree with their politics, B.C. mayors such as the Tri-Cities’ own Richard Stewart, Greg Moore and Mike Clay are honest, respectable folk who work hard for their constituents.

JIM

You’re right, Andy, our civic politicians are both respectable and respectful, proving that we can disagree without being disagreeable. And speaking of disagreeing, Andy and I were pleased to discover that we both disagree with those who annually claim there’s a“war on Christmas.” There’s no war on Christmas. Christmas is more widely celebrated by people outside the faith than is any other religious observance, and it’s because Christmas has a strong secular as well as religious message. The Christian message of Christmas is strengthened because the Christmas season offers a stable big enough to be shared with nonChristians. Instead of insisting that everyone put the Christ in Christmas, Christians should be proud that Christmas is so universally accepted by non-Christians. Santa, Christmas carols,“Seasons Greetings”and other secular seasonal trappings allow non-Christians to share the powerful Christmas message of peace, giving, family and love.

ANDY

Well Jim, I hope your holiday — ahem, Christmas — is filled with tasty food, good company and hearty laughter. It has been another crazy year and I’ve enjoyed debating international, national and local issues with you on a weekly basis. While your socialist slant is often starry-eyed and impractical, I know you aim to build a better community for us all — and that’s admirable. Merry Christmas to you and yours. I also want to wish a Merry Christmas to our loyal readers and to the staff at The Tri-City News.

JIM

Andy, it has been a privilege. Another year of incisive weekly repartee and bickering is almost over. It’s been fun and educational, as always. So Merry Christmas to you, too, my friend. I hope you enjoy the Christmas season with family and friends — and remember, don’t wassail and drive. And Merry Christmas and/or Season’s Greetings to any devoted Face to Face readers we may have — thanks for the constant feedback in the grocery store and the pub, and via email — and to The Tri-City News. Merry Christmas to all.

MP Moore should meet his neighbours The Editor, Re. “Moore is sorry for ‘insensitive’ comment” (The Tri-City News, Dec. 18) “Is it my job to feed my neighbour’s child? I don’t think so,”said local MP James Moore. Mr. Moore needs to come JAMES MOORE home more often and connect with his neighbours — constituents — most of whom work hard and struggle daily to feed their families. A. Williams, Port Coquitlam

APPALLED, NOT SURPRISED

The Editor, I am appalled at the comments by Tri-Cities MP James Moore with respect to child poverty. I am not surprised, though, as the policies of the government of which he is a member have been designed to further the interests of the 1%. Seen in that light, his comment — “We’ve never been wealthier as a country than we are right now. Never been wealthier” — makes sense, since the rich have been getting wealthier, albeit at the expense of the poor and the middle class. This is happening by allowing our economy to be changed from a manufacturing to a service economy with accompanying low wages. I would bet that the so-called lower joblessness across Canada consisted of low-paying, parttime or short-term jobs. Mr. Moore’s further comment about the definition of poverty shows how out of touch with reality he is. M. Guenther, Port Coquitlam

What’s it take to make a change? The Editor, This has been a bad year for pedestrians in the Tri-Cities. There have been countless news stories of close calls and unfortunate tragedies. To that point, I genuinely ask, what does it actually take for the average resident to influence traffic policy? What does it take for the average resident to persuade a municipality to install a crosswalk, stoplight or stop sign? It’s not an easy thing to do. In my experience, it’s a process filled with roadblocks and frustration, to say the least. I live one side of a very dangerous pedestrian intersection on St Johns Street in Port Moody. In less than two years, I’ve seen many, many close calls and one pedestrian accident. Although I have not witnessed them myself, my neighbours tell me of numerous fatal collisions that have happened in the vicinity over the years. I decided to try to take

some action and do the right thing but it didn’t work. An email didn’t cut it. Actually, several communications over months didn’t cut it — or warrant any response. After a pedestrian was hit, I escalated my concern and took it to the next level, directly to the city manager, council and department manager. To my absolute surprise, the city didn’t seem to care or take my legitimate feedback with any sincerity or action. You wouldn’t think it should be this hard. Perhaps the city is concerned about acknowledging liability? Maybe officials are afraid to make a bold decision, even if it is the right thing? I hope not. I ask readers, what does it really take to effect change in your community, particularly when it comes to public safety concerns? My experience has been discouraging and upsetting. People’s lives are at stake. Chris Carter, Port Moody

Without buggy, Hunter ‘can only walk a block or two’ parkade in the 2400block of Welcher Avenue in Port Coquitlam. Investigators believe the theft occurred overnight between Dec. 16 and 17. Smith said friends gave her the buggy last June after Hunter’s legs first started to give the dog trouble. She has owned the pooch for more than 11 years

continued from front page

“Without [the buggy], he can only walk a block or two and he has to turn around because of his arthritis,” she said. “If he has the buggy, I can push him along.” The bike and buggy were taken after someone broke into a storage room in an underground

and said he has a calming presence among the other animals that participate in her dog-walking service. “Any dog that is nervous, they walk next to him,” she said. “He gives them all a lot of confidence.” With the buggy, she was able to continue to bring Hunter along for

the walks but now he has to stay home, she said. Anyone with any information is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file number 2013-36877. Those who wish to report information anonymously can do so by contacting Crime Stoppers at www.solvecrime.ca.

2014 meeting calendar for Legal action against Thieves target Port Moody unlicensed dentist smart phones City Council By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

Equipment has been seized and legal action is being taken against a Coquitlam man who the College of Dental Surgeons of BC (CDSBC) said was providing dentistry services illegally. Vladimir Shapoval, who has never been licensed as a dentist in B.C., was under surveillance when investigators determined he had started an illegal practice at his home on Salt Spring Avenue in the New Horizons neighbourhood. With the help of police, CDSBC searched the home in October but only received permission from the B.C. Supreme Court on Tuesday to publish Shapoval’s name and photograph. CDSBC chief executive officer Jerome Marburg said despite the fact Shapoval’s home did not meet

A surveillance photo of Vladimir Shapoval. infection-control standards, a public health alert was not necessary. But he said patients put their health in danger when they seek dental help from an unlicensed person. “Anyone who sees an illegal practitioner puts themselves and their family at risk for bacterial and viral infections,” he said. “There is no assurance that the practitioner is competent or qualified to provide treatment or that the materials and equipment they use are safe.” Shapoval first showed up on CDSBC’s radar

gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Mounties are searching for three suspects after a spate of cellphone robberies in Coquitlam this month. RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung told The Tri-City News there have been four robberies since the beginning of December and descriptions of the suspects in each case are similar. “The suspects usually approach a victim and ask for the time,” Chung said. “When the victim takes out his smart phone to check the time, the suspects allegedly produce a weapon and rob him of his phone.” The first incident occurred on Plateau Boulevard at Whitepark Place and the second occurred along Walton Avenue. A third robbery occurred north of the City Centre Aquatic Complex and the most recent theft took place at the basketball courts at Town Centre Park. All of the suspects are described as males

seven years ago when a patient came forward with a complaint about treatment they received. After the college began legal proceedings in 2006, Shapoval agreed to an order that prohibited him from practising dentistry. Marburg said the file was reviewed following the investigation of Tung Sheng Wu, a man who was illegally treating patients at a rental home in Burnaby. After months of being on the lam, Wu eventually turned himself into police in Toronto and is now serving a threemonth prison sentence. On Tuesday, CDSBC also announced they would be taking legal action against another man who it alleges was practising dentistry illegally. Hua Zheng Huang is facing similar legal action after a seizure of dental equipment allegedly occurred at his Vancouver home in October. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

between 5’7” and 5’8” tall with slim builds; one is believed to be of Middle Eastern decent while a second suspect is black and the third is Caucasian. In most of the cases, a weapon was brandished and the victims were mostly young Asian or Middle Eastern teenagers, Chung said. “Although the suspects appear to carry out the alleged robberies against a certain type of victim in specific areas, we want everyone to be extra vigilant anywhere they go and call us if you see anything or anyone suspicious,”he added.

Donnelly stays a fed. New WestminsterCoquitlam constituents will have Fin Donnelly as their member of Parliament a little longer because the veteran politician said he won’t be running for leadership of the provincial NDP. Donnelly told supporters who asked during his holiday open house Wednesday that he wouldn’t be running for the post vacated by Adrian Dix and confirmed his decision to the media Thursday. Burnaby-New Westminster MP Peter Julian also confirmed he wouldn’t be running. “It came down to talking to my family and key supporters and deciding the best fit for me,” Donnelly said, explaining that the federal NDP stands a greater chance of forming government than ever before and he wants to be part of the team.

Coq. councillors’ new gigs in 2014 BCHL’s Top Team Comes to Town! Four of Coquitlam’s nine council members will carry the lion’s share of the workload on city committees next year. Last Monday, council appointed Coun. Craig Hodge to chair three committees (Maillardville revitalization, Riverview lands and sports council) and councillors Brent Asmundson, Terry O’Neill and Neal Nicholson to lead two committees each. Asmundson will oversee multiculturalism and sustainability, O’Neill will be responsible for Evergreen Line public art and Coquitlam River aggregate while Nicholson will chair arts and universal access-ability. Coun. Mae Reid will head the Celebrate Coquitlam advisory panel and Mayor Richard Stewart will be in charge of the strategic investment advisory panel. As for statutory committees, newly elected councillors Chris Wilson and Bonita Zarrillo will be responsible for the joint family court committee and parcel tax review panel, respectively. O’Neill will remain the city’s representative on the Coquitlam Library Board and will continue as chair of the city/school board liaison committee. The only 2014 appointments for Coun. Lou Sekora are as vice-chair to Celebrate Coquitlam and the sports council. Meanwhile, Coquitlam’s representatives at the regional table will stay the same next year. Earlier this month, coun-

cil appointed Stewart and Reid to continue to be the Metro Vancouver board members for the city. Stewart will hold four votes on the board while Reid will carry three votes. Council also nominated its elected officials for 2014 Metro standing

committees: • Stewart: housing; intergovernmental and administration; regional planning and agriculture; utilities; • Craig Hodge: environment and parks; • Nicholson: zero waste;

• O’Neill: intergovernmental and administration (regional culture); transportation; • Reid: finance; intergovernmental and administration (electoral area); • and Zarrillo: aboriginal relations. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Ever conscious of the increasing cost of gas and effect his multi-million-kilometre Christmas flight has on the environment, Santa seems to have opted for 2014 Ford Transit Connect Wagon for his next sleigh. The wagon promises a fuel economy of 7.84 L/100 kms fuel economy,which means the sleigh will be kinder to the environment than his current means of transporting gifts to the world’s children. As an added benefit, the EcoBoost engine – which is finely tuned for high-speed performance – would offer speeds much faster than Santa ever travelled in his former 36-hoofpowered sleigh. The expected upgrade comes as a record number of children earn spots on the “nice” list, increasing the payload weight of his bag of gifts beyond the normal tow rating of his nine-reindeer team. Santa told me that changing his mode of transportation will not compromise his ability to remain true to his mission. “My goal is and always has been

allow him to keep a close eye on his gifts in the second and third row. From its 60/40 three-passenger second-row bench seat through fold-flat second- and third-row seating with third-row independent fore-and-aft sliding capability, the wagon quickly adapts to accommodate multiple combinations of elves and presents. The MyKey programmable ignition key restricts maximum speed should a mischievous elf get behind the wheel while Claus is down a chimney leaving gifts. With eight cupholders, Claus and his elves would have plenty of space to take along a few glasses of milk as they continue through their busy night. Rain-sensing wipers would keep Claus on the move, as there’s always a chance he’ll encounter nasty weather. “As always, we are busy making toys and checking long lists,” says Santa. “That said, Merry Christmas to all!” Of course, Mrs. Claus will have the final say on this purchase because, as any dealership owner will tell you, women make the final decision in 80 per cent of new vehicle purchases. Keep your eyes peeled Tuesday night to see if Santa got his Christmas wish. keith.morgan@drivewaybc.ca

Mirage is basic but stingy on gas 2014 Mitsubishi Mirage Even though we have high fuel prices, the trend is away from small, fuel-efficient cars to larger vehicles. Subcompact and even compact sales are down but sales of small SUVs and even mid-sized vehicles are up. There are a couple of things at play here. The first is the stronger Canadian dollar over the last several years has allowed carmakers to jam more content into their cars and often the retail price has dropped too. The second is that vehicles are becoming more fuel efficient, so buying a slightly bigger car isn’t much of a hardship. With this as a backdrop, it is interesting to see Mitsubishi has introduced a three-cylinder fuel-saver at the smallest end of the market. Looks The Mirage is sold in two trim levels; the base starts at

$12,498 and comes pretty sparsely equipped. It’s a small car with a little price

tag. The much bigger Nissan Versa is cheaper at $11,898 and has buckets more power. The car that most people will choose is the Mirage SE with many more goodies but the price jumps dramatically to $15,398 and with the automatic transmission it lands at $16,598. At this price, there are plenty of options in the subcompact class. Styling is not what I would call eye-catching. Cars like the Ford Fiesta or the Kia Rio have much more appeal and features for similar money. Inside On the plus side, the Mirage SE does come nicely

equipped. The front driver’s seat has adjustment and both front seats have very good seat heaters that bring your backside up to the appropriate temperature in short order. The centre cluster is nicely finished and it features Bluetooth with streaming audio. There is an auxiliary jack but no USB jack to charge your phone. The back seat is small and the rear cargo area is what one might expect from a little car. But this vehicle does not live in a vacuum.

There is a provincial law that forbids drivers from entering an intersection if they can’t exit the other side (not for left turners, that’s OK). But many

Can there be anything much more frustrating than not being able to turn because some twit is blocking the intersection?

Power is the big issue continued from page 24

The Kia Rio, with more features, like satellite radio, is only $1,000 more and is way up on space and horsepower. The Nissan Versa Note is massive in comparison and for $1,700 more has push button start and even a backup camera. So yes, the Mirage is nicely equipped and has a good price but there are other options out there that are as good if not better. Drive What this little car was designed to do is deliver impressive fuel economy. This is achieved by placing a 3-cylinder engine under the hood and matching it to either a 5-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). With just 74hp, this car is way down on power compared to the rest of the subcompact set, even the Fiat 500 has 101hp and the Nissan Versa has 109hp. This combination of small packaging and small engine deliver a rating of 5.3L/100km in the city and 4.4L on the highway. In my mostly city driving I

was achieving 7L/100km. The problem with such a small engine is that it often needs to be pushed hard to accelerate and pass other traffic. The engine and CVT are loud, especially when the car is cold. The steering is very light for easy maneuverability but at higher speeds it feels too vague. This car is happy cruising because the engine settles down to a lower RPM and the noise level drops. Ask this car to perform and it’s an experience filled with noise and vibration. Verdict With a very low starting price and potentially good fuel economy the basic Mirage has a place for a buyer who wants a basic runabout that sips gas but if the trend away from small cars is any indication, that will be a small number. zack@drivewaybc.ca

Readers speak on speed Driveway readers have the final word on the posted speed limit poll, conducted in partnership with Insights West. In that survey it was revealed that 37% of those polled believe a higher than 100 km/h limit should be posted on our major highways. The provincial government current review of speed limits has already prompted much public discussion, much of which seemed to support the hiking of limits. With that in mind, we were surprised that the poll showed that 55% believed speed limits should be left alone. Here’s further reaction posted online by readers. For an increase in limits: • Kmac: Excessive speed, texting and using a cell phone while driving, driver inattention and driving too fast for the road &/or weather conditions kills. The minimal increase in the speed limits you suggest make sense • efi1936: I think that the Coquihalla should be 130

vehicle and surroundings and are very capable of handling the higher speeds. • DriveSmart: Maybe the new limit should be displayed on new variable signs so that it can be adjusted downward in darkness and poor driving conditions. • 28speedster: Here we are in the 21st century driving at the same or lower speed limits than we did with cars in the 1950s with bias ply tires on two-lane highways. New cars, tires, roads are engineered for much higher speeds. A higher speed limit will require drivers to pay attention to their driving.

However, if two drivers were driving side by side at 100 km/h there would be mass frustration and more accidents. • CaryAnn: I think the majority of drivers driving today are totally conscious of their

Comments against an increase: • Dwsolber: Some drivers have trouble driving safely at current posted speeds.

You brought new hope to breast cancer patients everywhere.

Increasing the speed limits will only increase risk to all road users. • Dick: Do not increase speed, what the heck is the hurry? (99 out of 100 already go way faster than the posted speed). Make your ride safe and enjoy the scenery. • Leah99: Wildlife (and domestic pets), pedestrians and vehicles driven by law-abiding people are put at risk by speeders as it is. • Donna: There are enough accidents at 110 without increasing the risks. • Snazzy: Speeds above 90km/h greatly increase fuel consumption. In addition to lower speeds being safer for drivers, wildlife, it is also important that we consider the planet, and reduce our use of fossil fuels. Rosemary: In B.C.’s interior, there are many hazardous roads and bad weather conditions, but drivers in general ignore them. If you ‘up’ the speed limit, they will ‘up’ the speeding... Whatever happened to safe driving? Like reducing speed at night when visibility is reduced? • Brian: People already drive 10 to 20 above the speed limit... if you raise to 120 they will go up to 140. keith.morgan @drivewaybc.ca

Time capsule is sealed By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News

Port Moody’s centennial celebrations have created a legacy that will likely still be felt when the city celebrates its 125 birthday. A time capsule was sealed at the Dec. 10 council meeting that will be opened on Dec. 10, 2038. “While the focus was on items to celebrate centennial year, the commission recognized there hasn’t been a time capsule that captured first hundred years,” said Coun. Diana D i l wo r t h , w h o chairs the city’s heritage commission. That led to the inclusion of items such as an old spoon, collectible pins dating back 75 years and a bottle of Crown Royal, the nickname of one of the city’s famed women of ill repute whose favours could be bought for a bottle of the Canadian whisky. City staff also got in on the act, submitting freezedried seeds and berries along with lists of at-risk animal and plant species. “So that, in 25 years from now, we can look to see if there’s been any change in those,” said Dilworth. The capsule will also contain a list of the city’s centennial babies, family photos and predictions from community members as well as a few surprises. The capsule will be stored in a glass display case at the Inlet Theatre. Dilworth said it was decided to preserve the capsule for 25 years so that many of those involved in Port Moody’s centennial “will be around to help bring that excitement back to the time capsule when it’s opened.”

Regular toll rates For the last year, as construction along Highway 1 has been wrapping up, drivers who registered early have been eligible for low introductory toll rates. In January, with extra lanes open west of the Port Mann Bridge and drivers able to save even more time, the low introductory rates will be replaced with regular toll rates. For drivers already paying the regular toll rates, there is no change. Tolls will stay the same.

LEFT: Grade 7 students at Coquitlam’s Queen of All Saints school will be giving away one pair of Olympic red mittens to someone they feel is in need this holiday break. The school also asked the students to include a prayer, note or other token in the gloves, wishing their chosen person a Merry Christmas while spreading the Christian spirit of giving, a spokesperson said.

A Coquitlam student received an early Christmas present with the news that he will be receiving a $36,000 scholarship to Mount Allison University. Liam St. Louis received the Bell Achievement Award from Mount Allison University in Sackville, NB. The entrance scholarship is one of the top awards at the numberone nationally ranked university. St. Louis, a graduate of Gleneagle secondary school, is studying international relations and economics.

An annual high tea for seniors at Port Moody’s Heritage Woods secondary drew nearly 100 participants — and Santa Claus. The Dec. 6 community Christmas event was organized by Rachel Leung, Rebecca Lee, Jaimie Jeon and Cathy Zhang. The afternoon festivities also included a Nutcracker dance performance and sing-alongs with the school choir.

The Heritage Cup will stay on the secondary’s soil after the Heritage Woods’ Kodiaks beat the Port Moody Police Department in the semi-annual hockey game last Friday. The fundraising event for charity that saw the Kodiaks win 7-3 over PMPD was organized by the school’s leadership class.

Our Coquitlam stories, preserved for all time Early Coquitlam residents recall the Fraser freezing

O

ver the last year, the Coquitlam Heritage Society has collected the stories of more than 40 long-term residents in a bid to preserve their knowledge about what life was like growing up, living and working in Coquitlam over the last nine decades. The stories were video recorded and, as of Dec. 3, have been inducted into the city archives. The earliest stories reflect life in a fairly rustic town full of the challenges of living along a river that froze solid in the winter and often flooded in other seasons. They reveal the many communities that make up the area, including Oakdale, Burke Mountain, Austin Heights, Maillardville and what is now City Centre. They include the memories of people whose families built their own roads, took stage coaches into New Westminster to shop and lived in a very multicultural community. As we endure what is feeling like an unusually cold winter, it is interesting to watch the videos and see how most interviewees remarked on how bitterly cold the winters used to be. Violet Johnstone talked about how the houses had very little insulation and recalled that when her mother mopped the floor, the water would freeze. Both Lloyd McInnis and Denis Wagner told stories of how boomed logs would freeze into the Fraser River. The ice would be so thick that workers would have to use dynamite to free the logs. Dynamite, by the way, was readily available and something boys as young as 10 would experiment with, whether they were removing tree trunks or just making a mess. The annual freezing of the Fraser River was enough of a national

safety concern that it spurred the Royal Engineers to design and build North Road. As Ella Benndorf tells it, there was real concern around the turn of the century that the Americans might try an invasion of Canada. Since the Fraser was not a reliable supply and ammunitions route into New Westminster (the provincial capital at the time), North Road literally paved the way to Burrard Inlet, a salt water body that did not accumulate ice. Burrard Inlet was used for more than just an emergency route, though. Chester Evans remembers that trees felled on Burke Mountain were so large that Fraser Mills didn’t have equipment large enough to cut it so a steam engine would drag the logs to the inlet, where they were boomed together and hauled to Seattle for processing. These tales are, of course, a small sampling and memories were collected in French and English. The French stories are still being edited and will be added to the archives in due time. All the completed videos will be available in the NewYear through Mackin House Museum, which is operated by the Coquitlam Heritage Society. Your History is a column in which, once a month, representatives of the Tri-Cities’ three heritage groups writes about local history. Candrina Bailey is with the Coquitlam Heritage Society.

Alzheimer info on Jan. 17 in PoCo Family caregivers supporting a person with dementia who is living at home can learn about services available to them during a workshop slated for Friday, Jan. 17 at Wilson Centre in Port Coquitlam. The by-donation workshop will run from 9 to 11 a.m. and is pre-

sented by the Alzheimer Society of B.C. The workshop will review strategies for accessing support ranging from family and friends to the formal health care system. The session will also consider some of the challenges that can arise when making the decision to access

services and support, and will offer strategies for working with service providers and acting as an advocate. Pre-registration is required by calling Kim or Lori at 604-298-0782, or emailing kmckercher@alzheimerbc.or or lkelly@alzheimerbc. org.

Minimizing HOME IMPROVEMENT SPECIALISTS winter damage COUNTERTOP BUSINESS OF THE WEEK

& CABINET DOOR

IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter Drainage one key for plants in winter

T

hanks to La Niña, our winter so far has been milder and drier than usual. However, winter doesn’t end until March 20, so there could still be a real possibility of challenging weather ahead. We all have unhappy memories of the severe cold at the end of last February. The good news is we can take some steps to minimize the affects. The first suggestion I would like to make pertains to hardiness. Most of us know which hardiness zone we live in and should therefore be planting only those plants which will tolerate that zone. Certainly slight variations will exist but as a rule of thumb, most of the plants zoned for your region will take the worst most winters have to offer. If you don’t know your zone, you can easily find out from a local nursery. GreaterVancouver is generally rated zone 7 but near the ocean it’s more a zone 8 and as you move east through theValley, zone 6 is the norm. From experience,

however, I know that no gardener worth her or his salt pays much attention to zones.Virtually all gardeners set out plants they know are not hardy in their region but they insist that with a little extra protection these plants will survive. Unfortunately, that protection is not always applied until it’s too late. There are, however, some techniques that can add a few degrees of hardiness to many plants. One thing I noticed after an early November cold spell three years ago was that plants growing in very well-drained sandy soil survived the cold with the least amount of damage. It seems that if a plant’s roots have had to work harder for moisture and food, the plant is tougher and stops growing earlier in the fall. As a consequence, its branches and buds become dormant earlier, preventing severe damage from the cold.These plants also tend to stay dormant longer and suffer far less root damage because with a lower moisture content, the soil is not moved about so much by the frost. Planting all your plants, particularly the softer ones, in well-drained sandy loam is a sure way to toughen them up.

National SAM Award nominees announced CMHC makes its predictions for 2014 By Kerry Vital

As 2013 comes to a close, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation is looking to the year ahead. “This is an unprecedented time of low and stable interest rates,” says Carol Frketich, CMHC BC regional economist. She notes that she expects this trend to continue, keeping the Lower Mainland housing market strong. “Our ties with Asia bode well for our outlook,” says Frketich. “Currently the top four migration countries are China, India, the Philippines and Korea.” She also notes that businesses are increasingly investing in B.C., keeping the economy strong and bringing new jobs to the area in many sectors. She states that skilled workers are the second largest group of immigrants coming to British Columbia, with most settling in the Lower Mainland. First-time buyers are also expected to increasingly enter the market in the next few years, though in an older age bracket than in the past.

The Fraser Valley is becoming a market leader in home starts and sales, and the CMHC expects this to continue in 2014. However, unlike in Vancouver, single-family homes make up the bulk of the sales. “People still want land,” says CMHC Market Analyst Richard Sam. “Fiftyfive to 60 per cent of sales this year were single-family homes.” In contrast, the majority of sales in Vancouver were multi-family homes. “The benchmark for single-family homes is decreasing,” says Lance Jakubec, CMHC Senior Market Analyst. Sam also notes that Surrey has seen the largest increase in population growth in the Fraser Valley, followed by Abbotsford and Langley. The type of home isn’t expected to change in the new year though. “All markets are growing at a similar rate,” says Jakubec, naming condominiums, townhomes and single-family homes as the markets. “We see moderate increases in new construction in 2014,” he says. Living in the Lower Mainland has its benefits, and much of that is the reason behind growth in most cities. “Vancouver is consistently ranked as one of the most livable cities in the world,” says Neil Chrystal, president and CEO of Polygon Homes. “Buying conditions have never been better.”

The Canadian Home Builders’ Association has announced the finalists for the 2013 CHBA National SAM Awards, which celebrate excellence in new homes, renovations, technology, construction, presentation and marketing nation-wide. Among this year’s finalists are eight Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association members, in 13 categories. Adera Development Corporation has been named in four categories, including best Multi-Family Project, the Community Development Award and best Brochure/Kit. They are also in the running for a Grand SAM Award, which honours a builder for both excellence in building and marketing new homes. Concert Properties is also a finalist in four categories: best Multi-Family Project, best Project Signage and Logo, the Marketing Excellence Award and the Grand SAM Award. TQ Construction follows with three nods for best Kitchen, best renovation Any Room and best Whole House – More than $500,000. Portrait Homes and Solterra Development are in the running for two awards, for Single Detached Home Between 1,500 and 2,200 Square Feet and the Community Development Awards, and best Direct Promotion and the Marketing Excellence Award, respectively. Eurohouse Group, reVISION Custom Home Renovations and Upward Construction and Renovation each received one nomination. Eurohouse Group is a finalist in the Single Detached Home over 4,000 Square Feet category, while reVISION is a finalist for their Whole House – More Than $500,000 renovation. Upward has been named a finalist for the Single Detached Home between 2,500 and 4,000 Square Feet. The awards will be presented at the CHBA’s 71st National Conference on April 4, 2014, in Whistler.

Ravens rebound at Alberta tournament Blue Devils rule Guildford Park tournament By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News

The Terry Fox Ravens used a dramatic fourthquarter comeback to snare bronze at the REB Invitational Jasper Place Basketball To u r n a m e n t in Edmonton over the weekend. A sluggish start left the Ravens down 10 points to Edmonton’s No. 2-ranked Bishop O’Leary in the bronzemedal game. “The starting five got back in the lineup in the fourth quarter and locked O’Leary down on the defensive end, giving up only nine points in the quarter,” s a i d R ave n s c o a c h Steve Hanson. Grade 11 guard Andy Seo found his range from downtown in the final four minutes, hitting three clutch threepointers to lift Terry Fox to a 68-64 win. The No. 9-ranked Ravens were relegated to the bronze-medal game following a 10287 loss to Harry Ainlay, Edmonton’s top-ranked team. “Ainlay came out firing on all cylinders hitting 5 straight 3’s to open the game and build an early 23-10 lead,” said Hanson. “Fox closed the gap to 46-41 at halftime, but Ainlay’s relentless shooting performance couldn’t be stopped.” The Ravens opened the tournament with a pair of wins over St. Mary’s from Calgary a n d To r o n t o ’ s S t . Andrews College. Grade 11 point guard Jomari Reyes was selected as a first-team all-star for his steady play while Seo was the tournament’s hot

hand, hitting 19 of 29 from three-point range. Grade 11 guard Liam Hancock topped 30 points in a pair of games with Grade 12 centre Matt Cooley dominating the boards in all four games, posting a double-double for points and rebounds in each game. The Gleneagle Talons squared off with some of B.C.’s best to tune up for their home tournament this week. Th e Ta l o n s h e a d e d t o L a n g l ey last week for the Candy Cane Classic a t Wa l n u t G r o v e . G l e n e a g l e k n o c ke d off the Cowichan Thunderbirds 60-45 and upended the S e m i a h m o o To t e m s 73-35 before losing 76-56 to the host Walnut Grove Gators, the top-ranked team in the province. “I thought they played really tough and gutsy, probably the best effort we’ve had collectively in the sense of just trying to execute what we’re supposed to be doing,” said Talons coach Tony Scott. The No. 3-ranked Talons wrapped up their weekend with a 64-53 win over the province’s No. 2 team, Surrey’s Tamanawis Wildcats. “What happened with the rankings is we’ve been fortunate to move up because people above us have been losing. It’s a natural progression, if you don’t lose you stay where you are or move up,” said Scott. The Charles Best Blue Devils found their form in the fourth quarter to shade the Steveston-London Sharks 85-82 and win the Guildford Park Tournament last weekend in Surrey. “ We w e r e d o w n 20 points in the third quarter but came all

the way back to win,” said coach Sam Yu, who credits a pair of clutch three-pointers down the stretch from newcomer Alex McIntyre and the hard work of Grade 12 Hans Stander. Graham Miller was named tournament MVP while Zach Allan was named to the allstar team. Charles Best opened the tournament with a n 8 3 - 4 6 w i n ove r t h e E d wa r d M i l n e Wolverines from Sooke before knocking off Surrey’s Johnston Heights Eagles 96-59. The Centennial Centaurs were unable to hold onto the lead in a 59-55 loss to the New Westminster Hyacks. Grade 11 Alex Vranjes netted 16 points to pace the Centaurs who led by seven with five minutes remaining. “ We w i l l l e a r n from this loss,” said Centennial coach Alan Kaselj. “We’ve got to learn that we have to put teams away when we have that opportunity late in the game.” The Riverside Rapids opened their senior AAA girls season with a 71-43 win over Gleneagle. Dani Angignani led the Rapids with 22 points wh i l e Va n e s s a G e e chipped in 14. Riverside welcomes s o m e o f t h e p rov ince’s top girls teams this week for the 10th a n n u a l To u r n a m e n t for Emily. Riverside joins Terry Fox and Archbishop Carney in hosting the tournament that runs Dec. 19-21. The tournament — named after Emily Inglis, a Port Coquitlam girl who died of cancer in 2002 at the age of 12 — has raised more than $56,000 for Children’s Hospital since its inception in 2004. sports@tricitynews.com

Tri-City products form core of Team BC squad By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News

The Tri-Cities will have a prominent role on the U18 Team BC that will take on some of the top high school football players at the FBU International Showcase. Terry Fox Ravens coach Tom Kudaba will lead the B.C. team that

includes six Ravens and one Centennial Centaur at the showcase that runs as part of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Week in San Antonio, Tex. Dec. 30 to Jan. 4. “The U.S. team has now divided itself into two Texas teams [East and West] and we all know the reputation

of Texas football,” said Kudaba, who is in his fourth year on the sidelines with Team BC. Centennial running back J.P. Kalambay will join Terry Fox defensive backs Kyle Miller and Jason Shamatutu, defensive linemen Kyle Sagmoen and Mike West, offensive lineman Michael Beck and re-

ceiver Adrial Sellers. “The six local players from Terry Fox will all play important roles on this year’s team and I hope they can build on the success that the team had during the regular season,” said Kudaba. “The experience and exposure these kids get from events like this is im-

measurable and will help their personal development as well as raise the lustre of our provincial football program.” Sagm o en , S el le rs and Beck, along with Ballenas Whalers offensive lineman Brock Mould are returning veterans from last year’s Team BC that finished

as the top team in the FBU International Showcase. “Experience always counts and we will have some players who we will rely on to duplicate last year’s performances,” said Kudaba, who’s hoping for major contributions from new players like Handsworth Royals quarterback

Mike LeMoine and Tweedsmuir Panthers running back Jamel Lyles. Team BC will open their schedule Jan. 1 against Texas East at Heroes Stadium. Their second and final game goes Jan. 4 against Team Europe in the Alamodome. sports@tricitynews.com

George named top junior on track

A Coquitlam sprinter has chased down the award for the province’s top junior on the track. Nathan George w a s named the 2013 junior m a l e t r a c k and field GeorGe athlete of the year at the B.C. Athletics awards banquet Dec. 7 at the Hilton Va n c o u v e r A i r p o r t Hotel in Richmond. George, who competes with the Coquitlam Cheetahs and Trinity Western Spartans, helped Canada to a bronze medal in the 4x400metre relay at the 2013 Pan American junior championships. He also finished seventh in the 400-m. George was a double-gold winner — outpacing the field in the 200-m and 400-m — at the 2013 B.C. Track and Field Championships in Kamloops. He claimed silver in the 400-m at the Canadian junior championships. Po r t C o q u i t l a m ’ s Brittni Wolczyk was also nominated as the top youth female performer. Wolczyk won gold at the Legion Nationals in the U18 women’s javelin with a throw of 48.71 metres.

Would like to Thank The Home Depot Canada Foundation and the local Home Depot stores in Langley, Surrey, Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam for selecting Tri-City Transitions as the recipient of proceeds raised by their store associates during the 2013 Buy a Hammer, Build Our Community campaign. The proceeds from every $2 ‘paper hammer’ sold at the Coquitlam, Surrey, Langley, White Rock and Port Coquitlam Home Depot stores will support Tri-City Transitions Society’s Transition House program, providing safe shelter to women and children fleeing abuse. Together, we’re building strong communities across Canada.

Minnie McIlvaney (born Wilhelmina Antonia Schollen) September 15, 1916 in Drumheller, Alberta - December 03, 2013 in Coquitlam, BC

Minnie was a person of great strength and always had a smile on her face. Her family was a unique source of pride and joy. She was a wonderful mom and grandma (The best according to Adrienne). This beautiful girl fell in love with Bennie McIlvaney, a handsome young man coming back from the war and she married him in 1946. The couple moved to the West Coast to raise their family of five children which grew to nine grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Peter (Anne), Bernie (Judith), Jim (Cécile), Chris (Lee), Mary (Norman) (Lorne); Grandchildren: Eric, April, Sara, Jenifer, Adrienne, Jessica, Renee, Étienne, Monique; Great grandchildren: Logan, Rebecca, Francesca, Macey. There is nothing Minnie enjoyed more than having people around, listening, chatting, laughing, having a glass of wine and cooking a big batch of spaghetti for everybody. Over the years, she welcomed many people in her life and was an attentive friend. A lady of great generosity, she never hesitated to help people who she knew were struggling. Minnie loved music and had a wonderful voice. She was the soul of the party. She also enjoyed dancing in her younger years. A good knitter, she did what grandma’s are expected to do and knit many blankie and sweaters for her grandkids. Well read, she kept an eye on the news and knew where the world was at. She had an opinion on many topics and liked good conversation.. About ten years ago, she lost her sight but kept reading with audio books. After the death of her beloved Bennie in 2009, her health declined. She spent the last years of her life in Lakeshore Care Home. On December 3, she decided that it was time for her to go…and she went without any fuss. She will be missed a lot.
