Coquitlam’s Widgeon Marsh Regional Park Reserve, which is now larger than Stanley Park, is home to a variety of rare and endangered species.

Metro buys Widgeon wilderness for $2.2M ‘Magnificent addition’ to parks By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Cause of blaze that destroyed house may be suspicious By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A fire that burned down a half-built home on Glenbrook Street in northeast Coquitlam Friday night is being treated as suspicious. Fire Chief Wade Pierlot said there are un-

confirmed reports from residents in the area that several people were seen running from the structure shortly after the blaze broke out. “We can only draw conclusions at this point,” he said. “It is suspicious and that is about all we can say. But there is

nothing that confirms it.” The home was under construction and Pierlot confirmed that there was no electrical service going to the building. Fire investigators have not been able to determine conclusively what caused the fire but the chief noted that there

was no evidence accelerants were used. Without any drywall to slow the flames, it did not take long for the building to be fully engulfed and firefighters could only work to contain the blaze. It took two engines, a ladder truck and a

rescue truck to fight the fire, which singed a neighbouring building that was also under construction. “It was a quick knockdown,” Assistant Chief Scott Mackenzie said. “It was pretty spectacular but that’s about it.” gmckenna@tricitynews.com

A hidden gem of marshland and forest on the Pitt River waterfront in Coquitlam has been purchased for $2.2 million and could one day be opened up to picnickers and hikers. Before Christmas, Metro Vancouver Parks announced the acquisition of eight hectares to extend the Widgeon Marsh Regional Park Reserve, which is now larger than Stanley Park and home to a variety of rare and endan-

gered species. “It’s a beautiful area up there, it’s going to be a magnificent addition to the Metro Vancouver parks system,” said Elaine Golds, a director of the Burke Mountain Naturalists, which puts up nest boxes for birds in areas south of the reserve. The valuable property is located in the Widgeon Valley in an area north of Minnekhada Regional Park. Among the species that make their home there are the green heron, western screech and short-eared owls, red-legged frog and the painted turtle. see NEW WIDGEON, page 6

Xmas tree options: chipping, chopping or charity Charities will benefit from fundraising chipping Chip it or chop it. Those are the two m a i n o p t i o n s Po r t Coquitlam residents have when disposing of their Christmas trees this year. Between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Jan. 4 and 5, residents can bring their

tree to PoCo Fire Hall #1 (1725 Broadway St.) to be chipped. The minimum donation is $5 and all proceeds go to the BC Professional Fire Fighters Burn Fund. As well, old Christmas lights can be brought to the event for recycling by donation. Art Knapp Plantland and Florist (1300 Dominion Ave. in Port Coquiitlam) will be chip-

ping trees between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. daily between Jan. 3 and 24. A minimum donation of $5 is also being requested, with all proceeds going to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund. The chipped trees will then be used as gardening and landscaping mulch. Residents with city green waste collection can also put their trees in the green cart after chopping it into pieces

no more than three inches in diameter and 40 inches long. For more information, watch a YouTube instructional video on the city’s website at www.portcoquitlam.ca/green. (Residents of Coquitlam and Port Moody should check their cities’ websites for details on discarding Christmas trees.) Port Moody firefighters will also be chipping

trees at No. 1 fire hall (200 Ioco Rd.) on Jan. 4 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Hot chocolate, coffee and vehicle vacuuming will be available and every 30 minutes firefighters will demonstrate how quickly a Christmas tree can go up in flames. There is a minimum $5 donation and all proceeds will go to the burn fund. Several other by-donation Christmas tree chip-

ping events will be held in the Tri-Cities, including: • Kinsmen Club and 1st Kinsmen Scout Group, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Jan. 4 and 5 at Centennial secondary school (570 Poirier St., Coquitlam); • Friends of Mundy Park Heritage Society, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Jan. 4 and 5 at the Mundy Park gravel lot (off HIllcrest Avenue); • Cedar Drive ele-

Market operator welcomes wine sales By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News

Organic carrots. Potatoes. Pickles. Kettle corn. As early as the spring, you might be able to add a bottle of B.C.-made merlot to your grocery list when visiting a farmers’ market. And that’s welcome news for Tabitha McLoughlin, executive director of the Coquitlam Farmers Market, which runs a weekly market in spring, summer and early fall in Coquitlam and the biweekly Port Moody Farmers in late fall and winter. “I think it’s great,” said McLoughlin.“It’s another avenue that we can get B.C. product available to consumers in a place where they already are shopping, and it fits so well with B.C. fruits and produce that people are buying.” She hasn’t yet been approached by any possible vendors since Premier Christy Clark made the announcement and expects it will be some time before new rules are in place. But she is hopeful that B.C. wine, craft beer and spirits will be sold during the 2014 market season. “The success is always in the details, so we will have to wait and see what the implementation of this new market segment will look like,” she said. “Overall, I think it will give shoppers another reason to shop at farmers markets, it will add to the vibrancy of the markets and it will increase the economic impact of markets in cities across the province.” Typically small farm-

They offer a direct relationship with the consumer and the ability for a business owner to react to customer feedback almost instantly,” McLoughlin said. Wine and beer vendors interested in bringing their products and tastings to markets in Port Moody and Coquitlam will have to pass the same test as any other vendor that sells locally. “It has to be made, baked or grown here, it’s got to be B.C. beer wine or spirits,”she explained. The opportunity is just one more avenue of growth for farmers’ markets, which have seen rising consumer demand over the years, although studies have shown only about 1% of Tri-City consumers get some of their

The new community garden at Port Moody Po l i c e D e p a r t m e n t headquarters has generated a lot of interest, McLoughlin said, especially from people who live in townhouses and condos.

Port Moody is among the cities whose recycling will change. will likely occur in July at the same time the new automated garbage system is rolled out, with BFI Canada Inc. handling trash and organic waste collection. For Moore, who initially had reservations about the MMBC program, the switch to an industry stewardship group

taking over responsibility for consumer packaging is welcome news. “We want to see them succeed,” said Moore, who said the program is a model for others across the country. But he admits the “incentive” MMBC pays his city doesn’t cover the costs, and he hopes the group

will only charge fines as a last resort after spotchecks and audits over a six-month process. “They are not there to penalize,” said Moore. “They are there to get the best quality commodity product that they can.” dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

A stolen doggy buggy has been returned to its owner, thanks to the keen eye of RCMP Const. John Graham. While patrolling the area of Davies Avenue and Westwood Street, he spotted two suspicious individuals pushing their bikes, one of which had a yellow doggy buggy attached. One of the men took off on his bike but the wheel came off and he had to abandon it along with the buggy, which had been spray painted yellow. The interior was the same as one that had been stolen from an underground parked five days earlier. It has since been returned to its owner.

NOTICE OF INTENTION

www.coquitlam.ca

Port Moody and Port Coquitlam have signed a deal with MMBC that takes effect in May and will see the cities collect recyclables using their own trucks and staff while MMBC pays them an “incentive” fee to cover some of the costs. In Coquitlam, MMBC will hire its own contractor to do the job and will pay the contractor directly, at no cost to taxpayers. The impact of these changes means householders will pay less for recyclables —  in Coquitlam, they won’t pay anything for recycling — with MMBC picking up the tab. The change is welcomed by Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore, who thinks it’s about time industry takes responsibility for its packaging. “They have a legal responsibility to pick up and deliver this material and we want to work with them,”Moore said. Here’s how it works: • In Port Moody, MMBC will pay the city $191,000 in 2014 (a partial year) and $330,000 in 2015 to collect recyclables on its behalf. This will mean lower annual recycling fees for residents — about $14 less for single-family homes and $30 less for multifamily homes in 2014, with greater reductions in 2015. • In PoCo, MMBC will pay $550,000 in 2014 and $600,000 in 2015, and residents won’t see any hike to their waste collection fees as revenue from MMBC helps to offset costs. • In Coquitlam, the city estimates waste collection costs will drop from about $6 million to $3.7 million, with MMBC taking over responsibility for recyclables, but the city will still pay about $5 million for carts for its new automated system, which will be amortized over several years and paid for through utility fees, and thus likely offset some of the savings in recycling costs. As for glass, MMBC will be responsible for glass that can’t be returned for a deposit — as it is for all the other packaging — but wants glass separated out from the paper, plastic and can recyclables. In PoMo, where homeowners are used to putting glass in their recycling carts, this will be a change and they will have to take glass to a depot, where it will be handled by the contractor chosen by MMBC. In Port Coquitlam, residents already separate their glass and take it to a recycling depot. In Coquitlam, meanwhile, it’s not yet known how MMBC plans to handle glass but changes

will up its game in future years. “As they become more experts, they’ll look to make sure we’re whole,” he predicted. In Port Moody, MMBC incentives also don’t cover all the costs because of the cost of maintenance and fuel for city trucks. As well, fines for contamination rates above 3% are also a concern and both cities have set aside some of the revenue from the MMBC “incentives” to cover emergencies. Coquitlam will likely have to do the same. Moore acknowledged that MMBC is willing to work with the cities and

The intent of the Bylaw is to close and remove the dedication of 101.8m² of undeveloped lane adjacent to 514, 516 Foster Avenue and 515 Ebert Avenue and the 387.1m² portion of lane adjacent to 554 Foster Avenue, 636, 638, and 640 Aspen Street as shown in bold outline on the map below. The applicant is requesting these lane cancelations in order to facilitate their mediumdensity development proposal and expand the City’s Burquitlam Community Garden.

New Widgeon plan will take years to complete continued from front page

She said it’s important to protect these areas given pressures on waterfront property throughout the region. “It’s a legacy for the future and one that future generations will appreciate for years to come,”said Golds, also The Tri-City News’ Green Scene columnist. But it could be some time before the public can get inside the reserve. A comprehensive management plan will have to be developed first and it will be five years before one will likely be started, said Ron Wood, Metro Vancouver Parks’ opera-

tions manager. “Right now, there are no amenities for the public,” Wood said, noting a gravel road into the area would need to be improved and maintained, requiring discussions with the city of Coquitlam. Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore, who was recently re-elected Metro Vancouver board chair, welcomed the land acquisition as an opportunity to provide further recreational opportunities “where we can experience and learn from nature.” This is the second addition to the Widgeon Marsh Regional Park Reserve. Last December, Metro Vancouver an-

nounced the purchase of 9.6 hectares for the reserve in partnership with Ducks Unlimited Canada. At the time, it was pointed out that the wetlands are extensively used by waterfowl, with bird counts as high as 1,000 to 2,000 a day. Eventually, it is hoped the area could be used as a staging area for hiking, biking, picnicking and birdwatching, as well as for water access to scenic areas of Widgeon Slough and marsh. According to Metro Vancouver, the $2,525,000 purchase price was based on an independent appraisal. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

1-hour oil spill response urged for Burrard Inlet Drew says KM’s improved plan still falls short

so it can press for improvements in the plan at National Energy Board hearings expected next year. Kinder Morgan’s proposal calls for WCMRC to have equipment on hand that can clean up what it calls a credible worst-case loss to sea of 20,000 tonnes of oil —

By Jeff Nagel BlacK Press

Kinder Morgan’s proposal to speed up oil spill response times is still inadequate to protect the sensitive environment in Burrard Inlet, says Belcarra’s mayor. Ralph Drew was responding to the pipeline firm’s pledge to dramatically improve the emergency response as part of its application to twin the Trans Mountain pipeline. “What they proposed is a big picture generic plan, which is a big improvement over the previous one,” Drew said. “But what I’m looking for are specific plans tailored for specific locales.” Kinder Morgan’s Dec. 16 application to the National Energy Board calls for five new spill response bases to be established around southern Vancouver Island and at Roberts Bank. Two or three of them would be staffed around the clock. It also calls for several additional response vessels and an increase in the number of staff from 30 to more than 90 at the Western Canada Marine Response Corp. (WCMRC), an industryfunded spill response cooperative. Kinder Morgan says the improvements together would cut spill response times from six hours to two around Port Metro Vancouver and from 18 hours to six hours beyond the port through the southern Gulf Islands and up the west side ofVancouver Island. Drew said he thinks the maximum response time should be one hour in Burrard Inlet, not two, since WCMRC is based right there and the inlet has a unique combination of sensitive habitats, recreational and tourism values, as well as important fisheries. He said a one-hour response guarantee could be achieved by pre-staging containment booms and other spill response gear at key points around the inlet. “Those basically let you rapidly draw the curtain to protect specific areas while you proceed to skim and do the mop up,” Drew said. “Otherwise the tide’s going to deposit that oil all over the sensitive intertidal zone within hours.” Drew said he believes WCMRC is reluctant to commit to tailored strategies because that would make it harder to meet targets in those areas on a 24/7 basis. He noted a federal report released two weeks

A tanker plies the water of Burrard Inlet. ago that was critical of the current spill response capability indicated there was a need to examine specific sites with a view to developing specific strategies. WCMRC claims it was on scene in one hour in 2007 when a backhoe hit the Kinder Morgan pipeline in Burnaby and caused a spill of oil that partly reached the inlet. Drew said that response time has been disputed, but added it was in the middle of the day in summer in ideal conditions. He said responders must assume the next accident — whatever it is — will come at the most difficult possible time. “It could happen in dark and stormy weather on a winter weekend, maybe Christmas Eve, with everyone on vacation and nobody responding to the callout.” Kinder Morgan’s pipeline project would mean

a seven-fold increase in shipments through the inlet, to about 400 oil

tankers a year. Belcarra will likely seek intervenor status

the contents of two of a tanker’s loaded tanks, or about a quarter of its capacity. Kinder Morgan’s application calls for escort tugs to accompany tankers all the way from the Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby to open ocean at the entrance to Juan de Fuca

Strait, instead of on just portions of the shipping route. The pipeline firm has also proposed a moving bubble zone around tankers that other vessels couldn’t enter as an additional safety measure to prevent collisions. jnagel@blackpress.ca

same time as the BC Assessment Authority releases its annual property assessments. “With all the growth throughout the Tri-Cities, there have been some changes in the assessments in the past that have concerned business owners. This seminar is a chance to educate them on the process and their options,”Hind said. All businesses are welcome to attend. To ensure your seat is reserved, pre-register with the chamber at www.tricitieschamber.com or by calling 604-464-2716.

Jan. meeting on Chinese reparations There will be a local forum in January as part of a provincial Chinese reparations program. The dates and locations of community forums to discuss the wording, delivery and legacy efforts for a formal apology to B.C.’s Chinese community for historical wrongs have been confirmed. Community forums will be held in December and January in Kamloops, Vancouver,

Kelowna, Richmond and Prince George. The local date — so far only identified as Burnaby/Coquitlam — is Tuesday, Jan. 28. Over the coming weeks, the exact time and venue of each forum will be posted at www.embracebc.ca. The input received at the community forums and online submissions, will guide the wording, delivery and legacy ef-

forts of a formal apology. In the next sitting of the legislature, the government plans to introduce a motion regarding a formal apology to British Columbia’s Chinese community for historical wrongs. If you are interested in providing feedback, but are not able to attend any consultation events, feedback can be sent directly to: apology.consultation@ gov.bc.ca.

Two environmental groups that dropped wooden drift cards to model the flow of oil from a spill in Vancouver Harbour say the initial results demonstrate how quickly local beaches could be fouled. Raincoast Conservation and the Georgia Strait Alliance dropped 1,644 cards seven weeks ago at nine locations and asked people who found them to report the locations and times. Cards dropped off at Point Grey and at the Second Narrows washed ashore very quickly, the groups say, suggesting oil spilled in the harbour could reach Vancouver and West Vancouver beaches within 24 to 48 hours and continue to wash up there for weeks. Those cards eventually circulated to the San Juan Islands, the Sunshine Coast and other locations, sometimes travelling 200 to 300 km. The preliminary report of the Salish Sea Drift Card Study says it’s likely oil spilled at any of the test sites would reach much of the south coast of Vancouver Island from Sidney to Tofino, the San Juans, the southern Gulf Islands and the north coast of Washington’s Olympic Peninsula. Project co-ordinator Andy Rosenberger said

that’s a broader spread than Kinder Morgan estimates as a result of a spill of an oil tanker in the area filed in its application to twin its Trans Mountain pipeline. About 28% of the dropped cards have been recovered so far. The map is updated as more are found and can be viewed at salishseaspillmap.org. Other news:

AirCare fees will go down over next year Motorists whose vehicles need AirCare testing next year will get a break on fees in the final year of the program. The fee for 1992 and newer vehicles drops from $45 to $36 in January and then is reduced $2 each month after that. The fee for 1991 and older vehicles, now at $23, will be reduced by $1 each month. The vehicle emissions testing program is to be scrapped at the end of 2014. The provincial government says air quality benefits from the program have diminished as vehicle pollution controls improved.

y now, B.C. shoppers will have been deluged with thousands of commercial messages on television, videos, smart phones, newspapers and emails. There are few places to escape this message to buy, buy, buy during the pre- and post-Christmas shopping season. Only the rarest among us will have avoided the temptation to overspend. The bad news comes about the middle of January when the bills start pouring in, at about the same time we pay more for MSP, Hydro and other costs. Still, forecasters are suggesting that Canadians will not be reining in the spending and, in fact, will be growing their consumer debt at about a 4% rate, 3% more than last year, with most of it accumulated from car loans or instalment payments on large appliances. This may not be a worry as long as interest rates don’t rise, the economy grows and Canadians can handle their debt. But the increasing vulnerability of many households is still a worry.

The changing face of philanthropy in Canada AS I SEE IT Kevin McCort

I

n the aftermath of the devastating Philippines typhoon, many Canadians may question whether they can really make a difference in the world by supporting a charity. Paradoxically, we are at the traditional time of year when people focus on charitable giving, a time when charities across the country try to attract donors to support their cause. This is a good time to reflect, to consider why philanthropy matters in today’s society. We know that people feel good when they help other people. It doesn’t matter whether they give money, time or advice — it’s the giving that counts. Brain scans using MRI show the act of giving releases dopamine — a powerful neurotransmitter — into the body of the donor. Dopamine controls the brain’s pleasure and reward centres.Thus, giving literally makes you feel good. A lot of people may be feeling good these days. Canadians give $10 billion to charities every year.

This amount is growing, albeit slowly, at about 1% annually. What is growing is the number of charities. It’s estimated there are 86,500 charities across Canada and 3,500 new ones are created every year. This increase is a clear indication of need in the community. For example, food bank usage is at near record levels. More than 833,000 people used a food bank in Canada last March. Even more disturbing is that one in eight of those food bank clients was employed at the time. The ranks of the working poor — those who have a hard time making ends meet despite having a job — are swelling.This puts increasing strain on the resources of charities to meet the growing need. At the same time, more charities are going after a pool of donations that is not growing as fast as demand, nor is it outpacing growth in expenses. There is considerable debate as to the cause but the result is clear: It is costing Canadian charities more than ever to raise money.Twenty years ago, it cost 18 cents to raise $1; now, it costs Canadian charities 35 cents or more to raise that same dollar. Competing for program money is one of the greatest challenges facing the non-profit sector. This competitive environment has prompted organizations to pursue riskier fundraising strategies,

TRI-CITY NEWS 1405 Broadway St., Port Coquitlam, B.C. V3C 6L6 telephone: 604-525-6397 • fax: 604-944-0703 audited circulation: 52,692

Local foundations: page 16 like using celebrity spokespeople, or retaining expensive fundraising consultants. If these fail to produce cost-effective results, the charity risks alienating long-term donors and eroding its most valuable asset: public trust. Charities also face pressure from another quarter: their donors. Much of modern philanthropy today is very public. Donors want to give for good reasons but also want public recognition of their giving. Modern donors often want to play a meaningful role in the distribution of their gifts. No longer content to wait for the benefits to appear, they want to see the results of their generosity — they want metrics and they want them now. Dedicating hospital wings, theatres, study halls or stadiums is part of this trend, and another way for charities to acknowledge high-profile giving. It’s a reality that will continue, though it’s a doubleedged sword. Increasing publicity around large donations can alienate smaller donors and dilute the pride they feel.Their reaction is “I can’t possibly match that”

or “What do they need my money for?” The explosive growth of social media also appears to be affecting donations. A recent study on “slacktivism”from the University of BC shows that when people declare support for a charity publicly through social media, it can actually make them less likely to donate to the cause. But it’s not all doom and gloom.There are many things to look forward to and to celebrate.The new generation of young donors is far more optimistic about the future than their Baby Boom counterparts.They are also more generous with their time and money, and more likely to sit on boards and committees than previous generations.They trust charities more than anyone, with 83% of those under 25 expressing “a lot, or some”trust, compared to 76% of those over 65. It’s unfortunate that it takes a natural disaster for people to contemplate the need for charitable giving. Whether the need is in your community or halfway around the world, even a small gift can have a big impact.The act of giving can be its own reward. Giving may feel good, but giving back — and touching the lives of others — feels even better. Kevin McCort is president and CEO of Vancouver Foundation (www.vancouverfoundation.ca).

his year is on life support and 2014 is about to be born. But before we embrace and swaddle the infant year, what can we expect from it? Here’s my less-than-comprehensive wish list for 2014, along with some predictions. I’m feeling emboldened, having last year correctly predicted that marriage equality would be constitutionally accepted in the U.S. in 2013. Locally, I hope 2014 brings relief from Lougheed Highway gridlock from Oxford in Port Coquitlam to west of Coquitlam Centre. I’m not confident, so perhaps our councils might instead consider a bylaw to allow texting for drivers who daily disappear and sit in this Lougheed triangle. I hope in 2014 that the fight is won for a SkyTrain station near the old Andrés Wine property in west Port Moody. I also hope Port Moody council will work 29% harder to resurrect the overdue Murray-Clarke connector project. Knowing the dedicated and politically astute people involved, an easy prediction is that 2014 will see the Mossom Creek Hatchery rise from its ashes bigger and better than before — probably before the salmon run next fall. I hope 2014 is the year Tri-City

councils empathize with the homeless as much as they turn cartwheels to placate NIMBY concerns. Provincially, I hope 2014 will see a real investigative reporter pierce the cover-up and expose the sale of BC Rail as the biggest, smelliest scandal in B.C. history. I believe 2014 will be the year the Enbridge, Kinder Morgan and Gateway pipelines are schmoozed through, with Premier Christy Clark getting credit for saving B.C. after her five Enbridge conditions are nominally met. The Vancouver Canucks will lose in the second round of the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs, having been out-hit and unable to stop shots from the slot — no riot, though. Nationally, the Senate scandal will die as we realize that effective Senate reform could constipate decision-making and that abolition is far too difficult. It will be no business as usual in the Senate by early 2014. Internationally, 2014 will see the U.S. and Iran reach an historic agreement on nuclear non-proliferation and President Barack Obama will still be accused of weakness by American hawks. But glib predictions aside, more than anything, I hope that 2014 brings improvement to the lot of the downtrodden and needy among us.

TRI-CITY LETTERS

Big PoMo council pay raises prompt amalgamation talk The Editor, Re. “Cash for hatchery (and PM council),” (The Tri-City News, Dec. 20). According to statistics on the city of Port Moody’s website, the average married couple and lone-parent family incomes (2005) were about $88,000 and $48,000, respectively. If a typical councillor devotes 20 hours a week to civic tasks, as Coun. Diana Dilworth stated, then the old salary level of $25,520 would seem appropriate. This self-serving largesse illustrates why the Tri-Cities should be amalgamated to eliminate a pair of city councils. D.B. Wilson, Port Moody

next time we vote in the next general election (in November 2014), council should let the voters vote on this. Or perhaps we should amalgamate Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port

Moody, and trim the fat of all those councils into one — then we can see if the councillors get reelected because of their expertise with a larger population base. R. Johnson, Port Moody

Pickell on track for a breakout season By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News

After two years competing on the cycling circuit Jackson Pickell’s skills are reaching high gear. The 17-year-old Port Coquitlam rider turned in a top-20 performance earlier this year at the national championships in Lac-Megantic, Que. Pickell finished the road race segment in two hours, 54 minutes and 16 seconds to take 19th spot in the junior category while his time of 44:23 in the time trials was good enough for 29th spot. “The guy’s a great bike racer. He has an eye for being able to pick out winning moves in races,” said Richard Wooles, Pickell’s coach and the executive director with Cycling British Columbia. “Jackson’s got a good engine but he’s also got a keen eye for being able to understand the bike race and the tactics that go along with the race.” Pickell followed that up with a top-10 showing in category 3 at the N o r t h we s t Ju n i o r s Classic Stage Race in Washington state.

IN QUOTES

“Jackson’s got a good engine but he’s also got a keen eye for being able to understand the bike race and the tactics that go along with the race.” Richard Wooles, Cycling BC executive director Pickell’s time of 2:07:38 was good enough for fourth in the road race while he finished 12th in the time trial in a time of 30:15 and was 17th in the criterium in 50:49. His combined time for the three events gave him a ninth place finish. “It was a tough time trial but I liked the road race course. It was pretty hilly so that suited me because I’m a bit of a climber,” said Pickell, adding the road race is his favourite of the events. “Over the races I’ve developed as a climber.” Time trials see riders race by themselves in an attempt to record the best time over a course of about 12 kilometres. A road race will range from two to four hours where riders tackle a longer course of up to 80 or 90 kilometers. A criterium is similar to a road race,

with riders going over a shorter circuit, usually about a kilometre, for 30 minutes to an hour. But with the onset of colder weather, Pickell and many of the other riders turn their focus indoors. His next race will be the Burnaby Four-Day at the Burnaby Velodrome Dec. 27-30. “I got into road riding from track. Track is where I started. I really like to do both of them right now,” said Pickell, who enjoys the strategy of track racing. “There’s a lot of strategy in when to attack. If everyone has just sprinted, you can decide to attack right after that and some of the guys might be a bit tired.” Competing on both the track and road circuit requires two different types of bikes and even different training routines.

“It’s hard because when you want to train specifically for track you’re working on the shorter distances so sometimes it kind of conflicts,” said Pickell. Finding the time for training can also sometimes be a challenge. “It’s kind of hard with school to go out for very long on the roads because it gets dark around 4,” said Pickell, who goes to the track once a week and also has a traini n g b i ke s e t u p at home. “The weekends are usually when I get my road riding in on my winter bike, we do group rides in the Fraser Valley.” Pickell is aiming for a strong showing at next year’s national championships as well as the races in Washington state. “Next year is a big step up for him. If he does well he should go on to represent Canada at the world championships in Spain,” said Wooles, who coached the Canadian team for the last two Olympics as well as Great Britain for the two before that. sports@tricitynews.com

Express can’t recover from slow start against Kings By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News

Sometimes the breaks just don’t go your way. And the Coquitlam Express knew early that last Friday was going to be one of those nights. The Express fell behind early with Powell River scoring three times in the first 7:39 on their

way to an 8-3 win. “They got up early on us and then after that we battled back but they just got some lucky bounces,” said Express head coach Barry Wolff. “They threw some pucks at the net and a couple went off ice and a couple went off them. We just had no luck.” Bo Pieper finally got

Coquitlam on the scoreboard when he potted a shorthanded marker from Ryan Rosenthall with just over two minutes left in the opening period. Canon Pieper’s power play marker two minutes into the second frame brought the Express within one. But less than a minute later Brian

Rideout restored Powell River’s two-goal lead. Kurt Keats added to the lead later in the period before Canon and Bo Pieper again combined to bring the Express within two. But the third period was all Kings, who outshot the Express 12-4 in the period and found the back of the net three

times, twice on the power play. Gordie Defiel made 28 saves in net for the Express, who were outshot 36-22. The Express enjoyed a week-long Christmas break before getting back on the ice this weekend for a homeand-home series with the Langley Rivermen.

“It’s been a tough year so far, more so emotionally. It’s just been up and down, like a roller coaster ride,” said Wolff. “I think it will be great for us to get away for five or six days and just hang out, have some fun and come back refocused.” Coquitlam headed into the break 11 points back of the Prince George

Spruce Kings for second place in the BCHL’s Mainland Division and two points up on the Surrey Eagles. The Express will be in the Langley Events Centre Saturday night before playing host to the Rivermen for a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Centre.

knocked off the Centennial Centaurs 71-39 and crushed Byrne Creek 107-42 to claim fourth spot. Pinetree lost their opener to Charles Tupper 57-47. The Timberwolves then fell 71-65 to Byrne Creek before holding off Centennial 64-47 to snare seventh place. Centennial lost to Handsworth 62-57 in their other match. Holy Cross won the final with a 71-58 victory over Pitt Meadows The Talons Cordell Parker was named a tournament all-star.

The Charles Best Blue Devils continued their hot streak last week, capturing the McDonald’s VPD Winter Invitational. Th e B l u e D ev i l s scorched the John Oliver Jokers 96-69 to open the tournament before knocking off the Eric Hamber Griffins 87-47. The Devils punched their ticket to the finals with a 95-72 win over the Windermere Warriors. Charles Best’s Grade 11 standout Graham Miller scored 13 points in the third quarter to help overcome a 55-50 deficit and pace the Devils to a 79-76 win over David Thompson in the final. The Blue Devils Hans Stander was able to win the rebounding battle against his taller opponent, earning a selection as a first-team allstar. Miller was named tournament MVP. “A s a f i r s t ye a r coach with these guys I couldn’t be happier how quickly they picked up my offense,” said Blue Devils coach Sam Yu, who is happy with the 80 points a game his team is scoring. “Defensively we are giving up an average of 69 a game which needs to be lowered to around the 60-65 range but overall it’s been a great start for the Blue Devils.”
