Person of interest in hit-and-run questioned by police By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

DIANE STRANDBERG/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Orthopedic surgeons Dr. Bob McCormack, left, and Dr. Dory Boyer of Port Moody’s Eagle Ridge Hospital will be heading to Sochi Jan. 29 where they will look after the health needs of Canadian athletes at the Olympic Winter Games. Both are experienced sports physicians working in multi-sport games: Dr. Boyer has worked at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics and the World University Games this past summer in Russia, and Dr. McCormack has worked at several Olympic Games and will be the chief medical health officer at these Games. For details, SEE PAGE 9.

No arrests have been made but police have impounded a vehicle and spoken with a person of interest in last week’s deadly hit-and-run collision in Coquitlam. The incident, which occurred along Austin Avenue between Schoolhouse and Decaire Street shortly before 2 p.m. on Thursday, left an 88-yearold woman dead. Initially, the victim was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital in critical condition, however within an hour police announced that she had succumbed to her injuries. A neighbour told CTV News he tried to administer CPR to the woman before emergency crews arrived. Trevor Stewart said he heard a scream and looked over to see a car backing up in the home’s driveway before hearing another scream. see COQUITLAM, page 6

Belkorp wants garbage-sorting plant in Coq. Firm says technology would undercut incineration By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

The firm that runs the Cache Creek landfill wants to build a $30-million highly mechanized plant in Coquitlam to pull recyclables from garbage before it’s dumped or incinerated. And on Monday night,

Coquitlam city council said it would back its proposal, voting to send a letter to Metro Vancouver to call for action. Coquitlam city manager Peter Steblin said the new plant would maximize recycling and reuse of material and help meet Metro’s waste diversion targets at no extra cost to residents. The plant would be built on 16 acres of industrial land Belkorp owns on United

Boulevard. It would create 80 new green jobs and use technology increasingly in use in California. But Belkorp Environmental Services is squaring off against Metro, saying it will only build the plant if the regional district backs down on imposing restrictions on how material recovery facilities operate. Its announcement is the latest shot by private industry across the bow of Metro’s strategy

to burn more garbage in waste-to-energy plants instead of dumping it in landfills. Belkorp vice-president Russ Black said the proposed plant could process 260,000 tonnes of garbage per year — more than a quarter of Metro’s waste stream. He estimates residual garbage in the region — even after intensive efforts to recycle — still consists of 36% recyclable material, much of it paper and plastics. Belkorp and other pro-

ponents of material recovery facilities (MRFs) say advancing technology to sort garbage holds much promise to pull out more usable material. Black said Metro’s bylaw 280, passed in October but is still awaiting provincial government approval, restricts MRFs too tightly and must be rejected by the province or revised by the regional board for Belkorp’s plant to go ahead. see COMPANY, page 7

Few changes to councillor disclosure statements By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News

Public papers revealing what Tri-City politicians own and owe were released by the three municipalities last week. And two new names were added to financial disclosure documents, resulting from last fall’s byelection in Coquitlam. Under the Financial Disclosure Act, elected city officials’ assets, liabilities and sources of income must be released on Jan. 15. Still, they don’t offer a whole lot of insight into their personal dealings: Mortgages or money borrowed for household and living expenses need not be listed on the provincial forms, for example. And they aren’t required to disclose what land they own outside of the community unless they’re seeking provincial office. Like last year, the 2014 forms indicate the three Tri-Cities’ mayors have external jobs besides their city, Metro Vancouver and TransLink gigs: Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart is the proprietor of Stewart Communications; Port Coquitlam Mayor Greg Moore, who also chairs the Metro board, is the owner of Livable Region Consulting Inc.; and Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay works for Tero Consulting and owns TTS Automation Inc., a computer consulting business. As for the two new Coquitlam city councillors, Chris Wilson pulls a salary from Chris Wilson Enterprises, of which he’s the owner and sole proprietor, and as executive

director of KidSport. The former Olympian also owns the property beside his residence (he built both homes) and lists 47 companies — mostly in mining and energy — in which he’s a shareholder. And newly elected Coun. Bonita Zarrillo has assets in six companies and draws an income from BZ3 Flexible Assets, a job placement firm she owns. Other items of note: • Coquitlam Coun. Lou Sekora is the president of a shell company that has no land or creditors; he also has assets in the Westside Preparatory Society, Jade Mine (Dease Lake) and KCM Energy Inc.; • Coquitlam Coun. Terry O’Neill is the writer, editor and corporate secretary of Eureka Resources Inc., of which he’s a shareholder; and is a writer and editor with O’Neill Hotel and Resorts; • Coquitlam Coun. Brent Asmundson, a bus driver with the Coast Mountain Bus Co., owns two properties on Burke Mountain, including his own residence; • and Port Moody Coun. Rick Glumac owns shares in 26 corporations (including Dreamworks Animation SKG, which he worked for on Shrek 2, Madagascar and Over the Hedge). The 2014 financial disclosures are not posted online, which is not a requirement under the provincial act; however, the statements are available for public viewing on weekdays at the city clerk’s offices. jwarren@tricitynews.com

CORRECTION

Incorrect information was published in The Tri-City News Jan. 17, 2014 “Board votes to sell lands.” The board did not vote to swap Victoria Park land with Coquitlam but to “work with the City of Coquitlam to reach an agreement regarding the nine lots.”

Mayor Ralph Drew said many residents of the village of Belcarra, a neighbour of the Kinder Morgan terminal, have concerns about increased noise and lights that could potentially come from additional container traffic.

Belcarra seeks intervenor status for Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News

The village of Belcarra will be applying for intervenor status in the federal review of the $5.4-billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, the village council decided last week. Mayor Ralph Drew said the village is a neighbour to the Kinder Morgan terminal and,

Ralph DRew

theref o r e , would be affected by lights a n d n o i s e from additional

tankers. Residents are also concerned about the impact an oil spill would have on marine life in the sensitive habitat of Central Burrard Inlet,

Drew said. He plans to raise concerns about the need for a site-specific spill response plan to deal with oil leakage at the expanded Westridge Marine Terminal to protect three parks and three habitat areas, including Belcarra Regional Park. He wants pre-staged oil booms as well as a rapid response and containment plan to ensure

that oil is cleaned up before it destroys the ecosystem, and recreation and economic uses of the waterway. “There are 12 issues that the [National Energy Board] hearings will be focusing on. I easily identified five different things that are applicable to us,” Drew said. Belcarra has until Feb. 12 to file the application.

An area of Coquitlam that has long been a “dead zone” for a wireless company will soon have better reception. And the deal with Rogers Communications will generate $26,000 a year for the city and its optical network corporation. Last week, council approved an agreement with Rogers for two “Nova” towers on the west side of Como Lake Avenue and Mariner Way. The antenna towers will stand on the north and south corners and will hold street lights; they will also be twice the circumference of a regular street light, according to a report. The company will pay the city $7,000 annually for each pole plus $1,000 a month to QNet to lease the city’s underground cables. QNet GM Rick Adams said because the poles are under 15 m tall, public consultation isn’t required. The Rogers poles are the first to be negotiated under a new wireless protocol adopted by council in 2012 whose aim is to increase coverage as well as raise cash for the municipality. Recently, Rogers announced its plans to place telecommunications equipment inside the new bell tower at St. Andrew’s United Church in Port Moody. jwarren@ tricitynews.com

Then the news sank in and the veteran educator was flattered and honoured that his staff at Coquitlam Alternative Basic Education school (CABE) in Coquitlam had nominated him. “Any leader, when you get recognized for the work that you do, that’s the biggest honour you can get,” McNaughton said. Leah Pells, a CABE c o u n s e l l o r, s a i d McNaughton deserved the award because he is an amazing “boss and mentor.” “He gives all of his staff such autonomy with our students as at CABE we try to find more ways

to engage with our kids because the mainstream [school] has not worked,” Pells said in an email. McNaughton has been principal at CABE since 2008 and has seen the number of graduates increase from 32 to 88 last year. The school only enrols about 200 students, who come and go during the year, depending on their education needs. “We try to do things differently,” explained McNaughton, who said the school fosters relationships, encourages students to learn at their own pace and offers flexible scheduling. He is also appreciative of his “fabulous” staff

Four years for prolific offender nabbed after sports store robbery 37-year-old Tyson Wagner of PoCo pled guilty last week By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy NeWs

A man arrested in 2013 following a breakin at Blue Line Outdoor Sports in Port Coquitlam, in which an undisclosed number of weapons were stolen, has received four years in prison. Tyson Wagner was already deemed a prolific offender when police ar-

rested him last March on a number of charges, including break and enter, unauthorized possession of a firearm and possession of stolen property. Cpl. Scott Grimmer, a member of the Coquitlam RCMP’s prolific target team (PTT), said the sentence is an example of the effective-

ness of the Mounties’ crime reduction strategy. Because the majority of crime in the detachment area is committed by a small number of people, it did not take long for investigators to narrow down the list of suspects. “We provided Crown Counsel a complete and thorough police report,” he said. “Tyson Wagner has now pleaded guilty and received a four-year jail sentence.” The incident dates back to Dec. 4, 2012, when police responded to a call at a shop next

door to the targeted business. Someone had gained entry into an electrical room, but nothing was stolen. On Christmas Day 2012, Mounties again responded to a call at the shop, but this time the thieves attempted to ram a stolen vehicle through an exterior wall of the building. They were unable to get inside the store and the vehicle was abandoned a short distance from the scene. The final, successful attempt took place on the evening of Dec. 28. Wagner was spotted

on surveillance footage at the store earlier in the day, but left without making a purchase. Police spotted him again a week after the breakin hanging around the back of the business in the early morning hours of Jan. 7, 2013. A month-and-a-half later, following an extensive investigation, police executed a search warrant on Wagner’s PoCo home. Evidence related to the break-in at Blue Line was retrieved and the 37-year-old was arrested.

He ran over to the house to find the elderly woman, who he said lives at the home with her son and who often prays and walks in the yard, lying motionless on the ground. “I saw her red scarf and her clothes sitting there so I immediately knew it was her,” he said. “I went in the house to see if there was anybody there and I couldn’t find anybody so I ran back and took her vitals and then I started doing some CPR on her.” He said the woman worked as a greeter at her son’s acupuncture business, which operates out of the home.

Company is trying to derail Metro’s waste-to-energy strategy, says Brodie continued from front page

He accuses Metro of deliberately hamstringing MRFs because their advanced sorting machinery will pull too much paper and plastic out of the garbage, leaving insufficient combustible fuel to justify building a costly new incinerator. He called on Metro to suspend its wasteto-energy strategy for five years while mixedwaste MRFs like the one Belkorp proposes are built and tested. “Step back on this $500 million unnecessary expense,” Black urged of a possible second Metro incinerator. “Postpone it for five years. Let these facilities get up and running. See if they can get what they claim they will get out of the waste stream. And then assess the need afterwards for incineration.” Black said he sees room for three mixedwaste MRFs in Metro Vancouver — the proposed one in Coquitlam, one already mostly built by Northwest Waste

tri-city newS file photo

Belkorp Environmental Services, a firm that wants to build a $30-million garbage-sorting facility in Coquitlam, said its technology can pull recyclables directly from the waste stream. Solutions in South Vancouver and potentially a third one in Surrey, in addition to another in the Fraser Valley. He argues all garbage should go through a MRF before it’s landfilled or burned to retrieve materials. “Our company philosophy now is we don’t want to take unprocessed waste to landfill.” MRFs weren’t contemplated when Metro’s solid waste managmement plan was drawn up, but it calls for the region to maximize recycling and material recovery ahead of either landfilling or incineration.

Malcolm Brodie, chair of Metro’s zero waste committee, said he sees no reason to delay the waste-to-energy pro-

curement process, which could see Metro burn an additional 370,000 tonnes of garbage per year starting in 2018. The regional district will begin optioning potential sites in the next few weeks. Belkorp is trying to derail the strategy so more garbage might keep getting trucked to Cache Creek, he said. Brodie said Metro’s n e w by l aw l e av e s enough room for MRFs to operate, and proponents who disagree probably want to see their machines take over the

job of separating recyclables from households. “We’ve got a whole industry that has been generated because Metro Vancouver has insisted for 20 years on source separation,” Brodie said, adding a MRF-centred model could unravel years of recycling education efforts, result in more contamination of recyclables and undercut existing green industries. “I have a hard time believing we can put the solution in private hands like that and it will get us to our goal.” jnagel@blackpress.ca

One of Jane’s patients attests to the effectiveness of Acupuncture: • Mr. Daniel, an eighty one year old gentlemen, who is living in Coquitlam was suffering from an enlarged prostate gland. This is a general phenomenon in older men. He suffers from frequent visits to the bathroom, mostly at night, sometimes up to 10 times a night. After three visits to this clinic together with Chinese herbal medicine, he felt the symptoms had gone and he doesn't have the urgency to visit the bathroom often.

Dr. Bob McCormack, left, and Dr. Dory Boyer of Port Moody’s Eagle Ridge Hospital will be helping out the Canadian National Team at the Sochi Olympics next month.

Columbian Hospital in New Westminster. It will be their challenge to keep athletes and support staff healthy and injury-free — a difficult job given the competitive nature of the athletes as well as the challenging winter conditions. “It’s trickier,� Dr. McCormack acknowledged. “There’s speed and the hard services and injuries are a big part of it.� Neither is worried about about security, however, having already been to Russia numerous times. Both are confident the country is up to the challenge of providing a well-organized and secure Olympic winter games. They’ll be living in dorms and eating the same buffet meals offered to the athletes. The working conditions for the volunteer postings aren’t glamourous, but there are perks. They’ll be in the middle of the action with a view of the games that few get to enjoy. It’s a thrill, both say, and they can’t get enough of it. “We get to watch the best athletes compete at the highest level possible and help the Canadian team reach their highest goals,� Dr. McCormack said. And if Canada’s Winter Olympic athletes add to their 26-medal haul from four years ago, so much the better.

“It’s a rush to be at a place where people are performing at such a high level.�

Two orthopedic surgeons at Port Moody’s Eagle Ridge Hospital are heading off to Sochi, Russia next week to look after the medical health needs of the Canadian Olympic Team. Dr. Bob McCormack will be the chief medical health officer for the Canadian Olympic team and physician for the curling team while Dr. Dory Boyer will be working with the bobsleigh, luge and skeleton teams. Both surgeons are experienced sports physicians who are looking forward to helping some of the biggest names in Canadian sports. “It’s a rush to be at a place where people are performing at such a high level. This is where they come to achieve their hopes and dreams,� said Dr. Boyer, a Vancouver resident. Dr. McCormack, a New Westminster resident whose daughter calls him an “Olympic junkie,� is a frequent member of Canada’s medical team at international events: He was Canada’s chief medical officer at the 2006 and 2010 Olympic Winter Games and at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. In each role he was responsible for the medical preparedness of Canada’s Olympic Team. Dr. Boyer has applied his skills as a physician and surgeon at a dozen multi-sport games, including the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, working with VANOC, and was in Russia this past summer for the World University Games. Next Wednesday, they head to Russia to prepare for their job, leaving behind their practices at ERH and at Royal

Burke battle

PICTURE THIS adrian raeside

News that the provincial government is selling 584 acres of land on Burke Mountain to pay off some bills may come as a shock to many people. Judging by comments on a recent Tri-City News story, many feel there’s already enough development creeping up the mountain into bear and wildlife habitat, while others think selling off Crown assets is a poor way to manage the budget. But is there enough of a protest to get the B.C. government to change their minds on selling this potentially valuable property? In Port Moody, residents fought off the sale of Neighbourhoods 3 and 4 and, after a referendum, land that was slated for housing was turned into the 138acre Bert Flynn Park. Could that kind of a protest be mounted today? It would be a tough slog, indeed. Premier Christy Clark was voted in on a jobs and balanced budget mandate and those assets are apparently necessary to meet her goals. As for Coquitlam, it will soon be considering the northwest Burke Mountain development area — much of which the province owns — and envisions it supporting 8,000 people in the future. If turning the bus around is not an option, Coquitlam residents must keep their foot on the gas pedal. They must be vigilant in ensuring that this undeveloped area is properly planned, with wildlife values kept in place and scrupulous attention to communicating these values. It cannot be “business as usual” on slopes this steep, so high into bear and cougar country. Council must not be swayed by short-term market conditions. If that land is to be properly developed, erosion control must be stringent and monitored, land for schools and other infrastructure must be in place, garbage must be tightly controlled, and parking and other measures built with low-impact on the land. We trust the city has learned from its past mistakes on Burke and will ensure that if this land has to be developed it will be with the highest of environmental, community and social values in place.

Pipeline debate: Old man take a look at your facts BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA eilYoung’s anti-oilsands concert tour was the perfect distillation of the American enviro-assault on its dependent northern neighbour that’s been going on for a decade or more. After touring Fort McMurray in his electric car with actor-turned-protester Daryl Hannah, the 68-year-old Young covered all the big propaganda hits and added his own fantasy facts. It looks like a war zone up there! Hiroshima! If it keeps going it will be like the Moon! There’s no reclamation! Tar sands oil is all going to China, and that’s why their air is so bad! All of those statements are false.  And then Young dropped his own nuclear bomb, claiming cancer rates in Fort Chipewyan are 30% higher than, well, somewhere else.  Chief Allan Adam of the

N

Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation has cited a discredited study by former community doctor John O’Connor to press the same claim. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta reviewed O’Connor’s claims in 2009. It concluded that “Dr. O’Connor made a number of inaccurate or untruthful claims” about cancer patients, and then refused to provide patient information after his claims made international news. Retired professor David Schindler toured with Young and continued to push the health scare, referring darkly to newer research showing increased mercury and PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon) contamination. When you peel back the propaganda and journalistic hype, these studies mainly reveal that such toxins are on the rise, but are found in much higher concentrations around large cities where fuel is consumed. The cancer claims were then debunked by a Royal Society of Canada expert panel in 2010. This cancer scare is the most damaging and dishonest part of the selective attack on Alberta.  The oil industry, politicians and most of the

media seem unwilling to examine it critically.  Climate scientist-turned-politician Andrew Weaver was at Young’s Toronto news conference. He says there were no questions for him, Adam or Young’s other validator, David Suzuki, who previously worked with Schindler on a slanted oilsands documentary for the CBC. Weaver calculates that Young’s claim about greenhouse gas emissions is substantially correct, if you include emissions from the finished fuels. Weaver refused any comment on the cancer claims. Young included the obligatory sneering comparison between Stephen Harper and George W. Bush, which is another sign he’s lived in California too long. He seemed unaware that the NDP’s Thomas Mulcair and Liberal leader Justin Trudeau support continued oilsands development. As for moonscapes, Young could have driven his famous electric Lincoln from his Redwood City mansion on a hill to nearby Bakersfield, to view the greasy expanses of closely packed pumpjacks reaching to the

horizon, still expanding due to hydraulic fracturing. Young could have visited North Dakota, where the second shale oil train explosion luckily didn’t kill anyone. It seems there will be no remake of Young’s classic Kent State lament dedicated to 47 Dead in Old Quebec. That’s American oil, so no protests. Chief Adam was frank in an interview on CTV about using the “Honour the Treaties” tour to strengthen his legal position. Young’s concert tour put $75,000 in his fund to pay lawyers. Oil isn’t the only thing being extracted here. By the end of the tour Sunday, Young and Adam conceded they weren’t trying to shut the Athabasca oilsands down, just start a dialogue. Thanks to uncritical media coverage, there will no doubt be discussions at dinner tables and in classrooms all over the world about the terrible Alberta tar sands and the cancer they don’t actually cause.

This flyer was handed out to all present at the Jan. 13 PoCo council meeting. I liked the diagram with the pie chart where it shows where our tax dollars are spent. It is a great visual aid.

A draft Port Coquitlam budget is calling for a 0.34% property tax decrease. However, if residents choose, a 1 to 1.5% increase will be added to go toward the replacement of the PoCo Recreation Complex. proposed property tax increase, as well as asking how we want our tax dollars spent. In my opinion, asking

for an increase of approximately $25, or 1 to 1.5% on property taxes, doesn’t seem like an unreasonable amount

to be seeking. I believe money destined to be spent on replacing the well-used, aging PoCo recreation complex and seniors centre is money well spent. Countless families in the community will benefit from this enhancement. I can also think of a couple of other places I would like to see my tax dollars spent. I have expressed these by filling in the survey and submitting it online. Please consider having your voice heard by Jan. 31 by providing your feedback to the city. This concept of asking for public input is democratically the right thing to do. Nancy McCurrach Port Coquitlam

More rec centre cost info needed before tax increase The Editor, Re. “Down or up?” (The Tri-City News, Jan. 17). The 1 to 1.5% proposed tax increase for the aging Port Coquitlam recreation complex and seniors centre was poorly presented in this year’s 2014 Budget at a Glance. One would question if it is a onetime levy or one that is carried over for a number of years?  Is the city not putting the cart before the horse? They have set aside $250,000 in this year’s budget for recreation complex site planning. So why not wait, find out the total construction cost, put a budget together and then ask taxpayers for approval? What they are asking now is for taxpayers to give them a blank cheque and we will be told the final figures later. What kind of budgeting is this? Not too many years ago, PoCo taxpayers got burned when the final cost of the Coast Meridian overpass came in much higher than projected. Perhaps the city budgeting department could further enlighten taxpayers as to how some of the finer budgeting details of this project will unfold. Al Williams  Port Coquitlam

Suwa’lkh School students Emily West and Nikolas Dragon, both in Grade 11, practise guitar in the art and music room. The program for aboriginal students in Coquitlam incorporates First Nations culture in the curriculum and has been credited with helping raise graduation rates in School District 43.

Aboriginal students get a first beginning at Suwa’lkh [more-online

The Tri-CiTy News

A group of high school students who used to spend more time out of the classroom than in say a welcoming environment and a learn-atyour-pace style of teaching that incorporates Aboriginal culture is keeping them on track to graduate. The students in Grade 6 to 12 attending School District 43’s new Suwa’lkh School in the former Millside elementary in Coquitlam said they look forward to a day of learning where they used to avoid it. JJ Jay, whose heritage is Metis, had sketchy attendance at Gleneagle secondary where he still plays rugby. The structure of his old school didn’t suit him, nor did the rules, and the feeling that he could never measure up. “I didn’t like it,” Jay says of his old school where he sometimes felt labeled as That Kid. At Suwa’lkh, Jay said he feels valued, a sentiment shared by many of his peers who said they sometimes felt lost at the bigger schools but feel like part of a family at the smaller school. There are only 45 students attending school at Suwa’lkh, although principal Laurie Ebenal hopes to enrol up to 100 in the coming years. She said Suwa’lkh has made great strides in attracting students from other schools because it offers a full-range of academics as well as electives such as PE, music and art. “It’s a school of choice,”

www.tricitynews.com Ebenal said the school is a prime example of the province’s personalized learning mandate. Students do projectyou saw it in their based learning areas of interest, on the and the school strives to meet tricitynews theirwww. individual needs.com and goals. For Emily West, the school is both a safe haven and a safety net. She was in danger of not graduating after missing so many classes. Now after a year and a half at Suwa’lkh, she’s one of the leaders, who has finally found her footing. She has learned to play the guitar and do pottery, helps plan, shop and cook hot lunches for students and is doing well in her academics. “They were like me,” she said of the other students. “They were ready to do right and focus on themselves.” It’s rare for Suwa’lkh to lose a student and the school is helping SD43 achieve a 90% graduation rate, one of the highest for aboriginal students in the province. And the name fits well — Suwa’lkh means First Beginning and for many students it is. • Support from donors is welcome to help pay for food, supplies and equipment, which are in short supply. To be a community partner with Suwa’lkh, contact Laurie Ebenal at lebenal@sd43. bc.ca.

DIANE STRANDBERG PHOTO

Faith Adams, a Grade 8 student, takes part in a “smudging” ceremony at Suwa’lkh school in which sacred sweetgrass, cedar, sage and tobacco are burned and the smoke is wafted onto another person, using the feather, to drive out bad spirits, feelings or influences. Ebenal explained. “They make the choice to come. I don’t take a kid until they choose to come.” The difference between Suwa’lkh and a typical high school or middle school is noticeable as soon as you walk in to the second-floor classrooms.You can smell lasagna cooking — the students plan, shop and cook for the school — there are cedar boughs in the band room, native art on the wall and large dream catchers hanging from the ceiling. Downstairs, First Nations carver Rick Harry is showing a group of students how to measure up a yellow cedar log to carve a totem pole

and, in a counselling office, an abalone shell filled with the ashes of sweetgrass, cedar, sage and tobacco sits on a table next to a feather. It’s used by teachers when students ask for a “smudging” to “cleanse” themselves according to native teaching. It’s this potent mix of Aboriginal culture that intrigues students and keeps them coming back. Faith Adams, whose heritage is Sto:lo, does animal card readings both as a way to get in touch with her spiritual side and to get marks for English. “It’s part of my culture,” she said. “I believe you can look at an animal and take a story away from it.”

PoCo heritage seeking waterfront photos, artifacts The PoCo Heritage Society is gearing up for a new museum display at the end of the month and is turning to members of the community for help. Photographs, stories and artifacts related to Port Coquitlam’s waterfront are being sought

for the Heritage Afloat exhibit, which will run for six months beginning at the end of January. The society is particularly interested in information about two pioneers, who were prominent figures on the rivers in PoCo’s early days.

“We are struggling to find information on Capt. Bill Benneck, who ran the ferry here in PoCo and also Walter Oliver, who ran the Pitt Lake Express,” said society president Pippa VanVelzen in an email. “So if anyone has info on these two people,

or dozens of Tri-City art students, Sunday will be the first time they’ll showcase their skills in a public setting. It’s a concept some view with trepidation but, for others, they welcome the opportunity to build their portfolios as they prepare for post-secondary institutions. Take Jensen Tung, for example. He’s a Heritage Woods secondary student in Port Moody who had three of his short films accepted into the third annual Emerging Talent Festival, which runs Sunday afternoon at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way). Tung directed, wrote and edited all three, acted in two (Catch The Girl and Iron Fist: The Arrival) and, during the production of From Me To You, he took on the role as camera operator as well. “Having my films shown at the Evergreen Emerging Talent Festival is very important to me as it is a great

opportunity for my work to be noticed by the public,” Tung told The Tri-City News. “Film is meant to be shown and enjoyed by an audience so this festival is a great way to do just that.” For the curated film event, judges Fred Ewanuik (Corner Gas, Dan For Mayor), Matthew Clarke (Convos With My 2-Year-Old) and Matthew Kowalchuk (Lawrence & Holloman) will be audience and will award prizes for best film, director, editor, cinematographer, performer and screen playwright. As well, the crowd will get a chance to pick their favourite of the 11 shorts screened in the studio theatre. Still, it won’t just be film under the limelight at Emerging Talent. The fest will also serve as the official opening for Emerging Talent 17, a Grade 12 art exhibit juried by retired art teachers Jerry Pietrasko, Eunice Hodge and Keith Levang plus Tri-City artist Mandara Lebovitz. The show runs until Feb. 27 and patrons can vote on the People’s

Choice Award (the winner will be announced in early March). Dr. Charles Best secondary’s Harper Eskuri, 18, has two pieces on the gallery walls: My Younger Brother (watercolour) and My Beating Heart (acrylic). The former is a painting of her 15-year-old brother when he was a baby. “I wanted to show how similar the two versions of him are — yet how much one can change from a baby to adulthood,” said Eskuri, who has been creating since childhood.

“In painting the portrait, I saw details of his face that had carried on to adolescence that I had not noticed before, such as the curves of his nose or the shape of his chin.” By contrast, Stephanie Nguyen — an 18-year-old student at Gleneagle secondary — only took up the paint brush last summer. Nguyen has three works on display for Emerging Talent 17: Louder Than Words (a triptych acrylic on canvas that was featured on The News’ Things To Do page last Friday); Nature or Nurture? (a ceramic bust); and What Happened to the Roses? (a mixed media sculpture). Nguyen attributes her growth as an artist to her Gleneagle teachers, Mike McElgunn and Melanie Stokes, and to Don Portelance, a retired Centennial art teacher who now instructs gifted students at Place des Arts. Besides visual art and film, attendees of the Emerging Talent Festival will also hear songs from Port Moody secondary’s Julia Montgomery and Tati Adry, a musical duo.

Rick Rinder is the new manager for Terry Fox Theatre, which is attached to Terry Fox secondary school in Port Coquitlam.

A new theatre manager for Fox Terry Fox Theatre has a new manager. And he’s looking for volunteers to give him a hand to run the Port Coquitlam venue that’s attached to the high school on Riverwood Gate. Maple Ridge resident Rick Rinder, who started on the job last November, said he’s starting from scratch and would like ushers, front-of-house staff and technical and web support from the community. To help, email foxtheatre@gmail. com. A Banff School of Arts-trained performing stage manager for 35 years — including at the Vancouver Playhouse and at various arts centres around Western Canada — Rinder replaces the Port Coquitlam Theatre Society (formerly known as the

Theatre Advisory Group, or TAG), a non-profit group that had a rocky relationship with School District 43 and bowed out of its operating agreement last June. Rinder said his vision is to create a balance between the school’s needs and community bookings for the 336seat theatre. And he has has some big plans in mind for partnerships with the school such as launching a state-of-the-art stagecraft program. “We have such a beautiful theatre here and it’s a shame the school doesn’t have a course that teaches youth how to design and build sets,” he said.“They can use that experience as they go on for further education such as Capilano University.” jwarren@tricitynews.com

The Tri-Cities have been able to enjoy Mongolian BBQ since September of 2009. Since then, delighted diners have been creating their own taste treats and having them cooked up right in front of them at King’s Mongolian Grill. This Month however a transformation has taken place. You can still enjoy the fabulous food here, but the restaurant itself has changed hands! It is now called Sun Mongolian Restaurant and is under new ownership. Not only has the name changed, the interior has undergone a facelift and the exterior sports a bright new sign! That’s not all that has changed. The prices are lower and there are also more items to choose from when you create your master piece! This isn’t just eating, it’s fun! First you choose your weapon. At lunch, pick a Small Bowl (from $5.99),a medium ($6.99) a large bowl ($7.99) or All You Can Eat ($11.99). The All You Can Eat includes soup, salad and rice. At dinner, (after 4:30 pm) All You Can Eat is $13.99, but when you dine-in, not only do you get get salad, rice, and soup, but also shrimp chips, pineapple and veggie spring rolls. You can also choose a Small Bowl (from $7.99)or a large bowl 9.99). A Kids Bowl is also available for $3.99 at lunch or dinner. (5 years or under) Take-out is available as well, for the Medium and Large Bowls. Once you’ve chosen your bowl size, you can pick between Lamb, Pork, Beef and Chicken, Tofu and now seafood (for an additional $2.99/100 grams),(or some of each) and 15 types of veggies, as well as rice and egg noodles. Now for the best part! The sauces! 15 to choose from! Mix and match to create your own, or try one of their Special combos. I like to experiment!

Club touring production has been well-received, with a mix of demographics in the crowd — many of whom have fond memories of the Hollywood blockbuster. She enjoys suburban arts venues. “There are these beautiful theatres in the Lower Mainland,” she said. “People shouldn’t have to come into Vancouver to see theatre because it develops the cultural community in their own community by feeling it’s theirs.” Lipman, who will be performing for the first time in Coquitlam, added,“I like touring and being in a different place every night, and a different audience that has a different take on things. It’s very interesting.” • Driving Miss Daisy runs from Jan. 28 to Feb. 1 at the Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam).

While some Coquitlam businesses aren’t faring well with the Evergreen Line construction, a few are capitalizing on the chaos.

With the parking lot torn up at the Coquitlam venue for the terminus station, the service teamed up with Evergreen Cultural Centre to get older patrons to the show safely.

Streaking Express torch Smoke Eaters By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News

Things are beginning to click for the Coquitlam Express. The Express turned in a dominating performance in a 7-2 rout over the Trail Smoke Eaters during a Sunday matinee at Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex. Jeremy McNeil staked the Smokeys to a 1-0 lead two minutes into the game but from there it was all Express. Corey Mackin pulled Coquitlam even a minute later and Canon Pieper put the Express on top just two minutes after that. Express coach Barry Wolff said the flu is going through the Trail lineup and they looked tired playing their third game in three days. “They got a couple APs [affiliated players] in the lineup. As much as our guys worked hard to get the win, sometimes you take advantage of your opponent,” said Wolff, whose Express took a 5-1 lead into the third period and outshot Trail 35-30. Mackin notched a pair for Coquitlam while Joey Santucci supplied a goal and two assists. Marc Biega and Zach Hodder each had a goal and an assist, with singles going to Daniell Lange and Canon Pieper. Adam Rockwood and Cody Boyd each netted a pair of assists.

Dan EbEnal/ThE Tri-CiTy nEws

Coquitlam defenceman Marc Biega ties up Trail’s Scott Davidson as forward Corey Mackin slides into goalie Gordie Defiel in the Express’ 7-2 win over the Smoke Eaters Sunday afternoon. “We played four lines the whole night and all four lines were going,” said Bo Pieper, who assisted on brother Canon’s goal. “I think all four lines added in a goal so that’s always good. It always helps out when all four are going.” The win was the fourth straight for the Express, their longest streak of the season. The Express doubled

the Chiefs 6-3 Saturday night in Chilliwack, a day after they stopped the Chiefs 4-2 in Coquitlam. “We’ve got a little streak and sometimes it’s all confidence,” said Wolff, who thinks the team has become stronger with the addition of defencemen J.D. Cotroneo and Mark Whiteley at the trading deadline earlier this month.

“We’re just eliminating mistakes and we’re learning. Some of the personnel that we shipped out just hurt us at times, with bad goals against just cause of simple turnovers. Now we’re moving the puck and eliminating those mistakes.” Canon Pieper, Cody Boyd, Nicholas Rasovic and Jace Hennig did the damage for the Express Friday. Canon Pieper

had two goals and two assists against the Chiefs Saturday while brother Bo also chipped in a pair of goals. Hennig and Cameron Marks also scored for the Express, who got two assists from Boyd. The wins came without Express captain Ryan Rosenthal, who was injured in Coquitlam’s 7-3 win over the Surrey Eagles last Wednesday.

“ H e ’ s g o t a p a rtial collapsed lung,” s a i d Wo l f f, a d d i n g Rosenthal had surgery on Saturday and hopes to have a better idea on how long he will be out of the lineup after he sees the doctor again this week. R os e n t h a l s c or e d twice in the win over the Eagles, with Canon Pieper and Mackin also netting a pair. Hennig had the other Express

goal while Rockwood had four assists and Hodder and Bo Pieper both recorded a pair of helpers. The Express host the Merritt Centennials Friday at 7 p.m., their last contest at the Po i r i e r S p o r t a n d Leisure Complex for more than two weeks as they head out on an eight-game swing on the road. sports@tricitynews.com

Panthers scratch out pair of wins heading into stretch drive Th e Po r t M o o dy Panthers are getting hot at the right time. The Panthers have reeled off a pair of wins as the Pacific Junior Hockey League heads into the final three weeks of the regular season. The Panthers stopped the North Delta Devils 5-2 in Port Moody. That win came on the heels of a 4-2 victory over

the visiting Grandview Steelers Saturday night. Adam Rota had a goal and two assists in Saturday’s win while Rayne Schwinghammer added a goal and an assist and Nicco Marconato and Kurt Sonne chipped in singles. Christian Plain was strong in the Panthers’ net, turning aside 29 shots as the Steelers out-

shot Port Moody 31-21. Rota, Schwinghammer, Marconato, Wolfgang Schoenefuhs and Sammy Zeinab supplied the offence Monday. The Panthers travel to Aldergrove Wednesday to take on the first-place Kodiaks. Port Moody now has 20 points in 38 games, one point back of the fourth-place Mission

City Outlaws. A possible playoff berth could be on the line when the Panthers host the Outlaws Saturday at 7:45 p.m. “We’ve started to make some progress now and that’s going to be our home run game,” said Panthers coach and GM Jamie Jackson. “We’re going to have to put a couple more

wins together but that will be a big one for us.” But the Panthers will be without their leader on the blue-line for the stretch drive. Daniel Delbianco has signed with the Chilliwack Chiefs of the B.C. Hockey League. Delbianco, a 19-yearold Coquitlam product, led the Panthers in scoring with 19 goals and

Tri-Cities’

The Premier Club

For further information on the Club:

33 assist in 29 games when he signed with Chilliwack earlier this month. He has put up one assist in five games with the Chiefs. Delbianco, whose 12 power play goals was tied for the lead in the PJHL at the time of his signing, is no stranger to the BCHL, spending most of the 2011/12 season with the Alberni

Valley Bulldogs. “Daniel’s signing with Chilliwack leaves a void on our roster no doubt, but at the end of the day, moving players up to a higher level is our ultimate goal,” said Jackson. “We wish Daniel nothing but the best with the Chiefs and thank him for everything he’s done for the Panthers this season.”
