Mayors in charge: Stone Trans. minister says referendum may be put off until next year By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

Tr a n s p o r t a t i o n Minister Todd Stone is promising Metro Vancouver mayors new authority to set priorities for transit and road expansion — and a new deadline to decide if they want more funding sources.

Stone announced Thursday he will bring in legislation this spring to give local governments authority to set policy, decide on fares, deal with customer service issues and sell assets in the system. He also called on the mayors to work with the current TransLink board, which has that authority until the law is changed. “The ball will be firmly in the court of the mayors’ council now,” Stone told reporters in Vancouver. Stone released a let-

avoiding a referendum on new funding sources in conjunction with

November’s municipal elections. The province “is willing to extend the referendum window to no later than June 30, 2015,” the letter says, as long as the mayors agree on new projects and costing by June 30 of this year. If that deadline goes by without agreement on the basis for a plan, the referendum will be delayed to the 2017 municipal elections and the province will withdraw its offer to pay the costs. see SYSTEM, page A7

Naming places, honouring vets Black and Coyle seek to add vets’ names to maps By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News

P

Michael Coyle, spokesperson for Coquitlam Search and Rescue, said his organization will assist by finding unnamed geographical features in remote areas, such as Pinecone Burke Provincial Park, that could be named after local veterans. He’ll work with groups such as the Burke Mountain Naturalists to augment his own local knowledge. “Most of the things we can see have names but just beyond those there

here are some places already named for Tri-City veterans: HaNSON LakE

He died Feb. 8, 1944 when his plane was shot down over the North Sea. He is commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial, Surrey, United Kingdom and on a plaque at Ioco United Church.

the world wars by naming mountains and lakes after them is fitting. “It’s another way to honour our traditions,”he said. He believes GeoBC would also be supportive of naming applications for local deceased veterans. “I do know from hiking a lot they have a soft spot for servicemen, for sure,” Coyle

Elsie Van Leeuwen was distraught when her brother joined the air force and was devastated when he never made it back to his Coquitlam home. Winter Lake was officially named by Geo BC in 2010, two years before Elsie Van Leeuwen died, and Black’s assistance was invaluable, Barry Van Leeuwen said.

“I think it was suitable having a lake named after him. Winter Lake does feed into Coquitlam Lake, which is part of our reservoir. I’d tell mom: ‘Every time you have a glass of water, a drop of that water came from Winter Lake, and when you have a glass of water, you can remember him.’” dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

ort Moody’s Guy Black is teaming up with Coquitlam Search and Rescue to have lakes, mountains or other geographical features named after local veterans who died in the two world wars. The initiative comes as the world acknowledges significant anniversaries for both wars — 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War and 75 years since the Second World War began. Black has already assisted three families in having lakes and a ridge in nearby provincial parks named for deceased Coquitlam and Port Moody veterans (see sidebar) and is seeking contact with other veterans’ families who may be interested in his help. “I’m doing it as a favour because I like to do it,” said Black, who has campaigned a number of times for recognition for vets, most recently those who served in the Korean War. “It’s about remembrance and a lasting monument.” He wants to assist families with archival research and then help them file their applications with GeoBC, which manages natural resource information in the province. “My offer is for everyone in the Tri-Cities, for anyone who was a TriCity resident who joined up and was killed.”

Province playing politics: King Challenge is an ‘admission,’ says CTA’s president By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News

The president of the Coquitlam Teachers’ Association says the province should return to the bargaining table with serious proposals instead of trying to rewrite history with its appeal of a B.C. Supreme Court decision ordering a return to 2002 rules. “Rather than deal with teachers, they are just ‘catastrophizing’ and playing politics,” said

CHARLEY KING Charley King. “What they need to do is get back to the bargaining table and sort this out.” King said he was disappointed at comments made by Education Minster Peter Fassbender about the

recent Supreme Court decision on the validity of the Education Improvement Act, 2012. Fassbender said he disagreed with the decision because it centred on the union’s interests, not student needs, and was unaffordable, stating that the government planned to appeal the decision. “It is the BCTF’s job to defend its members’ interests and has done so with passion and vigour. But it is government’s responsibility to balance those interests against the best interests of students, their families, and the 4.6 million British Columbians who

already invest nearly $5 billion into the K-12 education every year. That is why we will appeal Justice Griffin’s decision,” Fassbender stated in a press release. But King said appeals are usually made on an error in law, not because someone doesn’t like the decision. King also said the province’s position that it can’t afford to accept the decision because of the cost shows the government has been underfunding education for years. “It’s a bit of an admission they are shortchanging kids by hundreds of millions of dol-

lars compared to prior to 2002.” Fassbender said the latest ruling could potentially cost the B.C. government more than $1 billion, which he called “completely unaffordable for taxpayers.” But the appeal will focus on Justice Susan Griffin’s interpretation of constitutional rights in union negotiations. BC Teachers’ Federation, meanwhile, estimates that 600 teachers would have to be hired to bring class sizes up to the Canadian average. BCTF’s current contract expired in June. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com — with files from Tom Fletcher

Local senior loses $2,100 in scam continued from front page

The caller claimed she was in a rental car when the collision happened and that she was being held in custody and needed money immediately. She claimed she had retained legal aid. Then, a man claiming to be her lawyer spoke to Chisholm to explain he had gotten her granddaughter off on drunkdriving charges. The man asked her to wire $2,100 through We s t e r n U n i o n t o We s t m o u n t , Q u e . Chisholm complied. The fake granddaughter called back later to say the money was slow 4.3125” x 8”

to arrive and told her more trouble had arisen with other injured passengers. When Chisholm said she wasn’t going to send anymore cash without talking to her own lawyer, the line went silent. When Chisholm spoke with her granddaughter the next day, she said she knew nothing of a car crash and had not left B.C. It was then that Chisholm knew she’d been had and called the cops. So-called “grandparent scams” are nothing new to the Tri-Cities. Last September, a Port Moody senior was bilked out of $7,600 after he

took a call from a woman who claimed she was the 79-year-old man’s granddaughter. The caller said she had been in an accident, was being held by Quebec police and needed money wired to pay for damages. Four months later, an 80-year-old Coquitlam man got a similar call from someone who claimed to be his grandson. He was crying and told his “grandpa” to send bail money through Western Union so he could be released from jail. He did but when the man called his daughter afterward, he learned it was a hoax. Luckily, in his case, fraud investigators were 4_NE021G114

able to stop the wire transfer. Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung told The Tri-City News the investigation with Westmount police and Western Union is ongoing in the latest scam. He offered the following prevention tips: • Don’t give in: Resist the pressure to “act now” and be very wary of unsolicited calls. • Verify who you are dealing with: Ask for de-

tails from the caller, such as his/her name, whereabouts, etc. Then confirm them with other family members. • Better be safe than be sorry: Contact the police as they may be able to help verify the legitimacy of the telephone call.

WATCH OUT FOR CRA SCAM, TOO

If you get a call from the tax man with the number of a policeman, it’s a scam. Const. Luke van Winkel of Port Moody Police Department said the department has received numerous reports of people receiving a call from someone claiming to be from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) but whose number on call display shows as PMPD’s non-emergency line, 604-461-3456. He said the caller states the CRA either owes them a refund or that they owe the CRA back taxes that are to be paid immediately. The caller then attempts to gather personal information from the individual. In some cases, the caller threatens to have the person arrested if they refuse to co-operate. Van Winkel said these calls are not coming from PoMo Police and that the CRA will not request personal information of any kind by phone or email. Anyone with information about this scam or who has been victimized is asked to contact their local police.

System doesn’t work now, says Coquitlam’s mayor and repeats an offer for the chair and vice-chair of the mayors’ council to join the appointed board that now controls policy. The mayors were “blindsided” by Thursday’s announcement and offered two seats on the board, which they rejected earlier because they want full control, Heyman said. “The minister continues to threaten the mayors and hold sticks over their heads and give them deadlines,”he said. Stone’s offer includes a promise to provide one

continued from front page

Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart was cautiously optimistic about Stone’s comments yesterday but said he wanted to see the final details before offering comment on whether new regulations would be enough to improve TransLink governance. “The current situation doesn’t work at all,” Stewart told The Tri-City News.“The mayors’ council makes a decision once every year when asked to do so by TransLink. TransLink makes its decisions behind closed doors and doesn’t have to abide by elected officials.” But he conceded Stone’s comments suggest the province is willing to provide at least some acknowledgement that the situation needs fixing. “I actually have faith that Mr. Stone intends to do it differently,”he said. As for Stone’s recommendation that mayors agree on new projects and costing by June 30 to delay a referendum, Stewart said the mayors did a similar exercise a few years ago at the province’s insistence but their input was rejected.

MAYOR RICHARD STEWART NDP transportation critic George Heyman said Stone’s announcement lacks details of the promised new authority,

third funding for a replacement to the aging Pattullo bridge, which is designated as TransLink’s sole responsibility. Stone previously told municipal officials they can avoid a referendum if they decide to use their existing authority to raise property taxes to fund new roads, bridges and transit. tfletcher@blackpress.ca – files from Diane Strandberg, The Tri-City News

■ WHAT WE THINK:

B

ritish Columbians deserve nothing less than the $2.2-billion experiment in $7-a-day daycare available in Quebec, but this may be neither the time nor the government for bringing this about. Certainly, the economy and childhood outcomes could benefit from levelling the playing field for rich and poor parents. More babies may even be a result and more disposable income leads to more spending. But there are so many hurdles that prevent this from happening and even Quebec, the nation’s leader on this file, hasn’t had an easy go of its plan. In that Sweden of the North, there are waiting lists for this heavily subsidized care, especially for babies. In B.C., meanwhile, the anticipated $1.5-billion cost would be a heavy burden at a time when the government is arguing it can’t spend more on education, and it would be an ongoing cost that would probably increase with the professionalization and unionization of daycare workers. Should advocates take the idea off the table? No, for while it seems an impossible dream right now, it’s still worth discussing.

T

he level of finger-pointing, recrimination and just plain politics in the debate over a proposed Lower Mainland transportation referendum makes many people furious. They have every right to be, as the level of leadership from the premier, minister of transportation and most Metro Vancouver mayors has been deplorable. Few are ready to take any risks and come up with some kind of plan — not only for transportation improvements but also for means to fund those improvements. The idea of a referendum came up during last year’s provincial election campaign. People outside Metro Vancouver, who may even be more sick of the endless TransLink debate than those who live here, were generally delighted that Clark suggested taxpayers be

involved in selecting funding options. Whether it was a major factor in the outcome of the election or not is debatable but the BC Liberals did very well in ridings outside Metro Vancouver, with the exception of Vancouver Island. The referendum promise certainly didn’t hurt. Now, Premier Clark has to follow through with it, if for no other reason than the damage it will cause her if she doesn’t. She is well aware of the taxpayer revolt over the HST and has no plans to ignore taxpayers if big tax increases are on the horizon. But her government has made no serious effort to craft a question or set out a series of options for transportation. At the same time, Metro Vancouver mayors, who were supposed to be involved in the process, have been ignored. They have been increasingly vocal as they fear they will be punished if the referendum is held at the same time as municipal elections and they are tarred with TransLink tax

ou walk up to the machine, slide in your card (then reinsert it the correct way), punch a few buttons and walk away with money — your money, that you have temporarily entrusted to the bank. Royal Bank profits were $2.3 billion last quarter, up 12% from the previous year. RBC CEO Gordon Nixon’s 25% raise puts his remuneration at $12.7 million per year. Your ATM transaction costs the bank 36 cents to process and it charges you $2.00. So with each ATM transaction you give the bank $1.64. What’s two bucks? I couldn’t find Canadian statistics but U.S. banks made $7 billion from ATM fees in 2010. In what universe could this situation be construed as reasonable? Yet we defend ATM fees. “You pay for convenience,” we say, or “If we don’t let banks charge high ATM fees, they might not supply machines to Lac La Hache or smaller towns.” But banks don’t install ATM machines because they’re convenient, they install them because they make money, with or without exorbitant user fees. ATMs not only make money from

transactions, they save tellers’ wages. When was the last time you got money from a teller in a bank? And if a teller charged you $2 to withdraw $20 from your account, would you think it reasonable? Sure, we can avoid ATM fees by getting cash back from grocery stores or by going to our own bank or a credit union ATM, where there are no fees. But why should we have to? In the U.S., ATM fees are up to $6 in some places; yet in Europe, few ATMs charge any fee. Clearly, some countries don’t tolerate usurious fees. But Canada does. Our ATM fees are arbitrarily set by banks. It’s free money for them and we willingly fork over $1.64 each time we access our own money. If someone suggested that we pay $1.64 each time we use a bank machine, with the money going to public transit, we would all scream bloody murder.Yet we are fine with giving $1.64 per transaction to a rich bank and its wealthy CEO. Federal NDP leader Tom Mulcair is right: It’s time we capped ATM fees. After all, a 50-cent maximum fee would still net banks 14 cents per transaction.

Where is money coming from for legal challenge? The Editor, Re. “B.C. government will appeal teacher ruling” (The Tri-City News, Feb. 5). To Education Minister Peter Fassbender: What budget line is the government tapping into for these court challenges against the teachers and their collective bargaining rights? Where has the money saved from students waiting for counsellors, hearing tests, speech pathologists, learning assistance and English as a second language help,

teacher-librarians, etc. been spent in the last 12 years? Kathy Leko, Port Moody

WHY FLETCHER?

The Editor, It’s bad enough that Tom Fletcher’s predictably right-wing column appears as often as it does in your newspaper. But to have him as your “reporter” on education is blatantly stacked in bias. He should not be a reporter on topics about which he also writes columns. He probably shouldn’t be a

has a proud history of unbiased, factual reporting on local and provincial developments. Mr. Fletcher’s contributions are caustic, cynical and ideological. I’m surprised and dismayed. I hope The TriCity News and Black Press will find a bona fide reporter for important issues like education. The Tri-City News is usually a reliable and thorough source of vital information on our local issues. Please keep it up. Kay Norton, Coquitlam

Cultural centre boss surprised by graffiti on sign By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News

The signage of one of Coquitlam’s artistic institutions — Evergreen Cultural Centre — was defaced two weeks ago in a pointless act of destruction, says its executive director. Large, bubble-shaped letters were painted over the centre’s iconic logo on the corner of the building at Glen Drive and Pinetree Way over the Jan. 25 weekend. “Defacing the Evergreen Cultural name is quite surprising,” said Jon-Paul Walden, who said some tagging is not unusual but such destruction is rare for the cultural centre responsible for hosting public art, music and theatrical programs in the city.

A reward

Advocate mourned

A longtime Coquitlam resident who represented hundreds of her neighbours for years died last month of a heart attack. Margaret Krenbrink was 81. Krenbrink, who made Coquitlam her home since the early 1950s, was best known for her community work as the president of the Ranch Park residents’ association. Her daughter, Diana, said her mother was also an avid gardener and loved to crotchet. “Whenever somebody needed something, she was always there to help,” Brown said. “She was giving and kind.” “She was one of our longtime council watchers,” said Coquitlam Coun. Mae Reid, who was friends with Krenbrink for 30 years. “She will be sorely missed by all her friends and family.” A service will be held on Feb. 15 at 1 p.m. at Burkeview Chapel (1340 Dominion Ave., Port Coquitlam). jwarren@tricitynews.com

A reward has been established to help find Shin Ik Noh.

The family of missing grandfather Shin Ik Noh is posting a $10,000 reward for information leading to the finding of Noh alive. Noh, 65, went missing Sept. 18, 2013. He is Korean, about 5’6” tall and 150 lb. and has Alzheimer’s disease. His son, Sam Noh, said the family continues to have hope that Noh is alive, and staying with someone. With no body recovered, the family is hoping the reward offering will result in more leads. Information is available at www.shin-noh. ca, email helpfindshin@ gmail.com or Facebook. com/shiniknoh. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Welcome to the driver’s seat

Honda knows how to make a good, solid car—and for 2014—things just got a little more interesting. Zack Spencer

Visit the 2014 Honda Civic gallery at DrivewayBC.ca

From rather ordinary to rather extraordinary Tampa, Florida – Being the best at something is an achievement, and doing it repeatedly is impressive. The Honda Civic’s 16-year streak as the best selling passenger car in Canada is nothing short of astounding. For the introduction the 2014 Civic, Honda chose usually sunny and hot Tampa, to introduce their latest update. It was sunny but anything from hot, with overnight temperatures near freezing. Honda has been improving the Civic continuously since the 7th generation model was introduced as a 2012 model. Last year, for 2013, they updated the styling, handling and interior of the 2013 model and now for 2014 they are at it again. Looks The styling focus for 2014 is on the coupe. Roughly 15 per cent of all Civics are sold as a coupe, the most dominant player in the small coupe market. Last year, this sedan received updates to the front and rear styling to help make it look more upscale and sophisticated, and this year the coupe gets a similar update to the front and back, but the changes are meant to provide a sportier look with a bit more aggression. The most aggressive version of both

addition, the front seats are very supportive and the steering wheel is low and small for a racy feel. What is new for both the sedan and this coupe is the introduction of Display Audio system that is available From fuel on the EX and Touring economy to reliability, models. This is a large iPad-like touch-screen resale value, cost design that lets the driver of ownership and access many functions Inside sportiness the 2014 from the radio to apps One of the reasons that Honda Civic is a good that piggyback off your the Civic is the best iPhone. (No Android apps selling car in Canada is choice yet but they are working the practical, yet sporty Zack Spencer on this.) This taps into the interior in both the sedan power of your phone, in and coupe. Many people, the big screen, with full including me, didn’t integration. I liked the speed and funcinitially like the split dash with the tion of the design but really missed a speedometer on the top and the tarotary dial to adjust the volume over a chometer on the bottom, but over time touch screen volume design. Yes, there this design has proven to be a winner. is a volume control on the steering I was wrong. The split design now wheel but one next to the radio would incorporates more information to see complete the package. without having to take your eyes off the road. The trip computer and other Drive functions like radio station information Honda has made one small change are just below the front window. In and one big change to help with fuel the sedan and coupe is the SI model that gets an even more forceful grille and front bumper design plus a rear spoiler and lower air diffuser. Wheel sizes have also changed with the regular coupe receiving 16-inch wheels, up from 15-inches, and the SI now bumps the size from 17-inches to 18-inches.

economy. The small one is the exhaust system has been adjusted in both the sedan and coupe to let the engine breath better, improving horsepower slightly from 140hp to 143hp. The big change is the introduction of an inhouse continuously variable transmission (CVT), replacing the old 5-speed automatic. This actually makes this little car more drivable and might be the best CVT on the market. The car snaps away from a stop and cruises with ease on the highway, with quick changes

Verdict Honda admits that their Civic might not be the top choice in every reason to buy a compact car but they are near the top in all categories. From fuel economy to reliability, resale value, cost of ownership and sportiness this car is a good choice. The many improvements made to the car over the past three-model-years, has taken the Civic from rather ordinary to rather extraordinary. They know how to make a good, solid, reliable car and for 2014t hings just got a little bit more interesting.

in the gear ratio that helps mimic a conventional automatic design. In addition, there is a sport mode and paddle shifters on the steering wheel to help liven things up. Honda has done a first rate job here and their efforts have been rewarded with a six per cent improvement in city fuel economy and an overall drop from 6.2L/100km combined to 6.0L, something very hard to do with such a small car. The driving dynamics of the Civic has always been very good due to a fully independent suspension and willing engine. The 143hp is a nice match for this car and the CVT is a great complement. The 5-speed manual is a blast to drive but it could use a 6th gear on the highway, as the high-revving engine can get noisy. The steering is crisp and the car overall instills a high level of confidence.

Question OF THE WEEK:

Should all new drivers be required to take a course with a driving school before taking a road test? Please explain why you have made that decision.

Safety Tip: B.C.’s Family Day offers many of us the first chance of taking a long weekend away. If you’re taking a road trip with your family, it’s a good idea to plan your rest stops ahead of time to avoid feeling fatigued behind the wheel and to give the kids a chance to burn off their energy.

Channelling your inner teenager

’’

Alexandra Straub

The best part about this teenage dream is that it’s not a teenage dream. It’s a reality. For those wanting to learn car control on an ice/snow track, it’s possible thanks to Porsche’s Camp4 training school. The track’s location is less than a couple of hours outside of Montreal, Quebec at Mecaglisse. It’s a playground for the German automaker’s, rear-wheel drive 911 Carrera S and Cayman, along with the allwheel-drive 911 Carrera 4S.

were stressed in any of the exercises were: look where you want to go not where you are going and the tires can only do one job at a time. The latter means that if you are trying to brake and turn in tandem, chances are you won’t have the maximum amount of traction and, therefore, you can upset the balance of the car and possibly not execute the manouevre you were trying to do. Even if you do make a mistake, you just dust off the snow and try again. The Camp4 program originated in Finland in 1996 and has since been executed around the world. It’s hard to believe how much you

can learn in such a short amount of time. And how much your face will hurt afterwards! – That’s not even because of sub zero temperatures. The cost of Camp4 is $5,195 (plus applicable taxes.) That includes three nights accommodation at The Esterel Suites & Spa (a luxury hotel in a nearby area,) two full days of driving and all your meals and transfers from the track. As I said, even if you mess up, you keep going. And no, you won’t get in trouble for having fun. It’s part of the learning experience. alexandra.straub @drivewaybc.ca

Even if you mess up, you keep going . . . it’s part of the learning experience.

You’ll have the opportunity to drive all three vehicles in various parts of the facility. Whether you are learning how to control over and understeer on the oval, or learning how to appropriately kick the back end out by blipping the throttle at the slalom, chances are, you’ll have a grin on your face the whole time. And if you spin out, you just keep going. The program commences with a briefing and drivers are introduced to instructors. Proper seating position is explained and then it’s time to hit the track. Exercises are done with two people to each car, and each Porsche is equipped with radios that are linked together. That way, the instructor can talk to you and give you pointers while they observe what’s going on. Sometimes you get praise. Sometimes you get constructive criticism. It’s just part of the process. Two major points that

Picture this: You’re a teenager with a driver’s licence, your wealthy parents have left you alone for the day and there has just been a huge snowfall. Turns out, they decided to take the SUV and the Porsche Carrera 4S is sitting in the garage. All your friends are busy so you’ll need to make your own fun. But how? The key to this stellar coupe, which generally remains under guard, somehow surfaces. Then you hear a voice calling your name. You look around and wonder if you’re imagining things. You look down at the key fob and it is speaking to you. Through its German accent, you decipher words like “traction control off,” “sliding sideways,” “car control” and — best of all — “you won’t get in trouble.” Before you know it, you’re nestled in the heated driver’s seat and having the time of your life, sliding sideways on a snow and ice track in a $140,000 sports car.

Classic trucks on screen By Rob Sass Vintage pickups and SUVs are among the hottest things in the collector car world. They are also popular on the big and small screen. Here are some examples. 1973 Ford F-250 (“The Blues Brothers”): After stiffing the proprietor of Bob’s Country Bunker on a huge bar tab, Jake and Elwood Blues take off in the Bluesmobile with “The Good Ole Boys” — the country and western act that they’d impersonated at said bar — in hot pursuit. Love the shot of two of the angry musicians in costume glaring out of the front windows of the camper shell, just before the truck winds up on its side.  1999 Ford F-150 SVT Lightning (“The Fast and the Furious”): Lead actor Paul Walker drove this very special Ford pickup. Produced by Ford’s Special Vehicles Team, the 1999 Lightning featured a super-

charged 5.4-litre V-8 that produced 360 hp. It was used as a parts getter in the first of the Fast and Furious movies.  1973 Ford F-100 (“The Dukes of Hazzard”): Yeah, it’s a shock, there were pickup trucks featured in the “Dukes of Hazzard.” Uncle Jesse always seemed to have a semi-ratty white Ford pickup. Most of the time it was a ’73 F-100 but in early episodes, he could be seen with a 1968 Ford stepside pickup and in later ones, a late 1970s F-250.

2014 Get healthy Feb. 15 in PoCo

Coquitlam’s Tommy Europe will be a big part of the Workout to Conquer Cancer on March 8 in Richmond.

SUBMITTED PHOTO

Work out for yourself and for a cause – Tommy will help O n March 8, the Workout to Conquer Cancer, benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation will harness the power of hundreds of people who are ready to lunge, stretch, and sweat their way toward a world free from cancer and Coquitlam’s Tommy Europe will be one of them. Europe is the no‐nonsense drill sergeant and host of the popular fitness shows The Last 10 Pounds Bootcamp and Bulging Brides, both on Slice TV. He will be bringing his Shred Bootcamp to the Richmond Olympic Oval and is looking forward to motivating workout participants while putting them through their paces and raising funds for cancer research. “We’re going to be a good lively group and it’s an event you don’t want to miss,”said Europe, who is the father of two little

girls and a longtime supporter of the BC Cancer Foundation. Although Europe has a reputation for toughness — he was one of the hardest-hitting defensive backs in the CFL and helped the BC Lions win the Grey Cup in 1994 — he promises his routine will be fun and easy to follow. As well, Europe will be the MC for the event, which runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and includes breaks, snacks, a healthy lunch and muscle-relaxing massages. Participants in the inaugural Workout to Conquer Cancer must be at least 16 years old and will be required to sign a waiver, which is avail-

able online. As well, each participant must raise a minimum of $600 for the BC Cancer Foundation. But Europe said the effort to participate will be worth it — and lots of fun for those who join.“It’s a full-day fitness challenge,” he said adding that the seven fitness centres will be tailored to participants.“There something for everybody.” Some of the events include Zumba, Fusion Kickboxing, Hip Hop, RockYour Core-Barre Fitness, Retro Aerobics and yoga. Europe is probably best known for his Shred Bootcamp, which has been around for five years. As a personal trainer, he offers a tough-

love approach with a regime that is constantly changing and improving. Participants get a first hand, practical experience of his brand of fitness, and what it takes to follow a healthy lifestyle. Europe has also performed in numerous television shows and feature films such as Chaos, Human Target,V and Supernatural, and is currently making appearances as a Reebok ambassador. His association with the BC Cancer Foundation comes from a desire to give back and to support lifesaving cancer research taking place at the BC Cancer Agency. “I’ve had family members, grandmothers and friends who are going through and have gone through losses due to cancer. I do know the importance of raising the awareness of the cause,” Europe said.

Periodontal Disease Increases the Risk of Coronary Heart Disease There are a lot of studies that suggest that Periodontal (gum) disease which is a leading cause of tooth loss may be associated with other chronic diseases, including coronary heart disease. Periodontal disease, is caused when bacteria in plaque (a sticky, colorless film that forms in the mouth) builds up between the gums and teeth. When the bacteria begin to grow, the gums surrounding the tooth can become inflamed. If left untreated, this inflammation can cause the gums and supporting bone structure to deteriorate. This can lead to gum recession or even tooth loss. According to the American Academy of Periodontology, people with periodontal disease are almost twice as likely to have coronary artery disease. While a cause-and-effect relationship has not yet been proven, studies have demonstrated that inflammation may be responsible for the association. Periodontal diseases are bacterial infections associated with inflammation, and a strong immune response, all of which may represent significant risk factors for hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), coronary heart disease, and heart attack. Atherosclerosis, also called “hardening of the arteries,” develops when deposits of fats and other substances in your blood begin to stick to the sides of your arteries. These deposits, called plaques, can build up and narrow your arteries, clogging them like a plugged-up drain. If these plaques ever block the blood flow completely, you could have a heart attack or stroke, depending on the location of the blockage. A recent study published in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association that studied 657 people without known heart disease found that people who had higher blood levels of certain disease-causing bacteria in the mouth were more likely to have atherosclerosis in the arteries in the neck. Therefore, treatment of periodontal diseases may also help with the management of other chronic inflammatory conditions such as heart disease. Adding these habits to your daily routine can help: Brushing after meals helps remove food debris and plaque trapped between your teeth and gums. Your tongue is a good place for bacteria to hide, so don’t forget to brush your tonguue. Flossing on a daily basis helps remove food particles and plaque between teeth and along the gum line that your toothbrush cannot reach. Swishing with mouthwash can help reduce plaque and remaining food particles that brushing and flossing missed. Knowing your risks: age, smoking, diet and genetics can all increase your risk for periodontal disease. If you are at increased risk, be sure to talk with your dental professional. It is important to get a Comprehensive Periodontal Evaluation regularly in order to determine plaque levels, bone structure, other risk factors for periodontal disease.

Crowd contends for hoop supremacy By Dan Ebenal The Tri-CiTy News

A crowd has formed atop the Fraser Valley North division as B.C. high school basketball winds through the final week of the regular season. The Gleneagle Talons, Terry Fox Ravens, Pitt Meadows Marauders and Port Moody Blues all sit at 3-1 while the Heritage Woods Kodiaks find themselves one game back at 3-2 on the cusp of the playoffs that begin next week. “The conference is very tight and tough right now. A loss could put you in a situation you don’t want to be in,” said Talons coach Tony Scott. “It makes it very interesting for this week, every game is that much more valuable.” The Talons, ranked No. 3 in the province, racked up a pair of convincing wins this week, stopping the Pinetree Timberwolves 76-58 Tuesday following a 81-31 rout over the Centennial Centaurs. “I don’t think our intensity is where it needs to be right now. We’ve got a few more games to try and figure it out and get ourselves where we’re supposed to be,” said Scott. The Talons have been coping with the loss of centre Grant Galbraith, who went down with an injury three weeks ago. “I find that right now too many people are trying to take it upon themselves to take up his slack. All of a sudden instead of playing your game individually

Darren Yeo with Heritage Woods rushes the ball down court past Centennial defender Josh Dalmann in the Kodiaks’ 85-61 win last Friday. we have people trying to do more than they really have to,” said Scott, who hopes to have Galbraith back in time for the playoffs. Gleneagle wraps up the regular season with games against Heritage Woods Thursday and Port Moody Friday. “These last games are crucial. If you’re able to get first or second you get that bye and if you’re able to get first you’re able to host,” said Scott. The playoffs open Tuesday with Pinetree

squaring off against Centennial. The winner of that game will take on the No. 3 seed Wednesday, with the fourth and fifth place teams meeting in We d n e s d ay ’ s o t h e r matchup. The Port Moody Blues threw their name in the mix with a 92-86 upset of the cross-town rival Kodiaks on Saturday. H e r i t a g e Wo o d s jumped out to an early lead but the Blues were able to close the gap before halftime and jump

in front in the third quarter. “We were up 15 in the fourth quarter, then they outscored us 14-4 or something like that down the stretch,” said Blues coach Alex Devlin. “We were hanging on at the end. It was a real upand-down game, that’s sort of the style they play. They’re small and they’re very active.” The Kodiaks struck for 11 three-pointers and went 19-for-20 at the foul line but the Blues were lifted by a 49-point effort

by Dylan Samuels. “Our guard Dylan Samuels had an unbelievable game,” said Devlin. “Dylan and our other guard Shaq Noel are quite talented. They’re basically scorers, they’re attack guys.” The win gives the Blues some confidence as they wind up their season against Terry Fox Thursday and Gleneagle Friday. “I think they feel they can compete and like you say, we don’t see anything that says

one team is dominant, at least in our league. I think Gleneagle has the best chance to be dominant but the big guy [Galbraith] has been injured,” said Devlin. “You look around the province and there doesn’t look to be any runaway for No. 1.” Terry Fox kept pace with a 70-60 win over Heritage Woods on Tuesday “On our home court, I just didn’t think we came out with the intensity Heritage did. They got out to an early lead and led for the entire first half,” said Ravens coach Steve Hanson. The Ravens managed to cut into a 10-point Kodiak lead to go into the half trailing 37-32 before rallying in the third quarter. “I thought we buckled down defensively and played smarter. Not a lot of Xs and Os, just a lot of heart and hard work,” said Hanson. “I think they’ve been averaging about 92 points a game, which is really high, and to hold a team like that to 23 in the second half is really a good sign.” The Ravens will tangle with Pitt Meadows Friday following Thursday’s contest with Port Moody. Hanson said the games will be huge but contends the real work begins when the playoffs start next week. “The bottom line is we all have to do it again and no matter who we play it’s going to be tough next week, but being in the top two would be nice.” sports@tricitynews.com

Giants mount comeback to topple Chiefs A four-goal lead was not enough for the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs. The Chiefs fell 8-5 to their Lower Mainland r i v a l Va n c o u v e r Northwest Giants in

front of a hometown crowd at Planet Ice in Coquitlam Saturday. Coquitlam’s Matthew Hermary scored twice and Brodie Crawford, Caleb Fantilo and Sam

Chung, all of Coquitlam, provided singles to stake the Chiefs to a 5-1 lead after the first period. But the Giants stormed back with seven unanswered goals to complete the

comeback in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League tilt. The two teams were back on the ice Sunday in a penalty-filled affair at the Burnaby Winter

Club. Port Coquitlam’s Jeff Wong converted a feed from Parker Colley for the Chiefs only goal in a 6-1 loss. The Chiefs return to the ice Feb. 15 when

they host the Valley West Hawks. The Chiefs currently sit in fourth place, six points up on the sixthplace Hawks. For more on the Chiefs, visit http:// northeastchiefs.com.

express put skills to the test Members of the Coquitlam Express will put pride and bragging rights on the line when they take part in the first Express Superskills Competition Monday. The Family Day event will begin at 11:30 a.m. in the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex, with admission by donation to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The event sponsored by the Express, Coquitlam Minor Hockey Association and OpenRoad Auto Group will feature Express players join those with the CMHA to show off their talents in competitions such as team relay, fastest skater and hardest shot. “It will be a headto-head competition and it will be a lot of fun I think for the guys,” said Express coach Barry Wolff, adding his players are looking forward to earning bragging rights. Wolff gives the edge to Express captain Ryan Rosenthal in the fastest skater competition. “But what’s going to happen is we’ll put them into two teams and then they are going to decide what event they’re going to go into so they won’t get to do every event,”he said. The Family Day event will also feature multiple bouncy castles as well as face painting and balloon twisting.

Rotarians Gather to Celebrate and Support Community Groups

On February 27, Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Port Coquitlam Centennial and other Rotary Clubs in the Tri-Cities will gather at the Pallas Athena Restaurant at 6pm to celebrate the Port Coquitlam Rotary Club’s 9th Anniversary. Club President Angela Andersen said “it was only 9 years ago that our club received its charter from Rotary International.” Since 2005 the Rotary Club of Port Coquitlam Centennial has consistently supported various local community groups and associations who in turn, provide support for those in need. Andersen said “it is indeed a privilege for us to give money to support Books for Babies B.C., Hope for Freedom Society, New View Society, Hawthorne Care Centre, SHARE Food Bank, and the soup kitchen at St. Catherines Church. As well, Our Rotary Club gives bursaries to students at all educational levels in Port Coquitlam.” Anderson also stated that “one of the most rewarding giving initiatives are when we give to programs that support at risk youth who are given the opportunity to attend camps with their peers. Our hope is that funding experiences such as this will change people’s lives for the better.” Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million volunteers. Rotary members are business, professional and community leaders who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Over 33,000 Rotary Clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas initiate service programs to address today’s challenges including the global eradication of polio, illiteracy, disease, hunger, lack of clean water and environmental concerns.
