MLA to run for NDP’s top spot Farnworth first in leadership race By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

After finishing a close second to Adrian Dix in 2011, Mike Farnworth says he is running for NDP leader to correct the party’s mistakes of 2013. Offering “a progressive alternative that can win an election,” the longtime Port Coquitlam MLA referred Sunday to the NDP choice in last spring’s provincial campaign to run upbeat advertising to promote a platform with few specifics. “Under my watch, the BC NDP will never fight an election with one hand tied behind its back,” Farnworth said in an opening statement released by his campaign. see HORGAN, page A7

Alleged driver had bad driving history Man, 90, was to have driving test By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

An elderly driver suspected in a hit-and-run collision that killed two

people in Coquitlam last November had been ordered by ICBC to take a driving test days before the crash. Eugene Muirhead, a 90-year-old Second World War veteran police believe was at the wheel at the time of the crash,

had a history of hit-andrun incidents, according to court documents. A search warrant application also noted that he was extremely hard of hearing and required two canes to walk. Juan and Marta Rosales were crossing Austin

Avenue at Gatensbury Street Nov. 27, 2013 when they were struck and killed shortly after 3:30 p.m. Witnesses said a silver Dodge Ram stopped about 50 m from the crash site before fleeing. A witness followed the truck to a nearby home,

where police took a man into custody and impounded his vehicle. The search warrant application, viewed by The Tri-City News, was required to allow police to look for DNA, fibres, fingerprints and damage on the truck, and outlined

what investigators knew shortly after the incident. Muirhead had visited the Port Moody Legion that afternoon, where he drank coffee with fellow Legion members, the document said. see REPORT, page A5

Big changes for Pinetree and Brunette Development and transit are behind Coquitlam plans By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News

Coquitlam’s oldest and newest main drags are getting makeovers. This week, city staff showed council plans for Brunette Avenue in Maillardville and Pinetree Way in City Centre to make way for projected growth. Under the Maillardville streetscape guidelines, which city council has yet to formally endorse, Brunette Avenue will be transformed into a processional route, from the clock tower at Lougheed Highway to Laval Square, the heart of the historically FrenchCanadian enclave. More than a century ago, Brunette Avenue was used for parades for special events and holidays by pioneering families. City staff propose to dress up Brunette with

Right, a procession along Brunette Avenue in Maillardville, circa 1913. black heritage-style street lamps, ceremonial street banners, hanging flower baskets, decorative street furnishings and festive lighting. Carl Johannsen, Coquitlam’s manager of community planning, said at Monday’s council-in-committee meeting that his staff will talk about the streetscape guidelines this or next month with stakeholders

and the public. Meanwhile, on the other side of town, plans for Pinetree Way are underway as Evergreen Line work continues and the area’s three stations are built. Tr a cy Kyle, Coquitlam’s manager of special projects, told council a proposed $14-million renovation of the road includes special lighting under the rapid-

transit guideways, public art and a new entrance/ exit for the Coquitlam Centre mall parking lot. City staff want to move the current northbound access to the mall to the lighted Anson Avenue intersection to shorten the traffic waits heading west and to make it safer for commuters and pedestrians. That upgrade alone would cost the city

$500,000, Kyle said. “It is a big-ticket item but with the coming of the Evergreen Line, the thoughts are, ‘Go ahead. Get it done,” because the public will not want to see this [street] torn up anymore,” Kyle said, noting discussions with the mall’s management, Morguard Investments, are ongoing. Kyle also said the city is looking at pub-

lic washrooms along Pinetree, a “pedestrian scramble” — criss-crossing diagonal crosswalks — at Northern Avenue and access upgrades to Burlington Drive, between city hall and the Spirit Square. As well, trees will be planted along Pinetree “to make sure there’s a nice green corridor,” she said, referring to recent concerns about trees

being cut down for the Evergreen Line construction. Kyle said the city plans to meet with stakeholders and gauge public feedback before the final designs are complete. Most of the Pinetree roadworks are expected to be done by opening day for the Evergreen Line, in the summer of 2016. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Now hear this: You can help children hear Thousands spent for children from needy families By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News

Many parents of young children are relieved to get a few minutes of silence when their talkative toddlers turn quiet. But for one local mom, her son’s silence was a worry. Jesse, whose last name was withheld to protect her son’s privacy, was concerned when her three-year-old wouldn’t speak or show any interest in what she was saying. Granted, the conditions weren’t ideal. The Burnaby mom was trying to communicate with her youngster via Skype because he was living in the Philippines with her mother while she was studying to be a licensed

practical nurse here. “It’s so frustrating, you’re not there,” said Mary, who thought her distant son was simply ignoring her. Speech therapy helped but it wasn’t until her little boy had a hearing test at a Fraser Health clinic upon returning home last fall that the true source of the problem was revealed. Her son, now four, was found to have mild hearing loss. Jesse was shocked at the news but it also made sense. “When we heard about that, I cried. I didn’t know what to expect. I couldn’t say anything. I didn’t know what to say. I didn’t know what to ask.” But thanks to a referral from public health nurses, the problem turned out to be relatively easy to fix. In January, Jesse’s son was given a custom hearing aid with funds raised by the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation.

Above, a poster for the Fraser Health campaign. The foundation’s Hearing for Kids campaign, which has so far raised $50,000 towards a $150,000 endowment to provide hearing aids for children of low-income families living in the Fraser Health region, was able to provide the little boy with a $2,100 hearing

aid. It replaced a loaner model he got in October that wasn’t tuned for his needs and would have had to have been returned. Jesse, who works fulland part-time jobs, and her husband, a Telus employee, are already having a tough time paying off student loans and

other expenses, and wouldn’t have been able to afford the device. Jesse’s son isn’t the only child to benefit. Seven other children living the Fraser Health region, including Tri-Cities, have received a hearing aid through the Hearing for Kids campaign, said

ERHF executive director Charlene GiovannettiKing, and more will get them in the future. Giovannetti-King credited Worksafe BC, whose employees contributed $40,000, and Port Moody’s Inspire Dental, which raised $9,000 last year, for getting the cam-

paign into gear. “They understand. They are building capacity with kids,”she said. But ERHF needs more donors to help make the program sustainable. For Jesse’s family, Hearing for Kids has been a blessing. Her son can hear and speak English well in addition to Tagalog and the family’s Ilonggo dialect. The kindergarten student is also a successful reader who loves to read aloud to his family. “I’m so happy that somebody is able to help us,”his mom said. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

HandyDart service denials are ‘house arrest,’ says Lewis By Jeff Nagel Black Press

HandyDart trip denials climbed again in 2013 and critics say the increasingly constrained access to TransLink’s custom transit service is unfair to the disabled and elderly. There were 42,418 service denials where requests couldn’t be accommodated due to constrained capacity — 3.5% of all trips. That was up from 37,690 in 2012 and represents an eight-fold increase in the last four years. “We have committed no crime and yet are sentenced to house arrest when demand for rides outstrips capacity to provide rides because politicians won’t make transit funding a priority,” said HandyDart Riders Alliance spokesperson Tim Louis, a former Vancouver councillor. A further 0.9% of HandyDart trips requested were refused, meaning they couldn’t be provided at the requested time and the customer wouldn’t accept an offer of an alternate time of up to an hour sooner or later. TransLink’s HandyDart budget has been frozen for five years and no new money is available. But Coast Mountain Bus Co. transit services director Martin Lay said the number of trips provided has been increased by shifting 10,000 service hours from HandyDart mini-buses to taxis. Lay said the strategy

is to provide as much service as efficiently as possible with the money available. Transportation planner Eric Doherty said the population of older seniors and people with disabilities has rapidly increased in Metro Vancouver. He also said it appears extra money for HandyDart will depend on Metro Vancouver mayors making it one of the expansion priorities to be voted on as part of a 2015 referendum on new TransLink taxes. Both demographics and politics support including an increase for the HandyDart budget in TransLink’s expansion plan, Doherty argued. “There’s obviously a crisis in the HandyDart system,” he said, adding, “Seniors vote. If the mayors actually want to have this referendum pass, they need to make sure that seniors can vote for things like HandyDart and washrooms at transit stations — things that specifically speak to their needs.”

He then drove to the Austin Fish House, a restaurant at which he regularly ate that is located near the crash site. When questioned by police, Muirhead admitted that he had been in the area but denied hitting anyone with his vehicle. “That’s a bunch of baloney,” he told police, according to the search warrant application. “I did not hit anyone. If I hit someone, I would have stopped.” Muirhead was detained by police for a short period of time the night of the crash for failing to remain at the scene of an accident. On Monday, Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said the investigation into the incident was ongoing and he

expected a report to be forwarded to Crown counsel in the near future. “Because nobody has been charged, we can’t really say too much about it,” Chung said. “We are still in the process of putting some different kinds of reports together.” The November incident was the second time a hit-and-run causing death occurred in the Tri-Cities. I n S e p t e m b e r, 15-year-old Annie Leung, a student at Riverside secondary in Port Coquitlam, was struck and killed by a driver in a pickup, who fled the scene. That incident occurred at Mary Hill and Pitt River roads and police are still searching for a suspect.

Drainage a concern related to Evergreen ‘We don’t want to lose any fish,’ says Moody’s mayor

rainy season continues. But the Burke Mountain Naturalists are worried the damage to redds — the hollows created by female salmon to lay their eggs — won’t be known until the water warms up and eggs start to hatch. “It’s a wonderful asset to have where you have salmon coming spawning in a creek right where people are living, especially in such a developed area,” said BMN’s Elaine Golds. “We don’t want to see those redds damaged.”

By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy NeWs

Runoff from Evergreen Line construction flowed into Suterbrook Creek in Port Moody during heavy rains in mid-February, prompting the contractor and the Ministry of Transportation to make drainage improvements and perform extra monitoring. Amanda Farrell, executive project director for the $1.4-billion Burnabyto-Coquitlam rapid transit line, said the creek has been running clear and there is no evidence fish and fish habitat were damaged in the incidents that occurred the weekend of Feb. 14. “But we need to monitor that and monitor the creek,” she said. Port Moody city officials and environmentalists were alerted to the problem and are doing their own monitoring but still want assurances Suterbrook Creek will be protected if heavy rains reoccur. “We don’t want to lose any fish and we want make sure they’re aware of it and they’re responding,” said Mayor Mike Clay.

DIANE STRANDBERG/TRI-CITY NEWS

Suterbrook Creek is running clear under the Capilano Road bridge in PoMo but environmentalists are concerned that salmon eggs buried in gravel may have been disturbed by sediment from Evergreen Line work. Still, he said he understands the challenges in trying to keep runoff from entering the tributary, which runs along the CP Rail lines into the creek.“I think the biggest trick we had was when it started raining so

hard and we know that when the soil has been disturbed it’s more apt to run off,” he said, noting that when problems were spotted, construction was shut down to enable crews to put up more containment fenc-

ing to stop the seepage. Farrell said extra drainage and filters were put in ditches that connect to the creek, and environmental monitors will be checking the creek three to four times a week as the winter

Temporary bridge is needed for NW-Coq. By Grant Granger Black Press

A temporary Bailey bridge will be brought in to replace the one closed following a maintenance check on the weekend. New Westminster Mayor Wayne Wright said the latest cracks in the one-lane bridge over the Brunette River that connects Braid Street to Coquitlam’s United Boulevard don’t appear to be repairable so the city is working with the provincial Ministry of Transportation to find a temporary bridge to put in its place. Wright said Tuesday morning that it appeared one had been found in the Fraser Valley. “We have sourced a second Bailey bridge to give us time to figure

out what has to be done,” Wright said. The new cracks in the structure were found during a maintenance inspection Sunday. A year ago, two splits in the bridge’s trusses were found and it took nearly two weeks to repair. Heavy truck traffic was also banned with the bridge’s maximum load weight being reduced from 48 to 15 tonnes. Wright said the engineers believed at that time the bridge had another 18 to 24 months of life left but heavy trucks ignoring the ban have shortened that time frame. He estimated it could take as long as four weeks for the temporary replacement, also a onelane structure, to be installed.

Th e d eve l o p m e n t intensifies the heated debate between New We s t m i n s t e r a n d Coquitlam about replacing the bridge. Coquitlam wants a permanent two-lane structure but New West insists that would put too much of a burden on the already heavily congested intersection of Braid and Brunette Avenue. Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart told The Tri-City News the issue highlights the urgency of replacing the structure. “We have used up a whole year since this problem first came to light last March,” he said. “New Westminster has stalled and it is really getting frustrating and it is going to get expensive for these communities.”

Festival turns 25

Sabrina Cercle snapped these photos from the 25th annual Festival du Bois, held over the weekend at Mackin Park in Coquitlam. A celebration of the city’s French-Canadian roots, Festival du Bois featured tasty goodies and plenty of entertainment. Clockwise from immediate right: Yves Lambert plays his accordion. Frenchie the Clown entertains, with balloons as the tools of his trade. The maple taffy team poses for a picture. And a young visitor goes for another kind of sweet treat.

Proposed BQ tower worries Trees and tight spaces are issues By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News

A Burquitlam homeowner gave Coquitlam city council an earful this week about an application the elected officials have yet to officially see. On Monday, Willem Schiere of the Farrow Street committee — made up of residents in two highrises near the Como Lake Avenue and Clarke Road intersection — said the proposal by

developer Beedie Living for a 26-storey residential tower would create problems in the area. Schiere said if the building were to go up, it would be 25 m away from his and would crowd the area. “We are very concerned it’s going to impact our privacy,” he said, while also warning of the potential loss of light and mature trees. As well, Schiere complained the strata of The Victoria would lose revenue from a nearby telecommunications site

as the Beedie building would block reception. Houtan Rafii, vicepresident of residential development for Beedie Living, said his company has met with The Victoria strata council and other area groups. “As with every project, we endeavour to work with neighbours and stakeholders to address concerns during the conceptual and design process,” he said in an email to The Tri-City News on Tuesday. Beedie has told The News it is planning to link its proposed 180-unit

Fire fouls traffic

PoMo oCP MeetING MARCH 19

Port Moody residents will get another opportunity to comment on the city’s draft official community plan at a town hall meeting to take place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 19 at the Inlet Theatre. More information about the plan is available at portmoody.ca under Services.

tower on Como Lake Avenue with the YWCA Como Lake Gardens by providing seven townhouses and amenity space for the single mothers and their kids at the facility. Its development would also include a parkade as well as a vehicle roundabout

close to the Burquitlam Evergreen station. At the council-in-committee meeting, Schiere and his neighbours were encouraged to speak at the public hearing when council formally considers the application.

Commuters driving along Clarke Road in Coquitlam had to take a detour Tuesday morning but it was to make way for firefighters, not Evergreen Line construction workers. North and southbound lanes were closed to enable firefighters from Coquitlam and Burnaby to battle a small house fire in the 500block of Clarke Road early Tuesday. Coquitlam Deputy Chief Jim Ogloff said his crews were called to the blaze at about 7 a.m. to support Burnaby firefighters in putting out the fire that started in the basement of an 1940s-era home that was being used as an office by the car dealer next door. No one was in the home at the time of the fire. “We will have an investigator on scene and we’ll determine the cause,” said Ogloff, who said the fire was put out at about 8 a.m. and the road opened shortly after. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Fix transit for our seniors

PICTURE THIS adrian raeside

T

he last 60 years of transportation design have been about getting young, mobile people to work. Now may be the time to find a way to make transportation safer and more usable for seniors. Before, no one cared about washrooms at SkyTrain stations, truly accessible bus stops and buses or other services that would make it easier for older people to give up the car and take transit. Before, nobody worried that our street lighting, signage, even our drivers’ licence system was inadequate for use by older people whose eyesight may be failing, whose reflexes are slow but who may still have a clean driving record. Before, no one cared that suburban living doesn’t support seniors, who may become isolated at home and dependent on government or volunteer services to get around. Now, though, as the grey tsunami begins to overwhelm public resources, it may be time to care. The evidence is already clear that transportation is inadequate for vulnerable, less mobile people. HandyDart is overwhelmed by people who need door-to-door service, so it’s time to take another look at how this service is used. Last year, for example, there were 42,418 service denials and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Is it time to take another look at how service to the most vulnerable is delivered?Yes. The evidence is also clear that our accepted driver’s licence system is inadequate for older drivers. Although most stay off the road in risky periods, studies find the crash rate for people 70 and older is similar to the crash rate of new drivers (those ages 16 to 24). Is it time to take another look at how our driver’s license system works?Yes. Is it time to take another look at how our transit system works for seniors? Absolutely, so we can keep our moms and dads safe, secure and healthy, and so it will be ready for us one day.

A crown jewel is on the table in the Cariboo BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA he New Prosperity mineral deposit near Williams Lake is described by the industry as one of the largest in the world, containing 5.3 billion pounds of copper and 13.3 million ounces of gold. The Harper government’s decision to reject open-pit mine development for a second time is seen by elected officials in the Cariboo region as a disaster. One of Quesnel’s sawmills is preparing to close for good and I’ve been told there is more to come as the post-pine beetle era unfolds. Here in the B.C. capital, the decision is mainly viewed as a huge mistake. Taseko Mines is going to court to show that the federal panel used the wrong design when reviewing the company’s expensively revised plan. The province has permitted two successful mines

T

that operate in the same area, one of which is run by Taseko. In Ottawa, this is a Supreme Court of Canada test case over who owns the land and the mineral wealth underneath. In traditional Canadian law, the province owns it. This was highlighted in the recent discussion between B.C. Premier Christy Clark and Alberta’s Alison Redford over royalties from oil. Six aboriginal communities make up the Tsilhqot’in Nation, which has a long and bitter history of resistance against the Crown. The Tsilhqot’in almost won a declaration of title to 40,000 hectares known as the Nemiah Valley — forests, wild horses, minerals and all — in a 339-day trial that ended in 2007. Their case suffered a setback at the B.C. Court of Appeal and is now before the highest court. Aboriginal rights have been established but this would be the first clear title. Tsilhqot’in tribal chair Joe Alphonse was pleasantly surprised to see Taseko turned down again. He said the Tsilhqot’in National

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

Government is releasing its own mining policies soon. “We welcome opportunities to look at projects that are environmentally sound and we need economic opportunities,”Alphonse told the Williams Lake Tribune. Somehow, efforts to move mine waste rock from Teztan Biny (Fish Lake) to a sealed storage site 2 km away are not enough to protect groundwater, although they are sufficient at the nearby Gibraltar and Mount Polley mines. And Alphonse makes it clear this mysterious environmental problem will be solved once he and his fellow chiefs have control of the resource. A Supreme Court of Canada ruling on aboriginal title is required to settle this. If some limited form of title is at last defined for the treaty-less majority of B.C., or at least Tsilhqot’in territory, the fate of the mine may become clear. Conventional wisdom on this is that the mining company didn’t try hard enough to establish a working relationship with the Tsilhqot’in. For his part,Taseko CEO Russell Hallbauer says

the chiefs refused to meet with him, which isn’t surprising from a group that doesn’t recognize the B.C. forests ministry either. Here’s a sample of the volume of evidence that may determine the future of B.C.: Archeological studies presented at trial describe“18 roasting and/or pit depressions”at Teztan Biny. It’s not clear if these were for seasonal food preparation or for pit houses, which would indicate a more permanent settlement at the lake. Nor is it clear whether these“cultural depressions”have been identified as being of Tsilhqot’in origin. Oral histories are also uncertain. Tsilhqot’in witnesses testified that Teztan Biny has been used in the 20th century as a hunting and fishing camp. The mine was rejected due to ill-defined cultural as well as environmental concerns. B.C. residents could finally see some answers this year.

It has huge walls of curved glass windows, probably a grand atrium and, since the school is to have a concentration on the arts, undoubtedly music rooms, a dance studio, art studios and a technologically sophisticated theatre.

Coq. district music fest strikes 62nd year By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy NeWs

An American piano virtuoso with his own reality TV show is in the TriCities this week to adjudicate intermediate- and senior-level pianists in the 62nd annual Coquitlam District Music Festival (CDMF). Steven Spooner, an assistant piano professor at the University of Kansas whose TV series A Life of Music is on XOTV, started on Monday critiquing dozens of young pianists hoping to win a spot in the provincials, which happen June 3 to 7 in Penticton. Last year’s Performing Arts BC competition in Chilliwack was a good one for the CDMF with representative Fraser Jang-Milligan taking runnerup in junior piano, ChristyYip earning an honourable mention in intermediate piano and Kelly Kim being named as runner-up in national piano.

with a rise in the vocal and speech arts categories; CDMF is one of two Lower Mainland music festivals that accepts speech arts competitors. Peters encourages the public to take time out to listen to the performers “and see the level of talent that is in this area, no matter what their discipline.” Over the past six decades, many youth got their start at CDMF: Among them, Canada’s first Rockette Betty McHardy; actor Michael J. Fox (Back to the Future); crooner Michael Buble; pianist Jon Kumura Parker; and Kim Cattrall (Sex and the City). • The Coquitlam District Music Festival runs until April 11 at the Hyde Creek community church (2145 Nova Scotia Ave., Port Coquitlam). Admission is free. For more information and times, call 604-468-2622 or visit cdmf.ca.

This year, CDMF has recruited Alan Young — a former Lethbridge Symphony manager and music conservatory co-ordinator with the University of Lethbridge — to adjudicate the junior piano section. Still, piano isn’t CDMF’s only forte as several dozen young competitors are also lined up for speech arts, classical voice and musical theatre (at last year’s provincials, CDMF rep Hannah Gee was the runner-up in intermediate classical voice, Sam Ellington was the runner-up in junior musical theatre and Tiana Jung took honourable mention in senior musical theatre). And while Kevin Power is returning as classical voice and musical theatre adjudicator, Toronto character performer Kathleen Black has been brought in for the festival to hear from the speech arts participants. CDMF president Harold Peters said registration is slightly up this year,

Port Coquitlam’s Michelle Khoo, 14, a Grade 9 student at Magee secondary in Vancouver, and Cierra Munro, 16, of Port Moody, are part of Mustard Seed — a collaboration between Goh Ballet and the Guangdong Modern Dance Company of China. Khoo has been with Goh since the age of four while Munro, a Grade 11 student at Coquitlam’s Dr. Charles Best secondary in Coquitlam, has been with the company for eight years. Working with the Chinese group“is great because how they move is really amazing,”Munro said.“They are a lot more experienced and it’s great to work beside them.” Their performance is March 7 and 8 at 8 p.m. at the Vancouver Playhouse.

French horn player Oto Carrillo and pianist Sarah Hagen will perform in the penultimate concert for the Musical Mornings series at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam.

Wake up with piano, horn By Janis Warren

A

The Tri-CiTy NeWs

series of classical music morning recitals — now in its second season at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre — has gained so much popularity the organizer is now making plans for her third installment this fall. Pianist Sarah Hagen told The Tri-City News she’s now finalizing the dates and artists for her Musical Mornings concerts and, as a bonus, will likely include an evening show as well. Started in 2012, Musical Mornings has seen a mix of Canadian and international artists playing a range of

instruments. This year, audience-goers will also hear from a horn player (Oto Carrillo of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, who will grace the stage with Hagen next week) and a second pianist (Isabelle O’Connell from Ireland, on April 9). “The audience is continually growing,” Hagen said. “Enthusiasm for the series has been collecting over the last two seasons and I can see a real spirit of community grow amongst attendees.” David Mann, Evergreen’s performing arts manager, said Musical Mornings is drawing a large demographic, from children to seniors. And he expects the Carrillo recital to be a full house with about 120 students

signed up with the school bookings. “The real measure of success, however, is the quality of the performances,” Mann said. “It is a tribute to Sarah Hagen’s ability to attract world-class solo artists who want to perform with her as well as to her considerable talents as a concert pianist and accompanist.” He added, “Sarah creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere that is not as formal or intimidating as the traditional classical music concert. She mingles with the crowd during coffee and after the concert, and her onstage stories and descriptions of the repertoire are always fun and educational.” As for the next week’s performance

with Carrillo, Hagen said the pair has a program made up of works by French, German, British and American composers and will include Beethoven’s Horn Sonata. The two met four years ago at the SOAP Festival (Symphony Orchestra Academy of the Pacific, now known as PRISMA) in Powell River, where they played a Mozart quintet. After the Coquitlam show, the duo will have concerts in Courtenay, Surrey and Chilliwack as part of Hagen’s recital tour of the province. • Tickets are $20 by calling 604-9276555 or online at evergreenculturalcentre.ca. The Carrillo/Hagen show is on Wednesday, March 12 at 10 a.m.

Landscape painter looks back 30 years By Janis Warren The Tri-CiTy News

As a diplomat’s wife in the 1960s, Pat Service first picked up the paintbrush while stationed in Scotland. The Port Alberni native studied at the Glasgow School of Art and continued while in Venezuela and eastern Canada. But it wasn’t until her children were a little bit older and they had returned to the west coast that Service started painting full time. She worked in a studio on Water Street — when Gastown wasn’t the trendy place to be —

Deadline nearing for contest Young stars of tomorrow have until March 15 to apply for theYouth Talent Search 2014. The winner of last year’s inaugural competition in Coquitlam was Julia MacLean, a Port Moody resident who has since been a guest performer in Cinderella and last month portrayed Young Fiona in Shrek: The Musical at the Michael J. Fox Theatre in Burnaby. This spring, she is in the lead role for the Royal City Musical Theatre’s 25th production of Annie. The talent search is open to singers, dancers, musicians and artists aged seven to 19. To apply, upload a video toYouTube and email the link with your name, phone number, age and hometown to YouthTalentSearchBC@ gmail.com. Successful contestants will be asked to perform in the semi-finals at the Port Moody Inlet Theatre on April 27,Vancouver on May 24 or Richmond on May 25. Those who are shortlisted will move on to the final round of judging, held in September. The grand prize is a photography session, signing with a film/tv agent, a role in a local production and a trophy. For more information, go to www.facebook. com/youthtalentsearch.

and, within a few years, she had gathered enough material to display her craft. Since 1979, Service has been a prominent exhibitor in solo and group shows around the world; her work is also part of dozens of private collections. To m o r row ( Th u r s d ay ) , the Vancouver resident will look back at her career at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre by opening her first major retrospective. Service can hardly believe 30 years have gone by. And she said trying to pick pieces to show that would be representative of her achievements has

been daunting, to say the least. In total, Service will have 16 canvasses on the walls — the biggest one measuring 78 by 110 inches — in watercolour, acrylic and oil paints. “I don’t like to work in the same medium all the time,” she said. “I like to keep it fresh and exciting.” Still, her subject is consistent: landscapes of the Sunshine Coast, Vancouver and Vancouver Island and other parts of the province. Her connection to lakes is especially strong. Though three decades have passed, Service can see how her use of colour and style has

evolved — and not. “You come back to the place where you grew up,” she said. “You can never really escape yourself.” She added,“Painting is like tai chi: You do more of it because you can never get it perfect.” • Pat Service: Painting This Place, 3 Decades runs from March 6 to April 17 in the art gallery at Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way). The opening reception on Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. includes a talk from the artist. The gallery is open Monday to Saturday from noon to 5 p.m.

MARCH 9th Dominique Fricot (Folk, Rock, Soul) Fricot owns the stage with his rich baritone and his emotive fusion of rock, soul, folk and jazz. Winner of Shore 104’s “Best of BC” contest, Dominique’s singles run the gamut from breezy, Jack Johnson-esque pop to haunting piano ballads that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Coldplay album, and perfectly encapsulate the highs and lows of falling in and losing love.

If this is your first time attending, welcome and I trust you’ll enjoy yourself. If this is your fourteenth time attending, you already know how great this festival is. On behalf of Council, welcome to Port Moody and the 14th Annual Port Moody Canadian Film Festival. Mayor Mike Clay City of Port Moody

Welcome back. A few refinements in our presentation this year: a preview of all our films on Opening Night Thursday, more guest film makers than ever, heaps of hospitality along the way (check your Programs carefully) and, back again, our People’s Pick Award as part of our Wrap Party on Sunday. Lots of comedy this year - some of it decidedly but delightfully low brow, there’s drama with heart, there are two outstanding documentaries… 6 features in all and 6 shorts representing some of the best Canadian films of the year. See more than one, tell your friends, and enjoy the Festival. Brad Williams Artistic Director, Port Moody Canadian Film Festival

Talons take second at FV tourney

Junior Rapids take the B.C. title By Gary McKenna The TRi-CiTy News

Coquitlam club will now get ready for B.C. championship By Gary McKenna The TRi-CiTy News

It will take a few days for the Gleneagle Talons to get over the disappointment of Saturday night’s overtime loss to Tamanawis in the Fraser Valley championship finals. But head coach Tony Scott said he and most of his players are looking on the bright side. They have locked up a high seed in next week’s B.C. AAAA high school basketball championships and proven to themselves they can keep up with some of the league’s best teams. “[Getting to the finals] is still a major accomplishment for us,” he said on Monday. “I like that aspect of it. It’s just when you have the opportunity to grab it and have it as yours, that kind of hurts.” Gleneagle fell behind early in the first quarter, but was able to rally against the top-ranked Surrey club before the end of the first half. The Talons managed to keep some distance between themselves and Tamanawis on the scoreboard but things started to unravel late in the third. “Some of it was physicality,” he said. “We were worn down. I could just see them getting tired.” A series of three-point shots from Tamanawis’ perimeter players brought the score to within three with seven seconds left in the fourth quarter.

GARy AhujA/BLACK PRESS

Coquitlam’s Gleneagle Talons lost a heart-breaking overtime game 86-79 to Surrey’s Tamanawis secondary at the Langley Events Centre in the Fraser Valley Championship final on Saturday night. That was when the Surrey club tied the game with a three-point shot, forcing overtime. “You start questioning yourself,” Scott said. “You start standing around watching.” The Talons were unable to capture the lead in extra time and ended up losing the game 86-79. Ta m a n a w i s w a s ranked No. 1 in B.C. going into Saturday’s matchup and Scott said he was proud of the way his team competed over the course of the Fraser Valley tournament. On Friday, the Talons had a strong game against Walnut Grove, dropping the Langley club 64-40, a score that even surprised Scott. “I wouldn’t have anticipated that happening,” he said. see RaVenS, page 20

PoMo wrestlers bring home medals Port Moody secondary’s wrestling team took home some hardware after last weekend’s B.C. High School Provincial Wrestling Championships in Prince George. Ciara McCrae

snagged a gold medal in the 51 kg category after defeating St. Thomas More’s Ciara Corbett in the finals, while teammate Jessica Nowicki grabbed gold in the 69 kg category. Beth Potts, another Port Moody stu-

in the 57 kg category. In total, Port Moody’s team took 44 points in the competition — taking second place overall — behind St. Thomas More, which had 73 points. Centennial took seventh with 18 points.

The future is bright for the Riverside Rapids basketball program after the junior girls’ squad won the B.C. championships last weekend. Riverside, which is coached by Kelli Langford, senior girls’ coach Paul Langford’s daughter, finished first in the 2014 standings and boasted some of the top players in the league. M a r t y C h a m b e r s wa s given most valuable player honours, while Alex Antigani and Oziona Mwabuko were both named first-team all-stars. Stephanie West was named second-team all-star. South Kamloops came in second place in B.C., while R.A. McMath took third place in the provincial standings. M a ny o f t h e j u n i o r p l ay e r s will join the elder Langford’s club next season. The senior Rapids recently secured a berth in the B.C. Provincial Championships, but injuries slowed the team down in the final two games of the Fraser Valley tourn a m e n t , wh i c h they lost. The senior provincials are expected to get underway this week at the Langley Events Centre. sports@tricitynews.com

BCSS lawsuit dropped By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy News

A Port Moody man who sued BC School Sports after the organization ruled his son ineligible to play basketball at Terry Fox secondary this year has withdrawn his lawsuit. Andras Szigeti said it was not necessary to move forward with the court challenge

after Thursday night’s loss to the Heritage Woods Kodiaks, which essentially ended the Te r ry Fo x R ave n ’ s AAAA season. “We are going to take a timeout,” he said. “Whatever we were doing, it doesn’t make sense to go forward with it.” He said he was unlucky and still believes h i s s o n , G ra d e 1 2 student Abel Szigeti,

should have been allowed to play. Abel asked to be transferred from Heritage Woods to Terry Fox last summer and played the exhibition season with the Ravens. However, BC School Sports ruled him ineligible for the regular season, pointing to bylaws that state a player must sit out one year before join-

Gleneagles’ game plan going into Friday night’s matchup involved shutting down point guard Jaden Cohee, one of the best players in the province. The Talons’ defenders were successful at keeping Cohee to the outside and limiting his point

production, said Scott. Meanwhile, two other Tri-City teams were unsuccessful in their efforts to make it to the B.C. championships. Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox Ravens were defeated by Port Moody’s Heritage Woods Kodiaks 75-68 on Thursday night. The win for Heritage Woods meant they had a chance to grab a wild-

nternational Women’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world. It is a day when women are recognized for their achievements without regard to divisions, whether national, ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic or political. It is an occasion for looking back on past struggles and accomplishments, and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped potential and opportunities that await future generations of women. In 1975, during International Women’s Year, the United Nations began celebrating International Women’s Day on 8 March. Two years later, in December 1977, the General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming a United Nations Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace to be observed on any day of the year by Member States, in accordance with their historical and national traditions. In adopting its resolution, the General Assembly recognized the role of women in peace efforts and development and urged an end to discrimination and an increase of support for women’s full and equal participation. International Women’s Day first emerged from the activities of labour movements at the turn of the twentieth century in North America and across Europe.

Christine Baron BA, LLB In 2014 I celebrate ten years of living in Coquitlam and ten years of working as an estate-planning lawyer. I would like to thank all of my clients and colleagues for allowing me to assist them.

I believe that asking a lawyer for help should be a positive, valuable experience for any client. When I meet with clients, I listen to their concerns, answer their questions, then make a plan that’s right for them. I welcome families and my office is stroller and wheelchair accessible.

Her Pre-school Licensing Representative asked her to start up a PreSchool of her own due to the lack of quality facilities we had in our area. Louise took her encouragement and has never looked back. She started as just a Pre-school and has grown with the community and her families, now offering Kinder-Care, Group-Care and Before and After School-Care. Her facility is located in the North East side of Irvine School Grounds in PoCo, in a bright and cheerful portable. This is also a great advantage for kids that will be advancing to Irvine making the transition as easy as possible. She employs 9 qualified teachers who all truly care about their students and their families, accommodating parents’ varying work schedules and busy lives. The excellent student to staff ratio offers more one on one attention and the curriculum has been described as “between a Montessori School and a regular Pre-school”, more structured than most, but less rigid than a Montessori course, thus offering a less stressful and fun learning process.
