Pipeline l i v efoes f r aim o m tocprotect o q u i tlocal l a mpark Pipe assembly could be done at Colony Farm park

13 th annual spring

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Members of the C o l o ny Fa r m Pa r k Association say they were shocked to learn that grassy fields on the west side of the regional park could be a construction site for the proposed Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. Jane Thomsing, a CFPA director, said her group is worried Kinder Morgan’s proposal to assemble the pipeline at Colony Farm Regional Park before placing it in a tunnel under the Fraser River could disturb wildlife and have long-term impacts. “It’s for the public to enjoy, it’s not for a big oil corporation and certainly it’s not for a construction site for big oil,” Thomsing said of the former farm that used to supply produce, milk and meat to Riverview Hospital.

History will hang on hall’s walls 120-year-old documents transferred to Coquitlam By Janis Warren THe Tri-CiTY News

Tw o c o p i e s o f Coquitlam’s letters of patent from 1894 will soon grace the walls of city hall. On Monday, city archivist Emily Lonie showed council-in-committee a framed copy of the provincial document, which states the boundaries of the newly incorporated District Municipality of Coquitlam. At that time, it included the areas of Fraser Mills — then the biggest sawmill in the British Commonwealth

— Port Coquitlam and a western portion of Maple Ridge. (PoCo and Fraser Mills left in 1913 to limit their tax liability to the rapidly growing district, with Fraser Mills returning in 1971.) In her first annual report to council, Lonie said the original founding papers had been poorly kept, with tears, tape marks, punch holes and a burn. As a result, they could not be safely handled or displayed. Last fall, Lonie took the two pieces of paper to Fraser/Spafford Ricci, an art and archival conservation firm in Surrey, where they were cleaned and restored on chemically stable paper. Two digital reproductions were also made and

framed, and they are expected to be hung at city hall this spring for public viewing while the original papers will remain in the archive. Since she took the job last summer, Lonie said the city has acquired a number of significant documents, including records from Emeri Paré, Coquitlam’s first police officer; May Day celebration photos from 1940 to ’62; and annuals from Coquitlam High School. The city also now has in its collection a 1932 petition from the Meridian Heights Farmers’ Institute (on Burke Mountain) asking for separation from the district because of poor infrastructure. Lonie said she ex-

pects the city to receive more documents this year, especially from the Coquitlam Heritage Society, School District 43 and former residents’ associations. Coun. Mae Reid said she’d like the city to have a booth at its Canada Day festivities at Town Centre Park to highlight the new finds as well as to raise donations for — and awareness of — the archives. Coun. Craig Hodge, a past president of the Coquitlam Heritage Society, said he’s pleased how much Lonie has accomplished to gather and preserve historical records. And he anticipates more to come, including from the pioneering Booth family, which had

one of Coquitlam’s oldest homes in Maillardville — a house the city bought last year. Hodge said he expects history to be a big theme as the city celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2016 (Coquitlam was officially founded in 1891). Meanwhile, city clerk Jay Gilbert told council the city is expected to launch a history “Lest We Forget” project this fall with Grade 12 students, to tell the story of First World War soldiers from Coquitlam. Their information was recently released through Library and Archives Canada as privacy concerns have ended with this year marking 100 years since the start of WWI. jwarren@tricitynews.com

JANIS WARREN/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Coquitlam city archivist Emily Lonie holds one of two copies of the 1894 letters of patent that were signed by the province’s secretary to incorporate the District Municipality of Coquitlam, which included at the time what are now Maple Ridge, Port Coquitlam and Fraser Mills. The three left Coquitlam, with the latter returning in 1971.

Beedie’s Burquitlam tower one step closer continued from front page

Much like Beedie’s proposal in 2011 to build a highrise at the corner of Austin Avenue in Blue Mountain in Austin Heights, the Burquitlam proposal was controversial, with the overflow crowd in council chambers split in its opinions on the project. Proponents, many of them wearing Tri-Cities Homelessness and Housing Task Group buttons, spoke about the merits of Beedie’s planned partnership with the YWCA Como Lake Gardens, an adjoining site where it intends to add seven townhomes

IN QUOTES

“Residents get the support to become economically self-sufficient… With seven more units available, the success stories will continue to multiply.” Maxine Wilson, YWCA volunteer

for single mothers in need and their children. Among those in favour were task group chair Sandy Burpee and former Coquitlam mayor Maxine Wilson, who now volunteers at Como Lake Gardens. “This is not

just affordable housing,” Wilson said of YWCA facility. “Residents get the support to become economically self-sufficient… With seven more housing units available, the success stories will continue to multiply.” Realtor Wayne Dick said the Beedie tower will offer larger units (including 13 three-

bedroom suites) that are needed for Coquitlam families. And with the Evergreen Line slated to open in 2016 and a station about 400 m away, Dick said surrounding homes will increase in value. None of the project’s supporters spoke about the financial incentives for the city if the tower

is approved: $2.74 million in density bonuses (Beedie plans to buy 44,000 sq. ft. of unused density from the Como Lake Gardens site and transfer it for its development, which is permitted under the RM6 zone); $1.5 million in development cost charges; and $271,000 as a community amenity contribution for a future rec centre in Burquitlam). Opponents of the project said they were not against Beedie or the YWCA but took aim at city planners for recommending such a tall building to be jammed into a small space. If built, the tower will

create a loss of privacy, light and views for residents in the two existing Farrow Street buildings, they said. It is contrary to the Transit-Oriented Development Plan for areas around Evergreen Line stations. Most concerning, they said, will be traffic flow for cars and pedestrians as it will be surrounded by a one-way lane and short street. Access from Como Lake Avenue will be limited as well, they said. Lisa Manhas, who represented residents of two Farrow Street towers, presented a 200-name petition against Beedie’s plan while the presidents of the Burquitlam

and Oakdale community associations chastised council for bringing forward an application before the 12-year-old Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan is updated. With Beedie’s tower as well as other future developments, Burquitlam will swell with 4,000 more residents in the next five years, said Oakdale’s Ben Craig. That, in turn, will put pressure on the infrastructure. Burquitlam president Don Violette added: “There’s not much planning going on in our planning department.” jwarren@tricitynews.com

City counts on new trash cans to help with bears The Tri-CiTy News

Coquitlam city staff are counting on new wildlife-resistant garbage cans to cut down on the number of bear and wildlife complaints. The city’s new solid waste collection system will begin in July, when BFI Canada Inc. begins automated curbside pickup for the city’s approximate 25,000 single-family homes. That’s when wildlife complaints typically surge and last year was a big year for animal sightings, problem bears and pests, according to the city’s Environmental Services division. A report to council tated that bear sightings, complaints and property damage occurred in all areas of Coquitlam. On a map, the bear-related sightings reported to the provincial Conservation Officer Service stretched from Miller and Mackin parks on the west side to Minnekhada Park in the

More secure garbage cans in Coquitlam starting in July are expected to reduce reports of bears in neighbourhoods. city’s northeast. To try to control the problem, urban wildlife staff patrolled neighbourhoods to educate householders about garbage and other bear attractants, handing out 132 notices of violation — but no fines. In addition, the Conservation Officer Service noticed a significant increase in bear activity across the northeast part of the region, with a total of 1,565 calls for Coquitlam, almost

doubling the number of the previous year, when 950 bear calls were received. As well, seven bears were destroyed and one cougar was killed last year because of safety issues, the report states. The city also handled 31 calls due to coyotes, 24 due to raccoons and 13 cougar/bobcat calls as well as dealing with a few skunk, waterfowl, deer, bat, rabbit, fish and other animal concerns. Pests were another

issue, with 60% of calls about rodents, 22.4% about wasps, 9.6% about other insects, 6.4% about birds and crows and 1.6% about squirrels, for a total of 125 pest calls. This year, the Conservation Officer Service and city urban wildlife officials are asking people to once again clean up their garbage and other attractants, including pet food and bird seed, as bears are awake from hibernation and looking for food.

Auto thefts down locally 88% drop overall over the last 10 years of IMPACT By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The number of vehicle thefts in the Tri-Cities continued its 10-year decline in 2013 and the nature of auto crime is changing, according to an RCMP officer. When the Integrated Municipal Provincial Au t o C r i m e Te a m (IMPACT) launched in 2003, Insp. Peter Jadis said, most stolen vehicles were taken on joy rides or used to commit other crimes. These days, with the increasing cost of metal, he said, sometimes all a thief is after is the value a car has at a scrap yard. “A car can be reduced to $200 to $300 worth of recycled metal and that’s something fairly new that we are seeing,”Jadis said. Since IMPACT was launched, Coquitlam has seen an 88% drop in stolen cars, with the latest numbers showing a decrease from 160 in 2012 to 140 in 2013, roughly 13%. Port Coquitlam has also seen a 13% drop, falling from 92 in 2013 to 80 in 2013, continuing an 84% overall decline since 2003. Port Moody was the only local city where the number of vehicle thefts increased last year. The number of stolen cars rose from 16 in 2012 to 19 in 2013, a 19% increase, although the city has seen an 82% drop over the last decade. The number of thefts from vehicles has also declined in the Tri-Cities. In Coquitlam, the number of cars broken into dropped from 570 in 2012 to 470 in 2013 while, in PoCo, the number fell from 290 to 170 over the same period. Port Moody saw the largest decline in thefts

PAYING TOO MUCH TAX?

Gas expected to hit $1.50 The onset of spring has pushed up both tulips and gasoline prices. And industry watchers expect Metro Vancouver pump prices to close in on their all-time record of about $1.50 per litre of regular gas in the weeks ahead. Average prices were around $1.44 per litre Tuesday, up more than 15% from the mid-December low of around $1.24. Jason Toews, founder of gasbuddy.com said Abbotsford gas prices, which were just under $1.30 Tuesday, could hit $1.40 a litre this spring or summer before lower prices return in the fall.

their vehicles stolen. Over the last decade, that daily number has dropped to about 17. Across the province, vehicle thefts have dropped 75% and thefts from vehicles has decreased 68% over the last decade. “ICBC invests in auto crime prevention, including the Bait Car program and IMPACT, because less crime benefits everyone and helps control claims costs and keep rates as low as possible,” said John Dickinson, ICBC’s director of road safety.“Even though overall auto crime is decreasing across B.C., you still need to be vigilant and make sure your vehicle isn’t a target for thieves.”

Electricity draw was down Sat. By Gary McKenna ThE Tri-CiTy NEwS

The Tri-Cities saw a noticeable dip in power consumption Saturday evening as many residents and businesses, plus civic facilities, shut off lights and electronic devices in recognition of Earth Hour. Po r t C o q u i t l a m managed to improve on last year’s power plunge, increasing its savings from 1.9% in 2013 to 2.3% in 2014. Coquitlam and Port Moody’s savings dropped slightly, from 1.9% last year to 1.8% this year, while Anmore and Belcarra’s numbers stayed the same as last year, recording a 1.6% savings in energy. Power consumption across the province was reduced by more than 65 megawatt hours of electricity, a total reduction of 1%, which is equivalent to turning off 1.4 million lights. Many Tri-City residents and businesses turned off the lights and any other non-essential power sources between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Earth Hour, organized by the World Wildlife Federation, is held every year to encourage individuals to demonstrate their support for climate change reduction efforts. BC Hydro customers are able to see exactly how much energy they saved during Earth Hour by going to bchydro.com/myhydro.

Open house Thurs. continued from front page The protest comes as Trans Mountain prepares for an open house tomorrow (Thursday) in Coquitlam, and spokesperson Lizette Parsons Bell said the company is open to hearing concerns from public. “We understand on a project of this scope and size there are going to be lots of questions, and rightly so,” she said. But Parsons Bell said the construction work would be temporary, to allow workers to weld together pieces of the pipe before placing it beneath the Fraser, and the area would be restored. “We are fully committed to restoring Colony Farm park back to the state it’s in and we would like to work with the community to find out what enhancements we can do,”Parsons Bell said. But members of the CFPA, Burke Mountain Naturalists and the TriCities Green Council are upset Trans Mountain didn’t do more to publicize the proposed scope of work, and they are worried that habitat for herons, barn owls, raptors and lazuli buntings could be disturbed. Elaine Golds, the CFPA chair, said she learned about the proposal at an invitation-only workshop last week and wants more details. She plans to present her concerns at a Metro

What’s happening

• An open house for Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion project is taking place tomorrow (Thursday), 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Executive Plaza Hotel, 405 North Rd., Coquitlam. If you can’t attend, you can find out more, including maps of the area, or provide input at http://talk. transmountain.com. Vancouver Parks meeting Thursday. “A decision should not be made before it goes to the Metro Vancouver board,” she said, noting that mitigation after the work is done might not be enough to repair the damage. “They just promise to restore everything and make it all just fine. It’s not fine as far as I’m concerned,” said Golds (The Tri-City News’ Green Scene columnist). Trans Mountain has yet to finalize the route for twinning its pipeline and has many regulatory hurdles to jump, including hearings with the National Energy Board. But if the preferred route running under the Fraser to Colony Farm from the east side of the Port Mann Bridge is chosen, there are precedents for allowing a regional park to be used for similar kinds of work. Ron Wood, acting manager for Metro Vancouver Parks’ Central Area, said parks have been used for this kind of work before but he hasn’t seen any details of Trans Mountain’s proposal, which would

need a full impact assessment, including environmental and public impacts, before it is approved. For Trans Mountain, the issue is trying to find a route that satisfies public and environmental concerns while avoiding private property. Three possible routes for twinning the pipeline through Coquitlam from Surrey have been identified but only one meets those conditions so far, and Parsons Bell said the proposed work at Colony Farm would be well away from the recreational area and wouldn’t block Colony Farm Road, although it would require a 1 km-long strip of land. But according to the Burke Mountain Naturalists, the fields proposed for the work (west of Colony Farm Road) that used to be for farm activities are an “extremely valuable type of habit for many species”year-round. As well, the group wants to know how compacting soils in the work area could be avoided.

‘Attracting investment’ continued from front page

Burquitlam is poised for renewal. “It’s really time to transform this neighbourhood and I’m particularly excited that a company of the calibre of Bosa Properties — a company that’s done work not only in Coquitlam but across the Lower Mainland for decades — will be right there in the transformation of what will become a truly exciting new neighbourhood.” The video ends with Bosa’s logo and a website link to the Uptown plans. The following video, posted in February, has Colin Bosa talking about his company’s two concrete towers (26 and 28 storeys) for the Burquitlam Plaza mall site, with units now for sale. Stewart said he did not receive payment to be part of the video and has not received campaign contributions from the company. Requests for comment from Bosa were not immediately returned. Stewart, who as a government consultant in the 1990s wrote consumer protection legislation for B.C. homeowners, said he has also been included in promotional material for other devel-

Maillardville plans

Extractions & IV Sedation

Coquitlam’s oldest neighbourhood has a new vision for its future. On Monday, after a public hearing, city council unanimously endorsed the Maillardville Neighbourhood Plan, a blueprint designed to bring more French-Canadian flair to the historically francophone community as well as add 6,000 more residents over the next 20 years. Jill Cook, executive director of the Coquitlam Heritage Society, said the plan has been a long time coming and many locals have taken part in shaping it. She expects the visioning document will spur economic development in the“unique and special”district of Coquitlam, where her organization is based. Plan highlights include: more multi-family housing; more green spaces (including a new Booth Farm park); heritage designation policies; and guidelines to have ground-floor shops adjacent to plazas. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Transit transfer I

PICTURE THIS adrian raeside

f at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. At least that appears to be the motto of the provincial government as it takes yet another stab at fixing its relationship with TransLink. This time, Victoria will attempt to empower the Metro mayors’ council that it previously emasculated in the last reform under then transportation minister Kevin Falcon. Excuse us if we aren’t convinced that this sop to get the mayors to back Christy Clark’s election promise for a referendum on transportation funding will do anything to change the dysfunctional relationship between regional mayors and the province. At first glance, the latest change looks like a good deal. If approved, the legislation would make the mayors’ council responsible for approving long-term strategies and investment plans, and figuring out how to pay for them, instead of merely rubber-stamping the work done by a professional board.The mayors would also take over the budget and staff of the former TransLink commissioner, with the power to approve fare increases and sell assets. But then there is also this: The mayors get to be in the hot seat for TransLink complaints and customer satisfaction — previously the job of the impartial commissioner. For this hand-over of responsibilities, the mayors would get the plum of saying when and what the referendum question will be with the caveat that they have to meet the province’s deadline of June, 2015. All of this ignores the fact of where the real power lies — in the hands of the provincial government, which pays lip service to regional decision-making, putting TransLink up as a straw man and then toppling it when it chooses to. For example, if the province wants SkyTrain technology, that’s what residents will get. If Victoria wants the Massey Tunnel replaced, that’s where the money will go. The province gets the photo ops on the big infrastructure while the mayors get to fiddle with the small stuff on the margin that no one wants to pay for. If this is the province’s best offer, we’d hate to see what the worst offer would be.

Agricultural Land Reserve divided, not conquered BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA ootenay Bill Bennett has done what I reported last November he was doing: seizing the horns of the sacred cow that is the Agricultural Land Reserve. Henceforth, there shall be two land reserves: Vancouver Island, the south coast and the Okanagan, which produce 85% of B.C.’s total farm revenue on 10% of protected land, retains its strict anti-development rules. In the much larger area that Bennett likes to call“beyond Hope,”non-farm uses will be considered to help maintain the many economically marginal farmers. This is the Interior, Kootenay and North, where development pressure is mostly an urban myth. In remote areas, ALR diktats with no relation to reality are routinely ignored. Political critics were quick to call this a BC Liberal hidden agenda to pave the ALR for its

K

developer pals. Certainly, neither the Liberals’ nor the NDP’s 2013 platforms talked about the ALR, although BC Liberal leadership candidates Kevin Falcon and Mike de Jong promised relief from its more senseless bureaucracy to Peace Country farmers in 2011. When the zone plan was revealed last week, media went to ALR pioneer Harold Steves, the hero of all Lower Mainlanders who try to tell northern farmers what to do. “My real fear is that they want to open the door for fracking and natural gas and oil,” Steves said. I’ve got bad news for the socialist sage of south Richmond: Oil and gas companies have operated on farmland since before the ALR was created in 1974. Conspiracy buffs should read the delegation agreement that took effect just weeks after last May’s election, giving the Oil and Gas Commission authority to administer wells, pipelines and waste pits on farmland. If the ALR interferes with the prescribed handling of drilling waste, it interferes with safety measures.

University of the Fraser Valley“food security” professor Lenore Newman went on radio station CKNW to refute what she called“uninformed arguments”and then offered one of her own. This two-zone change is connected to the exclusion of large tracts of Peace land for the Site C dam, she said. Actually, the government exempted that project last December using the longstanding “provincial interest”provision, so this phase of the alleged capitalist plot against farmland has no effect on Site C. Steves is also concerned about second homes being built beyond Hope, and later sold rather than being destroyed, as is the current disastrous rule. He warns that farmers might end up with“non-farm neighbours,”or as they like to call them up north,“neighbours.” Again, this is an urban problem projected onto rural B.C., where costly restrictions mainly serve to accelerate the depopulation of rural and remote areas. Delta South independent MLA Vicki Huntington is livid about the legislation, which has no effect on loss of farmland in her constit-

uency. The growing federally regulated port supersedes provincial laws and the Tsawwassen First Nation is growing a big shopping centre on its treaty land. Aboriginal entrepreneurs are also starting to force big-box development on southern Vancouver Island, home of the purest of the pure left. This is where farmers can’t even protect themselves against deer. The most damning charge is that the six regional ALR panels now in place are open to corruption under new rules. Panel members have always been cabinet appointments but currently they have to be from outside the region so they are less likely to hand out exemptions to their friends. That is certainly something to keep an eye on. So is the status of B.C. farms, where the average farmer age is 56 and rising, and half of farms have income less than $10,000 a year.

The Editor, Re. “Turn out lights, save energy” (The TriCity News, March 28). Showing a picture of a compact fluorescent light bulb as a symbol of taking good care of the environment is misguiding. CFLs should be a symbol of the deliberate pollution with the mercury this bulb contains and the sickness they can bring on. Imposition of CFL bulbs on us is not about wishing our Earth well, that’s for sure. Bozenna Siedlecka, Port Moody

It evolved through love and compassion of our visionary forefathers; they were able to see the problem and had the courage to deal with it. The costly effect in dollars and essential services to the public that the closure of Riverview continues to cause has been ignored by our provincial government for much too long. Reopening riverview for mental health to get back on track is the only viable hope for those lost souls now forced to fight for survival in the weather and cruelty of our city streets.

Take a trip from your chair A GOOD READ

tip of South America are laced with tall tales, fiction, fact and anecdotes, including an investigation into the final years of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.This 1977 book has been credited with revolutionizing travel writing. Paul Theroux’s The Great Railway Bazaar chronicles his four-month, 28,000-mile trip from London to Japan and back via some of the world’s most famous trains (the Orient Express, the Frontier Mail, the TransSiberian Express and others) in the early 1970s. Theroux says that railways are, to him,“irresistible bazaars, snaking along perfectly level no matter what the landscape, improving your mood and speed, and never upsetting your drink.”Theroux’s book is in part a wry commentary on the countries he passes through and his fellow passengers, interspersed with incredibly lyrical descriptions. As reviewers have noted, the title of A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush by Eric Newby is typical of his understated English humour. Newby’s month-long 1956 mountain climbing expedition in northeastern

Michael DeKoven

T

he term“armchair travel”has a somewhat elastic definition, often encompassing memoir, history, anthropology and fiction in addition to what is recognized as straight travel writing. Here are a few“classic” books that will inspire dreams of wandering (or perhaps, in some cases, nightmares): The ancient Greek writer Herodotus is known as the“Father of History” but he is also certainly as much the father of travel writing. In his fifth century, B.C. Histories, he recounts the stories of the great events in the societies of the Mediterranean and western Asia he hears in his travels. Herodotus’ aim was to“set down to preserve the memory of the past by putting on record the astonishing achievements of both the Greeks and the Barbarians”but his method includes also recording local geography, politics and culture. For something closer both in time and space, you may want to have a look at John Steinbeck’s Travels

with Charley: In Search of America. Steinbeck uses his account of a 1960 trip around the U.S.A. with his standard poodle in a camperized pickup truck as an opportunity to muse on the geography, character and culture of mid-20th century America (including the darker aspects, like rampant consumerism and racism). As he notes in the book,“We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.” In In Patagonia, Bruce Chatwin tracks the origins of an alleged piece of brontosaurus skin brought back to England by a globetrotting distant relative. Chatwin’s vignettes of zigzagging across the

Afghanistan was neither short nor a“walk.”While the opening chapters make clear his reasons for wishing to escape his job in the London fashion industry, the choice of an excursion to Nuristan as method is not explained. His companion on the proposed trip suggests it would facilitate official paperwork if they claim they are going to climb nearby Mir Samir and such an endeavour might also be eligible for a small grant from the Everest Foundation. With four days of mountaineering training, the neophytes set off in a station wagon loaded with equipment and into travel writing history. This book appears in almost every list of“the best” travel books. In Travels with Myself and Another, journalist, Martha Gellhorn describes her adventures in far-flung locales. This book depicts some of the“horror journeys”she undertook from the 1940s through the 1970s that she found much more interesting to write about than the pleasant ones. You can find these titles and many other classic — and modern — travel books at your local library.

Lindbjerg Academy student takes on the lead role in popular musical show By Janis Warren

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

ulia MacLean sits on a bench during a lunch hour outside her school, Moody middle. She’s happy to answer questions about Annie, in which she was chosen to play the lead role for the Royal City Musical Theatre’s 25th year. The show, which opens next week at the Massey Theatre, is “a good story about an orphan. She is optimistic. She knows what she wants,” the 12-year-old girl states. MacLean says she can relate to Annie because she, too, has a spunky outlook. “I don’t fit the Cinderella or Rapunzel roles anyway,” she says, with a shrug. The Grade 6 student first notice the call on the RCMT website and at Coquitlam’s Lindbjerg Academy of Performing Arts, where she has been a student for eight years. She auditioned at Massey for the lead part. “Julia really knocked me out with her singing,” said director Valerie Easton, a Port Coquitlam resident. “Her ability to take direction and her vulnerability really sold me. She is a very talented girl.” RCMT production manager Chelsea McPeake said Lindbjerg Academy is a “good breeding ground for Royal City,” with many of its students and teachers often winning character roles. McPeake said Annie was selected for the milestone year to honour the late Ed Harrington, a retired teacher from Terry Fox secondary in Port Coquitlam who cofounded the theatre company; he would have liked a big Broadway musical, accessible to all ages, to mark its 25th anniversary, she said. (Coincidentally, Annie will also be on the big screen this Christmas, with Jamie Foxx playing an updated version of

Daddy Warbucks). RCMT’s Annie also includes a 20-piece orchestra under the musical direction of James Bryson. MacLean’s eyes light up when she speaks about the show. “It’s a great cast. It’s amazing. Everyone’s so talented. It’s for everyone. Valerie is amazing.” And though MacLean is no stranger to the Massey stage — she was in last year’s ensemble for the RCMT production of Hello Dolly — she admits being cast in the top job has been a juggle. She’s had to miss some classes to get the rehearsals in. “There are lots of them now,” she said, “but I can handle it.... I try my best to keep on top of school.” Homework is done whenever she has a spare moment at Moody, at home and at Lindbjerg, she said. She’s also had lots of support, especially from her younger sister, Jamie, who is playing Molly in Annie. MacLean said she’s also getting help from her friends and teachers at Lindbjerg, where she regularly puts in 15 hours a week for lessons in dance, musical theatre and show choir. Still, she’s not shy of hard

work. Since last August, her star has risen steadily: she was in the finals of the PNE Showcase Showdown (which was won by Port Moody singer Tyson Venegas); in the fall, she took the Youth Talent Search title in Coquitlam, which gave her a guest role in the Maple Ridge run of Cinderella; and she was cast as Young Fiona in Shrek: The Musical at the Michael J. Fox Theatre in Burnaby — the first show for the Coquitlambased Align Entertainment (MacLean hopes to return for next year’s Addams Family). Although she has another six years of schooling, MacLean said she’s already “thinking about tomorrow” — as Annie puts it — that is, her post-grad work in musical theatre. She is inspired by Idina Menzel (of Frozen) and pop stars Pink and Lady Gaga. “They are so strong. They always have a powerful message,”she said. • Annie runs April 10 to 26 at the Massey Theatre (735 Eighth Ave., New Westminster) with opening night on April 12 at 8 p.m. Tickets at $29 to $45 are available by calling 604-521-5050 or visiting masseytheatre. com.

Piano duet for last Musical Mornings show at Evergreen

Songs of Sinatra, a tribute by

Rick Valiant

There will be four hands on one piano for the closing of this season’s Musical Mornings series in Coquitlam. N e x t we e k , h o s t Sarah Hagen will end her second round of classical music duets at the Evergreen Cultural Centre with fellow pianist Isabelle O’Connell, who has been hailed as “the young Irish piano phenom.” The duo met in 2003 during a residency program at the Banff Centre for the Arts and “we’ve stayed in touch ever since,”O’Connell said. Fo r t h e i r p e r f o rmances at the Port Theatre in Nanaimo on April 8 and at the Evergreen Cultural Centre the next day, the pair will play “a really lovely program,” O’Connell said, that includes Mozart’s Andante and Variations, Schubert’s Fantasie, Dolly Suite by Faure, a sonata by Poulenc and Gershwin’s I Got Rhythm Variations. “The repertoire for piano four-hands is really wonderful and I’m delighted to be performing some of these gems with Sarah,” O’Connell said. A f t e r t h e s h o w, O’Connell returns to her native Ireland for a performance in Dublin and, next month, she will be at the Gilmore Piano Festival in Michigan. Currently on the faculties of the Lucy Moses (Kaufman Center) and Diller-Quaile Schools of Music in New York, where she teaches piano, theory and chamber music, O’Connell is best known for her contemporary classical music workshops and adjudication.

Talons take rugby show on road to Bay Area

Tri-City golfers help SFU take 2nd

Talons go 2-1 in three-game tour The Gleneagle Talons boys’ rugby team got a taste of the California sun over spring break. The touring squad, which also consisted of players from Port Moody, Charles Best and Westview secondary in Maple Ridge, went 2-1-0 on the trip, playing exhibition matches with clubs from across the San Francisco Bay area. A win over the PITS Rugby Club of Piedmont, Calif., got the trip off to a strong start. The Talons jumped out to an early lead and according to Chris Turpin, a coach with the team, the club “never looked back.” Turpin added that the 31-5 win came in large part thanks to the play of senior lock Patrick Baloc, while Mitch Howey was able to shred PITS defence. Gleneagle was not able to follow up with a second win when they took on 2012 state champions Larmorinda during a match three-days later in Orinda, Calif. Despite strong play

from Kallam Harley, the Talons eventually fell 44-5. But the team was able to go how with a winning record when they took down the Pleasanton Cavaliers 29-19 under the lights in Livermore, Calif. After taking a 7-0 lead early in the match off a try by Howey, the Cavs stormed back with two converted tries of their own. It took Gleneagle’s Aarman Bonder to to tie things back up before the first half came to an end. In the second half, the defence of Harley, Baloc and Kaell Hutchinson forced the Pleasanton side into a number of errors, which Gleneagle was able to capitalize on. Eight man Hans Stander was a force in the forward pack all game long. sports@tricitynews.com

The Port Moody Gunners lost to Langley United in the under-21 Fraser Valley Soccer finals at the Inlet Park soccer field on Saturday. Langley managed to score in the second half of the game and Port Moody was unable to come up with the equalizer. The loss was the first one this season for Port Moody, which finished at the top of the standings with 17-0-4 record.

Coquitlam golfer Kevin Vigna rounded out SFU’s top four as the club took second place at the California Baptist Invitational golf tournament last week. Vigna finished one shot behind t e a m m at e B r e t Thompson with a 223, tied for 29th with scores of 78, 72 and 72. C r a i g Titterington, another Coquitlam golfer on the SFU team who was playing in his first collegiate tournament, shot 74, 77 and an 83 for a three round score of 234. The individual tournament title was won by We s t e r n N e w Mexico’s David Metz who, golfing as an independent, shot 207 over three rounds.

Manure money will pay for new Centaurs uniforms Centaurs raising cash for new look By Gary McKenna The Tri-CiTy NewS

The Centennial Centaurs football team is hoping to have a new look when they take the field next season, but first they’re going to

need some help from the community. The team is holding a manure sale at the Austin Avenue Rona (106-1015 Austin Ave.) on Saturday, April 5, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. in order to raise money to purchase new uniforms. “We are really short on cash,” said Cailean

Cameron, a teacher at Centennial. “We have a lot of kids who can’t afford to pay more to play, so we wanted to do this fundraiser.” The team will stick with its traditional blue and red team colour, but the jerseys will look a bit different from the old uniforms. Cameron said they are also better qual-

ity than the previous outfits, which will be given to the junior team. The idea of a manure sale came from a school in Nanaimo, which raised a significant amount of money selling the garden fertilizer. “We wanted something the public will need,” he said. “Not ev-

eryone wants chocolates. Gardeners are going to need this.” Cameron said the club hopes to raise between $4,000 and $5,000, which will offset a large portion of the uniform costs. Along with manure, the team will also be selling raffle tickets for $10 each. sports@tricitynews.com

Coquitlam Express defenceman JD Controneo chases down a bouncing puck in his own end while being pursued by Vernon Vipers defenceman Dylan Chanter during the Vipers’ 6-1 BCHL semi-final round-robin win Sunday in Vernon.

Coquitlam loses 6-1 to Vernon in round-robin BCHL seriesw By Roger Knox BLaCk Press

The Coquitlam Express will have to regroup and figure out a way to get their thirdround playoff series back on track after dropping the opener to Vernon on Sunday. For the Express, it was not only their first game of the round-robin, but their first in eight days since eliminating the Langley Rivermen. It took them six minutes to get their first shot on goal. “We try not to use excuses but I think the layoff did hurt us,” said Express assistant coach Rob Boyd, a former Vernon Minor Hockey rep coach. “It’s not the same practising everyday. The first period wasn’t even our same team. We played a little better in the second and I think it’ll come.” Boyd said his team has to grasp the importance of this round-robin format. “It’s easy to say every game is a game seven in the room, but I don’t know from the players’ standpoint if they grasp that urgency.” he said. “It’s not like a game six or game seven and

you’re facing elimination, your back’s against the wall and you have to win. This is a different format and there’s not that sense or urgency, and we’re playing a team we only saw twice during the year so there’s no real rivalry to fire you up.” Express goalie Gordie Defiel finished with 24 saves while Vernon’s Austin Smith made 29 stops as both teams had 30 shots on goal. Vernon went 1-3 on the powerplay, while the Express were 0-3 with the man advantage. The Vipers put themselves in a comfortable position with their victory Sunday, ignited in the first period by a powerplay marker at 11:46 from Liam Coughlin, who buried a rebound after Express goalie Gordy Defiel made a save on a point shot from Jared Wilson. The game-winner would come exactly seven minutes later, courtesy of Defiel of all-people, who inadvertently misplayed a Dylan Chanter dump-in into his own net. Chanter got credit for the goal. “It was very important for us to get off to a good start,” said Coughlin, the game’s first star. “We didn’t have a good start in Victoria, so it was definitely key to get on these guys early as they hadn’t played yet.” After a scoreless mid-
