First KaBoom! event an explosive evening in the City of the Arts

Program set to expand before cut By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A program that provides telephone reassurance, visits, grocery delivery and other supports to isolated seniors was poised to expand just weeks before it lost a major contract worth half of its funding, The TriCity News has learned. Community Volunteer Services for Seniors had arranged for grocery store clerks in the Tri-Cities to hand out information cards to attract more clients to the program. But when the PoCo-based agency learned a United Way grant would not be renewed after June, the program was pulled back for fear CVSS wouldn’t be able to serve its ongoing clients, let alone new ones. see HUMAN, page 16

Farnworth out of race Tri-Cities NDPers threw support behind Horgan By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth is out of the NDP leadership race. On Tuesday, the opposition’s finance critic cut short his second bid for his party’s top job and swung his support behind Juan de Fuca MLA John Horgan.

“The decision I made was based on a number of factors and it was, at the end of the day, the right decision for myself and for the party. And I know we’re going to be just fine with John Horgan as leader,” Farnworth told The TriCity News immediately after the announcement yesterday in Victoria. Farnworth dropped out of the contest after it took an unusual — and somewhat nasty — turn last week when some incumbent and former Tri-

City politicians turned their back on their local colleague and joined Horgan’s campaign. Last Friday, Horgan’s team issued a press release after a meeting in Coquitlam with local NDP leaders, touting endorsements from New Westminster-Coquitlam M P F i n D o n n e l l y, Coquitlam-Maillardville MLA Selina Robinson and former MLAs Joe Trasolini and Dawn Black. see BACKLASH, page 8

Bailey bridge battle brewing By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Twitter photo from New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly’s account shows NDP leadership contender John Horgan (centre) in Coquitlam last Friday with (left to right) Chris Wilson, Dawn Black, Rick Glumac, Donnelly, Bonita Zarrillo and Neal Nicholson. Donnelly posted the photo with the caption “Endorsed” and the attendees’ Twitter handles.

Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart has blasted New Westminster’s decision to replace the single-lane Bailey bridge that connects the two cities. Because the crossing at United Boulevard/ Braid Street is an inter-municipal road, Stewart told The Tri-City News that New West’s actions are illegal and Coquitlam should have been properly consulted before any plans were put in place. “New Westminster doesn’t have the right to do anything unilaterally,” Stewart said. see COQUITLAM, NW, page 5

Belcarra cottages face wrecking ball Metro says homes in park are too expensive to fix By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News

Several picturesque cottages on the edge of Belcarra Regional Park are slated for demolition to make way for an expanded picnic area and trail. But the residents of the tiny wood-heated cabins owned by Metro Vancouver Parks think the homes should be saved — and the Port Moody Heritage Commission agrees with them. Jo Ledingham and Michael Aelson, two longtime residents of the Belcarra south cabins, have contacted local heritage preservationists, including PoMo Station Museum curator Jim Millar and PoMo heritage commission member Coun. Rick Glumac, in the hopes of obtaining a heritage designation for the cabins that would stave off eviction. In addition to garnering support for a heritage designation, the residents have also submitted a proposal to open up a trail to a beach and hold public events for artists, boaters and nature lovers. But Metro Vancouver hasn’t been swayed and, in October, its board voted to push ahead with plans to demolish the early-20th century cottages for a future trail and picnic area expansion. There are plans, however, to stabilize and secure Bole House, a larger

home nearby that was built by and lived in by a Belcarra pioneer family. “It is public property and it is prime waterfront and the long-term plan is for future expansion to the picnic area,” Ron Wood, acting manager

for central area parks for Metro Vancouver, said of the other cottages. The residents, who pay $500 a month in rent, have been given until the end of June to leave, although a demolition date hasn’t been scheduled;

the picnic area is supposed to be complete by 2020 and a trail might be built earlier. The cottages sit amidst towering evergreens with an expansive view of Burrard Inlet and Deep Cove. A small trail leads

to a shell-strewn beach that, at low tide, would only be big enough for a large family barbecue. The cabins look well maintained and most have small nature-scaped gardens. Ledingham, who cooks on an oil-fired stove and has keys to get in and out of Belcarra Park at night, says the buildings are not insulated and while the life isn’t for everyone, she thinks the cabins should be maintained as an example of early cottage life in Port Moody. She and Aelson, a School District 43 employee, say they and the six other cabin dwellers are willing to continue to maintain and upgrade the cabins and have already put in considerable work and expense for upkeep. Aelson, who grew up in the cabin in which he

lives, says the demolition plans ignore the work and money the residents have already put into the cabins to keep them habitable and safe. “It’s not respectful of the time we put in and the improvements we made,” he said. But Metro Vancouver Parks believes the cabins don’t have heritage value and would be too expensive to upgrade. “The costs for fixing these buildings are substantial and would take years to pay back if dependent on rent alone,” a report prepared last year for the board stated. The residents, meanwhile, say renovation costs were inflated to justify demolition. “We have appealed at every level. We are doing this not just for the cottages but to protect the heart of the com-

munity,” Ledingham said. M e a n w h i l e , Po r t Moody Station Museum curator Jim Millar sides with the residents on the historical value of the cabins. He helped author the statement of significance that PoMo council was expected to consider at its meeting last night, after The Tri-City News’ print deadline. “It’s part of the whole development of Port Moody in the early days,” Millar said. “People would come from New Westminster to go by the sea shore and it was the summer vacation spot. “The way I look at it, the cottages have been there for 100 years and people have been living in them full-time since the ’60s. What harm are they doing? Just leave them alone.” dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

would come with a proposed six-lane Pattullo. He also said tolls would be necessary on a new Fraser River crossing to control traffic volumes coming through the Royal City. “It is estimated that 450,000 trips a day pass through [New Westminster], the majority of which have no origin or destination in the city,” he said at the time. “Seventy-five thousand trucks and cars use the bridge every day.” At that meeting, PoCo Coun. Mike Forrest pressed Puchmayr on the Bailey bridge, saying Tri-City motorists have suffered because of New Westminster’s reluctance to replace the crossing with a two-lane bridge. And Mayor Greg Moore told Puchmayr that municipalities need to consider regional needs when dealing with traffic issues. New Westminster has deliberately made it difficult for motorists to go through the city in an effort to make drivers avoid the city altogether, he said. “Those are some of the challenges we need to look at in a more regional perspective,” Moore said.

continued from front page

“It would be really unfortunate if they were able to circumvent the dispute-resolution mechanism.” The two cities are currently going to arbitration to decide the future of the crossing. Coquitlam has been pushing for a twolane bridge while New Westminster said its roads cannot handle the traffic volume that would come with widening the single-lane span. A wrinkle in the dispute process came several weeks ago, when engineers discovered cracks in the bridge, forcing its closure. Stewart said he was personally assured by New West Mayor Wayne Wright several weeks ago that the bridge would be fixed rather than replaced. But engineers in the Royal City said last week a replacement bridge similar to the current crossing is being assembled and will likely be in place by the end of April. New Westminster’s assertions that the current Bailey bridge cannot be repaired are false, according to Stewart. “The repair to the bridge has already been

MAYOR WAYNE WRIGHT

designed,” he said. “It seems clear that they want to have a one-lane bridge for the next 20 years. The public does not want that, including businesses on their side of the border.” But Wright told The Tri-City News on Monday that engineers in his city said the crossing is in worse shape than initially thought. The safest way to proceed, he said, is to set up a temporary single-lane bridge that was loaned to the city by the province. Wright also disagreed with Stewart’s assertions that New Westminster’s decision to move forward with a temporary bridge is illegal. “We are not trying to be obstructionist. That’s just not there,” he said. “At the end of the day, we need to figure out what’s

going to work.” The fact that the bridge is on loan from the provincial government proves that the city does not intend for the temporary bridge to become a permanent crossing, said Wright, adding that he would like to see the traffic problems at the foot of Braid Street due to the train crossing addressed before New Westminster is asked to handle more traffic coming through the area. The Bailey bridge dispute comes at a time when New Westminster politicians are seeking support for their position on a replacement for the Pattullo Bridge. Last month, New West Coun. Chuck Puchmayr told city councillors in Port Coquitlam that his city cannot handle the traffic increase that

Parkland land sale closer By Janis Warren

SPEAK UP

The Tri-CiTy News

Plans to subdivide a small strip of land at a Coquitlam school so it can be sold for housing will go to public hearing later this month. On Monday, city council unanimously granted first reading to change the official community plan (OCP) and rezone the 1.26 acres at the northeast end of Parkland elementary, at the corner of Como Lake Avenue and Poirier Street. The proposal to generate funds for the cashstrapped School District 43 comes two years after the board of education stopped its bid to sell a portion of the Porter Street elementary school property following a large public outcry.

Have a compliment or criticism about Coquitlam city hall? Council and senior staff will be on hand to hear comments at the city’s next town hall meeting on Saturday. The meeting will take place in the council chambers from 2 to 4 p.m. For residents wanting to participate but unable to attend, the event will be webcast live at www.coquitlam.ca/webcasts. Online questions can also be submitted after 1:45 p.m. via email (townhall@coquitlam.ca); Facebook (facebook.com/cityofcoquitlam); and Twitter (@ cityofcoquitlam).

Last year, when the city asked for preliminary comments about the Parkland bid, it received a 1,444-signature petition and several responses. As a result, city council sent SD43 back to the drawing board. But Graham Farstad of The Arlington Group Planning and Architecture Inc. told

council-in-committee on Monday that its open house at Parkland last November attracted only 12 participants and no written responses. And he said 87% of the names on the petition opposing the sale of any

SD43 land were from outside the Parkland catchment. Farstad said the surplus 122 m facing Como Lake Avenue are not used by Parkland and they are not maintained by the city (the two nearby sports fields are considered a shareduse site by the city and SD43). Asked if the district had considered other uses for its excess land other than subdividing it into eight residential lots, Farstad said single-family homes were the best option for the neighbourhood, and the proposal includes an 8 m-wide lane in the rear.

Backlash after Horgan endorsements continued from front page

“We have to win in the Interior and we have to win in the suburbs if we are going to form government,” Horgan stated in his news release Friday. “Selina, Joe, Dawn and Fin will be key to that effort and I’m so excited to have them join my team.” The Coquitlam meeting that was organized by Robinson — as well as the endorsements — created a wave of negativity, with many criticizing their decision not to support the hometown contender. A photo of last Friday’s meeting — showing Horgan with Coquitlam city councillors Chris Wilson, Bonita Zarrillo and Neal Nicholson, Port Moody Coun. Rick Glumac along with Black and Donnelly — was posted on Donnelly’s Twitter account, with the word “Endorsed.” B u t o n M o n d ay, Wilson told The Tri-City News the meeting was simply to talk about local issues and he was backing Farnworth (he clarified his position via Facebook and Twitter). Zarrillo said on Monday she hadn’t officially endorsed Horgan while

Others were more blunt with their comments. “A stunning betrayal. Says a lot about them,” another Twitter follower complained, while Coquitlam Teachers’ Association president Charley King also had harsh words online. Responded Robinson, “Quite surprised at amount of bullying witnessed on #twitter even by adults. #morethanwearingapinkshirt.”

Mark Hancock was formerly the president of CUPE 498 representing PoCo municipal workers, passed a motion to encourage Horgan to put his name forward; as a result, Horgan was unanimously endorsed, a CUPE BC spokesperson said. (Hancock did not return a call for comment.) The party has a deadline of May 1 for candidates to be nominated for the leadership, which includes payment of $25,000 to go towards staging of leadership debates around the province. Candidates have until June 26 to sign up new party members, with a province-wide vote scheduled to be completed Sept. 28. Both the BC NDP and BC Liberals finished 2013 in debt after last May’s election. The Liberals raised $14 million and ended the year $2.2 million in debt while the NDP raised $11.6 million and had a $3-million debt.

Juan de Fuca MLA John Horgan (right) thanks leadership rival Mike Farnworth (centre) and the rest of the BC NDP caucus for their support at a press conference Tuesday in Victoria. Glumac was undecided; Nicholson is a Horgan supporter. Still, their presence in the photo created a backlash on Twitter over the weekend, with followers questioning their loyalty and integrity. Among the critics were PoCo Mayor Greg Moore, who in 2005 ran for the BC Liberals against Farnworth. “#Disappointing” and “#TriCitiesBestTogether” were Moore’s hashtag sentiments.

“It was a tough decision,” Donnelly said. “They’re both excellent candidates.” Fa r n w o r t h c a m p a i g n wo r k e r a n d Port Coquitlam Coun. Brad West said yesterday Robinson and Donnelly’s actions will have an impact politically. “In the aftermath of the other Tri-City endorsements, it is still clear that people in this community are very supportive of Mike,” West said. “Mike has been the lead NDP voice in the Tri-Cities and has paved the way for many to get elected. He has earned respect for that.” Farnworth insisted the Tri-City endorsements

for Horgan had nothing to do with his decision to pull out. “I mean, they’re individuals I’ve worked with and supported. Obviously, I would have hoped they would have supported me but they didn’t and, hey, that’s politics.” Farnworth had faced an uphill battle in the leadership race, gaining only two NDP caucus members’ endorsements while Horgan had the majority of caucus on his side as well as support from CUPE BC, which represents 85,000 workers in more than 170 local unions. After Dix announced he would step down this fall, Horgan initially said he would not seek the leadership, making way for younger contenders. But those contenders, including new MLAs elected in 2013, ruled themselves out one after another. About a month before Horgan announced his candidacy, the executive board for CUPE BC, whose president

Robinson didn’t return requests for comment by The Tri-City News’ print deadline but MP Donnelly said he had met with both Farnworth and Horgan recently and found the latter to bring more “renewal” and “edge”to the party.

Health help

PICTURE THIS adrian raeside

I

s the myth of the family doctor dead? Those old enough to remember a time when family doctors made house calls are probably wondering what has happened to Canada’s vaunted medical system when they can’t find a physician willing to take them on. In the Tri-Cities, the physician shortage is acute. According to one estimate, each Tri-City doctor would need to take 25% more patients to be able to keep up with demand. Obviously, more doctors must be attracted to set up a practice in this area. But are there other solutions? Is it time, for example, that people started taking greater responsibility for their own health? Could they reduce the demands on the health care system by making healthier choices? Sure, but eventually they will need health care, and the system will need to be there for them. Could walk-in clinics be given more responsibility in collecting and maintaining information on patients, and sharing it with other health care professionals as necessary? Many more doctors seem to be attracted to the regular hours and lower operating costs a clinic can provide. They provide important patient access and relieve pressure on emergency wards, so why can’t they be better integrated into the health care system, and thus perform the same duties and continuing care as a family doctors? Are there other efficiencies that can be made so doctors can see more patients? Of course, and this is something a new program called A GP for Me is looking at here in the Tri-Cities. In White Rock/South Surrey for example, A GP for Me — a joint program of the provincial government and the Doctors of BC — 4,500 residents were paired with a family doctor and local residents who are looking for a doctor can be matched to one without any wait time. As well, the local Division of Family Practice opened an office that looks after patients without a regular family doctor who are released from hospital, helps them find a doctor and get access to services. The program also provided doctors with grants to hire registered nurses or licensed practical nurses, freeing up physicians’ resources so they can see more patients. Let’s hope local efforts have similar results in the TriCities, where an aging population is putting more demand on an increasingly stretched health care system.

New licences just the first part of a digital wave BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA o you have one of the new B.C. driver’s licences yet? By now, most drivers have the one with the unsmiling blackand-white mug shot — to conform to passport standards so it could be used for border identification — with the magnetic swipe strip on the back. About one million of us now have the newest version, with a credit-card style digital chip that proves your residency and eligibility for our famously“free”medical care. The motor vehicle office started issuing them about a year ago, as five-year licences expire. They replace the old CareCard, which has no expiry date. Over the years, there were more than nine million CareCards issued — twice the population of B.C. — as people held onto their access to our defenceless, overworked medical system from wherever they moved to.

D

Positive identification is only the start for this card. Each will be assigned a password that gives access to online medical records, so when patients show up at an ER, their eligibility is confirmed and any previous conditions or medications are accurately matched. (Note that medical information is not stored on the card, just an access code that goes with the password.) Patients will be able to call up their own files at home, book medical appointments and even renew prescriptions, which is where the efficiency comes in. In-person visits for routine prescription renewals are a cash cow for today’s doctors, generating guaranteed billings but often little or no health benefit. Most people will still think of it as a driver’s licence but it’s intended as an all-purpose government ID. If you don’t drive, you are spared the $75 licence renewal fee, and within a couple of years, the cards will start providing online access to a wide range of government services. Andrew Wilkinson, minister of technology, innovation and citizens’ services, says a public

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

consultation has shown most people are comfortable using a system they already trust for their banking. By the end of 2015, Wilkinson says, about two million people will have the new cards, roughly half of B.C.’s population. Application forms converted to online access will include student loans, birth, death and marriage certificates, voter registration and even criminal record checks. All this will be costly to set up but the savings from having customers do their own data entry are well known, as any banker (ATMs) or supermarket owner (self check-out) can tell you. “You can understand that if you’re in the vital statistics office and this can all be done from places like Telegraph Creek and Horsefly remotely, that actually saves them a lot of money,”Wilkinson said.“There will be conversion of existing services where you have to go into an office and wait around and fill out forms. Those will be converted to online services.” It also means a decline in the number of

government office jobs, and the potential for further outsourcing of services, as we have seen with Medical Services Plan administration and the back-office functions of BC Hydro. Some older readers won’t be thrilled to hear about this. They don’t want a smart phone, just a phone. But they will also see their great-grandchildren becoming adept with tablet computers before they can even speak. Seniors will get the hang of it pretty quickly, and their lives will become easier.

CORRECTION

• A correction to last week’s column on the Agricultural Land Commission. I erroneously wrote that regional panel members were appointed from outside the region. They are, in fact, local residents and the new legislation formalizes a cabinet appointment process for them.

Trim benefits, save school district jobs

An illustration of a planned Beedie Living tower near the Evergreen Line in Burquitlam.

Cynical over tower plan The Editor, Re. “Mixed reactions to Beedie’s tower plans” (The Tri-City News, April 2). An open letter to Coquitlam’s mayor and city councillors: After the public hearing and council meeting on March 31, I have become a cynical member of the public. I never used

to be as I always thought that the little guys could make a difference. It appears we don’t. The proposed Beedie Living building at 520 Como Lake Ave. does not adhere to the Transit Oriented Development Strategy that Coquitlam council accepted on July 30, 2012. Burquitlam

does not even have an up-to-date community plan. The development in Burquitlam is being led by the developers and not the people. How sad. It seems that with all the money and power that Beedie Living has, it can do anything it wants. Anne Stewart, Coquitlam

We’ll give you that beautiful We welcome

Dr. Janet Gordon

The Editor, Re. “Another $13M shortfall in SD43” (The Tri-City News, April 4). With a projected $13.4-million deficit (about 5% of the overall budget) next year and with staffing costing 91% of the $270-million budget, the school district will consider layoffs. But additional expenses next year will include close to a $3 million increase in salary and benefits. In situations like this, there are often no good options, only bad ones, with some less bad than others. Instead of layoffs, perhaps the board of education can consider slightly reducing benefits. No, this is not a good option. But if we can reduce salaries and benefits even by 2.5% (including a higher reduction for management and lower ones for non-management to come to the average), this could create a savings of more than $6 million. With the remaining balance of the deficit eliminated from reduction in non-staffing costs, the books could be balanced and everyone can keep their jobs. As I said, this is a bad option but there are worse ones. Ask the 142 people who were laid off last year. H.M. Leung, Coquitlam

No more overhead wires, Coquitlam council says Council weighs in on Hydro’s power line proposals By Janis Warren THe Tri-CiTy News

Coquitlam council has ruled out two possible routes for the next power transmission line from the city to Vancouver. On Monday, councillors unanimously rejected Alternatives 1 and 3 of the Metro North Transmission Study, saying it wants no more overhead wires through residential areas. A letter will be sent to Bill Bennett, B.C.’s minister of energy and mines, to convey Coquitlam’s opposition to the two routes. BC Hydro is considering three routes for one or two 230 kV lines, starting at either the Meridian or the Como Lake substations in Coquitlam and ending at the new Mount Pleasant substation in Vancouver. Its goal is to meet future demand for electricity in Metro Vancouver as well as to increase transmission capacity and strengthen the network’s load.

Alternative 1 proposes to run from the Como Lake substation via Lougheed Highway and Highway 1, adding overhead lines to existing towers through commercial and industrial sections in Coquitlam. Alternative 2 proposes to run from the Meridian substation (on Westwood Plateau) via a Burrard Inlet crossing, twinning existing lines through Coquitlam.

Alternative 3 proposes to run from the Como Lake substation via Burnaby, with lines underneath Como Lake Avenue. BC Hydro will pick a “lead alternative” this spring and hold open houses this fall to gauge feedback on that choice. The Crown corporation is expected to file its bid with the BC Utilities Commission next year to build the project by 2018. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Human contact key: Hansen continued from front page

Bruce Hansen, president of the Wilson Centre Advisory Association, which oversees the program, said the cards were an attempt to seek out seniors who are living alone and could benefit from contact from local volunteers. “You’ve got to have human contact,” Hansen said.“If you don’t do that, you won’t reach anybody.” The United Way has been under fire for not renewing expired contracts to 31 seniorsserving agencies, for a total of $1.65 million in funding. Among those is CVSS and Hansen believes a new program that provides non-medical services to seniors that is funded by the province but operated by the United Way may have usurped his group’s funding. Better at Home’s mandate is to provide nonmedical services, such as transportation and light housekeeping, to seniors who pay fees based on their income. Hansen said he believes CVSS should have received some of the funding because they provide different but still essential reassurance, referral and grocery services to isolated elderly people in

an aging TRi-CiTiES

Between 2006 and 2011, the Tri-Cities’ population increased by 11% but the number of residents 65 years and older increased by 24%; those 75 years and older increased by 20%; seniors 85 and older increased by 13% and people between the ages of 55 and 64 increased by 30%. (source: 2011 census)

the region. But instead of receiving any funding, his group was unable to secure another United Way contract for $49,500 a year and will have to find other funding sources to keep the 17-year-old program running after June, Hansen said. But United Way president and CEO Michael McKnight said the decision not to renew program funding for seniors’ agencies such as CVSS was due to a drop in donations of about $1 million last year, not because of Better at Home, which has now expanded to 68 B.C. communities. “Some of the grants were not renewed. That happens on a regular basis,” McKnight said, noting that 18 of those affected have other sources of funding from the United Way. “It’s not a statement on the quality of service and the need in the commu-

nity, it’s about the money to invest here,” McKnight said, adding, “It an impossible task to prioritize people in need.” Since, 2009, the United Way has seen a continual drop in donations, McNight said. But according to Hansen, the Better at Home program should be able to fill the gap and he’s upset the United Way still says it’s helping isolated seniors when it’s also ending some of its grants to organizations that serve them. Last February, CVSS had an opportunity to take the lead in the Better at Home roll out but bowed out, saying it wanted to be a partner instead. Share Family Community Services was given the $100,000 contract to handle the Better at Home program in a vote involving seniors and stakeholders, with SUCCESS offering to take the lead as well. Now, Hansen said,

START SMART FOR SMALL BIZ

S

o many books, so little time. Here are some worth your time: • My Lurid Past by Lauren Henderson is chick-lit for grown-ups. It’s aptly-named, fun and it has a bit of romance but it’s not sugary sweet. Juliet Cooper is the quintessential 30-something urban woman. She works in food PR, which is a lot flashier than it sounds as her biggest client is an up-and-coming celebrity chef. Juliet isn’t in a relationship with anyone and she’s OK with that until the day that she isn’t. The books starts with Juliet ready to embark on an brief affair with a young man. Unfortunately for Juliet, and the young man, that’s the day that she finds short-term relationships are no longer working for her. Juliet, confused by how she’s feeling, talks to her two best friends Mel and Gillian. They both have their own relationship issues so, between the three of them, there is a lot to discuss. This is an entertaining urban romance that doesn’t end in a neatly tied bow. • Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann ties a group of very different people together using an amazing incident: a man walking

across a wire between NewYork’s twin towers. The first group of stories detail the life of Corrigan, a radical young Irish priest who ministers to a group of prostitutes in a very bad part of the city. The story then goes on to a group of mothers who have lost their sons in the Vietnam war. From there, we learn about the life of a young artist and, after that, we read about a judge. These disparate stories end up beautifully woven together in an absolutely excellent book that will stay with you long after you’ve finished it. • Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss takes a critical look at the power the fast food giants have over consumers.The amount of research fast food companies have done on what makes salt, sugar and fat so irresistible is mind-boggling. This book discusses what these companies have done with this information. We all know that

Have you ever thought about working for yourself?You can learn the basics about starting a small business with a representative from Small Business BC for an informative session next week at Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox Library. On April 14 from 2 to 4 p.m., you will get an overview of the basic requirements, including name registry, municipal licensing requirements, tax registration and employment standards, and you’ll explore business concept evaluation and viability assessment in the marketplace as well as gaining an understanding of planning tools and strategy, with a focus on market research. Registration is appreciated by calling 604-9277999. Terry Fox Library is located at 2470 Mary Hill Rd. in PoCo. large amounts of fast food are bad for us but we eat ourselves sick anyway.This book doesn’t remove blame from the individual but it does highlight the amount of money thrown at these food products to get us to spend our limited food dollars on them. It is not the most uplifting book but it’s a valuable read, and great for anyone interested in food science or marketing. • Beat the Band by Don Calame is a hilarious young adult novel about three teenage boys: Coop, Matt and Sean. This story centres around Coop and his attempts to become one of the cool kids. Coop suffers a major setback as soon as the school year starts when he is paired with Helen for a semester-long health project. It wouldn’t be so bad if Helen was a nobody but,

instead, she is the least popular person in Coop’s grade. Coop has decided that he and his two best friends need to counteract his association with Helen by competing in the school’s Battle of the Bands contest. Everyone loves a rock star and Coop is pretty sure he has what it takes. Unfortunately for him, he doesn’t know how to play an instrument and neither do his friends. But, whatever, they have a couple of months to practise and what possibly could go wrong? This story is funny and heartwarming, and an occasionally painful reminder of what life in high school was like.

fundraiser

A fundraising campaign by three university students for a Coquitlam school wraps up tomorrow (Thursday). The three MBA students at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) want to help support the breakfast, lunch and after-school programs at Maillard middle school. Their goal is to raise $1,500 by April 10, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the school. Donations can be made at www.youcaring. com (search: Maillard Middle) or by contacting Teri-Ann Bell at tbell@ unbc.ca. Maillard middle runs a breakfast program for under-privileged children and the program co-ordinator realized the kids benefitting from it also needed lunch and afterschool snacks. Currently, the school does not have the funding to support the students deemed vulnerable and money is needed for food and new kitchen equipment. “In the end, we just want to help feed the kids and put smiles on their faces so they can focus on school and their education,” said Bell, who grew up in Coquitlam and attended Maillard middle school. newsroom@tricitynews.com

SONGS OF ELVIS

Grade 12 students Blake Sartin and Mariela Shuley play the lead roles of Chad and Natalie/Ed in the Terry Fox secondary spring production of All Shook Up, which opens Thursday. The 2004 American jukebox musical, based on William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, is the first show for the high school since 2011. JANIS WARREN/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

‘All Shook Up’ at Fox First musical theatre show in three years for students at Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox secondary school By Janis Warren

T

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

ri-City theatre-goers could be forgiven for doing a double-take when they passed Terry Fox secondary this month and last. Posted in front of the Port Coquitlam high school is a large yellow sign with brightly coloured wording, advertising the school’s production of All Shook Up that opens tomorrow (Thursday). The fact that Fox has a spring musical is significant as it has not staged a public performance since 2011, when Riley Langford played the title role in Jesus Christ Superstar and, the following month, won the best male acting award at the provincials; Fox also scooped three other accolades for the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Since then, all has been relatively quiet on the Fox theatre front. In 2012, its production of Legally Blond was can-

celled due to the teachers’ job action and, last year, tensions over lack of access to the adjoining Terry Fox Theatre meant no show for students. At the end of their academic year, the Port Coquitlam Theatre Society — the non-profit group charged with operating the theatre — announced it would not be renewing its contract with School District 43. And last November, SD43 hired veteran stage manager Rick Rinder to run the 336-seat facility, telling The Tri-City News he planned to achieve a scheduling balance between the community and the school. It was a huge relief for staff and students, and it allowed theatre department head Dan Tilsley to host an audition for Fox’s first show in three years. “This year, it’s been great,”he said.“There’s a feeling that everybody wants us to succeed.” The open casting call saw around 110 students try out for 40 roles in All Shook Up, a story about mistaken identity that’s based on William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night — with an Elvis twist. Tilsley, who picked the American jukebox musical because “it’s one of the more modern ones that you don’t see done that much,” chose one of his former acting students, Blake Sartin, for the part of Chad — the handsome, motorcycle-drivin’ loner who needs

tips about how to pick up women — while Mariela Shuley won the role of Natalie/Ed, a female mechanic who dresses as a man to get closer to Chad. The two Grade 12 students were selected for their stellar acting and vocal skills, Tilsley said, noting both plan to pursue careers in musical theatre after graduation, training at Capilano University. Rounding out the lead roles in All Shook Up are: Olivia Leon (Miss Sandra); Evan Hill (Jim Haller): Max Vanzuylekon (Dean Hyde); Kayla Kinna (Lorraine); Emma Rush (Mayor Matilda Hyde); and Kieran Davey (Dennis). Parents and Fox alumni have also been involved, including Shuley’s father, who built most of the sets, and Langford as choreographer. Tilsley, who has produced eight of Fox’s 10 musicals over the past decade, said the community support has been encouraging. “It’s the first of many shows,” he said.“We will build again.” • All Shook Up runs April 10 to 12 and April 16 to 18 at Terry Fox Theatre (1260 Riverwood Gate, Port Coquitlam). Tickets are $12/8 by calling the school at 604-941-5401.

An art and photography teacher at Port Coquitlam’s Riverside secondary will have a new exhibit up in Port Moody. The photographic art display, titled Abandoned Sublime, will be Kelly Selden’s largest ever, with 40 12-by-12 inch prints hung at the Gallery Bistro (2411 Clarke St.). The opening reception for the show is Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. Selden said she used a new archival process of printing on aluminum panels, which catches the light of her abstract imagery. As a result, the prints have up to four times more image stability than traditional photo papers. Selden was invited to exhibit her work by bistro owners Helen and Rainer Daniels after the couple saw her most recent show at the Fe r ry B u i l d i n g Gallery in West Vancouver. Abandoned Sublime, she wrote, was inspired by her travels to Sweden, Prague and around B.C. It narrows the lens on “subjects that are overlooked, discarded or thought of as m u n d a n e .” S h e hopes their transf o r m at i o n i n t o abstract compositions will make the viewer to look twice. Selden has previously shown her work at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre and Place des Arts as well as at Leigh Square Community Arts Village in PoCo.

PoCo’s Murdoch golden at Express heading to BCHL championship climbing championship By Gary McKenna

Tri-City athlete takes gold in youth division at provincial event Tri-City climber Kyle Murdoch won a gold medal at the Sport Climbing B.C. provincial championships in Sanich last weekend. The Port Coquitlam athlete finished first in the youth ‘A’ male division, and managed a third-place showing in

the open division, tied with Mission climber Jesse Taplin. Murdoch was not the only Tri-City climber to bring home some hardware after last weekend’s event. Ben Hughes of Port Moody took silver in the youth ‘A’ male division, edging out Connor Schellenberg of West Vancouver for the second spot on the podium. Another Coquitlam c l i m b e r, M a t t h e w Witwicki took silver in

the youth ‘C’ male division, while Hayden Jones took silver in the youth ‘B’ male category. Benjamin Ross, Joseph Witwicki and Burke Jurjaks also competed in the weekend event. On the female side, Coquitlam climber Julia Massullo took bronze in the youth ‘B’ category, while Port Moody climber Sydney Ross took third in the open followed by Port Coquitlam’s Nicola Williams.

Danielle Massullo took second in the youth ‘C’ category, while Coquitlam Tatum Oyama took third. Danielle Massullo also competed in the Sport Climbing B.C. provincial championship. The Sport Climbing Association of British Columbia was established in 2012 to be the Provincial Sport Organization for competition climbing in British Columbia.

The Tri-CiTy News

The Coquitlam Express are heading to the BCHL finals after a 4-3 overtime win over the Victoria Grizzlies Thursday night. The Coquitlam club needed the win to get out of the round-robin series and will now play the Vernon Vipers in the finals, set to begin next Friday. Thursday’s game started slow for the

visiting Coquitlam team in front of 1,051 people at the Q Centre. Victoria took a 2-1 lead in the opening period, with goals from Myles and Gerry Fitzgerald, while the Express’ Marc Biega managed to net a one midway through the first. Canon Pieper tied the game up in the second period before Victoria took the lead once against early in the third. That set the stage

for Coquitalm captain Ryan Rosenthal’s lategame heroics, scoring the tying goal to force overtime. It did not take long for Biega to pot the game winner in extra time, leading the club to a win and a trip to the finals. Despite the win, none of the Express players were named stars of the game. Those honours went to the Fitzgerald brothers — Leo, Myles and Gerry.
