Cops aim to save $ and help patients Mental healthrelated calls can cost police time By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Moody police officers are seeing an increase in the number of calls involving people with mental health concerns. And now the department is looking at ways to increase the effectiveness of their response while also reducing the strain on police resources. PMPD has been tracking the numbers and is finding officers spending several hours each week answering calls related to an emotional disturbance. Chief Const. Chris Rattenbury said police have noticed a spike in

COP TALK PoMo Police have surplus & some ideas what to do with it: pg. A7 the number of calls dealing with emotionally disturbed people or individuals with mental health issues in the last four to five years, which is putting a strain on police resources. Police typically apprehend the individual under the Mental Health Act, Rattenbury said, and when they take them to Royal Columbian Hospital, officers can wait up to three hours for a doctor to see the patient. see HEALTH, page A6

A decade ago, Port Coquitlam resident and drummer Jim Kempton couldn’t hold his drumsticks due to cancer. Now, he will lead his team on the 240 km Ride to Conquer Cancer for the fifth time this summer. For more on his story and Team Beat It’s fundraiser on April 26, please see article on page A12.

Port Moody’s Pacific Coast Terminals is expected to begin storing and handling potash in late 2016 after signing an agreement Monday with a Saskatchewan

mining company. And the deal is expected to create both short- and long-term jobs. K+S Potash Canada will move the commodity by rail from its newly opened Legacy mine in Saskatchewan to the port, where it will be loaded onto ships destined for international clients. see NEW, page A4

A hidden gem no more: tourism boss New tourism mgr. wants people to spend time here By Janis Warren THe Tri-CiTy NeWs

More than a decade after Coquitlam spent thousands of dollars to commission a study on how to tackle tourism, the city has brought on a manager to stoke interest locally. And it has recruited a person familiar in Vancouver circles for attracting out-of-town guests as well as getting residents excited about what they have in their own backyards. Eric Kalnins brings a wealth of travel and tourism experience to the municipality, said David Munro, Coquitlam’s economic development manager, citing Kalnins’ work with Tourism Vancouver and BC Ferries. During his seven years with Tourism Vancouver, Kalnins was part of the team that was dreaming of making Vancouver the host city of the 2010 winter Olympics. He helped to draw major sporting events — including the world weightlifting and figure skating competitions — and he worked closely with tour operators for cruise ship lines. Kalnins also was involved in the successful Dine Out Vancouver Festival to boost the hospitality industry. At BC Ferries, Kalnins was travel and tourism manager, encouraging journalists to write about the province by travelling on the ferry network. Now, Kalnins is tak-

Sporting events are among the happenings that bring people to Coquitlam, says Eric Kalnins, the city’s new tourism manager. The key, he says, is letting visitors know what more there is to do in both the city and neighbouring communities.

IN QUOTES

“I want to put the seed in people’s minds of how much is available in Coquitlam.” Eric Kalnins, Coquitlam tourism manager ing note of Coquitlam’s assets, creating an inventory, boosting the city’s web presence and speaking with business people about what can be tapped — all building on a 140-page tourism strategy the city commissioned in 2002 as well as work by Barb Stegemann, a former tourism co-ordinator wh o c o n s u l t e d f o r Coquitlam. Kalnins has three years to get his tourism program off the ground — and a tight budget

of$100,000 to promote it. Kalnins has read past city reports and publications, describing Coquitlam as “a hidden gem.” He shakes his head. “I don’t want it to be that,” he said. “I want it to be known.” The 11-year Coquitlam resident points to the city’s sports fields and centres, trails, parks, shops and restaurants as well as the Riverview Hospital arboretum as being big draws — not just for day-trippers but,

also, for local residents, many of whom are new to the city. According to BC Statistics, Coquitlam is currently the fastest growing municipality in Metro Vancouver (up 3.2% from 2012 to ’13), with a population now at 138,000. And over the next 30 years, the head count is projected to rise by more than 87,000, potentially reaching a population of 225,000 by 2046. Kalnins’ aim is for Coquitlam residents and businesses to take ownership of their city, to experience and explore it with stay-cations and to encourage visitors to look around, especially when sports tournaments and festivals are happening. He plans to build day itineraries for families, couples and single folk

looking for something to do. “I want to put the seed in people’s minds of how much is available in Coquitlam,”he said. Coquitlam has many upcoming provincial, national and international events where the city can shine, he said, pointing to the 2014 Canadian Lacrosse Association President’s Cup, the Men’s U19 Field Lacrosse World Championships in 2016 and the ’16 BC Seniors Games. Still, while Coquitlam has its attractions, so do its Tri-City neighbours. “I would be a fool to ignore Port Moody and Port Coquitlam,” Kalnins said, “but what I want is for people to spend most of their day in Coquitlam.”

A city of Coquitlam corporation that leases fibre optic cables is finally making money — seven years after it started. This week, city council — QNet’s sole shareholder — approved the corporation’s 2013 annual report and financial statements, showing a profit of more than $75,000 last year. According to the report by Rick Adams, Coquitlam’s IT manager and QNet’s general manager, the city-owned utility now has eight telecom service providers leasing the high-speed fibre. And last year saw two new data centre hosting companies set up shop in Coquitlam. Adams said QNet will take a new approach this year, focusing more on sales to lease the broadband cables itself rather than through telecommunications companies. In 2008, the city loaned QNet nearly $5 million for its start-up; the corporation intends to pay back the money, plus $2 million in interest charges, by 2028. (Adams told The Tri-City News in 2009 he was confident QNet would not only be able to pay back the city loan in five years, the company would be making $5 million annually by its 10th year). QNet is governed by a board of directors that includes city manager Peter Steblin as chair.

Pacific Coast Terminals on the Port Moody waterfront is known for shipping sulphur. But as that market softens, PCT is expanding to accommodate shipping of potash that originates at a mine in Saskatchewan.

New warehouse to be built continued from front page

The deal between the port and the mining company took four years to work out and Ken Catton, vice-president and general manager of PCT, said Monday’s signing was an important step for the facility. The demand for sulphur has been waning in recent years, he said, and moving into the potash business will diversify the kind of products PCT can handle. “Sulphur volumes are continuing to be at a low level,” he said. “They are not likely to increase to any great extent. This is volume that we can use to replace that sulphur volume.” Despite recent turmoil in the potash markets, Catton said K+S is committed to completing its mine and bringing the product to market. In order to handle the commodity, PCT is pre-

KEN CATTON paring to build a new handling and storage facility at the terminal. Unlike sulphur, potash can dissolve in water.

That means a new enclosed warehouse will have to be built on the site to protect the product from the elements. A new rail car unloading area and a covered conveyor system are also part of the construction program. The same dust-control measures used for sulphur can be applied to potash, Catton said, noting that the chute that is used to load the ship will be the same for both products. He added that construction will begin as

soon as the required permits have been issued by the port. The work is expected to create 500 construction jobs plus another 75 full-time equivalent positions at PCT. Potash is not new to PCT. The company handled the product in the late 1960s and early ’70s, before sulphur became its main product. “We haven’t really handled potash since then,” Catton said. “We are going back to our roots.” gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Coquitlam poised to host a Canadian first Advanced facility to maximize recycling Benefits of NextUse material recovery facility

Proposed NextUse Material Recovery and Recycling Facility in Coquitlam. COQUITLAM, BC - The City of Coquitlam has been chosen as the site of an advanced $30 million facility that will take recycling to the next level and reduce the need for a second waste incinerator, and avoidable impacts on taxes and air quality. While the proposed facility has the support of municipal elected officials, it awaits the go ahead from Metro Vancouver. If approved, NextUse could handle more than a quarter of Metro Vancouver’s garbage and drastically reduce the amount of waste that has to be buried in landfills or burned in incinerators. While a Canadian first, similar facilities have been operating successfully for years in California and other U.S. jurisdictions where air quality is a priority.

Technical equipment used to process the waste, extract and sort recyclables is advanced, efficient and green. (San Jose, CA)

“It’s hard to believe but nearly half of the garbage now going to landfill or incineration is made up of valuable materials like food scraps, recyclable plastic, paper and metals,” said Russ Black, Vice-President of Corporate Development for NextUse Recycling, the company proposing to build and operate the plant. “This plant will allow us to ‘break open the garbage bag’ and recover and recycle more than half of what’s left in the garbage, boosting the regional recycling rate even higher. Because the plant is completely enclosed, nearby residents can breathe easy knowing there’ll be no negative impacts on the community.”

More jobs, less cost Black added that the project will create about 80 clean jobs and, unlike proposed incinerators, will be built with private capital and operated at no increased cost to taxpayers. “Material recovered at NextUse could be reused in the region for manufacturing new products from recycled material— spin-off benefits that represent new opportunities for an expanding green economy in BC.”

Residents have spoken During public consultations for its regional plan, Metro Vancouver heard loud and clear from residents that their top priorities are reducing waste and maximizing material recovery and recycling. “This project will do both those things and is in line with our region’s commitment to diverting as much of our recyclables as possible out of the waste stream,” said Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart. “This proposal brings advanced waste-separation technologies that will help the Tri-Cities and Metro Vancouver maintain leadership in waste diversion and recycling, while also providing economic benefits to our region.” Officials say the facility, which would establish Coquitlam and BC as leaders in the advanced material recovery sector, could be up and running within two years of receiving licence approval from Metro Vancouver. The Metro Vancouver licencing process will include public notification of the application which will be published in the local paper in the coming weeks. In the meantime, NextUse is inviting residents to contact the company directly with any questions or concerns. The company can be reached at community@nextuse.ca.

The NextUse facility would be fully enclosed and employ innovative technologies. (Bristol, England)

• After source separation and sorting efforts, NextUse represents one last screening of the “waste” to maximize the recovery of recyclables instead of burning or burying them • Reduces dependency on landfills • Privately-funded, with no additional cost to taxpayers (versus an incinerator which would cost $500 million for construction alone, and require a significant increase in taxes for residents and businesses) • Creates more local jobs and potential for spin-off economies in BC-based remanufacturing of recycled material • Zero emissions, clean and green • Innovative and flexible, able to support ongoing progress towards zero waste. NextUse Recycling Ltd. is an affiliate of Belkorp Environmental Services Inc., a private BC company based in Vancouver with a long history in recycling, composting, safe disposal and environmental service businesses that span across the broad sector of waste management.

The NextUse facility will allow us to ‘break open the garbage bag’ and recover and recycle more than half of what is left in garbage after people have sorted recyclables themselves, boosting the regional recycling rate even higher.

Health authorities are working with Tri-Cities police agencies In the coming weeks, PMPD is expected to sign a memorandum of understanding outlining roles and responsibilities of police and mental health support services (Chahine said a similar MOU has been signed with Coquitlam RCMP). “I have met with [PMPD] a couple of times looking at how we can collaborate more closely and work together,” Chahine said, noting that anecdotal reports have indicated that hospital wait times for doctors to see policeescorted patients have already been reduced. Port Moody isn’t the only city seeing an increase in the number of people with mental

“The whole call takes four and a half to five hours, that is a lot,” said Rattenbury, who said the issue, outlined in the minutes of a recent police board meeting, is something police all over the Lower Mainland have been noticing But there could be changes on the horizon that could reduce the time spent on handling these calls while still providing support to vulnerable people. Rattenbury said PMPD is working with Fraser Health on solutions, something Walid Chahine of the Tri-Cities Mental Health office has confirmed.

health concerns needing help and support. Chahine said, typically, between 1% and 5% of the population is dealing with a mental health or substance-abuse issue and, as the Tri-Cities population increases, police and mental health workers are seeing more people with these issues. In his office alone, the number of referrals has doubled in the last seven years and the Tri-Cities mental health office is now dealing with 200 referrals a month. “I don’t think that’s unique,” Chahine said. “I go to offices across Fraser Health and I see the same story.” He said his office already has appointed

someone to liaise with the RCMP and a similar arrangement is in the works for Port Moody. “I’m glad that law enforcement are keen on developing an MOU. We always welcome the partnership and the collaboration,”Chahine said. For Rattenbury, PMPD would like to see a way to reduce the time spent on dealing with these calls while still offering support to vulnerable people. “We’re there to help and if there are some issues, we want to help out. If we all work together, there can be a better solution to the problem,” Rattenbury said.

PoMo police want to spend some of last year’s surplus By Diane Strandberg The Tri-CiTy News

Port Moody Police Department ended last year with a surplus and is now hoping to use some of that money for operational efficiencies and investigations, including the ongoing inquiry into a 2012 murder in Glenayre. PMPD’s $637,000 surplus on a roughly $9-million budget comes as Port Moody finalizes its budget for this year and although surpluses typically go into city coffers, the police are hoping to keep $283,000 for department initiatives and other costs. Chief Const. Chris Rattenbury confirmed the surplus this week, acknowledging that it’s unusual for the department

CHIEF CHRIS RATTENBURY to have one but came about because of vacancies that took time to fill and other issues. He said some of the funds the department was requesting would help with internal issues and boost efficiency overall. Topping the list, according to a police board report, is funding for an investigation into the murder of

Joseph Markel, 32, who was shot in September 2012 outside his parents’ Glenayre home. Police said at the time the victim, a longtime PoMo resident, was well known to them and his death was a targeted hit. Rattenbury said PMPD assumed responsibility for the file from the Vancouver Police Department last year — PMPD previously contracted with VPD for murder investigations — and is seeking an undisclosed amount of money for informant payouts, cell phone/ computer examination and GPS tracking and surveillance, both by its own investigators and outsourced through Vancouver or the RCMP. Other issues for which the police need money

include IT upgrades and an intelligence data management application called IBM i2 iBase, organizational development, including the revision of job description and administrative policies, support for the police board and the stocking up of ammunitions for training. Rattenbury explained the IT and operational needs are part of ongoing efforts to increase the effectiveness of the department while the ammunition is needed because prices are constantly rising and money spent now, when it’s cheaper, would save money later. “We are always asking ourselves is there a more financially efficient way of doing things,”he said.

City aims to cast wider net By Janis Warren

GREEN STREETS

The Tri-CiTy News

Coquitlam city hall will try to cast a wider net for input as it plans for two neighbourhoods. Carl Johannsen, Coquitlam’s community planning manager, vowed the municipality will extend its reach as it develops the Northwest Burke Visioning Study and it updates the Burquitlam-Lougheed Neighbourhood Plan (BLNP). Both documents will guide growth over the next 20 years. In the past, city hall had only consulted with the specific community — plus abutting property owners — when shaping an area. But it ran into criticism on the Austin Heights and Maillardville neighbourhood plans when residents living close to those boundaries didn’t get communication from the city about what was intended to happen nearby.

Residents of Burke Mountain’s Upper Hyde Creek neighbourhood are being surveyed about the mountain’s only green street. The municipality is asking homeowners whether they use the grassy strip of land — which serves as the common front yard for about a dozen houses on Watkins Avenue — how often they use it and if parking is sufficient. Their ideas are being sought for the next green streets that are being considered for the Lower Hyde Creek and Partington Creek neighbourhoods. For the NW Burke and Burquitlam processes — both of which will stage will their first open houses this fall — Johannsen said the mailouts will also go to home and business owners whose land falls within the shoulder areas. City planners will define the shoulder by studying maps and determining what surrounding properties will be affected. “We want to broaden the net so that property owners — within a reasonable amount away —

are aware of what’s going on,”he said. Besides the letters, the city will also convey its message via its website, social media, newspaper ads and street signage. “We are always looking for ways to improve

PAYING TOO MUCH TAX?

and to make sure everyone is aware of the plans,” he said, “and we want to make sure we’re clear about what’s being proposed. Our job is to illustrate as best we can and to paint a picture about what the future is.” Under the NW Burke vision, up to 8,000 more people are expected to call that area home while the BLNP anticipates 14,000 more residents. Meanwhile, Burquitlam and Lougheed area residents and business owners wanting to be part of the BLNP Public Advisory Group have until April 28 to apply. Visit coquitlam.ca/BLNP to download a form.

Taking steps to boost health I

PICTURE THIS adrian raeside

t’s no surprise that as the Tri-Cities’ population grows, more demands will be put on the health care system locally. In fact, some of the problems are already readily apparent. Eagle Ridge Hospital appears to be bursting at the seams, ambulance services have been cut back and firefighters are taking more of the load, and there aren’t enough family doctors to go around. Port Moody Police Department has been dealing with increasing numbers of people with mental health concerns and health care practitioners worried about eye health and oral cancers are offering up solutions on their own here in the TriCities by offering free screening. So what is to be done? Fraser Health is already dealing with the daunting task of looking at ways to make our health dollars go further so people get the care they need when they need it. The Northwest Division of Family Practice, for example, is looking at models of primary care delivery so people who don’t have a GP can get one, especially elderly people . The province is also looking at the big picture; it has replaced the head of Fraser Health, and is monitoring the health care authority’s operations on an ongoing basis to see why it continues to exceed its budget. The problem, however, seems evident: demand for services outstrips supply of dollars. But there may be a way out of this morass if people can be convinced to make healthier choices and if those choices are easy and obvious to make. If we can reduce stress-related health problems, cancer rates and heart attack rates, wouldn’t we all be better off? Can we be healthier? Can cities be more walkable? Can cities offer more recreational programming at low or no cost? Once everyone starts to take responsibility for their health, there is a good chance the health care system can be available for the people who need it most.

Farmland fight sheds little light on agriculture BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA etailed debate on changes to the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC) got underway last week in the legislature while protesters played to urban voters outside. A couple of West Kootenay NDP supporters brought a basket of homegrown veggies to help East Kootenay MLA Bill Bennett get through the winter on a 100-mile diet. A group of mostly UBC scientists wrote to Premier Christy Clark, embracing the popular assumption that the changes will automatically mean more exclusions of agricultural land as well as expanded secondary uses in the Cariboo, Kootenay and North zones. This “jeopardizes species at risk, threatens many common species and will impact many species prized for hunting,”they wrote. It makes me wonder if these university

botanists and bird experts actually understand what farming is.You know, clear-cutting a forest and planting largely monoculture crops? Using big machinery, creating drainage, applying fertilizers, controlling diseases, pests and wild animals? Not backyard gardening, real farming of the sort that has fed more people than in all of human history? Have they heard that the largest cause of deforestation in North America is farming? Do they imagine habitat loss from subdivisions sprawling across the Cariboo? Forests Minister Steve Thomson has been pinch-hitting for Fort St. John MLA Pat Pimm on the agriculture file as Pimm undergoes cancer treatment. Thomson took exception when NDP agriculture critic Nicolas Simons asked if he is aware people think the changes are to“neuter the chair of the Agricultural Land Commission.” Thomson, a former executive director of the Kelowna-based BC Agriculture Association, replied that the changes do not reduce the independence of the chair. Under further questioning from Simons,

Thomson allowed that the current ALC chair, Richard Bullock, has provided no response to the government on the proposals. Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick was appointed Friday to replace Pimm as agriculture minister but this ALC project is Bennett’s initiative, so I asked him about his changes to the appointment process. Bennett said the six regional panels, up to three people each, were set up by then-minister Stan Hagen in 2003 to provide local input. That worked well, he said, until Bullock came on the scene and began exercising his discretion not to appoint people recommended by cabinet. “The chair doesn’t like the regional panels,” Bennett told me.“It’s a pain in the ass for the chair to have to deal with 18 farmers from all over the province in making decisions. It would be six farmers because only one person from the regional panel actually sits on the provincial commission. “He thinks that it’s unwieldy and he’d rather have the decision-making centralized in Burnaby. But we changed that. We decided as a duly elected government in 2003 that we

wanted the regions to have a say on this stuff, so the intention of the legislation, we felt, was actually being defeated because we hadn’t made it mandatory.” It will be mandatory soon and Bullock’s days as commission chair appear to be numbered. “There’s no more discretion for any future chair to monkey with it,”Bennett said. One of Bennett’s key issues is denial of secondary residence construction to keep families on the land in the Interior. The legislation also introduces social and economic factors in weighing decisions in the North, Cariboo and Kootenay regions, where, in most cases, development pressure is an urban myth. The main ALC board will still have authority to revisit a local panel decision if the chair deems it inconsistent with the mandate to protect farmland.

TRI-CITY leTTeRs

Royal City is a royal pain provincial capital was moved there 150 years ago. Such quaint and parochial delusions of importance, or the converse claim that poor little New Westminster is bullied by its larger neighbours, just don’t cut it. This delusion persists despite the royal tour by New West city councillors of neighbouring councils pleading the case for their version of a Pattullo Bridge option. (This tour bypassed Coquitlam council, perhaps because New West rightly believed its reception here would be even worse than the negative reactions they received in

Port Coquitlam, Burnaby and Surrey.) There are other regional problems and initiatives that may find solutions in a rethink outside of the box in which New Westminster likes to reside. One deleterious consequence of its failure to think regionally is the very real threat of constricted access to Royal Columbian Hospital, the only regional piece of infrastructure that New Westminster embraces. But I don’t think that even Port Moody’s push for expansion of Eagle Ridge Hospital’s emergency room offer anything but a stop-

gap measure to ensure health, safety and timely services outside of New Westminster. Perhaps it is time to push for a larger regional hospital presence outside of the Kingdom of New Westminster. It seems to me the Riverview Hospital site may present an alternative to the transportation gridlocked Royal Columbian Hospital. The Riverview site is well-served by transportation corridors, the site is available and money designated for a Royal Columbian expansion could be diverted to the benefit of all. E.C.

Thanks for helping hands after the fire The Editor, I am one of the owners put out by a fire on April 1 and I have nothing but good to say about all the help we received. Thank you to all of the public services that helped make being out of our homes more bearable. I would like to thank Coquitlam Emergency

Services (CES) for the great assistance it provided. Most of us felt lost without a place to go back into but his feeling was short-lived when CES offered us accommodations at the Executive Plaza Hotel. I wish to also thank TransLink for sending a bus to take those

without transport to the emergency co-ordination centre and back again in order to get personal items from their units, and the hotel, which sent its van to our building to pick up these people up and take them back the next morning, when we got the all-clear to return to our homes.

On a more personal note: In Montreal, I had to deal with a house fire that took the life of my mom so this incident brought back some bad memories. These were shortlived, however, with all the help we got. Thank you to everyone who helped. Fantastic.     Gary Kinsley, Coquitlam

The Editor, Re. “Bailey bridge battle brewing” (The TriCity News, April 9) and “Hallway medicine?” (April 11). The old expression “beating your head against a brick wall” came to mind as I contemplated the ongoing dispute between Coquitlam and New Westminster over the Band-Aid Bailey bridge at Braid Street. It seems the Royal City believes it has some royal prerogative to unilaterally frustrate regional transportation issues despite the fact that it lost out to Victoria when the

Jim Kempton felt only relief when he was told he had cancer. Finally, he could put a name to his pain and fight it with all his might. Six months prior, the Port Coquitlam man woke up with an ache in his neck. A few weeks later, his left arm went numb. When his right arm and both hands became frozen, too, Kempton had to tell his bandmates he had to stop drumming. It broke his heart. So did advice from the doctor not to lift his then fouryear-old daughter and to stop a variety of tasks until the medical mystery was solved. Kempton tried alternative therapies — massage, acupuncture, chiropractor, physio — but they didn’t help much. Then his leg went numb as well and he lost his balance.  His neurologist ordered an MRI, finding a malignant tumour at his neck that was pressing on the spinal cord; another tumour was found in his abdomen.  “I was happy because then I knew,”he said.“And I was confident I was going to be OK.” His wife, Diane, however, was distraught. A year earlier, her best friend died of cancer, leaving behind two children. She was afraid she would be left alone to raise their daughter, Kempton said. After the diagnosis, things moved quickly. Within a week, Kempton was at Vancouver General Hospital (where he works in the chemistry lab) for a biopsy to determine the type of cancer. He had surgery and it was a success. “I could move my hand,”he said. Chemotherapy treatments at the BC Cancer Agency started immediately and he was placed on a new drug being used on Non-Hodgkin lymphoma patients to shrink tumours. The new medicine, with the chemo, would increase his chances from 60% to 70%, he was told. The three-week cycles lasted from January to May 2004 and, over time, the feeling returned to his limbs. Best of all, within a couple of months, he was back playing drums with his pals in the South Van Big Band. Kempton took the year off work to recuperate — “the silver lining to all of this” as he got to spend quality time with his daughter, Morgan. Nine months after the surgery, the family was

off for his first trek, with Diane and Morgan cheering him on at the start line. This June, for the fifth year in a row, Kempton will lead four other cyclists on the journey — Maria Schulz, Anne Wu, Erik Minty and Eric Ho — as part of Team Beat It. Each rider is responsible for collecting the required $2,500 deposit and, this month, they will host a dinner and concert featuring the 17-piece South Van Big Band with Andrea Superstein on vocals. Kempton, of course, will be on drums. Drumming and collecting money to beat cancer — a disease he kicked a decade ago — are now Kempton’s passions. As for his upcoming two-day ride to Seattle on the Father’s Day weekend, “I want to make it every year for as long as I can make it.”

Contests e-Edition Obits

Free oral cancer screening locally Two Coquitlam dental offices will be joining clinics across the Lower Mainland to offer free cancer screenings to the public this week. According to the BC Cancer Agency (BCCA), about 500 new cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year in B.C. and 170 patients die from the disease — often because the disease wasn’t caught soon enough. But with

advances in technology, dental professionals can detect a wide variety of oral malignancies before they develop into cancer. In Canada, the BCCA says the technology can detect an estimated 84% of oral cancers so the College of Dental Surgeons of BC recommends dental professionals incorporate oral cancer screening in their regular patient exams. To promote health, Willow Dental Care will

waive the usual fee of $34 for an oral screening as part of its community initiatives exam today (Wednesday) and tomorrow. Patients are, however, encouraged to contribute a donation, which will be matched by Willow Dental and 123Dentist.com, with proceeds donated to the BC Cancer Foundation. Visit 123Dentist.com or willowdentalcare. com to make an appointment.

Happy Easter

Please join me in celebrating this special time of year! Best wishes for the coming months. Mike Farnworth, MLA Port Coquitlam 107A - 2748 Lougheed Hwy.,

Back to school for PoCo staff $96k to put 24 city hall staff through BCIT courses

IN QUOTES

“We get the benefit of their learning and the benefit of them coming together cross-functionally.”

By Gary McKenna

John Leeburn, PoCo CAO (left)

The TrI-CITy News

Two dozen city of Port Coquitlam staffers are going back to school at the end of the month. Twenty-four people from across city hall were selected out of 65 people who were interested in an eight-class BCIT program that will lead to an associate certificate in leadership. The program is expected to cost $96,000, with books, materials and tuition totalling $500 per student, per class. That works out to about $12,000 per class for the 24 students. PoCo’s chief administrative officer, John Leeburn, said the initia-

tive will improve staff development and help break down some of the departmental divisions that can occur in a large organization. “Bringing 24 people together for 30 weeks a year… gets people to know each other and each department,” he said.“That is 24 folks who will have a good understanding of our operation across the city.” While many cities have in-house training and educational opportu-

nities, Leeburn said the fact BCIT will run the program means staff will receive school credits that can be applied to other post-secondary work. Students who participate in the program will meet every Thursday at 2:30 p.m. at city hall. The class will finish up at 6:30 p.m., taking up two hours of staff time and two hours of personal time. There will also be some homework that is expected to be completed outside of work hours. The course is tailored to Port Coquitlam, with many projects and assignments focused on city

initiatives. Leeburn said that can often lead to new ideas coming out of the classroom that can be used by the municipality. “We get the benefit of their learning and the benefit of them coming together cross-functionally,” he said. “As well, they’ll be tailoring many of the homework assignments to city projects, so we’ll also get research and ideas we can implement out of this.” The BCIT coursework comes at a time when the city is reorganizing many of its departments. PoCo launched its Continuous Improvement

Assessment program in January, a process the city said will involve scrutinizing each department’s activities to find efficiencies. There have also been several new department heads hired in the last few months. Kristen Meersman, previously the streets and capital projects manager with the city of Kamloops, will be taking over from Andrew Wood as engineering and operations director. Other new department heads have been promoted from within, according to a PoCo press release. In February Robin Wishart moved from manager of information services to director of corporate support while Karen Grommada was promoted from manager of financial reporting and accounting services to director of finance last June.

Seismic work plus a sidewalk expansion are complete on the Moody Street overpass in Port Moody.

PM overpass opening The public is invited to a celebration of the re-opening of the Moody Street overpass and the PoMo Rotary Bike Trials Park on Saturday at 11 a.m. The celebration will be held on the north end of the Moody Street overpass beside Rocky Point Park and will mark the completion of a $1.9-million sidewalk widening and seismic upgrade paid for with the help of grants from the Ministry of Transportation and TransLink. Work included seismic strengthening of the structure and the addition of 3 m of sidewalk on the east side of the bridge to allow a separated dual pathway for cyclists and pedestrians. Fencing was also strengthened to meet Evergreen Line standards and was paid for by the Evergreen Line project. A public art portion is also planned for the new walkway area. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

National Oral Health Month

Keryluk Laser Dental Dr. Glenn Keryluk is pleased to announce that Dr. Susan Wacker is joining him in general practice. She brings over 20 years of exceptional dental experience to Port Coquitlam.

New recommendations for pediatric oral healthcare Dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease. As more and more children develop cavities, new advice is being offered to those who care for young children's emerging and established teeth. While it was once recommended to use water only or a nonfluoride toothpaste to clean teeth of the very young, it is now recommended the use of fluoride toothpaste even for young children, saying parents and other caregivers should brush their kids' teeth with fluoride toothpaste as soon as the first tooth comes in. It is recommended that caregivers use a smear of fluoride toothpaste (or an amount about the size of a grain of rice) for children younger than three years old and a pea-size amount of fluoride toothpaste for children between the ages of three and six years old. The updated guidelines are intended to provide children with the full benefit of cavity protection while limiting their risk of developing fluorosis, which is a mild discoloration of teeth usually appearing as faint lines. It’s found that using just a "smear" of toothpaste for children younger than three years old and a pea-size amount for children between the ages of three and six helps to prevent cavities and is less likely to cause fluorosis. Children should spit out toothpaste as soon as they are old enough to do so. Caregivers also are urged to take their children to the dentist when the first tooth erupts or no later than a child's first birthday. Semiannual or annual visits thereafter should be the norm, or as directed by a dentist. Oral healthcare is important for people of all ages, including very young children with cavities.

Women and Periodontal Disease Periodontal diseases, also known as gum disease, are chronic bacterial infections that can damage the gums and bone supporting the teeth. Left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss. Although plaque is the primary cause of periodontal disease, other factors can affect the health of your gums and the bone supporting your teeth. Smoking and tobacco use, stress, medications, diabetes and other general health concerns, poor nutrition, clenching or grinding your teeth, and hormonal fluctuations can increase your chance of getting certain kinds of periodontal disease.

Puberty and Menstruation - As a young woman’s body matures during puberty, the production of sex hormones increase. This may cause an increase in the gums’ sensitivity and lead to a greater reaction to any irritation, including food particles and plaque. Occasionally, some women experience menstruation gingivitis marked by reappearing gingival bleeding, a bright red swelling of the gums between the teeth or sores on the inside of the cheeks. This condition typically occurs right before a woman’s period and clears up once her period has started. It is important to maintain oral health during these hormonal fluctuations, including at-home oral hygiene and regular professional dental care, so that the bone and tissues surrounding the teeth are not damaged.

Pregnancy - Most commonly, women can experience increased

How to make flossing easier for kids It is well known that a combination of brushing, flossing and periodic dental checkups are essential to oral health. Some parents teach their children to brush thoroughly early on, even taking them for dental visits at young ages so youngsters can become acclimated to the dentist’s office. But flossing is one component of oral hygiene that may be overlooked because many kids simply don’t enjoy it. Flossing is one of those tasks that people understand they must do regularly, but many still do not. Flossing cleans bacteria and trapped food from between the teeth. Brushing only reaches the surface of the teeth, but floss is required to get into the small crevices to prevent bacteria from turning into plaque buildup. The Dental Association recommends flossing at least once per day. It is far better to floss once a day and do a thorough job rather than several times a day and miss areas of the mouth by doing it quickly. Children should be urged to floss regularly in addition to brushing. However, flossing can be cumbersome for youngsters who have yet to develop the dexterity needed to manipulate dental floss. There are many products available and techniques that can be used to assist children with cleaning between their teeth. The following are some flossing tips for kids. • Begin the introduction to floss early. The younger children are introduced to floss, the more likely they are to embrace flossing as part of their oral hygiene routine. • Show visual proof of the benefits of flossing. Oftentimes, children are more likely to respond to something they can see. Show pictures of dental decay and what occurs when proper oral hygiene is not followed. This may help make the concept of flossing more attractive. • Get the proper tools. Kids cannot floss unless they have floss products on hand. There are various age-appropriate flossers and types of dental floss available. Children may not be able to use dental floss properly because of a lack of dexterity. However, floss picks are much easier to hold and work between the teeth, particularly for kids with small hands. Floss should always be Continue to page A-19

gingivitis, or pregnancy gingivitis, beginning in the second or third month that increases in severity through the eighth month. In some cases, gums swollen by pregnancy gingivitis can react strongly to local irritants and form large lumps, called pregnancy tumors that are generally painless and may require professional removal. If you are pregnant, or planning to become pregnant, you need to know that your periodontal health can affect the health of your baby. Studies have shown any infection during pregnancy, including periodontal infection, is cause for concern and may put you at significant risk for delivering a premature, low birthweight baby. Why take the chance? Include periodontal health in your prenatal care.

Menopause - If you are menopausal or post-menopausal, you may have noticed a change in the way your mouth looks or feels. These symptoms may be related to changes occurring in your body, but a clear understanding of why this happens is not yet established. You may experience discomfort in your mouth, including pain and altered taste, especially salty, peppery or sour. Most women find that estrogen supplements, either in pill form or a solution applied directly to the affected tissue, help to relieve these symptoms. Additionally, saliva substitutes are available to lessen the effects of a “dry” mouth. During this period of a woman’s life, professional cleanings and diligent at-home oral hygiene are essential. If you experience any symptoms associated with menopause or post-menopause, be sure to talk with your dentist or periodontist. He or she will tailor a treatment plan to help manage your condition.

National Oral Health Month

The right time for braces Orthodontic braces are used to help position and align an individual’s teeth. Getting braces is something that is typically seen as a rite of childhood. But many parents are unsure as to when their children should be fitted for braces. Although many children benefit the most from getting braces between the ages of 10 and 15, Dentists advise that children should get their first orthodontic screening by the age of seven, when there may be a mixture of permanent and juvenile teeth in the child’s mouth. The orthodontist may be able to forecast any future problems that may arise and note if there are any preliminary steps that can be taken. Even though many children wait until adolescence to get braces, and most doctors will want to monitor kids’ oral structure as they grow, familiarity with a child’s mouth enables an orthodontist to act when the time is right. Some orthodontists work to remedy an overbite or underbite, and they also may address spacing issues. How braces work Braces straighten teeth by putting steady pressure on the teeth to help shift the teeth into correct position. The orthodontist will determine how long to keep the braces on. As the teeth shift, the wires that are part of the braces will be cut and adjusted accordingly. Teeth that require extra help may necessitate the use of specialized headgear to impart extra pressure on the mouth. Today’s braces are much less noticeable than those of yesteryear. Some braces are smaller in profile, and there are clear varieties and those that are placed behind the teeth. The wires used in braces also have changed. They are smaller and more technologically advanced to help straighten teeth faster and easier. Living with braces Braces will require some alterations to a child’s diet as well as his or her oral hygiene routine. Sticky foods or ones with small particles that tend to lodge between the teeth should be avoided as much as possible. Chewing gum can be exceptionally troublesome. Sticky candies may get stuck, and you could pull off brackets trying to unlodge the candy.

“Flossing” from page A-18

Keeping teeth clean also will require a few extra steps. Because of the small parts and crevices braces create in the mouth, food can lodge in areas more easily. If left that way, one could end up with tooth decay. It is adviseable to use specially designed floss brushes and picks to clean the teeth and dislodge any trapped particles. Also, continue with routine dental cleanings as scheduled. After braces At the time braces are removed, most patients are fitted for a retainer that will be worn at certain periods of the day (usually at night) to help keep teeth aligned properly. It is important to continue to use the retainer as advised by the orthodontist to help prevent teeth from shifting or becoming crooked once more. Braces are a necessity for thousands of people. They’re generally applied during the preteen years, but younger children as well as adults have used braces successfully.

Braces are often an important component of oral health. The average age for getting braces is between 10 and 15 years of age. However, parents should take kids to see an orthodontist when permanent teeth start coming in.

on hand, whether at home or when you go on vacation. • Let kids choose. Take kids down the dental aisle at the store and let them pick and choose which products they want to use. They may be more excited to brush and floss if they’re using something they picked out themselves. • Lead by example. Children will be more likely to floss if they see their parents flossing. That means adults should floss regularly and let their children watch and learn. Benefits of flossing Removing bacteria and trapped food from teeth has a number of benefits. Bacteria can cause bad breath, but flossing and brushing helps to keep breath smelling fresh. Children may be more inclined to floss if they know they’ll be preventing cavities and avoiding potentially painful trips to the dentist. Plaque trapped between the teeth and along the gum line that leads to periodontal disease puts a person at a greater risk for heart disease. There are some studies that show bacteria from the mouth can end up in the bloodstream. Flossing is a necessary component of good oral hygiene. Everyone should floss, no matter their age, and children should begin flossing as soon as their mouth starts to fill out with pearly whites.

Guide to Summer Activities Things to consider before choosing a summer camp

the training include first aid and emergency medical training and certification? It’s also good to ask about the vetting process the camp employs before hiring new staff, including the extent of its background checks. Are criminal background checks conducted? How many references must potential staff members supply to be considered for employment? A good camp will be forthcoming with answers to all of your questions, so eliminate those that appear hesitant to share information about their staffs. A DAY IN THE LIFE When vetting camps for kids, parents should ask what a typical day is like once the season hits full swing. Many parents want their youngsters to have a well-rounded experience, while others might want their kids to attend a more specialized camp, whether it’s a sports camp focusing on a particular sport or a music camp devoted to helping kids become better musicians. Regardless of the type of camp parents are considering for their kids, they should ask about what daily life at the camp is like. Ask to see schedules and how strictly camps adhere to those schedules. When considering specialized camps, ask the staff representative if kids will have the chance to simply have a little fun and which types

of recreational activities are planned to give kids a break from what are often rigorous schedules. CAMP GOALS Another thing parents must consider before choosing a summer camp for their kids is the goals of each individual camp. A camp should be dedicated to ensuring kids have fun, even when kids are attending more specialized camps that tend to be more strict. In addition, parents should look for a camp that wants its attendees to foster relationships with their fellow campers. Camp can be lonely for some youngsters, especially those attending summer camp for the first time, but a summer camp that strives to promote friendship among its campers can reduce, if not eliminate, any feelings of homesickness.

Summer camp is often something kids look forward to, and something they will fondly recall long after they reach adulthood. For many kids, summer camp provides a first taste of independence, as youngsters spend significant time away from home without their parents for the first time in their lives. But as great an experience as summer camp can be for youngsters, it can be just as difficult an experience if parents don’t find the right fit for their children. That’s why it behooves parents to start thinking about summer camps for their kids in winter, before camps start filling out their rosters, which tends to happen in early spring. The following are a few things parents should take into consideration when seeking a summer camp for their kids. STAFF The right summer campRstaff I-CITcan Y make all the difference.

On the hot seat: some good climate change reads A GOOD READ

Vanessa Colantonio

A

pril 22, 2014 is the 25th Earth Day and the issues that were raised at the first one have become ever more urgent. The same could be said for the never-ending stream of books (and DVDs) on climate change, the oceans, arable land and food system in peril, and books on sustainable living. Heat: How to Stop the Planet from Burning is by Guardian journalist and activist George Monbiot. In a book packed with scientific, historical and economic data, Monbiot argues that humankind’s relationship with fossil fuels is a “Faustian pact.” In fact, each chapter begins with quote from Christopher Marlowe’s play Doctor Faustus just to drive the point home: The magic of imported goods, food

and cheap energy has its initial pleasures and its eventual consequences. Still, Heat is an optimistic book in that Monbiot thinks we can reduce carbon emissions by 90% by 2030 without “bringing civilization to an end.” Andrew Weaver, a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, presents many solutions to climate change — some of them controversial — in Keeping our Cool: Canada in a Warming World. Providing a detailed explanation of how climate analysis is done, Weaver goes on to offer energy alternatives: some of them (wind, solar, geothermal) renewable, some of them (the controversial ones, nuclear and liquid natural gas) not. If readers can swallow that latter, this book can do much to educate them on the field of climate science and energy sources. Dirt: The Erosion of

Civilizations, by professor David R. Montgomery, examines the delicate relationship between soil and agriculture and the health and wealth of civilizations. Montgomery takes the very long view, showing how intensive farming practices lead to soil depletion and economic collapse in the Fertile Crescent, ancient Egypt, ancient Rome and in the New World (e.g. the 1930s Dust Bowl). Running counter to these large trends are efforts at organic and sustainable agriculture that have gained momentum over the last few decades. Will we use these to prevent playing the same fate in our civilization? The answer lies, Montgomery says, in “treating dirt as something other than dirt.” Rising sea levels, acidification, islands of plastic bottles — when we think about oceans, sadly, these features now

come to mind. Ocean’s End: Travels through Endangered Seas by Colin Woodward gives readers a fish-eye view of the damage and of those who are trying to do something about it. We are taken around the world to witness the destruction of sea life, the collapse of local fishing economies and the expansion of toxic dead zones. In the end, journalist Woodward reminds us that neither our oceans nor our planet are unlimited. The Weekend Homesteader: A TwelveMonth Guide to SelfSufficiency is written by full-time homesteader Anna Hess and is meant as a transition guide of sorts for those who want to ease themselves into living off the land — rural or urban. In The Weekend Homesteader, you can learn the basics of tasks such as planning a garden, saving seeds, canning, storing drink-

AND A FOOD FLICK, TOO

There have been many documentaries made on food over the past few years. Without a doubt, one of the most talked about is Food, Inc. This film, available on DVD, reveals the harsh realties of the modern food industry, from factory farming and slaughterhouses to processing plants and fast food outlets. Food, Inc. also includes interviews with, among others, Michael Pollan (author as well as the film’s consultant and narrator), Joel Salatin (organic farmer and entrepreneur) and Gary Hirshberg (former CEO of organic yogurt producer Stonyfield Farm). The scenes of animal suffering in factory farms is sure to break anyone’s heart but the film also shows many humane alternatives and makes clear that the choice is up to all of us. ing water, crafting out of recycled materials, and beekeeping. All of these are plotted in chapters organized in an April-toMarch calendar. Hess also provides tips throughout (e.g. where to buy in-season produce, how to heat during power outages), making the learning curve throughout the year challenging but not too steep. Hess’ book is simple and

user-friendly, the perfect beginner’s guide. For those interested in making a deeper commitment to sustainable living, there is The Transition Handbook: from Oil Dependency to Local Resilience by Rob Hopkins, who also runs a blog called transitionnetwork.org. This handbook details how to establish off-the-grid neighbour-

hoods and communities and the day-to-day tasks involved in making them work. The Transition Handbook is a user’s manual to grassroots community building. Ecovillages: A Practical Guide to Sustainable Communities by Jan Martin Bang gives more than climate change-era survival tips — it paints a vivid picture of what our lives and communities could look like in the near future provided we play our cards right. Bang’s book does this through showing examples of sustainable communities from all over the world, including pioneering ones such as Scotland’s Findhorn and Camphill Botton in England — diverse, vibrant and colourful places. A Good Read is a column by Tri-City librarians that is published on Wednesdays. Vanessa Colantonio works at Coquitlam Public Library.

JANIS WARREN/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

D.B. Carew, a social worker at Forensic Psychiatric Hospital at Colony Farm regional park in Coquitlam, has his first novel out called The Killer Trail, which is set in part in Mundy Park.

A killer in the woods By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

He approached James Carrier’s body, not so much to ensure he was dead — the gaping hole in the chest pretty much confirmed that — but because Ray Owens always liked to inspect his handiwork. o starts The Killer Trail, the first novel to be penned by Tri-City resident Derrick Carew that spins the web of gunman Ray Owens and his entrapment of social worker Chris Ryder. Ryder, like Carew, is a social worker at the local psychiatric institution who likes to go for runs. Carew based his novel after picking up a lost cell phone in Mundy Park about five years ago. Carew had always wanted to craft a book and it was while he was trying to connect the phone to the owner that his tale started to take shape. “I kept thinking, ‘Who did this belong to? Why was it here?’ My imagination really took off.” Carew cultivated his passion for the arts after he moved to B.C. from Newfoundland. He lived in a house full of musicians and

S

his creative juices flowed, too, though more toward literature. Carew, who has a master’s degree in social work from Dalhousie University, read books, took classes, joined literary groups and learned from professionals who advised:“Write what you know.” And so he took elements from his 15-year career at the Forensic Psychiatric Institute at Colony Farm and fictionalized them for the thriller, with the aim to shed light on the complex side of mental illness. Carew’s work, which comes out May 15 through NeWest Press, has already received recognition: It made the shortlist for the Debut Dagger at the 2013 Crime Writers’ Association Awards — which “really gave me a big boost to my confidence,” Carew said — and it has been praised by established writers like Robin Spano (Death’s Last Run) and Garry Ryan (the Detective Lane mystery series). As for his next move, Carew wants a trilogy and has already started writing the second and third books for The Killer Trail, which will be released in time for the 2014 Bloody Words conference in Toronto. jwarren@tricitynews.com

It’s been somewhat of a rocky road this season for Stage 43. Last September, the Coquitlam theatrical society started so far in the red that many members considered closing the club for good after more than 30 years. Its capital account for a new standalone facility was tapped to pay for operations and its January production was scaled back to make ends meet. Then, just before Christmas, two gifts arrived: the city awarded Stage 43 a $20,500 Spirit of Coquitlam casino grant and another $10,000 cheque was deposited by the provincial government as part of its gaming revenues. But less than two months later, they got more bad news. A unit close to the Aberdeen warehouse where the club rehearses and stores costumes and sets was destroyed fire; luckily none of its possessions was damaged though they had to use a generator for power supply until the building repairs were complete.  Also that month, the club marked the sudden passing of director Gaye LePage and actor Steven Burridge. Despite the ups and downs, Stage 43 has shared a lot of laughs, said director Jacqollyne Keath. Its last event of the season that opens next week is Seduced by Moonlight — “a delightful comedy, an audience pleaser with a twist that has been a fun one to do,”said Keath.  Penned by Claire Harrison and Clive Doucet, the narrative centres on a middle-aged couple who write romance novels but need to rekindle the passion in their marriage. The rom-com will be Stage 43’s entry in the Theatre BC Fraser Valley Zone Festival next month. Still, it won’t be the only thing on the members’ minds in May as they try to source out new digs when their five-year lease runs out on May 31. Producer Claire Pinkett said the club will put many pieces in a storage locker until an area can be found. “We will look for rehearsal space in community centres, community halls, schools, etc., for the time being while we restructure and figure out what direction we should head.” • Seduced by Moonlight runs at the Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam) from April 24 to 27 and April 30 to May 3. All shows are at 8 p.m. except April 27 is a 2 p.m. matinee. The content has adult themes and the audience should be over 18. Call 604-927-6555. jwarren@tricitynews.com

New banners for PoCo streets New banners will go up to adorn Port Coquitlam’s streets following a community-wide contest that saw nearly 90 entries. The city, with the help of online voters, picked 25 photos to represent the themes of acting living, nature, city living, community spirit, and arts and culture. The new banners will replace the city’s 100th anniversary flags that featured the faces of people active in the community; they will be placed a ro u n d d ow n town PoCo, on the Coast Meridian O ve r p a s s , t h e PoCo rec complex, city hall and the Hyde Creek rec centre. Last week, the city announced the winners of the banner contest: Jeremy Current, Rhea Hayes, D av i d H o d g e , Ethan Kazemir, Steve Kazemir, Paul Livingston, Port Coquitlam Sports Alliance, Mike Robertson, Rhea Rose, Eran Roubini and Linda Stacey. Residents and groups that took part in the banner contest will be recognized at a reception on April 28 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Leigh Square Community Arts Village.

I have terrible PMS every month and my periods are really heavy – is there anything natural I can take to get some relief?

Jay Hirabayashi and Barbara Bourget of Kokoro Dance will speak about their company, its butoh-western fusion and the Vancouver International Dance Festival it produces annually, at Place des Arts (1120 Brunette Ave., Coquitlam) on April 24.

Poetry of butoh Partially clad dancers with shaved heads and white body make-up? It’s a contemporary form that started in Japan and is now being carried on — and fused with western movements — by the Vancouverbased Kokoro Dance. Company co-founders Jay Hirabayashi and his wife Barbara Bourget will talk about their love of butoh as part of Place des Arts’ next Salon Speaker Series next week in Coquitlam. Butoh, said Hirabayashi, has a radical departure from the normal way of viewing movement because it in-

corporates interior imagery. “Unlike ballet, where you are taught technical ways of moving, it starts with a meditation on more poetic images that you place in your body and allow your body to respond,”he said. Founded in 1959 by Hijikata Tatsumi and Ohno Kazuo, butoh finds emotional expression through the dancer becoming an image such as pictures of a sculpture or lines of poetry, he explained. Hirabayashi said the form has become so popular that at least one butoh troupe is represented each year at the

Vancouver International Dance Festival, which their 28-year-old company produces. For their talk next Thursday, Hirabayashi and Bourget — a former dancer with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and Les Grands Ballets Canadiens — will show videos and answer questions from the audience. • Jay Hirabayashi and Barbara Bourget will speak at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts (1120 B r u n e t t e Ave . ) o n Thursday, April 24 at 7:30 p.m. For tickets at $5, call 604-664-1636 or visit placedesarts.ca.

Premenstrual syndrome, also known as PMS, can include symptoms such as mood swings, depression, cravings, bloating, water retention and headaches. PMS can occur for up to 2 weeks before the onset of a woman’s menstrual flow and affects somewhere between 70 to 90% of women. An imbalance in hormones, especially the ratio of estrogen to progesterone, is commonly the culprit for many women. This is often referred to as “Estrogen Dominance” and can develop as a result of poor diet, a sluggish liver and exposure to excess environmental estrogens found in plastics, cosmetics, pesticides, the birth control pill, or hormone replacement therapy. Estrogen dominance has been linked to a wide range of conditions, including heavy, painful periods, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, infertility and even estrogen dependent cancers such as breast and uterine cancers. The herb milk thistle has a long history of being a very safe liver detoxifier. A healthy liver helps to eliminate and detoxify these harmful and excess estrogens in order to boost the body’s metabolic rate and ensure that estrogen and progesterone are in healthy balance. Other beneficial herbs to help balance high estrogen levels include: curcumin, calciumd-glucarate, indole-3-carbinol and sulforaphane. EstroSense® is a safe and effective detoxifier that helps to eliminate those harmful, excess estrogens so that you can have effortless and PMS free periods!

more exact with representation; however, over time, the designs —  especially with the rocks and shells series — have become “more spare and personal. The rocks are more abstract. It’s more about the shapes and colour and texture.”  A past president of the Port Moody Art Association and a former regional director of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour, White said she has also changed her painter’s stance since a recent car accident. These days, White uses an easel rather than bending over a table.  As well, White feels her time has become more relaxed with her retired husband at home. In the past, she kept a 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. schedule in the studio, “which is always a good discipline to have,”the art instructor said.  • The opening reception for Maggie White’s  Seeing Red, Feeling the Blues & Rockin’ It is Thursday, April 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Port Moody Arts Centre (2425 St. John’s St.). The display closes May 8.Visit pomoarts.ca.

Is Maggie White seeing red, feeling the blues or just plain rockin’ it? It appears to be all three as the Port Moody painter opens an exhibit of new and retrospective works at the Port Moody Arts Centre tomorrow (Thursday). For  the show, White will install 50 watercolour, acrylic, oil and charcoal images — most of which have never been displayed publicly — from about nine series. There are landscapes and florals and pigeons, “you know, things that are West Coast-ishy,” said the English native who has called Port Moody home for 32 years.  White credits her grandmother — a well-known artist — for guiding her future career, often leading the child on field trips to sketch and paint. And the art gene was passed down, as both White’s mother and daughter also like to create but prefer to use clay as their medium, she said.  Looking back over 25 years worth of paintings, White can see how her style has evolved. Back then, she was

Express are one win away Ryan Rosenthal’s late-game heroics put Coq. within one win of cup By Gary McKenna The TRi-CiTy News

ELAINE FLEURY PHOTO

The Coquitlam Express are one win away from taking home the BCHL’s Fred Page Cup, after defeating the Vernon Vipers Monday night in Game 3 of the final series.

Fox Ravens jr. rugby team takes top spot in Tri-Cities Team will take on Aldergrove in exhibition this week The Terry Fox Jr. Ravens rugby squad continued its win streak after defeating the Charles Best Blue Devils last Monday. Fox’s Sean Stewart got the game off to

a fast start, darting through the Blue Devils’ defensive line with an opening try six minutes into the contest. However, Best retaliated with a try of their own, making it 7-5 Ravens five minutes later. In the second half, Stewart and teammate Devin Passaglia were able to cross the Blue

Devils’ goal line to extend the Ravens’ lead to 19-5. But the Blue Devils would respond again, scoring two unanswered tries to close the gap to 19-17 with four minutes left. However, a late-game try from Aaron Szigeti gave the Ravens some insurance points and the game ended 24-17. The 3-0 record also

puts Fox in the top spot of the Upper Fraser valley North tier one division. Team captain Taylor Poitras received the man of the match honours. The Ravens will now take on the Aldergrove Totems in exhibition play on home field Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.

For Ryan Rosenthal, it’s now how the game begins that matters but how it ends. And the Coquitlam Express captain managed an exciting finish in Game 3 of the BCHL Fred Page Cup finals Monday night, scoring with just over a minute left in the third to tie it up before potting the game-winner in overtime. Coquitlam struggled early, managing just 12 shots in the first two periods against the burly Vernon Vipers, whose forwards managed to keep the home team hemmed into their own end for most of the first 40 minutes. But Coquitlam was

undeterred, Rosenthal said. “Going into the locker room when we are down a goal, we still have a lot of confidence,” he said after the game. “Everyone is pretty sure we can come back and win the game. We go out there with confidence.” Coquitlam looked like a different team in the third, quickly doubling their shot total and using their speed to keep the play in Vernon’s end. But goals were elusive on Monday night and it wasn’t until Rosenthal managed to streak down the right-wing to put the puck past Vernon goalie Austin Smith with just 71 seconds left in regulation that the Express were able to tie it up. The captain had been unsuccessful on a similar attempt a minute earlier, but managed to hit twine on the second chance from an awkward angle to make it 2-2. see wITh 71, page 28

Cents notch first win, Blue Devils keep rolling Sierra Leung scored two goals and setup a third as her Centennial Centaurs defeated the Gleneagle Talons 3-0 in AAA high school girls’ soccer Monday night. The Cents were strong in their own end for most of the match, with keeper Veronica Aguiar earning the shutout, while

Paige Benning anchored a stingy defense. M e a n wh i l e , t h e R i ve r s i d e R a p i d s notched its first win of the season with a 3-0 showing against the 1-2 Maple Ridge secondary squad. The Terry Fox Ravens hung onto second place in the North Zone stand-

ings with a 3-2 victory over the Heritage Woods Kodiaks. The Kodiaks are currently in fourth place with a 2-2 record. Port Moody continued to struggle Monday against the Charles Best Blue Devils, which has a 4-0 record and sit atop the standings.

IN QUOTES

“I was just looking for a spot to shoot at,” he said. “I was just trying to find a way to get it to the net and maybe someone would get the rebound.” In the final goal of the game, Rosenthal passed to teammate Corey Mackin, who was too low to take a shot. Mackin passed it right back to Rosenthal who buried the game winner. The club now takes a 3-0 series lead in the finals, one game away from taking home the Fred Page Cup. But Monday’s celebration will be short lived, according to Express coach Barry Wolff. With Game 4 expected to take place Tuesday night (after The Tri-City News’ deadline) he said it was important for his players to stay focused on the series. “It’s far from over,” he said. “We know Vernon is not going to go away. They are going to come out even harder than they have. They are desperate now.” Wolff has been in a similar position before. In 2005 he was the assistant coach with the Surrey Eagles when that squad was in the Fred Page Cup finals. And the team at the other end of the rink during that series? The Vernon Vipers, a club that has made 19 trips to the championship and have never been swept. Wolff and the Eagles were successful in 2005 and the coach is hoping for a repeat with the Express, hopefully as early as Tuesday night. On Monday, Vernon opened the scoring midway through the first period, when Dylan Chanter buried a pass from Tyler Povelofski past Coquitlam goalie G o rd i e D e f i e l . Th e 1,163 fans at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex were further silenced early in the second period when Viper forward Liam Coughlin made it 2-0 on the power play. But the Express were

“It’s far from over. We know Vernon is not going to go away... They are desperate now.” Barry Wolff not ready to concede the game. Brendan Lamont got Coquitlam on the scoreboard midway through the second off a pass from Zach Hodder that

made it 2-1. Rosenthal was given the first-star of the game for tying the game and his overtime heroics, while Lamont was named second star for his efforts and his goal in the second. Vernon Vipers goalie Au s t i n S m i t h wa s named third star of the game. • Game 4 of the Fred Page Cup finals were scheduled to take place Tuesday night at 7 p.m. after The Tri-City News’ deadline.

Design for a nursery or child’s room has come a long way since blue for boys and pink for girls.

Decor for the younger set By Kerry Vital If you’re interior designinclined, one of the fun parts of raising a child can be decorating their room, whether it’s designing their nursery or re-decorating a room to suit an older kid who has outgrown their babyish tastes. However, if trendy home decor isn’t high on your priority list, it can be hard to know where to start. “You want timeless pieces that can grow with the child,”

The homeowner had a specific style in mind when renovating his home, and Best Builders, in collaboration with Sarah Gallop Design Inc., was able to give him that with retro touches such as contrasting white and dark flat crown cabinetry. Ema Peter photo

Reviving the 70s with the help of Best Builders Best Builders worked with Sarah Gallop Design Inc. to create a modernized home while still keeping the 70s style the owner wanted. By Kerry Vital Old is new again with Best Builders’ 70s-style project that has more than a touch of retro flair. In partnership with Sarah Gallop Design Inc., Best Builders was able to give the homeowners exactly what they were looking for while sticking to budget and bringing everything in on time. “The homeowner had a specific style in mind,” says Best

Builders owner Todd Best. “It really turned out amazing.” Best notes that the original home was very closed off, with individual rooms instead of open space. He and his team opened up the entire main floor to make it more useable for the entire family. “Now, there’s nowhere in the house that you can’t hear ‘time for dinner!’” Best says. “It’s a complete transformation.” The outdoor space is one of the most spectacular things about the new home, and Best is very proud of it. “The outdoor turf soccer field is built to the same specifications as the (Vancouver) Whitecaps field,” he says. That field can also be turned into a volleyball court by folding away the nets. There is also an outdoor fire pit and new tiered sun deck, among other features. “You never have to leave the house,” says Best, adding that

the homeowner’s children come home with their friends every day and spend hours playing outside. Of course, that’s only when their parents aren’t using it themselves. There is now 2,100 square feet of outdoor living space for the family to enjoy. “We were constantly working with the homeowners,” says Best. “Our guys would be talking to them and giving them new ideas all the time.” Other outdoor additions included new fencing, a new gate and a trellis. The homeowners wanted to keep the 1970s look of the exterior, so Best and his team removed the old cladding, planed it and re-installed it. The aim was to respect the existing

Newly renovated home includes professional-quality soccer pitch in yard “ from page. 1 architecture while making it more functional and modern for the family. “Outside, there’s nothing spectacular about it,” Best says. “They wanted it to look like the other homes on the street, but inside it’s refined.” They kept the old fireplace and used matching bricks to patch where the new beams tie in, and kept many of the interior features such as the cedar panelling. “All of the furniture was custom-built in California,” says Best. New millwork was

added, including shoe storage in an entry pony wall for extra convenience and flat crown cabinetry that utilizes contrasting white and dark finishes. The master bedroom was moved downstairs and a spa-like ensuite was added, and the kitchen was moved from the centre of the home to the rear wall to create a great room-kitchen combination. A live edge wood bar top is included on the kitchen island for an extra touch of vintage style. The redesigned family room is now the favoured place for the whole family to spend time together, whether it’s doing homework or watching a movie by the fire. “Family comes first to the homeowner,” says Best. “It’s been a very well-received project.” The home has been named a finalist in three categories at the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association Ovation Awards, for Best Kitchen and Greatroom Renovation, Best Renovation: $300,000 to $499,999 and Best Outdoor Living Space: New or Renovated. The winners will be named on April 26. “We have a very strong team,” says Best. “We guarantee quality and take great pride in our finishing.”

The soccer pitch was built to the same specifications as the Vancouver Whitecaps field, above, while the exterior, far left, was rebuilt to fit in with the surrounding neighbourhood. Cedar panelling, left, was retained as another 70s-style feature. Ema Peter photos

Adding to your living space with a gazebo By Kerry Vital Backyard living can be easy with a gazebo that fits your style and space. Not only will it provide shelter, it can also add a touch of style to your yard. “A gazebo really does add to your life,” says Donna Lillejord of Alfresco Backyard Lifestyles. “You can use your yard all year round.” A gazebo can be called by many names, including pergola or pavilion, but it’s generally recognized as being a structure with a roof that is open on all sides used to give you protection from the elements. While Lillejord says that there’s always a solution for any type of situation when it comes to installing a gazebo, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. “How much space do you have?” she asks. “You don’t want to canopy your entire backyard.” She also tells homeowners to look at what the ground below the gazebo is made of. “You want to make sure the structure is solid,” she says. “If it’s concrete, for example, you can drill down into it like a fence and anchor it there. You want it bolted to something secure.” Lillejord also recommends thinking about what your personal style is. “From a beauty point of view, you want to make sure it matches your

house and complements your yard,” she says. As in many home renovations, you get what you pay for when it comes to gazebos. “Hollow aluminum tends to crack or dent,” says Lillejord. “The more solid it is, the better it will look later. You want it to have longevity; it’s a more permanent structure.” Another thing to keep in mind is the wind velocity in your backyard, says Lillejord. While it may not be one of the first things you think of when building a gazebo, it can make a big difference when it comes to how secure a structure is. To enhance your backyard living experience and continue spending time outdoors in the cooler months, Lillejord suggests installing a fire pit in the gazebo. “It’s like adding another room to your house,” she says. “You basically extend your house on a lower budget basis. It dramatically adds to the amount of time you can spend outdoors.” Gazebos are available in a range of styles, from Caribbean-style tiki huts to dramatic Whistler-style timber-frames. If you’re not adept at construction, pre-packaged kits can often be purchased that will have everything you need.

Installing a gazebo will extend your living space outdoors and allow you to spend more time outside, even when the weather is less than optimal. Photos submitted by Alfresco Backyard Lifestyles

Starting anew with a fresh coat of paint for 2014 By Kerry Vital

Paint is one of the easiest ways to freshen up your space, and can make for some endlessly creative possibilities. A new coat of paint will go a long way towards transforming your home. “The spectrum of colours for the coming year continues to reflect people’s desire to disconnect from today’s complex world and return to the beauty of nature and art,” says Mylene Gevry, brand director for Sico paint. Continuing that natural trend, yellow is expected to be this year’s hottest colour. This year’s “stand out colour can best be described as a butter cream yellow, a warm pastel shade that has a fullness to it, but is still light enough to act as a neutral,” says Alison Goldman, brand manager for CIL paint. CIL has released a new colour called Creamy this year, which takes all of those descriptors into account.

“It’s a soft buttery colour that emits a feeling of calm, tranquility and renewal,” says Goldman. CIL recommends pairing it with citrus colours for a pop of spring in the home. “Overall, the 2014 colour palette demonstrates our growing desire for life balance,” says Gevry. “As a result, we will see increased use of rich colour combinations, innovative patterns and distinct lines throughout the year.” “People are starting to let out their collective breath and are ready for new beginnings, which is translating into a movement towards fresh and creative colours,” says Martin Tustin-Fuchs, brand manager for Dulux paint. “As a result, we’ll see novel shades and unexpected combinations of colours in the year ahead in all areas of home decor.” He sees vibrant colours and new energy arriving in home decor. “Reds are more tangy, oranges are more

expressive, greens are more jewelled and blues are more tropical,” says Tustin-Fuchs. Popular reds are expected to include vibrant reds with orange undertones, while oranges are moving towards terra-cotta and spice hues, according to Dulux. Blue itself will tend towards the ocean colours, and green will build off emerald and teal. Purple will move in two directions; the first will trend towards red-hued purples, and the other towards blue-purple tones. Paint takes its cue from fashion, and this will be especially evident this year. “Our 2014 colour palette creates a contemporary and edited view of modern society, and on the other, it embraces an artisan past, influenced by the historical patterns of brocades, damasks and toile, and our continued appreciation for anything hand-crafted,” says Gevry.

Animals never go out of style when it comes to nursery decor such as triangles, circles and plus signs are all popular right now. “People are introducing metallics,” says De’Ath. “The easiest way is through a wall decal, lamps or other light fixtures.” Like many other rooms, grey is a big colour for nurseries and kid’s bedrooms for 2014. “It’s popular in all tones,” says De’Ath. Easy additions to spice up a nursery or children’s room include personalized decor such as wooden letters spelling out their name. “Kids love to see their names,” says De’Ath. Keeping things organized, especially when there’s a baby around, is extremely important. Having everything to hand with wall hooks

“ from page.1 says Jacqueline De’Ath, owner and designer at Homeworks Etc. Designs, noting the example of a changing table that converts to a dresser once the child is no longer in diapers. Many cribs will convert into a toddler bed, and a well-chosen room theme can continue to be appropriate for many years. “I see a lot of repurposing furniture,” says De’Ath. “You can take an end table and make it into a nightstand. Paint it a bright colour to add a pop to the room.” Textiles such as sheets and pillows are another way to add interest to a room. Prints

Animals are still a popular theme for nurseries and children’s bedrooms, no matter the gender. Making sure the room is functional on top of being cute and comfortable is important. Photos submitted by Homeworks Etc. Designs

and other storage solutions can save you valuable seconds. As for themes, popular ones might be familiar to many of us. “Animals are always a classic for nurseries,” says De’Ath. “They never go out of style.” Other popular themes for a baby or older child’s room right now include pirates, dinosaurs, flowers and the ever-classic princesses. Making a room themed can be as easy as finding the perfect decal to add to a wall. “Wall decals are almost replacing wallpaper right now,” says De’Ath. “They’re not as permanent, so they can be removed easily.” She also notes that blackboards are popular additions to bedrooms right now. “You can write little notes and messages to your kid,” De’Ath says. “Kids love notes, and it encourages play in a room.” Her number one tip for parents? “Keep it simple,” she says. “You should also know your style. Is it modern, classic, vintage? You need to know what you’re looking for.” She also recommends making sure the room is functional by ensuring that it has space for sleeping, playing and whatever else the child will use it for. Decorating a nursery or children’s room has come a long way in the past few decades; you’re no longer relegated to blue for boys and pink for girls. Now, you can decorate that room just as you would decorate your own; suiting the occupant’s taste and style.
