Coquitlam and New Westminster agree on a bridge connection, but it doesn’t involve one named Bailey. The two communities do remain at odds about replacing the Bailey bridge connecting Braid Street in New West to United Boulevard in Coquitlam. New Westminster is about to install a one-lane temporary replacement while Coquitlam wants a two-lane connection. What Coquitlam does agree with New Westminster about is the need for the South Fraser Perimeter Road to connect directly to the Port Mann Bridge. New West councillors have been making the rounds of municipal councils seeking support for replacing the Pattullo Bridge with a four-laned, tolled structure. It was Coun. Chuck Puchmayr’s turn to appear before Coquitlam council on Monday, although that city has already determined it supports a tolled, six-lane structure. But Puchmayr also talked to them about getting the province to connect the new South Fraser Perimeter Road directly to the Port Mann Bridge. Please see CITY, A10

Aging out, and left on their own Study supports argument that continuing support after 19 delivers real benefits to those in care Mario Bartel
Ivery Castilloux was teetering on the brink. He’d just turned 19 and had no place to go. A ward of the province who’d lived in 10 foster homes through his childhood, Castilloux was given a cheque by his support worker for $100 and told to go boldly forth into adulthood. He thought he needed to be perfect. He thought he had to map out every step of his future life and ambitions. Because if he didn’t he’d have nowhere to fall back. It was, said Castilloux, overwhelming. “I was scared of what would happen next,” said Castilloux. “Everything was going downward.” In search of some assistance and encouragement, Castilloux returned to Aunt Leah’s Place, a New Westminsterbased organization that provides support to young people in care as they transition to the next stage of their lives. He’d been involved with Aunt Leah’s Support Link program which provides supportive housing for young people aged 15-18 as they prepare for life on their own. The social workers there

A counsellor gave advice to the parents who arrived to greet their children on how to keep calm before they disembarked from the bus. “The last thing we wanted to see, and being a parent I can understand it, is your first inclination is to run up to the bus and say ‘are you OK,’ and traumatize the child,” said Grant. “It was a very smooth pickup.” In a letter to all of the school’s parents, principal Patty Farris advised them to shelter their children from media coverage and to not raise the topic unless their kids brought it up. “For children that see images of an event like that, see it over and over again, it can re-traumatize them,” said Grant. “Parents will want to know what happened, but it’s not always a good idea for children to see events like this on the news, particularly if they were close to the event.” To discuss it without them bringing it up, she said, could be more traumatic to the child than the actual incident. “Right now we’re thinking the children are going to be OK, but having said that the school is going to watch closely and we’ll be there if they need further response,” said Grant.

WHAT IS THE HRA ABOUT? Constructed in 1923, the house would be part of a larger 30-unit townhouse development. The HRA would ensure the long-term legal protection of the house and include the restoration plan (including its order and timing) for the exterior of the house. It would also allow habitable space on the ground floor, which is typically not permitted in Queensborough. The HRA and the Heritage Designation bylaws would not apply to the remainder of the property but are a condition of the overall rezoning project being considered by City Council. The Heritage Designation Bylaw would also provide long-term legal protection of the house. HOW DO I GET MORE INFORMATION?

Exam supervision and report cards are the biggest concerns for the New Westminster school district if a province-wide teachers strike goes ahead. Membership of the B.C. Teachers Federation voted 86 per cent in favour of a strike earlier this week. If they act on it it will be an escalation from the rotating strikes the union has been conducting the last three weeks, the final round of which hit New Westminster schools on Wednesday. The union must give 72 hours strike notice, weekends not included. Superintendent/CEO John Gaiptman said the district is

Contribute to charities wisely It’s the season for fundraising. Every weekend it seems there is some sort of walk, run, bicycle ride, or obstacle course event to raise money for worthy causes like cancer research, sending kids to summer camp, diabetes. The list goes on. Often participants have to raise a certain amount of pledges to enter the event. They spend countless hours soliciting family and friends to help out, organize their own fundraisers such as pub crawls, garage sales, car washes, and hot dog sales. It’s a symbiotic relationship that seems to leave everyone smiling, and satisfied that they’ve done some good and had a little fun along the way. But is it worth it? Since 2009 MoneySense magazine has graded the performance of Canada’s 100 biggest charities to determine whether money raised to support their causes actually reaches its intended benefactor. Last year those charities raised $4.5 billion. Of that, $3.4 billion went to programs the charities supported. The rest, presumably, was the cost of doing business, paying salaries, promotion, and staging events. Many performed admirably. Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart Charities, for instance, funnelled 88 per cent of its spending to programs that support children’s participation in minor sports. The Terry Fox Foundation ploughed 82.4 per cent of its money into cancer programs. Others didn’t fare as well, spending half or more of donated funds just to raise those funds. (A great website to visit is www. charityintelligence.ca) So before signing that pledge form or lacing up those sneakers, it pays to enquire where exactly your money is going.

Appreciation for running grows, slowly This will come as no surprise to anyone who has ever met me, but I am not a runner. Never have been. In fact, I’ve always been of the mind that unless you are playing a sport that requires it, or are running away from something—a bear, a knife-wielding maniac, an ex-wife, whatever—then it’s just more prudent to walk. I mean, why waste energy, right? I see the benefit of running, sure. I have friends who love it. It’s an escape, they insist. It’s just nice to get outside, they say. It’s good for you. I don’t doubt any of those claims. And I have, through the years, made attempts—as feeble as they may be—to become a runner myself. But whatever the reason—a lack of focus, a lack of energy, something good on TV—I have always quit before I got into any kind of real routine. But I wish I liked it more. I wish I was good at it, because for whatever reason, I am fascinated by those who run. Some of my favourite stories—
Nick Greenizan and most interesting interviews— have been with runners, be they of the track-and-field variety, or ultra-marathoners like Ferg Hawke, who runs distances that simply make me shake my head. In fact, a story I wrote on Hawke, back when I first started at the Peace Arch News, is among my most memorable. He had just returned home from the Badwater Ultramarathon—a 135-mile run through California’s scorching hot, and aptly named, Death Valley—and we were sitting in his backyard. To our right was a glassed-in room in the middle of which sat a treadmill, which itself was surrounded by four space heaters, each designed to blast Hawke with hot air as he trained, in an attempt to replicate the Badwater

conditions. Lying in front of us was a box of shoes, many with melted soles—Death Valley asphalt gets hot after all. There were also a few pairs with the toes cut off because, as Hawke explained to me, by the last few miles of the run, your feet are so swollen that they no longer fit in your shoes. It was at that moment that I realized maybe running was not for me. It was also at that moment that I wondered if I was sitting on the patio of a crazy person, but the feeling soon waned. Since then, I’ve written plenty of stories about runners. The latest was about the Sandcastle City Classic 10K race, won by Kenyan Solomon Rotich. He ran 10 km in just over 31 minutes. As a non-runner, the obvious joke, of course, is to point out that sometimes it takes me that long to drive 10 km. But that’s not entirely true. Sometimes it takes me that long just to find my keys. But it’s because of all these stories that I decided this week to
give running one last try. If nothing else, it’ll get me off the couch for awhile, I figured. The fresh air will be nice, I insisted. Maybe I’ll lose a couple pounds. Somewhere, I’d heard all that before. So, I laced up my shoes, turned on my iPod and headed out on a nice, easy four-km loop around my neighbourhood. It wasn’t a particularly difficult route—it starts downhill, which helps—and I found myself chugging along just fine for a kilometre or two. And then a strange thing happened. I didn’t exactly hate it. I didn’t love it, mind you. I didn’t race home and sign up for a 10K run. And I didn’t dig through the hall closet and start cutting off the toes of all my shoes. But I hated it less. Maybe that’s a start. Nick Greenizan is the sports reporter at the Peace Arch News.

Moody Park Off Leash Dog Area Thursday, June 16, 2014 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm Century House, 680 Eighth Street The City is seeking advice to help inform on the design, location and amenities for an off-leash dog area in Moody Park. If you are a local resident (both dog owners and non-dog owners), group who uses the park actively or someone who just enjoys sitting and relaxing in the park, we want to hear from you! Come on out and let us know your thoughts on: • Where in the park it should be located • Whether it should be a fenced or non-fenced area • The hours of operation • Ground material For more information, please call 604-527-4567.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: A proposal has been submitted to rezone 41 and 175 Duncan Street (outlined in bold in map) from Heavy Industrial Districts (M-2) to Comprehensive Development Districts (Duncan Street Townhouse) (CD-42), Comprehensive Development Districts (Duncan Street Apartment) (CD-43), Heavy Industrial Districts (M-2) and Park Districts(P-10) in order to develop 48 townhouse units, 425 apartment units, relocate the existing dyke to the perimeter of the site and construct a section of the perimeter trail on the dyke.
ILLEGAL DUMPING Each month, many property owners, including the City, are faced with the high cost and burden of properly disposing of items that have been illegally dumped on unsuspecting property owners or on City property. If you are unsure of how to dispose of unwanted items such as old furniture, electronic devices and other household items, call Engineering Operations at 604-526-4691 and they can offer several ideas for proper disposal, including arranging a Special Pick Up Service for a small fee. There are also recycling centres that will take used TVs, computers and other electronic devices for free. If the items are usable, there are a number of charity organizations that will arrange a pick up for you. Please see the City’s website at www.newwestcity.ca under the garbage and recycling pages for more information. For property owners who fail to dispose of discarded items from their property in a timely fashion, even if such items have been illegally dumped, the Unsightly Premise Bylaw No. 5969, 1991, may be enforced, resulting in fines and other fees. Individuals caught illegally dumping items may be faced with a fine of $200 and/or other enforcement action. If you observe someone illegally dumping on City or private property, obtain as much information as possible, such as a description and licence plate number, and call the Bylaw Department at 604-527-4657.

The BC NDP is calling on the provincial government to ban flavoured tobacco products. “There’s absolutely no reason to wait for the federal government to act. It’s a very real problem and the province needs to act now,” said NDP Health Critic and New Westminster MLA Judy Darcy, speaking at a press conference Tuesday. According to the Canadian Cancer Society, the introduction of fruit and candy-flavoured cigarillos has led to a significant increase in youth using tobacco products. Alberta has banned the products although it has yet to be implemented. Legislation to ban them has also been introduced in Manitoba and Ontario. “Other provinces have moved on this
It looked like a gum pack and said it was to be used for legal smoking herbs and not for tobacco use. Darcy is not buying the manufacturer’s statement.
She believes its sole purpose is to help the user disguise tobacco. Deception of parents and authority is a big motivation for youth to purchase the products, she added.
Individual cigarettes or cigarillos are made to look like eyeliner or a sharpie. They also smell nicer than cigarettes and go down easier. see nation-wide, a10

and B.C. should too,” said Darcy. Darcy said 30,000 young people start smoking every year in B.C. While the percentage of youths smoking has dropped dramatically in recent decades, it has remained steady at 14.5 per cent over the last few years, she said. One reason, she argues, is because of flavoured tobacco products. She cited a Canadian Cancer Society survey
showing that 53 per cent of the province’s youth who smoked in the last 30 days used flavoured tobacco products. “There is an aggressive marketing strategy underway to target youth with these products,” said Darcy. Some of the smaller products have none of the blatant warnings required on cigarette cases because they are sold individually. “They’re equally as toxic because they’re

hey New Westminster, we’re full of beans...

New West council maintains the current connection to Highway 1 via the 176th Street overpass takes truckers headed to the Tri-Cities area too far out of their way. They end up using the Pattullo Bridge to avoid the Port Mann’s tolls. New West maintains that has added congestion to local streets, particularly Brunette Avenue. Puchmayr said that traffic continues into Coquitlam as Brunette moves into the Mallairdville neighbourhood. “Their community is really affected by the lack of that

infrastructure,” Puchmayr told New West council later Monday. “We’re polarized on certain issues, especially on talking about the Bailey bridge, but this is clearly an issue that resonated.” So council approved a motion from Puchmayr made at the urging of a Coquitlam councillor. It formally requests Coquitlam support New West’s stance on a SFPR connection, and to pass this to the province. The rest of council agreed except Coun. Betty McIntosh. She said the provincial Transportation Ministry
determined long ago the grade is too steep for the connection. “Are we flogging a dead horse here or what?” said McIntosh. But Puchmayr said a presentation made at the Coquitlam headquarters of TReO, the crown corporation responsible for the Highway 1/ Port Mann expansion project, showed three options for the connection. They ranged in cost from $250 million to $400 million. “We’ve proven that wrong,” said Puchmayr of the province’s position. “These are doable options.”

Ride a chance to reflect 240 km over two days Mario Bartel
The Brine Brigade is a lot smaller than the first time they participated in the Ride to Conquer Cancer. But it’s the spirit of one of their departed members that fuels the group’s annual resolve to ride 240 kilometres over two
days even though most of them aren’t regular cyclists. They’ll be at the start line again this Saturday. Cameron Brine’s father, David, had just been diagnosed with brain cancer when the Brigade formed to ride in the inaugural Ride to Conquer Cancer six years ago. The prognosis was grim but that didn’t deter David from
climbing onto a bike himself and leading the 40-strong contingent of family, friends and supporters across the finish line in Seattle. “It was pretty emotional,” recalls Cameron, who pedalled the route on a borrowed bike. “It was something I’ll never forget, that he was able to see the level of support.” Please see ‘IT’S A SPECIAL’, A12

WHAT’S FRESH AT THE PANTRY? Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl
New Democrat health critic and New Westminster MLA Judy Darcy has called for a summary of a Fraser Health review to be made public. Her demand comes after Fraser Health chairman Wynne Powell said last week the findings were too complex for a public release to be helpful. “Fraser Health patients, their families, and staff on the front lines of health care deserve to know the findings of the Fraser
Health Authority review and stated that they have absolutely to learn just how these findings no intention of releasing the are going to improve health care report.” and patient experiences Darcy noted the review in the region,” said was done because of Darcy, a former head of a prolonged period of the Hospital Employees chaos in the system with Union, in a news release. increasing patient wait “It’s concerning to learn times in emergency that contrary to what rooms, inadequate DARCY the public believed, both staffing levels and the health minister and unacceptable patient the new leadership of the Fraser discharges. firstname.lastname@example.org Health Authority have now

The group raised nearly $200,000 for cancer research from fundraisers like poker tournaments, pub nights, hot dog sales and donations. Cameron’s dad, a former B.C. Supreme Court judge in New Westminster, died a few months later. When it came time to register for the next ride, Cameron, 38, didn’t hesitate to sign on, unfold the group’s custom red jerseys and blow the dust off his bike. He’s been doing it every year since. And while family commitments, new interests
and other causes have dwindled the brigade over the years, their dedication is unbowed. Cameron’s aunt, Janet, who participated in that first ride while battling breast cancer, continues her fight with the disease. She’s also had to overcome the loss of her own daughter, Eva Markvoort, to cystic fibrosis in 2010. During the ride, Cameron and the other riders often find themselves sharing their stories of how cancer has touched their lives. “It doesn’t seem to go away,” he says of the disease. But, most importantly,
Cameron says he uses the long ride to reflect on his memories of his dad. “When you’re riding, you spend a lot of time in your own thoughts,” he says.

Our friends to the south don’t have access to such awesomeness. But on the flip side, it’s only available on the base model. Aside from the 6-speed manual, Subaru offers their version of a Continuously Variable Transmission, aka the Lineartronic CVT. While some might not be a fan of this type of transmission, don’t knock it until you try it. Subaru does an excellent job with the gear simulations and I didn’t feel the drone of the system under hard acceleration, even with the 4-cylinder. While I’d pick a manual any day, the CVT is darn good. So is the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, a standard feature on all Legacy trims.

An electrifying and smart choice
Custom Made Foot Orthotics
By Zack Spencer
Which cars on the market today don’t I like? It’s a question I’m often asked and one I struggle to answer. Today’s automobiles are made so well, there are no real turkeys. But, and there is always a “but,” there are certainly cars I like more than others and some I prefer not to drive. The regular Smart ForTwo is one of them. The small dimensions are perfect as a city runabout but the lethargic gasoline engine and very choppy automatic transmission make

Inside My nine-year-old son Charlie really wanted to go for a ride, not because it’s electric but because he had never been in a Smart Car before and wondered what the fuss was about. Since there are only two seats, he could place his seat back as far as he liked and had vast amounts of leg room. He also commented on the large cargo shelf behind the two front seats for storage.

This moves the car along quickly, but the throttle has been calibrated for smooth acceleration, helping the driver gain the best efficiency. I should point out that the high centre of gravity, short wheelbase and slightly choppy ride all combine to make a less than connected car in the corners, so be aware that this car can accelerate quickly but it will not corner quickly.

Real homes for real people with MOSAIC’s York By Kerry Vital
Langley’s Willoughby neighbourhood has been growing over the past year, and offering a wide range of homes for local buyers. However, MOSAIC Homes is bringing something a bit different to the market with York, which is giving first-time buyers a chance to dip their toe into the home-owning waters with an accessible price point that doesn’t sacrifice any of the quality that MOSAIC is known for.
“It’s very rewarding to see someone buy their first home,” says MOSAIC’S Geoff Duyker. “People are taking their first step onto the market.” MOSAIC has introduced a new floorplan at York, called the Grouse plan and featuring two bedrooms and just over 1,000 square feet. “These are the most affordable homes compared to other townhomes on the market,” says Duyker. There are several other two-bedroom plans, as well as three-
NEW HOME DEVELOPMENT
bedroom plans. “There are a lot of options in this area for people buying a townhome,” says Duyker. “It’s exciting for us to be the one that people are choosing.” As evidence of this, MOSAIC opened York for sale last weekend, and already more than half of the first release of homes have been sold. In fact, Duyker notes that there were people sleeping outside the Home Store overnight the night before in order to be first in line to see the three model homes. “There is beautiful street appeal,” says Duyker. “We here at MOSAIC love design and love architecture.” That’s also proven inside, with oversized bay windows, curved archways in most homes and nine-foot ceilings on the main living level. “We call it ‘Country Modern’,” says Duyker. “It’s a more heritage-style form that’s been made contemporary. It just feels different than any other home on the market.” Homes at York start at $259,900. For more information, www.mosaichomes.com/york, stop by the Home Store on 207A off 84th in Langley, or call 604-882-6758.
Ledingham McAllister’s Waterscapes includes high-rise tower Skye at Waterscapes and The Herons at Waterscapes, a collection of four-storey low-rise buildings. Luxury is evident everywhere in the development, including the kitchen, top right, living area, bottom right, and The Cascade Club, right.
Resort-style living at Waterscapes By Kerry Vital
Ledingham McAllister brings luxury to Kelowna’s waterfront with Waterscapes, a master-planned community inspired by the sparkling lake and relaxing atmosphere. “It feels like a resort community,” says Manuela Mirecki, senior vice-president of marketing and design for Ledingham McAllister. “The response has been really, really good.” Waterscapes offers a range of home styles,
including high-rise residences at Skye and townhomes and low-rise homes at The Herons. Among the features in the homes are wood-grain shaker cabinetry in the kitchens and soaker tubs in the ensuite bathrooms. Homeowners at Waterscapes have exclusive access to The Cascade Club, which holds a fully equipped fitness centre, billiards lounge, guest suites, library and outdoor kitchen, among many other amenities. “The Cascade Club is literally your own private country club,” says Mirecki. “It’s been in constant use since it opened.” If you venture off the property, Waterscapes is just a short walk away from shopping dining and nightlife in Kelowna. “Living at Waterscapes offers you the whole life experience,” says Mirecki. “There is nothing like this anywhere else.” On June 21 and 22 between 12 and 6 p.m.,
Ledingham McAllister is hosting a blowout sales event for the remaining homes at Waterscapes, and will offer spectacular deals. “For the penthouse (at Skye), we will be reducing the price by up to $150,000, and two-bedroom-and-den homes by up to $60,000,” says Mirecki. In The Herons, Ledingham McAllister will be offering discounts of up to $80,000 on the townhomes and up to $45,000 on the two-bedroom-andden homes. “Ledingham McAllister has been in business for 109 years,” Mirecki says. “There’s no one else in Western Canada who can offer that level of experience.” For more information, visit www.ledmac. com/waterscapes, call 1-250-763-8313 or stop by the sales centre at Sky Tower, PH3, 1075 Sunset Drive, Kelowna, open daily (except Fridays) between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m.
