Coquitlam home to first Club 16

New Trevor Linden fitness centre skates in era of low-cost membership John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com B.C.’s favourite Sun will soon have some competition in the fitness game, as former Vancouver Canuck captain Trevor Linden unveiled plans Wednesday to start up a low-cost fitness centre in Coquitlam come January. The 20,000-square-foot facility, which will boast $15 membership prices, is set to open up at Eagleridge Place (2635 Barnet Hwy.) under the name Club 16 — Trevor Linden Fitness. The fact that he’s entering the same industry as revered Phoenix Suns NBA point guard and Victoria native Steve Nash isn’t lost on Linden, though he feels there’s enough room in the market for both companies to exist. “It certainly was something I thought about. Steve’s a good friend, a guy I like a lot and someone who I have a lot of respect for,” Linden said in an interview with The NOW Wednesday. “We are in the same business, but I don’t think we’re directly competing because I think we offer two different products. It’s like anything out there — I’m looking out my window and I see a Blenz and a Starbucks. There’s lots of different options and choices out there for people.” Linden’s newest foray into business represents a partnership between the ex-Canuck and She’s Fit franchise owner Chuck Lawson, a 23-year veteran of the fitness industry who heads up 10 women’s-only facilities in Metro Vancouver. To that end, each Club 16 location will contain a separate She’s Fit outlet for women’s-only training. Linden admitted that he’s long been tentative to lend his name to much in the way of business opportunities. After hearing about Lawson’s pitch through a mutual friend five months

Former Canuck Trevor Linden is opening his first gym in Coquitlam. ago, Linden thought it would be an open and shut case of thanks, but no thanks. “I kind of thought OK, we’ll meet for an hour and I’ll do it like I normally do — listen, hear it out and

send him an e-mail and say ‘Thanks but no thanks,’” Linden said. “But after we got to talking, it really seemed to make sense to me — it fit and it worked.” “That first meeting we scheduled an

hour to sit down and talk, and close to three hours later, we were saying goodbye to each other,” Lawson added. “I remember driving away and I called my wife and said, ‘You’re not going to believe this, but this might have a chance of actually happening.’ When I got it done, you had to pinch me a bit and ask, ‘Is this for real?’” Their location search turned to the Tri-Cities, he said, specifically the old Eagle Ridge Cinemas. “Coquitlam has a growing population with a lot of young families, and I think it’s a bit devoid of fitness facilities. We found a fantastic location on the Barnet Highway and kind of thought this is a good place to start,” said Linden. “It’s a great, growing area. When you really look around there, in my opinion, it’s really underserved,” said Lawson. Part of the appeal of the pair’s venture is the low price point at which memberships are being offered. Gym costs usually start at roughly $30 monthly. But at half that price, Linden and Lawson are focusing on the essentials: free weights, strengthening machines, circuit training and more than 100 cardio machines. “As much as you’d like to offer all these different types of things, you have to be realistic,” Lawson said. “The more you add to your business, the more complicated your business becomes, and it makes it harder to do your business well. Simplicity allows you to do what you do, and do it well.” Above and beyond the weights and machines, the facility will also contain four suntanning studios, meal planning tips, 260 parking spaces and a retail shop offering Trevor Lindenbranded fitness apparel. A pre-registration membership booth will be set up at Coquitlam Centre as of Oct. 4. For information, see www.trevorlindenfitness.com.

Province calls for public inquiry into Pickton Jonathan Fowlie editorial@thenownews.com

There will be a full public inquiry into the police investigation into serial killer Robert “Willie” Pickton, British Columbia’s Attorney General Mike de Jong announced Thursday after a cabinet meeting in Victoria. The inquiry will fall under the public inquiry act, but a commissioner and terms of reference are not available yet, said de Jong. He said answers are needed regard-

ing mistakes made during the police investigation of the missing women cases. Calls for an independent review have increased since Vancouver police Deputy Chief Doug LePard released a 408-page review of the case in late August. LePard’s report concluded that investigators had compelling evidence pointing to the Port Coquitlam pig farmer by August 1999 — 2.5 years before his arrest. Over that period, 14 women went missing; their DNA would later

be found at Pickton’s pig farm on Dominion Avenue. Pickton was charged with murdering 26 women, and convicted on six of those counts in 2007. The DNA of 33 women, mostly sex workers and drug addicts from Vancouver’s drug- and violenceplagued Downtown Eastside were found on his farm. LePard has said an independent review could lead to significant and beneficial changes to policing in the province. Families of some of the victims have said they do not want the B.C.

government to set the terms of reference for any investigation and want an independent and respected person to lead the inquiry. First Nations groups have said they want to participate, and families have said social and aboriginal agencies in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside should also play a role. The B.C. government has said it will consider LePard’s report, a review by the RCMP in 2002 and recommendations from ministry staff as part of any inquiry. — Postmedia Network

Dr. Matthew S. Ng

PoCo boasts lowest garbage rate  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

would also be the cheapest garbage rate in Metro Vancouver.” This year in Port Coquitlam, residents are paying a total of $176.30 for pickup of garbage, green waste and recycling in 240litre bins. The same services cost Port Moody residents $402. Meanwhile, the 2010 price is set at $303.82 in New Westminster and $211 in Vancouver. While other municipalities will likely raise fees next year due to the tipping fee increase, PoCo’s average 2011 solid waste levy could be the

same as or less than 2010 levels, according to a staff report. “I think people will be happy about it,” Moore said. “But it’s because of their hard work that we’re able to maintain those rates.” This year, the city implemented changes to its solid waste program by expanding acceptable kitchen scraps and moving to alternate-week collection. Since then, the city has saved $47,727 in landfill costs. “We’re at 63-per-cent diversion rate for this year, which is leading Metro Vancouver for sure and I would suspect all of B.C.,” Moore said. “It would be one of the top ones,

in my knowledge, in all of Canada.” Although many residents initially expressed concerns about the modified solid waste program, Moore said the city hasn’t received many comments lately. “The people that I chat with have gotten used to the system. I know in our house, we’re going to go to a smaller bin,” he said. “I’ll be lucky if I put my garbage bin out once a month. If you think about everything that can go into recycling and everything that can go into the green bin, there’s really not much left over.”

Society receives $3,700 for Ioco festival Port Moody’s Ioco Ghost Town Days Festival received close to $4,000 in federal funds last week. Announced by Port Moody-Westwood-Port Coquitlam MP James Moore on Sept. 1, the $3,700 funding boost will assist the Port Moody Heritage Society in staging the ninth annual instalment of the festival, which is slated from Sept. 26 to Oct. 3. Like in years past, this year’s festival will

celebrate people and events from the past while including historical re-enactments by 28 local musicians, artisans, and heritage performers. “We are grateful to Canadian Heritage for supporting our ninth annual Ioco Ghost Town Days Festival,” said heritage society president Wayne Beggs. “These funds help create a fun and engaging heritage event that celebrates the past heritage and traditions of Ioco town.”

A Terasen employee checks the gas line, after a lightning strike blew off the meter. The bolt hit the chimney on the house’s roof (right), which scattered bricks all over the yard.

Lightning strikes Coquitlam home Stories by John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

Whether it was Mother Nature or human error, two separate accidents shut off natural gas for more than a dozen homes in Coquitlam Wednesday. The first incident took place in the area near Mason Avenue and Coast Meridian Road, where a construction accident led to a gas pipe rupture, according to Coquitlam Fire and Rescue Chief Tony

Delmonico. Terasen spokesperson Marcus Wong said the incident was first reported to the company shortly after 5 p.m. Eleven homes were affected and without natural gas until about midnight. “Normally what happens in gas incidents such as this is we send our crews out to, first of all, make sure the area is safe both for residents and for our crews. And then we turn the gas off and then we proceed with repairs,” he said. The second incident happened at

around 7 p.m. when lightning struck the chimney of a Coquitlam home located on Samuels Court. The strike sent bricks flying down onto the gas meter below. “When our crew attended, the resident luckily had shut off the gas,” Delmonico said. He added that no injuries were reported as a result of the incident. Wong said the necessary repairs were expected to be completed at some point on Thursday, after NOW deadlines.

Opinion

Paramedic training important Re: “Paramedics struggle to keep up with growing demands,” special section, Friday, Sept. 3. While CUPE 873 contends that there is a lack of funding for ambulance service, the fact is that B.C. Ambulance Service’s (BCAS) budget has risen 88 per cent the past decade to $279 million in 201011. Additionally, the number of full- and part-time paramedics employed by BCAS has grown by 12 per cent to 3,639 over the past six years. Regarding service demand, BCAS’s To The emergency and non-emergency prehospital call volumes have remained stable since 2006-07 and inter-facility transfer calls have decreased 25 per cent throughout B.C. BCAS reduced the capacity of the transfer fleet in July to better reflect the decreased demand for service. BCAS also provides every paramedic in B.C. with the opportunity to attend continuing medical education focused at maintaining and enhancing their patient care skills, spending $7.2 million on training in 2008-09 (the last year of training that was not

interrupted by job action). The Emergency and Health Services Commission responsible for BCAS has provided $5 million to the Vancouver Foundation to establish the emergency medical assistants education fund aimed at increasing primary care paramedics (PCP) working in rural and remote communities and advanced care paramedics (ACP) throughout B.C. In 2008-09, 23 ACP and 82 PCP bursaries were awarded totalling $765,000. BCAS and health authorities are Editor working together and have been successful in reducing the amount of time ambulances spend waiting at emergency departments. Ambulance waits past 30 minutes at emergency departments have dropped 38 per cent since 2006. BCAS is committed to continually improving the service we provide to patients. We are proud of the work our paramedics and dispatchers do. Les Fisher B.C. Ambulance Service CEO

Our View

Keep an eye out for the wee ones

P

arents have sent their energetic offspring back to the books this week, many of us with a mixture of relief and a bit of sadness. Sadness, because it’s just hard to see them growing up so fast and so eager to get out from under our feet. We hold them close, we read to them, play silly games and they make us laugh, love and worry. The kids are, after all, our most precious gifts, and we want the best for them. We hope the rest of you want that, too. It’s been said before, but those tumbling youngsters and sometimes brooding, sometimes sunny teenagers are the most important resource we have. These kids who seem to be of another species, with their ability to tap into an IPod expertly at the age of five, who can set up a PowerPoint presentation in a blink for a school assignment, are our future leaders, thinkers, workers, protectors, creators, healers. When we’re leaning on our canes, we will be leaning on their compassion to care for us, and their expertise to steward the globe long after we’re gone. They deserve our best, don’t they? So while many of our readers don’t need reminding, we implore you anyway to take extra care of our progeny as you head out on the roads. ICBC tells us this week that every year in B.C., there’s an average of 16,655 crashes, 5,350 injuries and 36 deaths involving children. That’s way too much heartache. Let’s not add to those terrible numbers — especially as our days begin to get darker earlier and our traditional wet weather arrives to herald fall. Leave for work early, slow down, remain patient with the crosswalk guards and those little skipping children. You were there once. While you’re at it, give that tentative little kid on the corner a wave, and be nice to the teens working at their jobs. We wish them all well and Godspeed on their daily adventures.

Perspective

Shad Valley stretches hard work into dreams

W

hile my schoolmates were out partying or cramming for frequent summer school exams, I went on an expedition to search for my identity. Nowadays, teenagers, especially high school seniors, are constantly struggling with stress. Where does all the stress come from? Some people point the finger at teachers, parents or even friends who constantly Alex seem to talk behind their backs. It’s time that we wake up and face the reality: stress is created by no one other than us. Stress is an ugly word that creates a false impression of us working hard, whether it is in our social life, school life or family life. Down to its core, stress comes as an innate response to our uncertainty. This uncertainty is in turn fuelled by a lack of understanding about ourselves. The shocking reality is that many of us do not know who we truly are or what we really want in life. That is not to say we do not have dreams and ambitions, but there is a big difference between whimsical desires and realistic goals. When we are uncertain about ourselves, we have a natural tendency to distract ourselves; the more tasks we burden ourselves with, the more stressfilled we become. Before I went to Shad Valley, a prestigious sum-

mer enrichment program, I was one of those affected by stress. Playing sports and completing school assignments to the point of perfection was my way of distracting myself from uncertainty. Shad Valley at Université Laval was the turning point of my life. Born in an Asian family, I was always doing what my parents wanted me to do, not necessarily what I wanted. Wang At Shad, what had seemed so concrete — the obligation to do well in school and live up to the expectations of others — quickly faded away. Aside from fostering a unique attitude towards entrepreneurship and the sciences, Shad Valley ultimately fostered the growth of a single community. Before, I have always envisaged Shad Valley as another one of those academic-oriented summer camps. With rowdy dance parties, movie-nights and midnight feasts constantly awaiting us, it was anything but a stereotypical nerd camp. I couldn’t remember who shed the first tears. It didn’t matter, because by the end, we were all crying silently to ourselves — that night we were huddling around a campfire, away from the bustling city. Beginning with Nick, we shared our life stories and our purposes for coming to Shad. It seemed as if the entire world blurred away

My View

except for us, only the bunch of us, isolated from the noise and distraction of the world, turning to each other for support and sympathy. At that moment, I finally realized how effective Shad was in bringing us together, in building a community with 48 complete strangers. Once scattered in the corners of this country, we came together, or rather, our souls came together on that night. For the first time in my life, I was truly touched by the human emotions pouring from those around me. Although the cover of the night was too dark for me to see their faces, I could sense their warmth and caring hands as we huddled in the dark — innocent little beings, so fragile and delicate. It was on that night that we truly opened ourselves up. We dropped our superficial covers, forgot about who we were trying to be and instead became who we truly were deep down. I am glad that my mother handed me an application eight months ago, for Shad Valley reignited the optimistic and individualistic spirit that was once a part of me. Like Dr. Suess wrote, “Don’t cry because it is over, smile because it happened.” Alex Wang is a Grade 11 student at Port Moody Secondary.

Philip Warburton Port Coquitlam ••• We just had the most exciting morning ever. Three bears wandered over to our house in PoCo, decided to eat our neighbour’s plums and rest in our tree in the backyard. The two babies came between 6 and 7 a.m., and the mother bear came around 8 or 9 a.m. I saw that the mother bear had a tag, so I got my dad to call it in. We gave them our info and a conservation officer called back minutes later. We told him what was happening and he said he would be here in 12 minutes. I was at the back window waiting for the officer to walk around to the back when the mother bear went into the neighbour’s yard again.

A PoCo family watched as three bears were tranquilized and relocated from the area. and shot the mother bear with two tranquillizers. She was able to jump the back fence, but then fell short once the drugs started working. Another conservation tranquillized a baby bear — but it scurried up the tree and rested there with the other one. The second conservation officer and a co-ordinator grabbed a sling and dragged the mother bear to the bottom of the tree, hoping that the babies would come down to the mom. They backed away from the tree and waited. That bear came back down and went into the neighbour’s yard. The baby bear was in the plum tree, and the officer shot it with tranquillizer. Then the second conservation officer tranquillized the other baby bear,

got the co-ordinator to help him with a tarp and waited for the bear to fall safely. Once the bear fell, they brought over the other one from the neighbour’s and put them all together on the sling. They tagged them and wrote stuff down. Once all this was done, they brought the mother to the truck, then the babies were put in with the mom. All that was left was a broken fence, some bear droppings, broken branches and many memorable pictures. It was a great adventure, but it was not the first time. Please remind people to bear-proof their garbage. Heather McGrath Port Coquitlam

Pile driving begins for new bridge

Paul vanPeenen/NOW

Single-lane Traffic along Ioco Road alternates between directions over the structure.

Pile driving has begun to set the steel and concrete structure that will form part of the new Noons Creek Bridge in Port Moody. Engineering staff at the City of Port Moody are working with contractors Graham Infrastructure on the 40-yearold structure. Ioco Road has been reduced to single-lane alternating traffic across a temporary bridge throughout the day, during construction. The single lane is controlled with a temporary

traffic signal. Motorists can expect delays of between 15 and 20 minutes during peak traffic flows. City staff is also encouraging Anmore and Belcarra residents to use East Road as an alternate route. Port Moody residents living at the west end of Ioco Road are also encouraged to use East Road. The City of Port Moody also requested all drivers follow the direction of flag personnel. The new bridge is slated for completion this fall.

Rob Moore announces funding to speed up the credential assessment process.

Foreign-trained accountants get boost, health care next Janaya Fuller-Evans editorial@thenownews.com

The federal government is working to streamline the accreditation process for foreign-trained accountants, Canada’s minister of small business and tourism announced. The other seven industries receiving funding to make working in Canada easier for foreigntrained workers include engineering and some health professions, according to minister Rob Moore. The government plans to focus on six other professions, including teachers and doctors, by December 2012. The government funding is designed to make it easier to hire foreign-trained professionals, Moore explained. The ministry gave Certified General Accountants Association of

Canada $990,993 for its foreign credential recognition national harmonization project. “Newcomers need to have their credentials recognized,” he said. “I commend those of you from CGA for taking the initiative to help foreign-trained individuals integrate into the workforce.” Labour shortages in certain professions are a challenge for Canada, he said. Streamlining the accreditation assessment, he said, is “crucial to Canada’s long-term economic success.” The other priority industries will be announced within the year, Moore said. It is a national online self-assessment tool that evaluates foreign-trained accountants’ education and experience, said Anthony Ariganello, president and CEO of CGA. “They can do it all online without having to visit an office,” he explained.

Crematorium encouraged to check out PoCo industrial zones jmcfee@thenownews.com

“Many of the attendants at the meeting based their opposition to the application on their perception of how siting a crematorium in their neighbourhood would make them feel.” Michael Crean, president of Kearney Funeral Services, provided a letter stating that the company is sensitive to the needs of the community. “Modern cremation equipment available today is clean, environmentally friendly and in no way disruptive to the community. … Crematoriums have proven to be a desirable feature within communities where they are employed, as

more and more people choose cremation as a means of lessening their own impact on the land base and environment,” Crean’s letter states. “Studies have proven that crematoriums have no negative impact on adjacent property values, either residential or commercial.” Despite these reassurances, the city received phone calls and e-mails after the meeting from residents who are apprehensive about allowing a crematorium at the proposed Kingsway site. Last week, residents submitted a 201-signature petition urging council to reject the application.

The ancient Chinese technique of acupuncture has been successful in China for over 2,000 years. Jane Wong has over 34 years experience as an acupuncturist. Two of Jane’s patients attest to the effectiveness of acupuncture. 74-year old Edna has been smoking for 61 years. “I’ve been smoking since I was 13 years old, often two packs a day. After just three acupuncture treatments I’ve quit.” P. Chew, 88 years old was having Sciatica. He could walk, stand up, and sleep alright, but could not sit, if he did - the unbearable pain would almost paralyze him. He was given pain drugs, but after taking them a few times he decided to stop and 34 Years Experience came to me. Now, he is free from the problem and lives happily. Jane says the centre can help with such problems as allergies, infection, arthritis and osteo arthritis, rheumatism, backaches, over-weight, sinus, chest pains, arm and shoulder pains, asthmatic wheezing, headaches, insomnia, stroke, quit smoking, sciatica, and eyesight.

A proposed crematorium that sparked reaction in Port Coquitlam residents will likely have to find a new home. Kearney Funeral Services applied to the city to use an existing building for cremation purposes at 2509 Kingsway Ave., close to a mix of commercial, residential and industrial sites. The facility would be used exclusively for the crematorium and would not be used for funerals or gatherings. However, city staff are recommending the company seek an alternate location for their business. Laura Lee Richard, Port Coquitlam’s development services director, said council could consider a crematorium within the city, as long as it’s located at the right site. “What we’ve encouraged the applicant to look for would be a site which is not so close to residential dwelling units, a little further away from where people are living,” Richard said Wednesday. “More into our industrial zones would be something we’d like them to find.” The closest apartment building, located on Gately

Avenue, is within 50 metres of the proposed site, according to a staff report. Residents expressed a strong negative response to the crematorium proposal at a public information meeting in late July, the report notes. Their reactions focused on three main concerns: release of air emissions during cremation, potential negative impacts on property values, and the negative emotional impact on nearby residents due to the nature of a crematorium’s business. “The proposed use can invoke strong feelings and emotions,” the report states.

PLAINTIFFS SHOULD FOLLOW MEDICAL ADVICE By Janice Mucalov, LL.B.

LAWYERS & TRADEMARK AGENTS

If you’re hurt in an accident, you have a duty to “mitigate” (take reasonable steps to minimize) your losses relating to your injuries. The reason is to prevent you from receiving “damages” (compensation) for any losses caused by your own neglect. Typically this comes up when the defence (i.e., ICBC) claims that you ignored medical advice. They might argue that you would be much better and have recovered more quickly if you had followed your doctor’s recommendations. If they prove this, your total damages may be reduced. For example, in one case, the plaintiff chose naturopathic remedies instead of the injections and surgery recommended by three orthopedic surgeons for her injured shoulder. The court reduced her damages by 30% for her failure to mitigate. But the defence must prove that your failure or refusal to follow the recommended treatment meant you didn’t get better as fully or quickly as you could have. Take the recent case of a plaintiff who suffered herniated discs in his back when he was rear-ended. The defence argued that he failed to mitigate by not continuing to pursue the physiotherapy, massage therapy, kinesiology or acupuncture three months after the accident, as recommended. They also argued he should have hired a personal trainer or followed a structured exercise program. But the plaintiff did see a chiropractor regularly, bought a new mattress for his back, purchased a home gym and gravity extension table and followed an exercise program at home, and took prescription and herbal medication. The BC Court of Appeal decided that the defence hadn’t proved that the plaintiff’s “less than full compliance with medical recommendations would have made any difference to his continuing disability.” Accordingly, the plaintiff’s damages of over $170,000 were not reduced. What if you stop following the recommended medical treatment because you can’t afford it? In a recent case, an active 30-year-old apprentice plumber suffered moderate soft tissue injuries to

his neck and back when his car was forcefully rearended. Four years after the accident, he still took narcotic painkillers for headaches and couldn’t ski, hike, hunt, camp or do yard work as before. For 18 months after the accident, he regularly saw a physiotherapist, massage therapist and chiropractor and went to the gym almost daily. He was starting to feel stronger and better. But then ICBC stopped paying for his rehabilitation. He only earned about $30,000 a year and couldn’t afford treatment on his own. At trial, ICBC argued he didn’t mitigate his losses and his damages should be reduced. The BC Supreme Court said, however, that the assessment of whether a plaintiff has taken reasonable steps to minimize their losses depends on all the circumstances. Financial circumstances are one factor to consider. This was not a case where the plaintiff refused to follow medical advice. Indeed, the plaintiff saved for an annual gym membership and six months later (two years after the accident), returned to the gym and lost weight. When his income increased, he also returned to massage therapy. The court decided that he didn’t act unreasonably in determining how best to try and pay for the treatments that had helped him, but which were no longer going to be paid for by ICBC. His total damages of over $400,000 weren’t cut as a result. If you’re injured in an accident and entitled to damages, a lawyer can help protect your rights and obtain the best compensation for you.

Choir to host open house

ooted in Maillardville since 1973, members of the Les Échos du Pacifique Choir will begin honing their chops for the upcoming season at an open house on Sept. 13. Headed up by conductor Luke Mayba, the choir will begin rehearsals at the open house for its four-voice adult choirs: soprano, alto, tenor and bass. That first rehearsal will serve as a launching point for the choir’s many performances, which traditionally include Festival du Bois and Light Up the Square, among others. “What better way to practise French than to do so two hours a week in a fun, stressfree social setting?” Mayba said in a release. “Singing in French is doubly enriching, since francophone cultural traditions are revealed in the lyrics we learn.” Mayba also stressed that while the rehearsals are conducted in French, being fluent in that language is not a prerequisite to join. “The most important thing is to be able to understand when I call out bar numbers. Other than that, a lot of things can be learned by demonstration.

“The important thing is that you come because you enjoy singing and practising French.” The choir’s first rehearsal is set for Sept. 13 at Centre Bel-

With your Community Brought to you by these Tri-Cities Businesses

Strategy for Picky Eaters Mealtimes are an excellent time for families to eat and talk together. Research has shown mealtimes help promote family togetherness, decrease behavioral issues in children, increase success at school and lead to better nutrition (school-wellness.org). Although families aim to have fun relaxed family mealtimes it can be a struggle for many families.

. g n i c n a D s ’ e Everyon Teaching the Tri-Cities since 2004

A common myth in the food world is that eating is completely instinctual that no matter what happens a child will eat. In reality, eating is a learned behaviour. Just as children learn to eat they can be taught to not eat by the circumstances in their lives (Toomey & Associates, INC). The overall goal for getting a child who won’t eat is to create a situation which positively reinforces normal, healthy eating patterns.The following are some strategies that can help: 1. Structure: The more things like cutlery, time of the meal stays the same the easier it is to learn. Structure develops a routine for time, place and conduct at the table. 2. Social Modeling: Meals together give children opportunities to observe, chew and positively interact with food. 3. Positive reinforcement: Verbal praise is the best and most normal reinforcer.The goal is to ensure that any interaction with food is rewarded. Punishment can turn off a child’s appetite.

4. Making foods manageable: Foods need to be small, easily chewable bites or in long, thin strips that the child can easily hold. Present a total of three foods on the plate at once.With new foods make it less new by introducing it to the child on the table only.The second time the child sees the food is when it is okay to put the food put it on their plate. 5. Assessing cognitive skills: Teach children about the physical properties of the foods so that they will know how to make the foods work in their mouths. For example banging a carrot stick on the table and discussing how hard it is teaches then their mouth and teeth will need to use hard pressure to break the food apart.

MOTORING

It’s Fiesta, after a Ford siesta David Chao and Bob McHugh editorial@thenownews.com

The Looks

Called kinetic design lan-

guage introduced with the Iosis concept vehicle, the Fiesta brings a fresh and compelling esthetic that’s been lacking in the small-car market. A sweeping design with oversized multi-element headlights and big wheel arches give it an athletic shape. The hatchback Fiesta retains the Euro grille opening, while the sedan has Ford’s signature three-bar look. A standard rear spoiler sits on the top of the hatchback’s rear liftgate. On the sedan, a spoiler is optional and it fits on the trailing edge of the trunk lid.

The Inside

A cellphone (think Razor) was the inspiration for the design of the centre dash switch assembly, which houses audio and HVAC controls. The idea being that it would be a familiar interface that would appeal to a younger buyer (who probably now owns an IPhone). Our test Fiesta SES came with the optional push-button start and the Ford sync hands-free communications and entertainment system. It’s a voice-activated system that can connect to your cellphone and offers services like 911 assist, vehicle health reports and turn-by-turn navigational assistance. Included in the SES and SEL trim levels are steering wheel-mounted audio controls and a four-inch multi-function screen that gives information. The ambient lighting system allows drivers to choose between seven interior accent lighting colours. Second-row seating features a 60/40-split folding seat with adjustable head restraints, but legroom is quite limited and the large outboard head restraints restrict the driver’s rear vision. Cargo space is not managed as cleverly in the Honda Fit, which has the multi-folding seat system. While there’s a decent amount of cargo space with the rear seatbacks up, they simply flop forward on top of the seat cushion and you’ll probably have to remove and then store the head restraints.

Safety

Fiesta comes with seven standard airbags, which includes an extra driver’s knee airbag. It’s also one more airbag than you can get, even as an option, in a Fit, Yaris or Versa. The knee airbag helps prevent leg injuries and better positions the driver to survive a serious frontal impact. More than 50 per cent of the welded body structure of Fiesta is made from highstrength steel, and Boron

The Fiesta is Ford’s welldesigned entry into the smallcar market, which is expected to grow in coming years with rising fuel prices.

steel (which has four times the strength of regular steel) is used in critical areas, such as roof pillars and side intrusion beams. Fiesta is also constructed to meet European pedestrian impact safety requirements. The sync system is also an indirect safety feature in that

A returnee to the Canadian small car battlefield, the Ford Fiesta was forced to retreat to Europe for a number of years, but is back with a vengeance. It plunges back into our market wielding a base price of just $12,999 and sleek ultra-modern new styling lines that are the envy of its competitors. The main reason behind this new small-car offensive by Ford is that this market segment is expected to see sizable sales growth in the coming years. More than just a car launch, if all goes to plan, Fiesta will re-establish Ford in the small-car market and phase 2 will see this platform spawn a whole range of other new small Ford vehicles. Boasting best-in-class highway fuel economy, Fiesta also claims to set new benchmarks in small-car safety and electronic media connectivity. The North American edition of Fiesta is made in Mexico and, in addition to the five-door hatchback body style sold in Europe, is also sold here as a four-door sedan. The Fiesta sedan comes in S, SE and SEL trim levels. The Canadian base price of $12,999 for the S trim level sedan is actually $2,000 below the U.S. base price — now there’s a refreshing change. What’s more, other than the absence of air conditioning, they are identical. The five-door hatchback body style doesn’t come in an S trim and its price starts at $16,799 for an SE trim, which is $700 more than the SE sedan. The top-line SES (hatchback) and SEL (sedan) series offer optional leather upholstery ($1,200) with contrasting colour piping. There’s also another upgrade package ($500) that includes push-button start available. Power comes from a Ti-VCT 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine with twin variable camshaft timing that can provide up to 120 horsepower and peak torque is 112 ft-lb at 5,000 r.p.m. Fuel consumption with the automatic is 6.9 L/100 km in the city and 5.1 L/100 km on the highway. Our bright green (called Lime Squeeze) test Fiesta came with the five-speed manual transmission, but another nice surprise for buyers will be the performance of the optional PowerShift sixspeed automatic transmission. Basically, it’s two manual transmissions in one that shift electronically, similar to Audi’s superb DSG transmission.

it allows drivers hands-free operation of a cellphone, car stereo and other technology without taking their eyes off the road or hands off the wheel. Electronic stability control and anti-lock brakes are standard on all trim levels.

The Drive

In addition to outstanding highway fuel economy, the Fiesta rides surprisingly well on the highway, for a small car. Some extra reserve power would be nice at highway speeds, but it certainly has no problem getting to high cruising speeds. Fiesta is quick off its mark from a standing start and its mid-range power is also impressive. Its electric-assist steering has a nice light feel at low vehicle speeds and gets progressively firmer as speed increases; it’s a more natural feel than earlier electric-assist systems. Called electric power assist steering, it has pull-drift compensation to help the car track straighter in side wind conditions, and another feature called active nibble control that dampens the transfer of for minor wheel/road vibra-

It certainly makes it a much easier task to find a comfortable driving position. And time spent behind the wheel is when owners will really appreciate the best attributes of Fiesta. Its nimble handling characteristics are a terrific bonus and at the top of its class.

When you eventually do have to pull into a gas station in a Fiesta, you’ll discover another pleasant surprise — a self-sealing fuel filler system that eliminates the gas cap.

The Score

Cool looking and competitively priced, the new Ford Fiesta is a well-engineered little car that’s a hoot to drive and a fuel-miser supreme.

Helping you prepare your children for tomorrow Full day kindergarten – It’s back to school time and, in today’s skill based economy, it’s more important than ever to ensure children get an early start on their education. That’s why the Province of B.C. is implementing full day kindergarten for more than half of all five-year olds in 2010 and for all eligible children starting in 2011. Providing kids with an early start will give them the skills they need to be successful in school and to be prepared for the opportunities of the twenty-first century.

Score Card

McIntosh ready for homecoming It’s home sweet home for defenceman Riley McIntosh. The Coquitlam native will play a major role with the BC Hockey League’s Coquitlam Express, as the program looks to get back on its feet under rookie head coach Jon Calvano. Getting the Western Hockey League veteran — who has 193 games over four seasons in major junior on his resume — was a key piece to the puzzle. The 6’5 McIntosh will be one of three defenders with junior experience, joining fellow newcomers Jared Eng and Matt Hutchinson in dishing out punishing hits to opposing forwards and knowledge to three rookies. When asked who he’ll be teaming McIntosh with, Calvano chuckled, “Everybody.” “We’re going to need a defibrillator for him. Obviously Riley’s excited about coming here and being part of his home team, ending his junior career on a high note.” It sounds like some heavy responsibility for the 20 year old, but he’s eager to take it on. “I had a few different decisions, but ultimately when the Express moved back to Coquitlam it made my decision to come home pretty easy. I grew up playing hockey here so getting back on the ice feels pretty good.” Although he brings size and presence to the ice, a change in roles is a welcome change. In stints with Kelowna and TriCity, McIntosh was assigned to defence-only duties, and his offensive numbers reflect that. “After the time I spent in the (WHL) it will be nice to play a different type of role,” he noted. “Living at home makes it all the more comfortable.” It’s his role with the younger players that will determine his mark with the club, he noted. “I think the coaching staff and everybody is looking to me to lead among the younger guys, just be a role model to the guys who are just starting out their junior careers.”

Paul vanPeenen/NOW

MAKING HIS POINT: Coquitlam Express head coach Jon Calvano, shown during practice this week, has overseen a major overhaul of the junior A hockey club’s roster. The club kicks off the new BC Hockey League season tonight in Victoria.

Express aim for respectability in 2010-11 Stories by Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Garrick Perry wants to go out with a bang, Riley McIntosh has come home, Zac Ashdown is back on track, and Khaleed Devji is ready for the pressure. Success for the Coquitlam Express in their first season back on Poirier Street will depend upon a number of factors. Hockey fans can rest assured that attitude and talent are part of the program. It’s full-steam ahead as the hockey club aims to be a competitive concern in the BC Hockey League’s Coastal Conference. Coquitlam is looking at carve out a new impression around the 16-team circuit as well as here at home after a fiveyear absence. And a good start is where it all begins. “I think it’s very important,” Perry, the newly appointed captain, said. “Last year we got off to a great start, went 5-0, and then we kind of fell off the edge of a cliff. This year getting off to a good start is very important, but we’ve got to keep

it going.” Loaded with new faces, the lineup pulls together a lot of skill, talent and determination that isn’t going to settle for mere improvement on last year’s disappointing 18-36-6 record. “In every (exhibition) game we’ve been able to score four goals or more, which is enough goals to win in this league,” head coach Jon Calvano said. “The difference has to come on defence and goaltending, and I think we’ve got a good group that can address that.” The first-year bench boss has a mix on the blueline, anchored by Western Hockey League vet and Coquitlam native Riley McIntosh. As part of a complete defensive overhaul, the club has acquired junior A veterans Jared Eng and Matt Hutchinson to help McIntosh with three junior rookies. “I think we’ll need a lot of patience with our defensive core, but I know we’ve got the talent and leadership back there,” Calvano said. Offensively, Perry and assistant captains Brad Reid and Massimo Lamacchia will lead the charge. Perry and Reid

are expected to skate with Ashdown, a sniper who played just 25 games last year before being knocked out by a knee injury. He posted seven goals and 22 points prior to the injury. Reid led the Express with 27 goals and 55 points over 60 games last year, while Perry produced 29 tallies and 23 assists over the same span. Off-season acquisitions Steve Axford, Jason Grecica and Jesse Halikas bring a mix of skill and grit, with the forward ranks also being bolstered by highly coveted freshmen Destry Straight, Justin Georgeson and Mitch Deacon. Georgeson, of Maple Ridge, and Port Moody’s Deacon were offensive linchpins with the Northeast Giants of the major midget ranks. “We’re trying to build a team around offence from everywhere,” said the coach. “It’s important to have four lines that can check, score, grind — that can contribute in all aspects.” The toughest competition was between the pipes, where two newcomers beat out three others for the goaltending duties.

Those key positions will fall on 19year-old Californian Luke Hernandez and junior B MVP Khaleed Devji. That meant both incumbents, Rob Billingham and Nick Enegren, lost out. “It was tough, definitely when it goes down right to the end — it’s a battle. It’s something you can’t really compare it to, with six guys playing as hard as they can,” Devji said of the past two weeks. Calvano said the final cuts were tough, but the two who won the job have what it takes to thrive. “All the goalies came to camp and made it tough on us,” Calvano noted. “Luke comes from a very good (LA junior Kings) program and was 21-2-0… He has junior A experience (in Alberta) that certainly helped. Both have the right mentality and approach that we liked.” The new season starts tonight in Victoria, and continues tomorrow in Duncan against the Capitals. Their road trip extends next week to Quesnel and Prince George, before returning home for their Coquitlam opener, Sept. 24, 7 p.m., against the Surrey Eagles.

Cent grad makes Cowboy cut Scott McKenzie sports@thenownews.com Nehemie Kankolongo wanted to play Division I NCAA football so badly that he rode a bus for 36 hours to Laramie, Wyoming for a football camp. With camp finished and the season opener kicking off this weekend, Kankolongo has emerged as the starting tailback for the University of Wyoming Cowboys. “That was the school that wanted to give a shot to a Canadian kid...” Kankolongo said of his long pre-training camp bus ride. “People think of me as a courageous, driven young man who was willing to do anything to get a scholarship but the reality is I just couldn’t afford a flight.” Kankolongo was a major part of the Centennial Centaurs Triple-A provincial victory last December. As a 5’11, 200-pound tailback, he teamed up with receiver-turned-quarterback Lemar Durant to provide the best one-two punch in high school football. Durant turned it into a scholarship at the University of Nevada. The two had talked about teaming up at the collegiate level since the ninth grade, envisioning themselves playing at the Rose Bowl at UCLA. “At the end of the day, Wyoming was where I wanted to go, and [Durant] was comfortable and confident in Reno so that was that,” said the 18year-old Kankolongo. When the Centaurs met the W.J Mouat Hawks in last year’s Subway Bowl, Kankolongo scored four touchdowns and rushed for 219 yards off of 37 attempts in their 39-36 win. Those yards and those TDs were a big part of what was Centennial’s first B.C. football championship in 43 years.

Kankolongo also put up gaudy numbers in the regular season — 58 carries for 537 yards and five touchdowns in five games. However, those stats weren’t enough to earn him an All-Province nod. After the Subway Bowl, Kankolongo said that he had been playing with a chip on his shoulder ever since the AllProvince selections came out, which at the very least helps to explain his dominance in the championship game. It may not have helped Kankolongo’s stock that he was playing alongside B.C.’s best allaround player in Durant. Wyoming’s coaching staff put together a relatively full 2010 recruiting class with 23 signees (the limit is 25), and Kankolongo is being heralded as one of their top recruits. According to Scout.com, a college football recruiting database, Kankolongo was the 102nd ranked tailback in North American high school football last season. He was also rated as one of the top 50 prospects in the Northwest region. Turns out that 36-hour bus ride was worth it in the end. And while most freshman football players don’t tend to get frequent playing time until their second or third year of college, tailback is a position of need at Wyoming, meaning Kankolongo figures to step into

the regular rotation immediately — after he and returning kicker Ian Watt serve a onegame suspension for violating team rules. Kankolongo also missed a big part of training camp after suffering a knee injury, which he re-aggravated last week. It’s a huge jump from high school to college, and going from hockey-mad Canada to football fanatic U.S. What’s different about it? “Just everything. Let’s face it, when you’re a good player in high school you get away with a lot of stuff. Not here. Practices are longer, more intense, more physical, more mental and more draining,” said the Congo-born tailback. “Everybody on the team was a good high school player so you’re competing with the best players from different areas and it gets pretty chaotic. It’s still football though, so it’s just an adjustment that you have to make.” Nehemie’s younger brother Jeremie plays peewee football for the Meadow Ridge Knights and is starting to show flashes of his elder sibling already. “He’s a competitor and hates to lose and I always tell him to play beyond his age because I feel he’s much more advanced physically and mentally than his peers so I expect him to dominate every game,”

Wayne Leidenfrost/PNG file

TRUE SCHOLARS: Centennial Centaurs’ offensive stars Lemar Durant, left, and Nehemie Kankolongo earned their Div. 1 college scholarships the hard way. Kankolongo said of his brother. Of course, getting the scholarship and being named starter (an extremely rare feat for a Canadian playing American college football) isn’t even half the battle. Kankolongo is coming to a young team that just won the New Mexico Bowl over Fresno State last December and will

have to continue to earn all of the playing time he gets. “The opportunity is there for me and I’m gonna work my butt off to get on the field and make some plays to help my squad.” He is planning on majoring in communications at Wyoming in order to get into journalism after his football

career is done. But, contrary to what his parents say, he never had a plan B. “I knew I was talented and I knew I could play football with the best of the best and college football was just the only goal I had.” As for that bus ride, though, Kankolongo added “I wouldn’t advise it to anybody.”

Ravens handle heat in Ottawa

The Terry Fox Ravens made mincemeat of the competition during a trip to Ottawa last week. The senior Triple-A B.C. high school football squad was in fine early season form in blasting St. Mark’s 44-6 in an exhibition test. Powered by three touchdowns from fullback Jared Soll, Fox made a smooth adjustment to Canadian rules football and steamrolled the nation’s capital squad. It began with a 53-yard long march on their first possession, with Soll plunging across for a two-yard major. Quarterback Cam Canales

then upped the lead by scampering in on a 30-yard option play. After Matteo Nardone kicked a field goal, Fox ended the quarter with a firm 17-0 advantage. Soll kept the ball rolling with a four-yard dash, while Jacob Patko continued it by cruising in from five yards to take a 30-0 lead into the half. Canales, on a long 66-yard run, and Soll, from four yards out, completed the scoring. Canales posted 108 yards on four carries and completed four of seven pass attempts for 30 yards. Patko rushed for 105 yards on six carries, with Nardone gaining 68 yards.

Racking up six tackles, a quarterback sack and two assists was Soll, while Colin Livingston, Mike Hemsworth, Jake Nylund, Ben Sharpe and Tanner White collected three tackles each. Picking up a pair of tackles apiece were Jack Brady, Dallas Callender and Tyrell Ratich. It was just part of a terrific trip that featured practices in Montreal at McGill University. Now, the squad is focused on improving on last year’s quarterfinal exit. Terry Fox faces perennial powerhouse Vancouver College today (Friday), 3:30 p.m. at Cunning Field at Town Centre.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This week starts with a romantic mood (Sunday) – and it’s a clue for the future, as a major romantic theme plays for you now through next January. If you’re single, this could have wedding bells attached. Two types of delays end early this week: the setbacks and mistakes in travel, communications and bitty details over the last several weeks,and the deeper,more subtle but powerful delays in relationships, marriage, partnership, opportunity and negotiations (since April). These resume forward motion. A lucky legal, travel, educational, love or cultural event (or “start”) is imminent! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Something will either be solved, end, or begin this week. (Gee, that was an easy prediction!) This occurs in your spheres of sexual intimacy, mutual financial resources, investments/debt, deep health, or “detective work.” (These are actually the same sphere – it’s the place of deep drives, your “engine room.”) An ally or enemy is involved. And the actual “event” is sudden, lucky, perhaps unexpected. (Lucky, but not necessarily monetarily: the exhilaration here is from freedom.) Many delays end now, especially in earnings, possessions, home, real estate and employment. Don’t look back! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness hit a yearly high. Delays end. (You might still feel indecisive, but the cure for this is to act – action creates its own decisiveness.) A new start, or the sudden solution to an old problem, or the sudden return of an old situation, occurs – it involves marriage or a partnership, an opportunity, relocation, fame, dealings with the public, negotiations, litigation, competition, or similar relationship dealings. A fivemonth delay in romantic, creative, speculative or child-oriented ventures also ends now. Thursday/ Friday contain nice clues about this.

Sell your house ‘as is’ for a fair price on the date of your choice

Aries March 21 - April 19: It’s your last week (well, 10 days) of work, drudgery and health concerns. Recent delays and mistakes ebb, giving you the freedom to charge ahead. Quickly tackle past due and new jobs. Next week will begin a month of opportunity, negotiation or wrestling with a challenge – you’ll want to be free of the chains of chores. Your sexual, financial and “deep health” zones grow more and more important – and generally lucky – now into December. This can lead to a lustful affair, an investment or settlement – all of which open lifestyle doorways. Love is a (the!) “source of health.” Taurus April 20-May 20: Romantic, creative, child-oriented and pleasure delays end. Act fast – you only have 10 days to win someone’s heart, or make your creative mark. (Of course there will be other opportunities down the road. In fact, you’ve just started a four-month run of social luck, flirtations and popularity – and light romance, if you’re single. But “light” contrasts with the present deep influence.) Sunday promotes partnerships (be diplomatic). Sex, secrets and high finance Monday to Wednesday: caution flags fly. Mellow wisdom, love Wednesday-Friday. A big (social) surprise Saturday! Gemini May 21-June 20: This week offers a sudden breakthrough in career, prestige and worldly position, or with a parent, boss or authority figure. A legal, publishing, educational or far-travel project might be involved – so might a partner, a fight or a negotiation (even potential fame). Hope, pray, have faith! Delays at home and in general end now – more subtly, elusive but quietly crushing delays (since April) in sexual, health and financial zones also end. You’ll feel more effective. The 10 days ahead feature your domestic scene, real estate, kids, security: charge ahead here, especially Friday.

Sept. 12 - Sept. 18

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A breakthrough or new start might occur in employment, machinery or health zones. (Perhaps Saturday late afternoon/supper hour – a good time to chase such things.) You’ve attracted attention, obvious or not, for the last five weeks. Now that romantic wave subsides. But your chances for sensual satisfaction (e.g., a casual affair) actually increase, now to December. Keep your eye on the long-term: 2011 through 2012 will bring partnership excitement on a level you haven’t seen for at least seven years. Delays end in law, education, publishing and travel, real estate, home and family. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A former love or creative, speculative or child-oriented situation could return – perhaps with a bang that launches a new beginning. Delays are over in social, political, organizational, entertainment and planning activities. Also, a quiet general feeling of indecision or slowness, affecting you since last April, dissolves now. Your energy stays nicely high Sunday onward. A wish could come true this week! Your sexual and romantic magnetism are climbing, will surge through December. Chase money Monday/Tuesday. Travel, call people Thursday/Friday. Be domestic, with family Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Be ambitious – delays, barriers and mistakes are over. (Indecision lingers, but that can be solved by action. Do what makes you feel cheerful or optimistic – these are always, all life, your signal of the correct choice.) Spend Sunday resting. Tackle the world when your energy and charisma leap upward Monday through Wednesday morning. (Your home situation might interfere with your career for four months – choose career Wednesday, home later. Your family, property, security “start anew” this week in a lucky, freeing way!) Chase money, not friends, Thursday/Friday. Saturday’s lively!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Delays end in legal, intellectual, far travel, publishing, insurance, cultural and love spheres. Chase one or more of these now, without delay. Delays also end in a more subtle, halfsensed area: within yourself, in your compass, your choices about your future – once again, you can steer your life. (At least until next April, when the spring/ summer brings the same subtle indecision. This pattern will hold for some years. Knowing this can save you wasted effort.) Past weeks mixed lust with career. Now to January, light romance, social flirtations arrive! Grab success Thursday/Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Delays end in sexual, financial,deephealthandlifestyleareas–makechoices in these during the next 10 days. This decade and next, each spring/summer brings quiet, unannounced delays or hold-ups to your career zone, usually from head office or a government agency. Now these delays lift – until next April. Time to act! A new monetary or earnings picture comes this week. But it’s “back to the future” somehow – a repeat/evolvement of a former situation. A romantic or heightened intellectual interest ebbs – instead, to December, “romance” enters your career zone: take care! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The accent remains on relationships, opportunities, negotiation, contracts, agreements and possible clashes. But now the future comes in – delays, indecision and faces from the past ebb, and valid new meetings, opportunities arrive. A wish might come true in this area Wednesday to Friday! More deeply, you finally will begin to seek, plan and visualize your future (and your social contacts) without dithering about the ethics or wisdom of this or that. The rest of 2010 lifts your love/romance prospects – and career luck! (Perhaps suddenly – overnight.) August/September’s “lust” fades. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
