High-tech park plan on hold Simone Blais sblais@thenownews.com

Port Moody’s plans for a high-tech business park are over before they officially started. City officials confirmed Tuesday that council voted last week to shelve plans to create a high-tech business park once it became apparent that funding to develop a business plan was not available. Coun. Gerry Nuttall, who stepped down as the economic development committee vice-chair, said the business plan didn’t receive financial support from senior levels of government. “Because there was no funding available for doing up a business plan, council decided they couldn’t take the project any further,” Nuttall said. “They instructed the subcommittee to be disbanded, as there was no further work to be done on it.” The city’s economic development committee had approached both the Western Economic Diversification Canada fund as well as Port Moody-Coquitlam MLA Iain Black, who serves as minister of small business, technology and economic development. The city approached both provincial and federal governments for approximately $100,000 in funding to draft a business plan for the hightech park, but neither level of government had grants or funding available for preliminary projects like business plans. As a result, Mayor Joe Trasolini said, council voted last week to forgo the project and disband the subcommittee. “For the moment, the plans are shelved. I’m hoping they’ll  CONT.

A massive concrete structure has been built to encase 30,000 cubic metres of material near the Coast Meridian Overpass in Port Coquitlam.

‘Contaminated’ soil near overpass City of Port Coquitlam plans to store material ‘in perpetuity’

Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com A 207-metre-long lockbox structure runs alongside the Coast Meridian Overpass to store a material found on the site. But what exactly is being kept inside? The City of Port Coquitlam says the container is being used to store 30,000 cubic metres (one million cubic feet) of “carbon cruciate” material left behind by Kennametal Inc., a metal manufacturing company formerly located on the site. But Kennametal says it adheres to strict environmental standards and

has never even heard the term “carbon cruciate” before. Port Coquitlam’s transportation manager Dave Currie said carbon cruciate is “a type of waste that needs to be handled in a certain way.” “It’s material that was left over from the metal foundry works, the Kennametal property,” Currie said. Kennametal manufactured tungsten carbide metals on the PoCo property from the 1960s until about 1990. In 2002, Kennametal, which is based in Pennsylvania, sold the property to a member of The Beedie Group. The city later purchased a portion of the property — about 2.4 hectares (six acres) — from The Beedie Group for

the Coast Meridian Overpass project. As part of the purchase negotiations, Currie said, The Beedie Group agreed to remediate that specific area of the site to meet Ministry of Environment requirements. However, Currie could not provide an exact definition of the material on the site. “Let’s be clear — I’m not an environmental expert. It’s a type of waste that needs to be handled in a certain way, but it’s adequate to have it stored,” he said. “It’s being stored in perpetuity, and that’s consistent with Ministry of Environment expectations and requirements … And the city is committed to maintain that state.”

Currie also could not provide comment on whether the substance could be dangerous to plants, animals or soil. “It’s material that needs to be stored in a certain way. That’s all I can really say, is it needs to be stored in a certain way and we’re doing that,” he said. “In its condition at the end of this remediation and the completion of this storage cell by Beedie, then it will be in a condition that’s stable and can be maintained that way for the long term.” But Joy Chandler, Kennametal’s vice-president of corporate relations,  CONTINUED ON PAGE 5, see ‘I AM.’

Shelter wants more space for cats Fundraisers set for June 12 and 13 will raise funds to expand facilities

Stories by John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

S

taff at the Coquitlam Animal Shelter are looking towards a permanent solution for a perennial problem. It’s hoped that a fundraiser planned for June 12 and 13 will raise the necessary funds to refurbish the shelter’s indoor and outdoor cat areas, a move that would help keep the cats healthy and active while minimizing the risk of disease and illness. The shelter’s indoor cat area currently has room for 25 to 28 cats, numbers that are a lot more sustainable than those experienced last summer when the shelter was inundated with more than 70 cats. “It’s preferable to not have pods of more than 20 cats. Hopefully we can have smaller, self-contained pods of cats just in case there ever was a disease issue,” said Andrea McDonald, Coquitlam’s manager of bylaw and animal control services. McDonald said the majority Andrea McDonald, of the funding needed for the construction of the facility itself is already accounted for, and work on the shelter began three weeks ago. The goal of the weekend-long drive is to raise about $5,000, money that will be used to purchase kennels and other supplies. Last year’s influx in cat numbers followed a pattern that the shelter has traditionally seen each summer: warmer weather, breeding and wandering tendencies all create the perfect storm. Coupled with those factors is the fact that some cat owners choose not to spay or neuter their pets,

shown here with Solomon, can’t wait for the Coquitlam Animal Shelter to expand. or fail to get identifying chips. In fact, the shelter’s cat recovery rates have traditionally hovered around 15 per cent, versus the 85-per-cent recovery rate for dogs. “Last summer when we had over 70 cats, it was just not healthy,” McDonald said. “Even things like colds will run rampant through the cat room when your numbers are that high because they are so close.” As part of the weekend fundraiser, shelter staff are organizing a garage sale on June 12 at the facility,

Kevin Hill/NOW

which is located at 500 Mariner Way. Similar to a car trunk sale, residents can purchase spots for $12 to set up a booth and sell their wares. A bottle drive and dinner fundraiser are also planned for Sunday, June 13. The animal shelter offers both adoption and fostering programs for cats. The temporary fostering program matches cats with families while the felines are waiting for adoption. Vet costs are covered by the shelter. For more info, call the shelter at 604-9277387 or log on to www.coquitlam.ca.

Coquitlam ponders off-leash options Fresh off one round of heated debate, Coquitlam is looking to extend the community conversation on offleash dog parks. The city held a four-hour public information session last week to gauge residents’ ideas and concerns regarding a new off-leash dog park in the City Centre area. “It is an important issue and I think it’s something that’s long overdue — to recognize that dogs are a part of our community,” said Mayor Richard Stewart, who was in attendance for part of last Wednesday’s discussion. “But we also have to be sensitive to the rest of the population and make certain that we’re trying to meet the diverse needs sensitively.”

Slated to be completed within an $80,000 budget envelope, the new dog park would have to adhere to several criteria laid out by city staff, including the inclusion of durable, long-lasting, dog-friendly materials that are easy to maintain and sustain, as well as a stipulation that the park be designed with a number of different user groups in mind, so as to not create any conflicts. The city currently has four off-leash areas — located at Miller, Mundy, Ridge and Bramble parks — though a fifth off-leash area near Mundy Park is also in the works. According to a city staff report, building an off-leash park with a fenced area would be much more

expensive as opposed to those set up on trails. That said, a number of options were offered at Wednesday’s meeting. A 10,000-square-metre (2.5-acre) area in the northeast corner of Glen Park was one of the first options presented, and the proposal would include both a fenced-off area and trails for off-leash dogs. The northwest corner of the Town Centre Sports Complex would encompass about 2,000 square metres (0.5 acres), and would be located near the corner of David Avenue and Pinetree Way. It would require fencing, more ground cover and the installation of some shrubs. The third option would be to expand

the trail system along the west side of the Coquitlam River, with access points on Gabriola Drive, Anvil Court and Ozada Avenue. This option would require signs reminding dog owners to keep their pets out of the river and other environmentally sensitive areas. Option four is a proposal for a fenced off-leash area near Eagle Ridge Park along the BC Hydro right-of-way. Located between Guildford Way and Lansdowne Drive, the site would be about 2,000 square metres (0.5 acres) in size. A trail system between Cliffrose Crescent and Waterford Pace was also presented, though there is no parking  CONTINUED ON PAGE 9, see PUBLIC.

Get back in the game. Say goodbye to pain. After a few hours of tennis I would develop a limp and the knee pain was interfering with my game & sleep. I had an MRI and X-Rays and was diagnosed with serious arthritis in both knees. The other Doctors recommended physio therapy and expensive remedies that were injected into both knees. There was only minor improvement noticed. After seeing an ad in our local paper I decided to give Laser Light Therapy a chance. I’ve had about six half hour treatments for each knee and I can’t believe the results. Now after tennis I feel almost Laser Light Therapy no knee pain or stiffness and can sleep without pain.

‘I am at a loss as to what material is in question’  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

said she has never heard of carbon cruciate. “I have never seen the term ‘carbon cruciate’ before, nor can I find it in a web search. The only ‘cruciate’ I could see deals with ligaments in the leg, so I am at a loss as to what material is in question,” Chandler wrote in an e-mail Tuesday. “Kennametal received approval from the Ministry of Environment as to the condition of the site in 1998 … We operate in 60 countries and always to the strictest environmental and safety standards, so we are very proud of our records in these key areas.” However, Igor Zahynacz, Port Coquitlam’s engineering and operations director, also said the material came from metal manufacturing. “Carbon crucible material, that’s material from the metal operation smelting that was happening a long time ago. It’s on the site. The metallurgical metal manufacturing company vacated the site some years ago and The Beedie Group bought it.” The substance is being stockpiled in a single location west of the south overpass ramp, Zahynacz said. “It’s fairly inert, from what I understand, so it’s just being stored at this time. It’s always been there,” he said. “It’s just being stored in one location … It’s being stored, protected with a normal environmental process and certificates from environmental consultants and approved by the Ministry of Environment. So it’s under provincial remediation process.” Zahynacz said The Beedie Group hired a consulting firm called Next Environmental Inc., but representatives from the Burnabybased company declined to comment. Catherine Birch of Next Environmental said questions should be directed to the city, since

it owns the property. “I’m afraid we can’t provide comments. We’re consultants and we work for a client,” Birch said. The Beedie Group and the Ministry of Environment did not respond to requests for information by NOW deadline. However, a submission to TransLink from the City of Port Coquitlam dated May 3, 2005, mentions a contaminant on the site. “The industrial land required south of the CP Rail yards, the Beedie property, has been identified as containing contaminated soil. The property acquisition costs payable to the owner should be offset against the city’s cost for soil remediation/removal, etc.,” states the report, prepared by Urban Systems in association with Buckland & Taylor Ltd. “The city’s environmental services and the property agent determined that $800,000 and 20 per cent land contingency factor should be reasonable for the Beedie property taking. As no environmental assessment has been done, there is a risk that this cost could be exceeded.” Currie confirmed that The Beedie Group is paying for the construction of the “CCM storage cell,” which is a lined lockbox container that’s seven metres (23 feet) high and ranges from 21 to 30 metres (69 to 98 feet) wide. He said the design also includes a “leachate collection system” to contain anything that might leach out of the lockbox. Once the structure is complete, grass will grow on top and Boston ivy will be planted at the base. “Beedie Group is paying for all of the design, construction, etc., and then we’ll take it over in terms of ownership of it once they are finished all their work, likely later this year,” Currie said. “Then, at that time, the city only has relatively minimal maintenance costs after that.”

Opinion

More education, less dictation Re: “One of these things doesn’t belong,” editorial, Friday, May 28. As one who quit smoking cigarettes roughly 40 years ago, I can sympathize with your editorial support for the arguments of anti-smoking folks who want pharmacies to be prohibited from selling tobacco products. However, as your editorial acknowledges, these are legal substances and, unless we as a society choose to make them illegal, we should not be dictacting which retail outlets can sell them To The and which cannot. I thought we lived in a democracy where buying, selling and using legal substances is a matter of personal choice. If we are going to limit our democracy in the way your editorial supports, then we’re into “big brother” syndrome and we already have more of that than we need as a result of governments responding to zealots whose causes they espouse.

Let’s have more education, less dictation. Jim Peacock Port Moody

Why can’t we have SkyTrain?

Re: “Promises are easy, but money’s scarce,” editorial, Wednesday, May 26. It is so depressing to think that we (our community, our province, our country) cannot afford to have a simple rapid transit system. I, an ordinary Editor person, have no solution to this. But I see that rapid transit systems are being built and used all over the world. I envy the residents of Richmond and south Vancouver now with their beautiful SkyTrain line. How come we are so unfortunate here in the Tri-Cities that we cannot have one? Sammy Liang Coquitlam

Our View

MP’s travel costs a taxpayer nightmare

L

ast year was a tough one financially for many Canadians as our country was caught up in a global recession. While many of us cut back our spending, feared for our jobs and held on desperately waiting for an end to the downturn, Conservative MP Russ Hiebert piled up roughly four times his annual salary in expenses — $637,093 for the year. Most of that, $422,733, went to paying for office space and staff, office equipment, printing and other costs associated with the job. A little more than one-third of the total, however, went to the cost of travel between his riding (South Surrey-White RockCloverdale) and Ottawa for Hiebert and his wife and two children. Hiebert appears puzzled that anyone would be offended at him spending $214,360 ferrying himself and his family back and forth. He wants to keep his family together and if that’s what it costs, well, that’s what it costs. We agree with the many Canadians who have responded to Hiebert’s high-roller spending with outrage. Spending that kind of money during a recession is a slap in the face to ordinary Canadians. Hiebert’s party campaigned on promises to reduce government spending and eliminate waste in Ottawa. When the Conservatives were in opposition, they relentlessly attacked the Liberals for their “sense of entitlement.” Hiebert defends his spending by saying it meets the rules set out for such things. It’s true, he’s broken no rules, but while obeying the letter of the law, he has abandoned the spirit of the Conservative Party of Canada in opposition. His new mantra is: I’m entitled, the money’s there, I’m taking it, deal with it. Mr. Hiebert, you don’t want to be separated from your family. Fair enough. But do you really expect the Canadian taxpayer to pick up this kind of tab year after year? Maybe this isn’t the job for you.

— of the HST, will 1.5 million people still turn out to vote to repeal it? For these reasons, the referendum appears to be the most enticing option open to a government hellbent on keeping the tax. The Liberals are likely to bet that when all is said and done 16 months from now, not enough people will get out and vote to get rid of the HST. It may seem to be a safe bet, but then again many people — including me, I repeat! — discounted the chances of the anti-HST petition succeeding and were proven dead wrong. History shows that tax revolts don’t last very long, but we may be in uncharted waters with the HST. The prospects of a recall campaign against one or more Liberal MLAs is still a real possibility, even if a referendum is promised. In any event, the white-hot issue will soon be handed off to that group of anonymous Liberal backbenchers (one has to wonder whether Campbell will alter the makeup of the committee to give his side more experience). Of course, the premier will be telling his backbenchers what to do (the NDP has four members as well). Nevertheless, it seems odd that the fate of the Liberal government is about to be turned over to six people with very little political experience between them. But, as the premier says, that’s the law. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Waste-to-energy doesn’t deal with the root problem: As a society, we’re still creating too much garbage P

ort Moody’s mayor, Joe Trasolini, recently voted in support of Metro Vancouver’s draft solid waste management strategy, which includes expansion of the region’s waste-to-energy (incineration) infrastructure. Twice in recent months I attempted to contact the mayor to ask him why he supports waste-to-energy, and twice I received no reply. If waste-to-energy is so clearly beneficial to our region, why is the mayor so sheepish about explaining his decision to support it? Mayor Trasolini’s position is particularly puzzling given that the volunteers of Port Moody’s environmental protection committee summarized their arduous meetings through the summer of 2009 in a report that strongly opposed Plasco’s waste-to-energy. The mind boggles further considering that the Cache Creek landfill has recently been given an extension to receive waste for another 25 years, thus alleviating our so-called “garbage crisis.” Landfills are not perfect. They slowly release the powerful greenhouse gas methane as organic material buried underground decomposes anaerobically (without oxygen). However, Port Moody and Port Coquitlam are taking a leadership role as municipalities piloting the removal of organic material from the waste stream, diverting it to composting programs, which drastically reduces landfill methane production. And while we need to move aggressively towards a society where industries are not permitted to produce nonrecyclable plastics, in the meantime, those

tobaccodocuments.org/bliley_pm/24415. html), Bridges held the position that there was insufficient evidence linking tobacco smoke, either direct or second-hand, to cancer and cardiovascular disease. And in Metro’s recent decision to deny UBC’s atmospheric scientist Dr. Douw Steyn renewed funding for air quality research because of his outspoken opposition to incineration, they have perpetuated a long chain of historical precedents of politicians and religious leaders shooting the scientific messenger. After all, if our scientists aren’t telling us what we want to hear, isn’t ignorance and denial so much better? Waste-to-energy is not a sustainable or ecologically responsible energy source, nor is it a wise long-term investment for a society truly committed to the elimination of waste. Our current overproduction of waste is like a severed artery, and ramping up waste-toenergy is the equivalent of getting faster and faster at bringing trays to catch the spurting blood, instead of applying pressure to stop the flow. Committing to waste-to-energy doesn’t deal with the root problem: that our society has become unwittingly locked into a culture of too much waste. Let’s see some solid commitment to waste reduction, not another Band-Aid. Lesley Evans Ogden is a freelance writer, ecologist and lecturer in environmental biology who is based in Port Moody.

come back when economic times are a little better,” Nuttall said. Coun. Diana Dilworth, who chaired the economic development subcommittee, could not be reached by deadline. Unveiled last December, plans for the hightech park included a multi-tenant building intended to feature a large anchor business and many upstart “incubator” businesses looking to foster industry innovation, all located in 250,000 to 300,000 square feet of leasable

space that was to create 400 to 500 jobs in its first phase. While plans for the high-tech park are officially on hold, Trasolini said he hopes to attract private investors willing to front the business plan funding so the city can move forward on the project. “It is an ambitious plan, but if you don’t have ambition, you don’t become anything, do you?” he said, adding that the proposed high-tech park had been the primary focus of economic development in the city. “That was the major thing,” he said. “We’re going to look at other opportunities.”

Car wash fundraiser benefits families

The Gaby Davis Foundation, along with firefighters from Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam, will join forces this year for the third-annual Swap Meet and Fire Department Car Wash FUNdraiser. This event, which sees firefighters volunteer their time to wash vehicles, will also feature live entertainment, family activities, food and a community swap meet. The foundation helps families affected by childhood cancer, and honours the memory of Gaby Davis, who died on March 1, 2007 at the age of seven. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, June 12 at Coquitlam River Elementary, at 4250 Shaughnessy St. (near David Avenue) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Hotdogs, popcorn, cotton candy, a bouncy castle, games and more will be available for the kids, while garage sale bargains and raffle prizes will tempt mom and dad. “We are so excited to have both fire departments joining forces with us this year and hosting the car wash,” said foundation director Tanya Davis. “Last year, the car wash brought in close to $2,000. And the whole event raised just over $10,000, which in turn helped several struggling families over the last year. We are very thankful for the support of the community.” The money raised will go to help with items such as travel costs for families that need to seek treatment outside of Canada, other medical expenses not covered by traditional coverage and the day-to-day expenses that still need to be looked after.

ART FOR A CAUSE: Port Moody Secondary’s Community Leadership Force is planning a Summer Artisan Fair on June 12 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the main entrance to Douglas College’s David Lam campus. The event will feature works from 20 artisans, including students, who will showcase jewelry, paintings, sculptures, photos, cartoon caricatures and more. Children and adults will also have the opportunity to participate in a learnto-paint station. Admission is free, and the group hopes to raise at least $1,000 for the Down Syndrome Research Foundation.

enerations are joining together through an initiative called RAC ROCKS, or Real Act of Caring — Reaching Out to the Community through Kindness from Students. In this program, 37 Grade 4 and 5 students from Hampton Park Elementary eat lunch once per week with Dufferin Care Centre residents. “There is nothing better than bright young faces to cheer up our residents,” Dufferin recreation director Louise Joycey said in a press release. “The visit from Hampton Park’s students reduces anxiety and makes for a calmer afternoon.” District 43 counsellor Harriette Chang said the program has positive effects for students as well. “Empowering students leads them to initiate positive action,” Chang said. “In fact, they are owning positive change.” Through the same program, students are raising money for disaster relief in Haiti in addition to donating their hair for children undergoing cancer treatment.

Small Umbrian town lets visitors to Italy feel like locals Nancy Morgantini travelwriterstales.com

I

have to tell you about the “sausage convention” in Orvieto, Italy. At least that is what we called them: the sausage guys. They were everywhere, in packs of six or seven, strolling the streets in their going-to-town suits and ties. My husband, Luigi, the Italian linguist, said their dialect was definitely from the south — but no, they were not, or could not be, associated with the “M” word. Their not-so-great-fitting suits and fake silk ties gave them away (and I think they bought their “designer” sunglasses from one of those street vendors). They strutted around like flocks of roosters — roosters with cellphones. We asked a waiter at a small café if they were locals. After he recovered from laughing, he said they had been around for a week and no one knew who they were or why they were there. We decided they must be in town for a

golf burnaby

sausage convention and nicknamed them “the sausage guys.” So, days later, who do we see at the train station waiting for the train to Naples? The sausage guys — still wearing the same attire, but with no luggage. Who goes to Orvieto for a whole week with nothing but one suit and one tie? Orvieto was to be, for Luigi and I, a place to drop off the rental car, but it turned out to be much more than we had expected. Thanks to the Internet, we found the perfect home in Orvieto. CasaVera Bed & Breakfast felt more like our own apartment, with a fully equipped Umbrian kitchen. It was quite a discovery, just a few metres from the heart of historic Orvieto. Much of the city traces its history back to Etruscan times (800 BC). Built on a huge cliff of tufa (a soft volcanic rock), it dominates the surrounding hills and plains. It has seen millennia of history and civilization. We took the underground tour to see just

two out of 1,200 known Etruscan underground chambers and tunnels. Four hundred and forty four of the chambers are still accessible, most privately owned and some used as wine cellars. One of the most interesting chambers was one I called the “pigeon hole.” Dozens of pigeon roosts were carved out of the tufa walls, not by Etruscans, but during the medieval period when pigeon pâté was profitable and the only

source of protein during sieges — the chamber was an early home-based business. The underground is only a small part of the charm of Orvieto. We could wander through the narrow cobblestone streets, sit outside a small bar or café with our aperitivo and feel like locals. I almost felt Italian (if only it were  CONTINUED ON PAGE 13, see ITALIAN TOWN.

The enormity of the Duomo gave me a feeling of unreality, but after seeing and hearing the 21st-century wedding taking place, I had a different perspective. Although our visit to Orvieto was short, it was long enough for me to fall in love with the feeling of being totally immersed in the Italian culture, even for my Englishonly speaking self. I see a return visit in my future.

It’s hard not to feel like you’ve travelled back in time when strolling among buildings that originated in the 1300s.

that easy to learn the language). The buildings in our “neighbourhood” dated back to around the 1300s, giving us an amazing feeling of time travel. One night, as we wandered down Via del Duomo, I glanced up at a third-storey window and discovered a beautifully frescoed ceiling. It made me wonder what other treasures hide inside those historic buildings. After our visit to the underground, we headed above ground — way above, 47 metres, to be exact. The Torre del Moro, a 13th- to 14th-century tower, provided a pigeon’s-eye view of Orvieto and the Umbrian hills. What could be a better way to enjoy Italy than to refine oneself and spend a night at the opera? In Orvieto, I was finally able to shed my tourist attire, dig my skirt out of the suitcase and experience my first ever Italian opera, Rigoletto, in Teatro Mancinelli, a beautiful 150year-old theatre. These are the theatres where operas were first performed: warm, small, intimate and with elegant surroundings. And how could I forget the Duomo di Orvieto? The famous gothic-style cathedral smack-dab in the centre of historic Orvieto, with its excessively decorated façade and gothic design-striped sides, was a must-see. With camera in hand, hearing the distinctive Bridal March, I rushed to capture the bride

Boredom be gone with art-filled fun

Eagle Ridge offers camps Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship is offering a range of activities to keep kids busy this summer. Big Trouble at Oakwood Manor is a day camp for boys and girls entering grades 1 through 6 in September. Each morning, campers and instructors will meet for drama and music, and then break off for fun group activities and games. Afternoons will be filled with different outings around the city.

Y

outh needn’t be bored or feel isolated this summer when there’s so much art to do. Place des Arts’ popular Summer Fun Art Camp offers five weeks of stimulating week-long art intensives where youth ages 12 to 14 can explore, create and make friends. Place des Arts’ highly skilled teachers have programmed the following intensive workshops specifically for young teens, giving them the opportunity to delve deeply into a variety of visual and performing arts.

Camps run Monday to Fridays on July 12 to 16, July 16 to 23 and Aug. 2 to 6. For those who are more athletically minded, the church is also offering a basketball camp for boys and girls in kindergarten to Grade 6. The camp will run from Monday, July 26 until Friday, July 30 from 9 a.m. to noon. High Seas Expedition is a fun-filled half-day camp for  CONTINUED ON PAGE 15.

Week 1: July 5 to 9

The first of two sessions of the popular summer clay intensive is offered. Beginning potters will learn the basics of wheel throwing and create several handmade projects. More experienced potters will build upon their existing skills. Those with a song in their heart and a desire to hear it out loud can take songwriting with Mark Vescovi. No musical experience is required, just a creative mind and the desire to turn words into song.

Kids 12 and under are free. Free T-shirt, barbeque lunch and 100’s of prizes. Meet Jack the Giant and hear Norman Foote and the So Tight Band. Make a free gift for Dad in the kid zone and play some awesome games.

Week 2: July 12 to 16

Using a crochet hook and lots of imagination, students can make stunning and unique pieces of jewelry in the Woven Wire: Crochet Jewelry class. For budding authors, a creative writing class for inspired writing will spark the creative muse. A third class offered this week on magazine production gives students the tools to create and produce their own magazine.

Week 3: July 19 to 23

Tagging is not only allowed, it’s encouraged in the graffiti class. Led by professional animator Kenten Bowick, it runs in the afternoon. Add to it a morning mixed-media mask making class for a full day of inspired visual arts.

Priya Puri shows off the woven wire necklace she crafted during Amanda Maxwell’s crochet jewelry camp.

Week 4: July 26 to 30

Actors won’t want to miss the Instant Theatre improv class with pro actor and playwright James O’Shea. Also running this week is the fibre arts sampler, where students learn about fibres and their uses to create beautiful handmade crafts. This is also the second week of the clay intensive.

Week 5: Aug. 3 to 6 While only four days in

length, these camps are jam packed with activities. Inspired by the hit TV show Glee, glee club teen is all about singing, dancing, acting and having fun. For the visually inspired, digital photography in the afternoon is a great way to get started on a summer photo album. Registration for Place des Arts summer teen intensives can be done online at www. placedesarts.ca or in person at 1120 Brunette Ave. in Coquitlam.

Pack from the head to the toe and beyond

A

day at camp is filled with endless possibilities: swimming, hiking, playing sports — the list goes on and on. With all of these different activities in mind (not to mention changes in weather), making sure you pack the right thing for your child’s every camp experience can be a challenge. Luckily, there are some tried-and-true items that you can send to camp with your child to ensure they are prepared for almost anything. The American Camp Association (ACA) offers this head-to-toe summer camp packing list: Headgear: This includes items like scarves, bandannas, baseball caps, eyeglasses, sunglasses and swimming goggles. Clothing: T-shirts, tank tops, shorts, long pants, a jacket, a swim suit, pajamas and robe and, of course, underwear should be included. Footwear: Consider items such as boots, tennis shoes, sandals, dress shoes and socks. Also consider what to pack in these areas: Bed and Bath: towels, as well as a blanket, pillow, pillow cases, sheets, sleeping bag, laundry bag and mattress pad.

Camp is always more fun when everything the child needs is packed. Bathroom Kit: a brush and comb, shampoo, soap and soap container, toothbrush and holder, toothpaste, deodorant, insect repellent, feminine products, sun block, shaving gear and lip balm with sun block in it. Other items: books and magazines, flashlights and batteries, frisbees or other toys, a water bottle and writing materials.

When considering electronics, musical instruments, and other special gear, check with the camp about policies. ACA recommends that families prepare for camp together.

Blast from the past for the BC Lions as den moves back to Empire Field Construction is almost complete on the temporary stadium at Empire Field that the BC Lions will call home for the 2010-11 season. The home opener in the Lions’ temporary den will be on June 21 against Edmonton. For some fans, it will be a brand new experience. For others, it will provide a taste of the past. “We have a tremendous opportunity in 2010 to provide our fans with a season to remember as we return to the birthplace of Lions football for the first time in 27 years,” said George Chayka, the Lions’ vice-president of business. The one-year move to Empire Field became necessary following the announcement late last year that construction on a new retractable roof for BC Place would not be completed until July 2011. The BC Lions will host the 99th Grey Cup at BC Place in November 2011.

The BC Lions are heading back to their old turf this season, when they return to Empire Field. photo courtesy BC Lions

TransLink has boosted service linking to Empire Field quite significantly since the Lions last played there. Service on Hastings Street and links from the North Shore and from the Millennium SkyTrain Line will give fans great connections to the games, and TransLink will offer “special events” boosts in service for game days.

Empire Field, along with driving directions and parking information. Completely enclosed on all four sides with an approximate seating capacity of 27,500, the new Lions’ den at Empire Field will be a cosy fit for fans. Individual seats totaling 20,100 will run along the side lines and another 7,400 bench-style seats will occupy the end zones. Sideline seats between the goal lines will be covered and a limited number of private boxes will also be constructed along with media facilities, concessions, stadium level lighting, scoreboards, a video board and washrooms.

Quick Facts: •

Location: Empire Field at the PNE, previous site of Empire Stadium

Seating capacity: 27,500 seats sideline seats will be covered

Number of private boxes: 12

Number of seating technicians required to build stadium: 50-60

Soccer scammers seek new victims, BBB warns As the FIFA World Cup quickly approaches, the Better Business Bureau says fraudsters are trying their best to take advantage of consumers through lottery prize scams. In February, FIFA issued a warning about lottery prize scams associated with its name, stating that there is no World Cup 2010 Lottery affiliated in any way to FIFA. A new variation of the FIFA lottery scam is appearing as a mass e-mail, which has a PDF attachment outlining the prize details. The scam lottery appears to be from FIFA and a partnership between the South African

and Canadian governments. The message tries to convince recipients to give their personal information or forward money to receive a prize. “Soccer is an extremely popular sport and with the World Cup around the corner, we are seeing the foreign lottery scam making a comeback,” said Lynda Pascareta, Better Business Bureau of Lower Mainland BC president and CEO, in a press release. “Stick with the BBB’s advice. If it sounds too good to be true, it normally is.” For those who receive a foreign lottery letter

Responding to just one foreign lottery offer will open the door to many more bogus offers for lottery or investment “opportunities,” according to the BBB. The respondents’ names will be added to “sucker lists” that fraudulent telemarketers buy and sell. In both Canada and the United States, it’s illegal to play a foreign lottery — either by mail, phone or Internet. Don’t add insult to injury by inviting federal charges, the BBB recommends.

Score Card

Trimble, Cain combine on one-hitter Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Matt Trimble and James Cain joined forces on a one hitter, propelling the Coquitlam Reds to a 2-0 victory over the Nanaimo Pirates Sunday in B.C. Premier Baseball League action. The left-handed Trimble tossed 108 pitches over sixplus innings to collect his fourth victory, striking out 10 batters in the process. The performance cut his leagueleading earned runs average to 0.80 over 33.2 innings. “(Trimble) had a real good outing. He walked a few but he threw his pitches and Nanaimo couldn’t hit them,” Reds manager Kyle Williams said. “He never would have gone to 108 pitches to start the seventh if he didn’t have a no-hitter. They got that hit off him and we changed (pitchers).” In the first game of a doubleheader at Mundy Park, Coquitlam got on the board in the fifth when outfielder Giordi Molinari walked and scored on Greg Labranche’s groundout. Second baseman Kyle Joel, who would finish a perfect 3for-3 at the plate, drove in the second run an inning later for some insurance. The Pirates posted their only hit to lead off the seventh against Trimble. A Port Coquitlam product, Trimble gave way to Cain. The righthanded reliever stepped in and recorded the three outs on six pitches for the save. Nanaimo earned a split in the series with a 10-3 victory in the nightcap, erasing a 3-2 Reds lead with four runs in the top of the third, and three more in the sixth. T.J. Watson took the loss, lasting just two innings and surrendering five earned runs. Coquitlam has won 10 of its past 13 games. The Reds’ next action is tomorrow, 6:30 p.m. at Mundy Park, against North Shore.

Saints on losing skid

It hasn’t been an easy road for the Port Coquitlam Saints. The B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League team has struggled out of the gate, losing seven of their first 10 games. PoCo was handed two more setbacks, falling 16-7 to Victoria and 13-10 to Delta on the weekend. On Sunday, Victoria erased a 3-2 deficit with six straight tallies to lead 12-5 after two periods. Jimmy Delaney scored twice for the Saints. The Saints’ next test is a tough one, taking on undefeated Coquitlam tonight, 8 p.m., at the Coquitlam Sports Centre.

FIRST IN LINE: Vancouver Whitecaps’ Monica Lam-Fiest, right, fends off Colorado FC’s Christie Ernhardt during Sunday’s 2-1 Vancouver win at Percy Perry Stadium. The club’s only game in Coquitlam kicked off the Whitecaps’ W-League season.

Adanacs’ backup goalies eager and ready Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com You couldn’t ask for more diverse backgrounds, but both players’ paths led to the Coquitlam Adanacs’ crease. New Jersey native Ginny Capicchioni and Port Coquitlam teen Dylan Kuppan are now members of an elite group — as goalies in the Western Lacrosse Association. The pair were called to duty on the weekend when the senior A Adanacs’ backup goalie dilemma forced their hand — resulting in Kuppan’s debut. With veteran Chris Levis unavailable due to business commitments, and the signing of Ontario native Nick Rose being held up due to a transfer battle with Brooklin, 3-2 Coquitlam has just one goalie — veteran Brandon Atherton — to their name. Coquitlam dropped both games, Saturday 13-11 to Langley, and Sunday 11-8 to Maple Ridge, but neither was a result of goaltending. Capicchioni became the first female to dress for a Western Lacrosse Association

contest on Saturday, seven years after becoming the first woman to play in the National Lacrosse League. Kuppan, meanwhile, at 17, ranks right up there as one of the youngest. And perhaps the most fearless. “I got a bit excited and then I was nervous,” Kuppan said about being asked to be a last-minute substitute Sunday in Maple Ridge. “It was a good game and things were going fine, then it all went the other way.” A member of the intermediate A Burnaby Lakers, Kuppan was called less than an hour to game time with Capicchioni back in New Jersey and emergency junior-aged backup Brodie MacDonald unavailable due to an injury. That resulted in a call for an emergency-emergency backup. The 17-year-old’s baptism into the WLA came when Atherton was tossed from the game at 14:37 of the second period after leaving his crease during an opposite-end melee. At five-foot-nine and 160-pounds, Kuppan has been tested mightily at the intermediate level, facing 50-to-60 shots a game. But it’s a huge jump to the

senior level against pro calibre players. “I was a bit nervous seeing how fast and how big (the players) are, but after the first few shots it was just like any other game,” he said. “The shots were the same, just a lot harder.” In his 25 minutes of action, Kuppan turned aside 15 of 20 shots, including a huge stick save late in the second period. Adanacs coach Neil Doddridge said there was some concern when Atherton was thrown out, but there was none after the stand-in stared down a couple of shooters. “On the bench I remember turning to him and thinking to myself, ‘Boy, he’s really young looking.’ But he really did a good job for us,” Doddridge said. The team changed its defensive strategy and actually kept pace in what was a 5-5 game over the final 25 minutes. Coquitlam, who was without Ben Prepchuk and Peter Veltman, got a four-goal game from Dane Dobbie in the penalty-filled game that saw five players handed game misconducts. Kuppan said he was pretty sore the next day in PE class, and had a hard time convincing some of his Terry Fox

classmates about how he spent Sunday evening. “They didn’t believe me at first… But my mom was posting a lot about it on Facebook.” While Kuppan showed that he could fit the bill in a pinch, the club will have Capicchioni back for practice tomorrow, and plan on having her on the bench in Saturday’s test against undefeated New Westminster (7 p.m., at the Coquitlam Sports Centre). The 30-year-old member of the U.S. national development team arrived on the Adanacs doorstep thanks to a tip from Tri-City senior B Bandits general manager Mike Petrie. Capicchioni has played recently in the Ontario major and senior B circuits, honing her skills for the next test. “As far as goalies go, you can only go as high as the level of the shots you face, so that’s what I’m here for,” Capicchioni told The NOW in a telephone interview Monday from her home in Oradell, NJ. “(Coquitlam) is very professionally run organization, they’ve been really

Ducks deliver bronze at u15 nationals

The Coquitlam Ducks were more like underdogs entering last weekend’s National Club 15-and-under volleyball championships in Calgary. They exited with a bronze medal. The Ducks put their best feet forward and climbed the charts as the 21st seed to collect some well-deserved hardware. Having finished fifth at the B.C. championships, Coquitlam kicked off the 32-team tourney with a hot stretch of round-robin wins, starting with a 2-0 victory over the Saskatchewan champs. After topping clubs from Alberta and Manitoba, the Ducks sat first in pool play entering power pool action.

They knocked off the Vancouver Sting 2-0, Abbotsford’s CVC 2-1 and NAVC of Edmonton 2-0. In the quarterfinals, Coquitlam crossed paths with the NAVC Pandas, who a year ago handed the Ducks a disappointing loss in the natioal bronze medal match. After dropping the first game, the local crew bounced back with back-to-back victories for a satisfying 2-1 triumph. It put the Ducks into the semifinals, where they were the last B.C. team standing. Despite giving an all-out effort, the gold-medal run ended with a 2-0 loss (2519, 25-20) to the Calgary Dinos. Although ruffled, Coquitlam smoothed

its feathers for the bronze battle, defeating Sherwood Park 2-0 (25-16, 25-23) for its first-ever medal at the nationals. “Our team played very well, kept their composure during high pressure situations and were able to execute at key situations,” said head coach Ryan Vijandre. Setter Samantha Thompson was named to the all-star team, having delivered both consistency on the court and strong leadership. Also making major contributions in the run were Brittany Aldridge, Madison Burt, Keegan Clemens, Nicole Cornwall, Katie Devanay, Gabby Fortin, Kaela Nedeljkovic, Ondraya Swanson and Alex Vrapciu.

Peewees, midget mine gold at Dogwood boxla tourney

A pair of Coquitlam minor lacrosse teams carted off gold at last week’s 26th annual Dogwood Lacrosse tournament. Led by golden performances from the peewee A1-1 and midget A1 squads, the host association collected four medals on the long weekend. The peewee A1-1 Adanacs bested Langley 11-8 in the final, with goalie Matthew Caseley picking up the MVP award. Earlier, they bested Port Moody

also made it to the podium, topping Westshore 6-5 in overtime for the bronze.

17-7, South Edmonton 21-0 and Westshore 7-5. It was a similar story for the midget A1 Adanacs, who upended Langley 8-3 in the final despite a lineup depleted by injury. Netminder Giulio Del Bianco was extremely sharp in backstopping the decision. Coquitlam’s bantam A1 squad edged New Westminster 4-3 in overtime in the semifinal before settling for silver. The peewee A1-A2 Adanacs

PORT COQUITLAM

Jack Cowie was sensational in kicking out more than 25 shots, leading the Port Coquitlam bantam C Saints to a 4-1 victory over New Westminster last week. Cowie allowed just one goal, which came with 2:12 left in the game, to set the tone.

Riley Zaporozan and Henry Zhang both contributed on the scoresheet, while Jordan Palk was a force for the Saints. • Behind Reaghan Chadwick’s seven-goal effort, the PoCo girls midget lacrosse team beat Delta 12-7 last week. Chipping in with two goals apiece were Zoey Chan and Danita Stroup, while Courtney Washington also tallied. Kaity Vanderkooy contributed three assists.

CHAIR’S REPORT Stephanie Booth Chamber Chair

We have just witnessed our democratic system in full swing with the recent bi-elections in both Coquitlam and Anmore. Congratulations to both Helen Anderson and Neal Nicholson on their successful campaigns. Having attended the “All Candidates” meeting in Coquitlam, it was interesting to see that all the candidates cam-

paigned on very safe platforms including the environment and transportation. Not one candidate tried to tackle a more thorny issue such as the “Business Vote”. In the eyes of our legal system a business is a person, yet in our democratic process a business does not have the right to vote. Businesses lost that right in 1993. Businesses pay healthy taxes to the municipalities. Shouldn’t they be able to vote and have a say in how their money is spent? We have taxation without representation and this needs to change. This isn’t a case of giving one person more than one vote, it’s clearly one vote for each person. Every person that pays their fair CHAIR’S REPORT continuted on page 2
