New lead in Sunday stabbing Simone Blais

An attempted purse snatching offers investigators new clues in a stabbing that played out in a PoCo McDonald’s last weekend. Coquitlam RCMP were called to the Ottawa Street restaurant around 9 a.m. Sunday, and officers arrived to find a man suffering from stab wounds. The 36-year-old PoCo resident had been eating breakfast with his family when the attack occurred. The victim had gone to the washroom, where he was allegedly robbed. Police say the attack spilled out into the main part of the restaurant, where a man stabbed the victim three times in the abdomen. A witness intervened, and the suspect ran away. “There were patrons in the restaurant, but it was not overly busy at the time,” said RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet. “There were witnesses to the incident, and it’s unknown whether the victim’s family witnessed the attack — but they were definitely with him after he had been stabbed.” The victim was reportedly in serious yet stable condition when taken to hospital. “[Monday] he was still in the hospital and walking about and feeling better,” Paquet said. “It’s a very lucky outcome, and we expect him to be just fine.” Investigators believe the suspect is linked to a silvercoloured Dodge pickup truck reported stolen from Surrey the night before, and as details of the vehicle became  CONT.

Group home changes worry family Opposition says BC Liberals plan to make $22 million worth of cuts John Kurucz Devastating, drastic and depressing. Those are just a few of the words that come to Andrew Latta’s mind when he considers the life his mentally disabled sister could face if a series of rumoured provincial budget cuts take effect in group homes across B.C. Andrew’s 48-year-old sister Susan has Down syndrome and other challenges related to her ability

to communicate. She’s lived in a supported group home on Rochester Avenue in Coquitlam for almost 20 years, and it’s through that setting that she’s made tangible strides towards successfully integrating into the community. However, Andrew and others in his family fear that those tenets of independence, trust and comfort will disappear should a series of provincial funding cuts close down the home Susan and two others live in. “Susan’s been living there for almost 20 years; she’s very, very happy, very well served and she

wouldn’t be doing as well as she would without the services and supports that she’s getting,” he told The NOW. “What the government is about to do is kick her out of her home, take away all those services — and it’s going to be devastating to her life.” Andrew was reacting to news that Community Living BC (CLBC) is in the process of conducting a “service level redesign,” meant to address a six-percent growth in demand for services this year. “Redesigning service delivery to be cost-effective  CONTINUED ON PAGE 3, see NDP SAYS CHANGES.

After-school program facing crunch Jennifer McFee


n after-school program is seeking community support to maintain operations as a funding crunch looms. The Kateslem After School Program offers a safe environment for at-risk youth at Banting and Como Lake middle schools. The non-profit group provides services from 3 to 5:30 p.m. each weekday, as well as extra activities on Pro-D days for the 11- to 14-year-old participants. The United Way provided Kateslem with three years of funding, which is set to run out in June 2011. As a result, the group is looking for ways to raise $100,000 to cover annual operating costs. Executive director Karyn Bell said Kateslem’s first fundraiser is a Walk to Protect Kids, scheduled for Friday afternoon. “We have our kids and staff and board members out raisPaul vanPeenen/NOW ing pledges,” Bell said. “We’re hoping to raise money for next Karyn Bell co-ordinates the Kateslem After School Program at Banting and Como Lake Middle Schools.

CLBC service providers agreed to work with CLBC to identify individuals we currently support who may be able to live more independently or who

could be supported more effectively in another setting.” The NDP takes a different perspective. The party’s critic for housing and social development suggested Monday that the redesign is simply a cost-cutting move meant to shave $22 million from the CLBC budget. “Families are worried for their loved ones,” Shane Simpson, MLA for Vancouver-Hastings, said in a press release. “Everyone deserves a safe and welcoming home.

Purse snatching attempt fails GRAND OPENING SALE



public, more information was reported to police. Paquet said a silver truck was spotted an hour before the stabbing driving on Whiting and Appian ways. The truck was following a 43-yearold Coquitlam woman who was walking down the street. The woman noticed that the older-model Dodge truck was following her before it pulled up alongside her. A young woman jumped out of the pickup and tried to grab the woman’s purse. “The victim resisted giving away the purse, at which point the female suspect got back inside the vehicle and the vehicle left,” Paquet said, adding that the woman was not harmed as a result of the attempted purse snatching. “A male driver was observed.

Evergreen No. 1: TransLink

We would like to respond to your Sept. 24 editorial “A tram? What about the Evergreen Line?,” in part to assure your readers that the Evergreen Line is still TransLink’s priority and focus. Efforts are forthcoming shortly to identify ways we can fulfill the region’s pledge to fund its share of the line, and construction will begin next year. Part of managing Metro Vancouver’s transportation network, even when fundTo The ing for growth isn’t available, is ensuring plans are in place for the next wave of expansion. TransLink’s plans stretch out to 2040 so that people across the region can see what will need to be done to support the million more people who will

live here by then. So, although the money isn’t in place to build them, TransLink is actively planning rapid transit extensions in Surrey and along the Broadway corridor to UBC, as well as upgrades to double the capacity on the Expo Line. The idea of a tram is, as you noted, “intriguing,” and TransLink has asked for a report to determine whether the idea can actually work. Editor If and when it gets built depends on a number of factors, but the Evergreen Line is first in line when funds to expand are in place. Ken Hardie TransLink Communications

Our View

Why the sudden interest in the UN?


rime Minister Stephen Harper is making a big push to get Canada elected to the United Nations Security Council. The prime minister openly pitched the True North in a speech in New York last week, and surely there is a corresponding amount of international horse trading going on behind the scenes. It’s an unexpected effort from a government that has shown little interest in the UN and, frankly, not a great deal of interest in foreign policy as a whole. On most of the big global issues — climate change, trade, conflict in the Middle East — the Conservatives seem fairly content to tread whatever path the Americans are taking. While not particularly inspiring, this is a policy rooted in realism. So why the sudden urge to sit at the grownups’ table? How will Canadians be better off by having a vote on the most important issues confronting the international community? In short, we won’t. There’s a certain patriotic satisfaction to seeing Canada move in the most senior of circles at the UN, but let’s be honest: When has a Security Council resolution mattered to anyone? Whenever Iran, North Korea or another wayward state does something dangerous, there’s a predictable “condemnation” and then exactly nothing happens. Council resolutions add a nice air of legitimacy when the Americans really want to crack heads together, but it’s not like they won’t go to war without one. So perhaps it’s not that big a departure for Harper after all. Even if Canada does win a two-year term, don’t expect us to fall out of step with our cousins to the south.

No cuts, minister says Re: “Cuts to autism services cost us all in the long run,” letter to the editor, Friday, Sept. 24. I recognize that changes announced to autism programs last fall have not been easy on families who were previously enrolled in the Early Intensive Behavioural Intervention (EIBI) program. However, there is a balance we have to strike between available funding and our ability to serve as many children and youth as possible in a ministry in which every service area is facing increased demand. EIBI served 70 children from across the province on a first-come, firstserved basis at an annual cost of $5 million. Re-directing that funding into the autism program area has allowed the ministry to Editor increase funding support to more than 900 children under the age of six who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, from $20,000 to $22,000 annually. It will also serve to create an autism outreach program which will help improve access to professional services — particularly in rural areas. To suggest there have been funding cuts to autism services, as Reid Johnson does, is simply wrong. Autism program funding is at an all-time high of $46 million. Over the course of the past year, ministry staff has worked with service providers and families to create a transition plan for every child enrolled in the EIBI program — and to ensure the transition process went as smoothly as possible. We are committed to providing funding to support every child with autism in every region of B.C., and the changes of a year ago accomplish that goal.

Re: “Historic day or another false start?” Friday, Sept. 24. B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell wants the public to answer the question of how TransLink should come up with additional funds to pay for projects like the Evergreen Line. My suggestion to that question is as follows: Many charity organizations raise considerable amounts of cash by launching lotteries for certain periods. TransLink or the provincial government should consider a “Mega Evergreen Funding Lottery” for, say, three to five years to raise $400 million or more. Instead of vehicle levies, higher fuel taxes, fare hikes, tolls, etc., which the public finds burdensome, a lottery would be the best option. Lottery buying is completely voluntary and, therefore, no one gets upset. The lottery should be of mega-proportions — for example, with prizes of up to $25 million to $50 million. The cost of each lottery ticket could be in the range of $1, $5 or $10. The draw for this type of lottery could be biweekly. I am confident the public would certainly welcome this type of option willingly. Even for other TransLink projects, such as the gondola proposal to Simon Fraser University, the rapid transit extension to Surrey/Langley and the rapid transit extension to UBC, all can be funded easily in similar ways. People purchase lottery tickets such as Lotto Max and 6/49 regularly; therefore, I see no reason for this lottery ticket to be any different. Nanu J. Dastur Port Moody

column regarding the Evergreen Line. Like Mr. Donnelly, I too am looking forward to TransLink arriving at their solutions for their funding gap for the Evergreen Line. However, as Mr. Donnelly should know, the federal government has already allocated the full amount of funding requested from the provincial government for the Evergreen Line. The business plan for the Evergreen Line calls on the federal government to contribute $416.7 million towards the project. In our first budget after the business plan for the Evergreen Line was tabled, our government committed $416.7 million towards the project. Every dime that has been asked of the federal government, we have delivered. Also worth noting, the NDP voted against the budget that delivered this funding for the Evergreen Line. While I remain frustrated at To The TransLink’s slowness in making their commitment to this project, I am also frustrated by politicians who mislead the public and vote against funding for the very project they claim is their top priority. What’s worse, while Mr. Donnelly claims the Evergreen Line is his top priority, in the year since he was elected, he has never raised the issue with me or any of my cabinet colleagues, and he has never raised the issue in Parliament. I am proud to have delivered every dime of federal funding for this project that has been requested, and I will continue working with the B.C. government and TransLink to see this project is finished. What is needed now is real action by TransLink to match the commitment already made by the federal government, not more empty posturing. James Moore MP for Port Moody-WestwoodPort Coquitlam

and she’ll be placed in foster care instead. “She’s going to lose all her social support, she’s going to lose all her emotional support and she’s not going to get the service and support she needs: the medication she needs, the doctors appointments, getting out into the community,” he said. “She’s going to become a prisoner of her bedroom and isolated. She’s going to become withdrawn and depressed. It’s going to be a nightmare.” Adding insult to injury is the timeline attached to Susan’s impending move. Her family has been told by the province that she’ll have to be out of the Coquitlam home and into

foster care by November, although her family members have been advised by those in the health-care field that such a move could take up to a year to successfully complete. “I’m her older brother. I’ve known her for her entire 48 years. I see what goes into supporting her, and I see how fragile her success is,” Andrew said. “So if you take away her supports, you throw them to the wolves and start bouncing these people around in foster care, this is going to do irreparable damage.” Simon Fraser Society for Community Living’s Scott also expressed concerns. “We’re concerned a little bit about timeline,” she said, “and that the timelines are responsible and that good process be followed.”

Your BC Lions — In Their Own Words Paris Jackson - 19 I was born and raised in North Vancouver and live year-round in the Lower Mainland with my family – so I suppose you could call me a true hometown Lion! I began playing football while attending high school at Carson Graham Secondary and it became my passion – in fact, I set the school’s single-game record for most rushing yards and touchdowns. From early on, I knew I wanted football to be in my future, so focusing on that goal kept me motivated to get good grades and attend university so I’d have the best opportunity to realize my dream. Following my college career at Utah, I was fortunate to be drafted by my hometown BC Lions – a team that I had been inspired by since childhood. After eight seasons with the Black and Orange, I can tell you that having this job is a dream come true. I was fortunate to be part of the team that brought the Grey Cup home to BC in 2006 – the warm welcome we received when we stepped off the plane is a feeling I’ll never forget. As a lifelong B.C. resident, I know British Columbians love their football, which is why it is my mission to do whatever I can on offence to win another championship for the CFL’s best fans. Growing up, I remember what it felt like to look to professional athletes for inspiration, which is a big reason why I love taking part in our club’s community initiatives. Among the programs I take part in, I would say the Timbits Camp is one of the most rewarding because it gives me a good feeling to teach young kids about the game I love and was introduced to right here in British Columbia.

Seniors invited to free shredding event on Saturday, Oct. 2 Home Instead Senior Care will host a shredding session for seniors on Saturday, Oct. 2 in Coquitlam. The event will feature free access to a Cyclone Shredding truck so seniors can shred old bills and other documents. Klear Out will have a truck onsite to remove empty cardboard boxes used to carry the

materials, and Belvedere Care Centre representatives will be on hand to help with registration and direct everyone. “A daily accumulation of possessions combined with a daily influx of junk mail, bills and newspapers can overwhelm seniors who may already be struggling physically, mentally or

emotionally,” Home Instead’s Christine Till said in a press release. “This is a great opportunity for family caregivers to help seniors differentiate between happy memories and household hazards.” Registration is required. Seniors are asked to register and pick up a

free shredding coupon at any of the following Tri-Cities seniors centres: Centre Bel Age, Kyle Centre, Wilson Centre, Glen Pine Pavilion or Dogwood Pavilion. The shredding event will take place from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Glen Pine Pavilion, 1200 Glen Pine Crt. in Coquitlam.

Arts & Entertainment

Tri-Cities host performances, new exhibit


t’s a busy week in the Tri-Cities arts and entertainment scene, with a Crossroads Hospice Coffeehouse performance set for Friday, dance auditions set for Saturday, a new exhibit at the Evergreen Cultural Centre — and several big names planning performances. Canadian satirist Lorne Elliott has a show Friday, John Kurucz and musicians Barney Bentall, Tom Taylor and Shari Ulrich will perform Saturday. For details on these and other events, read on.

Arts in Brief

Cluster B’s draw on unique influences

Combining their fortes in music and mental health, the Cluster B’s will head up Friday’s Crossroads Coffeehouse performance at Port Coquitlam’s Leigh Square. Driven by a “passion for music and a desire to help raise awareness of mental health issues,” the trio consists of Lyndsay Ferguson (guitar, banjo and mandolin), Joy Masuhara (percussion) and Esther Thompson (banjo and guitar). Friday’s show kicks off at 7:30 p.m. with an open mic session before the Cluster B’s take to the stage at 9 p.m. Admission is $5 with all proceeds going to the Crossroads Hospice Society.

A capella show Saturday

Dance centre hosts auditions

Coquitlam-based Tri-City Dance Centre will host auditions this weekend for an upcoming performance of Alice in a Winter Wonderland. Slated for Saturday, Oct. 2 at 98 Brigantine Dr. in Coquitlam, the auditions will be held at varying times of the day depending on age: seven- to nine-year-olds will audition at 12:30 p.m.; 10- to 12-year-olds get their shot at 2:30 p.m. and teens 13 and older are scheduled for 4:30 p.m. All callbacks will take place later that day at 6:30 p.m. Dancers are asked to bring shoes for every style of dance they currently train in, and those interested in singing parts should be ready to sing “We Wish You A Merry Christmas.” The production of Alice in a Winter Wonderland will come to light at Port

Paul vanPeenen/NOW

STATEMENT ON PEACE: Amy Loewan’s exhibit, Illuminating Peace, opened Friday at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam. The Alberta artist created the installation by weaving into large rice paper panels words she considers vital to fostering relationships: compassion, kindness, respect, understanding, patience, tolerance, gentleness and forgiveness. The words appear in more than 35 languages. The exhibit, which runs through Nov. 13, is open Monday to Saturday from noon to 5 p.m. Coquitlam’s Terry Fox Theatre on Dec. 4 and Burnaby’s Shadbolt Centre for the Arts on Dec. 5. For more info, see

Soloists come together as one

Temporarily abandoning the solo route for the collective one, three popular Canadian musicians will take to the stage of Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre this weekend. Barney Bentall, Tom Taylor and Shari Ulrich will head up an evening’s worth of “downhome kitchen party” tunes on Saturday, Oct. 2, and the performance will include songs from each respective artist’s solo career, as well as cover tunes. Tickets range in price from $20 to $38, and can be purchased by calling 604-927-6555.

Indie music showcase in PoCo

Four of the company’s artists — Roger Schmidt, Steven Koenig, KerryLee Manuel and Angelina — will perform at the event, representing an evening’s worth of R&B, rock, country and contemporary music. Saturday’s show kicks off at 6:30 p.m. and tickets can be purchased by logging onto www.

Lorne Elliott visits Coquitlam

Known for his ability to take on comedy, music and storytelling, popular Canadian satirist Lorne Elliott will bring his new oneman show, The Upside of the Downturn, to Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre on Friday, Oct. 1. Elliott’s newest show plays on the term “downturn” and the myriad of forms it can refer to, from the global financial context, to new forms of media or the fact that politicians are “now actually out to get us.” “I’m always writing new material. New stuff emerges, pushes old stuff out, old stuff resurfa-

Grant deadline is Thursday

Arts, culture and heritage organizations have until tomorrow (Thursday, Sept. 30) to apply for grants from the City of Port Coquitlam. The maximum funding allotted is 50 per cent per project up to $2,500, $5,000 per year to one group, or up to 25 per cent of an annual budget for established organizations applying for operating assistance. Applications can be e-mailed to Yvonne Chui at

Westwood Centre for Dental Wellness

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.

ces and gets put back in with new twists added to it, themes and threads and monologues interweave in new ways, which in turn, engender other ideas,” Elliott said in a press release. “The only criteria which are hopefully achieved is that when an audience leaves, they’re saying, ‘Well, that was worth it.’” Tickets for the show range in price between $20 and $38, and can be purchased by calling 604-927-6555 or visiting www.myevergreen. org.

TINY SEED NO MORE: Five-year-old Joshua’s first attempt at gardening has been a big success. After bringing home a seedling from Pinetree Preschool last spring, Josh grew a sunflower plant measuring, at last count, nine feet, six inches tall.

THE WILD LIFE: Barb Mulligan shot this photo of a mother bear and two cubs (above), which have been spotted regularly in her Martin Street neighbourhood in northeast Coquitlam. “We’re careful not to go close to them — they always leave when they see us and we’d like to keep it that way,” she wrote in an e-mail. “So far, the only damage they’ve done (that I know of) is the mom walked right over a young dogwood tree and bent it.” Meanwhile, Robert Sell has been using his camera to capture images of great grey owls (right) in Minnekhada Regional Park. He says the birds appear to be mating.

Making time for fitness may not be as hard as you think

Stick close to home or work when choosing your fitness centre. The convenience will help you stay on track. Remember when you had to come up with reasons not to exercise? You didn’t have your favourite running shoes, socks or hair elastic; you were tired of the music mix on your iPod; you thought you felt a sniffle coming on; or frankly, you just didn’t feel like it. Those days are over. Now, even finding time to make up excuses is a luxury. You’ve got proposals

and projects to finish, kids to pick up, bills to pay, meals to make; though you know working out is good for you, you don’t have time. Really. As impossible as it seems, there are ways to add fitness back into your busy life, it simply requires flexibility and a bit of determination. 1. Set reasonable goals. Studies show that a little bit of exercise every

Have you checked your Child?

day — even 30 minutes — helps to improve cardiovascular health, offer some measure of protection against Alzheimer’s disease, control blood-sugar levels in diabetes and stave off some cancers. But if 30 minutes a day is too daunting to begin with, start with less. Don’t let the notion that you must do all or nothing throw you off track. Aim to exercise two to three times a week, and add more sessions as you find ways to fit it in. 2. Be flexible with your workout schedule. Many fitness trainers recommend working out first thing. Morning exercisers are more consistent; getting it out of the way early means you’re less likely to be sidetracked by that busy schedule. But for many families, mornings are hectic and trying to squeeze a workout in is impossible. Research actually shows there are benefits to working out at any time of day. Make use of your lunch break — play a quick game of racquetball, make a speedy gym visit, go for a jog or take a brisk walk. Even better, hit the gym before heading home. Studies show the optimal time to exercise is when body temperature is at its highest, which, for most people is 4 to 5 p.m.; strength and endurance are greater in the afternoon and injuries are the least likely. Even if you can’t make it to the gym or a yoga class until after dinner, don’t fret. One recent study showed that vigorous exercise even half an hour before bedtime did not affect sleep. 3. Keep it short and intense. In March, new research from scientists at McMaster University was published in The

Journal of Physiology showing that short term high-intensity interval training (HIT) is a timeefficient but safe alternative to traditional types of exercise. HIT means doing a number of short bursts of intense exercise with short recovery breaks in between. The authors showed it produces the same physical benefits as conventional long duration endurance training despite taking much less time. Any type of cardio exercise can be used for an HIT workout including running, swimming, walking, jumping rope or the use of equipment such as a treadmill, elliptical or stair-stepper. 4. Exercise without exercising at all. Hate the gym? Loathe running? You can still get your workout in by doing things you like or would do anyway. Household and garden chores, brisk walking, ballroom dancing, cycling and playing with your children or grandchildren still count as vigorous activity. Do a little every day and you can skip the stuff you hate. 5. Find exercise that’s convenient. Don’t join that fancy gym across town . . . you’ll never go. Instead, sign up for spin or Pilates classes at your nearest recreation centre; seek out the yoga studio closest to your home or work; or hire a trainer that will come to you. Lower Mainland company Fitness on the Go ( sends their trainers and equipment out to clients’ homes or work. There is something that will work for you, and if you like it, you’ll do it. So find a workout that’s convenient and that you enjoy, and make a promise to yourself that you’ll stick with it. DEANA LANCASTER

One of my employees has informed me she is being sexually harassed by a co-worker. What should I do?

An employer has a duty to ensure that a workplace is free of sexual harassment and should have a detailed harassment policy in place. In addition, the employer should ensure that the harassment policy is consistently enforced. You must take steps to investigate this situation and prevent any future harassment or you could face liability under human right laws. You must act carefully, however, as both the complainant and the co-worker have certain rights. An employment lawyer can help you prepare a harassment policy, advise on conducting an investigation into the allegations, and suggest how to restore a healthy work environment.

Depth at QB gives Cents a nice dilemma Dan Olson When Centennial Centaurs head coach Ryk Piche thinks about his options, he isn’t just calling an offensive play. Because of the depth on his roster, the gridiron boss is weighing some intriguing choices — how best to utilize the quarterbacking talents of Bobby Posphischil, Cole Milton and Marco Mihic. Injuries and illnesses during the past two weeks turned the QB job to Milton, a Grade 11 who looked composed beyond his years in Saturday’s 54-6 hammering of the Rutland Voodoo. He accounted for two touchdowns on the ground, gained 120 yards through the air, and carried the ball for another 106 yards to lead a very strong attack. Not bad for someone who began the preseason slotted in as the team’s No. 3 pivot. “Cole Milton has made me extremely proud and really opened my eyes,” Piche said. “He has shown a lot of perseverance and that he’s not going to fold under adversity.” A week earlier, Milton came in early when Pospischil went down after a late hit, and Mihic was unavailable due to an illness. Demonstrating a lot of poise under pressure, the pivot for last year’s B.C. junior football championship steered the Cents past Double-A No. 2-ranked Sands 12-9 on Mark Sabarre’s 20-yard TD. Trouncing the Voodoo in such a fashion really opened Piche’s eyes on the interesting dilemma he has. “He’s played in tough situations before (with the juniors), so I felt bad for him being No. 3 on our depth chart. Now that we’ve seen him play this has me really thinking — I can’t have him off the field so we’ll need to juggle things.” Piche said the options include going to a two-quarterback system, where each gets their time in the pocket. It’s also possible that Pospischil’s versatility — both on offence and defence — will make  CONT. ON P. 24, see LUND, SABARRE...

WATCHING YOUR CHECK: Coquitlam Express captain Garrick Perry, right, pushes past Surrey Eagles defenceman Doug Wedel Friday during the Coquitlam’s home opener. The Express outlasted their Coastal Division rival, thanks to a pair of unassisted goals in the third, for a 4-2 win.

Express convert first homestand into four points Dan Olson The friendly confines of the Poirier Sports Centre proved to be a good fit for the Coquitlam Express during their inaugural homestand of 2010-11. The BC Hockey League squad racked up victories of 4-2 and 5-1 over the Surrey Eagles and Merritt Centennials respectively, while giving the hometown fans their first glimpse of junior hockey in five years. And although the Express dropped the last game of the weekend — a 7-3 defeat in Surrey on Sunday — the positives so far outweigh the negatives. “It was a great home opener, the boys were anxious and eager to play before their fans, to see what kind of crowd we’d get,” remarked Coquitlam coach Jon Calvano. “I think once the nerves settled down, they did what they had to do.” Facing division rival Surrey for the first of seven encounters over the next month, the Express took

advantage of the tight, 80-foot wide ice surface. Two days later, the Eagles would rule their own Olympicsized 100-feet-wide roost. Friday’s contest was a game of firsts in the return of junior A hockey to Coquitlam — with Jason Grecica cashing in the first goal on a rebound to put the Express ahead 4:37 into the game. The Eagles’ Riley Sweeney took the first penalty, leading to Coquitlam’s second goal, by sniper Brad Reid midway through the first period. Surrey tied the game with a pair of powerplay markers in the middle frame, but the Express maintained its slight edge in play going into the final period. Just five minutes into the third, defenceman Erik Cooper, under pressure from Reid, gifted Alex Petan with a cross-ice giveaway just inside Surrey’s blueline that the 18-year-old winger fired behind Andrew Hunt. Coquitlam captain Garrick Perry would ice it with an empty netter on another giveaway to complete the offence.

On Saturday, Reid tallied twice, with singles from Steven Axford, Austin Carroll and Perry to propel the Express into a 5-0 lead before surrendering a late marker to Merritt. Luke Hernandez kicked out 29 shots and was only beaten by a well-screened point shot. Zac Ashdown and Riley McIntosh registered a pair of assists each in the club’s fourth win of the season. And while Sunday’s setback — where the Eagles scored three unanswered goals in the third period — took some of the wind out of the Express’ sails, Calvano says the 4-2-1 club has made progress. “We’re getting scoring from quite a few places, from every line so that has really made it difficult to focus on one (player),” he noted. “Riley McIntosh has really been a horse for us, played a lot of minutes, and the addition of veteran (defenceman) Matt Mazzarolo last week has really been a nice blessing for us.” The Express will get another shot at Surrey tonight at the Sports Centre, before playing host to the Langley Chiefs Saturday. Both games start at 7 p.m.

Basara in camp

Coquitlam’s Marcus Basara was one of 40 players who hit the ice hard this week at the Canada West evaluation camp. Made up of the top junior A hockey players in Western Canada, the players skated Monday and yesterday in hopes of earning a position on Canada West’s roster for the upcoming 2010 World Junior A Hockey Challenge, slated for November in Penticton. Basara is enjoying a hot start as a rookie in the BCHL with the defending national champion Vernon Vipers. The 5’10 forward led the Canadian midget champion Notre Dame Hounds in scoring last year with 37 goals and 28 assists in 43 games, making him a top target among hockey recruiters. But Basara chose Vernon, with an eye on maintaining his NCAA college eligibility. The 17-year-old currently sits among the team’s top-10 scorers with a goal and four assists in eight games. Paul vanPeenen/NOW

FEET FIRST: The high school runners hit Mundy Park last week for the first leg of the Coquitlam District cross country season.

Offence no issue with midget Chiefs The Vancouver Northeast Chiefs were fit to be tied on the opening weekend of B.C. Major Midget Hockey League action. The 15-17 year old squad participated in the seasonopening tournament at UBC last week and played the South Island Thunderbirds to a pair of ties, 3-3 and 5-5. Returning sniper and Coquitlam minor product Joey Santucci cashed in three goals in Sunday’s contest, where the Chiefs erased a 3-1 deficit and grabbed a two-goal lead early in the third. Truman Gonzales and Santucci scored 34 seconds apart to put the Tri-CitiesRidge Meadows crew ahead 53, but the T-birds replied with two of their own to salvage a point. Netminder Jordan Hospes faced a number of tough shots and was sharp in the draw. Maple Ridge’s Conor

Weitemeyer wins row title

Port Coquitlam’s Rob Weitemeyer teamed up with 2008 Olympic silver medallist Scott Frandsen to capture the men’s pair title at the RBC National Rowing championships in Victoria on the weekend. The two won with a time of 6:27.61, edging out rivals Will Dean and Mike Wilkinson’s 6:28.59 finish time.

be OK,” Chiefs coach Doneau Menard said. “We’re probably a little bit older as a group than last year, and we’ve got good leadership from that.” Last season, the Northeast club finished third overall with a 22-12-6 record, but were swept out in the semifinals 2-0 by the Cariboo Cougars. Key returnees include Allan, McCoach, Santucci and Tyler Martin, a defenceman from PoCo. Of the newcomers, the one who’s turned a lot of heads so far is 6’5, 190-pound Green, who was a second-round ban-

tam draft pick of the Seattle Thunderbirds. A three-point weekend for the blueliner is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his potential, Menard said. “He’s obviously, just physically, a presence and once he got use to the pace he was in his element,” the coach said of the 15 year old. The Chiefs, who call Maple Ridge’s Cam Neely Arena home, return to the ice this weekend when they visit the Vancouver Northwest Giants at the Burnaby Winter Club. Their first home game is on Oct. 9 at Cam Neely Arena.

McCoach also tallied, while Liam Pearce picked up a pair of assists. A day earlier, the Chiefs were the ones scrambling in the third, needing a marker from Coquitlam’s Nick Hermany, off a Michael Scobie setup, with 5:02 left to earn the draw. Port Coquitlam blueliner Taylor Green scored once and set up another, while Matt Allan also scored. The key to this year’s squad so far is the calibre of veterans who’ve returned for a second kick at the can. “I’m not going to toot our horn just yet, but we should

In the second quarter, Coquitlam broke it wide open following a 51-yard dash by Bryan Whittet, his first of three on the day, and Conner McKee’s conversion. Munraj Hayre’s major contributions were on defence, where he tackled White Rock’s punter and also knocked down a pass. Returning an interception for the final major was Cordell Parker.


In a tight contest against Westside, the Coquitlam peewee Wildcats came out scratching and survived 12-8. Some key plays included Nicolas Greene’s recovery of a fumble on Coquitlam’s own 34-yard line, and the defensive play of Mahammed Hassan and Jude Hussain. Halting a sure touchdown by Westside with a diving tackle was Nico DePaoli early in the game.

Ravens get five majors from Patko in win over Kelowna

The Terry Fox Ravens are flexing some considerable muscle during the Triple-A senior boys football preseason. Powered by Jacob Patko’s 164-yard, five-touchdown performance, the 3-0 Ravens cruised to a 48-27 victory over the Kelowna Owls on Friday. Patko broke open a 7-7 game with a pair of quick touchdowns — one off a nine-yard dash, the other a short yardage

push — as No. 2-rated Fox established an early 20-7 edge. It was part of a fast-paced start, which began when Patko capped a seven-play, 62-yard drive with an 18-yard run. The No. 4-ranked Owls tied it on a 51-yard passing play, but Patko replied with his second and third of the day. Ben Sharpe was instrumental in the third major, forcing a fumble in Kelowna territory.

Lund, Sabarre cash in for pair

Patko would up the lead with a 15-yard rumble, followed by quarterback Cam Canales’ 21yard scamper before the half. While the Owls cut the gap to 34-14 to start the third quarter, Guillaume Leroux ended the rally with his second interception of the day. Patko followed that with his fifth TD of the day by marching in from 22 yards to cap a 99yard drive. Adding a major was Jared

Soll, while Canales finished with 73 yards rushing and going four of 10 in passing. Colin Livingston, Sharpe and Soll each posted five tackles, while Alex Agnoletto, Bill Evans, Matteo Nardone, Jordan Wicki and Leroux netted three apiece. Fox closes out the exhibition schedule Saturday in Salmon Arm, then open the regular season Oct. 9 against St. Thomas More in Burnaby.

against B.C.’s best Fresh off a successful run at the Douglas College Invitational, the Riverside senior boys Rapids got another shot at a gamut of B.C.’s top volleyball teams on the weekend. The Port Coquitlam crew delivered a polished effort en route to a second-place showing at the 24-team MEI Invitational in Abbotsford. Their lone setback came in the final against Double-A No. 1-ranked MEI, where Riverside fell 2-0 (25-19, 25-19) in close sets. Along the way, the Rapids met a handful of other highly-rated rivals, including No. 2 Triple-A G.P. Vanier, and No. 3 Earl Marriott. Both were unceremoniously dumped. Riverside launched the pool division by fending off Surrey Christian 2-0 (25-18, 25-22) in a tight battle, then had an easier time against J.N. Burnett 2-0 (25-16, 25-19). Against Vanier, the Rapids also won in two straight, outlasting the Island squad 2522 before cleaning up 25-8. Their road took another turn once into the championship draw, following a 2-0 (25-11, 25-13) mashing of Clarence Fulton of Vernon. In the quarterfinals, Riverside survived a tough 2-0 (25-22, 25-21) seesaw against Double-A No. 5-ranked Langley Christian to advance to the semifinals against Marriott. Once again, a quick start proved advantageous, as the Rapids won the first set 25-13 and pushed on to sweep the south Surrey school with a 25-21 decision. Throughout the weekend, Riverside got top notch performances from power Victor Zych and setter Liam Brett. Delivering quick attacks and secondary support was Tyler Toscani, while Spenser Andres and Brendan Williams fired arrows from the service line. Working the backline with due diligence was Hans Seo, while front row specialist Chris Aisekhalaye provided some timely blocks. Riverside prepares for the league opener next week, and the UBC 40-team Invitational on the long weekend.


him this year’s Lemar Durant. The B.C. football MVP last year, Durant stepped into the QB job early in 2009 and marched the team to the Triple-A championship. He was originally expected to get the ball as receiver/rusher, but the decision to move him proved to work out alright. “If anything, this gives us more weapons,” Piche noted. Centennial’s lop-sided win over Rutland saw Sabarre score two times, rushing for 80 yards. Nathan Lund also scored twice, while Gr. 10 Justin Buren caught a handful of passes for 96 yards. He also pulled down three interceptions. Turning one interception into a 70-yard TD runback was Tyler Dadey. The Cents enjoy a bye this week, and spent it preparing for their Oct. 9 regular season opener against the team they bested in the B.C. final, W.J. Mouat, 7:30 p.m. at Percy Perry Stadium.
