Coquitlam mayor’s house vandalized Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart’s house has been vandalized three times since last week’s vote to rezone land for a homeless shelter in east Coquitlam. Although he wouldn’t divulge the nature of any of the incidents, Stewart told The NOW Tuesday morning that he planned to report them to the RCMP later that day. He characterized each incident, the most recent of which occurred during Monday’s council meeting, as “relatively minor” and “immature.” “That’s house, that’s home. In politics, you do try to keep the job out of home. But then someone will drive down the road and bring it home,” he said in an interview. The recent spate of vandalism comes about a month after someone uttered public threats at Stewart and councillors as they debated whether to rezone land on Gordon Avenue for a homeless shelter and transition facility. At the Nov. 1 meeting, a man was heard saying, “Remember, I’ve got your address — I’ll find you” and “I’ll leave a bucket of needles right by your door.” Despite his home being targeted, Stewart said he has not requested any extra police presence in his neighbourhood and insisted that the area is safe. “I can’t remember us having faced this sort of thing and I think it will end,” he said. “This seems like an immature response to something that angered somebody.” Coun. Doug Macdonell brought the issue to light at Monday’s council meeting, and the retired RCMP officer publicly condemned the incidents.  CONT. ON PAGE 8, see SEKORA.

CHRISTMAS MAGIC: Four-year-old Patrick gives Santa his wish list during the sixth-annual Envision Financial Light the Lake, held Sunday in Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park. The family-friendly event included an outdoor Christmas market and choirs and chorale ensembles performing on a festival stage. The event is a fundraiser for the Douglas College Foundation.

Coquitlam taxes to rise 3.18 per cent Increase works out to an extra $117 for the owner of an average home Stories by John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Coquitlam council has paved the way for the city’s lowest tax increase in five years, as property taxes are set to rise by just over three per cent next year. The city’s five-year financial plan, which passed its first three readings Monday, is highlighted by a 3.18-per-cent property tax increase ($53 for an average home worth $490,000); a seven-per-cent jump in water rates ($25); a four-per-cent hike in sewer and drainage costs ($15); and an eight-per-cent rise in solid waste rates ($24). Those numbers translate to a $117 increase over

2010 levels, and the average residential home in Coquitlam will be charged $2,679 in taxes and levies next year. City staff are expecting future property tax increases to come in at about 3.5 per cent yearly from 2012 to 2015, while last year’s tax increase was just shy of five per cent, or $182 for the average home. “Literally hundreds of hours bring us to this meeting. Decisions came following intense debate, discussions or however you would like to categorize it, but at the end of day, we have protected our core services with a clear plan for tomorrow,” said Mayor Richard Stewart. More than half of the total increase, or $64, is attributed to rising utility costs driven by increased

water rates and solid waste tipping fees set out by Metro Vancouver. Outside of those external costs, next year’s tax rates will also be driven by inflation related to contracts with city staff and the RCMP. About 66 per cent of new spending — or $770,000 — is attributed to public safety costs: four new RCMP members and an assistant fire chief, a firefighter and safety equipment. “I’m so pleased that the commitment of this council over the last couple of years has been to ensure that the safety of our residents is well looked after,” said Coun. Doug Macdonell, a former RCMP officer. Other new spending initiatives include: annual  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see TWO VOTE AGAINST.

ant to be a leader of a provincial political party? In what could be the first time in recent history, there are now two leadership openings officially available in the B.C. legislature, after Opposition leader Carole James announced Monday that she would step aside from the NDP leadership as soon as an interim leader is chosen. The announcement followed a week where a small public fracture line in the NDP ranks grew to a vast chasm in mere days. Dubbed “the baker’s dozen,” a group of 13 dissident MLAs held their ground in calling for the leader to step aside, forcing James’s hand. “Over the last two months, we’ve seen some members of our caucus decide to use their time and energy infighting instead of working on behalf of British Columbians,” James said in announcing her resignation. “I’ve spent my entire life working at building things, not complaining and taking them apart. And right now, at this point in time, my time and energy as leader is consumed with the infighting. And that’s not right.” On Monday, NDP MLA Diane Thorne (Coquitlam-Maillardville) said her “heart is broken” as she reeled from the shock of it all. “I think Carole was just worn down,” she said. “I don’t believe it will be easy to find someone of her calibre and her strength and her fairness and her understanding. I don’t think it will be easy, so it’s a major loss for the NDP.” Having had a bit more time to

It’s been a very difficult time,” he said. “At the end of the day, Carole decided to put the party’s interests ahead of her own, and I think she’s to be applauded for that.” Farnworth said the party will now

have to undertake a similar process as the Liberals are undergoing to choose a new leader. “I think the first thing we have to do is, as a party, recognize that we have to come together and I’m confident that will happen,” he said. “It’s not going to be easy. Emotions are still raw right now, but I think people recognize we have to do that.” Thorne admitted that forgiveness

might be a bit further off than she’d like. “I’m very concerned about the party’s unity,” she said. “It’s not going to be easy for me. It’s very hard for me to forget when things like this happen. Certainly, it’s one of the most difficult periods of time and ordeals that I’ve experienced in my working life, and not just in my working life, because some of these people have become my friends.” Legislative colleagues from the other side of the house were gracious in their appraisal of James. Liberal MLA Iain Black (Port MoodyCoquitlam) added he didn’t “take any joy from the announcement.” “Regardless of the rather cutting nature of this occupation, or this calling, you can’t help but be respectful and I would suggest be appreciative to do what she has done and believes in and in a manner that, frankly, has been mostly courteous and straightforward in many respects — and gracious,” he said. “You look at the individual who has given of herself. I may not agree with her ideals, and I don’t need to agree with her ideals, but I know what she has sacrificed to put those ideals forward.” “I think Carole James has done an awful lot over time, and obviously there were some people in her caucus that were not satisfied with her leadership and obviously she made the decision she made,” said Liberal MLA Douglas Horne (Coquitlam-Burke Mountain), adding that the Opposition has a chance to reinvent itself much like the Liberals do. “I think both parties will see some renewal, which is a good thing for B.C.”

Local Liberals back Kevin Falcon as leader Tri-Cities Liberal MLAs are backing Kevin Falcon to run the party and the province. Douglas Horne, Liberal MLA for Coquitlam-Burke Mountain, confirmed Tuesday that he and his crosstown counterparts are backing the Surrey-Cloverdale MLA to head up the governing party. “In my opinion, it’s about generational change. Kevin is very different,” Horne said. “I think he’s going to approach things much differently than the past, and the way he does things, the way that he leads, is considerably different than in the past.” Horne said he and caucus counterpart Iain Black (Port MoodyCoquitlam) are supporting Falcon, as are former Tri-Cities candidates

“The leadership contest is a contest and a competition within the family of the BC Liberal party. That makes it really different, because you’re competing with friends,” Black said. Despite having “long conversations” with each of them, Black said he’s backing Falcon because of how he has changed over the years. “I’ve watched him evolve from, I would say, a feisty young political organizer into a seasoned senior official of government and new dad,” he said. “You see all new dads do this. It’s been marvellous to watch that rounding side of his personality, against a backdrop of a professional who gets stuff done.” The leadership vote will take place on Feb. 26.

Canada Day celebrations, support for council advisory committees, funding for the Town Centre BMX facility, additional support for the Coquitlam Public Library, a youth co-ordinator for Place Maillardville, enhanced street tree watering and arena maintenance. Nearly every councillor suggested that the budgeting process was a “long and arduous” journey and some sacrifices were made to keep the rates at less than four per cent — namely a $1.6-million reduction in expenditures, including the elimination of three positions and vacation relief, reduced consulting expenses and a minor reduction in facility operating hours. A $1.2-million reduction in future reserve fund contributions was also included in the budget, a point that did not sit well with Couns. Barrie Lynch and Lou Sekora, who represented the lone dissenting votes. “I feel like we’ve spent more time worrying about the final appearance of the tax rate than the allocation of funds and how we actually arrived at that decision … if we’re really going to keep an eye on tomorrow, we better be worried about where the dollars are going,” Lynch said. Coun. Neal Nicholson coun-

Coun. Mae Reid added that the city isn’t pulling money out of reserves, just reducing the amount that will be placed into them. “We’re all taxpayers, and we’re all owners … of this big city,” she said. “Just like in our households, there’s a time to put money away, and there’s a time where we actually can’t afford to put money away. And these last few years have been unprecedented.”

tered Lynch’s point by saying that the tax rate was top of mind this tax season. “That’s absolutely true and it’s utterly appropriate. We constantly had an eye on how much taxes were going to go up. We knew that times were hard for us here in the city, we know that times are hard for everyone in the city,” he said. “We have to keep things to the absolute minimum and that’s what we were focused on doing.”

No off-leash park near river John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com An off-leash dog park isn’t going near Coquitlam River Park, and if it’s going to find a home in Glen Park, it won’t be for at least another two months. That was the message coming from Coquitlam council Monday, as councillors looked to add a fifth option to the city’s inventory of off-leash dog parks. A recent public consultation process indicated that the majority of participants favour Glen Park as the future City Centre off-leash site, though a master plan for the area must be developed before plans move ahead. “I’ve heard lots of people refer to [Glen Park] as their preference. But obviously I want to keep my mind open to what the residents near

the park feel,” Mayor Richard Stewart said Tuesday. Coun. Barrie Lynch said a master plan for Glen Park will be completed within two months, and after that time, more concrete deliberations will take place for the park amenities that are expected to cost about $60,000. A park master plan sets out guidelines for potential uses and how to fit those amenities into the assigned space, while also taking into account future uses for a given park. “It didn’t make a whole lot of sense for us on the committee to go forward with the off-leash area until we were able to understand fully what the rest of the park was able to encompass,” Lynch said. The city currently has four off-leash dog parks. They’re located at Bramble, Miller, Mundy and Ridge parks.

Stabbing occurs outside pub Charges are pending against a Vancouver resident after two men were stabbed outside of Woody’s on Brunette early Sunday. Police were called around 2 a.m. about a fight in progress outside the Coquitlam pub. They arrested one man at the scene, and cordoned the area off for several hours as they collected evidence outside the front of the pub. Two Burnaby men, ages 36 and 29, were taken to hospital for stab wounds. A third man, 29-year-old Robert Kowalczyk of Vancouver, was also taken to hospital. All three have since been released. Kowalczyk is facing charges of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon, and Coquitlam RCMP’s major crime section continues to investigate. “We don’t know what sparked the initial

exchange of words,” said Const. Kristina Biro, “but indications are that alcohol may have been a factor in this fight.” ••• In other police news, a local Mountie is recovering from injuries after he crashed a cruiser in Port Coquitlam Friday. Just after 4 p.m., a Coquitlam RCMP officer was responding to a call with lights and sirens activated, when he lost control of his vehicle and struck a power pole at Westwood Street and Lincoln Avenue. The officer was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital for treatment of minor injuries, and was later released. The police car was damaged extensively in the crash, which also knocked out power to surrounding neighbourhoods. No other vehicles were involved.

arious BC Liberal leadership hopefuls are launching their campaigns and floating new ideas and plans. Indeed, with several candidates promising to hike the minimum wage, it seems like real progress is coming our way — although we wonder how certain candidates can brag about their track record and influence in the legislature while proposing new policies they didn’t implement when they supposedly had the power. Soon, the NDP will begin renewing itself. Hopefully the feds will follow suit. Stephen Harper is tired. He’s the only leader the Conservatives have ever had, and his stranglehold on the party isn’t conducive to the development of new ideas. Michael Ignatieff is newer to the game; he hasn’t even gone through an election cycle. But it feels like he’s been around forever, chiefly because — despite his academic bona fides — he hasn’t brought any new ideas to the Liberal party. Jack Layton has been sporting a moustache in Parliament before it was cool. Even though we doubt a new NDP leader will make much of a difference for that party, Layton’s departure would give up-and-coming left wingers a reason to pitch new ideas and test their mettle. As for Gilles Duceppe, we have no problem with him. We want his separatist ideology to continue to stagnate. Plus, for a guy who wants to break up this country, he often seems to be the most reasonable fella in Parliament. But we hope the other three leaders — or their party caucuses, at least — take a cue from the farewells of Gordon Campbell and Carole James. Ideas and leaders are borne not out of complacency, but out of competition.

questions about her ability to lead and her ability to win. But none of her detractors could point to any current evidence that there was no way she could win the next election. Poll after poll has the NDP well ahead of the Liberals. While James has long had trouble with her approval ratings, so did Gordon Campbell while he was winning three elections. In the end, this was all about a faction of the NDP unwilling to give up control of the party and resisting James’s attempts to modernize it and move it more to the political centre. The shame of this is that it may well cost the NDP the next election. There is no doubt many people out there who do not want to give the Liberals a fourth term are now forced to look in despair at an alternative that is broken and, for now anyways, somewhat discredited. James may well have won the next election, as the centre-right coalition of the Liberals is showing its own signs of cracking. But now we’ll never know for sure. The NDP now has to go through a potentially agonizing leadership race of its own. How’s this for a scenario: the next Liberal leader calls a snap election in March, catching the NDP either leaderless or engulfed with bitter internal strife. If the NDP loses the next vote, the party can look back at the minority-led coup that took out its first female leader as it searches for the reason for the loss.

Plan is ‘just plain wrong’ Re: “Rogers moves away from plan to build cell tower at cemetery,” Wednesday, Nov. 24. Shame on Port Coquitlam’s mayor and councillors for even considering a Rogers cell tower proposal. They considered it before in the Port Coquitlam cemetery, and now they want to place this tower even closer, in Greenmount Park. The whole idea is just plain wrong, for the following reasons: 1. The proposed Rogers tower would be only 120 metres from Coquitlam River Elementary School. This ignores School District 43’s resolution, passed earlier this year, that cell towers should not be closer than 305 metres. It also ignores research that says, at the very least, they shouldn’t be closer than 500 metres. 2. Parks and natural areas are under the pressure of development. We can’t make them bigger, so we need to protect what we have. 3. Allowing this tower flies in the face of Port Coquitlam’s environmental strategy and its Vision 2020 corporate strategic plan. 4. Port Coquitlam’s own zoning bylaw says that when an area is zoned as a park, it should be protected. It shouldn’t be used for utilities, including telecom towers or commercial uses. 5. Industry Canada’s Safety Code 6, the current standard used for permits in Canada, does not address the potential threat of low intensity, long-term exposure to radiation from cell towers. 6. Every time a local government lets a cell company erect a tower where it shouldn’t be, it encourages all cell companies to use that as a precedent. The mayor and councillors need to do the right thing: keep cell towers out of our urban parks and away from schools and residential areas. Linda DuBick Coquitlam

Speak out against tower I write to you from New Denver, B.C., where Telus forced a cell tower into the middle of our village this year despite a majority of citizens and a council who were opposed to this placement. Rogers is also trying to fast track a new wireless tower in Nakusp, just north of here, before Christmas — without any public consultation — and citizens are upset. We have done an enormous amount of research into the health hazards of wireless towers which emit very high frequency microwaves. Health Canada’s safety standards (Safety Code 6) regarding the placement of these towers are some of the weakest in the world and are completely inadequate to protect us from long-term exposure to these wavelengths. To The Children, in particular, are the most sensitive to this type of radiation. Towers should not be placed anywhere near schools and certainly not 120 metres away, as I understand this tower would be from the nearest elementary school. Even your local school district has passed a resolution to keep towers at least 305 metres from schools. I understand Port Coquitlam would be defying its own environmental strategy (Vision 2020) and its bylaw regarding the use of parks if it allows this tower to go ahead. Please take care of the people and children in your jurisdiction and speak out against yet another wireless tower in a residential area. The effect of this type of radiation is cumulative, so the more towers we accept the more at risk we put ourselves. Communities around the world need to stand up to this type of corporate pressure and I urge you to do so. Julia Greenlaw New Denver, B.C.

Rogers responds I wish to respond to the Dec. 1 letter to the editor entitled “Keep cell towers out of our urban parks” and clarify a few points regarding the proposed Greenmount telecommunications monopole to be used by Rogers and Telus. The tower will upgrade our technology to improve wireless service and meet the growing needs of our customers. We have submitted a proposal to the City of Port Coquitlam and a public consultation process is now underway. We follow the process mandated by Industry Canada and it is set up to be fair, transparent and comprehensive. At the conclusion of the public comment period, Rogers will submit a formal application for council’s approval. The City of Port Coquitlam healthy community Editor committee and council will then review it and take all public input into consideration before making a decision. Rogers conducted a comprehensive assessment of sites, considering the terrain, existing structures and wireless users. The proposed tower is 62 metres, 12 metres above the tallest trees around it. Contrary to what was stated in the letter to the editor, we will not be clear cutting 1,500 square feet of the park. While it is in a natural clearing, to accommodate the monopole foundation and access road, the removal of underbrush and one or two trees will be required. Rogers will work with a city-appointed arborist as needed. I can assure you the site will be fully compliant with Health Canada Safety Code 6 regulations, which are in place for the safety of all Canadians. We encourage all local residents and businesses to submit their comments and ensure their opinions are heard. Comments on the proposal should be directed to Rogers

What’s to fear? Re: “Religious predators,” letter to the editor, Wednesday, Nov. 17. As many now gear up for Christmas, let us take pity on Kevin Wallace’s secularized soul and his fear of “religious predators” using Facebook to attract young adults between the ages of 18 and 30. The words of Francis Bacon, probably England’s first scientist, may give clarity to the problem here: “A little taste of philosophy perhaps moves one to atheism, but more of it leads back to religion.” Joerge Dyrkton Anmore

Sekora takes aim at media  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

“I’m very disappointed and that saddens me,” Macdonell said. “It’s just too bad when there are residents in the community that would take this action further than it needs to be and will take that into targeting individuals.” Coun. Lou Sekora took aim at the news media at Monday’s meeting, suggesting recent

articles and TV coverage built up unsubstantiated fear among residents. “I don’t know why it got blown out of proportion. A lot of people were scared to come here because they thought there was going to be violence,” he said. “I think that maybe a lot of the things that the politicians say to the news media and to TV stations blows this out of proportion. I think it shouldn’t happen. It’s sad. But it did happen.”

against your belly or hips. If you absolutely cannot resist the call of the cookies and chocolates, at least compensate for those extra calories by reducing your intake of other foods — temporarily. Common sense dictates that in the long term, the Twinkie diet will cause more health problems than it solves and, without a doubt, if you can minimize indulging in sweets and other high-calorie foods and drinks, you will be better off (especially if you are a diabetic). However, common sense also dictates that at this time of year, it is unrealistic to expect people to follow normal eating habits. So indulge if you must, try to minimize the consequences by exercising and reducing calorie intake and get back to good eating and lifestyle habits as soon as possible after the holiday season. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and look forward to connecting with you again in the new year. Enjoy the holidays.

Staged by the Royal Canadian Theatre Company, the show is geared towards all age groups, and its cast is a reflection of that fact. “We have everything from a three-year-old to a 73-year-old, including a granddaughter and grandfather on stage,” director Ellie King said in a press release. “We are having a ton of fun in rehearsals, and can’t wait to share this spectacular show with our audience.” Alice in Wonderland runs from Dec. 16 to Jan. 2 at the Surrey Arts Centre, which is located at 1750-88 Ave. Tickets range in price between $15.25 and $25.25.

Postmedia Community Publishing launches Swarmjam Looking for a sweet deal? Bargain hunters now have a new place to search with last week’s nationwide launch of daily deals website Swarmjam. com. The freshly launched Postmedia Network Inc. website provides consumers with unique deals in 36 communities across Canada, including the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley. “This is the fastest growing category online,” said Alvin Brouwer, president, business ventures, Postmedia Network, which owns The NOW. He said Postmedia Network’s dozens of established newspapers and news websites put the company in the perfect position to create a buzz among local shoppers, and its large sales force is capable of securing sweet deals from local vendors. “Consumers are always looking for a good deal, particularly at this time of year. And our advertisers are interested in new ways to engage customers. Swarmjam is the best of both worlds,” said Brouwer. “It’s also a great way for a consumer to try a new business for a lower price.” Swarmjam will offer discounts on things like bowling, white water rafting, haircuts, manicures, fast food and massages, he said. “Swarmjam is all about local deals, from local business, in a safe trusted 24/7 e-

commerce environment,” said Mike Rutigliano, vice-president of advertising sales and digital media for Postmedia Community Publishing. “We are very excited to demonstrate how print and

online work together to drive results, and effectively match up the buyers and sellers with great local trusted deals.” Each publication day, members are e-mailed the deal — which will be available for

a limited time. If they want in, they pay for it on the site with a credit card. Once enough people have bought the deal, they receive their voucher. The site is powered by CityXpress, which has been

live in Vancouver for a couple of months. Last week’s launch took the site national. “We think it’s good for consumers, we think it’s good for vendors and we think it’ll be good for Postmedia,” said

Brouwer. “Our goal, longer term, is to be best in class.��� To access Swarmjam, go to www.swarmjam.com, or enter the site via the link on The NOW’s homepage, at www. thenownews.com.

Environmental group plans fundraiser Footprints Conservation Society is hosting its inaugural fundraising gala to raise money to provide children with tools to address environmental change on a community and global level. Each year, the organization will fund a different children’s environmental project. This year, all money raised will support a children’s educational tree-planting program in Panorama Park in the spring of 2011. The group hopes to donate between $5,000 and $10,000 to the initiative, which will see kids organized into teams to lead the project. They will plant a tree, name it and watch it grow in their neighbourhood.

The City of Coquitlam will provide support and tools required to maintain the site. “Every child remembers if they planted a tree at school. It is that relationship to nature that is so easily lost in the busy world we live in today,” said Footprints president Krystal Vrba in a press release. “It’s our goal to give children a chance to rediscover that connection.” The organization also provides educational workshops called “How Big is My Foot?!” throughout the year at local elementary and middle schools. To raise money, Footprints Conservation Society will

Suburban RUSH planning 2011 event Registration for Port Moody’s seventh-annual Suburban RUSH adventure race begins on Jan. 1. The race is set for April 30, 2011, and organizers are expecting a sold-out crowd. The 30-kilometre off-road adventure event sees recreational athletes competing solo or in teams of two in mountain biking, trekking and mystery challenges in the trail network of Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra. Race organizers have had so much support from the community and local competitors, according to a press release, that they’ve decided to add a new component for kids. Children three to seven years old will get the opportunity to participate in an age-appropriate mini Suburban RUSH course, complete with race bib, T-shirt and finish line certificate. “This race is still one of the most affordable multi-sport races in the Lower Mainland,” race director Dean Wutke said. “We are lucky to have racers, both locally and from around the Greater Vancouver area, experience such breathtaking outdoor scenery. The City of Port Moody and businesses such as G&F Financial Group are really showing that fitness and health are important by supporting these recreational athletes.” Registration for both events opens on Jan. 1, 2011 at 6 p.m. to a limited number of participants at www.suburbanrush.com.

It is that time of year again to enjoy that one product we all love, CHOCOLATE; everyone loves it including our pets. Other D r. N e n a d K a r l i , than adding a few extra pounds, DVM & Assoc. chocolate is harmless to us humans, however our pets can suffer something awful. This ailment is called chocolate toxicity, which is most common in dogs, but other species are also susceptible. Sometimes owners like to give small amounts of chocolate as a treat. This is a big mistake, because immediately after their first bite dogs crave that sweet taste, leading them to hunt for it and find it even behind closed cabinet doors. When this happens dogs don’t stop at just one piece. Why would they? We wouldn’t! Poisoning severity depends on the type and quantity of chocolate ingested in relation to the size of the pet. Baker’s and dark chocolate are the worst and are 5 to 10 times more toxic than milk chocolate. For instance, ingestion of 3 to 5 oz (2-3 small bite size pieces) of dark chocolate can be lethal to a 20 lb (9 kg) dog. Symptoms of toxicity usually start 5 to 10 hours after chocolate ingestion, starting with vomiting, diarrhea, restlessness, excessive thirst and excitement, followed by tremors, ataxia, seizures and hyperthermia. If left untreated or treated too late complications often lead to death by cardio-respiratory failure. If you’re sure or suspect that your pet has ingested chocolate of any kind or amount, contact your veterinarian or emergency hospital and admit them immediately. Please have a safe and Happy Holidays and remember to LOCK UP YOUR CHOCOLATE! Welcoming new and existing clients at new location (by appointment) OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK

LEGAL

Q. My spouse is abusive to me. What can I do?

A. The Christmas Season seems an unusual time to reflect on family violence. Unfortunately, unrealistic expectations, financial pressure, and consumption of alcohol are all factors known to increase domestic spousal Margaret Smyth abuse during the holidays. Spousal assaults may begin with verbal abuse which can escalate to physical abuse and tends to become more frequent and severe over time. Assistance is available for any victim of family violence. Police should be involved whenever an assault has been committed, as they are trained to intervene and defuse the immediate threat of harm. Civil courts provide restraining orders which prevent contact and may include home-occupancy and child custody terms. If physical violence, emotional or verbal abuse occurs in your home, contact experienced professionals for counselling and legal advice. Protect your safety and that of the children who observe and are affected by abusive family situations.

LASER THERAPY

Dr. Pam Bennett Laser Light Therapy Will laser light work for arthritis? Yes, our most popular treatment in the office is for the pain and inflammation of arthritis – whether it is in the knees, shoulders, hands, ankle, neck or low back. In most cases, we are able to assist our patients to return to previously enjoyed activities and restore quality of life. How does it work? This exciting new technology utilizes superluminous and laser diodes to introduce photon energy into damaged cells and tissues. Within the cells, these photons are converted to biochemical energy. Cells utilize this biochemical energy to repair and regenerate which produces a multitude of positive physiological effects. Some of these effects include: • DNA synthesis • Collagen production • Endorphin production • Beta –Cortisol release • Angiogenesis With repair and regeneration of the damaged tissues patients experience a reduction in pain, decrease in swelling/edema and restoration of normal function. Based on the genetic makeup of the cells, and individual’s response to laser light therapy will vary to some degree. Are there any side effects? No, this is a very safe treatment compared to many pharmaceutical treatments for arthritis. In over 3 million laser light treatments delivered in Canada there has never been a significant adverse event noted. Our patients report that they find the treatments relaxing and often report better sleep even after the first few treatments. Many are able to reduce or eliminate their reliance on pain medications. What you may expect? Our mission at Laser Light Therapy is to reduce pain and inflammation, reduce need for pain medication, restore joint mobility and improve quality of life.

HOW IT WORKS

HST

Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is a highly sophisticated, non-toxic and non-invasive therapy that uses light energy from both superluminous and laser diodes. When placed in contact with the skin, this energy safely penetrates the tissue. At an intracellular level, the light is transformed into biochemical energy. Cells use this energy to repair and regenerate themselves, enhancing the body’s natural healing process.

WHO CAN BENEFIT?

BioFlex Low Intensity Laser Therapy is an effective solution for musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions, dermatological problems and the healing of open wounds. BioFlex therapy can safely increase the rate of recovery and help patients reduce the need for pain medication. BioFlex also has the ability to promote rapid recovery post surgery. The beneficial effects of LILT are cumulative over the course of a series of treatments.

Score Card

Mighty run leads Rapids to BC silver The rankings proved true — but the Riverside Rapids did their utmost to change that. The senior girls volleyball team marched all the way to the B.C. AAAA final in Nanaimo, and pushed the No. 1-ranked Handsworth Royals to the brink before falling 3-2. That championship battle summed up a big year for the Rapids, who were slotted early at No. 2 and held their ground through a short season of bumps and bruises. “It is really difficult to summarize,” said Riverside coach Bryan Gee. “The girls simply came together and played their best volleyball of the year — they won as a team and lost as a team.” After rallying and needing a full five games to slip past thirdrated Earl Marriott in the semifinal (25-22, 23-25, 22-25, 25-21, 15-12), the Rapids exchanged big spikes and digs with the Royals. Their past history — where Handsworth swept past the Rapids 2-0 at the RCMP Red Serge Classic a month ago — supplied a little reminder on what they had to do, captain Tylar Turnbull said. “It was like the most amazing volleyball I’ve seen in a long time,” said Turnbull. “Every hit was super hard and everyone was doing their best to get to the ball… It feels great. Sure, we’d have loved to come out with the gold but it was a terrific season, how we came together just over the last few months to make it this far.” With their backs to the wall and down 2-1, the PoCo squad dug deep and won 25-22, forcing a deciding game that the Royals won 15-10. Joining Turnbull on the first all-star squad was Mallory Sall, while teammate Meaghan Chong was selected to the second squad. • From far back of the pack, the Heritage Woods Kodiaks saw room for growth — and proceeded to climb. The senior girls AAAA volleyball team entered the B.C.s in Nanaimo ranked 10th and finished sixth, thanks to a youthful lineup that delivered shock after shock to the opposition. The Kodiaks’ biggest win of the tourney came early in pool play, when they upset ranked Kelowna. In the playoffs, they pushed McRoberts to a fifth game before losing, and then rebounded to knock off Dover Bay. In the battle for fifth spot, it came down to Kelowna again, who put their seniors up against Heritage Woods’ five Grade 10s and Gr. 12 libero Erika Ekeli. In the end, the squad pushed the envelope to sixth place. Earning a position on the second all-star squad was Grade 10 Allesandra Gentile.

Irish rumble past Ravens in BC final Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com They won the coin toss but lost the game. Ranked No. 1 entering the B.C. Subway Bowl high school football championship final, the Terry Fox Ravens suffered their only loss of the season Saturday, a 28-15 defeat to the Vancouver College Fighting Irish at Empire Field. As losses go, it was an eye opener for a team that had cruised past most opponents, including an 19-14 win over College in mid September. There have been a lot of miles packed on by both clubs in the interim. That the final unraveled as it did — with the Irish halting one of the best running games and punching timely holes through Fox’s defensive line — made it memorable in a not-so-comfortable way for the PoCo crew. “Our defensive backs are amongst the best in the province and I thought that they were giving (Vancouver College’s receivers) just a little too much respect,” said Fox co-coach Tom Kudaba. “[College] was able to find a way to pick up some big first downs when we had a chance to stop them.” The Ravens scored first, putting it into the end zone with 2:41 left in the first quarter on Cam Canales’ fourth-and-goal pass to Jared Soll from eight yards out. Van College answered back quickly, tying it on a short run by game MVP Adam Konar, on a series that was boosted by a 15-yard Fox penalty. On their next possession, the Fighting Irish sprung forward with some sharp passing by Grade 12 quarterback Jeff Tichelman, including a crucial fourth-and-10 gambit that put them inside the 10-yard line. It Ric Ernst/Vancouver Sun led to another short run into the BIRD ON A WIRE: Terry Fox Ravens’ quarterback Cam Canales feels the heat during Saturday’s B.C.

Magical performance nets Riverside surprise bronze

Sending its share of ripples through the B.C. senior boys AAA volleyball rankings, the Riverside Rapids proved full value for the provincial bronze on the weekend. To finish third overall while overcoming some difficult results was a test of drive and fortitude. Riverside captured its medal by sweeping host Kelowna in the third-place game (25-19, 25-21, 25-21), gaining a satisfying dose of revenge in the process. However, the tournament’s story, at least from a Rapids perspective, was carved out in their quarterfinal tilt with No. 2 seed and longtime rival Fraser Heights. In three encounters this season, the Firehawks had

dominated and set the tone. But last Friday it was a different tale being told, as PoCo shocked Fraser Heights 3-0 (25-20, 25-23, 25-19). “It was just incredible, it was one of those magical moments in sports for a team,” beamed Rapids coach Carlo Muro. “Our defence was just phenomenal. We were digging balls up from everywhere, we were aggressive and played like we knew every time where they were going to hit the ball.” Pitted against third-ranked Earl Marriott, the PoCo squad was a tad less aggressive than the match before, but put up a valiant fight before falling 3-0 (25-23, 25-22, 25-21) and missing out on a gold medal game. Despite that setback, the club showed its true

character and regrouped in its final showdown with Kelowna to walk off the court as winners. The program, which entered the B.C.s rated sixth overall, climbed the ladder thanks to a veteran-laden roster — most of whom have been playing together since Grade 6, Muro noted. “They’ve been together for a long time, they’ve been playing together since Grade 6 at our NOW volleyball camp. When the boys came into this tournament, they were playing for gold.” Earning a first all-star team spot was power hitter Victor Zych, who also placed second in the tourney’s spiking contest. Liam Brett, who supplied kamikazelike defensive skills, was selected to the second squad, while Brendan Williams was an honourable mention.

Raiders blitz to jr. bantam title

In a battle of the undefeated, the spoils belonged to the Raiders. The Coquitlam Raiders captured the B.C. Community Football junior bantam championship Sunday with a resounding 64-30 triumph over the Kelowna Dragons in Langley. Both teams entered the final showdown 13-0, but Coquitlam charged out and grabbed control quickly. In the first quarter they led 24-0, holding the Dragons to no first downs. Connor McKee, Cordell Parker and Brian Whittet scored touchdowns early for a comfortable 24-0 lead for the Raiders. While the Dragons answered back, the deficit remained the same at half time with Coquitlam ahead 40-16. Kelowna made it 40-24 on their first possession of the second half, but Whittet, who would cart of the final’s MVP award, added a pair of long TD runs to put the game out of reach. McKee would be recognized as the most sportsmanlike player. Although they surrendered 30 points, the Raiders’ defence was a major factor in the victory. Setting the tone were standouts Adam Camilleri, Jericho Mendez, Bailey Milburn, Taylor Poitras and Sean Stewart. “I thought we played very well in all three facets of the game,” said Raiders head coach Dwayne Smartt. “Our motivation was simple. We wanted an undefeated championship season. You don’t get too many

opportunities to play for that at any level.” Boosting the offence with terrific support were backfield contributors Brayden Parker and Michael West. • Another final, a different result. The Coquitlam peewee Wildcats delivered a spirited effort in a hard fought 28-13

loss to Abbotsford on Sunday. Coquitlam’s undefeated streak came to a halt in the championship. “As they say, football is a game of inches and today, if the ball bounced a little different on a couple of plays, the outcome could have been altered,” said Wildcats head coach Dino Felet.

A quick start-up time and the ability to shoot in high definition will ensure that sudden, spur-of-the-moment opportunities will never again be missed. Parent photographer – To capture Johnny’s big catch from the bleachers or Sally blowing out candles on her cake, parents need a versatile camera that is easy to use. A quick start-up time, HD video and a powerful zoom lens will ensure that life’s precious moments don’t get missed. A camera with Intelligent Auto mode will automatically choose the right settings (so you don’t have to) and compensate for handshake and subject movement.

Merry Christmas

United Blvd.

Nowadays, mistletoe is typically hung in doorways or entryways from one room to another.

History also suggests that mistletoe was a symbol of peace. In Scandinavia, mistletoe was considered a plant of peace.

Digital cameras tend to be at the top of our holiday wish lists – but with so many features and options available, making the perfect purchase can be daunting. Most Canadians want cameras that can automatically adjust their settings as needed, have high quality lenses, and have a big zoom – but what else? It’s all about identifying the personality of your photographer! Find out what they will be using the camera for and what they’ll value most in terms of features. Here are a few examples of common personalities to get you started

North Bend

Mistletoe would later take on a more political meaning, as the ritual of cutting the mistletoe came to symbolize the emasculation of the old king by his successor.

The tradition of kissing underneath the mistletoe likely stems from the belief that mistletoe bestows fertility and is often associated with the Roman festival of Saturnalia, a period of merrymaking that pre-dated Christmas. In 18th century England, a young lady standing underneath the mistletoe could not refuse to be kissed. Once kissed, the kiss would signify deep romance or eternal friendship.

Golden Drive

Especially sacred to Celtic Druids, mistletoe was believed to bestow life and fertility, while also protecting against poison and serving as an aphrodisiac.

During the Middle Ages, branches of mistletoe were hung from ceilings to ward off evil spirits. Throughout Europe, mistletoe was placed over doorways in the house as well as the stables as a means to preventing the entrance of witches.

Chances are, holiday revelers will find themselves underneath the mistletoe at least once this holiday season. While they might know what to do when that time comes, they might not know the history of that plant above their heads.

Digital camera shopping 101

Staple of holiday decor has a deep history

– does anyone sound familiar? Enthusiastic amateur – Known for their keen eye and excellent picture taking skills, the amateur photographer wants a camera that is versatile, high quality and dependable. Consider a detachable lens camera like the Lumix DMC-G2 which is lightweight, is operated by a simple touch-screen, has a versatile MOS sensor and can be used with eight different high-performance lenses. The LX5 is an extremely high-performing camera and small enough to fit in your pocket – this will make the photographer on your list very happy. World traveller – Whether in climbing the Eiffel tower or walking the Great Wall of China, the travel buff needs a powerful and portable camera that fits easily in their fanny pack. Look for a compact camera with a built-in flash as well as an Intelligent Auto mode to help capture night shots. Some models even have builtin GPS capability that digitally labels images with the location where they were shot – sorting through post-trip images has never been easier. Outdoor enthusiast – Always on the go, outdoor buffs need a camera that will stand up to rough and tumble outdoor activity on land, snow or water. Look for a
