jkurucz@thenownews.com From PoCo to Ottawa to all points across the country, Terry Fox’s legacy will be celebrated through thousands of pieces of memorabilia that will be displayed in Canada’s national museum in Ottawa. Port Moody-Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam MP James Moore headed up a press conference in Burnaby Thursday to announce a partnership between the friends of the Terry Fox Collection and the future Canadian Museum of History that

will begin in 2015. That partnership will see upwards of 200,000 items — many never before seen by the public — on display at the national museum. From there, a nationwide tour of the exhibit will take the Terry Fox show to museums and galleries across Canada alongside letters, postcards and the Team Canada jersey given to him by Hockey Hall of Fame member Bobby Orr. That tour is set to coincide with Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017. “For many Canadians, it will bring back CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

Terror suspects are ‘not Muslims’ PRESIDENT OF ISLAMIC CENTRE SPEAKS OUT ON ALLEGED CANADA DAY TERRORISTS

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com With word that the RCMP had foiled an alleged terror plot to blow up homemade pressure cooker bombs on the lawn of the B.C. legislature by two people described as being inspired by an Islamic terrorist group, thoughts quickly turned to what kind Whoever is of repercustrying to hurt sions this might have for local the community Muslims. in any form is However, the not Muslim. head of the local Islamic centre –Saad Bahr in the Tri-Cities Masjid Al-Hidayah said he’s not Islamic Centre worried the incident will bring negative attention to the local Muslim community or the mosque. Saad Bahr, president of the Masjid AlHidayah Islamic Centre in Port Coquitlam, said the centre is surrounded by open-minded people, who have generally never had a problem with the Muslim community. “We’re living here in a very safe land and a very safe community,” he told the Tri-Cities NOW on Wednesday. On Tuesday, the RCMP announced charges against a Surrey couple for plotting a terrorist attack against the B.C. legislature during Canada Day celebrations. John Stewart Nuttall, 38, and Amanda Korody, 29, are facing a number of charges in connection to the alleged bomb plot, including knowingly facilitating a terrorist activity, possession of an explosive substance and conspiring to commit an indictable offence. RCMP officials said both Nuttall and Korody were “self-radicalized” and that police believe they acted alone but were inspired by alQaida.

LISA KING/NOW

Saad Bahr, right, seen here with Mariam Rahimi in a 2012 photo, is president of the Islamic Society of BC, which operates a mosque in Port Coquitlam. There have been several media reports the couple converted to Islam a couple of years ago. Bahr said he found it strange the suspects were white Muslim converts, pointing out there hasn’t been a situation like that at his mosque. “Whoever is trying to hurt the community in any form is not Muslim,” he said. “I don’t believe they are Muslims.” In fact, Bahr said he was more preoccupied with the events taking place in Egypt, where he is originally from, than the alleged terror plot in Victoria. Though the centre located on Kingsway Avenue has enjoyed acceptance from the community since it opened in 2003, it has been the target of racist vandals on a couple of

occasions. Last September, someone left piles of bacon and other meat products on the doorstep of the centre. The Islamic religion forbids the consumption of pork. The incident was reported to police right away, but no suspects were ever identified. About 18 months earlier, the mosque was vandalized with graffiti. Andrew Rippin, a University of Victoria professor and specialist on the Muslim religion, said he believes it is unlikely local Muslims will face any sort of retaliation over the incident. “It seems to me unlikely that they would because I expect many people are reacting to this situation by scratching their heads and wondering what is really going on here,” he told the Tri-Cities NOW in an e-mail.

According to the Vancouver Sun, Nuttall frequented a small prayer room just blocks from his home in Surrey. Locals say Nuttall’s strange conduct was noticeable at the AmirE-Hamza musallah, or prayer room, which offers devout Sunni Muslims a convenient place to complete their five daily prayers at Scott Road and 92A Avenue. During a tour of the couple’s suite in Surrey, a Vancouver Sun reporter saw both Saudi and Iranian money tacked to a bulletin board. There was a poster for a protest in May against Monsanto, a multinational company that produces genetically modified wheat. A damaged TV in the bedroom was painted with the words MK-Ultra, an apparent reference to a controversial CIA brainwashing program that ran from the 1950s to the early ’70s. Rippin offered some insight into how the couple might have become radicalized like the police have described. He said the couple appeared to have developed some sense of identity through exposure to radical and violent elements in the Islamic world. Rippin suggested this allowed them to express their own resentments in ways that would draw attention to themselves. He also suggested the suspects may hope to experience a sense that somehow their existence has meaning as a result of this attention. “This is not ‘normal’ religious conversion or anything like that; it reflects, I think, a deeper desperation of two individuals who wish to ‘belong,’ to be a part of something,” Rippin said. “And what better in today’s world of media attention than Islam?” On whether B.C. could be the target of similar plots in the future, the UVic professor suggested it is a possibility, noting information is readily available on bomb making, and that both the local and the global political situations might provoke such actions. — with files from the Vancouver Sun

Reid wants city to ticket errant dog owners John KURUCZ

jkurucz@thenownews.com Time and patience are two things Coquitlam Coun. Mae Reid has run out of when it comes to a sizeable number of dog owners near Glen Park. Reid, the most outspoken pro-pet advocate on council, suggested city bylaws staff should begin a ramped-up enforcement campaign at the park, due to the overwhelming number of dog owners not abiding by city rules around off-leash dogs. “It’s time to start getting bylaws to ticket, ticket, ticket,” she said last week. “Some people just don’t get it and until you start hitting them in the pocketbook, they won’t. Reid’s comments came in relation to a staff report outlining the first phase of improvements and upgrades at the popular Town Centre park. Among the items added in the initial phase was an enclosure built specifically for off-leash dogs. Reid, and others on council, suggested many dog owners are allowing their dogs to run freely throughout the park, and ignoring the fact they can be subject to a $150 fine. It was a problem cited at Lafarge Lake and in Spirit Square as well. “There are still a lot of people that run their dogs in the big open grassy area, and they really shouldn’t be doing that — especially when we’ve got one of the most magnificent off-leash dog areas that you’re going to see anywhere,” Coun.

LISA KING/NOW

Coquitlam Coun. Mae Reid says not enough dog owners are using the off-leash enclosure at Glen Park.

Terry O’Neill said. Mayor Richard Stewart was reluctant to move to widespread ticketing immediately, and instead suggested the city begin ticketing residents in a more gradual fashion — with written or verbal warnings first. He did, however, share the same concerns as Reid and O’Neill.

“You can no longer use all of our parks as off-leash dog areas because we do provide facilities for that now … this has to end,” he said. The other points of contention in last week’s discussion centred more around things that aren’t in the park, as opposed to features that are. Councillors were overwhelmingly in favour of adding both washroom facilities and a spray park to the 17-acre park. Parks and recreation staff are currently weighing options between a static water feature and a spray park. The water feature would cost between $60,000 and $70,000, while cost estimates for a spray park range between $250,000 to $400,000. Acting manager of parks, recreation and cultural services Kurt Houlden noted that as more features get added to the overall park plan, the need for washrooms will likely increase and they will be added. “It’s very, very important that we put washrooms in there,” said Coun. Lou Sekora. “That should be [done] long before anything else gets done. There will be kids there, there will be adults there. If they want to go to the washroom, where are they going to go to the washroom, behind a tree?” Other planned park improvements haven’t been outlined yet. Staff will report back to council with options around a location for the spray park and washroom facilities as part of the next step of the planning process.

Delay in shelter plan John KURUCZ

jkurucz@thenownews.com The opening date for the area’s first dedicated homeless shelter has been pushed back by close to a year. Initially targeted for a spring 2014 opening, the homeless shelter at 3030 Gordon Ave. in Coquitlam will now likely be completed at some point in early 2015. According to CoquitlamBurke Mountain MLA Doug Horne, the delay has been caused by a backlog in geotechnical work on the site. “At no point has it been that we weren’t moving forward with the project,” he said. “We’ve always been moving forward, we just ran into some issues that required attention before we could get to the next step.” The Vancouver-based non-profit society RainCity Housing was chosen in late 2011 to develop and operate the shelter, which will include 30 emergency shelter beds and 30 transitional studio apartments. The group’s executive director, Leslie Remund,

suggested construction will begin in either December or early January 2014, and will likely last between 12 and 14 months. Despite the disparity between the two completion dates, Remund maintains the project is “on schedule.” “We’re just in the final stages with the architects and we have a construction manager chosen, and we’ll be going out to tender soon,” Remund said. Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said he was recently made aware of the delay, though he didn’t know exactly what caused it. Stewart noted he’ll be meeting with Housing Minister Rich Coleman in the next two weeks to discuss, among other things, the status of the shelter. “Obviously we want it open as soon as possible,” he said. “Even though we’ve managed quite well in working with the homeless population and reducing their numbers, we still need this facility and it’s still a high priority.” Tri-Cities Homelessness & Housing Task Group

chair Sandy Burpee said Wednesday the delayed opening date isn’t necessarily a cause for concern, as work has been continuously ongoing behind the scenes. “There really hasn’t been a period of dormancy at all,” he said. “There’s always been a process underway. It’s just taking longer than I had hoped. But it’s still happening. This all takes time.” In terms of the next steps, Horne said architectural drawings for the site will be submitted to the city in the next four to six weeks as part of the development permit application process. “I would have liked to have had the facility sooner than we will, but I think we’re going to have a great facility in the end, and I think that’s what’s most important,” he said. In the interim, a temporary use permit application is before PoCo city council to extend the operation of the Tri-Cities Bridge Shelter facility on Kingsway Avenue. A public hearing is expected to take place before August.

Province lets the grass grow at Riverview

John KURUCZ

jkurucz@thenownews.com Coquitlam councillors are incensed over a recent move by the province to trim back landscaping efforts on the Riverview Hospital site. The issue was first raised at a council in committee meeting last week, when Coun. Craig Hodge showed photographs of the site enveloped by at least half a metre of grass. “It’s disgusting. It’s absolutely disgusting. I’m absolutely insulted,” said Coun. Mae Reid. Mayor Richard Stewart pointed out the irony in the fact that the municipality has specific bylaws around maintenance standards for

residential properties, but acknowledged the city likely won’t have much say over the landscaping standards at Riverview. “I think this is just inappropriate. I think this is a shame,” he said. Other areas of concern flagged by council included the potential for a heightened fire risk, as well as the message sent to the community by leaving the historic site in a state of “demolition by neglect.” “When properties are well cared for and they look nice, they tend to have more respect in the neighbourhood,” Hodge said. “I’m just worried that we are creating a look for

Driving without due care: This should serve as a warning to anyone thinking of speeding around Tri-Cities streets. Coquitlam Mounties say speed was probably a factor in the crash that turned a grey Honda upside down on the lawn of a home in the 1300 block of Lansdowne Drive early Wednesday morning. “Whenever you drive, your focus should be on the road and you should obey all traffic signs,” said RCMP Cpl Jamie Chung in a statement. “Luckily the occupants were not seriously hurt.” The driver was given a ticket for driving without due care.

Funding is key to transit ridership

I

n a dazzling glimpse of the obvious, Statistics Canada recently released numbers showing most commuters in Metro Vancouver are still getting to work in their cars. In the more urban areas, where transit options are better, the number of car commuters is certainly fewer. However, residents here are mostly doing the same thing as other suburban commuters: gassing up and ignoring campaigns to get them out of their vehicles. Their reluctance to park the car and embrace transit are primarily the dual factors of travel time and convenience. Neither of which is surprising. Once outside the urban core — hinterlands less occupied by urban planners and more by ordinary folk — getting to and from many destinations remains a lengthy headache on transit. That issue isn’t about to go away. Outlying suburbs are among the fastest-growing areas of our region. Contributing to the problem is that drivers continue to enjoy the lion’s share of provincial dollars that go to transportation. Expansion of transit service to make it faster and more convenient for outlying areas is key to getting more people out of their cars. But that won’t happen without money — which is where the rubber really hits the road. Road pricing is one option that’s been suggested by local mayors to raise cash for transit expansion. But Victoria has been cool to the idea, insisting it be tied to a doomed-tofail referendum. The likely result — more people continuing to drive more cars until political will makes transit a more viable option. — Guest editorial from the North Shore News

And don’t think that these cushy civic contracts are just a big city phenomenon. In Lillooet, the CAO is paid $111,000 to keep a watchful eye over the district’s 2,322 residents. His contract even contains a provision that requires the district to pick up his legal fees in the event he decides to sue any of those aforementioned residents for defamation. And sue he has. According to his contract, he and the district’s foundation will split any booty that may come from those lawsuits. The CAO can use his share of the pot either “for a vacation or for reduction of employee personal debt.” Sechelt (population 9,291) is now on its third top gun since the 2011 local election after the first — who earned $141,780 in 2011 — was fired and the second quit after only six months on the job. Negotiated settlement packages with just two of the employees fired in 2011 rang in at $255,000. It’s easy to understand why there seems to be a disconnect between city administrators and ratepayers. After all when you earn $200,000 plus a year, you don’t clip coupons. And if you don’t know what it’s like to try and make ends meet on B.C.’s median family income of $66,970, chances are you can’t empathize with what most see as waste at City Hall or grandiose schemes by city administrators who likely will be long gone when it comes time to pick up the tab. Dermod Travis is the executive director at IntegrityBC.


LETTERS SHOULD COQUITLAM HOLD A BYELECTION?

I am intrigued to learn that Coquitlam city council is experiencing some difficulty in making a decision on the issue of whether a byelection should be held as a result of the recent election to provincial office of both Linda Reimer and Selina Robinson. I have recently learned from the city clerk’s office that this decision has been pushed back to city council’s meeting on July 8, which is almost two months after the provincial election. What is going on here? Why are we, as residents of this city, not being given the right to replace two councillors who are no longer serving in the positions to which they were elected? I think it would surprise both Ms. Reimer and Ms. Robinson that the service that they provided to the city was not worthy of being replaced. It is my strongly held belief that if council fails to decide in favour of a byelection, it will represent a major disservice to the residents of Coquitlam. Every three years, we elect eight councillors and a mayor to serve

on our behalf and to represent the interests of the residents of our city. The number of councillors that we elect to council has no doubt been determined over time by a range of criteria which likely includes the work load to be handled by the respective councillors, the size of the city, the growth of the city and the scope and complexity of the issues that confront one of the largest municipalities in the Lower Mainland. As such, our democratic rights will only be served if we continue to have the same number of councillors as we elected in 2011. At the same time, it was never suggested, much less communicated to the public, prior to the provincial election, that if Ms. Reimer and/or Ms. Robinson were to win their provincial seats, that they would not be replaced. In all honesty, mayor and councillors, this is not your decision to make. You are bound by your positions on council to replace these two positions on council. Finally, you should recognize that precedents for byelections in this city have already been established. Louella Hollington left council in 2007 and was replaced in a byelection, and Finn Donnelly, who was elected to the federal Parliament in 2009, was

also replaced through a byelection. I urge each and every one of you to support the holding of a byelection to replace Ms. Reimer and Ms. Robinson. Wayne Taylor Coquitlam ••• On Monday, Coquitlam city council will consider whether or not to hold a byelection to fill the seats vacated by newly elected MLAs Linda Reimer and Selina Robinson. A decision to do so should concern anyone supportive of fiscal responsibility and healthy democracy alike. Any byelection would have to be held after the summer, when residents are back from vacation. As such, any victors would likely not be sworn in until October, meaning their terms would be at most 12 months until the general election held in either November or October 2014. Does that really sound like the best, most responsible use of $300,000? The two councillors on leave are not being paid a cent for the remainder of this term. The vacant seats cost taxpayers nothing. Even if the money were to be spent on a byelection, we’ve seen this pitiful movie before: Coquitlam municipal byelections

in 2010 and 2007 drew voterturnouts of 7.6 and 4.9 per cent, respectively. I cannot think of any clearer message from voters about election fatigue and burn-out — after all, a new byelection would be the 14th time in as many years that Coquitlam voters have had to head to the polls for one level of government or another! Low turnout among the general public also means that organized interest groups have a disproportionate influence on the results. By my count, the six present members of council collectively have over 80 years of experience in elected office; I have no doubt in my mind that for just 12 months, they will be able to perform all the duties expected of any full council. In the meantime, on Monday, they ought to consider the best interests of all taxpayers — not specific individuals or interest groups. Sebastian Zein Port Coquitlam

Police seek witness Jeremy DEUTSCH

jdeutsch@thenownews.com It was a crash that fortunately didn’t take a life. Now Coquitlam Mounties are hoping to speak to the driver of a white car who might have some information that would help shed light on the cause of the crash. Three people were taken to hospital June 18 after a dump truck heading southbound along North Road collided head on with a pickup truck. The vehicle whose owner police want to talk to is described as an import model, fourdoor white car with shiny wheels. “Though we don’t think the white car made physical contact with any of the vehicles in the crash, we believe the driver was at such

an angle that he or she may be able to tell us what, exactly, happened prior to the collision,” said RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung in a statement. As for the crash, police said it appeared the dump truck driver applied the brakes and somehow jack-knifed into oncoming traffic. In all, four vehicles were involved in the crash, which occurred around 1: 30 p.m. near the New West border. The two occupants of the pickup received extensive but non-life-threatening injuries. The dump truck driver was also taken to hospital. The driver of the white car, or anyone who might know the identity of the driver, is asked to call Coquitlam RCMP at 604-945-1550 and quote file 2013-17058. twitter.com/jertricitiesnow

likely inspire a great amusement ride at Disneyland, but for now we’ll have to settle for this derailing train (literally). Overly long action scenes devoid of any emotional weight, scattered pacing, annoyingly unfunny comic relief and Johnny Depp’s devoted but mistaken performance make The Lone Ranger nearly unwatchable and one of the worst summer action “things” I have seen all year. The majority of flaws in this film arise from its schizophrenia and uncertainty; one minute it pays homage to the original series, the next 60 seconds it’s a gun-slinging western, and the third minute a comedy with Captain Jack Sparrow and the Winklevoss twins. Remember, this is only 180 seconds in and The Lone Ranger goes on for two and

Safety tips for fairs and carnivals

Carnivals, county fairs and street festivals can make for fun family outings. But revelers need to make sure their experiences are as safe as they are fun. • Be prepared. Research the fair or carnival and know what to expect when you arrive. Knowing what to expect can make the occasion a little less stressful. • Dress for the weather. It is important to wear sturdy, comfortable footwear. Wear hats to shield your faces from the sun and lather on plenty of sunblock for protection. • Let children know where safety personnel are stationed. Establish a meet-up point that is very conspicuous should anyone get separated from the group.

• Put your name or “Mom/Dad” on a sheet of paper with a contact number and put it in your son or daughter’s pocket. • Stay hydrated. Pack plenty of bottled water for the day. Dehydration is common when spending hours outdoors in warm weather. • Stick together. It can be tempting to separate when you get to the carnival, as older children may not be interested in the same rides as their younger siblings. Separating increases the risk of someone getting lost.Carnivals and fairs are staples of the warm-weather season across the country. These enjoyable outings are even more fun when families play it safe.

senile-looking aboriginal (or Johnny Depp with a lot of make-up). The Indian begins to tell the child a story, a fable about the greed that fueled “progress” and destroyed the relationship of two peoples who desperately needed each other’s cooperation. In an early scene we meet the Indian and John Reid handcuffed together by an

iron chain. They are the only link between the whites and the Comanche. The side of development (whites) are always looking around the corner attempting to build the railway from the American east to west, regardless of where it takes them, including Indian land. Their greed fuels their decision to ignore treaties. As conflicts electrify and nature continues to be out of bal-

ance, Tonto and the Lone Ranger become outlaws and must restore the broken peace. Emotions run high and situations are supposed to be tense but we can’t help think that we are merely being dragged along. The music bellowed for my tears but all it got was my indifference. Poor characterization can be associated with this shortcoming. Vignettes are

not enough to make us care about characters. The constant snickering or antics does not garner much pathos either. But its most offensive sin is that the comic relief is not funny. Johnny Depp tries hard but his Tonto is just Jack Sparrow with an Indian accent and none of the former’s witty dialogue. His farce draws more misses than hits. However, on my second viewing I rec-

from Spain to Mexico a malfunction in the landing gear leaves a plane circling aimlessly around La Mancha, waiting for an inter-strip to be available. The economy class passengers have been sedated by the stewards, making them oblivious of possible dangers, but the business class is wide awake and causing quite a ruckus. It is the job of the three homosexual flight attendants to keep everyone calm and in line. We dive into the private lives of four rich idiots, their love interests, familial situations and most explicitly, their sex lives as they face the risk of death. From Spanish cult favourite Pedro Almodovar comes I’m So Excited — a candy coloured sex farce and allegory of the class struggles in Spain. But the film in its broad investigation struggles to make developed links between stories. I’m So Excited never feels like a coherent whole.

Teen throwers are right on target

POCO PAIR WILL COMPETE FOR CANADA AT WORLDS Dan OLSON sports@thenownews.com

T

eagan Rasche and Brittni Wolcyzk were all caught up in celebrating Canada Day on Monday. Come next week, that patriotic passion will be transferred into their athletic passion as the Port Coquitlam teenagers wear the red and white as members of Team Canada at the World Youth Track and Field championships in Donetsk, Ukraine. The two earned positions on the Canadian youth squad after toiling through the spring to hit the qualifying standards and finish top-two in the country in their respective disciplines. Rasche accomplished her hammer throw standard in her final meet at her home club in Langley. The dual thrower — she won the B.C. high school javelin title last month, edging out Wolcyzk — was unable to meet the javelin mark using the lighter, junior weight a day earlier. So it came down to her and the hammer, one day and six tries, creating both tension and excitement for the 16-year-old Riverside Secondary student. “I was down to one event, six throws on the last day,” recalled Rasche. “I woke up and it didn’t even feel like a special day, it just felt like an average day — but I had three espressos.” Wolcyzk, meanwhile, cruised past the required javelin mark in May at a Lethbridge, AB meet with a throw of 48.56 — more than 2.5-metres beyond the standard. However, she still had to maintain a top-two national placement to clinch the position, making for some nervous moments as the season progressed. “It was different for me,” Wolcyzk said. “I hit it earlier but then I was under the stress of having to wait to see how others did.” That kind of success among teen throwers is very rewarding for coach Tom Nielsen. The Langley Mustangs coach and former Coquitlam resident — son Kyle, a Centennial alumni, is currently representing Canada in the javelin at the World Universiade in Russia — knows how much work the teenagers have put into this goal. “No one knows the kind of journey they’ve had,” said Nielsen. “They see them show up at the meet, but all the work starts in October and the ups and downs, everything from shin splints to cut knees. They don’t see the non-fun times when you’re alone, doing the training.” For 15-year-old Wolcyzk, that involved changes to her throwing technique last fall as she trained for a heavier javelin. The 2012 Canadian midget champion, Wolcyzk began the year with a painful shoulder injury that she worked through.

SPORTS SHORTS XTREME GETS B SHOT

It’s all about the big games this weekend for the North Coquitlam United under-17 girls Xtreme, as they compete in the provincial B Cup in North Vancouver. The soccer squad advanced to the tournament with a 4-1 Coastal Cup quarterfinal win in April over Tsawwassen. Alyssa Lum scored a pair of goals. In the Coastal final, the Xtreme battled the Redhill Reds to a scoreless standoff in regulation. They would eventually fall in overtime.

A personal best of 44.97, set in 2012, soon became old news as the Archbishop Carney student gained confidence with her new technique. Once her mom told her about the Worlds in the Ukraine, she pushed some more. Rasche took a huge jump this season and obliterated her old personal best by six metres — with her national top-two throw of 54.39 in Langley establishing a new mark, and taking over the second-best result by just three centimetres. That kind of improvement has been replicated in her confidence, too. “I went from doing three spins to four spins… It’s much more physical because you have to get use to going that much more faster and control yourself better. And I’m much stronger,” said Rasche. And while they remain adamant competitors on the field, the

A’S SWAMP LAKERS

If anything, their dominance seemed understated. The first-place Coquitlam junior Adanacs pulled the plug on the Burnaby Lakers on Wednesday, clobbering them 17-1 in B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League action. Hat tricks by Erik Klein and Cole Shafer led the way as the A’s bolted out to a 5-0 lead after 20 minutes. Contributing two goals apiece were Reid Reinholdt, Vincent Ricci and newcomers Tyler Buchan and Matt Delmonico. Also scoring were Chase McIntyre, Spencer Stevens and Jake Taylor. Coquitlam hosts New Westminster tonight (Friday), 7 p.m. at the Sports Centre.

two have also developed a good-natured chemistry of testing skills and matching quick wits as tenacious teenagers. “I think our relationship has definitely matured,” noted Wolczyk with a grin. “We’re a lot closer now and I think we’re really good competitors. Our relationship is really good.” Camaraderie as clubmates will now extend to Team Canada and the world stage — a dream these teens have lassoed in quick fashion. “It’s so exciting that we get to do this experience with each other,” said Rasche. “I think it’s funny how close it comes together,” added Wolcyzk. “We just celebrated Canada Day and now we’re going off to represent Canada. It’s like the celebration is still going.”

BIG INNING HITS REDS VIGNA IN TITLE CHASE

The Whalley Chiefs provided the fireworks on Canada Day, trumping the Coquitlam Reds 12-7 in B.C. Premier Baseball League play. The visiting Chiefs erased a three-run deficit in the seventh inning, scoring eight unanswered runs off six singles, an error and three walks. Until then, Coquitlam had control of the game, having out-hit Whalley 10-3 at that point. Starter Curtis Taylor took the loss, getting one out in the last inning. Going 2-for-3 with a home run and three runs scored was Jon Zazulak, while first baseman Cam Williams was 3-for-4 with two RBI. The Reds host Victoria on Sunday at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. at Mundy Park.

Kevin Vigna entered today’s final round of the B.C. Junior Boys golf championship trailing the leaders by a single stroke at the Revelstoke Golf Club. Birdies on the final two holes Thursday put Vigna, a Coquitlam native, within striking distance. He posted a four-under-par 68, after combining for a one-under score (71, 72) over the opening two rounds. Leaders Jordan Lu and Trevor Yu, both of Vancouver, lead at sixunder-par. Coming a stroke shy of a new club record, Port Coquitlam’s Gunntas Sidhu posted a sizzling 65. The third-round score catapulted Sidhu into a tie for fifth place.

Sparta, Spartans shine at BCs It was a double-celebration for Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer this week. A pair of boys squads captured their respective Youth Provincial Premier titles. The under-18 Sparta captured its division crown with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Mountain United, qualifying for the Canadian Club nationals in October. In u-15 action, the Spartans prevailed 3-1 over Mountain thanks to a outstanding start. Coquitlam grabbed the lead in the 25th minute when Samuel Lee converted a penalty shot, on a play where Stefan Kamner was brought down inside the

penalty area. Five minutes later, the Spartans doubled their lead off Nate Trampleasure’s tally, off a set-up from Bronson Hartley. In the second half, Lee contributed his second goal with an assist to Malcolm Sanchez. Mountain broke through to score its lone goal with 20 minutes remaining. “I wouldn’t say there was a turning point in the match, however drawing and converting the penalty shot in the 25th minute really settled everyone down and calmed everyone’s nerves,” Coquitlam coach Robert Mazzarolo commented in

an e-mail. “Before that point, it was a bit of a nervous start…” With much of the battle occurring at midfield, the Spartans got into good space to create its offensive chances. Defensively, the defence held the fort, with standout efforts from Frederik Boserup, Shaun Mertens, Matthew McIlwrick, Janko Vong, while goalkeeper Jared Horvath stopping all but one shot. Sparta, meanwhile, edged ahead on Lucas Krivak’s tally midway through the second half to give them three straight berths to the national club championships.

Just winning was apparently not enough for a handful of Coquitlam Adanacs. Four members of last year’s Western Lacrosse Association finalists demanded to be traded prior to the June 30 deadline — with league MVP Nick Rose leading the charge. The Adanacs dealt Rose, all-star Dane Dobbie and Damon Edwards to 2012 WLA champion Langley Thunder for Brandon Goodwin, Matt MacGrotty, a third round draft pick in 2015 and a conditional pick. Also shipped out was defender Jon Harnett, who went to Victoria to join younger brother Greg. Coquitlam acquired a second round selection in 2014 for Harnett. Dobbie, in his sixth season with the Adanacs, stood fifth in league scoring with 22 goals and 26 assists over nine games. All are eastern natives who were recruited by a previous Adanac regime. Coquitlam coach Bob Salt said the upheaval came as a surprise but was led by Rose’s trade demand. “It’s sickening. [Rose] had the balls to say he only wanted this trade to make the Adanacs better… It all came out after we tied Langley (last Wednesday). Rosey said we can’t win and ‘I want out,’ and took three guys with him. I was just shocked at that attitude,” said Salt. Salt believes that most are returning to Ontario next season and wanted to cash out

with a better Mann Cup shot. The Thunder announced Tuesday that it had also secured the rights to former junior Adanac standout Mark Matthews, Adam Jones and Jeremy Noble, at an unspecified premium price tag. Salt said the club has played most of the season with Adam Shute in net and is confident the six-foot-three netminder can continue as their No. 1 down the stretch. “Shute is the guy. Losing Rosey makes a difference but you don’t want that kind of attitude around, it’s infectious. Players start to think they’re bigger than the game.” The Adanacs, who sit tied for fifth at 4-6-1 and three points out of third place, now must re-group to stay in the hunt over the final three weeks. New general manager Kevin Hill, who took over from Randy Delmonico on July 1 after the deals had been consumated, said the players coming in will bolster the club for the playoff run and down the road. “We have a very hardworking group right now, dedicated to this club,” said Hill, who preferred not to comment on the reasons behind the trades or Delmonico’s decision to leave the club. “The players we brought in have a lot of promise and all of them are in their first or second season of senior A.” Coquitlam continues its push for a top-four playoff berth on Saturday, 7 p.m. when they host the Victoria Shamrocks at the Poirier Sports Centre.
