jdeutsch@thenownews.com In the first few days following her diagnosis of leukemia, Danielle Hoult needed blood — a lot of blood. Platelets and red blood cells, the 12-year-old Port Coquitlam girl needed it all, undergoing five transfusions in just the first 10 days after the cancer diagnosis. That was back in October 2012. She’s had countless transfusions in the year and half since.

Danielle is still being treated for cancer, taking a daily regiment of chemotherapy pills that will continue for another year if all goes well, but for now, the transfusions are behind her. But that hasn’t stopped the Hoult family from raising awareness around the need for people to give blood. “I never realized how many blood transfusions were involved when Danielle was first diagnosed,” her dad Kendall, a member of the Port Coquitlam fire department, told the Tri-Cities NOW.

Preschool change pleases parents Jeremy DEUTSCH

jdeutsch@thenownews.com A group of Port Moody parents won’t be lining up in the cold next week to get their kids into a preferred time slot at a city-run preschool. But the issue has prompted local politicians to look at the crunch for preschool space in a city with a growing population of families. The issue came up at Tuesday’s council meeting, after a group of parents asked the city to change the signup process at Rocky Point Park daycare, which is run through the city’s child recreation program. Some of the parents of preschoolers in the three-yearold morning class want to have a guaranteed spot for the four-year-old morning class that starts in September. The city runs two preschools, one at Rocky Point Park and one at the Glenayre Community Centre. Under current rules, the

LISA KING/NOW

The city-run preschool located in the Rocky Point Park Service Building is popular with parents. kids in the three-year-old class are guaranteed a spot in the four-year-old class, but a preferred time is not guaranteed. There are 16 spots available for each session. Not having a guaranteed spot would mean parents like Jeff McLellan or his wife

would have to spend the night lining up to get their daughter in a class with the rest of her friends. “It’s a flawed system,” he told the Tri-Cities NOW, adding the process is even harder on single parents, who have to find a way to stay out all

night. “For a city funded program, it’s insane.” McLellan said he had no issue with lining up last year to secure a spot for his daughter the first time, but was surprised to learn if he wanted the coveted morning spot for a second year, he would have to line up again. But after a lively debate, council voted in favour of a motion that would allow the three-year-olds to keep their time slot for next year. It was a welcome relief for McLellan, who praised council for the decision. “If we hadn’t shown up, nothing would have happened,” he said. But even the Port Moody father admits parents with a child in the current afternoon program might not be happy they won’t get a chance at the morning session. While the vote was unanimous, several councillors expressed concern with changing the process for this year. “Somebody is always going

to complain that it’s not fair,” said Coun. Rosemary Small, suggesting a lottery process might be fairer. Mayor Mike Clay noted the city has used the same process for years without a complaint, adding council hadn’t spoken to anyone on the other side of the issue before making a decision. “We have fairness in this right now as best it could be and we’re moving away from fairness,” he said. City staff told council the process of having parents line up for preschool registration has been in place for some time, adding the city has made improvements over the years. Staff also told council the city probably couldn’t offer an online registration option because the age of the preschoolers has to be validated in person. Some councillors were quick to support the change requested by parents. Coun. Gerry Nuttall argued if the city recognizes holding

a spot for the three-year-olds to move into the next year is valid, the program should be able to recognize keeping a preferred time is also fair. He also suggested children at that age want the comfort of knowing they’re going back to the friends they made the previous year. Council also voted in favour of striking up a task force to look at the bigger issue of preschool needs in the city. Coun. Rick Glumac, who proposed the task force, said the issue reveals there is a severe shortage of preschool programming. “Maybe we need to look at putting a little bit more resources into that,” he said. McLellan said he’d like to see programming expanded and improved where possible, and is looking forward to being on the task force. He suggested the creation of the task force is an even better reward for the effort parents put into fighting the registration process.

Cabo By Night by Sarah Bancroft

Dozens donate at fire hall blood drive CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Mom Nadine said up until her daughter’s diagnosis, she figured donated blood was only needed for traumatic events or injuries. “When she was diagnosed I didn’t even think transfusion for leukemia,” she said. After the diagnosis, Kendall took a leave from his firefighting duties, but upon his return, he shared his family’s story with the rest the crew. And much like an extended family, the fire department rallied around one of its own. On Thursday, more than 50 members of the PoCo fire department and their families rolled up their sleeves at Fire Hall No. 1 to donate blood to Canadian Blood Services. Fellow firefighter Matt Stonehouse said the members wanted to show support for the cause and for a colleague, noting the department takes part in a lot of different organizations and causes. “It never quite hits so close to home,” he said.

The department is also considering making the blood drive an annual event at the fire hall. And Thursday’s drive is a gesture appreciated by the entire Hoult family, especially Danielle. “It’s really nice, you don’t see a lot of blood drives,” she said. “It’s really nice to think about how many people came out to support me.” But now the whole family is aware of not just the need for donated blood, but also for bone marrow. Fortunately, at this point it doesn’t appear Danielle will need a bone marrow transplant, but the family knows of other children with leukemia who do, and they urge people to join the blood service’s OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network. Danielle also has a message for people who are sitting on the fence when it comes to donating blood, especially if they don’t like needles. “One little poke in the arm could maybe mean life and death for another kid,” she said.

Port Moody keen to comment on pipeline CITY TO APPLY FOR INTERVENOR STATUS AT KINDER MORGAN EXPANSION HEARINGS

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com The City of Port Moody has joined the growing list of communities that want a say on the proposed twinning of the Trans Mountain pipeline. On Tuesday, council voted in favour of the city formally applying to participate in the National Energy Board (NEB) hearings regarding Kinder Morgan’s Westridge Marine Terminal expansion proposal. While the current or proposed pipeline doesn’t run through Port Moody, the city does border on Burrard Inlet. Specifically, the city is applying as an intervenor on three issues: •The potential environmental and socioeconomic effects of marine shipping activities that would result from the proposed project, including the potential effects of accidents. •Contingency planning for spills, accidents or malfunctions during the construction and operation of the project •Safety and security during the construction and operation of the project, including response planning and thirdparty damage prevention. Exactly how the city would

participate still needs to be determined, along with the costs. According to city staff, the costs could range from $3,000 to $500,000. It was noted the higher costs would typically be associated with hiring lawyers and conducting research. A report on the cost of taking part will be brought back to council once it is known. City staff also suggested the municipality could partner with other communities for a presentation to the NEB. Coun. Rick Glumac said the city is well positioned to bring valuable input to the NEB process, noting it approved a motion last year to invite Kinder Morgan for an information town hall meeting. He said the meeting would provide an opportunity for the public to ask questions that the city could then present to the NEB hearing. “Basically, this just gives us a voice at the table and the assurance we can have those concerns addressed,” Glumac said. No such town hall meeting has been scheduled, but at the time, Kinder Morgan officials appeared open to the idea. Coun. Diana Dilworth said

she’s supporting the intervenor motion for now, but wants a further discussion on the costs and what perspective the city would be taking at an NEB hearing. She asked whether a presentation to the NEB would be from the perspective of council, city staff or residents. Earlier this week, Coquitlam council voted to have a further discussion on the intervenor topic. Belcarra, Vancouver, BurnabyandMetroVancouver are among some of the other local governments that have already sought that status. Kinder Morgan’s $5.4billion pitch would see its 1,550-kilometre oil pipeline twinned from Edmonton to Burnaby. If the expansion is approved, the number of tankers in Burrard Inlet could increase from 96 to an estimated 300 a year. The proposed route in Coquitlam would run east of the Port Mann Bridge through the Fraser River hitting land near United Boulevard. The line would continue to follow the road west past the Eaglequest Golf complex before meeting up with the Lougheed Highway corridor to Burnaby. twitter.com/jertricitiesnow

Make sure to plan dinner at the cliff-side seafood restaurant El Farallon, serving local specialties like grouper, sea bass and tuna ordered by weight and cooked over an open grill. Consider a quote from Hemingway at the bar: “A ship in port is safe, but that’s not what ships are built for.” Sounds like a travel mantra to us. At Capella Hotel, www.capellahotels.com

Rosemary margaritas in the open-air bar while whale watching over the Sea of Cortez. It doesn’t get much better than that. But if you move on to dinner at Cocina Del Mar (try to get the lower tables cantilevered over the sea) you will see it can. The seafood tortilla soup, with little neck clams and white Baja prawns is outstanding. At Esparanza Resort, www.esperanzaresort.com

dine

Right in the heart of downtown Cabo, the open-air, lantern-filled restaurant at the boutique Bahia Hotel gets so busy at dinner it overtakes the lobby. And there is good reason: the food, music and ambiance are all outstanding. Owned by a group of high-profile New York bankers, the hotel is undergoing a room-byroom renovation, but we kind of loved the charm of the original rooms with their kitchenettes and plaster scallop shell over the bed, all for under $150/night. www.bahiacabo.mx/en.htm Read the rest of our Cabo By Night itinerary at www.vitamindaily.com

Closet Zen

Mother of Invention

You won’t be surprised to hear of another new Canadian yoga wear brand, but you might be surprised to find one that makes clothing that can transition to the coffee shop, or even lunch, after your workout. Zen Nomad is a Toronto-based yogawear collection that features tops, dresses, and leggings that work just as well with jeans or jewelry as they do on a yoga mat. The longsleeve asymmetrical practice top ($92) is a wardrobe staple that works under sweaters as well as under the dimmed lights of hatha yoga practice. The Delphine dress ($96) can be paired with leggings during backbends and with boots and tights for a post-workout lunch. And if your New Year’s resolution has been downgraded into a daily practice of savasana, then this whole collection can adapt to that. Relaxation pose was always the one we were best at, anyway.

Americans might claim it as their bird, but the world’s largest population of bald eagles is in Brackendale, BC during the winter.

Even rail-thin supermodels can be dimple-prone— we’ve seen it with our own eyes! While there isn’t a magical cure for the bumps, the texture can be improved with groundbreaking treatments like LPG Endermologie, or Lipomassage (sounds techy, but it’s really a high-performance deep tissue massager). It was invented in France in order to boost collagen production and circulation in burn victims. Of course, the clever French turned it into a beauty gadget. Here’s how it works: You strip down, then slip on a full-body stocking (yes, a little awkward!), and the technician massages away at your “problem” areas, whether it’s thighs, arms, or belly. We visited Vancouver’s esteemed LPG specialist Joy Stewart at the quaint Touch of Joy spa. With intense massaging action over six sessions, the circulation was enhanced, lipolysis reactivated, and overall texture significantly smoother. C’est si bon! It’s never too early to start bikini shopping. $855/6 sessions, $1500/12 sessions, A Touch of Joy, #33–638 W. Sixth Ave., Vancouver, 604-605-4046, www.touchofjoy.ca

The best way to see these majestic birds is on the Eagle Viewing Boat Trip from Squamish-based Sunwolf. You start with coffee and pastries while they suit you up in the necessary gear (hopefully the rain suit will only be for show, not out of necessity). Then you’ll float down the Cheakumus and Squamish rivers and watch as bald eagles feast on the spawning salmon. End the trip with a steaming bowl of chili next to the fire at their lodge. There is also the option of renting one of the cabin (with vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors) for the night. Slip into the hot tub, and the eagle has landed. $100 per person, $65 for children under 12. $285 for the cabin rental (based on double occupancy). Book at www.sunwolf.net/eagle-tours

Conservation program now in Tri-Cities John KURUCZ

jkurucz@thenownews.com From hogweed to holistics, a new program that’s rolling out in the Tri-Cities aims to educate residents through nature. The South Coast Conservation Program (SCCP)isofferinglandowners in the Tri-Cities free property visits to help assess their yard in a myriad of ways: advice around invasive species, tips on garden enhancement or

education around the types of plants and animals in their yards. “Usually it’s a very positive experience and people are looking to have a lot of questions answered,” said SCCP stewardship coordinator Tamsin Baker. “Even if we can’t answer them on the spot, we can go away and find the answers for them at a later date.” The program has been running for close to a decade, mainly in the Fraser Valley

and in communities south of the Fraser. Both governmental and non-governmental organizations assist in delivering the service, which is funded by the federal government. Outside of identifying various types of flora and fauna, SCCP staffers have also helped residents incorporate features like native flowering plants, which attract hummingbirds and beneficial bees, as well as nest boxes for songbirds and bats.

“We’ve been to properties where we’ve been pleasantly surprised with all the interesting features we’ve found, in terms of ponds, wetlands, fish, frogs and other species,” Baker said. “We’ve been able to improve those areas.” And while the program is ideally suited for those who live next to a forest, wetland or creek, Baker said anyone is welcome to ask for the service. “Every property is so different.

Trudeau starts the discussion

F

ederal Liberal leader Justin Trudeau launched an attack Wednesday on the only target in the Senate he could hit — his own party. Trudeau has disbanded the Liberal caucus within the Red Chamber. There are no more Liberal senators, he said. No longer will the Liberal party have a place in the unelected portion of Canada’s government. Trudeau has done this, he says, as a sort of practical step towards Senate reform. He’s challenging PM Stephen Harper to do the same, freeing the Conservative senators from their party bonds. Symbolically, it’s a big move. But practically, it’s hard to say whether it will make any difference in the short term. It’s hard to imagine all those now-independent ex-Liberal senators will suddenly feel emboldened to strike out on their own — they already had the ultimate in job security. It also comes after the Liberals had already lost two senators, Mac Harb to the ongoing expenses scandals that has also engulfed three Tory senators, and Colin Kenny, who left the Liberal caucus after being accused of sexual harassment. Cutting loose some senators — not exactly the most respected politicians in Canada — may be a good move politically for Trudeau. He’s currently leading a third party in the House of Commons, and even with rising polls, he’s facing a tough Tory machine that has withstood a lot of attacks in recent years, and an NDP that showed its muscle in the last federal election. Frankly, the best thing about Trudeau’s decision is that it keeps the existence of the Senate on the political agenda. The Senate is undemocratic, a patronage plum and generally a waste of space. The NDP says it should be abolished. The Liberals say it should be reformed. Trudeau has thrown down the gauntlet to the Conservatives. We’ll see what their answer is in the weeks to come.

PC-speak has gone too far

T

here’s so much to say, but whatever comes out of your mouth can and will be used against you. It seems like the more we as a society accept people of different ethnicities, races, religions, genders and sexual orientations, the less we can talk about it, and this is because we’ve taken political correctness too far. The original intent of it was to use language that was inclusive. This basically meant using vocabulary that wouldn’t offend anyone. “Fireman” became “firefighter” to demonstrate gender equality, and that’s great. But there comes a point when people become so concerned with political correctness, that they’re scared to speak about controversial issues out of fear of offending people. Although we’ve made tremendous progress throughout the years in accepting people different from ourselves, the political correctness movement has censored the world. Issues of ethnicity, race, religion and sexual orientation are taboo in everyday life, and this is a huge step backwards. Sure, these matters are being addressed, but in the effort to be polite, people beat around the bush and opinions are watered down. No progress can be made if we avoid these topics to avoid offending people. And if we’re so concerned with other people’s feelings, we shouldn’t throw around words like “racist” or “sexist” when they don’t apply, which is much of the time. We steer clear of touchy subjects, not only to keep from offending people, but to avoid being terrorized ourselves if we’re not politically correct. Using the “wrong” word, without even the intent to insult, can put a target on your back for labels like “racist” or “sexist.”

MY GENERATION Abigail Ileto

Think about what racism and sexism actually are. Merriam-Webster defines racism as “a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race.” Acknowledging someone’s race is not racist, but many people seem to think it is. There’s nothing wrong with referring to someone as black, white, Latino or Asian, unless it’s used in a derogatory way. A lot of times it is, but a lot of times it isn’t. For example, saying “That black girl over there has nice shoes” is not racist. People need to realize that. It’s ridiculous that we’ve reached a point where people accuse others of racism for simply mentioning a race. Then, there’s the issue of sexism, which is defined as “prejudice or discrimination based on sex.” So why is it socially acceptable for women to criticize a man’s driving, but it’s considered sexist for men to criticize a woman’s driving? That in itself is sexist. I thought we were equals. And to keep everyone “equal,” children are now raised to believe that “there are no losers,” setting them up for failure and a tremendous shock when they leave the arms of their alltoo-encouraging parents. But that’s OK. They’ll always be winners, right? Now, I’m not saying political correct-

ness is bad. I’m all for it. It shows the shift in societal views by coining terms that are gender neutral and respectful to everyone. That’s what it’s supposed to do. The problem is that we’ve gone too far with political correctness in the effort to please everyone. Instead of promoting equality, it’s driving people away from controversial subjects to avoid hurting people’s feelings or having people get hurt themselves. People are hypersensitive to touchy topics, so much so that a verbal tirade ensues at the slightest mention of one. If we’re forced to censor ourselves on sensitive issues, our assumptions or things we’re simply curious about, then we’ll remain ignorant towards other people’s perspectives and the reasons behind them. Instead of being understanding and accepting, we’ll be uninformed and judgmental, but in secret. So for the sake of us all, lighten up a little.

LETTERS DON’T SETTLE

Re: My Generation teen column,” Friday, Jan. 24. I read Shantelle Chan’s column, titled “We settle because it’s easy,” and I found it thoroughly disheartening that a teenager can already be so jaded and disillusioned about life. I am one of those ambitious people constantly striving for what I want, despite obstacles and tragedy along the way. However, I don’t always view obstacles as a hindrance. I am a firm believer that life often takes you in mysterious and unexpected directions. In 2010, I moved to London, England to pursue a career in publishing, which never happened, but I did meet a man from Christchurch, New Zealand and subsequently moved there to be with him. I spent a year in Christchurch and although it wasn’t the happiest time in my life and I have since moved back to PoCo, I do not regret going. I could have easily stayed there and worked my way up in a job I enjoyed and married that man. I ultimately decided to move home because I knew none of it was a right fit for me. I went from living independently, being in a serious relationship and earning decent money

to moving home with my mother and becoming a full-time student with a negligible income. And that’s because I know that I can be whatever I want — within reason. In my opinion, the problem is that we dream too big, as we are encouraged from an early age that we can achieve anything. It’s important to dream, but it is equally important to set realistic and pragmatic goals. Otherwise you will be one of those people I meet that is in a job and/or relationship they hate and frozen in place, unable to accomplish what they want. As a result of me following my passion for travel, I am finishing my BA at 27 (nothing related to my childhood dream job of becoming a lawyer), while friends are attaining their PhD. When I feel envious of their academic success, I force myself to reflect on all the amazing experiences I’ve had all over the world. Each person wants different things and you need to put into perspective what will truly make you happy — it is easy to settle, but try to be one of those select few that know they can do better and actually attempt to attain that goal.

HELP GRIZZLIES

Re: “Bear viewing, not hunting,” letter to the editor, Friday, Jan. 17. I have just read Lindy Sisson’s letter to the editor with respect to the grizzly bear trophy hunt. I have been following all media on the trophy hunt and liken it to our own “Taiji” (dolphin slaughter). I would like the public to be informed that there is a rally for the bears to be held at the Parliament buildings in Victoria on Saturday, Feb. 15 at 2 p.m. This information is located on a Facebook page called “Stop the Grizzly Killing.” Jacqueline Hohmann Surrey

HAVING A SAY

How could Coquitlam not have a say in the Kinder Morgan pipeline approval process? I found myself asking this when Coun. Bonita Zarrillo had the foresight to table a motion that Coquitlam apply for intervener status, to request a seat at the table by the Feb. 12 deadline. Kinder Morgan plans to essentially triple its pipeline capacity, which will, for good or bad, affect Coquitlam residents near

THE TRI-CITIES NOW | FRIDAY, JANUARY 31, 2014

the Trans-Canada and Lougheed highways. Whether you see the expansion of the Kinder Morgan pipeline in Coquitlam as a risk to our environment or an economic boom, I strongly believe that we can all agree that whatever may happen there will be consequences for our community. Should our city not be aware of the risks associated with expanding the pipeline before any expansion is approved? Not to mention we must also consider the disruption in some of our busiest areas. Tripling Kinder Morgan’s capacity will involve construction that may have an effect on commuting. As well, should we, for taking on the risks associated with a pipeline that will be triple in size, not share in the gains? I do not write this in support of or against the expansion of Kinder Morgan. Rather I simply wish to highlight that with the motion tabled Monday, Coquitlam now has the opportunity to be involved with the approval process so a cogent decision can be made once all the information, and residents’ input, has been carefully considered.

Crews began demolishing the remains of the Mossom Creek Hatchery last week, after a fire there on Dec. 11. Two holding tanks containing coho smolts were left untouched. Mayor Mike Clay said the city is happy to lend a hand to the group running the hatchery, adding the facility is important to the community both ecologically and educationally. He also suggested the city would probably have to run its own hatchery if a volunteer group like the Burrard Inlet Marine Enhancement Society wasn’t doing it. “If we can waive $14,000

in fees … and they’re going to build a $200,000 hatchery and run programs and use volunteers, that’s a great investment for the taxpayers of Port Moody,” Clay said. As for the rebuild, crews were at the site last week to start the demolition. However, hatchery volunteers have suggested the rebuilding will be a slow process. The hatchery was started by two Centennial Secondary biology teachers, Ruth Foster and Rod MacVicar, in 1976 as part of a school project.

Outside investigation Jeremy DEUTSCH

jdeutsch@thenownews.com The internal investigation into an incident between an on-duty Port Moody police officer and a bar patron has been transferred to the province’s cop watchdog. Port Moody Police Chief Const. Chris Rattenbury confirmed his department has asked the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner to assign an outside agency to investigate the complaint against the officer. The investigation stemmed from a Police Act complaint made by Herbert Ramos and Tracey Ferris related to an incident and arrest on July 6 at the Golden Spike Pub. The incident came to light after a video surfaced appearing to show an officer using substantial force during an arrest outside the pub. In the video, a man who appears to be an officer is seen grabbing another man from behind in the neck area before slamming him into the ground. The officer was later identified as Ian Morrison in a lawsuit by the couple. The complaint was originally turned over to the Professional Standards Section of the Port Moody Police Department, but

Rattenbury said he wants an outside police agency to conduct the investigation, in part for the sake of transparency. “I think at times the public does have confidence overall in police investigating themselves. I think some people differ in that opinion … I felt it would be better to go to an outside agency where the investigators don’t know the people involved in the incident,” he told the Tri-Cities NOW. While an outside agency, likely from somewhere in B.C., will conduct the investigation, the chief will decide if the complaint is substantiated and what, if any, discipline will be handed down. Whenaskedforhisthoughts on the video, Rattenbury said he’s reluctant to comment while the investigation is ongoing. However, he did offer that while he doesn’t want to say what’s on the video didn’t happen, he would rather wait until the facts of the entire investigation are in front of him before forming an opinion. Rattenbury is hoping the investigation will wrap up soon, noting there is a sixmonth window from when a complaint is first made. According to the notice of civil claim filed by Ramos

and Ferris in July, Morrison assaulted Ramos and is liable for assault and battery, negligence and gross negligence. The claim suggested the city is liable vicariously for the actions of the officer. Rattenbury and Port Moody police media spokesman Const. Luke van Winkel are also named in the suit. In response to the claim, the city and the three officers named in the lawsuit have denied all of the allegations, none of which have been proven in court.

Live entertainment on tap for February Evergreen hosts comedy in the buff

They’re renowned for not leaving much to the imagination, except for the comedy itself. Theall-malecomedytroupe known as the Comic Strippers will perform at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre on Feb. 7 and 8. The show features some of Canada’s most well-known improv comics, including Roman Danylo, David Milchard, Michael Teigen, Pearce Visser, Ken Lawson and Chris Casillan. It follows an audience participation format that sees the fictitious male stripper troupe take suggestions from the audience while singing, dancing and “stripping.” Intended for those 18 and older, the show runs at 8 p.m. on both nights. Tickets range in price between $15 and $35. Call 604-927-6555 or

log on to www.evergreenculturalcentre.ca to learn more.

Love is in the air at Second Storey

Cupid meets the Newlywed Game as part of Second Storey Theatre’s latest creation. The PoCo comedy troupe will roll out an interactive improv series called I Heart Improv from Feb. 7 to March 15. Each show will feature “Affair” and “Swinger” rounds where teams are mixed and matched to see how they improvise without their partner, all while taking audience suggestions. “I Heart Improv is a show format where you can come and laugh as improvisers answer intimate questions about each other in front of a live audience,” Second Storey’s artistic director Graham Myers said in an email. “Whether you are a couple,

family or a group of friends, come take part in the exploration in love and frustration we deal with in day-to-day relationships.” The shows runs Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and tickets cost between $10 and $12. For more information, see www.sstimprov.com.

Social media meets experiment

Bill Edmonds has taken the term “blank canvas” to new heights. Edmonds’ exhibit, Talking to Strangers, is one of four installations showing at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts. It focuses on conversations and text messages he received from complete strangers over social media sites. The result is a case study in what people choose to present on social media, and the differences in their online and real-world personas are presented on each side of a

Also housed in the centre’s Atrium gallery is a tandem mixed media installation by Rachael Stableford and Marisa Pahl called Play. It features oversized pocket games from yesteryear juxtaposed against larger, more modern paintings that invite viewers into an interactive, user-based experience. “People can easily escape the details of the present time by using whatever technology is available to them at that moment. We constantly immerse ourselves in the technology of our choice, creating routines that focus

our attention on virtual versions of reality rather than the people, places and things that are right in front of us,” the pair said. Meanwhile, the abstract paintings that make up the You Are Here exhibit focus almost exclusively on the here and now. “I read recently that we paint in order to inspire others to create art. I like this idea very much because it takes us out of our vacuum and connects us,” artist Druh Ireland said. Finally, Ximeng Guo’s Shape and Shade features a singular subject — in this case, a tree — that’s meant to transform into any number of objects based on the graphic sources and personal experiences of the viewer. All four exhibits run through Feb. 22.

Turning the lens on their own

Artists featuring other artists is the gist behind February’s exhibit at the Port Moody Public Library. The Inlet Artists’ exhibit, Hands that Shape our Community, is a pictorial study of Port Moody area artists at work, depicted by local photographers Tracy Riddell, Gerry Moss, Rainer Daniels, Markus Fahrner and former city manager Gaetan Royer. The projects aim to highlight the ways in which these artists use their hands, while emphasizing their own unique processes of creation. Potters, painters, sculptors, illustrators, typographers and musicians are all highlighted. For more information, see www.facebook. com/InletArtists. — compiled by John Kurucz

inspection booking tool called WebPermits. With WebPermits you can: • schedule your inspection(s) online using

your computer or mobile phone; • reschedule inspections; • cancel inspections; and • review inspection results.

In 2013, Coquitlam’s building division processed more than 17,900 building and plumbing inspections, according to a press release from the city. The introduction of the WebPermits online inspection booking tool is expected to further enhance the inspection booking process

by allowing building and plumbing permit holders to manage their inspections at their convenience any time of day — from home, their office or even the worksite. To access the WebPermits system, go to www.coquitlam.ca/webpermits and input your building or plumbing

permit number. All inspections related to that permit number will be listed in scheduling sequence for each stage of construction. Users will also find a frequently asked questions page to guide them in using the WebPermits tool.

Crown lands for sale on Burke Mountain

The province is offering for sale 236 hectares (584 acres) of undeveloped Crown land on Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain. In light of this offering, the city has issued a press release to make potential purchasers aware of the community planning policies contained in its Citywide Official Community Plan (CWOCP), Northeast Coquitlam Area Plan (NECAP) and the supporting neighbourhood plans that pertain to these lands. The details listed here represent a brief summary of the city’s press release containing this information. To obtain the full details, contact the city’s planning and development department at planninganddevelopment@coquitlam.ca or 604-927-3430. The province has organized the Crown lands for sale into three property groups. The majority of Group 1 is located in the Partington Creek Neighbourhood Plan (PNCP), with small portions situated in the

Smiling Creek Neighbourhood Plan (SCNP) and the future Northwest Burke Vision area. About a quarter of this property group is primarily located outside the PCNP and SCNP areas and is identified as environmentally sensitive due to watercourses and very steep slopes (more than 36 per cent), which will limit development potential. Group 2 is located north of the Upper Hyde Creek and Smiling Creek Neighbourhood Plan areas, and within the Metro Vancouver Regional Growth Strategy Urban Containment Boundary. Group 2 also contains areas with very steep slopes as well as a number of watercourses as identified in the city’s CWOCP. The majority of Group 3 lands are outside the Metro Vancouver Urban Containment Boundary and, as a result, have no urban development potential at this time under the city’s CWOCP. These lands are either designated environmentally sensitive or for rural residential and resource uses.

Find the right place for your car’s needs

F

or many vehicle owners, finding the right auto body shop is nearly as important as finding the right physician. The average price of a new automobile continues to rise, and protecting that investment is of paramount importance to motorists hoping to extend the lives of their vehicles and maximize their investments. Part of protecting your automobile investment is finding an auto body shop you can trust. A trustworthy mechanic whom you’re comfortable with can ease any concerns you have when taking the car in for maintenance, whether that maintenance is a routine tune up or more extensive repairs. Though mechanics differ greatly, the road to finding one you can trust is largely the same no matter where you live. • Get a recommendation. Aside from his skill set, a trustworthy mechanic’s best friend might just be his reputation. Word-of-mouth recommendations from satisfied customers are invaluable assets for mechanics, and such recommendations should be equally valued by vehicle owners. When looking for a new auto body shop, drivers should ask friends, neighbours, coworkers and family members if they can recommend any local shops. If anyone

a dealership. But that can be a frightening prospect for those who have not done so in the past. To ease those concerns, drivers should obtain several estimates. The cheapest estimate won’t necessarily be the best fit for you and your vehicle, but multiple estimates should give you an idea of how much certain repairs should cost and who may or may not be overcharging you.

METROCREATIVE

If you’re looking for a new auto body shop, start by asking others for a recommendation. offers an especially glowing recommendation, take it to heart and consider that shop the next time your vehicle needs work. • Don’t be afraid to get estimates. Drivers who tend to agonize the most over finding a new auto body shop tend to be those with little history taking vehicles in for repairs. This group is likely growing thanks to the escalating costs

of new vehicles. Those costs are encouraging drivers to keep their vehicles longer, which means drivers are now keeping their vehicles even after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired and the dealership where the car had been serviced will no longer do so under the warranty agreement. In such instances, it might be less expensive to take the vehicle to an auto body shop that’s not affiliated with

• Consider the shop’s location. Recent transplants to an area who might have relocated for a new job often want to familiarize themselves with their new home base as much as possible, and this can pay dividends when a vehicle needs repairs. The lay of the land also should be considered by those people who have lived in the same town their whole lives. Auto body shops located in affluent neighbourhoods may charge their customers more for labour than shops in middle-income locales. And those escalated labour costs might not be sinister. Instead, higher labour costs may be a reflection of the shop having higher operating costs, such as rent, than its competitors on the other side of town. So when shopping for an affordable auto body shop, motorists should consider the location of the shop and how that location might ultimately impact

their bottom line. • Ask as many questions as you need to. Some drivers, especially those who admit to having limited knowledge of cars, feel as if they must simply accept a mechanic’s assessment and estimates at face value. Though a good mechanic won’t try to mislead you, it’s still good to ask as many questions as possible before agreeing to let an auto body shop work on your vehicle. When the mechanic diagnoses the problem, don’t be afraid to ask him to explain the problem, including what might have caused it. In addition, don’t be afraid to ask about service warranties, and be as specific as possible, asking what a warranty covers, how long work and/or parts are covered and if the warranty can be delivered in writing. These questions and their subsequent answers can provide you some peace of mind, and a reputable auto body shop should have no problem answering as many questions as you can ask them. Initially, finding a new auto body shop can seem like a daunting task. But seeking the help of others and taking some additional steps can make the process go more smoothly and increase your chances of finding a mechanic you can trust. — MetroCreative

without installing it first. You should be able to reach under the steering column, unplug the wires that go into the existing switch and then plug those wires into your new switch, which you’ll leave dangling from the wires for now. RAY: Then use a screwdriver to turn the new switch and see what happens. If it works, you can then remove the steering wheel and all that, and install the new switch permanently.

skills, since you hooked up a remote starter without setting your car on fire … yet. So hook up the light between the negative terminal of the battery and the positive (ignition) side of the coil. Then turn the key to “crank.” My guess is that nothing will light up. RAY: That suggests that the ignition switch is bad. So your next step would be to try a new switch. But, as you know and undoubtedly toss and turn at night thinking about, changing the ignition switch in the CJ-7 is a pain in the rear differential. TOM: So try a new switch

RAY: We were just trying to remember the last time we saw a ’79 CJ-7 in the shop, Michael. TOM: We couldn’t remember, so we also took a moment to thank the automotive deities for that small blessing. RAY: The first thing I’d suspect and test would be a bad ignition switch in the steering column. TOM: What you want

to do is test that “crank” position. When the key is in the crank position, both the starter motor and the coil are supposed to get power. RAY: The starter motor, obviously, gets power to crank the engine and get it turning. And the coil gets power to fire the spark plugs, so that once the engine starts turning, it will “catch” and keep running on its own. You’re obviously getting juice to the starter motor in the “crank” position, but maybe not to the coil. TOM: You can find out with a test light. You obviously have some basic

the starter motor crank and the engine fire up normally while the starter motor was still turning. Any ideas?” — Michael

Dear Tom and Ray: “I have a 1979 Jeep CJ-7 with a 5-litre V-8 engine. The ignition switch is the type commonly used in vehicles of this vintage, and it’s located on the steering column. It has an “accessory-only” position; an ignition-on, “run” position; and a spring-loaded, “crank” position, which activates the starter motor as long as you hold the key there. When I go to start the engine, I turn the ignition switch to the “crank” position, and the starter motor cranks normally. But the engine will not

These wines are easy on the wallet

W

inter is still around and the holiday bills are rolling in, so the budget for a bottle of wine to help make it to spring is restricted. But have no fear — there are some terrific wines that are easy on the wallet and deliver an abundance of flavour. As is the usual case, these wines hail from regions that consistently deliver value wines. Value wines are selections that over-deliver on quality for a lower price than other wines in their category. The four regions include three that consistently deliver on value, and one upstart that has been added to the

tial wine critic Robert Parker rates this wine at 90 points.

list. The three top value regions are Spain, Argentina and Chile. The other region is the Rhone Valley in France, where there have been a number of blends that have hit the B.C. market that are showing great promise. To assist you in finding these gems, wines from each region were reviewed and tasting notes, along with the

prices, have been included. All wines are readily available in B.C. Domino de Punctum, 2012, Viento Aliseo Viognier, $13.90 (Spain) This white wine has some interesting peach, tropical pineapple and lemon-lime characteristics. The palate is balanced and soft yet has a crisp finish. Viognier wines of this quality are usually closer to the $20 mark and influen-

Los Vascos, 2011 Sauvignon Blanc, $12.99 (Chile) Many consumers dislike New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc because it is too acidic and tart. This white, however, has delightful tropical notes and a soft, mellow taste. Aromas such as pear, peach, apple and chive notes fill the air. With good body and a surprisingly long finish for a $13 wine, it’s an excellent match for seafood, salad and most vegetarian dishes. Arnoux & Fils 2011 Cote du Rhone ‘“Vieux Cloucher,” $16.99

(Rhone Valley, France) This blend of Syrah, Grenache and Mouvedre shows red berry fruit, dried herbs, spice and a wonderfully smooth finish. It would pair well with any sausage or beef dish.

Argento, 2012 Bonardo, Argentina, $12.99 (Argentina) Not many consumers are aware of the native Argentinean grape called Bonardo. It produces lush and ripe tasting wines, and this example is outstanding for the price. Cherry, blackberry, juicy plum and cedar flavours mingle with hints of vanilla and spice. It’s great for drinking a glass on its

own or you could try it with barbecued ribs.

These wines may not have a familiar brand name or much marketing behind them, but that means most of the investment is in the bottle. This shows in the outstanding quality-to-price ratio. You don’t have to spend a lot to savour a fine wine these days, so stock up and enjoy. John Gerum is a wine instructor, writer and consultant with West Coast Wine Education.

Create tasty dips for Superbowl Sunday

S

uperbowl Sunday is just around the corner, and although I am not a big sports fan, you can’t help but be inundated by the media that this annual game day is fast approaching. Almost everyone loves dip with snacking chips, so I am giving you a couple of our favourite recipes. OK, the salsa is not officially a “dip” but it is still great and I wanted to give you a healthy option as well. Don’t buy pre-made store-bought dips and salsas when you can make your own much better. These are both best with tortilla chips, but you can choose your favourite dipper. I hope these recipes will enhance your game-watching enjoyment along with your other snacks and appetizers. I will, at least, be tuning in to watch the half-time show. Enjoy …

PoCo Coun. Brad West and his wife Ulla West travelled to Borneo to learn about orangutans. forest. Galdikas splits her time between Borneo and the Tri-Cities, where she serves as a professor at nearby SFU. Imagine our surprise when local villagers asked us where we were from and our standard traveller answer of “Vancouver” brought a confused look. Trying again, we explained we were from Canada. But where in Canada? A place called Port Coquitlam we explained. Smiles erupted. They didn’t know Vancouver, but knew Coquitlam — just part of Dr. Galdikas’ contribution to the locals. It truly is a small world, I thought to myself. As you interact with the

local orangutan population, you can’t help but establish an emotional connection with this amazing species. Every time we locked eyes with a baby orangutan or a mother keeping careful watch, we understood our similarities. No wonder — research has found we share 97 per cent of our DNA with them. Orangutans are among the most intelligent primates. They use a variety of sophisticated tools, construct elaborate sleeping nests each night, have complex emotional relationships with one another and have even exhibited linguistic and communicative skills.

the show has waned a bit, but not our commitment to do our part to ensure the revitalization of the amazing orangutan.

Unfortunately, and despite its status as a protected park, their natural habitat is disappearing at an alarming rate, as is the number of orangutans. Poaching and the illegal pet trade are depleting the population, with mother orangutans being killed so infants can be sold as pets. But beyond all other challenges, the conversion of tropical forest to palm oil plantations has been responsible for the majority of orangutan deaths and destruction of their habitat, with 65 per cent of Tanjung Puting National Park having been lost. Demand for palm oil is being driven by North America, where it is used in processed foods. It’s high in saturated fatty acids and has been identified by the World Health Organization as increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease and a host of other diseases. Despite this, the demand for it continues unabated. We came home committed to carefully examining ingredients before we buy at the grocery store and avoiding products that contain palm oil. As we prepared to leave

hey say that one of the secrets of a successful, happy marriage is compromise. As a newlywed, I kept this in mind as my wife and I began to brainstorm where we’d spend our honeymoon. My criteria was pretty standard stuff: sun, beach and drinks by the pool, but my better half had another idea. She was looking for something a bit more adventurous. Our compromise ended up being three weeks in Southeast Asia, spending two weeks in Bali and nearly a week on the island of Borneo. While the beaches of Bali were truly beautiful, it was our time in Borneo that will stay with us for a lifetime. Borneo is the third-largest island in the world, and is divided between Brunei, Indonesia and Malaysia. Home to a tropical rainforest that is 130 million years old, Borneo is also one of only two places in the world to find orangutans, the reddish-brown great ape. It was in search of this endangered species that we set out to Kalimantan in the Indonesian part of Borneo. From the minute our small plane touched down at the airport in Pangkalan Bun, it was obvious that we were in a very different part of the world. That became very apparent when we caught locals snapping photos of us, while we were snapping ones of the orangutans and wildlife around us. The humidity is beyond anything I had experienced; the air feels heavy and wet and engulfs your clothes in mere minutes. We soon boarded our modified fishing boat — and I use the word “boat” charitably — which would serve as our home for the next several days. As it chugged slowly down the river into Tanjung Puting National Park, our senses were overwhelmed with the sights and sounds of the jungle. Sleeping on the deck of a boat and under a mosquito net means there is no escaping the early rise of the bustling life around us. Nature’s wake-up call came at five o’clock each morning, as we prepared for full days of trekking through the thick brush. Much of our time was spent exploring around Camp Leakey, a rehabilitative home for rescued orangutans named after famed archeologist Louis Leakey. It was here that we came to learn of the Tri-Cities connection to this amazing place halfway around the world. Camp Leakey was founded by Dr. Birute Galdikas in 1971 to conduct field studies of orangutans and, over the years, has become a centre for rehabilitation and the rallying point for advocacy work to conserve the rain-

COMMUNITY&LIFE

Ornamental vegetables are great for container gardens

V

egetable seed listings are now a glorious circus of heirlooms, new colours, worldwide sources and increased resistance to pests. Plant breeders are also tackling solutions to climate problems. In small-garden spaces, ornamental vegetables are a wonderful bonus (at least until you harvest them). Peppermint chard is ahead of this game since you can cut-and-come again till frost. Its stems are red at the base, merging up into white. For container gardeners, this type of food crop is very practical. Cos lettuces such as the red-tinged Paris island can also keep on producing for many weeks if you harvest the oldest, outside leaves first. I have also seen red cabbage used this way in containers. Coloured carrots are always offered separately, but some catalogues list a rainbow blend of carrots that gives a long harvest since different kinds mature at various times. Beet collections in mixed colours also offer the same extended harvest. There’s also the new cauliflower, graffiti, which is said to be deep purple and shows an improved tolerance for heat. Different colours apparently show unique qualities. Lime-green cauliflowers are said to accept low-nitrogen soil while orange heads demonstrate high levels of betacarotene. Purple-tinged leeks are popular now and not entirely for their beauty. They’re also exceptionally cold hardy and are sold under many names, including the French heirloom “blue solaise” and Darcy’s purple leek. For brilliantly coloured salads, radishes have a lot to offer. Starburst (a watermelon type) has red flesh inside white skin. The heirloom black Spanish round has white flesh and black skin, while white icicle grows an all-white root up to 6 inches (15 cm) long. The rat-tail heirloom radish, dating at least from 1860, is still occasionally listed. The roots aren’t edible, but the seed pods give a lengthy harvest and are crunchy, nicely peppery and best when they reach about 10 inches (25 cm) long. Edible pod peas are very practical wherever you grow them because if you miss the early pod harvest you can still use them as shelled peas. The most height choices are for standard white flowers/ green pods. But some heirloom pod peas are available with interesting pod colours and sometimes two-tone flowers. These names include

BRANCHING OUT Anne Marrison

blue pod Desiree pea, dwarf grey sugar with purple flowers on an approximately 36 inch (90 cm) plant, and golden sweet edible pod with yellow pods and two-tone purple flowers. Winter hardiness can be a major issue with kale in some

areas, especially if it’s combined with intolerance of wet soil. Winterbor kale is one of the favourites for hardiness and productivity. But the English heirloom dwarf green curled (aka dwarf curlies) promises more. This one is said to tolerate cold, windswept unsheltered gardens with wet, poor soil. It’s described as growing up to 18 inches (45 cm) with tender, delicate leaves. Some edible and pretty vegetables may be too much of a good thing. Goldenleaved purslane is pretty and delicious but almost as inva-

sive as the green form. Another dubious blessing is the heirloom rampion (Campanula rapunculus) — once popular for crisp, white, edible roots and long spires of purple bells. This one leaves desperate gardeners in its wake as it steadily takes over gardens, roadsides and cracks in asphalt parking lots. Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via amarrison@ shaw.ca. It helps if you can add the name of your city or region.

Rockwood commits to Badgers Dan OLSON

sports@thenownews.com While the Coquitlam Express have taken to life on the road as of late, team scoring leader Adam Rockwood has put a new spin on the odometer over the past few days. Coming off a long road trip to Prince George — which the club will repeat this weekend with two more games against the Spruce Kings — Rockwood jumped on to a plane Monday for Madison, Wis. and returned a day later with a college commitment. The Coquitlam native will pull on the University of Wisconsin Badgers’ colours beginning in September, after visiting the hockey college campus. “Soon as Wisconsin started to talk to me I kind of knew that was where I wanted to go,” said Rockwood, 18, of the scholarship. “They have a great reputation, a great program and the coaches impressed me.” The second-year player said while he weighed other options, including Boston College and New Hampshire, Wisconsin was front-and-centre. Seeing the campus and hockey headquarters nearly clinched the deal. “What impressed me the most? Probably the rink — the Cole Centre is arguably the best college arena in the NCAA,” he said. “It’s just like a pro centre and as soon as I saw it, I didn’t want to leave.” The five-foot-10 centre has been Coquitlam’s offensive leader this season, tallying 11 goals and 49 assists in 47 games — putting him in a tie for third among league scoring leaders. Rockwood credits a lot of his success this year to coach Barry Wolff. “I’ve got to say a lot of it is also because of Barry, he’s showed a lot of confidence in me and put me in all kinds of situations to succeed,” the Centennial grad said. Coquitlam’s stop in Surrey ended in a 5-2 loss. Surrey netminder Devon Fordyce made 37 saves, with only Bo Pieper and Jace Hennig scoring. • For more on this story, visit www. thenownews.com.

Reynolds set for Sochi Dan OLSON

F

sports@thenownews.com ew things in the volatile world of men’s figure skating are assured, but Kevin Reynolds smiled and virtually guaranteed one element to his performance when he hits the ice in seven days from now at the Sochi Winter Olympics. His short program staple — the hard rock strut of AC/DC’s Back in Black and Thunderstruck — will be part of his musical accompaniment. You can be certain that a handful of quadruple jumps will be in the mix, too. This weekend the 23-year-old Coquitlam native leaves for the Russian resort city, with the necessary confidence and strut required as the Olympics begin Feb. 6 with the men’s team short program. “I’m looking forward to the whole experience but I think walking into the opening ceremonies will be special, and hearing my name called to the ice, representing Canada — that’s what I’ll be looking forward to,” he said Wednesday in Burnaby. “I think this is probably the best opportunity I’m going to get to do as good as I can at the Olympic Games. I want to take that moment and do the best I can.” Landing in Sochi is the culmination of a careerlong dream. But landing, period, became an issue this past fall as Reynolds battled through an awkward skate boot issue. Replacing his worn-out boots proved to be elusive — Reynolds’ narrow AA-sized heels couldn’t find a good match. Without a proper fit, his feet couldn’t get the proper lift-off for what has become his skating mainstay — the quadruple. As one of just three skaters to land a quad-tripletriple combo in competition, Reynolds’ Olympic hopes appeared to rest on the sole of a boot. Most frustrating of all, it came on the heels of a personal breakthrough, where the red-headed skater had won the 2013 Four Continents championship in Japan. A footwear solution was found in time for the Canadian national championships earlier this month, and with them the tools to secure a third national silver medal. It was the perfect momentum to propel him onto the Olympic team. “Going into the national championships I was feeling, let’s say less than confident with how everything was going,” he said. “Since then and since those performances I’ve been able to get back to training and just run the solos over and over again. That’s what I really need, to get [that] consistency for this week.” A Russian winter may be a synonym for a dark, bleak period, but Canada’s skating ranks aim to inject some Red and White onto the medal

We’ve pretty much all been to Russia before so we’re a little bit familiar with the environment.” Reynolds says missing out on the Vancouver Olympic experience — where he was an alternate — has served him well in the run-up to Sochi. “It was definitely the fuel in my fire for the [past] four years, knowing I came so close,” he said. “At the same time, I knew I had the ability

to be there and now my opportunity has finally come. I had a breakthrough season last year and it’s given me the confidence to know that not only can I participate in the Games, but also do enough there to aim for a medal.” Like many elite-level athletes, Reynolds’ original spark for the Olympiad was initially ignited in watching someone else achieve their dream, and how that reverberated across the country. “I remember watching Donovan Bailey win the 100-metre dash in the 1996 (Atlanta) Games and seeing the excitement when he won and how Canada really supported him after that,” Reynolds recalled. “I knew I wanted to take part in the CONTINUED ON PAGE 32

SPORTSN0W New boots Twa nails it in Hammer victory put quad MINORSOCCER back on track CONTINUED FROM PAGE 31 Olympics after that. I didn’t know what I would be doing — I was skating and [playing] hockey at that point, but I knew I wanted to take part in an Olympics someday.” Which brings us to the present. While the competition remains the focal point for the athletes, recent concerns over security in Sochi have raised a couple of red flags for participants and spectators. Reynolds notes that it’s on people’s minds and his family will take it in from the comforts of Coquitlam. “The cost is a little bit prohibitive and I think, a little bit of the security concerns them, but they are just not big travellers in general. I know they are behind me 100 per cent and they’ll be watching on TV all the way.” They’ll be watching to see his signature five quad jumps — two in the short, three in the free — and be a huge part of his global cheering section. Upon his arrival in the Olympic village, Reynolds will tackle the next few challenges with grit and grace. But there’s no denying that this is something amazing. “Of course, it’s an Olympic Games, right? It’s probably the most pressure filled [competition], but also I guess the most memorable experiences I’ll ever have so I’ll take it all in. But at the same time I have a job to do,” he said. “I’m going to treat the competition itself as any other competition.”

With a quick start, the North Coquitlam United under-13 boys Hammers demonstrated that they were in the zone. Nathan Twa’s marker just minutes into the game provided the Coquitlam crew with the jump it needed en route to a 4-2 doubling of Westcoast in minor soccer action. The Hammers also got goals from Cameron Braidwood, Marcus Grzac and Mateen Nasiri, as part of a strong offensive surge. Setting the tone at midfield were Habib Dbouk and Daniel Jung, as North Coquitlam kept pace in its hunt for a district title.

COQUITLAM Taking their win streak on the road, the Coquitlam Metro-Ford u-12 girls Renegades proved too hot to stop in a 2-0 win over Mission. Ava Mongrain gave the Renegades a first-half lead, followed by Sierra Santorelli’s tally in the second side. Posting a second straight clean sheet was netminder Diana Emelianova. Earlier, Coquitlam exacted some revenge for their lone loss to date by edging West Coast 1-0. Mongrain’s goal in the second half proved to be the difference, coming moments after Christa Tascona put a penalty shot just wide. • Behind a brilliant 3-0 victory over Burnaby, the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Threat locked up its third straight u-18 girls division title. Michelle Sami’s marker proved to be the winner, coming off a perfectly executed play. Boosting the lead to 2-0 was Amanda Ramsden, who headed home Natalia Kaczmarek’s corner. Paige Benning rounded out the offence. Picking up the team’s 10th shutout of the season was Veronica Aguiar, while Jamie Culpo was named the team’s MVP on the day. • Kaisha Markiewicz supplied the only offence

It was the fourth meeting of the season between the two teams — with each game decided by a lone goal. Sharp defence set the tone in the first half, with Isabel Antunes, Nicole Chersinoff and Olivia Dawson leading the way. Stopper Kirstin Davies, despite a nagging injury, proved to be a sparkplug in moving the ball forward. Christina Danielli appeared to give the TNT a lead on a breakaway shot that fell off

the crossbar, only to have it ruled not a goal. Risako Kazemi drew an assist on Markiewicz’s tally. Collecting her eighth shutout of the season was Alivia Ungaro. • The Coquitlam Metro-Ford u-17 boys Crusaders ran up against a tough opponent in round 3 of the Division E league championships round robin. Despite a strong game by goalkeeper Zac Webster, Coquitlam fell 2-0 to Langley. Also playing well for the Crusaders were Marcus Blackstock and Mateo Santos.
