jkurucz@thenownews.com It appears as though school is out for the summer in the Tri-Cities. The B.C. teachers’ vote for a full strike that could take effect Tuesday, coupled with rotating strike action today (Friday), has created the very real possibility that Thursday was the last day of school for students across the district. “We’re now trying to juggle — there’s a lot that goes on in a school at the end of the school year,” school board chair Melissa Hyndes said Thursday

afternoon. “We’ve got to make sure that our buildings are closed for the year. Kids will have to clean out their lockers, hand in their projects, and whatever else needs to be done [Thursday]. That’s not much notice for parents at all.” Officials with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation maintained confidence that a deal could be struck over the weekend to avoid next week’s strike. While Hyndes isn’t overly optimistic that will happen, Coquitlam Teachers’ Association president Charley King says he’s still holding out hope. CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

The next time you take a sip of water from your tap, you’ll be comforted to know the latest technology has gone into your glass of H2O to make it safe to drink. On Wednesday, politicians and media were invited to take a tour of the new $100millionultravioletdisinfection facility in Coquitlam. The facility, which is already operational, will treat water from the Coquitlam watershed and service the Metro Vancouver area, including the Tri-Cities. As water flows through the facility, it is first ozonated to increase its ability to transmit light. Then, ultraviolet light emitted from lamps is passed through the water to disinfect chlorine resistant organisms, like cryptosporidium and giardia, which can make people sick. The water is directed into

The facility runs 24/7 and responds to water needs on demand. Metro Vancouver worked with the City of Coquitlam to construct the state-of-the-art facility, which is expected to last up to 100 years and help meet the water needs of the region for 50 years. The Coquitlam watershed and the facility on Pipeline Road provide roughly 370 million litres of potable water a day, or about one-third of the total water supplied to the region. Construction on the new facility began in 2011. Port Coquitlam mayor and Metro Vancouver board chair Greg Moore said building such a facility through the regional district means communities don’t have to build one on

As water passes through the units, the UV light from the lamps passes through the water, killing the microorganisms.

Each lamp lasts about 12,000 hours or one year before needing to be replaced. Chlorine will still be added to treated water to make sure the quality remains high and complies with provincial and national standards.

Mayors project transit funding by tolls, taxes NEW TRANSIT STRATEGY CALLS FOR $7.5 BILLION INVESTMENT OVER 10 YEARS Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com After several months of work, the region’s mayors have put forward a transit strategy in Metro Vancouver for the next 30 years. And to pay for part of that plan, local leaders have proposed reallocating $250 million of the province’s carbon tax in the short term, while considering other options in the future like distanced-based road pricing and bridge tolls. In all, the Mayors’ Council on Regional Transportation strategy calls for a $7.5 billion investment over 10 years for myriad projects around the region. The strategy was released to the public Thursday. Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart, who sat on the subcommittee that developed the plan, said the strategy balances the needs of communities with affordability and equality. He said the carbon tax was

designed to reduce carbon emissions, and suggested the best way to do so is provide alternatives to automobiles. “It’s a perfect fit from my perspective to utilize carbon funding to reduce carbon emissions in this way,” the mayor said. In the alternative, the mayors would support a further expansion of carbon pricing. The plan, which must be approved by the provincial government, would also be supported by property taxes — capped at three per cent — along with new transit fare revenue, tolls on the Pattullo Bridge and $5 million in costsharing by the federal and provincial governments on major infrastructure projects, including the two rapid transit lines and the Pattullo. Stewart said he doesn’t want speculate on what the mayors would do if the province rejects the plan. “In the end, the health of this region depends on us coming to grips with sustain-

able transportation,” he said. The mayor suggested the region will be forced to spend even more money by building roads, which is expensive and not his ideal. “I don’t want to hand off to my children and the next generation, a Los Angeles sort of solution, where public transportation is almost nonexistant,” he said. Later Thursday, media outlets had reported that Transportation Minister Todd Stone said reallocating the carbon tax wasn’t going to happen, but he’s open to a new regional tax. As for the call for a tolled four-lane Pattullo, Stewart said he’s always preferred the Port Mann toll be dropped to $1.50, while a new Patullo would also cost the same. He said the challenge is governance and who gets to make decisions about transportation for the region. —with files Vancouver Sun

Incinerator question John KURUCZ

jkurucz@thenownews.com Coquitlam Coun. Neal Nicholson says waste incineration is one of the biggest concerns he’s heard about from residents during his time on council. That’s why he introduced a notice of motion Monday to solicit resident feedback on the issue at election time in November. Nicholson’s motion isn’t worded in a way that indicates a stance on Metro’s Vancouver’s plans. Rather, it simply asks residents where they stand on the matter. “I’ve probably had more people approach me with this question than anything else since I’ve been on council, except for maybe the shelter on Gordon Avenue,” he said in an interview. “I’m hearing from people from our community, people from outside the community, and certainly from people up in the Fraser Valley.” Metro is proposing to build one or more waste-to-energy plants in a bid to divert 70 per cent of recyclables from landfills by 2020, and 80 per cent by 2030. The idea to have an incinerator burn the region’s trash has been discussed for the past decade, and cost estimates suggest the facility would have a price tag north of $500 million. Metro’s business plan states that it expects

$

to reap about $100 per megawatt hour for electricity generated from its incinerator and sold into the BC Hydro grid. That price would net the regional district about $28 million annually if it opts to build a 380,000-tonne capacity incinerator by 2019, or $18.9 million for a 250,000-tonne facility. But the price projection is significantly higher than the current market spot price for electricity, which stands at about $45 per megawatt hour. That disparity in price, along with the advent of new technologies and higher residential diversion rates, is cause for a rethink of the plan, according to Nicholson. “The world has changed since Metro’s decision,” he said. “People are building mixed waste recovery facilities, recycling has considerably increased, the content of the waste stream has changed and the volume has probably decreased. All of those things impact the economic viability of the project.” If Nicholson’s motion is passed, the question put to voters will be non-binding, as waste issues fall under Metro’s jurisdiction. “But if three, four or five municipalities ask the same question and the answer is a resounding no — or a resounding anything, for that matter — then I don’t think Metro Vancouver can ignore that,” he said. — with a file from the Vancouver Sun

Honour those who serve

T

hey’re all heroes. That’s sometimes forgotten between the big tragedies that remind us. In 2005 it was four RCMP officers ambushed and killed in Meyerthorpe, Alta. This week all of Canada mourns three Mounties shot to death in Moncton, N.B. They are the latest to join the list of nearly 150 police officers murdered in the line of duty in recent years — at a rate of about three a year (That number does not include other job-related deaths such as traffic accidents). And as if to add a special reminder for those who are still too slow to get it, a Vancouver police officer was shot at and injured, along with two civilians, in an “incident” on Tuesday morning. The Vancouver incident resulted in a shoot-out in which police put their lives on the line in defence of bus loads of children locked down for their own protection at the nearby Science World building. That’s what they do. It’s their job. But it does take a special kind of person to do it. When we’re not mourning fallen heroes, it’s easy to point at the odd officer who goes astray, and to use their indiscretions — admittedly, sometimes, serious criminal indiscretions — and complain about corruption or poor training or lack of honour in our police forces. But the reality is that Canada’s police are respected worldwide — and the 20,000 or so Mounties and tens of thousands of provincial, city and other municipal police officers across the country have earned that respect. Despite the tragedies that befall our heroes like those in Moncton — or perhaps because our police bear the brunt by putting themselves in harm’s way — violent crime rates have been plummeting in recent years. And today’s Canada is literally one of the safest places in the world — and in history — for ordinary people to go about their day-to-day business. Honour our fallen heroes, certainly. But remember that they’re all heroes.

By the end of my senior year, I had applied to nearly 200 restaurants, retail both letters to the editor and opinion columns stores and city jobs. No one wanted me, may be reproduced on The Tri-Cities NOW website, and I was given two interviews. Nevertheless, I remained jobless www.thenownews.com. throughout my entire high school life.

LETTERS THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT

PARK DESERVES TO SHINE

On June 5, three members of the RCMP were killed and two others wounded in the line of duty in Moncton. This has been a terribly difficult week for every member of the Coquitlam RCMP family, as it has been for every Canadian whose faith in the safety and security of their communities has been shaken. I want to say thank you to everyone who has taken the time this week to write an email, a tweet or a card or drop off flowers, cookies and other gifts for our members or to take a moment during an interaction with a Mountie or staff member to express their condolences. I cannot tell you what a positive impact your words and deeds have had on our team as we mourn the loss of our colleagues. The atrium of our detachment is full of bright cards and flowers, a great reminder of why we do the job we do. Many who have dropped by the detachment this week have never been inside a police station before; some have never had to call police to make a complaint or ask for help. But in the face of this tragedy, each of you

I have been a resident of the Birchland neighbourhood for 21 years. Twice a day I walk my dog through Birchwood Park, commonly known as Spider Park. It is two hectares in size. Currently, the grass is knee high and it is not well groomed at all at the end of the forested trail. I am dismayed and saddened to hear that Spider Park is not slated to have its grass cut until September. The reason given to my neighbours when they contacted the city was to save money. Over the years kids have frequented the park, particularly in the forest. Sometimes the youth have been noisy and have engaged in activities that they should not be, but more often the younger ones are just having fun and playing hide and seek. The park used to have a playground equipped with swings and a digger. I recall having cherished picnics in the park often when my children were younger. They loved playing on the playground equipment. It was dismantled and removed several years back and combined with Birchland Elementary’s playground. One reason for doing this, we were told, was to deter

Supt. Claude Wilcott stepped up to make a gesture of support for our members and our organization and that means the world to us. Media coverage of the tragedy in Moncton, the successful manhunt and the heartwrenching regimental funeral has captivated communities across the country and around the world. What has captivated me is the overwhelming support we have received from the citizens we serve. On behalf of every member of the Coquitlam RCMP, thank you for your support. Supt. Claude Wilcott Officer in Charge Coquitlam RCMP

youth from congregating at night and also it was in dire need of proper maintenance. The park contains lovely trees for shade nearby that framed the playground area, where as the school does not — it is open to the elements. Without the playground anymore it has always looked empty and the vibrant aspect of children playing is long gone. Is it right that we accept and allow for slow erosion over time of what once gave us such recreational pleasure in our neighbourhood park? I have heard from my neighbours and we do not want to wait until September and stand by and watch our grassy little park area neglected. We want the grass cut and maintained throughout the summer on a regular basis. One of my neighbours had a great suggestion that would enhance the appearance of our little jewel, and this is that the city invests in standard signs identifying Birchwood Park as other parks are in the city. We need to work together on solutions to build a stronger, vibrant, more sustainable community. After all, Birchwood Park is the greenbelt heart of our neighbourhood and deserves to shine.

Seniors’ group secures support of cities COMMUNITY VOLUNTEER SERVICES FOR SENIORS FACES CLOSURE OVER LACK OF FUNDS

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com A local volunteer group that helps seniors with myriad programs, but is also facing the loss of funding, has achieved the trifecta of support from all three Tri-Cities’ municipal councils. Community Volunteer Services for Seniors (CVSS) operates a series of programs benefit-

Services Society. That program has not provided any funding to CVSS. Without the funding, Marg Gordon, executive director of CVSS, suggested the organization could be shuttered by the end of the year. So she was at the Port Moody council meeting Tuesday night, looking for support from politicians as the group tries to push the prov-

ing seniors across the Tri-Cities that includes grocery delivery, over-the-phone checkups and in-person visits. But the group, which has relied on the United Way for 50 per cent of its funding, is losing its contract at the end of June. Instead of funding the PoCo-based program, the United Way has chosen to fund the Better at Home program, which is administered locally by SHARE Family & Community

incial government to revisit the program. “We’re going to prevail. I don’t want this message to be ‘We’re not around.’ I want this message to be that ‘We’re fighting, we’re fighting hard and with your support we’re going to make it,’” she told council. The organization is also looking at bridge funding until it can implement revenue-generating plans. CONTINUED ON PAGE 11

Councillor calls group an ‘incredible lifeline’

SENIORS’ ORGANIZATION HAS MORE THAN 180 VOLUNTEERS, MOST OF THEM SENIORS

CONTINUED FROM PAGE 10

Council promptly approved the request to send letters of support to Premier Christy Clark and the various provincial ministries involved. Coun. Zoe Royer called the organization an “incredible lifeline” to seniors living in isolation and suggested she’s more than happy to contribute to the letter.

“It really goes to show what the power of people can do,” she said. The group serves 178 clients and has a volunteer base of more than 180 people. Most of those volunteers are seniors themselves, and former clients with the program. Weeks earlier, the group got support from Coquitlam and PoCo. At a council-in-committee meeting, Coquitlam agreed to lobby on the group’s

behalf, but not before at least a few councillors had some harsh words for the governing Liberals. “How could we possibly lock the doors on the volunteers? The provincial government has got to be crazy to do something like that,” said Coun. Lou Sekora. In April, the United Way of the Lower Mainland announced it will cut funding to 31 seniors programs across Metro Vancouver.

The organization attributed the cuts to a number of factors: dwindling donations, more competition for charity dollars and the proliferation of online crowdsourcing efforts. Meanwhile, CVSS is in the process of writing grants and organizing fundraisers to help offset its current deficit.

Co-op residents fear changes to subsidies

Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project Town Hall Meeting

Jeremy DEUTSCH

jdeutsch@thenownews.com Fourteen years ago, Mary Raffan moved into the Garden Court Housing Co-op near Coquitlam Centre as a single mom. She needed a chance to get on her feet, and expected to stay just two years. Instead, she’s lived there ever since, eventually becoming president of the co-op. “We’re very close,” Raffan said of the members in the tight-knit community. “If your neighbour has a problem, someone’s there.” She remains grateful for the chance she got all those years ago. But an upcoming change to co-op lease programs around the province has the president worried for her residents’ future. Operating leases on seven of 11 co-op properties in the Tri-Cities are ending in 2018, while another three finish in 2024, and with their conclusion comes an end to a federal government subsidy that helps some residents stay in their homes. That means several hundred Tri-Cities residents living in co-op housing could find

The Trans Mountain Expansion Project is a proposal to expand the existing Trans Mountain pipeline system between Edmonton, A.B. and Burnaby, B.C. It would include approximately 987 km of new pipeline, new and modified facilities, such as pump stations and tanks, and the reactivation of 193 km of existing pipeline. The Westridge Marine Terminal located in Burnaby would also be expanded.

The project is undergoing federal review through the National Energy Board (NEB) hearing process. The purpose of this town hall meeting is to gather questions from Port Moody residents and businesses to help the City participate in the NEB hearing process.

When: 7–10pm on Wednesday, June 25 Where: Inlet Theatre, 100 Newport Drive, Port Moody

Mary Raffan, president of a housing co-op in Coquitlam, is concerned for seniors who live in her complex. themselves out of a home in a couple years. Garden Court is one of the larger co-ops in the Tri-Cities with 99 apartments and 22 townhomes, with 37 units on subsidy. “Everyone who’s in a co-op is seriously worried about it,” Raffan told the Tri-Cities NOW. “What’s going to happen to all these people?” She’s even more worried for some of the seniors in the coop living on a pension who have no family and can’t afford higher costs.

operative Housing Federation of BC (CHFBC) is hoping to get the word out about the upcoming change to the subsidy through a campaign called “You Hold the Key: fix the co-op housing crunch.” The organization will host an event in the Tri-Cities next week for co-op members. Fiona Jackson, communications director for the CHFBC, explained that with the federal government out of housing, the issue is now in the hands of the province. The CHFBC is proposing the province set up a subsidy program similar to the one offered by the feds. “We’re saying now that housing is a provincial responsibility … the province needs to find a solution rather than having all these people in these federally-funded co-ops having to potentially find new homes,” Jackson said. The CHFBC suggested its proposal would cost the province an extra $2.5 million initially as the first few co-op agreements come to an end and top out at no more than $20 million. A co-op is a non-profit federally funded mixed-income community with no landlords where everyone owns a share. A board of directors runs each co-op. The CHFBC estimates about one third of people living in co-ops are eligible for the rent subsidy. In the Tri-Cities, more than 260 households will face a loss of subsidy by 2018, with that number rising past 300 by 2024. Back at Garden Court, Raffan said she supports the federation’s proposal for the province to step in, and is urging her members to get involved in the campaign. She’s also trying to work on plans to get a subsidy that lasts for a few years. “Someone has to care out there. It’s just a really sad situation,” Raffan said. The CHFBC is holding a campaign event in the TriCities on Thursday, June 19 at 7 p.m. at Falcon Crest Estates Co-op, at 1170 Falcon Dr. in Coquitlam.

Port Moody to look at ‘monster homes’

LISA KING/NOW

This house on Hope Street in Port Moody has drawn the ire of neighbours for being a “monster home.”

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com What might be a dream home to one person is turning into a nightmare for some residents in Port Moody. The construction of several large “monster homes” has residents up in arms, and city council looking at changes to address the issue. On Tuesday, council voted to take a look at the bylaw regarding height calculations for new houses. Several city councillors said they’ve heard concerns about monster homes sprouting up in neighbourhoods across the city, and want to act on the issue as soon as possible. Currently, a home can’t exceed three storeys or 35 feet above grade.

A staff report noted in many neighbourhoods, older buildings are being replaced by larger homes, and given the high land values the new homes are being built to the maximum size, often dwarfing surrounding homes. But even the report noted the issue is complicated because of the different slopes and grades on properties. Mayor Mike Clay acknowledged the problem of monster homes is growing, but cautioned the city needs to find a balance that works for everyone. However, he said he’s heard in some cases, people are building monster homes to live in for a year to avoid paying the capital gains tax, then selling. “It’s not someone building their dream house anymore,

it’s someone building their house to make money,” Clay said. “We have to do something. It’s frustrating.” He suggested one possibility is to calculate the maximum height based on the level of the lot rather than the foundation. While council looks to weigh in on the rules, the community is already voicing its opinion on social media. A group of Pleasantside residents has started a Facebook page called The Good Neighbour By-Law Port Moody, dedicated to stopping the proliferation of monster homes. More than 100 people have joined the group since it was started in late May. Hazel Mason, president of theMoodyCentreCommunity Association, said monster homes have been an issue in her neighbourhood for years, adding it’s time council takes a closer look at the issue. She said in some cases, people are losing privacy to the homes, and sunlight. There is one home in particular on Hope Street that has drawn the ire of residents. Mason called it the “horror on Hope.” She questions how some of the large homes in the area are approved by the city, and hopes people from all around the city will come together to change the issue. “It’s not neighbourly,” she said of people building mon-

ster homes. “It’s not friendly and it’s not polite.”

Council will look at the existing bylaw at an upcom-

ing committee of the whole meeting.

chia seed powder under the brands Organic Traditions, Back 2 the Garden, Intuitive Path SuperFoods, Harmonic Arts Botanical Dispensary, Naturallyorganic, and Pete’s Gluten Free. These products have been recalled and are being removed from the marketplace due to possible salmonella contamination. The risk to Canadians is low, but those who have bought the recalled products should consult their health professional if they suspect they have symptoms of a salmonella infection. Symptoms of a salmonella infection, called salmonellosis, typically start six to 72 hours after exposure to a contaminated product. They include diarrhea, fever, abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, chills and headache. These products have a long shelf life and may still be in people’s home. If you have these brands of dried sprouted chia seed powder, do not eat them. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the store where they were purchased. If you are unsure about the source of your sprouted chia seed product, do not consume it. Secure it in a plastic bag and throw it out. Then wash your hands thoroughly in warm soapy water.

HONDA SAYS TO USE ONLY ITS FLUIDS

Manufacturer’s fluids prevent corrosion

Dear Tom and Ray: “The owner’s manual for my 2010 Honda CR-V with all-wheel drive states that only Honda fluids may be used in the car, except for motor oil. The dealer’s service department confirms this. The rear differential gear oil, automatic-transmission fluid, power-steering fluid, brake fluid, engine coolant, etc., have to come from Honda, they say. Dire and catastrophic results are promised

RAY: We have an independent shop, and — with the exception of motor oil — we actually use nothing but Honda fluids on all late-model Hondas. The difference in cost is pretty minimal. And we figure, why risk a part that costs thousands of dollars to replace in order to save a few bucks on fluid? Especially with something like the differential oil, which gets changed only every 30,000 miles. Or the transmission fluid, which is changed even less frequently. TOM: The only downside

Your journey starts here.

(and it’s for us, not you) is that as more and more manufacturers demand that only their own fluids be used, we need more and more shelves in the garage to warehouse all that stuff. RAY: We had to practically buy out IKEA last year. Then we had to go back a week later and buy one more shelving unit to store all those Allen wrenches. TOM: So we don’t have proof that using Honda fluids is absolutely necessary, Stan. But we think it’s a reasonable thing to do based on Honda’s claims. That’s what we do for Honda owners who come into our shop.

Car detailing techniques from the pros

While it may seem like a straightforward task — a chore for some, a joy for others — there is indeed a right way and a wrong way to clean your vehicle. According to Lacey Elliott, car expert and spokesperson for autoTRADER.ca, some common mistakes people make when cleaning their vehicles may end up impacting all-important things such as resale value. “A car is, for most people, their second biggest investment after their homes, and it’s worth taking the steps to ensure that it’s looking its best.”

Wax sublime Most don’t bother waxing, but even just one coat will last a while and make a world of difference toward repelling dirt and grime, Elliott says. “Being able to claim that a car is in immaculate condition on your free autoTRADER.ca listing will only help sell it faster,” she says.

Clean the cleaners One guaranteed way to scratch your paint job while cleaning the exterior is to not pay attention to the sponge or chamois, Elliott says. Ensure cleaning tools are themselves cleaned thoroughly after every wash and inspect them as you go along for small stones, grime or dirt that can harm the vehicle’s paint.

Avoid washing when the sun is directly overhead, or at least park it in the shade so as not to expose it to harsh sunlight. “Soapy water won’t dry as fast in the shade,” she says. “So it gives you a bit more time to work towards getting it clean.”

Check out Coquitlam’s annual report Want to learn more about how the City of Coquitlam manages its budget process? Each year in late spring, the city — like other municipalities — is required to publish an annual report for the previous year, according to a press release from the city. This report contains important information related to city operations, including a financial overview, highlights and accomplishments. The annual report also includes the consolidated financial statements and auditors’ report, which verify whether the statements fairly present the financial position of the city and the results of its operations. The city’s annual report reflects upon the previous year and evaluates whether the city has successfully accomplished the goals and strategic direction set out in its integrated planning framework. This process is comprised of three separate but complementary planning processes: • strategic planning — the highest level statement of the city’s aspirations for the future developed with a long timeframe in mind • business planning — translates the high level strategic goals into priorities and associated work items established annually by council • financial planning — provides the resourcing strategy to support the strategic and business plans and includes both operating and capital components To learn more, visit coquitlam.ca/annualreport.

Wisteria may take years to start blooming “I have had a wisteria for several years that is full of leaves and looks very healthy. But it has only produced two flowers: one last year and one this year. Please advise.” Madeliene Quiban Coquitlam Lot of people have problems with a wisteria failing to flower. Sometimes it’s just too young. Five to 12 years is the average wait before blooming time, but some take longer, especially if

they’re grown from seed. If you inherited the wisteria when you bought your home, the wisteria could be a seed-grown one. Or perhaps

a cutting from a seed-grown one. Besides not flowering for many years, seed-grown wisteria are erratic bloomers — an occasional one never flowers at all. Sometimes people take a cutting from an old wisteria that’s full of flowers, but they don’t know how many years it took to get to that stage. Though cuttings usually flower faster than seedgrown wisteria, cuttings still need several years of vegetative growth to get started.

Wisteria is not the only plant that needs to focus on root and stem growth before flowering. Climbing hydrangeas also do this and so does the shrub wintersweet. But the fact that your wisteria has started flowering, even a little, is very hopeful. You can hurry your wisteria along a bit. High nitrogen fertilizer encourages plants to concentrate on leaves and all this does is make more pruning for you. It does nothing to help flower development. High nitrogen fertilizer is best left for plants where leaves are the big attraction. For wisteria, a high-phosphorous fertilizer is best because it encourages flowers. Wisteria should always be fertilized in fall (not spring). Wisterias like good drainage too. Could yours possibly be growing on soggy clay? Regular pruning is essential to keep your wisteria from outgrowing its support and to stimulate flower buds. In late summer cut back the new growth to five or six buds and tie any that you want to keep to your arbour. If the wisteria is getting close

Wisteria needs to focus on root and stem growth before it begins flowering. to the right flowering age, this pruning should result in flowers next year. The wisteria will keep growing through fall, so in winter you prune new growth back to five or six buds again, then in early spring cut back to two or three buds. This will make sure that any flowers are visible and not swamped by leaves. “I have a south-facing sunny backyard where I can plant something in an old, heavy, cement dual laundry tub.

parsley can easily be grown in a laundry tub. But roses are the plants that would really light up your backyard. Most “patio roses” are suitable for containers and the newer kinds flower all summer. The containers should be 18 inches (45 cm) or more in diameter. If your containers are smaller than that, you might try the larger-type miniature roses. The Flower Carpet series are estimated to grow about three feet (one metre) tall and would be very suitable for your tub. They’re available in white, pink, red, yellow, coral or apple blossom. Frequent watering will be very important because planted containers dry out fast.

Turn a cluttered garage into a clean one

S

pring cleaning plans are on the minds of many once the weather warms up. Many homeowners feel a sense of renewal in the spring, when the desire to clean house and get organized becomes a priority. Garages are often targets for homeowners hoping to target clutter. Once a space reserved for cars, garages are no longer strictly for vehicles, used instead to store items that simply do not fit inside the home or a backyard shed. Organizing the garage is typically a weekend or severalday project. Here’s how to turn a garage from a cluttered mess into a space suited for storing items of all shapes and sizes.

Categorize items that will be kept. Garden tools, camping gear, sporting equipment, and automotive supplies should be categorized and stored in their own areas of the garage, determining if certain items can be stored inside the home to free up garage space. Grouping items together will make them easier to locate in the garage.

Move boxed items into clear containers

Enlist a helper

Leave space for hobbies such as woodworking and crafting in your garage.

Organizing a garage is a significant undertaking that is best tackled with two or more people. Enlist a helper to make the project less intimidating.

Start the organization process by clearing out the garage and taking inventory of what you have. Items that have not been used for several years can likely be tossed. Make a pile of what will be kept and then put the rest at the curb or donate useful items to charity.

Decide what is important to keep

Give thought to where you want to store items Tools and items that are used more often should be stored within reach or where easily visible, while items that are not used as frequently can

METROCREATIVE

be stored higher up. Think about how you operate in the garage. Recycling bins can be stored closer to the door into the home, while bicycles and skates can be nearer to the garage door for easy access.

Group like items together

It’s much easier to see what you have when it is stored in clear containers. Some containers are interlocking or stackable, making it much more convenient to store items vertically and free up more floor space.

Invest in vertical storage systems

Moving items from the floor and putting them on shelving or behind cabinets can make the garage more organized. Hooks and bins also can be used. Employ a peg board full of hooks for oft-used tools or other items

you need at the ready.

Leave space for hobby and work areas Garages are where many improvement projects begin or where hobbies, such as woodworking or crafting, take place. Leave space for these tasks and hobbies.

Give the space a fresh coat of paint Some garages are dingy and dark. Bright paint on the walls and floor can open up the space and, when combined with more lighting, can make it lighter and brighter. Garage organization is a common spring cleaning project. But it shouldn’t be reserved for this season alone. Periodic checks of the garage and straightening up can keep a garage clean and organized throughout the entire year and make yearly spring cleaning much more manageable. — MetroCreative

Hard Rock Casino hosts talent search

Staff at the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver are looking for the next diamond in the rough. The Coquitlam casino will kick off its Rock the Mic talent search tomorrow, with auditions beginning Saturday, June 14 and Sunday, June 15. The summer-long battle of the bands is free and open to any musician over the age of 19. The 13-week competition will begin with 60 artists — solo, duo and group — with the field being narrowed down each week to five finalists. The top five will then meet in the final battle to crown the King of the Stage. Preliminary shows will run each Thursday night until late August, while the finals will be held on Sept. 11. Prizes include more than $7,000 in cash and a confirmed one-year contract to play at the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver. To learn more, see www. HardRockCasinoVancouver. com/rock-the-mic.

take your chops to the next level through a one-day guitar course at the Port Moody Arts Centre on Saturday, June 14. An advanced course for those 15 and older, Cham’s class will include right-hand finger techniques, arpeggios and fingerstyle applications in various time signatures. He’ll cover musical styles including classical, ragtime, folk, blues, jazz and bluegrass. The course runs from 1 to 4 p.m. and costs $60. Participants must bring their own guitar. Also offered Saturday at the arts centre is a family clay workshop for both parents and kids led by Pauline Doyle. Using stamps and cutouts, parents and children will work side by side to create fun decorations for Canada Day. The pieces will be painted with cheery underglaze colours and finished with a clear glaze, and will require a two-week turnaround before they’re ready to be picked up. The workshop runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon, and the $45 fee covers one adult and one child. Additional registrants will be charged $26.75.

Film looks at cancer THE FAULT IN OUR STARS

I

f you had months to live, how would you spend your final days? In Grade 6 there was a boy in my class whose cancer likely caused him to ask himself this question frequently. I never got to know this boy as much as I would have liked, yet something about his character remains engraved in my head to this day. He did not act differently around his peers. He did not wallow in misery or feel sorry for himself; he coped by appearing normal and healthy. He didn’t expect us to feel bad for him. He just wanted to fit in. The fact of the matter is that I had forgotten about this brave young boy until I saw Josh Boone’s adaptation of John Green’s best selling novel, The Fault in our Stars — a book widely appreciated for making teen girls (or pretty much anyone) bawl

CINEPHILIA

Joshua Cabrita their eyes out. This boy in my class came and went. He impacted the people who knew him and was forgotten by the people who didn’t. It’s a harsh reality but the truth is that most of us live, die and are forgotten. So you may ask yourself, what is the point of living at all? If you believe life doesn’t serve any ultimate purpose, does anything matter? Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley, who offers a naturalistic and physically believable performance), a girl with thyroid cancer that has spread to her lungs, struggles with similar matters. She copes through depression until she engages in a romantic relationship with the overly charismatic Augustus Waters. Boone’s movie opens with Hazel’s narration addressing how reality isn’t like the romanticized depictions or descriptions in novels or movies. However, she goes on to say this movie will be a realistic representation and subvert the formula of those

other movies and books while attempting to capture the organic truths. If it sounds overly impressed with itself, that’s because it is. The Fault in our Stars is sometimes subversive and raw in its asking of big questions and proclamations of enlightening statements. Because Green believes that Hazel and the audience must go through the pain for Hazel to overcome her psychological problems, the wise line “pain must be felt” is uttered multiple times throughout the film. The best movies about fatal illnesses make us feel the characters’ struggles while leaving us with a cathartic effect after the conclusion. At times I thought that this film achieved its goals; however, on other occasions I could not offer my pathos to a movie that feels cheaply contrived and overly manipulative. This confusing experience left me wondering if I had merely seen a classic example of “cancerploitation” or an actual raw depiction of life with the disease. The adapted screenplay by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (writers behind two great films: The Spectacular Now and 500 Days of Summer) walks the line between the two extremes while often tripping CONTINUED ON PAGE 33

Film feels contrived

Canada’s Online Lifestyle Magazine

TASTE OF TOFINO

CONT. FROM PAGE 32 on the trope of using cancer as a cheap device for sympathy. The writers craft certain scenes in an unabashedly contrived manner to manipulate the audience. There is a moment where Hazel has to walk up multiple flights of stairs to get to the top of a museum commemorating Anne Frank. With every step she struggles because of her lung disease. We’re supposed to be emotional because she’s risking her life with every step just to get to the top of this museum. How motivational! How emotional! Really? No! How stupid! This sequence lasts a few minutes and the entire time I questioned why someone didn’t just pick her up and carry her up the damn stairs. And why is it even important that she make it to the top? This cheap approach fails miserably when we consider why we cry or empathize with characters in movies. In the film, Hazel wears a shirt with the famous painting “The Treachery of Images” by René Margritte. Margritte’s surrealist artwork is an image of a pipe with the description “ceci n’est pas une pipe” (this is not a pipe) hanging

TRAVEL & LEISURE

Ansel Elgort and Shailene Woodley star in The Fault in our Stars. To watch a trailer, scan this page with Layar. below it. In other words, this is not a pipe but a picture of a pipe. Similarly, the movie the audience is experiencing is also not real people struggling with cancer, but actors’ depictions of the real thing. So if none of what we’re watching is real, why do so many cry? According to neuroeconomist Paul J. Zac in an article for Psychology Today, our brains release the same neuropeptide, oxytocin, to respond to the happenings on screen that they would release in response to a struggling stranger. Yet if we do not subconsciously buy into the authenticity of the characters or the circumstances surrounding them we cannot relate to or feel for them.

And so now I sit here and contemplate the boy in my class: the life he could have lived, the dreams he could have dreamt and the experiences he could have had. I had nearly forgotten him, but through this film my memories of him have returned. What is his legacy? The Fault in our Stars — a synthetic depiction of life with cancer — properly depicts the intense psychological aspects of the disease. It’s a shame that in too many dramatic moments the drawing of the pipe wasn’t coloured within the lines. If Margritte’s painting were this film, it would have the description “this is not a pipe and it barely even looks like one.”

SPORTS SHORTS INVITEES ON THE ICE

Coquitlam natives Dante Fabbro and Brody Willms received invitations to Canada’s World under-17 Hockey Challenge camp. Fabbro, who turns 16 next week, was one of 36 defencemen invited to the July 29 to Aug. 4 skaters camp in Calgary. The six-foot defenceman, a 2012 first-round selection of the Seattle Thunderbirds, has committed to play with the B.C. Hockey League’s Penticton Vees in 2014-15. Wilms, who turns 16 in a month, attends this weekend’s Hockey Canada Centre of Excellence goalie camp with 15 others. Last season, he played 10 games for the Okanagan Hockey Academy, posting a 1.77 goals against average, and played a pair of games with Moose Jaw of the Western Hockey League. The pair will be vying for spots on the Pacific roster for the upcoming World u17 Hockey Challenge tournament, which is slated for late October.

JOHNSTON JOINS HEAT

Port Coquitlam’s Dean Johnston will take his front-court game to the UBC-Okanagan campus to play for the Heat men’s basketball team. The B.C. Christian Academy Panthers grad committed to join the Kelowna university hoop team, where the club anticipates taking full advantage of Johnston’s six-foot-eight, 205-pound frame. “Dean’s a versatile forward that can score in the post and facing up to the basket,” remarked Heat coach Pete Guarasci. Johnston proved to be a prolific offensive contributor to BCCA, which saw the squad spend much of 2013-14 season ranked No. 1 in Single-A before finishing third in B.C. “I recently discovered how to use my body a bit better which gives me an advantage in certain areas,” said Johnston. “I feel like I am ready, but I have plenty to learn.”

MALAWSKY A FINALIST

Curt Malawsky is in some exclusive company — again. The Coquitlam native is one of three finalists for the National Lacrosse League’s Les Barkley Coach of the Year award. Malawsky steered the Calgary Roughnecks to a berth into the NLL championship final, where they fell to Rochester. The Roughnecks posted the third-best record in the regular season at 12-6, and set the pace offensively for a second straight year with 236 goals for. A star player with both Calgary and Coquitlam, Malawsky retired in 2009 and has been head coach in Calgary since 2012. Also nominated for the award are Rochester’s Mike Hasen and Edmonton’s Derek Keenan, with a winner announced in September.

LISA KING/NOW

SQUEEZE PLAY: Coquitlam Redleg Cole Walter runs to avoid a North Delta infielder tag during recent B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League action. The Redlegs gave the second-place North Shore Twins a tough test Tuesday before falling 3-2. Earlier, they beat the Victoria junior Eagles 8-5, with Josh Mickelson picking up the win.

Tribe shine with power of 10 Dan OLSON

sports@thenownews.com With a bachelor degree in business, Sean Camilleri knows the value of numbers. The power of 10, for instance, is very symbolic and universal when it comes to mathematics. On a baseball diamond, 10 barely quantifies. As the head coach of the Tri-City Indians midget AAA baseball team, the obstacle of having just 10 players would seem to be a major hurdle — with nine on the diamond, there’s only a single reserve to cover all the contingencies. Fortunately for the Tribe so far, midway through the 2014 season, 10 is working fine. “Honestly, we thought this was going to be a rebuilding year, where our expectations were to make the provincials and hope to do well,” said the Coquitlam native. “As we speak we’re ahead of where we thought we’d be, we’ve [qualified] for the provincials and now it’s about going and doing well.” In his fourth year of coaching the club, Camilleri hasn’t missed a provincial berth — a top-eight finish in the midget AAA loop clinches it — with third place the best result to date. Sitting with a 13-5 record, Tri-City currently sits in third place, just three games back of first place Chilliwack. The two teams are slated to meet for the first time in a double-header on

July 19 at Heritage Woods, the final games of the regular season. While that date may be circled on the team’s calendar, Camilleri says a lot still has to be done in the coming weeks to make that doubleheader meaningful. Defence, for one, must continue to improve. “Our defence is my main concern,” said the 32-year-old product of the Coquitlam Reds program. “We just did two hours of practice where we didn’t step into the outfield. [Defence] is the fundamentals, and we’re working with 16to-18 year olds and getting them to understand that.” On the other hand, pitching has been one of the team’s strengths. Last week, first-year hurler Brandon Jeon spun a no-hitter as the Tribe trounced South Okanagan 7-1. The Grade 11 Heritage Woods righthander, who struck out 10 in the effort, has stepped into the loop from AA and made all the adjustments to date, said the coach. “He’s turning into one of our more consistent pitchers, a very nice surprise,” said Camilleri. “I didn’t realize until the fifth inning that he had [a no-hitter], and then I was like, ‘I don’t want to say anything.’” Another Grade 11 arm, returnee Will Beh, tossed two no-hitters last year, while 17-yearolds Evan Bannister and Tim Wong are solid

members of the pitching rotation. Stepping in to close out most games is Liam Godfrey. Having just 10 players at his disposal creates numerous issues — any injury or ailment puts a game in jeopardy. Making a late-inning switch means looking at a solo choice on the bench. But the players have stepped up, he said, and embraced the extra playing time and responsibilities. “This is a fast-paced game, we work quick and a big part of it is having the pitchers limiting the walks,” he noted. “[Pitching coach] Curtis Hutson has a great rapport with the boys, we pitch to contact and want quality outs.” While the AAA midget circuit is not the B.C. Premier Baseball League — where the likes of the Langley Blaze and Coquitlam Reds are heavily scouted by colleges and Major League Baseball — it still can open a door, said Camilleri. Four players from last year’s roster are playing at B.C. colleges, while the alumni include Nick Alexiou, at McNeese State. The coach spun his Reds experience into a spot at Douglas College, then was offered two scholarships, from universities in Idaho and Arkansas. He chose Harding University, a Div. II program in Arkansas, and never regretted it. CONTINUED ON PAGE 36

Dove building case for defence Junior A’s rally to flip Islanders Dan OLSON

sports@thenownews.com Taking her hockey to another level has meant taking her studies in a new town. For Port Moody’s Whitney Dove, moving to Kelowna and the Pursuit of Excellence Hockey Academy has opened a number of doors. The teen has enjoyed a variety of hockey experiences, made new friends and upped her game — to the point where the 16-year-old was named last month to B.C.’s Canada Winter Games team. “It’s just an incredible experience, the hockey and coaching is really good — I’m loving it,” said Dove. Shifting from the comforts of home to a distant program — even if just a four-hour drive from home — required some challenges. But for a player who played nearly all her minor hockey up until bantam with boys, taking a chance just seemed natural. Especially when the end goal meant becoming a better player. “I think just being here since (last September) my skill level has definitely grown up, and I know the game a lot more, too, like where to be, my positioning,” said Dove. The POE program doesn’t play in a league, but travels to a variety of tournaments and exhibition games — so far she’s ventured to Toronto, Detroit, Calgary and North Dakota. At the Two Nations College Prep series in early December, Dove posted a goal and an assist while helping her team finish 3-2 against such highstakes competition as Detroit, Honeybaked, Brampton, Mississauga and London. It provided college scouts with a glimpse at the next up-andcoming scholarship prizes, an aspect which Dove admits she’s keenly interested in. “That’s my big goal, to hopefully play hockey at a U.S. college somewhere, where ever [hockey] takes me.” In 49 games with the touring team, Dove has accumulated six goals and 10 assists, leading the team’s defence in points, along with 30 penalty minutes.

Athird-periodflurrycarried the Coquitlam junior Adanacs past the Delta Islanders 14-10 on Wednesday. Powered by the return of Wes Berg, Coquitlam shook off a 6-2 deficit in the second period, pulling within two at the end of the middle frame. In the third, Berg scored three times and Chase McIntyre added a pair to deliver the Adanacs’ 12th win of the season. Berg would finish with four goals and two assists, while Jean-Luc Chetner would contribute two goals and four helpers. Also scoring twice was Cole Shafer, with singles by Michael Messenger, Tyler Pace, Taylor Stuart and Evan Wortley. The Adanacs hold a onepoint lead over New West in

the battle for top spot with a 12-1-1 record. The two teams meet next Wednesday, 7:30 p.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre. • As rebuilding seasons go, the 2014 B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League year has been stuck on the scrapheap for the Port Coquitlam Saints. The squad suffered another hard lesson on Tuesday, when New Westminster delivered a 20-5 pounding. Outscored 10-1 in the first and trailing 16-2 after 40 minutes, PoCo did its best to keep pace in the third. Scoring for the Saints were Tanner Fisher and Matt Symes, with two each, and Colby Beveridge. PoCo’s next test comes June 20, against Langley, 8 p.m. at the Rec Centre.

Port Moody’s Whitney Dove is enjoying life as a student-athlete at Kelowna’s Pursuit of Excellence program, which helped her make B.C.’s under-18 girls hockey team. With body checking not permitted in female hockey, Dove said a big part of her game is applying physical pressure on opposing forwards — with contact sometimes bordering on the rough side. “My style of play is certainly to be physical,” she said. “You can rub people out, move them off the puck and out of the slot. You can’t hit but you can separate people from the puck, and I love that part of the game.” And while she had no qualms about playing minor hockey among the boys before spending the previous few years with the Tri-City Predators and Fraser Valley Phantom female programs, Dove said being on a POE girls

squad has been a lot of fun. “I think a lot of the appeal was being with a bunch of girls, we have the same goals and are following the same routines to be the best we can be,” she noted. “We’ve got players from Switzerland, Australia and a couple from the U.S., but most are Canadian.” Coming full circle, Dove is eagerly anticipating the Canada Winter Games next year, skating with former Predators teammate and PoCo product Shannon MorrisReade. The process to make that team involved a couple of camps and a week-long tryout late last month. “It was gruelling. I was at the top-80 (players) camp and

then to the 40-player camp… It was nervewracking going in but I was really excited to get selected,” she said, noting that a year ago she was called up to the provincial under-18 team and got a taste of what the older age group experiences. “I know what to expect.”

“That was an awesome four-year experience,” he recalled. “It was a real college experience, but I never even knew where Arkansas was. It was a lot of fun, we played the top-team in the nation in our conference and as a freshman [I] got to experience a championship tournament… We never got back there again, so I learned you need to relish your opportunities.” At Harding, the outfielder tied the program’s then consecutive-game hit record, and in that freshman year was named to the All-Gulf South Conference second team, following a schoolbest freshman year where he established rookie records for atbats, runs, hits and doubles, with a .354 batting average. Finishing his degree in four years was another major highlight in a career that saw him absorb a lot of lessons and experiences at a new level. That’s what he encourages all his players to do, and feels the B.C. midget AAA league is a good place for many to make that first step. Now, his focus remains on the next game and continuing the chase for first. “There’s still five weeks to go in this race,” said Camilleri, 32. “We’re in the hunt but you’ve got to take every game serious. Anybody can catch fire.”
