HOMICIDE INVESTIGATORS TAKE OVER IN COQUITLAM

Jeremy DEUTSCH

jdeutsch@thenownews.com To most who lived along the quiet Coquitlam street, it would appear the home in the 1100-block of Cottonwood Avenue belonged to a fairly typical family. But some neighbours say the family was tearing apart at the seams and there is speculation the end of a marriage might be the reason why two people died in a house fire there late Monday night. Coquitlam Fire & Rescue were originally called to the home before midnight to the report of a struc-

ture fire. That’s when crews found the bodies of a man and a woman inside. By Tuesday morning, the RCMP’s Integrated Homicide Investigation Team had been called in to assist in the investigation. RCMP Sgt. Jennifer Pound said IHIT was called in because the preliminary findings suggest the deaths are suspicious. However, she said it wasn’t clear if the deaths were a result of the fire, adding an autopsy would be preformed to determine whether a homicide occurred. “Ultimately the autopsy is going to have to speak CONTINUED ON PAGE 6

JEREMY DEUTSCH/NOW

Port Moody police were called to a disturbance near a St. Johns Street pub on Saturday night, resulting in a couple being taken into custody. A video of the man’s arrest is now a central piece to a complaint. After ushering the two out the door, the bar decided to call police. Semenuik said the bar has a good relationship with the department and the officer in question, adding she’s never seen police act inappropriately. She said there is no video surveillance of the outside, but there is of the inside of the bar that would show the behaviour of the couple before they were kicked out. However, the man who took the video and then posted it online is telling a different story. Devin Shepherd, who is an acquaintance of the couple, was outside of the bar and decided to start

filming as soon as police arrived. He insisted the police immediately approached the man and contrary to the department’s version of events, didn’t give a verbal warning or engage in a discussion. Shepherd said the man was not acting out or resisting police orders. “From my perspective, I would think the officer would have tried to resolve any matter, or try to find out what’s going on, or talk to him, or something like that, but that wasn’t the case,” he told the Tri-Cities NOW. “What I caught on video is what happened.” The PoCo resident said he only

managed to shoot just 18 seconds of video because he was asked to leave the property by bouncers. Though Shepherd acknowledged the couple did engage in a verbal altercation with the bar staff at the time, he said he never saw the pair do anything violent inside the bar. He said he also decided to post the video because of how the officer handled the situation. “It could have been really bad,” he said, adding the acquaintance did go to the hospital after the incident. Van Winkel stated the department does take any allegations of misconduct by officers seriously.

Council votes to hold Coquitlam byelection VOTING DAY TO REPLACE TWO COUNCILLORS LIKELY TO BE IN OCTOBER

Sam SMITH editorial@thenownews.com Coquitlam residents will be heading back to the polls possibly as early as this fall for a byelection to replace former city councillors Linda Reimer and Selina Robinson. Coquitlam city council voted 4-2 on the byelection, with Mayor Richard Stewart and Coun. Mae Reid voting against. The two argued that the money saved by going forward with two vacant positions and historically low voter turnout in byelections outweighs the need for two more councillors before the next scheduled municipal election in 2014. “Here I am one of the strongest supporters of democracy, I absolutely believe in democratic principles, and here I am struggling with this one enormously,” Stewart said, adding he defends the two’s rights to run for another office. “I want those council members to feel like they should be able to go up to higher levels of government.” Councillors should have the option to move up to provincial or federal levels as they can then bring their experience and voice

from local government with them, he said. Coun. Brent Asmundson did not agree with the mayor. “It’s the cost of democracy. People voted in the regular election for eight councillors, one mayor, that was their expectation and I think we should fulfill that part,” he said. “Running for council you make a commitment to the electorate that’s going to vote for you.” Asmundson did not share the mayor’s excitement of having former colleagues move up to provincial government, as he believes it won’t change how things are run at Coquitlam City Hall. “Having people move up has happened from municipal government to federal and provincial government and we haven’t gotten a lot further in our increase of eight per cent or on our issues,” he said. Couns. Terry O’Neill and Neal Nicholson mir- Coun. Brent rored Asmundson’s sentiments. Quoting Oscar Wilde, O’Neill said “Nowadays, people know the price of everything and the value of nothing.” Nicholson said the byelection isn’t going to hurt taxpayers, as it’s already budgeted for. “I want us to do what’s right and accept the resignations of the councillors who’ve left and move forward into a byelection,” he said.

Coun. Lou Sekora said Reimer and Robinson should have resigned the day after they were elected. “They should have known better,” he said. Reid defended their hesitation, as she feels they were being considerate of both the taxpayer and council and leaving it in the city’s hands to choose what it feels is best. The cost of a byelection is estimated to be $150,000. Councillor salary and benefits per year is $53,836. If no byelection were to happen, the city would save $311,508. However, that forces more work on the seven remaining elected officials, while there is a cash reserve of $639,000 to cover the cost of such an election. Both Reimer and Robinson have not been paid since the spring. Reimer and Robinson have served as councilAsmundson lors in Coquitlam since 2008. In May, Reimer was elected MLA for Port Moody-Coquitlam and Robinson for Coquitlam-Maillardville. Since the provincial election, both councillors have been on unpaid leave. They had requested a leave of absence until Jan. 3, 2014 to allow city council to bypass the need for a byelection. The next municipal election will take place later in 2014. City staff stated a byelection will most likely happen in October, although no official date has been set as of yet.

Firefighters and paramedics help a woman who was caught in an explosion in her car Friday in Port Moody. Police are investigating the cause of the explosion. Parker estimated each tank to be about 200 litres in size, although they weren’t full at the time of the blast. Parker explained there was likely a build up of vapors and given the heat outside when the woman started the vehicle, it also started up the electric pumps, triggering the explosion. However, the tanks did not explode in this case. Parker suggested if the van had ended up in a collision on the streets, the result would have been catastrophic. One witness, who did not want to be identified, said she was sitting in her car beside the van waiting to pick her daughter up at the restaurant when the explosion occurred. She said it appeared a young woman was trying to start the

van when it exploded. The witness said the victim was able to make it out of the truck. According to several witnesses, the explosion was heard and felt several blocks away. Ellicia Hobbis was working across the street at Caps Westwood Cycle when she heard the blast. “When we realized it was an explosion, it was a bit more unnerving,” Hobbis said, describing the condition of the truck as though it looked like a can opener ripped the roof off. By 3 p.m., the busy street was shut down in both directions as both police and fire crews continued the investigation. The McDonald’s was also closed briefly after the explosion.

PoCo council nixes shelter Jeremy DEUTSCH

jdeutsch@thenownews.com A shelter for the homeless in the Tri-Cities appears to be homeless itself. On Monday, Port Coquitlam city council voted to turn down a temporary use permit by the Hope for Freedom Society to operate a shelter at the Grace Campus of Northside Church for two seasons. The decision following a public hearing on the issue has sent the society’s managing director Rob Thiessen reeling. “It comes down to them [council] not understanding the greater good,” he told the Tri-Cities NOW on Tuesday. And Thiessen said as it stands now, there is no homeless shelter for the entire Tri-Cities. “Right now that’s exactly what’s happening, there will be no shelter this fall and the following fall and winter,” he said. With less than three months before the shelter was to open on Oct. 1, Thiessen is doubtful there is enough time to get a backup plan in place. City staff and the city’s own smart growth committee supported the permit. However, the city received roughly a half dozen complaints over the course of the shelter’s first season in operation, and those complaints centred around litter, drug use, noise and loitering. Thiessen contends shelter clients did not

cause the incidents in question. But a handful of residents also spoke out against the shelter at the public hearing. Only Coun. Mike Forrest and Mayor Greg Moore voted in favour of issuing the permit. The mayor, though he voted in favour of the shelter, noted concerns by residents needed to be addressed before council made a decision. Moore said the sense from council isn’t that the society hasn’t done a good job, but rather council couldn’t ignore resident’s concerns. He did suggest the society could come back with a different operating model, including the previous model that saw five churches across the Tri-Cities rotate shelters. Moore also noted members of the society didn’t speak up at the hearing to address neighbours’ concerns or the timing of an alternative. Coun. Brad West told the Tri-Cities NOW Tuesday that several residents expressed concern at the public hearing over incidents they felt were not being taken care of by the Hope For Freedom For Society: alcohol consumption on their properties, along with litter, fights, yelling and profanity. “I’m embarrassed to have supported it the first time,” he said, referring to last year’s vote to approve the initial temporary use permit. To the suggestion the society come back with another proposal, Thiessen said he doesn’t know how to mitigate “phantom issues.”

Sustainable seafood has become more and more popular in recent years, thanks to heightened awareness around the issues of overfishing and unsustainable fishing practices, and initiatives such as Ocean Wise, Vancouver Aquarium’s national sustainable seafood program. This increased awareness has sparked questions among consumers as to where they can enjoy sustainable sushi options in the Vancouver area. The good news is that there are a growing number of Ocean Wise restaurants that provide sustainable sushi options on their menu (see below for a sample list of Ocean Wise sushi partners).

point where many of our customers come to our restaurant because we are an Ocean Wise partner. We even go so far as to provide a number of menu options that are made of 100 per cent Ocean Wise recommended seafood, such as our original Sakura Roll and Seafood Shooter.”

Sous chef Alan Ferrer of Minami Restaurant echoes a similar sentiment. Aburi Restaurants Canada opened Minami in Yaletown last June, which is a sister establishment to the ever-popular Miku Restaurant, which opened in 2007.

“Sourcing sustainable seafood for sushi is difficult, and there is always the balance that needs to be struck between providing green options and meeting our business imperatives,” says Ferrer. “However, we are taking on the commitment to provide and expand Ocean Wise Zen Japanese menu options, and aim to Restaurant’s original Ocean Wise Sakura Roll do our part in educating - seasoned tuna and consumers on what zucchini tempura sustainable seafood rolled in egg crépe, options are available.” Och i, 604 Creative

jdeutsch@thenownews.com Port Moody Police continue to investigate an explosion that ripped apart a van in the parking lot of the McDonald’s on St. Johns Street last week. Port Moody Police Const. Luke Van Winkel said investigators are still looking into the issue around the safe storage of fuel, rather than it being criminal in nature. “At this point it just looks like an accident,” he told the Tri-Cities NOW. The incident began before 2 p.m. Friday when a van in the restaurant’s parking lot exploded. Police and fire crews were quickly on scene after the explosion putting out the vehicle blaze. One woman was taken away by paramedics with reportedly serious injuries and burns, but was later released from hospital. The white van was destroyed. Both witnesses and emergency crews said the blast could have turned out much worse. “I think everyone’s very fortunate nothing worse happened,” Van Winkel said, adding he wasn’t able to comment on how the woman and the truck were related. Port Moody assistant fire chief Gord Parker said his own investigators concluded the van was improperly being used to store fuel. He noted inside the van were two separate tanks hooked up to electric pumps to move gas from one tank to another.

The road to sustainable sushi isn’t always an easy one, but it’s well worth the journey.

Zen Japanese Restaurant in West Vancouver was Canada’s first Ocean Wise sushi partner, and joined the program in 2009. With the help of Ocean Wise, the team at Zen was able to replace unsustainable seafood options with Ocean Wise choices. “Prior to joining the Ocean Wise program, we practiced seafood sustainability on our own,” said the restaurant’s chef, Nobu Ochi. “However, it just became harder and harder to find accurate information on what is sustainable, so that’s why we jumped on board, and used information provided by Ocean Wise to help us in our quest to source sustainable ingredients,” he adds. It hasn’t always been an easy endeavor to source sashimi-grade Ocean Wise seafood for his sushi, but Ochi is committed to providing sustainable options, even with the challenges that may come with it. “It is well worth the effort because we are committed to seafood sustainability, to the

Mike McDermid, partner relations manager of the Ocean Wise program, says that one factor challenging the sustainability of seafood for sushi is the popularity of relatively few items for sushi – specifically shrimp/prawns, tuna and salmon – each of which has ocean-friendly and non-ocean friendly choices. He advises consumers to support Ocean Wise partners who offer sushi, such as Zen and Minami, and select menu options labeled with the Ocean Wise symbol.

“One opportunity provided by non-traditional cuisines in our market, such as sushi, is that it can introduce us to new and potentially more sustainable variety of seafood options,” says McDermid. “Good examples of nowpopular sustainable sushi options include local albacore tuna, sablefish and B.C. spot prawns, in addition to items like mackerel, sea urchin, and geoduck.” You can be part of the solution by choosing Ocean Wise menu items at partner restaurants.

Though RCMP weren’t saying much, neighbours who spoke to The Tri-Cities NOW told a story of a family in tatters. John Cooke lives next door and heard a scream coming from the house just after watching the 11 o’clock news. Then he heard a sound like glass shattering and a small explosion. When he looked out his window, he could see flames shooting out from the back of his neighbour’s house. According to neighbours, a family of five had apparently been living in the home since 1999. Inside lived the couple with three kids, the eldest, a daughter, was said to be in Regina for RCMP training, while two younger boys were described

as being in their late teens or early 20s. The house was also home to a French daycare run by the mom. But Cooke said he heard the woman had filed for divorce a few months ago, and the husband was living in a separate home nearby. The house on Cottonwood had recently been sold. A for sale sign was still on the lawn Monday night. Cooke said the husband appeared to take the divorce hard. “He seemed to be pretty mad,” the neighbour told The Tri-Cities NOW. He also said the man, who was described along with his wife as being in their late 40s or early 50s, had anger issues

and didn’t get along all that well with the rest of the neighbourhood. Nancy Palecek lives at the end of the street. She heard a call for help around the same time, but thought it was coming from nearby Como Lake. When she went out to see, a neighbour told her there was a fire down the street. As Palecek watched fire and police crews at the scene under the night sky, she said she had also heard there was a lot of fighting going on at the house. Though she didn’t know the family that well, she said her own daughter used to sell Girl Guide cookies to the mom. Palecek said the family seemed to be nice, also suggesting the

daycare was thriving She was surprised to see the house go up in flames. “You never know what goes on behind closed doors,” Palecek said. Richard Place came by to check out the scene Tuesday morning. His five-year-old daughter had been attending the daycare for several years and thought highly of the mother. “[She was] a really amazing person,” he said. “She ran a daycare for the sake of kids, she loved her kids.” But Place also described a troubled relationship between the couple. “It’s one of those things where you don’t expect that to happen so close to you.”

Another rescue requires outside help COQUITLAM RESCUE CREW AWAITS ARRIVAL OF KIT

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com It looked like just another day’s work for Coquitlam Search and Rescue. Over the weekend, a 27year-old man was plucked off of Burke Mountain after getting lost on Goat Trail. The man had managed to get himself into a tricky spot in a gully, spending Saturday night out in the woods. He was eventually spotted the next morning. The situation forced the team to perform a long line rescue to bring the man to safety. It was the fifth time such a rescue had to be undertaken by the local SAR this year and second in less than a week. And each time, the organization has had to call on colleagues from other rescue teams to help with the task. In this case, it was North Shore Rescue. It’s not something Coquitlam SAR officials want to do, but at this point have no choice. The team has been waiting for a rope and harness kit for its Helicopter External TransportationSystem(HETS)

for more than a year. The team’s HETS was shelved last fall after a piece of rescue equipment was decertified by Transport Canada. More specifically, the company that produces the equipment, Emergco, based out of North Vancouver, lost its manufacturing certificate. The company is the only manufacturer of the kit in the country. The wait for the equipment has been frustrating for the SAR team, especially since the team has been told on several occasions the kit is on the way, only to be held up. Ian MacDonald, a search manager with Coquitlam SAR, said the organization has the money — about $60,000 — for the kit and the trained personnel. He explained in the case of the most recent rescue, the team having its own operational HETS could save hours in a rescue operation. Right now, once a decision is made to use the system, members from another team need to be brought in for the rescue. “It prolongs suffering and in some cases it could be a matter between life and death having

to bring in another mutual-aid team for a long-line rescue,” MacDonald said. The organization is reluctant to look outside Canada for a kit due to higher costs. Though at first blush this would appear to be a case of bureaucracy run amuck, the reason why Coquitlam SAR isn’t out right now performing long line rescues is a little more complicated. Transport Canada originally certified the design of the HETS equipment in 1998.

that the company could no longer make spare parts or new kits. The agency also pointed out that since the equipment is hooked to a helicopter, it must meet certification standards as outlined in Canadian aviation regulations. Transport Canada said it needs to verify that each part of the HETS kit conforms to the approved drawings and processes.

Emergco was then authorized by Transport Canada to manufacture a number of the kits in accordance with the approved design. However, new Canadian aviation regulations regarding manufacturing of aeronautical products came into effect in 2008. In an e-mail to the Tri-Cities NOW, Transport Canada officials note Emergco chose not to transition to these new regulations and surrendered their manufacturing certificate in early 2008. This meant

THE TRI-CITIES NOW

| WEDNESDAY, JULY 10, 2013

Tri-Cities NOW is a division of LMP Publication Limited Partnership. Our offices are located at 216-3190 St. Johns Street, Port Moody BC V3H 2C7 Phone: 604-444-3451

Byelections yes, but at a better price

L

et the people have their say. Coquitlam City Council voted 4-2 on Monday to hold a byelection to fill the seats vacated with the election of Linda Reimer and Selina Robinson as MLAs in the May provincial election. The cost of this exercise is, as Coun. Mae Reid and Mayor Richard Stewart duly noted, expensive and perhaps not the best use of taxpayers’ money. But having a strong, representative council is what democracy is all about. A council of just six, plus a mayor, may seem completely workable for a short period of time, but that does not take into account all the many meetings, events and duties required of Coquitlam’s elected officials. That people get sick or are unavailable at various times is another factor that could compromise council’s ability to make the best decisions on behalf of its stakeholders — we citizens. That we support the need for this byelection also comes with a caveat — that the province and Elections BC create a fiscally responsible means in which the democratic process can be more accessible and less punitive for taxpayers. In today’s electronic age, there are multiple means to make decisions — from paying parking meters via a cell phone to ordering a pizza with a favourite app. While it’s been discussed numerous times, voting needs to enter the 21st century. True, in this day and age of robo-calls, in-and-out and overspending scandals, the act of democracy must be secure and protected. But if there is no better vehicle to experiment on other options for casting your ballot, a byelection would seem a perfect fit. While democracy is precious at any cost, it doesn’t have to be costly.

CITY COULD MOW, TOO

Re: “Province lets the grass grow at Riverview,” Friday, July 5. It was not without irony that I read Mayor Stewart’s response in your paper about the unkempt Riverview lands. I know how he feels because my house (and a dozen others) overlook a vacant block of land on Roxton Street that despite multiple requests to have the property cleaned up, the only action we’ve seen in 15 months of asking is the installation of some completely ignored “no dumping” signs and one mow of the boulevard. “I think this is just a shame,” the mayor laments. Indeed it is, but what is also a shame is that while the city does indeed have specific bylaws around maintenance standards for residential properties, it seems that when unsightly property is city owned — as the block on Roxton is — those bylaws simply do not seem to apply. For 15 months I have been asking the city to tidy it up, including an unanswered e-mail to the mayor’s office itself, but still the Roxton lot in question remains overgrown with invasive species such as broome, and continues to be used as a dumping ground for construction material, garbage, old furniture and lawn debris. I am fine with the property sitting vacant, just as I am fine with the deer and bears who frolic among the alders and the weeds. What I’m not fine with, however, is the garbage and the rats who seem to have taken up residence in it. To be fair I completely agree with Mayor and Council about the Riverview lands; it does seem that through “fiscal discipline” or whatever other weasel words they choose to use, the province has abrogated its responsibility to be a good and tidy neighbour.

Age a factor in wonky polls

O

ne of the country’s top polling firms has investigated how it (and so many others) got the B.C. election forecast so wrong and has concluded one factor looms larger than any other: the low turnout of young people casting ballots. Angus Reid Public Opinion re-examined all its polling and its methodology and concluded that, more than anything else, the fact young people don’t vote nearly in as large numbers as older people skewed a series of polls (by Reid and other polling firms) that gave the false impression of what to expect on Election Day. Forget theories about last minute vote-switching or general low voter turnout, pollster Angus Reid says in a five-page summary of his firm’s internal investigation. Instead he found “that almost all of the discrepancy with our poll boiled down to one issue: low turnout among young voters.” Young voters are defined as being under the age of 35. They make up roughly 30 per cent of the population, but only make up about 15 per cent of those who actually come out and vote. Reid’s analysis concluded that, had he made an appropriate adjustment to better reflect the make up of those who actually vote, his last poll would have showed a three per cent lead for the NDP (in other words, a statistical dead heat given the margin of error). He rightly notes that publishing such a finding a week before voting day may well have changed the media reporting on the campaign narrative, and predictions of an NDP landslide would have been replaced with a too-close-to-call theme in news coverage. Ironically, the series of polls by Reid and others (notably Ipsos-Reid) that misleadingly showed the B.C. Liberals

VIEW FROM THE LEDGE Keith Baldrey

far, far behind the NDP for the entire campaign may have helped Christy Clark’s campaign “by energizing her base to get out and vote in order to beat back, as W.A.C. Bennett famously called them in 1972, the ‘socialist hordes,’” Reid writes in his analysis. I think there is considerable truth in that conclusion. Senior NDP officials and candidates have told me they ran into a significant “fear factor” on the doorstep among many voters as the campaign wound down. “They weren’t happy with the Liberals, but they were afraid of us,” one top party official told me. “We remain vulnerable on that point and probably always will be vulnerable.” The so-called fear factor didn’t seem to exist to the same degree among young people, who tend to support the NDP by greater numbers than older voters. But that fact became immaterial on Election Day, as those young voters simply stayed home rather than vote. Reid, who has a long track record of accurate election polling, says he will change his firm’s polling methodology in the wake of the problems exposed by the recent election. Young people will have to be “weighted” in the polling sample that is proportional to actual voters rather than the general population. Apparently, this is a problem that is unique to B.C. Other jurisdictions don’t

seem to have the same level of disinterest in young people when it comes to voting. As a political journalist, I’ve relied on Reid’s polls since the mid-80s for providing both an accurate snapshot of public opinion and a context on which to base political analysis. With the notable exception of the May 14 vote, he’s always been right. When he and others were proven to be so wrong on election night, the media also wore the fallout from the error. In his analysis, Reid says he considered pulling out of polling altogether, which would have significant implications for political journalism. However, Reid has concluded that since corporations, special interest groups and political parties are still very much involved in polling (in the last U.S. election more than $100 million was spent on private polling by the various parties) it is important that nonpartisan companies such as his continue their own polling. “A strong democracy needs accurate and independent public opinion research to help balance the discipline of power and add context to public debates,” Reid writes. People may not like public opinion polling (particularly when their findings clash with their own views) but it is an important part of our democratic process. It’s good to know that pollsters like Reid are going to make changes to ensure their findings are more accurate in the future. Now, if we can just get those young people to actually get out and vote.

LETTERS NIX THAT PAY PARKING IDEA

Re: “Plan for Rocky Point pay parking stalls,” Wednesday, July 3. Although I recognize that there needs to be a parking strategy at Rocky Point Park, I am staunchly opposed to any kind of pay parking. The city has many options to alleviate parking problems at the park without charging fees to driving visitors. Some examples could include: enforced timelimits, better utilization of nearby street parking, or collaboration with TransLink to provide more sustainable transit to the area — after all, a new SkyTrain station will be a few blocks away. It’s also worth mentioning that the City of Coquitlam has historically lost money on payparking, to the tune of thousands of dollars. Just about everyone is being squeezed financially, more and more every year. Fortunately, municipal parks are one of the few places where individuals and families can spend time together without spending money. Unless it’s absolutely necessary, we shouldn’t be charging more fees to visitors. Rocky Point is a

gem in the Lower Mainland, I would hate to see pay parking as a deterrent for visitors. Chris Carter Port Moody

KUDOS ALL AROUND ON CONTAINER STORY Re: “Couple fill container for African school,” Friday, July 5. Many thanks to Jeremy Deutsch for covering this story on short notice with such a well-written article. Huge thanks go out to the Coquitlam District teachers and administrators who took the time to find, collect and deliver materials to Porter Elementary. Further thanks go to Rotary Club World Help members George Sandwith and Dan Gallant who offered and delivered many boxes of library books from their club collection. Thanks also to those ladies who helped prepare the materials for shipping, slaving in a hot portable surrounded by resources. I can’t say enough about

Madeleine and Raymond who, though semi-retired, have found a powerful way to help others in the world. They truly are quiet local heroes and role models. I have only one small problem with the article — what am I supposed to make of the line “an old colleague”? Brent Pattison Principal, Porter Street Elementary School

A PORTRAIT OF COURAGE Re: “A story of compassion,” Wednesday, June 12. It was more than interesting to see the story of Mary Steinhauser revived after so many years. I did not know Ms. Steinhauser, although she was a friend of friends who still speak of her glowingly and who still remember her loss, not without bitterness at the lack of resolution in all the judicial proceedings that followed. I hope your story indicates that it is never too late to achieve justice. It may be tempting to paint Ms. Steinhauser as a martyr, which in some ways she may be, but these friends who knew her are quick to point to Ms. Steunhauser’s human-

ity, her salty sense of humour, her capacity for outrage at the overwhelming wrongs she perceived in the prison system. It is so much to her credit that she fought these wrongs not merely via protest but by entering into the lions’ den to touch lives positively. After her death I saw the play Walls, a thinly fictionalized account of her final days. The play made clear that the inmates Ms. Steinhauser counselled at B.C. Pen were no angels, yet she still held on to the belief that they could be rehabilitated if they could come to take real responsibility for their actions. In theory, that is what our justice system is for, although Ms. Steinhauser seemed to have spent as much time battling the system as counselling inmates. What a portrait of courage. From time to time Canadians are asked to identify their heroes and the answers are Terry Fox, Tommy Douglas, even Louis Riel and Pierre Trudeau. Thanks to your paper, perhaps next time more will know to add the name of Mary Steinhauser, the talented, compassionate young woman who lived and died for her belief in justice. Bob Mercer Vancouver

Kit delay tied to regulations, company issues CONT. FROM PAGE 7

Once this inspection is complete, those replacement parts will be added to Emergco’s manufacturing certificate and the company can begin making parts for customers. In the case of Coquitlam SAR’s kit, Transport Canada spokesperson Sarah Johnston said Emergco needs to provide accurate technical drawings and supporting data for the agency’s approval, adding Transport Canada is awaiting this data from the company. “Emergco is authorized to repair or produce products where data approved by Transport Canada exists and the company has demonstrated the ability to maintain it to that data,” she said. A representative for Emergco said the company understands the frustration for search and rescue teams, but noted the process can take a long time. “At the end of the day, it’s the regulatory requirements,” the spokesperson said. “Today’s requirements are far more detailed than they were 20 years ago, it’s unfortunate over time the data wasn’t updated.” The company explained part of the data required by Transport Canada includes things like label placements and recreating drawings so they could be put into a specification manual. Emergco also had to hire what’s called a delegate approval representative approved by Transport Canada to go through the process. Internal issues for the small company, including a power outage last week and summer holidays, have led to further delays. The Emergco spokesperson said the company is hopeful the first data package will be approved in the next couple weeks. But neither the company nor the search teams are blaming Transport Canada for being unreasonable. In fact, all the parties involved suggest the government agency has bent over backwards to try and get the situation resolved. As a member of North Shore Rescue, Tim Jones has been a part of some 1,600 rescues with the team. He said the one tool that changed the rescue landscape was HETS. “It’s such a life saving tool, it’s changed the scope of how we operate in mountain search and rescue,” Jones told the TriCities NOW. Jones added it takes four hours of paperwork just to document a task. He also noted there is only one point of attachment for the person being rescued and if it fails the results are catastrophic. The issue around the kits came to light last fall, after the North Shore Rescue team went public when their HETS program was shut down. But the North Shore team was in a different situation than

PoCo plane crash survivor shares his story TRAGEDY HAS NOT TAKEN HIS JOY FOR LIFE AWAY

Sam Smith

S

editorial@thenownews.com ix years ago Port Coquitlam resident Dave Jonsson was just another young guy who liked to hang out with his friends and absolutely loved to skateboard. He worked a dead-end job and, as he says, pretty well had no direction or motivation to do anything more. Then without any warning, life changed. “Before the plane crash I wasn’t doing very much with my life at all,” he said. “I was simply working a deadbeat job, living paycheque to paycheque… then the plane crash happened. It was such a wake up call. Life… you have one shot at it.” Six years ago Jonsson’s best friend from Iceland, Gudni Kristinsson, had just earned a pilot’s license and wanted to spend the summer with Jonsson flying around B.C. Who could say no? “He came here in 2007 and we spent the whole summer just together as friends,” Jonsson said. They took a ton of trips, with Kristinsson flying them all around the province. It was one of the best summers of his life, Jonsson ... The best thing recalls. Then, on the final day I ever did was Kristinsson was supposed to be take a survivor’s here, they went out one last time attitude. I’ve got to visit Squamish. Jonsson invited along his a second chance friends Elliott and Leah. They at life. packed up and headed out into what was looking like a beautiful –Dave Jonsson sunny day. But when they reached the area near Squamish, something was wrong. “The moment we turned the corner into the valley the atmosphere of the plane suddenly shifted,” Jonsson recalls. “(Kristinsson) realized he had flown into a dangerous zone.” He remembers they were in a tight valley with clouds overhead. At the end of the valley, the mountains rose quickly, leaving Kristinsson to try and turn around or lift the plane. He tried to lift, but the plane was too heavy. Before he could change direction, the worst thing imaginable happened. The plane stalled. “Very typically, like a rollercoaster, your stomach goes up into your chest,” Jonsson said of the experience. “I remember (Kristinsson) said, ‘Shit, we’re going down.’ Everyone starts screaming on the plane. All I remember is closing my eyes. Then I remember thinking the thought of ‘OK, this is it.’

Taking his story to schools in hopes that it inspires others, Port Coquitlam’s Dave Jonsson survived a horrible plane crash and the death of his best friend and uncovered something important about life. “Having said that I felt like I wasn’t sad, wasn’t happy, wasn’t worried. It was just like an emotionless-ness, approaching the ground at 130 kilometres per hour they estimate. Closing my eyes, I remember hearing the tips of the trees hitting the wings.” Then the plane smashed into the trees, and that was it. “I was unconscious for about 15 minutes,” Jonsson said. “My friends Elliott and Leah were able to get out of the plane.” They were able to help Jonsson out, who was stuck under 300 pounds of supplies and had his leg hooked under the seat, his femur snapped in half. “I was bleeding internally to death,” he said. Once he got his seatbelt and supplies off, he looked to his left back into the plane and what he saw made his heart drop. “I had that agonizing moment when I looked to my left and

witnessed Gudni die,” he said. His leg snapped in half and his best friend dying left two huge holes in Jonsson’s life. He lost his closest friend, and he lost the ability to do what he loved to do: skateboard. But he refused to play the victim. “My recovery is awesome,” he says. “My attitude right from the get-go was either take a victim’s attitude and be very sorrowful in this whole thing. But the best thing I ever did was take a survivor’s attitude. I’ve got a second chance at life, so I’m going to train as hard as I can and be a better person.” Since his original prognosis of “never being able to run again” let alone skateboard, Jonsson is now back on the board with little to no leftover physical pain from the incident.

PoCo cyclists wanted to help set wheels in motion Love to ride? The City of Port Coquitlam is looking for people who like to get around on two wheels for its new Cycling Advisory Group (CAG), which will help set the direction for future cycling-related projects in the city. The application deadline is July 14. The group, whose mandate is to promote a safe and convenient cyc-

ling environment for commuter and recreational cyclists, will advise the engineering and operation department’s transportation division. Its duties will include: • Reviewing and advising on bicycle transportation matters, • Providing input on capital improvement projects that involve bicycle facilities,

Big Bayou Burger

• Promoting bicycling as a viable form of urban transportation and recreation, and • Promoting motorist and cyclist awareness, competence and safety. Projects that will be brought to the CAG for input include the planning of a new cyclist and pedestrian underpass of the CP rail tracks at Shaughnessy Street.

In addition to city staff, CAG members will include up to three residents, up to three business owners, and representatives from HUB (formerly the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition), and potentially ICBC, the RCMP and School District 43. The informal group, which will work toward the goal of consensus,

will typically meet four times a year, except when specific issues arise.

Skater shares story of recovery CONT. FROM PAGE 13 He still has a metal rod in his femur and feels occasional pain in his right knee, but what matters to him is he can skate. He even has companies sponsoring him as a skater now. But he’s not stopping there. Jonsson’s story is not one of simply taking lemons and making lemonade. It was living in a slop of mud and refusing to be a pig. He built himself up from nothing, determined to make a full recovery. He has. And now he’s passing along his story in the hopes of inspiring others. Now 25-years-old, Jonsson is happily married and a foster dad to a young boy named Brandon, who also likes to skate. He works as a young adult pastor for the NorthRidge Foursquare Church. He also runs a young adult coffee shop discussion group

called Café Damascus, volunteers at a skate group to inspire young skaters called SkateLife, and does motivational speeches around schools in the Lower Mainland and the Tri-Cities. Earlier this year, Jonsson spoke before a large crowd at Coquitlam’s Gleneagle Secondary. He will also be speaking at Riverside Secondary in PoCo for their opening assembly in September. He hopes to take his speeches internationally, to inspire and motivate others and let them witness first-hand that no matter how bad it seems, life is worth living. “All of us have something in our lives we wish would be different,” he said. “The beauty of my happiness is it’s not based on anything else but my own attitude. “Even in the moment when I couldn’t walk, I could at least find little things during the day that brought me joy.”

RENOVATION

I am scared to see a dentist. What can I do?

Q: Why is a renovation the right choice for me? A: It’s a good idea to establish your primary reasons for choosing a renovation over new construction. Perhaps you like some of the features of your current Erynn Johnson home or you love your location. Whatever the reason, make sure your goals can be accomplished with a remodel of your current home. Does your budget align with your expectations for the level of quality of your dream renovation? Will the site accommodate the home size and amenities that you require? With your budget and goals clearly defined, we can evaluate the assets and liabilities of your current home and help you either confirm or deny that a renovation is the right choice for you.

Almost everyone experiences some form of anxiety around having treatment at the dental office. For some people this anxiety can be debilitating; for some people, it just makes them uncomfortable and they tend to avoid treatment even Dr. Myrna Pearce though they understand that it is needed. The most important thing to understand is that you are not alone and dental professionals understand and are here to help. Oral Conscious Sedation is available to many patients as a way to reduce anxiety and make it possible for even highly phobic patients to successfully obtain the dental treatment they want in a relaxed, comfortable, safe environment.

Heat stroke occurs in dogs who are left in a small confined space with poor air circulation (notably cars) or when playing or exercising outside on warm sunny humid days. Cars turn into ovens within 10 minutes, even in the shade with the windows open. If it is only 26°C outside, the temperature inside a car can reach 37°C in 10 minutes D r. N e n a d K a r l i , and a lethal 43°C in 20 minutes. Dogs cool themselves DVM & Assoc. by panting and by releasing heat through their paws. The hot upholstery and air in vehicles prevents dogs from cooling themselves. If you witness any dog in a car on a warm or humid day who you believe may be in distress, please ask stores to page their customers and call the local SPCA or Police immediately. How to recognize the signs of overheating? First signs are restlessness and excessive panting, sometimes excessive drooling followed by very difficult (and loud) breathing, dry tacky gums and agitation. Further elevation of body temperature leads to ataxia, very red gums, and tremors. In the end stages dogs are very weak, have laboured breathing, are unable to stand up or move and sometimes have seizures or collapse. These symptoms without care are often followed by coma and death. Don’t waste time!!! Immediately call your Veterinarian! And in the meantime try to cool your dog down by immersing in cool water or spraying with water. NEVER USE ICE WATER! This constricts the blood flow which inhibits cooling. Make sure that their head and neck are also wet. Give the dog some cool water to drink. Please go to your Veterinarian or emergency hospital ASAP.

A: Ship size determines not only the number of fellow passengers, but the amount and style of dining spots, entertainment choices, and even the cost of your vacation. Cruise ships of all sizes offer the same wonderful ease of planning, budgeting and sailing between ports: but, small ships deliver a unique kind of cruise experience. While big ships provide an amazing, resort-style vacation that’s memorable even if you never step off the ship, small ships tend to focus on the destination as the main vacation experience. The per-passenger cost for a small ship cruise is usually higher than on a big ship: however, extras such as alcoholic beverages, gratuities, shore excursions and even airfare may be included.

LAWYER S M Y T H & C O M PA N Y BARRISTERS & SOLICITORS Q: I have been living common law with my girlfriend for six months. Are we now entitled to half of each other’s assets? A: In BC, you are only “common law spouses” for property division purposes if you live together for twocontinuousyearsinamarriage-likerelationship. If you are common law spouses property division TARYNNE HOOVER is the same as it is for married spouses. Upon separation spouses are entitled to share in the increase in value of assets and will also be responsible for sharing the debts. If you don’t qualify as a commonlaw spouse you may still be entitled to a share of assets in your girlfriend’s name if you have made a contribution of some sort to her assets. If you have made a direct or indirect contribution, you may be entitled to reimbursement or to a share of her property. The amount you would be entitled to depends upon the specific facts relating to the “contribution”, how your girlfriend benefited, and whether you also benefited financially from the relationship. An experienced family law lawyer can advise you with respect to asset division. For a free consultation, call Smyth & Company at 604-942 6560. CALL FOR A FREE CONSULTATION

Recycle that old oil, tires With environmental conversation now at the forefront, the British Columbia Used Oil Management Association (BCUOMA), in partnership with Tire Stewardship BC (TSBC), is launching its eighth annual Summer Ambassador tour. This week it’s Coquitlam’s turn. The project began in May, when two ambassador teams set out to canvas the province, travelling through 130 municipalities and visiting 700 respective return collection facilities, promoting the responsible recycling of used oil, used antifreeze and their respective materials. This year, in addition to a second Ambassador team and an expanded route, the teams will be communicating the importance of recycling not only used oil and antifreeze, but also scrap tires. WHEN — Tuesday, July 9 to Friday, July 12.

WHERE — Return collection facilities and tire retailers across Coquitlam WHY — Increase collection rates for used oil, used antifreeze and scrap tires in order to minimize contamination of the environment through education and communication outreach at B.C.’s return collection facilities and tire retailer locations. BCUOMA is a not-for-profit organization responsible for the implementation of a province-wide recovery and recycling system for used oil, antifreeze, and their respective filters and containers. The organization is dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of recycling these waste materials. For more information about BCUOMA and a listing of collection facilities across the province, visit www.usedoilrecycling.com.

Tee it Up for Literacy Save the date... the “Links to Literacy” Golf Tournament presented by Onni Group will take place on Tuesday, August 27th at Meadow Gardens Golf Club, 19675 Meadow Gardens Way, Pitt Meadows. Join Port Moody Public Library, Onni Group and our other sponsors for a day of golf in support of special literacy projects in the community or just come by for the banquet. The banquet will be emceed by Maureen Dockendorf, Superintendent of Reading for the BC Ministry of Education. Chris Evans, Executive Vice President of Onni, says “Our continued sponsorship of the ‘Links to Literacy’ Tournament not only supports our corporate goal of building sustainable, strong communities, it is a fun event to take part in.” Literacy builds communities because it is the Velcro that makes learning stick, but many adults and children lack the skills to fully participate in our information-rich and knowledge intensive society. Parents who lack adequate literacy skills are not well able to provide the support for their child’s reading and learning that we know is key in preparing young children for school. More than one third of adults in BC struggle with the skills necessary to read a newspaper, fill out a work application form, read a map, or understand a lease. Research shows children who are read to before they start school have better developed language skills and greater interest in reading and learning, but one child in four in BC is “developmentally vulnerable” when beginning kindergarten and one student in five is not completing high school in the expected time. Through “Links to Literacy”, the Library has received funding for a variety of special literacy projects such as laptops for literacy training, work stations and materials for the learning and print disabled, the Read Today, Lead Tomorrow speakers series, Links to Language kits, and a Reading Link partnership with local schools. Contact the library at 604-469-4477 or check our website www.library.portmoody.ca/links for more information.

Saints prep for second season POCO IN TOUGH AGAINST WELL BALANCED THUNDER

JOHN KURUCZ

N

sports@thenownews.com o matter how you look at it, the numbers are overwhelmingly daunting for the PoCo Saints. The B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League club kicked off its best-of-three playoff series with Langley Tuesday — after NOW deadlines — against a backdrop of some pretty unforgiving stats, not to mention a roster depleted by injury and recent trades. The Saints dropped all four games against the Thunder this year, although the largest margin of victory was five goals. Those losses, however, all came before last week’s blockbuster trades that saw the club’s two leading scorers — Matt Delmonico and Tyler Pace — shipped off to Coquitlam. Making matters worse is that the club’s de facto go-to sniper, Nash Harrison, is out with an injury that could prevent him from seeing any action in the first-round series. “We’re a little banged up right now unfortunately, so the timing isn’t really that great for us. But that’s the way things have worked out for us,” said Saints head coach Danny Harada. “We are missing a lot up front. Goals will be pretty scarce for us, so we have to keep it as a low scoring series. We have to play a grinder game and tighten our belts at the back and try to keep that score down.” Keeping that score down was certainly not the order of the day last weekend, as the Saints were pelted by a combined score of 44-8 in a home-and-home set with Victoria. On Saturday, the Saints lost 23-5 in Victoria. A day later, they returned home and suffered a resounding 21-3 defeat. The club had already locked up its playoff spot prior to last weekend, and the two games were “mean nothing” contests in Harada’s eyes. Injuries also played a part, as the Saints played Sunday’s game with just 14 runners. But now it’s imperative that the club operates off of a blank slate. “For us, they’re mean-nothing games, but we still would have liked to have performed a little better than that — it’s a good spanking for sure,” Harada said. “We’re really going to stress that it’s the postseason now, and that it is a new season.” The Saints were down 9-2 after the first, and 17-4 after two frames on Saturday. They were outshot 58-38. Cory Cop and Tanner Fisher each potted a pair, while Colby Beveridge netted the other single.

SPORTS SHORTS CLERC CLIPS PERU

Coquitlam’s Paul Clerc helped lead Canada’s soccer entry at the Summer Universiade to a 2-0 win over Peru Monday. The UBC Thunderbirds product scored the game winner in the 31st minute, after heading home a free kick attempt from fellow UBC teammate Marco Visentin. Ontario native Mario Kovacevic scored the 2-0 tally in the 64th minute to seal the win. Canada, 1-0-1, plays host to Brazil today (Wednesday).

NOW FILE

The Port Coquitlam Saints will be in tough during the postseason without the likes of Tyler Pace, shown here in a game earlier this year against Coquitlam. The Saints opened up their playoff push Tuesday after NOW deadlines. It didn’t get much better on Sunday, as the Saints found themselves down 12-1 after two frames. The third saw Victoria add another nine goals and ultimately outshoot PoCo 64-27. Corey Wong scored twice, with Connor Goodwin collecting the other PoCo tally. “You’ve got to forget, have a short memory and forget about the things that just happened even over the last five or six games,” Harada said. “You just have to put it all behind you.” As for their current opponent, Harada characterized the Thunder as a team with next to no holes — a balanced attack combined with a defensive-oriented system that features strong goaltending. The Thunder’s goals against average was the third best in the league, after Coquitlam and New West respectively.

PoCo, meanwhile scored the fewest goals of the six playoffbound teams, while at the same time conceding the most. “They’re a strong defensive team and they have a pretty explosive offence. They’re right side is pretty strong and they’ve got a lot of scoring power on that side,” Harada said. “It’s going to be a tough opponent. It’s going to be a tall order for us.” Game 2 is set for Friday night, 8 p.m. at the PoCo Rec Centre. Game 3, if needed, will be played on Sunday, July 14 in Langley. Across the other side of Westwood Street, the Coquitlam Adanacs recently wrapped up their sixth straight league title. The A’s now have a first-round bye alongside New West and won’t resume play until at least July 20.

U-13S PICK UP BRONZE SR ADANACS DOUSED The Coquitlam Metro-Ford under-13 boys Revolution side rallied from a late-game scare to secure a B.C. bronze. Competing in Provincial Cup play last weekend, the Revolution needed penalty kicks to take the third-place mantle after Kamloops scored in second half injury time to make it 2-2. After two scoreless overtime periods, the Revolution won the bronze in penalty kicks. Scoring for Metro-Ford in penalty kicks were Jaxon Bain, Daniel Kim and Jack Griffin, while netminder Daniel Chernetski was clutch in net. Nick Shewchuk, Brolin Masuhara and Griffin tallied in the club’s other contests.

It’s tough to win in any sport when you’re constantly playing from behind. The Coquitlam Sr. Adanacs trailed to start off each period in Saturday’s 13-9 loss to Victoria, a defeat that drops them to 4-7-1 in the Western Lacrosse Association standings. Adding to the slow start each period was the fact that Victoria cashed in on five of 10 powerplay opportunities. Coquitlam got a hat trick from Daryl Veltman and a pair from Ryan Keith. Jeff Sproule, Matthew Dinsdale, Mark Negrin and Jesse Guerin notched singles. Netminders Adam Shute and Nathan Wilson both saw action in the loss.

VIGNA LOSES, WINS

Call it a mixed bag for Coquitlam’s Kevin Vigna over the weekend. The 17-year-old golfer lost a three-way playoff to Jared Dutoit at last weekend’s 2013 British Columbia Junior Boys’ Championship in Revelstoke The silver lining, however, is that despite the loss, Vigna will join Dutoit and the other contender, Jordan Lu, on Team B.C. at the upcoming Canadian Junior Boys tournament in Garson, Ontario. Vigna shot an 11-under par, 277 over the tourney (71-72-68-66). PoCo’s Gunntas Sidhu also cracked the top 10 with a total of 76-7465-72 (287).

RELEASE FORM: In consideration of the acceptance of this application for registration, I, intending to be legally bound, herby for myself, my heirs, executors and administrators waive and release any and all rights and claims for damages I may have against the NOW NEWSPAPER VOLLEYBALL CAMP or its representatives and/or assignees, for any and all damages which may be sustained and suffered by me in connection with my association with or entry in this Camp, and which may arise out of my traveling to, participating in, or returning to the Camp.

Applicants Signature: Date:

p.m. On Saturday, July 13, singles competition will play out from 9:15 a.m. to noon. Award presentations will round out Saturday’s action between 12:30 and 2 p.m. All of the action will take place at the Zone Bowling Centre, located at 228 Schoolhouse St. in Coquitlam.

Coquitlam won its first Tier 1 championship title in seven years at the 28th Jack Crosby Memorial novice allstar lacrosse tournament in Burnaby. The novice Adanacs avenged last year’s championship final loss and their only defeat in preliminary round play, doubling the two-time defending champion Oakville, Ont., Hawks 10-5 in the title game at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre on Sunday. Coquitlam MVP Dawson Brown scored six times, including his final tally scored while face-first on the floor in the third period, to lead the novice A’s. “It really (feels like a provincial championship),” said Brown after the game. “We just won this big, huge cup in front of a large crowd. It’s a job well done.” But Brown deflected most of the credit to a tenacious Coquitlam defence that hurried the Hawks throughout the 60 minutes of running time. The A’s big defence was

particularly active in the final frame, backing up the Oakville runners for much of the period, and when the Hawks did break on goal, Tristan Lomas was there to stop most of them. Lomas gave way to the backup with eight minutes left in the third period, allowing just four goals on 27 shots. “It was a good recipe,” said Coquitlam head coach Mike Kemp. “I’m proud of these kids. They’ll be buddies forever.” David Charney opened the scoring on a long screened shot from the right side for the A’s in the second minute of the first period. Drake Domme had the visitors up 7-3 with a goal at the second-period buzzer. Oakville’s Brian Jackman had two goals and a single assist to lead the Ontario representative. In the Tier 1 bronze medal match, Vancouver Island’s Westshore Whalers defeated Delta 5-2. Nanaimo sailed unbeaten through the Tier 2 division, winning its second straight final over Kamloops by a score of 9-4.

A self employment opportunity

jdeutsch@thenownews.com School District 43 officials knew they would have to make cuts to deal with a ballooning deficit, and on Tuesday employees and the public learned just how deep the reductions will be once the budget is done. To make up for a $12.1-million projected operating deficit for the 2013/2014 school year, the district is looking at cutting six per cent of its staff across the board. More specifically, it’s proposing to cut 142 pos-

itions within the district. A further breakdown of the numbers has the district cutting 81 teachers, 19 teacher assistants/special education assistants/youth workers along with 32 clerical/custodial/IT and facilities positions and 10 from administration. The staffing cuts add up to $11.5 million in savings. Some of the positions being cut will be offset by attrition, with as many as 30 staff in various positions already putting in their retirement papers for the end of the year. CONTINUED ON PAGE 5

FOUND FOREMAN, Bruce Jun 11, 1954 - Jun 22, 2013 Long time City of Port Coquitlam resident and committed volunteer, Bruce passed away in his sleep. He will be fondly remembered for his many years of volunteer work with Crossroads Hospice Society and the City of Port Coquitlam. Bruce was considered, by many, to be the thread to all the city events that involved music. Bruce is survived by his brother Barry, brother Ben and his sister Kathie/Brian, and his niece Kassidie. He was predeceased by his mother Barbara in 1997 and his father Fred in 2005. A celebration of life has been planned for Friday, July 12, 2013 at the Gathering Place in Port Coquitlam at 6:45pm followed by sharing of stories and refresh ments, hosted by volunteers from the Crossroads Hospice Coffeehouse. The City of Port Coquitlam will be paying tribute to Bruce at the Sunday concert in Lions Park on Sunday, July 14th at 2:00 pm. This is a free concert and everyone is invited to attend. Bruce will be sadly missed by his family, Marcel, and his friends at the PoCo Farmer’s Market, Sunday music concerts at Lions Park, and the Crossroads Hospice Coffeehouse.
