RCMP, PORT MOODY POLICE COLLECT 107 FIREARMS Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com For years, Phil Brooks had an old 20-gauge shotgun buried in his garage. It was a gift from his dad when the PoCo resident turned 20. Brooks used the gun a few times in his younger years, but as he became a family man, the gun was put aside to collect dust. So when the provincial government announced a gun amnesty for the month of June, he eagerly marked the event on his calendar. “It’s just one more thing down in the basement

— when the amnesty came up, I thought they [police] could come and get it,” he told the TriCities NOW. “I thought it was time to give it up.” It turned out Brooks’ shotgun was one of more than 100 firearms of various makes and models turned in across the Tri-Cities as part of the amnesty, including 91 to the Coquitlam RCMP. Another 16 firearms were turned in to the Port Moody Police, bringing the total number of guns in the Tri-Cities to 107. The amnesty also brought in another couple CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

A bench to remember Amanda

TWO POCO SCHOOLS RAISED FUNDS TO PUT UP A BENCH IN HONOUR OF AMANDA TODD

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com Nestled across a quiet row of houses in the Citadel Heights neighbourhood is the green oasis Settlers Park. The well-manicured space has been home to countless family picnics, walks, and community events. At the centre of the park is a pond, covered in lilies. The belch of a bullfrog can be heard echoing off the tall grass and rocks that dot the edge of the water. In the background, a faint hum from cars, as mothers and children leisurely stroll along the winding path that follows the pond. It’s also the spot where you can find Carol Todd, sitting on a new bench dedicated to her daughter Amanda. “It’s a calm place,” Carol told The Tri-Cities NOW, on Sunday, just a few days after the bench was installed. It’s also a place for the grieving mother to contemplate and reminisce. Like the time Amanda, still just a child, rode her bike right past the rocks and into the murky pond during a picnic. “In slow motion we just watched Amanda ride into the pond, we couldn’t do anything,” Carol recalled with a chuckle. Fortunately, some older kids were around and able to fish her out of the pond. In the wintertime, when it was cold enough, the pond would freeze and the kids would go ice-skating. Last summer, while Amanda was in the depths of her depression and could barely get out of bed, she would sit on the hill near the pond and just watch. Settlers Park is just a stones throw from the home in which she grew up. It was a park Carol’s daughter and her neighbourhood friends roamed when they were younger. “I never thought I’d be sitting on my own daughter’s bench,” Carol said. Amanda’s story is no secret now. The PoCo teen, who was a Grade 10 stu-

The idea to put a bench in the PoCo park came very shortly after her death. It was something Carol thought of immediately, but it was the parents, teachers and students from both Citadel Middle and Kilmer Elementary that made it happen.

Amanda attended both schools, while Carol taught at Kilmer. The schools raised the roughly $1,200 needed to make the bench a reality. In just a short time, a number of Amanda’s friends and even strangers have visited the bench — some tying balloons, others tacking on snowflakes. “It’s a great place for other people,” Carol said. “This is the place for friends to go because this is the place she grew up.”

Since Amanda’s, death, her mom has worked tirelessly to bring attention to the issues of bullying and youth mental health, attending countless events and opening her self up to the media at a moment’s notice. But the bench is something more personal. It took Carol two days just to work up the strength to visit the bench for the first time. She admitted the first days were hard. But since then, she’s visited the bench a few CONTINUED ON PAGE 10

Moore bumped up to Minister of Industry TRI-CITIES MP MOVES FROM HERITAGE AND OFFICIAL LANGUAGES TO INDUSTRY

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com Local MP James Moore has gone from supporting Canadian artists and musicians to overseeing the industry that profits off of them. On Monday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper shuffled his cabinet, which included moving the long-time Port MoodyWestwood-Port Coquitlam MP from his Heritage Ministry post to Industry Canada. As the Minister of Industry, Moore will oversee a broad range of the Canadian economy, including managing telecommunications, exports and imports, bankruptcy, industry research to help business and protecting the interests of Canadian consumers. The agency also looks after intellectual property and copyright laws. Moore said he was honoured to have the confidence of the prime minister to take on such a key portfolio, adding he intends to focus on creating jobs and supporting economic growth. “We want to make sure that British Columbians and all

Canadians have a strong and healthy economy going forward,” will only strengthen B.C.’s voice in all of government policy, not just the portfolios,” Moore said. he told The Tri-Cities NOW. But not everyone is singing the praises of the prime minister’s There has been a suggestion that Moore’s promotion is a way for the Conservative government to push a pair of controversial cabinet shuffle. NDP MP Fin Donnelly argued the shuffle doesn’t change the situation for the Tories with regards to oil pipeline projects in B.C. in the Enbridge and the expense scandal in the senate. Kinder Morgan proposals. But the Tory MP scoffed “They need to address that no matter who’s in at the suggestion, adding it’s not the government’s cabinet and who’s out,” said Donnelly. “I think it’s role to push any specific project. a bit of a sign of desperation, trying to change the “It’s not the job of the government to advocate for channel and trying to divert focus away from the or against Kinder Morgan, to advocate for or against attention paid at the senate level.” Enbridge,” he said.

Coquitlam sidewalks, like this one near Chilko and Lougheed, will now be prioritized through a new scoring system regarding construction and improvements.

Council supports concrete action Sam SMITH

editorial@thenownews.com Watch your step — Coquitlam council unanimously voted on changing the way it prioritizes sidewalk construction and improvements around the city with a new scoring system presented by city staff Monday night. The new system recognizes new key items that were not a part of the previous plan and would align it to fit with the new Strategic Transportation Plan, according to senior transportation planning engineer Carlos Perez. Key areas to consider would include prioritizing portions which effect people with disabilities, place higher priority on sites with higher vehicle and foot traffic and connecting worn and missing links. “How we analyze the importance and difference of sidewalk requests from the community and all the missing links in the network is by looking at the pedestrian potential to use that sidewalk segment, and also by looking at the safety and efficiency of the network of side-

walks in the city,” Perez told council. The new sidewalk system prioritizes projects through a point system of up to 100 points and 10 bonus points. Twenty points are based on combined populations and job density, 15 points for accessibility to public transit, 15 points for a pedestrian areas such as near a school or park, and five bonus points if its near city-wide greenways. Thirty points are pulled from traffic volume and street class, 10 points from vulnerable road users, such as segments of road near elementary schools or senior housing, 10 points for network deficiency, such as missing links or worn footpaths, and five bonus points for requests from vulnerable users. As an example of how the new ranking system would work, Perez showed council a shift in priority from work on Lougheed Highway at Dewdney Trunk Road and Chilko Drive to the pipeline at Glen Drive. Council unanimously approved the new ranking system.

Cops step up road checks

Jeremy DEUTSCH

jdeutsch@thenownews.com It’s always a sure sign of summer, besides the searing sun. Coquitlam Mounties have once again kicked off the summer season with their counterattack road checks and safety patrols at Buntzen Lake. In the first weekend of stepped up enforcement, police managed to bust several drivers for impaired driving and impound their cars. “At a check stop, one driver told me that he wasn’t hurting anyone after he failed to pass the breath test,” said RCMP Sgt. Dave Fee in a statement. “It’s hard to believe some people still think drunk driving is OK, it’s not. My message to those drivers who still don’t

get it is that impaired driving is a criminal offence.” Coquitlam RCMP will be adding extra counterattack road checks throughout the summer. And at the beach, cops were out on a recent weekend handing out tickets to people drinking alcohol and pouring out booze at Buntzen Lake. In all, police at the popular park checked 200 people, while one person was arrested for an outstanding warrant. Three people were ejected from the park for not following the park rules. “With the hot weather here to stay, we will increase our patrols at the lake and park areas,” said RCMP Cpl Jamie Chung. “The message for park

goers is that we take the zero tolerance approach for people who drink alcohol in the park.”

MISSING PATIENT FOUND Police have found a missing outpatient from the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital. Coquitlam Mounties confirmed Monday Christopher Todd Taylor, 43, was found safe and sound. It wasn’t made clear by police exactly where the patient had gone and how he was eventually found. Taylor was reported missing on July 5. He was supposed to see hospital staff July 2, but did not attend his appointment. He last contacted staff on June 25.

jdeutsch@thenownews.com A second rescue from a remote area of the Tri-Cities has Coquitlam RCMP warning residents to be prepared when enjoying the outdoors. Search crews, including Coquitlam Search and Rescue, North Shore Rescue and the Canadian Coast Guard, were called out late Sunday afternoon to help rescue a 29-year-old man at Granite Falls in the Indian Arm Provincial Park. The man had reportedly fallen several metres and was injured in the incident. Coquitlam SAR was originally called out, which then called on North Shore

Rescue for help with a long line rescue. The man was eventually lifted to safety and transported to hospital. In all, six agencies were involved in the rescue. Just two weeks ago, a Mexican exchange student, Marcos Borboa Lara, was killed in the same area following an accident. The 16-year-old was swimming with friends at the top of the falls on June 30 when he was suddenly swept over, falling approximately 50 feet. Adjacent to Mount Seymour Provincial Park in North Vancouver, the park, which includes Granite Falls, is situated on the eastern and western shorelines of the upper portion of Indian Arm. The park is primarily accessed by water.

RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said the area is generally safe, but suggested people need to do their research before venturing out. “It’s not a stroll at the seawall, it really is rough terrain hiking,” he told The TriCities NOW, adding people also need to dress appropriately when out on a hike. Chung said RCMP patrol the section of Indian Arm occasionally, but added they don’t receive many calls to the Granite Falls area. The most recent incident was also the third call in three weekends that ended with a long line rescue. Coquitlam SAR said on its website the rescue is another example for why the team needs long-line rescue capabilities.

Home makeover in Port Moody VOLUNTEERS STILL NEEDED FOR POMO RENOVATION

Sam SMITH editorial@thenownews.com Who needs a camera crew to help their neighbour? This is the approach the Home Team has taken ala TV’s Extreme Home Makeover, a volunteer group based out of Coquitlam’s Cornerstone SeventhDayAdventistChurch, dedicated to providing home renovations to those in need in the Tri-Cities. Kathleen Black of Port Moody was chosen from dozens of applicants for a re-working of her townhouse, a home that saw past renovations abruptly put on hold six years ago when Black was diagnosed with a severe inflammatory autoimmune skeletal disease. She now also suffers from a lack of mobility and is legally blind. “When we heard of her plight there and what she was going through physically we felt it was a really good choice to try and help her finish what had been left undone,” said Russ McCann, creator and organizer of the Home Team projects. “She was pretty resourceful

in starting a lot of things herself, learning how to do things as she went,” McCann said. “I thought it was kind of cool she took it on herself, but then she got diagnosed with a mean autoimmune disease.” In those six years, Black has been dealing with her illness and even hired contractors to finish her renovations, but it didn’t end as she had hoped. “I guess she tried to hire some people to do stuff,” McCann said. “But before you know it you’re out of money and everything’s not finished. It’s pretty hard to deal with a renovation, so we just thought it would be a good fit.” The Home Team works entirely through volunteers and admittedly they’re off to a bit of a slow start, according to McCann. “We’re always looking for people to help one way or another,” he said. “In this case, I think it’s a bit more of a finesse project and we need decorating ideas and maybe some mobility ideas.” This will be the 12th project since McCann came up with the idea seven years ago during a lower point in his life.

You & The Law

ACCIDENTS AND REDUCED EARNING CAPACITY

What if you can’t earn as much now because you were hurt in a car crash? You may be forced to find an easier but lower-paying job and be unable to earn as much income as before the accident. Lawyers call this loss “diminished earning capacity.” This work-related loss is just one of many losses you could be compensated for if the crash was caused by another’s fault. It’s often part of a compensation claim by personal injury plaintiffs. But what if your earnings don’t go down after the accident? Can you still get compensation for “diminished earning capacity”? After all, you might think that because your income didn’t decrease, your ability to earn hasn’t been reduced. Not true. A recent BC case illustrates that this approach is too simple and can be unfair to the injured person. Colleen, 46, was injured in two car accidents, one right after the other. She hurt her neck, shoulder and upper back, resulting in chronic widespread pain (later diagnosed as fibromyalgia). Before the accidents, she was a highly energetic and motivated individual. She had a fast-paced job as an executive secretary to the president of a large organization, which she loved and was ideally suited for. All that changed. Because of her chronic pain – which she only endure with large amounts of pain killers and anti-inflammatory medications – she could no longer handle the demands of her job, nor the three-hour (both ways) commute it involved. Colleen sold her house to move to a smaller home with fewer stairs. Because of her injuries, she also found a new easier job where the commute was only 20 minutes. Having to switch jobs “was a huge blow” and it “was far less rewarding in terms of job satisfaction,” said the trial judge who initially decided her case. Yet, by happenstance, her new job paid her a better salary, and so she didn’t suffer an immediate loss of earnings.

Still, her lawyers were able to prove that she suffered a reduction in her capacity to earn (which the appeal court agreed with). The circle of secretarial or administrative positions that she could compete for in future had narrowed because of the limitations imposed by her injuries. In short, she became less marketable as an employee and less capable overall of taking advantage of all employment opportunities that might come her way. As well, the trial judge concluded that there was a real and substantial possibility that Colleen would have moved up in her organization’s hierarchy to a director position had she been able to stay there – at a higher salary and with improved health and pension benefits. (This particular finding was overturned on appeal as speculative only, reducing her compensation award somewhat.) And there was a real possibility that because of her injuries (which had plateaued or possibly could even worsen), her working career would likely end earlier than it would have if the accident hadn’t occurred. Overall, she proved that she had suffered a loss in her capacity to earn future income, as confirmed by the appeal court. The BC Court of Appeal ultimately awarded Colleen $275,000 for diminished earning capacity. If you’re injured in an accident, consult your lawyer. She can help you receive the fair compensation that you may be entitled to receive. This column has been written with the assistance of KERRY DEANE-CLOUTIER.

Move puts Moore in big oil spotlight

P

ort Moody’s own James Moore received a deserved boost in portfolio Monday when Prime Minister Harper delivered his cabinet shuffle. The Conservative MP for Port MoodyWestwood-Port Coquitlam, Moore moves from overseeing Canadian Heritage and Official Languages — where he helped pump up the War of 1812 and made cuts to the CBC’s budget, among other things — to become the Minister of Industry. The fiscal depth of his new position appears to be a telling sign that the prime minister sees him as extremely capable. However, going from being the principle voice responsible for poutine festivals and history lessons to commerce and pipelines may be less a reward than a hand grenade. Moore spent the past five years atop the heritage and languages ministry, helping to repair the government’s reputation in the Francophone and fine arts communities after Harper’s remark that “ordinary people” didn’t care about arts funding during the 2008 federal election. The B.C. MP’s fluency in French, along with a penchant for photo ops, all played to his strengths. And while dealing with heritage, arts and language was a big portfolio, Moore’s new job puts him in line for some real heavy lifting. The youthful but veteran parliamentarian will spearhead a number of vital decisions as Canada’s economy continues its slow recovery. Industry oversees all elements of economic development — including investment, innovation, competitiveness and global trade. He will also be setting the tone on a couple of critical projects that sit before regulatory decisionmakers — the Enbridge Northern Gateway and the Kinder Morgan pipeline proposals. As with every minister, his duties will be to see that Canada’s regions as a whole share in the benefits of a growing economy. There will be locals watching to see how our communities fare when it comes to projects and benefits. Regularly rumoured to be a potential Conservative leadership candidate, Moore will be in a larger, hotter spotlight. That alone should make things very interesting.

KINDER MORGAN SHOULD JUST LEAVE THE INLET We, Burrard Inlet community residents are getting ready to tell Kinder Morgan about our requirements — simply put, to get out of Burrard Inlet, please. Ships don’t suddenly leak or sink. As we know, most often people sink ships. We do not want or need a bunker spill or worse in Burrard Inlet. The ships are much wider and deeper while the well-named Second Narrows remains narrow. Let common sense prevail — relocate the Kinder Morgan terminal to Robert’s Bank, where there’s less chance of an incident. Imagine an incident that damages or ‘takes out’ the Second Narrows rail bridge. A bunker spill in Burrard Inlet is potentially a big deal — Vancouver harbour business and national commerce could be significantly affected. Yes, we keep hearing about local spill bitumen clean up capabilities. So let’s see a live, public demonstration near Second Narrows. [Ottawa] keeps yacking about adding more spill and clean up funds [but] I’m not convinced and won’t be until there’s a federal law in place that deals specifically with a Burrard Inlet harbour-type spill. Burrard Inlet residents awake and rise — before it’s too late.

So the honeymoon begins

T

he summer legislative session is now half over, so it’s time for some observations and thoughts about what we’ve seen so far in the House: • The multitude of new faces around the legislature has changed the atmosphere for the better. There are more than 30 newbies, and perhaps because they’ve had to spend so much time trying not to get lost in the maze of corridors they haven’t had time to descend to the level of bitter partisanship that characterized the place the past few years. Let’s hope this continues. • The new government cabinet, which has a number of rookies, has so far performed fairly well. Education Minister Peter Fassbender has navigated the usually rocky shoals of the government’s relationship with the B.C. Teachers Federation fairly well, and Transportation Minister Todd Stone has ably deflected any criticism hurled at him by the Opposition. Veteran MLA Bill Bennett is new to the energy portfolio and has his hands full with B.C. Hydro, but acknowledges there are problems at the Crown Corporation that need to be dealt with and not swept under the carpet. One newcomer, Attorney-General Suzanne Anton, has had a bit of a shaky start but she’ll have time to grow into her role. New Health Minister Terry Lake has already had to deal with controversy (over a smoking cessation drug) but has weathered things well. • The NDP Opposition has yet to find its sea legs in the House. A number of veteran MLAs, no doubt devastated by the prospects of another four long years in Opposition, appear to have checked out, at least for now. It’s unlikely the NDP caucus will

VIEW FROM THE LEDGE Keith Baldrey

be re-energized any time soon, as it will probably take months for caucus members to get over that unexpected election loss. The only two members who seem to have their heads fully in the game right now are John Horgan and Mike Farnworth, and that may be because both may once again find themselves in a party leadership race should Adrian Dix step down as leader. • A whole bunch of issues that dominated question period and much of the political debate before the election are now mostly off the table. Remember the NDP’s constant demand for an inquiry into the sale of B.C. Rail? Goodbye! The attacks on Premier Christy Clark for constantly campaigning? No more. Even the ethnic memo furor, which the NDP is trying to revisit, has lost its edge. • Speaking of the premier, she hasn’t been around the legislature much as she spent several weeks campaigning in the Westside-Kelowna byelection, so she hasn’t had much of a physical presence. But there’s no doubt who is in charge, as her byelection win cemented her hold on her party. Just a few months ago, people were plotting to force her out of the job and now she is firmly steering the ship with apparently calm waters ahead. • B.C.’s first-ever Green Party MLA, Andrew Weaver, has demonstrated an

ability to get under the skin of the NDP. He isn’t given much opportunity to ask questions in Question Period, but he does get to vote on things. His decision to vote in favour of the B.C. Liberal government’s budget really irritated a number of NDP MLAs, who voiced their objections on social media. Weaver told me he voted for it because the election outcome made it obvious people want a balanced budget, so he was following the public’s lead. He said he didn’t necessarily think the budget will actually be balanced when all is said and done, but he was in favour of at least the concept of a balanced budget (something that sets him apart from the NDP). • Clark has been able to reward most members of her caucus with cabinet posts, parliamentary secretary appointments, committee memberships and caucus positions, most of which come with a boost in salary. Two MLAs, however, have been frozen out: Moira Stillwell and Sam Sullivan. Stillwell has been on the outs with Clark for months, and Sullivan beat Clark for the Vancouver mayoralty some years back. It looks like Clark is not in a forgiving mood towards some people. I wonder whether she will display a similar attitude to some key people in the business community who were less than loyal before her miracle win.

LETTERS SEARCH AND RESCUE NEEDS ITS KIT

Re: “Another rescue requires outside help,” Wednesday, July 10. As a former member of Coquitlam Search and Rescue, what is needed is at least one other company to produce Helicopter External Transportation System (HETS) kits to provide competition to Emergco. Competition is healthy. Secondly, why doesn’t North Shore Search and Rescue lend Coquitlam their second certified kit that is sitting around until Coquitlam’s kit arrives? And lastly, a regional team will not work as proven by the one hour delay last rescue. Coquitlam SAR needs a HETS kit to protect themselves and their subjects. Dwight Yochim Coquitlam

MORE ABOUT OFF-LEASH CANINES Re: “Reid wants city to ticket errant dog owners,”

Friday, July 5. From what one can see in the photo, the enclosure for off-leash dogs seems to be as big as poultry house, so how one can be even surprised that people with dogs do not want to use it? I do suspect, Coquitlam Coun. Mae Reid’s main [idea] for ticketing errant dog owners to death has been to make money out of it to pay for new park facilities, not because of dogs behaving badly in parks when off leash. Bozenna Siedlecka Port Moody

Re: “Ticket the dog owners” letter to the editor, Friday, July 12. In response to D.W. McAlpine’s rant about dogs on the Coquitlam trail, I must agree with him or her on his ‘fine them, fine them all’ statement, but to be fair I would like to add a few more to the list. I say fine all the cyclists that go faster than four miles an hour, fine the people who every day leave broken bottles, plastic bags, beer cans and fast food wrappers that litter the trails and water ways. I say fine all the people who camp and party by the water to smoke cigarettes and pot and leave their butts lying around. I say fine all the people who

make fires in the woods. I say fine all the developers for continually taking more and more from the nature areas for the almighty buck. This is apparently a democratic country — although in this dog case I think it’s the will of the extreme minority that is dictating the rules and making the laws for the majority. In the last 14 years I and my wife have walked the trail with our dogs, and yes, over that period there have been one or two altercations between dogs. These were sorted out by the owners. Taking into consideration that there have been an estimated 50 dogs a day over that period walking or running off leash without any disaster like damage to ‘sensitive salmon habitat’ or children’s lives being threatened, it seems that one or two people [with] alarmist views are dictating the habits of the masses who also like to enjoy the trails. Off leash parks are a band-aid solution for those living near them, but they must have dogs that are fine to play with other dogs. Hyper dogs can cause fights. It is not, however, a solution by any means for those who also like to have some healthy exercise with their family pet on the trails.

THE TRI-CITIES NOW | WEDNESDAY, JULY 17, 2013

Dogs need far more exercise than humans and enjoy constantly running up and down fetching sticks or balls while the owner makes his / her way at a chosen pace. I understand this can be annoying to cyclists who insist on flying out of blind rises and blind corners, and often in groups, at a speed where they have no chance of avoiding an accident. For the last 14 years we have hurriedly stepped out the way and grabbed our dogs to let them by, I don’t see that happening any more. In future the cyclists are going to have to exercise caution in case there is a living obstacle in their way, be it a child, adult, dog on leash or wild animal. The same goes for those who run in large groups. Where previously we would be forced off the trail to make way, it’s time for them to run in single file and share the trail. In my opinion, an option would be to dedicate either a realistic time for off leash dogs or section off some of the trail and let the majority of users continue to enjoy it as they have done for decades.

gerous weapons now in the safe hands of police. There was a Chinese or Russian assault rifle with a bayonet, a handgun similar to the ones used by James Bond, and a prohibited sawed-off shotgun. RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung noted most of the guns were turned in by people who had the weapons sitting around and just didn’t want them anymore, or were inherited from parents and grandparents. Chung said campaigns like the amnesty are a good way of getting guns out of circulation that could fall into the hands of criminals, or be the cause of an accident in the home. “If there is a break-in in the house, you don’t want these things to end up in the wrong hands,” he said. It was a similar sentiment from the Port Moody Police. “The firearm amnesty is an important tool to assist with public safety,” said Port Moody Police spokesperson Const. Luke van Winkel. “Anytime a firearm is turned over to the police, it is one less weapon that could fall into the wrong hands.” Most of the guns will likely be destroyed at some point. The list of weapons included guns and ammunition, even imitation and pellet weapons, pepper spray and knives. The amnesty did not include weapons used in a crime. Across the province there were 1,801 firearms and 155 other weapons turned in.

more times. Carol was pleasantly surprised when during one visit she noticed a woman lighting snowflake candles around the bench. She only hopes it gets easier to visit Amanda’s bench in the future. While the bench is a permanent memorial for Amanda, the bright sun radiating through the park does hide a darker side. The bench is one of four in the park dedicated to young people in the community whose lives ended prematurely from either suicide or other tragedies. Amanda’s bench was specifically placed beside another one dedicated to a friend who also passed away. It’s a fact not lost on Carol as she sits on her daughter’s bench on a gloriously sunny Sunday evening. “It’s a shame that we have young lives that are lost whether it’s through health reasons or tragic circumstances, it’s just another young life lost,” she said.

PoMo’s celebration of wood well engrained AS PART OF THE CITY’S CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION, WOOD IS IN THE SPOTLIGHT

Sam SMITH

K

editorial@thenownews.com nock on wood — Port Moody is celebrating its centennial birthday with a salute to a major centrepiece in the foundation of the city: wood. The Port Moody Arts Centre is hosting a “Celebration of Wood” beginning tomorrow (July 18) with a gallery exhibition opening from 6 to 8 p.m. focused on — you guessed it — the art of wood. Amanda Maxwell, communications coordinator for the Port Moody Arts Centre, said logging and saw-milling are embedded in Port Moody’s history, and the arts centre wanted to join in on the centennial celebration in a fun, but logical, way. “Port Moody is celebrating its centennial this year so the Arts Centre is joining in,” she said. A Wood Fair will follow on Saturday, July 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the grounds of the arts centre. It’s a free event for the family featuring displays and demonstrations of artisan work, children’s activities and more, according to a press release. Twenty-six artists are scheduled to be a part of the Wood Fair and 29 will be displaying work in the gallery, Maxwell said. Michael Dunn, 70, an artist and guitar maker for the past 47 years, is one such local putting in two pieces of finely crafted wood, with one being a little more functional than the other. “I made a one-third sized model of a World War I German biplane,” Dunn told The TriCities NOW. “I’ve been working off and on it for maybe eight months or more, kind of a spare time thing.” The plan originally started as an idea for a kite, Dunn said, but began to take on a life of

its own. “I painted it up in kind of a camouflage décor,” he said. The plane is one-third the size of the real thing — meaning inside the art gallery sits a wooden plane with a 10-foot wingspan. Dunn hadn’t planned on making the piece for the Celebration of Wood festivities, but when he was approached by the gallery it seemed to fit. And as a guitar maker for 47 years, he has also included one of his latest guitar creations, inspired from Bugatti Automobiles. It’s for music or car enthusiasts to enjoy, or anyone who appreciates guitars for that matter. “I thought ‘Why not?’” Dunn said. “I like doing that. You get to meet people and you get to talk about guitars. Sometimes you get interesting old guitar players or musicians.” Dunn will be attending the Wood Fair on Saturday and will be on site to discuss his pieces through the whole event. “It was fun to take part in this,” he said. “There’s some really neat stuff in the show. And if you can imagine the model of the plane is one-third size of the original plane and it’s hanging inside.” The plane also comes with a unique fictional back story he made himself about how it “used to harrass the crows that ruled the skies back in the 1920s.” The Wood Fair is a rare opportunity for the public to ask the 70-year-old questions about his artwork. The Celebration of Wood: Form and Function art show opens July 18 from 6 to 8 p.m. and runs until Aug. 11. The Wood Fair is only on Saturday, July 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Both events take place at the Port Moody Art Centre, located at 2425 St. Johns Street.

Among the artworks and displays that are part of the Celebration of Wood and Wood Fair is Myda Schmidt’s Late in the Day painting.

Be a volunteer and make a world of difference

Tom, Joseph, Irene and Donna meet once a month to talk about how their lives are affected by dementia. They are all caring for family members who are in various stages of the disease. They, like many Port Coquitlam residents, also all attend a free caregiver support group offered locally by the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. “This is their lifeline," says Dorothy Leclair, the society’s support and education coordinator for PoCo and the North Fraser region. “They can meet with people with similar issues who are in a unique position to offer support to others on the same journey. The group is a place that they can talk openly, share information and give each other mutual support." An estimated one in 11 B.C. residents over age 65 already live with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia. And that number is projected to double over the next generation.

Time for a Tri-Cities survey The Tri-Cities Early Childhood Development (ECD) Committee is hoping to hear from families with children aged 0-6, residents, and businesses in the Tri-Cities area through a survey they’ve launched to gain insight into their key marketing messages. As a part of their overall strategic and communications plans, the Tri-Cities ECD Committee hopes to gain valuable insight from survey participants that will help guide the committee to better serve the needs of children in the community, and asks the public for their input. The survey will be open until July 22, and is available at www.fluidsurveys.com/s/ TriCitiesECD. The committee includes a cross-section of individuals, service providers, and representatives from all levels of government, from the TriCities community with an interest in Early Childhood Development, community partnerships and the vision of the committee.

PoCo senior recognized for volunteer work

Sylvia Dubickas was recognized Monday for her dedicated community service to a number of local causes. As one of nine national winners, the Port Coquitlam senior earned $500 for a charity of choice — donated by Home Instead, Inc., franchisor of the Home Instead Senior Care network and contest sponsor.

Dubickas has dedicated many hours a week to her favourite causes over the past 15 years — the Eagle Ridge United Church and the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation Auxiliary — as well as being a positive role model for all those who she comes in contact with. “Sylvia represents so well the dedication and commitment that make senior volunteers

such a value to their communities,” said Jeff Huber, president of Home Instead, Inc. “She has proven once again that age is meaningless when it comes to making a difference. So many charities, non-profit organizations and faith communities could not do the work they are doing without selfless volunteers such as Sylvia.”

The Salute to Senior Service program was launched last year by the Home Instead Senior Care network to honour Canadian seniors’ commitments to their causes and communities. For more information about Home Instead’s Salute to Senior Service program, visit SalutetoSeniorService.ca.

The five golden grilling rules

S

ummertime is here and chances are, outdoor BBQ grilling will play a part in bringing food to the table this season. Thus, I thought it would be beneficial to share with you a few ground rules for grilling that ON FOOD I believe will Chef Dez enhance your overall experience and quality of food. Rule No. 1 — Never Clean Your Grill. Now when I say “grill” in this case, I mean the cooking grates/grids themselves. The buildup of fallen food debris captured in the basin of the BBQ itself does need to be cleaned out periodically to prevent grease fires and to extend the life of the shell of your outdoor grill, as these these particles will collect moisture and eventually lead to deterioration. The grates/grids however, should not be removed and scrubbed down in the sink with a scouring pad, for example. The only “cleaning” to the grates/grids should be simply with a wire BBQ brush. This will help build more of a

non-stick surface through the natural seasoning of the cooking processes much like a cast iron frying pan. At the end of your cooking process, turn off the gas and let your BBQ cool as you normally would, then pack it away. When preparing for the next cookout, preheat your grill over high heat which will in turn transform the residual cooked-on food to char that will be easily removed with a good brushing. Rule No. 2 — Always Preheat. Ensuring your grill is extremely hot will not only burn off any residual food bits from your last cookout, it will also guarantee great crust formation (and grill lines) on your food. Why do we bother cooking food on a grill in the first place? The answer: Flavour. The crusting process is the caramelizing of the natural sugars in the proteins (or added sugars) to create flavour. It is for this same reason that we don’t boil steaks; boiling steaks in water would still cook the meat, but they would be extremely lacking in flavour and texture.

Rule No. 3 — Oil The Meat. Oiling the meat in advance will not only help enhance the crusting process (and the resulting increase in flavour), it will also assist in creating a non-stick environment. I always oil the meat before seasoning with salt and pepper just prior to going onto a hot preheated grill. Rule No. 4 — Oil The Grates/Grids. In combination with oiling the meat, this will also help in flavour creation and ease of release. Both of these oiling procedures should be done with an oil that has a high smoke point. This is not an application for your extra virgin olive oil. Grapeseed oil would be perfect, but a canola or vegetable oil will work fine. Oiling the grates/grids however should be done once they have been preheated. Protecting your hand with a grill mitt, dab some oil on a cloth and quickly, but efficiently, wipe down the hot grills. Be careful not to have the cloth soaking with oil to the point that would cause flare-ups. A light coating of oil will work fine. This is the same procedure you should practice when cooking in a stainless steel (not non-stick) pan: preheat the pan first, and then add

the oil, then the food. Rule No. 5 — Leave It Alone. Once the above four rules have been followed and the meat has been placed on the grill, the worst thing you could do is to prematurely break that contact of meat with grill. Even with following the above rules religiously, the meat will stick... at first. Leaving it alone allows it to create a crust (grill marks) and thus helping to release it from the cooking surface. If you are following the rules above and your meat is stuck to the grill, chances are it is trying to tell you that it is not ready to be flipped yet. Although there are other important things to remember about outdoor grilling, these are your ground rules that should always be applied in any situation.

hey’ve had their share of sweet rewards and harsh lessons. Now, for four members of the Heritage Woods Kodiaks senior girls volleyball team, this summer is all about using those lessons to shape their future. Madison Burt, Alessandra Gentile, Emma Jennings and Alison McKay have said their goodbyes and celebrated graduating from high school, all while preparing for the next stage of their athletic and educational lives. Each is going a separate way — Burt to the University of Guelph, Gentile to UBC, Jennings to the University of Toronto, and McKay to Simon Fraser University — but the bond of volleyball will remain a strong tie. “It’s been really exciting but I’m happy to move on with my life,” said Jennings of the past few months. “I’ve wanted to do this for so long.” A leftside power with the provincial AAAA silver medallists, Jennings says last year’s heartbreaking five-set loss in the final to South Delta is still a powerful memory. But so are the moments where the team gelled, thrived and prevailed. “The most important thing was to learn from it,” she said. “We gave everything we had and left it on the court — and just to see how much respect we got from that crowd was incredible. I keep that in my mind more than the result.” Their shared journey, which began with Gentile and McKay playing together in Grade 6, is packed with so many great moments that last year’s five-set finish isn’t the defining moment, but a chapter of a lengthy, enjoyable book. In fact, the team is still the theme that they will carry with them along their own path. “Definitely, it was tough,” noted Burt. “It still haunts me that we lost, but we went through it as a team and I couldn’t have asked to be with a greater group of girls... We grew as the season went on.” They ladle a lot of credit onto head coach Alex Seres, who guided them throughout their high school years. His calm, steady demeanour created a great environment in which to thrive, said Gentile, a two-time provincial all-star. “Alex has taught us a lot of life lessons as well as volleyball,” she recalled. “He taught us to be calm on the court and respect our teammates. He was my coach in high school and club so I owe him a lot.” Gentile, Jennings and McKay played under Seres with the B.C.

The Saints bowed out of the best-of-three series after losing last Tuesday’s series opener 14-10. Friday’s curtain call saw Tyler Klarner and Connor Goodwin muster second-period goals, while the Thunder outshot PoCo 56-33. Game 1 saw the Saints outshot by a 57-35 margin.

Four players, four different destinations. Heritage Woods grads, from left, Alessandra Gentile, Emma Jennings, Madison Burt and Alison McKay are taking their respective volleyball careers to universities across Canada. went on to edge BCO for third place at the nationals. McKay said the team aspect of the sport has always been one reason why she chose it over other sports — her father Dave McKay is a former national wrestling coach. “It was a four-year process that we worked towards. I really like the team chemistry we had, we came together as one and when you looked at your team you knew what each person was going to do,” recalled McKay. Shifting to new places, new schools and new roles will be an incredible test that each is eager to take on. The past four years battling side-by-side, that saw them finish fourth and second in the past two provincials, has prepared them well. Gentile anticipates a smooth learning curve as she transitions to UBC and a new position as setter for the six-time defending Canadian university champions. “I feel the first year is about getting yourself settled into a new life, being a student-athlete at university,” said Gentile,

who was chosen as the top high school player in a poll of B.C.’s CIS coaches. “I’m looking forward to settling down as a setter, as I did both (power) and setting. It allows me to be calmer on the court.” Burt and Jennings will be leaving home to play on the Ontario university circuit — and earn their stripes on their respective teams. “This (past) year I worked so hard, sacrificing everything for school and volleyball. I’m so happy to be going to U of T, it’s a great school. It makes me feel so good that I’ve taken it this far,” said Jennings. While they will be scattered in two very distant provinces, Burt believes the bonds built over the past four or more years will endure, and help them make the next adjustment. “We are extremely tight and bonded,” the middle said. “Volleyball has always been my passion, but I’m ready to experience being on my own.”

FINISHING IN FINE FORM B.C ‘S GRIDIRON GOLD The Coquitlam Reds closed out the B.C. Premier Baseball League’s regular season by winning three of their last four games. The Reds stumbled out of the gates Saturday, falling 5-4 to White Rock, before rebounding in the back half of the twin bill with a resounding 10-0 win. Jordan Zazulak tallied three RBIs, with Ryan Mose picking up the win on the mound. Sunday’s doubleheader saw the Reds dispatch the Vancouver Cannons by scores of 5-2 and 11-6. Curtis Taylor struck out six in eight innings in Game 1, while Max Hollingworth tallied his 45th and 46th RBIs of the year in Game 2. The playoffs kick off on Saturday, July 20.

A quintet of Tri-Cities football players helped Team B.C. cop gold Saturday at the Red River Cup tournament in Winnipeg. The under-16 invitational pitted five teams against one another — including two each from Manitoba and Saskatchewan — and culminated with Team B.C.’s 34-21 win over Team Winnipeg West. TheB.C.contingentincludedPortCoquitlam natives Mario Marra and Elijah John, as well as Coquitlam products Taylor Poitras, Darius MacKay and Sean Stewart. Team B.C. finished with a 3-2 record overall, and its win in Saturday’s final avenged a 21-16 loss to Winnipeg West earlier in the tournament.

THREAT TAKE FIFTH Illness and injuries did little to deter North Coquitlam’s under-17 Girls Xtreme soccer team, which put together a respectable fifthplace finish at the recently-held Provincial B Cup playdowns. The club marched through the tourney with wins over Surdel (3-0) and Terrace (31), while also tying Comox 1-1. The club would eventually fall to the eventual gold medal winners in the Lakehill Reds, relegating them to the 5/6 game on account of goal differential. Standout performers and goal scorers included Hanna Parmar and Lauren Kirkpatrick, as well as the yeoman’s work put forward by u-15 callup Adrianna Corrado.

Finding the silver lining

Though none were of the golden variety, it was a medal haul nonetheless for Tri-Cities teams participating in a pair of provincial box lacrosse showdowns last weekend. Held in Coquitlam, the female tourney featured age groups spanning peewee, bantam midget and junior clubs, and the PoCo Saints were particularly well represented. The Saints copped second in three age groupings: the peewees lost 8-3 to New West, the bantam side fell 7-2 to Ridge Meadows and the midget club dropped a 4-3 decision

Fore for Literacy

Literacy is everyone’s issue. 40% of BC adults struggle with the skills necessary to read a newspaper, fill out a work application form, read a map, or understand a lease. In BC, one in four children is “developmentally vulnerable” when beginning kindergarten and one student in five is not completing high school in the expected time. Why not swing into action for literacy by supporting the Port Moody Public Library’s annual Links to Literacy Golf Tournament as a sponsor, golfer or banquet attendee? This year’s tournament takes place on Tuesday, August 27th at Meadow Garden’s Golf Club in Pitt Meadows. Now in its 13th year, the tournament’s success is due to the generosity of individuals, local businesses and major sponsors such as Scotiabank. “In addition to Scotiabank’s corporate support for Links to Literacy, many of our employees volunteer their time to support the Library and its community programs,” says Terry Kocurek, Scotiabank Branch Manager in Port Moody. ” As an organization, we consider community involvement to be an important part of the way we live, work and do business every day. Literacy is the foundation for learning at any age, and we are delighted to support this cause through Scotiabank Bright Future.” Proceeds from the Links to Literacy tournament are used to fund library literacy initiatives that benefit the broader community. Past tournaments have funded projects such as: a Reading Link partnership with local schools; a children’s library card campaign; Links to Language family multilingual kits; laptops for literacy training; enclosed study rooms; and a “Read Today, Lead Tomorrow” speaker series. For more details on this year’s Links to Literacy tournament, visit the Library’s website at www. library.portmoody.ca/links or phone 604-469-4577.
