Stanley Cup riots: How did it all come to Port Moody officers among riot response Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com Shock. Dismay. Disbelief. Emotions are still running high in the aftermath of Wednesday night’s riots that ransacked Vancouver’s downtown core. Violence erupted in the once-festive streets as the Canucks lost their grip on the Stanley Cup. Rioters unabashedly burned cars, smashed windows, looted stores and taunted police. Onlookers immortalized the chaos with photos and videos that have since spread across social media sites. More than a dozen Port Moody police officers were part of the effort to restore control to city streets. Const. Bill Kim said the local police department was prepared to help, and up to 14 Port Moody officers were deployed to help manage the mayhem. “We were placed in areas that they thought was needed to either add security or to enhance the members

in those spots,” Kim said Thursday. “I don’t know the specific areas they were deployed to, but I think it was terrifying for everyone.” Although police officers were outnumbered, they handled the situation professionally, Kim said. “When it comes to these types of things, it’s always a small group of troublemakers. They’re hooligans. They’re thugs,” he said. “They’ve got no saving grace and it really put a black mark to what was a great event. … Even with enough preparation and planning, how do you plan for something of this magnitude? It’s beyond the scope.” For Simon Fraser University social psychology professor Stephen Wright, it’s important to distinguish between the different groups of people that flooded downtown streets. “There were clearly some people there for whom this was an opportunity to make a political statement and to describe their particular view

These are the people who are regularly involved in these types of activities when there’s an opportunity to do so and bring some attention to their particular cause. … These are the recognizable guys who

came prepared to create violence and vandalism,” Wright said. “They’re distinguishable from the guys who were brawling and fighting, which is surprisingly common when a large number of people are

exiting an event drunk.” The majority of people, however, seemed to be there simply to watch, Wright said. “There were all these young people walking around with their video cameras and their cellphones taking pictures

Humorous construction signs may disarm road rage John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Imagine pulling up to a new construction project or an unexpected detour and being greeted with a sign that reads: “Good morning, you’re not going to like this route.” That could become the norm if at least one Coquitlam councillor gets her way. The introduction of light-hearted traffic signage was just one of the elements discussed at Monday’s engineering committee meeting, as staff and council members discussed the social impacts of construction in the city. Among the items that were suggested to mitigate those concerns was a suggestion by

Coun. Mae Reid for the city to begin using silly signage to offset the frustration of extended commutes and blocked roadways. Reid said she got the idea from her travels in California, where municipal officials in that state have taken to the new form of signage over the last 10 years. “They put funny signs up and people actually read them, they laugh and it takes the anger out of the moment,” she said. “You just have to have fun with this stuff. It notifies people, they look at it and they smile. They go with it.” Outside of Reid’s signage suggestion, staff has introduced a number of changes to construction contracts that puts more of the onus on contractors: more stringent traffic manage-

ment plans; changeable message signs and a move to better accommodate pedestrians and cyclists. Coun. Brent Asmundson addressed concerns around construction companies using residential streets as “staging areas” for their projects — leaving trucks and equipment on local roads for, in some cases, multiple months at a time. He noted that a company doing work near Victoria Hall recently used the parking lot for a couple of months to store its equipment. “If they are putting them there, they should pay for that space,” he said, adding that the city should also develop a more comprehensive registry of local projects on its website. Mayor Richard Stewart offered up that same kind of anecdotal evidence, saying that he

saw a pile of soil blocking a curb lane off of Brunette Avenue last week. He said there was no signage of any sort to note that blockage. “It’s not just construction. There is an element of common sense missing,” he said. Coun. Selina Robinson, who chairs the city’s universal access-ability committee, spoke to how sidewalks and other pieces of roadway are temporarily patched up with metal sheets or plywood during construction work. She wants the city to use the thinnest type of replacement material available to ensure that people with mobility challenges can make it over them. “If you’re in a wheelchair, a walker, or a scooter, that is not benign,” she said. “You cannot get to the bus stop, and so you’ve become essentially trapped.”Anmore creek crossing to

John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Additional firefighting resources and a carefully crafted communications strategy are among the top of mind plans for Coquitlam as the city braces for a prolonged closure of a major thoroughfare. The 12-week closure of King Edward Street — from the Lougheed Highway to United Boulevard — is slated to begin Aug. 6, and council and staff convened at Monday’s engineering committee meeting to figure out how to mitigate the impacts of that closure for residents and businesses. Among the main points of concern was how emergency crews will service the area during that time. To that end, Coquitlam Fire and Rescue will devote an engine company — consisting of an officer, driver and two firefighters — to that area specifically. The crew will either be housed in a city-owned trailer or a trailer provided by the project’s contractor team, Kiewit. “What that means is the company

TV, video games and movies, Wright added. “I’m not surprised at all that the very same people who’ve grown up on a steady diet of observing and playing violence are then intrigued to watch it when they see it in person. … There was a large number of people for whom this was a spectacle, an event to be observed and maybe laughed at and to participate in very, very minor ways in these activities,” he said. “That’s what escalated the behaviour of those that were participating. That’s what made it difficult for the cops to get in and do what they were supposed to do. Those people were stupid but they didn’t do anything wrong.” Their behaviour was “entirely consistent” with how they’re expected to react to violence on TV or in video games, he said. “We expect them to enjoy it, to be exhilarated by it, to have their blood rushing, to be cheering and so on,” Wright said. “Yet when it happens in person, we’re somehow amazed and angered that they do exactly the same thing.” Peter Chow-White, assistant professor in SFU’s school of communication, observed the role of social media in the midst of the madness. “The younger generation … pulls out a camera and take photos, whether it’s a concert or a game or a riot.

District 43 saves $500,000 with HST jmcfee@thenownews.com School District 43 saved $500,000 with the implementation of the harmonized sales tax, and more savings could follow. Assistant secretary-treasurer Bob Janzen said school districts receive a higher tax rebate with the HST than they did with the previous tax system. “You can’t think like a consumer because unlike a consumer, school districts received a rebate on the GST of 68 per cent. So when they introduced the harmonized sales tax back last year, they changed the rebate such that, in effect, districts got 79.1 per cent of the tax back. We would pay the HST, but we would get a rebate of 79.1 per cent of that tax,”

half a million dollars in that budget year because we could do so and the net impact was the same,” Janzen said. The provincial government recently announced plans to reduce the provincial portion of the blended tax by one per cent on July 1, 2012, followed by another one per cent on July 1, 2014. This reduction would not effect the school district’s 2011-12 budget. However, savings would occur the following school year. “It’s anticipated if the HST remains in place and it’s reduced by one per cent, the saving across the district might be an additional $78,000,” Janzen said. “It will reduce a further one per cent in 2014 — a further $78,000 savings.”

Janzen told trustees Tuesday. “So the effect of the harmonized sales tax was actually to reduce our costs because of the way the rebate was applied.” Under the previous system with sevenper-cent PST and five-per-cent GST, the school district paid an effective tax rate of 8.6 per cent after the GST rebate was applied. With the 12-per-cent HST, the school district pays a net tax of 2.5 per cent due to the provincial government’s HST rebate. As a result, the school district anticipated a savings of $500,000 during the 2010-11 budget process. Non-salary budgets were reduced by this amount across the district. “We reduced operating budgets by

City and region at odds over water regulations John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Whether it’s jurisdiction over land use or regulations around when to water your lawn, the City of Coquitlam and Metro Vancouver continue to not see eye to eye. The regional authority introduced new regulations June 1 that changed lawn sprinkling times from twice daily to only once: evennumbered addresses can water lawns Monday, Wednesday or Saturday mornings between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m. Odd-numbered addresses can water lawns on Tuesday, Thursday or Sunday mornings between 4 a.m. and 9 a.m. Those time changes require individual municipalities to enact bylaw changes that reflect those new times. And while Port Moody and Port Coquitlam have both gone that route,

Coquitlam has decided not to. When the issue came to Coquitlam’s engineering committee meeting earlier this month, the item was referred back to staff. “We have sent it back to staff and said, ‘No, we don’t agree with this and we want to have more discussion,’ because right now it’s very confusing to the public,” said Coun. Brent Asmundson, who sits on Metro Vancouver’s water committee. “You’ve got an existing set of rules this year and then you announce a new set of rules with no enforcement. So how do you enforce and educate people when you have two rules?” Instead of adopting those times, Coquitlam has the following regulations in place from now through until Sept. 30: even-numbered addresses Wednesdays and Saturdays and odd numbered addresses Thursdays and Sundays between the hours of 4 a.m. and 9 a.m. and 7

p.m. and 10 p.m. The main point of objection from Coquitlam’s perspective is the timing of the changes. Metro Vancouver’s board of directors approved the change in March and then asked municipalities to have their accompanying bylaws in order by June. Given that timeframe, municipalities have missed out on properly communicating the changes to their residents via municipal calendars and pamphlets, the majority of which are printed before the start of the calendar year. When taking that into account, a large volume of incorrect materials has likely already been printed. “The process for it was poor on Metro Vancouver’s part,” Asmundson said. “There could be some confusion.” Those same sentiments were shared by PoCo

added. The district will pay about $35,000 in expenses. Board chair Melissa Hyndes said she is excited to hear about the announcement. “It’s taken a long time for that to come to fruition, but now that it is, it’s exciting to know that they’re actually being proactive and giving us the property to build a proper school on a school site,” Hyndes said. A middle school and six elementary schools are also planned for the area.

School District 43 is one step closer to building a high school in Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain neighbourhood. Secretary-treasurer Rick Humphreys said the board has accepted a provincial land offer for a 5.8-hectare site. “The Crown, through the Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, has granted the Burke

Mountain Secondary site to the school district,” he said at Tuesday’s board meeting. Now the school district will try to get a project agreement so it can start construction on the 1,200-student school as soon as possible. “This has been many years in the making,” Humphreys said. “We’re pleased to have another project underway.” The land transaction will be an accounting entry between natural resource and education ministries, Humphreys

Mayor Greg Moore, whose council passed the first three reading of that municipality’s lawn sprinkling bylaws on Monday. “I think confusion could occur when people are reading their local paper and they see one municipality one way and one municipality a different way,” he said. Metro Vancouver spokesperson Bill Morrell conceded that the changes could bewilder some people, and for that reason, the region is encouraging an education-first approach rather than wholesale ticketing in the first year. “We appreciate that it has created some confusion and difficulties and thus, the notion is that this year the focus will not be on enforcement, but rather on education,” he said Thursday. Calls to Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini were not returned before NOW deadlines.

my role with the city and socially through my involvement in community activities,” Royer said in a news release. Royer had been city manager since January 2004. Prior to that time, he served as the city’s director of community services and held positions in Surrey and Whitehorse. Royer also spent 22 years working as a military engineer in the Canadian Air Force. “Gaëtan Royer’s leaving the City of Port Moody is a great loss for the organ-

The City of Port Moody would not have achieved the success it has without his dedication, expertise and guidance.” The city’s news release notes that discussions regarding the appointment of a new city manager will take place in the coming weeks.

I want to thank Dr. Bennett and her staff, for the fantastic service they have provided and would sincerely recommend laser treatment for anyone with pain.”

Our View

Healing those broken B.C. hearts These wounds run wide. The hurt runs deep. The last two months have been such an incredible ride watching the province’s only NHL team make its way through one of the best playoff runs in franchise history. We believed. With every stitch of blue and green thread, we believed this was the year the Stanley Cup would be hoisted by the Vancouver Canucks. Sometimes you get the bounces. Sometimes you don’t. But on Wednesday, no bounces went past Tim Thomas. The Bruins earned that win and title of “champions,” and Beantown deserves its ticker-tape parade. It hurts, having lost. It truly does. But what should have passed for a glum evening of recalling passed pucks — the chances that were, the moments that weren’t — turned into a spectacle that defies all logic. Thugs plundered Vancouver city streets for nothing more than drunken thrill. Avarice and barbarity ruled the night — and that seems to hurt even more. We must take heart that a committed group of individuals used social media to come together early on Thursday to clean the streets. It is a public assertion to reclaim the city, region and province from daft behaviour. We trust the Vancouver Police Department and accompanying officers will thoroughly investigate the matter and bring the individuals responsible to justice. People who were downtown recording footage of riots, looting or other criminal behaviour are asked to email their film and images to the department by e-mailing robbery@vpd.ca. If you recognize someone, please identify them for police. We cannot undo the acts that have been done, but we can take a stand against them.

Perspective

HST debate: Tax fails the test of fairness

Editor’s note: This is the second in a series of varying opinion pieces The NOW will publish in advance of the HST referendum. To read more, visit www.thenownews.com.

R

eluctantly (and pending significant reforms in the next few weeks), I’ll be voting against the HST this June. It’s a difficult decision, and indeed some associated with my organization have landed on the other side of this question. I come to my position reluctantly because I do not relish joining anti-tax Seth campaigns (they tap into a current in political culture that ill-serves us in the long term). I accept the arguments that a value-added sales tax such as the HST is more economically efficient than the old PST. That said, the economic benefits of the HST have been grossly overstated by its proponents. Many of the businesses that will most benefit from the HST (particularly in the resource sector) are much more sensitive to demand-side considerations (namely the global market for their products) than to supply-side considerations like taxes when making their investment decisions. These caveats notwithstanding, there are core design flaws in the HST that mean the tax as currently structured is simply unfair, and exacerbates trends that have undermined the overall progressivity of B.C.’s tax system for the past decade. Those trends are two-fold: • A shift in government revenues from corporations to households; and • At the household level, a shift from progressive income taxes to regressive consumption taxes, such

that upper-income households have seen a much larger drop in their taxes. From the time the HST was introduced, Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives economists have provided nuanced analysis highlighting key flaws, but showing how these can be fixed. Their recommendations, however, have thus far been ignored. The government has stubbornly refused to fix what is broken. And in the absence of a willingness to redress these defects, I am resigned to voting against the tax. When comparing the overall corporate tax regime in B.C. to other jurisdicKlein tions, there is simply no compelling case that the corporate sector in B.C. was in need of a massive tax reduction. The HST system, by providing rebates for taxes paid on inputs, bestows upon businesses a tax cut of somewhere between $730 million and $2 billion. As it is, corporate tax rates has been dropping for years, and global accounting firm KMPG consistently finds B.C. to be one of the least-expensive places in which to do business in the industrialized world. I’m sure many businesses appreciated the tax cut, but there is no evidence they needed it. At the household level, British Columbian consumers will be paying more (about $1.3 billion more, according to the recent report of the governmentappointed HST panel). Fundamentally, the HST and its low-income credit, as currently structured, fail the equity test. The credit largely off-sets the higher HST costs for the poorest British Columbians, but its early and quick phase-out means that many modest and middle income households will be facing higher costs. It is possible, however, to envision a reformed

My View

HST regime that I would be happy to support; changes that would see B.C. realize the economic and efficiency benefits of the HST, while adequately addressing and offsetting the equity impacts of this shift from the PST to the HST. Some have proposed doing this by simply lowering the HST by one percentage point. That would be ill-advised; it would be expensive (about $800 million), and would provide a large benefit to many upper-income households that are not in need of such a reduction. A much better approach would be to restructure the HST credit, along the lines of the Canada child tax benefit or old age security, such that the phaseout is much more gradual. This more generous credit could be paid for by an increase in the general corporate income tax rate — equivalent to what the corporate sector is saving due to the HST. Such an approach would not impact most of the smaller service-sector businesses that have been harmed by the HST (as they are subject to the much lower small-business corporate income tax rate). Ultimately, it is unfortunate that we will be voting on a terribly narrow referendum question that will produce no particularly positive outcome either way. As a province, we would be much better served by a Fair Tax Commission, in which we put the entire B.C. tax and royalty regime on the table. British Columbians deserve a chance to thoughtfully deliberate on all the options, and to determine together how we want to raise the revenues we need to meet our social, environmental and economic goals. Seth Klein is the B.C. director of the Canadian Cenetre for Policy Alternatives.

what to have for lunch. Well, we may be about to be had — for lunch. The demands on government always exceed the available resources. We elect politicians to make choices, often tough ones. California uses “direct democracy” (propositions), and it is a disaster — they get their reduced taxes, but have had to close schools and set free dangerous prisoners because of prison overcrowding. Only people can pay taxes. There are no magic corporations to tax. Higher business taxes, especially on the smaller businesses, can only come from higher prices (in effect, just hidden taxes), lower wages, fewer staff or closed businesses. Business activities generate substantial government revenues through fees, licences, royalties, payroll taxes and so on. And business profits, at least with domestic companies and shareholders, do still get taxed, when profits are paid out to shareholders (including pension funds). As always, it is an issue of balance — who to tax and how much. Taxes are needed, but not when they cause more harm than good. Consumption taxes like the HST are far and away the fairest. The wealthy consume more, and pay more. On balance, the poor pay almost nothing, especially with the low-income rebates and exemptions on food and residential rents. So, we have a choice to make — accept the HST, which will fairly and efficiently help fund the services that we want, or kill the HST and with it services and jobs. The choice is ours. And if the latter, we better not whine about service cuts. Ian MacLeod Richmond

Kirmac donates $120,000 to hospital Glass is transparent, which means you can see through it. And apparently behind glass beats a very big heart. Kirmac Collision and Autoglass, a Coquitlam-based collision repair company, presented a cheque for $120,000 to the B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation Miracle Weekend telethon that ran June 4 to 5 in Vancouver. The contribution comes as part of the company’s charitable program, Kirmac Cares for Kids, which donates a percentage of revenue from each vehicle repair to the foundation. “As a proud, family owned business that’s operated for nearly 40 years, it gives us great pleasure to be able to give back to the kids,” said Kirmac’s CEO Ian McIntosh. “Our customers have been a key contributor to this program and we hope they will continue to support it and help us make a difference every year for those who need our help the most.” Founded in 1973 by Ian and Ken McIntosh, Kirmac has grown into a collision repair company with regional operations in both British Columbia and Washington State. The Kirmac Cares for Kids program started last year in all of Kirmac’s 10 Metro Vancouver locations. The donation also included contributions from Kirmac employees through activities like “Jeans Day Friday” and regular payroll deductions. B.C. Children’s Hospital provides expert care for the province’s most seriously ill or injured children, including newborns and adolescents. The hospital also provides vital specialized health services that may not be available anywhere else in the province.

The sweet taste of retail success Cupcake Girls to speak at momcafé networking event Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com

Lori Joyce and Heather White are the duo behind the Cupcakes brand and Cupcake Girls TV show.

They built their business one cupcake at a time, and now the Cupcake Girls are sharing the secret to their sweet success with the TriCities business community. Heather White and Lori Joyce, co-founders of the Vancouver-based Cupcakes bakery, will speak at a momcafé event in Port Moody Thursday morning. The long-time friends will discuss how to develop a strong brand, as well as how they balance business with family. Their workforce connection began when they were 15-year-old retail employees in Victoria. At that time, they shared a com“We’re always mon dream of encouraging owning their own business. anybody … to They parted come and check ways after high it out.” school for post-secondary education and Julie Nowell reunited in New Momcafé Member York in 2001. The 9-11 tragedy inspired White and Joyce to follow their dream and start their own business — something fun and fresh as a return to simpler times. They started their first bakery in April 2002 on Denman Street in Vancouver. Since then, they have opened two corporate bakeries and four franchises across the Lower Mainland. Another franchise is set to open in Victoria later this year. Tri-Cities resident Julie Nowell connected with the Cupcake Girls through Twitter and invited them to speak at a local networking initiative. The duo agreed. Tickets are now on sale for the June 22 event, which will run from 9:15 to 11:15 a.m. at the Boathouse Restaurant at 2770 Esplanade St. Childcare will be available. Although the event is hosted by momcafé — a national women’s networking group — anyone is welcome to attend. “We’re always encouraging anybody — male, female, mom, dad, non-mom, non-dad — to come and check it out,” Nowell said.

ADOPT-A-PET • ANIMAL: CAT • BREED:HIMALAYAN MANX • SEX: NEUTERED MALE • AGE: ADULT

Bart is a big handsome boy with a sweet nature. He was scared and in rough shape when he arrived and had a nasty wound above his eye. Bart’s all healed up and ready to find his forever home! Bart would love a quiet home where he can snuggle and relax. Bart has beautiful blue eyes and a thick coat that will need regular grooming. Bart has no tail at all which makes his look even more unique. Bart doesn’t seem to concerned about the other cats and tends to stick to himself mostly.

WINSTON • ANIMAL: CAT • BREED:DSH • SEX: NEUTERED MALE • AGE: ADULT

Winston is an adorable guy with big chunky cheeks. He is a bit shy and needs a little reassurance that you’re his friend...then he loves to get those cheeks rubbed!! Winston has been sticking to himself mostly but doesn’t seem bothered by the other cats. Winston would do best in a home that is fairly quiet so he can relax and enjoy a good snuggle with his new person.

• ANIMAL:CAT • BREED: DMH • SEX: SPAYED FEMALE • AGE: ADULT Ella is a sweet and very affectionate girl. She loves to jump up on your lap and have a good snuggle. Ella needs a home with out any other animals, especially dogs. It seems like Ella gets along fairly well with cats, but was returned from her last home because she was pooping outside the box and we believe it’s because she was unhappy living with the dog.

REGGIE

• ANIMAL: DOG • BREED: LEONBERGERXGRTPYRENNES • SEX: SPAYED FEMALE • AGE: ADULT

Reggie is a big and handsome boy. He is very shy at first and has a sensitive soul. Reggie just wants to snuggle that big head on your lap and have his head rubbed. Reggie is a large boy and needs a home that can accommodate his size! He does have bad hips, likely due to poor breeding, but it doesn’t stop him! A home that has experience with large breed dogs would be best for Reggie. Reggie hasn’t been assessed with cats or other dogs yet, as he was recovering from his neuter. Please contact the shelter for more info.

Once she makes friends, she’s a big goofy dog who loves to snuggle and give kisses. Koko would do best with a family that has dog experience as she needs some work on her basic obedience. Koko is working on socializing with other dogs and is making progress thanks to the volunteers. We would recommend she continue working with a trainer in her new home. Koko needs a home without cats or small animals.

• ANIMAL: CAT • BREED: DSH • SEX: SPAYED FEMALE • AGE: ADULT

Minto is a young and friendly cat with lots of energy. She wants to play all the time and will zip around the cat room looking for toys. Minto is affectionate once she’s worn out from playing and would make a great addition to any family. Minto is getting along well with the other cats and would be fine in a home with other cats.

Behind every work zone cone is a worker in a vulnerable position. Each cone stands for someone’s father, mother, son, or daughter. That’s why it’s important to know that thousands of people working by the roadside in B.C. are counting on you to slow down and drive with care when approaching a “cone zone.“

The Chevrolet Camaro has a whole lot going on in the realm of styling and design, not to mention what’s under the hood.

Nostalgia meets sophistication David Chao and Bob McHugh editorial@thenownews.com

The big news from the Camaro camp is a power upgrade to its base V-6 engine for model year 2011. Chevrolet engineers have managed to squeeze 312 horsepower out of the 3.6litre engine so that it now out powers the base engines in the Ford Mustang and the Dodge Challenger. If you were around for the first go-around of “musclecar war” back in the late ’60s and early ’70s, you probably experienced something nostalgic to that announcement. These days, however, auto manufacturers also have to keep an eye on fuel economy, and engine is the big seller. Beneath the attractive return-to-roots styling exercise of the fifth-generation Camaro is a sophisticated rear-drive chassis, two powerful engine choices and some advanced technology engineering. And while it may benefit from nostalgic, buy-American sentiment south of the border, it was engineered in Australia and is built in Canada.

Friday, June 17, 2011

The re-emergence of Camaro has also revived an old head-to-head rivalry with the Ford Mustang. In addition to its lead in V-6 engine power, the new Camaro also offers the advantages of a fully-independent rear suspension, a longer wheelbase and a wider track. The Camaro LS and LT models come with that potent, direct-injection V-6 engine, which it borrowed from the Cadillac CTS. This engine is mated to either a six-speed manual or an optional sixspeed automatic (with a manual mode) transmission. Flat-out acceleration to 100 km/h takes about six seconds, which is impressively fast. Compared to the original ’67, the new Camaro is longer, wider and taller. It has bigger wheels, which come in 18inch to 21-inch rim sizes, and these also account for a small increase in overall height. Regardless of the rim size ordered for the new Camaro, its tire-to-body gap is always the same so that it doesn’t detract from the overall look of the vehicle. A drop-dead gorgeous design and a thrill to drive, the new Chevrolet Camaro is everything you expect a Camaro to be — and more.

Score Card

Coquitlam hall to celebrate 2010 achievers You take a triple-triple, a Minto Cup title, and a Pac-10 crown, and what do you get? It’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to accomplishments for Coquitlam athletes in 2010. As part of Wednesday’s second annual induction ceremony of career achievers, the Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame is also honouring the best of 2010 with its Wall of Fame awards. This year’s recipients cover a wide spectrum of sports. But they all have one thing in common — excellence. From Kevin Reynolds becoming the first Canadian men’s figure skater to record a triple-triple combination in competition, to the Coquitlam junior Adanacs determined march to a national lacrosse championship, the performances and results in 2010 could make a lot of locals forget about some small international sports event hosted by the village of Vancouver. The honourees list includes paralympic skier Matt Hallat, teenage golfer Jisoo Keel, wrestler Stephanie Glover, badminton’s Kevin Lim, track and field’s Hodson Harding and Kyle Nielsen, lacrosse’s Challen Rogers and gymnast Laura-Ann Chong. The Adanacs, as well as coach Curt Malawsky, are being recognized for their triumphant win in the Minto Cup championship. In sweeping defending champion Orangeville 2-0, Coquitlam captured the first Minto in organization history. Keel continued her meteoric rise on the provincial, national and international amateur golf scene, winning her first two American Junior Golf tour stops and being selected to Canada’s development squad. Harding was the B.C. champion in the senior boys 400-metre dash, while Nielsen collected silver in javelin at both the NCAA and Canadian championships. Chong finished up her college career with an All-American second team selection for uneven bars and balance beam and was the Pac-10 champ in balance beam. Glover grappled to gold at both the high school provincials and Western Canadians, while Rogers led all scorers and was named tourney MVP in Coquitlam’s successful B.C. midget lacrosse run. Lim would lead his high school badminton team to a B.C. title. The Hall of Fame event, in the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex, includes the induction of athletes Geoff Aunger, Neal Marshall, Leah Pells, the Centennial 1972 boys basketball team, and builders Percy Perry and Stan Shillington. The evening starts at 7 p.m. and is open to the public. Tickets cost $25 and are available at the door.

Gymnast finds club comfort zone Tom Berridge sports@thenownews.com Pick any sport and it’s likely that Laura Kean has tried it, and done it well. The 18-year-old Port Moody Secondary student knocked almost three seconds off her personal best to finish 13th in the senior girls’ 400-metre hurdles at the B.C. high school track and field meet at Swangard Stadium two weeks ago. The teenager has ran marathons, crossing the finish line sixth in the 16-19 women’s division at last year’s Scotiabank Vancouver Half-marathon. She was also crowned the Fraser Valley champion in wrestling at 51 kilograms earlier this year, while last season she skied all the way to the provincial championships in the downhill. When it comes to balance, Kean exemplifies it. But, if you ask her, Kean won’t hesitate to name gymnastics as her one true sport and Burnaby’s Wings Gymnastic Society as her real love. “Wings is the best thing. It’s a tightknit family. They are all my best friends, and it’s like at home. No matter what has happened to me during the day, I can come in and feel at home,” said Kean, who this year reached the highest level of any Wings gymnast before her. At the provincial championships earlier this year, Kean was a multi-medallist in level 4. She topped the floor exercises, finished second on the vault and was third on the uneven bars and in the all-around. What was most impressive about Kean’s gymnastics success was that she accomplished it while maintaining the Wings’ twice-a-week practice schedule. Following the B.C.s, Kean moved up to level 5, the final tier before national standards. Her accomplishments don’t stop at the gym, either. Kean was chosen to address her graduating class as valedictorian. The honour roll student is not exactly sure what she will say, but it’s certain that life lessons learned at Wings will creep in somehow, she said. “Withough gymnastics, I don’t think I would be the valedictorian. There, I learned to be more confident. I learned a lot of life skills in gymnastics,” Kean said. Kean first enrolled at Wings as a shy first-grader but quickly moved up from recreational levels to more competitive despite her fears.

District coaches honour senior ruggers

After a gruelling season of mauls and scrums, the senior coaches of District 43 have selected their Tri-City XV all-star team to cap the senior boys rugby season. The players come from five different high schools and with various degrees of experience, but each player was recognized for their standout contributions. Both tier I squads — the Terry Fox Ravens and Gleneagle Talons — had four players selected. The Ravens finished third in the Fraser Valley and advanced to the playoffs, while Gleneagle placed fifth. The other tier I team, Port Moody, had three players chosen. The Dr. Charles Best Blue Devils and Riverside Rapids competed in tier II and had two each named to the district all-star team. Terry Fox coach Jorge Knizek, who launched the Tri-City XV honour three

years ago, said those selected stood out for a number of reasons. All were prime assets to their respective programs. “For me, the biggest characteristic that I look for when bestowing this honour on to a player is commitment and perseverance,” said Knizek in an e-mail. “Who showed up for training unfailingly? When the weather was bad, who refused to complain? “When the going was tough on the field, who would bear down, worked extra hard and lead by example?” Eight players have built up their rugby resumes with the local United Rugby Club, while five of them had no club affiliations, and two players made their rugby debuts in 2010-11. Among those chosen were field veterans and team captains William Freemantle

of Port Moody and Sterling James of Best, Riverside’s Liam Brett, Fox’s Adam Hartle and Gleneagle’s Santiago Vasquez. Earning the honour as first-year players were Best inside centre Kevan Keeley, who led his team in scoring, and Grade 12 centre Ben Sharpe of Fox. Here’s the full list of stars from 2011, with their respective school teams: Dr. Charles Best – Sterling James, 8th man; Kevan Keeley, inside centre. Gleneagle – Moreno Burak, 8th man; Nima Pakseresht, flanker; Evan Stewart, scrum half; Santiago Vasquez, fly half. Port Moody – Jacob Collins, 8th man; James Dowdell, standoff/wing; William Freemantle, centre. Riverside – Liam Brett, standoff; Michael Hucal, prop. Terry Fox – Jordan Crowe, wing; Adam Hartle, hook; Jean Koorsten, centre; Ben Sharpe, centre.

LOCKED IN: The Terry Fox Ravens senior boys rugby team had four members selected to the Tri-City XV team.

Bandits break out in Langley Matt Demkier and Ryan Mosdell led the way with three goals each, rocketing the Port Moody Bandits to a 17-6 victory over Langley on Tuesday in senior B lacrosse action. Tallying two goals apiece were Jarett Dorman, Charlie Girdler and Kevin Miott, while Rob Brommer, Ian Carlson, Justin Hawksbee and Athen Yuen added singles. The squad’s next test comes Monday, 8 p.m. at the Port Moody Arena against Ladner on Mr. Mikes Night. The first 100 kids will receive a Mikes burger coupon and can sign up to participate in a shootout for prizes.

Putting the ball in the net hasn’t been a problem. Shutting down the opposition also is a readily used element of their repetoire. Now you can add erasing a sizeable deficit to the Coquitlam junior Adanacs’ bag of tricks. The undefeated Adanacs racked up their 13th victory of the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League season on Tuesday, rallying from a four-goal deficit to knock off the New Westminster Salmonbellies at Queen’s Park Arena. Trailing 6-2 midway through the second period, Coquitlam began its comeback, sparked by a pair of Travis Cornwall tallies. In the third, Ryan Johnson’s top corner shot with 12 minutes left cued a six-goal run that ended the game. Cornwall finished with three goals on just four shots, while Wesley Berg and Ben McIntosh scored two each. Rounding out the offence were Tyler Garrison and Patrick Omeara with singles, while Steve Fryer turned aside 29 shots. Coquitlam’s defence, featuring newest addition Myan Adams of Ontario, held the hometown Bellies to just five shots in the third period. The Adanacs played Langley last night (past The NOW’s deadline) and head over to Nanaimo on Sunday.

It’s wasn’t a cruise, but the Crush did it. The Tri-City under-18 field hockey team cranked it up in the provincial club final last week, edging Surrey 1-0 for the championship. Deadlocked 0-0 at the half, Tri-City capitalized on a penalty corner when Mercedes Hamilton drew a perfect ball to Sydney Veljacic,

who hammered home the game’s only goal. In the semifinal, the Crush doubled up on Delta 4-2, getting markers from Veljacic, with two, Robin Goodman and Hamilton. Last year, the squad picked up bronze in the u16 championships.

TRUTH IN ''EMPLOYMENT'' ADVERTISING Postmedia Community Publishing makes every effort to ensure you are responding to a reputable and legitimate job opportunity. If you suspect that an ad to which you have responded is misleading, here are some hints to remember. Legitimate employers do not ask for money as part of the application process; do not send money; do not give any credit card information; or call a 900 number in order to respond to an employment ad. Job opportunity ads are salary based and do not require an investment. If you have responded to an ad which you believe to be misleading please call the Better Business Bureau at 604-682-2711, Monday to Friday, 9am - 3pm or email inquiries@bbbvan.org and they will investigate.

FEATUREDEMPLOYMENT Auxiliary Firefighter Opportunities The City of Coquitlam is one of the fastest growing municipalities in the heart of the Lower Mainland. Our Fire / Rescue department includes a group of auxiliary firefighters whose duties are to supplement the services offered by the full-time career firefighters. Auxiliary firefighters are not responsible for the full range of duties of the career firefighters — therefore, requirements for these roles differ. The auxiliary firefighter experience that an applicant gains, combined with the required/preferred qualifications, could improve his/her chances of full-time employment with the City of Coquitlam and many other fire services. To qualify, you must have the following: • high school graduation • Canadian citizenship or landed immigrant status • valid first aid certifications (WCB Occupational First Aid Level 1 or First Responders – Level 1 or equivalent) • a valid Class 5 driver’s licence with air brake endorsement (air brake endorsement must be obtained before the City can make an offer of employment) • a safe driving record • no convictions for a criminal offence related to the job duties of a firefighter • availability for weekly fire practices (Thursday evenings and the occasional Saturday or Sunday) • the capability to respond to calls during the day and afternoon as well as night calls. You must also live in close proximity to (not more than 10 minutes’ driving distance from) one of these fire stations: • Burke Mountain – 1424 Coast Meridian Road • Mariner Station - 775 Mariner Way. For a complete list of required and preferred qualifications, please refer to our website. Completed applications with all required attachments must be received in our office by 5:00 pm, June 24, 2011 quoting competition #2011-100776. There are no exceptions to this deadline and any incomplete or late applications will not be accepted. Applications may be printed off our website at: www.coquitlam.ca or picked up from the Human Resources Division, City of Coquitlam, 3000 Guildford Way, Coquitlam, BC V3B 7N2.

We thank all applicants for their interest; however, only those selected for an interview will be contacted

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The weeks ahead emphasize home, children, real estate, security, retirement, gardening, soul, nutrition and Mother Nature. It’s a splendid time for a camping vacation. (Better not to leave before June 28. You face many “home concerns” until then.) You will be ending some associations and projects now, perhaps to give new ones room to grow. Although this is usually a sluggish, restful period, you’re kept busy with a lot of communications, paperwork, errands – or wanderlust – now through July. Since your curiosity is up, investigate new income sources/ideas – they’re lucky! Taurus April 20-May 20: Be ambitious Sunday/ Monday – despite a subtle disagreement or heavyhanded legal or educational “pronouncement,” you’re on the path to success (for at least two years, financially, so be optimistic, make plans and go forth these months ahead!). Now to Aug. 2, you might spend too much, or be pushed to spend by government fees. Saving is your friend! Tuesday begins a month of paperwork, short trips, errands, casual acquaintances – you’ll be busy! Love is gentle, easy Monday to Wednesday, but you might doubt it: relax. Retreat, rest Thursday/Friday. Your energy surges Saturday p.m. Gemini May 21-June 20: This week isn’t easy for anyone. You could meet barriers or the need to compromise in finances or sex, especially Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday/Friday. On the plus side, your courage and determination grow now to early August, and so does your optimism. Group affairs grow; you’ll feel befriended. If someone criticized you to a group (secretly) these past few weeks, they prove ineffectual now. The month ahead emphasizes earnings, spending, possessions, sensuality and memory. Sunday’s gentle, mid-week’s ambitious (Wednesday best) and late week brings optimism and popularity!

6020-06

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of quietude and weariness ends Tuesday, as four weeks of high energy, charisma and effectiveness begin. Start important projects. Ask favours, call in markers. Until June 28 (next week) you might face opposition, or be attracted to a deeply alluring person. As usual, love is better than war. In the present week, especially Sunday to Tuesday, watch what you say to others: avoid secrets, gossip, etc. You are just beginning a splendid year-long popularity surge, especially at work. After Tuesday’s confusion/worry, grand inspiration flows Wednesday – follow hunches! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Tuesday begins a month of retreat, quietude and rest. Your career luck will stay high, even rise. You can work in the background to advance your position: you’ll be especially good with government, institutional or head-office contacts. (Though these present some difficulties this Sunday and Tuesday.) Your hopes and optimism will rise also, and despite your need for solitude, you could receive an unusual amount of calls and invitations. So grab your rest when you can. This week isn’t easy, so remain realistic and diplomatic, particularly in legal, travel, sex and financial zones. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Tackle your work Sunday/ Monday. Tuesday begins a month of celebration, flirtation, entertainment, optimism and popularity! You might meet someone very compatible in a group, someone who lifts you to humorous, good-natured heights. The year going tforward favours love – and far travel, learning, culture. Various problems and barriers confront you Sunday to Tuesday – don’t invest nor make any important commitment. This advice applies Thursday also. Inspiration returns Wednesday – and relationships turn from delusion to sweet knowing. Friday’s sexy, Saturday night’s loving, wise.

June 19 - 25, 2011

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: You feel romantic Sunday/ Monday, but events don’t help. Be cautious. Monday begins six weeks of partnership opportunities, possibly of legal hassles. Seek convergence, not dispute. If a partner begins talking about an international move, be wary. Recently, after a five-month respite, the sober side of your life returned to prominence – you can once again re-make your domestic, security, property and child-oriented situation – much more fortunately! (To next June.) Tuesday starts a month of ambition, and dealings with authorities. Reject relationships Thursday, embrace them Friday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Mysteries fade; enlightenment comes Tuesday onward (for a month). Expect widened understanding, gentle love, international contacts, religious, educational and cultural involvements. Your life, for the next three years, will be filled with opportunities (especially financial ones) and, if you’re single, with cheerful, attractive love prospects. Every odd-numbered month, and the 10 days before it, will promote these (relationships and opportunities). E.g., July (seventh month) qualifies, with late June. Minor communication snafus this week. Romance calls Wednesday and Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The (semi?) exciting events of the past few weeks yield now to a deeper, slower thrill, as intimacy, commitment, financial investment or clearing debts, grow more important for the month ahead. (It starts Tuesday morning – but make no commitments before June 28.) Secrets, research, intuition, dreams and hunches accompany this commitment trend. You might fall for someone new, or raise an ongoing romance to a more mature level, now through early August. If you’re the feisty type this phase can bring arguments and fights. Your choice! Domestic intuition strong Wednesday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Finish a project or chore Sunday/Monday. By late Monday onward (to August) a new task enters; and by Tuesday, a month of new horizons, fresh air and relationship excitement begins. This happens every early summer, but it’s more significant this year, as your romantic luck is beginning to climb strongly! If you’re married, the month ahead brings joys through children, vacation, sports and “winning.” (Singles get this, too.) Watch what you say – and legal parameters – midweek. Rest, rejuvenate, strengthen foundations Thursday/ Friday. Romance Saturday p.m. – join a group. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: It hasn’t been a strong summer for you, Aquarius, but the months ahead (12 of them) bring a strong, beneficial rebuilding period, which might be marked by the purchase of a new home, better rental, the entry of a new baby, lifefreeing therapy, or other good foundational moves. One of the first requirements of this new foundation will be work, which confronts you Tuesday onward for a few weeks. Dive into this eagerly (but cautiously before June 28, as the path’s a bit rocky). You could be fooled about money Tuesday, and make a bad bet. But money inspiration’s great Wednesday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Rest deeply Sunday/ Monday – Monday p.m. onward, your energy and charisma rise, and Tuesday morning begins a month of romance, creativity, pleasure and adventure! But Monday also starts six weeks of friction on the home front. Be gentle with parents and kids. Romantic urges outside the home might cause dissention within it. These same six weeks, you might have an opportunity to buy or sell real estate – OK, but strictly avoid moving into a new residence before Aug. 3. (It would “set up” long-term friction.) You might change sources of income. Joy Wednesday: thank God. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
