TI Corp. CEO Mike Proudfoot outlines upcoming traffic pattern changes near the Cape Horn Interchange.

Cape Horn gets a facelift Brent Richter editorial@thenownews.com Tri-Cities residents and commuters should brace themselves for some major changes and construction delays in the coming weeks during the final push for the Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project. The project is entering a “critical juncture” as work crews begin connecting the nearly complete bridge with the various approaches and off ramps in the Cape Horn Interchange in South Coquitlam. “This area is the most complicated, complex and confined section of the entire project,” said Mike Proudfoot, CEO of the province’s Transportation Investment Corp., at a news conference Wednesday. “The work here at the Cape Horn Interchange is truly a megaproject within the megaproject.” Among the big changes due in the coming weeks, Lougheed Highway eastbound will be re-routed over an overpass just past Schoolhouse Street and run along the south side of Highway 1 until it rejoins Lougheed via an underpass before United Boulevard. That change goes into effect on Sept. 16. Moving Lougheed, along with sewers, power lines, gas lines and rail tracks, was needed to make room for a wider Highway 1. “This work is important because the new bridge alone will not solve our congestion problems. The major highway and interchange improvements required on both sides of the bridge are necessary and critical to cutting the travel times,” Proudfoot said. Two days later, the new Port Mann Bridge will see its first use as three eastbound lanes will open into Surrey. On Sept. 19, the bridge will be connected with a new overpass to link westbound Highway 1 traffic directly onto eastbound Lougheed. Over the weekend of Sept. 22 and 23, crews are scheduled  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see EXPECT BRIDGE DELAYS.

Members of the Coquitlam Fire and Rescue Services, including Juraj Peresin, Mike Hardie, Austin Dalgarno, Phil Beedle, acting lieutenant Jeff McMurdo, assistant chief Scott Mackenzie, Jessie Olson, Trevor Demoskoff and captain Tim Gillespie, will celebrate 100 years of service to the community this weekend at an event that’s taking place at Coquitlam’s Spirit Square on Sunday, Sept. 9 from noon until 4 p.m.

Coquitlam Fire & Rescue marks 100th anniversary Celebrations are planned for Sunday at Spirit Square by City Hall Brent Richter editorial@thenownews.com

t’s been 100 years since the first bell rang and Coquitlam firefighters scrambled to save the lives and property of their neighbours. To mark the auspicious centenary, Coquitlam Fire and Rescue is hosting an event at Spirit Square Sunday. Veterans of the department and the public are invited to look back on the last 100 years and see what today’s crews are capable of.

E

meri Pare Sr. was appointed chief of both the police and fire department in 1912, according to the

book Coquitlam: 100 Years. The two services also shared a single horse and were run out of Pare’s home. There are no logs kept from the fire department’s early days, but a few aural histories survive. “I remember granddad once telling me about a phone call he got in the middle of the night in 1914 or so …,” wrote Pare’s grandson Antonio in Coquitlam: 100 years. “The Coquitlam River was flooding and a house located not far from the Boys’ Industrial School on Pitt River Road at Essondale was surrounded by water, its occupants trapped. Granddad arrived on his horse and rescued the family.” In the early days, volunteers were called by ringing the bell in the church

spire. The horse-drawn fire wagon was equipped with only buckets and ladders. By June 1953, Chief Sam Langis and his crew of 15 had 16,000 residents to protect using one truck they mostly built themselves. Still, they boasted they were able to save $135,000 worth of property from destruction that year. It was around that time Coquitlam council first considered switching from a volunteer force to a professional department. When the council of the day first looked to hire full-time firefighters, they opted to ignore their experienced volunteers and sought educated firefighters with the “IQ of a Philadelphia lawyer,”  CONTINUED ON PAGE 3, see CREWS.

Strike affects liquor store, prison

In THE NOW News:

Friday, September 7, 2012

BCGEU workers walk off the job for a day to raise public awareness of their concerns Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

I

t was meant to be a show of solidarity and a message to the provincial government to return to bargaining, as BC Government and Service Employees’ Union (BCGEU) workers in the Tri-Cities joined thousands of others for a one-day strike. Pickets were set up at various sites around the Tri-Cities, including BC Liquor Stores, which were closed for the day, and the North Fraser Pretrial Centre in Port Coquitlam. The issues being contested were as varied as the workers who fall under the BCGEU umbrella. At the Port Coquitlam Signature Liquor Store in Westwood Centre, roughly 40 employees walked the picket lines for the day. Wearing yellow BCGEU “On Strike” signs, the employees waved as drivers honked in support along Lougheed Highway. Darla Little has worked with the branch for 15 years and is the store’s shop steward. She suggested the potential sell-off of the liquor distribution system is the biggest issue for striking workers at the store. Earlier this year, the province announced it had plans to sell its liquor distribution warehouses and distribution services to the private sector.

Jeremy Deutsch/NOW

Striking workers at the Signature Liquor Store in PoCo wave to traffic. Little argued the delivery of booze would be run by one private company, which would ultimately drive up the cost of alcohol. She said BCGEU employees are also asking for a fair wage increase, noting the union accepted zero increases in the last contracts, as asked for by the province. Little said workers just want an increase that would keep pace with prior contracts. “We don’t want to fall further

behind,” she said, adding that the PoCo store generates about $25 million a year in sales, and is one of the biggest in the system. There were also more than a dozen prison workers on the picket line at the pretrial centre. While the union representing jail guards didn’t want its members outside the centre to speak to media on the record, one guard, who did not want his name used, did discuss the issues inside the prison with The

NOW. The guard, who has been at the prison for more than a decade, said the conditions inside have deteriorated over the years, noting an increase in the number staff assaults and overcrowding. He said some of the assaults include feces and urine being thrown at guards, adding he suffered a concussion while breaking up a fight between inmates. He said part of the problem is the inmate to guard ratio, which started at 20:1, and has now jumped to 60:1. The union has been calling on the province to either add more guards to bring down the ratio or implement rotational lockups, which essentially limit the number of inmates out in a unit at one time. The prison was originally built for 300 inmates, but often houses 550 to 600. Despite the problems, the guard maintained morale is high among staff. “We look out for each other,” he said. Conditions at the jail have come under increased attention after two inmates died at the centre this year in separate incidents. In all, more than 27,000 government employees walked off the job Wednesday, marking it one of the largest one-day strikes in years. By Thursday, workers across the province were back on the job. twitter.com/jercoquitlamnow

Crews now deal with more chemicals  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

Langis recalled in Coquitlam: 100 Years. “Well, gosh, it takes guts to fight a fire, not brains and eventually, council decided to hire some of the volunteers, but only after they had taken an IQ test.” While guts and hoses may have cut it in Langis’ day, things have changed, says Chief Tony Delmonico, particularly the types of situations firefighters are called to and the technology they have to deal with them. Where it used to be mostly fires, Coquitlam Fire & Rescue is now called on for floods, medical emergencies, hazardous materials situations, high angle and water rescues and essentially everything else where there is risk, Delmonico said. Luckily, the city has provided the department with some of the best equipment and training available in all of North America, he added. While technology has helped protect

the health and safety of firefighters, the risk associated with the job has kept pace, said assistant chief Scott MacKenzie. “Back in the days, they were fighting wood fires. Now our personal protective equipment is safer but we’re fighting more dangerous fires — chemicals and that kind of stuff,” he said. As for the next 100 years, Delmonico said they will probably look like the last 100: constant evolution to meet residents’ needs. “Our city today is in excess of 130,000 people and we’ve got 35 highrises and we’ve got 20 to 30 more coming in a number of years,” he said. “We have to adapt to that as a fire service.” • Sunday’s celebrations run from noon till 4 p.m. at Spirit Square (next to City Hall at 3000 Guildford Way) and will feature a ceremonial presentation from the Coquitlam Fire & Rescue honour guard, the Vancouver

No charges expected in motel altercation Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com It doesn’t appear any charges will come from an altercation at a Burquitlam motel earlier this week that ended up shattering a window in one of the rooms. Coquitlam Mounties were called to the Sleepy Lodge

Motel on Clarke Road around midnight Wednesday on a report of a disturbance. When police arrived, they found two people inside a room who had just fought. Investigators aren’t saying much about the incident, other than the two people involved knew each other, there were no injuries and charges won’t likely be

brought forward. For several hours on Wednesday, the room was closed to police tape, while shattered glass was on the ground from a broken window. A hotel employee told The NOW he heard there was a fight between a couple who had been living in the suite for about 10 days.

Expect bridge delays  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

to finish a new overpass linking westbound Lougheed to eastbound Highway 1. The “engineering marvel” will result in choked off bridge traffic for drivers while work is done. The bridge will be reduced to one lane in either direction for portions of the weekend and the majority of the Cape Horn Interchange will be shut down and traffic detoured to the Brunette Interchange. The bridge will again be cut down to single lanes in either direction on Sept 29 and 30 while workers demolish the

old onramp. “We’re asking drivers to avoid the highway and the bridge during these periods and choose alternate routes,” Proudfoot said. The new bridge is expected to have eight lanes open for traffic on schedule in December, with two more lanes to follow in 2013. The remainder of the work to clean up the rat’s nest that has become of South Coquitlam’s roads will be completed throughout the 2013 construction season, Proudfoot said. “We know there is some inconvenience and we apolo-

gize for that but we’re asking everyone to just hang in there for a few more months,” he said. “A faster Port Mann Bridge is coming.”

Jeremy Deutsch/NOW

A window was smashed at the Sleepy Lodge Motel on Clarke Road Wednesday morning, and police tape and cars were visible from the street. What appeared to be blood was visible on the curtain near the smashed window, but police do not expect to lay charges after what they say was an altercation between two people.

MILD BRAIN INJURY IS TRAUMATIC

David, 19, was broad-sided by another vehicle which drove through a red light. He struck the left side of his head against the windshield and his knee against the dash, suffering a mild whiplash, cuts and bruising about the left side of his face and a badly bruised ear drum, in addition to a cut and bruised knee. While he didn’t lose consciousness, he probably suffered a concussion in which his awareness was altered. He was treated in the emergency room and released later that night. David recovered from his physical injuries within six months after the accident. But he drank more, forgot about his hockey practices, slept more during the day, needed to be reminded what to do at work, and was generally difficult to get along with. Based on the evidence – including medical witnesses – the BC Supreme Court concluded that David had suffered mild traumatic brain injury or MTBI, and he was compensated accordingly. A mild traumatic brain injury is often the least understood or accepted consequence of a car crash or other accident. Yet it can be devastating for the victim. You can appear normal, but may experience a range of symptoms including cognitive changes (memory loss, an inability to concentrate and/or difficulty solving problems), personality changes (mood swings, frustration, irritability and/or anger), and physical effects (fatigue, sleep disturbance, dizziness and/or headaches). MTBI can affect your job, your marriage, relationships with friends and family, and lead to depression. With a brain injury, you usually become unconscious for a few minutes or more immediately after the accident – but not always. An injury with little or no loss of consciousness can also cause brain damage. And MTBI can occur in the absence of a blow to the head, i.e., a whiplash type of movement can also cause an injury to the brain. Various tests are used to diagnose a brain injury.

Neurological examinations may include a CT, MRI, PET or SPECT scans, EEG and “brain mapping.” But neurological exams don’t always pick up the injury. As a result, MTBI can go undiagnosed. Neuropsychological testing – which evaluates how the injury has affected your learning, organizational skills and cognitive thinking – is therefore another useful diagnostic tool. This involves taking a case history, a review of hospital records, interviews with you and family members, employers and co-workers, and the administration of a battery of cognitive and other tests. (Insurers are often reluctant to fund this kind of testing as it is very expensive.) In time, many people recover fully from a mild traumatic brain injury. But some continue to have permanent problems. It’s important to seek legal advice as soon after the accident as possible in suspected cases of MTBI. Crucial evidence can otherwise be lost if a thorough investigation isn’t done during this time. Your lawyer will be aware of the latest medical knowledge relating to brain injuries, be up-to-date on the medical tests used to diagnose MTBI, and know the experts to refer you to for proper diagnosis and rehabilitation. He will advise you about your rights to compensation, and with the reports and evidence (including an assessment of any economic losses such as past or future loss of income) in hand, will advocate on your behalf for a fair settlement to your claim.

Cat attacked by four raccoons Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Jake is a gentle giant. The nine-year-old cat has no interest in messing with any other animals near his Jarvis Street home in Coquitlam. But on Wednesday night, Jake was in the fight of his life. He was out in the backyard when four raccoons attacked him, dragging him across the grass toward the driveway. Rona Wilkman, Jake’s owner, heard the commotion from the kitchen just a few feet away. She said the family tried to scare away the raccoons, but they weren’t budging. The raccoons had the cat pinned down.

Jeremy Deutsch/NOW

Rona Wilkman, left, and her daughter Erin comfort their cat Jake, who was attacked by raccoons. It took Wilkman’s partner to kick one of the animals away before they finally let go of Jake, scurrying into the

dark of night. “They were quite aggressive,” she told The NOW. Fortunately, after a trip to

the vet, Jake is OK. He lost a bit of fur, had a few scratches and was still a little more than freaked out the following day. Wilkman, who has lived at the home for six months, said she’s well aware raccoons are in the neighbourhood, but was surprised by the group’s viciousness and behaviour. “If we hadn’t have been there, I don’t think we would have had a cat,” she said. The incident has Wilkman warning other small pet owners in her neighbourhood that the raccoons can attack and be dangerous. As for Jake, his outdoor days are likely done for a while. “We don’t want him outside right now,” Wilkman said. twitter.com/ jercoquitlamnow

Opinion

Pipeline opposition is at 35% Despite what one would tend to gather from all of the recent noise and hoopla generated by the antipipeline faction in B.C., recent polls have shown that only about 35 per cent of British Columbians are dead set against oil pipelines. The other twothirds (the silent majority of British Columbians) want to know more before making up their minds. That’s exactly the same position Premier Christy Clark and the BC Liberal To The government have taken on proposed oil pipelines, including the Northern Gateway pipeline project currently undergoing a federal environmental review. Right from the start, Premier Clark and the BC Liberals have made it clear that hearing all the facts, and considering all

the potential benefits and risks, before passing judgment on any project is an essential part of the process. Premier Clark has also made it very clear (and rightfully so) that tough environmental standards would have to be achieved by any oil pipeline project and that meaningful engagement with the affected First Nations communities would need to be clearly demonstrated. Premier Clark’s position on oil pipelines shows that it’s not just about the Editor money. It’s about meeting key environmental and social objectives which are just as important to the province as meeting key economic and fiscal objectives. Massimo Mandarino Vancouver

Our View

This ship is sinking

W

e can officially anoint Fort LangleyAldergrove MLA Rich Coleman the most optimistic man in B.C. politics. Coleman announced this week that he has a “fire in the belly” for the coming election, and he’ll be running against the NDP come hell or high water. Speaking of high water, each day brings a new wave to break against the embattled government of Premier Christy Clark. Kevin Falcon, John Les, Blair Lekstrom, George Abbott, Mary McNeil, Joan McIntyre, Rob Howard. Since last week, all of those Liberal MLAs, several of them senior current or former cabinet ministers, have announced they will not be running come spring. It leaves Coleman part of a dwindling crowd of senior Liberal veterans. Coleman, Mike de Jong and Shirley Bond seem to be among the last long-serving Liberals who have held major portfolios. It’s hard to blame those getting out now. This is British Columbia, after all, where we don’t just change governments, we chase them from office, pitchforks and torches an optional extra. Just ask Bill Vander Zalm or Glen Clark. Considering the latest polls, showing the NDP and opposition leader Adrian Dix well above Clark and her dwindling Liberal core, it seems we may very well be heading for a repeat of 2001, or of 1991. But again, we have to say that this is British Columbia. Nothing in politics is predictable west of the Rockies. Coleman may be counting on the simmering discontent that seems to be bubbling within the upstart B.C. Conservative Party. Or he may simply believe the NDP will do what they have so often done on both national and provincial stages, and snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Or he may feel he has one of the last safe Liberal seats in B.C., and someone has to pick up the pieces after next spring’s election blowout.

Perspective

Public-sector workers need a fair deal

Editor’s note: Union leaders Darryl Walker, Scott McCannell and David Black submitted this editorial in advance of the BCGEU strike on Wednesday (see story on Page 3).

the front lines of public service falling further behind, according to a recent Environics survey. Seventy-four per cent said public sector workers should at least get a cost of living increase without having to take cuts elsewhere. A majority also supports our one-day strike. We do not want to increase your taxes. Instead, the BCGEU made several proposals that would generate additional revenue for the government. Of 197 public liquor stores, 175 are closed on Sundays. Opening them seven days a week would generate up to $100 million annually. Respected economist Don Drummond examined Ontario’s debt and recommended aggressively expanding the number of public liquor stores to generate more government revenue. Assigning additional duties to the B.C. Sheriff Services would save money and generate revenue. In Alberta, sheriffs handle traffic duties alongside the RCMP. The successful program was doubled in size in the first year, and spawned $111 million in new government revenue in 2009-10, half of which was returned to general revenue. Expanded sheriff duties would also reduce health-care costs by improving road safety, alleviating delays in courts and freeing up police to focus on the Criminal Code. COPE 378 has suggested savings ICBC will gain by implementing new technologies and work processes should be returned to its workers as improvements to wages and benefits. The time for a fair deal for public sector workers is now. Darryl Walker is BCGEU president, Scott McCannell is PEA executive director, and David Black is president of COPE Local 378.

Accountability and integrity replaced by arrogance and irresponsibility Thank you, Rich Coleman, for giving me this opportunity for a little sarcasm. On Tuesday, Mr. Coleman announced he will be running for re-election, stating: “I’ve still got the fire in the belly.” This isn’t the only thing he has in the belly. Last year, at the expense of the taxpayers, his Energy and Mines ministry managed to fill its belly with $3,400 worth of goodies from coffee shops, $436 worth of chocolates and $30 at a vitamin store. Quite an eclectic collection, I do say. Mr. Coleman’s irresponsibility when it comes to spending our money is just the tip of the iceberg. Each and every one of our MLAs seems immune to fiscal restraint, and it’s getting a little tiresome watching our politicians acting like little kids in a candy store when it comes to their spending habits. B.C. Auditor General John Doyle delivered a scathing report about six weeks ago that said an all-party committee of B.C. MLAs (Liberal and NDP) that is responsible for overseeing spending at the legislature was not producing any useful financial statements or maintaining even the most basic accounting records.

This total lack of ethical behaviour is a direct reflection of the leadership qualities, or lack thereof, of both Christy Clark and Adrian Dix. If they can’t control spending within their own parties, how can we trust them to run the province? Sadly, it seems accountability and integrity, the two mainstays of good government, have been replaced by arrogance and irresponsibility. These are trying times for the average British Columbian, pinching pennies and making sacrifices just To The to provide the bare necessities for our families. When many of us consider a night out to a restaurant and movie a luxury — or face the sad reality that the holiday we dream of taking to Europe, Hawaii or some Caribbean island is for a “someday” that many of us know deep down inside may never come — we have to watch in utter disgust as politicians spend our money frivolously and extravagantly on non-essentials. On a final note, it seems some of the $475,000 the premier’s office ran up on its Visa bill included the downloading of iTunes. Given the fact that every day another Liberal MLA seems to be jumping ship by not seeking re-election, I wonder if one of the songs they have downloaded is

Federal government not doing enough to honour veterans In reference to the recent and many letters regarding acknowledging the Korean War vets and the issue with the federal government not looking into issuing a stamp in recognition, if I may add, it does Editor not seem to matter what party is in power at the federal level — be it the Conservatives or the Liberals — remembering the vets is a sideline. Do all provinces within Canada celebrate Remembrance Day as a statutory holiday on Nov. 11? No. Why not? When will this change? Ever? I deem not. Might I single out Quebec, my birth province? The federal government is nothing more than one that seeks to play the middle field — don’t antagonize anyone for fear of losing votes — that is all it is. Instead of putting its foot down and making a decree that on Nov. 11 every province will have a Remembrance Day statutory holiday, they allow that day to go by as any other normal day. And with the Parti Québécois victory in Quebec, once they are

This is the best country on Earth to live in, and we are allowing it to fester — and we can do nothing, absolutely nothing, to change that. Why? Because whether you vote Liberal or Conservative or any other party, nothing will change. It’s sad. My hat goes off to the Korean War vets. My hat goes off to all the vets who served in our services in all the wars. My Dad served in the RCAF in the Second World War — if he were still around, I wonder if he would bow his head in disgust.

Hazmat crews called after powder found Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com What started out as a hazardous materials situation turned out to be nothing more than a substance that causes cavities in teeth. Port Coquitlam fire crews, a hazmat team and Coquitlam Mounties were called to the PoCo bus loop on Kingsway Avenue around 11 p.m. Wednesday after a suspicious bag containing white powder was found on a bus by a cleaning crew. The fire department started its hazardous materials protocol, assuming a couple of employees at the depot had been exposed to a dangerous substance. It was determined the powder was just sugar. “It may have been put there

to look that way, as a prank, but it ended up turning out to be nothing,” said PoCo fire chief Nick Delmonico. “So it was a lot of emergency personnel going for either a joke or a prank.” Though RCMP did attend the scene, there is no ongoing investigation into the incident. It’s not the first time this year hazmat crews in the TriCities have been called after someone spotted a white substance on a transit bus. In May, the bus loop at Coquitlam Centre was shut down for hours after a bus driver and two passengers reported feeling ill and a white substance was discovered on the bus. The powder also turned out not to be hazardous, but several passengers were quarantined as a precaution.

Insurance for the seasonal traveller. The season is turning, the sun is lower in the sky and leaves are showing their fall colours. It’s the time of year when people are finalizing their plans for lengthy trips to scenic U.S. destinations to escape the Canadian winter. While considering destinations, accommodations, transportation and activities for long stays, travellers are no-doubt researching travel insurance too. The cost of medical care in the U.S. can be pricey, and a single misadventure could spell the end of a much anticipated trip. The Canadian government recommends that travellers purchase travel insurance when leaving the country. Medical care outside of Canada is extremely expensive and provincial health care may not cover all of your medical expenses incurred out of the province. When researching travel insurance, there are three important things for people to consider: What is your health status? Depending upon your age, some policies might require you to complete a health questionnaire. This needs to be answered accurately to ensure you have the correct coverage. If necessary, purchase pre-existing condition coverage so that you’re covered in the event you have a claim relating to a pre-existing condition. What is your trip duration? For some, one lengthy trip of 30 to

TRAVEL INSURANCE WITH

ZLATA STUMP 90 days may be all that is planned. However, if you are planning multiple trips, it may be more economical to purchase an annual multi-trip plan. Do you require Trip Cancellation or Interruption coverage? Of course, it is disappointing to have to cancel a trip for any reason, from a missed connection to an unexpected illness. Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption Insurance ensures that you won’t suffer the financial burdens typically associated with such events. But note that there is a difference between the two coverages: Trip Cancellation insures you if your travel plans are cancelled prior to departure, while Trip Interruption coverage insures you if your trip is disrupted after it has already begun.

Tri-Cities residents are once again invited to lace up their hiking shoes and take the Coquitlam Crunch Challenge, a fundraiser aimed at creating a more welcoming society. With a suggested donation of $20 for adults and $10 for youth, participants can join the five-kilometre challenge starting from the parking lot of the Eagle Ridge lacrosse box on Guildford Way. Those with a little more gusto can join organizer Alex Bell on the Make it or Break it Challenge, which dares hikers to climb the crunch 10 times in 12 hours, starting at 6:30 a.m. “So far, I hold the record so this year, I’m hoping somebody can take that record away from me,” Bell said. The goal is to raise $10,000, which will be seed money for a community grant fund available to anyone wanting to run an event or program that promotes awareness and inclusion of diversity groups. That could include refugees or immigrants, and people of different faiths, sexual orientations, mental or physical abilities, income statuses, ages or ethnicities.

Writers’ groups welcome members Two writing groups, offered by the City of Port Moody’s recreation department, will start up again this month. Groups begin on Monday, Sept. 17 (7 to 9 p.m.) and Thursday, Sept. 20 (9:30 a.m. to noon). Both run until early December. The groups cost between $90 and $110 per semester. According to a press release from the city, five members of the groups had books published within a month of each other a couple of summers ago. Writers have been gathering in the groups once a week for the last 35 years for constructive critique of their work, discussions about the craft of writing and how to get published, and for support from their own tribe. Some members have been attending for more than 25 years. The groups welcome fiction and non-fiction writers and poets, believing that each brings insights to the others. Emerging as well as experienced writers are especially welcomed. Participants include a professional freelance editor and several published authors who guide newcomers and provide informal coaching towards publication. The facilitators, Eileen Kernaghan (Thursdays) and Julie H. Ferguson (Mondays) are commercially published authors in fiction and nonfiction, respectively. If you’re a writer who is serious about improving your work, register by calling the Kyle Centre and asking for the Monday or Thursday “creative writing” group. If you have questions, contact Julie at info@beaconlit.com.

or some, the walls beyond the Masjid Al-Hidayah Islamic Centre and mosque in Port Coquitlam are a bit of a mystery. But members of the centre are hoping an open house planned for Sunday (Sept. 9) will help break down those barriers. The public is being invited out to the Masjid Al-Hidayah to tour the centre, try a little food and learn about the culture and religion of Islam. This year’s open house theme is the role of women in Islam, the misconceptions and their status in the religion. It’s an issue Miriam Rahimi, the event co-ordinator, knows well.

presentation. He expects roughly 300 to 500 people to walk through the doors of the centre during the open house. As for the larger event, both Bahr and Rahimi see the open house as a way to reach out to the greater TriCities community. “We’re part of the Canadian Mosaic,” Bahr said. “As part of the Canadian society, we’d like to build bridges.” Rahimi, meanwhile, said some people outside of the religion are shy and unsure whether they’re welcome at the centre. “The whole essence of our religion is to bring people together, to unite,” she said. The open house will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the centre, located at 2626 Kingsway Ave.

MOTORING

The 2012 Volkswagen Beetle is the best ever to make it easier on gas. Its performance is also good, particularly at low engine speeds and compares well with any base engine in the compact car class. The Tiptronic automatic is another piece of tried and tested VW machinery.

David Chao editorial@thenownews.com

T

he Beetle has always been an iconic vehicle, but this is the first Beetle that we’ve really liked or would even dream of buying. You can go back (they date back to 1938) as far as you like, Herbie has never been on my “want to own” list. The original was a noisy, gutless creature with an air cooled engine that always sounded like it was about to expire, yet somehow kept on going, and going. The new Beetle was a Rabbit in disguise, only it cost more, didn’t perform as well and was nowhere near as practical. Which brings us to the 2012 VW Beetle, the best Bug of them all (hey, that’s also a good name). The cute bubble car has been replaced with a sporty creation that’s a modern take on the original, similar to what BMW did with the Mini. Stretched wider and longer and with a lower roofline, this Beetle has a crouched, ready-to-bolt-out-of-the-gate posture. Two engines are initially available, and VW’s venerable 2.5-litre five-cylinder is the base power provider. This engine can generate 170 horsepower and 177 poundfeet of torque and is mated to either a five-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. A step up the power ladder is a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pumps out 200 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Its driveline comes with an electronically controlled limited-slip differential and either a six-speed manual or a six-speed DSG dual-clutch transmission. A TDI (diesel) may also be added to the line. The three Beetle trim lines are Comfortline, Highline and Sportline, which has the highoutput 2.0-litre engine.

In manual mode, however, there’s no indication of the engaged gear showing on the instrument panel, which is a little odd. Steering is on the light side, but has a precise feel and very good direction stability, typical of most VW models.

Also commendable are the Beetle’s large outsize side mirrors.

The Score

The 2012 Volkswagen Beetle is the best Beetle … ever!

The 2012 VW Beetle retails for $21,975 to $29,025. The well-equipped base Comfortline trim ($21,975) comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, heated cloth seats, 50/50 splitfolding rear seats, keyless entry, power windows, threespoke leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control and even heated washer nozzles and mirrors. Highline ($24,225) puts on 17-inch alloy wheels and adds ambient lighting, chrome interior accents, eight-way driver and six-way passenger manually adjustable cloth sport seats, fog lights, pushbutton ignition and a multifunction steering wheel. Even bigger 18-inch alloy wheels come with Sportline ($29,025) which also includes leather seats, alloy sport pedals, red brake calipers, dual exhaust, black exterior accents, black mirrors, a multilink rear sport suspension and a rear spoiler.

you’ve got rear passengers, there’s a top-of-seatback release latch on the front seat, which folds and slides forward out of way in one slick movement. Driver comfort features include a tilt and telescopic steering wheel, and manual settings for seat include height, which makes the Beetle very suited to the taller than average. Headroom for rear occupants is also very good, but legroom is limited. Our Beetle came with the 2.5-litre engine, which is also available in Golf and Jetta models. It’s a good engine that’s been around for a long time and was recently updated

Naturalists host pipeline speaker The Burke Mountain Naturalists will feature a guest speaker on the topic “Tankers and Burrard Inlet” at their meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 11. Unlike the Enbridge pipeline in Northern B.C., the proposed twinning of the Kinder Morgan pipeline to carry diluted bitumen from Alberta to a coastal terminus in Burnaby has received little attention, according to a press release from the group. The expansion means a huge jump in the number and size of tankers on Burrard Inlet and in the Strait of Georgia, and the Georgia

Strait Alliance is encouraging local residents to get informed about this proposal. The group’s executive director, Christianne Wilhelmson, will present a slide show on this issue at the Burke Mountain Naturalists’ meeting. The Georgia Strait Alliance is concerned about potential spills of heavy tar-like bitumen, and the group suggests communities should focus not on pipeline expansion but on transitioning to new sustainable sources of energy. At the same meeting, Burke Mountain Naturalists member

Kiyoshi Takahashi will give a short slide presentation on the successful barn owl nest he monitored via video. The meeting is free and open to the public. It starts at 7:30 p.m. in the

Because diabetes was the “norm” it was also OK to take the pressure off by joking about it.

Recycle electronic toys through new program A new program allows B.C. residents to recycle used or broken electronic toys at more than 50 drop-off locations throughout the province. The Electronic Toy Recycling program will target the eventual diversion of approximately two million electronic toys previously destined for the landfill, helping to reduce pollution, save energy and protect the environment, according to a press release. The program accepts thousands of electronic toys designed for children, ranging in size from small consumer electronic toy giveaways to large ride-on battery powered toys. Examples of accepted electronic toys are: • Plush textile toys with electronics powered by batteries or plugs

• Hard plastic toys with electronics powered by batteries or plugs • Remote control vehicles with electronics powered by batteries or plugs • Ride-on vehicles with electronics powered by batteries or plugs Advanced gaming devices, both handhelds and consoles that are designed to be used with televisions and computers, will be managed by the Electronic Products Recycling Association (EPRA BC). Visit www.return-it.ca/electronics for more information on recycling advanced gaming devices.

It also took the camp experience to give him a sense of belonging to a community of other kids and families, which has contributed to his positive state of health as an adult. As his mom says, “Camp is such a gift.” • Tri-Cities resident Kathy Lynn is a professional speaker and author of Who’s In Charge Anyway? and But Nobody Told Me I’d Ever Have to Leave Home.

Express forwards Brady Shaw, in blue, and Alexander Kerfoot, in orange, are put through the paces at Wednesday’s practice in Coquitlam. Along with linemate John Siemer, the trio is expected to be the team’s offensive catalyst for the new season, which begins today (Friday) with the B.C. Hockey League’s Showcase Event in Chilliwack. Coquitlam plays its home opener on Friday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m., when the team plays host to Langley. Lisa King/NOW

Express open season with some Southern flair Stories by John Kurucz sports@thenownews.com

I

t’s no secret that hockey has become more of a global game in recent decades, and one look at the nucleus of this year’s edition of the Coquitlam Express suggests the club will lean on our neighbours to the south in particular. Four of the team’s core players have ties to the U.S., including starting netminder Cole Huggins, returning offensive threats John Siemer and Brady Shaw, and Minnesota import Sam Majka. Having posted a 2-2-2 record in the preseason, they get at it in earnest today (Friday), with the onset of the B.C. Hockey League’s Showcase Event in Chilliwack. “I have an American flag on my helmet, so I do promote where I’m from,” said Siemer, a California native who put up 28 goals in his rookie campaign last season. “If other guys want to chirp me about it, it just fires me up even more.” Huggins acknowledges that national kinship and embraces the fact that he is likely going to be the lone U.S.-born starter in the league this season. “It doesn’t come up too much, but there’s a bit of ribbing there from time to time,” he said. “It’s pretty cool that we have that amount of U.S. talent on the team.” Hometowns aside, Huggins’ storyline this season is more so about redemption than heritage. The Colorado-born netminder

went from a backup role in Langley two years ago to posting a 21-6-2 record last season. This season, he is the undisputed No. 1 and will be backed up by Coquitlam native Daniel Urbani, who spent last year with the Northeast Chiefs of the B.C. Major Midget League. Gone from last year is Khaleed Devji, who recently accepted a scholarship to Salem State University. “With Cole’s experience in the league and based on what he did last year, I think he’s earned that right to start with the ball,” said Express coach and general manager Jon Calvano. “We have the utmost confidence in him and we’re very confident in Dan Urbani; he showed great poise in the exhibition season.” The key losses from last year’s club include captain and scoring leader Alex Petan and puck-moving defencemen Clinton Atkinson, who finished fifth in team scoring last year with 59 points in 60 games, and Zach Hodder, who accumulated 33 points in 43 contests last season. The club does, however, retain the bulk of its major point getters from last season, with returning vets Alexander Kerfoot, Siemer, Shaw, Justin Georgeson, Malcolm McKinney and newlyminted team captain Mitch Nardi expected to pick up the slack. “I don’t really like to set individual goals based on numbers,” said Kerfoot, who lit the league up with 69 points in 51 games during his rookie season. “I’m going to try my best on every shift, in every game. If I’m playing well, the points will come.” The new faces on the offensive side of the puck include Zachary Pryzbek and Majka, while the backend will get a boost

from Ontario native Callum Hofford, who bagged 19 goals and 42 assists over 64 games while playing out of Toronto’s Hill Academy. Prospects coming from the major midget ranks include league scoring leader Adam Rockwood and Jace Hennig, who had a cup of coffee with the junior A team last season and put up 12 points in 28 games. “It’s all about opportunity for them,” Calvano said. “Some guys come up and do exceptionally well, but with some other guys coming up from major midget, they’re still trying to find their way. It all depends on the player and how they adapt, and how quickly they’re able to adapt.” The team enters today’s season-opener in relatively good health, with the exception of Rockwood. The 17-year-old Coquitlam native had his jaw broken in two places after being hit from behind in a recent pre-season game, and it’s expected that he’ll miss the first two months of the regular season. Despite that hiccup, expectations remain high after a season that saw the Express finish fourth in the conference with a 3619-3-2 record. “Like everyone else, our goal is to win a national championship,” Calvano said. “We want to be somewhere between 30 and 35 wins. We’re just trying to build and keep getting better.” The Express take on Victoria today (Friday) at 4 p.m. before facing off against Cowichan on Sunday at 2 p.m. The team’s home opener goes Friday, Sept. 14 at 7 p.m., when the Express host Langley.

PoCo, Coquitlam field lax players bag national championship

It’s about as dominant of a performance that a coach — or a province — could ask for. With a roster that featured almost half of its players from PoCo or Coquitlam, Team B.C. steamrolled the competition at last weekend’s under-16 Canadian Field Lacrosse Championships in Oshawa, a win culminated by a 14-8 victory over Team Ontario in

Sunday’s final. The game started off as a decidedly seesaw affair, with both teams vying for possession. But once PoCo’s Gordon Phillips was handed faceoff duties, the game — both in terms of possession and the score — belonged to B.C. “That really changed the tide,” said Derek Milani, the team’s PoCo-based assistant coach.

“We started winning the faceoffs and got the possession game back into our favour. After that we were more athletic than them, and much deeper than them down the middle.” Sunday’s final seemed to be the only game Team B.C. collectively broke a sweat in, as the national champs destroyed all comers by posting wins over Iroquois Nation (17-3);

Nova Scotia (26-0); Manitoba (21-2) and Team Alberta (17-2). The team included Coquitlam residents Mackenzie Dailly, Dylan Chand, Josh Kemp and Andrew Gallant. Team B.C.’s PoCo contingent consisted of Mitchel Milani, Jake Bye, Sam De Groot, Chase Malcolm, Brodie Gillespie and Phillips.

Walter takes aim at cross country crown

In a year chalked full of personal bests, Coquitlam’s Sandra Walter is looking to cap off her cycling season by scaling the summit — literally. The 32-year-old cross country mountain bike racer will compete in this Saturday’s Union Cycliste Internationale’s World Championships in Saalfelden, Austria, and is one of only five Canadians to make the trek across the pond. Once in the idyllic central European town, Walter will be tasked with traversing a 4.6-kilometre course that contains 180 metres of vertical gain per lap. Roots, drops, rocks and other technical speed bumps will be thrown her way over the course of the races, which typically last up to two hours. “The race will be very challenging, both physically, technically, and mentally,” Walter said in an e-mail to The NOW. “The World Championships are very special, because they are one of the few races in which we represent our country and wear the Maple Leaf jersey.”

Prior to this weekend’s marquee event, Walter had put up six individual victories this season alone, including two Canada Cup wins and the overall national series title. On top of those victories, Walter and her Xprezo-Borsao Factory teammate Jean Ann Berkenpas rode to a first-place finish over seven days at the TransRockies Challenge mountain bike stage race held earlier this summer. She also took fifth at the Canadian XCO Mountain Bike Championships in early June, as well as a career-best 16th place in the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup event two weeks later. Add it all up, and 2012 represents the most accomplished season in Walter’s 15 years in competition. “I have been achieving personal bests throughout my entire 2012 season,” she said. “With that kind of consistency, I can only believe my race on Saturday will be no exception.”

The awards were given to those athletes, both male and female, who competed in either the fall 2011 and/or summer 2012 BMS Elite Touring Program while achieving an academic average of 80 per cent or higher for the 20112012 school year. The program’s players span the elementary, middle and high school ranks.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This week and next emphasize short trips, errands, emails, media, communications, reports and paperwork – a new project or acquaintance might arrive Friday/Saturday. Earlier, your energy and charisma rise strongly Sunday to Tuesday – get things done, charge into important projects, impress people! Tuesday, you have a choice: passively deflate, or conquer a longstanding home or relationship problem. (Be careful with relationships Sunday night: either love blooms, or enmity explodes.) Chase money midweek. Buy high tech, not machinery. Career’s blessed, romance is a dud Wednesday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The focus is on money – buying/selling, earnings. Your job is changing, slowly, unstoppably, over this entire decade. That said, you might be in position to ask for a pay raise now or soon. (Try this Friday.) Retreat, lie low and rest Sunday to Tuesday – protect your health and reputation. Your energy and charisma surge upward Wednesday/Thursday. Your friendly, romantic or adventurous impulses might lead to friction (on the home front?) or even a fight, but they also trigger love, great friendship or simple happiness. Your creative, inventive idea these two days are superb. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your wishes and social life have run into a quiet, subtle brick wall for the last two to three years. This has taught you a lot (or puzzled you no end) and you still have long-term adjustments in attitude to make, but Oct. 5 will dissolve this wall to a large degree – you’re going to make more friends, soon. Meanwhile, use the gentle wisdom of this week (and Sunday-Tuesday’s events) to study why the “dry spell” happened. (Hint: romance, and a major change in type of friend, are involved.) Lie low, deal with government, charities midweek. Your energy, magnetism soar Friday/Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The main accent lies on work, machinery, health – tackle chores, buy machinery, especially Friday/Saturday, when prices might be low. However, avoid purchases – of machines and real estate – Sunday afternoon to Tuesday afternoon. Your home life meets the same old frustrations before Wednesday – but these largely will dissolve by Oct. 5 onward. (A problem of financing and, perhaps, community reputation, might remain for another decade. Rather than flailing impotently against these, accept them, then go out, make friends, have fun. I’m serious.) Romantic feelings rise midweek. Taurus April 20-May 20: Romance, creativity, beauty, pleasure, speculation, charming children and a winning streak – these give their lucky touch to this week and next. Be adventurous; express yourself (and your feelings, to loved ones). Siblings, casual friends, errands, trips and communications fill Sunday to Tuesday – there will be bumps as well as delights. Love and liking goes well with an “angry” Scorpio, not so well with a Capricorn. Midweek accents home, kids, security – a sweet, restful interval, if you can sidestep anger or accident potential Wednesday eve. Love, romance flare Friday/Saturday! Gemini May 21-June 20: The accent continues on home, kids/parents, security, gardening, retirement and other “foundational” concerns. DON’T buy/rent a home Sunday noon to Tuesday (bad eventual financial result). Friends, emails, arrive midweek – or you go travelling, errand’ing. A good friend and a bad friend, or you and a friend argue then laugh. (This is a good time – generally, 2011 to 2018 – to start building new friends.) Exercise your curiosity. Head for home or nature, garden, peace, Friday/Saturday. Nurture kids. You might find a home/rental at a nice low price. Work hard all week, protect health.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Continue to lie low, rest and contemplate. Eat, sleep and dress sensibly, protect your health. Handle paperwork or communications with government agencies, charities and private head offices. Despite your low energy levels, you remain hopeful – in fact your optimism grows – and life looks brighter, especially Wednesday/Thursday. (Correctly so, as early October will “remove” three years of emotional “chains.”) Friends gather round too. Money flows swiftly to you, but bank it or lose it. Be ambitious, tackle career issues early week. Quietude and rest bless you Friday onward. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent remains on the power of popularity, wishful thinking (and fulfillment!) on flirtation, light romance, entertainment, fun, group affairs and optimism. Even when problems crop up (a wee bit Sunday – work/health – and Tuesday – a missed communication) you hardly feel them. (This early week period is gentle and wise – and promotes love.) Charge after career goals Wednesday/Thursday. (Bosses “love you” now to Oct. 2.) Channel your impatience/determination into work, not quarrels, Wednesday eve. All that fun, social joy and optimism climaxes delightfully Friday/Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Chase career and status goals this week and next – especially this Friday/Saturday, when a new project might begin. Opportunities begin to fill your days to mid-2013, offering lucky new relationships, public interactions, and, this month, openings to climb upward through contacts and co-operation. Your intellectual side blossoms, attracting affection and success in educational, far travel, legal, publishing and similar pursuits, especially Wednesday/Thursday. Seek out higher-ups, bosses and scholars – they favour you now. The Sunday-Tuesday period is jumbled – act Monday.

Sept. 9 - 16, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your intellectual side blossoms. Social rituals, gentle love, far travel, education, publishing, cultural involvements, international pursuits – all are favoured, especially Friday/Saturday, when a (related) new project or relationship might begin. Earlier, take care with relationships Sunday to Tuesday – true love could be riding these days, or a major glitch that could break a bond apart. (Your home circumstance could irk or impede you.) (You might watch sparks of attraction fly between two of your friends.) Midweek favours finances, sexual urges and health diagnosis – act! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The focus remains on secrets, research and detective work, sexual urges, investment, debt and other large financial matters, health diagnosis and lifestyle changes. These could trigger a fortunate event or action Friday/Saturday. (You should act; don’t leave it to others.) Earlier, tackle chores and health concerns Sunday to Tuesday. These few days hold money inspiration and career luck, but they “disagree” with romance and secret actions. Watch your words with higher-ups and authorities, especially Wednesday – they’re a little testy and so, perhaps, are you. A good week! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The focus remains on crucial relationships – of all kinds – and on opportunities and challenges. Be co-operative, seek others:you’ll gain in both emotional and practical ways. You are facing a whole new decade, a whole new life. Don’t sully the future with resentments or hurts from the past. It’s time to forgive, totally, and move on: that way, your future will shine with brightness and joy. Grab the bright, let go of the dim. This might be more meaningful Friday/Saturday (when a new relationship might begin, or new horizon appear). Passion early week; chores midweek (be safe). timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-560-1269
