Wilson takes plunge Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

The race for an NDP candidate in Coquitlam-Burke Mountain already featured a rocker and former politician — and now it includes a wrestler. Former world champion and Olympic wrestler Chris Wilson has put his name forward as an NDP candidate in the riding. The executive director for KidSport Tri-Cities said he’s always been interested in making a difference in the community. Wilson said he originally considered running in the next municipal election, but realized the issues he is most passionate about are out of the scope of municipal politics. “I think for me I have the most to offer on a provincial level rather than on a community level,” he said. And Wilson noted some of those issues include supporting the needs of families, education and keeping up with increasing costs in the education system and working with the federal government to narrow the income gap. “We just need to work a little harder on helping people in our society that need it,” he said. Wilson joins punk rocker turned political hopeful Joe Keithley from DOA and former Coquitlam mayoral candidate and councillor Barrie Lynch as the three candidates so far interested in the spot. Keithley ended months of speculation in August after he told The NOW his nomination papers had been approved by the party for the riding, while Lynch filed his papers just last week.

Tri-Cities showing a marrying trend The 2011 Census showed that the region has a higher rate of married couples per family Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

I

f the national trend in the last few years has people reconsidering the idea of the traditional marriage, then couples in the Tri-Cities didn’t quite get the memo. Recent data from 2011 Census shows all three municipalities are bucking the trend when it comes to marriage. According to the data, 76.2 per cent of census families in Coquitlam were married couples in 2011, while 8.3 per cent were common-law couples and 15.5 per cent were lone-parent families. The national average for married couples is 67 per cent, while the provincial average reached 71.7 per cent.

It’s a similar wedding tale in Port Moody and Port Coquitlam. In the City of the Arts, 74.4 per cent of families were married couples, while 11.7 per cent were common-law couples and 13.8 per cent were lone parent families. In PoCo, 72.5 per cent of families were married, with another 11 per cent as common-law and 16.6 per cent as single parents. Como Lake United Church Rev. Jan Bihl isn’t too surprised by the census numbers. She said in her own experience, there is a deep desire for couple’s at the church to commit to one another, noting there are a lot of married couples and families in the congregation. “I see a real sincerity in the people who come to be married here, to make their relationship work,”

Bihl told The NOW, adding however, the church is marrying fewer couples than years past. The reverend also believes the general trend toward fewer marriages might be turning around, suggesting there was a lot of disillusion around tying the knot in the last couple decades. “People are looking for some kind of commitment and belonging because there is so much isolation,” she said. Bihl also surmised the census data, at least in Coquitlam and in the area near her church, might be a reflection of the demographics, which she suggested was older couples whose kids and grand kids are also family-oriented.

t started with a chance moment of eye contact between Gregory Ould and a homeless man on the street on a cold night seven years ago in Vancouver’s Chinatown. Unable to just walk away, Ould asked the man if he needed some help. “He said, ‘Yes, I could use a blanket to survive the night,” Ould said. Ould was shocked that the difference between life and death may have just been a warm blanket. “There was no way in hell I was going to let that happen and there’s no way in hell we should let that happen,” Ould said.

He fetched a blanket from the nearby Army & Navy, and hasn’t looked back. Now, about 100,000 blankets later, his non-profit Blanket BC is hosting its inaugural Hike for the Homeless at Minnekhada Park this weekend. Residents are invited to come out and join a Saturday 5-kilometre or 10-kilometre hike and bring blankets and clothing, nonperishable food items and suggested $20 donations to help the local needy. Proceeds and donations will be sent to the SHARE Family and Community Services Society and the Hope for Freedom Society, both of which assist local homeless folks

throughout the year. “We want to help these organizations and raise awareness that there’s

still homelessness in the Tri-City area, and although there’s a lot of good that happens in the Tri-City area,

there’s always room for more,” Ould said. “The need is greater than ever. It seems there is a lot more people relying on organizations such as SHARE and Hope for Freedom.” Ould is hoping to get at least 100 hikers and more than 1,000 pounds of donated food. Registration for the event happens at 9:30 a.m. at the Quarry Road entrance to Minnekhada Park, and the weather is forecasted to cooperate. “Enjoy the park. Just come out. It’s going to be a glorious day. Thank God, we haven’t seen a September like this in such a long time.” For more information go to www. blanketbc.org.

Police seek assistance after another holdup in Coquitlam are looking to see if there is a possible link between Wednesday night’s incident and any other recent robberies. The RCMP has had its hands full trying to catch a robber in the Austin Heights business district since August. “At this point we cannot confirm they are linked, but we are definitely looking into them and this investigation is still open,” Luca said. The suspect in the Austin Heights cases is believed to be responsible for nine robberies.

Coquitlam Mounties are on the lookout for a suspect involved in robbery of a Subway restaurant late Wednesday night that involved a weapon. Police were called to the fast-food restaurant on Clarke Road near Como Lake around 9:30 p.m. after the report of a robbery. By the time police arrived, the suspect was gone. There were reports the thief had a gun. The man made off with a couple hundred dollars in cash, reportedly fleeing in a vehicle. RCMP Const. Michelle Luca said investigators

No one was injured in the recent robbery, and police are suggesting the employees did the all the right things during the incident by following the suspect’s demands. “As an employee, you’re safety is No. 1,” Luca said. The suspect is described as standing six-feet tall with a muscular build, wearing a black hoodie, black pants and a white bandana over his face.

No fall sitting Council wrestles with propaganda debate raises concerns Brent Richter

editorial@thenownews.com

Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com There’s a pretty good chance Tri-Cites residents will be seeing their provincial politicians around the community a little more often this fall. The premier cancelled the fall sitting of the legislature in Victoria last week, but the decision isn’t sitting well with the opposition NDP. Port Coquitlam NDP MLA Mike Farnworth said he wasn’t surprised by the cancellation, but argued it’s “typical” of the way the Liberal government has operated for the last decade. He suggested when the government “rammed” legislation through during the last spring session, he assumed it was a sign there were no plans for a fall sitting. “To me it shows a lack of accountability and a lack of willingness to answer questions in the legislature,” Farnworth told The NOW, adding he believes it’s one of the reasons why the Liberal government appears to be doing so poorly in the polls. He said the fall sitting is an opportunity to bring back bills from the spring for more debate. Though Farnworth credited the government for introducing the legislative calendar in the first place, he said it’s only good if the calendar is followed. In the meantime, the Port Coquitlam MLA said he has plenty of work to do in his constituency office and in his role as health critic. But the lone Tri-Cities Liberal MLA is standing by the decision to cancel the fall session. Coquitlam-Burke Mountain MLA Doug Horne argued there are many other things MLAs are doing with their time, noting he was on a finance tour in Kelowna this week. He said a fall sitting tends to eat up the finance committee’s work and opportunity to consult with the public. “The perception is that MLA’s aren’t working when the house isn’t in session, and quite frankly that’s about as far from the truth as you can possibly get,” he said, adding he feels committee work is more valuable than time sitting in the house. Horne also maintained time outside of Victoria is important in helping represent the residents in his riding. This week, Premier Christy Clark found herself defending controversial statements she made suggesting Victoria had a “sick culture” in an interview to a media outlet in May. On Wednesday, she said her comments were referring to the grounds of the legislature. Horne appeared to agree with his boss. “All of this bickering and not getting along, I think quite frankly the public is tired of it,” he said. Horne said at some point provincial politicians are going to have to take a hard look at the way the legislature operates, adding it’s not very effective or a good use of the MLAs time.

Is it art? Or is it propaganda? Coquitlam council dove into the philosophical debate while discussing what to do with a $35,000 grant earmarked for a public art project that will decorate the soon-to-be finished City Centre Library. The province put the money up to “bring together community members from different cultural and faith groups with a professional community artist, using art as a tool to examine issues of racism, diversity, integration and inclusion,” according to a city staff report. But, while he supported the motion and agreed with the ideals, Coun. Terry O’Neil warned that the project would, by definition, be propaganda. “What we have here is a committee directing what is supposed to be a work of art. That goes away from my vision of what art should be,” he said.

Propaganda art has the potential to be great, O’Neill noted, using Pablo Picasso’s Guernica as an example, but he urged the city to proceed carefully on the art project. “It can turn out really, really well, but I just want to caution: When you’ve got the combination of a piece of propaganda art, for a good cause, plus being essentially commissioned directly by a committee, you’ve got the potential for pap, and not art. Pap.” If the city ended up paying for the piece of questionable artistic value, he had a somewhat sarcastic alternative. “We’d be better off to just install a Coke machine, and play I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing in Perfect Harmony on a loop,” he said, drawing laughs from the gallery. While no one on council

seemed particularly alarmed by the thought of Coquitlam propaganda, the issue did raise concerns over just what the final product would be. “I don’t know what that would look like, but I tell you, I would like to see a drawing before they actually build it or mechanically make it or blow up glass thing or plant a planter or whatever it is going to turn out to be,” said Coun. Mae Reid. “I have real difficulty with this money just going to a committee without us seeing it.” Coun. Lou Sekora voted against issuing the grant on the grounds that he couldn’t justify paying the province’s $35,000 for art that hadn’t been seen or vetted by council. “What is it? Is it going to be offensive to some people?” he asked.

But the would-be public art did have a champion on council in Coun. Selina Robinson, who urged her colleagues to recognize the value of the art’s message and the value of going to the community to inspire it. “O ye of little faith. We talk about lack of community engagement and here’s a project that’s doing community engagement and we’re anxious before we even do this,” she said. “I have compete faith in our community and the artists to work together to together to come up with a project that reflects the things that we want them to reflect.” Staff noted that the process laid out is consistent with the city’s public art policy, and council members will have the chance to see it before it is installed, if they wish.

Eagle Ridge Hospital to get additional acute beds

Big changes are on the horizon for the hospital serving the Tri-Cities. As part of a regional plan to reduce hospital congestion and increase capacity, Eagle Ridge Hospital (ERH) will receive 22 permanent acute care beds, while 12 sub-acute beds will be upgraded to create a new 34-bed acute care general medicine unit. The Fraser Health Authority said the changes will help to decrease the length of time patients wait to be admitted from emergency, reduce the number of patients being cared for in non-clinical areas, and provide for the best possible patient care. ERH will also get an 18-bed regional rehab unit. Nine regional rehab beds are being moved from Surrey Memorial Hospital (SMH) and an additional nine PATH (Patient Assessment and Transition to Home) beds at ERH will be converted to rehab beds to create the unit.

The unit will provide care to patients who are recovering from stroke, as well as brain, spinal cord and other serious injuries. The health authority suggested additional acute care beds and regional rehab beds would create new job opportunities at ERH, including nursing and allied health and support service positions, as well as the need for additional physician coverage. The new acute care beds and relocated regional rehab beds will be phased in as renovations are completed and new staff members are hired starting at the end of September. The additional capacity is expected to be completed by November. Currently, SMH rehab patients either go to Queen’s Park Care Centre (QPCC) in New Westminster or are cared for on a mixed rehab/ACE (Acute Care for the Elderly) unit at SMH. The health authority said with the

changes, SMH rehab patients will be streamed to QPCC and most Royal Columbian Hospital (RCH) patients from the Tri-Cities who require rehab will be referred to ERH, which will free up capacity at QPCC. However, ERH will also be closing its 25-bed Transitional Care Unit (TCU) as current patients are transitioned to appropriate residential care placements in the community. Fraser Health said transitional care units were introduced as a temporary measure for patients who no longer need to be in hospital but are waiting for placement in community care settings. These patients will now be transferred to residential care directly from PATH or medicine units. To facilitate this change, Fraser Health will be purchasing additional residential care capacity in the Tri-Cities and surrounding communities.

currently holds the riding. Wilson, who lives in Coquitlam but not in the riding, said he would have preferred to run in CoquitlamMaillardville, but the NDP’s gender policy has made it impossible. However, he said he’s spent a lot of time in the riding both working and volunteering, and knows the area well. It could be some months before the candidates face a vote. The Coquitlam-Burke Mountain NDP Constituency Association doesn’t have a date set for a nomination meeting. The president of the association previously stated a meeting isn’t expected until late fall

or even next year. But it won’t be the only riding in the Tri-Cities looking for an NDP candidate. On Monday, CoquitlamMaillardville MLA Diane Thorne announced she wouldn’t be running again in the next provincial election, meaning a new candidate will also be picked for that riding.

Police also remain tightlipped about the investigation into a brazen early morning jewel heist at Coquitlam Centre back in July. On July 6, four masked gunmen smashed a pickup trick through the glass entrance of the mall, breaking into the Ben Moss Jewellers store. The suspects made off with a bounty in another vehicle waiting outside. At the time, police said it appeared the heist was well planned. The case is similar to a recent early morning robbery at two Metrotown jewelry stores in Burnaby last week. Coquiltam Mounties said the July robbery is still under investigation.

Coquitlam Mounties are still on the hunt for a serial robber in the Austin Heights business district, but the suspect does appear to have cooled his spree. Police aren’t saying much about the investigation, but they did confirm the suspected thief hasn’t struck in the last few weeks. RCMP Const. Michelle Luca noted the investigation is still ongoing, and police are follow-

The thief originally targeted a coffee shop, retail store and pharmacy in the first wave. In one case, the man may have brandished a gun. A week later, the suspect targeted four other businesses. In all, police believe the same suspect is responsible for a total of nine robberies, linking the man based on his

Slope collapse causes traffic jam on Hwy 1 Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com It was a painful morning commute for drivers using Highway 1 eastbound in Coquitlam Thursday, after an embankment collapsed on a portion of the highway. Some time early Thursday morning, a roughly 50-metre chunk of soil slid down an embankment on the highway between North Road and the Brunette Avenue overpass. As a precaution, two of the three eastbound lanes were shut while geotechnical crews stabilized the slope. The road was eventually given a clean bill of health after a few hours. All three lanes were reopened shortly after noon, but the incident caused major delays and lineups on the highway leading all the way

back well into Burnaby. There were no injuries reported in the incident, and given the location of the slide, there was no damage. Port Mann/Highway 1 Project spokesperson Max Logan also noted there was no damage to the closed lanes or the highway pavement. “This kind of thing happens from time-totime on construction projects when excavation is underway,” he told The NOW. Logan said he is unaware of any similar incidents on the project, adding crews don’t expect another slide to occur again. As for the Port Mann project itself, three lanes of the new bridge were opened to traffic on Tuesday. Last week, the B.C. government announced a fee scheme for the bridge, which will see tolls start at $1.50 when the bridge opens in December, until the end of February.

Affordability may attract married to Tri-Cities  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

gerontology at Simon Fraser University, offered another reason why the city might be attracting traditional couples — affordability. She suggested couples looking for more of the traditional family lifestyle tend to move away from urban cores. “Coquitlam might be offering them the kind of lifestyle that supports the kind of family life they want,” Mitchell said. Like Bihl, the SFU professor also believes the tradition of marriage is alive and well. “Despite all of this public discourse that modern-day families are all falling apart and no one wants to remain together, I would argue it’s still something that a lot of people do idealize and they want to achieve,” Mitchell said.

“If they can find a community that supports them to be able to live that way, they’re going to live there.” There are more than 27,000 married couples in Coquitlam, another 3,000 common-law families and 5,500 single parents. There are 11,700 married couples in Port Coquitlam, 1,700 common-law families and 2,600 single parents. In Port Moody, the census found more than 7,000 married couples, 1,100 common-law couples and 1,300 single parents. Interestingly, the traditional married couple is most strong in the Village of Anmore and Belcarra. The census showed 84 per cent of families in both communities are married couples.

Opinion

Too much speed on our streets As a Port Moody resident on Ashwood Drive with a home that backs onto Forest Parkway West, I have the “privilege” of witnessing on a daily basis the excessive speeding of traffic on both streets. We have reviewed the Neighbourhood Traffic Calming Policy and understand there must be certain criteria met in order to proceed with any traffic calming measures. We encourage the city to measure the To The speed and frequency of drivers using these two streets as a starting point. I am not in a position to start a Neighborhood Advisory Committee or start a petition that requires 75 per cent of people living on these streets to sign and approve traffic calming measures. I am, however, in a position to make the City

of Port Moody aware of the problem we have with excess speeders on these two streets and take appropriate action. We are in great fear that unless measures are taken soon to control the speed of vehicles on Ashwood Drive and Forest Parkway West, people — most likely children — will be injured or worse. We are doing our part in making the City of Port Moody aware of this Editor situation and now it is up to the City to take control from here. Michael Zucchelli Port Moody

Our View

Take the chill out of this off-ice war

S

ummer may have been late arriving hereabouts, but it sure is hanging around in decidedly unfall-like fashion. Maybe that’s why it is hard to get invested in who is right or wrong in the NHL lockout. After all, who is thinking about a game played on ice when it’s still warm enough to hang out at the beach. Our support at this time isn’t divvied up between players or owners, but business people whose livelihood depends upon the money that trickles down from an NHL season. The delayed start to the hockey season is, as always, about money. The owners want more. About 50 per cent of them have operated with a deficit at some point between 2009 and 2011 and the weakest sisters in this bunch wrote their books in red for all three years — or so they claim. It’s the same short-sighted owners who don’t like the collective agreement they negotiated in 2004 and have locked their players out for the third time in 18 years in order to extract concessions to fund their limited business sense. Yes, the same owners who condone their underlings to offer astronomical millions to players over an unsightly length of time. We could go on but it’s just too aggravating. Canadian hockey fans are a loyal, if not desperate, lot (see Maple Leafs, Toronto). But maybe this time the lockout will result in owners and players both realizing they can’t take the fans for granted any more. If you have to get a hockey fix, the Coquitlam Express appear poised for a great season, with some of its players setting the stage for future NHL careers. There are also worthy arts and entertainment options throughout the TriCities. The lockout is an opportunity to discover new hobbies and activities, or rekindle interest in a forgotten one. We fans have options — and now is our chance to exercise them.

Christy is just doing what any good leader today knows how to do best: smile pretty for the cameras, send out optimistic press releases, demonstrate the ability to do a little creative bending of the rules (and/or truth), and most of all, get out of the way when the hard questions start getting fired in your direction. In British Columbia, as in Canada as a whole, we are privileged to be living at a time when freedom from democracy appears to be experiencing its finest hour.

Thank you for helping out Recently, my wife Carol was in a serious car accident at Mary Hill Road and Kelly Avenue in Port Coquitlam. It seems she blacked out for no apparent reason. Fortunately, she received only minor injuries from the seatbelt. I arrived at the scene 10 minutes later to find emergency crews and a number of damaged vehicles including our own, which is a write-off. We say thank you to the Port Coquitlam Fire Department and the BC Ambulance crew — who offered what I am sure is their normal but also high level of care and professionalism — and the witnesses who assisted my wife from the car and comforted her, and offered to store my bike for me when I accompanied her to the hospital. I was too panicked to find out any of their names. We also want to thank the nurses, doctors and orderlies who attended Carol in Eagle Ridge ER. And special thanks to RCMP Const. Lauzon, for his sensitivity and compassion. To our good friends who have helped us through this, we offer our lasting gratitude. To those whose vehicles were damaged and who were inconvenienced, we can offer only apologies. Brian Hubbard Port Coquitlam

The petroleum Editor kings, fossil fuel führers and our prime minister are all behind this new lingo some label Petrospeak. It is aimed at calming public fears that the schemes of these profiteers, polluters and politicians may not actually be aimed primarily at improving the lives of the masses. At the outset of the controversy over the world’s dirtiest petroleum extraction project in northern Alberta, critics and realists called the resource “tar sands,” because the gunk being recovered there bears a strong resemblance to the thick, smelly stuff we spread on highways. This unpleasant word was immediately pounced upon by the Petro-people and the Petro-press, and they insisted upon calling the raw material “oil sands,” raising thoughts of that delightful liquid

known as “sweet crude.” Only a few media outside the control of the corporate press stuck with “tar,” because this annoys Ottawa. But “Petrospeak” is a living language, moving with the times, and gradually even the word oil is being replaced in discussions with the word “energy.” I mean, who’s afraid of an energy spill? Even as Enbridge suffers the lash of U.S. investigators over the pipeline spill into Michigan’s Kalamazoo River in 2010, the idea of a ruptured pipe introducing energy into a B.C. river sounds pretty harmless. Wouldn’t we sleep better if we embraced the idea that energy tankers are dodging all those potential collisions along our middle coast and Burrard Inlet? Ask the Petro-people why gasoline prices keep shooting upward, and the lexicon flowers again. The rise is because of market volatility, readjustment, restoration of refining costs, Hurricane Isaac or maybe moon phases. For some reason the term “gouging” never comes out. There’s some magic at work, too. Run massive TV ad campaigns in which the word “clean” is displayed beside the word “coal” and presto — coal that has fouled the air for centuries becomes a harmless additive our lungs should welcome.

Refugees rally against immigration changes Jennifer Moreau editorial@burnabynow.com Roma-Hungarian refugee families from Coquitlam, Burnaby and New Westminster gathered for a rally Tuesday outside of the federal immigration offices on Georgia Street in Vancouver. “Roma people, Roma families have a big fear to go back to Hungary. Their life is in great danger there,” said Florian Botos, a Burnaby resident who helped organize the rally. The rally attracted mostly Roma refugee families who came to Canada from Hungary. According to Botos, Roma people in Hungary face widespread discrimination and attacks from neo-Nazis, some of which have resulted in death. “We heard that the government claimed that Hungarian-Roma refugees are bogus refugees,” Botos said. “It’s not true. These people who are with me today, they own businesses, they come here (to Canada) — as refugees. Those are hardworking people, they came here, not to be on welfare, they came here for protection.” This fall, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney is expected to come up with a list of countries that are considered safe and don’t normally produce refugees. Cases for refugee claimants from countries on this list will be heard faster, but those rejected will have no chance to appeal. The government’s move is an attempt to discourage people from so-called safe countries from abusing Canada’s

refugee system. “Refugee claimants from designated countries will continue to receive a fair hearing at the independent Immigration and Refugee Board but will do so under an expedited timeline, as is standard practice in many Western democracies,” said Alexis Pavlich, press secretary to the immigration minister. “Just as before, nationals of designated countries will continue to be able to make asylum claims, be able to attend an asylum hearing, and to be subject to the same principles of natural justice and due process. “Canada has the most fair and generous refugee system in the world. We accept one in 10 of all resettled refugees, more than almost any other country. In fact, our government is increasing the number of resettled refugees Canada welcomes by 20 per cent a year.” According to a Canadian Press report published in The Globe and Mail Tuesday, the federal government may consider detaining Roma refugee claimants if recent changes don’t curb their numbers. The article was based on an internal Canada Border Services Agency report obtained through access to information laws. “Other deterrent measures being examined include detention for mass arrivals of individuals seeking refugee protection,” the report stated. According to the Globe, most of Canada’s refugee claimants in 2011 were from Hungary, and the majority of those are believed to be of Roma descent. Nearly all of those 4,442 claims were rejected or abandoned, the Globe reported.

Lack of funds pulls rug from Taste, Spirit events Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com The end of September is usually about the time the Society for Community Development (SDC) in Coquitlam unveils one of the bigger events in the year — The Taste of the Tri-Cities and Spirit of Community Awards. But this fall, the taste buds will be put on hold. The SDC has cancelled both events for this year. SDC board member Cathy Burpee told The NOW the two events were scrapped because the organization simply lacked the funds to put them on. More specifically, she said the SDC lacked the upfront

money to handle both events. Burpee insisted there was no outside source that cut the funding to the events. “There was no bad guy out there who said ‘we’re not going to fund that,’” she said, adding funding all around is being reduced. Participating businesses and sponsors were notified of the cancellation earlier this year. The cancellation is still a big disappointment to the SDC. “We do believe it’s important to get people to recognize their community and the strengths of it,” Burpee said, adding the events were always well attended and well received by sponsors in the community. The Taste of the Tri-Cities was essentially a trade show-

style event that combined food and lifestyle along with a variety of businesses from around community for an evening of celebration. The event started 12 years ago, and took a brief hiatus for two years, before being brought back in 2010. Burpee noted in its first few years, the event was held in school gyms. But by the end, the Taste of the Tri-Cities had grown to a 500-guest gala held in the Red Robinson Show Theatre. Burpee didn’t rule out the possibility the gala could return in a few years. The SCD was established more than two decades ago as a non-profit and non-partisan social planning organization.

Port Moody teen still in rainbow hunt

S

he’s another few steps down the yellow brick road. Coquitlam’s Jennifer Gillis has advanced to the next round in Over the Rainbow, a CBC reality show contest to find a Dorothy for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Toronto production of the Wizard of Oz. Gillis, a 16-year-old Gleneagle Secondary student, breezed through the first round of competition last Sunday, earning her way into the next episode. Gillis performed Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jim Steinman’s Whistle Down the Wind from the musical of the same name, managing to impress the judges — including Webber himself. Competitors face elimination from the show every week based on votes from viewers sent in via social media, the Over the Rainbow website, a smartphone app and by phone. As long as she stays out of the bottom two in votes cast during an episode, Gillis will advance to the next round. The bottom two must compete in a sing-off and the judges then sends one home. A self-described perfectionist, Gillis brings a lot of experience — nine years of studying at the Lindbjerg Academy of Performing Arts. Taking to social media, Gillis has tweeted thanks to her followers. “Thank you once again everyone for supporting me in chasing my dream, because of you, I become one step closer! #sograteful #dreamingdorothy,” she wrote Monday.

REAL ESTATE TRI-CITIES Kitchen remodelling ideas for every budget K

itchens are a reflection of personal style. Just as you add new pieces to your wardrobe when the seasons change, kitchen updates keep spaces fresh and current. The following three tips, inspired by fall/winter interior design trends from design duo Blazys Gerard, offer splurgeversus-save ideas to bring a unique flair to your kitchen and entertaining space.

wood dining table, and wide wood plank floors. Clean cabinetry with builtin stainless steel appliances provide the ultimate base and maintain the focus on your overall design. Save: Adore the look of a

built-in fridge but not ready to splurge? Jenn-Air offers cabinet depth refrigerators that appear built-in and are mounted flush with the cabinets; custom overlay panels can even be added to further blend with surrounding cab-

inetry. Bring in additional rustic elements through thoughtful accessories: a reclaimed wood plank is a beautiful table runner, especially when stained to compliment your kitchen, and a vintage milk jug doubles as a

statement vase. As a final tip (and the quickest and most simple of all), stop by your local farmer’s market or flower shop—fresh blooms add visual interest and bring instant life to any space. So whether you choose to

do a major renovation or some quick revitalizing, keep these design trends in mind as you update your kitchen this fall to bring new energy, warmth, and style to your home. — www.newscanada.com

1. Go glam Splurge: Streamline your layout to evoke a sleek and sophisticated vibe. Integrating built-in appliances, such as a Jenn-Air 30” single wall oven in floating white glass, adds polish and maximizes undercounter space. For entertainers, an openconcept living space with an oversized island creates a central hub at parties. The addition of an under-counter beverage centre is always a hit with guests and wine lovers alike. For texture and elegant contrast, select a high-gloss stone countertop and darkstained floors. Save: Backsplashes are a blank canvas and offer the opportunity to create a big impact. Whether you embellish the space with mosaic tile, glass, or even stylish marble, a show-stopping backsplash creates a feature wall that is as beautiful as it is functional. Another option is to install a statement light fixture, whether architectural or ornate, to shine new light onto the space.

3. Add rustic charm Splurge: Create a chic space with rustic touches: butcherblock countertops, a reclaimed

2: Turn up the heat Splurge: Take inspiration from a modern gastropub and incorporate a fireplace into your kitchen. While this is a significant design commitment, a fireplace is a modern addition to the kitchen and unites living spaces, particularly in open concept homes. Richly stained cabinets exude further warmth and provide a restaurant-at-home feel. Keep the lines of the cabinets and countertops slick and you’ll have a contemporary, eclectic space. Save: If you live in a condo where the addition of a fireplace isn’t an option, bring in warmth through accessories. Cookbooks, cozy throw pillows, and banquette seating will soften the space and create a relaxed atmosphere. A vintage settee in place of two chairs at the table is another way to add a touch of luxury and comfort.

REAL ESTATE TRI-CITIES Realtors to grind up Grouse donations go to support women’s shelters in communities across Canada where the participants are from. “The tradition of fundraising in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is alive and well at our National Sales Conference this year,” said Shanan Spencer-Brown, executive director of the shelter foundation. “It’s incredible that amongst the learning, sharing and networking that takes place, Royal LePage agents and brokers have raised over $1 million at our conferences to help abused women and children across the country.” In addition to the Grouse Grind 4 Shelter, at this year’s national conference — where the company officially kicks off celebrations in honour of next year’s 100th year anniversary — 800 conference goers will participate in a variety of events including live and silent auctions, a golf tournament, trolley rides, whisky tastings and other activities in support of the Shelter Foundation’s mission to help end family violence. The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to supporting women’s shelters and ending violence against women and children. Through agent commission donations and the fundraising activities of the Royal LePage network, we have raised over $14 million since 1999 to help provide a safe haven and new beginnings to more than 30,000 women and children each year. All funds raised by Royal LePage offices remain in their local community. For more information, visit www. royallepage.ca/shelter.

Realtors from across Canada are ready to step up for charity. On the eve of the bi-annual Royal LePage National Sales Conference in Vancouver this weekend, a group of 60 Royal LePage agents and brokers from across Canada will test their physical fitness on one of the region’s toughest slices of real estate all for a good cause. The group will climb the Grouse Grind — coined “Mother Nature’s Stairmaster” — and raise funds in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. The program is Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to supporting women’s shelters and helping to end family violence. Since 1998, agents, brokers and staff from across the country have raised more than $14 million to fund women’s shelters and grassroots violence prevention programs in every province. The “Grouse Grind 4 Shelter” was conceived by Sebastian Albrecht, a Vancouver sales representative. Albrecht holds the record for the most number of ascents of the Grouse Grind in one day. In 2010, he climbed the Grouse Grind 14 times and raised over $20,000 in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. This summer, he challenged his colleagues from across the country to participate in the Grouse Grind 4 Shelter and raise funds for the shelter foundation. The Grouse Grind covers 2.9 kilometres and features an elevation gain of 853 metres. Participants have already raised $20,000 through pledges. One hundred percent of the

Banting student takes torch for juvenile diabetes research Brent Richter editorial@thenownews.com

W

hen you’re 11 years old and different, you can shy away from the world. Or you can seek to change it. Coquitlam’s Brandon Taylor, who has Type 1 diabetes (T1D), has chosen the latter, taking on the role of youth ambassador for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The foundation is holding its annual Ride for Juvenile Diabetes Research Today (Friday) where Brandon will be front and centre. “It’s kind of a big successful day, celebrating all the money that we’ve raised so far. It’s what we’ve being working for to help get people into the event and active with it,” he said. Brandon has been taking on speaking engagements at schools and businesses during the last year to help raise money and awareness of the illness that affects thousands of children. With T1D, kids’ pancreases stop producing insulin, the hormone vital in regulating blood sugar. Unlike Type 2 Diabetes, there is no known cause. But that could change through research, Brandon hopes, and fundraising has been good. “They set a fundraising goal record. They’ve never raised this kind of money before in Vancouver and it looks like they’re going to set a national record this year, which is amazing,” said Brandon’s father Mike. “Brandon is really excited.” Excelling as he is, Brandon still faces challenges most kids don’t. “Being in middle school it’s kind of hard keeping the schedule of a sixth-grader and taking care of diabetes, but I

you guys!! #overtherainbow.’ Port Moody’s Fiona McIntyre, who also survived the massive talent search to make the show, didn’t advance into the top-10.

manage to do it,” the middle school student said. “Usually I just have to make sure I’m feeling OK and making sure my blood sugar is good, but most of the time I’m good with it. I have a watch that has a bunch of alarms on it.” Brandon has to measure his blood sugar four times a day, which has now added up to 8,000 finger pricks since he was five. He takes insulin injections at breakfast, dinner and before midnight. Appropriately, Brandon is a student at Ecole Banting Middle School, named for

Dr. Frederick Banting, the Canadian Nobel Prize winner who, along with Charles Best, was a co-discoverer of the insulin the youth now relies on. Every year the school does fundraising for diabetes research. Not content with just being a spokesman and successful fundraiser, Brandon is also now looking to expand his role within the foundation to bolster the cause. “Next year I’m going to be taking on the roll of senior ambassador. Instead of going to all the speaking events, I’ll be helping with a bunch of big

stuff,” he said Specifically, he’ll serve as a role model and advisor to other youth ambassadors, helping them to write their speeches. “He’s just always tried to go above and beyond to help other people. He’s never been the type of kid to say ‘woe is me because I have diabetes,’” Mike said, beaming with pride. The Ride for Juvenile Diabetes Research takes place Friday, 10 a.m. at the Vancouver Art Gallery. More information is available at www.jdrf.ca.

Savvy homebuyers are using it to make more informed purchasing decisions. The New Homes Registry provides free access to find out if a home has a policy of home warranty insurance and is built by a Licensed Residential Builder, or whether it’s built without home warranty insurance.

Living Library program provides first-hand knowledge, experience

Imagine a book that has the answers to many of your questions and problems. Now picture that book ready and waiting for you at the Coquitlam Public Library’s Poirier Branch. Now, finally, picture that book as a human being. That is the essence of the Living Library program, now back for its fourth year, set to run Saturday, Sept. 29 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Residents who come in can book a “human book” with expertise and experience in immigration, religion, the arts, athletics, health and politics, for a 20- to 30-minute one-on-on session to learn about the unique challenges and strategies they have encountered.

“Meant to battle prejudice, the Living Library program encourages people to probe beneath the surface and learn about living, breathing people, rather than dwelling on stereotypes pushed by the media or by one’s personal bias,” a press release for the even states. On the list of participate this year: • Imaad Ali — Muslim community leader • Marianne Berkey — archaeologist and Douglas College alumnus • Amy Candido — eating disorders peer support worker at the Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre • Jasmin Glaesser — bronze medalist as part of Canada’s women’s cycling team in the

2012 Summer Olympics • Akhil Jobanputra — 15year-old student of Indian classical music • Meena Paranjpe — retired speech therapist and volunteer speech therapist at Dogwood Pavilion • Grace Pedroso — immigrant and early childhood education graduate • Colleen Penrowley and Rana Al-Sammarraie — members of the Soroptimists International of the TriCities • Selina Robinson — councillor, City of Coquitlam and surrogate mother • David Russell — Freelance mystery writer from Coquitlam • Mayor Richard Stewart — mayor, City of Coquitlam, MLA for Coquitlam-

Improv takes on Halloween theme

In the battle between Good and Evil, who are you cheering for? The Second Storey Theatre in Port Coquitlam presents a frighteningly fun improv show twice a week during October, called VamProv — Vampires vs. Humans. This kids-friendly Halloween show features three humans and three vampires competeing through song, stories and games to win the audience’s support. “Halloween is about being a little scary, getting dressed up, and having a lot of fun,” said

Graham Myers, artistic director of Second Storey Theatre. Audiences are encouraged to come wearing their Halloween-best costume for all shows. There will also be a costume contest with the winner receiving a pass to their 50-hour Improvathon in November. Shows are 8 p.m. every Friday and Saturday through October. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students/seniors — those who come dressed up will receive 2-for-1 tickets. For more info, go to www.seconstoreytheatre.com.

Maillardville (2001-2005) • Krishna Teja — international student from Hyderabad, India • Brittany Timko — bronze medalist in soccer, 2012 Summer Olympics • Fay Wong—career consultant and wellness counsellor with a community social service worker diploma from Douglas College There is no pre-registration required to participate.

The 2012 Nissan Rogue shines in compact utility market David Chao editorial@thenownews.com

T

he Nissan Rogue has been one of those “sleeper” cars that people don’t seem to notice or talk about, but somehow manages to do quite well in various reviews and car tests. For example, the Nissan Rogue was voted the best new SUV/CUV Under $35,000 sold in Canada, when introduced for 2008. Euro styling, great fuel economy and an extraroomy interior made it stand out in a very popular market segment that continues to grow, and grow. Since then, good consumer reliability and crash safety ratings have helped make Rogue a solid new vehicle purchase, especially for those smart shoppers who only invest in a vehicle with a proven trackrecord. And for the 2012 model year, Nissan has added a new top-level SL trim with all options, including leather, for just $34,274. A favourite of mine, Nissan’s brilliant Around View Monitor system also comes with in this SL package. The ultimate parking aid, it provides live camera views from above, side and back of the Rogue, at the push of a button.

The overhead (bird’s eye) view is a computer generated image created by four small super-wide-angle cameras that give a 360° view of objects all around the Rogue. All Rogue models come with the same 2.5 litre, 4 cylinder engine matched with a (CVT) automatic transmission. The base S and mid-level SV trim levels are available in both front-drive and all-wheel-drive and the SL is only available with all-wheel-drive. The 2.5-litre engine is a double-overhead-camshaft arrangement with continuously variable valve control and it can produce up to 170 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. It’s tuned to provide good torque in the low-to-mid rpm range and quick initial response from a standing start. It’s also easy on fuel, with the front-drive versions are the most economical. The Xtronic CVT (continuously variable transmission) has adaptive logic control that adjusts gear ratios to different driving situations and driver demands. A new sport mode switch has also been added and it instantly changes the ratio selection to with a more aggressive pattern. The AWD system can send up to 100 per cent of drive to either the front to rear wheels

Practical and loaded with handy storage trays and bins, the interior of the 2012 Nissan Rogue makes up for its lack of flair with its functionality. if required. It’s interlinked with the Rogue’s electronic stability control system and it can also be locked (another button) in 50/50 distribution, which is very useful on snow covered or slippery road surfaces. The default drive setting

sends all power to the front wheels and under normal driving conditions this offers best fuel economy. Rogue’s rear suspension is somewhat unique in this class. It’s an independent multi-link system that includes alum-

inum-alloy upper links and shock absorbers with rebound springs. It’s design allows more (versus a strut type rear suspension) cargo space in the rear. There’s a lot of good competition in the compact util-

ity market, with the recently revised Honda CR-V and new Ford Escape leading the charge. Rogue leans more to its SUV roots than some of its newer competitors, as it offers  CONT. ON PAGE 28, see AGILITY.

Tom and Ray Magliozzi Dear Tom and Ray: “I have enjoyed reading your help for car owners for years. Now I need your help. When I was working and had my car, I took care of my own maintenance. When I had the tires rotated, I always paid to have them balanced. Now retired, my husband and I share a car. We recently had the tires rotated on our 2007 Toyota Corolla. My husband would not pay to have the tires balanced. He said this is not necessary unless new tires are put on. He said the tires had been balanced when they were first put on the rims, and balancing is not needed just because they are now in a different position on the car. Is he right?” — Dorothy

RAY: You might want to sit down, Dorothy. Because he IS right. TOM: Take a few deep breaths, Dorothy. The lightheaded feeling will pass. Generally speaking, tires get balanced for specific wheels, or rims, as you call them. So if you move the whole package (tire and wheel) to another position on the car, it shouldn’t need to be balanced again. RAY: Now, there are exceptions. Tires can become unbalanced. Like my brother. TOM: Sure. The most common causes of unbalanced tires are wheel weights that fall off, bent rims or tires that have been damaged. Those events often are associated with hitting a curb or driving over a really nasty pothole. RAY: If a front wheel were to go out of balance due to some such event, you’d probably notice that right away. You’d get a shimmy or wobble that would get telegraphed up the steering wheel. But if it happens to a rear wheel, it might go unnoticed for a while. TOM: And if you then have your tires rotated, and that unbalanced rear tire gets rotated to the front, you’ll suddenly notice a problem. In that case, a rebalancing would be necessary. RAY: But your husband is right, Dorothy. The tires don’t have to be balanced automatically whenever they’re rotated.

TRI-CITIES AUTOMOTIVE

GUIDE

MOTORING

Agility, versatility makes Nissan Rogue a good drive  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 23.

good ground clearance and a lockable four wheel drive system.

Style

A good looking vehicle from day one, the French connection in the Rogue’s design gives it a distinctive look that stands out among its twobox competitors. Exterior changes to the 2012 Rogue are certainly modest, but do include a new chrome license plate finisher and a rear spoiler. Rogue is built on Nissan’s “C” platform (shared with Sentra) and uses high-strength steel extensively to reduce body weight. It has a long 2,690 mm wheelbase and the body also features extra large doors with wide openings that make getting in or out of a Rogue an easier task. The interior lacks the flair of the exterior and although on the plain side it is pleasant enough and very practical. Lots of good storage spots including, an extra-large glove box and central console storage bin. The cabin can seat five, but a third adult occupant in the centre back seat would probably find it a tight fit. There are also lots of handy little trays, bins and other spots to stow stuff and the rear cargo area provides 818 litres of space. The 60/40 split rear seatback increases this to 1,639 litres when folded down, but doesn’t provide a fully flat cargo floor. Bluetooth hands-free phone, iPod and audio connectivity are standard. Even a base Rogue comes with cruise control. My test SL came with automatic climate control, Nissan Intelligent Key, a Bose audio system and black leather

upholstery with sexy red stitching.

Safety

Standard safety features in Rogue include the usual front, side and side-curtain air bags, plus active head restraints on the front seats. There’s also a rollover sensor that can also activate the roof-mounted curtain air bags. The Rogue got an impressive overall 4-star rating from the more stringent new US SaferCar crash test program. It earned 4-star ratings in the frontal and roll-over tests and a 5-star rating on side impact.

The Drive

The driver sits tall in a seat that offers good forward sight lines, which is one of the reasons that more and more buyers are choosing this type of vehicle. While the Rogue’s back window looks big enough (from the outside), the driver’s view, via the rear-view mirror, was disappointingly restrictive. That said, the around-view camera more than compensates for this drawback. Lots of adjustment features help the driver find a good seating position, including seat cushion height. However the steering wheel (column) did not have a telescopic feature. Loved the round air vents in the dash, as they were simple to use and provided a wide range of directional control. Pressing on the gas pedal produces an immediate initial reaction from the Rogue’s big four-cylinder engine. It’s a quiet, torque rich engine at low to mid-range engine speeds, but the (CVT) transmission may not be to everyone’s liking.

Submitted photo by Bob McHugh

Practical and loaded with handy storage trays and bins, the interior of the 2012 Nissan Rogue makes up for its lack of flair with its functionality. A CVT doesn’t operate with that familiar stepped gear change linearity that a conventional automatic provides. It is a more efficient transmission than a conventional automatic. Rogue has a light, agile driving feel with precise steering characteristics and a taut yet supple suspension. It provides a more engaging

car-like driving experience than you generally expect or get in a utility vehicle.

The Score

The value packed, tried and tested Nissan Rogue is a versatile, fuel efficient compact utility vehicle that’s easy on the eyes and the wallet.

The Riverview Lands: Call for Participation Draft Heritage Conservation Plan

Parenting

The NOW COQUITLAM, PORT COQUITLAM, PORT MOODY, ANMORE AND BELCARRA

Communication works wonders Y plan and then explain what behaviour you expect. If you aren’t sure whether he got the message, ask him to repeat it back to you. When you are going to be taking a child out shopping, choose a time when she is more likely to be accommodating. Bringing a child who is hungry or ready for her nap is just asking for trouble. But if she has had lunch, a nap and a small snack she is now ready to handle herself in public and you will both have a better day. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that even though it’s lunchtime you can hold your child off for a half hour while you run your errands. That simply never works. Before you leave make sure she gets a chance to prepare to go out. She may need five minutes to finish a game or

she may want to ensure that her stuffed monkey is tucked into bed. If you just rush out without considering her needs, you are more likely to have a problem. Decide ahead of time whether you will let her buy a treat. She will want one and let’s face it, the mall is full of temptations for shoppers of all ages. So, plan ahead. Are you going to stop for an ice cream cone or not? With a little planning and clear communication shopping with kids can be a pleasure.

Of philodendrons, rudbeckia and mallows slice off your philodendron’s head and replant it. Cutting her trunk down to a foot or so might also trigger new shoots. “We had extensive landscaping done in February 2010 and mostly we love it. But not everything is thriving. Our Rudbeckia hirta has collapsed in the middle as though something squashed it. Now another clump has the same problem. Should I divide them?” Jill McIntosh, Coquitlam

Philodendron vines are reputed to shoot back vigorously from hard pruning. They’re even said to grow new plants from slices of stem. So your idea about chopping off the top and Branching Out replanting it might work, though you’ll have to Yes, your rudbeckia should be divided.

This can be done in fall, but Since your plant is tropical and will be inside, I don’t think the time of year will make a difference to pruning results. So fall or spring — it’s your choice. An alternative plan is cutting back some of the philodendron’s long branches to fit your space better but leaving some green growth. The plant should respond by putting out new growth points on the stem and lower branches or as side-shoots on the leafy stems you left. But before you make a major cut, why not make sure a young philodendron is waiting as a backup. Just take a couple of four or five-inch pieces, remove any leaves which would be in soil, apply rooting hormone in shallow slits near the bottom end and plant in potting mix. Keep the cuttings watered. They should root quickly. As soon as they start growing, you’re in a safe position to

SLEEP APNEA?

As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D. Often snorers also have sleep apnea which causes being tired all day, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heartbeats (per FDA website). Millions suffer needlessly and can stop their nightly ordeals. To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH ! Sleep apnea capsules worked first night!

Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS !It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.

Michelle Woodman, 29, Crystal Falls, ON !I was in the hospital for 2 weeks. They made tests including MRIs, tried every drug they had. Nothing worked. I was praying to die.

spring growth makes a faster start. “I have some mallows which are infected by orange rust. Should I root them out after flowering?” Kimie Takusagawa E-mail Yes, do root them out. Don’t compost them because that will only spread the infection. Your mallows are probably hollyhocks. Hollyhocks are a type of mallow which is notorious for rust infections. It would also be best to remove about an inch of the top layer of soil where the mallows were. Then mulch with new soil, compost or bark mulch. This will help deter rust spores from re-infecting anything else that you plant in the same place. The Antwerp hollyhock is said to be resistant to rust. • Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via amarrison@shaw.ca

Allergies

are a modern epidemic

!I used Bell Allergy Relief #24 for 2 years. I tried numerous other remedies all my life that were not effective. Since I discovered #24 I do not have a stuffy nose and itchy eyes when pollen season comes around. No problem working with hardwoods or O.S.B. sheeting. I don’t have to walk around like a doped zombie anymore. Leonard Waldner, 44, Delia, AB !Last 4 years in spring I had allergy attacks with runny nose, sore throat and headaches. Just 2 capsules Bell Allergy Relief #24 brought relief. Belinda Wilfong, 41, Hillsboro, MO ! For 20 years my life was miserable with sneezing, watery eyes and sinus pressure year-round on most days. I was amazed. On 3rd day all allergies were gone. It was like magic. Becky Gerber, 25, Dover, OH !Golfing without allergy attacks I tried all the medications and none worked. After taking 1 capsule in the morning I’m completely free of all symptoms. Richard Gamez, 74, San Antonio, TX !God bless you I went from doctor to doctor for years with allergy sinus problems. The medications made me still sicker. After starting Bell Allergy Relief one capsule at night I felt like born again the next morning. Therese Noto, 58, New York, NY.

She is very friendly and will wind around your feet to get your attention. Suno has a wound on her face that is healing nicely on it’s own and will soon be just a scar. Suno likes to hang out in her own little cubby but could live in a home with a cat that doesn’t bother her too much.

PATRIA

She can sometimes get a bit fiesty and we would recommend she go to an adult only home. Patria doesn’t seem to much care for the company of other cats and would prefer to be the only cat in the home.

KATYA

back of your mind that hopefully you can step in and play.” But for all those issues and instability, Hamill was able to turn to one of the team’s leaders in Bergeron, who has battled numerous injuries in his own career that left him fighting to earn consistent time on the team’s roster. “Everything he does is so professional and so workmanlike to the point that I try to model my work ethic after him, and try to do the things he does out on the ice. He’s such a good player,” Hamill said. “Last year, we’d sometimes go out for dinner. A couple times he even picked up the cheque. Guys like that make you feel comfortable and part of the team.” But that was then, and this is now. As a new face with the Capitals, Hamill is trying to round his game into a form that could see him play in any forward position, in any situation over the course of a game. That’s a far cry from a player who put up 178 points over his final two seasons in the Western Hockey League. And it won’t get any easier on a Capitals team expected to make a serious Stanley Cup push with the likes of forwards Alexander Ovechkin, Nicklas Backstrom and Mike Ribeiro. As current negotiations between the NHL and NHL Players’ Association reach a critical mass — resulting in the third shutdown since 1994 — Hamill has the Hershey Bears to call home. The status of contract talks doesn’t play into his focus, which is to be the best player he can be and help his team win. “It doesn’t matter if you’re looking at a skill player or a hard work type of player, they can play anywhere and in any situation. If you look at the L.A. Kings, their skilled guys are obviously skilled, but they work hard, they go to the net and they’re not just finesse players. That’s what you need these days,” Hamill said.

PoCo FC merges with Metro league mainstay John Kurucz sports@thenownews.com It’s a merger that combines clubs, history and proven talent. The PoCo FC soccer club has aligned itself with Columbus FC to create two separate teams playing out of the Fraser Valley Soccer League (FVSL) and the Metro Vancouver Soccer League (VMSL) respectively. Having put together a series of dominant runs in Fraser Valley League play — including last year’s season totals that included 31 wins and only two losses — the move represents a chance for the PoCo program to expose its considerable talent to a newer, if not better, calibre of play. “For a lot of the players that we had acquired, their desire has always been to play in the higher league, which is the Vancouver Metro Soccer League,” said long-time PoCo coach Thomas Mills. “So we’ve been working on how we go about achieving that. The next step for us, really, was to try this merger.” Established in 1953, Columbus FC is one of the more storied clubs in the Lower Mainland soccer loop regardless of league. They managed a top-four finish in league play last year, while POCo FC captured the League Cup trophy before bowing out of Provincial Cup play in the semifinals. According to Mills, who serves as coach of both sides, the two sides will act as first and second teams. The expectation for Columbus, considered the stronger team of the two, is to contend at every level possible. In the PoCo FC context, the goal is to qualify for Provincial

Cup play. “[Columbus FC] is being built to succeed. It’s not being put together just as an afterthought. There’s a plan in place to target winning the Provincial Cup and we want to send this team to the nationals.” Some of the big-ticket names on the Columbus side include Steve DeBlasio and John Poli, who are flanked by former PoCo mainstays like Milad Rahmati, Mike Gomes and Tino Cucca. The core of PoCo FC’s veteran group have remained with the FVSL side, including Jay Gagnes and Rich Norman. “It’s not a problem attracting players because we already had a group from both sides that were strong,” Mills said. “By mixing the two, there’s been a lot of people who have had to buy in to the new process because suddenly they’re not all starters. There’s only 11 starters and we’ve got 30 players.” Through two games in the early season, Columbus sits with a tie and a win. The team’s most recent contest, played on Sunday, saw Columbus down Delta United 3-1 on the weight of a pair of goals from Kaz Kikuchi and a single from Rahmati. PoCo, on the other hand, opened up the year with a 4-0 loss, the club’s first regular season defeat in two years. The team did rebound last weekend, however, with a 3-1 win over SFC Temple United. The Coquitlam Metro-Ford Wolves, on the other hand, dropped their most recent contest 3-1 to the Sapperton Rovers and now sit with a loss and a tie on the year. The winless Port Moody Gunners have dropped two straight to begin the season, with their most recent loss — a 3-0 decision against North Delta — taking place on Sunday.
