’Staches back in fashion

Crash leads to charges Mismatched licence plates attract police

John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Eagle-eyed Coquitlam Mounties are being credited for catching a suspected car thief. Two members of the detachment’s prolific target team (PTT) were patrolling the 3600 block of Oxford Street in PoCo on Nov. 6 when they came across a suspicious vehicle. The blue Volkswagen Passat had mismatched licence plates. When police tried to pull over the driver, the car sped off. The cruiser didn’t pursue, police say, but officers kept an eye on the car from a distance. A short time later, the driver crashed into another car near the intersection of Pinetree Way and Lougheed Highway. The suspect ran off, but was quickly arrested without incident. The crash was minor in nature. Andrew Marlow, 31, of Surrey is facing 17 charges, including nine for failing to comply, three for possession of stolen property, two for possession of a weapon, and single charges for possession of break-in instruments, flight from police and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. He will remain in custody until his next court appearance on Nov. 30. The RCMP’s PTT is a team of investigators that focuses on three areas of crime reduction: prolific offenders, crime hot spots and crime causation.

Coquitlam firefighters growing mustaches for Movember include Kevin Powell, left, Kevin Zemenchik, Curtis Roussel, David Fisher, John Olson and Lt. Dean Robson, all based out of the Mariner fire hall. This photo was shot on Nov. 8, just a week into their facial-hair endeavours.

The lip tickler and the soup strainer are in vogue this month, as organizations and individuals align themselves with Movember fundraising efforts. Each November, thousands of men grow mustaches to raise awareness of, and funds for, men’s health initiatives, especially prostate cancer and mental health. Coquitlam firefighters are in the process of grooming their upper lip plumage, and will donate their pledges to the Coquitlam Firefighters Charitable Society. Coquitlam Mounties are also getting in on the Movember movement. Twenty-plus officers from the local detachment are growing their best moustaches to raise money for cancer research. Last year, the group raised more than $13,000 and finished second nationally among all police teams for fundraising. Go to http://ca.movember. com/team/531753 to donate or see interesting pictures of their Mo’s. Douglas College players who competed last weekend for the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association’s (CCAA) national soccer championships are also growing their facial hair in partnership with the Movember Canada movement. “We really wanted to build in a community-involvement aspect to the championship,” Kyle Baillie, director of the centre for campus life and athletics at Douglas College, said in a press release. “We haven’t seen a partnership like this before in the CCAA, so we thought it was fun, relevant and something the players could get behind.” Another Movember event is slated for later this month. The second-annual Crumb Savers Movember Party will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 24 at the Treehouse Neighbourhood Pub in PoCo. The party will include costumes, moustache-grooming tips and prizes for Best Mo in Character, Miss Movember and the 2012 Man of Movember. Tickets cost $20 in advance and $25 at the door, and can be purchased by emailing info@livingsimplicity.ca.

Business aims to rebuild after fire Insurance agency plans to build a new office in the same location on Austin Avenue Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

T

here may be no one who can better understand what storm-battered residents on the east coast are going through than Peter Meegan. Two months ago, the family business, Mary Ann Meegan Insurance Agency Ltd. and a Re/Max real estate office, went up in flames in Coquitlam. Since that devastating night on Sept. 6, Meegan has been painstakingly putting back the pieces of a successful 40-year business. “Your head is all scrambled when it first happens,” he told The NOW, noting TV coverage of residents coping after massive storm Sandy has been a reminder of the initial days following the fire. “You’ve got to try and think of who do I call, what do I do?” The spectacular fire gutted the more than 40-year-old building on Austin Avenue. The blaze proved to be one of the more difficult fires of the year for Coquitlam Fire and Rescue. At one point, 12 rescue vehicles and more than 50 firefighting personnel were involved in fighting it. A preliminary investigation at the time determined the cause of the fire to be electrical. But as Meegan quickly discovered, the human condition has a way of triumphing over hardship and tragedy. In the days that followed, the venerable insurance company set up shop across the street. Clients and friends of the wellknown family streamed in to offer hugs, cookies, support and whatever else they could. They were touching gestures the family appreciated. “We’re getting there,” Meegan said

Lisa King/NOW

Mary Ann Meegan, founder of an insurance agency on Austin Avenue, is looking forward to reopening. of the progress to rebuild. “It’s a big job when somebody loses their business; people have no idea.” The fire virtually destroyed every document related to the business, other than his mom Mary’s birth certificate and Canadian citizenship papers. The exact cost of the fire still hasn’t been determined. Meegan also lamented the slow process of wading through the bureaucracy for business services like a post

office box or telephone lines. While the family is busy getting the business back up off the ground, there is an eye toward the future. Meegan said he has every intention to build a new office in the same spot where the old one was lost. The city has been pushing for redevelopment along Austin, and any new building would likely be part of that strategy. He said he envisions a professional building dedicated to his mother

Mary as a legacy, though he has no timetable for when any plans would be finalized. He described the process at City Hall as slow. “I belong on the other side of the street,” he said. “I’m going back. It’s just a matter of when.” Just as the fire shut down Austin Avenue, Meegan vows to do the same. But the next time it will be for a grand opening of a new Mary Ann Meegan Insurance Agency.

They’re practically everywhere, but you probably don’t even notice them. Invasive plants have become a scourge throughout the Lower Mainland, and Port Moody is not immune. Now a local group is hoping to push City Hall into taking action against the dreaded weeds. On Tuesday, the Moody Centre Community Association asked council

to consider ways of removing and managing invasive plants in the city, which could include a bylaw. Association president Wendy Swalwell suggested the plants, specifically the Japanese knotweed, have already infiltrated the city. The group presented a slideshow to council noting a number of places around the city where invasive weeds have taken over, including clear-cut lots slated for future development. “Until you know what an

invasive plant is, you don’t realize it’s all around you,” Swalwell told The NOW. Specifically, the association is asking the city to step in with an education program to bring awareness to the issue, monitor empty lots to ensure the weeds aren’t spreading to neighbouring properties, and allow for the use of a herbicide that can be injected into the weed along with instructions and guidelines for its use. The city banned the use of cosmetic pesticides several

years ago. As for a bylaw, Swalwell acknowledged enforcement would be difficult, noting other municipalities have tried to do so with limited success, partly because the plants have already taken over. She is hoping for some kind of action from the city. A staff report related to the request is expected to make its way to council in the coming weeks. Japanese knotweed, also called false bamboo, can grow more than two metres a year

and was first exported from Japan as an ornamental plant that could provide fence-like cover and flourish with little care. The plant has been known to choke off the banks of waterways to native plant species and grow through the foundations of houses, causing headaches for homeowners. In the meantime, Metro Vancouver is considering a regional strategy to deal with invasive species. — with files from the Vancouver Sun

Shaugnessy near David Avenue and Lodge Drive was shut down for a time while police investigated. RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said no charges have been laid, but investigators believe speed was a factor in the incident. The road was also wet at the time of the crash, and the scene was near a major curve. “If you’re going too fast, you’re not going to be able to make the curve,” Chung said, adding it was lucky no other cars were involved. The vehicle was totalled in the crash.

Man charged in robbery Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com A Coquitlam man will be making an appearance in court for allegedly taking part in a jewelry store robbery in Richmond earlier this month. Keith Macdonald, 32, of Coquitlam has been charged with armed robbery and possession of a prohibited or restricted firearm. According to Richmond RCMP, two suspects walked

into the Ben Moss Jewellers at Richmond Centre Mall on Nov. 6 and smashed the display cases. They fled with an undisclosed amount of jewelry. Once outside, one of the suspects, armed with a gun, tried to carjack a vehicle but failed. When the robber tried to carjack a second vehicle, bystanders stopped him. A scuffle ensued, leading to a shot being fired. However, no one was hit and the suspect was held until

police arrived. Two other suspects were later found and arrested by officers from the Vancouver Police Department. The two men, Ty Burgess, 29, of Vancouver and Shane Buckner, 36, of Mission, are charged with armed robbery and wearing a disguise with the intent to commit an indictable offence. All three men will be in court on Nov. 19. twitter.com/ jercoquitlamnow

Bus changes planned Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Changes are coming to the 2013 bus schedule in the Tri-Cities. And residents will get their say on the proposed changes at an upcoming open house hosted by TransLink. The transportation authority is considering what it called “service optimization,” which essentially is the process of reallocating bus service hours from areas of low productivity to where demand is higher. The public consultation period runs from Nov. 19 to Dec. 13. The open house is scheduled for Wednesday (Nov. 21) in Coquitlam from 4 to 7:30 p.m. at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in the Studio Theatre. According to TransLink’s website, proposed

route changes being discussed at this open house include: • C24 Service refinement: Reroute via Robinson and Foster to improve coverage and reduce duplication • C29/C30/C38 Service refinements: Reroute services near Coquitlam Centre to improve directness and reliability • 153 Service refinement: Reroute via Schoolhouse Street to expand network coverage and reduce duplication • 159/177 Service redesign: Combine routes and discontinue service on low-demand segments • 179/189 Service redesign: Discontinue existing service and replace with new 188 David Avenue Coast Meridian On Tuesday, TransLink announced a fare increase set for Jan. 1, which will see an increase of 10 per cent, or 25 cents for a onezone adult bus fare.

Anyone constructing or renovating a building in PoCo has until 4 p.m. on Dec. 19 to submit building permit applications before B.C.’s new building, plumbing and fire codes kick in, the city said in a press release issued Thursday. The introduction of the 2012 BC Building Code, Plumbing Code and Fire Code on Dec. 20 will bring a number of changes for new construction and building alterations, as well as fire safety in new and existing buildings. Changes include: • Seismic requirements for new homes, • Requirement for a smoke alarm in every bedroom, • Ability for people with cognitive or physical limitations to occupy three-storey wood-frame buildings with sprinklers, • New method for sizing water pipes in buildings, • Ability for rainwater to be collected and used in non-potable water systems, • Updated fire sprinkler standards, and • Introduction of a new exit sign symbol (the running man symbol). For more information visit www.portcoquitlam.ca/building.

Clay said David Avenue would need to be extended to make it work, adding the road was designed with the possibility of it being extended. “It’s a whole new city almost. It’s going to be a really big process,” he said. However, Clay said it’s good for residents to know the lands may be considered for redevelopment one day.

Opinion About Us

THE NOW is published by the Coquitlam Now, a division of LMP Publication Ltd. Partnership.

GLACIER MEDIA GROUP Our offices are located at 201A-3430 Brighton Avenue, Burnaby, British Columbia, V5A 3H4 Regional Publisher Brad Alden Publisher Derrick Chamberlain

Let’s vote on school land sales We have all had the chance to hear about the funding shortfalls for School District 43. The millions that could be raised by selling off public school property could go a long ways in making many repairs needed for existing schools and school programs. But the millions made by selling lands off could be used up in a blink of an eye when divided up by all the buildings, lands, programs and To The payrolls. The hundreds of millions needed for new schools will not come from such sales. That rests in the hands of the provincial government that has drained its pockets on projects such as the Port Mann Bridge. If the district sells off some land and makes a few million, what’s to stop the provincial

government from subtracting that money from their hundreds of millions in funding because they are billions in deficit? This is just more of the political foolishness we have to live with every day in B.C. and Canada. The selling off of public lands by school districts, then sanctioning by city rezoning and condoned by our provincial government, should not occur withEditor out a mandate from the citizens first. I know I would want to see these green spaces saved for the future. Should these lands be developed because our governments have gone billions into debt from poor planning?

Our View

We can’t allow our cities to crumble

T

his week, Canada’s municipalities called on Ottawa to hatch a long-term plan to fix the country’s aging infrastructure. Given that the plea coincided with a $5-billion bump in this year’s federal deficit projection, they — and we — are probably out of luck, but the idea shouldn’t be discarded. Reliable infrastructure is vital to any community’s well-being. Without good roads, bridges, sewers and transit systems, cities suffer economically, socially and in terms of health. Unfortunately, good infrastructure requires constant investment of a kind that has little political payoff. While a shiny new bridge or transit line may wow an electorate, few voters are inspired by the expensive and mundane business of keeping those baubles up to par. As a result, the past several decades have seen a steady decline in the quality of infrastructure across the country, as governments at every level put off again and again all but the most urgently needed upgrades and replacements. Now, with the problem coming to a head, municipalities have sounded the alarm, begging Ottawa to commit to a 20-year plan that would see federal investment rise to $5.75 billion a year — a sum that would be attached by provinces and municipalities. Only the most ardent optimists will expect the federal government to agree to that right now, but Ottawa should seriously consider the proposal when our country finally claws its way out of the current slump. Only then will we break the cycle of neglect that is allowing our cities to crumble. — Guest editorial from the North Shore News

My View

lated spending cap under that province’s rules? Fiftyfour cents per voter. Moore had eight donors who gave more than $1,000 and who together accounted for 70 per cent of the $30,150 his campaign raised. Ruff’s point about “being listened to” should also hit home with ratepayers when they consider that there’s nothing that prevents a mayor or councillor from voting on a municipal bylaw or zoning change that benefit one of their donors, as the B.C. Court of Appeal ruled in 2001. In 1997, then-Nanaimo city councillor Mr. William King voted in favour of matters that benefited a development known as Northridge Village. King had no financial stake in the project. A few months later, Nanaimo council declared his seat vacant because of his failure to report a $1,000 campaign donation from Northridge. The Court of Appeal upheld King’s position, with Mr. Justice Esson writing: “There is no evidence of a direct pecuniary interest in the sense that he agreed to vote for these projects in return for their campaign contribution of $1,000.00.” So if no direct quid pro quo can be proven, councillors are free to vote as they please when it comes to matters involving their donors. But its that very fear of nudge nudge, wink wink relations between donors who can’t vote and local councillors who can later cast votes that benefit those donors that leaves many ratepayers increasingly wondering: who really holds the keys to City Hall? Dermod Travis is the executive director of IntegrityBC.

Letters Conservatives have put salmon stocks in danger The Cohen Commission Report was recently tabled in the House of Commons. This report paints an incredibly dismal picture of the Conservative government’s handling not only of British Columbia’s iconic sockeye salmon, but all of Canada’s fisheries. On top of Justice Cohen’s 75 recommendations to improve the chances for sockeye survival, he also dedicates much of his report to lamenting the recent decision by the Conservatives to gut the protection of fish habitat from the Fisheries Act in their spring omnibus budget bill. The Fisheries Act changes are made all the more serious considering how much of the Cohen Report is dedicated to the importance of improving rather than eliminating the protection of fish habitat in order to ensure the future survival of the sockeye. Justice Cohen states that “if current trends persist, there will be a significant decline in the productive capacity of Fraser River sockeye habitat.” If the Conservative government does not immediately change course, current trends will not only persist, they will accelerate. This government has not just eliminated federal protection of fish habitat, they have fired one

According to Justice Cohen, some of the most harmful environmental effects on the sockeye are contaminants and algal blooms. Much of To The the research in these areas was done by DFO’s Contaminants Program and at the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) in northwestern Ontario, yet these programs have been axed by the Harper Conservatives. Eliminating the Contaminants

program involved firing 75 DFO scientists, many of whom were based at the Institute of Ocean Sciences in Victoria. The ELA is Canada’s flagship environmental research centre, which was run on an annual budget Editor roughly equal to that of one Conservative cabinet minister’s office. These measures are clearly not about saving taxpayers’ dollars; they are based purely on an extreme anti-science ideology. I recently moved a motion in the House of Commons

Committee on Fisheries and Oceans to study the Cohen Report and bring Justice Cohen forward as a witness. Unfortunately, the Conservatives moved the meeting in secret and my motion is no longer on the agenda. This kind of thing is becoming far too common in Ottawa. There are many serious factors that need to be addressed to ensure a positive future for all of Canada’s fisheries, including the iconic sockeye. Action must be taken and strong decisions must be made. The Conservatives can start by reversing their changes to the Fisheries Act and their devastating cuts to DFO such as the Contaminants program and the ELA. They must commit to begin implementing the recommendations found in Justice Cohen’s report. If these changes do not take place, the blindly ideological path this government has taken since they achieved majority status will prove disastrous for the sockeye, for fish habitat, for our environment and for all of Canada’s fisheries.

A four-year cycle spanning thousands of kilometres will come to an end Sunday, as hundreds of spawning salmon will be front and centre at the Hyde Creek Salmon Festival. Now in its 13th year, the PoCo event highlights all things aquatic, and focuses on education, ecology and conservation against a backdrop of scores of salmon returning to the creek to spawn. And according to Hyde Creek Watershed Society director Jean Peachman, this year’s run of chum salmon has been particularly healthy. “The chum this year are very large, and it has been a big run,” she said. “And we’re hearing that from other hatcheries around B.C. Four years ago, something was really good in the ocean in terms of their feeding.” Some of the events on tap for the festival include interactive environmental displays and exhibits, including live owls, a vulture and marine life. Representatives from Fisheries and Oceans Canada will also present three in-stream salmon demonstrations, while Lions Club members will be serving up salmon burgers and salmon chowder. The popular children’s entertainer known as the TaDa Lady will roll out the Nylon Zoo — a giant inflatable fish — and employees from the Home Depot will be on hand to help kids build their own bird houses.

Fitness gym memberships, guided helicopter tours and a return trip to Whistler via the Rocky Moutaineer train. And then there’s the sight of hundreds of fish living out their last days in the creek, a visual that is particularly gripping for people from locales other than Western Canada. “They are just blown away because it’s not what they’ve seen in their own countries,” Peachman said. “It’s not something you would see anywhere except probably here in British Columbia. It’s truly amazing.” The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at both the Hyde Creek Recreation Centre, located at 1379 Laurier Ave., and the Hyde Creek Education Centre and Hatchery, at 3636 Coast Meridian Rd.

Partial proceeds from the marathon event will be donated to the Port Coquitlam-based Learning Disabilities Association. “It’s a good format for raising money,” said Myers, who serves as both owner and artistic

The BC SPCA is offering pet owners a series of tips to ensure health and safety in winter.

ADOPT-A-PET MISSY

MOZEY

• ANIMAL: DOG • BREED: PIT BULL MIX • SEX: SPAYED FEMALE• AGE: ADULT Missy is an affectionate girl who’s likely around 23 years old. She’s a very happy and energetic dog who needs an active family. Missy would excel at dog sports such as agility as she’s extremely agile and energetic. Missy gets along well with most dogs, but would need to be properly introduced to any dogs in the home prior to adoption. Her prey drive is high so would need a home without cats.

LUCY

• ANIMAL: DOG

• BREED: SHEPHERD MIX • SEX: SPAYED FEMALE• AGE: ADULT

• BREED: RETRIEVER X SHEPHERD • SEX: SPAYED FEMALE• AGE: ADULT

Mozey is a sweet girl who isn’t nearly as old as she appears at first glance. Give her a stuffed toy and she turns into a puppy!! Mozey can be a bit shy with new people but warms up quickly (and is easily bribed with treats). Mozey is selective about other dogs and might be best as the only dog in the home. Mozey is polite and doesn’t jump up and sits when told. She doesn’t seem to know much else when it comes to basic obedience, but could learn easily.We would recommend training with her new family to help create a solid bond and fine tune her obedience.

Lucy is a ball of energy and happiness! She will need an active family to keep her both physically and mentally busy. Lucy can be a bit rude and jump up on you, and staff is working on correcting this behaviour. Lucy is well behaved otherwise and knows Sit and Down. We would recommend some basic obedience classes to help work on her manners and create a bond with her new family. Lucy would be best as the only dog in the home currently as she is working on her dog skills.We would recommend continuing with a professional trainer after adoption to help her learn to interact properly with other dogs

LUCY & ETHEL • ANIMAL: RABBIT

• SEX: SPAYED FEMALE• AGE: ADULT Lucy and Ethel were found in a cage together in a local neighborhood. The girls have obviously lived together for a long time and are quite bonded. They must go to their new home together. They are friendly, sometimes a little nervous, and would need a large inside enclosure.

LENNY

SUMMER

• ANIMAL: CAT

• ANIMAL: CAT

• BREED: DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR • SEX: SPAYED FEMALE• AGE: ADULT Summer is a sweet girl who was returned to us after almost 10 years because her family was moving. Poor Summer had a tough time adjusting, and who could blame her! Summer now comes out of her tree with a meow and looking for a snuggle. She is very affectionate and loves when someone sits and spends some quality time with her. Summer isn’t too thrilled about all the other cats, but might be okay in a home with just one who gives her some space.

• BREED: DOMESTIC MEDIUM HAIR • SEX: NEUTERED MALE• AGE: ADULT Lenny is a sweet and handsome older gent. It appears that he is vision impaired, but can still get around fairly well. He still seems a bit confused by this new enviroment and we are letting him settle in slowly. Lenny is quiet and affectionate with a cute little meow. Lenny would love to find a quiet home where he can relax and lounge on a comfy couch. Lenny seems to be okay with the other cats, and would do well in a home that has a cat with a similar temperment.

A NEW APPROACH: Vancity has opened its first “living labs” in two B.C. branches, including the Shaughnessy Station Community Branch in PoCo. At left, branch manager Jenn Fahey and Regan Williams, director of sales for Total Green, show off a new area called “the Gift,” which allows local merchants and not-for-profits to advertise their services free of charge. According to a press release, the living lab approach aims to transform the branch into a community hub that provides “an integrated offering of dayto-day financial services, business banking expertise and wealth management services.” Innovative features include the Community Stage (free meeting room space) and the Think Tank, which allows members, not-for-profits and businesses to brainstorm. The redesigned branch is located at 7100-2850 Shaughnessy St. in Port Coquitlam.

Burger war heats up The gourmet burger market just got a bit bigger in the Tri-Cities. A Vera’s Burger Shack recently opened up in Port Moody’s Newport Village, offering another local option for quality meats after the area’s first Fatburger opened in Coquitlam in midOctober. The Port Moody shop, located at 254A Newport Dr., is the company’s 17th location in Metro Vancouver. “We’ve been busy pretty much every day except for Thanksgiving,” said store manager Cody Phelan. “We’re already an established name, so that

definitely helps. “This area in Port Moody, we’ve got a lot of people living in the buildings surrounding us, so it’s the perfect kind of thing for lunches or dinners especially.” Voted “Best Burger in Vancouver” in the Georgia Straight’s annual readers’ poll for nine straight years, the company’s slogan is “You Can’t Beat Vera’s Meat.” “Our slogan speaks for itself,” Phelan said. “But you really can’t beat our quality. With our patties, we make them every day.” Vera’s Burger Shack is open from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.

European-like handling provided immense driving pleasure for a SUV, but this dynamic package did not deliver as much “luxury value” to traditional, upscale SUV customers who were more drawn to softer, smoother riding vehicles such as the Lexus RX 350. For 2013, Acura decided that it was time for it to become “more mature.” The redesigned 2013 RDX features refinements to every aspect to the vehicle. The exterior lines are softer, the interior is more plush,

GUIDE

Acura’s new RDX improves upon highway and city mileage used in the Acura lineup. It’s mated to a new six-speed automatic transmission which gets 10.7L/100km in the city and 7.3L/100km on the highway, which is a vast improvement over the 2012 number; 12.4L/100km city, 9.8L/100km highway. The new V6 is much more refined cruising around town and handles highway curves comfortably, though it does not have the sportiness of the previous model. The suspension is softer and smoother, but the only disappointment is the steering feel, which — while accurate in its ability to track the road — is light and somewhat artificial.

Thumbs down

The changes to the engine

and transmission may be welcome, but the new electric steering lacks feedback.

The bottom line

The new RDX represents a

marked improvement over the previous model. It now represents a great

“luxury value” that could really hurt the competitors’ sales.

Environment

Even though the actual amount of added interior space is not that much, the interior feels more spacious. The spacy feel is consistent throughout, as legroom and headroom is plentiful for the average adult in the rear seats. While the luxuries are nice, the RDX is still a functional SUV and needs to fulfill the utility portion of the title. The rear door opens high, offering sufficient head clearance, and the 739 litres of cargo space allows you to carry more than average SUVs in this category. The rear seats split 60/40 and fold down to increase the space to 2,178 litres.

FOCUS ON JOBS Innovation aids BC exports

Vancouver high-tech workers and Interior loggers share in B.C.’s emphasis on innovation, trade and job creation By Frank O’Brien

F

rom a high-tech sector that has spawned 17 of the fastest-growing technology companies in North America, to sawmills expor!ng record lumber volumes to Asia, B.C.’s sustained focus on innova!on and trade is paying off where it counts – in jobs. B.C.’s tech industry Investment in research will create up and infrastructure, provincial tax credits for to 4,000 jobs cu#ng-edge technology this year development and low tax rates have helped make B.C. a magnet for skilled workers from around the world. And, in so doing, create an es!mated 84,000 jobs in the tech sector, explains B.C. Jobs Minister Pat Bell. B.C.’s tech industry will create up to 4,000 jobs this year and, by 2014, 100,000 high-tech employees will be needed, according to the BC Technology Industry Associa!on’s 2012 TechTalent B.C. report. Today, technology-related companies account for nearly six per cent of B.C.’s gross domes!c product.

Lumber to Asia The $500 million BC Jobs Plan is a comprehensive new ini!a!ve that includes skills training, efforts to

Red Nose volunteers needed With the help of red-vested volunteers driving throughout the Tri-Cities, Operation Red Nose is preparing to make roads safer this holiday season beginning on Friday, Nov. 30 and continuing on Dec. 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and New Year’s Eve. Celebrating six years in the Tri-Cities, Operation Red Nose volunteers will be taking impaired drivers home in their own vehicles with all donations once again going to KidSport. “Volunteers are the heart and soul of Operation Red Nose and this is such a success story. Last year we had 139 volunteers in our community and gave almost 600 rides,” Tri-City coordinator Chris Wilson said in a press release. “As amazing as that was, we’re still looking for more help. As the awareness grows, the need for more volunteers grows too.” Operation Red Nose volunteers drive impaired drivers and their vehicles to wherever they need to go. The service is free, but donations to KidSport are encouraged. “The main focus is getting people home safely, but we have a very generous com-

munity,” Wilson said. “Last year, our average donation was over $30, which was the highest in the province.” Volunteers come from all walks of life and include the mayors and some city councillors from all three Tri-Cities municipalities. “We have everyone from 19 year olds to 78 year olds and everyone in between,” Wilson said. “It’s a lot of fun, you meet some great people and you have the satisfaction of getting people home safely and helping KidSport. How often can you help two great causes at the same time?” Volunteers work in teams of three with two driving the client in the client’s vehicle and the third following behind in their vehicle. “This makes it safe for everyone,” Wilson said. “It’s also fun because you can volunteer with friends or we’ll create a team for you.” New this year, the Tri-Cities organizing committee is taking on Burnaby and New Westminster too. According to Wilson, “We were getting so many calls from Burnaby and New West, but the program wasn’t operating there, so after the campaign last year, we decided

to partner with the KidSport chapters in those communities and expand.” Volunteers are asked to fill out a simple application form and have a criminal record check done. Anyone interested is encouraged to e-mail orn@ shaw.ca or visit www. OperationRedNose.com. Operation Red Nose relies solely on volunteers who care about their communities and want to help and have a little

fun during the holiday season. Last year, 4,241 volunteers provided 7,716 rides with 12 host groups serving more than 23 communities in B.C. — and they drove 188,000 kilometres to help people get themselves and their vehicles home safely. After starting with just two host groups back in 1996, Operation Red Nose continued to grow and it has now provided a total of 57,504 safe rides home in B.C.

AWARD WINNERS: MP James Moore, left, joins Malcolm Kennedy and Cathleen Redman at the Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club on Tuesday night for the presentation of Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee medals. A total of 20 Tri-Cities residents were honoured at the ceremony. The Diamond Jubilee medal commemorates the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s ascension to the throne, and honours significant contributions and achievements by Canadians. Redman is a Riverside Secondary student who received the City of Port Coquitlam’s U21 (youth under 21) award for community involvement last April. She has volunteered with a variety of children’s programs and camps at the Hyde Creek Recreation Centre, and helped Rotarians paint a women’s resource centre. She also led the recycling group at her school and served on the student leadership council. Kennedy was honoured for his volunteer work with Festival Coquitlam, the Coquitlam Kinsmen Club and the Rotary Club of Coquitlam Sunrise. A total of 60,000 Diamond Jubilee medals are being handed out across Canada during 2012.

Stars shine in Valley final showdown Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Last year’s tough defeat has proved fodder for this year’s incredible win — with hopefully more to follow. The Archbishop Carney Stars have their sights set on a provincial top-three finish, after acing the Fraser Valley AA senior boys soccer championships with a 5-0 trouncing of Aldergrove last Thursday. Anchored by strong veteran leadership and a 19-player roster that rolled up its sleeves, the Stars grabbed an early lead on Mike North’s marker 10 minutes into the game. They kept up the pressure but weren’t able to add to it until the second half, when they poured it on late. North and Jorge Brizuella both counted twice, with Steve Porcellato adding a single. “The boys had been playing as a team all season and we focused on that,” noted Carney coach Mate Zvicer. “We made sure everyone knew their role and to keep playing as a team, to worry about things in their circle of control and forgot about the rest.” “I think that the thirst It was the to win is something third straight that the Port most of these guys are year Coquitlam private born with.” school had made it to the AA Fraser Valley final. It turned out to be a perfect circle Mate Zvicer at the Valleys, Archbishop Carney coach as the squad defeated Sands 3-0 and Abbotsford Traditional 5-2 to advance to the final. In the game against Abby Traditional, the Stars trailed at halftime but scored two times to take a temporary lead. Abby rallied and forced extra time, but the Stars stormed out and scored three times to earn a berth to the B.C.s and a spot in the Valley final. A veteran core has been the driving force all season, Zvicer said. “These guys play as a team and want to win for each other. They also love to win and expect so much from themselves, I think that the thirst to win is something most of these guys are born with.” Leading the way are Bryan Cadman, Anthony Martin and Alex Dalla Zanna, each of whom plays a big role in inspiring and firing up their teammates. Their lone loss came in the second game of the regular season, 1-0 to Thomas Haney, and was quickly turned into a learning experience. Carney outscored its competition 49-5 during league play. At the B.C. Catholic championships, the Stars projected a disciplined purpose in pursuit of the title, prevailing 1-0 over Notre Dame for the crown. If they can continue that tempo at next week’s provincials, which start Monday at Burnaby West complex, the Stars should be able to improve upon last season’s fifth-place showing. “We have been in some tough spots this season and they have been able to pull through using their experience,” Zvicer added. “Their soccer sense and calmness on the ball is so hard to teach, it comes with all the knowledge they are able to gain and hold onto playing in so many situations.” Carney opens the provincials Monday 11 a.m. against D.P. Todd at Burnaby West. They also play

Locals celebrate national soccer championships Paul Clerc, Sarah Hannigan, Navid Mashinchi, Richard Meister, Milad Mehrabi, Tyler Mertens and Kristen Santema have something to celebrate. The seven local products were part of two separate national championships last week, as Clerc, Mashinichi, Meister, Mehrabi and Mertens helped the University of B.C. Thunderbirds collect the men’s Canadian Interuniversity Sport soccer title with a 1-0 victory over the Cape Breton Capers in Quebec City. Hannigan and Santema, meanwhile, were part of the Trinity Western University Spartans’ 1-0 penalty kick win over the Queen’s Gaels in the CIS women’s championship final in Victoria. Fifth-year goalkeeper Kristen Funk stymied the Gaels shooters in the shootout, stopping Jessie De Boer’s shot. For her efforts, the first team all-Canadian all star was named player of the game. “I think our nerves caused us to play a little bit out of how we normally play, but credit to my kids for hanging in there,” Trinity Western coach Graham Roxburgh said after wrapping up his fourth CIS women’s title. Both Hannigan, of Anmore, and Santema, of Coquitlam, are in their third year with the Spartans. Earning a position on the tourney all-star team was University of Victoria Vikings’ Jaclyn Sawicki, a Coquitlam native and member of Canada’s under-20 squad. UVic finished the tourney in third place. The T-birds’ triumph, meanwhile, capped a perfect season where the Point Grey men’s program stormed into the championship series undefeated, and proceeded to outscore the opposition 8-0 over three games. “I’m really proud of my boys and the way they battled today and throughout this tournament. History was made today, as we were undefeated this season. It’s a real pleasure to work with this group,” UBC head coach Mike Mosher said. A third-year fullback who was earlier selected to the Canada West all-star squad, Clerc was named a CIS championship all star. Clerc and Mehrabi are Coquitlam products, while Mertens is from PoCo. Mashinchi and Meister both hale from Port Moody. Teammate Gagandeep Dosanjh, a forward, was selected the tourney’s MVP.

The pre-novice dance team of Olga Kubliy and Thomas Bogdanov led the way for a strong Coquitlam Skating Club result at the B.C./Yukon Territories Sectional Figure Skating championships last week in Parksville. Kubliy and Bodanov combined to post a division-leading 51.65 points. In the senior women’s division, Larissa Horobec put down terrific skates in both the short and free program to finish second overall. The teen scored 33.46 in short and 62.04 in free for a total of 95.50, less than two points back of Jacqueline Lenuik of Terrace. Horobec’s score earned her the 2013 Senior Women’s B.C. Coast Region championship title. In third place was Coquitlam’s Rebecca Hayman, who scored 33.72 in short and 46.15 in free for a total of 79.87. Graeme Gordon notched the third-best score in senior men’s competition, with 48 points in short and 97.36 in free (145.36). In pre-novice men’s results, Benjamin Papp placed third by registering 22.82 points in short and 40.44 in free (63.26), while fellow CSC skater Kelvin Koon finished fourth overall with scores of 22.13 and 37.33 (59.46). Also posting strong results were pre-novice women Hannah Lam (13th) and Brittney McKenzie-Cook (17th), juvenile women Alexandra Canning (2nd in group 1) and Kate Choi (sixth in group 2) and juvenile men’s Cayden McKenzie-Cook (5th).

The defence put on a clinic, setting the tone in the Coquitlam Wildcats’ 16-0 shutout win over the defending peewee champion North Delta Longhorns last week in the opening round of the VMFL peewee playoffs. The defensive line of Stephen Bowers, Michael Evans, Uriah Hesdalen, Mathew Hewabadegge and Liam Stewart was in full-deny mode as they held North Delta to limited yardage all game long. The secondary of Cole Kashino, Kieran Little and Jamal Mensah delivered drive-halting tackles. Mensah would also score the game’s first touchdown on a 40-yard run in the first quarter, and added some insurance late in the game.

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of pleasure, beauty, charming children and romance comes to an end midweek (Tuesday to Thursday) – a gentle end, filled with understanding – and a deeper or higher love. Wednesday begins a month of work, duties, dependents’ care, health and nutrition factors. But DO NOT start any new projects/tasks, relationships or ventures before Nov. 26. Mysteries, clues, research – and financial or sexual consequences – arise Sunday/Monday. Be wary of making a commitment. Thursday night to Saturday piques your ambition and brings situations of status, prestige. Careful Friday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start no new projects nor relationships before Nov. 26. A month of domestic, realty,security,retirement,foundational and nutritional concerns yields, Wednesday, to a month of romance, pleasure, beauty, expansion, self-expression, speculation and venturesome risk. Take those risks – you’ll be on a four-week winning streak. (But read the first sentence again.) Sunday/Monday brings relationships, co-operation or challenge (luckiest Sunday eve/night). Midweek cracks open the door to mystery – and golden answers. Wisdom, gentle love, far travel and education arrive late week. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A busy month ends Wednesday, and a slow, restorative, relaxing, domestic month begins. However, start nothing new before Nov. 26. This week might disrupt your investments or bank account (Thursday/Friday) – there is both an opportunity (before 7:30 p.m. Thursday) and a danger here (7:30 p.m. to Friday morning). Tackle chores Sunday/Monday – success and frustrations mingle. Relationships face you Tuesday to Thursday – this interval is almost wholly good, even magical, but deception or miscalculation is possible where home, family or residence enters. Finances, sex late week.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: You change focus midweek, from curiosity to understanding, from secrets and research to “knowing.” Your philosophical, compassionate, “we are one” side lifts you to new heights of understanding, new gentle regions of insight. A love affair might lie on the near-term horizon. Travel, education, law or media are strongly favoured late week into late December – these pursuits might lead you to a new affair. Sunday/Monday are hopeful, friendly – you’re happy. Retreat, rest and contemplate midweek. Your energy and charisma soar Thursday eve onward. Start NOTHING new this week. Taurus April 20-May 20: Midweek’s the pivot: on Wednesday you slowly turn from surface relationships to deep, committed ones, or to a split. It’s an all-ornothing time. Luck occurs if you view “secondary results,” follow clues, and patch together events/ options. This applies especially in areas of intimacy, sexual desire, finances and partnership money, health diagnoses, research and lifestyle change. E.g., an investment might not be obvious, but if you look at what you already possess, or the industry that signs your paycheque, you find a good investment. Wishes come true midweek. Start NOTHING new. Gemini May 21-June 20: One last week of delay, potential mistakes and wrong directions or false starts. Start nothing new before Nov. 26. The focus of your days changes midweek, from a past month of work, boredom, and health concerns, to the weeks ahead, which hold new horizons, opportunities, exciting meetings and new faces, relocation potentials, negotiations, contracts, dealings with the public, and “fame.” Sunday/Monday are wise, loving, intellectual. Be ambitious, dutiful Tuesday/Wednesday – you are starting to sense your “new career.” Wish fulfillment, popularity, flirtations late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of money matters and sensual attractions ends Wednesday. The new month will feature paperwork, reports, errands, media and mail projects, travel, casual friends and siblings. There are no huge stakes – so be busy but relaxed. An opportunity can arise to travel afar, be published, teach or attend higher learning, win a lawsuit, or fall in love, even wed. But listen. Libra: start NOTHING before Nov. 26. Until then, till the field of the past. Sunday/Monday are romantic, accent pleasure. Midweek brings chores. Relationships, new horizons intrigue late week – be careful. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy remains high, but the accent shifts now from your personal concerns to your money and possessions. In the weeks ahead, chase new clients, seek a pay raise, buy/sell, and pursue, if you dare, a sensual person. (Daring will be the least requirement early: this is a friendly, polite, easy link. The daring part is being sure enough about your future and your desires to commit to this easy, but perhaps mild, bond.) DON’T start anything new before Nov. 26. Early week is for home. Tuesday-Thursday is romantic, creative. Work, health late week – caution Friday morn. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Start nothing new before Nov. 26. Wednesday ends a month of weariness, health concerns, weighty chores and low charisma. The weeks ahead feature high energy, clout, magnetism and effectiveness. Call in markers, seek favours, start significant projects (NOT before the 26th). Launch yourself toward a person, partnership, faraway place, fame, public dealings, negotiations, contracts and agreements. Your luck and progress will come through another (others generally) so be charming, eager and opportunistic. If someone gives you an opening, seize it. Love, beauty Friday.

Nov. 18 - 24, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A celebratory air fades midweek, as a month of duty, management demands, health concerns and weariness, begins. In the weeks ahead, be charitable, seek a broader spirituality, and co-operate with government, institutions and large corporations. However, don’t start anything, especially in these areas, before Nov. 26. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Details, paperwork, errands, trips, communications and casual meetings fill midweek. Spiritual, governmental matters worry, but social/love urges inspire you. Domestic concerns need caution Thursday late night, confidence Friday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Pressures ease. A month of ambition and tests yields to a month (starting Wednesday) of friends, popularity, light romance (which can turn deeper) entertainment and optimism. Don’t start anything new (including relationships) before Nov. 26.Your energy and charisma soar Sunday/ Monday (better after 2 p.m. Sunday) – get things done. Chase money, protect possessions midweek. You might be confused about a money matter: success lies in rethinking it from a career perspective (or a boss’s, parent’s). Talk, travel, driving fill Thursday eve to Saturday: take care Friday morning. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A thoughtful month passes Wednesday, and a new one, of pressure and deadlines, ambition and career, reputation and authority, will begin. You’ll be tested, and your reactions noted. This week, hold to the status quo – start nothing before Nov. 26. (Your thinking’s too fuzzy – though loving – until then.) Rest, lie low and contemplate Sunday/ Monday. Your energy and charisma soar TuesdayThursday. Chase money Thursday eve and Friday after mid-morn – be careful in-between. From midweek into mid-December, travel, law, higher education and cultural venues favour you, bring joy. timstephens@shaw.ca
