INTO THE BURN

NOW reporter Jeremy Deutsch gets a crash course in firefighting from the pros in Port Coquitlam

Lisa King/NOW

A Port Coquitlam firefighter douses a controlled burn at the department’s new training facility as part of a demonstration for local politicians and media.

I

open my eyes, but there is only darkness. I close them for a moment, but when they reopen, the black remains. I take a deep breath, but it’s shallow — not the same as a getting a mouthful of air on a crisp fall evening. In fact, at this very moment, nothing feels like the serenity of a peaceful night. I hear the sounds of men shouting. They’re giving me directions, but it’s all just noise. I’m paralyzed in the moment — and the darkness. I take more deep breaths, but as each moment passes, they just get harder and harder. There is no nice way of saying it; I’m in full

on freak-out mode. I’m just about to give up, when I get a tap on the shoulder. It’s a firefighter. He points down past a doorway a couple of feet away to the flickering orange glow. Finally, I can see light. I know where I am, and I know I’m going to be OK. I quickly grab a tight hold of the fire hose and move through the doorway. The smoke is heavy, but I see the target. “Point the hose at the fire, and just give it a one-second blast,” he tells me. Actually, I’m not even sure if that’s exactly what he said, but it’s what I heard. So I follow the orders and as soon as the

water connects, the flames scurry to a trickle of embers. Just like that, we’re ordered to stay low and make our way to the exit on the floor below. I venture back into the darkness with the hose as my guide. In what was only a matter of minutes but felt like a clichéd eternity, I’m finally outside of the building. I pull off my mask and take the deepest breath I can, realizing I came within a hair of quitting. I didn’t quit. I finished the tasked, leaving me with a proud feeling. But if the above tale sounds a little melodramatic, that’s because it is.

I really wasn’t in all that much danger — I think. Oh, there was darkness, and I nearly had a panic attack. Every part of me, once inside the smoky burn building, believed I was fighting a fire. In reality, I was taking part in an operations exercise with the Port Coquitlam Fire & Emergency Services Department. On this dreary rainy Saturday, the department invited a handful of city councillors and The NOW to take part in several operational scenarios to give the politicians and media a better understanding of what firefighters really do.

Anti-bullying bylaw already in place

Regina was first to launch such a bylaw, and official says it ‘has helped’ in Prairie city Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

I

f the City of Port Coquitlam plans on bringing in a bylaw to curb bullying, it better be prepared to follow through and have it challenged. That’s the advice from police in Regina, the city where the first antibullying bylaw in the country was created back in 2006. Regina Police Service spokeswoman Elizabeth Popowich said the Prairie city enacted the anti-bullying bylaw, which also includes fines for public fighting, as a means of bringing awareness to the issue. She said quite a bit of time went into developing the bylaw, adding the intent was to create some form of a sanction that wasn’t criminal in nature. A fine of up to $2,000 can be levied for an infraction. But in the years since, Popowich noted only a handful of tickets have been issued and none have been followed through to prosecution or payment. Instead, she said police were more likely to proceed with a criminal charge for a specific complaint or incident when warranted, rather then use the bylaw. “In many cases, the evidence is

Port Coquitlam launched an anti-bullying campaign earlier this week. there for harassment or assault or uttering threats or a criminal charge,” Popowich told The NOW. This week, as part of a major antibullying campaign launched in the wake of the suicide of Amanda Todd, the City of Port Coquitlam announced plans to develop an anti-bullying bylaw, which would be the first of its kind in B.C. Though the details of such a bylaw still need to be worked out, the intention is to define bullying and give

police powers to hand out tickets for those caught taking part in it. The fines will start at $200 and escalate to $2,000. However, the point of the bylaw is not to collect money but to educate and change behaviour. As part of the bylaw, an anti-bullying course is being developed through the PoCo Youth Society. Those who get fines will be able to take the course to have their tickets ripped up. Interestingly, the Regina bylaw was created in response to the story

of Reena Virk, another tragic case of bullying in B.C. In the Regina bylaw, the city has defined “ bully” as “any objectionable or inappropriate comment, conduct or display by a person directed at an individual not of the same household intended to intimidate, humiliate, ridicule or isolate, which causes or is likely to cause physical or emotional distress.” While the bylaw makes note of bullying in a public place, it also extends to written or electronic communications. Popowich noted that portion of the bylaw recognizes the increasing use of electronics as just one more way people might carry out bullying. Much like the proposed PoCo bylaw, the Regina regulations offer an alternative to a fine, in which the person can attend an anti-bullying course. Popowich said the bylaw hasn’t eradicated bullying from the city, suggesting no bylaw ever could, but it has proven to have value as an educational tool. “I would say it has helped. It’s helped to raise awareness,” she said. “There is value in raising awareness about the issue, about serving notice that it’s unacceptable and there are consequences.” The PoCo bylaw will get its first reading at the Dec. 10 council meeting.

BC Assessment updating house photos Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com If you spot an unusual vehicle taking pictures in your neighbourhood in the coming weeks, don’t worry, you’re not on candid camera and hopefully you won’t have to call the police. Instead, it’s a company hired by BC Assessment to take digital pictures of the more than 25,000 single-family homes in Coquitlam for assessment purposes. The residential photo update initiative, which is being handled by a company called Tyler Technologies, will take street-front digital photos of homes throughout Coquitlam, with a target start date of Dec. 5. The work is expected to take about three to four weeks to complete. BC Assessment deputy assessor Zina Weston said that previously, junior staff were responsible for the duty, but she suggested the agency has found it to be more economical to hire an outside company to do the work. She noted the photographs would only be used by BC Assessment for

assessment purposes. They might also be used during the assessment appeal process with a homeowner. To allay privacy concerns, BC Assessment said it would photograph only the public street front of a home including the home address number. That also means no visible signage on a residence, including business signs, signs with the names of the people living at that property and any other type of signage that may relate to the identity of a person. This includes vehicle licence plates. “We’re not after any open garage doors or visible people, just the house number … and the property itself,” Weston told The NOW, adding the images are just one more way of keeping the data current. BC Assessment has employed the technology in a handful of other municipalities over the last few years. This year, the agency is taking the initiative to New Westminster and Coquitlam in December, while work was just completed in Burnaby. It’s expected to cost BC Assessment about $66,000, or $2.60 per folio, to

3 hours fighting fires is enough Donate a blanket  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

“There’s a real misconception that we just stand and point water on a fire and deal with it,” said PoCo fire chief Nick Delmonico. “I don’t think people get the real technical nature of what we do.” The group took part in a handful of scenarios including a rescue, an attack of a fire and a cold start. Though the exercises all took place within the controlled environment of the department’s new burn building, the day was meant to be as real as possible. That included suiting up in full gear and literally moving through a burning smoking building, the live fire building. Unveiled in May, the building has become an integral part of training for the department. It gives the new recruits and some of the veterans a chance to practise their skills in a near real-life setting. For PoCo Mayor Greg Moore, the tasks were both exciting and scary. “It gives me a whole new appreciation for what firefighters go through when they have to go into a fire,” he said, noting it was his first time donning the gear. Moore said the exercises were a great opportunity for him and fellow councillors, who will be making decisions about the fire service, to see what the department goes through rather than reading it

in a PowerPoint presentation or report. The department recently completed an operations review guided by the chief. Though the document and its details haven’t been made public, the chief said it’s no secret the department is short staffed, noting there hasn’t been an increase in personnel in 22 years. It’s not just fires, Delmonico explained, but in general, the call volumes of the department are on the rise. “It’s getting very difficult for us to keep up with the volumes here,” he said, adding he would like to see more firefighters in the PoCo uniform. On the other side of that equation is city council. Moore didn’t offer specifics when asked about an increase in resources, noting the city needs to consider the statistics and different standards in each community. As for me, I might have learned a sad and telling lesson about myself from my three hours as a firefighter. I joked to friends afterward there is no way I would run into a burning building to save someone after what I had just gone through. Fires are a dangerous situation, and without experience, training and proper equipment they can turn deadly in an instant. There is no Hollywood ending for me. I’ll leave the firefighting to the professionals who do it every day.

The 18th-annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive — billed as the region’s longest-running charitable blanket and warm clothing collection — is now underway. Donations stay within the communities in which they are donated, according to a press release, or, if volumes are too large, go to charities in greatest need in neighbouring communities. The event runs through Monday, Dec. 3. To learn more, visit www.blanketdrive.ca.

Pay parking at a popular Port Moody park just got a little bit closer to reality. On Tuesday, council authorized city staff to move ahead with developing a detailed plan to introduce pay parking in the city, starting at Rocky Point Park. The city has been looking at introducing pay parking for years, including commissioning a study in 2004, but the issue had been deferred. But with the Evergreen Line on the way, city staff are recommending the introduction of a pay parking pilot program into areas that will not be as impacted by the line to get the community ready for the concept. Council asked staff to include in the plan different options for how the revenue would be allocated and possible options for tiered parking, where the first portion of time would be free. But there wasn’t complete agreement among council on the resolution, or how to deal with the parking problem at the park. Coun. Diana Dilworth voted against the recommendation and argued that just dealing with Rocky Point Park was “shortsighted.”

Fire started in kitchen jdeutsch@thenownews.com Several residents living in a Coquitlam apartment are waking up in their own beds after being forced from their homes following a two-alarm fire Tuesday. In all, 18 suites sustained damage from the fire that started at an apartment on Westview Street. Though most units suffered minor smoke damage, at least three will need more repairs before occupants can return.

Coquitlam Fire & Rescue chief Tony Delmonico said it could take four months to repair the unit where the fire originated. The second-floor unit needs extensive renovation, while a third-floor unit may also need either major repairs or a good cleaning. Emergency social services were called in to deal with affected homeowners and tenants in the building. While the investigation into the blaze is ongoing, Delmonico said the fire doesn’t appear suspicious,

noting it originated on the stove. The chief also said this is about the time fire calls related to the holiday season increase. The department is reminding residents to be extra careful, especially when it comes to Christmas trees, which can light up quickly. “We don’t want to see anybody in the city experience one of these fires, especially at Christmastime,” Delmonico told The NOW, noting the department has already dealt with two candle fires recently.

Robbery suspect to remain in custody dished a gun. A week later, a suspect targeted four other businesses. In all, police believe the same suspect was responsible for a total of nine robberies, linking the incidents based on suspect appearance. The thief wore a hoodie, balaclava and gloves during the mid-summer robberies. The last two robberies came at the end of October. Investigators caught a break in the case after an Oct. 28 robbery where the suspect left a backpack behind at the scene. That backpack revealed clues that eventually led to an arrest. At the time of the arrest, Coquitlam RCMP said it might be able to connect the suspect to more robberies as the investigation continues. Meanwhile, McClinton has a criminal history dating back to 2003 within the Tri-Cities and the Lower Mainland, including convictions for robbery offences in Port Moody back in 2004 and in New Westminster in 2005. twitter.com/jercoquitlamnow

McClinton is facing 22 charges related to the Austin Heights robberies, including seven for robbery, seven for using an imitation firearm while committing an offence, seven for using a disguise with intent to commit an offence and one charge of possession of stolen property.

Few winners in war on drugs Now that neighbouring Washington state and Colorado have legalized marijuana, Ottawa can no longer claim Canada must uphold marijuana prohibition in order to maintain good U.S. relations.

To The Consider the experience of the former land of the free and current world leader in per capita incarceration.

Listen to the kids

A

dults, unfortunately, don’t often listen to children. And when they do, they aren’t always great listeners. That’s a shame, because what children can tell us is incredibly valuable. Last week, ChildFund released its annual survey of 6,204 children from around the world. Small Voices, Big Dreams, polled children aged 10 to 12 in 47 countries. The survey was commissioned by the ChildFund Alliance and the Christian Children’s Fund of Canada and conducted in June and July. The group didn’t do a simple tick-box survey. It asked kids six questions and documented their responses. Not surprisingly, children in impoverished, war-torn countries were concerned about war. Young Achiatou, 12, said simply, “I am afraid of war, and I would like to ask to our parents to stop doing war, as war destroys children’s futures.” The children surveyed showed tremendous compassion, wisdom and, in many cases, optimism. An Afghan child, Zabihullah, said, “I am afraid of child kidnapping. If I was president, I would provide programs about child rights.” Perhaps not surprisingly, when asked about their aspirations, children in developed countries wanted to make their mark by becoming professional athletes or entertainers, while children in developing countries wanted to change their world by working in health care or education. But what was perhaps most interesting was an almost universal interest in the environmental future of the world. According to ChildFund’s secretary-general Jim Emerson, “Consistently, children want to protect their world. Their greatest environmental concern is pollution. They want to enhance their communities by planting trees and creating more parks, and they take a strong stand against litter and rubbish.” Indeed, we should stop and truly listen to the children.

Perspective

Why do cops talk on phones while driving? “Cpl. Chung, I have two questions for you today. Q1: Are police officers exempt from the ban on cellphone use while driving? Reason: I have witnessed, on a number of occasions, police officers driving while on their cellphones AND driving while looking down at their computer. (Not safe ONE BIT). Q2: Are police officers granted special privilege which allows them to speed through school zones during school hours? Reason: I live two houses down from an elementary school located on a BUSY street. I don’t have enough fingers and toes to count the number of times in one week I witness police cars whip past my home (and the school) doing well beyond the speed limit and without lights or sirens.” Jenn Boyd Cop Port Coquitlam

Police officers have relied on radios (an electronic device) for a long time now but, as you point out Jenn, smart phones and in-car computers are also basic equipment in police cars and the basic duties of a police officer these days are heavily reliant on electronic devices. To do police work effectively, we need access to the most current information. At times, we need to find the shortest route to an emergency call and a quick glance at a computer for the GPS function is invaluable. I know that our IT department is exploring some futuristic high tech devices. However, there is a technological gap at the moment between what we have and what we want. Furthermore, any such device will have to be tested extensively before being used. Talk For the time being, our management team is encouraging everyone to only Cpl. Jamie Chung Jenn, the answers to both of your look at their computer when it is safe to questions are short — but I’d like to do so. As a point of interest, anyone callput them in context so my responses will be a bit ing 911 is also exempt from the ban. long. But bear with me because I have some advice The exemption doesn’t mean that first respondat the end that I hope you find useful. ers are any better at balancing the demands of drivThe short answer to your first question is yes, ing with the distractions of electronic devices than police officers (as well as other first responders like other drivers. paramedics and firefighters) are exempt from the It just means that, in some circumstances, the ban on using electronic devices while operating a risk of a cop using a cellphone or a radio or a motor vehicle. GPS while driving to a call may be less than the risk Now for the context. The Motor Vehicle Act says of that same cop showing up at a scene without vital information or showing up at the wrong address or the exemption of the Use of Electronic Device law showing up too late. applies if a police officer is using the device “while That said, we have policy in place to direct our carrying out their powers, duties or functions.”

employees not to talk on hand-held devices or text when driving because safety (including the safety of the public and our employees) is extremely important to us. My colleagues and I are all aware that the public expects, and deserves, to be served by police officers who uphold strong ethics and demonstrate sound judgment — which is a fancy way of saying, policy notwithstanding, most of us avoid using the MVA exemption unless it is necessary because we are aware that, even when it is necessary, it doesn’t necessarily send a good message. The fact is, as anyone who has been behind the wheel of a vehicle knows, driving is a complex task and we all have to focus on the road to keep ourselves and others safe. Unfortunately, there are many things in the car that could interfere with our concentration. These distractions come in many different ways and forms, from electronic devices to food and beverages to pets, children and friends. Even grooming and fashion can be distractions; I once investigated a collision in which the driver took her eyes off the road for a split second to adjust her shoes. No matter what takes our eyes off the road or pulls our attention from driving, it doesn’t take long before something bad happens. I am sure you (along with many citizens) have noticed Coquitlam Mounties are ramping up distracted driving enforcement. Why are we doing it? A few years ago, collision statistics started showing a strong correlation between serious crashes and the  CONTINUED ON PAGE 9, see DISTRACTION A FACTOR.

Distraction a factor in many crashes  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 8.

use of electronic devices, to the point where distraction was a contributing factor in almost half of the crashes with fatalities or serious injuries in the Lower Mainland. Also, research has shown that drivers fail to process nearly 50 per cent of the information from their driving environment when they are using some type of electronic communication device. Jenn, the answer to your second question is a straightforward no — with a caveat. Police have to obey the speed limit in all school (and playground) zones. That being said, there are situations in which we can lawfully drive beyond the area’s speed limit when responding to an emergency call: • By using our emergency lights and sirens in a school or playground zone. • By using only our emergency lights in places other than a school or playground zone. • Without using any emergency equipment in places other than a school or playground zone. I appreciate both of your questions and want to assure you you’re not the only one wondering about these issues. A few months ago I got a tweet from a father whose young daughter had spotted

NOW file photo

Distraction is a factor in 50 per cent of crashes, RCMP say. one of my colleagues on the phone while driving and asked her dad about it. His tweet included the time of day and the car number. I responded to the tweet and tracked down the colleague who was driving the car to let him know. I suppose that’s a good sign that our distracted driving message is getting through, but I expect the questions will keep coming. Now, I promised you some useful advice. If, after reading my responses, you believe you’re witnessing a police officer using an electronic device inappropriately or unnecessarily violating school zone speed limits, please report

the incident to us. Does that sound like a strange request? Think about it this way: my colleagues and I have a lot of self-directed time in a shift. We don’t have partners like the cops on TV and, for now anyway, we don’t have cameras in our cars to record our every word and deed. So feedback from the public is the only way we can find out what we’re doing well and what needs work. There are two ways to give us some feedback: 1. To initiate a complaint against a member of the Coquitlam RCMP, call the nonemergency reporting line at 604-

945-1550 or mail the details to: Coquitlam RCMP Professional Standards Unit, 2986 Guildford Way, Coquitlam, BC, V3B 7Y5 (we do not yet accept complaints online or via e-mail). 2. Visit our website (http:// coquitlam.rcmp-grc.gc.ca), click “Enter,” then click “Log in and speak up!” to fill out our online community survey. It’s live until Jan. 7 and, if you live, work, play or go to school in our jurisdiction, we need your feedback to help us assess our performance for 2012 and plan our projects and initiatives for 2013. We always strive to deliver the best police service to everyone in Anmore, Belcarra, Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam. Our management team needs to know when conscientious citizens like you think we can do better. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. • Cpl.

Jingle Bell Jog to help SHARE On Sunday, Dec. 2, the second-annual Jingle Bell Jog will make its way through north Coquitlam in support of SHARE Family & Community Services. The event features a five-kilometre course around Lafarge Lake and back, as well as a one-kilometre Reindeer Runners course for kids. Tri-Cities residents are encouraged to bring food and toy donations to help SHARE provide more than 1,700 local families with Christmas hampers and toys. Food and entertainment will be provided. For those who have not registered yet, late registration is available from 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1 inside Coquitlam Centre (in front of London Drugs). Registration for the five-km run costs $35 for adults and $30 for those 15 and younger, while Reindeer Runners pay $25 for adults and $20 for those 15 and younger. Package pickup for those who have already registered takes place at the same time as late registration. Organizers are hoping to beat last year’s fundraising totals of 1,255 pounds of food, 130 toys and $3,500 in cash donations gathered on race day. The Jingle Bell Jog starts at 9 a.m., while the Reindeer Run starts at 8:30 a.m. Both courses will follow the same routes as last year’s event.

“We’ve been serving the same people for so many years that their kids are now grown up!” said Jay Smith of the Saint St. Grill, which nestles calmly in Moody Centre of the bustle of Saint John’s St. “When people ask themselves ‘where will we have our family functions?’ they think of here. “We play an integral role in Port Moody life and that doesn’t take a back seat at Christmas and New Year; many of the same groups have been having their parties here for seven, eight and nine years.”

Hip 21-year-olds in jeans and designer shirts are often spotted sitting nearby a gran and granddad in their Sunday best – no matter who you are or what the occasion, everybody who steps through the door feels comfortable in the awardwinning Saint St. Grill.

ERH gets specialized bed The first special purpose “spORT” mobility bed has arrived at Eagle Ridge Hospital. Staff and donors celebrated the arrival with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday. The new patient bed will be housed in the hospital’s Monitored Care Unit (MCU) to serve the community’s sickest patients, according to a press release. Many larger Fraser Health hospitals already have the state-of-the-art beds and technology, and the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation estimates more than 75 patients this year will benefit from the purchase of the bed. The foundation hopes to eventually replace all 10 beds in the MCU with sport beds, which are designed to prevent pneumonia, breathing complications and bed sores during hospital stays. “We are pleased to celebrate this fundraising achievement with donors and staff of Eagle Ridge Hospital,” said Charlene GiovannettiKing, the foundation’s executive director. “With their help we raised the $40,000 needed to purchase this bed. We want to thank our donors who generously gave to the 2012 Have a Heart direct mail campaign. Our patients and community deserve access to state-ofthe-art health-care and this special-purpose

TRI-CITIES AUTOMOTIVE

GUIDE

Mazda improves fuel efficiency  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 19.

The base GX is powered by a 148 horsepower 2.0litre engine with a five-speed manual transmission, while the GS and GT trims both come with a 167 horsepower 2.5-litre four-cylinder and a six-speed manual gearbox. An optional five-speed automatic with a distinctively Mazda manual shift mode is also offered. SkyActiv is actually a collection of technology and design advancements that squeeze more usable energy out of every drop of gasoline that goes to the engine. And since most gasoline engines are less than 30 per cent efficient, there’s probably room for improvement. Mazda challenged its engineers and designers to question conventional industry wisdom and adopt a “sky is the limit” mentality — hence the name. So, without resorting to higher-cost electrification solutions, Mazda was able to achieve near hybrid-like fuel economy results. The added bonus for Mazda is that if, and more likely when, it adds electrification features, it will again be ahead of the pack. While the GS-Sky edition of the Mazda3 doesn’t have a complete SkyActiv package (the new Mazda CX-5 does), it still offers significantly better fuel economy without sacrificing performance. In fact, power output is higher, in addition to the fuel economy benefit. The 2.0-litre SkyActiv engine can produce 155 horsepower and 148 footpounds of torque, and it runs on regular gasoline. That’s surprising as it’s an ultra-high (about 13:1) compression ratio engine (10:1 or less is the norm). When sold in countries (mostly European) with higher octane regular gasoline the ratio can be even higher and that translates to even more power. This engine is mated to either a new six-speed manual or automatic transmission. My test GS-Sky came with the new automatic, which is a light-weight design with fewer components and a more active lock-up feature that provides better fuel economy.

Style

Wipe that grin off its face, or something to that effect, must have been a priority order to designers. The front face lift definitely gives the 2012 Mazda3 a more dignified appearance, even though the new front side air intakes in the fascia are fakes. You’ve no doubt seen lots of Mazda3s on the road, yet it’s a design that still looks fresh and modern as well as being aerodynamic.

Inside

My test GS-Sky came with cloth upholstery and manual adjustments on the front seats. The driver gets a cranktype cushion height adjustment to help find that optimal drive position, and every Mazda3 comes with a tilt and telescopic steering wheel. Some extra meat on the leather covered steering wheel would be nice, but I did like the selection of controls on the wheel, which are also standard. In fact, the entire driver control layout is cleverly simple and easy to use. No fancy electronic displays, just easy to find and use switches and round dials — now that’s a novel idea! Delightful surprises included wipers and lights with “set and forget” auto settings. The bucket style seats also offer good lateral support, but cushioning was on the firm side. Rear seat leg room is a bit tight, but typical of what you get in a compact car.

ing speeds. The new six-speed automatic is an absolute delight to use. Although mechanically it’s an old-school conventional automatic, Mazda has removed slip and sharpened the gear changes so that it can match the speed of the latest double-clutch automatics. While it didn’t have a “sport” drive mode, in manual mode if you floor the gas

pedal it instantly drops down a couple of gears, which is a very nice feature.

Sum-up

Even though the redesign focus was mainly on improving fuel efficiency, the GS-Sky edition of the Mazda3 Sport hasn’t lost any of its performance pedigree — zoom-zoom stays.

The Mazda3 was recognized as a top safety pick.

Safety

The Mazda3 was recognized as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, based on the results of its crash tests program. An electronic stability control system is now standard on all trim levels.

Drive

While it may be a cost-conscious compact car, the driver focus and racing connection is still evident when you get behind the wheel of a Mazda3. Clearly someone who is enthusiastic about driving had a major role in its design. There’s a sporty firmer feel to the suspension than you typically get in this class and the pay off is delightfully agile handling. An electro-hydraulic power assist system on the steering is very nicely tuned to provide a precision feel and good straight line tracking. The SkyActiv engine’s pulling power below 3,000 rpm was a little disappointing, but it certainly makes good from that point on. At 100 km/hour the tachometer read just under 2,000 rpm and went to just over that mark at 110 km/h. So, in addition to being highly fuel efficient it’s also a quiet engine at highway cruisfollow us on

When blogging about children, use discretion

Hop on board the Santa Train

On two Saturdays in December (Dec. 8 and 15), the popular West Coast Express Santa Train will be back on track, offering free rides to passengers in return for new, unwrapped toys. Now in its 16th year, the Santa Train collects toys on behalf of Christmas bureaus throughout the communities West Coast Express serves, including SHARE in the Tri-Cities. In 2011, West Coast Express collected more than 3,900 toys and $1,260 in cash donations, according to a press release. “When we first launched the Santa Train 16 years ago, we carried about 1,200 passengers over the two-day event and now we are carrying more than 2,500 passengers on the two Saturdays,” said Fred Cummings, president and general manager of West Coast Express. “West Coast Express passengers have embraced the Santa Train because it’s a fun-filled way to give back to families in need in their communities.” Want to come along for the ride? Bring a new, unwrapped toy to any West Coast Express Station on either Dec. 8 or 15 and in exchange, you will receive a same-day return ticket for the West Coast Express. The Santa Train is fun for the entire family. Santa will be on board the morning train to Waterfront Station to visit with kids of all ages, and will be found in the West Coast Express concourse at Waterfront Station from 3 to 4 p.m. for photos. West Coast Express is also supporting a food drive in the northeast sector by collecting non-perishable food donations at any of its stations from Dec. 8 to 15. While food donations are greatly appreciated, to hop on board a Santa Train and receive a free return-ticket, each passenger must donate a new, unwrapped toy.

Blogging is a great way to share parenting techniques, but remember that the information you put out there about your kids never goes away — and may embarrass them when they’re older. Dreamstime

eat, drink & be merry! Drive responsibly this season!

Government, ICBC and police launch December CounterAttack campaign While attitudes towards drinking and driving have changed considerably over the past 35 years, impaired driving is still a leading cause of fatal car crashes in B.C. To help keep our roads safe, police will be out in full force throughout December, looking for impaired drivers at roadchecks across the province.

Be Safe over the Holiday Season Don’t Drink and Drive

221 Ioco Road, Port Moody 604-461-3373

Plan your ride

Recently the public was asked what it takes to be a designated driver. Many people said that the least drunk person often becomes the designated driver by default. Unfortunately, this is the type of thinking, along with a lack of planning, that leads to impaired driving crashes on our roads. In fact, the only time to decide how to get home safely is before you start drinking. Otherwise, it is too late. That is why everyone is reminded to designate a driver before the first round of drinks arrives.

Being a designated driver is a shared responsibility. You can promote safe driving and encourage your friends and family to make smart choices. Set a positive example and take turns beingthe designated driver. Remember, a designated driver is the person who decides not to drink so that they can drive others home safely. Does food, coffee, exercise or a cold shower help sober you up? Only time can sober you up or lower your blood-alcohol content.. Contrary to popular belief, food, coffee, cold showers or exercise will not speed up the elimination of alcohol from your system. You are safest if you completely separate driving from drinking.

Score Card

Rested Chiefs prep for Island doubleheader If nothing else, their recent two-week respite will have given the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs an opportunity to cool their jets Currently the second-most penalized team in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League, the Chiefs are still in good standing in the 11-team loop and sit in fourth place with an 11-5-2 record. But 425 penalty minutes through 18 contests — second only to the 500 penalty minutes put up by the Valley West Hawks — is a stat that head coach Doneau Menard knows is in need of some attention. Though the numbers are slightly skewed by a handful of 10-minute misconducts assessed earlier this season, the Chiefs will look to win the game between the ears this weekend when they travel to Vancouver Island to take on the North Island Silvertips. “We’ve certainly taken more [penalties] than I want us to and it’s been a factor, but I don’t know that game by game that it’s a reflection on us being a totally undisciplined hockey team,” Menard said. “That said, I’m not pleased with some of the penalties we’ve been taking as of late.” The last time the Chiefs took to the ice saw them clobber the Hawks in a homeand-home set by a combined score of 13-4 back in mid November. The subsequent two-week rest was both a blessing and a curse — the club did get a chance to rest, though a handful of regulars were just returning form injury and looking to get back into game shape. Among the notable returns to the lineup is Port Moody’s Lucas Mercer, a six-foot-five defenceman who was out due to a concussion. “It’s a brain break for everybody,” Menard said. “These kids come to the rink with the intention of performing well and they put a lot of pressure on themselves to do that.” After this weekend’s Island jaunt, the Chiefs return home for a pair of contests against the Okanagan Rockets on Dec. 8 and 9.

and inexperienced to start, but we will also be competitive — we’ll have speed to burn.” With seven Gr. 11s providing the depth, a lot of the eyes will be on Gr. 10s Liam Hancock, Jomari Reyes, Andy Seo and Mike West. Skipping a junior season isn’t for the faint of heart, and the Ravens coaches are adamant that players are here to play. “There are always question marks with players that are brought up,” noted Hanson. “With these four guys we’re going to throw them into the fire and get them plenty of floor time.” Hancock, Reyes and Seo are all guards, while West, a junior football standout at six-feet-three, will be one of the taller players on a relatively small Fox roster. “We see the potential that these young players have, and I think it will say a lot about our leadership in how they mature,” added Petersen. The Ravens officially launched the exhibition season on Tuesday when they visited the Vancouver College Fighting Irish. They followed that with a trip to White Rock to take on the Warriors. Tonight (Friday) they visit Sardis. On Saturday, they’ll be the warm-up game of the Howard Tsumura Invitational in Langley, where Fox will face No. 6 seeded Sir Winston Churchill. The squad will host a touring Australian team on Tuesday, before heading south to play two games in Washington State. On Dec. 11, the Ravens will hold their official home opener against the St. Thomas More Knights. Their first Fraser Valley North league game will be on Dec. 17 against Fraser Heights.

The Vikings will now look to run the gamut and pull off a perfect season Sunday, when the club takes on the West Kelowna Sundevils in the provincial final. Game time is 11:30 a.m. at Langley’s McLeod Athletic Park. • The peewee Wildcats, meanwhile, fell 40-6 to the Cloverdale Bobcats in last weekend’s VMFL final.

Vikings got it done on the weight of a balanced scoring attack, with four players scoring majors in the win.

The hockey gods giveth, and the hockey gods taketh away — particularly when your fate is decided in a shootout. The Tri-Cities Predators girls midget 1 hockey team can speak to that reality all too well, after experiencing both sides of that situation in less than a four-hour turnaround at last week’s Kamloops Female Ice Hockey Tournament. Down 2-0 going into the third in semifinal play against Cranbrook, the Predators stormed back to tie the game in regulation before earning the 4-3 win in the shootout off of markers from Nicole Vukasovic, Megan Bradford and Amy Cave. With just over an hour to decompress from that thriller, the Preds found themselves in the exact same scenario in the championship game, although minus a few regulars due to injury. In that contest, the Predators dropped a 3-2 decision to their counterparts from Kelowna.

PoCo edges Central City Posting a well-deserved shutout, Steph Sonea set the tone in locking up the Port Coquitlam Euro-Rite Spartans’ 1-0 win over Central City in under-16 metro select girls soccer action. Sonea kept the opposition off the scoresheet, aided by a polished effort from her defence. The game’s lone goal came in the 24th minute when Kristen Purdy cashed in a cross from Teagan Lefebvre. The backline of Christine Anderson, Kelly Petraschuk, Megan Sigsworth and Chanel Walter had standout efforts.

COQUITLAM

Some things only come around once — the first man on the moon or MacDonald’s first hamburger ever sold. Chalk up the inaugural EA Sports B.C. Soccer Premier League under-16 boys title for Coquitlam Metro-Ford Barca — no one else can claim to be there first. Barca beat Mountain FC 2-1 in the championship game to wrap up a successful season. It didn’t come easily — Mountain, who had usurped Barca in the Provincial Cup semifinals on penalty kicks earlier in the year, grabbed an early lead. But Coquitlam countered, getting the equalizer from Elijah Sampson. On an ensuing corner kick, Luke Griffin buried a rebound to give Barca the victory. Over a 20-game schedule, the club posted 15 wins and five ties, while outscoring the opposition 69-11. In other BCSPL play, the Coquitlam MetroFord u-17 boys got goals from Karlo Kresevljak and Luigi Polisi to edge Fusion 3-2. • Ardi Hassirchian’s marker halfway through the second frame, off a great setup from Michael Aitken, stood up as the difference in Coquitlam Metro-Ford Crusaders’ 2-1 triumph over PoCo in u-16 boys Div. 3 play.

Aidan Ames opened the scoring finishing off a play started by Sina Ahmadian, before PoCo deposited the equalizer. Dominating the game at midfield was Ryan Fielding, while goalkeeper Zac Webster turned aside a handful of tough shots to preserve the decision.

PORT MOODY

Shaking off the remnants of a couple of tough losses recently, the Port Moody u-17 boys AC served up a 1-0 setback to previously unbeaten Ladner. With just one substitute available due to injuries, Port Moody buckled down for a challenge. Giving them an early boost was Brendon Emmott’s tally in the 23rd minute, when he beat three defenders at the top of the box to slot the ball home. Ladner pushed back in the second half, but the AC defence stood its ground. Leading the way were Alex Madsen, Matt Medanic and Skylar Turgeon, while Tristen Epplette locked up the victory with two outstanding stops for his second shutout of the season. • A pair of goals by Brianne Wager positioned the Port Moody u-18 girls Nitro in a good spot — resulting in a 2-0 decision over Cliff Avenue. Drawing key assists on the goals were Julia Basa and Rebecca Tingling. Providing some standout work at her position was Lindsay Kirk. • A lineup limited by injuries and illness ended up giving West Coast a window they jumped through, knocking off Port Moody u-16 Quicksilver 3-1. The Quicksilver struck first, taking a brief lead on Brittany Poulin’s marker midway through the first half. But West Coast replied with a pair to put Port Moody on the defensive. Strong outings from Mia Ciolli, Sophie Kim and Julia Palmer kept Port Moody in the game.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Work and health themes fill the few weeks ahead. Eat and dress sensibly; avoid sudden temperature changes and driving with the window open. If a romance began last month, it remains vibrant. All relationships heat up through Dec. 25, so be diplomatic. You could form a career/ business partnership, at least for a while. Career opportunities abound, though they need a flexible, diplomatic approach. Your energy, charisma remain high Sunday.Chase money,buy/sell Monday/Tuesday. Travel, errands, communications fill midweek. Head home Friday/Saturday – strengthen family ties. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Romance, creative and speculative urges, love of children, beauty and pleasure fill the weeks ahead. Take a risk, express yourself – and your heart – to a lover, child or spouse (or world, if you’re creative). A love affair could start, perhaps with someone you met in a group setting a while ago. (This one might have difficulty reaching a wedding.) Work demands intensify – practice safety. Rest, lie low Sunday. Your charisma soars Monday/ Tuesday – impress someone! Chase money, buy/sell midweek. Errands, calls, visits, news, casual friends and paperwork fill Friday/Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your home, parent/ child relations, foundations, security, garden and nature, nutrition, stomach, soul, retirement – these are featured until late December. Be patient with career and other ambitious areas – a waiting, “gestation” period lasts all winter. Your social life continues to be interesting: friends amuse, but intensity and sexual attraction send their arrows also. Sunday’s happy, optimistic. Retreat, rest and contemplate Monday/Tuesday. Your energy surges midweek – start significant projects, especially in those “home” areas listed above. Chase money Friday/Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Wisdom and gentle love, compassion, social rituals, far travel, higher education, publishing and intellectual pursuits fill your days. (Or at least tap you on the shoulder, as you can “tune out” such good things by working too hard, being too angry, etc.) Spend Sunday at home or in nature, resting, supervising kids. This night through Tuesday bring romance, creative and speculative urges, love of children, beauty and pleasure. These three days could mark a new relationship opportunity – so could Friday/Saturday. Tackle chores midweek. You’re ambitious, but don’t test higher-ups. Taurus April 20-May 20: Mysteries confront you. Solving them could open a profit – or someone’s heart. Investment opportunities abound – the best of these might involve 1) a partner, or 2) your own earnings picture. (E.g., invest in a machine to help you work; or in your education to get you on a higher earnings plateau.) Relationships with others remain active, talkative and affectionate. A “lust affair” might begin. Beware violating social, moral or legal boundaries now to Dec. 26. Avoid lawyers and lawsuits. Home calls you Monday/Tuesday. Romance or creative urges, midweek. Tackle chores Friday on. Gemini May 21-June 20: Relationships – and opportunities – are front and centre. This is no time to retreat or stand in the background. Be forward, approach people, make friends or chase love prospects. Others will welcome you, be glad to see you – unless you demand, insist or attempt to take advantage. A prospect or opportunity from the past (perhaps one you pursued last summer, early fall – or one from 1999) hovers around you: it will be “ready to go” February onward. (Meantime, dream, plan.) Your yearning for friendship, blocked for some months, will produce results soon. Romance, sort of, late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This is a busy but not important month. Chase money this week – buy/ sell, pursue new clients, ask for a pay raise or extra work, etc. Your home holds friction to late month. A relationship might break up. Take this in stride, remain diplomatic, gentle – toward children, too. A legal, educational or far travel project is on hold (until February) but many short excursions will soothe your wanderlust. Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/Tuesday – a light romance might begin. Retreat, rest and contemplate midweek. Your energy, charisma soar on a bumpy Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Chase money for the next few weeks. Add to your possessions. Buy/sell, seek new clients, nudge the boss for a pay raise, find extra work, etc. A spouse, partner or “third party” (or investment) might be beneficially involved – especially if a deal or introduction initially began before last October. Sunday’s gentle, thoughtful. Be ambitious Monday (best) and Tuesday. Midweek raises your hopes, brings popularity and social joys, and might fulfill a wish (perhaps involving travel, communication, friendship – and your work place). Retreat Friday/Saturday: rest, contemplate. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and clout are at a yearly high – you can attract that person who attracts you. A Gemini “mirrors you.” Start significant projects, venture forth, ask favours, meet people, see and be seen. Sunday contains secrets, but it’s unlikely they’ll yield to investigation. A wise, gentle mood flows over you Monday/Tuesday. Love could begin – so could a publishing venture, international journey, higher education or cultural event. Be ambitious mid-week, show higher-ups what you can do. Social delights, popularity, optimism and wish fulfillment Friday/ Saturday!

Dec. 2 - Dec. 8, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Recuperate to late December – rest, retreat, follow spiritual or charitable paths, deal with government agencies, institutions and corporate administrations. You might be asked to join a committee – accept, gladly; it can improve your employment prospects. Invest in warehousing or assembly lines, or a vacation retreat. Protect health and reputation: eat, dress and act sensibly. Avoid sudden temperature changes. Monday (better) and Tuesday bring investment opportunities, lifestyle decisions and health concerns. Mellow wisdom midweek. Be carefully ambitious Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: You’re going to love December. Popularity, social delights, wish fulfillment, new horizons and hopes, new plans and new friends – these “visit” you until Dec, 21. Live for the future this month. This week, remain ambitious: a cohort or boss has important, beneficial information or status to bestow on you. Until the 25th, guard your reputation: DO NOT gossip nor speak with unsavoury people. Tackle routine chores Sunday. Exciting meetings – or love interludes – buoy your mood Monday/Tuesday and Friday/Saturday. In-between, you touch deep regions in sex, finances or health. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Be ambitious this month – but realize your larger and longer-term fortune (through next June) lies in the opposite direction: home, real estate, retirement, “stopping,” security and humility. (E.g., you could quit a 60K job but make twice that on a piece of land.) You still feel enlightened, at peace, this week. Sunday’s for beauty, pleasure and passion: but (temporarily) there doesn’t seem to be anyone to lay that passion on. Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings exciting meetings, new horizons. Sex and $ depths Friday/Saturday: be a detective. Avoid unsafe sex. timstephens@shaw.ca
