SHARE looks for new home 2,000- to 3,000square-foot space needed Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Time is up for the Port Moody food bank. After several reprieves over the last year, the SHARE Family & Community Services Society has finally been given the boot from its Vintner Street food bank warehouse. Time officially ran out for the charity on Jan. 31. The warehouse is now empty, while the toys that were amassed there are in paid storage space and the food is scattered throughout various locations in the TriCities. SHARE is now looking for a new permanent spot, which could include paying for storage space — a move CEO Martin Wyant would like to avoid. “We don’t, as an organization, like to consider spending significant money on that kind of a solution because we’d rather see those funds go more directly into helping people,” he said. Wyant noted there could be a deal in the works with a local company to supply space for three months, but it won’t solve the long-term problem. Originally, SHARE was given until the end of June to move out of its warehouse, the old Andres Winery site in Port Moody, to make room for  CONT. ON PAGE 4, see SHARE.

Breathalyzers calibrated by Port Moody police were, in 14 cases, inaccurate, an independent investigation has concluded.

City facing breathalyzer lawsuits Lawyer estimates each of 14 drivers could receive up to $30,000 in compensation Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com An admission that the machine used by Port Moody police in more than a dozen drinking and driving cases in 2011 was invalid could cost city taxpayers big time. On Thursday, Port Moody police issued the results of an independent investigation looking into the calibration of the department’s breathalyzers, which determined 14 of the 174 immediate roadside prohibitions (IRPs) handed out that year were done so using an invalid device. As a result, a lawyer representing a

handful of people who received driving bans from the force during that time period expects the lawsuits to fly. Vancouver lawyer Paul Doroshenko said the affected drivers should get an immediate apology, along with compensation for out-of-pocket expenses directly related to the driving ban. He also suggested it’s the department and ultimately the city that’s on the hook for the expense. He estimated each of the 14 drivers could be in line to receive up to $30,000 in compensation to cover items like lost wages from the ban. He noted one client lost her job and then her house as a result of the ban. He said his clients are now consid-

ering what legal route they want to take, whether it is through a classaction lawsuit or individual cases. The issue of problems with the approved screening devices surfaced in October 2011, after media outlets suggested there was a flaw in the department’s “process for calibrating approved screening devices.” At the time, the department said it was treating the allegations seriously and called in the Office of the Police Complaints Commissioner (OPCC) and an outside agency to conduct an investigation. A year later, the OPCC determined the force’s breathalyzers were incorrectly calibrated and the allegations of neglect of duty against the

officer who used them were substantiated. As a result, the officer involved received a verbal reprimand, a measure the OPCC found acceptable. For its part, the police department said it has learned some “pretty hard lessons” about policies and protocols, and insisted the issues around the breathalyzers have been solved. “We are incredibly sorry for the inconveniences caused to the affected drivers and for the concerns that this matter caused with the public,” said Port Moody police spokesman Const.

Coquitlam explores affordable housing John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Rapid growth, skyrocketing cost increases and pressures on available rental stock are just a few of the factors that have Coquitlam council and staff considering wholesale changes to housing models within the city. That re-think was brought into focus during Monday’s council in committee meeting, as staff and council

spent more than two hours discussing a series of policy shifts contained in a document called the Housing Affordability Discussion Paper. A staff report notes the central thrust of the plan will see the city “shifting its approach from focusing on the provision of ‘below market’ affordable housing solutions to one that aims at promoting housing affordability across the housing continuum, through a variety of innovative policy and funding mechanisms.”

“If council is to have a beneficial effect on housing affordability in the next decade, and I strenuously hope that we will have a beneficial effect on it, almost all of that effect will be in zoning, in land-use policies and in reducing the land costs per door,” Mayor Richard Stewart said. Along with the long list of proposed changes came a grim snapshot of several economic indicators: since 1991 the median household income

has risen by 23 per cent, while average rents have increased 89 per cent. Dwelling costs, on the other hand, have jumped by 200 per cent. Further stats go on to suggest that 26 per cent of all households — roughly 10,000 — spend more than 30 per cent of their income on housing. Census numbers from 2006 also indicate that 1,175 households in Coquitlam were in need and spending at least half of their income on accommodation.

Compounding those issues is the fact that about 700 to 1,000 units of the city’s rental stock could be lost by 2023.

protocols, and put in fail safes to ensure such a situation won’t happen again. “We do take drinking and driving very seriously and we’re really pleased that 160 drunk drivers were taken off the streets of Port Moody in 2011,” Van Winkel added. According to a statement to The NOW on behalf of the province’s Superintendent of Motor Vehicles Steve Martin, the office is working to rectify the situation as quickly as possible. “The OSMV (Office of the

Superintendent of Motor Vehicles) has reviewed each file and will be contacting the 14 affected drivers cancelling their immediate roadside prohibitions and penalties,” the statement said. “We will also be working with Port Moody police on the issue of restitution for drivers.” The statement went on to read: “Police need to follow the standards and expectations around [breathalyzer] calibration. The ministry’s director of police services has written to police agencies to remind them about their

responsibility to ensure they adhere to protocols and standards. “Moving forward, we can tell you that standardized forms are now in place across B.C., with ongoing police monitoring and feedback to the respective police agencies to ensure accurate, complete documentation. Clearly a police processing error was made. That said, we are not easing off our commitment to remove impaired drivers from our roads.” The statement did not offer details on what kind of restitution would be considered.

The constant uncertainty has also led the charity to consider how it wants to deliver its services in the future. The old warehouse was a perfect place for SHARE to operate its annual Christmas toy

hamper drive. Without a similar-sized warehouse on the horizon, Wyant said the organization is already looking at different ways of operating next Christmas. He said SHARE is now on the hunt for about 2,000 to 3,000 square feet of storage space, a much smaller size than previously considered. “Let’s get the stuff into the space that we’ve got and let’s take a deep breath and look at how do we start planning for next December,” Wyant said.

Mayors skeptical of regional police force idea Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com While the debate over implementing a regional police force for Metro Vancouver may continue for some time, it doesn’t appear the discussion will get very far in the Tri-Cities. Civic politicians from all three Tri-Cities met for a closed-door information session on the topic of regional policing Tuesday, but at least two of the mayors remain skeptical of the idea. Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said he wants to see a complete regionalization of policing when it comes to joint teams like the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team IHIT, or some form of a hybrid of regional and local policing, but added he doesn’t see a need for a regional police force to handle noise complaints. He also questioned why Coquitlam would join a regional force when the city pays the lowest policing cost per capita in the province, and then suggested Vancouver wants to dump its policing

costs on surrounding municipalities. “Right now, I think the proposal is designed to have the suburbs subsidize Vancouver for its high police costs and I don’t see that as helpful,” Stewart told The NOW. He argued so much has changed in the way policing is done since the Pickton case, yet politicians keep being asked to adjust the structure of policing based on the past. “That’s frustrating. We really need to have this discussion about policing from the point of view about what we can improve about today’s police force,” he said. Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay also appeared unconvinced by the arguments in favour of a regional police force. He said the session only raised more questions, suggesting the conclusions from the missing women’s report are subjective and that a regional force may not have solved the breakdown in policing that occurred. Clay maintained the reason Metro Vancouver hasn’t amalgamated into one city is the same reason why there isn’t a regional police force — each

municipality has different needs and desires. He also argued municipalities would probably just end up breaking away from the regional force at some point anyway. Clay insisted residents in Port Moody have agreed to pay more for a municipal force because they want a department that has an intimate knowledge of the community, the people and geography. “We want the level of service and the response that we’re getting, and until someone shows me how we can maintain that, then I’m not compelled to look otherwise,” Clay said. In the meantime, PoCo’s mayor said the session didn’t help him make up his mind on the issue, nor was it meant to do so. “It’s an important issue of community safety for all of us,” Moore said, noting neither he nor the city’s council has taken an official position on regional policing. “It’s an expensive issue and it gets down to quality of life so we need to have a greater discussion on this very topic.” However, the mayor said a hybrid has “some good valid-

our own success: we have a wonderfully desirable community, we are building a community very strongly and we are prepared to handle the new growth,” said project consultant Bruce Irvine. “However, affordable housing itself as a piece of that growth, has unique challenges.” As a means to counteract those forces, the city will attempt to shift its focus onto newer, non-traditional housing models. Secondary suites will be heavily relied upon, as will “lock-off suites,” which are similar in

nature to secondary suites. Shared equity models will also be explored. That system sees the proceeds of new equity in a unit shared by both the original funder and the household in an effort to allow first-time buyers the ability to afford a down payment. “A lot of the people that I’ve talked to told me they wanted a city where their kids could live,” said Coun. Neal Nicholson. “And that’s what housing affordability is all about … it’s about having a place where people can aspire to live.” Monday’s discussion was the first step in what is expected to be a year-long process.

ity” but argued any model has to include more than just an integrated team for homicide and gangs. Moore also suggested the problem with integrated teams like IHIT is there is no

outside oversight. “If tax dollars I’m collecting on behalf of our residents and businesses are being spent, we need to oversee how they’re being spent,” he said. But Moore also offered a

glimpse of just how divided municipalities across the Lower Mainland are on the issue. He believes the only way a regional force would occur is if the province mandates it.

A HILARIOUS ROCKIN’

New bursary fund honours ADVENTURE... WITH FOOD! lacrosse star and city staffer John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Trevor Wingrove’s lifelong passion for the fastest game on two feet will live on, thanks to a new bursary established in his memory. The creation of the Trevor Wingrove Bursary Fund was announced Wednesday, and it will be awarded on an ongoing basis to graduating high school students within the Coquitlam Minor Lacrosse Association. The fund was established by both the Wingrove family and the Coquitlam Foundation in memory of the former lacrosse star and city staffer, who died of cancer in 2010 at the age of 42. “We’re looking for people that display a lot of the qualities that Trevor had,” Trevor’s father Les Wingrove said. “Trevor was a very dedicated individual in whatever he did, and he excelled at lacrosse. The successes that he had in lacrosse were because of the way he went about his business: he was a leader.” About $5,000 worth of seed money is currently in the fund. Those applying for the bursary must have played with the local lacrosse association for at least two years, and have plans to enrol in a postsecondary institution, training program or career-training

Trevor Wingrove program. Described by his father as a “rink rat” from an early age, Trevor’s first position of note came when he served as the waterboy for the junior Adanacs, the team his father coached, beginning at the age of 12. From there, he became a standout on the lacrosse floor at virtually every level he played. A B.C. junior league first team all-star in 1987 and ’88, Trevor won the most inspirational player award in 1988. In the senior lacrosse ranks, he played 145 regular season and playoff games, and put up 132 goals and 284 points along the way. But for all those statistical accomplishments, his dad is more proud of the way in which his son played — Trevor won the most

sportsmanlike player awards in both 1987 and 1988, and only accumulated 73 penalty minutes during his entire senior lacrosse career. “Trevor was a good allaround player and he used to rack up quite a lot of points,” Les said. “He could score, and he always got a lot of assists. But he could play both ends of the floor really well.” A severe injury to his Achilles tendon in the early 90s signalled the beginning of the end of Trevor’s days on the lacrosse floor, resulting in a new focus on schooling. After attending Whittier College in California for a year, he moved back to Metro Vancouver to continue his studies at Douglas College, while at the same time working on a seasonal basis for the City of Coquitlam. “When he was a lot younger, he came to me one day and said out of the blue, ‘You know, Dad, I think I want to go to university,’” Les recalled. “I wondered what made him decide that and he told me, ‘Well, I’m always around all the guys on your team and the guys that really have it together are the guys who go to university.’” Trevor’s seasonal work soon turned into a permanent position as deputy city clerk. From there, he worked his way into one of the top execu-

The new “Family Law Act” will become law on March 18, 2013. Do you know your rights?

PAT BISCEGLIA LAWYER

Certified Family Law Mediator

On March 18, 2013, the new Family Law Act will be the new Provincial Law that will affect family relations in this Province. The new Family Law Act will replace the Family Relations Act that has been in effect for about 30 years in this Province. The new Family Law Act will introduce major changes to your rights upon a breakdown of a marriage or a common law relationship. Below is a brief example of one of the changes. Under the present law, there has to be a “triggering event” under Section 56 of the Family Relations Act for property rights to crystallize (applies to married couples only). A “triggering event” can be a separation agreement, a Divorce Decree, or a Court Order that “there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation”. The effect of having to seek a “triggering event” is that it forced married couples to start legal action (or spend resources in trying to negotiate a separation agreement) in order to be entitled to a half interest in the family assets.

However, under the new Family Law Act, starting March 18, 2013, the only “triggering event” is the date of separation. The “triggering event” will apply to common law spouses who have been in a relationship for at least 2 years and to married spouses. This important change in the law is that the parties do not have to spend money by commencing legal action right away to get a “triggering event”. Once the separation has taken place, that becomes the “triggering event” and the spouses automatically have a right to an undivided half interest in all family property as “tenants in common”, and each spouse is equally responsible for family debt. Look for our future articles where other changes will be discussed. The information is not to be considered legal advice and you should not act upon it.

Coquitlam OKs SkyTrain work to start northeast pools John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Property owners in northeast Coquitlam can have their pools and swim in them too. Council voted unanimously to lift a prohibition on in-ground swimming pools in that area of the city on Monday. Instituted in 2005, the ban was put in place due to the belief that lots in the area would be too small to accommodate those types of pools. But as development has occurred in the area since that time, a number of different lot sizes and configurations have been developed, leaving enough space for those types of pools on those lots. The changes apply specifically to the following zones: RS-7 small village single family, RS-8 large village single family and RS-9 large single family residential. Couns. Neal Nicholson and Mae Reid were absent from Monday’s meeting.

PoCo firefighters happy with deal The City of Port Coquitlam and its firefighters are moving towards labour peace. Council recently approved a memorandum of agreement between the city and Local 1941 of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) that renews the collective agreement up to Dec. 31, 2011. The agreement now sets the stage for negotiations to begin on a more current agreement. The deal includes a wage settlement totalling 5.5 per cent, along with negotiated improvements for both parties. “Our firefighters provide a valuable service to our residents and businesses in Port Coquitlam,” Mayor Greg Moore said in a press release. “We are pleased to have this agreement complete and we look forward to starting negotiations on the current agreement.” According to a press release from the city, improvements in benefits for the firefighters include 10th-year rate increases, pension changes, improved insurance for birth mothers, and the addition of a Family Day statutory holiday in exchange for the reduction of one vacation day. Improvements for the city include a reduction to the clothing allowance, a new two-step graduated rate of pay for captains, payment of straight time, rather than overtime, for certain activities, and health/dental coverage changes. “The local is pleased to be working under a new collective agreement,” said Nick Zupan, president of the union local representing the firefighters. “It was a lengthy process but we feel the time was well spent, as the deal is a benefit to our members, the city and most importantly the citizens of Port Coquitlam. We look forward to a continued healthy and productive working relationship.”

After months of pomp and prep, major construction on the Evergreen Line will begin this month. The Ministry of Transportation made the announcement earlier this week, while releasing more details about the contract awarded to build the line. EGRT Construction, a consortium led by SNC-Lavalin, was awarded an $889-million contract to design, build and finance the project. More specifically, the company will build the elevated and at-grade guideways, a twokilometre tunnel, seven stations, power substations, train operating systems and parking facilities, as well as a vehicle-storage and light maintenance facility. In December, the province awarded a $90-

million contract to Bombardier Transportation to supply 28 SkyTrain cars for the Evergreen Line and the existing Expo and Millennium lines. A ministry press release noted that, for the duration of construction, a community-relations team will continue to work with residents, businesses, motorists and communities to provide current information about traffic and project information in different languages. A toll-free traffic information line and weekly e-mail bulletins about traffic are available to the public. Early work on the 11-kilometre line began last spring. The Evergreen Line construction cost is estimated to be $1.4 billion, while the trains are expected to be running by 2016.

Opinion

Let’s focus on safety, not turf With the recommendations from the recently completed Pickton inquiry, there has been some discussion of regionalizing our police force. I fully support these discussions, as a resident and a former local politician. I once looked out a window to see my van being stolen in Port Moody, 30 seconds from the Coquitlam border by at least two routes. I was able to call in the theft immediately and, fortunately, Port Moody police did find my van within minutes — in Coquitlam. When I asked them how the To The inter-force communication works, with a moving crime happening so close to the municipal boundary, they told me that Coquitlam wouldn’t even be alerted about such an event. While a car theft is not a “serious” crime, I fail to believe that not informing police in the vicinity makes sense. I also wonder how open the communication channel even is — I know when calling 9-1-1 that not only do I need to state the kind of emergency, but also the municipality, so I can be put through to the right dispatch. These delays would be very stressful in an urgent situation. What happens if you are near a municipal boundary and don’t even know what city you are in? And if you’re near the

many municipal boundaries in our region, are the closest officers being alerted, or just the ones within that municipality? I heard an officer with IHIT, the fairly recent and optional regional integrated homicide investigation unit, interviewed on radio this past week, and he sidestepped the question of whether things would be better if all the cities were forced to participate in IHIT. All he would do was point to the increased cooperation he’d seen between forces in recent years, since the heinous crimes of Pickton. Editor “Better” cooperation may not be good enough in our modern society. Smalltown police forces may (or may not) make sense in isolated small towns. I’m not convinced they make sense in an urban region full of winding municipal borders. Let’s have the debate. And let’s not let it be clouded by loud voices which may be motivated by workforce seniority, municipal “turfs” or the number of upper positions that might exist in a unified force. Let’s have our discussion be transparent and focused on effective and efficient public safety. Cynthia van Ginkel Burnaby

Our View

Regionalize it

O

n and on it goes — the debate over whether Metro Vancouver should have a regional police force. It won’t happen any time soon, since most mayors want to keep the status quo, and the province has said it won’t impose such a force. So while public opinion is in favour — 57 per cent of Metro Vancouver residents support a regional force, according to a recent Angus Reid poll — there’s no political will to make it happen. Here in the Tri-Cities, a recent meeting of mayors to discuss the issue resulted in three different positions. PoCo Mayor Greg Moore seems the most open to the idea of a regional force, saying he hasn’t made up his mind either way. Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay, meanwhile, has a different view. He believes a Port Moody-only force offers better service for residents — who pay a premium for it. He may be right about that, but criminals don’t respect municipal boundaries, so a collection of local forces and detachments doesn’t offer the best service to the region as a whole. Finally, Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart is worried a regional force would see the suburbs “subsidize Vancouver for its high police costs.” But Vancouver clearly subsidizes the suburbs by having to foot the bill for major events that draw people from across the Lower Mainland — most of the hockey rioters, after all, were from Surrey. So whether it’s keeping costs low for residents — which, yes, is the job of a mayor, even if it’s plain to see the suburbs are taking advantage of the situation — or keeping a local feel, mayors have their reasons for wanting to stick with the status quo. The problem is, as the Wally Oppal commission pointed out, Robert Pickton would likely have been caught much sooner if Metro Vancouver didn’t have a patchwork collection of police forces refusing to share information. Yes, the lines of communication may have opened as a result of the Pickton case — as mayors like to point out — but they’re probably not as open as they would be with a regional force. So we’ll continue with the status quo — and hope another predator like Pickton isn’t able to exploit the current divisions in policing. Wouldn’t that be a horrible debate to have?

Obsession with fame and glory is huge at this stage in our world’s history, and when it comes to chaos and massacres people want to go out with a bang. Part of the fuel for these mass killings is the drive to have their name go down in history, even if they’re going to die. As these mass murders continue to go on, it seems that the culprits are trying to upstage the last one. Each time, they add a new horrific element that makes us all cringe to believe that someone would do such a thing. America is a hugely important nation in our world, but sometimes I think Americans forget to step back and take a look at the big picture. Right now the big picture is a country paralyzed in fear: adults buying as many weapons as they can to protect themselves, and children outfitted in the latest trend — bulletproof children’s wear accessorized with bulletproof backpacks that can double as a shield. Would Thomas Jefferson still have said “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms” if he could see the havoc that is striking America today?

You can gain insight from quitting drugs Re: “Reefer madness?” letter to the editor, Wednesday, Jan. 23. After spending last evening at another meeting of Narcotics Anonymous, I find it laughable to read this statement: “… most people who use these drugs have positive experiences, gain inspiration and insight and would mostly use them again given the chance to do so.” And so the drug’s lure has begun to lead you into addiction. The truth is, recovering addicts gain insights, positive experiences and inspiration after they stop doping and live a clean life. As for the soft-sell, misunderstood cannabis, the fact is the new product is more potent every year, not to mention highly addictive. Contrary to the Internet’s many reports of it not being addictive, I can introduce you to “lifers” who just can’t shake that crap, and all of them live in near-poverty. Or come to the meetings and meet those who have broken the addiction and listen to their story: the truth. When entering into mind-altering substances, you need to check in with yourself. Why do I need to risk possible entrapment when life has so many other choices? Try parachuting instead. Angela Tahara Port Coquitlam

A terrible disease Re: “Sharing the story of Alzheimer’s,” Friday, Jan. 25. Thank you for publishing the article on Alzheimer’s and the interview with a family member. It is important to share stories in order to raise awareness and to break down the barriers of social stigma which still surround this disease. However, Alzheimer’s is so much more than repeating conversations and general forgetfulness. Alzheimer’s can mean not being able to coordinate getting socks and shoes on To The both feet. Alzheimer’s may be randomly wandering away from home and having no idea how to get back. The disease may result in an individual needing to be watched 24 hours of the day, seven days a week. Alzheimer’s can rob a person of the ability to speak. It can involve a lack of understanding of time and not knowing the difference between day and night. As it progresses, Alzheimer’s often means being unable to take care of one’s basic personal needs, and experiencing paranoia and mood swings. This is the reality of the disease, which patients, families and caregivers face on a daily basis, and this is the disease for which we must find effective treatment and, ultimately, a cure. K.

Hunting is more ethical than buying factory-raised meat Re: “Debating the ethics of hunting,” letter to the editor, Wednesday, Jan. 9. Mr. Grindley-Ferris looks at his non-caring, very cruel world with naiveté and rose-coloured glasses. Has he ever visited a feed lot where cattle are prepared for the slaughter house? Has he ever seen and smelt the terror of the animals awaiting their end in the abattoir? Has he examined the Editor diet and medication given to his purposebred steers to produce the highest financial return for the corporate farmer? It is at best nauseating and decidedly uncaring and cruel. Meat on the store counter is not manufactured in a factory. It is produced by commercial interests at that cheapest price that the consumer strives for. Has he ever read the history of wildlife numbers in North America over the last two centuries? At the start of the 20th century most game animals had been slaughtered to near extinction by commercial interests. What has Mr. Grindley-Ferris ever contributed to wildlife habitat? The hunters have restored the game and its environment to the point where more deer are killed

Two new federal ridings created for Tri-Cities Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com It looks like the Pitt River will continue to be the divider between the Tri-Cities and Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge, both geographically and politically. A commission set up to reconfigure the federal ridings in B.C. has opted to create two ridings for the Tri-Cities — Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam and Port Moody-Coquitlam. The commission originally attached a portion of PoCo into a riding with Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge, which also split the city into three federal ridings.

It was a proposal that sparked plenty of opposition from local politicians on the west side of the Pitt River. In its final report, the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission noted the unfavourable view of the original plan and opted for a change. It’s a move greeted with applause by PoCo Mayor Greg Moore. He said the initial map that divided the city into three ridings made no sense for Port Coquitlam. “We, in our [City of Port Coquitlam] opinion, would have been the afterthought to whoever would have been representing us,” Moore told

The NOW. “We got exactly what we had suggested, so we’re really pleased.” The mayor, along with several local, provincial and federal politicians, spoke out against the original map at a set of public hearings last fall. Moore suggested PoCo shares a lot with the northern part of Coquitlam, including police and geographical boundaries. “It makes a lot of sense we’d be together,” he said. According to the new map laid out by the commission, the new Port CoquitlamCoquitlam riding includes the entire city of PoCo and parts of Coquitlam Centre north

of the Barnet and Lougheed highways. The Port Moody-Coquitlam riding includes all of Port Moody, Belcarra and Anmore and parts of Coquitlam south

River focus of website

If you’re looking for information on the best places to tour the Coquitlam River, a new website has you covered. The Coquitlam River Watershed Roundtable recently unveiled a brand new website at www. coquitlamriverwatershed.ca. It features a tour of nine places along the Coquitlam River, from the dam at Coquitlam Lake to Kwikwetlem First Nation at Colony Farm, where the Coquitlam River empties into the Fraser River. It also features videos and photos taken within the watershed, a fully searchable database of documents and maps, a calendar of events, and a news archive.

According to the organization’s press release, a website with virtual tours was identified as the first priority project to be undertaken by the Coquitlam River Watershed Roundtable when it was formed in 2011. “The website is a dynamic one,” said Elaine Willis, a member of the Coquitlam River Watershed Roundtable and the Tri-City Green Council, in a statement. “We are inviting other partners — including local businesses, institutions and organizations that share our common vision of a healthy Coquitlam River Watershed, to partner with us to expand and contribute to the content of our website.”

But by December, tight little catkins appear and by the end of February have opened up into long, yellow flowering catkins.

Fundata awards B.C. mutual funds top Canadian A+ rating By Brian Bridger and Reid Baker While Toronto likes to hog the limelight as Canada’s financial centre, never let it be said that Vancouver can’t compete. In fact, two Vancouver-based funds were acknowledged as among the best of the best in the West, winning an annual Fundata FundGrade® A+ Rating for mutual funds. The annual FundGrade A+ Rating builds on the already popular FundGrade rating system by singling out funds that have been able to keep a consistently high FundGrade throughout the calendar year. Two high-performing Vancouver-based mutual funds demonstrated what it takes to be considered right up there with the best of the best in 2012. Pender Small Cap Opportunities Fund This fund had a banner year in 2012. With a calendar year return of 31.3%, compared with a return of -0.5% for the S&P/TSX Capped Composite Total Return Index, it’s easy to see why this fund earned a FundGrade A+ award for 2012. The fund’s impressive calendar year return ranked second among its peers in the Canadian Small/Mid

Cap Equity category, which posted an average return of 5.7%. Managed by David Barr, who is also Pender’s Chief Investment Officer, the fund takes a value-investing approach, looking for well-managed small-cap businesses that are overlooked by the market and have the potential for significant capital appreciation. The relatively small portfolio of 35 holdings includes names like QHR Technologies Inc., a healthcare technology supplier, Absolute Software Corp., a security management software provider, and Redline Communications Group Inc., a holdings company with several subsidiaries in the communications industry. The fund also takes on only a relatively small amount of risk to achieve its impressive returns. Threeyear annualized standard deviation (a measure of a fund’s volatility) is 13.0% compared with an average 15.0% for the category. Steadyhand Equity Fund This fund has become one of the top performing and most consistent funds in the Canadian Focused Equity

category. In 2012, the fund gained 15.6%, one of the highest calendar returns in the category. Remarkably, this outperformance has come with lower-than-average volatility. Earning 8.3% on a 3-year average compound return basis, the fund significantly outperformed the Canadian Focused Equity average of 2.4%, while limiting volatility to a standard deviation of just 10.0%, much lower than the 11.6% category average. In 5-year performance, the Steadyhand Equity Fund was one of only a few funds that did not lose money. It managed a gain of 1.6% during the period, despite dropping over 27% in calendar 2008. Ted Ecclestone of CGOV Asset Management manages the fund for Steadyhand. He invests in companies of all sizes, seeking profitable, well managed businesses with a sustainable competitive advantage. The portfolio is very concentrated, with only about 20 to 25 holdings at any given time. The majority of the fund is invested in Canadian equities, with top holdings that include Toronto-Dominion Bank, Crescent Point Energy Corp., and Suncor Energy Inc.

Women track today, men plan for tomorrow: How couples manage money Household bills are a common topic of conversation for couples, but do they talk about planning their financial future? The TD Women Investor Poll found that half of Canadian couples share responsibility for most household finances. But among couples who divide financial responsibilities, women are more likely to handle day-to-day finances, such as budgeting and paying bills, while men manage investments and long-term retirement planning. “Couples need to work as a team to plan for their future,” says Kim Parlee, a vice president for TD Wealth Management. “Managing day-to-day finances is

certainly important, but planning for the longterm is essential and something that you both should be involved in.” Parlee shares the following advice on financial planning, managing investments and taking control of your financial future together: Define your goals: Discuss both of your priorities for the future, and your risk tolerance to ensure you’re both

comfortable with how you’re working towards common goals. Create and follow a financial plan: According to the poll, less than half (44%) of women have a financial plan. To reach your goals, create a plan that starts with understanding your current financial situation. Think long term: Where do you want to be in the next 10, 20 or 30 years?

Are you on the same page with your partner? What are the associated expenses? You can calculate to ensure you’re on track to make these goals a reality. Don’t forget to consider retirement as a savings goal: it’s never too early (or too late) to start planning and saving.

Uncovering the meanings behind emblems David Chao editorial@thenownews.com

A

s I glanced over my shoulder to change lanes, a shiny red BMW M3 zoomed by me as if it was being swept by a tornado. The car appeared to be in a perfect condition, but then I quickly noticed the missing blue-and-white emblems from not only the hood and the trunk, but from all four crosslaced aluminum wheels as well. “Poor guy,” I murmured, knowing that this BMW was another victim of vandals who snatch emblems and logos to make fashionable necklaces and belt buckles. But how many of us, including the vandals, actually know the meaning behind emblems that represent these automobiles? Some have a long history behind them, while others portray something fairly simple. Since many of the automotive emblems are obvious (such as Ford and Nissan, who spell out

their names), only the interesting and unusual ones will be discussed here. The Japanese manufacturers have brought a number of unique, innovative vehicles to the market in the past several years, including the Toyota Prius, Scion FR-S, and Nissan Leaf models. However, I wish they had used more imagination with their emblems. Many of them are similar in design, utilizing some kind of symbol inside an ellipse — all chrome-plated. Nevertheless, they do have a meaning behind them. Toyota’s logo, for example, consists of three ellipses, whose two central points represent the heart of their customers and products. The ellipses symbolically join the two hearts, according to Toyota. Also, you can see the ellipsoidal-shaped “T” inside the large ellipse. Acura’s emblem is perhaps simpler to decipher. The word Acura symbolizes accuracy or accurate, and the emblem therefore depicts a caliper (an instrument used to measure objects accurately). Imagine standing in the middle of a road, and looking straight ahead where the road seems to go infinitely. You just pictured for yourself the symbolic shape of Infiniti’s logo: the road to infinity. Mazda has an interesting history behind its logos. Many years ago, Mazda launched a new emblem for the export market. It was supposed to depict “the sun and a flame standing for heartfelt passion.” Whatever that means. Then Mazda had to quickly alter the logo by rounding off the diamond inside the ellipse, because the emblem was similar to Renault’s corporate logo (and they threatened to sue). So in 1998, Mazda redesigned the symbol once again. The new version, which was developed by a well-known corporate identification creator in Japan (Rei Yoshimura), shows a “V” in the centre of “M.” According to Mazda, it stands for creativity, flexibility, and vitality. Unlike the previous emblem, the new brand symbol

is being used for all Mazda products throughout the world. Subaru’s emblem is one of the more distinctive ones, with six stars representing the original five companies that merged in 1953 to form a sixth — Fuji Heavy Industries. Subaru, by the way, appropriately means “unite” in Japanese. What about the American brands? You bet, they’ve got plenty of history behind their logos too. Cadillac’s original crest, which is considerably more elaborate yet very regal in appearance, is really the coat of arms of Le Sieur Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac. He was a French explorer who established the Ville d’Etroit in 1701. Recently, Cadillac introduced a revised new emblem for its cars. Although its basic design is similar to the old one, the new version boasts a more slick, modernized look that should appeal to the younger crowd. Chevrolet’s logo is much more unpretentious than Cadillac’s,  CONT. ON PAGE 22, see SIMPLE OR STYLIZED? LOGOS TELL A STORY.

and simply designates a “bow tie”. Pontiac’s is simple too. Its stylized arrowhead was adopted after first appearing on the rear fenders of the 1954 Pontiac Star Chief. Chrysler’s Pentastar emblem was created by Lippincott & Margulies design team, who wanted to symbolize Chrysler’s products as progressive and contemporary. The jewel-like clarity of the mark’s outline is supposed to reflect Chrysler’s precisionengineering traits. Many years ago, however, Chrysler began using a different logo for its products. More nostalgic and rich looking, the new corporate symbol was developed by “bringing back” an old, classic emblem from Chrysler’s past. European automakers’ insignia have more history and are probably more easily recognized. For example, virtually everyone recognizes Rolls Royce’s Spirit of Ecstasy and Mercedes’ three-pointed star. The idea for Mercedes-Benz’s three-pointed star originated from a postcard that Mr. Daimler sent to his wife. On it, he drew a guiding star and wrote, “A star shall arise from here, and I hope that it will bring blessings to us and to our children.” The form of the star, which was registered in 1909, was intended to symbolize the three fold nature of transport motorization: on land, sea and in the air. BMW produced aircraft engines during the Second World War, and the shape of the propeller became BMW’s famous symbol. Audi’s “interlocking rings” denote the four companies, DKW, Horch, Wanderer, and Audi, which pooled resources together during the 1930s to cope with the recession. So here we have it. Every company trying to symbolically, historically, or visually represent themselves through a shiny piece of metal (actually plastic nowadays). Let’s just hope the teenage vandals will stop trying to do the same.

REAL ESTATE TRI-CITIES MAKING A STRONG FIRST IMPRESSION How to improve your home’s curb appeal. (MC) – Men and women who have tried to sell a home are likely familiar with the phrase“curb appeal.”Curb appeal is similar to getting ready for a big date, only you’re not dressing yourself up to make a strong first impression. Instead, improving curb appeal involves dressing your home up in the hopes it makes a strong first impression on prospective buyers, many of whom will have a strong opinion about the property before they even get out of their cars to have a look around. A home with strong curb appeal can entice buyers who are likely to believe that a home with a well-maintained exterior is likely to have an equally impressive interior. Homeowners who want the process of selling their home to go smoothly can improve the property’s curb appeal in a number of ways, many of which don’t necessitate a substantial home improvement budget.

that prospective buyers will be entering through the front door, so make this area accessible. Clear any clutter, such as overgrown hedges, away from the front door, and consider upgrading the door handle to a more modern feature. In addition, make sure the lock on the front door doesn’t stick, forcing the realtor and buyers to immediately struggle before entering the home. You want buyers and their real estate agents to get in and out of the home as smoothly as possible.

• MAKE SURE ALL PLANTS, INCLUDING FLOWERS, ARE LIVING. Dehydrated or dead plants and flowers are eyesores, and they will give buyers the impression that you didn’t pay much attention to your property. Make sure all plants are alive and thriving and replace those that aren’t. You can replant new flowers or plants or just use potted plants instead. When purchasing new plants, choose low-maintenance varieties that appeal to buyers who want good vibrant plants but might not want to put much work into the garden.

• CLEAN THE GUTTERS. Leaves and sticks hanging from the gutters are a red flag to buyers, who tend to associate clogged gutters with roof damage. Clean the gutters thoroughly before putting your home up for sale and keep them clean throughout the selling process. If your property includes lots of trees, install guards to keep twigs and leaves out of the gutters. • MAKE THE HOME ACCESSIBLE THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR. Many homeowners enter their home through a side door or through their garage. If you fall into this category, keep in mind

• TAKE TO THE TREES. Many homeowners grow accustomed to overgrown trees around their property and may not notice that lowhanging, unsightly branches are hiding the home from view. Buyers want to see the house, so take to the trees and trim any branches that hang too low or obscure your home.

• CLEAN UP. The most effective way to improve curb appeal is to clean up the property. Many homeowners are savvy enough to remove toys and other items from the yard before showing a home, but cleaning up goes beyond removing clutter from the property. Make sure all hedges are trimmed and remove weeds, sticks and other debris from any flower beds. Lay mulch in the flower beds and garden, as mulch prevents weed growth while helping the soil retain moisture, resulting in more attractive gardens to catch a buyer’s eye.

Chambers takes Hall of Fame honour in stride Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Those who know Rich Chambers well are aware of the dichotomy that is one of B.C.’s most dynamic basketball coaches. On the court, the super-intense instructor maintains a laser-like focus on the things that matter, pacing the sidelines like a hummingbird with a beak full of sugar. Away from the court, the long-time counsellor at Terry Fox Secondary has an easy-going nature that he splices with gracious comments and a quick self-deprecating wit. So when congratulated Thursday on being inducted into Basketball BC’s Hall of Fame, Chambers accepted it in his own humble fashion. “What does it mean? It means I’m old,” quipped the Port Moody resident. “Seriously, it’s an incredible honour when you hear the people who have been inducted and honoured. It’s a great group of people to be considered and mentioned with.” His resume includes head coach of Basketball B.C.’s Centre for Performance, numerous national, university and high school programs, and a variety of provincial squads. Chambers is joined by fellow coaching luminaries Allison McNeill and one-time Port Coquitlam resident Tim Frick, athletes Teresa Gabriele and Phil Ohl and official Dean MacKinnon. For Chambers, who is currently on leave from his position as head coach of the University of Victoria’s women’s team, there have been a variety of  CONT. ON PAGE 33, see FORMER.

Express’ owners plan for next year Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Frustration, disappointment and heartbreak could describe the feelings among the Coquitlam Express these days. Despite trailing the Langley Rivermen by three points for the final playoff spot with 12 games left in the B.C. Hockey League’s regular season, Coquitlam refuses to relinquish hope. For team president Darcy Rota, it’s an important element that can’t be underestimated during the next few weeks. A member of the Express ownership group, Rota agrees the season hasn’t unfolded as planned, but credits the players for displaying dogged determination. Bad luck began to dog the team early, beginning with the first game of the season when veteran defenceman Jason Bird was lost to a severely separated shoulder. A similar injury cost them Alexander Kerfoot, the New Jersey Devils’ draft pick, in late November — and since then the club has grasped at glimmers of hope with limited success. At 18-25-1 and with 11 games remaining, including games in Vernon and Penticton this weekend, NOW file photo the team has had to embrace an optimistic outlook.

Kodiaks prep for stretch drive Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com For the Heritage Woods Kodiaks, third spot was the reward for an interesting charge through the Bill Kushnir Memorial basketball tournament last week in Delta. The unranked Kodiaks crossed paths with a couple of key Fraser Valley competitors, including the top-ranked Yale Lions in the semifinal. Heritage Woods had trouble containing the deep Lions lineup, which racked up an 86-52 victory en route to the tourney title. Four Yale players hit double digits scoringwise, as they emerged with a firm 25-6 lead after one quarter. “Against Yale, we looked a little shellshocked in the first quarter as we hadn’t seen defensive intensity to that degree all season,” remarked Kodiaks coach Greg Schellenberg in an e-mail. “But we made some adjustments at the break, settled our nerves, and played real determined basketball the rest of the way. Unfortunately, we just didn’t match up with Yale’s size and athleticism.” Dakota Johnston was the top shooter for the

Rogers scores conference freshman prize Coquitlam’s Brittany Rogers is spearheading a University of Georgia Gym Dogs revival. The Canadian Olympian helped the No. 8-ranked Georgia gymnastics team capture fourth place at last week’s Metroplex Challenge in Fort Worth, TX. The performance earned her the Southeastern Conference’s Freshman of the Week award.

The first-year student/athlete scored career highs in three events, including tying for second on the vault with a score of 9.9. She led the team on both vault and bars with identical 9.9 scores. Rogers, 19, also posted a 9.825 on the balance beam. In individual NCAA rankings, Rogers is tied for 20th spot on vault.

Despite missing starters Justin Chohan and Tamam Gasmalla, Heritage Woods played well inside the zone and mainained an advantage most of the way. “St. Pat’s sat in a zone the entire game, but Ryan Salberg and Damian Yeo dominated with their post-to-post action inside the zone,” Schellenberg noted. “We’re a small team, so we need to be constantly looking to push the tempo offensively,” said Schellenberg. “Sometimes we get caught allowing other teams to dictate the tempo to our games, but for us to be successful we need to be the ones setting the tempo.” They opened the tourney by sliding past honourable mention Delta 76-71. Johnston was named to the Kushnir Memorial all-star team. “Dakota has been a real key for us this year, both offensively and defensively, and it’s nice to see that he finally had some recognition,” added the coach. “He shot the ball well from outside all weekend, and was key for us anytime we needed to get to the rim.”

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your popularity rides a sweet wave; social delights, entertainment, flirtation and light romance fill your days – especially Friday/ Saturday. This is a great time to join a group. Still, your personal clout is beginning to wane slightly, so avoid being forceful, especially in practical or ‘dominance’ contests. Sunday’s for secrets, intimacy, financial ponderings. Someone’s attracted to you Monday/ Tuesday; far travel, school, law and cultfure go well also – after Monday morn. Be ambitious Wednesday: you’ll succeed if you down-tone rebelliousness, opt for communication, affection. Taurus April 20-May 20: Be ambitious, Taurus, especially Friday/Saturday. (This can affect any area – for instance, if you’re buying a condo, buy ‘up.’) Community status, career, relations with bosses, parents and VIPs, are part of the picture. Higher-ups favour you all February – propose plans, projects. Someone wants to be ‘friends,’ but he/she could lead you to compromising situations – he/she’s nervous, assertive. Be diplomatic Sunday. Large finances, sexual intimacy lure you, and succeed Monday noon (not earlier) into Tuesday. Gentle love, learning, law or travel arise Wednesday/Thursday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A gentle, understanding mood continues. Seize this time, this atmosphere: seek love, attend cultural venues, travel afar, attend/apply to a school, seek publishing/media opportunities – especially Friday/Saturday. Tackle routine or non-challenging chores Sunday. Relationships fill Monday/Tuesday – after Monday morning, these links hold opportunities and success. Tell your mate, ‘I want to do this, because it will benefit you.’ Midweek brings sexual urges, financial astuteness, and revealing detective work. Friendships challenge, but wisdom and love bring you luck – and travel?

Cancer June 21-July 22: Secrets and ‘levers of power rise quietly around you, like hillocks on a prairie. This week and next, push steadily forward toward an investment, financial, lifestyle, health or intimacy goal – especially Friday/Saturday, when a new link or opportunity could occur. (But reject any idea or opening that occurs between 10 p.m. PST Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday.) Sunday’s for romance, pleasure – but stick with the known. Tackle chores Monday/ Tuesday. Relationships, negotiations, a meeting with someone who makes something deep stir within you, new horizons arrive Wednesday/Thursday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Relationships come front and center over the next two weeks, Leo – especially this Friday/Saturday. ‘Relationships’ includes emotional and practical or business links, new opportunities, fresh horizons (and possible relocation) – co-operation and opposition. Be diplomatic, but eager to join. Approach others, praise others, seek common ground. Sunday’s for domestic rest – nap, love family, turn on that old music. Romance calls Monday/Tuesday – singles could meet a future mate prospect. Couples find pleasure. To work, and guard health, midweek. Smile at the world Friday/Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Only two weeks left of work and health concerns, Virgo. Might as well plunge into those chores, especially Friday/ Saturday, when a rather significant new task, even new employment, could begin. (Forget resumes: be direct.) Sunday’s restless, not much use. Home chores run into confusion Monday morning (spouse has doubts?) but this p.m. to midday Tuesday offers big steps forward on the home front if you make the effort. Repair, decorate, landscape, prepare kids’ future(s). Romantic and creative urges fill midweek – an incident or alluring person offers a new view of mating.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Games, sports, pleasure, romance, beauty, creativity and self-expression call you – answering will bring luck, especially this Friday/ Saturday. This month could start or further one of the most significant romances of your life. (If you’re married, joy comes from spouse, kids, and adventures – take a family trip.) There is serious love and easy love. Your best ‘mate prospect’ has a load of work lowered onto his/her shoulders: be understanding. Unattached Librans might fall for a co-worker. Spend frugally Sunday. Friends, calls, trips Monday/Tuesday. Home, family Wednesday/Thursday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The main accent this week and next lies on homes, family, security, property, gardening, nutrition, stomach and soul. (Funny how these last two are linked in many religions and mantic arts.) Friday/Saturday might start a new project or trend in these zones. Get plenty of rest (power naps) and show your family your loving heart. (Unlike January, February spreads a balm of affection through your domicile.) Your energy’s high Sunday: tackle minor problems. Chase money, buy/sell, Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings errands, friends, paperwork, a nd a potentially great investment (a home?). Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The two weeks ahead are not important, but they sure are active. You’ll call, write, answer, visit, perform errands, paperwork, and perhaps travel. A new venture could start in any of these Friday/Saturday. Earlier, Sunday’s for rest, quiet activities. Your energy and pizzazz soar Monday/Tuesday – start projects, relationships after Monday morning (a confusing time). Make money or shop Wednesday. This day might end one link, begin another; or, after disagreement, bring a stronger love. A new person might develop into loving friendship ‘with benefits’ – even into marriage.

February 3 - 9, 2013 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Chase money for the next two weeks, Cap, especially this Friday/Saturday, when a new money-making project could start. (DON’T start it between 10 p.m. Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday – PST.) Your income luck remains good all month; you’ll have enough to purchase a luxury item. You grow more assertive in communications – that’s good, but don’t overdo it. Sunday’s hopeful, friendly. Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Monday/Tuesday – approach government or other agencies.Your energy and charm return, buoyantly, Wednesday/Thursday – home frustrates, but work/money please! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, charm and effectiveness reach a yearly high this week and next, Aquarius, especially this Friday/Saturday. If you haven’t yet begun a significant project, do so now. Sunday’s for career and prestige, but nothing’s solid here. Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/ Tuesday – a wish could come true. Get out, plan entertainment, join a group – they’ll ‘love’ you. Retreat to catch a second breath Wednesday/Thursday: rest, contemplate and plan. (The best plans might be based on what occurred earlier this week.) Friday/Saturday, chase what/who you want: desire’s lucky. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Continue to lie low, rest, recuperate, contemplate and plan. Your clout in the world is at a low ebb for the two weeks ahead; but your skill and effect in ‘background’ areas is admirable. Background = spirit, charity, government, warehousing, administration, institutions, meditation, yoga, etc. Jump into these, especially Friday/Saturday, when a ‘new note’ (though a slender one) might fill this arena. Sunday’s idealistic, intellectual, mellow. Be ambitious Monday/Tuesday. Happiness, hopes for the future, perhaps a light romantic notion, arise Wednesday (watch money) and Thursday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
