It’s Police investigate fatal train crash time to West Coast Express collision causes delays in Monday morning commute SHARE Stories by Sam Smith editorial@thenownews.com

Did you remember the foodbank today? If not, don’t worry, there’s still time. SHARE is opening up an entire semi-trailer in hopes of stuffing it full of non-perishables at a family friendly Food Bank Fill Up event at Coquitlam Centre tomorrow (Thursday, July 21). Development director Heather Scott said staff and volunteers will be out from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. with plenty of activities available. “First and foremost, there’s going to be food for people to enjoy, face painting for kids and the children can sign their names on a sign to hang in the food bank,” Scott said. “It’s a really great way to participate in helping the food bank.” But to do so, they’re going to need as much help as they can get. “We’re setting a record for most food raised in 12 hours,” Scott said. “I’d love to see more than 500 people show.” When asked if she thinks that’s an attainable goal, Scott only had one response. “With this community? Absolutely,” she said. “This community is extraordinary in support of their foodbank.” SHARE helps more than 900 Tri-Cities families every two weeks, and distributes 5,500 pounds of food each week. With such a high and steady demand, they’re having trouble coming up with a consistent flow of food to those who need it. “We’ve run entirely out of things like rice, and rice is a staple item,” Scott explained. “So we’ll begin substituting in pasta. So what happens is we begin to juggle within the  SEE PAGE 4, FOOD.

Coquitlam RCMP are reviewing video surveillance footage after a man was killed after being struck by a West Coast Express train at 7:09 a.m. Monday morning. Insp. Davis Wendell said the RCMP will be speaking with multiple witnesses who were at Coquitlam Station that morning. “At this point, there’s nothing that leads us to believe the death is suspicious,” Wendell explained. He said police responded to the call at just after 7

a.m. and found the deceased man on scene. “All investigation avenues are being pursued to find out what happened and find out what caused this tragedy,” he said. Wendell did, however, point out they are only just starting their investigation and this could change in the next few days. “We’ll know more in the next two days, but what we can say for now is that tragically, a gentleman has passed away.” Wendell said next of kin had been notified, and police would not release the victim’s identity. Police said the man was hit by the third of the five-train service.

Trains 4 and 5 were able to pick people up and take them as far as the Port Coquitlam Station following the incident. The delay caused 900 people to be re-routed during the morning rush hour. “The SkyTrain Millenium Line extended their rush hour service for additional time to carry the anticipated extra number of people,” TransLink’s Drew Snider said. Snider added they added shuttle bus service to connect commuters to available SkyTrain stations, such as Lougheed Station. By 11 a.m., he said the tracks were cleared, but police needed the station for the investigation. By 3:30 p.m., the train was in operation for the afternoon rush.

Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini will not seek a fifth term in office.

Destroying bears a last resort: conservation D estroying a bear or a cougar is not an easy choice and definitely not one the Conservation Office want to make, but sometimes it has to be done, says one officer. Shortly after a bear was shot in Coquitlam, news broke that more bears were destroyed last year than relocated or rehabilitated in the province. Sgt. Murray Smith of the Conservation Officer Service defended their record Tuesday. How and why bears or cougars will be put down ultimately comes down to whether the animal is a threat to humans, he said. “If a bear is perceived to be

a threat to human safety, the bear would be destroyed if we had no other alternatives,” Smith said. Smith said his office has received 455 bear calls in the Tri-Cities since April. Of those calls, four bears have been destroyed. “What that tells me is my staff are making good decisions,” Smith said. “They’re not running around destroying bears just because they’re there. “We never got into this job to destroy wildlife,” he added. “But public safety is our No. 1 mandate.” Alternatives exist like relocating the bear or scaring it back into the forest. But, he

said, relocation or chasing the animal isn’t possible in certain cases for a few reasons. “When dealing with bears, we’re going to say first off, ‘Where is it?’” Smith said. “If it’s on the edge of a large forested area, there’s a strong likelihood the bear will go into the natural area and not cause harm.” However, when the animal is in Town Centre Park and eating out of the garbage, such as one bear destroyed last week, it becomes a different story. “If it becomes food conditioned and starts going into the garbage to eat, it’s similar to a drug addict, it can’t get off that source of food,”

Smith said. “It’s dependent. That combination of food conditioning with non-natural foods and human habituation.” He said once a bear loses its fear of humans, and starts to associate humans as a source of food, the bear becomes too dangerous. “That’s not the kind of bear we want to put out in the forest where we’re going to have logging camps and campers,” Smith said. “Consider the safety risk if the bear runs into people and makes that connection with humans and food.” Another point the officers look at is what does the area look like, and what is the hist-

ory on that bear. “We keep a database that tells us exactly where the bears are located,” Smith explained. “When we start to get 15, 20, 30 calls in a threeto five-block radius, we can pretty well tell it’s one bear in that area.” The officers examine where the calls came from and look for things like schools and parks. If the bear is found close to either of these, the threat becomes higher. While some residents argue efforts should be made to conserve a bear’s life at all costs, Smith said it’s not that easy. “It’s not like we can take a  SEE PAGE 5, TRANQUILIZED.

Coquitlam and region seal deal on growth strategy Kelly Sinoski Postmedia News Metro Vancouver has reached agreement with the City of Coquitlam over its regional growth strategy, ending a months-long impasse and preventing the plan from becoming an election issue.

Metro chief administrative officer Johnny Carline said the two sides reached consensus through a nonbinding dispute resolution on issues around regional significance, as well as ways to ensure all cities have the opportunity to consider amendments and five-year reviews of the plan. Coquitlam had worried that the plan was inconsistent across the

region and gave too much power to larger cities such as Burnaby, Vancouver and Richmond at the expense of smaller ones. It had sought the ability to force a review of the growth strategy every five years with one-third of the vote rather than 50 per cent. Carline said the issue will instead be dealt with by allowing a “pre-pro-

cess” ahead of a potential review to allow a thorough canvassing of ideas throughout the region on how the plan was working. The regional district board on Friday gave a second reading to the agreement, which still has to be approved by Coquitlam council. Mayor Richard Stewart said most of the councillors support the changes.

Coquitlam had been the lone holdout against the plan, which was approved earlier this year by every other Metro municipality, Tsawwassen First Nation and two neighbouring regional districts. The plan provides a regional blueprint that lays out how Metro Vancouver is going to develop in the next 30 years.

tranquilized in a subdivision if it’s up a tree or in a trap, but then only if it’s not food conditioned. If it is, then they must destroy the animal. Some have also questioned whether the animal should be scared away. Smith said shooting a rubber bullet or a bean bag at the animal to chase it away in a

populated area is too much a risk. “What happens if we’re trying to corral it into the forest, and it hops a fence and goes into a daycare or hops into a backyard with two kids?” “How can we take that chance?” he asked.

Protecting parks a mandate for us all

It’s been a modest celebration so far, but an important one — and last weekend, the public had the chance to take part. Since January, Parks Canada has been quietly celebrating their centennial. Parks Day was marked across the country with free entry into Parks Canada sites last weekend. Here in B.C., we are lucky enough to have multiple national parks and heritage sites under the Parks Canada banner. Its mandate, in part, is to protect nationally significant examples of Canada’s natural heritage. In other words, they do their best to protect all those wonderful places that make Canada what it is: wild, beautiful, majestic and full of a unique history. B.C. Parks marked its 100th birthday earlier this year in March, with the centennial anniversary of the creation of the first provincial park. Both organizations no doubt face challenges unprecedented in their 100-year histories, with pressures as varied as battling to save at-risk species and dealing with climate change, to facing tighter governmental budgets and encroaching development. As a country, we must do what we can to ensure that our natural spaces and historic sites are preserved so that, many generations from now, future British Columbians, Canadians and visitors from around the world will still be able to enjoy them. We also must do it so that the flora and fauna that call them home will continue to thrive and be protected. So get out camping, go for a hike, take a road trip to an old fort or settlement site. The same applies for local parks and public places: discover what’s on offer right here at home. The more valuable and cherished these places are to each of us, the more people there will be to stand up to protect them when needed.

of the last fiscal year (which ended last March 31) and resulted in contributing several hundred million dollars in unanticipated revenue for the government. By the way, this last point is why I think people are fooling themselves if they think their personal finances will vastly improve if the HST disappears. Falcon says he can deal with that $3-billion hole, but he’s signalled one way to soften the blow: revisit the things that were exempt from the PST if we go back to the old tax system. So don’t bet that restaurant meals, to use just one example, will once again be exempt from the PST. Everything is back on the table when it comes to any exemptions, as the government will likely seek ways to boost revenue from the PST and an easy way to do that is to simply make more things taxable. The potential headaches flowing from getting rid of the HST are one thing, but what really has Falcon spooked are the external events happening around the world. As we saw in the 2008 recession, no government is immune from the external machinations of the world economy if they are large enough. Falcon admits that two-per-cent growth projection for this year may actually prove to be too lofty if things really tank. If that worst-case scenario does indeed occur, Falcon will go from being a nervous finance minister to a panic-stricken one. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Letters

Concentration paints imperfect pesticide picture Re: “Provincial ban needed,” letter to the editor, Wednesday, July 6. The anti-pesticide campaign fronted by the Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment (CAPE) has been long on politicized rhetoric and very short on credible scientific information. The letter from CAPE executive director Gideon Forman is a prime example. Mr. Forman claims that following the introduction of the pesticide ban in Ontario, “concentrations of some herbicides dropped as much as 97 per cent in some urban streams.” That statement is highly misleading. The fact is that pesticides are chemical compounds made up of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen atoms. They all have what is called a “half-life,” which is defined as the time required for half of the compound to break down in the environment. The half-life of 2,4D — a very common weed killer — in soil is 10 days. In other words, 50 per cent of the 2,4D entering the soil breaks down into its component atoms after 10 days. After 50 days, three percent of the compound remains, and it continues to break down after that until none is left. The same is true for glyphosate, which is the active ingredient in Roundup, another very common weed killer. The half-life for Roundup is approximately 47 days. These herbicides do not persist in the environment, and trying to attribute lowering concentrations to any pesticide ban is not true. It is very unfortunate that Coquitlam council seems to believe that the public interest is served by allowing the Canadian Cancer

Society and CAPE to make any claims they want without asking for accountability. Rob Kyle Anmore

Debating energy facts Re: “Lobby group in disguise,” letter to the editor, Friday, July 8. Gary Huntbatch’s letter is the most irresponsible and blatantly misinformed letter about energy issues in B.C. that our group (B.C. Citizens for Green Energy) has ever seen. Virtually every rapid-fire claim made by Huntbatch is completely and utterly false. To begin with, Huntbatch claims that independent power producers (IPPs) “were created under premier To The Gordon Campbell.” This is absolutely false. Independent power producers have been operating in B.C. for several decades. They were supported and encouraged by the Socred government of the 1980s and the NDP government of the 1990s. Huntbatch also makes the highly inaccurate claim that run-of-river projects produce power “mainly in the spring runoff when we don’t need it.” This claim by Huntbatch is easily disproven and offers particularly strong evidence that his knowledge of energy production is seriously lacking and that he is no authority on the subject. Huntbatch is obviously unaware that runof-river projects are built to produce electricity across several seasons, not just in the spring as he claims. Likewise, Huntbatch is completely wrong in claiming that B.C. Transmission is forced to run power lines to independent projects. It is well-known that project proponents are the ones responsible for the cost of any transmis-

sion lines required to get their electricity to an interconnection point with B.C. Hydro’s transmission grid. And B.C. Hydro rates are not going up because of electricity purchases from independent producers, as Huntbatch claims. B.C. Hydro rates are going up because of the Crown utility’s $6 billion rejuvenation program aimed at rebuilding and updating the province’s core hydroelectric generating infrastructure and transmission systems, all of which are long overdue for renewal and reinvestment. In fact, of the total 32-per-cent rate increase proposed by B.C. Hydro over the next three years, only 2.6 per cent is attributable to electricity purchases from independent producers. Mr. Huntbatch is certainly entitled to his political views and Editor opinions, just as we are. However, any claims he makes must be supported by facts; and very clearly there are no facts that support the claims Mr. Huntbatch has chosen to make in his blatantly misinformed letter. Given the experience of our group over the past three years, we can only guess at Mr. Huntbatch’s motivation. Bruce Sanderson Co-spokesperson B.C. Citizens for Green Energy

Feds should pay HST back Re: “Students should vote No,” letter to the editor, Friday, July 15. In response to Mr. Bijan Ahmadian’s opinion on the HST/PST debate, may I present my opinion: In our last provincial election, then-premier Gordon Campbell promised the citizens of B.C. that he would not choose the HST. Then, when voters elected the Liberals to a majority, he

SIENNA

acted against his own promise and enacted the HST. In a way, he betrayed the citizens who elected his party. For the past year, the HST has taken an enormous amount of extra tax, which the federal government has received from B.C. citizens. We expect the federal government to pay back to our provincial treasury in the amount of around $200 million that is they owe us, minus the amount given to B.C. For the past year, when the unpopular HST had been enacted, our province has enjoyed collecting an extra amount of tax. We citizens of B.C. expect that our new premier will be kind to us, by reducing our PST by one or two per cent, to compensate. Our new premier is trying to reduce the HST by one per cent in 2012 and another one per cent in 2014. I am asking the citizens of British Columbia to vote Yes to extinguish the unpopular HST.

N

o one is playing the world’s smallest violin for Port Moody teen Chan Lee, as he is one of six youth this year, and the youngest of the group, to receive an Award of Excellence from the National Youth Orchestra of Canada. On top of that, Lee is going to be concert master and leading the orchestra during their summer tour around the country. At just 16 years old, the young violinist said he was humbled and honoured to be given the award. “For me, I feel honoured to be the youngest recipient of the Award of Excellence from the National Youth Orchestra of Canada,” Lee said.

“The scholarship will help me further expand my musical training.” Lee is training to one day complete his dream and become a concert master of a prestigious orchestra. And he’s taking all the necessary steps to do so. NYOC is one of Canada’s most praised youth orchestras, even being nominated for classical album of the year at the Juno Awards in 2009. All members must be between 16 and 28 years in its 90- to 100-member seating each year. This is Lee’s second time around, but just being in the orchestra once does not guarantee a seat. Lee knows this, and practices every single day just to have the chance to be a part of the organization. He competed against more than 500 applicants this year to be a part of the orchestra, and competed again against the remaining 100 for the Award of Excellence. This award is narrowed down to just six musicians who demonstrate leadership and a passion for music.

“This means that, usually, section leaders and/or a concert master is given the award,” Lee said. Getting there is half the battle. The other half is consistently keeping himself good enough to stay. When Lee isn’t playing music, he’s just a regular teen who goes to Port Moody Secondary School. He likes to listen to music, play sports, hit the gym and take some time to read. But for Lee, there’s nothing quite like walking onto that stage and playing for a group of people with fellow musicians. That’s why he has stuck with the violin since he was just six years old. The music seems to run through his family as well, as his brother Jin plays the piano. It’s this passion Lee has that drives him to practice and, one day, perhaps be the concert master of a prestigious orchestra. “In the first week of chamber music, I rehearsed around 65 hours,” Lee said. “Although it is lots of work, I enjoy the ambiance and the positive energy of my peers and coaches.” twitter.com/JournalistSam

Tri-Cities artists are joining forces to help inspire a nation that’s been dealt a tough hand. ArtsConnect is organizing a Pecha Kucha Night fundraiser for Monday, July 25 at the Evergreen Cultural Centre as a way of standing in solidarity with Japan as it grapples with the aftermath of its natural disaster. On March 11, Japan suffered what has been described as a 1,000 year event — an earthquake and tsunami that destroyed 400 km of coastline, killed more than 15,000 people, left 400,000 people homeless and triggered a nuclear situation that is still unfolding. Pecha Kucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat,” it is built on a presentation format based on a simple idea: 20 images by 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace. Monday’s event will serve as the fourth “volume” in the series, and will feature a host of local musical, visual and other artistic talent performing. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the show slated to begin at 7:30 p.m. The theatre is located at 1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam. Tickets are $12 and can be purchased by calling the box office at 604-927-6555. For information, visit www.pechakucha.org/night/coquitlam.

Evergreen Glass Studios is scoring points for marrying glass, art and architecture to produce a stained glass window for heritage-designated Ioco United Church in Port Moody. Pastor Kevin Hegseth expressed gratitude on behalf of the congregation for the gift of the window, installed several months ago and due to be officially dedicated on July 24. “It’s a beautiful glass window,” he said. “All of us like it.” It is so popular, he added, that several other parishioners are thinking of asking the artist to design and install stained-glass windows for their loved ones. Beth Thompson, owner of Evergreen Glass Studios, was commissioned last November by long-time Port Moody resident and church parishioner, Mary Anne Cooper, to design and install the window in memory of her deceased husband and son. “I wanted to give back to the Lord,” she explained. “It’s a gift of love —the love of my family.” The image, entitled “Sacred Tree,” depicts rocks, representing strength and faith, a tree for the cross and life, the sun as the light of God, a butterfly to symbolize the glory of eternal life, and a dove to represent the holy spirit and peace. Cooper and members of her family will be on hand to celebrate the official dedication of the window, later this month. Ioco United Church, formerly St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, is a tiny,

Songs for Peace kicks off Monday If you want to know whether a fruit is sweet, you need to eat it. For organizer James Khoo, that’s the concept behind Songs for World Peace: people who doubt a better world can be created through song should give music a chance first before making a decision. “The need for world peace is more urgent today than ever before and the efforts to achieve it never end and keep marching on,” Khoo said in a release. “It is going to take humanity serious time and devotion if we are ever to see it blossom.” Khoo said humans may be skeptical at heart, but his concert series in a park in Coquitlam is designed to help the inner optimist shine. “I like this single virtue called devotion, for it is the most important ingredient to ensure success in any human endeavor or quest,” he said. “Then the next important ingredient is faith, for all things become possible if we have strong faith.” The series fosters the notion that daily singing, meditation and chanting will bring about world peace through, as Khoo described, personal proactive efforts. Singing reduces stress levels, he said, and helps people live healthier and happier lives. Sessions are scheduled to begin Monday, July 25, and participants are asked to drop by the open field between Pinetree Way and Lafarge Lake from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Mondays and Thursdays. Tuesday and Friday sessions will run from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. at the tennis courts in Town Centre Park. Wednesdays and Saturdays will see participants gathered at Spirit Square by Glen Pine Pavilion. Sessions run rain or shine, and admission is free. Participants are asked to bring mats to sit on.

Score Card

Coquitlam nears B.C. three-peat Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Repetition can be a labour of love, or just a labour. For the Coquitlam A’s junior baseball team, it’s all about the love. The local association has earned its powerhouse reputation on the Canadian junior 13-to-14 year-old circuit with two provincial banners and three national titles over the past three seasons. This year’s edition is one win away from adding to the former, with an eye on growing the latter. Coquitlam advanced to the B.C. Little League Junior championship final with a 7-4 victory over Whalley on Monday at the provincial championships in Langley. Sparked by stellar pitching and balanced hitting, the A’s built up a 2-0 lead, withstood a Whalley rally with the bases loaded in the seventh for the win and a berth into the B.C. double-knockout final. “We played as a team,” said manager Tyler Olinyk of the clutch win. “We told the boys that they had to come together as a team and that you can’t win as individuals… They really picked each other up.” Starting pitcher Ben McCarthy went three innings and gave up two runs, while Cam Williams, the lone returning member from last year’s World Series squad, tossed three and a third in relief. In the seventh with Whalley getting two runners aboard and one out, Brandon Jeon stepped onto the mound and proceeded to walk the first two batters he faced to make it 7-4. He then closed it out with a game-ending double play. Coquitlam will now watch tonight’s semifinal showdown, to see who they’ll face. The final is slated for 7 p.m. Thursday at Langley’s City Park (at 207th Street and 48th Avenue). Undefeated in the tourney, the A’s will have two chances to win the title, with a second game slated for Friday, 7 p.m. if necessary. Coquitlam rocked Cypress Park 13-6 to kick off the tournament. Williams was kept to two innings and 32 pitches to maintain his eligibility for the team’s second game. He finished with three strikeouts, a walk, four hits and an earned run. The Coquitlam bats did their job over the first two innings, building up an 8-1 lead that reliever Brian Lee came in to protect. Leading the offence were Williams, who went 3-for-3 at the plate, and Adam Rota, who posted two hits and scored three runs. Jordan Gahan drove in three runs.

OUTSIDE PRESSURE: The Coquitlam Adanacs head into this weekend’s B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League semifinals not as defending champions but as determined favourites. The defence, which includes Kevin Neufeld, at right during a league game last month in Delta, will aim to make scoring difficult for the underdog Victoria Shamrocks.

Junior Adanacs ready for real season John Kurucz

jkurucz@thenownews.com The opponent has been decided and the lines have been drawn. And while they take their bestof-five semifinal series against the Victoria Shamrocks with ultimate seriousness, in the whole scheme of things the Coquitlam junior Adanacs prefer not to shape their battle plans around one particular rival. To defend their B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League playoff crown — and hopefully their Minto Cup national title, too — it’s going to come down to the internal force of playing to their potential. “We’ll take all comers, we didn’t care really,” said Coquitlam general manager Ken Wood of whom would be their first round opponent. “We respect Victoria and as the general manager I’m always worried because [Victoria] will be stoked to play us.”

Any series against Island opponents always present its own special challenge, due to the fact that games must be played on Saturday and Sunday. Because of floor availability, the Adanacs waived the right to host Game 1 to prevent the series from possibly carrying over to three weekends. The series kicks off Saturday in Victoria, with Game 2 slated for Sunday, 5 p.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre. Game 3 goes next July 30 in Coquitlam. The Shamrocks swept Nanaimo 2-0 in the opening round to win the opportunity to upset the Adanacs. With a perfect 21-0 record, the defending Minto Cup champs enjoyed the better part of a two-week layoff musing on who could be their second round dance partners. In the end, it only matters that they come to play, period, said Matt Dinsdale. “The competition doesn’t matter. We can only change how we play,

change how we prepare.” For the record, Coquitlam outscored Victoria 48-14 over three regular season encounters. Adanacs head coach Curt Malawsky had his squad busy during the layoff, focusing on the details and routines that can make all the difference. “Now it’s details, details, details — we’ve got to tweak our systems,” Malawsky told the NOW. “There’s some things that we need to do differently. Teams have been watching what we’re doing, so we have to change some things up. Right now is an exciting part of the year for us as coaches because we’re going to actually be able to sink our teeth into the idiosyncrasies of the game.” The Adanacs will be without 2010 Minto MVP Robert Church, sidelined with a knee injury, but are otherwise healthy. Victoria, meanwhile, will have Karsen Leung in uniform — the squad’s top sniper who missed two of

the teams’ previous encounters. Wood also notes that both Island netminders are capable of flipping momentum on its head. “Cory Mayzes and Cody Hagedorn are very good goalies that should they get hot could turn a game or two around,” he noted. “For me, the upperhand goes to whoever wins that first game.” For Coquitlam captain Michael Krgovich, the playoffs signal the start of something big that hopefully will play in the Adanacs’ favour. “There are times where you will feel stressed about it, but it’s meant to be enjoyed. There’s no better feeling than playing in those games. “Anyone can play in a blowout, but it’s when the game is on the line and there’s thousands of people there that it’s really something special that you want to be a part of. You just enjoy the ride and hope it takes you to the Minto Cup.” — with a file from Dan Olson

Seventh straight loss puts A’s playoffs hopes in doubt

The margin of error isn’t large, but the losses are adding up. And now the margin of error for their playoff hopes is virtually nil. The Coquitlam Adanacs suffered their 10th defeat of the season Saturday and seventh in a row, falling 13-11 to the Maple Ridge Burrards in Western Lacrosse Association action. While it was another defeat in what is shaping up to be a hard-luck season, Coquitlam displayed enough spunk at times to put a positive result in reach. Three straight goals by the Burrards’ Randy Daly in the first period gave the visitors an early lead. Coquitlam fired back and tied it on Dane Dobbie’s first of three to kick off the second frame. The two teams then traded the lead before Maple Ridge rattled off four quick goals to take a 9-6 advantage. Again, the home team put on a valiant charge and

got a pair of goals from Kevin Olson and a single by Daryl Veltman to make it 9-9 with 9:29 left in the game. But the run couldn’t last, as the Burrards responded with three quick goals, getting markers from local products Peter Tellis and Derek Lowe, with two, to restore the three-goal lead. Two late tallies by Dobbie made it a one-goal game with four minutes left, but the visitors did a good job of protecting the lead. Maple Ridge was led by ex-junior Adanac Riley Loewen’s three goals and three assists, and PoCo product Curtis Dickson’s five-point night. “It’s just the little things, there isn’t one thing that caused it,” said sniper Cory Conway of the loss. “To lose seven in a row with the lineup we have, it’s shocking. I’m sure there are a lot of people around the league who are wondering what’s happening.”

Coquitlam sits last overall in the WLA with a 4-10 record, six points out of the fourth and final playoff spot. They haven’t won since upsetting Victoria 8-5 more than a month ago in the provincial capital. With four games left and three teams to pass, the team’s fate depends upon turning the ship around now. “They are all crucial games now... Realistically we have to win them all with the predicament we put ourselves in,” noted Adanacs general manager Les Wingrove. “It’s not going to be easy.” Their first opportunity comes tomorrow at Queen’s Park against first-place New Westminster, who are coming off just their third loss of the season. “That’s just going to make them uglier,” Wingrove noted. Coquitlam return home to host Nanaimo 7 p.m. on Saturday at the Poirier Sports Centre.

For one week in October size matters.

Threat secure B.C. soccer gold

The Coquitlam Metro-Ford under-15 girls Threat entered the 2010-11 season with lofty expectations. A league title, a Coastal Cup and then the capper, a provincial crown — those were all realistic goals in coach Andy Dodge’s eyes. Although they didn’t get the trifecta, the Threat got the big one when they edged Coastal Cup champion West Vancouver 1-0 in a shootout for the Provincial B Cup title. “The girls played some beautiful football during the tournament,” noted Dodge of the 100 Mile House-hosted event. “We scored 10 goals off set plays, it was something we worked hard on.” Just as the final score demonstrates, it didn’t come easy for the Coquitlam crew. They had the better chances in regulation, missing a penalty kick and firing another shot off the crossbar. But neither team was able to score, forcing the championship to kicks where the Threat capitalized on their first four shots. West Van missed its second shot and its fifth

to clinch the victory for Coquitlam. A couple of months ago it was West Van on the winning side, overtaking the Threat on the last week of league action to take first place, then eked out a 2-0 win in the Coastal Cup final. A year ago Coquitlam also advanced to the Coastal Cup final only to lose in a shootout. At the B.C.’s, Coquitlam opened with an 8-0 win over the host squad, then rallied to tie fourtime champion Gordon Head 2-2, with Amanda Ramsden heading home the equalizer. That dramatic comeback sparked the team to a 7-2 victory over Kootenay representative, a game that required a five-goal decision to earn them a spot in the final. The team consists of Veronica Aquiar, Ivana Baker, Paige Benning, Christina Caan, Jamie Culpo, Martina Ferrato, Kassia Hayek, Kimberley Hoskins, Holly Joe, Michelle Maljevac, Simrin Purhar, Pam Scowby, Amanda Ramsden, Isabelle Ryan, Nicole Shanks, Triana Syskakis and Kayla Zaurrini.

Bantam Adanacs a lock in provincial final

Lisa King/NOW

ARM IN ARM: A Coquitlam Metro-Ford player sticks close to his Penticton rival in the Pacific Coast Reserve Men’s league battle on Sunday. Coquitlam won 7-1, with two goals from Jules Chopin, to clinch first place.

Don’t judge a team by its first game. That was a major lesson served at the B.C. Bantam A1 Lacrosse championships last week in Victoria, after the Coquitlam Adanacs rolled to a provincial title. Yes, the same Adanacs that launched the four-day tourney with a 6-3 setback to host West Shore. It came after an arduous ferry ride and played right into the host’s hands. But Coquitlam got it back, and then some. After that blip, the team

went undefeated, closing up with a 5-1 win over Port Coquitlam in the final. Backstopped by MVP Christian Del Bianco, the Adanacs did a stellar job of shutting down the opposition. In the final, Christian Basso gave Coquitlam the lead 27 seconds in. Drew Leonard, Reid Bowering and Dennon Armstrong made it 4-0 before PoCo replied. Dakota Coyle completed the offence. “Our team was very disciplined and kept to the game plan the whole tournament,”

noted assistant coach Scott Stroup. The Adanacs are Dennon Armstrong, Christian Basso, Christopher Bosa, Reid Bowering, Dylan Chand, Dakota Coyle, Christian Del Bianco, Matthew Hermary, John Hofseth, Drew Leonard, Matthew McIlwrick, Angelo Pontellini, Colin Roby, Harlowe Steele, Brody Stroup, Ethan Ticehurst, Max Vanstrien and Kristofer Ziomislik, head coach Pat Coyle and assistants Scott Stroup and Lance Hofseth.

SUDOKU Fun By The Numbers

Like puzzles? Then you'll love Sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your Sudoku savvy to the test!

SUDOKU

Fun By The Numbers

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
