Rolly Fox, father of Terry Fox, addresses the crowd at the Terry Fox Hometown Run in Port Coquitlam on Sunday. Following the death of his wife, Betty, Rolly has spent more time in the spotlight at fundraising events. Runs were also held over the weekend in Coquitlam, Port Moody and Anmore, as well as in communities across the country. In addition, some schools held their own runs to raise money for cancer research, including Pinetree Secondary in Coquitlam. See story, Page 14.

On Sunday, 770 communities across Canada tied up their runners, adorned their rollerblades or hopped on their bikes to support cancer research at the 31st annual Terry Fox run. Early indications show the participation and dollars raised were higher than last year, including in the TriCities, said Donna White, provincial director for the BC/Yukon division of the Terry Fox Foundation. “We are grateful to all of the organizers, volunteers and the people who donated to participants,” said White. “The momentum from the 30th anniversary last year has carried over into 2011. It is a Canadian fall tradition for all ages and backgrounds, and it is in the hearts of Canadians and people all around the world.” White said what really stood out from the run this year was the technology and how well it was embraced. She said by run day, there were  CONT. ON PAGE 6, see STUDENTS.

MP pushes to ban Ex-CFLer faces charges import of shark fins after PoCo shooting Eva Cohen editorial@thenownews.com Up to 75 million sharks are killed each year, with the majority used toward the shark fin trade, according to Wild Aid Canada. Fin Donnelly, MP for New Westminster-Coquitlam, and Fisheries and Oceans critic, is proposing legislation in Canada to stop the illegal

importation of shark fins to the country. “Top predators are important in terms of balancing the global marine ecosystem, and when I learned that shark deaths were up to 75 million and the bulk of those are by shark finning, I was shocked,” said Donnelly. “I started to investigate and talk to some conservation organizations to find out more about this. It’s already illegal to fin sharks in

Canada, but the problem lies outside of Canada and that the fins can still be imported.” Donnelly pointed to a recent report to the United Nations on the state of the world’s oceans that said the ecosystem is heading toward a sixth extinction period, and the only difference from the previous extinctions, he said, is humans are the cause of the

Shots fired near route of Terry Fox run Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com

The Terry Fox Hometown Run was detoured by police Sunday morning after gunshots were fired along the route. Just before 10:30 a.m. on Sept. 18, Coquitlam RCMP received several 911 calls related to a suspected break and enter in progress near the intersection of Coast Meridian Road and Coquitlam Avenue — right

along Port Coquitlam’s planned route for the Terry Fox Run. Premier Christy Clark was one of thousands of participants who took part in the local event. An officer controlling traffic in the area was confronted by a man holding what appeared to be a firearm. The officer arrested 27-year-old Port Coquitlam resident Adam Braidwood without incident and seized the firearm. According  CONTINUED ON PAGE 6, see GUNFIRE.

Naturalists upset over park plans Eva Cohen editorial@thenownews.com

L

ast week, Metro Vancouver presented a proposal to Coquitlam city council that outlined a plan to convert part of Colony Farm into commercial agricultural plots. On Monday, Elaine Golds spoke to council on behalf of the Burke Mountain Naturalists and presented several arguments as to why the group believes the plan would be negative both in the long and short term. City council appeared open to Golds’ points, and voted on a separate manner of business to urge Metro Vancouver “to undertake a thorough community consultation process to seek Coquitlam public input prior to finalizing the plan.” A primary concern of Golds, which was echoed by Coun. Mae Reid, is the cost. Phase One of the conversion plan would cost about $5 million, with the total cost at around $30 million. Initial funding would come from Metro Vancouver, but Golds is concerned much of the cost would end up coming out of the existing parks budget, which has been shrinking. “Since the trail closure at Colony Farm, since it was closed rather than repaired, park visitations have dropped tremendously from 384,000 in 2005 to only 255,000 in 2009,” said Golds. “It’s wrong not to be repairing the trail.” Mayor Richard Stewart agreed about the trail. He used it as an example when bringing up the issue of lobbying Metro Vancouver for local public consultation on the proposed changes.

pointed to SkyTrain service, or the lack thereof, as the largest transportation issue, followed by the Evergreen Line, congestion and local transportation or lack of it. “I don’t know what the transportation is going to be, and how are they going to get more buses here, and what that’s going to do to the transit we already have here,” Reid said. “We’ve just been told by Ipsos that’s a problem in the region, but if we’re not going to get increased transit how will that affect the plan?” Another issue presented by Golds is the feasibility of commercial farming in the park. “Colony Farm has a history of being a farm [highly supported by provincial government grants and free labour], but times have changed and the farming community is elsewhere in the Fraser Valley,” Golds explained. “Farmers need a farming community around them to thrive, and Colony Farm is now remote from other agriculture areas.” She suggested if providing “incubator farms” is an appropriate activity in regional parks, “then the best park would probably be Campbell Valley, which lies within an agricultural community.” She concluded by saying the best solution for how to utilize the agricultural soils at Colony Farm, without encroaching on the space set aside for animal habitat, lies in providing people with space in the park to grow food, “whether it be co-operative community gardens, allotment type gardens, gardens to grow food for the food bank, therapeutic gardens, you name it.”

deaths of the top predators. The bill will be presented in early November, and Donnelly said from now until then he is hoping to meet with as many individuals and groups as possible to get input and feedback on the issue. He said he and his advisors have met with the Toronto-Chinese business association in a preliminary meeting, and they have arranged to go back and talk to more members in Toronto on Sept. 30 for a further consultation. “One of their concerns was the local jurisdictions passing bans, which means laws would vary from municipality to municipality. A national ban would level the playing field,” he said. Donnelly said he is also interested in doing a round table in the Vancouver area with people from the Chinese business community. Coquitlam Chinese business associations were contacted but did not return calls on the subject by the time this article went to print. “If there are concerns about how this will affect a business or a store, I want to get feedback from owners,” Donnelly said. “What we have found, though, is that most people

MP Fin Donnelly are supporting this move, even within the Chinese community. Many young Chinese couples are making pledges to not serve shark fin soup at their wedding. “There is a trend away from serving it at weddings, at least on the West Coast.” There are two things Donnelly said can be done to lessen the effect that lack of shark fins will have on a business. First, there are local Canadian shark fisheries where other shark parts can be bought to get the same taste in the food products, and second, shark alternatives can be used for a similar soup or dish. There are a couple of events coming up in the Lower Mainland that Donnelly said will be pretty fun, and help spread awareness on the issue

of shark finning. An organization called SharkTruth (www. sharktruth.ca) will be holding a competition in Vancouver some time in October where Donnelly said high-profile judges from the local Chinese community will honour whoever creates the best alternative to shark fin soup. In addition, Donnelly said plans are in the works to have a showing of Shark Water, a documentary by filmmaker Rob Stewart, in which his “love for sharks prompts him to undertake a dangerous journey in an effort to save sharks from extinction.” The event will probably be in Port Moody, said Donnelly, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. “We would like to have Rob Stewart attend and say a few words on the film, so we are working on that,” said Donnelly. “It will for sure be in the riding, and we will have all the details hammered out soon.” The overall reaction to the proposed ban so far has been very positive, said Donnelly. “So far, people who have known about finning are horrified it’s still going on, and people who don’t know, if you give them a 30-second overview of stats and figures, are shocked and very supportive.”

to the Vancouver Sun, Braidwood is a former Edmonton Eskimos defensive end. Meanwhile, the officers who responded to the break-andenter call at a nearby home found that a number of shots had been fired inside the residence — although there was no indication that a break-in had occurred. Investigators found no damage outside the resi-

The circumstances surrounding the gunfire are under investigation. The incident occurred minutes before the Terry Fox Run participants entered the area.

Braidwood is scheduled to appear in Port Coquitlam provincial court tomorrow (Wednesday) to face charges related to possession and discharge of a firearm, as well as a breach of recognizance.

Opinion

Stay away from the tracks Re: “Coquitlam looks at ways to make cycling easier,” Wednesday, Sept. 14. With regard to council looking at ways and means of improving cycling around Coquitlam and Mayor Richard Stewart’s rant against the railways in both Coquitlam and New Westminster, it would seem that rather than focusing on the improvement of bike routes, the mayor turned the exerTo The cise into a political slag of the area’s major railways. The bottom line is this: railways are heavy industrial operations that were here long before Mayor Stewart and his bicycle. They are major players in the transportation of goods to and from various ports in the Lower Mainland, and we should be focusing on improving their operations to help get trucks off our already congested road network. This

will then facilitate the implementation of accessible bike lanes for the general public to use. The mayor and council must realize the liabilities and costs involved when dealing with a rail network. They do not just have a train passing by here and there. They also require regular track maintenance that can make for a hazardous environment if one is too close to the tracks. Editor They are also corridors for fibre optic cabling that must be accessible. They are not areas that the general public should be playing or commuting around. And lastly, they are federally regulated operations that do not operate at the whim of local municipalities. Get used to it, and stay away from the tracks. Andy Cassidy Coquitlam

Our View

Imagine a world without cancer

W

hat can possibly be said about cancer that hasn’t been said before? That it steals lives? That it makes no distinction between young and old, male and female? That it kills more Canadians each year than any other disease? We’ve heard those things enough times that, for some of us, we start to tune out when the latest fundraising campaign is gearing up. But consider the following: In 2011, cancer will kill about as many Canadians as the entire population of the capital city of B.C. According to Canadian Cancer Society statistics, about 75,000 deaths will occur nationally this year, just shy of Victoria’s last census count of about 78,000. Imagine an entire city, empty of people. It’s chilling. And since we’re on a geography theme, consider this second fact: there will be an estimated 177,800 new cases of cancer this year in Canada. There are things we can do individually when it comes to cancer: listen to health advice and follow a lifestyle that limits risk factors, like smoking. But that only accounts for a portion of cases — the rest occur in otherwise healthy people in the prime of their lives. Our best protection against cancer is to learn more about it, develop better treatments and maybe, just maybe, find a way to stop cancer all together someday. And that’s why events like last Sunday’s annual Terry Fox runs in the Tri-Cities are so important. Only by working together can we move towards a future where we can save those 75,000 lives per year. There are many demands on our donation dollars and, in this economy, sometimes not many dollars are left to give. But the potential impact that the Terry Fox Foundation has for all our lives is also massive. We can imagine an entire city lost to cancer. Can we imagine a world without cancer at all?

And this brings us to the impact that pandering to Quebec may have on the B.C. wing of the party. NDP leader Adrian Dix has only said he supports giving B.C. more seats in the House of Commons, but he has not — at least at the time of this writing — explained whether he also favours retaining Quebec’s current strength in the House. If the federal NDP becomes painted as a Quebecfirst party, this will undoubtedly give the B.C. Liberals (and the B.C. Conservatives) a lot of ammunition with which to fire away at Dix and his colleagues. The impact of this situation would be felt most significantly outside of Metro Vancouver. Dix has made winning seats in the Interior — places like Vernon, Penticton, the Cariboo and the south Okanagan — a priority for him in the next election. But those areas are also former strongholds of the old Reform Party, which had at its philosophical core a deep animosity towards Quebec. I suspect many people who voted for that party — which put up some impressive landslide wins in elections — felt the same way. A number of political observers — including myself — said on the recent federal election night a few months back that the NDP should be careful what it wished for when it came to winning electoral success in Quebec. And now the B.C. NDP may be about to find out how true that prediction was. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Parents deserve special treatment Re: “Pregnancy is a condition, not a disability,” letter to the editor, Wednesday, Sept. 7. The letter writer complains about parking set aside for new and expectant moms. I, for one, thank all the stores that offer these spots to young families, and will go out of my way To The Editor to shop there more often because of this. As a mom of two young children, I park in those spaces often and welcome them. They have popped up all over the city now, and I think it is a real breath of fresh air. They have been a saviour to us in rain, in times of being loaded down with groceries while handling two screaming toddlers, and also with safety. I feel quite vulnerable in a far corner of a dark parking lot with two little ones in tow, and being able to park close to the lit entrance gives me a sense of security. Shopping carts are always closer to these spots as well, so it makes for easier loading and unloading of groceries and screaming offspring. My young family visited Uruguay in South America last year, and I was blown away by the courtesy shown to families with young children. When you land in the airport, the signage directs families with children to the front of the line when you go through customs. Public transit has parent seating set aside in the front, and the bus drivers refuse to leave the bus stop if a pregnant woman or parent with a young child isn’t given a seat elsewhere on the bus, should the family seating be taken

Corralling small children and strollers in a parking lot isn’t easy, parents say. by another family with children. There is parent parking everywhere, and parent-only check stands at grocery stores. Even in the busy lineups in delis, passport offices, banks or bakeries, expectant moms or parents with young children are ushered to the front of the queue. It has nothing to do with thinking that being pregnant is a disability, but is out of respect and consideration. The culture sees this stage of life as sacred and there is an overlying sense of respect. People care. The opinion that the writer stated: “You decided to expand your little family … Suck it up and walk,” is very sad. I encourage all stores to continue with this

policy because it builds a strong sense of community and support. There is nothing wrong with making a young family’s life a bit easier. While I’m at it, thanks to all the facilities that have been providing family washrooms that are big enough to enter with a loaded shopping cart or stroller, with locks that are high enough so that my escape-artist toddler doesn’t run out at inopportune times. This is another lifesaver for us. Keep up the good work. Claudia G. Garcia Port Coquitlam

Engineer adds to debate The letter by Sandra MacKenzie on the

inappropriate use of specially designated parking spaces deserves clarification. The late British architect Selwyn Goldsmith, in his book Universal Design, identified an eight-level pyramid of increasing mobility impairment. People walking with youngsters and people with infants in strollers were placed at levels 3 and 4, respectively, on his pyramidal scale. Merchants provide more spacious, designated parking stalls for people with infants in strollers close to mall and store entrances in recognition of this mobility impairment. Also, small children and infants in strollers are a safety hazard in mall parking lots. They may dart from between cars. Sightlines are often obstructed. Backing vehicles may collide with strollers. Designated parking stalls for people with infants and children located near mall and store entrances improve safety. Ms. MacKenzie and all courteous citizens should respect these specially designated parking spaces. Derek Wilson P. Eng. (retired) Port Moody

We need to help each other As an expectant mother who is seven months pregnant, I fully support having special parking. Expectant mothers get tired, swollen and nauseous. It can be a challenge to work, drive, shop and often take care of your other kids. Of course, I see the need for seniors to have special parking as well. If we combine the two, it would be the perfect situation. We all need to work together to help each other. R. Steele Coquitlam

SHARE Family & Community Services is receiving recognition for its ongoing work in the addictions field. The Association of Addictions Specialists and Allied Professionals of B.C. (ASAP BC) has selected SHARE’s youth and adult addictions program as this year’s recipient of its award of excellence in addictions. ASAP BC president Chris Kitteringham said the award is designed to celebrate individuals and programs that have made major contributions to B.C.’s addiction field through service, research and advocacy. “With SHARE, since their inception, the thing that has impressed us the most is the willingness of the organization to be creative and really responsive to community needs,” Kitteringham said. “Given the myriad of groups and individual counseling that they provide — plus their youth-focused, school-based prevention and posse programs — they are a shining example of what I think every addiction service should look like across the province.” Times have been tough in the addictions field over the past decade, she added. “We’re not sure how they’ve done it, but SHARE has somehow managed to continue to stand on guard for addiction service as a unique discipline,” she said. While SHARE is well known for its addictions services, the non-profit is lauded in other professional circles as well. “Not only from our perspective as an association, but SHARE is also thought of really highly amongst other professionals in the Fraser region,” Kitteringham said. “They’re seen as solid members of the community and really great team players.” ASAP BC will present the award at its AGM on Oct. 24.

t was a day as rich as its history. Relatives descended from across North America to meet at the roots of their family tree in Maillardville. Grandchildren and great-grandchildren of former mayor of Coquitlam George Hector Proulx, who took office in 1923 for the year, flocked into the city to celebrate 100 years of familial connection. Yvonne Proulx said her grandfather George moved to Maillardville in 1911 from Quebec and set up a general shop on the corner of Laval Street and Brunette Avenue. This would also house the first post office for Maillardville. Currently, the French Quarters B&B stands near there, and it’s a block from Laval Square, as well as Maillardville’s community centre. “It was very emotional and very touching,” Yvonne Proulx said of the reunion. “We all feel that it’s our hometown.” Proulx, who lives in Delta, said family members spread out over the Lower Mainland and the United States as the years went on, but always kept Maillardville close to their heart. From Burnaby, Langley, Vancouver, Maple Ridge and Florida, the Proulxs have scattered across the continent from their modest beginnings. In an attempt to reunite in celebration of their family’s centennial birthday in Maillardville, Yvonne Proulx contacted her cousins and started setting the day up. Everyone was more than willing to make the trip and, in the end it went better than she could have imagined. “We had well over 100 people,” she said. “There were only two people who weren’t able to make it.” The family birthday, which took place earlier this summer, saw the Proulxs playing music, dancing, singing, cooking, performing skits and diving deeper into their history with a homemade video. “We had a skit, because apparently our aunts and uncles used to get together a lot when they were in their 20s and used to have fun parties,” Yvonne Proulx said. “They used to dress up in costumes. So we reenacted that.” Cousins who hadn’t seen each other for 40 years were reunited, bringing with them their own children and grandchildren. When it was all over, the family agreed to make this more than a oncein-a-lifetime event. Yvonne Proulx said they will be hosting another celebration every three years or so to keep in touch. And each time, they want it to be bigger and better than the one before.

Please find the gift within. MONTHLY. ANNUALLY. FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE & BEYOND.

Relatives of former Coquitlam mayor George Hector Proulx, who ran the city in 1923, met up in Maillardville recently for a family reunion. Proulx’s top hat, which was his trademark, is a family heirloom. In the above photo, Proulx is shown wearing his favourite hat with Fabiana Proulx. Submitted photos

Raise funds for literacy in India The Pratham BC Foundation will host its Walk for Words Walkathon and Laughter Club on Saturday, Sept. 24 at Mundy Park in Coquitlam. All proceeds from Saturday’s event will go to the foundation, a registered charity that aims to help eradicate child illiteracy in India, according to a press release. The walk begins at 11 a.m. in the southwest corner of Mundy Park, off Hillcrest Street. Registration starts at 10 a.m., and warmup exercises start at 10:45 a.m. A laughter club will be held at 12:30 p.m., and snacks will be provided after the walk. According to the foundation, 17 million children in India work simply because there is no alternative as they do not have access to good-quality education. Sixty million Indian children under the age of six live below the poverty line. The foundation says pledges of $15 could help a needy street child in India read, write and count in three months. All pledges will be collected at the park on the day of the walkathon. Tax deductible receipts will be issued for total pledges of $15 or more. For more information on the event, visit www.prathambc.org.

International Walk to School Week (iWalk) — the annual time for young people to discover how to get around on foot or on transit — returns from Oct. 3 to 7. During that time, children from kindergarten through Grade 12 will be able to ride free on transit (the free rides are available only to kindergarten and elementary school children and high school students with a valid GoCard). The free rides are part of an ongoing commitment TransLink has made in support of iWalk, according to a press release. “iWalk provides an opportunity for schools to educate kids about transportation options, both talking about them and experiencing them,” said TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis. “TransLink is excited to support it in any way we can.” In past years, schools have taken advantage of iWalk’s free transit to take students on field trips. But TransLink says because it provides more than 1.2 million trips each day, teachers are asked to consider the following tips: 1. It’s all about timing: go during “off-peak” hours — between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. 2. Do your homework: Use TransLink’s online resources, including the Trip Planner (http://tripplanning.translink. ca) or Google Transit. Planning the trip could be a fun class project in itself. 3. Do more homework: find out what other teachers in your school are planning trips at the same time and what route(s) they plan to take. 4. A class divided?: If your school is in an area with a relatively high frequency of bus service — or you plan to

Forget about boring lunches — these are meals your kids will love S cience says that wellnourished children learn better, behave better and feel better, so ensuring that snacks and lunches are nutritious is important. The B.C. government offers the following tips for parents looking to improve their child’s nutrition:

A Healthy Breakfast

Contact us at: 778.686.6972 www.vitalcorefitnesspilates.com 103-2764 Barnet Hwy Coquitlam

• A good breakfast is the best way to start the day. The energy received from a nutritious morning meal is what jump starts our body and brain and allows children to focus and learn easier in the classroom. • When planning breakfast for your children, try

to include three of the four food groups from Canada’s Food Guide: vegetables and fruit, grain products, milk and alternatives and meat and alternatives. • Here are some examples: an egg, a slice of whole grain toast and sliced tomatoes; whole grain toast with peanut butter and sliced banana; yogurt, granola and fruit; a breakfast smoothie made with yogurt or an alternative and your favourite frozen fruit.

Healthy Snacks

• Snacking throughout the day at set times will help to keep children’s blood sugar more stable and provide lasting energy for physical activity at break times and focused learning in the classroom. • When planning snacks for your children, try to use whole foods as much as possible, limiting the amount of pre-packaged, processed foods in your child’s lunches. • Pack healthy snacks that include at least two of the four Canada’s Food Guide food groups. • Here are some examples: yogurt with fresh fruit, sliced apple with cheese, banana bread with cream cheese, carrots with hummus or bean dip, hardboiled egg with sliced cucumber, small homemade bran muffin with orange wedges.

Healthy Lunches

• Lunch is a great time for children to connect with their

BACK TO SCHOOL

Promote literacy in the home

A

s students settle into another school year, here are some tips, courtesy of the Province of B.C., to help them have a successful year and get the most out of their study time:

WSBG18=player_profilepage. • Introduce your children to a variety of literary genres to see which they most enjoy. • Help your children get a library card and take weekly trips with them to the library.

Parents of Primary Students

Parents of Middle School Students

• Let your children see you read, and set aside time each day for family reading. • Ask your children to read to you while you prepare a meal. • Get your children excited about reading by taking turns reading pages or acting out characters. • Talk to your children about what they read. Ask them questions that require them to read between the lines and think about what they have just read. This will help improve their reading comprehension. For tips, check out this video: www. youtube.com/watch?v=9WqFP

• Set up a daily homework routine. Designate a homework area away from distractions like the television and Internet, and with adequate lighting and supplies. • When it is time for your children to do their homework, reinforce strong study habits by also doing yours: balance your chequebook, pay your bills or immerse yourself in a book. • Let your children read comic books in their spare time because comics can encourage positive reading habits and can play a role in improving literacy. • Help your children

identify difficult and easy homework tasks and get them to tackle the most difficult subjects first. • Make yourself available to answer questions and offer help, but do not do your children’s homework for them. • Ask your children questions and have them explain what they have just read or studied. • Encourage your children to write stories, poetry and songs. • Keep an assignment calendar on the fridge for quick reference of due dates, exams and how they fit with other activities.

Parents of Secondary Students

• Continue with an established homework routine. Make adjustments as needed, such as after-school or weekend time set aside for working on big projects. • Encourage your teenagers

to take 20 minutes each night to read over their notes from that day or rewrite them using colours to highlight important information so they retain it longer. • Have your children take regular breaks to help alleviate eye, neck and brain fatigue while studying. This will help them be more productive and retain more of what they read and study. • Encourage your teenagers to explore magazines or appropriate websites on subjects that interest them to keep them reading. Most local libraries carry selections of magazines on a variety of topics, including sports, science, mechanics and politics. • Keep an assignment calendar on the fridge for quick reference of due dates, exams and how they fit with other activities.

and choose your fillings: tuna salad — add celery for extra crunch; egg salad — add radish and green onions for extra crunch; chicken salad — add apples, celery and curry spice for a spin on the original; veggie — add hummus, avocado and/or cheese to make these sandwiches more filling. • Salads are a great way to shake things up. Try pasta salad (add cubes of cheese and/or leftover meat or alternatives with plenty of veggies, and marinate in dressing overnight for extra flavour) or taco salad (add lean ground beef, lettuce, tomato, grated cheese and salsa). For spinach salad, add a protein of some sort such as leftover salmon, nuts and/or seeds plus veggies. • Try Mexican wraps for a change — with grilled chicken, black bean spread, spiced rice and avocado in a whole wheat tortilla. • Leftovers that can be eaten cold include quiche, homemade pizza and lasagna. • Make a picnic lunch with hard-boiled eggs, sliced cheese, bean salad, veggies and dip. • Another option is homemade chili or hearty soups in a thermos, alongside a whole wheat bun. • Sending sliced veggies with your child’s lunch is a great idea, whether they eat them as a snack or alongside their meal. • Fruit makes a great lunchtime dessert. • Lunch is a great place to include 250 ml

of milk or a fortified milk alternative beverage, such as soy or almond milk. • Talk to your children about staying well hydrated and drinking water throughout the day. • When preparing snacks and lunches, plan ahead. Washing and chopping plenty of fruit and vegetables to store in the fridge is a great way to save time. Sprinkling lemon juice over cut fruit and vegetables will help to keep them from turning brown. Package foods separately to keep them fresher. This will help to keep veggies and fruit crispy, and crackers won’t get soggy. Packing lunches the night before can help make mornings less hectic. • For older children who have access to a microwave, dinner leftovers are an excellent lunch idea. When packing lunch for younger children, easy-to-eat foods work best. • Send your children to school with a refillable water bottle to keep them well-hydrated throughout the day. Tap water can easily be flavoured with sliced cucumber, lemon, lime or other fruit. • Keep hot items hot and cold items cold. Insulated lunch bags/boxes with frozen packs work great, as well as thermos containers for hot items. • Remember to regularly clean out your child’s lunch box to avoid the possibility of food contamination.

Tips to crush your workout excuses

Life is hectic. Nothing seems to work. Gym memberships are expensive. There is an endless list of reasons to skip a workout or never begin exercising in the first place. With excuses blurring the benefits, getting fit can be an even bigger challenge. TOPS Club, Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), the nonprofit weight loss support organization, provides tips to overcome justifications for avoiding physical activity. • “I’m too busy.” Make working out a priority and it will become routine. The best way to fit physical activity into your day is by setting a schedule and writing it on the calendar. If you don’t have time for an hour of cardio or weight training, take steps to ensure you move during the week — take the stairs, park at the back of the parking lot, do an abdominal workout during commercials. Ten-minute mini-exercises, such as a brisk walk during the lunch hour, are also useful. • “I feel self-conscious.” Exercise at home with fitness DVDs and resistance cables. Once you have gained confidence, go outside, join a gym

or take an exercise class. If you want to beat the crowds at the fitness centre, go mid-morning or late in the evening, when fewer people are around. • “I don’t like working out.” Perhaps running or weight lifting is too monotonous for you. Working out doesn’t have to be something that’s painful or boring. Today’s workout world offers a variety of options to stay fit — yoga, hiking, swimming, dancing, Pilates, recreational sports and more. Grab a friend and participate in a workout that you enjoy. • “I don’t know how.” Personal trainers help people tailor their exercises to their ability and the proper intensity level. Whether you want to learn how to cycle indoors, dance or play a sport, fitness classes with instructors can teach new movements and correct form. The staff at most gyms should be well-versed in their facility’s equipment. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. • “I can’t afford a gym membership.” Although fitness centres have a lot to offer, gym fees can be expensive. Perhaps your community’s local recreation department offers low-cost classes you

Strata survey open

The provincial government is seeking public input through an online discussion paper and survey that introduces a new approach to resolving strata property disputes. The approach would make dispute resolution services available to any strata owner in B.C. by offering an access-

ible, efficient and lower-cost alternative to the court system and the current arbitration model. The survey is available until Oct. 31 at 4:30 p.m. and can be accessed at: www. bcstrata2011.malatest.net. For more information, visit http:// housing.gov.bc.ca/strata.

can participate in. Walking or running outdoors are free, effective activities. You may even want to consider rollerblading. Fancy equipment isn’t necessary to get in shape — it’s more important to stay active on a regular basis. • “I can’t get motivated.” Make a list of reasons to workout — to get healthy, boost energy, look better in your clothes, etc. Post the list in a place you look at every day to remind yourself of your workout ambitions. Friends are also a great place to seek motivation. At TOPS, weekly chapter meetings give members the chance to cheer for and encourage one another in their weightloss efforts. • “I don’t see any results.” It’s important to understand that exercise may not produce immediate physical changes. Remember your long-term goals and think about how working out makes you feel. Writing down the little improvements you see on a daily basis can be helpful. Visitors can attend their first TOPS meeting free of charge. To find a local chapter, view www.tops.org or call (800) 932-8677.

Score Card

Rough loss to Vees sets stage for new season

Come Friday, what little history the Coquitlam Express and Penticton Vees share will become mere fodder for the launch of a new B.C. Hockey League season. But what fodder. Coquitlam launches the 50th BCHL season Friday (7 p.m.) at the Poirier Sports Centre against the same Vees — one of the topranked junior A teams in Canada. The teams wrapped up a home-and-home exhibition slate on Saturday in the Okanagan, where the Interior powerhouse completed the sweep with a 9-6 victory. Although the number of goals allowed proved a difficult pill to swallow, Express head coach Jon Calvano was more choked about what he said was a dangerous hit. Coquitlam lost the services of winger Cody Michelle, 19, after he was hit by Penticton’s Logan Johnston in the third period. The incident rattled the coach to the extent that he refused to talk about it, only noting that Johnston would serve a short suspension while Michelle could miss a large part of the season with a broken jaw. It’s a significant loss, Calvano admitted, as Michelle had enjoyed a solid training camp and exhibition run. “Cody’s been fantastic at camp. We had been looking forward to seeing him on the ice when we got him (from Salmon Arm),” he noted. Johnston, who has accumulated nearly 300 penalty minutes over the past three seasons, was issued a match penalty on the play, while Dana Tenenbaum drew a fighting major after going to Michelle’s defence. A match penalty draws an automatic three-game suspension. The BCHL website listed Johnston Tuesday as being suspended indefinitely. Regarding the score, Calvano said it may not have pleased either coach but it did offer plenty for the fans. “If you like offence you saw some great performances,” the Express coach said. “It wasn’t a very good night defensively for either team.” Coquitlam fell behind 3-0 early but managed to pull within a goal before the Vees went on a scoring spree.  CONT.

Senior Ravens tread heavily on Hyacks Stories by Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com The Terry Fox Ravens may be young, but they are still tough. The Ravens improved to 2-0 in senior AAA high school football action with a resounding 33-6 exhibition win over the New Westminster Hyacks Friday at Town Centre Park. In their first possession, the Ravens ran the ball 11 straight times for 66 yards, capped by Marko Bevanda’s two-yard touchdown play. In the second half, Mark Casuga dashed in from eight yards out for the second major of the night. Jake Nylund added another rushing major, a three-yard push, to make it 20-0 at the half. Nylund made it 26-0 with a fouryard run to start the third quarter.

New West got on the board after recovering a fumble on the Ravens’ one-yard line. But on the next play, kick returner Jack Brady restored the large margin with an 82-yard return for the final major of the game. Fox sacked the Hyack pivots seven times on the night, with Mark Le Noble and Tyrel Ratich racking up two apiece. Bevanda and Ratich led the way with seven solo tackles each. “We took a positive step forward this week,” co-coach Tom Kudaba said in a press release. “The coaches are starting to make decisions about who the go-to guys are going to be. “I’m happy with how the defence played for the majority of the game. I’m also happy with the team spirit that is starting to build.” On offence, Nylund finished with 95 yards on 12 carries, while Jean

Koorsten carried the ball five times, gaining 71 yards. Quarterback Trevor Casey was a perfect three-for-three on pass attempts, accounting for 58 yards in the air. Pulling down the longest reception was Brandon McKewan, with a 30-yard catch. Terry Fox’s next test comes Friday, 7 p.m. when Kelowna visits Percy Perry Stadium. The Centennial Centaurs, meanwhile, laboured without a handful of injured starters against Eastside Catholic of Sammamish, Wash. on Friday in a 33-0 exhibition loss. The Cents get their first taste of Canadian competition on Saturday, 1 p.m., when Double-A Ballenas visits Percy Perry Stadium. In junior football action, Terry Fox delivered a polished 27-6 decision over New Westminster. It began when the Ravens recov-

ered their own opening kickoff, leading three plays later to Nick Agnoletto’s TD catch from quarterback Conner McKee. On the next series, Agnoletto intercepted a Hyack pass that resulted in running back Sam DeGroot’s 32-yard rushing major, making it 13-0. Up 13-6 at the half, Fox extended its lead when McKee hit Jake Bye with a 47-yard TD pass, followed by Agnoletto’s 60-yard punt return. DeGroot finished with 75 yards on nine carries, while McKee picked up 56 yards on the run, while completing seven of 12 pass attempts for 131 yards. On defence, Michael West racked up 10 tackles and two QB sacks, with Isaiah Stevens collecting five tackles. The junior Ravens next test comes Friday, 3:30 p.m. against Kelowna at Percy Perry Stadium.

PICKING UP SPEED: The Lightning Speed Skating Club hosted a camp late August at the Port Coquitlam Recreation Centre with B.C. short track skating coach Debby Fisher, above, and former national long track team member Brock Miron. The camp drew 26 skaters from around the Lower Mainland.

Defence, discipline to be addressed before Friday’s Express home opener  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 27

Alex Petan posted a hat trick in the loss, while defenceman Josh Finkelstein registered a pair of goals. Netting singles were Mitchell Fyffe and Alexander Kerfoot. Goaltender Khalid Devji faced 30 shots but had his hands full with the high-flying Vees. Their roster included NHL draft picks Steve Fogarty, Mario Luca and Mike Reilly. “(Khalid) faced 30 shots but as a No. 1 goal-

tender he wants to have the ball and run with it. I think there were things he’d like to have back, but there are areas for improvement all around.” And one of those areas will be the focus this week in preparation for the season opener. One of the places the club set out to improve during the offseason was in having a more physical presence and not be susceptible to opposing thugs. Being physical and winning games requires discipline, and Calvano said the club is in it to beat the likes of Penticton and Powell

River on the scoresheet. “We know special teams are important,” Calvano said. “Penticton got two of their first three goals off the powerplay, so our penalty killing has to be better or we can’t take penalties.” Prior to Michelle’s injury, the roster of 21 players had been virtually set. Now, management is weighing who will slot in to replace the wellrounded winger, who joins Port Moody native

Mitch Deacon on the injured reserve list. PUCK MARKS: At Friday’s home opening tailgate party (which runs 5 to 7 p.m.) in the Poirier parking lot, children who bring non-perishable food items for the SHARE food bank will receive a yo-yo toy from Scotiabank. Coquitlam follows up Friday’s season opener with a trip to Alberni Valley to play the Bulldogs on Saturday.

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!
