Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart — and other TriCities mayors — is preparing for a vote that could affect Evergreen funding.

Transit funding vote on Friday

Lower Mainland mayors are preparing to vote Friday on TransLink’s supplemental plan that identifies funding sources for transit projects including the Evergreen Line. Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said the supplemental plan involves more than just the two-cent-per-litre gas tax. “We’re going to try to drive improvements in the transit system so that we can get cars off the road,” Stewart said. “Part of that is so that the people who need their cars will be able to move more freely on the road system. All around, I think it’s a real benefit to consumers, to residents of the Tri-Cities and all across the region.” If the mayors support the plan, Stewart said the transportation minister will introduce legislation to enable it to go forward. “We’ve finally identified how we would pay for [the Evergreen Line]. That by itself will actually get the ball rolling,” he said.

Ron Little wants Coquitlam to hold a referendum on whether the Boulevard Casino should be allowed to build a hotel on United Boulevard.

Hotel owner asks for referendum Co-owner of Best Western in Coquitlam says casino has unfair advantage Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com A local hotel owner will try his luck at getting the city to hold a referendum regarding possible expansions at Boulevard Casino. Coquitlam city council is considering a zoning amendment that would allow a hotel and conference facilities to be built at the casino on United Boulevard. First reading passed unanimously, and a public hearing is scheduled for Oct. 24. Ron Little, one of the owners of the Best Western Plus Coquitlam Inn Convention Centre, would rather see public opinions gathered through a referendum. He hopes Coquitlam residents will write to council to support a referendum on the issue. “There’s never been a referendum on the casino,”

Little said. “If you can go from zero to a full Las Vegas-style casino hotel without public input other than a public hearing, that’s really something.” The casino hotel could also represent unfair competition, Little said, since other hotels in the area can’t subsidize their rate structures with casino income. “The unfairness that they would be creating by approving this application would be a precedent for the city because we don’t have any other casino … There’s no need for a hotel for the casino,” Little said, adding that the city needs to be careful that it’s not in a conflict of interest. “They’re targeting one profit area, and that’s our commercial business, our corporate travellers. That’s the business they’re after. That has nothing to do with the casino.” As for a new convention centre, Little said the city could choose a better location.

“Anybody that really needs a big convention centre is going to go downtown to the new one, so you’re looking at small- to medium-sized meetings out here,” he said. “Wouldn’t the city centre be a better place for a convention centre than out on the garbage dump area?” Instead of more hotels, Little added, Coquitlam needs attractions to draw tourists. “What the city needs is a tourist destination. And frankly because there’s no need here for casino hotel rooms, I think the casino should bring with them, with this application, a tourist destination,” Little said, adding that a wax museum could draw many visitors. “Whatever new jobs are provided out there, they’d be lost in the other hotels because there’s more supply than demand right now. So where’s all this  CONTINUED ON PAGE 3, see MORE HOTEL SPACE NEEDED.

Teachers celebrate worldwide day Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com Tri-Cities teachers are celebrating World Teachers’ Day today (Wednesday), along with professionals in more than 100 countries. This year’s theme is Teachers for Gender Equality, which is a topic often tackled in School District 43. Chris King, Coquitlam Teachers’ Association (CTA) first vice-president, explained the subject’s significance at a recent school board meeting.

“What does this mean for teachers in Coquitlam?” King asked. “It needs to be recognized that Coquitlam teachers have taken leadership roles in the fight for gender equality within their profession and the greater community as well.” Local teachers were part of a provincial group that formed the B.C. Teachers’ Federation’s status of women committee many years ago, King said. “This group flourishes today within the federation, supporting their own objectives as well as community

groups across the province in their efforts to ensure women’s rights and gender equality for all,” he said. Tri-Cities teachers were also at the forefront of diversity issues. “It was the Coquitlam teachers who expanded the definition of gender and led the provincial campaign to support the rights of gay and lesbian students — and the creation of policy and curriculum to heighten the awareness of all students, no matter their sexual persuasion,” King said. “It was because of the work of Murray Corren and the CTA that the

school board at that time was one of [the first], if not the first, in the province to put policy into place — rules to protect the rights of gay and lesbian students.” Local teachers also took the lead in approaching gender equality education as a social justice issue, he added. “The CTA thanks the board for their continuous support of all the work teachers have done and continue to do in their classrooms, schools and communities to ensure the safety of all students and gender equality in all areas of our lives.”

demand going to come from? One of the things you have to realize is that there is 365 days in the year that you need to fill the rooms — not just on weekends or special events.” Mayor Richard Stewart, however, said the city’s tourism strategy requires more hotel space for the TriCities. “I personally agree that we need to find some tourism opportunities in Coquitlam. For example, at [Monday’s] council meeting, we introduced the new sports tourism strategy aimed exactly at that,” Stewart said Tuesday. “It’s aimed at all-season tourist opportunities to fill up our hotels outside of the summer months and also to make sure that our restaurants benefit, our local service sector benefits and our local sporting groups benefit from the facilitating of inbound sports tournaments.” As far as a referendum is concerned, Stewart said the issue would have needed to pass through council months ago to be included on November’s ballot. “The requirements are quite strict

always sounds like a good idea, but unfortunately there’s limits to what

we are allowed to do under the legislation.” Council will remain open-minded about the issue throughout the process, Stewart added. “I’ve been very vocal that I do want to see us have some hotel space, but if some issues get raised at the public hearing that are things that we should be dealing with, I will be pursuing having us address them before we approve the project,” Stewart said. “The majority of council members are open-minded and pragmatic and are trying to find solutions that are good for our community … I would like to hear the issues that Mr. Little brings, and others, both for and against. Let’s see how they can help council make its decisions and perhaps even make the project a better project.” Little said he plans to speak up on the issue at the upcoming public hearing, and he hopes others will too. “It’s just darned unfair to the rest of the hotels who have already got their investments and their staff that will obviously be affected by a new hotel,” he said. twitter.com/jennifermcfee

Coquitlam changes animal control bylaws John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Coquitlam council revamped its animal control bylaws Monday to include an updated middle-ground classification for dogs while offering a pair of potentially life-saving tools for cats. The first three readings of the city’s animal care, control and enforcement bylaw passed unanimously and include a new provision for a third classification for dogs known as “aggressive dog.” Currently, the city only has two designations: dogs or vicious dogs. “It was a bit of a binary classification as

either a dog or a vicious dog and we were finding that with some people, their dogs would have occasional aggressive outbursts and for public safety reasons, we moved the dog directly into the vicious dog category,” city solicitor Heather Bradfield said in an interview Tuesday. “But that imports a whole host of obligations on people, some of which might not be essential given the circumstances surrounding the incident.” The wording of Monday’s proposed bylaw classifies aggressive dogs as “those which have displayed aggressive behaviour while in public, and those dogs which have caused a minor injury to a person or another animal.” Owners of aggressive dogs will be required to keep their dogs on a shorter leash, and those

Theft suspects sought Coquitlam RCMP are searching for two men who allegedly stole an 18-yearold’s phone in front of a McDonald’s in Coquitlam. On Sept. 10 at about 4 a.m., the teen went to McDonald’s on North Road near Austin Avenue, listening to music on his black iPhone 4. As he approached the entrance, two men allegedly walked up to him. According to police, one of the suspects said, “Let me use your phone” and grabbed the phone out of the teen’s hand. Both suspects left the scene and headed west with the phone towards Burnaby.

dogs will not be allowed into the city’s off-leash areas. Vicious dogs, on the other hand, will be defined as “those dogs which have caused serious injuries to people or other animals, or caused minor injuries to people or animals on more than one occasion.” Owners of vicious dogs will have the same restrictions placed upon them as those owning aggressive dogs, but will also be required to muzzle their dogs while in public places, post warning signs on their property, and keep the dogs confined when left unattended. Monday’s bylaw changes also include plans for residents to be able to register their cats with the city, or pay $10 to have an identification microchip placed in the feline.

As part of those plans, the city will offer free registration for cats, or the option of paying $10 for an identifying microchip. Bi-monthly microchipping clinics, digital lost photo templates and other photos of the lost pets will also be offered. The bylaw changes are driven largely by city animal shelter statistics that suggest that 89 per cent of lost dogs are re-united with their owners, while only 10 per cent of lost cats make it home. “It’s a value-added service to our community to really improve the chances that the cat will return and it is totally voluntary,” Bradfield said. “We are interested in gauging the community and seeing how it goes for the first year or so and we’ll go from there.”

Clay to run for mayor Stories by Jennifer McFee jmcfee@thenownews.com There’s now another contender in Port Moody’s mayoral race. Mike Clay confirmed Thursday he will run for mayor in November’s election.

My past experience as a city councillor is a valuable asset and I will, if elected, continue to make decisions which are in the best interest

Smart meters come with medical concerns for some When I first learned of Smart Meters in 2009, I called BC Hydro to let them know that the radiation would be deleterious to my medical condition. I was told that BC Hydro was aware that some people are sensitive to radio frequency radiation and engineers were working on options to help. In 2010, I was again assured that BC To The Hydro was committed to accommodating those individuals known to be affected by this type of radiation, and that if engineers could find a way for me to keep my analogue meter, they would. Forward to 2011 and a 180-degree shift in policy.

BC Hydro is no longer willing to recognize even the word of my medical doctor that I must avoid radio frequency radiation. I have gone from reassuring promises to wondering whether I will have my electricity cut off because of my medical restrictions. I am very grateful to the municipal Editor delegates at the UBCM who voted for a province-wide moratorium on the smart meter program until a safe alternative is available. A. Churchill Surrey

Our View

Throne Speech is just a prelude

F

amilies will have their day. But not right away. In Monday’s Throne Speech at the opening of the fourth session of British Columbia’s 39th Parliament, Premier Christy Clark announced that, at long last, British Columbians will have a holiday to help them through the dreary days of February. A new statutory “Family Day” holiday will be celebrated on the third Monday of every February, starting in 2013. Clark noted that the time lag will allow employers to adjust work schedules to the new holiday. We suspect that, somewhere in the back of her mind, she’s also figuring that it might just warm up a few cold electoral shoulders just in time for the election that she has already decreed will take place later that spring. All in all, there’s not much unexpected to be found in the Throne Speech. Teachers across the province, who are currently embroiled in unpromising contract negotiations, will surely be eager to see the government’s plans for legislation to “modernize” both the education system (to ensure that teachers have the “skills and support” they need to provide school children with what they need for a prosperous future) and the BC College of Teachers. Promises of improvements to the Family Law Act are welcome, as are proposals to free up court time by streamlining traffic-fine dispute mechanisms and to work on antibullying polices in schools. Also welcome is a commitment to find ways to help the most vulnerable members of our society. And the promise to host a summit on social innovation is at least intriguing. But like all Throne Speeches, it’s not what’s said on opening day that counts — it’s really all about what is accomplished during all the ordinary days of legislative haggling that follow.

Glen Clark when he was both a cabinet minister and premier, but “chief architect?” I don’t think so. Nevertheless, as the B.C. Liberals try to re-brand themselves as the party of cheerful Christy, it will also try to brand her chief opponent as some kind of menacing economic incompetent. But will this work? As I write this column, there has not been a public opinion poll in several months. But my instincts tell me the governing party is in serious trouble and may have even slipped behind the New Democrats. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins has been receiving a considerable amount of media attention, and this has likely pushed a significant number of B.C. Liberals into his camp. So can “Christy” bring them back into the fold, based largely on her sunny personality? It’s a question that will take some time to answer. But by tying the party’s electoral success to a single person, the B.C. Liberals are also taking an enormous risk if that person gradually becomes unpopular herself. Because if that occurs, there may not be enough time before the next election to go through yet another re-branding exercise.

Puppy mills ‘vile places’ Re: “PoCo councillor speaks out for animals,” Wednesday, Sept. 28. Kudos to PoCo city councillor Brad West. I’m very pleased that Coun. West is taking on the issue of animal welfare. Since they cannot speak for themselves, it’s up to people to ensure that the dogs and cats we love as members of our family are being looked after. I have seen firsthand the neglect of To The Editor animals in pet stores that disgusts Coun. West, and it disgusts me too. Far too often, the puppies come from puppy mills and are taken away from their mother immediately after birth. They are given no proper care or nutrition and find themselves dropped into a small cage in a pet store with no exercise and a wire bottom. Puppy mills are vile places that have no place in our society. Puppies and other animals mean little more than profit to the people involved with this despicable practice. All the while, thousands of animals are available for adoption looking for loving homes. Coun. West will no doubt face opposition to his plans for greater animal protection from those who make money off of the suffering of animals, but he has my full support and assurance that I will stand up with him.

at risk. Why not create designated priority parking for all available spots closest to curbside, where possible, circling the entire mall (with provision for emergency vehicle access) for all those using mobility aids? Safe access is not debatable. There are vulnerable periods in everyone’s life when mobility is compromised in some way. When my mom was wheelchair-bound in a nursing home, designated handicapped spots were crucial to making medical appointments or shopping possible with her. Pregnancy is a natural condition, though the enormous physical effort of producing a live

baby can trigger adult-onset diseases like gestational diabetes and MS. Personally, I found strollers awkward and cumbersome, preferring to wear my son on-hip in a Kinder sling, which freed my arms and kept him happy and secure, while allowing discreet nursing, the last stage of pregnancy. Offspring securely attached to you in a sling or in harness (I was an adventurous kid!) are difficult to lose in a busy mall. I would have welcomed designated parent parking at that time, as transferring babies and toddlers in and out of vehicles in congested parking lots can be distracting and dangerous for all. A friend of mine slipped and fell on black ice in Coquitlam Centre’s parking lot one Boxing Day; her injuries took years to heal. Twenty years ago, my own infant son fell from an unsecured change table in the women’s washroom at Woodward’s (now Sears). After rushing to Eagle Ridge emergency and 24 anxious hours of him wailing in pain, I reported the incident and resulting change table modifications now prevent falls, thankfully. We all need more exercise than we get, so those drivers who are able-bodied can accept the need to walk a few more steps to shop. I believe we could all respect that. It would be ideal to have an overhead covered walkway from Coquitlam Station to the mall, to encourage and facilitate greater transit use and increase pedestrian safety from vehicle traffic and exposure to the elements. Metrotown offers safe and convenient direct mall access for SkyTrain and transit users. Coquitlam Centre could do likewise and reduce liability. Transit users exercise due consideration; bravo! Priority is given to seniors, people with disabilities, parents with babies/strollers or anyone using mobility aids. Judy Donaghey Port Coquitlam

Former Cape Horn teacher loses teaching licence A former Coquitlam teacher who pleaded guilty last year to sexual assault in the U.S. has been stripped of his B.C. teaching licence. Grant Hoyme, 38, admitted that in July 2009, while attending an educational program in Oregon, he broke into a hotel with a plastic bag over his head and sexually assaulted the female occupant. In September of that year, he returned to his job teaching Grades 4 and 5 at Cape Horn Elementary. As part of a plea agreement, Hoyme spent 30 days in jail, was placed on probation for five years and was ordered to complete alcoholabuse and sex-offender programs. The B.C. College of Teachers says Hoyme surrendered his teaching certificate last June after acknowledging that his conduct was unbecoming of a teacher. A summary of the case was recently placed on the college website. School District 43 Supt. Tom Grant declined to comment on Hoyme’s work history, citing privacy laws. He would only say that Hoyme no longer works for the district but refused to indicate

when his employment ended. Grant stressed that the district takes action in such cases as soon as it becomes aware of them, placing employees on leave — with pay or without — and investigating. Hoyme did not respond to an e-mail request for an interview but is listed as a program coordinator with Ashton College in Vancouver. In another recent discipline agreement, Daniel Anderson Sunter promised to not reapply for a teaching certificate for at least 10 years after he admitted to professional misconduct with a female student. Sunter, who was teaching at two Saanich high schools, exchanged e-mails with a 17year-old girl in 2008, which led to consensual sex in a hotel. A teaching assistant became aware of the incident and reported it to authorities, which led to criminal charges against Sunter for sexual exploitation. The once-popular English teacher was sentenced last year to 14 days in jail. — Janet Steffenhagen, Vancouver Sun

Korean war veterans eligible for special recognition jmcfee@thenownews.com The United States Department of Defense is looking for Korean War veterans from all allied countries to honour with special recognition. “It’s 60 years since the war began in far-off Korea, when in 1950 invading armies from the north came close to taking over the southern half of the Korean peninsula,” Port Moody resident Guy Black said in an e-mail. “At great cost, the overwhelming tide of enemy soldiers were eventually pushed back, and after three years of bloody battle, the war came to an end with a ceasefire in 1953.” During the Korean War from 1950 to 1953, 516 Canadian volunteers died. The United States Department of Defense Commemoration Committee was formed to mark the 60th anniversary of the Korean War during the anniversary period from 2010 to 2013. The committee would like to thank all Korean War veterans from all allied countries by giving them an official commemorative certificate. Korean War veterans who would like to receive the commemorative certificate can contact committee member Guy Black at 944 Dundonald Dr., Port Moody, B.C., V3H 1B7. They can also e-mail him at korea19501953@yahoo. com. Veterans are asked to provide their first and last name, rank, unit or branch of service, dates they were in Korea and mailing address. As well, they are asked to indicate whether they have

October through December best time to get flu vaccine Influenza, commonly called the flu, is a highly contagious infection of the airways caused by the influenza virus. The Canadian Coalition for Immunization Awareness & Promotion (CCIAP) is urging all Canadians — young and old — to protect themselves and those around them against influenza by getting this season’s influenza vaccine. Each year, influenza causes illness among millions of Canadians, according to a press release from the group. “Some people think milder illnesses such as colds or even ‘stomach flu’ are influenza, but they are not,” said Dr. Bonnie Henry, chair of CCIAP. “Influenza is a serious viral infection with symptoms of cough, fever, fatigue and weakness, headache, general aches and pains,

and respiratory congestion. It can take several weeks to recover.” In vulnerable people such as those with chronic health conditions, pregnant women, children between six and 23 months of age, people who are morbidly obese, aboriginal people, residents of nursing homes and other chronic care facilities, and people 65 and older, influenza can lead to serious complications and even death. Between 2,000 and 8,000 Canadians can die of influenza and its complications annually, depending on the severity of the season. The best time to get immunized against influenza is October through to December. The CCIAP advises residents to talk to their local public health department or health care provider about this year’s influenza vaccine.

environment, lifestyle and behaviour contribute to our risk of developing cancer, as well as other chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Any B.C. resident aged 35 to 69 is eligible to join the project. The assessment centre saw participants from across the region; most came from Coquitlam, Burnaby, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, New Westminster and Maple Ridge. While the Coquitlam centre is now closed, it’s not too late for residents to take part in this landmark study.

CHAIR’S REPORT

Richard Rainey Chamber Chair

Of all of the activities undertaken by the Tri Cities Chamber of Commerce, some of the most important are our all candidates meetings. This November, the Chamber will be hosting its all candidates meetings in each of our three cities, for candidates running in the November 19, 2011 local civic elections. The focus of our candidate meetings pertains to issues of concern to local business and, as in past years, there are a number of such issues. As Chamber members and business leaders, we will remind our prospective civic politicians of

the absolutely critical role that business plays in our communities, and the need to be ever vigilant to ensure that our businesses remain sustainable and competitive. While it will always be the case that private businesses will be principally responsible for their own successes and failures, we can’t lose sight of the fact that all levels of government play key roles in promoting – or hindering – business viability. In our communities, businesses continue to feel pressure from unacceptably high business tax rates, and from civic red tape. We suffer from a lack of office space, face risk from the loss of industrial lands, and we have transportation challenges that, frankly, do not seem much closer to a solution that they did at the time of our last local elections in 2008. Local government can make a positive difference in these

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR’S REPORT Michael Hind Executive Director

Small Business is big in the Tri Cities Did you know that over 60% of private sector employees in Canada work for small and medium size businesses? Talk about having a big impact on the Canadian economy. That’s why the Business Development Bank of Canada has designated October 17 to 21 Small Business Week. It is a time to celebrate the thousands of small businesses that enhance our community and way of life every day. The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce is hosting a number of seminars and events during small business week and you don’t have to be a Chamber member to take this opportunity to expand your knowledge and to grow your business. These sessions are informative, entertaining and also a great chance to network and learn more about the Tri-Cities business community. Strong business makes strong communities, and we want the Tri-Cities to be the best place to live, work and play. During this week we recognize the importance of these businesses to the well being of our wonderful community. michaelh@tricitieschamber

I Can Fix That - Principles to Resolve Anything Elaine Allison

Earning govt grants on home renovations

Chamber Member

How do you resolve issues, concerns, demands or challenges? Small business owners are constantly managing multiple conflicts with everyone from customers, suppliers to regulators. It is how they deal with these issues that matters in their life and their business. I’ve always said that conflict can be as good for you as a great piece of chocolate, because when you get to resolve, the release and the relief that one can derive from it—both in the brain and in health is astonishing. What is conflict? I define it very basically and it doesn’t matter whether we’re talking about a war, the conflict you just had yesterday with your spouse, your customer, or with the person in the department store. The only thing that causes conflict is that what you wanted was different than what the other person wanted. Every time that happens, the nanosecond that occurs, you will end up in conflict. The only thing that really matters is if you can get to a resolution. Wars end when countries or disputing groups find resolution. When it is life threatening, a country will need security, but until both sides can sit down and find solutions, conflict will ensue. Many peace treaties have been successfully negotiated throughout the centuries and eventually resolving the conflict has to, and does occur. One of the methods I direct people to is actually identifying

not only what they want but more importantly, what the other person wants. My mantra is, “You can only get what you want if you can give the other person what he or she wants.” So seek the other party’s point of view on the issue first. Then propose your needs and ideas. Another issue to consider is you don’t always have to be right. You probably are right, but if you focus on what the other person wants and provide options (3rd ways), not your way or their way, but alternatives to the issue, you’ll find how quickly you can get to a resolution. Otherwise, you might have to find it through the court system , the boss, or the regulator and they will decide the solution on your behalf if you and the other party don’t come up with options. It usually ends up in a win-lose proposition for both parties and the relationship is damaged. It is then often harboured for a long time and you stay stuck. As mentioned, I’ve coined the term “third ways,” (not your way, or their way), but finding different options. When done efficiently, it can become a guiding principle to solve anything. Elaine Allison, CSP (Certified Speaking Professional) is an international keynote speaker and management and training consultant. She will be the Keynote Speaker for Small Business Week on October 19. Her event takes place at 11:45 AM at Rockwell’s Creekside Grill & Bar.

Dreading another cold and costly winter thanks to your drafty windows and inefficient heating systems? If you’ve thought about upgrading windows, doors, siding, insulation or similar parts of your home, you might consider doing it sooner rather than later. Both the federal and provincial governments are currently offering grants to homeowners for renovations that improve energy efficiency in order to reduce the financial burden of the retrofit project costs. But these taxfree grants won’t be around much longer. The LiveSmart BC Efficiency Incentive program was recently re-instated in July, and is expected to continue

until March 31, 2013 (or earlier if the reserved funding is expended before the deadline). LiveSmartBC offers thousands of dollars in grants to homeowners who improve energy efficiency in their homes. A list of eligible upgrades and the grant amounts can be found on the program’s website at www. livesmartbc.ca. The federal EcoENERGY incentive program offers homeowners grants of up to $5,000. Available until March 31, 2012 (again, this program could end earlier, depending on funding,) the program also helps homeowners who participate in the program save on their energy bills and enjoy a reduced financial burden of upgrading the energy efficiency in their homes. More information on this program can be found at www.ecoaction.ca. Before you start any (Expert continued on Page 4)

renovations, both programs require that a Certified Energy Advisor perform an energy assessment of your home, and again following the project. This is to get an accurate picture of the ‘before and after’ of the retrofit and shows the amount of energy savings which your grant will be based upon. Your contractor can refer you to a Certified Energy Advisor, or you can find a list on each program’s website. When choosing a contractor, remember to consider not only cost, but also value for money. The cheapest estimate may not always offer the best

Be sure to do your homework and be sure that the products you are purchasing offer the best quality and value for your dollar.

New options for used appliances

British Columbians are now able to recycle their used or broken small appliances at more than 100 convenient dropoff locations through a new and unique program called Unplugged, the Small Appliance Recycling Program. Unplugged aims to divert approximately two million small appliances previously destined for the landfill, helping to reduce pollution, save energy and protect the environment, according to a press release. Introduced by the Canadian Electrical Stewardship Association (CESA), Unplugged is the first small appliance recycling program of its kind in Canada and the only government-approved small

appliance recycling program in B.C. The program will accept more than 120 small appliances for recycling, ranging from toasters and electric toothbrushes to countertop microwaves and vacuum cleaners. After an appliance is brought to a drop-off location, it is transported to processors in Western Canada and separated into different materials that are then recycled. Metals will be smelted down and recycled into other metal products, while plastics and glass will be sorted and sold or reused in various manufacturing processes. Accepted electrical products are divided into 14 different categories such as:

kitchen countertop, time measurement, weight measurement, garment care, air treatment, floor cleaning, personal care and designated very small items (e.g. air fresheners), with a corresponding fee attached to each. As a non-profit program, Unplugged will be fully funded by a recycling fee applied to new products brought into B.C. by small appliance manufacturers and retailers. The recycling fee covers all program costs, including collection, transportation and recycling, and may be included in a product’s price or displayed as a separate charge at check-out. A full list of accepted products and fees can be found at unpluggedrecycling.ca.

New program targets smoke alarms AlarmRecycle, a new recycling program for used or expired smoke alarms, carbon monoxide (CO) alarms and combination smoke and CO alarms, launched on Oct. 1. B.C. residents are now able to drop off used smoke and CO alarms for recycling at more than 40 AlarmRecycle drop-off locations across B.C.

Residents can find their nearest drop-off location at www.alarmrecycle.ca or by phoning 1-800-667-4321 toll free. The program launched just before Fire Prevention Week in Canada (Oct. 9 to 15) when local fire departments are reminding British Columbians to test their smoke and carbon monoxide

alarms regularly. AlarmRecycle is a nonprofit program funded entirely by recycling fees applied to the sale of smoke and CO alarms in B.C. As of this week, a $1.20 recycling fee will apply to the sale of a new smoke alarm, and combination smoke and CO alarm. A 60-cent recycling fee will

apply to the sale of a carbon monoxide alarm. The fee may be included in the product price or displayed as a separate charge at check-out. The fee funds the collection, transportation, recycling and safe disposal of returned products, as well as program administration and communication.

We’ll give you New executive director that beautiful smile for hospital foundation Charlene GiovannettiKing, a frequent visitor to the Tri-Cities area for 25 years before settling here with her husband and family four years ago, has been selected as the new executive director of the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation, which supports the Port Moody-based hospital serving Port Moody, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Anmore and Belcarra. Her appointment was announced by foundation board chair Alison Johansen, who said Giovannetti-King would take up her new duties this week. Giovannetti-King, who holds a bachelor of business administration from St. Francis Xavier University, succeeds David Clark, who retired this summer after six years in the post. She joins the foundation after service as vice-president for funds development for the YMCA of Greater Vancouver, where she helped raise $2.5 million during the last four years. Her experience with fundraising and non-profit organizations began in Nova Scotia, where she was chief executive officer of YMCA Cape Breton from 1999 for

“I’m very excited to live and work in the same community … with the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation.”

Charlene Giovannetti-King eight years, during which time she was charged with opening a new facility for the organization, implementing a strategic plan and starting a lottery system that generated $100,000 annually. In addition to a solid history of reporting responsibilities to a board of

directors, managing teams and preparing and working with budgets, she brings professional experience from her involvement in two large capital campaigns, Johansen said. The first was a $10-million campaign with the YMCA of Cape Breton in Sydney, Nova Scotia, and the second was an integrated capital campaign in Vancouver. In earlier years, Giovannetti-King travelled regularly from Nova Scotia to visit family members living in the Tri-Cities, and has a strong affinity for the area. “I’m very excited to live and work in the same community, giving back while challenging and expanding my professional development with the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation,” she said. Giovannetti-King, her husband Darrell and daughters Alysha and Tara have lived in Coquitlam since moving to the West Coast in 2007. As executive director, she leads a staff that includes Karen Horton, director of development; Carly Foster, director of events; Mary Lau, foundation co-ordinator; and Maggie Morrison, development assistant.

Score Card

Young Kodiaks eager to give Rapids a run Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com There’s little doubt about who everyone will be watching in the Fraser Valley North senior girls AAAA volleyball league this year — or from around the province, for that matter. The No. 2-ranked Riverside Rapids have a well-stocked lineup of stars from last year’s provincial silver medal finish. They’ve got the added incentive of feeding off last year’s dramatic championship final. But the Port Coquitlam squad may just have to do a shoulder check on an up-and-coming rival. The Heritage Woods Kodiaks provided the Rapids with a little shock on the weekend when they took a 2-0 (25-22, 25-22) decision in pool play at the Trinity Western Invitational on Friday. It proved to be a timely slap for Riverside, which rebounded from that two-match setback all the way to a tourney title with a convincing 2-0 (25-17, 25-16) win over Earl Marriott in the final. Riverside’s Mallory Sall was named the tournament MVP, while Megan Rosenlund earned an all-star honour. The No. 5-ranked Kodiaks, meanwhile, were bumped in the semifinals by Marriott 2-1. “We had our highs and our lows,” said Heritage assistant coach Sherri Hughes. “It’s not so bad to lose a heartbreaker like that early in the season.” Like Riverside, the Kodiaks are looking at improving on last year’s provincial run. While the Rapids finished a game shy of B.C. gold, Heritage Woods’ young roster wasn’t far behind, in sixth spot. They did that with just one Grade 12, and will proceed again this year with the same configuration — with the starting five in Grade 10 and 11. “We’ve got three provincial calibre players and one of the top under-17 players in the province, so we have the talent,” said Kodiaks coach Alex Seres. The club launched the North zone action with victories over Dr. Charles Best and Port Moody. This year’s lineup is statuesque in nature, ledy by five-foot-11 Grade 11 Alessandra Gentile. The right side was an under-17 B.C. player who anchored the provincial win at the Western Canada Games last month. Her jumping skills — which see her top 10 feet — lead an impressive array of net hawks. “It’s amazing to watch how she can jump so high. I was talking to (UBC coach) Doug Reimer and he said to reach 10 feet is like a pass to university,” said Seres. Also pressing the six-feet height bar are middles Emma Jennings and Victoria Wensley, power Madison Burt and Grade 9 middle Dayna Kern. Each adds another layer of Team B.C. experience to the Kodiaks clubhouse. “You can see that they are at a different level,” said the coach. “When someone can make (Team B.C.), they bring that with them.”

Port Moody’s Kirstn Mase, shown at right while attacking for the University of California-Berkeley, helped the Canadian junior water polo team finish ninth at the FINA World Women’s Junior championships in Italy.

Mase wears maple leaf on her sleeve Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com It could seem like a whole world separates the University of California campus from Trieste, Italy. Kirstn Mase is hoping distance, time and school can help heal the ache of last month’s disappointment at the FINA World Women’s Junior water polo championships The Port Moody water polo player embraced the goals and healthy ambitions of the national women’s junior squad, which was to crack the top eight at the tournament. As a four-year member of the team, she fully knew her window was closing. Finishing ninth — while posting a strong 4-2 record — was not the objective. And although a 12-9 quarterfinal loss to the host squad ended the topeight dream, it also demonstrated how close Canada was to its goals. “We went in with a very young team hoping to place,” Mase told The

NOW. “Our coach’s statement at the start was he wanted us to improve every game and by the end be the best team we could be. “We had our moments but we didn’t quite reach our goals.” Canada’s only setbacks came against eventual champions Spain, 95 in the round robin, and fifth-place Italy. Among the teams they topped were Brazil, Germany, China and Uzbekistan — the latter two earning Canada its ninth-place finish. Closing out with back-to-back wins to capture the consolation bracket was just that — a consolation. But it was something to hang their caps on. “I think after (the loss to Italy) everyone was upset and disappointed because the best we could do now was ninth, and we didn’t come there to finish ninth,” recalled Mase. “After the shock and disappointment was done, we decided that we weren’t going to lose again and if we were going to finish ninth we would do it by playing our best.” Mase’s understandably bittersweet

recollections are toned by the fact that this was her swan song with the team, as she graduates from the junior program. Her evaluation of the tourney may soften as time streams on. Mase said just being able to represent Canada in the pool was a wonderful experience. “Definitely there were a lot of ups and downs but I absolutely loved it. I wouldn’t have wanted to come back if I didn’t, because it required a lot of practice, training and sacrifice.” Her sense of national pride has swelled over the years, making it easy to stand on guard when her homeland comes up for discussion amongst her Berkeley friends. “There’s definitely that pride factor. Playing for my country has definitely increased my sense of national pride. I get very defensive when it comes to Canada and our sports teams,” she said. Entering her third year at the California campus, the five-foot-six driver said studies and sports are constantly duelling for her focus.

The water polo season runs winter to spring, with the team coming off an NCAA second-place finish. Fiesty in the water, Mase said her approach to competition has even given her pause to consider possible career options. “A lot of people say I should go into law because I’m fairly argumentative, but I’m also interested in the forensic side,” the biological anthropology major said. As she starts the Golden Bears fivetimes-a-week training routine, the memories of the Worlds still linger. The future may hold a position on the senior women’s team — but right now Italy still stings. “Being my last year at junior it kind of left a bitter taste in my mouth, because I wanted to do so much. I loved playing on the junior (national) team,” she said. “As captain, really the best thing I could do was be positive and supportive, to encourage my teammates and help anyone who was feeling the pressure.”

Coquitlam picks up first two wins but adds to injured list

The first win of the season brought relief. Hopefully the first winning streak is soon to follow. The Coquitlam Express posted its first two victories of the 2011/12 B.C. Hockey League season on the weekend, beating the Salmon Arm Silverbacks 6-2 on Friday and Alberni Valley Bulldogs 4-3 on Sunday. Sandwiched around those two wins was a disheartening 5-1 loss to the Surrey Eagles. With a 2-3-0 record, Coquitlam is now hunt-

ing for that elusive asset, “consistency,” to toss in the toolbox. Some help in the health department would be a welcome sight, too. The Express got a pair of goals from centre Mitch Nardi on Sunday as the squad exacted some revenge for a loss one week earlier in Alberni. Captain Alex Petan and defenceman Clinton Atkinson, with the game winner, also tallied. On one of Nardi’s goals, winger John Siemer, who has averaged a point-a-game pace while play-

ing on a line with Petan and Alexander Kerfoot, suffered a lower body injury and is out indefinitely. In Coquitlam’s first win, Kerfoot tallied twice while Siemer contributed three points. Steven Layani netted his first of the season but later broke a bone in his hand while blocking a shot. Khalid Devji blocked a total of 68 shots over the two wins, but was pulled after three goals in

Fox stalls in loss to Jugglers

The regular season is a welcome sight for the Terry Fox Ravens. The senior AAA football team completed the exhibition season Friday with a 21-10 loss to Notre Dame — the first loss of the 2011 season for Fox. In the first half Friday the Port Coquitlam crew made a couple of strong marches but were only able to notch a field goal from Brian Hope. Down 7-3 to start the second half, the Ravens witnessed a resurgent Jugglers squad explode for a pair of majors in a span of 3:30. The second touchdown came after a fumble put the ball in Notre Dame’s hands on the 40-yard line. Although Terry Fox closed the gap on an 11-yard TD pass from Trevor Casey to Ashton Passchier, time ran out. “We’re just young and they exposed us,” said Fox co-coach Martin McDonnell. “In fact, it was a closer game than the score indicated. If we can score on those two first half drives, it’s a totally different game.”

Jake Nylund finished with 53 yards rushing, while Mark Casuga picked up 49. Casey completed seven of 16 pass attempts for 63 yards. On defence, Grayson Medwid grabbed six tackles and Tyrel Ratich added four. Fox’s next test comes Friday, 7 p.m. against Earl Marriott at Percy Perry Stadium. The Centennial Centaurs, meanwhile, launch the regular season Friday in Surrey against Lord Tweedsmuir. • The Terry Fox junior Ravens picked up their third win of the exhibition football

season, blanking Vancouver College 20-0 on Thursday. Quarterback Conner McKee set the tone on the first drive, completing two passes and scrambled for 28 yards before scoring on a three-yard dash. He would later hit Adriel Sellars for an eight-yard TD on the final play of the first half. McKee completed the offence with a seven-yard run. He finished with 78 yards rushing and completed five of 11 passes. The Ravens head to Burnaby to play St. Thomas More on Thursday.

Surrey. In that tilt, the Eagles built up a 4-0 lead before Kerfoot got the Express goal midway through the second. To replace the injured, the club picked up a couple of 19-yearold free agents, with forwards Josh McKissock and Brady Shaw coming from Chilliwack and Penticton, respectively. McKissock played in Salmon Arm last year, posting one goal and four assists. Shaw, the son of former NHLer Brad Shaw, starred with the St. Louis under-18 Blues last season. Coquitlam’s next game is Friday, 7 p.m. when Langley visits the Poirier Sports Centre. The Express also hosts defending Coastal Conference champion Powell River, 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Pinske picked to play for Canada at Pan Ams Megan Pinske is heading to Mexico. The Coquitlam native was named to the Canadian national women’s basketball team for the Pan American Games, which run Oct. 14 to 30 in Guadalajara. The Western Washington University guard

was one of 12 athletes selected after a gruelling tryout, which included competing at the 2011 Universiade in Shenzen, China. Canada, which will face pool rivals Brazil, Colombia and Jamaica, is coached by Allison McNeill.

TRUTH IN ''EMPLOYMENT'' ADVERTISING Postmedia Community Publishing makes every effort to ensure you are responding to a reputable and legitimate job opportunity. If you suspect that an ad to which you have responded is misleading, here are some hints to remember. Legitimate employers do not ask for money as part of the application process; do not send money; do not give any credit card information; or call a 900 number in order to respond to an employment ad. Job opportunity ads are salary based and do not require an investment. If you have responded to an ad which you believe to be misleading please call the Better Business Bureau at 604-682-2711, Monday to Friday, 9am - 3pm or email inquiries@bbbvan.org and they will investigate.

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!
