Legalize it? Not in the Tri-Cities Two mayors say no to pot regulation, but PoCo plans to debate the issue Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

$100,000 it spent to do the work in 2006. There are a total of 49 buildings managed by the corporation, including eight in the Tri-Cities, with two in Port Moody. Weissgerber noted some of the items being dumped include sofas, chairs and old TVs, but in one extreme example, she said someone stuffed a mattress in a cardboard recycling bin that had been left open. In that situation, the garbage company wouldn’t take the bin because it was contaminated, so the organization had to pay for a second pickup. And the Port Moody Police

While several B.C. mayors have joined the chorus calling for the regulation of marijuana, the list won’t include two Tri-Cities mayors. Both Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay and Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart told The NOW they will not be signing a letter from the group Stop the Violence BC, which is calling for the regulation and taxation of cannabis. Clay went further, adding he doesn’t personally believe the drug should be legal, arguing pot can be a gateway drug and its distribution network is full of criminal elements. “You can’t legitimize these people,” he said. Last week, eight B.C. mayors signed the letter from STVBC, which asked provincial party leaders to consider regulating and taxing cannabis as a way to reduce crime and undercut the gang activity as a result of the illegal marijuana trade. The list contained the names of several Lower Mainland politicians, including the mayors of Burnaby, Vancouver and City of North Vancouver. Clay suggested decriminalizing pot would only empower the criminal underworld, while legalizing and regulating the drug would glorify it in the eyes of young people. He said treating marijuana like alcohol and cigarettes would lead to rampant abuse. Clay also blasted the argument that pot could be legalized to generate revenue, questioning whether it should be the same for heroin or prostitution. “It’s just a horrible idea for anybody to suggest that would be a motivating factor to legalizing a drug that we know causes so much societal problems in our community,” he said. Clay indicated he’s content with the laws as they stand now, but conceded police officers don’t need to be kicking in doors to bust a couple smoking a joint in their home. Stewart said he understands the medical use of marijuana for treating people with chronic pain and cancer, but maintained the issue is one for the federal government to decide.

Illegal dumping costs add up Social housing authority spends $150,000 to haul away old mattresses, TVs Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Tri-Cities residents hoping to save a buck by dumping old furniture near someone else’s garbage bin may want to think twice — they could end up getting a call from the long arm of the law.

Flooding a possibility this spring Fraser River could overflow its banks, SFU professor says, but Pitt River is not a risk

t would take a perfect storm of varying factors coming together at once, but at least one Simon Fraser University geologist is not ruling out the possibility of flood conditions along the Fraser River this spring. In light of the flash floods in the Interior over the weekend, SFU geologist Brent Ward told The NOW Monday that similar events could happen locally as well. “Later on in the spring, we could be concerned about a flood of the Fraser [River] because with snow packs being high, if we get the right kind of melt, we could have some issues,” he said. Areas around Penticton and Kelowna experienced localized flooding last weekend, leading to evacuation notices being issued. Those evacuation orders were lifted on Sunday. “The issue we had in the Interior was because we have very high snow packs, it was warmer than usual and then it rained,” Ward said. “That caused the increased melting.” He ruled out the possibility of flooding along the Pitt River due to the dikes that are in place, and suggested the Coquitlam River likely won’t flood either due to damming further up in the watershed. But that’s not say that all levy and dike systems are foolproof. “What we’ve seen from other large floods in North America is that when it’s a really big flood, the levies break,” Ward said. “And then, of course, the water piles up behind it and then it’s hard to get rid of it because it has to get pumped out and over the levy and back into the river. It’s trapped in. And

The Fraser River, as seen from Maquabeak Park in Coquitlam, could pose a flood threat this spring. when it does break, the water levels rise very quickly, much more quickly than you would get in a typical Fraser River flood.” In light of the potential for flooding in various areas of B.C., the province released a list of tips Monday to help mitigate the impact of basement flooding: • If water is backing up from your building drain, do not flush the toilet.

Instead, run the washing machine or dishwasher or turn on taps. Call a plumber immediately. • If you are insured, call your insurance company immediately and report any damage. That damage should be documented via photographs and receipts for any repair work done. During the clean-up phase, the province recommends the following measures:

• Open windows and let in fresh air. • Wear protective clothing — overalls, gloves, protective eyewear, rubber boots and a face mask. • Stay clear of all electrical equipment and, if possible, shut off the power. • Remove items of value that are in or near the source of water. • Use fans or humidifiers to speed up drying and reduce dampness.

Three-per-cent tax rate hike in Poco John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Port Coquitlam residents can expect an average property tax hike of just under three per cent. With the exception of Coun. Darrell Penner, council unanimously endorsed the first three readings of the city’s tax bylaw Monday. The tax rate of 2.97 per cent applies to all property types — residential and business, among others — and translates to a $56 increase over 2011 tax levels for an average home assessed at $511,000.

Utility increases will see water rates go up by $25 and sewer fees by $16. However, the city’s garbage rates did not increase for the third straight year due to high waste-diversion rates. Those rate increases add up to $97 in additional charges for 2012. The primary cost drivers behind the tax increase include improvements to the Mary Hill community police station, a new artificial turf field and infrastructure renewal and replacement. “The message that I heard loud and clear was, ‘You guys have to do more with less.’ It’s an easy statement to say and

it’s something that I think we struggled with this budget,” said Mayor Greg Moore. As the lone councillor to vote against the budget, Penner would have preferred more funds for police and fire services, suggesting he was “extremely disappointed” with the budget. He suggested upgrading the Mary Hill community police station without allocating more money for policing services is akin to buying new property without insuring it. “My concerns are not only for this year, but for next year,” he said. “This council, with this budget, is digging us

in a hole.” Coun. Brad West echoed the sentiments of Moore, saying the city had a tough time balancing budget requests with the money in its coffers. “In economic times like this, families in Port Coquitlam have had to stretch their own dollars at home and we’ve had to do the same thing here,” West said. “It’s a budget thaw that protects the core city services the people depend upon, and provides some community enhancements that have been long sought after, like the new turf field.” “None of us are ever happy

about increasing taxation, but it is a good compromise and it’s worthy of support, from my point of view,” added Coun. Mike Forrest. A provision in the budget suggests the city identify external funding sources above and beyond property taxation, a notion Coun. Michael Wright suggested be taken to the Union of B.C. Municipalities. “Unless we get the cooperation of higher levels of government, such as the provincial government, I’m not sure that we will ever find those new sources of revenue,” he said.

“The question is a federal question, and the issue needs to be addressed federally,” he said. Stewart argued much like decisions on war or trade relationships with Asian countries, the pot debate is out of the city’s mandate. “We should be focusing on the business we’ve been hired to do and make sure we do it really well,” he said. Meantime, the mayor of Port Coquitlam won’t be making the decision to sign the letter on his own. The request by STVBC is scheduled for debate at an upcoming Port Coquitlam city council intergovernmental committee meeting.

However, Mayor Greg Moore said he personally remains undecided on the issue. “This is one I’m really struggling with,” he admitted. “For me, this is something that I want to make sure when I put my name to this one — if we do — it’s based on what city council believes is the right direction, not just based on my own thoughts.” Moore said he sees both sides of the issue, suggesting STVBC makes a compelling argument for regulation, but also that marijuana can be a gateway drug. He said he also expects the debate around the council chambers to be difficult for his colleagues. According to its website,

Carney scores high in rankings Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

“Schools are more than just provincial exams … Sometimes, you just can’t quantify things.”

Coquitlam Teachers’ Association

But both the school board and Coquitlam Teachers’ Association (CTA) aren’t putting much stock into the rankings. Board chair Melissa Hyndes said the report is just one tool of assessment and not based

He challenged the union to join in advocating for measurement of greater aspects of schools to make the rankings more complete and inclusive. “It’s not because they can’t. It’s because they [teachers] don’t want to,” Cowley said. A total of nine secondary schools in the district were ranked in the report in alphabetical order: • Archbishop Carney (the only independent school of the nine) in PoCo ranked 35th and scored 7.9 out of 10. • Centennial in Coquitlam ranked 198th and scored 5.3 out of 10. • Dr. Charles Best in Coquitlam ranked 40th and scored 7.7 out of 10. • Gleneagle in Coquitlam ranked 103rd and scored 6.5 out of 10. • Heritage Woods in Port Moody ranked 35th and scored 7.9 out of 10. • Pinetree in Coquitlam ranked 73rd and scored 7.0 out of 10. • Port Moody ranked 103rd and scored 6.5 out of 10. • Riverside in Port Coquitlam ranked 108th and scored 6.4 out of 10 • Terry Fox in Port Coquitlam ranked 157th and scored 5.7 out of 10.

As student progress reports make their way home for the first time this year, there is another more controversial report card available for parents to gauge secondary schools in the Tri-Cities. The Fraser Institute published its annual ranking of B.C. secondary schools this week, which gave schools in School District 43 a pretty good grade. Out of 52 districts, School District 43 tied for eighth place with the KootenayColumbia school district. School District 43 high schools received a total score of 6.8 out of 10, with West Vancouver topping all school districts with a score of 8.3. Two schools, Dr. Charles Best in Coquitlam and Archbishop Carney Regional Secondary School in Port Coquitlam, made the institute’s fastest-improving school list. The top-ranked school in the district was a tie between Heritage Woods Secondary in Port Moody and Archbishop Carney, which both ranked 35th on the list out of 280 schools in the province. The two schools scored a 7.9 out of 10. The rankings are based on seven indicators using data from the annual provincewide exams administered by the Ministry of Education. Peter Cowley, the Fraser Institute’s director of school performance studies, told The NOW that although some parents use the rankings to decide on a school for their child, most have kids enrolled in a school and they want to know how it is doing.

on the only assessment teachers do in a classroom. She also added the board does not agree with the rankings, nor should they be “banked on” as the only assessment that happens. CTA president Teresa Grandinetti argued the results are based on narrow parameters and don’t look at the broad spectrum of what goes on in public schools, especially what is done well in School District 43. She argued the district has a great track record of graduating kids with special needs, but who might not score that well on provincial exams. “Schools are more than just provincial exams,” Grandinetti said, suggesting the rankings undermine the public school system, noting the top schools tend to be private. “Sometimes you just can’t quantify things.” Cowley agrees the rankings only take into account a certain segment of what is important in schools, and don’t include other elements like sports, arts and leadership. Cowley suggested the teachers’ union argues those things can’t be measured, but he disagrees.

Opinion

Are city councillors listening? Re: “Coquitlam plans town-hall meeting Saturday,” Friday, April 27. I read with dismay that four city councillors wouldn’t be attending the town-hall meeting on Saturday, April 28. Several years ago Coquitlam city council reinstated town hall meetings. At the time it was presented as an opportunity for council to hear the residents. To The City council has many opportunities to make their voices known and to speak on issues, however opportunities for input from residents is limited. Questions at council meetings from the press and public are limited to items on the agenda, or to specific items at public hearings.

Coquitlam spent many dollars trying to get a better turnout from residents to vote for their elected officials and to see an increase from the dismal 20per-cent voter turnout range. Prior to the November election, city council candidates readily attended all-candidates meetings to have their say. Yet five months later, only half of elected city councillors bother to show up when residents have their chance to Editor have their say at a town-hall meeting. Some residents won’t go to town-hall meetings because they don’t believe that city council is willing to listen. Apparently, half of Coquitlam city council agrees.

Attitude problem is killing people

T

here’s something seriously amiss with the attitude that underlies the way British Columbia enforces its laws, especially as they pertain to offences committed with motor vehicles wielded as weapons. That will come as no surprise to the majority of motorists who try to stick to the rules — or close to them — and encounter jerks who flaunt their disregard for the limbs and lives of others every day. High-profile cases such as Grant De Patie’s, in Maple Ridge, highlight the problem. The young gas station attendant was dragged to his death beneath a stolen car by a driver stealing $12 worth of gas. Grant’s killer, convicted of manslaughter in 2006, will be free this July. He was banned from driving for 10 years. A special law, “Grant’s Law,” was instituted to prevent similar occurrences — and only a handful of years after Grant’s death, it is already watered down and fading out. In another high-profile case, in Langley, Brent Parent stands convicted of using his vehicle to run down and kill Silas O’Brien. The Crown has asked for eight years of jail time and a 15-year driving ban. Parent has 64 driving convictions under his belt, including numerous speeding offences and actions that prompted temporary bans — including driving while banned. Parent’s defence attorney is asking for perhaps three years in jail and a three-year driving ban, restricted to employment-only use. We’d like to ask how anyone could justify ever giving this guy his licence back. Indeed, we’d like to ask how it is that he hasn’t been banned permanently, a long time ago — since before he killed O’Brien, in fact. There’s an attitude problem at play here, and it is not just the attitude of the offenders that is problematic.

He’ll be expected to offer more details in the run-up to the next vote and he insists his party will put forward a fully costed election platform. In the meantime, his go-slow approach continues to madden the B.C. Liberals, who would love to target him more but find very little to aim at. And so the government will have to content itself with that at-times frightening roller coaster ride it’s stuck on. And the New Democrats and their leader will plod on, taking things one slow step at a time, just like a pony ride. When they finally get into government, they’ll be on a much faster ride, believe me.

Most people in the community have no idea of this decision as there was no public consultation. A community should have a say on what’s important to the neighbourhood — not have vital parts of it disposed of in secret. I strongly believe that almost everyone in the community would like Rochester Pool (at 1390 Rochester Ave., beside Maillard Middle School) to remain open, especially as Mackin Pool (a few blocks away) has also been destroyed. I’ve met a surprisingly high number of school-aged children in Maillardville who have little to no swimming ability. Without a pool or beach in the area, there will be many more. If Rochester Pool were open before school was out, it could be a tremendous resource for local schools and students for field trips and gym classes, as well as a revenue generator for the pool. Spani and Eagle Ridge are too far to walk to for most children in Maillardville — I took a group of kids to the Poirier Sport & Leisure Complex (the old Chimo Pool), which is much

I’m hopeful we can work together with the city on finding a better solution. What do you want to be remembered for by everyone? Do you want to be remembered for saying “Rochester Pool should be demolished,” or do you wish to be remembered as a champion of the community of Maillardville and an inspiration to voters?

Editor’s note: The City of Coquitlam issued a press release Tuesday stating that “no decision has been made to permanently close Rochester Pool, despite some work being done to temporarily fill in the basin.” To read the full press release, visit www.thenownews.com.

Where will the families and citizens of Maillardville swim on hot summer days? Over 127,785 people live in Coquitlam and the city is growing. There are only two outdoor pools and no beaches for all of those people. Last year, Eagle Ridge Pool was closed to film Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3. Would this (and the revenue generated from this) be possible with only two pools? What if one pool needs repairs? Where will the thousands who went to Rochester and Mackin pools go? Can you honestly imagine that the two remaining pools won’t be overcrowded?

Every time I’ve been to Rochester Pool it’s been an amazing gathering of the community, full of familiar faces, with everyone having a fantastic time. We need more of these spaces in the community, not less. I’m hoping the city will see the value of investing in something that contributes to a healthy, vibrant community. If they don’t, perhaps Vancity or another organization or philanthropist will. I believe increasing the amount of healthy and positive activities that youth, kids and people can do in a community will decrease the amount of negative activities in that community. It’s a small investment that would provide jobs, prevent and reduce delinquency and

Tri-Cities exploring new business licence John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Councils across the Tri-Cities are banding together around a chamber of commerce initiative to institute a mobile business licensing strategy for the region. As it stands, businesses that operate in more than one city must purchase a business licence in each community. The mobile business licence model would allow a business owner to operate across Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam. “More and more businesses are mobile these days, and more and more people are travelling outside their city limits to do business, so it’s geared towards all those people specifically,” said Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce executive director Michael Hind. Chamber representatives have made their pitches to each of the three councils in recent months, and most recently presented to PoCo and Port Moody councils. Now that those presentations have wrapped up, a working group consisting of councillors and staff from each of the three cities is studying the nuances of the issue. The group is chaired by Coquitlam Coun. Craig Hodge, and also includes Port Moody Coun. Diana Dilworth and PoCo Coun. Mike Forrest. “The whole point of this is to make it easier for businesses to operate within the Tri-Cities, to give the consumers more choice and the

ease of administration that we would have by only having one set of licences,” Hodge said. The move to a mobile-licensing strategy would affect a number of different sectors, particularly those involved in the trades. Others who would be affected include restoration companies, mechanics, landscapers and photographers. Similar mobile licensing systems are in place on Vancouver Island and in the Okanagan. “My sense is that there’s probably a whole bunch of individual small business functions that are going on without licensing presently that may or may not be interested in licensing, but they’re sure not interested in spending licensing money in a bundle of communities that each charge their own amount,” Forrest said. One of the main sticking points of instituting a mobile licensing system, however, is how the money gets divvied up among the three cities. “The working group has certainly got an open mind and is looking at creative solutions that could include a pooled fund of mobile licence fees, or a pooled fund that could be based on a Simon Fraser-type of per capita funding formula,” Dilworth said. “That fund could be used so we could each pay our own chamber of commerce fees. It could be used for regional economic initiatives that would see us working in cooperation  CONTINUED ON PAGE 10, see INPUT WANTED.

Riverview’s historical artifacts to be protected The City of Coquitlam and Provincial Health Services Authority have entered into an agreement to transfer the collection of historical artifacts from Riverview Hospital to the city. The collection consists of unique and rare equipment — artifacts, furnishings and photographs that document the history of psychiatric care in B.C. dating from the 1800s and tell the story of 100 years of mental health care at Riverview Hospital. The city will store the collection for safe keeping, according to a press release issued Monday, with the intent that it eventually be showcased in a suitable display facility. “Coquitlam values our rich heritage and it is important that this collection stay in the city,” said Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart. “We appreciate working with Provincial Health Services Authority and the Riverview Historical Society to preserve these artifacts for future generations.” Anna Tremere, a local resident volunteer and retired psychiatric nurse of Riverview Hospital, started the collec-

Right now, no idea is a bad one at the table.” Dilworth also noted that “many more businesses” are going into Port Moody and paying the city a mobile licensing fee than those that are leaving the city to do business. “Potentially, there is a loss of revenue for the City of Port Moody, because the number of businesses that reside here that would be paying a mobile licence fee is not offset by the revenue that we would lose by businesses paying for the mobile licence in their home community,” she said. Though a meeting schedule has not been established for the group, members want feedback from the local business community.

Participants will be allowed to use their screens for work or school related purposes.

Get measles vaccine, travellers told The BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) is advising travellers destined for many parts of the world — including Europe and the Summer Olympic Games in London — to ensure their measles vaccination is up to date. Measles has been on the rise in many regions of the world in the last few years, according to a press release, including in Europe. In 2011, multiple importations of measles from Europe resulted in an outbreak of almost 800 cases in Quebec. In 2010, B.C. had an outbreak of about 80 cases following three separate importations, two of which were linked to the Winter Olympic Games. For children and adults born after 1956, two doses of measles-containing vaccine are recommended. The Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) vaccine is available at no charge for anyone who was born after 1956 and does not have a record of receiving two doses. The MMR vaccine is given to children in B.C. as part of their routine immunizations at 12 months of age and in kindergarten. Children travelling to parts of the world where measles is common should receive these doses prior to travel. Measles is a very contagious infection that causes a rash all over the body. It is spread when an infected person coughs, sneezes or shares food or drinks. The measles virus

can travel through the air. This means that you can get measles if you are near some-

one who has the virus, even if that person doesn’t cough or sneeze directly on you.

Speak with your family doctor or public health nurse to arrange vaccination.

here are plenty of challenges to take part in at this time of year — a run or triathlon might be what comes to mind first. But there is one challenge that could prove more difficult in the age of technology — turning off your screen for anything other than work or school. Though it might sound impossible, it’s exactly what some brave families across the country and in the TriCities are doing as part of the annual Screen-Free Week. The week kicked off on Monday and runs until May 6. Kirsten Anderson, a “toyologist” with the Village Toy Shop in Port Moody, said with winter coming to an end, it’s a great time to be looking at how much time families spend in front of the screen. According to Anderson, preschool children spend, on average, more than four and a half hours a day consuming screen media, while older children spend more than seven hours a day, including multitasking. The idea of Screen-Free Week is to give kids a chance to read, play, think, be physic-

Saints strike for first win of the season There’s something new in the air at the PoCo Rec Centre. Besides the musty smells of an old rink, the Port Coquitlam Saints are bringing a new attitude and polished approach that was in short supply in past years. The Saints launched the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League season with an impressive rally to knock off the Langley Thunder on Friday, led by the sniper skills of Tyler Klarner and Nash Harrison. Both players cashed in three times as PoCo erased a 5-1 deficit over the final 40 minutes to win 9-7. Klarner tallied three times in a span of 2:45 and turned the tables for the home team. The defence, meanwhile, settled down after a shaky first period to silence the Thunder in the second period. “The big thing for us was coming back from being down,” Saints coach Nick Delmonico said. “It was something we haven’t been able to do often and I think it showed that we’ve got some new jump and a good focus to start the year.” Harrison finished with six points on the day, while Garrett Chan added two goals and two assists. Scoring the other goal was Cody L’Arrivee. Two days later, PoCo put up a valiant fight before falling 10-7 to the visiting Victoria Shamrocks. Markers from Chan and Adam Schulstad briefly gave the Saints the lead in the first frame, but the ‘Rocks replied and nudged ahead with a pair of powerplay goals. PoCo pulled even 5-5 late in the second period but Victoria tallied twice — including their third shorthanded goal of the game — to get back in front. Chan and Harrison finished with two goals and two assists apiece, while Brock Whiteley and Evan Wortley added singles. PoCo’s next game comes Sunday in Nanaimo.

Adanacs top T-men

For exactly six seconds, the Coquitlam junior Adanacs were chasing the Nanaimo Timbermen. The rest of Saturday’s season opener saw the defending B.C. champion Adanacs rolling away with it. Coquitlam kicked off the 2012 season by blasting Nanaimo 11-4 on the Island, despite dressing just 14 players. Cole Shafer led the attack with four goals, while Matthew Dinsdale netted a goal and set up four others. Reid Reinholdt, with two, and singles by Tyler Garrison, Michael Messenger, Vincent Ricci and Tayler Stuart, rounded out the offence. The Adanacs take on the Delta Islanders tonight, 7:30 p.m. at the Coquitlam Sport Centre.

Coquitlam’s Mathew Barzal will be the centre of attention Thursday when the Western Hockey League hosts its annual Bantam Draft. The Burnaby Winter Club centreman has been rated by numerous scouts and websites as the top 15-year-old player in Western Canada.

Coquitlam teen centre of WHL attention Stories by Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com

A

t the age of 15, Coquitlam’s Mathew Barzal has an array of options before him — and then some. Like a lot of teenagers who juggle school, a social life, sports and potential career choices, he is enjoying the now while seeking out a future. What’s got others talking, however, is his future in hockey. Fresh off of captaining his Burnaby Winter Club AAA bantam squad to its second consecutive Western Canadian title, the Dr. Charles Best Secondary student is preparing for a lot of attention in the next few days as the Western Hockey League holds its annual Bantam Draft on Thursday. Various junior hockey websites — including Yahoo.com and Western Elite Hockey Prospects — have him rated first overall entering Thursday’s draft. YouTube video clips and Vancouver news shows have displayed his skills and determination. The Seattle Thunderbirds, who hold the No. 1 pick in the WHL draft, would like nothing more than to have him in

green for 2012-13. Through the chatter and questions, Barzal fields the attention calmly and, judging by his demeanour and answers in an interview with the NOW, as skillfully as he does a two-on-one breakout. “Yeah, it’s getting close so I’ve been thinking a lot about it,” said Barzal of the 15-year-old draft. “I’m still looking at both (WHL and junior A hockey) options, including school. I’m confident that going to the [WHL] would be a good fit if I choose it.” When your name pops up regularly alongside current NHL Rookie-of-theYear candidate Ryan Nugent-Hopkins — who also was groomed through BWC — the buzz can get mighty busy. But Barzal, as he showed this season in Burnaby, isn’t one to lose his focus. “I had one goal in mind this year and that was to help my team win the [Western Canadians], so I channeled my energy to that. I tried not to think about [scouts and the draft].” On a squad deep in draftable talent, Barzal supplied a lot of the critical glue to ensure that nothing could distract the team from its target. As a 13-yearold call-up in 2010, he gleaned valuable experience and saw how leaders lead under high pressure situations.

He applied those lessons in 2011 as a first-year bantam player and was a key player on that championship team. Barzal then upped the challenge and his own expectations this past season — with golden results. “Winning [in 2011] was special,” he noted. “This year we had five returning guys so we knew what it took. We brought that experience into the locker room… Last year we had a lot of good leaders on the team that I looked up to and listened to. I took everything in.” Repeating as Western Canadian champions was front and centre. A groin injury early in the season put Barzal behind the eightball but it resulted in him working harder and smarter to stay game-ready. When the regular season wrapped up, he had tallied a resounding 39 goals and 107 points in 35 games. It’s his attention to detail and intensity that helps elevate him above the crowd, his coach said. “He applies himself to everything he does, he works out extremely hard to get stronger and bigger,” notes BWC bantam coach John Batchelor. “His core strength is incredible and you see it when he’s got the puck. It’s hard for the bigger players to get that puck away

from him. You can’t knock him off his feet easily.” Playing since the age of four, Barzal has what appears to be an innate sense of the ice, of how a play should unfold. Batchelor, who coached NugentHopkins as a bantam, marvels at how the Coquitlam teen can turn a splitsecond opportunity into a consistent scoring opportunity. “He sits right at the top with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins,” says Batchelor of his top bantam player. “He sees the game so well and has a vision of the ice that few players have. It’s extraordinary, and he can do it all at a high speed. In my mind he’s No. 1 (in the draft), no question.” The comparisons to Nugent-Hopkins — which have been repeated by others in the hockey world — is what has teams like the Seattle Thunderbirds, Prince Albert Raiders (No. 2) and Prince George Cougars (No. 3) counting down the hours. At the age of 12, Barzal wowed spectators at the Quebec International Peewee Tournament by leading all scorers with 22 points in seven games. It lead to his joining Burnaby’s bantam  CONT.

With their hardware in tow, Coquitlam athletes, from left, Josh Killins, Connor Culhane, Chris Culhane, Grace Killins and Josephine Choi made a splash at the Canadian Junior Racquetball championships last week in Winnipeg.

Coquitlam players cash in at juniors Five flew out and seven returned — a good conversion rate. Five Coquitlam racquetball players ventured to Winnipeg last week for the Canadian Junior championships and returned with seven medals. Leading the way was 13-year-old Josephine Choi, who, with partner Jewel Sauve of Montreal, captured gold in the girls 14-under doubles and silver in 16-under doubles. Choi’s play also resulted in her being awarded the Female Sportsmanship Award for the tournament.

The Coquitlam pairing of Chris Culhane and Josh Killins earned the Canadian junior title in 12-under doubles, while Culhane also picked up bronze in 12-under boys singles. Grace Killins also came away with gold, topping the 10-under girls singles competition. Placing fifth in both 16-under and 18-under boys singles was Connor Culhane. Chris Culhane and Grace Killins were named to Team Canada and are eligible to represent Canada at the 2012 World Junior championships in Los Angeles in November.

squad as a call-up for the Western Canadians, where the club finished third. That set the ground work for the past two championships — on a team that could have as many as five players chosen in the first two rounds of the 2012 bantam draft. Barzal says this year’s roster grew through the adversity into a squad that could convert the sting of four straight losses into a final victory. “This year we faced our share of adversity, especially losing four times in a row to Cloverdale before meeting them in the (B.C.) final. Everyone came together on that goal, so we learned that through hard work the best teams win,” said Barzal. He scored the game winner in a 6-5 win, earning the Bruins a berth into the Western Canadians. There, they capped an incredible season with a 3-0 win over Edmontonbased Southgate in the final. Now, with all the titles wrapped up, Barzal is ready to embrace whatever happens in the draft. It will be an important option in his goal of playing in the NHL someday. “[Going #1] would be very exciting, you look at the players who’ve gone No. 1 before and who’ve gone on to the

NHL, which is my goal too, and it’s pretty impressive,” he said. “I try to get away from the

game as much as I can but I’m so passionate about the game that it follows me everywhere.”
