Adding storeys: from 4 to 37

Plans changing for Coquitlam development John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Coquitlam residents will get an opportunity to have their say later this month on a proposal that would see close to 50 additional storeys added to a development in the City Centre area. Polygon Homes has introduced a series of major changes to the Windsor Glen development near Lincoln Avenue and Pipeline Road, and those changes pertain to three buildings in particular. The proposal would see two buildings originally slated to be eight storeys move to 24 storeys, while the other building would become a 37-storey tower as opposed to four storeys. A staff report notes the proposed amendments reflect changes in development patterns in the City Centre area since the proposal first came before council in 2007 — density has increased in the area, while planning policies have shifted to accommodate and support transit. “We have to recognize, particularly with projects that take multiple years to build out, that we want the housing form to evolve as necessary to make sure it reflects the best we can do, rather than the best we could do five years ago when it was originally approved,” Mayor Richard Stewart said in an interview Tuesday.  CONT.

Kristen Roberts holds the ashes of her Yorkshire terrier, Rosie, who was killed by what appeared to be a pit bull near Ranch Park in Coquitlam. Now Roberts and her boyfriend, Arey Karasin, are calling for tougher laws to prevent such a tragedy from happening again.

Pit-bull attack traumatizes couple Two men try to save Yorkshire terrier attacked near Coquitlam’s Ranch Park

Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com For Kristen Roberts and her family, little Rosie was the centre of attention. The 10-month-old Yorkshire terrier was constantly by the college student’s side, even making trips to visit her grandfather in his care home. But that all changed two Sundays ago near a Coquitlam park. Roberts’ boyfriend Arey Karasin had taken Rosie on a puppy play date to a friend’s house near Ranch Park on April 29.

When the date was over that evening, Karasin decided to walk Rosie one last time to give her a bathroom break before the ride home to Langley. But as Karasin walked up Daybreak Avenue near Saddle Street, a dog he believes to be a pit bull appeared out of nowhere, with no leash or owner in sight. That’s when the evening went terribly wrong. Karasin described to The NOW what happened next. The large dog immediately attacked Rosie, clamping its jaws down on the much smaller puppy.

Karasin yelled for help as he fought off the attacking pit bull in an effort to save Rosie. “I was just screaming for help, getting bruised up on the [ground],” he said. A struggle ensued for five minutes, with Karasin sustaining his own wounds to his knees and arms in the melee. The attack only ended after Karasin’s friend heard the pleas and came out to help. The pit bull eventually let Rosie go. “It was a long fight. Once it got her [Rosie], it was a struggle to get it off,” he said.

Karasin and his friend immediately took the puppy to the Central Animal Emergency Clinic, but it was too late. Rosie’s heart stopped beating. “This is tough for both of us and anybody that knew her [Rosie],” a still very emotional Roberts said. “It’s been devastating. She was my companion every day. She went everywhere with me.” Now Roberts and her family want to find the pit bull and its owner to make sure a similar attack is prevented. The family has plastered posters  CONTINUED ON PAGE 8, see CITY.

t was an unsettling start to the week for a Coquitlam neighbourhood, after gunfire erupted out front of a home on Balmoral Avenue. Coquitlam Mounties were still at the scene investigating, hours after shots were fired at the vacant house in the 1500 block of Balmoral — just north of Como Lake Avenue near the Chineside area of Coquitlam — early Monday morning. Norm Hansford said he was awoken just after 4 a.m. by a loud roar coming from next door, just a few feet from his bedroom window. “I just looked out the window and there were guys jumping in the car and then buggering off. There were two cars in the driveway that tore off,” he told The NOW. Hansford said he thought he heard about eight shots, but at the scene, many more bullets were visible across the driveway. “The whole thing was a couple seconds. It wasn’t one at a time,” he said. “It was just a roar.” No one was injured, and there didn’t appear to be any damage to houses in the area. Hansford said his wife heard some noises coming from the house prior to the shooting, but assumed it was a bear or a raccoon. “I don’t know what they [suspects] were doing,” he said, adding he never got a good look at the suspects as they sped away from the house. Hansford, who has lived in the neighbourhood for 25 years and can’t recall any similar incidents, said he knew the former owners of the house a couple years back, but noted the home has since been rented. A quick Internet search of 1557 Balmoral Ave. showed the house was up for sale, but no price was listed and it’s unclear if it was ever sold. Despite having bullets fly near his bedroom, Hansford said the incident doesn’t make him nervous. Meanwhile, police were saying little about the incident, other than they believe the shooting was targeted and the public is not at risk. “We’re definitely looking into everything, including the background of the associated property’s history,” said RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung. Chung said investigators aren’t sure why the suspects were at the home, nor could he confirm if the shooting was drug-related. Police believe the suspects left in two vehicles, and are asking anyone with information to contact the local detachment at 604-945-1550. twitter.com/jercoquitlamnow

Fraser Mills plan is changing One of Coquitlam’s largest residential developments in recent memory is now going to resemble areas in San Francisco and Barcelona, its developer claims — after new information shows surface parking can be replaced with amenities like parks and cafés. Original geotechnical work for the Fraser Mills site suggested most of the underground parking could only be one or 1.5 levels at most because of the high water table, a city staff report notes. However, further geotechnical work now indicates most of the structured parking on the site can be fully accommodated below grade. Changes to the development plan were put on display at Monday’s committee meeting, where council and city staff saw drawings and new concept plans that will increase public open space on the 89-acre site in south Coquitlam. The overall scope of the plan remains largely unchanged, as the development is still predicted to accommodate up to 3,700 units, 175,000 square feet of commercial space, 72,000 square feet of amenity space and more than 500,000 square feet of industrial space. What is changing, however, is the layout and esthetic of the site. “This makes a good plan better,” said Jim McIntyre, the city’s manager of planning and development. Many of the proposed changes came after the Beedie Development Group retained a new architect to work on the project. Having been a part of projects like the Woodward’s and Telus building develop-

spaces to be included in the buildings themselves. “I really like the idea that the green space is now on the ground because the neighbours will meet neighbours,” Coun. Mae Reid said. “You just won’t meet the people in your apartment block. You’ll get to meet everyone.” The building types are also being re-examined, as the old plan called only for woodframe buildings between three and six storeys, and larger highrises ranging from 18 to 38 storeys. However, a move to include mid-rise buildings in the range of seven to 17 storeys is now being looked at to create “a more varied and interesting building mass.” “A real city has a variety of shapes and forms that allows it to evolve over time in a master plan,” Henriquez said. “Rather than seeing it all as Fraser Mills, maybe there’s a way to start to envision neighbourhoods within Fraser Mills. It’s a large place …

maybe we can look at it with a sort of waterfront edge district, a market square district, an uptown district, even a rail town district.” The development’s proximity to the Fraser River was taken into account, as a linear path and park system will stretch along the waterfront. A two-tiered wharf is also planned, with a bandshell or other entertainment site on the top level and two ramps with direct access to the water below. Dave Gormley, vice-president of land development with Beedie, said he’s hopeful the development permit process will be completed by the fall, followed by a marketing campaign later this year. He added that construction could start in either the first or second quarter of next year, and will likely take two years. “We feel that the revised plan is superior to the plan we brought to council in 2008,” he said.

ments in Vancouver, architect Gregory Henriquez spoke to council about how shifting the onsite parking to underground lots will free up areas above ground to include more public open space. “This is the same density, the same heights, the same things that were there before,” Henriquez said. “The only real difference now is that we’ve added that layer of urban design. By putting the parking underground, we’ve really created what a real city should be.” Those new open spaces could include areas for parks, cafés or communal gathering places. Henriquez pointed to areas in Vancouver’s West End, San Francisco and Barcelona as the templates. “We’re talking about small, little pocket parks where you can have a lover’s quarrel or kids can throw a ball up against the wall,” he said.

Opinion

Legalization: opposing views Re: “Why not have a discussion on legalization?” letter to the editor, Friday, May 4. Mr. Marc Dube’s attack on Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay is a cheap attack and disturbing act to support legalization of marijuana. Are we, as a society, so afraid of the criminal acts of these so-called gangsters that we would be willing to give up our basic morals, to allow these illegal substances to destroy the lives of children, To The families and, eventually, our society? Or is it to save expenses in keeping these criminals in jails? So, come on, Mr. Dube and others supporting the legalization of marijuana, do some real thinking and look at the consequences in bowing and playing “chicken” behind the gangsters.

Let’s declare the war against the criminals and give all the help and support to our law enforcement units. Juhani (Jhn) Jokinen Port Moody ••• Marc Dube got an arrow-splitting bull’s-eye.

Our View

Prepare for disaster before it strikes

O

ver the years it has become pretty clear that disasters happen. They can run from limited tragedies like car crashes, wet basements or house fires all the way to earthquakes, floods and forest fires that escape containment and wipe out entire communities. While the biggest concern in these parts — at this time of year — is the possibility of massive flooding of the Fraser River (and to a lesser extent, some of the local creeks and streams), we’ve had nearly all of the standard disasters played out in B.C. We’ve even had the occasional hurricane, to mix up our expectations a bit. We can’t know exactly when or how a disaster will take place, and even when we have forewarning, as in a Fraser flood, it’s difficult to judge the precise impact to expect. That’s why general preparedness is important for everyone. And part of that has to be about being personally prepared, and knowing how, when the chips are down, to lend a hand to desperate neighbours. When disaster strikes, emergency workers may not reach everyone for several days. This week is Emergency Preparedness Week across Canada. It’s a national awareness campaign that encourages everyone to take three simple steps to become better prepared to face a range of emergencies: • Know the risks specific to your community. • Develop a family emergency plan and practise it. • Prepare emergency kits for your home and your vehicle. To learn more about being prepared for a disaster, visit the Emergency Management BC website at www.pep.bc.ca and the Public Safety Canada website at www.getprepared. gc.ca. And check out Page 21 for information on workshops planned for Port Coquitlam.

ing more and more of its policies. This also creates a problem, but as well perhaps an opportunity for Premier Christy Clark. As Dix and the NDP inevitably find themselves criticizing the federal government more and more on various issues, it will be interesting to see where Clark comes down on those same issues. She has yet to take a position on the Enbridge pipeline, insisting not enough evidence has been produced to allow for an informed opinion on it. I’m not sure how long she can stay on the fence, particularly as the issue heats up, as it undoubtedly will. Clark needs to find an issue or two that resonates with the public if she has any chance of winning re-election. As the Harper government becomes unpopular in this province, will she distance herself from that government in a clearly defined way? Or she will cling to her failing attempts at appearing to be more conservative than she really is, to beat down support for the B.C. Conservative party? Dix has already staked out his position when it comes to the Harper government, and it’s likely one that will shore up his party’s popularity in this province. Will Clark try to share that turf? If she does, it will mean the cordial, even warm, relationship that has existed between the B.C. government and the one in Ottawa for more than a decade will be over. And if Dix does indeed become premier, that relationship will be icy at best and downright ugly at worst. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

When do teachers have time to volunteer?

Eagle Ridge Hospital overcrowded Shortly after midnight on April 16th, I took my wife to Eagle Ridge Hospital suffering from intense abdominal pain. After passing through three stations of information gathering, she was admitted and sent for a CT scan. Following the exam, she was sent to the RAZ station, which was explained as the rapid assessment zone. She was finally given the results, explaining a gall bladder was the problem. It was far less than a rapid response. She remained in the zone until the following morning while getting intravenous care, then she, with five others, was sent to a location near the front entry in the hallway. They remained there, awaiting further treatment. They were there in full view of the public, who were on their way to the elevators. When I asked when my wife would be sent to a room, I was told the hospital was overcrowded and that would be unlikely, since even the staff dining rooms were being used as wards. She subsequently had to have surgery, and was sent to a room. Our concern was the apparent overcrowding and the stress the staff was under. We continue to read about the same problem in other hospitals and, with the reported billions spent on health care, one can’t help but wonder where the money is spent. We understand that Port Moody has grown, but where is the planning for the hospital to grow with the population? It seems there is lots of administration, but not much appears to be trickling down to the people who need care and the people who supply that essential care. Ron Nessel Pitt Meadows

Re: “Hats off to teachers,” letter to the editor, Wednesday, April 25. Thank you for reminding me why I have been so dead tired and depressed these past weeks. This morning I arrived at work early to finish preparing a great art lesson for my students and their primary buddies, whom they love to work with. I tidied up the boiler room area around the kiln to be ready for art products at the end of the day, debriefed with my student’s aide about yesterday’s social-play session, then met with a colleague to share and discuss the handson activities I used in my simple machines unit. To The At coffee break (a.k.a recess) I helped a student work on his science project, met with two students to go over their plan for improving their interactions on the playground and helped a student “fix his mistake” by supervising his washing graffiti off the hall wall. At lunch the science project student finished in time for me to get to the lunchroom, where I met with the music teacher to get an update on student progress. After three bites of my lunch, I was called to deal with a student’s medical emergency, which took until the end of lunch break. After 3 p.m., I helped two students organize their homework, met with the parents of the student injured at lunch, finished preparing Monday’s engaging lessons for my students and taught a colleague how to load the kiln. I ate my lunch in the car on the way home. I’m sorry. I guess I don’t care for kids as much as Larry Moro or Kyle Williams. I just don’t seem to have the time to do all of the

Transit cops not needed Re: “Don’t target the Transit Police,” letter to the editor, Friday, April 27. Ms. Ford’s annoyance and frustration are understandable. As someone with a greatgrandfather that had been a constable, a great-uncle and a father that were police detectives, I sympathize with her. However, one should not let Editor feelings cloud common sense. The fact is the majority of transit systems that have been used in many cities on several continents, systems that were bigger than our puny transit system, do not rely on transit police officers to patrol their systems. In some cities the local police force checks stations at random as part of their neighbourhood beat. In many other cities regular transit staff check both stations and fares. In cities with a smaller population than Metro Vancouver, as well as in metropolitan areas with a much bigger population, there is a single police force for the whole area. Rural areas and small towns are policed by a countrywide police force. It is definitely not the fault of individual police officers in Metro Vancouver if we have such a complicated system of jurisdictions that reminds one of 19th-century inefficiencies and turf wars. It is also not the fault of the TransLink police force either if they have been told, one

assumes, to only check fares outside rush hours, only once in a while on the articulated buses and never on regular buses. This is further proof that the TransLink board and the Minister of Transportation have never used transit systems in other jurisdictions to see how their systems work. I would strongly disagree with Ms. Ford that turnstiles will prevent criminals from moving freely between municipalities. Common sense (besides listening for years to my police relatives and their friends) tells me that true criminals (drug pushers? armed gangsters?) are more likely to use cars or, if they use transit, to buy a ticket to avoid being stopped and perhaps searched. If she refers to fare evaders (a bit of overkill there?) then she is obviously not aware that systems that have had turnstiles for such a long time that they have replaced them by fare gates do have fare evaders. Lots of them too. According to the Transit for London website, in 2010 the fare evasion cost TfL almost £75m in lost revenue, including around £40m lost on London’s buses and more than £20m on the Tube network. Paris, Toronto, etc., etc. are also losing a lot of money. A few months ago I told a transit cop in Brentwood station that every time I have been to Paris and London I have seen someone either jump over a gate or push from behind a fare-paying user through the gate, thus entering for free. He laughed and told me that he saw that too, the very first time he took the Tube during a vacation in London. Buses appear to be where most of the fare evasions everywhere occur, and this is where we need fare inspectors, but not necessarily police officers. Mr. J-L Brussac Coquitlam

The potential shift is permitted within the zoning regulations already set for the land, though Polygon is looking to amend its development agreement with the city. Because the zoning is already in place, there is no legislative need for a public hearing. That said, residents can voice their opinions on the matter at the next public hearing, which is scheduled for Monday, May 28. As part of Polygon’s request to change the development agreement, the developer is looking to increase the number of permitted units to 1,575 from 1,450. To date,

the townhouse portion of the neighbourhood has been constructed, along with three of the eight four-storey apartment buildings and one rental apartment building. All told, 698 of the units built or approved to be built to date have been completed.

Coquitlam goes online John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com It’s being billed as a one-stop shop for all of your municipal bills, and once it comes online, it will be the first of its kind in B.C. Coquitlam council was briefed on a new payment initiative Monday called MyCoquitlam, a system that will allow residents to pay for utility bills, dog licences and property taxes online. “In terms of utility bills … we are the first city in B.C. to offer e-billing for utility bills,” said Garry Jackson, the city’s manager of revenue services. “For taxes, we will probably be one of three. Eventually everybody will get there, but we are ahead of them.” Slated to be up and running later this month, the online database will first see users create an account, which will be validated by

the city. Once those validation e-mails are returned to residents, their accounts will be activated. Other features of the system include the ability to track billing and payment history, account balances and property assessments. Residents will also be able to claim homeowner grants online, and receipts will be issued for each transaction. “It’s going to give a centralized view to the public of their tax, utility and dog accounts,” said James Andrusiw, the city’s manager of application services. The site will be designed to set up and accept preauthorized payments as well, though only utility bills will be payable via debit or credit card transactions. Due to high processing fees, the city will not accept credit card payments for property taxes, though debit payment options will be available. twitter.com/johnkurucz

Port Moody wants input Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

Port Moody residents will have the chance to get up close and personal with a pair of major projects in the city in the next week. The first meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 7 is a public-input session on the topic of Evergreen Line stations in Port Moody. The city is updating its official community plan to

reflect the construction of two rapid transit stations along the line, and residents are invited to share their visions for future development in the city, particularly around the two stations. The session runs from 6 to 9 p.m. in the City Hall galleria. Then, on Monday, May 14, the city will host an open house on the new Inlet Centre Fire Hall. The open house will include displays of images and plans, along with a timeline of events and major goals.

After reviewing the material, residents will be urged to ask questions and give feedback to staff and members of the design team. The open house runs from 4 to 7 p.m. in the City Hall galleria. Located at the corner of Ioco Road and Newport Drive, the new fire hall will meet LEED silver standard criteria. The 19,800-square-foot building will also include a glass display of an antique fire truck at the front of the hall, according to the city.

Remember the Food Bank campaign now on Port Coquitlam student personifies spirit of giving SHARE relies on to survive

nyone who has ever needed a helping hand just to put food on the table knows the struggle takes no holidays. No one might understand this better than Liz Varcoe and her daughter, Cheyenne Crant. A few years back, Varcoe was unable to work due to a work-related injury. Shortly after, her family struggled to keep up, and needed to turn to the SHARE food bank just to get by. The charity was there to lend a hand and, after a few months, Varcoe got back on her feet and her family no longer needed to use the food bank. But the experience was not lost on Cheyenne. The Kwayhquitlum Middle School student wanted to give back in some way. So two years ago, the now 12-yearold Port Coquitlam student organized Halloween For Hunger through her school. Instead of asking for candy, the students asked for non-perishable food. In 2010, Cheyenne helped raise nearly 1,000 pounds of food for SHARE, and last Halloween the effort raised more than 2,300 pounds of food for the organization. Last year, more than 8,600 TriCities residents received food hampers, including more than 4,000 children. SHARE estimates 47 per cent of its clients are children. It was a startling number that con-

tinues to spur Cheyenne into action to help the food bank. “I knew that lots of families and more children were using it, and it made me sad so I wanted to help out,” she said, adding that without the food bank, a lot people would be going hungry. “As I got older, I understood more what the food bank was — I thought it was just free food.” As SHARE launches its Remember the Food Bank annual food drive this month, both mom and daughter want to get the word out to TriCities residents. Cheyenne suggested people often think about donating at Thanksgiving or Christmastime, but often forget about the problem as the year goes on. “They [the food bank] need help all year, not just certain parts,” she said. “It’s one thing to think about something. It’s another thing to do it.” And Mom couldn’t be more proud of her daughter. Varcoe said she’s always tried to encourage her daughter in whatever way she wants to help. Though some kids might tend to look away when it comes to really digging in and helping others, she said that’s never been the case for Cheyenne. “Cheyenne’s always taken it to heart and really wanted to be out there to be the best young person she could be and help other young people who are less fortunate,” Varcoe said. As long as there is a need, Cheyenne said she will continue to help the food bank so no one in the community goes hungry.

The SHARE Family & Community Services Society is launching its Remember the Food Bank campaign. It’s an opportunity for residents to help the charity that provided more than 8,600 hampers in 2010-11. Donations of food are being accepted at the SHARE food bank at 2615 Clarke St. in Port Moody, or at any local grocery store with a food bank donation box in the Tri-Cities. Donations can also be dropped off at the Coquitlam Express Hockey

Club head office, at 640 Poirier St., weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Food donations can also be dropped off at SHARE’s food bank Monday from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Tuesday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. To donate money, visit donatetoshare.ca and choose the Food Bank or Tiny Bundles, call 604-5409161 or mail a cheque to 200-25 King Edward St., Coquitlam, B.C., V3K 4S8. Address cheques to SHARE Society.

This is a great time to plant most anything

“We have moved into B.C. from the East Coast, Newfoundland into a very small townhouse with a little area in front of our dining room window. “I would like to plant two gardenias and a rose bush there and some low colourful bushes in front to outline the bed itself. “Would they grow well together and is now a good time to plant them? Also, can you plant cuttings from an outside rose bush? If watered regularly would they take root and grow?” Beverly Warford Ladner

Y

es, Beverley, this is a good time to plant most things. A rose bush would be quite rugged and would fit well into your garden bed, but

the hardiness of gardenias may be unpredictable here. The Kleims hardy gardenia is said to have survived down to about 18F (10C). The summer snow gardenia is said to be Zone 6 hardy (Ladner is somewhat warmer than that, probably Zone 7b). But every few years we have had a brutal winter here in B.C. where borderline-butusually-hardy plants have perished. So they can be a gamble. A long-flowering perennial to outline your bed might include the ornamental sage purple rain, or the white or pink-flowered musk mallow. Try Malva moschata, or perhaps the filagree-leaf Coreopsis verticillata, which has bright-yellow or pale-yellow flowers over a long period. This coreopsis is droughtresistant.

Celebrate compost The City of Coquitlam will host a free “compost tea party” to celebrate International Compost Awareness Week, from 7 to 9 p.m. tomorrow (Thursday, May 10) at the Inspiration Garden at Town Centre Park. Registration is not required. Kelly Koome from Green Earth Landscaping will discuss backyard composting and the magic of compost tea (bring a jar along to take some home), from 7 to 7:30 p.m.; Al Pasternak will discuss Bokashi composting from 7:45 to 8:15 p.m.; and Dan Mikolay will discuss worm composting from 8:30 to 9 p.m.

Join in Port Coquitlam’s 89th May Day Festival this weekend A tradition dating back to 1923 returns next week as the City of Port Coquitlam kicks off its annual May Day Festival. May Pole dancing, a parade through downtown Port Coquitlam, guided walks, a carnival, Youth Week events and more are planned for the 2012 celebration from May 4 to 13. Most events are free. “Port Coquitlam is a city that’s looking forward, but we still embrace the traditions – like May Day – that

made us the community we are today,”Mayor Greg Moore said. “This festival is a great opportunity for our residents to experience that PoCo Pride and connect with their community.” May day’s roots go back centuries. In ancient times May was a time of outdoor celebration, and May Day was celebrated by the Romans with flower-decked parades in honour of Flora, their goddess of flowers. In England, village youth

would collect flowering boughs to decorate hawthorne trees — the predecessors to the May Pole. Port Coquitlam first celebrated May Day as a community in 1923, with May Pole dancing and the crowning of a May Queen. While the festival has evolved and grown over the years, it has maintained many of its original traditions, including May Pole dancing and the crowning of local children as May Day“royalty” — a May Queen and Ambassador

along with a Royal Party. A full weekend of activities on May 12 and 13, including the annual Rotary May Day Parade and community festival at Leigh Square on May 12, and an all-day Mother’s Day event at Lion’s Park on May 13. A detailed schedule is available at www.portcoquitlam.ca/mayday. All events are free unless indicated. PoCo Rec Complex refers to Port Coquitlam Recreation Complex.

Canadians are living longer and costs for the Old Age Security (OAS) are rising. On April 1, 2023 the Government of Canada plans to start raising the age of eligibility for OAS and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) from 65 to 67.*

What does this mean for you? 54 or older as of March 31, 2012

You may still obtain OAS/GIS at age 65

53 or younger as of March 31, 2012

The age of eligibility for OAS/GIS will change gradually between 2023 and 2029

Starting in July 2013, Canadians who are eligible for, but not yet receiving OAS will have the flexibility to delay receiving it in exchange for a higher monthly amount at a later date.

Protect devices, police warn T

ransit Police are reminding bus, SkyTrain and other transit users that along with the excitement of owning a new device, such as a smartphone or tablet, comes the potential of theft. They offer these tips to avoid theft, and to stay safe if it does occur: • Be aware of your surroundings — don’t make yourself a target by exposing your smartphone near an easy exit point like the doors, either on the train or the platform. • If someone asks to use your phone, offer to make the call for them. • Never leave your phone unattended — keep it securely stored • Keep a record of your device’s numbers in a safe place at home (record the phone serial number, the International Mobile Equipment Identity number and the SIM card serial number). • Don’t store personal information (financial, passwords, etc.) on your phone. • It is just a phone or a tablet — if you are confronted or threatened, hand it over. If your phone is lost or stolen, you should report it to the police and your cellphone service provider immediately. If the theft has just occurred, call 911. Lost or stolen phones should be reported to the non-emergency police number or Transit Police at 604-515-8300. find us on

VETERINARIAN CANINE HEARTWORM DISEASE

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in dogs and is caused by a worm called Dirofilaria immititis. The disease is not spread directly from dog to dog. An intermediate host, the MOSQUITO, is required for transmission. When a mosquito bites an infected dog it ingests microfilariae (young heartworms) during its blood meal. These microfilariae develop further for 10 to 30 days in the mosquito and enter the mouth parts which can be deposited when she takes another blood meal from a dog. D r. N e n a d K a r l i , Young worms take up to seven months to mature following establishment of DVM & Assoc. the infection in a dog and therefore it takes a number of years before dogs show outward signs of infection. Consequently, the disease is diagnosed mostly in four to eight year old dogs. Adult worms cause disease by clogging the heart and major blood vessels leading from the heart. By clogging the main vessels, the blood supply to other organs of the body is reduced, particularly the lungs, liver and kidneys, leading to malfunction of these organs. The most obvious clinical signs include a soft, dry, chronic cough, shortness of breath, weakness, nervousness, listlessness, and loss of stamina. In advanced cases, congestive heart failure may be apparent and the abdomen and legs will swell from fluid accumulation. There may also be evidence of weight loss, poor condition, and anemia. Severely infected dogs may die suddenly during exercise or excitement. In most cases, diagnosis of heartworm disease can be made by a blood test that can be run in the veterinary hospital or by a veterinary laboratory. Treatment is successful in more than 95% of positive heartworm cases. However prevention is the best treatment, so please visit your Veterinarian for a blood test, and if negative for heartworm there are some very safe and very effective preventive products available.

REAL ESTATE

Dear Shirley, What is included in a home inspection? A home inspection is not an appraisal or an evaluation of the purchase price. It is not an inspector’s job to keep current with property values. What an inspector does is thoroughly examine the property from top to bottom, including heating and air conditioning, plumbing and electrical systems, roof, walls, ceilings, floor, windows, doors, insulation, foundation and basement. Older homes will be examined for led paint, asbestos, UFFI and aluminum wiring. Even termites where necessary. You may also want to ask for a check on radon gas. A home inspection will take about three hours, and joining the inspector for the process should be worthwhile. You will have a chance to see problems firsthand, learn in detail about your new home, and get maintenance advice. Regardless of whether you attend the inspection you will get a written summary of what was done along with a list of defects, and cost estimates for getting them fixed. Just because a home is new does not mean it is flawless. For a new home, the builders insurance does cover the cost of fixing defects, but the nuisance and disruption can be avoided by getting them seen to before you move in, which is the main point of having an inspection. If you have any question or concerns, please email me at shirleybrown@ shaw.ca. The more informed you are, the happier you’ll be with your purchase.

Preventing further loss: If you are involved in a collision, you are responsible for protecting your car from further loss or damage. In most cases, your insurance company should pay for this if you have purchased collision or all perils coverage. It can be very stressful and confusing to be in an accident. There is a lot of information that you should note at the time. To help you, the Insurance Bureau of Canada has developed an accident report form which can be accessed thru the new Mardon Insurance website. Keep a copy of it in your glove box so you won’t have to worry about remembering what to write down.

Q: What footwear would be recommended for diabetic foot? A: Footwear and orthotics play an important role in diabetic footcare. Orthotics designed with Plastazote“ foam, the #1 material for protecting the insensitive diabetic foot, are usually recommended. Plastazote is a material designed to accommodate pressure “hot spots” by conforming to heat and pressure. By customizing to the foot, Plastazote provides the comfort and protection needed in diabetic footcare. Footwear constructed with Plastazote is also recommended frequently for the diabetic patient. Diabetic Footwear should also provide the following protective benefits: • High, wide toe box (high and wide space in the toe area) • Removable insoles for fitting flexibility and the option to insert orthotics if necessary. • Rocker Soles.– These soles are designed to reduce pressure in the areas of the foot most susceptible to pain, most notably the ball-of-the-foot. • Firm Heel Counters for support and stability. If you are a diabetic, you should be particularly alert to any problems you may be having with your feet. It is very important for diabetics with neuropathy to take necessary precautions to prevent injury and keep their feet healthy. If you have diabetes and are experiencing a foot problem, immediately consult with your foot doctor.

PoCo offers emergency preparedness training

E

mergency Preparedness Week started on Sunday, and the City of Port Coquitlam is encouraging residents who want to get prepared for a disaster to look to the city for help. City services may not be available for at least 72 hours after a major emergency such as an earthquake, flood or severe storm, according to a press release. Port Coquitlam’s emergency preparedness (EP) program has trained city staff and volunteers to assist the community in the aftermath of a disaster, and also offers a series of free one-day courses throughout the year to help residents prepare. The city’s emergency preparedness program is now headed by Tara Stroup, who comes to Port Coquitlam with a long history of civic service and emergency preparedness experience. Stroup was the former emergency preparedness officer in the City of

Port Moody, and previously worked for the municipalities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. Personal preparedness is a key component of PoCo’s emergency preparedness program — the more residents can take care of themselves in the days immediately following a disaster, the more the city can focus on restoring services. In 2012, the city changed the format for its free emergency preparedness courses to provide information on four different emergency preparedness topics in a single Saturday session: personal preparedness, rapid damage assessment, basic fire suppression, and light urban search and rescue (see below for details). Registration is now being accepted for courses on May 26, Sept. 22 and Nov. 24. All courses are held Saturdays, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at No. 1 Fire Hall, 1725

Broadway St., and include refreshments. Early registration is recommended as seating is limited. Participants must be at least 16, and priority will be given to Port Coquitlam residents. The sessions include hands-on components, so comfortable clothing is recommended. More information about the courses is available at www. portcoquitlam.ca/ep.

To register, call 604-9275466. Emergency preparedness tips and information — including a list of items to include in kits for your home, car and office — can be found at www.portcoquitlam.ca/ep. One-day emergency preparedness training covers: • Personal preparedness — Help yourself, your family, your coworkers and your neighbours in those first 72 hours and beyond.

• Basic fire suppression — Learn basic fire chemistry and classes of fire, how to use a fire extinguisher, and basic steps for fire response and intervention in the event of water, gas and electrical problems. Includes hands-on extinguisher training. • Rapid damage assessment — Identify unsafe conditions in a single-family dwelling to help determine if your home is safe to occupy after

an earthquake. Information is provided as general building/safety information; it does not certify you to be qualified to perform post-earthquake damage assessment. • Light urban search and rescue — If someone is trapped in a home during a disaster, do you know how to identify if and how you can help? Learn what to do. Includes a hands-on component.

Build your own disaster kit H

ere is what you need in a basic home emergency kit, according to the province, which is reminding families how to prepare for a disaster during Emergency Preparedness Week: • Water — two litres of water per person per day (include small bottles that can be carried easily in case of an evacuation order). • Food — canned food, energy bars and dried foods that will not spoil (remember to replace the food and water once a year). • Manual can opener. • Flashlight and batteries. • Battery powered or wind-up radio (and extra batteries). • First aid kit. • Special needs items — prescription medications, infant formula or equipment for people with disabilities. • Extra keys for your car and house. • Cash — include smaller bills, such as $10 bills (travellers’ cheques are also useful) and change for pay phones. • Emergency plan — include a copy of it and ensure it contains in-town and out-of-town contact information. • A copy of important documents — birth certificate, passport, BC CareCard, insurance, photos of family members. • Pet food. The following are recommended items: • A change of clothing and footwear for each household member. • Sleeping bag or warm (foil) blanket for each household member. • A whistle (in case you need to attract attention). • Garbage bags for personal sanitation. • Toilet paper and other personal care supplies. • Safety gloves. • Basic tools (hammer, pliers, wrench, screwdrivers, fasteners, work gloves). • Small fuel-driven stove and fuel (follow manufacturer’s directions and store properly). • Two additional litres of water per person per day for cooking and cleaning. In addition to the above home kit, it’s also important to have a “grab and go kit” that is light and portable in case you have to leave your home with little or no notice. Suggested items for this kit can be found here www.pep. bc.ca/hazard_preparedness/personal_preparedness.html. Disaster preparedness kits can be purchased from the Canadian Red Cross by going to their website at www.redcross. ca.

Here are some myths and facts about meningitis: Myth: There is only one type of meningitis. Fact: Meningitis can be caused by different germs, including viral, bacterial and fungal. A viral infection is

less severe and can typically be treated at home. Bacterial meningitis occurs when bacteria enters the blood and migrates to the spinal area. Given the rapid progression and severity of meningitis, medical attention should be sought immediately if someone suspects meningitis. Myth: Meningitis is easy to diagnose. Fact: Because early symptoms are very similar to symptoms of other illnesses,

especially the flu, cases of meningitis can be overlooked and misdiagnosed initially. It’s important at the onset of symptoms to seek immediate treatment. Early symptoms of meningitis are similar to flu symptoms, including fever, headache, stiff neck and vomiting.

Library focuses on kids paperbacks Kids can find their favourite series quickly and easily with the Port Moody Public Library’s new paperback series collection. From Geronimo Stilton to the Rainbow Magic Fairies, all of the library’s most popular paperback series titles are now together in one central location. Previously, popular children’s series books were mixed in with the library’s general paperback titles. Many younger readers found it difficult to pick out their favourite series books, and had trouble locating the titles they were most interested in, according to a press release from the library. The new paperback series collection is designed to help these readers easily locate the books they want, and introduce them to similar titles. Series books are wildly popular with readers of all ages. Many adults will remember reading through the entire Sweet Valley High or Hardy Boys series in their youth. Today’s kids are no different: they love following the adventures of their favourite characters through madcap series adventures. For reluctant readers, series books provide a powerful way to engage the interest of kids who are challenged by standalone novels. The predictable plots and recurring characters in series books give children a chance to increase fluency, understand narrative structure, and build confidence in their identity as a reader. Although library staff believe all kids will enjoy browsing the new paperback series collection, tentative readers will benefit the most from this change. Come in to the library and browse this new, incredibly popular collection. Check out some bestsellers (Captain Underpants, anyone?) or introduce your kids to some of your childhood favourites (Nancy Drew is waiting!). As always, you can request expert help in finding the perfect book from the library’s children’s librarians. For more information, visit the library’s website at www. library.portmoody.ca or phone 604-469-4577. The library is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays. It’s located at 100 Newport Dr. find us on

Check out Unwined this Saturday for a special treat O n Saturday, May 12, Coquitlam Centre will host its spring Unwined — Sip, Savour & Mingle event, which raises funds for the Douglas College and Coquitlam foundations. This is an excellent chance for Tri-Cities residents to sample new releases of wines, craft beers and coolers while enjoying delicious eats from local restaurants that will be on hand to provide samples of some of their favourite menu items. New for this year is an interesting wine-and-chocolate theme. I will be assisting the head chocolatier from Purdy’s Chocolates, Gary Mitchell, to match some of the selections to chocolate creations supplied by Purdy’s. Beverages available at the tasting that are the perfect match for chocolate include:

Framboise fruit wine from Elephant Island, Don Simon Sangria, Wild Goose Autumn Gold and Character Red — a full-bodied and bold tasting wine from Hester Creek. Come out to the event and enjoy our selections. I have put together a list of my favourites that you should not miss as you wander through the various beverage stations. One station will be pouring an impressive array of Italian wines. Look for Fabiano Valpolicella and Santa Maria Le Palma Cannonau, an unusual grape variety that is distinctly Italian. There are some top-rated wines from the Okanagan and Similkameen valleys, including a Bordeaux-style blended wine from Noble Ridge, a stellar Pinot Noir from Poplar Breeze, and the highly rated Cabernet Franc

Organizers says it’s “a refreshing way to connect with nature and gain fitness within the safety of a happy bunch of friendly, like-minded folks who love to explore scenic park trails.” Comprehensive mapbooks will be provided for a nominal charge and group walks are held rain or shine. Mudthudders meet at 10:30 a.m. Saturdays near the trailhead at the foot of Regan Avenue, adjacent to Hillcrest Middle School. For more information, contact mundymudthudders@yahoo. ca.

Score Card

Saints stop T-men for second win If the first week was any indication, the Port Coquitlam Saints may just be ready for prime time. The B.C. Junior A lacrosse team, which won a total of six games over the past two years, picked up its second win in its third game on Sunday, slipping past the Nanaimo Timbermen 8-7 on the Island. Garrett Chan scored three times and Nash Harrison pocketed a pair — including the eventual winner — to lift PoCo past the hometown T-men. Nanaimo led early in the first and second periods, but the Saints rallied both times to hold the lead after each period. That they found themselves trailing quickly in the first and second frames wasn’t something to be too concerned about, head coach Nick Delmonico said. “It was just another one of those tough games,” said Delmonico. “The difference for us was we tightened down on defence. We had the lead on them a number of times but just couldn’t make it bigger.” Harrison’s second goal, midway through the third, proved to be the difference. The win put PoCo in a temporary three-way tie for third place. Their next test comes Thursday in Langley. • A three-goal deficit could be cause for concern — unless you’re the Coquitlam Adanacs. The B.C. junior A lacrosse squad surrendered the first three goals in Victoria on Saturday, but charged back to knock off the junior Shamrocks 10-7. Shorthanded goals by Challen Rogers and Cole Shafer proved key as Coquitlam remained perfect at 3-0. The visitors outscored Victoria 5-2 in the middle frame and picked up steam as the game wore on. “[Victoria] came out really hard in the first period and played quite well,” noted Coquitlam coach Neil Dinsdale. “I think they caught some of our players a little by surprise, but I was very pleased with how we reacted after that.” Matthew Dinsdale racked up a hat trick and two assists  CONT.

Putting the ball in play during a recent home game, Coquitlam’s Darren Honeysett, right, enjoyed a strong weekend at the plate. In the Coquitlam Reds’ 11-4 win over the first-place Nanaimo Pirates on Sunday, the middle infielder went 4-for-4 with two runs batted in.

Reds rebound to earn weekend split Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com On both days, the Coquitlam Reds were blanked in the first game. On both days, they bounced back admirably. The B.C. Premier Baseball League club earned a split in a weekend doubleheader series with the Parksville Royals and first-place Nanaimo Pirates. Outscored 12-0 in the opening series matchups, Coquitlam turned the tables a tad and topped both nightcaps by a combined 14-6. On Saturday against Parksville, the Reds fell 4-0 and took Game 2 3-2. A day later, they were outclassed 8-0 by league-leading Nanaimo in the opener but blasted back with an 11-4 win in the nightcap. With a few injuries testing his bench strength, Reds manager Kyle Williams was generally pleased with the results. “Going in to the weekend I was looking for a split and that’s what we got,” said Williams. “With Nanaimo being in first (overall) we knew it would be tough but we put up 11 runs, so that’s a good showing.” That 11-4 win, which saw lead-off hitter Darren

Honeysett go 4-for-4 and drive in two runs, provided some feel-good moments for the struggling squad. Injuries to centerfielder Max Hollingworth, catcher/ first baseman Brian Nicholas and pitcher Jeff Heidema has taxed the club during the past two weeks. Without those key players — Heidema has played in the field but has been unable to pitch — the squad has slipped to 8-9 after starting the premier season at 4-1. Saturday’s series with Parksville got off to a good start, as rookie Mark Trimble and Royals’ Clayton Isherwood — one of the top pitchers in the 13-team loop — locked horns in a pitchers duel. Parksville scored all its runs in the fifth inning on three singles, two walks and two batters hit-by-pitch. Trimble surrendered just five hits on the day, walked three and fanned four. Isherwood reduced his leaguebest earned run average to 0.34, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out 11 Reds batters. In the second game, Coquitlam erased an early deficit with three runs in the bottom of the second inning en route to a 3-2 victory. Honeysett’s RBI triple plated what proved to be the winning run. Righthander Curtis Taylor collected the win, tossing seven innings of four-hit ball, while fanning five. In the seventh, the junior-aged thrower struck out the

first two Royals and induced the last batter to ground out for his team-leading third win of the season. Honeysett and Willie Davis both finished 2-for-3, while Luan Dang drove in the other run. Against first-place Nanaimo, the Reds fell 8-0 in the opener, as winning pitcher Justin Clarkson held the home club to just four hits. Brett Snowball started for Coquitlam and didn’t make it out of the fourth inning, surrendering seven earned runs. With the score 3-0 entering the fourth inning, the Pirates broke it open on Brady Rogers three-run home run. The resilient Reds responded by scoring two in the first and one in the second of the final game to take a 3-0 lead. Nanaimo notched a pair in the third but the home squad answered back by putting up five runs in the fourth, as Javeed Khankashi, with two, Mitchell Jackman and Honeysett banged out RBI singles. Brandon Becking went the distance, holding the Pirates to just four hits as they handed the visitors just their third loss of the season. Jackman, who leads the Reds with 11 RBI on the year, went 3-for-4 with four RBI to bump up his batting average to a team-best .333.

Bandits, Thunder chart similar starts

The Tri-City Bandits and Port Moody Thunder launched the new West Coast Senior B lacrosse season with similar verve. The two rivals unleashed some potent offence en route to twin season opening wins. The defending WCSL champion Bandits blitzed the North Shore Indians 16-3 at the PoCo Rec Centre on Saturday, while cross-town rival Thunder — a new club on the old circuit — knocked off the Nanaimo Timbermen by an 18-8 margin. Tri-City’s win was sparked by hat tricks from Jarett Dorman and Charlie Girdler, as the Bandits delivered midseason form at both ends of the floor. Netminder Graig McFeeters turned back 25 shots to pick up the victory, while Kevin Miotto, Ryan Mosdell and newcomer Jarett Neigum finished with two tallies apiece. Andrew Murphy also scored, while Girdler netted four assists. Leading the charge with an eye on earning a fifth-straight provincial title are Bandits captain Darren McEwen, Justin Hawksbee, Steve Rickerby, Kiefer Flynn and goalie Chad Miller. Port Moody completely dominated the T-men in their inaugural senior B effort on Thursday. Tom Seeman set the tone with six goals and an assist, teammate Joel Tickner chipped in five goals and two helpers, and Greg Merth tallied three times. Cashing in twice was senior C call-up Justin Thomas. Making 26 saves in the Thunder’s win was Sheldon Wallace. The two teams square off May 12 for an early read on local bragging rights. Action begins at 8 p.m. at the PoCo Rec Centre.

The Vancouver Whitecaps women’s soccer team returns to Coquitlam’s Percy Perry Stadium for a pair of W-League tests this year. They host the Seattle Sounders on May 27, and LA Strikers on June 13.

Local talents flows to women’s Whitecaps

There will be plenty of local flavour on the Vancouver Whitecaps FC women’s team this year. The club announced last week that a trio of Canadian national team members, including Coquitlam’s Brittany Timko, have signed up for a portion of the 2012 United Soccer League’s W-League season. Timko, 26, returns for her fifth season in Vancouver after a five-year absence. In 26 appearances, the midfielder has posted four goals and five assists while playing on two WLeague championship squads. Her championship experience has also included international professional tours, where she helped German club SG Essen-Schonebeck win its league crown in 2010, and Swedish club Pitea IF in 2009. She was also a member of Australian club Melbourne

Victory, which won its league title in 2008-09. One of only nine women to make 100 or more appearances for Canadian women’s national team, Timko was with the national squad that earned Canada its birth to the 2012 Olympics. Timko is joined by fellow national team members Melanie Booth and Kaylyn Kyle for the 2012 season. “We’re ecstatic to add players the quality of Melanie, Kaylyn and Brittany,” said Jesse Symons, Whitecaps FC women’s head coach. “Not only do they add an incredible amount of technical skill and ability to our side, but also a ton of experience and leadership that will greatly benefit our younger players.” Vancouver earlier announced the return of PoCo defender Erin Uchacz for a third W-League season.

Uchacz, 20, played for the under-20 Canadian national side in the lead up to the 2012 CONCACAF Women’s U-20 championship. A product of Coquitlam Metro-Ford, Uchacz is entering her third year at Oregon State University, where she attends on a soccer scholarship. She also played for the under-18 prospects Whitecaps squad that won the Pacific Coast premier women’s regular season title in 2010. Other local products inked for the upcoming season are midfielder Jaclyn Sawicki of Coquitlam and forward Paige Adams of Port Coquitlam. Vancouver launches the W-League season on May 13 in Victoria, and holds its official home opener May 18 in Langley. The club will play a pair of games at Coquitlam’s Percy Perry Stadium — May 27 versus the Seattle Sounders, and June 13 against

the LA Strikers. Both games are hosted by Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer Club.

“I’m fairly happy with how things are going, when you consider who we’re missing,” noted Williams. “The bats have been our biggest issue, they just haven’t been consistent enough.” The two bats that have put together the hottest stretches recently belong to Honeysett and Jackman. “(Honeysett) has been great. He’s made the adjustments after a 3-for-20 start and just had some smart at bats… I’m really pleased with Jackman. He’s really carried the team offensively.” The squad will host Abbotsford on Thursday, 6:30 p.m. at Mundy Park. The Victoria Mariners pay a visit on Saturday for a pair of games, starting at 1 p.m. at Mundy Park.

Obituaries

Van LEEUWEN, Elsie May Violet (nee Winter)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Elsie May Violet on May 4, 2012. Elsie is survived by her family; children Leonard (Laurie), Barry (Katherine), Anne (Dave), Deanna; 7 grandchildren Megan, Chelsea, Adam, Lauren, Kara, Kevin, Talia; 3 nieces Catherine (Ray), Helen, Margaret (Dean), and their children Fraser, Mitchell, Grant, and Nicole. Elsie was born in New Westminster B.C. May 11, 1926. She lived her entire life on the same street in Coquitlam. Some of her favourite memories of her childhood pioneer days included spending time with her father, mother, and two dear brothers Benny and Eddie, hiking to Rocky Point or Como Lake for a swim and enjoying the lifelong friendships she made while attending Mountain View School. She met her future husband Wim at a dance in New Westminster and was married in 1952. They were blessed with four children over the next 10 years and enjoyed raising their family with annual trips to Puntzi Lake and White Rock. Elsie was very saddened by the loss of her two brothers Benny who was lost in the war, and Eddie who passed away at the age of 53 shortly after the death of his wife Beverly, leaving behind 3 daughters who Elsie came to love as her own. As the years passed under her everloving guidance and care the family continued to flourish and grow. Sons and daughters in law were added along with numerous dearly loved grandchildren. Elsie’s love of family and friends was evident in her actions, ensuring that all holidays and birthdays were celebrated. Her home was a constant hub of activity with family and friends always welcome to enjoy her abundant hospitality, sound advice, and her vividly remembered stories. Elsie survived various health challenges over the years but always kept a positive attitude through her strong will to live. Her final days were spent in her home surrounded by family with her cherished cat Rascal by her side. She will be fondly remembered at a celebration of her life on what would have been her 86th birthday May 11, 2012 at 10:00AM at the Burquitlam Funeral Home, 625 North Road, Coquitlam. In lieu of flowers donations to the Canadian Cancer Society of BC in her memory would be appreciated. Family Owned
