Pedophile dies in prison In what is likely considered the darkest chapter in Port Moody’s history, the man behind a horrific kidnapping 36 years ago has died. Donald Hay, 79, died Sunday at a psychiatric hospital in Saskatoon. He reportedly died of natural causes after fighting a lengthy illness at the hospital. Hay was responsible for kidnapping and raping his Port Moody neighbour Abby Drover 36 years ago. Drover was abducted by Hay on March 10, 1976, when she was a 12-year-old living a few blocks from Hay’s home, which she used to visit to play with Hay’s stepson. She was held for six months in an underground bunker located below Hay’s garage. It had a hidden trap door under a workshop cabinet. Drover was rescued Sept. 6, 1976 after Hay’s wife called for help, telling police she thought he might have killed himself in the garage, which was locked. Police kicked down the garage door but found nothing, so they left. Seconds after police drove away, Hay’s wife called police again to say she had found him down a pit. As police arrived, Hay climbed out of the cupboard with his pants around his ankles and tried to reach for a gun. Police tackled him. Hay pleaded guilty in 1977 and was eligible for parole every two years. He was denied release three times. In a National Parole Board 2006 decision to deny Hay day parole, the board said that Hay continued to minimize the effects of his offence on the victim and blamed his alcoholism on the crime. He waived his parole hearing in 2008. — with files from The Vancouver Sun and The Province

Federal dollars, and how cities across Canada will be able to access them for costly infrastructure projects, was front and centre at this year’s Federation of Canadian Municipalities conference. Every year, representatives from Canada’s local governments meet to set priorities for what to lobby the federal government for. This year’s event in Saskatoon wrapped on Monday. Greg Moore, Port Coquitlam mayor and Metro Vancouver board chair, said water delivery, sewers, recreation facilities, transit, roads and other “big ticket” infrastructure items are aging across the country and the feds need to be ready to step in. “We’ve got some really big capital items that need to be built in the next few years. We need to be working with the federal government to ensure that cities are getting funding from the provincial and federal government on these major projects,” he said. In recent years, the federal government has been kicking in one-third of the funding for most projects, as long as the province and municipality can come up with the other two-thirds. But just how that grant system will work in the future isn’t exactly clear yet. According to Moore, the feds have committed to revising the current system of federal grants, but the details of the new system won’t emerge until sometime in 2013. Between now and then, the federal government has committed to a series of regional intergovernmental meetings across the country, which Moore and other local officials are planning to be a part of. “It’s vital for us to be a part of those discussions,” Moore said. “We’re the closest level of government to the taxpayers and we really understand what those needs are.” In the meantime, Port Coquitlam will soon be engaging in its own public consultation process to ID which unfunded capital projects are a priority for PoCo residents. Councillors representing the cities of Coquitlam and Port Moody at the FCM conference agreed that continued federal funds was a priority. Coun. Linda Reimer said she thinks Canada’s cities will find a sympathetic ear when it comes to the issue. “Infrastructure doesn’t sound very sexy but it’s actually an investment in our communities and one of the things that came out of this conference is the notion that cities as a whole make the country great,” she said. “If FCM is organized in its lobby efforts, I think it will be successful.” Also near the top of the list of grievances was the piece of the federal tax “pie” municipalities are given — currently about eight cents of every dollar. “We either need to increase that or need [to] increase the pie in general. We’re feeling the effects of downloading and that became clear at the conference,” Reimer added.  CONT. ON PAGE 5, see CRIME PREVENTION.

A JUBILEE MOMENT: The Royal Canadian Legion No. 133 marked the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebration Saturday with some special guests, “the Queen,” played by Elizabeth Howarth and “Prince Philip” (Phillip Ranger), with acting mayor Mike Forrest at right.

Port Moody leads youth movement Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com While the rest of the country is getting older, one municipality in the Tri-Cities is leading its own youth movement. Recent data from the 2011 Census shows Port Moody to be one of the youngest cities in Metro Vancouver. According to Statistics Canada, there are 2,140 children in Port Moody between birth and four years of age, 1,935 children between the ages of five and nine and another 2,030 kids between the ages of 10 and 14. The percentage of children under the age of 15 in Port Moody is 18.5 per cent, compared to 15.3 per cent for the rest of Metro Vancouver. The numbers aren’t really surprise to Andrew Barr, the director of Kinder Kampus Dayschool in Port Moody. He said in the last decade, his trio of daycares in the community has routinely had waitlists for spaces. “I think what’s swinging the Port Moody numbers, it’s not so much a general trend, it’s just they built Heritage Mountain and that’s swinging the numbers all over the place,” Barr told The NOW.

2012 VOLVO XC60

He suggested bedroom communities like Port Moody are attracting families because housing is more affordable here, than places like Vancouver. Barr noted the company expanded its daycare services to meet the surge in townhomes being built in the Parklane subdivision, which was attracting starting families with kids. Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay believes the youth movement is a sign of success for the city, but it also comes with challenges. He suggested families living in condos put pressure on the city to offer recreational opportunities that might not have been necessary in the past, when it was more common for families to live in houses with yards. Clay said the change has meant the city and the school district have had to adapt to accommodate families living in those apartments. One example of this is the push to put daycares in community centres. Clay said the city still needs to continue to tailor recreational programs to hit the right demographics. “Don’t be having classes for 16-to-18 year-olds that are sitting empty, when we’ve got a demand for toddler to six year-olds,” he said. At the same time the youth popula-

tion increases, Clay noted the number of seniors is also on the rise, adding to the challenge. The census numbers appear to back the mayor’s claim. The number of seniors over the age of 65 jumped to 3,000 in 2011 from 2,165 in 2006. The overall population in Port Moody jumped 19.9 per cent in five years to 32,975. Though Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam remained relatively young

in the last five years, the numbers are more in line with the rest of Metro Vancouver. There are more than 20,000 kids under the age of 15 living in Coquitlam, which works out to 16.4 per cent of the total population. In Port Coquitlam, there are 9,710 children under the age of 15 living in the city, or 17.4 per cent of the total population.

Anmore gets ready for green waste In less than a year, every municipality in Metro Vancouver will be required to have some type of system in place to recycle composting material, or green waste. The new rules have officials with the Village of Anmore taking notice. The municipality is working at putting a composting program together by the start of 2013, when the new regulations are set to begin. Anmore Mayor Heather Anderson said the village isn’t exactly sure what the program will ultimately look like, but is looking at successful green-waste programs next door in the Tri-Cities. Currently, all garbage and recycling in Anmore is handled by a contractor, and the mayor expected the green-waste recycling program to be administered in a similar fashion. “It’s just a matter of figuring out how to provide the service and how to do it,” Anderson told The NOW. “With the bear situation in Anmore, we have to really make sure it’s [green waste recycling] done properly and safely because we don’t want to have what happened last year when we had a couple bears killed in the our community.” She said developing the program is a big undertaking for community thee with just 10 staff at the village hall. The municipality plans on applying for a grant to hire a consultant to help put together the program in an effort to avoid fines from the district, but cost of the program has not been identified.

Price at the pumps head north Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

Jeremy Deutsch/NOW

The pain at the pump continues to be felt by Tri-Cities motorists, as gas heads towards $1.50 per litre. One marketing expert believes there is temporary relief ahead.

It’s never feels good to fill up a tank of gas at the pump these days. At one point before the end of May, some gas stations in Metro Vancouver were selling a litre of fuel for more than $1.50. Meanwhile, in the Tri-Cities, gas has remained well into the mid $1.40s. But one expert believes some of the pain at the pump might subside just in time for the summer driving season. Lindsay Meredith, a Simon Fraser University marketing expert, believes the price of gas has hit such a high level, there is no tolerance for it to go any higher, and the cost may go down in the coming months. “It’s way out of whack where it is right now,” he said, suggesting a litre of fuel could drop to the $1.30-range. Though drivers will likely take any reprieve, it’s still a higher price than other regions of the country. Meredith noted a major reason for the price difference for gas in the Lower Mainland

— tax. Included in the cost of your most recent fillup are a federal gas tax, the harmonized sales tax, a TransLink tax and the provincial carbon tax. All of those items contribute to the hefty price of gas, but Meredith suggested even without the extra tax, local drivers are still paying higher prices at the pump than other regions. The last time a litre of gas topped the $1.50mark, a barrel of crude oil was selling for $150. As of Monday, a barrel of crude was selling at an eight-month low of $82. “It looks like someone is helping themselves to a bigger spread as well,” Meredith said, of some of the oil companies. He said the government isn’t going to complain too much either since it bases taxation on price and not the volume of litres. But there is some evidence the high gas prices are changing motorists’ habits. Meredith pointed out TransLink’s most recent tax hike did not result in a net improvement of collectable taxes, indicating motorists are cutting back on the amount of driving. Instead, he said drivers are using transit and telecommuting as alternative options.

SIGNS OF PROTEST: Dozens of Tri-Cities residents turned up at Conservative MP James Moore’s constituency office Saturday, leaving their signs taped to his office. The group behind the protest, Leadnow.ca, argued the budget, or Bill C-38, makes changes to over 70 laws without adequate debate.

Crime prevention committee intrigues councillor  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

Port Moody Coun. Gerry Nuttall agreed that federal dollars for local government projects took precedence, especially for traffic mitigation in Port Moody’s case, but Nuttall was able to take away something else from the four-day meeting. Nuttall said he took particular interest in the increasingly common practice for local governments to set up crime prevention committees that

work to identify factors that lead to local crime and work to counter them. “Maybe we should be looking into having a crime prevention council made up of the city, the police, the Simon Fraser Health Unit, homelessness taskforce, the community justice society — all of these groups, and have them in a room at the same time to come with a strategy for reducing crime,” he said. “I’m going to bring that report to council.’

Port Moody Coun. Diana Dilworth said she has brought home some specific notes on Saskatoon’s impressive revitalized streetscapes — an issue that Port Moody council will soon be dealing with as the Evergreen Line construction starts changing the face of business areas. Beyond that, Dillworth said she was intrigued by Saskatoon’s record of preserving parks and waterfront land for public use, and funding both with parking revenue.

Opinion

Some noise is better than others Re: “PoCo church bells upset neighbours,“ Friday June 1. I knew this was coming. We love to hear the sound of church bells on Sunday morning. And the sound of a train whistle; and the distant barking of a dog on a cold winter night, and the howling of coyotes on the dike; and the robins in the cherry To The tree just outside our bedroom window; and the sound of chickens on a farm. We will take all this, and you may have all your Sunday mornings with the roaring lawnmowers; the weekend warriors with their muffler-less bikes; the cars that come screeching by with all their windows closed but whose deafening sound systems assault

your eardrums from two blocks away, and the rap music — often with one dumb line repeated over and over again — that can be heard all over the neighbourhood on a summer afternoon. There are times when, even with the windows closed, we can’t even enjoy our own music in our own living room. Why doesn’t anyone complain about that? No, it’ll be a long time before we Editor complain about the sound of church bells.

Our View

Coast guard cuts put lives in danger

W

ith the Fraser and Pitt rivers to the south and east, and Burrard Inlet and Indian Arm to the north and west, our community understands both the wonders and perils of life on the water. That’s why we join the many voices who see the federal government’s cuts to the B.C. Coast Guard as misguided at best, disasterous at worst. Closing Coast Guard communication centres in Vancouver, Comox and Tofino, along with the Kitsilano coast guard station, sets a course for slower and stretched services when response time is often the difference between life and death on the open waters. It means Vancouver’s busy harbour will be served by Sea Island Base in Richmond — 17 nautical miles away. And auxilary volunteers will be called to do what trained and equipped coast guards have done — and done well. It’s part of what is being billed as a national reorganization of coast guard services, but smacks more of penny-wise, pound-foolish orchestration from Ottawa. Across Canada, the number of communication centres will be nearly halved, and 700 staff face uncertain futures. These communication centres play a pivotal role in providing emergency help to mariners on B.C. waters. As of 2015, the province’s coastline will now rely upon the dispatches from communication centres in Prince Rupert and Victoria. Prime Minister Stephen Harper and local MP James Moore defended the move, stating that they’ve, in fact, bolstered marine safety. However, more experienced voices have stepped forward to say that the changes will do the exact opposite — and that the lack of consultation makes the cuts more worrisome. When it comes to safety on the water, there should be no cutting corners. Ottawa needs to listen to local voices and stop dictating from afar.

not winning it many friends in this province. Now we come to the other side of the political equation. Federal NDP leader Thomas Mulcair has made waves with his criticism of this country’s reliance on revenues from natural resource exports, which is something that is the backbone of the western provinces’ economic make-up. As I and others predicted when he won his party’s leadership, Mulcair appears to shifting his priorities away from the west and more toward winning support in central Canada. The high price of the Canadian dollar, which partly results from our natural resource riches, hurts the manufacturing base of Ontario, where Mulcair is trying to shore up support. He knows the path to power in Ottawa runs through seat-rich Ontario and Quebec, and not through the natural resource-rich western provinces, which simply don’t have enough seats in the House of Commons to match central Canada. So B.C. is getting it from both ends of the political spectrum. The Harper government has a majority, and the political reality is that it doesn’t have to listen to critics as much as in the past (at least not until closer to election time). And the federal NDP now looks east, rather than west, when it comes to shaping priorities. Add it all up and it could be a gloomy few years for B.C.’s interests in the national capital.

Column missed the issues Re: “School dispute is hurting students,” Wednesday, May 30. Dear Jameel Aziz, You are the voice of the Principals and VicePrincipals of B.C. and as such you should be a leading voice for public education in this province. You have been very vocal about the challenges for administrators due to this year’s job action. Where is your voice on the chronic underfunding of public education? Where is your voice to explain how class size [and] class composition issues affect students each and every day? Where is your voice on the need for a respectful negotiation processes rather than harsh legislation and insults? Do you really want to be “just” an administrator, someone who manages and passes down dictums from above, rather than an educational leader? “If you are neutral towards injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.” — Bishop Desmond Tutu It is not neutral to be silent in the face of government attacks on a quality public education system and on the teachers who are at the forefront of educating B.C.’s students. It is being complicit. Please lend your voice in support of the students and teachers of B.C. In schools we all work together. Your silence is making teachers into the enemy and making it easier for the government to dismantle public education. Rubi Corsi, Teacher Terry Fox Secondary

Re: My View – ‘School Dispute is Hurting Students’, Wednesday May 30 Jameel Aziz, the president of the B.C. Principals and Vice-Principals Association, attempts to weave a narrative that is not only in stark contrast to my experiences as a teacher this year, but also lacks any hint of vision for or perspective on public education. Given that Aziz is in a position of educational leadership, this is profoundly disappointing. Aziz’s method of research appears to be an informal collating of a few subjective anecdotes and observations, acknowledging no specific sources. Although he admits his “illustrations” are “not representative of all schools,” he claims they are “examples of the real challenges that many schools, students and parents have faced this year.” To The I challenge the method and validity of his claims because they are so contrary to my experience. First, Aziz speaks to how routine and communication have changed. Routine and communication have not played out “in the normal fashion.” Therefore, he surmises, that many teachers have reneged on their professional duties: meeting about students; meeting with colleagues to discuss goals and initiatives; and processing formal report cards. This is false. Teachers have sustained their professional duties. What’s more, many of us relished the opportunity to control our own reporting process, which we found liberating and more efficient. I know that many teachers made it clear to their students and their parents that any time they wanted a personal progress report, they could have it, or any time they wanted to meet and discuss progress, a meeting could be arranged. Furthermore, Aziz’s notion that we are

ruining kids’ public education experience and damaging their futures is disparaging and fallacious. For example, to make ambiguous, nonsequiturs such as “students have informed us that they have missed out on numerous scholarship opportunities as many of these applications require leadership activities to be considered” is simply distorted communication. I wrote several reference letters for my students this year, as did many of my colleagues. In most letters, I trumpeted the many leadership experiences students gained from both inside and outside the school. Many of my students received scholarships. Moreover, Aziz needs to be reminded that teachers are trained and paid to instruct and facilitate formal learning, and this is certainly a full-time job. In fact, it Editor often consumes weekend time. Clubs, sports, special school activities, etc. are extra-curricular activities that most teachers kindly support, enjoy, and volunteer for in a context that respects and supports public education. Aziz would be wise to note the irony in denigrating many teachers. Lest we forget, Aziz and his fellow managers were once teachers. Teachers who chose to leave the classroom to administer the daily business of education rather than to continue honing and using their skills to help students in the classroom.

Shovels turn sod for new middle school

about your next move?

Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com In any small town, a school is more than just a place to learn — it’s the centre of the community. That will be no exception when a new middle school in Anmore opens in two years. With the turn of a shovel Friday, construction on the new $23-million middle school on Heritage Mountain got underway. The new school will accommodate 500 students from Grades 6 to 8 and is expected to open in spring 2014. Anmore Mayor Heather Anderson called the new school the biggest project in the community in decades. She suggested not only will the school keep Anmore students in the community, but also act as a hub for the entire village. The plan is to open up the school to residents after hours as a recreational centre. “It’s a really important addition to our community,” Anderson said, noting Anmore Elementary is nearing 50 years of age and is booked solid for after-hour activities. She said the municipality had been considering building a community centre for years, but found it to be too expensive to build a standalone building. As for the school, besides being a stateof-the-art building built to LEED Gold standards, it will be the first school in B.C. with a rooftop garden.

Anmore Elementary students and future Anmore Middle school students Mera, Mika, Isaac, Matthew and Lief check out plans for the new school. The school will also feature a Neighbourhood Learning Centre, which will bring together community organizations to offer various educational and community services, and a daycare. Coquitlam Board of Education Chair Melissa Hyndes said the new school would also help alleviate some of the overcrowding felt in nearby schools in the district. Students in the community are currently bussed to Moody Middle School. Hyndes said the scenario isn’t convenient for students or the district. “Schools are the hearts of communities

a lot of the time, this one will be for the area,” she said. Just as shovels start work on the Anmore school, the district is expecting construction to begin on a new Moody Middle School in the fall. In all, there is $300 million worth of projects slated for SD43 in the coming years to meet the growing demand in the Tri-Cities. Anmore middle school’s unique design was recognized with a 2011 Canadian Architect Award of Excellence. — www.twitter.com/thenownews

Residents invited to transportation open house Port Coquitlam residents are being asked by the city to help shape its transportation priorities for the next decade. The city is working on its latest Master Transportation Plan (MTP) to replace the last one completed in 2000. The city is holding an open house to gather public input on the plan, now in an early draft form, on June 12 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Outlet at 2253

Leigh Square. City residents will also have a chance to contribute to the plan by participating in an online survey from June 13 to 29. Once completed, the MTP will guide the city in transportation policy for years to come. So far, a draft plan sees an increased emphasis on walking, cycling, transit, and carpooling.

The city began work on the MTP in 2011 and will present a final draft to the community for feedback and council approval in the fall. The survey will be available online at www.portcoquitlam. ca/mtp starting June 13. Questions about the plan can be directed to transportation manager Dave Currie at 604-927-5205 or curried@ portcoquitlam.ca.

Tourney honours boxla star Brent Richter editorial@thenownews.com A beloved Coquitlam lacrosse tournament named for a beloved Coquitlam son kicks off Thursday, with 24 teams from around the province expected to show up. The Trevor Wingrove Memorial Tournament starts Thursday night at the Coquitlam Sports and Leisure Centre, runs all day Friday and Saturday and ends on Sunday when champions will be decided in each of the three age divisions. Formally known as the Coquitlam Minor Lacrosse Association Dogwood Tournament, the tournament was renamed last year in honour of Trevor Wingrove, a Coquitlam lacrosse star and senior manager at the City of Coquitlam. He died in July 2010 after a battle with cancer. “He played all his minor lacrosse here. He won eight provincial championships with teams here and he went on to play Junior A in Coquitlam all the way to senior lacrosse with the Adanacs,” said Wingrove’s father Les, who was also a long-time volunteer in Coquitlam lacrosse circles. “He was a pretty good player and won a few awards along the way. “I think it’s a tremendous honour for him and the family and it’s great to see all the people out who work on it. It’s a really good tournament and it’s fun to be a part of it.” Les said he plans to attend most of the tournament with his family. Coquitlam’s minor lacrosse teams are expected to be highly competitive in all three — peewee, bantam and midget — divisions. Also part of the tournament and Wingrove’s legacy will be a raffle featuring gear from professional lacrosse teams. Funds raised

from the raffle will go toward a scholarship in Wingrove’s name for a male or female lacrosse player wanting to attend college or university. Offering a statement on the city’s behalf, deputy city manager John DuMont said the tournament is a fitting memorial for the much-loved Wingrove. “Coquitlam has a long history of playing and supporting lacrosse. We are very proud to host this tournament in our community, particularly in light of Trevor’s many positive contributions to lacrosse and to the City of Coquitlam,” he said. Admission to the tournament is free.

Municipalities synchronize lawn sprinking restrictions jdeutsch@thenownews.com The dreary spring weather may not make the bylaw all that necessary now, but June marks the start of lawnsprinkling restrictions in the Tri-Cities. From June 1 until Sept. 30, water restrictions are in place meaning residential sprinkling in all three Tri-Cities is allowed for even-numbered properties between 4 to 9 a.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays for odd-numbered properties. Last year, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody all adopted new Metro Vancouver sprinkling restrictions that prohibited sprinkling in the evenings. And residents who repeatedly break the rules could find themselves feeling a little lighter in the wallet. Under the regulations, fines start at $75 and jump up to $300 depending on the stage of water restrictions. In 2011, neither Port Moody nor Port Coquitlam issued any fines related to water restrictions, but officials with Port Moody noted the city typically hands out 15 to 20 warnings a year. It’s unsure how many fines, if any, were issued in Coquitlam, as city officials did not offer a number by The NOW press deadline. Warning letters will be issued to violators first before fines are handed down. The restrictions are enforced on a complaint basis. Even-numbered commercial properties are allowed to sprinkle lawns from 1 to 6 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, while odd-numbered properties have the green light on Tuesdays and

PoCo to celebrate splendour in gardens Do you have a favourite local garden? Make sure to nominate it for the 2012 Pride of PoCo Garden Awards. The PoCo Garden Club and the City of Port Coquitlam are encouraging Port Coquitlam residents to nominate their favourite local gardens for the sixteenth annual Pride of PoCo Garden Awards. The awards recognize the efforts of local residents and businesses who beautify the community through the use of plants, flowers and other landscape materials in around their residential and business properties. In response to requests from residents, the entry deadline has been moved up from previous years by two weeks to June 29. Any resident or local business of Port Coquitlam is eligible for nomination, and the wide variety of categories allow all residents an opportunity to participate. Categories for the awards include residential (front and backyards), business, multifamily complex and balcony gardens. A new feature of this year’s awards is the inclusion of a ‘Before & After Category.’ Residents are invited to submit before and after photos of outside renovations they’ve made to their residence and property. These renovations may include landscaping, hardscaping and building alterations. Gardens are judged by members of the PoCo Garden Club and representatives from the City of Port Coquitlam. Effective use of colour, space, maintenance of plant and landscape materials, and curb appeal are part of the judging criteria with recognition given to naturescape gardens. Nomination forms are available online at: www.portcoquitlam.ca/ gardenawards.

ar, economics and the environment are all under the microscope at this year’s Port Coquitlam Social Justice Film Festival, beginning Friday night. The two-day festival aims to bring in a new audience and introduce them to some of the causes activists are fighting for at home and abroad. “We use it as an opportunity to promote discussion on a wide variety of social justice issues and just raise awareness,” said organizer Derek Koote. The festival takes place at Trinity United Church on Prairie Avenue, opening with a 7 p.m. screening of Enemy Alien, a documentary about a stateless Palestinian living in the United States and dealing with post-9/11 Islamaphobia. The film draws comparisons to the treatment of Japanese Americans during the Second World War. Starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Outbreak: Anatomy of a Plague, which looks the possibility of and likely response to the next great pandemic. From noon till 1 p.m., attendees can watch Learning from a Barefoot Movement, a “very positive, upbeat film” about empowering poor people in rural India. The festival screens The End of Poverty at 1 p.m., a Martin Sheen-narrated doc that looks at the economic policies that cause so much of the world’s population to be poor.

Douglas hosts art exhibit A

n exhibition of art by people with mental health issues will be presented by Douglas College and the Motivation, Power & Achievement Society (MPA) in early June. MPArt Studio Exhibition takes place Thursday, June 7, 5:30-8 p.m., at the Douglas College -David Lam campus, 1250 Pinetree Way in Coquitlam, in the Atrium dining room. Artists are members of MPA, an organization that helps individuals with mental issues and addictions recover through social, vocational and housing programs in their communities. The MPA art program helps members learn how to use their talents and make money at it, while establishing themselves in their communities. Students in the Douglas College Health Care Support Worker (HCSW) program do

practicums at MPA sites and are helping coordinate the event. Audrey Derkatch, a student in the HCSW program, says it is important to recognize the participants in the show as artists, and not focus on their illness. “We talked about their art backgrounds and how they thought the show at Douglas would help them,” said Derkatch. “A lot of them thought the show was a great way to get noticed but also reduce the stigma of people living with mental illness.” Artists will be in attendance. The art — which includes paintings, photographs, glasswork and mosaics and more — will be for sale for $200 or less. Half the proceeds will go to the artists and the other half to the MPA art program. Coleen Brown, an instructor in the HCSW

program, says the goal of the event is to help MPA members connect with people from the Tri-Cities area and to showcase their artwork. “It’s a chance for them to get their names out there and sell their work,” said Brown. “It’s also a way of highlighting for people that inclusion is important in our society.” The event includes refreshments and a performance by Glass Social Justice Youth Choir, whose members include youth of all sexual orientations, and whose mandate is to provide a positive example of young people in society. Douglas College is one of the largest colleges in British Columbia, providing a variety of bachelor’s degrees, university transfer, career and post-degree programs for over 20,000 students each year. For more information, visit www. douglas.bc.ca.

Each person is given a chance to deliver their one minute elevator pitch to the others at the table — with a 10-minute bell signalling

the time to switch tables. The event, which has sold out, invites business leaders and new entreupreneurs alike to exchange their ideas and work secrets over breakfast. Hosted at the PoCo Inn and Suites Hotel and Conference Centre, 1545 Lougheed Hwy., costs $20 for chamber members, and $30 for nonmembers. The cost includes breakfast. Pre-registration is required.

Get the family involved with healthy living choices

Concerned Children’s Advertisers (CCA) today announced its participation in Healthy Me Week (June 4 to 10). The aim of this first annual, national health initiative is to motivate and inspire Canadian kids and families to take action on their health. To this end, CCA is promoting an Eat Smart, Move More message via print and broadcast public service announcements (PSAs), as well as health and physical activity tips aimed at Canadian families. “Only seven per cent of Canadian kids and 15 per cent of adults meet the recommended levels of daily physical activity,” explains CCA president, Bev Deeth. “Healthy Me Week is a call to action for

Canadian families to help them lead healthier, more active lives. Our goal is to provide content that promotes the importance of making healthy choices, increasing physical activity, and eating well-balanced meals, as a means of inspiring lasting, healthy lifestyle changes.” CCA invites Canadian kids and their families to try one of the following seven Eat Smart, Move More tips and activities, every day, during Healthy Me Week: • Colour Me Healthy: Eat foods in a wide range of naturally occurring colours to ensure you’re getting a variety of vitamins, nutrients and powerful antioxidants that help protect against illness and disease.

Keep your kids buckled and safe child car seats or booster seats until the child’s 9th birthday. It doesn’t matter if the trip is a short one to the store or a road trip to see the grandparents. Transport Canada recently announced new child restraint system and booster seat requirements. The new regulations use the most up-to-date technology available for Canadian testing

The BCAA Road Safety Foundation has designated June as Child Passenger Safety Month, a time to promote the importance of using the right child car or booster seat for the children you drive. The Foundation is reminding parents and caregivers that in B.C. all drivers are responsible for transporting all children in age- and weight-appropriate

requirements and ensure an appropriate minimum level of safety for children. For more information, visit www.childseatinfo.ca or call 1-877-247-5551.

Create a “rainbow dinner,” with each family contributing a healthy food in their favourite colour to the meal. • Play with Me: The family that plays together, stays (healthy) together. Create a mini-Olympics in your backyard. Include challenges that require running, jumping, and catching — all of which build strength and boost coordination. • Walk with Me: Walking is one of the best and easiest forms of exercise. It’s a low impact activity, yields numerous health benefits, and requires no athletic ability or expensive equipment. Leave the car at home today. Walk your kids to school. Take a family walk around the neighbourhood after dinner. • Peel Me a Grape: Load up on fresh fruits and vegetables for optimum health. Canada’s Food Guide recommends four to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables daily, depending on age. Add some variety by asking your kids to pick a new fruit or vegetable each week for your family to try. • Give Me a (Fitness) Break: Are you sitting down for this? You might want to stand up. A recent Canadian study points to the detrimental effects prolonged sitting can have

on your health. Set the timer, get up, and take mini-fitness breaks at the office and at home. Add an exercise twist to Family Movie Night. Decide together on a word, phrase, or action. Every time someone in the movie says the chosen word or phrase, or does the action, everyone stands up and exercises on the spot. • Take Me Shopping: Involve kids in meal planning, grocery shopping and food preparation. They’re more likely to eat foods they help choose and prepare. Use grocery shopping as a teachable moment to explain where their food comes from and how to read food labels. Designate one mealtime a week to a “Kids’ Choice” meal, where they get to determine the (healthy) menu, help you shop for ingredients, and prepare the food. • Dance with Me: In addition to being lots of fun for kids and adults alike, dancing can help strengthen bones and muscles, increase stamina, and reduce stress. Why not hold an impromptu dance competition in your family room. Take turns judging each performance — will you make it to the next round?

So if disorder such as obstructive you are feeling sleepy, stay out sleep apnea — may have such of the driver’s seat. You may severe daytime sleepiness that be as dangerous as a drunk they can easily nod off when driver. they should be alert.

If it takes fewer than five minutes for you to fall asleep during the day, you may be suffering from a sleep deficit, and the need to have a nap is your body and brain telling you that you are in need of more sleep. The nap is just a short-term solution if you continue the habit of sleeping too late or waking up too early. If you need a nap, it’s best to do so early in the day — either the morning or in the early afternoon. Naps taken later in the day can perpetuate a bad sleep-wake cycle by making it harder for you to fall asleep at your appropriate bedtime. As our brains and bodies cycle through natural rhythms throughout the day, we need a break — though not necessarily a nap — every two hours or so. When you feel restless or a little unfocussed during the mid-

Connecting a means to cope with dementia Spring is about renewal and rejuvenation — especially for Coquitlam residents dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. “One thing that helps us renew our energy and improve our well-being is connecting with others,” says Katherine Guildbride, the local First Link Coordinator for the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. Research shows that being socially active helps to reduce stress, boost mood and keep relationships strong — all important factors in preventing dementia, a degenerative brain disease. One in four Canadians has someone in their family with Alzheimer’s disease. And every five minutes a Canadian develops dementia. Those statistics illustrate the need for residents to take immediate steps for their own brain health, she says. “Connecting with others can be about maintaining old friendships, but it can also be about new experiences and creating new bonds.” Another suggestion for connecting with people is to tell them about your diagnosis. “The disease becomes a very personal experience not just for the person living with dementia but for their families and friends as

well, the people who were an important part of those memories,” says Guildbride. Although receiving a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia is very difficult, some people are relieved to have an explanation for the problems they are experiencing. “Telling family members and friends about your diagnosis also gives them the opportunity to learn about dementia and how they can best support you.” It may also help to meet others with the disease. “You are not alone in your journey,” says Guildbride. There are approximately 70,000 other people with dementia living in B.C. Some of them participate in a free local support and information group that meets monthly. The group serves as a forum for sharing practical tips and strategies for coping with the disease. It meets at 7 p.m. on the last Wednesday of each month. For more information, contact Guildbride at 604-298-0780 or kguildbride@alzheimerbc.org. For more information on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, visit the Alzheimer Society of B.C. website at www.alzheimerbc.org.

morning or mid-afternoon, you may want to try a change of pace. Take up a different activity, take a short walk, stretch, meditate or listen to some music. If you’re not sleepdeprived, you should feel refreshed — without the need for a nap. If you are suffering from persistent or severe daytime sleepiness, see your doctor. You may need further testing to rule out a sleep disorder, such as obstructive sleep apnea, or a medical problem affecting the quality of your sleep. A warning for students: I didn’t realize — until I returned to the lecture hall on the stage rather than in the audience — that I could see every face in the hall, including the one who was nodding off.

Donate your clunker, help your kidney

R

ecycling your old vehicle by donating it to the Kidney Car Program is the perfect way to participate in Canadian Environment Week running from June 3 to 9. The Kidney Car Program is part of a unique series of “recycle for life” programs developed by The Kidney Foundation of Canada that benefit the environment, vehicle owners and people affected by kidney disease. The program accepts trucks, motorcycles, trailers, ATVs or even farm equipment, with donors receiving a free vehicle tow and a tax receipt. “Removing unsafe vehicles from our roads through the Kidney Car Program is an environmentally sound way to make our roads safer,” said Allan Lamb, president and COO of the BCAA Road Safety Foundation. The BCAA Road Safety Foundation receives 50 per cent of the proceeds from each vehicle donated by BCAA members. “Kidney disease is a major cause of death in Canada and an estimated 240,000 British Columbians either suffer from or are at risk for this devastating disease,” said Lorraine Gerard, executive director of the Kidney Foundation, BC Branch. “We are thrilled to have BCAA Road Safety Foundation partner with us in our fight to make life better for those with kidney disease.” Since 1995, the Kidney Car Program has recycled almost 25,000 vehicles. For each car donated, tires and car parts are recycled and 40 litres of fluids per average car are saved from leaking into our backyards. Canadian Environment Week is an opportunity to get that unsafe smoke blowing clunker off the road and help turn unwanted vehicles into life-saving machines. To donate your vehicle, call 1-888-538-1057 or donate online at www.kidney.bc.ca.

Potatoes with yellow flesh are smaller and sweeter than larger potatoes. This may limit their storage life. One useful way of storing potatoes is to keep small, medium and large ones each in their own boxes. The small ones should be used first because they shrivel fastest, then the medium potatoes and last of all, the big ones.

SFU PRESCHOOL STUDY NEEDS PARTICIPANTS

Tips to finding the right contractor B could mean that the contractor is just passing through the area trying to scam innocent consumers.” BBB advises consumers to use the following checklist when choosing a home contractor: • Don’t give into sales pressure. If a contractor shows up to your door offering services, ask to take their business card or flyer. Do not let a person pressure you into signing up before consulting with your spouse or partner. • Be picky and have lots of options. Seek at least three bids from prospective contractors based on the same specifications, materials and labour needed to complete the project. Homeowners should discuss bids in detail with each contractor and ask questions about variations in pricing. The lowest-priced contractor may not be the best. • Make sure they are insured. Consumers should ask whether the company is insured with WorkSafe BC against claims covering workers’ compensation,

efore summer arrives, spring forward with BBB Home Improvement tips During the warm weather, homeowners often make the time to do some home improvement projects. Whether you are looking to redo your kitchen and bath, or replace your home’s roof or built a deck, it is essential that you find a contractor that you can trust. Last year, Better Business Bureau serving Mainland B.C. received 867 complaints against general contractors, and home improvement related companies. This past spring BBB has received reports of contractors in the ThompsonOkanagan and across the Lower Mainland who have intimidated homeowners and ended up charging too much and doing too little. “Watch out for red flags from those just looking to make a quick buck,” says Lynda Pasacreta, BBB President and CEO. “Be especially wary of doing business with a contractor who solicits business door-to-door.

Plan eco-friendly fun for your kids this summer (NC)—With many children out of the classroom over the coming months, summer is an ideal time for parents to introduce eco-friendly activities to help kids learn environmentally-friendly habits, while embracing everything Mother Nature has to offer. “Learning about the environment should be an on-going activity and the summer months are the perfect opportunity to get in touch with nature,” says Mary Desjardins, the executive director of TD Friends of the Environment Foundation. “Through fun-filled eco-friendly activities, parents can help their kids learn life-long lessons about their local environment and the impact of their actions.” Every year, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF) supports thousands of grassroots projects dedicated to preserving Canada’s environment, says Desjardins. TD FEF has put together a few ideas of how to put an eco-friendly twist on activities for the kids this summer: • Visit a Local Organic Farm: Local farms are great ways to show your children

how food is grown and harvested. Curious young minds will get a glimpse of farm life – whether it’s feeding goats and sheep, milking cows, or caring for crops. • Grow a Meal: Start a small garden project by growing herbs and lettuce in a window box or build a raised-bed garden. Enjoy the results by adding homegrown vegetables and herbs to a meal. • Go on a Park Adventure: Bring your children to a local park reserve to explore and admire Canada’s beautiful landscapes. Photograph many different types of trees, flowers and bugs for a nature log. • Volunteer at an Environmental Charity: Check out local charities that need volunteers for the summer. Activities could range from cleaning a beach or park to planting a community garden. More information about local projects in your community is available online at www.tdfef.com.

Linde, George scale the summit — again John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

G

etting to the top of the heap is one thing. Staying there and defending your distinction as “the guy” is another. Centennial Secondary’s Nathan George and Dr. Charles Best’s James Linde did exactly that last weekend. George won his second straight series of titles in the 200-metre and 400-metre dashes, while Linde turned the trick in the 100-m sprint, as the Coquitlam teens bested all comers at the 2012 BC High School Track & Field Championships at Burnaby’s Swangard Stadium over the weekend. Clocking in at 21.8 seconds in the 200-m event, George also posted a time of 47.89 in the 400-m event to claim a second year’s worth of double golds. “I just wanted to end off the season with a win and end off my high school career with a win,” George said Monday. “That was my goal going in — two golds.” Last year, George topped all 200-m competitors in B.C. with a time of 22.12, while his 400-m finish in 2011 came in at 48.6. That he shaved off time from both his championship times from 2011 only made this year’s victories that much sweeter. “I try and stay relaxed, but I always get nervous — you just have to try and deal with it, George said. “I was surprised with my time in the 400 metres. I wanted 47 [seconds], but I wasn’t expecting it. In the 200 m, I was expecting that result more because I thought I could run that time.” As for Linde, playing second fiddle to George in the 200 m was no big deal. Friends, clubmates and competitors, the two Cheetahs having been training together for the better part of the last seven years. “When I looked over and realized Nathan had won it, I was very happy for him,” Linde said. Linde’s second straight 100 m triumph did not look to be a sure thing after the race had ended. In fact, the 17-year-old Best student was certain that he had second place all but locked up. “I didn’t think I won at first,” Linde said in an interview Tuesday. “I finished neck and neck with [St. George’s Chad Payne] and I

thought he had it. I congratulated him and walking back, it was announced that I won. It was disbelief. I was ecstatic.” Linde finished with a time of 11.14, compared to Payne’s 11.18. “At the starting block I’m really just envisioning the finish line,” Linde said. “I forget everything else, except for me and my lane. There’s not a lot going through your mind at that point. It’s just pure focus.” Riverside Secondary’s Teagan Rasche also had a breakthrough at last weekend’s meet, as the Grade 9 student stood neck and neck with competitors three years her senior. Rasche nailed down a first-place finish in javelin with a toss of 39.18 metres, and took second in the 1,500-metre race walk. “I was thrilled,” Rasche said Tuesday. “I wanted to do my best and my best just happened to be the furthest throw that day. It felt pretty amazing. Afterwards, I felt fearless. It was wonderful.” Rasche was trailed closely by a pair of fellow Tri-Cities athletes in the javelin throw, as Best’s Tiffanni Hernandez came second (37.51 m) followed by third-place finisher Brittni Wolczyk, an Archbishop Carney student who threw for 37.21 m. Channel Botsis, a Banting Middle School student, came in seventh with a toss of 33.53 m. Here are other results, GIRLS: Picabo Reeves, Best; 400 m, sixth; Miranda Menzies, Centennial; 800 m, third; Erina Cho, Best; 3,000 m, 18th; Dana Townsend, Best; 16th, 1,500-m steeplechase; Elizabeth Coady, Carney; ninth, high jump; Erin Marshall, Carney; 10th, high jump; Jessica Jazdarehee, Gleneagle; 17th, triple jump; Kiara Sutton, Ecole des Pionniers; 18th, shot put; Jaime McLaughlin, Gleneagle; 20th, shot put; Channel Botsis, Banting Middle; forth, discus; Brittni Wolczyk, Carney; eighth, discus; Kiara Sutton, Ecole des Pionniers; 12th, shot put; Channel Botsis, Banting Middle; fifth, hammer throw.

because I didn’t feel that was my role, but now they’re telling us to keep it going,” said McQuade. “There are a lot of rookies on this team so we have something to prove.” McQuade’s first goal of the night came on the powerplay. His second tally was a nice shorthanded marker set up by No. 1 overall draft pick Travis Cornwall early in the third that tied the game 5-5. Langley replied right off the faceoff as ex-junior Adanac Nick Bilic buried one past Rose to restore their one-goal lead. Four minutes later, Kevin Olson again pulled Coquitlam even, cashing in his second of the game off a McQuade feed. The Thunder remained patient and netted the game winner with 7:47 left, when Shayne Jackson scored. The Adanac defence gave few golden opportunities but the few chances Langley got, they converted. At the other end, another former Coquitlam junior, Steve Fryer, fielded a lot of outside shots in racking up the win. Without the services of Dane Dobbie (injured) and Cory Conway (traded to Nanaimo) — who combined for 52 goals last season — the Coquitlam offence has been the difference in its three losses. It will take a committee to make up the difference. “We’ve only lost (two of) our games by two and one goal, so it shows we only have to put more goals in. Our defence is holding us in games,” said McQuade. “I believe we have the best defence in the league, we just have to start scoring more goals, taking the offence and be accountable to ourselves.” Coquitlam’s next test comes Wednesday in Victoria. On Saturday, the New Westminster Salmonbellies visit the Poirier Sports Centre for a 7 p.m. ball drop.

SUPPORTED BY

Boasting an overall record that reads 19-3, you could make the argument that the Dr. Charles Best Blue Devils deserved a better fate to close out the senior girls soccer season. But for all that dominance over the season, key injuries at key times deflated what was looking like a fortuitous run at last week’s provincial championships. The Blue Devils went unbeaten in their first three games last week before an injury to tournament all star Nadia Karmali deflated the side’s momentum in the semifinals against Delta’s Panorama Ridge. In that semifinal matchup, Karmali, a defender, went down 15 minutes into the contest. A minute later, Panorama Ridge staked out a 1-0 lead. Andrea Perrotta got the Blue Devils on even footing with the 1-1 goal in the second half, but Panorama would net the winner 20 minutes from time. “It was a disheartening loss because for most of the game we were the better team, and

unfortunately ran into some bad luck with the loss of one of our most valuable players,” said Best coach Alfonso Napoletano. The Blue Devils’ march to a fourth-place finish came after a 2-1 win over South Kamloops, a 0-0 draw with Carihi and 5-0 victory over Seaquam. The Centennial Centaurs, on the other hand, claimed the sixth spot in a similar state — felled by injuries. In the fifth-place game, the Cents dropped a 2-0 decision to Point Grey to limp to a 185-1 season record. “We were down to 11 players, no subs, everyone exhausted, banged up and sore, so it wasn’t an artistic success, but we competed hard as always,” Centaurs coach Larry Moro said in an e-mail to The NOW. The Cents opened up the tourney last week with a 3-1 win over Claremont thanks to markers from Kaitlyn Savitsky, Nicole Foreman and Tamara Derby. The tables turned in the Cents’ Game 2 loss, a 3-1 upending at the hands of Handsworth. “We had several great scoring opportunities and simply

put, they finished their chances and we didn’t,” Moro said. “A closer game then the score may indicate.” Centennial then posted wins over Fleetwood Park (20) and Kitsilano (1-0), before finishing the tourney in sixth place. Cents midfielder Olivia Aguiar was named to the Commissioner’s 11 All-Star team, before being added to Simon Fraser University’s club for the upcoming season just days later. A Coquitlam Metro-Ford product, Aguiar will make the jump to the collegiate loop next season alongside fellow Metro-Ford product and Pitt Meadows native Brianna Morrison. “Olivia brings an offensive threat to the midfield that will have defenders wrong footed and chasing her in many situations this fall,” noted SFU coach Shelley Howieson.
