Inmates assault guards Union says PoCo jail is overcrowded Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com The Fraser North Pretrial Centre in Port Coquitlam is a pressure cooker right now — that’s according to an observation by the union representing correction staff at the facility. Last Friday, two officers were assaulted at the jail, including one guard who needed to be treated in hospital for his injuries. Dean Purdy, chair of corrections and sheriff services for the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, told The NOW overcrowding in the prison is making it difficult for staff to manage. “Things are pretty tense inside right now,” he said, noting another minor assault occurred on a guard on Monday. Purdy said the prison population count has been between 525 and 550, but the facility was originally built with a capacity for 300. He said it translates to one officer responsible for every 60 inmates. The prison is considered the most overcrowded maximum-security jail in the province. The union is calling on the provincial government to address the issue of overcrowding before someone is seriously injured or killed inside the prison. Purdy said ideally the inmate to guard ratio would be 20 to 1, and he’d like to see it close to that number.  CONT. ON PAGE 4, see GUARD.

Grad graffiti adds to district’s bill

Centennial Secondary latest target of vandals, but overall number of incidents declining Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com It’s generally a rite of passage for graduating high school students — the grad prank. But a recent incident of graffiti at Centennial Secondary in Coquitlam isn’t going to make its way on to the honour rolls of either the school district or residents who live in the neighbourhood. Sometime over the weekend, someone spray painted a group of portables on the grounds of the school, including one portable with the words “Grad 12” scrolled across the front. Though some residents who contacted The NOW regarding the vandalism suggested the work goes beyond a grad prank and would like to see charges against the perpetrator if caught,

also dropped to 538 in 2010-11, from a high of 1,352 in 2005-06. The numbers from the last school year have not been totalled. But fewer incidents of vandalism don’t necessarily translate into savings for the district. The average incident of vandalism cost the district $205 in 2010-11, compared to $104 in 2005-06. A breakdown of the numbers in 2010-11 show the district spent $66,317 on labour, $33,872 on material and $12,270 on contractor costs for repairs, for a total of $112,545. Back in 2005-06, the district spent $37,005, $14,125, and $31,049 on labour, material and contractor costs, respectively, on vandalism repairs, for a total of $82,179.

Patients still missing from Forensic Hospital completes first of two reviews and may soon issue more unescorted day passes Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

P

atients at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Port Coquitlam could soon be getting their unescorted day-pass privileges returned. The hospital has completed one of two reviews into its unescorted day-pass program following the disappearance of two men from the facility just days apart in late May. The hospital suspended all unescorted day passes for all patients until the first of the reviews was complete. “We found nothing out of order, or any violations and everything was according to protocol,” said a Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) spokesperson in an email to The NOW. However, due to confiden-

The PHSA did note the hospital was working to have day passes re-installed as soon as possible, but did not have a firm timeline. A second broader external review was also expected to take place examining the

hospital’s procedures, protocols and policies compared to other forensic hospitals in the country. The hospital noted the second review has yet to start, as there are out-of-province stakeholders expected to take part. On May 24, Coquitlam RCMP issued a warrant for

Gregory Owen Schleen, 49, who was last seen by a staff member at the hospital the previous morning. He was supposed to be at the Coast Cottages on the Riverview Hospital site later in the morning but never showed up. Just a few days earlier, a warrant was issued for David Fomradas, 34. Fomradas is the man behind a bizarre carjacking in 2009 involving Vancouver actress Carly Pope. In both cases, the RCMP noted the patients’ mental history and warned the public to not approach them, and instead call police. In the case of Schleen, it is not the first time he’s gone missing from the hospital, as he also did so in 2009. Officials with the hospital insisted the two men are not a danger to the public and such

incidents are rare. As for Schleen and Fomradas, they remain on the lam. Coquitlam Mounties said they have received no tips or leads as to the whereabouts of either man. “At this point, we are following every lead to locate them and, unfortunately, we have not been able to locate them at this time,” said RCMP Const. Michelle Luca. She indicated investigators are still working on the case and advisories have been sent to all Lower Mainland and B.C. detachments regarding the two men’s disappearance. Schleen was noted to have friends and family along the Sunshine Coast and on Vancouver Island. The RCMP is asking anyone who sees either man to call 911 or the nearest police department and not to approach them.

Police say no leads in fatal shooting case Squamish man with links to crime group was gunned down May 30

Houghton indicated it’s not uncommon for an investigation into a gang shooting to move very slowly. “It could take months or years, if it’s ever even solved,” he told The NOW. Gurbinder Singh Toor, 35, of Squamish, was shot on May 30 in the recreation centre parking lot, and later died in hospital.

came back in 2007-08, when the district spent $137,840 to deal with vandalism. School District 43 has managed to save money over the years in the replacement of broken windows. In 2010-11, the district spent $69,557 on replacing windows, compared to $112,874 in 2005-06. But the average cost for each window rose to $129 in 2010-11, from $83 back in 2005-06. As students put the final touches on their school year, the buildings themselves can often be the targets of vandals in the summer. “Vandalism, including glass breakage and graffiti, are always a concern, particularly when the weather improves and the kids are more inclined to be outside,” said Ken Niven, assistant director of maintenance operations for

School District 43. He said some years the district gets lucky and the number of incidents is low, but other times the district is inundated with vandalism events. There are some measures the district takes to curb vandalism during the summer break. Niven noted the district has a private security provider patrolling sites on a daily basis. The district also has in-house security staff responding to burglar and fire alarms 24/7 as well as patrolling sites in an effort to control unwanted activity at the schools. The schools are generally occupied by caretaking staff, who work on maintenance projects throughout the day. When unoccupied, the buildings are monitored by a central alarm provider, while the police are called in the event of a suspected break-in.

“It’s only going to get worse,” he suggested, pointing out relief in the form of new provincial jails isn’t coming for a couple years. In April, an inmate at the facility reportedly jumped from the third storey of the building to his death. Although there have been reports the death was a possible suicide, the B.C. Coroners Service couldn’t confirm any details surrounding the incident. Purdy said he wasn’t sure if the incident is related to the overcrowding problems at the pretrial centre. As for the most recent officer incidents, the first assault occurred about 7 a.m. when a female officer was “suckerpunched” in the side of the head by a prisoner who did not want to go to court, while the second assault occurred about four hours later when an officer was assaulted by a prisoner with gang ties. The prisoner involved in that assault has affiliations with the Independent Soldiers, which has ties with the Hells Angels. “This is the 16th assault at

There are more than 500 inmates at the PoCo jail. the centre so far this year,” Purdy said. “We had 39 last year. From our point of view, that’s unacceptable.” He said union officials met with Justice Minister Shirley Bond last year to discuss the growing violence at provincial jails and the need to reduce the officer-prisoner ratios. “She agreed to take a look at it,” Purdy said. Corrections officers are also facing increasing violence among rival gang members at

North Fraser. Earlier this year, two Hells Angels members facing murder charges were involved in separate fights with prisoners linked to rival gangs, including a man who is a member of the Red Scorpions. Purdy said union officials plan to meet next week with WorkSafeBC to discuss safety concerns and violence at B.C.’s six maximum-security jails. — with files from the Vancouver Sun

Metro wants a say on Riverview lands Jeremy Deutsch

PoCo on flood alert Jeremy Deutsch

jdeutsch@thenownews.com As Lower Mainland communities along the Fraser River gear up for a potential flood in the next few days, officials with the City of Port Coquitlam are watching the rising water closely. With a high stream-flow advisory issued Monday for the Lower Fraser River, the city has kicked in its flood preparedness plans. Though PoCo officials don’t expect the city to be hit with widespread flooding, no chances are being taken. The flood response includes extra patrols on city dikes, monitoring weather forecasts and river levels daily and keeping the public informed with a plethora of information

on the city’s website. The city is also in the midst of updating its evacuation plan as necessary. “The city is very prepared,” said Tara Stroup, emergency program officer with the city. A significant proportion of Port Coquitlam is in either the Fraser River or Pitt River flood plain. The city raised the dikes in the community in 2007 to avoid flooding. On Tuesday, river levels at the Mission monitoring station had started to slightly recede. Levels on the Lower Fraser River are expected to reach their peak by late Thursday or Friday. A variety of resources are available at the city’s website, portcoquitlam.ca/flood and, as of Wednesday, in printed format at City Hall and other

city facilities. For weeks the Kwikwetlem First Nation has been preparing for the potential of a flood along the Coquitlam River. In early May, the band sent out a flood advisory to its members prior to a weekend that recorded near summerlike temperatures, while band members also started storing and filling 1,200 sandbags. There are about 12 to 14 homes on the reserve that could be affected if the river starts to flood. Communities near rivers around the province have been nervously watching water levels for weeks, as the potential for flooding is a possibility due to the higher than normal snow packs left from the winter. twitter.com/ jercoquitlamnow

As the City of Coquitlam and the province develop plans for the Riverview Hospital site, regional politicians want in on the discussion. Metro Vancouver’s environment and parks committee unanimously voted on a pair of motions that would see the district provide input on future conservation plans for the site. One motion is for Metro Vancouver to provide comment to the province on the relationship between the hospital site and Colony Farm Regional Park, the latter of which is operated by the regional district. The other resolution is to take a more direct role in the process, which could include requesting a seat on the Riverview Natural Heritage Stewardship Advisory Committee, participate in discussions about site management, or consider other possible roles for Metro Vancouver. Coquitlam Coun. Selina Robinson, who also sits on the

Metro Vancouver parks committee, said she supports the district’s involvement in the process. “We want to be consulted, we want to be at that table, because we recognize this has regional significance,” she told The NOW. “There’s some real appreciation for having a large parcel like that and preserving it and maintaining it.” Robinson noted the parks committee hasn’t decided exactly what the involvement will look like, but she expects the district to move quickly on the issue. The stewardship committee, which started in 2001, is comprised of representatives from the Burke Mountain Naturalists and the Riverview Horticultural Centre Society. The steps by Metro Vancouver are all part of a renewed focus on the future of Riverview. Earlier this year, the province established a heritage conservation committee to document the community heritage values for the Riverview lands. Four community values workshops were planned, leading to preparation of a Riverview Lands Heritage Conservation Plan

and eventual decisions about future use and disposition of the lands. However, the workshops courted controversy. Community groups, Riverview stakeholders and members of the public expressed frustration over the process after being given just a week’s notice about the meetings. In the wake of widespread criticism, the province added two additional open houses to the Riverview Hospital heritage review process. Riverview is wedged between Mundy Park to its northwest and Colony Farm Regional Park to its southeast. Riverview and Colony Farm were once part of the same provincial property.

Opinion

Sounding off on church bells I am a practising catholic and a parishioner of Our Lady of the Assumption Church. Church bell tolling in most Christian countries is widely accepted without too much fuss, or that is the way it has been for many years. The present day world we live in is vastly different to what it was just 50 years ago. The beauty of the bell tolling is not appreciated by everyone. Area residents were fully aware of the belfry before and when it was being built, To The but said very little or nothing. As with most things in life, both sides have to comprise at a roundtable discussion. Rev. Thompson is trying to reduce the sound emitted from the bell at the present time. Council is meeting again to find a common ground settlement that would appease both parties. May I suggest that the tolling of the bells every hour be curtailed and only sounded each day before a church service, be it in the morning or

evening or both if and when warranted and major feasts as and when they occur. Franz Lorage Coquitlam ••• Thank you M. Conn for your informative letter (“There’s a toll to these bells tolling,” June 8). I had no idea that Our Lady of the Assumption Church is ringing its bells Editor so often. I had assumed they only rang on Sunday, but every day four times a day and chiming on the hour. I have to question what purpose the ringing of these bells serves in 2012. To announce the time? To call their flock to prayer? Or to bully us by making their presence felt? M. Thompson Port Coquitlam

Fines might help keep kids sober

A

pparently, a lot of teenagers drink, and that’s a fact of life with which parents have to come to terms. But it doesn’t mean we roll over and do nothing about it. Keeping kids on the straight and narrow pathway to adulthood is a daunting task, and it helps when society steps up to the plate with policies and legislation that make the job a bit easier. The provincial government has taken a small step to help keep kids from drinking alcohol. Fines of $575 will be given to people who give alcohol to minors. That includes “bootleggers” — people who buy alcohol for kids from the liquor store — and servers at bars and restaurants. Anyone who buys alcohol for a minor he or she doesn’t know deserves at least a $575 fine. A night in the drunk tank might be more fitting. How can you possibly know that that kid — who probably doesn’t know the first thing about controlling his or her liquor intake — won’t get behind the wheel of a car and endanger himself or herself, friends or others on the road? In the Tri-Cities, like virtually every other community, we have had our share of alcoholrelated deaths over the years, often underaged youths gone too early because they were drinking and driving. Licensees who operate businesses where liquor is being served can be fined from $7,500 to $10,000, or they could be handed a 10-to 15-day suspension for serving alcohol to minors. But now servers who don’t ask for identification can also be fined individually. The fact is, waiters and waitresses who serve alcohol to minors are just being lazy, as it only takes a few seconds to check someone’s documents. No one should be making it easier for youth to access alcohol.

Frankly, I don’t see how, say, Kevin Falcon or Rich Coleman or any other member of the B.C. Liberal caucus could right their party’s ship. They are all tainted by association with the Campbell government and the HST debacle. Clark’s personal popularity may be plummeting, but I see no evidence to suggest one of her caucus colleagues would do much better with the voters. Now, I’m not sure whether she can regain her own popularity. Certainly, the gap between the NDP and the B.C. Liberals should close at least a bit by the time the election campaign rolls around, or so most observers think. But Clark would be well advised to try something different. What she’s doing right now clearly isn’t working — and getting back the respect of the voters is the only way to even think of getting out of that very deep hole.

Why not save the old Port Mann Bridge, which is much closer to 2.5-million B. C. residents? The Victoria Bridge in Saskatoon is used by over a million cyclists and pedestrians each year. Even though engineers said the structure could no longer handle 10,000 vehicles per day, it will last for decades as a pedestrian bridge. Saskatoon saved millions in demolition costs. Today, the Victoria Bridge is on the list of Saskatoon’s tourist attractions: www.saskatoonkiosk.ca/saskatoon-tour/Victoria-Bridge. php. The New York High Line is one of the most pedestrian eco-friendly areas in New York. In the 1930s the bridge carried freight lines over an industrial area; today it is a greenway and pedestrian walkway. Search for New York High Line to see photos of this amazing feature. The Paris Promenade Plantee, a five-kilometre linear park built on a former elevated railway track, was the inspiration for the New York High Line. The New York and Paris greenways are in high density areas; the Port Mann structure

however, with thoughtful design for approaches, will give thousands of residents an opportunity to view the river and walk and cycle rather than drive and pollute. I think it is worthwhile to reconsider the destiny of our Port Mann Bridge. Rather than increasing our concrete footprint on this planet, why not turn a major concrete bridge into a cycling and pedestrian greenway across the Fraser River? Yvonne Harris Former Regional Planner in B.C. and the Yukon Port Moody

Good patient care means making an investment

ate for patient care, that housekeeping efforts against serious infections are taking a beating, and that there aren’t enough community supports to decongest crowded hospital wards. The best way to carry out the improvements the minister seeks is to hire more nurses and other staff. But all the government has to offer is announcements about new hospital construction projects off into the future. We believe the minister should meet with front-line nurses and learn what’s needed to improve patient care. But he should not come telling us to do more with less. Safe patient care, quality patient care, means more nurses and more support staff and more resources to provide the care patients need and deserve. Debra McPherson President BC Nurses’ Union

Is the good pastor channeling medieval canons? I was in several French cities less than two years ago and can’t remember hearing church bells.

To The Re: “Government committed to Royal Columbian redevelopment,” www.thenownews.com, Tuesday, June 12. Given the provincial government’s current budget-focused approach to health care, the ultimatum to improve patient care within 150 days — delivered to Fraser Health earlier by Health Minister Mike de Jong – is, quite frankly, ridiculous. Without concrete steps to increase healthcare funding and allow Fraser Health and other health authorities to hire more nurses to ensure patients get safe care when they need it, the minister is engaging in little more than public relations bluster. More people than ever are seeking care from our public health-care facilities and services. But the government is insisting on the tightest health-care budgets in a decade. So it’s not surprising nurses are forced to care for increasing numbers of patients in hallways and closets and other areas not appropri-

Even in Europe, church bells don’t ring all the time

Jesus said “Can you watch an hour with me?” not “Ring the bell every hour” as he was Jewish and bells aren’t part of the Jewish religion. In fact even the first Christians didn’t use bells as the first ones allegedly came around the 12th century. Casting a bell, never mind one that makes an harmonious sound, is an intricate process, especially the huge bells one sees in Europe. Greek monasteries used to hit a flat metal plate inside the church that was most likely only heard at close range. Pastor Thompson should do the same. In medieval European cities, each neighbourhood had at least a couple of churches (in Paris there are four churches within walking

Church and cemetery proposed for Burke One of the largest up and coming neighbourhoods in Northeast Coquitlam is beginning to take shape. The Partington Creek Neighbourhood, located on the southeastern slope of Burke Mountain, is envisioned to become the “commercial, civic and recreational hub of Northeast Coquitlam,” and will be home to between 8,500 and 15,000 new residents over the next 25 years. After a month of public consultations and workshops, plans suggest the 7.5-hectare,

Mae Reid expressed concern about the construction of a cemetery at the centre of the community. “I’m not against it, I just wonder if that’s the right place for it,” she said. “We’re designing the hub of Partington Creek, we have to be careful about what we put in the core.

faceb k City inks RCMP deal Kendra Wong editorial@thenownews.com The RCMP will remain the main police force in Coquitlam, Anmore and Belcarra after Coquitlam city council renewed the Municipal Police Unit Agreement during a council meeting Monday. Mayor Richard Stewart, who indicated early on he was ready to sign the 20-year deal, is pleased council has finally moved forward with the issue. “In the end, the RCMP is the right police for us at this stage in our community,” said Stewart. “[This contract] is better than the last. We solved some of the issues that were serious challenges in the last contract. We haven’t solved them all, but it’s much more workable for local governments to manage their RCMP detachments.” Under the new agreement, the province and municipal governments will have greater input into how the RCMP spends money, how its operations are structured and who is appointed to senior management positions. Despite making improvements to accountability, affordability and governance issues, many councillors signed with a heavy hand, adding they feel bullied into approving the contract. “I feel like I don’t have a choice … I don’t like being forced into a corner, but I have been,” said Coun. Selina Robinson, noting that many outstanding questions remain unanswered. “There are still many questions that I have and I feel like this is a huge debt load that we’re incurring over the next 20 years for our citizens,” said Coun. Mae Reid. “Time will tell if this is the best deal that we

can get.” However, Coun. Brent Asmundson stressed that numerous improvements have been made to the contract and the city should test-drive it before opting out. “The three areas that were the most critical [were] accountability and transparency, affordability and cost containment, and governance. Those were addressed in the new contract,” said Asmundson. “I want to … see how those functions operate and run in this contract [first].” After a lengthy discussion, eight councillors voted in favour of the contract. Lou Sekora was the only councillor to vote against it. The RCMP also released a three-year strategic plan specifically for the Coquitlam detachment, offering solutions to accountability issues and promising a more “high functioning, healthy organization,” that the city praised at an earlier meeting. “It’s the most efficient method of policing,” said Stewart. “We’ve analyzed the other options. It saved us a lot of money and we’re getting good results … I think Coquitlam is well served by the RCMP.” The city can still opt out of the contract without being penalized as long as it provides a 25-month notice provision. The RCMP has been the centre of controversy in recent months, following the expiration of the previous 20-year agreement on March 31 and the announcement that the new agreement would include unexpected wage increases for Mounties. Other cities yet to sign on, including Burnaby, Langley, North Vancouver and Richmond, are all expected to ink the deal in coming days. Port Coquitlam is expected to sign on next week.

PoCo opposes plan to cut parking for condos OUTLET STORE

Brent Richter editorial@thenownews.com Port Coquitlam may have helped the region dodge a bullet from Metro Vancouver last week. Metro Vancouver planning staff issued a report June 8, concluding that too many condo parking spots are being left vacant, and that Lower Mainland governments should reduce the number of parking stalls developers are required to include with condos by as much as 50 per cent. Coun. Brad West, Port Coquitlam’s representative on Metro’s planning and agriculture committee, said that idea may work for transit-rich cities like Vancouver, but the reality for bedroom communities like PoCo is that it just wouldn’t fly. “If you were to reduce the required amount of condo parking by 50 per cent, all you would be doing is causing chaos in the community,” he said. “We don’t have the benefit of being serviced adequately by transit. People in Port Coquitlam are dependant on their vehicle, in large part. The idea that half the buyers in Port Coquitlam wouldn’t be owning a vehicle and therefore not be requiring a parking stall is just not rooted in reality.” West introduced a motion to strip the recommendation that municipalities adopt the new guidelines from the report before forwarding it to Metro Vancouver. The motion passed unanimously. Municipalities aren’t obligated to adopt Metro development recommendations, but Metro decisions tend to create a “domino effect” in the Lower Mainland, especially as developers start pressuring local governments to follow the new guidelines, West said. Port Coquitlam currently requires condos to have 1.3 parking stalls for every onebedroom unit and two stalls for every unit with three or more bedrooms. West said the push for reduced parking seems to be coming mostly from developers whose bottom lines are affected by having to build parking spaces. “Other representatives from other municipalities reported observing the same thing. They’re being lobbied by developers to reduce parking requirements in new condos,” he said. West said the report had an “inherent elitism” in that it was prepared by people who “cannot see east of Boundary Road.”

Filmmaker focuses on nature Brent Richter editorial@thenownews.com Another week, another batch of awards and international recognition for 12-yearold Anmore phenom Miranda Andersen. This time the young documentary filmmaker has been named an Eco-Hero by Action for Nature, a San Francisco based non-profit that encourages young people to take action to better their environments. And not two weeks later, Miranda was also nominated for a Me to We award for her tireless work in putting others before herself. Both awards are fine and well for Miranda, but the real value is getting to spread the word about the environmental causes she so keenly champions on film. “I was amazed. I think it’s great. I always like to get more recognition out to all these environmental issues that are so important and so many people don’t know about,” the deferential auteur said. For her Eco-Hero award, Andersen received a $100 honourarium and you’ll never guess what she has it earmarked for. “I’m going to put it into my savings to get better filming equipment. I have really low-tech stuff. It works for now but in the future, I really want to upgrade to something even better,” she said. Miranda is in the final stages of gathering footage for her latest documentary. In it she explores the concept of “nature deficit disorder” — the notion that society is suffering as a direct result of its avoidance of and ambivalence towards nature, and how that relationship works

For the doc, she travelled to San Diego to interview Richard Louv, the man who coined the phrase. “It’s basically talking about how kids and adults aren’t getting outdoors enough today and therefore they don’t care about it,” she said. The message is in keeping with what Miranda has learned from Ruth Foster, a volunteer at the Mossom Creek Hatchery, as well as Miranda’s mentor and the subject of her first documentary film. “She got me started in filmmaking, basically,” Miranda said. “She told me that if you don’t know about something, you won’t care about it and you won’t

protect it.” Miranda said if she could offer just one piece of advice to protect the environment, it would be for people, young and old, to get out into nature and start falling in love with it. “Adults that want to protect the environment, they were always out in the environment at a young age … I’d say just getting outside. Doing small things. The small things always help. I know people always say that, but it’s true,” she said. Miranda’s yet-to-be titled documentary on nature deficit disorder should be out in August.

Students warned about summer job scams The Better Business Bureau is warning university and high school students looking for work this summer to be careful to avoid job scams. “Students are in a unique position where they may not have a lot of work experience, and applying for a job which requires no work experience and a high salary often sounds very enticing,” says Lynda Pasacreta, outgoing president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau of Mainland B.C. “The reality is these are closer to pyramid schemes rather than legitimate work opportunities.” Many Internet and newspaper ads have postings that make claims such as “Summer job: make $300 a day!” and “Last year our employees made $10,000 over the summer.” Here are 10 tip-offs that the “employment opportunity” could be a scam: 1. Big bucks for simple tasks. Watch out if they promise to pay you a lot of money for jobs that don’t seem to require much effort or skill. If it sounds too good to be true, it might be a scam. 2. Job offers out of nowhere from strangers. If they offer you a job without getting an application from you first, meeting you, or doing an interview, it’s probably a scam. Don’t hand your personal employment information to such folks (especially your Social Insurance Number). That could lead to identity theft. 3. Requests for up-front payments. If someone wants you to make an advance payment to “get in” on the ground floor of a new business opportunity — especially if it’s a big investment or you don’t have much information about the deal — this is a big red flag. Don’t do it. “Advance fee scams” are very common and they come in many varieties. 4. They ask you to wire the money. If you wire a payment

that is not their true location. Use an online tool like Google Street View, which shows photos of address locations. 9. They want you to buy a bunch of expensive stuff. If they expect you to make a major purchase of equipment, software, inventory or information in order to get started in business, be very careful. Often these are the most persuasive kinds of scams.

Scam artists offering fake jobs often ask applicants to wire payments, according to the Better Business Bureau. If you do, you’ll likely never see your money again. to somebody, it’s gone forever. Wire transfers of money are a convenient and perfectly legitimate service. But scam artists often ask you to wire payments (especially to destinations in other countries) because they know you won’t be able to get your money back. 5. High pressure to do it now. Don’t be in a hurry to accept an unsolicited offer of work, or to make a business investment, particularly if the other party is asking you to spend your money on the deal. Take your time. If somebody tries to convince you that this is a “limited time offer” and you have to act now, just tell them to forget it. Ignore anybody who pushes you to agree. High pressure is a big sign that something’s wrong. 6. Refusal to give you full details in writing. Ask for complete information in writing. Request proof of any claims. Look carefully at any documentation they provide to make sure it answers all your questions. If they won’t give details or don’t respond to questions, don’t do business with them.

about your next move?

7. References are missing or a bit suspicious. A real business should be able to give you many professional references — not just a few. Be sure to ask for references and check them yourself. Don’t be swayed by a few written testimonials that sound fabulous. Even if the references seem good, don’t make your decision based on references alone. Do a careful background check. For starters, try a web search on the company name and see what comes up. 8. Contact information is missing or doesn’t make sense. Be very cautious if a company is trying to get you to accept a job or do business, but seems to lack any established physical location with a real street address. A cellphone number and website address are not enough contact information. If there’s no street address, look out (post office boxes are not comforting — scammers often rent them, then move on quickly.) If there is an address, it’s worth taking a moment to check it on the Internet. It’s common for phony operations to claim they are at an address

WE’LL BE IN COQUITLAM, EXCHANGING THE OLD BC HYDRO METER ON YOUR HOME WITH A NEW SMART METER. BC Hydro is upgrading homes and businesses with new smart meters. Moving to a more efficient, modernized grid will help us meet the growing demand for electricity while continuing to deliver safe, reliable power throughout the province. Here’s what you can expect: ! Typically, meter installation will take place Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. PST. !

Online resources help parents find childcare Families now have easy access to information about childcare or early childhood development programs in their neighbourhoods, thanks to the launch of two online maps. The easy-to-navigate maps provide users with the name, address and contact information for more than 4,200 child-care programs and more than 1,300 early-years programs in communities throughout B.C., according to a press release from the province. “Having an open data catalogue of quality child-care centres and early learning programs in communities across the province will make things easier for parents and caregivers who are seeking these services,” said Wayne Robertson, chair of the Provincial Child Care Council. “Now, parents will be able to search online for a range of child-care and early learning options, and even get a street map view of where they are located.” Each map serves as a simple, one-stop-shop resource where parents can input their child-care or early-childhood development needs and get a map that lists local centres and programs. The child-care map displays licensed child-care providers in communities throughout the province, and allows parents to search by city, address and licence type. The child-care map also links to health authority inspection reports, which offer summaries of routine inspections of licensed childcare facilities. Users can either zoom in on a location, or enter their address to see which childcare services are available nearby. Parents can locate child care that meets their specific needs by searching based on type of care, hours of operation, languages spoken at the child care, and whether they offer meals or pickup service. The early years services map shows a variety of early childhood development services and programs, including

Family Resource Programs, Aboriginal early childhood development, Parent-Child Mother Goose, Seeds of Empathy and StrongStart BC. It also displays the locations

of Immigrant Settlement Services agencies to help new immigrant families connect with services in their community, and child care resource and referral centres,

Music and Memories Submitted by John Ford

These days I'm not as easily moved as I used to be, mostly because I stay away from situations that might activate my tear ducts. I've seen Carousel and The Sound of Music often enough to know when it's time to leave the room until the final chorus of You'll Never Walk Alone and Climb Every Mountain fades away. As for weddings, we haven't been invited to many lately although my wife continues to hope that one day one of our sons will surprise her, although she's well aware of the effect such an announcement might have on my heart rate. Last month however, I did one of my infrequent volunteer stints for Crossroads Hospice on the occasion of BC Bereavement Day. In conjunction with First Memorial Funeral Services the Hospice hosted its 11th annual "Celebrate Life" event, a memorial service for families and friends of loved ones who have died in the Hospice and in the community at large. Interspersed with readings and remembrances by Hospice staff and volunteers were songs by Coastal Sound Children's Choir, a group of singers aged nine to sixteen under the guidance of musical director Diana Clark. The choir had performed non-stop for a good half hour before the three o'clock start time, welcoming arrivals with the sound of their young voices in lovely harmonies and occasional solos. Selections during the service included Oscar Peterson's Hymn to Freedom, Simon and Garfunkel's Bridge Over Troubled Waters, each piece carefully chosen to reflect the spirit of the occasion and conducted and performed with a reverence and passion that did nothing to mask the talents and enthusiasm of the performers. After closing remarks by Crossroads' Bereavement Services Coordinator Castine Breckwoldt the choir began to sing A Blessing arr. By Katie Bart One by one the singers left the risers and walked among the assembled mourners. Each singer stopped in front of one of the bereaved, took and held their hands and sang directly to the individual before them.

I found myself overwhelmed by the courage of these young people and filled with admiration for those who direct and guide them. I know from my training in hospice work that it's not always easy to communicate effectively with the bereaved and it must be doubly difficult for anyone not used to doing so. Hopefulness for the future seems an appropriate reaction to the presence in our community of the Coastal Sound Music Academy and its ilk. No doubt those who attended our "Celebrate Life" service would echo my sentiments.

Make sure to nominate it for the 2012 Pride of PoCo Garden Awards before the deadline on June 29. The PoCo Garden Club and the City of Port Coquitlam are encouraging Port Coquitlam residents to nominate their favourite local gardens for the 16th-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 and 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. Nomination forms are available at all civic buildings and online at www.portcoquitlam. ca/gardenawards. To place a nomination, call 604-927-5480, fax nomination forms to 604-927-5408, drop off or mail forms to City Hall at 2580 Shaughnessy St., Port Coquitlam, B.C., V3C 2A8 or e-mail them to millerd@portcoquitlam.ca. Any resident or local business in Port Coquitlam is eligible for nomination, and the wide variety of categories is designed to 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 and 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.

Score Card

Adanacs’ sticks hit the mark in win over Ridge Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com For two periods, it looked like a role reversal of one hot team and one struggling squad. In the third, the Coquitlam Adanacs got back in the swing. The Western Lacrosse Association team picked up its third straight victory, defeating the Maple Ridge Burrards 13-8 Saturday at the Poirier Sports Centre. Over the first 40 minutes, the Burrards looked like a team on the move and hungry for its first win of the season. Seven unanswered goals in the final frame, however, earned the Adanacs the win. “We all know our offence has been struggling, our defence has been unreal and (goalie Nick) Rose has been standing on his head all year,” noted first-year forward Ryan Johnson. “Maybe (Maple Ridge goalie Blake) Duncan had a bad game but we were tossing the ball around it seemed the net was real big. It was time we snapped out of our slump.” When PoCo native Derek Low, tallied his second straight goal to give Maple Ridge an 8-6 lead at 20 seconds into the third, it looked like a loss may be in the cards for Coquitlam. But rookie Daniel McQuade found the top corner four minutes later and cued up a run that would see the Adanacs improve to 4-4-0 on the season. Dane Dobbie collected three goals, while the freshmen trio of Travis Cornwall, Johnson and McQuade counted two apiece. The Burrards dropped to 0-7-1, but got their first win of the season a day later against first place shareholder Burnaby. That describes how topsy-turvy this year’s WLA games are. Coquitlam, who finished last in 2011, have rolled off three straight victories, knocking off last year’s league finalists New Westminster and Langley. Prior to that, they had lost four straight.  CONT. ON PAGE 23, see OFFENCE.

Coquitlam’s Jisoo Keel will have home-course advantage when the CN Canadian Women’s Open golf championship tees off Aug. 20 to 26 at the Vancouver Golf Club. The Gleneagle Secondary student posted the lowest amateur score at last year’s Canadian Women’s Open.

Golf’s big names coming to Coquitlam Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com

T

he field is already getting long with impressive names. The course, meanwhile, has never looked better. With the announcement that defending champion Brittany Lincicome, currently ranked 13th among the top women’s golfers in the world, will be coming to Coquitlam, the stakes have been raised for all competitors at the 2012 CN Canadian Women’s Open Aug. 20 to 26 at the Vancouver Golf Club. The Coquitlam private club will be the focus of the women’s golf world that week as Lincicome, No. 4-ranked Suzann Pettersen, No. 8 Cristie Kerr, Michelle Wie and Katherine Hull will

each be vying to repeat as Canadian Women’s Open winner. Current Rolex world ranking leader Yani Tseng of Taiwan is also confirmed as one of the tournament’s 156 players. The Canadian field will include Lorie Kane and Coquitlam’s own Jisoo Keel, who as a 17-year-old amateur, will be appearing in her second Canadian Women’s Open. With $2 million US prize money — including $300,000 to the winner — officials expect the tournament will attract most of the tour’s top names. Having the tour in Coquitlam at the VGC is a great honour, noted club member and tournament volunteer director Paul Batchelor. “The process started a couple of years ago and ideally we were looking at trying to have it for our 100th

anniversary celebration in 2010, but apparently they had already committed to another venue,” noted Batchelor. “When they offered us 2012 we jumped at it.” It’s the third time that the VGC has hosted the national championship — with the formerly known du Maurier Classic here in both 1988 and 1991. For a veteran like Kane, who played in the ’91 Open, the course will be played differently, Batchelor noted. In both previous stops, the course was played reverse, with the ninth hole becoming the 18th. This time around the course will be played in its regular formation. And with three holes having undergone major renovations, the challenges will be plenty. “I believe the front nine will give up some birdies, but I like to call it Vancouver Golf Club’s Amen

Corner as the 14th to 18th holes,” said Batchelor. “They are all par fours, they are all strong par fours, so the player who wins this tournament has to be strong on those ending holes.” One player who will have familiarity on her side will be Keel, who locked up an exemption earlier this spring by winning a CN Canadian Women’s tour stop in Richmond. A member of the Canadian women’s national team, Keel last year was awarded the Marlene Stewart Streit low amateur medal at the Open after posting a four-day tally of four-overpar 292. “[Keel] made the cut last year and she’s going to do wonders here,” enthused Batchelor. “We’ve given Jisoo playing privileges here at  CONT.

Adanacs, Saints keep winning

Canada collects World Cup rowing gold

Canada’s women’s eight rowing team demonstrated again the mettle necessary for the upcoming London Olympics, winning at the Samsung World Rowing Cup in Germany on the weekend. The team, which includes Port Moody’s

Krista Guloien, edged out Romania with a time of 6:19.31, three seconds faster than third place Great Britain. A month earlier in Switzerland, the squad fell to the No. 1-ranked U.S. by just .03 of a second in another World Rowing Cup event.

Vancouver Golf Club so she practices and plays here when she has the opportunity. She’s going to know the course quite well and I think she’s going to be excited to play in front of her hometown fans.” Another large part of the CN Canadian Women’s Open is its charity tie-in, the CN Miracle Match, which raises funds for children’s hospitals across Canada. This tournament’s chosen recipient is the

B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation, and CN executive vice-president Sean Finn said his target is to see the fund surpass last year’s $2.1 million raised for his hometown Montreal Children’s Hospital. He noted that donations made between May 8 and Aug. 26 will be matched by CN Miracle Match, to benefit B.C. Children’s Hospital Foundation. For ticket and event information or to donate to the CN Miracle Match, go to www.cncanadianwomensopen.com.

With a near-full roster finally on board, the Coquitlam junior Adanacs went out and added even more to the mix. The B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League team acquired sniper Corey Shires from the Nanaimo junior Timbermen last week, picking up a talented lefthanded stick for future considerations. At the same time, sniper and 2010 Minto Cup MVP Robert Church returned to town after wrapping up his junior year at Drexel University. Both of them are expected to provide a sizeable impact with the club, which sits first overall with an 11-3 record. “Shires is a lefty sitting fourth in the league [in] points. He fills a big gap we have in our lefties and will be a huge addition to our roster,” noted vice-president Garrett Ungaro. Church, meanwhile, has stepped up immediately and added his usual offensive punch. In Saturday’s 11-6 trumping of the Delta Islanders, the 21-year-old counted two goals and five assists. Also racking up seven points was linemate Reid Reinholdt, with Matthew Dinsdale and Ben McIntosh chipping in a pair apiece. A day later against the Timbermen, Dinsdale cashed in a pair and set up five others, while

Wesley Berg posted a six-point game. Against his former team, Shires counted a pair of goals. The 19-year-old Nanaimo native is rumoured to be in Coquitlam for just this season. His father, Kevin Shires, was a former senior Adanac. “Coquitlam is hurting for lefties right now, so me being a lefty is pretty good,” he told the Nanaimo Daily News. Meanwhile, the Port Coquitlam Saints are moving into a newer bracket, thanks to a current four-game win streak. The Saints picked up two more wins — beating Langley 14-11 and Burnaby 10-6 — to move into fourth spot with an impressive 8-6 record. Against Burnaby on Sunday, PoCo’s Richard Lachlan tallied three times and team scoring leader Nash Harrison chipped in four assists. Brock Whiteley added a pair of markers. Lachlan netted two goals and four assists in the win over Langley, while Connor Goodwin scored twice and set up three others. Coquitlam plays host to second-place Delta tonight, 7:30 p.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre. On Thursday, New West visits PoCo, followed Friday by Burnaby. Both games are 8 p.m. at the PoCo Rec Centre.

Offence finds range against Burrards  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 22.

Johnson thinks the club’s approach has been strong throughout the ups and downs, but has really benefited from the confidence acquired during the recent run. “It’s all about the environment in the room, it’s starting to turn more positive,” he said. “[In] the four-game slide, we had everyone starting to get down on everyone but now it’s much more positive.” Head coach Bob Salt said the effort wasn’t there over the

first 40 minutes, but everything came together in the third. “We’re missing some really key guys out there, (Maple Ridge) were yapping at us and knocking at us and things could have turned goofy. We didn’t play well and it’s a fine line,” said Salt. He noted the return of Dobbie from the injured list has been a big boost, but that the player continues to get sharper as he rounds into form. “He’s getting more fit. Dobs

can do a lot of things but he’s got to get way better physically,” said Salt of the twotime league scoring champion. “Dobbie’s one of the best players in the world, but if he’s all banged up and out of shape they’ll just pound the heck out of him.” The Adanacs, who played without injured veterans Kevin Olson, Curtis Olliffe and Steve McKinlay, visits Burnaby on Friday, before hosting the Mann Cup finalists from Langley on Saturday, 7 p.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre.

SUDOKU

BCIT works. Join the team at one of BC’s top employers and help develop the next generation of skilled British Columbians. BCIT is more than an educational institution. It’s a community of people who work collaboratively to create an engaging, healthy, and inclusive environment for staff and students. With a generous salary, vacation, and benefits package, we’ve got you covered.

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!

PUZZLE ANSWERS ON SEPARATE PAGE
