Teacher acquitted of sex assault charges Parents disappointed by verdict, but hope case will lead to changes in reporting of similar allegations Jeremy Deutsch A former Coquitlam substitute teacher is a free man after being acquitted on several sexual assault charges relating to allegations made by five former students dating back to 2008. On Monday, a provincial court judge in Port Coquitlam found Aleksandr Plehanov not guilty on a total of 11 charges, including five charges of sexual assault, five of sexual interference and one of criminal harassment. In his decision, Judge David St. Pierre said Crown failed to meet the burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt. The judge wrote he had no doubt the children who testified attempted to provide their evidence in an honest fashion, but it is impossible to conclude whether the contact was

Aleksandr Plehanov incidental or could be characterized and proven as criminal. “It was clear from the evidence that Mr. Plehanov either was completely ignorant or ignored the parameters and boundaries that were expected of a teacher by the school board and/or the teaching college

relating to appropriate contact between a teacher and students,” the judge wrote. “It has to be remembered that this is a criminal case and behaviour that may breach the standards and expectations created by employers and teaching colleges in the teaching environment does not necessarily equate with behaviour that is properly characterized as criminal in nature.” The alleged victims were all in grades 2 and 3, were seven or eight years old at the time of the alleged incidents and came from three different schools in School District 43. The alleged incidents date back to January 2008. Outside the courthouse, Plehanov’s lawyer Lisa Helps said her client was “ecstatic” at the decision, noting he had maintained his innocence from the beginning. “In the circumstances, that [the judge’s decision] was the right thing

to do,” she said. Helps said she had no indication of her client’s future plans. Meanwhile, the parents of the children, who can’t be identified, said they were disappointed by the verdict. One mother said she would have to carefully explain the verdict to her child. “All these children did the right thing. They went home, told their parents — they talked about it,” she said. “I will definitely reassure my daughter she did the right thing and it took a lot of strength and courage to do that.” The parents also said they hope the case will lead to changes not only in the local school district, but in others around the province when it comes to reporting protocols around similar allegations. But it was also clear the lengthy trial had taken a toll on the parents.

“I’m tired of talking about this and thinking about this. I just want to not come here [the courthouse] again,” one mother said. If Plehanov wants to continue his teaching career, he likely faces an uphill battle to get back in the classroom. The B.C. College of Teachers, which is now the Teacher Regulation Branch (TRB) under the Ministry of Education, suspended his teaching certificate in 2010. A ministry spokesperson noted that just because Plehanov has been acquitted on all charges doesn’t mean he automatically gets to teach again. The TRB process was suspended pending the outcome of the trial. The ministry spokesperson said Plehanov would have to apply for a disciplinary hearing, in which a TRB commissioner would decide his fate. There is no timeline for when the date of such a hearing would be set.

New campaign to fight bullies Jeremy Deutsch It just got a whole lot tougher to be a bully in Port Coquitlam. On Tuesday, against the backdrop of Riverside Secondary students and community leaders, an aggressive anti-bullying campaign was launched. The Be Someone campaign includes a number of initiatives and measures to curb the scourge of bullying. Among the initiatives is a first-in-B.C. anti-bullying bylaw for Port Coquitlam. Essentially, the bylaw will define bullying and give police powers to hand out tickets for those caught taking part in the act. The fines will start at $200 and escalate to $2,000. However, the point of the bylaw is not to collect money but to educate and change behaviour. As part of the bylaw, an anti-bullying course is being developed through the PoCo Youth Society. Those who get fines will be able to take the course to have their tickets ripped up. The bylaw will get its first reading at the Dec. 10 PoCo council meeting. But Mayor Greg Moore, who was at times emotional during the launch event, suggested the bylaw alone won’t end bullying.  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see BUSINESSES WILL DISPLAY.

Christy Clark gives budget warning

Premier says her government will balance the budget, but adds that ‘it won’t be pretty’ Jeremy Deutsch


he bright sky over the Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club was in stark contrast to the message brought by Premier Christy Clark during a stop in the Tri-Cities Tuesday. Clark told a packed room of TriCities Chamber of Commerce members gathered for a luncheon at the golf club her government is determined to balance the budget in 2013. However, she made it clear tough choices are on the horizon to get to that balance. “I want to give you the heads up,” Clark told the crowd. “It won’t be pretty.” Today (Wednesday), B.C.’s finance minister is releasing the province’s quarterly financial report. Though the premier didn’t divulge the details of the report, she noted due to global economic uncertainty, commodity revenues are down this year. Clark stressed the last quarter has been a difficult one for the province, making it a hard task to balance the budget. “Nonetheless, we’re going to do it,” she said, noting her government’s plan to stick to the balanced budget law. Clark also told the chamber crowd her government has no plans to cut spending on health care and education, but would do what it takes to get the books out of the red. “We cannot borrow now and leave the debt for our kids and grandkids to pay off,” she said in a nearly hourlong speech. “We have to control our spending.” The premier’s appearance was billed as an “important speech” in a media release sent out Monday.

Lisa King/NOW

Premier Christy Clark spoke to a Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce crowd on Tuesday. Clark noted the province paid down $1.2 billion on its debt in 2012, which works out to about $400 for the average family in B.C. She also defended her own government’s record when questioned about millions of dollars being spent on advertising, including $15 million to promote the BC Jobs Plan. Clark argued people depend on consumer confidence in order for busi-

nesses to continue to function, adding the ads are intended to help B.C. residents understand they can have confidence in the economy compared to people in other places. But PoCo NDP MLA Mike Farnworth, who was also listening to the speech, wasn’t buying her argument. He said cutting the Jobs Plan ads would be an easy choice to prove fiscal discipline.

“I think it was a bit of a start to beat the drums in the run-up to the election and there was nothing new in what we heard today,” Farnworth told The NOW. As for a balanced budget, Farnworth said every government wants to balance the books, but wouldn’t say if the NDP would commit to meeting the budget law.

Coquitlam councillor to seek MLA job Jeremy Deutsch Coquitlam residents could be losing two city councillors to provincial politics come springtime. Coun. Selina Robinson locked up the NDP nomination in CoquitlamMaillardville over the weekend, while fellow councillor Linda Reimer has decided to jump into the fray, announcing her intentions to run under the Liberal banner in Port Moody-Coquitlam. Reimer, a two-time councillor, said she decided to run

Linda Reimer because she doesn’t want to see another NDP government elected. “So I’m doing it out of a sense of duty,” she told The NOW on Monday.

Reimer said she’s also running to ensure the economy continues to move forward, suggesting the Liberals put a lot of effort into stabilizing the economy after the recession of 2008. The long-time Coquitlam resident finished third overall in the last civic election, collecting 9,093 votes. Though Reimer lives in the constituency next door, she chose Port Moody-Coquitlam because she sees it as a winnable riding. Though NDP MLA and former Port Moody mayor Joe Trasolini easily won the seat in last April’s byelection, she argued byelections tend not to

represent the sentiment in a general election. Reimer argued voters tend to vote along party lines in a provincial election rather than for a big name. “The demographics in Port Moody support a BC Liberal government,” Reimer said. Prior to Trasolini’s victory, the Liberals won the riding in several successive elections. Reimer is the first candidate to declare her intentions in the upcoming election for the Liberals in the Tri-Cities. She said she expects to get the nomination unopposed, though no date for a nomination meeting has been set.

As for the potential she might have to step down midway through her term on council, Reimer said she only decided to put her name forward a couple of weeks ago after being approached by the party. “It’s a very important and difficult decision to make,” she said, adding she had every intention of finishing her term on council when she ran in 2011. “It’s not an opportunity that comes up every day.” Meanwhile, Robinson was acclaimed as the NDP candidate in CoquitlamMaillardville at a nomination meeting Sunday.

Businesses will display anti-bullying decals  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

“You need to come with a community approach so that we’re all in this together,” he said. That’s where the business community has gotten involved. The program will be visible through window decals placed in businesses and public areas alerting young people that those businesses and community facilities are safe places for anyone being bullied. Gary Mauris, the president and founder of Port Coquitlam-based Dominion Lending Centres who spearheaded the program, said he doesn’t want to wait for the provincial government to take action on bullying.

The first annual Snowflake Walk to End Bullying, which is aimed at raising funds and donations for bullying awareness and mental health issues, is planned for Dec. 9, starting at 1 p.m. at the Port Coquitlam Recreation Complex. Carol Todd said the Be Someone program is the best gift her daughter Amanda could have received on what would have been her 16th birthday. “What we’re saying to everyone is bullying and bullying behaviour is not welcome here,” she said. The hope by all involved in the program is it will be a blueprint for other communities and cities across Canada to follow. As for students, they think their peers will

“We need the entire community involved,” he said, noting he would like to see the province allocate funds for a provincial bullying strategy given to local groups in each community. The Be Someone campaign, which uses a snowflake as its symbol, started in the wake of the death of Port Coquitlam teen Amanda Todd, who took her life last month after years of being bullied. “Princess Snowflake” was the nickname Amanda’s mother Carol had given her. The program, which also has the support of the RCMP and school district, contains several other initiatives including online resources for victims of bullying and a bullying-help textmessaging platform.

while crews mopped up. In all, four suites in the building, which was built in the 1960s, suffered damage, including two adjacent units that were harmed by smoke. Mayberry said there was significant damage to the unit where the fire originated, pegging the cost at about $50,000. Emergency social services were called in to deal with affected homeowners and tenants in the building. Though the fire is under investigation, Mayberry said it does not appear suspicious.

Preliminary OK for controversial parking plan John Kurucz Despite trepidation among virtually everyone around the table and in the audience, Coquitlam council moved closer to adopting a far-reaching parking strategy after a marathon public hearing Monday night. The new bylaw pertains to developments near future Evergreen Line stations — in neighbourhoods like Lougheed, Burquitlam and City Centre referred to as “shoulder areas” — and features some parking reductions, coupled with other programs that would help offset parking gaps in other parts of the city. Among the highlights of the plan is a reduction in the ratio of parking

stalls for two bedroom units — the shift calls for 1.35 parking stalls, down from the previous rate of 1.5. The plan also includes a voluntary payment-in-lieu parking program that will see developers pay $20,000 for every parking space not provided above the five-per-cent requirement of off-street parking. In order to qualify for the program, developers will be asked to provide a transportation demand strategy that includes a number of provisions to get people out of cars: transit passes, co-op car parking stalls and end-of-trip facilities for cyclists like showers and bike racks. The revenue from that voluntary program will then be directed towards a fund that will finance other parking initiatives in the city,

but not necessarily in areas in which the parking problems were cited. That point was a source of contention for residents in particular. “We fear that any parking reduction around station areas will find its way onto our quiet streets,” said Oakdale Neighbourhood Association member Ben Craig. “We don’t think it’s possible to reduce parking requirements around stations without a comprehensive policy to manage and even restrict parking in the surrounding shoulder areas.” Hildegard Richter, a director with the association, suggested the city move to a model used in places like Vancouver, where time-limited parking is used, as is resident-only parking requirements.

Urban Development Institute (UDI) policy analyst Patrick Santoro questioned the kind of performance indicators that would be used to gauge the program, while also suggesting that the proposed fee attached to the parking-in-lieu program be reduced to $15,000. “The UDI believes that the city’s proposed parking policies will hinder the ability to have affordable multi-family development along the Evergreen Line corridor,” he said. Catherine Mohoruk, the city’s transportation planning manager, noted Coquitlam’s proposed fee structure is among the lowest in the region, as parking-in-lieu programs in places like New Westminster and Steveston charge between $35,000 and $25,000 per stall.

Highland Drive resident Janet Klopp suggested parking in the shoulder areas should be opened up to all Coquitlam residents to allow for easier access to SkyTrain routes. “I’m sorry if we end up in the shoulder neighbourhoods and clogging up their streets because that’s really not fair to them either,” she said. “But the streets do belong to all of us, all of us in Coquitlam.” Council ultimately passed second and third readings of the bylaw, with acting mayor Lou Sekora and Coun. Mae Reid voting in opposition. Mayor Richard Stewart was absent. The bylaw will now go back to staff for further clarification before council votes on the fourth and final reading.

Developer wants to add 1,000 units to project John Kurucz Citing increased construction and development costs, members of the Beedie Group have asked for substantive changes to what will be Coquitlam’s largest waterfront development. Dave Gormley, Beedie’s vice-president of land development, appeared before council in committee Monday asking for up to 1,000 additional units to be added to the Fraser Mills development in south Coquitlam. And while there would be an increase in the number of units, the units themselves would be smaller, dropping in size to about 825 square feet from about 1,100 square feet. The proposed changes would also translate into an additional 1,000 people living at the 89-acre site — a jump that would see between

8,000 to 9,000 living there as opposed to the original estimate of about 7,000 to 8,000 residents. “Over the last couple of years, we’ve been monitoring the residential market conditions and we’re discovering the average unit size is decreasing quite significantly over the last five to seven years,” Gormley said, adding that, to make the various projects affordable, the unit sizes of each one are getting smaller. Some councillors, however, don’t see the development playing out in that fashion, suggesting market trends in Vancouver, Burnaby or Surrey — areas well served by transit — don’t translate into the Coquitlam context. “I’m having difficulty because this is not like Metrotown,” said Coun. Mae Reid, a realtor by trade. “This is not like the city centre in Vancouver, and this

is not like Coquitlam Centre. In the city centres I expect the units can be smaller.” The majority of council wanted the Beedie proposal to be more flexible in order to allow a range of sizes that would accommodate all walks of life — retirees, singles, couples and families. Seniors and young families in particular were singled out in that context of the discussion, with some councillors saying the transition from a large house to a smaller unit would be difficult to make. “It’s impossible for [seniors] to go from a 4,000-square-foot house to a 700-square-foot apartment,” said Coun. Selina Robinson. Gormley noted his group may not need all of the 1,000 proposed units, but presented that number to council so they won’t have to come back before council to re-instigate a separate amendment process.

“When I come down to making a decision, I’m going to want the number to be a lot more precise,” said Coun. Neal Nicholson. “If we were dealing with it today, I’d have the feeling that I was writing a blank cheque and I’m not sure what I’m going to get come the end of the day.” Monday’s debate was meant for feedback and discussion only. City staff will now take council’s feedback and report back at some point early in

the new year. Mayor Richard Stewart was

absent from Monday’s meeting.

More concerns raised over forensic hospital Jeremy Deutsch A patient who had gone missing from the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Port Coquitlam has returned, but the incident has created concerns for the Kwikwetlem First Nation. Charles Albert Hansen, 60, was reported missing last Thursday as an unauthorized absence from the facility. A Canada-wide warrant had been issued for him for being unlawfully at large. By Friday night, he had returned to the hospital on his own. He is the fourth patient to go missing from the hospital since May of this year. And in this case, Hansen is the second person to go missing from the facility as an unauthorized absence in three months. But it appears this incident is the final straw for the Kwikwetlem First Nation, whose members live just a few hundred feet from the hospital. Chief Ron Giesbrecht said the band was not notified about Hansen’s disappearance from the hospital, noting he only heard about it through the media at 1 p.m. Friday. “This is unacceptable,” he told The NOW. “I’ve got elders in the community and kids in the com-

Charles Albert Hansen munity, and anything can happen to them.” Giesbrecht said he’s met with hospital staff about the issue in the past, but little has changed. He is calling for major changes to personnel working at the hospital, and asking Premier Christy Clark to step in and do something. “I’ve got no faith in the building next door at all anymore,” he said, adding the hospital has only notified the band of a missing patient within an hour once in the last 30 years. “We’re five minutes away from them. As soon as they know something happens, they should automatically notify us because we’re the first community to them.” The Provincial Health Services Authority, which oversees the hospital, released the following statement when asked for comment by The

NOW. “As a specialized hospital we are bound by provisions related to patient confidentiality, so we can’t go into detail about individual patient circumstances,” the statement read. “It is standard procedure to inform police whenever a patient is missing and that was done in this case. Staff at the hospital are working closely with the RCMP to locate this patient so that he can continue to receive appropriate treatment and supervision.” The authority also noted a review of the case would be completed. Earlier this year, two patients went missing on unescorted day passes. David Fomradas, 34, and Gregory Schleen, 49, went missing from the hospital within days of each other back in May. Schleen was picked up by Vancouver police in August, while Fomradas remains at large. In September, Matthew Mikolajczyk, 29, was reported missing from the hospital as an unauthorized absence. Police picked him up a few hours later in Vancouver.

Use Ioco lands for agriculture

Re: “Development of Ioco lands on city’s radar,” Friday, Nov. 16. By coincidence, the City of Port Moody is looking to hire a manager of sustainability at the same time the 650-acre Ioco industrial site has been designated a “special study area” for redevelopment. How might this south-sloping land be re-used to make the city more sustainable? One option might be to remediate the land for intensive organic agriculTo The ture. The owner, Devon Estates, is looking at redevelopment over 20 years. The transformation from industrial to agricultural might be accomplished by development density transfer. Residential and commercial developers in central Port Moody would be able to add density by buying it from Devon Estates. The land area “purchased” at Ioco would become public land.

Gradually, over 20 years, the Ioco property would become entirely public land; Devon Estates would receive fair compensation, and higher transit-friendly densities would be provided in central Port Moody. The leasing of the Ioco property for agricultural use would replace greenhouse gas emissions from importing food, and would capture carbon in the plants and green manures grown on the land.

Our View

Let’s dump this outdated institution


oes the monarchy make you proud to be Canadian? If you think that’s a bizarre question, you’re in good company, as a new poll commissioned by the Montreal-based Association for Canadian Studies indicates most of us no longer take pride in the Royal Family. According to the study — an online poll of 2,207 people surveyed during the week of Nov. 5 — just 39 per cent of respondents view the monarchy as a source of personal or collective pride, while 59 per cent are unimpressed. In fact, 32 per cent find the monarchy “not at all important” — the single most popular response. While nostalgia can be soothing and for many of us, the Queen is a likeable and even admirable person, it’s time for Canada to dump the monarchy. The Royal Family should be a source of pride for Britons, not Canadians. Decades ago, we justified our ties to the royals as something that made us “different from the Americans.” Since then, we’ve developed a stronger sense of ourselves as a sovereign nation, and no longer need to cling to another country’s royal family for our identity. Those who love the monarchy are free to read up on Will and Kate’s quest for a baby, enjoy the pomp and circumstance of royal weddings and cringe as Prince Harry is caught in yet another scandal. For the rest of us, though, the Windsors are no more Canadian than U.S. President Barack Obama and the charming First Lady Michelle Obama, even though it’s fun to keep tabs on all of them. Queen Elizabeth has had a great reign, but it’s winding down. When it ends, let’s focus on Canadian accomplishments — from a universal health-care system and a stable economy to a tolerant population and a peaceful image abroad. The monarchy? It will always have a place in our history books.

another advantage in a riding that has a large IndoCanadian community. The NDP candidate got almost 26 per cent of the vote in 2009, which was nowhere near van Dongen’s winning total, of course. But look at it this way. About 9,500 people voted for the B.C. Liberals last time, and about 4,200 voted for the NDP. If the NDP can boost its total vote by about 1,000 people (a safe proposition, given the party’s rise in the polls and the ever-changing demographic of the riding, which is becoming younger), it can achieve victory if 3,300 or so B.C. Liberal supporters either vote for van Dongen or someone else. Given the party’s treatment of Gill, and van Dongen’s own personal popularity, such a scenario doesn’t seem far-fetched. There’s another reason the NDP may be gaining confidence in Abbotsford-South. The latest Angus Reid poll shows the B.C. Liberals continue to have trouble hanging onto their supporters from the previous election. About one-third of previous B.C. Liberal voters say they won’t back the party this time around. In Abbotsford-South that translates to about 3,200 voters — about the number the NDP needs to pull out a victory. Given the B.C. Liberal party’s internal problems in the riding, I suspect the number of disaffected party voters may be even higher. This all adds up to making Abbotsford-South a riding to watch next May 13.

Letters NHL strike hurts league While the NHL owners and the NHLPA play a seemingly endless game of “who will blink first,” the fans are left to twist in the wind. The so-called negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) have become nothing more than a mockery. It is evident that both sides have forgotten who, ultimately, foots the bill for these millionaires and billionaires to continue lining their pockets. It is, of course, the fans. It is also evident that both sides have a callous disregard for the livelihoods of the thousands of employees that have been affected by their greed and stubbornness — those people who work in the hockey rinks, the souvenir shops, the parking lots, the restaurants and bars and a myriad of other related industries. They have all been forced to tighten their belts while this charade continues to drag on. And, when hockey is finally played in the rinks across North America, the average fans and their families will be hard pressed to afford to buy a ticket. The posturing by both sides only serves to bolster the already inflated egos of Mr. Bettman and Mr. Fehr. This ongoing saga has seen the 1994-95 season shortened and the 2004-05 season cancelled altogether. The current stalemate will ensure that there will be consequences that will be felt for years to come. Will the NHL be able to support a 30team league following yet another shortened or cancelled season? Several hockey franchises, particularly those in some of the southern states, are already on thin ice. Will their fan base become increasingly bored and disillusioned? Are the successful franchises prepared to shore up those that are floundering? Will large corporate sponsors continue to throw good money after bad by supporting a league that continues to bite the hand that feeds it?

These and other questions will be answered in the coming months and years. In the meantime, the remaining fans that are still loyal to this troubled league can only sit and wait. They can only speculate about ticket prices — not whether they will increase, but rather, by how much. Terry Godfrey Coquitlam

Animals can offer so much Although there’s much justified outrage at the unbelievably, atrociously cruel acts committed against the North Vancouver sled dogs, such acts will likely happen again — if not in B.C. or Canada, then somewhere else on this continent or planet. To The It’s in humanity’s fundamental mindset, as a whole, to place animals on a lower category of life than humanity and thus less worthy of compassionate treatment. It began as early as the Bible/Torah (and perhaps even the Koran), all of which promote the sacrifice of animals solely for the alleged spiritual benefit of humanity. But while this travesty continues, the beautiful reality, as most loving pet owners already know, is that a healing, symbiotic-like relationship can exist between both the (usually domesticated) animal and its human “host.” Indeed, petting a dog or cat, for example, acts as a soothing, perhaps health-improving massage to that animal; meanwhile, the loving contact can reduce the human host’s high blood pressure, amongst bettering some of his/ her other health matters. The sad reality, however, is that such mutually beneficial couplings are nowhere near as prevalent as they really could and definitely should be. Frank G. Sterle, Jr. White Rock

Candidate should resign Now that Selina Robinson has officially been acclaimed as the NDP candidate for CoquitlamMaillardville, and will obviously be devoting all of her energy toward the upcoming provincial election, she should show some integrity and respect for the people of this community and resign her council seat so that a municipal byelection can be called. Despite the huge expense involved for us taxpayers, which could range anywhere from $150,000 to $250,000 based on past byelections, it is the only honourable thing for her to do at this point. The people of this community deserve to have someone on council who is willing and able to give 100 per cent to the job, something Robinson swore an oath to do just one year ago. Editor It is important to note that during last November’s municipal election, Robinson stated publicly that she would not do what she has now done; namely, leave council for a provincial or federal seat and cause a municipal byelection. Along with myself and all other council candidates, Robinson was asked this very specific, very direct byelection question at an all-candidates meeting sponsored by the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce. All of the candidates, including Robinson, said no, they would not cause a byelection, and the related expense for taxpayers, during their term on council by seeking a provincial or federal seat. Clearly, Robinson is not a woman of her word on this point. And as with so many other NDP opportunists, such as Dawn Black and Fin Donnelly who jumped ship and caused costly byelections, Robinson has failed to put the people of this community first and stick to the job she was elected to do. Sadly, the only lame defence she has

managed to put forward for herself is that the opportunity to run for MLA only presented itself recently when MLA Diane Thorne announced her retirement. So what? She told the community she would serve her full term and not cause a byelection. She made a commitment. She stated publicly that she would not do what she has now done. It is time for Robinson to do the right thing and resign from council. She needs to recognize that she cannot serve two masters. Yes, in resigning she will be placing a huge byelection cost on the backs of Coquitlam taxpayers, which she said she would not do. However, as the NDP opportunist she has now shown herself to be, the cost to Coquitlam taxpayers in the pursuit of her own interests does not seem to count for very much to Robinson.

Art demo tonight

Marney-Rose Edge’s penchant for floral patterns will be the focus of tonight’s (Wednesday’s) Art Focus Artists’ Association demon-

stration in Port Coquitlam. Slated to run from 7 to 9 p.m. at The Outlet in Leigh Square, the free demo will focus on the intricacies of capturing and conveying floral patterns in watercolour paintings. Born in New Zealand, Edge moved to Metro Vancouver in 1992 and has enjoyed a career spanning more than 30 years. “Light and colour are energetic components of my paintings that stimulate the senses,” she said in an e-mail to The NOW. “The excitement comes when the layers of paint build strong contrasts and the viewer can feel the fragility of a flower with their eyes and sense the perfume around them when they take a deep breath.”

Craft sale Friday

The 32nd-annual Coquitlam Christmas Craft Sale will be staged over a three-day span

beginning this Friday (Nov. 30) at the Poirier Community Centre. More than 120 B.C. artisans will be in attendance, selling homemade goodies, as well as creations made of glass, ceramics, textiles and wood, and skincare and houseware items. The sale runs from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is $2 for adults and $1 for children and seniors. See for details.

Caring for the diabetic foot J

ohn Wells, a 65-yearold semi-retiree living in Richmond, knew his diabetes could impact the health of his feet but he never gave too much thought to foot care until a trip to Europe four years ago. After each day of sightseeing, his feet were overheating and he experienced a painful burning sensation. Although Wells didn’t know it at the time, he was suffering from endstage bilateral Charcot joint disease — a painful condition that causes the middle part of the foot to fracture and collapse over time and then re-fuse. His foot problems were a complication of diabetes. “Foot problems are the leading cause of hospitalization for adults living with diabetes. An estimated 2.3 million Canadians currently live with diabetes and up to 24 per cent of those are

at risk of developing a foot ulcer that will result in the amputation of a foot or leg,” says Ryan Robinson, a Canadian certified pedorthist and president of the Pedorthic Association of Canada. “However, with daily foot care and proper shoe selection the majority of foot problems diagnosed in people with diabetes can been avoided.” Upon his return home, Wells sought the advice of a podiatrist who referred him to a Canadian certified pedorthist, an orthotic and footwear expert. After a detailed assessment, his pedorthist created custom-made orthotics and arranged the making of custom-made shoes, and his foot pain is now behind him. Despite the newfound vigilance about his feet and his custommade footwear, he still occasionally experiences foot ulcers, which he seeks

treatment for right away. Regular foot examinations, a daily foot-care routine and proper shoe selection are vital to maintaining the foot health of those living with diabetes. More information is available online at www. Foot-care pointers If you live with diabetes: • Inspect your feet daily for redness, swelling, broken skin, sores or bleeding. See your doctor immediately if any of these problems occur. • To protect your feet from injury, wear shoes inside and outdoors. • Wash your feet with soap and warm water every day, but do not soak them. • Avoid heat pads or hot water bottles. With reduced sensation caused by diabetes it is hard to tell if the water is too hot and your feet may burn. • Avoid socks with heavy

seams, as they can irritate the skin and lead to ulcers. • Avoid tight constrictive socks and clothing that can limit blood flow to the extremities. –

Sometimes a break is what you really need of checking off very little, my to-do list is expanding. On top of all the Christmas preparations, I’m behind on my work, need to catch up on laundry, have to re-book the appointments that got missed, the house is even more dishevelled than usual and with everybody’s germs whizzing about, I am staving off the urge to fumigate the whole place and have instead taken the unusual step of bringing out the anti-bacterial products. Here’s hoping everybody gets healthy and back to school this week so this mama can get back on track. While I might well be in a hurry to see the back of 2012, I truly don’t want to get through the rest of this year in a somewhat frenzied blur and miss out on actually enjoying what is a most magical season. That said, while I might not like the level of inactivity I’ve enjoyed over the past week, I’m guessing that a month from now I’ll be very ready to put my feet up and do nothing for a week or so. • Clare Adams is a TriCities mom.

Girls rally for B.C. volleyball court order The top 16 teams in girls AAAA volleyball will take Port Coquitlam by storm this week, while Simon Fraser University pays tribute to a local coaching legend. GIRLS GOT GAME The B.C. AAAA senior girls volleyball championships, starting Thursday, 10:20 a.m. at both Riverside and Terry Fox secondaries. The tournament continues Friday and Saturday. The final goes 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Riverside (2215 Reeve St., PoCo). ONE MORE MARCH It’s come down to one game for the Terry Fox junior Ravens, as they face the St. Thomas More Knights for the B.C. junior football championship, Saturday 12:30 p.m. at BC Place. In a preview of this final, undefeated Fox edged STM 18-12 earlier this season. KICKING IT UP The Coquitlam Metro-Ford Wolves got back in the win column last week, and now take aim at the Central City Rovers on Saturday. The Rovers sit in fourth spot in the Vancouver Metro premier circuit, three better than the Wolves. All the more reason for Coquitlam to play hungry, 3 p.m. at Town Centre East. Also on tap this week the Centennial Centaurs senior boys basketball team holds its home opener on Friday, 7 p.m., when they host Delta (570 Poirier St., Coquitlam). In hockey, the Coquitlam Express take to the ice and play the Trail Smoke Eaters, Saturday 7 p.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre.



Best rises past Ravens in B.C. final Dan Olson In a fitting duel against a familiar foe, the margin came down to one goal and little else. The Dr. Charles Best Blue Devils reclaimed the B.C. boys AAA soccer crown on Saturday by slipping past the Terry Fox Ravens 1-0 in Burnaby. Add a side order of revenge and you’ve got an enticing story — something lacking in Sunday’s Grey Cup game. “It was a fantastic day — I couldn’t begin to top it,” said Blue Devils head coach Giovanni Valente. “I can’t express how well prepared the boys were to play that game.” Preparation was a huge element in the contest, as both squads were playing their fifth game in three days. Fresh in both teams minds was a 3-1 Ravens win in the Fraser Valley semifinals. Fox, who were full marks for their march to the Valley final two weeks earlier, were no less motivated. In the end, the sole difference was Michael Mobilio’s strike midway through the opening half, earning Best its third B.C. title in four years. “It was a good build-up and good run by Michael (Mobilio), and a better through ball by (Tyler) Da Silva,” remarked midfielder Kyle Jones, who would earn the tourney’s Most Valuable Player award. Although the Blue Devils had an edge in play, Fox threatened a couple of times. A single goal didn’t look to be enough — which was a fact in North league play, where only one of 28 games finished with a single tally. “It could have come down to a number of possibilities but Naz (Best goalkeeper Nazzareno Russo) stood on his head,” noted Jones. The Blue Devils, who were banned from provincial competition last season due to an after-game incident following their championship victory in the 2010 B.C. final, put tremendous focus this year on demonstrating a sincere respect for the opposition and the game. “That was our No. 1 goal to start the season,” Valente said. “To show respect to the opposition and put our best effort on the pitch.” It’s exactly what they delivered, too. For the Ravens, who won a dramatic 3-2 penalty kick decision over Burnaby South a day earlier to advance to the final, fatigue began to add up. Goalkeeper Bryce Rickaby made two crucial saves in penalty kicks to lock up Fox’s berth into the final. “We stressed to the team to keep our play simple, make good decisions, and shut down their space by pressuring the ball,” recalled Fox coach John Murphy. “For the first 10, 15 minutes we did just that. Unfortunately we started to lose our focus and we made some costly turnovers in the middle of the pitch which ultimately lead to their one and only goal.” Among the standouts for the PoCo school in their long run to the final were seniors Jacob Kortenbach, Adam Hoo and Kevin Roh, and Gr. 11 Luke Griffin. Best bumped Tamanawis 2-1 in its semifinal and  CONT. ON PAGE 20, see BLUE DEVILS.

Junior Ravens set sights on Knights in B.C. final

They fell down but not out. The Terry Fox Ravens made the most of their second chances, rallying to defeat the Mount Douglas Rams 14-7 and move on to Saturday’s B.C. AAA junior football championship final.

Trailing 7-0 after a Mount Doug 95-yard TD pass, the Port Coquitlam crew bucked up and entered the second half with a firm focus. Quarterback Conner McKee kept the ball and rushed 51 yards to tie the game. On the

Rams’ next series, Maleek Womack-Stewart made a huge tackle to stop the opposition on the one-yard line. McKee would later record a clutch interception that lead to Mike West’s short-yard major to propel Fox into a

New faces boost Express fortunes

A few new pieces help put the Coquitlam Express back on track. The B.C. Hockey League squad acquired two veteran blueliners and added another from the injured ranks and rolled over the West Kelowna Warriors in a home-and-home series. Coquitlam needed overtime to collect a 5-4 victory on Friday, with Philip Zielonka cashing in the winner in the second extra session. A day later in the Okanagan, the Express dominated on offence and lambasted the Warriors 4-2 — in a score that flattered the home team. For the first time in 10 games, Coquitlam outshot its rival, having a heavy 51-26 edge in shots, en route to the victory. Over the previous nine games, the opposition had the upperhand in shots, posting 366 to the Express’ 244 — an average of 40 shots against a game over that streak. Coincidentally, the club notched just three wins over that span, while losing six times. Newcomers Bradley Ryan and Michael Maciag, physical yet puck saavy 20-year-old

defencemen acquired in separate deals, had an immediate impact on Friday, each recording an assist while helping slow down the opposition attack. Goals by Alexander Kerfoot, Brandon Morley, Zachary Pryzbek and John Siemer helped entertain 1,550 fans at the Poirier Sports Centre. In Kelowna, Zielonka netted the game’s first two goals and Maciag tallied what would be the eventual game-winner midway through the first. Pryzbek added some insurance in the second. To acquire six-foot-five Ryan, Coquitlam shipped the playing rights to Port Moody’s Jace Hennig, Mark Begert and future considerations to Prince George. They dealt more future considerations to Carleton Place of the Central Canada Hockey League for the six-foot Maciag. Ryan, who has secured a scholarship to Vermont, tallied five goals and 10 assists over 22 games with the Spruce Kings. Maciag had three goals and eight assists over 23 games in Ontario. The Express’ next game is Friday in Surrey. They host Trail on Saturday, 7 p.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre.

14-7 lead. West sacked the Mount Doug quarterback to halt their hopes for a late rally. “Our guys showed what being a Raven is about in the second half, giving up nothing, and putting two TDs on the board with pure guts and mental toughness,” Fox head coach Dave Lehman stated in a press release. McKee finished with 130 yards rushing on 13 carries, while West gained 88 yards

on 13 carries and Jan Cabrera another 87 yards on 13 carries. On six pass attempts, McKee completed three for 19 yards, while surrendering an interception. He would add seven tackles on defence and two interceptions of his own. West posted six tackles and Jordan Seney five and a half. Chipping in with five was Isaiah Stevens, while the tandem of Jason Kaya and Sean Stewart racked up three and a

half tackles apiece. Now, the Ravens’ focus turns to Saturday’s B.C. championship final where they face the St. Thomas More Knights (12:30 p.m. at BC Place). The two teams faced each other in October, with Fox winning 18-12. That was the Burnaby school’s lone loss in 2012 so far. The Ravens enter the final with a perfect 11-0 record, while STM is 10-1.

SFU women sharp in twin trouncing of Cal State The Simon Fraser University women’s basketball team handed Cal State Stanislaus Warriors back-to-back losses on the weekend. Capped by Saturday’s 76-46 triumph, SFU powered to their sixth win of the season. Nayo Raincock-Ekunwe led all Clan shooters with 16 points, and corralled 13 rebounds for her fifth double-double in seven games. Chalking up seven blocks, 10 rebounds and eight points was Rebecca Langmead. In their home opener on Friday, the Clan crushed the Warriors 95-52. Raincock-Ekunwe set the tone with 22 points. Their next game is Thursday, 7 p.m. in the

Burnaby campus’ West Gym against Saint Martin’s University.

Clan to honour Stewardson

The Simon Fraser University men’s basketball team will honour one of its best coaches on Saturday in its home opener. The Clan will pay tribute to former head coach Stan Stewardson, who piloted the squad for nine seasons, coaching the likes of Terry Fox and Jay Triano. They will be playing the defending NCAA Div. II champion Western Washington Vikings. Tipoff is at 7:30 p.m., with free admission for SFU students.

Blue Devils, Ravens shine in B.C. showdown  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 19.

staked out a solid lead on markers from Mobilio and Da Silva. The two Fraser Valley North league rivals and cross-district squads share more than territory — a number of players toil on the same club team, the Coquitlam Metro-Ford under16 Barca. That familiarity and energy provided an additional spark to what had been a tremendous run for both clubs. “We’ve played them two times before, playing to a tie

and losing to them (in the Fraser Valley tournament),” recalled Valente. “I didn’t need a big speech to remind them of what this meant — the winner will have this game over his clubmate (from the opposing team) forever.” Russo was named the tourney’s top goalkeeper, while teammate Tanner Roughead was among the Commissioners 11 all stars. Also selected to the all-star list were Adam Hoo of Fox and Heritage Woods’ Shaun Pilcher. Heritage Woods finished 12th overall with a 1-4 record.

The Best roster includes Grade 12s Michael Celio, Lucas Krivak, Leandro Lopez-Acosta, Jordan Magnuson, Roughead and captain Giovanni Carida, Gr. 11s Matthew Budai, Trevor Hallman, Felitche Hutchinson, Michael Mobilio, Ryan Mobilio, Carlos Nino, Taylor Witala, Jun Yamanaka, Da Silva, Jones and Russo, Gr. 10s Jacob Georgas, Tanner Jones, Levi McMillan, Graham Miller, Nikeil Mistry and Eddie Verones, and Gr. 9 Jared Horvath.

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!
