Highlights of the City of Coquitlam’s budget, released Monday, include more money for road repairs, the hiring of eight new firefighters, and funding for arts and culture.

Tax hike of 3.34 per cent in Coquitlam Increase is lowest in nearly a decade, and includes money for city archives, fire hall on Burke Mountain

Contractual inflation for city and RCMP staff figured into the increase, while public safety jkurucz@thenownews.com measures accounted for 30 per cent — or $1.5 million — of the new spending.

Business owners upset by tax bills City of Coquitlam says it cannot adjust final taxation numbers set by BC Assessment John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

F

or the second time in less than two years, a series of Coquitlam-based business owners are crying foul over what they feel are exorbitant and unjustified tax increases. And much like how the issue played out in the summer of 2011, all of the parties involved are point“I know what the ing the finger at somebody else. existing rules and The latest tax legislation are and it’s problem came to a wrong. It’s inequitable. head at Monday’s council in comIt’s not sustainable.” mittee meeting, when a southwest Coquitlam business Cynthia Aasen owner claimed her Coquitlam Business Owner taxes have shot up by 70 per cent over one year. Cynthia Aasen and her husband John head up the golf instruction business known as the 3D Golf Performance Centre, which is located in a complex at 228 Schoolhouse St. In her presentation Monday, Aasen claimed she was speaking on behalf of about a half dozen other businesses also located in her complex — fast-food chains, a spa and a home appliance shop, among others. According to Aasen, her business was charged about $14,000 in property taxes in 2011, compared to the $24,333 bill she received for this year. “This, to me, is horrific,” she said. “It’s got to stop. I know what the existing rules and legislation are and it’s wrong. It’s inequitable. It’s not sustainable.” In making her case, Aasen noted property taxes account for her shop’s third-largest expense after rent and labour. And in an interview Tuesday, Aasen said she will likely move her business to another community once her lease expires if the issue doesn’t get rectified. “I don’t see how this is realistic for any community to justify,” she said. Aasen’s presentation was met with little oppos-

This council has said it repeatedly.” Finance department staffer Gary Jackson explained there’s little, if anything, the city can do to allay Aasen’s situation. “We can’t adjust individual taxes,” he said. “The way we do the assessment is we average it out and there are going to be some properties that have spikes. But council does not have the ability to make any adjustments.” Zina Weston, deputy assessor for the North Fraser region of B. Assessment, explained property assess-

ments are based on age, size, location, features of the property and land. From there, the assessment authority determines what the market would pay for that land based on recent trends. She noted some of the recent revitalization in the area — work on the Port Mann Bridge and King Edward Overpass — likely played into that increased assessment. “One of the terms we tend to use for changes in the area might be something like revitalization — so access, profile, and especially for commercial properties, what draws the public to the area and makes it all accessible [factor into the increase],” she said. Monday’s debate played out in a decidedly similar fashion to what took place in the Town Centre area in the summer of 2011. At that time, about six businesses complained of a “property tax tsunami” that saw increases in the range of 30 to 50 per cent in the area.

Coquitlam hit by rash of auto break-ins Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

They come looking for money, electronics and in some cases something as simple as a box of tissues — anything thieves can get their hands on. In the last week, Coquitlam Mounties have been dealing with a rash of thefts from vehicles across both Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam. In just one shift last Friday

(Nov. 30), police handled more than 25 reported vehicle break-ins. RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung said investigators aren’t sure why there’s been a sudden spike in theft from vehicles, but suggested it could be the work of a couple crooks recently released from jail. “It seems so senseless to smash people’s windows and look inside to see if they have anything valuable,” he said. “Sometimes they find nothing.” Though on some occasions

the thieves have made off with very little, that’s not always the case. Chung noted some of the items stolen include expensive sports equipment, GPS systems, wallets and, in one instance, $100 in cash. The recent incidents have Mounties reminding the driving public to keep valuables out of sight — and if they’re too important to lose — out of the car completely. People are also being told to park in well-lit areas to make it less attractive for

thieves to target a vehicle. And the RCMP is urging people to call the police if they spot suspicious activity in their neighbourhood. The sudden increase in thefts appears to fly in the face of recent trends that show a major decrease in both the number of stolen vehicles and theft from autos. According to recent statistics released by ICBC, the number of theft-of-vehicle incidents in Coquitlam dropped by 85 per cent going back to 2003.

And officials noted the drop in auto thefts has coincided with a similar drop in theftfrom-vehicle reports. There were 70 cars stolen in the city in the first six months of this year, compared to 478 in 2003. The number of car thefts in PoCo has dropped 82 per cent since 2003, to 35 in the first half of 2012 from 191 in 2003. ICBC officials credited the bait car program and technology in new cars that make them harder to steal for the decrease in thefts.

New judge approved for PoCo courthouse Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Come the new year, there will be at least one new face in the halls of the courthouse in Port Coquitlam. The province announced Tuesday plans to add nine new judges to community courts across B.C., including one in Port Coquitlam. According to a Ministry of Justice press

release, it costs the province close to $1.6 million annually to support a judge, including the judge’s salary and costs for court administration staff, sheriffs, prosecution services and judicial support. The appointments will all take place within the next seven weeks. There are now 132 full-time equivalent judges in B.C. The press release also noted the province and the Office of the Chief Judge have signed

a protocol agreement to work together on two backlog reduction projects. As part of the agreement, the chief judge will assign the equivalent of one full-time judge to the projects over the next year. One of the projects will start in spring 2013

and focus on reducing pending child protection cases in selected courthouse locations. A second backlog reduction project will begin later in 2013 and focus on reducing the criminal case backlog. twitter.com/jercoquitlamnow

Fremont Connector set to open on Dec. 13

Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians will soon have easier access to and through Port Coquitlam’s Dominion Triangle area with the opening on Dec. 13 of the Fremont Connector. A long-time component of the city’s future transportation plans, the Fremont Connector is an important north-south arterial road linking Lougheed Highway and the Mary Hill Bypass with the road network in northeast PoCo. The road has been built between the Lougheed-Mary Hill interchange and Dominion Avenue by the developer of the eastern portion of Dominion Triangle, Con-West Contracting Ltd., which will turn the road over to the city. “The Dominion Triangle will bring our community a diverse range of jobs, from retail to commerce to industrial,” Mayor Greg Moore said in a press release. “The Fremont Connector is an important piece of the developing road network in that area, and will help us grow our local economy while improving access for our residents and businesses.”

The new road has been constructed to full arterial standards, with four travel lanes, sidewalks and bicycle lanes. Tying in to the existing two-lane Burns Road at its north end, the new road will provide the following options for drivers: • Using the Fremont Connector to access development on Sherling Avenue and Hawkins Street and to access the Mary Hill Bypass. • Using the Fremont Connector and Sherling Avenue to access the Pitt River Bridge. • Using Prairie Avenue and Burns Road to access the Fremont Connector. As part of its Master Transportation Plan process in 2011 and 2012, the city has been reassessing the need, cost and benefits of eventually extending the Fremont Connector north of Dominion Avenue. The schedule for extending the Fremont Connector north of Dominion will be subject to further study, the pace of development in the area, and funding.

Fire blamed on candle Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Investigators have determined a lit candle caused a fire in a Coquitlam townhouse over the weekend. Fire crews were called to the building in the 3100 block of Ozada Avenue near the City Centre just before 2 p.m. Saturday. When crews arrived, one unit was fully involved with flames on the second and third floors. The two-alarm fire was quickly put out, but two residents were taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation. One unit was destroyed, while another two received smoke and water damage. But it’s the cause of the blaze that has Coquitlam Fire & Rescue officials troubled. Chief Tony Delmonico noted Saturday’s fire was the third accidental blaze in Coquitlam started by a candle since October. “We’re hoping, especially with Christmastime when candles are more prevalent, that people will take extra precautions with the use of candles and make sure they do it safely,” he said. Desiree Demchuck lives above the unit that caught fire. She had just returned home from a birthday party when she noticed the streets were blocked off and flames were coming from the building. “There were really bad flames coming out of the window,” Demchuck told The NOW. “I was like ‘Oh my God, it’s right beside me.’” After an anxious wait, fire crews eventually told Demchuck her unit had water damage and she wouldn’t be allowed back in for at least the night. Her TV and some of her furniture were destroyed. Demchuck said she heard the people in the

It wasn’t the only call that kept the fire department on its toes. On Sunday, Coquitlam Centre needed to be evacuated following a gas leak. Crews were called to the mall around 3 p.m. after a large branch fell from a tree, severing a gas line by the loading dock of The Bay. The gas was shut off, but quickly restored once the problem was fixed. The fire department carried out air testing in the mall, but found no readings of gas. Within the hour, shoppers were allowed to return to the mall.

Time for action

T

he world won’t stand still on Thursday, Dec. 6. But a few people will. They’ll take a moment to remember the senseless deaths of 14 women who were murdered exactly 23 years ago at Montreal’s École Polytechnique. It started out as an ordinary day of classes for Geneviève Bergeron, Nathalie Croteau, Anne-Marie Edward, Maryse Laganière, AnneMarie Lemay, Michèle Richard, Annie Turcotte, Hélène Colgan, Barbara Daigneault, Maud Haviernick, Maryse Leclair, Sonia Pelletier, Annie St-Arneault and Barbara Klusznik Widajewicz — until a man with a gun walked into the room, ordered them and the other women in their class to separate from the men, and opened fire on all the women. In a sense, it remained an ordinary day, despite the horrific violence perpetrated on those women that day. Because horrific violence is perpetrated against women every day, every ordinary day. The Montreal Massacre has become a focal point for those who will stand still at candlelight vigils throughout the Lower Mainland and elsewhere. The night will be filled with people holding candles and pondering their own memories of horrific violence — against themselves, against someone they love or against someone they once knew. Violence against women continues to be a part of our social fabric. It continues to be a horrific problem, despite the dramatic events of Dec. 6, 1989, and despite all those who will stand still with their candles in recognition of the awfulness of that day. The problem continues, because too many people stand far too still all the rest of the year. Dec. 6 has become known as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. There has been lots of remembrance. It’s high time there was some action.

servicing and personal protection. Would de Jong seriously cut health care or education, or reduce welfare benefits, or cut back on law enforcement just before an election? I highly doubt it. The government has already cut the low-hanging fruit that it traditionally looks at when times get tight (reducing travel costs, implementing a hiring freeze, etc.) so there’s not much there to have an impact if those rosy revenues turn out to be not so rosy. This all raises the question of why de Jong is even trying to deliver a surplus budget in such lean times. Why not simply wait a year or two until the economy turns around enough to get those revenue streams moving again with realistic expectations? Then there’s the elephant in the room. That would be the serious credibility problem attached to preelection budgets. The 2009 budget, delivered just before the election campaign, turned out to be a giant work of fiction as it went from a projected surplus to a huge deficit — a fact revealed only after the votes were counted. So perhaps it is best for our finance minister to fold his hand and wait for a better one. Drawing to that inside straight may not be worth the gamble.

ident, as most Canadian politicians are. Complaining that the Windsors are not Canadian enough shows a myopic view of history. The ancestor of the current King of Spain was the grandson of Louis XIV, whose family had more foreign blood (Italian, Spanish-Austrian, Gascon, etc.) than French. All the European royal families still around today have ancestors that came from all over Europe. They got fresh blood all the time by not marrying the guy or girl next door, but some aristocratic stranger they barely knew. Napoleon I was only technically French — he was born in 1769 and Corsica only became officially French in 1770 — and was always very much a short-tempered Corsican with a strong accent. Napoleon III, nephew of the former, was raised in Holland, Switzerland and Germany, and lived briefly in Italy and England before becoming president of France, then emperor. His wife was a Spanish princess. When Italy became united in the 1860s — with the help of Napoleon III — their first king was the King of Sardinia /Duke of Savoy (Savoie was a French-speaking dukedom that straddled both sides of the Alps). Then there is the British Royal family — like the French one it started, after the fall of the Roman Empire, with German tribes. Anglos and Saxons for one, Franks for the other. All bloody — literally — foreigners, weren’t they?

Honi soit qui mal y pense, but wasn’t Guillaume de Normandie (his true name) and his Angevin and Plantagenet successors on the British throne all French speaking (not quite the same French as in the Paris region)? Then there were the Tudors, themselves of mixed blood as pretty much all European kings through history had to marry a foreign princess to prevent wars. Then there were the British kings with a Scottish ancestry; later on there was Charles II, who had the same maternal grandfather as Louis XIV; then there were the kings with a German Hanover ancestry. Prince Phillip is the last consort with more than a hint of foreign blood. My birthplace, part of the English kingdom for 300 years — quite a few towns in the area were built in the Middle Ages by Plantagenet kings — was also the birthplace of the future King Richard II of England. It is under his reign that the town got its first formal hospital, in 1390, replaced in 1829 by a much bigger and beautiful one, with gardens between the wards, that is still the town downtown hospital. This is why I am quite sentimental about the monarchy. Would you truly enjoy being ruled by President Harper or Trudeau? Perish the thought. Canada is bland enough as it is. Now go wash your mouth out with soap before I tell the Queen. J-L Brussac Coquitlam

With hotel plan gone, Onni favours offices jdeutsch@thenownews.com At first it was going to be a hotel, then the plan was to build an office tower. Now Port Moody residents will get their say on a major development slated for the Suter Brook site at an upcoming public hearing. The Onni Development Corp. has applied for a landuse contract amendment that would allow the company to build a nine-storey office tower at 220 Brew St., on the south side of Suter Brook Way where it meets Ioco Road. The plan is to construct a building with ground-floor commercial space and eight office levels in place of the hotel. In total, roughly 26,000 square feet of commercial space and another 141,000 square feet of office space is being proposed. The amendment would move all references in the land-use contract to “hotel” or “hotel commercial use.” A staff report on the project suggested the office retail space could generate $440,000

in tax revenue based on the 2012 mill rate. The report also noted the development meets the requirements of the Suter Brook sustainability plan and includes features like a green roof and timers to turn office lighting off after hours. As part of the application, Onni also held two community information meetings to get feedback. The staff report indicated 27 people attended the meetings, with nine forms completed, all of which were supportive of the proposal. While council agreed to send the application to a public hearing, that doesn’t guarantee the project will be approved.

Coun. Gerry Nuttall questioned whether the hotel could have been a viable project, adding he wasn’t convinced the city should allow the company to change the plan. “I guess I’m just expressing a bit of a frustration,” he said at the Nov. 27 council meeting. Coun. Rick Glumac said he was “torn” on the issue, suggesting he likes both the idea of the hotel and the office tower. Coun. Zoe Royer, meanwhile, said she considers the proposed development a great project. The public hearing is scheduled for the next council meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 11.

There is no shortage of charities and organizations in need at Christmas time. But a recent incident at a community police station in PoCo has Coquitlam RCMP offering tips to ensure the kindness of residents isn’t exploited. The detachment’s official launch of the fourth-annual “911 We Care” toy drive, which began Nov. 29, is underway and toys are flowing in. But police said the launch led to an “interesting incident” on Nov. 23. A man in his 60s entered the Mary Hill community police station and asked if he could have one of the toy drive posters because he wanted to donate a bunch of toys. “The station volunteer felt that he was sincere, but his request was quite unusual,” said RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung. “She politely told the gentleman that there was no spare and he left.” Police note even though no criminal offence took place, Mounties are using the opportunity to offer advice so people don’t get scammed. Their tips include: • Be wary of appeals that tug at your heart strings, especially pleas involving current events. • Ask for identification. If the solicitor refuses to tell you or does not have some form of verifiable ID, hang up or close the door and report it to law enforcement officials. • Call the charity. Find out if the organization is aware of the solicitation and has authorized the use of its name. If not, you may be dealing with a scam artist.

Movember raises funds John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

T

wo groups of Tri-Cities first responders have pushed the Mo to the max, placing in the top five in their respective categories for Movember fundraisers staged across Canada. Members of the Coquitlam RCMP raised $12,739, netting the local force third place in the nation in Movember totals amongst police agencies. Sgt. David Fee, of the local RCMP’s traffic division, raised the most of any local Mountie with a total of $1,001. PoCo firefighters, on the other hand, raised $12,794, a total that earned them the fifth-highest fundraising total in the nationwide “Great Canadian Fire Department Challenge.” The bulk of that money, just under $10,500, was raised via a hockey tournament staged last weekend at Coquitlam’s Planet Ice. “A huge accomplishment for a small department of only 63 members, I feel this is incredible to share the top spots with other departments 10 or more times our size,” PoCo firefighter Ryan Masi said in an e-mail to The NOW. Final Movember fundraising totals were unavailable by NOW deadline for the Port Moody Police Department, Coquitlam Fire & Rescue and Port Moody Fire Department. All monies raised from each of the five groups will be donated to the Movember Canada movement, which directs funds towards men’s health issues — specifically prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives.

Red Nose season off to good start The start of the 2012 Operation Red Nose Campaign in the Tri-Cities, Burnaby and New Westminster got off to “an amazing start,” according to coordinator Chris Wilson. During the first weekend of this year’s campaign, volunteers gave 84 rides for a total of 2,687 kilometres driven, and raised $3,015 for KidSport. That compares to 40 rides during the first weekend of the 2011 campaign, as well as 1,338 kilometres driven and $1,455 raised for KidSport. “We’re very excited about the first week’s numbers and are looking forward to the rest of the campaign,” Wilson said in an e-mail to The NOW. “Our first night ever in Burnaby delivered 14 rides and New West had six. We had 53 volunteers giving up their Friday or Saturday night to make sure people got home safely. There’s a strong demand for the service, so we’re still looking for more volunteers. Anyone interested in helping out should e-mail orn@shaw.ca.” Volunteers are needed for the following dates: • Dec. 7 and 8 • Dec. 14 and 15 • Dec. 21 and 22 • Dec 31 All proceeds benefit KidSport, which raises funds to help children from low-income families play organized sports.

SHARE issues plea for help It’s the season of giving and SHARE’s food bank is preparing Christmas food and toy hampers for about 1,800 individuals and families in the Tri-Cities. The problem, according to a press release, is there aren’t any items in the food bank to fill them with. To fill the hampers, 53,000 food item donations are needed (which is equivalent to 45,000 pounds of food). SHARE is asking residents to help in the following ways: • By donating directly to SHARE’s food bank at 2615 Clarke St. in Port Moody (at the back of the building). • By donating at any grocery store in the Tri-Cities. • By making a financial donation (call 604540-9161 or visit www.sharesociety.ca for details).

Items most needed for Christmas food hampers are: cereal, pancake mix and syrup, one-litre containers of juice, peanut butter and jam, canned ham, canned vegetables, canned tomatoes, rice, pasta and tomato sauce, stuffing mix, dry noodle and rice mixes, canned meat and fish, canned meals (stews and ravioli), condiments, canned fruit, pudding, chocolate, granola bars, cookies, nuts (peanuts, almonds, etc.), tea, coffee and hot chocolate. The toys most urgently needed are those for teen boys and girls. To view SHARE’s toy shop wish list, visit www.sharesociety.ca, then click on “Food Bank” under “Programs & Groups” then “… donating a toy or food” in the blue box on the left-hand side of the page. Finally, click on “Holiday Toy Shop Wish List.”

PoCo dentist honoured A Port Coquitlam dentist has been recognized as an Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry. Dr. Myrna Pearce received the honour during the academy’s annual meeting, held from Oct. 3 to 6 in Washington, DC. She is one of 616 dentists who hold this distinguished membership, according to a press release from the academy, and “is one of the leading experts in implant care.” In order to qualify, Pearce completed at least 300 hours of post-doctoral instruction in implant dentistry, performed implant cases and passed the academy’s Associate Fellow exam — which is conducted by an expert panel of implant dentists and includes a written exam, a series of oral exams and defense of three implant cases she had completed. The academy has more than 4,300 members, including general dentists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists and prosthodontists.

It was featured as the No. 1 new strategy app in Canada just after its release, and quickly moved into the top 14 per cent of all apps. “This game is already the best version of rock, paper and scissor of any type in the app store,” Sullivan said. The game sells for $1.99. There is one more TriCities connection to the game that has now gone worldwide. Christopher Leitch, aka Lake Fader, who did all the games music and some of the sound effects, was also raised in Coquitlam. Though no one outside of the area would even know his elementary school serves as the backdrop for his game, Sullivan hopes the school will appreciate the ode to the place where he spent so much time growing up. twitter.com/ jercoquitlamnow

The only thing scarier during the holidays than the tally on a credit card bill come January is the idea of a child getting lost or abducted while out shopping. Safety tips can keep children by your side or help caregivers find kids fast should they wander off. This is a busy time at the mall, with many people packed into stores in search of the perfect gifts. Confusion and the sheer volume of shoppers can increase the chance that a child will get lost. A lost child can create panic for parents and caregivers. However, keeping a level head is more beneficial than running off to find the child. Although preventing a child from wandering off is the best method of protection, being prepared for what to do should the child go missing is equally important.

TALK ABOUT WHAT TO DO: Sit children who are old enough down to help them understand and set up a plan of action if they become separated from you. In familiar stores, you can establish a meeting spot to go to, such as near the cash register. Instruct children to seek a security guard or store employee and ask for help.

DRESS BOLDLY: Part of the problem when holiday shopping is being swarmed by different people all dressed similarly. Designate brightly colored clothes that both you and your children can wear to be more visible. Most small children only have the vantage point of seeing from the waist down. Consider wearing flashy shoes or a bandana tied to belt loops to help you stand out. Children can wear a bright shirt or hat so you can see them at all times. DRESS UP STROLLERS, TOO: Many strollers are identical in appearance. Set yours apart by tying a ribbon or balloon to it. This way you will be able to notice if someone is wandering off with your stroller — and your child! CARRY A RECENT PHOTO: Take a picture of your children with your mobile phone before leaving the house so that you will know exactly what he or she was wearing and will have the most recent photo available for identification. In addition to taking a head shot, take a photo of the child’s shoes, too. In events of child abduction, kidnappers

may have a change of clothes ready for children, but rarely will they be able to change kids’ shoes because of sizing issues. Those shoes can prove an invaluable method of identification. GIVE CHILDREN IDENTIFICATION: You can create a personal ID card with basic information to help reunite you with your child. This may include only the child’s first name and an “I’m Lost” message with a phone number to “Call Mom.” Because even an ID card can go missing, some inventive parents are using methods like temporary tattoo IDs like those from SafetyTat. HOLD HANDS – STAY CONNECTED: Keep your children within reach and do not let them stay in one aisle while you shop in another. Holding hands keeps children within reach. Although many parents frown on the use of a child leash, if it means the difference between a child running off or staying put, it might be a good idea. REINFORCEPOSITIVEBEHAVIOUR: Should a child wander off and follow safety tips, reward that behaviour with praise when you are reunited. Wait until another time to talk about why he or she got lost and how to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Children tend to wander off out of curiosity or by following the wrong person. During the busy holiday season this can happen more frequently. By heeding tips, children can be kept safe whenever the family is in a crowd.

Amnesty International fundraiser on Dec. 10 The jailing of a blogger in Iran and of artists in China, rape as intimidation in Mexico, journalists assassinated in Pakistan — the list seems endless but Tri-Cities human rights activists try not to get discouraged. “If we lost heart, we’d be letting down the men and women around the world who struggle to protect the freedoms and rights we take for granted,” Myrta Hayes, a Port Moody member of Amnesty International, said in a press release. Hayes is helping organize Amnesty’s annual dinner/fundraiser, which marks the 64th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The event will draw attention to human rights abuses in Burma, Syria and Iran. According to Amnesty International, while Burma has made great strides toward democracy over the past year, the Burmese military continues to be responsible for abuses against civilians in conflict areas, including forced labour, sexual violence, the use of “human shields” and indiscriminate attacks on civilians. Syria is in a state of civil crisis — reports of government opening fire on civilians, forced disappearances and torture of children are common. Iran continues to openly abuse human rights — including through the imprisonment of Nasrin Sotoudeh, a lawyer and human rights activist at the notorious Evin Prison who was jailed for speaking up for depending political prisoners, and the recent alleged torture and death of a blogger. Amnesty International also says that while Canada prides itself on its commitment to human rights, systematic violations of the rights of indigenous peoples exist, especially as businesses — and government — seek to expand into traditional aboriginal lands. “There’s no shortage of countries on which we can focus,” Hayes said, adding the group will have petitions, cards and letters to sign on behalf of people like Sotoudeh. “The ongoing abuse of human rights needs everybody’s attention,” Hayes said, adding she has a personal reason for supporting Amnesty International. Twenty-one years ago, her nephew was kidnapped in

Afghanistan while inspecting prison facilities for the Red Cross. A colleague told her if the Red Cross could not secure his freedom, she should contact Amnesty

International. “I never forgot that Amnesty would have been there to help had we needed it so when I met a member of the Tri-City Amnesty group

last year I decided to join,” Hayes said. Tickets for the Dec. 10 fundraiser are $20 and include dinner, music, a chance to sign petitions and letters, a

silent auction and a short presentation on human rights issues in Burma, Syria, Iran and Canada. As well, local musician Jeff Huggins will be performing his unique mix of

indie/folk/rock. The dinner takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. at Pasta Polo, 2754 Barnet Hwy. in Coquitlam. To reserve tickets, call 604464-7706.

Thank You Thank you to all the people of Port Coquitlam for your support during our recent Poppy Campaign. Without this generous support during this time of Remembrance we would fail in our mission to provide assistance to those who have, and those who continue to, serve for the rights which we sometimes take for granted. For the last 78 years The Royal Canadian Legion, Port Coquitlam Branch #133 has been dedicated to assisting veterans and helping others in need, within our community. Last year our branch donated a total of $71,000 to programs for youth and seniors. $16,000 was designated to post-secondary students. The remaining funds were distributed to seniors’ programs through the community from Meals on Wheels to Hospice. Monies raised through our Poppy Campaign and other fundraising events does not stay within the Legion; all monies generated goes back into our community in the form of donations and bursaries.

Our Membership is not only comprised of veterans and their family members. Young men and women returning from Afghanistan have recently become Legion members. Membership is open to all persons 19 years of age and older. Military Service is No Longer a Requirement for joining the Legion.

We encourage you to drop by and check us out. Where have the donations gone?

Some of the recipients: • 2893 Seaforth Army Cadets • 777 Neptune Squadron Air Cadets • Crossroads Hospice • 8 Bursaries ($2000 each) to Post Secondary Students • PoCo Meals on Wheels • Port Coquitlam Senior Housing Society • Eagle Ridge Hospital • Share Society • Wilson Centre for Seniors • PoCo Heritage Society

Special thanks to the Guides and Scouts who assisted with the wreath laying at the Cenotaph, and our cadets who assisted with the tagging. Thank you to all the businesses who allowed volunteers to accept donations for poppies both inside and outside their locations.

Ravens remain perfect with junior title Stories by Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Dominating in the air and on the ground is always a recipe for football success. The Terry Fox Ravens proved to be unbeatable all year long, capping it Saturday by topping the St. Thomas More Knights 14-7 in the B.C. junior varsity championship final at BC Place. It was a battle of quarterbacks, and Coquitlam’s Conner McKee ended up holding all the cards. Fox’s 15-year-old quarterback threw two touchdown passes and did even more damage on defence,

where he intercepted four STM passes to set the tone in a well-rounded team performance. “No turnovers, that’s what our coaches told us before the game,” recalled McKee. “You don’t want turnovers because it gives them a chance to score.” Turnovers turned into big plays for Fox, as time and again they stopped the Knights in their tracks. The decisive major came after a McKee interception. The Port Coquitlam squad scored on its first possession and its first play out of the huddle, when McKee and his receivers debuted a razzle-dazzle flea flicker that Dylan Foulds ran in from 28 yards to make it 6-0. Later in the half, McKee hauled in his first inter-

ception. Three plays later, he hit Mike West on a 62yard pass-and-run TD to make it 12-0. A two-point convert later, Fox was in control 14-0. But the Knights, who gave the Ravens one of their toughest tests during the regular season, put together a long march that fell just two yards short of a major after a huge stand by the Fox defence. Trapped deep in their own zone, the No. 1-ranked Ravens were unable to move the sticks and the ensuing punt set up STM’s five-yard TD pass just before halftime. Neither offence was able to do much over the second half.  CONT. ON PAGE 20, see FOX PICKS.

CAT SCRATCH FEVER A four-game losing skid is what the Port Moody Panthers are aiming to put behind them on Saturday, when they take to the ice to play the Delta Icehawks. The Panthers, locked in the Pacific Junior B Hockey League basement, will try and knock off a tough Delta squad, which sits with the circuit’s thirdbest record. Game time is 7:45 p.m. at the Port Moody Arena. MAKING A SPLASH The Riverside Rapids senior girls basketball team has already kickstarted the new hoop year with a handful of wins. They also host one pool of the Telus Basketball Classic this week, beginning today (Wednesday). The Rapids play host to Collingwood, 3:30 p.m., followed by St. Thomas Aquinas vs. Britannia at 5 p.m. The winners of each game meet on Thursday, 3:30 p.m. at Riverside. In other action, the Vancouver Northeast Chiefs challenge second place Okanagan Rockets in a major midget hockey double-feature: Game 1, 4 p.m. on Saturday, and Game 2, 11:45 a.m. on Sunday, both at Coquitlam’s Planet Ice (2300 Rocket Way).

Marathon battle sees South Delta edge Kodiaks at B.C.s Gutsy, spirited and emotional all describe the journey the Heritage Woods Kodiaks travelled in Saturday’s B.C. AAAA senior girls volleyball championship final in Port Coquitlam. Rallying from a 2-0 deficit to push the South Delta Sun Devils to a fifth and deciding game — where the No. 1-ranked Sun Devils prevailed 15-12 — provided cold comfort moments after the final point was scored. Gutsy, spirited and emotional also applied to Heritage Woods’ own per-

formance during a physically and emotionally draining final — where they displayed passion, determination and skill in a season setting showdown. There wasn’t much to separate the two, as it came down to who could dish back and tame momentum the longest. In the end, South Delta’s defence was a tick better and they cashed in on a little more luck along the way. “(South Delta) played really good volleyball, we just got a little behind

[in] the first two sets,” said Kodiaks coach Alex Seres. “It was tough to fight back from behind when Delta got that (2-0) lead, but we did. “I knew if we had a lead we’d be better off, but (South Delta) played unbelievable volleyball on both sides.” The tale of the tape didn’t start so well for the Kodiaks, who roared into the final having won 15 straight sets including a 3-0 (25-15, 25-23, 25-15) decision over Dr. Charles Best in the semifinals.

They trailed most of the way during the first two sets against South Delta, losing both by identical 25-22 scores. The Sun Devils, who survived a dramatic 3-2 thriller earlier Saturday over Earl Marriott to advance to the championship final, corralled the game’s early momentum through some stellar back court defence. They also received standout performances from Grade 10 twins Megan and Nicole McNamara

The NOW COQUITLAM, PORT COQUITLAM, PORT MOODY, ANMORE AND BELCARRA

Coquitlam shooters blast Trail game, also tallied. Daniel Urbani was beaten by one-time Express teammate Braden Pears midway through the third to ruin the rookie netminder’s shutout bid. The win was an effective bounce-back from Friday’s disappointing 4-2 loss in Surrey, where Eagles netminder Michael Santaguida kicked out 43 shots to give his squad the win. A bench minor midway through the first led to Surrey’s opening goal, and was followed 33 seconds later by another Eagles tally. Siemer and Zielonka supplied the offence, but Santaguida turned aside all 18 shots over the final frame to lock up the win for Surrey. Against divisional rivals, Coquitlam is a painful 2-9-1 to date — a number that doesn’t reflect their over-500 status around the league. “Overall in our division we’ve had our troubles,” noted Calvano. “Other than one game we haven’t been blown out.” They’ll have the next 10 days to improve upon that record as they play four road games — beginning tonight in Chilliwack. They also play twice in Prince George over the weekend, before heading to Langley. Their next home test isn’t until Dec. 15 when they host Powell River.

On a night when offence would benefit charity, the Coquitlam Express snipers showed their stuff. Coquitlam launched a barrage of teddy bears early in Saturday’s game against the Trail Smoke Eaters, en route to a 7-1 victory. Mike Maciag’s powerplay marker at 1:25 — coming on a powerplay — triggered a crowdburst of stuffy donations from the fans in attendance for SHARE’s Christmas toy drive. It also triggered an unusual bounty of offence from the Express, who have lived off the production of two players for much of the past month. “We got a few bounces right off the hop, getting that powerplay off a high hit and a nice tip-in from Maciag,” said Coquitlam coach Jon Calvano. “The standard storyline for this team has been that Philip (Zielonka) and John (Siemer) have been supplying the offence for us, so to have other guys contribute in such a big way was really positive.” They led 3-0 before the game was six minutes old, and built a 5-0 advantage after two periods. Travis Stephens scored twice, while Justin Georgeson cashed in a goal and two assists to pace a well-balanced attack. Mitch Nardi, Siemer and Zielonka, with a goal in his seventh straight

“Our defence just kept stepping up to every challenge they faced,” noted head coach Dave Lehman. “STM is probably the most athletic team we’ve faced so they have a lot of weapons. But we were up for the game.” For Terry Fox, it was the third B.C. junior title, having won it in 2006 and 2007. The Knights were full credit for limiting the powerhouse Ravens to just 200 yards on offence, but they couldn’t prevent the final victory in a 13-0 season. McKee completed five of nine pass attempts for 108 yards and two majors, while posting four tackles along with the interceptions. He was named the final MVP. “Conner played phenomenally, it was our

gameplan to line him up to their quarterback’s favourite side. He did a fantastic job getting in the right spot,” added Lehman. The six-foot tall Coquitlam native said the team began the year determined to win — spurred on by the memory of a teammate. “One of our friends in school passed away before the season,” said McKee. “We got together and we’d decide to win it for him — for Bailey.” Jan Cabrera rushed for 45 yards on 15 carries, while West collected a pair of catches for 66 yards. On defence, Isaiah Stevens picked up seven and a half tackles, while Sean Stewart contributed five and a half. Taylor Poitras and Jordon Seney had four tackles each, with Seney adding a fumble recovery en route to earning the game’s top lineman award.

Clan quartet net All-American honours

Four Simon Fraser University soccer players earned All-American honours following the varsity team’s historic semifinal finish at the NCAA Division national championships last week. Port Moody’s Matt Besuschko was named to the Daktronics All-American first team, while Great Northwest conference player of the year, Michael Winter, of Vancouver, earned a spot on the second team.

Besuschko also received first team all-region and allconference honours. Conference freshman of the year, North Delta’s Ryan Dhillon, was selected to the third team. Coquitlam striker Carlo Basso, who led the Great Northwest conference with 14 goals, received an honourable mention nod. Winter and Dhillon were also both honoured as West region first team all-stars earlier this season.

Clan styme Wolves

In convincing fashion, the SFU women’s basketball team tamed the Western Oregon Wolves 80-38 on Saturday. Kia Van Laare set the tone for SFU, scoring 18 points while hitting six of eight three-point shots. It was the third straight game that the Clan held its opposition under 50 points. The team now takes a break until after the holidays.

While the Port Moody lineup will have six players returning for next season, they will lose seniors and starters Madison Burt, Samantha Thompson, Gentile, Jennings and McKay. Also graduating are Jacquelyn Dittrich, Quinn Li and Mikaela MacPhail. The Dr. Charles Best Blue Devils, meanwhile capped a tremendous run at the provincials by placing fourth overall. On Friday, they outlasted Kelowna 3-2 before succumbing to the Kodiaks in the semifinal. They were edged 2-1 in the bronze medal game by Earl Marriott. Read more on Best’s run in Friday’s NOW. Earning a first team all-star nod was setter Nikki Cornwall, while Brittany Aldridge was named to the second all-star team. The host Riverside Rapids finished eighth after falling 2-1 to South Kamloops, while Terry Fox Ravens blanked Mount Baker 2-0 to claim 15th spot overall.

and setter/tournament MVP Emma Robinson. In the third set, the Kodiaks and Sun Devils exchanged leads a number of times with the Valley champs holding a 20-19 advantage before the Port Moody school pushed ahead. Heritage pulled out a dramatic 26-24 triumph on a stellar block by leftside Emma Jennings. Behind that bit of momentum, the Kodiaks dominated the next set 25-16 to force a fifth and deciding match with their Fraser Valley nemesis. With everything on the line, both squads set up a fierce front. Heritage Woods held a 5-1 lead early on Alessandra Gentile’s cross-court kill. South Delta reclaimed the momentum and pulled ahead 7-5 on Megan McNamara’s skilled net shot. One more time, the Kodiaks forced their way to the front of the pack when Gentile deliv-

ered a back court smash to make it 10-9. That was the end of their run, however. The Sun Devils retook the lead on McNamara’s dart to the front court, then rode the momentum to South Delta’s first B.C. girls title. Despite the disappointing ending, Heritage Woods can celebrate many nuggets of gold over a season that saw them ranked first or second most of the year. “This is a great group of girls, we’ve grown up together. We’re a family,” said a tearyeyed Gentile. “I’ve played with most of them over my club years… We learned how to play as a team in the end. In those last two sets we came back so hard, we wanted it so hard.” Both Gentile and Jennings were named AAAA first team all-stars, while teammate Alison McKay was a secondteam selection. Last year, the Kodiaks finished fourth at the B.C.s while South Delta stood 10th overall.

HOW IT WORKS

WHO CAN BENEFIT?

Low Intensity Laser Therapy (LILT) is a highly sophisticated, nontoxic and non-invasive therapy that uses light energy from both superluminous and laser diodes. When placed in contact with the skin, this energy safely penetrates the tissue. At an intracellular level, the light is transformed into biochemical energy. Cells use this energy to repair and regenerate themselves, enhancing the body’s natural healing process.

BioFlex Low Intensity Laser Therapy is an effective solution for musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions, dermatological problems and the healing of open wounds. BioFlex therapy can safely increase the rate of recovery and help patients reduce the need for pain medication. BioFlex also has the ability to promote rapid recovery post surgery. The beneficial effects of LILT are cumulative over the course of a series of treatments.
