t’s a burning issue one Port Coquitlam resident says is literally smoking him out of house, home and health. Northside resident Roy Reinmuth claims the emissions from a neighbourhood chimney have destroyed his health and temperament, causing him to miss work for the last 10 weeks. Reinmuth says the problem began in 2008 or 2009, when he began feeling ill both inside and outside of his home. He said his symptoms include dizziness, nausea, coughing, diarrhea and irritability. “We get literally smoked out of house and home here,” said Reinmuth, adding he can’t be in his yard for more than 30 seconds without feeling sick. “It’s been going on for several years. I’ve become really sick from it.” Baffled by the cause of his symptoms, Reinmuth’s doctor told him the issue was likely tied to the wood smoke being emitted near his home. His doctor’s solution, according to Reinmuth, was to move. “All they say is get away from the NOW photos by Lisa King smoke — it feels like someone has Roy Reinmuth says wood smoke drifting onto his property is impacting his health. clamped down on your lungs,” he said. that Metro receives about 90 com“My eyes start to water and it’s like an plaints regarding wood smoke from allergic reaction.” across the region on a yearly basis.

is building another home on a nearby parcel he owns. Eventually, he plans to make sure it, too, ends up as part of the reserve. “I don’t want it sold to private individuals because they will subdivide it and build homes and condominiums,” he said. As a park reserve, Widgeon has restricted access and isn’t open to the public, according to Metro Vancouver. A number of rare and endangered species call the area home, such as the green heron, Western screech and shorteared owls, red-legged frog, and the painted turtle. Brad Arner, manager of provincial operations for Ducks Unlimited Canada in B.C., could not be reached for comment. But he said earlier in a news release that the land acquired by the region is one of the largest remaining unprotected wetlands in the area. It builds upon other nearby wetlands already

protected in the Pitt Unit of the Pitt-Addington Wildlife Management Area. “Widgeon Marsh is unique because it is a tidal freshwater wetland and is influenced by Pitt Lake, the largest freshwater tidal lake in North America,” he said in the release. “The wetlands are intensively used by birds, especially shorebirds and waterfowl, with counts as high as 1,000 and 2,000 in a day.” Edward said in a phone interview that the sale was completed in July. “If you see the area, you’d know why I’m doing what I’m doing. As far as I’m concerned, it will never be opened to the public as a drive-in place because if you do that, you have a big road and parking lot and garbage. It’s not a nature reserve anymore. It’s taken over by people. It’ll be a go-by-boat place.” He said the marsh is an excellent area for kayaking. Edward sees his donation of land as fitting into a bigger picture. The Widgeon Marsh Reserve is surrounded by Pinecone-Burke Provincial Park, which abuts Garibaldi Provincial Park to the north, which in turn also links with Golden Ears Provincial Park to the south, creating a ring around an area that includes Pitt Lake.

Edward, 79, has lived in the area all his life, and fondly recalls spending time with his mother in the marsh. “She was a real nature person,” he said. “She spent so much time in the marsh. She died the year I bought the property. It’s my little bit to save this area. I want this never to be residential or commercial. I want it to be wild.”

Since 1992, Metro Vancouver and Nature Trust of B.C. have partnered to purchase 580 hectares of land to establish the Widgeon Marsh Reserve. The recent purchase of Edward’s land has meant getting control of a section of private road that provides the only access by land to the park. — Kevin Griffin Vancouver Sun

in 2012. In Central Coquitlam, the average home built in the 1980s had a 2013 assessed value of $800,000, compared to $740,000 the previous year. On Burke Mountain, the average home built in 2009 jumped in assessed value to $840,000 from $800,000 in 2012. In the case of Maillardville, Shum noted the greater increase is due to new zoning, and in Burquitlam, the Evergreen Line is playing a role in increasing values. In Port Moody’s Heritage Woods neighbourhood, the average home built in the late 1990s increased slightly in value to $1.1 million, compared to $1.07 million in

10-year lows. The swing in assessed value depends on where you own your home, with some neighbourhoods proving hotter than others. There are 76,000 properties on the assessment rolls in the Tri-Cities. Shum pointed out neighbourhoods like Maillardville, Burquitlam and Burke Mountain had assessment increases in the 10- to 20-per-cent range. And Coquitlam proved to have the biggest increases among the Tri-Cities for 2013. The average or “benchmark” home in Maillardville built in the 1950s had an assessed value of $677,000 for 2013, compared to $652,000

2012. In College Park, the typical home built in the 1960s increased in value to $634,000 in 2013 from $600,000 the previous year. PoCo saw the smallest increase in property values. The average home in the Citadel Heights area built in the 1990s basically remained flat at $678,000, compared to $677,000 in 2012. The value of a typical home in Mary Hill also remained similar, with assessments nudging up slightly to $478,000, compared to $470,000 in 2012. Though homeowners should be getting their paper assessments in the first couple of weeks of January, they can also go to BC Assessment’s website after Jan. 2 to check out their assessment and look for sale comparables to see if their assessment is fair. There is also recourse for residents who are unhappy with their property assessment. They can challenge it by speaking to appraisal staff or filing a formal appeal by the end of January for an independent review by an assessment panel. The panels will be held between midFebruary and mid-March. Shum noted generally less than two per cent of all assessments are appealed to a panel.

Assessed values up for 2013 In coming weeks, homeowners across the Tri-Cities will be getting a letter in the mail, which often turns out to be a sobering reminder of the value of the biggest investment of their lives. The 2013 property assessments are out, and according to BC Assessment, most TriCities homeowners will see an increase of zero to 10 per cent. However, Edward Shum, BC Assessment deputy assessor for the North Fraser region, cautioned there are areas and pockets that have declined in value since assessments were done in July. He is expecting some people to be surprised by their assessments. “I want to ensure the public doesn’t get startled when they see the assessment is potentially higher than what they believe they can currently get in the marketplace,” he told The NOW. “They need to really understand that it’s a six- to seven-month lag since the assessment notice came out.” The housing market has taken a tumble since the summer, with home sales in the Vancouver area dropping to

Opinion

Tax mentality needs to change Re: “Cities must stop overspending,” opinion column by Laura Jones, Friday, Dec. 28. I totally agree with your comments, however I find that we face two major obstacles if we hope to see any change on the spending front. One is the thought amongst the majority of citizens that if spending decreases there will be a reduction in services. For some reason people do not feel that they can expect our politicians To The and government workers to be able to provide a high level of service at a low cost. Until the majority of people raise their expectation of both politicians and government service workers, services will continue to be provided on an either/or basis.

The other hurdle is the “polling” conducted by most municipalities. On a yearly basis, citizens are polled for their thoughts about taxes and levels of service. (Coquitlam uses Ipsos Reid to conduct its polls.) Our politicians put a lot of emphasis on these polls. In Coquitlam, there is about a 50-50 split between citizens wanting lower taxes and those wanting improved services. So until we can change the mentalEditor ity that, yes we can have both improved services and lower costs, and until the polling numbers change to reflect that citizens want lower taxes, the status quo will remain and our tax rate will remain unchanged.

Our View

Start small and you can achieve big

W

e’re not sure who said it first — Albert Einstein? Mark Twain? Benjamin Franklin? Mystery writer Rita Mae Brown? None of the above? — but you’ve probably heard this famous quote: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” While true “insanity” is, unfortunately, a little more complicated than that, this quote seems relevant in the first weeks of a new year — as many of us sign up for gym memberships we’ll never use, fill our fridges with broccoli and tofu we’ll never eat, and vow to suddenly stop smoking, drinking, gambling or whatever other vice we want to lose. The intentions are good, but as anyone who’s failed to achieve a new year’s resolution could tell you, it’s next to impossible to do a 180 overnight. Of course, there are success stories, but they’re in the minority. For the rest of us, making new year’s resolutions either goes by the wayside or becomes a bit of a joke — “Oh, sure, this is the year I’ll lose 20 pounds!” What can we do to turn this situation around? Maybe the solution is to set much more modest goals, ones we can actually achieve. Instead of a goal to lose 20 pounds, for example, we could set a goal of drinking one fewer can of soda a day. Once that becomes a pattern, we could set another small goal, such as looking for a parking spot as far away as possible from the front doors of the mall, instead of trying to snag the one that involves the least amount of walking. This approach won’t yield results overnight, but if we can achieve a small success, it might boost us to take the next step and, eventually, achieve our larger goal. Whether you’ve made a resolution or not, we wish you all the best in 2013.

known climatologist Andrew Weaver is running. He will either win, or take enough B.C. Liberal and NDP voters to allow incumbent Ida Chong to hang on in a tight race. But the Greens are simply not a force on the broader provincial stage. While it’s incorrect to assume Green voters are more closely aligned with the NDP than any other party, it is likely their vote eats into NDP support more substantially than others. Therefore, if the election turns out to be close between the B.C. Liberals and the NDP, at best the Greens will play a spoiler role and allow the B.C. Liberals to win a few tight races. 4. Will any single issue dominate politics in the coming year? It is unlikely one new issue will suddenly emerge as the key issue as the election cycle heads into the home stretch. The B.C. Liberals will insist the big issue is which party is most reliable and competent when it comes to managing the economy, while the NDP will continue to stress its theme that the next vote comes down to who you can trust, and that it’s time for a change at the top. Other issues will come and go, but in the end, those two themes will be hammered home again and again as voting day nears. You might as well get used to it.

Is the message not to drink and drive getting through to young people? Our teen columnist weighs in with his opinion. stop full of people in Moscow just recently. People like me can tell these tragedies over and over again, but when you’re standing in front of your car, bottle in hand, it’s up to you to think.

Think about the lives you’re about to gamble with. Not one is worth the price of losing. Think about the people you’d hurt, not with your car but with the news of your death or the deaths you’ve caused.

It’s not a hard decision to make, even for someone as liquored up as me … maybe. Kevin Funk is a Grade 12 student at Dr. Charles Best Secondary in Coquitlam.

A community dinner, free ice skating and on-ice entertainment on Friday, Jan. 4 will kick off the City of Port Coquitlam’s year-long birthday celebration. Set to run from 5 to 9:30 p.m. at the Port Coquitlam Recreation Complex, the 100th Birthday Launch Party is the first of a series of community events and legacy projects to be held throughout 2013 to commemorate the city’s 100th birthday. The city was inaugurated on Mar. 7, 1913 after splitting off from largely rural Coquitlam, according to a press release. What began as a hub of industry centered around the Canadian Pacific Railway operations has evolved into a diverse community of 57,000 with a central location in Metro Vancouver, a healthy base of business and industry, 271 hectares of protected parks and trails, established neighbourhoods and a strong sense of community spirit, known as PoCo Pride. “We have a lot to be proud of in Port Coquitlam. As we mark our 100th birthday throughout 2013, we’ll not only celebrate where we came from, but also look for ways to build on what we’ve achieved,” Mayor Greg Moore said. “It’s a great opportunity for our residents to learn more about where they live, to tap into our community spirit, and to find out what makes Port Coquitlam unique from other cities.” Planning for the city’s centennial has been spearheaded by Port Coquitlam’s Spirit of BC Community Committee, which coordinated the successful community celebrations and legacy projects associated with the 2010 Winter Olympics. The year-long celebration is intended to honour the city’s past, present and future and reflect all aspects of the community. “We will be celebrating history in the making and everyone in Port Coquitlam can be in on it,” said committee chair Rénee Chadwick. “Over the past year, the Spirit Committee has been connecting with a variety of community businesses and organizations, and collectively we have planned activities and events for all ages. We invite everyone to take part in the festivities and catch the centennial spirit.” Plans include signature events such as the Jan. 4 launch party along with events organized by community groups such as the Port Coquitlam Heritage and Cultural Society. Existing community events will take on a centennial flavour, including Spirit Week, May Day, Canada Day, the Terry Fox Run and the Rivers & Trails Festival. The Spirit Committee is also in the process of setting up a fund to provide grants to local groups that want to host a 100th themed event,

Among the junior boys challengers is Coquitlam’s Habkirk rink, one of the youngest rinks in competition in the under-21 tournament. Action begins at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday to Friday, with playoffs starting Saturday 8 a.m. The championship round is Sunday, with girls final slated for 3 p.m., while the boys throw their stones at 7 p.m. WOLVES STALKING The Coquitlam Metro-Ford junior Wolves set their sights on first place in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League’s Under-21 league with a game Saturday, 5 p.m., at Coquitlam Town Centre East turf, against the North Van Average Joes. TURN THE PAGE That’s what the Port Moody Panthers hope to do with a new calendar. The junior B hockey club looks to end a 10-game losing skid on Saturday, 7:45 p.m. (at the Port Moody Arena), when they host the Grandview Steelers. The Panthers have locked up last place in their division with the recent slide.

FREE RANGE BIRD: The Terry Fox junior Ravens’ Conner McKee, left, helped lead the charge in what was a perfect march through B.C. junior varsity football waters in 2012. The Ravens went undefeated, closing out the season in early December by capturing the B.C. title.

Of gridiron triumphs and boxla setbacks T A I here were accomplishments aplenty by local athletes and teams in 2012, from teenage gridiron stars who rolled undefeated through a long football season to be crowned provincial champions, to the Coquitlam junior Adanacs’ fourth straight Minto Cup run — and second straight runnerup status. Here is a roundup of all things Tri-Cities when it comes to sports, following last week’s Top-Six list, that hits most of the high notes and a few tough rolls.

RAVENS SET UP PERFECT RUN

P

erfection doesn’t come easy — it just looks that way. The Terry Fox Ravens completely dominated the B.C. junior varsity high school football scene in 2012, wrapped up perfectly with a 14-7 victory over the St. Thomas More Knights at BC Place. They began the playoffs by blasting Lord Tweedsmuir 36-6, but had a preview of a tighter test in the semifinal, when they edged Mount Doug 14-7. In the final, Conner McKee set the tone by throwing a pair of touchdown passes, to Dylan Foulds and Mike West, and pulled down four interceptions on

music

defence. McKee was presented with the playoff MVP award. Fox finished the year 11-0.

TOUGH FINISH TO STRONG SEASON

t had a little more drama than most years, as the Coquitlam junior Adanacs found themselves in an actual battle for league domination. They ended up edging the Delta Islanders by two points for the regular season crown, despite a forfeiture. In the playoffs, they picked up steam and toppled Delta 4-1 in the B.C. final. At the Minto Cup national championships in Ontario, Coquitlam advanced to the best-of-three final for a fourth consecutive season but couldn’t match the Orangeville Northmen’s offence in losses of 19-6 and 9-4. “We knew it was do or die (in Game 2), so it was a bounce-back game that we had to win,” remarked graduating sniper Robert Church. The club thrived with the league’s top goaltender David DiRuscio, league scoring champ Matthew Dinsdale, and top rookie Challen Rogers.
