More food carts coming Coquitlam is newest city to welcome carts John Kurucz Up to 10 spots across Coquitlam could be home to food carts this summer. Council unanimously approved issuing a request for information and expression of interest (RFEI) Monday, which represents a preliminary step in allowing vendors to submit applications to ply their trades on city property. The majority of the locations are in the Town Centre area. The others are near Blue Mountain Park, Douglas College, and in Maillardville near the intersection of Brunette Avenue and Lougheed Highway. “It is intended that the program will be up and running, hopefully, for the summertime this year,” city solicitor Heather Bradfield said Monday. City staff will weigh a handful of factors in reviewing the applications: the type of products vendors will sell, the equipment that will be used, and the times the vendors will be willing to operate. The final locations will be determined by Bill Susak, the city’s manager of engineering and public works. Demand, accessibility and public safety will be factored into the decisions around each potential location.  CONT. ON PAGE 4, see CITY.

NDP leader Adrian Dix was the guest at a Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce lunch Tuesday at the Executive Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre.

Dix brings message to Coquitlam NDP leader says if elected, he’ll tax big banks, use carbon tax revenues to fund transit Jeremy Deutsch

If voters have become accustomed to the brutality of provincial politics in B.C., they may be in for a bit of a surprise when they head to the polls in May. NDP Leader Adrian Dix was in Coquitlam Tuesday to address the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce, and he brought with him the positive tone he’s been preaching since he was chosen by the party two years ago. He suggested the quality of public participation is not well reflected in the political debate, and he wants to

see it change. “I think the time has passed when we should be attacking people personally who are contributing to making our communities better, and I’m not going to do it,” Dix told the chamber. Instead, the NDP leader said he wants to have a better debate about the issues — like housing and transportation — which he argued affect everyone in the province. “These issues require complicated leadership, people working together for change,” he said. “And a politics that is increasingly personal and nasty doesn’t foster that after an election.” Dix also touched on a few initiatives an NDP government would consider if

elected, during his roughly 30-minute speech. He argued the key economic issue in the coming years will be a shortage of skilled workers in B.C. The NDP leader noted his party would reinstate non-refundable education grants to help address the issue, while paying for them by reinstating a minimum tax on the big banks. Dix also weighed in on the ongoing funding kerfuffle with TransLink, suggesting an NDP government would consider using some of the carbon tax revenues to fund transit. He added that any decision to change the structure of the transportation authority would need to include

input from municipalities, businesses and the general community. Dix also hinted that an NDP government isn’t prepared to make big changes if elected. “These times require us to be clear about what we’re going to do, things that we’ll support only when the money becomes available,” he said. “I don’t think it makes sense, for our supporters or for those who might oppose the NDP, for us to propose things that we can’t afford to pay for.” However, when asked about a timeline for when the NDP would release its entire election platform, Dix said  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see DIX.

Signs around bridge a danger, city says John Kurucz At best, the confusion could translate into frustration, anxiety or a delayed commute. At worst, it could lead to an accident or death. Those were the fears coming out of Coquitlam council chambers Monday, as staff and council seem to be at loggerheads with the province in trying to provide accurate and concise signage in the area around the new Port Mann Bridge. Specifically, council was angered by provincial rules

that stipulate the use of numbers to denote highway names instead of the common names themselves: Barnet Highway being referred to as Highway 7A; Lougheed Highway appearing on signs as Highway 7; and Route 7B being used as a place name for the Mary Hill Bypass. City officials are also adamant that the city’s name be included on as many signs as possible. “We’ve got to get this fixed,” said Mayor Richard Stewart. “We have to have better signage here, because otherwise we’re going to end up

with accidents. We’re going to end up with people hurt.” Staff have made some inroads in the debate since the issue first arose, and were able to get ministry officials to include “Coquitlam” on six signs on the east side of the Port Mann Bridge. “Staff have taken this matter as far as they can at the staff level … we’ve had some wins,” said Bill Susak, the city’s manager of engineering and public works. “The province, however, insists that Lougheed Highway should not be called Lougheed Highway but remain as Route 7.

“It is a policy of the province, evidently.” Compounding the city’s frustration is the fact that the province’s regulations are being applied to city-owned roadways — all of the Barnet Highway and most of the Lougheed Highway are owned by the city. “Lougheed Highway isn’t even their highway. It’s our road, but they’re insisting on applying their policy to our road. And I think that’s an example of really not working with the municipalities,” said Coun. Selina Robinson. The NOW attempted to contact Mary Polak, the provincial

minister of transportation and infrastructure, though she did not respond to an interview request. However, ministry spokesperson Kate Trotter explained some of the parameters of the province’s sign plan in November, when the issue was first addressed at a council meeting. “The use of the numerical reference for highways is a consistent practice used across the province and avoids inconsistencies that generate from jurisdictional boundaries and local references to areas along the highway network,” Trotter said at the time.

Coroner’s inquest set for jail death City to dump Jeremy Deutsch Roland Joseph Bourque died on the morning of April 2, 2012 at the North Fraser Pretrial Centre in Port Coquitlam. Now, the BC Coroners Service has called an inquest into the death of the 69-year-old inmate to find out exactly how he died. No date has been set for the inquest, but an announcement will be made once one has been finalized. According to a press release, presiding coroner Vincent Stancato and a jury will hear evidence from subpoenaed witnesses to determine the facts surrounding the death.

While the jury may not, by law, make any findings of legal responsibility, it will have the opportunity to make recommendations aimed at preventing deaths under similar circumstances in the future. Coroner Barb McLintock wouldn’t release the cause of death, but noted it was not natural. There were reports at the time that Bourque’s death was a possible suicide. His death was the first of two at the jail in 2012. Last July, emergency crews were called to the prison after corrections staff found an inmate in his cell in medical distress. The inmate was identified as David William Brodrick, 44.

Attempts were made to revive the man, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. IHIT was called in to investigate, while BC Corrections conducted a critical incident review to examine the circumstances of the death. No further details of the case have been released. Work and safety conditions at the jail have come under increased attention following the death of the two inmates. In October, WorkSafe BC agreed to inspect the jail as part of an assessment of all nine provincial jails. The inspections are expected to take up to a year to complete.

its garbage contract

Coquitlam city council has approved a report that will see a request for proposals for a new solid waste and recycling contract. The move is aimed at improving service levels and developing strategies for more waste diversion through various recycling techniques, according to a press release from the city. The new contract is expected to be in place in July of 2014. The current holder of the city’s solid waste contract is Smithrite Disposal Ltd.

City will rank food vendors  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

Once the city decides on the “best” vendors available, applicants will then be ranked accordingly. The highest-ranked applicants will be offered their preferred locations, while other applicants will be offered locations based on their rankings, and the locations remaining after higher-ranked applicants have been chosen. Port Moody was the first Tri-Cities municipality to allow food carts, as part of a program that began last summer at Rocky Point Park. Recently, Port Moody council chopped the number of vendors allowed in the park to two from four, after established food sellers raised concerns.

Dix won’t release party platform  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

his party needs to wait until after the provincial budget comes down later this month. As for courting the business community, a block of voters not typically associated with voting NDP, Dix said it’s more important for business and government to come together after the election. It also appears his positive approach to the campaign is rubbing off on his foes from the other side of the political spectrum. Coquitlam-Burke Mountain Liberal MLA Doug Horne said he agrees with Dix when it comes to the tone of politics in the province. “I think we should be more positive generally,” he told The NOW. “I think that’s what most people don’t understand — we don’t necessarily disagree with what the priorities are, it’s how we actually get to where we need to get.” Horne added he doesn’t see his party raising corporate taxes or taxes on big banks, and said the Liberals are instead focused on trying to grow the economy.

Attempted B&E in Port Moody Jeremy Deutsch Port Moody police are asking residents in the College Park area to be on the lookout for any suspicious activity, following the second attempted break-in in the neighbourhood in a week. Police were called to the neighbourhood Monday morning after a resident caught a man trying to break into a

home. The suspect fled. The department’s police dog, Sabre, was called out to track the man, but he managed to get away. No one was hurt in the incident and nothing was stolen from the home, police say. It’s the sixth residential break and enter recorded in the city so far in 2013. “It’s not a high number by any means, but any time a house is broken into it’s an unfortunate thing,” said Port Moody

police spokesman Const. Luke Van Winkel, adding it’s difficult to say if any of the break-ins are related. He said community groups have been notified, while the department intends to step up patrols in the area during the daytime. In the meantime, police are reminding residents to lock doors when they’re gone for the day and call the non-emergency line if they see anything out of place in their neighbourhood.

Coquitlam says no to pub plan John Kurucz The location of Micky’s Public House is both a blessing and a curse, according to city officials. The owner of the Coquitlam-based bar — formerly known as the Two Parrots Pub — applied for a series of changes to its operating model Monday, including an increase in capacity and the size of its licensed area, and an extension in the number of hours it can serve alcohol. But those changes went too far, according to council, which opted not to support the application due to the pub’s location.

“If we’re going to establish these places where people can go out and have a drink in the evening, we want them to be able to get home safely,” said Mayor Richard Stewart. “And this is a place where you have to drive to it, and you have to drive home.” The proposal for the bar, located at 170 Golden Dr., would have seen the capacity for its liquor primary licence increase to 247 patrons from 215. The extended hours of service would have allowed the bar to stay open for an hour later — until 2 a.m. — on Fridays and Saturdays, and until 1:30 a.m. from Monday through Thursday. Currently, the pub is allowed to stay open until

midnight from Monday to Thursday, and until 1 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. An additional request would have paved the way for the pub to open at 9 a.m. And while most councillors bemoaned its location in relation to transit options, nearly everyone on council agreed that the pub’s location — it’s situated in an industrial area — is ideal in terms of not causing a disturbance to nearby residents or businesses. In fact, the only two pieces of public correspondence the city received on the proposed changes stated no opposition to the move. Couns. Brent Asmundson and Terry O’Neill voted against not supporting the application.


BC Family Day

“This is already an establishment that sells a lot of liquor working in this place,” O’Neill said. “It wants to now try to improve its business and better serve the public. So on that narrow ground I will oppose this.” Asmundson said the hours of operation won’t necessarily dissuade people from drinking and driving, and noted that he was previously struck by an impaired driver at 10 p.m. Council’s decision on Monday will now be forwarded to the provincial Liquor Control and Licensing Branch, and will serve as the city’s input on the application. Couns. Lou Sekora, Linda Reimer and Neal Nicholson were absent from the vote.

Port expansion raises red flags


ith aggressive expansion coming to the amount of coal and grain Port Metro Vancouver exports, it’s time to take a closer look at the price our lungs are going to pay. Vancouver Coastal Health and the Fraser Health Authority, along with more than two dozen public health organizations, have raised red flags and asked for more health-impact assessments of this increased export activity. But the port enjoys federal jurisdiction, meaning provincial and local processes and standards can be skipped over at whim. All too often the port appears to operate in a bubble, pursuing its own goals in isolation from the community around it. But, sadly, the bubble they seal themselves in doesn’t contain the particulate drifting off the heaps of coal and grain destined for the burners and appetites of Asia. The port says its own testing is rigorous, but that’s not enough. As we’ve seen many times in the past, Port Metro Vancouver has long preferred “beg forgiveness” over “ask permission” when it comes to how its activities will affect the communities around them. Smoking rates are at their lowest in decades as people are finally clued in to the dangers of the carcinogenic particulates involved and have made the decision to avoid them. But no one can decide what’s in the air they breathe in their own communities. If Port Metro Vancouver isn’t going to be proactive in dealing with ongoing healthimpact assessments, then it’s time to give our health authorities the tools they need so we can all breathe a little easier. — guest editorial from the North Shore News

Then the chief clerk of the B.C. legislature blasted Doyle in front of clerks and speakers from other provinces gathered at the legislature for a conference (his comments were inadvertently sent out over the in-house speaker phone system, and therefore were piped right into the press gallery for reporters to hear). Doyle has also publicly ridiculed the all-party committee that offered him a two-year extension, and demanded one of the members be removed from the committee (an extraordinary statement by an officer of the legislature under any circumstance). Perhaps Doyle’s outburst signals he’s had it with B.C. and is indeed ready to return home Down Under. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

Why don’t police just monitor the bad guys? “I have always wondered why, if most of the crimes are committed by a handful of habitual criminals, then why don’t the police on every shift just use surveillance techniques to monitor these few perpetrators? We need to conserve our scarce municipal resources and policing costs seem to be a large factor in the city’s budget. If we spent the resources following these few individuals it seems to me we would save a lot of time and money.” Bill Johnston Coquitlam Bill, I am worried that some readers might think I submitted this question under an assumed name because it really hits the bull’s eye of how the Coquitlam RCMP “does” policing in our jurisdiction and why we do it the way we do. The phenomenon you refer to is called the Pareto Principle or the 80-20 rule, and the basic premise is that, for many events, roughly 80 per cent of the effects can be attributed to 20 per cent of the causes. Applying that principle to local crime and safety issues has fundamentally changed the way Coquitlam RCMP operates. First, allow me to indulge in a little local history. Before 2005, the Coquitlam RCMP’s approach to policing (which was practised in most other jurisdictions as well) was primarily reactive. Basically, our members spent their time running from one call to another and conducting follow-up investigations. There was a lot of excellent work being done by my colleagues but the approach wasn’t what you would call strategic and, despite all the effort expended,

It requires a lot of equipment, and a sizable team with the experience and training required to make sure the project’s results are useful for investigators and admissible in court. It also requires a lot of time. If trying to be responsible and accountable in the cost of policing is the intention, then doing surveillance on all prolific offenders on every shift would not be the answer. My colleagues and I pride ourselves on developing operational plans that apply the most effective tools and tactics to make the biggest possible impact on public safety, including making sure there are always cops available to respond to service calls from citizens in need. Because we know that while the 80-20 rule applies to crime and safety, we also have to take care of the leftover 20-80.

Port Moody budget discussed Jeremy Deutsch If Port Moody residents are unpleased by the prospect of forking over an extra Borden for their property taxes this year, they sure aren’t showing it. The city held a public budget consultation meeting on Jan. 31 at Inlet Centre and, much like at many meetings in the past on the topic, staff and council outnumbered residents. But that didn’t stop the city from presenting the preliminary 2013 budget, which is calling for a 6.65-per-cent tax increase. That figure works out to $113 for the average Port Moody household. City officials point out the budget isn’t set in stone. The tax increase, when factored in with the 0.3-per-cent utility rate increase, works out to a 4.3-per-cent tax increase, or an additional $116 per household. Terry Hyska was one of only a handful of residents who asked questions related to the budget. He said he’s not so worried about this year’s tax increase, but rather about what plans are in place to spur economic growth in future years as city

expenses continue to rise. “I don’t see that much new business coming to Port Moody,” Hyska told The NOW, adding the answers to his question reaffirmed what he already assumed — that the Evergreen Line has put economic development on hold. He said he’s cautiously optimistic economic development around the future transit line will bring relief to the city’s bottom line. Other topics discussed were the possibility of pay parking as a revenue generator, and the potential impact if Metro Vancouver were to move to a regional police force. A further breakdown of the budget numbers shows the bulk of the shortfall is related to an increase in salaries worth $570,000, or 1.93 per cent, and $650,000 in policing costs, which is worth another 2.21 per cent. Other items in the budget shortfall include $143,000 for the Inlet Centre fire hall debt levy, $192,000 for inflation, and $444,000 for operational service priorities. City councillors also weighed in with their thoughts about the budget. Coun. Rosemary Small said she feels the tax increase is too high and is hoping it can be reduced by one or two per cent.

“It’s very difficult. People are demanding in our city that they get good service and we’re trying to provide it,” she said. “I would not like to see us cut service for the sake of cutting taxes.” Coun. Gerry Nuttall said he’s been advocating for zeroincrease budgeting since he started on council, adding he plans to bring forward ideas to chop the increase by up to half. “We will be thoroughly discussing and debating this to get it to the very least increase we possibly can,” he said. Mayor Mike Clay suggested even though the number of people at the input session was small, the message is usually the same. “They [residents] like the service levels, but they want to make sure they’re getting value for their dollar, and so do I,” he said. Clay also cautioned that new revenue sources like pay parking could end up being just another tax on residents. He also didn’t appear in a rush to make drastic cuts in the budget to drop the taxrate increase. “You can always cut a budget, [but] what is it that you’re cutting and what’s the impact?” he asked. The total city budget for

Ultimate Comedy Show to play Evergreen


tand up, improv, sketch comedy, live music and everything in between will get the ultimate treatment from one of Canada’s best-known comics. The Roman Danylo-produced Ultimate Comedy Show makes its return to the Evergreen Cultural Centre on Saturday, Feb. 9. Best known for his appearances on shows like Corner Gas, Just for Laughs and Comedy Inc., Danylo will serve as MC for the event, and will hand the stage over to some of Canada’s most well-known comics. The sketch comedy team Titmouse, which currently stars on the CBC sketch comedy series The Eleventh Hour, is also on the bill, as is comedian Paul Bae, who’s appeared at the Montreal-based Just For Laughs Festival and has made a series of high-profile TV appearances. David Milchard and Ken Lawson, who will team up to perform as the duo Mirage, bill themselves as the “World’s Greatest Improvised Rock ‘n’ Roll Band.” Tickets range in price between $15 and $35. Some of the evening’s repertoire will feature mature content not suitable for all ages. For details, see

Film screening Friday

The Port Moody Film Society will screen an off-the-beaten path offering this Friday (Feb. 8), as the Inlet Theatre hosts the award-winning movie The Human Resources Manager. Billed as part comedy and part drama, the Israeli film references only one character by name — and that character is dead. The rest of the cast is presented to the audience through monikers and nicknames, while the plot follows the main character to a postU.S.S.R satellite country in an effort to return the corpse of a former employee to her Eastern European homeland. A winner of five Israeli Film Academy Awards in 2010, including Best Director and Best Picture, The Human Resources Manager will be screened at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5 at the door, along with an annual $5 membership.

From there, a concert featuring students from Porter, Glen, Rochester and Riverview elementary schools will get underway at noon.

PoCo residents will soon get a glimpse into the past, while looking forward to the future, through a revolutionary new interactive exhibit that opens up at the PoCo Rec Centre on Wednesday, Feb. 13. Illuminating Port Coquitlam will serve as a digital art installation that will use projection screens, photos, art, poetry, video Kurucz and animation to tell the city’s story. The project will include two nine-foot by 16-foot rear projection screens with superimposed images created by artist Stuart Ward. The end result will see the lobby of the rec centre transformed into a glowing, interactive art wall. “This is a unique way to celebrate our past and show how our citizens interpret our community,” PoCo Mayor Greg Moore said in a Choir wants new members press release. “We’re taking this presentation The Ignite Choir, based out of Coquitlam’s to a place where thousands of people are comEagle Ridge Bible Fellowship Church, is looking and going.

Year of the Snake may bring longterm success

Add flavor and excitement to your family dinner Ring in the Chinese new year with exciting flavours of the Far East straight to your home. For a meal idea that is quick and easy to prepare, try the Braised Chicken recipe below. Braised Chicken Thighs with Chinese Broccoli Serves: 4, Prep time: 5 minutes, Cook time: 30 minutes, Total time: 35 minutes Ingredients: • 1 tsp (5 mL) vegetable oil • 8-9 chicken thighs, skin-on, bone-in (4 lb/2 kg) • 3 cups (750 mL) finely sliced brown mushrooms • 1 jar (355 mL) VH Szechuan Stir-Fry Sauce or the General Tao Stir-Fry Sauce • 1 lb (500 g) Chinese broccoli

• 1 cup (250 mL) water Directions: • Heat oil in Dutch oven or large saucepan over medium-high heat. Brown chicken on both sides, about 8 minutes total. Remove chicken and set aside. • Add mushrooms to pan and cook over high heat until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Place chicken in pan with the Stir-Fry Sauce and 1 cup (250 mL) water; cover and simmer over low heat until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 12 minutes. • Meanwhile, in a large pot of lightly salted boiling water, cook broccoli until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain broccoli and serve alongside chicken once it is ready. Tip: Any green vegetable makes a great side dish for this chicken.

Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. In China, it is also known as the ‘Spring Festival’, the literal translation of the modern Chinese name (see Names in Chinese below). Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally ran from Chinese New Year’s Day itself, the first day of the first month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month. The evening preceding Chinese New Year’s Day is an occasion for Chinese families to gather for the annual reunion dinner. Because the Chinese calendar is lunisolar, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the “Lunar New Year”. Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festival in the Chinese calendar. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions.

Chinese New Year 2013 is the year of the Snake. On February 10 we enter the year of the Water Snake. Noted for their grace, complexity and poise, Snakes are also a symbol of wisdom. It’s this intelligence and ability to solve problems that promises 2013 will be one of steady progress and longterm success. Although rational, Snakes are highly intuitive, and so the combination of logic and instinct will be an asset particularly in the world of business. Apart from being hardworking, career-oriented and ambitious Snakes are known for

having the Midas touch. However, shortcuts won’t yield results, only focus and attention to detail. The Snake’s mysterious and sneaky traits can also be used to uncover loopholes. According to Feng Shui experts we can expect upward trends particularly in industries involving finance, education, media, metals and minerals. On an individual level, most can also hope to improve their current financial situation. All in all, many will emerge from this year stronger, wiser, better off and with a well-deserved pat on the back!

So instead, I choose to reflect on the overall ride we have taken, the paths crossed, friends made, adventures survived and just how far we have come. And I thank The NOW for giving me this opportunity to record some of the fabulous memories that we’ve made. I may never be the “best,” but I sure am enjoying the ride. And I don’t need to be the best, because “best” always implies there is a worse, be it our own selves the day before or somebody else. We are not competing as parents and there’s no point in beating ourselves up over how badly yesterday might have gone (even if it went as badly as our trip to Mayne Island in 2011). But if we stop, breathe deeply and smell their freshly cleaned hair after bath time, or watch their wonderment as they run around in new snow in their pyjamas and maybe listen to them giggling hysterically over a new joke, perhaps we can bask in the warm and fuzzy loveliness that only comes from being a parent. To all the moms and dads out there, buckle up tight because it’s a hell of a ride, but that’s why we came to this amusement park — for the fun! Go, enjoy and most important of all, remember that YOU ROCK!

Bicycle riding tips to give your toddlers more fun

(MS) — The milestone of riding a bike is a big one for kids and their parents. With new equipment, toddlers can reach that two-wheeled milestone earlier than ever and enjoy many sidewalks and bike

paths together.

According to experts, children 12 to 18 months are not bicycle-ready, as they lack pedalling skills and their neck muscle strength is insufficient to

allow them to support the weight of a helmet and to endure riding on rougher terrain. Instead, children in this age group can build their strength and balance by using items such as rocking horses.

Trailers are a sound alternative for bringing the baby along. They are lightweight, sturdy and roomy enough for additional items. Parents are advised to make sure the trailer is equipped with a tall flag alerting traffic to its presence. If the trailer’s bulky size is daunting, you can opt for a mounted seat instead. Once a child reaches 18 months, mounted bike

seats are sleek, easy to install, and give parents another way to ride a bike with a baby. However, when dismounting, keeping the bike upright can be difficult, experts say. Though front-mounted seats offer better balance, they can interfere with the rider’s ability to pedal and steer, so it is recommended to test out both seats before choosing.

Once a toddler wants his own set of wheels, rideons and tricycles will help him or her get used to bike riding and will help improve coordination and learn balance. If your child exhibits signs of pedalling and steering abilities, it may be time to graduate to a two-wheeled bike — and without the need for training wheels.

40 YEARS of Quality


Nowadays, kids transition straight to balance bikes, two-wheeled bikes without pedals. This concept has parents very pleased by how quickly their little kids learn to ride a real bike. Erin Ruddy, the editorin-chief of What’s UP! magazine, put her threeyear-old son on a balance bike and said she was amazed to see him riding with the rest of the family almost immediately. “It is incredible,” says Ruddy. “We now go on bike rides as a family. He picked it up right away.” One example is the PlasmaBike. Free from cables, chains and pedals, it has a sleek design and helps build bike riding confidence at an early stage. PlaSmart tells us no matter which model parents choose, they will be able to enjoy watching their child master the art of gliding, while gaining confidence every “stride” of the way.

How to encourage kids to be more physically active


time spent watching television or playing video games, will likely be more successful at instilling a love of physical activity as well. It is recommended parents limit their child’s time in front of the television to one to two hours per day and that includes the time children spend playing video games. To further reduce kids’ time watching TV, don’t allow televisions in their bedrooms, as that will only make it harder to monitor just how much time kids are spending in front of their TVs. • Remember that physical activity should be fun. Not all kids are athletic and some will likely bemoan participating in recreational sports leagues. But that doesn’t mean parents should give up on encouraging physical activity. Instead, find a physical activity that your child finds fun and encourage his or her participation.

Parents know it’s not always easy to get kids to be more physically active. But the following are a few tips parents might find useful when encouraging their kids to embrace a more active lifestyle. • Give toys that encourage physical activity. Kids love toys, and their toys will dictate how they spend their days. Instead of buying the latest video game console, give kids toys that encourage them to be active. This can include balls, bicycles, jump ropes or even a backyard swing set. Kids who embrace these activities at a young age are more likely to continue doing so into adolescence and adulthood. • Reduce time spent in front of the television. Parents who can effectively minimize the amount of time their child spends in front of the television, whether reducing their

Score Card

Seniors jockey for hardwood playoff spots

A true shooter, Coquitlam junior product Ben McIntosh, shown above during the 2010 Minto Cup championship finals, was tabbed first overall by the Maple Ridge Burrards in Monday’s Western Lacrosse Association junior draft.

Coquitlam loads up on righthanders Dan Olson


he list featured a bonanza of talent, whether your need was scoring, defensive acumen, or a specific stick side. By the end of Monday’s Western Lacrosse Association junior draft, every team left the Langley Events Centre feeling as though they had personally discovered the resting place of Richard III. The Coquitlam Adanacs were no different. Selecting fifth overall, the senior boxla squad watched the opening few minutes with deep interest and weren’t disappointed when their turn came. Coquitlam drafted hometown sniper Marty Dinsdale with its first choice, after fellow junior Adanacs Ben McIntosh, lefthanded defender Jeff Cornwall and Robert Church went first, third and fourth overall, respectfully. “The three righthanders were all really great players — Dinsdale, Church and McIntosh,” senior Adanacs general manager Randy Delmonico said.

“We’re very happy to have Marty Dinsdale. The role he’s playing in Calgary (with the National Lacrosse League Roughnecks) is a defensive transition guy, and he can stay out on offensive. But we see him as an offensive guy with us.” The 21-year-old Dinsdale was thrilled to be trading a junior Adanac uniform for a senior version. “It’s great. I didn’t know what to expect coming in (to the draft), but to hear Coquitlam call my name was like a dream come true,” said Dinsdale, who led all B.C. Junior league scorers with 38 goals and 95 points over 16 games. A well-known need for righthanded depth created a number of scenarios for the Adanacs, including the possibility that Church would slide to fifth after New Westminster used the second and third overall choices to take Delta’s Logan Schuss and Cornwall. However, despite Burnaby’s weak left side and a history for going off the board, the Lakers snapped up Church with the fourth pick, to some chagrin. “I didn’t think Burnaby was going to take Church,” said Delmonico. “We were trying to swing a deal with Burnaby, a trade where we would have

gotten their sixth overall pick and used it to get both Church and Dinsdale, but it wasn’t to be.” The first round concluded with New West juniors Tyler Digby and Brandon Goodwin going to Burnaby and Langley, respectively. The Adanacs would go in a different direction with their second pick, ninth choice overall, when they selected another jr. Adanac product — Kevin Neufeld — to bolster an already strong defence. His offensive stats — five goals over an 84-game junior career — weren’t why Neufeld went early in the second round. “He’s a stay-at-home defender. We’re pretty full on the left side on both ends of the floor but we thought Neufeld was a good fit,” noted Delmonico. “He’s hard to get around.” The team chose another solid backend player in Cody Hawkins of Delta with its second choice in the second round, and pulled Port Moody’s Jimmy Delaney, via Okotoks, in the third round. Delaney, who spent last year in Alberta, played

It may have taken 500-plus years to find King Richard III’s final resting place, but all will be decided this week when it comes to both the senior girls and boys basketball standings. Both circuits wrap up their regular seasons with a flurry of action. This week’s must-see schedule also includes junior hockey intensity, a taekwondo tournament, and a soccer test. IN THE PAINT The Pinetree Timberwolves and Dr. Charles Best Blue Devils have had their ups and downs during the senior boys basketball season. On Friday (7:30 p.m. at Dr. Charles Best) a spot amongst the Fraser Valley North league’s top-eight is on the line. The 3-5 T-wolves will look to deliver a tough blow to the 2-5 Blue Devils. FULL HOUSE The Under-21 Cup playoffs are on in men’s soccer, and the Coquitlam Metro-Ford junior Wolves have their sights set on taking down Guildford. The two clubs meet Saturday, 5 p.m. at Coquitlam Town Centre east BACK ON TRACK After a hard, tough-luck road swing that covered five games, the Coquitlam Express return to the Poirier Sports Centre this weekend to launch an eight-game homestand. On Saturday (7 p.m.) Coquitlam hosts the division-leading Surrey Eagles. On Family Day, the Express host a 2 p.m. tilt against longtime rival the Chilliwack Chiefs. WELCOME TO THE DOJO Simon Fraser University’s West Gym will be the site for the 2013 B.C. Taekwon-Do championships, where all belts and competitive levels will vie for B.C. bragging rights. The meet, hosted by Triumph Taekwondo of Port Coquitlam, runs Sunday, starting at 9 a.m. Black belts compete in the afternoon.

Ravens wing past Centaurs Dan Olson

Rapids show hot hand at Piper Classic The Riverside Rapids are getting near where they should be — and just in time, too. The senior girls basketball team has only had a few weeks with a full roster but has layered some clutch performances against some highly rated opponents. Their run over the past week included a 7573 win over Maple Ridge, where Fiona Beales netted 26 points and Grade 8 guard Shae Sanchez contributed 15. At the Piper Classic in North Vancouver, the Rapids posted a 2-1 record, with their lone loss a 71-70 setback to Oak Bay. “We were down by quite a bit to [Oak Bay] and one of their starters got hurt,” recalled

Riverside coach Paul Langford. “We came back from a fair bit down, but just kind of missed it by that much.” Desha Puri enjoyed one of her better games of the season with 32 points, including six treys. Tenika Thue chipped in 11 points. The wins were even more positive, as the Rapids topped W.J. Mouat 76-53 behind 17point games from Vanessa Gee and Sanchez, and a 68-50 triumph over Dover Bay. In that game, Sanchez set the tone on offence with 15 points, while Beales contributed 12 points and seven steals. “I think we’re seeing who we are a little bit now. We’re showing a little more consistency.”

Adanacs add key pieces front and back  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 20.

junior with the Port Coquitlam Saints in 2011, tallying 16 goals in eight games. “He has the potential to be very, very good. We were thinking he could fly under the radar,” added the GM. Coquitlam would also select PoCo’s Cody L’Arrivee, Coquitlam native Colton Dow (via Langley), netminder Patrick Bayliss, Port Moody junior B sniper Cam Paterson, PoCo’s Kris Liset, Michael Kennedy and Jake Baker. Although touted as a draft deep in snipers, the Adanacs were equally enthused by the defenders available. By adding the likes of Neufeld, Hawkins and possibly L’Arrivee to a backline that includes captain Bruce Murray, Jon Harnett, Travis Cornwall and Damon

Edwards, the club could have the answer to the opposition’s high-powered attacks. “We thought we could be

more physical, and we want to be a physically imposing team to play. Even more than we were last year.”

On Friday you’ll have forgotten you ever read this newspaper.

Centennial completed a hearty comeback on back-to-back treys from Pritpal Gill and Buren. “They just never quit,” noted Cents coach Alan Kaselj. “We were just moving the ball really well. We just kept battling and battling and kept it close enough for a couple of shots to make the difference.” It came on the heels of a 56-44 win over Maple Ridge, where Buren netted 21 points. In other senior boys action, Fraser Heights nudged Pinetree 65-57 and North Surrey edged Dr. Charles Best 63-58. Pitt Meadows doubled Port Moody 84-42 and stopped Gleneagle 62-28.

Centennial’s Jason Buren, shown during action earlier this season, scored a key trey in last week’s dramatic 60-56 comeback win over Heritage Woods.

The Terry Fox Ravens still have first place in their crosshairs. However, that goal requires them to basically run the table over the final regular season games. The Ravens improved to 6-1 on Monday by stopping the Centennial Centaurs 62-33. A polished and balanced effort proved to be an early edge for Fox, who took a good lead in the first quarter and squashed the Coquitlam school’s rally attempts. “It was an OK start, we expect our guys to always start strong,” Ravens coach Steve Hanson said. “Playing Centennial is always interesting. We’ve watched some video and they like to pack the paint and force you into a perimeter game. “We prefer to get the tempo going, and we hit a handulf of threes in the first quarter to open it up.” Nic Hughes led Fox shooters with 13 points, while Trevor Casey chipped in 12 and added 17 rebounds. For the Cents, Justin Buren tallied 10 points. For the Ravens, it was a vital win as they continue their chase of undefeated Pitt Meadows for the league title. Last week they upended Maple Ridge 68-34 after coming off the Vancouver College Emerald tournament with a handsome 2-1 record. They bested Vancouver College 74-66 in the opener, and stayed close with White Rock Christian before falling 70-64. “That was a four-to-five point game and we just had one soft quarter. There were some really good signs there,”

said Hanson. They closed it out by beating Kelowna by seven points. Earning a spot on the first all-star team was Casey, while guard Jemari Reyes was named to the second squad. Hanson was pleased with the continued play of his bench, which provided some key minutes in Maple Ridge where three starters landed three fouls each in the opening quarter. The 3-5 Centaurs, meanwhile, were unable to convert the momentum gained from last week’s thrilling 60-56 triumph over Heritage Woods. In a game they never led until the final 90 seconds,

Clan women knock off Nanooks

When it comes to Nayo RaincockEkunwe, a big game on the court is like another day at the office. Sparked by another huge effort from the Toronto native, the Simon Fraser University women’s basketball team beached the University of Alaska Fairbanks Nanooks 71-55 on Saturday. Raincock-Ekunwe set the tone with 26 points and 16 rebounds, as SFU outscored the Nanooks 38-28 in the paint. “We wanted to work on improving our offensive flow,” said RaincockEkunwe. “We had no offence going for us in our last game. We focused on setting screens and moving the ball well tonight.” Port Coquitlam’s Kristina Collins posted a game-high seven assists, while chipping in five points. Another major difference was the contributions from the bench — the Clan got 19 points from its substitutions, while Alaska managed just two. At the half, SFU held a nine-point edge and fended off some strong pushback from the visiting Fairbanks crew. However, the Clan extended its lead with a dominating second half that saw them lead by as much as 20.

With the victory SFU improved to 16-3 on the season and 9-2 in Great Northwest Athletic Conference play. Their next test comes Saturday, 7 p.m. at SFU’s West Gym, against the first-place Western Washington Vikings. In their previous meeting last month, the Vikings held on to edge the Clan by two points, a loss that will be on their minds. “We have to be consistent throughout the entire week and be ready for Western Washington,” noted Collins. “We need to come with energy, we can’t be slow at all. We’re going to come out with fire and it’ll be an exciting game.” Earlier in the week, the Clan handed another northern rival a tough result. Some key free throws late in the game on Thursday helped lift SFU past Alaska Anchorage University Seawolves 60-52. Behind Erin Chambers’ 20-point performance, the Clan shook off a two-point deficit in the second half with some resilient work in the final few minutes. Raincock-Ekunwe led all players with 17 rebounds.

• A strong effort didn’t equal a polished finish as the Simon Fraser University men’s basketball team was edged 73-69 by the Montana State University Billings Yellowjackets on Saturday. Trailing by six at the half, the Clan closed the gap on Elijah Matthews’ layup that made it 37-33. That would be as close as the Burnaby team got. Taylor Dunn registered a team-high 21 points, while Anto Olah tallied 15 points and 10 boards. Ibrahim Appiah contributed 11 points. The loss drops the Clan’s record to 6-13 overall and 1-10 in the GNAC. • Dimitar Ivanov set the tone quickly for the Simon Fraser University men’s swimming team, and the rest of his team followed. The Coquitlam swimmer picked up SFU’s first individual win at the Div. 1 Seattle Univerity dual meet, topping the 800-metre freestyle with a time of 8:44.01. In quick fashion, he was followed by Adam Kautz, in the 200m free, and Julian Monks, with wins in 200m individual medley and 100m breaststroke. The Clan out-pointed Seattle 114-88 on the day.
