Medical marijuana grow-op busted

Pubs want to extend hours

Coquitlam to set guidelines as requests pour in

Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com It’s not a moratorium per se, but Coquitlam council wants to draft a new set of policies before deciding on any liquor licence changes in the city. The decision was made in part due to Monday’s discussion around yet another local business wanting to increase the hours during which it can serve alcohol. The application put forward by representatives of the Townhall Public House, formerly known as the French Quarter Pub, seeks to increase hours of liquor service from 9 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. Friday through Sunday. Currently, liquor is served at the Brunette Avenue location from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Saturday, and 11 a.m. to midnight on Sundays. Monday’s discussion was the second type of request in the last two weeks, and it’s believed other businesses are following suit in an effort to keep up with local competitors. Two weeks ago, council voted against extending hours of liquor service at Micky’s Public House, citing its location away from public transit.  CONT. ON PAGE 4, see HOURS.

A legal medical pot grow-op that has raised the ire of a Port Coquitlam neighbourhood has been shut down indefinitely by the city. The city’s Public Safety Inspection (PSI) Team, along with Coquitlam RCMP, executed a search warrant on a house located in the 900-block of Governor Court on Feb. 14, after they suspected the occupants of operating an illegal grow-op. The city confirmed the address did have three licences from Health Canada to grow marijuana legally, but the search turned up more plants in the home than allowed. Under PoCo’s bylaws, the house was slapped with a do-not-occupy order because of health and safety issues, and the homeowners will now be forced to remediate the property before being allowed back in to live. The power and water has also been cut to the home. A couple of weeks back, a group of residents appeared at a PoCo council meeting urging the city to take action against the house. The residents feared the grow-op was a danger to the neighbourhood. The latest inspection is another example of the murky rules governing legal grow-ops that have the city’s mayor waiting for new federal laws to come into effect. Mayor Greg Moore said the current rules around legal grow-ops are a drain on resources, mostly because it’s up to the city to carry out any inspections. “It has been a downloaded burden on local government to go through this process because Health Canada doesn’t tell us or the RCMP where they’re [grow-ops] located in our community,” he told The NOW. Right now, the city only carries out inspections based on evidence like a major increase in hydro use, or complaints from neighbours that have been substantiated. Moore suggested the inspection job should be handled by Health Canada. The proposed federal laws expected to take effect by March 2014 would mean medical marijuana could only be grown in federally approved facilities, like an industrial-type grow operation.  CONTINUED ON PAGE 4, see EASTERN DRIVE GROW-OP.

t’s a peaceful place of tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The portion of Hyde Creek at the end of Highland Drive on Burke Mountain is also Valerie Crocker and her young family’s second home. The salmon-spawning creek is a virtual playground for her daughter Pippa. The Crocker family moved to the area last summer and has visited the stream on a daily basis ever since. But the creek also appears to be a playground for someone or a group with two- and four-wheeled machines. Despite posted signs reminding residents the area is a sensitive salmon creek, last weekend Crocker discovered tracks running right through a portion of a spawning pond. The Burke Mountain resident suspects an ATV or quad is the culprit behind the damage. She said her husband has recently heard the sounds of ATVs in the area. “This was going too far,” Crocker told The NOW. “Someone decided their fun was more important [than the creek].” The Hyde Creek Watershed Society worked on that portion of the stream last year as part of a reclamation project. The society’s president Cliff Kelsey noted the area has proved to be one of the better ones along the waterway for reclamation. He was unaware of the recent damage but suggested the creek is a busy place for bikes and human traffic. In the past, volunteers with the

Burke Mountain resident Valerie Crocker found these tire tracks across a spawning pond on Hyde Creek. society have removed car parts and metal from the mud along the creek. The society hoped the signs would be enough for people to preserve the area. “It’s a very pleasant area,” Kelsey said. “For us, it’s really an area we want to preserve for the salmon.”

He said part of the problem is there is no fence keeping the vehicles out, and suggested the City of Coquitlam might want to get involved in putting up better protection. “These creeks are sort of a channel for wildlife to come up and down as well,” Kelsey said. “They use them as a bit of a walkway and the same for the

salmon.” “You’re losing that, and when it’s gone, it’s gone for good.” As for Crocker, she said she’s no environmentalist, but can’t understand why someone would blatantly disrespect the creek. “Someone went to a lot of trouble to build this,” she said.

They’re known for running into burning buildings, but Coquitlam firefighters can now add crime fighting to their list of duties. Police thanked the department after firefighters helped catch the driver of an alleged hit-and-run Monday afternoon. The incident began around 2:30 p.m. after the driver hit a parked car along the 1500-block of Pinetree Way near Robson Drive. Coquitlam Fire and Rescue crews were dispatched to the scene and before

police could arrive, the driver took off. That’s when the firefighters decided to step in. One fleet-footed member followed the driver on foot up a hill for a distance until Mounties picked up the chase. Assistant chief Greg Mayberry said the department usually doesn’t assist in police matters, but the firefighters in this case felt it was safe to pursue the driver. The driver likely never had a chance, as the assistant chief noted the member is a marathon runner. “He wasn’t going to get away,” he said. As for the driver, Mayberry said police arrested him at his home.

Transit police say he was carrying a knife Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

A suspect in a sexual assault case will be spending some extra time behind bars after being picked up by transit cops last week. Dwayne Dale Lacey, 31, was living at a residential treatment centre in Coquitlam prior to his arrest by police after a routine check at the Gateway SkyTrain Station in Surrey on Feb. 11. It turned out Lacey was breaching

his bail condition by being outside the residential treatment centre. He ran away from the unnamed centre in Coquitlam a few days earlier on Feb. 8. Besides not paying his fare, Transit Police allege Lacey was carrying a sheathed knife at the time, which is also a breach of his bail conditions. Lacey was kept in custody for psychiatric assessment. His next court appearance is set for March 12. twitter.com/jercoquitlamnow

Eastern Drive grow-op caught fire recently  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

The laws would take the licences out of the hands of residents. Moore said he’s spoken with local MP James Moore and Health Canada about the proposed changes, and he likes what he sees. “The federal government has announced changes that I think are going to help us all out substantially and so we’re very glad they’re making those changes,” he said. Moore noted another example recently of a home that burned up on Eastern Drive. The home had a legal licence and was inspected by

the PSI team in 2009. But after the recent fire, it was discovered the address had nearly five times the number of plants allowed. Moore said the home had a hydro bypass that went undetected. In the case of the Governor Court home, the PSI team carried out an inspection in January and found the home to be in compliance. It was only through the second inspection that city officials found the illegal crops. As for the investigation, Coquitlam Mounties aren’t saying much, other than that numerous items were seized from the residence. Police have not charged the home-

Hours debated  CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1.

“They’re now coming up one after the other because everybody will want the same kind of hours,” said Coun. Lou Sekora. “A lot of pubs don’t really want these extended hours, but because there’s an application in from other pubs, they don’t want them to have an upper hand.” The final say in these types of applications lies with the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch (LCLB). The city can lend its support for an application, or opt out of commenting — effectively signalling the city’s opposition. Council was initially leaning towards not supporting the application before deciding to ask the LCLB for more time to make its decision. If granted that reprieve, the city hopes to set up a series of guidelines for other businesses prior to the application process, one that would spell out the city’s expectations around location, proximity to transit and other factors. “We need to come up with a process so that people know what the views of council are before they go to all this trouble to submit applications,” said Coun. Neal Nicholson. City clerk Jay Gilbert noted council has not granted any establishments the ability to remain open until 2 a.m. in recent memory. Couns. Terry O’Neill and Brent Asmundson, however, argued that shouldn’t necessarily be the case. “Are we saying that there shouldn’t be nightlife in Coquitlam? We have concerns in certain areas, but there’s a lot of other younger people that may want to have some nightlife in Coquitlam,” Asmundson said. “How much do we want to stifle that with a growing community and growing urban centre?”

owner, but investigators are still combing over evidence. “From this point on, we’re going to look at what we have and then in consultation with the federal Crown, Department of Justice and Health Canada, we’ll determine what we’re going to do next,” said RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung.

Centennial Pool to close? A consultant hired by the City of Port Coquitlam to review outdoor swimming and wading pools recommends closing both Centennial Pool and Routley Wading Pool, according to a press release issued Tuesday. The consultant also recommends expanding and upgrading Sun Valley Spray Park and closing its wading pool, as well as building a spray park at Robert Hope Park and upgrading the pool to ensure operation for the next five to 10 years. Other recommendations include: • Building a new spray park at Lions Park in the next six to 10 years. • Initiating business case planning in the next six to 10 years for expanded indoor aquatic capacity at Hyde Creek Recreation Centre with an “outdoor aquatic experi-

ence.” • Initiating business case planning in the next 11 to 20 years for additional indoor pool capacity with an outdoor pool experience on the south side of the city. The recommendations come as the city’s outdoor pools near the end of their

life span and cost increasing amounts of money to maintain. Centennial, for example, was built in 1958 and needs improvements of up to $350,000 in the next three years, the study says.  CONT. ON PAGE 7, see POOLS.

PoCo resident Charlene Black is upset about planned cuts to staff and hours of operation at the city’s Hyde Creek Recreation Centre.

City eyes Hyde Creek in effort to cut costs John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Proposed service and staffing cuts at the Hyde Creek Recreation Centre has at least one Port Coquitlam family questioning how those changes could impact safety at the facility. The city’s 2013 budget, which has yet to be approved by council, calls for a reduction in hours on Sunday evenings, and a move to reduce staffing levels by 15 hours per week in the centre’s weight room. If those measures are approved, the centre

would close at 6 p.m. on Sundays, as opposed to the current closing time of 9 p.m. The changes to the weight room would see staffing levels cut between 8 and 10 a.m., and between 9 and 10 p.m. on weekdays. “The people are important in [the weight room], because they control who comes in without a wrist band, and they can help if someone gets hurt,” said PoCo resident Charlene Black. “And there are times when items do get taken from the lockers and cubbyholes.”  CONTINUED ON PAGE 7, see RECREATION CENTRE.

Coquitlam plans to borrow $18M for projects John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com Coquitlam council began the process Monday of entering into a long-term borrowing agreement worth close to $18 million in order to finance a series of infrastructure projects in the city’s northeast.

The total project value is $21.9 million and includes road widening projects, safety improvements, reservoir upgrades and pump stations in the areas near Coast Meridian Road, David Avenue and Cedar Drive. Additional work is also planned in the City Centre area, and if the borrowing is approved, those projects will be slated for completion by 2014. Of the $21.9 million being sought from

City limits sports signs John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com A new set of guidelines spelling out where signs can go, their size, and how long they can be posted was introduced by Coquitlam council Monday night. The rules were drafted with sports associations in mind, and those groups helped draft the policy. The six locations include: • North Road: east side, north of Cameron Street • Lougheed Highway and Brunette Avenue: south side along the eastbound boulevard • Mariner Way and Austin Avenue on the east side: south of the entrance to Riverview Forest Park. • Lougheed Highway, Dewdney Trunk Road and the west side of Sharpe Street: southbound, on the grass

space near the pedestrian overpass • Johnson Street and Guildford Way: on the southwest corner • Shaughnessy Street and David Avenue: on the northeast corner Other stipulations include a limit on the size of signs (four feet by eight feet) and the timelines associated with how long they’re up: signs can go up five weeks in advance of a registration date and must be taken down within a week after that date has passed. The longest a sign can be posted for is six weeks, and must include contact information for the associated group. “My issue has never been the proliferation of signs, it’s the proliferation of different sized signs in different places,” Mayor Richard Stewart said Monday. “The challenge, I think, is

trying to maintain a little bit of order if it’s possible.” Coun. Craig Hodge, who chairs the city’s sport council, said the group acknowledged the issue has been problematic. “They recognize that there is an issue in the community and they wanted to be a part of the solution … I think it’s a good compromise,” he said Monday. Groups that don’t fall in line with the bylaw will be subject to fines if the signs aren’t removed “within a reasonable amount of time,” according to a staff report. A $25 impound fee could also be issued. While the guidelines pertain to sports groups, church groups, music businesses and schools are encouraged to use the 10 poster board locations at city-owned facilities like libraries and rec centres.

the Municipal Finance Authority, $17.9 million will be borrowed and repaid with future development cost charge (DCC) collections, while the remaining $4 million will be funded by city sources, including DCCs already collected for this purpose. None of the money will come from city tax dollars, and the projects are necessary to begin development in the affected areas, the city says. The same process was used in late 2009 and early 2010, when the city borrowed about $4 million for the widening of Coast Meridian Road.

“It doesn’t come out of taxpayers’ dollars at all, so this is a win-win,” said Mayor Richard Stewart. “And from the developers’ perspective, actually, it’s considered a win as well because they get those services installed right now.” Residents could trigger a referendum process that could block the borrowing. If 10 per cent of those on the 2011 voters list — or roughly 8,200 residents — register opposition, a referendum would ensue. The deadline for public comment on the proposed borrowing is April 15.

Recreation centre may close early on Sundays Black said she and the three other members of her family are at the facility five times per week, and typically use the weight room and cardio machines. She said the proposed cuts fly in the face of municipal efforts to promote active lifestyles, and said the pay of city council members should be chopped instead. “Are the councillors willing to take a pay freeze so that everybody else can have something? That’s always a question I have, but it never gets answered,” she said. According to the city’s preliminary budget documents, the reduction in hours on Sundays represents an opportunity to save $35,000 annually. That translates into a savings of $1.31 per single-family household, and represents the highest savings opportunity put forward by the city’s parks are recreation staff. The reduction in staffing in the weight room could save the city $16,000, or 60 cents

per single-family household. City spokesperson Pardeep Purewal told The NOW the cuts are being proposed, “in order to both balance the budget and meet community

needs.” “None of the proposed service level changes have been implemented,” she said in an e-mail. “More specifically, supervision of the weight

room on Sunday evenings has remained the same.” The city’s draft 2013 budget includes a municipal tax increase of $50.65 (2.63 per cent) and an infrastructure

Beyond that point, replacement of the pool will be necessary, at an estimated cost of $2.3 million. The pool costs about $69,000 a year to operate. Its primary user is the Marlins Swim Club, but it doesn’t meet the requirements to host sanctioned swim meets. In light of its aging outdoor pools, the city is asking residents for their opinion “on recommendations to close some services and expand others,” according to the press release. An online survey posted at www.portcoquitlam. ca/poolstudy from Feb. 19 to March 5 is seeking feedback to the draft Outdoor Aquatic Infrastructure and Services Review, commissioned last year to address the future of the city’s aging outdoor pool facilities. A public open house is also planned for March 5 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Gathering Place, 2253 Leigh Square Pl. Council endorsed the study Monday night to enable its authors, Professional Environmental Recreation Consultants, to collect public feedback. However, the study will not be finalized and council will not vote on its recommendations until the public consultation has concluded.

Bill’s death lets freedom reign

L

ast week, the federal Conservative government moved in a direction that Canadians have not been used to seeing them go: backwards. The government announced that it was going to let its much-reviled Bill C-30 — commonly known as the Internet surveillance bill — die. Had it passed, the bill would have forced Internet service providers to turn over information to police and allow them to snoop on electronic communications without bothering with the niceties of obtaining warrants. The bill prompted outrage — and rightly so — from federal and provincial privacy commissioners, from civil liberties advocates, and from a burgeoning group of online activists. It’s hard to accept Justice Minister Rob Nicholson’s claim that government decided to change course because it was listening to the criticisms Canadians voiced about the bill. Other recent decisions by the Conservatives have prompted equal or greater public vitriol, but in every one of those cases, the government has stuck to its guns. It’s more likely that Nicholson, et al., finally foresaw what even casual Charter nerds were screaming: that this law would be struck down at its first court challenge, and at every challenge thereafter. If public opposition really did make the difference in this rare instance, big kudos are owed to the Internet activists and privacy advocates who kept the heat on the government by keeping the issue front and centre. They might have saved us from a fundamental change in the relationship between our government and the people it serves — one in which privacy would have been replaced with snooping.

tions attached to the Northern Gateway pipeline, and the environmental movement will have a harder time marshalling widespread opposition to it. Nevertheless, there will be opposition. Some local mayors — notably Burnaby’s Derek Corrigan and Vancouver’s Gregor Robertson — are adamantly against it, as are some First Nations (who seem to have a de facto veto over industrial development anyways, courtesy of certain court rulings). And it will be fascinating to see how the NDP, should it win the election this May, handles this issue. The party was quick to denounce the Northern Gateway pipeline, which was taking a position that reflected a majority of public opinion. But the Kinder Morgan project is a more sensitive one for the party, since its activist members no doubt oppose the project but to last more than one term in government it must ensure it’s not seen as anti-business. The New Democrats also have to be wary of joining with the anti-fracking crowd, since any moratorium on the controversial practice will have a dramatic and negative impact on government revenues (which could be used to satisfy at least part of the long wish list its constituents likely have). So it’s easy to say “no” all the time to all kinds of controversial developments. But whichever party wins the next election, it will find itself forced to say “yes” to a few of them. Protest rallies and demonstrations are easy to pull off. Governing without enough money coming in is not. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global B.C.

The federal government’s Last Post Fund is supposed to ensure that no veteran is denied a dignified funeral and burial because of their financial means. Yet it is underfunded and uses outdated eligibility criteria, depriving veterans and short-changing their families when their loved one passes away. The fund will pay up to only $3,600 to cover veterans’ funeral costs, which does not come close to covering the actual cost of a proper funeral.

Schoenborn seeks transfer to Manitoba hospital One of B.C.’s most notorious killers could be on his way out of the province. Child killer Allan Schoenborn requested a transfer to a psychiatric hospital in Selkirk, Man. at his annual B.C. Review Board at the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Coquitlam Friday. The board approved the request later that day. Schoenborn’s lawyer told the review board panel his client was requesting the transfer to Manitoba to be closer to his mother, who could help with his possible reintegration into the community. Neither his doctors nor the Crown at the hearing opposed the transfer request. Schoenborn, looking cleancut and dressed in jeans, also spoke briefly at the hearing and answered a few questions from the panel. He mentioned his family lives in Winnipeg and said the area is “the right place to be.” “There’s only select movement in the hospital,” he said. “It’s starting to become bothersome and I miss my mom.” During the roughly 25-minute hearing, Schoenborn also talked about his current relationship with his mother. “She was very kind in her visits, very attentive to me,” he said. “It’s a proper mom and son relationship. I respect mom. She loves me and I love her.” His case doctor, Marcel Hediger, also agreed with the transfer, suggesting Schoenborn faces “unique hurdles” in reintegration because of his notoriety. “In terms of having close contact with family, there would be benefit for Mr. Schoenborn,” he said, noting his patient doesn’t have any family in B.C. The panel also heard Schoenborn remains a risk to the community. It was agreed he wouldn’t be granted any new freedoms. Schoenborn, who killed his three children in 2008 in Merritt but was ultimately found not guilty of murder by reason of mental disorder, caused a stir in 2011 when he applied to the B.C Review Board for escorted access to get a coffee and go to a local pool. He eventually withdrew his application. He was also set to have two hearings in 2012 but cancelled both. However, Schoenborn’s path to a new province isn’t assured. Though Crown supports the request, it would still need to be reviewed by the Criminal Justice Branch, while the attorney generals in B.C. and Manitoba need to agree to the transfer. The family of Darcie Clarke, whose three children were killed by Schoenborn, is also reportedly asking the attorney

the request, but also suggested the family opposes Schoenborn’s transfer because

family members live near his mother. “On one side it doesn’t

t’s a patchwork of stories created via a patchwork of volunteers, all in the name of celebrating the centennial. Stitching Our History, a large-scale wall hanging celebrating Port Moody’s past and present, is nearing completion, although the final touches will entail some help from the public. Starting today (Wednesday, Feb. 20), the four-by-14-foot piece will be hung in the Galleria at Port Moody City Hall for three weeks, giving residents an opportunity to add some stitching to the nearly completed work. “You can put in one stitch or you can put in 100,” said Ann Kitching, who brought the idea to life about two years ago. “It’s very much a grass roots community project.

Basketball teams enter must-win week For a rare few, this week is where a potential B.C. berth takes shape. The senior basketball teams who’ve advanced to the Fraser Valleys do have one thing — another chance. However, for those on the wrong side of this week’s scores, that shot will fall just as flat. Both the boys and girls basketball Valley championships hit full steam — the girls began Monday, while the boys start tonight at various sites. HARDWOOD HOPES While all of the local senior boys teams are hitting the road for the rest of the season, the Terry Fox Ravens do have the benefit of the shortest drive. The No. 11 seed team in the Valleys plays No. 22 Seaquam tonight, 6:15 p.m. at Pitt Meadows Secondary (19438116B Ave.). Meanwhile, at Lord Tweedsmuir, the No. 10 Gleneagle Talons take on No. 23 Panorama Ridge. TREE TRIMMING With their playoff hopes fading away, the Coquitlam Express are angling to establish a winning pattern on which to build next year around. Coming into town for a pair of games are the Prince George Spruce Kings. Friday’s test, which begins at 6:30 p.m. with multicultural Chinese and Korean New Year celebrations, should have its share of fireworks. Game time is 7 p.m. The teams tangle again on Sunday at 2 p.m., both in the friendly confines of the Poirier Sports Centre. AN IMPERIAL MATTER The Coquitlam Metro-Ford Wolves have cup fever — starting with the Imperial Cup. The Vancouver Metro Soccer League premier club has drawn Rino’s Vancouver in the second round, with the winner advancing to the quarterfinals. The action begins at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Coquitlam Town Centre’s east pitch.

Grade 6 student answers different kind of bell Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com He admits to being nervous, but Coquitlam’s Connor Hollingshead dropped any worries about his skills — and alleviated some of his mother’s concerns — at last week’s Seattle-Tacoma Junior Golden Gloves boxing championships. Although he finished 1-1, losing the championship to a decision, the whole experience for the 11year-old was a big positive. “I was nervous, it was completely nerve wracking getting into the ring,” Connor said of his first sanctioned boxing match. “But once you get in and you start to box, the flow of it just settles down all the nerves.” He beat his first opponent in the 101-106 pound division by decision, after putting him in a standing eight-count. Against his second opponent, the Hollingshead camp felt that the Kwayhquitlum Middle School student had scored more than enough points to win, but the judges ruled otherwise. “I thought I did well, I know I scored some good hits… I was at first a bit angry and a little shocked. In the end you can’t always win, but you want to,” he noted. His mom was just pleased that Connor stepped out of the ring healthy and happy.

North league hoop survivors face Valley challenge

There’s no easy way around it — the road to the B.C.s is going to be a sprint that could see more than a few good teams go splat. The Gleneagle Talons saw just what kind of road awaits this week, after emerging from the Fraser Valley North senior boys basketball league playoffs as the second seed. The Talons were edged 59-46 by the Pitt Meadows Marauders on Saturday in the battle for the North’s top seed. And considering how tough the other parts of the Valley are rated this year, that No. 1-seed had extra value. “Our conference isn’t considered as strong as in

past years,” remarked Gleneagle coach Tony Scott, “so it means we’ve got a tough battle ahead of us.” The Talons trailed Pitt 31-14 at the half and managed to pull the deficit to eight at one point, but couldn’t make up the ground. “We just had a really bad first half and didn’t hit any of our makeable shots,” he noted. “This one I thought we were prepared for, but maybe the battle with [Terry] Fox the night before didn’t give us the jump we hoped it would.” In the semifinal, Gleneagle edged Terry Fox 62-54 to advance to the North final, while Port Moody’s Heritage Woods Kodiaks fell 76-59 to the Marauders.

MacLeod tweeted the following statement on Monday: “It was a play that is made many times throughout a hockey game. The result here was unfortunate but I am feeling much better.” He has since been released from hospital.

Blueliner gives Express a boost Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com

O

ften the biggest tests are those that come unannounced. For those keeping score, Ben Israel has answered all the personal pop quizzes with flying colours. The 18-year-old blueliner has overcome a serious injury and sudden relocation en route to becoming one of the key building blocks for the Coquitlam Express. And while the understaffed club continues to struggle, falling 5-2 on Saturday to the Nanaimo Clippers, the number of positive points over the past month include the addition of the Michigan native. “I was definitely a little surprised,” said Israel of the Jan. 10 trade, which saw him and winger Garrett Forster traded by Chilliwack. “I wouldn’t say I was disappointed but I was more excited about what could come.” That positive outlook — along with a larger role with the rebuilding Express — has made Israel a pleasant addition at the Poirier ice palace. The five-foot-10 defenceman has been given the green light by Coquitlam coaches to push the envelope, resulting in six goals over 13 games. He’s also thrown a handful of jarring bodychecks that have caught opponents by surprise. The Bloomfield Hills, Mich. native came to the B.C. Hockey League almost on a lark, after an injury suffered last May put him on the bubble for a roster spot in the U.S. Hockey League. A second round draft pick by the Michigan Warriors, Israel was still sidelined by a cut Achilles tendon when camps started up. Unable to push for a position, he instead followed a loose lead to Chilliwack last

summer, and proceeded to impress Chiefs’ coach and general manager Harvey Smyl. “I couldn’t walk during the (USHL) camp. I had a random contact that knew Harvey and I went out there — I couldn’t make it through the whole practice but I battled through it and made the team.” With the Chiefs, Israel took to his role as a shutdown blueliner with second powerplay duties. At the trade deadline, Chilliwack moved him, Forester and future considerations for sniper Philip Zielonka. The Express, falling outside of a top-four playoff berth, had an eye on next year. Both Israel and Forester are big pieces to next year’s roster, Express coach and general manager Jon Calvano said. “We wanted quality players back and guys who we would keep around next year,” said Calvano. “We looked at (Israel’s) upside, good skating ability, he’s tough and a charismatic guy out there, with a personality.” A product of the famous Honeybaked minor system, Israel said he has modelled his game in the style of his favourite player, Nicklas Lidstrom. “I like to throw my body around, too… I personally like scoring more because offensively you need to score to win the game. You’re only going to win by putting up the points on the board but there’s no doubt I love throwing my body around,” he noted. For Calvano, the intensity that Israel brings to a game — whether in his rambunctious physical play or smart puck sense — has made a lot of people sit up and take notice. “I describe him as a bit like P.K. Subban — Ben’s flamboyant, he’s high risk, he plays a bit of pond hockey style but he’s got offensive skills and [he’s] a real good character guy and a lot of fun to have

around,” said Calvano. The Express host the Prince George Spruce Kings for a pair of games this weekend, starting Friday, 7 p.m. The two teams tangle again on Sunday, 2 p.m. Both games are at the Poirier Sports Centre.

Riverside, Best, Heritage Woods and Carney all advanced to this week’s Fraser Valley championships.

Rapids, Talons aim for provincial berths

It’s the kind of start that they wanted. As of today, only one team is sitting pretty. The Riverside Rapids and Gleneagle Talons launched the senior girls Fraser Valley basketball championships on Monday with victories, with No. 2 seed Riverside clobbering Sardis 8739, while No. 7 Gleneagle topped Lord Tweedsmuir 51-33. That put the two district rivals into yesterday’s quarterfinal showdown (past The NOW’s deadline), with the winner advancing into Friday’s semifinal and claiming one of the Valley’s four automatic B.C. berths. The loser, meanwhile, will be in the mix for one of four other potential wildcard berths. Riverside got 20 points and six rebounds from Dani Antignani in its win over Sardis. Contributing with 16 points and three steals was Fiona Beales, while Vanessa Gee chipped in 14 points. Posting a team-high eight rebounds was Megan Cornish. The Talons, meanwhile, defeated Tweedsmuir behind the Yee sister combination that accounted for 33 points. Brittani Yee scored a game-high 18, while sister Breanna added 15. In other opening round play, No. 8 seeded Yale tipped past No. 9 Terry Fox 69-44, and No. 5 W.J. Mouat hammered No. 12 Centennial. Both Fox and Centennial faced must-win situations yesterday against North Surrey and Panorama Ridge, respectively.

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to #63 create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immunosuppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection. Naturopathic Doctor summarized his experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage.

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