Wilson wins NDP contest Former Olympian defeats front-runner Joe Keithley for nomination Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com

Minutes before the winner of the Coquitlam-Burke Mountain NDP nomination was announced, contender Chris Wilson was anxiously pacing the gym at Nestor Elementary. Just a few moments later at 4:30 p.m., he breathed a huge sigh of relief. The former Olympic wrestler and current KidSport Tri-Cities chair and Operation Red Nose coordinator had secured the nomination Sunday as the NDP candidate in the upcoming election. He narrowly defeated high-profile candidate and rocker Joe Keithley in a four-way race that also included former Coquitlam councillor Barrie Lynch and Vincent Wu. “I totally love Coquitlam,” an emotional Wilson said following his victory. “To be in a position to represent this community is phenomenal.” He credited Keithley for running a great campaign, but suggested support

from other local NDP politicians like MP Fin Donnelly and Coquitlam Coun. Selina Robinson helped seal the victory. “I think what helped me was my involvement in the community,” Wilson said. The local constituency did not release the final tally of votes to the media, but it was noted membership grew in the riding to 600 from 40 before the race. Keithley said he was disappointed with the result, but added he believes Wilson is a good candidate to beat current Liberal MLA Doug Horne. The rocker-turned-political-hopeful pinned Wilson’s success on being in the community for years. Keithley lives in Burnaby, but suggested he would have moved to the riding had he won a seat in the legislature. He said he’s not sure what his political future will hold, but hinted he isn’t finished with politics. Wilson said his goal now is to put together a campaign team, set up office space and round up volunteers for the campaign.

As for his competition, the newly minted candidate said he has a lot of respect for Horne but not his party, and is looking forward to a fair and honest campaign. In the meantime, Horne called Wilson a “very nice fellow” and said he believes the campaign will be about the issues and each party’s vision going forward. The MLA said his focus in the campaign will be on his own record in the last four years and his accomplishments, like the ground breaking on the Evergreen Line. With 10 weeks left before voters head to the polls, the NDP has all four TriCities candidates in place, including MLAs Mike Farnworth and Joe Trasolini for Port Coquitlam and Port MoodyCoquitlam, respectively, and Selina Robinson replacing retiring MLA Diane Thorne in Coquitlam-Maillardville. The Liberals have two of their four candidates in place, including Horne in Coquitlam-Burke Mountain and Coquitlam Coun. Linda Reimer in Port Moody-Coquitlam.

Coquitlam River is healthy, city says Will waterway be removed from Top 10 Most Endangered Rivers in B.C. list this year? John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

Y

ear over year, the reports painted a grim portrait of the Coquitlam River — excess sedimentation and urbanization were said to be destroying the local waterway. However, a new report illustrates an entirely different scenario, one of vitality and recovery. Coquitlam council in committee was given the results of the year-long study examining the health of the river on Monday, and virtually every test conducted over that period suggests the river is in a healthy state. “I was tremendously pleased about the report, especially on behalf of all the people who have done so much work over the past several years — long before I got on council — to make this sort of report happen,” said Coun. Terry O’Neill, chair of the Coquitlam River aggregate committee. The city began testing last August at seven different points along the river, in undeveloped, residential, commercial and industrial areas. The testing zone ranged from the upper reaches near the BC Hydro dam,

The City of Coquitlam says tests reveal the Coquitlam River is healthy. down to the mouth of the river where it meets with the Fraser River. City staff used equipment to measure dissolved oxygen and pH levels in the water, while also examining other factors like temperature, turbidity and fecal coliform and chlorophyll levels. The research also looked for the presence of five types of metal: cadmium,

copper, iron, lead and zinc. After each finding was complete, those areas were then given a colour classification — green, yellow or red — noting areas of concern. Only one test sample — located at the riverbend site near the PoCo rail yard — came back with a red level rating for copper levels. The report notes

the sampling was an anomaly, given that four other samples from the same site yielded positive results. “If that continues, some sort of investigation will have to be done,” O’Neill said. “But nobody knows quite what to do yet because this was so anomalous.” The findings fly in the face of consistent annual reports from the Outdoor Recreation Council of B.C. (ORC), which has frequently listed the Coquitlam River on its Top 10 Most Endangered Rivers in B.C. list since the list’s inception in 1993. “Our goal is to always see a river drop off the list for the right reasons,” said Mark Angelo, an ORC advisory board member and chair of the B.C. Rivers Institute. “I think by highlighting the Coquitlam River in recent years, it’s kept the spotlight on the river. It’s highlighted issues that had to be addressed. I think we recognize too, there has been some progress over the years.” Angelo noted the nomination period for this year’s version of the 2013 Most Endangered Rivers List is approaching on March 18, and it’s too early to speculate whether the Coquitlam River will once again be on the list.

Scientists, MP want action on salmon Cohen Commission listed 75 recommendations to help sockeye, but none implemented John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com It’s believed to be a blueprint that will help resurrect the decimated Fraser River sockeye salmon stocks, but four months after the release of the Cohen Commission’s final report, no tangible changes have been made. Those are the feelings of people in both the scientific community and members of the official Opposition, who are calling on the federal Conservatives to take immediate action on the 75 recommendations coming out of the report issued last October. Few, if any, of the recommendations have been implemented to date, and a series of deadlines tied to Justice Bruce Cohen’s recommendations have already passed without action being taken. “No one has heard [anything] from government on the report,” said Craig Orr,

We’ve had lots of concerns over what we believe to be biased government science on aquaculture impacts.” According to Orr, the deadlines for three key recommendations in the report have come and gone. Close to a half dozen other deadlines are approaching at the end of this month. One of the deadlines already missed involves a recommendation to hire a senior Fisheries and Oceans Canada staffer to oversee the implementation of the Wild Salmon Policy, a wide-ranging salmon management and conservation document crafted in 2005. “That’s the first deadline that was missed that we’re very concerned about,” Orr said. Orr was one of more than 100 witnesses to testify before

the commission, which sat for 18 months and cost about $26 million. The final report was issued on Oct. 31, 2012 and pointed to a number of factors behind the sockeye collapse: changing water temperatures, competition for food out at sea, and the prevalence of pathogens in certain fish. The report also suggested farmed salmon had transferred diseases to wild fish throughout B.C.’s central coast. The NOW attempted to contact Port Moody-WestwoodPort Coquitlam MP James Moore for comment last week. Moore’s press secretary referred The NOW to the office of Keith Ashfield, the minister of Fisheries and Oceans. Ultimately, Fisheries and Oceans Canada spokesperson Frank Stanek responded in an e-mail that the federal government is still examining the findings from the Cohen Commission. He

did not provide timelines as to when any of the recommendations would be implemented. “The Government of Canada has long recognized the importance of protecting sockeye salmon in the Fraser River,” Stanek said. “This is why the Cohen Commission of Inquiry into the Decline of Sockeye Salmon in the Fraser River was called.” In an interview last week, New Westminster-Coquitlam MP Fin Donnelly blasted the government over the delay, accusing the Conservatives of “just going through the motions.” “To come back and not have any answers, and to say they’re still looking into it after four months is unacceptable,” Donnelly said. “When you have that kind of an investment, $26 million, and numerous reports over a number of years, there should be a political commitment to enact those recommendations immediately. They haven’t.”

Concerns raised over Fire started in chimney mentally ill inmates Jeremy Deutsch

jdeutsch@thenownews.com

Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com Once again, the union representing jail guards at the North Fraser Pretrial Centre in PoCo is sounding the alarm over conditions in the facility, after another inmate was injured in an apparent suicide attempt last week. Dean Purdy, chair of corrections and sheriff services for the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, suggested the closure of mental health institutions in the province has led to a spillover in the jail, adding mentally disordered offender units are always overflowing. “It’s a concern for us, because it’s just another population that’s inside the jail that we have to manage,” Purdy told The NOW. Last Friday, an inmate jumped from the third floor of a living unit that houses inmates with mental illness. The media has identified the inmate as Jerome Bonneric, the man alleged to be behind a bizarre attack in Vancouver in January. The 33-year-old was charged with 12 counts, including assault, on a number of residents at a Barclay Street apartment in on Jan. 31. Coquitlam Mounties confirmed they are investigating an incident at the jail that resulted in injuries to an inmate, but foul play isn’t suspected. Purdy noted management at the jail has committed to fixing the issue with the physical layout of the building to prevent a similar incident, but the problems of violence haven’t gone away. He said there were 45 assaults on correctional officers in the jail in 2012, with that trend continuing in 2013. A BC Corrections spokes-

person released a statement regarding the incident last Friday. “I can confirm that on Mar. 1, an inmate was taken to hospital for treatment after suffering serious injuries at the North Fraser Pretrial Correctional Centre,” the statement said. “Because of privacy considerations, I am unable to provide further details. Any serious injury that occurs at any of our centres is a great concern, and we are taking this incident very seriously. BC Corrections is conducting a Critical Incident Review to examine the circumstances of this incident. In addition, local RCMP are also investigating.” Bonneric’s lawyer Bob Bellows told The Vancouver Sun he hopes changes are made to the way mentally ill inmates are managed within B.C. institutions. “There are so many issues in terms of the care of mentally ill inmates that someone has to get serious about their treatment in the prisons,” he said. “Perhaps this case is the one to bring home what happens with mentally ill people in the prisons.” Bellows said both himself and the French consul-general had been in communication with North Fraser about Bonneric’s mental health issues before his suicide attempt. This is not the first case of inmate injuries at the jail. Two inmates died in the facility last year. Roland Joseph Bourque died on April 2, 2012 at the jail. The BC Coroners Service has called an inquest into the death of the 69-year-old to find out exactly how he died. There were reports at the time that Bourque’s death was a possible suicide. A date for the inquest has

not been set. 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. — with files from The Vancouver Sun

A fire that started in the chimney of a Coquitlam home Sunday night is not considered suspicious, according to fire department officials. Coquitlam Fire & Rescue crews were called to the home in the 1400 block of Lansdowne Drive just before 8 p.m. By the time firefighters arrived, the blaze had made its way into the wall. “It was a difficult one because it was up inside the wall cavity,” said Coquitlam fire chief Tony Delmonico. He noted crews had to access the fire from inside one of the bedroom’s walls.

The fire chief estimated damage to the home to be in the $60,000 range. Delmonico said investigators believe the fire is related to a wood-burning fireplace, and isn’t considered suspicious. The homeowner was

electronics. “Our investigators conducted extensive neighbourhood inquiries, but were not able to come up with any new information,” said RCMP Cpl.

It’s been an expensive lesson for hundreds of Tri-Cities motorists who continue to use their cellphones while driving. During a distracted driving enforcement blitz last month, Coquitlam Mounties handed out 552 tickets related to using an electronic device. The force handed out 314 tickets during a similar campaign in February 2012. The fine for being busted using a device like a cellphone

or audio player is $167. “I see many drivers are not getting the message,” said RCMP Traffic Services Sgt. Dave Fee in a statement. “Nearly twice as many drivers this year than last received a ticket under the Motor Vehicle Act for using an electronic device.” Police note the research indicates cellphone users are three to four times more likely to be involved in a crash,

while the rate is 20 times higher for texting drivers. “I hope those drivers learned their lesson,” Fee said. “If you are driving distracted, you are a danger to yourself and other road users.” Though the distracted driving campaign ended last week, Coquitlam RCMP warned officers would continue to watch for distracted drivers. twitter.com/ jercoquitlamnow

Search team hopeful gear will arrive soon Jeremy Deutsch jdeutsch@thenownews.com They’ve seen it, they know it exists, but members of Coquitlam Search and Rescue can’t quite lay hands on it. For months, the search team has been waiting for a new rope and harness kit for its Helicopter External Transportation System (HETS) so it can perform helicopter rescues. It was supposed to arrive in January, but the month passed with no kit. February has come and gone, and still no kit. The problem is the HETS equipment needs to be certified by Transport Canada. “It’s painfully slow dealing with that kind of bureaucracy,” said Coquitlam SAR search manager Al Hurley. But there could be some long-awaited good news for the team. Thanks to a little arm-twisting from the

local MP, Transport Canada bumped the inspection to second in line. Hurley is now hopeful the kit will be in the hands of the search team this week. And if it arrives, it won’t be a moment too soon as spring approaches. Hurley explained the equipment is not only important for those in need of rescue, but also the safety of the team. “When we put members into rugged terrain with no chance of fast rescue, it compromises our safety protocols,” he said. It will still take a few weeks for the team to get retrained on the equipment before the new kit is put into service. The search crew handles about five helicopter rope rescues a year. The team’s HETS was shelved last fall after a piece of rescue equipment was decertified by Transport Canada. The team was trained and ready to go by September and had a

temporary rope and harness kit ready for action up until it got word from the federal agency to pull the plug. A similar situation occurred last year when the North Shore Search and Rescue team went public about their wait for a rope rescue kit. The team’s kit received certification within a few days. Port Moody-Westwood-Port Coquitlam MP James Moore, whose office placed a call to the ministry last week to get the certification moving, said bureaucracy should never stand in the way of public safety, and suggested any delay is “unacceptable.” “In the future, Transport Canada has to find a way to work with search and rescue organizations ahead of any decisions on equipment that is approved,” Moore said. “There should never be any doubt about public safety.” Hurley said the organization never felt the old equipment was unsafe.

Worst invention of all time?

I am currently on maternity leave with my two kids and am at my wit’s end. This is not because of my newborn crying, or the rain, or my toddler’s tantrums, but rather because I am constantly surrounded by the sound of a leaf blower. It’s March, not even the fall season, yet they appear every single weekday. Currently I hear two, which is much better than when I often hear at least To The five. One is currently pushing puddles, and the other is going from door to door pushing dirt and other particulate matter from one area to another. It’s not only the hellish sound, but the emissions, which are known to be far more polluting than cars from the 80s. Even with all my windows closed, the smell of gas seeps into

my home and is inhaled by my children. When I step outside, it is obviously much stronger, only in addition there are mold, dust and other allergen particulates floating around. I have video footage of five leaf blowers going full steam down my back lane in army formation. They perhaps had five leaves each to move. In between looking after my family, I am slowly putting together some facts, Editor footage and information to take to my city council in hopes we can explore a ban on what I believe to be the worst invention of all time. Otherwise, I am prepared to voluntarily rake the entire city if that’s what it takes. Jane Thomsing Port Coquitlam

Checking up on the wrong people

K

nock, knock. Who’s there? It’s the federal government. Unfortunately, that line has stuck a number of people as less than funny, after the feds sent workers to the homes of EI claimants to check on them. Ottawa claims the visits are needed to protect Canada’s EI program from fraud, although it’s hard to see how a house visit could accomplish that. Most job coaches will say that sitting at home isn’t the best way of finding work. The program smacks of intimidation, and does little that couldn’t be accomplished by picking up the phone. It also focuses energy in entirely the wrong place. Most people who are unemployed would prefer to be working. Fact is, the economic recovery has been painfully slow over the past several years. Despite the fact EI is an insurance program that workers pay into, the federal government has in recent years made it more difficult to qualify for benefits and cut the length of time benefits are received. None of which has done anything to help those who find themselves out of work through no fault of their own. Contrast this with the kid glove treatment recently afforded to Conservative senators who have apparently been claiming false residences in order to collect a special housing allowance at taxpayers’ expense. Recently Mike Duffy said he’d repay tens of thousands of dollars in housing allowance after falsely claiming a cottage in PEI was his principal residence. Seems a few folks in the Red Chamber could benefit from a government-sponsored house call. — Guest editorial from the North Shore News

Many voters will want to find a way to keep an NDP government honest and in check, and if the B.C. Liberals don’t look like a valid way to do that, they’ll go looking for another vehicle to register their view. If that’s the case, traditional election necessities for political parties such as funding and organizational ability go out the window. In 1991, some B.C. Liberal candidates were elected even though they didn’t actually campaign. Fred Gingell won in Delta South and filed election expenses totalling less than $100, while Doug Symons won in Richmond despite the lack of any semblance of a campaign (he went to bed on election night without even knowing he had won). As the 1991 campaign demonstrated, the fall of a ruling dynasty can be swift and dramatic, with results unimagined a relatively short time before the campaign began. Of course, there’s still a chance the B.C. Liberals can pull themselves together and regain some lost ground with the public, to the point of winning enough seats to form a viable Opposition. In fact, that’s the best scenario the ruling party can hope for right now. But the worst case scenario would be suffering the same fate that befell the B.C. Liberals’ political predecessor back in 1991. And, given the government’s penchant for creating scandals and self-inflicted wounds, that scenario cannot be easily dismissed.

Paul Kershaw, a policy professor at UBC, says Generations X and Y can improve conditions for Lower Mainland residents being pinched by high housing and living costs if they show up to vote in the provincial election this May — especially in close ridings like Coquitlam-Maillardville and Port Moody-Coquitlam. vote in Canada and abroad. Looking ahead, B.C. hosts Canada’s next major election on May 14. Data show young people have a particular opportunity to make their vote count in the suburbs of Vancouver, where recent elections witnessed tight races. Consider Maple Ridge-

Mission, where 68 votes made the difference between the provincial Liberals and NDP in the last campaign. So did 274 votes in Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows. The margin of victory in Burnaby Deer Lake was 512 votes. It was 548 votes in Burnaby North, and 698 in Burnaby Lougheed.

The same goes for Coquitlam-Maillardville, where 668 ballots determined winner and loser. And this year’s race is also bound to be close in Port Moody-Coquitlam, where the NDP won the recent byelection, swinging the riding from a retiring Liberal cabinet minister who had held it for years. Close election results reveal that adding just a few hundred votes to the tens of thousands who cast a ballot can make the difference between who wins and loses an election. Candidates are especially primed to listen carefully to their constituents in such situations, and may even stray from their party leader’s script if local residents press the matter. The historically tight electoral races in these suburbs become especially interesting because of their demographics. They are now home to many under 45 who have been pushed out of Vancouver by its especially high housing prices. This means that young people have numbers on their side in what we can anticipate will be tight election races in

Burnaby, the Tri-Cities and Maple Ridge. If just a few hundred more of them go to the ballot box, they have every chance of deciding the result. That’s power. So Generations X and Y can count on their voices being heard if they get informed and show up. Never before have the suburbs had such a chance to influence whether B.C. really becomes the best place on Earth — at least from the perspective of younger generations starting their training, careers and families. But if young people avoid the ballot box on May 14, British Columbia, and especially Metro Vancouver, will likely remain the least affordable place on the continent for younger generations.

Food and fun at Imagine gala SHARE fundraiser features the Underground Circus John Kurucz jkurucz@thenownews.com

T

he SHARE Family & Community Services Society’s Imagine gala happens this Saturday (March 9) at Coquitlam’s Red Robinson Show Theatre. The event is the non-profit’s signature fundraiser of the year, and organizers hope to exceed $100,000. “Obviously, we’d love to blow that out of the water, but the goal is to raise $100,000,” said Kate Lawrence, the society’s director of development. “The money we raise goes towards general support for SHARE as a whole, and it supports all of our programming: everything from the food bank to counselling services, to legal advocacy and all the other different things we do on a daily basis.” On tap for this year’s event, which kicks off at 6:30 p.m., is a repeat appearance of the Underground Circus, while Global TV personalities John Daly and Kaitlyn Herbst will serve as guest hosts. A cast of celebrity judges will decide on their favourite sweet and savoury tastes from local restaurateurs. The savoury dishes include tuna tataki and pearls from the Backstage Grille @ Boulevard Casino, butter chicken sliders from Joey’s Coquitlam, habañero meatloaf from Sammy J’s Grill and Bar, and pulled pork and corn bread from Wilbur and Sabastian’s Smokehouse and Bistro. On the sweet side of things, the Christine Catering Company will be offering up gateau au chocolate café, Luscious Creations will put its trio of cake truffles to the test, Mr. Mike’s Steakhouse & Bar will unveil its Dreamy Bailey’s Cheesecake, and White Spot will whip up its Bumbleberry Cheesecake. “This event is unique in the sense that you’re out and about, moving throughout the room and getting to know other people in our community,” Lawrence said. “It’s all about getting to know your neighbour and this is the perfect place to do that. We want you to know the people who are supporting us.” Topping the list of auction items is a guitar autographed by renowned blues legends Buddy Guy and Jonny Lang, a day’s worth of recording time at Port Coquitlam’s Vogville Studios, an eight-person prize pack to go shooting at the Port Coquitlam Hunting and Fishing Club, a two-night stay at a Vancouver Island bed and breakfast, and a closed-door wine tasting opportunity. Raffle prizes include two tickets to anywhere in the world that WestJet flies, a vacation package to the Predator Ridge golf course and resort and a $500 Vancity My Treat Visa gift card. SHARE staffers will also unveil a video project called I Am Share, an interactive exercise that explains to the community what the society represents, and whom it serves. “We are in the Tri-Cities community, we work for the community and we work together to build partnerships,” Lawrence said. “Everything we do is about the people we serve and we can’t do what we do without the community’s help. This video really does represent the Tri-Cities community.” Tickets for Imagine cost $75 and can be purchased online at imagine.sharesociety.ca or by phone at 604-540-9161.

Women in Business

Breaking through the glass ceiling is possible A

s the old saying goes,“A woman’s work is never done.” Unfortunately, many women find this adage still rings true, particularly in regard to the workplace. According to the AFL-CIO, the average 25-year-old woman who works fulltime, year-round until she retires at age 65 will earn $523,000 less than the average working man.The U.S. Department of Labor says that women earn roughly 20 per cent less than men.Though women have made large advances toward economic equality, a disparity in pay between men and women still exists. As if unequal working wages weren’t enough, many women face barriers in finding jobs and advancing their careers.The term “glass ceiling” refers to the unseen, yet unbreachable barrier that keeps minorities and women from rising to the upper rungs of the corporate ladder, regardless of their qualifications or achievements. Many women feel they have gone as far as they can with their employer, thanks to a lack of options at the supervisory level, or an unwillingness of higher-ups to consider them for advancement. As difficult as it can be for women to advance, there are ways to break through.

In 2009, a report by Bloomberg News discovered that many women in top CEO positions earned substantially more than their male counterparts. Female CEOs of Yahoo!, Pepsi and Kraft earn salaries as high as $45 million. Despite progress, there are still many women earning less and getting left behind. There are strategies women can employ to change this. • Be more aggressive in negotiations. When negotiating salary, don’t be shy. Be aggressive when pursuing a salary that is commensurate with your experience. • Get involved. Network with like-minded women who have already paved their own way in the business sector.Women working in predominantly male fields can develop networking opportunities that are enjoyable to both men and women. • Find a mentor. Networking remains one of the key ways to advance in the business world. Relying on the experience of a mentor can help you with your career and the pressures that come with it. Seek mentors whose accomplishments you admire and who are willing to offer advice and encouragement. METROCREATIVE

A special version of the City of Port Coquitlam’s annual Volunteer Recognition Awards and Tribute this year will honour today’s volunteers as well as those who helped build the community over the past century. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2013 awards, whose theme, Legends of Port Coquitlam, recognizes the important role volunteers have played since the city was incorporated in 1913. “Our community was built on volunteers. This is an opportunity to recognize the people who make Port Coquitlam such a wonderful place to live,” Mayor Greg Moore said in a press release. “When we think of people who have affected our lives, often they’re a volunteer like a coach or someone who works with a community program. It’s important to make sure these people are recognized for providing a better quality of life for all of us.” Nominations will be accepted until March 17 in seven categories: Arts, Heritage & Cultural Awareness; Caring & Safety; Environmental Protection & Enhancement; Sports & Recreation; Youth Programs; U21 (youth under age 21); and Lifetime Volunteer. Fortis BC has again stepped forward to sponsor the awards and the Volunteer Recognition Awards and Tribute evening, a gala event featuring entertainment, refreshments and the awards presentation. As part of the city’s centennial celebrations, the 86 past award recipients will be invited to this year’s event, set for April 23 at the Port Coquitlam Recreation Complex. Nominees can be any age and do not have to live in PoCo. They cannot have previously received a Volunteer Recognition Award from the city, and must meet at least one of these criteria: • their unpaid volunteer contributions provide extraordinary help or care to families or groups in PoCo, • they continually commit their time, talent and energy, without pay, to improve the quality of life in PoCo, or • they have been voluntarily involved in a program or project that has had a lasting benefit for PoCo and its residents. All nominees will receive a commemorative pin and certificate, along with an invitation to the tribute. Award recipients will receive a personalized etched glass trophy and will have their names added to the volunteer “Honour Roll” displayed at City Hall since the awards were created in 1997. Nomination forms are available online at www. portcoquitlam.ca/volunteer, as well as at City Hall (2580 Shaughnessy St.), Port

Playground safety tips for parents, guardians From 2001 to 2008, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) investigated 40 deaths that were believed to be linked to playground equipment. The average victim’s age was six years old. Of the fatalities, 68 per cent were the result of hanging or asphyxiation.

Children are encouraged to play outdoors to exert physical effort and promote health. Few things are more exciting to young children than the opportunity to swing and scale playground obstacles. But what if the outdoor

play equipment poses significant safety risks? Playground injuries have become a considerable concern for parents and caregivers across the country. According to the organization Safe Kids

U.S.A., it is estimated nearly 220,000 children ages 14 and under were treated in emergency rooms for injuries associated with playground equipment in 2009, the most recent year for which statistics are available.

No one wants to prevent children from having fun, but it is essential to child safety that playgrounds be well-maintained to ensure playtime does not end in injury. Improperly maintained equipment coupled with ineffective shock-absorbing surface material can increase a child’s risk of injury. The CPSC says the equipment associated with the most injuries include climbers (monkey bars), swings,

slides and overhead ladders. Fractures remain the most common playground injury, followed by contusions and abrasions. To keep children safe, there are certain precautions that should be taken whenever children are allowed to use playground equipment. It is up to adults, including parents and guardians, to ensure that play areas are safe and to use their judgment to restrict play if unsafe conditions are present. Here is a checklist for adults, courtesy of the National Program for Playground Safety. ◗ Always be sure adults are there to supervise. Adult supervision is needed wherever children are playing. In school settings, where there are

a number of children out at recess, there should be an ample ratio of adults to children. Adults can observe potential hazards and intercede if children are misbehaving. Playgrounds that have rope activities should be avoided, as should putting children in clothing that has string ties. ◗ All children should play on age-appropriate equipment. Due to developmental differences as children age, it is essential children play on equipment that correlates to their age groups to keep play safe and fun. ◗ Make sure surfaces are cushioned. Falls account for an array of playground injuries. Acceptable Continued on page 15

cushioned surfaces can help prevent more serious injuries from falls. Materials that can be used include pea gravel, sand, rubber mats, rubber tiles and mulch.

steps should be in good working order. Equipment also should be safely anchored in the ground. If any safety hazards arise, the equipment should not be used until it is fixed.

◗ Make sure equipment is safe. Equipment should be inspected regularly to ensure that everything is in good working order. S-hooks on swings and other hanging items should be entirely closed, and there should be no protruding bolts. Footings and

In addition to the information provided by NPPS, the National Recreation and Park Association has conducted its own playground safety initiative, identifying 12 of the most common playground hazards and how to avoid them in its report, “The Dirty Dozen.”

Inadequate use zones and entrapment in openings are just two of the hazards identified by the NRPA. Individuals can download an NRPA brochure by visiting www.nrpa.org/ Professional-Development/ Certification/CPSI/TheDirty-Dozen/. Schools and other organizations can purchase the brochures

Children also need to be on the lookout for unsafe conditions. Parents and teachers can gear lessons around playground safety. By making safety a priority, children can continue to enjoy outdoor play without being injured.

Happy Centennial Port Coquitlam!

Our History In the early 1970’s the Poco Inn and Suites Hotel was originally built and operated as a small Best Western Motel. In the early 1990’s due to a fire, the motel was rebuilt and reopened for business in 1994. In 1996 under new ownership, we developed the motel into a full service hotel that opened in 1998. In January of 2009 a decision to leave the Best Western franchise and operate as an independent hotel created a whole new chapter for accommodations in Port Coquitlam bringing our standards to a higher level.

We are proud to be part of the community and have enjoyed growing and changing together and look forward to the future!

How to make healthy school lunches for kids

Confrontations focusing on diet between children and parents have been around seemingly since the beginning of time. Many children start off as cooperative eaters, anxious to try different types of foods. As they get older, the number of foods they’re apt to eat diminishes, which can make choosing healthy items for lunches and dinners more difficult. It also can make packing lunches for school more challenging. Considering school lunches must compete with far less healthy yet widely available alternatives, parents will need to be creative in their creation of homemade lunches. Here are some ideas to get you started. • Purchase a new lunch container. There are many different new and innovative lunch containers that can make separating school lunches easy. Few kids want to dig into a brown paper sack and pull out something that has been so squashed it’s unrecognizable. Partitioned lunch boxes enable you to pack different items together where they can be stored separately. The divisions also help you remember to include foods from the basic food groups, such as a fruit, vegetable, protein, starch and dairy item. • Have your child make a list of his or her favorite foods. Once the list has been made, see how you can make the foods healthier. For

• Get creative. Children may not be inclined to eat loose pieces of fruit. But if the fruit is stuck on skewers or served with a low-fat dipping sauce or caramel, it may look more appealing. Look to “mini” foods, which tend to be more fun as well. Little sandwiches and little burgers may present an optical illusion, where kids think they’re eating only a small amount, but actually it’s a full serving. • Cut foods into fun shapes. Kids may be more inclined to eat a turkey

Score Card

Rapids aim to celebrate at provincials The tournament naturally has its own pressure points, but when it comes to the Riverside Rapids, the focus will be on a celebration. The senior girls basketball team will be aiming to maximize their opportunities starting today (Wednesday) as the 2013 B.C. AAA championships tip off at the Langley Events Centre. Rapids coach Paul Langford underscored that while the team will have its own expectations in each game, the main goal is for his troupe to enjoy the experience. “At the start one of our goals was to make the provincials and give them the opportunity to play there,” Langford said of his crew that includes a Grade 8 starter and four Gr. 11s. “There’s no pressure, because we look at this as an opportunity to celebrate the season.” As Fraser Valley No. 3, Riverside has drawn Lower Mainland No. 3 StevestonLondon in today’s opener, a squad that they’ve never played. “I’ve seen them play, both at our (Tournament for Emily) and other tournaments,” said Langford. “Steveston has some very good players and we have to make sure we keep them in check... They’ve got two outstanding guards and we’ll need to get the ball out of their hands.” As to the pressure of playing in the Langley Events Centre, which has taken over hosting duties of seemingly every tournament in B.C., there shouldn’t be any case of ‘jocks in awe.’ “Our kids have played in all the big venues (this year),” the coach added. “We were at the (Telus Cup) and in Langley twice... I think the girls will be excited but we’ve played all the top-ranked teams except South Kamloops, so it shouldn’t be a factor.” Riverside takes on StevestonLondon today at 5 p.m.; a victory would put them in the quarterfinal on Thursday, 5 p.m. against the winner of South Kamloops/Mount Baker. The championship final is slated for 4 p.m. on Saturday at the Langley Events Centre (7888 200 St.).

The Port Moody Blues pair advanced to the finals in their respective divisions, and were each a hold away from gold at the Cowichan Valley-hosted event. While there was disappointment in

being so close to a win — a gold would have earned the Blues their first B.C. girls team banner — the results demonstrated good potential for next year, coach Selwyn Tam said. “It’s good for the future, for sure,” Tam said of the three medals. “Success needs some success to get it going.” McCrae, a Grade 10 wrestler who was aiming for her second straight 51-kg provincial title, was edged by Dover Bay’s Faye Tuck. “Ciara should have won it,” he said.

“It came down to a clinch after the third round but she false started. “(McCrae) definitely had the harder side, it seemed like the top wrestlers were all on her side of the draw.” Nowicki, meanwhile, was second to South Kamloops’ Larissa Piva in 69kg division. In her first provincials, the Gr. 11 Nowicki upset the No. 1-ranked girl in the division and then was close to pinning Piva in the final. “Jessica had (Piva) on her back in the second round but she bridged out and

turned it around,” noted Tam. “She was up 4-0 in the second but got thrown and was looking (in the third round) at a [loss] by criteria… (Nowicki) threw her with time running out but they ruled it was a half-second too late.” It was part of a three-medal performance by Port Moody’s girls grapplers, as Gr. 9 Josephine Cama placed third in the 90kg category. The Blues finished in fourth among girls teams, just six

Squeezing past a Prince George check during a game last month, Coquitlam’s Malcolm McKinney helped keep the Express’ playoff hopes alive on Friday by scoring four times in the squad’s 7-2 win over Cowichan Valley. A 5-4 loss Sunday to Salmon Arm, however, ended the dream.

Momentum shift ends Express’ thin playoff hopes

There will be no playoff beards this year for the Coquitlam Express. The B.C. Hockey League squad saw its last ditch chase for the final playoff berth in the Mainland Division end Sunday with a 5-4 loss to the Salmon Arm Silverbacks at the Poirier Sports Centre. Coquitlam saw a 4-1 lead evaporate under a strong march by the Silverbacks, who scored the game winner with just 23 seconds left in regulation. In the end, Coquitlam would have been eliminated when Langley topped Prince George on Sunday. “It was definitely deflating. We knew we had to win that game but (Salmon Arm) had a lot of momentum in the third period,” said goalie Cole Huggins. “We kind of felt crushed after the game. Maybe a couple of those goals I should have had, but it just seemed like

five of its past six games before Sunday. That stretch they were pushing it right to the end.” demonstrated how well the players had bonded since The Express built up a 3-0 lead on goals by Justin the Jan. 10 trade deadline, Huggins said.

Carney eager to ice B.C. AA cake Dan Olson sports@thenownews.com Slotted at No. 10, the Archbishop Carney Stars are aiming to bridge the gap during this week’s provincial AA senior boys basketball championships in Kamloops. Fresh off a strong push at the Fraser Valleys, Carney would love nothing more than to convert their underdog status for a top-five finish. The Stars stormed the walls at the Valley tourney, advancing to the final before falling 80-53 to archrival Holy Cross last week. They bolted out with a determined effort against Holy Cross, scoring 21

points in the first quarter and leading by as much as nine before getting stonewalled in the second frame. Trailing by eight at the half, Carney wasn’t able to clear the hurdle to successfully defend its Fraser Valley crown. “We had a great first half but we couldn’t complete the game,” remarked Stars head coach Steve McGinley. “I always tell my guys that if things are going bad, let’s weather the storm... Holy Cross really keyed in on our big guy (Patrick Simon) and zeroed in on him.” Simon, who averaged 30 points per game, was tightly contained in the final. He would be named to the Valley first all-star team. Picking up a second team spot was

Grade 11 Alex Baumann. The Stars began the Fraser Valleys by defeating Langley Christian 63-46, then clipped Delview 75-63. Simon tallied 32 points in the second game. The squad, which boasts 12 graduating seniors, also received stellar work from guard Josh Hombrebueno and forwards Jonathon Conlon and Jonathan Juvik. “We’re an intelligent team with [B.C.] experience,” noted McGinley. “Let’s ride the wave, because this is our March madness.” Carney, which placed sixth at last year’s provincials, opens today (Wednesday) against No. 8-ranked Duchess Park. A victory would put them into Thursday’s quarterfinal.

Archbishop Carney’s Josh Hombrebueno, right, will lead the charge at this week’s provincial AA senior boys basketball championships in Kamloops.

Club Aviva’s Jayd Gorsic took a broom to her provincial 2 gymnastics category at the North Shore Invitational two weeks ago, emerging with top scores on vault, bars and beam. Placing second overall was clubmate Alyssa Hansen, with Morgan Kosola in fourth and Angelina Floro and Sienna Riordan tied for seventh. In provincial 3, Krista MacGregor collected twin silver medals to finish fifth overall. Porter Trevisan pulled down three silver en route to third all around in her provincial 4 division, posting strong marks on vault, bars and beam. Mariko Abe-Ziegler stood second all-around in provincial 5, while teammates Allison Beyer and Kirsten Jewitt placed fourth, with medal performances on individual apparatus. Aspiring pre-national athlete Rhianne Eder recorded second on both beam and floor and third all-around. Picking up gold on floor and ninth overall was Danica Sukunda, while Ashley Fitzpatrick placed seventh all around. Also scoring medals in level 1 were Alicia Liu and

SENF, Marion Lucille (Piwoda) nee Drayton

July 24, 1926 - February 28, 2013

We are deeply saddened by the death of Marion Senf, following a year of rapidly declining health. Born in Everett, Ontario, she was the youngest child in a family of 6 boys, all of whom have predeceased her. The family had all relocated to the West Coast by 1937, and following high school, Marion was employed by BC Tel from 1943 to 1981, eventually becoming an operations supervisor. She was sadly predeceased by her husband Joseph Piwoda in 1978, and by her 2nd husband, EdSPACE Senf. She was also predeceased by her beloved niece Joanne and BOOKING her two nephews Bernard and Geoffrey. Left to mourn are her loving niece Penny and sister-in-law Doris of Kelowna For: VENABLES, PENNY and her special friend Rep: and niece-by-marriage Deanna (Bob), and she DTJames will be greatly missed by her many extended family members. Ad#:volunteering 1402786 Travelling, ballroom dancing, for the Pacific Open Heart Association, and playing a mean game of Snooker were some of her many interests. Singing with her friends in the Dogwood Songsters was also a source of much happiness for her. One of her greatest joys was gathering family members to share in the wonderful Polish dishes she and Grandma Drayton prepared. The family extends a sincere thank-you to Dr. Moira Bradford; Christine Whittingham, Clinical Care Coordinator; Irma Yates, Social Worker; and the staff of Parkside Nursing Station at Fellburn Care Centre for their compassionate and expert care of Marion during her time with them.
