jkurucz@thenownews.com It’s a message of peace 60 years in the making that will extend across five communities and 72 kilometres over a two-day period. Port Moody resident Guy Black is spearheading a series of memorial events on June 21 and 22 to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War. Fittingly enough, the whole process kicks off with a ceremony at Banting Middle School, where both of Black’s children attend. His 12-

year-old sons Sean and Cameron will perform as part of the school band, while other Banting students will prepare food and host VIPs and dignitaries. “I think the school ceremony is going to be really neat and with the whole school being involved, that’s a big deal for me,” said Black, 48. “Especially with this being in a school setting, the biggest message I want to pass along is the peace aspect of things.” After the morning’s events wrap up, Black’s multi-community odyssey will begin in earnest.

SHARE food drive on Thursday SINGLE MOM AND FOUR KIDS AN EXAMPLE OF HOW SHARE HELPS TRI-CITIES RESIDENTS

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com For Rodiana Brindamour and her four children, life is just starting to become a bit more stable. But it wasn’t always that way for the single Coquitlam mother. Rodiana moved to Canada from Indonesia in 2004 with her then husband, a Canadian, leaving behind her whole family and entire support system. What was supposed to be an exciting time for the young woman in her 20s turned out to be anything but that. Rodiana found herself in an abusive relationship. She left her husband on numerous occasions — seeking refuge in safe houses. The pair would get back together, but the relationship would quickly deteriorate. Eventually she left him for good, but as an immigrant trying to learn the culture and language, she struggled to find work and the resources needed to house and feed her young family on her own. That’s where the SHARE Family & Community Services Society helped turn around a rocky start for Rodiana in her new country. Rodiana reached out to SHARE’s child and family services department about four years ago. The society helped her find resources, including the food bank and after-school programs for her children, and a place to live. SHARE also helped the single mom with her parenting skills through its Nobody’s

LISA KING/NOW

Single mom Rodiana Brindamour and her kids, Samuel, Ava, Tatiana and Hannah, who range in age from one-and-a-half to 10 years old, have benefited from SHARE. Perfect program, and when needed, provided items like clothes and school supplies to the children. “Being a single mom is tough,” the 35-yearold told the Tri-Cities NOW. “Basically, they [SHARE] help me a lot.” The society has even helped break down some of the more unexpected cultural barriers some new Canadians might face.

Rodiana jokingly recalled at first not knowing how to cook some of the food she was receiving from the food bank. The items were foods like pasta and cheeses, which weren’t part of her traditional cooking back home. Plus, Rodiana said her kids were picky, which added to the challenge. But the folks at SHARE took the time to give

her some tips and recipes. “Luckily, my kids liked Canadian food,” she said. Though Rodiana and her family have come to rely on the food bank a lot less recently, she understands the need in the community never goes away, especially during the summertime. Tomorrow (Thursday, June 20), SHARE is organizing the Feed and Free SHARE Bear food drive for the food bank at Coquitlam Centre. The goal is to raise 10,000 pounds of food and $10,000 as “bail” for the SHARE Bear, which is all really going toward the food bank. The food bank needs 65,000 pounds of food to serve the Tri-Cities during summer alone, and currently the shelves are close to bare. Kate Lawrence, director of development at SHARE, said food bank users come from all walks of life. “A lot of people you would see walking on the street, you would never guess in a million years they would come to the food bank,” she said. “You just never know what is down your path.” As for Rodiana, she’s still looking for work, but is now taking classes to improve her English, while her children are doing much better in school. The food drive kicks off at noon and runs until 6 p.m. in the northeast parking lot at the H&M entrance of the mall. CKPM FM 98.7 will be live on location, and children can take part in the festivities, including a barbecue, face painting and hugs

From Coquitlam, Black will make his way towards Burnaby Mountain and SFU. After scaling the summit at SFU, his travels will take him east along Hastings Street and eventually over the Iron Workers Memorial Bridge. Black will then attempt to make his way up yet another local mountain, Mount Seymour, before ending up back in Burnaby’s Central Park. All told, it’s a 72-kilometre trek that Black hopes to finish in the early morning hours of Saturday, June 22. “Korean War veterans, men and women, are forgotten,” he said. “No one knows about the Korean War, and although we do know a bit more about it now, it’s been largely forgotten. I’m trying to draw more attention to [veterans] and thank them for what they did.” To make it all physically possible, Black has spent the better part of two years training: routine hikes up Burnaby Mountain, long distance treks in and around the

Tri-Cities or six-hour, marathon round trips to the North Shore by foot. And while Black’s immediate focus will be in the Lower Mainland, he’s also turning his attention east as well, as he’ll collect stones from those supporting his trip as a symbolic gesture. “The stones from significant, meaningful places and from certain people will be given to me and carried by me throughout the Lower Mainland and they will end up in Korea,” he said. One of the more significant stones he’ll be collecting will be found thousands of feet above sea level. Black will receive a guided trip via North Shore Search and Rescue members up Mount Seymour to Hastings Lake, a small, isolated lake named after the lone North Vancouver resident to die in the war, Donald Perkins Hastings. A plaque honouring Hastings’ wartime contributions will be permanently installed at the remote location later this fall. “To me, thanking veterans for restoring peace is what counts,” Black said.

Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com Coquitlam Mounties continue to probe a double shooting in a quiet neighbourhood last week, but are releasing few details about the case. Police were called to a home in the 3200 block of Ballenas Court in east Coquitlam Thursday after a man and a woman were shot around 10 p.m. The two victims were taken to hospital and listed in stable condition. Investigators suggested the shooting is targeted and possibly drug related, but won’t offer much more information. “We’re also open to other motives if we discover information that leads us down that path,� RCMP Cpl Jamie Chung said earlier this week. He said police aren’t sure what the living arrangements were at the house, but noted investigators believe several people were in the house at the time. An RCMP press release stated that both the two victims and the home are known to police. The shooting appeared to span two crime scenes as police seized a vehicle from the McDonald’s parking lot on North Road near Austin Avenue that is part of the

Coquitlam RCMP’s major crimes section is handling the investigation and no one related to the incident has been arrested at this point. Kevin Maruk lives near the house and said he heard a dog barking and tires screeching before falling asleep. By morning, several cop cars were in front of the home. Maruk said a man in his 50s lives on the property, but suggested the bottom portion of the house has been rented out. Maruk said the neighbour-

hood is “pretty good,� but pointed out that particular house has been a concern for residents. “He was a nice guy when we walked by, but a lot of people seemed to hang out there,� he said. Another neighbour, who did not want to be identified, said city bylaw officers have issued numerous tickets to the homeowner. That neighbour had talked to a fellow neighbour, who mentioned hearing someone banging on the door of the downstairs suite and a man and a woman yelling just before 11 p.m. Despite the incident, the man said the neighbourhood is a great place to live.

38 firearms turned in TRI-CITIES RESIDENTS RESPOND TO MONTH-LONG, B.C.-WIDE GUN AMNESTY Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com At least several dozen guns in the Tri-Cities won’t be falling into the hands of criminals, thanks to a provincial firearm amnesty program. So far this month, Coquitlam Mounties have received 38 firearms from local residents turning in their weapons for amnesty. Though the detachment didn’t make any predictions as to just how many guns would be brought in during the month-long campaign, RCMP Cpl. Jamie Chung suggested any number is good. “That is the whole point of the gun amnesty,� he said. “We don’t want people to have their firearms at home and have their house broken into and their firearms stolen.� The amnesty allows resi-

dents with unwanted or unregistered guns or other weapons to call their local detachment and turn them in without any charges. The list of weapons includes guns and ammunition, even imitation and pellet weapons, pepper spray and knives. The amnesty does not include weapons used in a crime. The details of the types of guns returned during the amnesty were not available, but Chung noted the detachment is considering putting the weapons on display when the campaign is done. The weapons will eventually be destroyed. In the meantime, the amnesty continues until the end of June. Mounties want anyone thinking of turning over their guns to follow a few procedures.

Residents are asked to call the local detachment at 604945-1550 to let police know they have a gun they want to turn in. An officer will retrieve the gun from the home. Police do not want anyone to carry a gun to the door to greet an officer, but rather, to leave it in one spot for the cops to handle. Police are also reminding gun owners not to bring their weapons to the detachment, especially the front counter. If by mistake someone does bring their gun to the detachment, they’re advised to leave it in the trunk and let an officer handle the weapon. Information related to the number of guns handed into the Port Moody Police Department was not available prior to the Tri-Cities NOW press deadline. twitter.com/jertricitiesnow

City won’t police inlet boats Jeremy DEUTSCH jdeutsch@thenownews.com While some Port Moody residents are eager to see boat squatters on Burrard Inlet move out of the area, it doesn’t appear that’s going to happen in the near future. Currently, the waterways of the inlet are under federal jurisdiction, and any enforcement is handled by Port Metro Vancouver. Port Moody Mayor Mike Clay said the city had considered taking over jurisdiction of the inlet and was close to signing a deal just a couple of months ago, but decided to hold off after recommendations from lawyers. He explained signing the agreement would give the city the ability to enforce the waterways on the inlet

and come up with options like charging for moorage at Rocky Point Park. However, an agreement would also mean the city would take on the liability and cost of enforcement. Clay questioned whether it would be worth it for the city to take on the responsibility. “We’re being very careful with it that way,” he said. There is no timeline for when the deal might be back on the table, and it would still need the approval of council. The issue of boat squatters surfaced last week after several residents reached out to city council and the media with their concerns. Some of the issues, which were expressed in an e-mail to the Tri-Cities NOW from a resident, include the number of boats on the water, the

potential for collisions and the boaters dumping raw sewage. There are an estimated 37 boats on the inlet. A few years ago there were half that number. The speculation is the boats moved to the inlet after Vancouver put new regulations in place several years ago for boaters on False Creek. Last year, a derelict boat washed up in Port Moody, costing the city thousands of dollars to remove and dispose of the vessel. But the mayor is hesitant to push for a crackdown on the boaters, arguing that if one has to go, all the boats on the inlet have to be removed. Clay said if there are environmental or navigational issues, they should be addressed.

Anniversary Celebration

“It’s a very subjective question in a lot of ways,” he said. “Let’s not just start removing boats because we don’t want boats to be on the water. It’s where boats go.” In the meantime, he noted Port Metro Vancouver officials have started contacting and identifying owners of boats on the inlet, to try and come up with a solution.

You & The Law CHRONIC PAIN A LEGAL SORE SPOT One of the hardest things to put up with is chronic pain. Mrs. M, 51 at the time of trial, knew that from bitter personal experience. Mrs. M had injured the soft tissues of her neck and shoulder in a rear-end accident. At the trial, 3 1/2 years after the accident, she still complained of pain. She also claimed she couldn’t return to work as a seamstress or resume her previous recreational and domestic activities. After the accident, Mrs. M received over 300 physiotherapy treatments and saw multiple medical specialists. None, however, could find any physical cause for her continuing symptoms. But none also suggested that she was malingering or intentionally hanging on to her problems. In the end, the B.C. Court of Appeal upheld the trial judgment awarding Mrs. M some $134,000 in compensation. The court said that where accident victims continue to suffer after their physical injuries have healed, an obvious question arises: Is such pain “real”? But, the court said, even if psychologically-caused, such pain is still compensable if the person can prove two things: first, that the psychological pain was caused by the accident and not by a desire for care, sympathy, relaxation or compensation, and second, that the person cannot overcome the problems through his or her own “will-power.” In another case, Mrs. Y, 53, also fought to prove her chronic neck and shoulder pain wasn’t imagined and should be compensated. She should have recovered from her soft tissue injuries within a few weeks or, at most, a few months after her car accident. But she didn’t. Before her accident, she ran the family home, played tennis and volleyball, taught her daughter

dancing, singing and music, and was actively involved in their church. After, however, she was depressed, couldn’t sleep, and suffered constant pain and discomfort. She spent most of her time in a wheelchair and wouldn’t leave the home alone. Her husband even quit his job to stay home and look after her. Mrs. Y was found to have a “somatoform pain disorder” – an unconscious need to be in the dependent invalid role, with her husband and daughter expressing great concern for her and paying her lots of attention. Like Mrs. M, Mrs. Y wasn’t doing this on purpose, nor was she motivated by any conscious desire to resist getting better. The B.C. Court of Appeal awarded Mrs. Y even more money than Mrs. M – $75,000 for her chronic pain and suffering and more than $150,000 for loss of homemaking and other losses. In general, then, our highest court in B.C. has confirmed that chronic pain you suffer following an injury is compensable – even if there’s no physical reason to explain it – if the pain was triggered by the accident and you can’t overcome it through your own sheer will-power. But, remember, each case will be judged on its own specific facts, and more importantly, on the credibility of the person claiming ongoing pain and disability.

Do as I say, not as I do, premier says

S

ince the election, Premier Christy Clark has been talking a lot about restraint. She’s opined on the need to contain costs and preached the gospel of fiscal discipline. Don’t ask the government for money, is the message being sent. Because the answers will be “No, no and no.” Turns out, however, that while all animals are equal, some are more equal than others — particularly Clark’s loyal party insiders. No sooner had the premier finished telling everyone they’d need to tighten their belts and suck it up, than it was revealed she’d wasted little time cushioning the blows for some favoured bureaucrats. Some of her political staff will see their salary caps jump to $230,000. Raises range from 18 per cent to 60 per cent for the elite, who helped Clark pull off her stunning election victory. Ministerial assistants will also see their maximum salaries go up to $105,000 — a raise of 11 per cent. Politically, it’s undoubtedly smart to make such a cynical move as early as possible. The increases will soon be eclipsed by the budget, which itself will soon fall prey to the summer break and general political amnesia. But the pay hikes are no less offensive. At a time when a “core review” threatens civil service cuts and seniors in extended care homes are being charged for wheelchairs, it behooves those at the top to set an example. Instead, Clark has made it clear just who will be experiencing restraint and who will be practising business as usual. — Guest editorial from the North Shore News

B.C. SHOULD DO MORE TO HELP SENIORS IN CARE Re: “Residential care plan is not working,” letter to the editor, Wednesday, June 12. Unfortunately, Kent Burns’ experience of securing a bed in a public residential care facility for his elderly mother is all too common, despite the findings in a scathing report by B.C.’s Ombudsperson, Kim Carter, in February 2012. In this report, Ms. Carter tackles the issue of bed placement head on. She recommends the Ministry of Health improve the process around transfers to a senior’s preferred facility and that health authorities indicate how long transfer to a preferred facility would take. Importantly, Ms. Carter also recommends health authorities stop penalizing seniors who pay for a non-subsidized residential care bed while waiting for a subsidized bed. And there’s much, much more. The report serves as an excellent road map to improve seniors’ care across the board. There’s no good reason for the provincial government to stall implementation. Yet, government has ignored the vast majority of the Ombudsperson’s 176 clear and concise recommendations. The Best of Care (Part 2) can be found online at www. ombudsman.bc.ca. You can join thousands of British Columbians who have already urged the government to follow the Ombudsperson’s lead by contacting your local MLA and telling them to act on all these recommendations.

Coal the next battleground

W

hile those two oil pipeline proposals from Enbridge and Kinder Morgan have been hogging the limelight in recent months, another part of the energy debate is about to elbow its way onto the public stage. That would be the issue of increased coal shipments through Metro Vancouver for export to Asia. It’s a subject that is just heating up, as environmentalists turn their sights on a vital part of B.C.’s natural resource-based economy. B.C.’s coal industry generates more than $3 billion in economic activity each year, and provides high-paying jobs for many people. It’s in a position to grow, as Asian countries’ insatiable appetite for coal shows no signs of ebbing any time soon. This province has three coal exporting facilities, one in Prince Rupert and two in Metro Vancouver (Neptune in North Vancouver and Westshore Terminal in Roberts Bank). Another company — Fraser Surrey Docks — is proposing to turn its container terminal into a coal loading facility. Helping to drive this push for more coal travelling through Metro Vancouver is the huge demand in Asia for “thermal” coal from the United States, mostly from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming. While most of B.C.’s coal is of the metallurgical variety and is used primarily to manufacture steel, thermal coal is primarily burned to create energy. There is not a single coal exporting facility on the U.S. west coast, although a couple may be built over the next decade. In the meantime, however, the only way to get that thermal coal to the Asian marketplace is through one of Metro Vancouver’s terminals.

VIEW FROM THE LEDGE Keith Baldrey Environmental activists have seized on two arguments in opposing more coal traffic. First, they argue, more coal means more coal dust falling on the neighbourhoods through which coal trains run. The second argument is that exporting more thermal coal to Asia will simply worsen the global warming trend as the more coal that is burned, the more greenhouse gas emissions occur. The industry insists the coal dust concerns have been taken care of because coal trains are sprayed with dust-eliminating liquids at various stages of their journey, and at the terminals themselves. But the climate change argument may be a more difficult one for the industry to refute. The movement to end global warming is growing and certainly appears to have a large constituency in British Columbia. The coal industry’s main allies are countries like India and China, which import most of the coal from B.C. and the U.S. Those countries’ counterargument about their need to burn coal for energy is also a compelling one, as more energy means more people in those vastly populated countries can be lifted out of life-threatening poverty. My Global BC colleague Jas Johal’s recent four-part series on coal exports included an interview with Sam Pitroda, an advisor to the Prime Minister of India. He noted the hypocrisy of

Western countries, which have been burning coal for more than a century, purporting to limit the ability of India and China to do the same. Then there’s the jobs argument. Premier Christy Clark’s re-election win was based on the relentless message of the need to create jobs, and it obviously proved to be a popular one with the public. As the debate heats up, the Clark government will come under pressure to state its position on the movement of coal (although the federal government has jurisdiction over ports). And it is the kind of issue that could further expose the growing split in the NDP between environmentalists and blue collar job proponents. We’ve seen this movie before, of course. The fact this province’s economy is largely based on the extraction and export of natural resources has made B.C. ground zero in many campaigns waged by environmentalists against industries. The environmental movement has never explained how shutting down or greatly reducing B.C.’s natural resource sector won’t have negative consequences for the provincial economy. And there appears to be no realization among those who oppose mining or forestry that those activities help pay for their health care and education. But those inconsistencies have not stopped the environmental movement from enjoying past successes. Will it be successful in stopping not only the construction of oil pipelines through B.C., but also the proposed increase of coal shipments through our ports? It’s a classic made-in-B.C. kind of fight, and it’s just getting started. Keith Baldrey is chief political reporter for Global BC.


LETTERS FEED AND FREE SHARE BEAR

My name is Tony Roy and I am on the board of directors for the SHARE Family & Community Services Society. I am writing to ask for your help to Feed and Free SHARE Bear. SHARE Bear is hungry and has been looking for food in all of the wrong places and has been caught! In reality, of course, I’m helping to get the word out that the food bank needs support over the summer. As you may recall, it’s the time of year where our food supply reaches critical levels and we need your help to feed those who need it most. Please visit the following website to make your gift to the food bank’s summer campaign online and help free the SHARE Bear: https://give.sharesociety.ca/ donatenow. Our goal is to raise $10,000 in bail money and 10,000 pounds of food to get him (and the most vulnerable in the Tri-Cities) through the summer months. Another great way to give is to bring the family and help free the bear yourself. You’re invited to Feed and Free SHARE Bear, from noon to 6 p.m.

on Thursday, June 20 at Coquitlam Centre (H&M entrance). You can also follow the SHARE Bear’s exploits on Facebook, at www.facebook/com/ sharefcs?fref=ts. Thanks again for your help. Tony Roy SHARE Board of Directors PS: Hunger doesn’t take a summer vacation and throughout the year, 43 per cent of our food bank recipients are children. If you would like more information on this campaign or about the food bank, please contact SHARE’s director of development, Kate Lawrence, at 604-529-5119 or Katherine.Lawrence@sharesociety.ca.

BYELECTION IS NEEDED IN COQUITLAM Two Coquitlam councillors are heading to Victoria as a result of the recent provincial election. This situation certainly speaks to the quality of talent that makes up our elected city officials. A full council complement is certainly needed to carry on city business. Vigorous, informed

debate representing various points of view is a necessity. Leaving two council seats vacant without conducting a byelection will, in fact, impair the work of the current council. City Hall inquiries inform me that the city has sizeable election reserve funding. A byelection would use monies already designated and incur no additional expense to Coquitlam taxpayers. The fact that we have two vacancies to fill makes a byelection even more significant. I hope Coquitlam council will agree to hold a byelection so that those interested in running can come forward to do so, and Coquitlam residents will have a full council to conduct city affairs. The provisions for such a byelection are part of the provincial act governing municipal government, and there’s so sense in sidestepping them at this time. Steve Bailey Coquitlam

headlines recently for catching (and releasing) a bright blue lobster. According to an Associated Press story published last year, reports of brightly coloured lobsters are becoming more common. While scientists debate why pink, blue, orange and even calico lobsters are turning up in traps, one thing is certain: No lobster, no matter what colour, deserves to be boiled alive. Lobsters can live to be more than 100 years old, they recognize individual lobsters, remember past acquaintances, have elaborate courtship rituals, and help guide young lobsters across the ocean floor by holding claws in a line that can stretch for many yards. Multiple studies have indicated that lobsters feel pain, and lobsters who are boiled alive likely suffer every second of the three long minutes it takes for them to die. The next time you consider eating one of these interesting living beings, please pass, and opt for an animal-friendly vegan meal instead. Paula Moore The PETA Foundation Norfolk, Va.

An e-mail statement indicated the cost of materials and equipment would be greater after the transition because no rebate will be received for the PST, yet the cost of exempt services will be reduced because no PST is charged. “While individual municipal rebates were expected to vary, Port Coquitlam’s net affect was nominal depending upon the mix of goods and services purchased in the

On the musical side, the duo Jou Tou Qiu Xia He Chinese pipa virtuoso and Andre Thibault on the flamenco guitar and the Oud (Arabic lute), will perform traditional melodies and songs of Quebec with an oriental flavour. Imagine Canada, China and Spain coming together for an unforgettable musical event. The members of this group combine their heritage and traditions to create a dramatic fusion of contemporary global music with a unique French-Canadian sound. In the spirit of this celebration that is traditionally done in the middle of neighbourhood streets, the Mackin House Museum will offer a sale of antiques and a collectible market at Heritage Square and will serve pancakes with maple syrup inside its warm and welcoming old house. Place des Arts will also be presenting crafts and activities for children. This celebration is another opportunity to get together and celebrate in Maillardville, where the “Joie de vivre” always awaits you. Organizers encourage you to bring your guitar, harmonica, accordion and of course your voice, to make this event a real block party. A barbecue will be served by the Richard Joseph Group and Townhall Public House, which is located on Brunette Avenue. This is a free event designed for the whole family, and will run rain or shine.

Parade set for Saturday

Happy 100th Port Moody! your full service travel agency serving the tri-Cities since 1988

BC Reg. #1828

Who doesn’t like a parade? That’s what organizers in the City of Arts are counting on, as Port Moody gets set to host the first parade in the community in four decades. As part of its 100th birthday celebrations, the city will host a centennial-themed parade on Saturday, June 22. Port Moody is the only municipality in the Lower Mainland that doesn’t have a community parade. The parade will start at the Port Moody Recreation Complex at 11 a.m., and move along Ioco Road to Murray Street before winding down in Rocky Point Park. The entire route is about two kilometres long.

Organizers are hoping for roughly 100 entries — everything from floats and bands to community groups and clowns. The parade will be kicked off by a steamgenerated fire engine, led by horses from Victoria. The city used to hold a parade down St. Johns Street, starting in the 1920s, but that tradition ended in the early 1970s. Thousands of people are expected to turn out for Saturday’s event. For more information, go to portmoody. ca/parade.

...life is given, lifestyles are chosen with Whole Food Supplements, Natural Skin & Haircare Products & more! Dedicated to your whole family, including pets.

THE TRI-CITIES NOW | WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19, 2013

Original Joe’s: A neighbourhood pub in name and nature From the 16 micro brew beers on tap, to the personal service to the “Community Pint,” everything about Coquitlam’s Original Joe’s smells local. They may be one of the country’s leading restaurant brands, but Original Joe’s on Austin Avenue has positively immersed itself in the community in its five years plus on the block. So much so that the popular restaurant/ bar is considered by many as their local neighbourhood pub where, to borrow the lines of a famous Boston bar, “everybody knows your name.” “We’ve been in business for just over five years and I’d like to think we’re one of the most popular places to dine and drink in Coquitlam,” said Soleille Cyr, Original Joe’s General Manager. “We’re really a neighbourhood restaurant and bar and have a lot of regular customers.

“It’s not a huge place, so there’s a real personal feel about it and with the attention people receive. We’re all about good food,

good beer and good service.” With 16 micro brews on tap - five of them are their very own, the rest are local brewing

companies - it’s easy to see why OJ’s has earned itself a place at Coquitlam’s social dining table.

“We also have half price wine on Thursdays, which can see the place very busy,” added Cyr.

“We can and do cater for larger groups and do take-out as well,” said Cyr. And not satisfied with bringing the neighbourhood to them, OJ’s reaches out into the community in a rather unique way by designating a “Community Pint,” where 50 cents from every sale goes directly to a local charity. The Coquitlam Animal Shelter, Kidsport, Courage for Kids and Inspire Health have been beneficiaries of the pint – which is Granville Island right now – with more than $300,000 raised for charity at OJ’s across the country. So, get yourself down to OJ’s for a pint and/or indulge in their range of comfort food for the summer season. It’s a time, as OJ’s says, to “keep cool and join us on the patio.” Original Joe’s, 2662 Austin Ave. Call 604 939 4047. Open Monday - Sunday: 11 a.m. to 12 a.m.

Be prescription informed

I

t is a well-worn ritual. Near the end of your medical visit, the doctor gives you a prescription. Traditionally, it is handwritten and because calligraphy isn’t a prerequisite for medical school, you may not be able to read it. Most patients are like polite travellers in a foreign country. They may not understand everything that was said, but they’re willing to take a leap of faith and assume they got the gist of it. That may be a big risk if you’re travelling close to the border of a hostile country or about to take a potentially dangerous drug. An important principle in medical ethics is informed consent. In order to make a decision about what treatment — including medication — to take, you need sufficient information. So what should you know before you fill that prescription? There are five crucial areas of information summarized with my acronym, BRAIN: Benefits, Risks, Alternatives, Interactions and the Need for follow-up. The first question you need to answer is, “What is this drug for?” (i.e. What are

FREE PARKING • DAY PASS ONLY $10 • FREE FOR CHILDREN UNDER 16

HEALTH WISE

Dr. Davidicus Wong the intended BENEFITS?) That’s what your family will ask when you get home. So if you’re not sure, you should ask before you leave the doctor’s office. It’s not unusual for a patient to come out of the hospital or a clinic with five or more medications but not know what each is supposed to do. Doctors don’t mind clarifying this. We don’t want you to be on any more medications than you need. The second area of information you need to know is the RISKS of taking this medication. These are the potential side effects. You won’t get every single side effect listed in the pharmacy handout. Only a few lucky winners will hit the jackpot. Like most lottery players you may not get any at all. However, as doctors, we should tell you the common side effects and the serious side effects (even if they are rare). For example, the common

side effects of oral steroids, such as prednisone, are immune suppression, insomnia, osteoporosis, stomach irritation and ulcers. A rare but serious side effect is avascular necrosis of the femur that may require a hip replacement. Many drugs cause nausea and changes in bowel movements. Most drugs — including herbal remedies — have the potential for allergic reactions. The third question that should be answered is, “What are the ALTERNATIVES?” What are the risks of not treating this condition? Are there other medications — cheaper or more expensive, synthetic or natural? Would lifestyle changes (i.e. a better diet or more exercise) be sufficient? The fourth important area of information you need is the potential for INTERACTIONS with food or other drugs. Grapefruit juice interacts with many medications. It can raise the blood levels of many cholesterol-lowering drugs and increase the risk for side effects. The blood thinner warfarin has to be carefully dosed in order to be effective in preventing blood clots without increasing the risk of bleeding.

Many medications interact with warfarin, including non-prescription acetaminophen (Tylenol) and vitamin K (present in many foods, including green leafy vegetables). Finally, the fifth area of information you require is the “NEED to follow up?” If this is a short-term prescription — such as a course of antibiotics for an ear infection, should you return to the doctor if you’re not better? How long should you wait? If the prescription is for a chronic condition, such as diabetes or high blood pressure, how often should you be monitored? When should you be rechecked? Autonomy is a cornerstone of western medical ethics, but to make informed decisions about your health, you need this important information. If you’re not sure, ask these questions and pick your doctor’s BRAIN. Dr. Davidicus Wong is a family physician at the PrimeCare Medical Centre. His Healthwise column appears regularly in this paper. You can read more about achieving your positive potential for health at davidicuswong.wordpress.com.

Are you looking for a new decoration for your home? Dozens of banners created by PoCo students will hit the market this weekend. The banners were made by Riverside Secondary and Kwayhquitlum Middle School students, with help from local artist Diane Moran. They were created between February and April 2012, using a paper-cut collage effect. Each piece was then photographed and converted into a digital file before being placed on a banner. They’ll be put up for sale on Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23 at The Outlet in Leigh Square, between noon and 4 p.m.

Each banner will be sold for $5, and sales will take place on a first-come-first-served basis. ••• Students from Port Moody and Heritage Woods secondaries will perform Friday, June 21 as part of a recital that serves as the culmination of their training in the Songwriters Of a New Generation (S.O.N.G.) program. PoCo musician David Blair, along with Mother Mother guitarist/vocalist Ryan Guldemond, will host the event, while the students show off the music fundamentals they’ve learned throughout the year. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. at Gallagher’s Coffee Bar, 232 Newport Dr. in Port Moody.

Trip spotlights A’s balance

JUNIOR A’S PUT DEFENCE FIRST Dan OLSON sports@thenownews.com Even an embarrassment of riches needs its complimentary supply of elbow grease to shine. While the offence is stocked with a seemingly endless supply of offensive sticks, the Coquitlam Adanacs are getting it done with defence. The B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League reigning champions improved to 11-3 thanks to a sweep in Nanaimo, where they racked up victories of 12-7 and 8-4 over the weekend. While the scores likely weren’t as overwhelming as most expected when the first-place Adanacs visited the 1-12 Timbermen, what impressed Coquitlam bench boss Neil Doddridge the most was the composure and unity shown during a twoday jaunt away from home — and that they held the opposition to 11 goals over two days. “I think we took it as a challenge, having a rare two-day road trip,” remarked Doddridge. “We kind of broke it down to six periods and wanted them to approach it that way. Certainly our first two periods on both days were our best.” On Saturday, the A’s built up a 4-1 advantage en route to an 8-4 doubling. Holding Nanaimo to just a goal in each the first and third periods was the kind of form the team wants to see as it heads into the regular season stretch drive. Wesley Berg, in just his second game of the season, tallied three times, while Reid Reinholdt and Evan Wortley had two goals apiece. A day later, Coquitlam tallied the game’s first six goals and led 10-1

CHUNG CHOW/NOW

The Coquitlam Adanacs’ offence, powered by the likes of Cam McIntyre, centre, continues to gain steam as the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League heads into the regular season stretch drive. in the second period before a few mental lapses in the third created some tense moments. When the dust cleared, the visitors prevailed 12-7. In 14 games so far, the Adanacs have allowed a league-best 99 goals against. Their offence, meanwhile, sits fourth-best with 153 goals.

SPORTS SHORTS KIM ALL-AMERICAN

On the strength of her school-record score as a sophomore, Coquitlam’s SooBin Kim was named a second-team All-American in a vote by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association last month. A member of the University of Washington Huskies women’s golf team, Kim posted a scoring average of 71.97 over the 2012-13 season, setting a new benchmark for the school. The Gleneagle Secondary alumna was also chosen a first-team All-Conference player.

With the recent arrival of Berg and Cole Shafer from college, and JeanLuc Chetner due in purple and yellow this week, the team is finally ready to floor its best lineup. “We go into every game expecting to win, and I was pleased with our start,” noted Doddridge. “In the third

we probably started thinking about the ferry trip home, about looking for killer whales in the water or something… We switched up the goalies and just re-focused to get through it.” CONTINUED ON PAGE 35

Hall ready for 2013 inductees Variety is the spice of life — and the underlying theme of the 2013 inductees into the Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame. The best, brightest and most accomplished athletes and builders will be added into the Hall of Fame on Thursday at the Poirier Sports Complex. In its fourth year, the Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame will induct an illustrious group of achievers: Mike Gates (lacrosse), Bill Green (builder - baseball), Wes McLeod (soccer), Jim Young (football) and the 1984 Coquitlam Little League All-Stars (baseball) The newest inductees are being recognized for their stellar athletic achievements and/or lengthy contributions to sports in Coquitlam. Also being celebrated are this year’s honourees for the Coquitlam Wall of Fame, which commemorates the achievements in 2012. This year’s Wall of Fame award recipients are: Olivia Aguiar (soccer), Mathew Barzal (hockey), Carlo Basso (soccer), Chanell Botsis (athletics), Justina DiStasio (wrestling), Nathan George (athletics), Dave Jones (soccer), Brittany Timko (soccer), Bill You (weightlifting) and the Coquitlam Vikings (football). The event begins at 7 p.m., where Global TV sportscaster Barry Deley welcomes the inductees, honourees and family and friends to the Poirier Sports Complex. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door, with admission $10. For more on the Coquitlam Sports Hall of Fame, call Les Wingrove at 604-936-5128, or visit www.coquitlamshof.com.

EXPRESS DEAL GOALIE BOUNCE BACK FOR A’S AZZI A LIFETIMER The Coquitlam Express shipped out a goalie last week and pocketed some futures. The B.C. Hockey League club dealt netminder Nick Reynard to the Victoria Grizzlies in exchange for 20-year-old defenceman Chris Regus, who was immediately shipped to the Penticton Vees for future considerations. It was part of a four-team deal, which began with the Griz acquiring Regus’ rights from Fort McMurray in Alberta. The BCHL also released its 2013 Showcase schedule, which launches the regular season in Chilliwack. Coquitlam will play the Merritt Centennials on Sept. 6 and the Alberni Bulldogs on Sept. 8.

Dane Dobbie’s powerplay tally early in the third stood up as the winner in the Coquitlam Adanacs’ 9-6 victory over Nanaimo on Sunday in Western Lacrosse Association action. Dobbie’s goal split through Nanaimo’s fourgoal rally, after the visiting A’s stormed out to a 6-2 lead after 27 minutes of play. Rookie Matt Dinsdale and Brett Hickey supplied two goals each, with Jesse Guerin, Ryan Johnson and Jeff Zywicki adding singles. A day earlier, the Langley Thunder eked out a 12-10 decision over Coquitlam. Coquitlam, 3-5-0, visits Victoria on Friday, then hosts Burnaby on Saturday, 7 p.m. at the Poirier Sports Centre.

Coquitlam’s William Azzi joined an illustrious group this weekend, when B.C. Soccer presented him with a Lifetime Membership Award. A co-founder of Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer and longtime soccer coach, manager and advocate, Azzi was joined by Burnaby’s Victor Montagliani, Surrey’s Steve Reed and Robert Sawtell, and the late Les Sinnott of Terrace in receiving the honour. The group were chosen for their dedication, time and passion to the sport over a range of years and for their thoughtful contributions to the game. It was presented at the B.C. Soccer AGM, held on Saturday.

Team nets historical cheer The Port Coquitlam-based Vancouver All Stars cheered their way to a historic first at last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Cheer Championships in Orlando, Fla. The 26 females, aged 14 to 27, captured second place in the international open 5 division. Called the Ice Queens, they were attending their eighth world championships. Previously, the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best showing was fourth place. Their routine involved complicated 720-degree double twists into extended stunts, high-flying basket tosses, and flexibility on jumps and stunting. The competition featured 35 teams from around the World. The team includes: Rochelle Allen, Kiwi Bahrey, Shaudy Beheshti, Crystal Bjerke, Jasmine Chan, Thalia

Changfoot, Racheal Curry, Sophie Dee, Tiana Dietrich, Ashton Ellis, Kelsey Eriksen, Denika Garrick, Kylie Goodwin, Ashley Impellezzere, Tess Kirilenko, Sarah McLellan,

Stacey McQueen, Mercedes LaFonde, Alexandra Naudi, Vanessa Newly, Ally Ordough, Laura Patten, Lexey Salvador, Kim Stevens, Catherine Tham and Kelsey Williams.

LISA KING/NOW

Members of the Vancouver All Stars show off their silver medals and trophy after placing second at the World Cheer championships last month in Orlando.

Vets return for home stretch CONTINUED FROM PAGE 34 Berg counted four goals and two helpers, while Vincent Ricci netted a pair and set up two others. Also scoring were Erik Klein, Cole Shafer, Taylor Stuart, Reid Reinholdt, Wortley and netminder Davide DiRiscio â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who was credited with a shortanded marker in the second period after a Nanaimo shot ricocheted off the Adanacs crossbar and down the floor past a surprised T-menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s netminder. Coquitlam got a chance to rest some of its starters over the two days, with Tyler Garrison missing both contests and leading scorer Chase McIntyre playing in just one game. The larger roster numbers hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been daunting for the first year coach. If anything, Doddridge and assistants Dane Dobbie and Jon Harnett have tried to maximize the extra depth the club has, with all but one player now back

from college. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Players will get in the games based on their play,â&#x20AC;? stated Doddridge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pleasure to have the options after how we began the year (shorthanded). Having guys like Wesley Berg back excites the players on the team â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the team is energized by that.â&#x20AC;? Coquitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next test comes tonight, 7:30 p.m. against Langley at the Poirier Sports Centre. Although 8-5 and having dropped four of their last seven games, Langley will be amped up with a new netminder â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and Toronto Rock draft pick â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tyler Glebe in tow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We match up well against them,â&#x20AC;? remarked Doddridge of the Thunder, who the Adanacs bested 12-8 earlier this month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a good core of players whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been around and now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve added a goaltender from Orangeville.â&#x20AC;?

jdeutsch@thenownews.com School District 43 officials knew they would have to make cuts to deal with a ballooning deficit, and on Tuesday employees and the public learned just how deep the reductions will be once the budget is done. To make up for a $12.1-million projected operating deficit for the 2013/2014 school year, the district is looking at cutting six per cent of its staff across the board. More specifically, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposing to cut 142 pos-

itions within the district. A further breakdown of the numbers has the district cutting 81 teachers, 19 teacher assistants/special education assistants/youth workers along with 32 clerical/custodial/IT and facilities positions and 10 from administration. The staffing cuts add up to $11.5 million in savings. Some of the positions being cut will be offset by attrition, with as many as 30 staff in various positions already putting in their retirement papers for the end of the year. CONTINUED ON PAGE 5
