elcome to our annual A-List Awards.

It’s one of the highlights of the year at the Tri City News. As you may recall, we offered online ballots and a $500 gift card from Coquitlam Centre as incentive for you, our loyal readers, to cast your votes for The Best in the Tri Cities in over 170 business categories. We had almost 2,000 voters this year! While our contest does not qualify as a scientific survey, the level of participation does lend credibility to the outcome, as do our strict rules on how we count and qualify the ballots. Each ballot must contain a minimum of 20 votes, only one ballot per person (ip address), per community were accepted. I want to offer my sincere congrats to the businesses who received this year’s A List award. They are most deserving of our recognition as the Best in the Tri Cities. But don’t just take our word for it; visit as many of the winning businesses listed in this keepsake magazine and decide for yourself! We want to thank all of you who participated and entered this year’s contest. We look forward to counting your votes next year! Shannon Mitchell Publisher | Tri City News

lame it on the beer.

Port Moody, the smallest of the Tri-Cities, has enjoyed some oversized attention from the rest of Metro Vancouver in the last few years thanks to a boom in the making and consuming of craft beer throughout the Lower Mainland. PoMo’s Brewers Row — that stretch of Murray Street near Rocky Point Park that is home to four craft beer makers — has become a popular destination for small-batch suds aficionados. And the arrival of the Evergreen Extension last December has made it easier for visitors from outside the area to partake without worrying about designated drivers. But the City of the Arts is not just about the beer. There are notable pie and ice cream makers, florists and more (and even, as highlighted in a recent edition of The Tri-City News, a lifestyle fashion brand that seeks to make Port Moody cool).  And just as there is cooperation and cross-promotion amongst local brewers, there is a concerted effort by the proprietors of these mom-and-pop operations to promote one another’s enterprises and local shopping. These efforts don’t go unnoticed as little Port Moody attracts daytrippers, shoppers and people who might just decide to make it their home.

L O CAL FAVOURIT ES W ITH R U NNING FAN AT I C PA U L SL AY M A K E R OF P ORT M OODY

I

am a local business owner with my wife, Penny Plamondon, in Port Moody. We’ve been here since September 2000 - 17 years in same location. I’m also a sub elite marathoner, and I’ve represented Canada at the World 100km Championships. Beyond that, I also enjoy coaching athletes from Grade School to Seniors in running.

As an avid runner, can you tell us about your favourite trails in Port Moody? Oh, yes. Inlet Trail – approx. 10km – love this run as I can see the water most of the time and usually run into friends doing the same. Then there is Rocky Point out to the Velodrome on Burnaby Mountain – approx.17.5km – head out on trails, again seeing the water, get some climbing, challenging hills – finish with ice cream or beer can’t go wrong. And, of course, Backyard Trail – approx. 8km – going up…just off Heritage Boulevard, follow the trail behind the houses up to almost Panorama and then across to Bert Flinn Park to find some fun trails winding down to Ioco Road finishing along the pathway in behind the Rec. center.

So, after your run, where do you head for a beverage or snack? After a run we always try to support the local establishments, being a local business means trying to support locally. Gallagher’s in the village is great for the coffee fix, or over to Café Divano. Brewers Row is sometimes hard to choose from but we tend to favor Moody Ales and Yellow Dog; friendly atmospheres and great beers. If we finish at Rocky Point, Jamie and Yvette at Rocky Point Ice Cream are wonderful at providing the best treats in town!

For new runners, are there any programs they can get involved in? New runners are the key to our success and seeing them thrive. We have a beginner program that takes first timers from group zero to 30 minutes of running at the end of 12-weeks. Our moto of “No one runs alone” means that its not about how fast you are doing it but just the fact that you are doing it. The program teaches proper technique, nutritional tips, training schedules to keep you on the right path, injury prevention and many other elements to make sure a beginner has an amazing experience.

As much as we know you love to run, are there any other activities you really enjoy doing in Port Moody? Our family loves to get out and go, we mountain bike in Bert Flinn and other trails up the mountains, hiking on many of the same trails, generally being outside as Port Moody has so many great areas to visit.

Thanks so much, Paul. Finally, do you have any advice or words of wisdom for local aspiring runners or entrepreneurs? Dream big and follow your heart. Many people have great ideas and goals get but can’t figure out how to achieve them. If you have a big goal find someone you trust to be a sounding board and put a timeline together that makes sense.

S TA F F ITE FAV O U R

P ORT MOODY S TATI ON MUS EUM The Port Moody Station Museum is owned by the Port Moody Heritage Society and is located in Port Moody’s 1908 CPR Station. The building and displays illustrate the role of the station in the community and the early development of Port Moody. The Port Moody Station, built in 1908, was the second railway station in the area. In 1945, the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) moved the station closer to town and it operated at this Queen St. location until it was officially closed on September 25th, 1976, when the CPR discontinued their passenger service. The Port Moody Historical Society (now the Port Moody Heritage Society), who were operating a museum on Kyle St., bought the station. In 1978, it was moved to its present location on Murray St. and refurbished to serve as a museum facility. The Station Museum was officially opened on July 1st, 1983. Also on the property are various railway pieces, including a 1921 CPR sleeping car, the Venosta. Restored in 1987 with assistance from the West Coast Railway Association, the Venosta features two sleeping compartments and a ladies’ powder room with accessories from the 1920s. The railway display in front of the station features four-man handcars and a boomcar, which were originally used by track crews for transportation and the delivering of supplies for maintaining the railway right-of-ways. The Port Moody Heritage Society has been collecting artifacts and photographs representing the Port Moody area since its beginning. Today, these acquisitions are stored in the climate controlled basement of the Museum. The artifact collection contains over 17,000 pieces including more than 4,000 historical photos. Please visit portmoodymuseum.org for details.

23 years in the same location! Serving the Tri-Cities since 1995

2342 Clarke St., Port Moody I

Twenty years ago, Randy Weir was searching for a place to start his new guitar business. Weir had always wanted to own a music shop. When he was a teenager taking guitar lessons at New West Music, he would tell the owner, Carol, he would buy the store from her one day. So when it came time to find a location for himself years later, Weir knew he wanted to re-create what Carol had inthe Royal City: a place where musicians could call home. In the late summer of 1994, he happened to be driving down Clarke Street in Moody Centre -“for the first time in my life,”he recalls - when he saw a“For Sale” sign in a storefront. “People who grew up around here remember it as the Little Candy Store,” Weir said. He took a chance, recognizing he was at a crossroads in his life, and purchased the 1,400 sq. ft. building at 2342 Clarke St. - christening it, of course, Crossroads Guitars and Drums. On his front sign, he pays tribute to his two guitar heroes, both of whose lives were cut short: Stevie Ray Vaughn on the left and Jimi Hendrix on the right. “I started it from nothing,”the Coquitlam resident said.“I didn’t know anything about retail or bookkeeping but I was good with customer service and I knew about vintage guitars.” At that time, the internet had not yet come into fruition so Weir got a lot of walk-in business. His classic guitars were a draw – including for one Japanese collector who paid $10,000 in a single day for some of his instruments. Weir continues to sell vintage and second- hand guitars and banjos some of which are hand-painted – but sales are now only a part of his business. Like other music stores around MetroVancouver, Crossroads has put a lot of focus on private lessons in particular, guitar, bass, drums, mandolin and banjo.

Weir employs teachers John McLean, Billy Mendoza and Ed Mohoric for guitar and bass lessons (see bios at http://crossroadsguitar.com/guitar-lessons/) and Mike Devison for drum lessons (http://crossroadsguitar. com/drum-lessons/).A new teacher – Devon Wells – instructs in guitar, mandolin and banjo (http:// crossroadsguitar.com/2017/08/339/) A couple of years ago Weir increased the lesson time to 45-minute classes for his 100-plus students. Weir felt that 45 minutes was an ideal length of time and he believes in offering quality lessons with quality instructors. Weir has a sound background in guitars and can help customers with choices pointing out the knock-offs made in China as well and for the mass-produced guitars, they need a technician to fine tune them and bring them to their full potential. Lesson registration is currently ongoing so contact Crossroads Guitar & Drums now for more information.

I

am a Ukrainian-born-Canadian, formally educated in the printing industry with a Masters in Engineering. I’m also a former Mrs. British Columbia and reigning Ms. Canada Universal Elegance, competing at Mrs. Universal pageant in London this year.

As a fashionista, can you tell us about your favourite places to shop in Port Moody and why they are your favourites? I love to shop local and Port Moody has a few shops that are unique and awesome - My Collection in Newport Village for latest styles and Pinball Alley for vintage treasures.  

Everyone knows you can work up an appetite after a day of shopping. Where do you like to eat and what is your favourite menu item? I love the atmosphere of Brown Social House for appetizers and drinks, Spacca Napoli for yummy pizza and tiramisu and Gabi & Jules for simple coffee and to-die-for peach crostatas.

What’s your favourite part about living and working in Port Moody? Vibrant, young, traditional but hip city with great parks and transportation. True sense of great community.

If you had guests visiting from out of town, where would you take them or what would you show them? Rocky Point for its great pier and Rocky Point for Ice Cream and treasure hunt on St. John’s Street at 3 fantastic stores: Around My House Consignment, Willow & Wallflower and Pinball Alley.

Thanks so much, Tetyana. Finally, do you have any advice or words of wisdom for local aspiring beauty queens or designers? Go for your dreams! Create! Shine! Always give a helping hand to those who need it.

T

o travel through Coquitlam in 2017 is to see a city growing before your eyes. More than 125 years ago, it was a town on a river where a sawmill provided hundreds of jobs and houses for workers. Half a century ago, it was a place to which city dwellers ventured for rural weekend getaways. A couple of decades ago, it was awaiting a promised SkyTrain line. Last December — finally — that promise was fulfilled with the completion of the Evergreen Extension of the Millennium Line. And with the arrival of SkyTrain, the constant growth and development that has characterized the last few decades has accelerated. Construction continues on Burke Mountain. New towers go up in Burquitlam. And the Town Centre has sprouted highrises (and commercial space) like wild flowers. Such SkyTrain-fuelled growth is not without its challenges: the demand for new schools on Burke, the need for rental housing in Burquitlam and affordable housing everywhere. But for the first time, Coquitlam residents, as well as those from neighbouring cities, have a legitimate rapid transit option, opening up possibilities for where people can live and work. And now the real work begins as the city and its citizens strive to deal with the growth while maintaining a thriving and welcoming community.

LOCAL FAVOURI T ES

I

am an ambitious and driven young professional working in the Tri-Cities. I am the Communications & Digital Marketing Manager at the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce. I have an Associate of Arts and Communications Certificate. Beginning in 2018, I will embark on a new journey towards my Bachelor of Communications at Royal Roads University. I began at the Tri-Cities Chamber as the summer intern in May 2014. Taking over the the Communications role at the end of 2014, I have been in my position for almost 4 years. This role has given me the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally.   

Working with local businesses, can you tell us about any big innovators in the Tri-Cities? What do they do? And, why is it so important? Dynamic Structures and Finger Food Studios are two companies that come to mind immediately. Both winners of the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards for Business of the Year, these companies push the boundaries with their out-of-the box ideas and innovative creations. Dynamic Structures, located in Port Coquitlam is responsible for some of the largest telescopes around the world. As well, they design and build Disney’s theme park rides. Finger Food Studios is a tech company, also located in Port Coquitlam that has made waves in the artificial intelligence and internet of things industries. The creation of their HoloLens hardware awarded Finger Food international accolades. As well, Finger Food Studios is leading the world in innovation and environmental impact by being the first business to be carbon positive. The tech industry is rapidly growing, especially in Metro Vancouver. We are always encouraging business growth in our region. Having companies such as Dynamic Structures and Finger Food Studios at the forefront of the national business community and in our backyard builds the Tri-Cities reputation as a place to do business. In addition to these large businesses, I wanted to point out the hard and important work of the not-for-profits in the TriCities. Although, NFPs are not considered innovators, they are integral to the success of the Tri-Cities community as a whole.

W I T H BUSI N ESS CON N ECTOR ST EPHAN I E REN N I E OF COQUI T LAM

Why is the Tri-Cities a great place to open up shop? The Tri-Cities is the best place to live, work, and play in Metro Vancouver. The area features affordable housing, a strong business community, and ample green spaces that host a variety of festivals and other community events throughout the year. Our region has a flourishing business community and is truly special as it is made up of entrepreneurs that truly care about the success of each other, a rare quality to find. The Tri-Cities also offers competitive retail pricing and multiple office sharing solutions. With the recent opening of the Evergreen extension, the Tri-Cities has never been so connected to neighbouring communities. The customer base in the Tri-Cities has grown from our three cities to the whole of Metro Vancouver.

For new businesses, are there any programs they can get involved in? What do these programs offer? Join the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce! Comprised of over 900 businesses, the Tri-Cities Chamber is the best place to connect, learn, and grow your business. Create longstanding relationships and build a support system, receive the tools you needs to make your business successful and gain new clients by offering exclusive discounts to members.

Life can’t all be business, are there any other activities/ hobbies you really enjoy doing in the Tri-Cities? Where and what? • SUP Yoga and Paddleboarding on Buntzen • Sunday Funday on Brewers Row then strolling around Rocky Point Park with a scoop of ice cream • Coquitlam Crunch • Go shopping at Coquitlam Centre! • Hike Minnekhada’s High Knoll • Walk along the Pitt River

Do you have any advice or words of wisdom for local entrepreneurs? • Always go after your dreams • Think big and never be afraid to take risks • Everyone has something to teach you – listen, absorb, and learn – always be learning • Join the Chamber! There’s nothing more important when starting a business than having a support system. The Chamber gives you the ability to create this, and along the way, you’ll build a number of new friendships. www.tricitynews.com | 2017 |

The Golden Boot, located at the corner of Ridgeway and Nelson in Coquitlam, has been in existence since August 1997. From the very beginning, owner-chef David Azzi has emphasized that he was not in competition with fast-food outlets, nor with restaurants that placed more importance on quantity than quality. For that reason the food served at the Golden Boot, whether it be the pasta, the sauces, or the desserts, is homemade.

am a member of BC Chef Association, an owner/ chef for the past 35 years, currently two restaurants, Pasta Polo is Coquitlam and Club Ilia at SFU Burnaby Mountain.

Your restaurant, Pasta Polo, is fantastic, but are there any other restaurants you would recommend people try in the Tri-Cities? Saint Street Grill is fantastic. It is independent and a locally owned restaurant in Port Moody.

Where and what menu item do you recommend? I highly recommend the grilled New York striploin or stuffed breast of chicken. Two of my favourites.

Why is the Tri-Cities a great place to open a restaurant? More people are choosing the Tri-Cities as their home, and the area is growing. There is a need for more independent owner/operator restaurants.

58

| 2017 | Presented by the Tri City News

After a long day in a kitchen, is there anywhere you recommend people go to relax? Nothing beats a walk in Rocky Point, Lafarge Lake or a visit to the Port Moody Arts Centre or Silk Gallery.

Life can’t be all about food and drink. Are there any other activities/hobbies you really enjoy doing in the Tri-Cities? As I mentioned, visiting the Port Moody Arts Centre, but I also go to the Coquitlam Farmers’ Market every Sunday.

Thanks so much, Fred. Finally, do you have any advice or words of wisdom for local foodies? Grow your own organic garden. And, make the family involved in taking care of it. Use the fresh, tasty produce to create healthy food.

oCo Pride begins and ends with Terry Fox.

Which is not to say he’s the only source of residents’ pride in their city, just that his story bookends everything.

The annual Terry Fox Hometown Run draws several thousand to the city’s streets to run, walk and cycle in his name, for his cause.

Port Coquitlam’s most famous son made his mark on this nation more than 35 years ago with his tragically shortened Marathon of Hope, a herculean effort to run across the country to raise money for cancer research. And his mark can be found all over PoCo. The library. The high school he attended. The annual Terry Fox Hometown Run that draws several thousand to the city’s streets no matter what the weather to run, walk and cycle in his name, for his cause. A working-class hero from a working-class town, he modelled and exemplified the value of caring and giving, and giving it your all. An icon and example for Port Coquitlam people of all ages, he probably wouldn’t believe how his story could resonate for generations, and he certainly wouldn’t recognize the PoCo of today. The changes are everywhere. Huge commercial and residential spaces in the Dominion Triangle. Constant evolution in the downtown core. And one of the biggest projects in the city’s history: a massive redevelopment of the recreation complex to serve a growing community. But despite the changes, one thing will always remain the same: Port Coquitlam is the place Terry Fox came from.

I

grew up working at my family business, being around bikes was and always will be a comfortable place for me. Although I didn’t always like smelling like tubes and tires. I took a break from the bike store during my 20’s to work in the entertainment industry where I was an on air broadcaster for numerous radio stations. I couldn’t be happier changing gears and joining the family business once again. I love being a part of the community that I grew up in, encouraging a healthy lifestyle from the saddle of your bicycle.

As an avid cyclist can you tell us about your favourite routes or trails in Port Coquitlam? I love a challenge, so lately I’ve been enjoying riding up David to Coast Meridian and up Coast Meridian to the top of the hill. I’ll do that 3-4 times to help with hill endurance and it’s an awesome mind game. It’s a short distance, but it’s a huge accomplishment when I’m done. It’s not always about the distance or the destination; it’s about how you feel afterwards.

So, after your ride, where do you head for a beverage or snack? The best place to stop after a bike ride has to be NuLife Living Food Café on Glen Drive. I’m plantbased and everything there is plantbased so it’s perfect post or pre fuel for a workout. Lots of options if you have other dietary restrictions also!

For new cyclists, are there any programs they can get involved in? What do these programs offer? At Westwood Cycle I offer a one-on-one class. It’s always nice to learn some of the basics before you hit the road. I also go over safety and etiquette. Cycling can be very intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be if you can get some of the basics covered.

As much as we know you love to ride, are there any other activities you really enjoy doing in Port Coquitlam? I grew up playing baseball so you can sometimes find me at Gates Park either playing or cheering on my brother-in-law. I also love going to yoga class at Oxygen Yoga (to stretch out after a big ride) and running along the Coquitlam River.

Thanks so much, Chelsea. Finally, do you have any advice or words of wisdom? If you see me around town (I’ll usually be on my hot pink Brompton folding bike), come up and say hi! I love talking about bikes and giving any advice on how I can encourage you to get out and ride. It’s easier than you think to ditch the car and commute by bike. You’ll know what I’m talking about if you come in and take one of our e-bikes for a ride.

Held July 1, this event features a fishing derby for kids and pancake breakfast and ends with an exciting fireworks display. In between there are children’s activities, musical entertainment, dance performances, a salmon barbecue, vendors and displays, and multicultural activities. Last year, children’s activities included Hamster Balls, Face Painting, Bouncy Castle and Arts and Crafts. We can’t wait to see what’s in store this year. We’re sure there will be plenty of local talent, food vendors and a community marketplace. And, most importantly, did we mention the the fireworks show at dusk?

HYDE C REEK HATC HERY

S TA F F ITE FAV O U R

The Hyde Creek Watershed Society operates an Education Centre and Salmon Hatchery. Run by a group of dedicated volunteers, the hatchery works to preserve and enhance fish and wildlife habitats and promote environmental awareness and education to the public. Programs include: HATCHERY TOURS Students will gain a basic understanding of the role of hatcheries in helping salmon. The tour consists of a tour of the Hyde Creek Hatchery and its role in protecting and feeding salmon in a protected environment to help support the numbers of salmon in the system. BUG EXPEDITION Come observe, magnify, and identify all the creepy-crawlies inhabiting your local streams. This program explores what salmon eat - and how these insects indicate the overall health of a stream or watershed. STORM DRAIN MARKING What do the yellow fish on storm drains mean? Come out with your group and help us identify unmarked storm drains. You can choose a location close to your school or home. Easy walking for all ages. Please visit http://www.hydecreek.org/programs/ for details.

C O L O NY FARM RE GIONAL PARK

Open fields, hedgerows and wetlands provide habitat for more than 200 bird species as well as other animal species in this regional park.

I

am the pastor at the Redeemed Christian Church of God - Trinity Chapel in Port Coquitlam. I am an accountant and a member of the Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia (CPA BC) and have worked both in the private and public sectors. I also have a Masters Degree in Theology.  I believe service to humanity is the best work of life and have been involved in serving the community. The church has a social arm called TC Multicultural Society to reach out and help in the Tri Cities. In the past, the society has done free income tax service, free youth and drug seminars, free hamper program, free community lunches etc. Also the a society conducts a free annual family fun fair. Over the past three years the family fun fair has been growing with about 1,000 people attending.  

As a pastor, can you tell us a little about the religious community in Port Coquitlam? I have had some contacts with other faiths in the community and it has been one of mutual respect. For example, I recall visiting a mosque sometime in the past and was received well by the Imam and we had useful discussions.

Why did you choose to be a pastor in Port Coquitlam? Relocating to Canada and living in an apartment in downtown Vancouver was challenging for my young and energetic

children. They needed room to play. After searching for a bit, Port Coquitlam was a no brainer due to the lower prices for homes and green spaces for children to play. Pastoring in the same community that my family lived was simply the way to go.

If one of your congregation was to take you for lunch is there somewhere that you’d like to go? There are a number of eating places in the Tri Cities that are quite good! Though I do not eat out frequently, there is a Greek restaurant and Asian restaurant in town, I wouldn’t mind going to for a free lunch any day!  

If you had guests visiting from out of town, where would you take them or what would you show them? A walk or a bike ride through the Traboulay Poco Trail. It is a beautiful trail that encircles the Port Coquitlam community.

Thanks so much, Steve. Finally, do you have any advice or words of wisdom for the community? It is simply asking each community member the question what they can do to make the community better? No matter how small, I will encourage them to come out and do it. The community is  better with everyone helping!
