Coquitlam has sketched out an early game plan to attract office space to city centre. But whether it’s a winning formula won’t be known for decades. City staff presented a report to council Monday outlining strategies to create a downtown and double employment in the area in 25 years. The report noted, Coquitlam’s city centre encompasses 1,789 acres — and Vancouver’s is 1,157 acres. “Our downtown is physically the same size as Vancouver, which is from Stanley Park to Chinatown, which is a huge area with lots of stuff in it. We can’t achieve [what Vancouver has] over-

night,” manager of community planning Andrew Merrill pointed out to council. The staff report said, “It is important that the existing malls and shopping plazas do not become solely residential enclaves. Commercial and office development is essential for securing long-term economic prosperity since it adds to the non residential tax base and provides job opportunities.” The city envisions office business districts built around the Lincoln and Coquitlam Centre SkyTrain stations. The report notes the closer office buildings are to SkyTrain stations, the lower the vacancy rates and the higher the rents. The city is proposing developers be required to build standalone office buildings, although in combination with other types of development since the districts are not meant to become exclusively office precincts. see

The city of Port Moody is considering a proposal to redevelop the Flavelle sawmill site on the city’s waterfront but, as it does so, it must also take into consideration the effects of climate on water levels there and at nearby Rocky Point Park. Cities must also plan for the potential for wildfires in areas that border forests. left: SUBMItteD; rIght: trI-cIty newS fIle photo c l I M At e c h A n g e S e r I e S : PA R T 2

Climate change and the city: Tri-Cities are living on the edge Municipalities have for years grappled with ways of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in an effort to battle climate change. But the effects of rising temperatures are already being felt and cities are beginning the process of adapting to more frequent and intense weather events. In this series, The Tri-City News looks at the policies and procedures Coquitlam, PoCo and Port Moody are putting in place to deal with the fallout of our changing climate. Today, Part 2 of the series focuses on municipal land use.

ore than 21,000 square kilometres of forest have burned in B.C. during the recordbreaking wildfire seasons of the last two years. And with scientists predicting longer and drier summers as a result of climate change,

planners and policy makers in communities that border dense forests — like the TriCities — are starting to rethink how they develop along their edges. “There are proactive things we can do,” said Alex Boston, the executive director of the Renewable Cities program at Simon Fraser University. He said cities need to implement policies limiting the amount of development that occurs on properties susceptible to wildfires and increase building setbacks in forested areas. In places where development at the wildland/

urban interface is unavoidable, building code changes mandating the use of noncombustible materials are necessary to slow down potential fires and keep them from spreading to the rest of the neighbourhood, Boston added. “We can increase the resiliency of the areas where we are vulnerable,” he said.

New Approach to Youth Recreation

Park & Ride

Coquitlam is moving to the next phase of our draft Youth Recreation Plan. For the past year, the City has done substantial information-gathering including focus groups, in-person surveys of more than 300 youth and young adult recreation users, as well as an online survey of more than 630 people. Feedback gathered included: youth and young adults are looking for convenient, low-cost and engaging opportunities with flexibility in times, location and commitment levels, and they want to connect with peers with shared interests, as well as with positive adult leaders who recognize their abilities, understand their needs and can support them in their goals. A draft Youth Recreation Plan is expected in late spring. Visit coquitlam.ca/youthplan for details and updates. NEIGHBOURHOOD NEWS

Harper Park Expansion An expanded nature park that highlights the history of Burke Mountain will open in the Smiling Creek neighbourhood this fall. Located along Harper Road, the 4.4-hectare (10.8-acre) park expansion will be funded and constructed by Wesbild. Trail development is to begin in early spring. Additional information and project updates are available at coquitlam.ca/parkprojects.

The City operates $4/day park and ride facilities near Lafarge Lake-Douglas and Lincoln Skytrain stations including the Pinetree / Guildford lot. There is also on-street park and ride spaces on Westwood Ave. and Pinetree Way and a park and ride lot at the corner of Westwood Ave. and Lincoln Ave. less than 300m from Lincoln Station. Parking at these lots are free after 6 p.m. and all day on Sundays. January 1 saw minor parking rate increases to reflect taxes levied by TransLink and the increase will offset the tax and maintain the City’s level of service.

An entertainment district envisioned

Homeowners will see a 2.9% tax increase in July

continued from front page

In 2011, with 10,500 jobs in the City Centre, Coquitlam set the bar for growth at 22,000 by 2041. By 2016, however, the first five years yielded fewer than 500 jobs. Now, the city is looking at doubling the number of jobs in the area if it’s to reach its 2041 goal. To help make it happen, the planning department proposed to double the current minimum commercial density requirement for developers to create a complete downtown. Coun. Brent Asmundson suggested tripling it but Merrill said given that the market is cool on Coquitlam office space, preferring to be closer to Vancouver, “tripling it as opposed to doubling it seemed a little bit too far.” Coun. Dennis Marsden said it’s critical for Coquitlam to see more people get off at its SkyTrain stations to go to work and get on to go home — currently, the reverse scenario dominates. Marsden also encouraged staff to find out what big companies would need to come to the area, like Surrey has done with its city centre in the Whalley neighbourhood. “What we have to do is make it abundantly clear to everyone we want to move this beyond local employment service to something

much bigger than that,” said Marsden. In conjunction with the office space, the report proposes an entertainment district — restaurants, pubs, lounges, nightclubs, movie theatres, live entertainment venues — along a southern extension of The High Street through the current Coquitlam Centre mall site connecting the two business office districts. The city would also like to see a hotel near Lougheed Highway and Pinetree Way to anchor the two business districts, although the report didn’t dismiss exploring other locations. It also suggested a combination hotel and residential tower could be considered. Surrey’s city centre and Burnaby’s Metrotown areas each has a hotel/condo combo. The report said the hospitality industry believes Coquitlam could support an additional hotel, particularly in City Centre. The report also proposes zoning other areas of the area for a mix of commercial and light industrial but no residential. Those would located in the southeast corner of city centre south of Christmas Way and along Barnet Highway toward Port Moody.

Commercial property tax hike will be 1.9% for ’19 in Coquitlam Grant GranGer ggranger@tricitynews.com

Coquitlam council is boasting its 2019 budget will have one of the lowest tax increases in the region — but it will still mean a nearly 3% tax hike to residential property owners. Council gave first three readings to a budget Monday that includes a 2.56% rise in property tax revenue. Homeowners will see their taxes go up by 2.9% and commercial owners by 1.9%. The city said that’s because, in the past, commercial taxes have been relatively high in comparison to other jurisdictions, so the city has been shifting the burden by 1% every year to homeowners until it levels out. The city estimates the average homeowner will see a $57 hike to their tax bill in 2019. “Coquitlam is in a good financial position with a strong economic outlook,” said Mayor Richard Stewart during his opening remarks Monday. “We have taken on no new municipal-supported debt in the last 10 years and have built reserves from non-tax revenues, helping us provide

amenities to residents now and provide a legacy for future generations.” The biggest expense is policing, at $38.6 million. That increase includes giving the RCMP all of the $714,800 it requested to hire four of the six new officers it wants — it is asking Port Coquitlam to pay for the other two — for its youth, domestic violence, sex crimes and traffic divisions, and someone to dig evidence out of hard drives and computers during investigations instead of paying an officer overtime to do such work. The biggest beneficiary of this year’s spending plan was the parks department but

it was also the one with the longest wish list. In January, Coquitlam’s parks, recreation and culture services general manager, Raul Allueva, asked for 13 enhancements carrying a price tag of $966,200 but got about two thirds, totalling $660,300, with approval for the six biggest requests. They include hiring a facility development manager at an estimated $170,600, and two other managers with sticker prices of $149,200. The planning department wanted six items but got five that will cost $404,000. The only item that didn’t make the cut was $143,000 to bolster the neighbourhood plan-

ning capital program to hire outside technical expertise, keep temporary staff working on public consultation, and expand communication of its planning initiatives to the public. Instead, council decided to dip into density bonus funding to pay for the department’s request. The engineering department got approval for $246,000 for its vehicle fleet and customer service clerk requests. What it didn’t get was the $216,000 it wanted to add to the extreme weather budget to keep up with rising material costs and inflation, and support for several initiatives to increase service levels. For the first time, the budget includes $700,000 to pay for the new provincial employer health tax that kicked in Jan. 1. Stewart noted only about 40% of the city’s budget is funded by property taxes and utility charges. The rest comes from development cost charges, community amenity contributions, grants, matching funding from other levels of government, corporate partnerships or from city reserves. The budget is expected to receive fourth and final reading at Monday’s council meeting.

Greg Moore and Orrange owners plan Patina in downtown

Janis Cleugh jcleugh@tricitynews.com

The sound of hundreds of road racing cyclists whirling around downtown Port Coquitlam will be heard again this summer. And volunteers and sponsors are now being sought to make the fourth annual PoCo Grand Prix a success. Last week, the city hosted a meet-and-greet for businesses wanting to get involved in the July 12 bike competition and street festival, which last year attracted nearly 10,000 spectators. Businesses have several ways to benefit from the action, from taking part in the trade expo to having exclusive naming rights. In exchange, and depending on the commitment level, companies can gain exposure through marketing and get VIP seats. Meanwhile, at least 200 volunteers are required to help with event set-up and take-down, and to lend a hand as drivers for pace vehicles, first aid attendants and race marshals, for example. The race schedule has changed slightly this year to accommodate downtown re-

tailers and service providers: Roads will be closed at 3:30 p.m. for the first race starting at 4 p.m. and the last sprint wrapping up at 10 p.m. As well, the course track will run in the opposite direction from the previous three years, circling clockwise from the Shaughnessy Street stage. Also, to meet demand, the highly popular kids’ race will be an hour long; parents can sign up cyclists ages three to 12 for free beginning June 1. The Corporate Challenge has been cancelled. The PoCo Grand Prix is one of six events in the BC Superweek — Canada’s largest professional road cycling series — happening July 5 to 14 in Metro Vancouver. • To volunteer or sponsor, visit pocograndprix.ca.

A new brewhouse is set to open in downtown Port Coquitlam this summer. And the business has at least one familiar name behind it. Former PoCo mayor Greg Moore and his wife, Erin, have teamed up with Brian Orrange, owner of Orrange Kitchen + Bar, and his wife, Kim, plus another investment partner to launch Patina Brewery Brewhouse and Barbecue in the building that once housed Inno Bakery and, previously, a provincial liquor store. Tuesday, PoCo council gave two bylaw readings to rezone the property at 2332 Marpole Ave. — next to a Chevron gas station — and hold a public hearing on March 12. Moore told The Tri-City News last Wednesday his team has already hired its head chef and sales director — both PoCo residents — and a brewmaster; another 30 staff will be brought on and paid a living wage, Moore said, while culinary arts students from the nearby Riverside secondary school will be recruited for work experience.

The building that was once home to Inno Bakery and a provincial liquor store will likely become Patina Brewery Brewhouse and Barbecue by June, said former Port Coquitlam mayor Greg Moore, one of the owners. JANIS CLEUGH/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Moore said the name Patina came during a branding exercise last year: The owners wanted a title that reflected their values of producing high-quality, organic food and beverage. Food will be sourced locally, Moore said, and a herb garden and beehive will be installed on the roof of the one-storey building they’re leasing. As for the craft beer, Moore said Patina will make five house brews: lager, IPA, ale, a darker beer and seasonals. A 10-seat tasting room will be located next to the 60-seat eatery. As well, they aim to have their product sold at pubs and liquor stores in the Tri-Cities.

Should the concept take off, Patina will expand to other Metro Vancouver cities. “Our goal is to open in multiple locations,” Moore said. At a Feb. 19 committee meeting, Coun. Glenn Pollock said the future brewhouse is generating a lot of buzz in the community; an open house, held Feb. 2, drew 125 people and gained positive feedback. “In the 11 years I’ve been on council, I’ve never seen such excitement,” Pollock said. “This is exactly the type of thing that the downtown needs,” Mayor Brad West added. Susanna Walden, executive director of the PoCo Business

Improvement Association, said her organization has been lobbying for new development in the core. “We want a vibrant mix of services and this could potentially bring in a new demographic.” Still, Coun. Nancy McCurrach said she’s concerned about noise for Patina’s neighbours. A city planner noted the opening hours will be 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday to Thursday, and 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday. Patina’s plan for an onsite brewing facility and brewhouse is similar to what’s currently under construction at the Cat and Fiddle Sports Bar and Restaurant.

No van, but Share will keep PoMo $

PoMo council backs off rental-only zoning bylaw

Mario BarteL mbartel@tricitynews.com

MORE ONLINE

Share Family and Community Services will be able to use $10,000 it received from the city of Port Moody last year, even though it no longer needs the van it intended to buy with the funds. Claire MacLean, Share’s CEO, told Port Moody council at its meeting Tuesday the society reached out to city staff about the grant after it decided in January to close its Share’d Treasures thrift shop on St. Johns Street this spring. The money, which was awarded as part of the city’s community grant program, was earmarked to help replace an aging van that is used to transport donated items. Instead, MacLean said, Share hopes to use the money to support other programs it operates that have been hobbled by a shortfall of financial support from the United Way. She said those programs include its Tiny Bundles program, which supports new moms, as well as the family resource program it operates in Port Moody in conjunction with its food bank to provide help to clients and forge connections with community services. “This would go a long way to sustaining that,” she said. At a meeting of council’s finance committee last week, a recommendation was passed to request Share return half the grant as it wouldn’t be fair to other community organizations that receive funds based

Road trips for PoMo council? tricitynews.com on addressing specific needs. Port Moody’s community grants are awarded based on the recommendations of the city’s citizen advisory committee, which is comprised of 250 volunteer residents. Last year, $17,100 was doled out through the program, including: $5,000 to the Burrard Inlet Marine Enhancement Society for programming like guest speakers and community nature walks; $1,100 to the Pocomo Meals on Wheels Society to help it pay the cost of providing meals; and $1,000 to the Volunteer Cancer Drivers Society to reimburse volunteer drivers for minor expenses and fuel. Share’s grant was the largest. “I think their record speaks for itself,” Coun. Steve Milani said of Share. “I have no doubt they’re going to put the entire amount to good use.” Port Moody’s chief financial officer, Paul Rockwood, said city staff is in the process of further refining the parameters of the community grant program, which could include a provision that a group returns funds if it no longer needs them for the purpose they were intended to address.

Properties where rentals planned would have been affected

MORE ONLINE

What’s up at Woodland Park? tricitynews.com

Mario BarteL mbartel@tricitynews.com

Port Moody won’t be restricting four multi-family properties in the city to rental only after all. At its meeting Tuesday, council heeded a staff recommendation that it not proceed with a bylaw it was considering last December for such zoning for properties at 3370 Dewdney Trunk Rd., where PC Urban has been approved to build 229 market-rental and five below-market-rental units; and another project to be built by Woodbridge Homes at 3131-3137 St. Johns St. Two other properties council was considering for rental zoning are already occupied by rental townhouse complexes; Moray Place is a non-market 52-unit complex owned by Metro Vancouver Housing; and Woodland Park, on Cecile Drive, is a 200-unit market rental development. Coun. Hunter Madsen said zoning properties for rentalonly where rental projects are already in existence, or where new rental projects have been approved, seems redundant and not in the spirit of the power municipalities had been granted by the provincial government last May to create rental-only zones.

Port Moody council decided at its meeting Tuesday not to enshrine rental projects such as Woodland Park with rentalonly zoning. MARIO BARTEL/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

In his report to council, Port Moody’s social planner, Liam McLellan, said the developers of the two new rental projects that council approved last year have already made agreements with the city to protect their rental status for at least 20 years. He added that even after those agreements expire, council could still reject any application to convert the properties to strata. In a letter to council, Robert Cadez, the director of development for PC Urban, said if its property on Dewdney Trunk were rezoned, it would have significant less value than its current zoning and could jeopardize financing for the rental units it intends to

build there. “This change creates unnecessary duress to our project,” Cadez said. James Howard, president of Woodbridge Homes, told council rezoning his project to rental only would present an additional burden by changing the rules just as construction is about to begin. Instead, he suggested, council should focus on incentives to builders that would make the construction of rental projects more financially viable, like streamlining the approval process. “This is the conversation we should be having,” he said. Coun. Diana Dilworth suggested municipalities could

throw that ball back to the province by challenging it to change the way rental properties are assessed so they don’t lose value but, rather, increase in value “because of what they bring to the community.” Coun. Meghan Lahti agreed, adding if that doesn’t happen, “we’re never going to be able to get on the other side of this.” In his report, McLellan also said the city already has several tools — such as its rental protection, strata conversion and tenant relocation policies — that could be used to protect rental housing like Woodlands Park, which was recently purchased by rental housing developer Edgar Development. And it could have even more input if the owners apply for any changes to the land use. “Existing policies… would also enable council to control the process to ensure existing residents are not displaced,” McLellan said. At council’s request, McLellan said staff will continue to look at ways to create incentives for new rental units as well as research how best to apply the power municipalities have been given to zone for multi-residential rental housing.

BC Liberals’ meddling in BC Hydro is costing us all

Last Week

Even out of power, BC Liberals taking plenty of criticism BURNABY NOW @BurnabyNow_News

T

he BC Liberals are currently not in government, so it’s weird how the party could have had such a bad stretch recently. Normally, it’s the party in power that suffers political misfortunes. The BC Liberals took a hit Feb. 12 when one of their MLAs, Linda Reid, was replaced as assistant deputy speaker of the B.C. legislature by Coquitlam-Burke Mountain’s Joan Isaacs. Reid’s role became contentious after a report was released by speaker Darryl Plecas in January that looked

into spending by two highlevel legislative employees and raised questions about expense reports and a missing investigation into a retirement allowance that allegedly happened under Reid’s watch. Reid’s own travel expenses were also brought into question. She has denied any wrongdoing. Things got worse on Valentine’s Day, when a report commissioned by the provincial government said BC Hydro customers will pay $16 billion over the next two decades because the Crown utility was pressured, under the BC Liberals, to sign long-term contracts with independent power producers — including those that had donated heavily to those same BC Liberals. Minister of Energy Michelle Mungall commissioned the report, which blames the previous BC Liberal government for creating the problem.

The report says the Libs manufactured an urgent need for electricity but restricted BC Hydro from producing it, forcing the utility to turn to private producers and sign lengthy contracts at inflated prices. Former B.C. Treasury Board director Ken Davidson authored the study, which estimates the cost to the average residential BC Hydro customer will amount to about $4,000 over the next 20 years, or about $200 per year. Davidson recommends all future energy purchases be made at market rates and finds BC Hydro must be allowed to meet supply obligations through a reasonable level of market trading rather than by generating all electricity within the province. Minister Mungall also concludes the long-term deals forced upon BC Hydro were mainly with run-of-river pro-

ducers, whose power is primarily available during spring run-off, when B.C. doesn’t require it. “B.C. didn’t benefit. BC Hydro customers didn’t benefit. A small number of well-placed independent power producers benefited, and customers were stuck with a 40-year payment plan,” Mungall said. Meddling with Crown corporations is nothing new to B.C. politics. BC Hydro and ICBC have been used as political pawns for decades — including when the BC NDP was in government. It’s time for the meddling to stop. Ratepayers are fed up with getting gouged with higher fees due to mismanagement stemming from political gamesmanship — such as pilfering revenues in order to balance the provincial budget.

Not enough $$ for trustees? Just quit

49 storeys would be out of place on Glen

The Editor, Re. “Trustees are not in same work category as city councillors” (Letters, The TriCity News, Feb. 7), “How do we know trustees worth pay?” (Letters, The Tri-City News, Feb. 14) and “Tri-Cities’ trustees have top pay in B.C.” (front page, The Tri-City News, Feb. 14). In his letter Dave Ginter, president of CUPE Local 56 stated: “Both Trustee Watkins and Port Coquitlam Trustee Michael Thomas should provide any type of information that puts them in the same category as city councillors.”

Another letter writer, Deb Losier of Port Coquitlam, suggested School District 43 trustees need to hand in a timesheet with details of what work they do and how many hours they spend doing it. And reporter Diane Strandberg of The Tri-City News informed readers: “School District 43 trustees will continue to be the highest paid school board politicians in B.C. But the elimination of a tax emption on 30% of the indemnity as a result of new federal tax rules will result in a net increase of about 2% according to school board

officials. The higher salary is due to hikes Tri-City councillors made in their pay so they wouldn’t be penalized by the loss of the 30% tax exemption.” I wonder how many taxpayers have a 30% tax-free income. What about the shameful free trips to China? How many retirees have a pension increase of 2%? If School District 43’s trustees believe they are not paid enough, they should resign and find work that pays them better. It is as simple as that. Marta Posilovic, Coquitlam

A proposal from Onni, if approved by Coquitlam council, would see towers of 49, 45 and 25 storeys built at Pinetree Way and Glen Drive. ONNI ILLUSTRATION

The Editor, Re. “49 storeys on Glen Drive?” (The Tri-City News, Feb. 7). It is most unfortunate those elected to city council permit developers to decide what is built in an area. A 49-storey highrise on Glen Drive is not appropriate in the area. A development in keeping with the buildings on Glen, Primrose Lane and Westwood Street would be much more suitable there. The extreme towers near Brentwood in Burnaby ruined the area — please take heed. E. Chisholm, Coquitlam

Donate, shop at biannual sale of sports equipment KidSport Tri-Cities helps with costs for low-income families Mario Bartel mbartel@tricitynews.com

You may not think flying a kite is a sport but someone might. That’s why a large, bright red kite in the shape of a phoenix will be amongst the hundreds of items up for grabs at KidSport Tri-Cities’ biannual used sporting equipment sale, which will be held March 9 at Riverside secondary school in Port Coquitlam. Chris Wilson, who has organized 23 such sales since they first began in 2007, said he has seen all manner of gear come in through the donation boxes and go out the gym doors, from traditional equipment like hockey skates and soccer balls to cricket bats, hip waders, tap dancing shoes and even a unicycle. “Just about anything people might consider sporting goods, we’ve got it,” Wilson, who’s also a Coquitlam city councillor, told The Tri-City News. He said managing the donations and working the floor on sale day have given him an appreciation of the diversity of sports in the Tri-Cities as

well as a glimpse into sporting trends. For instance, Inline skates were a plentiful item in the early years as people cast off their 1990s items but now they’re a rarer find, he said. The variety of equipment at the sale also makes it more inviting for people to be adventurous about their sporting choices because the financial commitment can be so low, Wilson said. A person curious about fly fishing might not be so enthused about shelling out $300 for a rod and reel but if they can be acquired at the sale for $25, they might actually give it a shot. “It’s awesome so many people are looking to get active and try new things,” Wilson said. “It just makes the sale that much more interesting.” • This year’s spring sale will be held Saturday, March 9 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Riverside secondary school (2215 Reeve St., Port Coquitlam). All proceeds from the sale go to KidSport Tri-Cities, which provides financial assistance for families to get their kids involved in sports. Items to be donated for the sale can be dropped off at bins located at the PoCo and Port Moody rec complexes as well as Coquitlam’s Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex through noon March 8. For more information, go to www. kidsporttricities.ca.

Sign stations are set Grant GranGer ggranger@tricitynews.com

Coquitlam hopes it has a solution to tidy up community signs at the designated intersections where they are posted. Council has given the green light to installing fixed frames that would allow community organizations to slide four-by-four foot signs into them at the six locations the city has set aside for the signs. The spots were approved in 2013 but, last year, Coquitlam’s sports advisory committee asked the city to look at providing fixed-frame signage because the sign sites can look disorganized. But tidying them up might come at the cost of convenience for the organizations. “Ultimately, there is a trade-off between the cleanliness of the sites, and the flexibility for groups to post signs; the more flexibility there is, the higher the potential for unsightliness,” said a report to council. Chris Wilson, the organizer KidSport used sporting equipment sale, says there will be gear for most every athletic and recreational pursuit at this year’s event, which is being held March 9 at Riverside secondary school in Port Coquitlam.

Health hiring spree in the Tri-Cities Three primary care networks to be established in Tri-Cities Diane StranDBerG dstrandberg@tricitynews.com Stefan laBBé slabbe@tricitynews.com

Dozens of new doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners will be hired in the TriCities and New Westminster to improve access to health care — especially for pregnant women, frail elderly and people with substance use issues — B.C.’s health minister said Sunday. At a press conference in Port Moody before an audience of health care officials and politi-

healTh Min. adRian dix

cians, Adrian Dix pledged a recruitment drive to hire 65 health care professionals over the next three years, with an annual funding boost of $12 million once everyone’s in place.

The establishment of primary care networks — three in the Tri-Cities and one in New Westminster— is expected to provide health care to 40,000 people who don’t have a family doctor. “Having access to a nurse practitioner or family doctor who knows you and is going to provide care over time for you is number one and very important,” Dix told the crowd. The recruitment drive will see 46 people hired in the Tri-Cities, including dozens of physicians, nurse practitioners (who can diagnose and provide prescriptions) and registered nurses as well as clinical pharmacists. Kwikwetlem First Nation will also receive access to health care support on reserve in

ways that are culturally sensitive. Under the new system, the Tri-Cities will be broken up into three primary care networks, with physicians having access to services for their patients. Dix said the creation of primary care networks will fill important gaps. For example, there are currently thousands of people without a doctor: 32% of women in need of maternity and post natal services, 24% of people with severe mental health and substance abuse challenges and 12% of people who are frail or have chronic illnesses. “This is the most important announcement I’ll make as minister of health,” he said.

“It’s a true breakthrough of significance in our primary health care system.” According to a press release, the establishment of primary care networks will ensure mothers and babies born in the region and seniors with complex care needs will be attached to a primary care provider without having to use a walk-in clinic or emergency department. In addition, people in need of mental health supports will have better access to the right care from the right provider with improved connection to specialized services provided by health authorities. “By integrating mental health and substance use services into primary care, [we’re saying] mental health

and addictions issues are health issues — period,” said Judy Darcy, minister of mental health and addictions, noting that 25% of youths in Fraser Northwest with a severe mental health and substance use diagnosis do not have access to a GP. Networks will fund up to five full-time clinical counsellors to provide rapid access to mental health and substance abuse services seven days a week, she said. As well, the new health care officials will work extended hours, including early mornings, evenings and weekends, patients will get same-day service for urgent care, and advice and information may also be provided virtually, such as online or via text and email.

Dev’t. done right can be ‘fire break’ continued from page

For example, a 21-lot subdivision proposed for the far reaches of northeast Coquitlam will be required to have a wildfire interface permit if it is to receive final approval. Located next to a dense forest on the edge of the Partington Creek neighbourhood, the Wesbild Holdings project will be built with noncombustible roofing, siding and decks, and will have restrictions on the types of landscaping that can be planted. “If you do it right, it’s like cutting a fire break,” Coquitlam Coun. Craig Hodge told The Tri-City News after the project came up for first reading at a council meeting in December. He noted the damage caused by last year’s wildfires in southern California. “I get they have different conditions down there, but with the impact of global warming we have to be prepared here,” said the Burke Mountain resident. “Our summers are getting drier and lasting longer.” Jim McIntyre, Coquitlam’s general manager of planning

And he noted similar interface permits will be required for developers moving into northwest Burke Mountain between Coast Meridian Road and the Coquitlam River. “You need some forethought to plan for that edge,” he said.

ON THE WATERFRONT

But wildland-urban interfaces are not the only areas where planners and policy makers will need to make better land use decisions as a result of climate change, according to SFU’s Boston. The provincial government anticipates sea level rise will increase one metre by 2100 and two metres by 2200,

meaning cities will have to be cognizant of how urbanization occurs near creeks, rivers and oceans, he said. Port Moody is one community with long-term plans involving increased waterfront development. But Mary De Paoli, the city’s manager of policy planning, said because the municipality is located on a protected inlet, it does not have the same issues as places like Vancouver or Richmond, which face open ocean. (White Rock, for example, recently saw the collapse of a section of its famed pier during the Dec. 20 windstorm and that is expected to cost $6 million to replace.) Still, De Paoli said “sustainability and climate change planning” is incorporated into the city’s waterfront vision, and is considered during the development of all oceanfront sites. Port Moody has also made

changes to how it regulates development near creeks and waterways, she said, noting the city recently updated its zoning bylaw to establish riparian transition areas and to predesignate streamside setbacks for all tributaries. De Paoli said these changes will “better ensure that areas are resilient over the long term and to better manage integration between the protected riparian area and the upland development.” Each community has its own unique issues and will have to tackle climate change adaptation in its own way, said Boston. He added that an oceanfront municipality like Port Moody likely won’t have the same issues as a riverside community like Port Coquitlam but every city needs to be proactive when it comes to taking climate change into account when making land use decisions. “Different cities will have different risks,” Boston said. “Every municipality in B.C. should be putting in place an adaptation plan.” – with files from Grant Granger

Talk about climate change next week in Port Moody Climate change likely means more than the occasional seasonal flooding of the Shorelline Trail in Port Moody. Residents of the city can find out just what some of those impacts might be at a special Climate Change Dialogue to be held next Wednesday from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the Inlet Theatre (100 Newport Dr.). The event, which is being put on by the city as well as Port Moody Public Library, will feature local experts like: Christine Callihoo, a senior land use and community planner for Resilience Environmental Solutions; Ralph Well, the community energy manager at the University of British Columbia; and Laura Sampliner, the city’s sustainability and energy coordinator. They’ll speak about how Port Moody could be affected by climate change as well as ways residents can reduce their carbon footprint and make the city more resilient to changes in the climate. The free event is also the beginning of Port Moody’s initiative to formulate a community-wide strategy for adapting to and dealing with the effects of climate change that will also include consultation with the public. To register for the March 6 dialogue, call Port Moody Public Library at 604-469-4577. To learn more about the city climate change action plan, go to www.portmoody. ca/climateaction.

TRI-CITY BUSINESS

Mompreneur honourees aim to serve women just like themselves Three Tri-City women are up for national business awards JaNIS ClEUgh jcleugh@tricitynews.com

Three Tri-City women are up for national recognition this weekend for their momfriendly businesses. Coquitlam’s Wendy Armbruster Bell is a finalist in the excellence category of the 2019 Mompreneur Awards for her pump bras. And Port Coquitlam residents Yvonne Yua of World Financial Group and Drupti Glowinlowski of Bold Looks are battling for a merit prize. The winners will be announced Saturday at the seventh annual National Mompreneurs Conference, held in Toronto during International Women’s Day Weekend. The trio is among 28 women selected by Mompreneur Showcase Group, a network of 18,000 members that aims to support, educate and empower female entrepreneurs in Canada. Mom-of-two Armbruster Bell, who faces six other competitors in her category, started her firm 14 years ago while freelancing in the apparel industry. Seeing a need to pump breast milk — a task that can take up to 45 minutes per session, several times a day — while still working, Armbruster Bell came up with a fabric bra that allowed her to keep her hands free. At the time of her design, “there were a couple of products available but they were expensive and had bad

reviews,” she recalled. “As an apparel designer, I was not impressed with the functionality of them.” Through her fashion industry connections, Armbruster Bell was able to open a factory in Vancouver for “some passive income.” Her business boomed. Soon, she was dedicated full time to Snugabell (a name that combines her kids’ word for “hugs” and her surname), stitching up pretty fabric bras for new moms nursing their newborns. Today, Armbruster Bell has sold about 150,000 bras locally through retailers such as Baby’s World and online but most of her bras go to the United States, where — depending on the employer — maternity leave is limited. Snugabell also employs five women to handle administration, shipping, quality control, marketing and production. “Our mission is to empower

moms in their fourth trimester,” she said. Armbruster Bell said she’s pleased to be a Mompreneur finalist because “it’s a chance for me to raise the awareness for these types of products. No one wants to talk about it because breastfeeding is a taboo subject but a lot of women are suffering out there, trying to make everything work at home and at their job.”

As for Yua, who immigrated from Malaysia in 1993, she teaches financial literacy in women’s shelters and other organizations helping women to get back into the workforce. And Glowinlowski’s business, Bold Looks, is a beauty and personal care business she founded to help women feel confident by enhancing their natural beauty.

Cent. grad gets inspired by the music of Joni Mitchell Concert ‘reimagines’ her songs with modern arrangements janis cleugh jcleugh@tricitynews.com

Scott Perrie is thinking a lot these days about the lyrics from Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi. Though the Canadian folk singer-songwriter composed the catchy tune half a century ago, her words about environmental sustainability still ring true: Development continues to take over nature, food continues to be produced with chemicals and big money always wins. A Centennial secondary graduate, Perrie has sung the song many times since he was cast in 2017 in the Firehall Arts Centre’s production of The Circle Game: Reimagining the Music of Joni Mitchell — now on tour around the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island and includes a stop next week at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre. “I get so fired up when I sing it,” Perrie told The Tri-City News last week, “because it’s still so relevant. There’s deforestation. We’re losing our bees. How did we get into this mess?” Created and directed by Andrew Cohen and Anna

Kuman, Circle Game features six musicians highlighting contemporary takes on 30 of Mitchell’s songs such as Free Man in Paris, River, California and A Case of You.

Each actor — Perrie, Samantha Bourque, Kimmy Choi, David Z. Cohen, Benjamin Millman and Adriana Ravalli — plays a number of instruments and,

together, they weave a tale about love, activism and other themes by communicating only through Mitchell’s music. Perrie said he became familiar with Mitchell’s voice at

a young age, while growing up in Coquitlam. His parents had her albums and, when he left home, Perrie took their vinyls and record player. Over the years, “I certainly learned the depths of her music and lyrics, and the beautiful way in which she sees the world,” Perrie said. But it’s Big Yellow Taxi that haunts him. Last year, the song inspired Perrie and his wife, Leora Joy, to pen a tune about the environment. The couple, who go under the band name Winsome Kind, are now in the process of recording Contemplation — a song they hope to release on Earth Day, April 22. Like Mitchell, “we want to make music that’s lasting and relevant, and say something important,” he said, adding, “The idea for our Earth Day song is to speak about how much the world has changed in 30 or 35 years and to question the path that we’re on. There’s so much riding on the decisions we make today and how we’re going to leave this planet.” Tickets for Circle Game: Reimagining the Music of Joni Mitchell, by the Arts Club Theatre Company On Tour, are $15 to $45. It runs March 5 to 9 at ECC (1205 Pinetree Way). Call 604-927-6555 or visit evergreenculturalcentre.ca.

Taylight Brewing, which opened last summer across from Peace Park, will have a Golden Grahams Braggot (mead and beer fermented together, with a box of Golden Grahams cereal dashed into the mash) featured in the Quirky corner. Organizers say the PoCo brewery will also serve its Sour Soother Ale, with flavours of sour keys candy.

Intoxicated by the Prairie air Saskatoon artist to show her work for first time in Metro janis cleugh jcleugh@tricitynews.com

Amalie Atkins is a Prairie girl at heart. After graduating from the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, Atkins and her husband — both Manitoba natives — moved to Saskatchewan. Their stint was only supposed to last 10 months but the crisp air kept the couple planted for the next 15 years. Saskatoon has fed them creatively, too, with its rich arts community. And the province has been generous as well with its funding: the Saskatchewan Arts Board is the oldest of its kind in the country and it has the Saskatchewan Film Pool, which granted Atkins money for her first film. Saturday, at the Art Gallery at Evergreen in Coquitlam, Atkins will show dreamlike

landscapes of her adopted home in her latest film/photo installation titled where the hour floats. It will be the first time Atkins will have exhibited in Metro Vancouver. This week, The Tri-City News caught up with Atkins as she travelled to B.C.: Where has the display been seen before? This is the first time this ex-

hibition has shown anywhere but I have been working on different aspects of the work for a long time. The work consists of series of films, photographs and installations. What is a cinematic fable? Somebody else came up with this term but I think they meant the films consider aspects of traditional cinema such as composition but are not a straightforward narra-

tive. I don’t necessarily agree with the term fable because fables generally have a clear lesson. Where did you get the idea for this display? The work is always building and growing. Every film or photograph relates to the others in some way and every time the work shows, it may tell a slightly different version of a story depending on what

A23

is included. In this case, [the Evergreen’s] Katherine Dennis curated the selections. Why only female roles? The story has many layers. This project looks at matriarchy and a female perspective. Some of the ideas emerged from relationships with the women in my family. My sister, mother, aunts and grandmother influenced the actions, costumes and story. How do you expect the reaction in Metro Vancouver to compare with a Prairie audience?   There are many people with a Prairie connection living in Metro Vancouver and they may feel a familiarity with the characters and landscape. For those not connected to the Prairies, perhaps seeing open rural unpopulated spaces will be a welcome sight.   The public can meet Amalie Atkins for a tour of her solo show in the Art Gallery at Evergreen (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam) at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 2. The opening reception is from 3 to 5 p.m. Call 604-927-6555 or visit evergreenculturalcentre.ca.

Like Tickle Me Teal (left), each canvas has a life of its own, he said, highlighting abstract shapes, textures, brush strokes and hues. And each piece captures a specific time: a fleeting moment or a past experience.

Sara grahaM arts notes

Port Moody has its first resident staff artist. Sara Graham, who works at city hall in the cultural services division, started her 18-month residency last December. Speaking at the Feb. 12 meeting, Graham told council she looks forward to integrating public art with new infrastructure projects. Currently, she has a public piece along the Fraser River; the artwork was commissioned by the city of Richmond. The Ontario native has a bachelor of fine arts degree from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and a master’s degree from the University of Guelph.

to the public. It continues at 7 p.m. with Giant Little Ones (starring Kyle MacLachlan of Sex and the City) about a boys’ friendship and, at 9 p.m., there’s Genesis — a film nominated for Best Motion Picture at this year’s Canadian Screen Awards. Finally, the fest ends on March 10 with the western Canadian premiere of Ghost Town Anthology by the famed director Denis Coté; to date, it’s only been shown in Montreal and Berlin. Society president Connie Smith told The Tri-City News, which is sponsoring the event, there’ll be a short Canadian film before each feature. The films were selected by a four-person committee made up of Smith, Josh Hamm, Josh Cabrita and Greg Hall. Meanwhile, Smith said the team is already working on the retrospective program for its 20th annual film fest, in 2020. Admission is $7 per film at the Inlet Theatre (100 Newport Dr.) plus a $5 society membership. A presale of tickets is on Saturday, March 2 from 2 to 5 p.m., at city hall. Visit pmfilm.ca.

KING

Human destruction of the planet. Chinese immigration. Perseverance and peer pressure. These are some of the themes in this year’s Port Moody Canadian Film Festival, running March 7 to 10 in the Inlet Theatre at Port Moody city hall. Hosted by the Port Moody Film Society, the festival puts the spotlight on six works created in Canada and, in one instance, opens the door to discussions with a director. Jennifer Baichwal will fly from Toronto to Port Moody — courtesy of the Toronto International Film Festival — to talk about Anthropocene: The Human Epoch, a documentary that launches the festival next Thursday. In her 87-minute flick that was co-directed by Nicholas de Pencier and photographer Edward Burtynsky, Baichwal lays out a case for how pollution is clogging our landscapes. Meditation Park, by Vancouver director Mina Shum, features scenes from Chinatown and stars Sandra Oh (Grey’s Anatomy) as the daughter of a Chinese immigrant who finds independence after years of being a dutiful housewife. It runs on March 8 at 7 p.m. while, at 9:30 p.m., are Spice It Up and the 34-minute long La Cartographe. Saturday’s lineup starts at 4:30 p.m. with a shorts program provided by the Vancouver International Film Festival; viewing is free

Take a moonlight walk & fight cancer Annual Coq. Relay for Life is rebooted as a shorter event Grant GranGer ggranger@tricitynews.com

C

andice Sifert was passionate about the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life held annually at Coquitlam’s Percy Perry Stadium for 27 years. She had reason to be. When she was 26, she lost her 49-year-old mother to breast cancer. A dear friend, Robin Poussard of Port Coquitlam, died of brain cancer. So she joined in. “She was a really dear friend,� Sifert said of Poussard, “and all of us wanted to show support to her and we thought it was a good way to do it all of us together. She was a beautiful soul.� Then, a few years ago, Sifert, whose father-in-law also died from cancer, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. That has gone away, thanks to the treatments she underwent, but her enthusiasm for fundraising for cancer society hasn’t. “I’ve lost too many people,� said Sifert. “It’s such an emotional time but you need that support. I get very energized when I’m participating.� But even she knew the event needed a makeover. In 2011, the 12-hour event raised close to $500,000. By

Cancer survivor Candice Sifert laces up her runners at Lafarge Lake for the Moonlight Walk for Cancer on June 1. Grant GranGer/the tri-City news

2015, the dollars collected had dwindled to less than half at just over $230,000. The society solicited feedback on why so few people were participating. Society spokesperson Nester Chen said many thought it was a 24-hour relay and that even though the event actually took half that time, 12 hours was still too long of a time commitment. This year, organizers have

reduced it to four hours (from 6 to 10 p.m.) and taken the most powerful part of the event, the final lap, and made it the star of the show. It has also been rebranded as the Moonlight Walk for Cancer and moved to Lafarge Lake on June 1. �I was OK with the old one and I am passionate about the 12 hours, but I do agree with listening [to the feedback]. Most people preferred a shorter time,� said Sifert, who joined

the organizing committee just before receiving her diagnosis. “The final lap was the most powerful‌ Candles are lit and the silence of everybody together walking is so powerful‌ always tell everybody if you don’t come for the whole day, if you come for the last lap, you’ll come back every year. “The track made it feel more like the relay where the lake is going to feel more like family, community. You’re here with

people who are supportive.� The Relay for Life in Coquitlam was the first of its kind in Canada. “It’s something we definitely don’t want to see go away,� said Sifert, whose 16-year-old daughter MacKenna joined the organizing committee two years ago. “I’m hopeful. I don’t want my daughter to live through what I did at 26 years old. Our family’s been through a lot and I don’t want other families to

go through that and for her to grow up with that.â€? But she worries. Since her mother died at the age of 49 and she’s 47, already having survived a bout with cancer. “I’m in a scary stretch,â€? she said, though she’s optimistic. “Moonlight Walk for Hope, that’s what we’re all here for, hope. That’s perfect.â€? • To register a team online go to www.cancer.ca/moonlightwalkforcancer.

CHAMBER NEWS

BC BUDGET EFFECTS WILL BE CLEAR IN THE NEXT FEW YEARS The BC Budget 2019 was tabled last week in Victoria. It seems to build on the province’s previous budget by redoubling its efforts to tackle affordability in the province. The Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce welcomes investments in housing and childcare, including the new Enhanced Child Opportunity Benefit that will replace the existing Early Childhood Tax Benefit. However, we continue to be very concerned that the business community is being left to foot the bill for new spending. The BC Chamber has determined that small and medium enterprises will be facing an additional $5 billion of cumulative costs over the next three years. That being said, it is important to highlight that affordability has become a business issue too. In our May 2018 Policy Survey, our members identified Chief Executive Officer affordability in the areas of housing and childcare among the top three issues of concern. As such, we support the government’s goals in their housing strategy Homes for BC, which includes much needed investment in rental, modular, and social housing. It should be noted that Municipal governments have a role to play when it coming to the housing shortage by streamlining the process to get more product on the market sooner. The province will also be investing $1.3 billion over three years to make child care more affordable and accessible, as well as introducing the Enhanced Child Opportunity Benefit. Michael Hind

The progress on affordability has come at the expense of our members’ other two major concerns: taxes and increasing costs of doing business. The Employer Health Tax, an increasing carbon tax, a rising minimum wage, and climbing corporate tax rates will begin to stifle growth, especially for small- and medium-sized enterprises. Coupling these tax increases with potential changes to the BC Labour Relations Code and Employment Standards Act, businesses are facing mounting costs from a number of areas in 2019. The BC Chamber’s recent 2018-19 Collective Perspective Report revealed 80% of BC businesses feel the cost of doing business in BC has worsened in the last year, and one in two owner-operators report their confidence in BC’s economy has declined in the last 12 months.

Among our members there is growing talk and frustration of the cumulative burden posed by incremental cost increases in a number of areas. A few positives for business are including a cluster of investments around the new CleanBC initiative. It will includes incentives for medium-and heavy-duty vehicle conversion, money for light-duty fleets to adopt zero-emission vehicles, and for industrial operations to reduce GHG emissions over three years, which will help make BC’s liquefied natural gas industry the cleanest in the world. Additionally, a number of enhancements to the Small Business Venture Capital Tax Credit Program will help new startups get funding and achieve commercialization faster. The 2019 budget remains balanced but is fueled by business that will eventually be a drag on the economy in the long run if we are not very careful. The budget provides investments to tackle affordability issues and offer relief for low and middle-income families. Nevertheless, businesses can rightfully wonder how the province plans to improve BC's investment and business climate and keep us competitive in the years to come to help drive our economy forward with strength.

Keep it fresh during winter

D

uring the cold winter months, it can be hard to find fresh, locally grown food. While the bounty is nowhere near what it is in July and August, the market still provides us with options. Let’s have a look at what there is in abundance. Forstbauer Farms has beets, lots of beets. If you are not fan, perhaps it is just because you have never had good, fresh beets. I know I wasn’t until I tried them. When I was growing up, my mom made pickled beets, which is why I wouldn’t eat them. Ever. It has only taken me 50-plus years to realize there is more to beets than that. And while I will never be a fan of borscht, roasted, caramelized beets in a salad of greens and feta is aces in my books. Beets can be eaten cooked, raw and (for those so inclined) pickled. The entire vegetable can be eaten. The leaves are great sautéed in a bit of olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper, or served raw in a salad. A simple beet salad idea involves nothing more than steaming beets and slicing them about a quarter inch thick.

MARKET FRESH Karen Curtis

Lay them on a plate, top with crumbled cheese from Tesfa Farms, a bit of orange zest, some chopped nuts and a drizzle of honey from Vlad’s Apiary — simple and so delicious. You could even roast the beet slices if you wanted to. Switch things up with golden beets or the candy cane ones. On a side note, Tesfa Farms is new to the market and they raise water buffalo. They milk 30 water buffalo that give pure white milk that is 7.25% milk fat — excellent for making cheese. The milk is more digestible due to the protein casein A2 that is also found in goat milk. Most traditional cow milk is A1, which our bodies have a hard time digesting.

Potatoes are next on the list. Too numerous to count here, the uses for potatoes are amazing. They can be prepared as simply as boiled and served with butter and salt or as complicated as a Spanish tortilla. One of my favourite ways to prepare them is Hasselback style. Simply slice across a potato, cutting it into very thin slices without cutting through the potato (stop half an inch from the bottom). Soak it in ice cold water for an hour, remove from the water and pat it dry. Place it in a baking dish, drizzle it with a good olive oil and a sprinkling of salt and your favourite herbs, then bake in a 450 F oven until the potato is easily pierced with a knife.

You could also sprinkle some cheese on top toward the end of baking time. As for the nutritional aspect, potatoes are a surprisingly excellent source of vitamin C and have more potassium than a banana! Another vitamin C powerhouse is kale; four ounces of kale will give you 200% of your daily allowance. Crisp Organics have plenty on hand and as many as three types. You can do the easy kale thing and buy kale chips from The Raw Guy or you can make your own. Sautéed kale is wonderful, especially with some garlic and bacon. Add that to fried sweet potatoes and top it with a poached egg from Rockweld Farms or Central Park and you have the breakfast of champions! Take that Wheaties. We all need a bit of sweetness. Even in the winter you can get locally grown fruit. Mandair Farms bring their frozen blueberries, raspberries and strawberries every Sunday.

OVERNIGHT FRUITY FRENCH TOAST Try this great recipe that’s perfect to make up the night before and pop in the oven in the morning and uses great ingredients from several vendors. Thanks to wishesanddishes.com for the recipe inspiration. 12 slices day-old bread, cut into 1-inch cubes 2 8-oz. packages cream cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes 2 cups frozen blueberries or fruit mix 12 eggs, beaten 2 cups whole milk 1 tsp vanilla extract 1/3 cup maple syrup 1/2 cup white sugar 2 tbsp cornstarch 1 cup water 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries 1 tbsp butter Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish. Arrange half the bread cubes in the dish and top with cream cheese cubes. Sprinkle 1 cup blueberries over the cream cheese and top with remaining bread cubes. In a large mixing bowl, mix the eggs, milk, vanilla extract and syrup. Pour this mixture over the bread cubes. Press down the cubes a bit to soak them and make them French toast-like. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight. Remove the bread cube mixture from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Cover and bake 30 minutes. Uncover, and continue baking 25 to 30 minutes, until centre is firm and surface is lightly browned. Enjoy warm. In a medium saucepan, mix the sugar, cornstarch, and water. Bring to a boil. Stirring constantly, cook 3 to 4 minutes. Mix in the remaining 1 cup blueberries. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, until the blueberries begin to burst. Stir in the butter, and pour over the baked French toast. Enjoy!

Five Tri-City students took in $5,000 each this month from the Horatio Alger Association of Canada. The organization awarded 170 need-based scholarships to Canadian high school students who have overcome adversity and are seeking a university education. The School District 43 recipients are: Erynn Donahue and Jin Lee (Heritage Woods secondary); YoungJin Kim and Taisha Zivny (Centennial secondary); and Xian Kostyroko (Port Moody secondary). The average recipient maintains a grade of 89%, according to the charity that believes “hard work, honesty and determination can conquer all obstacles.”

The Volunteer Cancer Drivers Society, which operates in the Tri-Cities, reached a milestone last year. In December, after three years in service to cancer patients around Metro Vancouver, the organization clicked over the one-million mark for kilometres driven — and more than 62,000 hours in donated time by unpaid helpers. Spokesperson George Garrett said his group continues to look for assistance and is in need of drivers who can speak Punjabi or Hindi. Visit volunteercancerdrivers.ca. The society started on Feb. 29, 2016, to replace the previous service cancelled by the Canadian Cancer Society.

It’s the second year in a row the municipality clinched the title from Mediacorp, which listed maternity leave top-up, staff social events and retirement planning assistance as the reasons Coquitlam took a spot on the BC’s Top Employers guide for 2019. BC’s Top Employers is an annual competition run by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers; they also selected the district of North Vancouver and Vancouver for their B.C. list.

LITERACY & LIBRARIES

STEM, philosophy & good night’s sleep This feature, written by librarians with Coquitlam Public Library, Port Moody Public Library and Terry Fox Library in Port Coquitlam, is published each Thursday to highlight programs and happenings in the Tri-Cities’ three libraries.

BOOK OF THE WEEK n Small Spaces by Katherine Arden n Reviewed by Corene Maret Brown, Port Moody Library

When the days are dark and the weather is cold, I love to read spooky stories — but not too spooky. Perfect for a scaredy-cat like me, Katherine Arden’s Small Spaces is a great read for kids eight and older who want some scare but also want to be able to sleep at night. Ollie is a bookworm. Ever since her mother died, she spends her time in her room reading to avoid her dad’s attempts to pretend that everything is OK. So when she stumbles across a woman in the forest threatening to throw an antique book in the river, she doesn’t hesitate. She ignores the woman’s ravings about The Smiling Man and a curse. Snatching away the book, she sprints home and starts to read. The story that unfolds is dark and mysterious. Long ago, there were two brothers. Tragically, the favourite brother disappears into the forest one night. Mad with grief, the mother begs the other son to bring back his brother at any cost. Wearily, the son agrees. They emerge, days later, alive but changed — not the carefree boys they used to be. They said The Smiling Man brought them both back but at a terrible price. The story haunts Ollie. Even a class trip to the local Smoke Hollow Farm, with its own tragic history, doesn’t interest her. But when the owner of the family farm is revealed to be the strange lady who wanted to destroy the book, Ollie starts to wonder if it was more than just fiction. This book is perfect for fans of Kenneth Oppel’s The Nest, Jonathan Auxier’s The Night Gardener and Tracey Baptiste’s The Jumbies.

CHILD CARE

days if it is successful. Among the things Coquitlam can do with the funds is document existing facilities and programs, assess current and anticipated needs, establish targets for the creation of new child care spaces, figure out how to boost the number of spaces and update city policies to encourage the development of more spaces. Without the grant, the city could still do some of the activities but they would be scaled

back, a report to council noted. There will be online surveys for parents and child care providers, an open house to talk about the issues, visits to local child care centres, interviews with community partners, a workshop and targeted interviews with parents. The target date for completing the strategy is early 2020 . The research is being done as School District 43 launches a task force to look into ways to promote more child care spaces in the region.

Spring is coming – and that means garage sale season There’s more frigid weather in the forecast but spring — and the urge to purge and clean that often comes with the new season — isn’t far away. Residents of Port Moody can take advantage of that community’s annual citywide garage sale April 20 to help them dispose of stuff they no longer need. No, that doesn’t mean city hall will be putting out its surplus office chairs and photocopiers by the curb on Newport Drive. But Port Moody residents

who register their own garage sale for that date on the city’s website, fill out an online form or pick up a form at city hall, will get their endeavour promoted for free on the city’s website as well as in an ad in The Tri-City News. To make it more convenient for bargain hunters, the city is also encouraging all sales on that day to start at 9 a.m. For more information, go to www.portmoody.ca/garagesale. All sales must be registered by 5 p.m. April 3.

BE A VOLUNTEER Be part of this great event by joining our amazing team of volunteers: • To contribute to your francophone community • To take part in this BC premier event and have fun • To meet new people • To taste and experience the unique francophone ambience!

Smart, liveable homes in an idyllic community Modern townhome and condo enclave offers fabulous homes that will appeal to families and downsizers

A

new condo and townhome community in the heart of Port Moody offers the perfect way to create an idyllic lifestyle – George by Marcon. George by Marcon comprises two contemporary, six-storey condo buildings comprising 179 homes, as well as an enclave of 73 modern townhouses, many of which back onto green space and the revitalized Dallas Creek.The community is in a prime location, steps from a brand new middle school and within a few blocks of the elemen-

tary and high schools. Reggie Tanzola, real estate advisor at Rennie and Associates Realty, says, “We’re just a couple of minutes’ walk from the West Coast Express and Port Moody SkyTrain station, so that’s a huge convenience.” The three- and four-bedroom townhomes, from just below 1,300 square feet to 1,650 square feet, are perfectly designed for functional family living. Each of the homes also has outdoor space in the form of a spacious patio, plus a balcony off the main floor great room, as well as a two-car garage. The modern architecture extends to the contemporary interiors, in which airy, open-concept spaces are complemented by clean-lined kitchens and bathrooms. A choice of three colour palettes allows buyers to customize their look and feel. And all

homes come with full-sized Samsung appliance packages and numerous smart and eco-friendly features. Ross & Company Interiors principal Charyle Ross explains, “All three colour schemes are timeless, but each speaks to different buyers. The warm taupe of the show suite is not too edgy, whereas the white, shaker-style scheme is a little more traditional, and the third scheme is edgier, with a darker cabinet combined with wood, and dark bathroom flooring. And what sets this project apart is the matte black hardware, and gorgeous lighting fixtures.” Although the condos are two years from completion, most have already been snapped up. But still available are 10 spacious, penthouse-level “terrace homes” with expansive roof terraces, some with more than 600 square feet of outdoor space. These

homes also have two parking spots and a private locker, as well as a gas hookup and hose faucet on the terrace. “The terrace homes are really going to appeal to downsizers, especially those who want to continue their outdoor entertaining,” says Tanzola. Residents of the two condo buildings also enjoy communal outdoor gardens with a BBQ area, plus a gear room outfitted with kayaks and paddleboards that they can take to the water at nearby Rocky Point Park. Buyers will have the peace of mind that comes with purchasing from an established local developer, with a track record of more than 11,000 quality homes in the region. “Marcon brings a really good reputation of delivering on time and at a very high quality,” adds Tanzola. Of the 73 townhomes, some will

be completed this summer, and others this fall and early next year. Two three-bedroom townhomes, just under 1,300 square feet, are still available for $879,900. Larger threebedroom homes start at $959,900, and four-beds start at $1,029,900. Of the condos, three of the 10 remaining terrace homes are around 850 square feet, with the larger penthouses going up to 1,307 square feet. Also available are two condos of more than 1,000 square feet, with two bedrooms and a den, plus a balcony and one parking spot. The condos start at $779,900, going up to $1,089,000 for the largest terrace homes.

WINE, WOMEN AND SPORT

Mentors can set the stage for a life in sport Speakers include triathlete, soccer and curling Olympians MARIO BARTEL mbartel@tricitynews.com

Anmore’s Michelle Reaume has completed 23 Ironman races. She’s played premier soccer, run ultramarathons and she finished in the top 10 at the New York City gran fondo — the first longdistance cycling race she entered. But, Reaume said, those athletic accomplishments might never have happened if she hadn’t had mentors come along at just the right moment to inspire and motivate her. On March 2, Reaume will speak about the value of mentorship, especially for female athletes, at the third annual Wine, Women and Sport evening to benefit the senior girls soccer program at Centennial secondary school in Coquitlam. More importantly the event is an opportunity for female athletes of all ages to be empowered by sport and to explore new opportunities in fitness, health and sport. Reaume said her own journey through sport really took hold when her track and field coach at her high school in Burnaby, Ken Taylor, tapped her on her shoulder as the team’s go-to athlete to accumulate points when its star

athlete was injured or unavailable. Reaume said Taylor taught her about the importance of doing something she loves. He encouraged her that finding happiness and well-being beyond the track would allow her to perform better when she laced up her spikes. And he showed her that even in the individual sport she had chosen at the time, heptathlon, there was still strength to be gleaned from her teammates. Reaume said finding a good

mentor can be a key ingredient to finding fulfillment and success in sport. She’s had several, including the middle school teacher who encouraged her to try out for the boys’ basketball team because the school didn’t have a girls team. Or Bert Sandie, who introduced her to triathlon and coached her to 25 of the gruelling races, of which she only failed to finish two. Reaume said as she’s gotten older, she’s been able to gain an increasing awareness and

appreciation for the role mentors have played in her own athletic endeavours. She said having those guiding forces can be especially critical to keep young women on the sporting track, as they now have so many distractions that can steal their attention and dedication. “You have to surround yourself with people who will give you support,” Reaume said, adding such a network is especially important for high school athletes as it’s those years that can lay the founda-

tion for a lifetime involvement with sport, even at a recreational level. “The achievements of a player, or team, live on long after the game is played,” she said. The experiences Reaume’s gained from sport, and the confidence it has given her, are now being repaid, as she herself takes on a mentorship role, whether it’s leading spin classes, teaching new members of the TCC Cycling Club — which she helped co-found four years ago — how to ride

safely in a group or even leading cyclists on wine tours in the Okanagan. It’s all about leading by example, she said. That even extended to her home life. Reaume said that when she used to take her daughter to dance classes, while other moms bided their time in the hallway reading, or chatting on their phone, she’d use the downtime to go for a run. Not only was it a chance to keep up her training, it also instilled in her daughter a work ethic and appreciation for being active at every opportunity. She’s now studying outdoor recreation and Capilano University. “Life is a sport,” Reaume said. “I don’t see it any other way.” • Wine, Women and Sport will be held March 2, 7 to 10 p.m. at Centennial secondary school in Coquitlam. Other featured speakers include Olympic soccer bronze medalist Brittany Timko and curler Kelley Law, who won a bronze medal for Canada at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah, and health and wellness coach Michelle Tremblay. Tickets are $40, plus a processing fee, and include a souvenir wine glass, the first glass of wine from Township 7 wine, and tapas.

Locals score goals, medals Alanya Davignon, of the Riverside Rapids, battles Royal Bay’s Hannah Cormode, for possession of the ball in the first half of their opening round game at the BC senior girls provincial AAA basketball championship, Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre. Riverside won the game, 108-49. Jessica Parker scored 31 points and Sammy Shields netted 29 to lead the Rapids, who advance to the quarter-final, today (Thursday) at 3:15 p.m. In the senior boys’ AAAA Fraser Valley championship final played last Sunday at the LEC, the Terry Fox Ravens lost to Holy Cross 83-63. The Ravens, Centennial Centaurs and Heritage Woods Kodiaks all qualified for their boys’ AAAA provincial championship tournament, which begins March 6. MARIO BARTEL/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Another athlete from the Tri-Cities will have to make room in her suitcase for a medal from the Canada Winter Games in Red Deer, Alb. Coquitlam speed skater Sherilyn Chung, who competes for the Port Coquitlam Lightning, was part of the team that won bronze in the women’s 3,000-metre relay in the short track event last

Friday at the Grant W. Harris Canada Games Centre. The BC team ascended the podium after a review disqualified the team from Ontario. Other notable results from the competition’s first week include: • Coquitlam biathlete Andre Secu failed in his quest for a fourth medal from the games, when he finished sixth in the 12.5 km. indi-

vidual race last Thursday. He previously won bronze medals in the 7.5 km male sprint, the 10 km male pursuit, as well as another bronze as part of the men’s 3x7.5 km relay race. • Coquitlam’s Ashley Robb scored a goal and added two assists, but her BC ringette team lost its bronze medal game to Manitoba, 6-4, last Friday.

Belief fuels Express hopes

Bears headed to provincials

Best-of-seven series against Prince George begins Friday

These Bears haven’t been hibernating. The Coquitlam Port Moody Bears U14A ringette team is heading to the provincial championships in Prince George with the momentum of a league championship and several top tournament finishes behind them. The Bears defeated the Port Coquitlam Storm 9-2 on Saturday at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex to add the league banner to gold medals they already won

MARIO BARTEL mbartel@tricitynews.com

Belief and creativity will be key if the Coquitlam Express are to have success against the Prince George Spruce Kings, in their opening-round series of the BC Hockey League playoffs that begins Friday in Prince George, says the team’s coach. Jason Fortier believes his charges have an abundance of both. He said the seeds were planted a year ago when he was able to squeak the Express into the post-season as the final qualifier after taking the reigns of the team halfway through an otherwise moribund campaign. “The kids were excited to change their history,” Fortier said. “They wanted to create something new.” They did just that. Coquitlam finished this season with 13 more wins, 27 more points, and climbed to third place in the Mainland division. Fortier said while the team’s belief in itself may have been bowed at various points during the 58-game regular season, it never broke. They snapped an eight-game losing

at Burnaby’s Ice Breaker and Richmond’s West Coast Classic tournaments earlier this season. They also finished second at the Fraser Valley Spirit of Winter tournament. Isabelle Beech scored four goals to lead the Bears to their latest conquest. Kylee White, Jessica Goller, Jemma Sangha, Meghan Hartley and Ava Taylor also scored. Kiera Deck scored both goals for the Storm. The provincial ringette championships will be held March 8 to 10.

streak that started on Jan. 25 by winning three of their last four games. In fact, Coquitlam’s last victory, a 7-0 pasting of the Surrey Eagles last Friday at South Surrey Arena, may have been the perfect launch into the team’s best-of-seven series against the Spruce Kings, Fortier said. The seven goals were the most the Express had scored since they netted eight against Alberni Valley on Jan. 13. “It’s always good to finish strong,” Fortier said. “We had battled some adversity, and now we’re in good spirits.”

To turn that winning feeling into actual wins, Fortier said the Express will look to their creativity and speed to overcome the Spruce Kings’ discipline and physicality. “Not many teams can match their work ethic,” Fortier said of the Spruce Kings, who finished the season with 22 points more than the Express, and just a point shy of the league-leading Chilliwack Chiefs. Though Coquitlam lost six of their eight games against the Spruce Kings in the regular season, Fortier points out one of those setbacks was in

overtime, another in a shootout. He said his team will have to work to break down Prince George’s rigid system that has been drilled into their players by constant repetition. “We’re still the underdog,” Fortier said. “If we believe, then we can beat any team in the league.” • The series opens in Prince George Friday and Saturday, then returns to Coquitlam for games three and four on Monday and Tuesday, 7:15 p.m. at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex. Game five, if necessary, is scheduled for next Friday in Prince George.

Metro Vancouver home sales to rebound over next two years: BCREA Home sales in Greater Vancouver, having seen the province’s biggest home sales decline last year, will bounce back the furthest over the next two years, according to a forecast released February 25 by the B.C. Real Estate Association (BCREA). The association predicted that residential sales in the region would rise 5.8 per cent in 2019 and 13.2 per cent in 2020. BCREA said that the mortgage stress test introduced January 2018 has dampened the market, but that buyers were getting accustomed to it and its effects would be gradually outweighed by rising demand. The report said, “Modest improvement in consumer demand is expected to unfold over the next two years as households further adjust to the mortgage stress test.” However, as has been evident over the past couple of years, price trends can lag those of sales activity. Greater Vancouver home prices

are expected to slide by 2.7 per cent this year, and only recover by one per cent in 2020, said the BCREA. The association predicted residential sales across the province would rise two per cent to 80,000 units this year. This follows a slow 2018 in which 78,345 homes traded hands on B.C.’s MLS®, which was 24.9 per cent lower than in 2017. BCREA also predicted provincial home sales to increase a further 6.9 per cent to 85,500 units in 2020. This would be a very normal level of activity, as the 10-year average for home sales in the province is 85,800 units. Little upward pressure on prices BCREA said that the slow market has seen a rise in the number of homes available for sale, which will keep prices across B.C. flat this year, although they are expected to increase more in 2020.

Continued from Page 52 The report said, “Market conditions are expected to provide little upward pressure on home prices this year, with the [provincial] average annual residential price forecast to remain essentially unchanged, albeit up 0.5 per cent to $716,100.” Cameron Muir, BCREA chief economist, said, “The negative shock to affordability and purchasing power created by the B20 stress test on mortgage borrowers is expected to continue constraining housing demand in the province this year.” However, he added, “Favourable demographics along with continuing strong performance of the BC economy is expected to underpin housing demand over the next two years.” Elsewhere in the province, Victoria and Vancouver Island are predicted to see lower home sales in 2019 and 2020 than in 2018, but prices are forecast to edge slightly upwards. The province’s hottest real estate market, BC Northern, is expected to continue its steady sales growth and see home prices spike more than 10 per cent this year.
