Make a wish & have a beer in PoMo Rotary Club installs a ‘Before I Die’ chalkboard at brewery Mario Bartel mbartel@tricitynews.com

Pinocchio wished upon a star. And beginning Saturday at 11 a.m., Port Moody residents and visitors will be able to wish upon a wall. Of a brewery. That’s when the city’s Rotary Club will unveil its new eightby 40-foot chalkboard affixed to the western outdoor wall of Moody Ales at 2601 Murray St. The wall is the brainchild of Claire Lambert, a local realtor and Rotarian, who said she hopes the community will embrace the wall and commit their wishes for personal achievement in chalk stored in a mailbox mounted nearby. Lambert said she was inspired by a similar effort by New Orleans-based artist Candy Chang, who implored people in that city to write their aspirations on a 41-foot chalkboard

Claire Lambert of Port Moody Rotary and Moody Ales’ Nick Andersen are hopeful the city’s new wishing wall — a giant chalkboard — on the exterior of the westernmost stop of Brewers Row will become a community gathering space that sparks conversations and words of inspiration. MARIO BARTEL/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

wall she painted on the side of an abandoned building. She said her “Before I Die” project was a way to work through the death of a person close to her by starting a conversation that reflects on death and life.

Since then, according to Chang’s website, more than 4,000 such walls have been erected in over 70 countries, from Iraq to South Africa. Lambert said her hopes for Port Moody’s new wishing wall

are more modest. She would like it to become a bit of a gathering space where people can share neighbourly, positive conversations sparked by the chalk messages. Lambert said writing aspira-

tions down can make them more real, maybe even serve as the motivator to follow through and realize them. But finding a wall big enough to fulfill her own dream — in an accessible location with

an owner willing to share the space with the community — proved elusive until she happened upon the western-most end of Brewers Row. Nick Andersen, the operations manager at Moody Ales, got on board immediately, saying that creating community has been one of the drivers of success for the city’s conglomeration of brewers. “We have a blank canvas,” Andersen said. “It’s an extension of our own ambition to be that community hotspot.” Lambert said the familyfriendly nature of Brewers Row makes it a perfect location for Port Moody’s wishing wall. “Port Moody is a City of the Arts and we have to do something with that,” she said. Andersen said he hopes those who write on the wall will embrace its intentions of positivity and accountability. “Positive attracts positive,” he said. “You attract what you put out in the world.” That’s why Lambert’s not worried the wall will become a billboard for graffiti. But if it does, brushes are also stored in the mailbox to wipe it clean.

$390M budget: more staff but no more counsellors DiaNe StraNDBerg dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

In the end, it was a slam dunk as School District 43 trustees passed the 2019/’20 school operating and capital budget without making any changes. The vote came despite impassioned pleas last week for more teachers, education assistants (EAs) and counsellors to

deal with increasing challenges in classrooms. Only a handful of spectators turned out for Tuesday’s board meeting, which saw trustees approve a $390-million budget. But for at least two members of the audience, the trustees’ speedy approval of a complex document was disappointing. “I don’t know why nothing has changed for EAs,” said Edward Ram, a parent who is

also a treasurer for the District Parent Advisory Council. Ram said he was hoping to see improvements in working conditions for EAs while Ken Christensen, president of the Coquitlam Teachers’ Association said he is unhappy with the lack of additional resources for the district’s Learning Inclusion Support Team, which helps kids with behavioural and other issues.

A number of other requests, including a teacher to support education programs at the Mossom Creek Hatchery, and help for parents needing laptops for the students was also not raised by trustees. There were, however, two trustees who opposed the budget — Port Moody’s Keith Watkins and Lisa Park — but only Watkins explained why. As he has in previous years,

Watkins opposed the setting aside of a surplus for future years, arguing the money is at risk if Victoria decides districts should no longer be allowed to carry forward surpluses. Other than pointing out the province has promised to make no changes to how it funds schools until 2021 and requesting explanations about how capital funds are accounted, trustees made no further com-

ments about the budget. The budget approved Tuesday means the district can continue to plan for schools for September, including the hiring of 50 additional full-time equivalent positions to free up administrators from teaching, improve programs for gifted students and add more staff for projected student enrolment growth and help for special needs students.

Coq. could open up more areas to child care facilities

City food truck trial starts at Town Centre Park

Gary McKenna gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Bylaw changes that would significantly expand the number of locations where daycare providers can operate in Coquitlam are going to a public hearing Monday evening. Andrew Merrill, manager of community planning, said the city wants to make it easier for child care facilities to locate in the municipality and not limit them to certain zones. “We want to reduce the unnecessary regulatory barriers,” he said. “We are allowing child care in more areas of the city than what is allowed today.” For example, under the current regulations, standalone daycare facilities are not permitted in the townhouse residential zone, something that will change if the bylaw amendment is approved by council. The city is also looking at altering the types of commercial zones where child care facilities are permitted. Currently, daycares are not allowed in smaller local commercial zones but are allowed in big-box, highway-oriented commercial areas. The proposed bylaw amendment

would reverse that, opening the door for facilities in less auto-dependent parts of the city closer to park amenities. “The idea is to make kids legal everywhere,” Merrill said. “Child care was not a permitted use in local commercial zones. Those zones are the types of commercial space that happens in residential neighbourhoods.” The proposed changes going to council Monday come as staff begin the yearlong process of developing a child care strategy for the city. Merrill said the zoning tweaks and the establishment of a consistent definition for child care were “easy early wins” that could be taken care of right away. “We don’t need to wait a year for the strategy to be done to remove those regulatory barriers,” he said. But the biggest hurdle Merrill foresees in increasing child care spaces in the city is making it affordable for working families, and funding from higher levels of government will be necessary. “This is about getting our municipal house in order so that we are ready for the federal and provincial government,” Merrill said.

Ice cream, donuts and even Japadogs to be in the park Gary McKenna gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Food trucks have started popping up at Coquitlam’s Town Centre Park and more could be on the way this weekend. The initiative is part of TCP Eats, a pilot project aimed at creating a food hub in the city’s busiest park. “We are hoping people will come and check it out,” said Kathleen Reinheimer, Coquitlam’s manager of parks. “We want more people thinking ‘I am in the park, is there something there I can grab for lunch.’” Port Moody’s Rocky Point Ice Cream intends to have a truck operating in the park every day (weather depending) for the next few months while other approved vendors include Cannoli King, Vick and Jas’s Kitchen, Japadog, Tornado Potatoes, Hugs by Mollies, Come Arepa, JerkShack and BC Taco. The carts will set up in Lot D off of Trevor Wingrove Way. While the food trucks will not commit to being in the park during specific times, they are active on social media and

A variety of food trucks are lined up for TCP Eats, a city of Coquitlam pilot project to see if there’s demand for food trucks in Town Centre Park. TRI-CITY NEWS FILE PHOTO

good at letting their customers know when and where they will be, Reinheimer said. “A part of the challenge is [food trucks] need to have a fairly solid crowd to have enough business to justify their time,” she said. “We are trying to figure out how we can fit into their down time so on a nice sunny day, they know they can come here if the weather is decent.” She added that the city will collect market data and gauge the community’s interest in

having more food options at Town Centre Park, likely reporting back to council at the end of the year. Several food trucks have already made their way to the park and interested vendors are encouraged to contact the city. Reinheimer said the program gives businesses as much flexibility as possible, allowing a licensed truck to operate in the park anytime between dawn and 11 p.m. “We didn’t want to give them any limitations,” she said.

“If someone has a breakfast sandwich cart, they could be there every morning.” The city is also trying to avoid duplicating menus. Reinheimer said it has already turned down a mini-donut vendor because another one, Hugs by Mollies, had already been approved. Food trucks interested in operating at Town Centre this summer can find more information on how to apply for a licence at coquitlam.ca/ tcpeats.

Drivers who travel an oftencongested part of Lougheed Highway in Port Coquitlam could see some relief in the next five years. This week, the city outlined its plans to six-lane the highway between Shaughnessy and Westwood streets — and replace the aging bridge over the Coquitlam River — to ease traffic congestion. If approved, the work, budgeted to cost $32.1 million, would tie into TransLink’s new Lougheed B-Line bus route; that service, which will transport rapid-transit riders from Maple Ridge to Coquitlam Central station, starts next year. Melony Burton, PoCo’s manager of infrastructure planning, told committee of council Tuesday the Shaughnessy-to-Westwood stretch of Lougheed is over capacity by about 25,000 cars a day. And it has become a pinch point during rush hour, with heavy volumes cited as a key factor in collisions: From 2013 to ’17, there were 1,131 motor vehicle crashes along the corridor, 19 of them involving cyclists and pedestrians. Widening the road to six

lanes — plus multi-use paths on each side — isn’t expected to involve major land acquisitions, Burton told the committee; although the landscaped centre median will be removed. As for the bridge, it’s in dire need of replacement, Burton said. The eastbound, steel side is 70 years old while the westbound concrete span is 45 years old; neither bridge could withstand a major earthquake. During construction — roadwork is scheduled for 2022, bridge replacement the following year — four

lanes will be open for traffic, said Forrest Smith, PoCo’s engineering and public works director. Six-laning that stretch is in the city’s 2013 Master Transportation Plan and, for the past two years, city staff have monitored the bridge for its condition and future needs, and made updates to improve safety levels. Now, they’ll consult with affected property owners and TransLink, ICBC and senior governments about the road and bridge designs and funding. While councillors agreed

the bridge needs to go, they also worried about the widening and moving the choke point further along Lougheed. “I think it’s going to be a traffic nightmare,” Coun. Steve Darling said. “We have got to fix this bridge,” Coun. Laura Dupont added. “I’m nervous to keep increasing roads and bridges to put more cars on the road.” Coun. Darrell Penner, who chaired Tuesday’s committee meeting, said he hopes senior governments step up to help with the construction costs. “At 55,000 trips a day, clearly that isn’t all us,” he said.

A former Port Coquitlam city worker will go to trial in December in connection with the theft of copper pipes from the municipality. Wednesday, lawyers set Dec. 19 and 20 for the trial of Harold Edward Lewis, who is charged with one count of theft under $5,000. Last summer, the 57-year-old PoCo resident was one of seven city employees in the engineering and public works department fired for allegedly stealing piping and selling it for scrap metal over a 10-year period. The estimated loss to the city was at least $75,000. Crown counsel is expected to call six witnesses at the trial, the justice of the peace was told. Ron Narayan, acting president for CUPE Local 498, of which the seven employees were members, told The TriCity News this week that arbitration dates are set for the end of June and July to dispute the dismissals.

Vagramov’s paid leave to be reviewed Acting mayors could cost the city an extra $53,440 for 2019

ONLINE COURT COVERAGE

mario Bartel mbartel@tricitynews.com

Port Moody council will review the paid leave it approved for Mayor Rob Vagramov while he fights a charge of sexual assault. At its meeting Tuesday, council voted to undertake the review at its next closed-door session, likely May 7 or 14. “It doesn’t mean there will be a change but it does mean there will be a discussion,” said the city’s current acting mayor, Coun. Meghan Lahti, adding council might have a better idea of how long Vagramov’s leave could last after a court appearance scheduled for today (Thursday) in Port Coquitlam provincial court. Vagramov is to answer a charge of sexual assault for an incident that is alleged to have occurred in Coquitlam in 2015. Lahti said the discussion about his leave could produce a range of results, from leaving things as they are to reducing what Vagramov is paid while he’s on leave to rescinding his pay altogether. “Council has the prerogative to do that,” she said, adding council will seek advice from city staff and its lawyers as it considers its course of action, and any decision will

5.4% tax hike planned Port Moody residents will have to wait a little longer to find out how much they have to pay in property taxes this year. Bylaws for the city’s five-year financial plan and to set property tax rates were removed from the agenda of Tuesday’s council meeting because “they weren’t ready yet,” said acting mayor Meghan Lahti. Lahti said the bylaws should return to council at its next meeting, scheduled for May 7. A report prepared for Tuesday’s meeting includes an estimated tax increase of 5.4%, or an average of $120 per household.

be made public. Vagramov, 26, became Port Moody’s youngest-ever mayor last October. He stepped away

from his position effective March 29, the day after the charge was filed following an investigation by a special prosecutor that was launched Dec. 17, 2018. Vagramov said at the time he needed time away from the mayor’s job to concentrate on fighting the charge, which he said is false. He continues to be paid his $111,833 annual salary. Coun. Zoe Royer, who suggested the review be undertaken sooner, rather than waiting as long as until the end of the year, as proposed by Coun. Diana Dilworth, said, “This is a matter that is very important to the people of Port Moody.” Dilworth said council

has “received a tremendous amount of input from our residents with regard to this issue.” There is currently no provincial legislation that forces elected officials facing criminal charges to take a leave. But resolutions endorsed by the Union of BC Municipalities last fall call for politicians to take a paid leave of absence from their position upon Crown approval of charges until the court process is complete, and to be removed from office if they’re convicted of a serious criminal offence. Royer said the issue of whether Vagramov should continue to receive his pay is especially important in the

MORE INFO ON THIS: tricitynews.com context of an anticipated 5.4% hike in Port Moody’s property taxes as well as a staff recommendation that council’s three acting mayors have their pay boosted to the same rate as the mayor’s position during each of their three-month terms. That recommendation, which could cost the city as much as $53,440 if Vagramov’s paid leave continues until the end of the year, was also endorsed unanimously by council on Tuesday. Angie Parnell, Port Moody’s general manager of corporate services, told council the mayoral role is “considered to be full-time work, if not more.”

Royer said she couldn’t disagree. “To do this job the way it’s intended to be done, it’s a 50-hour-a-week job,” she said. “The person in the acting role should be compensated in the way the mayor would be compensated.” Dilworth said each of the three councillors — Lahti, Hunter Madsen and Steve Milani — who were selected in a draw of names from a water glass, is “making sacrifices” to step up from their part-time roles on council for which they are paid $40,579 annually. “Compensating someone for the job they’re doing is the right thing to do,” she said.

THE TRI-CITY NEWS’ OPINION

W E E K LY O N L I N E P O L L

Road safety comes down to this: people before cars

Last Week

30 km/h speed limit on streets without centre lines needed THE TRI-CITY NEWS newsroom@tricitynews.com

K

udos to a Port Moody group that is trying to change the driving

culture. Port Moody Active Transportation Committee’s recommendations for more enforcement, warning beacons near busy crossings and separated bike lines deserve support. But perhaps the group should also be advocating for a 30 km/h speed limit on all residential streets without centre lines — the streets citizens use to get to school, shopping and parks, often by walking.

It’s time to change the culture and make safe driving, not convenience, the most important factor in getting around. A similar call to action was made in 2016 by provincial health officers in a road safety report that noted that 280 people are killed and another 9,000 are injured on B.C.’s public roads each year. We have heard of too many victims in the Tri-Cities to be complacent. And we agree with the health authorities that it’s time to change from the historical view that motor vehicle crash-related serious injuries are unfortunate but inevitable to one where safety is paramount. This could mean changing the Motor Vehicle Act to make 30 km/h — the survivable speed for cyclists and pedes-

trians struck by a car — the default limit. And cities don’t have to wait for the province to take action. In Vancouver, for instance, a city councillor is calling for the default to drop from the present 50 km/h for “local streets.” Why not here in the TriCities? Some might see it as politically dangerous to challenge the status quo but it should be a number one priority for councils everywhere. Locally, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody councils have the ability to change the way people drive by turning residential areas into bubble zones of safety with slower speed limits, traffic-calming measures and signage that force cars to slow down as they exit off arterial roads. Imagine if your neigh-

bourhood were like a gated community, except without the gate, where cars were subjugated and pedestrians and cyclists were boss? Could it be done? Could we take our car culture and radically re-order it to make safety over convenience the priority on side streets? Nobody will take this seriously until citizens make a stink. So far, a handful of Port Moody residents are and similar safety groups need to be established in other cities. Parents upset about speeding in school zones should be first to organize. The time for action is not in some distant future. We don’t need to accept that a dead child, cyclist or senior on our roads is a fact of life. It’s time to make a change, and it starts with this: people before cars.

VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN

DEVELOPMENT & TRAFFIC

Important stats

Ugly, ugly buildings

The Editor, The April 9 Port Moody council meeting saw four residents — women all — stand up at public input to talk about the National Prevention of Violence Against Women Week, which was April 14 to 20. Some shocking statistics were provided that I feel need to be broadcast again and again: • 50% of women in Canada have experienced sexual or physical violence. • More than half the women in B.C. have experienced sexual or physical violence since the age of 16 — that’s more than one million women in our province alone. (Are you standing in a mixed

The Editor, Re. “Enforce speed limits, don’t allow highrises” (Letters, The Tri-City News, April 11). Letter writer Brian Robinson is right about highrise buildings. Not only, as he says, do they mean more traffic on an already impossibly congested transportation grid but they dwarf old, familiar neighbourhoods into dark concrete canyons. They look awful, like Sovietera flats, like gigantic beached aircraft carriers plopped on what was once decent living space, deforming and polluting the natural landscape. They are notoriously adverse to community and family

group right now? Look around you. This statistic says that at least half the girls and women you see right now, are standing beside you right now, are talking to right now have experienced sexual or physical violence. Let’s take it even closer to home. In your extended family, how many girls and women are there — sisters, mother, grandmothers, aunts, cousins? Let’s say 20. Which 10 of those girls and women you love have experienced sexual or physical violence in their life? Don’t know?) • Every year in B.C., there are more than 60,000 sexual or physical assaults against women, almost all of them committed by men.

• One in three women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. Here is an answer to the “Don’t know?” question: Only 12% of sexual assaults against girls and women are reported to the police. There are many things we, as society, can do to change this narrative. One of them is just this: I see you. I believe you. I am here to support you. Please know help is available to any victim of violence. If you are in an immediate emergency, call 911. If you are looking for help and assistance VictimLinkBC (1-800563-0808) can connect to all available local resources. Laura Dick, Port Moody

MORE RED LIGHTS, PLEASE! The Editor, Today, taking my daughter to a movie in Coquitlam, we hit 12 of 17 red lights on the way. I understand how difficult a job it must be to manage traffic in the Lower Mainland. Still, I’m sure that if the city of Coquitlam put their brightest minds on the problem and made a concerted effort, it could configure the stoplights so that I get stopped at every single one of them next time, because at least then I would have a good story. Aaron Drake, Coquitlam life, and well known to isolate residents into small cramped spaces so detrimental to their mental health. They simply are not good places to live in spite of the evocative, Orwellian names given them by developers: BlueSky, Vista, etc.

Home affordability and scarcity are real problems. But surely our elected representatives can come up with better answers than these ugly behemoths. Peter Manning, Port Coquitlam

city budgeted $387,000 for its 160-vehicle fleet but ended up spending $420,000. In the 2019 budget, $390,000 has been allocated for fuel costs. “The amount budgeted for fuel and the actual amount spent on fuel in any given year can vary widely, and both are affected by a number of variables,” Rockwood said. “We look to reduce consumption with anti-idling policies and by replacing vehicles at the end of their useful lives with more fuel-efficient vehicles and electric or hybrid vehicles where appropriate.” The pump pain is not just being felt by municipalities. A Metro Vancouver spokesperson said that if fuel prices remain at $1.68 per litre for the year, the regional district will pay an additional $200,000 in 2019 fuel costs. Meanwhile, TransLink has so far managed to stay within its projected budget. According to Jill Drews, senior issues management advisor for Translink, the transit authority forecast an average gasoline price of $1.59 per litre and a diesel price of $1.50 for 2019. “So far this year, prices have been below that average,” she said in an email. Pump prices hit record levels last week, with some Metro Vancouver stations breaking the $1.75 mark. The rising cost of gasoline in the Lower Mainland is largely due to refinery outages in the U.S. shortening supply on the west coast, according to Dan McTeague, a petroleum analyst with gasbuddy. com. “Vancouver is unique in that it doesn’t have enough gasoline to provide its own needs,” he said from his Toronto office. “We rely on the Americans… When there is a problem south of the border, there is an even bigger problem for us.”

WREN

Tri-City municipalities and their large taxpayer-funded vehicle fleets are feeling the strain of rising Lower Mainland gas prices. While most cities have supply agreements that enable them to purchase fuel at a lower price than what the average motorist pays at the pump, the recent spike could blow projected cost estimates for 2019. “All things being equal, based on how we are currently trending, we are expecting to be over budget in this area,” said Farouk Zaba, Port Coquitlam’s manager of financial planning and systems. PoCo’s 2019 budget projected fuel costs would rise 2.2% over the 2018 average. Even after allocating $464,000 for its 138-vehicle fleet — $53,000 higher than last year — Zaba said the city may still come up short. While there are no specific contingency dollars set aside for higher-than-anticipated pump prices, he said, “The city has the ability to reallocate funds from one program to another as may be required.” Coquitlam is feeling a similar pinch. Brad Lofgren, the director of public works, said the city has made strides in reducing its consumption, mainly through the purchase of electric vehicles and by using its existing fleet more efficiently. But those efforts have only slowed down overall cost increases. For example, in 2016 Coquitlam spent $800,000 in fuel, a figure that jumped to $1 million in 2018, despite the fact the city used 30,000 fewer litres. The change “demonstrates the increased cost of fuel in just two years time,” Lofgren said. While it is too early in the year to get a good estimate of what the city will spend on its fleet in 2019, “I think it’s likely safe to say that our costs will be higher than last year,” he said. Paul Rockwood, Port Moody’s general manager of finance and technology, said estimating the cost of a commodity can be challenging. For example, last year the

Above: Cosimo Geracitano is in the final stages of completing his last painting, a fresco he will hang on the ceiling in the dining room of his Coquitlam home. He says he’s run out of space for new works. Below: The living room of Geracitano’s home is decorated with his replicas of paintings by some of the world’s greatest masters.

Painting masterpieces, he’s running out of space Cosimo Geracitano has slowly filled his Coquitlam home with his meticulously crafted replicas of famous paintings STORY: STEFAN LABBé slabbe@tricitynews.com PHOTOS: MARIO BARTEL mbartel@tricitynews.com

C

osimo Geracitano is a slight man with closely cropped grey hair, a neatly trimmed beard and watery, green eyes that betray a constant wonder of the beauty that surrounds him. His hands hold the precision of a draftsman and the ingenuity of an engineer. The Coquitlam man is an inveterate tinkerer, collector and dreamer, inspired as much by the windswept lines of a Rosso Corsa-red Ferrari as he is by the liberté, égalité and fraternité of the painting Lady Liberty. And, at 71, Geracitano has painted himself into a corner.

‘I PAINTED A SHIP’

Geracitano was born in the thousand-year-old, thousand-person town of Bivongi, Reggio Calabria, on the sole of Italy’s boot. From a young age, he had the keen sense of history of someone who grew up in a single-room house built on 700 years of continuous settlement, where “rooms piled up on top of each other.” Still, he told The Tri-City News, “I dreamed always of leaving.” The other thing that occupied his thoughts was painting. Join the conversation at facebook.com/tricitynews

His earliest memory of painting was on the stone wall of his house, high off the ground. “I leaned like this out a tiny balcony,” he says, arching over and miming paintbrush strokes. “I painted a ship.” By the time he was 19, Geracitano had finished school as a naval mechanic and began shuttling across the country in search of jobs. When he struggled to find work, his father mentioned there was a man in town offering papers to people with diplomas who wanted to move to Canada. “So I went to see this guy,” he says. “Finally, I got my dream to go on a vessel.” Geracitano landed at Halifax’s Pier 21 in 1967, soon settling in Toronto, though unable to speak a word of English. He got a job, fell in love, got married and had three children. By the time his oldest was seven, he had stopped painting. He started his one company, doing electric motor and generator repairs, then another: a car dealership selling exotic Lotuses, Alfa Romeos and Lamborghinis. “I got busy. I didn’t paint for 25 years.” By the late 1980s, the family got “tired of the snow,” picked up and moved west, settling in the Tri-Cities. Over the years, the thought of painting haunted him, until a decade ago, just after he retired, he pulled out his 25-year-old easel and paints, cracking open the seized tubes with pliers. “Inside, the paint was still good, so I started painting.”

SPECIAL HANDS

His return to painting started with a few originals, family portraits, a scene from a trip to Italy. But those early creations never seemed enough. see facing page

Bottom, from left: Geracitano also sculpts in marble and jade; a detail of his replica of Allegory of the Planets and Continents, the original of which was painted by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo in 1752, and what he says will be his last painting; Geracitano paints the names of all the artists whose works he’s reproduced on the leaves of an artificial tree.

‘I get inspired, take the brush & I can do anything’ continued from page

Late in his career, as his son took over his electric motor repair shop, Geracitano carried over his obsessive work ethic into his art, carving a 151-lb. book, The Stone of Hope, out of solid jade, a stone harder than steel. As his daughter wrote in a history of the sculpture: “The project consumed him and interfered with his every activity: eating, sleeping, driving.” He wrote down ideas at stoplights, Post-It notes littering the steering wheel and dashboard. The tools to carve such a jade book did not exist, so Geracitano built his own diamond-tipped saws, some blades as tall as a man. With precision, he cut, drilled, sanded and carved for thousands of hours until, from a single block, the likenesses of and quotations from Mahatma Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Mother Teresa rose from the pages in shallow relief, each page freed from the block along the arched jade bindings. “When I was a little kid, my mother told me that I have special hands, [that] I could be a surgeon or a professor,” he told The Tri-City News. “Now I know why. I can do those things that most people can’t.”

A HOME, A MUSEUM Perched on a sleepy side street on Westwood Plateau, Geracitano’s house is a tall, modern structure, unremarkable from the outside. But walk through the front door and you immediately find yourself in rooms with the hushed lighting of a museum. The living room reveals dozens of duplicates of masterpieces, a “best-of” stretching from the 1400s to the turn of the 20th century. In Raphael’s renaissance-era gift for Pope Leo X, St. Michael rises up towards the vaulted ceiling, vanquishing Satan with his spear. You catch fleeting glimpses of the Mona Lisa and The Girl with the Pearl Earring before your eyes are inevitably drawn upward, your neck cranking back so you can take in The Creation of Adam, Michelangelo’s inverted fresco from the Sistine Chapel. “You see this one here?” says Geracitano, waving to his version of Claude Lorrain’s 1641 Baroque interpretation of the Saint Ursula legend. “This one is 600 hours of work.” Over the last decade, Geracitano has produced 45 replicas of some of the most famous paintings in the world and, in the process, has turned his home into a private homage to some of the greatest artists Europe has ever known.

He has taken to leaving the lights on, each painting illuminated with special low-voltage tape. “Four o’clock [in the morning], I’m up,” he says. “I get inspired, take the brush and I can do anything.” Like The Stone of Hope before, the process of replicating masterworks of art is both labour-intensive and exacting. Every year, Geracitano travels to western art’s most famous museums: the Louvre in Paris, the Met in New York and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. He’ll sit for hours, examining every last detail before picking up the most expensive, detailed posters he can find. “Every little line, everything I do, I go with a magnifying glass and pick up every touch of paint or pencil. Line by line. It’s not simple,” he says. For some paintings, he has gone to museum websites, pulling up high-quality digital photographs and zooming in. For others, he’ll divide the digital copy into grids, printing off a series of 8½- 11-inch pages to assemble a forensic template. “I zoom in and what appears to be just a line, it’s people,” he added pointing to the rigging on one of Lorrain’s ships. see

‘I’m in the prime of my life’ continued from page

“It’s people climbing the ladder there. There are people everywhere, over 110 people in here. You don’t see them.” By mixing his own colours, Geracitano strives to capture what the originals looked like when they were finished — recreating but restoring at the same time. He studies the direction of each brush stroke and the texture it leaves on the canvas. While the original artists produced their works in moments of inspiration, Geracitano says it will take him months to replicate their genius. “When I like something — the more difficult, the better — I’ll find a way,” he says.

NO MORE SPACE

Now, he has to find some space, whether in his home — where he also keeps a 1987 Testarossa, which he calls “the poor man’s Ferrari” and which is housed in a garage adorned with an eight-foot tall, 16-footwide replica of Rosa Bonheur’s 1850 masterpiece, The Horse Fair — or his life. On a whim, Geracitano will move furniture from room to room transforming the dining room, kitchen or living room into a temporary studio. He often paints under his own replica portraits of Leonardo,

Raphael and Michelangelo, trying to channel their presence. “This is a way you can get close. For me, it’s getting this feeling, the vibration from the painting about the artist and the subject,” he says. Painting has also been a way for him to get closer to the culture he left behind in Italy, something he says he can talk about for hours. And over the last few years, Geracitano’s all-consuming approach to art has deepened. Since his wife passed away nearly four years ago, he has produced 20 paintings. Now, he has reached a tipping point: There is no room left on his walls. His 46th replica — the last, he says — took up nearly all the space in the dining room as he worked on it. He completed his exquisitely detailed replica of Giovanni Battista’s 1752 painting Allegory of the Planets and Continents over the Easter long weekend and installed it on the ceiling of his dining room. “I’ve been slowing down lately,” he says. “This is my last painting. It’s a big one, one of the most complicated.”

SLOWING DOWN?

But maybe it’s not his last. Earlier this year, he decided to play a prank with his girl-

friend, Mona, an interior designer and art collector. In 2017, Salvator Mundi — a painting of Jesus Christ attributed to Leonardo Da Vinci — fetched U.S. $450.3 million at auction. After the world’s most expensive painting mysteriously went missing last fall, Mona sent the National Post a photograph of Geracitano standing in front of his replica with a note reading, “Do you really want to know where the Salvator Mundi is?” A flurry of press coverage followed: The BBC, Inside Edition and the CBC all descended on Geracitano’s home to report on the former repair man and his vast collection of duplicates. Since then, Geracitano has received about a dozen requests for replicas from as far away as Scotland, Brazil and Australia. While the attention has been somewhat overwhelming, the timing may not work for Geracitano, who says he does a couple of commissions each year but he’s ready for a change. So while in one breath he says he’s slowing down, in another, he says, “You know, we want to have fun. We’re still young. We want to travel. We don’t want to paint everyday. “I’m only 71, I’m in the prime of my life.”

ECONOMIC SUMMIT: THE FUTURE IS 2020 The world is in a constant state of evolution, especially with the drastic changes accompanying the innovation revolution. We see the economy shifting, technology rapidly changing, and business models evolving with disrupters like artificial intelligence and driverless cars entering society. We want to support businesses in the Tri-Cities thrive by implementing new technologies. On Wednesday, May 8, the Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce is hosting our fifth annual Economic Summit presented by Rise Advisors to provide the necessary information to do just that. This year’s theme, The Future is 2020 will explore Canada’s economic forecast, artificial intelligence, automation and hyper-connectivity. This event will provide a framework for how the Tri-Cities and Metro Vancouver will transform in the next decade. This year’s Economic Summit is the trifecta: gain insight into Canada’s economic outlook, learn tangible business skills, and be inspired by the technology of today and the future. This morning event provides valuable insight into our provincial and national economies, global markets, and emerging industries, as well as networking opportunities with business leaders, change makers, and visionaries from across the country.

Cash for washing machines in Coq. Coquitlam residents thinking of replacing their washing machines could get a $100 rebate for upgrading to energyefficient models before May 31. Anyone buying and installing a clothes washer that qualifies can apply for the rebate up until May 31, or until funding runs out, at BC Hydro’s website powersmart.ca/appliances.

It’s a joint program offered every spring and fall by the city and BC Hydro, which also offers other appliance rebate programs on its website. The city said residents not only get the rebate their water use can be cut by almost 40% and electricity by 65%. Hydro estimates the program has saved an average

of 37.2 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions and four million litres of water per year in Coquitlam, equivalent to the emissions of eight vehicles and two Olympic-sized swimming pools of water. The washers must be purchased between April 5 and May 31 by Coquitlam residents.

Knee Pain?

If you suffer with joint pain, you can find relief! BOOK OF THE WEEK n The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton n Reviewed by Sharon Visser Araujo, Terry Fox Library

Evelyn Hardcastle is murdered every day at 11 p.m. and it is up to our hero to find the killer. The book starts out with a bang — literally. Aiden Bishop wakes up in the woods hearing a gunshot. With no memory of who he is or how he got there, Aiden is scared. He soon finds his way to the nearest house, Blackheath House, where he finds out he is actually Dr. Sebastian Bell. He fears the gunshot he heard was the sound of someone being murdered but chalks up much of his confusion to amnesia — that is, until he wakes up the following day in another person’s body. He soon finds out that he has to solve the mystery of Evelyn’s murder to end this cycle. Aiden has one ally, the mysterious Anna, but he is uncertain of her motives. The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is a classic locked-room mystery with a twist. Aiden has eight days, eight people to inhabit before his memories are erased and he has to start again. Find this gripping mystery and others like it at your local library.

tion April 30 from 7 to 8 p.m. in the ParkLane Room, Jill Scott, ND will discuss the common causes for anxiety and share some tools for restoring balance in our wellbeing, including diet, sleep, exercise and more. Call 604469-4577 to register. • Free Comic Book Day: Drop in to the library to pick up free all-ages comics May 4 between 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Enter to win some great prizes.

Did you know oral health impacts overall health? Many people know that poor oral hygiene can lead to gum disease, tooth decay and even lost teeth. But are you aware that failing to brush or visit the dentist regularly also can lead to more serious health issues? According to Colgate, recent research suggests that there may be an association between oral infections, particularly gum disease, and cardiovascular disease and preterm birth. Gum disease also may make diabetes more difficult to control, since infections may cause insulin resistance and disrupt blood sugar. Bacteria from your mouth can enter the bloodstream through infection sites in the gums. If your immune system is healthy, there should not be any adverse effects. However, if your immune system is compromised, these bacteria can flow to other areas of the body where they can cause infection. An important step in maintaining good overall health is to include dental care in your list of preventative measures. Visit the dentist for biannual cleanings or as determined by the doctor. Do not ignore any abnormalities in the mouth. Maintain good oral hygiene at home by brushing twice a day and flossing at least once per day. Mouthwashes and rinses also may help keep teeth and gums healthy.

Cinderella sweeps into Heritage Woods

London Blitz retold

Port Moody school takes on an old-fashioned fairy tale janis cleugh jcleugh@tricitynews.com

When Jade Lim looks out into the audience next month as Cinderella, she dreams of a sea of boys and girls. And maybe even a few in costumes. The Grade 11 student is cast in the lead role of Ella in the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, a production by Heritage Woods secondary that opens next Friday at the Port Moody high school. A total of 48 musical theatre students are in the show that’s based on the original French tale, which the American duo turned into a TV platform for Julie Andrews in 1957 and, in 2013, became a Broadway hit. It’s not the lovey-dovey Disney version they’re interpreting, Lim insists. Rather, “it’s an important story for boys and girls to believe in themselves and to follow their dreams,” she said last week during a rehearsal. Her Prince Topher, portrayed by Grade 12 student Marcus Jung, is not her “Charming” but her equal.

Prince Topher (Marcus Jung) finds his princess Ella (Jade Lim) in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical of Cinderella, which opens next Friday at Heritage Woods secondary in Port Moody. janis cleugh/the tRi-citY neWs

Jung said he auditioned for the role last fall because “I liked that it’s a meeting of the minds between Topher and Ella. I really thought he’s an interesting character. Topher wants to make a difference in the world around him and he wants Ella by his side.” Directed by Shanda Walters

and Zelda Coertze — with choreography by Coertze and Keely Callander McLennan — Cinderella follows the story of the two orphans from distinct backgrounds. The prince is advised by Lord Chancellor Sebastian, played by Michaela Susin (in a regal costume stitched by her

mother, Sabrina Susin) while Ella is guided by her revolutionary friend Jean-Michel (Ricardo Gutierrez). But Ella’s plans are often interrupted by her stepmother (Kendra Cordick) and step-sisters, Gabriella (Kate Wilson) and Charlotte (Mazzy Johnson).

Meanwhile, at the palace, Sebastian and his henchman, Lord Pinkleton (Aden Auyeung), plan for a ball to find Topher a bride; Ella appears incognito but loses her glass slipper as she rushes away at midnight. A search party ensues to find the girl in the white gown who won the prince’s heart. Lim, who played Sherrie Christian in last year’s Rock of Ages at Heritage Woods and was in the ensemble for All Shook Up, said she studied the Broadway show and attended the Theatre Under the Stars presentation last summer. Getting to play Ella as a positive role model for boys and girls “is quite overwhelming,” said Lim, who is in the school’s vocal jazz ensemble and concert choir. “But the whole thing has been just magical. It teaches you that when you have a challenge, you have to pick yourself up, be patient and move on.” “It’s just a beautiful story,” Walters said. “It’s about insecurities and having to overcome them.” Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella runs May 3, 4, 10 and 11 at Heritage Woods secondary (1300 David Ave., Port Moody). Tickets are $12/$10 at the door on show nights or by calling 604-461-8679.

Expect Exceptional Theatre mounts Down The Tube janis cleugh jcleugh@tricitynews.com

A play penned by a TriCity resident who survived the Blitz will come to life next month in Port Moody. Expect Exceptional Theatre will perform Down The Tube by English native Frank Watts at the Gallery Bistro (2411 Clarke St.) on May 3 and 5, and at the Port Moody Station Museum (2734 Murray St.) on May 10, 11 and 12. Taylor Stutchbury and Linda MacLean portray Doreen and Brenda, two mothers who hide in the London underground train stations while German bombs rain down on London, in April 1941; the show is directed by Cathie Young. It’s the second Watts play for the company that, two years ago, mounted his work about the Second World War. Watts is a member of the Port Moody-based theatre troupe, which is known for its Venosta radio shows. For tickets to Tube, visit expecttheatre.ca.

For a long and happy life, sing We have the most senior of senior choirs, director says janis cleugh jcleugh@tricitynews.com

When Kathy Lauwers’ parents moved into Parkwood Manor, she asked the director of the Coquitlam retirement residence if there was a choir her folks could join. There wasn’t so the longtime piano teacher started an ensemble, hoping to draw eight to 10 seniors for weekly rehearsals to learn new songs and sing as a group. “We had 22 people show up for the first practice,” Lauwers recalled of their inaugural meeting 14 years ago. “And from there, it just grew and grew with more.” Today, Lauwers leads 38 Parkwood Singers on Tuesdays — teaching lyrics and harmonies to residents in their 80s and 90s — and for public shows at Christmas and spring; their next concert,

Pat Bush and Mabel Cameron are 100 and enjoy singing in the Parkwood Manor choir, which on Friday will host its spring concert at 7:30 p.m. janis cleugh/the tri-city news

titled Turn on the Sun, is on Friday at 7:30 p.m. They are the most senior of senior choirs in the TriCities, Lauwers said, noting Parkwood Singers now has the

distinct honour of having two 100-year-old vocalists. Pat Bush, who became a centenarian three weeks ago, signed up for the choir when she and her husband moved

into Parkwood Manor 14 years ago, after relocating from Toronto to be closer to family. “It was the perfect opportunity,” she said. At the time, Bush — who

describes herself as a “low alto” — didn’t have much singing experience though she knew music and rhythm, having gone to dances each weekend with her husband in Ontario. “We loved the waltzes,” she remembered. Bush enjoys “all kinds of songs but not rock and roll. I like singing because if you are feeling down in the dumps, it makes you feel better. It puts a smile on your face.” The treats Lauwers brings to practices are also appreciated, Bush said with a wink. For Mabel Cameron, who turned 100 in January, the English native signed up for the choir before she became a resident of the Dufferin Street facility four years ago. She got to know the Singers while her daughter-in-law’s mother was at the manor. “I enjoy the choir very much and I look forward to choir practice,” she said, often trading banter with Lauwers’ husband, Gary, who is also with the Parkwood Singers. A former ladies’ shoes salesperson in London and

at Woodwards in Vancouver, Cameron prefers “trendy ballads” — her current favourite being a song on the spring concert program: On The Street Where You Live, from the musical My Fair Lady. The Lauwers anticipate the Friday show will be well attended as previous concerts have attracted more than 200 guests. “It’s been standingroom only,” Gary said. “We’ve had the children come out because their parents have invited them to hear the Singers and they’re really shocked,” added Kathy Lauwers who records her piano accompaniment on a CD, with the help of a sound technician from her church. “It’s, for me, the most inspiring thing to have people in their 80s and 90s — and now two 100-year-olds — perform so beautifully and in unison and with harmonies.” “I don’t baby them during practices,” she continued. “I don’t give them easy songs but they are all quite willing to learn. They sing with open minds and open hearts.”

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: pIlAR mEHlIS

March of fish, humans mirrors artist’s travels Pilar Mehlis’ life and artwork shows stark contrasts. A native of Bolivia, she and her family immigrated to the Yukon when she was 12. There, she took her first painting lesson before returning to La Paz five years later. She moved back to Whitehorse half way through her studies before relocating to Victoria, where she gained her BFA in 1998. The New York City-born Mehlis draws on her travels for her artwork; her latest show, Transmigrification, which opened March 28 at the Port Moody Arts Centre, features paintings and sculptures looking at human and animal movements in anthropomorphic forms such as the AntroFish (half human, half fish) figure.

A powerful play about life inside a mental institution will close Stage 43 Theatrical Society’s As Seen on Screen season. Richard Wiens portrays convict and resident hellion Randle Patrick McMurphy while Katherine Morris is cast as Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest— a comedy/drama made famous in the 1975 film starring Jack Nicholson and Louise Fletcher. It opens next Thursday at the Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam) and runs until May 11. Adapted by playwright Dale Wasserman from the 1962 novel by Ken Kesey, the stage show traces McMurphy’s introduction to the asylum as a short-term patient; it also examines its patients and authoritarian caretakers in an Oregon psychiatric hospital. Directed by Aaron Davis, the Stage 43 show features six Tri-City residents: Pascal Belanger as Cheswick, Caleb Berg as Ruckly, David Noga as Dr. Spivey/Aide Turkle, Luca Herring as Aide Warren, Jordon Strudwick as Aide Williams and Erin Lai as Sandra.

BCJALL

New boss, new confidence for PoCo Saints Junior lax season opens tomorrow at PoCo Rec Centre MARIO BARTEL mbartel@tricitynews.com

In their 25th anniversary season, a lot is new for the Port Coquitlam Saints. The biggest change for the BC Junior A Lacrosse League team is at the top. Josh Wahl is the Saints’ new president and general manager, taking the reins from Reg Thompson, who headed the franchise since it was founded in 1994 until he retired last October. While Wahl may be new in the role, he’s no stranger to Port Coquitlam’s lacrosse scene. A former coach of the Saints’ Intermediate and Junior B teams, he’s also been the president of the city’s minor system for the past five years. That makes Wahl uniquely qualified to strengthen the Saints from the bottom up, reinforcing the bond between the pinnacle of lacrosse in Port Coquitlam and the kids of all ages playing the sport. “It’s really important,” said Wahl of the ties between the junior team and the minor system that hasn’t always been the most secure, especially in recent seasons when Thompson tried moving the Saints to Maple Ridge, where

he lives. “The kids want to be a Saint. They aspire to be a Junior Saint.” Stoking that dream is Wahl’s top priority, he said, as BCJALL rules dictate most of a team’s players must come from its immediate territory. To achieve that, the Saints have to be competitive, a goal that hasn’t always been easy. They haven’t won a playoff

game since 2016 and their last series’ victory was in 2006 when they defeated the Delta Islanders and New Westminster Salmonbellies to advance to the league final, only to be swept in three straight games by the Burnaby Lakers Still, the Saints haven’t been completely bereft of talent. Keegan Bell, Ryland Rees and

Dylan Foulds all ran the floor at the PoCo Rec Centre, and, of course, Curtis Dickson was an all-star two of the three seasons he wore the team’s black and gold colours. Wahl said he plans to create an alumni club to highlight the top players who’ve developed through the Saints’ system. “We need to educate the

current minor players,” he said. Current Saints will also be charged to coach minor players and help out with clinics, to be role models for kids still learning the game. Already through the off-season, several players have visited every elementary school in Port Coquitlam to talk about lacrosse and the team’s history

in the community. “We’re doing everything we can to get out there,” Wahl said. Still, challenges remain. On the eve of last season’s playoffs, the Saints fired head coach Kelly Scott, who’d guided the team to a thirdplace finish, and replaced him with Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Famer Dan Stroup. The team quickly bowed out of the first round, but Wahl said Stroup’s reputation and recent experience as an assistant coach with the Colorado Mammoth of the National Lacrosse League will help attract top young players. “We’re more interested in players who want to play here,” Wahl said. “It’s not just taking whoever comes along.” Another hurdle will be the myriad construction barriers in and around the Saints’ home, as work progresses to complete Port Coquitlam’s new $132 million recreation complex that is being built in several phases around the old twin-pad rink. That means one more season in the venerable green rink, then another season or two in the new centre’s leisure rink with limited seating capacity before the team hopes to be able to move into its new home in the project’s second phase that is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2021. see

Jr. Adanacs look to fill holes continued from page

“It’s going to be a challenge,� Wahl said, adding fans will again be able to park in the West Coast Express lot just across the street. But the Coquitlam Adanacs had to endure a similar disruption when their home arena was renovated and expanded into the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex, and that team hasn’t missed qualifying for the Minto Cup national junior lacrosse championship since. Not a bad precedent to emulate. “They’ve had a lot of success,� Wahl said of the Saints’ rivals up the hill. “But now it’s someone else’s turn to take a run.�

NEW FACES IN COQUITLAM

The graduation of key components like goaltender Christian Del Bianco and defender Ryland Rees means the beginning of a new chapter for the Coquitlam Jr. Adanacs. But the team’s general manager, Scott Wortley, hopes the story of the coming BC Junior A Lacrosse League season will end the same. Del Bianco and Rees were selected first and second overall in February’s Western Lacrosse Association draft after they led the Jr. Adanacs to their second Minto Cup national championship in three years last August. And while Wortley concedes their absence leaves a huge hole in the

team’s lineup, the mantle of sound defensive lacrosse preached by coach Pat Coyle will be capably picked up by their successors, including former backup keeper, Nate Faccin. “He’s ready to step in,� said Wortley of the thirdyear shotstopper who won all six of the games he started last season. Faccin’s transition to the starting job will be eased by the return of 13 regulars from last season along with a handful of players who had a swig of Gatorade with the team to fill in for injured or absent veterans. New faces include Dawson Rodin, whom the Adanacs acquired from the Burnaby Lakers in the off-season, and Connor Evers, who comes from the Delta Islanders. Wortley said Rodin brings size to the Adanacs’ right side, while Evers was a former top pick in the BCJALL draft. “With them your experience level goes right up,� Wortley said. As well, Reid Bowering will be back for his third season as the team’s captain to provide quiet leadership to its younger players. Still, expectations remain high for the Adanacs, who’ve lost a total of four games over the past four regular seasons. And no more so than from the team’s own players and management. “You don’t want to be part of the team that stops the run we’ve had,� Wortley said.

Dr. Charles Best Blue Devils midfielder Valerie Silva tries to elude the marking of Riverside Rapids defenders Amy Vegh and Sophie Irvine in the first half of their Fraser Valley North senior girls high school soccer match, last Wednesday at Dr. Charles Best secondary. Silva scored a goal and Marina Verones added two more to lead Best to a 3-1 victory, solidifying first place in the league’s standings. It was also the Blue Devils first win since ascending to the top rank in the province earlier in the week. Kelsey Stewart scored the Rapids’ goal in their first loss of the season, that also includes a tie against second-place Centennial, which thumped Heritage Woods 6-1 on Wednesday. Port Moody secondary beat the Terry Fox Ravens, 3-2, in the other match. MARIO BARTEL/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Federal stress test caused up to $15B drop in new mortgages: economist The federal government’s mortgage stress test has done its job and it’s now time to rethink the rules, according to a leading economist.

75 basis points, and the five-year mortgage rate has risen by 35 basis points.”

Benjamin Tal, chief economist at CIBC, published a report last week citing CIBC research findings that the B-20 stress test has been responsible for a $13-15 billion decline in new mortgage loan values since its January 2018 introduction.

Since its inception, the federal mortgage stress test has been largely blamed by the real estate industry for the slowdown in housing demand.

The stress test on new mortgage applications, launched by the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI), ensures home buyers are able to cover their payments at the Bank of Canada’s five-year posted rate or two per cent above their actual mortgage rate, whichever is the higher. The CIBC research found that “the vast majority of the decline in mortgage originations in 2018 was due to fewer borrowers (down by 4.9 per cent), as opposed to a smaller average mortgages. Overall, according to various sources, B-20 accounted for 50-60 per cent (or $13-$15 billion) of the overall decline in originations throughout 2018.” Time to ‘revisit’ test Tal said that the stress test was likely needed at the time, but it doesn’t account for rising average incomes, increases in home equity over the course of a mortgage term, or the reduced risk of longer-term mortgages. He also said that it is partly to blame for the rise in alternative lending. Tal wrote that it is time to “revisit” the test, particularly the rule that buyers must qualify at two per cent (200 basis points) above their contracted mortgage rate. He wrote, “The stress test imposed on the market was probably necessary, since there was a need to save some Canadian borrowers from themselves. But is 200 basis points the right number? At the end of the day, there is no real science behind that number. Let’s remember that the rule was introduced in an environment of an already slowing market, and that since then, the Bank of Canada has hiked rates by

test has created near recession level housing demand despite the province boasting the lowest unemployment rates in a decade. The average home sale price in B.C. fell 5.4 per cent year over year to $687,720, according to the BCREA. In Greater Vancouver, the average sale price dropped 3.9 per cent

B.C. home sales slid 23 per cent year-over-year to a total of 5,707 resale transactions in March, according to the latest data from the British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA).

In Greater Vancouver, home sales dropped 31.6 per cent in March compared with the previous year, with 1,745 units changing hands in the month, down from 2,551 in March 2018. “B.C. home sales continue to be adversely impacted by federal mortgage policy,” said Cameron Muir, BCREA’s chief economist. “The erosion of affordability caused by the B-20 stress

purchase price of around $505,000, assuming a five per cent deposit and a $480,000 mortgage value plus CMHC loan.

The slowing sales have contributed to a rise in home inventory on the market. Total active listings across B.C. increased 36.2 per cent to 34,295 units, compared with the same month last year. The ratio of sales to active listings has fallen from 29.4 per cent (a strong seller’s market) to 16.6 per cent (a balanced market) over the past year.

Tal said he believed the program would only be used by a small percentage of people. He wrote, “We estimate that, fully utilized, this plan will impact only three per cent of borrowers and 0.12 per cent of mortgage origination dollars — not quite a gamechanger.” Purchase price cap criticized

Muir added that the continued lack of affordability was creating pent-up demand as would-be buyers put their purchasing plans temporarily on hold.

Critics have suggested that the incentive’s purchase price cap means those who most need the money, in expensive cities such as Vancouver and Toronto, will get the least use of the program, as average home prices in those areas are far higher than the incentive’s maximum purchase price.

“Unfortunately, new home construction is slowing as well, which will likely lead to another housing supply crunch down the road,” he said. Not a game-changer

Patricia Graham 604-720-3606

However, CMHC has disputed this argument, saying that there are many options for starter homes in both cities under $505,000.

In his report, CIBC’s Tal also assessed the new First Time Home Buyer Incentive, which was announced by the Liberal Party as part of the 2019 Federal Budget. The program is set to offer interest-free loans to first-time buyers up to five per cent of the purchase value on a resale home, or 10 per cent on a new-build home, in a sharedequity scheme with Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.

ALMOST A 3 BEDROOM! $489,000

The CMHC wrote in a report, “Despite the income and borrowing limits, we are confident this program can work in all markets, including Vancouver and Toronto… This program applies up to a house price of $505,000, assuming a five per cent down payment. However, we shouldn’t confuse market average prices ($1 million in

Tips and Tricks

All fertilizer and grass seed is far from equal. Did you know that our brands are specifically formulated for the lower mainland? National brands have the same ingredients for across the country. We even have specific grass seed blends for shade, slopes, drought, Chafer beetle resistance and more to fit your specific need. Our fertilizer blends are also 100% nutrition in the bag as we add NO filler. We also use a technique which we like to call the Smartie coating covering the nitrogen so that it will break down slowly over a longer period for better results. Also, all of our fertilizers are pet and child friendly. If you have Chafer beetle damage the repair process is quite easy. Tamp down the affected area and top dress with soil to level. Add the Chaffer beetle resistant grass seed and lawn starter fertilizer and then cover with a final skim of premium top soil. Keep moist and within a week you should see lawn sprouts One last thing, if you’d like the instant lawn, we sell turf too by special order. 50 roll minimum.

Trend Alert

Although simple, the tie-front look adds a little something more to an outfit. Sometimes tying up an actual button-down leaves the fabric bunchy and annoying, so luckily pre-tied tops exist! While it’s nothing new, the Tie-front tops are perfect for spring, especially with some high waist jeans or shorts. This trend seems to be peaking in popularity right now, and just in time to form the summer uniform of choice. There is no arguing that denim jackets are the perfect transition outerwear essential. If it gets too warm you can tie it around your waist. If it get’s too cold you can add a light scarf or hoodie underneath. A good denim jacket is a versatile piece that you can wear with almost anything you have in your closet.

The Graceful Japanese Maple

A favourite of many gardeners, the Japanese Maple delivers beauty, ease of care and variety. There are literally thousands of named varieties, all of which are gems in the garden. Choose from upright or weeping forms, and dozens of shades of each red, green or variegated leaf varieties and laceleaf or full leaf. Rarely bothered by insect or disease, they are container friendly and do not generally need pruning. They are well behaved in the garden, not likely to get enormous or have roots that will lift your driveway. The green leaf varieties prefer afternoon shade while the red leaf varieties can withstand more sun because the red pigment in the leaf protects them from scorching. Keep them well watered during periods of drought and they will look fabulous in your gardens or patios for years to come.
