SCHOOL DISTRICT 43

Charity case: SD43 starts own foundation District wants ‘more visible vehicle’ for fundraising efforts GRAnT GRAnGER ggranger@tricitynews.com

Sitka, a 22-year-old Steller sea lion, breaches the water during a training run up Burrard Inlet. She’s one of four animals at the Marine Mammal Research Station, a one-of-kind facility in Port Moody whose future is in jeopardy as long-term funding comes to an end.

School District 43 is setting up its own fundraising foundation in the hope it will be able to attract more donations than it currently receives. Although SD43 is a not-forprofit organization and can issue tax receipts for donations, the district has decided to create the SD43 Education Foundation in the hope it will provide “a more visible vehicle to attract donations,” according to a report presented Tuesday to the board of education. It said the move will allow staff to point potential donors to the foundation and designate money it gets from sources other than govern-

ment into the foundation. Amongst the foundation’s activities will be to support initiatives like extra-curricular activities, scholarships and prizes for students. “There are situations where parents or individuals or corporations would like to make donations to the district and they’re not really aware we can make donations and hand out receipts,” board chair Barb Hobson told The Tri-City News Wednesday. “We just felt a foundation would make it much clearer to provide information on how they can donate to a bursary or for equipment, or even to provide in-kind services. “There are other school boards who have done similar things, including Langley, and we just felt it made it clearer to the public,” said Hobson, a Coquitlam trustee. see

2019 FEDERAL ELECTION

‘We don’t have the luxury of sitting on the sidelines. We’re being politicized by the conditions of our time’ Younger voters are getting involved on issues they value

FEDERAL ALL-CANDIDATES MEETINGS

STEFAN LAbbé slabbe@tricitynews.com

tudents drift in and out of the commons area at Douglas College. Some queue for coffee at Tim Hortons, others cross the floor, attracted by a digital carousel flipping through public policy challenges: climate change, affordable child care, housing. The big screen was brought in for students to share their biggest concerns. It’s a talking point and a reminder that the election is around the corner. If that wasn’t enough, on the table, pamphlets, pins and pens emblazoned with “I will vote” litter the table. It’s all part of a growing get-out-the-vote movement, which, for this election cycle, was re-ignited this month in a campaign launched by the BC Federation of Students (BCFS), an organization that represents about 170,000 students in 14 universities and colleges. At the heart of the campaign, young people pledge to vote, either on paper, guided by 100 volunteers across the province or online. Once they sign the pledge, prospective voters receive information on how, where and when to vote, as well as party platforms and digital updates throughout the election campaign. “We don’t tell people who to vote for and we’re not talking about any issues during this period. It’s simply getting people the information they need to go out and vote,” said Janelle Davies, an organizer for BCFS.  As demographics lean towards a younger electorate, currying votes from youth has become an increasingly important factor on the road to electoral victory. Voter participation among young people spiked in the 2015 federal elec-

tion, with Elections Canada data showing that 57% of voters aged 18 to 24 cast a ballot, an increase of 18% from the 39% recorded in the 2011 election. That’s the largest increase ever recorded by the elections agency since it began reporting demographic data. Add that to the high turnout in the 2017 B.C. provincial election and a demographic shift that — for the first time in 40 years — positions young Canadians as the largest voting bloc in a federal election, and BCFS chair Tanysha Klassen says the message is clear: Young Canadians can’t be ignored. “There are clear and obvious reasons for higher voter participation amongst young millennials across western democracies in the past three to four years,” said Klassen.

“Our job prospects are tenuous, housing and education costs are through the roof, and the planet is burning. We don’t have the luxury of sitting on the sidelines. We’re being politicized by the conditions of our time.” For Douglas College student Mitchel Gadayo, the last federal election was the first time he had voted. At the time, he was a first-year student at the school’s Coquitlam campus. Today, he is the student union’s director of external relations, a position that puts him in charge of this year’s voting campaign. In the four years since the last federal election, the students walking the halls of Douglas College have changed, he said. “We see this trend of being more educated, more woke to issues that matter to them,” said Gadayo. “The conversations that we’re having are, ‘What can we do about climate change? What can we do about affordability?’ Student associations have become one of the most powerful vehicles to get young voters to the ballot box. That’s partly because of simple logistics: It’s easier to find and

convince 18- to 24-year-old students to vote when they’re concentrated on a campus like Douglas’, said Paul Kershaw, the founder of the research and advocacy group Generation Squeeze. “We’re turning the tide on the idea that politics is a punchline of a joke rather than a really important process we need to participate in,” he told The Tri-City News. Kershaw said data does not support the narrative that discounts young people as lazy, whiney, entitled consumerists and, in politics, apathetic; rather, Kershaw said, the boomer generation turned off younger generations from electoral politics by socializing them to view politics as something that won’t affect them. Party politics hasn’t done any better. Kershaw points to the tendency of parties to devote a chunk of their spending promises on health care and old age security, investments that disproportionately benefit older people; in contrast, they’ve traditionally set aside modest amounts to make life more affordable — through investments in things like education and childcare — or tackling climate change.

Here’s a list of Tri-City all-candidates meetings where you can see and listen to your candidates up close and personal, and ask them questions important to you: • Oct. 1: TROPICA (The Residents of Pleasantside Ioco Communities Association) is hosting a Brew-Debate at Moody Ales from 7 to 8 p.m. and The Parkside Brewery from 8 to 9 p.m. featuring candidates from the Port Moody-Coquitlam riding, who will first speak in a moderated segment and then connect with voters in a meetand-greet-style event. • Oct. 2: Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce hosts an allcandidates meeting for the Port Moody-Coquitlam riding at PoMo’s Inlet Theatre, 100 Inlet Dr., starting at 7 p.m. This event will also be streamed live through the chamber’s Facebook page, with viewers able to join those in attendance in asking questions of the candidates via slido.com. • Oct. 3: Tri-Cities Chamber of Commerce hosts its allcandidates meeting for the Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam riding at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre, 1205 Pinetree Way; starting at 7 p.m. This will also be livestreamed via the chamber’s Facebook page, with viewers able to join those in attendance in asking questions of the candidates via slido.com. • Oct. 6: The Civic Association of Iranian-Canadians is hosting an all-candidates debate at the City Centre branch of Coquitlam Public Library (1169 Pinetree Way) from 1 to 3 p.m. The organizers have invited candidates from both local ridings. • Oct. 8: TROPICA is hosting its second Brew-Debate at Twin Sails Brewing from 7 to 8 p.m. and Yellow Dog Brewing Co. from 8 to 9 p.m. featuring candidates from the Port Moody-Coquitlam riding, who will first speak in a moderated segment and then connect with voters in a meet-and-greet-style event. • Oct. 9: The Tri-Cities Environment Debate is bringing candidates together from both Port Moody-Coquitlam and Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam to talk about their best ideas and proposals for the environment. It’s part of a national 100 Debates on the Environment Program and will take place at Douglas College’s David Lam Campus (1250 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam) from 7 to 9 p.m. Kershaw said that makes younger people less likely to engage with electoral politics and perpetuates a vicious cycle of voter alienation. But that changed last federal election and part of the Liberals’ success was because of an uptick in the turnout of young people, who disproportionately voted for them. The BCFS claims young voter turnout in the last federal and provincial elections provides enough evidence of a sea-change in voter demographics.

This time around, other political parties seem to be getting the message; so far, a lot of lip service has been paid to improving affordability for Canadians. Whether that will motivate young voters to come out again in the same way as they did in 2015 is something Kershaw is watching carefully. “We’ve only got the 2015 federal election as a national data point that shows a reversal in that trend,” he said. “But if they do [come out], absolutely a trend is emerging.”

DEVELOPMENT AROUND SKYTRAIN

Oakdale residents looking to future Some residents say density needed to up housing supply

Coquitlam winds down QNet corp., keeps biz

GARY McKENNA gmckenna@tricitynews.com

More housing is coming to Coquitlam’s Oakdale neighbourhood but how much density should be added is still up for debate among residents. Three options were presented at an open house Saturday, ranging from detached homes and low-rise apartments (Option 1) to townhouses and transitvillage commercial (Option 3). According to Maria Mastromonaco, who has lived in the neighbourhood for 18 years, enthusiasm for the changes varies depending on what sub-area a person resides in. Homeowners in A and B, which are closest to SkyTrain and stand to see the biggest density increases, tend to support the changes, while those further away in E and F are more reticent, she said. Mastromonaco and her partner, Bruno Gasbarro, live in sub-area D and are unsure how they feel about seeing their neighbourhood significantly altered with new development. They have raised their children in Oakdale and have concerns about parking and the impact construction will have on livability. “Everyone’s feeling is it

Jack Bi expresses his preference for densification by placing a sticker on one of the many options presented at the land-use designation update for the Oakdale neighbourhood, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Coquitlam. STEFAN LABBé/ThE Tri-CiTy NEwS

will inevitably be developed,” Mastromonaco said during last Saturday’s open house at the Mediated Learning Academy. “What is the best thing for each family?” If the land use changes go ahead, she said she is not sure they will stay in their home. “It is so hard to say,” she said. “We are just going with the flow.” Nicola and Ian Dowdall are firmly in the camp that wants greater density in the area. They said they have kids who grew up in Oakdale and, given the Lower Mainland real estate market, they will

struggle to stay in the area if more housing options, like apartments and townhouses, are not permitted. “I know they are going to struggle getting into the market and if I can help them with that by going through this process, then, yeah, it is good for everyone,” Ian Dowdall told The Tri-City News. The Dowdalls acknowledge the potential financial windfall should the potential density on their property significantly increase. As homeowners in sub-area B — a street that under Option 3 would go from

detached housing to highdensity residential — they stand to make a nice return on their investment if the property is upzoned, they said. “You can double your money on the property depending on the density,” Ian Dowdall said. “So there is definitely a financial incentive for people to do this but that doesn’t necessarily mean it is the wrong thing to do.” Ingrid and Jack Bi live in sub-area D and support Option 3, and said they love the neighbourhood and want to open it up to more residents

The city of Coquitlam is dissolving the corporation it set up more than a decade ago to increase and speed up traffic on the information highway but that doesn’t mean the distribution vehicle is being parked. The Coquitlam Optical Network Corporation, branded QNet, was established in 2008 to take advantage of the extra capacity on the city’s fibre-optic cable network. QNet was created with a $4.95 million loan from the city with the intention of providing the high-speed technology to businesses. In 2018, QNet generated $828,000 in revenue, with the surplus reducing the net debt it owed the city from $4.64 million in 2017 to $4.39 million. QNet’s financial report to council in April made a “conservative” estimate of the loan and interest charges being repaid to the city by 2027. But the corporation, whose board of directors and officers are all city employees, has decided to dissolve and turn its operations, agreements, assets and liabilities over to the city to run in-house. “We currently have a board of directors that technically manages it, but it isn’t a very good governance structure,” Mayor Richard Stewart told The Tri-City News.

More on this story: tricitynews.com who, like them, want to start out owning a townhouse or apartment before moving to a detached home. “We have been through the toughness of trying to own a property,” said Jack Bi. “If we can provide more options to the next generation, I will be happy.”

The city has been consulting with the public on the land use designation update, which they said will guide development in the Oakdale area for the next 25 years. Residents can weigh in at www.coquitlam.ca/oakdale until Sept. 30. – with files from Stefan Labbé

Work related to school project is creating hazards, says mom

Funding for Tri-City drug team

Utility work near Minnekhada middle is causing problems JanIs cleugh jcleugh@tricitynews.com

Drop-offs and pick-ups in front of Minnekhada middle are a safety hazard, says a mom of a student at the Port Coquitlam school. And Tammy Hart warns it’s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. In April, School District 43 started ripping up Laurier Avenue and Ulster Street as part of a multi-phased project to replace Minnekhada. Ken Hoff, SD43’s assistant director of communications and community relations, said the work also involves utility upgrades for the municipality, with “tasks being completed by contractor as well as city crews.” Hoff said he expects the Laurier work to wrap up by the end of next month. But PoCo’s engineering and public works director Forrest Smith said while it’s a collaborative project and the city is reimbursing SD43 for the utility servicing updates, the municipality is only responsible for the road and utility designs. He said enquiries about construc-

tion — including timing, road conditions and safety conditions — are to be directed to the school district. Hart said she’s frustrated with the runaround and wants the work finished. Last Friday afternoon, just before Minnekhada students were released for the week-

end, she led The Tri-City News on a walk down Laurier to point out the dangers as pedestrians and cyclists swerved around large holes. The students’ exit was also caught on video, showing kids crossing Laurier while drivers in personal vehicles and buses navigated through

and around the dips. Hart said the construction has been poor from the getgo, with gravel spilling out of potholes and, during rainfall, creating deeper gaps. In May, crews removed the sidewalks and placed cones near the holes; caution tape — strung between trees —

also blocked off the school doors. And although new sidewalks along Laurier went in just days before school started this month, the road conditions continued to get worse, she said. Hart said while driving, she nearly struck a child dodging the road work and, on one rainy day, she was forced to stop her car, get out and help an elderly disabled man in his motorized scooter who was stuck in a pothole. To make matters worse, Hart said, the school crosswalk hasn’t been repainted and bright orange signs cautioning commuters have fallen down. Hart called the construction project “a disgrace… Someone is going to get severely injured or killed.” Mayor Brad West told The Tri-City News he hasn’t had any direct complaints from constituents but, when organizers of last week’s Terry Fox Hometown Run reached out about the Laurier construction, West ensured them there was fencing around the holes for the 2,000 participants passing by. West said city staff have relayed their concerns to SD43. “When construction happens, we want it done in an appropriate way to minimize inconvenience,” he said.

Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam and Port Moody are among 16 B.C. communities to receive up to $150,000 in funding for community action teams (CAT) to battle the overdose crisis. A mental health and addictions ministry spokesperson said Fraser Health identified the Tri-Cities as needing the program, which is already in 19 B.C. communities and provides local, integrated planning and strategies in response to the crisis. The funding was announced Monday along with a program that will provide up to $50,000 in grant funding for community projects — such as community dialogues, needle distribution and recovery programs — to stem the tide of overdoses. “From day one, we recognized that it is people on the ground, on the front lines of the overdose crisis who know best what works in their communities, large and small,” said Judy Darcy, the minister of mental health and addictions when announcing the funding at the Union of BC Municipalities convention in Vancouver. The CAT will be run by Fraser Health, Share Family and Community Services, Fraser Northwest Division of Family Practice and the cities of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody.

MOODY CENTRE PLAN

‘Redefining the future of Port Moody’ Consortium unveils its initial plans for Moody Centre land MARiO BARTEL mbartel@tricitynews.com

Port Moody residents will get their first look at a new plan for the city’s commercial core in about a month. Monday, representatives from a consortium of 10 property owners — including TransLink, Anthem properties, PCI Group and Beedie Living, along with several smaller owners — launched a series of workshops with stakeholders such as transportation advocates and the arts community to discuss their vision for the 23-acre neighbourhood adjacent to the Moody Centre SkyTrain station. The feedback and ideas collected from the workshops will be categorized by the project’s design team and adjustments made to preliminary concepts before a more detailed plan is presented to the public at an open house sometime in midto late-October, said Virendra Kallianpur, the associate principal of design consultants Perkins & Will. Kallianpur said the concepts are the product of 18 months of collaboration between the project’s proponents and city staff that is “about redefining the future of Port Moody.” In a presentation, he said the

project will take advantage of its proximity to Moody Centre Station to transform several blocks of light industrial buildings and auto repair shops that account for about 270 jobs — but no housing — into an area with up to 3,775 homes as well as retail, office and light industrial spaces that could employ up to 1,400 people. Kallianpur said those employment opportunities will be key to fulfilling the city’s vision for the area in its official community plan as a dense, transitoriented neighbourhood that will allow people to live and

work in the same place while reducing commuter traffic. “Creating jobs is an important aspect we are thinking about,” he said. In July, Port Moody Coun. Hunter Madsen said that wasn’t good enough as he submitted a report to council calling for changes to the OCP to put more emphasis on attracting high-tech employers to Moody Centre. He said the switch is necessary to ensure the city doesn’t just become a bedroom community. “Nine of 10 residents are leaving town for work,” he said

at the time, adding that is one of the worst rates in the Lower Mainland. Kallianpur said adding the residential and commercial aspects will ensure a vibrant neighbourhood that can enjoy public spaces in pocket parks along a traffic-calmed Spring Street, an expansive plaza at the entrance to the transit station that will be utilized for community gatherings as well as public art displays, and even commune with nature at a daylighted Dallas Creek. He said the anticipated mix of 2,500 to 3,300 condos, 300

to 385 market rental units and 70 to 90 below-market rental apartments would attract a diverse demographic of residents who would bring muchneeded life to the area. And while Kallianpur conceded many of those residents would be living in towers that would change Port Moody’s skyline, he said great care has been taken to preserve view corridors and create sunlight opportunities by the strategic placement of buildings. “We want positive change,” he said. – with files from Grant Granger

Port Moody residents who don’t follow the rules for disposing of their garbage will soon face stiffer fines. And the volunteer data-collection work of one PoMo woman played a major role in the city’s action. For more on this bear champion, see tricitynews.com

THE TRI-CITY NEWS’ OPINION

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

Black/brownface is idiotic – and lots of hypocrisy to go around

Last Week t

Failure to consider another person’s pain is the key here

“That failure to consider another person’s pain is what gives systemic racism oxygen to breathe... A similar strain of myopic cruelty can be found in school bullies as well as demagogues who rail against multiculturalism.”

NORTH SHORE NEWS @NorthShoreNews

L

ike many, we were disappointed in Justin Trudeau after seeing a picture of Canada’s prime minister wearing brownface at a party held during his years as a teacher. He has also worn blackface. It is especially galling after years of the PM cultivating his image, and that of the federal Liberal party, as being inclusive and welcoming of diversity while calling out others for being less enlightened. There’s no question this has been the biggest scandal of the election campaign but

Should Port Moody Mayor Rob Vagramov take leave until his criminal case is resolved?

PM JUSTIN TRUDEAU

let’s be wary of those looking to advance their political fortunes from this. There is plenty of hypocrisy to go around. And politicians are not the victims here — people of colour are. To take entire races or ethnic groups, reduce them to stereotypes and make them

into a costume is belittling and deeply hurtful. It was as wrong for a 29-year-old drama teacher to do in 2001 as it was in Jim Crow-era minstrel shows. The only way good can from this is if we examine the pathology that led to it. After his apology, Trudeau said it was his privileged upbringing that allowed him to act so callously. That failure to consider another person’s pain is what gives systemic racism oxygen to breathe. And

while Trudeau’s theatrical idiocy makes him somewhat distinct, a similar strain of myopic cruelty can be found in school bullies as well as demagogues who rail against multiculturalism. We all have the potential to be bigoted. But we also bear a heavier, greater burden: We have the potential to challenge that bigotry in ourselves and in others. It’s time we took the makeup off and finally looked at what’s underneath.

Article on meeting ‘bullied’ church pastor

The Editor, I was at a SkyTrain station in Burnaby last week waiting to meet a date. While waiting, I saw there was a young couple sitting on the ground amidst their meagre possessions. They looked to be in pretty rough shape, especially the guy, and she was begging. I walked over and asked the woman if her partner was OK and if there was anyone I could call for them. She said he was sick, and I was thinking withdrawal symptoms. I only had $10 in my pocket but I gave it to

them anyway. I went back to my bench to wait for my date to arrive but kept my eye on the couple, thinking I might need to call 911 if her partner appeared to be in distress. They just sat there looking like the weight of the world had ground them right down. People continued to come and go from the SkyTrain station and no one, not even the SkyTrain staff, bothered to check to see if these two people were all right. It’s a sad comment on who we have become as a society.

I get that amidst this housing crisis, we are all busy and caught up in our own issues. I’ve been precariously employed since January but I refuse to allow my situation change how I see the world. It costs you nothing to see a person and offer them a greeting. No one should be invisible or seen as disposable or not worthy of basic human dignity. When we allow ourselves not to see the people around us, community breaks down and we all lose. Rob Bottos, Coquitlam

The Editor, Re. “Candidates won’t attend church meeting” (The TriCity News, Sept. 19). I and am deeply concerned and disappointed in the biased attack The Tri-City News made on a wonderful church that for many years has done nothing but show full-on support in a multitude of ways to the entire community of Coquitlam. The church was seeking to serve the community by hosting an all-candidates meeting. If the pastor were hateful or bigoted, he would not have invited candidates who clearly do not support or hold his personal beliefs. He is loving and accepting enough to have

invited all views and all parties to come and present. Your attempts to shame, defame and bully Pastor Gabeli are not only unfounded but they are disgraceful. As a fellow leader in the region, who recently hosted his third all-candidates meeting, I am calling for you to issue a full public apology to him and his church. It is shameful that you have helped aid those who have effectively dismantled this vital event intended to serve the community in the federal election.

Exercise is the best medicine This Tri-City exercise clinic is changing the way local people think about the gym SPONSORED CONTENT

I

t’s been open for less than a year, but a new exercise clinic in The Tri-Cities is already changing the lives of local residents. This is no ordinary gym however. In fact, LIVE WELL Exercise Clinic likes to describe itself as the “anti-gym,” a place where how you feel is more important than how you look and where people get a lot of support to achieve their goals. LIVE WELL is a medical fitness clinic that’s built on the belief that exercise is medicine. Specializing in safe, supervised exercise and healthy-lifestyle coaching for people who have chronic health conditions or want to prevent them; it helps its members make sustainable changes to their lifestyle to live healthier and happier lives. Members come to LIVE WELL Exercise Clinic for many different reasons, whether to lose weight, lower cholesterol, have more energy, combat stress or to continue playing tennis until they’re 80 years old. So how is it doing? We asked three local residents to tell us how LIVE WELL Exercise Clinic has changed their lives. Elizabeth from Coquitlam has a chronic lung condition, and knows that exercise plays a key role in her independence and quality of life.

“Keeping active to stay as healthy as possible is key to my independence and quality of life”. “Exercising is especially difficult during the winter months when it is more difficult to get outside,” she explains. “Other programs have given me little direct support and everyone followed the same routines.” Aged 80, Elizabeth joined LIVE WELL in January to see if the program would be a good fit. When that ended, she signed up for a year. “The staff made me feel very welcome and they were always happy to explain an exercise in an encouraging way. I also liked that newcomers were introduced to the group and we were given pep talks on eating and attitudes to health, as well as health tips. The attitude in the small group was positive and friendly and people were cheered for wins they made, however small they might seem to others.” After just a few weeks Elizabeth started to feel the difference in herself, but alongside the improved fitness she has also appreciated the clinical aspect of LIVE WELL services. Personalized expertise and support are key aspects of LIVE WELL. The clinics are staffed by clinical exercise physiologists and kinesiologists. Experts in their field, the team create personalized plans specifically tailored to each member’s needs. They also monitor vitals during sessions and work closely with members’ doctors to create plans that are geared towards improving their health, something that is key for someone like Elizabeth. “Some days it is really hard to get myself to the class but I always feel relaxed and energized after-

wards. It is a comfort to me to get regular checks on blood pressure and blood oxygen levels and to have the really great young staffers monitoring to see that the exercises are performed correctly. I also like the regular reviews of performance and the sense this gives of moving towards better fitness.”

“We are at different levels of fitness, but because our workouts are personalized, we can work out together”. “In January, I had a health scare which ended up with a trip to the ER. I knew that I needed to do something to improve my health,” explains Karen. “I had wanted to get in better shape, and had tried traditional gyms, but I’ve never been an athletic type person, and gyms intimidated me. I’d go there and just not know what to do. I had thought about getting a personal trainer, but, again, the thought intimidated me… plus, with my health issues, I didn’t think a trainer would really understand my needs.” In need of a solution that fitted her unique needs Karen signed up for LIVE WELL along with her fiancé Don, and says that being able to work out together has been a huge part of the positive experience she has had so far. Karen and Don are not alone. Indeed, it’s not uncommon for members to enter the program as a couple or with a friend, and whether it’s someone you already know or a friend you make by joining, it’s just part of the support network that’s built into the LIVE WELL community. “The staff is amazing. They check in with me every time I come to work out, and you can tell they really care,” Karen explains. “They do a great job of making me feel welcome, and like I belong there. They encourage me, celebrate my successes, and help me when I’m feeling discouraged.

The best part is the ways they check in with me to see how the exercise program they’ve designed for me is working, and tweak it to keep me moving forward.” Like all LIVE WELL members Karen has had her workouts specifically designed to suit her unique health and fitness needs. Taking into account her abilities and limitations, her routines are constantly evolving to keep up with her changing health. And after just a few months Karen is already enjoying the benefits. “The big thing I’ve noticed is the improvement to my mood. I’ve been dealing with chronic mental health issues for over 20 years, and I finally feel like I’ve got it under control. My energy levels have increased, I’m more flexible and my balance has improved,” she says. “The biggest change, however, has been in my mindset. For the first time in my life, I feel like I deserve to be healthy! My self-confidence has improved immensely.”

All of the LIVE WELL members that we spoke to talked about how important the community aspect of the experience was to them, and for Diane it was one of the biggest reasons why she has kept up with her exercise regimen. “There is nothing like it,” she says. “Anyone can sign up and go to a gym, but the gym does not provide nearly the same amount of support. At LIVE WELL you are not just a number, you matter. I have never felt that what I do matters as much as I have in this clinic. They make me feel like we are a family, working towards the same goal. Together, we are a team.” It’s not just exercise that Diana is benefiting from either. As part of their clinically-focused approach to wellness LIVE WELL also offers advice on healthy eating, with on-site health coaches helping members to understand the role that nutrition can play in a healthy lifestyle. “I am getting the exercise I need and learning about simple tips for eating healthy,” explains

Diana’s reserved sessions at Live Well Excercise Clinic help keep her consistent.

Diana. “We talk about common nutrition mistakes and solutions to these mistakes, as well as portion sizes. It is always great information to take home with you. LIVE WELL is a community of like-minded individuals who all present with nutritional challenges, but we as a team of members “LIVE WELL has shown me how support each other through sharing recipes and suggestions to better our habits and it is amazing strong I really am and what to see how LIVE WELL has positively changed my this body of mine can do”. relationship with food.” If you are trying to lose weight, reduce your We’ve all signed up for a gym with the very best cholesterol, decrease your blood pressure, or just of intentions, only for our best laid plans to fall by want to get healthier LIVE WELL Exercise Clinic the wayside.

MARINE MAMMAL RESEARCH CENTRE

‘Once this shuts down, you know, it’s gone... The animals are going to be moved’ Future of unique research facility in Port Moody is in jeopardy STEfAN LAbbé slabbe@tricitynews.com

S

itka has brown, bulbous eyes, slippery skin and breath that makes you want to pass the next time you’re out for sushi. At roughly 230 kg (500 lb.), she’s the biggest of the four Steller sea lions housed at the Marine Mammal Research Station floating off the end of Reed Point Marina in Port Moody, and together with the other three pinniped residents, is among the most highly trained sea lions in the world. As part of her morning routine, trainer Nigel Waller coaxes Sitka out of the openwater pens with a bucket of squid and herring. She obliges, hurling herself across the dock and onto a scale before slipping on a neon-green reflective vest fitted with a GPS and radio tracker “just in case.” The boat-side swim, the battery of handstands, diving, jumping — even sticking out her tongue — are all part of a well-honed routine to prime the animals for controlled open-water experiments found nowhere else on Earth. The rigorous training lets the team push into the deep waters of Indian Arm, where it can test the nuances and limits of the animals’ feeding, diving and breathing patterns in their natural surroundings. In many ways, the research station forms the missing link between observation in the wild and experiment in captivity. It has guided conservation efforts as far away as Alaska, and as the scientists look to the future, they hope to use the Port Moody facility to gauge the effects of climate change, pollution and dwindling fish stocks closer to home. Now, at this critical moment, funding for the 16-year-old facility has slipped and its continued existence is in jeopardy.

ON THE ROCKS

Physiologically, Steller sea lions are the bears of the sea. They’re omnivores, somewhat choosey, but feeding on whatever catches their interest. They live in two big populations, one in B.C., and a second historically larger group stretching from eastern Japan through the Aleutian archipelago and down the Alaskan coast. By the early 1990s, both pop-

“We’re the link between laboratory studies in an aquarium and studies in the wild.”

ulations plummeted. While it was clear overfishing and culls had affected their once vast numbers, scientists struggled to understand exactly how the world’s largest population of the world’s largest sea lion continued to dwindle. In 2003, the situation was desperate, so marine biologists from UBC teamed up with the Vancouver Aquarium to launch what research biologist David Rosen calls a one-of-akind research facility, a testing ground to document both the choices sea lions make in the wild and how the limits of their unique biology affect survival. Since the Vietnam War, the U.S. navy had run secret training programs with the Steller’s smaller Californian cousins — deploying them to protect navy assets from swimmer attacks and spot sea mines — but few had tried to train the larger, seemingly more ferocious Steller in the service of conservation. “We’re the link between lab-

oratory studies in an aquarium and studies in the wild,” said Rosen. “We’re the only people getting those types of answers.” Over the last 16 years, the body of scientific research coming out of Port Moody has been instrumental in shaping the species recovery plan for endangered Steller sea lions in Alaska. But where money was once plentiful, secured funding dries up at the end of this year. From there, survival is month-tomonth. Money occasionally trickles in from unlikely sources: The Disney-backed series Siren films at the floating laboratory, a drama throwing marine biologists, locals and predatory mermaids into vicious conflict as the toothy creatures “return to reclaim their right to the ocean.” “I guess it’s no different than trying to keep the family farm going. You go right to the bitter end, and do what you can,” said director Andrew Trites.

At thousands of dollars a year to feed a single sea lion, operational costs are piling up just as Canadian Pacific Railway prepares to begin construction on a $31-million track expansion project adjacent to the Reed Point facility. CP Rail’s project permit application for the Cascade Capacity Expansion Project, as it’s known, is vague on direct effects to the research facility, and staff are still trying to understand how the extension of the rail embankment will affect the floating docks 25 metres away. Construction is slated to begin Nov. 1 and, according to the project’s permit application, strong, low-frequency sounds will accompany the work day and night, seven days a week for two months. “These animals are sensitive,” Rosen said. “In the past, a company was testing sonar in the waters near Port Moody. The sea lions were visibly disturbed by the sounds travelling through the water.” In one scenario, CP told Trites the company would need to detach the facility and float it to another location so the rail company could bring in a barge to dump fill along the shoreline. The Tri-City News reached out to CP but did not receive a comment and was instead directed back to official documents.

“You’re moving a large facility. You never know what’s going to happen,” said Rosen. “This is crunch time.”

bAD TIMING

The need for more openwater research has never been stronger, according to the facility’s proponents. While in the past, the research station has helped sketch out a map for conservation in Alaska, today, the Steller sea lion population in B.C. continues to grow and some suspect its relative abundance may be affecting chinook salmon stocks, the key food source for endangered southern resident killer whales. But it’s not just an increase in Steller sea lions that’s to blame. Warming waterways and seas, along with habitat destruction, are also squeezing the already decimated salmon populations up and down the coast. The federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans is predicting this to be one of the worst years for B.C. salmon on record and, in a recent report, noted climate change is almost certainly a major factor. Zoom in to the waterways of the Tri-Cities and local streamkeepers have already seen major die-offs this year at Hoy Creek in Coquitlam and Noons Creek in Port Moody. Pollutants, like climate change and years of over-fishing, can

quickly throw the marine food chain out of whack. “With development comes pollution and a change in ocean conditions,” said Rosen. “The effects on the waters around Port Moody are really amplified because of the shallow water.” Beyond seal lions, the experience and location of the research station place it in the perfect position to understand this critical ecological moment, said Rosen. Locally, that means measuring the impacts of development — including industrial pollutants, boat traffic and how increased human populations can affect water quality — on Harbour seals, salmon, and increasingly, transient orcas. “We’d like to start as soon as possible,” said Rosen. “We need this open-ocean laboratory in order to be able to answer those types of questions.” Should it close, the institutional knowledge and experience built up over the last 16 years is something Rosen said will be near impossible to get back. “You can’t mothball it and then hope to start it up again when you get funding. Once this shuts down, you know, it’s gone. The equipment is gone, the people are gone, the animals are going to be moved somewhere else,” Rosen said. “Once it goes, it’s gone.”

LeGaL CannaBIS

First local, legal pot shop open in PoCo burb shop on Mary Hill Bypass open, second next week JanIS CLeuGH jcleugh@tricitynews.com

The Tri-Cities has its first private pot shop and the second will open next week. Yesterday (Wednesday), burb started selling recreational cannabis at its flagship store, located at Broadway Street and Mary Hill bypass, after being awarded two licences last Tuesday by the BC Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch. Its “express” shop is in PoCo Place, a strip mall at Westwood Street and Lougheed Highway. The burb outlets will be the third and fourth private cannabis stores in the Surrey/ Fraser Valley jurisdiction; the others are in Maple Ridge and Chilliwack. Port Coquitlam resident Steve Dowsley, who co-owns burb with PoCo’s John Kaye and Clayton Chessa, a Surrey resident, said the company also plans to open a third

cannabis retail store in Port Moody; the deadline for rezoning applications is Monday, based on LCRB approval. By 2021, burb’s goal is to open eight retail stores in B.C., Dowsley said. During a sneak peek of its 3,700-sq. ft. Broadway Street outlet Tuesday — just as the first shipment of governmentcontrolled pot arrived and before the grand opening

Saturday — Dowsley and Chessa talked about burb’s business model, the products it will sell prior to the roll-out of Cannabis Legalization 2.0 on Oct. 17 (when edibles, concentrates and topicals will become available to the public) and how they intend to make their mark in the Tri-Cities. Under PoCo’s municipal regulations, burb will be required to give a $2,500 annual

scholarship to a graduating student in the city as well as a $5,000 charitable donation to the Port Coquitlam Community Foundation for each of its stores. As well, it will follow through on its promise to pay a living wage to its fulltime employees and help with community projects. Recently, employees cleaned up the shores of the Coquitlam River and supported a cancer fund-

raiser, Chessa said. Mayor Brad West told The Tri-City News Tuesday he’s pleased burb’s licence came through, although he won’t be purchasing any of its goods. He also anticipates an influx of visitors to PoCo because of the “novelty factor.” Initially, burb will have about 40 staff at its two locations, which will be open Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. One worker will be at the door to welcome guests, check IDs and scan to see if visitors are under the influence, Dowsley said. All burb workers have gone through security training, Dowsley said. As part of its provincial application, burb submitted a 75-page security report to the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General; another lengthy report on financing went to the Ministry of Attorney General. As for its products, burb will offer a rotating crop of 18 strains — with varying degrees of TCH, CBD and tepenes — plus pre-rolled joints, oils, gel capsules and sprays. It’ll also have iPads for customers to

browse through the inventory, and smell jars at the counter. Its product will also be for sale online via shopburb.com. But burb’s apparel, which it sold prior to getting the licence, is no longer for sale. Dowsley said the LCRB doesn’t allow clothes to mix with cannabis in retail outlets. Meanwhile, the two public cannabis stores also approved by PoCo city council won’t be open for a while. The BC Cannabis Store at Oxford Crossing, in the same area as No Frills, has yet to see a shovel in the ground. “At this time, we have no firm dates on when this store will open,” said Kate Bilney, a spokesperson for the BC Liquor Distribution Branch. And LDB’s bid for its Nicola Avenue location will return to city council for another public hearing; on July 23, council returned that application to city staff to provide more details on the size of the proposed outlet. As for the production of goods made with cannabis extracts, PoCo city council will consider first reading of a zoning bylaw amendment at its Oct. 8 meeting.

Kids can climate strike – with a note from parents SD43 sends out letter on climate strike activities tomorrow

Friday’s global climate strike, SD43 is encouraging its teachers to discuss environmental issues and current events with those who remain behind. In a letter to students and families Tuesday, superintendent Patricia Gartland said schools will remain open and staff and students are expected to attend. The strike and the UN Climate Action

GRanT GRanGeR ggranger@tricitynews.com

While School District 43 students with parental permission may participate in

Summit being held in New York will likely be a topic of discussion raised by teachers. But as they can for any other reason, parents and guardians can pull their children from school as long as they let the school know. If they do so, they should discuss with their teachers what class work may be missed, Gartland said in the letter.

“Supporting students to explore and learn about their passions is a priority for the school district and the district would never discourage students from exercising their freedom of expression and opinion, whether it be in the area of climate change or any other topic of importance to today’s youth,” Gartland wrote. “Our mission though is to en-

sure quality learning opportunities for all students of all ages and it is therefore imperative that the district be open and available to those families and students that wish to attend school on Friday.” The district’s position is similar to ones announced by the Surrey and Vancouver school districts, although Vancouver Trustee Allan

Wong is reported to have said at its board meeting Monday even those without permission slips from home will not be punished. The two-page letter also detailed the district’s environmental initiatives, including its goal of making the new school planned for Burke Mountain “the greenest school in Canada.”

2 trustees, 2 staff directors them, Hobson said the district won’t be adding any staff to run its foundation. Tuesday, the board confirmed the foundation’s registration with the province under the BC Societies Act and as a charity with Revenue Canada. It also adopted a constitution and bylaws. All money currently being held for district scholarship and bursary funds will be transferred to the foundation. The SD43 report said a formal plan

Hobson said although most of the revenue the district gets comes from the province, the senior government has never supported bursaries or scholarships on a local level. The foundation will be similar to those established by hospitals to raise funds; those bodies, such as Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation, typically have an executive director and full-time staff. But unlike

to promote fundraising for the foundation is in the works. Hobson, Port Coquitlam Trustee Christine Pollock, district superintendent Patricia Gartland and secretary-treasurer Chris Nicolls are named as foundation directors in the documentation submitted to the province.

SPELL PARQ FOR

The director of Port Moody Public Library, Marc Saunders, said a renovation last year to add more computer work stations and reconfigure the information desk and study areas was only a “stopgap” as the facility is running out of space. MARIO BARTEL/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A CHANCE TO WIN UP TO

PORT MOODY PUBLIC LIBRARY

New, larger library for Port Moody? Despite renos, library isn’t big enough to meet needs: director MARIO BARTeL mbartel@tricitynews.com

The director of Port Moody Public Library (PMPL) says the recently renovated facility is bursting at the seams. Sept. 17, Marc Saunders, and several members of the library board, made a pitch to city council’s committee of the whole for a new, larger facility. Saunders said it is important to keep the issue in the forefront after the results of a special community opinion poll that was part of last October’s civic election indicated voters’ opposition — 53% to 47% — to selling the old fire hall property at the corner of Ioco Road and Murray Street to a private developer. A new library was part of a mixed-use development that had been envisioned for the site. But Saunders said he and his board members haven’t given up on the location that is adjacent to Port Moody’s civic complex where the current library, city hall and the recreation centre are already situated. In fact, he makes a point of walking past it every day, envisioning what the fenced, overgrown lot that has become a refuge for some city equipment, could become with a gleaming new library as its focal point. “A library would do exceptionally well on that corner,”

Saunders told The Tri-City News. He said Port Moody’s library has been over capacity for years compared to other libraries with a similar profile in communities of a comparable size, such as New Westminster, West Vancouver and Penticton. A 2005 study by Cornerstone Planning Group recommended then the city required a new 28,000-sq. ft. library. Another study, in 2017, recommended a 42,500-sq. ft. facility. In 2018, the number of participants using programs per square metre of capacity at PMPL was more than double its closest comparable library, in the city of North Vancouver. That same year, Port Moody library checked out more than 550 items per square metre, compared to just under 250 in Penticton, the next busiest library of a similar size and demographic. Saunders said a renovation that closed the 13,000sq. ft. library for more than two months in the winter of 2017/’18 created a bit more room as shelving was reconfigured and other components like the children’s area were rejigged. But the new carpeting, information desk and digital work stations couldn’t address ongoing complaints from patrons about noise and the limitations of the library’s collection of 84,000 titles. “It’s just a stopgap,” Saunders said of the renovation, adding the cramped quarters aren’t just hard on users, it also taxes staff.

“Normally you have an ebb and flow but it’s getting to the point of continuous stress,” he said. More importantly, Saunders said, the lack of space is preventing the library from undertaking initiatives that will help it meet the changing needs of the community, such as art programming, an innovation centre for business start-ups, astronomy programs, sound studios for podcasts and even meeting space for local clubs. “We want to be able to offer different types of spaces that can be used in a variety of ways,” he said. Mayor Rob Vagramov said library renewal “is a priority for the city,” that hasn’t been diminished by the result of the 2018 non-binding referendum question. But Coun. Hunter Madsen said the former fire hall site may no longer be the most appropriate location for a new facility that he suggested could land at Pioneer Park, across Knowles Street from the civic complex. “The density of the city might be shifting,” he said, adding even if voters had accepted the idea of selling the fire hall property for private development, it might take five to 10 years to realize a new library. In the meantime, Saunders said, PMPL will continue to work with council towards a solution while making the best of its tight situation. “It is a long conversation,” he said. “Hopefully this is a path forward.”

menstrual products

Menstrual products to be free in SD43 All School District 43 schools will provide free menstrual products to students in school bathrooms likely by the end of the year. SD43 is following through on a provincial order announced in April to provide the products, the aim of which is to end “period poverty” and reduce barriers to accessing education. Dispensers for the free products will likely be available starting between November and December, according to a plan described at last week’s board of education meeting. The cost to providing two dispensers at each middle school and three at each secondary school, plus two types of products, is expected to cost between $80,000 and $120,000 depending on the installation challenges at each school. At each elementary school, baskets of products will be provided. And so far, the money to pay for the materials hasn’t arrived, according to SD43 officials; more details on funding is expected in the coming weeks. However, earlier press releases stated $300,000 will

be provided for B.C. schools for start-up funds, which, if SD43’s costs are in the $120,000 range, would take up a third of the provincial funding, should that money become available. The province had promised to help with start-up funding for the initiative, which follows a United Way campaign called Period Promise that advocates for access to free menstrual products. Among the issues the SD43 Student Leadership Council Advisory Group wants addressed with the new ministerial order are adequate containers for disposal, quality of products and environmental sustainability, sensitivity to demographic regions of the school district and socioeconomic needs, placement of dispensers in universal (gender-neutral) washrooms as much as possible to reduce stigma, and dialogue with teachers to be sensitive to “restricting students from leaving classes.” Currently, SD43 provides free menstrual products if students ask for them from teachers or counsellors.

WILDLIFE IN THE TRI-CITIES

New oversight is sought for conservation officers UVic report critical of the way BCCOS makes decisions STEFaN Labbé slabbe@tricitynews.com

The British Columbia Conservation Officer Service took heat this summer for killing problem bears in the Tri-Cities. Now, BCCOS is developing an external oversight mechanism that would deal with complaints about its officers’ actions, according to the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change. The ministry provided no details on how external oversight might role out and a spokesperson turned down requests for interviews with The Tri-City News. The news comes a day after a critical report was released by the University of Victoria’s Environmental Law Centre, in collaboration with the Rainforest Conservation Foundation, criticizing BCCOS for both a lack of independent civilian oversight and for failing to balance public safety with appropriate restraint in the killing of large animals. Under the current system, if someone wants to file a complaint over the actions of a conservation officers — including the killing of a bear — they must complain to the agency directly. That means there is no independent arbiter and no appeals process, claims the report. “The essential problem is that the final decision is made by the BCCOS itself,” the report states. “This self-investigative process does little to bolster public confidence in the BCCOS and is inconsistent with how we hold members of other law enforcement agencies — like police officers — accountable.” To improve oversight, the report recommends expanding the role of the BC Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner — which is tasked with overseeing the province’s municipal police forces — to include the BCCOS. Alternatively, oversight could be improved by putting the agency under the watch of the Environmental Appeal Board. In the short term, the report recommends the provincial government improve the internal complaint and appeal process to create an automatic paper trail for public com-

plaints and make the results of those grievances readily available to the public. In an emailed statement to The Tri-City News, a spokesperson for BCCOS said the agency recognizes maintaining public trust and confidence is important, and that third-party oversight could help.

ETHICS QUESTION

Beyond oversight and transparency, the report argues that conservation officers need to be given more direction when it comes to using lethal force to solve human-wildlife conflicts. The problem, it notes, is that officers are given too much discretion to kill large carnivores, something that has divided public opinion in many B.C. communities, including the Tri-Cities, where humans and wildlife come in regular contact with one another. The report highlights a highprofile case in 2016 in which a conservation officer euthanized an orphaned bear cub even though a wildlife rehabilitation centre agreed to take in the animal. And in 2015, a BCCOS officer refused to kill two cubs after officers killed the mother saying they were habituated to humans; the cubs were later rehabilitated and released into the wild. In the Tri-Cities, conserva-

tion officers have killed more than a dozen bears this year, and in one high-profile case reported by The Tri-City News, three Coquitlam residents were charged with obstructing officers as they hunted a mother bear and its cubs. Under current legal regime, there is no provision that expressly authorizes an officer to kill wildlife but there’s also nothing that prevents an officer from doing so. That means government policy as well as an officer’s training and discretion act as the only limit to how and when they kill. “The approach is a very anachronistic one and one that relies on lethal control,” Chris Genovali, executive director of Raincoast Conservation Foundation, told The Tri-City News. “We need a more restrained approach to using lethal force and a better understanding of the science of wildlife behaviour.” When it comes to dealing with human-wildlife conflict, the conservation officers’ only official guidance comes from the procedure manual titled Responding to Conflicts with Large Carnivores, which covers such animals as bears, cougars, coyotes and wolves, according to the report. The report calls on government to conduct a thorough re-

view of the procedure manual “to ensure protocols are clear and that they align with public expectations,” and to review whether non-lethal measures — such as relocation, rehabilitation and hazing — are up to date with the current scientific understanding of what’s effective. When using lethal force, it recommends exercising as much restraint as possible. “We must have a policy that is acceptable both to wildlife enforcement officials and the public,” it states.

SaFETY CONCERNS

In its emailed response to The Tri-City News, the BCCOS said that public safety is its number one concern, that its decision-making process is already guided by policy, procedures and scientific data. But improving policy around human-wildlife conflict is not enough, argues the report. Instead, the government should transform improved policy into legally binding restrictions on how and when a conservation officer can kill a wild animal. That could mean restricting all use of lethal force, including only permitting an officer to discharge their guns when life or serious injury are on the line. “We need to start to manage human behaviour as opposed to attempting to manage wildlife behaviour,” said Genovali, pointing to limiting human attractants like open garbage bins. “I think that’s one of the things that the [BC] Conservation Officer Service has been doing that is very positive.”

Tony Parsons shares his Hearing Health Story.

Cash needed for more Metro parks Widgeon among the areas targeted by Metro Van Parks Diane stranDberg dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

For the price of a latte, TriCity residents could get more access to parks and green space — including access to Widgeon Marsh Regional Park Reserve in Coquitlam. But with so many demands on people’s pocketbooks, Anmore Mayor John McEwen said he hopes taxpayers recognize the value of creating more trails, picnic sites and wildlife preservation areas. “The challenge is we need to be able to buy more land, and the land value has gone up so much more substantially, it costs more,” said McEwen, who chairs Metro Vancouver’s parks committee. This week the committee considered a $4-per-house-

hold tax increase, starting next year, to raise funds for parkland acquisition and development, with additional $4 annual hikes to 2024. Money raised would generate $27.7 million for parks and park development in the region, which already operates parks in Coquitlam and Port Moody. According to Metro Vancouver, 1,286 hectares are needed to expand and develop the regional park system but Metro doesn’t have enough money to cover the costs. McEwen said he understands people don’t like tax hikes but, with more people living in condos in dense urban corridors, they need space to be able to unwind and connect with nature. Park acquisition is, therefore, a critical need for quality of life while preserving nature is important to prevent the worst excesses of climate change, he said.

“Hopefully, if we could secure this land, it wouldn’t be developed, [and] we could put in nature-ways and walkways. It would be amazing and benefit the region,” McEwen told The Tri-City News. Already, local parks are showing signs of stress from over use, said McEwen, pointing to early closures to Sasamat and Buntzen lakes during summer weekends, and he said increasing the parks acquisition budget would also raise funds to develop the Widgeon Park reserve. The park is in the planning stage, but there is no money for improvements. Without the additional money, it would take 63 years to buy the properties, but McEwen said he hopes the public isn’t willing to wait that long. “I see people embracing this and the importance of how we grow our green space.”

CHAMBER NEWS

MAYORS’ SHARE REGIONAL ISSUES AT BBQ Well, summer is over and things are starting to get busy in the local business community. At the municipal level, the Chamber hosted our annual Mayors BBQ earlier this month. All three cities and both villages that make up our wonderful community were represented by their mayors.

Michael Hind

It was an entertaining night for all who attended. Behind the laughs and banter, a number of issues facing our community were brought forward. The Fremont Connector - which bridges the emerging community of Burke Mountain in Coquitlam and the Fremont area of Port Coquitlam with access to the Mary Hill Bypass and the Lougheed Highway - remains an un-resolved issue at this time. This is an important north/south connection within the region that will need to be built to accommodate the huge growth coming in Northeast Coquitlam.

Belcarra has a major issue with it’s emergency water supply. The city’s current reserve can only hold enough water to fight a fire for around one hour before it is depleted, and the pumping capacity to refill it is not sufficient for the community and its emergency needs. The consequences of this could be disastrous should a major fire break out in this heavily wooded community and spread to the surrounding forest. CEO

Anmore is anticipating a proposal to come to council later this year for development of a 52-acre parcel of property in it’s part of the Ioco Lands. The project would be the largest single development in the village’s history and perhaps bring some retail and commercial space to the area. It was revealed that Coquitlam does not have a plan at this time to allow retail marijuana stores within the city. But neighbouring Port Coquitlam has a process in place for applications and is awaiting Provincial approval of some of the applications. Port Moody is dealing with perennial concerns around transportation. There is added density along Clarke and Murray Street with the approval of Westport Village by Barnet Highway, and the rising popularity of Brewers Row and Rocky Point Park as regional tourist spots. All are putting pressure on the already congested roads in Port Moody centre. In conjunction, through traffic is only going to increase along St. John’s Street. The Chamber’s hope is that all our communities can work together to find that common ground that works for all busineess and residents of the Tri-Cities. We will keep working towards that goal.

New group to knit social connections Knit2gether Coquitlam focus both friendship & craftsmanship Mario Bartel mbartel@tricitynews.com

F

ran Grant admits she’s not a very good knitter. It took her 15 years to learn how to purl, the opposite stitch to knitting that, when combined, creates a pattern in the fabric. Thus, her initiative to create a new knitting group, Knit2gether Coquitlam, which will meet the second Tuesday evening of every month at

Fran Grant says she’s far from being an expert knitter but she’s organizing a new knitting group at the Poirier branch of the Coquitlam Public Library mainly for the social interaction. MARIO BARTEL/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Coquitlam Public Library’s Poirier branch, is more about the social interaction the fibre art can foster. Dishcloths and pot holders will be created, maybe even a sweater or two by more skilled knitters, but the gatherings will be a chance to meet likeminded people sharing their passion for yarns as well as exchanging ideas and inspiration, she said. “It’s just very sociable,” Grant said of knitting. “So many people want something to do and somewhere to go.” Grant said the repetitive, almost-automatic, nature of knitting is conducive to simultaneous chatter.

“Knitters are pretty friendly,” she said. “They’ll talk to you about their knitting, how they made it, where they got the wool.” Grant said she learned how to knit from her mom. She said she loved the craft’s simplicity, which allowed her to progress her skill at her own pace. And while that skill never really moved beyond simple projects like coffee cozies, Grant said she loves thinking about the smiles she gets from recipients of her endeavours. “You feel quite content,” she said. Grant’s motivation to start a knitting club in Coquitlam

came from her years-long involvement with a similar group in Burnaby. Like that group, she hopes this new branch will also embrace the occasional collective effort to create projects like little hats for newborn babies at hospitals, hats and scarves for the homeless or “twiddle muffs” that can help people with autism cope with anxiety. Knitters are like that, Grant said. “They’re doing something they’re happy to be doing.”

BOOK OF THE WEEK n Sex is a Funny Word by Cory Silverberg & Fiona Smyth n Reviewed by Fiona Watson, Port Moody Public Library

With more emphasis on consent, sexuality and gender identity than ever before, the landscape of sexual education is changing and kids and adults alike may feel left behind. Sex is a Funny Word by Cory Silverberg and Fiona Smyth is here to help. This book uses a combination of bright pictures, comics and short paragraphs narrated by four children diverse in skin-tone (purple, orange, blue), gender identity and ability to approach sex in an open, ageappropriate way. Its contents include: What is Sex — which explores three definitions of the word; Learn about Bodies — text and comics focusing on the diversity of bodies coupled with illustrations of body parts; Boys, Girls, All of Us — a primer on gender identity that prepares readers for contemporary vocabulary used to discuss gender; Touch — which includes building blocks for consent and discussion of “secret touch;” Talking about Sex — demystifying sex as a bad word; and Crushes, Love and Relationships — which explores topics outside of romantic love, including self-love and family love.  Nuanced, non-judgmental and accessible, this is a book you can give to your child to read on their own or that you can read with your children to spark discussion. With thoughtful discussion questions at the end of each chapter and a helpful glossary, this resource is one you can return to over time, using it as the topics feel appropriate in your household. Be prepared for this read to generate more questions than it answers — this is a resource for helping your child learn to think about sex and sexuality in a healthy way. Sex is a Funny Word is best for children in Grades 3 to 6 but may also be useful to parents and educators looking to get in step with topics in contemporary sexual education.

Notice of 2019 Tax Sale

Eagle Ridge Hospital doctors Mike Mostrenko and Ali Abdalvand, head of the emergency department, in front of the emergency ward at the Port Moody hospital on Guildford Way. JANIS CLEUGH/THE TRI-CITY NEWS FUNDRAISERS

Help pay for bigger ER at gala Saturday Fundraiser to feature a 3D ‘walk-through’ of planned ER dept. JANIS ClEUgh jcleugh@tricitynews.com

If you want to get a sneak peek at what the expanded emergency department at Eagle Ridge Hospital will look like in two years, grab a ticket to the foundation’s upcoming gala. The 29th annual fundraiser, sponsored in part by The TriCity News and to be held Sept. 28 at the Executive Plaza Hotel, will feature a 3D video “walkthrough” of what’s to come. “It’s a new design and it will be welcoming, quieter and calmer,” said Dr. Ali Abdalvand, head of the hospital’s emergency department. “It will be something that will surprise the public.” Opened in 1988 — four years after the Port Moody hospital went up — the ER was meant to accommodate up to 20,000 a patients at year; now, because of the region’s growth, it sees about three times that number annually, a spokesperson said. Many of the patients are either very young or elderly, Abdalvand told The Tri-City News. And the design team, which includes Dr. Michael Mostrenko, an ER physician, has tried to ensure their special needs — as well as residents with multicultural back-

grounds — are met when they arrive in search of immediate care for themselves, family or friends. Abdalvand said the design team also includes a patient advocate who has brought forward ideas so all the community is represented in the renovated space. “She made sure we weren’t overlooking the important things as we are only on one side of the gurney,” he said last Friday. In January, ground officially broke to begin the phased, $27.6-million modernization that is expected to conclude in the spring of 2021; the first space to open — scheduled for December — will be for health information services and its former unit will be converted for cardiology. Abdalvand said while the construction is a challenge, his goal is to ensure there’s no disruption to care. Of the transition, he said: “We think the people who live in this area deserve better. We are trying to give them what they deserve as this department is our front door.” The Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation’s executive director, Charlene GiovannettiKing, said the foundation is now at 72% of its $5-million target and she hopes the gala will top it up to 80% (the province is paying the balance of $22.6 million). Another fundraising push is set to launch after the Christmas break. • For tickets to the Evening of Caring gala Sept. 28 or to donate, email kailah@erhf.ca.

CIVIC AWARENESS

Kids & teens: Make art, help democracy Young artists sought for ‘Democracy and Me’ competition The province is looking to B.C.’s artistic kids to help promote civic awareness in youth. The legislature and the office of the Lieutenant Governor are asking young British Columbians to enter an art contest called “Democracy and Me.” The intent is to encourage the province’s youth “to reflect on the importance of community connections, civic engagement and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and democracy through the

creation of visual art,” according to a press release. “This art contest provides a unique opportunity to celebrate the vibrancy of our democracy and further strengthen connections between our public institutions and young people in this province, while at the same time also encouraging youth to express themselves through visual arts,” said Lt.-Gov. Janet Austin in the release. Entries will be accepted in three categories: kindergarten to Grade 4; Grades 5 to 8; and Grades 9 to 12. The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria will provide help in judging. The winning entries in each category will be displayed in the legislature

Imagine... The Freedom & Security You Deserve Independent Living...

and winning artists will receive a trip to Victoria in May 2020 to be introduced in the legislature and given a tour along with a lunch hosted by Austin at Government House. Submission deadline is Jan. 31, 2020. All contest details, including how to participate and information for teachers, are available at democracyandme.ca.

COMMUNITY BRIEFS

Mountain View school library needs help The library at Mountain View elementary school in Burquitlam will get a boost in funding after being adopted by a book store in Lougheed Town Centre. As part of the Indigo Love of Ready Foundation’s Adopt a School program, according to a press release, the Coles store in the Burnaby mall will “provide support for muchneeded additional library resources” to Mountain View, one of 182 high-needs elementary schools adopted by

local stores for the fundraising initiative. The release noted Mountain View’s library budget is less than $30 per student for the year so the extra funds will allow it to upgrade its collection of materials. Supporters of the program, which runs until Oct. 6, can make a donation at the store or online at indigo.ca. For every book purchased from the registry, the company will provide an additional copy of the book to the school.

Pension seminar on Monday in Coquitlam Anyone feeling it’s time to leave the workforce may be interested in a pre-retirement primer next week in Coquitlam. Service Canada will present the seminar on Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Old Age Security (OAS) Sept. 30 at Dogwood Pavilion (1655 Winslow Ave.). It will cover pension sharing, credit split-

ting, changes in 2012 reducing CPP if taken early, death and survivor benefits, and OAS allowance and guaranteed income benefits. The information will be delivered by Dianne Stoesz, a citizen’s services specialist. The workshop is free but pre-registration is required; call 604-927-4386 or visit any Coquitlam recreation facility.

CHILD CARE

Parents, speak up on child care needs in the Tri-Cities Online survey seeks input from parents on daycare in area Parents and caregivers interested in seeing more child care spaces in the Tri-Cities can have their voices heard through an online survey. Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody are working together to create Child Care Action Plans that will outline what the cities, service providers and other stakeholders can do to help create new spaces. In a survey running through Nov. 1, parents and guardians are being asked about their child care needs and challenges, and to provide input on potential solutions. The survey takes 15 minutes to complete and is available at www.tricitieschildcare.ca (more information is available on each city’s website: coquitlam.ca/ childcare, portcoquitlam.ca/ childcare and portmoody.ca/ childcare). The collected input will help identify gaps, set targets and find potential solutions

to the Tri-Cities child care situation, according to a press release. Development of the action plans will also include an inventory of existing child care spaces, identifying short-, medium- and long-term targets for new spaces, a survey and site visits to child care operators to collect input on possible expansion, and consultation with Fraser Health, School District 43 and organizations that serve local families. As well, Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam will hold public information sessions in October, and all three cities will co-host a solutions workshop in November for community members with an interest in child care development, including parents, guardians, child care providers and other stakeholders. Participants will have a chance to learn about and provide feedback on the recommended actions for the child care action plan. The three cities each received a $25,000 grant this past spring from the provincial Community Child Care Planning Program

Major University seeks participants for national hearing study.

through the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) to create the plans. They are working together on the project because many Tri-Cities residents cross boundaries for child care, school and other services. The action plans will build on the Tri-City Child Care Needs Assessment in 2017 and work being undertaken by the SD43’s Child Care Task Force. The draft plans are expected to be presented to city councils for consideration in early 2020.

Connect Hearing and Professor Mark Fenske at the University of Guelph are seeking participants who are over 50 years of age, have never worn hearing aids and have not had a hearing test in the last 24 months, for a hearing study that investigates factors that can influence better hearing. Study Parameters The researchers will examine listening in a range of situations, from one-on-one, to group conversations, watching TV and wider social contexts like supermarkets and other noisy environments, and how it effects connection and socialization.

Why Participate? It is estimated that 46% of people aged 45 to 87 have some degree of hearing loss, but most do not seek a solution right away. In this study you’ll be playing an important part in determining the key factors around identifying hearing loss and what influences the decision to seek treatment.

City of Coquitlam NOTICE OF PUBLIC CONSULTATION The City has received an application for a Temporary Use Permit (TUP) for a subject site within the property located at 2 King Edward Street.

This TUP would expire on October 7, 2022.

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.

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: eunkyo kim

Art 4 Life opens Saturday to tie in with Culture Days In her native South Korea, Eunkyo ‘Unky’ Kim trained in pencil and colour theory. After graduating, she worked as a designer and as a freelance illustrator. But paints weren’t regularly part of her palette back then. Now, she’s active with oils and acrylics — as well as digital media — to create “darkly humorous and sometimes creepy” images, she told the Port Moody Arts Centre, where, on Saturday, her painting Bookaholic (at left) will be featured as part of the fourweek long Art 4 Life exhibit that opens during Culture Days, a national celebration of the arts, culture and heritage in our communities. Art 4 Life ends Nov. 1. port moody arts centre

Seniors have a ‘wealth of information’ to pass down janis cleugh jcleugh@tricitynews.com

Marnie Perrin may best be known as the artistic director of the Surrey International Children’s Festival but it’s her study of how we age that’s bringing a play she created to Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre next week. Four years ago, Perrin started her Seniors Create Project at the South Granville seniors centre in Vancouver to gather stories about what it’s like for the elderly to navigate today’s world. She got the project idea as a theatre undergraduate at SFU and through discussions with her mother-in-law, who worked in a seniors’ centre, and her father-in-law, who asked her, “When did I become invisible?� He had experienced people cutting in front of him on the road and in grocery store lineups; teens also ignored him as they passed by on the street, Perrin was told. Through series of workshops, with mostly female participants, Perrin tried to understand the generational dynamics while capturing what the seniors said on film. With their words — and the help of dramaturge Natasha Nadir — Perrin turned the conversations into a one-act, four-character script. Last year, View From A Window toured at seniors’ centres to critical acclaim and, now, it’s being staged at Metro Vancouver venues, starting in Coquitlam Oct. 1. “The thing we kept hearing over and over is, ‘The younger audiences need to see this,’� said Perrin, who’s 47 and describes herself as a “senior-intraining.� “They need to hear

From film to a stage play, A View From A Window opens Oct. 1 in Coquitlam with two shows. photo submitted



A popular fall festival showcasing dozens of craft breweries will move this year from Westwood Plateau to the casino. Saturday, the Coquitlam Craft Beer Festival will have two events in the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver theatre: a matinee (noon to 3 p.m.) and an evening (7 to 10 p.m.) production. Organizer John Gerum of West Coast Experiences said his group wanted a bigger venue for its fall event to support more vendors and give guests more room to mingle; the spring edition will stay at Westwood Plateau Golf and Country Club. And, as in previous years, the organization will continue to support Team Taylor and its Ride to Conquer Cancer fundraising efforts that collect cash for the BC Cancer Foundation. Besides the 50-plus craft breweries on site, there will also be two new features to the fall gathering that’s sponsored in part by The TriCity News: the introduction of four distilleries (Wreck Beach Spirits, Queensborough, Good Times Drinks and Georgian Bay Spirits) and three cider houses (BC Tree Fruits Cider, Sea Cider Farm and Summerland Cider) plus six international food pairing stations. Gerum said his team will gauge response from the crowd to see if it should also stage a new craft distilleries festival in the Tri-Cities. Besides the biannual Coquitlam Craft Beer fests, West Coast Experiences also hosts two wine tastings: BC Uncorked, now held at the Anvil Centre in New Westminster in the spring; and the Tri-City International Wine and Festival, which will remain in Coquitlam; it’s set for Oct. 19, also at the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver.

PLATINUM SPONSORS about what seniors are experiencing and what’s to come.� For the tour that will also include performances at Presentation House Theatre in North Vancouver, the Kay Meek Arts Centre in West Vancouver, Centre Stage in Surrey, the Chilliwack Cultural Centre and The Act in Maple Ridge, Perrin has recruited actors Yvonne Adalian and Gina Stockdale — both of whom have been with her project since its inception in 2016 — as well as Richard Newman and Bernard Cuffling. In November, View From A Window will also play out at the Provincial Summit on Aging, a United Way event. Perrin said what she found in her workshops is that seniors are “empowered, vital and wanting to engage with the community. There are a lot of programs at libraries and resource centres with youth teaching seniors about technology but where’s the reverse of that? Seniors hold a lot of information but there are few public opportunities for them to pass it down.� Perrin added, “Seniors are often seen as incapable, infirm or the ‘silly grandpa.’ We need to flip that message. They’re a wealth of information. If you have your health, you can also have a full life.� View From A Window runs Oct. 1. Call 604-927-6555 or visit evergreenculturalcentre.ca.

Songs from the piano and cello Fourth year for the Bergmanns, a first for the Power Classics janis cleugh jcleugh@tricitynews.com

Piano pair Elizabeth and Marcel Bergmann launch their fourth annual Musical Mornings series next week with another Canadian piano husband-and-wife team. Anne Louise-Turgeon and Edward Turgeon — better known in classical music circles as Duo Turgeon — appear with the Bergmanns in

a salon-style concert titled Pianopoly Oct. 2, 10:30 a.m., at Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre. Speaking from Nova Scotia last week, where the Bergmann Duo and Duo Turgeon were touring, Elizabeth Bergmann said their east coast set will be the same as their upcoming west coast run, which begins in Coquitlam and continues with morning recitals in Surrey, Chilliwack, Duncan, Nanaimo and Maple Ridge. Elizabeth Bergmann said the couples met during a Florida competition 25 years ago and have often crossed

paths since. Last year, they decided to go on the road together. But the Bergmanns, who took over Musical Mornings from founder Sarah Hagen four years ago, have also lined up other prolific guest musicians to round out their new series. Tenor Benjamin Butterfield appears Nov. 27 in a concert called Wintersong; Jasper Wood dazzles with his violin

Feb. 5; and fellow UBC faculty member Jose FranchBallester showcases his clarinet skills in Clarinetastik! April 8. “Each season we try to come up with different instruments from the last season,” Elizabeth Bergmann said. “We want to make it a varied program.” As for the series, “It’s going great. We love the fact that we’re becoming friends with various audiences. You get to

know people and build relationships.” Meanwhile, the Vancouver Chamber Music Society launches its Power Classic Sundays at Evergreen, starting with the Vancouver Cello Quartet Oct. 6; it’s followed by the Manhattan Chamber Players March 15 and soloists show May 3. David Mann, Evergreen’s program manager, told The Tri-City News he met with

Kevin Park, the society’s artistic director, who wants to expand to the suburbs. “Coincidentally, I was hoping to increase our daytime programming as many members of our audience — particularly seniors — had requested it,” Mann said. For tickets to the Musical Morning and Power Classic Sundays shows, call the box office at 604-927-6555 or visit evergreenculturalcentre.ca.

SOCCER

Coquitlam player learns lessons in Lyon Metro-Ford star trains with Lyonnais Olympique Academy at special camp MARIO BARTEL mbartel@tricitynews.com

It’s a long trip from Coquitlam to Lyon, France and Sophia Ferreira made it in soccer boots. The Grade 11 student at Centennial secondary was one of a handful of Canadian players selected to attend a prestigious summer training camp sponsored by the sporting goods manufacturer adidas. The Generation adidas international program invites top players from affiliated youth clubs across North America to immerse them for a week in a professional training program in Europe. Ferreira was among 16 girls from Canada and another 33 from the United States who lived, breathed and played soccer last month with the Lyonnais Olympique women’s academy team and its coaches. Ferreira said the experience left an indelible impression. “You realize what you have to do to become pro,” she said “It’s a high standard.” But not one beyond her reach, Ferreira added. To get the invite, Ferreira

had to be nominated by her club, Coquitlam MetroFord, where she was 2018’s female player of the year after she captained her U15 Premier League team to a

cup championship. She also scored the winning goal for her high school team, the Centaurs, when they defeated Fleetwood Park secondary in the 2018 B.C. girls soccer

championship, then led the team to repeat this spring. Still, Ferreira said, the prospect of training with the best of the best of her soccer peers, in an environment where the

sport is treated as a profession even at the U19 level, was daunting. “They’re a lot more focused,” she said. “If you’re playing soccer, you’re playing

soccer and nothing else.” Ferreira, who also plays other sports, including field hockey, said the schedule of daily two-hour workouts — sometimes twice a day — was gruelling at first. “Playing soccer every day has a toll,” she said. “It was a lot more tiring.” Still, the effort paid off when the players got an opportunity to watch and work out with the professional players on Olympique Lyonnais’ first team, including the team’s retired superstar Sonia Bompastor, who also played for France’s national women’s team for 13 years. In between training sessions, the young North American players got to sightsee and tour Parc Olympique Lyonnais, the 59,000-seat stadium that hosted the women’s World Cup final earlier last summer. When the camp culminated with a competitive match between teams comprised of its participants, Ferreira said she was ready to play to her “full potential.” And that self-confidence has carried through into the early weeks of her club season, where Ferreira said she’s sharing some of the things she learned in Lyon with her Metro-Ford teammates and pushing herself to play with more composure on the ball. “It’s a different type of soccer,” she said.

The Express defeated the defending league champions, 5-1. Danny Pearson scored twice for the home team, which also got singles from James Bohn, Cooper Connell and Bradley Ong. The Express outshot the visitors, 35-13, including 14-0 in the first period. It was the second win on home ice in as many days for the Express, who also defeated the Chilliwack Chiefs, 3-2, on Saturday. Defenceman Noah De La Durantye scored the winning goal with less than four minutes left to play in the third period. Tyler Schleppe scored both of the other goals for the Express.

Developers marketing condos in troubled Hong Kong By Frank O’Brien There is debate over whether anti-government protests in Hong Kong will lead to an exodus of its residents, but Lower Mainland developers are piling into the Chinese territory to offer Canadian condos to anyone planning an exit. In Hong Kong, the vice-president of international property at Soho — Hong Kong’s version of LinkedIn, but with a focus on real estate — has noticed a sharp increase in Canadian real estate developers pitching property sales. “In the first half [of this year] there were 55 per cent more exhibitions of Canadian property in Hong Kong than in the prior half,” said Eli McGeever. “The protests have definitely played a role in it.” The developers marketing property in Hong Kong now include Enrich Developments, Shape Properties Group (which is building masterplanned communities at Lougheed and Brentwood), Westbank Corp., and Aspac, McGeever said after touring real estate exhibitions held in the city of eight million people. Each of these Metro Vancouver companies has held at least one marketing exhibition in Hong

Kong since the start of August, according to McGeever. RESIDENTS TAKING FLIGHT There is also evidence that some Hong Kong residents are preparing to depart from the city, where increasingly violent protests continue. Official Hong Kong government data shows that the number of locals seeking police checks has surged by 48 per cent this year compared with 2018. These documents, certifying no criminal record, are crucial to applying for foreign visas. Applications increased 12 per cent in June, 41 per cent in July, and 48 per cent in the first two weeks of August, compared with a year earlier, according to data released by Juwai.com. But Georg Chmiel, chairman of Juwai.com, China’s largest portal for foreign real estate, said that most departing Hong Kong residents are not looking at Canada. “There is not a mad rush among the general population of Hong Kong to acquire real estate in Canada,” Chmiel said. He said the average Hong Konger is more interested in Asian destinations, such as Malaysia, which are more accessible and affordable, and provide a faster route to residency or citizenship. There are approximately 320,000 Hong Kong

residents who already hold a Canadian passport, and Chmiel said that’s the group that is focused on Vancouver real estate. As Canadian citizens, they would not be subject to B.C.’s 20 per cent foreign buyer tax, he noted.

-

Real estate agents in Metro Vancouver have anecdotally reported increased inquiries from Hong Kong residents recently, but there is scant hard data.

UNGLESS, Brian Alwyne Brian was born on July 7, 1950 in Vancouver, BC, to Fred and Leone Ungless. His special-ed teaching career in Coquitlam schools gave him lifelong friendships with many colleagues, students and their families, who always remained precious to him. A former Yo-Yo champion and connoisseur of softserve, Brian was quirky, joyful, child-like, faithful, compassionate, helpful, and fun. He delighted people of all ages with his corny jokes, magic shows, off-key singing and guitar-playing, as well as his enjoyment of foods grown-ups shouldn’t eat. He collected many dear friends and frequently joined their families. Brian is preceded in death by his beloved parents, and is survived by his siblings Ron (Pauline), Dave (Gillian), Rob (Eileen) and Mary-Ann (Doug); nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, cousins, and his lifelong BFF/sidekick Ernie Corlett (Jennifer and family).
