THROWING NUMBERS, NOT ROCKS
GARY MCKENNA/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
A number of curlers attended a Coquitlam council committee meeting Monday at which Brian Bastien disputed figures “based on faulty financial metrics” provided to the city by a consultant that said curling is more heavily subsidized than other ice uses at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex. For more information, read the story on page 8.
THE FUTURE OF RIVERVIEW
City, province at odds on R’view Prov. can pay for staff costs: mayor GARY MCKENNA
The Tri-CiTy News
If BC Housing is intent on moving forward with a vision for the Riverview Hospital lands that includes the potential for market housing, the provincial entity should be treated
like any other developer. That was the message Monday from several Coquitlam councillors, who said the proposal outlined by BC Housing is at odds with the city’s priorities. That means that the municipal staffing costs associated with the project should be taken on by the province, according to Mayor Richard Stewart. “We are not going to sub-
sidize the province’s efforts to develop their lands any more than we would with any other developer,” he told The Tri-City News. “It is a non-starter that a development that isn’t our priority should be funded by us.” Stewart’s comments align with those of several other council members, including Brent Asmundson, who said the city’s planning department “is running at full tilt.”
He added that the Riverview file would likely require a three-year project team, which would be a large expense for the city, particularly given the development taking place on Burke Mountain and along the Evergreen Extension. Having an outside entity take on the costs of planning a project not deemed a priority by the city is not unusual. For example, last summer
Chevron put forward a proposal asking the city to allow self-serve gas pumps at its two Coquitlam stations. When council decided it could not devote the staff resources to analyzing the changes, the company was told to join other members of its industry in bringing a comprehensive plan back to the city. see ‘BREAK-EVEN’, page 6

Coffee and sharing at seniors’ cafe Weekly group is for older clients of Share food bank
ADDITIONAL SUPPORTS FOR SENIORS Share Family and Community Services offers a number of programs targeted to seniors, including: • Better at Home (for people 65+), which provides light housekeeping, transportation to medical appointments, minor home repair, grocery shopping and friendly visiting. Some services have fees based on household income. • Welcoming Seniors Spaces (for people 75+) programs that help seniors stay connected; • Seniors on the Move (for people 75+) transportation services to community centres and other locations where they can access resources. Services are provided by volunteers and a fee is charged based on income. • Seniors Support Group (for people 60+), offers a discussion group for those who want to gain or give support. The group runs two or three times per year. For more information, call Kathie Rodway at 604-937-6975.
DIANE STRANDBERG The Tri-CiTy News
Fred and Tonny Scholten celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary recently in the most unlikely of places — a meeting room at Share Family and Community Services offices in Port Moody. “We are blessed,” said Tonny, looking around the room at nine other seniors who were joining them in the morning festivities. The couple who also live in Port Moody are one of approximately a dozen Tri-City seniors who come Fridays to a newly formed Seniors Cafe. Tonny and Fred, who knew each other when their families moved to Canada from Amsterdam and reunited in their early 60s after living separate lives and raising families, say they enjoy coming to socialize with the group. Hearing other people’s stories while sharing baked goods and coffee is a nice way to spend some time, the two say.
DIANE STRANDBERG/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Fred and Tonny Scholten enjoy coffee, cake and cookies at a Seniors Cafe organized for seniors who use the food bank. It takes place Fridays at the Clarke Street office of Share Family and Community Services in Port Moody. “We like meeting people our own age,” Tonny said. The group was started in the summer for people over age 65 who use the food bank. Roxann MacDonald said the idea was to make the process of
picking up hampers less taxing on older people while also giving them an opportunity to learn more about seniors services and making new friendships. “They are forming their own social group, which is
exactly what we were hoping,” MacDonald said. Approximately 10% of food bank users are seniors and the process of getting to a food bank and lining up can be tiring, especially for those with health
issues or mobility challenges. For some, there’s also a stigma attached and so most of the seniors attending the Senior Cafe didn’t want to be identified or have their picture taken. But the Scholtens said they used to feel a stigma but now just feel grateful because the donated food they get helps stretch what they can buy on their fixed income. However, it’s clear by those who attended Friday’s senior’s cafe that it appeals to a wide variety of people and cultures, including newcomers from Iran
and Colombia. MacDonald said group members are selecting topics that they want to learn about and so will be hearing soon from a wide range of speakers on issues such as Alzheimer’s and elder abuse. There is also room for more seniors in the group. Any food bank clients who are 65 years or older and are interested in the group that meets Fridays from 10 a.m. to noon at 2615 Clarke St., Port Moody, can call Kathie Rodway at 604-937-6975. firstname.lastname@example.org @dstrandbergTC
City vs. charity in competition for grant cash help for mental illness patients & new playground DIANE STRANDBERG The Tri-CiTy News
New View Society wants to start a program that would help people with mental illness get services and is looking to an online contest for funding. The city of Port Moody is also seeking votes for its pet project — a new playground for Rocky Point Park. Both organizations are contestants in the annual Aviva Community Fund contest that will award prizes up to $100,000 to 15 finalists in December. But while one organization is a non-profit with limited means, the other is a government with access to taxpayer funds and city staff at its disposal to organize its submission. The competition rules allow cities to participate and

Diana Dilworth, who chairs the city’s parks and recreation commission, which approved the contest bid as a possible new source of funding. But the mayor of Port Moody isn’t sure why the city is competing with non-profits and why a 10-year-old playground needs to be replaced so soon.
“We are competing with people who are existing on grants and donations,” said Clay, who said he only found out about the city’s submission on Facebook Monday. New View says the contest is important to get $100,000 in funding to hire people coping with mental illness who can reach out to others in similar situations. They would organize
-early riserstarting at $6.49
activities and recreational programs, provide education and other support. “We think peer support workers would be able to connect with people in the community,” said Chantelle Burga, New View’s clubhouse manager. She said studies have shown that people who have experienced mental illness are in the
best place to help other people navigate the health system. “The goal is to decrease isolation, hospitalizations and suicides,” Burga told The TriCity News. The city, meanwhile, is concerned that its Rocky Point Park playground built in 2006 is rotting and funds are needed to build a new $250,000 structure that children of all ages and
abilities could use. “It’s a super park, completely inclusive,” said PoMo’s Coun. Dilworth. People can vote for their favourite projects at www.avivacommunityfund.org. The voting ends Oct. 28 and people can cast up to 18 votes for a variety of projects across the country. email@example.com @dstrandbergTC

Bulging, Herniated or Worn Discs may be to Blame for Sciatica, Pain and Numbness in Legs Bulged Disc
] Did you know that over 30 million North Americans suffer from back and neck pain every day? Whether spine and back problems result from an auto accident, injury, or have crept up over time, sciatica and herniated discs are often misunderstood and improperly treated. They can result in pain and numbness anywhere in the body. This pain affects everything that you do, from work to play, and ultimately your quality of life. You might not even be able to sleep at night without pain. If you suffer from debilitating pain, we are here to tell you that there is hope. We have the technology and decades of experience to help you find relief from disc problems and sciatica. The Spinal Decompression Institute focuses on treating all disc and spine-related conditions with advanced non-surgical treatments. We are so confident that we can help you find relief that we are offering a complimentary consultation to the first 25 callers.
Spinal Decompression Allows Back Pain to Heal...Without Drugs or Surgery Decompression relieves pressure that builds up on the discs and nerves. The task of relieving pain comes about as a result of drawing the leaking gel of a herniated disc back into place. Decompression achieves this by creating
Herniated Disc Sciatica Pinched Nerves Stenosis
“For me, taking this program has been a huge success. I have my normal life back. The best part of it is to be able to say… I remember when I had a herniated disc.” — Bridget
negative pressure within the disc, referred to as negative intradiscal pressure. This creates essentially a vacuum to draw the bulging and herniated disc material back into the disc space and relieves pressure. This process of non-surgical decompression allows the body to heal itself naturally and is only one of many treatment options available at Spinal Decompression Institute.
Many spinal conditions can be treated, including pain due to bulging and herniated discs, degenerated discs, sciatica, low back pain, neck pain and much more. If you have chronic or severe back pain, you may be a candidate for spinal decompression treatment. At the Spinal Decompression Institute, we will evaluate your condition and only recommend treatment if it’s right for you.
Class IV Therapeutic Laser
Why The Spinal Decompression Institute?
The Spinal Decompression Institute employs a variety of high-tech solutions along with decades of experience to help alleviate your particular pain. Along with spinal decompression, our Class IV Therapeutic Laser Therapy is an outpatient, nonsurgical procedure which is often used in sports medicine to accelerate the healing process. This pain-free, non-surgical approach works by stimulating the body’s natural healing processes, providing pain relief and reducing injury and damage. This leading-edge technology has shown results in returning patients to work, sports and competitive activities, as well as everyday life. Laser therapy is just one of the treatment options that Spinal Decompression Institute offers as a non-invasive option for those facing surgery.
Who is a Candidate for Spinal Decompression? With 7 out of 10 people experiencing low back and neck pain at some point in their lives and those types of pain being the most common reasons for patient visits to primary care physicians as well as hospitalization, there is no doubt that back and neck pain exists in epidemic proportions today.
The staff at the Spinal Decompression Institute has over 40 years of combined experience in treating patients suffering from back and neck problems. We offer a variety of treatment options for those dealing with back pain. We have helped thousands of people to live pain free!

Storms prompted the opening of beds DIANE STRANDBERG The Tri-CiTy News
Emergency beds were open on the weekend at the Coquitlam homeless shelter and 15 people took the opportunity to stay dry as wind and rain from intense storms battered the region. Sandy Burpee, who is responsible for setting in motion the extreme weather response based at the shelter at 3030 Gordon Ave. on predictions of cold or wind, said the beds opened two weeks earlier than usual because of the storm. “This was very unusual timing,” said Burpee, noting the early call was obviously necessary because one woman and 14 men arrived to sleep in one of the 30 available dorm
SANDY BURPEE beds on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Still, he said the numbers don’t indicate the number of homeless in the region, a figure that won’t be known until a homeless count takes place in the spring. As well, he said there there are people who
choose not to come indoors. But there are times when the shelter, which is run by RainCity Housing and Support Society, has to turn away people because its 30 individual rooms and 30 apartments for longer stays have been full since it opened last December. Burpee said funding to hire staff for the emergency response program typically doesn’t start until Nov. 1 and he said it’s his job to monitor the weather and decide on whether to open the extra beds. Once the call is made, people are informed through word of mouth, by volunteers who work at the food banks, outreach workers and city bylaw officers.

LASER MAY BE THE ANSWER. WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY
KNEE PAIN Twelve years after knee surgery, I had been experiencing pain on a daily basis as well as swelling. After receiving 3 laser light therapy treatments, I noticed a reduction in pain and swelling. I had 9 treatments in total and am extremely happy with the results. I am pain free. I would recommend laser light therapy to others who are suffering with pain. E.F (85) KNEE PAIN After playing soccer for 40 years my knee started to get early signs of arthritis. It was very stiff & I could not enjoy simple walks. After 8 treatments of the laser light my knee feels great. I have great mobility and may even enjoy the odd soccer game again. Thanks Tony Guzzo ARTHRITIS BOTH KNEES I have been suffering from knee pain for several years and have tried a number of treatments and medications to no avail. I decided to give Laser Light Therapy an opportunity to ease my pain and while sceptical initially I am more than pleased with the results as my “day to day” pain
has been reduced significantly. I would recommend Laser Light Therapy to anybody suffering from pain.
William Jack (Age 63)
KNEE INJURY From 2010 to May 2013 – knee injury, I had knee pain, a meniscus tear,
thickening of the popliteus tendon and a Baker’s cyst including restricted knee
movement. After 8 treatments of laser light therapy, I am free of pain and have full mobility in my left knee and will not be having surgery. I recommend this to anyone who is suffering. Ulrike (62) KNEE PAIN I am a fitness instructor and instruct several classes per week and jog a couple times a week. I was experiencing sharp pain directly under my knee cap with exercise. I came in for 5 treatments and noticed a huge improvement after 3 treatments. I was able to resume all my fitness activities and my knee feels great. L. Porcellato

THE FUTURE OF RIVERVIEW
â€˜Break-evenâ€™ plan for Riverview work raises councilâ€™s ire continued from front page
The province and the city have put forward competing visions for the Riverview lands. Coquitlamâ€™s proposal, outlined in a report by John Higenbottam, states that the 244-acre property should be dedicated as a health campus, with education and training facilities and a specialized psychiatric hospital. The plan also includes some residential and rehabilitation facilities. BC Housingâ€™s proposal includes some health care elements but also calls for a complete community and an economic development precinct. Coquitlam council has taken issue with the provincial governmentâ€™s call for a â€œbreak-even mandate,â€? which means the costs associated with revitalizing the site are generated from revenues from the property â€” which would likely mean selling land to be developed. â€œThere is no other city in the province that has ever had to break even on properties in order to get some kind of medical facility,â€? said Coun.

BC Housingâ€™s proposal for the Riverview lands includes some health care elements but also calls for economic development. Mae Reid. â€œI donâ€™t know why Coquitlam has to be the first.â€? Michael Flanigan, the vicepresident of development and asset strategies at BC Housing, said the organization is still working to define what the break-even mandate would look like. But he noted that any future hospital programming would not have to be paid for from revenues generated from the Riverview lands. Flanigan also outlined a number of different ownership models for parcels of land on
the site. It is possible that BC Housing would enter into 60year leases and retain ownership of some lands while there could be other opportunities to work with the private sector on other developments. When asked what percentage of the housing on the property would be non-market residential, Flanigan said that work is expected to be conducted in the next phase of the planning process. firstname.lastname@example.org @gmckennaTC

Mounties answer questions GARY MCKENNA The Tri-CiTy News
Facing a deluge of questions last week over its handling of an investigation into a Coquitlam baseball coach charged with making and possessing child pornography, Mounties put out a statement Friday afternoon in an effort to clarify some points of the case. Randy Downes, 59, has been involved in youth sports for the last 30 years and was arrested on Oct. 12 following a six-month investigation by the RCMP. Police said Friday they did not notify the sports organizations that Downes was involved with because a “rigorous investigation takes time.” “Risk assessment is a big part of any police investigation, but particularly when the investigation involves a potential risk to children,” the police said in a statement. “If, at any point, our team had an indication that Mr. Downes presented a risk to the physical safety of children, we would have acted immediately via a public warning or some other strategy aiming to eliminate that risk.” According to Coquitlam RCMP, the investigation began with a tip from the BC Integrated Child Exploitation Unit. Mounties would not reveal the nature of the photographs, including the ages or genders of the children
RANDY DOWNES pictured, nor where they were taken. Coquitlam-Moody Minor Baseball, Baseball BC and BC Minor Baseball released a statement confirming that Downes had been suspended from all baseball activity. They also noted that he fulfilled the organizations’ criminal record check requirements. Downes next appears in court on Nov. 2. Below is some of the text of the RCMP statement last Friday (for the full text, go to tricitynews.com): On Wednesday, Oct. 12, the Coquitlam RCMP held a press conference to announce the approval of charges against Randy Downes, a Coquitlam resident who has been a well-known figure in Metro Vancouver youth sports for more than three decades. Since the announcement our investigators, our media
team and our front counter and switchboard staff have been inundated with messages from concerned citizens seeking reassurance and information about the investigation. Rather than respond to each query individually, we have chosen to address the most commonly raised issues here: Why did it take so long for Mr. Downes to get arrested? The simple answer is that conducting a rigorous investigation takes time.... More than six months passed between the initiation of our investigation into Mr. Downes on March 31, 2016 and his arrest on Oct. 12, 2016. During that time, our team was engaged in tasks such as identifying and interviewing witnesses but much of that time was spent reviewing an enormous volume of digital evidence to ensure there were sufficient grounds to recommend charges.... We understand that the nature of the charges raises a lot of questions. One thing we can confirm is that we have no evidence to indicate that Mr. Downes has had sexual contact with children. How can parents find out if their child’s photos are part of the investigation & get those photos returned or destroyed? Images captured as a result of Mr. Downes’ work as a sports photographer are covered under common or civil contract. Anyone with questions about
return or destruction of professionally obtained photographs should seek legal advice on how to proceed. Our investigators are doing everything they can to identify the subjects of the images seized as evidence in this investigation and to get in touch with those individuals. However, due to the volume of images needing review, this will be a time consuming process and we may not be able to identify all the individuals photographed. As our investigation moves forward we will manage all evidence, including digital images, according to established rules for the retention, return and forfeiture of evidence. If you have information to pass on to our investigative team you have three options: • Call the Coquitlam RCMP non-emergency line at 604-9451550. Quote file # 2016-9938. Your information will be passed on to the Coquitlam RCMP Sex Crimes Unit for follow up. • Email the investigators Coquitlam_sex_crimes@rcmpgrc.gc.ca and use “File #20169938” as the subject line of the email. • Contact Crime Stoppers by phone (1-800-222-8477) or online at www.solvecrime.ca If you have a question that wasn’t addressed above, please email Coquitlam_media@ rcmp-grc.gc.ca. We will update this post as needed.

Curlers throw info, not rocks, at council GARY MCKENNA
The Tri-CiTy News
Coquitlam curlers are pushing back at the city’s assertion that they are receiving a higher subsidy than other ice arena user groups. Flanked by several dozen supporters carrying signs that said “Save Coquitlam Curling” during a committee meeting on Monday, Brian Bastien outlined his case for keeping a dedicated curling facility at Coquitlam’s Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex (PSLC). “I say, respectfully, that denigrating and shaming curlers based on faulty financial metrics should stop,” he said
the ice for more convenient practice times for hockey and figure skating, it would result in less people using the Poirier complex overall. “I contend that it is wrong to evict curlers to make them pay for hockey’s convenience,” he said. “Curlers have been here for more than 50 years. It will be far more than an inconvenience to the seniors, physically and mentally disabled, students, juniors and other curlers, if evicted.” But the city of Coquitlam has numbers of its own. Raul Allueva, Coquitlam’s general manager of parks, recreation and cultural services, told The Tri-City News Bastien’s analysis does “not change the result.” He noted that while the curlers dispute some of the expenses associated with the
during a delegation presentation to council. He later added, “It is now wrongly believed that curlers are not carrying their weight.” He took issue with a consultant’s findings that said the cost recovery for curling is only 20% compared to 60% for other ice uses. The numbers have been cited by city staff as one of the reasons for moving curling out of PSLC and amalgamating the Coquitlam club with a club based at the Port Moody rec complex. Bastien said the numbers used by the consultant do not account for revenue generated by the rink at other times of the year and that the measurement of the rink in the report is larger than what the curlers are actually using. He added that while evicting the curlers would free up
rink, labour costs for maintaining curling ice is higher than the other arenas. Mayor Richard Stewart said staff and council will examine all of the numbers that have been put forward but in the end it is “about balancing scarce resources.” “We are dealing with an eight-year-old hockey player who is scheduled for a 5:30 a.m. hockey practice when there is all kinds of time when the [curling] rink is empty,” he said. “We get those kinds of comments from the hockey parents.” Staff will take Bastien’s analysis of the consultant’s numbers and some of the other issues brought forward during the public input process, and bring a report to council later in the fall.

Public’s chance on transit expansion plan Small hikes in property tax, fares proposed JEFF NAGEL BLACK PRESS
Tri-City residents can now have their say on TransLink’s latest plan to expand transit service. Public meetings and an online questionnaire are opportunities for public input on the plan, which, if approved, would be paid for with funds from an increase in TransLink property taxes and fares as well as the creation of a new development cost charge. For the Tri-Cities, the transit enhancements would include: • a new seven-day-a-week bus service to Burke Mountain; • integration of bus service to the Evergreen Extension; • four new secure bike parkades; • a new B-Line service along Hastings Street; • a new B-Line express service on Lougheed Highway connecting Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows to Coquitlam Central Station; • and five new West Coast Express cars.
In Anmore and Belcarra, the frequency of the C26 bus would be increased to every 30 minutes during weekday middays from the current 60-minute frequency. Other benefits would include more frequent SkyTrain, buses and SeaBuses early in 2017, and an advancement of the design of new rapid transit lines in Surrey and along the Broadway corridor in Vancouver. Ensuring the plan is paid for would mean hikes in property taxes and fares, as well as development cost charges. For example, the owner of an average home assessed at $678,000 would pay $190 next year in dedicated property taxes to TransLink — an increase of $3 over and above the automatic annual increase for TransLink of about $2 — and that would increase a further $3 a year thereafter. For a $1-million property, that translates to $285 in TransLink property tax in 2017, with $4 annual increases. Meanwhile, the owner of an average business property assessed at $2.6 million would pay $3,021 next year and see the TransLink property tax rise a further $45 each year. The proposed fare increases
Michaels Stores included the Star Shower in our 10/14 & 10/21 advertisements. Unfortunately, the Star Shower will not be in stores until 11/7/16. We apologize for any inconvenience this delay may have caused.
Speak up! Comment on stories on The Tri-City News’ Facebook page would require riders who now pay $2.10 for one zone of travel with stored value on a Compass card to pay $2.20 in 2017 and $2.40 by 2019. Onezone monthly passes would climb from $91 to $98 over the same period. Details of the planned
development cost charge are still to be determined but TransLink has suggested it would aim to raise up to $20 million a year by charging $700 to $2,000 extra on new housing units and $0.50 per square foot on new commercial buildings. Metro Vancouver mayors will vote on the plan in November. For more information or to participate, visit tenyearvision.translink.ca. Oct. 31 is the deadline to comment. email@example.com @jeffnagel
The pending opening of the Evergreen Extension is just one of the public transportation changes planned by TransLink.

Storms not so bad SMART METERS DON’T SAY WHY The onset of storm season stirred up a flurry of questions on social media for BC Hydro, including some residents who wondered why the public is asked for extra information about outages near them if smart meters were supposed to pinpoint them. Hydro officials say smart meters help identify which homes are without power, but they don’t reveal the specific cause — such as a tree fallen against lines in a particular location or a car crash. Others asked why power lines aren’t buried underground. Hydro responded that burying the vast number of overhead lines would be prohibitively expensive and would create new challenges, as overhead lines are much easier to service.

Hunger games: Publicity stunt raises good points A
Coquitlam councillor may be a little tired when he goes on his round of civic duties this week. That’s because Chris Wilson is living on limited rations thanks to his participation in the 2016 Welfare Food Challenge to raise awareness about B.C.’s low welfare rates. For a week, Wilson has to live on $18 worth of groceries — the amount left from an employment assistance cheque of $610 for a single person after paying for transportation, housing, a phone for job search and personal hygiene items. The challenge, organized by the group Raise the Rates, aims to make poverty an issue in the lead-up to next May’s provincial election. Wilson is a municipal politician but he says the
COUN. CHRIS WILSON provincial issue is important locally because of the many people, including adults on disability suffering from mental health concerns, who have to some how make do on these low rates. His con-
cerns are echoed by many poverty advocates and dieticians, who say the rates are too low to adequately feed, clothe and house individuals and families. To make the point that rates unchanged since 2007 need to rise, Wilson will be living on meagre rations and trying to do his job. That is something the B.C. government expects because nearly 40% of people on welfare are considered “capable of financial independence through employment,” even though many of them have a medical condition or multiple barriers to employment. By far the greatest

number of people on B.C. employment and assistance are people with disabilities. According to government statistics, there were 185,806 people in B.C. on income assistance in August, 69,720 of them expected to work and 116,086 of whom were on disability. These are people for the most part who struggle daily and for whom low welfare rates only add to their challenges. Will the food challenge make people care about this issue? It’s hard to say as this is the fifth year of the welfare challenge and the province has yet to budge on rates despite astronomical housing costs and a budget surplus. Still, there’s always hope that making an issue personal like this will make a difference.

The Editor, Re. “City of Lougheed rises next door” (The Tri-City News, Oct. 12). The referenced article is incorrect when it states that Lougheed City will house 10,000 people — it’s actually 10,000 UNITS, equating to 20,000 to 25,000 PEOPLE. How did this complex get so big without public input? But as it’s on Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan’s turf he couldn’t care less about Coquitlam or even his own constituents. His statement that the Burquitlam development is going to affect Burnaby is a specious argument at best. But some bigger questions: How is Royal Columbian Hospital going to handle this many more people plus the new 10,000 from Burquitlam five minutes away? As well, if this development and more are part of Metro Vancouver’s growth strategy, what is Metro doing about our watershed capacity? We ran

The Tri-City News looks at what’s happening with B.C. salmon & local streamkeeper groups that advocate for them
PART 3: HOY/SCOTT CREEK WATERSHED
A city surrounds Hoy/Scott creeks Growth in area affects health of the two creeks SARAH PAYNE
The Tri-CiTy News
here are few places that seem less likely for a salmon to travel from its ocean-going days to the twisting, gravel-lined place of its birth to spawn than the HoyScott Creek watershed. Yet it’s exactly what happens, year after year, in the clearrunning streams nestled among the sliver of forest that buffers this salmon habitat from the collection of condo buildings, schools and shopping malls that surround it. In fact, the coho population is returning in steady numbers and chum are also starting to appear, due in no small part to the dedicated work of volunteers with the Hoy-Scott Watershed Society. Since the late 1990s, the group has been capturing spawning salmon, transporting them to the hatchery to incubate a new generation in stacks of trays before they get a taste of the wild life in the rearing pond and, each spring, are released into the creek. Every day, volunteers check the air and stream temperatures, and conditions in the rearing pond, brush debris off the creek screens, and check the health of the stock. But their work extends far beyond that, given the watershed’s location in Coquitlam’s bustling Town Centre and the unique challenges that presents.
SARAH PAYNE/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Robbin Wachell, president of the Hoy-Scott Creek Watershed Society, at a bridge over Hoy Creek, behind Princess Gate, and in the incubation room at the hatchery, which hosts its annual Salmon Come Home event Sunday (details in sidebar at left).
SALMON COME HOME SUNDAY
This weekend, the Hoy-Scott Watershed Society celebrates its signature event to welcome spawning salmon back home. Salmon Come Home is on Oct. 23, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., rain or shine. Each year thousands are drawn to the event, which features free family fun including music and crafts, children’s costume parade and storytelling, information on the watershed and, of course, a chance to see salmon spawning. The hatchery is located in Hoy Creek Park, behind the City Centre Aquatic Complex at Pinetree and Guildford ways. Free parking is available at city hall, Pinetree community centre and Douglas College. Visit www. hoyscottcreeks.org for more information. “The city has grown up around the creek,” said Robbin Wachell, the society’s president, during a recent tour of the hatchery. “It’s a gift, a jewel, but a lot of people live here and don’t even know this is here.”

Public education is one of the watershed’s greatest priorities. From longtime local residents to new immigrants, many people don’t know the streams in their backyard are salmonbearing waterways and that the
storm drains on their streets carry pollutants to the creeks, said Rodney Lee, the society’s vice president. “Individuals may come from places where you’d use a stream for drinking water, laundry and other household uses,” Lee said. “Fish in the stream can be taken for food or display at any size. It’s continued work to educate as new residents arrive all the time.” Visible from the hatchery office and incubation rooms are the four-storey condos that front on to Princess Crescent. The recess bells and sounds of children trickle in from nearby Walton elementary — Pinetree secondary and Douglas College are also a short walk away — while the peal of alarms can be heard from the Town Centre fire
hall, which sits just above the hatchery’s fish traps. Walkers, runners, students and families keep the trails around the creek busy but that traffic means garbage, and dogs are let loose to run through the creek. During particularly hot and dry summers, such as last year, the watershed is at risk from people tossing cigarette butts. Invasive plants are a constant battle, whether pervasive species like the Himalayan blackberry or Japanese knotweed that were blocking the creek recently, Wachell said, or from neighbours dumping garden waste without realizing the impact it has on the survival of native species in the sensitive riparian area. “Native plants provide shade cover, insect growth [as] food for fish, organic matter,
Financial confidence looks good on you
bank stabilization with root structures, woody debris falling in-stream to create natural pools, water deflectors to reduce speed and resilience because of the diversity native plant species present as opposed to monoculture brought with invasive plant species,” Lee said. And while the trail traffic can present challenges, so does the ever increasing number of cars and construction surrounding the watershed. Drivers snaking up and down Westwood Plateau likely don’t know they are on roads that mimic Scott and Hoy creeks’ path downstream to where they join near Rona and the park-and-ride lot at Coquitlam Central Station. see DEV’T AFFECTS, page 18

Not for the faint of heart A GOOD READ MIKAELA MARTENS
all brings with it many things, including: colder weather, sweaters, pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween. When I think about Halloween, I think about candy, costumes and things that go bump in the night. I enjoy a book that scares the daylights out of me and today I’ll share with you some of my favourite creepy, spooky, freaky books. • Bird Box by Josh Malerman: Something awful has wiped out most of the Earth’s population. No one knows for sure what it is but one glimpse at it and it can drive you violence. Malorie and her two children are survivors who, for the last five years, have taken refuge in an abandoned house on a river. But now, it is becoming too dangerous to stay so Malorie and the children decide to flee to a safer place. In order to survive the journey, she must make the 20-mile trip going down the river, blindfolded, surrounded by a danger she cannot see. It is a fantastic suspense thriller that reminds us that the scariest things are often unseen. • The Three by Sara Lotz: The Three is one of the most interesting written books I have ever read. It is a fiction “nonfiction” book and incredibly captivating. The story revolves
around the events of a single day. There are four simultaneous plane crashes, with only a total of three survivors, all of them children. The kids are named “The Three” by international press and, over time, they begin to exhibit disturbing behavioural problems for reasons that can’t be explained. The event causes massive upheaval and conjecture around the world; many even dub it the beginning of the apocalypse. As things spiral out of control, there is speculation about the children’s survival and whether or not it was miraculous. It is a stunning book that every step of the way will leave you questioning what the real truth is. • The Girl with all the Gifts by M.R. Carey: Zombie stories are incredibly popular these days but The Girl With All The Gifts is the most unconventional
zombie story you will ever read. Melanie loves school. She loves to learn and read and hear stories about the outside world. She even has a favourite teacher whom she looks up to and tells about all the things she wants to do and be when she grows up. But Melanie is not like other children. She is a zombie — an emotional and intelligent zombie who can learn and grow and feel. She lives in a government facility that houses all of the children who have been inflicted with the zombie disease. The story follows Melanie’s journey as she searches for love and acceptance and a greater understanding of who she is. It is a sensational thriller that is not to be missed. • The Shining by Stephen King: This is one of my all-time favourite classics. Danny is a little boy with a very special psychic gift. His family moves to Colorado so his father can become the caretaker for the Overlook Hotel. The only problem is that the hotel is haunted and Danny’s gift is causing havoc. The Shining has stood the test of time and it has even been made into a movie that is considered one of the classic horror movies of all time. This is not a story for the faint of heart but it is one with many rewards. A Good Read is a column by TriCity librarians that is published on Wednesdays. Mikaela Martens works at Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox Library.

PART 3: HOY/SCOTT CREEK WATERSHED
Dev’t affects creeks continued from page 17
Those idling in traffic on Lougheed Highway near Riverview can picture the path of Scott Creek as it runs parallel to the busy thoroughfare to reach the Coquitlam River near Orchid Drive. In the spring of 2014, the society expressed concern with Evergreen Line crews that were working along the banks without proper sediment containment, and the following spring, hundreds of coho fry died in their incubation trays — roadway runoff was the suspected cause. “Urbanization brings roadways and hard surfaces, which put rainwater runoff directly into storm drains and into the stream,” Lee said. That means water levels rise and fall quickly, with wide fluctuations in creek volume. In the summer, low-flow water conditions present a significant concern to fish health, Lee added, but it’s hoped that upgrading storm drain infrastructure and changing hard surfaces to more water-permeable materials will help. Fortunately, Lee said, incidents like the one in March 2015 are rare and the streams’ health is good considering its urban location. “There are healthy populations of pollution-intolerant species — mayflies, caddisflies,
stoneflies — which serve as a good indicator and also serve well as food for fish,” he said. The result of all that diligent habitat restoration and protection is a stream system bustling with fish. Records kept since 2003 show volunteers trapped 42 coho that year. Four years later, only nine were trapped for the hatchery, with the high in 2013 being 154. There are now three generations of hatchery fish that are marked with clipped adipose fins so that volunteers can collect return data to gauge the survivability of their fish and estimate population sizes; in 2013 they released about 1,800 clipped coho smolts and, with their three-year life cycle, Lee said they are expecting a sizeable return year. The group is also starting to raise chum salmon after obtaining grant funding from the Pacific Salmon Foundation and equipment from Fisheries and Oceans Canada to maintain a mix of salmon species in the Hoy-Scott creek system. “Each returning salmon brings ocean biomass and nutrients back to the freshwater stream to help things grow,” Lee said. “Dead adults are food for terrestrial scavengers, fish fertilizer for streamside plants, decay in-stream is food for overwintering coho juveniles. The dif-
ferent run timing means there are carcasses in the stream longer, providing a longer availability for food.” But all of it requires constant, diligent protection, Wachell and Lee agreed. Neighbourhoods surrounding the watershed were built many years ago but as Coquitlam continues to grow, it needs to be in accordance with better development practices that preserve the natural hydrology as much as possible. More people, more pollution and improper stream-use practices can negatively affect its health for decades to come, Lee said. “Think big things you can see, like fish, but also the small stuff that help build up the food web to support those fish.” Mitigating those risks comes from public education — at the Salmon Come Home and Salmon Leave Home events each year and ongoing school and community group tours — public presence and volunteer engagement. But the society is hoping the public can do their part as well, keeping their eyes out for the watershed’s health and reporting to authorities if necessary, Lee said. “We collectively as the public have a duty of care and stewardship for the streams.” email@example.com @spayneTC

VISUAL ART, THEATRE
Autumn art show in PoCo Three oil paintings from a Philippine-born artist will be up for sale this weekend at a fall show in Port Coquitlam. PoCo resident and graphic designer Jo Galang will have her work up at the 23rd annual Art Focus Artists’ Association display, an exhibition in The Outlet at Leigh Square Community Arts Village (2248 McAllister Ave.) that opens Saturday at 11 a.m. and runs until Sunday at 5 p.m. A reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 22. Galang said she joined the association two years ago to connect with other artists in the community. For her figures and landscapes, she shies away from using bright colours, employing a natural palette instead to create images based on her sketches and photographs. The original art in the show “is really good and exciting,” said Galang, who has her BFA from a Manila university. “There is a lot of talent here and I’m happy to be a part of it.” Admission is free; art demonstrations will be held and refreshments will be served.

HOLMES IS BACK
The Arts Club Theatre Company remounts its Vancouver premiere of Baskerville when it tours the province this and next month. The fast-paced comedy by Ken Ludwig that’s based on the Sherlock Holmes mystery series stops at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam next week. And along with it comes five actors portraying a cast of
JO GALANG 40 zany characters. Directed by John Murphy, the play stars Lauren Bowler, Kirk Smith, Mike Wasko, Mark Weatherley and Jessie Richardson Theatre awardwinner Alex Zahara as Sherlock Holmes. The narrative centres around the wealthy Henry Baskerville who appears to be threatened by the fable of a bloodthirsty hound on the moors; Holmes and Watson put on their detective glasses to find the culprit. “Baskerville is definitely a comedic romp but the play also maintains the original story’s gothic feel so there are moments when we hope to scare the bejesus out of people,” Murphy stated in a news release. “As Conan Doyle said, ‘There is no horror without imagination.’” He added, “We’re going to do everything we can to engage the audience’s imagination by using the most rudimentary theatrical tools — like shadow puppetry — to put people in a place where they can believe that a mythical, murderous hound actually exists.” • Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery runs Oct. 25 to 30 at the Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam). Tickets at $42/$34/$15 are available at 604-927-6555 or visiting evergreenculturalcentre.ca. A pre-show chat will be held on Oct. 25 at 7:15 p.m. with a talk-back performance on Oct. 27 with the cast members and crew. firstname.lastname@example.org @jcleughTC

Substantial sulphur JANIS CLEUGH The Tri-CiTy News
For many Tri-City residents, the large sulphur piles on the shores in front of Pacific Coast Terminals (PCT) is a commodity seen every day — either on a commute to work or from Port Moody homes and parks. This month, the Port Moody Rock & Gem Club wants to honour that industry by making Element 16 the focus of its annual exhibition. The 100-member group will mount Seeking Sulphur: From Resource to Precious Stone, at the Kyle Centre on Oct. 29 and 30 — a subject the club felt was long overdue given its importance in the community. Organizer Andrew Danneffel said PCT will have presence at the show to allow company officials to talk about its exporting business as well as the need for sulphur around the world. Sulphur is the 13th most

of products: from food and medicine to paint and textiles. But it also plays a valuable economic role when its mixed with metals, he said. For example, when sulphide ores are combined with lead it creates galena, an important source of silver. When sulphur marries with copper, you get chalcopyrite. And when put with iron, it makes fool’s gold. A lapidary will also know that sulphur gives lapis its dark-blue colour. “It’s a fantastic element that everyone should know more about,” Danneffel said, adding, “Certainly, when we started to do our research for the show, we learned so much about it. Did you know that Canada is the largest exporter of sulphur in the world? And yet here we have it in our back yard.” The club will have many sulphur examples on display from Canada (lapis), Chile (lapis), Afghanistan (lapis), Romania (stibnite), Spain (fool’s gold),
the United States (sphalerite) and Bolivia (yellow crystals). As well, it will show fluorescent rocks or sodalite from Quebec, Ontario and Afghanistan; under the light, sulphur behaves as activators. Danneffel has also collected BC sulphide ore samples from MineralsED that will be on the table belonging to club member Erica Williams, a science teacher at Port Coquitlam’s Riverside secondary school who has found fossils around the Tri-Cities. As well, they’ll be sulphide ore and gold samples from the Britannia Mine Museum and Bralorne Gold Mine near Lillooet. • The 38th annual Port Moody Rock & Gem show runs Oct. 29 and 30 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Kyle Centre (125 Kyle St.).

The sea of yellow shirts and flags sealed the deal. As June Waddington and Surinder Lally ended their 200-km trek from Surrey to Seattle for The Ride to Conquer Cancer in August, the pair saw the bright colour on their fellow cyclists and felt moved to sign up for another year. They were overcome with their stories of surviving the disease and thought, too, of the friends and family they had lost to cancer. Waddington’s sister battled the illness as did her brother. And five years ago, she lost her best friend to cancer. For Lally, her 34-year-old second cousin — whom she had known since birth — died of cancer in March after being diagnosed with it after she married and fought it for six years. They also thought of Taylor, the son of Steve Parsons who named his 43-member cycling team after his eldest boy. In 2003, a decade after his diagnosis followed by two brain surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy, MRIs and hundreds of hours at B.C. Children’s Hospital, the 17-year-old teen passed away of brain cancer. Still, “because of medical research, his life was extended in a quality way,” Lally said. On Saturday, members of Team Taylor 2017 will continue their quest to build awareness and raise funds for cancer re-

STEVE PARSONS search at BC Uncorked, a semiannual food and wine festival in Port Moody. This spring’s BC Uncorked at Heritage Woods secondary was sold out and popped in more than $20,000 for Team Taylor; organizers of the seventh annual event hope to match — or beat — that goal through ticket sales, a silent auction, a wine wall and a draw that includes a catered dinner at home from Design by Desire Catering. At the fall event, which is sponsored in part by The TriCity News, representatives from 50 B.C. wineries will be pouring — among them, Quails’ Gate, Tinhorn Creek and Wild Goose. As well, 10 eateries such as The Boathouse, Brew Street Craft + Kitchen and Orrange will serve up their fare. Waddington and Lally will also be on hand to talk about their next big two-day ride as well as to recruit new cyclists for Team Taylor, which over the past year, has collected more than $150,000 for the BC Cancer Foundation — making it one of the leading teams on
the Ride to Conquer Cancer. Lally said she initially signed on to challenge herself mentally and physically “but I have had the chance to meet a lot of people who have been impacted by cancer and their stories really move me.” Lally also said she found it hard at first to ask people for donations; now, they approach her with cash in hand. “People are giving,” she said, “and that’s very encouraging.” Waddington encourages potential cyclists to sign up early. This year, she registered in April — five months before the ride to Seattle — which put her at a disadvantage with training and fundraising (each participant is required to bring in $2,500). “This is a ride, not a race,” Lally stressed, “and the support you get along the way is amazing…. BC Uncorked has been a great partner to keep Taylor’s legacy going.” • Tickets to BC Uncorked on Saturday, Oct. 22 are $60 plus tax via bcuncorked.com.

Gleneagle student gets solo show to highlight depression A Coquitlam high school student is being hailed as an up-and-coming artist by a TriCity businessman who says Yannie Lo’s paintings depicting feelings of depression and alienation are exceptional for their style and depth of emotion. Len Bergquist, the semi-retired general manager of PoCo Inn and Suites, said he was so impressed by the teenager’s work he decided to host a show at the Port Coquitlam hotel. “I wanted to have an art exhibition for her showing all of her art, but identifying this youth depression,” said Bergquist, who will be inviting mental health workers and advocates — including Carol Todd, mother of the late Amanda Todd — to the exhibit opening next month. The Gleneagle secondary student was only 15 when she created the project, a series of paintings that show the different ways people deal with depression. In one, for example, a woman is draped in jewelry made of razor blades and pills. “That is sometimes the way people deal with depression,” said Lo, who has been painting since she was six and plans to study art at university when she graduates in June. Lo said she prefers to work in oils and is drawn to “darkness” in her art. “I want people to feel emotions when they look at my art.” People with a special interest in mental health issues can contact Bergquist to attend the show on Nov. 2 by emailing len.bergquist2shaw.ca.

Losses start to pile up for struggling Coq. Express Team looks to get back in the win column tonight GARY MCKENNA
The Tri-CiTy News
ROBERT MCDONALD PHOTO
The Wenatchee Wild added their 10th win of the season Saturday night when they defeated the Coquitlam Express 3-0. The Express will be back on the ice at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex tonight (Wednesday) at 7 p.m.
With 14 games already in the books it is now official: The Coquitlam Express are off to a rough start this season. The 4-9-0-1 team has not logged a victory since their first home game of the year on Oct. 7 and have only managed two goals during the same time period. They were shutout 3-0 on home ice last Saturday by the Wenatchee Wild and things were not much better in a 6-2 loss the night before against Powell River. But the weekend started with a 4-0 loss to the Surrey Eagles on Thursday night, a club that is even lower in the standings than the Express. In front of 446 fans at the South Surrey Arena, the Eagles’ Nick Fea managed to put his team up two goals in the second period following a scoreless opening frame. Jeffrey Stewart and Andrew Kemp added to the tally in the third to deal the Express a 4-0 shutout loss. Coquitlam appeared to have shaken off Friday’s effort when they took the ice at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex 24-hours later against Powell River, with Sam Kozlowski getting the home team on
the board within a minute of the opening face off. However, the visitors quickly turned things COLIN BURSTON around, potting two goals in the first period before adding a single in the second. By the third period Powell River was up 5-1 and a goal from Coquitlam’s Owen Stout did little to spark a comeback for the home team. When the final buzzer sounded Coquitlam was down 6-2. Goals continued to elude the Express on Saturday, when the team hosted the Wild. Wenatchee scored first when Dakota Raabe buried a pass from Colin Burston to make it 1-0 two minutes into the game. Neither team managed a goal in the second period but Burston eventually made it 2-0 after being set up by Raabe and A.J. Vanderbeck added the visiting team’s third goal of the game ten minutes later. Coquitlam will look to get back to put a notch in the win column tonight when they host the West Kelowna at the Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex tonight. Face off is at 7 p.m. For more information and a complete schedule go to www. coquitlamexpress.ca. firstname.lastname@example.org @TriCityNews

Centaurs, Ravens duke it out for top spot in the east Both teams play at home at Percy Perry this week
The Centennial Centaurs extended their winning streak to four games, taking down the visiting Mission secondary squad 24-13 at Percy Perry last Friday night. The Coquitlam club kicked off the game with Nic Greene rushing the ball 40 yards to the end zone for the first touchdown of the game. Two forced fumbles in the first quarter gave the squad a 21-0 lead thanks to TDs from Keon Fuoco and Ryuou Inoue. Mission was able to get on the board with a few sustained drives, but the Centaurs defence stayed solid. Inuoe kicked a 30-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to seal the game and give the Cents their fourth win of the regular season. “Overall, we started explosively and executed well in the first half,” said head coach Eric Taylor. “For the amount of guys
that are injured, the team we had came out and played their hearts out.” Zach Lalonds and Kymani Guy both tallied sacks in the win. The squad is gearing to host Lord Tweesmuir secondary of Surrey this Saturday at Percy Perry. “In the end, a win is a win,”
Taylor added. “But we still have some improvements to make. We have some key injuries, we’ll regroup and hit the field Monday and start getting ready for the Tweedsmuir game next week.” Meanwhile, the Terry Fox Ravens are also 4-0 in the eastern conference after defeating
