A former public works employee with the city of Port Coquitlam faces a theft charge for allegedly stealing copper piping from the municipality. Monday, Coquitlam RCMP announced that Harold Edward Lewis, a 56-year-old PoCo resident, had been charged with the offence following a police investigation that started July 13. Lewis, a former water operator, is expected to make his first court appearance Dec. 3 at Port Coquitlam provincial court on one count of theft under $5,000. Cpl. Mike McLaughlin told The Tri-City News that while city managers notified the RCMP of seven city workers who had been fired for allegedly stealing copper piping and selling the product for scrap metal for personal gain, “the evidence to proceed only supports a single criminal charge.” see NO NEW, page 10

family and was unsure how it would be received, given the cultural differences. “The family welcomed them and they shared tea. It was a very lovely exchange,” MacLean said, adding, “It really lets people reach out of their regular circles, help their neighbour and connect with the community.” Last year, 217 households were sponsored by 140 individuals and groups through the Caring Neighbour program.
Diane StranDberg The Tri-CiTy News
Families, faith groups, businesses and schools wishing to provide a personal touch in choosing gifts and food for many Tri-City low-income families can register to sponsor a family through the Caring Neighbour program. “We have a Nov. 30 deadline so we can get everyone matched. It allows us to do the best possible match,” said Claire MacLean, executive director of Share Family and Community Services, which runs the program. MacLean said Caring Neighbour is a wonderful way to get to know people in your community while also helping out those who could use a little extra boost during the holiday season. Typically, sponsors provide a food hamper as well as gifts for each member of the family. They usually drop off the basket at the family’s home and get to know the people they are sponsoring. “We hear a lot of really great stories from this program,” said MacLean, recalling how one

Share volunteer Jim Donald packs a hamper at the Port Moody food bank. This year, Share expects to provide hampers for 1,219 families and toys to 1,289 children. Second World War veteran and his wife registered each year to sponsor a family because it was
a way of giving back. “He remembered how difficult the holiday season was
during war time and it was their way of making sure nobody saw that level of scarcity,”
she told The Tri-City News. Another group purchased gifts and food for a refugee
Here are other ways you can help during the Christmas season: • Share seeks volunteers to help with the gift wrap program at Coquitlam Centre mall, which runs Dec. 1 to 24 during mall hours. Shifts are three hours long and those interested can call Hayley at 604-529-5107. • Cash donations are appreciated this time of year to support programs run by Share Family and Community Services. Tri-City residents will soon receive a Share Joy Giving Guide in the mail to provide information about programs that support seniors, children, youth and families.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has been at a home in the 2300-block of Atkins Avenue in Port Coquitlam since Sunday, when an early-morning altercation left one man dead. Police “have a very good idea of what happened,” according to IHIT Cpl. Frank Jang, but are still canvassing the neighbourhood for witnesses who have not yet spoken to investigators.

Altercation leaves one man dead GAry McKennA The Tri-CiTy News
Investigators are remaining tight-lipped about an altercation early Sunday morning in Port Coquitlam that left one man dead and another in police custody. The incident occurred shortly before 6 a.m., when the Coquitlam RCMP responded to a report of a disturbance in the 2300-block of Atkins Avenue. When officers arrived, they found a man in serious condition. He was rushed to hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. A second man was arrested at the home in connection with the death. He suffered minor injuries and was taken to hospital. Tuesday, a spokesperson for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said officers were continuing to canvas the neighbourhood and talk to witnesses. “We have a very good idea of what happened,” IHIT Cpl. Frank Jang told The Tri-City News. “We have quite a few witnesses.” There were other people in the house at the time of the
incident, he added, and several neighbours have also spoken with police. “I am hoping there is going to be an update soon on the investigation,” he said. Jang would not disclose the names or ages of the suspect and victim but said they were known to each other. Police believe the altercation was an isolated incident and that there isn’t any further risk to public safety. While investigators are piecing together what happened, Jang said they are still hoping to hear from anyone who has not yet spoken to police. “We are speaking with witnesses and we are doing a canvas of the neighbourhood surrounding that home,” he said. “We are asking for people… who may have heard any yelling or screaming or anything out of the ordinary.” Anyone with any information is asked to contact police at the IHIT information line (1-877-551-4448) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Those who wish to share information anonymously can contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

SCHOOL DISTRICT 43
Coq. school vandalized Diane StranDberg The Tri-CiTy News
Vandals struck Hillcrest middle school in Coquitlam and neighbouring streets, leaving spray-painted graffiti and broken windows in their wake. Coquitlam RCMP Cpl. Michael McLaughlin said six to eight vehicles were damaged, windows were broken at the school and graffiti was spray-painted on the building and the cars. The spree took place late Friday night or early Saturday morning, causing a mess for the school district and nearby homeowners. “It’s very disturbing to the neighbourhood,” he said. It was reported to The TriCity News that one of the graf-
fiti images was a swastika but McLaughlin wouldn’t confirm that except to say, “It was meant to be offensive, for sure.” A school district spokesperson said one graffiti image resembled the recognized hate symbol but it was painted backwards. Peter Chevrier said workers were on site painting over the graffiti and boarding up windows that were broken Saturday morning. “Thankfully, Hillcrest has been relatively immune from vandalism over the past several years as most windows have shutters, and we hope this is an isolated incident,” Chevrier said in an email. McLaughlin also said incidents of vandalism against schools were down this year.

A Remembrance Day poppy donation box was swiped off the counter of a Tim Hortons in Coquitlam’s Austin Heights neighbourhood early Friday morning. Laurie Chapman, Coquitlam Legion #263’s poppy fund chair, said the coffee shop is a popular location and the amount lost could range anywhere from $100 to $200. “It is an amount that is supposed to be for veterans,” she told The Tri-City News. “I think it is absolutely disgusting what they did.” After reviewing surveillance footage, managers at the Tim Hortons said they believe the incident occurred at around 4:16 a.m. on Nov. 2. Chapman said it is her understanding that multiple people may have been involved in the theft.

A donation poppy box was stolen from an Austin Heights area Tim Hortons last week. Staff at the Tim Hortons were aware the poppy box had been taken but did not notify police and the legion was only informed of the theft on Monday. However, by Tuesday a report was filed with the Coquitlam RCMP and officers have been to the coffee shop to interview witnesses. “Whoever it was, they were not regulars,” Chapman said
on Tuesday. She is currently talking with Tim Hortons head office about getting a copy of the surveillance video. Once they receive the footage, she said she will forward it to police and they will have a better description of the suspects. “At this point, we are still waiting for the video,” she said. firstname.lastname@example.org @gmckennaTC

$50K for PoCo active to teach phys. literacy Money will be used to train health educators Diane StranDberg The Tri-CiTy News
Literacy and numeracy are well-established educational goals, but what about physical literacy? The term may be turning up more in discussions about the need for children, youth and adults to get more active in their daily lives. And thanks to a new group called PoCo Active, residents of Port Coquitlam may be among the first to learn the new lingo. PoCo Active has received a $50,000 grant from the Sport for Life Society to train and mentor educators, health practitioners, coaches and city parks and recreation staff in the ideas of physical literacy for programs that will encourage people to be active for life. “The more we can give people, the more ‘durable’ they become,” said Ryan Clark, executive director of the Port Coquitlam Sport Alliance, whose group is part of PoCo Active. Already entrenched in the new provincial education curriculum, in Physical and Health Education courses, physical literacy is the underpinning of a healthy life. For children, it’s about being able to do fundamental movement skills in variety of physical activities and environments. But as people age, they can’t leave their active days behind.
In fact, said Elisa Maruzzo, engagement manager for Sport for Life, physical literacy is just as important as we grow older to prevent infirmity and to stave off illnesses that can result from an inactive lifestyle. “A lot of time, people don’t know what to do,” said Maruzzo, who demonstrated her balancing skills last week at the playground at Gates Park. “With PoCo Active, the doctors who provide information to their patients, teachers who work with kids will know about physical literacy because we will work with them to show them what it is.” Physical literacy is having the motivation, confidence, physical competence, knowledge and understanding to be active. But Maruzzo admits there are challenges: lack of time, too many screens, cold, wet weather, dark evenings and lack of initiative. Pointing to a couple of youths sitting next to an empty soccer field peering at their phones, Maruzzo said health, sport and education providers will need to work together to come up with measurable goals that will help PoCo residents be active for life, starting with the very young. “What’s making it so they want to be on the phones and not on the fields?” wondered Maruzzo. On the other hand, PoCo is perfectly situated for taking on such a challenge because it is located next to trails, there are a lot of parks and the new recreation complex will offer opportunities for promoting physical literacy.
With a Physical Literacy 101 course under the belts and plans for a future summit, PoCo Active members Fraser Health, School District 43 and PoCo Sport Alliance are working on plans for the future. And one goal will be getting the message out to the community that physical activity is for everyone.

POCO PIPE THEFT
No new charges in PoCo thefts without additional evidence continued from front page
“Our investigation is complete from a police perspective,” he said. “We have talked to everybody that we could — dozens of potential witnesses and suspects — and have looked into everything that was supplied by the city. There will be no more charges unless new evidence comes forward.” In July — as first reported by The Tri-City News — the city dismissed seven workers in the engineering and public works department for allegedly taking copper pipes over a 10-year period. The estimated loss to the city was at least $75,000 and the workers’ length of service with the city ranged from one-and-a-half years to 21 years. Ron Narayan, acting president for CUPE Local 498, which represents unionized PoCo city workers, told The Tri-City News that the preliminary grievance hearings are now concluded for the seven employees and the case is up for arbitration; no date has been set.
CPL. MICHAEL MCLAUGHLIN In a statement, Steve Traviss, PoCo’s human resources director, said the city did its “due diligence” to alert police about the seven employees who had been let go in early July. “Over the last few months, our priority has been learning from the incident,” he said. “We have been reviewing the structure, processes and procedures in place for monitoring the inventory, usage and disposal of city property, and implementing measures to help prevent such thefts in the future.” He added, “We thank our
employees for their continued professionalism and service to our community during this difficult time and for working hard every day to earn the trust of our citizens. Our residents can be assured that all essential service needs are being met to the highest safety standards.” The firings in July came two months after Dean McIntosh — a former PoCo facility maintenance co-ordinator — was sentenced for stealing about $175,000 from the city over three years; he received an 18-month conditional sentence order after he pleaded guilty in March to obtaining money over $5,000 by false pretences. McIntosh used the city’s credit card and purchasing system to buy tools and small machines, which were later resold via a third party. He admitted to his illegal actions when confronted by city managers, apologized and showed them how he committed his crimes. He also reimbursed the city for the full amount.

B.C. SUPREME COURT
anmore Green septic problem goes to court Mario Bartel The Tri-CiTy News
Anmore council has agreed in principle the only solution to resolve the ongoing septic issues at the Anmore Green Estates (AGE) strata complex is to connect the 51 homes to Port Moody’s municipal sewer system. But a petition by the Anmore Green strata to B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster on Oct. 12 to extend the process with the village to allow 11 properties on a decommissioned septic field to be developed could further delay a resolution to the problem of contaminated leakage burbling up near Eagle Mountain middle and Heritage Woods secondary in Port Moody. On Oct. 19, the judge hearing the case rejected Anmore Green’s request for a quick decision and ordered a full hearing. No court date has been set. Brandie Roberts, the vicepresident of AGE’s strata council, said owners will need to develop part of the property to pay for the cost of the sewer hookup and the annual expense of membership in the Metro Vancouver Sewerage and Drainage District that administers municipal sewer systems for all of Metro Vancouver. In a letter sent to Anmore council on Monday, she said the initial cost estimate of $200,000 to achieve
The owners in the Anmore Green Estates strata complex say they need to be able to subdivide 11 properties atop a decommissioned septic field in order to afford to pay for the complex to be hooked into Port Moody’s municipal sewer system. that has already doubled. “The value of these lands funds this process and the eventual connection cost,” Roberts told The Tri-City News. “Without the funding for the connection coming from our septic land, our community doesn’t know how we’ll pay for the costs to connect.” A resolution passed by Anmore council Oct. 16 said the residents of the strata must bear all the costs associated with hooking up Port Moody’s sewer system just 60 metres away as well as ongoing costs to be connected to the regional sewerage system. Anmore Mayor John McEwen said the annual ongoing flow costs would be about $10,000, increasing to $12,000 in five years, as well as any ad-
ditional maintenance costs. McEwen said council’s assent only applies to the strata’s existing 51 homes. Roberts said attempts to engage in a dialogue with Anmore about the future use of the vacant property have gone nowhere. Anmore Green’s petition asked the court to void an amendment made to Anmore’s zoning bylaws last October that, among other things, specifically removed “additional development capacity” at Anmore Green Estates should the septic field no longer be required. In documents filed in court, Anmore Green said the bylaw was passed less than a month after it had applied on Sept. 18, 2017, to subdivide 11 properties on the old septic field, some-

thing it claims was entrenched in the village’s original approval to allow construction of the housing strata. Anmore Green argued that, according to Section 511 of the B.C. Local Government Act, because the application for subdivision of the property was submitted to the village before the bylaw amendment was adopted, it shouldn’t apply, nor should it have any effect on any subdivision application for 12 months after adoption. The strata also said in a meeting between the property’s developer and Anmore’s approving officer on Sept. 27, 2018, it was told the village had no intention of considering the subdivision application until after Oct. 17. “It seems to us the clock has been purposely run out for the 12 month bylaw grace period for processing our application,” Roberts said.
McEwen said the ongoing legal case prevents him from going into further detail. But he did affirm any subdivision of the strata contradicts Anmore’s official community plan that was adopted in 2014. High levels of fecal coliform and E. coli were found in groundwater seeping from Anmore Green’s septic fields during routine testing last year. That resulted in a pollution abatement order from the Ministry of Environment that required Anmore Green to take steps to ensure no health risks to the public. In December, the strata erected steel blue fencing and warning signs around part of the Eagle Mountain middle school’s property that includes a hillside where kids often play or take shortcuts to get home. Last August, the Ministry of Environment issued a new pollution abatement order, this time to the Village of Anmore, in
an effort to hasten a resolution. That order requires the Village of Anmore to prepare a waste management plan for all its liquid municipal waste by Nov. 30. McEwen said Anmore remains steadfast in its resolve not to connect the entire village to the regional sewerage system so it can maintain its semi-rural character. But, he added, given council’s acceptance of the idea of allowing a connection specifically for Anmore Green, the village has requested the Ministry of Environment rescind its abatement order. Roberts said time is of the essence. “Taking away the opportunity for development means each AGE homeowner’s financial security is at risk,” she said. “This whole issue is terrifying. We’ve always wanted expedited resolution to stop the health risk created.” firstname.lastname@example.org

THE TRI-CITY NEWS’ OPINION
Drivers, pedestrians both have safety roles to play b
e smart, be seen. Sure, drivers can be distracted and are frequently to blame in a pedestrian accident (which is why so many leave the scene). but if you’re the one getting knocked over, chances are you’re going to suffer more in a run-in with a car, truck or Suv than the driver of the vehicle. That’s why police and ICbC are reminding everyone to be extra cautious this time of year. • Pedestrians — that’s you with the phone in your hand DELIVERY 604-472-3040 NEWSROOM 604-472-3030 DISPLAY ADS 604-472-3020 cLASSIfIED ADS 604-444-3056 n
— make sure the driver sees you when you enter an intersection. It’s at these crossroads where most accidents involving pedestrians occur. • Drivers, leave the phone alone, assume there’s a pedestrian about to enter the crosswalk and take extra care, taking a second look before proceeding — especially on those many dark, wet afternoons and evenings. It’s no accident that 43% of all crashes involving pedestrians occur between october and January. Weather, darkness, poor lighting, dark
clothes, lack of care and attention all contribute to the problem. This is common sense to most people. but everyone’s in a hurry and that’s why accidents happen. When we’re In a rush, common sense goes out the window. Think we’re making this up? In a space of two days last week, there were three pedestrian accidents involving Tri-City people, two in Coquitlam and one involving a Port Coquitlam man in Pitt Meadows. We’re not laying blame.
These accidents were terrible to everyone involved, and resulted in serious injuries. but if we can remind our readers to take that extra step — whether it’s pedestrians waving to a driver, wearing a high-visibility vest, taking a second look at an intersection; or drivers slowing down, double-checking crosswalks and keeping keen eyes open for walkers and cyclists — then maybe we can prevent more accidents from occurring. It takes a village to create safer roads.
Drivers — responsible for thousands of kilograms of moving metal — and pedestrians have to be especially careful at this often wet and dark time of year.

KFN says PoCo trail will remain closed Closure in place to ‘ensure public safety,’ says CAO JaNis Cleugh
The Tri-CiTy News
Kwikwetlem First Nation says it will keep a part of the Traboulay PoCo Trail closed for safety reasons — for now. In a tweet Tuesday morning, the band wrote it had hoped last month to re-open the 1.5km stretch south of Pitt River Road. That section of the city pathway is on land leased by the KFN, which is building a business park on IR2 that borders PoCo. Trail users are asked to take Shaughnessy Street to link with Colony Farm Regional Park, or head to Argue Street. The trail closure “is in place to ensure public safety while construction is ongoing” the tweet reads, adding KFN places the delay of the re-opening with the city for not greenlighting a servicing agreement. KFN chief administrative officer Eau-Vive Heppenstall said band members are also impacted by the trail closure. “We’ve been very transpar-

Heppenstall declined to comment on why the servicing deal has yet to be inked; however, she noted understaffing at city hall as well as last month’s general elections
and council changes. Laura Lee Richard, PoCo’s director of planning and development, told The Tri-City News in September that city staff continue to work with KFN and its consultants to hammer out site servicing needs. “Once this draft is completed then we would be taking it forward to council for consideration,” she said. In the meantime, Heppenstall said investors have been “banging down our door” wanting to build commercial and industrial space on the 120 acres. Last month, KFN hosted an open house in PoCo to discuss its plans with the community — three weeks before the election vote — and, on Oct. 26, it invited government officials, CP and CN Rail reps, business leaders and the media to tour the site and meet with Chief Ron Giesbrecht. In 2016, KFN filed an Aboriginal land claim for Riverview Hospital, the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital lands, Colony Farm Regional Park and part of Gates Park in PoCo. The city is also named in the lawsuit. firstname.lastname@example.org @TriCityNews

Cigarette receptacles help smokers butt out Diane StranDberg The Tri-CiTy News
A Coquitlam business group is tackling the problem of cigarette litter with an innovative program that not only recycles the pesky filters but also provides extra income to a local non-profit agency. This summer and fall, the Austin Heights Business Improvement Association took on the challenge of collecting cigarette butts in partnership with TerraCycle and the Community Ventures Society. As many as 17 cigarette butt receptacles have been placed in high traffic areas in the Austin Heights neighbourhood in Coquitlam at a cost of nearly $2,000, with the goal of encouraging smokers to dispose of their cigarette waste instead of dropping it into the gutter. “It’s litter but it can’t go into the regular garbage recycling and over 60% of smokers say they would use a receptacle if it was provided,” explained Lisa Landry, executive director of the Austin Heights BIA. Community Ventures Society, which supports people with developmental disabilities and their families, will empty the receptacles as part of their arrangement with the BIA and will receive funds towards programming when they send the package to TerraCycle. TerraCycle, an international recycling company, then recycles the waste into a variety of industrial products, such as plastic lumber, and composts the remaining tobacco and paper. “We have a cleaner area, Community Ventures can raise funds, it doesn’t go into the
One of 17 new cigarette butt receptacles installed in hightraffic areas in the Austin Heights commercial area, a project initiated and paid for by the Austin Heights BIA in an effort to rid the shopping area of litter. landfill and TerraCycle makes useful products,” said Landry, who said she researched solutions to cigarette waste after seeing how much of it was being collected in litter pickups and saw what the city of Vancouver was doing with its four BIAs. “I thought, ‘let’s be forward thinking’ because us turning a blind eye is causing more litter in our area,” Landry said.
In fact, cigarette butt litter isn’t just an eyesore, it’s a major source of pollution, carries toxic materials, according to Zero Waste Canada, and is slow to degrade in the environment. Some have argued that cigarette manufacturers should be responsible for the waste, but it’s often left to cities to deal with. Landry said she’s pleased her organization has come up with an effective solution, the receptacles provided by TerraCycle are easy to maintain and empty and so far appear to be used by smokers. “We’re hopeful other areas will follow suit,” Landry said. Meanwhile, TerraCycle is pleased that the local organization is making an effort to reduce cigarette litter. In a press release, TerraCycle CEO Tom Szaky said every year billions of cigarette butts are thrown out that could be recycled. “We give a big ‘thank you’ to the more than 2,000 locations that have helped us collect over 100 million cigarette butts through this recycling program.” For more about the program, visit www.terracycle.ca firstname.lastname@example.org @dstrandbergTC

A prairie boy shares wwii memories PoMo resident Hansen received notice of war’s end Gary McKenna
The Tri-CiTy News
s a coder in the navy during the Second World War, it was Svend Hansen’s job to unscramble secret messages from headquarters and pass them along to his ship’s commanders. But the most significant communique to ever come across his desk aboard the HMCS Penetang did not require any decoding. In plain text, it stated: “Tuesday eighth May repetition eighth May is VE DAY.” The message was received May 7, 1945 and the following morning, Victory in Europe Day — VE Day— was declared. To celebrate, a second message was sent to the Penetang: “Splice the main brace.” “That didn’t need to be decoded,” Hansen told The TriCity News. “It meant double the rum ration.” Hansen’s military career began in 1942 when, fresh out of high school, he signed up with the HMCS Tecumseh, a Royal Canadian Navy Reserve, in Calgary. After completing basic training, he was whisked away to Halifax, where he first served on the HMCS Hepatica, a Flower-class Corvette, before moving to the Penetang, a significantly larger River-class frigate. In the three years before the VE Day message arrived, Hansen’s ship was part of a fleet of vessels criss-crossing the Atlantic conducting convoy duty, protecting merchant ships supplying Britain from German U-boats. “The first trip I made, I was dreadfully sick,” said Hansen, who had spent his formative

years on the prairies, far from the ocean. “After a while, I got my sea legs. I could roll with the ship and it didn’t bother me after that.” After fighting ended in Europe, Hansen intended to serve in the Pacific theatre. But by the time his duties had concluded in the Atlantic and he had returned to his home in Calgary, the U.S. had dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and th Second World War was over. Instead, he went to university and eventually took a job in the dairy industry. In 1965, he was transferred to British Columbia, where he bought a home in Port Moody’s Glenayre subdivision before downsizing to a place in Newport Village in the early 2000s. Today, the 95-year-old shares his stories as part of the Memory Project, a volunteer speakers bureau that connects veterans with schools and community organizations across Canada. One question students regularly ask is whether he was scared during the dangerous Atlantic crossings, particularly in the early parts of the war. “You’re 20 years old,” he said is his typical response. “You don’t give a damn. You’re out there and you just go.” Since joining the group in
2004, Hansen said he has done more than 100 presentations, just one speaker who has helped the Memory Project reach 2.1 million Canadians since its creation in 2001. With Remembrance Day approaching Sunday, this is a busy time of year for Hansen, who is expected to meet with four school groups this week. “I find the social studies groups are very, very respectful and very, very interested,” he said. “Lots of questions come up.” Remembrance Day is not just an opportunity to learn about Canada’s history, he added, it is also a recognition of the soldiers who have lost their lives serving their country. Hansen notes that Canada, which had a population of 11.2 million when the Second World War began, saw more than a million people serve in the country’s armed forces. Of that total, 42,000 people lost their lives. “When you wear one of these,” he said, pointing to his poppy, “you are giving thanks for their service and to the people that passed away not only in World War II, but in other wars. We thank them for their service.” firstname.lastname@example.org @gmckennaTC

Trivia night with a Broadway twist Janis Cleugh The Tri-CiTy News
If you’re sharp at answering trivia questions — and tucking into homemade desserts — Terry Fox secondary has a night to whet your appetite. Next Saturday, the Port Coquitlam high school hosts its 26th annual trivia night — a benefit for its music department currently run by Ryan Cho, one of two School District 43 teachers who last month won a premier’s award for excellence in education. Cho, who’s been at the northside high school for 11 years, said the department hopes to collect $8,000 from the event to help pay for two extra-curricular activities next year: a field trip to see a Vancouver Opera production in February and a three-day music festival in Whistler. The trivia night proceeds will be in addition to what the 90 concert band and choir students haul in during the academic year, through Easter egg chocolate sales and returns at Biggar Bottle Depot on Kingsway Avenue. For this year’s trivia night, there’ll be a familiar judge on the panel: PoCo school trustee Michael Thomas, who was re-elected last month. The school’s new principal, David Starr, was also invited to be a judge while parent Anthony Bischoff will emcee. While last year’s theme centred on superheroes, Broadway Baby! is the focus on Nov. 17, with many questions tailored around Broadway musicals. Cho said a parent committee has spent hours designing 56 questions — seven rounds at eight question each — to stump participants. And though the questions are top secret for now, he revealed a few of the topics during an interview last week with The Tri-City News: the Oscars, sci-

Awards will be handed out for best cosdAVid STARR tumes (guests are encourage to dress as their favourite singer, dancer or actor in a musical or movie) and team name as well as for the two topscoring tables; door and raffle
prizes will also be distributed throughout the night. As well, guests also have the chance to win silent auction goodies. In past years, the packages have included tickets to the Vancouver Opera shows and Vancouver Canucks’ games; instruments from Long & McQuade, which has a store in Port Coquitlam; and graduation dresses (businesses can donate goods by emailing email@example.com).
As in previous years, music students will be volunteering — either at set-up, take-down or during the night — and a few concert band musicians will perform at half-time. “The students really have fun,” Cho said. “It’s something they look forward to every year, and it’s really a great way to connect with the community while raising money.” • Tickets are $20 via terryfoxtrivianight.ca (no tickets
will be available at the door). Singles and couples can email Ryan Cho at firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed at tables with seats available. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. with the action starting at 7 p.m. in the Terry Fox secondary gym (1260 Riverwood Gate, Port Coquitlam).

Qualified arts teachers looking for a new venue to instruct can join an open house at Place des Arts this month. On Friday, Nov. 23 — from 1 to 2:30 p.m. — staff at the Coquitlam facility will showcase the Brunette Avenue building and its programs, hoping to attract new faculty members for next summer and the 2019-’20 season. It’s the first time Place des Arts has staged such a wide call for teachers of visual arts, dance, theatre, music and literature programs. Executive director Joan McCauley said managers are “looking to the future” with the recruitment drive. Several faculty members have retired recently; however, “that’s not the main reason we are doing this,” she said. “We want to attract talent and stay competitive.” She added, “We want to increase awareness about teaching opportunities at Place des Arts. We know that coming in person to our centre can be very powerful and people understand the uniqueness.” Candidates are asked to have a bachelor’s degree or equivalent skills, training and experience. To RSVP by the Nov. 16 deadline, call 604664-1636 (ext. 24) or email email@example.com.

Put on your blindfolds for Bombay Black, director asks Janis Cleugh The Tri-CiTy News
For Bombay Black — an award-winning play that’ll be mounted in Coquitlam this week as part of the South Asian Diwali celebrations — director Rohit Chokhani wants viewers to “see” life the same way as his blind protagonist. Or, at least, for part of it. Chokhani is asking guests to put on blindfolds for certain parts of the show “to understand what it’s like to be blind in Mumbai,” he said. “There are scenes in the play where we are depicting dark outs so the audience can imagine things in our mind, much as he does.” The 2006 story by Anosh Irani, who moved from Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) to Vancouver in 1998 to pursue his writing career, is set in present-day India. It follows Apsara, who works as an erotic dancer; her manager mother, Padma, with whom she lives; and Apsara’s blind client Kamal. Kamal, as it turns out, was married to Apsara when he was 10 and she was three. He discloses news about her father, from whom she and her mother have been hiding, and opens new wounds of child abuse. “It’s a really
Bombay Black runs at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam Thursday to Saturday during the Diwali celebrations. hard-hitting play,” Chokhani said. “You don’t know what’s going to come next. I think we have put a really unique interpretation on it.” He added, “The whole story is based on a blind man who is with an exotic dancer. I found it was a very interesting premise, especially about the act of male gazing. I was born and raised in India and, when I met Anosh Irani in Bombay years ago, we spoke about that concept. What if, during certain sections of the script, we don’t let the audience gaze? We are now showing it from his perspective.” Named the Pick of the Fringe at last year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival, Bombay Black’s four-date run at the Evergreen Cultural
Centre concludes with a South Asian event on Sunday night featuring dancers and musicians — including Bharatanatyam dance artist Arno Kamolika. The show is programmed by Chokhani, who is the also the artistic director of Diwali in B.C. Meanwhile, next year, Chokhani will co-director the Bard on the Beach production of Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well, set in India during the waning days of British occupation. • For tickets to Bombay Black and the Diwali celebrations, call the Evergreen Cultural Centre (1205 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam) at 604-9276555 or visit evergreenculturalcentre.ca.
Auction yields $9,500 for PdA An online auction to raise funds for a Coquitlam arts hub generated more than $9,500. But the amount collected for Place des Arts’ outreach programs and subsidies was shy of its $10,000 goal. Among the prizes on the block for the third annual auction, which ended last Saturday night, included a trip anywhere VIA Canada travels, a Whistler hotel stay and season passes for the Vancouver International Film Festival.
An entrepreneur and philanthropist who has given to Place des Arts in the past is again challenging Tri-City residents to match his fundraising. Last week, Jack Gin announced he would match any contributions made to support the Coquitlam art centre’s ArtReach summer camp. The camp is offered for free to kids in grades 1 to 5 — with families in financial need — who want arts education. Gin is asking residents, businesses and groups to step forward to bring in $10,000 to run the camp for 2019 and ’20. “We are excited and grateful to benefit from the generous, ongoing support of the Jack Gin Family Foundation, held at Vancouver Foundation,” said Joan McCauley, Place des Arts executive director, in a news release. “Thanks to thoughtful and engaged donors like
Coquitlam’s Tanya Mathivanan — the artistic director for Aenigma Theatre who also works at the Evergreen Cultural Centre — will see her company’s show open next week. The Vancouver premiere of The How and The Why, penned by Sarah Treem, runs Nov. 13 to 17 at Studio 1398 (1398 Cartwright St., Vancouver). For tickets at $25/20, visit theatrewire.com. Tickets will also be sold at the door (cash and credit only). Visit aenigmagtheatre.com. Jack, we can make a meaningful impact on children’s lives through this type of accessible arts program.” To donate, call 604-664-1636 or visit placedesarts.ca/donate.
Recruiting event volunteers is the focus of the city of Port Coquitlam’s next Cultural Roundtable. Guests to the meeting, which takes place Nov. 15 at 5 p.m. in the Michael Wright Art Gallery, in the Gathering Place at Leigh Square Community Arts Village, will hear from Rob Loxterkamp, a certified volunteer administrator and recreation program assistant for volunteer services with the
city. Call 604-927-8441.
Coquitlam actor Valeria Ascolese will play Miss Lucy Steele in Sense and Sensibility.

Coquitlam artist Ornella Maruccio-Belhomme with two pieces she will display in the Michael Wright Art Gallery, in the Gathering Place at Leigh Square Community Arts Village in Port Coquitlam. Her solo show, titled Art and Soul, has its opening reception tomorrow (Thursday) at 7 p.m.
Italian artist draws on her architectural career JanIs Cleugh The Tri-CiTy News
In her long career as an artist and architect, Italian native Ornella Maruccio-Belhomme has only once exhibited her artwork. That was last May when her Face It! collection — 23 pieces of mixed media using faces and masks as the theme — was displayed at The Beaumont Studios in Vancouver. The success of that show gave her the “courage,” as she calls it, to put out her paintings, drawings and quilts more for public viewing. She applied to Douglas College to showcase her Face It! series in its Amelia Douglas Gallery at the New Westminster campus. And, with the encouragement of her printmaker friend, Ilsoo Kyng MacLaurin — a South Korean immigrant who, in 2013, exhibited at Leigh Square Community Arts Village — MaruccioBelhomme also submitted an entry to the city of Port Coquitlam. Much to her surprise, both
exhibition proposals were accepted for the same time. While Face It! has a more serious tone, Art and Soul — the title of her PoCo show, which opens tomorrow (Thursday) with a reception in the Michael Wright Art Gallery from 7 to 9 p.m. — is designed to have the opposite effect. Its 67 pieces include charcoal drawings of flowers, hand-stitched quilts (a craft she picked up while wintering in Waikiki) and other images of playing. “I wanted something light and to make people happy,” she said during an interview in the PoCo gallery last week. “I wanted something that would expose my true self. It’s an example of my life.” Art and Soul is a retrospective, spanning back to her childhood in Rome. She learned from her father, who worked primarily with oil paints and was influenced by the French Impressionists. At 14, she enrolled in the fine art program at the Artistic Lyceum in Via Ripetta — the school her dad also wanted to attend but was unable — and she graduated from there four years later.
After earning a master’s degree in architecture from the University of Valle Giulia, Maruccio-Belhomme worked for the federal ministry of the Italian Cultural Heritage in Venice, Pompeii and Rome until 1986, when she moved to Canada. Until now, her artwork has only been held in private collections in Italy, Belgium (her husband’s homeland), England and Canada. Maruccio-Belhomme said she can take years to craft a piece. “I’m an architect so everything is about composition and layout. I need to have the perfect balance before I am satisfied. Everything I do is an attempt to reach perfection.” “And, when I’m done,” she said, “I feel very happy.” • Art and Soul can be seen at the Michael Wright Art Gallery in the Gathering Place (next to PoCo city hall) until Jan. 7; call 604-927-8440 or visit portcoquitlam.ca/leighsquare. The Face It! series is up at the Amelia Douglas Gallery in New Westminster until Dec. 15.

ChrisTie baCk for CulTure Crawl Coquitlam oil painter Leanne Christie returns to the Eastside Culture Crawl to display her talent in the four-day show that opens next Thursday in Vancouver. Christie, who makes the 24-km trek by bicycle to her studio at 268 Keefer St., is best known for her bold brush strokes that capture urban scenes around Metro Vancouver. Burnaby artist Dorothy Doherty, who is the city of Port Coquitlam’s current artistin-residence, is also a Crawl exhibitor.
Now in its 22nd year, the Crawl sees more than 35,000 visitors tour studios, houses and other venues between Columbia Street to Victoria Drive and from 1st Avenue to the waterfront. Crawl executive director Esther Rausenberg said the neighbourhood is home to hundreds of visual artists. But many are losing their spaces due to redevelopment. “Our mission is not only to celebrate our visual artists during the Crawl but also support their growth and vibrancy all year long,” she said in a news
release. “We are committed to working together with the artistic community towards the goal of retaining a zero loss of studio space by coming up with sustainable creative solutions and assisting artists to find suitable studio replacements so they can continue to thrive.” New for this year’s Crawl is a festival app to help navigate the area, search for artists, locate eateries and find bike parking and car-sharing vehicles; the app can be downloaded Nov. 15.

Austman working back into form Following dream season, Coquitlam skater endures illness and injury MARIO BARTEL
THE TRI-CITY NEWS
MARIO BARTEL/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Canadian Olympian Larkyn Austman is working her way back from a summer of injury and illness. Sheâ€™ll be competing at the BC/YT sectional championships at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex beginning Thursday. But waking from that was hard, she said. â€œYou come home, and now what,â€? Austman said. â€œIt brings expectations that no matter what I did, Iâ€™m still an Olympian.â€? Austman, 20, said as she recovered from her illness and worked through her injury, she also struggled to reconcile her status as an elite athlete with her love for the sport that got her there. â€œAll of a sudden I have this invisible label,â€? she said. â€œItâ€™s so important just to get your
feet under you.â€? To help her achieve that, Austman kept up her work coaching some of the youngest skaters at her home club. She also begged off the travel, glamour and pressure of the international Grand Prix circuit for smaller, regional competitions so she could smooth out the kinks in her programs and get into shape for another run at the 2019 Canadian National Skating Championship, to be held in January in Saint John, N.B.

Kayla Halliday is nonplussed as she laces up her figure skates across from Canadian Olympian Larkyn Austman prior to an afternoon training session at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex. The 13 year-old and her Coquitlam Skating Club teammate talk about dogs and whether Austman, a vegan, can eat peanut butter. Halliday is preparing to take her next step on a journey she hopes will lead her down a similar path Austman travelled to the Olympics. The Skate Canada B.C. and Yukon sectional championships that begin on Thursday at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex will be Hallidayâ€™s biggest competition as a pre-novice, the first rung on the ladder of serious skating where competitors have to develop both a short and a long program. Itâ€™s a big step up from juvenile, in which competitors skate only one 2.5 minute program. Thatâ€™s meant more work on her conditioning with dryland training like running for 45 minutes, Halliday said, as well as learning to reset her focus in competitions for a second skate. A top four result in this weekâ€™s competition will qualify Halliday for a chance to compete at the Canada Winter Games, next February in Red Deer, Alta.

in Vancouver, to score a personal best in the free skate and finish third amongst the senior women. That put her on Canadaâ€™s national team and a chance to compete at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, as well as the World Championships in Milan, Italy. While Austman failed to qualify for the finals in either event, she said putting on a red Canada jacket and competing with the best of her sport at its highest level was the fulfillment of her lifeâ€™s dream.
Larkyn Austmanâ€™s skating season is not going quite as sheâ€™d planned. Instead of competing at international Grand Prix events like Skate Canada, the Grand Prix of Helsinki and the Internationaux de France in Grenoble, France, the Canadian Olympian is lacing up her boots with her teammates at the Coquitlam Skating Club in preparation for the Skate Canada B.C. and Yukon Territory sectional championships that will be held at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex beginning on Thursday. After a summer of illness and injury, learning new short and long programs then scrapping the latter in favour of her tried-and-true routine from the musical Phantom of the Opera, Austman is getting back into shape physically and mentally. Last June, Austman was diagnosed with mononucleosis after struggling with fatigue for weeks as she worked on her new programs. Then, while she was attending a training camp in Colorado Springs in August, she sprained her ankle. But, Austman said, itâ€™s been the mental toil of being an Olympian and the weight of expectation that brings from herself and from others thatâ€™s been the most gruelling. Last January, Austman bounced back from a disappointing skate in her short program at the Canadian National Skating Championships, held at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird sports centre

Royals revved for national championship berth Eight teams set to do battle in tournament at Percy Perry Stadium DAN OLSON
NEW WEST RECORD
The Douglas College Royals women’s soccer team are disappointed they didn’t win their way into the Canadian Collegiate Athletic
Association’s national championship that begins today (Wednesday) at Coquitlam’s Percy Perry Stadium. But the team’s coach says he hopes his charges are hungrier than ever to make their automatic berth as the tournament’s hosts count. Chris Laxton said his team’s failure to advance into the PacWest final after the Royals were ousted in a 1-0 loss to the Capilano Blues should be a motivator as the team begins its quest for the national championship at 5:30 p.m. with a
match against the Quebec and four-time defending CCAA champs, Elan de Garneau. “We know what we have to do,” Laxton said. “We need to just have a hungrier attitude and make better use of our chances.” Douglas lost 1-0 to Garneau in last year’s national tournament. Laxton noted the Royals’ four losses this season in league play were also by 1-0 scores. That reflects how crucial a timely finish is, he said.
“It’s been incredibly hard to claw back after trailing this year,” Laxton said. “It’s not going to get easier at the nationals.” Laxton said the team’s offensive struggles in those 1-0 losses has put a bright spotlight on the Royals’ defence, which is anchored by veteran keeper Alexa Gazzola. The Little Flower Academy alumna was a major component of last year’s charge to the nationals, where the Royals finished fifth, and she’s been a

BURNABY/ TRI-CITIES WEEKLY SNAPSHOT
B.C. government cracks down on condo and farmland speculation The B.C. government is aiming to crack down on two key areas of real estate speculation with new legislation introduced this week. One of those pieces was the promised condo-flipping registry launched November 5, which is designed help crack down on tax evasion and create transparency in B.C.’s real estate market. The new regulations will require developers selling presale condos and other strata units to report contract assignments on those units, and ensure all buyers are aware of the new rules. A contract assignment is when a buyer sells the purchase contract of a presale unit to another buyer, prior to completion. The system as it currently exists allows a buyer to flip that unit to another buyer for a higher price without a centralized record of such transactions, which has made it easy for unscrupulous real estate speculators to evade income tax on the profits made from the sale. This has created an attractive method for such speculators to make fast, easy money on buying and flipping presale units, which many people argue has fuelled rising real estate
prices across the province. The registry of assignments, called the Condo and Strata Assignment Integrity Register (CSAIR), will create a database of buyers who have flipped the units that they purchased. This is intended to create much more transparency in the process, and will enable the B.C. government to pursue condo flippers for the applicable taxes. Carole James, Minister of Finance, said, “We will not allow real estate speculators and tax frauds to take advantage of loopholes in the system any longer, and this register sends a clear message. The days of avoiding taxes through condo flipping are over. This register will help bring fairness and integrity back to B.C.’s real estate market, so that people can afford homes in the communities where they live and work.” NO MEGA-MANSIONS ON FARMLAND Farmland across B.C. is set to be protected from real estate development and land speculation under a new legislative bill introduced November 5.
