Plantsand shrubsimmediatelynext to a homeshould be low-density andfire resistant, withmoist, suppleleaves, andwatery, odourlesssap Cedar,spruce, juniperandpine should be avoided, and grassshould be trimmedtolessthan10 centimetres. Theidea, Scallion said, is tocreateakindnon-combustible zone of about1.5 metres around thehome that can bebolstered with ground coverlikecrushed gravelorstonefor extraprotection. Beyondthat, seasonal debrisfromtreesshouldbe cleared, mulches avoided, firewood piles keptclearof any structuresand firepits located at leastthree metres from anycombustible material. As well,homeowners should have toolslike shovels, rakes, axes,a garden hose andsprinklers readily availabletohelpsuppress any wildfiresthat might comenear. Scallionsaid most of the measures arecommon sensesthat should become second nature asthey’reimplemented. “It’sbaby steps,”hesaid. “Italldoesn’t have to happen all at once.” To book afree FireSmart assessment, email Port Moody’sfiredepartment at pmfd.info@portmoody.ca.

Since it wasacquired in2016, Port Moody Fire Rescue’s wildlands squad truck hasprobablyspent more service time outside thecommunity than in the citywhere it’s based. Buthotter,driersummer weatherbroughton by a changingclimate couldtip that balancetheotherway. Jeff Scallionandhisfellow firefightersare workingto ensurethecity is ready. Alreadythis year,crews have conducted FireSmart assessmentson25homesin neighbourhoodsthat border Port Moody’s naturalsurroundings of heavilyforested mountainsides. Scallion,who carries out many ofthose assessments, wishesmore residents would takeadvantageof thefree service,evengrouping appointments withtheir neighbours because ifa wildfire threatensaneighbourhood, it canquicklyspreadtoeven those homes thathave taken measures tolessentheir risk. Thosemeasuresinclude removing combustible materialslike wood from propertiesor under decks, keeping rooftopsclearof debrissuchasdriedleaves andpineneedles,ensuring roofsandsiding arein good conditionandclearing out dead vegetation. “The goalis toprevent emberandashes from ignitingstructures,” Scallionsaid.

BC Liberalleader Kevin Falcon faces hisfirst bigtestearly nextmonthwhenhisparty triestodefend the Surrey South seat ina byelection setfor Sept.10. Losingthat riding wouldbedevastatingfor the BC Liberals,asthey struggleto regainatoeholdin Metro Vancouver, where about halftheelec toral ridings arelocated. However, historysuggeststhe BC Liberals have tobeconsideredthefavouriteto winthe seat. That isbecausethe partythat formsasitting B.C. government rarely wins byelectionsduring itsterm. Ofthelasttwodozen provincial byelections, datingbackto1989,the governmentoftheday won justthreeofthem. During theirtimein power, the BC Liberals lost seven byelectionsto theNDP. TheNDPgovernment ofthe1990slostsix straight byelectionsin ridings they hadnever won inanygeneralelection. So onthis point history favoursthe BC Liberalsto be victoriousnextmonth. However, history doesn’talways repeat itself,andthelastprovincial election,in2020, showeda huge surgein NDPsupport comparedto previouselectionsinthat riding (orinthat partof Surrey). TheNDP vote rose dramatically (bymore than3,000 voters)comparedtothe2017 contest, whilethe BC Liberal vote dropped by morethan500 andtheir margin ofvictoryshrunkto1,200from 4,800. Thedramatic populationgrowthof Surrey and itsincreasedurbanization all work totheNDP’s advantage, aswasevidentin the2020election. The ridingsin South Surrey have long beenconsideredsafe BC Liberal seats, butthose days appearto be over. TheNDPis now much morecompetitive (itlost theneighbouring riding of Surrey–White Rock by just224 votes,the second closest resultintheelection)inthat region. Another potential wild card iswhetherthe BC Conservative Party will fielda candidate. It did so inthe Vancouver–Quilchena byelection won by Falcon,andthe party candidatetook6.6 percentofthe vote—a highenoughtotalthat could seriously hurt the BC Liberalsshouldthe Conservatives winasimilarlevelofsupportin Surrey South. Buta byelection can turnintoa referendumon thesitting government’s performance, and,while theNDP hasbeenenjoyingaconsistentlylarge lead over the BC Liberals inopinion polls, there seemsto be afairamount ofanxiety outthereas peoplegrapple with risinginflationandashaky health-caresystem. TheNDP canaffordto lose the byelection, butit isa must-winforthe rebuilding BC Liberals and theirnewleader. Keith Baldrey ischief political reporter forGlobal BC.

TheEditor: Re: Letter: Alcoholin parks sendsthewrongmessage (Aug4,2022) In response to Dr Daszkiewicz, Iwas sad and shocked at thebackwards step recommended by her. Reagan’s campaign of don’tdodrugsinthe80s and 90s wasa catastrophic failure. My husbandandIwalked through Lions Park on a recent Saturdayevening and thoughtthe atmospherewas wonderful. Largefamilies were enjoying eachotherin abig safeplace. Witha lotof peoplein condos andsmallerliving areas,thisisa welcome breaktomeet inlarge groups. Buthey,let’s look at the this doctor’s ideaforamoment. First, we cannoteatin parksasobesityis a far bigger death sentence and addictionthan alcoholis. Andlet’s reallyprotectthose kidsand pull outalltheplay equipment so no one gets hurt. Iactually believeafter seeing someofthe people in theparkwho were consumingalcoholthat they were a far better exampletochildrenhow responsibleadults behave. Aroundthe worldwhere itisacceptabletodrinkin parks withfriendsandfamily,I have never seenintoxicationlikeI have observedin my own country. Let’s commend our Port Coquitlamcouncilfor being progressiveand treating theirtaxpayersasgrownups who candecidethingsfor themselvesinsteadof more restrictions. Bravo, PoCo! Justafootnote, butI have neverchose to have adrink inthe park. But again,that is my choiceto make. MichelleAmann PortCoquitlam PortCoquitlam,CoquitlamandPortMoodyallnowallowalcoholconsumptioninsev-

Laon Kim’slifeis about to get awholelot busier. Notthat the14-year-old swimmerdoesn’t already have aloton his plate, training withhis Hyack Swim Clubteammatesfour morningsandfiveafternoons a week as wellasstarting Grade9 at Coquitlam’s Gleneagle Secondary school in September. But winning six individualandteammedals at the Canada Summer Games that recentlywrappedup in Niagara Falls, Ont.,as well as settinganew national age group recordin the 800mfreestyle at the2022 Canadian Junior and Senior Championshipsin Montreal, Que.,whereheamassedfour goldmedals,threesilvers andtwobronze, has raised expectations. Andrew Lennstrom, Hyack’shead coach,said Kim has“bloomed abit youngerthanothers. He stepsup at a lot of thebig races.” Kim himselfisalsosettinghissightshigher. He’s targetingthe2024 Summer Olympic Gamesin Paris“for theexperience,” and by 2028, whenthe Gamesarein Los Angeles,he’llbeinhiscompetitiveprime. “Iliketo be challenged,” Kimsaid. “That’swhat pushes me to getbetter.” Hismother, Rosa,said eventhoughLaontried severalsportsafter thefamily immigratedto Coquitlam from Singapore when he wasfive, hetooktothewater immediately. Two years after hisfirstswimminglessons at theCityCentre Aquatic Complex,he was alreadyin the competitive stream with Hyack. Kimsaidheenjoysthe disciplineofpractice, even ifitmeans gettingup at four inthe morning so he can be at the poolin timefor some drylandtraining before gettinginthewater at 5:45 a.m. He saidthe camaraderieof hisswimclubteammates keepshimengaged,the payoffof personal bestsand medals keephim pushing forward. Many ofthose medalsare displayed proudlyina room inthefamily’s homeon Burke Mountain,said Rosa. “Itinspireshim.” Kim saidwhileheknew he haditinhimto setthe new national recordfor his age groupinthe800m freestyle,hissuccessesare coming at alldistances andstrokes; at the Canada Gameshismedal haul included goldinthe 50mfreestyleand atnationalshe won gold medalsinthe400m and800mfreestyle as wellas bronzeinthe100m butterfly. Lennstromsaidspecialization will come; thenext bigstepforthe youngswimmer will becompetition againstolder athletesand eventuallyinto meets with no agegroups. “Tryingtofindwaysto keepthechallengegoing andthechasealiveisimportant,”hesaid. That suits Kim justfine. “Iwantto getusedto peoplebeingnext tomeand actually racing me,” hesaid. “Ithelpsmotivateme.”

MORESUCCESS In additionto Kim’s sixmedals at the Canada Games,Coquitlam’s Peter Huang won fivemedalsin the pool and Justin Jung won two. At nationals,the Hyack club finished secondin team pointsand third overallin themen’steam category.
