MLA MIKE FARNWORTH

MLA may join race for new NDP boss By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

CRAIG HODGE/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth is expected to make an announcement on Thursday regarding his bid for the leadership of the New Democratic Party. It is believed Farnworth, who also serves as opposition house leader and critic for public safety and the solicitor general, will throw his hat into the race to succeed Carole James, who announced her resignation last month.

Ryan Sclater of Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox Ravens defends Jeffri Agiba of Coquitlam’s Gleneagle Talons in senior boys’ high school basketball play at the annual Legal Beagle tournament at Fox. Ravens beat their crosstown rivals 79-43 in this outing and finished fourth overall in a tourney stacked with some of B.C.’s best teams. See Sports, page 31.

Crowding to blame? Union says overcrowding behind jail hostage taking By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Top library books of 2010? See page 16

A hostage taking at North Fraser Pretrial Centre in Port Coquitlam is one more example of the violence caused by overcrowding in the provincial jail system, said a union official. Dean Purdy, the chair of the correctional and sheriff services branch of the BCGEU, said double-bunking at the facility has increased tensions among inmates and guards.

“It is another violent incident in our jails,” he said. “This is something that seems to be increasing at all nine of our provincial facilities.” Friday’s incident occurred shortly after 11 p.m. in the segregation unit of the jail when an inmate grabbed his cellmate and held a homemade knife to his throat. The stand-off lasted for about 30 minutes, Purdy said, as a corrections officer slowly defused the situation. Because of overcrowding, it is customary for many of the segregation cells to be double-bunked, he added. “There are still times when we do see single bunks for safety reasons or if someone is on suicide watch,” he said.

“But it is a regular occurrence that seg units are all double bunked.” The hostage taking is the 35th violent incident the facility has seen in the last two years, a statistic Purdy attributes to poor inmate-to-officer ratios. In 2002, there were 20 inmates to every staff member, a number he said has ballooned to 60 to one at NFPC. A spokesperson for the Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General said the inmate who took his cellmate hostage has been individually confined and an investigation is being conducted by the RCMP and corrections officials. see MORE JAILS JAILS,, page 8

Walk in the park reveals tree damage Who is ‘girdling’ trees in PoMo’s Art Wilkinson Park? By Todd Coyne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A vandal has “girdled” or stripped a ring of bark from three trees in a Port Moody park, a crime that likely spells death for the large alders. Derek Wilson, a retired engineer and longtime Glenayre resident, walks his dog in Art Wilkinson Park every day and had been out with Roxy on Jan. 4 when he came upon a tree whose trunk he thought looked to have been chewed by an animal. Upon closer inspection, however, Wilson noticed the deep ring chopped into the tree trunk about a foot above the ground looked like it was done with a sharp, flat blade — like that of an axe or hatchet. Wilson then noticed similar damage to another alder about two metres away and immediately notified Port Moody’s parks and environment department, which found a third damaged alder in the park later that afternoon. Like severing an artery, girdling kills the tree by destroying its inner and outer bark tissues which carry water, nutrients and sap — the tree’s “lifeblood”— between its roots and leaves.

CRAIG HODGE/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Moody resident Derek Wilson said he discovered several trees that had been ‘girdled’ while walking his dog. Port Moody city officials have handed the investigation over to PoMo Police, who are looking for witnesses to the acts of vandalism that will likely kill the trees. “It doesn’t look like something that naturally occurred so as a result we notified the Port Moody Police Department,” said Leslyn Johnson, spokesperson for the city. “We’re trying to de-

termine why someone might want to damage these particular trees.” She added that city staff would closely monitor Art Wilkinson Park for any further damage to the city’s trees.

Port Moody Police spokesperson Const. Bill Kim condemned the vandalism as “a random act of stupidity” likely perpetrated by “one or two non-nature-lovers.” Kim said that patrol offi-

cers have been advised to be on the lookout for suspicious activity around city parks and asked the public to call police immediately if they suspect someone of damaging city property.

The three vandalized alders are part of a natural buf fer between the Wilkinson Park playground and community centre on one side, and Port Moody’s Petro-Canada oil refinery on the other — which makes it hard for Wilson to imagine why someone would want to kill them. “You hear about people doing this when someone’s tree is blocking their view,” Wilson said, noting no views are obstructed by these trees. In fact, from the crouching perspective of where the rings were cut into the trees, no homes or residences are even visible, leading Wilson to wonder if these specific trees were targeted to protect the perpetrator from being caught in the act. “One of the reasons we moved into this neighbourhood was because of the natural areas like Burnaby Mountain and Wilkinson Park,” said Wilson, who has lived near the park for 12 years. “I want to get the word out about this or else it’ll continue. If the culprit knows the police have been notified, then they’ll stop.” Wilson said that he has seen Art Wilkinson Park become something of a latenight hangout for teenagers drinking alcohol and causing vandalism behind the community centre since the park’s 2005 renaming to honour the late Port Moody councillor and Glenayre resident. tcoyne@tricitynews.com

Sports groups want turf in Coquitlam arena More sporting groups could use arena with addition of portable turf, say proponents By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Sports groups at the Coquitlam Sports Centre want to see a turf on the main arena floor. On Monday, Ed Ponsart of the Coquitlam Sports Centre Users’ Association told the city’s recreation committee the artificial

surface over the concrete floor is something all the clubs want and recently gave a unanimous thumbs-up to the proposal. In his PowerPoint presentation, Ponsart listed the benefits of the indoor turf, among them: • increasing multi-use for sports such as lawn bowling, field hockey, tennis, badminton and baseball; • attracting more teams, thereby increasing attendance and profits to the city; • reducing injury rates for players; and • cutting washing times for the floor, especially on Saturdays during the lacrosse season before Coquitlam Adanacs games.

Ponsart, who was accompanied by Adanacs general manager Les Wingrove and Andrea Mattinson, president of the Coquitlam Sports Centre Users’ Association, cited the example of Langley Township’s events centre, where an American product called Rec-Turf — made with a blend of polypropylene and nylon fibres — has garnered rave reviews. Its game lines are attached with Velcro fasteners, he said. To place the same artificial flooring in the Poirier rink would cost the city around $115,000 plus taxes, Ponsart said, adding the custom installation would take about a day-and-a-half.

Coun. Doug Macdonell, chair of the city’s recreation committee, asked Lori MacKay, Coquitlam’s general manager of parks and rec, to prepare a report for city council on the group’s proposal. Home to the Adanacs Sr. and Jr. teams as well as the Coquitlam Express Junior A hockey club, the Coquitlam Sports Centre opened last fall after a $57.6-million makeover. It was the largest capital initiative in Coquitlam’s history and included a new annex, a new year-round curling/ice surface, expanded seating, seismic upgrades and amenities. jwarren@tricitynews.com

West, Pollock pushing PoCo MLA to run to top NDP job continued from front page

His announcement will take place at noon at the Gathering Place in Leigh Square, next to Port Coquitlam city hall. Last month, PoCo councillors Glenn Pollock and Brad West launched a Facebook website promoting Farnworth’s leadership bid. West, who works as the MLA’s constituency assistant, said the idea has garnered support in the community and across the province.

“We are very excited about the possibility of Mike running and bringing change to the province,” West said. “I know he has been humbled by the support.” Farnworth was unavailable for comment Monday and Tuesday. Farnworth’s political career started at Port Coquitlam city hall, where he served three terms as a city councillor. He made the jump to provincial politics in 1991 when the NDP took power under Mike Harcourt

PoCo has until fall but plans to finish road work by spring By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A funding extension for the Broadway Street reconstruction project is being requested by the city of Port Coquitlam, which will allow crews until Oct. 31 to complete the road work. Originally, contributions from higher levels of government were dependent on construction being completed by March 31, 2011 as part of the Build Canada Fund. But the federal government announced before Christmas that it would give municipalities additional time to complete projects that were underway. While the Broadway Street reconstruction project is expected to be completed by the spring, PoCo Mayor Greg Moore said the extension was a precautionary measure. “We are working on schedule,” said PoCo Mayor Greg Moore. “We would be foolish not to apply for that extension, just in case.” Without an extension, all invoices sent to the federal and provincial governments, which are each contributing $3.7 million to the project, will not be paid, he said. While milder temperatures would allow the project to be completed on schedule, PoCo’s director of engineering, Igor Zahynacz, told The Tri-City News last month that additional time would allow the initial layers of paving to settle before the top layer is added. That concern was echoed during Monday’s council meeting by Coun. Darrell Penner, who said it is important the work is done properly and not rushed simply to meet a funding deadline. “I’ll be happy to see this project over,” he said. “But if it is not done correctly, that road will get

eaten up pretty quick.” The Build Canada Fund was launched in the midst of a deep financial downturn in an effort to boost the economy while upgrading municipal roads, bridges and sewer lines. The Broadway Street reconstruction project has seen 950 m of box culverts installed underneath the road, along with a new water main. Parts of the new traffic signals at Cameron and Langan Avenue have been completed along with a water and sanitary connection between Industrial Avenue and the Mary Hill Bypass. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Rates for services on way up Water rates are up and sewer rates are down but, overall, Port Coquitlam residents will pay more when their utility bill arrives this year. Flow-through costs from Metro Vancouver will mean a 10% increase in 2011 water rates, from $334 to $368 per single family home. Sewer costs are expected to decrease 1.7% meaning a single family home will pay $280 in 2011, instead of the $285 charged in 2010. Water rates are on the rise due to several major infrastructure projects, including the Seymour/ Capilano twin tunnels and the Coquitlam UV disinfection facility, which are expected to be built between now and 2013. The Port Mann No. 2 Fraser River Crossing Project, which will cost $239 million, is also pushing rates up along with several drinking water treatment programs. The total price tag for Metro Vancouver’s capital program is $2.2 billion, which is expected to be paid out between now and 2020.

New ctte. positions Port Coquitlam councillors take on new roles in 2011 after Mayor Greg Moore announced a shuffling of city committee chairs at Monday’s council meeting. • The community safety committee will be chaired by Coun. Glenn Pollock, with Coun. Mike Forrest the deputy chair. • The environmental enhancement committee will be chaired by Coun. Sherry Carroll; deputy chair, Coun. Brad West. • The healthy community committee will be chaired by Forrest; deputy chair, Pollock. • The smart growth committee will be chaired by West; deputy chair, Coun. Michael Wright. • The social inclusion committee will be chaired by Coun. Darrell Penner; deputy chair, Carroll. • The transportation solutions and operations committee will be chaired by Wright; deputy chair, Penner. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

PoCo on board for higher min. wage Articles by Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Coquitlam is calling on the provincial government to increase the minimum wage from $8 per hour to $10 per hour and to eliminate the $6 training wage. During Monday night’s meeting, council voted unanimously in favour of a recommendation that would see the city join other municipalities in lobbying for the change. Coun. Brad West said that with B.C. having the highest cost of living in the country, an increase in minimum wage is long overdue. “It is well past time this comes to British Columbia,” he said. “I am happy to support this.” B.C. increased its minimum wage to $8 per hour in 2001 and created the $6 training in 2002. The training wage is applicable to all workers with fewer than 500 hours of accumulated work experience. Mayor Greg Moore also supported the recommendation but acknowledged that with no incremental increase to the minimum wage in close to a decade, a jump to $10 could be detrimental to small businesses. “It creates such a gap,” he said. “It creates problems for businesses because there hasn’t been an increase over time.” While Port Coquitlam has no jurisdiction over minimum wage policy, the city now joins a growing list of municipal councils, including Coquitlam’s, pressuring the

“It creates such a gap. It creates problems for businesses because there hasn’t been an increase over time.” PoCo Mayor Greg Moore, who supported the council call for increase in B.C.’s minimum wage government for change. B.C. has the lowest minimum wage in the country. In March, Ontario raised its minimum wage by 75 cents to $10.25, the highest in Canada. Nunavut and Newfoundland have $10 minimum wages while Quebec follows with $9.50. It’s $9.20 in Nova Scotia, $9 in Manitoba, $9.25 in Saskatchewan, $8.80 in Alberta, $8.93 in the Yukon and $8.70 on Prince Edward Island. New Brunswick raised its minimum wage from $8.50 to $9 an hour in September and plans to further increase it to $10 by the summer. BC Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair has pushed the provincial government to increase the minimum wage and eliminate the $6 training wage. The BC Fed calculates that inflation has increased nearly 15% in the last decade and that B.C. also has a higher cost of living than other provinces. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

THE SMART RESOLUTIONS ARE THE EASY ONES TO KEEP.

Search officials issue a warning By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The Canadian Avalanche Centre has issued a warning for people who plan on heading into B.C.’s back country, which includes Coquitlam’s Burke Mountain area. The centre issued a release this week saying that new snow may not bond well with the existing base, increasing the likelihood of avalanches. “We have got a fair amount of mountain in our area and they are very rocky and extreme,” he said. “We get more snow on Burke Mountain than the North Shore mountains.” While not many people venture past the snow line at this time of year, it is important that those who do plan on trekking outdoors are prepared, said Coquitlam Search and Rescue manager Dwight Yochim. Keeping an eye on the weather forecast and being properly equipped for the trip is essential to survive an emergency situation, he said. “Usually, people who do go out at this time of year are somewhat prepared for the elements but they are usually not prepared to spend overnight,” Yochim said. “A lot of people will carry a cellphone but they won’t have a flashlight.” Back-country enthusiasts are encouraged to visit the search and rescue website (www.coquitlam-sar. bc.ca) for more information about weather patterns and necessary equipment. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Pursuit starts in Van, ends in PoCo The pursuit of an alleged car thief involving five cities, four police forces and two of f-duty cops ended with an arrest in Port Coquitlam last Friday. According to Coquitlam RCMP, just after noon Jan. 7, an o f f - d u t y Va n c o u ve r police officer reported seeing a 1992 Jee p Cherokee being driven e r r a t i c a l l y. P o l i c e quickly located the vehicle and, after determining it had been stolen, initiated a short pursuit. T he VPD of ficers lost the Jee p as it headed into Burnaby

and called off the pursuit. But an off-duty Bur naby RCMP officer spotted the vehicle being driven dangerously and followed it to the Port Moody city limits. Port Moody police took up the trail through the city into Coquitlam, where the vehicle had been stolen earlier in the day. When Coquitlam Mounties attempted to pull over the vehicle, the driver took of f, making it to the intersection of Lougheed Highway and Pitt River Road before the Jeep suffered a mechanical

failure. The suspect attempted to flee the scene but was arrested just before 2 p.m. and remains in custody. T revo r W h i t e l aw, 28, is facing charges of possession of stolen property, possession of stolen property over $5,000, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from a peace officer, care or control of a vehicle while impaired, care or control of a vehicle over .08 and two counts of wilfully resisting or obstructing a peace officer. He is expected to ap-

pear in Port Coquitlam court tomorrow at 9 a.m.

B&E BANDITS The Por t Moody Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in tracking down items stolen in several break-and-enters earlier this week. More than $1,200 worth of surveillance equipment was stolen from the Suterbrook housing complex and is believed to have been taken sometime Sunday night. Officers are currently reviewing surveillance footage to identify pos-

sible suspects. Another break-in occurred at a residence on Seaview Drive Monday between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. Thieves pried open the rear sliding door of the home and rum-

Violent and property crime has steadily fallen in recent years in B.C. but most of Canada is also enjoying lower crime rates. B.C. ranked eighth among Canadian provinces for crime in 2009, according to the B.C. Progress Board’s annual report. The combined violent and property crime rate fell 27% from 9.8 crimes per 100 people in 2000 to 7.2/100 in 2009. NDP public safety critic Mike Farnworth said B.C. might not have Canada’s third worst crime rate if the government had done more than “pay lip service” to the challenge of gang violence. He noted pre-trial jails are 200% over capacity and courts are clogged with cases because of a shortage of judges, prosecutors and other staff, causing some cases to be tossed out of court. Farnworth said the government is letting criminals take advantage of the overworked system. jnagel@blackpress.ca

Connections, in from the cold Numbers down at area shelters over holidays By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The holiday season was a quiet affair at Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship, where fewer homeless people sought shelter than in previous years. But smaller numbers made for more connections and several people made steps to improve their lives, according church pastors and homeless advocates. Eagle Ridge hosted the cold/ wet weather mat program with the support of Heritage Mountain, Hyde Creek and Hillside community churches in December, and gave shelter to 50 men and seven women over the month. “This is the third year and it’s become a bit of a routine,” said Pastor Doug Monkemeier, who said plenty of volunteers were on hand to help set up and put away the mats and serve food for the program run by the Hope for Freedom Society. But there were some surprises during a month that began with a Christmas banquet for 200 people hosted by a group of motorcycle clubs. Monkemeier said the death of Irvin Wickens, a well-known homeless man, came as a shock to many who took it as a sign they needed to do something to change their lives. “They were pretty sobered by that. [They thought] that could be them if

The death of Irvin Wickens (shown above) shook many local homeless people, says the pastor of a church that hosted a shelter last month. they didn’t get things worked out.” One man started attending church and spent much of Christmas with a local family while a pastor at another church made a surprising connection with another homeless individual and still is amazed at how things turned out. Santosh Ninan, pastor at Heritage Mountain Community Service, which meets at Inlet Centre in Port Moody, said he was late for his shift one morning and so instead of helping in the kitchen, started chatting with a homeless man. After a few minutes of conversation, the two realized they grew up in the same neighbourhood in Saskatoon and attended the same school. Their reminiscences revealed

they were in the same Grade 3 class, knew where each other lived as kids, knew each other’s friends and recalled their teacher, Miss Martin, with fondness. “It was remarkable to me: We started out the same in life and we took different paths and God brought us together,” Ninan said. Another church member invited the man for lunch and gave him a bus ticket to return home to Saskatchewan to spend Christmas with family he hadn’t seen in a long time, Ninan said. “It showed that the mat program, for me anyway, it allows these people to make connections with the community that they wouldn’t otherwise,” he said.

In addition to personal connections, five people went into detox in December and one person found housing, according to Rob Thiessen, managing director for the Hope for Freedom Society. He said while the number of homeless people using the shelter this year is down from last winter, connections made through the temporary shelter program have resulted in more people making choices to get off the street. “What we say is if we have the ability to shelter them we can get them off the street,” Thiessen said. Some people, however, may be put off by the requirement to leave their belongings behind and take a van to the shelter, which could be another explanation for the decline in the number of people using the shelter, according to Monkemeier. “While this is an attempt to help, there is some intrinsic hurdles that it creates. It’s not a walk-in; they have to ride the [Hope For Freedom] van to get here, and they can’t bring their stuff. I think that discourages some,” he said. This month, Coquitlam Alliance Church, also in Coquitlam, is hosting the cold/ wet weather mat program. • EPILOGUE: Last Saturday, Santosh Ninan’s old schoolmate called from Saskatoon and said he was sharing accommodations with a friend and taking a course to become a security guard. “His story is going to end well,” said Ninan. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside

he Beedie Group will soon know what residents think of a 24-storey tower proposed for the corner of Austin Avenue and Blue Mountain in Coquitlam. An open house for the draft Austin Heights Neighbourhood Plan this month will likely draw more residents than usual to a public meeting because the tower, although not the subject of the meeting, gives shape to the city’s preferred vision for revitalizing the area. The tower isn’t slated to go before council until after the Austin Heights plan is passed but residents will consider it a harbinger of things to come and will be interested in learning more and getting their views known. It’s hard to imagine a tower on the former gas station site and it will be the tallest building in the region because of its location on the hill. But, if it’s approved, it will set the stage for transforming the area into a compact, mixed-use transit corridor only a few bus stops from the Lougheed SkyTrain station. The tower aside, the preferred concept plan under consideration by the city will radically transform the Austin commercial district from a small-town service area to a dense urban village with at least one, possibly two, towers on every block, pedestrian plazas and a high street on Ridgeway Avenue. Neighbourhoods to the north of Austin will continue to be home to medium-density apartments and neighbourhoods to the south will be given more latitude in the kind of in-fill housing that will be allowed, including, possibly, laneway and coach housing. The public is also being asked whether the commercial core should be expanded to include Ridgeway West, an area including the Coquitlam Legion, and the block between Marmont and Gatensbury streets. So far, little public comment has accompanied the Beedie Group’s tower proposal but that could be because the project is in its very early stages and residents and businesses in the area have been involved in planning for the transition of Austin Avenue for a long time. The tower, it should be said, comes as no surprise, although it’s much earlier than expected given the fact that Austin’s redevelopment wasn’t expected to roll out for another decade or two. Still, as it will be the first, and possibly the gateway to the new Austin Heights vision, Beedie and the city have a significant job to do to make sure it sets a good example for the rest of the development still to come.

Desperation breeds some worthy reforms BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA he crisis over the harmonized sales tax and subsequent leadership contest have shaken up the BC Liberal party and produced some serious suggestions for reform. For the post-Gordon Campbell Liberals, accountability is an unavoidable theme. Shuswap MLA George Abbott led the way last week with a package of initiatives, including restructuring the way the legislature works. Abbott proposes moving the annual throne speech, where the government sets out its priorities for the year, from the spring to the fall — hardly an exciting reform but it leads to a couple of important changes. First, it implies that there will actually be a fall legislative session, something Campbell first instituted and then proceeded

T

to truncate or cancel most years to avoid opposition questions. Abbott also wants to move the scheduled election date to the fall, as early as 2013 if the opposition will agree. Both parties have noted that May elections disrupt the spring budget process, resulting in delays and uncertainty for voters at the most critical time. Longtime observers will recall the circus that resulted from the ruling party controlling not only election timing but also the legislature schedule. Governments could (and did) table reams of complicated legislation at the end of the spring session to ambush the opposition, which would react with delay tactics that dragged into the night and into the summer. It was a travesty. Campbell deserves credit for imposing a sane schedule on the legislature, although it was easy when his government held all but two seats. He then squandered that progress by retreating from the legislature when faced with his first substantial opposition. Whoever wins the leadership should restore

that commitment. Christy Clark has taken up the cause raised by independent MLAs to restore the proper function of legislative committees. To the average person trying to pay the mortgage, this is also about as exciting as watching a mailbox rust but it, too, is important. Campbell tried this once in 2005. Stung by the loss of north coastal seats, he created a committee to hold hearings on fish farming and gave the NDP a majority. But the tradition of partisan warfare dies hard and the opposition members ended up demanding a ban on open-pen fish farms in five years, whether closed containment is feasible or not. Still, hearings were held in affected communities and a genuine debate ensued. Clark is proposing these touring committees become the norm and whoever wins should follow through with that as well. Kevin Falcon caused a stir last week with his suggestion for merit pay for teachers. Falcon cites Australia’s program, which

has bonus payments offered outside union contracts. Again, whoever replaces Campbell should proceed with this idea. It’s similar to what the Obama administration in the U.S. has embraced, despite political backlash from its unionized teachers. This week, the B.C. NDP contest starts to take shape after the entry of three fringe candidates who haven’t done much to address the policy vacuum at the heart of the anti-Carole James revolt. Just as the BC Liberals got arrogant after nearly a decade in power, the NDP grew dangerously dependent on the anti-Campbell theme that brought them back to life. If the political upheaval of 2010 results in new leaders for both parties actually committing to serious debate about ideas, it will be worth it.

TRI-CITYY LETTERS Traffic & tranquility are among tower concerns The Editor, Re. “Towering changes in the works for Austin Heights” (The Tri-City News, Jan. 7). It is too bad that this 24-storey, 169-unit condo tower proposed for the corner of Austin Avenue and Blue Mountain Street in Coquitlam isn’t on the proposed Evergreen Line route. Hopefully, all site access for residents and the at-grade retail businesses will be off Ridgeway Avenue, otherwise the peak-period traffic flow on both Austin and Blue Mountain will be further degraded. This redevelopment may be the first of more to follow. The water, storm, sewer and electric utility

services may have to be upgraded to support the hundreds of new residential units. These details need to be considered when reviewing the draft Austin Heights Neighbourhood Plan, as noted in the article. D. B. Wilson, Port Moody

LEAVE AREA ALONE

The Editor, The proponents of the proposed tower at 955 Austin Ave. in Coquitlam live in a different world from the residents in and around the Austin Heights area. Unless I am mistaken, I think many of the latter, like me, would resent any highrise tower there and see it as a step to urban blandness.

Besides being an eyesore clashing with the suburban surroundings, a tower would bring more traffic and the problems it causes, such as more reckless drivers. And more residents don’t necessarily mean more customers for local businesses as they may do their shopping elsewhere. I have never known any residents who crave high-density development. I prefer Austin Heights to keep its low-key, suburban nature but neighbourhoods like Austin Heights are being lost by development proponents. Can’t they just leave functioning and tranquil communities alone? Vincent Lizee, Coquitlam

The more things change for cyclists... The Editor, Re. “Cyclist, council looking at route” (The Tri-City News, Jan. 7). Reporter Todd Coyne’s article about bike routes sounds very familiar. Retur ning from France to Vancouver on a Labour Day was not a good idea. There was no

one home to come and pick me and my bicycle up. So I changed, put my bike together and rode home to Port Coquitlam. It was then I realized the United Boulevard interchange design screw-up was a serious hazard. Luckily, I possessed a good sprint and a tail wind, and thus

survived that hairy criss-cross where Highway 7 meets United Boulevard. I wrote letters suggesting a bike path could fit between the Highway 7 eastbound lane and the railway. That was 1991 and we are still dithering about cycling routes. Harold Bridge, Port Coquitlam

Is Your Vehicle Ready for Winter ?

PM price too high The Editor, Re. “Assessments up in the Tri-Cities” (The Tri-City News, Jan. 5). The article regarding increased assessments and accompanying examples should have dug further as the assessed value of our 19-yearold townhouse in Treetops increased by 26.36%. This is a $135,000 increase and, if all 172 units are in this ballpark, it generates well over $20 million of increased assessments. For this we have to maintain all our own roads, street lighting, fire hydrants, snow clearing, water and sewer systems, etc. as the city of Port Moody responsibility stops at the property line. This increase is over double the any other strata townhome illustrated. I don’t think this city is worth it. David K. Finlay, Port Moody

Metro transport hub comes to Coquitlam By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A new regional transportation management hub will soon be at Coquitlam’s doorstep. The city recently beat out Surrey in its bid to have the four-storey facility on the former Bargain Castle/Able Auctions site, between the TransCanada and Lougheed highways, to provide a one-stop shop for the Ministry of Transportation in Metro Vancouver. The building, for which development variance plans were okayed by the city’s land-use committee Monday and will go before council next week, will have about 300 workers — to be consolidated from other offices in the region — and house tolling operations for the new Port Mann Bridge, including collection services, a call centre, systems operations and support facilities and other administrative functions. As well, it will serve as a post-disaster command centre for transportation issues in Metro Vancouver. Coquitlam city councillors praised the ministry for its use of green standards with the 79,650-square foot centre, which will be built to a LEED gold certification, have a green roof and deck, triple-glazed windows for soundproofing and sun shading, and use

Barrie Lynch added. “We need to bring in more government locations... That would be a benefit to the residents.” Yesterday, a ministry spokesperson said no new jobs will be created because of the move. Coun. Selina Robinson also said she would like the ministry to place a “Welcome to Coquitlam” sign on the building, given it will be “iconic” and be a “gateway” to the city. Allueva said he would speak to ministry officials about her suggestion. The facility is expected to be open by next year. jwarren@tricitynews.com

PMD (www.pacificmobilede pots.com) has been around for 10 years in Victoria and recently started in Metro Vancouver at a homeowner’s request. By expanding to Coquitlam, Jose Simas, who coowns the business with Zeb Pereira, hopes to meet a growing demand for places to get rid of hard-to-recycle items. Styrofoam is a big problem, he said, because it’s commonly used in packing yet recycling programs won’t collect it because it is bulky and messy. “You can imagine if it was at the curbside, how easy it would be to fill a truck and now easy it would be to blow around in the wind,” he said. He encourages homeowners to remove

Simas said it’s a good arrangement because the supporting agency provides volunteers to help recycling day run smoothly.

It’s a sad fact of life that those electronic items that look so cool when you get them will eventually break down and probably be tossed away.

Trucks wreak havoc on Burke By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Coquitlam neighbourhood where construction is booming is being wrecked by large trucks tearing up the curbs. Coquitlam homebuilder Wa l t e r Passaglia said some Burke Mountain developers are â&#x20AC;&#x153;running roughshodâ&#x20AC;? with their delivery trucks of concrete, lumber and other supplies. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking issue with the city charging him for the damage theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve caused. Under the current bylaw, the cost to repair curbs at intersections is split between all the builders in a certain construction zone; for example, if a truck hits and breaks a curb, the city takes a portion from the damage deposits from all the builders working in that area to pay for the repairs. Bill Susak, Coquitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general manager of engineering and public works, said five curbs were struck last year by large trucks making awkward turns in the area of Millard Avenue and Marguerite Street. The damage happened along Marguerite Street at the corners of Millard Avenue, Canary Place and Passaglia Place. As a result, the $6,175 in repairs is being spread out between the 47 new homes along the street, translating into a $130 levy per house. Passaglia said the practice of billing for common damage isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If someone drives over [my] lot and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not there, well, guess what? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m liable. I accept that,â&#x20AC;?

CRAIG HODGE/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Walter Passaglia of Passaglia Developments Ltd. takes a look at the damage he says was caused by large trucks at Marguerite Street and Passaglia Place on Burke Mountain. he told the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineering committee last month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But to go to the next lot and so on [for charging]? I could say the same to the city: If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a picture of me driving into that curb and demolishing that curb, then why am I liable?â&#x20AC;? Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said

while damage costs need to be recovered, he agreed the bylaw needs to be tweaked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re accepting responsibility for the 45foot frontage,â&#x20AC;? he told Passaglia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not accepting responsibility down the road and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect you to.â&#x20AC;? Coun. Brent Asmundson, chair of

the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineering committee, also said the language in the building bylaw needs to be better worded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand the intent by staff to try to recoup money for common damage,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The bylaw] doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t specifically or clearly state that when a person takes out a building permit that they are responsible for all the common damage in an area thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in that construction site and, I think, if the bylaw were to read that clearly to the person, I would agree with that.â&#x20AC;? Asmundson suggested city staff attach an extra levy on building permits to create a fund to deal with unattributed or unproved damage in construction zones. Staff are now reviewing options. M e a n w h i l e , Coquitlam city council will consider a number of bids this month for large home developments on Burke Mountain, where the city plans to add 24,000 residents: â&#x20AC;˘ Wesbild Holdings plans to build 78 singlefamily residential lots at 3450 to 3469 Galloway Ave. on land owned by it and the city in the Smiling Creek neighbourhood. The company

is asking to change the official community plan (OCP) and rezone 13.7 acres. â&#x20AC;˘ Morningstar Homes wants to put in about 67 single-family residential lots on land it owns at 1404 and 1408 Coast Meridian Rd. in the Upper Hyde Creek neighbourhood. It is requesting an OCP and rezoning change for 8.5 acres, south of Highland Drive and the volunteer fire station. â&#x20AC;˘ And Morningstar Homes plans to add about 34 single-family residential lots (21 of which will allow for carriage houses) on land it owns at 3434, 3438 and 3444 Roxton Ave. The OCP and rezoning change is for 3.6 acres in the Smiling Creek neighbourhood. City council gave first reading last month, with Coun. Brent Asmundson excused for the latter bid as he lives nearby. A public hearing on the applications is scheduled for Jan. 24 at Coquitlam city hall. jwarren@tricitynews.com

ver wonder what your neighbours in the Tri-Cities are reading? With the generous help of Tri-City librarians, The News has rounded up the most requested titles from the Coquitlam, PoCo and Port Moody libraries and pared them down to the top 10 titles of 2010 as read by you. Surprisingly, in a time when many North American literati have proclaimed the novel dead, Tri-City readers’ tastes seem to prove that pronouncement premature at best, as all 10 of your top reads of yesteryear were novels. And many of them were just the latest book in a lengthy and sequential series. 1. The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson. Originally published in his native Swedish, the late Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy took English-speaking world by storm in 2009 when the first two installments, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Girl Who Played With Fire, were published. The final word in his crime-thriller series — though rumours swirl online about an unfinished manuscript for a fourth novel — Larsson’s Hornet’s Nest, according to amazon.ca, “roars with an explosive storyline that blows the doors off the series and announces that the very best has been saved for last.” 2. The Help by Kathryn Stockett American author Kathryn Stockett’s first time out of the gate netted her a 2009 summer sleeper hit in The Help. Told in the voices of three women in pre-Civil rights-era Mississippi, Stockett “creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women — mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends — view one another.” Amazon.ca went on to call The Help “a deeply moving novel filled with poi-

Planning a wedding? Books can help — see Good Read column on next page. gnancy, humour and hope ...a timeless and universal story about the lines we abide by, and the ones we don’t.” 3. The Sentimentalists by Johanna Skibsrud Another debut novel, this time from a Canadian, Skibsrud’s tale of a young woman wrestling with a dark family history earned her and her small Nova Scotia publishing house, Gaspereau Press, the prestigious Scotiabank Giller Prize in 2010. 4. Port Mortuary by Patricia Cornwell. The 18th installment in Cornwell’s Scarpetta series. 5. Room by Emma Donoghue. Man Booker Prize finalist from the London, Ontario author. 6. Cross Fire by James Patterson. The 17th book of Patterson’s Alex Cross series of crime paperbacks. 7. Committed by Elizabeth Gilbert. The latest from the Eat, Pray, Love author. 8. Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb. The 38th book of the towering In Death series. 9. Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella. The sixth novel of the Shopaholic series. 10. Fall of Giants by Ken Follett. The first of Follett’s promised Century trilogy. Young readers: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Ugly Truth by Jeff Kinney. The fifth illustrated book of the wildly popular Wimpy Kid series. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. The fifth and final book of the Hunger Games series — what one Tri-City librarian called “the new Harry Potter.”

Hopes for dream wedding after tough year By Diane Strandberg

IN QUOTES

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

“I’d be happy for them to win a fantasy dream come true.”

A

licia Zanders won’t let a little problem like kidney disease get in the way of her marriage to Ryan Richardson — and neither will her mother-in-law-to-be. Thanks to Jackie Richardson, Zanders is up and about and dreaming about her wedding. But eight months ago, things weren’t looking so rosy. Zanders, 26, a Pinetree secondary school graduate, was looking forward to a modest ceremony at Whonnock Lake in Maple Ridge after her fiancé Ryan Richardson, 27, of Port Coquitlam proposed on New Year’s Eve 2009. She even bought the dress, a lovely creation she spied in a second-hand store in New Westminster. But last April, she had to put her plans on hold after she was diagnosed with kidney disease. The news that she needed a transplant came as a shock. “It was scary,” Zanders said of the weeks of tests and convalescence at Royal Columbian Hospital. She was afraid to go on dialysis, overwhelmed with the worry of finding a match and had to stop working. Her family and friends rallied but only Jackie Richardson was a good match. Fortunately, Ryan’s mom (and Zanders’ soonto-be mother-in-law) was agreeable to the idea. In fact, Jackie Richardson had considered being an organ donor since working with renal patients for a medical company. “It was something I was always prepared to do for my kids,” she said.

Jackie Richardson

CRAIG HODGE/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Mom Jackie Richardson offers support to her son, Ryan, and Alicia Zanders. Richardson donated a kidney to Zanders in September and now hopes the couple will win a dream wedding. When she found out her future daughterin-law needed a kidney, Richardson agreed to go under the surgeon’s knife.

“I did it out of love,” she says. The two women had surgery together Sept. 20 at St. Paul’s Hospital and are now

recovered and looking forward to a healthy and happy 2011. But one question remains: What about the wedding? Money has been scarce since the bride had to go on leave from her job as a mortgage broker, and the reservations at Whonnock Lake were cancelled. Zanders, who credited a positive attitude, and healthy eating for her quick recovery, said she’s not giving up her dream of a waterfront wedding. “I thought everybody had a journey in life, and this was mine. And there are two ways to do it: You can cry about it or you can just accept it and move on and do everything you can to be positive about it.” She entered Global TV’s Win a Dream Wedding Contest in December and is hoping she’ll win so her mother-in-law can be part of the experience at the Grand Sirenis Mayan Beach in the Riviera Maya. “It would be fabulous to go with our families and get married on a beach,” said Zanders. As for Richardson, she just wants to see the couple wed. “I’d be happy for them to have a fantasy dream come true.” • To vote for Alicia Zanders and Ryan Richardson’s dream wedding, visit www. globaltvbc.com/contests/weddingsaway/ index.html.

Planning your wedding A GOOD READ Anna Chabada

M

arriage is one of the most important events in our lives; it shapes our future and bonds us to the one we love. The road to the altar can, however, be stressful. Many tasks must be accomplished and planning for a wedding is, at times, daunting and overwhelming. To make this process a little simpler, I have gathered a collection of books that may help along the way. There is no shortage of wedding books that involve planning the big day. As I sifted through many of them, two stood out: Donnie Brown Weddings: From the Couture to the Cakee and Wedding Chic by Colin Cowie. Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book has an excellent planning timeline. It has a four-page practical guide, complete with check boxes so you can mark things off as you do them. Cowieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book is well laid out, with each chapter focusing on an area of planning; for example: food and drink, decor and the guest list. He also includes detailed descriptions and photographs to highlight his ideas. Weddings by Tara Guerard is a beautiful book that describes the weddings of 12 couples. The best features of this book are the recipes for some of the dishes that were served. My favourite is the banana split cheesecake cups, piled together to look like a tiered wedding cake. Trying to stay within budget is probably every coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top priority. Stylish Weddings for Less by Catherine Sabino is a recent publication full of helpful tips and advice. For example, Sabino suggests foregoing RSVP cards when making up invitations as a cost-cutting measure. She also includes a budget breakdown of five couples who spent between $5,000 and $25,000. For the crafty couple on a budget, The DIY Bride by Khris Cochran is a good book to check out. It gives instructions for many unique projects, such as creating your own vintage tiara and building a ceremony canopy. Weddings are deeply rooted in tradition and etiquette. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever wondered where the adage â&#x20AC;&#x153;something old, something new, something bor-

â&#x201E;˘

rowed, something blueâ&#x20AC;? originated, The Brides Book of Traditions, Trivia and Curiosities tells all. Authors Rachel Conard and Lisa Wojna have done their homework and researched every tradition you could imagine. This book makes for a great conversation starter. Emily Post is a longtime wedding guru and her book Wedding Etiquette covers, among many other things, responsibilities for the bride and groomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s families, how to pare down a bulging guest list and appropriate wedding attire. If wedding stories are your niche, there are many to choose from. My personal favourite is Shopaholic Ties the Knot by Sophie Kinsella. This is a fun, quick read about an over-zealous young woman who gets caught up the in the frenzy of wedding planning. Before she knows it, she has planned two weddings and has gone way over budget; luckily, it all seems to work out in the end. A meatier novel is A Wedding in Decemberr by Anita Shreve, who recounts the reunion of seven former classmates who have gathered together for their friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wedding. The stories of their lives are woven into the book as the author describes the challenges they have faced since their school days together. Wedding planning can be an exciting time in a coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life as they share ideas and prepare to spend the rest of their lives together. If one keeps in mind the goal of the process, this can prevent getting caught up in the details. Good luck and congratulations! A Good Read is a column by Tri-City librarians that is published every Wednesday. Anna Chabada works at Port Coquitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Terry Fox Library.

More than picnics CONTINUING ADVENTURES Naomi Yorke HONG KONG unday is a day of gathering. It is the day of the Lord, which also means that it is the days that the shops close early back home. But here in Hong Kong, there is no time to waste in this consumer society. Shops remain open late into the night on Sundays and everything hums and vibrates with the constant rush of people, cars and metro trains. It is a mixed bag here, with some people observing the Sabbath (church bells ring in the distance) while others go about for their business as usual. Sunday is something quite different and special in mid Hong Kong island at a place called Central. This is the day where women who hail from the Philippines, mostly domestic workers, come out from all around the city in droves to sit and have lunch together and enjoy one another’s company. I first became aware of the Sunday phenomenon years ago when I came to Hong Kong as a tourist with my mother. We happened upon this display unintentionally but became increasingly perplexed as we maneuvered through blankets of women sharing homemade treats in plastic containers and braiding one another’s hair. Music blared from some blankets and groups of women performed line-dancing routines while others were engaged in karaoke or engrossed in prayer circles. These are not your typical Sunday picnics. This display of humanity happens weekly on a concrete overpass bridging two mammoth highrises, which are shadowed by more highs all around. Blankets spill onto staircases and elevated fountains are commonplace. There is something very peaceful about this day, this time, this place. My immediate reaction to such a large gath-

S

ering of females was awe and pride — solidarity sisters! I understand what it is like to be a minority and to long for your homeland and people who will understand your language and relate to your stories. There is something so comforting about familiarity when you are far from your home and native land. I think every ex-pat or everyone who has been an ex-pat can relate to these women and their plight. And recently, here in Hong Kong, I discovered yet another Sunday phenomenon. While the workers from the Philippines draw together in one part of town, throngs of women from Indonesia gather in Causeway Bay, where our apartment is. The mood is quite different and the fashion is distinct, with many of the woman in hijabs, from flashy and bling-studded to modest and subdued. There are a lot of young, modern women from Indonesia here adorned in anything but traditional dress, coupled off and sporting tattoos, piercings and funky hairstyles. Their lifestyles seem alternative from a surface glance. As I walk down the street into the crowd, confronting so many different and beautiful faces, I wonder about all the individual stories and the roads that have brought people here, so very far from their homes. Not far from the apartment, I find myself on a street covered in Indonesian signs. Music in yet another tongue blasts from storefronts and the smell of coconut fills the air. Sunday here is about worlds within worlds, and within the calmer and congestion of the place, people reach out to one another on blankets and in storefronts. They sing familiar songs and share familiar stories in native languages. For many people here, Sunday is about going home without ever leaving Hong Kong. Naomi Yorke is a Port Coquitlam student who lived in Shanghai, China for four years, writing about her experiences twice a month for The Tri-City News. She now lives in Chicago, where she’s attending art school, and continues her column.

Quick draw success PoMo teenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drawing app proving a hit on iTunes By Todd Coyne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Paige Rohrick had a hectic first week back at school. Ever since the Port Moody teenagerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s digital drawing tutorial app shot to No. 1 on iTunes, the Heritage Woods secondary school student has seen her downloadable creation, PaigeeDraw, splashed across her TV screen and in local and national papers. Heady stuff for a 16-year-old. She even hired a publicist. But ask the Grade 11 student how sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handling all the hype around her 200-downloads-a-day app for the iPhone and iPad and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fine.â&#x20AC;? And how did she feel watching herself being interviewed on the TV news Friday morning? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was fine.â&#x20AC;? She may be a young woman of seemingly few words but that brevity may just be the quality that inspired PaigeeDraw in the first place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I got the idea for the app because a lot of people had asked me how I drew,

and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a question that I cannot answer because drawing is something you have to show. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too awkward to try to tell people how to do it,â&#x20AC;? she told The Tri-City News. So Rohrick began drawing her favourite Japanese-style manga comic creations, and enlisted the help of her parents to scan the step-by-step illustrations into a computer and then compile them into the instructional PaigeeDraw application. Rohrick then submitted the app to the online iTunes store in three partsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; PaigeeDraw Free, PaigeeDraw Pro ($1.99) and PaigeeDraw Christmas ($0.99) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and within days, the popularity of the mini program soared to more than a thousand downloads a week. As for what the future holds for Rohrick, she said that while app-designing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t her lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambition, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a comfortable fall-back plan for now â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at least until she finishes high school. Rather, Rohrick plans to work in art or fashion after studying either one at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver. Until then, PaigeeDraw 2.0 is already in the design stages. tcoyne@tricitynews.com

Sign up now for annual Tri-Cities spelling bee Spelling enthusiasts who are in Grades 4 or 5 are invited to showcase their skills by competing in the Tri-Cities libraries’ fifth annual spelling bee in the new year. The libraries are accepting registrations for four spelling bees to be held Jan. 29, 2011 at Port Moody Public Library, Coquitlam Public

Library (Poirier and City Centre branches) and Terry Fox Library in Port Coquitlam. The top five spellers from each bee will advance to the final round, to be held Feb. 5 at Port Coquitlam’s Wilson Centre, where they will compete for spelling supremacy in the region. Medals will be handed out to

the top three finishers. Early registration is recommended as space is limited to a maximum of 20 competitors per bee. You can register in person at your city’s library. The goal of the spelling bee is to engage young people in positive competition while

having fun. For more information, contact any of the participating libraries: • Coquitlam City Centre branch, 604-9273560); • Coquitlam Poirier branch, 604-937-4144; • Terry Fox Library, 604-927-7999; • or Port Moody, 604-469-4577.

For the kids Vickie Ayers has been fundraising for Variety — T h e C h i l d r e n ’s Charity for 32 years and she needs local residents’ help to beat her total for last year before Variety’s annual February telethon. She’s $5,000 short of her $25,000 goal — after holding barbecues and bocce tournaments, and hosting a Halloween Haunted house — and will staff a booth at the Save-On Foods at Coquitlam’s Pinetree Village to make up the different. She will be there Tuesday through Sunday, 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. collecting money for Variety. She’s also holding a bottle drive. call 604-939-7419 for more information.

We’re celebrating 16 years of growing up with the Tri-Cities. For closing in on 2 decades, Wah Wing has been the standard set for Asian Cuisine in our area. It has been consistently voted one of the most popular eateries of any type, year after year. Now serving its 2nd generation of Tri-City residents, it’s pretty obvious they are here to stay. As they reflect over the last 16 years, they fondly remember serving the first generation of families, whose children were in booster chairs, and are now bringing their own dates, spouses and in some cases their own children back for Wah Wing’s fabulous cuisine. It’s this outstanding food that keeps loyal followers coming back, but the new decor makes each visit seem even more special. The freshly renovated room has been totally revamped from the new carpeting right

The gracious staff still treat each visitor to the restaurant like royalty. A table for 1, 2, 10 or more; each is equally important and will receive the utmost in service. Believe me, none will go hungry. They specialize in large parties. Just let them know when and how many and they’ll take care of the rest! From appetizers and soup, to main course dishes and dessert, everything is perfectly presented and your guests will be delighted. What a great idea for any kind of get together or celebration. Reserve early for Christmas parties and any other special events. Still, it is the food that makes a restaurant and Wah Wing has received great reviews from all lovers of scrumptious Chinese cuisine Lunches are also great at Wah Wing. The Dim Sum is fabulous and available daily at a very reasonable price.

SIGN ME UP 2011! Signing up for weight loss? Step back It is the time of year when many people are trying to keep their new yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the year,â&#x20AC;? they say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;when I am finally going to .... quit smoking, stop drinking, lose weight, get fit, work less, spend more time with my family, fill in the blank...â&#x20AC;? Unfortunately, many people will quit making the effort and go back to the same old, same old before the month is over. There are lots of articles on how to keep your new yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions and just as many articles written about why most people fail to keep them. But Sheryl Stanton, a registered nurse and stress relief specialist, says that she has never read an article that gives what she thinks is the real reason for the failures. She believes the real reason we go back to what we were doing before is because there is an emotional payoff for doing it; i.e., we get something from it, otherwise we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be doing it. Stanton doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drink or smoke, so she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t identify with that but she does know about her new yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions to lose weight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was an emotional eater,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whenever I got stressed or upset, I would go to the fridge

or the store. And it was never celery or carrot sticks that I wanted; it was rich, creamy carbs that I craved, especially chocolate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I would eat chocolate, I would calm down and feel better. Chocolate was rich and delicious and comforted me. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat it all the time but when I got stressed, I would binge. I would eat three of the large chocolate bars at one time or a whole bag of chocolate chips. One time, I ate a one-pound solid-chocolate [Easter] bunny â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and had the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst migraine headache.â&#x20AC;? Stanton says that even though she was packing on the pounds and hating how she looked, she still continued to eat. Why? Because it made her feel better â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the emotional payoff. According to Stanton, she was in her 50s before she learned about the negative belief systems sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had all of her life. She learned that they were what caused her to feel unhappy, unsatisfied and unfulfilled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As I was able to eliminate these destructive belief systems, I noticed an interesting side effect. I lost almost 50 pounds within seven months. And it was easy. Because I felt good about myself, I no longer needed the emotional

VALLEY WOMENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S NETWORK

comfort that I got from eating chocolate.â&#x20AC;? Stanton (www.sherylstanton.com) believes this emotional payoff is why so many diets fail. A person may have the willpower and discipline to get the weight off. But unless they have eliminated the underlying reason that caused them to put the weight on in the first place, they will just gain it back again. That is why we see so many yo-yo dieters who lose the weight and then gain it back again, multiple times. And what usually happens when people stop smoking? They gain weight because they still have the underlying emotional problem they were using cigarettes to pacify, only they are using a different pacifier: food. According to Stanton, people fail to solve their problems because they are starting at the wrong end. Instead of trying to eliminate the comfort food or other

substance, they should work on eliminating the emotional problem that is causing them to comfort themselves. If you are serious about keeping your new yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolution this

year, you might want to consider eliminating the cause first. When the cause is gone, the symptom (smoking, drinking, overeating, workaholism, whatever) will also disappear.

Vancouver artist Robi Smith — pictured here with Herring (2010) — will show 30 works from her series, called The Voice of the Sea: Paintings of a Threatened Ocean, in a new exhibit that starts tomorrow at Place des Arts. Smith will be at the opening reception Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. as will artists Suzy Stroet and husband and wife team Rick Glumac and Nathania Vishnevshy, who are also displaying their pieces this month at the Coquitlam facility. It is Smith’s first major solo exhibition.

Fish, libraries and Venice By Janis Warren

context and to romanticize them,” she said. “Oil is something that can be preserved and last forever,” unlike bookstacks. Had she interpreted the automated retrieval system instead, she would have used a digital format, she said. The second part of Library focuses on referencing, a topic she is familiar with at the library. Her drawings show the creative process of retrieval, like peeling back “the layers it takes for the information to come out,” she said.

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A

bout eight years ago, Robi Smith found a copy of a 1940s book written by the department of Fisheries and Oceans about B.C. fish. The black-and-white etchings and the stories behind the fish fascinated her. “There are so many varieties of fish in our waters that I never knew about,” the Vancouver artist said. “We talk about salmon and cod and rockfish all the time, but never about these fish. I felt like I was discovering a whole new world and I wanted to learn more.” Smith’s connection with the ocean over the years has been profound. As a child, she played on the beach in Vancouver and, as an adult, she has studied and written papers on environmental health topics for government clients. But the DFO reference book sparked her passion to translate what she saw and read on to canvas. Her series, called The Voice of the Sea: Paintings of a Threatened Ocean, will be part of a month-long show opening tomorrow (Thursday) at Place des Arts in Coquitlam. It is her first major solo exhibit. A self-taught artist, Smith will display 30 acrylic works, which she describes as “realistic abstract symbolism.” Realistic, as the fish are true interpretations; abstract, as the backgrounds are a rich wash of blues and greens, like the sea, and oranges and reds, to represent acidity; and symbolism, as the images surrounding the fish contrast with their pristine surroundings. For example, the outlines of the plastic bottles are the ocean’s garbage and the falling dinosaurs are the carbon from the fossil fuels; the outlines of fish mean their stock has collapsed or is near extinct. With her artwork, Smith’s intent is to raise the level of awareness about the impact of overfishing, pollution and climate change. But they’re also supposed to educate the au-

Of herring, she writes: “Once abundant on the B.C. coast, herring feed almost the entire range of marine animals. The eggs are eaten by fish and seabirds, the larvae by jellyfish and crustaceans, the larger fish by sharks, other fish, seabirds, seals and sea lions. But who will eat the plastic bottles?” Said Smith: “There’s so much under the water that we don’t know about and I want to bring that to people’s attention. The oceans are in trouble and I feel that we could lose so much without even knowing it.”

UBC BOOKSTACKS Suzy Stroet instinctively knows who went to UBC when she shows them her paintings

of the Main Library. “There are usually very strong connotations,” she said. “There are some UBC grads who say, ‘Oh, I spent too much time there!’ but there are others who remember the bookstacks fondly.” The Vancouver artist, whose series called Library is being exhibited in the Leonore Peyton Salon this month, would place herself in the latter half. In 2005, as the bookstacks were being replaced by an automated retrieval system, Stroet snapped photos of them to re-create on canvas in between her full-time job as a children’s librarian at the Collingwood branch of the Vancouver Public Library (she has a master’s degree in library science from UBC). She painted the images in oil “to give them

It was a week-long trip to the Queen of the Adriatic in 2009 that inspired Rick Glumac and Nathania Vishnevshy to photograph and paint a series called Remembering Venice. The joint exhibition by the husband and wife team, to be shown in the Mezzanine Gallery, yields familiar sights from the Italian city such as the bridges, gondolas and masks. But the Port Moody couple also doesn’t shy away from capturing the squalor of the tourist destination: garbage from the sea washing on to the streets next to cathedrals and pigeon poop on statues. “During this trip we rented our own apartment, bought our food from the local markets and tried to live as the Venetians do,” Vishnevshy said. “We even evacuated to higher ground in the middle of the night due to the all-too-common flooding that the Venetians seem to take in stride.” Vishnevshy, a watercolour and acrylic artist who has two master’s degrees from Ohio State University, has taken part in a number of Tri-City art shows while Glumac, a computer graphics expert, was on last year’s organizing committee for the Wearable Art exhibition. • The three Place des Arts exhibits run from Jan. 13 to Feb. 5 at 1120 Brunette Ave. The opening reception will be held Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m., with the artists in attendance. jwarren@tricitynews.com

British farce for Stage 43 By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Tri-City theatre group tackles the everlasting themes of love and laughter this week and next as part of its season-long British comedy series. Stage 43 Theatre Society has eight performances of Charley’s Aunt, a farce written more than 100 years ago that opens tomorrow (Thursday) at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam. The cast of 10, mostly from the Tri-Cities, interprets the comedy “pretty much how it was written,” director Jim Harrison told The Tri-City News. “We’ve modernized the design for the set a bit and the lighting, but we’ve kept the bones of the structure as they were in the 19th century.” Opened in 1892 in London, England, Charley’s Aunt broke box office records by running for 1,466 shows; the next year on Broadway, it ran for four

years. The somewhat-complex plot revolves around Charley Wykeham and Jack Chesney, two Oxford University undergraduates trying to woo their sweethearts, Amy Spettigue and Kitty Verdun. When Charley hears his rich Brazilian aunt, Donna Lucia D’Alvadorez, will be in England, he and Jack organize a lunch with their girlfriends to meet her; however, the aunt doesn’t show and they get their friend, Lord Fancourt Babberly, to impersonate her. But in Act Two, the relative appears with her adopted niece, Ela Delahay, an orphan with whom Babberly is smitten — mostly because she inherited money from her father that was originally Babberly’s. The comedy follows Stage 43’s fall performance of The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde, and precedes Noel Coward’s Hay Fever.

We were not spectacular by any stretch of the imagination,” Terry Fox head coach Rich Chambers told The TriCity News. “We lost to two very good teams but we did not play our best basketball — we just weren’t sharp.” Chambers cited the Ravens’ back-court game and offensive rebounding as areas needing the most improvement if the boys are to challenge league titans such as Palmer and Kelowna as the season progresses. Coquitlam’s Gleneagle Talons also had a disappointing showing at the Legal Beagle invitational, losing two of three games by more than 27 points but besting White Rock Christian 59-41 in their first game of the tournament. The Talons fell to Terry Fox 79-43 and to perennial powerhouse Vancouver College Fighting Irish 85-58. The Ravens opened with the Gleneagle win, followed by a loss to the eventual tourney champions from R.C. Palmer, then another in the bronze-medal game to Burnaby South. The Legal Beagle tournament is always a big draw and this year featured half a dozen of the province’s top-ranked teams. tcoyne@tricitynews.com

33 headed to youth games Hockey players, skaters and curlers going to Kelowna for international event Jan. 26-31 By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A delegation of 33 young athletes and coaches will represent the city of Coquitlam this month at the first Inter national Children’s Winter Games to be held in North America. The fifth annual event, which runs Jan. 26 to 31 in Kelowna, will see the Coquitlam Minor Hockey Bantam A2 boys’ team as well as two Coquitlam Skating Club skaters and two teams from the Coquitlam Curling

Association compete alongside hundreds of youths from around the world. In total, 36 city delegations from 14 countries will be at the games, including Australia, Austria, Greece, Germany, Iceland, Slovenia, South Korea, the United States and Scotland, with the aim of promoting sport and the Olympic spirit, fair play, equality, fun and friendship between kids ages 12 to 15 years. Neil Pukesh, operations manager of Coquitlam’s Poirier Sport and Leisure Complex, said the event came to his attention last October via the curling association. The city then extended the invitation to other minor sports groups to see if anyone would be willing to compete in one of the seven sports offered at the games. After discussion with the Sports Centre

User Association, the city decided there was enough interest to form a delegation of seven coaches and 26 athletes, and paid the $335 registration fee. Coaches and athletes will be billeted and will be responsible for their own travel expenses, Pukesh said. On Monday, Coun. Doug Macdonell, chair of the city’s recreation committee, urged city councillors to send a representative to Kelowna as Coquitlam’s flag will be flown during the opening ceremonies; a decision will be made by Monday’s council meeting. Mayor Richard Stewar t suggested Coquitlam needs to look at sports tournament hosting more closely — not only for its economic spin-offs but also for the attention it brings to the city. The first International Children’s Games were held in June 1968 in Celje, Slovenia.

Help the Chiefs The Coquitlam Chiefs will represent the city at the 2011 International Children’s Winter Games later this month in Kelowna. And to raise funds to send then to the Okanagan, the Coquitlam Express have taken the young team under their wing, allowing the minor hockey team to sell tickets to the Jan. 19 Express game against the Nanaimo Clippers for just $10 and keep half the proceeds from every ticket sold to support the Chiefs’ efforts. Anyone who purchases tickets to the Express-Clippers game will have their ticket stub entered into a draw for a team jersey signed by the Express. For tickets, contact Carl Severson at 604-941-6878.

Terry Fox secondary school will hold a celebration of life event for longtime teacher and football coach Carey Lapa, who died suddenly on Sunday. Lapa, who was pastpresident of Football BC and well-loved coach of the Junior Ravens, taught physical education at the CAREY LAPA school since 1998. Members of the school community were informed by email of his passing and an announcement was made at the school Monday, according to School District 43 spokesperson Cheryl Quinton. Fox principal Heather Murphy said the school received an outpouring of support from former staff and the football community, including Football BC, which sent food, and rivals W.J. Mouat secondary in Abbotsford, which sent flowers and condolences. “It’s been incredible,” said Murphy, who said the school was calm Monday and the atmosphere reflective as staff and students comforted one another about Lapa’s sudden passing with the help of a district team of former counsellors and administrators. “Our kids and staff were very upset.” Lapa was well connected with the school and sports community and a very popular teacher. “He’ll be very, very missed,” she said. Lapa had a long history of involvement in football and was a member of the UBC Thunderbirds team that won the 1982 Vanier Cup national championship. A football award or bursary will be created in his name, she said, and students will be selling wristbands to raise money for it or another worthy cause. A celebration of Lapa’s life will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 5 in the school gym.

The Port Moody Reds weathered the cold and a frozen home field to defeat the Guildford Azores 5-2 Sunday in under-18 boys’ Gold soccer play. Shahin Rasulniya put the Reds on the board first, a 1-0 lead the team carried into the second half of play. The Reds built on this lead in the second with Leigh Kinakin, Jared Peterson, Avery Daniels and Reshad Ziauddin each netting a goal against the Azore defence. Ziauddin also earned three assists while teammate Daniels assisted on two Port Moody goals. Reds team manager Tony Brown cited outstanding defensive play from Matthew Wahlroth, Matthew Brown, Blake Bjorndal, Ben Vovko, Andrew Pilcher and goaltender Eugene Borysenko as crucial contributions to the team’s success on Sunday.

IRVING, Charles Francis Elwood

Charles (Chuck) Irving passed away on Thursday, December 23, 2010 at Abbotsford Regional Hospital at the age of 81 years. Chuck was born in Broderick, Saskatchewan where he learned at a young age that the railway would be his life’s calling. In 1966 Chuck moved with his wife Chris and their seven children: Guy, Debbie, Brian, Rick, Sharon, Ken and Sandy to Port Coquitlam, BC where he worked as an engineer until his retirement in 1990. In his spare time Chuck enjoyed bike riding, dancing, cross-country skiing and working up a sweat in his vegetable garden, where in his later years, he decided it would be “OK” to also plant a few flowers. After a life full of loves, laughs and a few sorrows Chuck’s final wishes were basic: cremation with a simply worded obituary, akin to “Chuck Died”. But his immediate family, including in-laws, 8 grandchildren and a few close friends will gather to share some more lively stories at a Celebration of his Life to be held in the spring.
