Food for thought: Two groups aim to help the hungry

Minister under lobbying pressure By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

B . C . E nv i r o n m e n t Minister Terry Lake is being urged to decide quickly whether Metro Vancouver can build more garbage incinerators in the region or if Lower Mainland trash must instead be sent further afield. Metro directors approved the proposed Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan last summer and sent it to Victoria, where it has bounced between three different environment ministers as a result of a series of cabinet shuffles. A spokesperson for Lake said ministry staff are still analysing the plan and expect to report to him by early June. Metro waste committee chair Greg Moore said he has been assured Lake hopes to decide soon after that. “Obviously, we want to get the plan done as soon as possible so we can move forward with it,” said the Port Coquitlam mayor, who met with Lake earlier this month. Metro needs time to call for bids and then build new waste-to-energy facilities — if allowed — by a 2015 target date. “When you start to work the clock backwards, we really need a decision in the very short term so we can move forward with the procurement and the construction process,” Moore said. The plan commits the region to recycle 70% of the waste stream by 2015, up from 55% now, by diverting organics and other recyclable materials. see METRO METRO,, page 17

Fix funding: Hyndes Uncertainty, insurance costs latest culprits By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The chair of the Tri-Cities’ board of education wants a new funding mechanism for B.C. schools after the district was hit both with new costs and more cash after passing its $260-million 2011/’12 budget Tuesday evening. “It’s broken and its inequitable,” Melissa Hyndes said of the way schools are funded in the province. Previous School District 43 complaints have been about the district’s low per-pupil funding compared to other districts. Now, downloading has been added to the list of concerns after the district was told its premiums would rise for a School Protection Fund and its deductible would jump to $10,000 for each incident (typically theft), up from $3,000.

The change would add another $200,000 in insurance costs, including the increased deductibles. Hyndes, a Port Moody trustee, said the lack of consultation and late addition to the budget is another indication the funding process needs to be re-worked. “It’s downloading, that’s what it is,” said Hyndes, noting that the announcement came after boards had already set their budgets for the year. MELISSA HYNDES The BC School Trustees Association is also asking Education Minister George Abbott to reconsider the ministry’s sudden decision to shift school building insurance premiums previously paid by the government to local boards of education. see LAST-MINUTE LAST MINUTE FUNDING, FUNDING, page 4

Train noise complaints By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A resident of downtown Port Coquitlam said he and his neighbours are losing sleep due to the sound of train whistles at the nearby Kingsway Avenue rail crossing. Brad Stairs told The TriCity News that PoCo city council needs to implement a bylaw similar to one that is in place in Coquitlam, which limits the use of train whistles between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. “I think it is something that will benefit a lot of people,” Stairs said. “In the last five years, this area has really grown up.” Stairs lives in a four-storey apartment building near

Gates Park and faces the Coquitlam River. He said he understands safety is a concern and horns are sounded in order to alert vehicles crossing the tracks but that is a controlled crossing with flashing lights, ringing bells and barriers that block the road when trains approach, so drivers are given plenty of warning without trains sounding their whistles. “Even with well-marked crossings, there is always some clown that wants to go around it,” he said. “You are never going to stop those people.” But when it comes to train whistles, there may not be much the city of Port Coquitlam can do. Dan Scoones, the city’s manager of bylaw services,

said the city already has rules in place but federal rail carriers are exempt from complying with municipal bylaws. “They will take a resolution but they don’t have to pay attention,” he said. “That is my understanding.” Scoones added that the Kingsway rail crossing is unique because, unlike crossings in Coquitlam, three roads meet at the crossing on an angle, so train engineers may be forced to take extra precautions when approaching the intersection. Scoones said he would continue to investigate the issue and would likely be reporting back to PoCo’s community safety committee at an upcoming meeting. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

A Port Coquitlam resident wants the city to do something about train whistles at night but a city official says it can do little more than ask rail companies to refrain.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Food bank clients target of Rotary drive; hungry kids are fed at breakfast clubs

Rotary raising ‘Most important meal’ makes food for Share difference for these students By Diane Strandberg

By Gary McKenna

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Rotary Club members are asking Tri-City residents to open up their hearts, wallets and pantries to help the food bank during Rotary’s Generous Hearts food drive May 28 and 29. On those days, from noon to 5 p.m. at six local grocery stores, shoppers can pick up a paper grocery bag from one of 72 Rotary Club volunteers and fill it with staples such as canned meats, pasta and cereal. Food will go to fill the hampers at the three food banks run by Share Family and Community Services — and the timing couldn’t be better, says Share’s fund development manager, Heather Scott, because Christmas food supplies are running out and May 30 is National Hunger Awareness Day. “It’s wonderful to have the support of all four Rotary Clubs and to have their hearts and minds behind the issue of hunger in the community,” Scott said. “They reach out to so many shoppers, which helps to keep the issue of hunger in front of Tri-Cities residents.” Scott said the supplies are sorely needed because the food bank continues to feed about 950 households every two weeks at its Port Moody, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam depots. She’s hoping for good things as residents get behind the latest food drive. Last October, the four TriCity Rotary Clubs of the Tri-Cities — Port Moody, Coquitlam Sunrise, Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam Centennial — collected almost 11,000 kg of food. And the Generous Hearts campaign has already got off to a good start because the Canadian Western Bank contributed $7,500, through the efforts of Ron Baker, who is the bank’s assistant vice-president and bank manager as well as a Rotary club member. People can pick up the bags at: Thrifty Foods in Port Moody and Coquitlam; Save-On-Foods in Coquitlam and PoCo; and Safeway in Coquitlam and PoCo. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

The saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day is getting some new emphasis at several TriCity public schools. Breakfast clubs have been sprouting up across School District 43, offering up a free, healthy morning meal to children who may not be starting their day with nourishing food at home. Terry Fox secondary viceprincipal Ross Jacobsen said he has already seen some positive results since the program was launched at the Port Coquitlam school in February. The meals help students stay focused in the classroom and he said he can think of several students who have had dramatic turnarounds both behaviourally and academically. “It really gets them prepared for their day,” he told The Tri-City News. “If a kid’s got a breakfast in their tummy, they are in a much better position to learn.” The menu varies depending on the day. On Wednesdays, students are treated to fruit smoothies and on Fridays, the school serves a hot breakfast. The rest of the week, whole wheat bread, cereal, fruits and bagels are

“It really gets them prepared for their day. If a kid’s got a breakfast in their tummy, they are in a much better position to learn.” Ross Jacobsen, Terry Fox secondary school v-p GARY MCKENNA/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

available to club participants. At Maple Creek middle, where the breakfast club has existed for eight years, everything from English muffins with bacon and eggs, to waffles and cereal are gobbled up by kids every day. When the program was first introduced at Fox, Jacobsen said many teachers were concerned about the stigma it could create among the students who participate. In order to avoid any negative perceptions of the club, administrators made the food available to anyone. The school basketball team even began showing up and soon everyone from under-privileged teens to those who simply forgot to eat before leaving for school began sharing meals. “In the beginning, I don’t

S T R O N G E R

think we were getting the kids that we wanted,” he said “But now that they realize there isn’t a stigma involved, they are coming.” While the goal of the program is to help nourish students in need, Jacobsen has noticed some side benefits to the program. On average, about 85 students take advantage of the complimentary food and a sense of community has begun to build among the breakfast regulars, he said. Lisa Di Marco, a teacher at Heritage Woods secondary who has been helping launch the breakfast club program in the Tri-Cities, said the experience at Terry Fox is not uncommon. “It really helps create connections,” she said. “Teachers and students are

L E A N E R

hanging around and there is a sense of belonging. It says, ‘I belong to this school and the school is helping me.’” Funding for fridges and toasters necessary to run a club comes from Breakfast Clubs of Canada, a national non-profit organization. Schools apply for the start-up grant but are then expected to find ways of sustaining the program with fundraising efforts of their own. Terry Fox secondary and Maple Creek middle are the only schools in the district with breakfast club programs but Pitt River and Maillard middle and Mountain View elementary are in the application process and more schools are considering applying, Di Marco said. “Students need to be able to walk into a classroom and feel ready to learn,” she said. “Some students aren’t ready to learn because they have not had any food in the morning. If they have the opportunity to eat, they are ready to go.” • Those who wish to donate money to the Breakfast Clubs of Canada can drop cash into the donation boxes that are set out at Costco between Aug. 28 and Sept. 4.

Clay taking green act to school School District 43’s green man is moving to new digs but that doesn’t mean he’s giving up his environmental portfolio. Mark Clay is leaving his post as the BC Hydro-funded manager of energy and sustainability for the district to become principal of Maillard middle school but the enthusiastic proponent of tur ning down the heat and the lights and getting rid of paper still plans to be involved in green initiatives. “For me, I am an educator and a principal, and I miss the kids and the community,� Clay said, adding he will do what he can to support the new energy manager, Dave Sands, and expects to continue to participate on a new school design team. “For me, that’s exciting. We’ll keep that going,� said Clay, who helped the district analyze its energy use and figure out ways to reduce it, saving the district approximately $300,000 in energy costs. “I don’t intend for any of the initiatives to stop, that is the key. No one’s going to say: ‘Thank goodness Mark’s gone, now we can go back to where we were.’� He said a new print strategy to reduce paper use is going ahead and dozens of initiatives are taking place at local schools to reduce waste, cut energy use and reduce paper consumption. The district is also looking at dozens of projects to further reduce energy consumption through lighting upgrades and heating, ventilation and air conditioning improvements in the coming months.

Spring break will be two COUNCIL weeks next school year MEETINGS By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

It might be a year away but students, parents and teachers who like to plan ahead can look forward to a two week-spring break in 2012 — as well as an extra day on the Remembrance Day long weekend this fall. The School District 43 board of education approved the extra days off Tuesday even though teachers said more learning had to be crammed into a shorter time and principals said sports seasons had to be adjusted. School District 43 will add March 12 to 16, 2011 to the standard Ministry of Education spring break of March 19 to 23, in line with other Metro Vancouver districts. And Monday, Nov. 14 will be added this fall to make a fourday Remembrance Day long weekend. This would be the second year of extended holidays aimed at saving about $400,000 in salaries for substitute teachers that would otherwise be spent covering for teachers absent

because of illness. In its brief to the board of education, the Coquitlam Teachers’ Association expressed concerns about the impact of the decision on the schedules of teachers on call, whose hours will shrink because their services won’t be needed. As well, it was noted some course material was crammed because of the way the Easter long weekend fell in the calendar and the Coquitlam Principals’ and Vice-principals’ Association noted that sports schedules had to be adjusted and struggling students had less time to bring their marks up to a pass. The break has been scheduled to create a more balanced winter/ spring session next year. Trustees unanimously approved the longer break and scheduled dates.

Last-minute funding

WHEN Tuesday, May 24, 2011

continued from front page

But districts are also getting a last-minute funding boost after the province announced it was releasing $8.1 million in holdback funds, money it typically sets aside until student enrolments are confirmed. Wednesday’s holdback announcement means an extra $452,796 — $15 per student — for SD43, leaving it with a $253,000 surplus after the insurance costs are paid out. The extra cash is appreciated, Hyndes said, and will be set aside until the district can figure out which of its many obligations it should be used for. But it doesn’t take away from the need to reexamine the entire education funding mechanism, Hyndes said, nor does it change the fact the district faces new ongoing insurance costs. She also said trustees plan to send a letter expressing their concerns to Abbott, Premier Christy Clark and Tri-City MLAs. Trustees approved the letter at a board of education meeting Tuesday after complaining that the increased costs were being added the same day that $3 million in provincial cash was being spent to expand a classroom fruit and vegetable nutrition program. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

A question or two with civic ballot? Coquitlam may hold referendum in November By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Coquitlam voters may have more than a list of candidates to choose from during the November municipal race. City council is expected to decide over the next few weeks if a referendum question will be added to the ballot. On Wednesday, council met with city man-

agers to talk about a possible public opinion question and whether to strike a sub-committee but nothing concrete came out that meeting. City clerk Jay Gilbert said the wording for the potential question must be formed by the summer break to make sure it is on the electronic form. For last year’s byelection, when Coun. Neal Nicholson was returned to council and replaced Fin Donnelly — now MP for New WestminsterCoquitlam — the city gauged voter opinion

on: a ban for smoking on restaurant patios and extending off-leash hours in Mundy Park (both were approved). But the questions were added too late for the electronic ballot, meaning each response had to be hand-counted. Council also didn’t give itself enough time to decide if the questions should be binding or non-binding. “We want to make sure we’re not in the position we were last

time,” Mayor Richard Stewart said Thursday. In his report to council, Gilbert said the cost for the referendum “can most likely be absorbed in the existing funding provided by the city’s election reserve fund. Final costs are dependent on such factors as the number of questions added to the ballot, increased costs associated with ballot production, programming of voting machines and related

advertising/communications expenses.” City staff were unable to provide the budget for the 2011 election by press time Thursday.

SPRAY DISPLAY IN COQ. LAKE

In next issue...

A fountain started spraying this week in Coquitlam’s Lafarge Lake. Funding for the beautification project and decorative pathway lighting came partly from corporate sponsors — $50,000 from Wesbild and $5,000 from Polygon Homes — as well as casino revenues. Poor weather, electric designs and the availability of specialized contractors put the launch of the fountain on hold for several months, said Lori MacKay, the city’s general manager for parks. The fountain and pathway lighting will be on daily until 11 p.m.

T he lawyer for Cory Sater, the man charged with killing Charlene Reaveley and Lorraine Cruz in an alleged hitand-run crash in February, appeared in Port Coquitlam court Wednesday to set a date for trial. But the date to begin the proceedings against Sater likely won’t be decided until July 13. S a t e r ’s l aw ye r, Tony Serka, told the court that he was still awaiting witness disclosure statements and a police reconstruction of the Feb. 19 crash on Lougheed Highway at Pitt River Road. Sater, 37, is charged with 10 offences, including two counts of impaired driving causing death, one count of impaired driving casing bodily harm and leaving the scene of an accident, stemming from the crash that killed Reaveley, 30, and Cruz, 26, and s e ve r e l y i n j u r e d Cr uz’s boyfriend, Paolo Calimahin. Sater was released on bail in March on the conditions that he live with his father, observe a curfew, have no contact with any of the victims’ families and not drive or be in possession of alcohol. Once his lawyer is in possession of the disclosures and scene reconstruction, the hearing to set a date for trial could be held before the July 13 deadline.

A man accused of carrying out a string of violent robberies targeting women in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and across Metro Vancouver will remain in custody until a bail hearing next month. Joon Woo Lim appeared via video monitor in Port Coquitlam provincial court Wednesday morning. His lawyer, Mark Rowan, told the court that because of the complicated nature of the case, he would need two weeks to prepare for a bail hearing, which has been scheduled for June 1. In the meantime the 32-year-old Surrey resident will remain in custody. Lim is facing 11 charges, ranging from multiple counts of robbery to dangerous driving to disguising his face with intent to commit an offence, stemming from a 48-hour crime spree. Police say the attacks began at 5:40 a.m. on May 5, when a woman working in a Surrey coffee shop was at-

tacked and robbed by a man with a crowbar. Less than an hour later, another woman was attacked by a man with a knife in North Vancouver. At 8:30 a.m. the same day, another North Vancouver woman was walking alone when she was struck by a man with an unidentified weapon. Approximately an hour after that, an elderly Port Coquitlam woman was walking at the intersection of Patricia Avenue and Hastings Street when she was attacked and beaten over the head with a weapon, leaving her in hospital. The woman’s purse was taken in the struggle. And at 10 p.m. the same day, a woman with a young child in the back seat of her car was driving on Lansdowne Drive in Coquitlam when she was rear-ended by another vehicle. When the woman pulled over to check the damage, she was struck with a hammer by a man who attempted to steal the car. Nearby residents came to the women’s aid but the attacker was able to get away. After another attack on May 6 against a woman standing on a Vancouver sidewalk, police were able to make an arrest. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Q WHAT WE THINK:

S

chool districts across the province, including School District 43 and Vancouver, are lengthening the school day and extending spring break by an extra week to save money. What was a temporary solution to funding shortfalls is quickly becoming a tradition because it’s hard to cut holidays once they’ve been established and the financial savings aren’t meagre. SD43 expects to save about $400,000 and Vancouver about $1.2 million with the longer break. But what are the educational benefits, if any? Does the longer break result in reduced stress and fewer sick days or are students being forced to learn more in less time? Who knows? These decisions are being made to save money, not for educational purposes. And that’s too bad. More analysis and discussion would give the public some comfort that these decisions are being made with educational goals, not just dollar signs, in mind.

Digitized dating (sigh) in teen cyberworld AS I SEE IT Andrew Holota

U

ltimately, it has to happen, even in the world of “undating.” The Split. The Break-up. The Dumper and the Dumpee. It’s the mother lode of gossip fodder in the Facebooking, Tweeting, texting world of young teens. Good fun for the spectators. Deep and heartfelt drama for the cast. And another bemusing and bewildering episode for the theatre management (parents). Let me explain the concept from the perspective of an observer rather than a participant, although I have some reliable insight in regard to the latter. If you are a parent of a youth, you will most likely be familiar with the dating rituals of early adolescence — “early” being the operative word. Courtesy of television and media market-

ing and music videos and social networking, and whatever else our society throws at our eagerly accepting new generation, our newly minted teens are attempting to emulate what passes for adult relationships — sans the adult part. Kids who have yet to understand what hormones are try some on for size in the digital world. It’s all very clumsy and rather confusing, since rarely are any of these “real” romantic relationships (perish the thought). How does one “date” if one can’t meet the basic requirements of the ritual; i.e., actually go on dates, let alone without parental supervision or presence. Hence the term “undating.” They can’t drive. They have homework. They have family, and friends, and sports commitments — and on the weekends, often all of the above. So, that pretty much leaves school, and/or the social media option. More on that later. Hanging out together at school — what

does that entail? Most well-managed school environments have a policy of no-PDA (public displays of affection). No kissing, pawing, clutching, groping, etc. (Note to the principals and teachers who strictly enforce this policy: Thank you. Oh, thank you). So, little to no actual physical contact leaves just the labelling: “She’s mine. He’s with me.” Ownership status at 13. What a concept. Where the pseudo-relationship flourishes is in the online pseudo-world. For boys in particular, it’s great. You can text all sorts of things that sound cool and you don’t actually have to be in the presence of “her” to say it. Facebooking is a whole lot easier than face-to-facing. After the “dating” (lasting a few weeks or few months) comes the unhitching of the hardly hitched. And what do they have to pattern their break-up after other than the scripts they’ve been given? The same ones that compelled them to

sample this strange game in the first place. There are tears, awkward explanations, excuses, regard and regrets, silence or, in some cases, reconciliation, and then the cycle repeats. And throughout the process, there is a legion of social network “friends” who leap to become involved via endless hours of texted tidbits, speculation, inexperienced advice and ever-so-sincere support, all there for everyone to see. It’s an online, real-time soap opera. Even if I could peel away 40 years, I wouldn’t want to do it. It’s confusing enough for two very young people to try to replicate in their lives some form of adult relationship, let alone have it digitally displayed for others to experience vicariously. For those who live their lives in cyberspace, that last word might be one to Google. Andrew Holota is editor of The Abbotsford News, a Black Press sister paper of The Tri-City News.

FACE TO FACE: Does court-ordered ‘socialization’ in Quebec case go too far?

Parents have primary rights O

f the countless buzzwords that flutter around the practice of child rearing, none currently surpasses “socialization” in its pervasiveness. We are informed that infants should begin to experience the joys of early socialization in daycare; that toddlers should go to playschool to better socialize with their peers; that pre-schoolers must attend kindergarten in the name of socialization; and that children should enrol in school in the name of several goals, among which socialization is in the first rank. What happened to the days when “Go out and play with the other kids” was all you needed to hear about the subject? Sadly, those days are long gone. Nowhere was this more evident than when a judge ruled earlier this year that a family in Quebec must — yes, must! — send its two pre-school-age children to a daycare so that they can be socialized. Last year, the court also ordered that the family’s two older children must attend school for the same reason. The parents were not abusing their children. They were not starving them, beating them, neglecting them, filling their minds with hateful propaganda, enslaving them or

otherwise mistreating them. No. All they were attempting to do was to raise their brood by themselves, without any assistance from or interference by the state. But in Quebec, this is now apparently against the law. The father, who is a traditional Catholic, describes the government’s attack on his family as a witch hunt. I agree and hope the family’s appeal to the Quebec Superior Court is successful. In a surprise fit of reasonableness, my colleague on the other side of the page isn’t quite ready to embrace the judge’s ruling; nevertheless, he wants to celebrate the concept of “socialization” as one of the great accomplishments of the public-education industry in which he once laboured. My view is this: The responsibility to shape young minds is an awesome one. By law and custom, parents and the state share this vital task, with their interests often intersecting in the classroom. But each side must be careful to respect legitimate boundaries. Parents should not attempt to dictate lesson plans to teachers and the state should know that moms and dads, not bureaucrats and judges, have the primary right to raise — and socialize — their children.

uebec judge Nicole Bernier tossed a fox into the henhouse recently when she ordered that four home-schooled children be placed in public daycare and public school for “socialization.” Talk about red meat for antigovernment types like my Tea Party pal next door. The “government” is sticking its nose into our lives, abusing the rights of a good, hard-working, Christian family. How could this happen in Canada (actually, in Quebec, where we’ve never been quite sure they share “our values”)? I know how difficult it is to try to protect a child from a difficult home situation. Such interventions are never entered into lightly by school or the courts. Thus, my educator’s spidey sense told me that there were clearly details in this case that weren’t being shared. Details in such cases are like needles in a rhetorical haystack. It took me hours to sift through the allusions to Nazism, the “Quebec Gestapo” and our burgeoning police state. “Is this Canada or Russia?” screams the blogosphere. There are appeals from every home schooling group in North America to stop Quebec’s broadside attack on home schooling. This case is not an indictment

of home schooling. It is a specific concern raised by one school board about one family and the circumstances of their four home-schooled children. Judge Bernier ruled that the severe hearing loss of one of the children hadn’t been properly addressed; further, she felt the children were inappropriately separate from the world and were being taught using old-fashioned teaching methods. The judge criticized the mother for not registering her home-schooled children with the district, as required. The complaint was the second of two. The first resulted in a ruling that required the two older children to attend public school, where, according to school officials, they “demonstrated difficulty” in getting along with other students. As a result, the second ruling required the two younger children to attend daycare. Although given few facts in this media maelstrom, I would bet that given a chance to fully analyze the children’s situation, I would be more likely to agree with the judge than with the home-schooling parents. The nut of it is this: We should protect children from “bad teachers,” whether in schools or at home.

Oil Change Special

TRI-CITYY LETTERS The Editor, Last year, I spent six months gathering information and speaking to everyone I could regarding the special education assistant (SEA) situation in School District 43. When I presented my information to the board of education last spring, I was assured that changes would be made to improve the current system of placing SEAs with students. I was also assured that efforts would be made to reduce the number of SEAs a child would have throughout the year. Unfortunately for my 10-year-old son, this has not happened. He started Grade 4 last September with a temporary SEA and then, two months later, his regular SEA was in place. This transition was not seamless and it took at least two to three months for the relationship to start to work without intervention from other teachers in the school. More frustrating than this, however, is the fact that between January and May 2011, my son has had 11 different substitute SEAs. Clearly, the efforts of parents like myself, who simply want consistency in their child’s education, has fallen on deaf ears yet again. What will it take for SD43 to make changes to a system that is failing our students? Jana Demelo, Port Moody

He’s heading south The Editor, Until May 2, I was a firm believer that as a Canadian, I should buy products from Canadian suppliers that, like me, are presumably Canadian taxpayers and also support the Canadian economy. I never supported those who slip across the border on a regular basis to buy their gas, food, clothing, electronics, etc. at cheaper U.S. prices. But now you can definitely count me one of them. I wanted to buy a paperback book at the a book store in Coquitlam: printed U.S. price, $7.99, Canadian price, $10.99 — a premium of 37.5%, not even factoring in the current exchange rate in favour of our Canadian dollar.

The manager, when asked if he could make a decision regarding pricing, said he could but would not as he supported the printed Canadian price. His reasoning: The publisher sets the retail price when the book is printed plus the exchange rate was different then. Effect: one customer lost (although I bought about $60 worth of books at his store the previous week). No later than the end of this month, I shall travel south across the border and see what else I can buy there to make the trip not only enjoyable but, also, really worthwhile.

This story is an indication of Coquitlam council’s lack of common sense and understanding of transparency. Don’t we need a total replacement of this council and mayor? We are advised of a city budget surplus of $3.4 million — that’s $3.4 million the city management saved from over-taxing the residents.

Typically, government is now on mission to spend the money on whatever. Isn’t that just nice that we can spend it on such things as welcome signs rather than fire department needs benefiting all the community. How could council vote for signs?

What’s up with PMFD chief? City has little to say on Lambert

www.tricitynews.com

Moore gets his old cabinet post back Tri-City MP now also minister for B.C. as part of Tory majority gov’t By Janis Warren

By Todd Coyne

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

James Moore, the federal representative for Port MoodyWestwood-Port Coquitlam, was sworn in yesterday as MP — and as minister of heritage and official languages the day before. Prime Minister Stephen Harper returned the national portfolio to the five-term Conservative MP for his first majority cabinet following the May 2 general election. Moore has held the ministerial job since 2008. In addition to his heritage and official language duties, Moore is also the minister responsible for B.C. and he reports to the prime minister’s priorities advisory committee. As well, he’s vice chair on the social affairs committee so “the cabinet workload now is much greater than it was before,” he said from Ottawa Thursday.

Remo Faedo has been named the interim fire chief of Port Moody Fire Department among burning questions about its management. Foremost among those concerns is the whereabouts of Fire Chief Jeff Lambert as rumours of his possible departure continue to swirl within the department and at city hall. Neither Lambert nor his two deputy fire chiefs, Remo Faedo and Gord Parker, would return calls from The TriCity News over the past week, fuelling rumours that a shake-up was under way at the department. In response to questions from The News last week about Lambert’s whereabouts, a city official said he was on vacation. Yesterday, Port Moody city manager Gaetan Royer would only say: “Mr. Lambert is absent and Deputy Chief Remo Faedo is acting fire chief.” Port Moody firefighters’ union spokesperson Rob Suzukovich also declined comment on rumours of Lambert’s departure. On May 2, the city sent letters to four senior Port Moody fire captains, seeking expressions of interest in an early-retirement buyout package that included a $25,000 one-time payment. Chief Lambert’s absence comes amid tensions between the city and fire department regarding differences of opinion about the size and location of the planned replacement fire hall No. 1. tcoyne@tricitynews.com

Moore said he was happy to keep the heritage job. “I have a lot of things on the go right now and now that we have a majority government JAMES MOORE and I don’t have to spend a month getting briefed up and familiar with a brand-new post, I can take action and move on a bunch of things, like copyright reform.” Meanwhile, New WestminsterCoquitlam MP Fin Donnelly is set to be sworn in Tuesday morning with his NDP caucus that now forms the official opposition. It is not known if the former Coquitlam city councillor will retain his role as fisheries and oceans critic; NDP leader Jack Layton is expected to announce the shadow cabinet next week. The Conservative government’s throne speech is scheduled for June 2, with Finance Minister Jim Flaherty reading the budget the next day. jwarren@tricitynews.com

In-A-Day

The numbers are in from Sunday’s Wheel to Heal and they are some of the biggest ever for the annual Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation cycling fundraiser. Despite the wet weather, 238 people rode the 10 km, 40 km and 80 km courses, raising more than $65,000 for the Port Moody hospital. Wheel to Heal organizer Karen Horton told The Tri-City Newss (one of the event sponsors) that all of that money will go directly to buying much-needed medical equipment for the hospital. “The weather hampered us a bit in the [10 km] family ride but not the die-hards in the 80 km. We also saw growth in the 40 km as well,” Horton said. And the fundraising doesn’t end there. Next Thursday, May 26, the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation is hosting its Charity Golf Classic at Swan-e-Set Bay Resort and Country Club in Pitt Meadows.

But even with that improvement, the region would still need to dispose of an estimated 500,000 tonnes of waste beyond what can be handled at the existing Vancouver landfill and Burnaby incinerator. Continuing to truck it to the regional landfill at Cache Creek would be the last resort, as the plan is now written. Metro’s first preference is to build a new in-region wasteto-energy plant or, if that’s blocked, one at a site outside the region, likely at Gold River on Vancouver Island, where proponents already have required permits. Opponents of more garbage incineration, including critics who fear for air quality in the Fraser Valley, have urged Lake to reject that part of the plan. The minister can approve the plan, send it back for revisions or rewrite it himself. Metro would consider various new waste-toenergy technologies, not just incineration. Moore said Metro also wants the province to count electricity gener-

ated by Metro waste-toenergy plants as green power, for which B.C. Hydro pays a hefty premium. “We brought that up with Minister Lake,� Moore said. “We believe we should look to get a preferred rate for that renewable energy.� Cache Creek Mayor John Ranta, who wants Metro garbage to go to an expanded landfill planned by his town to preserve local jobs, said B.C. needs a clear and tighter definition of what counts as green power. He noted U.S. lawmakers have decided to count some waste-to-energy as green power but exclude what is generated from fossil fuel-based wastes. “Obviously you can’t continue to burn plastic in an incinerator and expect that to count as sustainable energy, because the input is manufactured from non-renewable resources,� Ranta said. A tussle is also continuing over whether the plan will let Metro export garbage to the U.S. The province vowed in 2009 to ban out-of-province garbage exports but

Teachers, students plug-in to virtual classroom world By Todd Coyne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

It may not be the real world but, these days, you’ve got to meet students where they’re at. That, in a nutshell, is the thinking behind the new online educational game 3D Quest Atlantis, developed by researchers at Indiana University for kids nine to 16 years and championed by two teachers at Sir Frederick Banting middle school in Coquitlam. On Wednesday, Cory Cleto and Meghan Enga made the case for the game to other School District 43 teachers and administrators in an attempt to encourage classrooms across the district and beyond to plug into the interactive online environment. To call Quest Atlantis a statistics game or a math or language game would be to miss the point. In fact, it’s so immersive that it’s best be described as practice for real life. “What they are doing is meaningful in a broader context,” Enga told The Tri-City News. “All of it is higher-level thinking and they have to use information they gather to make decisions

Teachers and students attend a training session in Quest Atlantis, a virtual learning environment. that mimic real life.” For example, one recent game scenario whisked the avatars of Banting students off to the Mkomazi Game Reserve — real-life home of the rare black rhino — to try to settle a land dispute between residents and conservationists that has been raging in the real world for 60 years.Working with their classmates, and often with students in Asia, the United States and the United Kingdom, Enga and Cleto’s Grade 6 and Grade 7 language and humanities students learn about perspective, mediation, math, morality, land use rights, global citizenship, responsibility to endangered animals and resource allocation. At the end of each task, the students write essays describing all sides of the conflict, what they did to resolve

it and why. Then the game propels them a few years into the future to see how their decisions impacted the world. Besides fostering collaboration and the use of different skill sets to solve big problems, Quest Atlantis also teaches kids how to play safely on the 21st century playground, the Banting teachers said. “We found that it’s very monitored by the kids in the game,” said Cleto. “If somebody were to use their last name, somebody else would be right there telling them not to.” As an added safety net, Cleto and Enga can also monitor what their students are saying, doing and learning in the game — either openly or without the students knowing — and researchers in Indiana also study the students on the network

in real-time and can send email reports to any user’s teacher immediately if there’s a problem. “The biggest draw for me is that we found a way to engage learners who were otherwise not engaged, particularly Grade 6/7 boys,” Cleto said. She credited Quest Atlantis with bringing many hard-to-reach students out of their shells, translating into real confidence and participation in the real world of the classroom. The Grade 6 and 7 students at Banting — one of only two B.C. schools using Quest Atlantis — are putting in about three to four hours a week on the program, depending on the availability of computers, Cleto said. But both Enga and Cleto admitted they and their students are logging hours of extra-curricular time on the game outside of class, learning and engaging with one another and having fun as they go. “It’s really fun,” Enga said. “I’m a technophobe but I’ve been able to connect with teachers in Australia and... other parts of the United States and Canada.” tcoyne@tricitynews.com

Three markets this summer in Tri-City It may still feel at times like winter but farmers’ markets are definitely gearing up for spring. The Coquitlam Farmers Market started its 15th year May 8 with its Mother’s Day seasonal opener in the Dogwood Pavilion parking lot and will continue to operate every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. until Oct. 30. Meanwhile, the Haney Farmer’s Market Society is planning to re-open the Port Coquitlam market at Leigh Square next Thursday, May 26 and the PoCo market run each Thursday until Sept. 15 from 3 to 7 p.m. Next week’s event will feature pizza, balcony baskets, a carrot cake cutting and entertainment from the Felice Women’s Choir and the Riverside secondary school drumming group. Both markets will continue to offer a wide range of seasonal produce, prepared foods, artisan breads and unique arts and crafts all made locally in B.C. As well, expansion plans are also underway for an evening market to run Fridays beginning in July at

Coquitlam’s Spirit Square; that would go from 4-8 p.m. each Friday through Sept. 16. The goal of the markets is to meet the need for urban residents living in the expanding city hall area, according to executive director Tabitha McLoughlin. Each week there will kids’ activities and entertainment, and an evening concert series featuring local artists and entertainers. “We hope to create an activity that people will plan to do on a Friday night — come down to the market, pick up some fresh produce and prepared foods for the week ahead, grab some dinner [or pack a picnic dinner], and stay to enjoy the talents of our local entertainers,” McLoughlin said in a press release.

Tyson Verkerk, Maya Smith, Natalie Desrosiers and Jordyn Swisher sell cupcakes and Nikayla Sihikalo is buying at a student-run fundraising market Tuesday at Cedar Drive elementary school to benefit Japanese earthquake relief efforts. Below, Ahmet Gurses, who came up with fundraising idea, is led around the parking lot by Christina Shannon.

Kids conjure market By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Cedar Drive elementary school kids went shopping for a good cause Wednesday during a student-run market to raise funds for the Red Cross Japanese earthquake relief effort. Students at the Port Coquitlam school laid out their cash for pony rides and cupcakes, books, hand-made jewelry and other treasures, and when they weren’t purchasing items, they were selling them. Te a c h e r C a rl e e n Grant said the students came up with the idea

of the marketplace as an alternative to chocolate sales and other traditional fundraisers. It was so creative and fit in so well with the school

curriculum that teachers and staff jumped on board to support them. “The motivation came from the children that they would see the thing through and they would feel they earned the money in the end and contributed their own hard work,” Grant said. The school’s 200 students took turns buying and selling and using their math skills to add up the profits with the goal of raising $1,000 to help children in Japan affected by the earthquake and tsunami in March. They ended up raising $1,270. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Kaila was on last year’s group that cracked down on impaired drivers. Middelaer’s daughter, Alexa, aged four, was struck and killed by a drunk driver in 2008. Since Alexa’s Team started three years ago, the team has removed 18,810 impaired drivers from the road.

HISTORY WINS

Four students at Coquitlam’s Nestor elementary won awards last week at the 2011 BC Heritage Fair regionals. Grade 5 students Camila Gomez, Alexandria Hagan and Marley Jordan as well as Grade 4 student Makayla Berry competed against 100 Grade 4 to 10 students from school districts 40 to 43, making projects that had a Canadian heritage aspect. The event was held May 13 and 14 at the Burnaby Village Museum. Berry was one of five students chosen to advance to the provincials, which will be held this summer in Victoria, said school spokesperson Phil Hernandez.

An SFU biologist who lives in Coquitlam has got the scientific community talking after he and his academic partner discovered how land and marine animals respond to heat. Nick Dulvy and biologist Jennifer Sunday, as well as Amanda Bates from the Deakin University in Australia, made the finding that contradicts popular belief that animals living in cooler climates, such as British Columbian frogs, are less heat tolerant than their relatives in the tropics. Their paper, titled Global analysis of thermal tolerance and latitude in ectotherms, was recently published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, series B.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a wet spring, so enjoy all the frogs GREEN SCENE Elaine Golds From the tiny but loud tree frog to the redlegged and bullfrogs, they all need wetland habitat

T

he cold wet spring, which hopefully is finally ending, has been a challenge for many. It has been particularly severe for people elsewhere in Canada who are dealing with floods â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a risk we might still face in the lower Fraser River region if the weather warms suddenly. Farmers worry that overly wet fields will prevent them from planting crops and, thus, earning their living. We have all lamented the lack of sunshine. Bird-watchers are concerned the damp start to spring has delayed the appearance of insects and will hamper the ripening of berries, and thereby pose severe challenges for nesting birds that rely on these as food. If there are any potential winners from the wet weather, it may be the frogs. Perhaps you have not heard any frogs calling this spring. For the most part, frogs have generally been big losers as development has moved across our landscape. While we have guidelines in place to protect salmon streams, their headwaters and associated wetlands are usually considered to be the non-essential pieces that can be re-purposed to fit human needs. I fondly remember a time when the long-gone forests on the Westwood Plateau would be filled with a stupendous roar from the calls of tiny tree frogs each spring. Preserving habitat for native frogs has proven to be an almost insurmountable challenge when development comes along. One of the problems is that local native frogs require wetlands each spring for egg laying plus extensive forests around these wetlands where adult frogs can hang out for the rest of the year. While it seems relatively simple to preserve a wetland, it is much harder to protect the surrounding forest that provides essential habitat for adult frogs and also collects the rainwater that will help to fill the wetland each spring. Our tiniest frog, the tree frog, is also our loudest. The spring breeding season ensures its chorus is especially loud and insistent. Tree frogs are an apt name for them because adults require a damp forest with abundant woody debris on the ground. Another native frog, the red-legged frog, now a species at risk, has similar habitat requirements. There remain only a few local wetlands where both these frogs may still breed; these include ones in Bert Flinn Park in Port Moody and unprotected sites along the Coquitlam River that remain under the threat of development. Tree frogs and red-legged frogs must not only deal with the threat of habitat loss but also with competition for the remaining wetland habitat from two much larger, non-native frogs. These two nonnatives are the green frog and bullfrog. Bullfrogs, which pose the far greater risk, are so large they predate on native frogs and even ducklings. Their tadpoles take two years to develop so they require permanent pools of water rather than ones that fill for only several weeks each spring. Roadside ditches or drainage channels can provide good habitat for bullfrogs. These frogs remain in wetlands even as adults so their habitat requirements are easy to meet. Como Lake, wetlands in Mundy Park and drainage channels in places like Colony Farm and DeBoville Slough provide plenty of opportunities to catch a glimpse of these frogs. The two species look somewhat alike but can be easily distinguished by their calls. Bullfrogs have a rumbling so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;jug of rumâ&#x20AC;? call while the call of a green frog sounds like a loose banjo string being plucked. Another native amphibian you might see, especially when hiking on Burke Mountain, is our native western toad, which is widespread throughout B.C. With a tough, warty skin that helps to prevent water loss, toads are much more terrestrial creatures than frogs. Like frogs, they are breed in wetlands but, once past the tadpole stage, can emerge as large groups of tiny toadlets that are known to

move in synchrony into upland forests. Occasionally, the sight of hundreds of small toads crossing a road becomes a newsworthy item in late July or early August. Quarry Road is one local site where such toad migrations have occurred in the past. Listening to a chorus of frogs on a spring evening was once a common experience but, sadly, it is much less so now. Regardless, we still have a few magical places where you can hear frogs and, perhaps, catch a glimpse of them. I hope you will enjoy these special places and take care of them so that future generations will be able to partake of the same delights.

Westwood Plateau, Coquitlam $

Colour and fragrance IN THE GARDEN Brian Minter

tile enough to be used in hanging baskets, containers or in bed plantings. It will, as most heliotrope varieties, do well in shade or sun. If you need it to be more compact and well behaved, simply pinch it back a few times. My second favourite variety is ‘Sachet’. It is a very dark foliaged variety with fragrant deep lavender-purple blooms. Its rich dark foliage provides wonderful contrast with pink, white or silver flowers and with other foliage. It’s also a compact grower and well suited to containers and plantings. ‘Blue Marine’, another compact dark foliaged variety, produces fragrant deep blue flowers about 10 cm across and grows only 25 cm (10 inches) tall and wide. Like ‘Sachet’, it’s a rich deep contrast plant to other colours. White heliotrope provides slightly less perfume, but its white flowers add a very different look to planters and ground beds. The blues will always be my favourite, but in the right situation, the old fashioned white varieties can provide quite a classy look. When folks ask for a flowering shrub that blooms all summer with a nice perfume, one plant leaps to mind - the Butterfly Bush or buddleia. Some species can be invasive but the great news is there are now many new varieties that are sterile and do not pose this very important environmental concern. A Proven Winner introduction, Buddleia x ‘Blue Chip’ from the ‘Lo & Behold’ series is the first miniature (24-30”, 61 to 76 cm) sterile variety. Hardy to zone 5, it requires little pruning or deadheading and blooms and re-blooms all summer

Finding lasting perfume can be tough

S

ummertime in our gardens, whenever it comes, should be the ultimate outdoor sensory retreat. The wonderful long evenings on the deck or patio should be the antidote to the stress we all feel during our busy days. The big question is can our decks, patios and gardens meet the challenge? Summer colour and how we blend analogous tones together is very important, but fragrance is perhaps the most important when it comes to creating that sensory refill. Ironically, most of the colour with which we surround ourselves has little perfume. It’s time to add the fragrance! As easy as it sounds, finding lasting perfume is a more of a challenge than most of us think. Finding plants that will accommodate sun or shade, be compatible with other plants and continue to perfume all summer is possible, but we all need to think out of the ‘flower box’ just a little. Heliotrope (Heliotropium arborescens) is one of the most universal of all summer blooming plants. However, not all heliotropes are created equal. Some of the new varieties are far more compact, but have little perfume. The very best is still the ‘nameless’ old fashioned variety that has that lingering scent of baby powder. It’s versa-

until frost. Its fragrant lavender-blue flowers will add a nice perfume to our gardens and patios all summer and of course, attract both butterflies and hummingbirds. I love the fact it grows well in containers and is a wonderful complement to so many trailing and upright annuals, perennials and vines. ‘Lo & Behold’ was the top buddleia at the RHS Wisley Gardens and won the gold medal at Plantarium in 2009. An often overlooked fragrant plant is Spanish Broom (Spartium junceum). This tender zone 7 plant needs a protected sunny dry spot, but will bloom with huge fragrant yellow pea-like flowers from early summer through autumn. It has a wonderful perfume that seems to carry throughout our patios and gardens. Spartium does very well in containers or in the ground at the edge of patios. It has virtually no leaves, but its rush-like stems make interesting focal points. It’s a ‘must have’ plant. Another under used plant for our patios is lavender. You need a hot sunny spot with very good drainage and a trained sense not to overwater! The fragrance of lavender is so nice to enjoy all year round, even to brush up against or simply rub your hands over the foliage. When they flower with the blue, lavender, pink or white flowers, they put on quite a show. Today, there are a number of lavender varieties from which to choose. The hardiest, of course, is the ‘angustifolia’, particularly ‘Munstead’ (zone 5) with its very compact habit. French Lavender, L. dentate candicans, has

become very popular because of not only its fragrant foliage but also its wide range of new flower colours that persist well into the summer. The sweetest smelling flowers are the English Spike Lavender, L. latifolia. It’s hardy to zone 5 and has very fragrant flowers all summer. My favourite lavender, however, is Spanish Lavender, L. stoechas. Its huge soft lavender to rich purple blooms are perfumed and so prolific they just keep coming all summer long and even into the fall with a little pruning. Most are tender (zone 7), but the new introduction, called ‘Anouk’, will survive most winters with ease. Its flowers are huge and tend to bounce around in the wind like huge purple bumblebees. Rosemary is another summer patio and garden plant that is not used nearly enough in summer planters and garden beds. Like lavender, it needs a very sunny, well drained soil to keep looking great and growing well. Rosmarinus officinalis ‘Tuscan Blue’ is a rigid upright with very aromatic foliage and clear blue flowers that persist into the summer. R.o. ‘Huntington Carpet’ is one of the best trailing varieties that looks great spilling over walls, baskets and containers. It doesn’t flower long, but its habit is very attractive. Rosemary is a zone 8 plant. R.o. ‘Arp’ is reputed to be the hardiest (zone 6), but I’ve had all these varieties summering outside our patio for eight years now in a protected, sunny, well drained location. It would be hard to inspire a summer garden without it.

Fabulous floor plan for entertainers or family gatherings... Huge oak kitchen, granite counters, 2 ovens, gas cooktop, new s/s appliances, sliders to huge deck, family room off kitchen, formal living & dining room, gracious large foyer with winding staircase... new h/wood on main, new decorator paint, light fixtures throughout home, master has private deck, view, corner f/p, huge ensuite with jetted tub & sep shower and HUMONGOUS walk in closet/dressing area... downstairs easily suiteable with office, games room, bedroom, bath... you really need to get inside... everything done is top quality... outside has been repainted last year, professional landscaping w/ sprinklers, fountain and wired lighting... easy care!!! Could easily be six bedrooms!

A Tri-City team will take third in FV tourney Best and Centennial will battle for bronze in the Fraser Valley championship By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

After both teams suffered disappointing losses earlier this week the Centennial Centaurs and Charles Best Blue Devils bounced back with convincing wins Wednesday in the girls’ soccer AAA Fraser Valley championship tournament. The win setup a third-place showdown at Town Centre Thursday night (after The TriCity News’ deadline) and guaranteed a medal for at least one Coquitlam club. But Centaurs coach Larry Moro said Thursday morning that both clubs were already looking past the Fraser Valley tournament to the provincials, where the teams will face off against the best in B.C. soccer. “We are excited because we have a great rivalry [with Best],” Moro said. “But on the other hand, the Fraser Valleys are a long haul. It is almost like we just want to get this done.” Moro’s Centaurs bounced back from an earlier 1-0 loss with a win over Lord Tweedsmuir Wednesday. Centennial’s offence came alive with Olivia Aguiar quickly converting a penalty kick, followed up by another goal six minutes later on a 20-yard shot to the corner. Amy Kirby knocked home a rebound in the 33 minute mark to give the Centaurs a comfortable lead. But the team was relentless. Sarah Furner netted a goal, along with picking up three assists, while Tia Edgar finished of the scoring with a goal late in the second half. Her goal helped the Centaurs secure a 5-2 win over their Surrey opponents. Following Thursday night’s game Moro said he would be holding two practices next week as his squad prepares for the provincial championship, which begins on June 2 in Kamloops. “It is mostly just fine tuning

Best, along with Tri-City rivals the Centennial Centaurs, secured a berth in the provincial championships in Kamloops next month. and making some adjustments,” he said. “We just want to get through our last game without any injuries.” Charles Best coach Dave Jones said his squad is also feeling good about next week’s trip to B.C.’s Interior. For most of the season the Blue Devils have struggled with injuries and have lost players to other school trips and extracurricular activities. But when the matches begin in Kamloops in two weeks Jones said he will have a his full compliment of players, who are excited to compete against teams from around the province. “I think everyone is feeling pretty good,” he said. “We are all excited to be going to the provincials.” On Wednesday his team defeated Sardis 3-2 in a tightly played match against the Fraser Valley’s third seed team. The victory will improve Charles Best’s seeding at the provincial tourney and helped create the third-place matchup with Centennial. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

The Adanacs are off The Coquitlam Sr. Adanacs will begin their quest for the Mann Cup tonight at the Bill Copeland Arena, where the squad will take on the Burnaby Lakers. The A’s are looking to redeem themselves this season after being dumped in the first round after seven games against the Victoria Shamrocks last summer.

For dolly Varden try (large #4 to #1) eggo, dolly whacker, bucktail, epoxy minnow, big black, muddler or zonker.

This week in our series on Vancouver sport fishing personalities we look at Earl Anderson. Known for creating the Anderson stonefly nymph in 1960, Anderson had other achievements to his credit. He made a career out of sport fishing as a commercial reel repairman, tackle salesman, and fly fishing instructor. Along with his famous Anderson stone, created for the rainbow trout of the Babine River, Anderson also created the “what else” and “yellow bell” for our Lower Mainland cutthroat. Among his other accomplishments, this self-taught fly caster won first place in dry fly casting at the 1950 Vancouver Sportsman Show and was the fly fishing instructor for School District 39 in Vancouver. During his teaching years — 1951 to 1982 — for the Vancouver school district he introduced 1,200 individuals to the sport of fly fishing.

For these alternate B.C. game fish try wooly bugger, big black, clouser’s deep, minnow, zonker, tied down minnow, bucktail, dolly whacker or crayfish. The ice is off most lakes under 3,500 feet above sea level. Since spring is three to four weeks behind, this year’s early spring tactics are in order. For long weekend success try wooly bugger, micro leach, egg sucking leach, chironomid, bloodworm, pumpkinhead, dragonfly nymph, halfback nymph, doc spratley or baggy shrimp. The Fraser River is getting high and brown. Try working the color

Weekend fishing looking good

Earl Anderson was born in the prairies in 1911 and moved to Vancouver around 1920 with his family. Earl along with his brothers Arne, Frank, and Willard, became known as the fishing Andersons, frequenting the Capilano, Alouette, Nicomekl, Stave, Silver, Coquihalla and Harrison Rivers. He lived to a good age of 84, departing in 1995.
