Welcome to Burke Mountain – and bears In the fifth part of our monthly series, The Tri-City Newss examines the challenges presented by development on Burke Mountain, where 24,000 people are expected to settle — in bear country. Also in this installment: A local blueberry farmer aims to live with the bears — and help them stay alive — and the story of how a bear cub named Mahalo changed things for a Port Coquitlam man: see pages 16 & 17. ((Also, more problems with garbage: see page 14.)

The Port Coquitlam man has become an advocate for bears and does everything he can to minimize bear attractants at his home. See article, page 17.

‘They helped save this woman’s life’

PoCo to forego its missed fees By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Coquitlam councillors voted unanimously Monday to waive two years of retroactive waste collection charges for 87 residents who, due to a city error, had not been charged their fees for years. Several residents complained last week that they were being punished for the city’s mistake when they were told they would have to pay the 2011 charges and those for the two previous years, totalling more than $530 per resident. Now, the city will only collect for this year’s service, a decision Willow Glen Estates strata president Clint Grayson said will be welcome news for low-income residents in his neighbourhood. see MAYOR O AMONG, O G, page g 3

A 44-year-old mother of three who was involved in a crash and daring rescue last Thursday on Highway 1 in Coquitlam has now had her condition upgraded from critical to serious. The Langley woman is alive thanks to the quick actions of four Good Samaritans after she suffered a major heart attack while driving in rush-hour traffic. Shortly before 9 a.m. July 21, the woman was driving west near the Brunette Avenue exit when she apparently lost consciousness. Her Volkswagen Golf slammed into a concrete barrier and kept going.

“It is fantastic,” said Grayson, who lives in the 25unit strata whose residents had not been charged a garbage levy since 1989. “It will really help the people who are on fixed incomes. There were some people that were really stressing about this.” When the city discovered the problem, staff told residents that it was customary to collect for the previous two years when administrative errors occur. Residents affected by the discrepancy were told they could pay the bill in three $176 payments over the next few months. But when several members of the Willow Glen Estates strata council asked to see the written policy, staff could not produce a document. The city is now taking steps to formalize the two-year collection practice. COUN. WRIGHT The decision not to collect retroactive payments came during a closed meeting Monday night. Staff said the in camera meeting was not open to the public due to a possibility of legal action on the issue. But based on public feedback and the need for a consistently applied system for dealing with collection discrepancies, staff recommended council waive the retroactive billing, which the city said was valued at approximately $27,000. Residents who have already paid their retroactive fees will have their money returned to them, the city said in a press release. Because Mayor Greg Moore was one of the 87 residents caught up in the billing discrepancy, he recused himself from the vote and said Coun. Michael Wright would be the spokesperson on the subject. Wright said the error was first discovered when the city updated its billing software and found that a number of residents were never charged for their garbage levy. Some residents had not had their fees collected going back more than two decades and staff estimates that more than $100,000 in revenue has been lost. “It slipped through the cracks,” he said. “It was never picked up.” The city, Wright added, collects garbage from 13,000 units, making the 87 homes that did not pay a small percentage. Residents who paid their fees, he said, subsidized those who were not charged, which works out to about $1 per home, per year. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Metro Van plan includes an 80% trash diversion target By Kevin Diakiw BLACK PRESS

The province has endorsed the regional waste plan, which includes the incineration of garbage. The region adopted the Integrated Solid Waste and Resource Management Plan (ISWRMP) a year ago this week. On Monday, Environment Minister Terry Lake gave it his approval. Aside from incineration, the plan also calls for an aggressive push for increased recycling and composting of household organics. Metro Vancouver board chair Lois Jackson said Monday the provincial approval was great news. “This solid waste management plan will help us preserve non-renewable resources, save energy, generate revenue, protect the environment and reduce greenhouse gases,” Jackson said. The ISWRMP was the result of a public consultation and involves several methods of waste disposal as the region attempts to cut down the amount of garbage headed for the landfill. The targets are an 80% diversion in the amount of waste heading for landfills, which are quickly hitting their maximum allowable intake. “But even with high diversion rates, we still need to deal with the more than one million tonnes of waste we cannot recycle, and the new plan does that by focusing on the recovery of materials and energy from the garbage that remains,” Jackson said. Surrey’s acting mayor, Marvin Hunt, said he is thrilled the plan got provincial approval. The former chair of the Metro Vancouver Waste Committee said it was 15 years in the making to find a plan regional directors could agree upon. “Now the work comes as we try to deal with technologies and find out

Now that its solid waste plan has been approved by provincial Environment Minister Terry Lake, Metro Vancouver will look at technologies such as incinerators to get rid of trash. what are the best technologies in the world to deal with our solid waste,” Hunt said. “This is a very good day.” Jackson said the plan looks at garbage as a resource and an opportunity to find better ways to protect our planet. “This is a plan that protects the environment and also generates revenue that will help pay for the things we need to safely and responsibly manage our garbage,” Jackson said. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said at the time the region passed the plan a huge host of emerging technologies should be considered. She also noted the Fraser Valley is vehemently opposed to incineration close to home. “We have to respect their views as well,” Watts said, adding she would approve of an out-of-region facility. “I think it’s the most balanced approach.” Because of strong public reaction to decrease the amount of garbage going to landfills, Metro staff are rec-

ommending an 80% diversion by 2020; previously, the goal had been a 70% diversion by 2015. Part of the plan is to compost all residential organics by 2012 and by 2015, banning all such food and kitchen waste from landfills. At least one green group is upset Lake approved the plan. “Decisions like this one today would seem to suggest that Minister Lake sees his job as helping big companies get around dealing with environmental concerns rather than actually protecting our environment,” said Ben West, healthy communities campaigner with the Wilderness Committee. “The real fight will begin when they pick a location and try to build one of these pollution-spewing garbage-burning monsters,” said West. “Wherever they try to do this we will be there to make sure people know the truth about what is being proposed in their backyard.” kdiakiw@surreyleader.com

P T F L a w nmo w e r & Small Engine Repair

Broadway project almost done By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

After more than a year of traffic delays on one of Port Coquitlam’s major connectors, the Broadway Street reconstruction project is approaching completion. Installation of traffic lights at Langan, Cameron and Industrial avenues is expected to be completed early next week and final line painting will begin shortly after, meaning the road will soon be completely open to motorists. Some storm drain and retention work is also planned for later this summer but that is not expected to significantly affect area traffic. “It is certainly satisfying to see the end of it,” said Dave Currie, Port Coquitlam’s manager of transportation. “Certainly, going forward, the city will see the benefits this route will provide.” Since construction began, many motorists have found alternate routes, including Pitt River Road and

Q Evergreen tax impact: page 9 Q PMH1 project repairs: page 15 Shaughnessy Street, which are not intended for large volumes of traffic. Currie believes that once construction along Broadway is complete, drivers will return to the four-lane thoroughfare when commuting between the north and south sides of the city. “Already, some of that diversion is coming back,” he said. “We also project that once the [Port Mann Bridge/ Highway 1] project is complete, we will attract more volumes south and west and further relieve traffic congestion in the downtown.” B r o a dw ay S t r e e t is seen by city staff as an important connection between the Coast Meridian Overpass and the Mary Hill Bypass. The road is also an important part of the city’s and the province’s disaster response route. The project is the last infrastructure upgrade

in Port Coquitlam that was funded through the Building Canada Fund — a federal stimulus fund set up after the economic downturn in 2008. The federal and provincial gover nments contributed $7.6 million to the project, with the remaining $3.8 million coming from TransLink’s Major Road Network Minor Capital Program and the city of Port Coquitlam. But the Broadway Street reconstruction project is not the only part of the north-south route that is being upgraded. This week, work is expected to commence on the Coast Meridian Road trunk sewer project between Galloway Avenue and Highland Drive, above David Avenue. Crews will replace a storm sewer, which is expected to take approximately eight weeks, during

King Edward Street Overpass Night-Time Closures

which time traffic will be detoured. During the first phase of the project, drivers will take Glenbrook Street of f of David Avenue and turn right on to Highland Drive, before reconnecting with

Coast Meridian. During the second phase, traffic will be detoured at Millard Avenue, going up Marguerite Street, once again reconnecting with Coast Meridian at Highland Drive. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Bike path plans for R’view By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

There may be hope on the horizon for pedestrians and cyclists navigating Lougheed Highway near Riverview Hospital in Coquitlam. The city will ask the provincial government if it may cut through the hospital grounds to build a multi-use pathway to link Colony Farm Road with Orchid Drive. Currently, that section of the highway is “the most challenging area� in the city for cyclists, with its narrow shoulders and speeding traffic, Bill Susak, Coquitlam’s general manager of public works, said at Monday’s engineering committee. Under its “preferred route,� the $4-million Riverview path would be 2,880 m long and would have

acceptable grades for pedestrians and cyclists, according to a report released this week. It would travel through the arboretum, existing parking lots and loading areas near vacant buildings before reaching Sorrel Street and, later on, Orchid Drive. Heritage trees would not be affected, said Catherine Mohoruk, Coquitlam’s manager of transportation planning. “It’s a good route, it’s a doable route,� said Coun. Brent Asmundson, the engineering committee chair, noting the provincial government should be open to the idea given its push to reduce greenhouse gases in B.C. Coun. Mae Reid, land use committee chair, said city taxpayers shouldn’t be on the hook to pay for the Riverview land to build the path. “It’s about time the gov-

ernment steps up for something,� she said. Two other routes are also being considered: the alignment over the Greater Vancouver Sewer and Drainage District right of way, which bisects the Riverview grounds and would cost $4.7 million to construct; and the Sheep Paddock Trail/CP Rail right of way, on the east side of Lougheed Highway, which would cost about $5.9 million to build over environmentally sensitive and floodprone areas. A consultant studied the potential routes with regulatory agencies and stakeholders, including the Accommodation and Real Estate Service (ARES), which oversees Riverview Hospital, the city of Port Coquitlam, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and CP Rail. jwarren@tricitynews.com

“The taxpayers in that community will not trust anybody anymore, as far as politicians are concerned.”

By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Coquitlam city council pushed through some last-minute work before the summer break this week, including granting zoning for a 19-storey tower in the soonto-be-revitalized Austin Heights neighbourhood. The application by Beedie Living to build the landmark highrise at the corner of Blue Mountain Street and Austin Avenue came t h r o u g h t h e c i t y ’s land use committee on Monday and, later that night, at city council. But in allowing second and third bylaw readings to rezone the one-acre property where a Shell gas station used to sit, city council also put a halt to any future towers planned for the core, saying it wanted to consult with the public on how tall the buildings could be along Austin and Ridgeway avenues. That decision was prompted by a large turnout of area residents at a public hearing in May for the Beedie tower. Some residents said they had no idea towers were part of the area redevelopment and many complained about the height of the tower, then proposed at 24 storeys, and cited as concerns potential traffic problems and shadowing over their homes. In response, city council put the Beedie bid on hold. And last month, Beedie held an open house to hear directly from residents to gauge their appetite on the maximum tower height. The result was a five-storey drop, a reduction of about 13 m — and 39 units. A restrictive covenant is set to be placed on title to cap the height at 59.4 m. Under the Local Gover nment Act, a second public hearing doesn’t have to be held because Beedie is lowering the building ceiling — a move that infuriated Coun. Lou Sekora, who accused council of “side-swiping” the area residents. “The taxpayers in that community will not trust anybody anymore, as far as politicians are concer ned,” Sekora said, “and I don’t blame them because politicians earn it... to do things that are not what the public wants.” He added, “I hope that the area residents go out and vote this fall at election time and tell people, ‘We’re not accepting

Selina Robinson Illustrations from Beedie Living, which will build a 19-storey tower at of Blue Mountain and Austin in Coquitlam, show the difference from the previous 24-storey proposal. the way you’re treating us.’” “So this is what they call silly season, is it?” asked Coun. Selina Robinson, referring to the pre-election rhetoric. “It has started.” D u r i n g c o u n c i l ’s 45-minute debate, Robinson spoke about the Austin Heights Neighbourhood Plan — conducted by the city over three years — involving many residents, business owners and stakeholders to renew the aging core “and I think it’s important that we respect that process,

too,” she said. “In that plan, it’s very clear. If you read it, it does call for highrises. It calls for several highrises.” Coun. Doug Macdonell said he has spoken with “hundreds of people” about the Beedie project “who want this and they far outnumber the people that are against it.... This is an iconic property. We’ve got a tremendous builder, a beautiful apartment that’s going to go up there that I think we’re all going to be very proud of and I think it’s going to set

the tone for how Austin Heights is going to evolve over the next 10 to 15 years.” Under the Austin Heights Neighbourhood Plan, which council adopted in April, the city plans to densify the area with 5,000 more residents in 2,500 more homes between Blue Mountain and Linton streets and Foster and Rochester avenues; a total of 15 sites are proposed to have towers of more than 15 storeys — including 955 Austin Ave. Houtan Rafii, resi-

dential development vice-president of Beedie Living, said told The Tri-City Newss yesterday construction is expected to start early next year, depending on pre-sales. jwarren@tricitynews.com

Heart attack the cause arrived two minutes later and assisted Mr. MacLeod in giving compressions to the woman, and called for emergency health services.” Smith said MacLeod and the Mountie were able to resuscitate the woman but she quickly stopped breathing again. By this time, paramedics arrived and rushed the woman to hospital. “It was crazy. You never expect something like this at 8:30 in the morning,” Sashi said. Doctors at the hospital determined the 44-year-old woman had suffered a massive heart attack while driving. Linteau said the RCMP are thankful for the quick-thinking and selfless actions of the four men who stopped to help. “They not only helped save this woman’s life, it’s very likely they also prevented other serious injuries or worse, as this all occurred on the busiest highway in the region, during rush hour,” she said. tcoyne@tricitynews.com

“But by the time I drove by, I realized that the lady was unconscious and slumped over into her passenger seat while we were going around 80 km an hour.” Harvey Sashi, a 22-year-old BCIT student, was one of those drivers trying to pin the erratic vehicle against the centre median from the side while Ron Macleod, an enforcement officer with the provincial agricultural land commission, got behind the Volkswagen and activated his emergency lights. “So I drove up in front of her,” Smith said, “and slowed down until she touched my bumper but I realized her car was too heavy. So I drove up further and stopped, and when she hit me, I let go of my brakes so it bumped me forward and that pushed her into the meridian and stopped her.” In a press release Friday, RCMP “E” Division spokesperson Cpl. Annie Linteau called Smith’s actions, putting himself and his Kia Sedona minivan between the VW and other motorists, “an amazing display of bravery, skilful driving and quick thinking.” Smith, MacLeod, Sashi and his passenger and fellow student Ibsan Islam, all jumped out of their vehicles and tried to open the woman’s car doors. “She was completely unresponsive but her eyes were wide open,” Sashi said. Smith grabbed a tire iron from his van and smashed the rear passenger window because the driver’s side was pinned against the concrete median, he said. MacLeod reached in and checked the woman for vital signs through the broken window. She was not breathing and had no pulse. The men unlocked the front passenger door and pulled the woman out, laying her in front of her car. “Mr. MacLeod began performing CPR right there in the HOV lane, with little regard for his own safety,” Cpl. Linteau said. “An RCMP traffic officer

You Can Help Reduce the Risk and Spread of Wildland Fires Coquitlam’s beautiful natural setting provides many benefits to its citizens; however, in the summer these wilderness areas can also pose a threat. Areas where the wilderness and urban development meet - wildland/urban interfaces - are an environment where a wildfire may spread easily from trees or vegetation to people’s homes and other buildings. Some factors that can influence the fire environment are weather, topography/ slope, available fuel and human activities. For residents who live in these areas, being aware of these factors and taking some precautions can assist in reducing the risk of a forest fire becoming an urban fire. We can all assist in protecting ourselves and our homes, our neighbours and our community. Y Reduce the amount of fuel - prune shrubs, remove dead and dry vegetation and tree limbs 2 - 3 metres from the ground. Y Break up continuous vegetation so there is no canopy of vegetation leading to your structure. Y Plant fire resistant vegetation around structures. Y Relocate firewood and combustible debris at least 10 metres away from structures. Y Choose a limited combustible or fire resistant product when you need to replace your roof. Y Keep the roof and gutters clear of dead needles and other accumulations. Y Prune branches that hang over the roof. Y Adhere to local bylaws, which do not allow any open burning, and dispose of smoking materials carefully. Y Know all exit routes from your neighbourhood.

Cops seek man who helped C o q u i t l a m RC M P are seeking a Good Samaritan who helped a woman after she was sexually assaulted and believe he may be a valuable witness in their case. On April 3, a woman was assaulted at a home in the Burquitlam area. The victim and her attacker were known to each other and, after the assault, he followed her to a nearby bus stop. The woman sought help from an unknown man who stayed with the woman until both got on the SkyTrain at Lougheed Town Centre Station in Burnaby. The suspect remained on the platform. The man spoke Chinese with the victim and is described as Asian, approximately 5’7” tall, with black hair wearing a black jacket. The accused, Godstime Obelikpyha, was arrested and charged with sexual assault. Police continue to investigate and said it is important the unknown Samaritan comes forward because he may have valuable information. Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to call the Coquitlam RCMP’s nonemergency line at 604945-1550. To provide information anonymously, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-2228477 or online at www. solvecrime.ca.

In the event of a wildland fire that has potential to impact you and/or your property, a formalized process is in place to ensure the safety of both. A warning would be issued to the impacted population in the form of an Evacuation Alert. This advises about the potential of an imminent threat to life and property. You would be asked to get prepared and be ready to leave on short notice. If the fire cannot be contained and is further encroaching, an Evacuation Order is issued when the impacted population would be ordered to leave the area immediately. The affected area is secured against re-entry and controlled re-entry may be permitted in certain circumstances. Once the emergency situation is under control and the emergency zone is declared safe, an Evacuation Rescind is given. Plans are put in place to ensure an orderly return to the affected area. An Evacuation Alert and Order may be issued by media broadcast, door-to-door notification, or public address, etc. Coquitlam Fire/Rescue, along with other agencies, has the means to suppress or control structure and wildfires. With cooperation from homeowners or business owners in these areas who reduce fuel and exposure to wildland fires, the risk of fire can be minimized. Please do your part to help prevent the spread of a wildfire into our urban environment.

Take a walk

Pedestrians will have an easier time accessing Leigh Square as the city of Port Coquitlam begins to implement some of the measures in its Downtown P e d e s t r i a n Circulation Study (DTPS). A sidewalk will be added along the west side of Donald Street in order to improve the walking connections between Wilson Avenue and Leigh Square. “It will be safer and more of a defined space for pedestrians,” said PoCo’s transportation manager Dave Currie. “It will be a more pleasant path to walk through.” While Donald Street will be improved for pedestrians, the route will continue to have twoway vehicle traffic from Wilson Avenue to Leigh Square. All city-designated parking stalls will be retained, with some being relocated eastward. The DTPS, which w a s d r a f t e d e a rlier this year in an ef fort to improve walkability in Port Coquitlam’s downtown area, identified the route as a priority for pedestrians.

Sharing tax pain Other biz taxes will make up for cash lost to line

THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Port Moody business landowners are due for a property tax increase next year as the province eyes 16 downtown properties to pull from the city’s tax roll to accommodate the Evergreen Line. The Evergreen Project Team identified the properties for expropriation to the BC Transportation and Finance Authority in preparation for construction of the rapid transit line connecting Burnaby to Coquitlam through Port Moody. The removal of the lands from the city’s tax revenue stream will leave a gap of up to $210,000 in annual revenue that the city will collect from all similarly zoned properties. According to a July 19 report from the city’s corporate services department, the 16 properties dotting Clarke, Columbia, St. Johns, Spring and William streets as well as Electronic Avenue, are a combination of Class 5 (light industry) and split Class 5/6 (light industry/ business-other).

TRI-CITY NEWS FILE PHOTO

Land expropriations will hit Port Moody’s bottom line. According to tax code, the lost revenue from the removal of these properties will be shared by all other Port Moody properties in those categories. Those other taxpayers total 33 light industrial property owners and 464 owners of other business lands. T he city’s cor porate services director, Paul Rockwell, said the added tax burden would not be distributed as an even percentage across all properties but would fluctuate depending on many variables, including property value and current property tax assessment. The $210,000 tax gap is an estimate based on the BC Transportation and Finance Authority developing all of the 16 properties, Rockwell said, with a low-estimate of $132,000 should the province only use half the lands.

Raise a glass to sober drivers C

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside

ount drinking and driving as another element of the 20th century’s car culture that’s been left behind in the 21st century. Recently, the province made the obvious decision to keep tough rules introduced 10 months ago that have worked to curb the carnage caused by intoxicated drivers. Across B.C., there have been 30 deaths in a sevenmonth period that averaged 61 fatalities in each of the previous five years. This is more than enough evidence to keep the laws as they are (there had been talk of easing the rules after bars and restaurants complained the laws were too harsh and hurt business). But while this has been somewhat true, there has also been an evolution in how people think about their drink. Whether switching from boozy beverages to mocktails or planning an alternative way to get home, the general public appears to have adapted to the new reality. Part of this can be attributed to fear of getting caught but hopefully it also signals a sea change in society. Younger generations have grown up being told about the dangers of drunk driving and their education has rubbed off on older citizens. The glory days of gas guzzlers are long gone and city planners are more and more looking at ways to keep people out of their vehicles. Driving and drinking, once far too common, is also a relic of a past era. Taxis, bus service and even courtesy rides from Good Samaritan organizations are now readily available for people who want to go out for a drink and get home without driving. The message is clear: There are options to avoid hitting the road hammered. The law works and it’s time for all B.C. drivers to work with it. – Black Press

Zalm’s HST horror stories have happy endings BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA he B.C. government has released its audited public accounts for what Bill Vander Zalm enthusiasts strain to depict as Year One of the Harmonized Sales Tax Apocalypse. So let’s survey this allegedly bleak landscape of shuttered hair salons and seniors hoarding pet food, waiting for Belgian bureaucrats to come calling for more. Retail sales increased 5.3% in 2010. Growth has softened so far this year, but there’s no evidence it’s due to the HST (retail sales are mostly goods, which are mostly unaffected.) B.C.’s economy grew by 4%, third in Canada behind those new northern tigers Saskatchewan and Newfoundland. We beat Alberta as well as have-not Ontario. The provincial deficit dropped by nearly a billion dollars, even though spending on

T

government services continued its relentless rise with another billion-dollar increase. That’s 4% spending growth, the same as the growth rate of the economy. But as usual, two thirds of it is health-care spending, growing closer to twice that fast. Hair salons? My barber voted ‘No’ to Vander Zalm. His accounting is simpler, his price is still reasonable and customers aren’t generally prepared to start cutting their own hair. Restaurant association head Ian Tostenson predicted thousands of restaurants would close because of HST and then mused about running for premier. Fortunately, we were spared from both of these scenarios. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon put out some spin about how tight-fisted spending control brought the deficit down from the 10-figure range. Prudence, he called it. Prune juice is more like it. It was economic growth that paid the bills, with mills and mines opening and consumers spending. Former premier Bill Bennett’s

observation still applies: B.C. is a small, openresource economy in a volatile world market. Commodity markets have strengthened to the point where even the rising Canadian dollar is being overcome. Expansion to Asia is proceeding, assisted by a long-term federal-provincial strategy that the NDP opposed. A skilled labour shortage already exists in the B.C. northeast and is forecast to spread across the province. The government’s latest labour market survey estimates that B.C. will be in a labour shortage by 2016 and there will be one million job openings by 2020. One third of these will come from economic growth, two thirds from retiring baby boomers. Unlike next year’s HST revenues, this prediction is relatively easy to make with precision. Job growth does depend, however, on a competitive tax environment, with competition from Ontario and elsewhere. The public accounts also confirm what we found out last fall, that HST revenues have run ahead of expectations. HST haters like to claim the tax was promised to be revenue-

neutral. That finance ministry estimate was only for the first year and it proved pessimistic. As with gasoline prices, external forces drown out B.C. tax adjustments in the short term. Currently, it looks as if going back to the old provincial sales tax would cost the treasury about $600 million in revenue in each of the next few years. HST rate cuts are made up by economic growth. Or we can return to a 60-year-old retail sales tax developed for a post-war, pre-service economy, and continue a B.C. political debate that revolves around 30-year-old socialist ideology. The deficit will immediately jump back up to the 10-digit range. So if your HST referendum envelope is still in the bottom of your recycling bin, you might consider fishing it out and casting a No vote. They have to be delivered to Elections BC by Aug. 5.

Sorry about close call but... The Editor, This letter is intended for the woman I came close to hitting at about noon on July 14 as she crossed St. Johns Street at Kyle Street in Port Moody: As I said three times, I am genuinely sorry that I frightened you. In almost 40 years of driving, I have never caused an accident, much less hit a pedestrian. My sister was hit by a car almost a decade ago and, although it was, as such things go, a minor accident, it affects her to this day. If I were ever to hurt someone in such a manner, I would never forgive myself. But... Did it occur to you when you

got dressed this morning that black pants, a black rain coat and a black umbrella might not be the best wardrobe choices for a dark, rainy day? You looked very nice but on a dark day, black can make you virtually disappear. Did it occur to you to make eye contact with me before marching trustingly out in front of my car? Pedestrians have the right of way but drivers are human and, therefore, fallible, and left turns are the single most dangerous traffic manoeuvre, so it only makes sense for pedestrians to make eye contact with turning drivers to make sure they’ve been seen. Did it occur to you that, on slick pavement, even once I saw

you I might have gone into a skid and been unable to avoid hitting you? If that had happened, no amount of icy glaring at me would have compensated for the injuries you would likely carry around for the rest of your life. I am genuinely sorry I frightened you. But you might want to count your blessings that the person who almost hit you has a near-40-year safe driving record and keeps her car in good repair. And you might want to think about whether it would be worth being well dressed when your lawsuit went to court years after you’d already lost a dare against a 2,000-pound hunk of metal. Lynne Melcombe, Port Moody

What’s O’Neill’s point? And his ‘convictions’? The Editor, Re. “Not a natural situation” (Face to Face, The Tri-City News, July 22). Enough is enough. How much longer will columnist Terry O’Neill be allowed free rein with his social conservative pontifications? His most recent rant supposedly regarding gender imbalances (in Canada — or is it in China or India? He is not clear) is quite transparent in its real purpose: another attack on a woman’s right to choose.

The so-called investigative journalist whom he appears to cite, Andrea Mrozek, is actually a senior member at the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada, an appendage of Focus on the Family Canada, an ultra-conservative agency with a history of attacking any and all hard-fought gains in the advancement of the fundamental rights of gays, lesbians and feminists regarding abortion rights, the right to marry, etc. Mr. O’Neill states that he “cannot claim to be without convic-

tion in this matter,” which begs the question just what are his convictions? Does he share those convictions of Focus on the Family Canada and the IMFC that can be understood by many to be homophobic or misogynist? Surely, before he can be considered a legitimate and forthright commentator, he will have to present his “convictions” in a non-cryptic way so all will be able to understand his ultimate goals and desired outcomes.

The Riverview Hospital grounds, if preserved as an historic site, could still provide health care and its horticultural legacy would be preserved, says the letter writer.

A gift to all of Canada The Editor, A letter to Premier Christy Clark: You may not be aware that the city of Coquitlam has applied to the federal government to have the Riverview Hospital lands recognized as a national historic site. However, the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada informed the city that the application could not be advanced because they’re not able to obtain approval from the landowners — namely the B.C. government. The city requested, unsuccessfully, a letter of endorsement over a year ago. As a national historic site,

Riverview could still serve the mentally ill and all Canadians as a treatment and research centre, a conference centre and a college/university to focus not only on health care training but on research into mental health treatments. In addition, its horticultural and architectural legacy would be a valued and valuable tourist destination. Riverview could become a historical gift to all British Columbians and Canadians from this government, to be cherished and cared for with pride for generations to come. Would you, Premier Clark, give the approval for this application? Jenny Farley, Port Coquitlam

Vandal targets get a break on paint THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Towel causes blaze More than $30,000 damage was done to an apartment on Howie Avenue last week after fire broke out because a towel was left on a lamp. Coquitlam fire crews responded to the blaze at around dinner time last Wednesday and were able to contain the flames to one bedroom of the third-storey unit. “Initial reports was that it was a towel left on top of a lamp,� Delmonico said. “The resident was not home at the time.� Despite firefighters’

ability to contain the blaze to the one unit, there was extensive smoke damage in the surrounding units. No injuries were reported as a result of the fire. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Coquitlam RCMP and victims of graffiti are fighting back against taggers who they say hurt the community and make people feel unsafe. A voucher system has been set up between the police and General Paint to help those who have been vandalized buy discounted paint so they can quickly cover up the damage. “Graffiti costs our communities tens of thousands of dollars every year and it’s a tough crime for police to handle through traditional methods,� said Const. Matt Berinbaum, who manages the C o q u i t l a m RC M P ’s graffiti strategy. “This new voucher system will be an important part of that work.� Graffiti victims in

Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam who report the incident to the RCMP can use their police file number at any community police station to get a voucher for paint and supplies. The vouchers will give applicants access to lower prices for use in graffiti cover-up projects. Berinbaum said the vouchers are part of a multi-pronged approach to addressing the graffiti issues. Police are also taking the time to investigate all reports of vandalism and are partnering with crime prevention programs in an effort to stop graffiti before it starts, he added. “Every program and project gets us closer to graffiti-free neighbourhoods,� said Jodie McNiece, the head of Port Coquitlam’s community police station. “It’s great to give peo-

PoMo resident encourages neighbours to secure trash By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Port Moody woman is urging her neighbours to kee p their garbage indoors after a family of bears ransacked the neighbourhood last week in search of food. Susan Zanders took photos of garbage strewn about a sidewalk and plastic bags torn apart with meat trays, food waste and boxes spilling out and sent them to The TriCity News. “He got a great scoop on the neighbour’s garbage,” said Zanders, an April Road resident. She believes PoMo’s garbage bylaw is too lax because garbage carts don’t have to be locked in a garage or shed, just secure so they can’t be carried away by bears. “The bears can still smell the food,” said Zanders Some people are even defying the city bylaw that dictates garbage can only be put out at the curb between 5:30 and 7:30 a.m. on collection days and carries a possible $150 fine. Zanders said she’s

Port Moody resident Susan Zanders said bears are being attracted to her April Road neighbourhood because of unsecured garbage from residents in the area. concerned more bears will be lured into the area if people don’t take care of their garbage, yard waste and recyclables. If the bears become garbage-habituated and a potential public danger, they

could be shot. PoMo’s environmental technologist, Rick Saunier, said the city has no plans to change its bylaws but agreed that people should keep their garbage indoors if they can. The problem

is, many of the older homes in the area don’t have enclosed garages but Saunier noted people can tether their garbage and waste carts to keep bears from getting at the items inside. But people should know by now not to put their garbage out before the mandated set-out times and Saunier said four homeowners will be getting $150 fines. Bears are now found in every part of the city, he said, but he doesn’t think the bear problem is any worse than in previous years. “It’s still early to tell,” he said. “We’re only halfway through July.” Bear sightings tend to rise in the late summer and early fall, when bears are in hot pursuit of high-calorie food to fatten themselves up before the winter hibernation. In addition to securing garbage, Tri-City residents are encouraged to remove ripe fruit immediately and eliminate all bear attractants, such as pet food, greasy barbecue grills, and bird seed. newsroom@tricitynews.com

Contractors upgrade PMH1 retaining wall By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A large retaining wall built as part of the Port Mann/Highway 1 project near the Coleman Street on-ramp will require upgrades after engineers discovered the barrier did not meet provincial standards. Max Logan, communications director for the PMH1 project, said the construction contract calls for a wall that will last 75 years. Recent assessments found that the work fell short, however, and crews have been busy upgrading the retaining structure for the last week. “They were doing an assessment and the assessment found they were not going to meet that durability work,” Logan said. “They are now in the process of making some upgrades to it.” He was quick to point out that the retaining wall will not need to be replaced. Construction crews will remove the outside layer of cosmetic concrete, which is being replaced by additional layers of concrete to reinforce the barrier’s

strength. Logan said once the work is complete, engineers expect the wall will meet the provincial standards called for in the construction contract. Because there is a fixed-price agreement between the contractor and the province, he added, taxpayers will not be on the hook for any additional costs that may come from the extra work. “All of the elements of the project are being delivered at a previously agreed upon price,” he said. Upgrades to the retaining wall are not expected to delay the overall timeline of the project, Logan said. The PMH1 project includes a new 10-lane Port Mann Bridge, the widening of Highway 1 and upgrades to the interchanges linking with the freeway. The project will cost taxpayers $2.46 billion and spans a distance of approximately 37 km, from the McGill Street interchange in Vancouver to 216th Street in Langley. gmckenna@tricitynews.com

Three Coquitlam churches are slated to again roll out their welcome mats for the homeless in the TriCities this winter. On Monday, city council approved the paperwork that would allow the Hope For Freedom Society to set up a cold/wet weather program at Coquitlam Alliance Church, Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship and Calvary Baptist Church — the same venues that have been used in the past for temporary sleeping quarters. In three years, neither the city nor police have logged any complaints about the operation, said Bruce Irvine, the city’s manager of community planning.

JENNIFER GAUTHIER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The Coquitlam Alliance Church is one of three locations hosting the mat program. A maximum of 30 beds are available for people who are shuttled to the churches (Port Coquitlam and Port Moody also have a church each available). The zoning bylaw text amendment to designate the Coquitlam churches as temporary use permit (TUP) areas was approved after a public hearing earlier Monday night that saw no opponents but was viewed by Sandy and Cathy Bur pee of the Tri-Cities’

Homelessness Task Group. Irvine said the TUPs will be in place until a permanent shelter for the homeless is built at 3030 Gordon Ave. Funding for that project has yet to be committed but Irvine said BC Housing is now considering shelter operators.

The Tri-Cities’ newest development is prime bear country. On Burke Mountain in northeast Coquitlam, where an estimated 24,000 people will settle over the next two decades, bruins are losing habitat and looking for food, which means educating new residents about their furry neighbours is crucial.

D

rake Stephens may not look like the Welcome Wagon lady of yesteryear but Coquitlam’s bear aware co-ordinator is doing the same job with people moving into the new Burke Mountain community. Stephens, a long time resident of Burke Mountain himself, is touring the city’s newest neighbourhood to welcome people with tips for living with bears. The community that will one day house 24,000 people backs onto the 38,000-hectare Pinecone Burke Provincial Park, which has bear habitat stretching all the way to Whistler. It’s no wonder, then, that the area is frequented by bruins seeking to load up on calories with natural food sources or garbage from unsecured trash cans. For Stephens, who How have you grew up in the area been dealing on a hobby far m with bears in that was a bear magyour neighbournet until his dad rehood?

On average, seven bears are killed each year in Coquitlam and Stephens would like to see that number vastly reduced with proper stewardship of garbage, bird seed, ripe fruit and other potential bear attractants. He was one of the first to purchase a special bear-proof container for storing his trash and even freezes his food-waste to reduce odours and urges others to do the same. When he visits new Burke Mountain residents, he says he’s greeted with open arms because people new to the area are eager to learn how to live in harmony with bears. “I knock on the door, it’s ‘welcome to the neighbourhood’ and I let them know this is bear country, give them a brochure,” he says. “I’ve done thousands of those over the last

People are happy to talk about it, share their tips and share their stories.” He’s also helping the city enforce its garbage bylaw by scoping out neighbourhoods the night before trash collection day to make sure people aren’t setting their garbage out early. All cities in the Tri-Cities require garbage to be set out between 5:30 and 7:30 a.m. on collection day and will issue warnings and fines if these rules aren’t followed. Garbage also must be properly secured in a garage or storage shed, and in many cases an animalresistant storage container or locking device is required, too. Port Moody issues animalresistant bins to its residents but requires they be tethered or locked up. Coquitlam sells animal-resistant containers for $140 and Port Coquitlam sells Critter Guard locks for $75. There’s a good reason for these rules, says Stephens, who has seen the devastation caused by people who set their garbage out early. The bears sniff it out and when they find out that garbage is available, they don’t leave. Then they become a potential problem and usually end up dead. see ‘WE WE ARE ENCROACHING ENCROACHING’,, page 17

THE BEAR FACTS

From the book ‘Bear-Ology: Fascinating Bear Facts, Tales and Trivia,’ with permission from the author Sylvia Dolson and the Get Bear Smart Society. How do bears pick berries? It’s simple according to Jessica Teel, or www.grizzlybay.org. The secret is in a bear’s lips. Unlike humans’ lips, which are attached to our gums close to our teeth — bears’ lips are large and extend greatly away from their teeth. Their lips are highly dexterous and can be used to grasp and manipulate objects — much the same way humans use their hands. Bears have long tongues, too, to scoop up ants or berries. A bear’s tongue can reach six inches out of their mouth. Do bears roar? Not really. They do make loud guttural sounds and huffing noises, usually as a warning or in response to an attack. Often the sounds that bears make in Hollywood movies are dubbedover lion roars. Bear fights are usually conducted in relative silence compared to how they are portrayed in films.

Blueberry farmers and bears go together like blueberries and pie, and for the most part, it’s a harmonious relationship, says Sid Kwantes. The farmer has taken over his father-inlaw’s holdings on Oliver Road and says bears come with the territory, although he does his best to discourage them. He has erected electric fencing, although bears still dig their way in, and he stores his garbage in a locked shipping container. “You try to do what you can,” he says. “As you know, you’re going to have conflicts with native life, it’s part of what makes Canada.” He’s more concerned about humans who are drawn to the area near Minnekhada Regional Park to watch and photograph bears. They park along the road to watch the beasts and he fears there will be a conflict one day and someone could get hurt. PHILIP WARBURTON PHOTO “Common Blueberry fields attract bears sense is in short and local farmers are doing supply sometheir part to keep them away. times.” Park officials are also concerned and will shut down the park early if people continue to congregate, according to Metro Vancouver parks biologist Alison Evely. Evely also encourages people to travel in groups if they choose to walk in the park or along the dikes during the summer and fall bear season. “People should be keeping their distance,” she said. “What we don’t want to see is people approaching bears.” As a known bear haunt, Minnekhada has taken several steps to make the park safer. Bear-proof garbage bins have been installed and signs go up warning people when bears are in the area. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Encounter with bear cub shaped PoCo man’s views T

he only bears Philip Warburton wants inside his yard are made of plastic and the decorations sit inside his flower beds. Otherwise, the Port Coquitlam resident does everything he can to prevent black bears from sniffing around his property and rooting through his garbage. He picks his raspberries and peaches as soon as they are ripe, removes bird seed during bear season and locks up his trash and compost with a Critter Guard system that keeps bruins out. “I truly believe that residents of the high bear prone areas [near parks and greenbelts] must do their part to keep their homes safe and as unattractive to bears as much as possible,” he says. The Safeway employee has been an advocate of bears for years, ever since he saw a bear cub on one of his walks at Minnekhada Regional Park and found out that it was orphaned; it climbed a tree to evade capture, was tranquillized and taken to Critter Care Wildlife Society, where it was rehabilitated and returned to the forest. Warburton signed up to be a volunteer with Critter Care and has helped out at the Langley centre ever since. “I realized that rehabilitation is the right thing to do but it’s not always the best thing,” Warburton says, and thus a bear advocate was born. He wanted to make sure he didn’t attract bears to his yard so he bought a Critter Guard system and asked the city of PoCo to recommend them to other residents. Critter Guard locks are now required in bearprone areas north of Lougheed Highway and the area south of Lougheed Highway along the river that is bounded by Shaughnessy Street, Pitt River Road and Lougheed Highway unless garbage can be locked in a garage or shed. While his Lincoln Park home has since been visited by bears — and one took a swipe at his garbage bin — Warburton believes it’s best to be proactive and he has since relocated the compost and trash carts behind a tall fence. He would like to see other people do more to remove bear attractants and he

‘We are encroaching’

While walking in Coquitlam’s Minnekhada Regional Park, Philip Warburton (below left) encountered an orphaned bear cub later named Mahalo (left) that was taken to the Critter Care Wildlife Society, where the Port Coquitlam resident eventually became a volunteer.

“We’re baiting the bears in,” he warns. Stephens isn’t the only Burke Mountain resident who is helping new residents learn to live with bears. Realtor Rebecca Pembroke provides links on her website www.burkemountainhomes.com for people looking for information and will openly talk about the bruins when she’s selling a home or welcoming a new family. “It’s one of the questions I get asked: ‘Are there bears around here?’” said Permack. “It’s something residents need to know about more.” A relatively new resident to Burke Mountain herself, Permack said her yard was visited by a bear cub and she’s aware of the importance of securing garbage and getting rid of bear attractants. For some, “it’s a pain to have to put your garbage out so early in the morning,” but the ramifications of not doing so are messy when the trash is strewn about the road by bears or raccoons. “It’s really sad because we are encroaching on their territory. We need to do it with some respect.” dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Burquest Jewish Community Centre in Coquitlam is offering a pair of films presented by Howard Hoffer and Roz Davidson-Hoffer on Aug. 4 starting at 6 p.m. • Wooden Synagogues of Europe: Before the First World War, more than a thousand wooden synagogues dotted Eastern Europe, many standing for centuries. For decades, the world believed all these structures were lost but a team from Hebrew University discovered six in Lithuania and a film crew documented these remaining examples and discovered four more synagogues. This film tells the story of the synagogues,

the life that surrounded them before the war and what happened to them in the last 60 years. • The Dead Sea Scrolls: From ancient text to modern science with carbon dating, DNA analysis, archaeology and forensics, a 35-minute film shows a piece of the past, taking viewers from Africa’s East Rift Valley to the Shrine of the Book of Jerusalem. Viewers will learn how modern technology are unlocking the secrets of the Dead Sea Scrolls. To buy tickets ($10), call 604-5527221.

Inspiration in the work Say goodbye to pain and words of gardening

Experience the benefits of Low Intensity Laser Light Therapy Knee Pain

A GOOD READ Barbara Buxton

G

ardens are wonderful places but keeping them in good condition seems to take a lot of work, leaving gardeners little time to just enjoy them. Some people have managed to not only work at and enjoy their gardens, however, but have also found time to write about their garden experience. A number of excellent books extol the virtues of the garden and allow us to dream even if we don’t have a real garden to enjoy. If you like gardens, these books will inspire you to new understanding of the beauty around you. A Blessing of Toads, with delightful colour illustrations by writer Sharon Lovejoy, is a collection of her “Heart’s Ease” columns from Country Living magazine. This book is a satisfying read and a source of advice and inspiration, with chapters such as “The Seediest Garden in the Neighbourhood” and “How to Enchant a Wasp.” Share in the down-and-dirty of the garden as well as the appreciation of its inhabitants. Sit on the porch in an evening and experience with the author the joys of the natural world around you. Cultivating Delight: A Natural History of My Garden n by Diane Ackerman celebrates the sensory pleasures to be discovered in a garden. Whether deadheading flowers, feeding hummingbirds or studying slugs, she enjoys all aspects of the work and the pleasure of her garden. Sprinkled with garden history and lore, the lyrical prose invites the reader to share in the wonders of the garden world. For gardeners with a philosophical bent or philosophers who enjoy metaphor, Gardening Philosophy for Everyone: Cultivating Wisdom is a fascinating collection of essays from a variety of writers, each with a unique slant on the contemplation, history and the aesthetic and ethical dimensions of gardens. This is a great book to read on a plane or snuggled inside on a cold winter night. For a more light-hearted look at gardens and gar-

dening, take time to relax with Des Kennedy’s books The Passionate Gardener: Adventures of an Ardent Green Thumb and Crazy about Gardening: Reflections on the Sweet Seductions of a Garden. These irreverent, tongue-in-cheek essays about the follies and foibles of the passionate gardener capture the brilliance of the gardening life, with all its successes and failures, as well as the moments of sheer delight that make all the work worthwhile. If you enjoy memoirs as well as gardens, have a look at My Natural History: The Evolution of a Gardener by Liz Primeau. In this captivating story, the author reveals her lifelong passion for gardening, from her childhood theft of green onions from her father’s vegetable garden, through raising four children, to her career as editor of Canadian Gardening magazine. Packed with fascinating facts on the history and art of gardening as well as advice, this book is for everyone who enjoys a relationship with growing things. Gardens are developed to individual taste and much of who we are is influenced by the land around us. The Garden that You Aree by Katherine Gordon explores this idea through the lives and stories of eight very different gardeners from B.C.’s Slocan Valley. Richly illustrated with photographs and full of anecdotes, history, gardening advice and recipes, this book is about everyone who is a gardener, whether in fact or imagination. These and many more garden-inspired books are available at your public library. A Good Read is a column by Tri-City librarians that is published every Wednesday. Barbara Buxton is head of adult services at Port Moody Public Library.

My name is Lisa Porcellato and I received treatment on my right knee. I am a fitness instructor and I instruct several types of classes per week and I jog a couple of times per week as well. I was experiencing sharp pain directly under my knee cap. I came in for 5 treatments and after 3 I noticed a huge improvement. I am now resuming all of my fitness activities and my knee feels great. I have recommended laser light therapy to several people.

Lisa Porcellato

Knee Pain After several weeks of suffering I thought I had nothing to lose by giving laser treatment a try. After only 6 treatments I could walk again (short distances) and following the full course of treatments (14) my knee was back to 90% of where it was before I over-exerted the knee. I am now driving without pain and can walk a couple of miles without problem. I would thoroughly recommend anyone with knee pain consider a course of laser treatment.

Gerry O’Hara

Back Pain I hurt my back less than a year ago. I had unbearable pain the first six weeks anytime I moved. I was in constant pain that happened in any position I was in. My doctor recommended this treatment and within one session I noticed a difference. It took only 8 sessions and the pain was completely gone! Now we are starting on my neck!

Azimyth is, from left to right, Rory Chudley (bass guitar) of Port Moody; Andy Laissue (guitar) of Seattle; Corey Allan Hawkins (vocals, guitar) of Port Coquitlam; and Arlen Chudley (drums) of Port Moody. They released their self-titled CD last month to rave reviews in Vancouver. PHOTO SUBMITTED

Musician rises from the ashes By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

P

ort Coquitlam’s Corey Hawkins is on a high, tending microphone and rhythm guitar with his Tri-City-founded rock band, Azimyth, whose newly released debut album by the same name is electrifying listeners from the Vancouver club scene to as far away as China. Hawkins has come a long way given that, two years ago, his life couldn’t have gotten much lower. Now a 28-year-old Riverside secondary graduate, Hawkins watched as a stormy economy drained his private brewing business. It left him $74,000 in debt and having to unload a lot of his personal possessions to offset his burden, including his car. “I was as depressed as you could be,”

Hawkins told The Tri-City Newss in a recent telephone interview. “You can basically do one of two things at that point:. Do something rash, or push on and keep going. I chose the latter.” Wise move. After rejoining Port Moody brothers Arlen Chudley (drums) and Rory Chudley (bass) following a one-year hiatus the group took after having been together since high school, Hawkins drew up a blueprint for a studio album. The next year, Azimyth flew to Chicago — along with its new lead guitarist from Seattle, Andy Laissue — to record with Nirvana engineer Steve Albini and polish it with Tom Baker of Nine Inch Nails’ fame. For Azimyth, the rest is, well, not history but perhaps the beginning of it. From being voted into the Top 20 on the prestigious The Fox 99.3 FM Vancouver

Seeds 2011 fan’s choice list to a Beijing radio station playing Azimyth’s Save Mee on its airwaves, the band has never been so hyped, so tight, so ecstatic. “I’ve never seen Arlen and Rory so happy,” said Hawkins, sounding like a proud big brother. “Steve has fit in so well, too. He’s just amazing. I didn’t think in a million years we’d get [the Seeds recognition]. “It says a lot about what people want in Vancouver — good honest rock n’ roll,” he said. The name Azimyth was simple mistake during a conversation. While driving through Vancouver’s swanky Shaughnessy district with an ex-girlfriend, she misunderstood Hawkins and his off-the-cuff idea for a band label. She said, “‘As a Myth?’ I like it.” At first Hawkins chuckled, then thought about it a bit more. Then a lot more. “We took the name, played around with the let-

ters a while and came up with Azimyth,” he said. And so they were sold on the name. Now they had to sell people on their music. Last month, Azimyth’s debut album was released to an exuberant sold-out crowd at the Granville Street bar Joe’s Apartment and, according to the band’s website “set a venue record for merchandise sales and brought the band into a new creative era.” Said Jonathan Fluevog, owner of PoCo’s Vogville Recording, in a news release: “Azimyth delivers and distinct and energetic sound. I am impressed by their dedication and professionalism and look forward to collaborating with them again in the future.” A future that now, indeed, looks extremely bright. lpruner@tricitynews.com

Gotta sing! Gotta dance! Gotta teach! (to pay bills) This summer, in a series called Bright Young Things, The Tri-City News will feature students who have spent hours outside of the classroom to study the arts and who plan to hone their creative skills after graduation to advance their careers.

By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

When it came to picking a school to study musical theatre this fall, Fiona McIntyre narrowed her picks to eight. And all but one were in the United States. This past winter, the Grade 12 Heritage Woods secondary student hopped on a plane

— twice — with her mom to audition, tour the campuses, speak with faculty and review their programs. She wanted a good fit, a school that not only provided a comfortable environment thousands of kilometres away from home but also supplied a well-rounded education for her future years. So when five out of eight schools gave her the green light, McIntyre was a little taken back. “I didn’t expect to get multiple offers,” she said. “I was just happy to get into one.” With letters from Oklahoma City University, Randolph Academy, Wright State University, Pace University and Montclair State University, she settled on the latter, a public institution in Montclair, New Jersey,

that saw 560 candidates but accepted only 21 students for its 2011 freshman year. What sealed the deal, McIntyre said, was that, unlike at a conservatory, Montclair had a bachelor’s of fine arts degree available. The $9,000-a-year academic scholarship for four years was the cherry on top, especially since it’s the highest award Montclair gives to international students. Obtaining a BFA is important to McIntyre because while performing “is what I love and this is what I’m passionate about, I’m also passionate about teaching and sharing what JENNIFER GAUTHIER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Italian tune leads to new â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ethno-Rootsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sound for Gurr By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Babe Gurrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most recent album is a quick detour from her regular acoustic Roots sound. She thinks. T h e Va n c o u v e r based singer/songwriter, who performs on Saturday in the last show of the Music on the Grill summer series at Coquitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Everg reen Cultural Centre, is known for her soulful melodies and lovely instrumentation, similar to Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; music. But SideDish presents a new twist for Gurrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s audience, a genre that she dubs â&#x20AC;&#x153;world-beat fusionâ&#x20AC;? or, more interestingly, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ethno-Roots.â&#x20AC;? And the departure into the realm is one that, so far, has won her rave reviews. The diversion began a couple of years back when she searched online for an Italian song to play. Gur r loves the European country â&#x20AC;&#x201D; having travelled to it many times â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and studies the language, and she decided it was time to spice up her repertoire. At a folk festival last year, as part of her regular set, Gurr threw in Colpa di Coda a for fun and â&#x20AC;&#x153;people were com-

Locarno is the Latin project of Juno award-winning musician and Paperboys frontman, Tom Landa. The music, like him, is part Mexican but with strong doses of Cuban song, folk music, pop and funk. ing up to the CD table afterwards, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Where can I get that Italian song?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? she remembered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Umm, this is interesting. Maybe, I should record it.â&#x20AC;? That she did â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and another Italian tune â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but she also wanted to incorporate a Spanish g u i t a r â&#x20AC;&#x153; a n d p re t t y soon, I had this whole side project going, so I thought I would go off my path for a bit and do this Latin world beatbased music,â&#x20AC;? she said. But Gurr has always evolved as an artist. At the start of her career, she was in cover bands, a jazz trio and a Celtic group, to name

a few. About a decade in, she switched gears again, enrolling in the Vancouver Community College jazz commercial program, and she star ted to pen jazz songs. Soon, she figured out, they were â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little too heady for the general nightclub scene... so I wrote more simple and found the connection,â&#x20AC;? Gurr said. After a while, the acoustic Roots mix sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known for today solidified and she garnered a following.

As for her next project, Gurr already has her sights set on more Ethno-Roots music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some ideas kicking around, which is crazy because I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even released SideDish yet,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But who knows?

I’ve learned. The BFA will enable that... because musical theatre isn’t always stable work,” she said. In fact, McIntyre is so committed to teaching that, before she was hired at Lindbjerg Academy of Performing Arts in Coquitlam this year, she was a volunteer instructor for four years at the school where she has trained since she was six. So, when she was tapped to teach her Heritage Woods peers the steps for their spring production of All Shook Up, she was ready. Instructing fellow students “is a tough thing to do,” she admitted, “because I had to balance giving them direction but being their friends after, too.” During the process, she thought of advice her mentors (Lindbjerg’s Melissa Assalone and Chad Matchette, and Royal City Musical Theatre (RCMT) and Arts Club Theatre choreographer Valerie Easton) gave her when showing a routine: be professional, be inspiring and, most of all, be supportive. The result? All Shook Up broke records for ticket sales and was deemed a success for director Shanda Walters, its cast and, of course, McIntyre. But McIntyre was on her toes for all of Grade 12, carrying a double course load and earning a honour roll entry to boot. She started in September playing Lucy in Awkward Stage Productions’ 13 The Musicall at the Vancouver Fringe Festival (the show won the Pick of the Fringe nod). In December, she portrayed Duffy in Gateway Theatre’s Anniee and, later, she appeared in a short film as the lead actor. Last month, the Association of BC Drama Educators’ recognized her achievements and awarded her with a drama scholarship. It also named McIntyre the top graduating performing arts student, top graduating vocal jazz student and outstanding guitar student. Heavy workloads don’t bog her down, she said; rather, she thrives on them. “I don’t find myself super-stressed out because I don’t see it as pressure,” she said. “I see it as high expectations for myself and, if I surpass them, then all the better.” jwarren@tricitynews.com

Olson, A’s now on fire By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS

JENNIFER GAUTHIER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Coquitlam Adanacs goalie Dale Anthony keeps his eyes on the ball during Sunday’s bronze-medal battle versus Burnaby at the B.C. Midget provincial lacrosse championships at Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex.

Just when the Coquitlam Adanacs appeared headed for the cliff, they spun around and cruised smack back into the Western Lacrosse Association playoff hunt. Right now, Kevin Olson is the driver. A trade-deadline acquisition earlier this month that saw holdout goalie Chris Levis set sail for Victoria, Olson peppered in four goals – giving him 11 in his last three outings –– as the A’s prevailed 10-9 in overtime over the Nanaimo Timbermen in a crucial contest Saturday at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex. The result moved the lastplace A’s within two points of the fourth and final playoff spot in the cramped seventeam loop, with two games remaining –– a home-and-home series with the third-place Thunder starting tonight (Wednesday) in Langley. The A’s regular-season finale goes Saturday in Coquitlam, 7 p.m. The win was the A’s second straight after suffering through seven defeats in a row. On Thursday, they ended their losing slide by chopping down the first-place New Westminster Salmonbellies 9-5 at Queen’s Park Arena. “They all count now,” Adanacs general manager Les Wingrove told The TriCity News on Tuesday. “ E v e r y b o d y ’ s h u n g r y. Nobody’s going to roll over and die.” Against the T-men, he

Flag football’s Falcons rule Canada Coquitlam Falcons flew to the top of the country Monday. The B.C. representatives captured the gold medal at the flag football 2011 Canadian national championships in the male under-16 division after posting a 48-12 victory over Team Alberta at Dalhousie University in Halifax.

Serving the Community for 26 years.

The U-16 Falcons finished the tournament undefeated, posting an overall record of 6-0 while out-scoring their opponents 269-43. The U-16 Falcons were led by coaches Paul Lancaster, Eddie Ferg and Steve Marshall, along with team manager Jayne Ogundehinde. The

Falcons players included Chase Malcolm, Malcolm Lee, Tristan Sands, K.J. Johnson, Kevin Marshall, Jalen Jana and Shane Noel. The U-16 Falcons were the second team representing B.C. to capture a national medal in the sport of football this summer following Team BC’s

bronze-medal performance at the 2011 Football Canada Cup held in Lethbridge, Alta., featuring three Terry Fox Raven players plus head coach Tom Kudaba. B.C. was also represented at the flag nationals in the male under-18 division by Vancouver’s Westside Packers.

A’s led 3-2 after the first period but trailed 6-5 after the second. The A’s led 8-7 until the T-men’s Joel Henry tallied with six minutes left to knot the count and eventually force overtime. There, Olson scored 20 ticks apart in the opening two minutes of the 10-minute frame before Nanaimo’s Cayle Ratcliff narrowed the margin to one and closed out the scoring with 2:29 to play. After Olson, Jason Jones was next on the A’s scoring list with two markers. Coquitlam singles went to Tim Campeau, Dane Dobbie, Robbie Campbell and Cory Conway, who also collected four assists. Against the ‘Bellies, Olson bagged the first two goals for the A’s –– finishing with three in the game –– as Coquitlam raced to period leads of 4-2 and 9-3. Other A’s to net two tallies apiece were the Coquitlam native Campeau and Conway, who added four helpers. Daryl Veltman Jon Harnett and Dobbie also struck net for the winners. Two former PoCo Jr. ‘A’ Saints, Kyle Ross and Martin Cummings, were among the few New West goal-getters. Nick Rose was outstanding in the A’s cage, making 43 saves as the ‘Bellies out-shot Coquitlam by a 48-36 count, including 22-4 in the third period. The A’s wrap up the regular campaign with a homeand-home series versus the third-place Langley Thunder, including the finale in Coquitlam July 30.

’Caps’ Leroux nets award Former Coquitlam youth soccer standout Sydney Leroux of the Vancouver FC Whitecaps has been named to the W-League All-Western Conference Team, it was announced Monday. A UCLA Bruins player in the NCAA Div. 1 university ranks, Leroux finished tied for second in W-League regular-season scoring with 11 goals and 24 points in 11 appearances.

Nikhil Prakash of the Coquitlam Senior Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lunges back to first base as Lower Fraser Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Henry Hoogwater applies the tag Sunday.

Canada and coach Chambers on a roll in jr. womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoops Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national team showed no signs of rust after a day off as they handled Russia 66-50 in their opening game of the second round at the 2011 FIBA Under-19 world basketball championships in Puerto Montt, Chile to move to 4-0. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played great in the first half â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; almost flawless,â&#x20AC;? said Canada head coach Rich Chambers of Terry Fox secondary school. Canada employed dogged defence, holding Russia to 38%(19/50) shooting from the field. Although the Canadians

also shot 38% (23-61), their 40-28 rebounding advantage allowed them 11 more shots than their opponents. Canada also forced 23 Russian turnovers, stealing the ball 19 times. The offensive leader continues to be Quebecâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nirra Fields, who scored a game-high 22 points. Edmontonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Michelle Plouffe added 17. With the win, this summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edition now holds the best record for any Canadian team at this point of any agegroup at the FIBA world championships ever. Chambers knew that there were some lapses for his team during the

game, and will ensure he will prepare appropriately for the next game against Japan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Russia played harder and better than us in the third [quarter],â&#x20AC;? Chambers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We stayed in half-court man [defence] too long... Russia is good team and we knew theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hit some shots. But we have confidence in all our players as we move onto the next game.â&#x20AC;? Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next opponent will be Japan, whom they beat earlier at the Tor neio Internacional in Brazil as a tune-up to the worlds.

were ineligible due to total games played. Still, the Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rallied Sunday for a 4-2 victory to force a third and deciding game after, when they trailed 5-2 and bounced back to force three extra innings, only to fall 9-7 in the end. The result advanced Lower Fraser Valley to the national finals next month in Quebec. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The boys played tremendous...

SALVADOR, Brian. Words cannot adequately express our profound sadness as we announce the passing of a most wonderful man, Brian Salvador, who on July 20 lost his courageous battle with AML (leukemia) at VGH. Left to grieve is the love of his life, Judy (nee Ordog), wife of 29 years, daugher Ashley and son Kevin. Sharing in this grief is a large extended family and a very large contingent of loyal, long-term friends. Brian is pre-deceased by his parents Rose and Elidio Salvador, and recently a very special aunt and uncle, Betty Salvador ad George Oliver. Brian grew up in Creston, BC and graduated from UBC in Vancouver, class of 1971, B.Comm. He began his career at Bank of Montreal and through his career moved through various positions at Vancity, HSBC and Telus. Brian exemplified the human part of human resources. He was warm, kind, funny, intelligent, had integrity and a strong work ethic. He was a gentleman in every sense of the word. In 2001, Brian opened his own business, Foot Solutions, in Port Coquitlam and for almost 10 years built its success through his innate caring and compassion for his customers. Above all, Brian was a family man. He was an amazing father and husband. We love you with all our hearts, and will miss you forever. Ashley is running a marathon to honour her dad and to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, please consider donating by going to http://doiop.com/briansalvador
