Bad news, good news for transit TransLink can’t expand to keep pace with soaring ridership without more funding By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS
JAMES MACLENNAN/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
TransLink is on track for a record year of transit ridership, surpassing even the number of passengers carried in 2010, when the region hosted the Olympics. But the high usage numbers are being tempered with a caution that the transportation authority is near the limit of what it can offer riders and needs a big and controversial package of upgrades if it’s to expand service and keep pace with rising demand. The 114.4 million transit trips in the first six months of the year are 4% more than in 2010. And if the April-to-June period is compared — to exclude the Olympic surge — ridership was up 13% in the second quarter. Officials warn the gains are not sustainable if the public and regional politicians refuse to accept some combination of higher taxes and fees to finance expansion.
Thousands of car enthusiasts and summer strollers took advantage of a hot day to flood the streets of downtown Port Coquitlam for the seventh annual PoCo Business Improvement Association Car Show. The event showcased more than 200 classic cars. For more photos, see page 13.

Local politicians mourn NDP leader Layton
“He was full of energy and full of fun.” Dawn Black
By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
The last time Dawn Black saw her former boss in person was at the federal NDP convention in June, a gathering in Vancouver to mark the party’s 50th year. Jack Layton had asked his ex-defence critic and the former New Westminster-Coquitlam MP to toast Ed Broadbent on stage and Black
said she was more than happy to oblige. The pair had dinner during the convention “and if you could’ve seen him, there was no clue that he was about to face death,” she said yesterday. “He was full of energy and full of fun.” Layton, the NDP leader whom Black described as “eternally optimistic,” who was responsible for the so-called Orange Crush that wiped out most of the Liberal seats dur-
ing the federal election earlier this year and who saw his party rise to official opposition status, died of cancer at his Toronto home on Monday. He was 61. NDP MP Fin Donnelly, who replaced Black, said Layton played a major role in getting him to jump into national politics. The two shared many things, he said. see MOORE REMEMBERS REMEMBERS,, page 3

Moore remembers a ‘kind, decent’ man continued from front page
Both served on city council (Layton in Toronto, Donnelly in Coquitlam), both enjoyed swimming and both had a passion for the environment. Layton appointed Donnelly his fisheries and oceans critic shortly after he won the byelection in the New West-Coquitlam riding in 2009. The loss of Layton “is huge for Canada,” Donnelly said from Quebec, a few hours after receiving the news via email from the party’s chief of staff. “He was a great political hero and his potential was yet to come. He was heading to be the next prime minister.” Port Moody-WestwoodPor t Coquitlam MP James Moore, a Conservative, was unavailable for comment but in a statement, the minister of Canadian heritage and official lan-

Teacher talks begin with arbitration Teacher contract talks were to resume Tuesday
MORE ON JOB ACTION Could planned job action by public school teachers have an effect on Tri-City schools, especially the youngest students? See article on page 4
By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS
VICTORIA – A tangle of technical issues is being sorted through by the BC Labour Relations Board this week as public school teachers and their employers prepare for another disputed school year. The BC Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) applied to the labour board for a ruling expected by Friday on the scope of province-wide bargaining issues. The employer association says the BC Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) has failed to present a full set of proposals at the provincial table. “The BCTF continues to attempt to negotiate provincial matters and matters that may not be bargained at this time
Serving the Community for
Education Minister George Abbott set a friendly tone by joining union president Susan Lambert at the BCTF convention in Victoria in March [including class size, class composition and staffing ratios] at local tables,” BCPSEA said in a bargaining bulletin. In June, teachers voted 90% in favour of a strike mandate. In July, BCTF negotiators ta-
bled demands including wage parity with other provinces, doubled bereavement leave to provide 10 days paid leave on the death of a friend or relative, increased preparation time and a retirement bonus that

would give departing teachers an extra 5% payout for each year worked. BCPSEA says the pay demand would mean a 21% raise for some teachers to match Alberta rates. It cal-
culates that the entire package of demands would cost an extra $2.2 billion. T he B.C. gover nment has settled contracts with a majority its unionized staff this year, working within a “net zero” budget mandate. Education Minister George Abbott has repeatedly indicated the same mandate applies to teacher talks, with any extra costs offset by savings in other contract areas. BCTF president Susan Lambert says without a negotiated settlement by the time school begins Sept. 6, teachers will start phase one of strike action by
refusing all non-essential duties. The relationship between the two sides is reflected in an LRB arbitration handed down Aug. 5. The BCTF accepts that taking attendance is an essential service but tried to refuse to send attendance infor mation to the school office. The LRB refused the request for a second time. The board decided that both monitoring attendance and sending in the results represent a safety issue, and ruled that teachers can’t refuse it and force a management person to collect the data. email@example.com

Storage one Evergreen Line issue for cyclists By Todd Coyne THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Details are out about the cycling amenities planned for the Evergreen Line and a Tri-City bike advocacy group says cyclists will be under-served when the transit line opens. Jack Trumley, spokesperson for the Tri-Cities branch of the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition (VACC), said the 10 bike lockers and 10 bike rack slots at each of the five Evergreen stations will reach their useful capacity immediately, leaving cyclists little recourse but to either leave their bikes at home or avoid the train. â€œThe biggest issue is around storage,â€? Trumley said. â€œItâ€™s not enough, especially around the Douglas College stop, where they havenâ€™t anticipated the kind of popularity theyâ€™re going to have there.â€? Trumley said the other problem VACC has with the line is the two-bikes-per-car maximum allowance and the restriction of bikes from trains during the peak hours of the morning and evening commutes. â€œItâ€™s going to reach that capacity immediately, just like the Canada Line,â€? he said. â€œThey just havenâ€™t anticipated the popularity of the Evergreen Line.â€? Still, Trumley stressed the TriCity VACC group fully supports the arrival of the Evergreen Line

there would be room built into the system to expand Evergreenâ€™s bike facilities should it prove necessary but Trumley is skeptical. â€œIâ€™m not confident in that at all,â€? he said. â€œI really think the popularity will exceed their expectations and theyâ€™ll be left scrambling to see what else they can put in here.â€?

Mosquito Control & the West Nile Virus
Port Moody police are looking for the victim of a possible pelletgun shooting in the city last Friday evening. At approximately 5:50 p.m. Aug. 19, police received a call from a driver who saw a man in a green Saturn point and possibly shoot a firearm at a pedestrian on a sidewalk. Port Moody Police spokesperson Const. Bill Kim said the m o t o r i s t s aw the victim flinch but couldn’t say whether the victim was hit with anything or was simply startled at seeing the weapon pointed at them. The driver followed the Saturn until police arrived and pulled it over at the intersection of Ioco Road and Newpor t Drive. Officers searched the vehicle and found a pellet gun closely resembling a real semi-automatic pistol. “You look at it and it looks like a real gun,” Kim said. “I don’t know what it is with manufacturers these days trying to make these guns that look like real guns. It just doesn’t make any sense.” Police arrested the passenger of the vehicle for possession of a weapon for a dangerous pur pose and for consumption of alcohol by a minor. Police were unable to locate the possible victim but are calling on that person to come forward now by calling 604-461-3456.
PMPD looks for ‘victim’
Almost one year since a horrific car crash in Belcarra killed 16-yearold passenger Melissa Tomac, the Bur naby teen’s parents say they are still anxiously awaiting the driver’s day in court. Christopher Baires, 19, faces nine charges, including impaired and dangerous driving causing death and causing an accident resulting in bodily harm. The charges stem from the evening of Sept. 2, 2010, when Baires was driving with Tomac and two other friends after a day at Sasamat Lake’s White Pine Beach. The four teens tried to overtake another car on a blind corner of Bedwell Bay Road when the driver
Mario Tomac, told The Tri-City News outside the Port Coquitlam courthouse Tuesday. “Then I got a phone call at 7:30 saying I had to go to Royal Columbian, that it was a real emergency. “I always thought it was kids who were supposed to bury their parents.” Mario Tomac was j o i n e d T u e s d ay by M e l i s s a ’ s m o t h e r, Dinah, and sister-in-law, Heather, for the family’s sixth appearance in PoCo court awaiting the start of Baires’ trial. Baires was charged with the nine offences in June. A date to begin the trail was to be set on Tuesday but Baires’ lawyer, Kevin Westell, asked that the matter be pushed back while the defence continues to prepare its case. The judge agreed to set a date of Sept. 14 for Baires’ arraignment hearing. firstname.lastname@example.org

The cities of the Northeast Sector have been taking steps to prepare for and respond to concerns related to Mosquito Control and West Nile Virus including applying by hand, registered biological larvicides when West Nile Virus vector mosquitoes are present in surface waters and catch basins. West Nile Virus is a mosquito-born illness that is spread when a mosquito bites both an infected bird and people. The virus is found in less that 1% of all mosquitoes. Based on the larviciding recommendations provided by the Fraser Health Authority, the West Nile Virus Mosquito Control Program will conclude on August 26th. However, the control of nuisance mosquitoes will continue through to the fall. The mosquito season lasts until the ﬁrst hard frost in late September/October. To report a dead bird call 1-888-968-5463. To report standing/stagnant water or want more information on mosquitoes, please call the Vector Control Department at 604-927-5447.

the rescue helicopter grounded until Tuesday afternoon, leaving rescuers in the dark about whether the men were injured, stuck or simply lost and waiting for help. “It’s almost impossible to set off one of these beacons accidentally,” Yochim told The News before the hikers had been located. “There’s a whole sequence you have to go through to trigger it, so the fact that they have triggered it brings us some concern and that’s why we’re trying so hard to get in there.” The young men had set of f hiking from Squamish to Coquitlam along the Fools Gold Trail several days ago and, despite being physically fit and experienced hikers, they did not bring a tent with them, Yochim said. Two teams of five rescuers in all set out on foot Tuesday morning to try to reach the men, whose beacon was signalling from an area
By Todd Coyne THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Several Coquitlam Search and Rescue teams were busy Tuesday locating three hikers believed to be from the Tri-Cities who activated an emergency beacon one day earlier in the wilds north of Pitt Lake. The three men in their 20s were found unhar med and were rescued just after 1 p.m. by Coquitlam SAR personnel descending from a helicopter to the area north of Pitt Lake. “The weather finally broke for us and we could long-line our rescuers in,” Coquitlam SAR spokesperson Dwight Yochim told The Tri-City News minutes after the rescue. “It looks like as soon as they heard our helicopter coming, they set off smoke and stayed where the beacon alert was.” Yochim said the men’s distress signal was detected Monday morning but low cloud cover kept
northwest of DeBeck Creek on the north side of Pitt Lake, leading rescuers to believe the hikers were stuck on some cliffs about 400 m above an old logging road that serves as the trail. “When you come into that area, the natural tendency is to stay to the north because it’s easier walking but you quickly get rocked out without knowing it, and I believe that may have happened to these guys,” Yochim said, adding that rescuers would later bring the hikers to their command post for a full interview to determine what went wrong. On Monday, a rescue helicopter took off for the area of the beacon’s signal but low cloud cover grounded it before it could enter the area. By early Tuesday afternoon, the helicopter was still awaiting clearance above Pitt Lake as clouds continued to roll in and stack up against the mountains.

Coquitlam RCMP are asking for the public’s help in identifying a repeat shoplifter who recently robbed a pharmacy of hundreds of dollars in cosmetics before returning and stealing m o r e while t h e store owner SUSPECT was on the phone with police. On April 22, a man stole a large amount of make-up from the Shoppers Drug Mart at Burquitlam Plaza, Coquitlam Mounties reported Monday. The store’s owner called to report the theft and was still on the phone with police when the man returned, brazenly ripping off more cosmetics and leaving before police arrived. In all, approximately $600 in cosmetics were taken and the suspect remains at large. Employees at the store told police they had seen the man shoplifting there in the past. The suspect is described as a Caucasian man in his 30s with an average build. His image was captured by security cameras in the store. Anyone with information relating to this theft is asked to call the Coquitlam RCMP non-emergency line at 604-945-1550 or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222TIPS (8477) or online at solvecrime.ca.

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside
he sleeves of his crisp, white shirt rolled up, Jack Layton’s pit stop in Port Moody on the 2004 campaign trail was like the man himself: short, energetic and focused. Telling reporters it was time for a change in the thenLiberal government, Layton enumerated several Tri-City issues and offered solutions for them all: a greater share of the gas tax, more public transit, and affordable housing to prevent homelessness. Issues still relevant today. Even then, before his trademark cane and vision of hope and optimism propelled his party to an unprecedented role as Official Opposition, it was easy to see that Layton had the right stuff to appeal to Canadians. Layton, who died Monday morning of cancer, wanted Canadians to live up to their potential. That’s not an uncommon vision among politicians. Regardless of what party they represent, Canadian politicians do agree on one thing — they want a better world for their children and grandchildren. Where they differ is in how to achieve this lofty goal. But with Layton it was different. He was a member of the political elite, (his great grand-uncle was a Father of Confederation and his father a Tory cabinet minister in the Brian Mulroney government) and he was also a PhD scholar and a writer, but Canadians didn’t fault him for it. He chose to lead an aging party with flagging fortunes, taking over the NDP when it was at its lowest point in many years. But instead of finishing his years in the political hinterland, as many predicted, he survived and thrived, overcoming both political and physical hardships along the way. Indeed, it was Layton’s public battle against prostate cancer which earned him the respect of many and when he showed up on the campaign trail with a cane and a dogged determination to fight on despite his frailties, even the usually cynical political pundits were forced to take notice. When his campaign bus became a rolling orange wave through Quebec, they were forced to reverse their predictions about Layton’s underdog party. Where his story becomes even more compelling is in its abrupt ending. Although Layton would wish otherwise, there is a sadness in the understanding that death is final. Only in making the most out of each day can the living still hope to make the world a better place.
Plan for exporting B.C. power isn’t quite dead BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA – He would never quite admit it, but former premier Gordon Campbell’s push for self-sufficiency in clean electricity has always looked to me like a long-term strategy to export hydroelectric power. It still looks that way. B.C.’s spring and summer runoff match perfectly with peak air-conditioner season in California. But the recent review of BC Hydro operations discusses how the prospects for exports have changed since Campbell’s 2007 energy plan. The government instructed BC Hydro to wean itself off power imports by 2016, even in drought years, and obtain new capacity mostly from outside sources with net zero greenhouse gas emissions. Nuclear plants were formally ruled out. The review of BC Hydro by three top bureaucrats acknowledges that government di-
rections have “placed pressure on BC Hydro to increase their energy supply through increased long-term agreements with independent power producers (IPPs).” Cue the doomsayers. Independent power production is enemy number one for BC Hydro unions. Their champion, NDP energy critic John Horgan, was immediately out with a grossly distorted version of the report. He cherry-picked statistics to compare the $124-per-megawatt hour average cost for delivering independent power with the lowest end of the spot market for electricity, which currently swings wildly from around $4 to more than $50. In fact the report puts the average price paid for IPP power at $63.85. Compare that with the projected cost of $87 to $95 for power from Site C, the proposed third dam on the Peace River that will be BC Hydro owned and operated. The $124 figure includes other costs, notably extending the electricity grid to connect IPPs. Horgan claims to favour wind or runof-river for remote areas with no other clean

energy option, but apparently is against hooking them up to the grid. (Further evidence that current NDP energy policy is nonsense: Horgan opposes Site C based on an assumption of little or no growth in mines, mills or other industries such as liquefied natural gas, which an NDP government would be a good bet to deliver. He’s against smart meters for the same reason he’s against the HST — because it looks like a popular pose right now.) When it comes to electricity exports, the important point is not what power sells for today, but what it will be worth a decade from now. And that depends on whether clean energy can command a premium price, and whether coal and other fossil fuel sources have a carbon price imposed on them. Conventional wisdom right now is that carbon taxes and cap and trade programs are, if not dead, at least dormant in North America. Climate change has fallen off the front page as the U.S. and Europe grapple with economic troubles.
So I was surprised to find that this month Powerex, BC Hydro’s electricity trading company, wrote to the California Air Resources Board asking for clarification of the state’s proposed changes to its greenhouse gas reporting and cap and trade rules. California wants to prevent suppliers from engaging in “resource shuffling,” where a supplier such as B.C. might import coal power from Alberta for its own use, while selling supposedly clean power for export. Considering that restriction, B.C.’s selfsufficiency rule starts to make more sense. If B.C. is not importing power, its supply must be clean. Also, a meta-analysis on climate effects came out last week in the journal Science, detailing world-wide species migration due to warming. Clean energy sales to California are a long way off, but it would be a mistake to reject the possibility. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press.

Lib lauds Layton as a ‘champion’ The Editor, It was with great regret that I learned today of the passing of the Hon. Jack Layton, MP, leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada, and leader of Canada’s official opposition. The fall of a great champion is always due a poignant sadness. Jack was indeed a great champion, and a fierce and feisty competitor always to be reckoned with. Succumbing to a major illness so soon after waging a vigourous national election with such dramatic success now brings that battle into focus in an even more gallant, heroic and Herculean light. Well done, Jack, for this and, indeed, for your many contributions
throughout your life. On my own behalf and on behalf of our membership, I offer my condolences to Jack’s family, friends and followers. The rich tapJACK LAYTON estry of Canadian political discourse is diminished today. Jack has left big shoes to fill and his passing is a loss to all Canadians. Ron McKinnon, President, Port Moody–Westwood–Port Coquitlam Federal Liberal Association
Volunteers do plenty The Editor, I wanted to extend a sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of the dedicated volunteers of the Tri-Cities. Without them, our own organization would have no Noons Creek Hatchery operating seven days a week and no annual Fingerling Festival.
Beyond our society, we would not have many of the great resources such as Share and Community Volunteer Connections, various events, essential services and emergency services that we are privileged to have here. Sandra Niven, President, Port Moody Ecological Society
Three bear cubs orphaned when their mother was shot in Anmore earlier this month are now being cared for at an animal rescue facility in Langley.
Other options for bears The Editor, Unfortunately, a man was sent to the hospital earlier this month when a mother black bear, acting on instinct, attacked. The man left the hospital with minor injuries while the mother bear was shot and killed as its three cubs watched from the tree tops. It was found that the mama bear had been previously relocated and had returned, probably in the hopes of finding food. Properly storing your garbage is one way to prevent bear visitors but the question is now, where was that bear relocated? Was it far enough away from human contact and in a
habitat that best suited its needs? These bears need to be protected before they become extinct. This bear and others like it should be relocated when they are first seen in public rather than shot while attacking on instinct. Relocations should be monitored in order to ensure the bears not wander back into communities. There are other options for these animals. If more instances occur involving bears and humans, each one needs to be evaluated by more than one person as separate instances and dealt with after finding the best solution for everyone and every bear. Jacquelyn Holmes, Coquitlam
The Editor, I have been happily living in Port Moody for 44 years. Recently, I was instructed to cut my long grass due to one neighbour’s complaint. When another n e i g h b o u r h e a rd this, he immediately insisted on helping me and spent most of the day cutting my grass while his wife helped rake and bundle it. I am most grateful to Dan and Lori Peacock for their kind and sincere effort to help me. They are truly Good Samaritans. As for the neighbour who complained, I only have one comment: If you are so unhappy that you must pick on a senior citizen who is trying her best, come on over and help me out. I need all the help I can get. You might feel better. Helen McCracken, Port Moody

High school scholarship rules have changed B.C.’s high school grads were leaving millions in scholarship money on the table by not writing optional final exams, so the education ministry has changed the system to make sure the aid gets to students who do well
on mandatory tests. Optional scholarship exams for Grade 12 have been dropped for this school year, after post-secondary institutions changed their admission criteria and no longer use Grade 12 optional tests.
P rov i n c i a l s ch o l arships will now be awarded to students based on the required provincial exams in place for Grades 10, 11 and 12. The exam system was changed in 2004 to reflect the different post-secondary path-
ways students can take. Once those tests were not counted for postsecondary admission, only one in five Grade 12 students chose to write optional scholarship exams. Provincial scholarships are typically $1,000, with the

“I’m very concerned that we’re seeing this substantial rise in demand by more people for more transit at a time when TransLink has no ability to meaningfully increase capacity,” TransLink CEO Ian Jarvis said. Spokesperson Ken Hardie said TransLink has been “optimizing” bus service by selectively trimming service on routes or at times where buses are underused and adding it where buses are crowded or more passengers can be attracted. That will continue to deliver minor efficiency gains, he said. “But the real large service increases are just not going to happen,” Hardie said. “We will not have the capacity to do that.” Area mayors are
being asked to approve a $70-million-a-year increase in revenue — through a two-cent gas tax hike and other yetto-be-determined mechanisms. That would fund the $700-million Moving Forward package of p ro p o s e d u p g r a d e s over 10 years, including TransLink’s $400-million contribution to the Evergreen Line plus about $300 million in other service increases. The package would increase SeaBus sailings, upgrade SkyTrain stations and provide more money for road work and cycling infrastructure. Conventional bus service hours would rise 7% by 2014 to combat overcrowding and pass-ups and keep up with increasing demand through the expanded U-Pass system. Half of the extra service hours would be ear-

Thousands of people flooded downtown Port Coquitlam on Sunday for the annual PoCo Business Improvement Association Car Show. Among those was (above) John Gauti of Coquitlam, seen looking under the hood of a 1966 Chevelle SS396. Among the entertainment was Elvis Presley impersonator Darren Lee (right).

AROUND & ABOUT: Things to do this summer in White Rock
BLACK PRESS PHOTOS
A day trip to White Rock can feature stops for ice cream or a nice meal but among the biggest attractions are the area’s beaches and water, and, of course, the 1,500-foot-long pier.
White Rock: Life’s a beach Around & About is an occasional Black Press summer feature offering tips for Tri-City residents wishing to travel outside their communities for day trips.
WALK DOWN MEMORY LANE While the village of Crescent Beach was sparsely inhabited until the completion in 1909 of the Great Northern Railway, which connected the seaside community to the rest of Surrey, humans have inhabited the fragile, sandy spit for more than 5,000 years. The Coast Salish, Semiahmoo and Kwantlen first nations settled in Crescent Beach in the summer months, focusing their efforts on hunting and fishing. To honour the area’s rich history, in 2002, the city of Surrey commissioned a public art program called Memory Stones at Crescent Beach. With 33 stones circling the neighbourhood, the history, memories, dreams and stories of the Crescent Beach community past and present are distilled through poetic phrases, symbols and references. A self-guided walking tour follows the memory stones and their tales through the community, and starts at the “Keystone” at the foot of Beecher Street.
hile the Semiahmoo Peninsula is a friendly, tight-knit community known for diverse merchants, great restaurants and a bustling arts scene, there’s no argument over what has put this area on the map: the beaches. The Peninsula beaches attract visitors from all over the world who enjoy a walk along the scenic promenade, grabbing a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants and cafes or taking a dip in the Pacific Ocean — well-known highlights of this unique seaside community. White Rock Beach, which stretches 8 km just south of Marine Drive, includes a 1,500-foot-long pier and a 2.5 km promenade often bustling with people out for a sunsoaked stroll. At West Beach, home to the famous pier, visitors can find everything from rustic cafes to fine dining, boutique merchants and spas, not to mention live music and art displays. Don’t be surprised to see children diving from the lower level docks of the pier or dangling a fishing line or a trap for crabs, which can be seen on the sea floor through the clear waters. The slightly quieter East Beach, which borders Semiahmoo First Nations Land, is a family favourite and perfect spot for a picnic. When the tide is out, the huge sandy area can be found filled with kite flyers, sandcastle builders and sunbathers. In the height of the summer, East Beach makes a great swimming spot as the hot sands warm
the water when the tide comes in, and is also a popular place for skim boarders to glide along the shoreline. On the west side of the Semiahmoo Peninsula lies south Surrey’s Crescent Beach, slightly quieter than nearby White Rock Beach but equal in charm and beauty. Take a relaxing stroll down the gravelled walkways of Crescent Beach, go for a swim in the warm waters, fly a kite on the sand or just soak up some of the sun.
Beecher Street — known as the Marine Drive of Crescent Beach — boasts trendy bistros, live entertainment, deep wine cellars and artistic flair. The village of Crescent Beach was first settled in 1871 by Walter Blackie, who purchased 150 acres of land for $50 from the Royal Engineers. One of the best bird-watching areas in the country, named Blackie Spit after the early settler, is located just a short walk
north of Crescent Beach. Also in the neighbourhood is Camp Alexandra, which hosts numerous events and services, from recreational activities to support groups. With plenty of free parking and lifeguards on duty in July and August, Crescent Beach is a great place for locals and tourists alike to enjoy the sunny, seaside atmosphere for which the Semiahmoo Peninsula is famous. email@example.com

Book reviews from shut-ins A GOOD READ Teresa Rehman Losing eyesight doesn’t mean you have to give up books
s Community Services Librarian, I am delighted when shut-in patrons, who are visually and often physically challenged, tell me how much they enjoy the books I choose for them. Their small talk on book reviews often leads to engaging conversation about personal experiences and life stories. These discussions make my visits to private homes and care centres both meaningful and pleasurable. And, so it was that the idea of shut-in patron participation in our CPL blog came to me. They dictated the reviews — I took the notes. Patrons welcomed the idea that they would be encouraging others to read what they had enjoyed. When their blogs appeared on our website, patrons were delighted, phoning their family and friends to log on, double click on the chocolate
cake icon, and see their names and reviews online. The following are book reviews that have appeared in Coquitlam Public Library’s blog, “I was told there would be cake.” Tuesdays With Morrie (CD book) – reviewed by patron Bus Gerow (88 years) I began having difficulty reading street signs so I thought I needed a change of glasses. My ophthamologist told me I had a disease called wet macular degeneration, that causes one to slowly lose one’s vision. Today, five years later, I have lost core vision, but still have my peripheral
vision. I can no longer read, drive, do repairs, or even see the value of small coins. A friend told me about audiobooks available at the library. At Coquitlam Public Library’s Poirier branch, I met Teresa, the Community Services Librarian, who explained how the library assists the partially blind. Libraries provide a large number of printed books that have been read onto CDs. They also have a number of portable CD players one can use prior to buying a unit. I have listened to over 20 books. Of these, one stands out so much I listened to it twice because
it is so profound. The title is Tuesdays with Morrie written by Mitch Albom. An old man, a young man and life’s greatest lessons. Everyone should read this book. Robinson Crusoe (CD book) reviewed by patron Bus Gerow I am a member of the audiobooks service of the Coquitlam Public Library. Over the past three weeks, I have been enthralled listening to the trials and joys of Robinson Crusoe picked for me by the Community Services Librarian Teresa. Written by Daniel see LIBRARY,, page 16

Library brings books, CDs to the home-bound continued from page 15
Defoe, this is a story about a young man who refused all parental help and instead went to sea as a sailor. Five years later, he was the sole survivor of a shipwreck on an uncharted island. Here begins an amazing story of survival and growth stretching over some 20 years. A well-presented recording of a classic work. I know you will enjoy the 10 discs. Watership Down (regular print), reviewed by shut-in patron Arline Stockdale (96 years old) This is the second time I read Watership Down by Richard Adams, written in 1972. It is about an imaginary conversation among rabbits; more specifically, it is about the life story of rabbits. The author treats the rabbits as if they are live people and converses with
them about how they live. The rabbits overgrow and overpopulate Watership Down, a fictional place in England. This is a beautiful story, full of humour and there is a human element to it — like rabbits are people. A lot of English people will have heard about this book. It is a very favourable book. Last year, I wanted to get a copy of this book for an eight-year-old boy, but he was too young. Maybe later, when he is older. My son in Toronto found your library and called my friend in Calgary who knew about the library’s shut-in service and called Teresa. This service has added a boon to my life. I just wish I had started earlier to appreciate it more because my reading and my capacity to write are diminishing now. This is a good service and I love it. I am
very grateful. Sacred Ariass by Andrea Bocelli (music CD), reviewed by patron Arline Stockdale Lately, I have been enjoying this Andrea Bocelli CD; it includes him singing “Ave Maria”, the version composed by Bach and Gounod. I have been looking for this recording for a long time. I would like to thank the library, especially the Community Services Librarian Teresa who found this for me very quickly. This is a great recording! There are about six composers of “Ave Maria”, but this one (sung by many others) has been my favourite since I was a teenager. I am now 96 years old and more than thankful that Teresa found it for me. Nobody else was able to do that. Thank you! Winter Garden (CD book), reviewed by shut-in patron
Elizabeth McRobbie I am 90 years and I have been living at the Madison Care Centre in Coquitlam for the past year. I have been getting audio books from CNIB in Toronto, but my daughter registered me with the Audio Book Services with the Coquitlam Public Library. I like reading stories set in Scotland, love stories and especially family stories. The Community Services Librarian, Teresa, brings me audio books, both books on CD and MP3, which I thoroughly enjoy. I have never had this kind of service before. I enjoyed Winter Garden by Hannah Kristen very much. It brought back memories of the time during World War II when I was in Scotland. I remember the siege of Leningrad, but I did not realize to what extent these people were deprived of food
and life’s necessities. The story shows that one of the children died of malnutrition. This book brought home to me what a terrible time that was for these people caught in the middle of war. This was completely a family story. I found the historical facts most interesting. • Please check for these and other titles in audiobook formats at your local libraries. For more information on Coquitlam Public Library’s Outreach Services, please check Home Bound Services, found under Using Your Library on the menu to the left on our homepage. A Good Read is a column by TriCity librarians that is published every Wednesday. Teresa Rehman is the community services librarian at Coquitlam Public Library.

A kitchen with shine This year, kitchens are shinier than ever, with gleaming Ă„nishes and sparkling appliances. Wood, polymers, lacquers, and shiny Ă„nishes are in the spotlight, especially polished reds for cabinets and laminate counters. Ever a popular material for Ă„nishing kitchens, wood is making a special comeback, bringing with it warmth and light and a return to authenticity. Whether uniform or knotted, lacquered or oiled, tropical or local, wood warms the atmosphere of a kitchen

with its soft and silky texture. Its noble character marries well with modern lighting and work surfaces. Wood blends especially well with white, the most luminous shade of all, to create an uncluttered effect. Indeed, white is predominant in clean-lined minimalist decors. It highlights the colours and materials around it and reĂ…ects tones and textures. It enhances accessory colours and lends itself perfectly to contrasts with black, granite, glass, wood, and stainless steel. A mostly white kitchen is a beautiful setting for stainless steel or high-shine coloured appliances. Warm accent colours are in fashion, with red at the top of the list, followed by faded copper, deep apricot, burnt orange, cinnamon, plum, and butter yellow. Shades of aubergine, violet, and mauve are also carving out a place in todayâ€™s kitchen.

“Driving is the perfect opportunity to practice literacy. Read signs, billboards and licence plates together, and show your children the proper way to read a map.”
Practising is as easy as ABC September is all about back-to-school — time to get back into routines, make lunches and go to bed early. And since there’s so much to do and kids are still in summer mode, it’s hard to make sure the family is focusing on learning. Learning together as a family is vital to a child’s future education. Doing family literacy activities not only helps develop children’s reading, writing and math skills, it also provides an opportunity for parents to learn something new too! Children raised in literate households are likely to enter grade one with several thousand hours of oneto-one pre-reading experience behind them. Learning happens in many ways, especially in our day-to-day activities. In honour of September’s Life Literacy Month, ABC Life Literacy Canada offers 10 fun and easy ways to make literacy part of your family’s daily life: • When making your grocery list, have your child write out the items you need to buy. • At the store, ask your child to count out the money to make the purchase.
• Always read a story together at bedtime. • When cooking dinner, involve your children in measuring the ingredients. This helps them understand fractions and measurements. • Driving is the perfect opportunity to practice literacy. Read signs, billboards and licence plates together, and show your children the proper way to read a map.
• While online, make time to research something new that your family is interested in. Researching skills are important and help with reading and comprehension. • In the car, sing along to songs on the radio. Singing encourages learning patterns of words, rhymes and rhythms, and is strongly connected to language skills. • When playing a board
game, read the instructions aloud to each other or count how many spaces to travel around the board. • Involve your kids when you pay bills. This will teach them strong financial skills early on in life. • Children follow by example, so ensure reading is part of your daily life too.

The Alzheimer Society of BC is calling on local residents to take part in British Columbia’s largest Coffee Break on Sept. 15. This do-it-yourself event is part of a nationwide fundraiser that each year raises important funds to support more than 70,000 British Columbians living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Anyone can host a Coffee Break — friends, families or corporations — at home, at work or a public venue by exchanging a cup of coffee for a donation on behalf of the society. This year’s national goal is $1.5 million. “The dementia crisis is now and it’s in our communities,” Jean Blake, CEO for the Alzheimer Society of BC said in a press release. “We still don’t have a cure for the disease but support,
education and information about what to expect on the dementia journey help families to develop the skills and confidence to live well and independently longer. Our programs are increasingly vital. We need community support and funds to keep them active.” Demand for services is steadily climbing as the number of Canadians with dementia surges. An estimated 1.3 million Canadians will be affected by 2038. This number does not take into account thousands of caregivers who already clock a staggering 231 million hours a year in unpaid care. Burgeoning baby
boomers will compound this trend. The risk for dementia doubles every five years after age 65. While Coffee Break officially kicks off Sept. 15, participants can host their event any time for one month after, and they can be simple or elaborate, from organizing corporate challenges to holding trivia nights, to staging events at local coffee shops or shopping centres. For registration, tips and information on how to get started, visit www.alzheimerbc.org/ Get-Involved/CoffeeBreak.aspx. Alzheimer’s disease, the leading form of dementia, is a fatal brain disease that progres-

sively impacts memory, speech and behaviour. Eventually, those affected will become dependent on others for every aspect of their care. The disease can start to develop 10 to 20 years before symptoms appear. Age is still a major risk factor but the disease can also strike people in their 40s and 50s.

A map of Jeff Huggins’ life is plastered on his bedroom wall. The Gleneagle secondary graduate, who leads the Coquitlam-based indie/rock band The Knots, starts his four-year music diploma program at Vancouver Community College next month. JENNIFER GAUTHIER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Great destinations for Huggins This summer, in a series called Bright Young Things, The Tri-City News will feature students who have spent hours in and out 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
n Jeff Huggins’ bedroom wall, a new road map to his future has begun. The 18-year-old Coquitlam musician has four directions guiding his current journey: his band, The Knots, which recently released its debut EP; his busking, a summer job at Granville Island and farmers’ markets; his room renovations, of which he has attached a sketch; and his college plans. Next to the latter, Huggins has proudly pinned a letter of acceptance from Vancouver Community College, where next month he will start a four-year music program.
Huggins applied for VCC’s jazz and contemporary voice diploma after emailing the Vancouver-based band Mother Mother; three of its five members graduated there and recommended he enroll, too. It’ll be a fresh adventure for Huggins, who just graduated from Gleneagle secondary where, for four years, he commuted for two hours a day, to and from the other side of Coquitlam — by city bus — to attend the TALONS program for gifted students. “It was worth it,” he said of the long daily ride. “I loved going to Gleneagle.” Though academically advanced, Huggins has always put his music first. At six, he started with classical piano. In Grade 8, Huggins picked up the guitar and drums, and signed up with the School Alliance of Student Songwriters. The next year, Huggins, his cousin Jonny Schmidt and David Griffiths, a friend since Grade 1, formed the indie/rock band The Knots, a name coined by Schmidt after staring up at Huggins’ wood ceiling.
The Knots’ next shows are on Saturday, Aug. 27 (Leigh Square Community Arts Village, Port Coquitlam, 2 p.m.) and on Sunday, Sept. 18 (Blue Mountain Park, Coquitlam, 10 a.m.). “I think it’s kind of a cool name because this is the place where we all practice,” the lead singer said during an interview at his home last week. So far, their union has been a good one. Last year, while Huggins also studied

choir and vocal jazz as extra-cirriculars, The Knots won a songwriting contest that allowed them to play during the Olympic torch relay in New Westminster. Later that spring, they clinched the title of BC’s Best Teen Band after a five-month contest sponsored by Youthink Magazine and Tom Lee Music. As part of the band’s prize, they worked briefly with Shawn Verrault, the lead singer of Wide Mouth Mason (Verrault was also the associate producer for The Knots new fourtrack EP). Huggins said the EP “is just the first of many things to come for us. Obviously, we’re hoping down the road we can have a fulllength CD.” But even Huggins is unsure when he’ll find the time to write songs for it, given that his schedule will be packed with VCC studies and Knots’ shows. “That’s where the map comes in handy,” he said, pointing to it. “Everything is laid out so I can see where I’m heading.” firstname.lastname@example.org

A Coquitlam-based youth choir came off a music fest this month on a high note after taking first place. The Coastal Sound Youth Choir and director Carrie Tennant clinched the top spot in the National Music Festival, a competition sponsored by the Federation of Canadian Music Festivals for community youth choirs that had qualified after winning their respective provincial contests. It was the first time Coast Sound Youth Choir had entered the contest; it won based on their performance of Josef Gabriel Rheinberger’sAbendlied and a piece dedicated to the mothers of Brazil called Salve Re gina by Lars Jansson and arranged by Gunnar Eriksson. Coastal Sound junior choir director Annette Coffin was presented with the prize at the Grand Award Concert on Aug. 13 in Antigonish, N.S. “These singers have had years of phenomenal vocal and choral training in Coastal Sound,” Tennant said in a news release. “Some singers in this choir have been working through the choir levels for more than 10 years and it shows in their music skills.” Meanwhile, the Coastal Sound Music Academy is accepting new singers (aged four to adult) for its next season, which runs September to June.

Brickhouse to lay the beat By Todd Coyne THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Brickhouse singer Rob Bracken can’t wait to get his “blue funk” band out of the clubs of Vancouver and into some sunshine. If only for an hour or two. S o m e m ay k n o w Brickhouse as the wild workhorse of the downtown club scene, toiling away — but hardly in obscurity — with more than 200 shows a year in the blue bowels of the Yale Hotel and the Fairview Pub. B u t B r i ck h o u s e ’s Summer Concert series show this Sunday at Rocky Point Park in Port Moody will pull the boys away from the late-night club circuit in favour of some fresh air. And they’re not kicking and screaming yet. “It’s such a hoot,” Bracken said, remembering last year’s Rocky Point show. “We have a lot of followers who have kids and it’s a chance for people who have jobs — people who have taken a more serious tack on their lives — to finally get out and see a show because they can’t get out at night anymore.” Despite Brickhouse’s nearly 20-year career (“and we seem to be getting better,” Bracken joked), this band of brothers has only released one fully realized album, Ruby. That’s because their focus has
always been and will remain on the live show though a live acoustic album may soon be in the works. “The live show is where we really shine and get to do our stuff,” Bracken said. “We just
stay in the groove and keep people dancing.” And while Bracken said the band wouldn’t be pulling any punches just because they’re playing at 2 p.m. instead of their usual 2 a.m., parents need not worry
about bringing their kids out to the show. “We won’t be making balloon animals or anything but we’re very inclusive,” he said. “It’s definitely come as you are.” email@example.com

Maria swings in PoCo
Managing Experiences in small, medium and multi-million dollar businesses
• Business Advisory • Accounting & Assurance • Personal & Corporate Tax and Planning • CRA Remittances • Reasonable Rates
By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
It is not uncommon for audience members at a Maria In The Shower concert to feel like they have travelled back in time. That probably has something to do with the fact the band approaches songwriting less like musicians and more like historians, incorporating some sounds and influences that were popular a hundred years ago. The result is a performance steeped in the vaudeville tradition, mixing elements of swing, samba, blues and gypsy soul while providing a backdrop for stories, myths and bible tales. “We are kind of like archeologists digging throughout the history of recordings,” said Jack Garton, who sings, plays trumpet and accordion with the group. “We are always searching back for the sources of a lot of different things and influences.” The old-time influence is added into other aspects of the band’s performance, and audience members are not likely to see Maria In The Shower take the stage wearing jeans and tshirts. Top hats, bow ties and three-piece suits add to the theatrical side of their show, an element Garton said helps draw in the crowd and get their feet moving. “Whether it is our music or what we are wearing on our bodies, if they are all pointing in the same essential direction than we can more easily give a really powerful show to people,” Garton said. “We try and take into consideration all of the things that we

Garton said dancing shoes are a must at Maria In The Shower show, and the band strives to offer its fans a fun performance. The bouncy rhythm section, let by bassist Brendon Hartley and percussonist Todd Biffard is guaranteed make toes tap while Martin Reisle strums a guitar and plays the cello over top. “The main idea is we just try and go our and have fun,” Garton said. “If we are having fun then other people will have fun.” firstname.lastname@example.org

Reece Huntley of the Coquitlam-Moody Reds lets fly from the pitcher’s mound during Sunday’s action in the B.C. Peewee AAA provincial baseball final at Town Centre Park.
Peewee Reds run dry By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Coquitlam-Moody Reds zoomed into Sunday’s final at the B.C. Peewee AAA provincial baseball championships. Then the fuel tank hit empty. The host Reds were stomped 9-2 by Abbotsford and settled for the silver medal at Coquitlam Town Centre Park. “We had a couple injuries so we only had 10 kids the whole weekend,” said Reds head coach Randy Downes. “We got a lot out of the kids we had but we just ran out of gas.” Even had they won, the Reds were ineligible to compete in the Western Canadian championships starting tomorrow (Thursday) in Nanaimo because
they competed last month in the Continental Amateur Baseball Association (CABA) World Series in Sylvania, Ohio. “We wanted to win the provincials because we weren’t going to the Westerns,” Downes said. “It just wasn’t meant to be.” The Reds were 5-0 going into the final, including a 5-2 clubbing of Cloverdale in the semifinals. The Reds opened the tournament with a 5-0 romp over Ridge Meadows, then needed nine innings to shake off Ladner 2-1. They then posted another narrow round-robin win –– 4-3 over Nanaimo –– before bombing Richmond 11-1 to win their pool and move on to the semis versus Cloverdale. “I thought we’d at least get to the semifinals because we
were the favourites in the round robin,” Downes said. “It was nice to beat Cloverdale but Abbotsford was a little tougher.” Despite being under-manned, the Reds only trailed 1-0 through four innings before their arms –– and legs –– began to weaken, leading to the eventual lopsided count. “It’s been a long seven weeks for our guys, with a big trip in between,” Downes said. “I’m proud of the way they performed.” The Reds are hosting their annual Labour Day tournament, which is expected to feature eight teams, Sept. 1-5 at Town Centre Park. Players born in 1999 or 2000 (12 and 13) who are interested in joining the Reds can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
PoMo’s Shin sharp in BC juvenile golf Port Moody’s Ally Shin placed a most respectable third at the B.C. Juvenile girls golf championship last week at Powell River’s Myrtle Point Golf Club. Nobody was a match, however, for West Vancouver’s Alix Kong. The 15-year-old Kong shot a sizzling 68 Friday to finish with a three-round total of 211 –– a staggering 15 strokes better than runner-up Keanna Mason of Maple Ridge. Shin was next at nine-over-par 228, while Coquitlam’s Ye Rin Suh placed fifth in the 21-shooter group at 13-over 232. In the B.C. Juvenile boys provincials on the same course, Coquitlam’s Oscar Baek and Kevin Vigna finished in a threeway tie for sixth spot along with Surrey’s Marcus Brown all at five-over 221 Trevor Yu of Vancouver was first in the 46-finisher field with six-under 210.
Coquitlam J r. Adanacs got off to a flying start with a pair of convincing wins at the Minto Cup national Jr. ‘A’ lacrosse championships. Now the trick is to maintain their altitude. The defending-champion Jr. A’s followed up their tournamentopening 12-6 victory S a t u r d ay ove r t h e Edmonton Eclipse with a 14-8 triumph Sunday over Ontario’s Whitby Warriors in Okotoks, Alta. “We had opportunities to execute our system at both ends of the floor and we did that,” Jr. A’s head coach Curt Malawksy told The TriCity News. “The kids battled hard, stayed disciplined and took advantage of our opportunities.” Against Whitby, the Jr. A’s built period leads of 6-4 and 9-7 before outgunning the Warriors 5-1 in the third period to make it a blowout. Ben McIntosh, Casey Ja ck s o n a n d T y l e r Garrison each pumped in three goals to guide Coquitlam. Jackson also contributed four assists. Other Jr. A’s goal-getters were Tor Reinholdt, Wesley Berg, Patrick Omeara, Travis Cornwall and Matthew Dindsale. Josh Phillips made 34 saves in the Coquitlam cage to earn the win. Versus Edmonton, the Jr. A’s again opened up a tight game in the third period by out-scoring the Eclipse 4-1 in the final 20 minutes on way to a six-goal victory. Jackson posted another seven-point game, netting four goals and adding three assists. McIntosh bagged three markers, with singles going to Jeff Cor nwall, Jackson Decker, Berg, Dinsdale and Omeara. Phillips made 25 saves to scoop the victory as Coquitlam out-shot Edmonton by a gaping 54-31 margin. Monday was an offday in the tournament, with round-robin action in the four-team event set to resume Tuesday (after The Tri-City News’ deadline) with the Jr. A’s battling the host Okotoks Raiders.
Bandits bound for Cup By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Port Moody Bandits are going to the 2011 President’s Cup after all. Members of the West Coast Sr. B lacrosse league squad had originally agreed they would not pay their own way to Akwesasne, Ont. to play in their fourth straight Canadian national tournament. An hour-long emerg ency meeting last Thursday hosted by B.C. Lacrosse Association brass and featuring representatives from six of the eight WCSLA squads hashed things over and, eventually, it was agreed that a league-wide fundraiser with each team kicking in $1,500 for raffle tickets would foot the Bandits’ travel bill. A motion was also passed that his will be the case in future years for the WCSLA playoffchampion squad. The Bandits qualified for nationals –– running Aug. 29 to Sept. 4 and hosted by the
Snake Island Muskies of the Iroquois Lacrosse Association –– by ousting the Ladner Pioneers in four games of the recent best-of-five playoff final. With many Bandit players unable to attend due to late notice and work commitments, head coach Rick Mang said nine regulars will make the trip, with the rest of the 20-player team made up of PoMo Thunder Jr. B players and Sr. C pick-ups. “I’ve never felt so good as when I left that meeting,” Mang gushed on the phone Friday in Prince George, where he was playing goalie for the PoMo Express in the Sr. C provincials. “The league’s going to get a lot stronger each year because of it.” Mang recalled the 2009 President’s Cup in Oshweken, Ont., and how big a hit his wallet took as a result. The Bandits won silver that year, second only to the Owen Sound Woodsmen. “I was out of holidays
Where Everyone’s A Winner! For all your Awards & Recognition Needs
so I lost a week’s wages,” Mang said. “Then it was $800 for the flight, plus hotel and food [costs]. You’re looking at a lot of money for one week.” Wi t h Va l l e y a n d Ladner reps absent at Thursday’s meeting, Mang said it was dicey whether or not the other WCSLA gover nors would approve funding for the Bandits to travel back east. Mang said the first motion by the Royal City Capitals was to send no B.C. representative team, one that was originally seconded by the Langley Warriors. Ironically, it was later
the Langley team rep who moved on the WCLSA group-funding idea. “I told them from the start we have enough players to go... if the flights are paid we could do it, if not we can’t,” Mang said. “Luckily, it all worked out in the end.” R AG L I N E : T h e goalie Mang won tournament MVP as the PoMo Express built an 8-1 lead and cruised to a 9-3 win over the rival Coquitlam Cobras to win gold in the eightteam Sr. C provincials last weekend in Prince George.
