No bows allowed under proposed Coquitlam bylaw
Mayors set to hike gas tax Enough yes votes pledged from Surrey, Vancouver, Tri-Cities for TransLink plan that would help fund the Evergreen Line

THE TRI-CITY NEWS
The protection and destruction of animals — as well as the safety of humans — were top of That’s the total mind for Coquitlam city council this week. Coquitlam is givOn Monday, council diing out in casino rected city staff to write a grants: page 8 bylaw banning bow hunting within the municipal boundaries. The unanimous vote came after two bears were struck by arrows on private property in June — and one of the injured bruins stumbled into the nearby Minnekhada Regional Park.
Mayors from Surrey, Vancouver, the Tri-Cities and several other cities are poised to force through a two-cent-a-litre gas tax hike to help fund the Evergreen Line and other transit expansion projects. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts, Vancouver’s Gregor Robertson and mayors from Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Langley City, West Vancouver and the District of North Vancouver issued a joint statement Tuesday saying they will vote in favour of TransLink’s Moving Forward supplement on Friday. The seven mayors represent 70% of Metro Vancouver’s 2.5 million residents and hold enough population-weighted votes to force the plan through even if most of the region’s 22 cities object. The mayors of Burnaby, Richmond and Delta said they will oppose the plan. The extra two cents a litre in gas tax would take effect next April and raise $40 million a year of the needed $70

“There’s no one in the region who thinks we do not need these projects.” Mayor Richard Stewart million annually to fund the plan. Mayors and the province would have one year to negotiate another $30 million worth of new funding sources for TransLink — perhaps road pricing, a vehicle levy, a second regional carbon tax or other mechanisms. If the province gets cold feet and refuses to approve new sources, the plan requires property taxes go up an average of $23 instead — a scenario that’s unacceptable to mayors in Richmond and Delta. Coquitlam Mayor Richard Stewart said he’s disappointed in the opposition from Richmond and Burnaby. see BRODIE: FUNDING FUNDING,, page 12

Shooting at Mr. Lube not gang-related, say cops Victim was targeted, says a Coq. RCMP officer, and is being somewhat co-operative By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Coquitlam RCMP have identified a potential suspect in the shooting last Wednesday at the Barnet Highway Mr. Lube that sent one man to hospital. While no arrests have been made, Cpl. Jamie Chung told The Tri-City News yesterday that investigators believe they know who pulled the trigger in the brazen daytime shooting. The victim is well-known to police and the incident appeared to be
Numbers are up The number of classes in Tri-City public schools with more than three students with individual education plans (IEP) is slightly higher this fall than the same time last year. A report approved by the School District 43 board of education last Thursday stated there were 708 classes with more than three students with IEPs. Last fall, when a group of parents from Sir Frederick Banting middle school expressed concerns about class composition, the district reported 660 classes as having more than three students with IEPs. In each case, consultation takes place with teachers and principals and the school superintendent must make sure the learning conditions are appropriate for students. Meanwhile, the district is also reporting that 54 classes exceeded minimum class size requirements but all involve music or choir instruction. By law, Grades 4 to 12 classes must have no more than 30 students and no more than three students with IEPs. firstname.lastname@example.org
Water level is up Unexpected service work at the Buntzen Lake powerhouse has caused the reservoir water levels to rise. The above-average water levels have resulted in the closure of Buntzen Lake trail (west) and floating bridge. The south beach is submerged, the north beach, grass area, docks, boat launch, access road and turn-around are closed. Boats on trailers are unable to launch at this time. In late 2010 and earlier this year, a project to replace a turbine at the Buntzen Lake powerhouse lasted seven months and caused water levels to rise, submerging beaches and picnic areas. The current issue is related to last year’s turbine replacement. BC Hydro, which owns the reservoir north of Port Moody, is unable to determine the duration of the work.

targeted but Chung stopped short of saying the shooting was gang-related. “Just because somebody is known to police does not mean he is officially in a gang,” Chung said. “If they belonged to certain groups, we would say the shooting is gang-related.” Neither the suspect nor the victim, who is expected to recover, has been officially identified and Chung said the matter is likely motivated by “drug-related activities.” Chung said the victim has been somewhat co-operative but police are still following up with their investigation. At around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28, a man opened fire on another man who was standing outside of his car while getting an oil change. Police said approximately five rounds were fired before the
suspect jumped into a nearby vehicle and sped off. The victim was responsive when several bystanders went to assist. One witness, who was parked in front of the building, said the shooter walked right past his vehicle while he was waiting for a fluid change. The suspect was not covering his face and appeared to be holding a handgun, he said. RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen said the shooter had no regard for the other employees or customers at the Mr. Lube when he opened fire on the facility. firstname.lastname@example.org

Douglas College is hosting 1,000 international students Number of foreign students at DC campuses up 17% this year By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Tri-City K-to-12 schools aren’t the only game in town when it comes to enrolling international education students. Douglas College is also a major player in the field of international education, boasting a 17% hike this fall in the number of foreign students taking post-secondary courses at the Coquitlam and New Westminster campuses. This fall, Douglas enrolled 1,000 international students, the same number as School District 43, which is considered one of the most successful international education programs in the province. President Scott McAlpine attributed the increased enrolment to greater awareness of the college abroad, including an understanding that the college provides “clear learning pathways” for students. “We are clearly a welcoming institution to international students,” McAlpine said, noting that the college was recently recognized with an award for showing leadership in internationalization from the Association of Canadian Community Colleges. Like SD43, the college has an international department that recruits students from abroad and has been targeting China, a major source of students for both. Partnering with Chinese post-secondary education institutions and enabling students to take dual degrees is another reason for the program’s success in Asia, McAlpine said. According to the college, 49% of its international students are from China with another 16.5% coming from South Korea. But the college is also attracting students from India and South America, and the college would like to expand in those areas. International students pay five times the tuition fees of domestic students — about $11,460 for 24 credits — and the extra money
TRI-CITY NEWS FILE PHOTO
Veterinary programs are just one of the options at Douglas College’s David Lam campus in Coquitlam. generated by these fees pays for an additional 375 seats for domestic students, according to McAlpine, adding that the program generates about $11.3 million in revenue and $24.5 million in spinoffs to the B.C. economy. While they’re here, international students have to pay for meals and lodging, and their families often visit. Most make their own private arrangements for apartments but some live in home-stay situations. They typically don’t take a full course load and most are taking business or humanities and social sciences courses, often finishing their degree at Douglas, although many do transfer to other universities. While the program is lucrative for the college, McAlpine said it’s not all about money. Douglas is endeavouring to provide international experiences to all its students by exposing them to students from around
the world and giving them opportunities to study abroad themselves. For example, the college’s international programs subsidize some of the costs of field schools in Wales, Belize and, in Uganda, a child, family and community studies practicum. “The point here is international education is creating domestic opportunities and also it’s just plain good for Douglas College because our students at Douglas are the ultimate beneficiaries of being exposed to different perspectives and different people.” Overall, Douglas College’s enrolment has grown 5% from last year to 10,700 students. It’s up almost 12% from 2009 and McAlpine attributed much of the increase to a faltering economy which is encouraging people to return to school to improve their job prospects. email@example.com

City would seek half of the $800k needed for path from TransLink
land owned by BC Hydro, which would require permission from the Crown corporation. The city would also need a commitment from TransLink to cover 50% of the $800,000 cost as part of its cycling infrastructure funding program. Council’s approval of the funding request, Currie said, would allow city staff to begin serious negotiations with both the transit authority and BC Hydro. If the route is approved by council, it would be consistent with the trails outlined in the city’s Master Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan, which was adopted in 2007. That plan calls for improved crossings, easier pedestrian access to elementary schools and new sidewalks and dedicate bike routes. The east-west bicycle crossing would also help funnel people into the city’s downtown, connecting them with other transit services, including West Coast Express as well as recreation and shopping amenities. A paved pedestrian/bike path would be separated from the road and would have a width of approximately 3 to 4 m, said a city staff report. Currie said that if the city receives the necessary approvals by early next year, construction on the facility could commence in spring or summer 2012. firstname.lastname@example.org
By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Port Coquitlam council is looking at a proposed $800,000 pedestrian/bike trail along Kingsway Avenue that city staff say would enhance the municipality’s eastwest cycling connections. Engineering staff are recommending councillors approve the first phase of the trail, which would run on the north side of Kingsway between Broadway Street and Wilson Avenue. Dave Currie, the city’s manager of transportation, said the route would eventually continue right to the Mary Hill Bypass, connecting the city’s west side with the Pitt River bridge, Pitt Meadows and beyond. “This would provide further connections to our industrial and job centres further east and also a direct connection to the Pitt River Bridge trail system,” Currie said. “It is very much a high-quality trail facility that would function well for the Tri-Cities.” But a few hurdles must be cleared before the cycling infrastructure can be built. The planned route would use
TRANSPORTATION FEEDBACK Port Coquitlam’s transportation challenges will be on the agenda at an upcoming open house, where the public is invited to give feedback on the city’s Master Transportation Plan. The document will replace a previous plan drafted in 2000 and will guide the city on future transit infrastructure improvements and upgrades. An open house will be held at Wilson Centre (2150 Wilson Ave.) on Oct. 18 between 6 and 9 p.m. Display panels about the current transportation system and its challenges will be on hand and residents are encouraged to share their views with staff, consultants and council. Input will also be collected at www. portcoquitlam.ca/mtp. Future opportunities for public involvement will come in the new year, when the city will seek feedback on the working draft plan in January before the final draft comes before council in the spring. email@example.com

COQUITLAM CITY COUNCIL: OCT. 3/11 MEETING
How they voted As a service to our readers, The Tri-City Newss publishes charts of how Coquitlam city councillors vote on issues before them at city council meetings...
GIVE THREE READINGS TO THE 2011 ANIMAL CARE AND CONTROL BYLAW [PASSED]
DIRECT CITY STAFF TO WRITE A BYLAW TO BAN BOW HUNTING IN COQUITLAM [PASSED]
Coun. Selina Robinson, who brought the motion forward, said the hunting incidents happened on farm land in northeast Coquitlam, close to the DeBoville Slough, which is frequented by dog walkers. Coun. Mae Reid said, “I thought the bow and arrow went out with Robin Hood.” Coquitlam will now look at adopting similar bylaws passed in Chilliwack, Saanich, Langford and Whistler, which impose fines on bow hunters. But Mayor Richard Stewart said in those municipalities, bow hunting is allowed for agricultural purposes as farmers are allowed to shoot animals using bow and arrows to protect their crops under the Right To Farm Act. “Staff do not believe that such an argument is likely to succeed [locally]; however, this could be evaluated in more detail in a future report,” Bill Susak, Coquitlam’s general manager of engineering, wrote in a memo to council last month. “Similarly, the bylaw prohibition may also be subject to challenge by Aboriginal groups in the future but staff anticipate this could be managed at an administrative level.” Susak also told council that staff will consider updating the city’s firearms bylaw in conjunction with the new bow hunting rules. Also on Monday, city council unanimously voted to give three readings to update the Animal Care and Control Bylaw, adding another definition for dangerous dogs — and giving city enforcement more teeth. Under the existing, 18-year-old policy, canines are either classified as “dogs” or “vicious dogs,” leaving no middle ground for city

bylaw or legal staff and dog owners. T h e d r a f t by l aw, which is expected to be adopted next month, allows for the term “aggressive dogs” — that is, dogs that have been a g g re s s ive i n p u b lic and dogs that have caused minor injuries. Owners of aggressive dogs will have to keep their pooches on shorter leashes and won’t be allowed to set their dogs free in off-leash dog zones. “Vicious dogs,” on the other hand, will now be
defined as pets that have seriously hurt a person or animal, or caused multiple minor injuries at least once. Vicious dog owners will have to muzzle their canines in public, post warning signs on their land and keep their dogs confined when left alone. Owners of vicious dogs that are at large face a $500 fine. Meanwhile, the city will also set up voluntary cat registration to help identify lost felines. Similar programs are already in place in Mission, Victoria, Oliver
and Creston. According to a city staff report, only 10% of cats that are found and brought into the Coquitlam Animal Shelter are reunited with their owners, compared with 89% of dogs brought to the shelter. The city re gistration service will be free when it starts. As well, the city plans to offer bimonthly microchipping clinics at the Mariner Way pound until December 2012 for dog and cat owners. The cost will be $10 per pet. jwarren@tricitynews.

Casino money helps with music and more By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Twenty-two Coquitlam groups will split more than $300,000 after being awarded 2011 Spirit of Coquitlam grants this week and seven of the recipients are repeats from last year. The Community Festival Planners’ Network, Coquitlam Heritage Society, Family Fishing Society, Place des Arts Society, Kinsmen Club of Coquitlam, Ter ry Fox Foundation and Vancouver Korean Dance Society also scored 2010 Spirit grants. The grants are funded by 12.5% of the casino revenue Coquitlam receives as host city to the Boulevard Casino. Since the g rant prog ram started in 2002 under the name Community Capital Fund grants, 129 community groups have collected $4.8 million in casino cash, with the Coquitlam Heritage Society, Place des Arts and the Kinsmen Club collecting nearly $200,000 each. Earlier this year, council tightened the evaluation criteria, requesting applicants show, among other things, how their program, event or activity will be funded and sustainable, and benefit a large number of Coquitlam residents.

To the rescue!
PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside
eritage Minister and Tri-City MP James Moore has an opportunity to save the day for the RCMP in British Columbia if he can play the role of conciliatory intervener in the current federal-provincial imbroglio over contract negotiations. By playing Dudley Do-Right, the heroic Mountie, to the federal government’s Snidely Whiplash, Moore may be able to raise the legitimate concerns of provincial and municipal leaders and gain a deal acceptable to all parties. He surely understands the concerns of municipal and provincial leaders who shoulder the burden of policing costs and want more say in approving new expenses. Moore appeared to concede as much in a speech to the Union of B.C. Municipalities last week, when he insisted the federal government wants to “work together” to cement a deal. By stepping in, Moore can present B.C.’s case to the federal government, which has to this point appeared to be taking a hard-line stance in negotiations. With Alberta renewing its RCMP contract through to 2032, B.C. would seem to be on its in own negotiations and is threatening to replace the RCMP with a provincial police force. But the stakes are higher in B.C., where 70% of policing is done by the RCMP compared to 42% in Alberta. Never a shrinking-violet, Premier Christy Clark isn’t backing down on the issue of accountability, and why should she? But more detail is required to establish that it would be cheaper to build a new force from scratch. Alberta did such a study in 2003, and figured the costs would be higher, although there are other issues to be concerned about other than money. Think reversing the HST decision is difficult? Imagine trying to get a new police force going while still maintaining the integrity of all the files, old, current and new. It would be a challenge and the premier knows this, and has indicated a willingness to get back to the negotiating table. Perhaps, with Moore as a go-between, B.C. can get a fair deal that will last for the next decade and beyond.
The meters are smart, the leaders... not so much BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VANCOUVER he annual Union of B.C. Municipalities convention last week spent quite a bit of time talking about new wireless technology. Unfortunately, most of it was wasted on ignorance and fear, fanned by the NDP, Green Party and some like-minded opportunists in local government. A tiny group of protesters gathered outside the Vancouver convention centre each morning, setting up a pile of picket signs wailing about imagined smart meter sins — from privacy invasion to human rights violations. One of them allowed that she was wearing “special clothing” to ward off the bad rays. That’s understandable, since BC Hydro calculates that a delegate’s wireless signal exposure from four days at the UBCM convention is equivalent to standing next to a smart meter for 1,147 years. And that’s not even
calculating those other horrible sources of electromagnetic energy bombarding downtown Vancouver, such as traffic lights, spark plugs and, let’s not forget, the sun or Earth’s molten core. It wasn’t all foolishness, however. I attended an economic development panel at which physician and cabinet minister Margaret MacDiarmid described the continuing extension of rural cell phone and internet service underway since the extension of the B.C. government’s contract with Telus. There was not a discouraging word about cell phone towers, the innovation that spawned the anti-wireless cult in California many years ago. Quite the contrary. MacDiarmid was beseeched to get cell service to northern Vancouver Island and un-serviced parts of the Interior, and to cut through the multi-ministry maze still required for routine approval of towers. Cell phones save lives on remote highways. In the main hall, supposedly experienced municipal leaders continued to parrot fear of “microwaves” and such drivel, either

because they believe it or because they are pandering to those who do. This continued on talk radio, which stoked the smart meter “controversy” all week, apparently because it reliably generates angry calls. The descent into farce became complete when delegates had a show of hands on a resolution to place a moratorium on a smart meter installation program that BC Hydro has already paid for. The vote was too close to call so they had to fish out their wireless voting devices to vote about 55% in favour of the moratorium. Premier Christy Clark was asked after the convention if her government would contemplate a moratorium on meter installation. “No,” she replied. This is not surprising, since the motion effectively asks BC Hydro to waste $930 million. “I’ve spent quite a bit of time talking with the experts about it,” Clark said. “I don’t share those health concerns because when we’re surrounded by wireless and cell phones, there are a lot of other sources of the problem that they’re concerned about.”
I’ve argued with numerous people about this. They often start with an exaggerated claim about the World Health Organization’s risk rating. In fact, WHO acknowledges that people who claim hypersensitivity to electromagnetic signals can’t identify them in controlled studies. WHO also notes that cell phone tower emissions are effectively five times weaker than the FM radio and TV signals to which we’ve all been exposed for decades. And cell base stations reach no more than 2% of international limits. And smart meter signals are much weaker than that. I’m done arguing with people who make up their own facts. I’ll just address those who haven’t bought into this nonsense. Please, survey your council candidates on smart meters, and on Nov. 19, support only those who have the common sense to understand what a smart grid is.

Light rail offers more for less The Editor, As P.T. Barnum observed, “There is a sucker born every minute.” And with the regional mayors goose-stepping in unison with TransLink’s demand for more money, it seems we are governed by suckers. TransLink’s gambit was to scare regional mayors with dire predictions of transit chaos if new sources of taxpayers’ money stopped flowing to the ivory towers on Kingsway, and it seems TransLink’s predictions of transit Armageddon worked. What has been not tackled is why TransLink is short on cash. The answer is simple, yet the powers that be just do not want to hear it: It is SkyTrain.
TRI-CITY NEWS FILE PHOTO
The letter writer says SkyTrain is too expensive. SkyTrain is a proprietary light-metro system and the taxpayer is paying three to four times more to build with it instead with modern light rail. Put another way, for every 1 km of SkyTrain built, we could have built 3 to 4 km of light-rail transit (LRT). The following example clearly illustrates the problem: Portland, Oregon, for an investment of $3 billion, has 85 km of LRT
operating on four lines, with 85 stations. Portland also has two streetcar lines. Metro Vancouver, for an investment of more than $8 billion, has 69 km of SkyTrain and Canada Line light-metro (the Canada Line is not compatible with SkyTrain in operation), with 47 stations. Thus, for almost one third the investment, Portland has a larger urban rail network, with
more stations servicing more destinations. Fo r t h e a n t i - L RT crowd, modern LRT today can carry more passengers than SkyTrain and faster, if it is designed to, yet it can be built very cheaply if need be. TransLink has bamboozled regional mayors with its SkyTrain nonsense for so long that it believes it and the result is ever higher taxes to fund hugely expensive mini-metro projects that again demand even more taxpayers’ money, which, in turn, again increases taxes and so on and so on. Wa n t to curb TransLink’s tax and spend appetite? Stop building with SkyTrain and plan for LRT instead. Malcolm Johnston, Delta

Mayor Rick Green said he’s leaning towards vo t i n g a g a i n s t t h e TransLink supplement. “I have a lot of difficulty with it,” he said, adding Metro residents are already “taxed to death.” B i g sw at h e s o f Langley get virtually no usable transit service for their contributions to TransLink, he said, while they face the prospect of paying more tolls to cross the Fraser River along with potential new fees on motorists.

He predicts there will be no deal with Victoria on contentious new mechanisms, most of which would raise the cost of driving as part of a wider strategy to steer more motorists to transit. “I think they’re going to be too complex and t o o c o n t rove r s i a l , ” Brodie said. Surrey and Vancouver are big enough under the weighted vote system to sway the decision with just a few other smaller cities on board. But Watts and other mayors have been busy trying to sway more cities to the yes camp and minimize the spectre of a divided region. Yes votes were expected from Tri-Cities mayors, who are desperate to build the long-promised Evergreen Line there. “It’s our turn,” Port M o o d y M ayo r J o e

“It’s odd that the two communities that have the newest SkyTrain lines appear to be prepared to vote down the supplement,” he said. The supplement would allow TransLink to deliver its $400-million contribution for the $1.4-billion Evergreen Line, ensuring the longstalled SkyTrain extension finally proceeds. The plan would also provide for RapidBus service over the Port Mann Bridge to Surrey and Langley, a new B-Line express bus route down King George Boulevard, a LangleyWhite Rock bus route, more frequent SeaBus service, SkyTrain station upgrades and various other bus service increases, along with some more money for road work and cycling routes.
The mayors’ joint statement calls it crucial to reducing gridlock, growing the economy and achieving long-term environmental goals. “There’s no one in the region who thinks we do not need these projects,” Stewart said. T h e n e g o t i at i o n s with the province offer a chance to finally gain funding sources to set TransLink up for the long term, he said. That would be critical to launching more distant projects, such as rapid transit expansion deeper in Surrey area and in Vancouver along the Broadway corridor to UBC. But Richmond Mayor Malcolm Brodie said, “I’m not going to support a package with a property tax and I won’t support other funding sources when they’ve not been defined.”

Changes coming to B.C. schools By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS
VICTORIA – The B.C. government will provide more money for special-needs support in the province’s public schools, and provide new training for teachers, according to Premier Christy Clark’s first throne speech. Lieutenant-Governor Steven Point delivered the speech Monday to open a new session of the B.C. legislature. It confirms that the province’s “net zero” negotiation mandate for public sector union contracts will be imposed for the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, whose contract expired last June. The BCTF has been refusing non-essential duties since school started in September, and on Monday the B.C. Public School Employers Association met to consider reducing teacher pay or imposing a lockout in an effort to force a settlement. The BCTF is demanding wage parity with other provinces and a range of benefit improvements, as well as hundreds of millions of dollars to reduce class sizes and increase special-needs support staff. Education Minister George Abbott said the additional
In her first throne speech Premier Christy Clark announced the province will increase funding for special-needs support and provide new training for teachers. money for special needs support will be in the “tens of millions” over the next three years. Decreasing class sizes by one student across the province would cost $150 million, and research suggests that smaller classes are far down the list of things that improve education outcomes, he said. The speech promises “additional flexibility and choice” in educating students, adding that “these changes will be bold and represent a significant improvement in how, when and
where education takes place.” NDP leader Adrian Dix said improvements to special needs support are only coming because of a B.C. Supreme Court decision earlier this year giving the government a year to consult on class size and composition limits taken out of teacher bargaining in 2002. “The government that lost in court on its action on class size and composition is now saying they may make some changes,” Dix said. “But in the year that we’re in, 12,000 classrooms are

outside the class size and composition limits, and they passed a law to establish those.” The speech also commits the government to make sure teachers who “abuse their position of trust are removed and not permitted to return.” Abbott said amendments are coming to legislation governing the B.C. College of Teachers. Victoria lawyer Don Avison reviewed the college last year and found that BCTF influence allowed teachers to return to classrooms after being convicted of serious crimes including cocaine trafficking and sexual assault of students. Other highlights of Monday’s throne speech: • B.C.’s first Family Day statutory holiday will be Feb. 18, 2013. • To reduce the backlog in B.C. courts, legislation is coming to relax restrictions on part-time work perfor med by retired judges to provide “surge capacity.” • Prosecutors in Stanley Cup riot cases will ask for TV and radio access to cases, which are expected to start this month. • New legislation is promised to restrict scrap metal sales to deter metal theft. firstname.lastname@example.org

Medical marijuana debate at UBCM By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS
Defenders of the right to grow pot under a medical marijuana licence scored a small victory at last week’s Union of BC Municipalities convention when they derailed a resolution that sought to require distribution be only through licensed commercial growers. Several Metro Vancouver cities want tighter rules to cut down on the number of growops blamed for feeding organized crime and causing safety risks. D o n n a S h u g a r, a Sunshine Coast Regional District director, said forcing users to buy through producers might leave the poor and disabled unable to affordably get medical marijuana if they can no longer grow their own. She said concer ns about safety could instead be dealt with by reducing the number of plants a licensed user can grow. A M e t ch o s i n re p called marijuana part of the fabric of B.C. society and said the government should “stop pussyfooting around the issue” and simply decriminalize pot. Others said the resolution was redundant because Ottawa has already indicated its planned overhaul of the licensing system will phase out individual growing permits. It’s the third straight year UBCM delegates have blocked resolu-
tions demanding tighter restrictions on medical pot. Also at last week’s UBCM convention:
CASINO RULES B.C. cities are demanding tougher scrutiny of gambling due to the infiltration of casinos by organized crime. Delegates at UBCM passed a resolution that argues the provincial Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General is in a conflict of interest because it oversees both the B.C. Lottery Corp., which runs casino gambling, and the Gaming Policy Enforcement Branch
that regulates it. Separate ministries should oversee those functions, according to the resolution, which also calls for a review of public gambling to restore confidence and a probe by the Auditor General into how charities benefit.
OIL TANKER Cities are demanding close scrutiny of plans to pump more oil for export through the Lower Mainland. Kinder Morgan wants to more than double the capacity of its Trans Mountain pipeline that sends oil sands crude from Alberta to its ter-
minal in north Burnaby, where oil is loaded onto tankers that sail past downtown Vancouver. An emergency resolution passed by UBCM delegates calls for the highest degree of environmental assessment and meaningful public consultation on any plans to ship more oil by pipeline or tanker in B.C. About 70 doublehulled oil tankers a year are harnessed to tugs and steered by local pilots through Burrard Inlet. Kinder Morgan is also able to send oil from the pipeline south into Washington State at Sumas.

SD43 teacher loses license after sex assault By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
A Coquitlam teacher who pleaded guilty to sexual assault in the U.S. has agreed to cancel his teaching licence, according to the BC College of Teachers (BCCT). Grant Hoyme, who taught
Grade 2 and 3 at Cape Horn elementary school, was arrested in Oregon while attending an education seminar in the summer of 2009. According to BCCT, Hoyme sexually assaulted a woman in the hotel where he was staying after climbing through her window with a
iPhone stolen in robbery outside McDonald’s
hol abuse program. He agreed to cancel his BCCT certificate of qualification in June 2011 after the college found his conduct was contrary to rules that state educators are to be role models who act ethically and honestly. Several media outlets had reported that Hoyme worked
at Cape Horn elementary following his 2009 arrest but School District 43 would not comment on his work history. Cheryl Quinton, the manager of communications for SD43, told The Tri-City News Hoyme no longer works for the district but said she could not give any more details, cit-
ing privacy concerns. “I can’t talk about the timing of events at all,” she said. “When we are informed of anything, we do act on it. We work very hard to ensure the safety of our students.” Quinton would not say when the district learned of Hoyme’s legal troubles.

Coquitlam RCMP is seeking the public’s assistance in locating two men who robbed an 18-year-old of his iPhone outside the McDonald’s on North Road last month. On Sept. 10, the victim was walking down North Road at around 4 a.m. listening to music when two men approached him and asked if they could use the phone. Before the victim could answer, one man grabbed the black iPhone 4 and fled. The victim and a passer-by chased the suspects but lost sight of them near the Lougheed SkyTrain station. The first suspect is described as a South Asian male in his early 20s, between 5’6” and 5’10” tall, with a slim build; he was wearing a red hoodie and baggy blue jeans.

Guardian Angels’ history on display Event honours PoCo’s police, fire and emergency services By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Fire, police and emergency services personnel will be honoured as part of the Port Coquitlam H e r i t a g e S o c i e t y ’s Guardian Angels display set up around the municipality this fall. U n i fo r m s, e q u i p ment and other historical items will be showcased at PoCo city hall (2580 Shaughnessy St.), the Archives (2100-2253 Leigh Sq.) and the display centre (2571 Mary Hill Rd.). The society hopes the event will commemorate the organizations the public relies on in case of emergency and inform the people about their long history in the municipality. Pippa van Velzen, president of the PoCo Heritage and Cultural Society, said she hopes the display will conjure up memories for residents who may have had experiences with emergency officials. “We want to honour our guardian angels,” she said. “We are hoping people will submit their memories of how they might have been helped by these people.” One of the stories society members came across while curating the display was how PoCo’s fire hall burned down in the early 1920s, a tale that highlights how far emergency preparedness has come in the city. Fritz Radandt, a society member, said in the early days, the responsibilities of both the fire and police chief generally rested with one person, who lived at the fire hall. A blaze in the hall’s kitchen burned

Port Coquitlam Heritage and Cultural Society president Pippa van Velzen stands next to a manequin wearing an early police uniform at the Leigh Square archives. She is encouraging the public to see the society’s Guardian Angels exhibit honouring the history of those who have served as firefighters, police and emergency services providers in the community. The display will be featured at PoCo city hall, the Leigh Square Archives and the display centre (2571 Mary Hill Rd.) starting today until December. down much of the building and set fire to nearby structures before crews from a neighbouring municipality arrived to help. Firefighters were able to save their truck but most of their hoses and equipment were destroyed in the blaze.
“There was a hydrant outside and nobody thought to use it,” Radandt said. “New Westminster had to come and put it out.” When PoCo almost went bankrupt several years later, the surviving fire truck was sold and crews responded
to emergencies using a converted dump truck. That lasted until the 1950s, when a proper fire truck was purchased from Ontario; that truck is now used annually in the PoCo May Day parade. Po r t C o q u i t l a m ’s police force also has a
lengthy history. When the municipality was first incorporated, two officers worked out of city hall, where the jail was located. In the 1920s, a provincial force took over policing duties in PoCo, then the RCMP took charge in the 1950s. The St. Johns
Ambulance Service and Coquitlam Search and Rescue have also contributed uniforms, equipment and photographs to the display. The opening for PoCo’s Guardian Angels was to be held today (Wednesday) at city hall. The items will be on dis-
play until December at all three locations. Those who wish to submit their memories of PoCo’s guardian angels can do so by emailing their story to email@example.com. For more information, go to www.pocoheritage. org.
Coq. library offers homework help to students With school back in session many students may discover they need a little extra help with some of their class projects and homework assignments. The Coquitlam Public Library is offering several free programs that can help students ease back into their homework woes and offer support to those struggling in certain areas of their studies. The Homework Help club is offered for students between Grade 2 and 7, where they will work side-by-side with teen tu-
tors, who are happy to explain the problems, provide advice and show correct techniques for answering questions. Sessions run at the City Centre branch between 3:45 and 4:30 p.m. every Friday until Nov. 25. There is also a Peer Homework Club being offered to students in Grades 9 through 12 at the Poirier branch. Students will work in small groups with a certified teacher, who will help participants with assignments and teach
techniques on how to stay ahead of their schoolwork. The meetings run between 4 and 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday in the Nancy Bennett Room between now and December. French tutorials will also be conducted at the Poirier branch on Wednesdays for between 4 and 4:45 p.m. Teen tutors must be in Grades 9 through 12, and speak fluent French. At the weekly meetings, they will work with French immersion students from elementary and
middle school. Together, they will read books, tackle homework assignments, or engage in simple, everyday conversations, all intended to help the youngsters hone their language skills. Students and tutors must register to participate and can do so by emailing librarian Chris Miller at cmiller@library. coquitlam.bc.ca or call 604-937-4140 (ext. 208). firstname.lastname@example.org
Books let off a little self-esteem A GOOD READ Helena Ashcroft-Loberg These titles are for families to read
ore than 30 years have passed since my own elementary school experience and the memories still linger when I walk my own children to their classes. School is underway now and is a big part of children’s lives. The books below are geared to school-age children but have a message that everybody can relate to. I thoroughly enjoyed them and I hope you do, too. My neighbour loaned me this first book, which was given to her by a friend, and suggests that you don’t have to be a child to absorb something from a children’s story book. • Couragee by Bernard Waber: In this simple yet entertaining story, author and artist Bernard Waber looks at various ways in which kids, and the occasional grownup, display bravery. “There are many kinds of courage,” the narrative begins, “Awesome kinds… everyday kinds.” Waber’s humour infuses many of the pages, including one from a dog’s viewpoint: A “Beware of Dog” sign adorns the front lawn of a house while, inside, a pooch quakes listening to eerie sounds “Courage is it’s your job to check out the night noises in the house.” A good read-aloud to encourage conversation
about what courage is and isn’t, and the many forms it takes. • Willow’s Whispers by Lana Button: A story about a little girl named Willow whom no one hears because she speaks so quietly. With a good idea, Willow finally learns to solve her own whisper problem. In the story, everyone cheers when Willow is successful and this is a great message for young children. Simple cartoon illustrations capture the child’s emotions as she struggles to be heard. • One by Kathryn Otoshi: This is another great and simply told story about colours and counting that turns into a lesson on bullying. A very smart, well designed story that
ends up including everyone in its game and in the end emphasizes: “Sometimes it just takes One.” • Incredible You!: 10 ways to Let your Greatness Shine Through and Unstoppable Me!: 10 Ways to Soar Through Life by Wayne Dyer: Both have vibrant, colourful illustrations and many positive messages for children. The author drives home the importance of being yourself and not just trying to fit in. • Noni says No by Heather HarttSussman: Noni can do many things: She can give her baby brother his bottle, she can help her mother in the kitchen and she can even walk over to her
friend Susie’s house. But Noni just can’t say “No.” When Noni finally finds her voice, the consequences are not what she — or the reader — expects. This story is an exploration of friendship and of the importance of trusting one’s own judgment. Many children (as well as many adults) will root for Noni as she learns that you can stand up for yourself and still be a good friend. • I’m Gonna Like Me: Letting off a Little Selfesteem by Jamie Lee Curtis: Told in alternating points of view, a girl’s and a boy’s, Curtis celebrates the key to feeling good, which is liking yourself because you are you. The zany and lively artwork go well
with the text. Curtis’ other books are well worth a look as well. Check with your local library for read-aloud books for your family to enjoy. Everyone loves a good story. A Good Read is a column by Tri-City librarians that is published every Wednesday. Helena Ashcroft-Loberg is a library technician at Terry Fox Library in Port Coquitlam.

A18 Wednesday, October 5, 2011, Tri-City News
By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Tri-City elementary students could get the chance to find out what it takes to be a fire chief for a day, as Fire Prevention Week kicks off in some municipalities next Monday. Emergency officials will be handing out safety booklets to schools across the region asking students to outline their fire preparedness plans. “They get the chance to take it home and work through it with their family,” said Port Coquitlam’s acting assistant fire chief, Randy Minaker. “Our program is built around practising your home escape plan.”
The student whose booklet is selected by his or her hometown’s fire department will get the chance to be fire chief for a day and will tour the fire hall, meet staff and eat lunch with firefighters. Fire Prevention Week runs between Oct. 9 to 15. During that time, Port Coquitlam fire crews will be visiting 16 schools in the municipality, targeting their education efforts at the Grade 3 and Grade 4 levels. In Coquitlam, the department will hold an open house at the Mariner fire station (775 Mariner Way) and invite residents to meet fire officials and sit in the trucks. The event will take place on Wednesday,
Oct. 12, between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. “It is an opportunity for members of the public to come in and meet firefighters and see the equipment,” said Paula Faedo, a fire inspector with Coquitlam Fire and Rescue. “We will also have some public education information.” Port Moody fire department is encouraging residents to practise their fire escape plan during Fire Prevention Week. email@example.com

Coquitlam man’s film wins award at NYC festival By Todd Coyne THE TRI-CITY NEWS
C o q u i t l a m ’s Jo e l McCar thy can’ t remember the first time he made a film but he can remember first time he asked the question “Why does god hate me?” The title of the 21-year-old’s latest short film was inspired by a conference he attended during his days at Port Moody secondary school. It was hosted by fringe fundamentalist Christians in Reading, California and an overly zealous aunt — “Who’s a nice lady and all,” he notes — had forced him to go. “ I ’d a lw ay s b e e n around the very left-wing side of Christianity in my life and I assumed it would be more like that,” McCar thy recalled. “But about 10 minutes into this conference, people start speaking in tongues and I’m basically out of my comfort

Coquitlam’s Joel McCarthy talks with an actor during filming of “Why Does God Hate Me?” (poster above).
“Growing up in the suburbs of Vancouver my whole life, it was a really shocking thing to know that that’s not happening all that far away from us. Like, we drove there.” Joel McCarthy, Coquitlam filmmaker, on a religious conference that inspired his movie zone. Then the pastor stands up and shouts, ‘We must cure the gays and end homosexuality!’ And the whole crowd
stood up and started cheering.” T hat’s where the conference ended for McCarthy.
“Growing up in the suburbs of Vancouver my whole life — in Coquitlam — it was a really shocking thing to know that that’s not happening all that far away from us. Like, we drove there.” And with that in mind, this year McCarthy finished writing and directing Why Does God Hate Me?, a dark comedy short film tackling the issue of growing up Christian and homosexual.
The cost is $20 for The Workbook.

McCarthy already working on his next film continued from page 19
But while it was that first step out of his “comfort zone” that inspired the film, McCarthy said the movie’s topic isn’t really his home turf either. You see, McCarthy’s not gay, although he “definitely got the reli-
Small motor info at library Attention handy men and women: Coquitlam Public Library has a resource for you. Library patrons can access the Small Engine Repair Reference Centre, an online database of 440 reference books containing information on how to repair lawnmowers, motorcycles, ATVs or boat motors. More than 80,000 small engine repairs are covered, with more than 25 years of various engine models, as well as routine maintenance, such as tune-ups and brake service. “We are confident the community will find it useful,” said Coquitlam reference librarian Jay Peters. “The library also subscribes to the automotive databases AllData and Auto Repair Reference Centre, which are quite popular, and people often ask us about small engine repair.” The library has free use of the database until next September but if its well used, according to Peters, it will consider subscribing to the database past the one-year mark. To access the online database, go to www.library. coquitlam.bc.ca. A Coquitlam library card is required to log in. For more information, call 604937-4144, or visit the City Centre branch (3001 Burlington Dr.) or the Poirier branch (575 Poirier St.).

gious persecution side of it,” he said. And audiences have been “getting” his film too. On Aug. 21, Why Does God Hate Me?? won best director in the gay/ lesbian short film category at the New York City International Film Festival.
The youngest by far on the list of nominees, the 20-year-old was up against competition nearly four times his senior. And while McCarthy isn’t gunning for Hollywood just yet — he’s still happily living at home in Coquitlam
while he prepares for his final year of film school at North Vancouver’s Capilano University — he does have a feature film script in the works that he hopes will further stir things up in his already bright young career. “I’ve been putting
down my nose and really working hard on that this summer,” he said, without giving away too much. “It’s definitely a change of pace from the last film” email@example.com

SCARY STORY CONTEST
Fantastic phantasm could play role in your winning entry The annual Scary Story Contest â€” presented by Coquitlam Public Library, Port Moody Public Library and The Tri-City News â€” is back and welcomes writers in two age categories: 11 to 14 years and 15 to 18 years. We can hear you snickering to yourself. Frightening a bunch of namby-pamby librarians and newspaper folk sounds simple, right? Well, think again. The judges know scary stories and scary movies. If you resort to clichĂŠs, theyâ€™ll bundle up your entries, slip them inside a pillowcase and rest their heads on them â€™til they nod off to sleep. So be original! Be daring! Write something judges havenâ€™t seen or heard or thought of. Make them fear the dark like they did as kids and youâ€™ll end up with a tidy prize and your name in print.

Hitting the dance floor for hospice By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
he general sales manager of Port Coquitlam’s Metro Ford Motors is the first to admit he’s stepping out of his comfort zone. Since June, Kent Magnuson — along with eight other high-profile business people and civic leaders working in the Tri-Cities — has been practising for Dancing With Our Stars (DWOS), a fundraiser for the Crossroads Hospice Society that will be held on Saturday at the Red Robinson Show Theatre in Coquitlam. Magnuson and his partner Brooke Foster will rumba and swing to Elvis Presley’s 1972 high-energy hit Burning Love, which starts “Lord almighty/I feel my temperature rising” — fitting lyrics given Magnuson’s nerves on stage. “I think before I go out, I’m going to have waves of panic,” he said, “but I’m just going to go for it. “Retreat is not an option.” Magnuson, like the other competitors, had no formal experience in ballroom dancing before he walked into the Arthur Murray Dance Studio in PoCo to begin lessons for the second annual charity event. Most of the dancers were recruited by Dee Parry, DWOS chairperson and a Tri-City News’’ sales rep who brought the idea to Crossroads after seeing a similar fundraiser in the Okanagan, based on the popular television show. The contestants were chosen because of their service work and community status, she said. “They are really brave for doing this,” Parry said, “because this is all foreign to them. They’ve never performed like this in front of a crowd and we’re so proud.” There have been some bumps along the way. One contestant pulled out for family reasons; another injured her foot badly away from the dance studio last month. Still, Parry promises this year’s performance will be just as good as the debut show, which was held at the Terry Fox Theatre in PoCo and collected more than $16,000 for the Port Moody-based hospice. Besides the friendly competition, which includes prizes for best technical and best overall dances — decided

Global TV anchor Steve Darling and Karen Daniels of JRFM — both DWOS competitors last year — will emcee, Damian Marshall and KarenLee Batten will sing and Port Moody secondary’s Ben Freemantle will return home from San Francisco, where he is currently studying ballet, to wow the crowd with his cousin, Cecile LaRochelle, of LaRochelle Vocal Studios in Vancouver. Danielle McLellan, who was asked by her BC Ambulance colleague Bob Lee to join him as a contestant, said, “I just love to dance so I’m going to enjoy this. It’s also a great cause.” McLellan and her partner Darek Stiller will perform a burlesque-type number built around the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ cover of Phenomena. Ballroom dance champions Barbara Ferchuk and Brent Smith, co-franchisee owners of Arthur Murray in PoCo, said the competitors’ dance partners ensure the novices are guided properly. “They’re doing show dancing so, what’s most important, is that they’re smiling and giving it their best,” Ferchuk said. • Tickets at $50 are still available for Dancing With Our Stars, and are at the door.

PEAK bands rise to charity challenge Centennial grads that formed two bands are among 20 acts vying for the $100,500 prize By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
The Matinée and Redgy Blackout are in the same boat. Both bands, which have members that graduated from Coquitlam’s Centennial and Gleneagle secondary schools, knuckled down this summer for the PEAK Performance Project, a prestigious professional development program sponsored by 100.5 FM The Peak that helps new and emerging artists in the music industry. Twice, both bands had tried to get into the competition but were successful only this year when their names — along with 18 others from around B.C. — were picked out of 400 applicants, automatically winning them $5,000. And next Friday, their final assignments are due. The contest has been nerve-wreaking to say the least, with the bands having to check off a series of boxes for their homework to get to the top spot. Last year, the $100,500 grand prize was awarded to the rapper Kyprios while Juno-winner Said The Whale, which played the Port Moody Festival of the Arts last Saturday, reaped silver. But heir fears will likely be allayed on Oct. 26 when the Vancouver radio station announces on air the top five artists who will go on to the finale at the Commodore Ballroom on Nov. 17. Since June, the 20 bands took on compulsory challenges such as penning new songs, playing live shows and attending a week-long boot camp in Princeton, where they learned from the pros.
Above, The Matinée (from left to right, Matt Rose, Geoff Petrie, Matt Layzell, Mike Young and Pete Lemon), all 1997 graduates of Coquitlam’s Centennial secondary, and, at right, Redgy Blackout, whose Scott Perrie (on left) graduated from the same high school in 2001, have until next Friday to submit their final packages for the PEAK Performance Project.
This Saturday, The Matinée will meet another contest target by raising awareness for a charity when it performs at the John B Pub in support of the Coquitlam Animal Shelter (Redgy Blackout and Fera, also of Coquitlam, will be the guest acts). The Matinée’s guitar/vocalist Matt Rose said the shelter was an easy pick for the band, given four of the five musicians are owners of pets from the Mariner Way pound; a couple of them also have volunteered there. Rose said getting chosen for the PEAK Performance Project came as The Matinée was one of 20 bands taking part in another radio station contest: The SHORE 104.3 FM’s Summer Song Search. Its song, Sweetwater, made it to the top 10 and allowed the four-year-old band to work with — and open for — Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo, in Whistler, in June. “It took us by surprise to be involved with both radio stations,” Rose said, adding the summer was “incredibly busy but very rewarding.” Though the indie rock band known for its solid live shows didn’t include Sweetwaterr in the PEAK Performance Project (they chose their popular single The Road d instead), Rose said it will be re-recorded for The Matinée’s new full-length album, due out next year. As for Redgy Blackout, whose Scott Perrie graduated from Centennial in 2001, its non-profit of choice for the Peak Performance Project is BC’s Children’s Hospital. It’s donating all of its proceeds from its song When U Were A Kid to the hospital foundation and is currently setting up some live gigs at the facility; its goal is to raise $5,000 for sick children through online donations (http://redgyblackoutmusic.bandcamp.com/track/when-u-were-a-kid). see PROJECT, OJ C , page g 32

Project ‘amazing’ continued from page 31
Perrie, 28, said the song was easy to write and proved to be a perfect fit for the band’s charity. “It’s about how joyful kids are and as we get older, we tend to get caught up in the day to day, 9 to 5,” Perrie said of the song. “We just forget to live in the moment.” RedgyBlackout’s roots-rock sound is infused with “a theatrical flair,” continued Perrie, who used to sing with the Coastal Sound Music Academy, has a theatre diploma from Capilano University and will be appearing at the Vancouver P l ay h o u s e t h i s Christmas as JeanPaul in La Cages Aux Folles. He and band mate Jeremy Breaks, a Prince G e o r g e n a t ive, include different instr uments in their performance such as the banjo, kazoo and trumpet and “people don’t really expect to hear that from a young, traditional rock band,” Perrie said, adding that b e i n g i nvo l ve d in the PEAK Performance Project “has been an amazing experience. We’re so proud.” • The Coquitlam Animal Shelter fundraiser, featuring The Matinée, Redg y Blackout and Fera, will happen on Saturday, Oct. 8 at the John B Pub (1000 Austin Ave., Coquitlam) from 2 to 5 p.m. Tickets at $20 include a burger and beer; all of the proceeds will go to the shelter.

OMG — the only entry from the Tri-Cities — is described as “Becca and Becky have a typical teenaged chat that shows how today’s social networking sites are butchering the English language in an LOL way.”

Kevin Mulnar of Langley corrals a member of the Coquitlam-based United team during a B.C. Rugby Union men’s Div. 2 game Saturday at Hume Park. United won 12-10, while its Div. 1 men’s squad fell by the identical score later to Langley.
Jugglers knock off No. 5 Fox in football clash By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Ter ry Fox Ravens opened Friday’s game with two lengthy drives that resulted in no points. Notre Dame Jugglers
decided that was a prime time for an upset. The unheralded Jugglers of east Vancouver overcame a 3-0 deficit by rattling off three straight touchdowns on way to a 21-9 upset victory over No.
5-ranked Fox in a B.C. AAA senior high school football exhibition game at Percy Perry Stadium. “We’re just young and they exposed us,” said Fox co-head coach Martin McDonnell. “If we scored on those two
first-half drives, it’s a totally different game.” A 10-yard Brian Hope field goal and an 11-yard reception by Ashton Passchier from QB Trevor Casey was all the scoring the Ravens could muster.
E N D Z O N E : Fox hosts South Surrey’s Earl Marriott on Friday to open league play at Percy Perry, 7 p.m., while the Centennial Centaurs do the same by visiting Surrey’s Lord Tweedsmuir Panthers.
Perhaps the Coquitlam Express should play three games in three days more often. The Express capped a gruelling weekend series with a gritty 4-3 victory Sunday afternoon over the host Alberni Valley Bulldogs at Weyerhaeuser Arena. The victory was the second in the tough trio for the Express, who opened the B.C. Hockey League season with a pair of losses and now sit a respectable 2-3-0. Mitch Nardi’s two goals, along with goalie Khaleed Devji’s 33-save effort, saved the day for the Express, who led 1-0 and 4-2 at the breaks. “Surviving a three-game weekend, in this case three 60-minute contests in less than 48 hours, can be a monumental task for any team,” Express assistant coach Grant Kerr said via the team’s website. “[We] are showing encouraging signs offensively. The defensive game still is a work in progress and will receive more attention in practice.” Alex Petan and Clinton Atkinson were the other Express triggermen against the Bulldogs. The Express opened the weekend Friday with a 6-2 romp over the Salmon Arm Silverbacks before a sparse crowd of 674 at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex. Coquitlam darted to a 3-0 lead before the game was 22 minutes old and sailed to the win. Alexander Kerfoot netted a pair of goals and added one assist for the Express, whose other goals came courtesy of Taylor Love, Steven Layani, Malcolm McKinney and John Siemer, who also collected two assists. Things turned around abruptly Saturday, as the Express trailed 4-0 early the second period and struggled in a four-goal defeat. Kerfoot netted Coquitlam’s lone goal. ICING: The Express selected Coquitlam defenceman Viktor Dombrovskiy with their first of two picks in the inaugural BCHL affiliate player draft of 15-year-olds last week.
Black Panthers stop Steelers in overtime By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Four games into the regular season, the Port Moody Black Panthers have earned six of a possible eight points. Ron Luniw will take that any time. “That’s 750 per cent,” said the Cats general manager, after his team tripped the Grandview Steelers 6-5 in overtime Saturday at the Port Moody Rec Complex. “In my history, if you can have that at the end of year you could win a championship. “Realistically, we could be 4-0 but I don’t want to be greedy.” With two victories and a pair of OT losses, including a 6-5 defeat Friday to the host Abbotsford Pilots, the Cats are indeed off to one of their best starts
“We can skate with anybody and our big thing is we’re competing.” Cats GM Ron Luniw in years. Against Grandview, they battled back from 2-0 and 3-1 deficits and took the win on a Trevor Kang tally two minutes into the extra session. The turning point for the Cats came in the second period, in which they out-scored the Steelers 4-1. “We started slowly but in the second period we got into speed mode,” Luniw said. “We can skate with anybody and our big this is we’re competing.”
Martin Campbell rifled home two goals to pace the Cats, who got a standout 46-save performance by goalie Nick Taylor. Rino Minni, Dylan Friel and Richard Moul, who netted the 5-5 equalizer with fewer than six minutes remaining in regulation time, were the Cats’ other goal-getters. On Friday, Taylor was again on the top of his game, blocking 52 blasts as PoMo prevailed in OT over the Pilots. Anthony Dispirito and Friel rallied the Cats with a goal and two assists apiece, while the other single marksmen for PoMo were Kang, Julian Klaric and Cameron Patterson. The Cats host the Richmond Sockeyes, who sit 4-0 via four straight shutouts, on Saturday, 7:45 p.m.
JENNIFER GAUTHIER/THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Rino Minni of the Port Moody Black Panthers out-races the Grandview Steelers’ Cody Rowand during a PIJHL game Saturday in PoMo. Minni scored once as the Cats skated to a 6-5 overtime triumph.

long blast deflected in off the diving Manitoba goalie’s fingers, then she scored what proved the winning tally with time winding down in the second half on a long, high drive into the back of the net. “Melissa was fantastic today and showed why she is one of the premier players in Canada,” said TWU head coach Graham Roxburgh. “Her movement, ability to run at people and her decision-making was excellent.”
