Casino cash for groups Some repeat recipients By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Twelve non-profit groups in Coquitlam are thousands of dollars richer after hitting the jackpot this week with their community programs. On Monday, city council awarded nearly $275,000 in Spirit of Coquitlam grants based on recommendations from a staff committee that assesses bids from local organizations wanting a piece of the municipality’s gaming revenues. Grants ranged from $1,100 for the Family Fishing Society to $103,000 for the Town Centre Field Sport User Group for a new scoreboard at Percy Perry Stadium. But also on the list were familiar names that, in the past, have been given tens of thousands of dollars in casino cash to run programs at city facilities.

Station designs revealed Meetings kick off next week to solicit public input on plans for the Evergreen Line By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Transportation officials this week launched the month-long consultation for the Evergreen Line by unveiling the station designs at a Coquitlam city council meeting. The illustrations show six confirmed stations along an 11 km corridor linking Burnaby with Coquitlam, and feature glass and wood designs in well-lit areas using the CPTED (Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design) standard. On Monday, Mark Traverso, an Evergreen senior project manager,

told city council the public will get a chance to see the drawings up close at six open houses this month: • Wednesday, Oct. 13, 6 to 9 p.m., Coquitlam city hall; • Saturday, Oct. 16, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Cameron rec complex, Burnaby; • Saturday, Oct. 23, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Coquitlam city hall; • Monday, Oct. 25, 6 to 9 p.m., Cameron rec complex; • Wednesday, Oct. 27, 6 to 9 p.m., Inlet Theatre, Port Moody; • Saturday, Oct. 30, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Port Moody rec complex. Traverso said the feedback will guide planners on the final stages of the $1.4-billion rapid transit line, which is set to be built by 2014 — though is still partially short of funding. see COUNCIL HAS QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS, page 3

This is an illustration of the easternmost Evergreen Line station; it is slated to be located next to the Evergreen Cultural Centre at the southwest corner of Town Centre Park and the tail track extends along Pinetree Way, next to Lafarge Lake.

Evergreen Line station locations designed to serve current & future populations LOUGHEED TOWN CENTRE STATION

LOUGHEED TOWN CENTRE: The current station, along the Millennium Line, will be expanded for the Evergreen route to include a main plaza updated with trees and a new surface treatment. Entries will be through the two current access points.

BURQUITLAM STATION

BURQUITLAM: Located beside Burquitlam Plaza, on the east side of Clarke Road, between Smith and Como Lake avenues, the station will serve the current 6,000 residents plus new residents as the area develops. The station will serve as a major connector for people travelling to SFU. IOCO: Located at Ioco Road and Barnet Highway on the north side of the CP Rail corridor, the station will serve the current 10,000 residents. It will have entrances on both sides of the Barnet. PORT MOODY CENTRAL: Located at ground level along the CP Rail corridor between Moody and Williams streets, the station will be connected with the West Coast Express platform. The roof features wood and design elements reflective of the city’s heritage. The existing park and ride and bus site will be reconfigured to cut traffic congestion.

COQUITLAM CENTRAL: Located on the existing West Coast Express and bus loop site, the station will be located just east of the Mariner Way overpass and north of the CP Rail tracks. The entry point is at the east end via stairs, elevators and escalators. DOUGLAS COLLEGE: Located at the south end of Town Centre Park, beside Evergreen Cultural Centre, it will serve 10,000 residents and 4,000 Douglas College students and staff.

City eyes more diversion on Hawthorne Avenue and one building on Shaughnessy Street h ave y i e l d e d s o m e mixed results, according to a city staff report. The bins servicing the 84 units on Hawthorne Avenue were half and one-third full while the those serving the 33 units on Shaughnessy Street were full. Plastic bags and other contamination was also apparent in the bins, according to the report. “Contamination in the multi-family units are a factor,� he said. “We are seeing what might be done to improve in that area. Having said that, this is all very preliminary.� The city has also restructured the cost of its waste bins in order to create a financial incentive for using the smaller, 120 l carts. Those who use the larger 360 l garbage carts will pay more in order to make the cost of the smaller bins cheaper for residents. Zahynacz said this will encourage people to make sure they recycle and compost and keep the amount of trash they create to a manageable amount.

PoCo looks to exceed Metro’s diversion target By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Po r t C o q u i t l a m ’s kitchen waste program and bi-weekly garbage collection could help the city achieve a diversion rate of 80% — 10% higher than Metro Vancouver’s target. Currently, the city is able to divert 63% of its garbage from the landfill to recycling and organic waste streams, but with greater public participation, Igor Zahynacz, PoCo’s director of engineering, said the number could be significantly higher. “With more diligent diversion in both recycling and green kitchen waste, we think 70% could be exceeded,� he said. “It could get up to 75 or 80%.� Since the waste-reduction initiatives began, PoCo residents have reduced the amount of trash going to the landfill by 27% while recycling and organic waste collection has gone up. The change means

TRI-CITY NEWS FILE PHOTO

The more trash is recycled or composted, the less goes to the landfill, resulting in savings to taxpayers. the city will save more than $55,000 in landfill costs this year, savings that will increase as Metro Vancouver raises its garbage processing fee from $82 per tonne to $97 per tonne. Expanding the kitchen waste program, he added, could go a long way toward achieving the higher diversion rate. The city is looking at making the program available for multi-family housing complexes, where waste collection is generally left to a contractor paid for by the strata. A pilot study that placed green bins at two multi-family buildings

According to a city staff report, 907 residents have received 360 l carts since the beginning of the year. Of those carts, 214 were for garbage, 405 were for recycling and 288 were for kitchen/ yard waste.

Formerly called the C o m m u n i t y C ap i t a l Fund grants, the Spirit grants make up 12.5% of the 10% of net proceeds the city receives as host to the Boulevard Casino on United Boulevard.

They’re OK with Coquitlam Survey says Coquitlam residents generally happy with lives here Stories by Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Coquitlam residents say their quality of life is good and improving, they’re satisfied with municipal services and are getting good value for their tax dollar, according to an annual IpsosReid poll. The 2010 Citizen Survey, commissioned by the city, was conducted on the telephone with 400 Coquitlam adults between May 31 and June 10 of this year and measured, among other things, people’s responses to questions about

city services, taxation, transportation and personal safety. Respondents ranked transportation — especially the lack of rapid transit — as their top concern, followed by municipal spending and crime, said Catherine Knause, associate vicepresident for Ipsos Reid, which has been hired by the city to gauge residents’ views since 2003. This year’s poll shows 96% of participants rate their quality of life in Coquitlam today as very good or good, with 22% saying their life has improved over the past five years — an eight-point increase from last year, she said. The reasons for the improvements include more recreational facilities, better transportation/ roads and more shopping. Still, the 14% who said their

quality of life had worsened since 2005 noted crime rates, high growth and traffic congestion, Knause said, adding the biggest crime concerns centred around fear of break-ins or property theft, drugs and gangs or gang violence. As for city services, respondents put public works (i.e., utilities) in first place, followed by fire services, parks/trails and recreation and cultural opportunities. Recycling and garbage services also went up 12 points over last year, likely because of the change in the collection contractor, she said. “Coquitlam is on par or better than other municipalities in the Lower Mainland,” Knause told city council during a presentation of the results on Monday night. jwarren@tricitynews.com

to property classes and assessments, the 1,100 owners of industrial properties will be consulted. “It’s a big leap when we go from nine [zones] to three,” he said at Monday’s land use committee meeting, adding the city needs to address taxation, operations and other impacts for industrial owners before a public hearing is held. Coun. Brent Asmundson said while the plan is positive, the city should move cautiously. Already, the review is being applauded by two development groups that have been asked to give feedback. “The efficient use of industrial lands is a critical component of an

City planners are looking at how to replace the current nine industrial zones into three general categories: M1 (general industrial), M2 (industrial business) and M3 (business enterprise). The aim is to expand the local job market and spur economic growth by making the industrial areas open to other types of business.

A pesky beaver that has recently chewed its way through about a dozen trees around Coquitlam’s Lafarge Lake is being hunted by the city. Urban forestry operations manager Lanny Englund said the city is using a contractor to live trap the rodent and relocate it outside of Coquitlam. It is believed the animal was not captured last year — when the municipality rounded up 12 or so beavers at Lafarge — and had come in via a culvert from the Hoy/Scott Creek system. Last month, the city installed an exclusion fence at the culvert entrance to stop more beavers from getting into the lake. “They’re not very agile creatures and they can’t climb so it’s quite easy to block them,� Englund said, adding the city has also wrapped Lafarge trees with wire mesh to prevent further tree chomping. The fall is when the flat-tailed herbivores prepare for semi-hibernation and cut down trees for building and winter food storage in their lodges; on the B.C. coast, however, most beavers continue to stay active year-long because of the milder climate. Englund said the relocation is primarily for safety reasons as Town Centre Park, where Lafarge Lake is located, is popular with pedestrians, cyclists and picnickers, and it has limited forested surroundings. Beavers also tend to reproduce quickly, with up to three generations living together in the same area. jwarren@tricitynews.com

3 years is fine

PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside

R

ural politicians who voted to keep the current three-year election cycle probably have their ear on the pulse of the electorate more than their big-city counterparts. They surely recognize that those who voted for them — the pitifully few actively engaged citizens who do — probably prefer more frequent elections. These voters take their responsibility seriously and want more opportunities to have their say in how councils and school boards are run, not fewer. There are, after all, no opposition parties in Tri-City civic politics to raise a stink when things go bad. Voters and elections are what make municipal politicians accountable. We can understand why many urban politicians would prefer four-year terms. Saving money is one argument but money spent on elections is well spent. Add another year to the term and more voters would likely become disengaged, giving even less bang for the buck. Elections at least remind citizens of their obligations and bring important issues into their field of vision. It’s true city councillors have tough jobs to do and difficult decisions to make. In some of the bigger cities, meetings go on for hours and politicians need to be informed on many issues. They face tough budgets every year and sometimes elections conflict with those budget discussions. But these are challenges that can be managed without reducing the opportunities for voters to have their say. Another argument in favour of longer terms is the stability an extra year would bring to local governments. Hello? Have you been to a council meeting lately. These institutions are as grey and predictable as the weather in November, and most councillors are incumbents. At least elections liven things up a little and remind politicians under whose service they labour. Every three years, they have to get in front of the voters and justify their jobs once again. Give them more time? No. Longer terms might be good for senior governments but when it comes to decisions about garbage, taxes and zoning, local governments can and should be nimble.

A canyon between urban & rural, rich & poor BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher WHISTLER he glass-and-cedar mansions of B.C.’s Olympic playground sparkled in the sun as local government leaders arrived for their annual date with the premier. They swung off the new Sea-to-Sky Highway to full hotels, packed restaurants, designer shops, strolling international tourists and lavish government and corporate receptions. This display of wealth and privilege offered quite a culture shock for smalltown delegates who make up the majority at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. So it was interesting to see poverty emerge as the unofficial theme this year. I happened to be the only reporter in the room as delegates questioned provincial cabinet ministers on building local economies. The first question, tossed out as an icebreaker, was about B.C.’s minimum wage,

T

frozen at $8 an hour since Premier Gordon Campbell imposed his market philosophy on the province in 2001. Labour Minister Murray Coell’s admission that it’s almost time to raise it caused a feeding frenzy by the city media, bored as they are with small resource towns and their hard-luck stories. Coell tried to skate backwards when TV cameras cornered him the next day but his original point stood. The BC Liberals long ago eliminated income tax and medical premiums for low-wage workers, and even subsidize their rent, but the cost of living keeps rising. It appears B.C. will soon grudgingly join Newfoundland and Nunavut at $10 an hour. Lost in all this were the real subjects of the economic panel, such as a plea for provincial help to keep farms viable. Nobody talks about an $8-an-hour minimum wage for farms, corner stores or other seven-day-a-week family businesses, where it’s mostly a theory. As expected, the most divisive issue at this year’s convention was a proposed shift to four-year terms for municipal councils. Here

again, a canyon separates urban and rural, rich and poor. A Vancouver councillor now makes $61,674 a year, plus expenses for outings such as the UBCM convention — not bad for a part-time job. In B.C.’s smallest towns, when you calculate the actual hours for councillors, you find another group that doesn’t make even Campbell’s miserly minimum wage. It was these folks who voted down the idea of four-year terms — three years is enough of a commitment. The poor were thrust into the spotlight again when Campbell took the stage for the traditional convention-closing speech. After a fond look back at the Olympics, he imagined himself and Finance Minister Colin Hansen as a figure skating pair for a little self-deprecating humour about the hasty introduction of the harmonized sales tax. With the federal clock ticking, “we rushed out and we threw the HST up in the air, and we promptly fell on our faces,” Campbell said.

“Well, we soldiered on with the program. Some were saying that the only thing we had really mastered was the death spiral.” Then he got serious. He didn’t plot the HST before the election. He didn’t lie but he accepts now that many people will never believe it. Then Campbell threw his latest pitch in a long-shot bid to save the HST and his government via referendum next fall: The HST helps the poor. Tax rebates for more than a million lowincome people add up to $230 a year for a single senior or $920 a year for a low-income family of four. Campbell did not return to the argument that the HST helps resource industries recover and grow. It’s too vague for people intent on checking their restaurant bills. He also knows the media are bored by economics, just as they are the sob stories of small-town unemployment.

TRI-CITYY LETTERS Fountain feedback questions decision The Editor, Re. “Fleur-de-lis fountain set for Lafarge” (The Tri-City News, Oct. 1). The “wow factor” for me regarding the Lafarge Lake project is how backwards the priorities can be in our community. Rather than asking for funding for a decorative fountain, why not approach the developers to help fund the Bear Aware program? This year has not been a good one for the bears with which we share our community; nine have been killed and none have been relocated. While I am glad to finally see some fines being handed out, developers play a huge role in the bear-human conflict but have not contributed one nickel to the Bear Aware program. Coun. Doug Macdonell certainly

does not speak on my behalf when he suggests that this is what makes Coquitlam residents proud. I believe public safety, responsible development and learning to co-exist with wildlife are much more important than a $50,000 fountain. I also believe that Lafarge Lake does not need to be beautified as I walk there nearly every day and am always wowed by the wildlife that lives there. Jane Thomsing, Coquitlam

AND THE MAPLE LEAF...? The Editor, So Lafarge Lake is to get a fleur-delis-shaped fountain. Wonderful! I wonder if any cities in Quebec are unveiling fountains in the shape of a maple leaf in the near future? R. Yule, Port Coquitlam

Armoured vehicle not a PoMo priority The Editor, Re. “PM Police to bring in heavyduty hardware” (The Tri-City News, Sept. 29). The article didn’t reveal whether Port Moody city council approved of the policy choice implicit in the acquisition of an armoured vehicle in part by Port Moody Police Department. In my opinion, higher priorities for city council would be: • funding a youth intervention, diversion and gang prevention program; • hiring an economic development officer to boost employment opportunities within the city; • funding an affordable rental housing program; • and free recreation centre passes for youth-at-risk.

Several Lower Mainland police departments, including Port Moody’s, will be buying an armoured vehicle such as this. An armoured vehicle careening around the city of Port Moody is the last thing I want to see. I hope PoMo city council will change this decision. Derek Wilson, Port Moody

What the flock? The flap about these birds is fundraising for a community wellness centre at New View in PoCo By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A new species of bird has been sighted in the Tri-Cities but ornithologists who’ve been scratching their heads over the flocking of large numbers of multicoloured flamingos need scratch no more. The colourful creatures have not blown in on the current of some tropical wind but were placed on prominent Tri-City properties to launch a fundraising campaign for New View Society and raise awareness about Mental Health Week Oct. 3 to 9. Campaign manager Joan Isaacs said the “flocking” is a fun way to get people thinking about the agency, which provides supports and housing for people with mental illness. She hopes people will then make a donation to help get a community wellness centre built at a 10-unit housing facility under construction at 2050 Mary Hill Rd. in Port Coquitlam. BC Housing and the federal government are providing $2.2 million for the project. Isaacs said the response to the “flocking” has been great as people throw their support behind the New View project. “People are really enthusiastic,” said Isaacs,

who said it takes almost two hours to set up the flamingos at the various locations. “I’m sure this will be an annual thing.” N e w Vi e w n e e d s about $300,000 to reduce the mortgage and finish a commercial kitchen, complete the basement, buy appliances and furnish the suites. The commercial kitchen is expected to be the heart of the building because it will provide 30 meals a day and provide job experience opportunities for New View members in a new catering business enterprise. “The kitchen would be used for job training, to [help New View members] really gain those necessary skills to get experience that can open doors for future employees,” Isaacs said. Among the 20 sites where “flocking” will take place this week are Canadian Tire in Port Coquitlam, PoCo Inn and Suites, Coquitlam fire halls, Dr. Charles Best secondary school, PoCo city hall and the offices of local politicians. Coquitlam Centre will also host a “flocking” T hursday and Friday (Oct. 7 and 8), where New View will sell bags of BlenzCares coffee beans for $16.99 each and get half the proceeds.

Mounties are looking for other sex assault victims Home-stay students alleged victims of assault Stories by Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A Coquitlam man has been charged with two counts of sexual assault and police think there may be more victims. Coquitlam RCMP said the alleged incidents

Guilty plea in a 2009 assault The young man accused of sexually assaulting a Coquitlam woman in her groundfloor apartment has pleaded guilty in New Westminster Supreme Court and will be sentenced next week. The 23-year-old victim called Coquitlam RCMP in the early morning hours of Jan. 27, 2009 to report she’d been sexually assaulted by a man who’d broken into her home. The investigation revealed a suspect matching her description of the assailant lived in an apartment across the street from her. At the time, Cpl. Peter Thiessen of the RCMP’s E Division said it was the crime lab’s quick turnaround of evidence collected at the scene that helped investigators identify and arrest the suspect in less than two weeks. Ardeshir Sazmand was arrested Feb. 5, 2009 and has remained in custody. On Monday, he pleaded guilty to sexual assault with a weapon, disguising with intent and breaking and entering with intent. He will be sentenced Oct. 15.

A little green added to Share’s grocery bags By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS

A little colour has been added to hampers handed out at Tri-City food banks this summer and fall thanks to the contributions of B.C. farmers, local gardeners and a church group. Nearly 6,000 pounds of ve g etables were delivered to the food banks run by Share Family and Community Services in July and August. The final tallies aren’t yet in but September is expected to be just as bountiful. “It’s been extremely impor tant,” Leanne Beatty said of the donations of vegetables. The fresh vegetables add some much-needed nutrients to the staples that are handed out to about 400 families a week in the Tri-Cities and Beatty said Share’s Clarke Street of fice hours in Port Moody have been extended to 7 p.m. on Mondays so people can drop off more of their garden vegetables — the fresher the better so produce is in good shape when it is handed

Local community gardens were a significant source of vegetables. At Burquitlam Community Gardens at the corner of Whiting Way and Ebert Avenue in Coquitlam, volunteers working five plots grew 1,000 pounds of vegetables for the food bank, including tomatoes, beans, potatoes, zucchini, cucumbers and cabbage.

a very good year,” said Liz Hansen, treasurer for the Burquitlam Community Gardens Society. Colony Farm Regional Park community gardeners are also producing vegetables for the food bank — more than 2,000 pounds so far. Another source of fresh fruit and veggies was the Coquitlam Far mers Market, which contributed 1,000

pounds of produce from its vendors after each Sunday market. “It’s so nourishing and the contributions have been amazing,” Beatty said. M e a n wh i l e, H o p e Lutheran Church in Port Coquitlam has figured out a way to contribute produce all year. Every Sunday, the church collects about $100 to buy produce for the food bank. Last year, Hope Lutheran raised more than $5,000, which was spent on 12,000 pounds of potatoes, onions, apples, oranges and bananas, and a spokesperson said the church is close to reach-

ing its target again this year. Beatty said the produce is an important source of nutrition for families who use the food bank. She would like to see more donations of vegetables and fruit, and encourages people to donate directly to Share at www. sharesociety.ca, purchase Buy B.C. coupons at their grocery store, which can be used to buy produce, or drop off their fresh fruits and vegetables at 2615 Clarke St. (in the rear), Port Moody. Basic, nonperishable staples are also welcome. dstrandberg@tricitynews.com

Too soon to pick SkyTrain over light rail: Watts Mayors react to premier’s pledge for line to Langley By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

Premier Gordon Campbell pledged to deliver “SkyTrain to Langley” last Friday but Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts says the option of using at-grade light-rail technology should not be ruled out. “I’d be surprised if he’s excluding any technology,” Watts said, adding she took the reference as intended to mean a rapid transit line will run to Langley, with the exact system and route to be determined by TransLink, Surrey and Langley. Officials in the premier’s office confirmed Campbell did intend to specify SkyTrain when he addressed the Union of B.C. Municipalities. “The community prefers light rail for a number of reasons,” Watts said. “You can have double the tracks for the same price as SkyTrain.” Surrey’s land mass is almost as large as Vancouver, Burnaby and Richmond combined, she said, and SkyTrain technology that might work well in those cities is less suited to the SurreyLangley extension. “When you’re looking at putting rapid transit across those kinds of kilometres, you need to be looking at all options,” Watts said. TransLink will soon launch a new round of public consultations on the routes and technologies for Surrey-area rapid transit extensions. Surrey council is also set to visit Portland, Oregon this month to study that city’s light-rail system. I n Ja nu a r y 2 0 0 8 , C a m p b e l l u nve i l e d the Provincial Transit Plan, which indicated a rapid transit extension to Guildford and then southeast to roughly 168 Street and Fraser Highway, after which a RapidBus system would run to Langley City. Campbell’s UBCM speech pledging SkyTrain to Langley and then RapidBus to Chilliwack is being taken as a commitment to take rapid transit further than previously discussed. “I was surprised to hear SkyTrain was going to come to Langley City,” said Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender and the chair of the TransLink mayors’ council. “It reflects our vision for our downtown and the fact we’ve already increased density.” But Fassbender cautioned there’s much work to be done examining the rapid transit options and

stressed TransLink and the mayors who control funding must consider the broad needs of the entire region. The 2008 plan also committed to a RapidBus network by 2020 with bus rapid transit lines running down King George Highway to White Rock, from South Surrey through

Delta to the Canada Line in Richmond, from Lougheed Station in Burnaby across the Port Mann Bridge to north Langley and then over the Golden Ears Bridge to Maple Ridge and then on to Coquitlam. The premier’s nowstated preference for SkyTrain irks light rail advocates, who say it

would preclude the use of the existing rail tracks on the old interurban corridor, which they say could launch light rail service at a modest cost. “Promising SkyTrain to Langley is not realistic,” said Rail For the Valley spokesperson John Vissers. “Does anybody in the Fraser Valley believe that’s

going to happen in their lifetime?” He said elevated or underground SkyTrain is “monolithic,” with stations that are entrenched, while at-grade light rail stops are easy to create anywhere and can even be relocated from one spot to a different one if ridership patterns change.

Vissers said he’s disappointed the premier hasn’t looked more closely at the group’s proposal to restart a modern light-rail system on the existing tracks, which he argues would attract more riders. “We’ve heard about SkyTrain and we’ve heard about rapid buses and neither of those are the future

that people in the Fraser Valley have been looking for.” The premier’s speech also committed to a line along Broadway to UBC but used the words “rapid transit” not SkyTrain, leaving open the potential for light rail or bus rapid transit there. jnagel@blackpress.ca

CRAIG HODGE/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Chantal Beaudoin left her small Moody Centre bungalow and returned two weeks later to find a larger, more wheelchair accessible home for her and her son Tyler, courtesy of the Cornerstone Home Team.

Home reno ‘a dream come true’ for PoMo family By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Two weeks ago, Chantal Beaudoin and her son, Tyler, left their Port Moody home — a cosy bungalow with walls and door frames badly damaged by her wheelchair — not knowing what the Cornerstone Home Team was planning. On Sunday, they returned to discover their home was bigger, better and, best of all — finally —accessible. “It’s just awesome,” she said Monday from her new back deck. “It’s a dream come true.” In the three years Beaudoin and 10-yearold Tyler have lived in the Moody Centre home, she has done her best to spruce things up with a coat of cheerful yellow paint, landscaping and a carefully tended vegetable garden. It has been difficult, though; in 2004, Beaudoin lost one of her legs in a train accident and, after 18 months of therapy, she’s now in a wheelchair.

The ramps in the front and back of the house were falling apart and the roof over the back deck looked ready to cave in with the next snowfall. Inside, Beaudoin had improved the kitchen with new cabinets but had difficulty using the too-high sink and the stove — its knobs were at the back and she often burned her arms as she reached up to change the heat. Doing laundry with stacked machines was particularly difficult, as was just getting in and out of the home’s lone bathroom. But the house had more serious issues lurking. With a 55-year-old oil heater, Beaudoin spent more than $4,000 a year on heating. An outside wall was rotting and had no insulation. The foundation was cracking and, just three weeks ago, the water main broke. Russ McCann of the Cornerstone Home Team, the Cor nerstone Seventh Day Adventist Church’s community outreach group, said Beaudoin’s positive attitude led it to choose her for its fourth annual home

renovation project. “She really inspired us with her cheerfulness and her willingness to step in and try to make the house better,” he said on day two of the project. At that point, the house was gutted and a huge hole was being dug for an addition that would bring the home from 900 to about 1,700 sq. ft. “We might have bitten off more than we can chew,” McCann admitted, “but it’s not easy to make it wheelchair-friendly without an addition. It might come back to bite us in the end.” It didn’t. Dozens of volunteers made sure of that, starting with McCann of Weatherguard Gutters and Langley’s Mitch Misyk of MTL Construction, who brought in an architect and numerous tradespeople to build the addition. A woman donated paint and her daughter used the colours to create original artwork

for Beaudoin’s expansive new master bedroom. A 92-year-old neighbour of Beaudoin’s replaced her old bird feeders with ones he’d made himself. Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s horticulture students saved Beaudoin’s plants and landscaped the front and back yards. A security company wired the home and added special touches like outdoor speakers. Much of Beaudoin’s furniture was retained and treasured photos of a trip to Mexico were hung in the hallway; her son’s framed artwork is at the entrance to Beaudoin’s bedroom. “I feel like a princess,” she beamed, touring through the new home, complete with a new furnace and front-loading washer and dryer, a new stove and lowered kitchen sink — and a hot tub. “It’s been an emotional roller coaster ride... but I’m just so thankful.” • Visit www.cornerstonehometeam.org for more information. spayne@tricitynews.com

Hearing voices of the homeless A GOOD READ Teresa Rehman Oct. 10 to 16 is Homelessness Action Week in British Columbia. Recent figures show that there are approximately 170 homeless people now living in the Tri-Cities.

T

he homeless, who are often disconnected from society and community, can seem voiceless in Canada. But when it comes to telling life stories, we know that those who frequent the Tri-Cities’ libraries are more than willing to share their narratives with staff and patrons. This column features stories of the homeless — not third-person research or documentation, which is vital to their plight — but personal stories of the homeless in their own voices. In Land of the Lost Souls: My Life on the Streets, Cadillac Man

writes: “I ain’t no scholar. I ain’t no bum. I have never been good in grammar, so there will be misspellings and perhaps some passages that make no sense to you. But, hey, I’m a street person, not a Rhodes Scholar. You’ll see vulgar language, nudity, street jargon, romance, etc. These are my people, my friends, my enemies. I have changed their names, for some are still alive somewhere. I hope not to embarrass or shame them. Others who died (so many), I’ll use their real street names to im-

mortalize them so they can be remembered. This is my story, their story.” This is an incredible memoir, written in a series of spiral-bound notebooks during 14 years that Cadillac Man lived on the streets of New York. In a gritty, poignant and humorous voice, Cadillac brings to life the people who populate his New York. “I saw a sickle moon slice through the September clouds as my left eyelid cracked open, then clamped shut again. ‘Where are we going?’ My voice purred with the powerful effects of the drug injected an hour or so ago in the Esso men’s room on Centre Street.” So begins Snow Bodies: One Woman’s Life on the Streets by Elizabeth Hudson, a timely memoir of her years spent as a heroin addict and prostitute on the streets of Calgary and Vancouver in the early 1970s. Hers is a heartbreaking story of addiction, sex, violence and,

finally, the courageous triumph of an unbreakable human spirit. Born in Halifax and raised in England, Montreal and Campbellton, N.B., Hudson attended Mount Royal College, where she was awarded the Lorraine Hill Award and George Kirby Scholarship. Her poems and articles have been published in numerous books and magazines, including Maclean’s. Hudson’s two sons have both graduated from university and she now lives in the suburbs with her husband, three dogs and a cat. In the epilogue of Under the Viaduct: Homeless in Beautiful BC, C Sheila Baxter writes: “This book I have written on homelessness is just the tip of the iceberg. These stories, interviews, observations are an intimate look at homelessness. People in this book are real, not just statistics. They are as I see them and hear them; their thoughts are unedited by me. Their

voices are their own. It’s a patchwork of all colours, sizes and depths. I’ve put them together in this book the same way you quilt a quilt. This is not a scientific study, just the simple truth as it happens.”

On the run for diabetes A Coquitlam man with Type 1 diabetes will scale a volcano in Costa Rica next year to build awareness and raise money for the disorder he shares with three million Canadians. The international adventure will be the second for Bruce Sarvis, who recently took part in the Fire and Ice Marathon in Iceland with 62 members of Team Diabetes Canada. They garnered $445,000 for the Canadian Diabetes Association — $6,160 from Sarvis. Sarvis said he wants to at least match his fundraising efforts for the South American event, which happens next May and involves hiking the Rincon de la Viega national park. As part of his drive, Sarvis designed a logo to represent Canadian diabetics; he’s covering the costs for materials and donating all the money from the sale of the vinyl decals to the association. “I know, first hand, the many challenges and struggles that come

22 Tri-City News Wednesday, October 6, 2010

Life on the streets, from Vancouver to London and Paris continued from page 19 This book is interesting and useful for several reasons. Not only does it document testimonials of Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homeless, whom the author interviewed, but it presents strategies to combat this social problem. Interspersed among stories of the homeless is Baxterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s careful and timely research about life under the viaduct, complete with history, data, photographs, statistics and services. Baxter is a poet, educator and author of five books on poverty and homelessness. Still active in her fight for the homelessness, Baxter is currently involved with the Vancouver City-Wide Housing Coalition. One of my favourite books by far is Down and Out in Paris and London, published in 1933 and the first full-length work by George

Orwell. This non-fictional account â&#x20AC;&#x201D; moving and comic at the same time â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is a story in two parts on the theme of poverty in the two cities. The first part is a picaresque account of living on the bread-line in Paris, and the experience of casual labour in restaurant kitchens. The second part is a travelogue of life on the road in and around London from the trampâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective, with descriptions of the types of hostel accommodation available and some of the characters to be found living on the margins. What interested me most was the way the homeless were kept permanently on the move in the English countryside. As early as 1652, workhouses had been established to accommodate the homeless in a variety of ways. Law required that each homeless person would be entitled by law to a warm bed and an evening meal for one night. Each workhouse had a

separate building, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;spikeâ&#x20AC;? where tramps were given a bath on arrival, a meal of bread, margarine, cheese and cocoa or the like, and a blanket, then were ushered to a cell to sleep. After breakfast, and some paid or unpaid work for his keep, the tramp would be forced to walk to the next spike in the next town. This way, the homeless could not congregate in any one part of the country but were always kept on the move. The Road to Wigan Pier (published in 1937) is yet another chronicle describing the bleak living conditions of the poor working class in the industrial north of England, prior to the Second World War. Street Stories: 100 years of Homelessness in Vancouver has text by Michael Barnholden and Nancy Newman with photographs by Lindsay Mearns. Beautiful black and white photographs accompany the subjectsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; short

biographies, hopes and aspirations. Also presented is a comprehensive and succinct documentation of the history and political implications of the homeless issue Vancouver. Short, interesting and easy to read. The following are other notable mentions on the subject of homelessness by Canadian authors: â&#x20AC;˘ Queen of the Nomads: My Journey to Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tent City by Zofia Kiefer; â&#x20AC;˘ The Door is Open: Memoir of a Soup Kitchen Volunteer by Bart Campbell; â&#x20AC;˘ All our Sisters: Stories of Homeless Women in Canada by Susan Scott; â&#x20AC;˘ Stanley Park by Timothy Taylor. A Good Read is a column by Tri-City librarians that is published every Wednesday. Teresa Rehman is community services librarian at Coquitlam Public Library.

‘Spectral’ and scary in 500 words Look, spiders In the annual Scary Story Contest for Tri-City teen writers, entrants’ goal is quite simple: to frighten the judges. Shock them. Terrify them. Give them chills. Use all the writerly tricks you know but, above all, be original. Stories that are unlike any others will carry the day, and the night, and the cursed hours in between. Sponsored by Coquitlam Public Library, Port Moody Public Library and The Tri-City News, the contest challenges writers in two age categories — 11 to 14 years and 15 to 18 years — to create the most frightening short story.

Winners will receive valuable prizes and some will be published in The News. First, the rules: Only residents of Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Anmore and Belcarra are eligible. Stories must be no longer than 500 words, and must include the following terms: • pestilent; • dilapidated; • and spectral. Each writer must include his or her name, age, phone number and city of residence with his or her entry, which must be emailed inline or as a Microsoft

Fall forests are full of spiders but don’t be afraid — instead, look closer to see what makes these creatures so fascinating. Families with children age six and older can join a Metro Vancouver park interpreter at Spying on Spiders Saturday, Oct. 16 from 10 a.m. to noon at Belcarra Regional Park. From orb weavers to jumping spiders, participants will learn how to identify the different types of spiders. They’ll examine the artistry of web making and watch the life-and death struggle that takes place among the sticky strands. Call 604-432-6359 to register. Cost is $8 per person for adults, $4.25 for children, youths and seniors, or $21.25 per family. Advance registration is required. To find out about other Metro Vancouver programs visit the events calendar at www.metrovancouver.org.

Word attachment to scarystorycontest2010@gmail.com no later than the witching hour — midnight — on Tuesday, Oct. 19. Full contest rules are online at the websites of Coquitlam Public Library (www.library.coquitlam. bc.ca) and Port Moody Public Library (www.library.portmoody.ca). Winners in each age category will receive prizes valued at $75 (first), $50 (second) and $25 (third). Some will also be published in The Tri-City News.

Vagaries of veggies CONTINUING ADVENTURES Naomi Yorke

W

hen you go into a restaurant and order something from the vegetarian menu, you trust that what you will be ordering is truly vegetarian fare. But there is some blind faith involved. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t duck into the kitchen and inspect the utensils and the pans; you can only hope that vegetarian truly means vegetarian. Last weekend, I had a Facebook message from my mom, who has been a vegetarian since she was 14 years old. She was out with friends in a nice restaurant in a trendy part of Hong Kong. She ordered off the vegetarian menu and trusted that, as usual, she would get a vegetarian meal. (In Asia they make amazing fake meat.) So initially, she did not suspect anything was awry when she chomped into some tofu. Then after a couple of bites, she experienced a twinge of horror: Is this fake meat really real? She sent it back to the kitchen to find out that indeed this was not a vegetarian burrito but a chicken burrito. Her faith in humanity, or at least the restaurant, was shattered. The owner of the restaurant offered her a new meal on the house and free dessert for the table. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make up for the error and the gut ache that followed. I am a vegetarian, too, and, for the most part, I trust the labels and the menus when they say vegetarian. Honestly, it is not that hard to be a vegetarian and to order out in most parts of the world. There is a pretty global understanding that vegetarian means absolutely no meat. Of course there are situations that you can encounter

Social Room in PM

where people think vegetarian means â&#x20AC;&#x153;just a little meat.â&#x20AC;? So how far does a person go to ensure their meal is truly vegetarian? When you are at your favourite sandwich bar, is it fair to request that the sandwich artist change his or her gloves after pushing grilled (and dripping) bacon into the sandwich before yours? I think so. But there is always this underlying concern that you could be offending someone when you make a request like this. It is never OK, or wise, to be aggressive or rude with a food handler but I think that a polite reminder that you are a vegetarian and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Could you please change your [bacon-soaked] gloves?â&#x20AC;? is an appropriate request. My momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little Facebook alarm message made me think. How much meat does a â&#x20AC;&#x153;vegetarianâ&#x20AC;? actually consume in their day-to-day life? If you have a little organic farm and you prepare all of your own food, you would know with certainty what you are eating and where your food comes from. But for the rest of us living buy urban and suburban lives that can involve take-out lunches and restaurant meals, how much do we really know about where are food comes from? How much control do any of us really have about what goes into our bodies? We can read those labels and order from the special menus and place special requests but there is always that leap of faith involved. There is always a chance that there could be a slip-up. I am not going to give up now and stop being a vegetarian, nor I am suggesting anyone should. You have to be true to your principles and do your best to monitor everything you consume. But there will be slips and you just have to get back on the tofu horse. Naomi Yorke is a Port Coquitlam woman who now lives in Chicago, where sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attending art school.

Swimmers were in short supply in the chilly waters of Sasamat Lake on Sept. 26 but scuba divers from the Langley Dive Club weren’t deterred as they dove to the lake’s bottom to collect trash left there. Among the items found at the bottom of Sasamat were sunglasses, watches and even cellphones.

Call Chinda today!

Forty volunteer scuba divers splashed into Sasamat Lake last week and removed hundreds of cans and bottles, sunglasses, cellphones and watches from the bottom. This is the third year the Langley Dive Club has done the clean-up. Sasamat Lake was chosen because of its close proximity to Langley and because of its reputation among divers as “dirty.” “F rom other divers using Sasamat, it is known to have lots of garbage on the bottom,” said Les Newman, ow n e r o f L a n g l e y Diving, which sponsors the club. Divers entered the water shortly after 9 a.m. Sept. 26 armed with onion sacks to fill with bottles, cans and other garbage that had been discarded in the lake. By noon, the teams had removed a large amount of trash from the lake bottom. “It just goes to show how careless and ignorant people have become,” said one of the divers, Mariah Van Nus, 17, from Delta. “This lake is a natural resource.” – Matthew Bossons

But the tween and teen years aren’t far away, and that’s when I remember being embarrassed by my parents on a regular basis. I can’t imagine what it would have been like if one of them made a living writing about our life together. That awkward age was challenging enough without having my experiences shouted out from the rooftops. But, like they do now, my kids will have their own voice and veto powers in what gets shared and what doesn’t. Meanwhile, I will continue to enjoy the endless supply of material they provide just by living our ordinary, everyday lives.

After I promised, she asked me something so hilarious that I’m sure I would have used it if she’d been okay with it. She must have known that as well. The kids have caught on to what makes good material and have even suggested on occasion that I jot something down so I could write about it later. Like every parent who talks about their kids and tells stories about them from time to time, I do the same - I just happen to tell a lot of people. For this reason I’ve always shared my

He had a big smile on his face and seemed proud to be a part of my work, but as soon as we were alone I asked him what he really thought about me using the material he and his sister provided me in my writing. “I like it,” he said. “We tell

ArtsConnect board member and Douglas College instructor Jillian Hull, with student Jenn Markham, prepare for the second Swap-ORama-Rama event at Douglas College Oct. 23, where participants can “re-artivate” their clothes, make something new and create a Halloween costume. JENNIFER GAUTHIER THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Swap your ‘junk’ for funk By Sarah Payne THE TRI-CITY NEWS

It was such a hit in March that devotees of the creative swap fest known as Swap-O-Rama-Rama begged organizers not to make them wait another year. ArtsConnect and Douglas College took notice and are hosting the second not-so-annual “re-funk your junk” event Oct. 23 — just in time for individuals and families to come out and craft their Halloween costumes, a handbag, dress, hat or anything else that inspires them. “The point is that you bring in good stuff that you don’t want anymore, and so does everyone else, and in the mix you work with artists who can help you repurpose things,” said Jillian Hull, an ArtsConnect board member and Douglas College instructor who’s helping to spearhead the event. The March event drew 300 to 500 people throughout the day, she estimated, giving participants numerous opportunities to discover new-to-them ar-

ticles of clothing that could be transformed with some cutting and sewing, silkscreening, embroidery or accessorizing. All the necessary equipment, from sewing machines to scissors, thread and more, is supplied by sponsors like Port Coquitlam’s Sundrop Textiles. Waiting at each station will be artists and experts to help with ideas, inspiration and technical advice, so there’s no need to feel limited by a lack of sewing experience. Some of the hits of the first Swap-O-Rama-Rama included a messenger-style bag recrafted from a leather jacket and a dress spruced up with the trim from a hat. “It has the feeling of an old-fashioned quilting bee — this creative hush comes over the room,” Hull said, noting the process of finding a “new” article of clothing and making it your own brings an infectious energy to the crowd. Her 13-year-old daughter captured that energy in a video posted on YouTube (search Swap-O-RamaRama and ArtsConnect).

“The best part of the event is when it gets going and the creativity starts to happen and it just has this snowball effect,” added student volunteer Jenn Markham. Her usual artistic outlet is in scrapbooking and making cards, but Markham said with plenty of sewing whizzes on hand it was easy to get started. The reduce/reuse/recycle theme behind the worldwide phenomena that is Swap-O-Rama-Rama appeals to a wide range of people, Hull said, with the first event in Coquitlam drawing people from throughout the Lower Mainland. “It’s hard to explain how great it is because it’s not just stuff that’s being recirculated, it’s the talent, too,” she added. “People were so generous with their creativity and time.” • Swap-O-Rama-Rama runs Saturday, Oct. 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Douglas College on Pinetree Way. Admission is $2/student, $4/individual or $6/ family, plus a bag of clean, used clothes. Visit www. swaporamarama.org for more information. spayne@tricitynews.com

New director at Place des Arts Place des Arts’ board of directors has named Joan Roberts as the centre’s new executive director. Roberts, a classically trained dancer, worked as Place’s first programmer since moving here from Ontario in the early 1990s. She’s also been the organizations events coordinator and communications coordinator, and has served as the interim executive director for the past two years. “My passion is working with creative people in a creative environment, so I feel very at home here,” Roberts said in a release. In other Place des Arts news: • Manitoba native James McCann joins Place des Arts to lead creative writing classes for kids aged nine to 12 and youth aged 13 to 16. Much of McCann’s teenage years were spent

reading comics and playing Dungeons and Dragons, hobbies that taught him the storytelling tools that he now uses as an author and instructor. • Violinist Roger Mangas and pianist Monica Pfau kick off Place des Arts’ 2010-11 faculty concert season with “A Celebration of Czech Music II” on Oct. 16 at 7:30 p.m. The couple will perform an array of musical gems from the Czech and Slovak Republics, ranging from pieces by well-known masters to rediscovered treasures by less familiar composers. Included in the repertoire are Antonin Dvorák’s Romantic Pieces, Leoš Janácek’s Dumka, Jan Foerster’s Ballad and more. All works are composed for violin and piano.

Looking for an artist? How about a choir, a photographer or a dance school? Look no further than ArtsConnect’s new online cultural directory, a simple and easy-to-use vault of information on the TriCities’ artists and organizations. ArtsConnect executive director Helen Daniels said the online info came from a need to update the book directory the group had done several years ago. “ We s aw t h e value of it and wanted to do it again... and knew online was the way to go,” she said. “We’re a resource for the community and this helps the community find information.” D e t a i l s we r e taken from the listings that were already on Ar tsConnect’s website and divided into several categories, including music, theatre, visual arts, graphic design, funding and many more. And now ArtsConnect wants artists and groups who aren’t already on the site to log on and self-register — expanding the site and their own exposure. “ I t ’s a wo rk in prog ress,” Daniels said, noting they’re still deciding on the best way to highlight local events. “The next phase is a map function so if you wanted to find the closest dance school to where you live, you’d be able to find that.” To find your way around the Tri-Cities’ arts and culture scene visit www.artsconnect. ca and click on the cultural directory icon.

Tough times give Milino new material

Place des Arts

we inspire the artist in everyone!

By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

There are three months left in 2010 and Rocky Milino Jr. is admittedly a tad nervous. This past year hasn’t been exactly stable, filled with break-ups, deaths and family drama that have caused a lot of unwelcome stress and anxiety in the Port Moody musician’s life. Still, the turbulence has also given Milino plenty of fodder to fill his two-year songwriting hole. “As soon as everything let go, it made sense and I just couldn’t stop,” he said. This summer, Milino forced himself to put pen to paper and write two songs with bandmate Nate Cavalli of Cause4Drama. They cut “Rockstar” and “Naughty All Night” at Mushroom Studios in Vancouver in June. His producer Jeff Dawson — of Daniel Powter and State of Shock fame — encouraged Milino to do more and release a CD. Out of their union came three additional tunes in August: “Too Strong,” “Anything” and “Burn.” “We just cranked them out. The wheels were turning and we just wanted to keep doing more and be in that zone, really focused,” he said. The CD, titled Burn Burn Burn, Milino’s sixth release, went up last week on iTunes. Milino is reflective of the latest work, given his roller coaster year. “I think they are the most truest lyrics I’ve written,” he said during an hour-long interview at a Port Moody cafe. “They’re simple and honest and I look at every single one and I feel there’s a message buried in them. I guess, sometimes, you have to go through some pain before you see the light.” At 28, Milino is ready to turn the page, concentrate on his music and promote it around B.C. and Alberta; a tour is planned this spring with Cause4Drama, which includes guitarist Cavalli,

Port Moody resident Rocky Milino Jr. released his sixth CD, Burn Burn Burn, with his band Cause4Drama. drummer Brian Tansley and Chris Nagle on bass. In between, the Archbishop Carney graduate keeps busy with his day job as a diesel mechanic, boxing and nighttime gigs. On Nov. 9, the band plays the Roxy in Vancouver and it has several other dates lined up over the next few months at the John B. Pub in Coquitlam and at Rusty’s in Cloverdale. Having performed since 12, the stage has always been where Milino has found the most peace. But the studio is where he’s pushed the envelope. Listen to his CDs from the start and you can hear his sound progress from the blues (No Admittance Under 19) 9 to pop (Alyson Is An Alien) and now, just plain rock ‘n’ roll. Also peppered between his musical journey were Trying 2B Someone (2001); The Green Discc (2005); and Disco Amarillo (2006). Overall, Milino’s glad to have his creative juices flowing again. “I’m in a really good place right now and I’m happy with the way things are going in my life. Let’s just hope it stays that way for the rest of the year.”

Panthers overcome weak start By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

T he Por t Moody Black Panthers might want to consider highlighting the start times on their locker room schedule. The junior B hockey squad did not look ready to play until the second period in both of its weekend bouts, forcing the team to overcome early goal deficits. But despite the sluggish starts the Black Panthers managed to end its threegame losing skid with a pair of victories over the RidgeMeadows Flames on Friday and against the Delta Icehawks on Saturday. Port Moody got into some penalty trouble early in its RidgeMeadows matchup, surrendering the first goal during and early Flames power play. Panthers forward Mico Dragntinovic managed to tie the g ame a shor t-time later on a feed from Timothy Colsh and James Benz, however the team let in two more to make it 3-1 Flames by the end of

the first. But in the second period it was the Ridge-Meadows squad that ran into penalty trouble and the Black Panthers were able to turn the game around. Benz scored the team’s second marker of the game, followed by a power play goal from Ryan Panichelli to tie the game. The team managed to pour some more offence on the Flames with goals from firststar of the game forward Cameron Lawson and Brandon Millin, both on the power play. Port Moody goalie Pierre Voyter stopped 26 shots in the 5-4 victory, while the team went three-for-five with the man advantage. On Saturday the Black Panthers struggled early, allowing two unanswered goals in the opening frame. But in the third period goals from Chris Stew, Panichelli and Millin helped the Cats take a 3-2 lead, which they managed to hang onto until the end of the game. sports@tricitynews.com

Anemic power play costs Coq. Express By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS

CRAIG HODGE/THE TRI-CITY NEWS

The Coquitlam Express have been solid on the power play in the early part of this season, however their special teams abilities were not on display on Saturday night.

The Coquitlam Express may have the third best power play in the BCHL but the squad’s man-advantage prowess was not on display Saturday night against the Langley Chiefs. The home team went zero-forfive with the man advantage while getting burned three times shorthanded in front of a crowd of 743 hockey fans at the Coquitlam Sports Centre. The Express got off to a good start with a goal from Garrick Perry off a feed from Matt Mazzarolo. Jason Grecica also scored, with Perry and Massimo Lamacchia notching the assists. But neither team was able to take the lead at the end of the first period after Langley scored a couple of their own tallies from Mason

Blacklock and Josh Myers. Coquitlam’s scoring dried up in the second and third period as the team ran into penalty trouble. Langley’s Matt Ius and Trevor Gerling both managed to notch power play goals in the second half of the game to take a 4-2 win over the Coquitlam squad. Coquitlam goalie Luke Hernandez stopped 20 out of 24 shots in the loss. Khaleed Devji stopped the lone shot he faced after relieving the starting goalie with 10 minutes left in the game. Galley earned first-star honours for his work with the Chiefs while Perry received the second star of the game for Coquitlam. The team will next play Surrey at the Coquitlam Sports Centre at 7 p.m. on Friday followed by a road game rematch against Langley on Saturday. sports@tricitynews.com
