Mayors OK gas tax hike ‘leap of faith’ Money will go to build the Evergreen Line By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS
A fill-up in Metro Vancouver will cost motorists an extra two cents a litre in TransLink tax starting next April. Sixteen mayors approved TransLink’s supplemental plan Friday by an 81-34 population-weighted vote — a 70% majority. It ensures the long-stalled Evergreen Line to Coquitlam will finally be built and delivers a variety of other transit upgrades across the region, partly funded through the gas tax increase. But more new fees targeting drivers could be on the way, such as an annual vehicle levy or road pricing, as a result of the vote. At least that’s what most mayors hope happens. see ‘WE HAVE A YEAR’,, page 3
Applications in to run planned Gordon shelter Province and city will review proposals By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS

Seven groups vying to run Coquitlam’s new homeless shelter will have to wait until the end of the year to find out if they’re successful. The application process closed last week for organizations wanting to operate the shelter and transitional housing facility planned for 3030 Gordon Ave., located behind Christmas Way. And soon, representatives from BC Housing, the city of Coquitlam and the Tri-Cities’ Homelessness Task Force will meet to sift through the bids and decide on a winner. see FUNDING NOT ASSURED ASSURED,, page 4

‘We have a year’: Watts www.tricitynews.com
continued from front page
The Metro cities and the province are now committed to try to negotiate various new sources for TransLink to cover nearly half of the extra $70 million per year required to fund the transit expansion plan. It’s a big leap of faith for the mayors, who are trusting that Victoria will deliver and not leave them in the lurch once again. If the province gets cold feet or otherwise refuses to sign off on new sources, a $23 average property tax increase takes effect instead. “This is not the end of the road — this is the beginning of the road to the solution,” Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender said. Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said a “fair tolling policy” must be part of the debate to end the inequity of some Metro residents paying more in tolls than others. “We have a year,” Watts said. “If we can’t do this in a year, I think we should all just walk away from the table. If for whatever reason it fails, I will not be sitting at this table.” Approval was assured because Surrey and Vancouver had enough weighted votes to pass the plan with only a few other cities on board. Six mayors opposed the

Port Moody Mayor Joe Trasolini said his city will reverse a development freeze when the Evergreen Line advances. plan: Burnaby’s Derek Corrigan, Richmond’s Malcolm Brodie, Delta’s Lois Jackson, Langley Township’s Rick Green, Pitt Meadows’ Don M a c L e a n a n d N ew Westminster’s Wayne Wright. Langley Township’s Green said residents of communities south of the Fraser River are under-served by transit and tapped out on what they can pay. “I’m hearing it loud and clear,” he said. “People have just had enough.” MacLean warned the fall-back property tax increase, if used, will not be temporary but will stay in place forever because rescinding it would trigger drastic transit service cuts. Several mayors predicted Victoria will back out and refuse to grant new sources — especially ones sure to be contentious as the next provincial election nears — leaving them stuck with the unwanted property tax.
“Can you imagine how difficult a road pricing debate is going to be and how divisive that is going to be in our region?” Brodie asked. “I’m afraid I don’t have that kind of faith,” Delta’s Jackson added. TransLink has tried to get on sustainable financial footing before. It had the green light to impose a $75 per vehicle levy in 2000 but the then-opposition BC Liberals fought it and the NDP government scrapped it in a bid to shore up votes. M o r e r e c e n t l y, TransLink adopted a parking stall tax but the BC Liberal government decided it was unacceptable and killed it amid a governance overhaul that took TransLink control away from the elected reps. Some mayors, such as Brodie, wanted to approve just the two-cent gas tax for the $1.4-billion Evergreen Line, chop the other spending in the plan and avoid the risk of a property
“not impossible.” He says in the report (available at www.translinkcommission.org under What’s New) that he didn’t have enough data from TransLink to provide a thorough analysis but he’s doubtful such a ridership boost could be accomplished so soon along what he called a low-density corridor. “This appears optimistic given that it is recognized that the primary role of the Evergreen Line is to shape land use in a relatively low-density sector of the region,” he wrote. And if ridership numbers don’t meet projections, revenue could
fall — and even a 25% drop in projected “new” ridership could result in a loss of $28 million in fare revenue over six years. Meanwhile, the city of Coquitlam is in negotiations with the province over a proposed Lincoln station near Town Centre that would have the desired effect of boosting density to support ridership. “The whole idea is to densify the Tri-Cities and to build in the TriCities so we increase the ridership,” said Maurice Gravelle, Coquitlam’s general manager of strategic initiatives. He said he couldn’t be more detailed about negotia-
tax hike. But others said they couldn’t support an Evergreen-only solution — nor was it possible because mayors had no power to amend the plan crafted by TransLink’s unelected board. Changes to the governance structure giving cities more control of the spending priorities is a key demand of the mayors. Corrigan said the province will only grant real reform if the mayors take a stand and freeze the flow of new cash to TransLink. The provincial government still has to pass legislation this month enabling the TransLink gas tax increase from a current 15 cents a litre to 17 cents next spring. As soon as the increase is legislated, the province is expected to move quickly to issue a request for proposals for the Evergreen Line — likely before the end of the year — setting the stage for a construction start next year. A jubilant Mayor Joe Trasolini of Port Moody said his city will reverse a development freeze as soon as the project advances. T h e a p p r ov a l o f TransLink’s $400-million share of Evergreen Line costs also secures more than $1 billion in federal and provincial contributions. email@example.com

Health day to cover Report questions ridership nos. a variety of issues Projections are ‘optimistic’
By Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
As Metro Vancouver mayors voted Friday on a plan to boost gas taxes and possibly bump property taxes to pay for transit improvements, a re por t sug g ested Evergreen Line revenue projections may be overly optimistic. The analysis by transportation commissioner Martin Crilly says ridership projections of increases between 65% and 70% in six years after opening are “somewhat optimistic,” although
tions because they are confidential. Cur rent funding provides for six stations: Lougheed Town Centre in Burnaby (at the current Millennium Line Sk yT rain station), Burquitlam in Coquitlam, the West Coast Express and Ioco Road in Port Moody, Coquitlam Central station and Douglas College. All have been chosen because they are close to homes, workplaces and transit. In addition to a station at Lincoln, two more stations have yet to be confirmed: West Port Moody and Falcon Drive in Coquitlam. firstname.lastname@example.org

The replacement for B.C.’s CareCard will provide online access to medical records, and may also be used to confirm B.C. residence and age while keeping other information private. Health Minister Mike de Jong announced the new “smart card” plan in May, saying it will also offer the option of doubling as a driver’s licence. The government is phasing out the existing CareCard, mainly because there are 9.1 million cards in circulation and only 4.5 million residents eligible for the Medical Services Plan. The new cards will have a picture and an electronic chip, and be renewable every five years. Labour, Citizen Services and Open Government Minister Margaret MacDiarmid said the government hopes to start issuing them in 2012. Amendments to the information and privacy law now before the legislature would allow secure online access by residents and authorized medical professionals, for prescriptions, lab test results and other health records. They may also be used to confirm student status or whether a resident is 19 or over, without releasing other personal information. firstname.lastname@example.org

Two more groups have pulled out of the Missing Women Inquiry, citing the provincial government’s refusal to pay for lawyers. Amnesty International and the BC Civil Liberties Association (BCCLA) said last week they would not participate in hearings, which began yesterday in Vancouver. Several other public interest groups representing women or aboriginals that had been granted standing before the inquiry previously refused to participate. Critics say lawyers must be provided for groups representing vulnerable women if they are to put tough questions to police and government officials on why it took so long to catch serial killer Robert Pickton of Port Coquitlam. Otherwise, they say, the inquiry is stacked in favour of the authorities, which will be well-defended by publicly funded lawyers when called to testify. “This Commission of Inquiry is grappling with critical concerns about access to justice and human rights protection for some of the most mar-
ginalized communities in the provi n c e, ” A m n e s t y International Canada representative Alex Neve said. “But it is going forward in a manner that only adds to that longstanding ROBERT PICKTON sense of exclusion and discrimination.” Neve said the organization could not stay on board and send the signal it supports the process. “We are going to dedicate our efforts to processes where calls for respect and voices of concern can be heard,” added Robert Holmes, lawyer with the BCCLA. Commissioner Wally Oppal had fought for increased funding from Victoria but was unsuccessful. The inquiry ended up reshuffling its budget to hire four lawyers to represent various interests, a move opponents call inadequate. The government has “lavished all its resources on one side — that of the police and bureaucrats,” Holmes said. Some of the families and friends of Pickton’s victims are worried the inquiry will be hampered in its search for answers. firstname.lastname@example.org

A few bucks will be left over Exact amount of PoCo surplus is not yet known By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
T he city of Por t Coquitlam is expected to have a few extra dollars in its coffers by year’s end than what was budgeted. According to a city staff report, the municipality is projecting an estimated $880,000 surplus, with higher than expected revenues and several key departments coming in under budget. Mindy Smith, PoCo’s director of corporate services, cautioned that the number is an estimate, and the true amount of surplus will not be known until the new year. Council will decide how the money is spent but using the funds to reduce taxes will likely not be an option, she said. “Surplus is one-time money and is not used in the budget to reduce tax rates because the funding source is not sustainable,” she said in an email. “Each year following the completion of the city annual audit, the actual surplus is calculated and council de-
termines how the funds will be used.” The annual audit is conducted in the spring. According to a PoCo staff report, the city is expecting $451,000 more in revenues by year end than what was previously budgeted. The extra money is attributed to the timing of several large construction projects, particularly in the Dominion
Triangle, which pay development cost charges to the city. Economic conditions and other city operations can lead to budget variances, the report states, adding that the extra $451,000 is about 0.4% of the city’s overall revenue. Engineering services was the only department projected to exceed its budget, coming
in $61,000, or 1%, over due to the increased expenditures required to accompany the new development in the city. T he city of Por t Coquitlam is currently preparing its 2012-2016 financial plan and the public can comment on a survey the municipality is conducting on its website (www.portcoquitlam.ca).

Braidwood still in jail on gun charges By Gary McKenna THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Former Canadian Football League player Adam Braidwood, who was arrested on gun charges last month during the Terry Fox Hometown Run in Port Coquitlam, will remain behind bars for at least another week. Braidwood’s lawyer, Kris Pechet, said there is a possibility bail will be discussed at a scheduled Oct. 19 hearing but added the case is complicated due to his client’s outstanding legal issues in Alberta. If Braidwood were to make bail in B.C., Pechet said, there is a possibility he has breached bail conditions set out by the Alberta Crown dealing with his previous arrests. “No matter what happens with bail in British Columbia, he is subject to being taken back to Alberta,” Pechet said. “The Alberta Crown could make an application to cancel his bail. It is unknown whether or when that will be done.” Braidwood was taken into custody Sept. 25 after a Coquitlam RCMP officer who was directing traffic for the Terry Fox Hometown Run was confronted by a many carrying what was believed to be a gun. Police discovered bullet holes inside a nearby home and said the 28-year-old is facing several weapons charges.
His previous legal troubles date back to November 2010 in Alberta, when witnesses reported seeing an injured man being stuffed into the trunk of a car. Braidwood was charged with forcible confinement and aggravated assault. While on bail, he again had a run-in with police that led to charges of domestic assault, uttering threats and weapons offences. Pechet, who was Braidwood’s high school football coach at Seaquam secondary school in North Delta, said his client is doing well given his circumstances. “He is doing OK,” Pechet said. “He is concerned, of course. He is concerned for the impact this is having on his family and his friends. He is more concerned about them than he is about himself.” Braidwood will remain at the North Fraser Pre-trial Centre in PoCo until his next hearing. The former Washington State football product was drafted first overall in the 2006 CFL Canadian draft but was released by the Eskimos in April because of his legal issues. He was Edmonton’s nominee for the Outstanding Rookie award in 2006 but a knee injury forced him to sit out the 2008 and 2009 season. gmckenna@ tricitynews.com

They swayed, sashayed and salsa’d across the stage at the Red Robinson Show Theatre Saturday evening. And in the end, the second annual Dancing With Our Stars fundraiser collected more than $12,000 for the Crossroads Hospice Society. “It was a phenomenal event,” said DWOS organizer Dee Parry, a Tri-City News sales rep. “The entertainment was outstanding. The dancing was absolutely incredible. We couldn’t have asked for anything more.” The trophy for best overall dancer went to Dan Stroup (above left, with dancing partner Barbara Lynn Copp), a Port Coquitlam resident and assistant coach with the Washington Stealth of the National Lacrosse League, while Kent Magnuson (above right, with partner Brooke Foster), general sales manager for PoCo’s Metro Ford Motors, collected the best technical dancing prize. Other business and civic leaders who showed off their talents that night were Janine Davies, Diana Dilworth, Bob Lee, Scott Masse, Danielle McLellan, Kyle O’Genski and Selina Robinson — three of whom are running for office in the Nov. 19 civic elections locally: Dilworth for Port Moody council; Lee for PoCo school trustee; and Robinson for Coquitlam council.

THE BEST-SELLING PASSENGER CAR BRAND IN CANADA.∏
A spokesperson with B.C.’s Ministry of Housing declined to name the groups that filled out the paperwork but last month, Rob Thiessen of the Hope For Freedom Society, which has outreach programs for the homeless in the Tri-Cities, told The Tri-City Newss his group would be among the applicants. The proposal evaluation will happen in three stages, the ministry spokesperson said, and in the final assessment, the bids will be rated on a five-point system; as well, BC Housing may request interviews with the shortlisted candidates. Although capital funding for 3030 Gordon has still not been announced, “the province is committed to working with the city to develop the shelter and fund the construction of this facility,” the spokesperson said via an email. “We are still in the early planning stages and will be able to provide more information in the coming weeks.” Meanwhile, five Tri-City churches will deliver the cold/wet weather mat program to the homeless again this winter. As in the past three years, volunteers at the Coquitlam Alliance Church, Eagle Ridge Bible Fellowship and Calvary Baptist Church in Coquitlam, plus Port Coquitlam’s Northside Foursquare Church and St. Andrew’s United Church in Port Moody will provide meals and temporary accommodation to those in need. email@example.com

Bull and buzz
PICTURE THIS Adrian Raeside
nsomnia, anxiety, allergic reactions, palpitations and withdrawal. Is this a list of symptoms from an illegal drug? No, it’s what adults have known for years are the downsides of drinking too much coffee and tea. Unfortunately, now the kids are emulating their parents by drinking energy drinks that typically have twice the caffeine of regular pop and just about as much as a cup of drip coffee. The kids think these drinks are cool, their logos are eye-catching and they are easy to get at corner stores and grocery outlets. A single can of Red Bull or even Monster falls within Health Canada guidelines for caffeine consumption for older teens but what happens if two or more are drunk in a day? Teens may then face some of the health concerns that adults face when they drink too much coffee (see above). Should the government have taken a tougher stance and prevented these drinks from being sold anywhere but pharmacies? It’s hard to say. The more adults try to regulate teen behaviour, the more challenges they face. And the fact that caffeine is mildly addictive is not lost on companies marketing their products to kids in new and innovative ways. The popularity of these beverages among teens looking for a light buzz is reminiscent of the older generations’ interest in cigarettes. For teens, water is just plain boring, pop is old-school and so is juice, although neither are great as they are typically full of sugar. Of course, energy drinks are not as bad as cigarettes and legions of adults are drinking caffeinated beverages without too many side effects. But are we comfortable with kids picking up an energy drink at lunch or on the way home from school? Probably not. At the very least, parents should be educating themselves as to what their children are ingesting. Health Canada’s suggested limits for daily caffeine intake are roughly 2.5 mg per kilogram of body weight. This guideline will mean little or nothing to the average kid looking for a bit of a buzz and acceptance among his peers. But parents can at least use the new content disclosure rules to find out whether their kids’ drinks measure up.
Premier’s TV stunt won’t solve court problems BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA remier Christy Clark handed her opponents more ammunition last week with her latest “ready, fire, aim” episode, calling for radio and TV coverage of Stanley Cup riot prosecutions. The day after this half-baked idea was announced, Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond had to sign an executive order directing Crown prosecutors to ask judges for broadcast coverage. Prosecutors have enough trouble getting convictions in our stumbling, delay-plagued court system without spending time on TV applications for minor cases. Bond referred reporters to the long list of conditions under which broadcasting may be done from court. In the unlikely event a judge consents to broadcast access, nothing can be aired until at least two hours after a morning or afternoon session has been ad-
journed. Absurdly, everyone involved, from lawyers to witnesses to defendants, has a veto over their image or voice being broadcast. No accused people would consent to that. The rules are designed to fail. I’m all in favour of televising court, not so much to shame perpetrators as to show what a cozy little closed shop it is. I recently sat in on the plea-bargained sentence for James Roy Taylor, the former Fraser Health technology manager caught with his hand in the cookie jar for the second time in his career. Crown and defence lawyers exchanged legalese barely above a whisper, congratulating each other for the elegance of the tap on the wrist they were giving Taylor for accepting multiple benefits in exchange for approving fraudulent invoices for a doctor supplying questionable electronic health services. Taylor has to do community service, pay back the lolly he admits accepting and take a reduced pension on account of being fired as a crook. Poor fellow. Anyone who has sat in court for long sees the endless parade of adjournments

and excuses that routinely substitute for progress. Years ago, I publicized the efforts a pioneering group of youth court observers, ordinary citizens horrified by the sluggish pace of proceedings. Day after day, they saw smirking teens watch lawyers compare schedules before heading off to lunch. Those citizens’ efforts led to a diversion program for first-time offenders to provide timely consequences for their misdeeds. But don’t just take it from me on the state of our courts. Gov. Gen. David Johnston, a law professor before being appointed the Queen’s representative in Canada, gave a speech in August in which he ripped lawyers for violating their social contract with the public with unacceptable delays. “We enjoy a monopoly to practise law,” Johnston told the Canadian Bar Association meeting. “In return, we are duty-bound to serve our clients competently, to improve justice and to continuously create the good. That’s the deal.” As usual, the political debate is nearly
sterile. The NDP wants more judges, prosecutors, sheriffs and courthouses. Pour more money in, just like the school and health systems, says the party that hasn’t had a new idea in 30 years. Bond did propose a new idea last week: Probation orders with conditions will soon be available for those charged with public drunkenness under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act rather than the Criminal Code — although they would still have to go to court. Perhaps the government could take a cue from their recent revision of impaired driving laws, giving police the ability to assess fines and impound vehicles on the spot. Perhaps by the time the next big drunken riot starts to brew, police would actually be able to offer consequences. Going around the court system is the cops’ best bet these days.

TRI-CITYY LETTERS 2 kudos for cops The Editor, While walking on Clarke Street in Port Moody, I came across a group of men all staring into some bushes where a young black bear was hiding. Apparently, these men had gone to work only to find out they couldn’t because this bear was happily eating apples on the adjoining property. They had watched for a while and then decided to try and shoo it away with loud noises from a shovel and hammer. This only succeeded in getting the bear to run and hide between the building and the fence. Someone had called the Port Moody Police and I am thrilled to tell you that these two officers not only did their job but had a great sense of humour. When I initially saw the gun, I asked the officer if he was going to kill the bear. He responded, “Oh yes, we are going to shoot it” and then laughed and said, “No, these are beanbag bullets. They won’t hurt the bear, just scare it.” He then showed me the bullet. I was impressed that he took the time to show and explain this to me. The two officers surveyed the area around the bear and decided which was the best direction to scare him off. One small pop was all I heard and the bear took off running. The gentleman with the shovel and hammer proceeded to make noise to keep the bear from returning to Clarke Street. The officers made sure the bear ran across the alley into the bushes.
This story could have ended very differently. At this point in the season, bears are eating their last meals trying to stock up for a long hibernation. With all the construction and depletion of their land, they are coming into town to find food. Most of these bears do not get relocated. This bear incident had a happy ending but I hope that bear does not return and get labelled a “problem bear” — we all know what happens to them. Thanks to the Port Moody Police officers who responded, they were great guys. Calais McNabb, Port Moody

HIS KIND OF RCMP
The Editor, At 1:15 a.m. on Oct. 5, I became aware of a non-emergency, but nonetheless worrisome, situation in front of our home (across from a former grow-op). After quietly observing for a few minutes, I decided to call the police instead of becoming involved myself. Within 10 to 15 minutes, Coquitlam RCMP officers showed up, took charge of the situation in an efficient, polite and expert manner. Thank you, officers, well done indeed. I was able to go back to sleep wondering what we would do if we did not have such dedicated young officers to help us when we are in need and watch over us. That was my kind of RCMP. K. Bernaschek, Coquitlam
Merge sensibly on Shaughnessy St. The Editor, There is a traffic challenge happening on Shaughnessy Street southbound between Lougheed Highway and the railway underpass: People driving along Shaughnessy towards downtown in the outside lane see a sign indicating that their lane will be closed ahead. Overly polite people often try to change lanes far before reaching the barrier ahead, thinking they would be rude to go to the end of the lane and budge in.
Tri-City News Wednesday, October 12, 2011, A11 FUTURE FUTUR UTURE E SHOP SHOP – Correction Notice Notice
That thinking is wrong. People need to move all the way forward to the barrier so that traffic doesn’t build up behind them. Such build-up has been tying up the Lougheed/Shaughnessy intersection. When cars fill up the lane that is eventually blocked off, that lane is being used for the purpose it was intended. Merging then usually occurs on a polite basis of every other car going forward at the narrowing point. Julie Roberts, Port Coquitlam

A former Green Party candidate who has run both provincially and federally has set her sights on a Port Moody council seat in this fall’s civic election. Rebecca Helps filed her nomination papers last week and vowed that if elected she would work closely with regional authorities to push for construction of the Evergreen Line. She said she would govern “as though the greatest challenge we face is climate change” and wants the city to take a leadership role in the region in combating the problem. Helps, who has lived in Por t Moody her whole life, said her experience as a system analyst would help her in achieving her other goal: streamlining city departments to make them more efficient.

She works for the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union, representing BC Hydro employees, among other workers. Junker outlined what

“These kids don’t want anything to do with daycare but they may not be ready to be on their own.”
The play’s the thing for youth in Detour
Measure twice and mentor Step-by-Step Child Development Society celebrates 30 years with new programs in Coq. Articles by Diane Strandberg THE TRI-CITY NEWS
enovation fixer and television star Mike Holmes has some competition in Grade 5 student Nicholas Pengelley. The 12-year-old recently gave woodworking safety tips to his peers at an after-school program run by Step-by-Step Child Development Society. “Measure twice, cut once because you can’t re-glue it,” Pengelley told the other children sternly as he demonstrated the proper way of cutting a two-by-four. Soon, the girls drifted away to other demos on sewing and crafts but some of the boys stuck around for the woodworking workshop, which Pengelley, a mentor in Stepby-Step’s newest program, gave with equal measures of passion and patience. Pengelley is one of three Como Lake middle school students who are mentors in the program for students aged 10 and up at the Scout Hall in Coquitlam’s Blue Mountain Park. The other mentors are Caroline Pengelley, who is teaching sewing, and Angelina Gordo, the craft expert. The mentors are passing on their skills to younger kids and, in return, get gifts such as recreation passes, so their participation in the program is more like a job. “It’s a great way to build confidence and it helps them organize their learning,” said Debra Smith,
executive director of Step-by-Step. The organization has had to be creative to meet the changing needs of families over the years and the mentor program is just one of several new initiatives. Smith said it was developed to address the gap in after-school care for middle school kids, most of whom think they are too old to be supervised. Their parents, meanwhile, aren’t ready to let their kids go home alone and so the program was developed to meet a 12- to 13-year-old’s need for independence and their parents’ comfort level. “These kids don’t want anything to do with daycare,” Smith said, “but they may not be ready to be on their own.” It’s just one of four programs Step-by-Step is launching this fall at the Blue Montain Scout Hall as it marks its 30th anniversary with new services for families. Smith said the organization is recruiting new partners and the Scout Hall location is on Coquitlam’s west side, an area that hadn’t been tapped. There is also a new skills enhancement pre-school program starting up at the hall, in addition to the mentorship program, and an out-of-school care program, which has room for more kids, as well as a new family resource centre opening this month that will run daily from 10 to 11:30 a.m. with support from the United Way. The skills enhancement program is for children age three to five years who are not currently receiving services from a speech and language or occupational therapist and who might need a boost in their fine or gross motor skills, or more opportunities for socializing with their peers, before kindergarten.

Step-by-Step Child Development Society is celebrating 30 years of service to families in the Tri-Cities by opening new programs in the Scout Hall at Blue Mountain Park. Above, Nicholas Pengelley demonstrates woodworking skills to Emily Myers, Angelina Gordo and Brianna Yerxa. Top, Caroline Pengelley shows Lexa Galbraith how to sew as part of a mentorship program for middle school children. Smith said it’s staffed by a child specialist, speech and language therapist and an occupational therapist and set up like an obstacle course with several stations. “They have the children attend to certain tasks and learn to manipulate their body in space so they can handle the six hours of kindergarten or school,” Smith said. Strong Start facilitators in the area will soon get information on the program so they can refer parents whose children might be able to benefit from the extra individualized support, she said. In the three decades that Stepby-Step has been around to provide programs and resources for fami-
lies, much has changed and Smith said the organization is constantly adapting to meet demands for new services. When it started in 1979, the society’s mission was to provide programs and services for families with children with special needs and was based at Harbour View elementary in Coquitlam. It has since expanded to other areas of Coquitlam, Port Moody and Port Coquitlam and broadened its mandate to include all children. “Here we are at 30 years, we’ve evolved and changed.” Smith said. • More information can be found at www.step-by-step.ca. firstname.lastname@example.org
Young people with passion and something to say are wanted for a theatre group called Detour, sponsored by the PoCoMo Youth Society. Tina D’Amelio, who is leading the group, says 10 young people aged 14 to 18 are needed for the project, which will culminate in a local production in April. “We feel the youth have a story and a message, and we want to help them get it out there,” said D’Amelio. Previous acting experience is not necessary, D’Amelio said, and dancing or singing experience is an asset, not a requirement because the young people will write the production working with whatever skills and talents they have. D’Amelio, who is also a School District 43 counsellor, said she took on the opportunity to work with PoCoMo and the Detour group as a way to get back into theatre. Before becoming a counsellor at Sir Frederick Banting middle school, she was an actress and drama teacher, and ran drama clubs. “When you’re an artist and you don’t get to do your art, you have to find a way to make it work,” D’Amelio said, noting she plans to teach the young people the skills they need to put on their own production. Youth can be self referred or referred by a school, individual or community organization for the free program, which will rehearse Thursdays from 7 to 9 p.m. at Douglas College, David Lam Campus, C building, Room C1028. Help may be available for those with transportation issues. The program is partially sponsored by Westminster Savings Credit Union. • For more information, email email@example.com or call 604-525-1888. firstname.lastname@example.org

Forbidden love brings ‘bitter’ and ‘sweet’ to novel that delves into past recently picked up a copy of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweett on the recommendation of a friend. I read the book and am I ever glad I did. This is one of those stories you wish would continue after you’ve finished the last page. It is so beautifully written, it almost reads itself. Set in Seattle, the story deals with ChineseAmerican man, Henry Lee. He has lived on the edge of Japantown for most of his life and after his wife passes away, an unusual event happens as he is walking through the area. The old Panama Hotel is being restored and the new owners have found the belongings of a number of Japanese people — things that had been stored there prior to their owners being sent to encampments during World War II. This discovery and the memories that ensue lead us to the story of Henry as a boy. His was a traditional family but his father sends him to the American school so his son will be able to get ahead in the world. It is not an easy transition. He learns to deal with bullies and those who look down upon him. Henry is neither his father’s perfect Chinese son nor his schoolmates American equal. On the upside, he meets a wonderful Japanese girl, Keiko, who faces the same prejudices and they are two against the world at school. When the Japanese attack Pearl Harbour, life changes for Henry, Keiko and their families. Henry’s father is very anti-Japanese because of the events in China. He is appalled at his son’s friend-

Henry becomes even closer to Keiko and her family, and this drives him to help his new friends against the injustices they face. This is only part of the story, though. Henry, a widower, needs to come to terms with his loneliness and with his son, with whom he has never been close. The story is, as the title states, both bitter and sweet. What I loved about it was how real the story felt, almost if it was someone you knew recalling their life, with its ups and downs, excitements and sorrows. Author Jamie Ford has written a beautiful novel describing the clashes between cultures, eras and generations. It reminds me of Snow Falling on Cedarss or The House of Sand and Fog in how the stories deal with the clash of cultures and forbidden love. Any of these three books would make excellent reads.

How do you resolve issues, concerns, demands or challenges? Small business owners are constantly managing multiple conﬂicts with everyone from customers, suppliers to regulators. It is how they deal with these issues that matters in their life and their business. I’ve always said that conﬂict can be as good for you as a great piece of chocolate, because when you get to resolve it, the release and the relief that one can derive from it— both in the brain and in health is astonishing.

bout four years ago, Nabil Amarshi was coming off a tour in the U.A.E. when he decided he wasn’t quite ready to come home. The Coquitlam native was in Dubai and found quite a lot of work around for freelance musicians, especially in Middle Eastern countries like Syria, Jordan, Qatar and Bahrain. So he stayed. And he never looked back. Since then, the Centennial secondary grad (class of 2000) has kept busy with big annual projects, composing music and playing his bass. Last year proved to be successful when he and his ensemble, called People Playing Music, were approached by film director Mahmoud Kaabour to supply a score for his new work, a 48-minute long documentary titled Teta, Alf Marra (Grandma, A Thousand Times). The movie reflects on Kaabour’s relationship with his grandmother and their love for her late husband, who was an accomplished violist and played with the greats in Beirut and other Middle Eastern countries until the 1980s. Kaabour offered his grandfather’s original improv recordings to Amarshi, which he intertwined in the film with his own contemporary music. The task was a challenge, he said. At that point, Amarshi had only worked on student films and, though he had lived in the region for a few years, he had never formally studied 24-tone Arab music and didn’t know
how to compose it. But he had fellow musicians to help: Besides his ensemble, Amarshi gathered two Syrian percussionists and a local violin soloist to build the soundtrack. Since the film debuted in 2010, Teta has won numerous accolades; recently, it took the top prize at the London International Documentary Festival and, this and last week, it has been featured at the Vancouver International Film Festival (www. viff.org). Its last screening is tomorrow (Thursday) at 6 p.m. at Empire Granville 7 Cinema (855 Granville St., Vancouver). For Amarshi, who was at last Saturday’s showing for the film’s Canadian premiere, having the documentary at VIFF feels like a full circle. The son of Shabir Amarshi, a past president of the Tri-Cities’ Chamber of Commerce, Nabil Amarshi grew up in Coquitlam, first playing the piano, then later, guitar and trumpet in the Centennial secondary band. He picked up the bass at the high school after hearing recordings from jazz legend Miles Davis, who had a bassist named Ron Carter in his 1960s band “and I just absolutely fell in love with him and his sound,” Amarshi recalled. “I started to play the bass and that was it, really.” A graduate of Humber College of the Performing Arts in Toronto, Amarshi said he looks forward to working more in the film industry. Currently, he’s lined up to write the soundtrack for an Egyptian movie, titled The Art of Flying. firstname.lastname@example.org

Second show for LaNaDa By Janis Warren THE TRI-CITY NEWS
Nancie Green rarely goes on Facebook but, a few years back, it was suggested to her by a girlfriend to use the popular social media network to reconnect with someone she had lost touch with. That “someone” was David Miller, a Vancouver artist whom Green had known when he played in a band with her late sister — nearly 30 years ago. The girlfriend knew that both Miller and Green, a Port Moody resident, were skilled in photography and digital composition and thought they should meet again to combine their talents. The reunion proved successful and, two years later — along with Green’s other sister, Lanni Sulje, an oil and watercolour painter — they formed the LaNaDa Artists Faction, with the aim to work in different media but with common themes. Their first exhibit, titled Three Art Harmony, was staged last year at The Grind and Gallery Coffee Baron on Main Street in Vancouver. For their second showcase, the faction will be at Coquitlam’s Place des Arts, where they will display about 30 pieces as part of their new collection, in the Leonore Peyton Salon. The exhibit opens tomorrow (Thursday), with a gala reception to be held on Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. at the Maillardville facility. Green said the partnership has spurred a lot of production and creativity for the trio — not to mention, mutual support. Miller has a printer while Green and Sulje help with framing (the sisters used

to own PoCo Place Gallery). Sometimes, the artists will visit a spot and use their respective media to interpret a scene — thus, the title of their latest collaboration, Never a Place. “David has a unique eye: he will photograph something in Vancouver that’s not your normal postcard shots,” Green said, adding, “We have an artists’ statement for this show [quoting writer and painter Henry Miller] that reads: ‘Destination is never a place but, rather, a new way of looking at things.’ “We, as artists, as well as the audience, bring our own experiences to it.” Green, who also does fantasy and science fiction artwork, said the LaNaDa show will highlight places from Vancouver to Venice. One of her pieces, titled Against the Sky, details a historic building in the old city of Matera, Italy, which was the backdrop used in Mel Gibson’s blockbuster, The Passion of the Christ. Meanwhile, also starting Thursday, Place des Arts will exhibit Everything but the Lightt (oil paintings) by Carly Bates in the Atrium Gallery as well as My Heaven (acrylics and oils on canvas) by Shin Jae Yu in the Mezzanine Gallery. • For more information, visit Place des Arts at 1120 Brunette Ave. or call at 604-664-1636. firstname.lastname@example.org

Chorus hopes to strike gold An all-female a cappella chorus that includes 16 Tri-City residents will try to score a gold medal at a contest in Houston, TX, next week. In 2009, the Lions Gate Chorus was named the runners-up at the Sweet Adelines International convention in Nashville and, in 2007 in Calgary, it took third spot “so history would suggest that we come first this year,” said director Sandy Robinson Marron, a former Port Moody resident. “We’ve never won internationally so there’s a lot of pres-

Stage 43, a community theatre group in the Tri-Cities, launches its 2011-’12 season with Ethan Claymore, a play written by Norman Foster wset in a small Ontario town.
Stage 43 opens with a romantic-comedy By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS
One of the best ways to beat the dreary, rainy days that dog us this time of year is to shelter yourself in live theatre — and laugh. “We do surveys asking our audiences what they prefer to see and comedies are generally at the top of the list,” said Stage 43’s Jim Harrison, producer of the romantic-comedy Ethan Claymore, which hits Coquitlam’s Evergreen Cultural Centre stage tomorrow night at 8 p.m, for the first of seven shows to kick off the troupe’s 30th season. Ethan is a widower of five years and living a solitary life as an egg farmer when Douglas, his friend and neighbour, grows determined to get his life back on track. Douglas awakes Ethan late one night and offers him a must-do list to break his slump and, before long, gets an unexpected ally to help: the ghost of Ethan’s deceased brother. Both try their best to show Ethan

that life is not be taken for granted, with proof coming when an attractive, intelligent female school teacher comes calling. Scripted by seasoned playwright Norman Foster and set in small-town Ontario in 1978, Ethan Claymore is a true celebration of the importance of friends and family. Foster himself says, “It’s the stories that touch an audience’s heart as well as its funnybone that are the most rewarding.” And offers Ric Wellwood of CFLP Radio, “[It’s] a story which warms the heart, coaxes the occasional tear and paints the kind of world we think we deserve.” Ethan Claymore runs Thursday through Saturday at Evergreen (1205 Pinetree Way) at 8 p.m., along with a 2 p.m. Sunday performance. It returns Oct. 19 to 22 at the same venue and night time start. • For tickets and/or more information, visit www.stage43.org or call the Evergreen box office at 604-9276555. firstname.lastname@example.org

Zack Holstrom of the Coquitlam Express breaks in alone on Powell River Kings goalie Jamie Phillips during a B.C. Hockey League battle Sunday at Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex. The Express won, 4-3.
Express, Petan power way up the ranks By Larry Pruner Coquitlam Express posted a pair of key victories but star forward Alex Petan was the biggest winner last weekend. Petan rifled in three goals in the Express’s 6-3 victory Friday over the Langley Rivermen, then scored a dynamite, top-shelf marker Sunday in his team’s 4-3 upset of the Powell River Kings. The results at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Complex boosted Coquitlam’s win streak to three games and culminated in
Petan, 19, signing a scholarship offer from Michigan Tech University. “He has been a workhorse for us,” Express assistant coach Grant Kerr relayed via the team’s website. “His diligence is his off-season work- PETAN outs has paid huge dividends as he’s stronger and playing with more confidence.” Against Langley, Petan’s third goal proved the winner and gave the Express a 4-3 margin heading into the third period, where
Malcolm McKinney and Coda Engbar netted powerplay goals less than two minutes apart to seal the win. After totalling 33 points in 50 games with the Express last season, Petan already has 12 points, including seven goals, in seven outings thus far this campaign. Brady Shaw also struck net for the winners. The Express outshot the Rivermen by a lopsided 42-21 count. Versus Powell River, Shaw’s shorthanded tally 7:30 into the third period proved the winner as Coquitlam managed only 20 shots on the Kings’ cage while surrendering 30
on their own. The 6-2 Kings visit 4-3 Coquitlam again Friday, 7 p.m. I C I N G : Attendance for F riday night’s game against 2-5 Langley was 732,while it dipped to 605 for Sunday’s matinee affair versus Powell River.
Cats calm Flames before Richmond rips ’em at home
First, the Port Moody Black Panthers blanketed the Ridge Meadows Flames. Then the Cats got utterly smothered by the Richmond Sockeyes. The Cats followed up a gritty 4-3 over the host Flames on Friday with a humbling 9-0 defeat to the surging Sockeyes on Saturday at the Port Moody Rec Complex.
The results left the Cats 3-1-2 atop the fiveteam Harold Brittain Conference standings. The Sockeyes, meanwhile, improved to a perfect 6-0-0 with all of their victories, amazingly, being shutouts. Against the struggling 0-7-0 Flames, Julian Klaric bagged a shorthanded goal with fewer than four minutes late to net the deciding
goal. Dylan Friel scored twice earlier for the Cats, with Martin Campbell’s powerplay goal with 6:24 to play knotting the count 3-3 and setting the stage for Klaric’s heroics. Versus Richmond, the visitors outshot the Cats by a staggering 60-22 margin, including 25-8 in the middle stanza.

COQUITLAM METRO-FORD SOCCER PLAYERS of the WEEK TAYLOR BORGHESIS
TAYLOR BORGHESIS, has had a strong season as the sweeper of the Internazionale Under 18 team. His consistent performances, his agility and quick thinking have enabled him to achieve a great deal of success with the Coquitlam Metro-Ford Soccer Club. Taylor is the type of player that never gives up and ﬁghts hard for every ball. Taylor’s determination and resilience have been huge contributing factors in him being chosen as Metro-Ford Player of the week. For his outstanding performances over the past few of weeks, TAYLOR BORGHESIS has been selected as Coquitlam Metro-Ford Male Player of the Week!
Despite the fact that the Under 17 Diablos dropped a 1-0 decision to the very strong Vancouver Road Runners, defender JESSICA ARTHUR turned in an amazing performance. The ﬁrst half was dominated by the speed and skill of the Vancouver team and only some tenacious defending on the part of Jessica kept the scoreline respectable. The Road Runners’ vaunted attack was thwarted time after time by the Metro-Ford defence, led by Jessica. Not only did she cause numerous turnovers, but she also displayed some excellent leadership qualities in guiding her backline. For her excellent performance this past weekend, JESSICA ARTHUR has been chosen Coquitlam Metro-Ford Female Player of the Week.

Basso buries another goal By Larry Pruner THE TRI-CITY NEWS
C o q u i t l a mâ€™s C a r l o Basso keeps racking up the goals, and his SFU Clan keep piling up the wins. The Clan university menâ€™s soccer team won a wild game Saturday, defeating host Hawaii Pacific University, 5-1. For SFU, it was another win against a ranked team as the Clan are polled third in the NCAA Div. 2 soccer list to Hawaii Pacificâ€™s fifth in the West Region rankings of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. With the win, SFU now sits at 11-0-0, including 5-0-0 in Great Northwest Athletic Conference play. Hawaii Pacific is 9-4 on the year â€“â€“ 6-1 in conference play. While the team had to battle one of their toughest opponents of the season, they were also up against the heat and a raucous crowd of over 300 HPU fans.
â€œTonightâ€™s match was one of our best performances this season,â€? said SFU head coach Alan Koch. â€œOur team had to deal with tough heat, a tough opponent and a tough crowd. It was an intense game and Iâ€™m proud of the way our team battled to come out on top.â€? SFU jumped out to an early two goal lead in the first half, netting goals in the 19th and 27th minutes before Hawaii cut the margin to 2-1 at halftime. In the second half, it was all Simon Fraser as they scored three unanswered goals, including Bassoâ€™s eighth of the season.
Port Moodyâ€™s Justina DiStasio of the SFU Clan won the womenâ€™s 155-pound weight class at the Oklahoma City Duels wrestling meet Saturday. DiStasio led the Clan with three wins by decision, one technical fall and one by forfeit.
